The second half of Justin Timberlake‘s epic 2-part album dropped yesterday. He celebrated with Ellen (technically on Friday) during her show for a special record release party and it was nothing short of perfection. He mentioned how long the songs are and how he didn’t edit them down and his sassy answer—”because I didn’t want to”—helped me forgive the 6-11 minute commitment for each song. He performed two new songs (“TKO” and “True Blood“) plus an acoustic version of “What Goes Around … Comes Around.” (Ahem. Swoooooon!)
After his VMA performance (during which I fangirled like a freaking fool), I started to feel like a failure in that I didn’t even bother to try to get tickets to the see the President of Pop live. No, seeing him in 7th grade doesn’t count, because although the Pop Odyssey tour did blow my mind at that age, there is no doubt that the former *NSYNC frontman is on the ride of his life right now.
But wait—he announced on Facebook last week that new dates were being added! The angels were singing! The stars were aligning! Long story short, an entire paycheck fluttered out the window Monday morning as I snatched up four tickets for me and my three best girls for a February show at Madison Square Garden. ❤
As do we all, Ellen. As do we all.
So, besides spending money I don’t really have on concert tickets I couldn’t possibly pass up, here’s what’s new with me—adulthood blows.
I can’t believe I haven’t kept PSA regularly updated in almost 2 freaking weeks. I wanted to be fully committed to this thing and I was for quite some time, but all of a sudden it started to feel like I had no time to breathe, let alone do much else. This whole working full-time thing … I like it. Don’t get me wrong, ohhh, I like it. I’m making my first student loan payment this month … and by first, I mean legit the very first since I graduated over 3 years ago and immediately threw them into deferment because I was a broke-ass bitch. I like making money, duh, but I also happen to like my job. I’m in my field and doing what I love, which a lot of people my age can’t say. However, I feel like I’m in high school again in the sense that I get up, go to work, come home, eat dinner, go to the gym, come home, shower, watch my shows (all of which have been slowly coming back, woo!) and go to bed. Wake up, rinse, repeat. I’m still as wrapped up in entertainment as ever, I just don’t have the time I want to devote to writing about it. At least not while also getting enough of this thing called sleep. When I joined a new gym and started having to carve out another couple hours for that and my TV time, I fell into a bit of a sinkhole. But I’ll climb out of soon, I swear. It’s killing me—I didn’t even watch the Emmys! What the hell! And I still haven’t! They’re (im)patiently waiting for me on my DVR.
Last weekend would’ve been the perfect opportunity to catch up—I had zero plans and spent most of the weekend in my bed or on the couch, but that’s because I was insanely sick. Congested as hell, zero energy, I couldn’t have made my brain want to function. I’m finally starting to feel better. Slowly.
It’s time for a fresh start! It’s a new month and one of my favorites to boot. I love October. I’m a total child when it comes to autumn fun, which is probably really apparent at work by this point. So expect some fun PSAs coming up soon! I promise! No, seriously!
