17 August 2014 High/Lows

Low: Work was a little stressful but it wasn’t awful today; I was just signing/hardlines.

High: Aundrea absolutely maaaade my day. I was over at guest service and she just told me that she really appreciated me helping her out all the time with her schedule and everything, and she said I was doing a good job. It just meant a lot and I almost started tearing up :)

Low: Work was a stress fest. Tiff and I got in trouble for telling Anthony that he needed to call in since he hadn’t shown up. Just dumb stuff all day.

High: Spent the evening with Marinda which was lovely :)

15 August 2014 High/Lows

The whole day was just one big high. Mum and I got our hair cut in Sac and then went to Macy’s to get an outfit for me to wear in Mel’s wedding. I ended up getting a pencil skirt for $8, a cute top, a little crop top, a fun jacket, and a gorrrrrrgeous white dress. Then we had lunch at Elephant Bar where Mom accidentally put her eyeliner on as lip liner haha. Then we went to Starbucks and headed home.
I went over to Tiff’s later for a lil’ girl’s night with her and Courtney. We had a spider incident which resulted with Tiffany on her kitchen counters handing me a bottle of Lysol and yelling to me “Spray the hell out of it!!!” We just spent the night drinking mojitos and chatting. It was really fun :)
Spent the night over at Sabrina’s where she, Jon, and I shared their bed haha.


just remembered that last night I woke up and hallucinated that my ceiling fan was actually a spider. a spider the size of a ceiling fan. imagine how terrible that is to see.

Morgan. This reminded me of your spider hallucinations.


I love when you become so close with someone that you can see parts of each other in one another and you begin to say the same things and steal lines from one another and have a similar sense of humor and can exchange an inside joke with just a glance you don’t even have to talk because you have such a strong connection with them and you can sit in comfortable silence but also talk for hours it’s really hard to find that kind of compatibility

High:  Tiffany calling me this morning to wake up/ask if I wanted Dutch Bros.  I would have been late to work if she had not have called.  Instead of snoozing my alarms, I turned them off :/  Going to bed at 4am was not the best idea.

Low:  Finding out that someone took credit for a design I made back in May for Anberlin’s song “Dissenter” and seeing that Stephen Christian had liked it and then shared it on his/Anberlin’s Facebook pages.  Not cool.  I’m really upset about it.  The only thing I ask for is credit.  That’s it.  It’s copyrighted. End of story.  It’s just really discouraging.

From yesterday - 

High:  Went out with Ryan, Cory, Neal, K-Slus, Lorna, Carissa, Marinda, and Ben to Tres last night.  We all got a little tipsy/drunk and had a good time.  Went to Argus afterward and played Cards Against Humanity with Patrick, Bobby Ray Bans, AJ, and Cory’s girl Whitney.  Went to Panama’s after that, and One Mile to go skinny dipping after closing time.  It was a really super fun time :)

Low:  Not being the bright light that I know I am/should be.
