On how American Express is screwing with me.

While watching Project Runway a few weeks ago, the Diane von Furstenberg episode actually, her commercial for American Express played.  Now I am completely against credit cards since I have become a Dave Ramsey girl, however after seeing this commercial I seriously thought I might need one.  Perhaps I am meant to be a designer, and design like there is no tomorrow.  Diane von F said she found it all on accident.  I can only do it with the help of American Express. 

I keep waiting for my accident.  But then again aren’t you supposed to happen to your life or things will happen to you? 

I just don’t know. 

When I watched this commercial and heard Diane von Furstenberg say, “I didn’t really know what I wanted to do, but I knew the woman I wanted to become,” luckily I was home alone because I started crying.  It wasn’t a sobbing or anything, but basically it was a like staring into my future and not seeing what Diane von Furstenberg has.  Or seeing anything at all.  I sometimes wonder if I even have a future. 

Obviously, I have a future, right?

VW Amazing Camper Van

Does anyone want to travel America with me in this amazing VW Van?

It is called the Verdier, and if you check out the website you will see all the amazing features that this thing has. I have always wanted to take a road trip across America, and now I can do it in a VW Van that is awesome. Although, chances are that it will take about 20 years before this awesome product will be on the market.

Too bad though. I love this thing. I might even leave my city life, and live a truly green life if I had this van.

On a good weekend in Dallas.

While at work looking at pictures via Spring’s flickr, I realized how truly blessed that I am to have friends who will gather around a table and share food with me. My favorite part of the collection of pictures is how we most of us are always laughing. Usually, about something probably Sam said in regards to his views regarding life in general.

My weekend in Dallas was a constant reminder of what I have left. Spring kept assuring me that I can come back if I want to. Dimple would mention it a few times as well, but I don’t know if you can “go back.”

What is wonderful about Dallas now is that when I go visit I get to stay at Spring and Chad’s house, I get to see old co-workers at happy hours, and I get to feel like I belong again. I don't have to preface every story I tell with an explanation of who all the people in the story are. The stories are usually about the people I am with. I get to drink random Colombian liquorish tasting liquor at Puerto Rican parties with my Puerto Rican friends. I get to spend all afternoons reading a book in a guest bed with Rufus, my goddog. What could be better? It is not about going back, but it is knowing where I am loved.

This is the "gang" minus Ellie who was coming back from a caving trip, and Spring who is behind the camera.

This post is about what I have been doing lately.

Sorry, I have been away. When my life is disappointing, I feel no ability to communicate anything positive, funny, or to be creative in any capacity.

However, perhaps you would like to know the recent news in my life. I will give it to you in bullet points.

  • I got a 2nd job at JcPenny’s. I like it for the most part. I don’t like that I have to push credit card applications. Although, you do win nice little awards in recognition of your work. I like that. I like concrete answers to things.
  • I am coming to Dallas for the weekend.
  • I hate the job that I got when I moved to Austin. Turns out that I am people person, and not a pushing paper, copy and pasting for another document, and absolutely no creative freedom person.
  • I got a really cool deal on 54 Rubbermaid plastic containers at Sam’s Club. ($19.87)
  • I have lost ten pounds.
  • I am very excited about Fall television.
  • I want Leanne to win on Project Runway.
  • Having a job I hate has made me realize that I want to be a counselor. I am going to go back to school, get my MSW, and be counselor. Then I can set my own hours.
  • My programmable coffee maker is broken. This sucks.

What has been up in your life?
