Do you ever just wish you had a little more money? Ugh! That's me every day of my life! LOL OK, maybe I sound a little too materialistic. But, this blog is about being HONEST! :)

I really Really REally REAlly REALly REALLy REALLY wish I could afford a whole wardrobe of American Apparel. Sure, I have a few AA shirts, a dress, a scarf, and some accessories, but I want more! I'm a greedy American Apparel whore. It's not like their clothes are terribly expensive, especially since they're a sweatshop-free, made-in-the-U.S.A. brand. It's just that I'm so very very poor. And with my Wet Seal discount, I'm basically forced to shop where I work. Bleh.

Here are some pieces I have been ogling over today:

Shirred-back panties 3-pack: $27


Sleeveless lace chiffon dress: $58


Cotton rib jacket: $68

Legalize Arizona t-shirt: $17

Sheer rib long-sleeve turtle-neck

Style RSAS306

Unisex corduroy 5-pocket short: $44
Style RSACD402G

And there's so much more, but I'm too tired to list it all... Alas, maybe one day I will be able to afford my dream wardrobe!

It's been too long!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while! Maybe if I actually had readers, I would be more inclined to write regularly... ;)

My latest obsession is Farmville on Facebook. I used to look at that and think, "how stupid!" Why would anyone ever want to play Farmville? And now I'm that person! I can be such a hypocrite sometimes. Then again, we all are at times! I'm at level 11 right now. I've only been playing for about 3 days now. It's so fun!

My job at Wet Seal is going well. I have the most hours of any of the sales associates. I would want to be a manager, but I don't really want the responsibility. When you're the manager, everything that happens in the store is on your shoulders. It's not like people's lives are at stake, but still, it's money! And trust me, in retail, money is number one. If you're not making the sales goals, you're in big trouble. I don't think I'm ready for that. I'm kind of enjoying the whole folding t-shirts thing. It's not stressful at all. Although I did break a sweat today organizing the denim wall! Woe is me...

Well, hopefully I'll start posting more often! :)

Rainy Day

Sorry it's been a few days since my last entry. I've been trying to be consistent, but I've really been in my own world lately.

Today has been very tiring, and somewhat depressing, but overall not bad...

I woke up at about 7 AM on accident because there was this weird scraping-tapping-type noise right outside my window. I really can't figure out what it was. I was going to go look in see, but I was scared it was some weirdo outside. I know that's irrational to think, but that really was my first thought: 'Maybe somebody's trying to scare me... by tapping on the wall... repeatedly in a rhythmic pattern..." It makes no sense, I know. Anyway, I couldn't go back to sleep because the noise just wouldn't stop. It kept going and going. I knew I had to get up in a couple hours to call in to work to see if they needed me, so I went ahead and took a shower, hoping that by the time I was finished, the noise would have stopped. I was pleased when it did.

So, I went right back to sleep after my shower and slept for another hour or so. I was on-call this morning, which means I have to call in an hour before it's time for me to be at work to see if they actually need me. I started calling in at 9, but they would not pick up the phone. I was worried I had somehow had the wrong number, even though I call it all the time. I called back over and over and over again for an hour before someone finally answered and told me I would not have to be there.

I tried going back to sleep, but I couldn't. You know when you're tired, but it's impossible to sleep? There was just too much on my mind, I guess. Then, it started pouring. It actually poured all day, which in turn, made me feel all depressed. My boyfriend and I were bickering with each other all day because we were both in bad moods... I hope tomorrow is better. It's my official day-off, even though I had a day-off today too. I hope it's sunny, but it probably won't be. I also hope I can make some progress in finding myself a better job.

I'm just blabbering now.

Goodnight! I'll make more sense tomorrow.

Great day, but my feet are killing me!

Today was full of ups and downs... So here's the good and the bad:

The good:

1. I got to work today! More work means more money for me, and more experience, so I can move up in the ranks!
2. I got to meet with the BSM director about being a conversation partner for an international student. Teaching English as a second language is one of my passions, and I would like to make it into a career one day. Hopefully I make some connections and this will help me get a better job!
3. I got to so shopping, which included using my 40% off discount at Wet Seal. I also got some new shoes at the mall. They're comfy moccasins I can wear to work. Hopefully they'll keep my feet from hurting so much!
4. I got to see the movie Inception with my boyfriend. It was pretty good, but kind of confusing and weird. Oh Leo...

The bad:
1. My feet hurt like hell from working. Walking back and forth throughout the store really wears out my feet...
2. I spent waaayyy too much money.
3. I looked at my bank account today and realized it's split itself in half during the past couple months.
4. I feel completely fat from all the movie candy I ate.

So that pretty much sums up my day. I guess the good can cancel out the bad this time, but I really need to A) get some comfy shoe inserts, B) Start budgeting myself, and C) Get back on my diet.

I highly doubt I'll meet my goals anytime in the next few days, but I'm going to try!

My day of rest

This has been my first relaxing day in a while. I was on call today at work, but they said they didn't need me, so I mainly spent time playing Sims 3, and Mahjong on my XBox. It was really nice, but I feel a little bit restless. I did get to work out, so that was good. I think I made my boyfriend kind of aggravated today. We never really fight, but I think sometimes we get on each other's nerves and it's all awkward. Like, he doesn't want to be mean, so he just doesn't say anything, and then I can't always figure out what I did wrong. Basically, I think he's getting tired of driving me to work and driving me to the gym and driving me home all the time. It's not that he doesn't want to do it, it's just different than what he's been used to. I just got my license, and I don't have a car. He'd let me borrow his, but I'm just not that good of a driver yet. We've been practicing though! Anyway, I think I'm going to give him a break tomorrow and let him just sleep in, and play video games all day if that's what he wants to do... Ugh boys...They are strange creatures. I'm the kind of person who needs to go out and do things, and he would much rather sit on his butt all day in front of some sort of screen. LOL I know there are worse things to worry about!

Thanks for letting me vent a little bit tonight, dearest blog... ;)

Hilary Duff... I love her!

So I was thinking today, when I look through pictures of celebrities on blogs and in magazines, I always stop on Hilary Duff. I know some people think she's cheesy, but I think she's great. I really liked her on Lizzie McGuire when she was younger, but I think some of her best stuff has been recently. I saw her in According to Greta, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. You can really see how she's grown as an actor (and as a woman). She's beautiful. Although she's had her ups and downs, she has always seemed very healthy with her weight. Even though she's been in the spotlight for over ten years, she's never gone overboard to try to please the media. You can tell she cares about what she looks like, and that she does try to stay in shape and have a good figure, but she's not crazy thin. I can't wait to see her in the upcoming film, Bonnie and Clyde!

2nd Day at work

I LOVE MY NEW JOB! It's really fun. My boss is really nice, and I get to work with clothing and such. I feel like I'm way over-qualified for this position, BUT my boss already told me (on my second day), that she's going to train me to become assistant manager in a few months. I feel kind of lame for wanting to be "assistant manager" so bad, but I really need a full time job at something I enjoy. I'm trying to save up for a car, and part-time just isn't going to cut it.

So I have to make a confession. I've totally said "screw it" about my whole losing weight thing. I'm not going CRAZY about food or anything, but for now, I just want to worry about my job and that's it. I've been working out almost everyday, so hopefully I will remain at a below-average weight, but I think it might be a few weeks before I start trying to lose weight again.

Apparently I'm not the only one reconsidering her dieting ways. Kourtney Kardashian was quoted as saying the extreme diet regimen she's been following was "just not worth it." As much as being thin feels, sometimes it's just too stressful starving yourself!

Audrina Patridge is the new face of Bongo Jeans! I almost forgot about that brand... but now I want some... I loved her on The Hills!

Sarah Jessica Parker is looking SO thin these days! Look at her bony arms! Although a part of me is a little jealous, I have to say...
