the next 20
Monday. 2.25.13 12:01 am
21. I'm a big list-writer. I plan everything with them, from packing for a trip to celebrations--everything. Not just shopping lists and the like. It's borderline obsessive.

22. Doctor Who is one of my favorite shows, and I sometimes see people on campus with Doctor Who t-shirts on and give them high-fives.

23. I love running into people I know more than just about anything else that happens throughout my day.

24. If I can make someone attractive smile, it makes me so giddy.

25. Even more than that, if I can make someone who really doesn't emote much laugh? It feels so rewarding.

26. If you know how to cook real Southern food, we're immediately friends.

27. I am completely in love with everything Anne Hathaway says or does.

28. This year brought about the first time I've ever ended on bad terms with a boyfriend (--or, an ex-boyfriend, by then, but it's still bad terms).

29. And so I'm left with this awkward, "What do I do with the elephant he got me" feeling, because I don't really want to look at it, and I'm not sentimental enough to keep it somewhere, and I'm not rude enough to toss it, and I'm not evil enough to sell it, so it's just sitting on my top shelf, waiting for judgement day.

29.5. I just realized that this makes it THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM



30. I've never liked any living situation where I couldn't walk around naked at any given moment.

31. Hoping for a private backyard, when I get my own place. Not much else matters.

32. I've been thinking more and more about getting my motorcycle license. My car is getting old and unreliable.

33. I think it's really aggravating how America makes it seem like people admitting to their faults is enough. Yeah, you still have to work on them! You can't just go, "Yeah I'm a shitty person and that is very unfortunate."

34. From what I've seen, there are very few straight, single males on my campus who are educated without being unstable.

35. My neighbors are very noisy.

36. The house I live in is lovely, but I can't wait to get back on campus. Next year will be much easier.

37. My favorite foods when I was a kid were chicken and dumplings soup and white cheddar shells.

38. I was not a thin kid.

39. I like the idea of living somewhere tropical, maybe near the beach. Mosquito nets, screened-in porches, wooden chimes, greenery everywhere outside... It always sounded perfect.

40. I have a lot more composure than I used to. Even though I still talk at the speed of light if you get me angry enough.

1. I love knowing how to cook. There’s a certain gratification that comes with being able to mix up some cookies or a good sauce without consulting a recipe.

2. Also, I love cute couples. It’s different if it’s all about emotional photos or kissing wherever… what I’m talking about, here, are couples who just glow with happiness, even when they’re just walking down the street together. They give me a lot of hope.

3. I’m big on equality.

4. But I’m also still learning.

5. My favorite musical artists are Dead Man’s Bones, Bon Iver, and The Black Keys.

6. I love snail mail. There’s nothing quite as awesome as sending someone a package.

7. Much like cats with people who have allergies, children naturally gravitate towards me so strongly that I'm afraid they're going to start to maintain orbit. NO, NO PIGGYBACK RIDES okay maybe one

8. I own an obscene amount of bathing suits, partially due to the fact that I haven’t grown since fifth grade, and partially due to the fact that I love the beach and have to have several just so my other ones can have time to soak and dry.

9. I’ve been contemplating writing my own student cookbook, since I have yet to find one that is both healthy, easy, and cheap…and all of my personal recipes are healthy, easy, and cheap.

10. I love wearing other schools’ t-shirts.

11. I’m more afraid of ending up with the wrong person than I am of being alone.

12. I apologize to and thank all the things I dissect in Biology lab.

13. But I still shake when making the incisions.

14. I like the idea of having nieces and nephews sleep over, when I own my own home and whatnot, but the prospect of having children of my own has never interested me.

15. People give me a hard time about that, claiming that I’m too young to understand wanting children. No, you’re too closed-minded to understand emphatically not wanting children. There’s a difference. Some people are not like you.

16. Sometimes I feel really hopeless when I sit on my perch, on campus, and listen to the conversations of people passing below.

17. I like McDonald’s.

18. I hate people who shame people who like McDonald’s. Making others feel sucky about their choices doesn’t make you look any less like something that would come out of a horse’s butt, so cheers.

19. I used the phrase “sweating my balls off” in conversation, last night, and now I’m thinking that may have been a date. This realization sent me into raucous laughter.

20. People pay for my dinner a lot without it being a date, though, so I can never tell. In related news, I’m not really sure why my friends all decide to pay for my meals. I love them and owe them.

So I postponed my trip to California till May. My aunt basically told me that this was a good thing, because I'm turning 21 in April, so the timing would be spectacular.

So I guess my aunt wants me to go drinking with her.

Which is kind of what I always hoped to see in my experiences with my family. Being a kid and witnessing all the weird pranks they'd pull on each other was cool, but I'd like even more to kind of be in that club...which you don't really get to do until around age nineteen, when they start seeing you as someone who's experienced something worth talking about. All they used to have to talk about with me was the list of my accomplishments, and how much can you really say about an academic achievement award...? I mean, sixteen-year-olds rarely study up on their politics, and even if they do, they even more rarely feel personally impacted by the country's decisions. Now that I'm paying for shit the government wants and having my rights restricted, I'm feeling a little more passionate, here.

Sitting at the kid table always sucks.

I think completing that 100 facts challenge a second time should be how we all complete our last five days. Twenty facts a day.

food and food and friendship
Friday. 2.22.13 4:47 pm

So, I bought three blocks of cheese in late January, cut them all up, and stored the cheese slices in tupperware containers with other little snacks.

THIS IS THE BEST IDEA I'VE EVER HAD. I actually eat less cheese when it's pre-sliced, so I have a SHIT TON of cheese left over for next month (I buy groceries roughly once a month), so less groceries to buy! Weird useless thought. Cheese is one of the few things I buy for myself even though it isn't necessarily a healthy choice. I cut out chips, most sweets, soft drinks, most juices...now it's grapes and cheese. And water. Sometimes milk and cookies.

Tonight is my night out with Roysean. We're going to grab some dinner and I'm going to ask all about his internship, because he isn't returning this summer due to a more promising internship on his actual career path. I'm bummed out because he's really great to work with, but it's cool that he made that decision, and that he's really taking charge of his life. Dinner will be good. I always like listening to him talk about politics and history, even though I'm not typically thrilled about history. He knows a lot about (and brings up independently) oppression and perpetual circumstances, so I always like to listen and ask questions. If I could, I would definitely take a few classes, just to gain some sort of footing?

Time to go!
