I'm rather proud of myself lately. I've embraced my natural disheveled state and I feel worlds better for it.

What it do.

I swore up and down I would keep my livejournal after I got a tumblr, but I've done a terrible job.

Writer's Block: You’re giving me a toothache

Once in highschool we were supposed to describe ourselves in one word and I asked one of my English teachers what word he would use and he said "Sincere." I've also been called classy a couple times, and that always means a lot... I do try to nurse quality of character.
What is the nicest thing anyone has ever said to you?

WUT

Pretty sure I officially only have two feelings now:

Enraged and stressed.
Let me tell you what..

H8. Everything.

An anon on tumblr called me selfish earlier today and it made me think a lot. My initial response was to get really defensive, but after I thought about it I decided that wasn't very fair. I've probably done/said a lot of things that people who aren't in my head would perceive as selfish... unfortunately a lot of times I don't get a chance to explain myself because all too often I think people say or think those things about you, but never directly to you.

I'm starting to notice that I've begun to welcome those opportunities to verbalize the way I'm feeling or why I said/did whatever I said/did to make them think think I have x quality, and it's really improved my life a lot.
I want to be the type of person who accepts the perceptions of others gracefully. Not every evaluation of my character is correct but I'm not perfect and I want to better myself in all situations.

I'm drunk. This is not good timing for accidentally getting drunk.

I should really update this, it's been a while.

Um.. I got fired at Mediacom, so I've been lazing about collection unemployment until I can save up enough money for a car.
Funny thing about Chillicothe is that I make more with unemployment than I could make with a part time job here in town, so I figure I may as well just milk it and stash the money until I can buy a car and get something full time in Peoria.
Not gonna lie, it's been pretty nice.

Doug is good? He's playing bass for a metal band right and enjoying it.. he's just subbing so he doesn't have to write or organize, or care how it sounds beyond his part that he's playing.
It's been fun going to shows, I enjoy his other bandmates' girlfriends.

I have dreads now?
I just got home from Florida and I'm really sick.

I don't know what else. I'll get better about writing in this.
I miss it.

Writer's Block: Happily ever after…

What's Harry going to do now that the series is over?



Series has been over for a while. Just sayin.

Funny story:

I saw Garrett and his family at Tequilas last night.
Apparently my mom sells his mom Mary Kay and they live right behind my mom?

Anyways, he came to say hi and of course my mom is like "Oh you know each other? He's such a nice boy.. you know that family is so nice. And he's cute too."
Then looks at me expectantly.
And I'm like "Thanks mom for making my entire life as awkward as possible."

But it was funny, because apparently, his parents did the exact same thing.
So then I didn't feel quite as humiliated.

Dear LJ,

Been a while since I've updated in here. Sorry everybody.

Things are going marginally well. I've been in the process of trying to transfer to a new department at work. Hopefully that pans out, I'd really like the pay increase and I think the work would be more enjoyable.

Doug is well, things are going well.
I'm restless a bit, I want to move out but I know I need to patient and pay off debt. Ick.

The last week or so I've been waking up early in the morning from strangulation nightmares and it's been keeping me from falling back to sleep, so I'm exhausted and hoping that changes soon.

Show coming up on March 26th.. probably won't be all that great, but I had a lot of people request that I play just because my friends and my family are sweet and give me a lot more credit than I deserve.

Car is still out of commission. My life has slowed down a lot, I feel really good about having simplified everything. Best I've been in years.
Love always,
Emily
