32 is the new 23!

I proudly claim everyone one of my 32 years!

Here's to 32 more! (but please let it be more than 32 years!)

I was born on September 9, 1982 at 3:24 am via an emergency c-section. I don't know if I was late or if it was due to complications. I was either an oops baby or this is your last chance baby. I've been told in the past I was an oops. It made sense since my brother is 14 years older than me and my sister is 16 years older than me. However, today my mom told me I was a last chance baby. Her doctor told her that if she wanted any more children, she needed to do so now. She was 36 years old when I was born.

Anyway...

First: I got a cute card from dontelltheelfdontelltheelf

Second: tkeylasunsettkeylasunset dedicated a chapter of one of my favorite fics to me: Unalphabetized Spices of Bulletproof Baby Blankets

Third: I got a cute baby otter virtual gift from goneaheadgoneahead

eta: oh wow. I'm sorry that I forgot to thank dante_s_helldante_s_hell for the early birthday wishes too.

And all the many people on twitter who have been tweeting them too me as well.

My plans for tomorrow? Skipping class is sadly out. I have tests this week and I'm sure information will be given about them on Monday and Tuesday. I am, however, going to see if I can get to my nail salon during my nearly 3 hour break, but I have a feeling with the way public transportation is, I would be cutting it too close and get to my 2nd class late and this is the instructor who said that if we aren't in class by 12:35 to not bother coming in. And we get marked absent. I'll pass on that and go to the salon after class.

I didn't get to the party store to get my Kiss me! It's my Birthday! button, and that's okay. I have a feeling that someone on campus or on the bus might try kiss me.

This has been an update. I'm going to study for some tests.

I've been saving towards going to Hawaii for my 35th birthday since my 30th last year and so far what I have saved is laughable.

$50/month for the last 12 months has gotten me $600. I will continue to put away $50/month until I don't have a job at the end of the year, but that will still only get me $750. Even if I let it collect interest, that's not going to get me much of anything and eventually I'm going to have to break into that because I do still have bills to pay.

*sighs*

Anyway, I figure...a week in Hawaii, maybe a bit of Island hopping...that's going to be pretty expensive. By my estimation, I'll need to have saved $220/month for the next 46 months...or I could do a cruise and it would be half the cost.

The point is...saving for this is going to be nearly impossible and that really sucks.

Where's a sugar daddy when I need one?!

and...

18 hours and 31 minutes until my birthday.

yay!

Saturday was my friend's son's 1st birthday party. Holy crap it was hot at the park. But it was a lot of fun watching the little kids run around and what not. More than twice I was asked when I'd be having kids. More than twice I asked "When am I going to find a man worthy enough." It got them to shut up, but a few of the well meaning grandmothers wanted to set me up with their grandsons. Thanks. That's nice of you. I told them to send them to the church to talk to me. lol I'm totally rolling with this. I'm not taking anything seriously. I just give up. It happens, it happens. If it doesn't, then it doesn't.

Today there was a picnic with my mom's side of the family. This time we didn't have to drive 30 miles away as we went to a park about 5 miles from where we live. The rest of the family had to drive to us for a change!

It was an okay time...about as okay a time as I have with this part of the family. Plus I suddenly got a tooth ache. Took 2 extra strength advil. that did nothing but knock me out for 90 mins to 2 hours. Ate some food, then took a ibuprofen. That didn't didn't help much either. I won't have the money to go to the dentist until the beginning of November, and chances are I'll have to have a root canal. I hope that's what needs to be done to fix this problem until I can get the rest of the work done that I know I need.

In other news, my niece Jasmine turns 17 on Friday. I mentioned that Blue Man Group was playing at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday and Saturday and she was all excited and asked if I could get tickets. I thought hey...that's the weekend before my birthday, so why not kill 2 birthday events at 1 time. So I buy the tickets for the concert ON her birthday, then send her the text message about it. All I got in response was ok. wow. calm down Jasmine! Don't be so excited. It's just Blue Man Group.

This is exactly why I don't do stuff for her. Where's the excitement? Where's the "Thank you auntie!" SOMETHING! I'm also going to buy us something to eat there (just something to snack on), unless she gets money from her mom/dad to spend.

Fuck...I didn't have to do anything for her birthday since I got her the gift card to buy herself new shoes for school (that at least got me a thank you). And I know, giving gifts shouldn't be done to get something in return, but an acknowledgment would be nice.

Anyway. Back to school tomorrow. I hope this week goes by fast. I know tomorrow will as it's my short day. Finished with classes by 11 am.

I need to finish washing. I don't want to be up late tonight.

right so...

it's like I don't even have the internet...or I have dial-up because I can't download anything and I have to refresh pages a few times before it will load.

UGH!

but at least I'm able to get on at all. I just don't get why I have a slow down all of a sudden!

Maybe I can asked my sister to use her laptop when I get back so that I can do my downloads and clear out my LJ inbox of the messages I'm keeping that have download links.

In a few weeks I'll have something exciting (to me) to post that's sort of fandom related? I don't know, but I'm excited about it.

I went by the apartment. We have a doorbell again! After years of not having one (my dad took it out for some reason), I saw the white button on the outside of the door. I wanted to push it and hope I could hear what it sounds like, but I feel weird going back there. I haven't seen the owner in a few days so I can't tell him that my dad wants him to call him (my dad) bc I don't know if the owner got the note I left last week. So from what I can see from the outside, we have vertical blinds in the kitchen and living room and a new doorbell lol I know know if the carpeting or flooring in the kitchen and bathroom has been replaced. I don't know if the cabinets have been replaced either. I don't even know if there are vertical blinds in the back bedrooms (I hope there are!).

Saturday at 3pm there's an alumni event for my high school. I don't know where or if it's even supposed to happen. The FB page just says it's going to happen on Saturday at 3 pm.

Also on Saturday is masheek2masheek2's birthday party. I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to do about transportation. I can drive to the park & ride and take the train or drive all the way there, or do public transportation the whole way and call my sister for a pick up. I'd rather not do option 3 because I'm sure she will be tired from spending a good portion of the day at a craft fair. Going to the park & ride would probably be best. It would save me gas and I wouldn't have to worry about feeding a meter in front of the bar or worrying about validating my parking by parking in the structure next to the bar. I have a few days left to decide.

Next Friday is the holiday luncheon for the Legal Aid staff and volunteers. I can't believe I've been volunteering there for 10 months! January 31/February 1, 2013 will be 1 year! I went for the interview on January 31, then started on February 1. I wonder if they will remember...

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.
