If You Really Knew Me

Only 2 episodes have aired BUT I really like this new MTV show! I've seen both episodes and without failure I cried. LoL. It kinda got me thinking how everyone, even those of us no longer in H.S. Hide stuff from our friends and co-worker. So I decided I would do a post answering the question that is the focus point of that show.

- some people think I'm "childish" but I'm not. I have a laid-back personality and apparently that comes of as childish? I dnt see how....
- I've always been the "good girl" and I HATE comes with to many expectations....
- I'm often quiet, shy or kinda anti-social because I'm super insecure and scared of looking dumb.
- I'm too scared to approach a guy I like because I scared of being rejected... The few times I was brave enough, it didn't end on a good note :-( [this ties back to my insecuritiy issues]
- I've racked up a bus load of credit card debt to buy shit I thought would make me happy, and in the end it hasn't.
- I think I've been depressed for a while, but just recently came to terms with it because sooo much has been going on and its more noticable.
- I sometimes wish I had never moved to California.... Or at least not in the middle of 10th grade- it was just bad timing.

* I know this may seem like a depressing post, but that's my mood right now and I gotta vent somehow... I dnt wanna burdon others and I can't keep it inside... Hopefully some "happier" posts will come in the future.

Earring holder

I've seen this on NUMEROUS blogs and YT videos... usually people use a wooden frame and mesh wiring. BUT since I had neither, I improvised. Its not 100% sturdy but it works and kinda stands up. I used cardboard and mesh ribbon. I painted the cardboard pink since I have an abundance of wood / puffy paint

Letters #8- favorite online friend

Dear Katie,

I remember when we first became "online buddies" LoL Those B2K days..  I know I spent way too many high school days reading their message board...lmao! You were like a new friend away from home since I had just moved from TX and u lived in TX. Now its been like 7 or 8 years and we still talk. You've been through so much but I'm glad that I was able to help you through some of it even if I only had a few words of advice. And thanks for listening to me complain and vent about different stuff that was going on. Thanks!!!!

Letters #7 - Your Ex

Dear Asshole,

There's no point in me putting your name cuz I already deleted you from my life. You got mad of something EXTREMELY stupid and wanted to break up and then expected me to wait around for you like a lost damn puppy?! THEN you only wanted to be "Friends with benefits".... obviously I refused to settle with that and you turned into a childish boy instead of acting 24! But its not my loss, its all yours! You only wanted attention, not a real realtionship. Its kinda F***ed up how it all ended, but I'm glad I saw your true colors before things got complicated. So Goodbye forever!

Letters #6 - stranger

Dear Stranger [or cute New York dude that always comes  to my store],

     Even though I'd had to check your ID twice [due to age-restricted purchases], I don't remember your name. Sooo technically you're a stranger; and a VERY cute one at that. Hope you come in next week.... hahaha =)

Letters #5- your dreams

Dear Dreams/future career,

The process to make you happen is starting off kiiinnda slow! I pray that I soon get a job in my desired field. The sooner that happens I will feel more like an "almost" college graduate! Even though I'm still unsure how far I want to go in the direct child-care field, a few years as a pre-school/toddler would do me some good for sure! I hope graduate school doesn't turn into a 10 year project! A 2 year break is the max! I want to be successful and happy and able to help children and families! I hope as I'm finishing school the road to my career is approaching! I can't wait!


In the last 2 or 3 weeks I have been through more stress than I can remember. I've cried more times than I would have liked, became way too moody and possibly even depressed. I originally typed out a long post venting on my thoughts at the time but after re-reading it I decided not to post it. It wasn't until the other day that I realized that maybe if I were to become more faithful things may get better for me. I haven't been to church in.. 7 months!! I used to go every Sunday without failure! There was a time when I would go every Wednesday night as well. Going to church regularly was always something my family did. Now I almost feel lost since I haven't been in so long. I talked with one of my friends from church because I really want to start reading my bible more I hardly ever pick it up, and that really sad. Recently I found out a former Supervisor I had lost her fiance. she just gave birth to their daughter about 2 or 3 months ago. Its sooooo unfortunate when things like that happen, my heart goes out to individuals in those situations. Its worse when its someone I knew, and knowing how much they cared [or talked about] their loved one. I kinda feel bad for complaining about my problems when I look at what others are going through.
Some future posts may be religion based, different things I 've read or things i hear while at church (once I start going again). I know everyone has different religious beliefs so I don't mean to offend anyone with anything I may write.

What do you girls do when you're feeling extremely stressed? Anyone had a similar experience?!

Letters day 4- Siblings

To my sisters-
       I love you both!! Due to our huge age difference we never bonded much... so that kinda sucks. But i do appreciate the talks we've had or just hangin out. And thanks for all the nieces and nephews i love them all! The oldest are like the little sisters i never had, so thanks for that! Thanks for watching my graduation online... all those txt messages right after i walked the stage meant soo much! As we all get older, and when i eventually move closer, I hope that we get the chance to bond more.

To my only brother,
      I couldn't have asked for another brother. All the arguments and fights, it was all out of love. thanks for always lookin out for me; even though sometimes you were toooo protective! I'm worried how you're gonna be with your daughter..... you're gonna have the boys running away! Thanks for all the talks, and lectures. HAHA

Day 3 — Your parents

To Mom & Dad,

I love you both soo much.. I still sometimes wish y'all never separated....I used to wonder what things would have been like if we had all stayed in Texas.... But I can't really dwell on the past anymore. Plus everything happens for a reason, even though the reason is unknown. All I can do know is pray you both get healthier. I know you wont be here forever and that what scars me more than anything, but as long as I don;t think about it I'll be okay. Sometimes I wish you hadn't sheltered me so much when I was young... I think I'm having some kind of backlash from it now. But this letter isn't about what i wish you had or hadn't done..  either way I love you both for all you've done. Thanks!

Letters: Day 1 — Your Best Friend

Dear BFF #1,

We became friends so randomly.. all because of our love for Justin Timberlake.. now 10 years, 2 states and 1500 miles later we're still buddies! It kinda sucks that we missed major moments in each other lives, but I'm glad we've kept in touch over the years! Thanks for all the advice and talks! Love ya!!!

Dear BFF #2,
I never thought we'd become besties... we went from co-workers to friends to besties or "biffs"! Even though we always disagree [like I love Tay, u love Rob..]  Thank you for all the talks and advice, and the occasional fashion advice too. i swear i would've gone out-of-my-mind crazy without some of the talks we've had... soooo thanks for all the support to, even when you didn't agree with me, in some situations you were right =/  And even though me may both move to different parts of the country [or may not, idk] we'll always be Biffs. Love ya!
