Thursday was a rough day. It was rough in the sense that it was completely pathetically a mess. The morning started off with me spilling my smoothie all over me as I was running out the door for work. It got all over my phone, keys, shoes and sweater forcing me to change and causing me to be late to work. I'd be lying if I said my language was entirely pure throughout the incident. Thus started the day of #firstworldproblems.

My roommate Annie and I then continued throughout the day informing each other of our first world problems. The beauty of it was that we could complain about our inconveniences throughout the day but all the while making fun of how pathetically fine we are.

Here are some of the #firstworldproblems that ensued:

  • My spilt smoothie got into my headphone jack on my phone
  • Had to sit on the floor before class because there were no benches
  • My granola bar is too crunchy
  • Having a huge diet coke and having to use the bathroom every 5 seconds
  • All I want is to instagram a picture but the app keeps closing
  • I'm so hungry but I don't want to eat anything that I have
  • I'm hungry but I have dinner plans later
  • My nails are too long but I have to wait until I get home to trim them
  • The weather is too unpredictable and I never know what to wear
  • I don't have anything to do at work so I'm just on pinterest
  • I think I have to find 2 different dresses for graduation because it's a 2 day event
  • I don't like my outfit but I don't have time to change
  • I liked a Linkin Park song on Pandora and now that's all it ever plays

I know everyone else has their own #fwp, please share them because they're hilarious.

be a duck

A couple years ago I got a rubber ducky during a lesson. I wish I could remember where it was and who was teaching but I have always remembered the thought that went along with that little ducky...

So I've kept that little rubber duck over the years and through many moves to remind to keep paddling like hell. Little did we know how fierce ducks are! Paddle ducky paddle! It'll get easier eventually right? #wishfulthinking
