10 Best // Ways To Avoid People

5.22.2014

well it's memorial day weekend here in the states, so you probably won't just be staying in.  i am, at least for friday and saturday, with john and hawkeye, because the sunday/monday family party time is just a little too much family for me and i need to mentally prepare myself.  if you're taking a day or two this weekend for yourself, might i suggest:

netflix: netflix is always on this list.  i'm currently watching house.  i've never seen it before, but i'm really liking it!  i heard it gets too crazy at the end but that's a long ways away.  what are you watching?  ever seen house?  (i'm only 7 episodes in, don't spoil it for me!)

read: catch up on your awareness and slightly restore your faith in humanity.  look at all that purple!!

bake: mmm peanut butter.  try thumbprint cookies.  or be like me and add chocolate to the mix.

challenge yourself: is it just me, or do you accomplish more when there's a challenge and a prize? go on, try it, and get all those books checked off your never-tackled 'to be read' list. 

look up: your search keywords.  you're in for a laugh, i'm sure.

make: gifts in a jar.  you know, if you're actually seeing anyone you like at those memorial day parties.

learn: what your phobia is classified as.  what's your biggest fear?  mine is lawn gnomes.  i have no idea what category that falls under.  i'm a conundrum.  but, lawn gnomes come alive in the dark and kill you in your sleep, so maybe they deserve a category all their own.

more avoidance: need more ideas?  try aukele's list.

and if all that falls, go win $200 to lululemon.  if you're reading this, you probably already have an entry or two.  and then....

go celebrate 'merica.  happy weekend!

  5. I have a fear of the dark. I wish I had fun plans this weekend. I guess I'm building a deck rail. I think it can't possibly turn out worse than my ex's rail.

  6. I want to avoid people this weekend but apparently my manager had other ideas because I'm working doubles all weekend (including Monday) long. -.- I'm definitely side eyeing her when I get to work later.

  7. I always have to mentally prepare for lots of family time too, I prefer quiet and comfortable but that's never how family gatherings are.

  8. I'm a Netflix addict, I always love to stay home and watch revenge. I will sit there and watch episodes back to back. Love the idea of gifts in a jar! Have you seen the cupcakes in a mason jar? Yummy!
