Sorry this is only my second post (long time lurker) but seriously….  FREAKING TORNADO WARNINGS AND CYCLONIC WINDS ON MY ENGAGEMENT PARTY WEEKEND!??!!?!?

No photos. No party. No family and friends. No gushing over the beautiful dress I have painfully picked out. No nothing. Just the slight chance of losing power and my parents facing their home being flooded. I’m so frustrated.

Not to mention all the ruined food and the super expensive cake (that was still delivered, we couldn’t cancel it was too late). So now I’m ruining my wedding diet by shoving cake in my face. Ugh 🙁

This probably sounds awful, there are people dying in my state and it’s seriously an emergency situation out there, but I’m so disappointed.

Newlywed life isn’t all happiness and sunshine and I am kinda tired of people looking at me like I have a second head when I say that (either that, or maybe we are weird and everyone else is blissed out and not fighting over money and living space and household chores and work stress).

ENOUGH with the F*CKING BACON ADMIRATION! It is NOT funny! “OMG, this is epic! A bacon scented candle! YESSSSS” OH STFU! DO you even have ANY idea the torment pigs endure to become bacon??? Eat it and enjoy it if you must, but STOP acting like it’s the greatest thing in the f*cking world! GET A LIFE!

ahhh. that does feel better.

@Mrs. Dragon:  haha. I think part of it is the halo of endorphins surrounding the first bit of marriage. I’ll probably be walking on cotton candy for a while. hehe

@bunnyharriet:  bacon related items need to go, bacon itself deserves the hype!

I just need SOMEONE to give me a chance at a freakin’ interview!!!!!! (Job searching :/) Also..

The Cover Letter: can we all just agree that this is just a bunch of bull****? It seems like half the time companies won’t even READ them. They might skim, and ONLY if just your first line is worthy. Half the time they are completely ignored! And it’s all just a bunch of MALARKY!!!! Of course you’re going to try to bend over backwards to write this incredible piece about how awesome you are! Not one person is going to write “Well I might not be qualified for this job, but I’m giving it a shot” or “I am a really hard worker but I get bored easily so I’ll probably leave the company within a year or so” or “I don’t really want this job but it’s a backup plan”…. I mean, EVERYONE is trying to use big words and talk themselves up!!!! Some people really are as awesome as they say they are in their cover letter, but how can you tell?

 

Also…. you want me to upload my resume. And then you want me to retype in detail everything that was listed in my resume. WHHHHHYYYYYYY?!?!?!?!? It took about 45 minutes to apply to this one job that was like that (it also included a VERY detailed questionnaire… the kind that asks about 70 questions like “Would you say your coworkers find you hard working? Unlikely, maybe, Likely” and “Would you ever steal from your company?”) and then they almost IMMEDIATELY got back to me like “ohhhh we’ve already accepted all the applications at this time, we cannot process yours.” W.T.F…. then take down your listing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

End rant lol

Not wedding related, but why the HECK do you think it’s a smart idea to start at a new company and bad mouth my coworkers to me!? And then talk yourself up about how great you are and how much better things were where you came from. THEN GO BACK THERE! No one wants you here anyway!!

Phew. Thanks for that 🙂

This is a nice idea, especially since my younger siblings are here and I can’t get out what I really want to. 

For my Dad: PLEASE GO TO REBHAB – OR GO AWAY. You are ruining everything with your selfishness. At this point, you have destroyed your relationship with your oldest son and I, but you still have time for the ‘little’ ones. As far as bringing your one millionth girlfriend (of two weeks) to my wedding… NO. For once in my life I am putting my foot down. It has nothing to do with her, she is lovely. It has everything to do with the fact that you are a drama queen and if you bring someone with you, you will be 1000 x worse. This is the first thing I ever asked you for, and you are saying I am being selfish? GET OVER IT.

For the people that keep asking for invites to my wedding: STOP IT!!!! NO, YOU CAN’T COME! THERE IS NO ROOM – AND I DON’T EVEN LIKE YOU ANYWAY! You only want to eat dessert and see my DIY projects … you’ll see the photos!!!!

And breathe…

@Sunnyday278:  this also really pisses me off about retyping your entire resume.  I don’t get why you’d like me to send you a copy of it in a word document and then like me to copy and paste the entire effing thing into your online thing too.  Even when applying for jobs within my company they do that…such a waste of time.  Either you want it on paper or in a document or you want it in your little boxes online.  Why do you need both?

Oh man, I have several and they’re all on the same topic.

 

The fact that I am pregnant does not make my belly public property! So STOP TOUCHING IT!! Especially without asking. Especially if you’re a stranger. I am not a touchy-feely person to begin with and am getting so tired of my personal space being invaded!

ENOUGH WITH THE HORROR STORIES ABOUT HOW TERRIBLE YOUR BIRTH WAS AND HOW IF I THINK I FEEL AWFUL NOW WAIT UNTIL LATER IN THE PREGNANCY BECAUSE THIS IS NOTHING AND IT’S GOING TO GET SO MUCH WORSE. How is this supposed to be helpful?! At five and a half months pregnant I still vomit nearly every day, I’m at a job that requires me to be on my feet 8 1/2 hours a day so my back and feet ache, I’ve gotten kidney stones twice due to the way my body is processing things differently, my asthma has gotten worse and baby pushing on my lungs sure doesn’t help, I get heartburn every day, and thanks to the hormone changes (can’t believe I’m about to say this online, but whatever) I’ve also had my depression I thought I had a handle on years ago coming back and my doctor and I are doing our best to control it. But really, thank you so much for letting me know that whatever I’m dealing with now, it will be twice as bad later in the pregnancy. And when I try to make it into a joke to shut you up where I tell you I guess I’ll be less afraid of labor then since I’ll be quite ready to not be pregnant anymore if it’s going to be that bad – the proper response is NOT to say, “Oh no, you should DEFINITELY be afraid of labor. Seriously, expect everything to go wrong, it’s horrible.” WTF IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?! Thank God for my one co-worker who recently gave birth and will come over to talk to me whenever she hears me get another one of these spiels, and reassure me about it.

@Wonderstruck:  I will never understand why people do either of those things.  First of all, you would NEVER dream of coming to rub my belly when I’m NOT pregnant, so what the hell about a baby being in there makes you think you can invade my personal space and touch my body?  That happened to me often when I was pregnant – pissed me right off.  A good friend or a family member, not so annoying – but you could ask first.  Strangers??? WTF are they thinking.  I couldn’t believe how many times that happened.

As for shitty pregnancies and labour – guess what.  If it wasn’t worth it, people wouldn’t do it all the time, every day for hundreds of years on end.  Everyone has their story, no one needs to shove it down your throat to terrify you while you’re pregnant and clearly can’t go back and change your mind on whether you’re doing it or not.  Regardless of how crappy it may be now or how much it will or will not hurt – it will be worth it, and that’s all you need to know.

WHY are birdcages used so much in weddings? They’re pretty, but to me that isn’t any different than having a ball-and-chain decoration on top of the cake. People call that tacky, but isn’t the birdcage the same thing? The last thing I want to be thinking about (or my new husband, or my guests to be thinking about) is being locked up, or trapped.I don’t want the emphasis to be on my lack of freedom, or think about it as a lack of freedom at all.

Am I the only person who wonders about this?
