      OUTTA HEEREEE

      I came back quick. Breezed through some updates. Made a couple comments.

      It was a nice break.

      Very, very nice. I don't plan on coming back anymore. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why. I worked so god damn hard to avoid anymore drama. I quit a lot of things that I enjoyed doing and I haven't spoken to some good friends in awhile so I could stop hurting both of us. And it got dragged right onto this site and it hurt me all over again and I really didn't appreciate it.

      I'm not so dramatic to say that I'm NEVER coming back. Its just that...things have been going pretty well for me lately. I want it to stay that way. And if that means no more Red vs Blue, no more Facebook, no more World of Warcraft ever then....so be it. Though actually I played me some Death Knight this weekend >:3

      I just thought that if I didn't come back, I should maybe let some of the cool people on here know.

      No hard feelings, dudes! Life rolls on. I'm not really Ms. Angry anymore. Just Ms. Disappointed.

      I love ya'll so much though. You should all add me on some instant messengers. I will talk to you there because you are all very cool people.

      I finished my first embroidery thing tonight! It...it isn't very consistent. It looks fine, but if you get close you notice that I have no real consistency with stitch-length or anything... Before I start making stuff that people want, like a Zune cover for Aimee or a handkerchief for Adam, I want to keep practicing on other things. What should I make next? Pillow case? Tea towels? Aprons? Someday I hope to embroider a whole tablecloth for myself, but that is a ways off.

      Had to march outside today, and I got frostbite on my toes and my fingers. When I walked to my car it felt like I was walking on pads of cloth rather than my actual feet. I swear, my fingers are still swollen.

      I have a nasty cold, which makes me miserable. Medication doesn't really help that much, but for some reason the night version really knocked me out last night. I woke up with a book in my hand, the candle still burning, and all my lights on at 7 in the morning...and the only reason I woke up is because I had to pee so bad. Drinking all those liquids, man.

      Other than than, I'm pretty rad, as is usual.

      Went to a frat Halloween party last night.

      First off, we walked over a mile in high heels to get to the frat party. But we got honked at or whistled at 6 times, so we know we looked good.

      First hour SUCKED. We got a lot of nice comments from people on our costumes, but no one we really knew was doing anything. People were taking pictures of us a lot, though, I'll probably be finding Luigi pics all over. We went in a pack of 4 girls, and Rebecca, who went as a movie star, was hitting on this Spencer idiot the whole time, and Jess, a housewife, just hung out with her boyfriend...Rebecca's ex was in the frat, so she was trying to make him jealous. So it was just me and Therese standing around outside talking to some really boring people.

      Eventually, things started picking up and Therese and I got a lot more popular. Mostly I think it was because my friend Andrew finally found me and kept sending guys over to meet me and Therese. We even got invited upstairs to drink the actual good alcohol, not just the Bud Lite they were serving on the main level. People ain't allowed upstairs unless they really know the guys, so that was flattering. They gave us a tour of the rest of the place. I wasn't really a fan of the whole thing, since girls were sort of paraded around up there, like "Look at this hot chick we got to come up!"

      That probably was the point, we were supposed to sleep with them in exchanged for like, Everclear and stuff, but whatever. We got to view the secret ancient ritual of all the frat brothers taking a shot every hour to celebrate the brothers that couldn't be there on that night....fraternities are cheesy, man.

      The most popular pick-up line used on me was usually to hand me a beer and ask, "Why aren't you drinking?" You'd think the lack of wristband identifying me as 21 would be enough, but they wanted the whole story. I usually just handed them the beer back and said, "Not my style."

      It really stank when people didn't dress up. No fun at all!

      Frat parties realllllly aren't my scene; I imagine they are a lot more fun if you actually drink. Still, it was very flattering. Therese and I each got multiple offers to be walked home, but we didn't want to give off the wrong impression. So many pick up lines and compliments though. I heard several guys say that they preferred the sexy Mario sisters to all the naughty schoolgirls, which Therese and I found hilarious. It was a good way to get my mind off of things, and no hangover in the morning!

      My other room mate, Caitlyn, was here all weekend with her friends, and her friends are ANNOYING. This girl has the most annoying, high pitched, squealing laugh and she is just constantly shrieking about something ridiculous, like how cool Britney Spears' outfit is. I'm not joking. I wish they would leave so much. Pretty much about the only really bad thing about the weekend, I'd say.

      I have to work tonight, but I like money. Also, it gives me another reason to procrastinate cleaning the bathroom, but most of my homework is done.

      I hope all of you that can vote will vote on Tuesday, if you haven't already.

      I'm going to go shower, Caitlyn's friends are finally done...they each shower like twice a day, Caitlyn better pay for more of the hot water heating bill.

      I got to go home this weekend for fall break and it kinda sucked. A lot of my family was home for hunting weekend as well, and I'm pretty much the only person aside from my brothers in my entire family who has had a bad break up. I'm still in love with a guy who no longer loves me, and no one seemed to know what to do with me. I only eat about one meal a day, and I spent most of my time in my room or going on walks. And then when I was around, people just stared at me. I'm really glad that I'm not going anywhere this weekend. I need some time to think and calm down about...everything.

      My grandma had me start up some embroidery. She said I needed something else to do instead of dwell on how much I hurt, and embroidery is pretty easy, in the beginning at least. Most embroidery patterns are really cheesey, like flowers and wolves and crap like that, but some places on the internet sell some much more interesting patterns. I embroidered some pretty flowers while we watched Iron Man on Monday night.

      I chopped off all my hair. Well, not all of it, but over half of it. I would post a picture, but internet is not working at my apartment today, and I'm posting this at the library. I'll try and post one soon, though. I'm not really sure about my hair yet. I kind of like it, but I also know it was a sort of spur of the moment I hate my life and the way I look sort of decision. Hair grows back, though.

      I brought a soda here to the library, but Drake removed all the little cubby study desks, so I think I'll get in trouble if I open a soda and everyone sees me. Once I opened a bottle of Sprite and it fizzed all over me here and I was way embarrassed.

      I swear, I misspell embarrass every time on my first try. When will I learn?

      ALSO this new set up...I'm gone for a week and look what I come back to.

      Say nice things to cheer me up. Or post pictures of kittens! Both will work.

      I don't really like to leave up sad journals for very long. It just brings everyone down!

      Moving on in life, I am going to talk about other things.

      So our Biology Lab has us making our own experiments up and running them ourselves with the help of two of our lab instructors. They are pretty young guys, one is just a senior, and the other has only been out of college for a year. They wander around and help out the class, but they obviously tend to gravitate towards girls. Luckily, I'm in one of the few all girl groups, so we get pretty good help. ; )

      Our experiment is actually not going that well, though. We were looking at one kinds of soaps are the best at killing E. Coli, and we have a lot of trouble diluting the soap enough that it isn't obstrusive to our spectrophotometer and yet still kills the bacteria. Even though the soap was too thick to work in our spectrophotometer, even with the help of out lab instructors, we still got the general readings correct in the sense that hand soap kills stuff really well, dish soap...doesn't.

      Another group in a different lab is doing something similar with bodywash...apparently, Old Spice works really well! Good for you to know, boys.

      I plan on going to a Halloween party this year, but we still can't figure out costumes and it makes me sad. We wanted to go as a big group, and we planned on going as the Spice Girls, but the person who was going to go as Baby Spice decided not to and wants to go as Apples to Apples cards instead....and I wanted to do Ghostbusters, but that isn't sexy enough for some of our friends. We may have to settle and just go as individual things...I might still go as a ghostbuster because that would be so easy to do. I might try to convince my friend to be Mario and I'll be Luigi...or Weegee (lolno).

      Go ahead and suggest stuff! I haven't been to a Halloween party in a long time.

      I'm trying to avoid sexy video game characters because this a very nerdy frat party I'll be going to and I do not want to be harassed.

      Our upstairs neighbors put a hole in the wall the other day and it stinks because the landlord came to us and was all insinuating stuff and I basically had to tattle so I wouldn't get in trouble.

      I have a very very busy next couple of months ahead of me. I know people are trying to keep me busy, that is part of it, but yeesh. I only have 2 weekends until finals where I don't have something planned, like a game or a trip or something.

      My room mate is blowdrying her hair in the bathroom with the door open and it is LOUD wtf.

      EDIT: I MADE MY WII FIT GOAL FUCK YEAHHHHHHHHHH

      Actually, I lost 2 more pounds than I was supposed to. FUCK YEAH STRESS AND WEIGHTLOSS WOOOOOO!

      My mom has wanted Wii Fit for a very very long time and keeps bidding on eBay for super expensive ones. I was a good daughter and scoured Des Moines for one at 8:00 in the morning and found her one.

      Since I live so far away from her, she said I could play it until I can bring it to her, but Wii Fit is killing my self-esteem. I KNOW I HAVE NO BALANCE. MAYBE YOU SHOULD TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THAT I HAVE SMALL FEET AND AM RATHER TALL!?!

      Also, I try to work out occasionally, but man I forgot how hard push-ups are when you have weenie arms. That push-up side thing killed me. It gave me "Couch Potato" rating. At least I'm pretty good at the yoga stuff.

    • A Vicious Cycle

      I am having room mate issues.

      It was bound to happen, I mean, 4 girls in a 3 bedroom apartment with only one bathroom and a kitchen so tiny it can only hole 2 people? Yeah.

      We worked out the bathroom issues early on (you are not allowed to put on make-up or do your hair in the bathroom in ordinary situations - exceptions include, but are not limited to, room mate sleeping in bedroom or no one else is in the house), but the dishes have become a real problem.

      Therese and I have no problem doing dishes immediately after use, though we will both readily confess that we sometimes wait until the evening.

      Our other two room mates, however, are really problematic. Rebecca usually will only do her dishes every other day. Caitlyn will usually do her dishes daily, except when her boyfriend is around. If her boyfriend is around for the weekend, she uses twice as many dishes, but cannot spare the time from her boyfriend to do the dishes. (Note: this boyfriend is here every weekend) Caitlyn WOULD usually do her dishes on Monday, but by then, there is a stack of dishes made up of both Rebecca's and Caitlyn's dishes, and Caitlyn does not like to touch other people's food. So Caitlyn says she will do her dishes once Rebecca's is out of the way, but Rebecca can't remember which dishes are hers, and says she wants to wait until Caitlyn does hers. This process will usually last until Wednesday or Thursday when we convince Rebecca to do at least half the dishes to be fair, and Caitlyn has to accept that she might have to touch someone else's food.

      Still, this process is frustrating because it is really difficult to clean dishes for the rest of us until they get this done.

      Suggestions? I don't want to be passive-aggressive because Caitlyn is the most passive-aggressive person ever and will completely FLIP OUT if you try to step up to her.

      My only idea is if it lasts too long, I'm going to confiscate all the dishes and leave everyone one cup, plate, bowl, etc., to work with and if they don't clean it, then they don't get any more dishes, but Caitlyn is already buying an excessive amount of new dishes so that she doesn't have to wash her dirty ones, so my plan might not work.

      Well, I bought a faceplate on clearance for like a dollar around Christmas time, planning to paint something Oblivion-based for Liz. But Christmastime was like the time of not finishing anything, so I just always still had it. I pulled it out a while ago and decided to paint it. And in case I get bored of it, I still have the original faceplate I guess? To be honest, I did paint something else first and then scratched it all off and painted it again. But I like it this time. And scratching that other one off took a long time, but it had just gotten way too thick to paint over.
