This came into work today. I shortlisted it and displayed it on my cafe counter.

The back said something like “He is into BDSM. (Batman, Dragons, Star Wars, and Magic the Gathering).”

The first paragraph starts like this:

“I growl with frustration at my reflection in the mirror. My hair is fifty shades of messed up. Why is it so kinky and out of control? I need to stop sleeping with it wet. As I brush my long brown hair, the girl in the mirror brown eyes too big for her, stares back at me. Wait… my eyes are blue! It dawns on me that I haven’t been looking in the mirror—I’ve been staring at a poster of Kirsten Stewart for the past five minutes. My own hair is fine.”

my own hair is fine

oh my god where can i buy this


I have read this book and I assure you it is literary gold.

This this this! So irritating.

I think I’m gonna take weekly pictures in the same clothes now so I can see the changes easier.


Shout out to my body for making a human.

To believe in a universe as young as six or seven thousand years old is to extinguish the light from most of the galaxy. Not to mention, the light from all the hundred billion other galaxies in the observable universe.

Today was kind of crazy. I went shopping and all was fine until we were at the check out counter in Victoria’s Secret. I suddenly felt super dizzy. I crouched down for a minute to gather myself. The cashier freaked out and brought me a donut because she thought my sugar was low. I stood up and took a bite of the donut and the next thing I know, I’m being picked up off the floor by my sister. Apparently I fully collapsed, smacked my face off the ground and the donut went flying across the floor. Everyone in the store was staring and unsure of what to do. I finally was able to get up and walk out. After sitting down for a few minutes I felt totally fine again. It was so embarrassing and hilarious at the same time. I really need to figure out why this is happening lately though.

It’s almost two in the morning

And I am craving unsalted walnuts and v8 juice sooooooo bad right now! I can’t even sleep because of it. This is definitely my first real craving. I thought I had already craved things before this but it was never this intense. I now understand how crazy a pregnancy craving can be! 😵

I’m so sad today.

I miss my love. We barely see each other now and I hardly get to talk to him. I always wake up in the morning hoping I’ll get to see him today, and then I just get more and more sad as the day passes. I feel so alone in this pregnancy lately. 😢


the only domestic instinct my parents have managed to pass on to me is the tendency to hoard multiple plastic bags in another plastic bags despite the fact that I will probably never need this many plastic bags in my adult life

Went to the doctor today.

Since I’ve been so dizzy and fainting. They want to do an EKG on me to make sure everything is okay with my heart, and that most likely everything is fine since all my tests so far have come back good. I also got to hear the baby’s heartbeat on the doppler.
I don’t have an ultrasound until August. I can’t wait to see this little munchkin on screen again. 💜
