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.
I feel like I wanna puke and then cry. I really need to get on some kind of birth control and balance all this bullshit out. I can’t handle feeling like a sobbing psychotic mess every month.
Oh, I almost forgot. On the small bright side, I will be getting a little promotion (of sorts) at work. Instead of being the cashier (which pays barely enough for me to scrape by), I will be moving to the sales desk. Which sounds scary. Mostly because I’m a sucky salesperson, but I feel that really only counts because in the past, I was forced to try and get people to buy things they don’t need. At a mulch and stone yard, people pretty much already know what they need going in. Plus, I know almost everything about all of the products.
Also, pay increase. I don’t know how much, but I’m hoping at least $2.
Thank you guys! I completely agree, he should at least be reimbursed. Booking a flight a week out ain’t cheap. And as they say, when a door closes, a window opens.
But it still really sucks. Obviously, this was a possibility, and even though I was trying to prepare for both scenarios, I was about 75% sure he’d get it. It’s just devastating.
I don’t normally post too much about my personal life, but I mentioned a few weeks ago that my boyfriend of 5 1/2 years had applied for a very good job up in his home state of Michigan. He initially applied at the end of January.
He was selected to test somewhere in the middle of February. On the morning of his brother’s wedding (a couple weeks ago), he interviewed for this job.
And today we found out he didn’t get it.
This is absolutely crushing. We spent money we did not have (and still do not have) for him to go up there. There is literally nothing else he could have done. It’s a good 14 hour drive from here to there. I am stunned and incredibly angry.
He feels awful because he feels he has let everyone down, when in reality, this company has let all of us down. What was the point? I could see if we already lived in Michigan and they made him take all of those steps and miss out. We’d be annoyed, sure. But to come up from 5 states away twice?
Thanks for wasting our time and money, as well as getting our hopes up. Thanks a lot.
FINALLY got home. We left southern Michigan last night around 6:30. After taking a really weird, winding road through Ohio, it had started raining and it was so dark, we got too tired to continue. We stopped at a hotel in Charleston, West Virginia and paid $100 to borrow a bed in which to sleep for four hours.
Then, when we finally get back to North Carolina around 3:30, I drove my Mom to the airport (she was watching the dogs) only to come back and find that it smelled like cooked cat pee in the house and that she had accidentally locked a cat in the bedroom who proceeded to pee and poop all over poor Bruxley’s bed. Also she left tons of dirty dishes and trash everywhere.
WHAT THE FUCK. Welcome home?
