A little Miike Snow "Animal" to start off a foggy Seattle morning:

Holy eff, what a productive weekend.

Thursday's Yelp event was fun and pretty mellow; I have to say I prefer only having one or two drinks at their soirees these days since a) they're always during the week and b) it's more entertaining to watch other people get buzzed up and do embarrassing things.

All day Friday at work I was sleepy and distracted and decided I would just take a nap as soon as I got home then run afterward. By the time 6 PM rolled around with no nap, I seriously thought about just pushing the run to Saturday. Then I sat in front of my blog being mocked by my nike+ mini for a good 45 minutes before I succumbed to the pressure - I had to run. My pace is off since I experienced a bit of "user error" and pushed the wrong button on my ipod at both the beginning AND end of my run; I can't wait to see what kind of time I can pull off when I start this next week of training and don't bungle my tracking.

Saturday and Sunday were devoted to cleaning my apartment and were a total effin' success. I passed up on a trip to the Woodland Park Zoo to literally hole myself up and watch most of Dexter Season 2, Mad Men Season 1 and a few movies while vacuuming, dusting, doing laundry/dishes, taking items to my storage closet/recycling/garbage, etc. I still have a few small tasks to wrap up, but I finished the weekend off with a long candle-lit bubble bath and a glass of champagne.

Today when I woke up to a fresh and tidy abode it felt really rewarding; now the whole point is to continually keep it clean - something I find much easier to do when I am single. Since the rest of my week is mostly free of any social obligations, I'm going to finish the last few cleaning tasks then focus on enjoying my hobbies (training, learning how to play the guitar) and taking care of a few more projects (washing my car, taking crap to Goodwill, sewing).

I turn twentyFINE in 8 days. I'm going to use this time to make sure that I'm starting the next year of my life (and the last year of my 20s) with a clear head, a comfortable and clean home and a healthy outlook for the future.
