Daily Prompt: Sandwich

via Daily Prompt: Sandwich

I love sandwiches. They might childish and old school, but you know what? They pack a punch when you create them correctly. There’s places like Subway, Jimmy John’s and Quiznos. They make some good ones, but in my opinion, I make the best. By I, I mean homemade. Not to be misunderstood that I’m an undercover “chef of the sandwiches”.ย There’s nothing better than having homemade meals.. Yes, even if that homemade meal is a sandwich. As the picture would indicate, sandwiches are not just PB&J and Turkey with Cheese. It can be a real burger. A veggie burger. Or depending on who you are, two pieces of bread with some mayo in the middle is a sandwich. However you like it, just enjoy it that way. My particular favorite is Turkey with Colby Jack cheese. Forget about it. It takes the cake every time and with mustard on it too. Ugh. Don’t get me started. There’s a since of innocent, wonderful memories that come with eating a sandwich. Think about it.. Your mom used to make you sandwiches when you were growing up. As you got older, you start to experiment which ones you like the best. That wonder of “is this one going to be better than the last?” or “will this fuck my stomach up?”.. I mean you never know depending on what you put on it. I have to say they’re the easiest thing to make, but you can mess them up if you don’t put things together that will actually be GOOD TOGETHER. Well, that’s all I have on this topic. Have a great day everyone!

Daily Prompt: Recharge

via Daily Prompt: Recharge

 

I see this word and immediate think about rest. Ugh, how it would feel to be, you know, the stereotypical woman that doesn’t have to work in the morning. Just wake up make breakfast and not worry about anything all day. What are they called again? Oh yeah, stay at home wives/girlfriends. I would love to have that reality. In all honesty, though, I did. I quit my job of over a year with aย semi-great company. I decided I wanted to pursue school instead. Then, money needed to be had in order to continue my education. Needless to say I needed to work again. So, I did. I lasted a month there I believe. It was probably the best decision to quit mentally, but not financially. My boyfriend and I made it work, though. As we always do. I had been out of work for about 6 weeks. That is, until I started the job I’m at now. In that time of “unemployment” I had lots and lots of time to rest. To Recharge, if you will. I got my head clear and followed a path to help me find a career based job and that’s exactly what I did. I went on the interview in July and heard back from them in August with the offer. I was beyond happy. I start that job toward the end of this month. I hate to say it, but during my time of ‘Recharging’ I was bored. I was able to find myself. Since I had been lost in line of employment since the age of 18. If I hadn’t done that, then I wouldn’t be where I am today.

 

Moral of my story? You need time to rest, relax and recharge to make yourself a better you. I’m sure glad I did.

My thoughts on Orlando,Fl

Hello Quinnies! So, it’s been a while I know. I have had so much going on it’s I N S A N E. We had love button’s little brothers graduation on the 3rd, my aunts’ birthday party last weekend and this week my best friend’s wedding is happening!! I’m the maid of honor ! Just throwing it out there ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve also been slacking a little bit because I’ve been feeling kinda down about myself lately. I hate my job, I’ve got multiple jobs, I seem to not be able to do anything right and it’s very frustrating to get out of bed in the morning just to head to a day of disappointment in myself. The job I hate (my full time job) has not gotten any better at all. They pull like 160 out of my checks every month for coverage I’m only going to use barely a handful of times throughout the year, my love button is fighting something from the past (throws it back in my face from time to time) and he and I are trying to get pregnant and we haven’t accomplished that yet. I feel like it may be PCOS on my side, of course. But, I’m feeling pretty upset about that too.

My co-worker keeps asking me about my blog, SO I figured I’d better update it. So, nothing too interesting outside of the listed above has happened.

I would like to talk a little bit about this Orlando, Fl business (literally just a little). What. The. Hell. Is. Going. On? So, they released that the woman who was married to the man who committed the club murders knew he was going to do it. Now this could just be me (and yes I do know that since they were married, legally she did not have to tell the police anything due to confidentiality between husband and wife), but I feel like she should’ve went to the police about it. Like, you were the only person who knew what he was about to do! You could’ve saved dozens of peoples lives. Like, heffa! What do you think this is exactly? You thought he was just playing and that it was a game?! Sooo retarded. I hate to know that she knew that and didn’t do anything about it. I read this earlier this morning, so if there is any new information.. I have not been updated. This is only my opinion though. I think it’s ridiculous that she didn’t even try. One of my little sister and I’s friends since middle school made a post on FB the other day.. He’s a gay man. He only came out within the last couple years and when he read about this incident on Facebook he felt it necessary to voice his opinion. The good thing about it is I agree with him. He stated something along the lines of more equality and how it’s impossible for the LGBT community to do anything. I’m definitely in full understanding of my sexuality (definitely interested in only guys), but what he said is true! It doesn’t matter what you do sexually or how you do it.. Quite honestly it’s none of our damn business what people do in the privacy of their own home and bedroom and even walking down the street. Our friend said that he and his boyfriend have been walking down the street holding hands and people have been very terrible to them. Acting like they’re better then our friend because they can hold hands with an individual of the opposite sex. I personally don’t give a shit what you do and who you do it with as long as it makes you happy. If y’all aren’t causing a ‘Columbine’ scene or wanting to rape little kids like the rest of these heterosexuals you hear about all the time in school and on the news, then why the hell does it matter?? Leave it alone. Mind your own and keep your thoughts/actions to yourself.. Dummies.

Also, the baby and the alligator??? Where were the parents? Where was the handler to come and get this damn animal. Might be stupid to say, but WTF?? How did the alligator even get close enough to get the baby.. Soo many questions and so many unanswered. More to come on my opinion on this once more information has been released. I have A LOT to say on that one.

Well, I hope you all have a great night and I’ll talk to you guys soon!!! Bye and goodnight!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Day of Relief

Hello Quinn babies! Sorry for the wait on my blogs. I have been so distracted opening up my new business. I can’t wait for it to be officially all mine and then I can announce it to the whole world! “Standing on the rooftops everybody sing your heart out!!!” The realest line for my excitement right now.

Aside from that business, I have my resume’ business that I’m working on marketing and trying to get that to take off as well. So, quick shout out if you guys know anyone that needs a resume’ completed.. Feel free to tell them to contact me on Fiverr – search for resume’s and it’s for Briana Quinn. Just sayin’..

I learned today that my older sister has wayyyy more wisdom than I do (at times :)). I was about to have a mental breakdown at work today and when I called her she answered. I think she could sense that I needed to talk since typically she doesn’t answer the phone when she’s at work. UNLESS! She’s on her lunch break or in the bathroom, of course. That’s like any typical being though. Anyways, I was having a breakdown.. She gave me the wisdom of looking into my future and not my present or the past and to focus on what I have going on with me. As far as like my success that I can’t wait to bring into the Quinn world. The Scott world, too, but you know what I mean.. Hell.

Literally, I told her that my lunch was at 1 and I was not going to come back from lunch either. All I had to do was walk to my car and go home. I wouldn’t have even thought twice about it. In tears and everything, little does she know. No, this place is not the job of my dreams as I once dreamt it would be. It’s in fact far from it. I absolutely DESPISE my job. I don’t know anyone at my job who actually enjoys it. Well, outside of the snitches and bitches up there. There’s a main one in particular who gets onnnn my damn nerves. Like seriously. I don’t care if you got promoted or not.. Why tf is there a girl who was in my training class three weeks ago doing supervisor work?? Just because y’all grew up together. Bitch, bye. Like seriously.. That’s so stupid. I didn’t leave one Time Warner location to walk into another one. You have the same type of pettiness that happened at one of the TWC locations happening at this place. Like I don’t have time for that. We’re all grown, right? How ’bout we act like it? Thanks.

Anyways, back on to my sister. She’s the best! I can’t believe I get blessed with the two best sisters in this world!! Today, the oldest one shined and brought my back to my path of happiness. I’ll forever be grateful. Seriously. I was getting ready to do something I would really regret later. Just because of my priorities..ย NOT because I would miss it by any means.

Well, the struggle has been real today and I hope to have a greater blessed day tomorrow!!! Everyone have a great night and I’ll talk to y’all soon!!!

 

 

Graduations/Celebrations

Hello Quinn babies! Sorry I didn’t have a chance to write yesterday, but I just want to say the Lil Man graduated yesterday!! I’m very proud of him! He’s come a long way. Even though he’s missed a good almost 30 days of school this past year ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s okay though because he passed and walked the stage! He’s a great brother, man.

06-04-2016 part 2 003

Graduations are spent with people that you love the most and that support you no matter what. We had a great day yesterday!!

There is one thing I’d like to talk about, though. That’s parents.

Lesson number two: your parents are always your parents no matter what. Unless they haven’t been there. There’s a deeper reason I say this. Once parents have left the picture, broken that bond and kicked you to the curb (basically), you start to realize that you have to outsource your support and love from other individuals. It’s good to see parents around their children. I, on the other hand, did not have both parents in my life for my graduation. In fact, my “aunt and uncle” came to support me. I’ll forever be appreciative of them for that. That whole family is the bomb.com. Just sent from heaven. My boyfriends family came, too, but they were also there for him. It’s not the same, you know?? Yesterday, both of my boyfriends’ parents were there to support Lil Man as he walked the stage.

They haven’t been together in YEARS, so it was really good to see them there to support this dude on his big day. But let me explain why I brought up this point to begin with.. On important events, parents NEED to be there. Nobody wants to enjoy their big days alone. It’s sad when you see kids (more likely teens, not literal kids) alone and having to do things by themselves. I just feel bad. Every child in this world only gets the two parents. Whether it be birth parents, adoptive parents or step-parents. Now since the main topic is graduations, I wanted my parents to be there. Unfortunately, they couldn’t make it (I think someone in my family used the excuse that they didn’t know when I graduated).

Basically what I’m saying is: If you’re a parent, then be there for your kids always and forever. Yes, they’re going to get on your nerves. They’re going to push your buttons and annoy the hell out of you, but you’re the parent. You brought them into this world. You have to take care of them.. There’s options if you don’t want them in your life or maybe you can’t afford to have them in your life. Or if you think that they will be better off without you.. Don’t wait until they’re 18 to tell them that. Just be beneficial for them.

Hopefully all of this makes sense. Just a thought I had.

I’m actually about to head out to have lunch with my love button at Cotton Patch and then head to a BBQ for Lil Man’s graduation celebration! ย A whole weekend full of him and his family this weekend!!! I’ll talk to you guys later and have a great Saturday!!!

 

Beyonce’ and Jay-Z

Hello Quinn babies! Some of you may be very familiar with these two individuals. They love each other beyond belief. Yes, Jay-Z has cheated and made some stupid ass mistakes. But! When you think about it, you never hear about what Beyonce’ has done wrong. She is my favorite artist, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes I’d like to know both sides. Anyways, that’s off the topic. These two have been a real inspiration for me outside of the bad things that you hear in social media.

How have they been an inspiration, you might ask? Because they’re strong. They’ve been through hell and high water, split up and came back only to still be together after ten years. Do yall realize that?? Ten years!! I always wonder what it would be like to have that for myself. Then, one day I looked in the mirror and realized that I live that life every day. No, not with the man of the relationship cheating or anything like that. I mean the love that the two of them have. How strong they are to the human eye! God has really worked his magic with the power couple of the century. One might think that these words are little too hyped for them. You know what? I really don’t care because they are who I’d like my love button and I to be for the rest of our lives.

They took their love and broke throughย every thing you could ever imagine a couple to go through!! Yet, they’re still together and more in love every day. They took that love and created a child (which I have baby fever right now, just a side note) and brought that child into this world for all of us to see. There’s nothing more special than creating a family. I can’t wait to start my family with the man I love. Our children will always know how loved they are and that we will always be there for them. I say children for a much deeper purpose and eventually I will tell you all about it.. Stay tuned ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyways, my love button and I are working on us now and we have been together for 5 years!! Good Lord, right? Some can only dream of having the love that he and I share. We’re far from perfect and we work constantly on becoming a better us. I believe God put us together to make us stronger, to let others learn from us and to push each other to our limits of success. I also believe that only He can separate us. The things that life puts in front of us are challenging at time, deceitful and complicated. With the courage that He gives us, we can only excel above those things (I may have spelled that wrong) and struggle through it together. Even if that means strongly disliking each other at times. I wouldn’t have it any other way ๐Ÿ™‚

Love button and I will be together for the long haul and I truly believe that we will be our generations’ (of course, you have to know us to know this) Jay-Z and Beyonce’. Only related to them by their strength and passion for one another. If you’re reading this love button, let’s be this generations’ ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ (no pun intended). See picture below of my hard working man! Doesn’t look too bad, right? I might know what I’m doing a little bit ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well, that’s about it for today! That’s all that’s been on my mind. Oh! Only one more day to go before Lil Man graduates high school. I said Lil Man like he was 5, right? No he’s 18 years old and ready for college! He’s my boyfriends’ brother. I’m so excited about it. More detail to come for that though! Nothing outside of the ordinary happened in the jungle today either. That’s interesting, huh? Cady Heron has no stories to bring back home about the Mean Girls? Wow. I guess it was an alright work day!

Sometimes I forget to ask about yalls day! How inconsiderate of me.. Until next time my babies!! Talk to you soon and have a great night! Go snuggle up with your significant others or your teddy bears and a movie!! Bye ๐Ÿ™‚05-22-2016 004

It’s raining, it’s pouring… Why?

Hello Quinn babies! Let me tell you about this exhausting day I freaking had!! It really wasn’t that bad, actually. I know one thing, though.. If it takes you 22 years to do something in the medical industry, that may just mean you’re not cut out for it. I know I’m not going to make it with this job I have. It’s cool and everything like real relaxed, but.. Yeah, I need to move around from Call Centers. Oops, I mean Contact Centers (rolling my eyes). That’s what my job likes us to refer to it as. They think it makes the clientele feel more comfortable about scheduling their exams with us. Almost all of them are full of it, though. Lesson number one: Don’t work at a call center! They’re frustrating, no bueno and ridiculous. For instance, I may not get back to back calls at the one I’m at now, but the calls I do get.. Lord have Mercy, Jesus. A lady today called to receive some information about her recent appointments. You know, things I can’t really go into detail about due to HIPAA. But, I’m trying to help her out and she has the nerve to hang up on me and say I just don’t have time for this right now. Like lady.. You called me!! I didn’t call you! How do you not have the time to talk about it?? Bye Felicia..

Then, we have open enrollment at work this week for health care coverage.. I typically don’t speak on the topic because I’m terrible with politics, BUT why would I pay for healthcare coverage that costs me almost 300 a month. It’s just me on my plan, by the way. When I can go to the MarketPlace and get the same coverage (medical, dental and vision) for 120 a month. Now, it only makes it simpler to go through your place of employment. Why? Because you can change it almost whenever you want and they give you this handy little card known as the HSA card. It’s a Health Savings Account (which my start date was April 25,2016 and I have yet to receive this card). Our insurance kicks in tomorrow and yet I haven’t received the way that I will be paying for my doctors appointments. With that being said, why the hell do I have it? So stupid. Seriously.. Never work for this company I work for (I’ve told some people about my blog, so to cover myself I won’t be telling my full-time jobs name. Don’t need them calling this slander). For my job, you can just call me Cady Heron. Everyone I work with is like a bunch of wild animals. You have the lionesses, their cubs, the snitches and their bitches and then you have my people. I’ll call my people the female Damian and Janis (not literal definitions of them). It’s everyone else you have to look out for.. I’ll be damned if we literally don’t have the Mean Girls at this circus, too. Eventually I’ll go into more detail.

So, today it started raining. Like literally I heard thunder and it was like the trench that was holding it all together (otherwise known as clouds) just collapsed. All of this rain just exploded from the sky. Just ridiculous. I live about 20 minutes away from my job and it took about 2 hours to get home. It was an hour and 45 minutes to be exact (rolling my eyes…again). I hate the rain. The people here act like they don’t know how to drive all of a sudden. Causing accidents. Not to mention the flooding I experienced on my way home. I was just happy to be out of it. I ate some din-din and I’m about to call it a night.

Gotta wait on my love button, though! He was the only thing that made me smile and laugh today! I swear. You know I have to save the best for last. Every time I talked to him today, he had nothing but GREAT news for me. I anticipated every text and call from him. Then, to top it all off.. When he knew I was off.. I texted prior and told him it was raining pretty bad.. He called me and the first thing he said was “Are you okay, babe?”. Just melted my little soft spot I call a heart. I’m just lucky to have a man like him who cares so much. For those of you who don’t know, I write music. Just songs. Sometimes it’s hard to find music to go with the songs once it’s already written, but yeah. I have a song I wrote for him and I can’t wait to let him hear it. He typically loves the songs I write, but that doesn’t stop me from being a little hesitant and nervous about showing it to him. It was for our anniversary yesterday, but I ended up falling asleep before he got home! Apparently, I was exhausted at 11:30 at night. Imagine that.. A 22 year old woman who falls asleep at 11:30!

Well guys, I hope you have a great night and I’ll talk to y’all tomorrow!!

 

My Heart Goes Out to Her Baby

Hello my Quinn babies! Today I have had something on my mind. The day started off perfectly! My lovely boyfriend and I had some much needed nudey time and then we relaxed and watched some Catfish (the TV show)! I always love spending time with him. After everything that has happened within the last couple months, I can’t wait for every future moment we get to spend together. Today is our monthly anniversary! Yes, we are silly and lame. We do yearly and monthly anniversaries, but we love it that way!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Some background on me, I work at a Contact Center for a medical company. I also Favor in my down time. As well as, write resume’s for those who need the assistance. I’m also starting up my YouTube Channel again. A lovely series I call ‘Bout it with Bree’ (thanks to the help of my fabulous, writer sister, Teeka). I’m sure Teeka is reading this and looking at all of my grammatical errors. Sorry Tark, but we can’t all be geniuses in the writing area. Please give me a break! ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes, I’m a very busy woman at times, thus the name “Quinnland Universal Theme Park” was born. I have a lot going on and all at the same time I am able to balance starting a life all over again with my best friend, my lover and my soul mate. I can’t imagine life without him. I had it happen once (which was mostly my fault, but it does take ‘2 to make a thing go right, it takes two to make it out of sight’) and I will never let it happen again. I’m holding onto this man for the rest of my life until death do us part.

Anyways, I spoke with a woman a few days ago who said that she was going through some things and knew that she needed to see the doctor. I asked her what her issues were and she simply stated “I’m 40, I’ve had my tubes tied and now I’m pregnant”. She went on to say that she did not know what she would do with the baby since she has one in college already. Now typically I try not to get involved unless asked to, BUT I asked what she meant by that. She came back and said that she wanted anย abortion. I’m pretty outspoken about how I feel about that. I’m definitely Pro-Life. Say what you want, but terminating a pregnancy is terminating a blessing that God had for all of us. Hell that child could be the next Beyonce’ or the next Ghandi. You’ll learn as time goes on what I truly feel on the matter, but for now that will do.

It’s been on my mind so heavily because of my disbelief in the procedure, I guess. That and I don’t think anyone has ever straight up told me that’s their intentions. I think it goes against everything God put us on this earth to do. He put us here to procreate with one another. Well, that’s definitely part of the reason if nothing else. Ugh! I just wish people could not be so selfish. So what you have a child in college! The doctor tells you your warnings before you tie your tubes and one of the side effects (if you can call it that) of that procedure is possible tubal pregnancy. If you don’t want to get pregnant, tie your tubes and get on birth control. Or.. how about your 40!!! It’s close to time for you to stop having sex anyways… Tragic.

Okay, I’m off my pissy high horse. It’s Memorial Day and my love button (my boyfriend) is stuck at work. Hopefully, he has a great day and he can sell as much as he wants! Oh, what does he sell you might ask?? Cars. He sells cars. He’s my light-skin, curly haired dream and sells his favorite brand of car. Honda. He can work on them from the inside out and he can for sure sell the hell out of one to you. Just to add a little bit of a sales pitch in there for him lol. I’m sure his NTX EP3 brethren are very excited to know where they can go to have trusted hands working on their cars or to sell them a new one.

Well, hopefully you guys can enjoy the holiday and get well rested for your work day tomorrow! I, on the other hand, will be grilling and being fat here shortly! Then, I’ll be getting ready for work tomorrow myself. Have a great night and talk to you soon ๐Ÿ™‚

 

-Diary of a Forgiven Mixed Woman

Short, Sweet and to the Point

I started this blog, so that I could have a healthy outlet to remove my heavy thoughts out of my mind and to maybe help give advice from time to time about every life lessons. I may be 22, but I’ve been through some things and would like to help any individual learn from my mistakes and changes!
