How I Ended up in the Box

I knew today was going to be an “interesting” day from the beginning, from the moment I saw one of our gazillion ton dies out in the middle of the five line road, broken into pieces, not even a mile away from work. Big wigs from one of the main companies that we do business with were here, walking around, getting in the way, someone had shoved a million things into the tool crib where you couldn’t even put your foot down without stepping on something, and of course me bumping my arm on the lift and having to fill out an incident report because my supervisor was still here. And that is just the first few hours. Yep, great day. I know I complain about my job a lot, and I guess you’re probably wondering “Hannah, if you hate your job so much, why did you take it? Why don’t you do something else?” Well, number one, the job market sucks right now. If I quit and go somewhere else, either I will have to take a $4 an hour pay cut, or take a $3 an hour pay cut and I’m 30 minute commute will turn into a 45 minute to an hour commute. “Why don’t you apply for a different position?” Nothing is available and you have to be at the same position for 6 months before you are able to apply for a position. Barely making to 3 months right now.“So why did you take the job?” That’s a good question. Guess it’s time I should explain how I ended up in the white box.

Week One of Blogging

A week ago yesterday, I put my first blog post on Wix. A week ago today, I made my WordPress account and put my first two post that were originally on Wix on my WordPress blog. Currently my WordPress blog has had 70 views, 29 visitors, and 4 subscribers. I’m surprised at that. I’m surprised that I have any views or even subscribes. Those numbers may be low to most of you, but for me it’s way more than I expected. Of course my Wix blog is not doing as great because a) it doesn’t have the community like WordPress does, and b) my link to my blog is still messed up, so even if you accidentally clicked on one of my links to get there you still wouldn’t see it. But that is beside the point. The point is for something that I started randomly, it is going better that I thought it would so I want to thank the ones who have been reading. Whether you landed on a post on purpose or it was a happy accident, thank you still. So, as this first week ended, I came up with some goals that I would like to reach by the end of my first month blogging: clicky clicky for more

A color run and other fun…

For the first time in a while, I actually had things to do during the weekend besides getting groceries and catching up on laundry and videos games. I did my first 5k, and it was also my mother’s birthday. Now first off, I’m not big on exercise just for fun, even though I have a gym membership that I really need to use. What makes this 5k different is it was a color run. Color Vibe to be precise. clicky clicky for more

25th Post, 25 Questions

As I start going through the process of starting… to start blogging…again?, I’ve been looking for some ideas to kick start things. One of the things I came across was Megan Has OCD‘s post with 25 get to know me questions. Since I’m still new to it all, and the blogging world doesn’t know much about me, I figured this would be a good post to add to my upcoming randomness. And since I made it to having 25 posts, I figured what better than to have 25 questions on my 25th post. So here we go.

The Questions

1. What is your middle name?

Victoria, but you would already know that if you had read this.

2. What was your favorite subject in school?

Any class that didn’t have homework. Seriously though I would say history , with non-math science as a close second. I have my 5th grade “homeroom” teacher to thank for that. She taught both social studies and science, and made it all interesting to me.

3. What is your favorite drink?

♫♪I’d like to buy to world a Coke and keep it company♪♫


♫♪It’s the real thing♪♫

If you have no idea what this random song is, then here you go.

4. What is your favorite song at the moment?

Hmmm…If I had to choose, I guess I would say “I Could Use a Love Song” by Maren Morris.

Though I usually have a handful of songs that I cycle through at a time.

5. What is your favorite food?

Just about anything with potatoes and cheese.

6.What is the last thing you bought?

Butter, mushrooms, and an onion? I had forgotten some things at the grocery store.

7.Favorite book of all time?

That’s a hard one. I used to read a lot, now not so much, though I just started reading The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines.
The one book that I can think of is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. Yeah, some parts of the book were a little over dramatic at times, but I think the appeal is that through all the things Jane had to go through, she held her convictions and made it through to the other side of things, getting her happy ending.

8. What is your favorite color?

♫♪But loving him was RED♪♫

It’s red, if you didn’t get the hint.

9. Do you have any pets?

No. Maybe one day I will talk about it, but today is not the day.

10. What is your favorite perfume?

Sensual Amber by Bath and Body Works, but because they are assholes and discontinued it I have to settle for the body spray online and special times in store. I have been wearing that since it came out holiday season 2006! Screw you BBW!

11. What’s your favorite holiday?

Used to be Fourth of July when I was younger, because the closer the 4th was the closer my birthday was. Well… I guess it’s still cool now that I’m older.

12. Are you married?

Nope. Been with my boyfriend for over 7 years though. As he would put it, “I’m happily unhappily taken.”

13. Have you ever been out of the country? If so, how many times?

Not yet, but I want to travel so bad. Hopefully in the next few years I will get the chance to.

14. Do you speak any other language?

I can say some random words in Spanish. Does that count?

15. How many siblings do you have?

Two sisters, two half sisters (one from each parent), and if you count my mother’s disappeared husband, two step sisters. I also supposedly have two older brothers out there somewhere because my father is a man whore. The past two years my mother has told me about a new brother that I didn’t know about. Speaking of which, it’s getting to be about that time. Who knows, I might have to update this. As far as I know, I’m the youngest out of everyone.

16. What is your favorite shop?

I don’t  have the money to just shop where ever all the time, but I like going to Ross. All my dresses for high school dance have been from there, and a lot of my nice shoes too. I got my whole outfit that I wore to the last compay Christmas party from there. Retail price was roughly $150, and I got shoes, dress, and small matching bag for $70. If I ever need dress up clothes or nice jackets, I always go to Ross first.

17. What is your favorite restaurant?

I don’t even know right now. I either don’t have the time or money to go somewhere nice, and the last “sit down” restaurant  I went to was Steak N Shake. Sad, I know.

18. When was the last time you cried?

A few weeks ago. Someone I knew died in a car wreck along with her boyfriend. Their 3 year ago son was in the car and was rushed to the hospital, but he survived. 

19. What is your favorite blog?

Hmmmm…. if I had to pick, currently it is You Must Be This Tall To Ride.

20. What is your favorite movie?

I love so many so I’ll just be more specific with it.

What is your favorite Disney movie?

The Little Mermaid. Most people have a Disney movie. That is mine. If I could get liposuction and dye my hair red, I would go to Disney World and beg to be Ariel for a day. I used to sing “Part of Your World” word for word when I was little. Think I still can for the most part…

♫♪I wanna be where the people are♪♫

21. What is your favorite TV show?

I don’t get the TV to myself unless everyone is asleep when I get home from work. If that’s the case, I just put on HSN for background noise so it’s not that lonely feeling. Lame, right?

22. PC or Mac?


23. What phone do you have?

Samsung Galaxy S5

24. How tall are you?


25. Can you cook?

For the most part yes. I’m a little out of practice since I haven’t had a functioning kitchen for over a year, but I think I’m good.

Well, that was a little longer than I expected,  but I enjoyed it. Did/have you’ve done one of these of your own? Let me know; I would love to read and learn about all of you, random person reading this.

Until next time-

Five Goals for the Next 5 Years

With my birthday a month away, I’ve been thinking about how my life as gone so far. Think about the experiences I’ve had, good and bad. The achievements, and mistakes. Moments that I would love relive or redo.
Though my life could be so much worse than it its, I’m still not at a point where I’m content with where I am or where I’ve been. So in light of that I’ve decided to make a list of goals I would like to achieve within the next five years. Some are life long dreams, some are necessary for health and happiness. Let’s get to it.
