Hump Day Confessions!

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

I know, it's Wednesday, which means Wonderful Stuff Wednesday. But not today! To be honest, I didn't read, listen to, or come across anything overtly wonderful that I felt was worth sharing with the world today, so instead, I am linking up with Vodka and Soda for some confessions!

- First off, I have no idea what Ryan Gosling has to do with this link-up, but he's pretty, so I'm not arguing.

- I still haven't quit the gym, which means I'm paying $43/month for no damn reason. I might as well light the money on fire. Part of the problem is that I apparently have to show up there between 9 and 6 to cancel my membership, and who has time for that? Not me. I may have to just call them and make a manager cancel my membership for me over the phone. We'll see.

- Sometimes, I eat cereal for dinner. Okay, that's a lot of the time.

- I once owed the library $27 in fines. They still let me borrow books after I paid it, so I think I win? It did take me over 6 months to actually walk in there and pay the fines though, so maybe I lose.

- I bought velcro rollers at the suggestion of my friend Pam, but I have no idea how to use them. Send help. And wine.

- It's been a year and seven months since Ken and I got married and I still haven't watched our wedding video. Megan over at Freckled Italian posted hers (she got married on May 3rd!) and it reminded me that we never watched ours. Don't ask me how that happened. I think right after we got married, we were so sick of all things wedding-related that I threw the DVD's into a box and said we'd watch it later. Later hasn't happened yet. Perhaps later will be this weekend.

- To be perfectly honest, I'm kind of afraid to watch the video because I'm afraid I'll hate how I look. I had lost 40 pounds at that point, but I still wasn't where I wanted to be, weight-wise. There are some wedding photos that I look at that make me cringe, so I'm hoping that seeing it on video doesn't make me want to jump out of a window.

- I seriously need a pedicure. My feet are super gross.

- If there is ice cream in the house, I will eat it. This is why there's usually not any ice cream in the house. The same thing goes for brownies. Or pie. Not so much for cake and cookies. But sometimes. Basically, I am a child and have no self-control.

- I only learned how to wear eyeliner last year. I'm still not very good at it.

- I talk to my cats. A lot. In fact, there may or may not be a blog post in the wings about the things I've said to my cats.

- This week, I printed over 200 pages of scholarship application documents at work. I think I may have killed an entire forest. Sorry, owls and other woodland creatures.

- I'm blogging at work right now. Do I have things I could be doing? Sure, but there are 26 work days left and this is more fun.

- One of my best friends is having a baby and I am super happy for her but also super envious because I want to be at a place in my life where Ken and I can think about babies and we just aren't there yet. But isn't her pregnancy announcement adorable???

Their baby boy is due in September! I can't wait to knit him so many things!
- I seriously want to punch people who hum, whistle, chew with their mouths open, clink their silverware on their plates, smoke where it clearly says NO SMOKING, or who have no volume control. See also: Most of the people in Philadelphia.

- I am in a near-constant state of meltdown between house stuff and school stuff. And life stuff. I am surprised and thankful every day that Ken puts up with me, and he doesn't even have to drink to do so! (At least, not that I know of, anyway.)

- I bought, wrote-out, and addressed a Mother's Day card for my step-mom, but it requires extra postage so I haven't sent it yet. Better late than never?

- I am seeing a movie tonight with my friend Lindsey and it's not until 9:50 pm. I am totally going to regret this decision tomorrow morning, because I am a hundred years old.

So, what are your confessions? Do you like this feature better than Wonderful Stuff Wednesdays? Should I switch it up? Tell me your thoughts (and your secrets) in the comments!

  1. I'm awful about applying eyeliner too. It's no good. And not only do I hate when people smoke in areas designated non-smoking, but I hate when they smoke anywhere in my vicinity!

    1. I can't stand smokers either... but at the very least, they can do it in their own, smoky, areas, right!?

      And eyeliner. Who invented that? Nothing but problems.

  2. ryan was a lure to get people to join this linkup. i figure if that pic beckons them with "hey girl, heeeeeeyyyyy come join the linkup", people would come. it worked! :D

    thanks for linking up!

    Vodka and Soda

    1. It totally worked! Well done, lady. And thanks for hosting! Love your blog. :)

  3. This makes me think of Chandler and Ross trying to quit the gym on Friends. Have you seen that episode? It's one of my favorites!

    1. Haha, I don't think I have, but now I want to go find it!

  4. Hahahaha... I talk to my dog so I totally get what you mean!!! I swear, I have entire one way conversations with him on the regular!

    1. Haha, I wish our pets would answer sometimes! My cats are so talkative that I am guessing they have SOMETHING important to say, right?

  5. I do like confessions a lot actually. This was fun to read :) - I'm intrigued to see how many weeks worth of confessions you can come up with.

    1. I really like coming up with them every week! I also like reading everyone else's, too. :)


Leave me a note! I always reply and I love meeting other bloggers!
