Committed

I watched a 90’s movie called “Committed” last night. I had another very BLEH day, go figure. So it was a movie and hot pockets for me.

Oh, the 90's. And that is her ring finger.

Oh, the 90’s. And that is her ring finger.

Committed is about a woman who is very dedicated to her marriage vows, or, hence the title, committed. So¬†committed, in fact, she follows her husband from NYC to Texas to help him because the vows say “in good times and in bad.” The way she finds him is through some sort of universe voo-doo and kind of loses me here, but she finds him. She soon discovers he is not only improving his photography career but starting a whole new life, which includes dating other women. She is pretty much stalking him at this point. Jolene decides, screw it, he is just in a “spiritual wheelchair” and needs to be stuck by. She becomes friends with everyone in his life, including the mistress who had no idea about Jolene. There is a bunch of sitting outside his trailer, young Benicio Del Toro hitting on her, she does more voo-doo? It’s kind of weird. Then she is, well, committed to a psych ward where she looks deep down and decides it is better to leave the husband, who by the way is played by Luke Wilson, and go back to NYC and start her life over. Casey Affleck is in there too for some comic relief as her brother, he marries the husband’s girlfriend. I give this movie a B-. I do love the straight from the 90’s looks though. Red pleather pants and mid drifts. Ahhhh, the 90’s, when everyone seemed to just not give a crap about what they wore.

Why am I down now you may ask. Well, I am very worried about my financial aid for school. Also, I will make this the summer of major changes if I don’t get to go to school this year. Quitting my job, moving, all sorts of things. I feel like I have been stagnant for 3 years, even though I have done quite a bit of traveling. Stagnant though, stagnant.

I am going on a hike today, the weather isn’t suppose to get bad, but it will be up in the 80’s, which is hot for me so I have to bring lots and lots of water! I am not a hot weather person. I am planning on 14 miles. I want to head out of my apartment to buy food for it in about an hour. Look forward to another hiking post later today.

Also, NBC, if you’re reading which I doubt, I love Hannibal! It is the best new show you’ve come up with in a long time. DO NOT CANCEL THIS SHOW!

I hate emotions!

I am so emotional right now! Crying every hour about my boyfriend, crying about being addicted to bad food, then eating said bad food because I am sad, then going to work and swallowing my feelings and putting on a brave face. Repeat cycle.

I did try filling out my Suffolk financial info again, but now when I go to pick a security picture it kicks me out. I tried calling the help number and got a voice mail. So annoying.

I went to my leasing office. I have 60 days to clean and pack up. I will be working hard on that.

I have decided to go on a couple mind clearing hikes within my next few days off. 6-14 mile ones. I may go several days in a row. Be prepared for many pictures of that.

At work they somehow have cut the Wi-Fi off in the back office, so the employee’s can’t use it. That means I can’t do anything on my computer at work even on extremely slow nights, super sad.

I had to kick out a room the other night for having a party. I gave the room 40 dollars back but forgot to put a note on the room so my manager thought I sold the room for 50 bucks and got mad. Then when I said I gave money back he was all like “WHY??? We don’t give money back on PARTIES?” Honestly, the room was very polite while leaving, which is usually not the case, so I gave a little money back. Usually there is a screaming person going “FUCK YOU! I am going to get a lawyer and you can’t do this and where is your manager and what’s the corporate number!!!! Yell, yell, yell.” Now my manager is mad at me, and AH!!!!!!!

I also left my phone charger at work and the last time that happened it was stolen. I asked my security guard to bring his. I hope mine is still there, I can’t really afford to buy a new one.

Overall, today has sucked and I am ready for tomorrow.

Oh, and I am on my period and the added emotional feelings suck.
