Friday Flashback

One morning my older sister was driving us to school. At the time she was driving her black 98 VW Bug. We were about half way to school, when we heard this CluNK, ClunK, cLUnK. We noted that is clUNked faster as we sped up and ClunKed slower when we slowed down. At home she parked in a temporary garage (the tent ones you can by at Walmart) and it was winter. Late as usual for school... we kept driving. We thought maybe we were dragging a sled becuase we kept them in the back of that little car port. We went as far to think that maybe we were even dragging the cat.

I guess when we finally got to school we had forgotten becuase we were in a rush... When We got out that afternoon... We realized she had a flat. D'OH.

I've Got a Case of the Deadlines

This is our last week of classes before exam week. I have a huge paper due tomorrow that I have only somewhat started on and it is now 12:20am. I'm really really praying that those kids sleep a lot tomorrow because I have some MAJOR work to do on that paper! I don't feel comfortable using their computer yet so I will attempt to bring my laptop... I guess it's better that way... I can't get online. Speaking of online. I'm swearing off AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) for the rest of the week, as well as limiting my Facebook and Myspace usage. Its just gone overboard. I'm addicted and its stupid. Blogging is a different story. I feel that it is a good outlet. I figure a little reading and writing can't do any harm (though I should be writing that paper).

I have continued with the working out. I managed to do 10 continuous minutes on the elliptical. Which to me is amazing. I think I started out in the beginning at 2 minutes. I also did some fast paced walking on incline and some bike. My stomach is way to sore to start back on anytime soon... though it needs the most attention. It feels so good to work out... and normally I dread it. Tonight I was in such a funk (depressed and cranky) and the work out seemed to really help. I do think I enjoy late night work outs better... plus I can watch Jay Leno while I exercise... so it makes the time pass.

Breakfast. I usually never was a breakfast person. but with waking up SO early and a semi long drive to work, I just GOT to have it. I never liked the thought of drinking yogurt... but let me tell you - Youplait Light Smoothies are so darn good. They come in peach (my fav) and strawberry. I don't really know if they are good for me or not... but I don't care too much, because it is really the only dairy I get. I'm not a milk person OR a cheese person.

So those of you that know something about nutrition it has:

Something Must Be Wrong with Me.

I've worked out 4 times in the last 3 days! I'm a woman on a mission. The Police Academy begins in January with a physical test in October I don't want to be the slowest one. Good news though... I've lost about 10 pounds in the last 2 and a half weeks. Where I lost it though, I have no idea. I don't feel or look any different.

I don't only want to get in shape for the police academy though... I have a new years bet with my mother that ends in December. I HAVE to win $..........

Now I just have to start eating better.............

Cars on Campus

As the quarter comes to an end these next few weeks, I hope to bring to you a little bit of what I get to see walking to class. There are about 3 really unique cars I see to and from class (which includes a garage shortcut).

It is memorial day weekend, so I'm guessing I couldn't find the other 2 becuase they are home for the holiday... So I will share todays find with you.


I wonder what goes through your mind when you decide to do this to your car. Before the paint this car didn't see to be too bad... heck I've owned worse. Though the owner seems to be very liberal, I still like the message. When see a car like this I imagine what the driver looks like... so here are some of my visions curtosy of google image search:


P.S. If this is your car I had no idea and am sorry! But it's so cool!

Wreck This Journal

I really like the blog The Wish Jar. I Like it for it's out of the box creativity. The author of this blog has come up with a Wreck This Journal idea That I have absolutely fallen in LOVE with. I'm a creative person so I think I will enjoy this activity. You could use any journal but I like the blog and the idea so much that I decided to support it by pre-ordering a book here. I am so excited for it to come and when it does I want to throw it in a puddle or run over it with my car!! I cannot wait!

Here are some pictures from flickr of personal Wreck Journals.

Here is some info on "how" to wreck a journal.

Creative destruction is a term that refers to the act of making a physical change to an object, blank page or space. It is based on the premise that if you alter an object in some way, you are in fact participating in a creative experience (regardless of the outcome). The intent of creative destruction is to move beyond aesthetic judgements of whether a mark/alteration is good or bad, but instead to allow the mark to exist as documentation of a physical experience or as kind of expression. While the term “destruction” has historically had a negative connotation, in this context it is used to imply simply “alteration”.

I havent even see the movie.

Your Love Life is Like The Princess Bride
"Since the invention of the kiss, there have only been five kisses that were rated the most passionate, the most pure. This one left them all behind."
For you, love is like a fairy tale - albeit a fairly twisted one.You believe romance is all about loyalty, fate, and a good big of goofy fun.
Your love style: Idealistic yet quirky
Your Hollywood Ending Will Be: Perfectly romantic
What Movie Is Your Love Life Like?


Thanks for the idea Skittles.

Don't be Jelly-ous

I bought some jellies! I remember these from when I was a kid. They were cool so I'd wear them even though they gave me blisters and made me bleed. Anyone else have a pair?


I regret not buying the pink ones though... maybe I will have to make another trip to the store ;-) (that is if these don't hurt my feet)

I also purchased some other cute shoes...

HELL

I got this in an e-mail. I thought is was great... so I decided to share. Please read.

As the end of the quarter draws near, I'd like to take a minute to pass along a humorous story for those dreading final exams. Please take no offense, it's purely for your enjoyment....

The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington
chemistry mid term. The answer by one student was so "profound" that the
professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course,
why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well :

Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs
heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas
cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant. One
student, however, wrote the following:

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need
to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which
they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to
Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many
souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in
the world today. Most of these religions state that if you are not a member
of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of
these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we
can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they
are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.
Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law
states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the
same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:

1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter
Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell
breaks loose...........

2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in
Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.
So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year
that, "It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you," and take into
account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number two must be
true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen
over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it
follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore,
extinct......leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine
being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting "Oh my God."


THIS STUDENT RECEIVED AN A+.

Friday Flashback (A Day Early)

On any warm summer evening.... My sisters and I would gulp down our dinner and as quickly as possible try to figure out who was going to play "night games," when, and where. We'd run to our rooms and find some dark colored clothes to put on. Then we'd douse ourselves in bug spray and run outside. All the neighborhood kids often ended up in our yard. If it was still light out we'd play kick ball, spud, 500, or tag(Freeze, TV, and Regular). As soon as darkness hit we'd pull out the flashlights and begin a game of flashlight tag, capture the flag, sardines, ghost in the graveyard or kick the can. We'd stay out until about 11 or so, head off to bed and do it again the next night.

I miss those days!

I was tagged by Earl!

Nearest book near me: Green Grass Grace by Shawn McBride
Content of the third paragraph on page 128:
This is all Dialog so... it's not really a "Paragraph"

"Yeah, I'm OK," she says. "Same old bullshit with your dad."


I have a bookmark in this book on page 19. That is as far as I got last summer. I have so many books I want to read this summer! Hopefully I will actually get to it this time!

Babysitting

I do my fair share of babysitting. There is one particular lady that I help out here and there after my normal babysitting job or work. Her husband is out of town a lot and I come over around 5 or 6. I usually stay until around 8/8:30. Initially I took this babysitting job becuase I figured "Hey it's money." They told me that she (the mom) would be home while I was there, but she just needed "a little help with Ava." I figured that I would be watching Ava while her mom did laundry, cleaned or did some other kind of "work." Well I was wrong. They basically just pay me to be there. It is weird. Aparently the mother has been battling some depression which I totally understand and am GLAD I can help... but I just stand there. WE take Ava outside. WE go for a walk with Ava. WE sit and watch Ava watch TV.

It just weirds me out a little. I was talking with my own mother... we figure that she is just lonely or possibly afraid of herself??? SHE asks me to come over, it's not like her husband calls me. It makes it hard for me too, she doesn't discipline the child or have any rules (a 2 year old) and I'm so used to being around kids and telling them "no you can't have a cookie", "sit down and eat", or "no sorry you cannot do that!"... you can't exactly do that while the mom is right there and letting her child walk all over her. haha. It is just WEIRD!

I was talking with the lady I babysit for regularly, who lives on the same street... You'd think all women would have it... but some people just don't have the "Mommy Gene" (I know that is really weird for me to say as a 22 year old college student)

The thing that sucks the most. They are moving becuase of her husbands job. They have family here.... a SUPPORT SYSTEM... and they are moving! Yikes. Wish them well... and keep this woman in your thoughts (and prayers if you do that sort of thing)!!

Proud to be an American

1. Only in America......can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

2. Only in America......are there handicap parking places in front of a skating rink.

3. Only in America......do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

4. Only in America......do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke.

5. Only in America......do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.

6. Only in America......do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

7. Only in America......do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place.

8. Only in America......do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

9. Only in America......do we use the word 'politics' to describe the process so well: 'Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'

10. Only in America......do they have drive-up ATM's with Braille lettering.

Friday Flashback

Mother May I?

This was a game that we played as kids, and I'm sure many of you did as well. My memory is playing it with my two sisters in the living room.

Who ever was the "Mother" would stand on the fireplace, while the other two of use "children" were on the other side of the room by which we called "The Pass-through". The two children would take turns asking "Mother may I, take' x' giant/regular/baby steps forward/backward?" "Mother" would reply with either a "yes," or a "No you may not, you make take ' x' giant/regular/baby steps forward/backward." Whoever made it across the room and touched mother first would win. It was totally a game of favorites, but fun nonetheless. Boy did we get creative. I remember taking somersaults, cartwheels and airplanes forward and backward.

7 random things about Meme

I have been tagged me for this meme by "Green Eyed Girl". Here are 7 random things about me:

  1. I hate real cheese. I will eat fake cheese (cheese in a can, cheese on cheese crackers, and nachos and cheese.) Not the real stuff.
  2. I am a Coca-Cola addict. Mostly cherry coke. Yum.
  3. Photography is something I like to do, but not something I every have time for or money for.
  4. I have never broken a bone. Just cracked some ribs.
  5. I love sour sour SOUR candy.
  6. I hardly ever drink milk. I did a report on it freshman year of high school and have stayed away from it ever since... But I will have milk in my cereal or use it to dunk Oreos.
  7. I love listening to music in my car. However, I very rarely make it through a whole song be for I want to (and do) change it.
I tag you.

Go Fug Yourself


Click the picture and go visit one of the blogs I enjoy reading. Basically they make fun of the stupid things people wear. I love it.

A Slice of Life

Things have been pretty busy lately. School and work 24/7.

Last weekend I worked a 10 hour shift on Saturday AND Sunday at the golf course. The weather was great and we were pretty busy. The the 10 hour shifts suck, but it is money.. so I guess I can't complain too much. I have booked a flight for Arizona to see my mother this summer. We will be having a family reunion while I'm there... and then I'll be sticking around a little longer. After all it costs around 350 to get there - I might as well stretch it out (Plus my mom has a POOL).

Friday will be my last week with the lady I babysit for. She runs an in home childcare and the parents of one of the kids she decided to stop watching offered me a job. She just had a baby so I will be watching a 3 year old boy and a 1 month old boy. I cannot wait. More money and less kids. I am sad to be leaving though, I like the lady I work for a lot and love all the little kiddos. I cried when I gave my two weeks notice. I just told her I will be working as an RA more down here, so I won't have time to work for her... which is true... sort of... but I didn't want to cause unnecessary drama by telling her who else I was going to work for. The only thing that sucks is that my new job is still in the same area as my old one. Traffic sucks.

Thats it for now.

PS I get my hair cut/done tomorrow... its one of the best things to do/get done :-D
AND.... ONE month until school is out.

Do U-scan?

U - Scan


No fucking thank you - Unless you are giving me some kind of discount for doing your shitty ass job . (I USED to be a cashier, I quit. I do not want to continue doing the job.) Dear Kroger, Dear Meijer.... it is NOT cool to ONLY leave your U-scan Isles open. I hate you.

No Class!

We waited for 20 minutes, and then left.

Hello Class,

Through a serious of unfortunate events, I ended up in the wrong classroom (716) with two others students tonight. After about 35 minutes I realized that I was in the wrong classroom. I went up stairs but all of you had already left (which I completely understand).

In lieu of this odd event, I am going to push everything back (including the due date of your project). I will work on revamping the schedule for the rest of the quarter tonight and email it to you tomorrow.

You will all receive attendance points for tonight's class. Also, the assignment that was due tonight will now be due next week.

I am very sorry for any inconvenience that this has caused anyone. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

I hope that you all have a wonderful evening off!

Sincerely,
R.S.

I would never admit that I was on the wrong floor. hahahaha.

Ain't No Mountain High Enough

What does your drawing say about YOU?

You tend to pursue many different activities simultaneously. When misfortune does happen, it doesn't actually dishearten you all that much.
You are a thoughtful and cautious person. You like to think about your method, seeking to pursue your goal in the most effective way.
You are creative, mentally active and industrious.
You have a sunny, cheerful disposition.

Thanks for the Idea Skittles!

I'm no Beauty Queen

Occasionally I have to get up for the 4:30AM lockout as a part of my On-Call Duty as a Community Assistant. I would say it sucks, but I do very little for free rent -so i cannot complain.

Now I'm not one that typically gets all dressed up or fancy for any occasion .... so you can imagine what I look like at 4:30 AM. It's a little like this:

I've Been Inspired

I've been Inspired by Chris who runs Blog-Op to rejuvenate my links. I love to give my link love in creative ways... Today I have decided to use paint. Let me mention that paint is horrible and I have no mouse stability whatsoever. so these pictures are the absolute best I could do... Click on the pictures to visit the blogs I like to visit. I hope I didn't miss any and put the right links to the right pics :-D
