What people say vs. what they mean

Since becoming a real adult – aka moving out of my parents house. I’ve learned a lot about life, specifically about the little white lies they tell about their lives to make it seem like they are doing more than they actually are (I do it all the time)

Por ejemplo

What I say to my family when they ask what I’m doing in New York – ” I’m working with a promotions company and am currently on a six month assignment”

What I actually do –  “For four hours a day 3-5 times a week I pass out stickers to children and watch sports”

  • I do freelance work
  • I’ve worked on two projects in the last three months and therefore consider myself a freelance artists
  • I have like noooo money
  • I have enough money to go out Thursday, Friday and Saturday but can’t participate in Sunday funday and can only buy one new shirt when we go shopping
  • I totally hate my job, I’m looking for a new one
  • I hate my job but I don’t hate my salary, I’m just going to keep complaining about it and talk about how I have no time to find a new one
  • I would totally hang out but I’m so busy!
  • I have like three new episodes of shahs of sunset on my DVR and two new episodes of Love & Hip-Hop on-demand soooo that’s kind of more important
  • I just have no energy, I’m so drained

Review: Watching TV

So I’ll be moving in a few weeks and I’m trying to explain to my parents the importance of having a TV in my room.

Watching TV for me is like therapy. For two hours a day, six when I was unemployed, I was transported to another land. A land of Kardashians, Mob Wives and Duck Dynasty. I forgot my troubles of being a 22 year old unemployed college graduate who was in $30,000 worth of debt and no way to pay it back (thanks so mom and dad it’s now down to $27,000, yay!). When you’re watching TV time stands still and it moves forward, your mind is still but it’s also running at 1,000 miles an hour. There’s nothing like snuggling up in bed, fixing yourself a delicious snack, settling into a neck pillow and having a four hour Law and Order: SVU marathon for an entire afternoon.
