I really liked the customized fonts that people have as their blog titles. I wanted that for mine, so I found out how to do it. Ta-da :)
YAY! My boy surprised me. Since I was feeling down, when we were on the phone, he decided to surprise me. He knocked on my door about five minutes ago. Just seeing him, hearing his voice, feeling his touch, kissing him...makes me feel all better :)
Time has felt like it was slowly passing by.
DISCLAIMER: Don't mind me. Sorry, just in a pissy mood.
I don't know why? David left my place early this morning, because he needed some 'alone' time. This past week has been busy for him. Personally, I really don't like being alone. There's times when I like it. Between choosing to spending time for myself or him, I choose him. Always. If it wasn't for my friend calling me, I would've just stayed home. I texted him a couple of times between 3pm-6:30pm. I didn't want to bother him and as his alone time. About 6:30pm, is when we all ate. I finally got a text at 6:45pm. He was sorry that he missed my text. His phone was off and didn't realize it. He said that he would've went if he had known.
I just felt like, not the first time, won't be the last something like that happened. I was just aggravated. So many times, we (my friend, her husband, David, and me) all have been trying to plan something, and nothing has worked out yet. I was still hurt by him wanting 'alone' time. It is basically him choosing not to be with me, even though that is not what he meant.
I called him after I got back, we really didn't say much. I didn't know what to say. I was still hurt. I was even still hurt from last night.
In good news, we leave on our cruise in 14 days :)
I made a 'blog button.' It's on the right side under followers. Grab it and add it to your blog, if you wish :)
This past Friday, I finished my second grad school class. The test was such BS. We were told it was multiple choice, true/false, and some short answer. Basically 95% was short answer! Oh well. I finished just in time to call David. He hadn't left yet to go to his parent's house. He was able to pick me up, so I didn't have to drive over there by myself. We sat around with his parents, his brother, and his brother's fiance and ate dinner. Afterwards, we went to the movies to see 'Shutter Island. I really enjoyed it, and it was one of the BEST movies that I've seen in a long time. It is also a book, which I heard is pretty good. I also heard that the movie is pretty close to the book. I went out and bought the book, because I enjoyed it so much. Definitely a must-see!
I ordered stuff for my cruise around the 20th or 21st. I was shocked to have it delivered on the 25th. I hadn't expected it, until March 3. I received one bathing suit, but not the other. I just now was curious, and it looks like it has been in the leasing office of my apartment for the past 4 days! The website for UPS shows a proof of delivery. There wasn't a note posted on my door like there usually is or a call from the office. The other package came by regular mail, but this one came by UPS. I don't understand why I didn't get it, because if I remember correctly, I was home the entire day! I got to go sort this out.
UPDATE: I went by there, and the office doesn't open up until 1pm. Ugh.

This was from October 2008...Me as a BLONDE! (Disclaimer: I was born with golden blonde hair, but when I was five years old, it turned to a chestnut brown).
Well, I had class tonight. Things did not go as planned. We got out early...at 7:40pm. I was PISSED! I know that I must be crazy to be mad about getting out of class early, but it is the principle. I rearranged my schedule to fit theirs, and then they mess it up again. As I was walking out, two other people from the class didn't seem to happy about it either. We all rearranged our nights and planned being out at 9pm. I figured David and the family hadn't left by then or was in the process of leaving, so I gave him a call. No answer. It just rang and rang. I left a text message. I was so mad that I wanted to punch something. I am NOT mad at him, but just the fact about class. He wasn't expecting me to get home until 9:30pm, so he wasn't expecting my call. About 40 minutes, I received one back from him. I was going to drive and meet them there. Nope. Too late, their food was coming. It was at one of my favorite restaurants that we hardly eat as a family, since one of his aunts is a vegetarian. On the drive home, I just wanted to scream. I, then started crying. I hate being frustrated. Sometimes I just have a short temper. It was just that I was really looking forward to family night, that's all.
Family night just means a lot to me. I never sat down like with my entire family and ate dinner. My family doesn't get along with each other. That kind of thing would never happen with my family. I really like taking part in family night with David's family. It just means a lot to me. I like being a part of it. I just don't think that he knows how I feel about the matter. I really enjoy it a lot. I feel like I'm part of the family. I like taking part of tradition. It's nice.
On a lighter side, I talked to the professor about missing for the Taylor Swift concert. She seemed okay with it, so I don't have that to worry about anymore. I also got my blue bathing suit in from Victoria's Secret and my military items. YAY! I admit that made me happier.
Sorry, for bitching. Once again, I needed to vent. I promise there will be much happier posts after my final in my class tomorrow. I'm just a little stressed.
I've calmed down now. I just have to remember to breathe.
I have class tonight. It is one of those classes that just happen once a month. It wouldn't be so bad, but tonight is 'family night.' It is usually on Wednesdays. For those of you who don't know, 'family night' is where David, his parents, his grandparents, aunts, and me get together and eat. This will be the third one that I have missed in a row! This time his brother and his fiance is coming. I can't go :( He is currently working in the Middle East, and before that he lived in D.C. I only met him once, and never met his fiance. I'm just hoping my final exam won't take long tomorrow, because that will be the only time, we all can hang out. It just depends on what time we are going to meet at David's parent's house. The exam is at 4:30pm, and hopefully won't take more than an hour. Oh well. Anyway, their wedding is in October. I just hope that I don't have class. I haven't got my schedule yet. I really don't think the teacher will look at that as a good excuse, but it has been planned for over a year. I'm just going to miss anyway. It's a once-in-a-lifetime event. I just hate having plans ruined or potentially ruined. Sometimes school is annoying like that, but I think it is so much better than work.
Sorry for bitching, just had to vent.
I first saw this post on The Survival Guide for the Young, Fabulous & Newlywed's blog. I thought this was really cute, so I'm going to post with my answers.
If I were a month, I'd be April. It's the month of my birthday.
If I were a day of the week, I’d be Friday. It's the start of the weekend.
If I were a time of day, I’d be 9pm. Random, I know, but it is when I'm out of class on Fridays. Overall, just a good time to go out, even on the weekdays.
I were a planet, I’d be Saturn. For as long as I can remember, I've always loved that planet. Must be the rings.
If I were a sea animal, I’d be a dolphin. I have never seen one in person...yet. I just think they are beautiful creatures.
If I were a direction, I’d be south. The South is where I grew up, and where I call home.
If I were a piece of furniture, I’d be a couch. Somewhere to sit and relax or just lie down to watch tv.
If I were a liquid, I’d be Diet Coke. I'm obsessed.
If I were a tree, I’d be a dogwood. I think they are so pretty and colorful. Funny thing actually, I was looking for a picture, and the picture I found was taken where I live.
If I were a tool, I’d be a hoe. Just kidding! I would probably be a hammer. It is what helps lay the foundation. It hammers the nails and keeps them in place.
If I were a kind of weather, I’d be a nice breezy summer day. Not too hot and not too windy. Just perfect.
If I were a musical instrument, I'd be a piano. I've been playing 18 years.
If I were a color, I’d be pink. It's such a girly color, and I'm such a girly girl.
If I were an emotion, I’d be love. There's no greater feeling.
If I were a fruit, I’d be a strawberry. My favorite fruit!
If I were a flower, I’d be a tiger lily. So pretty and exotic-looking.
If I were a sound, I’d be a laugh. Love to be silly and not take thing seriously, unless I have to.
If I were an element, I’d be silver. Great on jewelry.
If I were a car, I’d be a Mini Cooper. I don't have one, but I think they are cute and classy.
If I were a food, I’d be french fries. I LOVE them!
If I were a gemstone, I’d be a diamond. My birthstone.
If I were a material, I’d be cashmere. Cashmere sweaters are so nice and so warm.
If I were a taste, I’d be salty. I love to add salt to my foods. I prefer something salty over sweet, anyday.
If I were a place, I’d be beach. So beautiful.
If I were a scent, I'd be Burberry Brit Sheer. One of my favorite perfumes.
If I were a body part, I'd be the eyes. Eyes can tell so much to someone, without you muttering a word.
If I were an object, I’d be the iPhone. It goes with me everywhere, and helps me keep in touch with everyone, besides my computer.
If I were a facial expression, I would be a smile. Something I can't stop doing, when I'm around David.
If I were a song, I would be an upbeat, catchy song.
If I were a pair of shoes, I'd be a pair of peep-toe heels or ballet flats.
A few days ago, I was reading everyone's blog, and came across Crayola 'Window Markers' and 'Window Crayons.' I can't for the life of me remember where I saw it. Sorry! It was such a cute idea. David and I ran out to Target to shop for whatever. I hadn't left the house in over a day. After dinner, I didn't want to come back to my place. I didn't want to be cooped up. I had to get out. I decided to look for the markers and crayons. I looked for them everywhere.. in the toys, baby toys, bath section, and stationary sections. David was puzzled into what it could be. Something that could be placed in all of these four sections? I found them in the stationary section. We came back and drew all over my bathroom mirrors. We even wrote all over each other, even though, I don't think that is what they were used for. Oops!

This is not only the title of my blog, but my
"Everything happens for a reason."-Anonymous
"I believe everything happens for a reason. People change so you can learn to let go. Things go wrong, so you can appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies, so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself. Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."-Marilyn Monroe
I've been so hurt before in the past. I always wondered why things never worked out, relationship-wise. I wondered what was wrong with me. I, then realized that that wasn't a part of the plan. All of those things had to fall apart because something greater was in store (my relationship with David-my soulmate). It was like that Rascal Flatts song:

Dear Grad School,
Thank you for only being on Friday evenings, Saturday mornings, and Saturday afternoon. Basically, ruining every chance I have at a weekend trip. Only unless, school isn't scheduled. You, just like work, has ruined many plans. You require me to be at unnecessary meetings. Not only do I have to wait three months for a weekend off, but you have decided to schedule a class at the worst possible time. Thank you for letting me waste of my Christmas gifts. Guess that means no Taylor Swift concert for me. We need to talk about this. One last thing, what is with all this busy work? Thankfully, soon, I will be off for a month. Until, we meet again. You suck.
Monday, February 22, 2010
Before, I started dating David, I had a "relationship" with this guy. Let's call him J. Well, when I met David, I didn't want to see J anymore. He really didn't like this. He kept messaging me on Facebook and iChat. He kept asking if I was still taken and
trying asking me to come over. Of course, I would say no. It got extremely annoying, because he would also text me. It seemed like every time he would do this, I was never with David. David was either out of town or staying at his place. When David went to Washington D.C. for three weeks, J was still contacting me. We had a two hour conversation. It basically ended with me saying a lot of bitchy things and that I never wanted to be with him again (which should be obvious, since I wasn't with him). He deleted my number from his phone, and didn't contact me again. Yeah right! J would message me on Facebook and make small talk. He would say, hey and what's up, and basically leave it at that. J drank a lot and that seemed to be the time he would message me.
I never told David about that, until this past week. We were just talking about past relationships, funny stories, and annoying people. This is when I brought this up. I really didn't mention it, because J backed off and wasn't annoying me anymore.
This past weekend, I had my laptop with me at David's place, since after class I drove over there. J was messaging me AGAIN. He repeated the same things over and over. He said that he missed me, and that I lost something good. He also said that I should come over and that he can keep a secret. J also said that he wanted me to cheat on my boyfriend. This was all after when I told J that I was at my boyfriend's place! I was telling David and his roommate what was going on. They were getting annoyed. David and I got on my Facebook, and deleted him from my friends. I really didn't know how he would react. I didn't know if he would get all crazy and try to stalk me.
On Sunday, I had this message on my facebook (from J):
"Sorry about last night I just found what I typed. I'm sorry and you did the right thing we shouldn't be friends so that drunk me doesn't bother you"
Hopefully, this will be the last time that I hear from him. Only time will tell.
This past weekend, I ordered two bathing suits from Victoria's Secret. Even though, I have about twenty bathing suits, I figured I would treat myself. With one of the bathing suits, I got a free tote bag for the beach. The blue/white/black one in the picture is exactly the one I got (the same top and bottom). The black/white one has a balconet top with the new cheeky bottom!
I also went by New York & Company to see what they had on sale. I was so excited when I found out what I wanted was 60% off! Jewelry was buy one, get one 75% off. I'm going to wear these together, and bring it on the cruise with me.
Lastly, I bought some cute military items, so I could support my boyfriend. I bought a shirt and a magnet. I really liked these. I can't wait to wear it!
This past weekend after class, I spent the night at my boyfriend's place. He thought his roommates were going to be out of town, but they came back on Saturday. This was fine, since we all get along. It was sooo warm compared to what it had been. It was about 60 degrees. It may not seem that warm, but when you have been used to the 20 and below, it feels like a heat wave. Here in Kentucky, this year it has been the coldest it has ever been in a LONG time. Kentucky has the weirdest weather. One time on Christmas, it was 70 degrees and on my birthday in April, it snowed. The weather is so unpredictable here. On Sunday, he made me breakfast. We had pink pancakes with chocolate chips inside them, bacon, and eggs. After breakfast, I was working on my school stuff and so was he. We are already acting like a married couple. Later, since it was so warm, we took the motorcycle out and rode around for awhile. By the time we got back to his mom's place, it was getting chilly again. We rode to her place, so we all could eat dinner together. Today, it is rainy. Blah.

Where I live was declared a state of emergency because of the weather and bad conditions. This wasn't as bad as last year, where we were the hardest hit by the ice/snow storm. We had two inches of ice and on top of that thirteen inches. Here is the full story: of snow. Here's the full article: January 2009 Central Plains and Midwest Ice Storm. Like I said earlier, it is not as nearly as bad as it has been. The picture to the left is about from two weeks ago. Now, we have about five inches and some snow drifts, plus we have some ice under the snow. Last night was really bad. So bad that David didn't come to my place after work. I was supposed to go to an AA meeting for one of my graduate school classes, but the roads were bad, so I didn't. Tonight, I was going to a NA meeting, but there weren't any OPEN meetings. I have to wait until tomorrow, which means I have to miss family night. I'm so pissed. I guess that is what I get for putting off assignments, until the last moment. I also have a 7-10 research paper that is due this Saturday. I'm not even half way through. These next couple of days are going to be boring and hectic. Tomorrow I also have an interview. A 'real' job. One that would be good to get, but I really don't feel like going tomorrow. I will because that would be the adult thing to do. It is just soooo freakin' cold here. It's unbearable. I will be so glad that in 26 days that I will be in the Western Caribbean with my sweetie!
This past weekend, I
had my first exam in graduate school. It was so hard. Basically, everything I
studied looked over, wasn't on it. Everyone did bad though! So bad, the teacher had to throw out the questions that were missed the most. When I heard that, my first thought was, Is he going to throw out the whole test? My grade rose eleven points. I am not happy with the grade, but it was a lot better than it was before. write about graduate school class.
I was on Facebook earlier on Saturday, I saw one person was going to go see the band, Lucero. This is one of my boyfriend's favorite bands. I assumed that they were going to Nashville or traveling to some other city, since they always go to concerts.The very next day, I found out that the band was in town at one of the local bars. I was so mad, because I have been looking for tickets for quite some time. I didn't know t
hey weren't a "big name." I always searched on Ticketmaster. When I searched on their official website, there was my city listed. I was upset. It would have been a good gift for him. Now, I will have to wait.
On Friday, David had a bouquet of flowers delivered to me. On Saturday, David had ordered me a PajamaGram and had it delivered.
After class, we went to eat at T.G.I.Fridays, and to the movies to watch Valentine's Day. We celebrated Valentine
's Day by getting dinner at Bakers 360. It is a restaurant/night club/bar on the 15th floor in one of the building downtowns. It was really expensive and probably one of the best meals, I have ever eaten.

David and I were going out last night to eat and watch Dear John. Somehow we were talking about engagements and marriage. We were talking about how people were posting that thing on Facebook: a picture of them together and how long they have been dating. I told him a lot of people had been dating really short periods of times before being engaged; like 3-7 months. (We have been dating 7 months).
I was also worried about school. I have a test this weekend. Next weekend, I have a 7-10 page paper, 2-3 page reaction paper, and presentation about my 7-10 page paper I wrote. The next weekend, I have another 7-10 page paper, website that I have to create for potential employers, and a test. David said, I'll be okay, and that one day I will finally listen and believe him. I said it was when I was talking to John (my best friend), about David, when we first met and first started dating. John said that David is different than any other guy I have dated. Later, I told John that he was right. John asked me, "When you are going to listen to me?" I told David, that John thought we would be engaged by April or I owed him a drink, because I didn't think we would be. David said, "I hope this isn't too forward, but if I had a good job, we would already be engaged."
I saw Dear John last night. I thought it was horrible. I thought the movie was too short, and the movie left out very important parts that were in the book. You really didn't get to see their relationship fall apart, their relationship even develop, him and his dad's relationship in more detail, and other parts that were in the book that would help explain things. If only the movie had been 30 minutes longer... I just don't think the chemistry was there between the two characters. Also, they changed the ending, which changed the whole meaning of the story. I figure I would cry, being a girl and emotional. I didn't cry at all. About the only sad parts were between John and his dad. As a whole, I was extremely disappointed. The book was way better.
Wednesday, February 10, 2010
I just read the book, Dear John, by Nicholas Sparks. I debated back and forth, whether I should read it before or after I saw the movie. I was really curious, so I decided to read it. It didn't take me very long to read it. It was an alright book, but it wasn't what I had expected. I had expected something along the lines of The Notebook. Maybe the movie is different, I don't know? I'll keep my comments vague because I don't want to spoil it for someone who hasn't read the book. I really didn't like Savannah at the end, and how she acted towards John. I can't believe she did what she did. If I was in her situation, which I probably will be. David is going to deploy sometime in the next few years, unless something comes up, and they don't. I'm going to stand by my man 100% and be 100% faithful to him. I just don't understand how Savannah could have done what she did, when she said she "loved" John. Anyone else think this?
Off topic, but how awesome is it that Dear John, a love story beat out Avatar, at the Box Office, after weeks and weeks being on top.
On Sunday, David came by after drill. I hadn't seen him since Thursday morning. He was in uniform. He looked so good :) This is about the third time that I have seen him in uniform. While he was hugging me, I felt even more safe than usual.
On Monday, we were talking about marriage and proposals. It seems a couple of people have recently gotten engaged. He was talking about his brother and how he proposed to his fiance on top of a medieval castle in Syria. David was talking and was like, how do you top that. He said he was thinking of ideas. He stopped and said, why am I discussing this with you. You aren't supposed to be a part of the planning of the proposal. Haha!
On Tuesday, David and I booked our trip for spring break. As of today, we leave in 32 days. We weren't able to do the cruise that we originally planned, but we are doing one that is similar. We are now going to: the Grand Cayman Islands, Isla Roaton (Honduras), Cozumel Mexico, and Belize. We are going to be flying to Miami, Florida. We were able to get nonstop flights to and from Miami, which is awesome. It is 7 day cruise. I am so excited that I can hardly wait! This will be my first 'real' trip ever, plus my first time in a 'real' plane. I've flown in a private plane, but not a commercial airliner. I am just really excited about going somewhere warm and experiencing new things with my guy :)

Last Saturday, my class was cancelled due to the weather. We had it over the internet though. David left to do some things and get this computer, so he could come back over. He called a few hours later, and said he felt sick. I was sad. I didn't want to have to sit there and listen to this class. About 9:30pm, I received a knock on my door. It was David. He wanted to surprise me. I love that boy so much!

I have been so stressed the past couple of weeks with everything that has been going on: money, work ('cause it sucks), my female problems, graduate school, my homework, my mom not being mad at me, getting my loan and tax money.
I have been so forgetful and stressed. David and I drove over an hour to the doctor on Monday, only to realize we were....a day EARLY! It was my fault. I told everyone it was Monday. I had a copy of the appointment time, appointment date, and payor information. It didn't sink in, until we were at the doctor. They said that my doctor wasn't there. That's when they told us that my appointment was tomorrow. We drove back, and went on with our lives. He went to class, and I stayed home. I turned in my papers for my loans. A few hours, after I had gotten home, I forgot to checkmark one of the boxes on the papers. I was so frustrated with myself. I didn't want to cause a delay in me getting the money.
Today, David and I went to the doctor. The doctor was extremely nice. She did the colposcopy and a biopsy. She said everything looked okay, and that I should be fine. I need to be checked out every six months. I went and checked on my loan papers. It turns out, that I didn't have to checkmark anything on that paper. I was so relieved!
One more thing that is taken care of and no longer have to be stressed about. Today, my phone was in my purse for over half of the day. I looked at my phone, and realized my supervisor called. OMG! That makes me so mad. I called in. She doesn't need to call me. She left me a message and told me to call her. Umm...no thanks! So I didn't.
I also made an important decision. I am quitting my job tomorrow! I figured out financially how I can pull it off. This month will be extremely tight. I really need to get my taxes done, so I will have that money. After that comes in, I will be fine. I know my mom won't be too happy and me not having a job, since she worries about me. I am doing what is best for me. I hope she can understand that. I also hope she won't try to ruin mine and David's plans for vacation.
