Every Excuse

I am not working out today.

It is the first day of my period.

I was stung by a wasp yesterday and my arm is swollen.

My house is a disaster.

I am tired.

I have to paint.

I have to ship a painting.

I have to edit a stencil.

My workout clothes are dirty.

I’m annoyed.

Its been an unpleasant morning. I’m just irritable (for all the above reasons) I’m sort of annoyed that my job is taking forever to replace one of the supervisors. I’m also annoyed in that I assumed I would be making friends at work (as I have done every year I worked there) but alas I only work with two very odd and very annoying older women. There are zero options for friend making. Bummer.

I just feel a little like something is wrong with me. I am incapable of making friends, because I am a bitch? I’m also mildly insecure and awkward. I’m sure you are all nodding your heads. I just don’t know how to change. Everything has changed so much since I was young. I fear that my four years of solitude in Colorado has made me completely incapable of socializing or meeting people.

SIDE NOTE: Everyone I know is having babies, I’m mildly jealous, but not really. I don’t want a baby now, just soon.

I have no idea how my weight loss is going this week as Mr. Gaunt hides my scale. This makes me angry. I’m a grown up, I should be able to weigh myself if I want to! I bought that scale! Hmmph.

I’m out of yogurt, and it’s only Wednesday. What will I do until Friday? Sell blood for yogurt?

Its one of those weeks.

  1. Hahaha, I love that comic! I saw it on Hipster Housewife 🙂
    I feel a lot like you do about making friends and being social as opposed to negative/awkward/hypercritical. I try to accept everyone else as is, so why can’t I do the same for me?! I think that’s a good place to start?
    We should start a group. “Hi, my name is Dorian, and I am a 26-year-old curmudgeon.”

  2. We all have our moments and some are not so pleasant. You know that even if you can only walk a couple blocks that you will feel better after getting a little vitamin D. Plus, you will feel so much better about your social life after your party! I am going to bring a quinoa salad, I can’t wait!

  3. you are so full of it, everyone always likes you and thinks your SO funny and delightful and crafty and blah blah blah. It’s one of the things that made me hate you when we were kids. Sounds like you are pulling from a shitty pool at premier this season.

  4. Morgan,
    Girl, I adored you when we worked together! In fact, I consider you an inspiration and admire you a lot for everything that you have gotten done!! Think about it. I remember when you were crushing on JJ and wanted to date him…so you did, and now look. You wanted to move…so you did. You hated home depot, so you go a new job YAY! You made your own little business and that’s amazing!! You have lost a lot of weight and are working out and are doing a great job, regadless of the scale. JJ is a good man for hiding it. I make Matthew hide it too at times when I know I’m feeling like a cow. Anyway, you are not socially akward or anything like that! Your time here is Colorado got you JJ and made you grow amazingly. You’re awesome!!! 🙂 We all have these bad days!!! PS: you will make friends, you really are better than you think at making them 🙂 xoxo
