Google.

My freakin life savor. I love google. I love every single thing about it. Don’t know how to do something. Google. Looking for  those song lyrics you just heard but don’t know the name of the song. Google. Need to know an address. Google. Directions. Google. Your boss just asked you to do a pivot table on excel. You guessed it! GOOGLE! I feel sorry for the previous generations that actually had to have all this knowledge and go to extremes to get this information. We are a spoiled world these days. And as much as faulting sucks at times, we have google you guys and that makes like that much easier!

If you don’t like the weather…wait a minute.

Up here in the Eastern Sierras, the weather changes daily. Actually hourly. It’s constantly different. And as an working adult who live 40 minutes from where I work getting dressed is really hard every morning. Well let’s face it getting dressed everyday is hard period. I would much rather just stay in bed and in my comfy pajamas! So this weather thing is an added nuisance . I’ll wake up and it’ll be 36 degrees. 36 DEGREES! Um ew! But then by noon it’s in the 70s/80s. So naturally in the morning I’m looking at my winter clothes…gloves, scarves, heavy jackets. But I have to tell my really tired mind, “no Amanda…it’s going to get warm…man up and dress for that.” So the only logical solution I have come up with is……layers. Lots and lots of layers. Layer up in the morning and as it gets hot layer down. So whenever any of you guys come to visit me this time of year pack with layers!!

Before Marriage VS. After Marriage

So there all these funny memes and what it expressing all the differences of before and after marriage. And if that’s true I’m already married. I haven’t come across too many that isn’t already the case. So we can be on the same insurance…save some money that way. But to be honest there isn’t much I don’t know about him and vice a verse. I mean we have ONE bathroom. One! Which means when I’m rushing to get ready and leave the house and he happens to have to use the restroom at the same exact freaking time…we’re in there together. WE. ARE. CLOSE. Maybe even too close. But shoot…he still put a ring on it…and we face that situation many a time prior to being engaged. I mean he has seen my at my worst…no make up, frizzy nappy hair, crabby as heck, and stuffing my face full of food AND he still wants to marry me! I guess it’s mutual…that’s love no matter what. But I am still searching for some other difference I may experience. Commitment of course I know that…like full blown legal commitment.

But let me tell you we are everything in the after column!

Sampling.

You know you are old when you hear a new song that some teeny bobber just came out with and you realize they are sampling music from when you where a child!! And the. You get mad cause you feel like they are taking something from you. Like um…no that’s not how this tune is supposed to go. And then you start singing the words you know from 15 plus years ago. Well this happened to me the other day. Had my Spotify on shuffle and this new song comes on and I immediately was um no!!! Listened to the whole song to then hear a little rap in there that even goes as far as uses lines from the original! I wasn’t to happy bout that! Here are the two songs: Zendaya “Something New”. Oh the irony because it is not something fully new! Thank you very much. And it is sampling TLC “Creep”. I think it is our job to share with these youngsters where the greatness came from!

 

And the original…please tell me you hear it too!

Tale as Old as Time.

I. Love. Beauty and the Beast. Always have always will. Every girl has there go to Disney movie and this was mine. I can not tell you the countless times that I was Belle for Halloween. Like 5… Cause I’m obsessive like that. This was my first love story that I fell in love with. I probably watched this on the daily…ask my mom she will vouche for me! There were certain scenes I could not watch…well only one…the west wing. I would yell for my mommy…”she is going in the west wing!” My mother would have to come and fast forward…vhs style…(yes I’m old…hence Quarter Life Crisis here) and then I would be a ok.

The ironic thing out of all of this was that I oddly had a crush on Gaston….always was a sucker for muscles đŸ’ȘđŸœ. Arnold Schwarzenegger was my first real human crush. But you know the bad boy strong man type.

But out of all my Beauty and the Beast memories THIS is my favorite…My Papa and I on, yes a Halloweenwhere I was Belle

Beauty School Drop-Out

Soooo at one point in my life I went to beauty school. I didn’t finish all my hours BUT I did learn enough to basically do all the maintenance on my own hair. For instance I color my own hair and well as cut it. My bathroom is my own personal beauty shop. It’s come in quite handy and has saved quite a bit of money. However my hair ADD kicks in quite often and I am constantly wanting to change my hair. I get bored and I want something different. Which always leaves my hair damaged and needing a hair cut…well then I do that too. My issue at this point is that I have a wedding coming up…can’t keep changing my mind. I currently have the reddish/burgundy color going on which I love when it’s freshly done. However I am going through the thought that I want to go back blonde for the big day. I have all the product sitting in my bathroom to do this as well as the scissors ready to trim the dead ends. I just need to make a decision and stick with it for the next 8 months. Hell maybe after the wedding I’ll just dye it blue!

Sick Day.

Being an adult and being sick SUCKS. You’re not a little kid where your mom brings you chicken noodle soup. Instead I have my fiancĂ© who is taking care of me, bringing meds and trying to make me feel better. Poor guy…I’m not looking the greatest and I’m sure the runny nose and gross cough is REAL attractive….not!  It really sucks on a weekend when you have a long list of things to do. Like a very long list. I’m laying in bed thinking about all I should be doing. Yet all that is happening is more meds and more sleep. I keep telling myself it’s just sinuses from allergies to encourage my body to get over it by tomorrow morning so I can do my long to do list. Hopefully the power of positive thinking will work. Fingers crossed.  I’m also laying here realizing how I’ve taken for granted a non blocked nose and lack of head pressure. Like I will very much be thankful when mine is restored.
