Loving… the simple things. An extra tasty sandwich. A positive email from an actual person. Fun things in the mail. Drawing. Hugs.
Hating… That I my last post was last week’s Currently list. I need to write more, but it’s so hard lately considering not much goes on. I always tell myself I’m going to turn into one of those people who does the “just write something, anything, every day.”
Playing… Gone Home. Well, I was playing Gone Home. It sounded like it had a good story and was on sale on Steam and, when I asked Luke about it, he said it’d be fine to get. Reviews even said it was non-violent and not scary. 40 minutes in, I have to close out of the game because I got freaked out. When Luke found out I got scared, he was like, “oh, THAT game? Yeah, that’s like, totally a horror game.” Way to look out for me. Whomp whomp. Fortunately, Steam has a family sharing option so he’ll get to play it, at least.
Hoping… for lots of things. Time out of the house, a new job I actually enjoy, to actually get everything I feel like I need to get done done, to make actual friends with some of my fellow blog ladies, etc…
Anticipating… a family picnic our family has planned this Saturday. I’m excited to get out of the house and be around people! Yay!
Yeah, there’s not much going on right now. Hopefully, I’ll be able to actually do more with my blog when I get things going on.
I’m not ignoring you.
Just your text message.
Your existence is far too poignant for my conscience to resist.
I can’t resist remembering you don’t read my blog
or like my hair
but you love it when we’re cudding and my
eyelashes tickle your neck when I blink.
D: “So how’s Lauren.”
D: “Haha, your face like, lit up into a thousand daisies.”
Me: “A thousand daisies?”
Me: “I’m blogging that.”
You know that old, old phrase: “The customer is always right”? Apparently it has expired and is no longer accurate. It seems that the appropriate term now is “The customer doesn’t know what they’re talking about.”
I went shopping this morning and every single time I rang up, I was treated like I didn’t know what I was doing or I was an idiot for asking a question. Now, I understand that every one who works at the mall has had the most difficult week of the year, but what are they getting paid for?
Don’t get me wrong, I really do sympathise with them, but they aren’t being paid to make me feel stupid. And they’re not gaining any customers by doing so, either. So what if I try to hand you my debit card when I’m supposed to scan it? You can tell me that I need to scan it myself without sounding like you’ve never seen something more repulsive than me in your life.
I blame the lack of common courtesy and respect there is in society nowadays… But that’s another blog post. And tying that all in with politics? Yeah, that’s another nother blog post. =]
Wow… I hate that I’ve gone so long without updating.
But! But! I promise you:
Tomorrow(ish?) I’ll post a long one. It’ll be fun; It’ll inculde a drinking version of “Christmas Time is Here” from Charlie Brown – along with a list of the amazing songs that my Chorale is doing now, avoid-ation (just go with it) of election talk, a picture of my new haircut, links to Youtube videos that are awesome, other blog reccomendations, and probably some irritated venting about my AP US History class.
So don’t give up on me! I’m making up for my abscence ASAP!
Last night was my high school’s first choir concert of the year! It was also my frst performance with show choir. As nervous as I was, I rocked the concert! Oh, it was so much fun! I performed two songs with my show choir, one with a select ensemble, one with the women’s ensemble, and four with the whole of Chorale.
The ending piece was a medly of songs from the Lion King. One of my few complaints with that one is that no body had any energy. That morning, we were told to be moving around a little and smiling. I mean it’s Lion King for goodness sake! Anyway, I told my dad about that at the afterglow.
“Well, I saw several people moving; most of them were in the back row.”
“Yeah! Because we’re tall! There’s more of us! Maximum capacity for awesome!”
I had a bigger group of people that came and saw me than ever before to any of my performances ever.
And today, I actually kind of understood my chemistry class. And I got a lot done in AP English. I’m writing an essay on The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. If you haven’t read it yet, I highly reccomend it. Anyway, while we were in the computer lab, I recieved a carnation-gram for sweetest day!! ME. I’ve never recieved a flower from anyone in my school! 😀 ……Okay, so it was from one of my good friends, but nevertheless, it made my day! Besides, she’s kind of one of those people where I’m surprised that she chose to pay to have a flower sent to me of all people, me of all her other friends. (Yes, I know that sentence could have been executed much better, but I couldn’t figure out a better way to phrase it. I’m saving all my powers of perfect sentence structure for my essay)
Thing to smile about #16: FINALLY getting the time, chance, and reason to write a real post again!
Before we got real brains, my sister and I always thought we were way cooler than we ever were. So it eventually becomes painfully and awkwardly embarrassing when we look through old notebooks or do a hardcore room-clean. I’m cleaning out my sister’s stuff from my (new) room and I found a huge stack of notebooks.
Just now, something fell out of one. I was going to type it up here because it’s about my pets and completely stupid and hilarious if you know who they are and it’s 12:48 am.
…..But in an even more recent just-now, I realized how absolutely dumb it would be if I posted it here. The key phrase being: “it’s about my pets and completely stupid and hilarious if you know who they are and it’s 12:48 am.”
Now, the majority of the world’s population does not know who my sister is, and only my immediate family knows my pet history. And it’s more likely than not that no one will read my blog at 12:48 am. Therefore, it won’t be funny or amusing in any sense at all.
So yeah. Blog fail?
Oh! How Lovely! is giving away this amazing necklace! I found another Etsy store that sold several similar necklaces, but the lady lives in Melbourne, Australia and I can’t afford that shipping.
Anyway, it’s a free contest; anyone with a valid email address can enter! I’m supposed to tell you guys to go enter, but I don’t want you to so I have more chances of winning! Lol.
One of (if not the) blogs I view most often is Oh! How Lovely! She’s always got adorable things up and there’s always a giveaway!
This give away is for cute, retro art prints from Kerry Berry on Etsy! And you should so totally enter because they’re amazing. =]
