Hello everyone! I’m back… years later. It’s been so long. I’m ashamed.

First of all, I just wanted to say how nice it has been to see comments and emails trickle in years after I even updated the site. It makes me feel so humbled to know that there are either new people who have stumbled across the site or some of my older friends who come back just to check on it.

I swear I have missed the site so incredibly much, I have also missed all of you. Meeting new people, catching up with the old friends, and helping out you guys whenever you need it. I know you guys have to know how it is. Life just gets in the way sometimes. It will absolutely run you over when you least expect it.

I promise that I will be updating the site soon and adding new content. I’m not even sure what content sites like ours offer anymore. It’s all gone haywire since MySpace died. We used to have a purpose: making your MySpace pretty. Now what do we DO!? Haha. If anyone has any suggestions, feel free to let me know. I’m up for new ideas. I’ll try anything once!

As I have hinted above… life certainly hasn’t been kind to me these past couple years, and boy do I have some juicy stories to tell you all, if you’re interested. It’s been so long… I don’t even know how long it will take for someone to read this. That’s all for now.

PS: I’m sure I’ll rewrite this soon. I was just excited to let you all know I was back.

XOXO, Mel

please speak well of me.

hello, my darlings! once again i wonder how life has it’s little way of hindering your plans and intentions. i never intended to be absent from blogging or the site for the past few months, but like i said life has it’s own plans!

so much has happened lately! i’ve been so incredibly busy with college and work, i don’t even know where to start! in the last blog i had just informed you i had finally found a job as a server after months of being unemployed after getting fired at McDonald’s (best thing that ever happened, lol.) i absolutely hated serving, and i was fortunate enough to get a job with my cousin that is more like a desk job, (which i love, well parts of it anyways.) for a two week period there is was working both part time jobs and going to school full time, which was simply horrible! i feel sorry for anyone who has to do something like that all the time, i had no time to sleep or study or to even do homework!

i’ve also had a rocky road going on in the personal relationship department, which for awhile there really got to me, but the fantabulous news is, i have tackled my problems head on! i feel better than i have in over a year! like i’ve mentioned twice already, life, it certainly has it’s way of getting to you! these days, though i’m so much more like i used to be, which is a great thing. i feel like that little chip on my shoulder that everyone seems to get every now and then is simply gone. i’m so much more happy and content with everything.

being happy and content is a tricky feeling though, because if you’re like me you start to wonder how long will it last. how long will it be until you find yourself back in a bad position? don’t you just want to kick those thoughts right out of your head? i know i wish i could.

i have basically decided i pretty much hate college. haha. last semester my grades were not the best, i had more academic type classes then. for the first part of the semester i had all a’s, then i had to start working two jobs while going to school full time for a two week period, and since i had no time to study or do homework i fell way behind and never really caught up, but luckily for me somehow i passed!

this semester my classes are more like electives, including a class on photoshop and wait for it… web design. my teacher for those two classes (the same guy) has no idea what he’s doing. i have to contain myself from being over dramatic about how he ‘teaches’. he will literally sit there in silence for fifteen minutes while reading the book then ‘teach’ us something for five minutes and do it all over again. even the kids in the class who have not used photoshop or have designed a web page can tell he’s got no idea what he’s doing. it’s quite frustrating.

work on the other hand is great! i actually find myself looking forward to work these days! i mean the job isn’t super glamorous or anything, but my co-workers (most of them) are amazing. i have so much fun there sometimes it almost seems criminal.


in website news, i have added a gallery to the site which is where all the retouched photos, desktop wallpapers, and blends will be kept from now on. check it out here! ♥

hear you me, my friends.

hello again, my lovelies! lots of news to tell! first off i’ve turned rock & redbeard to a celebrity gossip site! i know i am a sucker for celebrity gossip, and maybe some of you are as well. i haven’t posted anything in a week or so, because i hadn’t had time to promote it, so hear i am promoting and (hopefully) you will check it out, so i can start gossiping again! haha.

in other news, after months of being jobless as some of you may know i have found a job! i’ll be a server, i’m sort of nervous about it, but what i really need is a fresh start. :)

don’t worry, i will still be making time for the sites. especially (if you all think it’s a good idea) updating the celebrity gossip daily at the least. i would like to say a special thank you to all my new affiliates, and since i’ve had such a great response i will keep the affiliate application open to everyone for a little while longer.

i think that is all for now. short and sweet.

where do i go from here?

Without You | Dixie Chicks

this month has been one of the worst of my semi-short life. i have lost a lot recently, i lost my boy for reasons unbeknownst to me, i lost my job, now i’m worried about losing my new kitten T.I. like i lost Gucci, I was planning on taking him to the vet this week so i can get him checked out and know he’s healthy so i don’t spend all my time worrying about losing him, too. since i lost my job the other day, i can’t because i have no money, i’m already $20 short on my car payment this month, and i only have a half a tank of gas to take me where i need to go, such as job searching. not to mention T.I. needs cat litter and is going through his cat food like there’s no tomorrow. to add to my stress, my parents and friends are on my case about taking college classes this fall. so basically i am completely stuck, i have no idea where to go from this point. to make it worse i feel like there is no one i can talk to who will actually listen and support me, i have only found one person in my 19 years on this earth that did that, and it took me 18 1/2 years to find him. now he’s gone with little to no explanation, definitely not anything that makes any sense.

now i’m so completely stressed about everything i keep making myself nauseous everyday with worry, literally. nothing seems to go right, this new layout i hate it. even after i kept it off the site for days to make sure it’s what i wanted on the site, but it’s on now and i hate it. really, i do. the only thing that keeps me semi-sane throughout the day is putting all my attention into the site, and the occasional snuggle with T.I. music is helping me a lot, as well, but all these are only temporary fixes.

off that subject…
how do you feel about online dating sites? i know some people that are on them, i never really asked how well it’s working for them, but i know we all have the slightest opinion about them. i’m not talking about the online booty call websites, but the people that put themselves online because they want a relationship. i always thought that if i put myself on one, some serial killer would find me and chop me up into bits and pieces, but i look at some of the people at Wal-Mart and say that as well. haha.
what is your opinion?

okay, away we go.

hello, world.
it’s been a long time since i’ve updated the site, a lot has went on. i know it seems like an excuse that i have used many times before, and a generic excuse that every other website in the world has used countless times, and i can honestly admit that at times when i’ve used said excuse before, i was really just lazy. now, i can honestly say there’s been a lot going on. life happens, and it doesn’t give you a break to sort it all out, you just have to keep going.
i will dabble in a little bit of what’s been going on, first and foremost i met a guy, he’s wonderful. second, i’ve been working roughly 40 hour weeks at ‘the arches‘, mtv give our mcdonald’s a reality show and i guarantee watchers will never be bored. drama is all there is, there’s never a day that goes by where someone isn’t enticing an engaged man, yelling, bitching, gossiping, trying to get someone fired, and other such drama. it’s hell. i’ve been taking care of my best friend, lee, while his dad is sick, making sure the kid gets to work considering no one wants to take him, and he has no car or license. i’m his surrogate mother, i love that kid. (:
i’ve also been spending time with my best friend christina and her kids, they are beautiful, sweet and joyful, they make me want to pop out a couple of my own, haha. there’s been a tremendous amount of drama with my friends from work, one quit, one broke off his engagement because he fell in love with a manager who is old enough to be his mother, who has two kids, and an ex-husband she’s still in love with, but won’t admit it. there’s been suspensions, write-ups, a virgin losing her virginity to some guy who was gay and might have aids? still unclear on the details, but i really don’t want to know them anyway.
family wise, there’s always drama there, and with the holidays here it multiplies by a thousand. someone trying to trick a pregnancy on their significant other, seperation anxieties from loved ones, medical problems and such.

(more…)

endless summer;

in this world we live in things can change by the second. this can be a good thing or a bad thing. we all have days that are just plain bad, but we also all have days that are so good you can’t stop thinking about them years down the road. it’s funny how your life can change in just one second, unknowingly you find yourself standing in front of something so unexpected, which can also be good or bad. you meet new people and though a lot of them will be people you wish you hadn’t met, there will surely be a few people who you will grow close to.

sometimes you might even find yourself falling head over heels for someone special, and the times you spend together will make the worst days good when you recall the memories you made. when you find the person that can make you smile in the worst times, keep them close. never take any time with them for granted, thank whatever mysterious force that brought you two together multiple times a day, happiness will soon follow.

wow, this was a really random blog, i wonder what has me thinking so deeply. haha.

let’s get out of the ‘love is all you need‘ portion of the blog, and into site updates. well, the past week or so has been crazy for me sitewise, i think i’ve put up like 3 new site layouts, and 60+ myspace layouts, a bunch of retouched photos and a handful of photoshop actions, and i still have a bunch more stuff i’d like to create and put up. i’m a busy bee, i guess. i’m also trying to balance work, family, friends, vacation planning, and more.  i would love to thank all of my lovely site go-ers, for commenting the last blog, and for applying to be affiliate, etc. it’s making the update process go smoothly.

liven up your day by clicking the big music link to the right, i’ve got some of my favorite songs of the moment on a playlist i would love for you to listen to, i’ve got a bit of everything rap, pop, rock. just give it a try, you might find something you like! (:
