things are lookin' up [02 Oct 2006|04:45pm]
[ mood | hungry ]

i can put my hair in a ponytail and keep it there with just a little help from bobbypins. not much longer and i wont need them. don't get all worked up about it or anything, i'm just saying. no more short hair for a while. at least.

i'm going to buy my plane ticket on wednesday!

oh boy, here it comes. [28 Sep 2006|12:29pm]
[ mood | cracked out on caffeine. ]

i think i had too much coffee. i kind of have a headache.i wish it was the end of october rather than september. i have plans to be up in bellyham for a couple of days...and then after that it would only be a few days until i go to SAN DIEGO... it would be great if it was the end of october. however, i don't want it to be mid-november. that is when the missing starts again.

'to do' list for bellingham:

1. cap's! (ruganzu, you best be in town)
2. OLD TOWN!! this girl needs a tofu scramble and some sacred grounds.
3. ...
4. haircut

more to come!

new roomie! [27 Aug 2006|09:27pm]
[ mood | optimistic ]

i just met with the boy who is **probably going to be my new roommate.
i was thinking he might be gay, but i found out that he is not. he is cute. and nice. and australian. stacy, he is a cancer... sorry.

we seems to get along, and he has seemingly good taste in music. i think this will be fun.

damn.

oh, and gwenny likes him too.




**probably: meaning "most likely"
he just needs to fill out an application.

tonight i'll sing my songs again [13 Aug 2006|10:25pm]
[ mood | calm ]

i have my apartment. my apartment rules. i signed the lease, i have the keys.

it isn't in seattle. ha!

i'm great with this.

today ruled at life.

so. [02 Aug 2006|12:28pm]
[ mood | frustrated ]

i have the opportunity to move into this place on mercer island. i need to decide today or tomorrow. i don't kow if i really want to. for various reasons.

i want to live in the city. despite the fact that the commute to work will be a monster of a bitch. i want to live by myself. in a particular studio on lower queen anne. i would need to budget $800/mo to do so. is that crazy?

i need to hash this all out with someone who isn't biased (even though they claim they aren't) and wants me to live on the island.

warm and fuzzy feelings about work (not sarcastic. no, seriously) [29 Jun 2006|11:27pm]
[ mood | excited ]

I've been at my new job for about a month now.

In this short amount of time I've learned a lot. I'm in a job where I feel that even though I haven't been doing it that long, I'm good at what I do. I'm only going to get better. I'm also in a job where it is acknowledged that I am doing a good job. An excellent job. I am told this. To my face. By my boss. The adverse would be true as well, let's be real for a second.

Tonight closed with her (my boss). During a conversation that started with me asking her to maybe remind some people of when needs to be done (after I had done it myself the night before), she told me that I was in a company where no matter what your position is, if you see something, you say something. Okay, yeah, I did that. I "used my best judgment" (my only official rule I need to follow, ha ha).But I ended up telling her about my "concerns" about a co-worker, blah blah, and she backed me up on what I was feeling, and told me that i have "natural leadership qualities" (surprise?) among other things.

But the really cool thing about our conversation was that after asking me about what department I was interested in working in at the main line, she told me that she had told the store manager that she had wanted ME as her assistant manager (we don't have one right now). However, she can't have me because I don't have main store experience.

SO. The ONLY thing that is keeping me from being the assistant manager of my department is that i started at the Rack and i don't have any "main line" experience. deeeeaaaaamn. But having this conversation with her made me feel so much better about a lot of things, and that even if I can't be the ASSistant manager now, she wants me to be one, and she wants to help me get there. I'd make shit ton more $$.

uuumm... my work rules. weird.

marines. [19 Jun 2006|12:40pm]
my sister just forwarded me a video of ian's platoon. it's creepy how those boys all look a like...if ian hadn't been standing in the top corner, blinking like a moron...i'm not sure i would've been able to pick him out. my sister actually told me the location of him in the group, and i still wasn't sure that it was him at first. weird.

they all looked so sad.

i'm glad he'll be home at the end of the month (even if it's for only ten days), because i have mass amounts of shit talk that i have to catch up on. seriously.

I'm in trouble.

i've felt the power of my discount at work. and i liked it. it wasn't my fault though! i needed new clothes...for work.

i'm worried that my roommate situation is going to fall through (no drama, no bad blood)...it's just that everything about it is stressful. let a girl know if you have any useful information on apts/people who need a roommate and are looking/people who need a roomate for a space in ther place. DTLZ, PLZ + THX.<---that was for you, maegan.

do you know your size? have you been measured? [12 Jun 2006|12:33pm]
[ mood | hungry ]

i came home from work last night and took off my shoes. the toes on my right foot were bloody. it was both alarming and gross. working all day on your feet is nothing new to me, but i haven't had a job where the shoes you worked in had to be fancy. my cute, pointy, black kitten heels are a little bit of a bitch to wear for more than five hours...eight hours when you're running around constantly is a wee bit too much for this old girl.

work yesterday was only hellish because of:

1) my feet hurt like hell

and

2) i was soo sleepy from the late night before (stacy, your 2nd annual "wine and tequila" gathering was sweet. so was the dance party we went to afterward. you should've danced more).

working so much is both a blessing and a pain in the ass. i never really thought that i'd miss bellingham so... not in the "i want to move back there" sense, but i wouldn't mind having a weekend day off so i could go see some people.

that tie matches your eyes...buy it. [25 May 2006|08:52pm]
[ mood | satisfied ]

for my new job, i will be working sales in the men's department of the nordstrom rack. selling clothes to men, particularly men who don't enjoy shopping (haha), will be enjoyable and easy. now i have an excuse for wearing hott shoes everyday... and an excuse for buying clothes for myself.

depending on the hours, i may also take that barista position. it would perhaps be foolish to pass up on the opportunity to flirt with attractive doctors on a daily basis...

that is all.

oh fuck...i'm fucked. [18 May 2006|02:52pm]
[ mood | annoyed ]

fuck.

[ mood | thirsty ]

i spent the better part of my afternoon getting... and being... drunk.

icedgrandenonfatvanillalatte!!!!!!! [03 May 2006|12:26pm]
[ mood | excited ]

i congratulated myself by paying for coffee. it was tasty.

i'm going to have one of those grown-up jobs where you get benefits and a 401K and ass-loads of monies. okay, maybe not ass-loads, but a decent amount. and i'll still have weekends off. and i have an apartment lined up for june first. and my roommate is nice. and now i might have extra monies to buy furniture or a computer or something.

um, i'm kind of stoked.

so sour... you'll pee your pants [18 Apr 2006|04:44pm]
[ mood | intimidated ]

tyler and i are going to get a bag of really sour candies, stick as many in our mouths as we can and see who can hold out the longest. whoever wins, tyler says will be the "extreme sour machine."

nice dreamz [12 Apr 2006|09:40am]
[ mood | pensive ]

it is raining outside. harder than i've seen it rain in a while. which for some reason is kind of refreshing. perhaps it is because i had an unsettling dream last night that involved old drama. all i will say about it is that it was one of those dream within a dream dreams where i thought i had woken up from it and was relieved to do so, and i even went out on the deck to get some fresh air...but then i woke up fo' real.

i don't think i'm going to bellingham this weekend.

sunny days are nice and all... [04 Apr 2006|02:23pm]
[ mood | bored ]

it is only tuesday? i need a drink. or several.

you are a smart little bunny, said the teacher. [03 Apr 2006|10:46am]
[ mood | awake ]

I think it may be time to add to my employment repertoire. watching this kid ain't rackin' in enough scrizzle. i'm in the mood for something mindless and only a couple nights during the week, perhaps the video store down the street is hiring. shit, i'm going to have to watch more movies though....

my plan for today though is to stay caffinated sos i can go get pho tonight with maegan! ah, all this coffee makes me feel the most awake i've felt in quite a while.
