Getting caught up!

Alright fore-warning I'm gonna get caught up on 4 days of missed blogging in one post so its gonna be a hefty post and since I'm on my work computer the pictures are going to be few and far between but the fact that I'm writing is all that matters right?! RIGHT! I've had a horrible week and what I'm sure will be a horrible weekend but what can you do, life happens right, gotta keep my head up and keep moving.

So the last thing I blogged about was my favorite TV show so today I will be writing about my favorite book, my favorite quote, whatever tickles my fucking fancy, and a favorite photo...which I'll need to find. So I'm gonna write this little ditty down and then take a little break and find a picture and get my wits about me.

**jeopardy theme music** (imagine if it was on a loop) 10 minutes computer is being a butt munch and won't let me find my favorite I guess I'll just update that bit when I'm at home.

BAM just kidding I fixed my computer and now we're in business....lets start!


Okay this one is easy! My favorite book is Memoirs of a Geisha, if you haven't read that book I suggest you close the browser and go to a library or book store and get on that shit.

The book is just what it seems...the memoirs...of a geisha. It was made into a movie, ignore that, that movie blew ass.


Okay whilst surfing the internet trying to find my favorite quote on a pretty picture or something interesting I found a quote that while not being my favorite really hits home for me as of late.
I've been going through a time in my life where I'm not exactly sure who I am or what I want to be but this quote just give me hope that someday I'll know all those answers and I can finally start to live my life the way I want.

But really my favorite quote is "Trust is everything." and it truly is because like the above quote says, you can't even live your own life the way you want until you trust yourself and you can't be with anyone else the way you want until you trust them.


Well really right now its less of what tickles my fancy and more of something I feel like I need to write about explain a little. Everyone warns you when you start working with elders that you can't get attached because they are in these places to die and they will and if you get attached you'll be sad, well its do get attached but how can you NOT?! When you see these people everyday and they walk by your desk and talk to you.

I'm saying this because one of the old ladies that I was close to passed away and I'm completely destroyed, that woman was one of the nicest people to roam this earth and right now as I type this they are doing her memorial service in the living room and I've never seen a turn-out this big. They expected about 15 or 20 of the residents and I think pretty much all of them are in that room right now.

She was one of the most loved people and I'll always remember her walking down the hall with her tabasco sauce in her back pocket and watering the flowers.

Love you Ms. Amelia R.I.P.

Okay and now on to something a bit more happy!

A favorite photo...I'm not sure if this is a general favorite photo or a favorite photo that I took but I'm choosing the latter (spelling?)

I know this isn't really anything speical but I love this photo. I took it when I was in London in the summer of 2009. We were going past Big Ben and being the tourist that I am I already had about a thousand pictures but I felt like I needed one more so I turned around and snapped this picture then later looked at it and realized that fence made the perfect accent.

It's pictures like these that make me realize the beauty in the ordinary, and it was so easy to capture that beauty in europe and I hope one day to move there, that'd be freaking sweet.


Alright I've done my job and gotten caught up on all this and I'm sure writing for 4 days in one post is against the rules but I don't care!

Day 3! Oh my god, what does this mean?! Anyways on to Day 3 of the BLOG FOR 30 DAYS CHALLENGE!

Favorite TV show...easiest question ever.

If you know me but AT ALL, you'll know my favorite TV show is Sex and the City!

I remember the first time I was ever introduced to this gem of a show. I had come home from a friends house and it was the evening and my parents were watching HBO....I walk into the living room just as a pretty raunchy sex scene comes on and I'm like "WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING?! Stop watching porn."

I was grossed out, then I started to sit down with my parents and watch the show (awkward) and I realized its about so much more than sex! So great.

Well I was gonna skip today because I wasn't really feeling up to writing much but I decided I'm on a roll I better keep it going!

Nobody Puts Baby in the Corner!

Oh HOT DAMN! Two days in a row, I believe this is some kind of record. So day 2 of this blogging**drum roll** FAVORITE MOVIE.

Well just like yesterday I'm gonna list my top 3 movies in if you are a good kid just read the #1 movie and ignore the rest, if you're a rebel read them all. Take a chance.

So ladies....and well lady, because I'm sure only one person reads this....lets DOOOO IT!

#1 Movie of ALL FREAKING TIME! DIRTY FUCKING DANCING....okay so its not called dirty dancing its called Dirty Dancing and its fucking fabulous (please excuse the language).

Seriously I mean who doesn't LOVE this contains everything! Romance, adventure, music, comedy...lets be honest that's all you really need.

The acting leaves a little to be desired but this movie is from 1987 so really we can't complain...and Patrick Swayze was a FOX in that movie!

Okay lets movie on (get it?! its like MOVE! Only MOVIE cuz we're talking about movies.....?.....huh......shut up) the number 2 movie took me a second because I already have 2 pictures saved on my computer that I can use...and I had to ask myself, both of these movies are equally fantastic but which have I seen more?

Here it is ladies....Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls. If you haven't seen this movie go drown yourself, its great. Hilarious! If you don't find Jim Carey funny then I can't help you because you obviously have absolutely no sense of humor....oh man....goooood times.

Now the third movie I'm not even gonna defend because most people I know hate this movie so I'll simply post a picture and leave it at that. Judge me or not!

double rainbow all the way across the sky

I think I'm gonna start writing again in this dang blog. There is just so much going on in my life (sarcasm) I have absolutely no free time to just sit around (sarcasm).

Apparently sarcasm isn't well recieved over the internet. The truth is that during the week I pretty much do nothing but sit why not start blogging about the things that happen in my life? The only person who's blog I read regularly is Jess's and she does cute little challenges and fill in the blank days, and lets be honest I'm nowhere near clever enough to do those in any interesting manner, but I am gonna try!

Sooooo first off, let me first say I'm doing this at work because I was supposed to be doing a little project for the business manager but he decided not to show up today, so I spent some time reading Living Judaism, then spent some time starting the project, aka putting in resident names into a spreadsheet (took about 6 and a half minutes)...then I read some more...then I surfed the web...and now I'm blogging! (I get paid money to do all this yee-haw)

OH! Some things that are/will be taking up some of my time are my Intro to Judaism class which......

20 minutes later...

Sorry about that some old lady needed help sorting her mail which she hadn't gotten out of the mailbox since like June. Crazy old folks, I love em...

ANYWAY I was saying my Intro to Judaism class lasts for 6 the the end of which I hope to convert. Yeehaww..

Also...I'm going back to school, at the community college by my house so I can get my pre-reqs out of the way so I can go to nursing school...cuz I love the old folk and if I'm a nurse I can make more money and work with the old folk. Cheeee haw.

Now on to more important things like the 30 day BLOGGING CHALLENGE...dun dun dunnnn.

Basically, there are thirty prompts, each day there is a different prompt...and you write (or blog if you will) about each prompt...therefore you are blogging each day for thirty days. What a concept.

So I'm gonna list all of the prompts here so it looks like this post is a lot longer than it actually is!!

Day 02 — Your favorite movie
Day 03 — Your favorite television program
Day 04 — Your favorite book
Day 05 — Your favorite quote
Day 06 — Whatever tickles your fancy

Day 08 — A photo that makes you angry/sad
Day 09 — A photo you took
Day 10 — A photo of you taken over ten years ago
Day 11 — A photo of you taken recently
Day 12 — Whatever tickles your fancy
Day 13 — A fictional book
Day 14 — A non-fictional book
Day 15 — A fanfic
Day 16 — A song that makes you cry (or nearly)
Day 17 — An art piece (painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.)
Day 18 — Whatever tickles your fancy
Day 19 — A talent of yours
Day 20 — A hobby of yours

Day 29 — Hopes, dreams and plans for the next 365 days
Day 30 — Whatever tickles your fancy

Holy CRAPOLI thats a whole lotta bloggin' Lets see if I can do it. I highly doubt I will but A for effort right.

Okay so Day 1 is supposed to be my FAVORITE SONG!

Well to be honest I'm not the kind of girl who has a favorite song, mostly I have a favorite song for about 2 weeks, during which I listen to that song NON-STOP. And right now that song is....The Double Rainbow song...from the youtube guys who do Autotune the News...its so funny that I listen to it constantly...the lyrics annoy everyone around me, except my pseudo little brother Tyler who sings along with me, but I don't care!

Well I would write more about the song but lets be honest, I already wrote enough above so I say I'm DONE!

Well...its been fun...that didn't waste as much time as I hoped it would but alas. Hopefully my other blog posts will be a lot better if Jess would tell me where she gets all her awesome pictures! Then mine too will be full of pictures! And maybe even glitter...if I can manage it I'll put glitter right into this blog.

Okay. Krystal out.

Lend me your ears...

Well its been a while since I've wrote anything. So I guess I can get you caught up to date on my life...because its SO fascinating and you are all just dying to know what I do! 

ANYWAYS, I am now on anti-depressants, thats of course when I get medicine I do extensive research and am fully aware of all the side-effects, even the most rare. Part of me is glad to know these side-effects because I will be aware of them if they happen to crop up, the other part of me freaks out every time I get a headache like OH FUCK MY BRAIN IS IMPLODING. THE PROZAC!!! So thats not good. However I did realize that taking it at night is NOT an option for me, because it fucks with my sleep schedule like none other and if you know me at all you know that I love sleep. Sleep is number one on the things I love...followed closely by food. 

Okay so now on to this little thingy-ma-bob that Jess tagged me in. 

Here's the rules...

1. List 6 things you are a master in...
2. Pass it on to 6 bloggers you think are masters of friendship, and make blogging so awesome. (That sounds like someone pulled that straight out of their ass..."masters of friendship" give me a BREAK...couldn't it just say "tag 6 people to do this" and plus I don't know 6 bloggers so I won't be tagging anyone...I'm just a bucket of sunshine today huh?)

OKAY 6 THINGS I'M A MASTER IN...other than breaking hearts and taking names. Just kidding...or am I?!

1. I like to think I'm a master in video games from my childhood. Notice how I said CHILDHOOD...I suck at modern video games. HOWEVER, I kick ass in games like Mario and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...and one of my favorites Sonic. So yes video games like that I am a master! Or video games similar to those such as Spyro and Crash Bandicoot...and Jak and Daxter (except that game was hard as SHIT).

2. I'm a master of cuddling. Especially if the other party is a cat. I cuddle my cat like it's my job. Wouldn't that be awesome? To get paid to cuddle a cat.

3. And leading directly from cuddling...sleeping. I am THE master at sleeping. Not just A master...THE master. I could sleep ALL damn day. Here's how much I am a master, if I get less than 9 hours of sleep I'm a cranky mess. On a normal night I get at least 10 hours. I've slept so much of my life away and I don't even care.

4. Wouldn't it be clever if I said "Not completing things" and stopping it here...ah such the cheap way out...and I'm not one to not complete things so that would be a lie.

I am literally looking around my room at stuff thinking...what am I a 'master' in...this is sooooo sad.

Real number 4. Kristen Stewart at the end of "Twilight" impression. It took practice and patience and watching my friend Kim do it multiple times. But I've perfected it and according to my pseudo little brother Tyler it's "oscar worthy". Ask for it sometime, its worth a laugh, but then again so is Kristen Stewart.

5. Singing in my car. Yes I can be a master in that, don't question my choices. It takes skill to sing in your car with the exuberance that I do, having that kind of performance and driving a car without dying is one of the most skillful assets a person can possess. 

6. Getting distracted on the internet. I love this new toolbar I downloaded called click "stumble" and it takes you to some random website based on interests you enter. It's horrible addicting. Please don't download it, it'll ruin you. I just spent like 30 minutes "stumbling" instead of writing this.

That's all folks, I can't do it anymore, my brain hurts. I'm really not a master in anything so these were me taking small talents and pretending I'm a master. I'm a master at pretending. Tomorrow I shall find a quiz that's so basic it'll make your brain explode from the boring-ness. Yes that's a word. 

Peace out girl scout.

Past couple of days...

Where to start? Oh yes I have 2 days off! Monday (today) and tomorrow so thats always good. Anyways on sunday I had agreed to hang out with a old college friend Dane because he lives near lakewood and I haven't seen him in ages. 

So we met up at Chili's and had a margarita and I got my love (CAJUN CHICKEN PASTA) I could eat that stuff everyday if I could afford it. Anyways we caught up, talked about life and such, then we decided we still wanted to hang out so where better to go then Holiday Lanes on Colfax and Kipling. The most ghetto bowling alley on the earth. So away we go to meet Dane's friend Andy and Andy's girlfriend Laura. It was a lot of fun except I suck at bowling but let's be honest that makes its MORE fun. I had a great time and got to talk to Andy about his brother who lives in LA doing acting. That's the latest I've stayed out in a long time because usually at night I kinda just sit inside and read. 

Well today, I expected myself to sleep till noon then take my mom to work at 1:30 cuz Art was out with her car. But alas, the phone woke me up at 10:15 so I got to eat taco bell which I've also been craving (why am I not 4000 pounds?!). Well I took my dogs with me cuz they love to go 'bye bye'. Zeus barked at the drive-thru guy. GOOOD times. Then Art got home early so I asked Stacey if she wanted to come along while I ran some errands. I had to go pick up my tips at the car wash and go get some spot treatment for acne that I read about. Well I got the tips then we decided to go into the Vietnamese supermarket by the car wash because I've always been curious about what's in there. So we went in and the first thing I see is a GIANT FAMILY SIZE PACK OF.....KOALA YUMMIES. Only in this case they were pandas but it was the exact same thing. Biggest box I've EVER seen...for 5 dollars. I didn't get it but now I know where to find them! Not sure if anyone else ate these as a kid...I miss them.

This is a picture of the strawberry ones but the chocolate ones were the best! OH MAN!

Well we continued to look around because it was interesting and we kept getting weird looks because we were the ONLY white people in the place. We found aloe water which had like floaties in it. GROSS. And then we also found like 2 aisles devoted to ramen like products. We finally decided to leave when we had the feeling the employees were following us.

Then we headed to Ulta. Where I found the spot treatment stuff but it was 12 bucks and I didn't want to take the chance that it wouldn't work so I skipped that and we spent like an hour sniffing perfumes. I decided to head to Target and just get a cheap spot treatment then I could buy myself something pretty in the mall, and maybe some peanut butter chocolate covered pretzels from whole foods (if you haven't tried these I HIGHLY suggest that you do, your life will never be the same)

SPOT TREATMENT BOUGHT. 5 bucks! ALL RIGHT! That's what I'm talking about. Then we head out into the mall and go into Forever 21...oh my I love Forever 21. I see a very pretty floral dressy thing in the window but couldn't find it in the store so I gave up and kept walking. Then we stopped and looked at the ripoff sunglasses booth and the lady would not stop following me and suggesting sunglasses. Then my step-dad called and pointed out that it was nearly 4 so I freaked out and thought it was time to go but I stopped in Forever 21 on the way back because I couldn't let this cute thing pass me by. It's totally not my style but its so springy and cute...and it was only $17.80 so I gave in and bought it! I lovvvvveeeeee it!

Please ignore my DISGUSTING room...Isn't this precious...meh I love it. 

Here is a close-up of the top with the flower's. YAY love it.

Anyways then I went to therapy and blah blah blah! END OF DAY!

Now I shall read my book and watch Sex and the City!
