8 months!

Happy 8 months to the bf and I!

His roommate is moving out today (after a huge drama that ensued due to his moving out...more on that later!)

We actually couldn't go to Pensacola this weekend :(. Sadly, his car wasn't done by Friday like the guy at the dealership had let him know. So... it is postponed indefinitely. BUT today is our kickoff game! AU vs LA Monroe! We'll soooo kick their asses... but anyway... I'm not going to the game. Probably head out for the tailgate in a little bit to eat some ribs and good BBQ but I think the bf and I are supposed to go out tonight.

So, his roommate, Andy, decided to put in his 2 weeks notice, quit his job, and return to Pensacola and move back in with his parents to supposedly save money and build his life back up there, since he didn't like it here in Auburn. Sad. BUT, as much as I'm oh so ever slightly bummed that he's moving, there was a huge deal surrounding it because he failed to put in his 30 days notice to the landlord. So Chris is having to stick around for another month, and paying the full rent (Andy refuses to pay his half of the rent, even though the apt is under his name, saying he won't be living there anyway so he won't pay.) Apparently, Andy still hasn't talked to the landlord, but Chris has. The landlord told Chris that he can move out at the end of September since he let her know, but he will be the one receiving the security deposit that Andy had put in since Andy hasn't put in his 30 days notice, and won't be there when the landlord will be doing a walkthrough before the move out. This also gives Chris another month to find a new roommate and move out to a much nicer place than the place he was planning on (a place he found in a crunch that he wasn't particularly happy with).

Kinda sucks that they're having to leave their friendships aside to deal with this money/moving out mess....

Oh yeah, soo... I had a rather rude/scary awakening this morning. The roommates, Kelsey and Angel, aren't home. And probably won't be for the entire weekend. Kelsey went back home till Monday, and Angel has been partying her ass off and probably throwing up somewhere in town, away from here (thank goodness). I came home pretty late last night and fell asleep around 3 after baking blueberry muffins, brownies, and chocolate chip cookies (lol, random baking episode) and woke up this morning when I heard noises, rather voices, downstairs. It FREAKED ME OUT. I heard two or three guys talking downstairs and I was scared shitless! I was like ... WTF who are these people in my house!!!!! I texted Kelsey and asked if anyone was supposed to be here, I was thinking maybe maintenance people or something... and she didn't respond. So I locked my door and huddled in my bed and heard them come upstairs. One guy sounded like he was showing the house to the other guy, and thankfully, he didn't try to open my door!

Turns out, it was Kelsey's brother, and he was down here for the game tonight and wanted to show his friend the house. Kelsey forgot to tell me, and she WAS going to tell me this morning, but her brother had left really early and she was still sleeping. PHEW. I did think that I may need a escape rope or a pole down my window so in case someone does break into the house, I could jump out the window. lol

I guess it's none of my business, but it seems that Kelsey has broken up with her bf :( Sad to see people break up.

On a brighter side, my shipment from f21 arrived yesterday! I bought some sweaters and some sweater dress and an animal print dress, along with a zebra print bra hahaha. It was cheap and cute! I was happy that I could get the free shipping with it. I actually want to order some more stuff... except I know I probably should refrain myself from spending money in the next few weeks.

It's already 2pm, and I haven't taken a shower. Speaking of shower, THE CAT IS GONE! WOOO. I got rid of her yesterday! The past few days, when I left for class or left the house for any reason, I left her and her basket and food in the bathroom. She's been crawling out of the basket to roam around, and I didn't want her to poo everywhere in my room. Seems like she grew a bit in the past few days she's been here, and also learned that pooing in the tiles is much better than pooing in her own blanket. I was kind of growing fond of her, until she left a huge pooey mess in my bathroom yesterday, and I think overnight, the AC vent that was near the pooey mess dried it out, and it was basically glued to the floor! DISGUSTING! I tried wetting the paper towels to wipe it... fail. I tried pouring clorox on it and letting it soak before wiping it... fail. You know what DID work though? I poured pure acetone on it for a bit, then wiped it.. and voila! Gone! Strong enough to remove acrylic and nail polish... I guess strong enough to remove dried up pooey mess. So yeah, Angel took it to her friend's place, and she's gone now. I can now sleep in peace without hearing the cat cry, without Duke barking and scratching up my door because he wants to play/eat/lick the cat... and best of all, I now have a clean bathroom without dried up poo everywhere.

Labor day weekend!

Ah, it's only Tuesday night (I guess technically Wednesday) and I'm already looking forward to the weekend (although I only have a day of classes on Thursday).

I'm glad to see that people are reading and commenting on my blog! Makes me excited to see that someone out there is reading whatever crap I write up. Maybe I should edit it and make it neater and nicer for YOU guys out there reading... ehehehe.... or not.

So.. as you guys can see, my bf brought this little... darling to me last night.

And here goes the full story...
The bf and I have been having problems. He wanted his space, I gave him space, and with time, I grew distant (albeit it was only about a week and a half hahaha). Not like I completely cut off from him either. Anywho, I told him about it and of course he said I was making a big deal out of it. Blah blah! So I think it was Sunday night when I told him that he was pushing me away, whether he intended to or not. I was actually kind of upset that he wasn't checking up on me to see if I was feeling better (he KIND of has, but only when I brought it up, so it doesn't count!). Anywho, he suggests that we hang out the night after. I told him I wasn't pressuring him to do anything, and if he felt pressured, he shouldn't do it. ONLYYYYYYYYYY and IF ONLYYYYYYYYY he wanted to see me, then I would. He said he did, and that was that.

The next day rolls around, and all day, I let him be. Usually, I'd be the one checking up on it, msging/texting him during the day while he's at work to see what we are planning to do that night. BUT, I frankly I wanted to see how much effort he was willing to put in. All day I kept myself busy, hung out with friends, and 7pm rolls around, when he gets off work. At 7:01, like clockwork, he gives me a call and asks me what I'm doing then sounded disappointed to see that I was out hanging out with friends, since I'm usually at home waiting for him by the time he gets off work. But nope, I've wasted so much time waiting on him to get off work, cuz he often gets tied up talking to a coworker or his boss afterwards and all I do is WAIT. *NOTE* this girl, DONNA, is SUPER IMPATIENT.

He tells me that he was gonna talk to his boss for a min and he'd call me back. 2hrs and 15 minutes later, he calls. Within that time, I sent him 2 texts and called him once to see wtf was going on. I was really annoyed at this point, because he was the one that wanted to hang out with me then decides to disappear. I was about to flip shit! He finally calls me around 9:15 and says "OMG donna, you'll never guess what happened!" In a super monotone and not-at-all excited voice, I ask, "what." Then he tells me the story of how he was talking with his boss and went outside since his boss needed a cig break and he heard strange noises. Come to find out, he finds this little 3 week old kitty in the bushes at work. So he was running around trying to find food and a little basket and blankets and bottles and whatnot for it................. and completely forgot that he was supposed to call me. I understand guys are ADD and all but he completely loses track sometimes and it's really irritating, especially in situations like this.

He sounded super excited (he loves cats) and was telling me he'd be over at my place in 5 minutes. Then he finally caught the drift and asked me why I sounded mad. I told him exactly why. Now... usually, he'd be like "ok..whatever I'll see you later then" or something and avoid the situation any further. Instead, he asked me if it was alright if he could bring the cat over (even though we have a 6 month old lab/boxer mix who'd love to eat it).
This is Duke, and Turbo aka, POOPY.

I reluctantly agreed and he popped in with a kitty in a basket. LOL!

After seeing the kitty fall asleep, he asked me if I had dinner yet, and that he was super hungry, so we went out to grab something to eat. Although I hadn't eaten, I frankly didn't have much appetite from being sick, and swallowing any drink/food was a pain cuz of the sore throat. He was in a strangely good bf mood, because as soon as we got out of my house, he hugged me and said he missed me. Then he held my hand in the car, proceeded to tell me that I looked beautiful that night, even though I was sick and wasn't dolled up (then added, "oh crap, that probably came out wrong, but i do mean you look beautiful!"), held my hand while we were seated at the table, and gave me kisses across the table even though I was coughing up a nasty storm. hahaha. Honestly, if I were him, I dunno if I'd want to kiss my sick gf who was coughing up mucus LOL.

So we get back, and we had a nice substantial talk for the first time in a while. No more avoiding topics, no more "dropping" topics, no more excuses. He owned up to the fact that he was at fault for not putting as much effort into rebuilding the relationship, apologized for it, and admitted that he wasn't putting as much effort into it as I was and that he appreciated me for it. The talk was actually pretty quick and painless. I looked like I was crying cuz I was lying on my side, but my eyes and nose had been runny all day! Anyway, he tells me that he was heading home this weekend down to Pensacola, and asked me to come along. He asked me to come down with him 2 months ago, but I was down in Destin on a family vacation with my parents, so it was a no go. He actually hasn't been home since then because of Waterfest in July and just busy with work this month. I'm not sure how I feel about it, since it is a 3 day weekend, and I don't know how well it would work out spending 3 days with him and his family. I would be meeting his parents + sister for the first time, along with his bestfriend Mike, and it would be a great opportunity to put in a last beach trip before fall rolls in. Our 8 months is actually coming up this Saturday, so maybe we'll have a nice bonding time this weekend and it won't be so bad since his parents seem really cool from what I've been hearing.

The 6'2 ~200lb bf... and the 6" ~2lb kitty

Aside from all that, I feel better with the whole being sick thing... BUT I am once again in bad terms with my ex bf again. hahaha. I've been venting to him about my relationship issues and he's been pretty subjective about it, putting in his own experiences he had in his previous relationship (he's still crazy about this girl). He was actually telling me to move on and look for other people instead of waiting for Chris. Bastard! Why would I do that? That's being shady and I'd be seeing people behind his back! Long story short, I for some reason mentioned it to Chris, then mentioned to Jason (the ex) that I told Chris, and Jason flips out and tells me I'm stupid for misinterpreting him and that he'll never give me advice again (not like I took it anyway). He then continues his rant about how he thinks all girls are stupid, and says "sorry, but you just added to it." Except, I told him that I was sorry that he felt that way, and to let me know when he gets over his "stupid" exgf, and meets his next stupid gf. I'd gladly congratulate him on being stupid enough to date someone stupid. Maybe he should be gay then?

OH YEAH! I forgot to add, but I sat around since I had a lot of time today, and played with some shadows! Used gold and some rusty looking color and some shimmery browns... paired with some heavy mascara and not so heavy black eyeliner. It looks awesome! Woo. Then I decided to see if I could make it a little more interesting and added a turquoise glitter liner to it on top of the black eyeliner. Actually didn't look too bad. Sadly, I was playing around with colors and botched the other eye. Hahaha, maybe I'll get a chance to do the look this weekend! My blog has been lacking some beauty related

Cat. wtf.

I'm allergic to cats.
Last night, the bf decides to drop off a 3 week old kitty he found at his work. Now it's here pooping it up. Sigh.

I have bronchitis. :(

Apparently I don't. I went back to the doctor (monday) and he tells me my lungs sound fine. I'm finally getting over this nasty sickness, not sure what it is, but glad that it's going away!

New Semester, quick (pretty long) update

Sorry I haven't been able to update in a while. I actually didn't really want to considering my life has been in a strange spiral due to the BF bringing up some stuff that I didn't really want to hear. More about that later, I suppose.

School started this week! I'm taking it easy with only 14hrs, and crammed it into Tues/Thurs. Meaning, no class M/W/F! I made it so I'd be done before 7pm, even with the late labs, so that I'd be done on or before my bf gets off work, so I could have a flexible schedule all week to work around his. I sound completely wrapped up with him, but I just tend to put a lot of effort into working things out... anyway

I'm sick! I hate being sick. I don't know why I'm sick. I started coughing 2 nights ago, and I figured I'd catch it early (I always ignore it and end up getting super sick) so I told my mom then proceeded to pick up some OTC cough medicine. Took it, seemed to somewhat help, well... it had a cooling feeling that sort of soothed my sore throat. But what the hell! Today (yesterday I guess technically) I stayed in bed all damn day, feeling pretty crappy. I even took an hour long bath and sat around my room naked (it felt gooood) but it didn't really help. I think this is the first time I've gotten sick since the flu I had back in January or something... I think I tend to get sick right when school starts :( sucks major balls!

I'm sitting here, contemplating on whether I want to drive home or not. I mean.. it is 2am and I have my class at 8, back to back till 145. Luckily, no lab. But if I do go home, I do need to go to a clinic and get things checked out for my sake, and for the sake of getting an excuse for school! Haha, I feel like a little middle schooler needing an excuse.

Anyway, the bf and I have been on the edge since last week. He randomly brought up one day that he needed to talk to me (as soon as he said we need to talk about some stuff... it freaked me out). I couldn't wait until he got off work, so he ended up telling me online, briefly what it was about, then called me later when it freaked me out. He basically said that he didn't think he had enough time for me, and that he thought I deserved someone who'd give me the time and attention that I deserve. What a load of BS! Or so I thought. I was just freaking out that this guy was about to dump me and I was just there, like a sitting duck. He tells me that he needs some space to think about it, but it was up to me on what I wanted to do. He suggested that we could take a break to see how that works out, and get back together when things are less hectic for him. He also suggested just calling it off... and the last option, staying together and sticking it out. The past few weeks before that had been a little rocky, so he was already feeling a bit distant, so he felt as if we needed to take a break or call it off, cuz he personally didn't feel that we could pan it out much longer at this rate. There are circumstances that were surrounding things, but at this time, I was just loopy and thought of "giving him space" and tried to occupy my time. Which is the reason why I sat around and thought about flying out to cali, chicago, florida, or jersey the next day. I took a bit more time and thought about it, and thought I sounded a bit crazy for dropping everything and flying out halfway across the country to get away from issue with the bf. What kinda lunatic does that? Anyway, so the next day, instead of moping around, I opted to drive to Atlanta to hang out with some friends.

An awesome idea! We had one of my favorite chicken/pizza place...

had some bulgogi pizza and spicy chicken thing.

Then we went shopping... followed by a dessert at my favoriteeeeeeeeeee dessert place. Suno!

We chowed down that volcano suno like it was nothing. Well, at least I did. I have some pictures, but I don't feel like bending down to grab my camera, so it'll have to wait.

So all the bf mess started on Wednesday... and I went to Atlanta Thursday. Don't remember what I did that Friday, but I did see my bf on Saturday, albeit it was only for about 2 hrs. We put off talking about stuff until the next day cuz he had somewhere to go and I felt like I was hanging. I went home Sunday morning to get my tutoring done, then drove back that night and saw him again, and we briefly talked about it. The whole time I was freaking out, for some reason, I kept thinking he was trying to dump me. When we talked about it, he said the decision was always up to me, and because he brought it up, I was gonna be freaked out for months. Haha, maybe, but who knows. He said that he just needed some time to think things through and clear his mind. I didn't necessarily give him his space cuz I talked to him all week, even though I tried not to. lol. So... the reason why he brought this up, was because at work, they're thinking about starting a service department, and making him the manager for it. So they're drawing up stuff, and he's having to do a lot more work cuz of it. On top of that, his roommate is moving back home, and just put in his 2 weeks notice. So not only does Chris (the bf) and his department have to carry the extra load until they find someone else, but he also needs to go apartment shopping before the lease is up, which is I believe either this month or next month. That brings me to his car! His car has been at the dealership since last Monday. He doesn't think it will be done until next Wednesday! That's 2 1/2 weeks without his car! So he's having to do his apartment shopping, somehow, without his car.

While having to reorganize his life and think things through, he should be able to rely on his trusty gf. But nopeeee. Past few weeks, I've been pretty paranoid about stupid shit and nagging at him, so he felt like he needed a break from everything. Or at least me. Since it's the only thing he can control. Sigh, I've been giving him his space, and letting him be, hoping he'll come back to me when the time is right. He's been doing little things here and there and has been pissing me off, but I haven't brought it up since his life is probably a little more stressful than mine, and could probably hold off on any more problems. He did come to see me today, super hungry... lol. So I got him some dinner... watched him eat while I was feeling sick as a dog, and we just hung out for about an hour before he realized that he needed to leave because I had to sleep, since I now had to get up earlier than he, because of classes. Which brings me back to........

I CAN'T SLEEP CUZ I CAN'T STOP COUGHING. That and I feel nauseated every time I lied back down, and I'd end up running to the bathroom throwing up. I don't get it. Whatever, maybe I'll shed some pounds. I should probably cut this longass entry now and try to sleep.

As for you guys, take care of yourselves! It might be this changing weather, but I've been seeing a lot of people get sick!

New Hair Color

Dyed my hair black, with white streaks.. kinda have the cruella deville/skunk vibe going on and not sure if I like it. Oh well.

The white streaks is only a clip in anyway :D

Strawberry lemonade

So I was making this earlier, and thought maybe I should share, due to some requests.
Figured I'd share a secret of mine too with the fellow bloggers out there!

Things you will need:
Sugar, Nesquik strawberry syrup, Lemon juice, Strawberries, Sprite... and a blender.

Take some fresh strawberries (I swear these are fresh... the colors got washed out, lol)

Wash and cut!

Eyeball some water into your blender container thing (I went up 1 increment on the thing)

Add some lemon juice. About half of the water you added.

Then add about 1 1/2 - 2tablespoons of sugar (depending on how sweet you want it)

Then add about 1 1/2 - 2tablespoons of strawberry syrup (depending on how sweet you want it)

Seal tightly...

Blend! The sugar should create a foam.

Add some ice into the cup

Pour the contents of the blended mix into the iced cup

Eyeball the sprite and mix as needed

Add the strawberries, and voila!

I probably created more steps than it actually is (like who needs to know the process of adding ice into cup) but it really is very simple!

I need to pack up and head home tonight, since my new place is too big for me to spend more than one night alone without feeling lonely. Hope you guys have an amazing weekend!

Moving & Finals

Yay! So I finally moved into my new place on the 2nd but STILL don't have furniture in my room yet. Talk about being lazy *rolls eyes*

I packed most of my stuff into boxes the night before, but dumb me, forgot to tape up the boxes and they were all open, hahaha. So the next day, the BF texts me and asks me to come over and make him breakfast (what balls to have to ask me that at 9am!) but not only that, but to pick up bacon and eggs on the way. I bitched at him till he finally got out of bed and went and picked it up himself (after arguing about how he got home at 3 cuz he had to go out of town, and my rebuttal being that I was up going back and forth moving stuff till 230 so I was just as tired...).

He was in the shower when I walked in, so I helped myself to cooking a nice little breakfast :) I don't know whether it's his stovetop or his pan, but it was lopsided and my eggs came out funny looking... and he tells me I fail at making eggs. PFT at least they were good! Soo.. we had eggs, bacon, toast & some good ol' OJ and he arranged my food in the shape of a smiley haha. We watched 10,000 B.C. while eating breakfast, then finished watching the Invisible (even though we both have already seen it) before heading over to my place.

He wanted to leave my car there (I drive a 240sx... so it's not like I could've loaded up much stuff anyway) but he drives a GTI! Not like his car loads up much more! Good thing I didn't have any furniture to move. :) We finished the move in 2 trips and he seemed excited about it. It's a 3bd 3 1/2 bath condo with a HUGEASS kitchen (I LOVE IT) and I think it's a little over 1900sq ft in total. When I lived at my old apt, he came over like... less than 10 times to pick me up, and probably less than 5 times to just hang out. I've been here a week and he's already come over to hang out at least 4 times from what I can count, haha. It could partly be that he's not really getting along with his current roommate and wants to stay away but, oh well!

So yea, finals rolled around (5th-7th) but I had 2 on 6th and 1 on 7th. I don't know what it is with guys and creating drama or things for me to worry about during the finals. It's like they know that my stress level has me easily agitated, twice than normal, so they bug me just so they can see me flip out for no reason. Oh yeah, soo...I get easily distracted while I study (although I did get a lot of studying done in the dining table, haha.)

Just look!
Monday night:

Tuesday night:

Wednesday night:

I guess I gradually looked less scrubby even though it usually worsens.

So Monday night, the bf wants to hang out, says he wants to see if I can come out to company dinner with him, turns out it'll only be a few of the guys, so he says he'd be done in an hour-hour 1/2 and will be over. 3 hrs later.......... he calls and says he's at a bar, and got dragged out by his boss. Says this and that, asks me why I couldn't hang out the next day (I had told him I'd be tied up Mon-Wed night for finals). I reminded him, and he tells me to study during the day -_- Well, I eventually end up making time for him, and Tuesday night rolls along. He wanted to go out to dinner with me and hang out, and when I called him, he said he was on his way to BWW... wtf?? He tells me that he and his coworkers were going out, he asked if I could come, and they said no. Umm ok. He asks me if I'm mad (...) then asks me to trust him. Says he promises he'll be done in an hour to and hour and a half and will be over. Hour and a half later, I text him saying he should just hang out with his coworkers since I need to study anyway (I was pissed OFF and didn't even wanna see him). He texts back.. "I don't think I can make it..." Wow I blew up on him. He asked me if I was home, and I was like.. where else would I be. I was home studying ALL day for your ass. He asks again, and I said I was leaving. As I grabbed my stuff to head out to a coffee shop, I see him standing in front of the door, leaning against his car, saying "surprise!"



Wednesday, he rolls in around 8, we head out for dinner, dessert, then just chilled... he killed a spider for me. I think that pretty much summed up that night.

Yesterday, my friend from my hometown came up to see me, we hung out, ate dinner, baked BROWNIES!!! Oh man, I was on a sugar rush from the strawberry lemonade I had at O'Charley's on top of the brownies... the BF came by to hang out a little bit (we had gotten in a fight about something stupid earlier in the day). Eventually, they both left, and I had a huge batch of brownies that I really wanted to eat... except I was too full to.

So today, my brother was supposed to come up and hang out, except I'm planning on telling him to stay home, and that I'll come down tomorrow. The bf is flying out to Iowa tomorrow for APR Motorsports Race with the owner of the company. He's been getting on the good side of him, and got invited out to fly out on a private jet with Stephen (the owner) and hang out with him. I'm happy for him that work is going well in his favor :) Anyway, so I plan on chilling with him tonight for a bit, then heading down to do my tutoring so I can get some $$$ and replenish my wallet.

One day... I will get around to doing exciting EOTD/LOTD and tutorials... but for now, my daily ramblings will have to do. Till later, ciao!
