I am pretty much obsessed with this right now. Watch it. Seriously. Even if you don't like Britney Spears. It's NOTHING like Britney's version.

I forgot about this thing again.

I'm graduating on May 4th! Well, not really. That's when the ceremony is. I don't actually get my diploma until August because I'm a slacker and missed the application deadline. Stupid. That's what happens when you decide you can do everything on your own instead of meeting with an adviser.

I get to go to Disneyland in a few weeks! It's my graduation present from my parents. I'm super excited! Disneyland is my favorite place in the whole world. I'm stoked.

Hmmm...what else?

My life is pretty lame and uneventful, so there isn't much else to write about. Still the same shit, different day. Boys are still stupid. Nothing new. But hey, I'm finally graduating! Lord knows it took long enough haha.

Makeup Peeps!

Jan. 3rd, 2012 | 01:12 am

I just found out about this site called MakeupBee. It's basically a bunch of FOTDs, and it's AWESOME. So to my makeup friends who are still around, join and follow me, and I'll follow you back! I posted for the first time tonight, although the looks I posted are old. I need to get back into doing fun makeup again (and actually taking pictures on the rare occasion that I do fun or fancy makeup), so hopefully this will help!

Herro, friends. I'm sorry for being MIA. But it's just a fact that I come and go on here, and therefore I'm sometimes a shitty LJ friend. So yeah, sorry about that.

So...originally I decided I wasn't going to make any New Year's resolutions, because I never follow through with them. Yet I still have goals for the year so that's basically the same thing, right? So, scratch the "no resolutions" thing. Here is a list of things I want to do this year, in no particular order:

1. Lose like 20 pounds. The holidays have NOT helped my figure, haha. I'm afraid to step on a scale and see how much I've gained since the last time I got on a scale, which was in like mid-October. It's going to be VERY depressing when I actually do it. AHHHH. Maybe one year I'll get a bikini body, but I doubt that will happen without a personal trainer and a little bit of surgery lol (half kidding there). So that's highly unlikely. For now, I'll just go with the diet and losing about 20 pounds.

2. Get a decent job. I need to get a job, period, soon. So at first it probably won't be such a great job. I have finished my degree, but I won't technically graduate until May. So I'll probably (hopefully) be able to get a better one after that. A good job before that would be nice, but I'll take what I can get for the time being. Well, no...that's not entirely true. I have some standards. I'm kind of scared, because I have never had a full-time job before. I know, that's kind of pathetic, seeing as how I'm 26. But I have been super sheltered my whole life in a lot of ways, and I am SO far behind on the whole being an independent grown-up thing. I have worked full-time for a couple weeks at a time before, but that was at a part-time job during the holidays. I have never had an actual full-time job.

3. Become a decent guitar player. I got an acoustic guitar for Christmas, which I LOVE. I know it's going to take a long time to become a good guitar player (if that ever happens), but I'd like to at least be able to play more than a few little things by the end of the year!

4. Move out. Yep, another way in which I'm lame and not a grown-up. I have never lived on my own before. So I need to save up some money and move out. Honestly, it terrifies me. But I have to do it. I'm not getting any younger.

5. Figure out my school situation. I need to figure out exactly what I want to do. I have a tentative plan, but I don't know.

6. Work on some of my lame ass issues. I'll just leave it at that for now. I don't really feel like delving into that right now. In short: I need to work on coping mechanisms, self-confidence, and being independent. Basically, I just need to work on being happy.

Hmmm, that's all I can think of right now.

This guy at my old work that my friend Richard and I thought was sooooooo hot just got engaged. No fair! Lame, lame, lame. Not like I thought anything would happen between us, especially since I haven't worked there since the end of April, but STILL! Not fair. I'm way cuter than she is, too. I'm sure I'm way cooler, as well. Psh.

I'm going to be single forever. *sigh* I'm approaching old maid status!!! Poor me.

I said this before, but I'll catch up on journals soon. Like within a week or so. It's finals week. :\

Writer's Block: Starstruck

Dec. 9th, 2011 | 08:34 pm

Have you ever met anyone famous?

I have met quite a few.

Cuba Gooding, Jr. (He laughed at me. Hahaha.)
JC Chasez
Lance Bass
Mandy Moore
Willa Ford (bitch)
Summer Sanders (but she's not really a celebrity anymore...and was never really much of one)
Jodie Sweetin (when I was little and she was on Full House)
Dante Thomas (not a celebrity really, but he had a Top 40 song that was really popular in like 2001. It went "she's miss California, hottest thing in west L.A. House down by the water, something something something...")
Mark Eaton (a former Utah Jazz player who was really popular)

I know there are one or two more, but I can't think of who they are right now. It will come to me.

The two celebrities I MUST meet:
Britney Spears (and she should become my best friend)
Justin Timberlake (and he should fall in love with me and marry me)

BTW, I'll get back to reading all your journals soon. Sorry, I've kinda been on one of my LJ hiatuses.

Writer's Block: Bless you!

Dec. 5th, 2011 | 01:37 am

What are you allergic to?

The usual hayfever stuff
Some dogs (any that shed)
Horses (and probably zebras, I would assume)
Loose grass (so I guess grass...but it bothers me way more if it's loose.)

So...I've been thinking about getting into doing makeup again. Not as a career or anything, but just kinda something on the side. I do the occasional wedding, but those are few and far between, and it's always for people I know (except for one time, when it was a coworker of a friend). I did a fashion show once, but that was when I worked at MAC. It wasn't a job associated with MAC, but I did it with another MAC artist, so it wasn't independent freelancing.

I'm helping a friend out with a photo shoot next month. He's a photographer, and he's doing trade work for a few models. Since he's a friend, I'm just going to do it as trade work too. I don't want to ask him for compensation, because he isn't getting paid for it either. It's to build his portfolio. I need to build mine too, so it works.

He asked me if I wanted to model, and said he'd be more than happy to do photos for me, but um...no lol. I'm way too fat to model! I'm not fat, per se, but definitely not model material. Maybe if I was the size I was in high school. Buuuutttt I'm not. I got scouted at a mall once in 11th grade, but I didn't follow through with it. It's not like it would have been a big thing anyway. It was some Salt Lake company, I think. But now I'm too old and too fat for the modeling world. Not like I ever would have been a big model, haha. I don't have the model look, and I'm 5'7", so not quite tall enough. I'm super tall in some of the heels I have, but 5'7" flat-footed. But still. It might have been fun. Who knows. Oh well. I was extremely diet and weight obsessed back then, and I think it would have fed into that. It probably wouldn't have been a very good idea.

Anyway, I'm thinking about starting up a freelancing page on Facebook, and then eventually a website. We'll see. Sometimes I go on these idea kicks, but then I never follow through with them. So I don't know.

Guys and Guitars

Nov. 27th, 2011 | 07:32 pm
mood: blahblah

This is not an entry about how I think guys who play the guitar are hot. That's true, but it's not what I'm writing about.

I have this old butt rock electric guitar from the 80s, and it has a broken string. The strings are strung differently than modern guitars. They have little ball things at the bottom. I guess it was popular in the 80s. Anyway, I asked my cousin and a couple friends if they knew how to change guitar strings like that, and they didn't. However, two other guys I know do. The only problem? I don't want to see them.

The first guy is crazy. We were friends years ago, and he had a thing for me. I haven't seen him for a few years, but we have talked a few times over the past few years. Anyway, I posted something about my guitar on Facebook a few weeks ago, and he responded (both on Facebook and via text). He said he has a guitar like that, so he knows how to do it, and he said that he'd change the strings for me. The only problem is that I know he won't leave me alone if I hang out with him. He'll start texting me all the time. This guy is seriously pretty crazy. He's just unstable. Plus he recently told me that he would marry me. No, I did not ask him lol. He just told me that he would marry me. Uh...no. He has been in Cali for a while for some work thing, and he texted me yesterday saying he was back. I didn't respond. I just barely texted him back, because he'll just keep texting me if I don't. Of course he replied immediately. He said "I want to string your guitar. :-)" Dammit. Then he asked when I'm free. I lied and said I need to find out what days I'm babysitting my niece this week. That gives me time to decide when I want to deal with him. I can't get out of it though. I have to hang out with him. Lame. He wrote back saying he was excited. Lame, lame, lame, lame. FML.

The second guy is a friend I also haven't seen for a few years, but we talk sometimes. The problem with this one is that he is (or at least was) in love with me. We never dated or anything. Never kissed, never even so much as cuddled. Strictly a platonic friendship. But he told me on a few occasions that he loved me. This guy is super cool, and he is SO nice to me. He's fun, sweet, and funny. I'm not at all attracted to him though. Not.at.all. This sounds extremely shallow, and I suppose it is...but if he was attractive, I'd probably date him. But he's not. I'm fine with being friends, but if we start hanging out again I'm afraid it will get awkward. That's the reason we haven't hung out for a few years. I just don't really want to deal with that.

I should have just taken it to Guitar Center by myself or something. But having someone I know just do it for is a lot easier. Still, it's probably not worth it. I already told the first guy I mentioned that he could do it, because I didn't realize he'd be home from California so soon. asldkfjsalkfjweoifjowiejfoiwejflsefj. <---That's frustration.

I'm getting an acoustic guitar for Christmas, but I'll need to get new strings put on my electric at some point anyway.

The guys who like me are never the guys I like, and vice versa. Funny how that works out. I have the worst luck with guys ever, I swear. I'm great at "attracting" gay guys. Too bad that doesn't help me much.

Apparently Ryan Reynolds is in town. My friend just posted something about it on Facebook. Apparently he rented a car from the place right next to her work or something like that. I commented and said, "He wants to marry me but just doesn't know it yet. Would you please inform him?" I'd be down for that.

I need input.

I can't decide whether or not this would be a good gift idea or a bad gift idea.

So, my big brother died of pancreatic cancer in September 2004. I just found out about these necklaces that benefit pancreatic cancer research. I can't decide if this would be a good or a bad thing to give to my sister-in-law and my mom. On one hand, I know they'd want to support pancreatic cancer research. On the other hand, I think they might be a sad reminder. I want one for myself, but I'm not sure if it would be a good thing to give to them. I can't decide.

What do you think?
