I’m a Stalker

Calm down. I’m not really a stalker. But I LOVE reading blogs and watching reality TV shows and just being all up in your business! Thank you social media for making me the equivalent of a voyeur outside your house hiding in the bushes.

There’s something so addictive about knowing what other people are up to around the world, isn’t there? And let’s be honest and say we can’t help but compare ourselves to each other. How many times have you heard somebody say, “watching reality TV makes me feel good about myself” i.e. thank God we’re not all train wrecks. But. I have a hard time watching KUWTK because they are so rich and so pretty and I get way too jealous and annoyed. There. I said it.

One of my therapists (yes, I said ONE OF my therapists) once said, “Being jealous is a great emotion. It’s a signal letting you know what you want in life”. Fine. But can I still hate the Kardashians for being so pretty and rich?

So naturally I love reading autobiographies. Anthony Kiedis’ ‘Scar Tissue’ is hands down one of the best I’ve read so far. I could not put that bad boy down. Just talking about it makes me want to read it again!!

Right now I’m reading Andre Agassi’s autobiography ‘Open’ and it’s a page-turner (Kindle button-pusher?) as well. Who knew he hated tennis so much? Fascinating.

“Whenever you read a good book, it’s like the author is right there in the room talking to you, which is why I don’t read good books” – Deep Thoughts

My night stand holds an odd stack of books. Most of them I haven’t finished. Or started. I have a really weird attention span when it comes to books. I have a really weird attention span, period. If I’m not immediately hooked I’m out. Do you have that problem? Are you still reading this blog? For example, and I’m about to say something that will probably upset you: I only made it through 2.5 books of the Twilight series. Come on Bella, grow a set already.

Cleanse update anyone? It’s going well and I feel amazing! We (all the peeps at my gym) posted our point total for last week and guess who’s in the lead so far? Hint: I hate losing. But then today I was like, dude, I’m ahead. I have some breathing room! I’m gonna eat chocolove. And so I did. One square. Okay two. Three. Shit. I should have never looked at the point roster.

Oh and I *may* have bought more flowers this weekend. Who could say no to this face??
