Clementine the cat and the things I will do for nailpolish freedom


Friends, foes, and fellow readers:

It’s been a while.  I wish I could say I’ve been busy, but I don’t lie in my blogs.  Between Netflix, having only 1 Community College Finals (note, I specifically put in the type of final.. because it’ll be THAT easy), and this beautiful weather, I’ve been gliding through life.  It’s amazing how happy and positive you can feel just because of a little sunshine.  That sunshine brings out little flowers and lots on animals.  Instead of picking flowers though, I brought home an animal…

I am the proud momma of Clementine Deutschman.  Clementine is a beautiful orange fluffball that like kitten chow and small bowls of milk.  When he isn’t sleeping or being harassed by my siblings, Clementine can be found hissing at my other cat Tangerine (get the names now? Yeah, I’m creative!) or visiting the vet due to his many ailments.

$150 dollars later, I have found out that like many mothers I underestimated the cost of my child.  Talk about a money sucking black hole.

A very cute money sucking black hole though.

And once you find out that additional costs are accruing, it would only be practical to quit your job.. right?

Welp.  That’s what I did!  I’ve enjoyed my time at Coach, but would like a little freedom for the summer.. and I would like to get away from handbags (unless I’m buying them myself).  I’m not living off of mommy and daddy though, I have to be able to eventually afford Manhattan after all: I got a new job!

*round of applause, fire works, those obnoxious whistles you hear at sporting events*

I will be waitressing on weekends at the Youngstown Yacht Club.

The hours are less, but the pay is better and it’s uncharted territory.  I’m excited to take a risk and get belittled by people over food instead of handbags.

LOL.

But seriously, I know what I’m in for.  I just want a change of scenery and Coach wouldn’t cooperate with working at both the Yacht Club and there.  I hope it’s everything I want it to be..  Khakis and a polo are the proper attire, it’s certainly preppy enough.

And I’ll be meeting A LOT of people over filet mignon, just maybe not the way I expected to.

I also applied for weekday jobs and a few ice cream places, but that’s just because I know I’m going to be bored eventually.

And also for my sanity once the kids come home for the summer.

I could just get a hobby, find a blogging club.. buy a cute little pink bike to ride around the neighborhood.  Something.

But how fantastic is it that I will finally have time to breath, stop constantly working (both with school and a job), and paint my finger nails whatever color I want?

I knew I wouldn’t last long with Coach’s nail polish communism.

Their loss.

The Dearest Award


Hey dolls!

Apparently there is an award circling cyberspace and the blogosphere called the Liebster award.  In English, this is the Dearest Award.  I was recently nominated by a fellow Bloggette and I am spreading the love.

liebster

The rules are as follows:

1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions that the tagger has set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. No tag backs!

11 things about me:

1.  I find Miley Cyrus really annoying.

2.  My lowest class out of 23 credits right now is a 97.  #nerdalert

3.  My cat’s name is Tangerine.  She’s not fat, she’s fluffy!

fluffy

4.  I have wanted to adopt a chinese daughter since I was 10.

5.  I don’t have any tattoos and once I got through the Super White Girl anchor tattoo phase, I decided I was okay with that.

6.  Foursquare  and Google Plus confuse me, so I don’t use them.

7.  My computer’s name is Father Machiavelli.

8.  My feet are two different sizes.

9.  I’m a Virgo -just like Charlie Sheen.

10.  Something Borrowed is my favorite movie.

11.  I’m currently obsessed with the song “How to be a Heartbreaker” by Marina and the Diamonds

Watch the music video: here!

To answer nyxiies questions:

1. Her confidence. Many girls wear the most radical ridiculous outfits yet are considered fashion icons. I believe it is definitely because they shine through the mixed patterns and truly is confident in her look.
2. Wasting a perfect outfit on an insignificant day.
3. Death: it’s glitterless and unpredictable.
4. My spring break in march the week of the 17th last year, the days kind of blended. My aunts adopted and spoiled me to pieces last year when I stayed with them in Savannah, GA. I had the honor of living in an apartment with my own bedroom and bathroom, looking out into 70 degree weather, brick sidewalks, and palm trees. I went to 5 star restaurants and shopped to the extreme.
5. If I was Ultimate Ruler of the Earth for 2 days, I would probably die of a heart attack from stress. I give such credit to the people that take on such powerful roles.. I can barely figure my own life out, much less the lives of almost 7 billion other people.
6. The little peninsula we camped near when I was 10 in Cape Cod. There were Star Fish and Sand Dollars all over the place.
7. Meeting new people and doing new things, on my own.
8. Arrogant people. Confidence can make you beautiful (see question 1), but it can also ruin you and the people around you in heavy doses..
9. Terrified. Judgement is everywhere. It’s survival of the fittest in 5 inch pumps! Darwin couldn’t prepare us for that one.
10.
