Post grad life has been getting me down. It’s rather monotonous and I’m realizing what it’s going to be like with my friends scattered all over the country. Going from having everyone living in the same town, even under the same roof, to being in different states is a change that I definitely wasn’t prepared for. However, my melodrama can only last for so long. People are spilt up all the time in life, it’s just something to accept. Besides, I think I want to start Skype sessions where we all drink wine and watch Sex and the City on DVD at the same time. A classy activity that can be done anywhere, anytime.
To lighten the mood of this post, I’m acknowledging a few things that are making the end of college a little bit less upsetting. Not everything about home is awful; my big, cloud-like, bed, the ten minute drive to Target, my mom cooking for me and having more than five restaurants to choose from for dinner. On top of those, here are four more fab things that I’m enjoying right now.
Have a lovely day!

I have been avoiding this blog. My Pisces personality kicked in after about a week of not posting; Pisces personality meaning avoiding & ignoring. But today is the day I will break the cycle! My astrological confinement will no more keep me from posting pointless information on the internet that could someday ruin the chance of running for office or opening up a dog photography studio.
I have decided to do something different with le olde Ugly Friend. I have decided to start posting rant and rave posts. If you have read any of my entries you know that I am far from lacking an opinion, and I think I’d like spill out the thoughts I have when I see things like gauchos on thirty-three year old women or a beautiful, overweight pug panting on a porch. I’ll still throw four fab things posts out there, and lord knows stopping my ramblings would be as easy as getting Paula Deen to ration her butter use.
So there it is. Hopefully y’all think this is worth your time and more important than watching baby seals or pre teen stars gyrating in music videos on YouTube. In the meantime, here are a few fab things. A few meaning, GASP!, four of them.
Have a lovely day!

I’m gonna get straight to the point in this little posty and ignore the fact that I haven’t posted since last month. Because you, my beautiful, caring, dedicated reader will love me no matter what. Right? AM I RIGHT?
So, I stumbled up a blog that literally had my crying, snorting, laughing an embarrassing amount today and I want to share it with you because that is what Barney taught me to do when I religiously watched his television program back in 1996. The blog, my friends, is call The Frenemy and you can view it in all it’s sarcastic beautiful wit HERE! I am obsessed and will now dedicate me life to it and create a cult around it and not shave my underarms or pluck my eyebrows and stuff. Please comment and tell me y’all feel the same way and would like to join my cult (we can all buy new sneakers!) … did anyone actually get that ’80’s cult reference joke?
Should I post pictures today? Probably. I think we all know why this blog has readership – and it isn’t my run on sentences and subtle insults at everyday things. So here we go.
Have a lovely day!

Imma b short n sweet this morning, only because I have a reading quiz to prepare for and my need for Perks coffee right now is crippling. It has been slightly difficult to jump into this week after such a relaxing weekend at home, making class and meetings slightly painful. It is kinda an Easter tradition for my two best pals/roommates to come home with me for the holiday; a tradition that I absolutely adore due to the fact that all the people who tolerate me and my nuttiness are all in one place. The more time I spend away from my family at school, the more I realize how much they mean to me.
Yesterday I walked into the wrong (full) classroom, my phone went off (loudly) in the middle of class and tripped up a (busy) stairwell. Clearly, I was not ready for the week to begin. Sometimes I still feel like I’m an awkward, gangly freshman in high school – minus the shiny orthodontia (seven years of my life my mouth was taken over by metal, I probably could’ve gotten cable). Anyway, here are four things from my weekend that made it the perfect rejuvenator.
Have a lovely day!

If you have ever read my blog before, you know that I am graduating in June. If you haven’t … I’m graduating in June. It is an odd experience to still be in classes and student organizations all while applying for jobs. I’m going to be honest – I am desperate for a job. I have been applying and applying, trying to contact anyone who might be able to help and basically pimping myself out to different companies via my resume and cover letter. It is hard to think of all the hard work I’ve put in through college and not automatically get an offer for a $100,000 a year job with benefits and a private jet and a personal masseuse. THIS IS WHEN I REALIZE I’M BEING MELODRAMATIC. Everyone works hard in college, not just me. I am not going to be a shoe-in or perfect for every job. It all takes time – time I am willing to put in if it means I am going to find a place that appreciates my odd sense of humor and somewhere I can utilize my creativity. I can’t wait until I find it.
Here are my fab four, the few things that keeping me from picturing myself living in a cardboard box and tap dancing on the sidewalk for change after June 11th.
Have a lovely day!

As I sat on my couch tonight and ate the BW3 takeout wings I ordered while wearing a shirt that would’ve been appreciated and probably admired at a Jon Bon Jovi concert (“That shirt is straight livin’ on a prayer!”), I thought about how much I enjoy springtime and independence. I thought about how I could have eaten fourteen of those wings, proceeded to wipe my hands all over my shirt and then move onto eating a pound of chocolate cake if I truly wanted to. I even could’ve done it sans clothes. Isn’t it beautiful to be free of personal restriction? I love being able to do what I want without feeling regret or a need to justify my actions; I truly feel like I getting older when I realize that how comfortable I am with wanting exactly what I want. (The only exception to this is when I ate three fourths of a can of parmesan cheese, getting past that low point will take a lot of time and probably ice cream) I will proceed to make a list of other things I love doing/having that I am unashamed of.
- Watching hours of Gilmore Girls. Knowing hundreds of Gilmore Girls quotes. Seeing the entire Gilmore Girls series almost five times through.
- Working out at 11:15 PM.
- Sleeping until 10:30 AM.
- Taking four different vitamins a day as well as drinking an Emergen-C.
- Having a big fear of falling down the stairs. (Particularly cement ones.)
- Wearing four necklaces at a time.
- Knowing almost everything about Astrology. (All muh Pisces holla at yo gur!)
- Having dreams about people eating my hands? Please contact me if you have any idea what that means ..
While looking for jobs (please note I’m a hard worker and posses wit that is a rare treasure!!!) it is becoming more and more clear to me that college will be over in less that eight weeks. After these treasured eight weeks are over, it will be difficult to love post-grad livin’ without an acceptance of myself. Thinking what I do sucks will only make my life suck, which would suck. And the word suck is extremely unattractive and it would be unfortunate if I had to use it on a daily basis to describe my life. Plus the innuendoes and the “that’s what she said” jokes would probably make me want to duct tape the mouths of those around me. Possibly that would be going too far.
Here are the fab four!
Have a lovely evening!

The idea of “waking up on the wrong side of the bed” has never made much sense to me. How can one side be wrong? When do you pick what side is right? Is it you that actually picks the right side, or is it something you just know? What if your bed is against the wall on one side and the one that’s open is the bad side, do you always have a bad day?
How is it possible that I could talk about this phrase for so long? The fact that this is a saying and most don’t take it seriously makes me wonder why I have discussions in my head about these things.
Whether or not this saying merits a discussion or has any meaning behind it, I think I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. While it was productive and I was excited to get stuff done with organizations, school and job searching, I was just bleh. I really dislike walking around with a negative feeling on my back. It doesn’t help that my face is like a neon Vegas sign advertising how I feel, something that I’ve really been trying to work on. I don’t ever want to take out my frustration about being hungry/lack of sleep/a bad grade/finding people’s hair in the shower drain (one of my pet peeves that I simply cannot let go, sad but true) on other people. So, when I have days like these I’ve decided to remind myself to:
The only exception to this rule is eating six mozzarella sticks or a pint of mint chocolate chip because an hour after consumption I usually feel like cutting myself open and scooping out everything I’ve ever eaten.
The next four pictures are things that made my frown turn upside down (kindergarten phrases, holla!) today and stop walking around like Emily the Strange. If you don’t know who that is, google it. If you don’t feel like googling it: she wears a lot of black, frowns and hates everyone/everything.
Here are the fab four.
Have a lovely evening!
