So i’ve figured out that posting 3 posts a day gets me approximately 45 views, depending on what it’s on, of course…

I’d love to write 3 posts a day! …Sometimes my life’s just not that interesting. X’D

“…A Truly Glorious Lord’s Day.”

photo (10)

Wow, i genuinely just have to say, today was a really, really great day. πŸ™‚ No exceptions, no…anything negative, really. πŸ™‚
I got up around 8, freezing cold and not particularly caring if i was late for church membership class at 9, because it was just too cold to be existing at that venture in time. X’D But i somehow bucked myself up and got out of bed, and dressed in the softest, warmest clothes i could find (which coincidentally, all happened to be gray), complete with leg warmers and comfy socks. ^_^

I was on time for class, and it was it’s normal amount of exciting…which really just means informative, so that’s a good thing at least πŸ˜›
Marth and i were both up late last night, so i knew he would be at least boarderlining late, once church actually started…His best friend Caleb went across the street to his house to go get him when it was about five minutes till, and i just talked to people and chilled.
When we were 10 minutes into the service and they still hadn’t shown up, so i just figured they weren’t coming or had slid into the back unnoticed.
As soon as the pastor started the opening prayer tho, my two ninjas slipped down the aisles into their seats, next to their respective ladies, and it was like magic when everybody opened their eyes! XD smooth criminals…

The message was amazing; i absolutely love our new pastor πŸ™‚ He was talking about the unity of the church community and how important it is, if we’re to be perceived as anything but a judgmental, close-minded clique. When we got home, i found this picture that really summed it up well, and i posted it to our church’s facebook group, and thanked our Pastor, because it’s so true…

Uugh; it’s just so true! I love it πŸ™‚ he actually used that verse too, and it just summed up the message really well.
After the service, me, Marth, Caleb and his wife, Amy, took a trip out to our favorite Asian restaurant for lunch πŸ™‚ It was a great time, just to chill and be together and eat amazing food! πŸ˜€
Caleb and Amy went home and Marth and i proceeded to change into our most comfortable clothes, grab our fuzziest blankets and park ourselves on the couch to watch Flip-Or-Flop with his parents…for the next four hours. X’D We mostly slept…it was a good time ^_^

(Bonus; during that time i did receive a call from the Human Resources girl at Wegmans, who was helping set up my interview time with them! πŸ˜€ hopefully, I start on Tuesday! πŸ˜€ )

Around 5:30, we perked up to get ready for the evening service at church, because everyone who wants to play floor hockey in the gym after has to come to church first πŸ˜› So that was fun too; we’re working thru a series on the Bible and we focused mainly on the historical books of the Old Testament. It really inspired me to start reading thru the Bible again, especially the OT, because it’s just so interesting…i honestly love it so much πŸ™‚ Hopefully Amy will do it with me! πŸ˜€

After the service, i zipped home to change into leggings, shorts and a t-shirt to play hockey in πŸ™‚ Marth and i have been practicing, so i was hoping to have made some more improvement over the past two weeks. (more like he’s been helping me practice, because he was part of the church league a while ago, so he’s already amazing. πŸ˜› )
It was super great; i can truly say some of those guys are really some of the most amazing people…they’re sweet, but they won’t baby you, and you actually come out of the pickup games feeling like you’ve done a good run, and learned some stuff, even if it was just everyone’s names and some new word definitions. X’D (“BOARDS, BOARDS, BOARDS!!!”)

But, yeah. πŸ™‚ Marth asked me around 9:30 when the games were over if i wanted to go to Tim Hortons (who ever turns down Tim Hortons, really?) So we got TimBits and french vanilla cappuccino…just like the good old days at college together πŸ™‚ So that was alot of fun too. We chilled there for a while before hitting Tops for some cold meds for me, some melatonin for him, and he also picked up some fruit for the week. He’s really been trying to eat healthier on a more consistent basis, and it’s so encouraging and inspiring to me, because it’s something i really prayed alot about when we first started dating. (at college, he drank mtn. dew, at every single meal, every single day. It was really bad. :/ ) But i’m just really proud of him, and blessed to be there to encourage him and support him!

We both popped some Vitamin C tablets and drove home, recapped tomorrow’s plan and went our separate ways πŸ™‚ But it was really an amazing day, and i’m just so thankful…good way to start a new week. πŸ™‚

MEMEBOX.com Order #3 ^_^

The day has arrived…I’ve been waiting since the 7th for this box!! πŸ˜€
I just have to brag on this company so much right now…they are just wonderful!!
I usually place my orders on late Thursday night and receive them on Tuesday night. I was super disappointed that i didn’t get it last night, but i checked the mail the next day around noon and it was there! πŸ˜€ and let me tell you, it was well worth the wait!

First, I ordered 9 masks and a blemish cream.

photo 3 (2)

Most of them are re-orders; there’s 5 total here πŸ™‚ I have acne and sebum trouble with my chin and t-zone so i love the teatree one!! Now that i switched to VaniCream soap and lotion, most of my acne has cleared (i’ll do a review on that in the future, as well!) and i just have residual dark spots and scarring from previous spots :/ so i’m super excited for the illuminating one, that, tho i’ve used before, it didn’t really accomplish it’s intended purpose because my acne was so bad. :/ i hope it will improve them!
The snail bee one is just amazing. If you ever want to choose and just try ONE mask, you should get this one. It’s $2, which is cheap for snail excretion and bee venom, it fits my face just fine, and it’s loaded with essence! It can make your skin kinda sticky afterwords, but oh my gosh, my skin feels like new afterwords!!

These are new purchases, specifically for my remaining acne in hopes that i can clear it up a bit! The cream was actually a little smaller than i expected it to be, for $10, but it’s not one of those things you’ll need to use alot of…I’ve heard nothing but good things tho about it, so i’m hoping it will be worth it!

Best part???
I do want to say that from both SoKoGlam.com and MEMEBOX.com, i’ve gotten free stuff! but this is the most free stuff i’ve ever gotten at once before!! These aren’t on the receipt and there’s no mention of them; they’re just in the box with my stuff ^_^ the TONYMOLY tomato is a sample size, but there is a FULL-SIZED, EXTRA mask stuck in my box! πŸ˜€ that’s at least $1-2 worth of free mask!! πŸ˜€ i was so pumped…

As always, the staff are super personal, and super cute! ❀ My full name was also typed in 22-point font at the top of the receipt as well, with some cute little drawings. ^_^
I’ve just never had a bad experience with them! πŸ™‚
I always buy just $30 worth, because then i get free shipping from them. ^_^ (SoKoGlam.com requires $50 :/ that’s the ONLY reason i don’t buy from them more frequently because they have great stuff as well!!)

SO, yeah! πŸ˜€ i’m so pumped, and i just had to brag on them for a bit, because they’re just amazing, and i’m always so excited to order and receive from them! πŸ˜€ It just goes to show that a little extra presentation, personalization, and just being great is worth it! ❀ i’d recommend them to anyone πŸ™‚

…Now, to go take a bath and try one of these out! ^_^

“It’s Not Like That In Real Life” Part 2 – The Story

This has been a rough past couple days for me. My paycheck was less than i needed on thursday, and i worked all day yesterday. When i left at 6:30 to go to the grocery store, while at the checkout after shopping for an hour, realized that i had bounced a check. (but it wasn’t entirely my fault; it was a long weird story) Basically, I spent much of yesterday evening curled up in a ball on my living room floor crying my eyes out, because i was so stressed.
Thankfully this morning it was a much quicker fix than i anticipated, i have a job interview in 2 hours and then i go to work at 1:30 until 9:15ish, give or take 20 minutes on either side.
If anyone tries to tell you that being an adult doesn’t suck, all around, it does. “Anyone who says differently is selling something.”

It’s nothing like you expect. There’s way more to remember, way more to do, but none of it is truly “hard”, in the sense of the word. It’s just the grind, just the actual “get-up-and-go” to do stuff, like registering a car, changing a license, having all the right information, having self-control over spending and financial organization to make sure you don’t bounce checks, etc. Its rough sometimes, and the perks like living on your own, having cable, and getting to do “whatever you want” (which basically means watching tv and eating rocks, because you’re broke) are merely a sad attempt to make it all worth it.

“You always wanted to be an adult. And now you realize it’s more than eating ice cream out of the box and not having a bedtime.” – My Dad.

Don’t get me wrong, kids. Life is great. But it’s anything but easy, and you need all the good times you can get to get thru all the inevitable bad ones. If they haven’t found you yet, they will. So hold onto the good, the promises, the little things. And we’ll make it someday. πŸ™‚

I’m hooked on a feeling,

I’m high on believing…

 

That you’re in love with me!

-Marth and i went for a drive tonight about an hour ago and just got back now. πŸ™‚ we got hot apple cider at Tim Hortons, and sang and laughed and just enjoyed being together πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to have nights like tonight for the rest of my life!

Senseless Anxiety

I’m a very confident person, especially for a girl (or so i’ve been told). Not very much will completely throw me or make me sick to my stomach. Sure, i worry about what people think of me or if i’m actually doing anything with my life, but nothing crippling.

Every once in a while tho, when i do get anxious, (of course) i absolutely lose it, and (of course) it always happens out of the blue for no explicable reason.

One minute, i’m sleeping contentedly on the couch in the basement on a sunday afternoon next to the love of my life. Next minute, everything that i should be doing with my life hits me.

Meyla. You work at a retail store that gives you 20 hours a week, with no hope of things getting better there. How do you expect to pay rent? How do you expect to pay for a wedding??

Well, actually…I’ve got nothing.Β 

Oh. That wedding. That’s a whole different anxiety attack in itself. You don’t even know where you’re having it yet, do you? It’s now 9 months away. Whatcha gonna do about that??

Shut up, we’ll talk about that when we go to my family’s house for Thanksgiving. Goodness knows, they’ve been asking enough questions about it.Β 

Your family. 3:) Thanksgiving. You’re flying for the first time, and you still don’t know how you’re getting to the airport. You’re really gonna make your fiance’s parents get up at 5am to drive you to the Buffalo airport?? Good gosh; you haven’t even started packing yet. What the frick is wrong with you?Β 

Well, i don’t know how else we’ll get there…

And that car of your’s. Didn’t it almost not start the other night?? that rushing noise has just gotten louder, and you know it’s even worse in the cold. You really should start looking for another one.Β 

You see, i would if i had money…

See, it all comes down to that. You’re a bum, Rocko. You’ve accomplished nothing with your life except make yourself broker and have less of a clue of what you want to do with your future. Now, you’re sitting in front of the computer typing this all out and watching Max and Ruby because you’re marginally retarded, and it’s the only thing that you feel like doing right now….Plus you’re fat.Β 

WHERE DID THAT EVEN COME FROM?!??!?!!?!?!!??!

That’s none of your business. Now go work out. Go pack. Do something. I hate you. You suck. You’re a lazy bum, and you’re engaged to a guy who’s okay with that. You realize you’re going to get fat and lazy when you grow older and live in a van down by the river-

SHUT THE FRICK UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*sigh* yeah. That’s the nuclear fallout that is my brain right now. Marth is still asleep. This all happened in the span of about a minute and a half to 2 minutes. I’m not an anxious person. I mean, i can be, but i’m not!
I think i’m gonna head home. I feel rotten cuz i don’t like just leaving out of nowhere and i don’t want Marth to think he did anything wrong, but the only way for me to fix this is to do something with my life. Pack and figure out what i need at walmart for the trip. (and Ben and Jerry’s ISN’T on the list. Because i’m broke and fat.) And maybe work out. That never hurt.

I mean, at least i know how to handle stuff like this in a healthy way, praise God. Because if i didn’t, stuff like this would have messed me up a long time ago.

…Right after this episode of Max and Ruby. πŸ˜‰

 

:)

Really enjoying today so far πŸ™‚ I do have to leave for work in 2 hours, but right now i’m just enjoying cuddling under a blanket in Marth’s basement listening to worship music while he plays with his new toy, (the new Star Wars Battlefront game for PC. XD ) We’re just chilling…not particularly dying to be in eachother’s arms, but not wanting to spend the time away from eachother either πŸ™‚
Recently i’ve been thinking alot about us and wedding plans and such… Marth has volunteered (and i may have to hold him to this) to start doing some more of the footwork for planning the wedding and find a place to have the reception, which has honestly been burning me out so much; it’s so stressful, because not only do i not know the area super well, but i also have never done this before. It’s honestly super comforting to hear people at work tell me “Well, nobody knows how to do this unless you’ve been married a bunch of times!”
Just gotta keep moving forward, slow and steady, and chipping away at this. I just don’t want to be procrastinating.
We’ve also really embraced our positions in our church, me, Marth, and Caleb and Amy. We’re on the schedule to do music at church next month, and it’s honestly really exciting! ^_^ It’s just fun stuff, nothing stressful or crazy, really, nothing to make us look good or promote any agenda of our’s…just to have fun, to glorify God, and strengthen the music ministry of our church πŸ™‚ i know it means alot to our music pastor that we want to be a part of this πŸ™‚ And it’s just fun! i love singing; i’m not great, but i’m not bad, and i can perform on the fly, as long as i’ve heard the song before. (of course, i also might get stuck playing keys, which will definitely be a challenge, but isn’t impossible! πŸ™‚ )
We’re also headed out to my family’s house in Maine for thanksgiving next week! πŸ˜€ i’m so pumped; i’ve missed our neighbors and my best friends SO much. I haven’t seen them in about 7 months. :/ I’m just hoping and praying that it will be fun and enjoyable for everyone… I also need to start looking for a second job… O_O probably should do that now πŸ˜‰
