Moving on and Moving up...

Sorry it's been so long since I've been on here so I figure I'll give a bit of an update on what's been going on with me, though I only have 4 readers so I'm sure I haven't been too missed. I moved at the beginning of September, I am now a resident of Misawaka, IN and live in the "big city" *said with lil' country accent* lol. I'm working at the mall in Payless and in the time I've worked there since getting hired (almost 5 months) I have gone from part time to full time. Yey me!

So a little more on the move, I live off Grape road so I'm not far from pretty much everything shopping and food wise. Sam and I got the apt together though he's still working in New York till about the middle of November. it's a 3rd floor apt so that pretty much sucks when it comes to groceries, but we don't have to listen to people stomp around above us and we have a fireplace so I think it just about evens itself out lol. I'm still working on getting things in it's place, but hoping to be done with that by the holidays. It's a nice two bedroom apt it has one bath and a utility closet, my bedroom has a second vanity so I can have all my hair, makeup, and what not stuff in the bedroom and not making a mess in the bathroom lol and we have a walk-in closet so that's cool. Been getting used to the whole electric stove top as I've always had a gas one at my parents, but Sam seems to like my cooking so I haven't been doing too bad.

I think the Chinchillas are liking it because they have thier own room and they actually get to get out of their cage and run around the room, Resses is able to go in and out as she pleases while Snickers hasn't figured out how to get back in the cage, but can come out on her own. Sam loves to let the girls out and feed them treats especially when I'm not home. They are just so much fun to watch because they are so curious and love to come to you for treats. :)

Sam and I are doing really well, we've been trying to do a lot of things together when he's home... This past week he was home most the week and we went to my FIRST ND game!! Which was wet and cold, but a great game. We went out with a friend of his one night, we burned our first fire in our fireplace, and I kicked his butt in LIFE another night. Next weekend I'm going out to New York to spend the weekend out there with him and see what he's been doing and he's going to take me to Niagra Falls since I've never been there before (weather permitting).

Well more later I guess I should do something around here.

And here we go 'round

Can't sleep... took a tylenol pm a little over an hr ago and I still can't sleep. Maybe I should have taken 2 like it said, but I didn't want to over sleep. I get my permenant crown in tomorrow, which will be nice. After all that crap I went through to get this root canal (which was not anywhere near the horror that everyone makes them out to be, at least mine wasn't ever have to get one ask me I'll send you to the guy I went to) back to what I was saying... My mouth should finally start feeling more like normal. I still have like 4 more cavities to fill in before the end of summer (and my insurance) though.

I started a new job. I now work at the Payless ShoeSource at University Park Mall, and I really am enjoying it (not to mention my employee discount hehe). So far my summer has been going pretty well I would say.

Three more weeks till my 24th birthday, and I'm starting to see it... and by that I just mean I see everyone around me growing up and am realizing how old I am. I joke about being old, and I know I'm not, but when I see friends kids, cousins, and older relatives growing older it makes me see where I am at. Just an odd feeling is all. And my dog too hes 13/14 and has become clingy, starting to lose his eye sight/hearing/sense of smell, he gets the shakes, and has trouble with stairs and jumping onto furniture. Its going to be hard to let that dog go we've had him for 12 years. He's my Sam-O. (speaking of the devil he just came and layed in my lap. not really a small dog and not been much of a lap dog this is not his normal behavior)

My cousin got married last weekend and that was really nice, most the family was able to be there, and I helped her with keeping things inline lol. I also caught the boquet heehe. Third one in my life, second since turning 21. And the last one was for the other side so I'm just gonna go with I'm the next on both sides of the family to get married hahahaaa.... Yea ok.... Another plus side to that was I got to spend some really kool quality time with a few of my little cousins, one which includes my goddaughter Megan (my youngest cousin who is 2 and in the picture above)... I love hanging out with my little cousins, they just help me to feel like a kid, and those who know me know how much I love to feel like a kid :)

Well I think I should be off to bed, I'm thinking my next post might just be on my new favorite game... hehe...

Screws fall out all the time...The world is an imperfect place

OMG! I'm like totally bored! LOL

Do you know where my title came from? If you can tell me I may just owe you a kiss.. :)

Ok enough of that... I should probably be studying, doing homework, reading, anything but this... This is just wasting my time.. hehe So Yea lost my camera Thursday, was completely depressed about that cause I didn't realize it till Friday.. But it's all good cause mom bought me a new one Saturday! haha... She's too easy to convince, but I love her for it. And hey I got a really awesome deal on a nice camera left over from an after Thanksgiving sale.. haha.. yea it was a random find by the lady in the photo area at Wal-mart. I'm enjoying it and the pics I've taken so far.

So anyways... Not much else to say I guess.. Should get back to doing something constructive... BAH

Oh and realized through the wonderfulness which is Firefox that I have been spelling castastrophy (actually spelled castastrophe) wrong this whole time when I created my yahoo account, and I swear I used or something to make sure it was spelled right... lol That's ok kinda like my way more, looks better to me for the purpose it had... I think maybe I just like the letter "Y" ... hahaaa

Mother Nature will you turn up the heater?...Please?!..

I am very very ready for summer! Or spring at the least... I want the snow gone and the ability to put my coat away... I don't want to have to wipe my car off before driving it, and I'm tired of it looking as if I had just took it mudding. I haven't even washed my car because there is no point. Oh and I want to be able to clean it out completely but as it's too cold I don't even bother taking stuff out of the trunk... At least the sun as been out quite a lot lately, that could be a good sign. A cold, sunny day, with snow on the ground is better than a freezing, dark day with a blizzard blowing...I like snow, it's pretty, its neat, but I can't stand the cold...So bring on temps above 45!!! PLEASE!!!

In the words of my Great Great Grandma....
"My aasssss hurts!"

Hehe Ok so maybe it's not that bad... But it definitely doesn't feel good. I feel as if I have bruised my tail bone. It hurts to sit it hurts to stand up from a sitting position, it hurts to bend over when I'm sitting. putting pressure on a certian side by crossing my legs or just leaning one way or another while sitting hurts... I didn't do anything to myself. No falling down, no extreme lifting... And this has been going on for a month if not more... I just don't get it... All I know it that it hurts, it sucks, and I want it to stop... Expecially since I'm not always sitting in a soft seat during classes... bah!!

My lids grow heavy....

I love going to the library...I study a little, mess around on the computers a little... Nap some... lol for some reason I just love to nap in the IUSB Library. I know it sounds weird. Napping at school? Trust me there are couches and chairs everywhere on campus and yea some use them as a nice comfortable place to study, read, whatever, but then there are those of us who just can't seem to make it through the day and we are the ones who pop a squat and just sleep lol. And then when its warm you find people on the lawn... There used to be a "Nap Club" where they had a room, and blow up mattresses and someone who would wake you up if you asked them to at a certian time... Don't know what happened to that, but I do know it doesn't bother me to just sleep where ever I can find a spot on campus hehe.

Though Tuesdays and Thrusdays are my hardest times because I have 3 classes back to back so by the time I get to my third class I'm dead tired and add to the fact that my professor is monotone and repetitive in his lectures and well sometimes (ok often) I end up asleep in his class... Yet because its mainly the slide info you want and because he just drones on and changes slides every few min I'm still able to catch all the slides and info I need so I'm still doing really well in that class...hahaaa. I'm strage like that, I can sleep through a class yet know what the prof is talking about and even still participate and know what I'm talking about or asking about... Guess it was all that practice in HS.

I See You....

Ok I know really really But for some reason I started to think of what colors were in my eyes. And then I got on Wikipedia and looked up stuff on eye-color and it had these pics with the article of eyes really close up and it was really crazy to see how that part of your eye is and all the shapes and colors so I wanted to see the colors up close in my eyes.

The wikipedia said there are three colors which combine to make all the other colors based on how much of what color there is and the shade and then of course a persons eyes can changed based on environment (i.e. clothes, makeup, light...etc.) And though your eyes are usually their natural perment color by age 3 your eye color can still change as an adult ususally because of the sun.

Anyways, I had more bluish eyes when I was younger (yea and i was blonde for quite a while too, maybe that explains some of these moments i tend to have hehe). Well now that I'm older they've seemed more like a blue-green (which although implies its green with a bit of blue, when it comes to eye color apparently its considered a blue...interesting). Well I took these pics to see the different colors in my eyes. The article also says that green eyes are made up of blues and yellows... which I can definitely see in the pics. There was a lot more interesting things but they did not pertain to me hehe...

There is the link to the article I read... Like I said really interesting...

So based on these pics (which aren't the greatest but best I could get with the digi I've got) (and I also didn't take my contacts out so I don't know if that added or removed any glare or anything) but what ya think? heh I know, I've always loved my eyes....

Nothingness...(oh, and "The Boss")

My mind is blank... Too much school is on the brain at the moment...Soooo, I leave you with a pic of me from last night/this morning (thus it counts as a pic for today as it was taken after midnight) while I was out with a good friend for her birthday. Have to say, it was definitely nice as her and I hadn't hung out like that in years and it felt like old times... :) Well Enjoy!

Oh, an after thought: I'm sad the Cardinals didn't win only because I like rooting for the underdog when my team isn't in the Super Bowl...Though I didn't really watch it as much this year as I usually do, it wasn't all that exciting. Gave up after "The Boss" and his band played. Wasn't entirely impressed by the halftime show this year, like Springsteen and it was good, but it didn't really seemed pumped up until the last song which of course was "Glory Days" very much enjoyed that one and its presentation... :)

But my lips hurt real bad!

So I feel the need to plug my chapstick...hehe I've never been much of a chapstick person... never really cared for that greasy feeling on my lips. Or how sticky my lips would be when I had it on, often just wiping it off shortly after putting it on. There's also that funky taste that some chapsticks have.. So needless to say more often than not I go without anything on my lips thus risking chaped, peeling, bleeding, hard lips... Yuck who wants to kiss that... (not that anyone does I've found a few diff chapsticks I like over time, but none as much as this new chapstick...

It's Nivea "A kiss of Moisture" I love it!! It has no taste to it, if you lick your lips all you feel/taste are your soft lips. Its not greesy or sticky its just smooth... It works immediately and isn't thick. It just makes my lips feel so nice!! So I deffently recommend this to anyone who has issues with chapstick but can no longer stand having dry/chapped lips... Well I'll recommend it to anyone who like chapstick too...hehe

And the Nominees are....

Robert Downey Jr in.... Tropic Thunder?... Really?...Seriously?....

Don't get me wrong, I'm a Downey fan, and I thought Tropic Thunder was hilarious (which surprised me I didn't expect to like it)... And his role was definitely my favorite in the movie, but did it really deserve an Oscar nomination?
It definitely surprised me when I was looking up the nominations earlier and saw that...

I mean his character was great! And he definitely had some great lines... But I just didn't, and still really don't see it, as Oscar material... So is it his protrail of "...the dude playin' the dude, disguised as another dude!"? Or is it the character itself with lines like...

"Being an actor's no different than being a rugby player or a construction worker, save for the fact that my tools are the mechanisms that trigger human emotion?

"I don't read the script. The script reads me"

"Check it out. Dustin Hoffman, 'Rain Man,' look retarded, act retarded, not retarded. Counted toothpicks, cheated cards. Autistic, sho'. Not retarded. You know Tom Hanks, 'Forrest Gump.' Slow, yes. Retarded, maybe. Braces on his legs. But he charmed the pants off Nixon and won a ping-pong competition. That ain't retarded. Peter Sellers, "Being There." Infantile, yes. Retarded, no. You went full retard, man. Never go full retard. You don't buy that? Ask Sean Penn, 2001, "I Am Sam." Remember? Went full retard, went home empty handed... "

This film makes fun of just about any kind of actor there is out there, that's what makes it so great...And RDJ's character hits the over the top, trained method actor... But again, really a nomination?

Sleeping Beauty?...

To say I have a sleep problem is an understatement... I don't know a word for something worse than that, but what ever it is that's how you would describe my sleep...

<<< This is what I did all day, and by all day I mean for 14hrs. Sound like fun?...Yea...No, I had two classes today and didn't even wake up for those. Though I did happen to shut my alarm off at some point in time. I can't understand how it is that I can be awake for 25-35hrs at a time (without artificial help), sleep for maybe 3hrs, do all that all over again, sometimes multiple times, and then at some point in time I fall asleep and sleep for over 10hrs. I've tried everything but meds and my Dr and I are really hesitant to put me on them since when I do sleep I can sleep for too long on my own anyway.

My sleep habits piss everyone off. They think I do it on purpose. Now who the hell would want to sleep for more than 8hrs when they aren't sick? I just either can't fall asleep, as if my mind won't shut itself off, or don't wake up once I do, as if my deep sleep is a freakin' dark abyss which never ends. People talk to me and I talk back, and never recall getting up in anyway let alone a conversation. Heck, I've had text message conversations in my sleep, now what does that say about the way my brain works... Seems kinda fucked up to me... And then I can lay in bed for hrs and not fall asleep when I'm going through my bouts of insomnia. That is what sucks... Knowing I have to get up in 2hrs and finally falling asleep when I've been up for 20 some hrs. I've tried exercising to wear myself out, that doesn't help, tried reading, knitting/crocheting...I've tried music, no music, warm room, cold room... I get nothing to put me to sleep, but once I am asleep I'm out...I just don't get it. Anyone else have this issue and know how maybe to help me? I really wish I had normal sleep habits, trust me I got shit I want to get done, sleeping all day is not one of them....

The Many Faces of Me...

This is my lame attempt at a real blog. Not quite sure where I plan to go with it from here, but everyone else seems to be doing it so why not conform with the masses...

Right now at this moment I don't feel like being anywhere. So I'm sitting in the IUSB library contemplating the meaning of life... Ok, no, not really, just pissin' 'round on the internet. And obviously discovering that I can use the cam on the Macs and all the fun things you can do with PhotoBooth. Which by the way if you ever feel the need to spend an unappropriate amount of money on me... I want a Mac... hehe, whatever it is their version of a laptop is, yea I'll be sure not to hold my breath on that one..haha.

I continue to get highly distracted sitting here... First it was my decision to start this blog, then I wanted to add a photo to my post so I started playing with PhotoBooth, next I decided to actually write the post, and now.... now my brain has just wiped itself clear of any and all intelligent thoughts... Guess I'll have to wait till tomorrow to write something profound for you to read...
