500 Jackpot Bonus

Today's prompty prompt has to do with my favorite childhood memory. I'm pretty sure I've posted about it before but I'm also pretty sure that I deleted it when I got rid of 34051983450198345 posts that weren't really important so I'll write about it again.

It's a relatively short story but it's a memory I look back on with nothing but purely happy memories. I was in first grade and I was supposed to go to a field trip. It was some nature hike thing and I was pretty excited. My mom was supposed to wake me up early and she forgot about the field trip so when I woke up I was devastated. My mom told me that she'd drive me to meet up with them and so off we went. About halfway there she gave me the option of meeting up with my class or going to the Family Fun Center with her. I chose the second. We went, played games, went on the bumper boats, and had a blast. On the very last token I put in a game and I won the jackpot of 500 tickets. I ended up getting a stuffed kitty with my tickets as a memento of my awesome day. It seems like a such a simple day, but it's my absolute favorite memory.

I Kinda Have A Job Now & Other Things That Make Me Happy

I missed a couple of days posting, but I didn't forget about you! Friday I got called in for two interviews and offered both jobs. One was at Jo Ann's for 8.75 an hour and it was MAYBE 15 hours a week. That's not worth it in the least bit. The second job is at Walmart for like 11.60 an hour, it's also part time but I should be getting about 20 hours a week minimum and that's much better pay and hours so I'm working on accepting that job at the moment. I was supposed to go in today to pick up the papers for my drug test, but after waiting for an hour to be told the people in HR didn't even know I was there and that it would take 45 minutes to put together the paper work I told them I'd call before I came and come back tomorrow. A'int nobody got time for that. I'm really hoping to get a call back from the Boys and Girls home though. That's where I REALLY want to work. It's a job in the field I'm interested in working with high risk children and teenagers, it's great pay, and full time hours. I've got my fingers crossed but until then I'm moving forward with Walmart. It feels a bit like selling my soul, but at this point money is money and I need money.

Now how about that? I had an actual life update to post, like I actually had a life for a bit. My goodness how things can change. Anyways today's prompt thingy is things that make me happy and a lot of things make me happy. So here we go, a list.

Life Isn't About Quotes About Life

Okay then two blog posts in two days. HOW ABOUT THEM APPLES?! Today's prompt is my favorite quotes. I have a number of them so lets get to it. 

"Let go of the hatred that your harbor in your soul, I promise it won't kill you you are stronger than you know." -- A dude I met on Myspace YEARS ago wrote this and it spoke to me. I'm not sure why but I absolutely love it. 

"I like to see people reunited, I like to see people run to each other. I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can't tell fast enough, the ears that aren't big enough, the eyes that can't take in all of the change. I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone." -- This is from Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and frankly I just think it's beautiful and very, very true. 

"We are all a little weird, and life is a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." --Obviously, I'm weird so I love this. Enough said. 

"Look! Look what we can do. Look how fuckin' beautiful we are. You think the men that built all this had it easy?" -- Boondock Saints 2 is an awesome movie and while the entire speech was pretty awesome, this line has stuck with me. Life is hard, it's never going to be easy. But it's also beautiful and it wouldn't be beautiful without being hard. 

"My superheroes don't leap tall building, wear capes, or stop bullets with one hand; They bruise and bleed, and their superpowers are loving and listening." -- This is Abby from NCIS and it's fantastic. It's the everyday people that are heroes. 

And that's that. Tune in tomorrow for the THIRD post in three days! Holla.

I bought a new computer finally so I plan on getting more into blogging again. I know I've said that before but I guess you're just going to have to trust me huh? There's a chance I'll let you down again, but that's a risk you're just going to have to take if you still happen to read anything I post here. Obviously once I have my surgery I'll have more things actually regarding my life to post about, but until then you'll get some random content. For the past week I've been staying with my new Alaska BFF Ashley. Our husband's are both in the field right now so the doggies and me have been staying here with her and her two year old son Wyatt. He's pretty much in love with my puppies and it's adorable.

I've been upgraded to Auntie Becca and I'm pretty stoked about that, although as you can see in the above picture I've lost all privileges of going to the bathroom alone. I met Ashley on Facebook when I first moved to Alaska but in usual anti-social Becca fashion I managed to put off meeting her until I got back from California. She's PCSing soon and breaking my heart by leaving. I accepted an invitation to a party and pretty much spend every weekend here with her now. We have a lot of fun and it makes Melissa all sorts of jelly.

And now that that's out of the way I've decided that I'll be doing another blogging challenge because well... my life is boring and the only way I'm going to write is to have prompts. I lost interest in the 30 days 30 letters thing pretty quickly but nobody said this was going to be a good blog so... I mean... deal with it. Once upon a time I wanted to be a big blogger, but I decided I don't care enough about this to put in all that work. I only have five of you that read and comment relatively regularly anyways. So this challenge is for you guys! (One of them is my mom, hi Mom!) So I stole a blogging challenge from another blog and I'm going to follow that now. 

So today is a picture of me and five random facts. I recently dyed my hair a deep purple and it looks kind of plum color. As much as I'd love to show you a picture of it it's not showing up in pictures so I can't. Therefore here's an older picture of me instead. 


And now for your five random facts of the day.

  1. I skipped Kindergarten, was held back in first because I wasn't emotionally mature enough to be in second grade, and skipped sixth grade as well. I was a smart cookie, then the internet was invented and I wasted all of my time looking at ICanHasCheezeburgers and got dumb.
  2. I still have a baby tooth, 25 years old and I'm holding onto my childhood tooth and nail. *ba dum tis*
  3. When I can't think of a word or what somethings call I use filler sounds and charades. Grab me the *chert chert* *makes spray bottle movement* which obviously means I want the Febreeze. 
  4. I think it would be a lot of fun to work in a sex shop. 
  5. I have never seen the Star Wars trilogy. 
The end.
