Awkward and Awesome: Early morning edition

If only you could see me right now. My roommates cat's have me pinned. Since I work early mornings and then have school and other commitments most evenings, Napoleon, Mittens, and I spend a lot of quality time together during the day.

Whether I want to or not.

And if you follow me on instagram, you've probably noticed the sudden influx of cat pictures. When in Rome...

Anyways, my grand plans of prepping for the week and catching up on commenting kind of failed. Luckily I still have this evening to accomplish some of that. The commenting at least. I hope.

For now, though, I leave you with some of my awkward and awesome moments from the past week. At least you can count on me for these posts.

- Having to be at work at 4 a.m. I don't know how reporters do it on a regular basis. Seriously.
- I took my computer in once for a small problem and it was supposedly fixed, but I don't think it actually is. And now my headphone jack doesn't work. Awesome. I need to take care of a few things, though, before I can go back in to Apple, just in case they have to keep it a couple days.
- Never being able to grocery shop for just a couple items and always thinking just a basket will be enough. I always look ridiculous by the time I get to the register.
- Also, half of my $50+ grocery bill today was dairy. I don't know what that says about me, except that I'm definitely not vegan.

- Getting to go out with a reporter for a morning. It was fun to see how things work outside the station, even if we were outside all morning and it was cooold.
- We also got to ride back to the TV station in a cop car. My first! And no cuffs involved.
- Taking naps two days in a row this week, for a total of 7.5 hours. Bliss. I haven't napped today in hopes I can fall asleep early.
- Getting excited for the election. In part because ads will finally disappear, but also because I feel like I've been following things pretty closely and am interested to see how everything plays out. I'll be working that night too, so I won't have to get up at the crack of dawn.

Any awkward or awesome moments from your week? Please share!


  1. Going out with a reporter for a morning sounds so cool! I can totally imagine you doing that more often.

    Miss you!!

  2. I'm so done with the political ads. SO DONE.

    Happy weekend, lady!

  3. Well, you read about Ugly Naked Guy... that has been pretty awkward. But I made it to the gym three times this week... awesome! Have a fantastic weekend! :-)

  4. Oh gosh, I haven't napped in FOREVER! Might just have to take one today. That sounds just perfect ;)

  5. Political campaigns need to stop wasting so many trees. :/
