30 years... [Sep. 6th, 2012|11:53 pm]
[Current Location |United States, Arizona, Mesa]
[mood |determineddetermined]

I have been dreading the day that begins in approximately 16 minutes for the past, oh, 5 years, that I can remember. Oh! The plans I had for 30! I would be married. I would have kids. Shoot! I'd have kids starting school already.

But, that's not how it worked. And, with 16 minutes until it happens, I can finally say I'm okay with it.

I have an amazing family who loves, supports, and believes in me.
I have equally amazing friends who put up with my complaining, encourage and push me to try new things, and can (and will) laugh at (and with) me.
I have a job that I absolutely love.
I am healthy.
I have been able to travel; buy a house; buy a new car; see one of my best friends get married and have a baby; see more friends fall in love, have babies, and get to experience new things.

I'm not say I don't get sad. I want that love. I want to use some of my pinned ideas for a wedding. And a baby. And more babies. But, I'm finally happy with where I am.

I have a few goals for the next year. I want to stop doubting myself. I want to stop putting myself down when I talk to other people. I want to stop gossiping.

So, lets do this, 30. I'm ready for you!

How do you know when to give up? That it won't work? That trying this early, this hard, is too much?

I love answering my own questions...

Holy cold. I am miserable.
It started with a tickle in the throat on Saturday. Yesterday it was a hacking cough. By last night, I was pretty miserable. I fell asleep at 10pm and slept basically until Kar woke me at 930. I declined our planned Spring Training game, and rolled back over and slept until noon. Had a few sips of water, and a rice crispy treat (scratches the roof of my mouth and throat) and slept for another 5 hours. I've been up for 2.5 hours this time and am starting to get sleepy again. Charlie has been curled up with me the whole time. He whinned twice to get down to pee and that's been it. He can drive me crazy, but he always seems to know when I'm REALLY sick. Or, I was just too drugged up on cold medicine to hear him whine...

I want someone to come clean my hour and organize everything. I really am jealous of the people who have beautiful houses without piles everywhere. It seems like whenever I try to get organized and start a "no pile" rule, it doesn't last. I really need to work on it. That's my quarter-year resolution I think!

Time for more sleep and maybe a nice hot, steamy shower. I'm waiting for Kar to get home with soup.

Hi Justin. I'm Kim. [Jul. 23rd, 2011|10:31 pm]

So today I ventured to the movies to see Friends with Benefits. Alone. Which was another story in itself. Anyway.

I'm always interested to see how Hollywood perceives friends with benefits. I really liked No Strings Attached, so might as well try Friends With Benefits. Annoying thing number one about how Hollywood presents this: the couple always ends up a couple.

Anyway, with all the hubbub around this movie, I was drawn in to the whole "so and so gets asked to the marine ball". This article was posted on ONTD:

Dearest Justin: You don't get asked out. Interesting. I've never seen you on match/eharmony/pof. That's probably why you don't get asked out. Duh. :) For the record, I would gladly go out with you. Let's grab some dinner, some coffee, go ice skating, whatever. Google me. You'll be able to find me. :)

What a busy month already! I had a lecture on the first and had lunch with Andrea. That night was Face to Face with Doug and Erica. Amazing show! I wish I had listened to a little more face to face before the show, but I still loved it. The Nile feels like it hasn't changed at all. I felt like that insecure little high schooler while I stood in line, more than 10 years later. Gotta love that! :)

On the third, Brittanae, PJ and I went tubing down the salt river. So relaxing! It was really flowing too, so that was nice. The fourth was nice and quiet. Kar came home from Showlow and we ended up getting a small storm. Tuesday night we had the biggest dust storm I've ever seen in my life. Of course I got stuck in it. I called mom and dad on my way home, and mom asked if I would pull over and wait out "this dust storm that just hit us." I was just getting onto 10 from work and wanted to get as close to Gilbert as I could. As I passed 40th street, I thought "Damn, I should have listened to my mom." I somehow made it onto 60 (going about 25 mph), and exited at Mill. I pulled into Tom's BBQ parking lot off Baseline and Mill and sat for 30 minutes. Overall, I left the parking garage at work at 733 and got home at 901. So gross.

I worked yesterday. Weekends can be so different than weekdays. The unit just feels different. I think it's because there aren't as many people coming in and out. Today, mom and dad came out and met Kar and I for breakfast at Joes. They came over after breakfast and Dad and I ran to Home Depot for a new thermostat and some other little things. We got back and Kar and Dad put together a new wardrobe for the extra bedroom. Mom and I cleaned the laundry room, changed the air filters (so so so so gross), took the dogs for a ride, and just got things picked up and put together. The wardrobe took forever to put together but Kar and Dad did it and it looks great. We did a quick run to Goodwill, Big Lots, Sam's Club and Walmart. I started the attack on my room and am proud of myself for getting as much done as I did. Although, I cannot wait for Thursday so I can keep my momentum going, hopefully!

Lifestyles of the Rich of the Famous [Jun. 13th, 2011|10:44 pm]

So I got an iphone. I'm not in love. It's so hard to hear on and bleh. I'm bummed. But I'll give it a little bit of time to see if it grows on me. Grated, I love words with friend and hanging with friends... We'll see.

Kar, Erica and I went down to Tucson yesterday and saw Yellowcard and Good Charlotte. Wow. How to feel old, yet have a great time singing songs that make you feel like you're 18-20 years old again! Good Charlotte kept talking about how they were impressed people were singing along to the "old" stuff (that wasn't even THAT old!) and how that album came out 9 years ago. Yeah, I consider the old stuff to be from the self-titled cd. :) Yellowcard put on an awesome show as well. It was fun to see Aileen too. It's a bummer we couldn't hang more.

So I put myself out there and got ignored. Seriously? It's like a dangling a carrot in front of me and then laughing when I lunge for it. Lesson learned. Ignore the carrot.
