| I am a goddess - Mood:Good|
Sunday May 20 201812:15:49 AM |
|Domestic and otherwise. |
I MADE COOKIES. It was the first time making them myself. I did ok! Messed up the first pan, but all the others turned out great.
I had to deal with Verizon today. They were supposed to do my internet but they screwed it up and we had to cancel the order. Except they lied to me several times about canceling it and set me up with autopay without my permission. So, since being nice didn't work, I called and read them the riot act and made them sit on the phone with me while they canceled it, then made them prove to me that it was canceled. It worked. Lesson learned.
I have no interesting news in my life. Post some stupid memes pls. Bonus pics for memes used incorrectly.

| In which I brag about my apartment and life as an adult - Mood:Good|
Wednesday May 16 20182:14:46 PM |
|I have everything in my apartment all set up. Internet is being set up on Friday, but I got the gas and electric all squared away. The leasing office was dragging their feet in getting me the information I needed to set everything up, so I called them and was ASSERTIVE and NO-NONSENSE and they got me my information within the hour. Because I get things DONE.|
I got a library card today. I like our local library. It's big and spacious and there's vending machines and places to just sit and read and chill. I think I'll probably spend a lot of time here.
My ukulele playing is going well. I'm learning Love Potion No. 9.
My boss is taking me to a stationery convention sometime soon. I didn't even know there WERE stationery conventions. I'm doing great at work and making heaps of money.
Oh, and I'M GOING TO DISNEYLAND. Suck it, losers.

|I nominate Oreo as my running mate|
My platform includes:
+ Banning people who say "LOL U HAVE SOMETHING HANGING OUT OF UR NOSE
+ Changing the site layout to hot pink
+ Letting people change their usernames
So, I moved today! I was living with a student housing company before - the one with all the stupid rules that I hated - and got my own place. It's really, really nice.
Everything here was really expensive. Apartments in D.C. ranged from 2,000 a month to 3,000. So I got a place just outside D.C. in Maryland. It's right on the border so my job and school are still accessible by metro. It's 1,100/month plus utilities. I'm really nervous because, you know, I've never really done this before... but also very excited.
Had a really weird interaction with a dude today while I was shopping.
My apartment has A.C.! Yaaaay!
Okay, so, give me advice on apartment stuff.

| "Do you two know how much that pen is worth?!" - Mood:Good|
Monday April 30 20187:06:58 PM |
|My boss keeps this ugly, dumb pen next to the cash register to use for signing receipts. Someone left it there one day and never came back for it. A few days ago, a customer came in, stared at us, and asked if we knew how much it costs.|
Nope. We shrugged.
Turns out the damn thing is made by Porsche and it's worth $350 fxcking dollars. Holy. Crap. And this thing is UGLY AND HORRIBLE. I'll put a link in the comments, it won't work in the main body for some reason.
I met a woman today who went to China RIGHT when Deng Xiaoping opened it up to the West. She told me all about it, it was so fascinating. And she's from Minnesota! She has a cute shop next to ours.
Also I made a new friend today at a local tea store.
Things are coming up Sleepy!
What's the most expensive thing you've unwittingly held in your hands?

| I`m procrastinating writing a paper. Come on in and help me do that. - Mood:Good|
Thursday April 26 201811:41:00 PM |
|I have three final papers that are due next one. One is mostly done (maybe some light editing), two are on the way, but I'm tired and I don't wanna write anymore and I just wanna watch stupid horror movies on Netflix.|
Has anyone seen the Hexecutioners? It was pretty great, it's on Hulu.
Today at a panel discussion, we were talking about the likelihood of Russia trying to spoil negotiations between the U.S. and North Korea. Some dude piped up and said, "But Vladimir Putin promised he wouldn't do that! Why would he say one thing and do another?!" Uh... because it's Putin? I mean, there's lots of good counterarguments to the Russia-as-spoiler argument, but that's just not one of them.
Come in and I may say something nice about you. Or something mean. Who knows. It's a fun surprise.
I have gorgeous new lipstick and a gorgeous new dress and I got lots of compliments today and it was nice.

| In which Sleepy gives full reign to the depths of her pettiness - Mood:Good|
Monday April 16 20183:35:54 PM |
|So, I got an email from my school's office the other day. "Please participate in this survey about the environment on campus!" it said. And I was like "sweet, I'll do that sometime in the next few days."|
And then the next day, they resent the email. You know, to remind me. Well, that's a bit annoying, I'll get to it, geez.
And then they sent another reminder email. And another. And another.
At this point, I'm like, nah. I'm not gonna take your stupid survey. You know why? Because your copious and unending emails are SO ANNOYING AND THEY ARE CLOGGING MY INBOX.
So I refused to take it out of spite, even though it would have been infinitely less irritating to just take it and get it done with. But they were badgering me and I hate to be badgered. So take that.
I reread Anne of Green Gables. Have you ever found a kindred spirit? I need to read the whole series now.

|My professor assigned an unreasonable amount of reading again for this week. Uuuuuugh. I like his class and he's a great professor, but I can't wait to be done with this. He wondered why twenty people showed up on the first day and then all but four dropped. Because your expectations are unreasonable, dude.|
I have bought/ordered a TON of books. Most of which I needed for school, but also some of which just looked like fun. Someone take my debit card away.
I'm having a hard time finding worthwhile horror movies to watch on Hulu. I think I've worked through almost all the ones on Netflix. Anyone have some good suggestions? I really liked The Hexecutioners.
I bought chalk. What should I draw on the sidewalk outside our apartment?
Our prof is having us stay late in class to listen to people give presentations because people wouldn't shut up in class to let her finish her lecture

Sunday April 08 201811:36:15 PM |
|So I was on Pinterest looking up fan art and I kept seeing these really weird drawings tagged "DHMIS." I googled it and found this.|
If you have half an hour, you can watch the whole thing there.
I... have no idea what I just saw. But I like it. But I think it might give me nightmares.
I went to a fancy formal dance the other night, that was fun. Got to wear a fancy dress and eat at a fancy restaurant. Which can be fun once in a while, although usually I prefer to stay in because I'm kind of lazy.
I'm about to start reading a new horror novel. It's called Horrorstor and it's apparently written as Ikea instructions. Weird? Yes. Stupid? Maybe. Am I gonna enjoy every second of it? Absolutely.
What's the weirdest Youtube video you've ever seen?

| This is a health-related journal - Mood:Good|
Tuesday April 03 20181:42:50 AM |
|I had some sort of stomach bug this weekend - lots of vomiting and all that. My symptoms lasted longer than was healthy, so my parents convinced me to see a doctor, just to get the all-clear. Thankfully, I'm starting to feel better now and I should be back to normal!|
The only thing that's worrying me a bit is that, at the doctor's office, I discovered that I've lost a substantial amount of weight. This semester, I've started eating healthier and working out, which is going great! But I don't really want to lose any weight. My doctor told me I'm at the perfect weight for my height and I'm really happy with where I am. So I guess I'm not really sure where to go from here.
Also, my workouts are going well! I still hate running. But at least I don't black out after working out anymore.
Now onto non-health related topics! (continued)

| Hey ho, I`m Pippi! - Mood:Good|
Saturday March 31 20184:39:06 AM |
|This was one of my favorite movies as a kid! I found it on youtube and decided I needed to relax. I didn't know they'd made a TV show out of it! I kinda want to watch it, but also I don't because it's probably horrible. What were your favorite lesser-known movies when you were a kid?|
I had kind of a long week. I'm not sure why. It wasn't like anything particularly bad happened. Just feeling blue. Hopefully things will be better tomorrow.
I think I'm gonna do Pippi Longstocking for halloween this year. It would be a good chance to practice my sewing skills! Her outfit wouldn't be too hard.
I should sleep. I don't want to sleep.
My roommate's boy toy got rid of a roosterroach for me. I give him my seal of approval. It was literally the biggest bug I've ever seen in my LIFE.
Link me your fave movies.

| What myth/story/fairytale scared you as a child? - Mood:Good|
Sunday March 25 20182:55:39 PM |
|My friend sent me a picture of something today and it reminded me of fairy rings, which I haven't thought of in a looooong time. My mom used to have this book about fairies, but not the cute kind, the ABSOLUTELY HORRIFYING KIND that would trap you in fairy rings and make you dance with them for all eternity (or until you died, I can't remember which).|
I gotta ask her where that book went. It used to scare the bejeezus out of me. I bet she still has it. She's always been really into fairies.
So, what scared you?
I bought new earrings today. Why? Because I deserve them. And they're adorable.
I also bought tiny coffin boxes so I can send presents to my horror writer friends. Very excited for their reactions!
