grumble, grumble, grumble

~Sometimes, it's hard for me to keep my mouth shut, my opinions to myself.
(And then I feel like Michael Scott)

~Why yes, yes we are.

~I've started transitioning myself into drinking Diet Pepsi. I'm at the point where it's starting to taste like real Pepsi. Boo yah.
I'll still probably get cancer from drinking it though. Yips.
On a side note, I almost, almost wish it were cold here.

~While I was completely traumatized by Water for Elephants, I find myself almost desperately wanting to see it again. Which probably wouldn't be good, since it put myself and Emily into weird, funky, depressed moods for the rest of the day. Huh.

Except, Sailor Moon, that I haven't gained weight. I've lost weight. How did I even fit into this dress in the first place??
~I need to start jogging. Like, every day. Otherwise, I won't be able to breathe throughout my cousin's wedding day; Oh, the dress fits, it fits! It looks lovely. It's just that now I have a vague idea of what it must feel like to wear a corset. Ugh, I feel claustrophobic just thinking about it.

~Blogger honesty moment: it's kindof discouraging when you go from averaging 11 or 12 comments per post down to 2, and 3. While your follower count is going up. It's like, when I had a third of the followers I have now, I had more comments. It's odd. And like I said, discouraging. Not that comments are everything. But they help you know you're not just talking to yourself, you know?
Whatever. I quit.
No, no, I don't really. I'm just feeling grumpy.

~Don't you ever just want to get swept away by Prince Charming to a beautiful castle somewhere far far away, where all of your problems in life will be instantly solved?
Well, in the words of Taylor Swift, "I'm not a princess", and "this ain't a fairytale."

I'm irritable today.
I'm going to bed now.


  1. Sorry about the comment thing! We don't get all that many comments either. I have to admit that I am not an avid commenter **blushes**
    I should jog too! Wouldn't it be bad if I couldn't fit into my own wedding dress?!

  2. Hey Lauren? I love you. :') <3

    I'm going to be a bridesmaid for *my* cousin in October, and I got a size up in case I don't lose weight like I want to. :P (Being the only non-teeny bridesmaid she has isn't helping my morale!) Anyways, congrats on fitting, and know that you're beautiful.

    That's happened on my blog toooo. Hm. O.o

  3. yeah, I've noticed a drop in comments too....I suppose it's just the end-of-the-school-year thing. *sighs*

    ohhhh, that picture of Sleeping Beauty made my heart tweak just a little bit. I seriously just want to meet My Guy and live happily ever after. why oh why does Taylor Swift have to be right all of the time?!?!?!? *frustrated sigh*

    love always,

  4. It's strange how you lose weight when you don't intend to, isn't it? I eat foods (that I'm technically not supposed to eat) and then I lose weight. It's the weirdest thing. I don't try to lose weight, but it's from the 18hrs a week of swimming I do.
    I think this post was just lovely. I ADORE the picture of Aurora and the Prince :))
    -Jocee <3

  5. Aw, Lauren! Feel better. We all have our Michael Scott days :)
    Haha I love the picture of Linus - so depressing yet adorable :P

  6. I hope your day starts to look up! Love the first pic.;)

  7. the comment thing really gets me down sometimes too but hey i always look at it like -if i read and comment on at least two other blogs then maybe, i'll at lest get one back, lol. It sometimes works ;)

    I really want to see Water for Elaphants!!

    sam ;D

  8. Awwww well I think you're pretty funny so you'll go in my "pretty funny folder" on bloglovin'. *grins*

  9. you always intrigue me... just remember it is okay to talk to yourself just as long as you don't start answering ;) and you will have your gilbert one day! hey you never know you could already know him! :) ps: that picture of robbie pattz is pretty much gorgeous and so are you :) <3

  10. I know what it's like not to get many comments either. I'm working on leaving more comments myself. :)

    I love that last picture. It's very special looking. :D
