Ive officially been in West Virginia for two weeks now. During these two weeks I’ve learned that
-the bf forgets to put the toilet seat down more often than not (Im gonna put a post it over it reminding him)
-Even though not technically in the south, West Virginians are a lot like southerners. They always are very polite and make conversation any chance they get
-grocery stores here have beer, wine, and hard liquor!
-my Xbox is for streaming netflix first, and then gaming-I’ve watched SOOOO many movies and finished Generation Kill and finally picked up where I left off in The L Word! I’m starting season 4 tomorrow
-My hate for FPS’s (first person shooters like halo, left 4 dead, call of duty, etc.) has disappeared!
-a banana split from The Poky Dot (a little diner here) is NOT for one person. It’s not even for 2 people! The bf and I ordered a banana split and received this!
we couldn’t finish it
-aaaaaand that i need a job!
I’ve actually applied at a couple of places. I’ve received the “we got your application and will get back to you soon” replies. Hopefully, someone will get back to me soon. Until then I’ll enjoy my freedom and apply for other jobs. 😛
(and yes, I changed my blog theme again! I’m always on the search for a theme that feels like home! Let’s see how long this lasts.)
I love making plans ,but when I do I usually ended up not following through with them oooor remixing them and doing something completely different than what I was meant to do (need to work on this!). Which means, even though the boyface and I went to Pittsburgh we didn’t do everything that I planned. I planned on going to the Phipps Conservatory, but the morning of I changed my mind and decided I’d rather visit the Carnegie Museum of Art! Good choice, if I must say so myself.
We spent a couple of hours exploring the halls of architecture, pop art, photography, and sculpture. I was thrilled when I stumbled into a small room filled with some of Kara Walker’s work! Something that I’ve come to love since I discovered her about a year ago. We also had free entry to the Museum of Natural history, but were both too hungry to go on for a couple of hours. Which brings me to the next plan I screwed up. we were supposed to have a nice dinner at some cutesy sit-down restaurant, but because we were both STARVING! after the museum, we decided to just grab something that was nearby. I picked out 5 Guys Which I had heard of, but have never tried. It was greasy, fattening, not what I had planned, but oh so yummy! After eating, we shopped! That’s something I did stick with! Well, sorta! We went to Ikea and picked up stuff for the apartment including cuuute coffee mugs!
We planned on going to H&M but I was way too tired and grumpy to want to go to. I know, I know! Surprised me too! But after sitting in traffic FOREVER, I just wanted to go home. So, we did and on the way we stopped at Target, because even though it isn’t H&M, it still makes me happy. Picked up some stuff there and went home to relax and play video games. Even though not exactly what I planned, it was still a nice day. I liked Pittsburgh. It’s a busy city with a lot going on. I look forward to exploring it more.
In other news, I think I’ve finally cured my insomnia! For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been having trouble sleeping. I found myself going to bed, but waking up 3-4 hours later, and not being able to fall back asleep until the next night. I don’t know how I was functioning on such little sleep, but I was. I finally, after people suggesting it for years, tried Melatonin. It’s a supplement that relaxes you and helps you to fall asleep and natural. Even though it’s natural, I still hope that after a week or so, my schedule will be regulated and I’ll be able to sleep a whole night through without it’s help. We shall see!
