The Fight for My Best Friend

The Fight for My Best Friend
Above is the link for Hershey’s go fund me. I’ve updated it since last week as of today. My best friend went to heaven on the 9th.

The update :
On Thursday, April 9 2015 Hershey went to heaven. As we were on our way to pick my baby up, the surgeon called saying she was having some trouble 30 minutes prior to us being on the way. Once there, she was wheeled on a gurney with IV fluids running and she had trouble breathing. Emotions flooded and I started to cry. She was very much in pain and struggling. They gave us an option to try to give her a blood transfusion over night and give her oxygen. We didn’t know how we were going to pay for it as the bill preview was about $2000 but we decided we were going to fight one more day. When we told the assistants our decision, they were starting her oxygen and working with her in the back. Fight till the end or fight till tomorrow was how we thought at the moment. I wanted Hershey to know her family will fight for her until the end. An hour passed and the vets told us that she was crashing and not responding to anything. At that time I knew something worse was going to happen. They said they were going to keep her alive as long as possible to get anyone who wanted to see her there ASAP. The final decision was to let her “sleep” and wake up in heaven. We were there kissing and hugging her as she left us for her “real home” in heaven. It’s been hard for the past 2 weeks and the house has been empty and so has the back seat of my truck. That day, I felt like I failed my best friend. Our family was seeing shadows of her, hearing her bark at 3am and I even thought she was breathing next to me one morning as she has a very distinct breathing pattern when sleeping. It’s taken us a little to accept that Hershey is no longer in pain and is better now and eating whatever she wants.

Yesterday, I picked up her urn and paw print impression. The clay had some of her hair in it. I almost broke down. As soon as I got home, I baked her impression and put up her urn on the shelf we purchased Saturday night. When I was buying that, I never thought I would have ever had to. However, although I know she is actually in heaven, at least her ashes are home with us.

This morning: Her surgeon woke me up to tell me the results came back and it definitely was Hemangiosarcoma. The mass was so big it’s probably been there for a while. The biopsy of her liver showed hepatitis as well. Animal instinct is to hide illness as a survival tactic. My baby survived through so much and we didn’t even know until the end. She fought for her life to be with us as did we. We fought a good fight. Hershey lived a long, healthy and loving life. I will never get over it but I will heal eventually. If you have any pets, make sure they have a good life with you. They are your family and best friends. Hershey will be in my heart until even after I die. We grew up together and we still will. We’re just in 2 different places until we reunite and my life on earth or up will finally be complete.

I will keep this campaign up as I still am not sure how I am going to pay for the remaining bills. The amount I owe may seem small and petty to others but I am in a different stance in this part of my life. If anyone wants to contribute still to Hershey’s bill fund, it is extremely appreciated.

Hershey the Beagle/My Other Half is Sick. Gofundme.com/helpsavehershey

Hello everyone! I probably won’t be posting up anything related to my usual beauty categories due to a certain struggle going on…

My dog Hershey has been with my family since I was 11 years old. She was 8 months when we got her. I’m 24 now so we’ve had her for quite some time. At the moment she is in a hospital. She’s post-op spleenectomy as of yesterday due to an extremely large mass. When they said it might be Hemangiosarcoma (a very aggressive and rapid cancer), I broke down hard. Hershey hasn’t been herself for about 2 weeks. She loves food and hasn’t even cared for treats waved in her face. This week has been the hardest for my family.

I’ve never thought I would have to but I have started a Gofundme campaign for her. I didn’t realize how vet bills were so different from humans. Everything is upfront unlike our bill later stuff. We had to drop $5,000 Monday night (4/6/2015). The whole story from beginning to end is on there. I’ll be updating throughout this tough journey as well.

Help Save Hershey

I wrote the description at 2am this morning and got no sleep. It killed me yesterday when I put the key to my front door and didn’t see her through the glass. It’s honestly hard to be without her…

For those who don’t feel like clicking the link but don’t mind a long, detailed read, I’ll put it below.

COPY & PASTED FROM HESHEY’S GOFUNDME:

Pictured is Hershey, my tri-colored beagle. When I was 11, my family found her on a site called Pet Finder. She was located at the VBSPCA. She was 8 months old at the time. We were told that another family wanted her but if anything changed, they’d notify us. We didn’t hear back so my parents called but no one picked up the phone. My dad decided we were just going to go see what was up because I really wanted her. We then found out that the other family didn’t even bother with her so she was ours. That was the day I knew she was meant for my family. I’m 24 now so she’s been a family member for bout 13 years.

A little about Hershey:
-She loves food. I mean LOVES it! We’ve had so many mishaps of her and food, I can’t even count! She’s gotten herself stuck in the lid of trashcan before so every day, we MUST put something heavy over the trash lid so she can’t dumpster dive. You can’t eat specifically a Mcchicken around her or she’ll try to ninja her way in.
-Her favorite outing is anywhere aslong as she can stick her head out for a smell buffet, she’s a happy girl.
-Hershey absolutely HATES fighting. She LOVES peace. If she ever hears raised voices or any form of anger, she will run away. She’ll find the nearest open door and hide until it’s quiet again.

What’s happening as of recent :
For a few days, we’ve notices she’s been lethargic. She’s been lazier than usual and just not herself. Each day got worse. She didn’t care for food. That’s when it really hit that something was wrong… She even refused treats (beggin strips are her fav) and that never happens. She just slept a lot and it would take forever to try to coerce her to get up and come outside to use the bathroom. My baby just seemed so sad…

This week:
My sibling and I took her to the vet this Monday (4/6/2015). They took an X-ray of her abdomen and got some labs. They saw a mass in her spleen, her white blood cell count was very high and she was very anemic. The vet cautioned us and wrote a referral for an emergency hospital to get her checked out further. Our vet bill was $408. My bro covered the 300 and I had to charge $108 on my credit card due to being very broke and working only 3 days a week. My bro had to go to work and I ended up taking Hershey to the ER myself.

At the ER:
After being put in a room, she was taken to recheck her glucose because they said it was low in the labs. I waited a very long time for the girl to tell me it was fine and they were gonna keep her in the treatment area till the Dr saw her. I was about to have an anxiety attack while waiting. Then the girl came back in and asked if I wanted them to start the ultra sound and chest x-ray or wait for the Dr. The bill already showed $115 for the visit and $400 something for the ultrasound. I said I wanted to wait. I didn’t know how much it would all cost so I frantically called my bro seeing if he can somehow get out of work to help with decisions because of how broke I am and they don’t “bill later” like human hospitals. The vet finally came to tell me she thinks it might be Hemangiosarcoma which is a rapid and deadly cancer with a prognosis of 3-6 months post op. I broke down infront of the vet and couldn’t help it. My brother called back and said tell them to do what they gotta do and he’ll try to get off work. Crying, I waited and waited then he finally said he was allowed to leave and come to the hospital. Him, my mom and my bf finally came and they told us that the next step would be taking out her spleen for the mass cytology as well as a liver biopsy. We were all crying at the thought of everything including the cost. I have a care credit card that was already almost maxed due to emergency dental work and as much as I didn’t think of my payment aftermath, I asked if they could try to get an increase for me. I got embarrassed at the counter when I got asked how much my income was as of right now. Surprisingly I got a small increase. They told us the base price of her surgery would be $5000. We had to put a $4500 deposit down because she was staying over night. I could only put $3 something down and maxed my card and my brother paid the remaining $1400. It took me forever to sign the papers because I was crying so much. I didn’t know how much my monthly payment would be as I’m already struggling paycheck to paycheck. The lady came to get her and Hershey acted like she didn’t want to go but we got her to get up finally. I was there from 4pm-9pm.

This morning:
We went to see her before her surgery (about noon, surgery was supposed to be 1 or 2pm). She seemed so tired and didn’t move much. She laid on her side on the floor and shook on inhale. I tried not to cry. As I sat next to her, it broke my heart that I wanted to pull her close but couldn’t because Hershey has IV ports bandaged to her front left leg. We called the assistant to get her so we didn’t hold them up for surgery prep. I got a call from the surgeon around 5pm (4/7/2015) saying her surgery went well but the mass was very large with nodules and didn’t look like the normal Hemangiosarcoma tumors they normally see so we have to wait for the results. Apparently, her liver was also diseased looking so we’d be waiting for the results for that too. She said she’d call me in the morning for an update. It’s 2:24 am as I’m writing this dreading that call in a few hours. I have no idea what will happen from here on out, how much more money will need to be spent, or how I’m going to pay my carecredit back. We’re doing all we can because Hershey is our family. She’s not just something to play with or for entertainment. She’s there when we come home and she’s there to comfort and listen. She is the best napping and eating buddy there is in our lives. Anything at all will help. I mean, ANYTHING. I just really hope it’s not terminal. I’ve always said I’d go before she does. I wish she could talk and told me something was wrong and if she’s ever in pain. I love Hershey that much and I’ll do what I can to help her. Even if it’s just kind words of comfort, it’s appreciated.

Yup, that’s what’s going on.
If any of you are animal /dog lovers, you’ll know how my family feels and how hard this is.

Anyway, sorry to sadden your reader feed but thought I’d share<3

I know I said I’d fully fill y’all in but…

… I lied. There is so much stuff that’s happened since the summer until now so for this post, it’ll be the tidbits leading to Christmas and beyond. Whatever had happened previously, I’ll have separate posts for each “event” which will most likely be mentioned with “(separate future post)” to the side.

For now, here are a few things from the past few weeks including my Christmas:
image

There was this old, old, weird wreath we had that had cat cutouts and broken Christmas bulbs so I took all the shrubbery off and yes, I ripped the poorly glued cats off and recycled it into this using a few things!

Christmas eve/Christmas Day

My family tradition is to go to church Christmas eve and then open presents midnight. Our Christmas day is either for parties or gaining 80+ lbs watching reruns of The Christmas Story. Here are a few highlights:

The above collage sums up some of our presents from fam and from my boyfriend and I to each other.
Purse
I freaked when I opened my mom’s gift for me which is that beautiful Michael Kors bag (future separate post). Thank you ma!
Jammer pants
My 2nd oldest brother always gives me funny gifts so he gave me pajamas with sushi and miso soup bowls and it says “MISO CRAZY” all over it haha.
ICON AIRMADA COLOSSAL HELMET
YES! I actually got a 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300 the first week of October (separate future post) and this is the helmet I’ve been wanting since I got the bike. Thanks babe! He always gives me the coolest stuff ^^
Patrick’s presents
-Triumph flag: Patrick recently got a Triumph Daytona 675 after his Yamaha r6 got ran over (separate future post)… Yes I’m serious when I say got ran over. He has a yamaha flag up in his garage and since he got the new Triumph, I got him a flag for the garage.
-Ar15 tee: if you’ve followed my posts over the past few years, yes, we’re pro gun people. I thought it’d be nice for him to have an industry related tee to wear to work.
-Beer thangs: I made him a basket with a growler that says “hopped up like a kid on candy” and 6 different types of beer. He loves IPAs so I scrounged for some at World Market.

My 2nd oldest bro got me this as an “early open” present aaaand it’s definitely going on my desk at work.
That box contains 75 little baglets of Jelly Belly. Who doesn’t love Jelly Belly?! If you don’t, you suck -. –

Christmas day

It was my nephew’s first Christmas so he couldn’t come over to open presents at midnight. They came around noon and we opened our presents then.
Motorcycle angel bells
My brother and his wife gifted my boyfriend and I with angel bells for our motorcycles. For those of you who don’t know about them, look it up and you’ll see why it was one of the best Christmas presents for us riders especially coming from another rider aka my oldest brother.

image

… Us being weird after present opening

image

image

Our Christmas was SUPER awkward….
I say that because I live in the 757 of Virginia. As we all know, Hampton Roads is known for bi-polar weather. It was 70 degrees on Christmas day. Who knew it would be moto weather? Above is my ninjette upfront and my boyfriend’s 675 behind. We rode around the neighborhood for an hour and I didn’t drop woohooooo! I’m fairly new to riding although almost everyone in my fam including cousins ride. Since I got my bike in October, I haven’t gotten to practice much due to weather and being busy. I mean weather because October and November here was pretty frigid (so damn backwards for Christmas -. -) and my riding gear is pretty much a spring and summer set up.

… I didn’t mention I dropped a bike the first time I went riding did I? Nope! Future post! Lmao

image


After Christmas

As the world knows, the boyfriend and I are gamers. We started playing Project Zomboid which is super 90’s graphics but super realistic survival wise. Pictured above was Saturday the 27th. I had a bad dream so he made me feel better with Old Bay fries and tenders. What boyfriend cooks you gaming food?! My awesome boyfriend does!

image

Dead Rising 3 was a Steam sale the other day so we got that and have been playing. Almost all reviews mention the bugginess and pictured above is one of them on his computer.

I’ll be reviewing a few games (fps/mmo) in the near future as well.

Welp, that sums it up some. I apologize for this mess but I had to! I hope everyone’s holidays have been filled with being around loved ones and fun! Thanks for reading!

… Psst next post: thrifting after Christmas. I wanted to keep my fashion stuff separate!

ImageOh yeah…we’re meant to be<3

So uh..Spam Musubi anyone?

Image

Yeah..uh yeahhhhh I definitely went MIA after saying “awww sheeet I’m back and I’m not whack and I will make heRRa posts!”…yeah guys I’m uh..I’m sorry -_- A lot as usual has happened between then. Well since I haven’t organized any pics or transferred them to the comp, you get this for now!

Dun Dun Dun DUUUUNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!! BEHOLD, SPAM MUSUBI!!!

Image

For some of you that have no idea why I’m frantic about what’s up above, Spam Musubi is technically Nori seaweed, rice, and Spam marinated in teriyaki (a soy sauce and sugar sauce/marinade).

You can either just marinade the Spam and fry it, or you can also drizzle it over after cooking as well.

I was ecstatic as hell the night I stumbled upon this glorious glory.

The boyfriend and I went to Food Lion to pick up some ingredients for dinner and tada!!! Found this loveliness waiting on a shelf for me! I love, I mean fucking love Spam. I’m filipino so it works out. The moment I found this, I seriously squealed. I’m not sure if this is “new” or not, but it was sure as hell new to me since I haven’t seen it before.

I’ve made spam musubi in the past (whiiich I’ve lost my musubi mold so yeah guys, you CAN use the CAN if you CAREFULLY get rid of the bottom of it without fucking your fingers up)  and seeing this just made my night knowing I wouldn’t have to make teriyaki and just…do it. I forgot about the pricing…I think at the moment it was an MVP sale for 2/$5 which to me was worth it.

Sooo just letting you guys know, this shit DOES exist 🙂

Image

Yeah yeah yeah, hella grease, I know. I tried my best but the paper towels were running out lol.

I ended up cooking it up for breakfast instead of musubi style for 2 reasons:

1:I didn’t have nori
2:it’s seriously part of a Filipino breakfast if ya’ll didn’t know that

(On the left is the teriyaki spam, on the right is just regular luncheon meat)

Image

and our breakfast was awesome. Nuff said.

Yup, can’t do without the rice. Sorry carb hating “I’ll have air for breakfast” haters.

See that sauce up there? That’s Pappy’s Not Made In China bbq sauce. That shit is AMAZING with perfect zing. We got it from a place over here in Virginia Beach, Va called “The Sauce Shoppe”. They have like an infinite amount of every sauce possible, however mainly hot sauces (including ones you must be of age to purchase) and barbecue sauces. We haven’t ran out of it yet due to the fact that when we came back to get more, they told us they weren’t carrying it and to talk to the shop owner =/

Anyway, sorry for all the chit chat! Just thought some foodies might want some incite 🙂

Foreal, I will be posting more shit. Tonight just happened to be the night I was free lol

Remember, my postings most likely won’t be on a correct timeline so whatever pops up will happen!

Thanks for reading as usual my loves! ❤

Wooahhhh 2014!

Yup, that’s Balut. That’s what I ate on New Years and yes I sobered up before eating it. For those against it, keep it to yourself kthx 🙂

Hello fellow bloggers! Yes, I haven’t been on WP since July 2013. Geebuz, it’s been that long? I’m surprised to still be getting notifications! I want to thank all of the readers that has scanned my posts over the time I’ve been away! A lot has gone on in the past few months…aka life lol. You all know how that goes, right? Right.

I haven’t even been thrifting lately or doing my nails =/ I don’t know what’s happened! However, I know I’m going to kick it in high gear soon and get back to “me”. It’s always good when you get back to “you”. Don’t lose yourself like I have!

I do however have certain pics and what not from my previous adventures and will be posting em’ when I get the chance. I’m pretty sure they may not be in any specific order, so hope ya’ll don’t mind =/

I’m looking forward for more hauls, more posts, and maybe a few new other things along the way. Are ya’ll ready for this year? I am!!

Always Gone With Le Wind (PIC UPDATE!)

ImageSeriously, how long has it been since my last post?!

Geebuz, life sure does happen doesn’t it? I’ve been so busy, I haven’t had any time to post anything! However, I never forgot to take random pics throughout the month specifically FOR posting 🙂

This will be just a photo update without all of the long explanations piece by piece! (Okay I lied. There will be some descriptions lol)  This is just a PARTIAL update, only because this was a draft for another 2 weeks lol.

I’ve also been going to the gym (Planet Fitness) every other day…well unless I’ve done something strenuous already, then that constitutes me not going. Call me a slacker, idgaf. I’ve been on my journey for a month and a half so far. I’ll get there eventually. I’m not quitting just because it’s going slow. Call me a fatass once I’ve stopped.

The top (Head) And shorts (Jockey) came from TJ Maxx in that above picture with the cart. I usually wear Nikes or Reeboks  to work out but you see those purple and grey kicks? They were $14 at Walmart (Danskin) and have been working just fine. For you sneaker heads who are probably like “OMFG EW WALMART SHOES”…..BITCH PLEASE STFU. You act like all of the things you own are SOOOO different. Little do people know but some places (Factories/Manufacturers) actually make all the same shit and just mark em with different labels so I don’t wanna hear/read it. *Takes a deep breath* kay I’m good.2013-05-08_13-43-27_28That right there, is me at work . I was on my way to make something with One Wrap…did I want to take a whole bunch of shit with me and possibly drop everything between my pudgy fingers? Nope. This is how I deal with some thangs. One Wrap weave stuck on me FTMFW!

So that’s it for now people! I’ve had a little more time for thrifting recently so I’ll post up soon. I’ve taken another part time job so I haven’t had much time for shit. I now have the new Galaxy Tab 2 7″ so maybe I’ll be able to post faster without having to get on the comp and do all kindsa thangs that’ll just sidetrack me (Gaming, Steam, TeamSpeak, FB, you know, everything)

For all of you who haven’t unfollowed me (or just haven’t gave a damn) Thank you!

Happy blogging in le blogosphere!

LOL I thought this was the funniest thing. May be it’s wrong to laugh at it but I couldn’t help it. Thriftin’ weeeeavess.

2013-04-01_18-27-38_771Boyfriend got this for $5 at DAV and a couple of others that I don’t have pictured. I got a The Limited dress from DAV as well but I’ll have to hem it a little and I’ll post it up later (you know..if I ever have the time)

We went to TGI Fridays that night. See that flat head? I LOVE short and fat things…I took that from my boyfriend and have been keeping it in my purse…I now take pics of it everywhere I go. He knows I “tool napped” it because we were driving and I pulled it out and he was like OMG I KNEW IT!

That’s a “Grey Goose Chiller” and it was frickin’ fantastic.

foursquare_photo_tmpZomg Food Coma FTW. If any of you haven’t tried the Jack Daniel’s sampler from TGI THEN GO GO GO.

Bf has been pouting all week how we didn’t order the pot stickers -.- Anyone know if they’re good from TGI? LMK!

I thought this was appropriate to take a picture of when everyone was “Praising” and singing. I coughed and my mom  sent these to me through other people passing it on and the one I opened happened to say this during the “PRAISE THE LORD” moments lol

2013-03-31_09-43-13_260Sadly, I don’t have my dress pictured because it got deleted but these were the wedges I wore. I call them my Alice In Wonderland wedges lol. Ain’t nothin’ fancy, just PayLess.

After church, we ended up searching through Big Lots and Dollar Tree for more cheapsy finds  and ate Mongolian BBQ for lunch. Then ended the night with going to Cinema Cafe to watch Hansel and Gretel (which was FREAKIN’ AWESOME)

So Far This Week

Whoever told you that Tetris doesn’t do anything for the real world IS A LIAR. I use Tetris Tactics each and every day!

I really hope to be posting more but it really depends on my time. I’m sure you all know how that goes. As always I thank all of my followers 🙂

I’m hoping for a good weekend this weekend and if so, I’ll be posting some stuff up. I hope to be posting some possible DIY and Nail tutorials in the near future when I have the time 🙂 Vids too!

For now, I’ll end this post with the nail design I JUST did while loading all of this stuffs up and letting them dry 🙂

All $1 each. No it’s not high end but it works. Needed some blues so picked these up after work.

Where the hell has Confection1nfection been? Part 2

ImageSo the ending of my birthmas fandom, this is just going to be a post related to whatever random things I’ve been up to.

This is a ring holder my sister inlaw got. At their house, they have an elephant next to their sink to put their rings when washing dishes. Each time I came over there I got super excited and even thought about jacking it a couple of times (yeah right from my own bro’s house? that’s just wrong! Well, we’ll say BORROWING lol). My sis inlaw heard me squeal over that shit multiple times and BAM I got one! 

ImageThese cute ass mugs have been in my mom’s Altima’s trunk for about a month or two. I got these for 75cents each while on a Salvo’s Wednesday trip. Shit it’s Wednesday right now and if I wasn’t sick as fuck and looking like I cried for years on end while my muscles were all achy breaky then I’d be thrifting atm -_- I’ve already missed a couple of days at work. I’ve been sleeping all damn week and I woke up earlier choking and now I can’t go back to sleep so hell, why not finish this big ass update on me eh? Anyway, back to these cute ass mugs! So the main reason why I got them is because of the ridged indents on the side for le fingers and of course, the beautiful jade-esque color. A lot of people I know get disgusted by knowing their drinking out of a glass or eating off of a plate that came from someone else’s possession…well shit. Did you sanitize a plate before eating at someone else’s house or go out to eat with your friends while your drunk ass is downing shots of patron that had slut lips nuzzled against the same rim that you’re licking whatever salt left over there is? I think not.  Main rule for thrifting: CLEAN YO SHIT. Image

About a weekish ago, my brother asked me to go apartment hunting with him and of course, I always say yes. Yes, I go for the ride. Who the hell wouldn’t? We ended up in Newport News, Va and came across this gas station/food mart. Again, ya’ll know I LOVE gas station food. The sign made me O_O foreal and I just had to try the gizzards out. ImageSee that crispy, greasy, fatty goodness? $5 for a large drink and those gizzards. Automatically came with Texas Pete (ooohweeee my fav) and yes, the sign told the truth, it is THE SHIT. Gross, gross cuticles…don’t mind them -_- Washing dishes with no gloves will do it.

While in that part of Hampton Roads, near Buckroe Beach there was a “Dollar Bargain” store. As cheap as us siblings can be, we were like HEEYAL YEAH LEZGO! Doodadooo *walking walking* Yeah man, the inside was no normal dollar tree. They had an array of random things and remember, Random=Awesome. Those nail polishes were $1 each. Unlike some people I know IRL and online, I honestly don’t give a fuck if my polish is “upscale” or “high end” or “fancy as shit with long lasting power”. If you truly “LOVE” nail varnishes, you’d know you don’t just stick to ONE EXPENSIVE ASS KIND. Honest truth? I love trying all brands. It doesn’t have to have “long lasting” in the description because I change my nails up more than once a week for the most part.If I do plan on keeping the same stuff on, I’ll just pair it up with a good top coat. It’s common sense really. I ain’t gotta be FANCY all of the time.I mean, of course the way it comes out of the bottle and onto the brush and onto the nails is important but then again, it’s nothing a little bit of thinner can’t cure. I mean shit, it was a dollar, why complain? Most of the time, you seriously get what you pay for. However these “I.C.E” (Not Pure Ice) polishes weren’t half bad for a buck.

These are some things I did to try em out:ImageImage

Don’t mind my ugly ass toes please.

Image

As I’ve stated before, I LOVE alligator clips! This particular one happened to be from that shop from Buckroe and of course, it was a buck. I know it’s going to break in like a month but I’ll love it while it lasts lol.

Image

And just to throw this in, a few hours after I did that pastellish design uptop, I swapped to this messy tentacle design in which the next morning, I swapped colors and design once again lol…don’t judge me!

Image

Sooo apart from all those random things I’ve posted about my time apart from blogging, I’ve also started working at a Tactical Shop. During my lunch, I was eating that lovely portable children’s yogurt and I’m not stating the name for certain purposes buuut uh..yeah….It’s not always the best to give us humans the option to be “creative” because people like me will end up filling in the blanks with shit like that…JUST SAYING. 

Anyway so the ending of this post is, I’ve been sick as fuck for this past week. I had to type this particular post up in parts with hitting the save button multiple times because I kept falling asleep after I said I couldn’t fall back asleep. Well shit, I’m awake once again and can’t breath through mah face so here I am, finishing this up. Hopefully I’ll get time and more topics to dish out onto this but for now, ya’ll are just gonna have to deal with this! 

Thank you guys for your patience and support! ❤ Confection1nfection
