Today (Yesterday*), Nino and I went for a little nature hike in the woods and a walk on the train tracks behind my house. We bought a pretty new baby today, and had to try her out. (Verdict: She’s a keeper.)

👨💚 (FYI, this Emoji man looks exactly like every drawing of my dad that I ever make.)

So, my boyfriend and I moved into our little apartment on Thursday!! (Details to follow in another post, eventually… we’re still unpacking and getting settled.)

Together, we had almost everything we needed to start out in our own. Some of what we didn’t have but needed was given to us by my mother’s “man-friend,” including a kitchen table, toaster oven, and an awesome air conditioner (we’re in the middle of a heatwave, FYI). My aunt and cousins also gave us a $50 giftcard to Target, which helped us get some of what we still needed, including 2 curtain rods, 2 blackout curtain panels, a large bath mat, and a dish drying rack.

Today, Nino and I went to my dad’s house: originally because Nino wanted to change his oil and vacuum his car; however, we ended up just doing 3 loads of laundry and frying chicken. While one of our loads of laundry was in the wash, we went for a walk on the train tracks behind my house. When we got back, we packed up and said goodbye to my dad, and headed back to our apartment.

That was over 6 hours ago. I’m getting my things ready for tomorrow — classes start, and I have a statistics class at 10:30am (barf). I happened to look in my wallet to see how much money I have for the week, and I found a $100 bill that was NOT there before!

I think that my Daddy-Man snuck some good-luck/start-off money into my wallet when I wasn’t looking. 💚💚💚

I am absolutely desperate. None of the places that I applied to have called me back. And whatever financial aid money I am able to put toward an off-campus rent and groceries will not be available to me until November.

I may have a monthly rent and bills to pay. I will have to buy groceries. And I can’t do any of these things because nobody will hire me. I am out of options, I don’t know what else to do…

#EmergencyBruce says it’s alright it’s alright it’s alright

There was a time in Bruce’s life when he too could not afford rent or groceries. He lived in a surfboard factory sleeping in the office. Sometimes he had to sleep in a van. Even got food stamps. So hang tight, stay strong & keep the faith. Because everything’ll be okay..

BLESS THIS POST. 🙏

Emergency Bruce was right. Things are working out! My boyfriend and I are moving into our own little apartment tomorrow, school starts on Monday, and I am hoping to hear back from several jobs in the next 2 weeks!

"why on Earth would I stoop to his level by doing something like that? Just because someone has wronged me does not necessarily mean that I have to even the score." Are you saying that he's cheated on you before?

No, I am not saying that my boyfriend has cheated on me. What I am saying is that if someone — regardless of WHO that person is, whether it be a boyfriend, friend, acquaintance, sibling, or whomever — wrongs me, I do not feel the need to seek revenge on that person.

Because I am not a fucking child. Because this is the real world. Because I will not waste my precious time and energy on stupid bullshit like “seeking revenge.”

I am a grown woman who happens to be moving into an apartment with her boyfriend TOMORROW.

I don’t know who you are or how you think that you know me, but I suggest that you redirect your energy toward something more useful and beneficial to you.

Thank you for your concern, if you can call it that. But I don’t care what you think about me, I don’t think about you at all.

Hey there. Your boyfriend doesn't really seem to respect you. You should blow one of his friends.

Well, that was rude. Do you come from a planet where it is acceptable to make uninformed statements about people?

Whether or not my boyfriend respects me is no concern of yours. Even if it appears that my boyfriend “does not respect me,” why on Earth would I stoop to his level by doing something like that? Just because someone has wronged me does not necessarily mean that I have to even the score. The fact that he could someday lose a Queen for being a buttheaded fool would be punishment enough. No matter how furious I become with him (and believe me, I have thought about stabbing him with a paring knife), I will never do anything to deliberately hurt him mentally, physically, or spiritually.

But maybe that’s the difference between us.

And anyway, as nice as his friends are, that’s all I see them as: my boyfriend’s friends. And I’m not in the line of “blowing” guys that I am not in love with, or ruining friendships/relationships. I genuinely enjoy seeing him with his friends. They’re real, lifelong best friends, the kind that most people can only hope to have. It’s so funny to see them interact with each other, I could watch them goof off for hours. I would hate for them to lose each other.

And by the way, “blowing one of his friends” sounds like a shitty line from a shitty teen movie. Grow up.

Packing and moving furniture, ‘cause bitches get shit done. 💪

Also, sometimes we get poison oak. 🌳🍃🍁

'Sup, poison oak? Thank you for showing up 3 days after I removed that tree. (Is this because you think I killed that garter snake? Because it was already injured when I found it. However, I will admit: I should not have gloated and done the 'I don't get poison ivy!' dance.)

I guess the summer wouldn’t have been complete without something super itchy. 🌳🌿🐍

My dad ordered “Prometheus” from Netflix, but warned me that it was a stinker… I had heard from several people that it was pretty bad, but I’ve been wanting to see it anyway. Soo, my dad and I just watched it (he watched it for the second time in one day!).

Parts of it were good; parts of it were very bad. There was a solid idea, but it could have been executed much better. I’m glad that I saw it, but I don’t know that I would want to see it again.

And honestly, some parts were just fucking stupid. Here is my (very poorly drawn) illustration of one of the stupidest parts: the captain of the spaceship sees “something” outside and tells the crew to open the door. Upon closer inspection, the “something” is the deformed body of a crewmember who had become infected with the alien virus (really, it’s a biological weapon). YOU CANNOT TELL ME THAT IF YOU SAW A HUMAN BODY ALL TWISTED UP LIKE REGAN MACNEIL, YOU WOULD LET IT INSIDE. SIT YO’ ASS DOWN, JANEK.
