Confessions of a Mad Unpacker

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Hello lovelies! Today I'm blogging in a Starbucks on Penn's campus, so I feel very much like a college student. Thankfully, I'm no longer a college student (although in a mere 5 days, I'll be a med student, which is INSANE) and right now, I'm some kind of combination of unemployed-soon-to-be-student-grown-up but I definitely don't feel like one. But it's Wednesday, so it's time for everyone's favorite... confessions!

Vodka and Soda

- Once again, I totally lied about being back for Listed Tuesdays... mainly because there was nowhere to link-up, but also because yesterday I spent most of the day sleeping and then running errands. Sorry, guys. Lists will be back next week. I hope. I make no promises.

- I am definitely a crazy cat lady and may have convinced my husband to let me adopt another cat. Keep your fingers crossed that he doesn't change his mind, that we get approved, and that the kitty we want is still available.

- Still haven't quit the gym... but I'm going to go tomorrow. Or Friday. Definitely by Friday.

- I asked the barista at Starbucks to remake my drink today b/c my mocha frappucino somehow tasted like strawberry. Wash out your blenders, people! And yeah, I did feel bad about it. I don't want to be "that person". I guess I am now. Whoops.

- I had a huge crying meltdown in my therapist's office today. I guess that's the place to do it, but I was definitely doing the ugly cry. Sorry for using all of your tissues, therapist.

- Speaking of therapy, I can't see my therapist next week or possibly for all of August because I don't know my class schedule for the week of the 11th and she's off the last 2 weeks of the month. I may lose my mind. You've been warned.

- Our cats really do not understand two-story living or hardwood floors. It's greatly amusing to me, although I do feel bad that they're sliding all over the place and crying when they can't find us.

- I was walking to my therapy appointment today and totally had a freak out because I couldn't find my iPhone for work. It took me a minute to realize that I no longer have an iPhone for work, or for anything. I'm unemployed! Cue more freaking out.

- I alternately wanted to throw up today when I got my student loan documents. Yay, I have money and can pay for school... boo, I have so much debt I will die before it is paid off. Someone send booze this way.

- I just realized I may have been flashing the people on the street outside of this Starbucks. I am sitting in front of a plate glass window while wearing a skirt and I was not sitting like a lady. ::crosses legs::

- I'm super excited about my new blogging friend, Marcie, and I wish she lived closer than Indianapolis because we would have the best time knitting, going to Target, and hanging out in our pajamas.

- I am nervous about my rheumatologist appointment today because he may stick a giant needle full of cortisone in my hip. He may also tell me that it's totally cool to stop taking my birth control. Or he's going to tell me that it's totally not cool and I can't have a baby because my body sucks at life. Either way, cue freaking out.

- My white coat ceremony is on Sunday and I am alternately super excited and totally anxious. THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING.

Life, you guys. It's really happening. Whoa.

So, those are my confessions for this week. I have to get going so I can drive across Philadelphia to my appointment and pray to the parking gods that there is street parking near my doctor's office. Perhaps tomorrow you'll get an update about moving. I have so many pictures to share, it's not even funny. Well, some of them are funny. You'll just have to wait and see! Don't forget to head over to Vodka and Soda to link up your own confessions and to read everyone else's secrets as well!

  2. Girrrlll there is no shame requesting that the barista remakes your drink given their prices haha. Also, I'll be paying off my student loans WELL after my future kids are born and going to college themselves haha. Love your blog! Your lastest follower. :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by!! I added your blog to my reader as well. Love a good rant! And whoo hoo, cheers to being in debt forever. Thank God for wine, amiright?

  3. I've gone to a totally different Starbucks to have them fix my drink before. I felt bad, but my drink tasted burnt and it was nasty. I was super happy I had done it, sometimes you gotta just do it!


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