Althought you've destroyed and disowned, stronger yet I've grown. [04 Dec 2010|02:23am]
[ mood | discontent ]

Tonight I might have had the most creatively disturbing dream one could ever had. In my head was a women with a voice, strong, like Alanis was singing a song about a young woman who had ran from her past to grow up to be so much more than what life she could have. And the images were from my childhood to adulthood. My own personal dreamed music video. From being five, watching my mom get pounded down at the bathroom door, to watching the police bust in that night, with an overview of my mother holding my sister and my dad telling them "everything was fine" as they went away and I hid. To being 15 with the first time smoking week, where my friend fucked the guy we later found out had AIDS. Growing up, the constant beatings, the one resulting in the police taking us. To the girls smoking crack in the shelters bathroom as I watched their kids. To getting drunk, to wanting to fuck everyone, to not giving a fuck. To stepping up, to becoming my own. To working hard, to now, and all grown up. To trying to end the cycle of abuse. Trying to take comfort in friends. Trying to start a family, and ultimately, everyday trying to forget the past.

Laugh until we think we'll die [30 Nov 2010|01:28am]
Why is it so hard to smile sometimes? So they say Dysthymia is my curse. I thought by now I'd be able to shake it. After what... 20 years? Nobody wants to know a 'sad' person. I'm trying to be happy. I've wrapped myself up in getting this business started, cooking healthful food, finding different massage modalities to practice, reading, and gardening. I should be distracted enough to be happy, but the simplest things make me cry or feel distraught.

I try to love my husband. I really do. He is good, I swear. He cooks, cleans, works hard, pretends he's there for me, and tries his best. He reminds me of my dad and that creeps me out. Today he went out after work for a beer with some coworkers. He recently became a manager at work, so I think it's fine for him to celebrate. Yet, he didn't come home til three hours later. At least the tab was on the big guy. But still, I hope it doesn't come to me waiting all hours of the night for him to come home. I certainly wont be able to tolerate that. I should focus on the positive things. I mean, he did come home. And he made tacos for when I got out of school. Sighs...

But I have seen the same, I know the shame in your defeat. [25 Nov 2010|08:32pm]
This is what of the few places I have left that I can still talk about anything and everything that is going on in my life. Very few people know about this place, and I like that it's still open to the public. If there were no chance of anyone happening upon my little piece of privacy I would feel weird. Like I was writing to myself.

Today is Thanksgiving. We had my in-laws over to our house. It seems weird to be married and doing the whole traditional thing. I never thought this is where I would be. I'm too stubborn, demanding, and maybe a little too crazy to hold on to a relationship. It's been over 3 years now. I thought after I got married the thought of it would stop scaring the living crap out of me. Every day I wonder if I made the right choice and everyday I'm so thankful to be with a man so patient and giving. I feel guilty because we're never really in sync, but we get along. That's my default answer to anything that goes wrong. There's something about not getting sick of someone that just never happened to me before. Weird.

My life is going well. I'll graduate in about 6 months. I'm laid off from my current job... and I'm grateful for every week I don't have to go to that horrid factory. It sucks how much money can drive a person. As soon as I save enough to feel secure, I'll quit. I hope it's sooner than later.

I've been feeling intense nostalgia. I keep hearing music from when I first was discovering myself. I miss the friends, the feelings, and the excitement of a new world. I really do miss you Brian. In all of your pretentiousness, you were super funny and knew exactly how to not talk about anything. I had a very friendly love for you and I'm sorry I crossed so many lines.

Step mom [29 Sep 2008|01:43am]
So me, the boy, and his boy were walking around Zona Rosa this weekend. When we were exiting Barnes and Nobel, the little one said "You're the best step mom EVER!" Put the emphasis on step mom for a minute. Not only are those at work treating us like we're married, but now his son also is nudging in that direction. Robert even told me he didn't put him up to it. I mean, we've discussed marriage and it could work. There are some things we need to seriously discuss before it all goes down, but I think we're both ready. I'm scared, crazy scared. And then it was a shock to realize that yes, I will be caring for a dependent. I've always wanted children, and I'm grateful he's twelve, but it's still knowing that I need to meet his needs that scares me. I'm sure it'll all be okay though.

We don't care about the old folks, talking about the old style. [23 Apr 2008|09:38pm]
[ mood | sick ]

I'm so frustrated right now!! As of tomorrow, I will have been sick for two weeks. It got really bad one week ago today. At first I thought maybe it was bronchitis, and when I went to my doctor on Monday, she said I should stick it out a few more days. I went back today, though it was the other doctor, because my right ankle is swollen on the top and I can barely walk. Let me tell you, driving was fun... Anyway, he sort of dismissed that as arthritis - um, hello? seriously?-, and took some swaps and blood tests. He thinks maybe strep, but he was talking to another doctor and looking at some books with lung conditions. He wants me to see him again on Friday. Oh, oh oh, on the plus side, my fever is finally gone today. I mean it goes up a little and comes back down, but no more 100.0+! My eyes are still bloodshot and having them open for more than a few minutes hurts. Hell, most of the time I just lay in bed and wait for the day to be over. The only reason I went out today was to buy a new thermometer! I haven't gone to work yet this week. I simply don't have the energy. I'm going to see if the doctor will write me a slip to excuse me for a week or so. I don't know, if I could actually walk, I'd consider going to work. Anyway, I just needed a quick vent before working on homework. Okay, bye bye.

So many dreams I kept deep inside me. [27 Feb 2008|03:18am]
[ mood | discontent ]

Damnit, Eugene! I want to be sound asleep right now, as I need to be awake in three hours. Because of you, because of our talks, I can't. You see, I'm a healer. I can say that it helps you, and that's great. However, seeing you EVERY-SINGLE-DAY and taking your stress upon myself has starting to effect my sleep. I dream mostly in conversation. When I wake up thinking I'm talking to you, I begin to have issues.

You see, you're a great man. Wonderful... really. The fact that we can have so much chemistry is amazing! You know that it will go away as soon as my helping you is over. I can see it fading already. I was too busy thinking of all of this, as I laid in my bed. I always ruin my writing when I think too much about it. It also defeats the purpose, mostly because now I can't just get it out of my head.

I need a better way to revive myself. Maybe I should just be grateful for your friendship and stop over analyzing that I help you in the only way I know how, and stop mixing that up with having some sort of power.

And I'm sorry that I can't use your song for the title. :(

I'll be excited for a week, but then excitement starts to fade. [23 Feb 2008|01:11am]
[ mood | blah ]

Do you ever if what you do to make yourself fail is some sort of self punishment? Seriously, why do I eat an entire bag of M&Ms that I don't really want, just because they're there? And why can't I put them down? I eat them like I'm starving, just stuffing my face, almost to the point where there really is no control.

The same is with cleaning. I HATE seeing my apartment a mess. Everyday the past week, I've thought oh I'll clean this up. Okay, so it HAS been getting cleaned VERY little by little. It's actually 50% improved from the beginning of the month. Sure, it'd only take an hour or so, because most of it is paperwork and things that need to be organized. I've stopped just putting mass amounts of unorganized stuff in boxes. Everything needs a place. I really do need to buy storage space. What I'm talking about is shelves and such. I need a pantry. half of the stuff in my living room is groceries that don't fit in my kitchen! Still in bags, none-the-less.

If I wanted to succeed, then why can't I just get up and do it???

Likewise, with exercise and healthy eating. I would love to be extremely healthy. I want to ENJOY eating salads. Yes, they still make me gag. I do keep trying. I had a kiwi for the first time since early elementary last week. It was actually GOOD!

Maybe it's not self punishment. Maybe it's just slow change. I know I've always been afraid to "figure it out". I've had a fear that once you figure yourself out and have what you want, that your time on earth is done. However, I want to live until I'm 100. I shouldn't be so worried so soon. I mean, I do desire to see my grandchildren... and at the rate I'm going, that'll be in 40 years!!

Speaking of children. I received two swaddler blankets from Graco yesterday! I'm adding it to my pile of free baby stuff! :-D

Okay, I'm going to go surf the web for a while and then... maybe, I'll clean a little more. Baby steps to self improvement!

And we'll no longer memorize or rhyme. [18 Feb 2008|03:03am]
[ mood | weird ]

Remember what it was like back in the day? When all I had to worry about was
-skipping school.
-traveling halfway across the country for the mere fact that I could say that I did so.
-going to Canada, not only for cheesecake, but to walk around with the strangers pretending to be an elitist photographer.
-when my friends called me at 2am and I had to switch the lines as to not wake anyone up.
-learning how to say "I want your cock!" in German class.
-going to concerts and begging for bananas... which would eventually decay, but produce many ill effects to unsuspecting victims.
-being put in the back of a pickup truck to go down to the D with a boyfriend no one knew I had.
-getting drunk just to play ddr
-not having to think "is that just one too many piercings"?
-how about crossing over decrepit train bridges?
-celebrating Independence day by getting high at 16?
-riding the bikes out to the beach before the sunrise.
-and where the hell did those damn calm-shell pogs come from anyway?

I miss all of my fond memories. Everyday I'm getting more and more flashbacks. Just two days ago I made the recollection of the reason my back was damaged where it is was from falling down on the stairs, slamming into the edge of it. All of this from the slight action of sliding a box down other boxes.

I'm now at a place I never could have imagined five years ago. According to plan I would have still been living with my father, graduating from Delta/Northwood University with a degree of International Business/Minor in Spanish. I would never have imagined taking the road that I have. I fear that now I've grown too much. I seldom take chances or try to have fun.

I tried to day. I went to Piropos, an expensive Argentinian restaurant located not far from here. I went alone, which I haven't done in ages. I was unbearably dissonant. I sat there, in one of my many out of body experiences, still. I'm having merciless deja vu, as well. Nearly every day experiences I don't want to have are happening. I try to remain calm as I feel as if I'm losing my mind. I fear that my natural paranoia is coming alive.

3 weeks ago, I decided to get high with a coworker and her sons. We watched I am Legend, and National Treasure. It was okay then. But once the TV came on, the Deja vu started. It was the hardest I've ever been as my whole body was tingling. I asked Tres if it was laced as it certainly wasn't like getting high. He just claimed it was 'really good'. So the conversation became deja vu. EVERYTHING was repeated. I was stuck in my mind trying to convince myself that it was stories she had told me before. Flashes, back and forth, more images. I remember the room not feeling just right and I had a vision that the police were busting in and we were all going to jail. It felt so real. Less than a minute later... trust me, I was eagle eying the clock to make sure I wasn't dead... there was a knock at the back door. We all had went silent in the Oh Shit kind of way. My vision was coming true. Tony went to check it out and it was fine. I decided at that moment I needed to leave. Tony led me to 71 and I still don't know how I made it home.

I've only driven halfway high before. It was actually the first time I got high. I was one of those people who had to wait four or five times before it took effect. I am one of those people who are supposed to be addicted. I'm glad I'm not. But like I had said prior, this was not just being high. But enough of about that.

I'm listening to an audio tape about getting stuff done fast. It says you need to clear out your mind. You need to write EVERYTHING down and file it away. I've been trying to reorganize my life. Today I spent 5 hours just getting the coupons fixed. Tomorrow I shall work on the house part of it. Speaking of lists, I found my 101 list from 05. I can't believe it ends in June of '08. Do you realize how far off 3 or so years sounds when you're making a list??? Looking back, I've completed about 1/3 of it. 1/3 I wouldn't care less about completing right now, and the last 1/3 probably will be completed in the future.

Well, I'm tired. It's 330 in the morning and I need to gather my stuff for the deals tomorrow then head off to bed.

[22 May 2007|10:10pm]
I miss getting high. I haven't had any pot since August. I've moved. I don't know any stoners. I couldn't smoke if I wanted. To me, getting stoned is a sense of stability. It means I'm secure enough to know I'm not going to get tested. It means I don't need a new job. I keep getting laid off, with no unemployment. I'm making it. Working 3 weeks pays what working 4 weeks at my job for Denso paid. Of course, I miss my small town. I miss him coming over and telling me he loves me. Okay, so he didn't tell me he loved me back then, but you know, that whole feeling of being loved. I miss his arms. I miss my tiny apartment where I could see what was happening no matter where I was in that crappy studio. I miss going outside and talking to Booker, even if he didn't remember he was telling me the same thing he told me five minutes ago. It was only that he was, like, 80 years old and just sitting in that chair outside our complex looking for anyone to talk to.

I hate that I have to get drunk now. I hate hangovers. I hate when he tells me that he's going to leave and then he changes his mind. I hate that he drags me along, tells me he loves me, but never asks to be with me. I feel so stupid. It's been over two years. Two very long, difficult years. I can't explain it, I've never been in love before him. At this point I'm one of those bitter women who hate love.

Forget this, I'm going to be the bitter drunk who calls whatever guy to come fuck her.

I wonder if I have a new person living above me. He has been quite loud this past week, very abnormal. Usually I never hear foot steps, just something that resembles someones dresser falling down and all the drawers popping out and hitting the floor one by one. But I've heard steps, sinks, showers, alarm clocks, conversation, etc. It's like he's alive now. Weird.

I watched Texas Chainsaw Massacre for the first time Friday. It was the origional and I laughed most of the way through it. Is there something wrong with being incredibly critical to "horror" movies?

Today I'm doing that double date... I don't want to make the drive. He lives over 40 minutes away and then going to GR after that is another 40 minutes.

Issac is doing okay. For the most part he sleeps when I sleep and is actually being agressive toward her now. I just don't like the constant crying, especially when I'm in the kitchen. Or the not cleaning himself, which means, the poop I keep finding... smeared all over my bed.

Well, the 2nd of November was my offical two year anniversary of being in this crappy town. I admit, I have learned more than I ever wanted to about life while being here. I'm a glutton for punishment. I just signed another 6 month lease that will be done with June 1st. Honestly, I regret signing it, but I -refuse- to move in winter again. And yes, if there is snow, it's winter.

Today, well, tomorrow, well, whatever... I am getting a kitten. It's adorable and I can't wait to put pictures up. I hope s/he adjusts well. I seriously need to kitten proof this place.

On the first, this month, I had to over hear a wonderful phonecall and become nullified. Well, my choice, but still.

Oh, and I found out the deal with my checks. For some reason they were sending it to Bay City! After -two- years.... sheesh.

I do have a blind date next week. It's a double date with Paul, Heather, and Aaron. Should be different.

I'm going to haunt you every day. [31 Oct 2006|04:38pm]

Sunday I went out with Jenni to the best Haunted "house" ever! We did have to wait in line in 35 degree weather for 45 minutes before entering the primarily outdoor event, but it was worth it. You start out in a barn where they -really- creep you out. It's pitch black and of course sometimes you get a light and see some little demon guy chasing you. Well, eventually you get out and go into the haunted woods. Have you seen pet semetary? Yeah, it's just like walking down that path plus having the glowing light at the end... Anyway, we get halfway through and it's about 1/2 mile-3/4 a mile long and this guy is chasing us with a real, working chainsaw. We both tripped and went flying into the ground. So what does Mr. Chainsaw man do? Hover over us with that thing less than 2 feet away from our bodies trying to kill us. Well, turns out she twisted her ankle so we tried to stuble away. Wasn't fast enough for chainsaw man so he tried to chase us again. Eventually we got to the next station where we begged the guy to help us because Jenni went into an asthma attack along with the ankle - not cool. We were able to take a quad out of there, which was a fun little ride. I drove her home and all was well.

Today, I finally decide to call my employer and try to figure out why my direct deposit wasn't in my account. Normally I'm paid Fridays and it doesn't show up until Monday, but I need to pay rent. Oh, guess what, they decided to switch systems so I have my check mailed to me. Yay! TGF Dean sending me that check or I would have been out of luck. Probably have to get a money order on my credit card or something.

Then I'm having computer problems. For some reason, my relativly new black cartridge doesn't want to print. I tried cleaning it, shaking it, and running the test to no avail. Then, last night, I tried to watch a movie on my computer. The disc is perfect, but it'll skip. So I tried it in my other drive and lost my sound. Put it back in the other drive and no sound and skipping. Now I just have no sound. Bah!

And with my car. For some reason, people don't understand that I'm incompetitent when it comes to picture directions. Please, use words. I can't replace my windshild wipers because it looks like I have to take an object out of the wiper and replace it. Why would I break a piece off a new wiper? Bah!
