Today is technically the last day of the 30 day NANOWRIMO pre-challenge, but I think I might extend this to possibly be a 365 project. Maybe. Probably. It should get me more hits, right? I’m determined not to have this blog poop out like my other ones. I think the problem with my other ones is that they’re topic based. This is more freestyle.
Anyway, today I went to work as a cat, and so did my boss! I was expecting her to be a nerd because that’s what she said she was probably going to show up as, but when I opened the door, I saw her costume and I laughed and I was like “we’re twins!” It was cute. I would post a picture of both of us, but I’m not sure how she’d feel about that. So instead I will post this great picture my mom took of me jumping out in the backyard before the trick-or-treaters arrived. I decided I would call myself Pandacat because even though I have a cat tail and whiskers, my ears look pandaish. PANDACAT.
HAPPY HAPPY PANDACAT
There is nothing else to talk about because today was quite uneventful. Like I predicted: no parties, no drunkenness, and no slutting it out. Although I did do the skanky panda look.
Amount of things I did today that contributed to my homework assignments: 0
Amount of things I did today that were pure fun: quite a few. :D
Including grocery shopping with my dad [which doesn’t sound like fun, but it was. I got sushi and drinks, yummo!] and making my mom get out of the house for about 10 minutes to take pictures of me jumping because I felt the need to capture my hair in motion. There’s a lot where she captured me genuinely laughing and while I think they’re not that attractive, they are attractive in the sense of “hey look, a genuine emotion.” You know?
This is my favorite in terms of motion of the hair.
I can’t wait for this term to be over. Only one more week and then a week full of freedom to do anything I want and wake up whenever I want with no alarm!! But it’s all bittersweet. All the cool kids are graduating. Which really is quite depressing. This will be the third time I’ll have gotten close with coworkers only to have to say goodbye so soon. I want to say that it’s not like we’ll never see each other again, but it’s probably somewhat true. I can look back on any friendship from high school and early college and say that those who graduated have not kept in touch. But it works both ways. Life gets in the way. It’s how these things go. Nothing you or I can do but move forward. Right? Right.
Nostalgia aside, tomorrow is Halloween! And I’m kind of excited even though I’m pretty sure I’m going to be a loner as usual, not getting drunk via keg-stands and whoring myself out with friends. I’ll be dressing up as a cat I think. Although I was just about to go Google panda makeup and see how to do it in case I do a last minute change. I watched Heidi Klum’s vlog thingy on AOL earlier today about her costumes. She has incredibly strange taste in Halloween costumes, but I kinda like it in that weird way. So I checked back to AOL a few minutes ago and saw this article where I found this fantastic picture of Kim Kardashian. I really don’t like Kim Kardashian for many reasons, but I am in love with this take on Ivy. Makes me wish I was Ivy for Halloween!
Aaah!! I knew I should’ve posted while it was still daylight out. I missed my posting time slot for 10/29 and it is officially 10/30 here in the EST time zone, so technically, I missed a day in the 30 day post challenge. But it is currently only 15 minutes after midnight as I’m typing this, and that feels like the same day to me, so I’m going to count this as yesterday’s post and there will be another one in about 20 some hours.
The reason I’m so late writing this is because I worked and then I came home and watched The Princess of Montpensier which was quite an excellent period piece that I believe was part of the Sundance Film Festival. At least it was a Sundance Pick or something like that. I recommend it for anyone interested in the 1500s Renaissance period, particularly in France. The guy that plays the Duke of Anjou is the hottest Duke of Anjou I’ve ever seen. And I’ve seen quite a few because I love watching Renaissance era movies. Ya’ll should watch this movie just for the sexy eye-candy that the Duke of Anjou is.
I also sold a nice amount of items at Job 2 tonight. Although I worked with Job 2 boss, and she scares me a little. In somewhat of a good way, but mostly in a “oh shit, I’m gonna fall apart” kind of way. I never feel quite at ease with her. I prefer Job 2 Mini Boss because if I mess up on something, she has a calmer way of handling it. Life.
Lastly, the other day when I VCAST Song IDed Alexandra Stan’s Mr. Saxobeat and I saw her name, I was like “this chick’s gotta be Romanian.” and lo and behold, she is. Makes me proud to be Romanian. Enjoy the video:
So I went shopping at Sears with my mom, with somewhat of an intent to buy some boots for the winter, came out with these UK Style by French Connection booties. They were marked down to $49.99 and are surprisingly very comfortable. So I couldn’t just leave them there. However, purchases like this always make me feel a twinge of guilt. I live a rather hardcore freeloader life here in my parents house. I don’t pay any bills, not even my student loans, which I know I should be doing. I don’t get my own gas. I can’t pay my own phone bill because it’s bundled. But I do pay for Netflix…although that’s more luxury than necessity.
Somewhat relatedly, I’ve been meaning to talk about this for a while, but I never remember to when it comes time to write up the posts. It really annoys me when people who have a lot want more. Before I elaborate, I should mention that this is a rather hypocritical statement, as I too am human and I too have a continually unsatisfied taste for more.
That aside, like I said, it annoys me. Sometimes it pisses me off too. I just feel like if you’re already well endowed with riches, you should stop trying to win stuff. And if you make the moneyz, then you should spend your money on quality clothing and upkeep yourself. That’s another pet peeve I have in that regard. People who earn good money should spend it on good things. Don’t be a cheapskate. Don’t buy shit from Wet Seal and 5-7-9. Go to Nordstrom Rack and Tommy Hilfiger and shop for what your money desires to be spent on.
That said, we also stopped by Meijer after the mall, and I only spent $12 on quite a lot of food. Including Welch’s tropical fruit juices!
Lastly, I saw an article on AOL earlier about South Africa banning this commercial because it quote “offended Christians” and I thought that was slightly hilarious.
Today was a fantastic day. I was dressed as Cupid and there was Spidecape and Link and Thor among others and I totally WON THIRD PLACE AT THE COSTUME CONTEST!! :D Yaaay $20 Target giftcard!
I took all sorts of funtime pictures and my finals are coming together really well and everything is awesome and I still feel like I’m wearing my Cupid wings even though I took them of like 3 hours ago.
I have nothing else of substance to say other than how excited I still am. Despite wanting to fall asleep right now.
