I think I am going to start making Neopets User Lookup layouts!
I am also going to make "Name Tags" to put on ULs.
I have examples, but you can see my Neopets name on there and I don't want to give that away! The name tag also has my name infused in the graphic (So no one can steal it) so if I blurred it out, it would look weird....
See... but you get the idea!
I have so many ideas for layouts, loads of inspiration! I can't wait until the weekend to start on my Cinderella one! Hahaha, yeah, I love Cinderella.
This layout is something I threw together really fast though, so don't judge the first one! They will get better, I know it!
So, I am sitting in the living room watching the fireworks and they're pretty and all, but with every boom that goes on, I keep seeing my apartment burn to the ground. I keep reliving the moment I walked up to see my actual apartment burning down! It was the most scariest thing I have ever lived through. Every year since then, I have always cringed at neighborhoods allowing fireworks to be put off willy nilly. I am scared from the moment I hear the first boom, until my mind realizes they have stopped. I hate 4th of July and New Years Eve. This is the first time I have even expressed this emotion or feeling towards fireworks, but that's because this is the first time I am living an apartment with fireworks going off right in my back yard!
"Meeghan Yard said she had been visiting her sister in Cleveland and knew nothing about it until about 10:30 a.m., when she returned to discover her apartment had become a heap of rubble."
That was my best friend and roommate! I didn't have my cell phone to even tell her! I didn't know her number by heart to call her! I had no idea where she was.
"That bulldozer is sitting in my apartment, said Miss Yard, 20, who, like many of those displaced, lacked insurance. I ve lived in apartments all my life and never had it, never thought I needed it."
We made that decision together to not get renters insurance. The main reason was we couldn't afford it, but we thought nothing like this would happen.
This was my first "home" after being homeless for 4 months. Homeless and I had everything. We had only been living there for 2 months when it burned down! 2 months! We find a home and we lose everything. We worked so very hard for that home. We both had no place to live before that. Who would've thought that we would have been better off living in our car somewhere else?
So, this is my first year playing for the AC on Team Codex... and let me tell you! It has been an experience!
First off, on day three, 14 of 19 accounts were frozen, to include my main! My main being frozen was a heart breaker because I had just put some $$ real $$ in that account. Plus, it was premium. But oh well, life goes on! I then created more accounts to get my total back up to 13 shells to continue the fight for Team Codex. They are now all on Al*Star rank! I stopped SS'ing on my bf's account, because his is the oldest! His account is 13 years old. But, he is also All*Star rank!
I think I have been relatively lucky since the first mass freeze. I have yet to be hit again with any iced accounts. *knocks on wood* Once the AC finishes up, which ever accounts I have left, I will decide on which one will be the new main for me. To date, I am still racking up points for Team Codex on 12 out of 13 accounts, maxing out every day on YYB, MSN, and SOSD. I have been playing 100 SLSL games for fear of that game possibly causing accounts to get frozen.
I also have been playing legit on random accounts on Sundays. I do actually love playing these games, expect YYB, which I still have no idea how to play nor do I care enough to learn lol. So, all in all, this AC year has been a roller coaster ride! Lots of ups and downs, twists and turns, and topsy turvies. It has been an honor to play for Team Codex, even though it seems that this year we will not pull out a win due to JS altering scores or whatever they have been doing.
I can't wait until next year's ACXII to see if we can overcome the hardships we dealt with this year! I definitely think that we should use slack chat to announce the team next year, and no newbies can join in on the chat even if they are ranked Advanced. I think Slack for ACXII should only be for those who fought the good fight this year! Whether their accounts were frozen or not, it's the best way that I can think of to make sure our team isn't leaked! And, we'll know if it is leaked, who to start looking at in the slack chat!
So, yeah.... Father's Day isn't exactly special to me. It used to have meaning, and will again some day when my significant other and I start our own family, but right now, it means nothing. My dad and I don't have a relationship, his choosing. He doesn't agree with the fact that I am not christian and I don't go to church. He also doesn't agree with the fact that my bf and I live together and are having sex outside of marriage. Apparently, all of this is a good enough excuse to disown his own daughter.
I still sent him a "Happy Father's Day" text just to keep the door open to him and let him know I am still there but he never responds. Last year, I sent him a text on Father's Day which was also my birthday. All he said back was, "Thanks." That's it. No, "I love you!" No, "Happy Birthday!" No, "I'm sorry." Yeah, that last one is wishing.
So, Happy Father's Day to all you wonderful dads out there and I hope it is amazing and fun for you! I hope this day is filled with love and compassion.
Ok, so in 12th grade, maybe 11th, I could not sleep one night and decided to turn the tv on! Once the tv screen lit up, I was graced with this part of the music video! I was hooked! I couldn't stop watching him, His gorgeous hair, those eyes, his mouth! So sexy!
I had no idea what I had stumbled upon! It would forever change my life! It wasn't until a few months later that I figured out who this sexy man was, Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance. My new favorite band of the time! I immediately bought their two CD's that were out at the time and a t-shirt! When I went to college, I printed off many MANY pictures of him and taped them to my dorm room wall where I slept. Those CD's I bought, I uploaded them to my computer and made a music list and pressed play and put it on repeat and the music played constantly for months, if I wasn't there, it was on silent but still playing. I then built a promoting website using Myspace where I began learning how to make graphics, banners and layouts for Myspace! MCR even recognized my website and posted it on their actual MCR homepage! I received tickets to their concert because of that promoting website I had. I was unable to go because my dad said no due to them not being christian. Lame! So, I have yet to go see them in concert... and yes I know they are not currently making music right now but I am holding my breath for when they do come back into the music world.
I also know Gerard Way is doing his own thing in BritishPop, which is pretty cool, I have yet to hear any of his music because my heart will always see him as Gerard Way, lead singer of MCR! But one day, I will sit down and listen to his new music!
Anyways, I was so into MCR and Gerard Way, that I entered contests. And the contest that won me more concert tickets (that once again I could not go to) was the Gerard Way twin contest. I just so happen to find these said twin pictures!
Yes, I was in love with Gerard Way! lol.
Thanks for going back in time with me!
So, today was an all around awesome-tastic day, let me tell you! Well, it started off with me being a little grumpy/cranky because my boyfriend set the alarm for 7:00am but left his normal alarm on for 6:10am. I had to get up at 7:00am to get ready for my day in court! Hahaha, sounds epic! Well, his alarm wen toff at 6:10 and I hop right out of bed, head to the bathroom to begin getting ready, when I look at my phone and see that it is only 6:10. So, I stop what I am doing and go back to bed. Yes, 50 minutes of sleep means a lot to me lol. Except, I never got back to sleep because of the dogs licking themselves (they're really loud too) and Ryan forgot to turn the alarm off, and kept hitting the snooze button so every 10 minutes I would be alerted back awake. I set my alarm for 7:00am because I thought that might have happened, so I knew if my alarm didn't go off, his wasn't the right one either! So, I was a little cranky. He bought me breakfast to make up for it, so all was good and well with the world.
I drive to "work," from here on out I will refer to my internship as work, and immediately went to the person I was following/ riding with to court. It was awesome! I mean, I got to see 27 cases and seen how the Judge worked through them and seen many different types of offenders. It was intriguing. All 27 cases were managed to get through before lunch, so it was a very short day for me. I stayed at the office until lunch was over to see what I would be doing, if anything, or to go home. Well, I went home.
BUT! While I was on lunch, I decided to come on here and see what was happening! That's when I found out I had been voted in to Advanced+! Now, maybe I am too excited or overly excited, but that's just who I am. When I set my sights on something, I want it and when I get it, I am extremely happy! I love my new user bar! Then I looked at all the awards I have accumulated in this short time I came back from my hiatus! I have received/earned 10+ awards in just a few months! So, this place isn't just some place I go to when I am bored. It really is a place I enjoy being in, chatting, doing contests, meeting and learning about new people.
After lunch, I decide to just head home. Well, since I was done for the day so early, I decided to stop at campus and sign some papers for a conference I am going to June 23-27! They needed my insurance info and I needed to sign a liability release form! I am going to Atlanta, Georgia for my birthday weekend! The best part, they are giving me $143 to spend during those days. All meals are paid for! All transportation is paid for. We are also going to the Cocacola Factory and the Aquarium they have down there! Trust me, I will have lots of pictures lol. Everything is paid for! This is amazing. I am going to have a great 30th birthday weekend, the only sad part is my amazing man won't be there. Oh, and they designed shirts for us to wear at the Aquarium so we can find each other easily and they are rainbow tie-dye!!!! So my style. They also gave me the idea to shave the side of my head short and due rainbow cheetah print hair! I think I will take that challenge once my internship is completed and provided they don't hire me after my internship. But if they do hire me, no questions asked, I can live without rainbow cheetah print hair!
Ok, that should be it for now! Thanks for reading. As always, if you any any weird, random, fun, inquisitive questions, feel free to ask and I will answer them as soon as I realize they were asked! Hahaha, a couple questions were missed in my notifications because I had so many notifications I didn't scroll through them all.
Ugh! In 18 days, I am going to turn 30! I do not feel like I am 30 what so ever! Like I still feel like I am 21-23. That being said, I know that I am literally about to cross over into the real ADULT realm. I start my internship on Monday at 8:30am and I am a senior in college, about to graduate. Well, not really, I still have 3 semesters to go! Not to mention, Ryan and I have our own place for the first time and it isn't an easy transition financially, which is stressing both of us out. We are great, thankfully, but the stress is unreal!
At some point this summer, I need to find local sponsors for our Psychology Club and Psi-Chi since I am the President of the two groups! I don't even know where to start to get sponsors, what I have to do, say, ask! I am so not ready to put on my big girl panties.
I feel like my life is about to take off, and so fast, that I am going to lose control! This is a real fear of mine! I never wanted to grow up fast as a child. Even now, I don't want to grow up! I play on child game sites like Neopets, which is admittedly all players who started playing years ago and are 30 and older now playing because of nostalgia. I keep re-watching shows like Gossip Girl, Laguna Beach, The Hills, The OC... things from when I was in high school to first year in college.
I didn't get to be your typical rebellious teenager and I think that's why I refuse to grow up! I was a goody goody, listened to my dad all the time. I didn't drink or party. In fact, my first drink was at the age of 23... on my birthday! The night ended with me getting arrested! I got a misdemeanor for public intoxication! I was crawling around on the ground meowing at people (because cats rule the world), and then I fell down the stairs of the bridge that allows pedestrians cross the road without having to worry about vehicles.
Anyways, if anyone here wants to grow up super fast, JUST DON'T! Enjoy life in the NOW!
What is up with the sporks?
I can't use the 200 x 200 graphics because the file size it too big.
While SS'ing for the AC, once I fixed the proxy problem I had, I have been busy all day unpacking, STILL! I feel like it never ends! I have also been doing laundry and washing all the kitchen dishes that I unpacked so I know they are clean!
I miss my tarot cards! I want to play around with them! I lost my closest deck in 2008 due to a fire in the apartment complex I lived in on July 4th. I lost everything. That day, I learned that I could survive with nothing but my car! I literally rebuilt my life. My boyfriend at the time and I went to Michigan with his family for the 4th of July festivities however he and his mom got into a big old fight so we left. When we got home, we weren't able to park in our normal spot. So we found a parking space somewhere else and walked to our apartment. We literally arrived when the fire reached our home! We could see everything burning through our front sliding doors. Everything in me just wanted to run in there and grab some things. But they wouldn't let me.
That's just one of the many things that have happened in my life that truly made me the person I am today!
Oh, it is totally storming out right now and it is amazing! I love thunderstorms!
