Nerve Soup

Posted on Updated on


Anyone else having a “one of those days” kind of weeks? Um, yeah. Over here, it’s been a range of death in the family, stressful communication issues (thanks, Mercury retrograde), and even a salmonella waiting game.

    WORD. It has been a nightmarish week for me and pretty much all my friends this week. (one friend’s laptop died (which included her dissertation); one friend threw up on a bus/got pick-pocketed (simultaneously); and i have been generally anxious about an upcoming trip and haven’t been sleeping). freaking mercury! ::shakes fist::

    to better times! and soup!

    […] Good morning and happy Saturday! Anything good going on this weekend? I’m spending some time with family and planning to do a lot more studying. I am very thankful to no longer be in this kind of mood—and not to have gotten salmonella from freaking tea. […]
