Monday Lustday Series, Edition 11

Today I am lusting over items that I bought on BF.
I got everything I wanted, and I love it all!

For instance,
my beautiful brown suede boots :)

And my awesome new diamond ring :)

My new DVD's make me happy too, but I'm not going to find pictures for all of them.

I have two thoughts to leave you with: 

1.  Slatted Deck > New Stiletto Boots :(
Holes should not be where you walk...

2.  I really could care less about Bedlam and I'm sick of hearing about it. 
I guess I'm just not a good Okie...

Until next time,

30 Posts of Truth, Edition 16

Prompt #16: Something or someone you could definitely live without.

Something I can live without is caffeine.  
Although I have a lot less energy than I used to, I don't even crave caffeine anymore.

I've been clean for 20 months now.
Yes, I realize I just made it sound like I was an addict--I mean I only had like two pops a day, but

On another note, I got everything I wanted on Black Friday, plus some!
I got my gorgeous brown hooker boots, 9 DVD's, and upgraded my diamond ring.

Here's a picture of Cassie and I camping out at Target:

Andrew, Cassie, and I were waiting outside for over 7 hours!  We're serious shoppers.
We got everything we wanted and were back in bed by 6 am :)

30 Posts of Truth, Edition 15

Prompt #15: something or someone you couldn't live without, because you've tried living without it.

Most people would probably name a person who they couldn't live without, but I don't depend on people, so I'm not going to do that.

The thing I couldn't live without would definitely be sleep.  
If I am lacking on sleep I get cranky CRAZY. 

It works in three stages:
1.  I start zoning out.
2. I start laughing at everything and my sentences make no sense.
3.  I get angry--everything annoys me. lol

On another note, I bought a new camera today! I love it! 

Also, I have my BF (Black Friday) plans nailed down--it's almost game day, baby!

Until next time,

Prompt #14: A letter to a hero that has let you down

Dear Lance Bass;

          When NSYNC first became popular, I was immediately your fan.  While the other girls flocked to Justin, I adored you.  You had the perfect smile, perfect hair, and you were just so darn cute.  Not to mention, you could sing!  I bought your CDs the day they came out, I bought the Lance Bass doll, I had your poster hanging in my room, and I even went to your concert in Dallas.  I was in love--you were my first love.

          My brother used to always joke that you were gay--he would mercilessly mock you, and force me to tears.  I avidly denied it and proclaimed your greatness.  One day, my world came crashing down; it was the day you came out of the closet to the public.  Andrew told me, but I still didn't believe him, I told him it was all lies.  I soon came to realize that Andrew wasn't lying, nor were the tabloids.  You were gay.  I no longer stood a chance with you because you were playing for the other team.  My heart was broken.  

         Thank you Lance Bass, for being gay and breaking my heart.  You shattered the dreams of a little, 10 year old girl.  You should feel proud.

Meanwhile, my gay-dar still seems to be broken....

Until next time,

As graduation approaches, I have been reminiscing about the past three and a half years.
For a lot of the memories, all I have to say is, "what was I thinking?!"  

For instance:

I won't lie, after watching Phelps take nearly every possible gold medal in the Olympics, I found myself on the Phelps bandwagon. 
I even remember saying I'd marry him--if he got his teeth fixed.

Well folks, it appears his teeth have been fixed, but that face just doesn't appeal to me anymore.
Michael, I don't care how many strokes you can do in a minute, or that you can do the butterfly like nobody's business...I no longer have any desire to marry you.

However, you better believe I will be cheering for you from my couch during the next Olympics.

I have many other "what was I thinking" moments, but because I'm never sure who reads my blog, I will refrain from posting them. 

Next up: 30 Posts of Truth--a letter to a celebrity who let you down.

30 Posts of Truth, Edition 13

Post #13: A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough days (write a letter).

Dear Kellie Pickler,
Your songs "Best Days of Your Life" and "Red High Heels" have gotten me through some really tough days.  

You quick wit and empowering lyrics have overtaken me at times.

I won't lie, after break ups, I generally crank "Best Days of Your Life" up in my car and belt it out at the top of my lungs.  
It feels good to know (well, at least think) that a guy will regret losing you and will never find a girl as good as you.  
He will especially regret losing you when he sees you in your red high heels, leaning on another guy.

Kellie, please keep producing amazing songs like these, because guys never cease to amaze me with their unending stupidity and I will undoubtedly be belting out your songs for many, many years.

Until next time,

Life Lessons From Class, Edition 5

Today, I learned two important things.

1. Everything is relative.  
For instance, some things are better leased than bought. 

2.  Google stores EVERY inquiry you have ever searched.  Forever. 
If you google how to kill your husband, then erase your hard drive to rid the evidence, the FBI can still contact Google and Google will provide them with every search you've ever conducted. 
Creepy, huh?

3. Equity fires=easy insurance fraud.
I learned that if you light dryer sheets on fire beside curtains (which must be by an outlet), your house will burn down due to what appears to be, at electrical fire. 
The dryer sheets disintegrate in the fire, leaving no plausible explanation for the fire.  
Because it will have started by the outlets, they will assume it was an electrical fire.

*I am not encouraging you to try this, or recommending you do this; I'm merely sharing information I learned in class.
If your house burns down and they can prove you read this, you will probably be arrested.

Graduation is Just Around the Corner

This quote summarizes how I feel right now:

“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.”
— Anatole France

I'm not quite sure how I feel about being a grown-up, but I better figure it out soon because in 30 days, I will be a full fledged "Big-Girl."

By the way, if one more person asks me what I'm going to do when I graduate, I just might tell them to mind their own business scream.  
Seriously though.

30 Posts of Truth, Edition 12

Prompt #12: Something you never get compliments on 

I don't recall ever getting compliments on my arms or my ears.  
But then again, I don't think I've given anyone compliments on their arms or their ears.  

What a weird compliment..."You have really pretty ears." 
Unless I'm in some really weird version of Little Red Riding Hood, I really don't think I'll ever hear that compliment. lol

30 Posts of Truth, Edition 11

Prompt #11: Something people seem to compliment you the most on.

I would say I get the most compliments on my smile and/or hair.

Please don't take this as me being conceited--I'm merely answering the question at hand.

Stay tuned for my next Truth post!  
Sneak Peak: it's the opposite of this post.

Prompt #10: Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn't know

I need to let go of my former love, Marty Standish.

He was a hockey player for the Blazers.
I was in love with him.
I actually met him a few times and he even threw me a hockey puck one time (which symbolized his returned love for me). 

The saddest day of my life was the day he got married.  
He married a tall, dark haired woman--the opposite of me.  

Soon after the marriage, he got traded to another state.

I need to move on and love again.  It's just so hard.

Although, Chris VandeVelde might just be the trick (a new player for the Baron's).

Note: Although most of this post was true, I may have over-exaggerated my emotions just a tad.
Or maybe I didn't--you'll never know ;)

Until next time,

Monday Lustday Series, Edition 9

Item #1: 

"Letters to Juliet" on DVD.  
I absolutely love this movie!

Item #2:

L.C.'s new book, because I just love her :)
I need this in hardback so it will match the rest of the books in the series (which I have).

On another note, I have once again been reminded that I have too much faith in people.  
Some people just don't possess important traits like dignity, honesty, integrity, and motivation.
This proves to be one of my biggest annoyances. 

Soon to come: 30 Days of Truth Post!!

Until next time,
