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?

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,

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.

I got up in time!!

I got up in time to head to Weight Watchers this morning – which in hindsight isn’t that difficult, but when you get home around 3:15 and then your boyfriend decides to keep you awake so you only have maybe 4 hours of sleep, it was challenging.

But I knew that if I went I could be back on track.

And that’s the case. It was great seeing everyone since it’s been a couple of weeks, it puts me back on track. Which is what I feel like I needed anyways.

It’s honestly a great experience to go back to a community that you haven’t taken part in in awhile, and I gained 3.8 pounds, but considering that it could be so much higher, I’m not terribly upset.

I think it will motivate me to become better this coming week, especially with my Lent Goals that I will be starting at the beginning of next month.

I can’t believe that it’s coming up, in all honesty.

Thanks!

Talkin’ Shit

We all do it.

Don’t lie.

But the issue that I have with it, is that we’re all going to gossip, and if you hear it you may tell your significant other. The issue that I have about it, is that when people talk about you but they don’t even know the situation.

Yeah, I know. It happens.

Example:

I have been babysitting for a family that is going through a really difficult divorce. Like the dad has the “divorced dad syndrome” where he wants to play favorites and then the kids act out – it happens. But…

I watched his kids for months and he still owes back payment on child support but tries to get me involved in court.

No. Stop.

I’m 24 going on 25 – and I’m not married. I don’t even live in the same zip code as you (Oklahoma has really weird zip codes, honestly, like Oklahoma City tries to buy all this land and then you have the other towns that just float in their own little islands. It’s so weird)

Sorry that this is really a venting post, but it irks me. I’m not in your life, and now I see the kids like once a month. Ughhhh <insert angry noises here>

People that go through divorces, are so brave. Especially when they get as messy as this. It amazes me how everything gets torn up and just cast to the side, and it scares me that marriages can go through this. If anyone reads this and you’ve been through a divorce, you’re awesome for surviving. Because, this is just way over my head.

Sabotage

Don’t sabotage people, it doesn’t end well, I’m not saying from personal experience. However, being on the end of sabotage is infuriating and destructive.

Not only are you throwing away your self-worth, but you’re also becoming a person of immaturity, and evilness, essentially.

I recently found out that a job that I applied for in August was sabotaged by someone I know, because they essentially didn’t want me to move on and be happy.

A couple things about that.

  1. Seriously, not cool. I was going to swear, but I’m trying not to on this blog. I don’t think people want the F word floating around on their feed.
  2. Why? I couldn’t even get a straight answer about it, it’s so infuriating and pretty much disgusting that someone would go to this level.
  3. I can’t even. Mind you I’m typing this after having digested this for a bit, but I’m angry, hurt, betrayed, and shocked. Maybe appalled is the correct word.

It almost makes me want to do something back, but I know that if I just cut the person out, I’ll be better off. I am also aware that I am taking a higher road out of this, and that is pretty mature for me, right about now, but also, I just don’t want to be in that level of toxicity.

I’m so done. It’s 2017 – let’s move on with our lives, and I’ll just cut you out. Nothing says “Bye” more than someone just cutting you out, and still being happy without you.

Essentially – I’m not going to sink to the level you tried to throw me on, I’m better than that. But a word, if I may, if something like this happens to you, no judgement from me if you want to be the mad human being and doing something in return.

But, for now, I don’t even want to be in the same room with this person. Talk about burning the bridge down and then turning around saying “I didn’t think that you would find out“.

I sincerely hope that there are better people in this world that wouldn’t ever do this to other people. I hope this is just a group of angry, hurt, and evil people who will not spread this around.

Sorry if this isn’t more of a vent-post. I just needed to express that there are better options, and please don’t be that person trying to sabotage others, because others may not be as clean and nice about it as me.

Thanks,

Kay
