My demise... thank you candy necklace...

As I'm laying here in my bed, chomping on the candies from my giant candy necklace (Thanks Aunt Jill), I've come to realize that candy necklaces are addictive... and that is reason number (1) why candy necklaces can ruin your life. Number (2)... they are disgusting to eat off of the string that they come on, unless you want to slobber all over yourself. Number (3)... it is horribly difficult to get them off of the string that they come on. Number (4)... if you decide to cut the string in the bathroom, chances are, half of the candies will go right down the sink before you realize what you've done. And number (5)... once you start eating the candy, you physically cannot stop.

Yesterday I didn't do a whole lot, but I did go to the hair salon and get all of my hair chopped off. I didn't know I was going to be doing this, I had planned on just getting my split ends cut off, but I ended up with a haircut that I really like, so I'm happy.

Today I woke up and went to the new mall on M-59 called Partridge Creek. It is an outdoor mall, but it is really amazing. It has a bunch of stores that you previously had to drive to Oakland County to find. I found a great jacket and some jeans today. It really did make my day. We stopped by Jill & Jenny's for a minute and hung out with them, which was nice. Later on, I went to dinner with mom & dad to Louis' Chop House... and had filet mignon. Yeah... so we had a $100 gift card to this restaurant, I don't just go ordering filet mignon... but anyways, it was really good. Now I'm just finishing my laundry and shit so that I can get back up to school tomorrow... just what I want right?

border patrol...

So I'm back in New Baltimore for the weekend... which feels really odd, it's my first time home since the semester started. But I've already been confronted with the comforts of home... low flying planes from the airbase, Starbucks with Scotty and of course, border patrol. I realized today that I've been seeing border patrol hanging around the NB area forever, but I never really realized why they are here. That makes me sound crazy, obviously I live on the edge of the state, dangerously close to the Canadian border (and maybe I've crossed it illegally before, but that's neither here nor there)... I guess I just never saw the threat of Canadians hopping the border.

The last few weeks have been ridiculous. I'm trying to pull my shit together though, I'd give anything to get out of this funk I seem to have fallen into. Good news? I'm making my Halloween Costume for next weekend and it's Cruella Di Vil. I'm stoked. I really just have to find a crazy black dress from a thrift store and I'm golden.

Peace out.

I'm going to update soon... I swear. Life has been kicking my ass lately. But for now, I'm going to go to sleep.
