Oh yea........ Resolutions

Okay, so I totally spaced out on making resolutions. So with about 4 1/2 hours to go I better figure some out. Well since I'm getting married in Sept, obviously fitting into that wedding dress is numero uno priority. I'd like to love 20-30 lbs. I've got about 8 months to do it, so it's won't be Easy but it's not impossible. I'd also like to run my May 5K in under 30 minutes. Find a good job. Keep my books organized and read at least 50 books in 2011. I think those are achievable and do able, so I'm going to leave it at that.

Heaven sent eye liner

Ohhhhh my. I bought this on a whim from the MAC counter. It's the Penultimate Eye Liner in Rapidblack. It's sort of like a marker, has a solid tip and is inky black. I tend to love the retro black lined eye look and this makes it SO easy. Its easy to make it a thickish line for that look or to male it thin for a more subtle look.
I'm in love.

Christmas gift cards rule

I love shiseido products! And the girl that works at the counter in macys palm desert is simply awesome. She's really sweet, does beautiful makeup and has a great memory. She asked how wedding planning was coming! Anyway, got $50 gift card and ran right over. I wanted an eyelash curler and something new. She sat me down to play with colors and did a beautiful bronzey eye on me. She popped on some pink blush and I was amazed. I'm always wary of blush, but this color is so pretty! And I got a free awesome little bag! It's perfect sized.
So now I'm on a makeup kick. I've always loved makeup but working from home and being unemployed don't really lend a lot of opportunities to wear it. But poopy on that, I'm going to wear it all and love it! Hooray!

Books and Job Hunting

I like Urban fantasy and paranormal romance books. There I said it. I usually try to hide the fact that I read these since it sounds so cheesy. With the popularity of Twilight and numerous other paranormal movies and such, it's like a cool hipster kid thing to like this stuff. I am not a cool hipster kid. The upside to this is that due to the popularity there's definitely more books out now then there used to be. When I was younger the sci fi fantasy section was full of mostly masculine stuff and spacey stype books. I love all the strong female leads that the new UF/PR books have. Granted there are plenty of craptastic books out there, but the series I'm in love with are awesome. Which leads to why I'm writing about this. The new Cat and Bones books comes out in two months! I absolutely love the Night Huntress series, Cat and Bones are my favorite characters of all time. I can re read these books often and never be tired of them! I'm a newish redhead to so I secretly like to image myself as Cat. Okay well now that's not a secret. Oh well. Good thing no one reads this haha
In other news, job hunting is rough. I really wanted this one job as an office manager. They wanted accounting background, so I figured it would be great considering that's what I'm studying in school. I'd love to work in an office again, stay busy, help people. But I haven't heard back from them. And when I was waiting for my interview, the owner guy walked out a girl and showed her the office and back room. He didn't show me any of that stuff. I'll still keep my fingers crossed but I'm also still looking for other work. It's rough in this economy, there just isn't much out there! Makes me miss Bargain Network :-)

School, work and whaaaaa?

Ugh. Finals are over, I did pretty good in my classes, 3.533 GPA. School doesn't start again until the end of Jan. I've been looking for a job too. It's really difficult. I had a second interview today and should be having another one in the next few days. I don't know if I"ll get it. The guy today seemed nice but it's still nerve wracking to just hope someone likes you enough to hire you. There was another girl in there before me and I don't know if she was there for the same job but I think she was. On their way out he showed her the office and a back area that he didn't show me, so I don't know, maybe they already made a decision? Who knows, I'm trying not to dwell on that.
Had Christmas with my family, it was awesome, but it makes me sad to be so far from them. Street fair tonight and then Brendan has the next two days off so we'll spend christmas together :-)

So lonely

Raphael went to his new home last Thursday. It's kind if pitiful how much I miss the little guy. The house is quieter now, less poops randomly around, and less cuddles from the most mellow lover boy dog ever. He is living in Michigan now. I sent him off with a sleeping bag I made for him and his new parents said he loves to be in it to keep warm so at least he has a little if me out there in the mitten state.
For me: back to studying for finals. I can't wait for this to be over. I need a break!!!
