no wonder people have trust issues

reading magazines and seeing ads that are photo-shopped beyond recognition are only the tip of the iceberg as to why people dont really trust much these days. we have an economy thats in the shitter with a president who thrives on empty promises. below you will find a few other items that make me not trust you or find you inherently cool.

1. instagram
we get it, your instagram photos look really cool. ill admit, i LOVE instagram as much as the next person, but it doenst make you inherently cool. millions of people have it. so excuse me while i dont lose my shit over you instagramming ever picture. it doenst make you a photographer. if this is news to you, i am sorry.

2. FB friend requests with no mutual friends
i am immediately skeptical of this. FB is not the place where i want to be friends with some guy just cause hes hot, or some chick cause she thought i looked nice. if there is not one other person that can vouch for your existence and sanity, then do you really exist? this puts you in the same category as a predatory human that probably wants to eat my face after  you dabbled a little too freely in bath salts. when i see 0 mutual friends, i see evil.  i am not in a place where i aim to have as many cyber friends as possibl. if you are, i am sorry, there are other people who will love and appreciate your friend request. this also applies to twitter accounts with egg icons. if all i see is an egg,i instantly imagine crazy.

3. skinny girls who constantly upload pictures of fattening food
look at all the cake i am about to eat! look at this pasta! let me just say, i find most food pics on instagram and facebook to be incredibly useless and obnoxious. there are always exceptions, say your besties birthday cake or the 109839284 cookies you and your buddies baked (that shit needs to be shown!!), but actively uploading lots of food pics annoys people. my skepticism increases heavy when i am bombarded with pics of greasy pizza, late night ice cream binges, and cupcakes office-deliveries uploaded by some 94lb sorority girl or gangly hipster chick. bitch please, your hip bones are sharp enough to open cans. were not buying the idea that you devour a large dominos on the daily just because you uploaded it and captioned it “nom nom nom”. admit your starving like the rest of us and carry on your merry way.

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 :)

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…

march madness

i have come to find the madness of life happens far beyond march. that said, when we really think about it, lifes madness is a gift, right? i mean that in a "take the good with the bad" kind of way, not so much that i love the madness.

i live in madness. all the time. i love so many things about NYC - but sometimes, those same things are the things that sending me screaming into my pillow or heading out of town at a moments notice.

take this past weekend. i had had enough of NYC - sleepless nights, work stress and a nagging running injury. it was one of my best childhood friends birthdays, so i hopped on a train for a 3.5 hour ride to newport for an incredible night filled with endless prosecco and bread, birthday cake and wonderful memories and laughs, i returned to NYC 24 hours later (after a 5 hour wi-fi less ride) a better person. sure, the ride back was brutal - but the sore abs and messy hair reminded me that it was exactly what life is about.

madness, baby. may it las…
