It’s funny, when I think about this exact time last year. Things were so different. I never would have thought that things could change so much in only a year. I wonder what next October will be like.

I’ll be rocking my new shirt to work tomorrow. Go Giants! #sfgiants

When I got laid off, I thought that my living arrangements would be temporary therefore I didn’t really decorate my room. Fast forward to almost 3.5 years and I’m still living with my mom after two years of funemployment and working at my current job for 1.5 years.

I do have a job now that helps me take care of rent, bills and student loans. While “getting a higher salary” is something that I’m working on, I decided that I should at least make my room feel like me.

I saw this bulletin board at Rue La La and I knew that I had to have it. The phrases on this board describe my goals in life and the type of person that I aspire to be.

So now what will I do with my FitBit Zip? Perhaps what I should really focus on is getting my booty off of the couch. I can’t remember the last time that I worked out.

Totally off topic but I guess I need to read Gone Girl so I can go watch the movie.

I’ve been having a massive chai tea latte craving but I also don’t want it to be a ton of calories and fake ingredients. I saw the Oregon brand at Safeway last night and it seems to be decent in ingredients although it does contain sucralose. I ran into Trader Joe’s and saw this mix. I didn’t read the ingredients until I got home. 170 calories a serving (yikes!) and the some of the ingredients I can’t even pronounce which is really disappointing. I think this may be one product I leave in my work’s break room.

Does anyone have any chai tea latte recipes they can share or know of a brand that’s sells it without too many fake ingredients?
