I accidentally went to a pet adoption event on Saturday and one of the Humane Society dudes let me snuggle with a kitten for a while and I was so happy and then my friend’s dog barked at it and I wanted to kill myself.
Is this real life?
The other day I wanted Mexican food so I called someone up and I asked if she wanted to go out and eat Mexican food with me and she replied, “Ooh yeah, I love Taco Bell!” as if ‘Mexican food’ implicitly suggests Taco Bell which was both upsetting and confusing so I
cried for hours said, oh no I meant like go to an actual Mexican restaurant - I looked a up a few downtown that look pretty good but she insisted, “No, if we’re getting Mexican food then I only want to go to Taco Bell; if we go anywhere else I won’t order anything.” so I cried some more frowned and went to bed.
…and that is the story of the time that I still want Mexican food. ;_;
my tombstone will read:
here lies colleen

Yesterday was one of the greatest and most bizzaro days of my entire life. :’)
Suddenly, good things! :O
HEY GUESS WHAT —
- I’m getting a free carnival pass tonight! :}
- My best friend is visiting home (from across the world) for a while.
- I GET TO VISIT HOME FOR LIKE A WEEK.
- I get to go to a kickass music festival with aforementioned bfffffff.
- I was out of town for her 15th, but I’m not missing baby sister’s 16th(!!! oh m’lawd) birthday next week.
Above all else, I GET A WEEK’S WORTH OF FAMILY AHHHH. I can’t wait to stay up all night playing video games with my siblings, eat my momma’s cooking, celebrate my baby sister’s 16th(!!!) birthday, see my brother and his fiance as fiances and not just boyfriend/girlfriend (I’ve seen a picture of the ring and I want to see it irl ok it looks VERY pretty and tasteful and classy and wow I’m just very impressed with my brother!) and have fun with them. Plus it’ll just be really good to get away from school (yes I’ve only been back for a week hush) because I just can’t really stand being here.
Yeah so all that good stuff but mostly I just need my mom and my dad and my siblings and our cat. Forever plz&ty. :’)
Oh and on the last day of the family vacation (Friday the 13th!) my brother left early with his girlfriend and he took her somewhere nice and romantic AND THEN HE PROPOSED TO HER AND SHE SAID YES AHHHHHHHHHH!!!
I’m at the beach with my (entire extended) family and it’s wonderful and amazing and I haven’t been this happy in a long time. This is always the best week of the year, and I’m nothing short of ecstatic that I got to come.
I guess not getting that job was a blessing in disguise, huh?
Every day is nothing but family, ocean, pool, card games, board games, good breakfasts, great lunches, even better dinners, and yeah just endless time with family. It’s kinda a week of Christmases… only summery. Oh! Plus my cousin and her husband had a baby in October, so we even get to have a baby around doing baby stuff this year!!!
It kinda bothers me when I say “I’m going to the annual, week-long family reunion.” and people react by offering their condolences. UHH JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE A BIG DUMB BABY WHO DOESN’T APPRECIATE THEIR FAMILY DOESN’T MEAN THAT WE ALL ARE SO SHUT UP YOU BIG DUMB BABY.
Yeah so I’m exceedingly, overwhelmingly happy, and I’m probably gonna have a breakdown when I have to leave because holy moly I just love my family so much I can’t even find words to express it. :’D
Ok so I went to the grocery store for Grandpa and he went ballistic when he realized that I had the audacity to pay the bill so he insisted that he write me a check and he looked at the receipt which was $14.42 and then he wrote me a check… for $14.42 exactly. :’)
I lost the salt…
Why am I even allowed to live on my own.
I really felt like cooking tonight but I ran errands with a friend and she just wanted to eat out somewhere so I just went with her and now I’m home and I still really feel like cooking even though I’m not hungry SIGH WHAT A DIFFICULT LIFE I LEAD.
HAPPY JOB STUFF
I had my second interview (after pre-employment testing + initial interview) today for the job I want and originally they said that they were hiring for the 9:00pm - 7:30am shift on Thursdays through Sundays and I cried when I got home (yes really) because if I did that + school at least Mondays through Thursdays I could literally never visit home ever again and I’d pretty much rather not be alive if the alternative is not ever seeing my family BUT IT TURNS OUT they are actually hiring for a few different shifts and they must have really liked me because they let me pick which one I wanted so if I get the job I will probably only have to work Mondays through Thursdays from 4:00pm - 2:30am which would be so wonderful that I would probably cry again.
I honestly hate the feeling of ‘having a crush’ on someone I don’t understand people who are like “omg I luv dat feelin of butterflyz<3” because I do NOT enjoy it at all the whole experience just feels really uncomfortable to me and like I’m gonna be sick or something.
