Life changing development.

21 06 2009

Laying here at 2 AM thinking about everything I want to say & everything that I’ve been doing lately… I never thought I’d ever find the time to do so.  I don’t even know where to begin with this blog. Have you ever had someone introduce you to something new & they pretty much guaranteed that it was going to be life changing for reals? I have, and it’s happening. I don’t even know that it’s happening, but man… Let’s just say that I haven’t opened up to someone like this in the LONGEST time. And man.. I cried.

About a month ago, I was approached by someone that I never thought I’d ever hear from again. She hit me up on AIM asking how I was doing & what not. I was thinking to myself: “What the hell does she want? But I’m glad she took the initiative to do so, otherwise I wouldn’t have.” kind of thing… Well, she picked me up to get some Starbucks & we talked about EVERYTHING that we both needed to get off our chest. It was one of those long awaited type things. And also, one of those misunderstanding type things. Anyway…

I asked her, “You’re so different now. What are you doing? Your view on life is totally different than it used to be. Tell me your secret.” I’m SO GLAD I had asked, because then I never would’ve gotten an answer. Basically, she introduced me to the company she works for. And I also asked her, “Is your company looking for new people.” SO GLAD I DID THAT, as well.  I don’t think I could thank her enough for actually introducing me to the company. It’s surely has changed my life in the past 3 weeks.

I’ve learned so many things in life in these past 3 weeks, that I’ve never really thought about in the past almost 26 years of my life. I’ve never met so many people that don’t see you for what you’ve done in the past, but what you can do & accomplish in the future. They really are my family outside of my family. They see things in me that I’ve never been able to see in myself. Their belief & faith in me is what is pushing me to work harder than I’ve ever worked in my life. I’ve never had that kind of support, ever & I appreciate EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM for that. For the past week, I’ve been thanking GOD for every single one of them & I can’t let myself down. If I do, I let them down.


It’s FINALLY here!!!

My 120!! It’s here!! I’m sooo excited!! I slept over Shana’s place on Sunday night b/c we were going to bleach my hair the next morning. While we were watching UNSOLVED MYSTERIES on TV, the doorbell rang.. 2x. We were like, “Who the hell is that?” When Shana went to get the door, it was the mail man. I wasn’t there when she signed for the package. As soon as she shut the door, she shouted:
“Hey, Paula! Guess what came in the mail!!”
I literally jumped up & scream, “OUR 120’s?”

Sure enough, in a green bulky envelope that look like it’s contains drugs, were both of our 120s, & 2 free gift sets.

We were uber excited that we both opened our palettes & did a little swatching. They’re absolutely AMAZING! I mean, I knew they were going to be really pigmented because I’ve watched/read a few reviews on them online. But they’re even better in person!! I wanted to “play” with the colors last night while Shana was raiding on WoW, but I honestly didn’t know where to start.

As soon as I got home last night, I took my 120 palette out & I got on youtube. I said to myself, “Hey! I might as well make another entry for Angee’s contest!!” So I did. You can view a preview picture here.

I’m uploading the video right now as I’m typing this. If you subscribe to my youtube channel, then you’ll be able to check it out. Also, if you follow me on Twitter, I’ll tweet a link to the video :]

I was kind of disappointed in some of the colors of the 120. 95% of them were very pigmented, the other 5% of them weren’t. I had to do a few swipes to get color to show on my arm for the swatches. So here they are!!

All swatches were applied on NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in MILK as a base.

Oh ew!!

I just saw the pix I took yesterday for my review. Um, EW! I look all whack! HA! I need to lose weight! JEEZ! Well, apparently ppl have been asking if I’ve lost weight. I dont’ think I have. I mean, of course I’m not going to see a difference in my point of view, but if you knew me from let’s say Christmas, do I look that different?

I can’t wait for this Sunday!! Tracy High Band/Colorguard from 98-02 is having a reunion at Amanda’s house. I haven’t SEEN any of them, other than Barb, since graduation. Thank goodness for Facebook! If it wasn’t for facebook, we wouldn’t have planned this reunion!! I’ll post pix of the event.

Nap time would be better if…

12 03 2009

I had some interesting pillows to sleep on. Well, not really, but it would be awesome to say that I do own a cool pillow!! I was browsing on twitter sometime last week & saw this crazy pillow!! It’s called the “boyfriend pillow”.

It’s crazy, I know!! People come up with the weirdest things! Since that day, I’ve been looking online for “weird/crazy pillows”. I guess it’s a new obsession of mine. Obviously, someone already did a blog or whatever on these pillows I’m about to share with you, but hey! I don’t give a shit :] Honestly, I kind of want one. *enter your comment here* posted this in January, and let me tell you. I seriously LOL`d! I would love to get all 3 sets of these. I mean look how hilarious they are! ESP the headphones & fingers-in-ear set. Can someone get me all 3 sets!?! PLEASE?! Thanks :]

Look closely at this one. It totally cracks me up! I don’t know if you guys get these pillow marks on your face when you sleep at night, but I definitely get them when I nap. Only when I nap, though! I would hate to have a message like this on my face for a few hours, though! Especially if I’m going out later.

For the MAC lover in you. Umm, this is kind of obsessive to me, as are some of the other ones I’ll show you. Would you really get this? I mean, I’m an XP user. You don’t see me getting a pillow or even creating a pillow with a “Start Button” design. Although, that would be a great idea!! If you make one, I better get credit for it, and 10% of all profit! :]

Okay I’m sorry, but this is a lil disturbing! I mean who would want a head of a horse on their bed? Especially one that’s been cut off? I swear, I thought my “XP Start Button” pillow was insane!!

HAH! I fuckin love this one! It’s called the “Pill-o Pillow”. The description says, “Creative pillow design from CarteBlanche, a luxury products company pioneering “cocaine-chic” couture.” Umm, honestly… A few people I know would LOVE this pillow if they were circular and had lil imprints, like XTC pills. But yeah, I wonder if this is actually comfy.

Like the MAC icon pillows, this is kind of out there. I personally wouldn’t get it, but I know a few “geeks” that would. I ❤ geeks, though. They’re sexy. Especially if they’re the geeks from LEXATIONSHIPS. Oh, did I just type that? Umm next crazy pillow…

Um, I’m not even going to comment on this one. You’re prolly thinking the same thing I’m thinking.

What does this look like to you? A red & white squiggly lined pillow, yeah? WRONG! It’s supposed to be BACON. Let me tell you something. I don’t like bacon. I hate the smell of when it’s being cooked, the taste & greasiness of it. This makes me hate bacon even more. Wait! No, this makes me hate bacon even more. Click here. Thanks bacon lovers, thanks.

This is cute. I’d totally get one! I love the color of the model’s hair, too! But really tho, it’s creative.

My new obsession for pillows got me searching real hard. And OMG, look at this one!!

Seriously, I thought I was obsessed over these, but this is WAY over the top!! Who would get a pillow that you can wear all day? That’s just fuckin ridiculous. Might I add: TACKY! Shame on you designers for making this one! Would you seriously walk around with a pillow attached to your head all day? I mean shit, if you’re that lazy, call in sick or something!

I want to read your reaction to these pillows, especially the pillowig [yes, that’s the actual name for it]. I never ask people to comment anything of mine, but I WANT you to comment this one please. Thank you :]

So a few days ago, I said that Shana & I were going to take pictures of our lovely self-make overs. Well that never happened. We ended up just hanging out for an hour longer and then I went home to get some rest.

You sure its a bumper sticker?!You sure it’s a bumper sticker?! So yeah, I got this bumper sticker from Only it’s about 10x bigger than it appears on your screen. Anyway, I don’t remember ordering a bumper sticker from any such site, let alone it being one that doesn’t fit on a bumper. Well, at least I have a new sticker for my guitar. For some reason, Nevaeh’s lil voice came to my head asking, “Why is The Rock Obama on your guitar?”

So, people will do anything for money, right? Yeah I’m one of those people. I got asked to write a paper for someone and that paper was due at 6pm tonight. Apparently, that someone was given the wrong classes by her stupid ass fuckin school. WTF?! Like are you serious? I spent 1 1/2 days trying to research & write a paper for something that’s not going to get graded anyway? WOW!

I also edit peoples’ papers for their grammatical and spelling errors. I may not be the best writer there is, but they trust me with my editing. I don’t care if you pay me or not, just make sure you at least thank me. Anyway, this one random night I was on stickam [which night aren’t I on stickam, though?], some guy asked me if I did well in English. I told him that I was thinking of going back to school to major in English & education after getting licensed in cosmetology. So, he asked me to edit a paper for him. I said whatever. After reading what he needed to write about and reading his paper, which btw had way too many errors, he asked me to see if he needed to change something about it. So I gave him suggestions. This asshole asked me to pretty much write the fucking paper myself!! I told him that it’s his paper, and if I was going to write it for him, that he’d better pay me or SOMETHING! He said sure, but whatever!! I got scammed! OH!! He didn’t even say, “Thank you for helping me,” or anything like that!! I mean WTF?! And might I add, he wanted me to call HUFF for him? Because I lived closer to SF than he did? Seriously, are you fuckin kidding me?!

Lesson learned from today: Remember to at least say, “Thank you,” once a day to someone. Even if it’s for something small.
