I am so damn hungover. I've puked twice but haven't eaten anything since noon yesterday. I've been throwing up water. It's so nasty.

So today when I got home I saw that my mom had gone through my room looking for something and happened to look in my hiding spot for my vibrator. Oh god. That is just weird and uncomfortable.

I had loads of fun last night. Made a new friend :) A new hott friend. Haha.
We went to some crazy hardcore show and I got kicked out because I snuck in a pbr and they don't sell them there, plus I was underage. Haha.

Went and hung out in the garage for a while.... Good times.

Well let me just start by saying The Faint was amazing! I don't think I've had that much fun in quiet a while. I was dancing my ass off!! Sooo many hott guys at the show too. It was nice to just get outta town for a while and go to Lawrence.

Work has been going good... Getting used to it, getting quicker at everything, enjoying the job in general. I see someone I know at least once a day it seems, but I do work at the mall so not that weird.
Speaking of work, yesterday my boss went to QT to get a newspaper and got us all scratch lotto cards and I won freaking $20! I was so excited.

Last night me and Amy went and saw I <3 The Huckabees. It was really good. It was one of those movies that makes ya think but in a good way. I'd definitely like to see it again. The people behind us in line kept calling it I Love the Huckbees and it was kind annoying me.

I'm so excited for tonight!! PARTY TIME!! I'm really excited to get all dressed up in my costume. Especially after all the money I spent on it. I'ma be lookin hott! Heck yeah. I'm gonna take lots of pictures too! Oh and we get an extra hour to party, how cool is that??

I'm excited to vote on Tuesday!

So today after I work I went shopping for my Halloween Costume and spent way too much money but got some really hott stuff! That Halloween Express place had some awesome shit! I'm pretty excited for Halloween now. I usually don't get into the holiday spirit. Not really looking forward to the Christmas season, especially not at work! Ugh.
Two days til The Faint! I'm ready.

So anyway, here's a little sneak preview of my costume!

I fell in love with these shoes right away!

I let my male mannequin try on my wig and mask.

I don't know why I got the mask... It doesn't really have anything to do with my costume but I thought it was hott so I got it anyway. I love it.

Just had to throw a picture of my angel in there! ha.

So my weekend was good. Stayed in Friday night and slept after an insane day at work.

Hung out with the gals on Saturday. Went to a "spook" house in Newton. It was kinda scary. Okay, yeah I was screaming and running through it like a baby. The thing crawling on the floor at the end rolling beauty school mannequin heads towards us was not scary. The guy with the Michael Myers mask slowly walking towards was scary as crap! I don't think I really like being scared...
Anyways did that, did a lot of drinkin beer and chatting. Got into my first bar! Even though it was only 18 to enter, it was kinda cheating but I was excited.

Did Stacey and Jessica's hair last night. I miss doin hair as much as I used to... Time to take that damn stateboard test.

Today at work the lady from the health department came in. She was scary and mean. I tried to stay away because I didn't really know what the hell I was doing. Good news is we passed. I guess that's all that really matters. She wants us to take some food handling class. No thanks.

Oh and I made my grandma go to the doctor today and she said that there is nothing wrong with my grandma... So no stroke I guess? I mean they didn't really test her for that but they said the insurance won't cover it unless she has pretty good symptoms. So I'm just gonna hope she's alright for now.

Welp that's it for now. Hurry up Friday!

Today at work a woman asked to use our scissors. She was opening a box with a huge Chuckie doll in it for her maybe 2 year old that was in a stroller. It was really weird. She said that he is obsessed with Chuckie and Elmo. What the fuck is she doing letting a little kid watch Chuckie? I was like- damn that kid is crazy! I'm scared of Chuckie!

So my first real week of work went well. I like my job quiet a bit. It's cool working at the mall because I see people I know quiet a bit... BTK is creepy though. He just comes to the mall everyday and walks around ALL day. What the heck? Man I can't wait til next Friday! My first paycheck<3. I'm gonna try not to go too crazy. First thing I have to do is get stuff for my Halloween Costume. I kinda wanna go shoppin up in Lawrence too.

Last night was Tora! Tora! Torrance! And the lead singer! is hott!! Damn... I think I was drooling last night. Ha. I had a pretty good time. I never go to shows but it was fun to get out and socialize and just hang out and watch a good band play.

Tomorrow night I believe we are going to haunted houses. That should be fun even though I've always been terrified of that kinda stuff. We gotta find a real good one to go to though! Sunday doin Jess and Stacey's hair. Fun Fun. Also supposed to go eat chili at Uncle Jim's on Sunday. Not sure if I am going yet or not... Most of the family will probably be there.

The weather has been so perfect lately. I wish it would stay like this forever and never change.

Halloween is in 2 weeks! Yesss. Isn't it crazy how fast time is going? Geez. Before I know it I'm going to be 40.

I feel like I'm already getting old. It's not even 11 on Friday and I'm about to pass out. Night all.

Well thanks so much to everyone who left the messages. I appreciate that. I went over to my grandma's today after work and she was doing fine. She even made supper for me :) We came to the conclusion that my grandma just wore herself out with all the running around she did yesterday. She was out and about for a couple hours and she's just not used to that. Plus she said she didn't have a very big sweater on and she was pretty cold. I don't know what it was but either way she is doing just fine today. Thank god. I didn't sleep very well last night because I was so worried.

Work is going good... I'm liking it. It just wares me out and my feet usually hurt by the end of the day. I can deal though. I'm addicted to our cappuccino chills... one shot of espresso. Yumm.

Tora! Tora! Torrance! is tomorrow and I'm actually looking forward to it. I don't usually go to shows around here, let alone look forward to em. So... yeah. Fun.

Well this afternoon was pretty damn scary. I stopped by my grandma's after work and brought her a sandwich. I noticed she was sitting in her chair bundled up with gloves on and she said she was pretty cold but she felt so hott. So then I started talking with her and she made no sense at all. It was so weird what she would say. She said something along the lines of how she went to the doctor today and yesterday(she hasn't) and I said you went to Osco today and you went to the grocery store yesterday so she said she saw the doctor at the grocery store and he was fighting off the animals. Later I checked her temp and it was near 100 and she had been complaining of her stomach hurting. She just kept saying really weird stuff that made no sense and it was scaring the shit out of me. Something about Chris getting mad at the sports guy because he had coupons for some buscuits. It sounds funny but it's not. My mom came over and called her doctor and he said that we should bring her in tomorrow if we feel she will be okay through the night. So that is what we are doing. She seems physically okay but not mentally. I've never seen her act like this and she didn't seem to notice anything was wrong. She would start looking for something and couldn't get out what it was or she would just stutter and couldn't think of a word. I have no idea what this could mean but I hope to God she is okay. She had a flu shot this morning and we think it might just be a side effect. Those things are crazy. If you pray, do so for my grandma and if not then just think about her.

Has anyone ever heard of flu shots doing something like this to anyone?

Well my first day of work was awesome!!! My feet were killing me by the time I left though. I wore chucks, not thinking. I was on my feet for the entire time except for maybe 10 minutes when I was eating. I'm gonna have to go get some cushiony shoes. My boss is awesome... She's so cool. So is Holly, this girl I will be working be working with pretty much everyday. And of course Mollie is the bomb. She taught me so much today. I started out doing prep work, which I thought I would be doing all day. I think cut 15 heads of lettuce. At the end of the day, I was making sandwiches, wraps, smoothies, coffee, and running the register. I was excited that I caught on so quick. That's a good thing because that place is buuuusy! I get to work with the coolest people too. So anyways, yeah I love my job. And I'm excited to go back in on Mondays. I get the weekends off too, how cool is that?? Oh I forgot to mention that the food kicks ass and we get free food everyday and all we want to drink. Yeah!

I haven't decided if I want to go out tonight. I'm pretty pooped. I'm in a movie type of moood. I wanna go to the drive in, before it closes. Well if anyone feels like chilling tonight, dial me up yo!

Hell yes!! I got the job! And I start tomorrow!!

Life is great...

Wednesday, October 6, 2004


Well it seems as if things are taking a turn for the better...

First off, isn't the weather today amazing?? I love it. Perfect.

I took my grandma to the doctor this morning and it didn't take nearly as long as last time. She came out with a smile on her face. They are lowering her dosage of medicine since she is doing so well! And she doesn't have to go back for another six months! That makes me happy! :)

After we did that we got us some chicken fried steak dinners from KFC and took it back to her house. I took a little nap with Sugar. I love hanging out with my grandma. She's my best friend in the whole world!

I went up to the West Mall. It was weird because right when I walked in I felt really nervous but then I was cool. Anyway I applied for a job at Camille's Sidewalk Cafe, where Mollie and Christy work. They are looking for a daytime person to work M-F, 10-4. How perfect would those hours be? I'm really hoping that I get the job! Mollie said she would put in a good word for me. Everyone cross your fingers for me as well. They make really good peach smoothies.

As I was leaving I saw a girl that I went to school with and chatted with her for a bit. She was one of the coolest people to talk to until she graduated. She said that she still hadn't taken her state board because they lost some of her stuff and she graduated in May. Geez, I probably won't be taking mine for quiet a while. I go up to the school in the morning to do my exit interview. Fun.

Current mood: good

Ugh today totally sucked. I had to finish up the skin 4 class and I finally got all my tests done and what not. I still have to go back up to the school to do my exit interview next Thursday, again early in the morning. Waking up early when you're not used to it sucks ass. I didn't get to sleep til like 2 last night and had to wake up around 7:30. I need to try and start getting to bed earlier and waking up earlier. I'll probably have to when I get a job.

I went through all the crap in my closet yesterday and cleaned everything out. I think I threw away about 7 bags of junk, including and huge troll collection and my paper machete garfield face that I made in 7th grade. I also organized all my stuff into different tubs. One of them is packed full of pictures and another is full of notes, cards, and journals. I'm obsessed with memories. ha. When I was cleaning out the stuff I found some baby stuff and in it was a coat that was my mom's when she was a baby. It is soooo cute! I can't wait to put it on my baby! One day...

I had a bunch of fun with the cousins on Tuesday. We went to some thrift stores. I got some cute cups, a scarf, and cool picture/poster thing that says- I'd rather be skating and has two girls from like the 1800's or something on roller skates. We also went and got some food from the artichoke. Yumm. Good stuff. We took it to the park and ate and it was so cold I was shaking. I love that the weather is starting to change! Wahoo!

All I can think about is how bad I want to move out lately. I know I don't have a job so it's kinda dumb. But I get all excited when I think about having my own place with all my cool decorations and antique furniture and my cat's and being able to drink a beer whenever I want. I might have to move out sooner than I expected. My mom said that my step dad told her he is sick of both of us. Their marriage doesn't look like it's gonna last a whole lot longer. So...

Well I'm glad tomorrow is Friday. And Carrie and Paul are coming? Yessss! Saturday is the day I'm looking forward to. Cut up on some hair(Stacey's) and then hang out with good friends and have a good time(party!) Ha.

Well both of our treadmills are broken and that sucks booty. I've been working out a hell of a lot lately... Doin like 2 miles a day and such. Hopefully Chuck can get at least one of them back to working soon. Otherwise I dunno? Walking around downtown?

Tomorrow I have to go back up to the school to take a freaking class. I've so been dreading it all week. It's really gonna suck. Having to take a class with a group kids I don't know at all. I guess at least it's only 2 days and then it's done and I won't have to worry about it anymore. Then I will have to worry about taking the stateboard exam heh. Last night I was starting to feel kinda sick and I woke up today and couldn't breathe and my throat hurt like a bitch.

I hope I'm feeling better tomorrow. Maybe I'll take some nyquil or something to knock me out early tonight. Waking up at 7:30 sure as hell isn't going to be very fun.

It's been nice to have a vacation since I finished school but it's starting to get pretty boring. Doing chores around the house everyday and other than that, doing pretty much nothing. I'm really ready to get a job and start saving. I think when I get my first paycheck I'm gonna go to the antique store down my street on Douglas and get some really cool furniture or just whatever I can find that is cool.

I'm excited for The Faint and Halloween, even though it seems so far away. I need to go wig hunting. I'm hoping I can find one with the bangs already cut. I also need to get some fabric and come up with a design for my outfit. Fun Fun!


Hey you guys... Go do this. I heard it works so it's worth a try yo.
