October Goals

I am super good at making Task Lists.  I have a planner, a notebook, and I tear up scrap pieces of paper at work and write down every little thing I want to do and complete.  Which would be awesome if I followed through 90% of the time, but I'm super great at writing it down, walking away and playing with something else that attracts my attention.

To change this, I've decided to write down some goals for October and (fingers crossed) the pressure of posting it on my blog will force me to actually get them done instead of procrastinating last minute and freaking out.

Happy National Women's Health & Fitness Day!

Start flexin' ladies.  It's National Women's Health & Fitness Day!  So, this day is targeted to older women, but it doesn't mean that us younger ones can't join in and support.

30 Day Relationship Challenge...With Myself: Day 7

When I lived with my grandpa, I used to destroy Newsday's Crossword section.  And by destroy I mean get destroyed by.

Every night, Grandpa would sit in his recliner and flip between The Big Bang Theory or Blue Bloods.  I would sprawl out on the floor with the newspaper and struggle through the crossword.  Every once in awhile, I'd shout to Grandpa for help and he would chuckle and tell me to check my cheating machine (my phone).  It was the best.

Feelings I'm Having About Fall As Told By Stranger Things

It's the first day of fall.  Some people are loving it, but those of us who worship summer (like me) are in deep intense mourning and the fear in my stomach equates to the fear I felt when Steve Harrington showed up to Jonathan Byer's house with a bloodied face in the middle of a Demogorgon trap. 

These are the feelings inside of me I need to express on the death of my favorite season.

Ten Reasons I Moved Back To New York


Ahh, New York. You kicked my ass, my friend.  You stole my purse, my license, and a whole ton of cash.  Yet...

There's something about New York that's always got me gravitating towards her.  Lately, I've been reminiscing about what drew me back to New York after I left in 2011, returned in 2013, and departed once again in 2015.

30 Day Relationship Challenge...With Myself: Day 6

Okay, so there has been some significant slacking.  I blame this on the final week before I took the GRE because I basically abandoned the world and stuffed my face into my GRE workbooks (which I am totally planning on tossing into the flames at a bonfire very, very soon.)

And oh, my MFA classes started.  The same freakin' week.  Woof.

10 TV Shows I Watched Obsessively

This week's Top Ten Tuesday held by The Broke and The Bookish is TV Themed!  I decided to dedicate mine to some shows I obsessed over.

As a disclaimer, by obsessed I mean I've seen every episode.  Repeatedly.  On TV, on Netflix, I even YouTube my favorite moments and giggle silently (or try to) at my work desk.  I'm such a millennial because I'm most happy when I binge these ten beautifully wonderful shows:


The Office
Michael Scott could do no wrong. Nor Jim, nor Pam, nor anybody at Dunder Mifflin.  The writing on this show was magical.  I watched it when it was on and then binged the entire series.  Twice.

How I Met Your Mother
This show broke my heart.  I was a HIMYM fanatic since day one and then they went ahead and wrote that awful finale.  I haven't watched an episode since, but while it was on, I watched reruns nightly and planned my evening around a chance to witness Slapsgiving.

Vanderpump Rules
This show is garbage.  I know that, I accept that, but it doesn't keep me from watching. My dad watches it too.  I'm totally throwing him under the bus.

Girl Meets World
This show is so beautifully written and their ability to tie back to previous episodes is flawless.  It's relatable at any age.  Don't get in my way on Friday night or you'll the wrath of a girl who missed Girl Meets World.

Parks and Recreation
I was such a hater for such a long time. I refused to watch this show when it was on (fearing another repeated HIMYM upset) and waited to binge it on Netflix.  I am so sorry I didn't have some more faith Pawnee.

The Inbetweeners
I watch The Inbetweeners at least once a year.  I'm talking about the original British version, ignore MTV's copycat.  
Melissa & Joey
I binged this show while painting the studio apartment in my grandpa's house.  I'll forever remember almost dropping my soaked in brown paint on the newly installed wood floors.

Psych
There will never be a buddy show like Psych for me.  Or anyone who could deliver lines like James Roday.

Portlandia
I legit watch Portlandia every night to fall asleep.  I've probably watched it thousands of times at this point.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

And Benson and Stabler have been my go-to's since...probably 1999.  If you don't like SVU, then we clearly have nothing in common.

Do you watch any of these?  If so, which ones?!?  Or am I alone in my obsession...?
