Stop getting so upset over the dumbest things.



This morning started at about 7 AM for me, so I'm currently sitting in my bed, drinking tea, and enjoying the calm before the storm that is running a million errands before I have to be at work this morning by 10.

Oh yeah, I got a job. Well, it's an internship. I work for this new fashion designer in a shitty part of town, but if I play my cards right, I'll be going to New York with him at the end of the month to discuss selling his line with the people at Saks Fifth Ave. I'm working on it. Last night was tiring, as I found myself looking through about 300 Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, and Elle Magazines creating a theme for his non-cohesive, "romantic" F/W 08 line. Oh yeah, it's tough.

Thankfully though, Chelsea helped me SO MUCH and I love her for it. She's coming to visit on Friday. It sucks not having her in the city anymore, as I've become increasingly lonely over break. However, she's going to move in with me for a little bit, so my apartment will go from vacant to stuffed with two girls' worth of clothing and smoke.

The apartment is coming along nicely, I'll post pictures when it's done. Living alone has made me so obsessed with my living space. There's just this need to keep adding things and all that. BUT, my fucking window is messed up on the side and cold air always comes through and it needs to get fixed before I fix it myself and damage the window with unnecessary caulk or something. It's coming along.

Christmas was really nice, as my parents seemed to get me all the little things I wanted, like money, a coffeemaker, candles, and computer things. My brothers and I have become very close, and Billy is almost my best friend. Over the course of the year, I have become extremely protective of him. He told me about how some girl he likes said her parents wouldn't let her date him because he's half black? I was irate. Never in my life have I wanted to go over to someone's house I DON'T know and tell them that maybe I don't want my brother to be a part of their piece of shit, racist family. I know I'm a lot of talk, but honestly, I would have. Billy wouldn't really tell me where she lived, so.

I'm constantly missing Sean whenever he's not here. It always seems as though my back hurts the second he leaves, so I can't force another back massage out of him. I feel as though I don't appreciate him as much as I should. He really does a lot for me, like drive me back and forth if I really need him to since I no longer have a car up here. The only thing that sucks is that we get together and all we do is either fight or lounge around, then we part ways and all we do is talk about how much we miss each other. It's kind of a waste of alone time. We love each other, though.

But today is a new day, and all the things I've been meaning to do over break that are really important are going to get done. Today I will buy my Septa pass, get my PA license, deposit Christmas money and attempt to pay off a little of my looming credit card bill, pay my electricity bill, and mail my loan forms. Oh man. And hopefully I'll be getting a paying job, soon.

Being alone is the city for break has been lonely. I feel so distant from everyone I used to talk to, and am now just reduced to Sean and Chelsea. It's not like I haven't made an effort to keep up with those closest to me, but sometimes those things just don't work out, you know?


Did you all have nice winter breaks or holidays? What are your New Year's resolutions?
