Wedding

A friend of ours is getting married today. We’re excited but I also think that 3 years isn’t that long, but that’s my opinion. I’m happy for them regardless.

Though I guess it makes sense if people are looking at it like a time line for having children and all, like what else can we do? But pop them out early I guess. Which now makes me think about having children around the ages of 30 – which might be the social norm these days.

I finished my makeup and now I have my eyes watering up, which is not what I want at all, but that’s natural, I guess.

Also, I’m happy because I had a dress that I was going to wear but it’s too big now! But now it kind of just sits in my closest, so that is a bit sad. Anyways, hope all is well with everyone, and I hope to be more active soon.

Also, I’m down 22 pounds!!

Thanks,
Kay

Keto and Ketchup

Ketchup – as in let’s catch up!

Sorry I’ve been gone, it’s been busy where I’ve been. In the last week, I’ve started the Ketogenic diet, and I’ve dropped about 8 pounds, I’m sure it’s just water weight but it’s weight that I haven’t been able to lose before, so there’s that. I’m dangerously close to a goal weight and I’m happy about that.

I’m still doing positivity posts and I think I’ve been doing those for about 2 months now, which is awesome. Depending on the post ~40 people like it, which means 40 people see what I’m writing out, and I think that’s wonderful in itself.

I’ve been working a lot more, which means actual work instead of down-time. But I’ve also managed to hit level 122 on a bubble game that I started 2 weeks ago on facebook – so I’ve had more time, but it’s easier to be on facebook so I can chat with my fellow library people.

I’m now actively searching for a full time job in the last month, and I was offered a position at AFLAC which I turned down, only because it was difficult to sign on to a job where I would be a 1099 instead of a W2, but I told them to contact me in a couple of years, because I do think I would be excellent for that kind of job. I love helping people, and I know how to tie an emotional connection to something to sell, so I am good at selling things (that is, if I think it’s worth it).

For this week, I have to work a lot extra for work (bleh), and I have a wedding to go to – they were our former roommates, but I was going to go to the bachelorette party, but have to work, because no one else seems to want to come in. Actually, a whole bunch of people took off for that day, and then my boss was like ‘yeah come in’ and I’ve been over a lot on hours, but it’s frustrating since I can only work so much.

I hope everything is well for everyone who reads this, if anyone wants to read this, because I’ve been gone, and I’m going to try to be more active. I have some stuff coming up this month and next, but that’s what makes life so exciting, right?

Thanks,

Android Messaging

Ever buy a phone and you get sad because your messaging app sucks.

That was me for over a year, but now I finally have tried a new messaging app which has been working for like 3 days, and I’m not getting paid for this, but it’s so exiciting for me.

For once, I can actually send images instead of through the orignial app and then the primary one.

For once, I can actually take part in group texts!
With my family non the less!! 

For once, I actually want to text people!

This feels new, and exciting, and it’s like I have a new phone. Also, I hope this lasts, but I guess time will tell! Thank you Android Messaging, for making my life a little easier.

Yes – I get excited about simple things. Sue me.

Ash Wednesday

I went to mass on Wednesday, and I liked it. But I was also so confused about it all.

Did we always sing everything?

Did we always ring bells?

I know that I was in the Catholic Life a lot, but I don’t remember it being so mystical all the time. It was enjoyable, but also confusing.

I’m glad I went back, even though it was a tad bit emotional for me, at the same time. I need to figure out what I’m doing though because I feel the need to return to church because it’s something that I grew up with, so it’s familiar to me, but at the same time, I don’t truly believe that God is present, because I feel like I’m more of a deist than anything else.

I don’t know, it’s weird.

I wonder if there is anyone I could talk to about it?

LifePlanner Changes

I am so thankful that I bought a LifePlanner, because I already feel like I’m more organized than I was a month ago.

Not only does it keep me on track to what I want to do throughout the week, but because I carry it everywhere with me, it also gives the illusion that I’m more organized to everyone else. I accidentally brought it into an interview last week, and they were so impressed. The woman started gushing about how she always wanted one, and she’s glad that she interviewed someone who is striving to be organized.

Which I am. But I’ve only filled out 2.5 weeks, if that.

First week will not be shown because I was being messy and lazy, but I will show the last two weeks:

Week One.

16930894_10158200786620537_279367107_o

Week Two.

I got the neutral theme, and I’m kind of just adding things as I move on. I work mostly Saturdays-Tuesdays so Wed-Fri are my off days, where I run errands and everything else. I bought lots of stickers on Etsy and I’m in love.

Also Pro-Tip: Make sure you know how much you’re buying because you’ll go broke fast.

Thanks again,

Kay

Painted Nails

This is so weird, but I had to share it.

I’m not too much of a prissy girl, but I have noticed something. (I do apply makeup to my face every day, but I guess you’ll see what I mean) I feel so empowered when I put on dark nail polish – and I don’t really get it.

Maybe it’s like an alter-ego coming and out and realizing how much potential I really have. Or having a switch go on inside and helping me see that I’m a bit more bullet proof than I originally thought.

So I got in the habit about last week – because when I go in for interviews, it looks really nice if my hands are painted versus not being painted. (At least in my mind) and I bought some stuff for it, and I really like how my nails look.

As I look down, I also realize that my skin looks like a different shade, but that’s probably because of the contrast. I bought OPI’s color Russian Navy and I’m in love. I love the dark blue look, but when it comes up to the light, it looks indigo. (Available at your local Ulta)

According to the website it’s supposed to last 10 days, so all I need to do is wait and see.

Thanks for reading this, as always,

Kay

Lent

So for those who celebrate lent – it’s coming.

I was brought up in the church – I attended Catholic schools for most of my life (10+ years so definitely most of my life) and I can also say that is one way for a child who turned into an adult to break away and “discover” other means of religion.

I’m practically agnostic/deist but still on the edge, and not making any means to commit to another anytime soon. Yes, it’s because I’m lazy and I’ll be 25 in June so I’m still unsure about everything religion. There’s too much pressure on society’s views on it anyways.

So, one of my closest friends is going through the process of becoming a Catholic. And while I’m excited for him, it really puts things in perspectives on how the Church is set up – and as emotional support I blindly said that I would participate in Lent with him.

Yay.

So, instead of giving something up, I’m going to do what I did in December (Runcember) and work out more. I pretty much did a 5K every day of December, and while I do have a 5K that I’m walking for Weight Watchers, I’ll be working out every day of March. Except for Sunday’s because I work long hours on that day, and you’re supposed to be taking a break once a week anyways.

Lucky for me, I prefer Tuna to anything, so the No Meat on Friday’s won’t be challenging. We’ll see how it works out, I have everything written in my planner just to make sure. It’s actually a lot of fun to be organized.
