Year In Review: 2005

Sorry I haven't written in here for a while. Winter vacation is very boring and I'm ancy.

I suppose I should write a little something just round the year off.

So, here's my year in review.

* Started the year in a relationship and ending it in a relationship... just not with the same guy.

* Learned who my true friends are and I want to thank them for standing behind me 100 percent!

* Turned 24... I got screwed over by a friend who said he'd be there and by the PF Changs people. Oh well. Had fun getting drunk and NOT having to drive my own drunk ass home.

* Dated people I probably shouldn't have dated in the first place. You know... the ones that were too young (Justin), too freaky for words (Ben), like to make excuses to have their cherry popped (I think his name was Brian... yeah... don't care), etc.

* Went to the Philippines for a whole month and learned not to assume anything.

*Decided not to go to law school. Sure, this may seem indecisive on my part, but in reality during my year off from everything, I thought about it and decided I want to go to nursing school instead.

* A couple of my friends got married this year and made me wonder if I'll ever get that chance. But I did meet some new people in the process.

* My cousin turned 21. I totally missed what happened at the Flying Saucer because of a stupid ass who needed to be picked up from the airport.

* Went back to school. Yeah... that was fun.

* Met a totally awesome guy. We may have had our ups and downs, but we're still hanging on.

* Malibu sucks... period!! He just drives me nuts like no other. Anything to get my attention, right?

* Learned to knit. Hey... it's actually fun and the only resolution I've kept this year.

Anyway... I guess that's it. More updates later.

The Crazies and the Cure

Current Mood: Sane
Currently Watching: TransGeneration

So, I'm sitting in my patio watching television... in the middle of winter.

You think that's crazy? You haven't seen crazy until you've lived my week.

My week has just been... well, crazy.

First off, I'm not even sure if I'm in a relationship anymore or not, to tell you the truth. I haven't spoken to BF since drama blew up in his face (NOTE: I didn't say I was in any part of that drama... and NO I will not say anymore about it). He won't talk to me and all the stuff guys do when they're upset. So... I'm just backing off to deal with MY own drama.

Yes, I did have some minor drama this week and it's all because of the BF drama and finals. Near had a breakdown... and no one around to help me out (EXCEPT one friend, thankyouverymuch). I guess that's what no sleep and caffine pills/drinks will do to you.

The week after one day of finals (yes... only Monday) was just a crying blur. I don't think I've ever cried so much in my life since my Grandmother's death almost 2 years ago. I don't know why I was crying, but it was just crazy.

But all that is cured (temporarily) by RETAIL THERAPY.

Nothing big... just the little things (which I'll post pics of later).

Just a short list:

1. Post Secret book. It's related to the Post Secret website. Pretty cool actually.
2. One of those squined purses. I swore I never would buy one, but never say never.
3. Some jewelry. Real cute actually.
4. Mariah Carey's new CD. Pretty good stuff.

Well, I guess that's it for right now.

Ciao. Stay fabulous.

Random Past Blog

Current Mood: Undecided
Current Music: Last Christmas by Wham!

It's kinda funny how much of the past you remember. I don't know why, but I remember what happened exactly a year ago.

Derek (while he was still living here) had called me up and bugged me to go out even though I was barely getting over a cold. Through some badgering, I caved in because I thought he was moving away to Alabama.

We had dinner, even though I knew I would probably throw it all back up by the end of the night. Ran into a couple of Nolan kiddos (yeah, I know!! I always run into someone from high school) and looked at me like I've changed somehow (Duh... it's the boobs, Anastacia!! -- Derek). Oh well, I guess I'll never know what was going on in Patrick Grant's head.

We headed to the Library. You know shit goes down in there when you get me and Derek together. With that said, I'm giving you a mini pictoral.

Derek's happy, drunk ass at the Library. He really likes his L.I.T.

Derek being a bad influence on me with the drinking and smoking. I still love my little poodle!! LOL.

Image Hosted by
At this point, I was on meds, vivarin, Red Bull and God Knows What!! Probably drunk calling my then-boyfriend, Matt the RL Model.

Image Hosted by
Somehow, I managed to smoke a few cigs (this was before I quit officially, thankyouverymuch). I look angry. I'm guessing its because Matt wasn't answering his phone. Drunk calling is fun, isn't it?

What's a night out with Derek without going to City Streets to drink our asses off some more and sing 80s classics?

Image Hosted by
Derek's happy ass. I love that boy.

Image Hosted by
My happy medicated ass. My teeth are kinda blinding, don't you think? Yeah... this is all I could muster up after taking everything just to be awake/not sick.

Image Hosted by
Again with the drinking and the smoking. Hey, sometimes a girl needs some liquid courage to get up on stage to sing a raspy version of Like a Virgin.

Image Hosted by
Even though it was probably one of the best and worst (feeling) nights in my life, I still manage to hug Derek at Last Call... because I can. LOL. Probably one of the best pics of the series.

A year has past. Derek didn't end up moving the Alabama, but Waco instead. I didn't go to law school like I have planned and ended up going to nursing school. Even the 3 hour distance didn't stop our friendship even though we don't talk as often as we like or visit each other like we should.

Thanks for reminising in my past with me.

Stay fabulous.

Baby, It's Cold Outside Part Deux

First off, I just want to say to those people who still believe that in Texas we all ride horses everywhere and it doesn't get below 50 degrees, screw you (and I do mean that in the nicest way possible)!!

It does get cold... it does snow... and we get a couple of days off because of it. Hee hee.

Anyway, so yeah... it's cold. I'm just glad I'm finished with all my lab exams; so I didn't have to go in today. Got to sleep in and enjoy the most of my day while walking around the house in a tee, shorts and uggs.

At least my skin isn't as bad as past winters. I just bought some stuff from Bath and Body Works called Body Balm that's supposed to soften your skin. What I didn't know is that it also prevents chapping. Best 28 bucks I ever spent.

Lab exams aren't too bad. Lecture should be easier though.

Here's where my life get's kinda boring:

I was watching old episodes of America's Next Top Model on VH1. I kinda miss Janice Dickson on the show. She was like the fake boobied female version of Simon Cowell, cruel but funny. Twiggy this season isn't really funny and says the same thing all the time. I'm probably the only one who cares, but eh, I don't care.

Well, I guess that's it.

For those who have finals, GOOD LUCK!!

Stay fabulous.

Dead/Finals Week

Well... here it is: the home stretch. The last chance of making a decent grade in either science.

Tomorrow is just the tip of the iceberg. I have 2 lab exams/practicals.


Again, I'm studying more on anatomy because there is so much more to learn in there than micro. At least I got most of the muscles down.

Thank yous to those who made it easier on my to learn this stuff:

-- the flash card people
-- the makers of viviran and monster energy drinks
-- to my micro lab teach for setting out questions #75-100

This past weekend was a quiet, yet productive/destructive one.

Woke up with a smile on my face on Saturday when the BF texted Miss You on my cell.

I was just kinda lazy throughout the day, looking over my notes every once in a while.

Then I realized that the bulk trash was coming by Monday; so I had to clean out a set of drawers and my bed (which had drawers underneath to hide secret addictions and such).

This is when the destructive part comes in. Instead of moving the whole bed out of my room (which isn't an easy task), dad said to just destroy it. So... that's what mom and I did. We pryed, smashed, and hammered that bed into pieces.

Yep... carrying pieces out was a heck of a lot easier than trying to carry out the whole thing.

So now... I'm sleeping on the mattress on the floor (which isn't too bad) until this next weekend when I get my new bed from Ikea.

Hopefully, the BF and I can *finally* spend some quiet time before my finals. I just get so stressed, ya know.

Speaking of stress, Malibu (yeah, that's his pic) is stressing me out. He wants to meet up this coming Saturday to exchange gifts. The thing is I can't meet him on Saturday (because of previous engagements) nor do I want to leave his gift in the middle of a park. Since I'm tired of being the one who caves in, I stood my ground and said, "Yeah... I don't think so."

What does he do? He deletes me from his myspace friends list.

Yeah... he's a true friend, alright.

*Rolls Eyes*

I hate fighting with him, but I got things to do and refuse to change my plans to make him feel better. He's not my boyfriend (and if he were, I still wouldn't cave in).

For once, I'd like him to meet on my terms... not his. I'm the one who goes to Weatherford to visit... I'm the one who drives everywhere.

What does he do? NOT A DAMN THING!!!

I'm just getting sick of it. It's really ridiculous.

Anyway... enough ranting, more studying.

Stay fabulous.

Quick Post

Current Music: Screwed by Paris Hilton

Just wanted to do a quick post... nothing spectacular.

Did some shopping after taking my make up test. Didn't get anything spectacular... I got the Mr. and Mrs. Smith DVD. It was awesome!!

I also got some flash cards for my next anatomy lab exam (which is next Tuesday)... blah.

Kiss and made up with BF. My drama and his drama don't mesh well right now. Can't see him this weekend (sad, I know), but it's probably for the best since I do have 2 lab exams Tuesday and need to study. I miss him. Can't figure out what to get him for Christmas though... other than what he wants (which is kinda cute in a pervy way).

Oh yeah... as you may (or may not) have noticed, I'm listening to Paris Hilton sing (click on the link to hear... you know you want to, you saucy minxes). Yeah... it's pretty bad but she can definitely be a gay icon with all the pop dance-y tunes she has on there.

I guess that's it for now.

Stay swell, you saucy minxes.
