Being Girly

I went out and bought makeup today.

It was all make that I needed. I needed more make up cleaner, foundation, and eye cream.  I did not need brushes, but I splurged anyway.

I love these brushes, they make me look so fancy and I adore using them.

I’m sorry if this turns out to be a really short post.  I am exhausted and I am not feeling so great.  The pollen is coming out with the budding flowers and my allergies are on the run. Ick.

Stupid mono still left behind.

Feeling domestic

I feel like I need a string of pearls, an apron, and a very Donna Reed looking outfit after all the things I’ve been doing this weekend.

Amy Pond made it home yesterday afternoon.  I’ve been watching her and helping her with things.  We went grocery shopping and got lots of food.  I made dinner alst night, ran the dish washer, made breakfast this morning, made dinner again, put away dishes, did more dishes …

I feel extremely domestic.  It’s an interesting feeling, makes me think that maybe I’ll be better at being a mom than I think I will be.  Although, I know I’m going to be a good mom.  Four years of daycare teaches you something right?  And I love kids so much, they are the greatest.

Aside from feeling domestic, I’ve also done quite a bit of homework.  I did my reading response for math, I finished a worksheet for assessment.  I’m halfway done my annotated bibliographies.  I still need to work on my group project and study for my test, but otherwise…

This is looking like I’ve actually been productive this weekend… WHAT??

Domestic and Productive?  Could I be more happy about it?  Probably… but that’s because I’m still tired all the time.  Mono takes so much out of you.

I will try and post a story or a poem tonight, I swear I will.  It’s just so tough with everything going on.

Ugh…

I will go on.

I CAN DO IT!

BTW, I’m hoping for a good week.

Blogging from Places: Starbucks

Ah, I dos o love this place.  What place?  Starbucks.

Aside form the fact that the entire establishment smells of coffee and backed goods (two smells that I absolutely adore), it has some of my favorite drinks.  I know I’ve been cleared from my liver function tests, but I am concerned about a relapse since I haven’t been sleeping a lot.  Being in and out  of the ER and having my boy keep me up does not make for eight to ten hours of steady sleep.

Instead of my usual latte or mocha, I’ve got a mango smoothie.  It is fucking delicious.  It’s all fruit and protein powder and it makes me feel all good.  The only downside to this chilled drink is that if I take outside it’ll turn into a Popsicle.  It’s really good out and while many of my peers are choosing the warmer drinks, I like this.  It’s caffeine free and healthy.

Let’s see, on to other news…  Like I mentioned before, my liver function tests came back normal and therefore, I can engage in physical contact sports and activities, have caffeine, and alcohol.  Amy Pond is still in the hospital.  We do not know what is wrong wit her, we only know that she is miserable.  They’re running tests but nothing has come back.  I’m really worried about her.  It’s really scary.  I’m still writing in the story I mentioned, it went along with my muse poem.  It’s going slower, but it’s still moving.  I know I should edit (because my first drafts are usually so fucking wordy that I sit there with my red pen and go “how on earth did I write this?”), but I want to try and finis the second chapter before I do that.  Hopefully, I would finish the outlined chapters three and four before I started on edits, but I don’t know how well that would go.  Not that I don’t think I wouldn’t be able to write, it’s just getting to be that time of the semester when all my teachers dump work on my simultaneously.  Usually when that happens I stay awake at all hours and ignore everything, including my editing.  I am determined to get through this, at least through the rest of the chapter.  If I really want to edit after that, then I will.  Hopefully that will go alright….

On the list of things I need to do this weekend: text set, annotated bibliographies, worksheet for grading, reading response for math… Homework wise that is it I think.

OH!  So, my boy wasn’t in a great mood last night but he said he had a present for me.  I went and got it and it was necklace.  It’s pretty and sparkly and made of diamonds.  Not all made of diamonds, but just the charm.  🙂  He’s super nice like that.  🙂  He makes me feel very special (and not eat the paste special)

I think I need to try and finish this stupid kissing scene before I run to meet up with Mayzie la bird and … shit I don’t have a name for her!…. ummmmmm  The Jewelry Maker!  YES!

Mondays

Mondays are just my least favorite day of the week.  After the rest and relaxation of a weekend at home, Monday is a harsh reality.

I suppose not everyone feels this way about Mondays.  However, that’s my statement.

Mondays suck.

I’m doing everything I can to make them suck less (had a tasty lunch, writing, music) but there’s only so much you can do in the face of a weekday start.

Let’s hope that science class holds something of entertainment value, or I might just fall asleep.

OH!  RIGHT!

I got blood work done this weekend, so I should be hearing about my results some time this week.  I don’t know what the answer is going to be.  I feel so much better, but at the same time, I am absolutely exhausted.  It comes and goes…

I’ll see what I can do about perking up.  I’ve got company coming over tonight.  I’ve got a date tomorrow 🙂  and more plans on Wednesday.  I’m just a little social butterfly aren’t I?

Plenty of things to do, but an unwillingness to do them

As my title states, I have plenty of things to do.  i could start on that outline for reading.  I could make flashcards for Assessment.  I could do my giant amount of graph paper math homework.  I could do paperwork, or clean, or polish my nails because the polish is chipping.  However, all I want to do right now… is nothing.  Or … not really nothing, but just simple things like make my lunch and read my book.

I just started reading The Time Traveler’s Wife again.  I love this book.  This book is beautiful and gorgeous and I absolutely adore in a way that I cannot fathom.  I read it and the words almost sing to me.  That’s how much I love this book.  It also comes with some of my favorite quotes such as ” My apartment is basically a couch, an armchair, and about four thousand books.”  This quote is just… in a way, so picturesque without having to try.  I can easily imagine it.  A small place with a green velvet couch, a maroon colored armchair with coffee stains on it.  There are literally thousands of books.  Some on shelves, others stacked in piles on the floor.  Some hide underneath the chair and some lean on the legs of the couch.  It just sounds perfect to me.

Back to my unwillingness to do things.  I can’t tell if it’s the mono, the February Blahs, or just being lazy.  I just a math response so I feel a little bit less like a bum.  Now I need to make lunch and probably take a nap somewhere in there before I dive into the huge amount of homework that’s waiting.  It’s not huge, but I would rather start it now before things start getting crazy.

What I’d really like to try to do today is finish the first chapter of a story I started over the weekend.  I think I might be able to now, I just needed a little push or so.  Hopefully I will post it up here and see what you guys think.  But first, I need to send it off to my editor (Bass Man)  to see what he thinks.  It’s been a while since I’ve concretely tried writing anything.  I just end up feeling so bad about not finishing shit….

I would like to admit that I think I made the greatest playlist ever.   It just went from Chasing Cars to The Final Countdown.  I love it 🙂

Alright, so more on my rants, I really want some money to buy new clothes from Modcloth.  I am not usually in the mood to buy new clothes, but they are so cute.  There’s this sweater with the word lover on it in a little red heart.  Then there’s a red cotton skirt that would go with it along with some tights and my chucks.  There there’s these high rise jeans that look absolutely banging, that I could wear with the white polka dotted shirt or the black one or the green and yellow plaid.  Don’t get me started on the shoes, there’s a gray pair with subtle little faces on them and a yellow and white striped pair of flats and I want it all.  It’s really pricey though and I am ranting.

I think it’s time for lunch and nap.  Be back in a while, perhaps with a story or a poem!

Despite the drag, I triumphed

Well, last night actually turned out much better than I thought it would have in the long run, especially with how tired I was yesterday.  So after my dragging post, I went to class and actually had a really good time.  On Mondays I have a three hour science methods course with this really awesome teacher.  He’s super nice and super fun.  We were in the planetarium for the first two hours and we looked at the stars and it was was just… so amazing.  I’m reminded of how vast our world is when you look up.  It’s beautiful.

I digress.  After getting out of that class, I got back to the apartment with Amy Pond.  We were the only ones there (Azure skies was out and Hockey had not yet returned from her game).  So I proceeded to play more Arkham city (I took down two face as Catwoman) and started to make dinner.  Only I was waiting on my boyfriend, Call Me Maybe, and my other friend whom I am considering nicknaming 45…  So I cleaned and played show tunes and danced around in my apron while I made hot soup.  Call Me Maybe and 45 showed up and we all had a lovely time eating soup and talking and listening to music.  I was very happy to see all of them because I’ve been sick and they’ve been busy and I haven’t seen very much of them lately.

However, around eleven, like always I started getting sleepy.  So I went to bed and slept pretty well.

But today, today is already looking better.  I slept til my alarm.  It’s really difficult for me to do that.  I am unsure why, but it’s hard for me.  So I actually got a full ten hours of sleep.  THEN…. I found my second class of the day was cancelled.  YES!  Which means I only have to get through one class today and then I can come home and do all the things I need to do which includes (but is not limited to)

  • Tree Project for Science
  • Outline for Chapter Presentation
  • Admission Paperwork
  • Laundry
  • Dishes
  • Nap
  • Writing more in my little story
  • BLOG (Cause I actually have a wonderful broke rant I need to get on)
  • Clean
  • BE AWESOME

Alright, so that last one is just for me 🙂

IT’s raining here, so ere’s hoping I stay dry and can get through my one class without too much heartache.  Wish me Luck!

Dragging

Today, I am dragging.

Despite getting a lot of sleep, I still feel exhausted.  I know this is from Mono and the winter blues and the emotional hangover I’ve got from this funeral, but I am tired.  I’m tired of being tired.

I’m hoping by tonight I’ll be feeling better, because Call Me Maybe and a really good friend of mine are coming over since I’m making soup.  I really do just want to feel better.

Here’s hoping.

Finally, a real postIt

Hi everyone.

First off, I’m sorry I haven’t been updating much, if at all in this past week or so.  I’m finding it very hard to sit and write.  Probably because every time I sit down and relax I feel sleepy and then all I wish to do is sleep.  Mono is tough and to be fair, I’m doing as well as I can with it.  I’m going to all my classes and doing homework and being social and having a active relationship.  It’s all a lot of work and it leaves me really drained.  Then again, I’m always tired lately.  Just exhausted.  However, I can make it through this.

On another random note, I’ve been trying to eat healthier because for the first week or two of Mono, I had a swollen lymph node and it hurt to swallow everything.  So there was a lot of soft, still mostly healthy food.  However, I had no appetite.  Now… Now I can’t seem to stop eating.  I”m trying to aim for healthier foods, but it’s been a battle.  I’m not feeling… I mean, I still feel pretty and cute and everything, but I’m feeling a little pudgy and hopefully, making healthier snack choices will help my case.

Another note, my Nana (grandmother) passed away on Friday.  She was really sick and now she’s some place warm and happy.  I guess… I have a lot of mixed feelings about this one.  A lot of it is family and personal related, but there is one random thing.  I went out to see Hansel and Gretel Witch hunters last night (more on the movie in a  minute) and i needed a warmer jacket.  I ran and grabbed a green fleecey one I got for Christmas.  I got into the car and realized that the sweater was from my Nana and I didn’t send her a thank you card.  This seems strange and silly all at once  but it made me feel so sad.  I guess I miss her more.  I’m still unsure about when the funeral is, so that should be fun.

Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters was not the worst movie I’ve gone to see in a while.  But it wasn’t brilliant.  I enjoyed all the action battle scenes, the score (well done Hans Zimmer), and Jeremy Renner, who played Hakweye in the Avengers.  So it was a fun movie.  Me and the boy haven’t been out to a movie since break. I thought it was nice.  We had the whole theatre to ourselves and he hid me when the really gross parts came on.

I hate to leave you all, but I will really try to write again later, a prompt or a story idea or something.  I need to get ready for class.

Love to all and Don’t Forget To Be Awesome!

Update

Hi everyone!

So, I wanted to let you know that I am feeling a little more like a human and less like a zombie.  Which is a good thing, although I hear brains are very tasty.  None the less, i am recovering nicely, or well… as nicely as I can.  I still can’t do too much, but I can swallow, my lymph node swelling is going down, and my fever broke a few days ago.  Tonight I head back to campus after dinner.  Once there, I will most likely be happy, say hi to everyone, kidnap my boyfriend, and fall asleep there after.

In order to keep my sleep stores up, I had to drop two classes.  This bothers me a little bit, but I know I can handle my course load now.  I won’t be worrying about having six classes, just four.

If you’d like to know how I’m doing otherwise, I’m doing alright.  I’m tired a lot and it takes a lot of energy to do much.  I nap a lot and still manage to sleep like the dead.

Part of me is really excited for class tomorrow.  Not for any particular reason, but my brain works like this.  I like to have a schedule, a straight forward set of things to do and when to do them.  I excel in school because I have such a schedule.  I also keep looking forward to really little things like being able to put on make up in the morning.  I haven’t worn make up in over a week because I haven’t really needed it but I am looking forward to it.  Why?

It’s a ritual I have.  Wake up, shower, breakfast, hair, make up, clothes, out the door.  the ritual keeps me going and makes me feel a little less crazy I guess.  I also really really like make up.  It makes me happy.  🙂

OH!  YES!  I get to get coffee with Pretty in Pink tomorrow!  Which will be nice because I have also been craving coffee like a mad woman.  Part of my morning ritual I suppose.

Alright, I think I’m going to read some more and then shower and pack.
