Fly me to the moon

It's the peak of the week. The hump. Hump day.

The end of the week can't come soon enough.

In all honesty, the week has not been too bad. I have been "in the zone" all week. I have been so focused on getting work done. It's crazy. I started to notice that I even have been pulling away from my coworkers. No reason why. I have just been distant. Maybe it's the stress of moving? I have no idea. I just have not wanted to socialize in a while. Maybe, this article (Thank you Mrs. Teacher!)is completely true and I truly am an introvert.

The past three days, I have been so sore! I bet you thought that my Sunday work out was a one-time thing. Well, I actually went to the gym with Colon yesterday. SHOCKING. I feel like it has helped with the stress. I just wish that I wasn't so sore!

Soo... I took my first load of belongings to my new living situation today. I have been packing things here and there and took my first round of things to the house after work today. I hate having my things disorganized and stretched between two different houses. I just want to be settled in and have everything organized. It's just...I know that once this move is complete, I will have to say good bye to this stage of my life. Things are changing... and I don't handle change very well.

One of the things that I am a little afraid of is... being single. That sounds weird... doesn't it? I have mentioned it before  and have tried to ignore it. But then I read a post and felt relieved that I am not the only one.

I know all of my posts the last few weeks/ months have been random and weird. It's just an outward display of how my thoughts have been lately. All over the place.

I guess I will end this post with more random things that I thought were awesome...

It hurts to move...

Gator pride... even if we did lose on Saturday!

A new week has started and I am shocked how short the work day felt. Today was a blur. I was in the zone and got so much work done today. A great way to start the week. So much better than the last work week.

This weekend was uneventful. I had a nice night in on Friday and actually fell asleep super early. The week stress caught up to me and I could not keep myself awake. I know... I'm an old lady!

 Then, on Saturday I got my eyebrows threaded (It was much needed!...believe me) before the Gator game. Guys... the ending to the Gator game was disappointing. I went with a couple of friends to Sandbar to watch the UF vs Alabama game. I was not expecting to win. In all honesty, I wasn't expecting anything great. BUT the Gators were actually keeping up in the first half. I was so happy. 

...then the second half started. At least we weren't shut out!

The rest of the weekend was spent packing my belongings, laying out, working out  and eating tons of food. 

* The non-stop eating is due to a very special friend fulfilling her monthly visit into my life. BOOOOO! The good thing is that I had some yummy Cuban food!

* I made it a priority to lay out on Sunday because I have the most horrible butt tan and I needed to correct that ASAP. It was relaxing and peaceful!

* Packing... yup. I knew the time would come when I had to start packing. I kept trying to put it off because I knew how much stuff I actually have. Welp... This weekend I got a lot done. I still have SO MUCH to pack but at least I started. Man... just thinking about packing all of my stuff stresses me out. 

* Yes. You read the "working out" correctly. I actually accompanied Colon to the gym and he kicked my butt. It's sad because I really did not do much... but I am so sore today. Like... really sore. I can hardly move. 

And now... I am going to pass out. I am exhausted and don't think I can move. 

Night y'all!

"I'm afraid I just blue myself"

Thought that would brighten your day! It's cool, right?

I am so relieved that tomorrow is Friday. This week dragged by and  I am excited for a relaxed weekend. I don't really have a lot planned and am looking forward to catching up on "me" time.

So exciting.

This week at work has been stressful. I feel like I was not my best this week. I wasn't in the zone. I had a hard time focusing and I am sure that it affected my work quality. It sucks and makes me so anxious.

Maybe this weekend (read: days off of work) will help.

Although this week has been rough... There were some some things that made me smile and laugh this week!

* I was able to have lunch at Chipotle with Victor. It really cheered me up and put some pep in my step after a long first half of the day. I always have fun with him and he really is such a great friend.

* I really am liking the new doctor in Doctor Who but I miss David Tennant. I came across an old Buzzfeed post centered around David Tennant and his quirkiness. I could not stop laughing!

* I never ended up watching the "new"(est) season of Arrested Development that was released. I realized this yesterday and decided I would start by re-watching the previous seasons and making my way to the newest one. I am now on episode 12 of season one and am laughing and chuckling the whole way through the show! I decided I should start to make a list of quotes from the show... I'll start with this list and watch it grow.

* I am freaking out about the Florida vs Alabama game this Saturday. After the way that we played last weekend against Kentucky... I am nervous. BUT that doesn't take away the excitement. Another day of Gator football! It helped when I stumbled upon this ?hopeful? article!

* My Instagram posting presence has been scarce lately... but I posted something today and this happened...

This conversation stemmed from my revelation to my friends that a turtle will eat a smaller turtle if placed in the same tank.

Anyways... I'm going to go to sleep! Love you all!

* Worrying about my best friend Chris. He has been under a lot of stress with work, job hunting and moving lately. Things have come together for him and he has found a job back in Tallahassee. I am so happy for him although I know moving back to Florida was not at the top of his list. I just want to make sure he is happy.

* Relieved to have finally talked to my dad last night. It was cut short but he always has a way of making me feel better. Thank you Charisma for reminding me that checking in with loved ones will help to make my life better at the moment! It was much needed!

* Dreading the next few days. My monthly friend is definitely coming in the next few days and I am already feeling the effects of it. Hopefully this one will be short...

* Excited for this rain that AZ is supposed to be expecting the rest of the week. It's the "Florida" in me! I have my umbrellas ready and am anticipating the sound of rain hitting the roof and the ground outside. The only downside: the combination of flash flooding with driving to work!

* Missing Gainesville. Football season and just the college town feel. I miss it a lot. This article doesn't help at all!

* Contemplating sex. Sounds funny. I know. But seriously, I never realized how many different views there were about sex until I had a conversation with friends a week or two ago. I have always been of the mindset where sex was something you do with someone you love and with someone you are in a committed relationship with. I know that there are people who do not agree but it never previously affected me since I was in a long term relationship.

When I had that conversation with my friends, it became obvious that having a "friends with benefits" (cringe) relationship is normal. I was so shocked and felt so stupid. I knew that things like that exist (I'm not stupid) but it never phased me before. Now that I am single, is that what I have to compete with? I mean... there's nothing wrong with people who think that is OK, but I personally can never see myself doing something like that. Am I weird? Is that as common as my friends were making it seem? because if it is... it makes being single daunting and scary.

* With that freak out moment over... I am still contemplating sex. I came across this article and actually enjoyed reading it! Go ahead... read it! I'll even link it again! Tell me what you think!

It's getting late and I am sure you are sick of my random thoughts. I'll let you guys go!

Love you!


Is anyone else excited for this?

Come on... you know you are!

Four days in a row...

Are you shocked? I have posted four days in a row!

I feel like I was JUST celebrating the start of a new weekend.

...and what a great weekend it was. 

Not too eventful. I went straight to the mall to pick up a few things after work. I was a girl on a mission. I knew exactly what I needed and beelined it for the stores that sold the things I needed. After my shopping escapade, I relaxed at home. I ate my left over Kung Pao chicken from Pei Wei, sat down to type a post and had wine ALL NIGHT. 

Come on... You know that looks good!
Finally, I night of great sleep. I didn't wake once and felt so refreshed in the morning. It was much needed.

I started off my day with a refreshing shower and proceeded to get ready for a day full of activities. College football is in full swing and half my day was going to be spent watching the different teams play. A couple of friends invited me to meet up with them at a bar to watch the South Carolina vs Georgia game. SEC football! Oh yeah! The game was delayed by rain and it was nice because it gave the group time to relax and chat.

It was during the chat time that I figured out what I was going to do with my living situation. One of my friends owns a 4 bedroom house and is living alone. HE was kind enough to offer me a great deal to live with him! Cheers to great friends and a new [affordable...non stressful] living situation! I am so glad to get the living situation stress off my mind.

 Although it was fun hanging out with the guys AND watching all the college games, I had to leave before the end of the game to hang out with another friend**.

Said friend** was very sweet and invited me to a Diamondbacks game. It was nice to spend time with a good friend and get to know them. The only down side to going to the Diamondbacks game...

Missing my Gators opening conference game vs Kentucky.

G~O  G~A~T~O~R~S~!
Yes. I wore this during the baseball game.
I HAD to wear a Gator!

I was receiving updates via text throughout the game and I was freaking out. We didn't play that well and the game wasn't as amazing as last weekends game against EMU. But still... we won.

After the game, said friend** took me to Cooperstown  (Yummy!) and we went out to play pool and relax!

Saturday was awesome. I love making new friends and getting to know new people.

I was up and ready to go pretty early despite the fact that I got home pretty late the night before.

I decided to check out my friends house to make sure that I would be comfortable and happy living there. GUYS, the house is gorgeous and I KNOW I will love living there.

The rest of the day was spent laying out working on my tan! My butt... guys... it was bad before. Now the tan is starting to even out! Thank God!

The weekend was fun, eventful, and relaxing all at the same time. It was so hard to wake up this morning and the work day started off rough. I made coffee/hot chocolate mixture and sipped on it on the way to work. When I finally sat at my desk and opened my email, I had a lot of urgent work to address. Such a shock to start the day and it through the rest of my work day flow off.

Now... I am ready to pass out. 

Sooooo.... tired!

**Said friend is very cute and I KIND OF have a tiny crush! Too soon? I think so!
