No Games This Time

I'm not going to pretend like I have forgotten about you again. 

I have not. 

In fact, every time I get on the computer, the little Blogger bookmark stares me in the face. It looks at me and says "come write!" 

But I don't know what to write about. I see that blinking cursor and I freeze up. Every intelligent thought goes out of my head, and I get anxious even thinking about trying to write. Nothing is good enough for this little blog of mine. 

I don't know what this blog is, or what it's meant to be. I originally wanted something to do all day when I was at home and out of work. I wanted to try and make a little extra money on the side, and make some new friends. 

Don't get me wrong, I have done these things.

But at the same time, so much has changed. 

I don't even look like my display picture here anymore. 

I don't even feel like y'all every got to know me. 

So in the dawn of a new age for this blog (and potentially a new name and layout), I'm going to let you get to know me.

Howdy, I'm Heather.

I have teal hair. For now.
I scream when I like things or people tell me things that they like that I also like. 
I work at Wegmans as a dishwasher.
I am a history major and yes, I will drag you to that boring historical place you don't want to go.
I am very random and my thoughts (and conversations) are all over the place.
I love my family.
I'm obsessed with: corgis, mason jars, iced tea, the color teal, pugs, tumbler cups, books, makeup, and stationary.
I forget things really easily.
I have a few favorite places: Ocean City, NJ; Washington, D.C.; Red Bank Battlefield Park; Philadelphia; and anywhere I can go with my boyfriend, Bill.
I love to write.
I love to make things with my hands.
I don't know what I want to be when I grow up.
I'm miserable at being an adult.
I buy too many books and spend too much time on the internet or at Target.
I turn into a giant mushball when I see any sort of dog, and they are all puppies to me.
I also enjoy taking pictures.

So there you have it. That's a look in to me. I hope to, in the coming weeks, redesign this blog and give it a new name. To breath new life into it. To not worry so much about what it is.

What you can expect next:
A little bit of everything...
Day trips.
History stuff.
Short story blips.
Everyday life? 
Who knows! It'll be a Pandora's box of a blog, I suppose.

Until next time, my friends...

Consistently Inconsistent.

I haven't forgotten about you, little blog, and followers. (Are there even any followers left besides my mom?) You come into my mind almost daily when I think "this would make a good blog post," or "it's been over a year now that I started blogging, I really should write a post about that." The best laid plans of mice and men, right? I always have the best of intentions to sit down and write about something—a little update, a small event I went to, something, but I always get distracted.

I think I kind of shot myself in the foot a little when I branded this blog as a DIY blog. Even when I first started writing, most of what I did was recipes (not DIY). Something that blocks me from writing, I think, is just that. This is a DIY blog. I don't feel like I can just write whatever on here. When I have more time to sit down and actually tinker with my blog, I'm probably going to rebrand as more of a lifestyle thing. Until then, an update, I suppose.

Christmas was good. I got a lot a cool presents, like a Tarte makeup set, and a set of one-of-a-kind drinking glasses that have chalkboard on them so I can write stuff on the glasses. A very meaningful gift that I got from Bill's mom was a double feature DVD with White Christmas and It's A Wonderful Life, two of my favourite Christmas movies.

College is just taking too much of my time up to do anything. As it is right now, I'm procrastinating speech homework due in class in an hour. I should really get on doing that. but for the recap part, I finished my first semester with a 4.0! How I did that, I don't even know. But I'm still proud to say I did it, and hope that I can do it again this semester.

I'm still working Wegmans, and just recently started working in the new Godiva shop that we have within us now. Tomorrow is the grand opening and my first real day in the shop. It's pretty exciting.

I've been going to the gym and made a new best friend through that gym and we're pretty much soul mates and I love her and oh my god brain twins. "Hi, I'm Mr. Meeseeks, look at me!"

Speaking of going to the gym, Bill is being a really great help and motivator. He says for every ten pounds I lose, he'll buy me one new article of clothing. A new top, a new pair of pants, new workout shoes. Whatever. And then when I hit my goal weight, he said he would restock my entire wardrobe. HOW BIG OF A MUSH IS HE?! I'm so grateful that I have the loving and supportive boyfriend that I do. He just turns me into soup, I feel so warm and fuzzy.

I think I've hit on every point... Mostly I just wanted to drop in to say hey, I miss you guys and I'm working on actually sitting down and getting my shit together and making this blog work. 2014 is my year and I won't let things fall by the wayside. That being said, it's time for class, gotta bolt!

College Life

*blows the dust off of the blog*
Well, hello all! It's been a while since I've actually had time to sit down and do a post. I had planned to do a post about depotting Bath and Body Works candles (or really, any candle, but these have the best jars), but of course, now that I want the candle to burn down a lot, it is burning so slowly! I still plan to do that post, I just have to wait until this candle gets to that point. In case anyone was wondering, the candle is "Apple Crumble." So good! I hit up BBW today to find the candle I wanted, Pumpkin Caramel Latte, but they were sold out, and only sell them online for now :(

Anyway, since I have made some college posts before, I thought I would give guys a little update on how that's going.

I won't lie, I'm a little over it.

Really late updates, woo!

Well, howdy, y'all! It's been a while. I say this every time I fall off the face of the blogging world, and I don't know why I do it. I know I've been gone, and I really do mean to post, but 10,000 other things seem to take precedence for some reason. But they're good things!

I don't plan on this being in order of importance, but rather whatever comes to mind first.

So, anyone out there have a Bath & Body Works candle that you love, but it gets down to that teeny little quarter-inch of wax left that you can no longer burn? Do you also have a wax warmer? Well then, you're in luck! I have a post coming up as soon as I burn through my next BBW candle on how to depot them so that you can use the jar for whatever you please AND still use the leftover wax for scent still. I depotted one, but forgot to take pictures, so... Better to do another one to with pictures. Unless you would like to see a video of me doing it? Comment down below and let me know what you guys are thinking!

On top of that, I recently started school. It hasn't been so bad, actually. I love my history professor. She seems pretty on par with my high school history teacher (who was the best history teacher, ever). My math professor is a lot like my high school math teacher in the way that he is really old, and he says "okay" after most things he says, just like my old math teacher did.
After my first Tuesday class, I went to talk to the professor running the school newspaper to try and join, and to make a long story short... In the matter of 30 minutes, he professed his love for me and made me the Lifestyle Editor for the paper! Good kickoff to school, don't ya think?! I'm pretty proud of that one.

Another great thing that happened, too, was that I landed a dog walking job. Oh my great golly gosh, these are some of the cutest puppies I've ever seen. Sweet, too. and the people I'm working for are so nice! My one boss reminds me of John Green, mixed with Hank a little (not a bad thing, in case you see this, Jack!) I have yet to meet his wife though. It's like she's the Yeti! And now I have officially lost everyone who isn't a nerdfighter.

Anyway, I think that's it for tonight. I'm pretty pooped and I have to be up at at 6:45 for class. I promise that my posts will be less few and far between. Perhaps the next post will be of the craft I made for me new bosses! Hope all is well you you tonight—
