Confessions | One To Nothin'


I feel off in a lot of ways lately, but I've almost found comfort in not knowing what the hell I'm doing.

This doesn't make me want to stab people less when they ask me if I've heard back from any jobs or if I've found a place to live. If you knew me at all, you'd know that if any of those things had happened it would be very obvious. If not by my happy dances or ecstatic shrieking, then by my social media/blog from which I hide nothing (when it comes to exciting life changes anyway).

My roommate moved the majority of her stuff (which is everything because I contributed nothing--roommate of the year award goes to me!) out last weekend so I've been eating everything off of paper towels and mason jars.

She may have taken the plates, but she left me a wine opener so I guess she's learned a thing or two about me in the past 12 months.

Speaking of, I can justify spending $5 on a piece of toast at a trendy cafe, but I just can't bring myself to spend more than $6 on a bottle of wine. Or fork out the dough to buy one place setting for that matter.

Since I started PMSing a week early, this makes week two of telling myself it's acceptable to eat Skittles for lunch.

I accidentally left dim sum in the back of my car Sunday and let it bake in 80 degree heat until yesterday when I realized the stench was not coming from the usual suspects.

Between scrambling to find a working printer, not being able to find parking before jumping on the train, discovering disgusting leftover dim sum and shamelessly changing into proper attire in my car, I arrived at my interview with about 5 minutes to spare and forgot to change into inconspicuous undergarments. If I don't get the job, I'm fully blaming the awkward butt patterns showing through my dress.

After getting into a car accident by letting a stranger drive me approximately half a mile the other day, you'd think I would've learned my lesson about stranger danger but it seems as though I'm going camping with a bunch of them this weekend. Don't worry, I'll leave strands of hair and spit along the way so they can trace my DNA later.

What are your confessions? Go link up with Kathy.


  1. I remember the first time I moved out I had to eat off of paper towels for a week until I was able to convince myself to buy a set of plates. Also, at least mason jars are cute and she left you the wine opener!
    Hope you have an amazing time camping :)

  2. Nice. I have weird budgeting logic sometimes too. Like not wanting to splurge on dollar general coffee but I'll spend 2.50 for one cup at a cafe. But then get free coffee at Publix the next day. Balance? I also like not knowing what the heck is going on too. I left a full-time job with benefits for a job I wasn't even sure if it would continue passed summer. Luckily it's working out. Haha good luck with your search!

  3. Agh, good luck camping with that pretty face / underwear lined ass of yours <3

  4. I'm in the midst of a job search and get annoyed when people from back home ask if I have found a job yet. Don't they know that I would broadcast that info the minute I get a job offer? Good luck with your search.

  5. I do the same thing with cringing about spending on some things but then blowing my money on others. WHyyyyy!

  6. I can always justify some things but others (mostly stuff for myself) I refuse to spend money on....ugh it is SO DIFFICULT. Also I can sympathize with the dim sum. My dad spilled a GALLON of soy sauce in my car and it took a year to get rid of the smell....

  7. It's kinda like how we can spend hundreds of dollars on iPhones but I don't know a single person who doesn't balk at the idea of paying $.99 for an app. Fingers crossed about your interview!

    1. That is such a good point! I've never thought of that... I always complain about paying for apps haha.

  8. I'm the roommate who is moving all my stuff out in a few weeks, but my roommate moved in over a year after me, so it's going to be exciting to see what she replaces all my stuff with. I'll still be living with them for another 2 months, so it's gonna be like Christmas!

  9. Good luck on that interview! I personally consider skittles a food group, so they totally work as a lunch substitute

  10. As long as you have the wine opener, you can handle the rest ;)
