Friday Feats & Fails 01/02/2015

Ahh, New Years.  A time to look back over the past year and how you feel about how things went.  I had a lot of big changes.  There were hurts, and there was joy.  2014 was a big year of personal growth for me.  I'm feeling really good about it.  And while I'm not making "official" resolutions, I hope I just keep growing in 2015.

But let's talk about the week!

- I let something that happened at work bother me way more than I should have.  It was a small, though completely passive aggressive and dickish, thing but... I let it irk me for way too long.

-  Speaking of passive aggressive and dickish behavior, it was a theme this last week and in response I was an equally passive aggressive dick and shut down my personal Facebook account for a few days.  When people started worrying, I realized how awful it was for me to punish everyone (especially the people who care about me) for the actions of a few that perhaps I need to remove from my life.

-  I still don't know how to save.  I know this because there was a little money left over after paying bills, and instead of doing the smart thing... I splurged on sushi with a friend, a new piercing, the Hips & Curves Semi-Annual Lingerie sale (twice), a Sourpuss cardigan, and a mug.  Frivolous, I tell ya.  But whatever, I paid the bills first.
- I was late sending out Christmas cards, and I have some things I bought for people that I haven't shipped yet.  Because... I'm me. 

- I put myself in a situation to hurt someone's feelings by making impulsive decisions.  And that's all I'd like to say about that. 

- I'm still trying to grow out my hair.  The problem with growing out your hair is long hair.  It's driving me frickin crazy.  I kind of hate it.  There.  I said it.

+  I bought a bunch of veggies and I've been vegging out.  This is both good and not good.  I feel bloated, but I'm still hungry.  That is kind of annoying.  I'm just trying to focus on the fact that I'm trying to eat good (and not focus on the jumbo bags of jerky I ate in the past few days).

+  I got to have an amazing Berries & Cream crepe last night with a really nice guy in a local coffee place which was full of hipster musicians.  He then told me all kinds of interesting historical things about downtown which I loved because I'm nerdy and love our downtown district when it isn't full of drunk college guys.  And at least the hipsters were talented.

+ Did I mention the crepe?  Crushed berries with sweetened sour cream.  *melts into chair remembering amazing crepe*

+  Hung out with the family for NYE.  It was a pretty good night.  Except for all the fruit pizza and artichoke dip I ate.  Just kidding, that was amazing and I have no freakin regrets.

+  I slept in New Year's Day.  It was glorious. 

+  I took my nephew to Chuck E Cheese on Monday night.  It was great and we had a lot of fun.  I love being able to spoil him with overpriced rip-off games once or twice a year without the pressure or annoyance of a birthday party.  Plus, I had slips leftover from the last time I took him so he got an even bigger prize.  The upside?  I got LOTS of steps in on my FitBit AND I've maintained my status as "bestest Auntie ever" for awhile.  

Ok.  I think that was everything in the past week.
