My uncle has aggressive, fast moving prostate cancer

Last night I found out it moved to his bones and he's got a tumor ...

Fuck cancer

I can't do this ...

I got my AncestryDNA results back (I got the test as a xmas present) ... and ... the results are kind of surprising!



Edit:  I did this super early this morning before I left for work so it was a bit rushed ...

The 'Native American' means that the genetics are native to the Americas (North/Central/South) ... which means that my Mexican background is native to Mexico and that region

'Europe West' is France, Germany, Luxeumbourg, Lichenstein ..

'Scandinavia' is Norway, Denmark and ... Sweden, I think

'Ireland' is Ireland, Scotland and Wales

'Middle East' is Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, etc.
sinderella81: (Believe)
It was a good one.  Some downs, but for the most part, it was good.  I got some good stuff, including the DNA Test from Ancestry.com so I can get a breakdown of my genetic makeup ... I'm really excited for that!



Here's me today just before going to dinner with the extended family.

Also ... I LOVE my extended family on my mother's side, but ... I can only take them in small doses.  I'm too much like my father and not enough like them, so most things like this I tend to keep quiet (which is unlike me lol)

But all in all, it was a great day.  And I'm seeing The Force Awakens tomorrow, so yay!!!!
sinderella81: (Blindfold)
I don't normally do these but I might this year ...

I need to stop being so judgmental about myself ... I am so non-judgmental about everyone around me but ... I judge myself too hard.  I just need to work on accepting myself for who I am ...

Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] lexalicious70 for the talk last night <3
sinderella81: (Believe)
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  I did ... ate way too much but it was SO GOOD!!

The sis and I normally go to Harvey's and get a new seatbelt bag on Black Friday (meaning we're leaving the house at lik 4am :/ )

HOWEVER, neither one of us saw anything on the website that warranted getting up before the sun so ... we slept in a bit and went to Target at about 7:30am to see what they had.  Ended up coming out with a new pair of jeans that were 40% off, a t-shirt that says 'NAUGHTY' on it because of reasons LOL and a couple of movies and a CD

But THEN I went online and got some very cute things!

From LaneBryant, I got:
(the top)
(the skirt)

Then I went to Torrid and got:



So ... yeah.  Also, two posts in two days?  What's going on here?

UGH

I encountered serious levels of stupidity and incompetency today ... as well as a severe lack of work ethic ...

And then someone almost hit me on teh drive home tonight ...

So.  Fun day.  >.<

My phone (Galaxy S5) just started glitching yesterday ... it's slow to respond, if it responds at all, and randomly wants to restart ... I just got this phone in April and it recently did a system update so ... I don't know.  I'm wondering if I'm going to need to stop by my provider and see what's going on ...

I love it when it works, but when it doesn't, technology sucks.

EDIT:  I figured it out - it was my external sd card (which I took from my old phone and put into my new one) ... looks like it may have started to go corrupt.  I took it out and now my phone's just fine.
sinderella81: (Super Cool)
And if I put it on fb then my dad'll see it :D

My dad is turning 65 in 2018 ... I know it's a long ways off, but ... I came up with an awesome birthday present for him and my sister's totally on board!!

We are going to make plans to take our dad to Hawaii to the Aulani resort for a week!!!!

OMG I'm so excited!!!
sinderella81: (Wishing)
I will be meeting [livejournal.com profile] ferdalump this Thursday at Disneyland after I get off work!!  W00t!!!!!!

New LJ?

May. 16th, 2014 12:07 pm
sinderella81: (Um ... What?)
LJ changed without notice and I do NOT approve ... O________o

Weird.

In other news, still alive, still working.  Had a blast at BiteCon.  Still writing Suits, venturing into Teen Wolf LOL

yeah.

Me in a nutshell.
sinderella81: (Fuck It!!!)
So ... as some of you know, I am going to BiteCon in April of this year, yes a Teen Wolf convention, hush.

I entered for a chance to possibly host a fan panel at the Con.  About the women of Teen Wolf. And ... I won.  So apparently I'll be hosting a panel all by myself ... cue the panic attack!

I have NEVER done anything like this, have no idea what I'm doing and I'm scared I'm going to fail and fall flat on my face.  And each time I get an email from one of the people from the Con my anxiety goes up even more.  I don't know what my sub topics are, I don't know what the fuck I'm doing and ...

I HAVE HOMEWORK THIS WEEKEND!!!!!!!  I need to put together a basic outline of what I want to talk about.

*head desk*

I'm going to fail.

It’s still a bit painful … there are days where it hurts more than others. Days where it feels like forever, days where it feels like it was just yesterday. She will forever be in my heart … 14 years today.

Why the stars are lined up so perfectly
For everybody, but not for me?
I wish it could be easy
But it never goes that way
It’s never like the movies
It’s never like they say

Well, maybe one day I’ll be back on my feet
And all of this pain will be gone
And maybe it won’t be so hard to be me
And I’ll find out just where I belong
It feels like it’s taking forever
But one day things can get better
And maybe my time will come
And I’ll be the lucky one

Now I can’t stop thinkin’
How this life could be
I can keep pretendin’
But honestly
Does it really make a difference?
Does it really ever change a thing?
It’s never like the movies
It’s never like you think

Oh, maybe one day I’ll be back on my feet
And all of this pain will be gone
And maybe it won’t be so hard to be me
And I’ll find out just where I belong
It feels like it’s taking forever
But one day things can get better
And maybe my time will come
And I’ll be the lucky one

So give me a reason to keep holdin’ on
Something that makes me believe that my life’s gonna change
Seems like everyone else gets a shot, gets a break
I can’t wait for that to be me

Maybe one day I’ll be back on my feet
And all of this pain will be gone (all of this pain will be gone)
And maybe it won’t be so hard to be me
And I’ll find out just where I belong (I’ll find out just where I belong)
And maybe one day I’ll be back on my feet
And all of this pain will be gone
It feels like it’s taking forever
But one day things can get better
And maybe my time will come
And I’ll be the lucky one
And I’ll be the lucky one
sinderella81: (Bad Day)
I went in to work late yesterday, around 10:30am because we had a TON of things due to be filed, so I knew I'd be staying late.  By the way, a lot of documents is over 60!!!!!  (I work in a law firm)

I was at work till 4am this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Four of us were there till four this morning to get everything filed!  For those of you keeping track, that is a 17.5 hour day.

I got home around 4:15am and fell asleep around 4:30am.  But ... stupid internal alarm clock woke me up at 8:15am this morning!  So I got up, showered and went to Target ...got a big chunk of Xmas shopping done ...

So tired.
sinderella81: (Sneer)
I am so pissed right now.

We've been having internet issues.  We can connect, but it's spotty and it takes a few times to get pages to load.  So, I called Verizon on Thursday and started a ticket.  The man I spoke to was really nice and said our modem was probably bad (it's at least 10 years old, if not older) and it looked like something was wrong with the outside line.  So, he said someone would come out between 8 and noon today to fix it and replace our modem.

So my dad and I adjust our schedules so we can be home.  No one showed up.  Just before noon, someone from Verizon called me to 'follow up' and when I say that no one showed up, she said that they apparently did some tests from headquarters and CLEARED THE TICKET!!!!  They said they tried to call, but we don't have any missed calls at the house, nor did they try to call my cell, which was the number I gave them.  They don't have any openings for a tech this weekend, so my dad has to take time off work on Monday so they can come out and do what they were supposed to do today ...

I'm waiting for a supervisor to call me back, because they're apparently at lunch ....

So.  Pissed.  Off.

sinderella81: (Not My Day)
So ... I'm posting from work.  It is 10:48pm as I type this and I've been at work since 8:00am ... and I worked through lunch.  That's ... almost 15 hours.  And I still have something I'm waiting on, so I'll be lucky to get out of here at midnight the way this day is going.  Oh and joy of all joys?  I have to be back here at 8:00am tomorrow.  I haven't eaten since about 1:30pm and I'm a bit cranky.

I intend to be cranky tomorrow as well.
sinderella81: (Fuck It!!!)
Drank iced coffee and soda all weekend ... paying for it now with a low grade fever and an aching back ... kidney infection, joy.

*guzzles water*
sinderella81: (Bad Day)
Get to work - wrist hurts so I put on brace

9:30- send letter giving ex parte notice

1:15 - attorney decides might not do ex parte

1:30 - talk with attorney and figure out who's hearing ex partes Monday in case need to file it tomorrow.

1:45 - attorney runs in and wants to file today.  Problem.  Internet is down.  No email, no internet, nothing.

2:00 - can't get the papers filed.  Attorney gets pissed.

2:30- try to serve amended ex parte notice and then get stopped because opposing counsel took their motion off calendar so we don't need the ex parte anyway (thank goodness we couldn't file it, right?) ... Send new letter taking ex parte off calendar.

3:00 - attorney gets call from another clerk in another department who tells her that all these motions we wanted to move out to late September are being moved up to August 23 - making oppositions due MONDAY O____o

5:10 - leave work.  Internet is still down.

Randomness

sinderella81: (Beauty)
Really trying to get back into using this thing ... so some randomness!

America's Next Top Model is coming back in August ... I haven't watched in like, 4 years, but ... this season is 'Guys v. Girls' ... I'm intrigued.  I might have to watch.  Although it's only going to feed all the bunnies that pop up about all my fave boys competing to be a top model ... *facepalm*

In other news I bought the new Fall Out Boy album 'Save Rock and Roll' while I was on vacation and I absolutely LOVE it ... like, hardcore in love with it.  They did a song featuring Elton FUCKING John!!!!  I mean ... *loves* ... it's a great album and I highly recommend it!
sinderella81: (Eyebrow)
Vacation is in less than three days!  I have all of next week off of work and am leaving EARLY Saturday morning to drive out to El Paso/Sunland Park to stay with besties

I know that my lj of late has been either memes or whining about work.  So .. I'm exceedingly happy to be getting a much needed break.

I will also be sure to post pictures so you all can see that I did indeed take a break from work LOL
