Things I want #362:

Cold weather, so I can keep my heat low so my cats are forced to snuggle with me for warmth.

Fall decor and The Replacements (my dad’s favorite movie) on TV make for a cozy rainy evening.

Fun fact: This was actually brought over from the Digital newsroom in Arlington, when washingtonpost.com was still separate from the print newsroom at 15th and L. We may have lost free bagel Mondays, but we definitely kept this sucker.

After IMing all day about our sad love lives, favorite coworker and I are now swapping photos of our cats. Who needs men when you have super cute lap warmers?

You are enough. You are so enough, it is unbelievable how enough you are.

have you ever

made a big life decision, but it fits into a one-year-plan (because hi! planning, money, etc.), so you just have to wait until said exciting things happen and work your butt off to ensure that it does? so, even though it’s now less than a year, it still feels like an eternity away and you just want it to happen rightthissecond. i’m guessing that means you have made the right choice, even though it’s still hella scary. right?

Turning 31 isn’t so bad when you get to work from home, showered and dressed but under the covers in bed because you can, with a sidekick who won’t leave your side.

someone referred to me as a “hipster millennial” in a meeting today

and i’m not quite sure how to take that.

1) Learn to put on your bracelets and zip up your dresses by yourself. There will be times when you will be alone.
2) Get on a long plane ride. Look out the window. Understand the immensity of our world. Understand your insignificance. Understand your absolute importance.
3) Press the send button. If you don’t say it now, you never will.
4) Do not sneer at happiness or roll your eyes at sadness. Be aware that apathy is not healthy.
5) You are more than the amount of people who want to have sex with you.
6) That pit in your stomach when he doesn’t text you back, it shouldn’t be there. No one should be able to control you like that.
7) Shopping is cathartic. Buy the shoes and deal with one-ply toilet paper for a while.
8) It will get better, but it will never be perfect. Learn to live through the small moments of happiness. When they disappear, remember they will resurface.
9) I promise that cookie will not change anything (except that it will make you smile).
10) Please, please, take care of yourself. You are everything to somebody. You are everything to your self. That alone is enough.

Asked by red-bird-writes red-bird-writes

Do you still work for Animal Planet? And if so, do you still want all of the animals? Also - come to New York again so we can get together! :)

Hi hi hi! Yes, I do still work at Animal Planet. My boss has dubbed me the “Build Queen” because I tend to work on all our build-related shows, my favorite being Treehouse Masters. And yes, I want all of the animals. Wishing I owned acres upon acres of land and was independently wealthy so I could adopt a million and get them proper care and also raise alpacas. Instead, I will weep at forking over nearly half of my monthly income to rent and living costs. But one can dream, right? Or marry a billionaire! 

And I really do want to come to NYC! I may be up there for work again in October and may extend my stay into a weekend trip, but I’m not sure if I’ll get the go-ahead to go for the shoot. BUT, if that falls through, I definitely want to get up there on my own time to meet up!

Hi, my name is Jodi. And I cry at my desk at least once a day watching videos about dogs, cats, and animal rescues.
