So...I need a job! I have no structure to my life which isn't great. Next week will be the week of job hunting/resume updating. I'm thinking I might try to get a job in Chicago - at least for the summer. I'll see where things go from there.
Today I will use my brand stinkin new running shoes! Did I mention this already? I don't know. I got new shoes. They cost a little more than I'd normally spend, but I thought it was a good investment, and maybe it would help motivate me to continue running/exercising. I actually bought the shoes about a week ago, but the weather has been so shitty that I haven't used 'em yet. Today is the day!

Had a much needed conversation with someone. Very cathartic, but very good.
Got stood up by a Craigslist-er who wanted to buy some of my crap :( I could have used that $45 this weekend...
Babysat the little Bailey nugget! Lots of fun and baby noises. Practiced my peek-a-boo skills like a boss.
Was asked to appear in court as a witness for someone.
Was asked by Jasmine for help planning Sunny's wedding shower.
Aaaaaand another interesting thing happened that will be discussed at a later date.
Also, 30 Rock this week was SO WEIRD. It made me feel stoned just watching it. Last week was friggin hilarious, but this week was ridiculous.
That tegan and sara video that i posted earlier - awesome. good job, me.

She & I went out for dinner last night. Sat next to a couple who only said 3 things to each other for the whole hour that we were there sitting by them. It was so weird. I'm glad my mom noticed it, because as soon as I got in the car I said, "what was up with those weirdos next to us??" and she said, "I KNOOOOOW!". We had a good chuckle. Seriously, these people just sat in silence the whole time they were eating their food. The only thing they talked about was their food. The wife would occasionally ask if he liked his food. He would say yes. This happened 3 times.
After dinner we went the casino. My mom is so frugal, and brings the smallest amount of money, but she seems to like it there. Of course I do too! For some reason she gave me $50 to spend. AND I ended up winning $200 in one hand of 3 card poker. Most people are really cool when they win. Not me. I was all giddy and happy and trying not to do a seated victory dance (but I did it anyway). Ahhh the joys of gambling. The casino probably would have liked it if I had continued to play after that, but I cashed in my chips and left shortly after the win. Big pimpin.

For the whole 45 minutes that I was watching Law & Order I forgot about cigarettes.
And instead of snapping at my mother for no good reason, I meditated.
I'm pretty sure I can do this.
As discussed with Erica yesterday, I think I need to wear a big sign that says "I'm sorry". Because I've been a real bitch these last few days. It's kind of like really intense PMSing non stop. The worst is that my mom doesn't even know any of this is going on, so she just thinks I suck for no reason.
If I make it a week with no smoking I'm going to do something nice for myself. I don't know what yet. Ideas?
*edit: just kidding, i am going to kill my mom.

I am done with my road trip - having good and bad feelings about that.
The trip was spectacular and I loved seeing new places/meeting new people/seeing people I haven't seen for a while/driving/etc. I think it was everything that I wanted it to be. An adventure :)
This weekend was a success as well! Had a surprise bday party for my mom and had about 20 family members come into town for it. She was super surprised, and it was awesome. The whole weekend was a pile of games, playing outside, drinking, making/eating lots of food, and other jovial activities. But now everyone is gone! This means lots of cleanup. Also, tonight will be the first night I am going to sleep in my bed in about a month. I'm strangely excited.
April 1 was my chosen "quit date". Went to the doctor before my road trip, told her I want to not smoke anymore, but I struggle to do that on my own. So I'm taking Wellbutrin (generic-Bupropion) to help. Not supposed to drink very much alcohol while on this drug, so I didn't start taking it this weekend. On the 1st I smoked 2 cigarettes in the morning while I drove home from Michigan. I justified it by thinking that the night before was my last night, but I accidentally fell asleep early before enjoying my last couple of cigarettes. Didn't smoke at all til Saturday evening when my cousin busted out some vanilla clove cigars/cigarettes while we were all playing bags outside. I caved. I had a few that night. My lungs hurt so badly the next day. Yesterday - didn't smoke.
Woke up today wanting to smoke. Nobody is here to distract me. I have bitten off all of my nails. Drinking coffee at the moment.
I'm afraid to leave my house for the next couple of weeks because I'll want to smoke at all the times I usually do. Like while I'm driving, or if I'm hanging out with friends, or drinking. And now the weather is starting to get warm so sitting outside on a warm night hanging out, drinking a beer and smoking a cigarette sounds AMAZING. I need to come up with a new/healthy habit or hobby to replace that one. These are Betsy's suggestions: drawing, painting, ceramics, running, power lifting, jazzercise, volunteering, cleaning, eating celery, needle point, mushroom hunting, or drug dealing. Some things to think about.
Hm, okay. Tons of shit to do today. Gonna get on it. While not smoking.
