Nicole: You Win

It was an epic battle but someone had to lose. Considering my recent failure, I figured I might as well go out in a blaze of glory. So I concede defeat; Nicole you are victorious in the great battle of not cutting our talons nails for the longest period of time.

Last night I noticed that I had a tiny little break/rip on one of my nails. Then I noticed the same on 3 other nails. That was pretty much a death sentence to my nails because it was just a matter of time before I snagged it on something and ripped it off. Just thinking about it makes me cringe.

I went crazy with my nail clippers. I cut my nails as short as humanly possible without hurting myself. Look how weird my nails look now! It feels amazing to not have to worry about my long ass nails

I give these about a week before they grow enough for me to be able to square them. Fun times.

Tomorrow I am going to pick up the paperwork from my doctor’s office for my dog. I am so freaking excited I can barely stand it. I had an idea today: would it be tacky if I threw myself a puppy shower? You know, like a baby shower but for a puppy. Let me explain my reasoning. I have gone to countless baby showers for friends and family which means that I have bought them countless presents for their babies. I am happy to celebrate their choice to have a baby so does that mean that I get jack shit because I’m fairly certain that I’m never going to have a baby?  Why can’t  they celebrate my puppy and the fact that I will not be bringing a screaming snot-monster that will one day be a horrible teenager into the world?

Here is some stuff that I bought for my puppy. I really feel like an expectant mother. I always end up having long conversations with people about pets when they seem me buying all this dog stuff.

This bed looks so comfy. I wish I had one of these when I was a baby.

I got him a food bowl and two toys. The newspaper looking one makes a crinkly noise and also has a squeaky ball. The other one yells “Oh noooooooooooooooo!” when you press its belly.

This is like a shamwow for dogs. lol It’s supposed to be super absorbent so I can dry my dog off after a bath. Of course I also bought a leash.

Lastly, I purchased a mat for his crate. I still haven’t purchased a crate, though. I saw a lot of them on ebay so I might buy one there.

Can you tell I’m so ready to get a dog?  As you can tell, my carpet is a light color. I am wondering how long it will stay that way once I get a dog. I doubt turds look good on it. 🙁 I don’t know how I’m going to deal with the mess that comes along with having a dog, but I am sure it will be more than worth it.

P.S. I was kidding about the puppy shower. Well, only sorta kidding. Celebrate my puppy damnit!

Where U Been Girl?

Every time I say I’m feeling fantastic, life kinda bitchslaps me a little bit. I don’t know why I’ve been feeling kind of blah the last two days. I passed out all day yesterday. I seriously fell asleep at noon and woke up like at 6pm and then went back to sleep at 11pm. How weird is that?  I had a weird dream last night too that I can’t quite remember but that I know made me feel strange when I woke up. I haven’t even gone to the gym! I dragged myself out of bed this morning and went to the mall today so I could find something for my mom since tomorrow is Mother’s Day. I ended up getting her a perfume set since she’s a perfume whore like me. There were so many freaking people out shopping and it was pretty hot outside: it’s perfect beach weather.

I also noticed that I have a lot of comments that I haven’t responded to which makes me feel bad because I love to interact with all of you. I promise I’ll catch up today. I also haven’t even changed my nail polish…now you know something is wrong. hahaha

I am having a major problem right now: I really, really, really want to buy some Cult Nails polishes because they are on sale for $5. AAAARRRRGGGHH! Should I break my promise not to buy polish for one month?

I’m contemplating painting my nails right now but don’t know what color to use. I need to pull myself out of this funk!


Why start a blog, you ask? Well, as a kid, I thought I was going to become a writer. I remember borrowing Tales Of A Fourth Grade Nothing from my 4th grade teacher Miss Skipper and devouring it. Who is this Judy Blume person, and why does she entertain me more than all the cartoons in the world put together? This was saying a lot because at that point I was thoroughly convinced that JEM was the greatest thing EVER! Of course my thirst for reading didn’t stop there, and I continued to discover more and more books. I was the kid who secretly loved every single assigned reading book while the rest of the class whined about how boring the books were.

Island of the Blue Dolphins in 5th grade. Hello loneliness and isolation.

A Wrinkle In Time in 6th grade. It had me at tesseract.

The Witch Of Blackbird Pond in 7th grade. Who am I?

Romeo and Juliet in 8th grade. Bardolatry ensues.

Catcher In the Rye in 9th grade. Yes, you’re all phonies.

Macbeth in 10th grade. Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow…

Le Petit Prince  in 11th grade. Voici mon secret. Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu’avec le cœur. L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

Hamlet in 12th grade. To this day I can recite Hamlet’s soliloquy by heart.

College opened a whole new world for me and that is when I discovered Gabriel García Márquez, Ralph Ellison, T.S. Eliot, John Donne…the list could go on forever. Then, one day I lost my passion for literature. I can’t exactly pinpoint when and why this happened. So why am I rambling about literature? Although the name of this blog may be misleading, I plan to write about more than just nail polish. I don’t exactly have a plan for this blog, but I hope that it will help me to get back into writing. Besides, putting my thoughts  down on paper…errr…a blog…has got to be therapeutic. God knows after the year I’ve had I should be in therapy!

So if you’re reading this, I hope that you will continue to read.
