ohhh....i'm soooooo tired. and i've only worked ONE of the ten plus hour workdays required of me. it probably didn't help that jennifer and jonathan and i talked for a long time after trivia and my air conditioner broke (again) last night and i woke up at four thirty from being hot. i called the maintenance people about it today. for the fifth time since i moved in april 21st. i mentioned that maybe it was broken beyond repair, since this was the fifth time i called, but i'm sure they'll just jiggle it, stuff it with more freon (after i call at least one more time if not two), and tell me it's fine.

BULLSHIT. i HATE being hot. hate it.

on another note, as a result of being hot constantly and having WAY overreactive underarm sweat glands, nearly all of my white shirts/light colored shirts are rendered un-arm-liftable after about five wearings. sigh. i think i'm going to ask the doc for drysol.

ugh. one more day. all i want to do is snuggle and get a hug and sleep.

1) i don't look good with short hair

2) i miss my high school/early college body

3) my arms are really, really wimpy

4) i'm not as dedicated to changing #'s 2 and 3 as i thought.

5) i need to exercise more, if for no other reason than being more healthy. and i need to eat more veggies...they're cheaper and better for me.

making my list

and checking it twice.

-get my tb skin test next wednesday, have it checked friday, get them to fill out the necessary paperwork for tech and send in friday.

-figure out wtf with parking. it'd be cheaper if i just use visitor parking anyway. that's pretty sad.

-get my PIN in e-mail from the fafsa people, electronically sign my fafsa and submit it.

-clean up and unpack the rest of my f-ing apartment. the new boxes are definitely causing problems.

-orientation all day tuesday aug 14th and a CE orientation from 10:30 to noon friday aug 17th.

-pay tuition, get book.

-hang my freaking curtains.


that's all the crap going on that i need to remember.

this weekend should be great! hang with the drews friday night....
saturday get a haircut (no color, too expensive)
also saturday, free facial and makeup at nordstrom, then party at sally's
sunday, lounge around and explore the city with one of my favorite people. i cannot wait. at least thursday will come sooner than sunday ;)

i did much better than i've been doing...not so far behind the people who actually know what they're doing (still a healthy distance behind, but not as embarrassing at least.)


me by my car

edmund by his car

cole by his car

just finished and did really well! (for me, that is)

dude driving my car on the last freebie run (he drove it better than me)

getting critiqued after a run......

i did better that time! can you tell by the grin??

"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the Gift." - Steve Prefontaine

"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists. It is real. It is possible. It is yours." - Ayn Rand

believe, and you will conquer. i believe. always.

on my couch with my kitties. they've been alternating and laying on me all evening. didn't get as much decluttering/cleaning done as i wanted to. but oh well. i think i'm slowly coming to terms with the fact that my abode will never be spotless. now i just have to figure out a good balance of clutter and serenity lol.

i am tired. maybe i can sleep.

it's the fourth of july!

GREAT day so far. :)

about to go try the diner near my on google said it was good. then back here, clean (vacuum, put up dishes), shower, head to my brother's house for family and fun, then back to atl NO LATER THAN 5:30 for fireworks at a friend of a friend of a friend's condo. theoretically we will be able to see the lenox ones AND the downtown ones. i'm excited. i'm really trying to make atlanta feel like HOME. (i.e. spend more free time here than in carrollton). i like it so far, and i think i'm finding a balance without my family (well ok mom) getting too upset. i think she's going to come up one evening either this week or next and we'll eat and go exploring. :)

i am hungry and i have to brush my teeth. holla.
