A little bit of humor...

Saw this posted in a author's blog that I have been watching, 'cause I love her books so. It's just a bit of humor in a time when I really do need to smile and not worry about what can happen .....

A long overdue break

Finally - I get a break from school. And a much needed one at that. Sure, I don't mind the fact that we don't get very much time off with my school and everything, but having three months on non-stop schooling, getting a week off, and then returning for two and a half weeks really took its toll on me.
I could've cared less about going back to school after a week off from three months of non-stop college. But - I went back, finished my classes, and now I'm rewarded with approximately a month off to spend with Rob, and also to fly up and see my family.
Yet - I will complain. I've only gotten three of my grades back so far, I'm waiting for three more. I've got an A, a C, and a C+. And that's all I can see. Dammit, I want to see the rest of my freaking grades! It doesn't help that I'm beating myself up over getting another C this semester - but it was a fairly tough semester. More than once Rob saw me stressing out to the point were I was crying. But, it'll be a waiting game to see those grades. I just hope they show sometime before I start my next semester.
As for other, un-stressing news, I'm certainly not going to have many presents for people at all this year. I've got my Mom, my Dad, and my sister - Rob's getting a scarf I'm knitting for him, and his sister Dawn is getting that cross-stitch baby register that's still not finished. =( I feel really bad for not getting other people presents, but I'm in the switch between two families, and I also cannot really afford presents this year. Besides, for me -- I'm not one to receive presents on Christmas. Sure, its fun to get them, but I prefer to spend time with family than get a t-shirt that I might not wear that often. The only present I want this year is to spend time with my Rob (which I'm certainly getting) and to see and spend New Years with my cousins, sister, and friends. That's all I want, really. Just to see people and spend time with them. I hope people can understand that.
Besides, after New Years at the RK house, I was hoping to take Rob to that really nice Japanese restaurant in downtown Portsmouth - and possibly take my cousins along. =) That way everyone can have a nice dinner with Sushi, or Udon, or whatever they want as well as spending time and making memories for the later years. =)
But - I've got to stop typing, I've got a hair appointment to go to at three today. I'm getting my already short hair chopped shorter! Yay! No more hair on the back of my neck. =)
So, it's off to clean of my car and then find my way through this crazy city of Omaha to my hair appointment.

Happy Holidays everyone - I'll write again sometime soon! Promise!

Just a test post

Let's see if I can really do this LJ cut thingy...
did it workCollapse )

Another bloody episode....

So, this morning, at about 4:30ish AM....I had another 'cyst' problem. I thought I was curing it with the HBC! Maybe - just maybe, this one was a fluke....but it prevented me from picking the kids up and taking them to school like I was supposed too. And I feel really horrible about that. It also prevented me from going to school as well - which isn't the best thing in the world. So now, I am sore, and still in a little pain as I'm sitting here and typing. I had to e-mail my professors and Helen and apologize....which sucks. And I feel bad for Robbie having to see me in so much pain...and then sore and stiff and unable to move very much afterward.
Damn this stupid cyst thingy....I hate it.

Random House moment

All I have to say is.........

House and Cuddy - ABOUT BLOODY TIME!!!

Eeeeeee!!

XD

Anyway - as I was watching that particular moment of House, I threw up my hands in the typical 'touchdown' position and screamed 'YES!'. The girl who was watching House with me gave me such a weird look, and then laughed out loud.
LOL.

I wonder what's going to happen between those two....I've waited FOUR seasons for this stuff to happen, so now I want it to happen, darn it!

Eh - I've got to go back to doing homework.

I just felt like living that moment again. =P

YES!!!

Epic Fail Posting

Okay, so yes - I haven't posted in like, a month. I'm sorry everyone - I just haven't felt like posting...and really, my life isn't that exciting. But I felt like posting now, just because I want to procrastinate an essay, and also because I feel like talking to people.
As for the past month or so - here's the lowdown. I'm now living in Omaha, NE, with the Love of my life and his family. I'm also still going to school at CUNE(Junior year, yeah!) and soon I'll be finished with it. Other than those two things - not much major has gone on.
I'm gradually getting ready for a few conventions coming up - Nebraskon and Naka-kon. Also, there's Rob's famous Halloween party that he's holding on the 24th of this month - which I'll be attending, and helping set up and such. (I live in that house. Of course I'm supposed to help.) In fact, I'm supposed to make a 'Honda Accura' cake.
Really?
I mean, seriously, Joe wants me to make a car shaped cake for a Halloween party?

Oh boy.

If I get pictures of this monstrosity before it gets demolished by drunk people, I'll try and post a few up here. It's gonna be one hell of a project - I just hope I can do it well.
As for my Halloween costume - it's going to be Dr. Mrs. the Monarch, from the Venture Brothers on Adult Swim. Rob is going as the Monarch - we just thought it'd be cute if we match.

Hmmm....let's see.....anything else interesting? Oh, yeah, I'm on antibiotics.
Yep.
And I'm starting to have an allergic reaction. It's the last day I'm on them, so it's nice that I didn't react until now. But still.....I hate doctors.

Well - I'm going to go procrastinate some more and play with my neopets.

Later.

Random things and such.

So my days have been uneventful lately.
I'm suffering from quite an upset tummy right now - because I started Loestrin 24 FE, an HBC.

Besides the occasional not feeling well and other house chores and nonsense, I've just been trying to pack a little each day before I leave for Nebraska for good. =P

Not much has been going on, so there isn't too much to write about.

So it's all for nothing

That's right.
I just heard from my Dad today that he wants me to stay until the weekend before I have to go to school in order to spend time with my mother. Giving me, oh, lets see here, ONE DAY with Rob before I go back to school.

Does he not understand.....I WANT to spend a week with my Robbie?

Apparently not.

Apparently the fact that I've exhausted myself by working seven days a week is not enough - apparently the fact that I've been separated from my Rob too long doesn't work - apparently the fact that they are going to see me for Christmas isn't good enough either.

It's all because of Mother, and her well being.

Oh, just FUCK THAT!!!

For once, just for once, allow me to have something that I want more than anything right now.

Allow me to have time with the one person that I love.


And I can't even get that.

I just had to do this.....

BOOK MEME!!!!!


1. One book that changed your life.
    A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. After I read that book, I just had a great appreciation for the individuals that we ourselves grow into and become - and the lessons that life gives us (no matter how weird) in order to become those individuals.

2. One book that you've read more than once.
    Gena Showalter's The Pleasure Slave. Don't ask me why I read it so often....I think the reasons might scare you.

3. One book you'd want on a desert island.
   
Stephen King's The Eyes of the Dragon. First really, really good fantasy book I read.

4. One book that made you laugh.
   
The Last DragonLord by Bertin. It's that stupid horse, Shan, that makes me laugh out loud whenever I read that book.

5. One book that made you cry.
   
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I cried non stop through the last four chapters of that book.

6. One book that you wish had been written.
   
I actually wish for two books to have been written. One, that the anime HellsinG would have been written as a novel, and two, that a sequel to the Kite Runner would have been written.

7. One book that you wish had never been written.
    Oh, dear. Ummm.....that would be - as horrible as it may sound - Moby Dick. Yes, I know it's a classic, and yes, I know it's one of the great literary achievements of all time (I AM an English student here) but still. Could the book possibly get any more boring??

8. One book you're currently reading.
    Traitor's Moon - third book of the Nightrunner series by Lynn Flewelling.

9. One book you've been meaning to read.
   
Eldest - second book of the Eragon series. Just never got around to it. Yet. One day I will........I will.

Bonus question: What book scared you the most?

    Oooo.....that would be the Amityville Horror. Never, EVER read that book at night. Even with the lights on - it WILL scare you.




'Twas lots of fun.
Like, lots.  =P

Now you go do it.
Or do I have to tag people??

So my day was...

A little frustrating.

But after I cried to Rob on the phone, and talked to my Daddy some more, I found out that I don't have to worry about as many things as I thought I had to worry about.
That made me feel a lot better.
And.....I might have a better Job than my current one.
Which pays a lot more than my current one.
Which is really, really good.

That made me happy too.


And....the new Nightrunner book is coming out in about 30 days as well.

Which means I have to finish Traitor's Moon first.
That'll take me about a week.


It's nice that I'm doing a little better.
