a stream of consciousness

Coffee is a wonderful thing. I have mixed feelings about the fact that it's snowing outside. Article deadlines make me stressed out. I can't get enough of the thrilling adrenalin that I get from my new writing schedule. My hair looks better on the second day after washing. How have I not made pumpkin oatmeal yet? I need new jeans. I hope people like my gratitude journal as much as I do. I'm tired of commuting in and out of New York. The world really is filled with good. I have yet to see the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center. I don't know if I want to. Why am I the Grinch this year? Now is a brilliant time to start dating. I find it flattering that guys are interested in me, but I wish I didn't care so much. I can hardly wait for K to visit me for New Years. Someone should figure out what we're doing. No matter how many times I use Western Union I still feel like it's illegal. Hopefully I can make it out of the country in 2011. I should stop by City Bakery for hot chocolate today. If only C could join me. I have to text her. I also have to text/call about a dozen other friends. Sometimes I'm hard to get in touch with and I don't like it. I must send out a batch of snail mail soon. All of my readers and blends should subscribe to Well+Good NYC My mom makes the best soups in the entire world. Why do I take taxis like I can afford it? I'm glad I saw West Side Story yesterday with my grandparents and family. Practicing my Spanish needs to happen more often. This week is going to be a fantastically busy one. I wonder why there weren't any comments on my last post. What would you like to see more of? I don't feel guilty for missing pilates this morning. The Art of Non-Comformity is kind of an amazing book so far. Going out on a Sunday night makes me feel rebellious. That's probably pathetic. Coffee is a wonderful thing. Wouldn't you agree?


  1. coffee *is* a wonderful thing. i wish you lived in the city so you didn't have to have these long trips in and out. sometimes i'm hard to get in touch with too. it happens, and i think we get better about it with practice. sometimes cabs are necessary, and they're worth the extra money. i'm still loving well+good. you should never feel guilty for taking extra rest when you feel like it. i love going out on a sunday night. it makes the weekend feel so much longer. i need a recap of your sunday night "meeting." :)

    thank you for inspiring this brief break from my work day. :)

  2. I love Well + Good! And getting hot chocolate from City Bakery is always a wise decision :) Busy tomorrow? Leslie, Katie, and I are going to see The Upwelling play at the Mercury Lounge!

  3. As I sit reading this (late for work...not good), I am sipping coffee and wishing we could take adventures around nyc in the cold. I know the feeling about feeling as though I'm hard to makes me feel bad but we have lives to live and those who love us most understand. I can't wait for you to take your trip...and to read and see all about it. I'm reading your well+ good article tonight!

  4. Oh I heart you. This was so enjoyable to read.

  5. Coffee IS a wonderful thing. And so are you. Love this. <3 Keep doing what you're doing my love!

  6. leslie: You're very welcome :) talk soon!

    Megan (The Runner's Kitchen): The City Bakery rocks my world, and my bank account. Oh and I so wish I could've gone! Hope you all had a great time.

    claire: Thanks, love! See you soon for sure.

    Crista: Thank you :).

    Sagan: Haha, thanks so much!

    Caitlin: Thank you, dear. I'd say the same about you!

  7. Oooh don't you worry! I subscribed to Well + Good NYC that first (?) time you mentioned it a few posts back! I love it.

    Sorry i'm behind on your posts my love, but i'm sure you were too, dealing with finals madness just a year ago yourself! Time flies, huh?!

    Enjoy these new men in your life, and have fun with it! Don't take it too seriously and just see what happens :)

    Ps, coffee IS a wonderful thing! Starbucks soy lattes in particular...i'll be having one as my little motivator for studying today! xoxoxo

  8. If you couldn't tell..that last one's from meeee, Jessica/jesslikesithot :) hahaha!!!

  9. Jessica: Thank you for the clarification, haha. Don't worry about just catching up now, sweetheart, it is certainly a crazy, busy time of the year! Thanks for the perspective and I hope you're able to do the same. Maybe including the men part? Ha. I know you're in a big transitional phase too is what I mean. Good luck studying!

  10. yes, i do completely agree. i also agree that i love this post and your stream of consciousness. lots of good things going on in your head :)
