life seen thru the eyes of a neurotic 20 something gal in search of something, nothing, and everything....but not all at once...I think.

Bark down

Baxter has met his match. Another dog, who is dashing and adorable, identical in size and color has entered the mix. He has regular "bark down" where he stands angrily barks and growls for up to 30 minutes. He refuses to back away from this fierce competitor and is perplexed as to his behavior. Every move he makes is mirrored only without sound. He tilts his head in confusion and gets angrier with each passing second. I wonder when he will figure out this is just his reflection.

What were you thinking?

My roommate and I were sitting in the Atlanta airport patiently waiting for the plane to board. Out of the corner of my eye a young woman walked in front of us. Not being a part of the anorexic club myself I can appreciate a woman who is healthy. However, being a "healthy" woman of larger proportions should not cloud your ability to dress yourself appropriately. That includes but is not limited to wearing pants that fit and do not cut off circulation to the "va jay-jay", your legs, or toes. I know I am not the only one who thought those seams were crying out for relief that day.

That stomach flipping feeling when you meet someone you totally have chemistry with.....I forgot how great that can be. Damn it---why did he have to move?!

Refreshing confusion

Wow. The past week has been a haze of happiness, anger, sadness, excitement, laughter, and utter surprise. I got to hang out with a super hot, smart, funny man for some time and just found out he is now moving. Bummer. Went to Georgia and South Carolina for the weekend. I got to see the Atlantic Ocean for the first time. I laughed so much with some good friends I cried! I was surprised to hear back from an interesting employment offer on the back burner. I finally got to hear from the Japanese goddess who is unfortunately miserable there. So many things this week swirling and bubbling away. I am curious to see what the rest of the fall brings me:)

It's great to be an adult

The weather is lovely today. A hair below 70 with blinding sunshine and a gentle breeze. To start off our glorious day I have the breakfast of champions: left over pizza and a coke. Baxter joined me in rebellion by eat a huge glob of peanut butter, his favorite treat outside of milkbones. It's great to be an adult this morning. I guess at my age you should be, huh?

Furry kids

I love dogs..I just absolutely adore them. I am petsitting for a friend this weekend. I am strongly reconsidering why the hell I agreed to do it in the first place. I am positive that my decision to get a small dog and see how well that goes before kids was clearly a very good idea. Dogs are furry kids and someone should have spoken up before I got one.

5 year plan?

There has been a slew of interviews and questionaires on just how goal oriented am I, how do I measure success, and where do I see myself in 5 years. Can I just say I don't know where I see myself in 5 weeks. So where does that put me on the ladder of success?
