[ mood | productive ]

In the next few weeks I want to seriously shape up the apartment. Now that everything is in it's place I a looking for ways to spruce it up even more. I want to make the front hall a more functional space then just a place to put random stuff/the cat's room. I went through a bunch of drawers tonight and straightened that all out.

I want to buy curtains for the bedroom that doesnt let in to much light. I need to buy a bath mat finally for the bathroom and not use this cheapo rug. Thinking of getting an area rug for the living room.

I seriously need to clean the vents/floors in this house and rid the horrible burning cat hair/urine smell. (not our cat but it sometimes smells like a fricken zoo lived here before us.)

Andy and I picked up a free dresser on the side of the road. We are going to sand it and repaint it and make it pretty and functional. Plus I wanna hang up some more pictures and make the place look more homey.

I start work at my PCA job full time next week. So in a couple weeks I am going to quit Old Navy because I dont need to work more than 40 hours and I definitely am sick of working nights and weekends at ON. Plus all the good people quit so I dont really want to work there anymore.

Next Sunday is the family bbq at my place for my dads side of the family. My first actual family function that I am hosting. I am excited. I just hope that is a nice day on Sunday.

I am going to see if my neighbors wil let me take some pictures, they are getting married in the backyard on Saturday. I want to take some so I can make a photo website and try to get photo clients. Then if any actually come out good I will just let the neighbors have them for free. We'll see how it goes. I havent taken pictures for real in a long time.

Today was a beautiful day and I hung around outside for a while and now I have a little sun. It goes pretty well with my new haircut, which is extremely shorter then it was. Still trying to decide if I like it fully or not.

I got a lot of things I want to do but its a long weekend so maybe I can get a jump on it.

Hmm this entry was way longer then I intended. But it was a productive one.

A few days ago I would have said that thanks to the apartment searching I wanted to stab myself in the face because it's becoming very long and drawn out and time consuming which are all stressors. Yesterday we had a pretty successful day. We look at 3 places and we have already applied for two of them. So hopefully at least one of them will approve our application and then we can give them the down payment and be on our way.

We are really torn between the two places though. Theres one in Northampton that $900/month with nothing included but its the cutest apaprtment. There we can have a cat and its minutes walking distance to downtow, and right near all the field.

The other one is on SOUTHEAST St. in Amherst, which is my absolute favorite street ever and I told Andy not to long ago how I would love to live on that street. It over looks Mt. Pollux and the backyard of this place is Mt. Pollux conservation! This one is $1000/month including all the utilities, heat, hot water, and even electricity. The landlord said we could even have a dog! The only thing about this place is that its very "unique." The apartment has a weird layout and half of it has slanted ceilings which is kind of a pain. And the vent system is not in the walls, just plain as hanging out in the rooms. It also has some slanted floors and makes me feel kind of claustraphobic.

So what do you all think? I think right now we are going to try and get the one in Amherst because it's closer to our work places and its surrounded by beautiful mountains. Not to mention we can get a puppy. (That is what is swaying me the most) But the other apartment is overall nicer and its so hard to choose. Half of me wants one person to deny us so we wont have to choose.

We shall see.. hopefully by the end of the day!

So today has been pretty good. It's so beautiful out, i busted out my birkenstocks for the first time. Though I didnt get out much today, only for a quick grocery shop, We had an awesome lunch, (an awesome salad and chips with spinach and artichoke dip!) I have been enjoying the weather with the windows open and lots of sun (thanks to the new setup of our room.)
Andy is uber sick today so it kinda feels like a saturday, we are both home; just hanging out, which is nice.
This past weekend was Easter but Andy and I worked our asses off moving our room around and cleaning and organizing. It was quite the workout. Even though its not done, the organizing is probably gonna take a few weeks, it looks great. The bed is under the window (my queen matress from home) and the computer is now in the closet. I love it. And Andy even gave me free reign to do whatever I want with the walls.(!!)
This weekend while we were moving the matress on the highway with my aunts truck. the fucking boxspring and matress flew out the back and landed in the middle of the highway. Thankfully, nobody was behind us because we could have caused a fatal accident. we dragged the stuff off the highway and made it home with no major damage done to the goods.
Today I got a call from the job I was appying for and I got it. So I am gonna be a homemaker helping out the elderly. I have to get the second oart of my tb shot and then theres a two week class starting the 25th. I hope I dont hate it. And I hope I work a lot and get health insurance.
And in a few weeks, Howard Roofus will be on the road again!!

You Are Belle!

Intelligent and kind. Your beauty goes much further than your apperance. Also, you make judgements of people based on their personality and not their looks. Attaining all the knowledge that you can is one of your major goals in life, but you are also a person who can make things happen.

Which Disney Princess Are You?

So dissapointed in this country and the people who live in it.

Obviously idiots.

Baby Black Toe [29 Oct 2004|08:23pm]
[ mood | high ]

So Wednesday totally sucked ass. I had to go to the emergency room because I was helping Andy move wicked heavy desk and i couldnt hold it, dropped it right n my big toe. I thought they were gonna have to cut it off, I swear. Pain was so bad.. got some x-rays, got some vicotin.. I am all set. Looks wicked nasty and bruised and bloody and my nail is all blue.

I have been trying to put up these damn pictures on my journal, of the beach and pumpkins and stuff. But my computer is so fricken slow. I am gonna try to get them up there soon.

For Halloween we are going to the scary movie marathon. Andy, Greg and Ray and I. My costume is still on, I have to get a black or red bra and some black shoes. Well just the right shoe, my other shoe is my sex post operation hospital shoe. Anyway, we also got some McSquirrelies for tomorrow. So that will be fun. Hopefully I dont laugh the whole time, or get to scared!

Hmm thats about it. Andy thinks his bosses wife might want me to be a full time nanny. That would be cool since I decided not to go back to school full time and I would love a job like that. Hmmm hope he wasnt wrong about what he thought she was hinting at.

Going to the bar in a bit.

No more teachers... no more books... [15 Oct 2004|01:07pm]
[ mood | confused ]

So I decided that school is not for me. I was looking forward to Umass before I got here but now I just cannot stand it. Whether I gave it a fair chance or not... I'm sick of it. I just feel that stuff I want to do has nothing to do with being at school. I want to make money. Right now. I want to have a place to live and call my home with Andy. I want to be able to drive the car that I own and not watch it sit in the driveway day after not, not even able to start right now. I just want a life of my own and thats not working the way I want it to at school.

I hate my major. It's not the one I want. My writing class which is pretty much the only one that corresponds to my major is my least favorite. I cant stand the teacher, no matter how much I try I feel like she always has something negative to say about my assingments, even if she is really nice to your face. I wanna look into taking classes I actually enjoy.

I think I am going to look for a full time job for next semester and just take a class or two at night. I wanna finish up my degree from HCC first of all. And I want to have money and work at making my credit better so later I can get things that I want. I dont want to live paycheck to paycheck like my family has all of my life and theirs.

I want t do things that I like and not just because they are the things I "have" to do or that I'm expected to do. I'm not saying that I wanna quit school because I know in order to get a good job you have to be skill in something. But I have no idea what I want to do yet so I dont want to waste my time spending other peoples thousands of dollars so in the end i can be like, "I have a degree in something I dont want to do." I wanna look closer into other majors and classes that I will really like.

I need financial stability in this moment of time, especiallly since I am pretty much on my own now.
Everything is so frustrating!

Woah. LiveJournal has a new layout when you update. Like woah.

This weekend was quite nice. Saturday we went to New York City. It was a really beautiful day weather-wise. We didnt do anything to eventful. Walked a lot (but not as much as last time, no disgusting pussy blisters this time.) We shopped around but were very unsucessful in finding the kind of and Andy got a bunch of awesome things. I didnt get much. Andy bought me duc tissues because he used a lot of my other ones. I got some fish net stockings for my Halloween Costume. Let's see.. we ate the best sandwiches of our lives at this fresh food deli. We had dinner at a very fancy, very delicious, very quiet Italian restaurant. It was what we needed after a hectic day of walking aroumd.

The other day I babysat for Andy's boss. They have a wicked cute little baby girl. She's about eight months or something. It was fun. I like hanging out with kids that age. She was just chill and we got along well.

Today I manage to screw my left knee up. I sliipped down the hill in Andy's yard and my foot stayed in place while my knee twisted in a way I didnt know it could. Hurts really bad. I probably sprained it or something. The hill and stairs will be hard to deal with tomorrow.

Went to the Olive Garden with Andy's and Legz. Hmm never ending pasta bowls. Although I must say that mine wasnt as spectacular as I thought it would be. But I filled up on other stuff. Good food is quite excellenyt, especially if you are college student.

Tomorrow.. a lot to do. Test.. errands, three classes. But then my reward of my awesome boyfriend.
Hmm. I couldnt ask for a better person.
