Recipes for Happiness? Tired of Suckiness...

Okay, I have to start this with a rant... sorry... I know most of you are probably sick of hearing people whine about their relationship troubles... I'll try to make the rant short and get onto something more interesting... maybe you'll have some decent advice for me.

So the past two days, I've been getting pretty much ignored by the Boyfriend... I'll also mention that my definition of being ignored when it comes to relationships is not your typical pretending someone doesn't exist definition... you'll see.  Plans last night, nothing special.. he said he'd stop by at the shop to visit me for a bit while his mother did my hair... no show... later he asked me to go see a house, but evidently I didn't get a hold of him soon enough and he made plans with his boss to ride the motorcycles to go see the house... fine... I was a little disappointed, but we were going to hang out when he got back.... hours and hours go by... he finally calls me at 10:30... asks me if I still want to come over.. uh, no. I'm in my PJs... in bed... too late.   Today... he doesn't even call me till almost 7 pm... side note, I ask him to call me when he gets out of work so I know he's available... well he didn't call me... he went and had lunch with his friend... came home... chatted with his mom... went to sleep.... calls me at almost 7pm and asks me to come over... well since he mentioned that we were going to hang out with his friends tonight, I had actually spent time on getting ready... I get over there, go to his room and he starts calling some guy about a motorcycle, whoopdi doo... I turned on the TV really low, at volume 9 out of 100... he turns around and turns it down to 0... I left the room and stared at the fish... finally he comes out and mentions going to the movies... eh, I didn't really want to go, but I wanted out of the house since I had spent time to get ready... then he changes his mind... he wants to stay in... but he wants to watch some crappy movie that I don't get because it's the 3rd in a trilogy I've not seen. So after that movie is finally over, he leaves for a bit, comes back with popcorn and starts playing on the internet.... do you have any idea how sick I am of going over to his house only to sit and watch him play on his computer for hours?! I start getting restless and decide to leave... he gets pissed off... but he hadn't hardly acknowledged I was there, and hadn't even said a single remotely nice thing to me... I just felt like some speck... unwelcome.. like I was wasting my time.  so I left... anyway, he calls me later about a bulletin I posted in haste beeeiotching and whining... asking me questions that every time I started to answer, he'd talk over me... he evidently knew all of the 'answers' to these questions from his own poor assumptions... so finally I asked him if I was allowed to talk, and after again being interrupted, he finally let me talk... I straightened out all of his thoughts...

This is what trips me out... he had the gall to be pissed off that I came into his room (door was open) *unannounced* (he asked me to come over) while he was in the process of calling this guy about the motorcycle (this was his rebuttal for my being annoyed he muted the tv)... Might I add that he uses one of those stupid bluetooth headsets so I can't even tell when he's on the phone... I guess from now on I have to knock on the doorframe (since the door is open) and ask permission to come in even when he invites me over...  Well unsurprisingly throughout the argument he kept trying to get me to break up with him, to which I finally responded that he needs to grow up and be a big boy and do it himself if he wants out.  He kept saying that it was what I wanted, when I had to correct him that I've made no mention of breaking up with him in months, and as a matter of fact had only been mentioning fixing our problems... he kinda got quiet after that and said he was tired and hung up on me.. funny how someone can be tired at 11 PM even though they just woke up 4 hours prior... coincidentally.

Sigh... Rant over... and that's the short version... maybe someone out there has the advice of what to do... about what, I don't know... I'm just getting tired of things backfiring.

In other news, McDonald's french fries were really good tonight.. but I swear the kid that was working there was like 12 years old.

I also realized how much it irritates me to see people parked on the wrong side of the road... you're supposed to be on the RIGHT side of the road... if you're one of those people who swerve left and park just because it's easier, don't talk to me anymore... same rules apply in the cul de sac...

So now I'm on a hunt to find an XP Pro CD, since I doubt the boyfriend will be sharing his with me. I swear he makes me feel like I'm back in highschool... how dumb is that?

I miss driving... well that's a lie... but after getting all worked up tonight I went out and just drove around aimlessly... it was nice... although I had a lot of not so good thoughts about the city... kept envisioning catastrophes and such... kinda weirded me out... went under an overpass but for some reason I kept seeing it all broken and demolished... makes me want to move... but I miss driving in a therapeutic sense.

So who's ready for 2008 to be over with? *raises hand*

*tries to think of something interesting*

Ooh, here's a question for the females out there... been looking to try out new makeup... currently use that trendy mineral shtuff, and i like it, but I'm getting bored... I've got very light skin, and I like very dark eye makeup... black to be exact, or maybe intense colors... so what are some of your favorite cosmetics and why? I'm looking to hear about long lasting and intense colors... and liquid foundation doesn't work for me... so if you've come across something that was just awesome, lemme know!

And a question for the guys... what's the recipe for keeping a guy happy?

Ooh, another question for the girls, just out of curiousity... what's the recipe for keeping a girl happy?

Will compare and contrast, and hopefully come to some idea of how it can be beneficial.

I have a feeling tomorrow I'll be lonely, yet again... It kinda makes me sad that this is one of my last homework free weekends for a long while... this sucks.

 Unless it's fiction, or VERY amusing, I can't read it... I'll look into it, but there better be a bunny with a pancake on it's head!

Okay... so I admit it... I got him the headset as a christmas present.... but in my defense, I thought he'd only wear it driving... he's also expressed his hatred of people walking around talking to themselves... but since he works and has to go on base on a regular basis, they aren't allowed to hold cells, but they can use headsets while driving... 

But he wears it everywhere! AGH!! Someone shoot me... I can't stand him wearing it as he plays on the computer... if he was doing something worthwhile, and needed both hands, understandable... surfing craigslist? I don't think so.

I think I told you before I kinda had my doubts as to why you stay with him, but now its confirmed: He wears one of those annoying bluetooth headsets?!?! No good person does that. Dump this dude now!

Went to Borders tonight and picked up two books, The Apocalypse Reader, and The Meaning of Night... but I needed to make a note for myself of two other books I wanted to pick up after I'm done reading these, so you can ignore this comment unless you're looking for books to read.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (this was actually recommended to me personally by one of my professors last spring.. I just had forgotten the title, only that it had a picture of a black upside down dog on the cover... just found the title, so thought I'd post it somewhere for reference)

Water for Elephants (not *so* sure I want to read this... it seemed interesting in the store, but I haven't looked into it enough to decide if it's something I'll enjoy)

Okay, done noting for now... back to my book!

 I love my mineral foundation for the convenience and quick apply, but, my annoyance runs with using concealer with it... the mineral concealers don't work well, and normal concealers look funny with the mineral foundation... and their eyeshadows are boring... I'll have to take a look at the aromaleigh one though... sounds like a step up from neutral colors

Hi Anime,

Wish I had some sparkling bit of advice about the guy situation- but shit, I got 20 years on ya, and the mofos are still pulling the same stupid crap you've described!

As to the makeup, I too use mineral foundation and have found it the best for my skin. I need good covg as my skin is blotchy and I have some broken capillaries I need to cover. Right now I'm using BE as I like the convenience of being able to pick it up at makeup stores. But previously I was using a great one purchased over the internet called Mineral Secrets. It gave flawless covg when used in the following manner....instead of regular kabuki use flat tipped dome kabuki. After loading brush, spritz brush with light water mist and apply for beautiful complete covg. I loved that stuff-just hated nearing the end and having to wait for a shipment to arrive.

Another great mineral product to look into is Aromaleigh. I never liked their foundation, but their mineral eyeshadows and eyeliners were fantastic. If you like dramatic eyes, their forums are great b/c people will send in eye shots and application techniques along with product lists of what they used. Their pricing is MUCH more reasonable than other mineral lines, and the products are mostly all natural w/o synthetic fillers or chemicals  ( she marks the ones she's had to include chemicals in for stability purposes ) But best of all is most all of the products are available in sample sizes for no more than  a few bucks each. I still have tons of baggies of eyeshadows and eyeliners that I've had for 3 years and they're still as good as new.

 Yes, I agree lol... he had the guts to call me up today like nothing happened and invited me out to hang out with his stupid friends... of course I had to say no since I felt gross and still needed to shower... this is how my life is, I get all ready to stay in, and he attempts to drag me out when I either feel gross, or when I got ready to stay in (no makeup, ponytail, comfy clothes)... boys suck.

 My problems with liquid foundation are numerous... either I'm having a dry skin day and the foundation makes that obvious by making my skin look flaky and gross... or... if I put enough moisturizer on, foundation looks awesome for about an hour, but then it tends to do weird things where my skin gets oily and makes me look funky... so that's why I liked the mineral foundation.. I'm thinking about trying that neutrogena foundation that's sorta powdery, sorta creamy.. I just want slightly more coverage (for when my skin gets blotchy as you know.. that and those stupid freckles) than the mineral powder gives... but not attempt full on liquid again... although I had some mild success with that l'oreal true blend liquid... but that was a glass bottle that my cat liked to play with... and has broken... makeup everywhere... not fun to clean up...

Like I said the other night............uh......guys are stupid, I am one I should know.

 Lol, yes we have one... too bad I can't get in... "Adults are not admitted without children" and I don't like kids... they're always sticky.

Yeah some of them can be massive. Do you have a childrens musuem there? Those places are so much fun!

 Nature? You mean that thing with the trees and the dirt and the air? No thanks... maybe I'll head down to one of the art museums.. that's always fun.. although I tend to get lost in them... literally.

Yeah, I know how that can be. I don't know about where you live but in my city our goverment has a really citizen friendly site and they have listing of all the neat things the city (or city places such as library, nature preserves etc) and it also has a link to the parks & rec site which has even more info. Sometimes you can find really neat things. I know alot of our libraries (I'm in a reasonably big city) so really cool free things, like they had one where some woman came and taught everyone to make gourmet soups and recently they had a drum circle at one! I had to work during that though :(. Also, if your a big nature enthusiast, they generally have listing of parks, walking trails, nature reserves etc... Thats how I tend to occupy myself when I feel the need to be occupied lol. But Im a pretty content person. My suggestion would be to find something you love doing and go crazy with it. Ex. I like to take pictures, so once in awhile I'll randomly just go walking through town trying to find awesome pictures waiting to be taken. Maybe if you like animals you could do some volunteering with the aspca or other localized shelters to your area :)

 Well if thats the way your boyfriend acts maybe its time to tell him to man up quit acting like a spoiled child, but then again calling him a boyfriend is a bit of a stretch

 lol, I remember using that outlast lipstick as temp tattoos in highschool... I just wear carmex since my lips have color (see, just carmex in that blog photograph at the top right)  I'll have to check into that primer shtuff though... super dry skin is a pain to deal with.

Too bad I have no real friends to hang out with and make plans with... *sigh* well school's starting again soon... maybe I can make some new ones...

 Wow Foamy... that was... of no help lol. I guess in my case Boyfriend acts more female than I do... he calls when he's upset and whines until he gets his way... I tell him why I'm unhappy, and he tries to turn it around and play victim so that he's the focus. I've never met someone that acts like everything is about him the way Boyfriend does.

And I like your siggy 'no new codes, stop asking' lol I was half expecting it to be a badge protest.

Guys are easy to keep happy, when there is something wrong don't say "nothing" don't tell them about your problems unless you want to hear their way to solve said problem, don't let something annoy you for 3 months before bringing it up, and don't argue in circles for hours just to hear the sound of your own voice, oh and really jealousy is a really annoying trait in any person male or female 

I won't even discuss sex since all that entails in men is the correct application of friction

Maybe you should try ignoring him. Like not in a mean way, just make your own plans, do your own thing and let him call you and let him put the effort in b/c it sounds as though you've done enough of that. If you try it and you don't hear from him for an entire week maybe you should look into your other options.

On the make-up note, I love covergirl outlast lipstick and foundation, but I never use the actual foundation. It comes in like a 2 part deal and one is like a premakeup toning lotion with some suncreen and it works magic on your skin plus it can last through heat and humidity. The lipstick works because they have some really light shades (i have to have very natural lipstick lol) and it stays on for like 14 hours or something, even when you eat and drink! There website also offers some pretty cool make-up tips and "looks".

 I can't tell you what keeps all girls happy, but for me it's saving some time for just myself, enjoying the world around me...I like to pick something really random and just do it, like laser shows at the planetarium or going to the zoo or even just going backcountry hiking. And of course all my pets, friends and family lol :)
