Vacation time!

April 29th, 2008

Starting tomorrow, I’m going to be spending a week in NY XD I’ve decided not to bring my laptop since I probably won’t have internets.

I packed last night, but I’m probably going to re-choose my clothes. It’s warm in Texas right now, usually over 80 degrees F, yet it’s around 60 in NY. So yeah, all those short sleeved shirts I packed, I might want to re-think.

The bf and I finally planned out what we’re going to see, although one or two days will be spent with relatives from both sides of my family. They finally get to meet my bf. Funny thing is? My dad’s side is pretty traditional and were surprised when I wasn’t dating someone Chinese… and then were surprised again when they found out he wasn’t even Asian ^^;; Oh well!

Anyway, see you next week ;)

The joys of moving

April 16th, 2008

After the second time I locked my keys in the car, I became paranoid and constantly check for them. Yet, I somehow locked them in my trunk yesterday (must have fallen out of my purse as I was loading things into it?). Luckily! I don’t keep my apartment keys and car keys on the same ring. So, I was able to get a co-worker to drive me home, get my spare car key, and come back to unlock it. Hurrays. Incase anyone is as clumsy as me with car keys… it’s nice to keep other keys separate from it… =O

Well, without internet or cable TV (doesn’t get installed until today), I actually spent last night unpacking almost everything in my new apartment. I was dreading that because of all the small random crap that I have that I don’t know what to do with. Anyway, all I have left is to set up my sewing machines and hang up my pictures again. (Then I can start on my Pit costume!)

I still need to buy some things. I have been living with roommates for years, so I was able to share some things without having to buy them. One of which is a microwave. You just don’t realize how awesome that thing is until it’s late at night, you haven’t had dinner yet, and you just want to heat up something real quick. But…! No microwave…! Sadness. I ordered pizza instead. I pretty much lack anything and everything that has to do with the kitchen, because I’ve been using my roommate’s stuff. Even basic stuff like plates and bowls, which I had to recently buy.

Anyway! Enough of my moving woes. I’ll get pictures of my new place up soon =P

Life at the moment

April 8th, 2008

I am obsessed with these shoes. I normally don’t care about my shoes because I wear $5 flip flops to work every day, but these were too cute. I just had to buy.

Sad thing is, my jeans are usually long enough that they cover most of my feet. Oh well, at least I know they’re there =O

Anyway, the bf and I got approved for our vacation time. Now to buy tickets. We are going to NYC! I used to live in NY and visit NYC almost every year, so it’s nothing new to me. But, he’s never been, and I want to take him around the city. We’re also saving money by staying at my grandpa’s place in Brooklyn. I think I’ve been to every major “touristy” place in NYC, yet when I try to think of where to take him, I come up blank, heh. Part of the reason is probably because I think, “mm… been there, done that, it kind of sucked, let’s not go again.” I’ll have to come up with enough stuff to do for a week.

Aannddd… you never realize how much crap you have until you move. I’ve made several trips, moving a few boxes at a time, to my new apartment, yet it still feels like I have so much more to go. I guess it’ll feel that way until I actually start moving furniture. I’m such a pack rat though! You’d think I’d learn since I have been moving to a new apartment every year for the past 5 years. Of course… I never do, and I just end up buying more crap.

Ending note: I beat Phoenix Wright 3 finally and… zomg, that was really, really good.
