Picnic in the cemetary

  Had some fun with Hannah today. Went to the farmer's market and had another picnic. We went to the Fulton St cemetary again. We like visiting all the local resting plots you see.
Her friend also made me a Rainbow Dash vinyl cut out, which I stuck on the car. She and her husband own and operate a vinyl cutting business. Pretty cool stuff.
  Also getting more into cigars. Tried a Cuban Reject Torpedo and a Punch. Both were very good. I bought an Obsidian, Diesel, & a Cuban Reject Churchill to try this next week.
  I work a ten hour shift tomorrow closing, then I open the next day. Goodnight.

Everyday is exactly the same.

  One and a half hours to go with work for the day.. Goodness it is kicking my butt today. Trying to keep chipper.
  Was talking to the store manager today and he complimented me on my moustache again. Also found out that he likes ren-faires. Pretty cool guy when he isn't punched in.
  Smoked my second Cigar yesterday. A "Red Witch - Robusta"... And she was a nasty witch at that. Good cigar, just to spicy for me at the moment.
  Gotta jet.

Work, smart phones, & cigars..

  Well it is nearly August now. The wedding is nearly upon us, 98 more days. I am still full-time at Menard's. I bought a smart phone, my first one, a Samsung S II, from a friend. I like it.

  I became a part of a business, Life Leadership, which is a leadership development business. It is making Hannah and I have hope, that we have a purpose and a goal. Good stuff.

  Also, yesterday was my future father-in-law's birthday, so we got him some cigars. Naturally I bought some for myself as well. It was my first time smoking a cigar, and simply put, it was wonderful. I tried a Black Pearl, but I have a Red Witch & a Cuban Reject left.

  Alright, time to go to work.
Cheers!

P. S. I am also trying to stop swearing as well.

Summer is coming..

Well,
  It is June.. I am full-time at Mendard's now. I work a lot. I hardly see Hannah. I live with her parents. I am depressed, confused, and yet somewhat content (not living here, gracious no).
  We have been looking at apartments now that I got that raise, and there is some luck. I don't know why I bother to blog when all I do is use it as a diary (I have a hard time writing my thoughts down, but typing allows me to put them down at a closer speed than manually).
  Been taking on extra hours, also adjusting to the fact that working so much and seeing everyone I don't work with so little is what I will have to get used to the rest of my life. Maybe eventually I can return to the bliss of my childhood, where I had time for passions and hobbies, let alone time to read for pleasure..
  Also, I like this song.. And agree that it'd make for a neat cover if Switchblade Symphony came back from the dead.


P.S. The wedding is also looming, I don't know what to feel towards it as even I am doubting that is will happen without outside intervention from God, which I know He is blessing us, but still.. W/e right?

My Saturday Night Off 04/26/2014

  Well my night off, (I open Saturday's then work 2nd shift on Sunday) and I am trying to figure life out as usual, trusting in God and feeling empty.
  Hannah started construction of some fairy wings for her Senior pictures, using cellophane, glue, and poster board. Seems to be going well, she is going for a luna-moth influenced type of fairy.
  I love costumes, such fun, to pretend to not have any worries.

Sewwing

Where to begin? Sad, depressed, stressed, and feeling hopeless as I usually do...
  Well I have been back in Michigan for some time now and I've been working at Menard's since early February and I have become employee of the week twice now (only once a month you are allowed and then it is placed in a drawing for the month), and being out of 280+ people I think that is pretty good. They pay well and are a great place to work for... It just isn't enough to live on at the moment..

  Needless to say I am working all the hours I can and am trying to fix my car/save up for a new one, plus just save money.. I'm also looking at different jobs because with the wedding and all we will need a little bit more to live off of.

  I'm sad and find trouble wanting to continue, my fiance knows this, and so does God, but why does that not help?

  Oh, and I'm sewing more shtuff onto my denim jacket. I made a "Ministry" patch and am currently attaching pop-tabs.. Ee'Yup.

A charcoal suit.

First Charcoal Gray Suit.

(Also, What I'm Wearing Today...)

  Wow, I finally own one after looking in thrift stores for the past 10 months, I found it at a Goodwill 2 days ago. It's a 2 button, Hill and Archer with pleated trousers that were much to long. It is striped with red, blue, and a teal/green alternating. I usually don't like fabric patterned that way, however it is growing on me with this suit.
  Single vent, the jacket was measured at a 40L which is roughly my size and fits surprisingly well.
Since the trousers were to long and it is pleated I added a cuff after setting the hem at a half break.

 Wearing my blue Brooks Brothers shirt I found for $2 and tailored to my torso.
(Ignore the unkempt facial hair please)

Not the best picture but I'm working with what I can here,
I took the legs in on each side to slim it and then cuffed,
 I'm very please with the outcome.

  So the lapel is a little wider than I like but it works very well with the suit, and also the pants have higher rise so they ride at my waist like I prefer. Overall, a excellent $12 suit.
