Meet Paper Passion, the perfume for booklovers. Photo: jezebel.com
As a proud English major and big old nerd, I’ve always had an overly strong affinity for books. Dinner table conversation as a kid? Who needs that! I’ve got Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys to keep me company. So it might go without saying that I am all about this new perfume from Wallpaper* magazine that actually makes you smell like a new book.
I seriously love this. I might actually save some cash for it.
I’m good at taking naps for such long periods of time that I wake up confused as to what day it is.
Happens all. the. time. Seriously
I am good at disappearing into the depths of my apartment for several days at a time.
Hiding out is what I do best
I’ve been watching an excessive amount of gossip girl lately and in the first 2 seasons the couples are very rarely happy. It just makes me a little nostalgic for when I even used to have someone to fight with, or someone that I missed having. Some days I just wish that there was that someone that I cared about to put my arms around, not just a filler but someone who actually meant something to me. Someone that I could feel for strongly enough to associate this song with. *Sigh* That’s the end of my sappy thought for the night.
Dick Clark’s Rockin New Year’s Eve sets expectations that we can never reach. If I were in charge of ABC I would broadcast live from my cousin Timmy’s basement where we ate spinach dip, sipped on Boone’s Farm Wine and played Yahtzee.
Exactly why it’s my least favorite holiday
So I’ve been watching an excessive amount of Greys Anatomy lately to compensate for 1. the fact that I’ve been sick and 2. the fact that I don’t go out and drink anymore. I know…what a productive way to spend my time. But it’s got me thinking a lot lately, and the writing is good enough to relate to real life as crazy as things can get. And some of this might not make sense to people who haven’t seen the show. Here’s what’s in my head right now.
I’ve isolated myself in the woods several times because I’ve been depressed. I told everyone to leave me alone, and I quit at life. These are the times that you find out who is actually there for you. In my life most everyone has just left me alone. They figure, they’re her problems let her deal with them. It turns out that this is nowhere near helpful for me. It is the people I value most in my life that have come out to my woods to get me to come the hell back to real life. Yes, sometimes you need to give people their space, but at some point you have to go kick them in the ass and show them you care and need them back. These people are my people. Lately one of my people…my person…has gone into the woods and I gave her her space. But gosh darnit now it’s time for me to be her person and go and get her. Cause that’s what you’re supposed to do for your friends. You don’t abandon the people that care about you. Ever.
Alright, I haven’t posted in FOREVER (and have no excuse since I can now upload via my iPhone). Now I’m linking to my new blog/website Tidbits of Beauty and Grace. It’s all about the world of beauty. This is one of my many growing interests and I’m hoping to get this one growing and pretty consistent. Don’t worry though, I’ll try to start posting to my tumblr more too because I do love my personal little blurbs :)
