Don't call it a comeback

What's this? A Triple Whammy Post!

I can't believe it's already Thursday. I'm gunna be honest - I don't know how you people with full time jobs, kids, lives, etc. do this whole blogging consistently (about something people care to read about) thing. And it's sad because in my profession I really should know how to it. #Kanyeshrug

HOWEVER, I'm going to learn! Because guess who got a full-time job!? Okay, I'll tell you. ME.

I can no longer spend my days bullshitting on Netflix  job searching because I have my first official, 9-to-5 gig. This is as real as real gets, folks. Had to put on my big girl pants and at first it was an odd fit, but I'm filling them out now.

And to think it all happened before I had the opportunity to get this shirt...

HIRE ME Got Job? t-shirt

The best part? This is a job in my field where I'm not being exploited! I can't get into detail about it (well, I can - but what's the fun in that?) but I will say that I get to write about shows like Dance Moms a lot more, and you know how much that puts a smile on my face.

A HUGE thank you to Stiletto Minded for this Kreativ Blogger award! Every time I receive a blog award I'm always appreciative and I'm always surprised.

For some reason I always think, "Yay! Someone likes my blog! I'm probably not going to get another one so I better savor this", lol. Check out Stiletto Minded's blog for her thoughts on love, fashion and life in general!

The Rules: Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to their site, award 10 other bloggers, fill out this survey (I've filled it out before) and share 7 random facts about yourself.

7 Facts: I still take bubble baths with Disney Princess-themed hypoallergenic/dermatologist recommended soap, I'm the oldest of 5, My current boyfriend is my 3rd and last boyfriend, My "big little" brother goes to Binghamton U and he's in his sophomore year, in college I was an RA (Resident Assistant), I listen to Jazz because of my grandfather's influence, and I think shower curtains are kind of pointless.

Awards go toooo. . .

Check out their pages and hopefully you'll enjoy them as much as I do!

I think someone else out there also gave me an award (a whiiiiile ago) and whoever you are -  I apologize, but I can't find your comment! Lol. Thank you, though! Comment on this post and let me know so I can follow your award rules too.


& Finally, thanks from J for the Happy Birthday wishes! He felt famous and especially appreciated those comments about him being cute. Lol.


  1. Hold up. You get to do reviews on shows that are OPEN to extreme criticism & extended side-eyes due to over the top characters who need to have a seat.... Or 2: \_ \_

    I guess it's safe to say that someone is WINNING this 4th quarter of 2011, huh? Lol..

    Congrats, babe!

  2. Congrats on the job boo. I just got one too...well a graduate assistantship but whatever, same thing lol.

    I used to think shower curtains were pointless too until i took a shower without one and wet up my whole bathroom floor lol. Gotta at least have a shower liner lol...and a rug.

Can't go wrong with Disney themed anything really lol and I also listen to music that my grandparents listened to.

  15. @SOJO • Your “seats” are too cute. Lol. I’m so usin’ that. & I don’t get to write reviews exactly – It’s more social media-esque. & thank you! :D

    @LadyNgo • Shower linings are probably the most necessary, I’ll agree with that :)

    @ASMJ • Thank ya kindly! :)

    @SassyUptownChic • You’re very welcome! *hugs back*

    @Shane, Wi, Ashley, Marielle, Shannon, Ms. Composure, Shantik • Ty :)

    @Jess • Post scheduling! I didn’t even think of that! Thank you :) & you’re welcome for the award!

    @Bonnie • De nada! <3

    @Andrea • I feel like Disney makes a lot of things (not everything, but a lot) seem so much more magical. Even bath soap lol.

  16. Congrats on the award!

  17. CONGRATS CARRYMEL you're such a star!! What was your major / degree in! I'm so happy to see you writing because you are an amazing writer. Me & Soraya talk about you all the time, lol.

    Today's discussion about you was about:
    a) how SMART you are -- how in the WORLD were you able to get the 10/10 thing with me simply saying "10 post to come". It blew my mine and almost made me give up on life.
    b) how GREAT you are -- your blog is "official tissue" (as Soraya said). I looked up to you when I first discovered you in April and immediatly passed you on to SOJO. Good stuff.
    c) how AMAZING you are -- your posts are always necessary for life to function!
