Blessed…. November 24, 2004

Filed under: Uncategorized — christinamyers @ 8:53 pm

I am so blessed. I can’t thank the Lord above enough for the way that he has blessed my life, my family and me.

Thank you, Lord.

Ever have a dream that you were involved in a nuclear explosion or were blown up by one? I just did, not ten or twenty minutes ago. I wonder if that’s how the Japanese felt as they watched the bomb coming down in their cities. I wonder what really went through their head. What went through my head was “Goodbye.”

Today you’ve got a critical situation in which people can simply lie about a nuclear weapons program and cover it up and you’d never know until they were close. I’m not necessarily inferring that Iran has any sort of nuclear weapons interest as Colin Powell would suggest (in fact, I believe the other side has a story).

But I am wondering as to what extent our problems really are.

 

Dispelling Rumors, Cutting the Crap… November 22, 2004

Filed under: Uncategorized — christinamyers @ 4:45 pm

I’m completely tired. Tired of a job, tired of living in a precarious environment in which any day my car could blow up, my grades could go through the floor, my leg could break, or I could be fired for no reason at all. Although only one of those things has ever happened, I love knowing the others are around the bend.

I’m angry. I’m angry at stupid people that blame other stupid people for their stupid problems. STUPID! I’m angry that people can’t stand up for themselves — they don’t care to. I’m angry that they realize that even Napoleon had times in which he wasn’t in war — and thusly could be in one and still have plenty of his life for the rest of the world to get over it. Whatever that means.

Okay, on going to Georgia Tech over Georgia Southern Uni.: You’re not paying for a “title” and you’re not paying for a “name”. That’s a misnomer. How do you think they earned a name!? Honestly–did Jeb Bush, Jesus, or Bill Gates just say, “Hey, guess what, ‘gasou’ is less a caliber than ‘gatech'”. No. Think about it.

Life is a battle — get over it. From the time you wake up until the time you sleep is a battle — even sleeping can be a battle some times. You’re more than likely going to have a good amount of problems through the day so just accept it — keep your head on straight and keep your rapier sheathed until its time for defense [Bush].

I voted for Kerry. I knew he wouldn’t win. Take Sociology.

I believe we know everything when we can truly connect the words with the simply math. When we can create enough of a unified theory of the world that instead of taking the Math and Verbal sections of the SAT, you’re just taking the whole thing — I’d have gotten a 1190 on the “World” section.

Don’t think I’ll ever really enjoy living in a city. At least, not driving in a city. I should start taking MARTA.

 

Does anyone…. November 21, 2004

Filed under: Uncategorized — christinamyers @ 10:19 pm

…ever feel like they are being treated like a child? I can’t stand it. I am 19, granted I’m not 40 or anything, but I like to think that I can handle my own affairs without having someone to hold my hand and watch over me. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is driving nme nuts. It’s either one person or another. I think I just need to be left alone for once and not have someone tell me what to do. Grrrrr….this has been a flame out.

Grocery day… November 14, 2004

Filed under: Uncategorized — christinamyers @ 11:47 am

It’s grocery day again and the thought of making yet another list is daunting today for some reason.

I went to court on Friday morning. I wasn’t nervous really until the guy that hit me decided he had a vested interest in showing up…so he did. The entire time he, the judge, and I were talking, he had this stupid smirk on his face that just said to me, “I am doing a greater good to the community by making a 19-year-old poor college girl learn some ‘personal responsibility’ (those were his words at the time of the accident).” He was a real jerk. Half of the other people who had been involved in an accident didn’t have the other person show because the insurance companies were handling it already. The only ones who did show were the ones who hadn’t received any contact about their respective accidents what-so-ever. He was simply being malicious and cruel. According the judge, I am “Guilty as Sin” and now forced to pay $295 in fines, as well as remain on probation until Tuesday when I can finally go down and pay it (stupid filing).

Good note:
MY
brother, Paul Wallace, was on 96Rock on Friday jamming with Kenny Wayne Shepard. He won a contest, via my dad calling in, and got to go on air and played with KWS. It was SOOOOOOOO cool!! I was so proud of him. He and his friend also got 2 VIP tickets to see the band at EarthlinkLive. They got to hang out backstage the entire time and KWS’s manager (also his father) let Paul and his friend listen to the mix through the board and everything. He also got the set list. Not to mention KWS signed and played his guitar (a VERY nice and expensive Fender Strat that my parents bought him). KWS also signed his friends guitar. It was very cool. I know no one prolly heard him, but it was awesome for me.

Thought of the Day:”No, not really.”

 

Christmas!!! November 10, 2004

Filed under: Uncategorized — christinamyers @ 6:41 pm

For anyone who reads my journal regularly…anything except (…) in my title is special.

I realized something today that made me soooooo incredibly excited:

This will be me and Russell’s first Christmas together on our own.
To some this may not seem like a huge deal, but to me it is amazing. I was shopping for a Christmas tree for our apartment today. Yes, it is a FAKE tree. I am not a huge fan of pine needles, killing beautiful evergreens then throwing them on the side of the road, and fire hazards all rolled into one. I also like knowing that my tree isn’t going to be too big or too small or not have enough branches. I had real trees when I was younger, then I had pets and that idea left very quickly (cats like to sleep in trees…real or not). My best friend was so kind as to chastize my choice for a tree because SHE always has a real tree. I don’t care. My apartment. My money. My damn tree.
ANYWAY, back to what I was saying. It is so exciting to be able to decorate my own tree and be able to start my own family tradition. I love Christmas. Seeing family, good food, giving gifts, and all the love. It is so happy.

Right now I have bought the most amazing candle from Joanns. It smells like caramel apples, but reminds me of pancakes. I recommend everyone get a candle that smells like caramel apples…it really puts one in the mood for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Thanksgiving is going to be VERY interesting this year. I have to go to a “brunch” at Russell’s family’s house and dinner at my house. I am going to be so full AND fat. But I guarantee you it will all be worth it. Russell’s uncle will be here and he is an amazing cook, not to mention my mommy who I can’t remember ever feeding me anything bad.

Well, I think that is all. I just had the urge to write about my Christmas tree experience.

I thought this was pertinent for the times…. November 6, 2004

Filed under: Uncategorized — christinamyers @ 11:32 am

If any of you went to Woodland High, you have already read this. I came across this today reading some things on another site. As I read through everything in what I listed below I thought “Wow. So true.” So next time you run into a group of punky kids that think the world belongs to them even though most of them have done NOTHING to earn it, remember that they are a product of this:

Rule 1: Life is not fair — get used to it!

Rule 2: The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will
expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about
yourself.

Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school.
You won’t be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a
boss.

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your
grandparents had a different word for burger flipping — they called
it
opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t
whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as
they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning
your
clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you
were.
So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your
parent’s
generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but
life
HAS NOT. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and
they’ll
give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This
doesn’t bear
the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers
off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND
YOURSELF.
Do that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually
have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for
one.

This is a set of Rules that Bills Gates delivered at a high school some years ago. Think about it….it’s very true.

On another note:

A lot of things have happened lately that I have not posted about.

1.I was involved in a minor car accident. It’s okay. The guy was a dick…not jsut saying that to get out of responsibility, but it is true. Insurance companies are looking at throwing it out 50/50 because my old ass car got most of the damage, and his was barely scuffed. Great news. I got to court on Nov. 12 for the ticket that the cop wrote me (damn Atlanta cops)-I am going to fight it due to the circumstances. Those of you who KIT via phone already know the crappy details…too lazy to type them here.

2.My old ass car died…blew a head gasket. It’s fixable. I just don’t want to put anymore money into a $300 car. I loved that car though. I plan on giving it to my bro, who is carless, at the cost of getting it fixed. He gets a car and I do too…everyone is happy.

3.I got a new car. It’s a 2000 Sunfire that Russell and I bought from his grandfather at a very reduced cost. I am going this weekend to earn the $ to pay for my insurance. It will be fun-burning the fallen trees on his dad’s new property.

4.Wedding is looking like a go for March…as long as nothing more catastrophic happens.

5.Waiting until the fall to transfer to Emory due to recent developments…too much stress to deal with that rite now too.

6.My good friend Derick will hopefully be moving to Little Five-which means he will be substantially closer to me. Very happy about that.

Voting was fun…first time I ever voted for a President of the United States before. I felt very important…even though I am only one of millions. I was happy that I got to participate in that. And no, I am not telling.

Well, I just want to say that God works in mysterious ways. He has given me blessings in disguise in recent weeks, and I am thankful. I have the most wonderful family and soon-to-be extended family in the world. They take such wonderful care of me. And my fiance is the most wonderful man in the world. I hope no one is like “eeeewwwwww….mushy”, but I don’t care. I love him with all my heart.
