I'm 30 now. LOL

I'm cleaning up the people I follow on twitter and see that one of the reporters I follow is now in Charlotte, North Carolina. My initial reaction was "is this the same guy?!" I go to his facebook page, and sure enough, in March he moved to Charlotte. I was like, okay, cool. I'm looking at videos of his reporting out there and I find out that we're relatively the same age. I honestly thought he was older than me.

then that made me feel like I haven't done anything with my life. It didn't necessarily depress me, but I'm disappointed in myself.

so...

I've been 30 for a week now.

Am I supposed to feel any different? Because I don't. LOL

I still feel like the little kid who still lives at home with her parents, only now it's more like the teenager who just got her driver's license and has to beg her parents to use the car. Because really, I do have to beg my dad to use the car. It's really quite sad.

I think I'll start to feel more like an adult once I have a better paying/full time job and my own car.

For as independent as I am now, it still feels like a depend on my parents quite a bit.

I've also been thinking about making a list of things I want to do by the time I'm 40. Within the list will be small "milestone accomplishments" I want to achieve in the next 3 months, 6 months, 12 months, by age 35, then by age 40. A lot of the list is already travel oriented that hinges on me finding a better job, which is my goal for what I want to achieve in the next 6 months.



PS new default icon. It's from my birthday.

Okay…where to start.

Woke up Sunday morning and for a few hours I was able to fart around on the computer. Then when I went to give the cat her food, my dad started singing (horribly off key) Happy Birthday to me. I hurried back to my room and pretended to be sleep. Then when my mom was going to the bathroom, she stopped in to whish me a happy birthday as well. I spent maybe a good 30 minutes ‘liking’ all the birthday wishes on facebook and responding to some birthday wishes on twitter.

Around 840 I started to get ready for church. My dad then came into my room with a big ass packing box. Nope, he wasn’t kicking me out. LOL it was my birthday gift. ). (later I'll get to what was inside).

Then, about 10 minutes later, my mom came back to my room. they forgot the card. )

Now going to church. While we were driving, I did something stupid and daring. From the backseat, I stuck my hand, with my phone, out the window, while the car was moving, so that I could get a couple of pictures of myself. )

During the church service, I was pulled from my office (Friday I wasn't able to get all my work done because I'd run out of copy machine toner and didn't get a replacement cartridge until Sunday morning) and the congregation (like 10 people lol) sang Happy birthday to me. I stuck around for another 10 minutes before going back to my office and finishing my work.

After church, we had a Board meeting. I'm on the board and am responsible to typing up the minutes from the previous meeting...so I passed those out, then waited for my mom to start things. Apparently I was having a cake. and they sang happy birthday to me...again.

pictures from church )

Then after church we went home and I said I was going to nap for an hour, but I ended up reading some fic, replying to more tweets, and 'liking' more FB birthday wishes. I still had 1 (or 2) more stops for the day. We left home around 330 to go to the Wine Bar in Long Beach to meet up with masheek2Mere and dontelltheelfJamie. I also thought more of my friends I invited from FB would join in, but alas, they didn't. However, Mere's mom, dad and sister were there, and my mom stuck around, so that was night. But before all of that, my mom dropped my dad off at the Pastor's then my mom and I got to the Wine Bar.

pictures from the Wine Bar )

Then after we left the Wine bar, my mom and I went back to the Pastor's house where we were given more food before my parents and I could leave. We got home around 9pm and I wanted to crash. But right as I was going to sleep, I was told I needed to wash and put away the dishes. So I washed the dishes, read some and went to bed.

Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday here, either through private message or virtual gift. Thank you anymnous person who gave me 1000 tokens. I was able to change my userhead and now I'm trying to decide what to do with the other 899 tokens lol

Today I went to the courthouse, where no one really remembered yesterday was my birthday. I don't get why I was asked when my birthday was a few months ago. I guess they only "celebrate" it if it's during the week. L wished me a happy belated birthday, then we got to work. I did my usual Monday, post courthouse errands, then I went to the T-Mobile store and bought myself a new phone! for the last 3 weeks or so I'd been having problems with my blackberry, then yesterday I kept getting sim card error messages and I was freaking out I would lose all my contacts and whatnot on the sim card. Well the guy at the T-Mobile store helped me out. He suggested a phone for me, a myTouch that I named McDanno (lmao). I also got a screen protector and hard case. all my contacts were transfered to the new sim card (my old one was terribly out of date) and since I got home at 4pm or so, I've been playing around with McDanno (hehe) and figuring out the ins and outs.

If anyone plays 'Words with Friends', look me up! I'm simplyn2deep!

I'm getting ready to go to the Hollywood Bowl to see Igudesman & Joo (& More)

one of their performances )

no telling what they'll do tonight, though.

But now...I must be off! Have to go to Subway before meeting the bus at the Green Line in 45 minutes!

Pictures to come!!

Home from getting my hair done and taking Jasmine shopping for her b-day.

We got about a mile from my cousin's place nearly an hour early, so we stopped at Carl's Jr. for breakfast, then got to her place 15 mins early. Hung around talking and she started on my hair at exactly 9 am.

Before I knew it, it was 11am and she was almost done! I believe the longest was sewing in the weave on the left side of my hair. By 1 pm she was finished and taking pictures

see the pretty! )

Then after all that, Jasmine asked my mom if she could get her a backpack and folder (or give her the money) for her b-day. I sent Jasmine a text saying that I would be getting it for her, and if she wasn't busy, we could get her around 2 pm. So we did, and also dropped Marlin off at football practice. 2 Targets and a Walmart later, Jasmine had her backpack, some pjs (she's having a sleepover on Friday), binder and paper and some shoes! Marlin had some things as well.

Went to redbox and got The Lorax, The Dead Undead and The Darkest Hour. I don't know if I'll be able to watch them all tonight, but some will more than likely be watched tomorrow.

woo hoo!

woo hoo!

After getting lost for about 10 minutes, my mom and I made it to the Hollywood Bowl! I went to the ticket booth, gave my voucher, then crossed my fingers that the concert I wanted was still available...AND IT WAS!

the image might show up super big (well it is for me) but I re-sized it to 512 x 384, so I don't know why it's showing up in it's original size.
2 tickets )

I also need to re-check the directions I got because somehow I missed a freeway and that's how my mom and I got lost.

I'm so excited! my first time to the Hollywood Bowl and it'll be a great way to start off my 30th birthday

yeah!

1. Scott has absolutely RUINED Cahuenga Blvd for me! I giggle every time it comes up in directions.

2. Got my 2 complimentary reserved bench seats tickets for the Hollywood Bowl! it was my prize from the Transit TV game I played! (also got some earbuds, which I really needed!) Now trying to decide on a Tuesday or Thursday my mom and I can go. We have to use the tickets before September 11. Since we're bound by dates to choose from (September 4, 6, 11 are the only dates we can pick), my mom and I decided on September 6. Igudesman & Joo (& More) is the concert. From the video clip I looked at, it looks like it'll be fun.

3. bought the supplies my cousin will need to do my hair on the 4th. I had to go to 2 beauty supply stores to find it. UGH but it's all purchased and waiting. Sunday night I'll wash my hair.

4. No work on Monday! will probably spend the day packing (if only to shut my dad up)

5. I really need to ask my sister about staying with her while my parents are on vacation and the apartment is being renovated.

I believe that's all. I need to find out when we're leaving to get the Hollywood Bowl tickets. I rather do it now than wait until Wednesday and have everything sold out and not be able to go.

my birthday is in 13 days!!!!

I have a choice to make too. buy myself a new phone or have my cousin do my hair. I chose to have my cousin do my hair. It'll be this style )

I don't know if I'll have her to do my makeup though. I'm all for being more daring with how my hair is done and the color of the clothes I wear, but I don't think I'm ready for bright makeup as well.

I also figured that 30 years old!!!! needs special pictures, so I was going to go to Photomaker in the mall and have pictures taken in my birthday dress, but I decided that I'd save myself the money and have my dad take my picture. For all that he annoys the hell out of me when taking pictures, they come out nice when I just let him do his thing. and then upload them to Costco and have prints done.

Also, as much as I'd love to buy myself a 2nd outfit to wear on my birthday, I'm sort of running short on cash. That's never good. So...birthday dress will have to do. I might buy myself a new pair of shoes and a purse. Yeah. That might be doable.

Also, about 25 days after my birthday is the start of the weekend family camp with the Spanish church. They gave Lora and I "permission" slips to sign up. I have the cost in my office and it's sort of outrageous. Something like $160 for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That may or may not include a meal on Friday, but includes 3 meals on Saturday and 2 meals on Sunday. There's other activities to do Friday (paint ball, mountain biking, zip line) for additional cost ($5-$10). I went last year and had an okay time. I mainly went so that Staci would have someone to "hang out" with, but I don't know if she'll be going this year. The other girls who are my "age" (I'm probably 5 years older than them) will either have their boyfriends or husbands with them...or we just have NOTHING in common and I'll feel like the third wheel (regardless of having known some of them for at least 15 years). It boils down to: do I have the money and do I want to go. Last year my church paid for me, Lora and Staci, but the church doesn't have that sort of money anymore. The membership is dwindling, and so is the offering coming in. So paying for stuff like this would probably be out. I probably have a week more to think about it and pay it.

Hmm can't think of anything else. Gonna pack up some more books and some other knick-knacks on my shelves.

I was going to order 2 of the dresses I posted about before, but when I went to the site, they didn't have my size! So I had to think quick and went with these items )
simplyn2deep: (Hawaii Five 0::Kono::red top)
so I want to be like those celebrity women who wear several different outfits during the course of a day.

for me, I want a new outfit to wear to church, then something for after church/lunch, then something for getting drinks and possibly dinner

so that's like 3 outfits.

under the cut are some of my choices

clothes! clothes! clothes! )

I need to make a decision on 2 of these soon. I'll have to have them shipped to me and I'd like to have them on or before September 8.
