Since I’ve been a bit MIA lately, I thought I would do a quick update about what’s been going on in my life recently.

1.  I’m now the proud owner of a pair of shiny adult braces…  Okay, I have a clear set so no shine but still.  Nothing says sexy like a mouth full of metal.  I’ve had them for a full two weeks now and I feel like I’m still getting used to them.  I was in pain for the first week and on a mostly liquids diet (and only manged to lose three pounds…  What the hell??!!).  I’m no longer in pain, but am still slow getting into foods I used to eat and constantly feel like there is too much going on in my mouth.  Only 102 more weeks to go!

2.  I start school in 17 days.  After going back and forth multiple times about whether or not I wanted to go back, I decided to go ahead, bite the bullet and do it.  I don’t really like my college (at all) and am still unsure as to what I want to be when I grow up…  Actually I know I want to be Donna (from the show Suits) when I grow up, but not sure what kind of major I need for that.  Here’s hoping school gets better and I can enjoy myself.

3.  Because I’m sticking with school I decided to stick with my job.  I try not to speak too openly about my feelings towards my job for a couple of reasons A)  I try to be grateful I have one in this economy and B) if anyone from my job were to read/hear my feelings, I would hate to risk losing said job.  However, I’m incredibly unhappy at this job.  There is a total lack of communication, no one that works there enjoys it, we are constantly working overtime and having our schedules changed at the last minute, oh and I break out in hives on a weekly (sometimes more often) basis thanks to this job.  Pretty sure that’s not a normal reaction.  But because it is third shift (another reason I dislike said job) it makes scheduling classes easier…  Attending not so much, but scheduling, yes.

4.  I’ve recently been shopping…  Like, a lot.  Maybe too much?  I keep telling myself I’m just preparing for fall and getting my wardrobe in order.  And I do make sure bills are paid first but I’m trying to do more adult things.  Things such as get a legitimate savings account going, not just $30 that I keep moving into my checking account.  Making a budget (and sticking to it).  And the big one, attempt to save for my own place.  I’m not talking buy a house, I’m nowhere near that, but a cute little apartment of my own would be beyond an amazing blessing.  Right now, I can’t so much afford that.  But I’m working towards it.  One step at a time.

I do believe that’s the majority of the updates from me.  Pretty sad that I’ve been gone so long and that’s it…  Hopefully my life picks up along with my school schedule in a few weeks.

Enjoy your weekend!  Go out and have a cold brewski 🙂



Happy Weekend Guys and Dolls!

Today I thought I would take a step back from fashion blogging and just put some of the random thoughts I’ve been having lately.  If you are not a fan of random, I apologize for this post.  If you do enjoy randomness…  Enjoy!

– I wrote a bucket list a few months ago and think I am going to post it on here.  I feel that if I put the list down on “paper” and post it where others can see it, it might just inspire me actually work on completing things on the list rather than just say “one day I hope to…  blah. blah. blah.”  I don’t want to look back and say, “I wish” about any aspect of my life.  Fingers crossed.

– A few days ago I wrote about the “day that should be forever erased from memory.”  Short story:  I was running late to class, found the first parking spot & lot, parked and ran into class.  When I came out of class, I discovered that it wasn’t the best parking spot.  I was blocked in and couldn’t leave until the people around me left.  It’s a big-ish campus with a lot of students, meaning I have no idea how long I will be stuck.  It was hot out, I was tired and hungry and just wanted to run home before my next class.  I sat there for an hour before my guardian angel walked by and helped me out by moving a fence…  After laughing chuckling at me first.  If I wasn’t in such a hurry to get out of there I may have made out with him.

– Okay, I lied here is a fashion thought.  I really hope to challenge myself this season.  I want to find one fashion trend that scares the bajeezus out of me (ie:  colored denim, bright graphics or a bright red lip) and try it out.  Maybe see if I actually like some things outside of my comfort zone.  So I need to spend some time researching trends for this fall and see what scares me most 🙂

– When I started this semester of school I had 18 credits.  Before my first class, I decided to drop a yoga class and went down to 17 credits.  After my first week of class I dropped chemistry until a later semester.  I still have 13 credits and am considered a full time student.  I still have plenty of hard courses to keep me busy (statistics, anatomy, developmental psychology, strength & conditioning) but “only” having 13 credits kind of makes me feel like a bum.  I am also working full time…  But I still feel a little lame.

– Hockey is starting up in less than a month!  Yes, the NHL is still in talks and may be locked out for a season (hopefully less) but I am an ECHL fan and our first pre-season game is Oct. 5th.  It’s so close I can almost smell the ice and I’m stoked!  Go Cyclones!

– I am starting the equally exciting and terrifying search for an apartment.  Whenever I find a place, it will be my first solo living situation.  In my 25 years of life, I have always lived with one of my parents.  It is so exciting to be able to think about being on my own, but also  super scary knowing that I will be on my own.  I have a call in to a place that is right across the street from school and I’m really, really hoping it works out, keep your fingers crossed for me?

– Finding a church is hard work!  I found a place I loved when I moved to Idaho right away.  I thought when I moved back here I would just go back to where I grew up.  It didn’t quite work out that way and now I’m trying to find my new “home” but it is so much harder than I ever thought it would be.

I think that’s all the random-ness I will dish out on you guys at this time.  I have more but I don’t want to lose any followers!  I will save those for a different random posting.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
