Today…being that I wasn’t planning on doing much, I decided to put my hair up in a tight bun. Now…my hair when left alone, curls, so when I knot it up…my hair curls even more. I let my hair down before bed to brush it out and pull it back into a ponytail. When I pulled the elastic out of my…
Who told you to try to brush that rat nest? Just go shave it off already all Amber Rose about it. lol
Oh, mugrosa…If I shave it…I need tips. How did you get your chest so smoothly shaved?
ask your man girl..he did it for me but said it was easier than when he shaved your ass. He said that was like a suicide mission.
Things to be grateful for as 2010 comes to a close...
Having a best friend that drops everything she is doing to come over and entertain me for 12 hours with shopping, food, gossip and make up, just because I am having a hard day. No questions asked, no judgment, and without hesitation. Just full of love and an amazing sense of understanding. I don’t ever want to know a world without her in it. If soul mates exist, she is mine.
Give ultimatum about him picking up the stuff he has been promising to take for weeks. Consequences: he shows late in the evening when you aren’t prepared to see him, takes very little with him, gives major attitude and reminds you why it didn’t work out. Of course this still ends with you eating a pint of ice cream.
I give him to the 1st or I toss it all, including his prized sketch books. I want to start the new year with a clean slate…he is not allowed in my 2011.
“The only way Obama can continue to praise the #DREAMAct in public while deporting Dreamers behind the scenes is if the press doesn’t put both sides of the story together. I hope that we as pro-migrant activists, organizers, lawyers, and bloggers can make this story heard so Obama feels real pressure from the other side of this issue for once.”—
“You brought humanity and compassion to this office. You reminded us that we are actual people not just machines…You taught me it was ok to care about your coworkers.”—One of the sweetest things anyone has ever said to me. Love you, Nora.
I thought today was going to get better but.....nope.
So I went and did some retail therapy and now I feel guilty for spending money on myself, but not enough to take it back. Drinks with friends and coworkers tonight will hopefully get this day back on track.
Sitting at my desk and realizing I will no longer have a physical presence in this office...
For the last 5 years my job and my place here has defined much of who I am. Outside the office, I am the radical immigration girl that you did not want to argue with. I am the tree-hugging liberal that likes to protest and march and cause trouble. In the office, I am the one that gets called in to make shit happen when others couldn’t. I am the one that kept an extra chair next to my desk so people knew they are welcome to sit and talk to me about anything. I am the loud and cheery coworker that plans the parties, makes fun of the boss to his face, is always ready with a smile and hug and will always lend a hand. I like being the one people can depend on, but I realize that I won’t be completely satisfied by continually allowing others to define who I am or what I am doing. Leaving here was as much a personal decision as it was a professional one.
I guess it is time to redefine myself on my own terms and not in relation to what I mean to others or how they perceive me.
Worst part is finding out that my eyesight worsened. I am already blind as hell so this really sucks. I knew I should have done the surgery this past year. Now I have to wait until it stabilizes for 6 months.
FYI - apparently your eyesight is also affected by stress. I can’t wait until next week when I will be in serious chill mode.
“My skin is brown just like theirs, But now I’m unworthy of the color ‘cause I don’t speak Spanish the way I should then they laugh and talk about mi problema in the language I stumble over. A white person gets encouragement, praise, for weak attempts at a second language. “Maybe he wants to be brown like us.” And that is good. My earnest attempts make me look bad, dumb. “Perhaps, she wanted to be white like THEM” and that is bad”—
