|Oh Lord i was born a ramblin man...
I just finished two of my finals today. I have one left on Friday morning at 8am, but all i want to do is go home. I was planing on driving down to Hollister on Friday but apprently it is going to rain/snow/be really fucking cold when i want to drive back up on the 13th so my father just left me a message telling me that he doesn't want me to go anywhere.
I was planning on arguing with him and just driving anyway but i decided to check the weather first and... he's right and there is no way that i can take the chance to drive down seeing as though i HAVE to be back on the 14th. I'm thinking about taking the Amtrak to Salinas but the ride would be 19 hours long...
I have a drug test tomorrow. I've been clean for 3 1/2 weeks and i have been drinking natural detox teas so i think i will be fine, however, there is a slight possibility it could show up positive so i'm a little nervious.
I'm going to start working at Sacret Heart Medical hospital and my orientation is on the 14th. i begin work on the 18th-full time for at least 3 weeks (working everyday except Christmas day). I will be completeling my clinicals for phlebotomy so i have to work 120 hours, get 100 veinapuncture and 25 skin punctures... i'm not really nervious to start because i have been a volunteer phlebotomist at Volunteers in Medicine for the past month so i've got this blood-drawing this down. I'm excited that i'm actually starting a career and once i get certified i can work anywhere in the world and be able to make a living... pretty sweet huh?
Hmm... i just found out my roommate has never heard of Avenue Q. I feel like some corruption may be order...

|Mixing instant blueberry oatmeal and banana nut bread oatmeal is heaven in a bowl
i hate 9:00 class... it throws off my entire day. A nap is definately in store this afternoon.
ahhh yeah. I just released the loudest fart... too bad i'm home alone and the only one here to enjoy it.
NOTE FOR THE DAY: If you replace your "normal light bulbs" with floresence ones, it would be like taking 1,000 cars off the road... in terms of the emissions that it releases into our environment. Cool huh? Now take action.

|You can do it...
School started on Monday. My classes seem fucking hard (well, most of them) but they also seem really interesting and i can't wait to start working on some serious environmental projects. Annie-Marie and i are thinking about starting a compost pick-up in our neighborhood and/or on campus. I mean, its cool to think that i am taking a class that will teach me about how to write proposals and plans for issues i'm concerned about. If anyone has the chance to take an Environmental Management class, you should do it, you should also be taking general environmental classes so you can actually know what is going on with our planet and the kinds of things we can do to help reverse the problems that we have caused. The problem is that we are spending too much time blaming this and that and not taking action. It's our fucking fault the planet is in such a terrible position and its time to do something about it.
We have the power to do something about issues like global warming right now! but if we wait too long... and we are taking about within the next 10 years(which goes by very fast)... it could be too late. Do the research yourselves, hopefully it will upset you as much as it did me and you will be willing to give up some of your luxuries for the good of the planet. If not, or if you think that it is too hard, step back and realize that we, as citizens of the US, have a total advantage and can be role models for the rest for the world. Current Mood: awake

I am in Minnesota right now.
I think it might rain. Nikki's at work and i'm entertaining myself with their MASSIVE anime collection.
Went to the Institute of Art today...i think we spent more time being lost and driving around Minneapolis then we spent at the museum. i didn't mind because now i know what the city looks like, i kinda enjoy getting lost, i think it is the best way to get to know a city.
I'm going to see what kind of food is in this house... Current Mood: amused

|If you put all your apples in a row you can eat them faster
Last night we took chalk to the road in front of our house. For hours we drew cartoons and random art. It was beautiful. A man rode by on his bike and couldn't keep his eyes off of our work... i wish i could have taken a picture.
Later my friend Zack called me to take advantage of the summer rates at the bowling ally. There were four of us and out of the 2 games of bowling and 2 games of pool that we played... I won ever time!! (with the help of my partner Zack for pool)It was a very satisfying night that allowed me to come home and fall alseep. Priceless.
As of today: It was a productive day for the first half of today and then i decided to spend time with my housemates and not do anything. Not bad. I think we are all realizing that the sunny days are starting to dwindle and we are putting "spending time outdoors" as a major priority right now.
In the morining i have my practical final for phlebotomy. I have to do each type of draw consecutively and successfully, i think i will be fine. However, our written final on Tuesday kicked my ass! Tomorrow night i must do something extremely exciting in celebration of finishing my last final of the summer. Maybe i'll go streaking downtown, who knows. (Oh and thank you Sparky for leaving your bottle of booze in my freezer, it will be enjoyed immensely)
...For the past hour i have been looking up places that i want to go to in MN. I'm fuckin stoked because i think this could be really exciting Current Mood: tired
|Friday, August 25th, 2006|
I think i'm going to go make a killer dinner with cod tonight.
I stayed up until the sun came up last night then helped Matt pack all his belongings into a u-haul, then taken the u-haul to the storage unit and unload it, then grab some grub and drive to the airport.
I just woke up. I still hate the construction outside my window. Current Mood: hungry
|Wednesday, August 23rd, 2006|
So it looks like i will be traveling to Minneapolis in a few weeks if all goes well. It will be great to see Nikki and i'm going to make her take me cool places, even if she hasn't been there before because that is what sisters are for.
I'm trying to get better at the whole keeping in touch with family thing. I forgot my dad's birthday on Sat and i've never felt so bad, thats probably what prompted this new change in values but it is something that i've definately been meaning to do.
I went camping this past weeked in Hood River, OR and i had a complete blast. My car was so packed that i got pulled over because i couldn't see out of my back window. We set up camp in a different area each night and only paid for a site once. I spent one day by the hood river and almost got swept away by the huge current. My life somewhat flashed before my eyes but i'm a big girl and was able to wrap my legs around some rocks and pull myself to safty. I made it out alive and extremely tan.
Last night my friend's co-worker Sheela called me to come over and have some drinks. There were 4 of us and i definately got drunk and had a great night. Hopefully it will happen again soon. Lekadia came over when she got off work to give my drunkass a ride home, i love my friends. Current Mood: hopeful

|God must eat cheesecake everyday...
Jen, Julie and I just ate a whole cheesecake. It was good... yummm...
I think i'm going to dye my hair again tonight.
This past weeked was Julie's last weekend here so we decided to go out to breakfast at the Orginial Pancake House. It was good. Too long of a wait and too expensive, but good. Then i met with a group for writing 122... we didn't get much work done because we spent most of the time bitching about my teacher. She does Not like me, and now i know i'm not the only person who feels she has something against me. I had a paper, an outline for a different paper and a presentation due Today.
I spent two hours hanging out with Ruby and Pearl on Sunday while they tried to get people to interview for a project.
In the past 23 hours i have burned about 18 cds from Jen's computer. Damn, my music collection is going to be wonderful.
Saturday was great. I went running in the morning, then called up Lauren to see if she wanted to grab breakfast. Biked to Barnhart, had a wonderful meal and then Lauren, her friend Amy and i decided to go to the Valley River Center to see a movie. We stoped for a while a fed the ducks and geese at a park... they were so cute, they were even eatting out of my hands! Then we went to the mall where this store was going out of business, bought cheap things, watched a movie who's name i can't remember then came home and hung out with Jen.
I'm really stressed about finals, i wish i was doing better in my classes. I mean i'm not doing bad per say but i know i could do better. Current Mood: full

Go there ^
|You Are a Natural Flirt|
Believe it or not, you're a really effective flirt.
And you're so good, you hardly notice that you're flirting.
Your attitude and confidence make you a natural flirt.
And the fact that you don't know it is just that more attractive!
...i got bored. Current Mood: awake
|Tuesday, March 7th, 2006|
Dude! i can't sign up for my classes until 11:30 and i'm so scared all of the classes i want are going to be taken! Oh the horror!!!
I can only get classes on M,W,F because i will be in class from 9 to 2 on Tuesdays and Thursday for my Phlobotomy class. Thats a long time to be in class... i mean i could take classes later but i just don't really feel like it (although i might not have a choice).
I really like Mary J Blige and Lauryn Hill.
I think i might just ask for a single next term instead of having another roommate. I think 3 roommates in one year doesn't make me sound very good...even though i swear it's not me!
i love the way this guy says mascara on the commerical... i don't think i will ever say it the old boring way again.
|Sunday, February 26th, 2006|
i have to write a 6 page paper on the concept of responsibility.
i'm avoiding it terribly...
i have no clue what to write...
dude! did you know that stress can make a person physically older and lead to an earlier death?!? well, it has to do a lot with how a person deals with stress... so all of you pessimistic people are screwed, just to let you know. Current Mood: nostalgic

Would you consider me a flirt?
I've been told this many times but i can never figure out what i am doing. I think i'm just being friendly... where does the line between the two cross?
I always seem to get myself into trouble with my friends because of it. I guess i always seem to get the wrong person's attention and i'm accused of leading people on when i don't want to or when i do want to but that person is already "claimed" or taken by another friend. Maybe i just have a huge attraction for things i can't have. It makes it easier for me.
I thought not wanting to be in a relationship and just having no strings attached was going to be easy. It's not. People fall for you, you fall for someone else and you have decided that you don't want a relationship so you push everyone away.
I'm really fucked up.
Why couldn't i just be asexual? Current Mood: confused

Today is the 5 year anniversary of my mom's death.
I'm doing good. I'm studying and going to the Wailer's concert tonight. I think i'm just trying to keep my mind off things.
I have a midterm tomorrow but i think it will be fine.
How does a conversation with one person make you feel so much better about the world? I'm very lucky to have good friends.
I think everyone is a little crazy, i just hope i'm not too crazy sometimes.
The 2 girls i hung with fall term made the front page of the oregon daily newspaper for their hospital trip and for the frat that got cited for giving them alcohol. They are not named. This is definately something i am putting in my scrap book.
Its time for dinner and convincing people to get me drunk before the concert...
...and i wish this cold would go away... i've been sick for almost a week now... Current Mood: sick
|Sunday, January 29th, 2006|
made out with 8 people last night.
extremely content with my "non-relationship" with Whit.
not as hung over as i was yesterday.
might have a date with this girl jen if she calls.
trying to get insurance but it's confusing.
Midterms start this week... fuck.
i want to take a nap and then get a smoothie.
L-Word is on tonight. must watch.
Dreading my Yoga class but know i will feel better after.
Lovely Bones is a fucking great book... but i don't think i have ever cried so much after just reading a book... its crazy.
It's raining. a lot. I think i'm getting used to it.
I think i've been saying "hella" and "like" a lot more than when i was in California....or maybe people just point it out more here... who knows.
Went to the G. Love and Special Sauce concert on friday. It was sooooo good, i still can't get over it.
Wailers are coming on February 8.
February 8 is the 5 year anniversary. I've been thinking about it a lot lately.
I think i am going to be fine. Current Mood: drained

it's almost 4 and i'm still hungover. i love have only 1 class on Monday, and its self defense. go me. Current Mood: tired
|Wednesday, January 18th, 2006|
Self-Defense class is one of the most entertaining (getting to yell and kick at peers) and the most absolutely depressing class i have ever taken. So far we have listened to 3 rape stories and talked about what to do if we get put in that situation. it's going to make me paranoid that everyone is going to attack me... and i have to remember tiny details about everyone i meet so that i can identify them later if they rape me. Current Mood: contemplative

|i'm so avoiding homework...
According to the Movies.com Which Movie Star Are You Like? quiz, you're:
Leader of the frat pack; that's the first impression people have of you, but your friends also describe your sharp, lightening-quick wit and your generosity. As for dating, you've been shrewd enough to keep the details to yourself, which is a lot more than some of your tabloid-fave fellow actors can claim.

I feel much better about how things are going here in Eugene.
I have a WONDERFUL new roommate. We get along great and she is such a great influence on me.
My roomie, Julie and Anne-Marie are starting to go to this Bikram's Yoga class downtown. Our fist time was on Thursday... it is 90 mins of hardcore yoga in a room that is heated to 105 degrees. I thought i was going to die... it was the hardest fucking workout i have had in my life!! But i signed up for a month and i am going to go atleast 3 times a week.
i really like my classes. I dropped my math class so that i could pick up a job. I'm still looking... and waiting to hear back from some people... wish me luck.
I hung out with Tiffany (my old roommate) the other night and completely remembered why i don't want to party with them anymore. I end up doing stupid shit, they end up doing stupid shit, there is usually tons of getting groped and making out with people who's faces or names i can't remember (which can be fun in some cases and not so much in others...)
I really like being single.
The laundry room is like a zoo right now... i got to the room 5 mins after my clothes finished washing and someone had taken them out and put them on top of the machiene... i hate when strangers touch my laundry... now i have to go get them out of the dryer and then i am off to lunch!!
