I've been down and out the last couple of days. Around 3 on Tuesday afternoon, i pulled a muscle or something in my neck. I'm not sure how it happened, i was only doing laundry! None the less, it was terrible. Absolutely terrible. I went into work that night, but left around midnight because the pain was so intense. I went to wal mart real quick to grab some heat patches, but they didn't work and left red welts all over my neck. So, that was lovely. I woke up tuesday afternoon, and it felt like the pain had been multiplied by about 400 million. I couldn't turn my head at all. It was totally excruiating. So, yesterday i stayed all doped up on tylenol and aleve and layed on the couch the entire day.

Nathan came over to keep me company for a while. And he brought this with him
Party Down. Season 1. I had mentioned something about this show to him just a couple of days ago. I read about it in a people magazine, and wanted to watch it because it had Martin Starr in it. I loved him sooooo much in Freaks and Geeks. One of Nathan's friends ended up having it, so he brought it over. AND I LOVED IT. It's really funny, but yesterday i was too sore to laugh at anything. If you like Arrested Development, then i really think you should check out this show. It's great!!!

And, today i feel sooooo so so much better. And that's a good thing, because i can't afford to miss work again tonight. I think Martin Starr, Party Down, HGTV, and the Cosby Show cured me. That's about the only thing i've done the last two days. Oh well. Whatever works!

I think i might have been an interior designer in my past life. Or, maybe i just want to be an interior designer in my current life. It seems like the only thing i can ever think about is decorating. I love scowering flea markets, thrift stores, and peddler's malls for cute little knick-knacks and what-nots to decorate with. I really think that it's one of my most favorite things to do.
So, for the life of me i cannot figure out why i'm so uninspired to decorate my new house. My budget is obviously a lot more limited now,( 95% of everything i have is thrifted anyways, so money really isn't my concern) but every chance i get i pick up little things here and there. Bring them home. Set them up. And i instantly feel like something is missing. To be honest, it's really starting to drive me crazy. I have hardly touched my bedroom. I've done nothing in there but change the sheets a few times. I have pictures that i painted just sitting in the floor, collecting dust while they're just waiting for me to hang them. I'm struggling because my room isn't set-up the right way. It's pretty small and i have a couple of really big pieces of furniture. I can't figure out a way to rearrange things at all. I know i can only rant and rave so much, but i'm at the point where i literally want to pull all of my hair out!
Lots of things inspire me, but somehow it's hard for me to translate it into my every day life. I have to figure out my problem, right now, before i literally lose my brain.
If you folks have any feedback, tips, tricks, solutions, please share.

not really looking forward to this day.

100th post!

What an exciting day in my tiny little corner of the internet. This is my 100th post on this fancy little blog! Had i kept up with it more when i first started, i'm certain that i would be much further along than this, but no regrets! 
I figured i would make this a little introduction post. I've never done one before, and this seems like the perfect time, so why not!

I started this blog a pretty good while ago. At first i used it for little writings that i dreamed up every now and again, but for nothing personal. Then i decided i would start talking crafts on here but i felt very intimidated by all the 37 million AMAZING craft blogs that are already out there and that i read daily. So, i took a big break because i felt really uninspired, and eventually i started back up and just talked about my day to day life. Nothing really exciting. I've been trying to blog very regularly for the last couple of months, and my daily ramblings about anything and everything seem to be working. So, here we are! 100 posts down!

I guess a little general info about is in order.
  • I live in a fairly small town. Somerset, Ky to be exact. There isn't a lot of fun things going on around here. I don't really like this place, but i don't exactly hate it either.
  • I work a middle of the night shift at Walgreens. It's probably the last thing that i would ever chose to do. It's not at all glamorous or fun. I gotta make that $$$$ somehow.
  • I live with my best friend April and her boyfriend Chris. We cook dinner at home almost every single night. It's a lot like Three's Company, except Chris doesn't have to pretend to be gay around our landlord. Who is never around anyways.
  • I date my other best friend, Nathan. This summer we'll have been together for 2 years. We both agree that it feels a little more like six. I think it's because we've been really close since our earliest high school days. 
  • I love reading blogs, and so everyday. I love when people follow me, because 9 out of 10 times, i always follow back because i get new reading material!
  • I don't think i have a favorite food, because i love almost everything. My favorite color is kelly green. I love Harry Potter A LOT. LOST is my favorite current TV show but i really love the classics. I'm right-handed. I don't like to dress up. I'm 21. My birthday is in November.
  • I have a lot of hobbies. I feel like i'm mediocre at lots of things, but i haven't something that i'm exceptionally good at.
  • I love yard sales, junk stores, thrift shops, goodwill, peddler's mall. I want to be anywhere that sells cute junk. 
  • I am obsessed with bargains and i have a really hard time buying anything that isn't on sale if it's anymore than $10 bucks. Sad, i know. 
Ok. There was a bunch of random facts that i'm sure you guys were just DYING to know. I'm very thankful for my followers. I only hope that you guys continue to follow while i continue to post. You're the best!

ps. i know there is probably a million typos scattered throughout this post, but i am too tired to correct them. sorry!

I cannot begin to tell you fine folks how exhausted i have been for the last week. I'm sleeping plenty, my daily routine hasn't changed any, i'm eating better foods, just not as much. I don't know what the deal is, i've just been so tired. I must snap out of it! Immediately!

Tomorrow, well later today rather i start my workout adventures. I'm excited, nervous, scared, anxious, a little bit of everything, i guess. It's really important for me to stick to my plans and get in better shape. I'm going to be really upset and disappointed with myself if i get into a good workout/fitness regimen and then just stop one day. I just figure it's now or never, and i'm going to work as hard as i possibly can to look fly in a pair of jean shorts this summer and not worry about how fat and floppy i think my legs look. Whether they do or not.

I think my biggest challenge is going to be eating healthier foods that are actually affordable and for everyday people. I'm a real woman, and i'm used to eating real food. I don't eat couscous with chickpeas, black beans and guacamole(nothing is wrong with this!) but I eat fried chicken, hamburgers, potatoes, and tacos. It's just what i'm used to. I'm not real sure how to eat healthy, i guess. However, i am not giving up. I will figure it out. There is no stopping me! No way, no how!

Inspiring photos to get in shape for summer time.
I can't wait.
Wish me luck!

new adventures.

I'm really wanting to get in shape. It's not something i just decided yesterday, it's been on my mind for months and months and months, and now i think i've decided it's the right time to get to work on this. I think i'm in the right frame of mind, i have a goal as motivation. So, last night i took the first steps on getting into better shape. After browsing around the workout aisle in wal mart for a while, i decided i was completely dumb when it comes to working out, and i have no idea what to do. So, i decided to get a workout dvd.
A Kim Kardashian DVD
I have no idea whether this is going to work or not. Hopefully it does because i see no trouble whatsoever in obtaining a beautiful backside and fitting into smaller jeans in a week. So, i bought the video as well as some weights, a jump rope, and some healthier foods to keep around the house.

I do plan on putting a lot of effort into this. So, i'm going to try to weekly document my successes or failures along the way. If any of you have any adivce or tips i would love to hear from you. I honestly have no idea what i'm doing. I'm just trying. I'm not really even trying to lose weight. I'd just like to tone up and lose inches. I don't own a scale, so the numbers don't even matter to me. I'm more concerned about being healthy and feeling better.

Do any of you guys work out on a regular basis? If so, what exercises do you guys do? I'd love to know all of the advice that you have. Wish me luck, i'm starting monday!

catching up.

Today is all about catching up for me. I'm doing laundry, blogging, cleaning, watching lost, and knitting(hopefully).
We've lived in our new house for about a month and half now, and i haven't done a single thing in my bedroom. I have no idea why. I've had big plans for it all along, i just haven't felt motivated to work on it whatsoever. It's pretty small area and i haven't figured out a way to arrange my furniture yet. I only have my bed, a bookshelf and my gigantic yarn storage system thing. We like to to call it the yarn wall. Everything is a jumbled up mess in there right now. So, here is some pretty pictures for you, and hopefully some inspriration for me.
I like these rooms a lot because there are lots of things to look at. I want a room with a lot of spunk and personality. I really just need to stop thinking and start doing!

I've got clean linens that i need to get in the dryer so they can go on bed. Then i think i'll hang up some pictures.
Also, i ordered a pizza from the pub earlier. Mind you, the pub is 5 minutes from my house. I ordered the pizza at 6:14. It's now 7:32. And my boyfriend is the delivery pizza guy. I hope he doesn't treat all his customers like this! I'm starving, like x 4785893475983475!!!

Gotta get to work!

word to the wise

Don't wait until April 7th the file your taxes. And if you must wait until April 7th, do yourself a favor and file them with a tax filer lady or gentlemen, and not online. I was completely heinous all day yesterday because my stupid taxes were stressing me out so much. But, i finally got them filed. I woke up this afternoon, checked my email only to find that my FEDERAL AND STATE RETURNS HAD BEEN REJECTED BY THE IRS. Ok, after a brief panic attack, i got my head on straight, and followed the links provided in the email and fixed my problem. Turns out i got a number jumbled up somewhere along the way, and now it's fixed. SHEW.

I'm making a promise to myself. 
I will never file my taxes this late in the year ever again.
And i won't file them on the internet anymore either, because it's too easy for me to make mistakes.
From here on out, i'm sticking with the professionals.
like this guy!

I hope you guys are having a stress-free day. And i also really hope that you've already filed your taxes.

Yesterday was spent trying to mentally prepare myself for the terrible work week that lies ahead. One of my coworkers is taking a couple of vacation days at the end of this week, and because of that, i'm apparently supposed to pick up the slack for both of us.
This is my schedule for this week.
Monday- OFF!
Tuesday- 9pm-4am.
Wednesday- OFF!
Thursday- 9pm-4am
Friday- 10pm-8am
Saturday- 10pm-8am
Sunday- 9pm-4am
It comes out to only being 32 hours for the week, which is totally fine. But i'm working 20 of those hours in 2 days, which is totally not kind of fine. It's going to be so exhausting.

Me and Nathan enjoyed a little date night yesterday. We haven't been able to go out or do anything in forever, it seems. It's conflicting work schedules, lack of money, and when we do have time, we're too tired and i'd rather just sit on the couch and watch tv instead of going out. It was really nice to get out and enjoy some time with him. Yesterday was a really beautiful and hot day. We ended up going to get some food and watching Hot Tub Time Machine afterwards. I wanted to watch it, because i love LOVE John Cusack, and i thought it would be funny. I think Nathan ended up liking it more than me, but i just wasn't into it. I did laugh a few times, but it just wasn't for me.

Also, i'd really like to take a vacation this summer.
my backyard would work too.
ahhh, camping!

Hoppy Easter!

I hope everyone is having a Happy Easter! Easter is necessarily a holiday i celebrate, but i'm having a good day anyways.
April cooked an enormous feast this afternoon(i wish she would have woke me up to help!)and it was completely delicious. So, me and the roomies had our very own Easter-ish lunch. We had planned on going over to the Peddler's mall this afternoon, i had a sneaking suspisicion that it would be closed, and after we drove all the way across town, it was definitely closed. So, we went on down to the flea market instead. I didn't find any goodies, which always bums me out. April and Chris did pick up quite a few movies though.

Last night i had a dream that i was checking my blog, and my dashboard said i had 86 followers. I wish! I want to make new interweb blog friends, i'm just not real sure how. I don't really want to pimp myself out, but i would enjoy having some new followers, and i would enjoy following some new people!

I have to work tonight. I'm definitely not looking forward to that at all, especially after the nightmare that was last night. I get so incredibly fed up when i'm spending hours, working my tail off, not getting to take my breaks because there is so much to do, and my "boss" and coworkers are allowed to go outside 5 different times to take ten minute long smoke breaks. And i always have to stay inside, (not that i smoke anyways)and continue to work. That REALLY grinds my gears. You know what i'm saying? Shew!

I guess i'll go chill out for a while before work. Take a load off. It's really hot out today.
Catch you folks later!

Work was totally and completely horrendous this evening. It felt like i did the same thing over and over for hours, and i wasn't having any fun while doing so. Also, i think it's pretty safe to say that every looney toon in town decided to come out to Walgreens tonight. There was the weird old dude that wanted to talk me about 'As Seen on TV' products for literally 30 minutes, the couple who were completely covered in nasty, trashy tattoos and wanted to talk to me about my 'tatz', an over agressive man who kept telling how he was going to fight someone, the lady who paid for her entire transaction in dimes. It was complete madness, ALL NIGHT!

I'm so very glad to be home.
For the last few nights i've been watching Freaks And Geeks. If you have not seen this show, you have to go rent it, buy it, look it up on the internet, netflix it, you have to do something! It's a real work of art.
I never watched this show when it originally aired, and i'm glad i didn't. I would have been way too young to enjoy it. It's so relatable to every day people. I absolutely adore this show. It was canceled after the first season, which is really unfortunate. That happens with all the really good shows, just like My so-called life.You will fall in love with Jason Segel and Martin Starr's characters, they are just too sweet for life!  I recommend this show to every single person alive. It's just that good!

But, it's ten after 5. And that means it's bedtime.
Goodnight blog world!
