My 19th Birthday!

I had a wonderful 19th birthday consisting of relaxing with friends, blowing out the candles with family and having the "happy birthday" song sung to me at the park at night. No raging party or big celebration, but who needs one? I had a lovely birthday with lovely peeps! 

I woke up to this coupon for my hair coloring!

White lace birthday dress <3

My grandma gave me a shiny black jewelry box with red flowers on it. Just my style, it's gorgeous.
Nothing went wrong, 19th birthday was a success!

Forgive & Forget

     Remember when I wrote about how I felt like I was "on the edge of something good" a few blog posts ago? Boy, did I hit the bullseye with that one. This week has brought me closure in so many ways. First off, I became cool with someone I never ever thought I'd be cool with. Ever. A girl who I've held a big fat grudge against for two years straight. Our friendship was blown up by a missile of betrayal (Please excuse my over-dramatic metaphors, it's getting late) and instead of talking it out like normal people, we just decided to ignore each others very existence. For two years. The delete-you-on-Facebook and avoid-eye-contact and never-mention-your-name-because-it's-like-Voldemort kind of ignorance. Awkward as hell, right? So there was two years of that, and guess how long it took to solve the problem face-to-face? Less than five minutes.

Make friends with your enemies? Whaaaat?!
     We're not best friends or all buddy buddy or anything like that, we're just cool now. No hard feelings. I feel like all the anger and hurt I've been carrying around with me has crumbled and disappeared. It's a huge weight off my shoulders. It's something I literally thought would never happen in a million years, but it did. And I feel so much better. Here's a word of wisdom to all you readers out there: If you're harboring bad feelings for someone, hate someone, have wronged someone, or just plain don't get along with someone... Talk to them. Don't send them a text or a Facebook message! Talk to them face-to-face, and get everything out in the open. Speak your mind and let them speak theirs. If your problem isn't solved within 15 minutes, you get your money back guaranteed. The feeling of relief that washes over you when you realize there isn't a single person on this earth who you "hate" or who "hates" you is way worth it. Fuck the bullshit, we can all get along.

Currently... February!

Obsessing over: Breaking Bad! This television show will blow your mind, over and over again. Each episode feels like an entire movie. It's intense, complex, shocking, interesting, addicting, and will deff have you on the edge of your seat... Or couch. The lead actor is Bryan Cranston, better known as Hal from Malcolm in the Middle. I don't wanna give away too much, but let's just say Hal ends up getting in a little over his head on this series. This show makes all over TV shows look like poop. Everybody hop on Netflix and watch yourself some Breaking Bad, I promise you'll be hooked by the first episode!

Working on: This blog! Dreaming up DIY's, recipes, lists, how-to's, photographs, personal writings and plenty of other lovely ideas to post in the near future. I can't wait to keep filling this blog to the brim with whatever sparks my interest. Blogging hasn't become a chore yet, like most things I try to keep up with. I actually found something I really, really like to do in my spare time. Score!

Thinking about: My upcoming birthday! My birthday has gone undercover for the past five years or so. I never really throw parties anymore or do anything special, but this year that will change. Whether it's going out to dinner with a few friends or throwing a huge house party, I'm ready to celebrate and ain't nobody stoppin' me! 

Anticipating: the day when my hair magically transforms from blonde to brown, which should be sometime this week! (Keyword: should. I've been planning this for almost two months now but never get around to making an appointment!) I'm dying it dark chestnut brown underneath from a box tonight, and getting the whole head to gradually fade into that color in a few days. 

Listening to: Classic Punk/New Wave station on Pandora! As hard as I try, I can't get into the music of today. I just can't. The only sounds my ears will tolerate are sounds that were made in the 1990's and back. Keep your Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, and keep them far away from me!

Eating: Rotini pasta with red sauce & parmesan cheese! It's a simple, 20-minute meal and it never fails.

Wishing: That somebody would come and sweep me off my feet. I know it sounds gay and cliché, but I miss having butterflies in my tummy. I miss having phone calls to look forward to. And I miss having a partner in crime. Booo-hoo!

Looove Zofo

       This week, I feel like I'm on the edge of something good!
Not sure if it's because I'm turning 19 on Thursday, because I'm powering through my second semester of college, because the weather is finally warming up or the fact that I'm a free woman now... Not that I wasn't before, of course! But whatever it is, it's a lovely feeling! I feel productive and (almost) on top of things. Speaking of being productive, I cranked out a five page essay about Buffalo Bill tonight without opening a single book. Tomorrow I'm buckling down and writing another one about Jeffrey Dahmer for my Criminal Justice class. I'll probably actually learn something for that one though, serial killers are always an interesting read. Anyways...

     In other breaking news that everyone cares about, I just discovered Instagram on my iPad, and I am already obsessed with it. Obsessed! Who needs lame wordy statuses when you can say everything to you need to say in a photo? It's my kinda thang, I can already tell. I also figured out how to make pretty little collages with the pictures. Score. Oh yeah, see those chocolates on the bottom right? Those were Valentine's day chocolates. That I bought myself. For myself. With my own money. Single and mothafuckin' proud, who needs a Valentine anyways? I also wear a silver & citrine ring on my left middle finger, always. Bought with my own money as well. It's a wedding ring to myself, 'cause everybody else will let you down at some point. It's also a fuck you to anyone who does... Hence the middle finger. When shit hits the fan, you are the only person you can count on in life! All you Valentine's day haters need to stop being miserable and learn to love yourself. If you desperately need someone else to do it for you, you may have issues.
     Totally not saying you should tell everyone to fuck off and become a hermit, just saying that you can't rely on another person to make you feel good about yourself. It's just gotta be you. You are all you really need to be happy, a significant other just adds more to the equation... It's almost midnight. Now that I've successfully wasted 20 minutes rambling on about nothing, I think I'll cut this post short and say goodnight. For everyone's sake, goodnight!

My Final Days of Eighteen-ness

     As of right now, I've got exactly one week left with my 18 year-old self before Mrs. 19 comes barging through the door. Being 18 has been pretty much insane for me. I feel like I'm living a double life most of the time... School, homework, and my mom on one extreme and EVERYTHING else on another extreme. I wish I could post more stories on here and be honest about everything, but I'm afraid the wrong person will read it and either a) report me to LBPD, b) send me to rehab, or c) tell my mother, which would be the worst possible option out of the three. Maybe one day when I'm 60 I'll reveal some of my teenaged shenanigans to y'all. I've had so many "firsts" these past few years. I've stepped way out of my comfort zone, tried new things, discovered new places and discovered so many things about yours truly. I feel like I grew up, gained a TON of self-confidence, and figured out a lot more about who I am. (Well, as much as you can possibly figure out at this age.) I've transformed from a shy goody-two-shoes kid to a 13 year-old deviant who thinks she knows everything, and somehow ended up an intelligent, outgoing, absolutely stunning woman. Just kidding about that last part ;) But seriously, I've come a long way from home. Now, I could start droning on & on about my academic achievements or my college GPA, but the moments that really highlighted my life so far haven't had a thing to do with school or work. Sometimes the best times are when I'm just laying around an empty motel room by myself, tangled in the sheets. Walking down the riverbed underneath the moon and stars. Sitting on street curbs and smoking cigarettes with you. Breaking into apartment complex swimming pools. Walking through the endless maze of Long Beach streets with the afternoon sun shining through the power lines. Cruising through the chilly night air on my bike. Laughing so hard it turns into an ab workout. Graduation made me happy, college makes me happy, my career will no doubt help to fulfill my life. But the very best moments in life are never planned or scheduled. I'll never forget being a naive, impulsive, fast paced 18 year-old girl & I wouldn't have lived the past year any different. Nineteen, bring it on!

My Very Unrealistic Birthday Wishlist

     Since I'm not getting anything for my birthday this year due to our lack of money (Booooo!) I decided to make an extremely unrealistic birthday wishlist. Maybe one day when I'm a millionare, all these things will be mine. All mine! Muahahaha. By the way, all of you lucky readers have until the 23rd of February to bring me all of these items. Just an FYI. A girl can dream, right?

This badass watch I saw inside Inked Magazine. The teeth move to display the time!

A vintage car. One that still runs.

A lifetime supply of coffee!


An old school tattoo. Or two. Or three.

This cute little seal keychain. Why, you ask? Because it's secretly a 1,000,000 volt taser. Seriously.

I bought the first Naked Palette literally a week before this one came out. And of course it's way better!

This amazing coffee cup would be nice.

Yummy shoes!

I'd like this cactus couch so I can invite my enemies over to watch some television.

I really really want a Doberman puppy. I grew up with one, and they are the sweetest most gentle animals you could ever encounter. They're friendly, playful, and amazing with children. On the flip side, if anybody fucks with you they're getting their face torn off. It's basically a win-win situation. Go Dobermans! (Oh, and sorry about the boobs. It was the best Doberman picture I could find.)

Bitches and Hoezzz

I hate girls.

I've seriously reached the end of my fuse. BOOM. I try so hard to be a girl's girl. I will never steal your boyfriend, I will never stab you in the back (unless you deserve it) and I will never be bitchy towards other girls just because I don't know them. Us females get a bad rep for being catty, and I try my best to change it. However, I've recently come to the conclusion that it's absolutely hopeless. Girls will kiss my boyfriend then "hate" me afterwards for some reason. Girls will do the "oops, I accidentally shoulder checked you while walking by" bullshit. Girls will give me the death stare for walking by and breathing their precious air. They'll tell me to keep my name out their mouth for making one stupid innocent comment, then have my name in theirs all fucking day. Whats wrong with all these dumb bitches nowadays? I guess they just don't make them like they used to.

Lovely Weekend Links

Yes, they're back! Lovely weekend links! So what if today is Wednesday? It's my blog and I'll post what I want. Fuck the police.
