Day 15, Wednesday: A Day in the life (include photos from throughout your typical day – this could be “a photo an hour” if you’d like)
Not sure how the heck anyone would have to time/energy to take a photo an hour on any given day.
So this is when I realized I futzed this up and had to actually start taking photos for my post of the day. In the morning, I check emails at work.
More work happens. Later on, I feast on the free lunch.
More work happens, and then I walk to the train station.
I take in the old Cook County Hospital.
Then I ride the dirty, filthy train home…
… where The Husband grills food for us.
Day 16, Thursday: Something difficult about your “lot in life” and how you’re working to overcome it
The only real lot in life that I have is dealing with an inordinate amount of stupid people on a daily basis. I try to remind myself that people can’t help being as stupid as they are and that I should cut them some slack. Stupid people aren’t ever going to change so I might as well stop expecting them to. You can’t have great expectations for stupid people because they will never even try to meet or exceed them. They’re just living in their own stupid little selfish worlds, and they don’t give a rat’s ass about how much you may or may not be bothered by them. I just take them as they are and try to live my life as best as I can.
Day 13, Monday: Issue a public apology. This can be as funny or as serious or as creative as you want it to be.
I apologize that this blog post prompt is kinda blah. I apologize that I’m too tired to take this seriously.
Day 14, Tuesday: Ten things that make you really happy
1. Baby animals.
2. Office supplies.
3. Finding bars/pubs with hard cider on tap.
4. Books that you just can’t put down.
5. When you try a recipe the first time and it turns out just the way it’s supposed to.
6. Remembering the lyrics to songs that haven’t been popular since the 1990’s.
7. Fun shopping sprees at Target or amazon.com.
8. Getting personal mail.
9. Thai food from my favorite place.
10. Applying makeup without having to utter the words, “Fuck it!”
Day 10, Friday: Most embarrassing moment (s). Spill.
I don’t know, I don’t really embarrass very easily.
There’s this one time The Husband and friends of ours went up to this cabin in Wisconsin we go to every year. I got so drunk and caused such a scene (crying, falling, dramatics… the works) that I vowed to never get drunk ever again. This happened years ago, I can’t even remember when it happened, but I have never gotten that messed up again. Mostly ’cause yes, it was embarrassing, but also hangovers are a bitch in my old age. When they started to last two or three days, I was done. I still get buzzed every once in a while, of course.
Day 11, Saturday: Sell yourself in 10 words or less
Either you like me or you don’t. I don’t need to sell myself.
Day 12, Sunday: What do you miss? (a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life…)
I miss high school. Particularly all the time I had in chorus: going to chorus competitions, going to music festivals in Canada and Austria, spending hours cramped in buses with my chorus buddies. I was one of those weird cases of kids who actually had a really awesome high school experience, which is kinda odd when you consider that I attended a Chicago Public School. I was a big geek for sure, but so were all my friends. Ahh, those were the days. When things were simple and fun.
Day 9, Thursday: A moment in your day (this can be just a photo or both a photo and words)
Coming home to this little one after a day at work always makes me smile.
Day 8, Wednesday: A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.
To people who are planning a wedding: Elope.
To people who are wanting to have children: THINK before you act.
To people who are against marriage equality: Mind your own goddamn business.
To people who litter: The world is not your ash tray, you filthy pig.
To girl in the cashier line in front of me at the grocery store wearing $300 headphones and talking on her iPhone 5 who ordered the poor teenaged cashier to void her $80 transaction (without apologizing), because even though her public assistance (my tax dollars) was paying for $60 worth of those groceries she couldn’t afford the remaining $20: GO GET A JOB YOU USELESS PIECE OF SHIT.
Day 7, Tuesday: The thing(s) you’re most afraid of
Being made a fool.
Losing my loved ones.
Being put on the spot.
Day 6, Monday: If you couldn’t answer with your job, how would you answer the question, ‘what do you do’?
I’d say I’m a friend, a wife, a daughter.
I’d say I like to read and do puzzles and try new recipes.
I’d say I love to make people laugh.
I’d say I like to make fun of people and talk a lot of shit.
I’d say I’m an amateur blogger, amateur crafty lady, amateur singer.
