Oh boy, it’s
Monday Tuesday. Luckily, I swapped my schedule around for work due to classes, so working at home on Mondays make it easier to deal with. But then again, I suppose it’s all in our minds anyway.
Clearly I sat down on Monday morning with the intention to blog. Obviously I got sidetracked. I am not even sure by what, I just know it happened. Yesterday was a pretty busy and productive day for me. I had a phone interview with Tim Kasher (of Cursive) and I think I was sweating the entire time. Thank goodness it was not in person, or I might have passed out. Today, I had the opportunity to interview Trent Dabbs of Sugar and the Hi Lows and it was awesome. He was a great conversationalist, which made for an easy interview. I love when that happens. So often these musicians are either cranky or sleepy because they’re on tour (which I don’t fault them for but it’s part of your job!) or they’ve probably been doing press all day long and answering the same questions so it’s hard to engage them. I guess it’s just a matter of doing research, and not boring them with the usual questions. All in all it’s a pretty interesting experience, and I’m so not complaining. I’ve been so lucky over the past years that I’ve been able to interview some of my favorite musicians and icons.
Anyway! Enough ranting!
The Pumpkin Spice Latte is back at Starbucks. Did I already mention this in my last post? Anyway, of course I’m obsessed with them and all I want to do is indulge in having one daily. But of course I cannot. Well, I can but then I’d be broke all the time. I was doing really good in the month of August about avoiding Starbucks, but that damn PSL brings me back. Sigh. I need to learn how to make some coffee at home. No, wait. I do not! That’s the last thing I need. An addiction to caffeine. That’s the funny thing about going to Starbucks — for me at least — I don’t “need” it. I mean, nobody needs coffee, but I just mean, it doesn’t wake me up. At all. So, it’s easy for me to quit. I just love the taste so much of the PSL and Gingerbread Latte. Baby Jesus take the wheel in December when the GBL is back because I do not know how I’m going to avoid that. I need a second job for my Fall/Winter Starbucks addictions.
On the topic of addictions, my copy of Rookie Mag’s Yearbook One arrived today. I couldn’t be more excited. Is that weird? I’m 29, and I am so obsessed with Rookie Mag. I don’t know what it is. Well, I do. They’re putting out interesting and original content. I mean sure, it’s “supposed” to be geared towards teenagers, but I kinda feel like I’m still a teenager. I’m not sure if that’s pathetic or what considering I’m almost 30, but I guess I just don’t care. I’m not really concerned with society’s notions of what I should be doing at certain points in my life. So, I’m almost 30 and without kids or a husband. What’s the big deal? And so I love candy colored hair, and Lisa Frank, and Young Adult fiction….what’s the problem? I rather be a teenager at heart filled with happiness than a cranky “adult” any day of the year.
I don’t even know what I’m writing about anymore. I’ll put together a more concrete post for tomorrow. At least I hope to do so. I need someone to yell at me in the morning to get my blog posts done. I’m such an asshole. Sorry!
Oh yeah, and that photo above in my grey and black sweater. I’m currently living in it and have zero plans of taking it off. I’m so over being “fashionable”.
Have a good week everyone! One day, I’ll be a better blogger.
