When I was younger I had this thing for pins. You know the pins that came in all sorts of different shapes and sizes? Yup I loved them. I’d always thought it would be cool to create custom pins and now that Veracity has reopened it would be neat to make some for the board. The only problem? We need a logo, which obviously isn’t going to be really easy to come up with. I mean how do you think of something that goes with the boards, but we’ll see.

They are constantly burning out on us. I’m not sure what it is but I think we’ve been through about 4 power supplies in the past few months.
The only thing we have concluded is it seems to happen when it’s plugged into where Robby’s computer is. I’m not sure why but for some reason it’s causing a short which sucks. So I guess we are gonna have to peruse Amazon and see if they have any deals, etc on them bad boys.
I suppose it really can’t hurt to have extra, especially given how many electronics we actually have in the house.

For the most part Robby doesn’t really wear tee shirts unless it’s like a white undershirt. In fact it wasn’t until very recently that we got him so decent shirts that didn’t like like trash and it makes such a BIG difference when he’s going casual.
It’s so nice that he has the ability to put something on that is considered decent and not lazy when we go out to get dinner, etc. Maybe that’s me being superficial but I can say that it does help a lot with his self esteem and overall look. I love it!
What are some changes your significant other has made that you’ve noticed has a positive impact on them?

I’m not unhappy per say. Well I mean I am happy in areas where a lot of people I know are miserable but there are other areas were I’m not exactly happy so I’m not sure what that means. Can you still love your life and be unhappy? I haven’t quite found the answer to that but when/if I do, I’ll let you know.
My marriage is fantastic. I love my husband so much and he makes me smile and laugh and knows all the right things to say when I am feeling down and out and the only thing I want to do is hide in the nearest hole and cry. I am fortunate considering our situation 3 years ago and yet there are still some portions of my life that depress me to the point where I can’t help but shut down.
The thing is though that I don’t feel like I have any right to complain. There are others, people I love in fact, that are struggling in their relationships and I just don’t believe I have any right to sit here and bitch and moan about something so insignificant in comparison to not only their issues but to those who have it 100x times worse then I do.
So what do I do instead?
I swallow the pain I’m harboring– smile when it doesn’t hurt too much and count my blessings because really what else can I do?

For the past few years the shift in mindset for a lot of individuals has moved to stainless steel. Now a days it isn’t uncommon to see appliances that range from stainless steel refrigerators or ovens to Stainless Steel Kitchen Sinks. As much as I understand the appeal for these types of items and that type of material, I am also familiar with how difficult it can be to clean it. Especially when it comes to fingerprints and I can only imagine the headache that comes with it if you have young children!
Now don’t get me wrong I love my Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink but I have to be honest. If I had a choice to upgrade to all stainless steal appliances I would past. Well at least until they came up with a solution for fingerprints!

I’ve been pretty neglectful of my blog lately and I’m not going to apologize for that because there’s no point. I can sit here and make promises that it won’t happen again but the truth is, it will. I haven’t had much to blog about and I don’t feel the need to talk about the mundane happenings of my life so what do you get instead? Silence. Paid blogs and pretty much nothingness because I just don’t have anything to say and even if I did, I wonder how many care to hear it, especially when most of the time I, myself don’t.
Other than school and work, not a whole lot has changed. I cut a few people out of my life that I needed to. I have grown distant with pretty much everyone I talk to online because I recognize that I open myself up to a lot of hurt. I don’t love easily but when I do, I love with my whole heart and as a result when I’m hurt because of it, it wounds me to the point where I just don’t want to be around or talk to anyone. In short I’m crippled and I’m starting to find that the older I get the more hesitant I am of jumping back on that horse. How many times can somebody break before it’s too much? I’m starting to discover that I don’t really want to answer that question; that I can’t answer that question. /end self pity
I have one more class left before I am done with my associate’s and I am slacking hardcore. I have no will and no drive and I just want it to be over so I suppose I’ll spend some of Monday trying to do my assignments early so I don’t have to worry about it. Anyone who knows me knows that at this point I must be pretty damn desperate. I’m the world’s best procrastinator– ask anyone I know.
Jenn and I have decided to reopen Veracity. Things are going to be different this time around. If you’re the type that needs to have drama, there is a forum for you. If you decide to be a douchebag, you’ll be called out on your douchery. If you do something moronic, you’ll be called out on your stupidity. In short, we’re done putting up with the petty bullshit, the whining, and the dramaticism that seems to plague the online world. No more of this diplomatic because we’re Admins bullshit. If you choose to act like a child, you’ll be treated as such. End of story.
And so that has been my life since the last time I actually decided to sit down and write a blog entry that I wasn’t paid for. Nothing exciting but then again who’s life really is?
