Post 94: photo post

it's been awhile since i've posted pictures of EJ on here. she's changed so much!

here's a little update on the most adorable little girl on the planet.

  1. instead of crawling she rolls all over the floor. it's really funny actually.
  2. she loves Gerbers Puffs. her favourite's are Strawberry Apple, Sweet Potato and Banana.
  3. she has one tooth, on the bottom.
  4. she can walk if you hold her arms.
  5. she has the cutest laugh ever! her whole body laughs.
  6. she can saw "Mama" and "Dada" and every now and then "Oh". it's really cute.
  7. she has a lot more hair now, it's hard to see in pictures but it's there!
  8. she waves, sometimes.

here are some new pics (in order: sitting in her high chair at breakfast, Christmas Morning playing with the drum she got, On the beach in FL at Christmas, in the rental car in FL, in her stroller shopping in Miami, in the pool at the hotel in Napels, sitting on the couch at Oma and Opa's ready to go out for dinner):

Post 93: the one with the fight about the dishes

my roommate just informed me that i have never done her dishes before.

i could've lept off the couch and strangled her skinny neck.

since we've moved in together i've washed her dishes (and her boyfriends dishes when he stays over) at least five times and cleaned up after her (she leaves trash and such in the living room) many times.

i'm the type of person who washes my dishes daily, or right after i use them if i have time. that way the dishes don't pile up and get really gross (i also rinse out my dishes too).

she on the other hand will wait until there is no room in our double sink (yes, double sink) to put another dish, or until we run out of dishes altogether.

it drives me mad.

then she complains about how many dishes she has to do!

are you bloody kidding me?

ugh. the roommate and i get along 90% of the time, really. but sometimes, sometimes i just wanna strangle her! ugh!

okay, i'm done venting now.

the roommate and i are about to eat veggie pasta and watch My Best Friends Girl and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. tomorrow is our day off, we get to stay up late tonight!

Post 92: Weekly Challenges

i've decided to challenge myself every week with something. either by doing something for a week, or by not doing something for a week.

i will start today.

week #1 challenge: be a vegetarian.

wish me luck.

Post 90: seventeen again

a few months ago i took a little trip to Walmart. i had to buy a few things and saw that Saving Private Ryan was only $5. so i decided to purchase it.

here is the story:

i finish shopping and go through the checkout. the woman scans my dvd and asks me for my ID.

i look at her surprised.

"it's because of your R rated DVD" she said, sensing my curiosity.

"oh?" i said in response, shaking my head and smiling as i got out my license.

"let me guess" she said, "you're older than 17?"

"um, yes, i'm 24." i said as i showed her my license, which is horizontal (in ohio that means i am over the age of 21).

"oh wow!" she said, genuinly surprised. "i didn't realize..."

"it's okay, it happens a lot." i say as i put away my license and grab my bags.

"when you're thirty and look twenty you'll appreciate it" she reassures me.

"thanks." i say as i walk away.

now, i get carded all the time for alcohol and when i smoked i got carded for cigarettes. but never, ever have i been carded for an R rated movie. i didn't even know they did that.


so apparently i look like i'm 17. awesome.

i guess when i'm in my thirties and look twenty i'll appreciate it?

cheers to having a baby face.

Post 87: It's been too long.

So it's been about 3 months since I've posted. So here's a quick update on my life:
  1. Got a job.
  2. Moved into an apartment.
  3. Bought a new laptop.
  4. Read Twilight.
  5. Fell in love with Edward Cullen.
  6. Accepted Facebook friend request of ex-boyfriend.
  7. Was told by said ex-boyfriend (excuse my French) "I really want to f*** you right now."
  8. Was told by same said ex-boyfriend that he wanted to get back together with me and that he was still in love with me.
That is why i don't stay friends with ex's.

What the hell was i thinking when i accepted his friend request?

Stupid Facebook.

Bloody fantastic.

Post 86: Song Lyric Sunday

What I've Done by Linkin Park

In this farewell
There's no blood
There's no alibi
Cause I've drawn regret
From the truth
Of a thousand lies

So let mercy come
And wash away

What I've done
I'll face myself
To cross out what I've become
Erase myself
And let go of what I've done

Put to rest
What you thought of me
While I clean this slate
With the hands
Of uncertainty

So let mercy come
And wash away

What I've done
I'll face myself
To cross out what I've become
Erase myself
And let go of what I've done

For what I've done
I start again
And whatever pain may come
Today this ends
I'm forgiving what I've done

I'll face myself
To cross out what I've become
Erase myself
And let go of what I've done

What I've done
Forgiving what I've done
