Busy Fun Week + Halloweekend!

Craptastic. I wrote this whole thing ready to publish
and then Live Writer goes haywire on me!

I’ll try to make this go like it was suppose to.
This was suppose to be like last week’s post since y’all liked it so much
but this would probably mean once a week post …
I don’t know how I feel about that yet.

Monday:

Taylor Swift’s album RED dropped.
Better believe it’s been played five billion times already.

Tuesday:

Pumpkins were carved!
Lauren F. and I went over to Mallory’s and I carved my very first pumpkin.
Check off my Bucket List! It was oooey gooey and I loved it.
Guess which one is mine! Sadly ours got super moldy in like two days. 😦

Michelle’s going away dinner at Chuy’s with Stephanie.
Michelle is the new Lufkin reporter!
Cannot wait to see her new place!
She’s going to make it big one day!
The only picture of us three from that night … sorry.

Alyssa’s friend, Erin K.,
posted about Painting with a Twist
for a Cause … Relay for Life.
Hello, I’m all down for that. I threw in the big bucks and went!

I had a lot of fun.
Freaked out a lot thinking this is gonna be one ugly painting
but it came out pretty okay.

The people in the class were hilarious and fun to be around.
They were acting like little kids and Erin and I were the youngest ones there!
I’m already wanting to go back …

I baked for the coworkers that night regardless of how late it was.
We’ve been having a sluggish week at work.

Friday:

After work nothing happened at all.
I’m pretty sure I slept for a good 20 hours. Jk.
I slept for 3 hours and painted this thing in less than however long Despicable Me is.
It’ll get better with more practice … hopefully.

Saturday:

Sally Hansen stick on nail things.
Sent on accident but got to keep!
Worked well with my costume: Skulls with pink glittery background.
Note to self and everyone else … put on a top coat.

Mallory’s birthday … plus Halloweekend!
Baked her a cake then headed to her place
where I met all her friends from college
who were watching the aTm game.
I drank out of an aTm cup to fit in …

I hadn’t celebrated her birthday with her since were where both seniors in high school.
Us then (graduation rehearsal).
Us now (last night).
We definitely look nothing like we use to …

And now just pictures from the night.

Mallory, me, & Sarah

No matter what went down this has got to be one of my favorite Halloweekends ever.
I had a lot of fun.
One of the best Houston downtown nightlife experience as well.
Thanks Mal!

After such a fulfilling week
it’s gonna be a little sad going to my regularly scheduled days.
Hopefully I can still have some fun.

Have a great week ahead!

Instagramed Weekend

Thursday:

Lunch with the coworkers and BossMan.
We went to La Madeline’s then Ooh La La Bakery.
Here we have the Red Velvet.
I wasn’t a great fan of it.
Pure sugar in the frosting and no taste in the cake part.

IMG_20121011_173819

Happy Hour with the coworkers and BossMan.
My usual Guinness.
They know how to do it right here at The King’s Head Pub.
Lots of foam. YUM!

Friday:

Day off = Dentist appointment.
Not a fan of any kinds of doctors.
Got an Asian Dentist … racists. jk.
Got my teeth cleaned and told that I need to extract all four of my wisdom teeth.
Scared. Need to set appointment. Ahh first surgery of my life.

IMG_20121013_234017

Sonic run with June after Just Dance 3.
Pretty much ate back everything we burned.
I got a mini strawberry milkshake and almost didn’t finish.
I don’t know how people can do sweets like this.

Saturday:

Almost took this baby home.
A Chiuauaua mix.
He was the right height for running and right size to pick up and cuddle with.
Too hyper out of the kennel though and wasn’t potty trained.

Sunday:

IMG_20121014_165447

Sissy & Brett came home to visit and brought Bruno Baby.
Can’t get enough of his cuteness.

Old school blood pressure measurer.
With mercury and everything.

Sunday night football … Texans lost.

IMG_20121014_225009

Red Velvet Cake for Sissy’s early birthday celebration.
Soooo good. Better than Ooh La La.
We had Korean BBQ to celebrate as well.
No more Korean BBQ for a long while … haha

My life isn’t really crazy wild like others. Anyway, I hope this week is going well for all. We’re almost there! 😉

Games Galore and Paleo

Such long days this month just as I knew it would be.

I cannot wait until April 14th is over. I will have a little more time for myself.

Right now, I feel I’m behind in school but I think I’ll be fine. Just a little more reading. A little more late nights … like right now and I will be fine. Positive thoughts only! Smile

Tonight I had four different games: Co-Rec Basketball, 4×4 Football, Co-Rec Dodgeball, Co-Rec Softball.

Sadly when I went to my car to drive to the games, I realized my battery was DEAD. Curses. Luckily I got a ride!

Needless to say, we lost basketball (close game!), the other team forfeited football, won two games of dodgeball (we are now in the championships!!), and the other team forfeited softball.

If it wasn’t for those forfeits, I think I would of died. I literally changed my shoes eight times since they overlapped so much. Mmm … joy.

Even though we didn’t have a softball game, we still got to hit some balls and pitch and throw. Fun! Smile

Tomorrow is Day 1 of Paelo! Patricia, Shayna, and I went grocery shopping after all my games!

Excited, I am.

Happy Hump Day Y’all! We’re almost there!

Thank You

Thank you everyone that’s reached out and made sure I’m okay. I haven’t had a chance to reply due to everything going on. It’s mostly the stress, rude people, and unnecessary drama in my life.

Today a series of events made me angry and I never really truly get angry unless you push me over the top.

I vented everything just now to Jenny which I also never do because I feel venting about something won’t fix anything. And talking to her about it doesn’t do any good because she doesn’t know any of the people I talk about and therefore, she can’t help me fix what I’m angry at.

I’ll get over it by tomorrow most likely.

My only form of fitness lately is doing sports. Basketball games, basketball practices, football practices, soccer games … which actually totals up to almost 10 hours a week. I actually had a Basketball game yesterday, Co Rec, and we won 61-49! Victory. Very hard victory to get. Shin splints and pulled back muscle for me and I had to play. For the team right? I’m glad I did.

Anyway, I hope everyone’s doing better than I am. Few more days until Spring Break. I cannot wait.

Busy Weekend

Picture0372

I woke up late yesterday to the 5k Diploma Dash. I brushed my teeth and jumped on Jenny’s bed so she could take me. I made it in time!! And walked the 5k in less than an hour. I had shin splints so doing it in 56 minutes wasn’t bad to me. I beat other people younger than me who walked it in more than 1 hour. Next time I will run the 5k in October in Houston. At least that’s the plan.

I went to basketball practice but change of plans made practice into scrimmages. Leah wasn’t going to come to practice but she was watching some kid show (up above) with her nephew and her words exactly, “This is what made me come …” long pause “… to basketball practice.” Which made me laugh so loud. Love her.

Leah and I waited too long to get our scrimmage on so we left with Eric T. and Gerald. Said bye to Leah and the rest of us went and ate Pho on Bitters. It was delicious. Especially on such a windy day. We had lots of laughter and giggles. A lot of inside jokes and I got to know them better. It was fun and it was more amazing because Gerald drove instead of me. I hate driving!

I went home to relax then went to Flying Saucer with Amanda, Brent, and Jenny. What was suppose to be a date with Amanda and I became a double … in a way. I didn’t mind it though. The more the merrier.

I caught up with Amanda about stuff going on with her and stuff going on with me. Brent and Amanda gave me some advice which kind of made me feel better but at the same time, not so much.

2012-02-25 23.43.46

Jenny got the Texas sample beers. YuM! I think I want to do that next time I go just so I can try everything.

We bumped into Travis at Flying Saucer earlier and he said he was going to come over whenever we got home. And so he did. We hung out and talked and looked at funny pictures online.

First time in my life I was so tired that I kept closing my eyes. So we called it a night.

Woke up early working on things then went to Football Practice for a few hours. I am so tired out.

Jenny and I just got back from Fish City Grill. Sad we couldn’t get crawfish but next time. Next time. Open-mouthed smile

Soccer Game in one hour and thirty minutes. Let’s go! Winking smile

Recording Studio

I went to Football Practice for an hour and a half. I left half an hour early so that I could get ready. I finally had a chance to step foot in a recording studio. Though it’s connected to a house, it was better than I imagined.

Katrina, Preston, Dilip, Ryan Z., and I were present for Micaela who was recording a song for FTK.

689

Star of the show, Micaela, busting out her song, Capture That Dream. She had several takes and we finally found the right one that had enough emotion and confidence.

Then came the hard part of adding harmonies and the such. I didn’t want to intrude since I was a guest so I would whisper ideas to Ryan Z. (Overall Chairperson for FTK and Micaela’s brother). And when I finally did speak more openly about my ideas, and they used them, it made me all happy. I contributed to the final product and it feels damn nice.

881

Ryan and I during one of the playbacks.

The producer is going to put in some beats and see how it sounds. I cannot wait to hear all the different versions and see which one sounds the best!

I’ve always wanted a recording studio, and today it just confirmed it even more. Uh … is it too late to change my major?

FSA Parties

I’m thankful I’ve grown up to realize that I don’t need to pretend to be someone I’m not.

Tonight I looked around the room and saw so many people trying to fit in. They try so hard to get someone to laugh at their jokes or to get some kind of approval. I feel sorry for those people. The sooner they realize trying hard will never get them to fit in, the sooner they realize their own personalities are lovely. That they don’t need to pretend.

I’ve made new friendships tonight and had fun getting to know certain people but it would have been better without the annoying people, loud noises, big crowds, drunk people vomiting everywhere, and the such.

I forgot how FSA parties get …

Football practice tomorrow! I’m ready.
