"did you watch the VMAs last night?", MTV has pretty much sucked since we were in high school. it was all fun and games at the height of boy band mania, but not so much now. i mean, britney spears is a tragic train wreck, michael jackson died, green day, U2, coldplay and other noteworthy bands dont get within 500 yards of it, and they havent played a music video since 1999. or thereabouts :) however, a coworker must start her day with daily gossip, so that was the topic du jour. "omg, i totally dont get lady, that performance freaked me out" was among one of the topics we discussed.

yea, i got nothing. i dont listen to her music. and she never wears pants. trying to be stupidly crazy is not cool. its stupid. i respect uniqueness, not overtly needing attention. theres a HUGE difference.

this coming from a girl who does, however, like lil wayne, flo rida and akon. yea, i dont get it either, but i blame it on a ghetto gene i have inside me. stems back to when dad and i would bust out to nelly in the car.

anyway, back to the office. it just makes me laugh sometimes at what we talk about. with certain people the conversation topics are so forced, yet i make the effort to not let them feel that way. secretely i am smiling in the back of my mind knowing that i couldnt give a shit about what we are talking about. kill them with kindness though...haha :)

the VMAs?! sure i watched...lets talk about it. haha........

summer OUT / fall IN

And just like that, summer sixteen is over. Hello fall! While I love nothing more than heading out for some miles in the kind of weather that makes it hard to breathe, makes you sweat more than you thought was humanly possible and leaves you a bit red in the face, I equally love the crispness of fall mornings, the smell of fall in the air and apple picking!
Ok, I’ve never actually gone apple picking. I’ve dreamed about it. Glanced at pictures of it. Hoped I would do it. Friends never seemed to want to go – and the boyfriend thing has been a fleeting item on the to-do list. Well, its happening this weekend! Sunday. Sinuses, weather, and whatever else, keep it together. This girl wants to go apple picking! 
Fall sixteen has already gotten off to a busy – and celebratory – start. Mom and bill got married (!!!) which made me really emotional and nostalgic. It was a beautiful weekend and definitely cemented how much I want a love of my own. Been a tough go though – I mean, its supposed to …

2013: a year in review. so far

today is february 22nd.we are already almost 2/12 of the way through 2013. i realize that line may sound uber cheesy, but seriously, time fucking flies.

2013 has definitely been a cool year. hard, confusing, sad and stressful, but certainly cool. parts of it have also been special, funny, amazing and sweet. all of that emotion in 2 months? hey man, im a girl. were dramtaic.

ive got high hopes for the rest of the year. there are a few running races in the books, with more to be added im sure. there will be some heading to see my besties in chicago and boston and bro in NC to name a few. im hoping there is a trip to somewhere warm in the near future...i have no interest in resembling a vampire...that shit has been overexposed already.

the moment hasnt happened to me yet where i go to my bank account and theres an accidental million dollars. regardless i take my dads advice to heart..."hil, never miss an opportunity you really want simply because of money". look, i…

break a sweat - even when youd rather do ANYTHING but.

there is only one way to begin the difficult journey of the holiday sugar detox: break a sweat. 

miraculously i didnt miss a day over the holidays to break a sweat -- but that really just means i got up extra early or ran when people were napping (i.e. full and feeling gross) so not all of my holiday miles or squats were pretty. or felt particular good.

BUT, i laced up and got out there -- or followed along to a dailyburn workout. i kept telling myself i could slow down or take it easier, but shit, im doing a workout.

so basically, what they say is true. no matter how slow you go, youre still lapping everyone on the couch. go get in a good sweat, then reward yourself with some couch time :)
