Good weekend for me!

Well this past weekend was pretty good for me. On Saturday I went to the casino with my mom and came home with an extra $70.00 in my pocket! So that was pretty cool! That got set aside and I'm going to put it towards my student loan. Then I did my tax return and found out I'm going to get over $1000.00 back!! This is way more than I thought I would get so I am going to think carefully about what to do with it...I know I want to put lots towards my student loan but I am also contemplating buying a new flat iron ( a SUPER good one), my favourite perfume (Pure Poison by CHristian Dior), and I'm also thinking about getting a massage and maybe possibly going to Ikea. Well thats quite a few ideas so I don't think I will do all those, but we'll see.

Then today was not such a good day. After my great weekend I found out my little sister got a job and is now making more than me. Im not sure how much more but my mom said its a lot and I said don't tell me. This is absolutely humiliating. I feel like everything they tell you when you're a kid is a big lie...try hard in school, get good grades, go to college and you're set. Well I did all of that and it hasn't gotten me anywhere except in debt. Infact most of my friends from high school who didnt bother with studying, didn't care about their grades, and didn't go to college or dropped out of college are the ones making good money.
Now i personally really enjoy my job, I feel like I finally found something that I enjoy where I feel fulfilled, like I do something that matters and helps people, and here I am still living with my parents because I make just over minimum wage. Incase you were wondering, i work in a pharmacy. I feel like i work my ass off for nothing. I do way more than my job description, and I get paid like i do nothing. I can't even live on my own right now because its pretty much impossible. Something needs to change. I am going to talk to my boss, like really sit down with her and explain why I think I deserve a raise. And if that doesnt work then I am finding a new job. Which would really suck if i had to do that because I honestly love the team of women I work with....oh well...thats life i guess eh? anyways thats enough of my ranting...

I finished the book I was writing about, "Nineteen Minutes", its pretty good but I did not like the ending at all. But I would still suggest it to anyone who wants a good read and I will still be looking to read other books by this author.
On another good note, I made some really good chicken this weekend! I got the recipe from
Here is the recipe:

Garlic Chicken with Parmesan

1/2 cup butter
4 cloves chopped garlic
3-4 boneless skinless cihcken breasts
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Melt some butter and and add the chopped garlic to it. Lay the chicken breasts in a single layer in a baking dish. Cover them with grated Parmesan cheese and pat it down a bit, then pour the butter and garlic over them.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or so, until done.

Now, I dont know if the garlic was supposed to like melt into the butter or not, but it didn't. Lol so it was cheesy chicken with little chunks of garlic on top. I think you could probably get a similar result by maybe using garlic powder, or just melting garlic butter? Anyways it was still really good either way!! I suggest trying it! Anyways thats all for today, hope everyone had a great weekend!
