A few things going on with me lately:

1. I got a temp job at a big software company in town! A really good opportunity for me right now. I start later this week.

2. This really pissed me off, and I thought I would share. Did you know a sexual assault charge isn’t as severe if the victim is unconscious? Two guys got away with about 30 days in jail because of this…anyway, check it out if you are interested. It blew my mind.

3. I saw Baths live the other night and loved it.  Usually Anthony takes me to new music stuff and it goes over my head, although I usually enjoy it. I had a blast at this show though- it reminded me of going to emo concerts in high school! Ha. Except there was beer this time. Check him out!

4. I am OBSESSED with the show Scandal. I am unemployed but have a job that I just haven’t started yet, and this has created quite an interesting past week for me- I’ve been doing absolutely nothing. Anthony goes to work to teach kids how to play music and I watch Scandal. I can’t stop. I eventually eat and shower by the time he gets home and I’m ready to socialize, but ya… I have been addicted.

The show is about Washington DC and all the horrible people and things that go on there. But everyone is gorgeous of course, and everyone is ALWAYS at an anxiety level of 6 or above, out of 10. Most of it is screaming, monologues, and shocked expressions in a parking garage at night. It is wonderful.

Always shocked. Always perfectly pretty.

It’s been doing funny things to me. If politics come up among friends I have a second where I feel like I know EXACTLY what’s going on in the White House right now. Once I realize that’s not actually true I just get super cynical about politicians and our government (even more than usual). Yesterday I saw my ex from afar in town and I swear I started hearing a dramatic soundtrack in my head. It’s hilarious. It’s the same thing with a good book- I start having inner monologues if I’m reading a good book that I can’t put down. I hope I’m not the only one this happens to…

I have phases where I will get addicted to shows and watch them back to back on Netflix. This got especially frequent in grad school, where I didn’t have a full time job and didn’t have a boyfriend. No one cared how many hours I spent in front of the TV. There was Fringe, Lost, Gossip Girl, Veronica Mars, Pretty Little Liars (don’t judge me)… I would start having dreams about the characters and would want to bring them up in conversations with my friends. Omigod it was like I was dating the show… hahaha.

I tried to come up with something a little more of substance to write today, but I’m in this funk of being totally lazy. My sister and I will call each other every once and a while and one of us will be like “What’s wrong with me? I haven’t done anything productive in forever. I mean, one or two days is fine. But FOUR DAYS? This is getting out of control.” Then the other person will say, “This happens all the time, and my job is to remind you that you will have a fit of productivity very soon and everything will get done and you don’t have to worry.” “BUT WHAT IF IT DOESN’T HAPPEN??”  “It will! Shut up and keep watching Felicity!”

That’s a rough summary of the conversation. I think I would have called her today if it weren’t for my job starting so soon. It’s kind of a moot point, since I’ll have to be out and about soon anyway.

So I guess I get a free pass this time. Thank you for reading my rant! Do you ever feel completely lazy? For what feels like too long? Like going downstairs to make a sandwich might be just out of the question? Also, I am almost done with the episodes that Netflix has so far. Please give me your favorite guilty pleasure on Netflix so I have something to look forward to!

    You know what I think is pretty awesome about scandal? All the clothes. And all the wine and nobody ever spills on a white gladiator jumpsuit. LOL ;)

      YES. You summed it up lol! I want to dress like Olivia but I wouldn’t be able to not have a bunch of color in my outfits at all times… but she just looks so awesome in white. She must have taken some kind of class on how to not spill wine. Ever.

    The Good Wife! I could watch that for days. Also lots of rants monologues and fists on desks. They need more making out but that’s just my personal preference.

      Ugh I want to watch that so badly but it’s not on Netflix (which is my only way to watch anything right now). So frustrating. I’ve been dying to get on the Good Wife train.

      Right Jac?! I’m done now and I can’t find anything on Netflix that hits the spot like Scandal did. Ugh why is cable so expensive? :)
