Wow, it's been a long time..... eh? I think I might write an actual entry...
Lots have changed since....
For starters, the 2 jobs I was working before (DQ & Ground Round)... are both no longer my jobs. I am doing something totally different now. Visit me at Bertucci's if you like... :)
Ground Round closed it's doors 8/17... That was a very sad experience for me... it was the first job I really liked, that I looked forward to going into work. I also made a shit ton of money. But beyond that, I had friendships I will miss... DQ, I had my Dad constantly down my throat about every little thing, and it was just getting old (10 years... shit, even 12 now I think)... it just kinda grew on me. The money was fucking awesome, but it;s really not worth it... My time is more valuable.. in the sense that I hated working 2 jobs... 14 hours a day, fuck that. I will take the minor paycut to have more time to myself to be with ME and my Jonny Mac. And I can actually have a social life again! WOO HOO! I have double the time now, then I used to. Even time to update this old journal. heh. So far I like Bertuccis ... it's alright money, and the people are cool... but it's really not the same environment as Ground Round.... :/ I miss working in the bar, it was the best. Oh well, at least I got to do it for a year..... On the bright side of things I have only been there a month and I am already TOP SERVER. You read that, TOP. heh. I am #1 for sales in alcohol, especially wine, and desserts.. I sell alot of those too. I may not stay #1 forever, but its neat to be it for the time being. The managers even printed out the server reports and highlighted mine!!! It was really cool, hehe. :D So I think over time it just might work.
Besides that, doing alot of "growing up" lately... Like learning more things to cook and always making new things, organizing our fucking closet, totally re-doing my bedroom (new sheets, comforter, pillows, curtains, even fucking vallances... Its like Glam Martha Stewart shit. I have 400 thread eygptian black sheets with a gold satin comforter and black leather pillows. heh. I will take a pic sometime, maybe... but its really cute. We also got a lot of new plants, and it looks exotic to me, I really like having plants. We also got alot of new art to put on the wall, and moved all the posters to different parts of the house. Jon got me this huge 3 foot Gone with the Wind framed photo... its my favorite movie... It means alot to me. Its so cute!! I also love the fact that at work, ALL my tattoos (except for my hands) are covered... people treat me with so much more respect... I am always sort of waiting for customers to give me an attitude, but nope! Maybe its the fancy mafia music, or the fabulous fountain outside and the cute little duck pond... but people are in much better moods at Bertuccis than Ground Round or DQ. Anyone who has seen my apartment before, should see it now. Totally re-done. :) We have been spending our days off at Home Goods stores redecorating.... (dont worry, Jon is still a bad ass) :) But we have been really happy lately......
Which leads me to... our 2 year Anniversary is coming up, and we had plans to go to Amsterdam and Italy, but instead changed our mind to DISNEYWORLD. I know that sounds nuts... but it is alot cheaper, and we will get to visit his brother in DC cuz we are driving down! I have always wanted to do a road trip, so I am totally psyched!!! We have reservations at a fancy 4 star hotel in Orlando
... and already bought our tickets for the park. I cant wait to go on all the fun rides!!! :D We are taking almost 2 weeks off work to do it, I cant wait. It will be great to have even more time off, we deserve it!!!!
Also for the first time in god knows how long I have ALL ONE COLOR HAIR. It's back to my all time favorite... my signature blue black :) Hell yeah.... I finally feel more "Xine" then ever... hehe. I remember the first time I dyed it when I was 14... I did it because it was "Halloween Day" at school, and I was going to be Zim Zum from Manson... so I convinced my Mom to let me dye it black cuz I told her blond just wouldnt work. So she said I could... then hated it, now she loves it. I think it grew on everyone. I think I really was made to have black hair... it just works. If anyone still cares anymore here are some recent pics..... OH, also I got glasses recently... as a back up for contacts.... but I made sure to get really hot Gucci frames..... here are some photos! -
thats my new work uniform!
That is the most recent... taken just a few hours ago. I like this picture because it shows I can finally say I dont feel or look fat in this picture... I really like it. I am the smallest I have ever been since like 8th grade, probably even before that. I am 125! I cant believe it... but looking at this picture kinda makes it set in. heh. YAY. I like looking better, it just feels better too.
Man, this is probably a really cheesy update but I guess I dont really give a shit. Im happy, why not just be happy? :)
Im all about being happy, and bettering myself ... it goes a long way.....and I have a long way to go.
I think I am going to start a business soon....
Well, time to go poke around on the internet some more...
