Yes it`s the apocalypse alright. I always thought I`d have a hand in it. - Mood:Good
Saturday March 24 200712:28:53 PM |
I'm trying so hard to waste time before starting on life. Though I know that I need to start on it soon. It's just so nice to have a lazy start to the day. Wake up, chill out, watch tv, eat some bacon, play on youthink, etc.

I don't have MUCH to do today, beyond straightening and organizing my room, doing lesson plans for next week, going to the library to return books and get new ones, and going to blockbuster to get Borat. Oh, and take some online course and fill out my accreditation paperwork for my class. Ok, on second thought I do have a bit to do today. I should probably start on it soon. But I'll wait until I've exhausted my time-wasting capacities first.

Any suggestions for books to get?

When was the last time you wished upon a star? - Mood:Good
Thursday March 22 200711:36:30 PM |
Star light
Star bright
First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have this wish I wish tonight

I used to wish on the first star of the evening all the time. Since I've grown up, I've either stopped paying attention to stars or stopped wishing things. Either way it's silly.

I started again recently and I'm going to keep it up.

Jiminy Cricket is always going on about wishes and how "they're shining deep down inside of you...because that my friends is where the magic lives..."

So, when was your last star wishing?

My life is crazier than I`d like. - Mood:Good
Wednesday March 21 200710:40:44 PM |
I met Putterer and Politigal last night. My second youthink meetup to date. We met at a dueling pianos bar at one of the Disney resorts. I don't know about them, but I certainly had a swell time.

I may have mentioned this in a thread or two before, signature on The Pants is the best. I almost signed the crotch, but it seemed inappropriate on a first meeting. Instead I signed right at the right pocket. And at Putterer's suggestion I turned the two O's in spoonerism into a mickey head.

Mickey Mouse also signed The Pants.

In other news, work stresses me out less lately than it used to. I've gotten my patience back, through the art of getting regularly f*cked up after work. It's truly a blessing.

I am sick of working 7 days a week and can't wait until that craziness ceases. Maybe then I won't have to turn to intoxication for my woes.

Is it fair - Mood:Good
Tuesday March 20 20076:23:27 PM |
to raise children in an English-speaking country and to never speak English in your home?

I have three kids at school who come from families that do not speak English at home at all. Which means, basically, I have to start with them from scratch. And frankly, I don't think it's fair to them to be put into an English-speaking school with English-speaking students and teachers, without knowing any English.

I am irked. Perhaps even perturbed.

But, tonight I'm meeting Putterer, and you're not!

I'm at my apartment right now. First time here alone since Dave died. It's harder than I thought it would be.

I went into his room and saw virtually all of his things gone. And the stain on the carpet.

I'm here today to finish James's valentine's gift and pack my things (we're moving out).

But wow. This is much more difficult than I anticipated. I feel paralyzed, and I don't know why.

Do me a favor, please. Check out my profile and see if you see black background on the left (where it should be the same light blue as is on the rest of the profile). And respond and let me know. Thanks.

Also, I got $1.87 in tips yesterday! And today starts my 8 day vacation!! boyfriend flies into Orlando tonight at 11-ish. And I have the whole week off to spend with him. And I'm a tad bit thrilled about this.

Life is one crazy bitch sometimes - Mood:Overwhelmed
Monday March 05 200711:49:43 PM |
My roommate passed away nearly two weeks ago. I wasn't able to go to the funeral because it was in WI. But his parents are in town to get his things. I met them today and I'm SO glad I did. I got the closure I needed. I've had lots of support from friends and family, but I needed to talk about him with someone who was missing him too. I feel so bad for his parents (no parent should bury their child), but they're taking it rather well. They're very religious and I think their peace with God makes accepting this a little bit easier.

I just finished a stint of cat sitting. I'm not a cat person by any means, but I was recommended by someone I once dogsat for. The guy paid me $100 for one week of cat feeding and litter scooping! I think one of his cats is my soul-animal-mate. He's always all up on me when I come over.

I remember when... - Mood:Spent
Friday March 02 200712:00:32 AM |
(I can write two journals back to back because I haven't written one in a while and I have sh*t saved up to say!)

That said, I remember when...

Gas was less than a dollar a gallon
Movie tickets were 5-6 dollars
Milk didn't cost more than 3 dollars a gallon
Pay phones cost a quarter
Stamps were 32 cents
2 liters of soda were 99 cents NOT on sale

What is the world coming to?! Madness, I tell you. Sheer unable to be afforded by my pathetic paycheck MADNESS. Seriously, I know milk does a body good but it does my wallet bad! Is there a cow shortage or something?!

Seriously. This has bugged me my ENTIRE LIFE. I have to know. Why do people throw shoes up there? Is it to pwn someone in the best possible way? F*ck you, douchebag! Imma throw your shoes up really high. You will be able to see them but not access them. And if you try, you could be electrocuted.

I'm trying to determine why WSU wouldn't let me input a decimal point in my writing score. And why they have four boxes but I only have 3 scores.

And whether or not my scores are good. The percentile range is not quite as good as I've done on other standardized tests (I don't think...)

Please tell me how many scores you have, what their format is, and what a good score is!

PLEASE. And thank you.

Today I went through one of the hardest things ever - Mood:Bad
Wednesday February 21 200711:13:45 PM |
I don't want to get into too much detail, simply because it is gruesome and horrific and bad enough that I had to see it, I found my 23 year old roommate dead. He had been dead for quite some time when we (my other roommate and I) found him.

We called 911. They instructed us to give CPR to his lifeless body until the paramedics arrived.

I am trying to cope with the loss, as well as the images burned in my mind. It was my first time seeing a dead body, and frankly, I'm most overwhelmed by the lack of dignity death brought him.

I'm very sad. And a little bit lost.

Third Wheel Update - Mood:Good
Saturday February 17 200711:50:10 PM |
So...I went to Universal today, as planned, with the friend I'd invited (who I'd given a comp ticket to).

A third wheel, who'd invited himself the night before, was also there. And, it turns out, invited a FOURTH person along. Of course, he had no way of getting FOURTH person in for free, and then was astonished that the cost to get into both parks was more than $40. Now, as he works at Disney, I find it highly unlikely that he didn't know that ticket prices would be at least 55 bucks or better. For the record, I think it's 62.

Anyway, he told this girl it would be about 35 (according to her account, anyway).

Who invites themselves to things?! - Mood:Good
Friday February 16 200711:27:28 PM |
So...I'm going to Universal tomorrow with a friend. A mutual friend of ours apparently found out we were going and decided to invite himself. He called me and told me to meet them there at 9 AM.

Which, you may know, is a bit early for my day off. I mean, holy sh*t, I get a day off once in a blue moon. I really like to enjoy the sleeping in portion. Especially when I stay up late at night talking to my boyfriend who lives 3 hours behind and can only talk during "nights" due to his ridiculous cellular phone.

And he justifies it by saying that he has to work at 4. Then, it turns out, he calls up a manager at work (he's a friend from work) and convinces her to let him come in two hours later since they are overstaffed already. But calls me back (after my protesting at 9:00 to say I should meet him at 9:45).

Am I right to be irritated by this? I talked to the person I originally invited who claims not to have invited third wheel, and told 3rd wheel to call m

On a hot summer night would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses? - Mood:Sexy
Friday February 16 200712:34:05 PM |
I should be in sexy moods more often.

You know what this calls for? A sexy party!

I'm sooo excited (I just can't hide it). I have a three day weekend! I mean, I know this isn't a big deal, as MOST Americans have this already, what with presidents day and all, BUT it is very unusual for me. And I couldn't be more thrilled.

I have today off, then tomorrow, then Sunday! My plans are to buy a digital camera with the tax refund I got today! (yay for the IRS!) And to take care of some biznazz.

Tomorrow I am going to go play at Universal all day.

And the next day I hope to spend baked if I can locate some baking supplies.

For Valentine's Day, I went out on a date with my boyfriend's mom and aunt. My boyfriend being in a different timezone, that is. It sounds kind of lame to say, but I had a good time with them. I really like his mom, and she really likes me, which is a total first for me and relationships.

So altogether, my life situation gets a big

Sap Central Station - Mood:Good
Sunday February 11 200711:28:09 PM |
Location: My room

I am currently in the process of making my boyfriend's Valentine's gift. I was going to make him a picture frame with puzzle pieces on it that says "You complete me". So at the craft store they had these puzzle cards that you can draw on and whatnot (just 16 piece puzzles, little ones to fit in envelops), so I decided to make him a puzzle too.

The puzzle has a big heart in the middle that says Happy Valentine's Day and around it are quotes about love and friendship that mean something to me.

And I'm waiting on the paint to dry on the picture frame so I can write on the letters. I have to get a glue gun tomorrow to attach the puzzle pieces (painted aqua blue and green). The picture frame itself is painted deep blue.

I also want to include something sexy. If I don't get any better suggestions, I'm going with a book of sexy pictures. But that requires buying a camera with a timer, because I have nobody to take them. Any sexy suggestions

Eye Candy, come hither!!! - Mood:Good
Saturday February 10 20071:23:42 PM |
There aren't enough hot men on television these days. Lots of hot ladies. Why is this? Don't women deserve eye candy too?! (And gay men, for that matter, dammit!!)

Also, I'm being a journal whore. Get over it. Nobody responded on my first try (well, one person did), so I get to try again.

I'm really excited that Obama has announced his run for president. I'm going to get involved in his campaign, because he excites me. Maybe it's just his eloquence, but there's something about him that sceams "presidential". (I don't care how fresh he is, I find it refreshing)

Can anyone tell me how to fix my profile so that the left isn't black?

And how are you today, dear?
(very well I thank you, run away, run away)

Pretty in pink? - Mood:Good
Saturday February 10 200712:54:35 PM |
I haven't watched it in a while. But it's on lifetime right now, and as I called in to work, I've been wasting time watching it. I haven't had a "slow morning" in SUCH a long time. I'd forgotten how glorious it was to waste the first three hours of a day doing practically nothing.

At any rate, to get to the point, I just watched the montage where she puts together her dress. There's cutting, sewing, pulling, attaching, etc. And then you see her come down in her dress. It's rather disappointing. The dress is kind of...ehnh. Unsexy and not that pretty, really. I mean, Molly Ringwald is pretty, but the dress itself makes me cringe.

Tonight I'm going to stay at my boyfriend's (mom's) house. He won't be there. Neither will she. I'm going over to babysit their dogs. I'm looking forward to sleeping in a bed and hanging out with the doggies again.

I might live with those doggies next year! (And my boyfriend) If I get into WASU that is.

The No A**Hole Rewards Program - Mood:
Friday February 09 20079:09:31 PM |
Spread the word, ladies and gentleman.

I am ready to revolutionize the world.

I have personally practiced the no a**hole rewards program for two years now.

It is a simple program. All you do is NOT reward people who are non-nice individuals.

The most important step is to stop sleeping with people who are non-nice individuals. Even if they're not non-nice individuals to you, being non-nice individuals negates them from getting sex! If everyone stops sleeping with a**holes, they will be forced to change their ways.

Otherwise, just avoid giving them any sort of reward/benefit.

You CAN make a difference.

(I also invite you to join the "don't-sleep-with-republicans" related program)

What`s wrong with that roach? - Mood:Good
Friday February 09 20078:42:23 PM |
One of my students asks me ALL the time... "What's wrong with _____?" and 9 times out of 10, there's nothing wrong with ______. It's just been presented in a way he is unfamiliar with.

I think it's a pretty cute quirk, that I'm sure will pass in no time. But today he asked me both "What's wrong with that roach?" when we saw a beetle crawling on the playground equipment outside and "What's wrong with me?" when he saw a picture of himself on the wall with a surprised look on his face.

I had to explain to the kids that we should leave the beetle alone because he lived outside and we needed to share his home with him. It was a nice little learning experience.

But our time outside was cut short when I had to take the class in after a child pooped their pants.

Those are the big decisions I make. While my friends make big decisions regarding the way their companies run their businesses, I make the decision to cut playtime short to change s

Littering and... my snot is green again!!! - Mood:Spent
Thursday February 08 200711:04:30 PM |
Having just taken a CPR/first aid course, I’m now fully prepared for the worst. And while I really hope I never have to use my newly acquired skills, a part of me hopes otherwise. A part of me wants to break them out and be a hero. This same part of me doesn’t recognize the fact that the “skills” I learned are not effective at saving lives 100% of the time.

I re-learned CPR, which has changed since last I learned it. I also learned how to operate an automatic defibrillator, how to stop bleeding, what to do in the event of shock, how to treat a burn, how to save someone from choking, among other things. Lots of handy tidbits for the real world.

I took the class for my job at the daycare, but I feel like if I ever use them, it will be at my other job, the roller-coaster, where I anticipate more people are likely to lose consciousness and/or have heart attacks.

Where would you be without the internet? - Mood:Good
Thursday February 01 20078:19:39 PM |
I've got to get dinner but I don't know what. I could get some Chipotle take-out, but I might want to cook. Any suggestions? I'm in the mood for something fantastic.

Also, I'm irritated that I had to delete my last journal for an image that bypassed the swear filter. I mean, it's my own fault for not checking, but I was just going through these webcomics I liked and posting my favorites. It's just indicative of the fact that I don't consider sh*t to be a bad word. It's the word I most often forget to asterisk too.

So, to the point at hand, here's where I'd be-

1. I'd be more productive. I'd study much more
2. I'd socialize more (perhaps drink and smoke more too)
3. I'd read more (both as part of my studying in #1 and for fun)
4. Research would be a pain in the ass again.
5. I'd talk on the phone more and send mail more often.
6. I'd be lost all the time. The best gift the internet has given me is directions to anywhere.
