WOW! I haven't posted in forever. Probably because my life has been a bit of everything, good/wonderful/bad/really bad. Just like everyone else I guess, because a lot of my friends and such are having some problems as well.

Being someones fiance is wonderful! It's nice to know that I always have someone, no matter what. Even when I give him BIG bruises (I was just playing around with him, honest!) he just laughs and thinks it's funny, since I have such bony arms and no upper-body strength. That part of my life is great.

I had a pretty bad work week last week. I was late to work twice, which is a huge deal to me because I hate being late to anything. I was late almost an hour the other day due to a misunderstanding in the schedule, and then when I finally got to work I ended up breaking two glasses, making wrong drinks, had a terrible runny noise, and it was a very busy day. Blah! It was not good.

My two best friends both have serious medical conditions, and both are not feeling too good. My friend who has pulmonary hypertension was beginning to feel better but she's starting to feel a little sick again. I'm praying that her medicine continues to work or else she may have to have a lung transplant. *is very scared* My other friend has something strange going on with her muscles. Her leg started hurting her and it was becoming inflamed, and now it's spread to her arm. The doctors don't know what it is yet, but it doesn't look good. Those girls are crazy tough, but a person can only take so much. We can only hope and pray.

I've had a slew of other family problems but I'm sick of talking about them. I need to talk about something good for a change.

Some fun this way...Collapse )

I went with my fiancee *smiles happily* today to take some pictures with my nice camera that I never use. He took some really dorky ones of me but I took some cute ones of him. :) You guys wanna see a few?

My dude...Collapse )

I wanted to post this yesterday after it happened, but I was just going crazy and I forgot to do lots of things. :) My boyfriend came into my work on Valentine's Day and he proposed to me!!! Gah!!! It was so perfect and so sweet, and I never expected it. We knew that we were going to get married one day, but I didn't have a ring (and I didn't really care too much about that. A ring is just a ring.) But he got me one and now we are officially engaged! 

The ring is so dainty and pretty! It's a thin, white gold band with a single, beautiful canary yellow diamond! It's just what I always wanted. *flails* 

I'm still in shock a bit. I always said that a ring doesn't matter, but it does make things different. Now when I tell people that I'm engaged they can actually see that I am. It's a great feeling. ^_^

I love you guys! I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day!!! When I started this LJ I was still under the impression that I would never get married or share my life with anyone, and now three years later it happened. *_* And the bonus is that I wasn't pregnant before it happened. LOL!!!

My computer has crashed. Well, the hard drive is doing something weird and it won't start up. I've looked around on my boy friend's comp, and the news doesn't sound good. I may be able to save my computer but I will probably loose all of the data that I've ever put on it. I didn't save/back up anything. I am as smart as they come. >:/

Does anyone know if Best Buy does payment plans? I need a new comp. anyway (my ruined desktop is 6 years old) but I don't have that kind of money right now. I could probably afford $200 a month, but I don't know if BB does that sort of thing. Any ideas?

On the bright side, I had a hellish week at school with projects, tests, quizzes, and the like, but it's over for now. I can relax again. And tomorrow is Valentine's Day!!! I'm actually looking forward to it this year. ;)

And how are my lovely friends doing? This has been a horrible month for planes you guys, so if anyone has any travel plans soon, be safe. *hugs everyone close*

Was FUCKING awesome. Damn, the action was great, the fighting was great, the storyline was bad ass, and Dakota Fanning says shit and damn... multiple times! Epic!

It was a lovely end of the day treat from my boyfriend after having a rather crappy morning.

Also, I am totally in love with Cartoon Network's relatively new show The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. If you watch it be warned, you will come close to pissing yourself from laughter. :)

I'm missing my 10:00 Stats class because I feel like shit, but I have to go to work because this week has been hectic and I can't afford to miss any days; I need all of the hours that I can get. I'm stressed because next week I have a big test, and project due, and now I have to learn today's Stats lesson on my own. Lovely. :/

My first Stats test is tomorrow at 10:00 am, and I haven't been studying. I am too easily tempted by other things. *cough*PHOTOSHOP!*cough*

I hope I pass! *flails and procrastinates more*

I wanted a little change. :) I wasn't going to do another Twilight header, but I love this picture. I had to play around with it.

I've got a busy week ahead. A project and a test in Stats, and two quizzes plus more reading for American History. Add work to the mix and family problems that are never ending, and that equals painful headache from hell.

My boyfriend's car has been vandalized. Someone driving by his house late last night threw a beer bottle from either on the street or in a car and it went right through his back wind shield. I'd like to kick the bastard who did this right in the mouth. :/

My Jams: Untouched - The Veronicas

I fucking love The Veronicas. Why haven't I heard their songs before? Oh yeah, cause my boyfriend doesn't have a radio in his car. *lol*

I saw Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans last night. Loved it! The romance was a bit down-played (I kinda wish that there had been more Lucian/Sonja moments), but the cinematography was great. The lycans' transformation was the best I've seen, and Sonja was the perfect lead. The actress who played her really looks like a vampire (and like Kate), and she's a hottie, so it worked. :) I don't think that they will make any more Underworld movies, but I would definitely see it if they did.

Hopefully I'll get to see Revolutionary Road sometime. It looks very real and emotional. I need to get away from the fantasy/Sci Fi stuff anyway. ^_-

Hello my loves!!! I had most of the afternoon to myself today, so I decided to make some icons, since I haven't in a while. It was great getting back into the swing of things, but my neck is killing me. Sitting at a computer desk for two hours really effs up your body. I feel like I've been crammed in a small box for days. Oh well, I missed Photoshop. :)

I need to make something other than Twilight icons. I need a new fandom. Any ideas guys?


Twilight related - 25 icons
Pride and Prejudice (Jane Bennet) - 2 icons
