How Many Times Does it Take to Get it Right?"--Rachel Berry

03 September 2013

Thursday was a mess! I felt like no matter what, I could not get it right. From work to being home with Mr. Collier, it was a disaster! Do you ever have one of those days?

Here's a breakdown of my breakdown. Rachel Berry style. 

1. I have been trying to not spend money and trying to eat healthy. I bought a huge cookie and spent my last $1.75 bringing my bank account balance for the month of August to $0.00. FAIL.

2.  I got permission to write my dissertation from my committee on Tuesday, a job offer on Wednesday and a currently dissatisfied boss today with my plans to graduate. Hooray! 

3. Mr. Collier usually picks me up after BarreAmped which is scheduled to end at 7:30 p.m. but one of the instructors has been running habitually late. I hate having Mr. Collier sit in the parking lot and I lose focus in class when we run late because I'm thinking about him wasting time sitting outside. Double-edged sword, right? Well, we ended on time. I texted, then put my phone in my bag, and then stood around chatting for an extra 20 minutes. 8 texts later with a final threat of being left at the gym, I got an earful in the car about selfishness. BAHH!

4. We made it home to discover when I got ice out of the freezer for my water to-go in the morning, the freezer door remained ajar. Our stockpile was thawed. Grrrreatt!!! 

5. I wanted to make cookies to make smooth things over with Mr. Collier and the only peanuts we had to turn into peanut butter were shelled peanuts. That's right. I peeled an entire bag of shelled peanuts for almost 45 minutes to get a 1/3 cup of natural peanut butter. And my cuticles still haven't forgiven me. Ouch!


  1. I think unfortunately, we all had days like that. Where it just seems that things are going wrong ALL DAY. But, the nice thing is, you get a pretty sweet "reset" button when you wake up the next morning. Some things may linger, but you can have a better day! :)

  2. Firstly, I LOVE your new blog look!!! Love the colors!! Secondly, cheer up buttercup! I the fact that when it rains, it pours, but you're a tough girl, I know you'll get through it!

  3. I hate to laugh, but sometimes you need to! Just imagine this were me and you were reading my blog. You'd hate the fact that I was having a horrible day but you'd giggle at how ironic it all was. Hoping for a better week for you! And LOVE the new design! Who did it?!?!

  4. I totally understand when something doesnt go your way. Its like if one thing can go wrong everything can and its just when you wanna say screw it and just give up. But you can't. and like the above said. Laugh. You can make any situation funny.

  5. I love your "rachel berry" style deal, it cracked me up! Pretty much, I want to write one of these posts right now, I am failing in life at a lot of things as well... but at least we're succeeding at others... right?!

  6. Can we just overlook the things that won't matter in a month....YOU ARE GRADUATING AND A JOB OFFER!!!?!?! You rock. Clearly I am in la la land and we need to go to dinner or AT LEAST have coffee. I am a terrible friend, but oh so happy for you.
