5 Things I've Learned This Week

Oh hi there. Happy Friday, eh? I'd like to take a moment and reflect on my past week. You know, soak it in, reminisce, see what I can learn from it. I mean, isn't that what life is all about? Learning and shit?

Right. Okay. So here we go. It's going to be mind-blowing, I promise.

Number One: As much as I love bringing out my inner Asian skills and putting them to use via my new at-home UV Gel machine (oh yes, you better believe I have one of these):

I have realized just how lazy I am in the aftermath, to which I spend the next week and a half with disgusting, chipped ombre nails that no one needs to see.

I think I need to either A) purchase the "Gel Removal" kit or B) stick to nail polish that can come off with the swipe of an acetone pad.

Number Two (Aren't you glad you've stuck around for this riveting information?): Google Maps has been my saving grace these days, especially being in a new city and never knowing where anything is, G-Maps has truly been my go-to. (Can't you tell how close we are since we're on a "G-Maps" name basis?)


I would like to suggest to the Google Gods that when the route calls for me to climb 628 stairs over a mountain just to get to the next street in order to catch a bus, please think of a different route. No one needs to be climbing that many stairs on her way to happy hour. 

Or ever, for that matter.

Which brings me to my next point.

Number Three: If you forget to wear deodorant and then decide to climb 628 stairs to catch a bus for happy hour, you will stink. Lesson learned.

Number Four: If there is a way to cut yourself with a potato peeler to which your finger will then bleed profusely to the point where you dramatically exclaim you may need stitches, I assure you I have figured out how to do just that. 

Number Five: Apparently everyone doesn't keep a giant bottle of wine on their nightstand, to which I quickly learned after posting this photo on Instagram and basically getting *crickets* in response. (cough)alcoholic(cough).

There you go.

Five mind-blowing pieces of information that have truly enhanced and enriched your life, I'm sure.
I really don't understand why I don't have the most popular blog in the world with the priceless words that flow from my fingertips.

And I guess that's my cue to exit.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

This weekend will interesting one for me.

I'm going to wait and see how it all goes before I divulge the details. 

You see what I did there? 

I created massive anticipation so that you will continue to hit the refresh button every 10 seconds come Monday morning. <--Genius.

Okay, seriously, I need to go. I think I'm delirious or something.

Hugs and kisses, homie.


P.S. Have you entered my giveaway yet? No? What?! Get over there and do it this instant!

  1. Hahah I have the same nail kit and I PICK it off like 1-2 days later. I just can't help myself. When I get them done, I definitely don't do that. Good, I'm glad I'm not the only one.

  2. i feel your pain, totally cut myself when getting my peel on with some carrots not too long ago. sheet stings like a mofo

  3. i usually destroy my fingers when around a peeler. also, those stairs look like hell. have a good weekend!

  4. Haha this post is hilarious!! I might not keep a wine bottle on my nightstand but I love the atmosphere + writing of this post :D (Btw I will be pressing refresh... too much curiosity to know) Although, I shall confess, I actually like climbing stairs...

  5. That's exactly why I never get nail color on even when I go to the salon. I can't even be bothered with acetone and it just looks crappy for-ever until it finally, finally all comes off.

  6. Haha that's why I don't paint my nails...EVER. It looks pretty for all of 1.5 hours until I get bored in one of my university lectures then I start picking at all of it! As for the potato peeler, I was a kitchen hand so I have been in many, many, many battles with that thing! Not ideal >.<

    ...And yes, I will definitely be that person hitting refresh every two seconds on Monday ;)

  7. The worst thing to cut your finger on? An open can of __________________. That freakin' HURTS like a mother.

    628 stairs? I would've turned around, went to the nearest liquor store to buy myself a bottle or two of wine and have my own happy hour at home.

  8. Have a great weekend :) Love you!

  9. I cut myself with any kind of peeler haha.

  10. I was so tempted to purchase one of those UV kits too but decided I'm too much of a lazy person to even start reading the manual and sitting there with my hand under a machine... I mean, I get tired of waiting for the nail polish to dry when I'm just brushing it on normally.

    I haven't been screwed by Google Maps by an experience like that (Thank goodness Vancouver doesn't have stairs and hills like that!) but the Maps have led me through some creepy allys, cutting through people's lawns, and of course, providing me with the wrong details too.

  11. Uhhh, I have over 6 cases of wine in my 500 sq. ft. apartment... And I live alone. So yeah, bottle on the nightstand? I feel you. Fear not the crickets... They creak for the best of us.

  12. I have a wine bottle on my nightstand. Actually have one right here next to my computer.

    I burned the CRAP out of my arm taking something out of the oven about an hour ago and it hurts like a mo-fo. Got a real nice blister forming.

    Oh well, such is life. I think I'll have another glass of wine. Or 5.

  13. Forgetting to wear deodorant then going on a long walk is the WORST EVER. I feel you.

  14. This whole post made me giggle, thank you!

  15. I have two empty wine glasses sitting on my bedside table. The only problem is that neither of them are full anymore.

  16. I have a giant bottle of booze on my bedside table and Justin has one too, just in case one of us gets a little keen on our own bottles. It's perfectly normal.

  17. LOL!
    I cut myself with the introduction of anything sharp.
    And the reason I don't have a bottle on my nightstand is because my bottles don't last long enough to leave the kitchen...

  18. What's wrong with wine on the nightstand? That seems like the perfect place for it to me.
