Way Down Hadestown

Way down under the ground…

If you need a song to jam to or dance alone in your room to, Way Down Hadestown is the one.

It’s jazzy, bouncy, and very New Orleans. The whole show is really, but this song is killer.

It got me thinking of other songs that are fun to dance to alone in your room…or at a club if you have a social life….and I realized there aren’t many from musicals even though they are made for dancing.

Maybe I’ll do a list of musical songs that would fit in clubs…and I don’t mean remixed versions…looking at you Defying Gravity.

Random Food Update

I have some sad news…

The Papa Johns close to my house is gone. I can no longer order delivery. If I want their pizza I have to drive to a further away Papa Johns and pick it up.

WHAT’S THE POINT?!

Guess I’m gonna eat less pizza…

And for those of you who hate Papa Johns pizza…whatever! The man may be a moron, but he doesn’t own it anymore.

This has been a random food update.

Fall Clearing

I’m very productive…

When I procrastinate. I have things I need to do before January. So, instead of doing them, I do things I’ve needed to do for…3 years?

My point is I cleaned out my closet. I went through every single piece of clothing and decided what had/needed/should’ve gone.

And let me tell you, I did some real damage. I’m pretty sure I got rid of almost 75 pieces of clothing. Some things I’ve had since high school…woof.

A lot of things were items that were the wrong size and have ALWAYS been the wrong size. Like I bought them knowing full well they were the wrong size for me, but I thought, “Hey, some day I MIGHT fit into this.”

Oh, young, naive past-me. Deep down you knewin your heart that was never going to happen.

There were also things that were falling apart, but I loved them so much I didn’t want to let them go. But I did. I let them go. With minimal tears.

Anybut, now I need to find something else to procrastinate with…

YOOOOOOO!

I just snapped my thumbnail in half!! Okay the FAKE nail in half, but STILL!

I was moving a chair and it snapped off…it also nearly ripped my real thumbnail off, but luckily it broke before tearing the nail. My thumb still hurts, the inner corner ripped a tiny bit, but not badly.

THE DANGERS OF FAKE NAILS!! At least, the ones that use glue.

Nice Try Brain

My brain is a little trickster…

It wants be to believe that I could just start exercising and love it. Nice try.

I’ve tried to start a regular exercise routine, but every time I can’t keep going. The main reason is I think I’m one of those people who needs someone else to hold me accountable.

I don’t necessarily mean a trainer, but I mean a friend who does it with me. It would make it more fun, too.

Also, the shy, anti-social me wouldn’t be able to go to a gym anyways. I know nobody is watching and judging me…a lot, but my trickster brain would convince me to go and then constantly tell me everyone is staring and laughing at you…welcome to my life.

For those of you saying, “yOu’Re JuSt MaKiNg ExCuSeS!”

…..yeah. And?

I know me and I go through these phases where I want to start working out…but I need the accountability and the best kind that works for me is accountability from my friends.

But my friends are either too busy or too far away.

Anybut….that’s it.

Rabbit Hole

I’m falling, falling, falling….

I haven’t gotten stuck in a YouTube rabbit hole in a while…but know I’m trapped watching hours of videos….about the beauty guru dramas….which I reeeeaaaalllyyyy know nothing about.

But I’m learning a lot about how they make eye shadow pallets and a lot of the terminology.

Also how quickly it can go wrong. I really had no idea how large the community was…

HOWEVER!! I don’t watch any of the beauty gurus actual videos. But I know their names.

P.S- No, I will NOT name them so you folks can’t claim I’m using their names to pull in views….as tempting as that is.

Nail Story

Fair warning…

This is a post about finger nails.

I am not much of a makeup lover. I used to wear it every day. Now I literally only wear it for extremeley special occasions (the last time I wore makeup was my friend’s wedding and that was because I was a bridesmaid).

HOWEVER!! I love painting my nails. I love wearing fake nails. If I wasn’t such a terribly anti-social, shy timid mouse I’d get my nails done at a salon every month. Luckily, for my bank, I don’t (except when my friends want to go get it done, too).

I only spoil myself on 2 things beauty-wise. My hair and my nails.

Anybut, I’m really only bringing this up because I just finished glueing on new nails and I love the feeling of typing on a keyboard with new long nails.

I know they’re not LONG long, but for me (a habitual nail-biter) these are frighteningly long.

Also, I don’t even care how sloppy the glue is…these probably won’t last the week, anyways…I’m not very good at being careful with them.
