I haven't updated this thing in almost 2 months. I guess that means things have been going good? I guess, since I typically use this to rant, vent, release angst & genuinely complain about everything. Honestly though, things have been going fine. ( I got a new kitten.Collapse )
She looks like a mix between a gremlin & a grumpy old man. AKA she is adorable. Her name is Lola.
Besides that bundle of joy, it's been the same shit different day. Oh, well, I quit my job earlier this month. I finally have my weekends back, so that's nice. Also, whether it's due to the fact that I only have 1 technical
job now or not, I am getting so boss at saving my money. Once I accepted that I did in fact blow through $1200 in graduation money in less than 4 months, I realized it was time to start saving my money. It's quite easy, actually. Except now, I am THAT much more bitter when I have to pay for my bills every month (which is now $500, as opposed to $400 the last time I updated).
So, like I mentioned, Shooter Jennings has become the new love of my life. I was unaware this bad boy even existed. Probably due to the fact that I am not that
into Waylon - I just fancy his music every now & then. Shooter's music is just great, it really is. He's hit the nail on the head with just the right amount of rock n' roll & country mixed together. If anyone who is friends with me actually still reads my lame updates, I would check out his music. I've discovered Leroy Powell, too. He plays with & writes songs for Shooter. Leroy is amazing. I've been listening to nothing but them.
I started working out today. I bought one of Jillian Michael's work-out DVDs. Um. That bitch is a beast. The 5 minute warm-up had me exhausted, for christsake. I am totally out of shape though so that's probably why. That's definitely why. Anyway, I did the warm-up & then about 10 minutes or so of the work-out & decided to stop. I haven't worked out in so long & to jump right into an intense 40 minute work-out (with Jillian Michaels no less) is probably a dumb idea. So I just ran for about 45 minutes & did some abs. I don't know why I don't work out regularly. It makes me feel so good afterward. I am really going to try my hardest to stick with it for at least 2 weeks, because I've heard after 2 weeks it becomes a habit. I wish it would. I am clearly out of shape & could afford to be a bit thinner, not to mention healthier. We'll see, anyway.
Right now though it's 2:45am & I have to be up in exactly 5 hours to babysit. I don't know why I do this.
It's March... ? But. It was just February. What. I feel like winter has gone by extremely fast. Next month it is going to be April - that is technically spring. Crazy. & awesome.
I'm watching Blue's Clues right now because I'm babysitting. I'm... loving.. it? Oh my god. It's entertaining solely because it's ridiculous, ok? No wonder why Steve went to rehab.
I went shopping yesterday. For 6 hours. It was the greatest therapy. I have come to the conclusion that I could literally live in Victoria's Secret. I just love that place. I love everything they sell, especially their underwear & lipgloss. Totally got 5 for $25 underwear, they're fabulous. I bought this awesome grey leather jacket, too, and leggings, 2 posters, and some lotions. I feel like I need to shop on a weekly basis.
It's going to reach 41 degrees today. HEAT WAVE.
It's 3:42 in the morning and I am being my usual nocturnal self.
I saw The Crazies
last night. Such a fucked up movie. Fucked up, but really great at the same time. It was a mixture of The Hills Have Eyes
and a movie like Quarantine
. On a scale from 1 to 10 Joe Anderson was so hot in this movie I just wanted to cry. He rocked THE sexiest mustache. Plus, he was in a police uniform the entire time, firing a gun like a bad ass. I can't think of anything better. Tim Olyphant, same goes for you, never stop being attractive. I would certainly recommend the movie.
Other than that, nothing has been happenin'. Besides the fact that I apparently live in fucking Alaska now since it hasn't stopped snowing for 4 days straight. Cool New York, I love you too.
Someone get me to a beach. Soon. With 'lots of alcohol.
I've been listening to so much hip-hop lately. For anyone who knows me that isn't a likely situation. I've been in a weird mood lately - a good weird mood, and I find hip-hop to fit well with said mood.
I ordered a t-shirt Saturday night that says "Enjoy Cocaine" on it. It shipped today, I'm so excited to get it. Hopefully my parents will be just as excited! /Wishful thinking.
I'm going to be starting a diet tomorrow. I don't like calling it that though - I really just want to start eating healthier and I need to start exercising. I don't think I'm fat, but I could afford to lose a few pounds and tone up. I want this ridiculously cute bikini that's at my work. It's lime green and black zebra print. I'm thinking of buying it now to give me motivation. I need to just be healthier in general, too. Wish me luck! Haha
Alright so it's 9:40pm, but still, Merry Christmas f-list! Enjoy this picture of Duff in the Christmas spirit.
Soooo I'm pretty sure I'm done updating this thing. I never have anything to talk about and I never talk to anyone on here anymore. You can defriend me if you'd like.
It's been fun.
I babysat for 9 1/2 hours yesterday. 9 1/2. That's inhumane. I made $90 though, so psh. I guess I should suck it up. I have $210 right now. I haven't had that much money, by making it myself, in like... ever.
I've come to the conclusion today that I love going to Flea Markets. I went and bought: A Led Zeppelin booklet (it was suppose to have four cassettes with it, but for some mysterious reason they were missing - the booklet was awesome enough though, so whatever), Eric Clapton: Unplugged cassette, Paul McCartney and Wings: Greatest Hits album, and a bad ass flannel shirt. The flannel shirt would probably look better on some 90 year old dude, but nonetheless IT IS BAD ASS. I spent under $10, too. Idek, I am pleased with how my day went, I gotta say.
I hardcore cleaned my room today, too. I basically tore my entire room apart and cleaned everything. Washed my sheets, too. I love clean rooms. My germaphobe tendencies were full blown today. I even showered twice. Shit.
I can't believe I have to go back to school in less than two days, >:[. I can't enjoy my Sunday either, because I have to spend it doing all my Intro To Lit. homework. I hate that class already and my first class isn't until Monday. Please tell me how that works? Right, it doesn't, but my teacher is the same for that class and College Comp (which I already took) so she decided to give us our homework for Monday's class.. over this break. Wooo bitch. (My procrastination may or may not have something to do with it, too, idk.) It's okay though because in two weeks I have another week off! Plus, my schedule for second semester is even more fabulous than my first semester one was. Every other day I have late arrival and I don't have to go to school until 9:15 :') Excited Lindsay is excited.
My New Year's resolution is going swell. I lost 5lbs, haha.
Alright, that's all...
Sweet Christ almighty, I am bored. However it's 12:12 in the morning, so really, what is there to do. But still.
I have this whole week off from school. FABULOUS. Well, I only had from Tuesday on, but I took Monday off. Dang, bad ass right here. As usual over any break, I've done nothing. Well, I've actually started my New Year's resolution.. a month late. I've realized only after two days, why I have waited so long. It's not so much working out, because oddly enough, I enjoy working out - it's the dieting part I dislike, haha. But it's about time I got serious about it, so oh well, I'll live.
I have to babysit tomorrow. And Friday. Possibly all day Friday. Like, 1 until 10. Cash moneyyyy. I have quite a "cart" on Amazon so I'll finally be able to buy some stuff. And! Buy a new phone. Which I am actually getting tomorrow. I'm switching to Verizon because T-Mobile's service is a drag. Also because everyone else in my family is on Verizon and it would be cheaper, monthly, for me to switch. I'm going to miss my Sidekick though. Kind of...
We're suppose to be getting between six and sixteen inches of snow (what a fucking bizzare gap. six or sixteen. apparently that ten inches is unsure of what it wants to do..) tonight/this morning. So far nothing has happened. Not that it matters, because I already have this week off from school, but I'm a fan of snow every now and then.
And that's where I'm gonna end things. I've got nothing else to talk about. Another boring post finished.
This Inauguration is one of the most emotional things I have ever watched. I've cried about five times. In school there were TV's everywhere showing it, and my principal was going around to every classroom making sure all the students were watching - I thought that was nice.
I came home early from school today, too. That was fantastic.
I have a huge presentation for College Comp tomorrow. I'm not really all that nervous for it, though. I know my topic really well, and my poster came out surprisingly nice. The only thing I'm worried about is using up all the time for the presentation. I was going to rent the "An Inconvenient Truth" DVD to show for part of it, because my topic is Global Warming, but since I'm the procrastinator that I am, I waited until yesterday to do anything about it and of course the library is closed on MLK Day. So far today, nobody has been around to take me. I don't necessarily need it though. I'll just talk really slow, haha. But! Another problem: my printer doesn't have ink - found that out today when I tried printing my paper. Sooo that's cool. After this presentation I've got nothing else to worry about school wise, though. Next week is break, too :)
Well, I guess I'll go figure out what I'm gonna do about that lack of ink in the printer...
