As the end of this year approaches, I just wanted to thank all my loved ones for the never ending love and support they have shown me this year. I've definitely had some ups and downs, but nevertheless, they were always there for me in big and small ways. I've also learned a lot about myself this year and I'm thankful for the people and experiences that have shown me the way to better myself. With that, I am going to make sure I continue to grow and learn in a positive manner and I hope you all stick around for the ride. I love you!!!
Thank you for the memories!
Here's to better days!
Happy New Year!!!

Not meant to be wasted
We can always be chasing the sun!
So fill up your lungs and just run
But always be chasing the sun!" - Sara Bareilles
I promise I didn't neglect you! I have just been so busy with my Christmas projects and shopping that after I finished all of them, I was super exhausted to do anything else! Well, as promised, I said I would post a picture of my creations and here it is!
I knitted the girls cowls! Complete with my own labels on the inside that said With Love, Phoebe Jan. I was quite proud of them. I've made scarves and a beanie before, but it would take me at least a month to finish one project. I finished FOUR in a month or so! It was a big accomplishment for me! I think that might have been the fastest I've ever knitted in my life. After I finished the last one, my hands were super swollen the next day. I wish took a picture of them! They looked like little finger sausages. Sooo gross! It was pretty hard putting on gloves at work too. Haha.
Anyway, I gave them their gifts at Sheila's little holiday dinner four days before Christmas and I think they liked it...at least that's what they told me. Haha. Christmas Eve was spent shopping at Target, of course. No, I wasn't doing any last minute shopping. I was actually just shopping around for me! I tried taking advantage of their Christmas sales since I'm awesome and finished my shopping on time! Then had dinner at home with the family and opened gifts after midnight. The next day my family and I went to my aunt and uncle's house where we did more eating and laughing. It was such a great Christmas this year. I was definitely in the Christmas spirit and I just love spending time with my family.
I hope you guys had a wonderful holiday as well and I'll talk to you guys soon!
Please excuse the previous post. I think I was angry at Ticketmaster for some reason. ;) Don't worry. I'm no longer that angry. I wasn't able to purchase any tickets because they were sold out, but did win two on the radio later on that day. :) I guess you can say it was a blessing in disguise. Someone was definitely looking out for my wallet that day cause I was seriously thinking of spending a shit load of money on tickets and we all know that would just have been disastrous in the end.
Anyway, I watched my first Christmas movie last night as I was working on Christmas project #2 and it really helped me get into the spirit of things. I'm actually really excited about Christmas and can't wait to finish my shopping. I feel like I have an idea of what gifts to get each person on my list, but I feel like I can't physically go shopping until I'm almost half way done with the project I'm currently working on. Here's a sneak peek of it! I promise I'll post a picture of it when it's all done!
Isn't it so purrrrty?! I'm so in love with the colors and I'm really proud of my progress! *Pat on the back*
Well, I really should get back to it! Talk to you soon!
I'm so angry right now. I am completely livid!! I was buying 3 tickets for the One Direction concert on Ticketmaster and was offered 2nd ROW seats and what happens? ERROR! WTF?!
So, naturally I try again. I was offered the 2nd ROW again, but different seat numbers and what happens?
Now everything is sold out and I'm not about to buy nose bleed seats. No offense to people that did or do. I just feel like I've done that back in the day. I wasn't privileged enough to have my rich parents buy me front row seats like some ungrateful kids today. And let's be honest, I'm not a teenager anymore and my vision is not as great. Haha! Yes, I'm old. I'm not about to be that ridiculous person who brings binoculars to a concert. Like I said, I've done that. (Sad to admit it, but I have. I had red binoculars. Haha!) I might as well rent a blimp and fly over Met Life Stadium and watch little specks moving around. I'd rather wait for a concert DVD to come out. Just because of this, they better come out with one or One Direction better show up at my house and give me my own private concert.
Ugh, so mad.
Hey Ticketmaster, get your shit together. You know you're about to sell tickets for one of the biggest boy bands out right now and what is your site is going to do? F-ing crash? Don't let this happen again or go back to the old fashion way of selling tickets - through your local store where fans actually wait in line. Thank you.
