I Did Me Some Learnin

Since I quit my job last month to be a full time writer I've learned many things about myself and life in general.  And what better way to share those things than to link up with Rach at Life Ever Since for Life Lessons!

Let's get started, shall we?

I have learned:


1. That if I don't have to get up and go somewhere every morning I can go days without showering.

2. Just because I have time to do laundry, doesn't mean I will.

3. I can eat an obscene amount of Oreos in one sitting.

4. Without real things to worry about, simple tasks like brushing my teeth seem very overwhelming.

5. Although most of my day consists of going from the bed to the couch to the coffee maker and back to couch, I manage to make a YUGE mess.

6. We do not, in fact, have cleaning fairies who make my mess disappear when I'm not looking. (this lesson was especially heartbreaking to learn.)

7. I have no shame in shuffling down my street at 3 pm in my pajamas to take my dogs out to pee.

8. If I have one meeting a week, I whine about how busy I am.

9. Valerie, from 90210, is a total bitch.

10. Lingo is the worst game show ever invented.

11.  We should totally bring back the $25,000 Pyramid.

12. Pants without an elastic waistband should be illegal.

13. Bras are overrated.

14. The only true worry I have is whether Amy will stay with her fiancĂ© or return to the love of her life in my current WIP. 

15. Life. Is. Good.

  1. I definitely relate to some of these. Number fifteen is the best one of all :-)

  2. I totally agree to all of those, and yep, no. 15 says it all. Oh, maybe you should try a bubble bath with a flute of champagne every couple of days - instead of the shower. ;-)

  3. Oh, I relate to so many of these.

    If you ever find those cleaning fairies, please send them my way!

  4. I'm with you on all of them except one: valerie was a total bitch, but I think Brenda was even worse. Or what about Sydney from Melrose? Wait, was she on 90210, also? Am i hallucinating that? Oh cold medicine...

  5. I guess those are good things to know...

  6. Well, I have a kid at home with me during the day and this still sounds like my days. Her and I live for our PJ's! Mmmmm Oreos...

  7. Oh yeah. Oreo's will loose the battle with me Every Single Time. And ice cream. And cookies.

  8. This made me laugh! I'm also working from home and I can relate to all of these. It's amazing how I can look at a pile of clothes that I had on the day before and think it's a great idea to put them on again. I say, make life easy, even if you look like roadkill.

  9. I see how you are!

    Well, you sound even more like me now. Pretty soon, we're gonna morph into one person!

  10. Elastic pants are my BFF. I'm glad you are enjoying being home!

  11. I find it quite disturbing that we have so much in common because it might just convince me that we are the 'normal' ones... that all the others are stupid psychos all trying to make me think I'm the weird one in some kind of a conspiracy theory. Does that even make sense? LOL

    Oh girl, that is so how I hang these days--in my pajamas, bra-less, watching reruns, worrying about the lives of either fictional character or the rich and famous, and hell yeah! One appointment a week, especially if it's 'work' related, is simply too, too much!

    You and I, we're the cool ones.

  12. I bitch and whine if I have to leave the house before ten. I've got it rough.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wait, you quit your job? God. Damm. You. I want to be you so much more now than I did before, which was quite a lot.

  14. I had no idea we were working the same schedule! Except for the game shows. I've been assigned to watch different shows.

  15. Since I'm also at home right now for who knows how long, I can totally relate to the shower and couch ones.
    The Oreos? If they are Golden or Double Stuff, fugettabotit!!

  16. Last year? When I was home? I figured out that I could buy those Oreos that were vanilla on one side, chocolate on the other. Then I would carefully take them apart to make double stuffed versions of both. Sad. I also became adept at adding the filling from a third to make a triple stuffed version. Even sadder. I did this to avoid showering, laundry and non- yoga pants. The saddest of them all.

    Life. Was. Good.

  17. I live in elastic pants lately and what's a bra? ;)

  18. Sounds awesome! You're right about Valerie, too. I could never stay home because I wouldn't do anything all day long. My husband stays home and manages to do so much. I would lay around all day and then try to clean and cook in the last half hour before anyone got home so it seemed like I'd been slaving away all day.

  19. Love these. I can truly relate.
    Good post!!

  20. I can relate to many of them, but number 6? Why did you write that? Just like Santa when I was 7, I still wanted to believe!

    ReplyDelete
  21. OMG I love you! For a second there I though you had been stalking me and writing about my life... except the whole quitting your job to write thing. And I have one kid home with me two out of the 5 working days to help me make my house a wreak. And I don't take my dog for a walk at 3, because I don't have a dog. But I sometimes take myself or my daughter for a walk... in my pajama pants (okay, not myself... that was a lie). Valerie is a bitch! Pants w/o elastic waistbands were gifted from the Heavens above; but Bras, on the other hand, were cast upon us by pure evil!

  23. Life is good, I'd say! And hey, I don't shower for days either! That makes us soul sisters...I think. Well, smelly soul sisters!
    This was a funny funny post! I came here from Jenn's mention on Twitter!

I had to change my comment settings because I was getting too much spam. You can no longer comment anonymously. (I don't think anyone besides the spammers were doing this.) But I don't want to block the rest of you from commenting! If you're having trouble, tweet me at @sarcasmgoddess or email sarcasmgoddess at ymail dot com and I'll see what I can do to fix it.
