So last week at this time, I applied for a job, and the next day, they’ve gotten back to me. I interviewed at the end of last week, and I’m supposed to be hearing from them, this week.

I would like to point out, that I don’t get that nervous with interviews, if ever. The nervous/anxiety bit tends to happen right around the time when they say “Okay, and we’ll let you know next week!”

Does that happen to any of you?

For some reason, it just pushes me over the edge, and I get irritable, and cranky. But I’m both irritable and cranky. And also, I’m physically exhausted. I think it’s because I’ve been stressing about it all this time, which it’s fine but goodness.

For someone who is always up at this time, it’s weird to be this exhausted. I’m currently at work so I have about 3 hours to go. But naturally when it’s time to leave I’ll be nice and perky again. Which doesn’t make any sense to me.

Anyways, I hope this one went well, but I guess we’ll just have to see this week. It would be a good pay increase, even though I love my current job.



Sorry Again

Sorry that I’ve vanished, my computer at home is essentially dead. Pretty much if it runs anything other than facebook, it just shuts off.

Which makes me wonder why only facebook works, but eh, whatever.

I hope everyone has been having a good month, and I’m typing up some posts that can queue throughout the week.

Happy Almost February guys!

(Sorry again, I’ve been super busy, you’ll see why)


People Change

But can they do it overnight?

Some people that I’ve recently cut out of my life I had the pleasure of running into the other day, and it was a whole entire experience. I’m actually still a little weirded out by it, just because I have never dealt with it before.

The changing personalities overnight thing.

Like, instead of being so negative but so positive, as well as calm, and wise. But if you bring something up, you couldn’t even see a resemblance of what the conversation would used to go down as.

Don’t get me wrong, if you’ve changed, than I’m super happy for you. What it tells me, is that either I needed to get out of your life, or you just needed the wake-up call.

The whole thing just freaks me out. I can’t tell if it’s an act or what. But I guess, if I just wait awhile, I will see if the change is permanent or not.


Weight Watchers Update (3)

I’m sure it’s around the third this year.

Calendar says yes.

Gained 2.4 pounds this week, can’t say I’m too surprised.

With the ice storm that we had this past weekend and the weekend before, I pretty much went into hibernation mode – while trying to work throughout this weekend in the wet and cold.

I also started noticing that I was bringing myself into old habits, like not tracking the food I was consuming, and just not caring overall.  It’s a bit sad, but I’m thankful that I’ve noticed now, instead of later.

If I noticed that I stopped caring later, than I may have done some damage that I couldn’t take back.

Anyways, hope the weather is warm near you.


Makeup Snob

I’m sure we’re all a bit snobby towards products/things/others when we know much about it.

I’m not a professional makeup artist or anything, one of my hobbies just happens to be makeup related. I’ve actually spent well over (at least) $5000 in the last five years. Which obviously that’s around $1000 a year, but for someone like me who makes a little over $13000 a year, that should show you that I value to have the latest palette over eating for the week.

However, that being cleared, I tend to know what is good for my skin and what I don’t like, because not all makeup is the same. I’m sure in the last couple of years, Younique has popped up on your feed, and how the lashes are amazing and so is the foundation.

This last Christmas, I caved, and I bought both the foundation and the mascara. Long story short: they are amazing. But unlike some people, I don’t shop just one brand. I like to purchase from different companies.

For instance, Laura Mercier has wonderful translucent powder, and the eye sticks (for eyeshadow) are amazing. Very pigmented, and easy to use.

Also, I love Too Faced’s Sketch Marker for the liquid liner, not only is it fine pointed, but the pigment is wonderful.

While the foundation and lashes were amazing regarding Younique, it’s not like me to just stick to a brand. My favorite thing in the world are Sheet Masks, and does Younique carry them? No. I don’t mind buying things from other companies, but I wish some of the presenters mixed it up a little bit. Add some other colors in, because we’re supposed to be broadening our horizons, not just sticking to one thing.

Of course, if you’re comfortable with it, then you can. But I don’t think many beauty bloggers stick to just one brand.


Ice Storm

Our lovely governor called a state of emergency on Thursday night for the ice storm that has been hitting other parts of the US.

Jokes on her because it was supposed to happen on Friday, and it is now Saturday and it still hasn’t happened.

It’s a bit nerve-wracking because I want the storm to hit or just miss us completely. I think it would be better if it did hit so that people wouldn’t constantly be all “the weather channel lied to us” (hello people, things change, just like you “do” every year)

While I agree having a winter is nice, this isn’t the kind of winter that I would like to actually have. With that being said, I hope that if the ice storm has made it towards you, that you are at home, and warm.

I know some people in Logan county last night lost power for a couple of hours. It makes me a tad concerned about being at work instead of at home. But the library will be open for a tad bit longer, and hopefully I can work tomorrow.

Hope you are all well,


Weird Bosses

Ever have that kind of boss that you feel really weird around? That you can’t really make them happy and always feel like you’re doing something wrong? Same here, bud, same here.

Don’t get me wrong, he’s a great boss. Our personalities just don’t mix. And there’s nothing wrong with that, but because he used to be my supervisor, I just stopped telling him things that were bothering me.

I am also aware that this is not how you solve an issue, but it worked for me. Not only did it work, but we didn’t have to talk to each other much at all.

For example, I’m not crazy about weekly meetings, but he was. I would rather you go to a higher meeting, and then send me an email. Mostly because I don’t need to feel nervous around someone all the damn time.

Maybe that’s selfish of me, but I don’t want to be in a constant panic.

I hope that all of your bosses are normal and are not causing you any panic. And I’m glad mine moved floors.
