So there is a super cool event at the Kennedy Center this weekend, Its a swing dance lesson and then live music and dancing on the terrace over looking the Potomac. I really want to go! However, i do not have anyone to go with other than my best friend and her fiance who are going together. Any one in the DC area and not crazy free saturday night? hit me up at email@example.com
“Twenty-three-year-old Louis Deenan, undeniably the most detestable, loathsome individual ever to walk the earth, willfully decided Monday to devote his miserable life and all of its awful ambitions to the field of marketing. “I think it’s the career path that will best utilize my networking skills and my ability to think outside the box,” said Deenan, whose smug, gloating tone and shit-eating smile just make you want to punch his goddamn teeth in.”—
“I’m starting to think that we can’t leave all things COMPLETELY behind. Maybe the challenge is not in the erasing of our past mistakes but living strongly in spite of it.”—luish, in this post (via missbrightside)
Alright urbanites, I live with the Washington, DC metro area. Our pulic transportation system is officially called the Metro Rail. It is not a typical subway system because it runs both above ground and under ground. It really bothers me when individuals call it the subway. I was sitting on the train the other night and a lady, who lives in DC, kept calling it the subway.”I hate the subway system.” “Im running late but im on the subway now.” It was most frustrating to my life! Its kinda like when people stand on the left side of the escalators coming in or out of a Metro station!!!!!!
So… Michael Phelps eats between 8,000 and 10,000 calories a day inorder to sustain the amount of energy that he uses during races. WOW!!!!!!!!! I would like to point out that thats a lot energy, imagine what he is like when he is not swimming.
Its been said that you can never go home again. I not only believe this; but ask, how many of us would ever want to? Im not just talking about going home to moms house for some good cooking and to catch up on all your old friends. No, Im talking about those of us who have moved away, have left the tiny towns we once called home for greener pastures; Im talking about us going back to those places and starting lives there.
I left home almost 5 years ago for the big city, and could never go back. I dont blame those that stayed, I think that they are just as happy as those who got away. But I, and I think most of us that leave, arent meant for that type of lifestyle. I heard today about a girl who i knew growing up who is barely 18, unmarried and unemployeed, with no car, no degree and living at home is pregnant. She isnt the only one. Most of my friends back home have no college degree, work minimum wage jobs, and live within 15 miles of where they have lived their whole life.
I cant help but think as I pack up my work laptop to get on the metro to head downtown to the nations capital to study for my upcoming LSAT that i am glad i got away. Im Glad i got out. Im glad that once you get out you change enough to see that you are not that person and you are beyond that. Its this change i think that keeps us away, we change in to young professionals, in to city rats, we change in to cultured youth, we change so much that we barely resemble what we were when we left. Im glad that even if for some reason i wanted to, I can never go home again.
I have said it once, i have said it a million times! It has been confirmed again today. Chipotle is trying to kill me and is the preferred restaurant of Satan himself!!! Dont believe me, or justin, or sam, or becky, all of whom have suffered illness from the restaurant; just ask jackie a self acclaimed lover of chipotle. It made her sick today!!!! I am telling you STAY AWAY!
