So I'm staying at home on a Saturday night. I've spend all of my last paycheck and have about $20 to last me until Friday. So while my friends are out having dinner and a night out on the town, I'm stuck here eating a peanut butter sandwich and popcorn while watching Good Will Hunting (i DVR'd it a few a days ago). You know things are bad when you cannot even afford a Red Box rental. 

Once I do have extra $$$, I want to buy a Nikon. My digital camera broke and although I'm not good with cameras/photography, the Nikon just looks so chic and sophisticated. I want I want I want. And it really sucks having to resort to mac photobooth when needing to take a picture of something. 

Oh the joys of being a 20something in the current economy.

becoming alpha

This book was one of my Valentine's Day presents from my mom. It's not a dog training book but a dog psychology book. I've learned that my dear Stella thinks she is the pack leader. I'm trying take over the leadership role but it's proving to be more difficult that I thought it would be. I've gone too long thinking of her as a 4-legged human, my baby girl. A big No-No in Cesar's Way. I don't like to tell her "NO" 193854387 times a day. It comes to a point when I'm just like, ok, fine, do whatever you want. So now I'm trying to break that habit. So even if I've had a 12+ hour day and just want to relax on the couch and unwind, I still have to have a "calm-assertive energy" and make sure she's behaving at all times. EXHAUSTING.

i can't help it; i love beginnings

So I've had an online journal for many, many years. More than a decade, actually.  I've tried a few times to become more blog-esque and less journal-esqe but nothing has ever stuck. I need a theme. And spending your days/nights in retail hell is enough without having to also blog about it. "Another Life of a 20something" is too broad and was resembling my online journal. So here's my next attempt. What's the theme? I don't really know. Maybe I don't need one. There's going to be pictures. Life updates. My fashion inspirations. More information than a Twitter but less than a journal entry. Sound good? Well whatever. This is for me and my insatiable need to document my life.
