All photo posts are public. Personal posts are open for a week, then flocked (unless originally flocked).

Aside from my photography this journal contains a lot of rambling about real life, gays, Korean boybands, and Harry Potter, so if you have a problem with that then you may not want to friend me. :)

(For more on this, see my introduction posts.)

To make the top of my journal less cluttered with sticky entries, here are the links.

  • Introduction Posts
    • About / Friending - here.
  • Media uploads - here. (Mostly Super Junior.)

    Photo and friends-only posts start directly after this post.

    Comment here to be added.
       ┗ I will not friend empty journals.
       ┗ Or journals with only one or two posts.

    091015 - If I don't add you back, don't take it personally. I don't like to share my personal life with everyone, especially complete strangers who I've never spoken to.

    This is my RL journal, if you want Super Junior downloads go to supajunia or my archive neukkim. You will not find any of that sort of media here.

It's amazing how much changes in the course of a few years. It always makes me sad when I think of all the things I feel I've left behind in the course of my life. Growing up and moving on from some of the best times in my life; the best people in my life. Unfortunately I know it happens all too often. We all get our own lives, we grow up, we get married, have kids, have our own lives. The things that were once on the forefront of your life are now on the back burner.

I still miss the many people I have come to know over the course of the last 10 years. Livejournal became a place of the past. I have no time to post updates and don't have the angst I once did to have the vents and rants I once made.

I often think about everyone and the conversations we had, whether serious or the complete opposite.

I love you guys and I'm sorry that life has taken us away from each other. <3

It's been nearly two years since I've last posted.

Life has changed so much, mostly for the good.

I got a puppy.

(Who's not so much a puppy anymore.)Collapse )

I bought a house.
It's pretty cute.Collapse )

I got married. :)
To a wonderful man.Collapse )

I know hardly anyone is active on here anymore but there are times I really miss the simple days. Being a responsible adult takes its toll at times.

So super long time no post. Thanks to yoursoulkitchen, you're getting an entry. :P

I don't even know where to begin honestly. It's been so long since I've actually tried to sit and write an journal entry.

Not much has really changed in my life since my last update (despite how brief it was). I'm still working at the forklift company doing accounts payable and basic secretarial duties. When there's not much going on at work, I basically spend my day on the internet. Not the most professional, but I would be bored out of my mind if I didn't have access to the internet. I've also been doing a lot of the advertising and graphic work for the company and the new weight loss center my boss opened up. It's been fun and stressful at the same time because I am not a good graphics person. And of course, despite making 3x more than what I was making at the tanning salon, I still don't have a penny to my name. Lol. I'm trying so hard to pay off my debt and it just takes a toll on my wallet. Thankfully I still live with my parents and they don't make me pay any rent/utilities. Though my mom did pass my car not and insurance over to me so that's a big part of me not having any extra money. OTL.

The boyfriend and I are doing really good. We still have our hangups, but I'm pretty sure all couples do. It's still a learning experience for me, but things are starting to get serious. We're talking about buying a house in the next year (because buying is cheaper than renting around here) and talk of engagement has come up as well. I know we've only been dating for about a year now, but to me this is better than waiting 3 months. Like I said though, some of these things won't be for another year or so. So we're not rushing anything. And if we do get engaged sooner, there won't be a wedding for at least another couple of years.

I'm also in the process of getting a husky puppy! I have a deposit down with a breeder in Arkansas and I'm just waiting for them to have puppies. I'm going to find out if this litter that's due in November will be my time or if I have to wait another several months. I will be sad, but it might be for the best. My stepdad isn't particularly happy about me getting a dog, but I honestly need a dog in my life. I've always wanted a husky and I have been doing research for several months on this breed and believe that I can handle it. It's going to be difficult because huskies are not like other dogs, but I'm ready for the challenge - mentally and physically.

Not sure what else....

The boyfriend and I are going to Oktoberfest next weekend with some friends of his. It should be fun. We went to his friend's wedding last night in Gonzales at a really cute venue and I got to meet a few of his friends from college. We're probably going to end up meeting with all of them next weekend. I'll probably be the only sober one there, since I don't drink beer (or really drink at all). Lol.

Halloween is coming up and I'm excited about it! Unfortunately I still haven't decorated the house because no one will help me get the decorations out of the attic. I always hate waiting until a week before to decorate, but it looks like no one else in our neighborhood has decorated either. It's such a shame. This is one of my favorite holidays and it just seems that no one cares anymore. :( Our city is putting on a Halloween festival called the Rougarou Festival. There's going to be a zombie run, costume contest, and movies playing. I'm really hoping it gets a good turnout and they do this every year. I'm excited about it at least!

And I think that's about it.

Here's a pic of me and Sunny from this morning. (I look hungover. Lol.)

It took me about 5 minutes to remember how to code a link like that. *facepalm*

It's been quite some time since I made a post, but hopefully some pictures of my adorable animals will help you to forgive me. :D

Cat and parrot things under here.Collapse )

Life has been crazy. Work takes up my life and then what little social life I have generally keeps me away from the internet.

The boyfriend and I are doing really good. Next month makes an entire year we've been together and it's just insane to think it's already been a year. So overall, things are good. :)

I got a new job!!

I haven't started yet, but I did go in this past Wednesday to train / observe. It's at a forklift company and I'll be doing reception, invoicing, and helping work on the website.

I'll be getting paid $5 more an hour than I am now. So I'll be making close to $27K a year which is a great feeling when I haven't ever made more than $8K. :/ I'll have benefits, 401K, insurance, etc. It'll be so nice. It's a lot to learn and will probably take a while for me to get the hang of everything but I'm really excited about it.

I start on March 1 as far as things are going now. My current workplace hasn't hired anyone to fill my spot so I'm not sure what's going on with that. I gave my manager my 2 weeks like 2 weeks ago. Lol. But I haven't told the owner yet. I'll most likely drop that bomb Monday or after Mardi Gras (which will be a week before I leave). If they still haven't found anyone to replace me then oh well. It's not my problem.

Anyway I am excited and I will have money! And it will be awesome. :DDD

If anyone else is on Dreamwidth and I don't have you on there, feel free to add me — [personal profile] simplify. Though obviously, I neglect that journal as much as I do this one, but I'm going to try to do better and cross-post entries.

If I tried selling prints again, would anyone be interested or know people who would be?

Anything specific you'd like to see? Small, big, rectangular, square, etc?

Maybe made on things or just a good quality print?

I'd love to be able to sell my photography but I just don't think I'd have much of a consumer base for the type of stuff I shoot. :/

So I've finally taken some steps in helping my job / financial situation. I finally finished my resume and applied at the credit place next door. When I finally have time to bring my resume to places, I'll be doing that hopefully come Wednesday of next week.

I need money. It is seriously time for me to put my big girl pants on and just own up and get a better job. If I can make $12/hr I think that'll be good for now. I know that's really still not enough to survive on in this day and age, but at least I won't be stressing about money every month.

Yesterday made 4 months I've been with my boyfriend. It seems longer than that and shorter at the same time. It's weird. It's been good though. We do as much as we can when he's not working and then when he's working, I barely get to see him. Lol. We make it work though. And I'm happy, so that's all that matters. :)

We make a special couple, alright.Collapse )

Anyway, still not back into the swing of blogging about life, but hopefully I will in the next coming month or so.
