Pet Peeves...I'm venting!

I feel like I have a few pet peeves right now, and I have nothing else to do so I'll share them with you all!

*I hate when I go to the gym, and I'm only there about half and hour, and as I'm leaving everyone who works there says, "You didn't work out long", "Or short workout today, huh?" Well I mean at least I went, right? Grr! Just something that really aggrevates me...

*Bad Drivers. I am sure that Tallahassee has the highest population of bad drivers anywhere. I cannot STAND when people lolligag in the left lane... MOVE OVER! Especially on seems like I always am surrounded by unknowledgable drivers. FRUSTRATING!

*The price of gas. I mean c'mon, I know it's going down a little bit, but seriously, it was &1.99 when I started driving...I miss those days.

*The price of a Starbucks drink. I LOVE starbucks Frappucinos but I can no longer afford them. It's either a frappucino, or a gallon of gas, take your pick.

*Being broke! School is keeping me from working more, and I have no money:( I might be looking for a weekend job too come fall...Pooey on that. Beer cart girl at the golf course anyone?

*Working out, eating better, and gaining weight and my clothes not fitting, as in, too small, what's up with that?

*Disney not getting here soon enough. 14 more days!

*Not getting to see my girls every Wednesday:( Glad Erin's coming back though!

*writing a whole entire blog and then my computer messing up before its posted...AHHH!!

Anywho, my life really isn't bad, I mean it's actually great, I should not be complaining, but here I am, doing it anyway:)

The Dark Knight

Okay let me start by saying I only went to see this movie because David wanted to see it, but it turned out to be pretty good! It was pretty long, but I was prepared since I had heard that it would be, but it was a little confusing to me too...too many different plots going on in one movie for me...ALSO, it was pretty violent, maybe even scary with the creepy joker. Not that I am against violent movies, but it seems like Batman is a superhero that small boys can look up to, but now it's just so violent and I don't think that if I had 10 year old boys, I would take them to see it...but then again, that's just my opinion. Heath Ledger was a WICKED joker. He was such a versatile actor and it's weird to watch this creepy character in the movie and know that he is dead in real life...sad:(

Anywho, enough about batman, I'm just happy it's Friday! 19 days to Disney, and we are going scalloping tomorrow so hope for good weather! Hope everyone has a great weekend:)

It's Official, I'm a 4 eyes!

My eye appt. Tuesday went well, and I also found out that I'm not going crazy, that I really did need glasses. Turns out I have Astigmatism, and I am near sighted (where you can't see so great far away). So Tuesday it was pretty much too late do go out and search for some glasses, so Wednesday, my Mom, Dad, and myself went to pick me out some frames. I found some I liked, (YAY!) and they were ready for pickup yesterday! Today is my first full day with them, and I LOVE them. I knew my vision wasn't perfect, but I didn't realize how much *sharper* & *clearer* it could be. I am finding myself smiling when I am driving because I "test" myself to try and read stuff far away, and I can't and then I slide my glasses on and I can see it! Please don't think I'm weird, but it is just that, WEIRD that I can see it! So anywho I am excited. Turns out I am going to be wearing them more than I thought though...I thought it would be pretty much just for class, but Doc said to wear them most of the time, and when I am looking at stuff more than 10 yards away. So tv, CHECK, driving, CHECK, class, get the picture. I really don't need them on while working on the computer and stuff, but it doesn't hurt and I really feel like it makes it a little clearer. So the next time you all see me, I will be embracing my new look, me with glasses. I was a little worried about what David would think of them, but he LOVES them! He said I look even more beautiful with them! SCORE! So I'm glad he likes them and I won't be a total turnoff, lol. (PS- I will put up a picture when I take one!)

Also, I am excited about tonight because it's College Night at Chic-Fil-A ($3 value meals anyone?) and we are going to see The Dark Night. Not really the movie I would have picked, but I've heard it's really good and David is dying to see it...So I'll post a movie review and a glasses picture soon!

Tattoo Fever

I am having it again. I want a tattoo sooo bad! I really really want one on my foot but I am still so worried about the future. Also, my Dad and David are completely against it. Although it is ultimately my decision, I still can't help but value their opinions. It's just that I have wanted one for about 3 years now but every now and then I get that "tattoo fever" where I want to go out and get one right then. The only thing that really worries me is about being able to cover it in the workplace. I know that it being on my foot wouldn't be too noticeable, but at the same time, any open shoe that I wore or capris would make it visible. I have no problem with this and I think as long as it isn't huge and obnoxious that it wouldn't be a problem, but you never know? I am scared to get one and then who knows if in the future I don't get "the job" because of a tattoo? I really don't think it would be that big of a problem and I know that nowadays they are becoming more and more acceptable, but I just worry...There is a new ink though that I found online called Infinitink that supposedly is as permanent as regular tattoo ink, but the removal is a one step process because the pigment of the ink bursts easily and is absorbed by the skin after one treatment of laser removal. Now I know what you're thinking, don't get a tattoo if you don't want it forever. And I wouldn't get it thinking "Oh I'll remove it in 10 years if I don't like it". I wouldn't be going into it with that idea at all, but it WOULD be nice knowing that IF for some reason some day it just didn't agree with me any longer or my life style, that the option to remove it would be available. So I don't know, but I think if I ever did decide to get one, it would definitely be with Infinitink...And I want one bad!
And NO, I wouldn't get the MOM tattoo, as much as I LOVE my mommy!

I Need New Ideas!

Well it's Friday and once again David puts the pressure on me...what do you want to do tonight? Now let me just tell you that he has asked me this question almost every single Friday night for the past 6 years. What is always my answer? "I don't know, we'll see." And guess what we end up doing almost EVERY Friday night? The mall or Target...boring, yes I know. It's just that we aren't party people, so clubs, parties, etc are out, and then it now costs $10 to go to a movie...that's out (i'm broke). And we NEVER have anything to do? I hate renting a movie and sitting at the house because I am at the house EVERY night of the week pretty much and the weekends are my days to get OUT OF THE HOUSE! I really want some new ideas of stuff we can do that is cheap, fun and DIFFERENT. I am sooo tired of hanging around the mall, especially when you have no money to buy anything! I am ready to go somewhere new, and do new things...I really wish we lived near the water. Like Ocean water...I could totally go for a margarita watching the sunset over the ocean tonight...What does everyone else do???

Why do I procrastinate??

I have Organic Test #3 this Wednesday and I planned to spend ALL day today studying, and guess what, I did none whatsoever. I am doing so good in this class this time around and I CAN'T blow it now. Granted I did do other homework, stuff that's actually due tomorrow, but I can't help that being home alone makes me want to sit in front of the tv, and be EXTRA lazy. I kept saying okay, after this show I'll study, then of course, it was well, after this show, I'll start for sure, and now it's 7:40, and I am even less motivated to do so! Grrr...I am so bad at time management...So I will for sure be studying all day tomorrow, PROMISE.

This is a little taste of what we're learning, so you can know why I avoid it at ALL COSTS:

Also, in case you hadn't heard, Stepping Stones, a local day care burned down in Tallahassee on Friday. Unfortunately a 4 year old little girl did not survive the fire. But the reason I say this is because two of the little kids I watched everyday last summer go to that day care, and their mom contacted me today to see if I wanted to watch the kids whenever I was available throughout the week while they tried to find a new daycare. So, I really hope this works out because I am available to work more at Electronet, but because of schedules between the 3 of us receptionists, the days have to be split up evenly, and I am making hardly ANY money. So keeping my fingers crossed because I already know the kids, and it's on my way home from school, and if anything it'd pay for a tank of just waiting to hear back from their Mom for the for sure go ahead!

Gained weight? Grr!

I am proud to say that I am still going to the gym and sticking to my deal! I am almost done with week 3 and I am actually starting to enjoy going. Take that back, I don't enjoy going, but at least it makes me feel a little accomplished! What bothers me though, is that I've been working hard, trying to eat a little less, and I have gained 4-ish pounds. Now I know that muscle weighs more than fat, and hopefully it's all muscle, but still, that is the total opposite of what i expected to see on the scale. But then again, that was right after lunch, and a full bottle of water, so maybe that was just food weight...I dunno, I just hope I get to a healthy size when this is over with, because my jeans that used to be baggy and comfy, are now T-I-G-H-T. And I really don't even care that much about actual poundage, I just want to be presentable in a bathing suit and not have a butt the size of Texas!

Here I am! FAR RIGHT-->

In other news, I went to the Dr. yesterday to have an overall skin check done. I have never been checked head to toe for suspicious spots/moles and that's what she did! I mean in-between-my-toes, and my scalp and everything...she gave up on my scalp though after she couldn't navigate through the thickness of it. So anywho nothing looked cancerous but she did suggest I have 3 moles taken off for precautions. She wanted to do them right then but I freaked out a little to have minor surgery right away when I thought I was only going in to be looked at. I mean I have to prepare myself mentally for stitches and cutting and I wasn't ready to do it yesterday. So i'll be getting cut on sometime soon, but one of the ones she wants to take off is on my chin! I'm worried about that one because the last mole I had removed on my leg left a huge scar and I don't want to become a SCARFACE if this one does the same!

Bonifay...won't need to go back!

So I had a good weekend with my fam on the lovely holiday weekend. Friday was an all day BBQ/pool party at my Aunt Sandra's. Yummy food, and good friends made for a good day (minus David who was working 17 hours at Tom Brown:( We ended the night perched at the neighborhood entrance with neighbors on golf carts for front row seats to Northwood's Firework show! Nothing like redneck firework spectators!! Then Saturday morning we got up and around 11 headed to Bonifay, Fl for Cole's baseball tournament. (Me, Mom, Dad, & Cole-David stayed home) Let's just say, I don't think I'll be returning to that po-dunk town. You could look both ways and see the whole thing! LOL. The tournament was basically a joke and a waste of my parents money but it was good just to hang out with my family, in one tiny hotel room...Needless to say I didn't get much sleep with my dad's snoring, his need for the AC to be on 60 degrees in a 10 by 10 foot room, and then of course there's the bodily functions of two grown men that add to the mix...LOL. But now I'm bummed that I won't get to go to next week's tournament which is going to be 7 days at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex! Oh well, work and school calls:( So I'll be all by my lonesome for the whole week, but I'll probably be camped out at David's since I get all paranoid being at my house alone at night!

Organic Quiz and Physics test this week...BOO!!

Short Week...

...and I'm excited! I don't have any plans for the 4th though and I am kinda bummed. My family should have been at the beach for the week, but Mom had to cancel about a month ago because Cole has a week baseball tournament coming up, and she didn't have the time at work for both. So anywho, Mom, Dad and Cole are leaving for Bonifay this wknd (more Cole baseball), and David is working all day Friday for the city, at Tom Brown. Now we are a family that ALWAYS celebrates the 4th, and as it's looking right now I'm gonna be allll allloonneee:( I am thinking about going with my folks, so maybe it won't be too lonely afterall...I don't know, I am just bummed that we don't have any big plans like we usually do. In other news, we only have aproximately 45 days til our (Me + David) week long trip at Disney! We are staying 5 nights at the Disney Caribbean Resort. We are soooo excited. Any Disney reminders get us sooo amped up! I CAN'T wait!!! Yippeee!!!
