It's quite pathetic how I am bored ESPECIALLY since I have a TO DO list the size of TEXAS.
Maybe a more appropriate way to describe what I am currently feeling is to say,
I am bored with my TO DO list.
That's better.
I am over trying to clean my room.
I'm over putting things away.
I'm over decorating.
WEIRD right?
Hopefully this too shall pass.

So... instead of doing the things I SHOULD be doing, I have chosen to embark on making really great playlists.

Current favorites are:
"Whatcha Say" by Jason Derulo featuring Imogen Heap
"Only You Can Love Me This Way" by Keith Urban
"I Never Told You" by Colbie Caillat

Don't worry. I have only been spending ALL day listening to, downloading and singing along to these songs and more. Waste of time? Some may think so. But, I believe music is healing to the soul. It does things for me that nothing else can. It can lift my spirits, change my mood and motivate me.

Now, I shall begin painting my nails. Another totally important thing I forgot to put on my TO DO list.
Feel free to let me know of other VERY important things I should be doing... aside from what I REALLY should be doing.

good day.

It wasn't that I was not already having a decent day. My day was actually going pretty well. Good news left and right, best conversation of my life the evening before.
Things were going MY WAY.
If you know me, you probably know that I love spouting out random quotes from random movies at random times.
Most of the time they are so random, it's hard to figure out exactly where they came from.
Yesterday, as I was listening in on a customer's small conversation with her friend she said,
"You lied to me?"

And thus beginneth my story.
Ok... If you are not Ani, you probably won't get the importance of this seeminly UNimportant quote. If said correctly, it sounds like something from the movie Mulan. When the little dragon, Mushu finds out that the cricket is NOT lucky. Mushu also believes that the horse in the movie is a cow. He then turns to the horse and says,
"And what are you a sheep!?"
And then I laugh hysterically because I am 7 years old and think Disney movies are clever.

Back to the girl starting to quote a movie:

As these lovely friends exit the store, the other turns and says,
"And what are you a sheep?!"

HAHA. I wish I was their friend at that moment because the only person I know who KNOWS that quote is my lovely sister, Ani.
And that is why my good day was just that much better.

let's recall

this beautiful scene... that probably made me absolutely FALL in love with this show.
It's pathetic, but tears well when I see this.
(Don't mind the russian subtitles)
I can relate Merideth... I can relate.

Dear Mr. Butler,

Um... hi.
I find you highly attractive.
That is all.

home sweet home?

This is what I have been trying to organize for the last 4-5 days. And it's still not quite cleaned up.

I will however, inform you all that my closets are clean and organized and so is my bathroom.
NOW all I have to do is move my bed, hang up decorations, buy a few lamps, get some drapes and possibly paint the furniture.
The goal is within reach. I can feel it. It ALMOST feels like home... I can't wait until it does!

Sometimes life stresses me out to no end.
And it kind of creeps up on you and then
it all falls onto you like a ton of freaking bricks.
Some may say, well that's just because you procrastinate.
This may be true. I am a MAJOR procrastinator.
But, then things happen outside of your control and you just want to SCREAM.
At times, I just want to throw things all the livelong day.
Frustration is what I refer to as any sort of emotion that comes when something happens and there is nothing you can do about it. And it's sucky sauce.
(Add sauce to the end of any adjective and you get the best description ever.)
So... I am moving.
and I am working.
and I need to pay bills.
AND WHEN DID I TURN into a 30-year-old work-hating machine? BOOO.
Yes, here I am... complaining. In this economy. Which is also sucky sauce.
And, to top it off... where are all my peeps at?
I lost my friends.
And the sticker on my laptop is unsticking and it's scratching my wrist and I still need to wash my face and brush my teeth and go to bed so I can wake up and do ALL the things on my TO DO list.
And I wore these shoes that made my feet smell and I am driving a car that I can't reach the pedal to and I really miss when LIFE was simple and all I had to worry about was whose turn it was to do the dishes...

Complaining sesh - OVER.
I guess I can call this bitter pity party #2.
I promise I am a happy person...

this scene makes me grin from ear to ear.

i wish life was really like this.

guess i'll go eat worms...

I'm usually not one for a pity party...
but for some reason I am feeling slight pity for myself.
Yesterday I was working early morning to help set up some stuff for Shade.
We had an employee from Shade Corporate come and supervise and tell us how to make the store beautiful.
I have met this specimen before... on several occassions actually.
I am only having a bitter pity party because the WHOLE MORNING he was calling me ERICA.
After repeatedly telling him my name was in fact, ALIX...
he continued to call me ERICA and I gave up on trying to correct him.
Who the blank is ERICA??
So, apparently I am not important enough to remember my name.
Guess I'll go eat worms
At my party... anyone want to bring balloons?
Thus endeth my story.

Sir Bennington III

This was my bunny.
He had a regal name.
Mostly because he was a regal bunny.
We loved him very much.
He was part of our family.
You can judge us.
It's ok. I still enjoyed his company.
We would even take him on trips...
I will miss the way he would nibble on lettuce and celery and carrots.
Weird right? A bunny who actually LIKED carrots...
I will miss the scurrying around when we would vacuum.
And when I would hold him near his cage he would LEAP out of my arms in efforts to escape to freedom... TO HIS CAGE.
OHHH BENNI. (Apparently that's how we spell his name)

December 2004 - August 2009

random thoughts...

Remind me to blog about the following things:
Time Traveler's Wife
New Boots
Broken clothing
My room
How much I wish I had a MILLION dollars and
My bunny

I hope you enjoyed the sneak peaks...

500 Days of Summer

Saw THIS movie last night:

I absolutely ADORED it.
I want the soundtrack.
And I just LOVE Zoey Deschanel's cute, spunky style and personality.
I can't wait to see this again.

"A heart is a fragile thing. Some hearts are more fragile than others. Purer somehow. Like crystal in a world of glass, even the way they shatter is beautiful. That is why we protect them so vigorously, give them away so rarely, and why it means so much when we do."

Story of my life..

For the MOMENT.


I got one.

Praise the good heavens above! I have a new, fully functional, WORKING cellular device.

No more dropped calls in broad daylight.

No more "I never got that call... or that text."

No more. NO. MORE.

One thing that IS a problem with the new phone is I don't quite know how to use it properly. And I am probably the worst texter this side of the Mississippi.

Bear with me folks while this transition - while it is a magical one - it's gonna take a LITTLE getting used to.

Moving forward.

My CHI straightener broke.

AND I am out of curling creme for my curly locks.

This is what I refer to as a PREDICAMENT.

I am in the process of recieving a new fully functional straightener (with benefits including: UNLIMITED WARRANTY.)

Don't worry people, I still have my HIGH SCHOOL straightener.

Things are going MY way.

In other news...

I am working.

Actually that is NOT news because that is ALL I have been doing.

Better news:

I am attending school at UVU in the fall.

Yes, you heard correctly, Utah Valley UNIVERSITY baby.

This is HOPEFULLY where I will get my nursing degree.

Or some sort of degree, dang it.

It is so incredibly difficult for me to narrow down my education to ONE specific thing because I seriously want to do EVERYTHING. From being an author to nurse to maybe one day getting a pilot’s license… I can’t say that I am fully content with choosing just one major.

LUCKILY I realized that I have my whole life ahead of me and picking ONE thing is NOT what I will be doing.


I am moving.

YES everyone... MOVING.

If you know me, you know that I pretty much DESPISE moving.

But, I am actually really excited about this one and I will tell you why.

I get my own room. That's not really new. But with this room there are TWO closets and MY VERY OWN bathroom.


I believe so.

Not only that, but we get the freedom of decorating our space HOWEVER we want. I mean, paint, furniture - the WORKS. Dream come true. I am tickled. What color you ask? You will just have to wait for that post... :)

You may be in for a TREAT.

Ode to the BURG


I miss you.

The end.
