I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person – Olivia Wilde
I had a doctor appointment today, so I get there to find out that her practice closed. So I went home and gave them a call and they told me they moved and gave me the new address. Shouldn’t they have done that when I made the appointment? I had to reschedule the appointment because it was too late. Now I can’t get in til the 27th. Then they tell me that they were now in the next building over, I wish I would have known that but there was no way for me to know since I wasn’t told. I’m just annoyed that I drove all the way there for nothing.
I hope I can find the place and make it to the appointment, I’m really needing a new prescription.

I got this quiz from OkDani.com
I’ve been thinking about this for awhile. It seems to be difficult to find the right guy. I don’t hate being single, but it would be nice to find someone. I got asked out tonight, which felt nice, but he’s not the right guy (he’s a cheater). I always seem to attract the wrong guys. This other guy seemed really interested in me and would text me a lot, but he’s not a guy I’d consider dating because he’s a pervy douche. I’m looking for a kind of shy guy who’s understanding and an all around good guy. I’m not getting any younger, so I’m getting a bit impatient with finding someone. I’m hoping someday the right guy will come along, but I don’t know when.
I wish it was a happy new year, tonight I’m left shaken up. There was a shooting in my neighborhood, one cop was shot along with another person after a robbery gone bad. What’s scary is that I was at the store the shooting happened at about an hour before. Thank God I was back home when it happened.
I was watching a movie with a friend when we heard loud bangs, but they were only fireworks. I think it was in poor taste to have fireworks after a shooting like that happened. Four suspects are still on the loose so I don’t feel very safe. What a way to bring in the new year. People are crazy.
It’s still Christmas here on the west coast, hope everyone had a good day. I spent most of the day sleeping.
I think I have a virus on my computer or WordPress is acting up, but it won’t allow me to upload pictures of what I got for Christmas. My friend made my gift, it’s a vase with potpourri and lights with lace and a bow on top. I also got an iTunes gift card from her. From my parents, I got some stuff from the “Sleep” Bath & Body Works line. I love the Stress Relief and Sleep stuff. This year it didn’t really feel like Christmas, maybe because it was in the 60’s. It’s nice here though, but I’m used to white Christmases in Pennsylvania. I don’t want to move back there though, it’s not for me. I miss my family lots during this time. This year was better than last year.
This weekend I went to two concerts, Every Time I Die and Impending Doom. I didn’t care for the venue Every Time I Die was at, but I still enjoyed it despite barely being able to see the stage. I loved Impending Doom, and even got to meet Brook! That was a good experience. I’ve been wanting to meet him but was too shy to approach him, but last night I’m glad I did, he was really nice.
I hate how anxious I get about things. I’m going to a concert tomorrow night (and the next night) and I’m SO anxious. I always find things to worry about like if things go wrong. I’ve even gotten anxious over doing regular things like laundry, cleaning, etc. With these medication changes I think my anxiety has gotten worse. I need to talk to my doctor about it, although I’m already on an anti-anxiety medication. I just don’t know what else to do. It’s like I can’t enjoy anything without having to endure anxiety and sickness. I’m trying to tell myself that everything will be okay but my brain won’t listen.
I didn’t have a good Thanksgiving, no family to spend time with and no good food. It was just like any other day. Every year around the holidays I really miss my family, it’s hard not seeing them. Christmas will be about the same. I’m putting my decorations up this weekend because I love decorating for Christmas. I hope everyone had a better Thanksgiving than me and sorry this post was so short. Not much to say really.
Wow, I had over 500 users who registered to go through and almost all of them were spam. If you got deleted and weren’t a spammer, re-register (I think that’s fixed now) and fill in some information on your profile so I know you aren’t a spammer.
Anyway, things haven’t been going very well for me lately. As I may have mentioned before, I suffer from major depressive disorder. My doctor prescribed me some Wellbutrin and that didn’t work out at all. It made me so sick. I haven’t been motivated to do anything with this site let alone blog. He’s switching me to a new medication called Luvox, but I don’t think I’ll be able to start it until Monday. I’m really hoping it will help because I hate feeling so lousy. I’m also hoping my insurance will cover it or I’ll need something else. I’m not a big fan of my doctor (they keep changing them around on me) he’s just really…out there. I think our personalities clash. I’m still going to therapy every two weeks and that helps a little bit, I get along with my therapist really well.
On Monday night I’m seeing Norma Jean, then the following week The Devil Wears Prada. In December I have Every Time I Die and Impending Doom. I really wish I went to see Nine Inch Nails last weekend but tickets were too expensive. The shows I go to cost around $20 for a ticket. I wouldn’t pay $100 for a ticket, that just seems like way too much to me. My doctor says he’s happy I’m going to these because it’s good I’m at least trying to get out of the house.
I also did something I thought I’d never do, get an iPhone. I had always had Android since it first came out, and to be honest, I miss it. The iPhone is okay just not as great as people make it out to be.
I recently had to end a friendship with someone because I got so sick of her excuses. She would always plan things with me then cancel them, every time. I tried being patient with her, but I just couldn’t deal with it anymore. I feel kinda bad about the whole thing, but I couldn’t even trust her. Time to move on, things changed too much since she moved.
I can’t believe I’m 30 already, time sure flies. I feel like it just hasn’t sunk in yet that I’m no longer in my 20’s. I didn’t have an exciting birthday, just had some cake. My birthday card still hasn’t arrived yet which was disappointing. My parents always send me something. Hopefully I’ll get it soon. <:-P
I met a guy online and thought we hit it off, and set up to meet next weekend. Today I get a text message from him bailing on me. I feel kind of mad for being led on for so long, he said we can be just friends (they always say that) but I was hoping it would lead to more. I deserve better. I’ve never had any good luck with guys. I hope someday I can find a guy who won’t bail on me and be honest with me.
My depression unfortunately has gotten worse. I’ve always struggled with depression, but it seems after the accident I got into (don’t want to get into too many details, I bumped into someone on a scooter because I didn’t see him). I’ve never been in an accident before and I guess the whole thing shook me up even though it wasn’t a bad accident. I have a new doctor now, and he switched my medication in hopes that it will make me feel better. That stuff takes awhile to get into my system and start working, so we’ll see.
I think part of it also has to do with being so far away from my family, I really miss them. I don’t know, maybe at some point I’ll have to move back to Pennsylvania even though I hated it there. I hope it doesn’t come to that. It’s hard to care about things (like this site) because of how lousy I’ve been feeling. Depression is just a rough thing to go through especially if it’s severe. All the weight I’ve gained hasn’t helped either, I just hope I start feeling better at some point.
It’s been really hot lately, around 90 degrees. They decided at the last minute to replace air conditioning units at my apartment complex. They’ve been doing construction work for about a month (which is annoying itself too) and according to the manager, the air conditioning won’t be on until a week from tomorrow. I’m so tired of this hot apartment I could scream. I have several fans going but it doesn’t help much. I did renew my lease but am wondering if I should have or not, there always seems to be something going wrong around here. It’s too hot to not have air conditioning, I have no clue what they were thinking waiting until the last minute to do all this.
Some of the staff live here themselves so it’s nice to know that they have to suffer too. :))
