If We Were Having Coffee – August 2017

Hi all! Ready for a coffee chat?Β 

Let’s get right to it because I’m so excited to chat with you! I’m having that new strawberry iced tea from Starbucks. Unsweetened. Light ice. I tried it and love it! I miss my chai tea latte but this is too good!


If we were having coffee I’d talk your ear off about grad school. Per usual.

If we were having coffee I’d talk about how I’m sad that my ballet class has ended. It’s weird but dancing for just makes sense to me! It’s so natural. I think I was born to dance! I have found another ballet class that starts up again soon but at the same time, shouldn’t I try something else?

If we were having coffee I’d tell you about the Champagne Ladies. They’re two older women who are season subscribers at Broadway in Chicago and sit right next to me. They always have champagne before musicals and have what I imagine are typical rich people problems. Mostly concerning dogs. They’re quite weird and stereotypical but at least they’re quiet and sit still. Although not great communicators. One tried to move my bag on the ground with her foot instead of asking me but my foot was blocking it. Then I got the armrest so she couldn’t have it. Payback lady.

If we were having coffee I’d tell you that season 5 of The Office is hilarious! I’m at the Cafe Disco episode and it’s not the worst idea Michael has ever had. (This one was written a few days in advance. Now I’m at the delivery episode!)Β 

If we were having coffee I’d tell you how I managed to get Friday off last week super last minute. I have a lot of vacation days and have only used four hours of it. There’s not too much work right now and I took the day off! It was quite fun and I’d like to do it again, but I’d probably request it further in advance and use it to work on my blog. Or homework in the future.

If we were having coffee I’d tell you how my mom told me to get a cute dog and go to dog parks to find a man. It’s really not a bad idea isn’t it?

If we were having coffee I’d tell you all about how I got a cold this week. I probably should have taken a day off work or gone home early but I powered through.

If we were having coffee I’d tell you that since I was sick I was also dramatic about it. I told a manager that I was probably dying and told him he could propose to his girlfriend at my funeral. He laughed so hard and my friend Erin pointed out that the girlfriend would definitely be surprised! πŸ˜‚

If we were having coffee I’d tell you how I accidentally made a really complicated Instagram theme. Like, every column has it’s own theme. First column is a “me” theme where I put my face in the picture. Then there is a column with a “word” theme where there is some writing somewhere in the picture. And here’s where it gets really crazy. There’s a “water” theme where I alternate between larger bodies of water (anywhere from pond sized and up) and a drink post. Is that even a theme? It literally sounds crazy doesn’t it? Why couldn’t I have done like a “blue” or “pink” theme??

If we were having coffee I’d tell you how I’m really feeling like I have both too much time and not enough. I have been sick so I have been slow to get work done but I have had a lot of time to do it. So basically I have more time and am still only doing the same amount I usually do. Since I haven’t been able to edit my new video I’m hoping to get that done this weekend and have it up next week!Β 

If we were having coffee I’d ask you all about your month of course! Let me know what you’d talk to me about if we were having coffee!!!Β 

Thanks for reading!

    • Omg it’s so stressful, I need to change it πŸ˜‚ haha I literally want a cafe disco. I proposed to change one of our huddle rooms at work to a cafe disco and one of my managers said yes but he’s like the equivalent to Dwight kinda in terms of authority soooo πŸ˜‚ I would have loved chatting to you about shark week so I could actually remember to watch out for it and sit down to see it next year!!

    • I don’t know either. I’m sure it’s almost run its course so I need a new theme. Can “fun” be a theme? πŸ˜‚ I literally can’t stop talking about grad school. And I would ask you sooooo many questions about your house!!!


  1. CafΓ© Disco was a funny episode, I love the Office. I’m re-watching from the beginning for the fifth or sixth time lol. That’s a funny thing your mom said, I’m dramatic too sometimes lol. If we were having coffee I would say I’m looking forward to having a break from grad school soon and I am looking forward to birthday pictures I’ll be taking in a couple of weeks. yummm strawberry iced tea sounds yummy.

  2. I’d like to be a champagne swilling, Broadway going socialite – I’d be more polite though. Yes, get the dog – even if you don’t find a man you’d still have a cute dog πŸ˜‚ I pulled the whole, ‘I’m dying’ thing on the BF and his response was – We are all dying. I mean, he wasn’t wrong…? I hope you feel better soon! These posts are so much fun β˜•

    • Hahahaha we can be Broadway socialites together!!! Hahaha I laughed so hard at your comment that my mom walked in to ask what was so funny. I would have a cute dog at least so I think you’re a genius. Hahahaha he’s not wrong but he could be a little more alarmed I think. I told the same manager I was dying when he asked how I was yesterday and then we were chatting when another coworker passed by. She asked how I was doing and I went “oh I’m pretty good, feeling much better” and his face was priceless! I do feel much better now, thank you! Just a slight cough left over. These posts are so fun to read and write for sure!! πŸ˜€

  3. Your mom sounds so funny! Also, dancing is such an amazing thing. Even if you aren’t the best dancer in the world, I always felt a sort of relief when I hit the floor! I hope you continue with your ballet, giving up dance was one of my biggest regrets!

    • She can be pretty funny when she wants to be!! Dance has been so fun and something I’ve always wanted to do. I might not do it just because I want to put school first and it’s quite late the night before school. But I plan to go back it after I finish! I hope you get to go back to it someday!

  4. Haha, I would love to meet the Champagne Ladies! What a riot. And yeah, maybe get a dog to find a man but I wouldn’t choose a cute, little one…that might attract women instead! πŸ˜›

  5. If we were having coffee …
    I’d commiserate with you about your ballet class ending because I know what it’s like not to have enough opportunities to dance. I’d also tell you that Pilates is an awesome addition to dance classes, and if there’s a good studio you could check that out! (Can you tell I’m a ballet and Pilates teacher? πŸ™‚
