Valentine’s Day

This past Thursday, I was looking through my Trollbeads catalog because I wanted Frank to buy me a Trollbead for Valentine’s Day.  There was a trunk show that I was attending Friday, so I asked him to pick the ones he liked the most.  He picked out two, and I drove to the jewelry store that was having the trunk show on Friday and got a few beads.  The trunk show was lots of fun and I met a new person from online and she seemed really nice.  He gave me the money for the bead on Saturday.

Today I woke up before him, because the stupid clocks downstairs were clanging away and woke me up.  He came downstairs soon after and we watched tv.  After a bit I finally turned to him and wished him a Happy Valentine’s Day, with which he answered, “Well?”  I told him that he was getting his gift later, which was a dozen deluxe chocolate covered strawberries that I had ordered a few days ago and had to pick up today.

Since he had a big test that he couldn’t miss, and then he had work, I decided to come into work on my day off and work a few hours since my boss asked me if I could help out.  It turned out to be nearly 5 hours, which normally I wouldn’t have cared, but it sucked because pretty much every drive through customer today had a stick up their ass.   Frank dropped by while I was at work, which was nice, and I gave him his V-Day gift, and he seemed like he appreciated it.

I  ended up leaving work very tense and stressed.  I was able to finally make it to the chiropractor today and get an adjustment after I got off of work, which I sorely needed to do.  I did feel alot calmer afterwards.  Then I made a stop at this place where I used to get my eyebrows done, and for $8 it sure beats a) paying $22 at either Benefit or European Wax Center, and b) doing it myself, of which I am a total klutz and end up looking like Kriss Kross.  And that made me feel better.

But I can tell that I am still stressed.  We talked about going out to eat when he gets off of work, but you know what?  I don’t have any more money (I spent my tip $ on the chiropractor and my brows), and I don’t feel like getting dressed up, and I don’t know if I feel like going out to eat whenever he does make it home, which could be between 8:30 to 10.  Who knows.

I am sorry to say it, but I am just not feeling Valentine’s Day this year.  I probably should not have gone into work today.  I don’t think that helped at all.

Sorry to complain, but I guess I am just disappointed in today.  I really hated that Frank has been gone all day.  I am glad that he made the effort to stop by and see me.

I am going to try to chill and see if I can muster up the gumption to go out and grab a late dinner.  I would like to end Valentine’s Day on a positive note.

I think next year I am going to hand out valentine’s to all of my friends…  Spread some love and positivity.

what i got for valentine’s day

Two Weeks

Today marks that in exactly two weeks, my sister will be flying out here to visit me.  She will be arriving two days after my birthday.  I am excited, because this is the first time that a family member has come out to visit me.  It is only going to be for a brief time, but nonetheless I have requested the time off and luckily I have plenty of vacation hours to cover it.

So I came into some money yesterday after selling a few things, and now I am trying to figure out what to do with it.  I want to make a smart purchase.  My sister is flying out here soon, I could use the money for that and do some special things… That is a definite contender.  I could save it towards finishing up my wings tattoo.  I could do nothing at all with it and just save it.  If I do end up spending it, I would like it to be for things that will improve my life.  As tempted as I am by the Tiffany website… I have plenty of Tiffany and would much rather get that as a gift.  I could revamp my wardrobe; I haven’t bought myself a good pair of shoes or any decent clothes in years.  And by clothes, I mean clothes, not jackets, not hoodies.  I always have no qualms with buying those.  I need new shorts, skirts, pants, blouses… Hm.  I have some favorite sites online, such as Heavy Red… I love their stuff, but it is pricey and normally I wouldn’t spend the money on it.  I have one hoodie from them which I love but that’s it.  I could get those dark ash brown highlights I want.  I know that I have been wanting to get myself some serious skincare products.

I don’t know.  I will think it over for awhile…


Friday and I would like a pizza!

I really want to delete my Facebook.  And my MySpace.  I’ll keep Twitter.  Maybe.  I don’t really have any friends, so why do I have 180+ on Facebook?  If that were true, why aren’t people beating down my door or blowing up my phone?

I wonder if I am doing my part to keep in touch.  I think that once a day, I will post something on someone on my FB page.  Or maybe not.  I just don’t know anymore.  I mix up my co workers with my other friends, I make “friends” with people that are regular customers, but I don’t know if that constitutes as a friend… When you never hang out with them, I guess it doesn’t.  Friends hang out, right?  Maybe not everyday, but it happens.  Friends call each other, they text each other… Right?  I think a friendship would have to involve actual contact.

Next Friday, I am most likely going to drive to a jewelry shop that I have never been to in order to attend a Trollbeads trunk show and to also meet someone.  I met her online, she seemed open and friendly, but it may turn out to be nothing.  For some reason, not many people like me, or… maybe I am investing too much time into people that I really have nothing in common with.

I wear alot of black, I wear boots, I don’t do shit to my hair except maybe braid it, I sometimes wear makeup, I like jazz and industrial, I don’t do drugs, I love orchids and herpetology, I like expensive bags/jewelry and cheap clothes… Whatever.  When I compare it to others that I have been striving to become friendly with, I have nothing in common with them.  I really got to stop trying to make friends with people that have nothing in common with me.  I am simply making them feel awkward and making myself feel bad.

I have the strongest urge to get my credit card and buy something.  But I won’t.  I have to write a big check as soon as my credit card bill comes in, and I need to remind myself of that everytime I want to use it.  Only a month and I am already seeing the addiction to my damn credit card.  Sad.

I really hate posting things like this, but I do think it’s important to have a well rounded view on how tattoos are perceived in the World today. Sometimes we surround ourselves with like-minded people and forget that there are some people out there who just aren’t as understanding and open.

It’s always people who don’t have tattoos and that don’t understand the lifestyle who have the strongest opinions. There is nothing wrong with saying that you don’t like tattoos, that’s fine. The problem arises when you cast judgement on people who you don’t know and tell them what they are doing is wrong without having any justification. This article was reposted in it’s entirety from The Spectrum, the independent publication for the University of Buffalo.
