I will be working on a new project soon, I haven’t been able to start it yet because my laptop got really messed up and took me about 3 days to fix. I’m still trying to get everything in order. Once it’s finished, I will post the link.
I haven’t received any entries for the contest yet, which is kind of disappointing. Remember that if you want to enter, you have until next Sunday. The reason I couldn’t run this contest for long is because I’m usually low on funds at the end of the month.
I decided to hold a contest. I would like a header made for this theme (it must match). The font used for the site title is called Daddy’s Girl. Winner will receive a domain name of his/her choice (.com, .net, or .org) for one year. The deadline is February 14, 2016 (Valentine’s Day), winner will be announced that day. Please e-mail your entries to me here. You can only enter once. Include your name and website URL (if you have one). Good luck!
I’ve been struggling to quit smoking for quite awhile now, no matter what I did I just couldn’t do it. I’ve tried Chantix (gave me horrible reactions), the gum, lozenges, patches, everything. The cigarettes are just costing way too much, so my mom bought me a vaping kit.
I got this today. She got me two bottles of tobacco flavored juice (doesn’t taste like tobacco at all, I think I will try the cherry flavored juice next since I love anything cherry). I’m hoping this gets me off the cigarettes or at least helps me cut down.
I’ve been going through hell trying to find a decent host. I went with one host who had tons of positive reviews, but everything I was experiencing was negative. I wasn’t aware that my WordPress was using up so many resources, the hosting company kept trying to fix the problems but it just wasn’t happening. My site was just not running. I had to ask for a refund and it took some time to get them to do it. I won’t mention what host it was because I don’t want any backlash, so e-mail me if you want to know.
I found a decent sized reseller for a decent price. Now I have plenty of space, hopefully. I’m also offering free hosting for personal blogs, so if you’re interested, go here for more information.
I want to thank Kya for hosting me as long as she did, and Lisa for donating to help get hosting started.
Last but not least, I am selling the domain hello-kitty.net. If you’re interested, e-mail me.
I signed up for Google Apps to use Gmail with a domain I had purchased. They gave me a 30 day free trial which was great. I did notice though, that the next billing date would not work for me. So, I contacted them via chat to ask if the billing date could be changed. They said it couldn’t, so I stopped using the account. About 1 or 2 days later, I got a phone call from Ireland (yes, Ireland) from someone who works at Google Apps. I wasn’t too happy about this call because my cell phone plan is for calls within the United States. I declined the call, and they left a message. I really hope I don’t get charged for that call. I don’t understand why they didn’t have someone from the United States to call me.
It’s like my internet bill, it’s always due on a date I can’t pay. I called them and they told me they can’t change the billing date, but I have a 10 day grace period. It always ends up getting paid 2 days late.
I’m back to using Yahoo mail. On another note, I know it has seemed that I dropped off the face of the blogging/internet world for awhile, and I admit that I did. I back to using my Twitter and Instagram. You can also find me on Yahoo Messenger (hellokittyerin).
As some of you may know (or don’t) I’m on the autistic spectrum. I was diagnosed in my teens. When I was a kid, doctors couldn’t figure out why I had limited social skills, sensory issues, etc. Because of this, I wasn’t provided with the therapy I needed. I often wonder if I would be better if they had diagnosed me sooner.
There are a few things that bother me about autism. One is that the main focus seems to be on autistic children, and not autistic adults. While I think it’s important for children with autism to get the help and support they need, adults need that too. After all, the children with autism will grow up to become autistic adults.
I’m in a Facebook group for adults with Asperger’s, and a majority of the people there have said they would not want a cure if one was ever discovered. Personally, I would take the cure in a heartbeat. They say autism/Asperger’s is a part of who they are and they wouldn’t want to change it. Yes, autism is a part of who I am, but I find it to be a burden. I still have problems socializing, reading body language, hypersensitivity to lights, sounds, touch, and smells. I never really had many friends, probably because of the impaired social skills. I’ve tried to make friends, but it tends to backfire. Most autistics want acceptance, and I do too. It’s really hard to get people to understand what it’s like to be on the spectrum. They really have no idea because they don’t experience it daily.
I wanted to share one of my favorite videos about Asperger’s:
Maybe this video will give you a better understanding of it.
Edit: I’m no longer updating/using my other blogs hosted on Tumblr. I forgot my login information so I’m unable to delete them. This will be the only blog I will have.
I know I’m a bit late, but I hope this year is better because 2015 was by far my worst year ever. Unfortunately, things from 2015 are still lingering into the new year, like the legal stuff. My next court date is February 2nd. I’m pretty nervous about it. I’m still having issues with my apartment, I wish the exterminator could get rid of these damn rats! I hate them! He’s coming on Tuesday (he comes every Tuesday). Maintenance came a few days ago in search of access points (holes) to see how they’re getting in, and they said probably from behind the stove. So they pulled the stove out and patched some holes behind there. Still didn’t help. Everybody is stumped, they don’t know how they’re getting in.
I was also pretty upset when I logged into my bank account a few days ago to see unauthorized charges. Someone got my debit card information and made 3 donations to some charity in Pakistan. They were only for $0.99, but still. I wasn’t able to dispute the charges yet because they were still pending on my bank’s end. They closed the card and I have a new one coming, which is going to take at least a week.
Anyway, as you can see, I put up a new theme. Finally! It’s pretty simple but I like it.
I haven’t been blogging because of legal issues that have been going on that I can’t talk about publicly. All I can say is, it’s not good. I was hoping it would all be resolved by the new year but that isn’t going to happen. Once it’s all said and done I will write about it.
I’ve been having issues with my apartment again, I have a rat problem that they can’t seem to get rid of. An exterminator comes every week to check/set traps but there is still a problem. I was offered to move to a different apartment, but I don’t have anyone to help me move. I really don’t know what I should do.
I’m also going to a new mental health clinic and now have a case manager. I really don’t like either, my case manager is too hard to get ahold of and never calls me back. The doctor I was seeing was honestly a huge bitch and I said I can’t deal with her anymore, I want a new doctor. I had to have my appointments with her over Skype which I’ve never done before. She would talk down to me like I was a child, kept bugging me about pregnancy for some reason, yelled at me for stopping medication that she told me to stop, and told me side effects from one medication were “in my head”. The new doctor is much better and he actually listened to me.
I’ve had a deep depression for a few weeks now, I was fine until I got bed bugs. They came in an exterminated once but will be back on Monday to do it again. It’s no fun getting bit when you’re trying to sleep. My apartment is an absolute mess because I had to remove everything from my kitchen, closets, dresser drawers, and closet, so there’s stuff everywhere. I hope this can get taken care of so that my apartment can go back to normal, I would feel more comfortable if things were back in order.
This apartment complex has really gone downhill. I’ve had roaches, rats, and now bed bugs. Plus the air conditioning keeps shutting down and the hot water doesn’t work half the time. I’d move but I have a year left on my lease. I can’t afford another place because I need utilities included and not many places offer that. So I’ve just been hanging in there to see if things get resolved.
That’s been what’s going on lately, I haven’t felt like getting on the computer or doing much really. When I get depressed I just want to sleep and do nothing. Hopefully when this is all over with I’ll feel better.
On a positive note, the Hello Kitty festival is at the end of this month.
Since the beginning of the year I’ve struggled with finances, struggled with my illnesses, and have had problems with my apartment. It seems everything is going wrong and I don’t know what to do. It’s just taking it’s toll on me emotionally and physically. I really hope things start to get better.
Anyway, I hope everyone had a great 4th of July (Americans). Here are some fireworks I saw on Saturday:
I went to the dentist this morning to get my root canal done. I was very scared and nervous because I never had one before. I needed a lot of Novocaine because I’m hard to numb. Everything went fine, it was a long process but it wasn’t bad at all. I was expecting to be in lots of pain but I wasn’t. I’m so glad it’s over with, I was in pain and having a lot of anxiety.
Don’t believe the stories you hear about root canals being really bad. I will tell you that it’s actually very boring being in the dentist’s chair for 2 hours.
Edit: The dentist’s office called this morning to tell me the dentist was out sick and rescheduled me for Thursday.
Yesterday I went to the dentist to get a tooth filled and that didn’t hurt, but Monday I have to get a root canal. I’m scared because I’ve never had one before and am afraid it will hurt. I hate dental work.
In other news, my Facebook group is doing well and I’m proud of that. I worked hard on it.
Just a short blog, sorry.

My doctor’s appointment today went well. I have been doing better as far as the depression goes, and the schizophrenia has improved a bit. I’m still having problems with anxiety, so my doctor switched me from Xanax to Klonopin. It’s supposed to last longer whereas the Xanax has a short life span.
