My Obsessions This Week
2) Shopping on QVC. QVC is my goddam downfall. Everytime I switch that fucking channel on, I buy something. I have a love-hate relationship with buying items on QVC. I love it because of the things I've purchased, most of them are fabulous. I hate it because considering the shipping costs, I don't think shopping through my television is the most cost-effective way to shop. BUT IT'S SO CONVENIENT. Damn you, QVC (and your cheap-slutty-sister, HSN.)
3) Being unfriended on Facebook. In the last week, I've realized that two of my "friends" unfriended me on Facebook. Thinking about the friendships (one was someone who I knew in high school and the other was someone I used to work with) -- the only reason I can think that I was unfriended is because I am a liberal Democrat. Both of these "friends" are conservative, and one for sure, is a Republican (based on her support for Scott Brown in Wisconsin, where she lives). Neither of these people were particularly close to me, but I'm still offended by the unfriending. I mean, I consider myself an open-minded person, and therefore, I put up with posts on Facebook that I do not agree with. I believe in freedom of speech, even if it means some shithead is posting about their love of all things Mitt Romney (or Sarah Palin, or Newt, or whoever). I guess I shouldn't be surprised by some tight-ass Republican is so offended by my posts that they passive-agressively unfriended me, but I am. *sigh* Maybe now that I talked about it, I will be less offended.
4) Being motivated. Or I should say, my obession this week is my lack of motivation. I'm trying to push myself to muster up all the motivation I can to want to get more clients, but I'm feeling very lazy and am finding it so difficult to even WANT to do something. I am blaming this on the fact that it is summertime, and that I've been focusing on spending time with Daughter, but seriously. She starts school in two weeks and I best be getting my shit together in a MAJOR WAY otherwise, Husband is going to be riding my ass like you wouldn't believe.
So what are your obsessions this week?
