What Would You Do?

So, for the past twelve hours I've felt the entire world is against me...and if not against me, surely not with me. It all started when I was awakened from my, already not so peaceful, sleep. I guess a neighbor thought that ten o'clock in the morning was a good time to start drilling holes in his wall. It wasn't. It wasn't a good time at all. Ten in the morning was not a good time, because, once again...and no complaints, but I was working late...and then went out with some friends and then didn't get to bed until four am. Six hours of sleep is not enough for me these days!
The bad day continued when my lovely boyfriend showed up at my house this afternoon. I love his lovely company any day, any time, doing anything. He on the other hand did not want to stay inside on this particular day! Somehow I ended up upset, which made him upset which ended in many minutes of silence. The entire day has continued in negative happenings. Making me feel like the entire world around me is against me. I don't know what I want to do. But I know I want to do something in good company. What would you do if the whole world was against you?

My Top Five

First and foremost-my # 1-Josh Hartnett.
The dreamiest guy ever! His sweet sexy smile, hot body, striking eyes and stunning looks makes Josh nothing less than my top choice for sexy babes.

I have to say, Ryan Gosling follows closely. He's so good looking. Simply gorgeous. I also heard he's Mormon...which gives him extra points.

One thing interesting, just came to mind...kind of a weird observation...both of these men have deep soft voices which are so attractive. Anything these hotties do is sexy...I mean, take a close look at them! awww...someday my prince will come...
okay, continuing...

Colin Farrell-the dirty nasty sexy hot babe! MMMM.....

Paul Walker-...look at those stunning baby blue eyes.

and lastly.... -I did have a model...but changed to....

Dave Annable- so hot!

A Little Venting.....

Okay, so I have some things on my mind that are quite bothersome. According to professionals, writing your thoughts down actually helps calm your nerves and "come to a conclusive decision on the matter". So, here it goes.

Tiff # 1
Wells Fargo
Now, don't get me wrong, I think Wells Fargo is a pretty great place to bank. I've personally been banking with them since my first savings account when I was a child. However, I don't agree with some of their ways in handling certain things. I for one, had been working with a company for almost a year. During this time, I hadn't had any problems depositing my checks..but one day while looking over my account, I noticed numerous overdraft charges. I know to how manage my money, and I'm pretty good about only spending what I have. Turns out, my paychecks had been coming from an out of state company and the bank was putting holds on my checks when they were deposited, unbeknownst to me. After speaking with a close friend who works for Wells Fargo, I find out this happens all the time. And that's not it. It's been such a hassle trying to speak with someone who can actually take care of the problem and give me a refund. I will not give up though. I'm determined to find a manager who will help. *I'll keep you posted on this.

Tiff # 2
The Fire Alarm in my Building
Over the past two weeks my fire alarm has gone off three times! This is completely exasperating. Especially when a piercing alarm goes off at 3 am while I'm peacefully dreaming. And again a week later at 6 am after a long nights work the evening before. And yet again that same day in the middle of the afternoon. It is an annoyance being evacuated for several hours waiting for the fire department to search the entire building and then give the okay to go back inside...only to find that the elevator is closed for several more hours until they can fix that. Not only that, but I think the intense ringing may be harmful to my beta fish, blueberry. Our fire alarm has gone off so many times in the last few months that people don't even evacuate now. They sit on their balconies to get away from the ear-splitting alarm...at least until the fire dept makes them get out. Even the fire department is tired of getting called out to our building. One day there will be a real fire, and what a sad day that will be as many of the neighbors won't vacate and the fire department takes it's time thinking it's just another false alarm.

A Nice Surprise on an Awful Day

Recently I'd had a bad day. A bad day, with a bunch of bad news. It happened to be the same day as my five year class reunion. I'd already RSVP'd and had to go. So I put on my best game face and went. I thought it might be good to just get out of the house and meet up with old friends and chat with current ones. Turns out, in all actuality going made me more sad. Now, I don't mean to sound pessimistic. But seeing everyone happily married with their cute little kids running around probably wasn't the best thing to cheer a... well... newly divorced me up. I'd had it with having an awful day. I wanted to get home to my cute little (and yes it is little) loft and sleep. note: sleep is a wonderful prescription for an upset Natasia. So, I pulled up to my house and found a cute boy waiting for me with pizza, movies and these beautiful orchids. How did he know orchids were one of my favorite flowers? Good guesser! How sweet. Even better, they are still blooming and even more pretty now. Every time I see them they put a smile on my face. What a change he made in my persona, and what a nice surprise to an ending of an awful day.

The Dancer Who Left Us Tonight....

Courtney...the amazing Knicks basketball dancer who, given the opportunity, could out perform any of her peers on any style of dance, was apparently not America's favorite dancer. However, she was mine, and I think she deserves this post, written by...well me...ranting and raving about her outstanding dance technique. The girl is beautiful, she knows how to keep the crowd in awe and she has the best solo's of all the dancers. Once again, America did not choose the best dancer. I'm sure I'll continue watching future seasons simply for the unique and original choreography...but other than that...I'm sick of watching the best dancers get cut in the finale. Come on voters...learn more about the art and stop voting for people who don't deserve it!
