June 30th

Hello gorgeous humans! I have a very busy work schedule for the next two weeks so my apologies in advance if some of my posts are really short. This Saturday I literally work from open until close so I will be a tired lady.

I painted today. Protip: If you're looking for art for your room and you can't find any, just make your own. It's kinda fun, even if you're not a great artist. And if you make it yourself, it's just about guaranteed to match your color scheme.

I need a desk for my room. Anyone want to send me a tiny white desk?

June 29th

Got through episode eight of Game of Thrones with my mom last night. It was super fun, except I didn't get much sleep and had to wake up early and help my dad move his piano out of his house so we could bring it up to my apartment. It was really, really hard. Undoubtedly the heaviest, most awkward thing I've ever had to move...and we had to go down stairs with it. I am cut up and bruised and I actually exerted myself to the point where I almost passed out, and then spent the next half an hour trying not to puke. And my dad and I were taking water breaks, it was just so hard to move that we could move it like...three inches at a time. Fewer when we were going down the stairs. We would literally lift it, scoot our feet a little, and set it down again. And these stairs were outside in the sun because we couldn't fit the piano down the stairs in the house. My dad has a wraparound deck on his house though, with stairs coming down (12 steps, a landing, then four more steps), so we just took it out the front door and down the stairs. (The house is on a slope so the main level is at ground level in the back but about 15 stairs up at the front. It's confusing. I'd show you a picture but I don't want to put my dad's house on the internet.) Anyway, now I'm tired and sore and thankful to have tomorrow off from work.

I got new sheets and stuff today. And I drank yummy frozen lemonade. And now my mom and I are going to watch more Game of Thrones! I'm excited for her to see Tyrion's trial. I am excited to see his trial. For the fourth time. Yeah.

My mom and I are watching Game of Thrones. She hasn't seen most of season four so I'm trying to get her caught up! She needs to see some people die! I'm really excited for her to see Tyrion's trial. SHAE!

I'm getting new bedding tomorrow. And my dad and I are bringing his old digital piano up to my apartment! I'm gonna play music and read my new books and be a happy camper. Plus I don't work tomorrow so I just get to chill. And I get paid soon!

Happy half birthday to my amazing sister! She is the best ever and she's away at camp right now and I miss her! Waah!

Work tomorrow and then off to fetch my books from my dad's house! Also the piano! ...This means I have to clean my apartment though. I don't want to do dishes right now!

I have a horrible headache and I'm super tired, so I think I'm just going to go to bed now. I know that makes me super lame buuut I have work in the morning and I'd rather not be a zombie while I'm there.

I wanna buy stuff with all the money I don't have.

Work made my feet sore today. Good thing I work every day for the rest of the week! (Actually though, I'm glad that I do! Yay money!)

I think I'm going to watch Orange is the New Black. But not tonight. I slept very poorly last night and then slept poorly when I tried to take a nap before work. So I am a sleepy girl!

Okay guys, the second (as in episode V) Star Wars movie is pretty good. Yes, I just watched it for the first time last night and yes I liked it. Yay!

Today I did lots of interior decorating like a badass adult. I love crafts! Whee!

I watched Star Wars episode V for the first time! Now it's time for some Game of Thrones. I'll post something better tomorrow!

Time to do some more crafting! I bought some tacky glue or whatever that stuff know, the stuff in the shiny gold-ish bronze-ish bottle that every mom has. I went to Jo-Ann Fabric to get the glue and they were having a huge sale on all of their nautical themed decor - it was all 70% off. Since I have almost no decor in my room, I've been planning on decorating it with a nautical theme for awhile now, but decorating is expensive! But I got a bunch of cute stuff and spent hardly any money. All I need now is a little bookshelf for my books and some spray paint to do some more DIY crafts. I'm excited! I love having my own place.

I'm on a Dollar Store DIY kick right now. If my stuff turns out not-shitty, I'll show you guys when it's done! I'm also on a chicken nugget kick.

Did the dishes like a boss. Now I gotta clean the living room like a boss. I am an ADULT.

I'm playing Phase Ten with some lovely people right now! I had a very sleepy day so I think I might be up late tonigt. Oops. Just when I thought I fixed my sleep schedule!

I gotta watch Adventure Time soon too!

Now I'm gonna eat corn and talk to Ian!

Target is currently selling a framed print of a black-capped chickadee watercolor. I want it SO BADLY. But it's like $40.

I bought a J.Crew sweater today. It was $8. Consignment stores are the best.

I have a new nighttime skincare routine! But I really, really want the GlamGlow Supermud Clearing mask. I don't exactly have an extra $70 right now though. MONEY.

Hello humans! I have some seriously mixed feelings about Game of Thrones.


What I liked: Shae's death, the children of the forest, the Hound's demise, most of Tywin's ending scene, Arya's final scene, Daenerys' scenes
What I didn't like: The Hound meeting Brienne and Pod and the obscenely long fight scene, and most importantly, NO LADY STONEHEART

I'm at my mom's house! We're sorting through stuff since she's moving soon. My back hurts and my feet hurt. But we're making progress. I'm also talking to Ian! Hi Ian!

I like my new job. Retail and I get along very well.

I like Davanni's. I tweeted at them and told them I liked them and they sent me a gift card with $5 on it. So now I like them even more.

I like Game of Thrones and I don't want it to be over, but this episode is probably going to be pretty fucking epic.

Mike is teaching me how to adult. Grocery shopping! I will post a longer entry tomorrow, but I'm going to be social now!

I just Skyped with Lexa, aka my sun and stars. We talked about Game of Thrones and Anfo Stewart. It was a good time, even though it was lagging literally the whole time. But Lexa and I are very dedicated.

So Lexa wrote a poem about Anfo Stewart once, and I'm going to share it with you guys because it's the best thing anyone has ever written, ever.

An Ode to Anfo Stewart

The name of Anfo Stewart won’t
Mean much to you. To seek
The truth behind the name is daft,
And efforts make you weak.

The thrill of one man’s mystery
Produced a bond of friends.
Although we live across the States,
We hunted ‘til the end.

What started creepy turned to fun.
His mockful blog began
It all—he played on Kate’s
Words. We had started forming plans.

With Kate the leader, Jon the author
Who published findings, I
Could analyze and seek him out.
Prepared, we became spies.

The hunt was on, yet yielded nothing.
The clues became more scarce.
Our luck run out, our brains exhausted,
We thought it all unfair.

“Crack open Sprite, release the hounds!”;
“Responsible for what you’ve tamed.”:
Final remarks. The hunt is through.
He’s only left his fame.

But if you find out who he is
Don’t hesitate to call.
If not for him I’d have no hunt.
To him, I owe it all.

Job interview went well today...keep your fingers crossed for me! I like the manager there so I think I'd like working there. 

Time to go to bed at a normal adult time! Is this what growing up is like? Going to bed at 10:00?

I had a good day today. I got stuff done, and then had a bunch of energy left over which I translated into running around in the grass energy. I'm crazy tired now though.

June 8th

I'm waking up from a nap right now. I was in like deep REM sleep when my blog alarm went off, I felt like I was pulling myself from the depths just to open my eyes. It was weird. 

I gotta watch Game of Thrones and Miss USA still, but I'm way sleepier than I should be. I wasn't planning on napping, I just kinda fell asleep. 

I had a nightmare about selling my perfume on eBay, and then one of my favorite YouTubers had a tumor. It was a bizarre and not very nice dream. 

I've gotten a disproportionately large amount of eyelashes in my eyes in the past 48 hours.

June 7th

I'm exhausted. I didn't sleep last night, literally. Zero hours of sleep. So I've stayed awake all day so I can go to bed at a normal hour and not further screw up my sleep schedule. I was going to try and wait until 10:00 but I'm fading fast over here. On the plus side, new Game of Thrones tomorrow! I'm excited for episode ten more than the one tomorrow, but we should see a nice death scene so I guess that's all right. Good night y'all!

Oh hey, my birthday is in one month!

I'm a sleepy lady tonight. I'm going to have a snack and then go to bed I think. I'm a real party animal on Friday nights!

Lucky's Place in Sauk Rapids is totally cool. It's a true no-kill shelter- even antisocial or FIV+/FLV+ cats are welcome. They also house pregnant cats. The cages are bigger and nicer than at most humane societies, and they don't look or feel like those awful medical-grade metal cages that so many shelters use. The shelter is a converted barn and cats are allowed to walk around. (FLV+ and FIV+ cats are kept sequestered.) It's owned by a woman who also lives there so it's always open as long as she's home. They also have several horses available for adoption.

This is where I'm thinking of adopting my cat from. I've been there twice and really love the place, the owner, and of course the cats. I might also volunteer there! (And then I'd get to hang out with the horses, too!) I'm excited.

Well, I've seen every episode of Adventure Time now. Except I read a SPOILER and I'm still upset about it even though I predicted something like it would happen. Sigh. 

Now I'm hanging out with Sarah and Megan!

Well, I finished all of my ear infection medicine today, but my ear is still a little plugged. I'm thinking of going back to the Minute Clinic because it's really annoying me at this point. I can hear fine, but I haven't been able to completely hear out of my right ear for about ten days now.

Today I paid bills and watched Adventure Time. I am sort of an adult! Also, I heartily recommend Adventure Time. I wasn't convinced I liked it until a few episodes in, but episodes are 11 minutes long so it's not like Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones or anything. But unlike a lot of animated shows, there's continuity and character development, and every once in awhile it catches me off guard with a really dark joke or situation. The backstory is surprisingly intense...I like it. And there's some good social commentary peppered in for good measure. The first two seasons are on Netflix! Go watch! The first episode set is crap and I almost didn't watch anymore, but it gets a lot better after that. And there are sweet voice actor cameos from George Takei and Levar Burton and other badass people.

I'm still having a lot of feelings about Game of Thrones. Also about Adventure Time.

Tomorrow I'm gonna buy groceries and pay bills! Like an adult! But tonight I'm super tired so I'm gonna sleep. Fuck yeah.

Happy June! And by happy I mean HOW TRAGIC WAS GAME OF THRONES TONIGHT? I have been waiting for this episode for so long and my god that ending scene was brutal. And next week - the notorious Episode Nine - looks less exciting. It's the siege of the Wall but let's be honest, does anyone even care about that after tonight's episode? There are two more deaths and one big reveal I'm still waiting for and I think they might all happen in episode ten. Oh, my head! (WINKY FACE.)

And in the time I've spent not shitting my pants about Game of Thrones recently, I've been watching Adventure Time! I can't believe how much I fell in love with that show.
