Just Because They Make Me Smile

So it’s officially been just over a month since I quit my job. At first, it wasn’t too bad. I was getting organizing projects done around the house, cleaned out my closet and shoe collection, and thought long and hard every day about what I really want out of a career. Now, a month later, I am about to lose my mind. Every morning I wake up and sit at the computer for at least 4 hours prospecting job leads and filling out application after application. The session usually ends with my head hurting and me wanting to be far, far away from a computer screen. I have never been without a job since I was 15 years old, and it’s really starting to drive me insane. This week I am trying to think positive thoughts and good vibes, in hopes of getting more interviews!

ANYWAY, these silly gif’s make me smile and laugh because they are of some of my favorite shows and I need all the happiness I can get!! :]

Can never get enough Michael Scott. We watch AT LEAST 2 episodes of The Office a day. My Michael got me addicted.

The OC is probably my all-time favorite show ever. I can’t help it. I will never un-love it, in fact, I think it will be the next show I re-watch (for honestly probably the 15th time) right after I finish watching Sex & the City for the 5th time (yes, I love my TV shows, so what of it?)


My main man Hjalmy!!! This wasn’t a recent game, but his smile makes me so happy!! hahah :]

In hopes that this week will be bring me some good luck…….

all love & smiles :]

Goooooooood morning!

Today is going to be an absolutely FABULOUS day.
My friend Jordan is coming in from out of town, and tonight we are sitting 8th row at the Blackhawks game!!! I have never been that close to my favorite players before! I could not be more excited! We’ll probably venture in the city during the day, grab some yummy lunch, people watch, all my favs :]

On a side note, I dyed my hurr back to red. Not my usual #56, Sangria, MEDIUM REDDISH BROWN, nope, not this time. Michael dared me to try #66, True Red, so I went for it.


In the sun, it’s RED. like RED RED RED fire engine. I absolutely love it! So glad I took the chance on a different color, because I’ve seriously used that same Sangria color for almost 4 years, couldn’t tell you how many boxes I go through of that stuff (plus I have to buy 2 boxes because my hair is always so long). I didn’t really think it looked that bright because indoors it’s actually pretty dark, not too much unlike my old color (although you could STILL tell the difference), so I compared it to Aria’s dark fur color and was like OH WOW. Definitely more red than dark.


And on one more random side note, my great uncle Ed (God rest his newly departed soul) looked just like Jim Halpert as a young boy. As we were going though all the photos of our Great Uncle Ed, I couldn’t help but notice the resemblance. He looks so cute :]


Look at the resemblance:

Uncle Ed: Jim

I stare at Jim Halpert (actor John Krasinski) almost everyday because Michael got me obsessed with The Office. We literally watch it everyday if there’s nothing else on, fall asleep to it, have it playing in the background, you get the picture. One of my all time favorite shows :] Which also made me start to watch Parks & Rec, which is another one I am now obsessed with, the most recent ep made me cry it was so adorable :] I heart Leslie Knope (not as much as I heart Ron Swanson tho) haha.

Off to get ready for my day!! :]

all love & smiles :]
