Halloween! September 23, 2007

Filed under: Newest Entries — pixystixy @ 4:25 pm

My most recent obsessions have been delicious green tea, gambling, smoking cigars, the iPhone and Halloween.  Halloween will soon take over as #1 since it is quickly approaching.

I seriously can’t wait for Halloween!  I am going as a gangster.  I have plans on going to a bar Halloween night and hopefully winning a costume contest.  I am so excited!  🙂

 

I hurt so much … September 17, 2007

So, I went to a concert last night and got beer dumped all over me and had a ton of hard hitters beating me up.  I wimped out and bailed as soon as possible!  🙂

 

So Vegas carries over into Tucson … September 15, 2007

Filed under: Personal — pixystixy @ 12:14 pm

So I spent about five or six hours in an Indian casino last night.  It really wasn’t a fruitful experience for me since I lost $100 overall, however it was fun to keep wining enough to be able to play for that long at least!

Life has been pretty slow for me lately, mainly because I had been sick the past week or so from some crazy cold I must have caught when I got back into town.  I am told it is from the airplane, which does make sense except that my traveling buddies didn’t get the same thing and I had rubbed antibacterial hand-sanitizer all over me before I got on the plane, during and after.   Yes, I know it could have been airborne, but I am just going to continue to claim that it is the fact that I am allergic to returning home from vacations.

I have gotten myself into a kind of hard place lately.  I think I will have to make some serious changes soon because I need to adjust and get myself back on track again.  I kind of let myself derail in a way because of all of this personal drama I had early on in the year and it is still trying to catch its way back up to me.  I will make it through everything.  I just will have to adjust and recommit my life to something more important than anything else (which would be me, of course) and keep myself on track.

One thing that I should work on this week is focus.  I think that should be my goal for now.  I need to focus more on my life and controlling it.  I am letting too many things get out of hand and I know better than that.  I need to learn to pay attention to whatever project I am working on and not lead myself astray.  Once I master that, maybe I can move on to something different but I think focus will be something that will be difficult for me, since I always have given myself so many distractions.  Hopefully I will be able to overcome this problem …

 

IDK, some Vegas Vac. 411 2 keep on the DL September 11, 2007

Apparently, “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” … in my case however, it is not necessary!  What happened in my week long adventure to Sin City was the following:

  1.  Gambling!  Especially roulette for some strange reason
  2. Eating … and more eating … and even more eating to the point where I never want to eat again!
  3. Drinking .. it is hard for me to not drink when it is free!

It was definitely a fun time.  We got to see Sway from MTV News at the Palms since it was the week of the MTV Video Music Awards and all and the was exciting.  I joined the player’s club at three different casinos.  My only regret — only getting 1/5 of the required points at the Palms towards getting a free t-shirt which read, “What happens at the Palms, never happened” … got to love that!

In other news, I do love the new texting commerical from AT&T … hence the title of this entry …

 

Highlights from my journal (Week 1) August 27, 2007

Filed under: Lists,Personal,Strange Observations,The "Feeler" theory — pixystixy @ 12:00 am

“Since I have yet been able to master the art of communication, and I do not feel comfortable discussing my feelings with other people I started this journal.  I had a nervous breakdown today and I believe this will be somewhat therapeutic for me.

… (edited for content)  🙂

My main problem is that I feel emotionally damaged.  I always give, and give and give and when things don’t work out, I feel like pieces of my soul are lost forever because of it.

Today was interesting because I got to see Superbad with Chris.  It was an awesome movie and it really made me want to change my name to McLovin.  I am convinced that only good can come from that.

I want to start setting goals for myself.  Here are some recent ideas:

1.)  Learn to speak Polish fluently

2.)  Lose 10-15 pounds, just to feel healthier and happier

3.)  Smile more

The last one is most important to me.  I want people to see me as a happy and positive individual and smiling always helps with gaining confidence and trust with new people.  Being fluent in Polish is also important to me.  I will sort of feel like I am letting my heritage go if I don’t even try and my family worked so hard to come to this country and provide a life for my parents and for me I really want to hang on to that.”

Yes, that was the Reader’s Digest version and I left out all of the juicy personal details but it is definitely a step in the right direction for me.  Maybe I will build up enough confidence to one day feel better about putting the way I feel out there for everyone to see but this is just one little baby step at a time.

 

I started a journal August 25, 2007

Filed under: Humor,Personal,The MySpace Disease — pixystixy @ 2:54 pm

I thought maybe since I have been suffering from lack of sleep and my freakish need to constantly clean my room has become tiresome I would start writing in a journal.  Yes, I realize that my blog is supposed to be journal like, however, I don’t ever write about personal things so much on here because … well, duh, it is on the internet.

I might start posting highlights from my diary (no, that sounds too wimpy)  journal on here.  Who knows what great psychotic rants I will get into now that I am totally a walking zombie.

On a side note, Facebook is totally the bigger waste of time than even MySpace.  I have friends on Facebook that I have seen or spoken to since like elementary school.  It is insane!  MySpace is still a social disease however I am begining to think that Facebook is so much worse.  I can only waste a half an hour at a time on MySpace but Facebook I can waste hours on end with.  I mean … WTF?
