I’m a little late. No, scratch that, I’m a couple weeks late! But Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everybody!
I’ve been known to say I’ll do something and then get totally and utterly distracted by things going on in my life. To me, it’s crazy to think that there was a time when I had so much time on my hands I didn’t know what to do with it. I’m so used to being busy, even on my days off I sit around pondering the things I could and should do. I’m not used to having all this time on my hands these days. Having two days off makes me feel lazy and unproductive.

Why am I so bad at keeping up with posting? I really don’t have an answer for this! Life’s been busier, even better these days. I don’t have much time for an update at the moment, will post more later. Between starting my junior year in college, making some new friends, pulling away from older friends, and mainly working, I guess I’ve been a little busy.
Then again, I just spent the past 2 days marathoning Peaky Blinders on Netflix. Absolutely loved it. To future posts to come soon!
Will leave with a video for the song that’s been stuck in my head lately:
It’s been a few days since I’ve posted in here. Mostly because some things came up at home, and it made me seriously think about moving out. Problem is, I finally decide I need to do it, and I realize I really can’t even afford to do it. I have no vehicle, the cheapest rent close to my campus is $555, and that’s not including extra things I need. Such as my phone, books for class, and other basic necessities such as food and everyday house things. To just be able to get out would mean barely scraping by every month. Unless I were to pull out a loan.
Loans would be a problem, though, because of the fact that I’m already in debt with my student loans. Anything more and I feel that would be overkill. Only if I have no other choice will I make that kind of move.

These days are getting are getting harder and harder for me to be understanding with my mother. Her and I share a bank account, much to my dismay, but for awhile it was something that we had to do. Anymore, I’ve been wanting to get my own account, but according to her, “there’s never enough time,” basically. So I’ve sucked it up and tried to deal with it.
Except, when I got paid on Friday I decided to pay half of my cell-phone bill. Because, the money I just deposited is technically mine, right? Wrong. According to her, because she drives me to and from work, it’s her money. And, you know, I don’t pay any of the bills except my cell-phone one. Here’s the thing: The bills are under HER name. Plus, she’s late on them. Is that my fault? Apparently somehow it is. Because despite the fact that our money is mixed together, I never pay any of the bills.

Before the end of this month, I’ll finally be turning 21. Which is amazing because it’s one of those moments that used to feel so long ago, and now it’s right around the corner. Time just flies by.
I can’t remember the last time I made a big deal out of a birthday, or when anyone else has for that matter. Might’ve been when I was 9 and all of my family came over for a birthday party. Ever since then, though, birthdays went from being given a couple gifts to simply being an ordinary day. It’s been years since I’ve really celebrated it – and last year I worked it. Worked six hours straight with no break, and my supervisor couldn’t understand why I was getting cranky. Anyways, my point is, birthdays don’t really get celebrated around here.

I don’t know why, but I’ve been craving gummy worms. It’s one of those things that you realize you haven’t had in the longest time, and all of a sudden you realize that you want some. Candy isn’t even something I eat that often these days. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a junk-o-holic, but I have to be in the mood for candy. Too sweet, I think. Junk food, in general, though, is too tempting, and I really should cut back on some of it.
The older I get, the more I’m noticing how bad my eating habits really are. I’ve gotten in such a bad habit of eating mainly once a day. The rest of the time I snack. Unless I’m really hungry. Then I make an exception and actually make myself something to eat, usually for breakfast/lunch.That’s only part of my problem.

The ideal day would not start with a trip to the job, but rather sleeping all day, streaming Netflix and listening to music. Ohh and completely avoiding all aspects of life – with the exception of a few.
When I first started working at my job, I went in with this attitude that I would avoid drama at all cost and just do my best to get along with everyone. Which I have managed to accomplish – for the most part – in the year and a half since I begun working there. However, the longer I’m there, the more I start to see the problems more clearly. Coworkers who can’t stand each other, rules that get changed around with each manager or shift supervisor, and people who get away with things that most of us aren’t able to do.
