Decision: After waitressing a significant amount over the past month, observing families of all size and temperament, I’ve decided that in the future, I refuse to be one of those women who goes out to eat and can’t smile once, even when she’s being sung happy birthday. Or a wife who doesn’t have anything to say to her husband except to criticize. Or a mother who can’t...

Has anyone else noticed how much coupons suck lately? I mean, “buy 5 16 oz. Coffee Mates and get 50 cents off.” What the hell am I going to do with 5 Coffee Mates? I may be an addict, but I’m no junkie. (On a side note, it would seem my Tumblr has become a collection of inspirational quotes and unrelated vents against the food industry. Ya dig?)
The serving size of Breyer’s cookies ‘n cream ice cream is half a cup. If you can legitimately eat half a cup and put the carton away, I don’t know how to talk to you.

Oh my gosh. I Googled “waitressing” + “stress” and found this article: “It’s an almost universal hazard of waiting tables: the dreaded nightmare about your job. You know the one. You’re exiting the kitchen door, arms loaded with precariously balanced plates, when you suddenly realize your section stretches out for miles, and you’ll never, ever...
Yup, this sounds healthy
Here’s one problem with waitressing. When you work a night shift and know you have to work in the morning, your mind (or at least, my neurotic one) won’t give you permission to slip into non-work mode, and you can’t sleep. Because the thing is, when I’m waitressing, I’m not myself. I’m myself on hyper-speed adrenaline (aided greatly by Diet Coke refills). My...

stotto: omgitsjpax: I can almost see it That dream I’m dreaming But there’s a voice inside my head saying “You’ll never reach it” Every step I’m taking Every move I make feels Lost with no direction My faith is shaking But I gotta keep trying Gotta keep my head held high There’s always gonna be another mountain I’m always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be a uphill battle ...

I am in a relationship again. It’s toxic, dismissive and only sometimes gratifying — but the rewards are so sweet it makes all the punishment worth it. Waitressing, my bittersweet vice, and I are back together. I sweat, stay on my feet until they are numb, spill boiling hot soup on myself (and if you’re lucky, you as well) and handwash dishes. By the end of the night, covered in...
Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for truth.– Benjamin Disrael

“Every so often I contemplate suicide merely to remind myself of my complete lack of interest in it as a solution to anything at all. There was a time when I worried about this, when I thought galloping neurosis was wildly romantic, when I longed to be the sort of girl who knew the names of wildflowers and fed baby birds with eyedroppers and rescued bugs from swimming pools and wanted from time to...

And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.– Erica Jong
On my resume, I’m honestly considering listing under personal traits and/or skills: “resourceful: able to open a bottle of wine despite lack of corkscrew.” I mean, if you’ve been there, you know what I’m talking about. Dedication.
The honey I just added to my chai tea was “Grade A Fancy” according to the label. I assume that’s the highest honey can go.

I do this all the time. May 10, 2009 — Involuntary “You Too”: Urban Word of the Day When out of habit you reply to a comment with “You too”. This happens to the best of us.

I decided today, I legit have a problem with people who whistle in public.

God's way of telling me to kindly shut up
It would seem I have laryngitis. WebMD sez: “Rest your voice. You do not have to stop speaking entirely, but use your voice as little as possible. Speak softly but do not whisper because whispering can actually irritate your larynx more than speaking softly. Avoid talking on the telephone or trying to speak loudly.” AAAHHHHHH I am going to talk someone’s ear off...
Never regret. If it’s good, it’s wonderful, if it’s bad, it’s an experience.– Victoria Holt Clearly, Victoria Holt has never experienced the morning-after pains of drunk text messaging, but I’ll take it.
Instead of freaking out about graduation I am just going to reinvent the way I view it. For example, is it a milestone signifying entrance into the real world? Hmm, maybe, but I prefer to see it as, an opportunity to buy a new dress, new shoes (oopsies), wear said shoes to fabulous parties this weekend. Lots of checks from relatives, and a nice dinner at DePalma’s tomorrow with the fam....
I would rather trust a woman’s instinct than a man’s reason.– Stanley Baldwin
