I can't believe that North Carolina actually passed Amendment 1. People have their posts about how wonderful it is that two people who love one another *can't* get married, so I think that I should be able to have a post that says otherwise. I'm very disappointed. We live in a society that allows children without jobs - still in school - totally unprepared to have babies, a society where it's okay to look like an orange version of panty-less Paris Hilton, a society that loves drama & seeing others hurt. It's definitely time to open your heart & your mind. Have some compassion. If you do not agree then by all means keep your hurtful words to yourself!

Life is life. I don't think there's any other way to define it. I finally feel comfortable with who I am & who I will be. I recognize myself as compassionate, caring, & very human. I give my best. Sometimes of course that doesn't work out but knowing that I put forth 100% of myself makes me feel like I've won either way. The job that I have has kind of stressed me lately because I've encountered irate, confused, & rude people who really don't care. But I care...& I will always give all the positivity that I have to make my life & the lives of others a little bit better. I'm here to fulfill some sort of purpose..& I'm going to do my best to succeed.

I think this song has always summed up my childhood. I hold a special place in my heart for Everclear.

It's such a beautiful day!

I've been sunbathing. =D

Back to work tomorrow. I've had 2 days off.

Things feel better.
I feel better.
=)

How could someone not love a day like this?



(btw, that's a new friend that I made. I named her Flavia (from the Alan Bradley Flavia De Luce series), I'm pretty sure she's a stray. I feed her regularly. I think I'll claim her now.)

I am the kind of person who would miss a train or a plane to meet you for coffee. I’d take a taxi across town to see you for ten minutes. I’d wait outside all night if I thought you would open the door in the morning. If you call me and say ‘Will you…’ my answer is ‘Yes’, before your sentence is out. I spin worlds where we could be together. I dream you. For me, imagination and desire are very close.”
― Jeanette Winterson


To lose someone you love is to alter your life for ever. You don’t get over it because ‘it” is the person you loved. The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes. How could it? The particularness of someone who mattered enough to grieve over is not made anodyne by death. This hole in my heart is in the shape of you and no-one else can fit it. Why would I want them to?”

[ mood | aunt flo, I hate you ]

I was emailed my training/work schedule earlier today.
So I work 8 & a half hrs. per day, 5 days a week --- off on Sundays & Mondays.
Not bad. =)

There was insane lightening & hail here earlier this afternoon. Now it's sunny. It's supposed to Snow Sunday. I really don't get this weather that we're having.

Got a super cute skirt in the mail today that I found on ebay for like $4.50 (including shipping!). I plan to wear it to work since they have a business-casual dress code. I need to shop for some more clothing items & accessories. I have way too many shoes (if that's possible). Forever 21, here I come!

I had to buy a 3 ring binder for work, which I haven't done since high school. Don't even ask how long ago that was, lol. I found a really cute one for only $3.
I'm actually excited about going back to school in 5 months & going to buy school supplies! I seriously feel like I'm 5 again & I'm going to Kindergarten. It's an exciting time.

So it really looks like I'm going to have to start applying for more jobs.

I haven't been contacted at all by the business that I thought was going to hire me. (It's been 12 days & they said that they would get back to me within 7).
I feel like I've been busting my ass trying to find something, just a bit frustrating.
My car is supposedly going to be fixed tomorrow. Dear God, I hope so.
I've been borrowing my fiance's mother's car until mine is good to go.

I'm dog-sitting for my Mother until Wednesday.

Writer's Block: Ready for Your Close-up [27 Feb 2012|12:01pm]
[ mood | awake ]

You have been given an opportunity to have a movie made about your life. What actor/actress would play you? And what would the plot of the movie be?


I've always thought that Natalie Portman should play me in a movie about my life (I think that she could convey my quirkiness, lol).
The plot being my life: achievements, downfalls, drama, insane moments, amazingly beautiful moments, etc.

I'm back... [26 Feb 2012|11:10pm]
[ mood | sleepy ]

I'm very bad at updating, but I've found myself wondering what is going on in the lives of my LJ friends & how much I miss the community...so I'm going to try to give it a go again.

Quite a bit has been going on in my life...

I've been job hunting like mad. I think I applied at 13+ places. I'm waiting to hear back from one of the businesses. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get the job, because I *desperately* need it.

I start school in August to major in Psychology. Pretty darned exciting! I'm a little nervous, but basically just grateful to be able to get back into a learning environment.

Planning an August wedding for Aiden & I. (I can't believe it's only 6 months away!)
I have yet to pick out my dress & everything. I'm very indecisive about which style I want to go with. It's fun to browse dresses. =)
