Look at our Christmas tree! Eee! It's my very own first full-size (albeit fake) Christmas tree! Christopher and I got it at Target for $20! And it's 6ft tall! Then we got twinkling lights for about $5, and then two boxes of ornaments for $10! I am a little sad that we had to get a fake tree, but I really don't have the resources to a. get a tree onto my little scion tC, b. pay for one, or c. take care of it/clean it up. So, maybe another year. Oh well. To make up for it, I went to Bath & Body Works and picked up a wallflower with an evergreen scent, so it's almost like the real thing ;] I love the smell of Christmas trees, it really puts me in the holiday spirit!
Friday marks my last day at work where I am now. Ugh. I can't wait! This whole thing was all so unexpected, but I'm glad that it happened. Next week I have off, with the exception of training on Wednesday, and then I'll find out when I start my new job!
In other news, my birthday is in exactly one month. January 7th. I love birthdays, I really do... but I think the last time I had a really successful birthday party that I can look back on positively was when I turned 21 (I'll turn 24 in 2011). Since then, they've been a bust. Especially last year, holy mess. Michelle was the only person to actually celebrate with me on the actual day... and then only 2 people showed up to my party (not counting Michelle who was my roommate at the time, so of course she was there... but then again my other roommate just didn't ever show). It makes me so depressed looking back on it. And I know this year won't be any different. Which is why I'm just going to have dinner with my boyfriend and then a family dinner with my folks. My birthday is on a Friday this year, which is awesome... AND I'll be working at the Beau Rivage (it's a casino/resort in Biloxi, MS) in the ad department by then, so I'm going to try to get a hotel room so I can just stay and celebrate with Christopher and eat, drink, and gamble my little heart out to try to forget about the fact that I have no friends willing to celebrate my birthday with me. Wow emo, much? I can't help it lately. I had such a hard time with what happened at work, and none of the people who've ever called me "best friend" or "friend" ever came to me with their shoulder to lean on. However, I did feel better because the people who actually did come forward offering care and support were people I haven't spoken to in a while or hardly even know. It still hurts though. It's like I graduated college and now I don't exist. Sucks. So, I started this blog with hopes of making some friends and maybe build a friend base in another city that Chris and I could move to once we save up money and gain some more job experience and build our resumes. /emorant
Sorry to end on such a sappy note, but I feel better getting that out there. Positive thoughts for me? I could use 'em. I love my 13 followers! ha (:
