Things I don’t like about the iPhone
I recently, unwillingly, made the switch from Android to iOS. Long story short, I was peer pressured into doing it. Actually, that’s what I like to tell myself to make this transition easier. Because blaming others for your “problems” is what everyone does, right? Ha.
As a natural complainer and former loyal Android user, I have a few things I do not like about the iPhone that I’d like to mention.
1. There’s no blinking light or way to see if I have a notification/text without waking up my phone.
2. There’s no Swype.
3. Autocorrect, screw you.
4. This screen is so freaking small. (I’m coming off of a Samsung Galaxy S3).
5. The process to custom make your own ringtone on the iPhone is 10x more difficult than it is on Android. I’d rather do calculus. Not really, but it’s a close call.
6. Default browser is Safari. Really?
7. Default GPS is Maps. Really?
8. Easily transfer photos from my Android to my iPhone? Forget about it.
I do have a few things I like about this phone, but since one of my favorite past times is to complain, I’ll leave it at this for now.
And I know what it looks like…if I have so many reservations about this phone, why did I get it? Eh, figured I’d give it a shot. I mean, everyone has an iPhone right? It’s time to conform.
If you’re wondering, I got the 5S in black. It’s not even a REAL black…(and the bitterness continues…)
P.S. I still carry around my S3 everywhere I go. The attachment issue is so real.
Shit my trainer says
"Hey Jeannie, you remind me of the girls I met in Japan…only, I had to pay for them."
"So I had this thing the other night called Ramen."
Trainer: Hey, I like your tights.
Me: Oh, thanks!
Trainer: Every fucking guy likes a girl in tights. Get your ass back to work.
"You fucking smell like lotion! Stop complaining!"
"Why are your shoulders so tight? Do you give hand jobs for a living?"
I’m never going back
The past is in the past
Let it go, let it go

2014 Resolutions and Reflections
It wasn’t that long ago when I made a post about not believing in New Years Resolutions. I still stand by my original statements, however, this year has been one crazy ride and I would be stupid to not set any goals for myself in 2014.
I remember going into 2012 with bold eyes to make sure it would be a great year. Guess what? It was. It was one of the best years I had ever experienced. But you know that saying—What goes up must always come down—yeah, it most definitely came down in 2013.
Trying my hardest to not sound resentful, but this year was very, very difficult from start to finish. I would be lying if I said the events that happened this year weren’t painful, because they were. But I knew each moment was something I needed to endure in order to get to the next step. Often, it’s hard to notice change in someone in such little time. But, I can safely say 2013 forced me to grow the hell up—and fast.
Fast forward to today, the very last day of 2013, I’m going into 2014 just like I did with 2012. My eyes are wide open and I’m going to make this year an amazing and unforgettable one. Not only do I have goals to improve my professional life, but my personal self too. What are they?
1. Try to be less judgmental.
Who am I kidding? I’m Jeannie. I get some sort of sick demented pleasure out of judging people. But in all seriousness, giving people a chance to come around is something I learned this past year and will attempt to continue that onto 2014.
2. Learn happiness.
Now this can be defined in many ways, but I learned in these past few months that if you force yourself to be happy in low times, it will actually become real happiness.
3. Show compassion.
I know I have it somewhere in me, I just have to find it.
4. Stop comparing myself to others who seem "more successful."
I know I’ll get mine soon, I just have to be patient. Ah yes, patience, patience is another one to add to the list.
5. Live in the moment and don’t stress about the future.
Feelings are shifting like the tide, and I think too much about the future
It just gets crazier!
Maybe I spoke too soon when I said my dreams were getting crazy. Last night, it got even crazier! Here are 2 symbols I saw last night…
Hallway: To see a hallway in your dream symbolizes self exploration. It is the beginning of the path that you are taking in life. You are going through a transitional phase and journeying into the unknown. It also signals spiritual enlightenment, emotional growth physical prowess, new opportunities and mental passages in your life
Ski Lift: To see or ride a ski lift in your dream indicates that you are achieving new heights and overcoming your fears. You have a command over your emotions and are confronting those feelings and inhibitions that you have repressed. You are close to bringing them to the surface.
Oh boy oh boy! This is starting to get obsessively fun…
I’ve always been very intrigued with finding the meaning behind my dreams. I will admit, I have spent a few hours in a book store reading a super dense book about dreams and their symbolism.
Recently, my dreams have become extremely…”colorful.” Actually, my dreams have always been very entertaining. Lucky me!
After last night’s dream, I couldn’t wait to get in front of my computer and decipher all of the images I saw. Here’s some of the images that appreared in my brain last night.
Bicycle: To dream that you are riding a bicycle signifies your desires to attain a balance in your life. You need to balance work and pleasure in order to succeed in your current undertakings. If you have difficulties riding the bicycle, then it suggests that you are experiencing anxieties about making it on your own.
Wheels (more specifically, losing the wheels to my bike): To dream that you lose a wheel from a vehicle indicates that you are feeling lost. You do not know what direction to go or where you are headed.
Chains: To see chains in your dream signify your need to break free from a routine, old idea, or a relationship. If you are being chained, then some part of you is being forcefully put in check.You are being held back from what you really want to do.

I was scared to death I was losing my mind
I couldn’t close my eyes I was pacing all night
I think I found the light out the end of the tunnel
I couldn’t find the truth I was going under
But I won’t hide inside
I gotta get out, I gotta get out
