Nikki Schreiner  I choose to be happy and enjoy life. Obsessed with music and coffee. β˜† Color: thefragmentedmoon Books: ireadatmidnight Love: syncedtoeachother

A day without coffee is not a day.

Loved the weather today! So beautiful and sunny and I got everything done, smoothly. Even got to rewatch #thegreatestshowman! Love that movie so much! Only cried 3 times the first time and like 5 or 6 this time. Grr. Why am I so darn sensetive? Oh well. Today went well. Works for me. Hoping tomorrow goes well, too. Knocking out for now. Got 6 hours of sleep ahead and I'm still behind from the other night. I'm ganna have to stop for coffee on the way. #coffee #oddshot #blackcoffee #ineedmorecoffee #contrast #lookingdown #intothecup #breakfast #nickspatio #lyrics

The tree's shadow looks like veins. I like it. The sun was out most of today and Noodle just wanted to snuggle all day. #sunshine #shadow #trees #lookingdown #thesunisup #isitsummeryet #noodlebae #naturallight #throughthewindow

Did nothing today. Really. I played video games and I went to work. #thatisall.

No ones perfect, guys. We all have something that we don't like about ourselves. And the things that we don't like about ourselves are the things that other people love about us. #loveyourfaults #igiveyouthegiftofyourfaults #mrswhatsit #veins #learnfromit #someonewillloveyou

Where's home?
Is it actually at home? Or is it somewhere else entirely? Is it the woods? The beach? At work?
For me, home is where I feel safe. Whether that is on the left side of heaven, close to the water's edge, or on the road, home is where I feel like I'm ok. I used to stand in the middle of our house and, in frustration and stress, I would scream "I just want to go home!" Knowing that I already was home made me wonder where my home was. I just wanted to feel calm and secure. Now I feel like home can be anywhere. I live in a house that I enjoy living in. And when I leave my house, I take my home with me. #sunset #home #lookingup #blackandwhite #whereami #tree #silhouette #ouroldtree #myhouse #rooftop #lightanddark #ontheleft

Pics from yesterday and today! I keep doubling up. My night routine has gotten so much longer. By the time I remember to edit and post it's midnight and I'm hungry. I tell myself I'll just do it tomorrow but, by then, it's not much of a journal. Merp. #yesterdaysphotos #adventure #travelwithfriends

Went to Kzoo yesterday! An hour+ drive in the sleet and rain and I still beat Megan to #blackowlcafe! Great #coffee. Awesome place! After that was Climb Kzoo (so sore), lunch at #hopcatkalamazoo, and the mall before heading home. Got my sweet #noodlebae and my man got back into town early enough that we got to watch some Nikita! Definitely a perfect day. #yes #success #blackowl #brick #mirrors #puppycuddles

Today was work, Bones, and a lot of misc stuff mixed into my night routine. Which included a workout. #yikes #stillsorefromyesterday. Did my makeup different. I've seen a few new techniques recently so I'm trying them out. Downside = my makeup routine now takes ten to fifteen minutes for full face instead of 5. Eyeliner and mascara = 5 or less. Really want to keep it short. #yesitsaselfie #imsmiling #eyelinerwings #eyes

#coffee from #starbucks, #dcshoes, and a #touchup on my #headphonetattoo.
~
Been a great day. Started off with steak and eggs with Beth, some #drivetime, and good music. As the day moved on, I got froyo, did my touchup, watched a movie with my family, got to talk to my man for a few minutes, did my workout, and cleaned my entire room. 3 cups of coffee today. It was so beautifully gloomy outside all day! I loved it. Kept a smile on my face all day. #areyouliving #lifeisgood #cafemocha #fingertattoo #tattedandproud #lattelife #blackandwhite #blacknails #blackskinnies #musiconmyloveline

That was a good two days.
Yesterday: took a #drive up to #threerivers with my mom. Took a bunch of pictures, went to work, and stayed up wayyyyy too late because I couldn't sleep last night. The #water was so clear up there! It was just breathtaking.
Today: started with the #sunrise, breakfast, necessary shopping, pedicures, #coffee, and hair dye. Then off to work for a fairly busy night at Transit. Been home for a bit. Changed up my night routine for tonight because I feel like something's missing. I know what it is but I'm certainly not admiting it outloud. #merp. On my 3rd cup of coffee for the day. Time to call it a night. Stay happy, friends. #blackandwhite #barn #lakelife #lake #trees #countrylove #clouds #ineedmorecoffee #lookup #tuttutlookslikerain #rain #wheretonext #ontheroad

Problem: don't exactly feel like socializing.
Solution: drink more coffee.
Had a #darkhotchocolate at #topheavycoffee this morning and didn't make myself coffee until after I got home from work. I needed that. Definitely opting for coffee in the morning. #coffee #coffeefirst #nomorepeople #antisocial #canihidenow #sunlight #latteart #blackandwhite #youcandoit #dream #whitecoffeecup #latte #amarettolatte #momsfavorite

Started with Inhale by them when I got home. Gary got it stuck in my head. For some reason, after I finished that album and then finished Watershed by Opeth, this is the one that came back to me. #whataskeletalwreckofamanthisis #doyouserveapurposeorpurposlyserve #avacationisacountdown #tminusyourlifeandcounting #ivedrunktoomuchandsaidtoolittle #youreawreck #anaccident #forgetthefreakyourejustnature #becauseintheend #everythingwedoisjusteverythingwevedone #garysmusic

And that was a weekend, with my man, in Indy.
Met up with his sister and her man while we were down there and had so much fun. Walking, driving shopping, eating, and watching movies. Found an awesome clock that I want soooo much, a coffee cup that I might just have to go back for, a #totoro on the trail, a curved over tree, and 3 of the cds that I wanted. #clocks #ticktock #blackandwhite #fire #myneighbortotoro #river #monontrail #stickerandchipmunk #allsmiles #bricsindy #icecream #cdlife #linkinparkunderground #alestorm #backthroughtime #pinkfloyd #amomentarylapseofreason

Me: "I think dirt bikes would be cool."
Josh: "Dangerous. Do you want to risk getting hurt? Breaking your leg and spending months and months not able to do anything again?"
Me: "I'm not ganna let it stop me. I've risked getting hurt on things like trampolines, horses, and atvs. I want to risk something more. Like sharks, bungee jumping, motorcycles."
*in my head* Like you, you dolt. I'm risking getting hurt by you.

Me: "I'm making a latte and doing miscellaneous stuff."
Brother: "So you don't have a LATTE to do?!"

My boyfriend dared me to go a week without coffee or energy drinks. I sipped my coffee and said no. A few hours later I cracked open a kickstart. #idontdodares #nope #nothappenin #ithoughtyoulikedmesane #idgocrazy

Cuz when you gatta fix ten nails, one of them won't be perfect and it just had to be the left middle. Oh well. Hopefully this tea bag hack works because they're getting downright painful when they break.

So, I might do something crazy. This goes two ways.
1: might start a youtube channel for my own little vlogs and stuff. (Thoughts? Content? Etc.?)
2: might change my hair to a grey ombre. #somebodypleasesayyes I've been thinking about either that or a hidden galaxy and I think I'm leaning on the ombre team a little bit more. And I'm doing it between now and my birthday in June. (Thoughts? Experiences? Please say yes?)

I was so close to the beach today and didn't get to walk down. I wanted to, though. #beach #iwanttogoswimming #stjoemi #silverbeach #lakelife #lakemichigan

New phone case showed up today! More than a month early, too! I don't need a phone case to do much. Mostly, just hold my leaf and protect the edges. Broke a few nails after I got home. But, oh well. Picture still worked. #havetocrackafeweggstomakeanomelet #ididntmakeanomelet #iatespaghetti #didyoufollowthat #holdmyleaf #phonecase #linkinpark #represent

Please tell me I'm not the only #nightowl with nothing to do right now. Well. One thing to do. But it won't take long to do that in the morning before I leave. I have too much energy. I wonder if it's #psychosematic. I don't understand my dream and I fear my nightmare. I want to sleep but I'd rather be awake. #iwanttounderstand #idonthavetheanswers #stayingawake #ineedanightlife #nightlife #whatdoidonow #timedoeslikeme
