Sunday Stealing



Today we ripped this meme off a blogger known as Little Bark from the blog The Tree Unleashed She explains that she found it over at The Tree of Life. It appears it originated on that blog. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. It’s time for Sunday Stealing!


Cheers to all of us thieves!

Sunday Stealing: The Pretentious Blogging Meme

1. How long have you been blogging?

My first Blogger Blog was started in Dec 2006/ but I think I only posted one time on it. I have random Facebook/MySpace  blogs but nothing serious until now.

2. What made you start?

I really got into reading some blogs and I wanted to give it a try, but I knew my life would never be as exciting as Keely’s, or Mama Kat’s, or Ashley’s, So I mainly started so that I could comment non-anonymously.

3. Who inspired you?

Ashley over at Ashley’s Closet, Mama Kat’s blog and Keely’s Randomness, I loved it all.

4. About how many hours a week would you estimate you spend on your blog?

on my own blog? Probably about 15 or so a week, but I spend a lot more time than I should online.

5. What kind of experience or background do you have with writing?

I wrote journals and diaries growing up, plus I tried to write some fiction but I never can seem to actually finish it.

6. Talk about how you come up with blog topics. Where do you get your ideas?

I get my ideas from all sorts of places, Meme’s, inner angst, friends, school, work, I just try to pull ideas from everywhere.

7. What or who inspires you and your blog?

I get inspired by the life around me, sometimes its because I want to be less involved and sometimes I desperately wish I was more involved.
8. Where and/or how do your brainstorming for your blog?

I brainstorm during classes and when I am sitting down looking at an empty post page.

9. Do you have any blogging rules or guidelines you follow?

I just have a rule about commenting really, I love comments and I try to post as many as I can on other’s blogs. Blogging not so much, If I offend people I am sorry but that’s my opinion and well, this IS my blog.

10. Is there anything you will not blog about?

I don’t really have a taboo topic although I try to stay away from Religion and Politics, I figure if I wouldn’t talk about it at dinner then maybe I should keep it off my blog as well.

11. Do you have any sort of a publishing schedule in terms of day of week or topic?

lol that’s funny, I don’t I post when I want to say something, I try to stay regular but as you can see from post history I get caught up in the real world sometimes, (Plus interesting stuff doesn’t always happy to me)

Thank you for playing this week on Sunday Stealing! Please leave a comment or link. Have a great week.

Oh Hush 12:10 in the Morning is Tuesday!



It is 12:10 am and that makes today Tuesday and that makes it time for Random Tuesday Thoughts With Keely!!!


I don’t think well when I am sleepy.

These are the thoughts I just had, while having a conversation with Kensei…


I have a pillow,

him: ok

Its fluffy


i can’t breathe with it on my face

that happens when you try to suffocate yourself

hmm its Tuesday


i need to go to the couch


the computer is there


Although I could bring the laptop here…


I need to stop cussing


end conversation (well as of now)


Its been a while  since the last RTT that I did, I am glad to be getting back into blogging again.


Did you know that Twilight was being made into a graphic novel?? yes you can order the Manga that will have all the girls swooning.. well the preteen ones anyways, I might get it because it’s on sale for 10.00 and I like Manga…


So my friends JUST texted me to ask me to txt her step-father a random txt… so this is a morning for random.


I changed my blog layout and I like this one the girl is very pretty and it is reflecting the mood I have been in lately.


Okay so that’s the end of my Early morning Randomness I hope you enjoyed it! Drop on over to Keely’s and see other people’s Random Thoughts too!!

The one where She wonders if She's Making the Right Choice..

Okay well I have been MIA for a while now I know, This seems to happen every break, I am not sure If I just don't think I am entertaining enough or what. This is going to be a long one sorry... but I kind of need to vent and maybe a Little advice.

So as I have said a ton of times I will soon be relocating to Memphis TN. I am scared about this, because well Kensei and I have been Fighting A LOT lately not, you know huge arguments but little ones that stress me out because well if we are like this apart what will happen when we are together and driving each other crazy with little things we never noticed before?

I am leaving all of my friends and family to go up there, where all I will know is him and have a slight acquaintance with his friends most of whom I honestly don't really like.

I also have been questioning our relationship, I will be the first to admit I am stubborn to a fault, and because I got so much grief about dating him the first time have I stuck it out this long because I don't want them to be proven right? I have also always been a romantic, naive, fairy tale kinda girl, am I being so stubborn because I WANT my happily ever after?

We had another argument tonight, it wasn't even really an argument, I was working and it's Sunday, on Sunday's he goes out with his friends until WAY late o'clock, and I usually don't complain, although he gets pissed when he calls at 4am (last weekend) and I am asleep so I do this thing where I mumble a lot of noncommittal answers and I love yous every time he says something. (In my defense I had been at work since six am that morning, got off at 12 so I was tired!)
But anyways back to today, he called me at work, I was super happy to talk to him, and let him know that I had found a new show I like, and he casually mentions "Have I been keeping up with the weather there?" I say no but I can check the computer, and let him know its supposed to storm there latter, and then I start talking to him, his friends are in the background and one made a comment that They Told Him So, and I was like huh?
His response was one of his friends said that if he called me I would want to talk and he just wanted the weather report from me... Well this KINDA pissed me off because well I mean I am not the freakin weather channel, so I guess my voice got a little tense and he made the comment well I do tend to call three or four times on Sunday.. and I do usually when I get off work, about and hour later and when I am going to bed, okay maybe that's a little obsessive but that's me. Of course his comment made me even more angry so I told him to go play with his friends and call me when ever he felt like it,
which then caused us to get into an argument over whether or not I was Pissy. When I get Pissy the best thing is for me to be left alone to cool off not to have someone saying You sound pissy we just had this conversation about you saying you aren't something when you clearly are. and so I told him very calmly Go play with your friends I love you call me later. and hung up...

Now he never says I love you back unless I am there or he feels bad about something (The 4 am phone call for instance, he said I love you on that one when he was calling me to say he was leaving and on his way home ) this upsets me and he knows it.

I just don't really know what to do any more, I have been told that It's just me, I don't like change, and I hate it when things change around me. They say it's because I don't like to lose control. They point to the fact I have stuck with jobs I HATE because I didn't have anything else to go to, and I can't not work, its to ingrained in me. (This one I have now and the waitress job I had before.) That If I am not forced into the change I won't let it happen to me. That I am scared and worried. And I am scared, I mean I am taking a big step, moving out to move in with a guy, something I swore I would never do when I was younger, because "Good Girl's Don't"

Not a lot of my real life friends read this blog and I am glad for that because what I show on the outside doesn't always reflect what is going on in the inside..

I have been sitting here typing this and listening to one of the songs I tend to listen to when I get pensive, and a lot of the lines are ringing bells in this song today... "Love is not a victory march, it's a cold and a broken Hallelujah," and "maybe there's a god above and all i ever learned from love was how to shoot at someone who out drew you..."

So here's two versions of that song for your viewing pleasure.
