Drinkable and More Than Remotely Pleasant

Exams are over and I just finished my haircut/massage/pedicure day (I’m surprisingly reliable in my planning, no?). It was glorious. When the massage girl asked me to pick between three different massage oil fragrances I picked the one that smelled like grapefruit and rosemary and as she was massaging me and the room filed with that glorious smell I realized why I liked it so much. It reminded me of a cocktail. And I got super inspired. So those of you who enjoy my cocktail artistry – I’m working on a grapefruit and rosemary concoction that I am hoping will rival the ginger martini. But that’s a lot of pressure. So let’s just say I hope it’s drinkable and more than remotely pleasant.

Jumping Through Hoops

I was always taught that if I didn’t have anything nice to say, I shouldn’t say anything at all. So if you’re wondering why I haven’t posted in so long, that’s a hint. That and I’ve been too busy to give even thirty seconds of thought to a blog post. I literally have not turned on my TV since I moved back home from my summer internship. Not once. I hope it still works.

I knew this one would be a doozy. I scheduled it this way so my final semester might be a little less intense. I hope that pans out.

This needs to be true.

It’s senior year and many of my school friends are graduating either this December or next May, with me. There’s a different energy this year. A feeling of wrapping up, moving on, anxiousness, impatience. And there’s a lot of talk about job offers. Lots of people are making decisions on offers that have been made by companies they have interned with. Especially for those graduating in December, now is the time to make those choices. It’s an exciting time. This is what everyone has worked so hard to achieve. This is the payoff. Walking off campus with a diploma and a job that will pay off all those student loans and stock the fridge with something nicer than ramen noodles.
