My Washer/Dryer Is Trying to Kill Me, Among Other Things

It took exactly two weeks, but I’m happy to be back in the world of employment! A start to chasing those dreams.

On a side note, my washer/dryer is trying to kill me.

I know I’m lucky  to have a washer/dryer (it’s an all-in-one machine, which is strange in itself to this suburbia kid!), but the machine promises “quiet” and “effective” and all I hear are confusing, loud banging noises and it takes hours. I  have to leave my clothes in for a slow dry if I want them to dry at all. Ah, the markings of being an apartment renter! This isn’t Kansas anymore, kid! (But also, I’m thankful for not having grown up in Kansas, not that there’s anything wrong with it per say, but- I’m losing focus).

In summary, the washer/dryer is freaking loud and I think it is trying to kill me.

So how about Tuesday?

Things got moving early (and by early, I mean a lot of people would side-eye me for that comment if they knew what time I awoke) around here. After hopping in the shower, I enjoyed breakfast.

After spending the morning running around town, and by town, I mean Hollywood, I came home ready for lunch! Thank goodness for meal prep! Quinoa, black beans, corn, broccoli, orange pepper, and soyaki! A side of hummus and chips complemented flavors nicely.

Dinner was out with a classmate of mine from college who just happened to move to LA about a month before me. I can’t tell you how great it was to see a friendly, familiar face, especially one who is facing the same challenges and positives as me! For food, I had a cup of yummy chicken tortilla soup and a side of brussels sprout and bacon mash. I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into with that dish, but it was just mashed potatoes with some chunks of sprouts and bacon. With cheese!

For a workout, I got things moving with a bicep, back, and core workout and finished with twenty minutes on the spin bike.

I’m feeling good! How ’bout you?
