10 Rules I Just Made Up

One: If you complain about your job, quit your job. Also, quit bitching.

Two: When you get to that point in your day when you're just plain tired, suck it up. We all get tired.

Three: I don't drive slowly. I wanna go fast. Get the heck out of my way.

Four: Don't talk about people. If you must, however, don't bitch out and deny you did it when they find out. Own that shit.

Five: Girls don't poop. (I actually made this up a long time ago. But still.)

Six: Once you forget someone's birthday, you can forget them because they don't matter anymore.

Seven: It is not boot season, ladies. I do not want to see you wearing boots until mid-October.

Eight: When in doubt, ask questions.

Nine: Don't make-out in public. Just...don't.

Ten: It's never okay for siblings to add your crushes/potentials on Facebook. Never.

10 Things Every Girl Should Have

1. A clean set of sheets, because spilled nail polish and midnight laziness do not mix well.

2. Two pairs of her favourite jeans.

3. An accomplished list, because a to-do list is just bullshit to face sometimes.

4. A countdown to something fantastic.

5. A man to play with her hair.

6. Diamond stud earrings, because...just because.

7. A favourite or rotating motivational quote, pinned to her wall or taped to her mirror.

8. A pair of those new fangled roll-up flats, in her purse, glovebox, lovebox, or wherever she'll always have them.

9. A weekend away each month.

10. An extra bottle of shampoo. Or at least dry shampoo, so you can still look clean, but we all know you're lazy, forgetful, and disgusting today.

Next up: 5 Things All Men SHOULD Do, and 5 Things I NEED My Man To Do.

10 Things He's Taught Me About Myself

-It's okay for me to laugh hysterically in public.
-Forgiveness is something that I dole out far too often.
-I get too protective.
-I hold grudges like it's nobody's business.
-I take care of people who don't take care of me, and that's becoming a problem.
-I get very frustrated very easily.
-I'm too outspoken sometimes, but most of the time, it's a good thing.
-I hate being the center of a group's attention, but having one person's entire focus is something I enjoy.
-I have to stop being afraid.
-I'm very judgemental of people I don't know, and even more so of people I do know.

Courage, Robert.

The last year of my life has been the most thrilling year, but it’s also been the most disappointing year. I’ve always pictured myself with a good man and a couple of kids by the time I turned 25, but the closer and closer 25 gets, the farther and farther that picture seems.

[#1] This time last year, I was toward the end of a very stupid relationship. It wasn’t always stupid, but when the only words between the two of you for months are “Goodnight and I love you,” it’s hard to even call it a relationship. From the very beginning, everyone told me how bad of an idea it was to one - be in a long distance relationship, and two - be with someone who could never actually handle me in real life. Then there was the whole part where everyone said I was totally out of his league…which I was/am, but that was never even a factor to me. I was madly in love with this Irish fellow, and there was nothing in the world that was going to bring me down from that. Not a thing…until I started being ignored because he was “working so much.” Son, there is not a job in the world that you have to be at so much that you can’t take 15 seconds to send me a text message a few times a day. But all I said was okay, and I tried harder. I put all the love and effort that I had into making my relationship work, while he was getting busy with someone else for most of the time that we were together. Fantastic. So then we broke up, and I met someone.

[#2] I met someone who I would never usually give a second look, but there was something about him that just had me hooked. Months went by, where I just waited for things to get serious, but they never did. Not with me, anyway. He got serious with someone else, broke my heart, and I was left to my own devices to find my own serious someone. After both of those things dissolved, we found our way back to each other, and there I was again, waiting. I tried my best to make things happen, but he just wasn’t having it. Then one day, he told me he loved me, and I said “…oh.” Oh. I SAID OH. Who does that?! All of this time spent waiting for this dude, and I said oh. Then about a month or so later, I told him that I loved him. His response? Long story short… “I was drunk when I said that. I didn’t mean it. I don’t love you.” Awesome. Go me, letting him break my heart a second time. Want to know just how stupid I am, though? I let him do it again, for a third time. THREE TIMES I let this guy into my life and into my heart, and three times, he ruined absolutely everything. This last time, though. That was it for me. He told me that he’s falling in love with someone else, and right then and there, I realized that I am so much better off moving on and that I no longer needed to try with him and I no longer needed to do anything nice for him and I no longer needed him.

[#3] But for the last three years or so, someone has been holding my heart in the palm of his hand. Waiting. And while I was out falling for all of these dudes who don’t deserve any of my love, much less all of it…I was doing to him exactly what Mister #2 was doing to me, and I didn’t even realize it until Mister #2 had broken my heart for the third damned time. So I’ve been making plans and I’ve been making promises, and I have very single intention of spending the rest of my life with this man, because I don’t need anyone else. Last October, I was going through something really crappy, and he was the only person in the world who was there for me, and that should’ve been enough to make me realize that he’s the only one I need. He’s the only one that’s going to love me, and take care of me, and hold me down when things get crazy.

On another note…James, thank you for being there for me through all of this, and through everything else that I’ve been through in the last few years. I don’t think that I would’ve made it to where I am today without all of your love and support, and I don’t think that you could ever really understand how thankful I am to have you in my life.

I'm (Not) Sorry...

I'm a big fan of Gibbs' Rule #6: Never apologize. And I don't. Well...I do, just very rarely. So, I've decided to compile a list of things that I am indeed sorry for, along with a list of things that I'm not sorry for.

I'm sorry...
-that sometimes, I throw huge fits over things, like the soap being on the wrong side of the sink.
-for not shaving my legs before the company Christmas party, and still wearing that short little dress.
-that my heart got broken too many times last year.
-for making Fireman's life a lot more difficult than it needs to be.
-for wearing dirty socks to work...more than once.
-for eating two donuts last Saturday, one of them being the last one in the box.
-that I wore two different perfumes at the same time...also more than once.
-for not blogging more often.
-that my car gets really disgusting really quickly.
-that I stopped going to my meetings, and that I relapsed pretty hard.
-that I don't read as many books as I should.

I'm not sorry...
-for tweeting so much.
-for being so forward with people.
-for giving my virginity to a guy that I had only met two hours before. <-Life lesson.
-that I just don't want to talk to people sometimes.
-for being really good at telling people what emotions they do/don't get to feel/have at any given time.
-that I have chicken at least 5 nights a week.
-for keeping my private life private.
-for creeping on Facebook.
-that I sometimes have to scratch my butt.
-for wearing sunglasses over my actual glasses.
-that I ate an entire bag of pumpkin seeds in one day.
-that I'll wear old make-up if I run out of mine as I'm getting ready.
-for listening to Yelawolf pretty much non-stop.
-that I use my boobies to get free stuff.

Stay Gold.

Seven Things

1. Sometimes, silence is more of a comfort than any words you could offer.

2. Any amount of time spent with the one you love, be it a minute or a lifetime, is something that should absolutely be cherished, every single time.

3. Trust os one of the hardest things to earn, so once you have someone's, you'd better hang onto it with all that you've got.

4. There's always something to look forward to.

5. Bad things, awful things, tragic things - they happen, but very rarely is it something that we can't get through.

6. Traveling alone isn't as terrifying as I thought it would be.

7. When their feelings are hurt, most people don't mean a single word that they say.
