I know, you know~

Hey there, Internet world, hey!

I really can't think of a good way to start this post. It's just at that point where I'm like, "Remember me? I used to blog around here." ......It's terrible.

I think I'll just give you the scoop on my life. 

I have been working two jobs for the last year and a half or so. *Insert deep sigh here* And lately it's been pretty overwhelming and taking over my life. *Insert maniacal laughter here* A six day work week is rubbish, just so you know, and it pretty much explains my overall lack of blogging and commenting.
I didn't feel like using my precious, precious time blogging, okay? It's mine. My own! My love! My Precious!

About two weeks ago, my florist job offered to train me to be a designer, (which means I get to make pretty stuff:) and my position there will become full time.

After some freaking out...

...I took the offer and gave my notice at my other job. So at the end of this month (is that really just two more days away?) I'll be comfortably working one job and have some 'me time' back in my life.

This should also mean my blogging will be better again. Normal work weeks allow time for creativity. If I remember correctly.

So yay for normality, right? Knuckle bump!
(This whole gif-making thing is pretty fun!)

Other stuff in my life. 

More sunset pictures. Cause I love them.

And a Starbucks picture. With not-my-name on the cup. Cause I accidentally stole that drink.
Not really.

Treskie and I went out for Starbucks on evening last week.
We ordered. I got a mocha, because it's my favorite, and she got a java chip, because that's her favorite.
It was a bit crowded and busy and I just wanted to get my drink and go. So the guy behind the counter mutters a name, puts down two drinks that look like a mocha and a java chip...
And I was just so excited!
I grabbed them, thanked him kindly and booked it for the door. 
It wasn't until I was halfway to the car that I wrapped my lips around the straw and took a deep pull at the drink in my hands that I realized...it wasn't mine. This particular drink was a salted caramel. Treskie's was cookie crumble...
And the name wasn't 'Amanda' like I presumed when I originally caught sight of the beginning letter "A". It was Alandra.

But it wasn't like I could really give it back, now could I? So it became mine. 

heI felt really guilty, knowing that some poor people watched as I grabbed their drinks and left. And I couldn't stop laughing. And Blushing.
Aaah, good times!

I finished season 8 of Psych! 

It was so good! I loved it. I even loved the finale. I usually don't like the end of TV shows. They make me sad. And even though I cried over the ending, (true story) it didn't feel the end as much as it did a new beginning. Listen to me getting all meechy over here! Over Psych! I'm fairly sure that's a sign that I'm loosing my mind even faster than I've previously thought.
Oh well.
You should watch it. Tell me if you cry. Let's see how far I've really gone

I took a BBC Sherlock personality test and became John Watson.

"You are John Watson. Let’s be honest, pretty much everyone loves you. Warm, patient and personable, you’re willing to put up with a great deal (possibly too much?) from those you care about and you are intractably loyal. You’re a bit of a thrill seeker and frequently rush headlong into danger, especially if it’s to protect someone important to you. You have a stubborn streak and maybe a possible psychosomatic injury or two, but you’re definitely the person all your friends want on their side in a fight."

That made me really happy. I'm not sure that's entirely accurate. I'm willing to bet John Watson wouldn't cry over Psych.

If you want to take the test, go here!

So, yeah.  Life's been pretty good for me the last two weeks or so. And the first week in August I get to head out of town for a visit with by bestest friend for a week! I am so excited!

God Bless,

Song of the Week~

What's up, People! Hey look it's been...almost less than a week since my last post.

Okay, fine. It's been a week. But that's not too bad, right? *Points gun meaningfully* Right?

I feel the need to ramble a bit. Deal.

I wish I owned a camera. I should just buy one. But that's probably not going to happen all that soon. Because I have nerve issues with spending money. Even my own. *Shurgs*

It keeps looking like it's going to rain. And I get all excited and sit there waiting hopefully. Then the sun wins out and the clouds slide off to do their thing elsewhere.
I'm a sun-lover. But some rain to wash away all the pollen would be great.

I finally got around to planting flowers in my yard. I feel very accomplished.

I am hoping to do some yard work after my other work tomorrow. Go me.

After this post I'm going to go eat some sherbet-ish ice cream-ish stuff that I made. And maybe watch psych. Cause I bought season EIGHT!
Amazon knows me so well. It sent me an email telling me that psych was 70% percent off. 70%!!! And it's mine now.

Alright. I listened to this song for years and spent all that time thinking it was called, Last first kiss. But it's not. It's called Inevitable. I'm still not sure why.
The first time I heard it was when my friend showed me a BBC Robin Hood music video to it. I sort of fell in love with it. Even though I've never watched the BBC Robin Hood. (Should I? It looks great but I think it might break me heart. What do you all think?)
I tried to find the same video, but since that was years ago, it doesn't seem to exist anymore.
So here's a lyric video instead.

Amazing how life turns out the way that it does
We end up hurting the worst, the only ones we really love

I want to break every clock
The hands of time could never move again
We could stay in this moment for the rest of our lives
Is it over now, hey, hey, is it over now?

I want to be your last first kiss that you'll ever have
I want to be your last first kiss

Those lyrics! Love them. :) 

See you later and all that. Remember that sherbet-ish ice cream-ish stuff I made? I'm gonna go eat it now. 

God Bless!

From the darkness, something emerges!

Hello, Peoples!

*Blows a thick layer of dust off the keyboard.* 

It's so nice of you to drop by and visit me. I've been a jolly awful host lately. *Sweeps a pile of rubbish under the rug and sheepishly straightens up the blog.*

The story of my life....I work all daaay...I work all week ...and only rest on Sunday. 

(I totally just sang that.)

So yes. I've been working an insane amount of hours lately--Like for the past three months. And I'm totally burnt out.


Physically and mentally.

Hence me going all A.W.O.L on you. My creative juice dried up faster than a puddle in the sun. I'm just twiddling my thumbs over here, waiting for some rain.

Still, I don't want to completely abandon my blog and I decided to slap out a quick post before I crash on the couch and nap. ;) *Pats self on back*

I'm prioritizing.

So what's new with me? Almost nothing. And that's a fact.

I've honestly been too busy to have anything remotely interesting happen. I'm still sitting here going, "When did it become July? Why am I still not tan?"

So I'm going to just sum up my life in a few pictures. The slightly less sub-par moments are always captured on camera. Unlike the really awesome moments. Like Christmas or birthdays. In which case I'm usually having way to much fun to take any photos.

I drew that.

One of the best ways for me to unwind after work is to spend my evening sitting by the lake. Sunsets are the most soothing things ever! They make me feel so peaceful inside. 

I live here, you guys!

The sum total of my 4th pictures. 

My sisters and I took a picnic to the lake. A different lake than the above lake. It was glorious. We ate. We swam. We did our ancestors proud!

Today is Monday.  I totally didn't feel like going to work. I felt like getting coffee and muffins and reading. But I knew that wasn't going to happen. So off I went, bleary eyes and all. And Monday oozed ever so slowly by. 
And then, something celestial happened. My freakin' awesome sister brought me a FRAPACCINO!  I can't even express how much better that made today. 

One word. Caffeine. 

My day was so much better after that.

I feel pretty good about myself! I blogged. Go me. 

See you later. 

God Bless
