My ex kind of randomly showed up at my house today to "catch up" and see how I'm doing.

I want to be on good terms...but good terms via the occasional text and message relayed through his mom.

Now I have to tell Shane about it.

Oh joy.

I went and bought a new alarm clock today because mine had been acting kind of wonky last couple weeks. After plugging the new one in, I discovered that there was never anything wrong with my clock in the first place; it's the stupid outlet. So now I have a spare alarm clock. First world problems.

Also the weathermen totally lied and today's weather SUCKED but I had myself all amped expecting a nice day, so we went out anyway. Juno thoroughly hates me for it because we ended up getting stuck walking through wind gusts and blowing snow. I hate myself for it because my legs and face were frozen and my eardrums felt like they were going to explode from the wind.

If one more person from work or life tries to sell me scentsy/passion party/slumber parties/thirty-one/avon products.
Especially under the ruse of being invited over for something (this has happened TWICE)
I am going to lose my mind.
STOP IT. STOP IT RIGHT NOW.

I KNOW you are selling these things, thanks to the 70000 facebook updates per day (but you know what fine, it's your FB feed, that's your choice) accosting me in FB messages or texting me or inviting me over and AMBUSHING is annoying as hell.

If I wanted these products, I know you sell them, I know 50 people who sell them, I WILL COME TO YOU. LEAVE ME BE I AM STARTING TO RESENT YOU.

Says the girl who now has 500 scentsy bars, cheap makeup she will NEVER use and will likely give her a rash, an ugly lunchbox with her name on it
and a vibrator which I have no complaints about BUT STILL! haha

I am all about supporting small businesses and my friends. I shop on etsy stores for those who make things, I go to their new restaurants, I hire them as photographers, I do what I can..
but these things are so just UGHHHHH the sales strategies are so annoying and it's just so temporary. I just resent having to get stuff that they didn't make and that they aren't even getting all the money for.

LEARN TO MAKE CANDLES! LEARN TO KNIT! MAKE SOAP! DO SOMETHING THAT I CAN BUY FROM YOU BECAUSE I WANT TO AND THAT IS SPECIALLY YOU!

Ugh Fran, I totally agree. It's so annoying. I despise those home party things. It's all "oh just come... You don't have to buy anything". "Well you bought something.... You know... If you book to host a party we bith get free stuff" "oh you booked a party... Hey you should sign up to be a consultant under me and we both get commission". ARGH... It never ends and it's just pressure in a
Pyramid scheme.

To put it out there, I admit that I sell both Thirty-One and Scentsy, but I try pretty durn hard to not be pushy or annoying. I don't do home parties (well, I have someone doing one Saturday, but it was her idea), and I sure as hell would never lie to someone or trick someone into coming over and then ambush them. Honestly, those parties make me cringe, because I know I don't like being put on the spot., so I don't want to ever do that to someone else. I pretty much just do retail orders, whether they come to me or order online. I also don't recruit people to sign up under me. All this probaby explains why I don't bring in the big bucks, but I not doing it for that. For me, I truly enjoy the products, I do enjoy the people (mainly some other consultants that have becoe friends) I've met, and the income has truly been a blessing, especially now that we're saving for this upcoming service dog pup and the training it wil require.

I am not an artsy or crafty person, so there's nothing that I could do along the lines of etsy stuff.

I'm sorry if that's offensive to you. I'm not like many of the other consultants that all fall not the group you've described, but I often get lumped with them just the same.

Got bit at work tonight. It was just a level 2. No punctures but this mother effer is going to bruise. The dog had excellent bite inhibition, I think? He took multiple chomps on me but I don't even have a flap of skin missing. Just a crap ton of pressure with each chomp.

Ugh. I already took ibuprofen and iced it. It hurts like a beyotch right now. And of course it's my right forearm.

Second bite working in the field. First was a cat. I went to urgent care for that one. I just want to avoid the bruising/swelling/general annoyance with having my dominant hand painful when I do stuff.

Whine. Or wine.

Lightroom is just too confusing for me. I may have to actually use a tutorial this time around! Usually I just play around with editing programs and get results I approve of, but this is just not coming to me!

So all of my friends already have a date to prom. I don't even have a guy friend, so actually having a date to prom probably wouldn't happen. Which just makes me depressed.*Forever alone*

Prom?! I totally thought you were in your 20s for some reason. Wow! (Sorry about the no date thing, though )

Yeah, THIS! And when the heck
Is prom? It's
The
Beginning of march!

I know it means nothing now because the "right now" is everything but 5 years
From now... Prom will mean very little. 10 years from now
Prom will mean nothing. 15 years from now... Wait... Prom? What is that?

Never had a
Prom, went to
Prom... I don't think we had a prom but not sure. But what happened when
I was in highschool means NOTHING now lol. Right now it means everything to you in the moment. A few years from now if you had a date to
Prom... You probably won't even be friends with him on facebook!
