Have You Been Looking for Me?

I know I have!

Facebook status update 11/13/09:
ending a relationship, becoming a little sister, returning to the folks’ house, quitting the only job I’ve held for a substantial length of time, finishing up a decade of ed. and trying to beat a dreadfully sore throat in the past 1.5 months has been...exhausting.

At least I'm no longer sick.

I've been trying so, so hard to adjust to all these changes while finishing out this semester. I'm feeling very unsettled and unlike myself. I'm confused. I don't like admitting this either.

2009 has been a doozy and I'm glad there's finally a light at the end of the tunnel. I've said before I'm not one for resolutions and won't be making any for the new year; I'm making resolutions for the heck of it...just because it's such a topsy turvy time and I ought to get it together! I'm being ridic...

I haven't even tried to unpack since I moved over Thanksgiving break. I barely have room to walk through my bedroom nor can I find numerous articles of clothing. This morning, I had to run out to the garage to find shoes to match my outfit. It's a fright, but take a peek anyway: Wow, now this is embarassing and pathetic! Wonder what the cable guy will think when he stops by tomorrow...Perhaps, he'll think this chick belongs on Hoarders, or something. On the upside, my parents pointed out I will have a man in my room! And, that's totally a joke- doubt the AT&T cable man is going to be my type and Lord knows I won't be his type.

Speaking of men and Facebook statuses, I started a frenzy the other day by changing my status to "in a complicated relationship", which people "liked" and also messaged me to find out who I'm dating these days. Since when is a complicated relationship something to like?

Here's why my relationship is complicated:
I live with my mothers who packs my lunch, I'm near 30 and soon to be unemployed. Being a horrible catch is pretty fucking complicated! Luckily, I have a best friend who watches out for me. It's too bad she's looking out for my best interest on CraigsList.com.

Christmas Season is almost upon us & we all know about those ever popular(?) "Office Parties". You know. The one's where we're basically forced to attend. The ones where you make that ever important impression on your Boss and his wife? Don't underestimate the importance of your presence, as well as your appearance at these functions. If you intend to even be considered for that new position in the up coming year, you NEED to be there. AND you need to arrive with a great date. There's no two ways around it ladies. Well let's say you want to go, BUT not alone! Not this year. No way! Not again.

What will you do? Who will YOU call? That's right! The guy on CNN . . . . . . . . . "RENT-a-GENT" ! ! ! !

Imagine arriving with THIS great-looking guy. Being able to converse all night long on countless topics, in the language YOU'D perfer. Being able to drink as much as you'd like and never having to worry about driving away so PLASTERED only to wake up in a cold, over-lit, uncomfortable jail cell because some Cop decided you were weaving all over #635.

PLEASE contact me! I can assist you ladies. The situation is NOT hopeless! Not THIS year! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . www.YOUR-RENT-a-GENT.com . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Wow, you really are in a period of change. But you seem to have held on to your sense of humor and that's a good sign. You'll sort things out before long!

Your comment on Mel's "old perv" post was great. But I am biased, I was thinking the same thing!!! =)

Steph said...

@RicAdeMus: I'm glad you're on the same page. At least I'm not the only one with my mind in the gutter (or right place-LOL).

Thanks for the encouragement & stopping by :)

Despite everything that's happening in your life, you've still got a great personality, and awesome sense of humor and you're still attractive.

You're still an awesome catch, don't worry about that.

If that guy is making cash with his rent a gent, maybe I should give it a shot. I could discuss Dexter all night long.

Steph said...

@Scott: Thanks for the pep talk :D

Dexter talk lasting all night is what the ladies long for! Give it a go & get moving because I believe people are already RSVPing for holiday parties!

MKL said...

I think we have some similarities, I'm nearly 30, too. Although my room is tidied up, hehe. Do you want me to help you clean up? :P I'm good at that ;)

Tania-Dreams2009 said...

I feel your pain on change. I'm near 30 as well and for some reason this has been the hardest time for me in facing change. So glad 2009 is almost over! You have a great outlook on it all tho ;) LOL on "Rent a gent" :)

ChinkyGirLMeL said...

Hey you! Sounds like all these changes are happening all at once. Things can get pretty overwhelming. Hang in there. Maybe you can start by doing one thing at a time? Like ummm maybe start by cleaning up and arranging your room. hehehehe Wish I could go there to help you unpack and all. =)

Steph said...

@MKL: I've decided unpacking will be a process because I don't care enough to do it. I figure I've gotta wear clothes from these boxes, so I'll unpack as needed.

@Tania: I wonder what this 30 thing is all about because I actually look forward to the age & having a "dirty thirty" celebration LOL

@Mel: One things at a time? That's not very Stephanie-like. Even if you were to help me unpack, we'd end up dancing and fending off weird, old perverts ;)

Nina said...

wow my bedroom looks just like that right now except i'm not going through a move. so much change all at once! my head would explode! good luck girl!

Steph said...

@Nina: Good thing we aren't roomies- we'd really be in trouble!

Thanks for the luck :D
