Barack Obama

I remember two Christmas's ago when I was talking crap about Hilary Clinton. For some reason, I can't stand that woman. (entirely different blog entry) But, I did fall in love with Barack Obama and changed my political party about six months ago. I feel like all the people who fell in love with Robert F. Kennedy in the 60's. I feel like we are ready for a change and he is the one to bring it. Tonight when I watched his special, I started bawling and had to call my friend Jamie, the only one who crys at simple things with me. We're peas in a pod ;) . But it really moved me and I'm glad I never doubted my descion to vote for him two weekends ago. I'm tired of education and health care and outshoring jobs and it needs to be fixed. And no, John McCain won't be the one to do it. But my blog isin't to bash people, okay Sarah Palin, I can see Russia too, it's called a map, but in serialness, all of you need to get off your asses and go vote. Just vote for whoever benefits your needs. Just don't bitch to me if you don't vote. I'll punch you in your face.

Dancing With The Stars- Hip Hop Edition!

So, I haven't been able to sit down and watch t.v much except for about three shows since school started and I honestly miss Dancing With The Stars. So I was able to catch it tonight and I kinda had a what the fuck face on for most of it. They did a group dance and it was hip hop and maybe I'm byist by working in the ghetto everyday, but THIS IS NOT HIP HOP! Even Lance Bass from N'SYNC couldn't save it. Which made me sad, because being the ever optimistic faghag, I think Lance Bass is HOTT. ;) But don't take my word for it.

*The video is kinda funky, but it was the only one that really wouldn't freeze.*

Monster Mash

This past Saturday Nick and I attended Chuckie's mom's annual Halloween Bash. ( Did that make sense?) I originally was going to go as a slutty Alice but at the last minute I matched my costume with Nick. He went as a vampire and I went as a slutty Can Can Girl/ Nick's Victim. You can't see but I have blood smeared on my Nick. We've been watching too much True Blood lately.

We also went with Nick's friends to go see Saw 5. It wasn't the best one in the series and it kinda disappointed me. But.......

If I woke up in the box below, I'd be kinda crappy feeling too. I must say, I wonder how the last and final installment is going to turn out. I want to play a game.........

Random Child Memory #247

Convincing my parents to buy me the soundtrack from Wayne's World and my dad reancting this class scene from the movie in his car. Priceless.

Happy Friday

I'm Not Saying This To Anyone In Particular...

but it's really starting to piss me off that people think that I have no life because

A.) I have no children and
B.) Because I'm not married.

I'm not going to sit here and bad mouth people who are these things because I get excited when these things happen to my friends and family. I'm very supporitive and willing to celebrate. But I do get naucous when I think about these things happening to me. I'm simply not ready for these things because they take a big commitment and I have other things on mind, mainly school and figuring out how to fund a Chanel bag. But people just assume because I don't have these things everything else I do just isin't important. And I'm not saying watching a South Park marathon with Nick or running away to Gay Days at Disneyland is as equally important as watching your kid walk for the first time but damn people, throw me a bone here. I have nothing to compare your life too! And it's not just one person that does this to me, it's alot of people. It is some friends and work and family. I do have a life. And I have started my own family. It may not be a husband and children, but it's a fiance who would do anything for me and people who hold my hand when I hypervenalite on a roller coaster and my vanilla mommy and two darling little creatures who live in my dining room table and depend on me for everything. And that too me is equally important. :)


p.s again, im not saying this into anyone particular so don't get your panties in a bunch. i'm just saying.

Clutter Be Gone

*How Nick sees me every morning, instead of on the bed it's the couch or closet floor....*

I can't remember when I started realizing I was a hardcore pack rat. I think when it came to going over to friends houses, I realized a) I really was living it up as a only child and b) I had tons of junk. Flash forward to the year 2008 and a) I don't really live it up as a only child anymore but its cool and b) I still have tons of junk. I'm surronded by clothes and knick kancks and useless upon useless shit. I don't even know why I own half the shit I own besides I feel guilt getting rid of things and I feel sentimental towards it. But why? It's just a freakin object. So I am making it my new mission besides getting healthy ( which I actually worked out and bought Trader Joes out of business last night) but I want to lead a cleaner more relaxed life. I am going to start cutting things out that just take up energy and give me no pleasure. First thing to go, the Avon link on the side bar. I love beauty products but just can't get into it. I hope by doing this I can put more time into my etsy store and if I get really strapped for cash, I can always pick up a side job like babysitting or making some cards for people who requested it. And I honnestly am going to start selling things I can sell on Ebay and Craigslist because even though the economy is in the crappy, people are stilling buying junk. Life is too short to waste time and energy on things that don't reward you. And I'm beginning to figure that out.

I don't like Uggs

But these keep callin my name over and over again in this nice grey. I'm sure for $144.00 I am going to keep drooling over them for awhile but I might sign up for some extra babysitting jobs when I feel better to pay for them. :)

My new Love

Nick needs to move over. These shoes I picked up today for $24.99 might be sleeping next to me tonight. They are Mia 2 in the style called Ridge.

A Hospital Room is Just like Every Other

I have been off and on tired pretty much since I started back with school. With school, work, having a fiance, friends and family, you might want to say my time is stretched to the t's. And I know you probably find this funny, but I hardly blog as much as I want to and I have even put a hiatus on scrapbooking which made me sad. So, I have had the worst cold and just couldn't kick it this past week and then guess where I end up? The hospital. Figures. I'm okay now but I honnestly thought I was going to pass out at the hospital. It was just an infection in my lungs which they sent me home with medicine to fix it right up. And I missed two midterms and a huge project in my political science class. I was able to wing some stuff but I am very upset about the whole mess.

I think I'm just venting on this blog but I'm glad I honnestly was sick and not just being lazy as I was. I was put on bed rest but I feel so much better. I am still pledging to take it easy, but I am also going to incorporate some fresh healthy foods, more rest, and better time management skills. So here's to taking it easy, at least until I go home next month for a mini vacation. :)

See A Penny, Pick It Up!

I don't really do this for the luck though. I do it because, pennies add up. So does dimes and nickels and quarters and spare dollars. Nick and I combine all our change which is pretty difficult since we both do not shop with cash ( we're big card people) but in a little over a year, we have saved about $175.00 together. Probably more if we cleaned out our cars. But since this change turned into big bucks has motivated me, I am now more determined to save save save! I love you pennys!

Motivate Me!

I am dying here. I am in Week Seven of school, two months after my 23rd birthday and into my second week of October. I am not caught up with school work, accomplished really any of my goals for my 23rd year or, decorated my house. This frustrates me. Why you ask? Because I constantly feel tired and want to take naps. And I doubt it's because I have something wrong with me. It's probably just me being lazy, to be perfectly honest. I don't feel like I have to be everything under the sun. I don't feel the utter most need to compare myself to people to be better than them. I just think I lose track of time and it frustrates me. Like, I really shouldn't be sitting her blogging. :O I should be slaving over alegbra problems. Should be are the keywords.I really want to not become a better person, but a better Athena. ( creepy, I just talked in thrid person) I want to achieve my goals and say, whoa, look what I accomlished! Don't I feel ten times better? It's just a question of motivation I assume. So my question to all of you is, what do you do to stay motivated?

The Other Boelyn Girl

Dear Other Boelyn Girl,
When I saw you on the shelf the other day, I decidedly put you in my pile. I meant to read you after the movie but you looked so intimading with all your pages, I shrunk back on fear. But since I had nothing better to do homework wise you appeared to be a good time killer and oh how you were.
I couldn't put you down. Not once. I haven't felt this way since Tori Spelling's autobiography. My mind raced back to royal courts, forbidden passion and cunning ambition. I do have to say I think Anne Boelyn is a bitch though. She did some pretty screwed up stuff to Mary. But I kept wondering what was she, or any of the other Boelyns, were going to do next. Like get themselves banished to France. Or poison the Queen off. Suspense suspense suspense! All for Anne and George getting their ass on that chopping block.
I give you five outta five stars Other Boelyn girl. You kept me reading when others lately chose to fail. You kept my mouth dropping for more, all 738 pages of you. And that is why you shall wear those stars proudly!

Disneyland Pt One

I am exhausted. I spent 12 + hrs at the Disneyland but had the time of my life doing it. We took a late night car ride Friday to party it up all day on Saturday. We invented the hot mess game and over dosed on churros. We screamed our way through the rollercoaster twice and got dizzy during the teacups. We invented new sayings and counted red shirts. The night ended up being perfect by caping it off with "Last Dance" All in all it was pretty bad ass.

October Goals I mean Ideas

I nolonger have monthly goals. I never complete them which I'm not sure motivates me more or just depresses me. So now I have some "ideas" to help me along the way.

1. Eat healthy so I can fit into my Halloween Costume.

2. Use less electricity during my everyday life. And gas.

3. Eat less meat.

4. Start saving money for Chirstmas.

5. Keep my house clean for once.

6. Keep up with school work, reading and scrapbooking.

7. And last but not least, start a thankful journal.

I tend to see negativity and would like to change that. So I'm starting a thankful journal before I pass out. And on to see how this month portrays me!


Falling Into Fall

Typically, this is what fall looks like, which is beautiful in my opinion.

However, I live in Las Vegas which blesses my reality of fall like this:
How sad am I? But, I do like to pretend it's fall. I have become quite creative due to my many years in the desert. So instead of my favorite things about fall list, its going to be more like pretending its fall list. And I plan on pretending by:

1. Ordering Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks instead of White Chocolate Mocha. Mmm, Starbucks.

2. Hanging up all my cute Halloween decor. ( I plan on doing this next weekend when I have some time. )

3. Hot Chocolate.

4. Pumpkin Pie.

5. Yankee Candles which seduce me with scents of Vanilla Cookie, Pumpkin Pie & Apple Cinnamon.

6. Cute skinny jeans from Old Navy.

7. Cuter scarfs and hats.

8. Scary movies.

9. Daydreaming about leaf piles.

10 . Hoping that the weather will dip below the 90's soon.

I envy all of you that actually have seasons. I am seasonless in this desert. I only have hot, extremely hot and kinda cool. I would love to have a coat collection but honnestly the only thing u need hear is a slightly heavy peacoat and your good to go. So hears to me pretending!
