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.

My parents sleep with a nightlight – you’ve got nothing to worry about! If someone you don’t like asks why, tell them you don’t want to accidentally run into things, especially since your house is literally in the middle of nowhere with no street lights coming in.

I’m not sure how useful a money saver blog would be, but I would love to read a few posts on finding money saving tips. I am very bad at catching sales and probably pay full price for things that I shouldn’t have to pay full price for.

Answers to questions:
1. A computer scientist that plays with robots.
2. I’d rather have $10 through Paypal. Same value as a domain name, except that I don’t really want any more domains.
3. I read your blog because you are awesome. You also have a life that’s extremely different from my own, and you live in a place that’s very different from LA, so I learn a lot too!
4. Yes, but I’m not commenting from my usual IP address – I’ll email you my usual IP, which I won’t be at until January because of the holidays.
5. Trash = banana peels. =P
6. I-T
7. I’d have to say “Enough to go by” by Vienna Teng. The artist is a Taiwanese-American like me, but has been very rebellious in her career choices. That song’s lyrics reflect something that I will do someday, but am not sure how or when.
8. I actually haven’t a clue. I am fortunate to say that I have few pet peeves.

Thank you soo much Liz!! 😀

Aww the holidays are like the best part of the year lol. For me it’s mostly because there’s no school so life is wonderful. 😀

Joining the raffle! 😀

I’m hosting a raffle soon. Would you rather win $10-$15 via PayPal or a .org domain name (via NameCheap)?
PayPal all the way lol.

Trash is unwanted.
Can you spell it?
Spell what?
What is your favorite song, who is the artist, and why is it your favorite?
Right now it’s It will Rain by Bruno Mars. I love a song that I can relate to.
What is your biggest pet peeve? When a question is answered with “huh?”

I have absolutely no concept of gas prices anymore since I haven’t had a car in over six years. I drove across the country at one point last year and I distinctly remember being sad that I had no concept of the relative prices and barely noticed them. It’s strange how long I can talk about gas prices…

  1. A mother.
  2. Money.
  3. Because you write interesting things sometimes. The same reason I read any of the blogs I read.
  4. I’d like more information about this secret blog.
  5. Trash is the stuff you want to get rid of.
  6. Trash.
  7. What I’m Trying to Say – Stars. It’s my favorite because it encapsulates my inability to express love.
  8. Selfish people.

I am scared of the dark, too. I don’t sleep with a night light anymore, but that’s really just something that I’ve forced myself to do so I wouldn’t look like a wuss at sleepovers or things like that. When the power goes out, you bet I’m running to find my mom with a flashlight. 😛 It’s funny, the things we do to fit in…

I can also related to music. I used to take piano lessons, sing in choir, everything music music music. I still love music, it’s just not as important to me as it used to be. I quite my piano lessons, dropped choir… But those things happen.

  1. Oh this question… haha. I’m not sure exactly. I’ve narrowed it down to two things: being an elementary school teacher or going into international business. Two very different things, I realize. 😛
  2. I would prefer the $10-15 PayPal because I already have a domain.

  3. I read your blog quite often, I just rarely comment. I like your perspective on things and your honesty. You’re not afraid to share what you think. I like that. 🙂

  4. Yes, I’d enjoy the password to your secret blog. ^^

  5. Hmmm, I had to think on this for a moment. I think I would define trash as simply something we don’t need or want anymore. If we still wanted it, we’d keep it. But we don’t, so we throw it away.

  6. it? i-t.

  7. Ahh, I can’t name just one favorite song. But, I’ll list one of my favorites: To Make You Feel My Love, by Adele. Not originally by her, but I love her version. So raw and true.

  8. When people interrupt. It’s so rude, and it drives me crazy. It just shows they don’t care what you have to say and that they think what they have to say is more important. It’s just rude. I hate it.

Btw, I love the snow falling on your layout. 🙂

I also sleep with a night light, ha! It’s not for me, though. It’s for my kitten that lives in my bedroom so he doesn’t get scared in the dark at night. I’m such a nice cat owner. :’) :’)

  1. What do you want to be when you grow up (you’re never too old for this question)? A journalist or web designer.
  2. I’m hosting a raffle soon. Would you rather win $10-$15 via PayPal or a .org domain name (via NameCheap)? A .org domain name!

  3. If you are a returning visitor, why do you read my blog (honesty, please)? I enjoy reading your blogs! 🙂

  4. If you want the link to my secret blog, say “yes” to this question. Whatever IP address associated with this comment will be added to the allowed readers list, and you will be e-mailed the link to it. Keep in mind that this does not guarantee you a place on the allowed readers list (no there’s not a particular number allowed). Only if you want me to read it. 😛

  5. Define trash. (Your answer may be used in an upcoming theme; more than one answer to/for this is okay.) Rubbish, garbage, old stuff that has no use anymore, smelly stuff, etc.

  6. Can you spell it? I-T

  7. What is your favorite song, who is the artist, and why is it your favorite? Blood by The Middle East. Such a great song.

  8. What is your biggest pet peeve? When you hand someone something and they touch your hand. Ew. Gross.

Take care! 🙂

You’re right, being single isn’t that bad. I’m enjoying all the attention I’ve been receiving LOL.

UGH, I hate allergies! Hopefully they leave you alone, haha. Yeah, gas is REALLY expensive these days, but that’d cool that you have a card that saves you money 😀 Especially this month. Blah, I know what you mean! Shopping at this time is CRAZY, I can’t imagine working in a busy, busy store.
Ew, I hate the dark too! I never used to, but now it creeps me out, I leave my TV on lol.

Are we supposed to answer these in a comment? I hope so because I’m going to!
1. I want to be a Registered Nurse.
2. 10-15$
3. It’s my first time here, but I do enjoy reading peoples blogs, I’m not sure why haha
7. It will rain, Bruno Mars. I’m not sure why its my favourite. I like the way he sings it, and I guess I kind of relate to it in a way. I just love Bruno Mars haha
8. When you’re talking and someone cuts you off, and keeps talking and talking, especially when you find time to continue, but they start talking again -.-

I can’t drive so I don’t even know what gas prices are here. But I know they’re not cheap! I don’t actually see too much holidays cheer around here especially not in my house because everyone’s going away for Christmas except me.

I always censor myself on my blog. I know it’s a public blog and people read it so I don’t give away the details of details. I’m also afraid that my mom would discover it but I think I’ll risk that. Maybe change the name I go by … hmm.

  1. I want to be a 3D animator! That’s not happening since I’m studying sociology.
  2. I’d say a .org domain name since I miss mine so much.
  3. I think your entries are interesting and not typical!
  4. Yes. Though my IP changes all the time.
  5. Umm … ugg boots + mini jean skirts
  6. I-T
  7. Michingeoni by Song Ji Eun, which you definitely never heard of. Everything just works out so well. Even people who don’t listen to K-pop seem to love it.
  8. Americans who assume Asian guys are gay for wearing skinny jeans or acting gay. It’s not like the Asian guys know that’s considered gay in America.

[…] dig up something new for you all to know, especially if you happened to have read my attempt at the 100 facts about me meme way back […]
