Lost on the Brain

soooooooooooooooooooooo it’s Thursday but feels like it should be Monday with all the crap that has rained down on me in my little universe between yesterday and today. I am really trying to give it all a positive spin, but unfortunately I am struggling more than usual today…. maybe by the end of today I will have it sorted.

What sucks is there is a lot I want to say, but know I should now on a public forum. I am upset and offended in a couple of area of my life. Guess its up to me to sort it out somehow or just let it go.

But alas, let us move forward. What have I done recently? I have started an intense 6 week course. 150-200 pages of reading a week, 3 hours of class divided into two nights, quiz every week and a group project every other week. SLAMMED. The class prevents me from playing softball until august 11 and it isn’t that I am a huge fan of softball, but I am a fan of our team.

I had a July 4th bbq. It was awesome! We had SOOOOO much food and it seemed like everyone (and their dogs) had a great time!  We even set off fireworks!

We are getting our performance reviews in the next week or so… I may be one of the first as mine is today. I am hoping it goes well.

My brother turned 30 and my parents have achieved 40 years of marriage.

My a/c crapped out, came back and then crapped out again.

I don’t have much else to report today… hope your Thursday goes well.

 

Thanks for stopping by.

A song to get your Monday goin

I am definitely into Daria. If you guys know me, then you know this about me and/or could imagine why. The amazing witticisms and sarcastic awesomeness that is this bad ass cartoon are just two reasons why. In college, I had downloaded the majority of the episodes. I have the full dvd set on my amazon wish list (yea, i am a dork. what’s it to ya?). Anywho, this song is on a couple of the commercial bumpers. I was listening to it when I decided it was def the PERFECT Monday song! Check it out!

Random thoughts and venting.

This is a totally necessary post. As of late, I have been super busy…. looking at my blog, I see that I have not posted anything in three weeks. Since we last spoke, I have had a minor outpatient procedure, gotten a puppy, picked up some more side work (because I need more money and don’t get paid enough as it is), and pushed through on my weekly grad class. I am also making a wedding website and wedding invitations for my wedding and getting the vendors in place. It’s a lot to do, especially the wedding stuff since we are getting married in my hometown, 1100 miles from where I currently reside (Oh, DC, how I miss thee. I cannot wait to return to your ample bosom…).

Meet Aldous.

Needless to say, I have been ridiculously busy. This is no excuse for skipping out on you, dear readers…. so for that, I apologize. I am one big busy sloppy messy mess mess.

The venting: I happen to know a variety of different people and types of people in this world, which I am sure you all do. I, like most other people, hate to be wrong.  There are several types of these “can-do-no-wrong” peoples; we will only mention three here:

1) the people who really hate to be wrong and can’t except when they are wrong;

2) the people who have to prove me wrong (or you, whoever…);

3) the people who think you’re wrong even when you give them facts from a credible source… often times these facts will be written down….and in turn they don’t listen to your suggestion or statement and then come back and show you the SAME SHIT YOU SHOWED THEM! (they could come back later that day… two weeks from now, 5 months from now, three years from now… it doesn’t matter, the point is they will be coming back to show you how they found what they asked you about even though you showed them…

Then you have the types of people that can’t do anything themselves… they can’t look shit up for themselves; they have ideas and can’t produce the ideas themselves… and since you aren’t busy enough, they ask you to do it…. and when you don’t get to it as quickly as they want you to, they pester you and/or go above you to get your boss to apply pressure also… you can substitute the words DON’T and WON’T here also…. these people are the people who want shit handed to em on a silver platter…. love these people.

Piles of Stuff

= shit people give me…

It is extremely frustrating and I know I am not the only one, but I also know that there are other types of people. For example, the ones that have no respect for anyone or anything. There are the people that are happy all the time, and they baffle you because you have NO IDEA how they manage it (and I don’t know about you, but I really wanna know their secret on this one); the kinds of people that are so relaxed that you think they are stoned but aren’t… (you would also like to know their secret)…..and many more…

But, with all of these different types of people, in the end, we all know that they all get upset and they all get happy (genuinely happy) from time to time… Some just hide certain emotions better than others…

And while my pile of stuff that I have to do, continuously is growing, I know that some day in the near future, it will get smaller. I have 4.5 weeks left in my programming class which takes approximately 20 hours of work, spread over three days (majority of it is done on Sat night, Sun afternoon and night, and Monday night) and then a variety of websites I am working on… each group, getting their own day, and a day for my wedding stuff; and we can’t forget, constantly chasing after an 8 week old puppy. Hectic as it is, I probably would not enjoy my life if it was any less busy. I do however, need people to stop with the shenanigans. damnit.

anyway, have a good weekend! happy Saturday! and I will work on being less absent. 🙂

Hump day makes a comeback!

Hello all. Today, I bring you back the hump day you have all been missing!!!!   I know we all need it; whether you got haters hatin on you, or people bein fuckin idiots (yea, i might have some of those), or friends who are doin stupid shit  and refuse to see that what they are doin is stupid, or just your every day coworker who wont stop trying to suggest to you a variety of things that are just annoying…. anyway, I know we all have one or some people from each category…  Well, hopefully this will relieve all this for you. I know it worked for me!

Internet Predator Poster

LESSON TIME!!!!

so here’s the deal…. i get that because i drive a nissan x-terra people think it will do great in snow, that it is an all-wheel drive or 4WD SUV… news flash!!!! not all models are all-wheel drive/4WD — for some unknown, yet, utterly retarded reason, they made the Nissan X-terra with a 2wd option… and I am not talking Front wheel drive… OH NO! it is rear wheel drive…. and i happen to own one of these types of the car… a rear wheel drive nissan x-terra…

now, if you know anything about driving in snow or ice and anything about rear wheel drive vehicles, then you know that my car wont do well in this stuff… so please stop asking.  thank you.  becca

 

ps:  and why in god’s name would anyone make an SUV REAR WHEEL DRIVE!?? That is just stupid. and i know it is even stupider to buy one… so yea, my bad. BWAAAAAAAHHHHHH
