#tbt to ten days ago in Palm Springs when @danielglendening asked me to marry him and I said yes! 💓❤️💕
I’m not more attractive as a blonde but I am way less approachable. I’ve had brunette/black hair all of my life and been chatted up aplenty in a variety of social situations, but in the month I’ve been blonde no one has fucked with me. Blondes really do have more fun.

My favorite thing today. Thanks @misscarolynjoy for sending this to me and being the keeper of amazing photos.
This is fabulous.
Bestselling writer Stephen King reading in the middle of a Red Sox baseball game. His team, the Red Sox, were losing, so he made the best of that time. The book he’s reading is Kate Atkinson’s book, When Will There Be Good News?
Reblog everything SK does, ever
The thing is, my boyfriend has been gone for an entire month in Lithuania. I have only cried on video hangout with him once, although I have totally cried by myself way more than that, usually to commercials or youtube videos. For some reason the work Pandora plays the Jeff Buckley version of ‘Hallelujah’ every single day, and that song never fails to make me weep. In the past four weeks I have run 91.2 miles. I spent three days with three of my oldest and best friends, and found I can still make them laugh and I still love them to the deepest depths of my heart. They saw approximately 1/27th of Portland, since we were primarily motivated to hang out with each other and therefore did not do any sightseeing. I showed them that Portland has food and drinks on every street, I did not show them anything at all west of the Willamette.
I made a couple of new friends, which is very challenging for me, so I am proud of that. Someone dear to me moved from Portland to Philadelphia, where she will continue to be more and more amazing. I cooked dinner almost every night, in spite of the single-person’s temptation of takeout/delivery lurking. I read the latest Stephen King book in like three days.I went to 7:15 a.m. yoga twice a week, every week. I did laundry, and threw a ton of laundry on the floor and just left stuff all over the place and didn’t bother to clean it up. I wrote in a journal, an actual journal, and liked that activity immensely. I drank more than I normally do. Way more than I normally do. Pretty sure that is why I feel like maybe I gained four or five pounds because food has not been tasting really that good but wine has been tasting AWESOME.
I went to the movies. I watched a ton of tv, mostly passively, not caring too much about what was on. Almost every day I have gone to work, run, and google video hung-out with my partner- me at 10 or 11 p.m. and he at 8 or 9 a.m. across the world. I have missed him like no other, and I am so happy to see him tomorrow, I don’t know how I will be able to sleep tonight, or concentrate at work. I realized that although I get sick of myself over time, occasionally, I am able to be alone and enjoy my own company. I shouted out the bedroom window at some revelers who were walking past, likely from one bar to the next, as is the usual story, because they were being super loud and I was trying to go to bed and then I regretted it almost immediately but it felt kind of good. I’ve talked on the phone to my sisters and brother, discussed planning our dad’s 70th birthday party. I also went too long without talking to anyone. I bought a couple of white dresses even though my wardrobe is almost exclusively black, because we are going to Palm Springs in August, and it will be Palm Springs in August. I’ve become suddenly and almost inexplicably enraged by practically nothing, only to calm down and realize that I am just pent up and that nothing too terrible is happening.
This is all to say, just to say, that I feel like I did good. I made it (knock wood) through a month that I was dreading, and I didn’t fuck up too much and I don’t think I made anyone hate me and I didn’t fall down or hurt myself and I didn’t get super depressed and I accomplished a couple of goals which was nice. The kitchen table is covered in unopened mail. I have had the same Netflix DVD unwatched for about 5 weeks. I am still a functional human being and I like that.

The waltz wasn’t just a dance. It was a revolution.

Today at work I got somebody’s Out Of Office message that said they were out from 1pm to 4pm, and I’d like to make a personal and professional goal...
