PHOTO #89: My New Cool Vest

This is the new vest I got today! I’m super excited about it, it’s really awesome. There’s not much else I can say about it. The brand name on it is Vero Moda…

So today we had a big celebrity come into the theatre: Carly Rae Jepsen! I’m not a fan of her recent stuff, yes it is catchy, but also not really my style of music. But I do love her first album, the song Tug of War was my favourite back when it came out. I was pretty excited that she came in, I haven’t seen many big celebrities recently. It was sort of a weird event though. It was held in the VIP and they had about three people that won a contest and then each of them got to bring around ten or so of their friends, and they got to see a movie with her…and the movie they watched was Life of Pi. Now, I’m sure that is a great movie, I have no doubt seeing the crowds that are still piling in to see it. But if I were watching a movie with a celebrity I don’t know if that would be it. Either way, it was a cool gesture. And it would have been a pretty exciting event for those lucky winners…if CRJ had shown up on time. But no, as all celebrities do, as though it’s some rule they have to follow to be in the celebrity crowd, she was half an hour late. And she came in with about four big burly security guards.

 Now I’m no expert when it comes to celebrities, but isn’t that a bit excessive? I mean for one she’s Canadian. For two, she’s a singer with two hit songs…is she really in that much danger at a movie theatre? I mean, Steven Tyler wandered in off the street like it was nobody’s business last week (no, I wasn’t working :(…) and didn’t have any sort of protection. And then after the film wandered down Yonge street to-and I’m only guessing here-attend and perform at his own concert that night at the Air Canada Centre…I suppose that’s one of the things with some celebrities. If you really want to be popular you have to make yourself seem more important.

Either way if they are famous I will usually get all excited just so I can tell my friends that I saw them in person. Even though I would like to think that I am all cool and collected around famous people. I’m totally not. But there’s just a certain atmosphere some celebrities bring around with them that changes the way you react around them.

And I guess that my realization for the day is that there’s a big difference between celebrities, some of them just want to hear their music played on the radio, and others just want to play their music.

That’s just my opinion though.

PHOTO #76: Best Friends

So, I finally went out on Monday! Woohoo, my first time in over a month. I had a great time. We drank a lot…we talked a lot….and we cried a little. Yea. It’s hard not to bring up what you are most emotional about at the time when you’re most drunk.

I have known these two ladies since I was four years old. It’s going on nineteen years now! We’ve had our ups and downs. Treated each other not so greatly. But, in the end, we gravitate back together. It’s hard not to when there’s so much history there. We’ve been through life changing events together. Life, death, and everything in between. We went to the same elementary school (JK to 8) and the same highschool. I think we’ve stayed pretty close through all of it. I mean that’s a bond that really can’t be broken. There’s no way to forget 19 years of your life, really. We’ve helped each other through hard times, and supported one another’s decisions, no matter how wrong we may have thought they were.

I kind of want to do a before and after photo collage of us. Because I know there’s a picture of just the three of us when we’re around five or six, and I just spent a long time looking for it, with no luck. But I know it’s around somewhere. I think that would be a fun thing to see. How we’ve changed, and how we’ve stayed the same. So that’s one of my next craft ideas…we’ll see if I actually finish this one…

Accomplishment of the day: Going outside on my day off and having a social life!

PHOTO #70: My New Jacket

Today I went into work with a positive attitude. I thought “Yes, it’s Tuesday but I can handle this.” Tuesdays are cheaper at the theatre, which means in some ways they are busier than the actual opening weekend for a film. It all went down hill as I was about to swipe in for my shift. Everything went wrong, all at the same time. We were way understaffed and I was way over tired. So, beginning of shift: sucked. Mid-shift: Not so bad. Got lots done. End of shift: Shitty. Got yelled at by a woman (a college professor of mine, though she didn’t recognize me) because the box office was being slow..and other things I don’t feel like getting into.

My point being:

When I finally swiped out I was feeling not so good, and needed some Retail Therapy. It seriously helped. I haven’t been shopping or bought anything in a while. So, I figured I owed it to myself. I bought this awesome jacket at H&M of course. It was on sale for 30% off. It’s not, strictly speaking, a winter jacket, but it will get me through the next couple of weeks. Before the real cold weather kicks in. I also don’t tend to get cold very easily, so that will help the wearability longevity…does that make sense?

Either way, I am in LOVE with it, and can’t wait to wear it.

I have four minutes to post this so I will finish with: Oh my gosh I made it to 70 posts straight!!!!! I should celebrate…with more shopping 😀 .

PHOTO #68: Remembrance Day

This is all I have to show for the day. It was the worst of the past three days at work. I was not in the mood to deal with everyone not knowing what they’re doing, and yet still had to deal with it. It’s hard. I feel myself being more like who I used to be. Bitter, angry, always frustrated. I have managed to stay away from that mood for almost a year. I know that nothing good can come out of me being all mopey, and upset about everything. But, how am I supposed to stay positive? I do my job, and I do it well, and there’s little to no appreciation. I can only live like that for so long before it takes its toll on me. And then there’s those employees that will complain to me about their shift, or how they’ve been working so long, and they’re tired. Am I just supposed to pretend to feel bad for them? Because they had to stand there and push buttons on a till for a couple of hours? Because I don’t feel bad for them. I need to take this day off, and relax, because if I continue in this mind-set any longer I am going to snap at someone. And it’s going to get ugly.

I remember what it was about days like this that gets me down: No one calls on me just to talk, there’s always something that they need, something I have to fix, or something only I can do for them. It always ends up being work related. And I know that sounds weird to say. I mean I’m at work what else would I expect? But I see them hanging out with each other during their shifts and they call me over to ask me to get them their pay stubs.

On a more positive side Gary Oldman came to see a film today! I’m not sure which one but I didn’t really care, all I got to see was him exiting the theatre anyways. I am such a huge fan of his, so it was awesome to see him.

It was remembrance day. I should mention since that is what my photo is about. It’s funny I’ve had the Poppy on my jacket for a couple of weeks now, and since I got it I’ve noticed everyone that was wearing one. Before I put mine on I didn’t notice anyone wearing one. I think I will continue to leave it on for a bit, it’s started to get a bit knocked around though, so I am kind of worried it will fall off at some point. Hopefully not.

PHOTO #56: Fall Outfit Number…I Don’t Remember

Here’s what I wore today. The jacket is new, I was so excited to finally wear it. It was a sale piece from Urban Outfitters. The moment I saw it I wanted it. The moment I put it on there was no way I was putting it down. It fit perfectly, and looked awesome on. Kinda preppy with a messy vibe, I guess. Other than the jacket you have seen everything else on me before. The necklace was not clear the last time I wore it, so now you can see it for real…sort of. It’s one of my pieces, made of clay.

I missed seeing a famous person at work…twice. Michael Keaton (Batman, Beetlejuice) came in yesterday, on my day off! And then again this morning. 😦 Oh well. Hopefully when we have Lincoln exclusively (yea, that’s right) some famous people that live in Toronto will come to see it.

I have barely done anymore of my Halloween costume…I was working on my sisters for her. Yea, so now I’ve done some for my brother AND my sister. I’m still pretty sure it will only take me a short time to do mine, so I’m not worried. My friend also gave me some fake eyelashes that are going to look great, they are so long it’s insane. Not sure I’ll be able to open my eyes with them on…Anyways I have to get up at a decent hour if I want to work on this thing. Consider this me going to bed early. Even though it’s 3am…

PHOTO #44: Tomorrows Outfit

I bought some new clothes from H&M today, while shopping with my sister. And have decided that I am wearing both things I bought tomorrow. She said, she was going to buy this dress and be a Dalmatian for Halloween, but I love it. Though that would be an adorable costume. I haven’t tried these pieces on together, so hopefully the length of the sweater goes well with the length of the dress. And, of course my hair will clash with it. But, I think it will be okay. And if not I’ll put it in a bun or something. On second thought I might wear it the day after tomorrow, since I don’t have anywhere to be tomorrow. I might stay home and craft something.

I watched Pitch Perfect for the second time finally! It has been about a week of me trying to find someone to go with, and people bailing, which I’m used to. It was just as good the second time ’round. And I caught a couple of things I missed the first time. Which is awesome.

Another one of those habits that I really should break but don’t want to, is staying up late. Some days it’s fine. And I can wake up early in the morning no problem. But, sometimes I screw myself over. Like this morning. I stayed up until 4am last night, but had to get up around 10 to get ready for work today. I slept through my loud obnoxious alarm that it right beside my face, somehow. And woke up at 11:20. To make it to work for 12 I usually need an hour. So, I was freaking out. I managed to get up, dressed, and out of the house in 3 or 4 minutes. The bus came right away at 11:25, and I made it to work on time. Tired, and Hungry, but on time. Lucky, for once.

So, maybe I’ll try kicking the ‘late nights’ habit…Tomorrow…:D

PHOTO #36: Another Fall Outfit

As I said I would do yesterday, I went to see Pitch Perfect today. Yay for following through with plans! And I loved it! It was everything I hoped it would be. We (my sister and I, and everyone else in the theatre) were laughing through the entire thing. In a couple of scenes it was clear that the audio was not synced up perfectly with the singing, but I pushed that out of my mind, because the whole movie was just so great. Rebel Wilson was the funniest character in the movie. She plays a character much like all her other movie roles, but her one liners and quick punny replies are what had everyone laughing.

Other than that, today was very productive! I went to the dollar store to finally dish out the 16 + tax for the cork board. And I had it in my hands ready to pay, when I made the best discovery ever! I saw foam board. Now, it’s not that I didn’t know what that was, I’ve used it in school. I just never thought of it for this project. It was the same thickness as the cork board I was about to buy, and one board (about 20″ by 30″) cost me $1.25. In all it cost me about $5.50 for the area I needed to cover. Which is more than ten dollars less that I would have paid, had I gone with the corkboard. So, that was exciting. It did involve a lot of taping and some stapling, but I got it done! And it looks great, it takes up my whole wall, but it looks great.

This is what I wore today. Sorry for the graininess, apparently my iPhone camera = not so much better than my BB camera. Oh well. I felt like going lazy today. As my sister and I decided, I was going for a Hobo-Chic look. I hated the way these pants looked when they were tucked into my boots, so I rolled them up thinking it would no look better, and when I put my boots on I was pleasantly surprised. It was chilly outside, and I couldn’t bear to go out without my big comfy scarf. I had to dust it off a bit, my cat decided for a while that it was her new bed…
