I guess I will share what I did today. I did the usual amount of homework today. I admired my newly painted nails (oui madame by essie) as I typed everything out on the computer. I went on my new DeviantArt account (where i put all of my art/drawings) for a few hours (i promise, i'm not cheating on it's my life blog!). I got a shower a little after four today (because i'm lazy, that's why) and put my makeup on afterwards. I went back and forth looking at my stats for my blogs. I laughed at my brother when he said he "lost" his butt after 30 leg sit ups (as most 12 year olds do, they try to prove their sisters right... and by golly he did those 30 leg sit ups!). I told him I did 30 a day and after he did 30 panting on the floor *haha* I told him I did them 15 at a time. That followed with a small cry/laugh ;D I straightened up my room, did my laundry (which reminds me, i need to switch my clothes to the dryer), and ran out of my chap stick.
...That about sums up my day :)
Yes, I have heard this song :) When I first listened to it, I thought Taylor Swift sounded super whiny. But I guess I got so used to it that it didn't bother me as much ;]
I find that when I'm dreaming now, it's of me at my favorite beach house taking a nap in my little room. That place make me feel so relaxed, and the best part is, is that I'll be going there in about a month or so (i forget *haha*). I know that little town like the back of my hand, and the familiar sounds of seagulls and waves crashing on top of each other are endlessly beautiful. We walk everywhere, there. And when the day is done we watch the starts reflect on the ocean by our campfire, with the aroma of gram crackers in the air. The days there feel endless, but in a good way.
Don't get me wrong, I love Disneyland!!! I am obsessed with that place XD But this place is second on my favorite places in the U.S. so far.
There, I feel like I can just get away from it all. It makes me feel safe and sound *sniff*
I'm going to go see Beauty in the Beast 3D and we're leaving in like.... three minutes! Thought I'd stop by and say that I am still alive and thank you for all of your sweet comments in the last post :D I can't wait to see the Tangled short ^^ So excited! gtg4now ;]
Sunday was just weird. It all started out to be a really great day! Because my birthday was when all of the snow decided to drop in on us *haha* my family said they would go out to the mall with me later since we couldn't go anywhere. Sunday was the most available day for all five of us to go out. And I had a blast... for the first few hours.
One of the things I have been... I wouldn't say into, but interrested in getting, is getting a second ear peircing. For one of my birthday presents, my parents agreed to let me get one! So I got my second peircing done at the mall. I was a little nervous, and it hurt a little bit, but I am happy with the results. I'll try to get pictures... maybe.
I had gotten a lot of gift cards for my birthday, so I decided I would spend them then. We went to Bath & Body Works and I looked around for a while but didn't really see anything a desperatly wanted to have so I thought I'd come back another time. Second trip was to go get big pretzels and Starbucks X).
And yes I got gift cards to a fancy makeup store! I was completely siked about it. When I got to the store, I had to go look around at everything to see if I saw anything eye catching. And then I went back a second time to see if the things I really wanted were there or not. The main brand I was hoping they'd have was M.A.C. and I was super bummed because I new at least three things from MAC that I would have spent my money on. After about an hour, Mom suggested I ask someone. Well the person I asked was someone working within another company, who was only selling body scrubbers and ONLY body scrubber. I am not kidding, twenty minutes of my mom's and my time were completely wasted by listening to this gal who went on and on about how briliant this new design was. When my mom finally asked for a brosure and politely told the lady we'd "look it up when we get home", the lady went on for another then minutes on why it's the best scrubber the whole family can use! I was absolutely firious! Not at the makeup store but at the pushy level this gal was trying to sell us this stupid body scrubber that costed way more than a one way ticket to California!
I finally chose a great lipstick that I am in love with, and I sort of... took my frustration out on the lady who rang up my lipstick, "I don't know if I would like a membership card. No, thanks anyway!" It was the rudest thing I had ever done to a person who worked at a store. The store was 88 degrees and I had sweated all of my makeup off, my hair began frizz, and I was exausted. My dad and brothers, who had waited outside for over an hour, looked at my small bag I carried out side of the store, "How can that be it? Did you leave the rest inside?"
I was miserable. Miserable and completely humiliated! How could I have been so happy from one moment and then the next be short tempered with the nice lady at the check out stand. I was just happy we were going home. Until to hungry boys said they were hungry, "Hungry???" I said, "How can you be hungry, after eating those pretzels and shakes from Starbucks??? We ate like less than two hours ago!" I guess three out of the five of us were hungry, so we stopped at Red Robbin. This can't be happening to me! I thought. When we parked I was so emotional, I burst into tears and refused to go in. My mom comforted me and said I could have something to drink if I wasn't hungry, "I just *hiccup* want to go h-home." The boys were already inside by now, and mom finally convinced me to come out of the car.
When we were seated, the waiter asked for our drink orders, "For you, Miss?" He said. There was a pause as I sat hunched in my seat, elbows on the table. "Diet coke," I said. My mom knew it had been several months since I had even touched soda and asked, "Are you sure you don't want lemonade or ice tea, hun?" "I'll have diet coke." I said a little sharper. Where were my emotions dragging me to? What was I thining?? After an hour passed of watching the ice in my diet coke melt, I finally sipped the soda. The bubbles burned down my throat. I felt discusted by my emotions and kept drinking the diet coke.
I had forgotten about youth group! I had forty-five minutes to get ready, and I was falling apart. I couldn't find any clothes to wear and I cried all of my "done" makeup off and that made me cry even more. My mom finally pulled out some clothes from her closet, pulled out her makeup and flat iron and made me up. I just stood and let her do my makeup and hair. That was the most heart warming moment for me in a long time. I love my mom so much. Sometimes I don't stop to think of how lucky I am for her ;)
*Sigh!* Just needed to get all of that off my chest. How was your Sunday? :)
