Peace out, oh eight.

Koua posted a note on Facebook talking about the highlights of his year, and I wanted to do the same. Mine probably won't be as good as his because my memory, or my brain in general, doesn't work too well. ;]

January: Nothing too exciting happened, that I can remember. I think that's when Stephen got his tattoo and we made some bomb ass homemade pizza.

February: That's when I got my new bed! I was excited, it even has a canopy, but I don't have one that matches my sheets haha. That's when my mom finally met Shane when we went to his Pride Players thing. I hung out with Micah after not seeing him in a million years. :] I had a pretty adorable/romantic Valentines Day. We were eating this amazing dinner he cooked for me by the fire and his dad came in and turned on this really pretty celtic-type music, hahaha. I tried to dye my tips pink but it didn't show up super well.

March: I found and purchased my prom dress. I got my first turtle, Monster! I went to the Back in Time dance to sell stuff to rasie money for newspaper. I looked really cute but it was a really crappy night. =/ I celebrated my one year with Stephen and he bought me Godfathers.<3 In the pictures I look like I had been crying... I wonder why because I don't remember that, ha.

April: I went to Cali for the j-lism convention with Andrea, Jessica, and Jake. My camera got a bunch of salt water in it from when we went to the beach and I thought it was broken but later it magically started working again. It was just really fun. :]

May: Prom! We went to dinner with Nicalette and Shane, and it was just overall pretty fun. I got my mom a pretty necklace for mothers day. The bomb threat at school! Hahah, that was one of the best days, no lie. End of junior year.

June: I attended this summer writing workshop, it was okay I guess. Stephen and I went swimming with his sister at her aparment complex a few times. The Cobra Starship on Nicalette's birthday! That was fun. I felt more confident about myself and finally bought a bikini... and wore it. I could still use a little toning up though. Ryan and I got our first dog, Brutus! I think this was the month I got rid of Monster...

July: I worked all day on the 4th and then went to the country club to watch fireworks with Ryan, my mom, and Stephen. It was pretty. :] We spent a lot of time taking care of Brutus. I got my new turtle. He was so tiny, like seriously the size of a fifty cent piece. Awh, he's gettin' bigger but I still love him. I was trying to practice my makeup skills more.

August: I got my hair dyed and highlighted at the salon. It cost a lot, but it looked hot. I got my senior pictures taken. I went to my dad's company picnic at FunPlex, went swimming a lot, and had one of my flip flops fall off on one of the rides. That was a pretty fun day. I got my running shoes, which I don't use often enough. I made my first MAC purchase and that's when my extreme makeup addiction started. I don't remember what I did on my birthday, except for that I had an early out and I went to Sephora and stuff with Stephen and his sister. I had a "party" with family but I don't think that was on my actual birthday. I made my second MAC purchase from the Cult of Cherry collection, and I still love that fucking Spiced Chocolate quad.<3 I went to a few places with Bekka and that creepy guy at dollar tree talked to her. "I saw you shakin' them hips to the YMCA." Lmfao.

September: I got this unflattering homecoming dress and took it back. Bought more MAC. We had to get rid of Brutus because he was really aggressive. That sucked. =/ Bekka and I got in trouble for taking pictures in Walmart. We got Blaze, our new puppy. Awh, he was so little. I went to the pumpkin patch with Stephen and enjoyed acting like a kid again. Bekka and I made a lot of stupid videos this month, lol.

October: I used fake eyelashes for the first time. I made these deliciously adorable Halloween cupcakes with Bekka and took an hour to decorate 12, haha. Oh, it was homecoming week! Rockstar day was favorite, I wore fishnets and super teased my hair. Haha, I probably looked like a prostitute. I decided that I would never again put aluminum foil in my mouth because that shit hurts. Stephen and I got super lost trying to get to the homecoming game, and it ended up being really boring, so we left and got Godfathers. :] Homecoming was fun, even though the zipper on my dress is kind of a pain in the ass and my heels killed my feet. Stephen and I practiced making scary looking cuts with makeup, lol. We had Spooktacular at the zoo and I dressed up like a zebra! That was hot, haha. Halloween was really fun. I helped my mom with her kindergarden class party and got mistaken as the mother of a 5 year old, oh jeez! =/ I walked around with Bekka, Tami, Erin, and Stephen... and went to a haunted house with Stephen and Suzi.

November: I got my heart broken... twice. =/ I saw Kyle again after not seeing him for months.<3 I went to see Twilight with Ryan, Suzi, and Johnny and my brother made me laugh for like 10 hours straight. "I'm straight and even I'm starting to fall for him!" I got my Coastal Scents 88 palette from Stephen, holy shit I love that thing. I got grounded for something stupid after not being grounded for a really long time. Thanksgiving was nice, I hadn't seen my aunt much lately and it's been nice being able to spend more time with her.

December: I started hanging out with Garret more, that's my bestie dude.<3 I went to the Hollywood Undead concert with Andrea and made fun of nasty kids in the mosh pit and 12 year olds who were in love with us, ahahaha. I started hanging out with Aramis more, that's been nice. Audrey's birthday party! That was fun, I hope she thought so too. I got closer to the newspaper staff, especially Tristan.<3 I had a baby with Log Watts, it's a beautiful girl with long hair, lmfao. I got married to Suzi but she's a terrible wife, to be honest. Haha. I had a pretty simple, but nice Christmas with my family and spent the day after with my dad's family. I reconnected with a lot of old friends, and I'm getting closer to a lot of people. I love it! Tonight will be fun too. :]

I don't think this has all the emotional type stuff, because I was looking through pictures to try and see what I did, and obviously I wasn't taking pictures while I was bawling my eyes out or when I couldn't stop smiling.
So really, this little timeline sort of sucked, but oh well.

I can't fucking wait for 2009. :D

Thanks for the memories.

What happens when you miss your past, but you know that things can never go back to how they were?
What are you supposed to do then?

Oh well. I am optimistic about the future.<3

People you may know.

Random thought: Today was the first day in a long ass time that I didn't wear makeup.

You know how Facebook has that "people you may know" thing, and how now Myspace has it too? Well, I was really bored today and so I clicked on it (the Myspace one.) I don't know why because I never find people I know, or people I know well enough to want to add.
But I just kept clicking "see more" and after a few clicks, Scott's page came up.
I knew it was his before I even clicked but I opened his page anyway.
I don't know why, but I automatically checked the "last login" thing, like I expected it to be today or yesterday or something. But it wasn't, it was October 9th. Two days before he died.
I just kind of miss him, you know?

Fucked and left for dead.

Last night was pretty fun. :]
Staying up until 4:30am, even though you have to work at 10am, getting less than 4 hours of sleep to spend time with people you love and actually not being tired for work is also pretty fun.

And then reality hits you.
And you realize that it happened again. It's just another game.
You're always playing this fucking game, and you're not as good as you think you are, so you're the one getting played.

I'm so tired of people telling me how pretty I am.
Really? Because sure, maybe I'm pretty. Pretty enough to fuck, but not pretty enough to date.
This is how it always happens.
"I just don't want a girlfriend right now" roughly translates to "I don't want to be with you, but I want to keep fucking you"
I'm not even saying this like I'm sitting here fucking people. I mean it with even just like anything remotely sexual or whatever.
Ha, this always happens. I should be used to it right?

I'm just a toy, really.
doll: a small replica of a person; used as a toy.

Slippin' down a slide, I did enjoy the ride.

I feel like I need to blog, but I don't know what to stay.

I'm in a shitty ass mood.
Apparently there is a big "use me" sign on my forehead, and I was compeltely unaware of it.
I'm lonely and people take advantage of that, and I let them because it makes me happy, makes me feel good.

The past couple years of my life were just one big joke.
But I don't even care.
I'm craving pizza and someone to cuddle with, two things I won't be getting tonight.
Lovely. =/

Sunday, December 14, 2008


This blog is just for Audrey.
Because I don't know what to blog about.
And because I absolutely love her.
And because she just turned eighteen! :D
And because I get to hang out with her a shit ton tomorrow.
Well, today.
And because I'm pretty effin' excited about it.

Oh yeah, did I mention that she's amazing?
I love you Audrey,
I'm so glad I didn't have to sign up on eharmony to find you.
Happy birthday babygirl, I hope you have fun with me & Jess today. :D

I'm afraid to admit that I'm scared.

I'm blogging, just for Audrey. (:

I've got a lot of feelings, and a lot of thoughts. I don't know where they come from, but sometimes I'd really like to just shut my brain down and tell myself to fuck off.
I like someone? Well, I guess two people. But I told one I didn't want to do anything because I liked the other. I mean, I don't want to date anyone, but I feel weird just liking and messing around with two guys at the same time. Ha, I don't know. I'm afraid that things are gonna be weird now that I said something, like I'll regret it, but oh well. I think I'm just paranoid, really.

Also, everyone's talking about these colleges they got accepted to and it freaks me the fuck out because I haven't applied to any yet. =/
I used to be excited for growing up and now I'm just absolutely terrified.
I don't want to apply, it's too much work.
I don't want to even go because I'm afraid of being alone, and everyone's just going different places.
I just don't want to face life, or reality.
I want to go back to being a little kid when everything was a million times easier.
I need a hottie with a time machine, please. (: Hahah.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure people should stop trying to talk to me about Stephen.
Because I really don't give a fuck.

Basically. I am so fucking scared of the future, to the point where I just don't want to deal with it. AT ALL.
fuck my life. hah.

Thursday, December 4, 2008

Say that I'm the only one, but I know it's just a lie.

I was talking to Bekka about this, and I figured I might as well post a blog about it.
I don't think I've completely thought out how I feel about this, but this is roughly my opinion. Feel free to disagree.

I honestly do not want to be in a relationship. I don't see the point.
You're with someone for who knows how long, and then it ends. And it hurts.
I don't believe that there is one person out there for me, one person that I'm supposed to be with forever.
I do believe that love is important and well, the best thing maybe even the greatest achievement, in life. I believe that people were meant to love and form relationships, but I mean this as friend and family bonds as well as romantic types.
Some people say you only fall in love once, but I don't believe that either. Most likely, you will love more than one person in your life, and I don't think one love will outweigh the rest, they will just be different kinds of love.
People break up after dating for years, being married for years, and I feel like that just proves that you are not meant to be with one person. Many people who stay together for years have crappy, unhappy relationships anyway. =/
So, I don't see the point in being with someone. Why tell them all my secrets and pull them closest to me so that they can leave?
But then, I don't want people to think they can just take advantage of me because I don't want to date...

Who knows, dude.

I dreamed I was missing...

I felt like that song needed it's own post, hah.

So, I'm feeling pretty lonely right now.
But I don't really want to call anyone, and I don't know...
I'm just really scared that it hasn't fully hit me yet,
and that one day it's going to and it's going to hurt just like it did before. Or worse? :|

And, about the friend I was talking about earlier.
Yesterday I felt silly for writing that post because we hung out and it was fun.
But then today, we were going to hang out and they just didn't seem to want to, and I called them an hour ago, just to talk, not hang out, and they haven't called back.
I guess I shouldn't put so much trust in one person.
But they make me happy when they're around. =/
I don't know. Blah.

Boston by Augustana.

Honestly, I love this song. I feel like it was meant for me to hear, although I don't know why.
I could listen to it on repeat for the rest of my life.

In the light of the sun, is there anyone? Oh it has begun...
Oh dear you look so lost, eyes are red and tears are shed,
This world you must've crossed... you said...

You don't know me, you don't even care, oh yeah,
She said
You don't know me, and you don't wear my chains... oh yeah,

Essential yet appealed, carry all your thoughts across
An open field,
When flowers gaze at you... they're not the only ones who cry
When they see you
You said...

You don't know me, you don't even care, oh yeah,
She said
You don't know me, and you don't wear my chains... oh yeah,

She said I think I'll go to Boston...
I think I'll start a new life,
I think I'll start it over, where no one knows my name,
I'll get out of California, I'm tired of the weather,
I think I'll get a lover and fly em out to Spain...
I think I'll go to Boston,
I think that I'm just tired
I think I need a new town, to leave this all behind...
I think I need a sunrise, I'm tired of the sunset,
I hear it's nice in the Summer, some snow would be nice... oh yeah,

Boston... where no one knows my name... yeah
Where no one knows my name...
Where no one knows my name...
Yeah Boston...
Where no one knows my name.

Sunday, November 30, 2008

You don't know, you don't even care.

I'm very surprised at how much easier this has been.
It hurts, yes, and well, I think maybe it doesn't hurt as bad because it doesn't feel real.
I hope things don't come crashing down and hurting more, I like it better just hurting but still wanting to move forward with my life.
I just get lonely a lot.
I don't know who to turn to...
the people I try to, I don't know. I think they'll be there for me but then they just... don't call back.
Hah, so I'm basically talking about one person, that I really want to be friends with, I just don't really know what's up? Whenever we plan to hang out or they say they'll call back, they don't.
It just bugs me. I think they want to be my friend, but I just don't get what the deal is.

Blah, I don't want to go to school tomorrow.
But yay for early outs, I guess. I'll probably just get bored and lonely. =/

It’s not enough
It’s not enough
It never was or will be
I never had the chance to thank you
for ripping out my heart."

P.S. Ever since the first time I heard the song Boston by Augustana it has been the most beautiful song I've ever heard. I love it.<3

Just a loser with a broken heart...

Me & Stephen broke up.
I think it's for good this time.

I know I'm going to be okay,
but it hurts and it's scary and I just don't want to go through the whole hurt and healing process.

But, the way he's been since we got back together...
it wasn't the same. I think I know he wasn't the one for me.
I just wish he was so that I wouldn't have to hurt. :(

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

one step closer to the edge.

I haven't been grounded in a reallyyyy long time.
It feels so weird.
I wonder how long it'll be for.

Jeez, this is SO weird.
I really don't want to type out all the shit, but it's for a pretty stupid reason that's basically my fault.
It just sucks though?
I love how parents freak out on kids and scream at them, treat them like shit, & punish them.
I think that if my parents would just sit down and calmly talk to me about why they're mad, why it's not okay, etc it would be a LOT better. Especially since they were doing the same damn things when they were young?
Oh well. I don't have to stay here much longer, well, it might have to be another year still. :|
I don't know what to do.
I don't want to hurt my mom by leaving, or get in a huge fight with her, but it's bound to happen.
I just want to be happy with my life and get rid of all this crazy stress and hurt that she constantly causes me because she's stressed or hurt.
Blahhh. It's not fair.

P.S. I haven't blogged enough lately so this is for Audrey. (: Seriously, I wasn't even going to log onto blogger but I promised her I'd blog tonight. And it made me feel a little better, so thanks Audrey I love youuu!

I like a girl with caked-up makeup.

I made this layout forever ago, but I couldn't figure out how to get the comments to show up. Today I decided to mess around with it again and I fixed it! (: I'm not sure if I like the layout anymore though, I don't like how the entries and comments are set up I guess. Oh well... I'll change it one day.

I made my Christmas list today! I want gift cards and money mostly, for clothes and makeup of course! I also want one of those wool peacoats as well as those snowboarding boots I already posted and some thermals and pj pants from Victoria's Secret Pink collection.

Also, the CS 88 palette came to Stephen's house on Friday. I ended up having to stay after school to finish my page for newspaper and so he gave me a ride home and gave me the palette! I'm in love with it already. I used it to do a red/black makeup look that night when I went to see Twilight with Ryan, Suzi, & Johnny. Obviously the book was better, but I loved the movie! I wish they wouldn't have changed so many little details, but aside from that, for the time and budget they had, I think they did really well. I want to see it again! <3 I used it again to do this cute yellow/green look today. I have to give it back to Stephen on Tuesday though - so he can wrap it and give it to me for Christmas! :P He thought I was just going to use it for Friday but I couldn't help it today, I saw this pretty look on a Youtube video and I wanted to try it.

He had a bad night at work and so I went to his house for a little while this morning. Which of course caused my mom to to bitch about how our relationship is too serious and blahblahblah. I'm so tired of it, she's always complaining about shit and it's just rude and unnecessary. She's only happy if you do whatever she wants and if you don't, then you're "not even listening to her and you don't think she knows anything." Blah, I'm done with it. Anyway, we got doughnuts and chocolate milk at Bakers, it was yummy! I haven't had doughnuts in quite a long time.

Otherwise, I need a new job because I get no hours at the zoo. I'm not mad about it, the winter season is slow as hell, it's expected, but I need to work more than 4-6 hours a week so I can get some money in the bank!

And... I really want to write. I just want to write so bad, something beautiful. I just have no ideas of what to write about, like always. I fail. :|

Thursday, November 20, 2008

Sick of school.

I just want to quit school and do makeup all the time.
That is truly all I want.

Monday, November 17, 2008

Super excited!

I'm super excited, I order my 88 piece makeup palette today (the one I posted about two days ago.)
My mom was bitching at me telling me that I couldn't order it and that I shouldn't use Stephen's card, so Stephen told me to order it, have it shipped to his house, and it would be one of my Christmas presents. :) So I did! Hah.
I'm super excited to get it, EXCEPT, he said I have to wait until Christmas which is super unfair because I gave him one of his presents awhile ago. I'm going to try and convince him to give it to me earlier. :P

Sunday, November 16, 2008

But now you've got to humor all these fools.

I'm back to one of Blogger's plain old templates because I was tired of that layout and I can't find any that I like.
I need to just cave and make one, but I just DO NOT want to code it. I hate coding. :( Haha.

I am still really freaking excited to order my Coastal Scents palette, which I will probably be doing on Tuesday. I need to cash my check on Tuesday as well.
Speaking of money, I really need to find a new job! I like mine, but it doesn't pay well and I only work about 6 hours a week... that's just not cutting it! I'd love to work somewhere that I could have outrageous hair colors, because I'm getting quite bored of my hair, but I still want to grow it out. There's always the option of dying it, but I've had a lot of colors. I'm tempted to go blonde, I mean, I really sort of want to, I'm just afraid of messing it up or just looking terrible.

Last winter I really wanted to learn to snowboard, but I never did. I still really want to and I think I'm going to try and make it happen this time! I saw these BEAUTIFUL snowboarding boots in cosmogirl! and well, I'm fersure putting them on my Christmas list. Speaking of that, my mom keeps telling me to make one, but every time I put stuff on there, people hardly get me anything off of it? :( Hah, oh well. I don't have many wants, just a lot of money for things like clothes and of course, makeup.<3

Oh yeah, check out the boots that I can not live without:

I hate the way I've been writing my blogs lately, it's very... sloppy.

Saturday, November 15, 2008

I want you so much!

I keep going to Audrey's blog and being sad that she doesn't update every freaking day so that I have something to read, haha. Then it makes me feel like I shouldn't because I never blog anymore. :|

Anyway, I can't wait until Tuesday because that is when cute boyfriend will let me use his credit card to order makeup!

It's only $21.95 for 88 different colors, practically every color you'll ever need! I've heard that the colors are very pigmented (except maybe a few?) and that the quality is very good especially for the price. The only "bad" thing I've heard is that the shadows are only about the size of a dime, but since they color payoff is good, you don't have to use much, so you'll obviously get multiple uses out of it.
While I wish there was more product, I'm still pretty excited! I think it will definitely be worth the money. I've read tons of reviews and it sounds amazing.

The worst part will be waiting. :(

Wednesday, November 12, 2008

The world has it's shine.

Stephen came over yesterday and talked to me, we're back together and just taking it slow, hoping we can work past our differences. :)

Also, I weighed myself yesterday, and I weigh 147 - with my clothes on! Haha, so maybe even a little less than that? I'm excited because that means I've lost 10 1/2 lbs since the end of May. Sure, it's not a lot for the time span, but I was only working out over the summer. I really do need to start again. I feel like I've got my eating under control now. Ever since Thursday I've been pretty disgusted by fast food and and most junk food. I think that's part of it, but I'm not complaining, I've been dying for this kind of self control! Haha.

Friday, November 7, 2008

With you gone...

I'm just sitting here upset hoping that today he will call me.
I want to call him but I can't do that.
I just want him to call me and tell me that he loves me, and that he knows we can fix this.
I know we said we were trying, but I could've tried so much harder, and I WANT TO.

It sucks, sitting here wondering what he's doing, wondering if he's as upset as I am or if he misses me, I just want him to call and make this all disappear. I'm just setting myself because if he doesn't it's just gonna hurt more.
It already hurts enough.

This isn't right, I know this isn't right.
We were meant to be together damnit. :(

Thursday, November 6, 2008

What the fuck? Is this even real?

This doesn't feel real.
What am I going to do?
He was my best friend.


I'm going to Bekka's.

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

But no one would listen, 'cause no one else cared.

High school is ridiculous.
Losing someone you thought was a good friend is ridiculous, especially when you don't know why.
I can honestly say that from the shit-hole that many called North High School, I have met one person that I would hate to live without. Most others will gladly be kicked to the curb on May 16th.

192 days.

PS: Who cares about the election, the Twilight soundtrack is released today! Hahah. Too bad I've got no money. Wait... I've got $12, so I think I can get it! :D I wonder if Target would have it... I'm about to go see.

PPS: Target didn't have it even though it was on their website. :( I guess I'll just wait until I get paid to hit up Hot Topic for the cd and lots of shirts/hoodies, haha.

Sunday, November 2, 2008


So... I finally finished Breaking Dawn, the final book in the Twilight series, maybe about an hour and a half ago. It was so wonderful! Although it has only put my Twilight obsession to a level it hasn't been before! I have been looking at Twilight stuff online for probably 40 minutes now, and it's only making me more and more anxious to see the movie.
I want to go get the soundtrack on Tuesday when it comes out, but I don't believe I have enough money, so will have to wait until I get my paycheck this weekend.
Another good thing coming from this mad obsession, is that finishing Breaking Dawn has made me want to write so much more! I think reading about Stephenie Meyer's inspiration for the books has also contributed. I really want to write, but I haven't a clue as to what to write about. She said that the story came to her in a dream, so I hope that I have some amazingly inspiring dreams tonight. ;)
Oddly enough, I wouldn't mind dreaming about Twilight tonight, haha. Even after reading the first three books, I could not understand everyone's obsession with wanting to be a vampire. But alas, after finishing BD, I think it would be pretty interesting. Haha, I feel like such a creep now! I think it has to do with my desire to have something as beautiful as Bella and Edward do. I hope one day Stephen and I's relationship can develop into something so timeless and beautiful.

Monday, October 27, 2008

Don't criticize me...

I have a hard time admitting this. But I'm going to - right here, right now.

I have this serious desire to become a model.
I just want to lose weight so I can do this.
I honestly want to go somewhere... I don't even know where, and get some feedback, but I'm so afraid of rejection.
I'm so terrified that they'll laugh at me for honestly thinking I was pretty enough.
And right now, I know my body's not in it's best condition. I really need to get on track with my diet/exercise.

On another note, yesterday was Spooktacular, our Halloween event at my work, so instead of wearing my yucky uniform, I dressed up as a zebra. :D



Wednesday, October 22, 2008

I had a really amazing talk with Aerts today, and I might major in journalism at UNO.
But, if I do become a journalist, I'd like to write for a magazine and not a newspaper.

Otherwise, I've just been thinking about how all of these people that I used to be pretty good friends with earlier in high school, don't even talk to me anymore. It's kindof lame. Oh well.

PS: This week Satin Taupe and Star Violet have become my favorite eyeshadow combination. (:

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

The future is scary.

I hate school and I hate homework! It doesn't help that I'm such a procrastinator. Ah well, only... about 6 months... :| I simply cannot wait to graduate!

I'm going to suck at college.
But whatever, I'm officially going to do what I want with my future.
I'm going to attend Xenon for makeup and possibly hair, and I'll attend UNO part time alongside of that (for who knows what yet!)
I really want to be an author. But I have no inspiration lately. :(
Luckily though, I've got plenty of makeup inspiration and can't wait for tomorrow (minus school!) so I can come home and play with some makeup looks I want to try. :D Hooray!

"This is not a cry for help, this is goodbye, I wish you well"

This is probably going to be an enormous post that won't capture how truly meaningful last night was, just so you know.

I'm too lazy/out of the mood to type out everything I felt before, when I first found out about Scott leaving this earth. So here it is, copied/pasted from myspace:
"I can't even believe this. Any of it.

I can't believe that you're gone. You were always so happy, it's just something that none of us expected. Every time I saw you, you were always smiling. It reminds me of that Blaine Larson song, "How do you get that lonely, how do you hurt that bad, to make you make the call, that having no life at all, is better than the life that you had. How do you feel so empty, you want to let it all go? How do you get that lonely and nobody knows?"
I remember physics last year, every day you came into class smiling and you would come and say hi to me. If I looked upset, you'd want to know what was wrong and you would try to make sure I was okay. You were always making us laugh, saying sweet and silly things, and you were always rappin like Lil Wayne. :)
And how you were taking all those silly pictures of yourself on my camera, and then you took two of me & you, and I looked absolutely terrible. So you said I could delete them if I wanted, and I did, only now I wish I hadn't.
And I can't believe how this affected me. We weren't that close, but it hurts. I think it's just that fact that even though I hadn't seen you much this year, even though I was okay without talking to you all the time, it's like now I know that I'll never see you again, now I'll never get to talk to you again. I just wish I could have been there for you with whatever you were going through. It's so weird just seeing that no one expected it, that no one knew what was going on. Maybe if you would have had someone there for you, this wouldn't have happened?
I don't want to believe that this is true. I just want to walk into school tomorrow and see you in the hallway.
I don't understand why you did this, but you're in a better place now and I hope they're treating you good up there.

R.I.P. Scott A. Tunstall Jr.
[11.24.90 - 10.11.08]
We miss & love you.<3"

I wish this had never happened, but it did and I'm okay with that.
Last night was the viewing, it was rough but I really do feel like it was something I needed to attend, and I think it really did help me to come to terms with what happened.
Audrey and I were supposed to hang out with Stephen but he was really tired, and had to work tonight, so he went to sleep instead. We really had nothing to do, so she asked if I wanted to go to this guy's shop. This amazing man is a barber, a minister, and a Christian rapper. And he's only 25! He wanted Audrey to design myspace layouts for his music and business pages, and since I love that stuff and wish I was better at it, I figured it would be fun.
He knew where we had come from, and in between talking about graphics and codes, we talked about life lessons and God and His plan for you. I felt like we were meant to go there last night and talk to him because I think it really helped us to get that final sense of closure. (:

Otherwise, I'm sorry that this blog sucked. Blogger deleted like half of my post even though I saved it as a draft last night, all of it must not have saved. I'm trying to get my writing talent back, but it's not working so well at the moment. :\

Spiral curling iron love.

Well, I didn't make all my goals because I'm quite lazy and unmotivated, but better luck tomorrow, eh?
I did finish my newspaper article, work out for 20 minutes, and make more than one person smile. ;) Haha.

I got this new spiral curling iron from Sally today. I went in like really close to when they were closing and I hope it didn't annoy them because I didn't take long finding what I wanted and getting it. I also signed up for a Sally card, so hopefully they weren't annoyed by that either as I managed to make it out the door at 9 which is when they close. :| Anyway, I can't wait until tomorrow morning because I'm really excited about trying it out! I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow.

P.S. I did not cry today. :)

Goals for tomorrow...

I mean to type a blog about Scott, but not tonight, I need to think it all out first. I have cried every day since, for various reasons, and no reason at all.

Also, I have a lot of goals for tomorrow, mostly health-related:
- Drink all 8 cups of water.
- Eat healthy all day.
- Do one hour of cardio after school (and reward myself with a delicious piece of cheesecake, courtesy of Stephen!)
- Finish my depression article for newspaper.
- Make someone smile.

I think that's all for now...

Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death amoung teenagers.

A friend of mine committed suicide on Saturday. We weren't very close, but obviously, I'm upset. It was something I would have never expected, especially from him.
Here are some interesting suicide and depression facts:

- 121 million people worldwide suffer from depression. (The World Health Organization)

-18 million of these cases are happening in the United States. (The National Institute of Mental Health)

-Between 20% and 50% of children and teens struggling with depression have a family history of this struggle and the offspring of depressed parents are more than three times as likely to suffer from depression. (U.S. Surgeon General's Survey, 1999)

-Depression often co-occurs with anxiety disorders and substance abuse, with 30 percent of teens with depression also developing a substance abuse problem. (NIMH)

-2/3 of those suffering from depression never seek treatment.

- Untreated depression is the number one cause of suicide, and suicide is the third leading cause of death among teenagers. (NIMH)

- Depression does not discriminate across age, race, gender, or class.

- There are also as many as 8.3 percent of teens suffering from depression for at least a year at a time, compared to 5.3 percent of the general population.

- The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that each year approximately one million people die from suicide, which represents a global mortality rate of 16 people per 100,000 or one death every 40 seconds. It is predicted that by 2020 the rate of death will increase to one every 20 seconds.

- Suicide rates within migrant communities such as African and East Asian Americans or the Black British community are, also of growing concern. Statistics show a rise but in some countries it can be difficult to calculate. For example, in the UK the place of birth is recorded on the death certificate, not ethnicity, therefore reducing data on suicides amongst minority groups.

I think I'm paranoid.

You know those girls who takes tons of pictures of themselves, and think they're super cute even though they're really not? Well, what if I'm one of those girls and I just don't know it?!

Saturday, October 4, 2008

They all want me, they all want me dead.

I got some new makeup remover tonight. I used to use the makeup remover pads from Almay, the purple ones, but found that I had trouble getting rid of a lot of the mascara and some of the eyeliner I wore. I now have the purple makeup remover from Almay, but in the bottle. I'm hoping this will be better? I've read some good things about it on specktra so I suppose I'll find out tonight.
I really want to see Nick & Nora's Infitnite Playlist. Stephen does too, so I'm going to ask if maybe he wants to go on Tuesday night. I just hope it's not as lame/disappointing as Juno was.

I plan to write some stuff about him and our relationship, but not in this post. Maybe tonight or tomorrow... who knows.

Friday, October 3, 2008

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there.

I'm really tired, and annoyed with just about everyone. I think it's time for bed.

But before that, I must mention one thing. I tried fake eyelashes for the second time today (while trying to come up with my Corpse Bride makeup for Halloween) and they turned out quite well! I didn't have much trouble getting them on, and none getting them off. (:
Check them out:
I used: (all MAC unless otherwise stated)
Blackground paint pot, Plumage e/s, Angel l/s, some neutral-ish lip liner from Avon, Studio Fix powder + foundation, Silver Dusk powder, Avon U2 black e/l, Covergirl lashblast mascara, and some false lashes that I got at Walgreens... I don't remember the brand.

What did you expect from me?

So I actually worked out tonight. (: I walked 10 minutes, ran 5, and did some different things to strengthen my arm muscles. So I didn't do all that much, but it's the first time I've worked out in probably two weeks.
I've just lost my drive. This always happens. I thought it wouldn't this time because that was the longest time I'd gone, just kept going and going, but of course, I stopped. And lately, I just feel like I've been getting fatter and fatter, especially my face and stomach, ugh.
So here's to starting over, and hoping things go well.
This is just the beginning, I'm sure I'll have to keep forcing myself because I just don't want to. Ugh, I can't explain it and it's really pissing me off.

I'm just so angry and stressed at this exact moment and I don't know why.

Dear God, I'm lost. I need you.<3

You said that you would die for me

Ever since the funeral, I've felt sort of odd. I feel like maybe I'm not really scared to die anymore. It just really reassured me that there was a heaven and that it'd be okay to die because there are some people I've been missing for far too long, and it would be really nice to see them again. And well, it made me want to start going to church again. I don't know, I mean, I just want to learn more about God and stuff, I know a lot of Bible stories and stuff because I went to church and sunday school all the time when I was younger, but now I never do... except on Easter and Christmas Eve. I just want to find a church with interesting sermons though, because I've been to lots of boring ones. Plus, I'm not a huuge fan of organized religion, I mean, I guess it has it's pros and cons.
People have really been bothering me lately. I hate when people act all weird about religion just because it's not something they have in their life. They make it sound so weird and are just all "Omg I'm not going to church, hell no!" Like, I don't understand why they act this way about it. This sounds so stupid but I can't explain it.

I looked up my order status for my makeup from MAC and it's been shipped. I checked out the tracking stuff and it's being shipped my UPS, everything is on schedule and it's supposed to arrive on Friday. Yay! :D I wish it were sooner though. I can't wait, asjghdasjkldgas!

I'm going to hang out with Stephen tonight. I wonder what we're going to do...
Oh, and on Sunday I tried fake eyelashes for the first time! It wasn't really too hard and they didn't get too messed up. I kept messing with one though so it started coming off so I just took both of them off. And then the second one I accidentally got a little glue on one of my real lashes and was so afraid that it was going to rip my real eyelashes out! Thankfully, Stephen helped me and it didn't. I just need to practice on getting it closer to my lashes, but not too close! I want to go get more. (: Haha.

Oh, y'know what else I think is funny? I love how when I talk about makeup people act all weird about it like "Oh hell no, that's too much to spend on makeup!" but then they're always asking if they can borrow/use it. Ironic, right? Not to mention, I don't spend all my money on makeup so someone else can use it. You say it's too much to spend but you obviously recognize that it's a good product, haah.

I'm tired of school, I'm tired of everything. I feel like doing homework, sitting in class for countless hours, selling people stuffed animals, cleaning the house... it's all just such a waste of time! You don't have that long to live as it is, and what's worse is that you don't know how long you're going to have at all. I can honestly say that if I died tomorrow I would regret not doing more with my life. I would regret not putting myself out there more, I would regret not doing things for me... I think that's what this is all about.
All my life I've been living my life for other people because I was scared about what they would think, or because I didn't want to get in trouble. But as of 10:13pm on Monday September 29th I am no longer going to do that. No one is going to tell me what to do or force me to do something I don't want to. I am going to do what I need to, what I want to, to make myself happy, to make my life worthwhile.
And shit, this is going to be so hard! I'm honestly scared, but I want to try.
I believe that life is all about love, so as of tonight, I'm going to love unconditionally and without fear.

Also, the left side of my mouth hurts really bad. :| I don't know why, sjdglsjagd.
I got some really cute earrings today from Claires, and fixed my turtle's tank, so now it will be easier to clean. Goodnight...

Saturday, September 27, 2008

I don't think that I have the strength to let you go.

I have a lot to say, but I don't feel like typing it all out. We'll see how it goes...

Let's start with yesterday. (: My dad must've felt bad that we have to get rid of Brutus, and so he bought a purebred black lab from one of his friends on Thursday night. He called my mom and told her about it on Friday and brought it to us as a surprise on Friday night when we were going to dinner.
It's so adorable! It's only 10 weeks old, so about 2 and a half months, and he's just so ajagdjlaskgd cutie! He already weighs 21 lbs, geez! Ryan and I slept downstairs with him last night and we bought him two cute toys and a halloween collar (which might be messed up and need to be returned) about an hour ago. I miss Brutus but this new guy is so adorable, and hopefully things will go better with him.<3

And about today... wow. I went to the funeral honestly believing that I would not cry. I was sad about his death but I hadn't cried and I didn't feel I was going to. I successfully tried not to cry until Michael started talking about his dad. Talking about all the things he had taught him, the things they had done, and how much he was going to and already did miss him. Needless to say, I started bawling.
After that, I was okay... until the end when we had to leave. I was waiting to see everyone, tell them how sorry I was, and I just started bawling again. I saw him lying there in the casket and I remembered all those little moments with him, how he'd always been so nice to me, and how it was never going to happen again. Then I looked at my friends, the people I'd known for so long, and saw how absolutely hurt they were, and that made it worse. I hugged Michael and Kyle while sobbing, and felt bad for not hugging Jackson, but I wasn't sure if he remembered me.
Then I had to come home and go to work. :|
My thoughts and prayers go out to this family.<3

This sucked, I wanted to say more, but oh well...

Thursday, September 25, 2008

It's so easy, a caveman could do it!

Remember that rant about people's misconceptions on serious relationships that I promised? Here goes. It won't be too long, I promise.
One thing that really bothers me about people's ideas about love and serious relationships is that they assume that it is easy. People are constantly telling me how lucky I am, and complaining that they can't be as lucky as me. I'm not going to say that I'm not lucky, because I must have some sort of luck to have found someone that I care about more than anything, who also feels the same towards me. It's beautiful. But, everyone is just assuming that "oh, I can't be as lucky as you, poor me" when I believe that most people in high school aren't ready for this kind of thing.
While these people are sitting around complaining about how they will never find true love, and pointing out how easily and quickly I found someone, they don't realize how much effort the both of us have put into this relationship. We have both been crazy, jealous, ridiculous while we have both done things that have rightfully made the other person this way. We hurt each other and we make sacrifices, come to something we can both agree on, so that we will never have to see the other hurt like that again. We put our relationship before everything else, and this is why we are still together, this is why we're still making it.
I don't know, maybe I'm completely wrong, but I feel that most teenage girls complaining about this would never make that kind of commitment and sacrifice (not that it's a bad thing, you're still young!) and that is why they don't have a more serious relationship.

On another note, I paid for my parking permit today, and I went to get it, but I need license/registration/proof of insurance. Go figure. The sucky part is that I'm only on my mom's insurance and the car I'm driving is my dad's. Since I'm not on that car's insurance I'm guessing that they aren't going to let me drive to school. It sucks. :| I'm going to try anyway tomorrow, but I'm not feeling too optimistic about it.

I get to see my babycakes tonight. :D I'm trying not to give up on school, sjkdghsjagdsjkdghlasj.

Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Am I lost in your eyes?

I honestly hate school. Graduation can't come soon enough.
I don't understand why an hour and a half in a class isn't enough, why is it that we must have tons of homework piled on top of that? It's ridiculous! Apparently, school is supposed to consume your entire life, right? Ugh!
Except I'm nervous about graduating too. All I know is that I want to move in with Stephen. He makes me happy and I feel that if I'm living with him, I'll be much happier and less stressed all the time. But, it's just going to a be a big argument that I don't want to have when I tell my mom that I want to move in with him. Why must everything be so difficult?
Also, I feel like everyone's going to deem me as a failure if I don't go to a 4 year college because I'm "smart." Honestly, I hate school and studying, and I'm not good at studying. Great, I can get A's and B's in high school, but these AP classes are almost kicking my butt! I don't even want to know what college is like.
When the counselor's came to our english classes to talk about college, he's like "oh well you'll all pick 4 year college because that where you're all going." Yes, I'm taking classes for college credit and one day I'd like to go there, but I honestly want to go to Xenon for makeup (and maybe hair?) before all of that. I feel like everyone is going to think less of me for it, or think I'm just wimping out. I don't know what I want to study in college and I don't want to spend all my money there before I figure it out. Plus, I LOVE makeup. It's something I want to do, no, maybe not forever, but for now.

Oh well, I'm done trying to please everyone, I'm doing things for me now.
Tomorrow I'll rant on people's misconceptions of serious relationships and love. Hooray.

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Sorry, oh, sorry.

This past week and a half has been so terrible. I was pretty sick all of last week. Then we had to get rid of Brutus. I miss him so much, I keep doing stuff, thinking that we still have him, and it sucks. Last night was the first night I did not cry when I got into bed and today I haven't cried at all. It's getting better, even though I still miss him.<3
Then, on Saturday, a friend's dad died. It makes me so sad because I've known the whole family since I was very young, and although I hadn't seen him for a long time, it's too bad that such a great person who was always making me smile and laugh will no longer be around. Also, this friend and I used to be super close, definitely one of my best friends for a long time, and while we hadn't talked much in the past months, I just want to be there for him.
I'm planning on going to the funeral on Saturday because luckily it's before I have to work.
Not to mention, another friend I've had since middle school lost her dad about a week ago.

Everything's so sad lately. :(
and stressful. Ugh, I cannot wait to graduate.
This blog is so terribly worded and put-together. Goodnight.

Ps; I left my purse at school. Luckily, it was in the best class, and the teacher found it and so I'm going to get it tomorrow morning. Thank goodness! It had my whole life in there, except my cell phone luckily. Camera, cash, ipod, drivers license, debit card, reading glasses. I'd be so upset without it, it's been hard for just one night without my ipod especially.
Pps; Tomorrow I must start working out again. This whole bad week and a half have included zero minutes of working out, not good.

Saturday, September 20, 2008

I'm so sorry.

I'm so scared. I'm scared that he thinks that we left him, and mostly afraid that he thinks we don't love him anymore, that we don't want him anymore.
I think I'm okay, the only thing that hurts is thinking about him. I wonder where he is right now, what he is doing, what he is thinking, and I'm just scared.
Damn it. I love you, Brutus. I want you back. :(
Please, please, please understand.

I miss you.

Ugh, so basically, I was freaking out on Friday because my mom had said that we were probably going to have to get rid of Brutus. But I held onto that tiny hope that we might not, and so I was okay. He's always being bad and when he gets something he's not supposed to he gets really aggressive - growling, barking, and just recently starting to bite at people when they try to get it away from him. It has gotten worse over the past few days, and we talked to someone from the Humane Society about it on Wednesday or Thursday, and she told us some stuff, but he was still getting worse. An aggression specialist was supposed to call either Friday night or sometime this weekend and of course, hasn't called. Last night while I was at Bekka's, he got something and they tied his leash to the railing - that's what we do for his time outs - and then when they got it away from him, he still kept barking and starting biting in random directions so my mom couldn't even come back in the house (she was in the garage and the railing was right by the door) and Ryan couldn't come upstairs. I guess I don't understand as well because I didn't see it, but they're both better at letting go than I am, I suppose, so they knew that's what we had to do.
So last night I slept downstairs with him, although he was still in the kennel, I was on the floor less than 10 feet away. And this morning I've just been crying a lot and petting him and giving him food he's not supposed to have and telling him I love him.
They left maybe 15 minutes ago to take him, I didn't go because I doubt I'm strong enough to hold myself together at the Humane Society.
I guess my mom's going to ask if they're going to euthanize him because really, unless someone who specializes in these sort of things really works with him, he's just going to keep doing it and getting worse.

I know it's for the better, but I hate it.
I miss you Brutus.

Friday, September 19, 2008

That's what you get when you let your heart win.

I will be avoiding the house for who knows how long. I don't want to be here now, and last night I really didn't want to. It will just be so empty and remind me of him. Hell, he was annoying and bad quite often, but still, I love him.
I don't even really want to write about this now. I'm not upset, I'm not crying and freaking out like last night, when I thought there might still be a possibility. I always do that! I always hold onto that one tiny strand of hope and it keeps me from being upset even though I know that it'll fall through, I can't bring myself to accept it. And then when I finally have to accept it, it just sucks!
So right now, I'm not accepting it. Although all that hope has been shattered my body and mind have failed to accept it, pushing it out, making me feel very blank, numb, as if I have no feeling at all.

I'll let everyone know what this is all about another day. But don't worry, I'll be okay.

EDIT// 12:02am: I really need to go to sleep, but I don't want to. Ryan and I are sleeping down here with Brutus, our last night with him. I started to cry a little, I'm sure it will only be worse tomorrow. I hope Ryan doesn't keep the tv on all night...

Monday, September 15, 2008

This love is hard but it's real.

Oh, check out my layout! I'm in love with it. (: The blending of the image isn't the best, but give me a break, I haven't done this for years! I used stylesheet coding from a few people to help me along with the coding, but of course, I credited them. If they see this still have a problem with me using their codes then I'll take it down.
Well, I have felt pretty terrible all day today. I woke up with a huge headache and a slightly sore throat. The headache didn't cease all day and the sore throat continued to get worse. I'd very much like to bail on school tomorrow but I know I need to go, not to mention that if I don't my mom won't let me hang out with Stephen! :(
I need to finish reading the government book as the test is tomorrow. Someone in another class said that they got a study day tomorrow, so I'm hoping we will get the same. I need to be more prepared, I have read a lot but I don't think that I comprehend and remember it as well as I need too. Honestly, the tests are so hard that I feel like I should just give up trying, but I really shouldn't do that.
Also, I'm really angry about my photography assignment! After 22 pictures the film would not advance so I figured that maybe there was a possibility that it would be done and tried to rewind it. It was really stubborn and making an odd noise so I stopped, and it let me take pictures again. This time though it didn't stop taking pictures, although I got up to 30 and it's only supposed to have 24. So again I tried to rewind the film and the same odd noise kept happening. I was really upset when I figured something was wrong because if we mess up an assignment we have to buy the film and re-do it. So I opened it up, which of course exposed my film, and saw that when I tried to rewind it that some part of the camera was ripping the little holes at the top of the film. I'm almost positive that I loaded the film right so I have no idea how this happened. I'm going to talk to my teacher about it and hopefully I won't have to buy the film because I honestly don't believe that it was my fault.
I watched the new Gossip Girl episode tonight and I loved it, although I was a bit confused since I missed so many episodes. I started watching it when it first came on but kept forgetting and so I'm a bit lost. Then I went to Bekka's to watch the new One Tree Hill, as is our tradition. It was so sad! We are such dorks for being so into a tv show, but hey, it's good!
Last night and today I have been obsessing over the Taylor Swift song Love Story. It's so adorable. (:
Can you tell that I'm putting off my government studying? Oh dear, I really hope we have a study day tomorrow and put the test off until Thursday.
Speaking of government, I'm thinking about signing up for dual enrollment at UNO. It's offered for my AP (Advanced Placement) government and english lit classes. You get three credit hours for each semester for $225 a semester. For both semesters it would be $450, which seems like a lot, but compared to the price to take it in college, it isn't so bad. Thing is, I don't know about it. I want to attend a four year college but I want to attend cosmetology school first. I'm sure that my credits will still be valid but I'm just afraid that they'll get messed up or something. I really need to talk to my school counselor, eek.

Saturday, September 13, 2008

Can you feel this?

I really should finish reading chapter 4 of my government book, it's just really boring. I did good and read most of it so far, and I've got to read two more chapters, so one a night, because we've got a test on Tuesday. I'm pretty nervous because I did failed the last one. :| I'm thinking about dropping it at semester if I continue like this. I know I could be trying harder though...
Today work was... interesting. I worked from 12:30 to like 7:30. It got pretty busy in the afternoon and early evening was seriously busy, and then by closing time it had slowed down immensely. It was so weird because that's never happened before, at least when I was in main gift. Speaking of work, I used my new makeup - from a tiny haul at the MAC counter yesterday - to try a smokey eye sort of look. I don't know how it is for a smokey eye, but I was pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Products: Wet n Wild SunKissed creme e/s, MAC Carbon e/s, MAC Satin Taupe e/s, MAC Nanogold e/s, Lashblast mascara, Avon U02 eyeliner very black, Studio Fix powder/foundation N4.

Speaking of yesterday! :D I went to dinner with Ryan, Dad, and Chris (my dad's girlfriend) and we got Godfather's, which is my favorite food in the world, so I was pretty excited. I wanted to go to Dillards to look at homecoming dresses - and conveniently enough, the MAC counter is located there - and so I asked Audrey if she wanted to go with me. I was kind of nervous because we hadn't hung out before but it was really fun. The lady at Dillards was really nice and picked out a lot of dresses for me. I was really scared at first because they were not looking cute on the hangers, not AT ALL. She said to just try them on and even if I didn't like them that then we could at least see what size I needed. As I was trying them on though, they didn't look so bad, I liked them! This pink, strapless one was pretty much the one and so I got it. Wonderfully enough it was 70% off and ended up being only $86 plus tax. I'll post pictures of it later when I take some better ones.
Then we stopped at the MAC counter and I promised myself I wouldn't spend too much. I only got 3 things - Carbon e/s, Satin Taupe e/s, and Naughty Nautical nail polish. It was in the CoC display and I'm not sure why? I thought that the CoC nail color was more purple, and this one is more blue, but I thought maybe I was mistaken. How odd! :| Although I really like this color so it's no big deal.
We took pictures in a photo booth because she had never done that before and then I helped her picked out cute stuff at Wet Seal. We stopped at Wendy's because she was hungry and I had a strawberry shake. I accidentally went the wrong way, heading back towards the mall, so we had to turn around.
I was taking her home and we were going down 30th when I realized - Hey, my boyfriend's work is right there! So we snuck up on him. (: And his work friends were super lame about it. This girl thought I gave her a mean look, but really it was to the guy next to her. This guy thought my joking around with him was rude even though he was joking first? Whatever.
So I finally took Audrey home and my mom complained about how it shouldn't have taken so long and she was soo tired and wanted to go to bed at 8, it was almost 11 when I got home. She was really rude on the phone, practically hung up on me after she said I might be grounded. But I'm not grounded and it was fun. So all is well and this was a major long blog!
Here is Audrey and I's photo booth picture, goodnight.
