Oh look, an update!

The greatest stress on my shoulders right now is the fact that I cannot get ahold of ticket(s) to see John Mayer! He's coming to town in a couple of weeks and I've been looking on Craigslist and eBay daily. Everytime I get close, the person sells them. But come Monday, I will have my refund and I will buy those damn tickets! Someone in my town has a set of two so I'm hoping I can just get the tickets from them and be done with it. I must go! He's one of my favorites and I've never seen him live!

In other notes, I had a great week. I've been busy with school and work. Such is life nowadays. I really like my Marketing class if I haven't said so already. Good thing since it's my major, huh?

Every Friday, my boyfriend and I have the day off together. It's the one day we both share and I'm always trying to get him to do something with me. I started off by trying to bribe him to go to the Coach Outlet with me because I have a 20% off coupon that expires on Sunday. No such luck. But he did offer to go shopping elsewhere so I took him up on the offer. Overall it was a great day! We went to Savers, one of my fave spots, and Barnes & Noble. I was still able to get my hands on a Peppermint Mocha which made my day because today was so incredibly cold. The wind was strong and it was just plain freezing out.

Alright well I'm off to watch the newest Teen Mom. Shush, it's one of my guilty pleasures!

I'm baaack.

I did it again. You know, that disappearing magic trick that I'm so infamous for?

Things have been hectic with work and school and life. I started school last thursday. What an adventure that was. This is my second semester at college. Last semester I took night classes and now I am doing days. I go twice a week and take 3 classes on each of those days which consumes my since the school is about 45min away. I don't mind it one bit. I'd rather be at school than at work anyway. Packed parking lot, busy hallways, the rush & the buzz.

Work has been the same. Had a good weekend for money. Today however was wicked slow. I'm assuming the downpour kept people inside today, can't blame 'em. I filed my taxes this weekend! Will probably be getting my refund in about a weekend and a half. Oh man I cannot wait. Coach Outlet here I come!!! Can you believe I've never been before? I'm looking forward to it so much.

Well that is all for now. I'm going to lay in bed and watch the Pregnancy Pact on Lifetime. I've been trying to watch it for 3 days now and always end up passing out either before or early into the movie! Heard it was good though so I will try again!

Talk to ya's soon. <3

My favorite thing about Sundays are PostSecret.

Sorry for the lack of updates. Overall I really don't have any bitching to do because this weekend went fairly well. I made pretty good money and everyone was super nice which is rare. I had a few generous customers which I definitely appreciated!

The job search is forever ongoing. There really are no jobs. I have been keeping my eyes peeled searching the papers,, craigslist, monster, etc etc but to no avail. Guess I'll just keep playing the Powerball. lol.

I did have a strange dream last night about work though. It was a normal morning of waiting for customers and bitching & complaining with the cook about management/staff/customers/life. The lights started to flicker and the grill shut off. The cook tried resetting the breaker. Soon after that, the lights went dim. So I'm at a table serving food and come back to the service aisle when the lights went completely out. I remember everyone shuffling to get out of the building but I was searching for my purse in the dark. I started getting light headed and everyone was calling for me to get out. So finally I find my bag and head outside here I find everyone else sitting on the sidewalk and the cook tells me we've been exposed to carbon monoxide. So we're all sitting there waiting for the ambulances and fire trucks to arrive and people are telling me I need to get checked out because I don't look good. I remember the fear, it was so strong. I remembered how people say that carbon monoxide is a silent killer so I started to panic and kept saying "I should've quit this hellhole. OMG I hate this place". Then I woke up. Isn't that strange?

Totally relative to the dream, I do hate the place. I need to get out. I can't help but feel like I'm missing out on better experiences by staying. The job is so redundant and mindless and I need something more stimulating. I wish opportunity would knock soon! The search continues.

And with that said, I just remembered that it's Sunday and time to head over to PostSecret! One of my favorite things about Sundays!

Living Oprah?

So I am browsing around the website to familiarize myself with it because my Marketing Professor aka my advisor has suggested doing so to prepare for our class that starts in two weeks. While doing so, I stumbled upon an article about a woman who decided for a whole year that she would live by standards suggested by the "queen of media" aka Oprah. The woman stresses the fact that the suggestions Oprah made for living made me her sad and at times inadequate. I wonder why?

Don't get me wrong, I like Oprah. I can't hate on her for doing what she does and have watched her show once or twice but to "Live Oprah" for a whole year seems a little foolish. First of all, the woman has billions of dollars. This means there are no limits on what she can do. She may have been living on less at some time or another but it was years and years ago and she hasn't the slightest clue on what it's like to live in the middle or shall I say, lower class in today's economy. And not only that, she's giving relationship and sex advice! She's not even married. I'm just going to take a wild guess and say this "Living Oprah" lifestyle isn't exactly coming from Oprah herself, if you know what I mean. The writers of her show develop these ways in which they're telling you (or shall I say suggesting) you to live. And from what this poor woman says in the article, don't waste your valuable time.

Here's a link to the article. Living Oprah For A Year

Am I Living it Right?

So it's been awhile. I have the tendency of doing just that.. leaving you hanging. Not that anyone reads this silly little blog anyway.

Today I started a workout routine and a half-ass diet. Really what I'm trying to do is eat healthier. I feel any kind of effort has got to be better that what I've been doing which is a whole not of nothing. I need to lose so much weight. I don't know how I got this big. I hate it.

I just got my first semester grades in. I passed! I only took two classes to get started. I got an A in English and a C in Math. I'm very excited to have passed the math because I did struggle with it. I'm actually looking forward to next semester which starts in two weeks.

I'm glad that it's 2010. It's a whole new year and decade. I've been quite nostalgic lately though. I had the weirdest dream last night about two people in my life that I miss the most. I dreamed about my brother who passed away in 2007 and my friend Maryrose who I haven't talked to in over a year and a half. I don't know where she is or even if she is okay. I know what I need to do. All I have to do is work up enough courage to stop by her mom's house and ask her to give Mary my number. You see, Mary's always on the go. She never stays in one place or has one phone number for longer than a month or two. But maybe she's changed? I don't know. I just know that I've changed my number and moved so she wouldn't be able to find me either. I don't know why they were both in the same dream though. Very strange. But damn do I miss her so much. And needless to say, I'll forever miss my brother Mike. Rest in Peace buddy. <3
