I should’ve turned off my computer half an hour ago, but I got distracted. I really need to be going to bed since I’ll be waking up BEFORE the crack of ass (dawn) for job #2, but I also remembered I have to write here. It’s the last day of Blogtober! Happy Halloween, hope you all had and/or are having more fun than I did.
I went to Nordstrom Rack today to find a dress for Amanda’s engagement party. I found one, and 2 others. Spent over $100, applied for their debit card and will be getting back $20 to spend again. I found 3 dresses and the one I want to wear to the engagement party is actually one size too small. So after purchasing it, I decided to hit up Meijer to restock my fridge with healthy foods (veggies) and then I did Jillian Michaels yoga. I am determined to fit into this dress. Even if I have to wear shapewear to make it zip after losing weight. It’s such a gorgeous dress though. It’s baby blue and white white brocade, box pleated skirt, 50s drop shoulder top. It’s by Topshop. It’s very high quality and it was only $54.97. Yet trust me, i still feel guilty spending the money when I should be saving for loan payments (which feel like literally taking my money by the handful and flushing it down the toilet willingly) and hopefully a new car.
I need a new job.
A high paying new job.
Oh, and Amanda asked my brother to stand up in the wedding so we’ll both be in the wedding party now. 11 bridesmaids, 11 groomsmen. It’s gonna be a massive wedding.
So it is officially not only Halloween (yay!) but also the last day of my 365 project. I’m still not sure if I want to do another round. I probably won’t, but I’ll still blog often. I think I just won’t get upset if I miss a day or something. Or rather not worry about it.
Anyway, today I got hit on by this freshman that has taken to hitting on me at every opportunity he can possibly grasp. I was decked out in my fox gear for Halloween, and he came up to me and basically acted like this:
Direct quote: “Hey honey, you look beautiful with all dat makeup on. I mean you love beautiful all the time, hahaha, you’re beautiful. So what time you get off work tonight? I’m here until 8.” I just wanted to be like…please stop talking and never breathe the same air as me again.
I guess that’s my life now? Getting hit on by ALL the peoples? Just not the right peoples. *Sigh*
Lastly, I got someone to buy my DSLR off me so I can upgrade. But I have a problem. I want to get the Nikon d3200 (I think, I’m still researching though) but my macro lens appears to not be compatible with the d3200 and I am really upset. I spent $454 on that lens. I feel like it’s a new enough lens that IT SHOULD BE COMPATIBLE WITH ALL THE FUCKING NIKON CAMERAS. Like, bitch! I don’t drop hundreds of dollars on shit just willy nilly. Come on now.
Alyza & Me
My brain is too overwhelmed for a “real” post tonight, so I’ll make it quick.
I found these lights on Pinterest and clicked to see where I could find them. Turns out, Restoration Hardware is selling these babies, so after work I rushed over there and bought a pack of the 5 ft sapphire lights (they were all out of the diamond ones, sadface).
I am far too excited about these lights, you guys. I’m going back to buy the diamond ones when they have them back in stock.
Oh, and btw, Day 1 of 2 of Halloween dress up days at school was today – I put a lot of last minute effort into piecing together my fabulous equestrian jockey outfit. Thank you, thank you very much.
And yes, I made that stellar riding crop using a dowel rod and scrap leather. *Bows*
Between classes today, I’ve been last-minute researching equestrian attire and accessories for Halloween. To back story this real quick, I bought a blazer yesterday after work and realized this morning that it looks pretty equestrian in color, cut and buttons. And it came to me that instead of being a snail tomorrow for costume day one at school, I could totally be a jockey/equestrian rider. All I’m really missing is a cap/helmet, gloves, and crop.
So anyway, about an hour ago I was on Pinterest just casually looking at equestrian related pins, and someone pinned a picture of riding boots with a caption about $28 so I followed the link and it led me to UrbanOG and I got lost in there for a good 45 minutes.
I found a pair of boots that I like that have a big enough calf circumference for my pretentiously oversized calves and in size 10 and in a color I like!
They only thing that bothers me is that they’re synthetic materials. I like to enjoy the “finer” things in life, and that includes leather boots, bags, and gloves and wool coats. I might end up getting them anyway though. You always need more boots.
So this year for Halloween, I’m gonna be a fox. I had planned to be a fox last year, but I didn’t buy ears or a tail at the Ren Fest, and this year I finally indulged! I bought makeup and more brushes to help in actually creating a fox face. I think I did a pretty decent job.
And if you’re a deviantart geek, you can totally favorite this by clicking here.
I’m still deciding whether I want to do full on fox face on Halloween day. I think I probably will. But I also have to do it to Alyza’s face, cause we’re being foxes together. It takes time. I’m not positive, but I think it took me like an hour to do this tonight. And I’m only saying that that because Pandora asked me if I’m still listening.
Thank god that I have this all set though. This term is shaping out to be more work than I had expected.
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!
