I Miss You

Sooooo, I am a bad blogger. Maybe writing this will have me embarrassed so I come back later to write more!

Hot Like Fire

I had a meltdown at work today. Literally.

About an hour and a half into my shift, I was helping a line of people in a row when all of a sudden I realized how warm I was. I had already put my hair back to try to cool off, but when I realized I was sweating on my forehead, I knew it was bad. Standing next to the computers was just awful.

A lot of times at work, I am warm, but I am very aware that it is not all about me* so I wait until others complain about it being hot and then it is like I am their union representative and I make it my mission to make sure everyone knows it is not a comfortable work environment.

I couldn't take it today, though. It hit me and all of a sudden it was like I was claustrophobic and had to get out of there. I felt like I was suffocating. I raised my voice to a coworker friend and then went in the break room to cool down (in more ways than one). That's when I almost cried. Yes...I almost cried.

I don't like to be hot. My appearance means a lot to me and if I am hot and sweaty, then my hair won't look good. I don't want my eyeliner to run because it's melting. I don't want to have to push up my long sleeves for relief. I want to look nice and feel comfortable. Why is that so much to ask??

Paint Pastel Princess

I am loving this story about Prince William and Kate Middleton. It seems so cheesy to get so into the news about two people I have never met, but for some reason, I am. I think they both seem like such lovely people and I have always liked both of them. Prince William was always a cutie and when he started dating Kate Middleton I just loved to see her in the magazines and online to see what she was wearing.

Happy Alone

I am going to a friend's wedding tonight and while I am so excited, I am also nervous! I feel like it's the first day of school and I don't know who will be in my classes and if I will have friends to talk to. As comfortable as I can be in social situations, my shyness definitely takes over sometimes. I'm terrible with names and it is almost debilitating when I forget them! I only remember one of the new names from the bride's bachelorette party a few weeks ago. That is terrible!

I need to just have an out of body experience and not worry about it. I know I'll have fun. I will have fun. Nothing will be awkward.

I Will Follow You Into The Dark

I wonder why I'm different. Why do I like it to be dark and cold outside? Twitter is blowing up with people complaining about Daylight Savings Time because they don't like to leave work and have it be dark. I was actually just thinking about how I love that! Yesterday I got home at about 5 and my night felt endless- it was great! It was 6pm and I kept feeling like it was 8 or so. What a treat to have the night go on and on.

And the cold? Man, it almost can't be too cold for me. Even though I get cold oh so easily (I am sitting here right now with a scarf and sweatshirt on), I never ever complain about it being too cold. Too cold does not exist in my world.

The sun and I have a love/hate relationship, though. It just makes me miserable in the summer and sometimes in the fall I want it far far away so it cools down, but I do love it when I'm at the beach or pool and yes, it's great to feel its warmth when it's about 20 degrees outside, but usually I can kind of do without it.

I think I'd like to live in Barrow, Alaska for a year to experience the November-January of no sun. I think it would be an interesting experience. And a chilly one!

But you know what's funny? Part of me could totally live on a boat in the tropics for a year, too. Figure that one out.
