Sunday confessions v6

Sunday, December 9, 2012


1. This confession post can't compare. I've been humbled. Please read Alyx's confessions today and you'll understand why. Perspective, perspective, perspective!

2. I've never been a drinker, so I apologize if you're disappointed in my short summary of birthday shenanigans:
Actual birthday: mom made me dinner, opened presents, mom made me "classic drinks" (gin and tonic, margarita, white Russian) and had cake. Nom nom!
Friday night: celebrated with friends by having a few drinks. No buzz, no drunken shenanigans. Always the best way to go because A. you don't act like a fool and B. you don't feel like a fool in the morning.

3. In reference to that last confession, I've never been drunk and don't plan to ever be so I guess I can't really predict how I'd feel.

4. Getting my big girl driver's license was a wake up call. Comparing it to my college ID photo from 3+ years ago was depressing. I need to get back to healthy Gen-Gen, but I lack motivation and drive. Ugh.

5. I've been a lifeguard for 5 years and have never had to use first aid on a human *knocks on wood*. Friday night I had to use it on my best friend's dog (my dog's brother). Long story short, there was a small dog fight. A friend's rot got too rilled up and big a large hole in the side of my best friend's dog. Dog blood, dog screaming and seeing a dogs insides made for a long night. Some birthday celebration, right?

6. To celebrate my turning 21, my dad took Cam and I to the casino north of us yesterday. HATED IT. We were all dealt miserable hands consistently at the black jack table and all lost very quickly. Bummer. That $85 I lost in a matter of minutes could have been three, maybe four, weeks worth of gas and I thought I was gonna puke when I realized that I literally just lost it all. Needless to say, I'm not much of a gambler.

7. Two take home exams and one final story stand between me and break. No more alarms on my phone, no late night studying and no more obligations until I don't even know when in January. 

8. There are a lot of things that make me appreciate what I have, but lately I've been appreciating the man that stands by my side more and more lately. I sorta spilled my guts in a very sappy, teary "I'm so happy I have you" kinda way. Good thing he loves me even though I'm an emotional basket case every now and then!

9. I think my age is catching up with me. This week I have experienced severe back pain, knee pain and pain in my hands. Back pain has been chronic for me for years, knee pain is from who knows what and this hand pain is from my constant companionship with my computer. Technology is so love/hate.

10. This ended up being a lot longer than I planned it to be...

Heading to church for the first time in a while this morning. That was sort of a confession, but I need it. Enjoy what's left of your weekend friends!

  1. I don't really drink, possibly twice a year or something, but I still manage to have plenty of sober shenanigans...my idea of fun is just different from standing around a bar getting and behaving like a 6 year old, and I am totally OK with that!

    Chronic back pain is no good, I suffered from that but physio and exercise has helped a lot! I also have a standing desk at work which makes a huge difference.

  2. You could not get me to gamble, because I know I would be HORRIBLE at it. (oh and just don't get drunk ever, you aren't missing anything)

    As far as exercise motivation, you can join with Holly and I in our get fit...thing. haha We're both starting to get serious about it, so if you need some encouragement let me know! :)

  3. Happy Belated Birthday!

    The best kind of fun is the sober kind! Cause at least you can remember what happened in the morning AND you still get to be silly. I don't really drink either, so most of my shennanigans have been done dead sober and those have been the best nights!

    1. The other dog wasn't hurt at all, cuz he's much bigger. The little one is doing okay, but it'll be a while before he heals fully. And thank you :)

  6. I'm with ya - no gambling or drinking for me. I'm actually terrified to gamble, because I am SOOO unlucky. Lol if 21 is catching up with you and you've got all those pains, let's hope 30 isn't too hard on you!! Actually, I'm the same way... hip & knee pain always, and now back pain with baby. The human body is awesome, but sometimes I wonder why I didn't get better joints!

    Did the doggy end up all right?

    and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Sorry I'm late. I'm lame.
