List of My Phobias

Apiphobia Fear of bees.
- Bees CHASE me. All the time.

Arachnephobia/Arachnophobia Fear of spiders.
- If you have not seen my previous post about my walk
with Yoshi, check it out under Adventures.

Atelophobia Fear of imperfection.
- Even though I'm not perfect, almost everything I do is
for self-improvement.

Atychiphobia Fear of failure.
- Believe it. I have a 4.0 GPA.

Automatonophobia Fear of ventriloquist's dummies, animatronic creatures, wax statues
- Who isn't afraid of ventriloquist dummies?

Gephyrophobia, Gephydrophobia, or Gephysrophobia Fear of crossing bridges.
- Luckily I don't have to cross many bridges around here.
But crossing bridges even in Super Mario 64 freaked me out.
They were fucking narrow.

Gerascophobia Fear of growing old.
- I like having such a good memory.
Forgetting my memories would literally kill me.

Harpaxophobia Fear of being robbed.
- I'm so afraid of having my stuff stolen, I've almost stopped
having so many things, cause I'll be attached to them.
Imagine me going through the trouble of collecting CDs and books,
and then someone robs my house. I'd be upset to the max.

Pupaphobia Fear of puppets.
- Enough said.

My Broken Toe and Me


A few weeks ago, I broke my toe.
Because I was running too fast.
To the bathroom.
And hit a door.

I freaked out, my toe looked like it was
going to fall off.

Witnesses to my stupidity: Lauren,
and Charm through video-chat.

My toe looked like a grape jolly rancher,
according to Kayla at work.

I need to watch where I'm going.
It's almost better now.

Would I Have Been a Nazi?

I think my result will comfort you.

Your result for The Would You Have Been a Nazi Test...

The Expatriate

Achtung! You are 15% brainwashworthy, 36% antitolerant, and 19% blindly patriotic

Congratulations! You are not susceptible to brainwashing, your values and cares extend beyond the borders of your own country, and your Blind Patriotism does not reach unhealthy levels. If you had been German in the 30s, you would've left the country.

One bad scenario -- as I hypothetically project you back in time -- is that you just wouldn't have cared one way or the other about Nazism. Maybe politics don't interest you enough. But the fact that you took this test means they probably do. I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt.

Did you know that many of the smartest Germans departed prior to the beginning of World War II, because they knew some evil shit was brewing? Brain Drain. Many of them were scientists. It is very possible you could have been one of them.

Conclusion: born and raised in Germany in the early 1930's, you would not have been a Nazi.


The Would You Have Been A Nazi? Test

I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell

Currently reading:
I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell


Donny has graciously lent me his copy of this book.
A few chapters in and I'm already laughing my ass off.
(On the inside. I don't laugh my ass off by myself.)

The summary on the back:
"My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole. I get excessively drunk at
inappropriate times, disregard social norms, indulge every whim, ignore
the consequences of my actions, mock idiots and posers, sleep with more
women than is safe or reasonable, and just generally act like a raging
dickhead. But, I do contribute to humanity in one very important way:
I share my adventures with the world."

A few parts that made me internally LMAO:
"9:42: Hot girl #2 is into me. She begins telling me a story about how
she got pulled over once for a DUI, and had to blow into something like
this, and the cop let her off. She tells me that she always wanted to be
a cop, but couldn't pass the entrance exam to the police academy, even
though she took it twice. I tell her she must be really smart. She stops
paying attention to me. Hot girl #2 is apparently smart enough to detect
thinly veiled sarcasm."

"After a post-shot round of beers, the mechanical bull started up. Hate not
only signed himself up, but continuously yelled across the bat at the fat
redneck with the smudged glasses until he came over and signed up also.
El Bingeroso slammed a ten dollar bill on the bar, and called the redneck

El Bing "Hey FATASS, ten bucks says my friend rides longer than you."
Redneck "Screw you, northern bitch. I'll fucking outride your mom."
El Bing "What? My mother's not here, idiot. You just have to outride him,"
pointing at Hate. "

"Slingblade decides that his food is taking too long and that he can do
better than the current line cook, so he leaves the table and goes into
the kitchen. There is no one in there, so he messes with the griddle,
flipping knobs and switches until it turns on. The female cook comes
around the corner, she sees him, stops and stares at him in
astonishment for a few seconds as he pours some pancake mix on
the griddle. He sees her, and she questioningly shrugs her shoulders
at him, to which he replies:

"I'm hungry. I'm gonna make me some flapjacks."

She didn't think it was funny, and we had to leave out second
restaurant of the night. "

8th Grade Myspace About Me

What scares me is... I haven't changed much.

These things make up my lifeee:

Chillin’ with my friends at mi casa. Writing. Playing guitar. Laughing at the most random things ever. Walking to village square. Talking on the phone. Cutting my old clothes into little pieces. Putting my possessions in Ziplocs. Dancing like a loser. Youtube videos. Losing my stuff. Procrastinating. Talking in different voices. Pissing off my dog. Eating candy and unhealthy junk. Discovering new addicting tv shows. Sarcasm. Taking unflattering pictures. Reading books. Renting movies on netflix. Buying clothes I never wear. Being this strange girl that surprisingly has friends. :]

About Me

Hi, I'm Candice. A guitar major at LVA. I'm either going to change the world or take it over. It would take a textbook to tell you about me, but one word to describe me best: independent. I hate having to depend on others for anything. I'll help you anytime, but I won't be taken advantage of. Either I like you, or you don't exist. Disliking you would be a waste of my time. Don't get me wrong, I'm just as nice as a girl who loves ponies, rainbows, and the color pink. Except without loving ponies, rainbows, and the color pink. If your impression of me is shy and quiet, you're only half right. I'm quiet, but in no way am I shy. Get to know me and you'll find I'm a stubborn, over-opinionated, free-thinker who'll listen to you with an open mind. I look to the future instead of living in the past. So let's start a conversation, maybe it won't suck.

Sunkist Float

Rich, Creamy, and so Delicious you won't
believe it comes in a bottle.

At work, my co-worker Kayla and I made our daily CVS trip today.
If you enjoy Orange Creamsicles as much as I do, 
you'll like this Sunkist Float.
This was my first time trying it. I'm in love.
But it's one of those loves that you'll get sick of 
if you have too much of it.
Drink wisely.

Note: Kayla and Terea don't like it as much as I do.  
But as they would say, 
"They be trippin'."

Chad Clemens


Meet my best friend.
Chad says, "I feel downtrodden now."
"Why?" I reply.
"Because you won't wash me."

A Walk with Yoshi

It was 10 PM.
I wanted to take my dog, Yoshi, on a walk.
Little did I know, there was a fright in store.


Meet Yoshi.
He's vicious, but he can't protect me from everything.
Maybe serial killers and rapists, but in situations like these,
he just doesn't cut it.

I had to walk on the road at this point, because
the sidewalk around here is a scary place.
I live by a bunch of dirt and some mountains,
basically the edge of the city.

I met a couple of friends.
When I walk, I step on as many cockroaches as I can.
I'm not a bad person.
I mean, there are just so many of them.
They come back to life anyway.
I hate those big flying ones though.
Where the fuck did they come from anyways?
Since when do cockroaches fly?

Here's another big guy.
He looks badass, like the leader of a little cockroach gang.
I named him Marshall.

But Marshall and his friend were nothing compared to the
beast I ran into later.
Being on the phone with Charm, she heard my screams of terror.
I'm a severe arachnophobe.


This photograph gives me goosebumps.
Do you see it's dinner/midnight snack to the left?
It looks like a wrapped up cockroach.

My reaction to this whole situation:
Please pardon the fact that when it's 10PM
and I'm giving my dog a walk,
I don't give a shit about what I look like.

Crimes of Passion

Currently reading: 
Crimes of Passion by Howard Engel

I just got done with the first chapter, which was about Yvonne Chevallier who murdered her war-hero husband.  He was having an affair, so she bought a gun and threatened to commit suicide.  He taunted her, so she shot him 4 times.  She went downstairs and the maid asked what was happening, but she said, "Nothing."  Then she went back upstairs and shot him another time, which she claims was on accident.  

She called a police commander, and was accused of murder.  The woman her husband was having an affair with, named Jeanne Perreau, said she was not ashamed.  The jury declared her not guilty of all charges after 45 minutes of discussion.  She resumed her normal life, but was shadowed by guilt.  She flew to a penal colony in New Guinea to work out her penitence among convicts.  

Oh yeah, and I really liked this line in the introduction.  
"Here is society caught at a disadvantage, with its hair in curlers, still in its bathrobe at eleven o' clock in the morning."

WaffleS Cafe


If you happen to know my meal schedule, you'll already be aware that I'm basically a regular at WaffleS Cafe. It's at 5165 S. Fort Apache, by Tropicana. They're amazing. There are so many different waffle combinations you can have. And a waffle pizza. And a waffle sandwich. 

If you like waffles, I definitely recommend breakfast here. 

Since I'm oh so very adventurous, I'm gonna try and have as much as I can on that menu. 

So far I've had: 
Breakfast waffle sandwich,
Waffle sandwich, 
Original waffle + bananas + whipped cream,
Original waffle + m&m's + whipped cream,
Waffle pizza + pepperoni,
Pumpkin waffle + chocolate chips + whipped cream,
Chocolate waffle + sprinkles + whipped cream,
Yooni's favorite: Original waffle + strawberries + bananas + vanilla ice cream + chocolate
Jeff's favorite: Pumpkin waffle + apple pie filling + vanilla ice cream + caramel sauce

Does this not look appetizing? 


Prologue Draft

I was writing a story, and to make it short and sweet, it's about a girl who murders her best friend and gets away with it.  

Talking to my best friend 'Nark,' yesterday, I got some inspiration for what I'm gonna do with the story.  

Finally, I'll be able to get writing again, and I'll finally have something to give Miss Rachiell, my favorite teacher from 5th grade that I still keep in touch with.  I still owe her stories.  

You know that guilt you feel after you cheat on a test?  Or lie to your parents?  That never happens to me.  Nope.  I practically don't even have a conscience.  It was an ordinary day.  I went to school, ate my meals, and did my homework.  There was one thing different about this day.  On this day, I took my parents' automatic from under their mattress, brought it next door, and shot my best friend.  I stared at Carson's dead body, proud of my work.  You know that guilt you're supposed to feel after you take someone's life?  I didn't feel it then, and I still don't feel it.  Not one drop of it.  

One second is all it took, and he was gone.  
Is he looking down on me?  No.  
Is he in a new body?  No.  
Is he going to haunt me?  No.  
He's gone. 

Goodbye math tests, lectures, untied shoes, pimples, bad hair days, tight shoes, paper cuts, and scratched CDs.  
Goodbye Carson.  
I did you a favor.
