So I got a second interview with Sephora. And I think it went really well. And the pay would be excellent. And I pretty sure (fingers crossed) that I got the job! I'm not sure, but I pretty hopeful. That would turn my life around and make me feel so much better.
My sleep schedule is so off. I just woke up from a nap but I only had two hours of sleep last night. So now, I'm tired now, but won't be when its time to go to bed. When the boy works first shift (6-2), its harder to adapt to sleeping right. Oh well, if I get this job, I probably won't do much sleeping at all. Current Mood: excited

|A tale of two cats.
Well, I've been catsitting for a few weeks now and let me tell you, I am ready to strangle one of them. She rips up the furniture, claws the hell out of me and the boy, throws up (this I discovered today when I woke up), and she riles up the other one. It's very frustrating because I would like to just keep one, but oh well.
I still haven't found a job. I really haven't been looking for one though. I thought Sephora was going to work out, but its not looking good right now. I'm not gonna bitch about being jobless cause its my own fault. I am hoping to change that this week though.
As for my grades from MTSU, one of my very shitty profs gave me an F after promising me a W. Pretty shitty huh? I haven't told my mom yet, but its going to resemble WWIII. Fun for me.
I am really not happy with the direction my life is going right now. I'm happy with the boy, but I feel useless and loser like. I know the only person to change that is me. But how to do you change a part of your character (like being lazy and unmotivated) quickly enough to see results? I don't know.
Gotta get the oil changed and keep cleaning the house today. Maybe even do some job searching in between. Current Mood: numb

I have actually been semi-productive today. I did 6 loads of laundry (and there are still 3 more to go) and hung out with Kelly at the same time. I was glad to have some girl time, plus we played Scene it and I won! Now I am folding, cleaning, and organizing our apartment. I really need to clean the living room, but one of my roomates is sleeping. I feel like I never get control of anything in the apartment sometimes. It's very frustrating and is probably leading to my bad moodiness lately...which has been high.
Tomorrow, I have an interview with Sephora so I am very excited about that. I would love to work as a makeup artist there. That would be spectacular. I hope that it all works out. I'm also working on getting all my paperwork filled out to be a tutor. It is 20 bucks an hour, so I figure I wouldn't have to work too much. Then I could balance both jobs and make lots of money. And I like money.
On another subject, I need to start taking better care of myself. I don't sleep long enough, I eat poorly, and I never exercise. Teresa and I are gonna start doing work out videos. Haha, its gonna be a very interesting sight to see. One that no one ever will. I've been cooking at home alot more lately so I think we're eating a little better. But I'm trying to work on the cleanliness of the apartment as well. The kitties (and yes I am cat sitting two now) help add to the messiness so I feel like I'm cleaning alot more often. I also need to get caught up on my bills.
I feel boring lately. I feel kinda housewifish. All I talk about is furniture, cooking, and my to do lists. I want to be 22 again. I want to stay up all night and bullshit, I want to go out all the time, and I want to do spontaneous things with my friends. Sometimes, I feel like I'm 35. Oh well, I guess once I get my job stuff straighted out, I can be more adventerous. Off to continue folding. Current Mood: pensive

Does anyone have a washing machine/dryer I can occupy for a little while today? I will pay for the use. Please? Current Mood: busy
|Sunday, December 25th, 2005|
Well, I never decorated my Chanukkah bush...maybe next year. Christmas was nice this year. I spent it with my wonderful, fantastic boyfriend and Raz and his family. It was really nice. They are all so close and everyone was really excited to go over there. That is not at all like it is at my house. I have to go to my parents tonite for presents and I'm not excited because I'm so scared that I've done something else wrong. They think I still have a job, they don't know that I will be receiving a WF in one of my classes, and they don't know that my boyfriend is going to be moving in with me. I wish I could come clean about it all, but I just feel like such a failure in their eyes that I can't bring myself to dissapoint them again. My new year's resolution is to get my life together. To find a good job, furnish my apartment, keep up mainentance on the car, keep the apartment clean and stocked with food, and keep myself happy. Right now, I'm happy with some of my life but there is much room for improvement. I'm ready to grow up and accept more responsibility in my life.
On a happier note, I am super excited about the boy moving in. We might as well live together now, but this gives us an additional closeness. Its been almost 6 months since we've been together. Crazy. I am also excited about the pj party tonite at NV. I don't think I want to use this opportunity to be skanky, I think I will be rockin' the Hello Kitty pjs. Plus, Bronti and Pinkie (two of my very cute stuffed animals) will be making an appearance. They are very excited as well. ;)
Tomorrow, I am going to see my dad in Atlanta. I am REALLY excited to see my siblings, but I feel kinda bad because I wasn't able to get them very much. I know they'll understand, but I wish I could shower them with presents, something I've never been able to do. I don't know if my dad will get me anything because he's mad that I can only stay until weds. Oh well, whatever. I have a job interview on thurs so I have to be back.
I've got a busy week ahead between Atlanta and cleaning/organizing the apartment for the boy to move in. I know I haven't been the best about hanging out, but I promise, once I get my life in order, I will budget my time much better. Thanks for bearing with me. I know I complain alot, but I am super lucky to have what I have in my life, plus the people I surround myself with. Without being too cheesy, thanks to all those who enrich my life. It does not go unnoticed. Current Mood: grateful

I feel asleep for a little while...I guess it was a dumb idea. Not only am I more tired than I was, but now, I did something to my knee which really hurts. Oh well, at least I was able to nap a little. I think my body is finally fed up with not sleeping normal hours, nor sleeping for longer than a couple of hours at a time. This must be remedied soon.
I quit the job at Trade Secrets. It just wasn't enough money to drive to rivergate everyday. It's alright though because money is ok right now, giving me the opportunity to look for another (better paying job). Maybe even a job that uses my degree! I will continue uploading resumes later tonite.
I am gearing myself up to clean the boy's house. It is an absolute shithole and I am so tired of not being able to find my things. After the big clean (which conviently no one out of the 8 of us that live here is around), I will be decorating my hanukkah bush (yes I know how that sounds). Teresa was nice enough to give me a real christmas tree along with some decorations, so that will be going up as soon as I find a place to put it. And after that, Malek and I will be baking 72 holiday cookies. We went a little crazy at Wal-Mart today. But on a plus note, I was able to find some great gifts for my family that I can actually afford. I must be nesting or something. I have the overwhelming desire to decorate the house and bake goodies. Oh well, I guess thats beneficial for all the boys I live with.
Things probably are not going to work out in my favor with MTSU. One teacher has agreed to a withdrawl but other refuses to give me anything other than a WF (withdrawl for failing). I am so frustrated with the whole situation. At least it will be over no matter what by the end of this month. The sad thing is, I don't really care about getting Fs this semester. I care about listening to my mom be absolutely livid and tell me what a failure I am. I get sick of listening to it. I get sick of feeling like a loser deep down inside. I guess I'm not. I could be very successful if I could just motivate myself to do it. Being broke has been a good motivator to find a good paying job and join the day world again. It sucks though. I don't want a day job. I don't want to don a business suit. If I had it my way, I'd live in my jammies. But I can't. So I may as well stop bitching and make something of myself. However, I know that no matter what I choose to do, it still won't be good enough for her. But what are mother's for?
Alright, off to clean and cook... Current Mood: holiday

|Home Sweet Home.
I called out of work today. I'm a bad employee. I also could care less. Its too little money to pay the bills so I really need to get on looking for a new job. I also found out that Sephora is definently coming, so I'm gonna see about getting a job there. I can't wait. My mom said its not til spring but they're already hiring now, so my guess is it is sooner. Also, I am looking into jobs as a case worker or case manager for emotionally disturbed children. Hopefully, I won't have to be drug tested. I would fail miserably.
I am going down to MTSU tomorow to hopefully get all my withdrawl stuff taken care of. I am hoping to have all my shit figured out by the first of the year. Other than those two things, life is going well. I am extremely happy with the boy. Things couldn't be better.
I suppose I should go get in the shower so we can get dressed and head down to the club. I think I shall wear polka dots tonite... Current Mood: giggly
|Wednesday, November 23rd, 2005|
I am at the boy's house on the internet. This is because we now have cable AND internet. This makes for a very happy Kym. I started my new job today after being fucking fired from the last one. I worked for the world's biggest bitch and i got fired for no reason. Oh well, I am now working at trade secrets in rivergate. The job should be fun but I hate that I have to drive to rivergate everyday. At least I can have my hair any color I want it. I'm thinking about going back to red.
I need to look for a second job. This job will not provide enough income for me. There was a tutoring job in the paper that pays 20 dollars an hour. I will definently be looking into that. I also need to get all this withdrawl stuff taken care of with school. Once I do these two things, I will officially be all caught up and good to go.
I love my boyfriend by the way. He's fucking fabulous. Gonna go to sleep now... Current Mood: cheerful
|Friday, November 11th, 2005|
I think I may need to look for a new job soon. Clearly, I am not cut out for this salon because I refuse to kiss ass or be here when I'm not supposed to be. Fuck that. My time is my time. Anyway, this will be a short entry because I'm not supposed to be online anymore. Apparently when I have absolutely nothing to do, I should just sit here with my hand shoved up my ass. Oh well, fuck 'em. Current Mood: pissed off

|Update on Life.
Things seem to be looking up. First, I got out of the training on sunday and monday. Granted, I could use the money, but I am so sick of this place, so the less time here the better. Plus, I really like having mondays off. Secondly, my teacher called me back and I have gotten the okay to withdrawl with a W in both classes so as not to be fucked over later. My parents are less than thrilled with me, but at this point, I just don't care. Third, my boyfriend just bought an actual bed (no crappy fouton), and a dresser! So my stuff has a place to go and my back won't hurt so much. It meant alot to me that he wanted me to be comfortable over there. We really haven't gotten to spend much time together lately. We see each other, but its mostly at work or we're sleeping. I am so glad we have sunday to spend together. I just have to get through my horrible day tomorrow. Saturdays are brutal because its a 10 hour day and you get no break. For a lazy person like me, thats pretty long.
I'm going to use next week to really look for a job and get some money rolling in. I hate that my boyfriend has been supporting me. Maybe there is some crappy mall job I can work until Sephora gets here. I hope that the whole Sephora thing works out. I am so fucking sick of being broke.
Must go stare blankly into space until 8 pm. Current Mood: tired
|Thursday, November 3rd, 2005|
At work. Bored again. I am excited that there is an 80s nite on sunday thought! Yay!!!! But unfortunately my stupid job is making come in for a training on sunday and monday so I will be exhausted and pissy come tuesday. At least I don't have to worry about going to school on tues. Because I have withdrawn from the class. I'm still working on getting withdrawn from the weds class, but at least I confessed everything to my parents and now they know how poorly I was doing. Hopefully, I will be able to withdraw from both classes and I will not be attending school in january. Thank god. But because of this, I need to get a second job to support myself. Anyone know of any openings? I do have a college degree so that could help.
The weekend was nice. Busy, but nice. Troy and Teresa got married this weekend. It was absolutely beautiful and I had so much fun being in it. I'm pissed that I didn't catch the bouquet, but I'll survive. I think the boy was secretly sad that I missed it. He is wonderful by the way. Very happy, no complaints. We're thinking about living together to save money, but we'll just see if that plan works out. I'm already getting one boy roomate, I don't know if I want two more.
I would really like to go see Corpse Bride this weekend. I don't even know if its still out in theatres. We'll see I guess. I am so pissed that I have to work on sun and mon, but at least it will help to make me unbroke again. I am so fucking sick of being broke. My boyfriend has money rolling in all the time, I wish that was my situation.
I need to call Sephora and see if they can put in a good word for me when Sephora comes to Nashvegas in a month!!!! I am super excited about that. Anyway, I guess thats it. Life is good. Boy is good. School is soon to be over. Jobs are coming together. Money should be coming in.
Can't wait til Sunday.
Minx, Amanda, are you gonna dress up? Current Mood: calm
|Thursday, October 27th, 2005|
I am so unbelievably bored. We have had virtually nothing to do all day. I even took lunch an hour early because I couldn't take being bored anymore. Which was dumb, cause now I'm back and even more bored. I hope that I'll be able to start shutting stuff down early and maybe get out of here at least by 8:30. I've already called Raz, so now I'm out of fun things to do. And my boyfriend is probably still sleeping so I can't call him. Poop.
The wedding last saturday was absolutely beautiful. I got teary several times. But I didn't catch the bouquet which I am still pissed about. Its ok though because I've got another wedding this sunday to make up for it. I have been doing so much crap for this wedding. I am really excited for them and I can't wait to be in it!!!!! I get to wear a pretty dress and get some practice at walking down the aisle!
I have fallen completely behind in school. I haven't been in weeks and I haven't been keeping up with the work. I will probably fail. I'm going to talk to my parents next week and come clean about everything. It has been really stressing me out. I'm just going to suck it up and get it over with. If they want me to pay them back for wasting the semester, I will. But its not what I want to be doing right now and so I've got to do whats best for me. Thats it I guess. Current Mood: bored

|work work work
I'm at work. And we're waiting for the last stupid person to leave so I can check them out, count the money, and get the hell out of here. I need to go get changed, stop by the store and go to the Seraphim Shock show. I am super excited, but I really hope that they remember me cause I'll feel like a complete tool if they don't.
Tomorrow is gonna be a day from hell but tomorrow night is Amanda's wedding and that is awesome!!!!! I just need to figure out how to get there. If you read this doll, or anyone else who knows, post a comment with directions. I probably should have thought about this sooner. It's been a long week.
I guess thats pretty much it. I hate school and I'm probably going to end up failing both of my classes. This is not going to go over very well with my mom. Fun for me. Current Mood: bored

|She Gives me Money, when I'm in need.
I <3 trashy vh1 and mtv shows on a lazy sunday. I have been doing laundry for what seems like an eternity today. It's kind of exhausting because its such a long chore. But I hardly had any clean clothes left. My dad is being very kind and helping me pay my debt back to the bank. I've worked out a payment plan with him so I'm good to go on that. We'll see if this job comes through for weds but if not, hot topic is hiring and I would love to work there. If anyone has any pull with something like that, hook a sista up!
Club tonite! I am very ready to get plastered and do some major dancey dancey. I haven't quite figured out what to do with my hair yet, but I'm sure it will come to me when I'm standing in front of the mirror looking confused. Fake hair might be the way to go.
I desperately need to clean my apartment, but because I have no cable and my dvd player doesn't work, I hate being there cause I get bored. If someone wants to come FIX my dvd player, that would be just fantastic.
Other than the whole "I'm a slacker with no job and I'll probably fail school this semester" thing, life is going well. I'm quite content with everything. I know the job thing will fall into place, its just a matter of time. But I really should be better about my school stuff. I'm gonna try to spend a half hour a day working. That way, I don't get stuck doing it all the night before. Unfortunately, I do have a paper due on weds, but I guess I can start preparing soon. I should do it right now while I'm at my parents with nothing to do, but of course, I'm not. I vow to do it in one hour. Or maybe I'll do it before the club. We'll see. Ok, off to finish watching "When Harry Met Sally" and do more laundry. See everyone tonite! Current Mood: pleased
|Saturday, October 1st, 2005|
Long time, no update. I guess thats what happens when you don't have internet at your house. I don't have lots of things at my house. I am babysitting my sister this weekend, so at least there is free food, internet, and cable back in my grasp again. And no parents here bitching at me to get a job. I heard enough of that yesterday. My mother expressed her thorough disappointment at my lack of motivation these last few weeks. Like that was something I wasn't already aware of. I know I've slacked off. I know that I am very much in debt to the bank. I know that I need to get a job. I know that I need to go to my classes and do my homework. I am full aware of all this. But frankly, I just don't care. I don't care that I have no money, no job, I rarely go to school and even more rarely do my homework. I should care, but I don't. I guess I'm just having fun being 22. And I suppose I should stop doing that very soon.
If anyone knows any job openings, let me know. I guess I should come up with some money. As far as school is concerned, its very difficult to care, but I don't really feel like listening to my mother complain anymore so I suppose I'll start going.
I guess this is me getting back on track. Current Mood: lazy
|Monday, August 15th, 2005|
Just thought I would let you all know that I am safely back in Nashville and very worn out from my day. I will probably (make that more than likely) be at Boots Reverb tomorrow night. That is still happening right? Jimmy, Andrew, do you wanna go? Call me tomorrow.
p.s. Leaving a boyfriend back in Boston sucks alot. I that we're doing the long distance thing. It already feels like forever til I see him again. Current Mood: exhausted

|Coming back in T minus 5 days...
I am coming back to Nashville soon for those that are concerned. And I'm sorry if I've been a shitty friend by not being around/calling/posting. That should be changing soon. I am excited to get back to Nashville and see those I haven't seen in awhile. But it sucks because the boy will not be moving down until Decemeber. Poop.
Tomorrow is my last day of work.
In other news, I feel boring.
Going now. Current Mood: groggy
|Wednesday, July 27th, 2005|
Long time no update. Its difficult to update when you don't have your own computer at your fingertips. I have to use my roomates which is fine, but I never feel like taking the time to update for some reason. Life has been going pretty good. Still living with Rae and Moe and its working out very well. Still working at Sephora which is going alright. I'm not a fan of alot of my coworkers but I really enjoy all the free stuff I get. Not to mention my discount which will come in handy for my massive spending spree on my last day. Hopefully, they'll ship me off with a bunch of free stuff.
I'm still trying to set up apartment and school stuff for the fall. Neither is falling into place very well. I guess the apartment stuff will really go into full swing once I move back. I"m looking to live either with Brandi and Geri, its really whoever pans out first. It should be great. School is just being a pain because I have to stay on top of them do to anything for me. I still don't even know my schedule.
Anyway, for all you Nashville people, I will be back in town August 15 permanently. It feels weird to say that, but yeah, Nashville will be my place of residence again. I guess thats it for now. Current Mood: busy

|I <3 days off.
I am enjoying these few days off by relaxing, cleaning, and watching tons of sex and the city. The new apartment is working out well. I'm getting keys and stuff soon which will things much easier on the three of us. I really really like the two girls I'm living with. They are so easy going and so helpful for giving me a place to stay.
Yesterday, we had a BBQ and then went to watch the fireworks. This is the first year I wasn't in Nashville for the 4th and it was alright. I ate alot of good food, and snuggled into the arms of my fabulous boyfriend to watch the sky explode. I like fireworks alot. Today I need to get back to the grocery store and really stock up on healthy snack food and things to make lunch with. Right now, I have dinner things covered, but I need more quick, low-fat lunch type things. Any suggestions? Minx? Oh and they have to be cheap.
I've also been looking into what I have to do to go to school in the fall. It shouldn't be too rigorous but I think I'll still only be able to work part-time. Which sucks because that means that I'll have to rely on my mom to help me out with rent which I despise. I hate asking my parents for anything. Especially since I think I will be starting to tattoo myself relatively soon.
However, speaking of jobs back in TN, if anyone knows of any connections to work in makeup (i.e. department store counters, hair salons, or places like performance) please let me know. I really enjoy working with makeup and since there is no sephora in teneesee, which really blows I might add, I need to open up my options as much as possible. Brandi said she might be able to hook me up with a job at her work, but its not garunteed at all. I would love to work for MAC but I think that may be wishful thinking.
Ok, off to finish setting up my new room and then do some dishes. I get to meet the boy for free food (yay school caf) in a little bit so then I plan to stuff my face with waffles and granola and yogurt. Done. Current Mood: hot
