:::::word of the day:::::

I figured if no one else was going to make my day better, I can just do it myself..

coruscate: to emit vivid flashes of light; sparkle; scintillate; gleam

this is going to be my motto for a while.
hope you all have a wonderful thursday!

let me just say...

...that today has been somewhat of a stressful day.

However! I did go on a run this morning before work, so kudos to me for actually doing something productive. Sorry I did not post the playlist last night, my roommates and I ended up having roommate night and catching up on our favorite TV shows (our DVR is getting a bit full)
Here is what I trashed my brain watching last night:
(its Mad Men) photo credit

It's T-SHIRT TIME!!!!!!  photo credit


**cue my abnormal curiosity for serial killers**  photo credit


that's right folks, I have an unhealthy obsession with cover singing "teenagers"
i'm not hatin' though...they freakin rock.

free your mind, and the rest will follow

in an effort to make this monday go by just a little bit faster, i have decided that blogging would be a good way to go about it. i have had many many many thoughts going through my head lately (especially since all I have been doing for the past few days is watching sex and the city-my roommate has EVERY season on DVD) and i want to get some of out of my head and into the cyber world.  so, first things first, i am stuck in a rut.  i feel the need to do all of these things and be creative and so many other things that the mere thought of starting one of them scares me.  for instance, i want to run another 5k, but every time i set my alarm to get up early and go run before work, i hit the snooze button.  simple as that. i would clearly rather sleep than satisfy my goal. GRR.  

secondly, i am officially on the market again.  so, let us just be honest- if that in itself would not put you in a rut, then you are officially someone that i need a motivational speech from.  and it is not that i do not enjoy being fully responsible for myself and ONLY myself, it can just be a little tacking on someone like me.  when i get into situations like these, i tend to self-destruct.  not in a physical way, just emotionally.  i begin to think of myself as the source of all of my problems, blame myself for things that i clearly could not control, and start to tell myself that i will never get what i deserve, only what i can obtain.  in a nutshell, i just become this huge ball of negativity.  that, my friends, is not who i am.  just ask anyone that i know, they will tell you that i tend to look for the good in every situation and in people, but for some reason, that is just not me right now.  another negative thing (see, what did i tell you) about me right now is that there is no constant flow of attention from anyone.  i will admit it, i am an attention whore, i guess that is where my dog gets it from.  well, the combination of that and everything else is putting me in this rut and causing me to stay there. maybe i should just go throw a pity party for myself.

thirdly, i need to go shopping.  anytime that i am having a bad day, picking up something for myself usually helps me get through whatever situation i am going through.  now i am not talking about going and spending my entire paycheck at the mall or where ever (although it has crossed my mind), just a cd or a new book or a scarf or something.  have you ever seen the movie confessions of a shopaholic?  well i have seen the movie and read the entire book series.  rebecca (the main character) never really needs anything that she buys, but the thought of the register dinging when it opens, or the sound of the printer slicing the paper and the girl at the register hands you your receipt, or the smell of clothes that came right out of the store, its a high.  it is something that no other feeling in the world can satisfy other than the actual art of purchasing something.  now, i know what you are thinking:  who is this girl? why is she obsessing about shopping and receipt paper?  because my friend, its a high, one that can only be satisfied by making the money in my wallet dwindle away slowly but surely, but sure does make you feel so much better.  shopping is to my mood what  bella is to edward.


now then. there is a positive side to all of this negativity:  i have downloaded some really great music.  music is also something that i have an insatiable desire for.  i can never have enough of it and i can get lost for hours just looking for it, listening to it, and playing it.  the playlist that i have created over the past two weeks is ridiculously long, and unfortunately i left it at home, so i can not post it right now, but while i am watching carrie, samantha, charolette, and miranda later, i will post it, along with some of the pictures of my own that i finally got around to editing.  

and last, but certainly not least, i have found a new daily something that keeps my mind stimulated:'s word of the day
that is correct, folks, i read the dictionary.  well, ok i do not really READ the dictionary, but one word is sent to me daily via text that i have never seen/ heard of/ know how to pronounce.  lately, the words that have been sent to me are amazing, maybe even psychic, seeing as today's word was:
nepenthe:(n) a drug or drink having the power to bring forgetfulness of sorrow or trouble.
anyone else find that creepy? its like a freakin' fortune cookie! amazing! 

ok, so what have we learned today? i am addicted to shopping and music, and i am a nerd who has words from the dictionary sent to my phone daily.  please don't tell anyone.

don't worry....

...its coming.  I got a little side tracked yesterday and wasn't able to post anything, but it will happen today!  I watched an entire season of Entourage ( I'm addicted to that show) yesterday AND my roommates and I started p90x.  I don't actually feel that bad, but i'm sure I will tomorrow.  I did a lot of this this weekend:

I've been trying to figure out what to do with myself lately...and i have finally decided that I want to do anything that is right for me.  I want to be the change in myself that i have frantically been searching for.  I want to start with cutting my hair.  then I want to move on to something else.  Get my priorities in line.  do something for myself for a change.  start doing the things that i love and not worry about what anyone else is doing.  I am ready for that.  I am ready for things to start going my way.  i also want to start preparing myself for something new and exciting.  something that the people in my life aren't ready for, but I am.  wow.  I feel all empowered and stuff :) and now that its out there in cyberland and not just in my head, i have to accomplish it.  if not just for myself, then for the people that read this.  now that i have involved others, well, i just gotta do it.  so, with that said, the-well i hope it will be daily, but it will most likely be weekly or bi-weekly- feature that I have planned will begin later this evening when i'm at home and not wasting my boss's internet.  so, for now, enjoy these lovely pictures that inspired me this morning before anyone else was in the office, which i got from weheartit and have a lovely Tuesday! :)

love her :)

i miss my nephew very much.  this is a picture of him that I stole from my brother-in-law's facebook page.  tonight! i'm going to a bachelorette party for a friend of mine from high school and my other friend is in town from Colorado.

anyway, I was reading my blogs, and vol. 25's always puts a smile on my face.  I love her blog.  She is always so inspirational and creative and she always uses her family in all of her photoshoots.  here is a sneak peak of her blog for today...lemonade stand:

confessions of a lonely heart...

     So, i'm sitting at my house by myself (drinking a wonderful margarita) and I have some things on my mind that I need to get out.  whenever I get upset ( and i have been doing that a lot lately) i turn to music.  Have you ever heard that song "this is why i'm hot" by M.I.M.S?  well his name means "music is my savior" and i feel the exact same way.  There is NOTHING in this world that can make me feel better than music.  what people sing comes from their heart- well for the most part- and if you truly love music, then you can feel it when you hear it.  Lately, I have been going old school, downloading things like Mos Def, Nas, Lil' wayne, **bob marley** and some eminem.  Well, the eminem is his new album "recovery" and I have to say, i love it! he is so sexy with brown hair...thank god he doesn't have that AWFUL bleach blonde anymore :)

anyway, the song that I have been connecting with lately is the song with 
Rhianna, "love the way you lie" 
Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

I can't tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now there's a steel knife
In my windpipe
I can't breathe
But I still fight
While I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right
It's like I'm in flight
High of a love
Drunk from the hate
It's like I'm huffing paint
And I love it the more that I suffer
I sufficate
And right before im about to drown
She resuscitates me
She fucking hates me
And I love it
Where you going
I'm leaving you
No you ain't
Come back
We're running right back
Here we go again
It's so insane
Cause when it's going good
It's going great
I'm Superman
With the wind in his bag
She's Lois Lane
But when it's bad
It's awful
I feel so ashamed
I snap
Who's that dude
I don't even know his name
I laid hands on her
I'll never stoop so low again
I guess I don't know my own strength

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

You ever love somebody so much
You can barely breathe
When you're with them
You meet
And neither one of you
Even know what hit 'em
Got that warm fuzzy feeling
Yeah them chills
Used to get 'em
Now you're getting fucking sick
Of looking at 'em
You swore you've never hit 'em
Never do nothing to hurt 'em
Now you're in each other's face
Spewing venom
And these words
When you spit 'em
You push
Pull each other's hair
Scratch, claw, bit 'em
Throw 'em down
Pin 'em
So lost in the moments
When you're in 'em
It's the rage that took over
It controls you both
So they say it's best
To go your separate ways
Guess that they don't know ya
Cause today
That was yesterday
Yesterday is over
It's a different day
Sound like broken records
Playin' over
But you promised her
Next time you'll show restraint
You don't get another chance
Life is no Nintendo game
But you lied again
Now you get to watch her leave
Out the window
Guess that's why they call it window pane

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

Now I know we said things
Did things
That we didn't mean
And we fall back
Into the same patterns
Same routine
But your temper's just as bad
As mine is
You're the same as me
But when it comes to love
You're just as blinded
Baby please come back
It wasn't you
Baby it was me
Maybe our relationship
Isn't as crazy as it seems
Maybe that's what happens
When a tornado meets a volcano
All I know is
I love you too much
To walk away though
Come inside
Pick up your bags off the sidewalk
Don't you hear sincerity
In my voice when I talk
Told you this is my fault
Look me in the eyeball
Next time I'm pissed
I'll aim my fist
At the dry wall
Next time
There will be no next time
I apologize
Even though I know it's lies
I'm tired of the games
I just want her back
I know I'm a liar
If she ever tries to fucking leave again
I'mma tie her to the bed
And set the house on fire

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

yeah, being single is not my favorite thing in the world, but I'm dealing quite well.  as long as i have my music, I think i'll be ok
by the way, I just found this band called Bitter:sweet and I absolutely LOVE them! 2 favs: "Don't Forget to Breathe" and "The Mating Game" <- also the title of the album.

love love. xoTW

rainy days...

∫₀ѵℓ this picture :)

unfortunately, its about to rain AGAIN here in south louisiana and I just needed to see something to show me that rain doesn't have to be a bad thing, sometimes it can be inspirational.  When I get home later (seeing as i'm at work right now) I will post some more rain pictures that I took the other day.  These are from weheartit and yes, I discovered weheartit from my friend michelle- whom, speaking of, I need to do the tag post that she put me in.  I will do all of these things when I get home.  I need to catch up on posting, I haven't in a while and I feel like i need to get some stuff of my chest.

See you soon. have a pleasant rainy day :)

Just wanted to share these with you.. Enjoy!

I love old cars...

And here is one more...get ready:

If you can't tell, it's a BP gas station with all of the signs ripped off. Smart business move if you ask me, considering the gas station we were at had a line to get gas and that one was EMPTY! yay everyone for boycotting BP!!!!! yay!

The seasons have changed...

...and so have I. Bonnaroo was one of the most AMAZING experiences of my life and now it is officially over. I have officially earned my keep in this community. I will talk more about it when I'm not completely sleep deprived but there is so much to share that Im pretty sure you will get bored just reading. We are listening to Regina Spektor right now and my eyes are slowly shutting (she was a great artist to see live-btw) here are some pictures I just took with my phone in the car driving back to the realm of society (boo)

Our hula-hoops. My new favorite picture! Off to nap my eyelids are heavy :)

Almost to Bonnaroo!

We have been in the car for 6.5 hours but we are less than a mile away now!!! I can't wAit! This should be epic. Be back later for some updates.
Love love

rain rain...go away

Not only is the weather terrible today, I've just had like one of the worst weeks ever...probably like in the history of mankind. I had a great time at my brother's wedding this weekend, and then I get back home and Tuesday was just like the worst day ever..and it has progressively gotten worse since then. For once in my life (I can't believe I'm saying this), I can't wait until Monday..a fresh start and a new week...that's 2 days long and then OFF TO BONNAROO!!!!!!!!! Hooray!

anyway, I have some pictures of my trip to and my brother, the wedding party, the sights, that I would like to share, so here they are..enjoy!

My brother and I dancing our special dance to "Our Song" by Taylor Swift. (awww)

the wedding party

there is something about this place that is just majestic.  I can't wait to go back there VERY SOON!

anyway, I just wanted to share that we found out yesterday that my grandfather has pancreatic and liver cancer and he only has about 4-5 months.  He is ok with it, he is ready to go and be with my grandmother, but its just tough, ya know? 2 grandparents in one year...and I'm at a point in my life that I realize what is going on and that he won't be here to see me get married or see his great grandchildren or stuff like that.  But his vessel has expired and its time to move on to the next best thing (i guess).  I will enjoy the time that I have left with him, and I am going to go see him on saturday and bring him some Seafood Gumbo from Piccadilly (that is where we go on our dates :]), hang out and talk about life, like we normally do, but it will be more bittersweet this time.  I can't wait to see him though..
alright well that's all for now, need to "get to work"
