My Peeps!

     When I first became a single lady not too long ago, I was under the impression that I'd be all by mself. One of those chicks that sits on the couch with a carton of Ben & Jerry's and a box of tissues. I thought I would be stuck without anyone to talk to or hangout with. I thought I'd become a loner. I thought that after spending every single day with the same person for two years straight, I'd end up with nobody because I'd mistakenly made him my everybody. You see, as the years went by I gradually separated myself from all my friends and family. Slowly but surely, they disappeared one by one. They didn't matter anymore. All that mattered was "the love of my life." HAH! Before could even realize it, the only people I talked to were HIM and HIS friends. And when HE left the picture? HIS friends were the ones who ended up sticking by my side in the end. I thought I'd be alone? Boy, was I wrong! I haven't spent a single day home alone, a single night with nobody to talk to, or a single weekend without anything to do. I've had friends this whole time, and they were right under my nose.

     I doubt any of these people will actually end up reading this, but I'm in a cheesy mood and just wanted to show 'em some appreciation. The past few months have been hard, and I met you all for a reason. Even if you aren't in any of these pictures, you should know who you are. Thanks for listening to me complain, putting up with my bullshit, and most of all, thanks for being so badass!

Back to School & Stupid Donut Ladies

 Tomorrow will be my first day of college all over again! New classes, a new schedule, a fresh start. I'm actually pretty pumped up and ready to get back in the swing of things. No more slippin'... I'm going to be on time, wake up early, and set aside plenty of time for studying. It may take a lot of energy (and a LOT of coffee), but I'm a pretty smart cookie when I want to be. I even got bored & made my desk all ready for work.

     In other news, this past month of Winter vacation has been a rollercoaster. To say the least. I'm not even going to GO there on this blog. If you're a friend of mine, you know whats up. If not, don't be afraid to ask. It's just a far cry from public website appropriate. Life is crazy sometimes, but it's getting better..

Kittenz & "Donut Storr" vanilla coffee, mmmm.

     The fucking lady in the donut shop was such an idiot. First off, the place was called the "Donut Storr." Sketchy. So we walk in & wait around at the front for a few minutes, fidgeting our thumbs. Where, oh where could the employee be? Finally a tiny little Asian lady emerges from the back and gives me a blank, 'what-the-hell-do-you-want' stare. "Can I get the hazelnut coffee?" I asked. Her answer was "NO." ...Alright then? "NO MORE HAZELNUT COFFEE." Okay, fine. So I ask for vanilla instead. "NO MORE COFFEEEE!" Uh... Okay. Then she points to this frostee-type machine and says "YOU WANT COLD?" I replied, "no... Do you have hot vanilla coffee?" "WE HAVE COFFEE, ONLY HOT!" Didn't you just say no? So I asked for the hot vanilla coffee again. "ONLY HOT!!! YOU WANT VANILLA OR MOCHA?" Vanilla, bitch. Did I not just explain this to your fob ass five times already? Jesus christ. Sometimes I wonder how people like this even have jobs in the first place. If you can barely speak English here, at least be kind and polite. If you're not gonna be kind and polite, at least be somewhat intelligent. If you aren't going to do any of the above... Get the fuck out of the donut shop, give an actual deserving citizen your job, and go back to your own haggard town where you won't ever have to be bothered about vanilla coffee again. Sorry for the rant, couldn't help myself. On a lighter note, the HOT VANILLA COFFEE turned out pretty tasty. Mmm.

2012 Goals: January!

I love making lists. I don't know if it's OCD, craziness, or just plain boredom, but I am an avid list maker. Building up a list of things I want to accomplish makes me feel like I'm handling my bizz, and checking items off those lists is a pretty amazing feeling too. Each month, I'm making a list of five things I want to get done. And I will do them, dammit! Here's my first attempt.

     1. Lose three pounds. It's January 18th. I've got a little more than 10 days left 'till the end of the month, but this is possible. I've dropped five pounds since last week (not on purpose, just unhealthy habits) so what's another three to go? All I have to do is continue being an impulsive teenager who doesn't eat 'till 3 or 4pm. I'd like to start running as well, but that'll have to wait until I'm not sick anymore. Woohooo!

     2. Dye my hair. Everybody begs me not to, but I've had this hair my entire life. I want a change. Nothing crazy, but I want something different. I'm not going pink, or blue, or even dark at all. Just a little lowlights and warm chestnut brown colors weaved in, with dark brown underneath. I'm tired of being blonde. Doesn't matter what ya'll think, I'm going for it!

     3. Apply for jobs & write my resume. No more excuses, it's time. I can't accomplish any of my BIG goals without this one first. You gotta start somewhere! (Even if it means McDonald's or Dollar Tree!)

     4. Find a really, really good book. It's almost embarrassing for me to say how long it's been since I've read a book. (Willingly.) A year? Or even longer? I'm a speed reader, and when I find a book that sparks my interest it doesn't leave my hands until it's done. Or until I'm done, and pass out with the book still open... Anyways, I'm on a mission to find an amazing read this month!

     5. Buy a cute scarf. Not a very meaningful goal, but hey. I'm writing this halfway through January man.

Sick Dayzz

It's the last week of Winter break until I start up college again, and whaddya' know?! I'm sick. I guess it's my own fault, running around town with no food in my tummy & no energy in my system. Sometimes I get so caught up in my day-to-day life that I forget to take care of myself. BLEH! I even forced myself to get up, get ready, & get outta the house yesterday despite feeling like I just got ran over by a freight train. Big mistake.

     Today, I'm locking myself up in my warm room with a hot cup of tea, candles, a messy bedroom to clean & a list of school-related things to take care of. It's physically impossible for me to lay around all day, so I might as well get some things done at home. I'm already getting antsy here. Screw being sick. Ahhh!

In 2011, I...

Even though I've had more than my share of bombshells dropped on me throughout 2011, this year definitely still had a shiny silver lining. A bright one! To celebrate the new year & gain closure on the last, I've gathered a little collection of photos taken throughout the past 12 months. Granted, the most important moments in my life usually don't happen in front of a camera (or are too juicy to post on my public blog!) but here are a few memories I did get to capture.
     In 2011, I...
