A dream within a dream

Before I say anything, I have to first note that I just saw someone cough up blood right as I was crunching down on a pretzel m&m... Ew. Ok, moving on...

This summer I am embracing my paleness and am actually going to make an effort NOT to waste any time laying out, but only being in the sun while doing something active and or productive. Like gardening, or picnicking, or swimming, etc. Don't get me wrong, I love just laying in the sun, but I am going to make a conscious effort not to just be doing it for the sake of getting tan, but for the sake of enjoyment. I will be working a lot this summer, so the last thing I need on my mind is the constant pressure of feeling like every spare moment I have needs to be hopping into a bikini and coating myself in tanning oils. Thus I will get the most out of whatever little free time I will have over the next few months. Thank you and good night.

The best medicine... wedgie cream?

Today I decided something: I wanna laugh more.

Laughing is my favorite thing to do in the world. Seriously, if you bump into me in the street and ask me what brings me the most joy and what I love doing, I will say "laughing" without even thinking about it. I've always loved to laugh. I think everyone does, but it's weird how I don't really think about being pro-active about laughing these days. I mean, when you're a kid you kind of base your whole world and life and every decision on what will bring the most laughter to yourself and your family and friends. Why isn't that still my mantra?

Rest-of-February resolution: do more funny stuff and laugh more. Be silly. Learn how to be more funny. Practice laughing in every situation (restrictions apply. Funerals? Common. Not gonna do that). Figure out what makes people around me chuckle and do that more.

I gotta loosen up. Get free and live like I'm free! And heck, I'm jobless right now too so I think I have no excuse not to just be crazy happy all the time. What's the sense in being stressed about being UNemployed until I get a job and am stressed about being EMployed? Dumb.

As first act in my new silly self, I declare that I will make it my mission to get at least 3 people to really belly laugh at/with me in the next 24 hours. Am I biting off more than I can chew? Probs. But, even if it fails miserably, it could potentially be a success later. For, as my wonderful boyfriend states confidently, "tragedy+time=comedy." (He first used this little number to pacify me in the aftermath of giving a "girlfriend wedgie")...
...And yes, I am still waiting for that equation to come to it's full expression... *fingers crossed in a sarcastic manner*

Random thought of the day

Breakfast is the best thing that ever happened to this world. Sometimes as I'm falling asleep I'll think about what I want for breakfast and I'll get so excited that it takes even longer for me to drift off. Is that something I should share on the internet?

Today is week two of the job search. In trying to get the most out of my current unemployment, I am determined to embrace everything that comes along with all this (hopefully) short amount of free time.

Things on the agenda include but are not limited to... get a haircut, buy new underwear, blog (check!), renew inspection sticker on van, etc... a.k.a. my life is awesome right now in a "got nothin' going on" kinda way while also being lame in a "no excuse gotta run this errand" kinda way.

I've been cooking more things from scratch, which has been great because I forgot how much I love the process from beginning to end. Ingredients all separated out, mixing things step by step, multitasking, tasting, sharing what you've created with someone AND last but not least (and surprisingly my favorite part) washing the dishes and putting things back in order afterwards.

Also, it's kind of fun to send out an application to something you're actually excited about maybe doing. In my case I'm looking for more of the "we'll pay you oodles and oodles to file your nails" kind of thing. OK, I'm kidding! I wanna work! I want a challenge! I want to contribute to society, dangit!

You guys are awesome for reading my blog and I really am going to try to write more and keep thangs real.
