I might have an emotional dependency to coffee. Haiku:

Elixir, so brown
I kiss you and consume you
Happy til you're gone.

Oh, hello!

This week flew by. Holy bananas. I love when they do that! After work today I'm heading down to southern Illinois with my mama to hang out with the fam for the weekend. I'm going to meet my cousin's new baby which is pretty exciting. I love babies when you can return them to their owners as needed ;)

I discovered a dive-y mexican restaurant by my apartment yesterday, and picked up some foods for dinner. Guess what? It was delicious. It's safe to assume that I will be a regular there. I'm looking forward to (hopefully) finding more places like this.

I have fallen off the vegan/vegetarian wagon SO SO SO HARD the last few weeks. I tend to have this "all or nothing" attitude about some things, and once I messed up I just went all out. And the silly thing is that I feel so much healthier and better when I don't eat meat, so it doesn't even make sense to start eating it again. I noticed myself looking healthier, and having more energy - even sleeping better, when I cut out animal products. I must do it again!

Sidebar: I can't express how much anger I have for the people who are writing blogs/posting things like this. Ignorance is rampant, and everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but I struggle to sympathize with these kinds of people. Victim mentality isn't flattering on anybody. Someone I am friends with on Facebook is constantly posting these types of ignorant blogs/articles, and it makes me sick. When I think about getting involved in a stupid Facebook discussion with him, this silly (but appropriate) saying goes through my head: Don't wrestle with a pig, because you'll both get dirty - but the pig will like it.

Haha I don't use that saying nearly enough.

over the weekend...

we moved in :) Yes, that's right ladies and gents I am now a resident of Chicago. I have keys, I have an address, and the cable/internet is in my name. Damn, I am a grown ass woman! Haha, that's what I'd like you to believe anyway. Maybe once you see my riding to the bus stop on my razor scooter you'll change your mind.

Moving is such a massive pain in the ass - I do not want to do it again any time soon. Packing is just the tip of the iceberg. And even though I've moved A LOT in my life, none of those moves are really comparable to the time you move out of your parent's house for good.

I can't wait til we are settled into the apartment for good, so we can finally just...breathe and hang out, haha. Molly is really good at decorating which is nice. And it's been fun to go through all of our things to make a very complete kitchen. Ahhh I wish I could just take this whole week off work to hang out at my new home :) But on the other hand I suppose it's keeping me sane to get out of that mess for a while.

I think I got a bit spoiled, as far as work commutes go, when I was staying at Amanda's old apartment. Getting to work was super quick and easy (about 20-30 mins and the bus would drop me off right in front of my building!). So this morning on my first commute to work from Andersonville I was kinda bummed. But then I remembered it was better than coming from the burbs, so that cheered me up ;) I decided to make a map, because I like doing weird things like that to demonstrate my travels to you:

Okay, I'm a nerd. I need to use my powers for good now. Later taters!
