Sticking to a resolution

I usually don't make New Year's resolutions but this year I decided I wanted to listen to more new music. Most of the music I listen to is a couple years old and I'm getting bored listening to the same songs over and over again. Now that I have Spotify there's no reason why I can't find some new music to listen to. The plan is to pick an album under new releases on Spotify and listen to it all the way through. Even if I'm not crazy about it at first I think it's only fair to listen to the entire album. I'm also open to suggestions. My only requirement is that the album came out in 2017. I'll update here on the blog every once in a while to keep track of my progress.

Good Morning!

It took me 20 minutes to get the shower curtain up so I could take a shower this morning. They're still working on the bathroom so it was taken down while Vlad Contractor worked (I will explain this in another post). It kept falling down and since I'm short it's not easy to get it back up. I'm pretty sure I pulled a muscle in my back trying. At one point it fell down on me while I was in the shower. You can laugh, Derek did when I told him. I think I've reached my swearing quota for the day.

Someone had a "fun" Saint Patrick's Day

Derek woke me up at 4 in the morning to tell me that there was a major leak in the bathroom. There was water coming down from the ceiling and it was getting everywhere. Just what you want to be dealing with at 4 in the morning. Derek rigged up a trash bag and a pot to get the water into the tub rather than all over the floor. I left a message for our landlord and called property management. I didn't think this was something that could wait.

We found out what the issue was fairly quickly. A woman who lives two floors above us got drunk on Saint Patrick's Day, clogged her sink and left the water running. She passed out in bed while the bathroom flooded. The unit above us has even worse water damage than we do. It was coming out through the electrical outlets in their bathroom. I didn't see any water coming out of the outlets but I won't be using them until they're checked out by an electrician.

I stay home and I still have to deal with the drunks on Saint Patrick's Day. I bet she has a hell of a hangover.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

In my younger years I would rarely stay home on Saint Patrick's Day. I even went to the parade in Southie one year. The highlight of the parade was seeing a drunk girl get tackled by two cops for running out onto the parade route and attempting to run away from the police. Now that I'm a bit older I'd rather stay home and avoid the crowded bars. The time change has left me feeling pretty tired too so I think I'll be celebrating from my bed tonight.

A Quick Review of Insidious 3

Scary enough to make you jump out of your chair and throw your crostini and brie in the air.
You've been warned.

One more thing crossed of the list

The wedding invitations have been ordered. We went with a Boston skyline design which I think is appropriate since we're getting married right in the city. There was a bit of sticker shock when I saw the final price for the invitations and ours are fairly simple. I shouldn't be surprised considering everything about a wedding is expensive.

I bought some new eye cream at Sephora today. The skin around my eyes has been so dry and itchy. Thanks winter! According to the saleswoman at Sephora this cream is very popular in Korea. According to my bank account, it is expensive.

I'm getting ready to head over to my friend Lil-Anne's place for a movie night. She stocked up on fancy snacks including brie and artichokes. I'm fine with just popcorn but I'm not going to say no to that.
