I genuinely hate that song, almost enough that just having it as the title of this post was too much. But it was fitting, so I left it. But let's make it clear, that is NOT one of my favorite things. Gross. Hate.
Anyways, I've discovered a few new things that have quickly earned *favorite* status around these parts and figured it would just be selfish not to share. Though, I'm very aware that there's a good chance these favorites will be something you don't want / need/ like / etc. Either way, I'm sharing. So there's that.
Guinness. Wow I spent a LOT of time thinking Guinness was this disgusting beer. I remember once hearing someone say you could eat it with a spoon (FYI: this person is incorrect). I thought it was the heaviest, nastiest, thickest most disgusting excuse for a beer ever. Then I did something crazy. I actually tried it for myself. Lo and behold, this shit is sweet nectar of the Irish God. Honestly - it's the only alcoholic drink I'm craving and I have a fridge stocked (thanks mom!) I love it. I can't wait to have one soon (t-1 hour for anyone wondering).
My Adele station on Pandora. Without even knowing I needed one, Pandora has created a perfect "I'm post-break-up, mid-figuring out where my life is, need steady mix of girl power and sad breakup songs" playlist for me. I've got a note card by my keyboard where I've been writing down the gems as they play from this station. And, to give a taste, if you have not heard Adele's version of "To Make You Feel My Love," find it. Do whatever you need to do to listen to that song. And then pretend like you didn't get all teary eyed as you listened to it!
I'm Bringing Blogging Back. Ok, so I don't think it's a big secret to anyone but I LOVE Teen Mom. And I'm just as big a fan of Teen Mom 2. I have no idea what it is about pregnant teenagers / teenage moms but I am so hooked. Like honestly (because it's just you and me here), it's probably the show I get most excited for each week. It's sick, I know. It's wrong and trashy and does NOTHING to stimulate my brain. But I love it so. So you can imagine what kind of explosion happened in my brain when I discovered there was someone blogging HILARIOUS recaps of my favorite show(s). (Ok, if I'm being REALLY honest, I also enjoy Jersey Shore. Seriously. I even tried to "quit it" during season 2 and then I found it on demand one day while I was on the treadmill and ended up on walking for an hour and a half because I wanted to see more...it's a sickness people!) It's also a little contest I have with myself to see if, on Wednesday morning, I can read his re-cap without laughing out loud to the point of distraction at work. It's gotten pretty close sometimes.
Total Bodyworks Class. I am quite certain most gyms have a class similar to this. It's a weight lifting class that has music, and we all do the same exercise with free weights. It's basically like working out in a group with a personal trainer. And while I spend the majority of class cursing like a sailor under my breath, and the rest of the week cursing like a sailor in between grunts as I can hardly move my legs, I really do like it! I like feeling sore...makes me feel like I did something! Plus, according to my HRM I am burning between 600-700 calories a class...can't hate that!
So anyways, I figured we were all bored of my, "blah blah this is my reality..." business and we needed a break. These are things that are also a part of my reality. And these parts of "my reality?" They kick some serious ass.
