I turn a year older in less than three weeks and because I am not at peace with my position/situation in life, I am legitimately dreading it. I was having a very non-comforting conversation with my boyfriend about this today; I wailed to him (as much as one can wail over the internet)— what am I going to do with my over-the-hill self? He replied with “you’re gonna look back and be embarrassed at your younger self.”
But why can’t I have this wisdom, knowledge, etc and still be, I don’t know, 23?
(It’s okay, Helga, you don’t act your age anyway. Whether that’s a good thing or not is up for discussion. I’m just glad I don’t have to deal with things like adult acne.)
Anyway, instead of getting all sad and nancy (okay, that was terrible) on the internet/this blog/this life, I’ll just put together a list of what I’m currently doing or am into this month. This would probably be an appropriate Things I Love Thursday (TILT) entry but I am TERRIBLE at keeping up with that. Mondays and Tuesdays, I usually put together a list of things that make my little kitten heart go BABUMP BABUMP and then totally forget to write the entry and only remember it when it’s already Friday.
I need to work on that.
Back to this list— I’ll even give it a pretentious name, like… “du mois.” Yes, I totally checked Google Translate for that.
Sort of appropriate for how I’ve been feeling about getting older (nevermind that it’s about something else). These lines hit the bullseye: “I’m freaking out that we’re running out of time / But to do what? / Should I stop and think of that? / Is there something I could do to slow it down?”
Drake, Nicki Minaj, Childish Gambino, and
Britney Godney Spears.
Currently into Game of Thrones while I wait (a very long wait— January 2012!) for the second season of Being Human US. I am liking GoT so far but I need to pick up the books.
I started reading Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series last Sunday. I’m not sure if I like it. I think Clary and Jace are stupid names.
Headbands! My hair is a mess right now: roots are showing and the color, dull. Until I have figured out what I want to do with it, I’m donning headbands because plain old ponytails are boring.
Making twitchy gifs of myself. I’ve been on Tumblr for far too long.
Other things I am currently into: lavender (the color), bacon, tofu (been on major tofu kick since April), dubstep, and young adult novels.
