Jumping the Gun

You need no introduction. It's Wednesday. It's Humpday. It's time for Humpday Confessions with Kathy. I confess...

Vodka and Soda

...I'm feeling stupidly giddy about the new dude in my life. Like, stupidly. It's been such a short time and I'm probably doing the absolute worst thing possible by putting this in writing, out here on the blog, but whatever. I'm smiling like an idiot all day every day. I'm an idiot. Check in with me in a month and smack me in the face if this goes south.
All the happies.
...Yesterday I found myself in traffic directly behind the person who broke my heart treated my heart like a chew toy for too many years. We haven't spoken in nearly a year and I don't anticipate that changing, but part of me was tempted to roll down the window and blast "Problem" as I sped past him with deuces up. Because I'm totally well-adjusted and mature.

...I have had absolutely awful time management skills the past couple weeks. I mean, it certainly doesn't help that the to-dos keep piling on and the time commitments keep growing longer and there's that whole I-want-to-spend-every-minute-with-you phase of new romanticals {gimme a break, I haven't fluttered like this in quite some time — let me just have this} and when you smoosh that all together and add in deadlines and promises and goal lists and apartment hunting and half marathon training, you get a giant mess of crap and a lady {that's me} who can't remember when she's supposed to be where and what she's supposed to be doing. I'm hoping to just kind of ride it out through the end of the summer and look back on the wreckage then. Maybe.

...I am absolutely BEYOND myself with anticipation for the relaunch of Feather Magazine. I was an editor for this fantastic online mag in the past before stepping aside when life got to be a little too crazy and the time was just right for me to pass the torch. {Is anyone sensing a biting-off-more-than-she-can-chew theme here? Whatever.} Then the mag took a brief hiatus, but we're so happy to announce that WE ARE COMING BACK! Our fearless leader, Editor-in-Chief/Founder Brianti has been painstakingly working to put the wheels in motion and we're back on August 11, baby! Okay, this isn't much of a confession — except the part where I'm damn near pee-my-pants happy about it and barely containing my urge to show you guys some of the awesome stories my girls are working on for the first issue. Sign up here to receive updates about the mag's relaunch and follow the editors' blog {I write there!} here for some tasty bits to hold you until the official launch. Eeeeep!

Your turn bbz, spill your weekly confessions and link up with Kathy because anything else would just be irresponsible today.

  1. I'm so so so happy for you. If it goes south, no slap to the face because you still deserve to feel what you feel right now! Love that! As for number two ugh. Sucks big time when that happens... you gave me the perfect song choice if it ever happens to me though! Perfect!

  2. You should totally feel giddy about good things in your life and not worry about jinxing it!! I'm so happy to not live near ex's - because no matter how much time passes - you still get this feeling...I think you know what I'm talking about - that nausea they bring you lol!

  6. I'm happy you're all giddy about this mystery man! When I was dating around, I was always afraid to write about my dates because I didn't want to jinx myself.. but it all worked out :)

    I'll check out that magazine!

  7. With the comment about the ex, I thought it was going to lead into "I wanted to rear-end him, but was an adult instead."

  8. So happy that you have a new fella that makes you super giddy!

  9. If you could stop doubting that your romantical is going to go south, that'd be great (she said in the Office Space voice). Also, I immediately checked my phone to make sure I didn't get an "I ran into my ex, then backed up and ran over him again" text from you yesterday. I guess that means he's safe. Ugh. But overall YAY FOR AWESOME HAPPY THINGS !

  11. Ughhhh talk about dumb luck. It would have taken everything in me not to slam into that rear bumper..... Yeah I am so excited I made your required reading list! I am very honored to be in such great company!

  12. New romanticals make my heart happy! So glad it's going so well right now! And regarding the time management, just take it one thing at a time- it'll work out!

  13. Youre much more adult than me because I totally would have done that to an ex LOL

  14. I saw a person who i dated and he treated me like poo for the first time since he dumped me. 2 weekends ago, it has been a year since I've seen him and he's also engaged now. He was literally the first person I saw when I walked in to the bar. And the worst part is all I could do was look at him with a deer in the headlight look and duck off to the other side of the bar. Had I been prepared I could have had a quip ready. I was not prepared.

  16. As far as the guy goes, when you know, you know! Nothing to be feeling awkward about. And the loser guy, when you know, you know there too. But it still sucks for sure.

  17. Yay new guy!!!! Also don't exes know that they are supposed to disappear from the face of the planet forever? I mean really, it's for their own safety.

  18. AHahah I wish you had played problem when you went past that guy! Sometimes just imagining it is good enough, though, lol.

  19. I'm with you on the busy factor. I see nothing wrong with blasting that song in passing. Ex's are douches!
