Why Are You Single?

Standard

Image

 

Well, yes, I know why I am “still” single. Here are my many reasons:

I’m Fiercely Independent

I am alone, not lonely. I go on vacation by myself, I go to the club by myself, and I go to events by myself. I really enjoy myself.

I’m Bored…

I do almost everything by myself and the addition of anyone in my group of one has to be interesting and funny. Sorry, telling me the entire plot of Star Wars on our date is not going to cut it. I’m a nerd; I’ve seen it, I’ve played, I’ve read some of it. I get it.

My Old Fashioned Taste?

Apparently, Britney Spears is out. The DJ played her song and the packed dance floor migrated to the bar and…I kept dancing. I don’t follow trends and my tastes do evolve; but, it is more of an add on process. I like this new thing and I like these old trends, too. Good thing I hated the puffy vest trend of 2000. Yes, that should have Kept Closed.

At Least She Won’t Drown!

I Don’t “Socialize Correctly”

I don’t drink or do drugs. I go to the bar/club to dance and at times play video games (yes, they have gamer nights). I don’t socialize all that much. It seems to me when you approach someone one in a sober way at the library or in a store they look at you like you are a creep. Then you go on a date and they whip out their phone and show you Japanese viral videos while you munch a sandwich. *sigh* Thanks alcohol and cell phones you have ruined ability for the world to socialize like a normal socially!

Sacrifice

Standard

I worked 50 hours and went to classes this week. I wrote one blog post and on Tuesday and Thursday I only had two cat naps equaling in total four hours. I worked too hard and the fact is I had no play time this week until today. It is hard to only have one day off because most weeks I have two and spend the first day night primarily for sleeping. This week I have to jam sleep with free time.

I thought I was doing that today. I was somewhat wrong. I had plans for after 4pm and I showed up at home just after 7:30am and promptly went to sleep to get ready for those plans. Juggling relationships among school and work and sleep is never quite that simple. My plans, you see, were cancelled by the other party and I was left with a hole in my day. I do not mind being alone by any means.

Walking the world when you are too busy to smell the roses or spend time talking to anyone feels less like being alone and more like being lonely. I wonder if I am being crazy thinking I can shove everything into the 168 hours that we are given in a week. I feel caged in this apartment when I am awake enough to spend the time here. My days seem cut into segments of requirements. I must be here at this time and I must have this read by this time and I must have this much sleep to do it.

I also have to find corners of time to clean the corners of my home; which as much as I push my energy level to the max I can never get the place the way it should be. I wish others around me understood my time is the most valuable thing I can give. I do not like when plans I have placed on high priority get cancelled at the last minute. Those hours might mean nothing to you; but, they are the only hours that matter to me. I made the sacrifice sleep or study time to show I care about you. Please show you care about me.

Fun Facts Friday

Standard

Here are some fun facts I think will entertain you:

1. I do not shave my legs above the knee because  no hair grows there.

2. I am happy to have a full day off to just hang out and do nothing. Friday=Funday

3. My Monday is Saturday and my Friday is Wednesday.

4. Hump day is Monday! Still sucks. *sigh*

5. I watch too much HGTV. Now I want a house!

6. I watch too much Food Network. Now I want food!

7. I don’t know why I am excited to watch Catching Fire. I read the book; I know what happens.

8. My Race and Crime professor says we are going into depth about Armenian Heritage and my mind is going to be blown. Who votes I am an alien race immune to the zombie outbreak?

9. If the above is true, I am totally going to use it against the TSA.

10. I am tired and all I did today that caused me to put on pants was go to the bank for 15 minutes!

That is all for now. Back to meaningless surfing.

 

Back To Reality

Standard

After an epic weekend it is hard to get back to the swing of things. I started school this week and all of my classes seem interesting. I have three classes I have to physically attend: Race and Crime, Social Psychology, and Comparative Psychology and one online class: Domestic Violence. I have been thinking about getting a Masters in Social Work after I finish my Bachelor’s. Maybe.

I also got whacked in the head by a metal cart shelf at work. I worked the rest of the night with blood dripping from my head. Yesterday, I had a splitting headache and if it was not mandatory to go to the first day of the classes I was taking, I would have skipped. I did skip work because I needed to sleep off my migraine. I feel better today. Back to reality.

Radio Star

Standard

So, I promised some of my favorites that are not on the radio. Well, a radio station has just changed my life! Well, not really changed my life; at least they have made me very happy! I randomly enter contest and I am on the e-mail list for the station Mix 100.7. I do love Mix because out of any station on my dial it has a larger variety of music. Anyways, I saw an email about meeting the Backstreet Boys on August 23rd and I entered because I love the Backstreet Boys and it was on a Friday which is my day off. Well, yesterday I was going through my email. I was deleting spam and came across the winning email! So, today I am meeting the Backstreet Boys and seeing the invite only performance at Mix 100.7′ studio! Then I get to go to the concert! Woot! So, if you are free around noon Eastern Time you can watch the performance here: http://www.tampabaysmix.com/iplaylist/artist/199819/  Look for an update on my BSB experience!

Meanwhile here are some artist who do not get enough air time:

Vanessa Carlton, Michelle Branch, Keene, John Mayer, and, of course, Backstreet Boys!

Have a great day! I know I will!

Songs I Never Want To Hear Again!

Standard

I listen to a large variety of music. Some of it not what one would call the best. I mean who doesn’t blast Backstreet Boys down the street and really wants *NSYNC to just get back together for a show or two already? Most normal people. On that note I do have songs I can not stand and never want to hear ever again. Here is the list:

1. I Need Your Love, Calvin Harris ft. Ellie Goulding

Okay, if you really need my love, you need to shut up with the needy plea! I have never heard the song past the second line because her voice just gets on my nerves and I have to change the station. Up until looking it up just to get the name right I did not even know there is a dude singing in it. I hope that was not him in the first two lines.

2. Bad Day, Daniel Powter

I have not heard this song in quite a few years and my ears have thanked me. This is one of the most annoying, whine voiced, and crappy lyrical song I have ever heard. I mean if it is as easy as not kicking up the leaves to lose the magic, I would have a charmed life. The worst part? When I am having a bad day already this song’s catch phrase plays repeat in my head. Thank you for being a catchy annoyance!

3. My Immortal, Evanescence

I loved it when it first came out; but it is still overplayed TEN YEARS LATER. Enough already!

4. In The End, Linkin Park

Same reason as My Immortal. It does not matter what new awesome song Linkin Park comes out with; the new song will get air play for a couple weeks and then the DJ thinks it is time to play In The End every hour for the next five months. I want to hear the new song; because, in the end that is all that matters.

5. Somebody That I Used To Know, Gotye

It seems to me whoever he use to know ran off with his balls. This is the only reason for a grown man to be whining that high pitch on my radio.

6. Baby, Justin Bieber

This is the only title I know by him. I just hate anything by him; but, if I even look up any of his songs my head might blow up. Repeating the word “Baby” in a whine is not a song. Please join Gotye on finding the person who stole your balls.

7.Where Have You Been, Rihanna

Answer: Far away from this song. It just does not flow. Gluing a piece from two different songs just does not stick.

8. Waterfalls, TLC

I simply like Unpretty better and they never play it anymore. Whenever someone mentions TLC on goes Waterfalls. That is what my generation would call a “Scrub” move (“Lazy” for those who are not my gen).

9, Give Me Everything, Pitbull ft. Ne-Yo, Afrojack, Nayer

First off there are too many people in this song. Either get a band or cut some people. Second, how is it just featuring Ne-Yo when he sings the catch for the song? It is more Ne-Yo featuring Pitbull saying random junk like in all of his songs. Third, this “Lolly” can not stand any of it. Whine mixed with random whatever one liners. Ick!

10. Right Round, Flo Rida

I like Flo Rida; but, this is just repeating the same junk over and over. You can’t even dance to it because there is no real beat. I am too old to play Ring-Around-The-Rosie at the club.

I get excited when the radio plays a good song I have not heard in a while. Those songs on Friday. Until then feel free to vent about songs you hate!
