Just Jess.

a 20-something Boston girl recently transplanted in NYC; approaching life with sarcasm, humor and quite a bit of laughter. Running, fluent in movie quotes and trying to figure it all out. Oh, and I'm usually pretty heavily caffeinated.

Earlier today, I tried posting this.

A bajillion times later, it never worked.

But regardless, I went running by the east river and also (I’m pretty sure) lost all of my fantasy matchups.

It was the most perfect weather for a run, followed by a delish Bloody Mary.

It’s been a really good day.
I tried to take a coffee-date-selfie type photo to spread my happiness from it being Friday and all (and last night’s debauchery that resulted in a barely-there victory), but I look like a hot disgusting/sleepy mess, and, technically, I don’t think I actually got appropriately dressed for work (psyche - I work in advertising, everything is appropriate). 
Since these two are way better looking and this gif makes me want to dance in my seat, I decided to use this instead.
So, congrats to all, we have made it to Friday! My morning has kicked off in a way that could not have been expected, and in the best way possible. Great news on all fronts and I got free fruit at breakfast! I mean, how else could this day get any better?
TGIF, Tumblr!

Attention, attention! My hand is missing.
It’s lost under a bag of ice. Last night, in flag football, a beast-woman decided to bounce me right off of her and take my pinky with her. Last night it bothered me a little bit, but today it’s a wee-bit swollen and I can’t straighten it. Hooray!

Q
How many miles do you usually run? And coffee, iced tea, or iced coffee?
A

Oh, hi! Sorry I didn’t get to this sooner - it’s been a bit of a crazy week, after the long weekend.

Miles run: typically in offseason (now), I’m hitting about 9-12 miles/week. Since my knee(s) are SO bad, I don’t like to piss them off too much because, well, I need to walk and NYC isn’t the city to be on crutches. 

Caffeinated drink: iced coffee all day. Coffee, in general, I love; iced tea seems like a waste of liquid to me; iced coffee is what I live for.

Thanks for stopping by, San Diego (I know that’s not your name or your location, but it just rolls off the tongue and I can’t help myself from quoting Anchorman)!

for today’s bundle of emotions.

Things of note this evening:

-Made it to spin class and sweat my booty off to some good tunes and heavy hills
-Dad and Cheryl are happy and relaxed on their honeymoon
-Off to a movie date with none other than littlejandthecity for some BFF action and Gone Girl

The weekend was a whirlwind of events, which I’ll hopefully get to recapping before 2015, and I’m thrilled to be back home in NYC. Today was my Monday, so I’ve already won this week (and, in all three of my fantasy leagues, I might add).

It’s obvious my answer is ‘yes!!!!!’, right (my name was put on a bottle of wine - FYI)? #bridesmaid #myBFFSaregettingmarried (at boston, ma) View high resolution
