A New Year Leads to a New What…?

December 20, 2009 at 12:21 am (December 2009) (, , , , , )

I usually don’t get into the habit of making New Year’s Resolutions because I claim that I am too young to do such things. However, I thought of a new idea, instead of coming up with new things that I want to/should do over the new year of 2010, I will instead tell you what I plan to NOT do over this year. I find it better that if I can acknowledge the things that I sure as hell am not gonna do, then I will feel more accomplished when I do do the things that I wanted to do. It’s more interesting this way.

1. Be nicer. I am already pretty damn nice to people, so if I go on being any nicer I may seriously become a doormat. No thank you.

2. Skydiving. I really cannot tell you what would be MORE terrifying than free-falling from an airplane that is thousands of meters in the air and not knowing if my parachute will inflate correctly. I took physics. I know what free-falling without a working parachute can do to a person. Again, no thank you.

3. Travel to another country Not because I’m apathetic or pompous. It’s because I lack the time and the money to allow me to take such an adventure and I forsee 2010 as being the same way. However, as soon as these two elements are in abundance (moreso the latter than the former), Au revoir les Etats Unis, et bonjour la France!

4. Go to a spa That is like the utmost anti-girly thing to say. That and I don’t like diamonds. The thing is, I can’t stand massages. They tickle me more than they relax me. And yes, I know that there are a lot of other things a spa can offer other than a personal massage (however, if my masseuse is a hot guy with a chiseled body, then I may think twice…), but none of those things are remotely interesting for me.

5. Get a mani and/or pedi I bite my fingernails and toenails. ‘Nuf said. (I’m kidding about one of those!)

6. Diet Yeah. I said it. God knows I’ll try to but won’t really commit to it, because I lack the will power. I’m definitely not fat/chubby, some may even use the word ‘skinny’ when describing me. I just want to tone up a bit and eat healthier. As a college student I tend to get into these bad habits regarding eating and I want to change some of those. That is something that I WILL do. Maybe eat the rainbow everyday? There’s a start!

7. Spend more than I can afford This seems simple and it should make it onto everyone’s New Year’s Resolution list, but I am so frugal that I am pretty sure this will not happen to me. I am probably one of the cheapest people you’ll find. Huzzah!

8. Get a car *Sigh* this is something that I really wish wasn’t on the list, but I’m afraid that I won’t be getting a car anytime soon. I still do not have a license (at age 20) and thus am pretty certain that there will be no car in my future. There’s no way that this is going to change.*sigh x2*

9. Attend a live taping of the Oprah show I swear her system of getting tickets is rigged. I’ve tried and my mother has tried and the fact that I’m putting this on here means it has yet to work. I’ll keep trying but I am pretty damn sure it’s not gonna work. I think it would be cool to sit in on a taping of the Oprah show and possibly get something? Maybe?

10. Appear on a game show My all-time dream would be to appear on the game show Deal or No Deal. That show takes no talent at all except for a single guess, which is PERFECT for me. It’s free money and I could always make use out of it should I win some. But seeing as how getting onto a game show is next to impossible, I’ve resigned myself to actually working for a living. Darn.

So. There you have it. The 10 things I WILL NOT do during the year 2010. I’m sure there’s so much more, but I’ll truncate it to just 10.

So I guess the purpose of a blog is to voice what I am feeling when I am feeling it, and I’ve been posting pictures in my previous blog posts, so it’s time to change it up a bit, albeit in a depressing manner.

I’m about to find out what it feels like to go to bed alone, and with tears streaming down my face. I hate this.

Have you ever wanted anything so badly that you’re willing to kill to get it, or even kill yourself if you don’t? That’s me right now. At this very moment, on the brink of life and death. Ready to give it all up over a dream that may not come true. I may be exaggerating a bit, but damn did that feel good to say. It definitely did.

As tears well up, I can only say that I don’t know how to handle all of this. I refuse to get into the details of it all because people that I know may be reading this and I refuse the let them into my life if they aren’t already an intimate part of it, but I feel like all I’ve done for the past 2 or so years is fuck up and fuck myself over. It’s a really sucky feeling to have, but it’s the one feeling that hasn’t left my being since my freshman year in college. The really agonizing part is feeling this over and over again and knowing that I’ve journeyed too far to make a viable change in my deplorable situation. The constant depression that washes over me at times like this makes me want to die, as I feel as if my last reserves of oxygen have been stripped from me and I am gasping for what will never again be mine. Ever.

As I question my intentions, and look for alternatives, oftentimes coming up empty-handed, I feel alone. Even though I have people supposedly by my side, it’s inevitable that I always feel alone in all of this. I hate that what I portray outwardly to others isn’t what gets handed back to me in return, I ALWAYS come up short. Always. And god-fucking-dammit it’s frustrating. So frustrating that I want to stop what i feel in anyway that’s the quickest and the most pain-free. That would be true bliss. Floating away from it all….but then I remember….

I kept getting told by people, ‘it will be alright’ or ‘everything will work out’. Fuck that advice. And honestly, fuck those who tell me dismissive shit like that. It’s annoying as hell. Those who say that say that only when they KNOW they’re in a good place in their lives and just feel sympathetic for those who are not. Screw off. I only listen to those who can honestly tell me from experience that things will be okay. Have you lived what I’m feeling right now? No? Jump in a lake. Yes? Hand me a tissue and when I’m ready we’ll talk. A hug isn’t going to make the situation better either, so those who offer a hug in an attempt to make things ‘better’ are fooling themselves more than they are me, so don’t do it.

I try. God knows I try to make this all better, but as the minute and hour hands slip away from my grasp, I panic. When I panic, I only work harder to improve myself, only to repeatedly come up short, once again. Surprise, surprise. I should be used to this by now, but I’m not and I refuse to just settle with what I get, but fuck, I cannot seem to do better for myself.

What am I supposed to do now? I have no one to talk to about this, and the people who think they can help just need to realize that they can’t do shit for me right now.

Nothing and no one can make me feel better, so if you wouldn’t mind,  just fuck off.

The Weird and the Funny

December 12, 2009 at 7:22 pm (December 2009) (, , , )

It’s been a while, but I’ve been busy with test-taking. Ah, the joys of being an undergraduate student…

Back to the point, I like to inspire thought through photographs, so take a look at the following pictures of some of the weirdest and funniest things I could find.

Which one would you crown “The Weirdest of the Weird” and/or the “Funniest of the Funny”??

What Do Bats, Onions, and Your Tongue Have in Common?

December 5, 2009 at 12:55 pm (December 2009)

So I love when I learn things I didn’t know before. I found these 50 (bet-ya-didn’t-know) facts while perusing the Internet…Enjoy!

1. If you are right handed, you will tend to chew your food on your right side. If you are left handed, you will tend to chew your food on your left side.

2. If you stop getting thirsty, you need to drink more water. For when a human body is dehydrated, its thirst mechanism shuts off.

3. Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying.                    

4. Your tongue is germ free only if it is pink. If it is white there is a thin film of bacteria on it.

5. The Mercedes-Benz motto is “Das Beste oder Nichts” meaning “the best or nothing”.

6. The Titanic was the first ship to use the SOS signal.

7. The pupil of the eye expands as much as 45 percent when a person looks at something pleasing.

8. The average person who stops smoking requires one hour less sleep a night.

9. Laughing lowers levels of stress hormones and strengthens the immune system. Six-year-olds laugh an average of 300 times a day. Adults only laugh 15 to 100 times a day.

10. The roar that we hear when we place a seashell next to our ear is not the ocean, but rather the sound of blood surging through the veins in the ear.

11. Dalmatians are born without spots.

12. Bats always turn left when exiting a cave.

13. The ‘v’ in the name of a court case does not stand for ‘versus’, but for ‘and’ (in civil proceedings) or ‘against’ (in criminal proceedings).

14. Men’s shirts have the buttons on the right, but women’s shirts have the buttons on the left.

15. The owl is the only bird to drop its upper eyelid to wink. All other birds raise their lower eyelids.

16. The reason honey is so easy to digest is that it’s already been digested by a bee.

17. Roosters cannot crow if they cannot extend their necks.

18. The color blue has a calming effect. It causes the brain to release calming hormones.

19. Every time you sneeze some of your brain cells die.

20. Your left lung is smaller than your right lung to make room for your heart.

21. The verb “cleave” is the only English word with two synonyms which are antonyms of each other: adhere and separate.

22. When you blush, the lining of your stomach also turns red.

23. When hippos are upset, their sweat turns red.

24. The first Harley Davidson motorcycle was built in 1903, and used a tomato can for a carburetor.

25. The lion that roars in the MGM logo is named Volney.

26. Google is actually the common name for a number with a million zeros.

27. Switching letters is called spoonerism. For example, saying jag of Flapan, instead of flag of Japan.

28. It cost 7 million dollars to build the Titanic and 200 million to make a film about it.

29. The attachment of the human skin to muscles is what causes dimples.

30. There are 1,792 steps to the top of the Eiffel Tower.

31. The sound you hear when you crack your knuckles is actually the sound of nitrogen gas bubbles bursting.

32. Human hair and fingernails continue to grow after death.

33. It takes about 20 seconds for a red blood cell to circle the whole body.

34. The plastic things on the end of shoelaces are called aglets.

35. Most soccer players run 7 miles in a game.

36. The only part of the body that has no blood supply is the cornea in the eye. It takes in oxygen directly from the air.

37. Every day 200 million couples make love, 400,000 babies are born, and 140,000 people die.

38. In most watch advertisements the time displayed on the watch is 10:10 because then the arms frame the brand of the watch (and make it look like it
is smiling).

39. Colgate faced big obstacle marketing toothpaste in Spanish speaking countries. Colgate translates into the command “go hang yourself.”

40. The only 2 animals that can see behind itself without turning its head are the rabbit and the parrot.

41. Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair.                                       

42. The average person laughs 13 times a day.

43. Do you know the names of the three wise monkeys? They are:Mizaru(See no evil), Mikazaru(Hear no evil), and Mazaru(Speak no evil)

44. Women blink nearly twice as much as men.

45. German Shepherds bite humans more than any other breed of dog.

46. Large kangaroos cover more than 30 feet with each jump.

47. Whip makes a cracking sound because its tip moves faster than the speed of sound.

48. Two animal rights protesters were protesting at the cruelty of sending pigs to a slaughterhouse in Bonn. Suddenly the pigs, all two thousand of them, escaped through a broken fence and stampeded, trampling the two hapless protesters to death.

49. If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle; if the horse has one front leg in the air, the person died as a result of wounds received in battle; if the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural cause.

50. The human heart creates enough pressure while pumping to squirt blood 30 feet!!

Merry SeX-mas

December 4, 2009 at 5:21 am (December 2009) (, , , )

Today is December 4.

Far from stating the obvious, today is a day of panic. (Okay, I guess the reason why is a little less obvious…)

Christmas is around the corner and I have no ideas for what to get that special person in my life who has everything you could possibly imagine: the Xbox, the car, and his own place (come to think about it: the perfect ingredients to manhood freedom). I am a girl in her first relationship so the idea of gifting to a significant other is a new concept for me. Ideas, thoughts, and fantasies keep swimming through my head. I have a couple gift ideas, but I cannot help but feel as if the media around me is pushing, rather, shoving me in a particular direction. Having watched the Victoria Secret Fashion show a couple days ago, various commercials, and flipped through magazines, the message seems blindingly clear: the perfect ideas for Christmas presents seems to be those that involve sex.

Alright, alright. We all know that sex sells. That’s why I, as a conscientious consumer, have been inundated with images of threesomes, provocative positions, and scantily-clad boys and girls attempting to make lingerie, intimate oils, and condoms seem like the perfect gift ideas. However, I am very skeptical about their merits as gifts.

Gift Idea #1?

Gift Idea #2?


I refuse to be influenced.

However, this still leaves me without any idea what to get my significant other for Christmas this year. Does anyone have any ideas for me? Let me know!

What’s Unique About YOU?

December 2, 2009 at 9:15 pm (Uncategorized) (, , )

I am surrounded by people all the time who tell me things that define them uniquely as a person. However, these are people that I know personally, so I can see them when they tell me these things. However, I want to hear from my followers out there. Leave me a comment letting me know something unique about yourself…it can be anything from the fact that you can’t sleep without your pickled tonsils in a jar from your tonsillectomy next to your night stand to the fact that you have a 12th toe.

It will be interesting to see what quirks describe the people who follow my blog….let loose…have fun with your comment! (I’ll comment back if you’d like me to)

A Thought to Give Thanks

November 29, 2009 at 5:55 am (Introduction!) (, , , , , , )

As my inaugural blog post comes days immediately after Thanksgiving, I thought it would be more than appropriate to introduce myself to the world (via blog) while simultaneously paying homage to the fact that Thanksgiving occurred not too long ago. I am sure almost all the bloggers here are probably individuals who find it their duty to give their opinion on every subject under the sun and then some. As if voicing themselves to other people isn’t enough they turn to a blogging site to express themselves even further.

I'm like this chick...except with more clothes...

I, on the other hand, am very different. You’d be hard-pressed to find me voicing an opinion on anything. I like to keep quiet, as it tends to be much easier to do that, to not say anything at all. I am not one t seek crowds or draw attention to myself as then I am forced to be social and jovial. Not my thing. This is an avenue to hopefully remedy that. I intend to provide anyone who is willing to read my thoughts on things that interest me. This may include reviews of movies, technology, and my various experiences. Or it may include musings of the day. Unscripted. Raw. That’s me.

This Thanksgiving, I was fortunate to (over)indulge in the heaps of mashed potatoes, scoops of corn casserole and turkey stuffing, cups of juice, and of course slices of turkey. In the hazy stupor that immediately followed such a hefty meal, I got to thinking about what I am appreciative of. I am thankful for my friends and family. I am also thankful for music. This is two out of the handful of things I could name, but I don’t want to do too much justice to my name too early on.

I will now sign off and leave you to explore any and all musings as they come.

Feel free to live vicariously through the verbose vixen.
