It is monday and I do not know how I survived but I did. The last 12 hours (give or take) have been a blur where the world was merely but a space in which I whizzed by in a blur.
My feet hurt, my soul hurts, I seriously need a lot of chocolate chips to remedy this. I leave you with some of life’s essential questions:
1) How on EARTH does one person (i.e. me) manage to generate such vast quantities of dishes from one measly meal?!
2) What does one do with a box filled with more oranges than a human being could possibly eat in a week (how long I predict them lasting before they get squishy and disgusting)
3) Was pilates originally invented as a form of medieval torture?
It appears I have a problem: I am apparently incapable of what some might call ‘taking it easy’
Despite the entire purpose of flying back over the Atlantic two months early basically being to recover from the immense stress I have put on myself for the past 6 months or so the moment I stepped off the plane I found myself creating to-do lists in my head.
It probably doesnt help that I came back during one of the busiest weeks of the year aparently–in between cruising campus looking for my homies, there is an insane amount of parties and events.
That being said, I have had the epitome of a perfect week. I have been in a constant stream gloriousness surrounded by the people I love and spoiled by the beautiful weather.
Seeing as I have barely had time to breathe, much less bliggity blog it UP for ya’ll i’ll go ahead and give you the cliffs notes version. Because let’s be real, who reads the actual books anymore (English majors aside haha we are nerds).
The past week in a nutshell
I visited all the essential favorites–Barnes and Noble, Buffalo Exchange, Whole Foods salad bar, Trader Joe’s..and Walmart hahah
I acquired a fancy shmancy new phone that I suspect has a higher IQ than me
I attended the plethora of parties that have occurred, had coffee and conversations, and had picnics!
I relaxed at home and caught up on my 30 rock, had lunch with dad, got my nails done with my mom, and taken part in Halloween traditions.
I haven’t had time to even contemplate that to-do list, the top of which is cleaning my room at my mom’s..
Oh yeah, I did this too.
You know those days that fly by with activity and at the end you are too tired to eat, much less upload pictures and/or attempt to cyber re-create your life for your family and friends to read about?
Welcome to my week.
It has been exhausting, it has been humid, and it is already Thursday evening! I rang in my one week anniversary with D.C. yesterday with a hectic morning following a disastrously stressful Tuesday. All’s well that ends well I suppose, but I’m slightly balder from frantically pulling my hair out.
Basically, my identity got stolen and my credit card cancelled on the eve that my visa application was due. SO I had to wake up Wednesday morning bright and early and trek to the State Department, beg to be let in and get money transferred to me until my lovely mother can bring me my new card.
After that I had to walk to Georgetown to the Swedish Embassy to turn in my visa application and then book it down to work to make it just in time two hours late to my Capitol Tour Guide training.
Not to mention that all of this was happening while D.C. was plunged in the midst of a 118 heat index sweltering summer day. At least it was causal week because it is Congressional Recess. Needless to say yesterday afternoon upon arriving back at my dorm I immediately scarfed soup and bread and settled in for some serious Weeds watch-age.
Today was pleasant–though tiring. Minus getting lost a bit on the walk back to work. I have decided to walk the three miles back to my dorm each evening that it is tolerable instead of taking the Metro to save money, get some exercise, and see the city! Today though I picked an unforchanate path and ended up walking straight to WAY OUT OF THE WAY of my dorm.
I stumbled upon some “must see monuments” along the way that I have somehow managed to not see yet despite all my walking adventures and was sufficiently unimpressed.
Call me un-american if you wish but the reflective pools look a hell of a lot better on tv than in person. Check out that water–GROSS!
Looks good in pictures though, I’ll give it that.

while all of you crazy people were celebrating cinco de mayo in the proper way, i was a busy busy girl!
here’s what you would find if you looked up ‘busy as fuck’ in the dictionary
BUT i made it through by five thirty or so, with enough time to squeeze in the gym before our barbeque! It was veddddy enjoyable, highly recommend it ;) Excessive youtube video watching went on for longer than i’d like to admit, but there is some funny stuff out there.
seriously, laughing relieved all the stress of the day. BUT now I am essentially done with my freshman year of college, YIKES. no idea what i want to do with my day, at eight there is the c-men banquet so i’m having a snack now to get me through till 8 but who knows aside from that. hope you all have a wonderful evening!
