Internet, meet Raj (may or may not be his official name), the newest Martin family member.
GPOY I was wearing cute makeup yesterday.
Best part of the day so far? Waking up with my 8AM alarm, realizing I don’t have to take my birth control pills anymore, and then immediately going back to sleep.
IUD Update, this time behind a cut.
So, I’m not putting this under a cut because we’re all adults here or whatever. (We’re not really, I know, shhhh)
I am getting an IUD inserted today and I am getting really really nervous about it. It’s not that I don’t want the IUD, I wouldn’t have chosen to get one if I didn’t want it. I have been on some form of birth control for a pretty long time, and I have switched from method to method as they continuously stop working their hormonal magic on my heavy and crampy periods. The patch even made me develop an allergy to adhesives that I still have to this day. (Cool. -.-) The IUD is a good option for me, as the localized hormones in Mirena might help better with my period symptoms, and the fact that it lasts 5 years means I’m not spending a shit-ton of money on pills even WITH my insurance covering some of it. I know that I want this IUD.
I’m just scared of the pain of the insertion. Reading other people’s experiences online is not helping me. I know it will be worth it. But I feel like I’m going to throw up now. :/
Things: An Update
1. Went to the dentist, have to get a root canal. It’s not until the 22nd, so hopefully the antibiotics get rid of the infection and thus most of the horrible pain I’m still experiencing, and they do it in the near future.
2. I am almost finished with Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson and it is SO GOOD.
Fun story of my weekend:
Wednesday I drove down to West Virginia to pick up my boyfriend, and we came back to MI on Thursday. Friday we had a rehearsal dinner for the Star Wars themed wedding we were both in on Saturday. It was so much fun, and I’m so happy that we could stand up for our friends. Yesterday I drove Patric back to WV, and today I drove back home. This entire time, since last Tuesday, just about, I’ve had some pretty severe tooth pain. I was taking ibuprofen, even though it’s hard on my stomach, but that just wasn’t cutting it, and I was taking like 2400 mg a day. So, last night when we got back to WV, after spending the day in pain, I went to the ER. I sat in the ER in West Virginia for 4 hours and ended up with a butt shot and a prescription for percocet. Now I’m kind of high on percocet but instead of going to sleep, I’m just bra shopping online and drinking strawberry lemonade Gatorade and texting Patric.
So, my loverly boyfriend got me the best birthday/congrats on library school present. :) He got me some socks, which are awesome. I already have one pair, but I’m obsessed with these socks in ALL OF THE COLORWAYS. He also got me two YA books to further fuel my desire to do children’s and youth services. I hadn’t even heard of either of these, so I’d best start putting my ear to the ground and reading more YA this summer! He got me Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson, which looks to be a retelling of Peter Pan focusing on Tiger Lily as the main character. I’m really excited to read it. :) He also got me The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater; it looks super good, too.
After my friend’s wedding this weekend, I am excited to read and just kind of chill for a bit.
In other exciting news, I bought a new bra online that I am SO EXCITED TO GET. It’s super pretty, but also I found out that there’s a possibility I’ve been wearing the wrong bra size and when I remeasured the suggested way, my size drastically changed. So I’m excited about the new bra because I like having nice underwear, okay?
subbing at a middle school solidifies my hatred for middle school aged children.Me: Ugghh
Patric: Why do you want to do Children's/YA services, then, if you hate kids so much?
Me: It will be different!
Me: No, it won't. There'll be, like, two kids who actually like reading and get books out and want my recommendations/help, and all the rest of them will be there to get on the computers and they'll be like "why can't I use the computer?" and I'll be like "you need to put in your library card # and password" and they'll be like "I don't have a library card" and they'll get one and only check out DVDs and I'll cry a little bit. And people will leave their kids there and get mad when I don't know where their kids are when they come back and I'll be all like "I'm not your babysitter, you're not paying me! Even though you kind of are with tax dollars and such." And I'll spend my time planning programs that almost no one will come to and it will be a thing. I can see into my future and it is a sad one.
I turned 23 today. Yay, me!
The response i wanted to give: Cry about your debt and unemployability full-time.

Soooo, I’m going to Pittsburgh. I just leased an apartment there starting in August.
I hope it’s everything I want it to be.
I need to start telling myself that I will make it everything I want it to be.
