So I never post here about my actual life despite this being my journal, and all. So bscly I have gotten through (I don't want to say "over" because that trivializes it for me and for everyone else who suffers) whatever bout of depression I had had for about a month there. (seriously, it was so awful.) But I feel mostly normal now! Except now I have a month of laziness to pick up after. My room looks like a warzone and I still don't really feel up to it :(

I have four Monster High dolls now: Draculaura and Frankie, plus the Gloom Beach version of Clawdeen, which is cheaper and comes with less but is still really worth it, and the basic Ghoulia, who is PERFECT. Like all nerdy girls want to believe they're Ghoulia. She wears awesome glasses and has awesome hair and wears a piano key belt and a shirt with cherries and a cute necklace and fishnet arm warmers and has knee-hight black, white, and red converse sneakers that, by the way, are like 6 inch heels. And pink zipper-pull earrings. And a diary with a bonus bookmark! eeeeeee. Clawdeen's 80s-looking rainbow cheetah print bathingsuit is a one-piece with a shorts-looking bottom with a cute (sadly attached) belt, and a removable also 80s-looking pink and black striped top. She has 4 earrings: pink, purple, blue, and green. And her hair is streaked with purple! Therefore she is cooler than the other Clawdeen I thought I wanted. Her hair is so frizzy I had to put it in pigtails with elastic bands from her packaging but that's okay. She also came with sunglasses, a frisbee, and a postcard. Oh, and shoes, too, and a brush and a stand, because Monster High dolls come with everything they need. Ghoulia has a stand and brush too, and also a purse that looks like a cassette tape, and her little owl named Sir Hoots-a-Lot who clips on her arm. Oh and did I mention Ghoulia has sparkly eyeshadow like Draculaura? They could have totally skimped on her eye makeup because of her giant glasses, but nope.

We went to Toys R Us last week and I spotted a single Ghoulia behind all the other dolls. Then Boyfriend confessed he'd already ordered one, so being the kind and benevolent person I am, I tucked her back in the back, where I'm pretty sure someone had deliberately hidden her. I hope whoever it was went back and found her! So that night I got the only Clawdeen they had. Then this weekend I got my Ghoulia! So now I have four and I think that's plenty, for now. I put Clawdeen in a pair of Barbie jeans that are super old over her bathing suit, because it's cold! She looks kind of 90s with her little belly shirt and giant baggy jeans.

I Ghoulia and Clawdeen the little bracelets I'd made for them forever ago so now all four of them have matching friendship bracelets. ...yeah, in my spare time I make doll bracelets. This is my life.

Anyway, I also tasted lobster and cried, but I ate a whole shrimp without gagging!

I've been taking a multivitamin (with hair supplement) for a few months now, and also started taking extra (completely safe, don't worry) hair supplement. The result has been my eyelashes are growing like weeds. I know I've mentioned it before, but now even my bottom lashes are getting into it and there's a definite noticable change in how they look without any makeup. This is important news, okay. Better I talk about this than depressing things, right? Also my bangs are getting longer. Which isn't a surprise, because hair does grow, but still, I'm happy. I really hate my bangs :(

I forget if I even mentioned this but my grandmother tripped and broke her foot. She's getting all gloom and doom like ~this is the beginning of the end~ but really, she didn't lose her balance because she's old or got dizzy or fainted or anything, she just tripped. She's being stubborn and not really letting her foot heal properly, but I hope she does soon because diabetics can lose their feet if they aren't careful.

anyways have I mentioned here that Boyfriend makes me play Magic with him? (and I like it?) I should document that in case future Ivy comes to read about her life. (hi, self! HAVE YOU HAD BABIES YET?)

I still collect Hello Kitty stuff too but they don't have any in the Target dollar section so my collecting has dwindled. Which is just as well because I don't need to hoard any more. I did get a tiny package of stickers from the cards/games section at Walmart though (Boyfriend was buying moar magic!11).

oh! Walmart had their Halloween costumes on sale so I got a Draculaura outfit. It fits because I'm short. I'd worried that I'd be too fat, but it fits! So now I have a costume for next year, assuming I can find pink boots by then. Heh.

oh, one last thing, I hope I get one of those cheap mini Lalaloopsy dolls for my birthday. HAPPY BIRTH MONTH TO ME~~ because as you all know I'm obnoxious about my birthday and I celebrate the whole month because I am obnoxious.

I WILL PLAY MOAR SIMS SOON OK BAI.

In this entry: Spice Girls, Hair, and Writerly Thoughts.

1. Had another Spice Girls dream the other day, but none today/yesterday (my bizarre sleeping schedule makes these things hard to keep track of).

2. Lately my hair has just been fabulous. FABULOUS. It's so soft and unbelievably shiny, I cannot even tell you. I got some leave-in conditioner (the one for long hair from Herbal Essences, since I am their bitch) since it was on sale for 2 bucks, and I am so happy I did. Even if it stays on my hands for hours, the results are soooooo worth it. It works best when put in wet hair, though. It makes dry hair weird. The scalp must also be avoided during application. And just a little pump makes allllll of this hair fabulous. For all of you people who haven't seen me in... a year...? My hair has definitely gotten longer and fuller. Just to keep you updated on my hair.

3. Because I don't feel accomplished unless I make lists:
A few entries ago I mentioned having to rewrite my book. (I'm calling it a book to make myself feel important. I don't actually believe I can be published)
So far I've gotten 2,322 words out of 27,943 switched over to the proper pronouns (since I'm going back through and deleting all of the personal pronouns and switching them to third person pronouns.) AND THEN I'll have to go back and patch up some sentences that just flow awkwardly.
I've also written 238 words of brand-new stuff. I have to tell you that it's disheartening to be working on this thing and not see the word count go up as I'm switching words from "I" to "she". I know it should be quality over quantity, but watching the word count go steadily upwards has been one of the greatest thrills from this whole endeavor (considering all of my other finished stuff tends to fall below five thousand words). It's also hard not to want to go forward with the story in my head and then ruin everything, because if I get too far in my head and not far enough on paper I'll give up on it. Bleh. I might go in and work some more on the next parts, but then I'll lose the energy I need to redo the rest and bleeeeeh. Writing is hard :(

But I am happy, though. My life just feels wonderful.
