Some people are just so stupid! [05 Sep 2005|05:13pm]
[ mood | disgusted ]

To the one who thinks they know all:
No one asked you, anyway. You try spending 2 years of your life with someone and making the joint decision to get married and then come back and talk to me. Not to be rude, but you are most likely a child who understands nothing of relationships or acting as an adult. The resaon I write much about him is that we share a life together.. I know it must be a hard fact to swallow, but yes, we are deeply involved with each other. Our lives are so intertwined. We go to the same school, share mutual friends, have a similar career (Though I have a different job). I know his financial business, and he knows mine.. medical history.. it's all the same thing. He's not just a guy that I date casually. Two years is a mighty commitment. We're planning marriage and children and a life together. Decisions must be made together. I'm sure that the whole joint business and the idea of giving up freedom to find freedom is much too much for your tiny mind to process. And to tell you the truth, I AM a feminist. I'm just not an idiot about it. I am all for the advancement and equal treatment of women. I am a diversity teacher, and therefore promote that. I am also for the respect and equal treatment of men, their feelings, and their emotions and abilities, as well. I love when my honey opens a door for me, but there are times that he knows I need to carry boxes and fix things myself. But trust me, he was my knight in shining armor this week when I ran the batteries down on my car. But, just because I am deeply and joyfully partaking in a beautiful relationship doesn't mean I don't enjoy a wonderful life of my own. I have many obligations and friends outside of my realtionship that enrich my life greatly. I used to hate men and be a general bitch before my relationship began two years ago, but I actually decided to grow up (as you obviously haven't). I love men, I respect them, and I have two very close male relationships other than with my "loving companion" (his term) that I wouldn't give up for anything because they don't only make me happy, they make my relationship more fulfilling because I know it's okay to love another man in a purely platonic fashion. In conclusion, I beseech you to grow up, open your mind, close your mouth, and LOVE A MAN. It'll do a lot for you. I'll thank you to never show your face (or your typeface) here again.

To Pat:
Thank you for such graceful defense, due to the fact that I was unaware such ignorance had marred my recorded thoughts. You are one of the male friends I mentioned. I care for you and respect you greatly, and I think of you often. I hope you are doing well.
All my love,
Laura

Ah... the pen is stronger than the sword, verdad? I'll have to write again soon, He's home, and we're rebuilding a room together with his family, so it's time to get back to work.
Amor.

[26 Aug 2005|03:53pm]
Alright, with two days left until I begin my senior year, I feel I've learned some very valuable lessons this summer. Most of them are purely intended to be funny and make me look even more girly than I actually am, but most of them are actually true, even the fashion and beauty tips. ESPECIALLY THE FASHION AND BEAUTY TIPS!

*It's okay to make decisions without your boyfriend. I bought my homecoming dress by myself this year, and with no input from anyone, and my family and my boyfriend love it.

*It's okay, no, it's really good, to be friends with your boss. I am actually quite close with my bosses, and it not only enhances your work relationship, it enhances your life.

*Yes, work can be fun. And if it's not, make it fun. I work in a hardware store, and there are plenty of "implements of destruction" to play with. My favorite: the expandable rake. My co-workers and I have so much fun that a customer once complimented us on our professional yet playful attitude. She said it was "refreshing", and we ALL laughed.

*My best friend taught me that there is absolutely nothing wrong with buying a CD on a whim, especially if you've never heard of the artist. On our shopping trip together, Chis bought a CD, and I loved it so much that I absolutely had to have a copy of it. Check out: Amos Lee.

*Try things, even if you don't want to go but your partner does. I was absolutely opposed to going to a bonfire with my boyfriend, but I went and actually ended up having a pretty good time.

*Hats are not the enemy. This one is for Phillip. Since we've been dating, I've been adament about the fact that I HATE hats, and I would never wear one. Lo and behold, we ended up in KMart one day, and I saw a cute reversible bucket hat on clearance for three dollars, and I bought it. As it turned out, I loved the hat, and I wear it quite often now to keep my hair out of my face while driving.

* On the subject of driving, it's not what you drive, it's that you can drive and that you have a car to do so.

*Drink water all the time. You always need it.

*Enjoy the time when you have nothing to do, because as soon as school starts, it will be rare.

*Always wear sunscreen. I watched my honey suffer through the worst sunburn I've ever seen in my life, and it's just not worth it. Skin is beautiful no matter what, especially when it's the skin of the one you love.

*Silence doesn't always have to be obliterated with words. I learned that yesterday. I was in the car with my honey for about twenty minutes driving to have dinner with my Grandparents, and we barely said a word on the way there. But I did notice that it was one of the most beautiful, comfortable silences that I've even experienced, and I could still feel his love even if he wasn't saying anything.

*Moisture is a girl's best friend. Moisturizer, body lotion, lip balm and a bottle of water are essentials to every woman.

*You don't have to wear makeup everyday.

* Never listen to your Father's fashion advice. I have a pair of red drawstring cropped pants that I adore, and my father thinks they're just awful. The first time I wore them, my Grandmother and my honey were lavish with compliments and how much they loved them. That was really all that mattered to me. My dad also hates flip flops, another reason to ignore his fashion advice.

*It might be okay to ignore your dad when it comes to fashion, but listen to your boyfriend. I went shopping with mine, and he picked out a top that I really didn't think I liked, but I ended up loving it and buying it. Now, it has become one of my favorite pieces. It's my "go-to outfit" when I need something quick to wear.

*It doesn't matter who someone is, if the need help, you help them.

*Sometimes a name equals quality, and sometimes it doesn't. I was thrilled when my boyfriend and I exchanged Tiffany band rings for our upcoming anniversary. We weren't quite as pleased when they began to tarnish two days later.

*Sometimes cheap is great. I pay 92 cents for a man's shaving cream for my legs, and my guy can attest, they've never been so smooth! Try Barbasol skin conditioner.

*Revel in the most insignificant parts of your relationship. I love watching him shave and dress. I love the way he drives me crazy, teases me to death, and that I still can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him. I love the little things he does just to make me happy. I LOVE his cooking.
I love the way he watches over me.

*Don't, I repeat, DON'T PROCRASTINATE! I put my AP Spanish summer project off , and I probably wouldn't have struggled with it had I done it earlier.

*If you spot something you love, don't be afraid to ask someone where it came from. Most people don't mind divulging such info, and if you pair it with a compliment, they're flattered. I do that with my customers all the time.

*Get rid of something if you don't wear it, love it, or use it. If you don't, find someone who will!

*Don't wait until tomorrow to start eating right, getting in shape, whatever. I'll admit, I'm very guilty of this.

*Know what you want before you go shopping, and don't spend all of your money on food. Just don't spend all of your money. Make sure you know where all of it goes.

Okay, I feel I've graced you with enough of my wisdom. ;) Now it's time to tend to my mani and make sure that I'll actually be ready to go back to school in two days. lol.

[ mood | accomplished ]

Correct me if I'm wrong, but did I actually accomplish everything I set out to do today and MORE? That NEVER happens to me! I'm actually quite pleased with myself. Alright, let's do a rundown, just to be sure:
Went Running? CHECK
Dropped off items at Salvation Army? CHECK
Went to church? Of course.
Okay, so I can't remember all of the other things I said I was going to do, but I know I got them done. Ah, but the pinnacle of my day was the time spent with my favorite boy. We went to the pool to spend time with Anna, our favorite lifeguard/pool attendant. She was accompanied by a very inquisitive little girl who seemed to be completely concerned with the state of our relationship.
Girl: "Are you engaged?"
Me: "Honey, do you want to wear the Daddy pants, and take this one for the team?"
Him: "No, we're not."
Anna: "But they probably will be."
Girl: "But why are you wearing matching rings then?"
***Internal fireworks***
Did I note that the mere mention of our jewelry choices by another makes my skin crawl uncomfortably, especially when it's a member of my family or a peer? True, she was much younger, but it still annoyed me. all I said was "We just really like each other." No, I'm not engaged, I'm not married, I'm just HAPPY.. that's enough.
So, leading away from that, intense hunger ensued, and my only squeeze whisked me away to his castle where a grilled ham and cheese fit for a Queen was lovingly prepared for me. I must mention, it was much better than the one I made apres-running. We ate outside on the swing and took an infinately-romantic stroll around the neighborhood and through the playground of his old elementary school, where we decided to swing on the swings. It was fun and cute, and we spent time in deep conversation, like we haven't in awhile. I was about ready to burst from happiness.
I feel like I'm in school again already. I'm taking a course online this summer through my company, and I've got a bunch of AP Spanish crap to do. I'm muddling my way through Chapter one: automotive. Thank goodness I paid attention in shop at least PART of the time. I know some of this stuff already, and the stuff that I didn't know or remember at least makes sense to me.
What feels like one hour later:
Well, I scored an 86 on chapter one of the test. Only 15 more chapters to go. I can't wait! *eye roll* I think I'm ready to go to bed. Time for chapter two tomorrow. Nighty.

[31 Jul 2005|12:02am]
[ mood | peaceful ]

The joys of summer. It's midnight.. I'm typing on my computer and happily reading a book (Hot Relationships, by Tracey Cox, if anyone is curious) after a long day at work. I came home with my favorite boy, made myself a french vanilla cappuccino (sprite for my non-coffee loving boy toy), and we settled in to watch the usual, (and my favorite) stand-up comedy. True, unaltered bliss. Sometimes, I just wish there were more hours in the day to enjoy it. I must admit, I did wish time went a little slower while I was luxuriating in my post-coffee, post-fooling-around euphoric haze laying on the chest I love most. (If that was more than you need to know, sorry.. it's just the truth.)
Even better? Another two days off. All of this inventory is starting to get on my nerves. I was told by my boss that I'd be doing no inventory prep, which made no sense to me. But, since he is my boss and a truly lovely man, I conceded; shut myself up, and went along with it. I guess that WAS the plan, until today. I was then notified that I have to start getting my stockroom ready. I quickly let my other boss know that Dave (the 80 year old man I share a dept. with who calls me "His treasure."), was doing our stockroom, per Greg. "Are you kidding? Dave can't count anymore!" "Oh, good point. Well, hand me some tags, I've got a lot of work to do."
I won't be working on my stockroom for almost another week.. which really puts the squeeze on me, when inventory is in a month, and the stock crew messes up my pristine stockroom on a consistent basis. I'm going to have to start leaving them instructions, like the paint advisor does.
Mmm.. I think that tomorrow I'll read a bit, maybe do some spanish work, drop some things off at the Salvation Army (too bad they're only open for donations and not shopping on Sunday), and/or take a run with myself or take a stroll with my "loving companion." Maybe both! I always end up planning more than I do, anyway.
I think that right now, though, is the perfect time for bed. My bed looks so cozy right now, even though I have to clear a bunch of stuff off of it before I can even attempt to lay on it without getting a flatiron in the back ("Put me back in the linen closet, and nobody gets hurt." Imagine if our styling tools could talk!) Just think, the quicker I go to bed, the quicker I'll be up in the morning for my cup of quasi-coffee, quick shower, and dress clothing for religious assembly! *laugh* Goodnight.

Much to do with nothing. [28 Jul 2005|11:49pm]
[ mood | relaxed ]

My internet is finally up and running again after a painful three week forced hiatus. No, it wasn't really that bad, but I noticed that when I didn't have the option to go online was when I really wanted to. Ironic. Now I am able to, and I really just want to go to bed. I knew having a computer in my room was a bad thing...
Well, today was actually kind of busy, which wasn't really what I wanted for a day off. I haven't really had any days with absolutely nothing yet. I went to Twelve Oaks with my mother this morning, and other than two keychains that I absolutely LOVED (One from Fossil, one from Michael Kors), nothing thrilled me. I ended up helping my Grandma, and then my boyfriend and I pretty much spent the night at home, which is my favorite kind of night. I am not blissfully catching up with Cosmo online and luxuriating in the fact that my brother doesn't come home until tomorrow, so I really should stay up all night since I don't have to get up in the morning. It is so quiet in this house, I LOVE IT! I hate that I love reading Cosmo so much, but I can't subscribe to it because if my mother ever got the mail before I did, my life would officially be over. I'll just have to settle for Instyle and my Bridals until my eighteenth, when I've decided that I'm going to buy them and lock them away when I'm done with them. Hah.
Ah, my bed looks so cozy. It would look even better if there wasn't a scanner on it. A few more articles, and I'm off.
Nighty...

[ mood | hungry ]

So yeah, I'm deciding to update while I'm stuck watching the all-star game, which I should be excited to see, but I'm really not. I just don't care about watching another baseball game when I just came from watching my boyfriend officiate one.
In other news, my spanish texts came today, and I've decided to dedicate myself to actually reading them instead of just throwing them in my bag until school starts and senora mas actually makes me DO something with myself.
I'm kind of looking forward to school now, since I haven't really seen any of my friends since school got out, and I'm looking forward to being a senior and getting back into the gym and such. And, considering that I have about thirty pounds I'd like to lose, getting into the gym sooner rather than later would be nice.
I also got to talk to my best friend today for the first time in a long time. Since I haven't talked to anyone since school got out and certainly no one has called me, I've been lonely as hell. I'd probably wilt away if it wasn't for my boyfriend and my grandma, who I was beginning to believe were my only friends. I felt like an old man whose children didn't want anything to do with him.
Well, I suppose I ought to get back to studying. I almost worry that I'll study myself out before school even starts, and then I won't all year long. I want to go for a walk, but there is no pulling him away from the TV. More tomorrow, if my computer is working.
Amor.

"You're such a good girl" [05 Jul 2005|09:49pm]
[ mood | relaxed ]

Today was definately the longest day, other than yesterday. ;) I got to work at about noon... early enough to see my beloved bending over to pick up pallets on the front sidewalk. Yum. Basically spent the day working in my departments making sure things were running smoothly. I ended up re-merchandising three shelves, and it took forever. I was praised very nicely today, and I appreciated it greatly. There were so many things to do, but by the end of the day, there was absolutely nothing, and I was going out of my mind!
Time to go.. time for our nightly "whose line" date.
I love this life.

[03 Jul 2005|02:01pm]
Just to let anyone know that read my entry from yesterday, it was intended to be amusing. Yes, I can be a bit ditzy and really girly, but I am not stupid or superficial in the least, and my entry was not intended to project such an image. It was written for the sole purpose of amusing my "loving companion" and my best friend.
More later. I must get back to my nails ;) (also, just a joke)
In the words of Senora Mas, "Thank you, goodbye."

[ mood | nostalgic ]

Well, upon meeting the man of my dreams approximately two years ago, I decided to follow biological suit and let him be the man and I will be the woman. Makes sense, right? Well, I didn't quite expect it to go this far. For him, here's what I've become.
I'VE BECOME SO MUCH OF A GIRL THAT:
*Half of the email in my inbox is from clinique.
*I would actually consider carrying a small dog in a purse (provided it wished to ride with me).
*Don't even get me started about purses.
*I own an italian designer purse (Prada! The purse to end all purses!)
*I hyperventilate when approaching a pet store (I do that a lot).
*I go nowhere without moisturizer, lipgloss, and hand cream.
*I own shoes I can't walk in.
*I own more than two pairs of shoes that "serve no purpose", according to my dream guy.
*I cry way too often for no reason.
*I own more pink and white than the breast cancer association.
*I have and actually follow a skin-care regimen.
*I giggle way too often as well.
*I own more hair products than I have hair.
*My hair usually smells nice.
*I acutally worry about my hair when it rains.
*I have a professional flatiron that heats up to 7000 degrees in 3.5 seconds.
*I know the difference between a wallet and a small leather good.
*My home page could be set to women.msn.com
*I've actually asked "Does this make me look fat?"
*I own and wear a thong. (You're welcome)
*I survive off of InStyle, Harper's Bazaar, and any and all bridal publications.
*I love pretty, glittery things.
*I have a group of giggly friends.
*When I enter a store, I go in this order : makeup, hair, purses, clothes, shoes.
*I definately think way too much about accessories.
*I am manicured and pedicured as we speak.
*I have a beautiful jewelry box full of jewelry from my beloved that I absolutely adore wearing.

I think he needs to read this now, before things get out of hand. I'll fill you in on the results later.

Not enough hours in the day.. [02 Jun 2005|07:55pm]
[ mood | loved ]

I just don't have enough time to update right now.. I feel kinda bad, because I had no idea that anyone actually took the time to stop and read my little, unimportant and mainly dormant journal. I promise that as soon as school is over, I'll spend like a week writing the biggest entry known to man recapping my year before I go on vacation. Just be patient with me!
xxoo,
Laura

Hey, have an extra hour (or two) tonight? Watch the OC. That's what I'll be doing.

My best friend went to Mackinac last weekend, and I miss her terribly. I love you, Chrissie! Can't wait to see you tomorrow. Drum major practice afterschool today. I really just want it to be over so I can find out if I made it or not, because that's really the bottom line. You know, it's so hard to keep everything straight sometimes. I'll be really happy once shop is over. I love my partners so much, don't get me wrong, but I'm tired of not being able to dress how I want when I want, and I hate being dirty.. I work at home and that's okay. I don't mind that. My mom told me that I can take over all of my Brother's work and make $15.00 a week. I think that's great. I'm still going to work outside on Saturdays while my loving companion is at baseball and probably on Sundays, too. I miss baseball!!! I was so desparate that I sincerely thought about turning on the TV last night with the hopes of finding a baseball game on TV. Yeah, that's bad. I know I ramble. I don't care. I only have a limited amount of time, and the people that need to know already do. But I did go shopping last night and took in my cameras to be developed. I can't wait to get them back. I bought an awesome collage frame that I can't wait to fill. Let's just say that I hope the last ones I took turned out. I need some tape.

Yeah, so yesterday was good and yesterday was bad. My Grandpa died a month ago. My parents took my cat to the Humane society. But on the up side, I bought the most gorgeous red satin homecoming dress for FIVE DOLLARS. Yes, that's right, FIVE DOLLARS. Yeah, and I ended up talking to Mr. Braue about Drum Major, and he said everything's going to work out fine and that I have a good chance if my interview and test goes well. It's really just as much about personality as it is about the test going well. I also got nominated to go to Washington D.C again, and this time I'm actually old enough.

Yeah, so my significant other casually mentioned "You never update anymore" last night. There's too much to say, and not enough hours in the day. Ha, that rhymes! Kinda like "Se ata la corbata" < and that one really made me laugh. I've just got a lot going on, and not enough time to organize it when I could just shout it out as I pass people in the hallway. Later, in a hurry!

"Those fingers in my hair, that sly 'come hither' stare, it's witchcraft." [25 Jan 2004|02:47pm]
[ mood | relaxed ]

Okay, so a whole Sunday afternoon with nothing to do at all motivates me to make some room for my keyboard, and clear things up. Okay, since last update, I had my sixteenth birthday. That's all we'll say. We took exams, they were blissfully easy, and I always get nervous for nothing. It's just my nature. I moved on to auto 2, and I have yet to begin enjoying it. I've only had it once, and I walked away smelling like more exhaust than I EVER did in auto one. Overall, my routine is the same, only a lot busier. I started training to be a diversity facilitator at school through the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) and I'm having the time of my life with it. I'm absolutely happy. Getting involved and doing things like that makes me feel like a better person. I'm much happier with myself now that I'm making moves to do the things that make me happy. I don't feel like I'm just stuck here all the time doing nothing by myself. The start of the second semester on Wednesday or so threw my life into hyperdrive. I'm organized, and I actually get things done. I don't know what to do with myself!
