Work

Feb. 22nd, 2008 | 10:47 pm

Wow... tonight was a truly horrid night. I got to work into a good mood but soon discovered I would be the ONLY waitress working. At first I had confidence that I could handle it, and it seemed that way for a while until a flood of customers came in. Then came the foreigners. And the ditzy blondes. And the drunk college students. My boss agreed to help me out when necessary (he doesn't really do anything anyway besides greet people and hand out menus), so that was nice. But one arrogant woman snapped her fingers at me and impatiently told me "We've been waiting for our sushi for a half an hour!" Well, that's not that uncommon at our restaurant, especially when we were so busy. She got so upset that she canceled her order (which confused the hell out of my korean/japanese boss, as she was in the middle of making the order). Meanwhile, everything in the restaurant was a mess because I didn't get a chance to clean the tables or vacuum or anything. Then six (I think they were drunk..) people came in at about 9:15 (We close at 9:30!) I was so exhausted and could hardly think. But, I got about $98, so I was happy :D Time to sleep!

Icy Winter

Well, it has been a horribly icy winter. And I experienced this first hand, while coming home from a birthday party at around 1 am. I parked my car in the parking lot and just as I climbed out of the door, I slipped and fell on my arm. I was just so tired and hurting, that I just l laid there... then out of nowhere, this voice called to me, asking if I was okay. I then knew someone was watching me, and embarrassed, I lifted myself up with my right arm and looked around for the voice. The man was on his porch, smoking. "It's slippery out." "NO SHIT!" I thought. And then I think he got the message and explained himself; he just stepped outside for a smoke, and witnessed the fall. I made my way up the stairs and painfully took off my boots and went crying to my boyfriend. He was sleeping and sheepishly got up to get me some ice, stuffing some pain reliever into my mouth. We carefully bent the arm to see if it was broken, and it was okay. So, it feels good enough now to do moderate exercise with it. It hasn't bruised at all, which is surprising! Damn this ice~! Tonight, I tried to avoid the pavement by climbing on some big snow mounds, but I slipped all the way down one, nervously looking around for the smoking man @_@

P90X

Feb. 15th, 2008 | 01:18 pm
mood: sore sore

A couple days ago, I started an intense workout program called P90X "Beach Body". My boyfriend and I want to be more physically fit and have healthier diets. So far, it has been brutal. It hurts to sit, lie down, and even hug... and I've only done two workouts so far. We are still determined but I had no idea it would be this painful. But it is nice to be on the system along with someone else. So it's not just me wailing in pain, it's him too :D Well, ever since I started eating a more well-rounded diet, I've felt strange, but good. I think all of the toxins have left my body by now. It hasn't been hard for me to cut back, but it has for my person. This guy used to drink multiple sodas every day, munch on candies and over eat. I am so pleasantly surprised at how well he is doing. He took a trip to the store the first day on the program and came back with assorted fruits and vegetables and even a bottle of Soy-Vanilla-Chai Tea Drink (upon my request). This morning, after working a long third shift, he had a bowl of grapes, a large glass of water, and some slim fast (instead of the 3/4 of a pizza like he usually has o_O). I know we'll start getting stronger and feel better. I love the relaxing yoga and the intense "kempo" routines. My goal is to tone up and narrow my waist (however humanly possible without breaking any ribs) so that I can fit into some smaller brands. It lasts for 90 days, exercising and dieting EVERY day.

SNOW DAY!!!!!!!

Feb. 1st, 2008 | 08:37 am
mood: confused confused

Well, I have a glorious snow day today.  And, I had some major confusion about a particular meta bow.  First, I posted my email to have it sent to me.  Then, another girl posted after me, but for some reason, it looked like she requested the item before me, so I deleted my post.  And my mom's voice kept going through my head, telling me not to spend any more money.  But, the transaction went through and she requested money from me.  Having not checked the topic for some days, I had no idea who was requesting money when I got an email.  I was scared, so I canceled the request.  But then I figured out who it was an sent the amount of money!  Whew!  That was a lot.  I hate to make someone think I wasn't going to pay for something.  I suppose the rule is: if you don't want someone to request money/send the item, DON'T PUT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN A POST.  It's a matter of self-control, which I don't have sometimes.  Those bows are just so cute!  Frontal lobes, AHHHH!

"Cold Day"

Jan. 30th, 2008 | 02:48 pm
mood: chipper chipper

Today school was called off because of the cold temperatures. I am happy but it doesn't make much of a difference because I get out of school at 10:45am anyways... Yeah, I'm VERY lucky. My mom had to hassle to get two releases for me. My mom made me a wonderful breakfast (she didn't have to go to work because she works at a school) and then I went to my boyfriend's apartment to sew my costume (Tira from Soul Calibur 3) and go grocery shopping. My boyfriend and I have decided to start exercising together and eat healthier. We have a lot of fruits and veggies planned to go along with our meals (which will be home-cooked!). Yesterday I delivered my scholarship form for my favorite University (to which I have been accepted). The "judges" will see which scholarships I am eligible for out of a list of 50 or so. I am keeping my fingers crossed! When I was walking through the University's halls, trying to find the admissions office, I was very nervous and felt like people could sense my newbieness... @_@ But, it will be okay. Chances are I'll be sitting in a lab all day :D

The Most Wonderful Loli-Day Ever!

Dec. 9th, 2007 | 12:35 am
mood: ecstatic ecstatic

Today, I met up with the Chicago lolitas. We met at Macy's and everyone was looking adorable. I quickly got over my nervousness, thanks to the kindness of these people. We ate at the Oak Tree, which was delicious. I had a ginger salad with grilled chicken and lime :D Then we traveled to the bookstore, where we explored the manga section ;D and I bought Emma Vol. 1 and 2. I think I will enjoy it. The series is highly recommended. The beloved Sanrio store was next, where we went crazy over all of the cute stuff in there. I bought some writing utensils and stationary, as well as a cute notepad to write my thoughts down. Next, we saw a showing of Enchanted, which was a delightful disney film. It was hilarious and I cried at the sad parts. We were hungry for dessert, so we went to a nice Italian restaurant and got some cheesecake, chocolate cake, and ice cream. The portions were so large- NOM, NOM, NOM! I ate a crapload. Sadly, we had to say our goodbyes, with happiness for our next meeting in our hearts.

I just can't wait for the next time I see my fellow lolis! Maybe I will plan a tea party or picnic in the summer... :D

G&L Business Cards

Dec. 5th, 2007 | 09:40 pm

Last week, I designed some Lolita business cards, in order to inform people about the fashion and expand people's minds by exposing them to a different culture. I will eventually have my friend Lucie draw a cute anime-style lolita on the back of one and then we will scan and print from there :)

Tell me what you think:

Anything I should add? I know it doesn't explain the fashion outright, but it gives people something tangible to take and skedaddle!

Hello!

mood: amused amused
music: The World Without Logos-Hellsing

I have been happy all day today and I don't know why... I guess I'm excited about going to Chicago! Unfortunately, my Onee-chan has to work, so I won't get to see her until after 4:30... This is the first time I will meet her and I am a bit shy and afraid. All the same, I feel bad for her that she has to work on this special day.

Debating on whether or not to take the plunge and meet the chigothlolis by myself, I am scared and unsure.

I'm also not sure what to wear XD. I have this gorgeous new light blue dress...and a cute headdress to go with. But I'm not sure if it will be wintry enough! Plus, I have a red coat named Teddy and a pink purse-and neither of those things match! I'm a bit too compulsive and don't think of these things when buying!

Tomorrow, I will see what grade I got on my Calc test. I am expecting a D... You see, we had to graph these stupid functions with derivatives and second derivatives and crap like that. I didn't know what I was doing. But, the multiple choice part of the test was easier, so maybe that will bring my grade up to a C. I have a D+ in the class XD. At least it's passing! It's senior year, I've already been accepted into the college I wanted to go to, and I got a 25 on the ACT (both of them ^^). I think I needed like a 19 or 20 to get in to the local college. It's funny because every high school student around here thinks that it is a bad college. I don't see the problem with it. It's inexpensive, close to home, AND it's the best in the state for the field I want to go into, which is Biology and Pre-Medicine. I will be so happy to get out of high school, where everyone is immature and can't take tiny differences among people. It's quite irritating.

I remember one day in October, I was wearing a black skirt and tights, along with my trusty pink rocking horse boots (hehe) and was walking to the bathroom. On the way there, some girls in a classroom could be heard laughing hysterically as I passed them. I was thinking, "WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?! I'M NOT EVEN WEARING SOMETHING THAT WEIRD!!! YOU JUST WAIT TILL TOMORROW, then I'll have something weird." To my amazement, on my way back, the two-three girls were giggling again. So I waited, standing down the hall a ways. Then they walked out of the classroom to make fun of me some more! Then, of course, they scurried back into the class... I was a little upset, but it was a bit funny how much they tried to catch a look. I don't know exactly what they were thinking. Is it "in" to laugh uncontrollably when you see a fashion style you like?! XD :D
