I’ve been out and about from sunrise to sunset for the past few days so I haven’t taken the time to write out a blog entry, but my mom and I are waiting for a dinner reservation right now so I figured I’d write.
I really don’t like sentimental mumbo jumbo, so this probably won’t be some grand reflection on the year. I just wanna write out my thoughts.
I’m so happy to be where I am. I tend to not enjoy most things celebrational because I tend to have pretty unexceptional celebrations. But I’m at disney world right now!!
I’m 100% the type of person to make new years resolutions (which I already wrote out in october because duh), and I just thought of a new one.
I want to celebrate stuff next year.
This whole year I haven’t done anything to celebrate anything other than blog posts. I didn’t have a birthday party, I took a nap after my graduation ceremony.
Yeah, I think I want to get excited about stuff in 2019.
That’s my last entry of 2018.
Let’s end this with what- in my opinion- is the best photo of me this year.
Last night, she was attacked by Maddie. After prying Maddie off of her, she screamed for what felt like a minute straight and for the rest of the night, every time she walked or tried to move she would scream, cry, and whimper.
When my mom got home, she saw the state of Peanut’s leg and made the decision to take her to an emergency vet.
We spent about 5 hours there waiting, debating prices and treatment, and figuring out payment.
Peanut’s hip is dislocated.
She’ll probably need surgery some time soon.
We got her some anti-inflammatory and pain meds, so she shouldn’t be hurting too too bad.
Luckily I’m not on a time crunch today so hopefully this won’t be quite as bad of an entry as yesterdays.
I have a lot of things to say that I think will only give me about 2 paragraphs of content each (maximum) so I’ll give each topic a header.
Good Post Coming Up
I’ve been working on a blog post for about 4 days at this point that I hope you guys will like. I don’t wanna reveal anything about it, but it should be posted tomorrow or the next day. I feel like the post I have brewing will really be a big stepping stone in my blogging career, for real. It should hopefully draw new readers to my blog and make a few fellow bloggers happy. Are you excited yet?
BiscuitsXMonsters Put Up My Picture!
I think I told you guys that they asked me to take some product photos for their online store an well… the photos are up! I feel like a model or something!
P.S you can use my code “dearmikah” for free shipping on their site, I don’t get paid for it so if you hate me don’t worry you won’t pay me for buying some of the cute stuff on there. I genuinely support the brand.
As you guys may know, I work at a clothing store. I make a little over minimum wage and I don’t get a ton of hours because I’m part time but guess what…
My boss offered to promote me to a assistant manager!
So I should be getting more hours (I won’t let this get in the way of my writing) and a raise! Alongside getting a title of course.
A manager quit so my store manager wants to fill the space she left. She also asked me if I’m interested in doing visuals for the store and of course I’m into that so…. YAY!
I love this!
Hopefully I’ll be able to put more money toward my blog with my raise so you can have an even better experience!
No, my article I didn’t like hasn’t been edited, but I do have some good freelancing news!
My Seedling Magazine article will be republished on littlegreenseedling.com so you guys can read it without having to download a copy of Seedling! This is to get the word out about the great pieces in Seedling so if you go over there and like what you see, please download their magazine!
I’m not being paid to say this by the way. If I ever have a real sponsored post, I’ll disclose it because I know you guys trust me and I really value that.
I’ll remind you guys of this on the day it’s put up on the website so you can click a link directly to it.
I still want bangs and I’m still excited to cut them!
Bullet Journal Spread
My bujo spread for this week is both cute and disappointing. It’s Oogie-Boogie themed and I’m not a great freehand artist so my drawing of Oogie isn’t wonderful, but the colors are great. I love my tombow dual brush pens, they’re so vibrant! I used them for almost the whole spread.
P.S I know The Nightmare Before Christmas is a christmas movie, but I love Oogie-Boogie and I think his colors fit better for my halloweentime spreads. I do have plans for a Nightmare Before Christmas themed christmas spread though so if you love that movie like I do, be patient.
Today’s post feels good to me and I like making positive content sometimes. I’m really not as negative as I seem, I’m just a pessimist– it’s different.
I worked about 9 hours yesterday and I planned to write a blog post during my break but I didn’t.
I’m getting a post out today no matter what it takes though.
I always put “blog before work” on my daily to-do list when I work and I really try my best to check that box off but that didn’t happen yesterday.
Today’s post will be pretty mundane.
I’m pretty tired today.
I’ve been having a really hard time sleeping for the past like 3 nights.
I had a really great idea at like 23:00 the other night and ended up typing for 4 hours and since then my sleep schedule is basically in tatters.
I really have nothing to say.
This is one of those days when I would normally look for something that upsets me on twitter and then I’d write an 800 word post about it in a standard commentary style but I have about 6 minutes until I need to start getting ready for work.
I’ve been really cold for the past few days.
I think it’ probably because the temperature outside has gone down a little but we haven’t changed the settings on our a/c yet. I don’t wanna sweat my mom out of the house though so I’m not gonna change the temperature. I’ll just wear some of my amazing fuzzy socks from dollar tree.
It was hot at work yesterday though. Even customers who were only in the store for like 10 minutes complained.
I of course was completely covered from head to toe so I was quite warm.
It didn’t help that my hair was down.
I don’t think I’m good at temperature regulation.
I’m very rarely comfortable as far as temperature goes.
Maybe there’s something wrong with me.
I’ve gone a minute over the time I allotted myself to write so I’m gonna go now.
I kinda had no big goals for the day and I had no plans, but here I am. The sun’s almost down and I still haven’t written yet.
But at the same time, here I am, writing a blog entry as we speak.
You know what I wish would make a comeback? Cell phone charms.
Do you remember when every phone had a little notch in it to put a charm in? No you can’t find any phone case let alone phone with charm capabilities. My phone case can work around that because there’s a thin bit near where the little flap covers the ringer switch.
So I think with my upcoming paycheck I’m gonna buy this phone charm I found on etsy. I’ll update you on my phone charm journey later.
I’m still kinda flustered about my ruined guest post.
I actually quite liked the article I wrote (until it was posted) but whatever, I got a good number of new views in the past few days.
I think I’m gonna reach my view goal for my blog this month. Last month I was 9 views away 😦
Oooo you know what I’ve discovered?
If you combine pasta with aldi marinara sauce and the aldi vegan mozzarella, it tastes exactly like a stouffers cheese lasagna.
I used to eat those when I was vegetarian and they were a delight so I’m pumped that I’ve been able to replicate the flavor in a dairy free way.
If you have an aldi near you, please buy their vegan stuff. I want them to see the demand and keep producing it because good god that mozzarella and that chocolate ice cream are life changing.
I also like their vegan potstickers and black bean burgers.
I hope they make even more vegan stuff.
Yesterday I went to aldi and I wore a coat and shorts and I could hear the lady behind me lecturing her daughter to never dress like me. haha.
That may be good advice honestly.
I like the way I dress though. I think I stand out in a crowd and my clothes get the point across that I want to get across.
I’ve written over 30 words so I think this entry is sufficient so I’ll sign off here.
I’ll get to things as they happen but here’s a synopsis of October 5th.
I woke up at around 9:00. I had actually woken up for about an hour at 6:00 but I ended up falling back asleep much to my chagrin.
I woke up and went to the living room with my laptop where I edited my final draft of an article I sent to be put up on another website (I’ll link it when it’s published). I sent it to the owner of the website and then I got an email…
My first article in a magazine was published today!
I’m hoping this article will drive a little more traffic to my site and hopefully kickstart my writing “career”.
I then went over to my photo area because I’ve been asked by the nice people at BiscuitsXMonsters asked me to take some product pictures for them! My pictures should be on the website soon! (if you wanna buy something from them my discount code is: dearmikah)
Here’s one of the pictures I took:
So after my super eventful few hours, we got mail. I didn’t get what I was hoping would arrive today. 😦 I thought my 2nd milkgirl sweater would arrive but it still hasn’t. That’s fine though, I’m willing to wait.
I also applied for a gas card today. I tried to apply for a credit card a while ago and I got rejected because I don’t have a credit score yet since I’ve never had a credit card. Does that sound dumb to you too? I’m hoping I’ll get accepted for this.
I’m hoping to get in a good Japanese study session today. So to do that I’m gonna have to stop writing this post soon.
I have a video uploading on youtube right now so if you don’t keep up with my youtube channel… new video!
