Life Lately

Yes, I'm still alive. 

How many times have I claimed to be back in the last, say, 6 weeks? Probably too many to even count. But I can explain. I have a disease where I agree to do way too many things at once and then have a panic attack when life gets uncontrollably busy. I'm sure most of you can relate to this.  Yes, I am aware that this is a self-inflicted problem that I could easily fix by saying 'no' more often, but I am what I am and I don't think this will change anytime soon. I also might be having an existential crisis because it finally hit me that I'm graduating from college in less than a year, but that will be addressed later in this post.

Despite all of this drama, I have really missed blogging. That, and it makes me really sad when the only people commenting on my posts are anonymous spam bots trying to sell me Brazilian diet pills.  

The only problem is, since my life is basically wake up, work, sleep, repeat, I really don't have anything interesting to blog about. So what to do when I don't know what else to blog about? I find a bunch of random GIFs that make me laugh, obviously.  Without further rambing, let's GIF it up for the current state of my life:

How I always feel at the start of a new semester 
(until I realize it's a new semester) 

Side note: I've been spending all of my free time binge-watching The Office on Netflix and I highly recommend you do the same.

How I'll feel at graduation:

Did I mention graduation is less than a year away?

When I try to get out of my apartment:

Yeah, that whole 'going out' thing doesn't happen very often.

When my Instagram photo gets more than 20 likes:

#ThrowbackThursday to when I was obsessed with America's Next Top Model. Oh Jade, how I admire your confidence.

When I go to football games and attempt to be spirited:

That awkward moment when you realize that you and Bill O'Reilly have something in common. Considering it's my last football season as a Gator, I should try a littler harder. 

When people ask me what I'm going to do after college:

If I had $1 for every time I was asked this question, I wouldn't even have to worry about getting a job. 

When I try and participate in class discussions:

This has actually happened to me and I'd rather not talk about it. It's scary how many things me and Phil from Modern Family have in common.

When I order at Starbucks:

If "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" wasn't already taken, it would be the title of my autobiography.

When someone says the word "job":

I'm sorry, what did you say? I couldn't hear you over my extreme levels of sass. 

When I try to create a distraction in class to avoid doing actual work:

This one is pretty random but I really wanted to include it. 

When my overachieving classmates tell me their elaborate post-grad plans:


So how crazy-busy is your life right now? Please tell me so we can all wallow in self-pity together. Also, stay tuned because great things are coming! Really, I'm not making this up. I know I've said that before and nothing happened but I mean it this time. I'm talking about an amazing giveaway and a complete redesign/rebranding and probably lots more GIFs. Yep, fun stuff!

Hope you're having a fabulous weekend!

  1. Welcome back! Thanks for making me smile with this post! Sometimes, we just need a little motivation and affirmation...Your blog is fabulous and I love reading your posts. Keep up the great work. Good things will come.

  2. I've been on that extended blogging break with you. I'm hoping to keep it up this time. And don't worry about what you're doing after college. I'm 2 years out and still have no idea what I want to do with my life. We're young, there's time!

  3. Sydney I love you and your sass, we are kindred spirits I'm sure. I feel is so ridiculous nowadays. Just stay strong and continue the antics and GIFs, and someday you will be recognized for your apparent awesomeness. Also since we've only talked about teaming up for something about 9 bajillion times now, I'll email you. Get excited, gator girl.


  4. This is absolute perfection. And it's also highly accurate. Your GIF use made this post so hilarious!! <3
