how times have changed

i went to check my livejournal calendar for something earlier and then i just started reading amazingly old entries. i've been reading them for probably over an hour. life was so different when i was 18. i always think back, and say to myself that it would be great to be 18 again. reading over my entries, i don't think i was as happy as i once thought. i'm in a much better headspace now. my social life was probably a lot more exciting, though. it's funny how many people i mention in my old entries and i can't even remember who they are. thankfully i'm still friends with the people who matter.

lol omgz corey taylor

on friday i was asked if last night (monday) i could do a favour for her, and escort her daughter to a concert. was slipknot / machinehead.

it actually wasn't as bad/scary as i thought it would be. slipknot were pretty entertaining.

but i forgot how annoying and smelly metalheads could be. the whole night i felt like my head was in someone's armpit. i think i was the most colourful person there and the only colour i was wearing was a blue cardigan.

all in all, it was an interesting experience. and a free one at that.

p.s. they didn't play wait & bleed. hello, it's the only song people know. as if not play it.

finally took the plunge and went to the surgeon for a consultation about my wisdom teeth. they were annoying me so much i was chewing on my right cheek when i ate. my dentist gave me a temporary solution but my teeth are still annoying me. so, next week i go into hospital for surgery to have my four wisdom teeth extracted. kinda nervous, kinda not. i'm not really caring at the moment, but i know i will once i check myself into the hospital. no big deal, people have it done all the time.

i'm really starting to notice things in people that i can no longer stand. people are being very arrogant and inconsiderate. i can't be bothered with a lot of people right now. and it seems they can't be bothered with me either.

i overhauled my bedroom. it's taken me a month or two to finally really get the ball rolling. i "finished" it last night which was a relief. when i say finish, i mean i shoved everything in my cupboard for next week when i'm at home, then i can go through that stuff properly. but for now, my bed's moved and my chair is in a good spot. i really like it. feels comfortable. but i'm definitely paying for it today. my calves and my back are killing so much it's making me walk like a pregnant lady. i'm never cleaning my room again.

my lunch was terrible. i need to barf.

i'm so over livejournal. and just about everything else. as usual..

so i finally got myself a new job. i get to work with my bff and the other losers kewl peeps. i'm excited for: change, money/saving, lunch dates and more saving.

what did i say? saving? hell no. louis vuitton is taking me and a guest to tahiti. i don't know what that means but i like it. i also like free moet and lots of it.

i'm so tired. just when i was really starting to get into my new (read: temporary) position at work, i have to let it go again. for several reasons. but i'm excited!

anyone think a new wardrobe is in order since i no longer have to wear a uniform? yes? thank you. i agree.

my birthday fireban bbq

- the turn out at my birthday "bbq"
- bebe being there and being pretty entertaining
- having a few people around that really deserve my time

- there being a fireban yesterday
- people acting like tools
- a couple of people letting me down as usual
- sun stroke

all in all, it was a good turn out but it's not something i'd do again. it was definitely too hot down at the park to do it, but there was no way i was having everyone at our house for a bbq. i paid a price for it, but that happens sometimes.

work is pretty lame, but i'm leaving as soon as i've covered someone's holidays in april. the interviews keep coming and going so i may have to live off my annual leave for a while. but i'm somewhat happy to do that as long as i'm not working in a place that has no respect for me or anyone else.

that's pretty much it. just the usual work and sleep happening in my life at the moment. when i'm awake i think about work, and when i'm asleep i dream about shit that goes on at work. it's lame but there's only a month or so to go! yay.
