Random Musings

My social life is off to a bit of a slow start. Not that I haven't done stuff or met people( I've done both, obv.) I just haven't done as much as I would've liked. I like to blame it on the fact that my friends tend to be a bit lazy compared to me (still love you guys, mean it!). Honestly though, if it were up to me, I would have the entire summer booked up and all activities slotted in my Google calendar. Le sigh. 

Normally, here in DC when I meet people for the first time I have a conversation that goes like this: 
     Them: "Where are you from?"
     Me: "South Carolina" 
    Them[genuine surprise] "What! You don't sound like it!" 
     Me: So I've been told. 
I usually attribute it to the fact that my parents aren't from the South so we speak proper English in my house (except for my mom's strange midwestern dialect, but you know.) But today, a guy recognized my repressed Southern accent! He's from New Yawk though, so I guess it was easy for him to pick out. I accidentally said "y'all" to my boss today. I gotta work on that. 

The suburbs make me want to kill myself. (Not really, it's a figure of speech, sheesh.) But seriously, what do these people do for fun? Oh wait, have lots of kids. Except that doesn't sound like fun at all. Dear God I'd probably go crazy if I was stuck here.  I mean, there are shops and restaurants and stuff, but you can only go to Reston Town Center so many times. 

I got my Starbucks Gold Card in the mail today. It's official- I'm one of the cool kids now. So of course, I had to celebrate by going to Starbucks. I had my favorite peppermint mocha and sat and watched the rain. I also watched a brat knock over a rich lady's tea- it missed her Vuitton within inches. It was fabulous

This is Gabi the Yorkie, the dog of one of my landlord's friends. This sweet little thing came to hang out with me today. It's so sad not having my own puppy around, but she really makes up for it when she visits. If I pet her and then stop paying attention to her for a while, she'll start dancing around to get me to look at her again. (Sounds like some people I know.) So cute : )
