Oh hey, quarter life crisis, what up?
My co-workers keep making fun of me because I’m only turning 25. I mean I get it because they’re all…umm….past 25. And see, the thing is, when they were 25 they were ALL either married or married and had chid’rens. So I’m kind of freaking out. My work/social life balance is off kilter. Strangely for me, I am loving work and having super issues with the social...

Little kids doing “The Hills.” Juuust like the little kids doing “Jersey Shore.” Hilarious.
DAWOL: Drunk Away WithOut Leave– my co-worker, while chatting about quarter-life crises
Rant: work styyyle.
So a couple of months ago I was having trouble getting a guy to respond to my emails/call me back. No biggie, except that the people I usually work with are his bosses. Not like direct ones, but like 3 tiers up. Maybe he doesn’t realize that? Anywho…after a couple of emails to him I finally told his direct boss. And I felt kind of bad about it, but seriously, I need to do my job. Well...
Overheard at work.
An environmental engineer, lead transportation engineer and an admin are talking. Mind you, we just had our sexual harrassment annual training.
environmental engineer: man, who are you sleeping with?!
lead transportation engineer: Me, myself and I!!
admin: damn, boy...sounds like an orgy!!
I mean, come on. Hahaha
Weighing the Evidence of Exercise - NYTimes →
walksinbeauty: But a growing body of science suggests that exercise does have an important role in weight loss. That role, however, is different from what many people expect and probably wish. The newest science suggests that exercise alone will not make you thin, but it may determine whether you stay thin, if you can achieve that state. Until recently, the bodily mechanisms involved were...
Summer house in DT Charleston
So what if I have a real life job. I have a summer house in downtown Charleston. And with my every-other-Friday off, it looks like Charleston/Sullivan’s Island will welcome me 10 days a month. Glorious!! Who wants to come visit???
Everything's Bigger in Texas
I’ll be in Dallas this week for an engineering conference. I’m excited because I get to see a lot of people who live far away that I haven’t seen in a while. And the hotel has an incredible gym!! It should be a fun week. Especially because they sent out a memo from Headquarters reminding everyone about the employee code of ethics. Basically: please don’t get too drunk at a...
ouch. That is all. Because I’m a workout fiend, I make my friends take me to gym classes when I visit. I went up to Charlotte for the day/night on Friday to visit my bff, Bridget. We had the MOST amazing day ever! It was the perfect day to spend in remembrance. We have decided not to dwell on the sadness that looms over April 16th, but enjoy the fact that we’re alive…we...

Tax Day Free Things!! →
Most of these are for icky things (starbucks, cinnabon, tacos del mar [however, their ad campaign “taxes suck, tacos don’t” is incredible], etc.) but I do quite appreciate tax-free shopping at Whole Foods!!
Ah! My office just got Office Communicator. We can now IM with anybody else in our agency…and since we have offices in every state that’s a lot of places! Yay!! (No, I don’t quite see how this is much different from e-mailing them, but somehow I like it more…)
Do not let the deaths of these 32 victims be in vain. Look into your hearts and...– (via thisisourchance) Leigh, I totally just got on tumblr specifically to post this quote. You beat me to it. Love you and I wish we could be together tomorrow! -Tech Sideline, 4/18/07
Check yourself before you wreck yourself.– Cougar Town. This show has really improved since its beginning.
Things I bought today.
I got back from Yemassee, South Carolina today at like 4pm. By the time I would have gone from the Office of Materials and Research (eff yeah, pavements!) to my office, parked and gone up to the 12th floor it would have been time for me to turn around and leave. I decided, instead, to go purchase a cake on behalf of our office to give as a goodbye gift to a trainee and go to the gym early. So...
Tumblr attack! & then my post takes a sad turn
So now we’re all tumbling! One of my bffs, Joey, is now on tumblr. Check her out! But maybe not this week….haha. But not really. See…if you don’t know this, I went to Virginia Tech. And graduated in May 2007 in civil engineering. And was in a sorority, yay! But there was this big ole thang that happened April 16, 2007 (soooo…Friday). Maybe you know it. Anywho, this...
"Ours go to eleven."
Right now I wish I were in the 70s. I would have been so effing fun!! So instead, I think my roommate and I might just put on some Beatles, Queen, John Denver, Simon and Garfunkle, CCR, etc and watch “This is Spinal Tap.” Also, I would look freaking fabulous in 70s fashion. I mean, duh.

I’m not a huge fan of that song, but for some reason it made me get “I Want You (She’s so Heavy)” stuck in my head. I then decided that that’s the sexiest song of all time....
…Will Schuster, I hate you.– ahhh!!!! so good! totes stoked about Sue Sylvester’s Madonna obsession!!
Did you know that dolphins are just gay sharks?– omg Heather Morris is prob my fave person EVER. (BTW - she was on Beyonce’s live tour for two years…dancing her ass off to “Single Ladies.”)

petermcallisterthefaather asked: Hi! I just saw your page, and I am loving the title "Boom. Bazooka Joe." I'm hoping this is a Real World reference from that guy Randy. If I'm wrong, and he was just saying it in reference to SOMETHING ELSE that I don't know about, then I just feel like an idiot. Either way, HELLO! I'm now follwing you. :)
