a momentary break from homework to say...

Mango-lime cheesecake is love.

my declaration of independence

I don't want to sound arrogant or cocky in any sort of way but I've had at least a handful of guys hitting on me or "chasing after me" in one instance or another lately. To be honest, it's kind of annoying and I don't want any of it. Just let me be, please? I need to wear that a sign that says BACK OFF (kind of like those Yosemite Sam mudflaps for trucks). Yes, I have a friendly "approachable" personality but that doesn't necessarily mean I want to be approached. Both my Facebook and MySpace accounts say I'm "looking for friendship." I'm not sure if I even want that because I have a hard enough time keeping up with my friends sometimes. I really just want to focus on my education, my career, my awesome friends, and my wonderful family. So don't pressure me on "settling down" (it's not like I party a ton anyways) or on dating someone. Yes, there's someone I'm crushing on somewhat and I don't get to see him a lot but when I see him or hear from him - it totally makes me smile. So there.



Single by Natasha Bedingfield
Ah yeah that's right
All you single people out there
This is for you

I'm not waitin' around for a man to save me
(Cos I'm happy where I am)
Don't depend on a guy to validate me
(No no)
I don't need to be anyone's baby
(Is that so hard to understand?)
No I don't need another half to make me whole

Make your move if you want doesn't mean I will or won't
I'm free to make my mind up you either got it or you don't

[Chorus:]
This is my current single status
My declaration of independence
There's no way I'm tradin' places
Right now a star's in the ascendant

I'm single
(Right now)
That's how I wanna be
I'm single
(Right now)
That's how I wanna be

Ah yeah Uh Huh that's right

Don't need to be on somebody's arm to look good
(I like who I am)
I'm not saying I don't wanna fall in love 'cos I would
I'm not gonna get hooked up just 'cos you say I should
(Can't romance on demand)
I'm gonna wait so I'm sorry if you misunderstood

[Chorus]

Everything in it's right time everything in it's right place
I know I'll settle down one day
But 'til then I like it this way it's my way
Eh I like it this way

Make your move if you want doesn't mean I will or won't
I'm free to make my mind up you either got it or you don't
'Til then I'm single

This is my current single status
My declaration of independence
There's no way I'm tradin' places
Right now a star's in the ascendant



Also, to be perfectly honest - relationships scare the hell out of me. The whole male species pretty much terrifies me. I tend to become anxious and nervous when approached and when I'm being hit on, I usually want to run far, far, away. I'm very flighty and finicky. I've only felt truly comfortable with only a few guys in my life and even then things didn't really work out because of my own issues and self-doubts. But for now, whatever happens will happen. Don't push me. I'll decide if I want to chase you back and chances are I probably won't.

And this has been my philosophy of sorts as of lately: Let go and let God. It just makes sense to me.

Sunny Sundays...

Today's been an absolutely gorgeous day. It's been so nice to be off work and relax. I went to a picnic with some friends from church and it was wonderful to catch up with everyone. Of course it's now time to crack the whip and do some marketing homework... I'm due back at work at 11:00am though. *yawn*

I did take some pix this afternoon, my dad's bathroom has some pretty decent lighting (I need to play with my camera settings but I took these in about 10 minutes) and the last three are by the window in my living room. So you can view the gallery at my LJ Scrapbook.

The boy's suddenly gone MIA. :-( Must call him to see what's going on... I hope he just had a busy weekend at work and nothing serious is up. *fingers crossed* I've met someone actually worth caring about and I don't wanna mess it up.

As many of you may know, I'm quite the bargain shopper...

I picked up these flip-flops but in a nice muted gunmetal color and a cute little blue and silver striped tank at Target yesterday. This week at Nordstrom I picked up these totally adorable camo bermuda shorts with some embrodiered accents (which are capris on me since I'm only 5'1"), a black lace trimmed racer-back tank, a black v-neck cap sleeve sweater, and some cute black/gold/grey earrings - ALL OFF THE SALE RACKS!!! Score. I figured I'd get my shopping fix in now because I'll be saving up for my fall tuition.

Thankfully I'm off today after a 9-day stretch of work... *yawn* I slept in this morning and I've done some laundry. Now I'm overdue for a shower and some principles of marketing homework. I'm off again on Sunday but I've got a picnic to go to so I'm super excited about that!

Where it's at...

One of my dear friends has created an account here and in order for me to comment on her entries, I myself needed an account on Blogger/BlogSpot as well. So that's why I'm here...

I may occassionally post an entry or two but the two above blogs are my first loves of sorts.

In other news, Principles Of Marketing is a pain in my rear but I've got a "B" so far and my first exam is Tuesday! Life is pretty good right now though with the occasional ups and downs. But hey, that's life... right?
