Homecoming... [Oct. 22nd, 2007|01:10 pm]

[mood |apatheticeeeehhh]

I had a good time. I didn't do much that was really homecoming related and I missed seeing more than half of the people I wanted to see. Sorry guys, as most of you are on the list of people I missed seeing.

I'm a jerk.

I did get to go back to the Nature Center and help out with their Autumn Celebration which was pretty cool. I always liked that place and kinda wish I still worked there.  Yes I thought I wanted to be done with environmental education, but I think that was a dumb idea. I think I should have stayed. I would have made less money, but I know i would have been happier. I guess this way I have plenty of motivation to go back to school sooner, so it probably all works out.

Love and miss you all. Hope to see many of you in two weekends for laura salo awesome!

Ok, so I'm pretty sure it's national news, and there's people who will probably do a much better job of talking about it than I do but I just wanted to share my thought on this video and story about the bartender being beaten up by an off-duty police officer.

First I would like to point out that I am certainly a product of growing up smack in the middle of third-wave feminism. I learned at an early age to watch my surroundings and learned even more as a grew up, prop your hotel door and check to make sure there's no one in the room, carry your keys like a weapon after dark, never let your drunk friend go home with a cute random guy especially if no one can vouch for him. We've all been taught to avoid being a victim in so many ways.

The girl in the video is honestly just doing her job, trying to difuse an argument between two patrons and she gets beaten on. Now granted, she does get up and walk away, quite quickly, so she probably wasn't hurt that badly, but still it's different to know that it happens and to see it happen. I know that there are women who need emergency medical attention after encounters like this, so I guess she was lucky that people eventually said something about it and came to her defense. I also know that had she been a man the result would have been the same, this guy was going to beat on whoever looked at him funny. It just brings home the idea that I'm smaller than so many people out there, and so many of those people I've never met and can't vouch for their sanity.

It really upsets me, and makes me want to go to Tae Kwon Do class as quickly as I possibly can!

My Interview [Jan. 16th, 2007|09:50 pm]

So I went to my interview today, and it didn't suck. In fact I think I did very well. Unfortunately, I'm not sure the job is what I want or need, so that kinda sucks. But I have another interview next week, and hopefully will be recieving a phonecall about another interview by the end of this week. So that's all good news I guess... yay!

Um, that's pretty much it I think.

'Night!

Dude, my roomate totally got engaged tonight. And since we've lived together for four years and she's basically my best friend, I have to be her maid of honor.


I am totally not mature enough for this shit... I don't wanna grow up, or see my friends doing grown up things... booo


although I am very happy for her, so YAY MELISSA & CHUCK!

I guess for the most part I just totally wasn't expecting it at all even though I should have been. And since Justine just got engaged on tuesday, I'm feeling a little spun. These are not just people i used to know doing this shit, its my friends and co-workers. Its just wierd to me.

But whatever, like I said, yay melissa. And if anyone sees a book called how to be the best Maid of Honor when your broke ad fuck... buy it for me :)

"I get a little warm in my heart when I think of winter" [Jul. 13th, 2005|09:16 am]

[music |Strangely... "Winter"... Tori Amos]

I just had an online quizy thing tell me this:

"While you may seem bright on the outside, your insides have a distinct angst flavor."

I wonder what it is that an angst flavor would taste like?

Yay for getting dirty and being outside! [Jul. 9th, 2005|10:58 am]

I had the most amazing day yesterday!! I got to work at 8:15 and then went clamming for something like 4 hours including driving time and stuff. We found 9 different species, and it was just really cool, and I got very very dirty... YAY! Then I came back to the nature center and did some setting up stuff for the bat program we were going to do. Then I got tasty mexican dinner, and then we did bats! WE caught this really cute red bat and got to pet it and band it and stuff, and really it was just great. I wish I could have days like that EVERY DAY!! Yay clams and bats!

After we cleaned stuff up we also just hung out here for a while and everyone else drank beer. We sat on the stage and giggled a lot, and then after angela and people left jason taught me how to drive the mule and I drove him out to the remote sight se he would have time to sober up before driving home. We ended up leaving at like 1 in the morning, but it was good fun, and now I can drive the mule. YAY BREKKE!

Today I have work pretty much all day. Here until 3, and I have a work meeting at Kappa, and then I work at Kappa tonight like always. I'm going to be one tired brekke:)


Look I'm leaving you a present, a present of a stupid quizy thing I stole from Emily BellCollapse )

~Learned how one would go about hiring a dominatrix

~Slept in my car

~Convinced my Poly Sci teacher that not only was a take home test a good idea, but that a take home final would give us way more time for our papers

~Bought massage lotion

~Went grocery shopping for myself, by myself, and managed to buy all the food I will need for the rest of the week, including today and sunday, for $26


And a whole bunch of other random stuff, but now I am sick of typing.

God this is a little out of hand, but yeah so this is me with my new journal... [Mar. 5th, 2004|01:39 am]

[mood |bouncybouncy]

I am not quite sure why I decided to do this, maybe because everyone who has livejournal always has cooler looking journals than me... although that might just be because I am LAZY. But never-the-less here I am... I am linking them so that everything on my ujournal will go here, but not everything from here will go on my ujournal. So if you have this one... feel special:)

G'night

and happy birthday weekend to ann and emily:)
