I’m not sure how many of you care about/follow my life, but I just wanted to add an update really quick. For those who don’t know, my boyfriend, Josh and I have been together for almost 7 years. He grew up in Michigan and I grew up in Ohio but, oddly enough, we met here in North Carolina.

We’ve been trying to move back to Michigan for the last 2-3 years, and last April, he flew up twice in order to test and interview for a position at the oil company his stepdad works at. Everyone was so sure he would get it, and in the end, they told him they “couldn’t encourage him further”.

He applied again a few weeks ago and received an email the other night inviting him to test again. It’s a really really good paying job that would allow us to move back and live quite a bit more comfortably than we have been. The test isn’t until the beginning of December and I’m already anxious and trying not to think about it too much.

I’m not sure what the point of this post was other than to ask for your happy thoughts! :)

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII tried on engagement rings yesterday. With Josh. AND had my finger sized and everything, and picked out which ones I liked and they went on file, AND IT’S TOTALLY HAPPENING SOON-ISH. FINALLLLYYYYY AFTER SEVEN YEARS!

I liked the 1 carat princess cut solitaire in the Tiffany setting. Like this.

The Beats Music App is my new favorite thing. Free 90-Day Trial through AT&T! (Free 7-day trial for everyone else.)

This is probably more of me than you wanted to see, but I’m just happy there’s actually a physical obvious reason my neck hurts.

(The short story is that it’s just how my spine is and I’ll have to exercise my neck every day for the rest of my life in order to stop being in pain.)

So I’ve been waiting and waiting to upgrade my phone and for a YEAR I’ve been told I’d just have to wait until November. So I check this morning and apparently, I can’t get a new phone until fucking APRIL, because AT&T changed their policy from 20 months to 24 months and I thought it didn’t affect me.

Also, something didn’t show up in my bank account, and after recalculating everything, I have exactly $10 until payday a week from Friday. Fan-fucking-tastic.

Look how good my hair and makeup look today though.

Sorry for the unnecessary cleavage. But my authentic Naked 2 palette came in today and I got pretty excited. Then I found my curling iron buried under a bunch of junk in the bathroom.

My Gunnars came today! Please excuse my dirty work hair.

So far, they seem to be doing a pretty good job. My eyes don’t feel nearly as tired and the headache my brain was working on at lunch went away after I got these in the mail and wore them the rest of the day. I have the Anime style, but they have plenty of other kinds available on their site!

So since flickr was purchased by yahoo, they’ve given all users a terabyte of space. Which means all of my photos that got locked when I stopped paying $25 a year are now available to me!

This is my favorite photo I’ve ever taken. It was taken at the North Carolina Zoo in Asheville. This polar bear was splayed out on a rock, growling menacingly at something in his sleep. It was so funny!

Pretty happy they didn’t announce a new Nexus 7 at Google I/O yesterday since I just got mine a week ago.

Josh’s mom got me T and J Pandora charms for my birthday. My bracelet’s filling up quick! ♥

My huge 14 pound 7 year old cat still thinks it’s okay to make me hold him with one arm so he can cuddle by my face when I’m using the computer. He was so happy he was drooling.

A little keychain I made using shrinky dinks, colored pencils, and a sharpie. I placed the skrinky dink paper over my monitor and traced TsaoShin’s beautiful art I found here, then colored it in. My shading is obviously not as good as hers, but I’m pretty impressed with how it turned out!

A print I got Josh for his birthday of Batman made of bats. It was created by Melissa Smith and is available here.
