Awkward and Awesome Thursday

- Coming home to discover that the ceiling in my bedroom is falling apart and leaking water above my bed. Yeah.
- Running around trying to spruce up my apartment before my landlord comes over to check out the damage in my bedroom. Not fun. Note to self: Learn to clean on a more regular basis.
- My boyfriend playing his online gaming and listening to all the dudes he is playing it with. Wow, they take it a bit too serious and sound totally strange. He's in a guild. Need I say more? Oh, dear.
- My outfit photos A) taking place in my messy kitchen and B) myself looking ever so messy after all of the above and it being after 11pm. Truth in outfitting... I swear this looked less sloppy this morning! (P.S. It was a casual day at work.)

- Today was my Friday. I have a four day weekend to relax and enjoy!
- Getting asked to be part of a new project at work... it is helping with putting a little more pep in my step at work.
- The prospect of thrifting, estate sales, breakfast with my mom and sleeping in this weekend!
- Making jam late tonight with strawberries I picked up for dirt cheap...

Jam Making - Awesome

- My houndstooth kitchen rugs... yes, they are really awesome.
- Did I mention I have a four day weekend!?
- Landlords that fix major issues. Today is the first day in a long time that I am thankful I don't own my own place. Renting isn't always too shabby.
