some days


Some days you have a really bad day at work, and all you can look forward to is getting ice cream from your favorite local shop on the way home. And then on the way home, you find that the ice cream shop is closed because their air conditioning is broken. And then you feel so disappointed that the one thing you were looking forward to can't happen, and then you feel disappointed for feeling disappointed because there are ice cream shop workers who had to close up shop and move all of their product out so it wouldn't melt. And then you go to take blog photos and everyone and their aunt is walking by giving you the stink eye. And then it doesn't even matter because you're not feeling photogenic anyway (and the camera certainly doesn't feel that you are either). And then you go to Walgreens and buy Nestlé Drumsticks because you really need ice cream, and they aren't great, but they'll do. And then you plan to eat them all in one sitting, but feel guilty and don't, and then the last two melt in their packaging.

And then you go to write a blog post and realize you have nothing nice or funny or entertaining or poignant to say because you're feeling bad for yourself and unphotogenic. But you feel like you need to write a post because, even though you don't get paid, it's your job to do so.

Blech. This week is sucky, kittens. I wasn't even going to bother writing a post, but here we are. I know a lot of people think of bloggers as being perfect, and I like to think that people who come across my blog don't think that anyway, but in case you did, here's evidence to support the idea that we, and I, are not.

If you, too, are having a bad week, you're not alone. If you want to vent in the comments, I 1000% support it.


  1. girl! I'm sorry it's not your day, or week! (not that you are like this but) I have a very bad tendency of letting one thing that goes wrong, or one unkind word, wreck my whole day. when I get down, I like to read journal entries from days where I'm like "I'm so happy I can barely write!" I think blog posts would work the same way. I sure hope things turn around for you!!

    thank you for your very sweet words on my last post! I fully intended for you to say clog buddies 4 life, I am wearing mine an unhealthy amount.

  2. Aw, lady, I'm sorry you're having such a crummy week. It's been a rough week on my end as well. I just keep reminding myself that soon it will be the weekend and I will go raspberry picking, and all will be well in the world. I hope things look up for both of us soon!

  3. Okay, this all sucks. Funny how it can be the little things.

    Totally feel you on it not being The Best Week Ever. I read 120 pages of scholarly articles and will do so again today and the next and the next. Somehow to one credit classes at the same time did not seem as stressful in theory as the reality. I mean, it's okay. I'm learning. But, well reading this blog post was my one 10 minute break this morning. Oh well!

    Gotta say though, I think you look photogenic here. You have the prettiest smile and always look full of joy.

  4. Is everyone having a terrible week?! What is going on in the universe? It's been a pretty terrible one for me too. My hubs made me cookies last night and made one in the shape of mickey mouse because he was hoping it would make it better. It was sweet but no dice on the instant fix. Job in limbo, job being ridiculous, almost not getting to register for school (oy I am so over it, but almost done!).

    That does feel a little better. Maybe I'll have ice cream with my cookies tonight.

  5. I adore, adore, adore this outfit. Had you not said anything, no one would have been the wiser about your less than perfect week, because you look like the girl who has it all figured out. And it will be so again. Sending you lots of positive vibes. Maybe you'll get something fun in the mail soon ;)

  6. oof, I'm sorry your week has been so terrible :/ those blah kind of weeks where it just seems like everything is falling apart are THE WORST.

  7. I love that top on you! I've been feeling kind of sucky and depressed lately, so I 100% feel you. My best Blacksburg friends are moving away all of the sudden, and next week I'm finally moving out of Andy and I's place and into a new one of my own, which has all kinds of emotions wrapped up in it. And most of my things are in boxes and all of the little short glasses for having milk to dip cookies in are dirty and I can't be bothered with washing them and there's nothing happening on the dating front at the moment and I haven't been running in two weeks which I feel bad about and I have to buy new tires like immediately and I need to figure out a way to make more money and start thinking about where I want to be in a year and I want to blog more but it's hard to blog when all of your stuff is packed up and I know that this birthday is going to be really lonely.

    I was definitely not going to vent here, but oh well, I did it anyway. Eat a snow cone for me, snuggle with the kitty, treat yourself to a new album and go on a long walk and listen to the whole thing in one go, close your eyes and breathe in some fresh air, put on an upbeat song and dance. We are okay.


  8. Well that sounds shit. Can't say my days been so bad that my ice cream ran out for a while, but it's always a bad day when that happens!. I think Monday was a crappy day for me, work wise, I accidentally grew a fungus in my cell culture, I then dropped Ethanol all over the floor of the lab, then dropped histoclear all down myself and stain my hands in Eosin, then I missed the bin many many times and the worst part is, no one has any clue what I'm talking about... :(

  9. sending some love your way & hoping this weekend is much much much better for you :)

  10. XOXOXOXO - I hope you are having a better week :(
