I just want nice things...
I have one final exam left, and I'm procrastinating AND stressing out at the same time. Yay me.
I lost my camera remote control, so I've had a really hard time taking self pictures. I really can't work with a timer! D: I always have to make a bazillion poses before I get the right one, and even then, it sometimes needs some tweaking. Basically, that means no outfit post in a while (I've already ordered a new remote control, I'm vain like that), because I hate mirror pictures, they never look right, and all the mirrors in the house are somehow dirty, and I can't be bothered with cleaning them. Anyway, I haven't been dressing particularly well lately. Tomorrow will probably be one of those days I'll be wearing a v-neck with jeans. So uninspired.
The other night, I almost burned down my house! I was a bit hungry for a snack, so I put a croissant in the small oven and left it there for a few minutes. I came back, and it was in MOTHERFUCKING FLAMES. The oven's door was already becoming a bit black, the croissant looked like a meteoroid, and my first instinct was to pull the door down and blow on the fire. T__T;; Needless to say that didn't help AT ALL, so I ultimately yelled for help, waking everyone up. I also splashed the croissant with water, which, in retrospect, could have made things much worse. My mom grabbed it with pliers and put it in the sink and drowned it in water. What would I do without my mom? :D; The kitchen and hallway smelled like smoked till morning. T_T Sniff. I was scared shitless.
Now I'm hungry and I don't wanna go near the oven. :|
A long time ago, I discovered the song I Love You by Yutaka Ozaki, and I immediately fell in love with it. This rendition by ayaka combines this great song with one of the greatest voices.
Just a little post dedicated to ayaka, who is taking a break from her singing career due to illness. Hopefully, she will get better soon, and we'll be able to hear her sing again.
A very belated happy new year to you all! I hope you guys spent nice holidays with your family and friends. :) For my part, I simply enjoyed dinners with my family and my boyfriend. I also worked almost full-time, but I am now down to having almost no hours. *blinks* I miss the days when I was required to work a minimum of 17 hours. I was guaranteed to have a paycheck at least. So, I am back to looking for a job, but it is less urgent now as I still, theoretically, have a job.
That said, I had an interview this afternoon at Forever21. It was a group interview, and let me tell you, the people there were... pretty special. I won't go into details as to how each of them were, but I didn't have a good feeling about most of them (as in, I don't think I can get along with them). It's wrong to judge based on small introductions, but first impressions do matter, and I have a hard time picturing myself working with any of them, unfortunately. Anyway, they had only 6 positions available (we were about 15 being interviewed) and considering I was probably the most boring out of all of them, I think I'll be at my current job for a while LOL.
In other news, yours truly has officially started school again yay!! \o/ Only completed one week so far, so who knows how I'll feel in a few weeks from now. But the feeling of saying 'I have class' is a good one, strangely enough. I made sure to not have any classes too early in the morning so I don't get frustrated too quick. So far, so good!
It's crazy how picky I've become with my purchases, especially clothes and accessories. While I used to buy LOTS and LOTS of pieces, these days I seem to only buy maybe 3-4 items per month? Ideally, I'd buy more, but tight tight budget doesn't allow me to do so. I just visit online shops every day and save items, admire them, and convince myself they are not worth it. It's hard. Really hard. Right now I'm back on a lingerie kick. ASOS is really good at making me want to spend over $30 on a bra (which doesn't happen, usually).
I did offer myself some gifts over the holidays however, even though I could afford them only thanks to gift money haha.
I also bought some jeans from my workplace, and they're honestly the best jeans I ever owned. But I'll have another entry on those soon enough...
U guise, I is so bored ryte now!
Did I mention I got a new job? I did. Actually I got hired a long time ago but they didn't make me start working until recently. So, I am now working at a well-known clothing store, and this is my first time doing retail sales. On my first day, I was exhausted from lack of sleep (I had slept an hour and started work at 7 AM) and disliked it a lot. I'm all for customer service and being nice to customers, but having to smile and say hi every time someone walks in, and inform them of our promotions, was not something I saw myself do everyday. At least that's what I thought. As days went by, I got used to it, and folding clothes became kinda therapeutic and helping customers and seeing them happy with their purchases made my days. So it's safe to say I kinda like my job so far! The pay could be better, but a job is a job. I'm just happy to have paychecks coming in again.
That said, today was my first day off in a while. I usually see my boyfriend on Fridays but he is currently in his exam period so he's too busy studying. I haven't seen him in a week, but I understand! I woke up at 10:45 AM and hurried to get to my shower, thinking that I was gonna be late for work. When I realized I had no work, I went back to sleep and woke up only at 5 PM and there my boredom began. What the hell did I do back when I didn't have a job?!
Boredom makes a girl shop around. Instead of doing it physically, I did it online because the weather today was too cold to handle. Also, rather than actually spending, I just lusted after some stuff. I made a list of what I'd like to get eventually.
I love the feel of this room... The brick wall (I love brick walls, painted or not), the soft lighting and the soft colours, those dear heads on the wall... Love, love it. I'm back on my home decor obsession! I think I wouldn't be able to rent an apartment by myself. Unless I become really rich in the near future, finding a suitable apartment will be near impossible with what I'd be able to pay. I'm talking under $600. :( If I can move out with my boyfriend, that'd be best. No need for two rooms (well, except maybe to use as an office), and we still get to share the rent. Perfect! Now, just gotta wait a few years...
Ugh, I feel like a whale lately... I've been gaining pounds like crazy. I tried running, but I tend to uh forget to do it everyday. :( I have to motivate myself a bit more! Also, I just got my periods so my face EXPLODED these last few days. I have pimples everywhere, I HATE IT UGH, I want to go to sleep and wake up only when everything is over. -_- But doing that will make me gain more weight. Whoopee.
