I feel really stupid lately about I left things with Beca and I’m having irrational thoughts about apologizing to her and convincing her to move to the east coast what is wrong with me
adventure is just hardship with an inflated sense of self.
so all I did all day was watch ssn 1 oitnb and eat count chocula but by the grace of family my sis landed me the opportunity to work with an INCREDIBLE artist for my first book.
ohhhhh pray I don’t fuck this up wowwowwow
today feels like one of those days where I’ll end up audibly screaming at a highly socially inappropriate time.
UPDATE: I did not scream, but I did rant about cultural appropriation, Hawaiian sovereignty, and white privilege while I explained that its really best that due to scheduling I cannot attend my extended family’s annual luau.
(we’re Jewish.) (I can’t even.) (they’re so lucky I’m not going I would just shit all over their Jew-luau. Jewau?)
just 2 more minutes til the single worst month of my life finally ends, never to return.
August 2k14: I hate you.
if you were my ex I would eternal-sunshine-of-the-spotless-mind you.
if you were an item of clothing I would wear you while I mucked a long-neglected barn, then light you on fire.
oh, August 2k14, I’m gonna finish you like a cheesecake. (but angrier)
I wanna poke you hard on the nose every time you’re just about to fall asleep, repeatedly, so that you never ever rest, all the time forever.
I wanna make you your favorite meal but with a really disgusting ingredient that I will reveal to you, at your embarrassment & regret, weeks later.
goddamnit, August 2k14, just end and never ever come back, ok???
