If I could write a letter to me,

I often wonder how my life would have turned out if I made different choices. If I had worked at a different store when I was 16, if I had actually saved money for my own car when I was 18, if I had taken the chances I was too afraid to take. Unfortunately time travel is not a real form of transportation, as much as I wish it was. So, I am living the life I have, and dealing the decisions I have made. If I could write a letter to me, this is what I would like to say to myself.

Dear me,

It’s future you. I know, it’s crazy, but just hear me out. I have to tell you a few things; things you’re going to want to know now instead of later.

First things first, spend more time having fun with your family instead of fighting all of the time. It is not worth it, however important it feels in the moment, I promise you, it wont matter in the future. Remember that mom and dad are getting older as you get older, so don’t take them for granted.

Keep focused with school! The world doesn’t care about you if you don’t have your degree. It’s boring, and it’s hard, and algebra sucks, but do it anyways. One day you’re going to be happy that you were home schooled. It honestly pays off, trust me.

Don’t listen to the mean girls. One day you’re going to find people who accept you, and love you for who you are. They’ll even find your bad jokes funny! Hard to believe, but it’s the truth. It will hurt for a little while, but the sooner you realize that people are going to come in and out of your life the easier it will be. Some people are not meant to be around forever, so appreciate them while they are. Learn what you can from the situation, and try to use it to your advantage in the future.

Please stop trusting that people always have your back; because they don’t. YOU NEED TO PROTECT YOURSELF!  People are always looking out for themselves, and they will trample you if necessary to get what they want.  Stop believing all of their empty promises, and kick ass to get what you want. Take responsibility for not getting what you want, because at the end of the day, nobody cares. It’s harsh, but it’s reality.

You do not need a boyfriend to feel good about yourself.  I am still finding this out, but maybe this will give you head start. Just because other girls your age have boyfriends, it does not mean you also need to have one. I mean just look at all the problems it will cause them… You are beautiful, and you don’t need a boy to tell you that.

Remember to be happy. Find the little things that make you smile, and hold them close to your heart. It is easy to focus on all of the things that are going wrong. Instead try to remember that everything happens for a reason, as cheesy as that may be; I’ve found it to be true for the most part. There are a few things that I cannot make sense of, but I am sure that I will one day.

I cannot wait until you get to see the things I have so far in life. There are a lot of really great things mixed in with the bad. Remember that through all of the trials of life, you are becoming a stronger person in spite of it. Keep your head up, and try not to let all of those thoughts in your head control you.

Love, Me.

New Year Resolutions

So, it’s been a while…

I know, it’s been forever and a day since I have written anything, and I apologize.
I just haven’t had anything to say…
Plus, I work about 50+ hours a week.
Working both jobs has been stressful, but I like keeping busy.
I hated the days of just going home and doing nothing.

It’s nice going from one place to the next, but I also really like the days where I don’t have to set an alarm!
Which rarely happens anymore.
The worst is setting an alarm for 3:45am, every. single. Tuesday.

I try to just remind myself that it’s all temporary.
This is not what I am going to be doing for the rest of my life.
Although some days are harder than others to say that to myself.

Things with my parents are better,
but mostly because I’m never home to fight.
It’s nice though, going home and just talking with my parents
rather than yelling.

This Friday I have two different parties to go to:
1. the office Christmas party
2. Ugly Christmas Sweater party at my friends house

I gotta say, I am looking forward to the ugly sweater party a bit more…
Mostly because I plan to drink, and drink, and drink…
But I have to work the next day at the office, and then right after that is my dad’s side of the family
Christmas party, and I have to make sure I am not still hung over for that.
We shall see how that plays out.

I still have so much Christmas shopping to do!
I have no idea what to get my dad or my brother.
I already have everything for my mom and sisters, even my aunt, and grandparents…
But I always get stuck on the men in my family.

Ugh, I love, but hate Christmas…
ahh who am I kidding?! I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!

So, it’s been a while…

Friday, October 3rd 2014

So, I know that it has been a while since I have posted, and now that I think about I really should just set up a que…

Anyways, tonight I am going out with a bunch of my friends to celebrate my 21st birthday!
Of course, here in the Chicago land area, it’s cold and windy, and just dreary. Typical.
I’m here at the office, just chilling, drinking coffee, and waiting until 5 o’clock, so I can leave, go home, clean the kitchen, clean the bathrooms, and then I can actually start getting ready to go out. I showered earlier, so I at least have nice clean hair, but I have to shave because I decided to actually get up out of bed at the last minute, so I decided to wait until later to shave. That, and now my legs will be silky smooth a little longer. I want to curl my hair, because tonight is a special night, and I always have my hair straight, I just really don’t want to put in all that effort ya know?!

I just need a monster or something because I am super tired…

OK, well I will try to take a lot of pictures tonight, but I’ll be BLASTED. so I don’t know how many I will actually take… yikes

Online Shopping is Dangerous…

So sitting here at the office is dangerous. I have found that I also have a weakness for online shopping. This is NOT good. I am finally fed up with my android piece-o-shit so I finally got an iPhone that I have been wanting for the LONGEST time. Then I just had to get the two princess cases, because I mean, I need a case, so why not have them be of my favorite disney princess? Also I made a wishlist and I have a Rainbow Brite case on there that I had to stop myself from buying so I am saving that for later on. And the dresses, well they are perfect for work, since I am going to be spending a lot more time here, which is a good thing by the way. Plus, for the both of them, on a site I found through facebook, are super cute, AND super cheap. Then of course I ordered myself Chinese food for lunch because I was absolutely starving!! Alright, I have to get some things done before leaving the office for the day. Oh and hey, I turn 21 in two days ya’ll!!! WHOOP WHOOP!!
