Okay so I'm all moved into my new place and I just TODAY got internet! I'll be able to post more often and I'll be doing make up tutorialssss and other stuff that's still in the works.

Quick update to Janelle's life:

Zach (my ex) does now know where I live, he stayed with me for a weekend, we kissed and cuddled and I missed him, however, that spark just isn't there anymore. For about a year him and I both tried so hard NOT to care for each other that it just kinda disappeared :/ but he's a great guy and I wish him the best.

The guy I liked, likes me, however, he's a senior and he wants to be able to go out and not worry about hurting me, blah blah blah. BUMMER! His loss though...right?

I got a local job at a place called EsScentuals, I love/hate it, there are times when it's really great and other times I feel overwhelmed with work and school but it's money and I need money!

I will upload some pictures of how I've decorated my cottage soon, I've REALLY got to write a speech that I have to give tomorrow, procrastinate much?

Quick Update!

Okay so this is going to be really short but I felt like I needed to post a new blog.

My best friend that I've known since I was probably 4 years old is road tripping to Colorado from Utah and she arrives TODAY!! I don't know if you all know but I grew up in Ogden, Utah up until I was 12 when I moved with my mom to Littleton. My parents are divorced and my dad still lives in Utah.

There was a guy I was interested in and he's great but his life is so easy and mines so hectic right now that he wouldn't be able to handle me ha! But I'm really not worried about it, I'll be moving back to Fort Collins August 9th and there are plenty of guys there...just gotta find them, which I'll post a few blogs about where to find them, what & what not to do, etc.

Also another thing I plan on doing with this blog is some DIY projects I'm working on and maybe some sewing stuff, if you have anything you want me to talk about/give advice on/tutorials/etc let me know!!

Much Love, Janelle <3

Relationship Update

Okay so one major thing that happened a few weeks ago is Zach and I stopped talking completely. Even though it hurts not talking to him and though sometimes my heart still aches for him, my life has kind of fallen in to place as weird as that sounds. And I don't mean that in a relationship kind of way because I am still single and not currently "dating" anyone, I've gone on a few dates but I found I'm not interested in them in that way.

Back to how my life has fallen in to place, I got my new car (which I'm sure Zach knows what it looks like seeing how I'm still friends with his friends on Facebook because last time I deleted them he got mad and I don't really care if they show him my Facebook, I've had him blocked for coming up on a year because I can't let myself hurt myself looking at it), I found the perfect place for me to live (Zach'll never know where I live) [pictures tomorrow!], I'm going back to my natural hair color (Zach has never seen my hair my natural color) I tried dyeing it a week or so ago and it turned out a little too dark so I'm waiting for it to fade/"heal" so I can fix it, I got a job at MAC cosmetics, I believe I have improved on myself as a person (communication of feelings, honesty [not leading guys on :X], etc)  and I feel happy. Basically everything has switched up since we stopped talking, but in a good way. I really hope things are going well for Zach too but I try to avoid thinking about him now, it is hard, it's just for the better.

So that's my update! Check back to see the pictures of my soon to be cottage!

Exciting News!!

I found where I want to/am going to live next year!! It's a very little studio cottage that's close to campus, cheap, and SO CUTE and homey. I had all the intentions to take photos of it when I viewed it so I could show my mom but I completely forgot. Anyway next Tuesday my mom and I will be up there to finish everything up with the lease and he is going to show my mom inside because she didn't get to see it and I'm going to take pictures then and of course I'm going to be uploading them here! SO look forward to seeing pictures!!

Last Blog for Seventeen, First Blog on My Own
