Rebel without a clue

Rebel without a clue

I’ve never shopped Rewind before but this theme brought back so many fun memories I had to stop in and buy a few things.  I had a crush on a boy who was really into punk rock and in my lame and desperate attempts to

I went through a punk phase in late in high school and on into my early days in college as well. I’d tell you how much my parents just LOVED that but that would be a lie. lol. There was a cute boy I had a major crush on who was really into punk rock and in my lame attempts to impress him and get his attention, I delved into the world on punk. (Shh! Don’t judge me I was only 17!) It was little bits here and there. I bought a compilation CD and a studded belt at Hot Topic, then a cuff and a plaid skirt with ripped fishnets. I thought I was hot chit – mostly due to the newfound attention from my classmates and because I stood out from what I called the “Abercrombie Barbies” in my school. Like I said, it was lame. lol.

And while 17-year-old me would have been thrilled to have him fall madly in love with my new fashion sense and music knowledge, and we would date and maybe marry and have little rocker babies, after one very awkward date, I realized we were better off as friends.

Somewhere along the line, probably in college, I found a love for punk and hard rock music and my own sense of style that didn’t necessarily need a studded belt to be unique. Gotta love those little life lessons right?

Full Service

He most certainly got what he paid for…

Full Service

(This was the hubby’s idea. He saw the maid outfit I got from Lootbox and made a comment about a maid who “serviced” her employer. And while it started off as a joke, it ended up being a lot of fun with both of us cracking up while I’m trying to move us into position and him being confused about dressing his new avi.)

Fix This Mess

Fix This Mess

The husband and I are in the middle of fixing up our house. We purchased with the belief that it only needed cosmetic repairs – taking down the old wallpaper and wood paneling, replacing switch and outlet covers, fresh coat of paint, etc. 3 years later, we’re elbow-deep in a complete overhaul, our latest project being new floors and ceiling for the family & rec room.

A close RL friend and I decided to document our amusing and painful home restoration experiences. (It’s too comical, horrible, and awkward not too.) Please pardon the shameless self-promotion but if you’re so inclined, you can read more about our home woes here.

Guardian

Guardian

I was chosen from a young age and set on the patch of a warrior. Some become healers, others priests, but, I, I am a guardian. One of only twenty chosen from among our vast people.

Guardians are always watching, waiting, always vigilant. Tasked with protecting our most sacred place – the temple our ancestors built to the gods.

And so I will remain, until I am relieved of my duties due to age or death. This is my calling. This is my life.
