I think my icon perfectly sums up my mood at the moment.

The Friends of the Library had their annual book sale this weekend. Today, from 4 to 6 p.m., they had the $5.00 bag sale. I dragged [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] there, since we were already hanging out. xD I got a ton of books, including a cookbook and some ~romance~ novels. Overall, I was quite pleased.

[Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and I were there for more than one reason, however. We've decided to... read Twilight. I, for one, am curious to see what the big deal is about, and if they do actually suck as much as people say they do.

The book sale didn't have any copies, so we got two copies of the first book from the library. We've already made it through the first two chapters, and right now I want to punch Bella in the face. She reminds me so much of a Mary Sue: all of the boys love her, everyone wants to talk to her and be her friend, and she's way too stuck up about how smart she is. She is also too whiny, and the dialogue in these first two chapters is so bad. Hopefully we can make it through the first book. xD

Work has been busy; school has been "meh." I need to start thinking about applying to CSU, even though there are so many things I need to do at Front Range first.


On the dating front- I've gone out on at least four (I think) coffee dates since I started doing the LoveBug thing. That's four more dates than I've had in the past year and a half. Too bad I haven't liked any of the guys I've been matched with. No chemistry whatsoever, and some of them have been jerks. Hopefully someone will come along that I'll actually feel something with.

On the plus side, I've lost a little over 18 pounds since the beginning of September.

Whoo! This last few days have been really busy. Work has been kicking into high gear, and school's already moving at a fast pace. I spent three hours doing my homework last night, no joke. Science isn't my strong suit, but I'm going to try the best that I can and call it good. :D

I had my yearly review yesterday, which went awesome. These things seem to get easier and easier every year. I also got a raise, which makes me incredibly happy. More money is always a good thing.

Now, to the thing I need advice about!

So, I have a first date coming up. More than likely, at least two of them. Since I haven't really gotten out and dated in about two years, I am definitely nervous about the whole thing. I want things to go over well, and that includes picking the right outfit.

I was hoping that I could poll the people on my f-list and ask everyone what they think is appropriate "first date" attire. I'm meeting this first guy for coffee, so I'm assuming that it'll be nothing more than casual. I was thinking jeans and a shirt with a cardigan or something over it, but I don't know. Is that too fancy? I would really appreciate any advice! <3

Okay! After the very interesting laptop drama over the last few days, I have finally got a laptop back! Luckily, it's much nicer than the one I originally had. x3 Apparently the one I have now is a gaming laptop, so it'll play tons of games no problem. And that includes Morrowind. So I'm really excited to check out what exactly I can do with this baby. And this new one comes with stuff like Microsoft Money, so I can keep track of my accounts and all that even more easily. And I can check to see how much debt I'm in... >_> I'm also sad that I had to lose all of my RP stuff, icons, music, etc. when I lost my other laptop, but... hey, there was nothing I could do about it.

I went to Life of the Party today, and ended up buying four pairs of shoes. xD But they're all very cute! Two of them are the same shoe, just in different colors: one is with pink satin and black lace, with a three inch heel, and the other pair is red satin with black lace and a three inch heel. I also ordered a pair of knee high boots with ribbons that lace up the side, and some schoolgirl shoes with three inch heels. x3 I can't wait to get them~ I love shoes. No question. And if I go to Suite 152 again and wear that same outfit I did on Tuesday, I can wear my new red heels. x3 *flail*

Speaking of! It was totally awkward seeing Larry there. xD Especially after everything that had happened between us; it was strange to have him wanting to talk to me and hug me. He even invited me over to see the closet he's been living in at Billy's. o_o So I'm a little weirded out by him right now, especially when I think about that time he called me in May. xD Stupid Larry. But him and I meeting again had to happen sooner or later; I'm glad that it happened now instead of at NDK. That would have been really awkward.

I've been really tired lately. And I still need to finish getting my room together; there's still stuff all over the place, especially now that I've unpacked everything in the boxes I brought back from Loveland. Sigh. I really don't want to live at home any more, especially considering the fact that someone in my family ruined my laptop and forced me to go out and buy a new one. But, considering how much in debt I am at the moment, it's probably a good thing that I'm going to be living at home for a while. xD With no rent to worry about, I can focus on paying that off, as slowly as it may be.

Movie night with my co-workers tomorrow! It'll be kind of fun to spend time with everyone outside of work... I'm actually looking forward to it. I work with some pretty cool ladies.

Bah. I feel lame updating my LJ in a span of two days. xD; It's not like I really do anything. I pretty much just work and go home or go to school. I don't really hang out with my friends or anything like that; although, Joe seems to be determined to change that. I was supposed to go to Brush to see my family for Easter (even though I don't celebrate it), but I managed to get out of it since we're all going to the zoo on Sunday. I'm looking forward to it, even if it doesn't seem like it. xD I guess that I'm just lame and don't say or express what I'm really thinking... although I wish we were going to the museum instead. I hope I have fun. I'm seriously going to cry if I don't.

So, yeah, my relationship with Larry seems to have fizzled out. xD The last time we met up was so awkward; it was basically him asking me one question and staring at me blankly for the rest of the time. I ended up having to ask him questions just to get him to actually talk to me. At least Joe was on my side about it. xD: According to him, I should say "fuck it" and go find someone else. "You deserve much better, if he's going to be an asshole about it." It made me happy that he was defending me; I thought it would have been the other way around, seeing as how he's known Larry longer.

So, I guess I'm going to be staying the whole weekend at NDK after all. @_@ I'm giving it one more shot; hopefully third time is the charm and I'll have a lot more fun this year than I have the previous two years. It's been kind of awkward, as I was totally miserable these past two years. I guess that as a last resort, I can always bring my laptop and internet thingy in case the same thing happens this year. There are times at NDK I wish that I drove myself so I could just go home when I wanted to, but... xD Well, we'll just see how things go.

So, here's a tenative list of cosplays I'm going to try and do for NDK:

-Risa (definitely the one I'm looking forward to; Angie wants to see pics xD)
-Hachi
-Female Aya Fujimiya
-Kabuto (a possibility; it'd be nice to be included with the other Naruto cosplays, but I'm still undecided)
-Possibly Setsuka and Nanao, if needed (and if I can get a hold of the proper accessories again).

Dropping Matsumoto, because there's no point if I don't have a Gin. And I was briefly considering doing Hiro again, but... no. I sucked as him, so I really don't want to have to go through that torture again. Other than that, I really can't think of any cosplays that I can do.

Been feeling kind of bleh, to be honest. The only good thing about the past few days is that Angie's been cheering me up with Kensei/Risa love. They make me go "x333".

Work has totally been keeping me down lately. xO This past week I had 38 hours scheduled... it's good money, but still. xD People just don't seem to realize that I need my days off, too. Of course, I could always turn them down, but... if I do, I feel bad. And I'd like to think that because I'm taking their shifts now, if I need some covered in the future they'll do the same. But, yeah. I'm finally going to get Tina-chan her CD player with this week's big paycheque~! That's exciting.

On another note, what's not so exciting? My first gross experience at Macy*s. xD It's kind of hard to believe that I've been there almost two years, and have now only run into something really nasty in the fitting rooms. I've been around when other people have had their experiences, but it's never happened to me personally. It's nothing too bad compared to what some of my friends have experienced, but... still. xD Anyway, when I was working my shift on Friday, I found a used diaper in the fitting room. T_T It was very gross... even a little warm, still. xD; *sigh* I swear, people are just odd in what they think is acceptable behavior in public places.

And I hate my date with David about a week or so ago! It was pretty fun... we went bowling and then went to Starbucks after that. :D He wants to go mini golfing when we get together next... or he wants to take me to a shooting range and teach me how to shoot a gun. xD; He has some very strange ideas, I think. But both sound fun to me~

And I also went to Red Robin for the first time in months about a week ago, as well. I was hoping to see both Derek and Chewy, since Derek pestered Shannon and me about coming in. xD But it was only Chewy... it was nice to see him, though! And Carter works at the Red Robin, too! o_O I thought that he worked at the one in Loveland, so it was a surprise to see him. xD He came over and we chatted for a bit, and he made me promise to come in and see him more often.

I've also had my first few therapy sessions with Natalie. She seems like a really nice person... and it's been kind of stabilizing to get back into therapy. xD It's like "Okay, I'm in therapy, the world is normal now." But yeah... I'm going to see her for the summer (at $15 a session, though ;o;). But she's taking Britney's place in the fall, so I'm probably going to continue seeing her once school starts again.

Speaking of... I finally decided to take "World Music." xD It's my last semester, and I want to have a few fun classes. And I'm much happier when I have a music class, anyway. But I'm the first person to sign up for it. I wonder if I'll be the only one in it..? There will probably be more people signing up as it gets closer to August.

It's a good thing I'm working all of these hours, though. e_e; Manga is taking over my life! I'm already buying them so much... and now there's a new series I want to check out. xD It is so good, though.

OMG!!!!!!!!! :3

xD Big news. I have a date on Sunday! It's with that guy I met at Charity's party, Jacob. He and I are going to be going out to breakfast or dinner, depending on what details we work out tomorrow.

And mussels and I have our weekends off together~! That makes me very happy.

But, yes. I am tired. xD Time to sleep.
