Plan B & Mother's Day

Last night while laying in bed trying to get my thoughts to slow and my self to sleep something hit me, we'll just call it one of life's brick walls. We all know how fun those can be. Well this one flat out sucked, and still being awake at 3 am really didn't help much either.

My old name for my blog was called The Clean Slate for those that weren't around during that time, I chronicled a year of major up's and down's in my life from everything from being diagnosed with cancer and being told I was in remission 6 months later, to my dad's diagnoses of cancer to the night he passed. I also kept more of the private things during that years and years past in physical journals and notebooks. So being a collector of nostalgia and sentiments I have compiled a fair amount of journals in my day and every time I can sense a new chapter of my life to end I buy a new journal and start the whole process all over again. So I'm doing that now, no I'm not starting a new blog for the next "chapter" but I am going to try and figure something out to bring in the new.

So I'm not sure if I'm going to be getting into the school that I've applied to due to lack of taking an ACT test and  all the other things that are required for going to a uni. I'm not sure yet though, my hope and momentum for this dream isn't one that's easily swayed. Though last night my realization also came equipped with a plan just in case things don't go the way I'm hoping.  A few posts ago I said that my mom had her own sort of idea for me to go back to school, work AND still live with her even though it's not exactly what I want to do, but the gods must have been listening because that's what I may have to do and I really, really don't want to.

All of the momentum  that I've had over the past few weeks feels like it has just flung me into a brick wall full of nails. Sadly tonight my attempts to make my mom's Mother's Day great was a bust. I gave her a candle that smells amazing and the new Stevie Nicks cd, she blatantly told me that she didn't really like the cd that I drove all over town to find for her and the candle that I got her despite it's amazing smell didn't really get much of a reaction, just because it didn't have a fucking wood wick!! Than some other shit happened but I'll save that..I vented enough already. It's time for me to start the new Sarah Dessen book that I got tonight at Walmart during another Bored Browsing spree.

Happy Mother's Day all!



  1. I'm sorry to your mum didn't quite like her gifts...I bet the candle smelled delicious :)
    Thank you so much for following my blog.
    I'll surely come back to check yours :)
    Thanks again!

  2. Thank you Ella, your blog is adorable :)

  3. That sucks how your mother's day turned out. No matter what though, you are a great person, and a great daughter, for getting her gifts. It truly is the thought that counts.

    What do you think of the book so far? That one has been sitting on my "to-read" shelf for a while.

  4. I'm so very sorry to hear about all this.
    Even I have the problem of trying to start all over again if something goes wrong. At times I think I breath and eat Escapism. It's weird.
    I'm sure that your mom liked the gifts. Every time she listens to that Stevie Nicks cd she'll think of you...well...she can't help it right? Since you gave it to her in the first place. lol :D. Like your music taste. Love Fleetwood Mac! <3

  5. Thanks guys, I'm really hoping things go better for me asap, I need it al-freakin-ready!

  6. it's so sweet of you buying those things for your mum :)
    you have a lovely blog.


Thank you for leaving me an assorted thought of your own. :)
