Personal: Sometimes life gets in the way
There were no updates last week because frankly, I had way too much going on. But I know that this site is a big part of who I am and I felt empty the entire week from not posting, writing, etc. I worked last Sunday by going on a work trip and worked all week
and I was just give out by the weekend. Then I had to go two hours away yesterday for something and it just made my day blah. I came home and watched “Suicide Squad” and “Justice League.”
You know I love that Ben Affleck.
So this is what’s going on:
The cruise is paid for! PRAISE HOWIE! Now the only thing left to buy is a few theme accessories and that’s pretty much it! I keep changing my mind on a few theme ideas, so I need to finally settle on it. But I can’t wait until May gets here!
Dream Come True! One of my biggest dreams is coming true two weeks from today – I’m going to Memphis, Tenn. and to Graceland with Lacy! We are staying at The Guesthouse, which is Graceland’s hotel and it’s going to be an emotional experience. I probably won’t wear eye makeup because I’ll be crying the entire time.
Sugar Sugar: Still getting my blood sugar under control. It’s tiresome some days and this weekend I was bad with what I ate. It’s high tonight and I feel weird. I’m getting it under control. Slowly.
Moviepass! <3 So I was skeptical at first, but one of my coworkers signed up and Hannah signed up and I finally signed up for Moviepass. Do you know what it is? It’s a program where you pay $9.95 a month to join and you can go see any movie (except 3D things) as many times as you want, as long as it’s one movie a day. I did it for the first time today and I loved it. Seriously, going to the movie one time is basically paying for your monthly subscription. I had planned on going to the movies yesterday, but something was wrong with the one e-ticket place here in my town (I haven’t received my card in the mail yet) and so I didn’t get to. Today, I saw “Game Night,” which I wrote a review for. So expect to see more movie reviews soon!
My Mom: My Mom found out Friday that she will be getting her prosthetic leg like really soon (three weeks or so) and her goal is to be able to walk in May when Hunter, the little boy she started babysitting when he was six weeks old, graduates from high school. I told her it won’t be easy, but she’s determined. I’ll just be glad when I don’t have to do all this running around for her, like grocery shopping or medicine, etc. She’ll be able to go herself. That’s what makes me really tired a lot is all of that.
But that’s pretty much been it the past week.
Goals for the upcoming weeks:
- Stop with the sweets. STOP IT KARAH. Get sugar more under control.
- Try to walk more and get a little workout in.
- Finalize my theme outfits.
- Try not to have an emotional breakdown at Graceland. It’s bound to happen.
- Work on my future (cryptic message).
- Look more into online grad school because I really want to do that.
- And help prepare everybody for the most bad ass cruise of all time!
Have a good week, guys. I’ll leave you with a sonnet I wrote in my poetry writing class in college that I just found.
Thought he was the love of my life
That’s why it hurt me so hard
In twilight gloom, it ended in strife
So-called love twisted with my mangled guard
Guilt, pain, all I felt was sad
Bruises, heartache, all that showed was tears
Dreams of that night that turned out so bad
And loosing him was my biggest fears
Years go by, it wasn’t love at all
No calls, no visits, no e-mails so I pray
Obsessions and confessions that made me fall
Making me wonder where my heart went astray
Somehow if only the world could see
All I want now is my heart to be free
