1. Cake day at work coinciding with PMS. It was eat a piece of cake or cry under my desk. Providential timing at its finest.
1b. Also, those emails from the library that my books are ready to be picked up. There is no greater joy, people. But apparently not all agree, as evidenced by this conversation:
Coworker: "Any super fun plans tonight?" (he should know better than to ask me that)
Me: "As a matter of fact, yes! I'm going to the library tonight!" *grins wildly, maybe does a dance*
Coworker: "The library?....why?"
Me: "Because they have books? And I spend half my life reading?"
He later told me "I'm sure you were still cool and all in college, but I think we had...very different lifestyles."
2. Watching the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice. It gets better every time. Mr. Collins gets ickier every time. And I still think Jane was horribly cast.
3. This snap from Kelsey.
4. Another Avett concert planned, but is anyone surprised at this point?
5. A new desk at work. LEMME EXPLAIN, IT'S IMPORTANT. Last summer we got to move to any desk we wanted, as long as someone with seniority didn't call dibs first. All the good desks were taken, so I stayed in mine. Which is in a HORRIBLE spot right outside two offices of people who can see everything I do, and it's in a high traffic area, so people are constantly walking behind me, which is super distracting and unnerving as I was always being watched, but I didn't know who was watching. Twas not ideal. There was a certain desk I've had my eye on for the past year, but someone snatched it up. BUT THEN, she quit last week (which was also great because she was mean), the desk opened up, and I got it. But you haven't heard the best part! IT HAS ITS OWN WINDOW. I have a window! I can finally see the weather! And the trees, and, well, the parking lot, but it's still the outside world. A WINDOW CUBE. I'M MOVING UP IN LIFE. I had zero window views from my last location and it nearly killed me. I've only sat at that desk for about 5 minutes so far, but I can already tell I am a brand new woman, and it's all because of the window.
WATCH OUT WORLD, I HAVE A NEW LEASE ON LIFE.
(Is this what adulthood is? Flipping your lid over a window? Help.)
