Life Update #8

I feel so blah, and I keep changing my mind. I make a decision, and then I have the sudden urge to change it. I’m struggling with ambiguity lately, but I think that has to do with the drama in my life and the fact that I’m so exhausted.

I suppose a dollop of good news is that I made fifteen bucks watching Ezzie and Ruby last night for a few hours whilst my/our dad and Kim went out on a date. I actually like babysitting for them because they don’t take advantage of me doing it. I don’t babysit often, but anyways. It’s still nice (even though I spent most of it trying to not get bit).

A dash of dreary news is that I have no idea what I did to my eye(s), but they feel like they’re stinging, especially the right one. I’m not sure if I rubbed my eye after I put hand sanitizer on my hands, if they’re just dry and/or if I’m just tired.

I spend the last two days watching New Girl. Zooey Deschanel is so adorable! I thought she was adorable before, but I really adore her in this series! I also want her hair. Er, I want the style. I’ve always wanted my hair to have that kind of hairstyle. I’ve also been sleeping. Lots of sleeping has been going on with me lately.

Lastly, I’ve been so abnormally annoyed at people recently. It’s nothing personal; it’s me, not you (and no, this isn’t a break up).

I also need to invest in some headphones. Again. I seem to go through these every six months, and the ones that came with my iPod Nano lasted me years. But they’re too expensive in stores for me right now. Thus, either dollar store headphones that cost $1 or a funky headphone brand that comes in multiple colors from Walmart for around seven or eight bucks. And the dollar store is closer, because this is the city and we just have a green Walmart. As in a grocery Walmart. Its self-checkout isles make me look stupid.

What have you been up to?

Sorry, but comments are closed on this post.

Making money is always a good thing! As for headphones, I get mine at a local flea market and they only cost a dollar, so I vote for the dollar store headphones. If they work and they’re cheap it doesn’t really matter to me if they need to be replaced in a year. A buck a year for my music habit is pretty affordable.

I get into that annoyed state as well. I think it’s normal depending on what’s going on in our own lives. I wouldn’t apologize for it. People should understand we can’t always be sunshine and rainbows.

Well, I slept almost the whole week away…which means that I am seriously behind in the revamping of my domain, LDC. But it’s not that big of a deal, as hardly anyone visits my site anyways. 😛 My general mood this past week has been really similar to yours…blah. Of course, this may be due to the fact that I have cut out both soda and junk food from my diet, making me very crabby. I also need to get some new headphones…my hot pink ones have gotten smashed, and my over-the-ear ones have a short in the wire. 🙁 I don’t know if I have a green Wal-Mart in my hometown…we have a grocery, but it kind of sucks. Oh, and I have the beginning of a migraine. But other than that, I am great. 🙂 I hope things improve for you!

Yay for making a few extra bucks for babysitting! It’s pretty relaxing overall and it’s fun [depending on whom you’re working with.] But based on your description, are they pets? You said “trying to not get bit.”
Rubbing some hand sanitizer does cause irritation, so let’s hope it’s just that and nothing else. For the most part, you can sleep it off and hope that you produce enough tears to rid itself of the pain eventually.
A green Walmart? Those are pretty rare in Houston. Then again, we do have other grocery stores nearby, which may explain why.

Nothing much on my end except school started. Okay, I invested on a new computer, which is [some may call it] a big deal given its purpose.

@Agent Q,

They’re kids; Baby Z is growing in his teeth and going through that biting phase babies go through.

Lol. Isn’t a breakup! That was funny! 😛

Maybe you are PMSing or have PMDD on top of everything else? That’s why I have been abnormally going off on people recently…or at least I think that is why. Haven’t set up a doctor’s appointment yet for that. I need to….

Anyway, I go through headphones so fast that I have 3 pairs right now. When I actually use headphones seems like I go through them once a month if not once every 2 months. It is ridiculous…but hey, at least I USE them and don’t LOSE them. Lol.

Recently I’ve been working and working on school. Blah. My life is boring. I’ll blog about any other updates. Good to hear you are doing better though. 🙂 <3

@Erin Nicole, I’m not PMSing. This annoyance has been building up over time. I don’t like people already, so.

Babysitting always sounded like it would be a right of passage as a teenage girl, but it never happened with me. Nice to be making money, though!

I got my headphones at a local office supply store, and they were this pleasant surprise; they were super stylish, super cheap and they sounded super good!

Being exhausted is no bueno :(. That causes a lot of unnecessary things to occur like mood swings (for me) or anything of that kind. Congratulations on making some quick buck with babysitting. It’s good to hear that Ezzie and Ruby doesn’t give you too much trouble.

I like that kind of hairstyle too! My hair gets straight after a couple of hours after getting my hair done that way *o*. You go, girl for getting some sleeping done~

Good headphones are worth investing for (I’m not talking about the $200 ones). I still have my Apple earphones from over 3 years ago and it still works like a charm. Good luck with finding some good ones~ I didn’t know “green” Walmarts exist :o. All we have are huge Walmarts *far* away :(.

As for what I’m up to, school is my big thing ;$

Ah I love new girl and Zooey! I love her hair too, and her personality, and her clothing style. I would just like to be her haha. New season starts on Tuesday! Can’t wait. 😀

I have periods where I am extra annoyed by people too. I try not to take it out on them, but it’s really hard sometimes.

I got some really good headphones from Walmart on sale for $5. Or maybe it’s worth just paying the big bucks for something that’s going to last.

I hope you are able to get rested. I think a lot of people are tired right now. Here we blame it on the changing of the season, but I don’t know if that is the same where you are.

That’s nice that you made some money babysitting. I’ve only ever babysat with friends, as there are no young children in my family who we know that well. Hope you succeeded in not getting bit – that doesn’t sound too nice haha.

Sometimes when I use hand sanitizer the smell makes my eyes sting, but that’s only when I used to go a bit overboard and use too much. If you did rub it in your eye that probably wouldn’t have done much good, but at least the problem won ‘t continue.

People are annoying. I sometimes get to the stage where every little thing starts to annoy me, when it never has before, and I start finding it hard to be around people (like my friends and boyfriend, for instance). Everyone just puts it down to ‘That time of the month’ which just makes me more irritated. I don’t know what your situation is in relation to this, but I hope you manage to be less annoyed by people soon – if not at least you can watch New Girl and pretend people don’t exist for a while. It sounds like a good show and Zooey Deschanel’s lovely.

Really cheap headphones never work properly for me. I end up buying them at pound shops (UK equivalent to a dollar store haha) and thinking they’re a great bargain and then they only work for five minutes. But then I hate spending lots of money on them also.
