So today I'm going to start painting my room (hopefully). It's going from purple with designs to a solid bread-baskety color. A lighter tan. I was going to take before and after pictures, but I completely forgot to take them before I tore my room apart. So I may reuse a picture of my room (maybe that really messy one I have in one of my previous blogs). I'm really excited about my new theme. I'm going to run up to Hobby Lobby today and look at some fun things that'll help tie my room together when it's completely painted...and I need black paint for a shelf so yay! Perfect time to go. I may just paint my desk drawers red because I don't really have time to make it look the way I want.

I can't wait to show y'all what the finished product is <3

Horses Have Magic Powers

Nothing went right today. I'm sorry I'm venting in my own blog, you don't have to read this if you don't want to. Just me nagging and ranting and such.

[Edit] Oh wow, I didn't realize it was this long until I published it. Uh, beware? It's lengthy.[/Edit]

But seriously though. Horses do have magic powers. Mmhm, I believe it. They can make you happy just by lookin' at 'em and petting them and even sitting on them. Unfortunately though, I don't have a horse so I'm stuck being miserable.

The day started out alright. I woke up earlier than I wanted (8:15 am) because a friend an hour ahead of me texted me. I told her I was sleeping and all she said was "So." That made me unhappy. So I tried to go back to sleep but it evaded me. So I went to the bathroom then back to my room and got on my computer and did my usual check the mail/play on my art site/deer site/facebook, but then decided I needed to go eat breakfast and take my medicine. There were some powdered donuts on the counter that looked rather delicious so I took one and had a bite and they weren't half I had a few more. Or at least I thought it was a few. Me and my glutenous self only left 3 for the rest of my family to eat. Oops. Sorry mom. So I continued being a bum and played on my computer until it was time to go turn in my Mcalisters application. This was around noon or so, going on 1 I think. My sister and I hadn't eaten lunch so we decided we'd skip lunch altoghether and just get Marble Slab ice cream after I dropped off my application. Well I went inside and had to wait for the manager, no biggie, and we actually had a small interview. He was looking for someone to work in the morning...well I'm hoping to get a morning class for summer school and would want to work in the afternoons or evenings. So he said he'd give me a call if something opened.

So I got back in the car with my sister and she asked how it went and I told her. She immediately came back with "You're looking for a job! Why didn't you take it!?" I told her I wanted the morning class. She came back with "Well have you registered?" "....well, no," "SO THEN WHY DIDN'T YOU TAKE IT!?" GAH she made me feel awful. I was looking for a job and it was practically handed to me on a platter. So me being me started beating myself up about it on the inside. We went to get our ice cream (I got banana, yum) and I told my sister how there's a horseback riding lessons place thing where I live and I'd want to check it out. She comes back with "BUT YOU NEED A JOB YOU WON'T HAVE TIME TO RIDE nag nag nag." Thanks, Em. Yeah it's true I do need a job, but I haven't even looked into the place yet, but she said I could take her car today and go check it out.

Still beating myself up about the job, I get home, take a bathroom break, put on my boots, quick look at the map and head out. I turn to the street it's supposed to be on and Google Maps LIED TO ME. I was on the right street, but it dead ended into the back part of the property. So I turned around and headed back to what I vaguely rememberd from the site map. After a few more wrong turns I finally find it. I talk to a really nice girl and she gives me all the information I need. I'll call tomorrow to set up an orientation time for Sunday so they can evaluate how I ride and if I'm lucky, I'll get into the advanced class which meets Tuesday nights.

So I head home and start looking to see where the Petsmart application online is and type in my zip code and nothing in Texas came up. It only gave me Alabama-Arizona. What? I was so confused. And mad. Then my stomach started feeling icky around 3. Something didn't settle well from what I ate today, granted all I stuffed into my stomach was sugar. It was not fun. I went back and sat on the couch and started filling out my summer school application. I ask my sister for help on one of the questions, she asks what I'm doing and again she snaps at me "YOU SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN THIS DONE A MONTH AGO!" Well if I recall correctly my mom said I just needed to apply. I figured getting it done before June (I know I'm pushing it, but) would be okay. I got it done and I'll send in a college transcript tomorrow (if our school site is working by tomorrow) and hopefully still be okay. My stomach still felt awful so I just layed my head down for a bit. After I felt up to moving again I went and cleaned out a fish tank I had kept a captured frog in.

I'm afraid to tell my parents that I didn't take the job opportunity because I was going to take a history class I hadn't even applied for yet. I'm afraid they're going to get mad at me. Now I know my mom reads my blog (because she mentioned how I had posted a picture of our table. She wasn't happy.) so she'll either find out tonight or through this. I'm mostly afraid to tell my dad because I know he'll be the one to strike out worse than my big sister or mom did/will.

Eeehhhhh....Nothing's really gone right today. I really just want to go to bed and pretend like today never happened it do it all over again.

Scavenger Hunt

Let's have a scavenger hunt...on my kitchen table...I hate coming home from college and seeing my table look like a trash dump! I can't remember the last time we ate as a family at this table. So, just imagine. If my table looks like this, imagine what the rest of my house looks like. Now, I understand my mom works a job from like 7am to 5pm (or at least that's when she isn't home) then my little sister can't drive yet and she's got a number of things to do because she's in band and loves doing theatre things and my mom is tired after work and just doesn't want to move, but really? Does it have to get this bad? When you're watching tv can you just...not multitask and clear off the table while watching tv? Gaaah.

Good news though, I've gotten a new phone, yaaaaay! My family has also switched to verizon, so I'm trying the Samsung Glyde out for 30 days to see if I like it. It's a touch screen that slides open like my old phone to reveal a full keyboard. I like it so far, granted I've only had it for a day (ish). My number is the same, but since I broke my broke my old phone I can't get any numbers out of it. Boo. Oh well, at least I have one now so I can put the number on job apps.
Yaaaaay. Bad news, I'm still sick and my bronchitis is kicking in and I was hoping that I would break my record thing and not get bronchitis every year twice a year, but nooo. Got my usual bronchitis. Yuck. I hope y'all are having a great summer so far!

I'm apparently getting a sinus infection. I've got a nasty headache, I'm coughing up junk, blowing my nose frequently, and I'm moody. Thanks Mother Nature. I'm not thrilled about my sickness. This means that if I do get an interview in the next week I'll be going in sick. Not good. Since I didn't get the job at Happy Acres, now I don't even want a job because I feel like I'll simply be miserable because I won't enjoy doing it. My dad is getting mad that I'm not actively applying for jobs even at the places I don't want to work and I can't help that the economy sucks. That's one reason no one is hiring. Now, I've only applied at 3 places, mind you, but I'm getting sick and don't want to move/get out of the house to go look for jobs. I mean, can you imagine walking into a nice store with eyes half shut, a sniffy nose, red eyes, and a nasaly voice saying "can I get an application?" They'll be disgusted and think you have the plague. Well, maybe not, but they might look at you funny. Ugh. I'm seriously debating on taking a nap...or crying till I fall asleep.

Well Boo...

I didn't get the job at the horse ranch. They really didn't have anything open for me. But oh well. Sometimes optimism pays off and sometimes God just has other ideas. I'll still apply for jobs and such, but I'm afraid I'll really hate going to work because I don't want to swipe items over a scanner thing 6 hours out of my day. I would rather scoop horse poop. 


Also, remember how I said I was going to post a blog about my future house? Maybe I'll do that later today :]

Sometimes optimism pays off.

So I bucked up the courage to call the horse boarding place and found out that the owner is an ACU alum. Holy cow! So he and I had a lovely conversation on the phone and he told me to stop by later today to talk to his wife about a possible job position. Well I walked over there (because by driving it takes like 2 seconds to get there, so why bother) and turns out she was napping (or something). So I went to the fence over by her house and her two gorgeous horses (a chestnut and bay) came to say hello. They were quite friendly. I was tempted to hop on bareback and bridle-less, but I'd probably get in big trouble, so I started heading home and another bay in the paddock next to the two ambled over to say hello. I scratched his neck and he threw his head on me for a hug. He was anxious to get some exercise 'cause he kept stompin his foot. Either that or a bug was botherin' him. It was rather hot that day.

Anywho, so I head home and wait a while before I decide to call to see if it was convenient for me to head over and the wife picked up (yay!) and I told her I spoke to her husband and that they might see if there's a position I could work. Well...she seemed kind of relucant and said that they had quite a bit of help and might not have anything for me to do, so we'll see. She says she'll talk to her husband tonight and I'll call tomorrow to set up a time I suppose. And if I don't end up getting a job, maybe she'll know of some places that will let me ride freely (and not on a simple trail ride) a couple hours in the day.

So I'm trying to stay optimistic and praying. I really want this job (I actually have no idea what to do yet, but if I'm around horses, it'll make me happy). I will most definitely keep y'all updated.

I've also found a place in Wylie (which is literally right next door to Sachse) where I might be able to ride. Maybe I'll bug the parentals and have them take me out there (because knowing my big sister, she'll probably want the car on Saturday to go hang with her friends) and take a look around.

Wish me luck!

Today...I'm going to take inventory of my room. Go through things I know I'll keep and make a pile of things that I'm going to sell in our garage sale, make a pile of things that I'll trash, and make a pile of things that I should probably ask myself why I still have. It's going to take me a while. This is how my room looks at the moment and I still have bins and boxes waiting to be unpacked downstairs. This should be amusing. 
I'll want to go buy things to stay organized, but I'm thinking I'll probably go around the house and see what I can create to help keep things organized. Believe me, my parents won't know the materials are missing. My house looks kind of like my room does at the moment. We moved both me and my big sister back into the house. Some time this summer I'll be painting my room tan (both my sisters' rooms and our living room are of a tan color, so I figured I'd join the club.)

  I might repaint my desk drawers too. And maybe the shelf that holds all my stuffed animals. Purple + tan? Not a great mix. I might paint it red...or something. I'm not sure what to paint my desk drawers though.

If I could get a mahogany red I think it would look gorgeous, but it wouldn't have that wood grain texture in it so it'd be useless. Maybe a simple red or tan.  My black shelf and desk will probably stay the same and I might replace the Japanese/chinese lanterns that are over my bed. I also need to go through things in my closet. It's a disaster (no picture for you because it'll make your eyes bleed).  So here I go. Time to take inventory.

Hmm...maybe I should...go get a giant trash bag...or 5.

Today I moved out of my dorm. It was a rather sad sight. But what's done is  done and right now I'm at my older sister's duplex thing. She graduates tomorrow. Dudewoah. I can't believe this school year is already over. 

Let's begin summer.

RIP Mr. Phone

So, my phone, aka: Mr. Phone, has been fractured for sometime now (meaning, he's been broken, but still works), but today as I was getting lunch he slipped out of my hand and crashed onto the tile. Now me, knowing he's injured, thought nothing of it until I tried to turn him on (because sometimes when I drop him he'll turn off) and he wouldn't start up. So I took off the rubber bands that were holding him together and... his top fell from his bottom.


So that's why he won't turn on... So I am... currently without a phone for who knows how long which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it also isn't good, ie: job applications.

Yeah... So, Mr. Phone has gone to the grave.

My Non-Planner

That's right! A non-planner. It came in the mail yesterday, but by the time I found out the mail office was closed so I went and got it this morning. I was so excited. It looks like it'll be a blast and I hope it'll help me get ideas of how to get organized and stay on track of things. It's quite small, and doesn't contain very many pages (96), but oh boy does it look fun. I'm going to have to pace myself and not fill the book in all at the same time.  EEEE I'm just so excited.

I do hope...that after this week ends and Mother's Day is heartily celebrated, that I will be able to go and spend about 5 days with my bestie, Carissa, but that's if Dad gives the okay and there's room on the plane. (Seeing as it'll just be me, how hard can it be to fit one person on a plane? Especially one who can fit just about anywhere.) I hope I can go. I'm also crossing my fingers and praying that I get the job I want, but I kinda have to go see the people first. 

Also, I've got 2(ish) finals today. My horse lecture and my 2D design class. In the horse class, it's actually a test so I need to study. In 2D, we're turning in a project and cleaning...or something. So no studying required. Tomorrow I've got the worst test of all: Bible. Why? Because my professor is wicked hard. So lots of studying this afternoon.

Oh how I wish

I could go ahead and start living. Yeah it'd be nice to have my degree in art before I do go off and live, but I really, really, really want to go and own my own horse, my two dogs, my own house with a huge pasture and a large tree to eat lettuce with my horse under, and I want to go swim with fish. For serious. (Not in a dress though, as seen in the picture below :P) I've just recently gotten a bit annoyed with the human-race and want to escape them and only have minimal neighbors and live in the country.

*Sigh* wouldn't it be lovely...

Oh and by the by, in one of these next few blogs, I'ma design my own house, cause I'm crazy like that.

Peter Pan

Is my future husband. I deem it thus.

I've wanted the Peter Pan movie on DVD for my birthday, but apparently, when I went to Target and Walmart, Disney had put it back in the "Disney Vault." I just about freaked out. So that night I went and bought it on and it arrived in the mail today! Yay! Hah, I'm such a 4 year old, I know. But I love my Disney classics :D
I also watched it today when I should have been studying. (I'm also writing this...and should be studying for an exam I have in about 2 1/2 hours.) After watching this movie, I realized that my poor corrupt brain saw things in the movie that just aren't right for a young child to be watching, but alas, I love it anyway.

As for my future husband, I plan on kidnapping the Peter Pan at Disney Land and taking him back to Texas. If you watch this you'll understand why people consider him one of the best Peter Pans. He sounds just like the kid. Unfortunately he's a little...short, but we can make it work :P

GAH he's just so handsome.

I can has?

August's Rhapsody

Is phenomenal. I seriously forget to breathe when I listen to it. I've added it to my music thing down at the bottom of my page so y'all can hear what it is I'm talking about. It's from the movie "August Rush." I'm a sucker for soundtracks and it's been a while since I've heard this one and blasting it in my ears (even though it's bad for them) just gives me such thrill. I'm a nerd, I know :P

Last night the girls went to see our friend's senior recital. She sang marvelously! I love our dear Anna. I have faith she will go far in life with that fabulous voice of hers. After Anna's recital, the girls and I went to Walmart and browsed around and I stumbled upon this adorable little dress for only $14. I thought it was cute, being the sucker for plaid I am so I bought it.

 But, being the girl I am I made a quick decision and realized I don't have boots that would match this! My boots I own currently are kind of a dark turquoise and didn't match at all. So I think I might go get these today. What do you think? Do these match?  

I might have to take the dress with me to Cavenders to find out. I think they will, personally. The boots are pretty cheap for being boots. I'm pretty excited. I also want my hair to grow out a whole lot more than it is, but I'm not taking good care of it and I'm not taking my vitamins to help it along. Grr! Why is it so hard for me to get into the habit of something? I have no idea. Boo. 

Any who. I best get back into finishing up all the homework and projects for school considering I have a week left and some are due in less than a week. Yippee.  I've gotten pretty far in my book I need to read for my horse class so I hope to finish that today and then write the summary about it and turn that in before I wrap things up for the day. I'm waiting on one recommendation letter and then I'll be able to turn in my application. I hope I get the job for my sophomore year...I'm in desperate need of one. 

Where'd my phone go...?

Oh College

Well I've made it through my first year of college! Okay, almost. I've survived classes, now I get to trek through all the exams which honestly shouldn't be too hard. I've got quite a bit to do though now that I think about it. I hope y'all don't mind me using this as my to do list.

Let's see...
  • I need to turn in my job application once I get my recommendation letters
  • I've got to make a collage project for my 2D art class (What? A project? I thought classes were over. Yup...they are...)
  • Also, for that same class I have to revise two paragraphs and turn those in as my final.
  • Study for Speech
  • Study for English
  • Study for Horsemanship class
  • Read a book and write a summary for my horse class
  • Study for Basic Drawing
  • Study for Bible
  • Pack
  • Get the last bit of my mail from my mailbox
  • Pack some more
Not in that order, of course, and I'm sure I've forgotten a few things, but those I remember. I have loved being at ACU and I have both good and bad memories from this year. I'm looking forward to this summer, though, even though I'll be working and taking summer courses. I hope to get a chance to ride this summer. Since I don't own a horse I don't have the leisure to ride which saddens me because I have such a passion for horses and it brings me great thrill (and I still believe that they have magic powers). Positive news is that if I get the job I want I'll be a stable hand at a horse boarding place that's like two seconds from my house and maybe if the owner of the boarding likes me enough she'll let me ride every once in a while, but I'll just have to wait and see where God wants me. 

Well, as I often say, the best way to get started is to get started, so...I think I'll start reading my book first. We need to read 300 pages and write a one page summary...yippee.
