My boss loves me. She tells me all the time how well I am doing and that I am the best student employee she has ever had. It’s nice to be appreciated. I worked with some of the other work studies and it so strange how they lack basic life skills. I don’t say this to sound mean, but it’s the most basic of things. Eye contact, saying thank you, how to answer a phone- its really not that hard.

EDIT. Said girl has now been fired and is now pulling the race hard. No no no.

He’s cutting his hair soon. I’m really happy about it, but i’ll miss it sometimes. 

Sometimes when you guys ask me something and I type back a long response I will anon it to myself so I can post the answer publicly to my blog. 

I ain’t about to let all that typing go to waste.

Little things

This post is for myself, feel free to read it though. It’s just updates on the fam. 

My sister A just finished her time with AmerCorps and his back home! She doesn’t miss the mosquitoes. 

My sister C is being relocated from California to some place new. I should have visited her more. 

My bother J has saved up money from his first job (KFC- haha, it must run in the family) and bought a motorcycle. 

My brother S broke his arm in three places during soccer. My mother doesn’t feed him well. I swear we were all malnourished as children. 

My brother T moved into a new apartment so he isn’t down the street from our house anymore.

I definitely live vicariously though all the people I follow on tumblr. Whenever I am interested in something I search the tags for people doing that thing. It’s how I found many of you awesome folks, between nursing students to au pairs. Now I really want to follow someone who is a flight attendant or pilot, but the only thing I can find in the tags is porn and travel rants. Sigh.

The old scene preteen me took some pretty weird selfies in high school. This is what it looks like when you have a camera, took an art class, and were identity searching. I didn’t want to post these because I didn’t want you guys to think I was a weirdo… oh well. 

I guarantee I have more embarrassing childhood photos than 97% of you.

Drunk Janell believes she has a spot on ghetto Dora the explorer accent. Like one of the best accents you’ve ever heard.

Drunk Janell needs to reevaluate some things, because that accent is the most horrid drunken-slurred dragged out deep voice ever.

Watercoloring with the roomie and boyfriend

My third-ish job was at HEB grocery store. It was like heaven after working at KFC. The managers had a zero tolerance for any type of harassment. I worked with a bunch of high school and college kids that made the job awesome. We took trips to the beach, amusement parks, and even had company picnics that were pretty great. This is where I meet the guy who took my to prom and also my first serious-ish relationship. People would always come into the store and tell me I looked like the Tia and Tamara twins.

I have this idea of how to get to know someone:

Ask them what their dream house looks like. What are the prominent features, what is important about it, where is it, who is in it, what is the size/attractions/lawn like? Your answer tells me how you see things and where you place your value.  

Do you have a condo on the beach with a huge dinning room table? -You like a relaxed life with good people and good food. 

High tech, huge indoor pool, six car garage? -You like to have a lot of fancy material possessions with you. And $$$

I would want a little cottage right outside a big city with huge windows to let in the natural light. And a big green yard with tall trees. Don’t forget hot tub near a porch swing. 

What about you? Reblog Post16 notes

O extended his trip another ten days. I was suppose to see him tomorrow. In retaliation I’m getting drunk tomorrow night at a party. I hope he has fun camping, but I don’t feel like being happy for him right now.

These summer classes will be the death of me. Why did I do this to myself? I think I’m going to wind up with two B’s. I’ll just die if that happens. I need A’s for nursing school.

I see O tomorrow, but with his family at dinner (We are going to a Brazilian stake house, I wish I was a bigger fan of meat…). I wont get alone time with him until Saturday afternoon after I take my HESI.

I’m transitioning to being a vegetarian. Slowly.

I am feeling very overwhelmed all the time.

I got my hands on an adrenal. So I am going to study all day Friday before dinner. This is only my second time using it. It’s interesting.

Also, send me your snap chats. I wanna add you bad bitches.

Christian me. I had Skype dates with church friends about evangelism techniques, spent entire nights praying for my campus, and lived a life on fire for the Lord. I have so many personal experience that felt like I was having one-on-ones with God. The emotions and feelings I had around this time are still some of the most vivid I have ever had. I still find myself unconsciously humming along to old worship songs since they have been forever engraved there. Some of my most joyful moments happened here. It’s the strangest feeling going from living a life of divine purpose to not.
