9 to 5 - Not really but loving it

As usual, not a long going on in the personal life.  Nothing on the dating website front. It's scary as usual. What's new with that?  But I have found 2 websites that have helped me pass the time away.

http://shitgirlssay.com/ - I hope you don't get offended by this but hi-larious!
http://pinterest.com/ - So addictive!  Wish there was more time in the day to read everything on this.

Working a lot but loving it.  Our company opened a beer garden and restaurant right next door to the theater about 2 weeks ago. Someone asked me if it was going to be tough to work for 2 venues?  My answer - Heck no, it's job security.  After 3 lay-offs, it's a blessing to have a job.  So bring it on.  I am excited when I get up in the morning and head to work. I thank God every morning that I get to do so.

Today's soundtrack theme is working.  So happy that I am. Woo!!  Enjoy it!

I live with an Animal

The other day my friend at work, Tobi (but I calls her Tob's) were talking about our pets.  We both have male pets. She has a dog name Belvedere and of course you know my squatter, Oliver.

After about 10 - 15 minutes we came to the following conclusions.  Our male pets are the equivalent of really bad boyfriends.
1. They only sleep with you when they want to.
2. They poop and smell your house and don't even spray any air freshener.
3. They don't have a job.
4. They sleep most of time.
5. They leave a huge mess i.e. shed like no body's business.

Our lesson here is the only way we will accept this type of behavior is in pet. Maybe that's why we these little fur babies so that we know what not to accept in a relationship. So for today's soundtrack, the theme is pets.  Enjoy!

Fashion Monday

Let's hear it for shopping. I finally was able to check out the new H&M store at Northpark Center.  I was so excited. I had no idea what to expect.  I purposely didn't go to their website so that I could be surprised.  It was much bigger than I thought.  I made my way through all the sales racks ($5 items - I am gonna love this store) and then took my time through the regular priced items. And what a bonanza.  I found some really great items. All for about $50 and bonus, nothing was sale so that means, this little chica will be able to shop there so much more often than I thought.  Here's my loot:

Gonna try to wear a flower - channeling my inter Carrie Bradshaw.

Looks kinda plain but really cute.

This is black cardigan but I took a crappy picture.

For today's soundtrack, it's fashion. Enjoy the tunes!

I am not Under Pressure

It's a new year!  Happy 2012!!  Woo! In the years past, I would have my entire apartment cleaned (from top to bottom), all my laundry done and everything would be organized by the the first of January. It usually took me 2 - 3 days and I would be so exhausted from doing it. I've always felt like if everything wasn't in order, the rest of my year would be a mess. I know it's a silly thought but that is just something that's always been with me.  But this year, I made a huge decision. I decided that my New Year's Eve home project would not be this year. The pressure has been lifted. I can't tell you how much better I feel. I am not in a mad rush, I am just being.

It feels good to just be. Don't get me wrong, my apartment isn't in shambles but it's not in the Martha Stewart perfect order like I would normally like it to be. No pressure, just living. Along with my big decision, I decided to hold off on my resolutions. Just like everyone else at the beginning of the year, I am a big talker but then get a little sad when I don't keep them. So I am going to start off small. Don't know what they are yet but I am giving myself until the end of the week to create my small victories.

Here is to not putting pressure on me and my life. So for today's soundtrack, the theme is pressure (or the lack of it). Enjoy!!!
