Dressed as Cinderella going to prom, loses her glass slipper

JoeJoe is the Devil on my Shoulder.

1. I really need to learn not to drink 4 cups of coffee before I go to bed. I can fall asleep, but it’s a jittery sleep that makes me too tired the next day. But coffee with Brandana is much better than sleep anyways.

2. I watched 8 episodes of the O.C. this weekend since the end was ruined for me and I wanted to catch up before it was ruined even more. I also watched Once Upon a Prom on MTV. What’s with all these girls dressing like skanks now? I wanted to look like a princess:

Dressed as Cinderella going to prom, loses her glass slipper

See, I even lost my glass slipper running from the ball.

3. 7 more days of work, 1 more class then the “Summer of Val” (phrase stolen from JoeJoe who stole it from Seinfeld). And no, they still have not hired my replacement.

4. I’m watching the finale of American Idol. Shh, don’t ruin who wins. I drove home from school with the radio off so no one would ruin it.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    ’98?? you’re so old! mine was so much later in ’99.
    i like that picture. i wanted to pretend to be cinderella, but i was upset that my foot was covering the shoe on the steps.
    the shoe isn’t real glass though, it was plastic.
