The one with Thursday things that made me happy

A friend’s dog named Goose… don’t tell me you didn’t need this in your life.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I really have no more shame about anything. I didn’t even eat it out of a bowl like a normal person would- straight out of the can is for people who are hardcore like me 🙂 image

Stuff that I found on the way home (people in Sydney always put stuff they don’t want on the street for people to take…. as a student I am ALL OVER this). Books that are perfect for me- I have wanted to read Wild and see the movie for ages. And the cook books… 15 minute feasts and last minute meals… yeah, as a student I am ALL OVER that aswell.


And good-as-new Revlon nail polish in a gorgeous colour right after I had been telling my sis about how I don’t have many colours here in Sydney with me… thank you universe. Slapped that bad boy all over my nails as soon as I got home.


This yoga sesh that I am definitely pinky-promise cranking out after I post this- it has been a long twelve hours that I’ve been at uni and my body and mind really need this. Note to self: do not faceplant on the bed immediately after posting.


And to finish in my favourite way, on a minion related note, my dad sent me this article about some awesome kiwi peeps who made minions out of their hay bales.

Kiwi ingenuity at its finest; I am a proud NZ citizen when I see things like this.


What were some things that made your Thursday (or Wednesday for people not in my time zone) a happy one?

Current nail polish colour? 

Anyone read/seen Wild? Would you recommend it? 

What did you have for dinner?

    Awww, sweet flower from your sweetie! He’s a keeper. OMG, I had a can of beans for dinner too! LOL, just kidding. That did make me laugh reading that. My dinner wasn’t much better – one of those frozen burritos at my desk at work since I was heading to a hair appt right after work. Hot Pockets was my food of choice during my college days.

    • He sure is 🙂 it really made my day, he is too sweet 🙂 hahaha when you said that for a second I was like really? It wasn’t just me? At least a burrito is more respectable and more like a meal rather than something you just happened to have in th cupboard… lol anyway it hit the spot! 🙂 embracing the student lifestyle over here haha! what is a hot pocket?


      • TechChick says:

        You will have to Google Hot Pockets! We ate them all the time. Very handy, but apparently not the best nutrition wise. They have a bad reputation….


      • Hahaha I loled so much watching that! Not exactly an advertisement for them!! 😉 loved the bit about the jingle “hot pocketttt”- so funny 🙂 googled them and apparently they’ve been described as food not fit for humans?!? I am intrigued for sure, gotta try me one of them just for the experience I think! 🙂


  2. That flower is so sweet! Okay, I loooooove baked beans but I have NEVER seen anyone eat them on a sandwhich…. I can’t wait to try that haha. Current nail polish color is red but I am never patient enough to let them dry so it’s a smudgy red. I had a veggie burger for dinner (covered in cheese of course)!

    • Ooh really? You mean like people usually put them on toast? I am weird and prefer soft bread to toast! I have patience issues too! But I try to mitigate them by multitasking while it dries, eg by writing emails while they dry or reading a book 🙂 Oooh a veggie burger sounds amazing, burgers are the best! 🙂

    haha. I am so glad to see that you are still loving all minion things.!
    and love that nail polish color. 🙂 My finger nails aren’t painted right now, weirdly enough, lately I think my nails look weird painted, but I still paint my toe nails. and they are this peptobismol pink. haha.

    I need to catch up on all your recent posts.!!! I’ve been so out of the loop.

    Those minions totally made my day!
    Also, I JUST finished reading Wild and absolutely adored it. Highly, highly, highly recommend – I hope you love it as much as I did.


  5. Haha, your baked beans on a sandwich cracked me up! I love that nail polish color, great pick! I read and watched Wild. It’s an excellent story, you will enjoy it!


  6. Ahhh, baked bean sandwiches remind me of being a student.
    Also, you are going to LOVE Wild. it’s one of my favourite books.

    So sweet that your love sent you a flower! And hahaha so funny that you finished your cold baked beans out of the can in class. I love that you have no shame because about things like food, I don’t either 🙂


    • Aww I thought so too! Oh I’m so glad it’s not just me! It did cross my mind that it may have looked a little weird to my classmates though! Good thing we are all therapists and pretty understanding 😉
