Hi, everybody! I am very sorry for things being so quiet around here! I am still alive! > _<; I have just been feeling bad again and it just affects me emotionally, but I have not forgotten about the blog for even a second!
Today’s post will be a catch-up post! Come and see what I have been up to! 😀
So I mailed out a few packages this month! I mailed out 3 packages to a friend and to an avatar website company that accepts fanmail! The packages were basically early Valentine’s Day presents since I find the good quality candy I bought this month for early Valentine’s Day presents sells out quickly in February… O _O;;;
And before anyone asks, what I meant by good quality candy was that I bought See’s Candy and Russel Stovers candy. ^ _^ The See’s Candy was $11 in total and the Russel Stover king sized chocolate heart I purchased was $1.00 at Dollar Tree. Score! Shipping all of the candy though put my total up to around $20.00, but that is okay. ^ _^ This just means I won’t have to ship candy out next month!
I will be sending Valentine’s Day cards out in February though and I just have to worry about buying Valentine’s Day themed stamps during that time though, but I have some great ones in mind! I always like to send out Valentine’s Day cards for Valentine’s Day because I hate to see people get left out during that holiday… T _T
YAAAAAASS. So, I bought a bunch of CDs from Goodwill to rip to my iPhone. It’s all music I pretty much love to listen to and for each CD being around 2 bucks a pop for about 10-12 songs on each CD, I say that is a screamin’ deal! Better than paying $1.29 for each song on iTunes… > ___> I’m also keeping my CDs I bought around in a CD binder I also got from Goodwill because I want to keep them around just in case I ever have to rip all of them again… Like, if I ever got an Android phone or something like that and couldn’t use iTunes on it. That probably won’t happen in the near future, but you never know!
But I will definitely be keeping my old CDs around until CDs are phased out completely. I’m not sure when that will be, but it is a well-known fact that hardly anyone is buying them anymore though. Dx;;;
Something Creepy on my Bathroom Mirror
So after a trip to Goodwill two days ago, last night, pardon my French, something CREEPY AS SHAT appeared on my bathroom mirror! What appeared on my bathroom mirror were two hands at the center top side of the mirror.
Now everyone, I have not touched the mirror in that spot recently nor has LOCMom. And when I saw two handprints left on the bathroom mirror like that, I immediately freaked.
I could do a whole blog post about this, but in my lifetime as a thrifter, there have been times where I have brought home possessed objects from a thrift store. It all starts out the same: I buy the items from the thrift store, get a certain item I bought home, and on or after the day of I acquire the item, WEIRD SHIT starts happening around the house. Or atleast only to me. You could say you can chalk my thinking weird things are happening to me because of my mental illness, but I somehow know the difference when it comes to the fake things I see and real things I see. Medication helps a lot for me to distinguish the difference as well. 🙂
And the weird crap that happened to happen around my apartment just happened to be creepy handprints on the mirror. Now after freaking out, I went over my Goodwill receipt to see if anything I bought would send up any red flags and it turns out one item put up a red flag for me: a piece of jewelry. I thought it was so cute in the thrift store and wanted to bring it home to wear, but according to this webpage (my go-to webpage concerning haunted objects), jewelry is in the top bracket for being haunted. It even gives me the creeps just talking about it because this whole experience is still pretty raw for me. 😥
So I did what I do to all possessed objects I acquire from the a thrift store: I throw them in the garbage where they go to the dump where they will be buried in the ground never to haunt anyone ever again. This strategy works out well for me most of the time thank god. I sometimes think of thrift stores as hay stacks. Most of the time items in thrift stores are just “hay”, but then you find a “needle” very rarely and when you bring that needle home with you, then ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE in your house. It’s awful. 😦
So the moral of the story guys… If you think you have an item in your home that is possessed by a ghost/spirit, when in doubt, don’t ever donate it, THROW IT OUT. You don’t want that haunted object to haunt someone else’s home who acquires it from a thrift store, do you? I know I wouldn’t… xC
What I did today
So after my traumatic Saturday night, I ended up staying up until 6:00AM due to stress, but I eventually went to sleep and got up in the middle of the afternoon. But I went out and got some errands done!
LOCMom and I went to Raleys, or the Richpants Grocery Store, and LOCMom bought me some Walkers butter cookies! Guys… I love these cookies so much! They only have four ingredients in them and they are basically REAL FOOD which is a win in my book!
After the Richpants Grocery Store, I went to our local Asian market, 99 Ranch Market, to buy some of my Teriyaki sauce. Other than Sprouts and this particular Asian Market, I can never find it anywhere else in town. Boooooooo… T ___T But after going to Asian Grocery Store today, I thought to myself I should learn a few words and phrases in Mandarin because boy was it crowded in there today! O _O The staff and many of the people who shop there are Chinese and do not speak English, so when I go there next time, I should learn a little Mandarin to help me get around better and speak to others if I need to go around them and prepare for such situations like that. I even practiced a little bit of Mandarin tonight with some common words and phrases that will help me out so I will be totally prepared next time! 😀
Chinese New Year is coming up in a couple of weeks, so that may have been why the store was so crowded… ^ _^;
I also went to Dollar Tree next to the Asian Grocery Store and bought some GooGone in there! I really love Googone because it helps get sticky residue off of items that you can’t really get off with a sponge… > _<;;;
After going to Dollar, I went home and relaxed! ^ _^
So that is pretty much what I have been up to and did today! Not much goes on with me these days besides shopping and what-not. ^ _^;
Hoping everyone has been well and thank you for being patient with me!
What has everyone been up to? 🙂
