2010: Let's Toast Again

I am so excited for 2010!!! I have blogged less this year than ever since I turned 16, and my only resolution for 2010 is to blog every day (even though no one comments anymore! See: lame!) to my invisible audience. I am also excited for 2010 because it will begin on the right foot with the right man with all the right intentions (unlike the previous couple years...). Lot's of exciting things are happening this year and i cannot wait to share them all with you! I usually do a recap of my year but the wonderful things of 2009 can be summed up really simply:

-I love Eric and am so thankful for him every day. I didn't expect to be in this kind of relationship for years and years and he kind of blindsighted me into this wonderful mess of happiness that I never understood until now.
-My family has put themselves through the grinder this year, but we all managed to stay out of jail, and we all love each other at the end of the day.
-Jamie got into Army with flying colors (mixed feelings about this but DEFINITELY proud. So proud.). When I say flying colors, I mean the girl she was sitting next to taking the test got a 30, which is still passing. Jamie got a 92. Meaning she can do whatever she wants, and she wants to be a medic. I will miss her so much in the Spring, but I am so stinkin' PROUD of her! (Have I mentioned that I am proud of Jamie?)
-I have learned so much this year. More than school ever taught me. I learned forgiveness and I learned to appreciate the smaller things. I learned that karma will catch up to you, be it good or bad, and that it is always best to exude positivity into the universe.

2009 was far better than 2008, and 2010 is shaping up (already!) to be the most wonderful yet. I am so excited to ring in the new year tonight with my friends and family by my side!

Happy New Year!

Christmas came and went and no one died....

Well, Christmas happened this year, even though I begged and pleaded for it to stay away! It's not that I hate Christmas, because in all truth, I really don't, but this year I was not ready for it, and then no one got a present from me. Not even the boyfriend. It's because I am poor, which people understood, but it still made me feel kind of bad.

Not to mention, Doug is mad at the 'rents for being obnoxious all year, so he almost didn't show. He came for about 20 minutes (four hours late), and then left. I didn't see my dad until 5 or 6, and I could tell the day was rough for him. My mom was so upset over her firstborn not going to Christmas that she shut herself up in her room for about half an hour to have a good cry. How she managed to cook (she doesn't cook) and have a presentable Christmas for her family (including some aunts, uncles, cousins..) is beyond me, because this year was rough for her as well.

Luckily there was enough alcohol for most of us to get through the day without going crazy. Although, later towards the end when my mom was upset over something a neighbor had said, me in all of my (awesomeness) drunkeness marched down the street to have a little chat with him for making my mom cry. I can't tell you exactly what happened because it is a blur of tears and hugs, but in the end- no one died and everyone got home safely.

On Blogging and Autotuning...

It's not so so much that I have been super busy lately, I just haven't felt the urge to blog. Sure, lots of different things are happening in my life right now, but nothing that feels important or interesting enough to actually keep track of.
At the same time though, I never used to care if I had something to write about. I used to be able to just pull anything out of my brain and write about it. Those times need to return, people! They SHALL return!!!!


For now, enjoy this video, inspired by another video, linked here because of Chebs/Jeeg's video...

Oh Debilitating Debt....

Just a question.... Will I ever be out of debt?
