A new beginning

On Monday I woke up and decided that I was not going to be a smoker anymore.

It is Tuesday and I have not smoked a cigarette yet.

I am really proud and happy that I am finally doing this. I have wanted this for so long but have always made excuses.

Today I signed up for a marathon with my friend Chris and his best friend Kara and her boyfriend. It's on January 21st and only a 5k. Only. Hah. I am not a runner. I am a walker but have been training myself lately and have started jogging. I went tonight for a 5k walk/jog. My stamina is getting better when I jog and will only get better now that I am not smoking.

The most difficult thing for me right now is living with two smokers. Jeremy is having his birthday party on Friday and I know it will be hard for me to escape being surrounded by alcohol and cigarettes. I just need to limit my alcohol and go in my room and chew some gum when I get the craving.

Anyway here are some photos.

Should I stay or should I go now...

I ran into the guy I was dating the last few months (the one who accused me of making out w/ my room mate...ugh lol) and he apologized to me and invited me over for coffee. We talked and things were good. We saw each other Thursday night and he made me dinner and it was a good night. He was very affectionate with me. But, it's Saturday and I have yet to hear from him. Makes me feel insecure. Do I contact him or wait for him to contact me? I have a feeling this is not the right one.

I work for the weekends

Skyping with Diana! <3 She will be staying with us next weekend when she comes to visit for her birthday! I am so excited!!!

Sunset Blvd on Saturday.

New jacket from some shop on Melrose. No luck with vintage shopping this wkd but did score this faux leather jacket, on sale!

Oh Sunday night. Back to work tomorrow. I can't wait for it to get cold and rainy so I can take a sick day and stay in baking and watching movies, snuggled in bed. Ahh I can be so lazy. :)
I love weekends xoxo

No hope

Sitting in bed feeling numb and withdrawn from life. I'm emotionless, yet so emotional. On the outside I am trying to be tough, and y'know, cool, calm, and collected. But on the inside I am sad and angry. Is he just Oblivious? Or is he just another asshole? I mean, if my friend were dating a guy who she has continuously invited over to her apt and he has consistently canceled, yet will then say "but you can come over tonight" (even tho she was going to have him over after work and cook him dinner)....I think I'd be a bit skeptical that she was just a booty call. Someone who shows no desire to meet your friends or hang out at your new apartment, but just wants her to come over at night or meet her at the bar (where she ends up driving him home bc he's on probation for a DUI). Or if he has plans with her, then cancels to go to the bar with his doushebag brother to drink a few pitchers of beer... Then reschedules for the next day and then, oh my god...get this, will cancel, again! ...yet invites her over later that night...

I'd tell my friend to never talk to him again.

Which is exactly what my friends told me and exactly what I am going to do.

Weekend has been very nice. House party on Friday night. Beer pong and stuff...y'know all that classy stuff. :)
Saturday was a Surprise Birthday/Engagement party for a friend. Greg and I drove out to Pasadena to attend for a few hours. Then drove back into town for another birthday party! I discovered the most amazing thing ever...cake. Vodka..Well, cake flavored vodka. Taste like vanilla frosting. Amazing.

Feeling rather down today. Nothing seems to work out, especially this week. Feeling so confused about so many things in my life lately. Work, guys (singular, actually), the future, and feeling extremely insecure.. I need to get out of this rut.
The past year has actually been pretty good, it's just the past month has been awkward. Maybe moving out of my parents has a bit to do with it. I don't know...
There were a few good parts to the week however (yes let's be positive here!) I got to see Katie and spend some time with her.

Katie & Me :)

Saw my dogs Monday and Wednesday. Thank God I only live 10 minutes away from my family. My family is the most important thing to me. My mom, dad, bro and my little furry animals. The other great part to my week was when I made pumpkin pie pastry's (or pumpkin pie pop tarts).

Unfortunately, I didn't take a decent photo of 'em, since I devoured one before I thought of photographing it. But, let me just say, they were amazzzzing!! I am so tempted to go into the fridge and heat one up as I type!

I hope tomorrow is a better day. I need to stay positive, find thr motivation to be strong and keep myself inspired and happy.

Sweet Dreams,

Hello, pumpkin!

Ok, I don't know why I stopped blogging, but I am back. I knew there was something missing from my life! :)
Anyway, it's the season for pumpkin!!! And because I kick ass, I'm making pumpkin pop tarts tonight! My room mates are going to hate me with all the baking I've done in the past month.
