Being broke, it's easier said than done. Most things that make me happy require at least a small amount of money (Caramel Macchiatos, creative writing magazines, a really awesome new outfit, sushi, tattoos) and considering I currently have none until my next paycheck (getting paid bi-weekly sucks), I've had to get creative.
1. Watching 30 Rock. I can say with no shame that 30 Rock is my favorite show ever and that I am, in fact, Liz Lemon. Only slightly younger and less successful and WAY more of a crybaby when things really fall to shit. And I love, love, love that I can watch seasons 1-4 on Netflix. I watch the same episodes over and over again and they're still funny every single time.
2. Cuddling with Major Tom. Major Tom doesn't give a crap about how I'm feeling, really. When I got him, the girl said that he'd be really cuddly and clingy with me--this has not turned out to be the case. Instead, he is completely gay for Jay and I can only get him to stay near me if the conditions are just right. I have to be laying on the couch that Jay usually sits on, the blanket has to be off of the couch...everything has to be quiet, and he has to come over on his own. It's so rare. I've taken to giving him treats when he comes up to bed with me, which he has stopped doing since it hasn't been freezing cold. Such an opportunist kitty.
3. Writing. I hate to admit this, but I haven't been writing at all lately. I just don't have it in me. I should have had the first draft of my novel finished by now, but I have barely been able to pick up a pen for the past month. My college essay is due by the end of the month, and every time I look at it my mind just blanks. Not really great timing. Blurg.
That's all I've been able to come up with so far. I've also been paring down my wardrobe but that isn't really a "fun" thing.
What are YOUR ten things?
