I'm addicted and I just can't get enough, I just can't get enough...
I'm so insanely bored to the point that I might as well write my last entry of 2012. What is this social life you speak of? I'm on break from both work and school and all I've been doing is sit around at home.
I found it a little funny and ironic when an acquaintance of mine texted me asking me what I've been up to and saying that I "look like I'm having fun", then "are you super fit now?", followed by asking if I had plans for NYE because she's having a potluck. Being the party pooper that I am, I declined. I said that I had nothing to offer and I don't want to drink anyway. SoOooooo yeeeah~ I don't exactly see the fun she's seeing.
As a developmental measure for myself, I'll probably start posting less "mysterious" looking pictures of myself. Slowly, I'm unveiling the layers behind this boring and awkward onion (or whatever layered object) that I am.
I don't even get or give presents to my parents or sibling. The only presents I did get were from some kids at work which surprised me because I'm not even managing a classroom full of children. So sweet for them to have thought of me and made their parents get me something. It isn't much, just Starbucks gift cards and a box of chocolates, but I was touched nonetheless.
|Super touched by this one. It was only a $5 gift card, but it was written with love from a first grader! SO AWW! ; _____ ;|
|And then there's this one from a kid who I have known since he was in first grade. He's now in fifth grade! ; ____ ; GAWD, I'm so old. (lol)|
First off, I got myself a Clarisonic Mia after wanting to try it for the longest time. I couldn't justify the price of it until I started finding out how many of my followers actually own one. After that, I hopped on that bandwagon.
|I read the Mia 2's speed settings weren't that different so I settled with the Mia. I got it for about $92 after discounts, taxes, and cashbacks.|
The rest of my purchases are pretty much clothes and shoes. I bought these from ASOS six or so days before Christmas Day. They should be arriving soon.
|All above were $14.07|
|$20 and Leopard print! YAYYY. Hopefully it fits well.|
|$25 and it actually shipped. #amazed.|
|$25. I've always wanted one of those crazy floral shirts too.|
I went to the mall after Christmas because I had nothing better to do and came out with a gray cowl neck thin sweater thing from Forever21. I was fine paying the $13.99 or whatever it was marked down to because I didn't realize the 50% off sign meant an additional 50% percent off, so it ended up being around $7. It's so basic looking I didn't bother taking a picture of it. I'm wearing it right now as I type anyway. (lol)
I have a case of the shin splints, so I can't go on my calorie burning grind but I stocked up on some sneakers anyway. I'm thinking of starting to run again once the weather starts warming up again. Jogging in 50 deg. F nights while drenched in sweat isn't that fun (especially when my fingers are flipping cold). I walked about 6 miles yesterday and I'm feeling some sensitivity in my shins today. No pain, no gain? ~___~. I'll probably walk the remainder of my little vacation next week. Hopefully, the weather complies.These are from 6pm.com
|$50.88 Total (orig. 94.99). Hope these minimalist shoes are good.|
|$34.25 Total (orig. 90.00). I read marathon runner reviews on these and most of them were positive. They're kind of dated but I'm not a marathon runner, so they should be good enough.|
Finally! I've always wanted plaid pants. I looked up Hot Topic's website tonight and lo and behold, I found some on clearance. Hopefully they fit because I can't return them. They say skinny fit, not super skinny, so they should. I hope they keep in mind their fat goth kid customers. Not all of them are pierced up sticks.
Sooooooo yeah, that was my splurge. Only things I kind of want left is a Sonicare toothbrush, belts, and some cool vests. Oh! My mom got me a navy cardigan from American Apparel and she got herself a pink one which she later asked if I wanted it. I said I didn't really care and she kept it. I gave my dad one of my shawl collared cardigans as a result since it seemed more fitting for him.
With all this free time on my hands, I have time to reflect on my dull life. I mean, I'm fine with being a loner and all, but I don't know. I hate it when people think they're such a friend but they obviously have other priorities at hand. And by priorities, I mean people, not goals or jobs and whatnot. I guess that's why I like keeping busy because I get so busy that I can just brush all this off. I'm sure with time, the right people do come along but there is no guarantee they'll be staying around. In turn, I feel that there's nothing about me worth keeping around. (Heh~). I actually hate watching "The Big Bang Theory" but there's kind of nothing else to watch after work, and I feel like I'll start becoming like Penny (minus the mega geeks). I've always lived by this "in the end, you only have yourself" mentality since I've entered high school. It'll probably stay that way until proven wrong. That hasn't happened in the past decade though. And no, I don't want to meet a friend's friend. Nothing ever good comes from that nor do I have an interest in doing so.
All I can do now is just work on being a hot tamale, finish school, build up my YouTube channel so that it's résumé worthy, and just be me. Once I finish my long awaited undergrad degree, I'll probably first get a gym membership and then I'll be getting a puppy. It'll be my friend. It'll never leave me. (LOL)
As of right now, this is all a fantasy of mine. This won't be happening until the start of 2014, at the earliest. And like any other crazy pet owner, I'll most likely take tons of pictures and document its growth and ability to learn for both memories sake and the hell of it. Oh~ a boy can dream... I already have names planned (hahah I'm nuts). Clifford, named after the big red dog. Cooper, named after one of my idols, Anderson Cooper. And Scherzy, after Nicole Scherzinger (if the dog happens to be a female). Those are all the ones set in stone for now...haha.
The rest of my entry will be my pictures from instagram which don't really fit any where else in this entry.
|Merry Christmas ya'll~ The face came about me not having a proper shower for 4 or so days because our bathtub was clogged. You'll see why as you scroll down.|
|One of my coworkers went to Hong Kong and Japan for two weeks and brought these for me. A sakura matcha flavored Kit Kat pack and a "Japanese Twinkie"/ Tokyo Banana.|
|I finally got to try one of those new ketchup packets where you can rip off the top to squeeze out or peel back the covering to dip. SO COOL!!|
|Oh the joy of being able to shower again!|
|Had a haircut 3 weeks prior to above photo. I need a side trim soon.|
Peace and Love!
