I’ve lived

Let me tell ya! You haven’t lived until you have had some redneck yell “GET OF MY *expletive* LAND!!!”

Any story that ends with, “RUUUUUUUUN!” is a good story.


The answer to “Cheryl, how’s the new job going?”

I wanted to get my feet wet. I didn’t realize I would be struggling to keep my head above water. I’ll get it. I ain’t skeered.

Men have it so easy.

Do men ever sit and wonder things like “I could go to law school, but if I do, what happens when I have kids? Do I spend all that money and time in school to be a stay-at-home mom? Do I want to be a SHM? I mean, maybe I want to work part-time, so I can be with the kids when they get out of school. And if I do work, what kind of job would allow me the freedom to be with the kids. They are the priority. Wait, I don’t have kids. I’m not even married. But what if I make a decisions now that limit my options later. What if all this is a waste? I guess all decisions, by nature, limit other options. What if I never get married and have kids? I could be wasting all this time not pursueing things that would limit my child-rearing options for no reason. Should I home-school one day?”

Nope. Ya’ll just find a job you love and get paid to do it and then marry some girl who is chasing her tail trying to figure all this out.

Girls will get this

I have reached a level of self-confidence that makes me feel like Oprah should want to interview me. Gone are the days of consuming self-consciousness. That’s right. I go the gym. And sweat. Around cute boys. It doesn’t phase me like it use to when I was in college.

But last night, my self-assuredness peaked once more. I had been on the tread mill for about 35 minutes when this guy I use to know got on the one next to me. It’s one thing to not care what strangers think. It’s a whole different story to be self-assured when you’re suddenly face to face with someone you haven’t seen in a long time-especially when it’s one of those “I’d totally go out with him” kinda guys. But there I was, steady and secure, feeling absolutely no need to fiddle with my hair.

I am so well adjusted.

Then again, in order to continue our conversation, I ended up doing 90 MINUTES OF CARDIO. I’m not sure how well-adjusted that is.

Cheryl: My mom’s maiden name is Jones. Hey! Maybe C**** Jones and I are related!

Sara: It’s possible, seeing how “Jones” is such a unique name.

Cheryl: You may have a point.
