An almost 10 hour day today, followed by at least another 10 hour day tomorrow. Yay, work! I am going to try and get there by 6:00 tomorrow morning and get a head start... I still have a lot of stuff to do before we turn the month.

Huzzah for geeking out before bed! )

Not much has been going on in my life, yet I feel the need to post something. xD

It's hard to believe that January's almost gone. This month has gone by way too quickly. Work has been kind of weird-- some days, it's awesome; other days, it's just shit. Hopefully I have more awesome days in the future.

I've been talking a lot more with my sister, so that's been nice.

I'm also having a really good time with this guy Lovebug set me up with. He's a little younger than me, but he's really sweet and easy to get along with. We're having our third date(?) on Wednesday hopefully, so... yeah. Not bad for having just met him on the 10th.

I've been keeping up with my diet and fitness stuff religiously over the past few weeks, and it's paid off. I can fit into a smaller size! :D I'm at 16W right now, but I can wear 14W stuff. The 14W is the smallest plus size, so after that... I'll be in normal sizes. I don't think I've been in a normal size since my sophomore/junior year of high school. I'm probably going to cry when the day comes that I'm able to fit into a regular 18 or 16.

Taking the semester off has been pretty nice. I've been keeping track of all of the movies I've watched and the books I've read. So far, for January I have read 10 books and watched 6 movies. Not too shabby. In addition, Ana and I have been marathoning Ronin Warriors, which has been amazing.

Short post for tonight, but I'm trying to finish up laundry before I head to bed. :D All in all, January's been a pretty decent month.

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.
jupiterhalo: ([Misc] Ten million dollars)
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
jupiterhalo: ([Misc] Worst date ever)
Yesterday was a busy day for me! I'm not really used to that. I went on a bike ride with my dad in the morning, and found a cookbook and a new spare comforter. Then I went down to LotP in the afternoon and got made up like a zombie, in order to walk around NewWest Fest and promote the zombie crawl that's happening on October 23rd. That was both fun and exhausting, even though I got a bad sunburn on my shoulders and back. xD A bunch of people thought I was actually injured, and one guy thought I had AIDS. In the evening, [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] went shopping for new clothes and then went to Old C's with her dad.

Last night I had the worst trouble sleeping. I'd wake up every two to three hours on account of my sunburn hurting like a mofo. At about 4 I decided to just get up and go to the store since I needed things. I feel bad, since I woke Joe up when I was putting my stuff away in the freezer. xD But he doesn't work today, so it's not as bad as it could be.

School starts tomorrow, which will be nice. That way I can get it over with, instead of dreading it. Other than that, nothing has really been going on.

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Yeah, I still have the teddy bear my uncle gave me when I was born. I used to sleep with him every night and carry him around with me on trips and stuff. Now he's laying in my hope chest, at my parent's house.

Even though I didn't do much at all this weekend, I still feel really stressed out about stuff. Hopefully I'll be able to relax and mellow out during the week, but I doubt it. Tuesday is Payables, after all.

And here is a meme taken from [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]. Holy crap do I feel old.

Are you a '90s kid? )

Wow, it's been a long time since I've updated. xD I'm thinking about getting a Facebook, simply because people seem to use that a lot more than LJ. And also so I can play games and waste my time that way. But we'll see if I do end up getting one or not.

Ummm, let's see! The 28th was the Lady Gaga concert at the Pepsi Center, which was in a word: awesome. I had a good time, my friends seemed like they had a good time, and it was great to just dance to some good pop music.

I started a diet on the 26th; I think it's going pretty well! It's one of those diets that make you eat five or six times a day, which is something I'm still struggling with. Normally I eat two meals a day. So I've pretty much cut out all of the snacks they tell you to eat, since I feel full pretty much all of the time. I've also forgotten to eat breakfast most of the days since I started, but hopefully I'll start to get into the habit of doing that. [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] has been awesome in helping me with the diet; she's been cooking dinner for me and helping me keep on track. [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] also hooked up the Wii Fit for me, so I'm going to try and get up early to use that for at least half an hour every morning.

Work has been one pain in the ass after another. There's so much drama going on at the office right now; it's been a challenge to muster up the energy to even face it every day. One of my coworkers is an idiot, but when everyone complains about her to our boss, we're suddenly "picking on her" and "ganging up on her." In my opinion, if a lot of people complain about this particular woman, shouldn't that show that something is obviously wrong with the way she works? My boss is sacrificing the office morale for the sake of one person, and it's pissing me off. I've decided I'm done with all of that stuff-- I'm going to go in, do my work, and go home; hopefully I'll be able to skirt a lot of the stuff that's going on.

Sheena is also having a party on the 7th, and I honestly don't want to go now after everything that's happened in the last week. But, I already agreed to go, and I'm hoping it won't be as bad as I think. We'll see how I feel on Saturday, though.

My sister is home from CU for about a week or so; we're going to go have lunch tomorrow. Hopefully things will be better between us now than they were on my birthday. xD We did manage to have a civilized conversation on Sunday, when I went over to my parent's home for breakfast before my dad and I took a bike ride.

School starts on the 23rd, which will be nice. I won't feel so lazy every day when I get home from work, as long as I have a class to look forward to. I'm only taking Meteorology and then I'll finally be done at Front Range, so I'm hoping that I'll do well.

Other than that, not much has been going on. Just replaying some old video games and getting through a few books in my stack.
jupiterhalo: ([Clownana] Glare)
Goodbye April and hello May. Thank god for that. April just sucked as a month, so I'm hoping May will be better. I don't think that staying up for almost 24 hours on Thursday really helped, either.

Since I just spent the last few hours going through my iTunes and updating it, here's a meme all about music. xD

Search these words in your iTunes and write down the first song of the list that comes up.

Happy: "So Happy I Could Die" by Lady Gaga.
Love: "I Want to Know What Love Is" by the Rock of Ages Broadway Cast.
Hate: "I Hate Myself For Loving You/Heat of the Moment" by the Rock of Ages Broadway Cast.
Light: "Moonlight Shadow" by DJ Mystik.
Dark: "Fearless (250 and Dark Stars)" by Falling Up.
Good: "Damn You Look Good and I'm Drunk" by Cobra Starship.
Bad: "Bad Company" by Bad Company.
Hello: "Hello" by Evanescence.
Bye: "Goodbye My Lover" by James Blunt.
Up: "Waking Up" By Julien-K.
Down: "The Final Countdown" by the Rock of Ages Broadway Cast.

I have a ton of music in my library; these songs are the first ones that showed up that I actually have checked.

I ended up riding my bike a lot this weekend! Eight miles yesterday, and another 12 today. I'm quite proud of myself for getting back into the groove of things and taking advantage of the nice weather we've been having.

I went to LotP today, after [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and I finished cleaning the office and played a bit of The Bouncer, and ordered some new shoes to wear to work. I'm very excited to get them, as they're fricking adorable.

I went to look at cars yesterday with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com], since I need a new one desperately. xD We ended up spending about three hours at one dealership, because the guy helping us was totally smarmy and couldn't understand the words "I'm just looking, thanks."

I don't really think there's anything else pressing going on right now. Just work and school, pretty much. Although, I'll be really happy once the semester is over. Work can stop being a bitch any time, now.
jupiterhalo: ([Supernatural] Four score and...)
Does anyone else think it's weird that you can receive CPR training online? I keep seeing ads for it when I go to log in to LJ. I don't think I'd trust anyone who got his/her training online to give me CPR. xD

Work needs to stop being a bitch. This week has been so horrible.

There is going to be a Krieg listening party at a club in Denver on the 26th. It sounds like fun! I really want to go. :< Too bad I probably won't be able to.

And finally, I am so tired of snow. Give us spring and let us keep it, damn it.

Bleh, guess I should go ahead and take a shower, seeing as how I'm up already.
jupiterhalo: ([RvB] Grif on fire)
Three weeks ago, I borrowed a few books from the library. One of them is a 589 page book, entitled "The Good War": An Oral History of World War II.

I just finished reading it today. And that makes me incredibly disappointed in myself. Normally I don't have any problems finishing a 589 page book once I pick it up and start reading. Why did this one take so long? Now I have to renew the other 5 books I borrowed at the same time, since they're due tomorrow and I haven't even had a chance to start any of them.

Sigh. But, on a good note, a lady complimented me at work yesterday. That made the rest of my day go by happily, especially since I was at the front desk all day.
jupiterhalo: ([Resident Evil] Cute Jill)
Not a lot has been going on lately! Just school and work, for the most part. xD Oh, and trying to get ready for Wasabi, which is next week. Craaaazy. It'll be nice to get away from Fort Collins for a while, even though I'm not too excited about the convention itself. Since I never do anything related to the con anyway, it's just a chance for me to do what I feel like. I am looking forward to seeing the band play, though. That'll probably be the highlight of the weekend.

I'm trying not to sweat the small stuff. I think I've been letting too many small things bother me lately, and it's had an impact on my health, especially my sleep. I read something yesterday and it made me ridiculously happy. xD Kind of sad that the little things can do that, but... well, I think that I just need to take those feelings when I get them, since I don't get them too often.

Oh, yeah. I think it's sad that in order to get up at 6:45, I need to wake up at 5:00. Which is what I did this morning. Sob.

So, on to the fandom notes! xD

The CW has chosen to renew Supernatural for another season, which will be the last one. Of course, I'm happy that we fans get another season, as I'm not ready to part with the show yet. But, really... where can you go after this season ends? Especially if the writers aren't going to stretch the apocalypse out into season six? I've heard that they want to go back to the feel and style of season one. But, I personally think that would be kind of a letdown after the epic!storylines we've had for the last few seasons. Oh well. I'll watch the beginning of season six and decide from there.

Resident Evil. Oh man, I spend way too much money for this game franchise. xD First, I needed to buy a wireless adapter for my 360, since I couldn't connect the Ethernet cable to the modem/router. That cost $100.00 alone. Then I had to buy a gold membership for my 360 account, and 1000 points to download the new content that was released. So, that's another $21.00 right there. But it was so worth it. To me, the story of Resident Evil is the story of Chris and Jill, so I was happy to play as them again. More new content should be coming out soon, which will be awesome. And "Lost in Nightmares" had the Itchy Tasty file! xD A truncated version, yes, but... still. So awesome.

I think that's everything. Time to go take a shower and get ready for work.
jupiterhalo: ([Supernatural] Four score and...)
Been a pretty busy couple of weeks! :D

School is in full swing by now. I need to go to the Vidiot sometime soon and pick out a few movies to watch for my class. One of the assignments my teacher gave us is to watch a movie set in the Middle Ages and do a "History or Hollywood" type assignment with it. I think I've also picked out a person to do my first biography on, which is due in less than two weeks. I've also found that eating something before class will help me not fall asleep. xD

Let's see... I started my second job cleaning on Friday. It's not very hard; there's just a lot to do and it's very tedious. However, it's an extra $175 a month that will go right into my savings. :D And I only have to do it once every two weeks. It should get easier as time goes on.

I hung out with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] on Friday. That was really fun, as I needed to unwind after two and half hours of straight cleaning. We got dinner and watched Zombieland. I liked it a lot, and I'm happy that they're going to make a sequel to it. Then, on Saturday, I went to see a movie with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]. We saw When in Rome, which was very cute. And funny, too, without being really stupid. That unfortunately overlapped with Shaun's birthday party, but I don't think he's too upset about me not being there.

I've also finally beaten Resident Evil 5, which is kind of sad that it took me this long to beat it. Having my own 360 helped a lot with that, though. I'm in the process of replaying it, and can hopefully unlock a better alternate costume for Chris than his stupid Safari zebra outfit.

I headed to the library and a few stores today. Got a lot of books at the library, including the rest of the Tales of the Otori series and a few books on World War II, in addition to the books I got for my biography project. I also found a Jensen Ackles movie for $3.00 while I was out shopping. It sounds really lame, but... for three bucks, I couldn't resist.

Hmmm... yeah, I thought I had more to say, but I think that's it.
jupiterhalo: ([Paradise Kiss] Whee!Miwako)
After a few days of unsuccessfully trying to install the copy of Windows 7 I purchased, I've decided to give up for now and go back to Vista. xD When and if I decide to install it again, I may need to take my laptop to Best Buy or some other professional so they can see what's exactly wrong with my computer.

Anyway! Not much has been happening... school sucks. I'm totally rebelling against my online class, which is bad. I need it to graduate and move on. But I'm finding out that I really need classroom contact and an actual instructor to learn from. :| I'm thinking about dropping it and just putting off my graduation from Front Range for another semester, so I can go ahead and take it on campus. I'll look and see if I can drop it now and get a refund.

Speaking of money, we got our quarterly bonuses on Friday! 8D That was quite a blessing, seeing as how I was in desperate need of funds. I put $500 in my savings account, which is over half of my bonus, and placed the rest in my checking. Hopefully that $500 will stay there, unless I have an emergency and need to spend it.

Rob Thomas concert on Tuesday and the Regina Spektor concert on my birthday! I swear, I've been to more concerts in the last month than I have all year. ALH also had their first public Fort Collins performance last night. Despite a few sound problems, they sounded great! Everyone in the crowd really had an awesome time, it seems like.

Man. My birthday's in less than two weeks, and I still have no idea what I want to do for it.

Okay, time to end this boring post. :|

320- Wow.

You know, I think this is the most I've updated my LJ in a week's time... ever. Kind of awesome! But also kind of peyote.

Man. I've done almost nothing since I got home. xD Here's been my day, in review:

I worked a nine hour shift today (it was Payables day today). I got everything done, but it took fricking forever. Man, I hate Payables day. At least it only comes once a month.

After work, I went and got dinner, then ate it while I watched some episodes of Supernatural. I was planning on taking a nap and then starting the homework I need to do after that.

I got the nap in, and I've been looking at my Accounting homework since about 8:00 p.m. Is it done? No. Has it even been started? ...No.

I did do one productive thing, though. I finished tagging all of the entries in my LJ. xD Looking back through some of them makes me cringe. I don't like the person I used to be, and I wonder if I'm still that person. I think that, if I had the chance, I would go back and change things. Decisions, people, events... I think that I would try to do things differently.

Homework time now, I think. Or maybe a shower first.

And lastly, a Halloween meme! :D

My Halloween party! )
jupiterhalo: ([300] This is Sparta)
Back from NDK. 8D I'm going to have to make this short, since I'm tired and about ready to go to bed.

Pictures are coming. I have about 45 of them to post, so I'm definitely not getting to them tonight. But all of them turned out really great!

I had a lot of fun this weekend. The con itself was bleh; definitely not the best I've been to. However, it was nice to get away from work and school and be with my friends. It was especially nice to see some who I haven't seen since Wasabi back in March.

Okay, bedtime now. <3

309- Sigh.

About 12 hours later and I'm still pissed off at that guy. xD

Great. I have a feeling that this entire week will be like today was.
jupiterhalo: ([RvB] Perfectly sane)
Oh, Caboose. xD I love that. "Now we're back to square one: scary square." I rewatched Red vs. Blue: Reconstruction tonight when I should have made myself useful by cleaning, or... ummm, filling out this paper for work, or sleeping. Mostly cleaning, though. Much love for Agent Washington.

I didn't expect it to actually happen, but my boss at work is actually going to do our reviews tomorrow and Thursday, right before she goes on vacation for a week. When I hadn't heard anything since our meeting at the beginning of the month, I was beginning to doubt her. xD That's the paper I need to fill out for work; she wants our personal opinions on what the office as a whole is doing well/could improve on, and what we personally are doing well/could improve on. I don't want to fill it out. :| I wasn't nervous about it before, but now I feel it a little bit. Tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. is D-Day.

Speaking of work... I have a small rant. xD You can skip this if you like, it's just me being mad.

Rant under here! )

I did have a nice surprise waiting for me tonight. There is a new, gorgeous looking trailer for Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles out. [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] was wonderful enought to post it in her personal LJ and the comm she runs.

I cannot fucking wait for that game.
jupiterhalo: ([RvB] Grif on fire)
Oh man. I am so unbelievably tired. I went to bed at 10:30 last night, had trouble falling asleep, and woke up at 3 a.m. Finally got up at 5 and headed into work at 6:30, where I had a really stressful day. xD Even with that extra hour and a half, with no lunch, I still didn't get everything done that I wanted to. Although, I did finish about six days of retail today, so that was pretty awesome.

Supernatural starts officially next month! I'm very excited for season five, although I'll be down in Denver for NDK when it premieres.

Oh yeah! [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and I saw this guy playing the trumpet in his car while driving today. Not only was he a retard, but he was also a douchebag. xD We tried to get a picture of it but we couldn't see the guy clearly in it.

Red vs. Blue is slowly taking over my life again. It's been nice getting back into the fandom (and actually seeing the majority of the series) after so many years of being away from it.

Also, I'm never trusting my dad and anything he says again. Ever.

I hope I don't feel so angry at people before the week is over.

303- Ouch.

Today was a pretty good day! I got a $905 paycheck, found a digital camera I liked (which came with a free 2 GB memory card) and I finished my summer school class with an A minus. :D

However, I did take a really nasty fall in the parking lot of Subway when I was on my lunch. xD My left hand has like... three Band-Aids on it to cover all of the damage. Some guys saw me eat it and were all concerned. I told them that my pride (and my poor, new cellphone) was the only thing hurt, and one of them was like "Yeah, I did the same thing earlier in the week and busted up my knee pretty badly!" At least I'm not alone in my clumsiness. Now my arms hurt like a mofo, though.

I am really tired. ._. I should start cleaning my room, though...
