Fancy, huh?


I want so much.  So much of this blog is about what I want.  I figure so why stop now.  This is a list about what I want:

  • a nice place of my own that is decorated fabously
  • a boyfriend whom I am serious with
  • a great job
  • parties
  • brunches
  • nice clothes
  • nicer shoes
  • slender bod

Right NOW 6/24/2013

  • Slept until 1:48pm.  Can you say tired.
  • Looking forward to the book club meeting tonight.  Really looking forward to it.  Pizza, wine, and a great book.
  • Rice a roni. My bestie has tried to get me to make it for years.  I loved it.
  • Over the heat.  Fall where are you.
  • Looking forward to my after summer vacation.  Might have to take a mini vacation before then though.
  • Whiskey stones.  Interesting but can they come in another color.
  • Looking to make more money to do more things.


I am totally everywhere.  I keep thinking about where am I.  What am I doing?  My life is passing me by.

I’m 30. I’m not even thirty, I’m 31.  Eeek, I almost forgot.

Living at home working at the megacenter.  I don’t know how to move forward.  I am stuck!!!!  And I feel I suck.  I am sucking at life.  Moving out would make me feel better but I don’t make anything.  My checks are four hundred dollars no matter how long I work.


I am trying something new.  No, blogging isn’t new for me.  But I haven’t been blogging constantly since I got laid off in 2009.  I’ve been in a funk and just existing  And I cannot do that anymore.  If I want a life, I have to go out and get one.

I have to be more than just my job.  I have to have more than just my job going on for me.  My job and Game of Thrones are keeping me fat and in the same place I’ve been for a while.  The starting line is behind me and I am at a steady pace.  I’m ready to enjoy this.

pre vail

I was sure that I wanted prevail to be my word for 2013.

I need a word to move forward and to empower me.  I know I need to step my game up in life.  If you want change then you have to change.  Prevail overcomes all that mess in my life.  I am super excited for 2013.

I feel a new year gives you a new start for goals.


For once in my life I do not have a concrete plan.  I am use to knowing where I am going and why.  I know that path that I should take.  And I arrive when I arrive.  It seems like recently I have just lost it.  I want a well paying job in the non-profit sector.  And I want to go back to school, but both seem really difficult.

I feel like the loser grown up who stays with her mom.  The scary person lurking in the shadows.  I keep thinking that I need to get my head in the game, but how much time do I need to get my head in the game.  All my time seems to be thinking and waffling.  I’m in a rut and I do not know how to move forward.


I am a fan of action plans.  I think maybe I need an action plan.  But maybe I am doing a lot of planning and not enough doing.  Maybe I need to do and not plan.  I am afraid I am letting life just happen.

No what a mess

My life has become a mess in 2012.  I complete mess.

The only joy I have right now is young adult dystopian novels and my Walmart app.  I want to read Mindy Kaling’s book, but funds are lacking and I have a cruise to go on.

The Bahamas is going to be nice.  The car ride is probably the worse thing.  Plus I know my friend does not trust my driving.


I am so all over the place right now.  I am living at home about to go blind okay just losing my sight from a degenerative eye disease.  I don’t want to be where I am now.  I want to be somewhere totally different.  I don’t want to be living with my mother at 30.  I don’t want to be single.  I don’t want to be at the supercenter.

Everyone seems to have the answers, well where the answers are for me.  I feel trapped.
