January On Instagram

5:39 PM


Currently, I am worshiping at the house of java, it is snowing outside, it is beautiful, and I am trying really hard to keep from sticking my finger in my nose to play with the piercing I just had done yesterday afternoon. I am listening to some Americana playlist on Spotify, and soon Brian, Dan, and Liam will be over to watch the Puppy Bowl, and Super Bowl ads. The guys and I are looking forward to pigging out on chicken wings, and cheese sticks. Kyle is rooting for team Katy Perry, and I can't think of a more perfect end to January. 

This month has been the month of testing my boundaries, embarrassing the shit out of myself, and making some great friends.

Lessons I have learned this month: 

-Despite the enthusiasm of my drinking companions, the $2 drafts, and the charming bartenders at the WAB, I cannot stay out drinking until 11 pm on a Sunday without dying. 

-Puppies can, and will, eat all of your bras and underwear. 

Things that I am loving this month:

-Sia, 1000 Forms of Fear. I have played this album at least 1 million times in the past two weeks, many thanks to my friend Anne for that one. 

-Taylor Swift,  because happy pop music is the best thing to workout to. 

-The time when Dan, Kyle, and I all sang all of the lyrics to One Direction "You Don't Know You're Beautiful" in my car on the way to the bar (it was last weekend). 

-Snow, and winter in general. Everything is grey and not-grey, and quiet, and soft, and so clear. 

-This song. Hey, Asshole. 

-My nose piercing! I've wanted one for ages. 


I had a wonderful month, even the not-so-fun parts. I have a lot to look forward to in February: a Valentine's day gathering, giving my closet a make-over, getting into another love/hate relationship with the gym, and a day spent in Ann Arbor. Plans! Things! Let's go!

1) I went full-on girly for a night out with friends, it was great. 
3) I was hungover as hell last Monday, and spent the day on the couch. 
4) Taylor Swift! Never feel guilty for your pleasures. 
5) Mitten State Mittens!
6) My favorite coffee drink is not a PSL, it is a cold brew with a little lavender simple syrup.
