Listed Wednesday Confession Link Up

Wednesday, July 9, 2014

It's Wednesday! We're halfway through this week (which is sadly 5 days, not 4.) But...

Vodka and Soda

Time for some Hump Day Confessions with Kathy of Vodka and Soda!  I was very sad that yesterday, there was no Listed Tuesday link-up because Erica was having some technical difficulties with her blog and the internet kind of ate it for awhile. It's back now, though, so since I'm listing my confessions, I am going to link up with Erica as well! Here we go!

So Much Sunshine
Listed Tuesday... on Wednesday!
- Yes, I'm aware it's kind of cheating to have two link-ups in one post. I'm not sorry.

- I have been feeling absolutely overwhelmed and stressed and uninspired to do anything. I'm in a place where everything feels horrible and I kind of hate everyone, so I don't feel great. It's not fun.

- I may or may not have watched 14 episodes of Scandal between Saturday and Sunday. I have 4 episodes left and I am going to go through withdrawal when it's over.

- Today, I interviewed yet another candidate for my job, since the last 2 people we offered it to accepted and then withdrew. My criteria for this candidate was essentially, "Is he a living, breathing, carbon-based life form that can sit at a desk?" As long as he met those requirements and pinky-swore that he wouldn't un-accept the job once he'd signed the contract, I was ready to hire him.

- I am feeling an unnatural need to throw things out. This is probably because we just started packing for the move that is happening in two and a half weeks.

- I really wish that I could get up and shower in the morning, but I like sleep, so I shower at night.

- I have 9 work days left and I am trying really hard to care about... anything happening in those 9 days, but I kind of can't.

- I am extremely prone to meltdowns right now, and I feel like I need to wear a warning sign or something in case one happens in public.

- I'm seeing a new doctor tomorrow and I'm nervous.

- Ken and I went furniture shopping on Monday night and he was so cranky that I wanted to strangle him. I didn't, because I am a nice person who likes not being a felon. Oh, and I love my husband and all that, I guess.

- I'm really glad my dad is going on his stupid 3 week trip to Europe next week because it means I won't have to hear about it anymore.

- It fills me with rage when people don't know how to use Google or Craigslist. Especially when I know those people are otherwise intelligent human beings.

-  I made my therapist laugh on Tuesday, and it made me really happy. She wasn't laughing at me. I hope.

- I'm obsessed with "Coffee, Coffee, Buzz, Buzz, Buzz" ice cream and I think it should come in way larger quantities than the pints. However, that would probably be terrible because I'd consume way more of it than I already do, which is already a lot.

-  I am having incredible guilt about leaving my job to go to med school because it means we're going from a 2-income family to a 1-income family. This automatically translates to, "It's MY fault we can't afford _______________" which... even if no one is saying it, is how I feel. Which sucks.

- It makes me incredibly angry that it is not acceptable to say, "I don't know, be a grown up?" when someone asks what they should do or how they should fix a problem. That's usually the answer.

- I worry a lot about a certain friend of mine because she seems depressed but I feel like she doesn't want to talk to me about it and I feel awkward asking if she's okay. Which makes me feel like a bad friend. But I'd also feel like a bad friend if I said something that made her feel worse about whatever is going on.

- We're canceling cable when we move so we can save money, and I'm not happy about it. But I'm being a grown-up and doing it anyway because saving money is important and when you're a grown up, you do things that you don't want to do.

- I think there's probably an ugly-cry that's happening sometime soon, but I haven't been able to "block out the time" to let it happen. I should know better than to try and schedule my emotions.

- In a fit of anxiety, I ruined my nails that had grown out so nicely. I can't stop picking at my skin and I am trying REALLY hard not to pull out my own hair. This is probably... not ideal?

- I'm kind of obsessed with flossing. In fact, I was really excited that the dental hygienist told Ken that he needs to floss, because I've been telling him that for months and now he's doing it. I WIN! (I'm really way too excited about this, aren't I?)

- And lastly, I hate sponsored posts. If you do one, I probably won't read it, unless it's a product I realllllly love already. Sorry. (Not really.)

Anyway, that's all for today. Head over to both link-ups to read other people's lists and confessions, or post your own! For now, I'm off to the neurologist to get injected with some lidocaine. Party time, right?

  1. I do the same thing in link-ups #notsorry

    1. Haha, glad that it's not just me. ALL THE LINK-UPS!

  2. i'm the same with sponsored posts except i did one and it was for a mustache hair remover and those things are the jam because every woman has a lady stache. also, the product is amazing. if it's a truly amazing product, i'll read it but if not, i move on. like i need another tampon product? no thanks; i have Always.

    thanks for linking up!

    1. Exactly! I also don't need to know how you feel about toilet paper or plastic bags or anything weird like that. We all use toilet paper, leave me alone. :)

  3. Sorry about your friend- maybe just send a note that you're thinking of her and here if she wants to talk?

    1. I've told her before that I'm here for her, but she's a very private person, so I think that for now, I am going to just keep my mouth shut. She has lots of other friends, so I'm sure she is talking to someone.

  4. Yes I want to tell people to be a grown up! I mean I am prone to a bit of a pity party now and then but some people....ugh. Or those people that listen to your advice but don't take it?? Same problem there.

    1. Yeah, I have totally been in a place where I just need to vent, not get advice, but I try to preface conversations with that so my friends aren't trying to solve a problem that I don't need them to solve. But seriously, just... BE A GROWN UP, people!

  5. Scandal is SO good, I can hardly blame you!

  6. Thanks for bearing with my technical difficulties! Love your confessions! I am totally ready to cancel my cable in a month when my contract is up. So over it!


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