Taking the bull by the horns...the Mechanical Bull. =P


Source

Ever fell swamped by your procrastinations? It's not necessarily a bad thing, BUT it can drive you a lil nuts. I have such goals on my plate & I really need to get my act together this week. My bosses are actually out of my office this week so that lil pressure will be off of me so I can relax at work. I renewed my gym membership so I will be going M-F this week. I've also decided to take a huge back-burner from the drama that keeps mulling around in my head to straighten myself out. Eventually the train ride is going to hit the end of the rail & you have to step off of it & take a break. Especially when you start looking like a raccoon. Trust me its not a good look for me or anyone.

The New Guy, the teddy bear with a chainsaw I was mentioning is so Done. I walked out of his house last week, well stormed out of his house, because he was doing the typical "Let's be an ass so she doesn't get feelings for me before this gets too serious" crap. YET still wanted me to stay over. I don't get it. He can go play games with himself for all I care. So I'm putting that retarded relationship on the "Do not Call" list. It's okay. I'm fine about it, & I'm not just saying that. His cons became worse & the pros were just not strong enough for me to fight for it. Apparently bad habits die hard with some people too & his demons re-surfaced and I'm sorry I'm not going to be a rebound notch on his belt while he gets kicks from alternative sources. So I stormed out after I put my sneakers on. He hated that I wear sneakers. Oh well. I'm so done with drummers. "There I go, turn the page..."

Well...this Bull shit that has been buzzing around me, has really opened my eyes. I'm looking forward to just working on high priorities this week. Health, finding a new job, saving some much needed cash, spending some quality time with my mom so she feels better, going back to the gym, working on my novel & putting that bounce back in my step that I saw in the mirror when I was dancing on Friday night.

I'm going to take the bull by the horns & keep riding & hope I don't fall off, again. I found out also this weekend that there is a bar by me that ACTUALLY has a Mechanical bull!!! I felt just like Miranda in that Sex & the City episode where she was riding the bull and had the time of her life! hehe. To conclude here are the pictures of me on the Mechanical bull!! If you close your eyes & hold on tight its a real talespin!! The guy was also really gentle with me which I am soooo grateful!!! =)


Me holding on for dear life before it started to move!



Me falling off the Mechanical bull!! But it was worth it!

Cheers to a successful week everyone. Drama-free. *Knock on wood*

Write, and screw him that ass. I am such a procrastinator. Sucks sometimes, but make this a good week.

Hahaha those pics of you on the mechanical bull are PRICELESS! Love them! I'm glad you had fun. My only chance in the past to ride a mechanical bull was at a work Christmas party this past winter. But it got snowed in and they never rescheduled it. I was upset. I liked the idea of not only riding the bull but seeing my coworkers ride it as well. Hehe.

I hope you had a great weekend. xoxo

I understand completely about procrastination. Big paper due in a week and I am...not even beginning it. I need to lock myself inside of the library.
Love the mechanical bull photos!

I'm all for a drama free week! Maybe even a good weekend to come. Spring is in the air after all!

Sheri said...

That is not easy And I have seen toughest ones to fall on ground but yes, it is nice to try if there is no back related problem.

Sadako said...

I've always wanted to too, but I feel like I'd smash myself in two. Doesn't Betty on Ugly Betty do it too?

P said...

Hahaha, love these pics - looks like a lot of fun!

Pop Champagne said...

Yay for knowing that you deserved to be treated well and getting out of a bad relationship!

I like the drama free week and am going to try to do the same. :-)
