Also, I'm definitely going to become addicted to this new blogging site Kara showed me.
It’s like tumblr, only the posts are more organized. I’ll get it all going once all my homework for the weekend is complete, and I reward myself with hours upon hours of playing my new and amazing SIMS 3 PETS!
It’s seriously taking over my life. Pets pets pets pets pets pets pets… and more pets!
I had my outfit all planned out today. Well, when I walk into my room, my closet is in disarray, and I know my sister has been in there again. I walk into the closet, and my fucking boots are missing, along with my sweater, belt, and LEATHER FUCKING JACKET.
I’m so sick of her walking in when I’m not there, feeling entitled to the nice clothes that I buy for myself, and taking my shit. I’ve addressed it countless times, and she apologizes, Mom “gets onto her”, then after a few days it’s back to the same old shit.
I know it seems petty, but it happens all the fucking time. If I’m going to drop the money to buy nice shit, I’d like to be able to wear it when I feel like it.
I now realize, after all of this incessant typing about my oh-so-busy life, it really isn’t all that interesting. The highlight of my entire week was watching five-year-old children with football helmets riding sheep across a field at a hick-fair, and indulging in turkey legs the size of the five-year-olds themselves.
That’s all that really needs to be said. However, if you want gory details, feel free to delve into every nook and cranny of my life. I’ve even got it all organized and bulletized for you guys! Here it is:
School: Getting A’s on all my papers and exams, kicking ass for the most part. As far as next semester goes, I’m looking into taking 5 classes: Chaucer, Queer Theory, Latin, The Romantics, and an independent study in Professional Editing. It should be pretty amazing, and I’m really looking forward to it.
Future Plans: I bought a book in the used book sale at the library today solely about career paths for English majors, so I’m definitely focused. Looking into doing some volunteer work with VKSU in the near future, and I’m attempting to have a work of mine published within the next year. Not to mention I’m scavenging for an amazing summer internship to put on my application to grad school. Dane and I are planning on moving in together next fall, hopefully into a older, more rustic apartment in Atlanta- if that makes any sense at all. But, in case we aren’t ready by then, I’ve got my back-up plan: moving up to an apartment or house in Kennesaw. The whole point of moving is to be closer to school, although I must say that I love my job in Fayetteville, and living with my mommy is actually quite nice.
Work: One of my managers came back after having her baby, and as she hasn’t really ever seen my work ethic, she’s really impressed. I find this funny since another one of my managers (for some reason) believes me to be incompetent. Making a decent amount of money; by decent, I mean it’s getting me to school and back.
Family: We all went to the Perry Fair together on Sunday, and I partook in a crazily unhealthy amount of eating: corn dogs, turkey legs, funnel cake, cotton candy, candy apples, lemonade, nachos, Icees - the whole shebang. Needless to say, we had a great time. :)
Friends: I didn’t work at all this past weekend because Paula came home from UGA. We spent pretty much the whole weekend together doing nothing, and it was awesome. As of now, I’m sitting around at Liz’s with her, celebrating the release of Just Dance 3, and more importantly, The Sims 3 Pets! I feel like I’m neglecting my friends more than any other aspect of my life right now, and I’m trying so hard to fix it. It just seems that there’s literally not enough time in the day to do everything and make everyone happy.
Relationship: So, I put Dane on the back burner for my friends and family this past weekend, and he didn’t like it at all. Pouty, pouty, pouty. However, it was pretty cute, not to mention a reality check for him. He now realizes I have more going on in my life besides our relationship. But, all is well as I made it up to him last night and this morning and he has forgiven me for my “negligence”. It’s hard to believe that we’ve almost made it exactly two-and-a-half years next Saturday. I can’t even begin to justify why I’ve put up with him for this long! ;)
Health: Definitely have had the same cold for almost two weeks. It’s nearly gone now, but as soon as it starts to diminish, I end up with a UTI. It’s the first one I’ve ever had, and I nearly died. It seems so fucked up to me that “relieving yourself” can be so painful. But that’s almost all better now! I started taking vitamins, working out more regularly, and trying to eat a little bit healthier. I’m starting to worry that my metabolism is going to slow down, especially with my large beer intake.
“Yes, my consuming desire is to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, barroom regulars—to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording—all this is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always supposedly in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yes, God, I want to talk to everybody as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night…”—Sylvia Plath (via myquotelibrary)
“A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation. Lend and borrow to the maximum — of both books and money! But especially books, for books represent infinitely more than money. A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold.”— Henry Miller (via thesearepeopleyouknow)
