These Three Things.

"I tried my best. I did everything that I could. Even then, it wasn't enough for you. It was never enough. I was never enough. I don't regret any of it, not for a second. If I had the chance to do it all over again, with the same outcome, I would. Do you know why? Because no one has ever taught me more about myself than you. No one ever gave me a reason to stand up for myself. To love myself. To be strong. You did all of that. If you weren't who you are, if you hadn't said the things you'd said, or done the things you did, or if you weren't the way you are, I never would have realized what I could become. I gave you everything, and I got nothing, and I have to live with that forever, but so do you. Nothing we did can be fixed. Nothing we did can be taken back. Nothing we did can be made-up for. What's happened has happened, and we have to move on. We have to take from that and make it matter. We have to do our best. We have to do everything we can. We have to hope that it's enough...that we're enough."

"If you stare too long at something, things start to change, some even start to disappear. Complacency is what they call it. You get so caught up in what you think is there, and you don't even realize when it isn't anymore, or when it's become something completely different. This happens all too often. We accept what is, and we don't bother with what could be."

"Nobody can know anything about you if you don't let them. If someone's in your life, and you don't tell them anything, then what do they know? Nothing. They know nothing. They can assume whatever they'd like, but they can't back any of it up. However, if you tell someone one little thing, they can make it into anything they want, and tell whoever they want, and then, it's a never-ending cycle. If you don't want everyone to know something, then don't tell anyone."

[I'll add my closer here later. lol It's bedtime now!]

Seven Things

1. If you believe that something is easier said than done, then you aren't trying your hardest to do it.

2. When something is wrong, and someone asks you if something's wrong, "Nothing" is no longer an acceptable answer.

3. At least once in your life, ice cream should be okay for breakfast.

4. You can't make someone love you. You can't even make someone like you.

5. Retail jobs are not as horrific as people make them out to be.

6. Do what you love, and love what you do, and if you don't, then maybe go try something new.

7. Psych is the greatest show to ever be on television. Don't even try to argue with me on this.

Clarification.

I constantly get asked about my personal business, and I constantly get reamed for being a “hypocrite.” You see, I’ve always made it a point to bitch at people who put their personal business on the internet, and a lot of you seem to think that’s that what I do, when it isn’t. I’m not sitting here, telling the world about my relationship issues. I’m not publicizing my lovers’ quarrels. I’m not looking for attention by putting that sort of stuff out there. If you’re happy, cool. Be happy. Tell everyone. That’s what’s up. If you’re having trouble in your relationship, work it out. Don’t tell me about it on twitter, because I really don’t give a fuck. It’s called a personal life because it’s just that: personal. It’s your personal, private business, and it should be kept as such. It’s not doing any good to tell twitter about it. I’m going to laugh at you. I’m going to think that you’re 14, and can’t figure out that things don’t fix themselves. I’m going to patronize you. It matters not that it’s YOUR twitter, where you can say what you want. You’re stupid if you think that putting your private business out there is a good idea. You really are.

Now, onto those of you who seem confused about it all. I’m not putting my personal, private business out there. Simply mentioning NotEric is not a bad thing. I’ve not said a single bad thing about him or this…whatever we have going on. I don’t like that. Clearly. My business is my business, and you will know what I tell you. It isn’t any of your concern what struggles I may or may not be facing in my life. This. This blog. This one right here. This is where I discuss what I want. This is where I let you understand me. This is where we sit on the front porch swing, and discuss life.

Seven Things

1. - You can give everything to someone, but you absolutely cannot expect a single thing in return.

2. - There are times when silence is more effective than any words you could find.

3. - Sometimes, their phone really does die.

4. - If you can't handle something, say so. There are plenty of people who are willing to help you.

5. - Sometimes, -not too often, but sometimes- it's okay to keep a secret or two.

6. - People will talk about you. That will never stop, no matter how little they know about you.

7. - You don't have to be somebody important to do something important.

Closure.

27 months later, I finally got the apology I've deserved. The explanation I've earned. The closure that I've awaited. I didn't think that a simple apology could fix everything, but it did. I feel okay, for the first time in a very long time. I feel like I can trust people again. I feel... free. I know that none of this is making sense to any of you, but that's okay. I don't need it to. It makes sense to me.


"Communication. It’s the first thing we really learn in life. Funny thing is, once we grow up, learn our words, and really start talking, the harder it becomes to know what to say, or how to ask for what we really need…

Some things, we just don’t want to hear. And some things we say because we can’t be silent any longer. Some things are more than what you say. They’re what you do. Some things, you say because there is no other choice. Some things, you keep to yourself. And not too often, but every now and then… some things simply speak for themselves."

A Hasty Hiatus

I left the internet for a few days, not that anyone cared. I sure didn't. The reasons I shut myself off from the world, and the awful people that dwell in it, were selfish. Childish. Stupid. Hmm…that sounds like most of you. Anyway, I’ve decided to return to the world wide web, but not for anyone else. I need this. I need to be able to laugh at the moronic things you dumbasses say. I need to be able to laugh at all of the nonlinear lies you tell, thinking that no one notices. I need to be able to witness the rise and fall of your never-lasting relationships, as you bounce around from one friend to another, like you’re still 16. I need that. I NEED to know that you people are lacking so much in your lives, and in your souls. It makes me feel good.

Now, here’s a list of things that I do not care about:

-You.
-What you think/have to say about me.
-What you think/say about what I say or do.
-Who you think I’ve slept with.
-Mustard.
-Matching socks.
-What you think/say about my boyfriend and/or my relationship.
-How much of a whore you think I am.
-Ugly couches.
-What you think/say about…well, pretty much everything. Unless it was mentioned in the above paragraph, in which case, I only care for the lulz.
-Most sports.

Just Do It

After last fall, I quit school. I took the spring semester off. I didn’t know if I wanted to go back. I didn’t know if I wanted to be a student again. But, this week, I registered for summer and fall classes. There’s not point in wasting away the tens of thousands of dollars I have in scholarships, right? -_-

To The People

To the people that shit on other people for having different opinions than theirs: Why? Just…why? Seriously. What gives you the right to trash someone you disagree with? How the hell would your dumbass feel if someone treated you that way? Why do you not understand that other people are allowed to have different opinions? Land of the free, motherfuckers. Realize that.

Just Do It

I dyed my hair black a few months ago, and promised myself that I would leave it that way. I’ve been dying my hair since I was eight years old. It’s beyond dead and damaged. Then…the other day, I bought bleach, and bleached my hair. The wreck on my head is insane. But my hair isn’t black anymore!

Sunday Rant

Topic: People who think that being upset gives them the right to be cruel.

I understand being upset. I understand being upset to the point where everyone and everything pisses you off, and makes you want to lash out. I get that, I do. But I do not understand why people think feeling that gives them the right to be cruel to others. Do not sit there, and tell me that I'm a horrible person, just because you're pissed off. Do not make me feel awful, just because the entire world will not stop for you. Do not make anyone else feel the way you're feeling. Nobody WANTS to feel like that. Nobody WANTS to be on the receiving end of your nonsense. Nobody WANTS to be anything but happy.

The Plan

I know I’m always talking about blogging more, but I never actually do it. So, I’ve decided that I’m going to blog ten times a week: once on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and twice on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Mondays will be the Video of the Week. I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to post a video of my own, or just link a video of someone else’s, so I’m going to either do both every week, or alternate between the two each week.

Tuesdays will be My Accomplished List. It’s much more gratifying than a to-do list.

Wednesdays will be Five Things To Do. One week will be Five Things To Do Every Day, one will be Every Week, one will be Every Month, one will be Every Year, and then it’ll go back to Every Day, and continue the cycle.

Thursdays will be To The People Who. Basically, I’m going to write letters to people who do dumb shit.

Fridays will be What’s on the Whiteboard, and Just Do It. What’s on the Whiteboard will just be a picture of my whiteboard, which almost always has something seriously, something silly, and something sexy on it. Just Do It will involve me doing things that I don’t normally do. Which is a lot, and it’s mostly simple stuff, but whatever.

Saturdays will be Ten Things I've Learned This Week, and Tips And Tricks. Ten Things I've Learned This Week is self-explanatory. Tip & Tricks will be just that, and will be for everything from cleaning, to make-up, to deals at restaurants, to pretty much everything else.

Sundays will be Three Life Lessons, and The Sunday Rant. Three Life Lessons will be three quotes, with my own stories of how they apply to me. The Sunday Rant will be me doing what I do best: bitching.

I’m definitely setting the bar a little high, with ten blogs a week, but I’m determined. If I get burned out with some of them, then I’ll stop doing those, but I want to blog more, so I won’t stop doing all of them.

Stay Gold.

9 April 2011

I’m too young to be this tired. It’s not like the kind of tired you can just sleep away. I wish it were, but it’s not. It’s this kind of tired where, no matter how hard I try, I can’t feel okay. I don’t know what it is. I have a good job, I have a few wonderful friends, I have a lovely boyfriend, I have an amazing family. I laugh a lot. I smile a lot. I have good times 95% of the time. I don’t understand why I feel so…I don’t know. I just generally feel like hell. Anyway. Here’s my favourite baby in the entire world. She makes me feels not like hell. (Even if my skin looks like it. lol And I don't wear make-up to work, so pardon my non-make-up'd face, k? K.)

Let's Play Pretend

Last night, I told you guys that my grandmother has a tumor in her brain, and that she's dying. WHen my mom told me that, I reacted the same way I would react to her telling me what's for dinner: K. That's what I said. K. It's not that I don't care, it's not that I want my grandmother to die, it's just that, all of my life, every time someone's gotten sick or whatever, I continue on like nothing's wrong. My mom's had cancer so many times, and she'd tell us, then never mention it again, so I suppose that's why I act like everything's okay, when it's not.

Is it stupid of me to act like nothing's wrong with her? I mean, is it expected of me to be nicer to her and to tell her how much I love and appreciate her, JUST because she's dying? What does that accomplish, aside from reminding her that she's not going to be around much longer? Is it selfish of me to not want to prepare for her death, to not want to worry about what will happen afterwards, to not care? I'm not going to sit around and wait for her to die. When it happens, then I'll have no choice but to deal with it, but until then, let's play pretend.

So This Happened.

For the last week, I’ve been going nuts trying to find the most current edition of the required texbooks and whatever the fuck else I needed for my classes. Today, the first day of the spring semester, I receive the following e-mail from my advisor:

“Ms. [Woolysocks],
It’s just come to my attention that your registration papers and the required fees have not been filled out correctly and need to be redone. While I understand that the semester has already begun, I would like to set up an appointment for you to meet with me again, so we can get your papers done and get you started in your spring classes.
-Mr. [IAmAnIdiot]”


What the fuck, right? You mean to tell me that the papers you filled out WITH me were done wrong? Seriously. Anyway, this is what I sent back to him:

“Mr. [IAmAnIdiot],
It’s just come to my attention that you are a moron and you should not be employed in your current position, as the senior advisor for [Bumfuck College]. While I understand that you are old and demented, I would like to set up an appointment for you to get your head out of your ass. I will no longer be attending [Bumfuck College], so further communication between the fuckheads that work there (i.e. you) and the misfortunate humans that have to deal with you (i.e. me) is no longer required or desired.
-Ms. [Woolysocks]”

Keep Me In Mind.

My long awaited return is upon us. Well, maybe just awaited. And probably just by me. lol But seriously. Things that I did while I was away?

-Got back into country music. That was a part of my life that I wish I'd rediscovered sooner.
-Met the new love of my life, Anabelle. [Pictured below.]
-Realized that if Logan Echolls were a real person, I would marry him and live happily ever after. Same goes for Dick Casablancas, but I won't get into that. lol
-Waited too long to register for spring classes.
-Received my Ring of Honor tickets for March.
-Found out that my brother-in-law is being deployed.
-Found out that I may be moving to Shreveport.
-Got $256.78 worth of clothes for $0.86.
-Started my second job, then quit.
-Possibly fell in love with Luke Bryan.
-Decided that I want a carrot cake at my wedding, and decided that DJ's just gonna have to be okay with that. :)
-Became the most jaded motherfucker on Earth.
-Got my CPR certification.
-Performed the Heimlich on a pregnant woman.
-Began my journey into Veronica Marsdom and made a bunch of fake college schedules for people to give to their bosses/parents/whatever.

Anyway, today, as some of you know, is my second anniversary of being clean. I've got a ton of things in my life to work on, but this whole "not using" thing is definitely something that I've got down. My second semester of college starts Tuesday. I need to quit my job, but the more I think about it, the more I realize how much I love/can't leave my babies.

This is Anabelle. :)
