Lol. I was looking at some of my old photo albums and I realized that I used to have a lot more spunk. Someone who is a part of an older generation told me that after dealing with life, it’s hard to get excited about it anymore. I think I’m already there and I’m too young to feel this way. I’ve lost some of my spunk. I find it hard to get excited about things because if...

So, I haven’t had a girls night out in the longest time. I have Brian and he’s wonderful, but I feel like I “need” some good friends. I hardly ever notice it. I usually go through my days not considering whether or not I need friends. My hubby has told me that I do need them because I’m a woman…eh :-p I feel like a nomad right now. We’ve been on the...
So, another life changing experience occurred today. I don’t know where we go from here but it should be interesting.

So, I’m still finalizing some things for the wedding my husband and I didn’t have earlier this year. It’s awkward for me because human interaction freaks me out. It seriously freaks me out! I prefer the written or typed word rather than the verbal. I hate talking on the phone…I HATE it! I think it goes back to my awkwardness around people, especially new people. I...

Okay, lately I feel pretty disconnected from people. Maybe it’s just my current location? But folks seem farther away. Eeehhhh :-p
Hubby and I enjoyed our day at the beach. I think we both got a pretty good tan (I forgot the sunblock so I hope we don’t get skin cancer). It’s not as far as we thought it would be. People are crazy drivers. Parking costs more than I’d like. The water was freezing, but we saw and otter!! I captured the moment like a professional paparazzi ^_^ Yup, yup :) The little guy...
I have recently realized (not just recently but whatev) I enjoy shopping. Especially online, for things relating to natural hair. Not so much interested in clothes, but jewelry and hair accessories. I’m FIGHTING this urge so strongly. I don’t wanna act like I’m rich when I ain’t. *Sigh*
We Laughed We Cried *WARNING: I TALK A LOT*
There are a lot of situations that have made me who I am today. Old relationships definitely played a part in that. I don’t think I’ve talked about my story, but let’s get to it. 1st BF - This guy came at a time when I had just entered high school and I felt like I was ugly. I thought no one was interested in me. I believe that God used that relationship to help me...
Relationships *WARNING: THIS WILL BE LONG*
So, I get on these rants in my head and only occasionally does it come to my mind to put these thoughts into words. I was thinking about relationships. Mainly relationships in the type of church that I grew up around (not in). There is this confusing sort of air that goes around. The church itself is fairly misguided, but in terms of relationships, that’s where people get really screwed...

Weight Loss and Hair Retention Update
So, I’ve lost 5 lbs. I’m not doing anything hardcore, but I’ve changed my eating habits and I exercise for at least 30 minutes a day. The goal is to lose two lbs a week and hopefully be at my target weight BEFORE New Years. We shall see. It gets hard to keep up the motivation. There are times when I don’t want to exercise, but by the grace of God I keep going. I went...

There really are those days when I jus wanna say “Fuuuuu….” to some people. Crazy drivers. Inconsiderate people. ”F[r]iends.” ”Family.” Racists. Ignorant/stupid people. I just pray instead and try to pretend they don’t bother me! Sigh.
Finally at the aquarium!
So, my hubby and I finally got a chance to hit up Sprouts health food store. I wanted to go there mainly to get some natural oils for my hair. So expensive! For a small little tablespoon of essential oil it was about $15. The food was also a rad pricey, but not as bad as the oils. I like the store tho and I think I’ll be shopping there for our food from now on.

Reblog if you're bored and you want anons.
It’s true that people really need to be careful what they say and how they treat others. I remember when I entered middle school I was soo depressed I could hardly stand it. It’s only by the grace of God that I didn’t jump off a bridge or in front of a bus. Middle school and high school are very critical times, but most young “adults” really don’t have the...
