New Years Resolutions

new-year

 

I’m not a person to make resolutions because I feel like they can be easily broken. I am more of a person that just changes my lifestyle to fit my needs for that time.

This year, I have decided that I would actually write out resolutions and share with you guys…also so you can hold me accountable. I’ll break it up into sections and than add the resolutions under each.


LIFE/HEALTH

  1. I will eat healthier.
  2. I will get into the best shape of my life.
  3. I will be happy.
  4. I will help more people.
  5. I will be a better person, just in general.

WORK

  1. I will continue working on my blog and create engaging content.
  2. I will reach 10,000+ blog followers for 2017.
  3. I will become very successful in my career.
  4. I will love my work.
  5. I will help people through my job.
  6. I will finish writing my book.


That’s all I have folks! I know I should have been doing this all along but I’m sticking to these!!!!

Let me know your resolutions and also if I need to add any to mine!

THANKS!

Boundaries

Sorry, it’s been a while! 🙂

Let’s get to it!

Everyone has boundaries. Whether they are social, personal or relationship boundaries…you have them.

As for me, I have a lot boundaries. It could be my crippling anxiety or my comedic distrust in people, but it’s quite evident when you have crossed my boundaries.

Over Christmas break, I was unable to go home for the holidays! 😦

But I got invited to a girlfriend’s house, whom I spent Thanksgiving with. It’s always drinking and laughs, so I did not mind.

So my friend has a very fun and very sweet, younger  sister, whom I have totally clicked with. We text all the time and she’s just awesome.

Well, her fiance was there for Christmas. There is only one word to describe him and that’s ‘blah.’  He just not someone I would expect her to date. To each his own.


Anyway….they have been together for 2 years and will be married in 3 months. I don’t know if they are still going through a phase or what but he can’t keep his hands off her. It’s pretty uncomfortable. I get it when people are in love and they just like touching each other and what not. I get it.

I’m no prude but when you are at a family gathering, as this one was, you’d think people would be a little more conservative.  I’m not saying they should sit 10 feet away from each other but damn! They were constantly kissing and sitting in each others lap and she had a tiny skirt on. I mean, her 95 year old grandmother was there. I was literally so uncomfortable with it. It’s like they have taken each others independence.


In a relationship, I need my own space. Her mother, who is a lovely woman, keeps her mouth shut about pretty much everything said to them, “do you guys just ever stop touching each other?” Even if this woman knows whats up.

Anyway…he literally has to touch her at all times. Have you ever met an annoying couple like that?

Am I making this into something bigger than it is?


I Don’t Cook

There are probably a total of 3 things that I cook and 1 of those includes easy mac. And being snowed in yesterday (12inchs) I went in a downward spiral food absorption/binging. I’m not very proud of this but I did get a pretty awesome recipe out of it.

As I was looking in my cabinets and fridge for a decent meal, I thought everything was going to be lost. So I searched the internet for 3 ingredient recipes and I cam across one of my favorite and probably easiest recipes by far. Breaded chicken breasts.


 

Now, I know you are thinking. It’s just breaded chicken. Ha! No it’s easy as shit breaded chicken.

Ingredients

2 Eggs

2 Large Chicken Breasts

Ritz Crackers

Butter

Salt

Pepper

^Look at that! That is literally it!

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Whisk 2 eggs in a bowl.
  3. Mix crushed crackers, salt and pepper in a separate bowl (*I also added a little garlic).
  4. Dip your chicken breast into the eggs, then into the cracker combination.
  5. Place in pan.
  6. Sprinkle the leftover crushed crackers on top of chicken.
  7. Put 4 teaspoons (or how much you would like) of butter around the chicken in the pan.
  8. Pop that bitch into the oven for 40 minutes or until the juices run clear.

Then walah! You have breaded chicken! So freaking delicious! You can thank you me later!

Love,

Writer’s Block

So I have been working on a novel and have been kind of stuck. I would like to share an excerpt in an effort to get some feedback.  My hope is to get constructive criticism and hopefully get out of this rut.

Also, it is currently snowing in Chicago and it’s beautiful!

Please let me know your thoughts!

“You’re perfect, Vanessa,” he said while his finger gently brushed a piece of hair off of her face. She didn’t realize she was holding her breath until he moved his hand. She sighed heavily and said “Oh come on, stop. Now, you’re just being silly.” She looks down because she can’t seem to keep eye contact with him for too long.

He looks at her, “you sure can’t take a compliment, can you?” She looks up and then that gorgeous smile spreads across his face and it stirs a very deep sensation within her. She feels her shoulders arch back and her knees push tighter together. She envisions his lips on her neck slowly kissing lower and lower, moving towards her collarbone. “Hey Vanessa, are you still with me??” He startles her and she snaps out of her dream and they continue to discuss work…

9 Months Earlier

“Beatrice, there will be some new changes, again, in the scheduling. I’m sorry to do this but can you stay later today so we can catch up on this work?” she asks her assistant while she is holding a stack of papers. More and more projects were being added lately and it seemed that nothing was going right for Vanessa. She recently accepted a new position as a Director at a firm and she really thought things would get better. She was making more money, recently engaged, but she still wasn’t happy. Her boss really micro-managed her and she could never get anything completed because he always seemed to be standing in the way. He was also very short-tempered and was constantly putting down her and her staff’s work ethic. She has also started a really unhealthy habit of taking down one bottle of wine a night and then passing out due to her building anxiety and alcohol induced sleep.

Anyway…there is a little slice.  It’s actually the beginning of the novel, so just let me know what you think!

Thanks!

Oh Boy…

I don’t pretend to know everything about relationships, but I do have a lot of experience. Really, from my own relationships, dealing with my friends, etc. Apparently I give good advice. That sounds braggy. Anyway.

Recently, I got a text from my married girl friend. She thought her husband was cheating on her. This text also came at 2am so I was completely out of it. She began telling me why she thinks her husband was cheating.

The back story is that he previously was texting another woman (also his co-worker) and then hiding it from her. Some how or another, she found out he was texting her and she called him out…everything was squashed and things were good between them again. Back to reality.

Okay…so I get this text from her the other night, thinking her husband was cheating. My first response is, “Why do you think that?”

She told me about his phone going off at 1am a few nights in a row. She was like “wtf?!” Who is texting him this late for the past few nights. Her curiosity takes over, so she decides to go through their wireless online account and found a number that he was texting frequently day and night, almost all day.

At this point, she is pissed. She’s like who in the fuck is this? She goes on Facebook and searches by the cellphone number and finds out it is the previous girl that he was talking to….his coworker. Now I’m awake and completely hype. I’m like “oh no he didn’t!” And she’s all like “Oh girl, yes he did!”

While he’s asleep, she goes through his phone and doesn’t find the number. Then I get a text saying that he has deleted the number from his recent texts! Well, that’s not sketchy at all.

At this point, I am awake and alert, thinking my friend is going to straight murder her husband. (Side note: they have a newborn baby. And the plot thickens!)

He denies that anything inappropriate was going on. I’m not sure how I feel about it. If nothing inappropriate was going on, then why delete the texts?

So what was his intentions? She may have been neglecting him because of the baby and he feels like he needs attention. I’m just not sure. It’s all very strange.

I think when you are married or in a relationship, if you have to hide things then it’s definitely not right. I feel like people shouldn’t even put themselves in that situation. It’s just disastrous and can ruin a great thing. People shouldn’t even put themselves in this type of situation.

What’s your input? What is your definition of cheating?

Side note: Women are smarter than they put on. We are also good at getting information. Just saying.
