Hey everyone! Happy April! I’ve been around, but not WordPress, unfortunately. I feel like a dick for never writing, and when I do, I say I’m gonna start back up again, but never do. Ugh! If I had just followed through when I got my PC back .. but nooo, I decided I wanted to be lazy. But I still continued to do research and such on blogging and how to be successful in this and so on and so forth.

I really need to get back into the swing of things though, especially now. I say that because on Monday I received my very first VoxBox from Influenster, yay! Don’t know much about Influenster, VoxBoxes, and all that jazz? Well basically, Influenster is a website that you join and write reviews, ask questions, hook up your social media accounts, etc. Sometimes the send you VoxBoxes, which is basically stuff sent to you to review on your social media websites. The more of a following you have, and the better you do, the more products you’ll receive to review. Cool, eh? I think I explained it right =P and if you want to know more, or sign up! Just click here, please (it’s a my referral link). Or, you can check out my badge, will I’ll be posting sometime tonight. But ya, since I received this VoxBox, I feel like it’s an awesome time for me to hopefully start writing in here again, especially if I’m gonna be doing reviews for these guys! Oh, and also because I signed up for Writing 101, ha! I probably should have finished Blogging 101 first, but fuck it .. Blogging will come around again. And it’s still by The Daily Post, so it’ll be good. I just hope it’s not TOOOOO challenging. But maybe it’ll also help me learn how to write better (ha) .. as in not always the words “but”, “oh, and…”, etc.

But ya .. what’s been going on with me the past couple months? Psssh, not shit! It sucks! No luck in finding a job (although I’m not looking hard enough), and still no motivation to do anything.  Well .. I have a little more motivation than before, but still. I started taking my thyroid medication, but not everyday. Not sure if I explained this before, but I’m supposed to take it everyday “an hour before breakfast”. I’m kind of nocturnal, so I go to bed anywhere between 2-5am, and wake up between 1-4pm .. yeah, I sleep a long time. But when I wake up, I want to eat! I can’t wait. So I put an alarm on my phone which wakes me up at 9am telling me to take it .. but 3/4 of the time I just turn it off. And that 1/4 I do want to take it, 1/2 the time I don’t even have water by me, and I’m not beat for going downstairs to get some. But the other half I remember to bring water up. Oh, and speaking of not working .. I’ve been planning on going to a few temp agencies in the next week or two to update my resume (I’ve worked with all the ones I’m planning on going to). And April has always been a good month for me to find work. SOO, wish me luck. I definitely need it.Tired of being a bum on my couch .. and speaking of couch! I finally got a real bed! Apparently it came from my dad’s girlfriend’s sister’s house. It’s just a twin, wahh. But it works. It’s comfyish. I still can’t sleep on my stomach though due to my back issues which sucks because I like to, but when I do I wake up in SOO much pain and can’t move. But yeah, it also came with 2 little dressers and 2 end tables .. none match, but who cares. I need to clean up there, but again .. laziness. And my sister needs to help cos of the shit is her clothes .. I told her if it’s not put away by the time I get around to cleaning up and organizing up there, I’m stuffing it all into a closest . Which wouldn’t be too bad on her part, but she loves to whine. I just want it to look not like a mess. Especially since once I start working and paying rent, it’s legit going to be mine.

Hmm, what else is new? I made 2 vlogs lol. Check em out below. They suck though. I’m not talking about anything interesting (well, maybe. and it was interesting to me), the lighting isn’t great, etc. etc. And it was recording on the front/screen camera of an iPhone 4. I haven’t made anymore though cos I ended up dropping my phone in the toilet =X like, a month ago. Luckily it survived, but the sound doesn’t work on my phone anymore except the ringer when people call .. no texts, alerts, music, or videos. Blah. Plus my microphone was shit before, that’s why I’m kinda screaming in my videos. So I don’t know if it works at all now; I doubt it. I was hoping my phone did totally break though, cos then that’d mean I’d probably get a new phone. Which I can’t get even though my line is eligible for an upgrade because my dad doesn’t wanna renew my contract since I haven’t paid him for my line in over a year. But once I get a job and start paying rent and the bill I can get a new phone .. definitely you gonna get a Galaxy or a Note! Fuck an iPhone!

Well, I think that’s all I have to talk about tonight. Here’s my question for y’all .. What keeps you motivated to keep on blogging? Where do you come up ideas on what to blog about? Any tips, advice, etc. you’re willing to offer?

Thanks for reading .. I hope y’all stay tuned. I WILL be back, even if it’s just for my VoxBox reviews =P Night!

PS – You’ll learn more about this first VoxBox in one of my next posts.

What’s up y’all? Sorry I haven’t posted in quite some time; like I said in my last post, my dad took away the PC (and the cable box) for smoking in the house, so I haven’t been able to write. He put the PC back a few days ago, but I really haven’t had the motivation t?o write and continue on with Blogging 101, which I definitely want to start back up on .. I really hope they don’t close it all down after tomorrow; that would soo suck!

Life’s been crappy. I haven’t been doing much. I’m not even really going to IOP. I just sleep all day and go dose. I take my thyroid medication (levothyroxine) here and there, but I just can’t  seem to take it everyday, especially cos I’m supposed to take it an hour before eating in the morning and yeah that’s kinda hard. I’m waiting on my tax money (I filed on Thursday) so I can buy some clothes and fun stuff. Speaking of fun stuff, I never really wear makeup .. never have. But I really want to start. I ended up getting a whole bunch of stuff in the past couple weeks, so I basically have EVERYTHING I need except most brushes, lip liner, eye primer .. it’s all drug store brand, but whatever. But I just absolutely SUCK at doing my makeup .. I’ve got the whole foundation thing down I think, but I still see my pores and scars and zits even after putting on primer and concealer and powder and stuff //shrug. And eye shadow just makes me wanna cry lol I’ve watched SO many tutorials I don’t know what  I’m doing wrong .. is it the lack of proper brushes or not having the right primer (i’ve been putting face primer on my eye lids) or what? So yeah, if any of y’all know of any awesome beauty vloggers or bloggers, preferably people who do beginner, tutorial, drug store, etc. stuff (I dig Emily Eddington [emilynoel83] [blog], Wayne Goss [gossmakeupartist] [blog], Marlena [Makeup Geek] [blog], and Sinead [TheMakeupChair] [blog]) PLEASE HELP A GIRL OUT! Oh, and speaking of getting my hair cut .. I got some purple hair bleach (it bleaches AND dyes at the same time I love it! I’ve been using it for yearssss. I’m surprised by the reviews but oh well! I don’t even listen to the time directions. I rinse when my hair looks good. Also, it doesn’t come out THAT bright, so if you want it super bright you gotta buy the dye too. It used to come with dye as well but not anymore =/) by N’Rage called the N’ Rage Streaks N Color Highlighting Kit and some pink hair dye called Bubble Head Pink by Beyond the Zone Color Jamz, so I was thinking that once the purple fades (or it’s not as bright as I want it to be) I’ll put the pink in .. but I was snooping around earlier today actually and found in my sister’s dye kit that she actually has some purple AND pink dye AND bleach (powder and developer) so I might use up all of the purple and then go with the pinks; well see. so once I get my hair cut I’m gonna have my sister (not sure if I mentioned this before, but she does hair) section my hair so I can do my “bangs” or something cute .. I wish my hair was thin (it’s super thick) that way it’d look cute not short but like a little longer than shoulder length .. like just enough to put in a high pony tail. That way I could color it with unnatural colors better .. kinda like vintageortacky on YouTube .. I love her hair cos it’s like black on the bottom and pink/purple on top, and 3/4 of it is black and just 1/4 is pink/purple. But yeah, I think since my hair is really thick, I couldn’t pull of a cut that short .. I mean I could cos when I first met Kyle my hair was that short, but I also had a job then so I always maintained the cut //shrug oh well.

But yeah, I just wanted to say hi for now. I don’t have any cigarettes to keep me going (I will tomorrow though), so I’m not going to write much tonight, let alone catch up on the course. I may do a couple days worth of the 5 Year Challenge since it’s pretty easy, and I have some answers written out already.

AHHHH TOO MANY TAGS!! BUT I NEED ALL THE HELP I CAN WITH THIS MAKEUP STUFF!!

If you noticed, I highlighted my questions to you. Before I did, I looked at my previous posts to see if I did, and I either forgot, or didn’t have any questions .. ahh! I said before that I really want to interact with y’all, so to make it easier I’m going to bold the questions .. so yeah. Help a sister out! 😀

After talking about doing my hair, I think I might just do it tonight 😀 well, the bleaching anyways .. need to shower first, though!

I don’t want to start with “good evening” on every single post I make, but it’s safe to assume that almost all of my posts will be posted (or at least wrote and edited) hours after the sun has gone down… at least during winter time. I think I’m slowly starting to become nocturnal, and while it’s not totally a bad thing… I’d rather be somewhat normal and have a normal schedule.

Before I get to today’s post on Day 2! Of my Blogging 101 course, I’d just like to say two things… #1 that I finally got my Wreck This Journal Everywhere! Although it (AND Wreck This Journal) really doesn’t seem as fun as I thought it would be. I need to look at every single page though. And I want to start it tonight, especially since it snowed today! And I believe one of the questions says to drag it around, outside, on a string. Although maybe it might be a little more creative if I waited until tomorrow and drug it around in the dirty, grey gutter snow? Let me know, since I have to go out tomorrow anyway to dose just like every other day. So, let me bang out this post so I can clean my bathroom, take a shower, and go on with my horrible* life… and when I say that, I mean that I’m probably going to start on Day 3 since it was posted a little more than an hour ago (I live in NJ, USA [EST -5] and I’m started writing this around 8:15pm). #2 Thank you to all of the WONDERFUL people who liked and commented my previous post, which was Day 1 of Blogging 101. I’d also like to thank all of you who decided to follow me after reading it… or any of my other posts. It really, truly means a lot to me that you guys, my new fans! Actually want to “hear” (read) what I have to say! UGH, SO HAPPY ❤ ❤ Alright, on with the show!

For today’s lesson, I’m supposed to “edit my title and tagline”. My first thought was something like “OMG NO WAY DUDE; IT TOOK ME *DAYS* TO THINK OF “THOUGHTS GONE AWRY; I’M NOT BEAT!” But at the end, I was told that if I’m “already thrilled”, I can still publish a post. Great! Because although I really do like my tagline as well, I don’t mind having to change it; mainly because it’s already used in my bio. Speaking of my bio, I still need to update it to the new one that I wrote for yesterday’s lesson.

Surprisingly, it didn’t take long at all to come up with my tagline since I just copied and pasted it from my Twitter, @blo0dchild. Ha, funny… but in all seriousness, it really didn’t take that long to think up. And as mentioned before, I hate writing bios. And this is kind of the same thing. I mentioned somewhere

OKAY IT’S NOW ALMOST 10:30, FML! DUDE, I HATE WHEN THIS HAPPENS… Okay, my dad ordered pizza a little bit before I started writing. When it got here, I figured I’d watch a couple of videos on YouTube while I ate so I don’t get ick all over my keyboard. +60 minutes later, I’m watching pointless, mind-numbing videos about hip hop artists in the Illuminati. Thank god I came to when I did, or I’d still be watching. Anyways, back to what I was talking about…

Great, I forgot where I was going with that. Ahh well. Tagline… alright, basica I REMEMBERED!!! WOW! Alright, I was talking about how getting opinions on blog names from a couple of friends. One friend suggested I use the work “junkie”, but I declined because I really don’t want to focus on using and all that good stuff. But maybe incorporating my addiction and mental illness in my tagline could work? And be cute and funny with it. Something like .. “the thoughts and ______ of a crazy ex junkie”. I almost always describe myself as a “crazy ex junkie” anyway, so I’ll run with it. But the word “thoughts” is already in my title, so I don’t want to repeat it. And I can’t think of another word to go in there. Maybe scratch that all together, and put “the rants and raves of a crazy ex junkie”? But then it just seems as if I’m doing reviews and opinion pieces and stuff.

…the ruminating journal of a crazy ex junkie…

ramblings, nonsense, babble, thought, ponder, contemplate, complain, gripe, chatter, praise, scatterbrained, frivolous, whimsical, lost in thought, abstracted, out to lunch (lol), unpredictable, volatile,

Okay, I’ve come to the conclusion that my new tagline will be… “the unpredictable writings of a volatile ex junkie”.

I changed “crazy” to “volatile” simply because I liked all of the synonyms for volatile on Thesaurus.com. And I’m definitely unpredictable, would you agree? I mean, sometimes I can write legit, intellectual stuff… but other times, I can also write ignorant nonsense <~~~ I’M WARNING YOU NOW. I also wanted to change “journal” simply because it didn’t sound right with everything else.

I’m pleasantly surprised that thinking of a new tagline only took a half hour, oh snap! I’m off to edit, post, and continue watching Illuminati videos.

Before I go, I want to give a little shout out to Mass he? (only left an e-mail address, but I figured he was a guy because his email address has the name “Spencer” in it) commented, on my previous post and asked some pretty important questions: What do you do all day? How do you survive if you don’t work? Well, Mr. Mass… here’s you answer (I actually commented back to him, but I figured it I’d also add to this post so more people could see it :)):

You ask why I do all day and how do I survive if I don’t work. I *GRATEFULLY* live at my dad’s with him and my sister .. the only thing that sucks about living with him (I don’t mind living with her, expect for the fact that she never puts her dishes in the dishwasher!) is that it really, truly seems like he’s pushing my buttons ON PURPOSE so I can freak out and he can kick me out AGAIN. Again? Yeah, a few years ago, BEFORE I even started getting high (on heroin… he never cared that I smoked pot) because I freaked out on him for doing his button pushing thing. What I mean by that is that freaks out on me for *ABSOLUTELY NO REASON* (here’s one – he freaked out on me tonight actually for not telling him there was no more color safe bleach, and he couldn’t do his *ANY* laundry because of it! #1 I never use that shit, and neither does my sister #2 he damn well knew he was running low OBVIOUSLY since he’s the only one who uses it!!!), so I freak out back, and boom I’m in the crisis center or holding because he called the cops on a false accusation, and because he’s the homeowner and I’m documented crazy, he wins 😦 I survive on “government handouts” lol as I like to call them; food stamps and Medicaid. Unfortunately I’m not receiving welfare (cash assistance) but I really don’t care because if I do extra work around the house, my dad buys me smokes. Andd I sleep all day. Literally hahaha. Seriously though, for some reason I’m nocturnal, and I try SO hard to get into a normal thing, and fail miserably. So I wake up around 2-3pm, go to IOP (and dose) from 4-7pm (or sometimes 8pm), and then chill out until around 6-7am, and do it all over again!

GOODNIGHT ❤

I SERIOUSLY hate thinking of tags (and categories); I hope there’s a lesson on it.

My weekend was fabulous! And by fabulous, I mean boring and typical.

Howdy ho, yo! It’s currently about 11:07pm on Sunday, January 4th .. let’s see how long it takes for me to write, edit, and post this (I am estimating about 3 hours)! Above this (but once I edit and post this, it’ll be below this), I started writing a post for Saturday on Friday night/early Saturday morning. But by Saturday morning (8AMish), I have like, 6 cigarettes left, and no $ to get more .. luckily, I was able to space them out, and smoked my last one this morning around 10am .. then I went back to sleep, and woke up around 5pm. I’ll write more about that in a little bit.

So before I start with the stuff I stuff I started the other night, I just wanted to say that I’m glad I was able to write tonight [thanks to Andrew] (I’ll talk about that soon), cos I want to be able to post everyday, and if not everyday, then at least write something everyday. I also want to say this is going to be a VERY long post .. like legit “too long” Shit, it says I have 6,294 words, and I’ve barely started editing. If I remember, I’ll give you a final count. So, I cut it into a few sections; you will notice by the lines. Enjoy!

—————————————————————–

Well, I woke up around 2:30pm on Friday, and didn’t to sleep until last night (Saturday night/Sunday morning) around 1-1:30am.

The cigarette on the left is a real cigarette, the cigarette on the right is also known as a "little cigar". These "little cigars" are the cheap cigarettes I'm talking about.

The cigarette on the left is a real cigarette, the cigarette on the right is also known as a “little cigar”. These “little cigars” are the cheap cigarettes I’m talking about.

I was planning on going to dose at like 6:30-7am, but I wanted to use the $3 to get a box of Cheyennes. For those of you who don’t know what Cheyennes are, they’re cigarettes, literally. Baby cigars with filters. The best way I could explain them to you (besides showing you a picture) is by saying they’re basically like Black & Mild Filter Tips. If you still don’t know, well here‘s a link to their website, and here’s a picture (they come in all different flavors; check out the website to see them all. I smoke Menthol). They’re really cheap; I can get them for $2.50 a pack, and 20 come in a box. But yeah, back to dosing .. my dad only gave me $3 to take the bus and go dose, and it’s $2.15 round trip. So I ended up texting my cousin, Glenn, and asking if he could pick me up from my house, or at least take me home (he’s also on methadone), even though if I at least took the bus there I still wouldn’t have had enough for a pack because it’s $1.50 one way so I’d be left with $1.50, but it wouldn’t have been THAT hard to try to bum $1 off random people. But yeah, so I texted him, and after impatiently waiting about 30 minutes I said “fuck” it and started walking up to the bus stop. And of course my luck kicked in, because as soon as I got on the bus, Glenn texts me back saying “yeah, sure, I’ll be there in like 30 minutes”. GRR!! I just waited $2.15 for nothing! And of course I couldn’t get a refund on the transfer .. a “transfer” (through NJT, which is basically the only public transportation bus company in NJ) is basically the extra 65 cents I paid to get home .. basically when you get on the bus on your way to your destination, you ask for a transfer and pay your regular fare ($1.50 or more, depending on where you’re going) PLUS the 65 cent (or more, depending on where you’re going) transfer fee .. then a little receipt pops out, and that’s your transfer ticket. Then when you get on the second bus of your journey, you hand the driver that ticket instead of putting money in the thingy. That way you save money since you’re paying full price for a ride. In my case, I just use the transfer to get home because [lucky for me] I can take *5* different buses to/from my house .. but a transfer is only valid for 2 hours, so you have to be “quick”. And you can’t use the transfer on the same bus route you bought it on, so since I bought mine on the 409, I couldn’t go home on the 409. BUT BACK TO MY STORY! So yeah, when I got of the bus I just gave my transfer to a guy who was standing at the bus stop and was like “hey, today’s your lucky day!” and explained to him my story, so he was happy about saving a couple dollars to get to wherever he was going. I told Glenn I was already on my way there and I just needed a ride home when I was on the bus, so after I dosed I just waited around outside for him to get there and then dose. When we were going back to my house, I told him about why I really asked for a ride and stuff, and his kind soul gave me a few cigarettes =]. At that point, I only had 6 left (minus the ones he gave me), so I didn’t even bring the pack with me because I would have smoked all of them on the way.

I spent the rest of my day doing bullshit. My friend Andrew (will explain all about him in a different post), who lives a block away (fun fact: I live at 341 Street Ave., and he lives at 241 =P), hit me up asking if I could get drugs (heroin) and if I wanted to chill and get high and stuff. I said not really since I’m not getting high anymore again and don’t wanna be tempted, and he got all mad and said okay. I told him I’ll still chill and we could try to find burn (marijuana) and smoke and stuff, but he never responded =(.

I’m literally falling asleep at my PC (remember, I wrote this yesterday at like 4pm?) and I literally just added like, 175 (give or take a few since there were a couple books and a tablet on it already) books and stuff to my Amazon wish list (<~~ there’s my list; help a broke white girl? =]) lol, I want to read and do ALL OF THE THINGS lol. I also added some interesting and fun looking books and journals for Jay. Anything you want to suggest? Like, do you know of any “interactive” (is that what they’re even called? Like basically “fill in the blank” journals, like wreck this journal, etc.) journals for kids, such as Doodle Sketchbook: Art Journaling for Boys by Dawn DeVries SokolDude Diary: Unlock the Power!: Write! Draw! Destroy! (Dude Diary is actually a series! Well, at least I think so .. there’s 5 in total) by Mickey & Cheryl Gill, and Q&A a Day for Kids: A Three-Year Journal by Betsy Franco.

These, along with all of the other books I added for Jay [and myself!] seem so much fun! I can’t wait to see him and start them. Oh, I think there was also one that both kid and parent do together, but I can’t find it =/. I did find this book (Just Between Us: A No-Stress, No-Rules Journal for Girls and Their Moms by Meredith & Sofie Jacobs) while getting the information for the previous links, but unfortunately it’s for moms and daughters. Hey, moms of boys: do you know of any books like Just Between Us that are for moms and sons? But yeah, I hope when he and I finally have some real visitation and custody he enjoys them as much as I hope we will! Like I said in my January 1st 5 Year Challenge, I haven’t seen him in over 4 years, and he’s 7.66 (lol, .66 .. yes, I do it like this! He’ll be 7.75 on the 12th =P) now. So although I’m sure he won’t grow out of any of these books anytime soon, I surely do hope we finally get some real visitation sooner rather than later =/

Most of the books I added to my wish list had to do with art, interactive, etc. journaling and creative writing, along with Jay’s books and a few randoms. Seriously, Amazon is the bomb. Especially with the free shipping over $35 (ha, wait till you read what I wrote below about the BS with my dad earlier today). That’s like, nothing! Plus, there’s an Amazon warehouse literally less than 5 miles from me (I kind of want to get a job there, but there are a lot more cons than pros .. mainly because it’s temporary work (like, through a temp agency) and because it’s warehouse work, so you’re on your feet for like, 8 hours a day), so there’s really NO reason for what I want to take “forever” (more than 3-5 days) to get to me! Oh, plus the fact that I can’t take a real bus there. Instead I’d have to take the “Z-Line“, which ONLY runs from like 5:30-7:30am and 5-6pm!! I’m pretty sure the warehouse is open 24/7; what about 2nd and 3rd shift? Blah, oh well. SOOO many people work there, so if [god willing] I do get a job there one day, I’m sure I’ll be able to find someone to carpool everyday with.

I still need to pick a couple books that i can either get at B&N (preferably; I’d much rather buy in store than online) or order from Amazon since I have ~$30 to spend since the tablet my dad returned was $100, and the new one I’m getting is only $70. I ended up pinning, bookmarking, ANDD copy and pasting the books I like the best so that they don’t get “lost” in that long ass wish list so I can look into them more before buying them. I want to browse through their Amazon reviews, Google their titles and skim through the results, check out the author and publisher’s websites, and maybe even pick them up at the library (if they even have them)! Actually, scratch that ..  I owe *2* libraries books; the township library, and the state library. The state library is downtown, so I’d have to go up there whenever I go dose, but the township one is basically across the street from my dad’s work, so I really just have to ask my dad to drop them off for me .. see ladies and gentlemen! THAT’S how lazy I am. So, so sad .. I can’t wait till I’m finally better and happy again =D. Do you have any other bookstores in your area besides B&N? we don’t =/ well not off the top of my head, anyway. we used to have a Borders and B. Dalton. Oh, and Waldenbooks … but no more =(

And now for a random story. Since I’m on Medicaid and don’t have a car (even though that doesn’t matter since they also reimburse gas), Medicaid (and I believe Medicare as well) deals with a private company called Logisticare for all of our medical transportation needs. I HATE Logisticare SOO much for countless reasons, but for today I am going to tell you a [rare] GOOD story about them! So, here we go. Since I’m lazy, I didn’t order my bus pass for January from them until 12/28, even though I’m really supposed to order it in like the 2nd week of the month before because it takes like 10 business days from the date of the phone call to receive it, sometimes even longer. Well, since I’m “mass transit eligible” (I’m mobile [can walk] and have more than 5 appointments a month (~24 to be exact; I dose M-Sa)), instead of getting rides everyday, they just give me a bus pass. But since I’ve been on Medicaid I’ve been having to call and order each month, even though I told my counselor, Kristin, at my methadone clinic, New Horizon Treatment Services (NHTS for short), in Trenton, NJ countless of times to PLEASE put a standing order in for me so I don’t have to call each month and schedule rides that aren’t even coming! But yeah, so when I called on 12/28, I got and wrote down all of my confirmation numbers for rides that weren’t coming anyway because of the mass transit order. Well, on Saturday morning, just for fun, I ended up calling Logisticare and asking a lady where my ride was after giving her my confirmation number. She explained to me [almost] everything that I already knew (nobody was coming and that I’m mass transit eligible), but what I DIDN’T know (hence why I wrote [almost]) was that #1 my bus pass was already on it’s way to me, and that it was mailed on Friday afternoon! She even gave me the tracking number, and I tracked it while I was on the phone with her just to confirm what she said, and she was actually right!! #2 Kristin FINALLY put my standing order in! FUCKING A! I was so excited to hear that! Now I don’t have to call every fricken month and wait on the phone foreverrrr (literally dude; sometimes I’m on hold for over like, 45 minutes! just so i can order my stupid pass)!! But yeah, that was seriously the best phone convo I’ve had with Logisticare since I’ve been on Medicaid. Everything I heard was good news, plus the lady was soo nice AND knowledgeable! Seriously, most of the people I’ve talked to are stupid and ignorant as fuck! THE END lol.

Ha, I didn’t notice until I was almost done writing this story that I already wrote something about Logisticare yesterday .. and now you will read the edited version of that =]

I called log care earlier (as in yesterday (1/3) morning) and they gave me the tracking # to my bus pass. It’s 4:11pm (on 1/3) right now, and I could have swore the mail already came for the day … but who knows? I’m gonna keep tracking because right now it’s 4:13pm and it “departed our USPS facility in TRENTON, NJ 08650 on January 3, 2015 at 1:12 pm. The item is currently in transit to the destination” and that facility is the post office my house’s mail comes from so I am just so confused. but oh well, it’ll def be here by Monday, hopefully before 3pm so I can go to evening IOP .. fuck I just remembered that Mondays are my counseling day, so I have to see Kristin (my counselor) at 1 .. she’ll understand though; we can prob schedule for later. (IT’S NOW 1:10AM ON MONDAY, 1/5, AND I STILL HAVE MORE TO WRITE ABOUT THIS STUPID BUS PASS!! READ MORE BELOW IN A FEW PARAGRAPHS)

Blah it’s 4:16pm (well, it was when I wrote that Saturday afternoon lol) and I’m just trying to make an outline for later/tomorrow when i wake up. i have like no cigarettes and this is just gonna suck (SUNDAY NIGHT/MONDAY MORNING it didn’t suck THAT bad; see above/below).

I also watched MADD YouTube videos, including PRINCESSJOULES (JOULES (pronounced Julie) IS SOO PRETTY FOR A MTF! YEAH THAT’S KINDA MEAN AND SEXIST? BUT WHATEVER. SERIOUSLY, SHE’S THE PRETTIEST I’VE EVER SEEN THOUGH), Daniel, In So Many Words, We Are The Strange (I REALLY want to get my tongue split, but after watching some of her videos, it’s probably a bad idea (it heals wayy too fast)), TheVenomnomnomnom, SevenFabulousTeens (soo corny since it’s bad acting and for tweens, but for some reason I was mildly intrigued lol), and LaToya Forever ( XD XD XD (<– OMG EMOJIS! HOW DID THEY GET THERE?! WELL DUH, BUT YO, HOW CAN I MAKE OTHER ONES?!) I CAN’T EVEN). I did watch a couple art journal videos, but for the most part I just added a whole bunch to my Watch Later and subscribed to madd channels. I think I’ve asked this [wayy too many times], but can you recommend some journaling and art journaling channels, blogs, etc. please and thanks =D?

I really don’t know why I’m so interested in beauty tutorials since i don’t even wear makeup! shit, I don’t even know how to do makeup! I mean duh that’s what the tutorials are for, but still .. that shit’s too expensive. Maybe one day when life is going great and i have a real job making real money (or I’m getting my SSDI check, ha) I’ll be able to buy and wear decent makeup. And lucky for me, my sister is a Stylist at Ulta, so that means a 35% discount! And she’s awesome at makeup too, so if I really wanted to I could ask her to teach me to how to do makeup and stuff. She’s actually really fricken good at it in my opinion; she should really have her own YouTube channel (although I never bother to mention it to her .. knowing her though, she’ll say something about how she doesn’t have enough time, etc.) Can you recommend any channels, blogs, etc. on makeup and beauty?

i can’t think of anything else I did today? (SUN NITE/MON MORN I didn’t =P)

—————————————————————–

It’s 2am, and I haven’t even started writing about today! So much about my 3 hours estimate. Granted, I did spend about a half hour dilly dallying (love that word lol) after I finished writing everything above this point, but blah! Plus I need to go buy smokes (I was able to get some cash from Andrew to buy some, yay!) .. I’m so glad I live in walking distance to a 24 hour store (Quick Chek; it’s a convince store franchise from north jersey). Speaking of 24 hours, “when I grow up” lol I NEED to live within walking distance of a 24 hour convenience store .. 7-Eleven, Wawa (convenience store franchise from eastern Pennsylvania) (did you know?! wawa is “indian” (what kind of indian? pssh, beats me) for goose!), Quick Chek, etc. because just in case I need anything in the middle of the night, etc., it’s right there. And going back to the “when I grow up” thing .. ever since I drove (and been an adult) every place I lived, even without my parents, I was by 24 hour convenience store, yay.

Alright, it’s 2:12am right now. I’m about to walk up to QC, and start on the stuff below.

Okay, I’m back .. it’s now 2:23, and .. 2:23, you may ask? Yes, 2:23. I forgot until I was about to walk out of the door that I had 4 cigarettes in my “permanent” cigarette pack (basically one of those hard, plastic packs you put rollies in) that I rolled at Andrew’s house earlier. So I ended up putting some coffee on, got ready to wash my face but didn’t (I’ll take a shower (or at least wash it then) later on when I finish this since I NEED to), stole my blanket from Cedric (my sister’s majestic half Maine Coone, half regular ole cat, named after the Harry Potter Cedric Diggory), who was laying on it, then sat back down to start typing this .. and now the buzzer is going off saying the coffee is done. But it’s not hot enough yet .. yeah, I’m weird about that. Anyways, random question: what do you think about Keurigs, and why? Personally, I think they’re basically stupid. They’re super expensive, the cartridges are super expensive (and the make your own ones, according to basically everyone, are complete garbage), you can only brew one cup at a time, and the brew settings, in my opinion, come in “sip”, “gulp”, and “taste” .. seriously. I’m SO glad I was able to convince my dad NOT to buy one. Waste of money! If you’re ONLY, ALWAYS going to make one cup, why don’t you just buy one of those coffee pots that only brew a couple cups at a time? Bonus: they’re adorable! K, I think it’s time to pour my coffee =]

—————————————————————–

Okay, so .. about my day. Now, I don’t think this going to be in exact order because I forgot some things while jotting down what I did today, and my lazy butt didn’t put them in the correct spot, so forgive me. Besides, you probably won’t even know, anyway. And hey, I might just put it back in the right spot! I’ll let you know ;D

Well, I officially woke up around 5pm. My dad texted me around 10am about new iPad (I always want to call them that, not tablet .. it’s easier to say, right?), but I kept falling asleep, so what should have been a 5 minute texting convo was actually like, an hour. And one those times, I smoked my last cigarette, which I was specifically saving for when I legit woke up, which was definitely not going to be 10am. But yeah, he was confirming that the link he sent me was indeed the one I wanted, which is Nextbook 7 .Then he asked me about my Amazon wish list .. “You want 176 items from Amazon?” I said “well obviously lol” (duh). He said “too many to browse”. I remember trying to reply to it, but I fell asleep and never did, because my next text to him said “So what do you want me to do with the Amazon” and he told me to narrow it down to like one. ONE?! Nah yo, I have a $30 spending limit .. or so I thought! This fucker spent $10 on “expedited shipping” aka it’ll take “only” one week to get here, as opposed to .. like a week! I’m so pissed, but I’m glad I caught it because I knew he’d say something like “oh, well I spent $10 on the expedited shipping for you, so you’d have it before the weekend! So you only get $20 to spend!” BS! There was free shipping on the product! Who cares if it’d take longer! Besides, shipping like that is usually a scam anyway since you usually get it in less time than it says you would when you buy something online and you just have it shipped in the regular way, am I right? And if that just confused you .. okay, let’s say something says that “standard shipping” (the one that most people get .. the one that made this item from Wal-Mart’s shipping free .. $35 and up at Amazon .. etc.) takes 7-10 business days, 4-6 weeks, etc., to ship. okay, fine .. let’s say you’re waiting 7-10 business day. and you end up getting it after like, 3 regular days .. so you just got it in much less time than you thought! now do you understand? this has happened to me more often than not. how about you? but yeah, so I just complained to my dad that either he cancel the shipping, or he’s gonna have to just let me spend all of the $30 he said I could spend. fuck, man! Oh, and I think I mentioned this already, but if not .. my dad got me a Wal-Mart gift card for Christmas, but for some reason (probably cos I’m an ex junkie) he won’t give it to me; he wants to take me shopping .. whatever. It’s been over 10 days though, and I want to and NEED to go shopping! I barely have any shampoo left, and although my sister has like, 6 different ones in the shower, I like mine! Plus I need razors. And I want to use some of the $ on it (even though I know I won’t have any left, especially after buying razors) on art supplies for my new art journal (and the Wreck This Journal). I’m also waiting on another $25 one that I got from doing a survey for the Kessler Foundation? Something for the State of NJ? CHECK IT .. yes, I know it’s legit. They said it would take about 2 weeks for me to get it, and I took the survey on *looks at phone* well it’s not in my call log anymore (I figured it wouldn’t be anyway), but I definitely know I did it on a Monday, maybeee a Tuesday, so either 12/15-16 or 12/22-23, so it’s been 2 weeks (since it’s technically Monday now).

So after I finally woke up, I had some breakfast (two piece of toast [no more bagels )=] with cream cheese) and coffee. Then I ended up hitting up Andrew because like I said, he lives right down the street, and I know that #1 he just got his check, so he’ll have smokes #2 he has a cigarette rolling machine, so even if he doesn’t have smokes, he’ll have smokes lol. Luckily he told me to come over, and when I got there he gave me a few =] long story short, we chilled, watched the first two episodes of American Horror Story: Coven since we watched the first two seasons together, and I’m watching the 4th season now, and had some DiGiorno pizza. Ha, and when he went downstairs to get the pizza, I literally stole a handful of smokes and put them in my hard pack =X. He’s an alcoholic and of course he was drinking, and he’s also crazy so he takes crazy pills. When he takes his night ones and he’s drunk, he literally starts falling asleep on himself. He ended up taking them around 9-9:30pm? So around 10pm he was basically passed out, so I rolled some smokes for him (and myself, hehe), said goodbye, came home, and started playing on the internet (before I started writing this).

I don’t think I ever mentioned this, but about a month ago I was helping Kev and Earl do illegal things (I won’t get into specifics today, or maybe anytime soon, in case I get myself in trouble). Well, Kev fucked up and got the wrong stuff (makeup), so he was stuck with literally tons of makeup. So yay, free makeup for me! Well, more like free makeup for his girlfriend, and some for me. He gave me this chubby which is basically a lipstick and blush stick (don’t remember the name or brand, and don’t want to get up to look), this concealer/highlighter thing by L’Oreal? Liquid makeup (don’t know the exact kind/name) by either L’Oreal or Revlon, and this BB cream Almay stuff (I say stuff because it technically doesn’t say “bb cream” on it, but I know it’s cover up/foundation/whatever you want to call it) that’s supposed to like, instantly match your skin tone. Well, as stated above, I’m a makeup .. failure. Well today, I finally decided to try the Liquid and BB cream. Well, I really only used the BB cream; the liquid I swatched first, and it was too dark .. luckily, the BB cream was perfect. So I put it on with my hands, and I was kinda disappointed that it didn’t provide full coverage (I figured it wouldn’t), but it evened out my skin toned and just made it look nice without covering up my zits, pores, and “beauty marks” (I hate the word moles; plus they’re small and not raised. I would have said “freckles” since that’s just usually what I say, but). I don’t remember if it covered up my actual freckles, and I’m not getting up to look .. but I don’t think so. Boo. I can’t wait till one day I learn how to do this shit .. I mean when I was younger I still had the freckles, but I didn’t get acne until my 20’s, and the big pores are a result from picking at my acne when I was getting high. Seriously, if you look at pictures of me from before I was getting high, compared to when I was getting high till now .. oh man. Luckily, my acne has finally gone away, and I barely have a routine .. I wash with Pan Oxyl, 10%, and then put on an Rx of Benzyol Peroxide 5% .. that’s it. I do the Rx EVERYDAY, at least once a day .. unfortunately, I don’t wash everyday, blah yes I’m gross. I would show you pix, but #1 I don’t have terrible ones cos ya know, you wouldn’t post, or even take pix with gigantic zits all over #2 the PC is going SOO slow since I have a few tabs open, so it’d take me a while to browse through FB. So yeah, when I my sister came home, I asked for opinion on everything I had (except the chubby). She said the liquid will expire before the summer (when I have a nice tan and it’ll be good), so boo for that. And the BB cream looks good. She also told me that she learned most of her makeup skills from YouTube, ah! She went to and graduated from Paul Mitchell, so for some reason I always assumed she took like extra classes in makeup or something lol.

—————————————————————–

Okay, I’m done writing about my day, yay! And it’s “only” 3:44am, ha! Now, on to randomness that I thought of while working on this entry…

Random thought: does the hour 3-4am freak you out, especially waking up at this time? How about 3:33 and waking up then? GAH, it does me!

OMG I have followers! Don Charisma, Fiction Limbo, and Alice .. SUP Y’ALL?! Why aren’t you guys chatting with me and answering my questions! it makes me sad =( lol, it’s partially my fault though since I haven’t read much of your stuff as well. And @thoughtsfromalice, I think you only have a couple of posts, am I right?

I barely listen to music anymore! Since I don’t drive (or hang out with anyone [with a car]), I don’t even listen to the radio. Literally, the only music I listen to is my sad Spotify playlist with 239 songs that are all at least a year old! I wouldddd link you to it, but I don’t know the URL. Plus, my real name is listed on it. Now, I’m not one of those weird people who are like, freaked out about putting my name on the internet, because I really don’t care. And my Facebook has my real name. I just like using the name The Nameless Wonder as my online persona. You might know my name one day, and if you really wanna do some research you’ll find it, but until then .. la la la. Oh, I did find this, though .. my Spotify user number: 12124279195. Maybe by using that and finding my playlist you’ll know my name, but who knows. I don’t even know how you would look me up; I just randomly found it when I clicked my picture in the app for my PC.

Hey, I asked you a couple posts ago about SSDI/SSI. I still haven’t done anything I’ve been meaning to since I posted that; thank you laziness. Should I just get a lawyer for my SSDI? He’ll definitely help me with everything so I don’t have to do anything, haha. I don’t know, yo .. I just want to do that simply so I can have more time to go back to school while still having an income and health insurance. Blah!

Remember what I said above about the USPS’s website says about my bus pass? If you don’t remember, please don’t scroll; I’ll copy and paste it! It says:

Well, when I woke up, and through out the evening and night I kept looking at it (for no reason since it’s Sunday), and even though it’s said this same thing since I looked at the first time, it’s changed from yesterday. It now says “Your item departed our USPS facility in TRENTON, NJ 08650 on January 4, 2015 at 4:09 am. The item is currently in transit to the destination. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later.” And no longer says what it says about 1/3 .. like it totally disappeared! WTF?! I’m especially confused that it says this since doesn’t’ the post office not operate on Sundays? Like, how is it in transit to it’s destination (my house, or NHTS because of the standing order) if it’s Sunday .. well, Monday now? Whatever yo, at least this *HOPEFULLY* means that’s I’ll get it today. Watch, I’m either gonna get a ride to NHTS from my dad, and it’s gonna get delivered to NHTS, and the mail is gonna get there super late, like after 2, which is when I’m supposed to be done there. OR, my dad’s not gonna give me a ride, and it’s gonna come to my house, and the mail is gonna come extra late, like after 3:10-15, so I miss at least the first hour of evening IOP (I can do either or) AND I have to reschedule my weekly with Kristin. If he doesn’t give me a ride, I should try to remember to call Logisticare and find out where the pass is being mailed to since the tracking doesn’t tell me, and then call Kristin and tell here where it’s going to and let her know I might need to reschedule.

I spoke of (and linked you to) my Amazon wish list above. While I mentioned this, I also said something about pinning/bookmarking/etc. them. Well, here’s a list of all of them .. as in, here‘s the link to that board on my Pintrest. Please, tell me .. have you read of any these before? Did you like them, or not? Why or why not? Need opinions, please! Also, like I’ve asked before .. please, recommend!!! I need to know which book (or two) I should get besides Wreck This Journal and Wreck This Journal Everywhere! If you could only choose between Wreck This Journal and Wreck This Journal Everywhere, which would you choose? Or maybe you could at least tell me what kind of supplies I should get for my art journal, or Wreck This? Anything! Please! Also, have you ever heard of the Kokology games/books? What do you think of them? While I was browsing around Amazon adding everything in site to my wish list, I stumbled across these books, and they sounded really fun, so I wrote down the name “Kokology” and added them to my wish list. I finally just Googled the term, found that website, and played the strawberry game. After playing, I was reading the answers and was like “ooooooooooohhh, yeahhhhhh, I remember this game” Except it was about strawberries, it was about crossing a body of water, finding a cup, coming up to a house, etc. .. do you remember now? Ah well, if you go to the site and play the strawberry game, if you ever did the one I’m talking about, you’d remember. IF YOU’RE GOING TO LOOK INTO ONLY THING I TALK ABOUT IN THIS ENTIRE POST, I HIGHLY SUGGEST LOOKING INTO KOKOLOGY, K?

If I end up getting the motivation to actually take a shower instead of just washing my face, I’m gonna ask my dad to give me a ride to NHTS (you read it above .. my methadone clinic. This is what I’m going to call it from now on .. that, or New Horz) when he gets home (he stays at his girlfriend’s house like, every night, and then comes home in the morning to shower and get ready). Hopefully he says, especially because I just need him to drop me off instead of wait for me because I’m going to stay for IOP instead of just dose. But I’m going to need $1.50 to get home since I won’t have my bus pass.

Well, it’s now 4:21am, and I’m not even done yet! Well, I am .. it’s just that I have one thing left to do, and that’s give a shout out to my followers and likers above, where I wrote “OMG I have followers!” But first, I finished all of my cigarettes. And it’s after 3am. So now I’ll walk up to QC and get smokes. When I come back, I’ll finish up writing, then I’ll edit and FINALLY publish. THEN I CAN DO DAY 4 AND 5 OF MY CHALLENGE! MAYBE. DEPENDS ON IF MY DAD CAME HOME LOL .. HE USUALLY COMES HOME SOMETIMES BEFORE 8:15, BUT USUALLY AROUND 7:30. WHY AM I WRITING AND CAPS? AND WHY AM I HEARING WEIRD NOISES? UGH I AM SO FREAKED OUT RIGHT NOW TO GO OUTSIDE. FUCK IT IMMA JUST STOP WRITING HERE AND TAKE A LITTLE NAP, FUCK THIS I AM FREAKED OUT. CEDRIC WHERE ARE YOU! YOU’LL SCARE EM! THERE HE IS, HIDING ON THE COUCH UNDERISH THE BLANKET I GAVE HIM SINCE I STOLE MINE FROM HIM ❤

LOL, 4:56; I never went to sleep. It’s the wind. I’m going now, as soon as I download BlueStacks and Show Box (I would have linked you, but I was right; it was a virus .. it’s officially been taken off the internet). BlueStacks is and Android app emulator and Show Box is an Android App that lets me watch movies and TV shows online for free, cool beanz! Andrew introduced me to it earlier; he was telling me some guy at Radio Shack (ha) told him about it .. he said he’s been using it to watch stuff when he can’t find something on Netflix. Alrighty, BlueStacks is done, so now I’m gonna start download Show Box so when I get back from QC it’ll be done. UGH THIS WIND, so creeped out. 5AM EXACTLY! PS – Haven’t gone yet; think that Show Box thing was a virus. Oh well, virus protection on here! Guess I’ll just have to wait to get Andrew’s Netflix info so I can finish watching Coven. Speaking of login info .. I still have this girl Becky’s (from my old halfway house when I went down to FL last year for the whole “recovery” BS) login info. Hmm, let’s see .. it worked, yay! too bad I can’t watch RIGHT NOW since I need to go to QC, edit this, post it, POSSIBLY do my challenge, and then do my first! Blogging 101 lesson: All About Me! Which is good, because I’ve been wanting to do that =] But yeah, that’s why I said POSSIBLY do my challenge, cos I can always do that later. I’m on a time limit with my lesson. And when I go to IOP (if my dad takes me; if not, I’ll be sleeping .. well maybe. We’ll see) I can continue to write my lesson, and if I already finished it, I’ll just work on my challenge! Alright; 5:12. Let’s time me! OMFG THIS WIND IS CREEPING ME OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m back, and it’s 5:38! So that took 26 minutes .. not bad. I figured it’d be about that much. I went out in basketball shorts and my sister’s nice, warm Calvin Klein coat, and surprisingly, it wasn’t that bad! I REALLY wanted to finish this when i got back, but Cedric just hopped on me and started nipping at me. I fricken hates that he does it, but I know he’s just doing it to show me love. But it still hurts and it’s annoying and I want to get him to stop ahh! I’ve tried spraying water, hissing at him, and pulling his whiskers and ear, but nothing! FUCKKKKKKKK lol. So maybe I can just cuddle on the couch with him for a little. Or type with one hand while i hold his mouth closed, ha. I can always just edit until it gets really annoying cos I can always keep saving! okay, let’s try that… oh, thank god! After like, 3 minutes, he hopped off.

YO, 10 HOURS LATER; I’M DONE. FINALLY. THANK THE LORD. HOLLA IF YOU ACTUALLY READ THE WHOLE THING. HOLLA EVEN IF YOU DIDN’T. HOLLA FO A DOLLA.

FINALLY, I’M OUT. FUCK A CHALLENGE, AND FUCK A LESSON (WELL, FOR NOW). I’M OFF TO NAPPY NAP! BE BACK TONIGHT =] ❤

6576 AMOUNT OF WORDS, INCLUDING ALL OF THE STUFF IN THIS PARAGRAPH. THAT’S 282 MORE THAN I WROTE AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS, WTF! HOW, YO? I SAY YO ALOT, MAYBE THAT’S WHY…

hey guys! soo much to write, soo little space. not really, since i also have alot of space .. but ya know, my “too long” posts thing. i have lots to talk about this post including: how my day went and what i did, the 30 day challenge i chose, this blog, EMOJIS, and more!

first up: my day. like i said in my last post, i woke up at 2:30pm today (well, technically yesterday since it’s 12:08am 1/3 now). i started out by opening all of the windows and “baking” vanilla (see below) because i knew my dad would be home from work in a few hours, and i smoked [cigarettes] SOO much in the house even though i’m not supposed to =X then i had some coffee, chilled out, then ate a couple bagels with cream cheese (yo, plain thomas bagel things are the fricken bomb! especially when you toast them and spread on a nice layer of whipped cream cheese .. heaven!!). fun fact: never liked cream cheese until a few years ago when a dumbass at dunkin donuts put cream cheese on my bagel instead of butter .. i said fuck it and ate it and  i was literally in heaven. bagels with cream cheese are now officially my favorite food; take note =] i did some blog stuff like researching and reading .. then a little after 5 when my dad was on his way home from work he texted me telling me to pack up the tablet he got me for xmas so he can go return it. oh, and i also asked him for a few bucks to catch the bus to get my methadone tomorrow/today since my lazy, unmotivated ass didn’t call logisticare (medical transportation company for people on medicaid) for my bus pass until 12/28 when i was supposed to call them like AT LEAST 3 weeks in advance .. oops. but yeah, i’ve basically just been sitting here at the PC for the past like +7-8 hours playing on youtube (check out my channel!) and subscribing to like, everything. then i finally got around to writing, editing, and posting the previous post. i also browsed for some themes, and damn! making a nice “layout” is easier said that done! actually, scratch that .. all of it is hard as shit! can’t i just have something nice and plain for now that’s easily customizable? hmm, what else about my day? ha! yo, i literally took the world’s longest crap today, seriously. i wish i took a picture .. i actually contemplated it, too. it was AT LEAST a foot long. okay, that’s enough on that .. i signed up for this blogging 101 online class thing by the daily post. i’m really excited for it to be honest; i’m really hoping it’ll help me in becoming the journal blogger person girl yeah i want to become =] until then, [i’m pretty sure i’ve asked this before] do y’all have any tips/advice/sites you can link me to/etc. for me, based on what you have read so far?? 

oh, i almost forgot .. baking vanilla you may ask? Well i’m sure you’ve read somewhere on the internet that if you put a couple of capfuls of vanilla into a coffee cup and put it into the oven for an hour on 300° your house will smell delicious .. unfortunaly, it didn’t work the way i thought it would .. but it did get rid of the smell obviously since my dad said it smelt delicious when he got home and thought i was baking =] so yay for that.

and i’m sure you want to know why i want to return my tablet .. well i specifically asked for a certain android for xmas .. i knew he probably wouldn’t get it for me due to the fact that this particular one was only on sale from like 5-9pm on thanksgiving at toys r us, so i didn’t expect him to go to toys r us on thanksgiving. but it was a decent android SUPER on sale, so yeah. well he ended up getting me the shittiest windows tablet ever for STUPID reasons. so he is returning it and getting me an equally shitty android .. but whatever because android > windows .. well in this case lol. he got me the nextbook 8.1, and i’m getting the nextbook 7 //shrug oh well. i’ll still use his PC for most things (like this), but it’s nice to be able to bring outside to smoke or when i’m soo lazy on the couch. but yeah .. luckily it only took me like 10 minutes to get everything off the tablet (pix, docs, passwords, etc.) and get it all packed up. to be honest, i was gonna keep the sd card that came with it, but i couldn’t get the sticker to come off without it leaving sticker on the package. so i decided to be nice and put the card back in the box. besides, what would happen if the employee was actually smart enough to look in the box for the SD card just to tell my dad “no, can’t return it” .. that wouldn’t be the worst thing though since i would have had it, but oh well.

after submitting my last post, i realized that highlighting my questions for y’all in pink was pretty obnoxious .. and although it’s pretty helpful, it doesn’t match at all. from here on out, i’ll use a better color. i couldn’t find a better color to match the current layout, so i’m just going to bold the questions for the time being.

so, i decided i’m going to do the ~5 YEAR CHALLENGE~ according to april of cup of delight. She actually got the idea from tami taylor of debbiehodge.com. now their versions are for actual journals, but whatever! when i get around to starting my art journal, i’ll find different prompts =]. just by looking at january, i know this is going to be fun .. some questions are pretty thought provoking, while others are pretty ordinary and boring. ah well! check out my next post for my first three days =] i think i might also do a drawing and/or photography one, but the keyword is THINK. and i don’t have to start right now! i really need to get myself up and running before i overwhelm myself. until then, just my daily “dear diary” and my 5 year challenge, deal? deal. oh yeah, speaking of drawing challenges .. i found the cutest responses to a drawing challenge by a girl who calls herself wedgie; check them out here! i was also thinking of doing like a half and half drawing/photo challenge by maybe going through deviant art and finding something. that’s a really awesome idea, don’t cha think? #1 i can’t draw for shit, and #2 that would be a challenge in itself trying to find the a picture i like best for each day. yeah, i’m gonna do it!!

some questions for you guys: #1 what do y’all think of my about me page? anything i should add/delete/etc? i’m actually kind of surprised i came up with all of that on my own; usually i absoluty SUCK at writing bios about myself.  #2 have you ever heard of the happiness project by gretchen rubin?? can you tell me more about it? did you try it? did it work for you? i’m kind of intrigued, but it seems pretty complicated. i definitely deserve to be happy, but i don’t even know where to start .. i have NOTHING going on in my life right now, but so much at the same time *sigh*. #3 how do y’all feel about me typing in all lowercase instead of correctly? how about when i use apostrophes as quotes like ‘blah blah’ instead of “blah blah”? to be honest, it’s just alot easier to type ‘ than ” .. yeah, i’m really that lazy =/ #4 when it comes to writing prompts, x day challenges, and the link .. what are your favorite websites for these topics, and why? how about actual therapeutic journaling? 

EMOJIS!! as you’ve noticed, i found an emoji plugin for wordpress, so i downloaded and added it to my visual editor =] i’m so excited, and there are soo many! these are my favorites ~~> PSSH! looks likes i can’t use plugins on the .com version. I was dumb and made this post before I installed the emojis I downloaded on wordpress.ORG .. blah blah blah. UNLESS .. there IS an admin panel on .com, and I just can’t find it? help? 

god, i’m soo overwhelmed on things i want to write and talk about with you guys .. but i just wanted a short and sweet post. when i have more time i’ll do a random post .. i still have to a do a decent “about me” post in which i tell you about what’s going on in my life and how i got here and all that “fun” stuff anddd i need to do an “about these people” post in which i tell you about the people in my life that i’ll talk about in my life.

i’ll do a few more paragraphs .. i’m 27 (11/13/87 is my birthday =]), how old are you? i’m telling you my age because i want to know: do anyone of you remember AOL zines? how about those corny little websites we used to make on like geocities, angelfire, but not expage (lol)? i don’t even really remember what they were called if they even had a real name. i had a couple, they were all lame. it was a privilege if you had a domain name. and i can’t remember ANY popular site. then we had guilds? and the quilting bee? i can’t find SHIT anymore. i remember funkychickens.com; surprisingly they’re still online! they were my main source for learning html .. i wonder if i browse through there if i’ll find any of the popular sites .. lol on their main page it says something about expage.com! so i typed expage.com in my browser and they don’t exist anymore, ha! but yeah, i can’t find any popular sites .. ah well. do you know if any are still up [and running]? 

as you may have [but probably haven’t] read on my first post, i talked about coming up with my blog’s name, but not what i actually settled with. obviously, i came up Thoughts Gone Awry since Thoughts Gone Astray was unfortunately taken .. by someone who only wrote like 2 posts years ago! i was kinda pissed! but oh well. i mean, astray definitely sounds better than awry, but they both basically mean the same thing, and that’s what matters. also, i was able to make my username for wordpress blo0dchild, so that’s nice too. do you like it? why/why not? 

one last paragraph .. xmas. what did i get for xmas? i got that tablet and a little protective case for it, a coloring book (wtf why), a variety puzzle book (again, wtf why), some milk duds (finally, wtf why .. my teeth! my poor teeth!), chocolate coin crisp things(<~~~ all from dad), socks, a couple poofs aka shower loofahs (<~~~dad and sister), those aloe sock things (sister), a walmart (dad) and itunes (dad’s gf) gift card, both for $15 (really, only $15? gtfo), and this ugly bracelet that i’ll never wear (dad’s gf). yeah, i didn’t get much, but i’m not complaining .. actually i am as you read, but whatever. i’m grateful =] of course i didn’t wake up until like 2-3pm since my sleep schedule is fucked .. my dad and his gf coming home from her house woke me up. so we all opened gifts, then we went to TGIFridays for dinner and it was yummy =] i got the 2/$15 deal and picked the spinach dip and a medium rare sirloin with mashed taters and mixed veggies =D we were SUPPOSED to drive around and look at the xmas lights after dinner, but my dad’s gf wanted to go home because i hate her so we didn’t go =( i was legit pretty mad but oh well cos playing on the internet was more fun, i guess. plus i didn’t go to sleep until like 6am because i spent all night playing on the new tablet. i slept right through my alarm to go dose (pick up my methadone) which really sucked because they were only open from 7-10am on 12/26 for some stupid reason.

what did YOU get for xmas? what did you do? if you don’t celebrate, what DO you celebrate? does that holiday include exchanging gifts? if so, what did you get? 

alrighty, i’m off to do my challenges ..

YO, someone please tell me how i can merge 2 google plus accounts together? i don’t even know if y’all know what i mean by that, but i have a youtube account and a gmail account and that means 2 g+ pages and although it’s not that big of a deal now, it may be once this and my eventual vlog [hopefully] take off. whatever, i don’t really care anymore.

also, for some reason it wouldn’t let me make a link to grav3yardgirl’s youtube account on my post, so i just had to put her name. wtf wordpress! maybe instead of using the text tab for this post, i’ll use the other tab (i don’t know the exact name for it right now) [[LOOK, I DID IT!! I’M UNDER THE “VISUAL” TAB. THIS IS WHAT I’LL USE FROM NOW ON!]]

but hi, hello, how is the new year going for you?! 2015, whoa. this june, i’ll have known my son’s father for *10* years (but not really .. i’ll explain more about that in a later post). this october, i’ll have been out of high school for 10 years. 5 years ago this september was my first time EVER in new year city, which really kind of sucks because i literally live like an hour away from manhattan, and never been. oddly enough, it was 9/11/10 when i was there, and we didn’t even realize it was 9/11 that day until we noticed that the empire state building was glowing red, white, and blue and it his us. yah, i went up there with a friend vinny (we don’t talk anymore unfortunately), and we went to see his friend’s band play at some pretty large venue .. unfortunately i don’t remember the name of the band OR venue. but i did have fun and i learned that cabs up there are surprisingly cheap! well, compared to cabs in the trenton area, which cost almost $5 just for you to step in it! the only good thing about trenton cabs is that they’re max $10 in city limits, but that’s it .. city limits. i literally live less than a mile from city limits, and it’s like an extra $10 .. luckily i have a bus pass (yay for living on government handouts) so i don’t have to worry about that stuff. speaking of government handouts, i’ve applied for SSDI a few times in the past few years, but i’ve never really followed through. do any of you receive SSDI or SSI? can you give me any advice, tips, stories, etc. BESIDES getting a lawyer? i know i’ll probably have to get one at some point, but still. to be honest, i would rather work, but i have alot of mental health and substance issues i need to work out before i can start working full time, and yeah. that’s another post that’s not for today.

i want to apologize for not writing yesterday. i literally slept for like 28 hours straight .. well not exactly. i went to bed around 10:30am on 1/1, and slept on and off until about 2:30pm today when i was like fml i really need to get up and start writing for my plethora of fans lol .. i was actually pleasantly surprised when i looked at my phone i had a notification stating that 5 people liked my previous post! like super happy! shit, even one would have made my day! so that must mean i’m doing something right, RIGHT?! i kind of wish that i received a comment or two, but i’m not worried about that, because i know at least one person took a moment out of their day to read my thoughts. I LOVE YOU GUYS! IF I REMEMBER, I WILL LINK YOU GUYS TO THIS POST AND GIVE CREDIT WERE CREDIT IS DUE. [[I REMEMBERED!!! THANK YOU orwell1627, suzie81speaks, etwong212, aliceearly, and emmasiv!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!!]]

i don’t know if i mentioned this in my previous post (brb lemme look =]) (i didn’t; k good), but i really thought i was going to spend NYE alone which was kind of depressing because it’s my favorite holiday! but i mentally prepared myself to be alone. well around 8pm, i randomly messaged my friend kev (i’m going to write a post specifically for all of the people i talk about on here and regularly update it, so stay tuned) on FB because even though i was prepared to spend the night alone, i figured he might not be mad at me anymore (we had a fight/thing on xmas eve because i invited him, sabrina (his gf), and earl (a guy who lives with them) and then uninvited them because my dad said no) and we could hang out. so i went to his house and chilled and it was fun. luckily their friend charlie was there and was able to take me home .. so he did around 2? when i came home i started writing this entry, even though you haven’t read ANYTHING of what i wrote that night because it’s all below .. or in a different post entirely! basically what i wrote were #1 ideas to talk about for this post/to research #2 a few paragraphs for this entry #3 links to those 30 day challenge things. speaking of the 30 day challenges .. man, i didn’t even post yesterday! so now i have to wait til next month .. not! i’ll probably start tonight. but like i said, there’s LINKS. i found SO many things on pintrest (see below) that i went pintrest crazy .. literally i was on there for like 3 hours just pinning stuff. and now i have to pick just ONE challenge? NOOOOOOO!! but i think i will just start with one, because obviously i sleep for days and don’t want to promise something i can’t keep.

speaking of sleeping for days and mental illness, i’ve finally admitted to myself that i don’t have “situational” depression and that i have “legit” depression. seriously, i don’t want to get off the couch for anything, and if i had a real bed i’d probably sleep alot longer than i do now. real bed, you ask? well when i moved back into my dad’s house (another post for another day .. it’ll be titled “my current situation” or something along those lines) he told me i can sleep on the world’s most uncomfortable futon .. like it’s too skinny to sleep when it’s in couch mode, and when it’s in mattress mode it’s got two really uncomfortable bars that go in a little t/cross shape that are just so annoying and i literally have like 2 feet between the wall and the bar to sleep in. and it’s not like a regular futon that comes with the couch and you put a big ol futon mattress on top .. it looks like this:

Delancey_Modern_Convertible_Futon_Couch_Sleeper_Black

but yeah, i slept on it for like a week; fuck that. the only time i do sleep in it is when kev stays over because yeah lol. plus it’s much less uncomfortable then. so i sleep on my couch which is pretty fucking awesome because it reclines to almost 180°. ha! i can’t believe i still remember ALT+0176 .. it was the one i used the most. but yeah, all i really do is sleep. i have no motivation to do ANYTHING. it’s even a struggle to pick up my methadone (another day post) everyday. speaking of methadone, the other night i was asking kev, earl, and charlie for their input and suggestions for the name of this blog. earl kept telling me to use junkie related words, and i had to keep explaining to him that i want this blog to be pg13ish .. like i want everyone to be able to read this .. well not everyone? i don’t know, i want to have fans of all different ages. plus, if my blog was called “heroin chic” (pronounced sheek, not chick!! i hate when people pronounce chic wrong!!) or “#junkielife”, it probably wouldn’t be appropriate for people under 18 JUST BECAUSE of the name. besides, with the name like a that, (hey, do you guys think i use commas way too much? let me know! i need to learn how to use commas more appropriately, don’t i?), you would assume that all i’d be talking about is getting high and stuff, right? and that’s not what i want my blog to be about. besides, i barely get high anymore (methadone, god’s greatest gift to the junkies =]), so it’d be pointless anyway. so yeah, “no motivation to do anything” .. like i go to PHP (stands for “partial hospitalization” .. it’s basically like IOP (intensive out patient), except it’s longer each day and you’re there more often each week) at my methadone clinic, but it sucks because #1 most of the people there are for drug court/there involuntary, so it’s usually them just bitching about how their supposed to be there instead of talking about the topic of the group, which #2 there really isn’t even one anyway, which really sucks because they do have a few process groups each week, but most of the time each groups turns out to be a process group! ugh, so annoying. i’m on medicaid, so it’s really hard to find someone i can have MENTAL HEALTH ONLY 1 on 1 counseling with .. i’m on a waiting list in SO many places. it’s also really hard to find a PHP/IOP place .. once again, waiting lists. ugh! so i want to focus on mental health and substance abuse issues before i go back to work. also, back in october i filed a financial appeal with my local community college .. long story short (maybe a longer story another day) back in 2008 i lost my financial aid because i kept fucking up in school, and they wouldn’t reinstate until #1 i pay out of pocket for one semester or #2 i submit an appeal. unfortunately they denied the appeal and it made me even more unmotivated because i REALLY NEED to go back .. i have legit plans! i want to go community college and get my associates in communications, then transfer to rutgers and get my bachelors in communication with a specialization in health and wellness and relationships and families (whoa, alot of “ands” lol). then possibly get my masters in public health, social work, and/or counseling! alot of goals .. ruined because i’m cheap lol. i COULD go to a different community college or try TESC (thomas edison state college; an online school for adults .. much more legit [and cheaper!] than u of phoenix, etc.), get my associates, then go to rutgers .. but we’ll see. blah, and if i go back to work full time, i’ll lose my methadone grant and my medicaid. plus i won’t be able to go to PHP anymore. i COULD work part time, but #1 it’s SO hard to find a part time job in an office for a temp agency (where i’d like to work). i wouldn’t mind working in retail for like 15-20 hours a week since most stores pay SHIT but #2 99.999999% of stores are hiring right now since the season is over. #3 i am too clumsy and i can’t multitask for shit, so working in a restaurant (well, at least as a server) is out of the question, and i almost refuse to work in fast food .. NOT because “i’m better than that”, but because i have adult acne which is FINALLY under control (yay for 10% benzoyl peroxide products!), and working around grease would be a big no no!. wow, this paragraph is terribly long, and this post is already “too long” and i’m not even done yet!! ahh!!

well, i’m almost done. unfortunately i’m not gonna post most of what i wanted to that i wrote in my ideas section at the top of this notepad file .. notepad is my favorite; i don’t care. i’m sure once i really get this blog up and running i’ll start writing my actual posts in word, but until then notepad is fine. oh, and i say word because i’m just going to copy and paste .. but as you can see this post has no capitalization in it what so ever. and writing in word will make it easier to write properly. i have no worries about spell check because my browser comes with spell check so i just spell check my posts before i post them! yeah, i have no idea why i write in lower case only .. it’s just my style, i guess. DEAL WITH IT! lol .. well here ya go: the following paragraphs are what i wrote on NYE after i came home from kev’s, but never posted until now. stuff that [[LOOKS LIKE THIS]] are little notes i made NOW, today after re-reading these paragraphs .. does that make sense?

————————————–

well, i think that i’m gonna try to do about 2-3 posts a day .. how does that sound? it depends? yeah, you’re right, i should explain more before you tell me how awesome or lame that sounds. okay, so .. first i want a “normal” journal post, like how my day went and stuff. thoughts and rants/raves. basically, the whole reason why i started my journal blog thing (i should start calling it my jlog, or bournal. biary? lol nah, too close to “binary”. but both sound cute =} lol .. nah, can’t be bournal either, cos that sounds too much like “boring” and i don’t want to be boring! even though i probably am because i just keep going off track with my “too long” posts! ah whatever, journal blog thing it is!) was for “therapeutic” reasons .. hence the name *Th0uGhTs g0nE aWrY* <~~ ha! remember back in the day (like late 90’s – early 00’s) when it was either really cute or really annoying to write like that? [[<~~ WELL OBVIOUSLY I ALREADY DID ALL OF THIS FOR TODAY BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT THIS POST IS]] ANYWAYS! after i post my awry thoughts, i’ll post at least one prompt (you know, like a 30 day challenge thing of that nature). how many is too much? if i could, i’d post like 38349873290 a day lol .. not really. could you recommend any good prompt/30 day challenge/etc. sites i can check out? until then, here’s a link to my pintrest… add me!

thank you pintrest for helping me find the perfect prompts! i actually just made a pintrest a few days ago after many months of “uh, fuck that”, even though i didn’t really know exactly what the site was all about and stuff. now that i know, i kinda know why i didn’t really want to make one .. because it’s basically like a website for your favorite places (or bookmarks as they’re called now)! except you’re sharing them with the world! cool, i guess? to be honest, i only made an account because it was starting to get really annoying every single time i’d go to pintrest.com, because when i did i’d get one of those big ol in screen pop ups telling me to sign up for pintrest.com. WELL, YA GUYS GOT ME .. AND I’M ACTUALLY KINDA HAPPY ABOUT IT! THANKS AGAIN! so, it’s 5:11am, and i’m off to find some good prompts and challenges and stuff that i can use for this month. i’ll write more later this evening after i wake up .. yeah, fuck my sleep schedule. hard. with a pineapple up the virgin butthole of a heterosexual 18 year old boy. okay ewlk, that’s [[REALLY!! OMG]] fucked up .. i want readers of all ages, and although i will curse on here, language like that will be rare, i promise! please, don’t hate me and stop reading forever! i’ll make it up to you, i promise that too =D

YA KNOW WHAT?! after going through pintrest and seeing MADD pins on blogging .. why am i stressing about content for my blog? i mean yeah, i’m doing this #1 for therapeutic reasons #2 for your pleasure (like i said a million times before) .. but as you can see, #1 is first. yes, you are important! but to be honest (and selfish) i come before anyone else. agree? why [not]? i must have literally pinned over 100 things!! [[AS OF TODAY, 1/2/15, I HAVE 8 BOARDS IN WHICH I’VE PINNED 155 THINGS IN TOTAL, I’VE LIKED 14 THINGS, I DON’T HAVE ANY FOLLOWERS (YET! FOLLOW ME! /blo0dchild!), AND I’M FOLLOWING 189 INTERESTS, PINNERS (INCLUDING PEOPLE THAT AUTOMATICALLY CAME FROM MY FB), AND BOARDS]]

————————————–

oh yeah, since i want to make this an interactive blog, i am going to highlight the questions i want you guys to answer in a different color! that way, it’ll be easier for you to go back and find them if you want to be the best person ever and help us out on making my idea come to life =]

ahh, speaking of pintrest .. can you tell me how i can edit my following interests? i’m sure there’s a way, i just can’t find it right now.

also speaking of pintrest .. yo, i’ve found SO many ideas! like, i’m not creative AT all and there are soo many things here i want to do, like start an art journal? and what’s the difference between an art journal, a smash book .. all of those cool things? i want to try everyone! alas, i am broke .. and i all i have are markers and some crayons =/ but that’s better than nothing, right? blah. i’m not artsy at all anyway .. but i’m thinking maybe by starting one, it’ll help me get more artsy. OH, i’m about to get a “wreck this journal” which seems REALLY FUCKING AWESOME, so let’s consider that my first art journal. grav3yardgirl actually introduced me to wreck this journal. and it seemed SO cool that i only watched the first few minutes of her first “wreck this wednesdays” post because i really want to do one, and she mentioned that she did some “research” and stuff and it made her compare to other peoples stuff and i’m glad i didn’t do that because then i’ll want to do what other people did and then it wouldn’t be as unique as it should be! so i stopped watching the video. that’s actually one of the things i’d like to vlog about, and of course name it “wreck this wednesdays” because why not, i’m not copying her too bad, right? besides, it just goes together.

oh, i kind of lied up there when i said “WELL, OBVIOUSLY I ALREADY DID ALL OF THIS FOR TODAY…” because obviously i didn’t! i talked about yesterday and NYE. next post will be on today and stuff. this post is WAYYYY “too long”, don’t you agree? seriously, tell me .. is this post too too “too long”? if you actually read this far (bless your kind, kind soul <3) .. tell me, what is “too long” for you? can you tell me what i can do to make my posts shorter, more fun, more entertaining, etc? I NEED YOUR HELP GUYS! i know most of y’all have alot more experience than me, and it would be greatly appreciated if you can help me become as successful as you are .. that’s all i really want in life [right now].

okay, i think that’s all i have to say for right now. i’m gonna come up with a title, paste this into wordpress, do a little editing, post it, then start on my post that has to do with this! until next time y’all…

PS – do i use wayy too many tags? i don’t know if i’m doing it more for you, me, or both equally. hmm..
