I’ve had this immense need to stop smoking mostly because I feel like I don’t need it in my life anymore. I’ve been cold turkey-ing myself for the past couple of weeks but I do admit to cheating a couple of times especially when I’m bored or pissed or… bored.

I read on 9gag (my chicken soup for the soul) that the first step to quitting is to be broke so I’ve only had 100 in my wallet for the past 5 days which really doesn’t matter when your boyfriend supplies your cigarettes. #fail

I have also signed up for the gym and as much as I want to go everyday, I also do not enjoy having to wash my sports bra everyday either. That and I only own 3 pairs of socks. I’m going to steal some from my mom this weekend though so don’t worry. Not that it’s your problem.

I wonder if other people at the gym have instructors who are fatter than they are, because I do. If you do, how does that make you feel? Is it like, “damn, why is this fat bitch telling ME how to lose weight? She’s got more mass than I do.” or are you just chill about it?

Also, she had the hairiest legs for a woman. It’s almost not even legal to have that much hair on your legs. Look at me ranting.

I gotta poo.


Lesson Learned

Do not pinch a man’s balls when you’re mad- as great as it is for you, it could get you kicked out of the house! HAR. :>

Do turn on the exhaust after every dump and it also doesn’t hurt to bring in a can of Lysol with you. It shows that you are thoughtful.

Do not talk to yourself openly. Some people find that weird. It also gets kind of weird when the person you’re NOT talking to joins in on the conversation and throws you completely off track, making you forget what you wanted to tell yourself in the first place.

Do cheat on SimCity BuildIt but make sure someone else does it before you so you can assure it works. If and when you have to be that person, come up with a good wager in case it back fires.

Do NOT, I repeat, DO NOT tell anyone you cheated. To ensure full secrecy, make sure your biggest competition cheats as well. This is your new deepest, darkest secret. hihihi. $$$$

Do thank Paolo for doing all these nice things for you even if he shouldn’t cuz you just squeezed the living day lights out of his nuts. He’s a sweetheart and we intend to keep him. Even if he very rudely interrupts me when I’m having conversations with well… myself!

Monday Ramblings

I don’t want a good year, I want a good life.

It is not easy being mayor of a.city. Trust me, my Sims aren’t quite pleased with all my mayor decisions in the past week.

I had a cheeseburger and jolly hotdog for dinner. I feel FAT.

Gay paranormal erotica is the best. The absolute best. Beats all erotica, hands down.

Paypal sucks.


I blended this photo so people won’t make fun of my feet.


My face is so round, it makes me wanna be bulimic. Kidding. Maybe. Definitely.

Good night!

Hey, You

Hey you,

Belated 10th. I know we don’t talk as much as we used to and I’m not running home to get on my pc and write on you as much as before but I’d have you know that if you were a person, I’d hug you. If you were a good looking male, I’d probably sleep with you and make you my boyfriend because that’s what you’ve been like to me for a past 10 years. Scratch that, you’re better than a boyfriend- you never talk back.

Thanks for existing [well actually, thank my 14 year old self for creating you] and for reminding me that life doesn’t actually suck and it’s sucked much worse before but I still made it through that.

You’re 24 now AnD YoU No LonGeR TaWk LaYk DiZ. You’re a little more sophisticated, you pay rent, bring home the bacon and hopefully by next year, you’ve been able to travel the world at least a little bit. The dreams you wrote about 10 years ago may or may not have come true yet or ever but you’re still pretty goddamn fabulous, sailor mouth and everything.

So happy birthday, aa_bebe_phat_aa. You’re literally a dump… but you’re mine. ❤

The One with The Extremely Lax 10 Year Celebration

 Like they say, it’s better late than never. I had originally set this to go live on the eve of my blogging “career’s” 10th year birthday but I was too busy living in the real world to make this post.

So I guess this year’s resolution ought to be: to be more punctual but to live a more meaningful life while documenting it as necessary as possible. Or you know, whatever.

So to continue…

I have a thing for traditions. I used to love them soo much but I’ve eventually killed most of them off but kept this one- just because.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! I’ve been blogging for 10 wonderful, crazy years!! WHERE’S MY AWARD?!

If you click the years below, you will be able to see the changes I’ve made along the years with every answer. In the past 10 years, I’ve had 3 boyfriends, a million jobs, graduated grade school, high school AND college, traveled, moved in and moved out, started smoking, stopped smoking, started smoking again, gotten drunk and what not. Every time I look back on my past selves I admit; I feel repulsed, amused but always with a sense of empowerment. So enjoy everyone!! The tradition truly lives on!

It’s been an amazing ride and I’d like to thank everyone who made my 2014 as perfect as it was!

Unfortunately, I’m such an internet spazz that I wasn’t able to properly link and back up my photos from when I officially started blogging under Issaplease. This explains ALL the broken images on this site. I promise, 2015 will be better- I promise and I’ll try to fix the clutter :> I’m “smarter” now.

Thanks to everyone who’s been supporting my blog for the longest time ever! To all the friends I’ve made, the jobs I’ve gotten, the brands I’ve worked with and to all the lessons I’ve learned.

Fly Me To The Moon and Back

I started writing as a way to get over my depression and 10 years after, here I still am- no longer depressed but still writing my heart out and still making you guys laugh and smile at all the stupid sh*t I have to say. I am always grateful for that.

This blog is truly the biggest thing that I can ever leave this world and if you ever wanted to know who I really was: crazy, neurotic and a down right pain in the ass; you’d find it all if you skimmed through the pages of this blog that I ever so openly brag about and onIssatalks, where all the magic started.

I’m not going to skim through 2014 anymore like in my older posts because it’s already the 3rd of the new year and seriously, whose got the time for that anymore?! But rest assured, it was an amazing year and I so glad to have spent it with all of you!
