A stranger told me I look like a sexy Peter Pan ๐Ÿงš๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ Iโ€™ll consider that mission accomplished?? Also can we take a moment to collectively thank the gods that I somehow cut this hairstyle MYSELF and didnโ€™t end up bald ... #diyhaircut #shorthairdontcare #neverland #feelingmyself #sexypeterpan #waitwhyisthatahashtag #chopped #whyaretheresomanysexypeterpans #bedhead #decadentmeatball

MY HEARTTTTT ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜ญ also I never properly thanked everyone who helped us out with Georgeโ€™s emergency surgery so THANK YOU!! It was a very stressful time but your generosity made it manageable. And as you can see, George made a full recovery and is back to his normal, clingy self ... #brotherlylove #catsofinstagram #cuddles #precious #cutecouples #socuteimgonnadie #mybabies #cats #sweetnesses #juicyandcrispy #snoozycat #myloves #sleepy #decadentmeatball

Me: holy crap I somehow finished writing the majority of thesis in a week ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ™ George: LAMEEEE. Tbh it seems hella boring. Can I chew on it instead? Also scratch me plz

I know, I know. Making lasagna from scratch instead of working on my thesis may SEEM like procrastination. But really when you think about it... yeah, okay itโ€™s pretty much just procrastination ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ but itโ€™s really, really yummy procrastination ... Recipe loosely adapted from https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2015/01/lasagna-napoletana-sausage-smoked-cheese-recipe.html ... #oops #noregrets #whenthemoonhitsyoureye #lasagnanapoletana #pasta #delicious #cheeseeeeeee #decadentmeatball #thesisstrugglesaresoreal

Some mornings you take an idyllic walk by the ocean. Other mornings you eat leftover cheesesteak in bed and then finish eating it in the shower because youโ€™re running late. Clearly Monday mornings bring out my dark sideโ€” but lifeโ€™s all about balance, right? Mind the shower crumbs ... #mondaystruggles #morning #cheesesteakforbreakfast #showerfood #iamoutofcontrol #leftovers #stillsleepy #thesisquarter #decadentmeatball

They say the early bird gets the worm, but I think I prefer getting this gorgeous sunrise coffee spot all to myself โ˜•๏ธ๐ŸŒ… grabbed a bagel and latte from @rosebakerycafe and strolled down to Inspiration Point for a little reading this morning. Just the mental reset I needed to prepare myself for the start of another week ... #earlybird #coronadelmar #inspirationpoint #morning #sunrise #ocean #california #coffeetime #cliffs #youcankeeptheworms #decadentmeatball

As we all knew it would come to pass, this is clearly going to be a โ€œdouble fisting coffee and cheap beer at 6pm on a Sundayโ€ kind of quarter ๐Ÿปโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿคฎ send help and stay tuned for more posts from my new series, Murder by Masters Thesis. Eventual sequels include Death by Dissertation, Asphyxiated by Academia and Chucking My Computer Out the Gdm Window.

Hmm it looks like someone has realized his cone of shame can double as a snack storage device ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคค it was another long and restless night, but Georgeโ€™s appetite is finally back, his temp seems more stable, and things are heading in the right direction ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ ๐ŸŽ‰
