nice blog. don't worry, living in a small town gets better. i used to live in el guique (outside of espanola), it was gorgeous. does take a bit of getting used to though
Thanks! I think I’ve gotten better at it lately. The big thing now is that I can’t leave my store’s parking lot without nearly getting in a car crash because everyone waves to me in familiar greeting (which is very distracting). Looking forward to seeing your work here on Tumblr. :)
“Only hang around people that are positive and make you feel good. Anybody who doesn’t make you feel good kick them to the curb and the earlier you start in your life the better. The minute anybody makes you feel weird and non included or not supported, you know, either beat it or tell them to beat it.”—Amy Poehler (via stupidhandshakeything)
Making friends is really difficult for me now. Whereas I once reveled in the fact that I was surrounded by a group of 15 friends everyday, I am reviled by the idea of inviting even one person out to do things. I can still handle people— I don’t think I’ve become more introverted, necessarily, I mean, look at where I work— but I just have become more terrified that I am putting myself “out there,” so to speak. And that’s harder when the people I might invite out are people I work with, and would have to see even if I embarrassed myself afterward.
In the last two days, I have seen two people (customers) roll their eyes at me. One, when she thought I wasn’t looking and I was just being a little silly, and the other right in my face. Am I one of those really annoying people who doesn’t know it?!
One of my coworkers and I have been writing on our daily offerings board lately and we’ve been getting complimented on our work. It’s nice to know random strangers think we’ve got talent!
I am a cheese addict, and it is totally killing any semblance of a healthy diet I’ve got. Ughh.
Stephen Hawking is an amazing writer, and I’m really excited to be reading one of his books. When I am working long shifts, it is quite a respite to sit down and be intellectually stimulated. I’ll admit, I really miss academia and using my brain. I can’t wait until this weekend when I will be visiting Taos with Joe and Zack. While they go out and ski, I will drink tea and read books (hopefully by a fire).
I’ve been really excited for snow, and as my weight fluctuates, I’m happy to be able to cover up in plenty of clothing. However, I adore fall and spring— and, dare I say it, I’m looking forward to warmer weather, finally.
This may sound crazy to a bunch of my tumblr followers, as I am older than many of you, but I am kind of wishing I could get pregnant and have a child sometime this year. We’re not in a bad or good place financially, we’ve been married three years now, and I want to start having kids before I’m 30. Kind of a scary idea, or a scary thing to admit.
Speaking of my age, I’m going to be 26 in less than a month! 27 days, I believe! I’ll be in my late 20s. Or at least in the latter half of my 20s. That is a little scary. I usually can find a reason to be excited about an age, but this one is harder… I guess 26 is two times thirteen, my favorite number/birthday. So there’s that.
Can any of the talented gif makers out there please make and share a gif of Sherlock S1.E3 from the beginning when he is sulking on the couch and then gets up and steps over the coffee table? Or, does anyone know where I can find that?
From a 2005 BBC Interview of Benedict Cumberbatch:
"I’ve been very lucky at what’s happened in my career to date, but playing something as far from me as possible is an ambition of mine - anything from a mutated baddy in a comic book action thriller, to a detective. If anything, I’d like Gary Oldman’s career: he’s the perfect example of it. I’ve love to have a really broad sweep of characters - to be able to do something edgy, surprising and unfashionable."
