Valentine's Day

I didn't do much for Valentine's Day this year. I got to spend time with my Valentine, but I didn't make him make a big deal out of it like I did last year. Might of had something to do with the fact that I was working and then going to school all day this year.

I did make him give me a present though: my key to his house (:

I've decided that from now on, if I want a present of sorts from Chris, I'll just let him know what he's supposed to give me. He said that works for him, so I have to think up ideas for next year, haha.

Anywho. This post, though it is so titled as "Valentine's Day," is actually about the day after Valentine's Day. I was working at Walmart doing my demo for Windows 8 and I saw that all the Valentine's Day candy was on sale. And really, how can you resist candy that is on sale? I decided to get a tub of Valentine Corn. Yeah, it's just like Candy Corn around the Halloween, only colored pink for Valentine's Day!

The next day, as I was munching on Valentine Corn and packing up my things to move to Chris's house, I noticed one of the pieces was deformed. How disappointing.

But as I took a closer look, this piece of corn amazed me by how perfectly deformed it was. What a coincidence that this piece of corn should have been made into Valentine Corn, for it was perfectly heart shaped on the bottom!

Just goes to prove that first impressions can be deceiving! I thought this was an ugly piece of Valentine Corn that just happened into my bucket, but it was a actually quite beautiful... for a piece of candy corn haha

Yes, that piece of corn made my day.

A Turn of Events

Janurary was quite possibly one of the worst months I've ever had.

My heart was broken, my grandpa had a stroke (twice), I killed a dog with my car, and to top it off, I failed a midterm by completely forgetting about it. What a great way to start a new year. A friend on Twitter told me, after one of the many times I tweeted a complaint about 2013, "Don't condemn it just yet. This is just overflow from 2012, the shittiest year ever. Keep your chin up!" I didn't think she could possibly be right, but February has taken an unexpected turn of events.

My heart has been mended. No, I suppose that's not right. It's evolved. I grew up a lot in January (more on that later). I was single for a month, and I enjoyed it, or I at least tried to; there were times when the mask of confidence and happiness would fall off and I would be left crying. Then Chris asked me to forgive him. Yes, we're back together again. Yes, we're moving in together. Attempting for this weekend actually. I know a lot of people have told me taking him back is the wrong thing to do, but how can I not give him another chance? He makes me happy. Period.

My grandpa is doing okay for the time being. He's home, he's walking, and he's smiling. We still have him. I don't know for how long, but he's here. His memory does tend to lapse sometimes and he doesn't remember me or where he's at, but for the most part he's doing pretty good... at the moment.

My car has been taped together (courtesy of my dad and brother) and I never saw the dog again. As for the final, I have yet to talk to my professor about it; I'm not sure if it would do any good. "Excuse me professor, I failed the exam because I forgot about it and didn't study at all, would you mind giving me another go at it?" I don't see that happening, but who knows. Maybe she'll help me out a bit if I tell her about my crummy January.

As for my New Year Resolution, it has also evolved. My goal was to move out in January. As you can probably tell, that hasn't happened yet. With all that's happened though, I'm okay with that. I've also taken up a 2nd job. Two jobs, school, and all the crap that's happened in the last month. I'm okay with the fact that  the big move hasn't happened yet. But as I said earlier. It is going to happen. I'm moving in with Chris (hopefully this weekend if I'm not too busy). February is not that far off from January, and heck, it's a lot farther than 2014 which is the deadline, so I think I've done pretty well so far (:

Here's to hoping that the 2012 runoff is finished and I'll be able to move forward in my life.
