Today… October 30, 2003

Filed under: Uncategorized — christinamyers @ 6:28 pm

I got to dissect a pig today…that was fun. It was a little baby pig, “fetal” they like to call it. Well, in my realm, we call them “fertile, fetal, ferral” pigs. I had to cut into the head this time…but I made Ricky my lab partner do that for me…I couldn’t handle cutting into the eye.

I also turned in the lab report that I have been trying to finish for two weeks. I think it turned out quite nicely. I found this free guide on the internet that was really helpful in making it turn out nice. We could have had a partner or two to do the lab, but I chose to do it by myself because of the problems that I have had in the past with partners not doing anything…I end up doing the entire thing alone, so why not just go ahead and get all the credit to begin with?

I proofread Russell’s composition essay/research paper. I have never read anything he’s had to write for school before, and I must say that he is an excellent writer. I think that he would make an excellent author if he so chose. His style is really easy to read. I liked it a lot.

I think that I am a bit sad about this weekend. While I get to see Love, it’s not for very long. I have to work well into Friday evening, when he comes into town, and ALL day Saturday (9AM-9PM). I feel kind of guilty for not being able to spend time with him…especially when he goes to so much trouble to come and see me. Then I find out that he and Lewis are leaving at about 12 on Sunday…this isn’t good. I was really looking forward to this weekend…and I still am, but I wish I had more time to see him and just be near him. Maybe he can come and eat lunch with me on Saturday…if he wants…probably be shopping with his grammy though.

Speaking of Saturday, I get to see Jake then. I hope that I can jsut kind of avoid the whole liking thing, but if he brings it up, I will have to tell him how things are going to have to be. I really don’t want to lose his friendship…it means a lot to me.

My bestest friend in the whole world thinks that God hates her. She hasn’t had much time for herself lately, and she feels like everyone is abandoning her for various reasons. I’m sure that I haven’t been much of a help. I have so much classwork and work that it’s hard to find time to see her…I really miss her though. I’ve seen Russell more lately than her and she lives only an hour away! I hope that I can see her over Thanksgiving.

Well, I have got to get on some work so that I’ll be ahead for next week.

-Everyone in the world SHOULD remember this, but they very often forget. Can anyone who reads this try not to judge, and just love? It really does make the world…and your mind…a better place.

I had everything for my paper today except a single staple. And SHE wouldn’t provide it.

Now I need one of these.

 

Stoned Willy October 29, 2003

My stomach hurts. Its from all the pizza I ate. Stone Willy’s has a good meat or cheese pizza. But not like anyone has ever heard of the place. Stone Willy’s Pizza is referred to as Stoned Willy’s Penis in some circles. But regardless, its a good time to have a stomach that hurts.

Can’t take Honors Programming Principles I. It doesn’t exist in the fall, only the standard class does. Oh well, no big deal. I guess it just ends up balancing out my schedule a little bit more as opposed to taking 18 hours this semester. I’ll be signing up for classes this Friday and my schedule will be up here so that there’s no confusion as to when I’m in class (IE, text message but please don’t call me then).

I finished my paper and, with some help from Nina, its looking a very nice.

Physics test tomorrow. I’m ready for it!

 

Everybody was kung foo fighting. This guy was loving…

Love is like a friendship caught on fire.
In the beginning a flame, very pretty,
Often hot and fierce,
But still only light and flickering.
As love grows older,
Our hearts mature
And our love becomes as coals,
Deep-burning and unquenchable.
~ by Bruce Lee ~

 

No, I’m the nut job, dammit! October 28, 2003

Its strange. Just when you think you have things figured out and you can do no wrong, you do. Either in life or in scholastics (because everyone knows a scholar doesn’t exactly live in the real world).Granted, these problwms could be the result of someone else or something else, it is regardless. The problems still revolve around your overall faults. This isn’t pesimism; its the truth. If you didn’t have a deficit in the area, you obviously wouldn’t have problems with it.

I got in a semi-fight with Nina which was my fault, and it of course was solved by me. If you have a fault, the first step is realizing and the second step is doing something about it. Those that blame psychological issues and things of that nature are just plain stupid. They don’t realize that those issues are simply sub-issues of the problem. They are not, in fact, hindering you from stopping. You can just as easily get help for those issues as you can for something else. So, again, I became better from it.

I have a deficit in Physics as well. I barely got by with getting my pre-test in before I was to be graded with a poor grade. So, obviously, I need to work a bit harder in this area. I need to put more and quicker effort into that area. Luckily, I got away with it this time; next time I might not be so lucky.

However Calculus yields good results. I made a 96 on the latest test. The class average was a 76. BOOM baby.

Everything seems to be progressing well. As long as I keep these thoughts in my head, I’ll always be on the top of my game.

 

Nut job….

I have come to the conclusion that I am a real whack-o. I mean, I think I have begun to make things up to start fights just so everything won’t be as perfect as it is. I am one smart cookie…let me tell ya.

Anyway…I had a good day in class. Biology was about as fun as it can be when you’ve already been through the book that you are using for the class in high school…but I have learned not to be too cocky about it…always seems to come back and bite me.

I am frustrated with this lab that I have to do. I can’t seem to find the motivation to finish the stupid thing…but I better before it’s due on Thursday!

I slept extremely well last night. Don’t know why…but I have a feeling that I know who is responsible (you know who you are :->). It was nice to sleep soundly and comfortably…even though it was without my fave sleep buddy.

The weekend cannot arrive soon enough. I cannot wait to see my love and spend some quality time with him. The whole long distance thing is working out quite nicely. I am surprising myself a lot with the dedication I have to making this work…I know it’s worth it.

Although I have been keeping up with this journal quite well, I feel that I have been neglecting my home journal. This is a great place to share thoughts and get feed-back, but some things are best kept private…you know?

Well, that’s it.

It’s not fair… October 27, 2003

Filed under: Uncategorized — christinamyers @ 2:09 pm

Why is it that a guy can’t just be friends with a girl? Why does he have to grow to like her as more than that? I will never get that. I wish that it had not happened to me.

My buddy Jake has made it quite apparent in recent weeks that he likes me as more than a friend…and along with flat out telling me this, he has invited me to countless parties and out to lunch. Thing is…he knows that I am involved with a wonderful man…Russell…who is quite irritated by all of this. And I understand…I am too.

It all started about a year ago when Jake was hired to replace one of our employees who was going away to school. At first he kind of scared me. He had the Ramones thing going on and wasn’t very talkitive…unlike me who talks to anyone and everyone who will listen…so I avoided him. Then he cut his hair and got over his shyness and we began to talk more. We actually became decent friends.

Over time, I grew to like him as more than a friend…so I did some investigative reporting and found out what he thought of me on that level…not good. he said that I was a ‘nice’ girl, but that he wouldn’t date me, so I moved on and began to only view him as a friend. Which, in the end, turned out great.

Jump to present…this past Saturday was going well. I chatted with Jake as usual and things seemed fine…until lunch. He asked me if I wanted to go to lunch with him, then to save face he claimed that it was because that he knew that I didn’t have a car. I declined and thought that it was cute. Then, later that day, he flat out told me that he liked me. I had never been in that position before, so I didn’t know what to do…so I made up and excuse and left.

Other than that, things are well. I haven’t been sleeping very well lately. Why? I don’t know. I hope it changes though, because I am becoming less motivated to do anything because I am tired.

Classes are going well…as expected. I can’t wait until this weekend..I get to see my love…yeah! That’s all for now!
