A weekly meme by Ginger of GReads!, but until further notice you can find it over at Kate’s Tales of Books and Bands. In the meme I'll talk about music and showcase it here each week. And this week, I'm going to talk about... real life.
End of September was one of my more difficult moments I've had in the last few years. My boyfriend of 2 1/2 years broke up with me by text message on Monday (September 24th) and then Sunday (September 30th) I found out he cheated that prior weekend with a girl I know. Hence one of the reasons why I've checked out of blogging lately. So I wanted to take some time, clear my head, and figure out what I need to move on and make things better for myself. I found out that many people were on my side and very supportive for me. It reminded me how much love there is out there in the world when you least expect it.

So this is dedicated to all the readers who have ever been lied to, cheated on, and broken up in a horrible way by an ex... these songs are for those people who did us wrong.

Now even with everything, I've had time to reflect... I've learned that I don't hate HIM, I hate what he did. It's a very long story as to why, but I've risen about the issue and decided to forgive him and just move on. It was hard, but it was for the best. I also saw the silver lining, without him doing what he did, I wouldn't have landed my second job as a make-up special effects artist! So I'm thankful for the screwed up situation lol So there is always some good that comes out of the bad folks.
"Oh my gosh, where has she been!?" "Has anyone seen her!?" "Nope... I think she fell off the face of the planet!", lol probably something like that, maybe not quit, but maybe you might have wondered in that context where the heck I've been! Well over the course of the week, I'll be getting back to the blog, not as quickly as I'd like due to Halloween creeping closer.

Anyway, I've mentioned in a prior post that I've been working. And not just any job... a haunted house job! I get to do special effects make-up and also work as an actor in one of the three houses! WOOHOO! It's loads of fun, not for everyone cause you work in crazy conditions. Worked in 30 degree weather and raining one sunday! I ended up getting sick and on top of that loosing my voice left and right... I've got bruises like a real horror movie victim cause I'm literally running around a room and screaming!

Now below are some pictures from my job... the first one I'm on the right in the corner, with the white shirt on and ripped blue jeans. You can't see my face, but its all kinds of twisted makeup lol The second is one of my co-workers who is in the same room as I am. He uses a chainsaw to scare the crap out of people!

(This is me, in a real vintage 1800's shirt that I own, which I bloody up. Make-up done by one of the head make-up guys! Yes, that blood is really in my hair lol)

(This is my handy-dandy job of painting this creepy clown face. That is also blood dripping down her face. She is a ticket taker at the clown house. Yeah, we got some scary clowns!)

So as you can see I've been SUPER busy. I'm running around friday-sunday with no time to spare and starting this thursday we are doing it too! So four days of crazy fun for moi... plus add in school and trying to keep up with the rest of my life... books and the blog have taken a back seat for the month of October. I'll fill you all in on the rest of what has been happening this week. So stick around readers... I'm not going anywhere :)
