Putting the "Wreck" in "Emotional Trainwreck"

Comments (11)

Yesterday was a virtual disaster from beginning to end. Narrating the tale proved to be too long and ridiculous, so bullet points will have to suffice.

Why yesterday was a bad day:

  • Didn't sleep at all during the nighttime.
  • Trusted my mom to wake me from a nap (she offered), but she sent my dad instead. My dad says stupid things like, "Would you like me to come back later?" when he's waking me.
  • Overslept massively.
  • Didn't have time to shower. Had to wash hair in the sink.
  • Got shampoo in my eye.
  • Didn't have time to properly dry clothing.
  • Went to an interview in damp shirts.
  • Trusted my mom to pick me up for my interview (she offered), but my dad stayed home from work instead, leaving me his car to drive.
  • Had to drive my dad's car, which I hate with an indescribable passion.
  • Cursed up and down in a fit of frustration from the moment I woke up 'til the moment I arrived at the church for my interview.
  • Was so tired and stressed and emotionally tipsy that I wound up crying during my interview with my pastor.
  • Sobbed after the interview.
  • Almost killed people while trying to drive and cry at the same time.
  • Didn't even get the job I really wanted.

Why yesterday was an "okay" day:

  • Got a job.
  • Received lots of lovin' from the fine folks over at Twitter.
  • Watched Lord of the Rings while chowing down on pizza and chocolate, pretty much an unstoppable combination of goodness in my world.
  • Didn't have to pose for a stupid Obligatory Door Picture.
  • Got to be ridiculously angsty while taking this picture instead:

My parents were too busy not loving me to take my Obligatory Door Picture. :(

I'm sorry your day sucked. But that picture gave me much amusement.

Goodness.

Well, at least you're going to reward yourself by opening an awesome birthday present. I mean, that right there makes the whole ordeal worth it!!

golfwidow - Thanks. :) Doodling with crayons seems to help keep me sane.

Thursday's Child - Yeah, unfortunately, I just fell asleep instead of opening your present. I think I've slept through like twenty of the past twenty-four hours. X(

Scrangie - Why thank you! After talking to my mom a little more about the job, I'm starting to allow myself to see a glimmer of hope. Best of all? I can read your beauty blog now and actually be able to AFFORD SOME PRODUCTS. Yay!

Aw man... So sorry about your day. But at least you got a job, and you'll be being productive AND having a bit of a life! :-) Best of luck to you!

Sorry about your day darling, :( Mine ended up being pretty sucky too. It's amazing how some days just start out bad and how others start out ok and then with the flip of a switch they end up to be totally sucky. That was defiantly my day yesterday. But at least you got a job, right?

Aww, sorry your day didn't go too well. I hate those!

It's so inconvenient when you are wide awake at night, and are dying for a nap during the day.

And the whole "tell mom to do something, so she tells your dad, but dad isn't much of a help" thing is SO familiar! haha.

But hey, at least we'll always have pizza and chocolate there for us right? :)

Gilligan - Aye, there are at least a few things to look forward to once I recover from the massive embarrassment of crying at my interview. I'm sure after I spend a few paychecks on comforting things like chocolate and new clothes and whatnot, I'll have completely forgotten (read: repressed) the whole ordeal!

Jacob - Aww, I'm sorry I haven't really been online much lately, either. I take it that's why you were trying to get a hold of me the other day. :( Poor thing.

Kim - Yay for pizza and chocolate! I seriously don't think I would've made it through the weekend without them. I owe the people at Kleenex, Giordano's, and Hershey's many sincere thanks.

Okay, now I'm going to sound like a creepy stalker, but I just happend to click on your Flickr album...

I think your green eyeshadow looks good! Screw Carmindy. Hahaha. Freaking Crest Whitestrips.

The whole eye color issue can mostly be avoided by varying colors across the lid (so your eyes still stand out)... Example... A light color (perhaps light gold) on the inner third of the lid, then your green color, then a darker color in the outer crease (extended as far as you are comfortable).

But, yeah, yours looks really good and I love you for not putting it all the way up to your eyebrows. j00 = not teh n00b! Hooray!

Wow, look at me, a chance to talk about makeup and I start rambling! Sorry!

Scrangie - I love Carmendy to death, but that whole season or ten with the pimping of the Crest White Strips? Obnoxious! And bless you, my dear, for coming back to comment with your advice. I trust your judgment completely, and I plan on trying out this whole "varying colors" thing next week with my whole new job wardrobe. :)

Hey. I thought of you today. I was reading a chapter for my psychology class and the opening of the chapter made reference to Lord of the Rings.
