.:A Little About Myself:.

♥ I'd like to think of myself as a very simple type of person, I only need my family and friends and that is about it. The other things life has to offer, such as the material, are nice, but are not the essence of life. As much as I am simple, I am complex. I look at the world with awe and with the desire to learn as much as I can about others and about life. Life has many things to offer us, and it gives us very little time to understand it. So it is with that viewpoint that I try to approach everything that I do. I try to accept what life sends my way, and I try to take a lesson from everything that I have experienced. I believe that every interaction that we have with others is for a reason, and every person we have met will have some sort of impact on our lives. It is our responsibility as humans to learn from each other. As you can see, maybe I read too much into things, or maybe I don't. Regardless, that's me...simple huh?.....*Peace*

What Time Is It?

Just One of Those Days....

I'm in one of those blah moods =(. I 'm sitting here at work. The phones are going crazy call after call. I'm hungry & my head hurts. Oh & did I mention i didn't bring anything to eat, so I have to wait until iI get home at 5 to eat. I really want to go back home & go back to bed & re-do the whole Morning again! Anyway my birthday is in 4 days. I'll be turning 22 to some that's not old but to me it is. I'm really not even excited about it, sad I know. I wish I was little again when things were so much easier. I'm leaving everything up to GOD. I just wish my life would tell me where it's taking me, but I know it's not going to. I guess I just got to sit & take it as it comes. Oh yeah my cousin is moving! I'm sad because I barely see her now as it is. She's only moving to Huntsville, but i'm still sad. I hope things will get better. =) I'm trying very hard to be optimistic. Well that's it for now.

4. Put Your Garbage Can On Your Desk And Label It "In."

5. Put Decaf In The Coffee Maker For 3 Weeks Once Everyone has Gotten Over Their Caffeine Addictions, Switch to Espresso.

6. In The Memo Field Of All Your Checks, Write " For Smuggling Diamonds"

7. Finish All Your sentences with "In Accordance With The Prophecy."

8 . Don't use any punctuation

9. As Often As Possible, Skip Rather Than Walk.

10. Order a Diet Water whenever you go out to eat, with a serious face.

11. Specify That Your Drive-through Order Is "To Go."

12. Sing Along At The Opera.

13. Go To A Poetry Recital And Ask Why The Poems Don't Rhyme?

15. Five Days In Advance, Tell Your Friends You Can't Attend Their Party Because You're Not In The Mood.

16. Have Your Co-workers Address You By Your Wrestling Name, Rock Bottom.

17. When The Money Comes Out The ATM, Scream "I Won!, I Won!"

18. When Leaving The Zoo, Start Running Towards The Parking lot, Yelling"Run For Your Lives, They're Loose!!"

19. Tell Your Children Over Dinner. "Due To The Economy, We Are Going To Have To Let One Of You Go."

My Friend....I Miss Her!

Today is an okay day. I'm sitting here at work. I'm kind of sad =(. I'm hurting for one of my friends. She's in a situation where I'm helpless & I can't do anything. It's beyond my control, & it bothers me. I wish I could be there to hug her, to tell her everything will be okay, but most of all that I LOVE HER. We grew up together she's like my sister. I miss her so much. I just hurt so bad for her. Please just pray for her. That's all I ask. Thanks. Bye

Fresh New Start....

Okay so I'm trying out this blogging thing. It seems like everyone I know is doing it, so I decided to join the fun =). I'm really not that interesting. I really don't know what I'm going to talk about on here, but i'm sure it will come to me. Well the name of the blog does say "The Life of Christy" so I guess I need to talk about what goes on in my life. So here goes I'm from the big town of Madisonville. I'm the Administrative Assistant at Monterey Mushrooms Inc. My family & friends have my heart. I have the best parent's ever. I have 3 brothers (Jesus, Jose & Ivan). There is never a dull moment when I'm around them. Needless to say since I was raised with 3 boys I know how to defend myself =). I have four nieces. MaryHelen (10), Ana LeighAnne (1 month), Brianna Leigh (5), and Alyssa Joi (3), & one nephew Damian Jesus (10 months). I have 3 great sister-in-laws (Sonja, Hilary & Hilaria). I don't know how they put up with my crazy brothers. It takes a special woman for that LOL. Oh & I can't leave out my cousin Jessica she is like the sister I never had I love her to death. She just recently had a baby girl named Sofia. She's a cutie. I have a few close friends, they are the best. They are always there when I need someone to talk to. Well how is that for my first blog? I'll put up pictures later so you can put a face to the people i'm talking about on here. Leave me comments. Thanks for coming by!!!!(oh yeah for the people that don't know me that's me in the picture =))
