January 2016 Recap

1 Feb

Its hard to believe January is already gone. Not a lot was really accomplished this month. Too many sads and anxieties and then there was the blizzard that left me stuck in the house for almost an entire 7 days.

– Bought some new nail polish for the first time in a couple of years.
– Got into the habit of writing in my journal, almost daily.
– Caught a cold of some sort.. which is still slightly lingering.
– Saw a double rainbow.
– Tried a new restaurant – Iron Rooster.
– Snow. A lot of it. Buried.
– Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies.
– Shoveled Snow for the first time in my life.
– Registered for classes, but I still can’t decide if its a good idea.
– Played a lot of WoW.
– Watched a lot of Degrassi.
– Started the show “Pretty Little Liars”.
– Read the book, “Hyperbole and a Half”.
– Got a brand new box of crayons.
– Sour Gummy Hearts.
– Listened to this song a million times.

6/365: Beckoning Cat

6 – Beckoning Cat

So the last few days I’ve been sick with a combination of a head cold and a stomach virus. I don’t really know what is going on with my body right now, but its really strange. Today it seems like its getting better – stomach virus symptoms seem to be over with. I was able to eat and not immediately regret it. Hooray progress!

I washed my hair for the first time this year. It looks the same, but maybe a bit greener. Its hard to say since its dark right now and my house has terrible lighting (no overhead lighting at all).

I think tomorrow I want to go to Ulta. There’s some Hello Kitty OPI nail polish I want to check out. I am a complete sucker for anything Hello Kitty, if you haven’t noticed. I need a new black and a couple of the pink shades looked really cute, but I would like to see in person. I want to paint my nails right now because my nails are a dingy shade of blue because of my hair and it looks really gross. Since I washed my hair today, the dye shouldn’t really rub off anymore, at least not as bad as its been. I am glad I have my hair back, though. I feel like myself with unicorn hair.

I won’t post here every day with my daily photo, just when I feel like it. I have been posting my daily photo on instagram (username: panduh), though, but I don’t know if I will keep up with that habit. I will keep taking my photos, but I will probably get lazy about posting them over time.. because that’s me.

2/365 – Messy Desk, Messy Life

2 Jan

2 - Messy Desk, Messy Life

My desk is a mess and so is my life. I really need to get it together, but its just so overwhelming when you have such a mess. I don’t know where to even begin. Can’t make heads or tails of anything.

I took down my christmas tree and decorations today. It made me sad. I really enjoy the twinkle lights and my festive decorations, but I guess it wouldn’t be so special if I had them up year-round. So, in a box they go until the end of November. Still not sure how I am going to store my tree. Its disassembled, but I don’t have a box large or long enough to put it in.

Other than packing things away, my body seems to be on the fence about getting a cold. I’ve had this almost sore throat for days now. My body needs to make up its mind. I also tried a new Pho place that just opened nearby today. It was pretty great, but the service kinda sucked. Having to ask for a refill on my water is one of my pet peeves, for sure.

Day 1 – Self Portrait

I’m not going to do a 2015 recap this year. I just kinda want to leave it all behind and focus on now. I did finish my 365 project, but I will not bother posting the rest of that either. You can see those photos here, if you want.

2015 wasn’t the best year for me, it was pretty much the worst. There were some good things that happened through out the year, but I spent so much time in a fog that its hard to remember anything. So, I’m gonna try really hard to make 2016 better, but I’m not making any promises to myself. I am bad at resolutions, goals, and promises. Maybe I should create a goal to become better at goals? Perhaps.

Today wasn’t the best day to start off the new year, either, if I am going to be completely honest. There were definitely tears shed, but it ended up being an Ok day after I dried my face and went and had some delicious food & beer.

Here’s to 2016.

November recap (Belated)

17 Dec

November came and went and now I am posting this a bit late because of raisins.

304 - Sufjan Stevens

– Went and saw Sufjan Stevens at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. It was nice to go to a concert that had seats for once – made me feel old to think this. I wasn’t really a fan of Sufjan until I went to this show. My friend had an extra ticket so I went. I’m not going to lie, I cried during the first song. There was a screen that was playing home movies and for whatever reason those make me cry, especially played with sad music.


– Went to see Craig Finn play at the Ottobar. It was a pretty good show. I’ve become such a fan of his stuff this year. I mean, I’ve always liked him and The Hold Steady, but this year I’ve truly gotten into his music. Its good stuff.

– Went to a Yelp party that was 1920’s themed and had a mental breakdown in the bathroom. I had to call James to come back and get me almost immediately. :(

– Celebrated six years in Baltimore. James got me roses and we went out for pizza and mini golf. Then the next day we went out for a nice dinner and a movie (saw the peanuts movie!).

– Bought a lot of records – Used & new.

– Ate pecan waffles at the Waffle House.


– Went and saw The Motion City Soundtrack & The Wonder Years at Ram’s Head Live.

– Drove down to SC for Thanksgiving. I surprised my family. I told them I wasn’t going to come because I had car trouble, which was true, but I got it fixed the day before.

– Saw the Peanuts movie for the second time with Billy.

– Finally got my white christmas tree!

– Deviled Eggs.
