I really hate it when people surprise me.

And then there's the people who don't know how to throw away their Daily. The Daily is the campus paper, and most likely its in every building in campus. Well, it seems, that all students (yes, I know, not all students do this), pick up a paper, read it, and then throw it on the floor and go about their business, or they leave it on the table/desk/whatever. And then they walk away. Because obviously their mother works at the university. I've had that problem at the library as well, people leave lights on (on the separate carrels where student sit and do homework), and leave their chairs out. Now, I'm not gonna complain about them leaving books, out, cause I'm paid to put them away, and we'd rather they did this, cause most don't put them away right.
And, I know I've mentioned this before but I love Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays on campus. Tuesdays and Thursdays, Airforce, and Navy have to dress in uniforms, and Wednesdays, Army has to dress in uniform. I never get tired of seeing those. Unfortunately I don't have any of those unis in my classes. Sigh.
Another thing, see if I get any commentary on this, do guys worry about how they look? Cause you know they generally look pretty damn good in their jeans and shirts. I was watching guys yesterday during my break, and I'm always trying to watch people in my classes (yes, I love watching people), and we all know my 9AM class instructor is hott.
And speaking of my 9AM class, there's this one guy that has shown up twice to the class, the first day and today. I've had this guy in one of my classes last semester, he plays football (which is no excuse, cause there's 2 other football players in this class, and they've been there everyday), and he'd always show up late to that class as well. He's shown up this semester at 9:30, class is 30 minutes over with 20 minutes left, why the hell even bother to come? Especially since he's already missed a quiz and a couple attendance days. I hate it when some people just half ass classes, and then because they're late the last seat is in the front of the room and so they disrupt the whole class to get to that seat.
Why are there so many good looking guys on this campus and I'm still single? I'm getting real sick of being single. Is there something wrong with me?

I was me, later in life, and I found a man I liked, and of course did those fun things that couples do, and then I was having an argument with him, and he left and then the door opened, and suddenly I was reading about this chick that had been kidnapped and it had been so long without this person (the me of before) that people had moved on with their lives, and it ended that this person, girl, was saying that she hoped she could reach them somehow. Very wierd, but I could see myself lying on a couch and reading this story that was really about me. And then I woke up very suddenly, very freaked out, and very scared. I remember thinking I was gonna be kidnapped like the me in the dream, and I remember lying there and looking all over my room, I was so freaked, I even unplugged my cell phone and stuck it in bed with me, as if it would really happen. I remember lying there, I have no idea how long, and just staring into the darkness.

I really enjoyed the short tiny rides, and hanging out at Trophies and Porky's. I love going on rides with large groups of bikers (15 or more bikes), and then getting together and just hanging out. I didn't quite enjoy the bar (the Jungle Room) that much, but just cause there was cigarette smoke, and lots of noise, so you really can't hear each other talk. But I love Porky's and Trophies.

So, I read in the paper, Tuesday, I believe, that Joe Rosenthal died, that's the guy that took the famous picture of the flag raising on Iwo Jima.
Also, Pluto is no longer considered a planet, that's right, now it's only a star.

Well, today, we went to a tea room here in town, and then shopped around it afterward. And then we went to a tiny town about 5 miles north. Which I didn't really wanna do (but I'll let you in on a little secret: it was fun). Anyways, a couple years ago, 3 consignment shops moved into the downtown area here, and we've been saying we should go in and look in them. Well, I suggested we do that, and she said "I've been to the one on _____ and it's not very interesting", guess that means, I won't be interested in it. And then, she decided we weren't gonna do anything downtown, cause I could do that anyday of the week, yes I could, but I thought we were gonna do the "touristy thing here". Which I found out, there is nothing I haven't heard of in my town, so...yeah. And she decided I'm going to a movie with her tonight, a movie I have no desire to see, and of course it's always nice to go to movies with your parents. I had also suggested a rock store that's west of town, but she decided since she wasn't interested in it, we weren't going. Once again, god forbid I want to go, cause it's obviously all about you. Did I mention I'm helping her move shit at her office to get ready before the students come back Monday. Yes, I am getting paid for it, but still kinda ruins the whole, touristy thing, don't ya think.
And tomorrow is another fun filled day with my mom. Once again, tons of sarcasm in that.

Yep, I have a temper, if you're my guinea pig, you would know that. But, maybe if she were smarter and learned when to shut the fuck up, there would be no problem. Or, other times I get annoyed with myself and take it out on my walls, thankfully I haven't had anything more serious than red knuckles, until today. I'm thinking I bruised my hand, or something, cause nothing feels broken (thank God)
I believe this is one of the reasons I will never become a cop, my temper and very short fuse. Plus, I will speak my mind (that has gotten me in trouble a couple times), you will not stop me from speaking my mind, unless I think I may be fired for it. But, certain (stupid) people get on my nerves and I can't help but blow up on them. I actually thought I was doing a good job of keeping a lid on it until yesterday when some person (see, I did pretty good with the namecalling there) yelled at me for standing in my yard, to which I went to confront her, and her boyfriend came out, and I could tell he knew I wouldn't back down, until he stepped in and told her to be quiet and asked (well not exactly) me to go back to my yard. My guess is if he hadn't stepped in and said his girlfriend shouldn't have yelled at me for being in my yard, well things would have escalated.
Like I said, I have a temper, and I don't back down. And that gets me in trouble

I feel like crap, and not just cold/flu crap, really painful crap, course as I'm typing this it's not as bad, so hopefully it will run away.
I've got a really annoying painful sharp jabbing pain in my stomach, plus I'm very nauseated and feeling like I'm gonna puke. I haven't thrown up in like months if not a whole year. I feel if I move or do too much of anything I will pass out or puke. Lucky me.
And like I said, I'm planning on seeing Karli this evening, I have to mow at least one lawn tomorrow morning, and I hope to go to the state fair tomorrow evening. If this goes and messes up any of these plans I will be very disappointed to say the least.
And then magically it's gone, only took it 40 min, stupid body.
Wednesday, August 09, 2006
So, it's geting to the end of the summer, that usually means three things for me: Iowa State Fair, week up north, and of course, classes starting.
I think the State Fair is the one thing that hasn't become less fun as I get older (of course, I don't really remember going as a kid, so that could have something to do with it, or at least not going for fun, I went a few times when my 4-H stuff), I remember going with my aunt and her family when I was younger. I remember one year, my uncle and I were having a contest of who could collect the most promotional magnets. I like going to the fair, there's never been a time, where I've gone that I haven't had fun, even when I only went for 4-H stuff. Course it seems to be more fun when I go with friends (not quite sure why). Two years ago, I went with a couple people I met online, I remember I told them all the stuff I wanted to do and we did it. Last year I went with Karli, because she had won tickets to Big & Rich, and took me along. This year, looks like I won't be going, that kinda bums me out. I don't know of anyone else who is going, it's just no fun to go by yourself.
My grandparents had a timeshare condo up in a town 4 hrs north, for a week at the end of the summer, and I remember going there as a little kids, the four of us and my dad's parents. We have some great pictures from that place. I'm not quite sure when my dad got it, but both my dad's parents are gone now, and it's really nice to go up there and reminisce. Also, a place that doesn't get boring as I get older. There's always a couple places that have been there as long as I can remember, and thankfully are still there now. I'm gonna miss going this year. It just doesn't mesh with our schedules, classes start on the 21st, and as far as I know the week we've had up there has nicely always fallen on the week before classes start, but this year, it starts on the 19th. We could drive up Sat and drive back Sun, but that's a ton of driving for just 2 days. I have a class at 9 on Mon, otherwise we might be able to stay longer. I'm really gonna miss that this year.
And classes start soon. I'm almost looking forward to that (I know I'll regret saying that later), but I'm so bored right now. My internship ended on Friday (yes, I passed, kinda sucks we do it for a grade, but...), and I'm ready to have a nice structured schedule and stuff to do. I wanna work on my classes so I won't have to worry when grades come out. I didn't wanna stick that on my other blog, cause my parents will hold me to that, even if I'm already pushing for it, it will be too much pressure. This I know, my mom loves to put pressure on me.
Course, fall coming also means the return of shows. So, that will be fun, I think I've cut back a little, with shows I've decided I won't get hooked to this season, and one's that were cancelled. So, with luck, I'll be tuning back in for Medium, The Unit, Bones, CSI, Supernatural, Cops, Cold Case and the Amazing Race. I think it would actually be more productive for me (and a bonus at the end of the week), to tape them, and then watch them on the weekend. That way, I wouldn't have to worry about getting shit done before watching them, and then I'd have a nice bonus at the end of the week. Only bad thing, two of my shows are on at the same time, on the same day, so that's always rough.
I'm just so bored with my life right now. Same shit every day. Get up, piddle around til I go to work. Sit there and read for about 3 hours. Come home, go on a walk (which really isn't boosting my mood lately, it's just a way to get off my ass and out of the house), watch some TV, go to bed. Every day. Sometime next week, I will be going to the bookstore to give my money away. Then I'll see what wonders I get to delve into this fall. That's kinda half the reason I want classes to start, see more people, and, hopefully, not be bored all the time.
Hopefully I'll get back into a structured schedule as well. Not that my schedule isn't that structured now as you can see above, but I need more to do.

I seem to be real good at fucking myself up at work. Tues when I was closing I TRIPPED UP the stairs, that's real talent right there. And if I hadn't grabbed the railing, I would have slammed my face into those stairs and probably knocked myself out. Go me in the talent department.
Yeah, I'm on that no money for food diet. I do have ~$500, but I have to save that to spend on books, once I figure out how much I need for books, and I mow a lawn, I can spend money on food. It's wierd, I just spent about $30 dollars on food at HyVee on Sunday, and I'm already out of food. That was 4 or 5 TV dinners, 2 12 packs of Vault, some donuts, a box of granola bars and some fruit/milk drinks. I can get so much more for less at Fareway.
UGH! So the summer semester of classes ends on Friday and fall starts in 2 weeks. I can't believe summer's over already. I feel old saying this but...it feels like only yesterday I started at my internship. And now, tomorrow, I'm going to say goodbye, they're throwing me a mini party (read the director's getting a few of the volunteers to come in and say goodbye to me). Hopefully, she gave me good feedback and comments on the evaluation she turned into my advisor, we do get graded on this, and I need a nice passing grade to graduate. Though, as far as I know, she didn't have any problems with me, I always did what I was asked, there actually wasn't more than was asked of me to do. So, I should be ok. Of course it sucks not knowing what you got, and seeing as how it wasn't really a course where you're graded on tests and papers and such, I'm really not gonna know til the 9th. I hate waiting, course seeing as I'm not too worried about it, I should be OK. There's only thing that worries me (and I really hope she didn't mention this), but I'm not gonna say anything about it until after my grade is posted, in case someone who knows me, reads this and may have a hand in changing my grade. And by that time, I may have forgotten it, so it may never be posted.
Am I the only one that doesn't give a damn about Mel Gibson and his drunken arrest? Everyone's blowing it out of proportion, now I'm not saying he should have said the shit he did, but if this were a normal person. NO ONE WOULD CARE! It would just be swept under the rug, and no one would even know. This is the way I feel about celebs, I don't really give a damn about their personal lives, if they weren't celebs, it would be normal (not that it isn't), and no one would ever know. But, god forbid we not know someone almost dropped their baby, or that someone got arrested for driving drunk.
On our way home from Chicago, we stopped off at a Hobby Lobby, but unlike some other stores I feel all Hobby Lobby's have the same stuf...
Since I didn't do Hodgepodge today, and I saw one of my Youtube subscriptions do this, I thought I would too. They are fall questions. ...
