The School, The School, The School is on Fiiire

So today was relatively normal.
Went to class, watched a movie, went to lunch, went to work.
Worked until about 4:30-5:00. It was a quiet day.
Spent most of that time joking around with my co-workers, having a good time.
Helped anyone that needed it, nothing too complicated.

And then I hear a yell from across the room.
At first I thought it was just someone that didn't really have great social skills and spoke too loudly.
"Listen up!"
Huh, that's odd. *turns to look* Oh... uh oh. That's a security guard.
"We're going to need to evacuate the building. Everyone grab your things and evacuate immediately!"
Oh... oh awesome.

So I grabbed my things, went in and told the testers to get out, handed out their cellphones and evacuated.
While leaving the building there was a horrible odor of burning rubber and a fine amount of smoke in the air.
I was scheduled to work until 8:00 PM and I was still on the clock, so I had to wait outside with everyone else while we waited for the building to re-open.
I took this opportunity to take pictures of our ordeal.That's Daniel, my co-worker and Tim, my supervisor.Me and Daniel. He tried a thousand times to take a picture, but my phone was being super stupid. FINALLY got it to work. And resulted in my "ghost face". Why am I so white?!Me and Kriz. Thank the frickin' lord that my face is NOT washed out for once.This is me and Richard, my "work boyfriend". Hahahaha. (Don't be threatened Drew, it's a joke!)
We weren't permitted back in the building for the rest of the night, so I got to go home early. While I waited for my mom to come get me Richard and I hung out in his car and watched videos on his in-car computer thingy.
Came home, ate dinner, blogged about my night.

Too bad tomorrow won't be as exciting... unless the school spontaneously combusts.
But I'd prefer that didn't happen.

Strong Spirit

My grandmother and my sister. Keep her in your prayers!
I'm thankful that after everything, she can look as good as she does.

Hey, wait a minute...

"Where's MY dinner?!"
Happy Thanksgiving!

A Book to Look Into

A few weeks ago I was watching the news, suffering from my anxiety as usual.
Suddenly this segment pops up with a scientist talking about his new book.
The book?Once again the TV brings me some kind of calmness.
More and more I've seen why the atheists I've talked to are probably wrong.
Especially because many of my friends are so positive of an afterlife.

My mother laughs at me now. "I had a near death experience, I've told you about it. What more do you want from me?!?!"
It's just something that bothers me. It doesn't cause me panic attacks every night like it used to. It's just a nagging feeling that follows me throughout the day.

Now I try to focus more on my relationship with God.

My grandmother fell out of her hospital bed today. She was rushed to the ER, and now apparently she is talking gibberish and she sees dead people.
She sees her dead parents and many of her dead friends. She swears they're right there in the room.
We're worried she's not going to live to Christmas.
So please pray for me and my need for more spiritual stability, and for my grandmother, mother and other family members.
This could be a very stressful holiday season.

Should I Justify This Stupidity? (Oops!)

I accidentally hit "enter" and it posted this blank.
Which was stupid.

OKAY, here we go.
I have turned off anonymous commenting. NOT because of what I'm about to justify, but because I've been getting a rampant amount of ads posted in my comments lately.
I don't know who got a hold of my blog address, but I seriously don't appreciate it.

Now another anonymous comment I got needs to be addressed.

Anonymous: Thats awesome. How many times did you have to trow up to get yourself into those pants? Bet self respect taste good coming up.

First things first, "thats" should be "that's".
Secondly, I never had to "trow" up. If I did ever "trow" up, at least I would know that it is spelled "throw".
And finally, self respect can't "taste". What you may have been going for was that it "tastes" good, but you seemed to drop the ball there.

I'm skinny because I work my ass off, literally, at work all day. When it's busy, I never sit down. Because of this, my metabolism is constantly going.
You're jealous because I'm thin, and you're stupid because your grammar is horrendous and you're too cowardly to come out and let me know how jealous I am without hiding behind an anonymous comment.

Sure, if I puked to make myself thin, that comment would probably make me cry.
Except I don't, so it makes me laugh. A lot.
I wasn't planning on justifying that comment, but the bad grammar and absurd accusation made me laugh so much I wanted to share it with everyone.
So anonymous, come out. Show your face.
I want to know who I'm laughing at.

(OH, I got Left 4 Dead 2. I can't wait to play it... when I'm not EXHAUSTED.)

Dear Everyone...

THIS:Is NOT drugs.
It is a CACTUS.
WHY would I be carrying around drugs connected to my cellphone?
If you ask me again, "Oh my god, is that drugs?" I will literally flip a sh*t.
You have to be a new kind of stupid to think the little cactus connected to my phone is a vial of drugs.
Not that I DO drugs. I don't. But if I did, would I seriously be whipping them out in front of everyone anytime?

Some people shouldn't be allowed out in public.
1.) People that ask if my cactus is drugs in a shocked voice.
2.) People that carry drugs connected to their cellphone in a little glass vial.

In other news I got new jeans. They're a size 5. They have no button or zipper.
They look like they're painted onto my legs they're so skinny.

That's my day in a nutshell. Or apparently in a cactus-containing drug vial.

Sunday Sweets

I thought I'd share a recipe with you weekend readers. My mom made these on Friday, and they taste really great!

Apple Enchiladas


  • 1 (21 ounce) can apple pie filling
  • 6 (8 inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2 quart baking dish.
  2. Spoon about one heaping quarter cup of pie filling evenly down the center of each tortilla. Sprinkle with cinnamon; roll up, tucking in edges; and place seam side down in prepared dish.
  3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar and water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes. Pour sauce over enchiladas and let stand 30 minutes.
  4. Bake in preheated oven 20 minutes, or until golden.
Eat them with ice cream if you want. They're sooo good!

Tag, I'm it!

I was tagged over at The Mighty M Family to do this meme. I usually don't do tags, but for some reason when I saw my name on the "tag 5 people" part, I felt the urge to do it.
I felt elite.
I'm a dweeb.

Anyway, here goes nothing.

1. Name someone with the same birthday as you:

John Quincy Adams. Don't ask how I know that. But I know.

2. Where was your first kiss?

Church, during a "lock-in".

3. Have you ever seriously vandalized someone else's property:

Never in my life. Have I wanted to? Sure. But I never would.

4. Have you ever hit someone of the opposite sex?

Yes. One in particular...

5. Have you ever sung in front of a large number of people?

I've performed in a play and a few talent shows, but I was never singing. I'm not comfortable enough with my voice to do that.

6. What's the first thing you notice about your preferred sex?

Sense of style. If you're sloppy, I'm not interested.

7. What really turns you off?

Sloppiness, unintelligence and "i'm too cool" attitudes. This guy I referred to as "cute information desk guy" instantly lost any attraction for me when he opened his mouth and acted like he was just awesome. In a stuck-up way. NOT interested.

8. What do you order at Starbucks?

Tall mocha frappucino with whipped cream and java chips.

9. What is your biggest mistake?

Not being more outgoing when I was a kid.

10. Have you ever hurt yourself on purpose?


11. Say something totally random about yourself.

When I'm dancing by myself, I like to pretend I'm Lady Gaga.

12. Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity?

I get Angelina Jolie sometimes, which I don't get. I used to get Julia Stiles all the time. I really don't like her, so it was more of an insult than anything else.

13. Do you still watch kiddie movies or TV shows?

I watch Disney Channel sometimes when I want to laugh. I'm still a kid, kind of. So I'm allowed!

14. Did you have braces?

Nope, never.

15. Are you comfortable with your height?

People tell me I'm tall at 5'8". I don't think I am, but I'm happy with my height. I don't feel like I'm a giant, or a tiny person.

16. What is the most romantic thing someone of the preferred sex has done for you?

Well, Drew got me a Twilight blanket last year and sat down and watched Twilight with me. That was really sweet, since he doesn't like Twilight much. Other than that, I can't think of anything.

17. When do you know it's love?

You can just feel it.

18. Do you speak any other languages?

Um... no.

19. Have you ever been to tanning salon?

Never. Pale is power!

20. Have you ever ridden in a limo?

For my 16th birthday I did. Drove to and from my house when we went to Gameworks. The limo was the best part of the entire birthday.

21. What's something that really annoys you?

When someone repeats themselves when you didn't ask them to. Sometimes I feel crazy, because I start crying and putting my fingers in my ears. When someone just keeps talking when I ask them not to... it just drives me insane.

22. What's something you really like?

When my skin clears up. It's nice when it's smooth for once.

23. Can you dance?

Some people say I can. I'm skeptical.

24. Have you ever been rushed by an ambulance into the emergency room?

Funny you should ask. I never have, but just a couple of days ago I asked my dad that very same question when I saw an ambulance go by. Odd coincidence.

25. Tag 5 people!

  1. Sarah
  2. Wendy
  3. Sheri
  4. Erin
  5. Yaya

The Evil Doctor's Scale

Everyone knows about the evil doctor's scale.
The one that makes you seem like a cow, even when you don't feel like you are.
The one that you SWEAR has got to be 10 pounds off.
Yeah, that evil doctor's scale.Well, I had to come face-to-face with that scale yesterday.
I put on my lightest clothes, ate my normal food (bagel, sandwich for lunch, etc.).

Once I got to the scale, I took my shoes off, because we all know shoes add 10 pounds.
I got up on the scale, held my breath, expected the worst.
*scraaaaape* Goes the metal weight. *scraa...* *thud*
That would be my jaw dropping.

110 Pounds.

What. The. Eff.

Yeah, I didn't want to be 130 like I thought I might be. I felt heavier recently. But I mean, 110?
Come on. Even I, the perpetual weight-loser, knows that that is too thin.
Last time I was there, I weighed 119 on their scale. And that was when I was weighing around 115 on the home scale. I do not even want to TOUCH that home scale now.

I've been eating! I had tacos for desert a couple of nights ago. TACOS. I had dinner, and then TACOS.
I had LOADED FRIES and a PULLED PORK SANDWICH for dinner last night.
For the record, if I HAVE to die, I want to die with one of those fries in my mouth.
Because they are heaven.

Anywho, how in the WORLD did I get down to 110 pounds? I've never weighed that! Even when I was born I was... okay, 11 pounds 7 ounces, but still! For a baby, I was huge!
My doctor gave me the whole speech about how I need to be eating calories because I'm working now and burning more than I eat, yada yada.
But how can I eat any more? I eat like a garbage disposal as it is.

I guess it's a task I'm willing to conquer... bring on the food.Halloween Candy, doctor's orders.

There will be no spoilers for the movie, so you can feel confident in your decision to continue reading my brief review.
Because we all know my review is the only one that really matters.

I really enjoyed the movie. I felt it was a bit slow in some parts. The actors took too long to answer a question, or stared into the camera longingly for a little bit more time than they should have.
The score, while better than the first one, was used a bit too much to cover up the fact that CERTAIN actresses *cough*kristen*cough* can't act past the whole "pouty" face. That's seriously her only face.2 1/2 hours of that face did wear just a little bit.
That being said, the quality was much higher than the 1st movie's.
You could tell the budget was higher, and you could also tell that the director actually knew what he was doing.
Chris spun the camera around a little too much. I got dizzy during a few scenes. Catherine Hardwicke did that a LOT during the first movie. He at least lightened up on it.

Things didn't feel as awkward during parts that were awkward in Twilight. It flowed just a bit better. There was more comedy. ACTUAL comedy. Not an awkward chuckle.
Instead of feeling it had to be this "edgy" movie, like the bane of my existence Catherine HardICan'tDirect, Chris made this the romance that the books are.
Oh, and he followed the books a LOT closer than HardISuckBad. A couple things were tweaked, but other than that, it followed extremely close.

See? No spoilers in sight.
And that was my opinion.
I hope Chris gets to direct the 4th one. Just please, cut back on the long awkward stares. It gets annoying.

For Those of You That Are Wondering...

It Was Epic.
(more tomorrow, since it's late)

Tuesday, November 17, 2009


The ONE CLASS that I DESPERATELY NEED in order to graduate on time was full when I tried to register.
I called my teacher and begged and pleaded for him to sign me into the class. I'm seriously hoping he'll do it. He told me he would before, but I'm probably not the first one to ask.

Honestly, I am so sick and tired of the incompetence that is my school.
Financial aid? Incompetent. Says you have to be TWENTY-FOUR before you can file your aid without your parents. Yeah, we'll see about that. You cannot legally tie someone to their parents past 18. At least not forcefully.

Counselors? They don't know JACK SQUAT. Even the teachers admit that. There's only one counselor that I like. It's a man. That's all I'll say.

You're better off coming to me. I've had 3 people come back to me to ask me questions about stuff that I'm not even a part of. Because I actually KNOW THE ANSWER.
Can you tell that I'm mad?

But back to my rant on incompetence. Knowing full well that a trillion people log on to register on "priority registration" days, our school is too stupid to upgrade their servers. The entire server crashed. So there went MY "priority" day.
At least I got my other 3 classes. Just this one radio class is really making me angry. I literally need it.

On a better note, I get to see New Moon tomorrow! Get to see my boyfriend!Judge us all you want. OUR LOVE IS PURE.

Christmas Shopping

I already did all of my Christmas shopping for the year.
I took the liberty of spending $30 on myself... because I'm worth it.
Loreal told me so.

For Shelby and Anna I bought:
Pet cactus'! Lay off, I don't have a lot of money to go around. They're really neat. You never, ever have to water them. The gel that they're placed in keeps them alive. Just gotta put them in the sun for a little while each day. You can leave them as a cellphone charm.
I think they're awesome.

For Anne Marie I got:For my little vampire lover I got a pack of blood energy drink. She also plays Dungeons and Dragons all the time, so I got her the little necklace with the DnD dice in it that you can take out to play with.

For Drew I got:A tin of Yugioh cards (Black Rose Dragon)... (I bought one for myself, too.) They don't sell them in stores anymore, so I knew it'd be special. I also got him a year subscription to Shonen Jump magazine. Then I bought him a new binder for his cards, since he filled his other one. (Once again, bought one for myself, too. I filled mine up a while ago.)

For my parents I bought... well, I spent $60. But that's all I'm saying, since I never know if my mom will look at the blog.
But pretty much, Shelby, Drew and Anna all know what they're getting because I really didn't think it was a big deal.
And Drew strong armed me to tell him what I got him for his birthday (Dec. 2) and for Christmas. So I just obliged.

Doing my Christmas shopping I realized I seriously don't have any friends. I sat there going through my head of what to buy... parents, shelby, anna, boyfriend, anne marie.
Nope, that's it.
I still blew through $200 though. But it was worth it. I love my friends. And obviously my boyfriend. Spoiled little bastard.

My (Long) Day

Yesterday started at 7 am, when I had to get up and get ready for work.
That's something I'll never get used to. Having to get up so early 4 days a week.
I used to struggle to get up early even a couple of days.

I went to work... worked. Then at 5:00 I met up with my friend Anna and we went to a communications meeting. Ended up converting her to becoming a Journalism major. Pretty funny actually.

We left and went to the casino to go bowling. I kept telling her that I had a feeling I was going to die in her car that night. She's a perfectly fine driver... it was just a hunch.
We got to the parking garage at the casino, and suddenly panic set in. Looking at the ramps going up in the parking garage, I realized...
"Anna, why are those arrows only pointing DOWN?"

Turns out the up arrows were just faded. But still. TERROR.

After that minor heart attack, we went bowling. We shared lots of laughs.
I threw the ball straight into the gutter with such force it almost bounced right back out... I shouldn't be allowed to throw heavy things.

Then we went to the arcade. The second we walked in, I saw a stuffed cookie monster plushie that I had to have. Sound familiar?
Let me remind you."I HAVE TO GET THE TWEETY".

So we shoveled money into the machines, got tokens, and started testing the games to see which ones cashed out the good tickets.
The cookie monster was 750 tickets. We wound up with...

We went up to the prize counter, handed him the ticket, and he said we had 500. It was nice of him to round it up. We asked him what we could get, and he said ANY of the stuffed animals.
My goal was complete! But that meant Anna wouldn't get anything...
He walked out of the back room with a cookie monster AND an elmo doll, and gave them to us.

Is it sad that the two of us, one 19 and one almost 18 year old, got so excited by Sesame Street dolls? And squealed like little girls?

But you know what? We did. And I'm STILL excited."C IS FOR COOKIE!"

Dancing is Evil

You see, I was watching "18 Kids and Counting" last night, and daddy Duggar let slip the family's views on dancing.
It's evil.
It causes promiscuity. Especially among the boys.
That's why the family is only allowed to listen to classic gospel. And they cannot dance.
"Even classic rock music can make the toddlers start bopping along".I don't see what makes dancing so promiscuous.
I mean sure, I may run around the house in my underwear doing my best Cameron Diaz impression...But who DOESN'T do that?
Except the Duggars.

Yeah, sure, my moves may bring "all the boys to the yard". But is that so wrong?
My hip-shaking and hair-flipping isn't promiscuous in the least bit. I couldn't IMAGINE someone getting the wrong idea about me if I were dancing in my usual manner in public.
Especially in my underwear.

You want to know the real reason I think the Duggars won't let their kids dance?
They haven't heard Lady Gaga's song, because they were too busy listening to that gospel music. Her lyrics are POWERFUL, and they're missing out and depriving their kids of her genius!

Just Dance... gonna be okay, da da DOO DOO!

Come on, that's REAL gospel.
So Duggars, live a little. Daddy Duggar, take some time out of knocking up your wife every five minutes and DANCE. Cuz it's gonna be okay (dadaDOODOO).
(but seriously, you guys are crazy.)

Oh, and by the way. I'd like to know why instead of being at 1,000,000 followers like I should be, I've lost 2 in the past 2 days. Not cool people. It DOES bug me. And where are my comments!?
I think ninjas are involved... I have to investigate.
