Awkward and Awesome: Catching Up

It's been a busy couple weeks with a lot of free time (I'll leave you to decipher that one). I thought I'd use my awkward and awesome post to catch up on what's been going on.  Just in case I don't actually get everything posted that I've been meaning to.

- The amount of time I've spent watching West Wing recently. This wouldn't be bad except that I watch with my computer hooked to my TV, so I get absolutely nothing done while it's happening.
- Getting up at 5am. I am not and never have been a morning person. Case closed. Also, I fell asleep at 9:15pm Tuesday. And it still wasn't a full night's sleep.
- I planned to go grocery shopping on Sunday and still haven't made it. Although I'm a little bit proud of myself for successfully creating meals from what I had on hand all week (even if most of them weren't much to write home about).
- The size of my closet. It's tiny. My stuff is just wedged in there. Over the past year or so, I've gone from big to regular to small. I have purged and haven't really shopped much. I think I'll just have to keep jamming stuff in.

- The new job. I'm learning a lot and now about any current event that matters, all before 10am. And I know I complained about the wake up time (because it's not fun), but having my day to get stuff done, whether or not that happens, is pretty awesome.
- The weather here. We're set to be in the 70s for the next week. I'm not quite ready to let summer go, so I appreciate this.
- The West Wing. I love this show. And it's free to stream via Amazon Prime. I'm getting my money's worth on that one, just in the last week. (Seriously, I'm almost through season three.)
- The G-Whizz! app. I love it because I'm able to keep up with my blog reading on the bus, waiting somewhere, or while West Wing is playing. :)
- The number of new computer programs/systems I'm figuring out. I'm definitely going to learn a ton over the course of the internship.

So, what's been awkward or awesome about your week?


  1. Yay for the new job being awesome! Always a plus! I feel like the 3 months I've been in my current position, I've learned more than the 3 years at my old one. Sad but true.

  2. Glad that your new job is awesome! I'm not a morning person either but I've been getting to work at 7am lately and I really do love that it seems like I have more hours during the day to get stuff done... even though I'm tired and often fall asleep early.

  3. Glad you're liking your job (that's actually a bonus, believe it or not). Awkward this week? Going for a run in the rain and getting drenched and being scared of lightning in the first 10 steps... When will I ever learn?

  4. What's this I read of you having a new job?? I think I need to email you. p.s. we're tiny closet twinsies! ;)

  5. So happy you like your new job- so rare these days! I tried to check out the G-whizz app, but I couldn't figure out how to read blogs! Maybe I'll have to play around with it a bit more. By the way, I nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award!

  6. you always have the best awkwards :)
