Transform

I was working all of last week and this week I'll be doing the same but tomorrow I have a day off. Sadly Nathan goes to school. However on the 28th when I get out of Target (got the job) at 5:30 I'll be changing clothes to see KISS....

KISS!!!

I think the most awesome thing that did beat the news I am about to saw is that I finally get paid every week now. I will not be without money. I take care of some things. This does keep me from wanting to go back to school incase I'm offered a permant postion at Target. Moving to Smyrna looks slim now and I'm in a pickle. I am going back to school, I want to buy books and yada yada. I wish I could keep both jobs. I wish I worked at Target at the beginning of the year. (sigh)

Need help finding your inseam or...

don't know what it is? Here's a website that I came across thanks to Yahoo Answers. I didn't know what an inseam was and I never asked my mom. I guess a little embarrassed.

Search By Inseam

I'm about to go buy khaki pants because I'm working at Target! My orientation is Sunday.

Making things better is a beauty

I really hope that after all my hard work it pays off that I can finally get things back on track. I was offered a job at Target and now I'm just waiting on the call for my orientation. Even though its a seasonal postion I really hope that I'm kept on. I really need a steady income so I can take care of myself and help Nathan. He's so good to me and the strongest man I know. I'm blessed.

Other then that I've picked up the bass yet again. I was never that good but I do have rythem. I'm taking mine to Sabrina's tonight to tune it and practice, maybe with Ramsey. Here's Ramsey's myspace page. Grand anonymous

I would like to take time to play. After so many years of saying how much I wanted one I'd like to use it.

Underaged Jason

I'm not sure what motivates young preteen boys to go out, buy Jason Mask, and go to 7 stores in the mall. Tell the cashiers that they are robbing the store and to give them money. I remember these kids to was following them around the store. I really wish I told them to take the mask off and get the hell out.

I asked mall security if there was any rules for underage children at this mall. I was told that "young children are the future of this mall" so this means it doesn't matter what age they are. I can't wait till fall break is over with for them.

Just a bit confused

I don't understand things most of the time and I feel when I say something people take it differently. However, I have no idea what I said to make a long time friend just stop being friends with me. Maybe it was a error on their part or maybe not.

I hate how things are always mixed up between sexes. It always seems like no one can be friends and with the way things look I have hardly any at all.

Hot Topic instore show Instore Show, August 2009

Hot Topic started hosting instore shows a few months ago to gain interest in not only our store but to get people to know local or not so local bands. Whenever I can I'll take pictures of these bands and some day soon they will go on our Shock Hound profile. My boss was looking threw my pictures and came across this one, I had not noticed it.

On letting go, can't keep them forever

I've been stopping by Plato's Closet to try and earn extra money. So far it's totaled up to $13 but that's all gone. I stopped by my mothers to see if there was anything else I could find. Some heels I no longer wear and some boots. I tried getting rid of some scarfs an ex-boyfriend gave me as a surprise because I love scarfs. I think that was the hardest thing to do really. You hold on to these silly memento's only to bring you back to why you no longer want them. There are still a few things I can't bring myself to get rid of but it's progress. The girl that works at Plato's did not buy the scarfs so I dropped them in the Outreach Thrift bin. This weight was lifted from my shoulders.

It used to bother me so much that I wish I could have certain memories erased, like in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. There is one I wish I could work out, like every time my sister (best friend) says she misses someone (that I dated) I get uneasy because he and I ended on very bad terms. I think of ways to tell him I'm sorry and how I wish we could work it out and be good friends for the sake of my sister. However he is across seas, starting over, who knows when he will be back. Other times I don't care to ever be friends with him ever again but that's just who I am. When someone I used to know left be high and dry I tend to hold a grudge against them for a long period of time. Did I ever mention that out of the few I dated I'm only friends with two and one is a close friend?

Why do we put up these odd walls around people that they used to know?

The saddest moments of a soap oprea ever...

I'm sitting here still in my Pink pants and tank top watching the ending to a sad episode of Young and the Restless. I'm on my period but I'm not crying to the fact that Colleen Carlton is brain dead and her heart is going to the bastard Victor Newman. Okay, now I feel the tears wanting to come. Little too late guys!

New Hair and Pretty Things

new hair Bob
new hair Bob
I need to fix the back apparently but I love how I did it. Yes, I did cut it myself, my mom taught me everything I know. She made the comment that I should think about going to cosmetology school and I replied that I will ponder on that idea.

At work my coworkers were surprised. New hair cut, new dress, new boots. I felt foxy and I had this one little sweet girl who kept looking at me and smiling from ear to ear. It was so cute. These past few days since I cut my hair has been amazing. I feel new and I think I look more my age then with the longer hair. I might keep this up for a bit. This means I might not be dreading my hair again anytime soon. I applied for a 2nd job as a temp in the mall and I hope that goes threw. All the earnings are going towards something wonderful. psshcanonrebelxticanonrebelxtipssh. I've been dreaming over a Canon Rebel for the past 5yrs. Only to hold it with a wire attached to it with a red flashing light or the one Sabrina was given.




That's the one thing that cracks me up and I find irony in it. Things I've been admiring over, wanting for so long, and then someone is simply given that item. A coworker was given a Sidekick and Sabrina was given a new camera. I however want to pay for them. I no longer want the Sidekick, I'm switching to AT&T when my contract goes out in December.




Let's stray from my life and go to something else. I'm in search of a Flapper hat or better known as Cloche hat. I found some that I simply love but I'm not to big on ordering online and their rather expensive.

Thrifting Score

In March a tornado hit my most beloved, favorite, every-time-I-go-there-I-find-something, store. Outreach Thrift. It has been closed till I guess the end of September. I drove by today to see if they were open and lo and behold they are! I turned around as fast as I could (took a few minutes because these to "oh I just worked a sweat" girls snailed across the lane. I walked in and found a pretty vintage blue dress (the "I wish I bought dress"), a vintage men's vest (the "I should have bought it to go with my striped blouse"), I came across a cute black and white plaided blouse ("fit just right everywhere but the lower front" kind of blouse), the fitted lumber jack jacket (the "fitted lumber jack jacket to go with that striped blouse"), and the most amazing vintage boots ever! That fit my ridiculous feet odd sized! In red! AH!


Here's the line up from my Dressing Room Diary.





I love the detail of the dress
I'm a little busty, size unknown, $2.50

Best gray and blue pin strip top ever
Old Navy, XL, $2.50


Vintage men's vest, I believe $3.00, Medium


Cute plaid blouse, $3.50


I was able to put this on hold, Medium, $3.50

FTW, $6.00, 9 1/2 or a 10




I love thrifting...





A Fat Rant.

This makes me feel more happier with myself. It's awesome how one person you don't know can make you feel confident.

London

Happy October!

There is just something about getting out and enjoying the vibes of a thrift store and knowing that most of the things you buy are going to something wonderful, and its also considered going green. Just found that out from a nice lady yesterday. My favorite places to go are Phase II, All Things Possible Bargain Center, Outreach Thrift, and Goodwill in Smyrna. On that note I found this amazing coat, London Fog. I thought it was funny because I had just watched an episode of Mad Men.

London Fog Jacket, All Things Possible Bargain Center

Sadly I only have $8 in my bank account and this jacket is I believe $24 (it is also too tight if you couldn't tell but still!). If you are in the Middle Tennessee/ Murfreesboro area the Bargain Center gives a 10% discount for MTSU student's when you show them your student idea. Also, this reminds me, the store I work at [Hot Topic] gives anyone who is, was, or children and spouse's in the Service 10% discounts (with proper idea). You can also receive a 15% off card, anyone can with a purchases of $10 or more. Fill up with ten stamps and recieve the discount with your next purchase. I love handing them to people, feel the savings.


In my craft corner, which is really on the couch and living room area I'm crocheting this...







Its weird looking! That's what I get for doing this at odd hours of the night. I don't have enough of the two different kinds of yarn. I picked up a bag of yarn at a yard sale for $3 dollars, it was really meant for my mom but she didn't really want them. So... I got crafty with yarn again. I wanted to make a scarf but this isn't happening so I got the idea to make this;

Look Eric Singer!

I've also started another project, a small painting for a friend. I did the "first 5 to comment, receives a free gift" on my Facebook. Anyway, I'm going to enjoy the sun!

---edit----

I forgot to mention! I went to Plato's Closet to try to sell a few tops that I have. Three fashion tops and a few novelty T's. A sold a Forever 21 spring strapless top for $3. That's about what I paid for it on clearance. I have two vintage like novelty T's that I thought were going to be bought be the girl said they looked too used. Oh well, I'm still going to try and sell them though. I'm going to start going threw my closet at my moms of things I haven't worn since high school. See if I can sell them or something.
