This is pretty simple. I’m going to tally up what has and hasn’t worked for my life in August.
I had an allergic reaction that caused my eyes to swell to uncomfortable size and forced me into seclusion for two days. Thanks Maybelline! I have thick lashes but I look like a toad.

- Sarah: 0 August:1
My printer broke. This is so serious I can’t even process it.
- Sarah: 0 August: 2
Recall there is a printer at my internship that I can use in emergencies.
- Sarah: .5 August: 2
Discover that my spayed cat is in heat. Awesome.
- Sarah: .5 August: 3
The ASPCA is doing a free spay/neuter in my neighborhood on the 20th?!?! Chalk one up to my side!
- Sarah: 1.5 August: 3
Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood have great new songs? I think that counts as double.

- Sarah: 3.5 August: 3
Thought Know I had a great audition for a play but did not get a callback. Is it that I’m too talented? I think that’s my problem.
- Sarah: 4 (I gave myself .5 for my talent) August: 4
Free tickets to an Eat Pray Love Screening!!
- Sarah: 5 August: 4
Realize that Eat Pray Love never should have been made into a movie.
- Sarah: 5, August: 5, Julia Roberts: 1, Ryan Murphy: 112 (the other 111 points are for all the celebrities that have starred, are going to star, rumored to star, and want to star on Glee.)
To summarize, August and I are tied at the moment, which is surprising. I started this scoreboard because I felt like August was kicking me in the stomach but now I see we are calmly holding hands and walking together on a quaint back street in Paris. What a great way for me to gain some perspective on my life. Wait… a new perspective? That’s sooooo another point!
Sarah: 6 August: 5
Hmm. Giving myself another point was so nice, I think I’ll do it again. Just cause.
Sarah: 7 August: 5
And now, I’m going to take a point away from August because I am Master of the Scoreboard and I feel like it.
Sarah: 7 August: 4
HA! Look how easy it was to do that! How was it so easy?
Because I’m the one holding the chalk.
And that my grasshoppers, is all for today’s lesson. You may go now.

Don’t forget to watch out for the toad.
