some decisions.

Recently, I've made some very important decisions.

  1. I'm going to start eating more cheese. I love cheese. So much. So, I've decided that I don't care how many calories are in it or how bad people say that it is for me, I'm going to eat it. And a lot of it. Thus, my friend Sarah and I went to Sam's Club and bought cheese in bulk, because why start eating lots of cheese if you're not going to go all the way? I started with a pound of smoked gouda and a pound of gruyere. Love.
  2. My roomies and I are never going to take our Christmas tree down. Instead, we're going to decorate it accordingly for the various upcoming holidays. I can't wait to decorate for President's Day! I'm going to print out little faces of former presidents at the library with my graduate student print quota.
  3. I'm actually going to FINISH reading a book! I'm a notorious book non-finisher. Somehow, whenever I get to the last few chapters of a book, I just stop. People ask me how I can just stop and not figure out the ending, so I calmly remind them that I always read the last page, just to make sure it has a happy ending. Because I only like books with a happy ending. BUT, I'm reading The Help right now and it is excellent. So I'm going to finish it. Mark my words!
  4. I'm going to move to a city. Well, hopefully. And hopefully that city is either Boston or Providence. Otherwise, I guess I'll still be in Columbia. Or I could always move back in with Grammy and Papa. But, here's hoping I get a job in the East!
  5. I'm going to start saving more money. Because I'm almost a real grown-up and that's what real grown-ups do. Unfortunately, my shopping trip to St. Louis yesterday didn't help with this decision. But I did get a really cute jacket.
  6. I'm going to finish writing my book. Yes, I'm writing a book and it's almost done. Now, I just need to get someone to edit it and then I need to publish it. No big deal.
  7. I'm going to stop wearing pants when I'm at my apartment because I hate pants. Thus, I recently bought my first pair of leggings. Because it's not appropriate to just sit around pants-less all the time, but it is appropriate to sit around in leggings. In fact, I'm not sure why I ever stopped wearing leggings. When I was little, I would only wear "soft clothes," meaning leggings, oversized t-shirts and sweatshirt dresses. I was the softest kid in the neighborhood and I think I will soon be the softest twenty-something in Columbia.


  1. the east is good. you could also consider moving to nashville (still east) because that is where i am planning to move in a few months! also, just fyi, i still have the copy of your book you e-mailed me last spring because i AM going to read it!! miss all you brunners!

  2. I think you should email me a copy of your book because A) I love to proofread (yes, I am a nerd. i do it for fun). B) Book editor is on my list of dream jobs. You could make that dream come true for a small amount of time. C) I would simply love to read anything you write :-) Seriously. I would be thrilled to edit your book!
