Journal Entry #79

Hey friends!

I’m nearing 1,000 followers on here and I was thinking I might do a giveaway? I’m not sure what I would be giving away, I don’t know if I should make it open internationally– or how much that would even cost… and I have no idea how I’d choose my winner. Any suggestions for how to set that up for you guys? I just think it would be so fun to put a little gift box together. 😀

I’ve had a pretty uneventful couple days. I finished watching Finding Carter yesterday. I hate the ending of it so much. I finished reading One Of Us Is Lying the day before. It was an okay read. I was going to replace this journal entry with a My Favorite Quotes From… for that book but I’m trying not to skip any posts on my schedule this month.

I haven’t got my period yet but my body and mood swings are telling me it’s near and my app says 2 more days. I went to work on Monday and Tuesday night. I took tonight off and will probably be going back tomorrow and will work all weekend if mother nature allows me to.

I started reading Sweetbitter last night and this morning. I’m already 20% through. I like it so far. 🙂 I haven’t found a new show to watch yet.

Today, boyfriend and I both had the day off. Boyfriend had only one errand to run earlier, which was to go to the dispensary. Other than that we’ve just been able to relax all day so after dinner, we took a nap. We slept for around 3hrs. We woke up around the same time and I started typing this up when boyfriend went out for his cigarette.

It’s my dad’s birthday today. I can’t remember how old he is but he’s getting super close to 50! He said he’ll drive an ’06 Chrysler Sebring to me but I don’t know if I can afford to pay how much he is asking from me. I still can’t afford to pay my taxes, either. Oh! And on the way home from work last night, we got pulled over by the police. All the officer asked for was boyfriend’s license, told us that he’s not able to see our license plates with our bumper the way it is, he asked us what happened to it, asked us where we were coming from, and then we were quickly released to go. Just another reminder that we need to figure something out asap.

Hope your week has been going well so far!

  1. Couple of suggestions for your giveaway
    Firstly do you have any items from your subscription boxes that you did not open or try out? If so you could put together your own little surprise box, if not you can still put together your own little surprise box just look for little inexpensive knick knacks when you are on your adventures!!
    If you are anything like me you have a lot of international followers also so if you want to open it up to ALL your followers then keep the weight of the items down really low and postage should not be too much.
    One way you can choose a winner, come up with a number in your head, keep that number a secret but time stamp it such as send your self an email with what the number is.
    Announce somewhere in the middle of your giveaway post that you will give something to a lucky person who leaves a comment on your blog…this way you know that only active readers will be participating!!
    Good luck, it sounds like a fun idea!!

    1. Yeah, there are a few items from my subscription boxes that I haven’t used and will include in my giveaway! I do have a few international followers (including you!), that’s why I wanna try to make it open to everyone but I’m scared of the price it will cost to ship!

      Thanks so much for your suggestions!! ❤

      1. You can go to the USPS website and put in the weight and a country and it will give you how much per pound, Australia is one of the furthest away so use that as an example and give yourself an idea 🙂 hope this helps

  2. LOL – I knew it wasn’t just me who forgets my parents age🤦🏽‍♀️ it’s like “bro you aren’t 50 yet but you’ve definitely gone past 40”. CONGRATS ON ALMOST 1,000 BABYGIRL YOU DESERVE IT!🎉🎉🎉 in terms of a giveaway, I think it depends what you’re giving away and what postage services you have available. If you’re going light, international might not cost too much – but if you’ve got bulkier goods it can get expensive real quick😭 when you’re setting up, you can use rafflecopter to make it really simple (they pick a randomised winner and you allocate actions for people to do to win entries) x

    1. Gosh, I can’t remember at all how old they are but at least I know what years they were born in so I can do the math if I really needed to LOL.
      Thank you so much, Mia!! 😀 ❤ I'll have to check rafflecopter out!

  3. That sounds like a good idea about the giveaway, I may have to steal it!
    Come to Texas and get this car! 😀
    Happy birthday to your dad. He’s probably at least 50 unless they had you when they were young.

    1. I saw you said you’d give away your Loot Crate stuff, good idea!! 😀 Did you end up getting the title for that car from the lady?? Does it work fine? That would be fun to come visit you and then drive home. How much would you be asking for it? You can e-mail if you want. I think you have my old phone number.

      Oh and my dad was born in ’71! They did have me when they were quite young. My mom was only 19 when she had my older sister who is only 2 years old than me.

      1. Oh wow, then I am your parents age, LOL! I was born in ‘73.
        Of course she didn’t send it. My mom is going to apply for a lost title. I will email you with how much she wants for it. I believe she said $1000. There isn’t anything mechanical wrong with it.
        I have a bunch of Loot crate stuff that I don’t want and my son doesn’t want so why not!

        1. Yeah! My mom was born in ’73. 😀
          Lol no worries!! I think my dad will be driving that Chrysler here for us & that’d be easier for us, I think. Thank you for the offer though!!! ❤
          It'll be an awesome giveaway!! You'll reach 1,000 in no time. 😀

  4. My weeks been great! Sucks you got pulled over:(. I’d sign up for a giveaway! Sounds like a fun idea! Not sure how you’d go about it tho 🤔🤔 maybe get people to follow you on a specific social media and show love?? I thought about doing something similar but not until way down the line. My dad is gonna turn 47 in June. I poke fun at him being old on a regular basis 😂😂😂

    1. So good to hear that your week’s been going great!! ❤ Yeah it was just annoying because after work I just want to get home & he pulled us over to tell us something we already knew lol.
      Yeah… I just want people to be following me here to be eligible for the giveaway but there's no way of checking if someone is following you or not on here, is there?
      I think that's how old my dad is… 47 or 48? LOL. I poke fun at him for getting old too but even I'm getting sad about it now, I don't want him to get older. 😦

  5. Ahhh HUGE congrats beauty! So excited for you! I hate the anticipation of when you know you are getting Aunt Flo but STILL don’t have her yet. I hope you feel better and have a great rest of your week! ❤

    1. Thank you so much 😀 gosh… I think the anticipation aka PMS is much more worse than the actual period itself. Hope you have a great rest of your week, too, love!! ❤
