List of things the "ack" about:

Number 1: 10 page paper due next week.
Number 2: Discussion boards to finish up.
Number 3: Two statistics tests to go before the semester is done.
Number 4: I gotta get started on my admission stuff for grad school next fall.
Number 5: GRE on Saturday... no pressure or anything, it's just the test that will decide if I can get into grad school...

Ok, yea, so, I'm sufficiently stressed!

What's scrapbooking? I don't even remember...

But I will in 2 weeks when I go to my friend!!! Yay, Jen! And, even better, I'm going to bring your stuff! Because I've completely given up on making it to the post office. It's just not going to happen. Let's put that dream to rest! :)

Thanks for loving me anyway, girl! See you SOON!!!

I don't know anymore

I am watching You've Got Mail and there is a line in it where Joe is writing an email to Kathleen and he says, "Do you ever feel that you've become the worst version of yourself?" Sometimes I feel like I have.

On an completely different note (because I'm not discussing the above anymore right now), I am amazed by new products out for kids. With Christmas coming up quickly, we are bombarded by commericals and advertisements, even with our economy in the shape that it's in. One example of a quite amazing new product that I have recently seen is the Crayola Magic Light Brush. Really?? How is this possible. I must see this in real life to understand how it works. Because I am slightly confused and amazed by the commercial on TV. So obviously the advertisement works, right? But who am I going to by it for? I don't have kids, and probably buying that for myself would be a little odd. Plus, if I am going to spend money on something (which I'm not doing), it would be on other things. Perhaps a new pair of boots or a new iPod nano. My iPod is broken. That was a sad day when I realized that. Music is such a huge part of my life. Any given day, my mood is reflected by my music choice. And sometimes, I just want to sing. So I do.

Friday morning was one of the worst mornings of my life. I left my house at about 6:15 or 6:20, like I always do. I probably went about 5 or 10 over the speed limit on the highway, like I always do. I pulled into the parking lot, like I always do. And then I did something that I never do. That I have never done. I did this:

For some reason, my mind was completely somewhere else, and I "failed to stop" in time to avoid an accident, as my ticket says... and I hit another car. That is not a good way to start the day. I didn't make it into work to actually take care of my patients until about 8:30. So Friday was not a good day. But Friday night was better. I went to my friend's house and hung out and had a great time.

Yesterday was OK, too, I guess. Last night we went to a friend's house and watched the UFC fight.... yea... definitely never watched that before and oh my goodness. Those boys are not playing. It was one of the most brutal things I've ever seen. The boxing and kicking I don't mind so much. But when one guy is down on the mat and the other guy is just hitting the crap out of him... I don't know about that.

Anyway, one last thing to say. As passive agressive as I can be at times, I hate when other people are passive agressive, especially when it relates to me. And, for some reason, I feel like a lot of that has gone on lately. And I don't like it.

On that note, I'm going to bed.

I need to go to bed.

So it's like, 1:30, and I should be asleep. But I can't sleep. So I thought I would blog.

I wanted to scrap tonight and had no mojo. But I did have mojo to organize, so that's what I did instead. Now all my pics are nice and organized again and my area is straightened up for the most part. In the process of organizing and looking through my pics... I started about 2 mini albums and 2 LO's in my head. And I wonder why I can't get anything done.

Also, blogger won't let me put my whole answer to the "random question" thing that goes on your profile. Apparently, it has to be 400 characters or less, and I guess I rambled on a little too long. But I figured since I spent all that time and effort (not really) answering it, I should put it on here.

The question was: "What did you dream when you ate a spider while sleeping?"

And my answer is this: "Ok, so this is the scariest question ever. Spiders have got to be the worst thing in the world. And the statistic that we eat, like, 6 of them in our sleep in a year or our life or something (I forgot the actual numbers... I tried to block it out of my memory, but that never works for anything... especially the things you really wanna forget about, like stupid things that you've done in your life. Yea, why can't I forget that stuff? Ok, my ADD has gotten me off track...) So yea, I hate spiders, and I would like to think that that doesn't happen to me. My bubble will protect me from the spiders. But, in regards to the 'dream' part of the question, I do have really weird, very vivid, sometimes very exciting dreams most of the time. :)"

Maybe I can get some scrapping done tomorrow before the Panthers game since it's not til 4. We are playing the Raiders, so hopefully we should win. Hopefully. Alright, I'm off to bed! Have a good rest of the weekend everyone!

So, lots of new stuff since I actually blogged last time. I really don't count the last couple as actual blogs...

So the last couple weeks have been pretty great. Working a lot. Getting to scrap. School shiz... ah well, I'm not talking about school stuff cuz this is gonna be a HAPPY blog! :)

Last Thursday was potentially the greatest night of my life. I got to see NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK in concert. Go ahead and make fun. I don't care. It was the best concert ever and I'm not ashamed that I went. It was pretty amazing. I have no pics because I didn't want to take my big ol' Nikon D40 to the concert because I would have been too worried about that to enjoy the show. But I'm stealing the memory card from my SIL soon so I can upload the pics from it.

In other news... I've got some new LO's to show off!!! I think this makes 10 or 12 towards my diet? I should be keeping up better.

On a completely different note... I'm so ready for this election to be over! I'm so sick of hearing about it! Tomorrow's the big day! Go vote!

Hope everyone has a great week!


the randomness that is deah... thoughts, ponderings, and musings... with some scrapping thrown in
