"The Saddest Thing In Life Is Wasted Talent"

What a melancholy title, huh? Lol. Don't worry, I come with great-ish news.

I'm going to start off by saying I HAVE FINALLY MOVED. Everything is set up. I can actually sleep in the apartment without a nightlight on (that means I'm comfortable, folks). So that is what I have been spending all of these days doing through a power outage, various days of applying to jobs and a couple of family outings.

I see that big things have happened - like blogger finally getting it's life in order and giving itself a makeover. I still don't really have any idea how to find your sites through this new navigation but I'm sure it'll happen sooner or later.

I've been spending my days cleaning and cooking, so yes, I'm getting the wifey points up. I even entertained this past weekend! I started fantasizing about possibly being a housewife and leaving the money making to my man since I'm getting so good at these domestic duties, but then I remembered that I need to have the money to buy my own shoes and Sims games.

Fun fact - My first "real" job at 16 was at Walgreens where, I promise you, I got it so I could save up for all of the Sims 2 expansion packs. I got all of them and almost quit after I made enough money. Are you judging?

True Blood is an episode away from going away for a whole year and it. is. killing. me.

Special shout out to all of you who tweeted, messaged, email'd  me, sent smoke signals, etc., trying to see if I survived the hurricane and was ever going to blog again. So, um,  I did. Yay! More consistent posts to come!

  9. Thanks for checking out my blog! It really is too much fun to write, and he never leaves me short on material!

    So good to hear you survived the hurricane and congrats on the new house! Also- I laughed out loud at the Walgreen's story. I am so jealous that you had all the Sims expansion packs. You win "coolest kid ever." Hope your next job is equally rewarding!

  10. Congrats on the move!!! I tried to play Sims a while back yet just have problems w/ it

  11. 1) I'm glad you're okay
    2) I'm glad you're back

    @Shelby – Lol, yeah I know. I suck for that :( But I’m about to catch up on you and all your blog posts that I’ve missed!

    @TC – You’re back in Dallas, huh? :) Good for you! And did you change your icon picture? It’s so pretty!

    @ASMJ – Missed you too, love!! *Blog hug*

    @Kam – The city is fun. . .too much fun, hahah. There’s like 1,238,847 ways to spend money unintentionally. Once you get your room lookin’ all nice and presentable, I wanna c pictures!

    @Stiletto – Woah! True Blood is on Netflix now?! Is it on insta-play?

    @Jill – Yeah I think I could do the housewife thing for like a month, but I don’t like the idea of having to ask my man for money, or anyone for that matter.

    @Wi – I could never stop writing entirely. Life just makes me busy, lol. It’s exhausting :O but yes – I am back for real.

    @Andrea – aww you stopped by! Yayy :) lol Thank you for announcing me as “the coolest kid ever.” I was really afraid that I had an unhealthy obsession with that EA game but apparently a lot of people did.

    @Mr. Johnson – Really?? You gotta play with all the expansion packs installed and on a really fast PC with extra RAM. Okay, I’m done now, lol.

    @Mac – 1) <3
    2) Glad to be hear ;)

  17. wooow.. you are brave... i am so scared to move out not that my parents will let me.

    but i decided to change my blog url and that has kinda messed me up lol
    but its


  18. It's so refreshing to hear a young woman my age discuss where she is at now while humorously reflecting on where she came from. And let me tell YOU girlllll, I can relate to your stories, that's why I have the HUGEST smile on my face right now.

    My first "real" job was when I was a Sophomore in high school and for $6 an hour. I worked in order to afford Jordans and Nike 'kicks' and for the ability to purchase off-campus lunch as I very well pleased (yes, we were able to cop food of campus..!)

    Now I'm settling into my new place as well. I'm finding so much more fun in "domesticating" myself. I get an odd sense of satisfaction when all things are cleaned, my fridge is full, and the stove has something hot on top of it courtesy of "moi".

    Great post, as always!
