{danielle is...}

stressed out...

and i honestly cannot take it. i long for a large refreshing cup of coffee....but what i really need is a good nights sleep. so i am going to grab my ipod...listen to a little owen...and hopefully pass out...i dont work until 11 tomorrow...so maybe ill sleep in.


{danielle is sad...and tired}

i just realized that i have at least 6 projects due by monday...i barely slept a wink last night trying to complete some of them...and NOW i cant hang out with caisee, corey and danny today. i am uber bummed.

oh, and i have to work.

ahhhh....the miserable life i lead! {haha}

{well it has finally caught up to me}

all of this computer/internet addiction-ing has given me an astigmatism. seriously. i went to the eye doctor yesterday and "he said so"...i have to go back sometime this week and order new $100+ lenses...they couldnt tell me exactly w/o paying right there...and the reason i couldnt pay YESTERDAY was because somehow i left my wallet at home. believe me, i was frantic. i had worked at the junior high all morning and swore that i had, had it with me. when i couldnt find it i thought maybe a student stole it...but then i realized my ipod was still there {and besides i didnt have any cash in my wallet...but still}...after freaking out i called my siblings to check in the hell-hole-mess-of-a-room i have. i literally JUST cleaned it on monday....actually, you know what...i was going to go there but im not..for the sake of reducing stress.

***warning, skip the next paragraph if you dont care to read about my bagel and coffee...or eating anything nonetheless***

mmmm...currently i am sipping my daily {3rd} cup of starbucks coffee {black!..i am so dedicated to this routine, i literally walk down the stairs blinded by sleep and freshly grind it everyday} and eating a blueberry bagel...i think i am finally getting smarter. i went from the normal-sized teenage girl {actually smaller than a lot of my friends} who ate anything and everything she wanted to the slower-metabolized young adult who ate absolutely nothing {omg. that has HOW many calories?} to the maturing {hahah!} twenty-three year old who is beginning to understand moderation. for the past couple years i have stood in line to ride the vicious cycle of rollercoaster-dieting. and boy, let me tell you, it takes a toll on your body and on your mind. last year {even this summer} i would never THINK to eat a bagel. god forbid! too many carbs. but i realize now that when i dont let myself occasionally eat those types of things, i eventually binge like crazy. for instance, any sort of junk food i usually dont eat...but the minute i got to MA...i will disgustingly eat about a months worth in a week! it all makes sense, a little here and a little there wont kill yah...its overendulgence that will. i do still try to cut out the sweets b/c diabetes runs in my family...but dont kid yourself, i love to eat cookies and cupcakes and...all sorts of stuff {bagels!} moderation, dear friends! i hope this plan works out so i dont get a sugar-high rush{which usually makes me sick because i typically dont eat that way}

wow. i had to go back up above that paragraph of gobbley-goop and put a warning label...just in case anyone wanted to skip that rambling!

well, its almost 8am...i need to down my last cup o' joe and light a fire under my tush...i work at 9 and for some reason woke up extremely before i needed to today. i have class afterwards but i have a break in between, so i probably {most likely....im an addict remember} will be back on later.

i am wicked excited for the holidays by the way! my goal this year is to make at least one gift for everyone in my family/adoptive family {*cough*caisee/danny/corey/stephy/sarahann/and maybe if you're lucky...and i have time, YOU!*cough*} hahha.

{the first step is admitting}

...my name is danielle, i am an internet-addict...

yesterday my internet wasnt working. i felt like i had lost a child. part of me was missing. i didnt know what to do with myself. but, i seemed to have a lot more time in my day.

i baked our famous family-recipe rocky road cake {and ate a little too many slices}
i played guitar/piano with my brother for hours
i watched home alone and cleaned my room
i sewed the buttons back on my sweaters {the ones that have pulled off}
i restrung the strings from my hoodies that came out during the wash {from years ago}
i made my bed {gasp!}
i listened to music
i watched house {twice}
i ate more cake

i think i need a patch. or at least to limit myself. it was nice....however, i made up for it once it finally turned on at about 7 or so. i watched videos on hulu until one am. sick, i know.

i just spent the last 108 minutes watching one of my favorite movies: home alone. i know, i know. christmas is over a month away...but i cant help it, i love the holidays.

here are some things i would love to get under my tree...and some others that i just love.
