Hodge Podge Brain Mush

I feel like I just said this, but my brain is seriously not working today. I'm having a real hard time stringing intelligent thoughts together, so in your best interest I've decided to just share a few of the random thoughts flying through my brain today.

1. I really wish the weather would decide to embrace Fall. It's still in the high 70s here and all I want to do is break out my jeans and boots without fear of sweating to death. Plus it'd be nice to not have to shave my legs every day.

2. I really want to lose 10 pounds by Thanksgiving so it's reflected in our Family Christmas card picture. I feel like that's a reasonable goal for about a month and a half, right? The only problem to this is that all I want to do is eat sweets lately. Because I was gone last week I didn't count calories (or really use any good judgement about food) and I'm seriously paying for that lack in self control this week.

3. Someone hire me already! Being unemployed is seriously starting to get annoying. I've started to apply for retail jobs just so that I'm doing something/making money, but even those I'm not getting interviews for. I don't mean to sound like a brat, but I'm pretty sure my bachelor of arts degree qualifies me more than some high school kid.

4. Thank goodness I finally took off my chipped nail polish. When I don't put a top coat on it starts to chip right away, as in the very same day, so my nails were looking pretty shabby for a few days. That's why I refuse to pay money to get my nails done. I'm now rocking grey "slate" nails with a blue/grey glitter party nail. I feel like it's a pretty solid transition into fall combo.

5. I sure wish the book I've been on the list for at the library since August would get to me. There are still 3 people in front of me in line, and I'm seriously getting impatient to read it. But not impatient enough to shell out the money to go buy my own copy. #frugal

6. One day I'm going to wake up and find my hair is Pocahontas long. I seriously have no idea how long it is now. I've been rocking the top knot/ballerina bun/messy bun pretty much every day for the past month. I just seriously can not stand having my hair get in my face, and this is the easiest way to keep it all out of the way. I only take it down to wash my hair, which *confession* I don't do every night.

7. Lorde's new CD is seriously so good. I've been listening to it on repeat because I just can't get enough. I think my favorite song is Ribs.

Hopefully my brain will be back to functionally normally tomorrow. But in the mean time you should go check out Totally Posted Tuesday because I'm sure some of these ladies were actually able to think enough to write real posts.

  1. I am SO with you on the wanting to lose 10 lbs by the holidays, but wanting to eat sweets at the same time. I can't get with it - it is so hard to diet! I am going to start forcing myself to exercise more just to make up for my sweet tooth! And I didn't work for a while when I moved back to MA from NJ, and as soon as it started to get really old, I found a job. So hang in there! I know you'll find something soon!

  2. I'm totally addicted to sweets. Should we do a lose 10 pounds club? Thanks for linking up, lovely! xoxo
