The Holidays Thus Far December 28, 2004

Filed under: Uncategorized — christinamyers @ 10:57 am

So far the holidays are going well, barring a few non-minor things.

Christmas and Chirstmas Eve both went well. The days before hand also. We’ve had a great Christmas despite our own blunders that would have, under most circumstances, screwed Christmas–these events dating back to monthes before hand.

Christmas shopping for Nina was fun — got her a nice little toy, not to mention a necklace (just something personal for her) and combined we got her entire family a bunch of cool stuff. Really, these facts make me more happy than any gift I could receive. This is the first time I have been able to receive the gift of giving–better than any laptop; any game; or any new trinket.

On the sad side, I quit Blockbuster. In retrospect, it might have been a little quick, but it happened. Long story short, they told me to work both the holiday days while others got off, when I questioned them about it and tried to work something out, they basically gave the message “deal with it” even though they caused the problem. As to the question of “what else do I have lined up”, I’m not sure to be honest. I’d like to see how next semester starts out before I pile myself down with another pontentially crappy job that doesn’t want to work with a college kid from Georgia Tech. Oh well, their loss as well as my short-term loss of money.

I’m debating about doing a co-op semester or two with Georgia Tech after getting my ass reamed by my Uncle for not “reading the contract” with regards to my apartment (even though both Nina and I did). I’ve been thinking about it for a while and Grampy brought it up and showed a great deal of interest in me being in it. I think I’m definitely going to look in to it.

Anyway, if you guys are bored and reading this… happy holidays to you all. You guys are great.

Holidays…. December 20, 2004

Filed under: Uncategorized — christinamyers @ 9:49 pm

This holiday has been a lot better than last…and for that I am thankful. I was able to do a lot of things that I might not have been able to do otherwise…and for that I am happy. Overall, I think I am generally grateful.

Grateful for everything everyone has done for me this semester…year…my life.

…for the wonderful life I have been given to live.

…for the amazing fiance I have and the most wonderful soon-to-be in-laws in the world.

…for my pets…without them part of me would be empty.

…for my family and how supportive they have always been-despite the bad times.

…for my true friends. The ones who are always, not simply when it’s convenient.

…for the people who keep me sane.

…for God. Jesus.

…for Valarie, Ms. Jan, Ms. Hawn, Ms. Howe, Ms. Brewton, Daron, Derick, Jake, and everyone else who I love dearly.

…for…everything.

This is the time of year when people really focus on the “good” things in life…the qualties within themselves that make them a “good” person. What I want for Christmas…no matter what faith one may have…I want everyone to be nice to at least one person everyday. And smile at those who look like they need it and those who don’t. Because whether or not you know it, no matter how bad off you think you are, there is someone out in the world who has it just a little bit worse than you do. Be thankful for what you have, not upset over the things you don’t. Give when you can to anyone who might need a hand. And remember…Christmas-or any other holiday for that matter- is not about material gifts, it’s about the feelings that you can inspire in the ones you love…and even those you don’t. Give hope, faith, and happiness-not Hollister, Frappachinos, and Hotkiss.

Grades, Usage, Myself December 14, 2004

Filed under: Uncategorized — christinamyers @ 1:04 am

CHRISTmas is here — or, well, there — over there — soon to be here. Sure, its better than, let’s say… September. I can’t say I like September; I don’t imagine too many good things happened (to me) in September. October either — ‘cept Halloween.. I love giving little kids candy I would never dream of eating myself. Better yet, I love getting that sort of pagan-enriched candy. The Japanese candy makes me happy.

Grades are posted. I met my goal! I got a 4.0…. minus 1.0! Eh, I guess I didn’t much care this semester. I was moreso interested in getting settled in, bitching about my job, and doing a good bit of work and still not understanding my material. Towards the end I suppose I just said “Fuck it.” Sh, don’t tell.

“You see Bob, its a problem of motivation. Its not that I’m lazy, its that I just don’t care.”
“Don’t care?”
“That’s right, I just don’t care. If I work my ass off at [Blockbuster, Innotech, GA Tech] I don’t see another dime.”

Yeah, ill founded, partially untrue, and completly obtuse — that’s the way I work.

Ever been forced to work from 10 PM ’til 7:30 AM? Its fun… you end up doing a lot of nothing, not caring if you screw things up, and just basically walking away from the time completely irate and feeling very abused and used. *adjusts tie* Welcome to the corporate world, I guess.

I guess I could walk into next semester promising to myself and others changes — big changes like I always have — changes that are massive like claiming “4.0, definitely happening”. We’ll see if I grow up or not. We’ll see if I’m immature and just say, “Maybe I’m setting my standards too high”. Maybe I’ll set my standards higher for myself — like I did a year ago. Maybe I’ll push the bar again…

… maybe not. But I should. And if I don’t do what I should, I’m obviously an irresponsible asshole that cares about no one but himself. And I guess if someone called me on it, maybe I’d realize it more. But someone has — I have.

 

Once again…. December 10, 2004

The semester is coming to a close…and not too soon!
Boy, this has been one of the worst semesters ever-as far as life’s events are concerned. I figured out that it will be next to impossible to make an A in my history class…but here’s to trying anyway. English-HA! FInally got to evaluate the psycho lady…hoorah. I know I will be able to make an A in that class as long as I make sure to prepare an awesome final paper and a great presentation to boot. Philosophy, oddly enough, does not worry me. I have done really well this semester. Maybe I actually get it. Who knows? Wouldn’t that be a hoot?

Hmmm….Christmas is drawing near…got lots more gifts to buy for folks. I think that’s the best part anyways.

Have a funeral to possibly go to on Saturday…I am still debating.

Other than that, I’m feeling a little better…okay, well, a lot better, which is really good.

Well, that’s all for now….off to my statistics final….yeah….this should be fun….
