Am I eating a muffin or drinking a beer? -Megan
He kissed me so slowly with an open mouth and every single thing in my body-my...– Kathryn Stockett (via quotewhore) (via letterboxlove)
I don’t think Burns likes me. I got the feeling that he was annoyed with me being there.
I sent Boyfriend some pretty risque NSFW pictures last night because I could. Sometimes I’m really confident in my body and appearance.
Sometimes I wonder if *you* ever worry about me leaving you. I know you’re super confident & all (& I’m totally not going to) but I wonder.
The trickle-down effect is fucking SWEET.
My grandmother has these ridiculously rich friends strategically placed around the globe. I get a call from one of them at 10 this morning:
Chris: "Hey Alyssa! How are you? Are you working today?"
Me: "Hey! Nope, I took the day off."
Chris: "Perfect! That's excellent."
Me: "No, not really. One of my friends was killed this weekend and I'm taking some me time."
Chris: "Yeah, your grandmother told me about that. I'm sorry to hear it. Now, I was thinking, what better way to deal with grief is there than going shopping?"
Me: "Shopping is pretty cathartic..."
Chris: "How about I pick you up at 2 at Glenmont and let you into my place back in Baltimore. I'll give you some money and you can go shopping while I finish up at work. Then we can go out for a nice steak dinner and catch up, and there's a pool on top of my building to swim in afterwards. We can even go on my boat if you want."
I want to go hug all of my sisters and teammates...
This shit sucks.
Something that bothers me about the World Cup...
People spend so much time freaking out about the vuvuzelas and how annoying they are, how they should be illegal, etc., and don’t acknowledge the issue of sex trafficking in South Africa. There are thousands more people in South Africa because of the Cup, which means the demand for prostitution is higher. Any good (or even half decent) businessman knows that in order to make the best profit,...
I had the weirdest dream the other night at the...
It was in about 4 years. Zak was back from Israel for I want to say one year, and we were talking about getting married. The only problem was part of his family, who are all gung-ho about us getting married right now, decided they didn’t like me anymore. They wanted him to marry Krista, his friend IRL, who was his cousin in my dream. There were two factions of their family—to be...
On Saturday morning, my sister/teammate got into a...
I expect she died on impact, but no one really knows what exactly happened. I hope it was painless, as she didn’t deserve to be hurt like that. I remember I didn’t used to like her, back when she was just a teammate and got field time because she was the captains’ sorority sister. After I joined Theta, I got to know her better. I came to understand the bond between her and the...
Rape culture is telling girls and women to be careful about what you wear, how...– Shakesville: Rape Culture 101 (via littlelightx, amberlrhea) (via krona) (via fight-war-not-wars) (via feistyfeminist)
I miss little things when I’m not living with Zak, like not having a ton of his hair to pull out of my brushes all the time.
They did it again.
Update #2 of the family’s summer plans, again without so much of a word about me. Fuckers. Maybe I’m bitter because they’ve been telling me about the plans for this trip for a year and a half and didn’t bother asking me if I wanted to go or even hint at inviting me. Not that I would have gone (though it *is* Bermuda), but the offer would have meant a lot. Whatever. I...
Hey guys, I'm writing a blog for the DC Rape...
You should follow it and submit cool things to blog about from the Crisis Center’s point of view. dcrcc.tumblr.com
I just made a delicious breakfast burrito.
3 eggs scrambled, salsa, some 4-cheese mexican mix, a bit of ricotta cheese, a few chopped onions, and garlic/old bay/salt/pepper, all wrapped up in a burrito. It was so so so good. I would have taken a picture for you guys, but I ate it all before I managed to get PhotoBooth up. Whoops!
I’m only mildly obsessed with the idea.
Zak and I just spent an HOUR talking on the phone. I really like talking to him. It makes me feel like we’re closer together.
The last thing on this topic, and then I won't...
Lisa and Greg and I were hanging out around the kitchen table today after some softball and a dip in the pool (more on that later) and talking about things in years to come, like how I love the DC area and I’ve pretty much planned on being around here for ever and ever and always, amen. She was starting to say something about what happens when, etc., and followed it with “In a few...
OH MY GOD. I'LL STOP. JESUS CHRIST.
It’s once a year for two or three days. Chill out, guys. It’s not happening for a long time. I would let you know! Good God. Relax.
I’m playing softball with Greg and Lisa tomorrow!
There’s a girl pole dancing on the metro.
Facebook, stop trying to subtly tell me it’s time to get married. These ads for weddings and engagement rings are way overkill. The stuff is pretty, but I don’t need it yet. I’ll be sure to let you know when I do if you promise to cut that shit out for a while. Thanks.
I decided to curl my hair a bit ago just for...
I think it’s really cute. I burned my thumb though, and now it hurts :( Also, my hair won’t look like this after I’ve slept on it.
Lisa told Eli to ask his big sister to take him to his pool party tonight.
I have tiny little barely noticeable scars in the...
So some jackass thought it would be okay to grab...
We were all about a breath apart on a very overcrowded train, and it was one of those things that could be passable as just a wayward brush but it lingered too long. And then there was a little squeeze. And then I left a wayward backhanded slap on his face. I caused a scene. Honestly, I didn’t mind making such a fuss. He deserved to be shamed in front of an entire train full of people. I...
I just applied to a job at Piratez Tavern, and I filled out then entire form in Pirate English because I am that awesome.
I just went flip the lightswitch on,
realized I couldn’t reach it, and resigned myself to sitting here in the darkish.
Favorite comments from today:
Akinyi: “That really is a magnificent hickey.” on the way to lunch as the elevator doors were opening and the security guard and another lady were waiting. Ben: “Want some makeup for that monkey bite?” followed immediately with “Yes, I did just call you out on that fantastic hickey.” Hey Zak, they like your work. Wanna do some more?
I got my nose pierced :D
Lisa and Greg just got home and Lisa freaked out a little bit when she saw it. “Oh my god! That’s so cute!!” Greg’s indifferent about it— “Eh, not my cuppa tea.” Lisa: “What’s not your cup of tea, honey?” Greg: “Getting my nose pierced. I’m not gonna do it, so don’t ask me to.” Alyssa: “You know, that would...
Dear Marc, Thanks for being there for me and listening to me whine and be excited and freak out and everything. I really appreciate it. I’m sorry I’ve been so busy recently, but I’ll be back soon. You know I’m always here for you; don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. Alyssa
Day Seven (on day eight):
Robert. You know how you proposed to me a month after we started dating? Yeah. Don’t do that again. I know you think I’m the only girl in the world for you and you’ll do anything to prove that to me, but cut it out. You’re not gonna get anywhere with me. Thanks though, I suppose I’m flattered. Alyssa
Day Six (on day eight):
Hey Ben, Thanks for being awesome and not making me totally nervous for my nose piercing and giving me an ice pop afterward. I super appreciate it. Also, I like your beard. Alyssa
Day Five (on day eight):
Dear dreams, Thanks for being a whole lot better recently. My daytime really appreciates the amount of sleep I get now. Keep it up. Alyssa
Day Four (on day eight):
Broha, Behave yourself, please. I love you, I want you to be safe and out of trouble. You can make it through the next few years, I promise. Just do what you need to do and humor our parents. It’ll be over soon. Lyss
Day Three (on day eight):
M&D- You guys are douches. Show me some respect some times, and I might respect you in return. It’s not that hard. Alyssa
