so i finally received my authorization to test for my nursing boards.... i can schedule it anytime now. yeahhh.... except the website is down, so i'm just kinda killin time until i can actually schedule my test... but it looks like April 5th is the day. ugh, i just wanna get this overwith. merhhhh.

went to Art Van today.... i'm buying a new mattress. a KING size mattress. my shoddy little full bed that i've had since i was 5 just isn't cuttin it anymore. i'm just gonna bite the bullet & get a king. weeeee! :)

volleyball was SWEET this week. didn't look so hot at the beginning.... we only had 3 people show up at first & had to forfeit the first game. but then we got our 4th and proceeded to beat some major ASS. the other team had all their players, so we were playing 4 on 6 and seriously FLYING around the court. but, we tore it up & won 3 out of 4 games to take the match. good playin, Mare, that was badass. Jenn..... we miss you. come play with us again!

so i organized a pool at my work for the superbowl.... i sold squares for $5 a piece & we filled the board ($500). and...... i WON one of the quarters. where the money went, i have NO idea. there goes $125 in the blink of an eye. i can't manage time for shit, but i can organize like a mothafucka.

Valentine's Day was.... AMAZING.Collapse )

ughhh.... two 12 hour shifts in a row makes me feel like gumby. & eliminates all possibility for coherent thought. sorry for the rambling.

holy shit, the pistons are so good. the score was seriously tied at 51 and now the score is 99-69. are you kidding me??? i mean, come on, DARKO is in. sweeeeet. i wanna go to a game soon.

& i also want a hot tub. in my life. right now.

work?? yeah. i am *completely* out of my element. i HATE that feeling, when you just can't get a handle on ANYTHING. arghghghg. damn you, type A personality. i hate not knowing what needs to be done and when. i just wanna make my to-do list and check things off. instead, i find myself doing 37 things at one time and taking forever to complete one damn thing. argh. i know.... i'll get used to it & be fine, but i can't help hating this feeling of being the one who doesn't know what to do next. uncomfortable is the best word to describe it.

holy SHIT, this pistons game just got even more ridiculous than it was before!!!!!!!!! and we have our benchwarmers in! good LORD. it's like watching the fucking harlem globetrotters play against a middle school girl's team. JEEEEZ. 107-83 was the final score.

ok, so i had these big plans that i was gonna come home from work & go to the gym. ummmm.... no. who was i kidding to think that i could work for almost 13 hours and be functioning on ANY level when i got home?? ha.

wait a minute. WAIT A MINUTE. did i just fucking miss american idol. sonofaBITCH!!!!!!!!!! :(

&&& i'm out. time to go study for boards.

so the other night i got tanked off a bottle of wine & watched Texas take down USC (smug bastards). all i can say is: vince young, you ARE my hero.
i knew i should have bought that texas shirt from steve and barrys for $7.99. dammit. now all the texas shit will be more expensive. oh well, it probably would have jinxed them if i had actually bought the shirt before the game, but i'm weird like that.
& seriously.... usc loses & matt leinart says: "well whatever, i still think we're the better team"
texas wins and the first thing the coach says is: "let's congratulate an amazing usc team"
ummm.... class much?
anyway, i was so damn excited, i stayed up till 3 am watching sportscenter.
hook em horns!!

lost to the bitchiest team EVER in volleyball last night. dammit!

by the way:
Illicit: illegal
elicit: to bring forth

DAMMIT. cost us a question at cranium. redeemed myself with the spelling of LUSCIOUS.

anyway, it's frickin freezing in here, so i'm off to take a shower.

and hockey? sad. SAD. um, can we stop sucking & be good again?? soon, please.

So Christmas was good, minus the usual family drama. UGH.

The best present by far was my iPod nano. :) yeah, i've been playing with it for like the past 5 hours. Seriously, the most productive thing i did all day was go out to my car & get my new coffee maker so i could make a pot. sweet. i <3 vacation.

maybe tomorrow i'll venture out & exchange some things that i got, namely an assortment of ORANGE items that my mom bought me. no kidding: orange fleece, orange sweater, orange scarf, orange gloves. um, orange is good.... in moderation. i really like all the things she got me, just maybe i'll get different colors. i'm hoping the mall isn't insane tomorrow. i hate that.

so yeah, i'm lazy as hell today. and i love it. :)

i am so damn excited. on my first management exam, i got an 88%. not bad considering half the class failed! and i just got the grade for the final i took last week.... 95%. school of nursing, KISS MY ASS!
i am officially done with that hell hole. BOO-YAH

i'm done with my Christmas shopping & everything is wrapped. SO glad i don't have to set foot in the mall again.

tomorrow is my last day as a PCA at work. after tomorrow, i have a week off... then i have to work new years day (but it's ok cuz i get paid double-time and a half for it being a holiday).... then i have another week off.... then i start nursing orientation!!! good thing... this PCA job is killing my back. not to mention i'm getting a fatty raise when i start nursing. weeeeeeeeee! money!!!!!!!!! maybe i can start getting some of my credit card debt under control now. :)

volleyball double header tonight 7:30 & 8:40. 2 hours of volleyball, i am so excited!

anywho, volleyball is sweet, school of nursing sucks, & i have 2 weeks off coming up. yay.

ok so i was watching the apprentice tonight & they had this singer on there. needless to say, i fell in love. seriously, i've listened to this song like 500 times already. AND i'm excited cause his cd comes out tomorrow.

what can i say, i'm a sucker for good piano & an amazing voice. :)

so here's a link to the song:
then click on the song titled "just this good"

it's on this chick's website cause she wrote it with him & because the link on his website doesn't give you the full song.

this is his website where you can listen to other clips & such.

so anyway, listen.

sorry, i just get overly excited when i hear new music that i like. :)

while i was looking at his music i ended up on this random website www.cdbaby.com
i'd never heard of it before, but it's pretty cool cause you can search for artists by typing in someone you like & it'll give you ones that are like it. OR you can search by flavor, according to mood (music to play when life just sucks), occasion (to drink alone to), or for types of people (for stoners) hahahaha. anyway, yeah i've been on this website for like an hour. haha i'm ridiculous.

in other news, the annoying motherfuckers that live above me..... are MOVING OUT on saturday. YES. the answer to my prayers. thank you thank you thank you.
maybe my car wont be keyed anymore.
orrrrr maybe theirs will before they leave. muahahahaha.
just kidding.... kinda.

ok, time for bed, workin early tomorrow. then gettin up ASS early for tailgating on saturday morning.

sorry, longest post ever. you love it.

[ mood | bored ]

ugh. sucks when you're stuck at home & don't have a car.

i woke up at 9 (on my day off) to take my car into the dealership with hopes of getting it to stop farting every time i brake. so i'm stuck at home, bored as hell. i've been watching laguna beach for the past 2 hours... getting kinda hooked. must be nice to live the rich life haha.

so yeah....

the dealership just called, they're gonna be able to get the parts to fix my car tonight!!! AND, it's only gonna be $200 instead of the grand or more that i was anticipating. !!!!!!! not that i actually HAVE $200 right now, but whatever.

so i have a ticket for the Ohio State game on saturday, but i was supposed to work. so i was trying to get someone to switch days with me but i couldn't find anyone... so i looked on the schedule book and (miraculously) we have an extra person on that day. ok, that NEVER happens. we usually are at least a person *short*, especially on the weekend. what are the chances that on the day of the biggest game, there'd be an extra person on the shift?? so i asked my boss and she actually agreed to let me have the day off!!!!! so i'm goin to the game! :)

work is crazy, as usual. on friday i went in at 5:30 am and worked till 7:30 pm. NOT fun. i pretty much couldn't walk when i went home.

it's frickin freezing in here... i think my heat is broken. fuck.

i want my hair to grow back faster. i miss it.

my kitty is good, still cute. i bought a pair of shoes the other day & he made the box into a bed for him, even though he doesn't really fit in it, he tries.
