Just when you thought 2 holiday parties were enough, my job comes through with holiday party #3 FTW! And for my loyal 2-3 readers, yes, this is the last holiday party post…until next year.
So a week after the festive red carpet holiday party our internal department holiday party was scheduled. This one was especially exciting for me because the itinerary was comparable to my ideal first date; mimosa’s with a secret santa gift exchange, Ubers to The Broad, and lunch (with more drinks) at Blue Cow Kitchen. Seriously, if a guy planned that date for me I would probably marry him or at the very least, go out with him again.
Is it just me or do weekends seem like extensions of the work week rather than much needed time to relax? This weekend was the first weekend I realized my job, well this project, has taken over my life. I haven’t been able to do normal stuff like: go to the bank, get gas, do laundry, or shower. The project has gotten so crazy that we were all asked to work through the weekend. Which isn’t a terrible thing since all of us are super excited to be a part of something so great. I also had no life altering plans this weekend so working through the weekend isn’t the worst thing in the world for me. I did however plan on attending a particular ugly sweater party. And after having one too many drinks at the party, my roommate and I ended up meeting up with some of her friends. I am told I made an awkward expression towards them by being engaged in a heated debate over Justin Bieber vs Byrson Tiller. My roommate said I kept repeating; “Byrson Tiller has ‘staying power'”. For the record I may have heard like 2 of Byrson’s songs but drunk Kiana does not f*ck with Bieber that much that she will fiercely defend any of his competitors. I don’t care how good his new album is.
