hey when someone says “CHICAGO”, what song do you think of?
11 job applications today i was walking the dog today and this poor old woman stopped to talk to me about how someone pooped on her front lawn. she was pretty upset. my eyes burn whenever i close them i smell like coconuts. im ok with that. so tired, i didnt even do anything worth being tired about.
do you ever have one of those moments where you said something and right after you wish you had been drunk when you said that so you would have some sort of excuse as to why you just said what you said. i just did.
i need to go look under cushions to find $1.07 for some horchata

Day 15 – Your dreams
i want to own a bakery. a small one. i’m not into cupcakes or fondant cakes. i’m thinking more along the lines of tarts and breads, croissants, danish maybe. i hate sharing stuff like this. i never know what to tell people. i don’t have a business plan sorted out or anything so how legit is this dream of mine if i really haven’t put any effort into making it real. its...
Day 14 – What you wore today
portillo’s for dinner
Day 13 – This week
besides being in severe pain for the past three days, this week has been pretty decent. i feel like i got shit done and because i got said ‘shit’ done i now feel like i kind of know where i’m heading. um i ate acorn squash like 3 times this week. cut that thing in half, salt+pepper, maple syrup and butter. put it in the microwave for 20 minutes. pretty good. you could probably...
Day 12 – What’s in your bag
i’m pretty boring date book thing with some important mail shoved in it i keep the books im reading in there. right now it “A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainrian” by Marina Lewycka and “Always Looking Up” by Michael J. Fox burts bee’s lip balm my ipod wallet/checkbook (i’ve only used 2 checks, to pay for the two tickets i’ve gotten) ...
i’m going for a walk. hopefully no one will beat the crap out of me.
i can’t afford afford college application fee’s. should i really be applying?
somedays i just wish people knew me. that way they would know that i get bummed out, but i have this awesome ability to pull myself out of it. just bare with me. i’m a buzzkill, i have a grade-a chemical imbalance that has yet to be fixed. i’ve been medicated but nothing really worked. i’ve learned a lot from it though and i would like to believe that somehow it’s made me a...
Day 10 – What you wore today
its your lucky day, i actually put effort into what i wore today. well you see i’m wearing lovely dark wash skinny jeans from forever 21. a lovely yellow striped scoop neck shirt from old navy with a army-ish jacket over it. yea. i really suck with words. it looks good and it was pretty cheap. like probably $30 for the entire thing, including my underwear. not my bra. bra’s are...
Day 09 – Your beliefs
as cheesy as it sounds, i believe that one day everything will be wonderful and all the bad stuff will have been worth it.
seriously. i wait all morning to talk to you and you want to talk about this girl you got with. thanks.
Day 08 – A moment
i always remember the little moments. like when i was little and my grandpa and i would have breakfast together. i would wake up early and go outside. straight back and 4 steps to the left, i would climb the grapefruit tree and picked one out. i would carry the grapefruit through the arizona room, past the garage door and into the kitchen. my grandpa was prepared and had the knife out to cut in...
i’m tired. who wants to go loiter at a 7-11 with me?
Day 07 – Your best friend
i unno. theres really only one friend that i talk to on a daily basis, but there are a few people that i don’t see often enough. when i do see them though, its like this giant sigh of relief, like being home after being away for a long time.
this week has been long and i didn’t realize what a train-wreck it was until today. it’s ok though because i got through it. whatever happens just happens. i watched ‘beach blanket bingo’. got a good slice of pizza and afterwards went for some late night tennis. late night tennis is the best tennis. well, naked tennis, but i don’t have the cajones for that. then...
Day 06 – Your day
welll yesterday was productive. i woke took a shower right away. got dressed, went outside with the pup. read middlesex til my eyes bled (good book). took a break made some peanut butter cookies (bc i dont like peanut butter, so i wont eat them. duh.) went back outside and read more. it got super windy and i wished (?) i had a snuggie. then i ate dinner. then i went for a walk then i started to...
illinois, thank you for the bon-fire weather the past two nights.
Day 04 – What you ate today

So, if people refer to coffee as an “afternoon...

Day 01 – Introduce yourself
hey. i’m emily. i’m pretty funny. we probably have something in common. i like mexican food, watching Seinfeld, reading, listening to music, watching cubs games, cooking, and baking. i used to go to culinary school, but shits expensive so i’m learning on my own and through experience. i know this is pretty vague, feel free to ask me stuff
