My Week in GIFs

I opened up the draft to this post and all I saw was the text:

"That horrible Cups song."

I think this was in response to Amanda's Wednesday confession about how she despises Katy Perry's Dark Horse song (yep, me too) and how I wanted to mention how Cups was also horrible. I love Anna Kendrick but that song....

Anna, show them how I feel:

If we're still friends now that I've got my feelings on the table, you can stick around to see what nonsense I got into this week! Tally, ho! 


So. Many. Meetings. I get that "Meeting Monday" is a cute alliteration and all, but it ends up like this stare-off:


If you didn't stop by on Thursday, you missed the recap of my very first ski adventure. If you missed it, this is probably you after clicking that link:


After the ski trip Tuesday I woke up feeling like I couldn't move anything anywhere. Catch the next train because this one isn't leaving the station any time soon. No bruises though, we can chalk this up as a win! 

Bonus Wednesday thing - Helene made my year day by confessing that she's crushing on my blog lately. We even made it snap chat official this week, so I feel some extra pressure to humor any new followers that are popping in because of her endorsement. 


I got relieved from a work project that I'd asked to join in 2013. They expected me to be upset when they broke the news that they were going another direction. And to their credit yes, a few months ago this news would have left me like this:

But Thursday made it different. Thursday I was happy, optimistic and really excited for the person who took my place. It also means that I've got a little more freedom *fingers crossed* to start thinking about a career path.


Are you single or do you live alone like I do? Do the weekends get lonely? So many of you mentioned you loved the starfish position, here's some other things you can do if you live alone. 

Have fun this weekend, take care and back that azz up with this easy Friday listen:

Amanda Elizabeth - Meet @ the Barre said...

Yeah for Helene shoutout she is so sweet. There is some pressure to be funny right? Well it's a good thing it just comes so naturally ;-)

jessica nicole said...

I love all of your gifs! haha. I don't know if it's my short attention span or what but it certainly keeps me entertained

And it's good that you were able to be cool with getting released from that project. I've had some situations like that where I know that I would have had a completely different reaction had it happened at another time.

Good luck on focusing on you career path! And have a great weekend :)

I'm a new follower on BlogLovin by the way!

Aw, that's so nice of Helene! She's so sweet. Kind of makes me want to put more thought into my blog posts, lol.

That first GIF is fantastic. I may have stared at it for a while.

Good luck with thoughts about your career path!

You use so many cat gifs that I think you need a cat. Bauer will snapchat it. And I hate that damn Cups song. And I hated that movie, oops, I know, blogger blasphemy!

Lisa said...

Hey Jessi! Omg, you had me laughing girl! The Monday morning meeting stares, that's hilarious! Have a lovely weekend my dear! xx ;)

Anna said...

There was a time when I switched to three different radio stations and all three were playing the Cups song. Noooooooo! I love pitch perfect and anna kenrdrick but that song, just no!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

Oh my gosh I haaaate that stupid Cups song, too! Ugh. It's awful!
