Burn Before Reading: A Carly Allen Story

Quote of the Day: 08.16.17

It was only yesterday when my mother called me and told me to stop swearing so much on this website. How do I react to that? By putting a swear word in my quote of the day. But hey, at least I censored myself. I get that I'm supposed to be aware of my internet presence because I'm trying to be a competent member of the workforce, but it's so hardddddddd.

In other news, if anyone has any suggestions as to how to get better at centering my quotes on the letterboard, I'd be glad to hear them. Don't say anything ridiculous like, "Just eyeball it" because that's what I've been doing and I think it looks great until I see the picture on the blog. I was not gifted in the spacial awareness department.

The quote of the day comes from The Bold Type. I've talked about this show before and if you're not watching it, get on board. It's the bubblegum fun summer show you should be watching. Let's face it. The end of the world is imminent and you should spend it laughing.

I spent yesterday helping a friend move and it honestly made me want to become a minimalist nomad. How long did that nomadic feeling last? Maybe an hour. I spent the rest of the night last night decorating my apartment to make it look less abysmal. With things I already own, Mother, put the phone down. Let's face it, empty, bland walls are sad. (Yes, Elyse, that was directed at you. I know you still haven't decorated your new room.)

My apartment now has a hanging framed picture of Cate Blanchett in the kitchen, so yes, all the cool parties are happening at my apartment. Also, as someone who has a framed photo of Cate Blanchett in my kitchen, you'd think I'd be able to spell her last name correctly on the first try.
