Periods are so much fun.

Orchid - Death of a Modernist

Between binging on chocolate, popping Midol like it’s going out of style, and spending Christmas money on various absorbencies of tampons, I don’t know what I enjoy most about being female! But for serious: I still have that cold, so I’ve been extra miserable today.

On Tuesday I went grocery shopping (more “grown up” fun…) and did pretty well with staying away from things like bagels & cream cheese which totally make me overeat. I did get some stuff to make burritos (which I’ve been in the mood for) but got low-fat cheese and fat-free sour cream, hells yeah! I’m not exercising, but by eating way less, I’m still losing a bit of weight, even with all this bloating (I hate that word). Go me!

I’m now staying with my mom until early February, because Justin doesn’t work at Aeropostale anymore and he wants to be sure he has enough money before buying me a ticket home. I’m trying not to get in the way over here, but I think I’m an asshole magnet. Annoying people just seem to find me. The soundtrack in my head is on repeat and goes something like: “avoid confrontation. avoid confrontation. avoid confrontation.”

My days are really boring. I’m already looking forward to spring… isn’t that crazy? I feel like the cold just makes me lazy and dormant.

    I’m looking forward to spring too smile Not only does it mean my birthday is near, but it means I can leave the house without a million layers on xD I feel the same as you, the cold just makes me not want to do anything at all.

    I’m just tired of all this dumb weather we’ve been having in Washington… it’ll snow super thick and crazy but it only lasts several hours. By the next day everything is either just soaked or frozen. Its really lame. I can’t wait until it gets warmer… which means less layers and chances to wear flip-flop-thong sandals!

    Ahh yeah I’m not bigger than you, I’m still working on it. I’m only at 0 right now. I definitely love love love skinny boys with big gauges, though! mmm I also think it’s an added bonus if they have their lip pierced towards the side ♥ it kills me it’s so gorgeous haha! Anywho, maybe I can still help you with that question? I’ve got a lot of friends who are at like 1 inch up to 3 inches & I’m sure I could find out for you?

    Aunt Flo sucks. Period.
    I’m glad I don’t get cramps… Well, I do, but hardly any. Screw you for still losing weight… even cutting down on food and eating healthy and right never helped me lose weight. Even combining it with exercise — cardio and weights — I still gain weight! Argh!!

    I think we’re all looking forward to spring. I can only take so much of cold weather.

    I get so dormant in the winter, even though it doesn’t get that cold here. I just love the summer and heat. Kudos to you for losing weight!! Yay! =]

    You’re probably right, but by that statement of “the most powerful” I did feel kinda threatened. But we did get Americanised, the only thing that’s missing is Starbucks! I just hope the political madness doesn’t take it’s toll here sd2
    & That’s the exact reason why I don’t like to go grocery shopping, you can’t get gain weight when there’s nothing yummeh at home! I think it’s normal that cold makes you lazy, it would be awkward if it wouldn’t!

    Good for you being that healthy! God I wish I was too!

    I want spring aswell. I want it badly and I want it now.

    I think the winter makes everyone lazy. It takes me a good 20 minutes just to get out of bed. I would much rather sleep in all the time. :) Congrats on having the will power to maintain a healthy diet I’ve already failed at that, though I’ve been eating a lot less junk throughout the day.

    Lol. I always overeat when I have bagels as well. They’re just so good!

    As much as I love winter, I’ll admit that I’m also looking forward to spring. I used to hate the warm months when I lived in the South, because the heat was so oppressive, even in spring. Now that I’m back to living in Washington State, I adore spring. And spring means I get to buy more pretty plants to put outside my home! *lol*

    ! The cold makes me feel dormant, too! I always look out my window and think “I’d go outside and play…but it’s SOOOO cold!” ebil winter.

    Hehe, I love how small Teen Vogue is, too. It almost seems like the little sister of Vogue. ;)

    Lmao, GQ adverts. cute

    Wow a new layout! It’s been a while since I’ve been here! Speaking of periods, do you hang out with anyone so much that you guys are on the same schedule? I was with my friend Adele every day in high school and we always had our periods at the same time. So funny. Yay for losing weight. I can’t stand to eat most of that fat free or reduced fat crap. Ick. Good luck with it though!
