My baby sister turned 16 today and I'm having a hard time accepting that she's so grown up. I was kinda hoping she'd stay little forever. I should have seen this coming when she outgrew me about 5 years ago. Mehhh. It's also my great grandma's 91st birthday... her genes are the reason I'm a shrimp in a family of Amazons. Happy birthday, ladies!
Saturday marked my three year anniversary at WS. Unfathomable how quickly it's passed, and how wonderful it has been. I've recently been put onto a new account and shuffled some of my responsibilities, so I'm adjusting...
Saturday also marked the start of football season, and I was giddy (like couldn't sit still at my desk!) all week long leading up to game day, fist-pumping when I'd read a Gator-centric story on ESPN.com or gazing longingly at my rapidly accruing makeshift desk-shrine to Tebow. I just can't even put into words how much more I love and appreciate college sports now that I'm a few years out. Ridiculous that I ever took my season tickets for granted. Ridiculous. Then again... I was there for the Zook years. Mehhh. All hail, Florida, hail.
I have asked new roomie Jorel to stop taking me to New Jersey Target in his car whenever I ask. If you can believe it, I've actually saved money living in NYC by not having access to a Target. Yesterday I bought knee high orange and blue socks (why?), a headband with a big black flower on it, some nifty boots, lip gloss, fake flowers for a vase in the kitchen, Fiber One Caramel Bars, Love Actually on DVD, and some other crap I can't even remember... to the tune of $122. This is a change that needs to stop.
There's already a notable chill in the air here in NYC. Wonder what other changes are in store this fall?
