1.) What would I look like as a blonde? I’ve never dyed my hair before, and I really wouldn’t want to bleach it blonde, but I’ve always wondered how weird I would look if I suddenly went from having dark brown hair to such a light color.
2.) Do you remember when video game consoles used to take years to come out? There was at least 5 or so years in between the Playstation 1 and PS2. The PS3 also took quite a few years, but the fourth one? Less time. Technology is being made so fast, who can afford to really keep up? Everything becomes obsolete so fast it feels, it really does suck. Even my phone, the IPhone 6s, is on it’s way to being obsolete with all the new phones that have come out already.
3.) What is actually healthier for you to drink: tea or coffee? I always say tea, but coffee also has it’s health benefits – until you add all the cream and sugar (the stuff that makes it taste good).
4.) If I had kept all of my tip money in my savings this year, I wonder how much money I would have had. Add in my bonuses I’ve gotten from my boss, in all honesty, I probably could’ve bought myself a laptop with the money. I’ve made over $50 in two weeks before just in extra tips from people. I don’t have to be tipped. If only I had the luxury to afford to save majority of my money.
5.) Reflecting on this time last year, it really is amazing how much can change in one year. I don’t talk to all of the same people – hell, half of our original staff at my work is gone. It’s crazy how many people have come and go over the months. It’s crazy how people I wanted to be close with went away.
6.) I wonder what would’ve been my path if I hadn’t of met Ray. Would I have kept fucking around? Would I have found someone new? Or would I have just done more stupid things? Whatever the case is, it makes me happy I met him.
7.) My room is in need of a makeover. I keep wanting to find time to put some things back in boxes and set them aside. Why do I have my CD’s out? They’re really just taking up space because I haven’t listened to them in years – I listen to music on my phone now. I also have books – college books to boot – that need put away. I need to figure out how to sell stuff, it’d be easier if I had a car. I have old games I need to sell, even for a few bucks.
8.) How do you really narrow down your wardrobe to the things you need? I feel like I could get rid of some of my clothes, but then I would regret it later when I went to look for it. I know this, because I’ve already done it. Gotten rid of clothes and then looked for it later and regretted getting rid of them. I haven’t worn my professional clothes in over a year, but there may be a time soon when I have to break them out. Right now, though, they’re just hogging up space in my closet. My mom says I have too much stuff. Coats are also taking up room. I’ve tried to emphasize I don’t need to get rid of it, I just need more storage space. Which I do.
9.) I have a set of fleece sheets I haven’t used in years that I need to get rid of. It makes me wonder how people really sleep in them, even in the cold months. It makes me too hot – plus I like layers. If I’m cold, I’d rather add another blanket to the mix, not sleep under those stuffy sheets. I think I’ll donate them.
10.) I don’t want to go to work. I don’t want to go to work. I don’t want to go to work. Can’t I just have a day to just relax and maybe play some video games and de-stress for a while? The holidays shouldn’t be so overwhelming, we’re not even going anywhere. It’s just going to be the three of us again. So why, why does my mother make it such a big deal? Who are we really trying to impress here?
