2015, so where’s my hoverboard?

i haven’t logged into my blog in at least three weeks.

first, feliz navidad.

happy new year. 2015 has started off for me just beautifully with sleeping until 11, an intense hangover, and ended with mass amounts of greasy food and a nice dinner with family. oh, and some simply terrible weather

second, i lied about not logging in. i did the other day and wrote this ripping blog about how much the holidays suck. obv, i didn’t post it, but i didn’t for a few reasons. it wasn’t productive; it was freaking rude; i realized how pathetic i sounded. like woe is me, i didn’t get my way, first world problems bullshit. it took me three drafts until i was able to word it in a way that didn’t make me sound like a total ahole. i canned it a day later. i am so grateful for the time i’ve gotten to spend with my fam, practically cartwheeled  out of my office for my week of vacation, and have eaten SO MUCH DELISH FOOD that i’ve picked up heavy breathing and my pants fit a liiiiitle snug. what the hell should i be complaining about? nothing.

so. in my realization that i sounded like a negative nancy, i started thinking about my resolutions for this year. i tend to shy away from making any “goals” because i find them cliched and the majority of the time, resolutions are forgotten by feb 1. i dont like the whole “new year, new me” because we shouldn’t wait for a new year to work on things we aren’t/weren’t happy with during the previous…plus, every year should start out as “THIS year will be the BEST year.” because a little positivity wouldn’t hurt anyone.

my cousin told me that she makes two resolutions. one that is totally obtainable like flossing her teeth daily (she succeeded), and the second is a little more unrealistic to achieve in a year but something she can still work toward. i liked that idea. so i did what any girl does when another girl presents an idea. i stole it.

so i decided to work on feeling a little more settled. my lack of blogging after craving for a creative outlet, lack of working out, and lack of health in general made me realize how out of control of myself i became. also, i legitimately moved toward the end of the year, and in with my boyfriend for the first time since we’ve been together and that completely shifted both of our worlds. i decided to become vegan, and then felt more comfortable with vegetarianism. i’ve really struggled with a balance of my life choices. so naturally, finding some point of settling down is my “unobtainable” resolution.

the obtainable one? losing this spare tire around my waist i’ve grown over the past month and rekindling my love for the gym. and breathing like a normal person again and not like i’ve just run a marathon from just walking upstairs to my apartment.

here’s to the new year, cheerz!

nightly wine. not to be confused with whine.

it’s friday night and i have a totally empty apartment. seriously. this does not happen. all bets are off tonight. i’m drinking wine from the bottle, and eating pasta. and by eating, i mean scarfing down my (second) heaping bowl of pasta. i’m also decorating. woooo party animal!

so tonight, i was walking into CVS to buy some red wine (winning, i know. #dontjudge) and this man turns around and practically yells at me “you’re dangerous!” i stopped dead in my tracks. i am not good with this type of thing. i am the most awkward creature on the planet when people approach me, talk to me, anything really. ha.  not to mention, i was soaked. it is still raining in san diego, and i happened to be walking out of a target when the downpour started, awesome. he continues with “a redhead with striking eyes, and beautiful hair!” still yelling at me, sir. “just gorgeous, just perfect. dangerous!” finally, i found my words and said thank you and practically ran the opposite way. oh, and the cashier told me after that his wife was standing at the checkout while he was yelling at me. great.
why am i so awkward?
so, yelling mystery man, thank you for yelling your compliment AT me, with your wife paying for your whatevers, and while i tried to covertly run into a CVS on my raging friday night for some seriously delish $7.19 wine. i just want to drink all the wine. all the time.

anyway. i got slapped with a dose of reality tonight. i decided to go christmas shopping tonight in hopes of finishing it by christmas this year (hence the wine craving) but cut it short because i was just so stoked to get home knowing it was empty and knowing i could watch my crap reality tv — aka real housewives of somewhere — with no judgment. don’t get me wrong, i love my lively apartment, noise, sport, etc. but sometimes a girl’s gotta have a little me time.
i pour my wine, heat up another bowl of this junk, wash off my face mask, and sit down to turn on my bad reality tv but subconsciously turn on sportscenter. stare at the tv. stare at the remote. look around thinking someone is playing a joke on me and realize, i turned it on. after all of my daydreaming all day about what episode of real housewives i was going to watch, i turn on ESPN. it’s still on, by the way. and i’m enjoying it.
and now, after finishing this wine, i’m craving for someone to run out of their room and ask me questions on how to spell things, and if there’s a Clippers game on.
if you can’t beat em, join em right? happy holidays lovelies xx
(post about my lively apartment coming soon. post also about fitness/health which this should be about, coming soon. MORE COMING SOON DAMMIT)
