I’ve seen a lot of Youtubers (and now: bloggers) do monthly “favorites” videos/posts where they list out things they really enjoyed during the month. And being entirely void of my own original ideas, and also wanting to post something so I don’t leave my lovely blog lonely for two days in a row, I thought I’d jump on that band wagon. Therefore, we have our July Favorites:
I recently found myself without having a wallet anymore. Whether it was stolen, or I drunkenly absent-mindedly left it on a table at a bar restaurant in Chicago this weekend… either way, I no longer have it. (It’s a pink Vera Bradley zippered piece o’ crap in case anyone sees the large, smelly and pilfering middle age man who has probably opened up many credit cards in my name by now carrying it around.) That included not only my license, my school ID, but my debt and credit cards as well.
I never realized how many things in life cost money until I suddenly found myself without a means to have it on my person. Gas? Need money. Food? Need money. New black pants for your glamorous new job as a server? Money. Need money? Surprise! You need a debit card to remove the money from the place that was supposed to be safeguarding it for you. And you know what you need to get a new (yet very, very limited in it’s powers) ATM card to access that money while you wait for your new debit card to come in the mail? An ID. But guess what you need to get a new ID? MONEY.

So yeah. Cash. Big, big fan.
(Reaaaallly had to resist the urge to add “15” to the end of “Pens” because I am actually 12 years old.)
This month I did many things that involved writing: finishing out my internship, moving all of my beloved crap from one apartment into storage, studying for my personal training exam, starting a new “Write everything down in your journal as a reminder, you disorganized f*ck” system, and of course, that lovely new job as a server.
Pencils are cheap. The lead (graphite?) smears, or the lead (graphite?!) breaks and you don’t have a sharpener. And if you don’t pay attention, it leaves the silver smear of defeat across the side of your hand that will eventually transfer onto your other documents, or any white item of clothing you have on. I’m not a big fan of pencils.
Pens are strong. Pens are mighty. Pens are permanent and wonderful. Pens are also basically like currency if you are in any sort of job that requires writing. Or if you are a waitress server, as I have learned this week. You learn to heavily rely on pens. I like pens. Pens. PEN15. (I’m sorry.)
3. Red Nail Polish
Very festive. Reds are a good look for the 4th of July, and Christmas in July. And just overall flattering color that goes with everything.
Nothing funny. Just a fan. I really love red nail polish. My favorite is “She’s Pampered” by Essie if you ever want to try something new.
