Reality Bites

No, this post isn't going to be about one of my all-time favorite '90s movies. (Which I might add, I was terribly disappointed that not one person knew the answer to my movie trivia quiz when I quoted Ethan Hawke from Reality Bites on my FnF Facebook page. Really, guys?) Let the bitchfest begin. 

Ethan Hawke is a foxxx though, isn't he? Sigh. An.y.way. I woke up this morning at 7:30 with a long to-do list to tackle. Want to know how many things I have crossed off that list? Zero. Zilch. Nada. Some of things are as simple as making a phone call, and for whatever reason I just cannot bring myself to do anything. I've watched the Today Show, a bad soap opera, two King of Queens episodes, and now I've got Everybody Loves Raymond reruns on the tube. Oh, and I believe Dr. Phil is on in a few minutes! Needless to say, I feel pathetic and depressed. Peter Boyle isn't even making me laugh right now, if that gives you an idea of how low I am feeling. 

I'm sure most of you are hard at work or off enjoying a fabulous, well-deserved holiday vacation. My boyfriend mentioned possibly taking a trip for New Year's, and I don't even feel up to it. I don't feel worthy of being whisked away anywhere

Geeze, I don't know what happened to me. I was feeling quite optimistic after writing this post about my future dream jobs last week. Anyone else feeling a bit down now that the holidays are over? Bah Humbug! Don't worry though, I'll pull myself out of it one way or another. The old Ellen WILL resurface again soon!


  1. I understand what you're living sooo much!
    Why don't you wait for the new year and then start doing what you have to. It's ok to take a fews days for yourself, even if it's just to watch tv! And i'm sure a trip with your boyfriend will help because when you go back home, you'll feel better!

  2. No worries. I've spent most of the day reading a shitty book and MEANING to update my website...haha. I always need a few days after the holidays to get back into real-work mode. My mom calls it "post-party depression."

    Take the NYE trip! I need to travel vicariously through you. I have no plans. I swear...if it comes down to watching Rockin' New Years Eve, I'm just going to go to bed at 9:00 and chalk it up to a loss.

  3. Yep....Post Holidays Blahs here too. I made NY Eve plans to volunteer at a media event benefiting Austin's Homeless.

    No drinking and helping others always kicks a crappy mood to the curb!( for me anyway)

  4. The blahs are ok every once and a while. Its good for you. Why wait for new years to make resolutions? Whatever your goal is-start right now. (Even if you just take a baby step towards your goal)

  5. Thanks for the support, guys! Yesterday was a much better and more productive day. I wish I could just chill out for a few days, but I'm seriously too broke to do any chilling of any kind. Eek, wish me luck!

    And Barbara, I love your NYE plans! Waking up tomorrow morning without guilt and a raging headache sounds awessssome. Think of me when I'm lying in bed, curled up in a ball wishing I could just.make.it.stop.
