Sunday Confessions 9-27-15

The United States of Becky

I confess: I'm over it. By "it," I mean everything. Remember back when I thought I had everything sorted out with the job and the apartment? Yeah, no. Everything is all chaos again. I wasn't able to stay at my job because of panic and our lease ends October 31st and we once again have no idea where we're going to be living afterward. (Working on it, but no answers yet.) So, yeah. Here we go again.

I confess: This is how I feel/how I wish I could react whenever I talk to anyone I live with right now, because the topics are always the same - complaining about the other people in the apartment.

I just freaking love Batman's facial expression here. It pretty much sums it all up.

I confess: I went to church this morning for the first time in a long time and ended up spending the worship songs part at the beginning like this:

 But once the music stopped and the service/message part started, I spent the whole time like this:

What do you have to confess?

Sunday Confessions 9-20-15

The United States of Becky

I confess: Sometimes I feel inferior to fictional characters. Silly, I know. But true.

I confess: I had cookies for breakfast yesterday. (Which, if you follow me on instagram, you may already know.) 

I confess: I've never seen Re-Animator. I know! Shame! I'm such a huge fan of horror movies and zombie films in particular. It's on the list. I just...haven't gotten around to it yet.

I confess: I will not be decorating for Halloween this year. We will be moving sometime around the end of October/beginning of November, so the whole production is rather pointless this year.

I confess: My anxiety and panic attacks are not nearly as under control as I thought. 

I confess: I bought an adapter for my wii u gamepad (Super Mario Maker is addictive!) - from amazon and it doesn't work AT ALL. Zilch. Nothing. Doesn't charge the thing, doesn't keep it charged when plugged in, nothing. So I am doing the whole replacement/exchange thing and really it's not that big of a deal, but I'm super annoyed about it anyway.

#HashtagHumpday: Misanthropy

#Hashtaghumpday @ Life with Lolo

- I have finally accepted that I'm a bit Wednesday Addams. Not full-on Wednesday Addams. About half. I still do get sucked into singing along with The Little Mermaid, after all. But I'm definitely not about Cinderella and I certainly don't love pink. #ExceptOnElleWoods #ALittleBitWednesday 

- At this point in life, I'd rather stay inside with the curtains drawn and the air conditioning on while I internet/netflix/read - do anything besides sweating my ass off in the sun. #TheBeachIsTooMuchTrouble #AllTheNetflix #WhyPutOnABraAndGoOutsideIfYouDon'tHaveTo

- When I googled images of Wednesday Addams, I ended up stumbling onto a fair amount of "Sexy Wednesday Addams" costumes and I want to vomit on them and light them on fire. First, because Wednesday Addams is generally recognized as a young girl and secondly, because I have a difficult time believing the actual Wednesday Addams would approve. Even if she grew up to be all sexy and sensual like Morticia, my hypothesis is that she wouldn't do it in a mini skirt and thigh-highs. Just sayin'. #HeresTheMisanthropeInMe #WednesdayAddamsIsNotAboutSex #AntiSexifyingEverythingForHalloweenCostumes #ImagineASexyPugsleyAddamsCostumeOnAGuy

Sunday Confessions 9-13-15

The United States of Becky

I confess: The song above is my jam today.

I confess: I am kind of writing this post on the fly while my hair dries before heading to work.

I confess: My first whole week back at work was kind of a spectacle. I missed two days from panic attacks and then there was a whole mix-up with my schedule for two days after that, so I ended up missing four days. Ouch! Luckily I got it straightened out with my supervisor and by the end of today, all should be officially sorted. But I still feel like the world's biggest schmuck.

I confess: As I've said before, I've been watching a lot of Once Upon a Time and so it was only a matter of time before I ended up having sexy dreams about Rumpelstiltskin. 

What are you guys feeling the need to confess this week?

#Hashtag Humpday - Random Things

#Hashtaghumpday @ Life with Lolo

Today I'm joining a link-up hosted in part by a blog I follow, Life With Lolo. I've meant to join this link-up for approximately 2000 years and today is the first time I'm getting around to it. 

 - Every time I try to install one of those apps that is supposed to clean up and speed up your phone, THAT'S when my phone suddenly starts slowing down with the constant notifications and bullshit. #stupidphone #stupidapps #justworkalready

- I stopped watching New Girl ages ago. Halfway through season 2, I kept thinking "I do not give a single fuck about Jess and Nick has not shown a single ounce of character growth." The only reason I kept watching as long as I did was Schmidt. That is why I can get behind this link-up, because I love Schmidt. Every other character on that show can fall off the face of the earth. #bitchy #schmidt 

- I've been watching a TON of netflix. I am going through a super netflix phase. Returning to work has drained me physically and there has been more drama than I care for at home, so I have pretty much turned to netflix to escape and tune the world out right now. I'm watching #OnceUponATime, #GilmoreGirls and #AwesomelyBadHorrorMovies

- Finally, I cannot wait for Autumn! All things Autumn! #ScaryMovies #lattes #cardigans #coolerweather #Halloween #pumpkinspiceeverything

Sunday Confessions 9-6-15

The United States of Becky

I confess: I am actually considering buying a nightgown. Well, a nightshirt/nightgown hybrid. I am NOT that girl. But. It is purple and has a print of black cats dressed up in 3 different Halloween costumes: pumpkin, witch, and mummy. So yeah. I'm tempted. Because Halloween & cats.

I confess: Returning to work has kicked my ass. Or, more accurately, my feet. My feet and legs are sore as hell now that I'm back to standing behind a register for 8 hours a day. Suddenly every day is leg day.

I confess: There are currently no less than four empty boxes of various sizes and two large paper bags on my living room floor - all because we like to indulge our cats.

Life Right Now

I know I missed Sunday Confessions and I know I haven't been on in several days, maybe about a week. I know there is at least one email in my inbox that I have yet to read (Heather).

So here's what's what.
At about 2:30 Sunday morning (Saturday into Sunday) my mother-in-law was taken to the hospital in an ambulance due to having a massive heart attack. Her heart isn't exactly healthy in the first place. The cardiologist didn't think she was going to survive.
Well, she did, and she should be going home in a day or so.
But it was a rough several days, and that is a big part of why I haven't been online.

The second reason is that I done got a job. That's right - I'm back to working. So between one thing and another, it has been a crazy week.

Allow me to say: I am SO over the humidity, and I have no idea why my Joey shrugging gif is suddenly broken.

The other thing has been that we have been apartment hunting and there was one that we particularly wanted. Well, also this week we got our final approval on that and met with the agent person to find out what our deposit amounts are going to be. We were kind of in limbo there for a while and it was super annoying. Also with the job thing. I was afraid to talk about either in case of jinx. But things are good right now. We move to our new apartment in mid-November - tentatively on the 11th. (I will definitely cover that when the time comes.)

In the meantime, things are settling down for now and I can't wait to get caught up with everything.
