If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that oh, hey, I had a head lice scare earlier this week! What? Head lice, which is much more common among children and here I am at 22 being told I had lice…AND I NEVER SPEND TIME WITH CHILDREN! A dermatologist told me this lovely news on Tuesday. On Wednesday morning, before heading to work, my mom and I stopped at this lice specialist (they highly recommended Mom come too because we live together. Dad shaves his head, so no worries there) only for them to tell me there that the dermatologist was sorely confused. I actually don’t have lice. Of course, this is after I paid a good sum of money for a lice treatment product and had to endure my mother freaking out the whole of Tuesday night because of my supposed lice infestation. Well, I made it through childhood without head lice and now, it seems, I’ve made it one step further in adulthood. I don’t have lice. Huzzah! Makes for a good story, though, right?
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that work is fabulous. My body is adjusting to the long hours on my feet so I don’t hurt as much as I used to when I get home. My coworkers are all great, which is an added plus. Basically, I get to make coffee and other delicious drinks all day. I also bake cookies (another task on my work list) when needed. This is my job, people, and I love it! Well, there’s the cleaning up and around the espresso bar, too, which I don’t mind, because I’ve always found cleaning to be a very strangely soothing task. Of course, there are better days as with everything and sometimes it gets crazy and overwhelming when there are a large amount of orders coming in, but I like staying busy so running around really isn’t half bad.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I got my diploma in the mail on Monday–if you hadn’t already heard, that is. It’s old new by now, but still exciting!
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you about how my mom has been preparing all week for her annual girls weekend this weekend. Girls weekend, a.k.a. the one weekend each year where her and her college friends get together, catch up, reminisce about old times, and have a jolly good old time just like the old days. Mom is hosting this year so she’s been busy getting the house in order and making it look like we don’t live in a pigsty. I’d tell you that I
really hope know my own college friends and I will have our own version of girls weekend in the future…though we’ll have to call it something else, since there are a few too many guys in our friend group to be so gender exclusive with our title. Mom’s girls weekend is really a fantastic reminder for me, a recent college graduate, that wherever my college friends and I end up, if we make the time and put in some effort, we won’t ever have to worry about losing touch. For the record, everyone was supposed to be kicked out of the house this weekend so the girls could have it to themselves. The brother is still studying abroad and the father has been banished to California for the time being (to see an old friend of his own). I, too, was supposed to be banished, but alas, I got a job and work weekends. So it’ll be the old college friends and the daughter…though, I really wont be around that much given that I have to work.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that blogging has really been put on the back burner with work and everything else I want to do with my day when I’m not working (i.e. working out, yoga, reading [Jonathan Safran Foer’s Everything is Illuminated is the most entertaining book I’ve read in ages and I haven’t even reached page 50 yet], and desperately trying to get through Gilmore Girls, since it’s already taken me five years and I’m only on season 5). I’m trying my best to stay up with all of YOUR posts, though I really haven’t been inspired to write much of late for the blog. No need to get your undies in a bunch, I’m still here…just not as present as I was when I was a procrastinating college student who was putting off that paper until the very last moment.
If we were having coffee, I’d be ready to finish up my portion of the coffee share…and I’d start to wonder…do you have anything to share over coffee?
