I’m thinking about getting another part time job…I’m getting bored. I feel like I go through this every year. I have had a part time job for part of the year every year since I have graduated. I like to keep busy. Lately I feel like I have spent way too much time being lazy at home…or shopping and spending too much money. I also think that when I have less time, I’m more motivated to get stuff done.
Not too sure where I would like to work though. Maybe a coffee shop…Ethel’s would be fun…but they have chocolate there and I would eat way too much of it. Starby’s? Or I could go for another craft store…I don’t want to have to clean bathrooms though…maybe the home depot…change of pace from my norm. Or Bed Bath & Beyond…Maybe even a bar…I’ll think of a place.
Yesterday, I went to this craft store that is going out of business. It made me sad, because I think a lot of small owned businesses will/are struggling because of our economy. I love shopping in non chain/small stores…though they tend to be more expensive. It still would be very depressing if all of those businesses went under. People without jobs- no good.
On a positive note though, I was able to buy scrapbook products at 70% off. Score!!! I was very excited!!! I purchased fun paper that I plan to make my Christmas cards out of. I’m such a nerd…

Thoughts while waiting for 4:30 to roll around...

This weekend I went to Statesville Haunted Prison…it’s the first haunted house that I have been to in years. I think since high school. It wasn’t too shocking that the place was loaded with teeny boppers. It was still fun though! I screamed the whole way through and was holding on to Larry for dear life. Well, for the first one. The second house, I was not too impressed with. It was really short, and not that scary. The decorations (is that the proper word usage?) were really cool though. Still not sure if it was worth the wait…
I’ve decided that I need to redo my kitchen. It has almost been 3 years since I bought my place and have wanted to from the get go. Since the current state of my kitchen makes me depressed on a daily bases, I’ve decided that it needs to be done. IKEA here I come! It is only a one bedroom and I don’t think that I will make all that much on it. Plus our economy is in the shits currently…so, cheap, but appealing to the eye is what I am aiming for.
Speaking of our current economic crisis- On Sunday at the weekly Bartolotta Feast…my family talked about the wonders of politics…hahahaha. It saddened me to discover that one of my own believed evil words that someone who watches FOX NEWS told them….ahhh. Luckily, crisis was avoided, and common sense has been restored!

Happy Columbus Day

I went and saw the Chicago marathon yesterday- it was very inspiring. Over 33 thousand people ran in it- that is a lot of determination. As I watched the people run by, I kept thinking about how I could use more determination in my life. I was in awe.
I am taking steps to better myself. Becoming a complacent person has been a fear of mine. It happens, people get comfortable and get into a routine…08 has been an awakening year for me; and I want to make sure that I keep on participating in life on the daily. Giving myself new goals and challenges…to keep me on my toes.
I recently celebrated my 26th birthday…I can’t believe how fast time passes. When I was younger, I thought that I would be so old at 26. Being there now, I still feel like a kid. No need to grow up too fast right? It helps when you’re still best friends with the girls that you grew up with…I think that they keep me younger…keep the memories alive. I love it.
I read this book, Unhooked by Laura Sessions Stepp. It’s about the “hook up culture” and how it affects females. I recommend it; it is changing the way that I look at sex and love. I will be placing more emphasis on the love and not so much on the later. I look back at some of the “interesting” things that I have done and just wonder wtf was I thinking. Not that I regret anything that I have done…bc you live and you learn. I guess its part of growing up, but I just don’t want to give myself away to anyone. I want to know the person, respect them, share beliefs with them, love them…and then think about the other stuff.
I’m excited…this year I’m actually dressing up for Halloween…I’m going to be Wonder Woman…How fun!!! And it is a must that I go out on Halloween, since for the past several years I haven’t.
Enough random thoughts for now…
