It’s Thanksgiving! On the one hand, thank GOODNESS because it’s my favorite holiday (I think) and no one is allowed to interview me for residency on Thanksgiving. On the other hand, it’s Thanksgiving??? Allow me to digress for just a hot second into the whole clichéd I-can’t-believe-it’s-already-almost-December thing. (more…)
One year ago today I became a real life lawyer.
Yup. I found out I passed the Texas Bar Exam on Halloween 2013. Nice of them to make the anniversary so easy to remember, right?
This morning when I woke up it was 56 degrees. Fahrenheit. And I had to snuggle real hard under the blanket and it smelled like fall and a little bit of last night’s rain outside. It made me so very happy and ready for more. (more…)
I don’t mean to brag but…I read a book for fun last week. A whole book. That had nothing to do with school. Cover to cover (first page to last page, as it was on iBooks).
Last weekend, I went to Newport, RI, for a wedding (gorgeous, obvi). Then I unpacked my suitcase within 3 days of returning. Whaaaaaaaat who am I???
I made and went to an optometrist appointment this week. You know, because I haven’t been able to see so good for the past 9 months or so, and I figured it was time to go and get a new contacts prescription.
Here’s a thing that no one tells you about summers in your midtwenties/summers when you’re an actual working adult: they are so busy! I actually spent four weekends away from home at the beginning of this summer. The Accountant hasn’t been home in over five weeks at this point.
What I’m trying to say is that it’s almost August and I don’t really understand how that happened because yesterday it was May I swear.
If you can’t tell, I’m kind of flying by the seat of my pants right now. You know what helps me feel in control and capable?
I’ve realized important two things.
First, I don’t eat enough bagels. From a health standpoint, I’m sure I eat enough bagels. There’s probably not a daily recommended allowance of bagels, although there should be, and it should be 5. When I got home from the hospital Sunday morning, I stood in front of my fridge for far too long, trying to figure out why I didn’t want to eat anything that was inside (aside from the fact that there’s basically just eggs and string cheese in there).

Sometimes you wake up and heat up day old pizza in your cast iron skillet and eat it for breakfast.
Sometimes you just go to Whole Foods and buy apple cider vinegar and a single coco La Croix and a pint of Jeni’s ice cream. And that’s it.
Sometimes you go to Trader Joe’s before work on a Wednesday and buy a single greek yogurt, an apple, chocolate & sea salt almonds, and peonies. Because how do you show up at the office without those things?
Sometimes, you just do the things that you want to do. Because you’re an adult and you can.
