Life Update + 100 Facts About Me 69-78
I’m exhausted. It’s 1:16am, and I can’t sleep. I arrived home almost two hours ago – maybe two hours point five hours. I showered only thirty minutes ago – my hair is wet because of it – and my allergies are picking on me, causing me to sneeze, and just pick-picking.
I never actually paid any attention to the gas prices until I actually had to pay for it myself. Wal-Mart currently has a ten-cent off deal (as long as you’re using a Wal-Mart shopping card) per gallon of gas you buy (it’s seven cents greater of a saver than the usual three cents off per gallon with a WM shopping card). The other day I was thinking about how lucky I am to get to watch it go up and down (and take advantage of the cheap gas as much as possible) like I do every day I go in to work.
I can easily say I am ready for the holidays to be over, too. All of this holiday cheer is driving me crazy. It makes people crazy – which is who/what I see every day at work, and supposedly it only gets worse. I’m not looking forward to any of it MINUS my paychecks. I AM looking forward to those quite heavily. 😉
Anyway, I’m going to take advantage of trying to complete this meme here…
#69 I sleep with a nightlight. I’m honestly afraid of the dark. I try not to be in front of people I hardly know and/or people most likely to make fun of me because of it, but I also try my hardest to not care. Sometimes not caring works and sometimes fearing others’ opinions of my fear of the dark happens.
#70 Whilst on the topic of my fears, I am also afraid of police officers. It’s a long story, but the fear developed from merely two – or just one. However you wish to interpret this is completely fine with me; maybe I will share the history behind this later on. I do have another blog, but unless you’re on the “VIP” list1 you’re not going to be able to read anything for the most part.
#71 I hate it when I feel the need to censor myself, especially on my blog. I shouldn’t feel like I have to. I shouldn’t have to worry about any kind of drama happening if I write about what I feel. Offline I tend to be put down for my thoughts and feelings as if they are wrong (most times). Having to censor myself like this also tends to make me feel really depressed. It’s an awful feeling, believe me.
#72 I am considering making a “money saver” blog. With links to coupons, great deals, etc. I don’t know if it would be appreciated or not, though – mostly because of the fact that I’m pretty sure there isn’t a blogger I’m connected with close to the area I am in. However, I suppose it would be pretty easy to share some of the ways I can go into the store with $50 dollars and only spend about $15, or something like that.
#73 When Brookshire’s was doing their Thanks A Million game/contest thing in 2010, Mama Lois was here (at Mimi’s) thanks to in-home care. I had gone to the store to buy some diaper wipes for my mom and Mimi for her since they didn’t have any (the wipes were obviously used for multiple purposes). I bought her the Johnson & Johnson brand because I trusted them the most to actually be soft so they wouldn’t be like the other diaper wipes the in-home care place gave us (they tore, were really sticky, etc.). I also bought them because I remember her saying that she doesn’t trust any diaper wipe brand but Johnson & Johnson. I just couldn’t buy another brand when her favorite brand was right there, staring at my face.
#74 I wish I had a scanner – and a printer. You know, my OWN. It would, after all, make my life SO much easier when it comes to me needing either of those two electronics. I’m serious.
#75 Remember how I mentioned that I wanted to start vlogging? Well, I have yet to start that whole thing. D: I’m so horrible when it comes to that, haha. HOWEVER, I am trying my best to avoid the question, “Sarah, are you talking to yourself?” Therefore, I will vlog whenever I can do so in private and WITHOUT being listened to. It just seems awkward to me. …Not that there is anything wrong with talking to yourself; I talk to myself all of the time, and I am amazingly alright.
#76 I kind of feel like such a nerd for enjoying playing on Microsoft Excel. The formulas, the color coding – all of that just amuses me. Then again, I AM easily amused, right?
#77 I used to be big on music, but I’m not anymore. Aside from that, my music variety varies from time to time and depends solely on whatever I hear/come across that I actually like. I suppose you could say that I am kind of picky, too.
#78 You probably already knew this, but I grow frustrated easily and quickly. I’d tell you all about it, but the family I dealt with [insert night here] frustrated me more than I’ve ever been before.
