» I've been in a foul mood since yesterday. I really don't know the reason, but I am irritated with everything and everyone right now. Worst thing is I'm at the office and there's an end-user test going on one of my applications which will bring so many questions and it'll drive me even more insane.

» I've bought the plane tickets for our vacation next month and guess what, mom immediately asked me if we can change the date on her return ticket. NO MOM, WE CAN'T, THEY WERE THE CHEAPEST DEAL TICKETS I COULD FIND AND YOU CAN'T CHANGE IT. Every.single.time I do something regarding planning or buying for something we'll do together, she does this. She always has some other plans that will complicate the already made plan which stresses me out more that I can handle.

» My right arm is aching. I know it's stress related so I'm trying to relax, but since I don't know what's stressing me out this much, I fail. I am hopelessly trying to find a comfortable position to sit, but nothing works. Plus I woke up with a headache today so I'm hoping the painkiller I took a few minutes ago will solve both of my physical problems.

» Watched Cougar Town season finale last night and it was AMAZING. Couple of spoilery stuff... )

» The woman in the next office is talking too loudly. I am this close to barging in there and choking her.

» Happy Endings is awesome! Mostly Eliza Coupe is awesome than any other. The only thing that left me sad about the end of Scrubs was her absence on my screen, but now I can be happy again.

» Mom asked me if I wanted to extend my vacation to 2 weeks and I said no, because I seriously cannot handle a 2 week long family vacation, but I told her I can't take 2 consecutive weeks off from work. I love them all, but we're not that compatible when we are kept in a strange place too long. No, no, no and no.

» I wish people would just let me be today, but then I get sad because I get too lonely. I can never win. I want to punch something, but instead, I will use these gifs to express my current emotional status.

Went to shopping with my mom today. First 30 mins. were pretty enjoyable and productive, but then mom went all "crazy customer" in one of the stores, something related to not being able to understand where the check out line starts, but unlike her, I CANNOT CARE LESS whenever something like that happens in a store. I just wait, pay and leave. After we left the store she scolded me pretty bad! I said "What the fuck mom? Chill the fuck down." in a more humanly manner without the fucks and stuff, but she was convinced that I made her look bad.

After several facepalms later, she dragged me to a fitness center (in which I have a 6 month membership ((A GIFT FROM MY UNCLE THAT APPARENTLY KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT ME)) that was about to expire in February ((THANK GOD!)) and I haven't even been there once) After learning how little time left on the membership (oh my god, horror... NOT) she forced me to go with her until Feb. I couldn't say anything because fitness centers intimidate me! I'm going tomorrow MORNING to get my measurements done and receive my program for the week. "WHAT THE FUCK!!!!11!??" I said to myself while leaving the center, but too late. The appointment is at 10 am for tomorrow. The lady who arranged the stuff has the same name with me, Dilek, and was pretty cute with everything SO IT INTIMIDATED ME EVEN MORE. GOD, I HATE IT. I can't even...

I know some of you love working out, but it's just not for me. I get bored and don't see the point, really. Although, if I really have to, I saw a Latin dance class at noon, MAYBE I can entertain myself with that. I don't know...

Whatever. I bought something, let me show you with crappy photos.

Forgive my retarded personality while taking these photos. They're really bad. )

Weird day was weird. I'm doing this fitness center thing for my mom. When February comes, I'm out. I have better things to do in that time frame... like, watching TV and writing? Yeah. Lame stuff, but MY STUFF.

It's been exactly 10 days since I last posted something here. When did I become so lazy? I'm quite active on Twitter and Tumblr, but LJ has been pretty slow, I know.

Last week--last 2 weeks to be honest-- have been the most tiring weeks of my life. Work was killing me (it still does, but I kind of got used to it) and then my cousin got married last Sunday and since Wednesday, our house was full of guests. At the end of all this: mom got sick, I was extremely tired and couldn't go to work on Monday, everyone was extremely cranky, but now we're all okay. Mom's on vacation in Switzerland (so random, I know) and I'm back at work.

Also, I caught the bouquet at the wedding! Hooray! I'm getting married next :P As soon as I find someone to marry.

There are so many weddings and engagements around me, it feels overwhelming. It's best to ignore it all.

Since I was pretty much occupied at all times this last 2 weeks, I wasn't very productive. I couldn't write/read. I'm planning on redeeming my lack of creativity this week, we'll see. I'm re-reading Switching Time for research purposes. I also watched Sybil, recommend it to everyone. Loved it.

I have absolutely nothing interesting to add to this post. Except maybe I should tell you how excited I am that I'll watch Glee's Britney episode tonight! Was it as epic as everyone expected? Just say yes or no, I don't know who'll sing what, I didn't "song-spoil" myself as usual :))

Yup, that's all folks. I'm so sleepy right now, it's crazy. And I'm supposed to work? Oh yeah. Sure.

Hai! It's Friday! And this weekend is my birthday weekend! Awesome times ahead! ♥

I'm not planning on doing anything special for the occasion since it's on Sunday and I hate doing stuff on Sunday, but I'm going out with couple of friends tomorrow. We'll just chill and eat sweets and hang out ~~ Good times...

I can't wait for this day to be over so I can go home, take a shower, watch Vampire Diaries (and Nikita) THEN I SHALL WRITE! I won't be able write as much as I want this weekend, I feel it. On top of it, next weekend there's a wedding and our house will be full of guests. No writing at that time either. So tonight's the night. I should at least finish 2 chapters to cover for next weekend's "planned unproductiveness".

Lately, when I look around all I can see is enagaged people. Wtf. I'm kind of depressed. I'm single and probably will be single in the near future and most of my friends -- even the ones who said they'd never get married -- are getting serious with their boyfriend/girlfriends. Meeting with parents, enagement rings, promise rings, etc. etc. And my long-time-single cousin is getting married next weekend. What the F, big time!

The thing I'm dreading the most about that wedding is this question: "So Dilek, when are we going to see your boyfriend?" Urgh, I hate it. I don't have a boyfriend and honestly if there's a store where you can buy one, just gimme the address and I'll gladly pay for it. Yeah, I admit, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO MEET THIS ONE PERSON I'LL SPEND MY ENTIRE LIFE WITH. Can't he just come by my house and knock the door? I promise I'll fall in love in first sight! I can do that! I just need him to find me. Pathetic. I know.

Yeah whatever. This post wasn't intended to be about my woes of being single. I shall put an end to this and go back to work.

11:11 *makes a wish*

7 more work hours to go...

It's been really long since I've made a decent update, so I will categorize the stuff on my mind and let you all know how my life is going. I know you're interested (even though it's not going to be as exciting as I'm hoping it would be).

Let's go;

REAL LIFE:

My life lately consists of only 2 things: Heat and work. )

WRITING:

I've written 2 chapters worth of stuff 2 weeks ago >=/
I want to write more. I want to finish my current story and move on to the next one until I have nothing waiting in the queue of my mind. It's almost impossible, but I have hope. One day I'm going to look at my writing folder and see only one word document that is incomplete. ONE DAY IT'LL HAPPEN GUYS, I KNOW IT!

FAMILY:

My family literally abandoned me this weekend.I hate staying alone in the house. )

TV:

Aside from my regular summer shows (True Blood, Drop Dead Diva and WEEDS!!) I tried watching Covert Affairs. It didn't click with me. I really like both leading actors, but it feels so artificial to me, so I gave up after 4 and a half episodes. I think I'm still stuck at the Alias phase.

READING:

I'm still reading Harry Potter. Yeah, I know. BUT THOSE BOOKS ARE HUGE! I've recently finished The Goblet of Fire and I still couldn't pass the first few chapters of The Order of the Phoenix. It's going to take me a lot longer to go through that one big ass novel. I feel like sitting down and reading a book is a waste of time compared to writing one, but since I CAN'T DO THAT EITHER it makes me sad. And mad. I'm smad.

FRIENDS:

I don't want to go out because it's too hot. Therefore I don't call anyone and nobody calls me either.

OTHER STUFF:

I'm constantly in a "meh" mood. I want to feel better. As soon as the weather gets better--AND BY "BETTER" I MEAN "COLDER"--I'll be fine, but that particular period of time seems so far away at this point. I'm annoyed.

Yup, this is it. My mind feels a lot organized at the moment, thanks for listening.

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil, without saying a word.

In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners.

Yup, it's a brand new year and nothing's changed whatsoever :P

I directly went to bed after the countdown and opening a couple of presents so I'm very well rested. We'll have guests today, first guests of the year. My cousin and her husband with their new born baby Sude came from London last Friday, they'll be having lunch here at our house today, along with my other cousin and his wife. I only care about the baby, LOL.

Of course, whenever we invite guests to our house mom goes crazy with cleaning and cooking so the first thing I was assigned to do this morning was dusting (which I hate.) I keep sneezing because of dust and smell of cleaning spray but it's okay, as long as mom doesn't start yelling, phew!

Hopefully guests will leave before 8 pm so I can just sit down and write and have a nice night. Tomorrow I'll be meeting with a friend for lunch, she came from NY for the new year. Can't wait to get some gossip, hehe >:)

Okay, now you know what I'll be doing for the next two days so your life is complete. No need to thank me, just doing my friendly duties.

It smells like cabbage, me likes.

Eta: I've updated my TV schedule with returning dates of the shows for winter and I now have a 2010 scrapbook! Yay! :)
