I don't fully like the person I've become over the past few years. Sure, I like that I'm becoming more out going again but I feel like I've also lost part of myself in that process as well. And I miss the part that I've lost. So my goal for 2012 is to be more active online and to get back involved in the various things online that brought me happiness.

Hello everyone and a Happy Belated Thanksgiving to my friends here in the US who celebrate the holiday. I hope everyone had a wonderful time either by yourself or with friends and family. My Thanksgiving was nice; could have done with not having to clean my mom's or cook Thanksgiving dinner before my step-grandparents got here but it wasn't a bad day. My step-father was supposed to clean for my mom before he left to get his dad and step-mother but he just piled it up on the side of the living room and the dining room and said it was done. He was also going to put the turkey in before he left because he "wanted to do something special to it" but he forgot so I did that. Well, when he got home, he was going to to dinner since we never let him cook but he sat down and went "I'll get it in a few minutes". Well, it was 3 at that point and the rest of dinner was going to take an hour and a half to two hours and he had to drive them back down to Philly from Harrisburg so I went to the fridge in the garage and got everything. I'm in the kitchen ten minutes later after getting everything in the oven and was getting ready to set the dining room table when he goes "I was going to get it in another twenty minutes or so." Well, by the time he got around to it, we wouldn't be eating until 6 or 7. But it's cool; it was a nice evening.

Last night at about 9:30, Steve and I ran to Toys R Us up here to see if they had the Pro Guitar for Rock Band 3. Well, we got over to the one closet to mom's house in Harrisburg and left; the number of cars and the lines of people was insane. So we went to the other one about seven miles away and could see the line a bit better - this was wrapped around the building and then some. We said forget it. We have the guitar pre-ordered at the GameStop near my apartment but they keep pushing the release date back and we know some places have them. Mom and I were watching the news at 11 and they showed the second Toys R Us and said that the line had thousands of people in it; they let 500 in at 10 and the lines was stilled wrapped around the building and up to the mall. Then they said the Harrisburg Toys R Us (the first one we went too) was even worse then that one. So even if we had gotten into the line and gotten in, we wouldn't have gotten into it. One of the woman that I work with said the one down in Montgomeryville near my apartment was as bad and I was reading the FB of someone from high school and it was as bad as the one near my apartment in Horsham. When I have kids; I don't care about the huge sales; I will start shopping early in the season and put it away so that come Black Friday; I could spend the day with my kids and not try and fight the insane crowds. I do not see what the allure is to doing the shopping on this day.

Moving into the apartment is done for now. I cannot afford to buy bookshelves or a couch so that will have to wait until some time next year and I've unpacked what I can without having bookshelves. I've also settled in nicely. It's quiet most of the time except for the people upstairs but there's nothing I can do about that and I can live with it. My brother is staying there a lot with school and work so I have some company. The next couple of weeks, things will be extremely tight so we'll be having spaghetti a lot but that's alright. Haven't been going out much; though I really don't have a lot of friends anymore so that's not a problem. With school I keep pretty busy plus work and Steve has Rock Band 3 so we've been playing that a few times a week. And we've been watching Doctor Who through Netflix and his PS3 so it's really not that bad. I'm getting into a schedule and now that I've gotten settled, won't have to run around so much so I can also work on some webpages to build some skills up.

Now that my schedule is evening out, I'm also going to make an effort to be on the journal a bit more and to get to know people. It's like I fell off the face of the Earth but I've just been so busy and the depression was back for awhile but it's all evening out now.

Okay - and I said I wasn't going out today but my mom needs to run to CVS and I don't want her driving with all the idiots who are out there driving today.

I've fallen into the gutter

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I have issues. Probably some serious issues. I want to take strawberries, dump them on someone and lick them off. I literally want to grab someone (not a random person; I do have someone in mind though they probably have no clue), pour strawberries on them and lick the strawberries off. Well, actually, I'd have to get their shirt off and then I can pour the strawberries on them. But still, I have had serious thoughts about doing this. Just tonight but there are serious thoughts involved. It randomly popped into my head as I was in the grocery store and saw the shelf of strawberries. Like...yum...licking them off of said person would be fun. I almost smacked myself in the middle of the produce section. And then as I was accidentally eating the pint of Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream, I started thinking about slowly pouring that on someone and licking that off. Would someone please take my mind? Preferably before I go to bed tonight because otherwise my dreams are going to be...well, they aren't going to be PG tonight.

And yes, I accidentally ate the pint of ice cream. The other night my iPod randomly played "accidentally in love" which got me thinking - how can you accidentally be in love? I mean seriously. Do you have a crush on someone and like a month later you suddenly go "hmmm, I don't think I'm crushing on you, I think I accidentally fell in love with you. I don't know anything about your or anything. We only talk randomly but I'm so in love with you. I will bear your children and do whatever you ask of me." So if you can accidentally be in love, then I can accidentally eat an entire pint of ice cream.

And I'm back to the licking of strawberries again. *shakes head* I need other images in my head.

And a brief update

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Okay - since it's now official, I can say that while I did drop out of law school during the beginning of this month, I begin by next Bachelor's Degree on May 12th. Yup, I am back at Kaplan working on a Bachelor's in Information Studies. I did manage to register for the Introduction to Website Development (7 PM on Sunday nights) but I cannot get into the Introduction to Information Studies class. I will have to check tomorrow night and then if it's not up, I will e-mail the adviser listed on my school homepage. Can you tell I'm excited? Received the e-mail ten minutes ago that I was activated as a student again and I'm already registering for classes. :)

There are so many things that I need to do but I'm not doing them. Am I being lazy? Somewhat. I'm exhausted. The 46 hours of work this week has been a killer; especially since most of that was spent typing in some way or another. What I am suppose to be doing is bringing every out of my two bedrooms and going through it but I talked with my step-father last night and he agreed that on Tuesday or Wednesday he'll clean out the stuff he has in the dining room and then start bringing down the containers and piles from the rooms and then I can go through them where I actually have room. And so they told me to rest today since I'll probably have another week of overtime.

So what have I done today? Well, I wound up sleeping late since the one cat kept me up most of the night fighting for bed space. Finally got out of bed at 11 and got a shower. A few years ago I had tried the Schick Intuition shower razor and didn't like how it did my legs but yesterday when I was at Giant, they had the Schick Intuition Plus on sale plus I had a $1 off coupon for anything in Health and Beauty so I decided to try it again. This time, it didn't suck. And in the long run, it's cheaper then the Nair Shower stuff that I've been using. That is a definite plus.

After my shower I ordered some boneless wings from Chili's. They said ten to twenty minutes and so I used that time to hit Barnes and Nobles next door to Chili's for my British Genealogy magazines. And guess what - the new Top Gear magazine was also in and it has a bright green Porsche on the front. While I was there, I found they had a new Knit Simple magazine and two history magazines that looked interesting. And I was bad, I hit the Star Bucks in the back of Barnes and Nobles and got a Venti Light Caffe Vanilla. I know, seriously bad but I was craving caffeine. Picked up dinner and I've been sitting here on the couch relaxing and watching family movies free onDemand. First was Cheaper by the Dozen 2 which was really good. Now I just started First Daughter. I don't know how it is going to be but you know what, I don't care. It makes me happy. :)

Mom is staying up at the house in Harrisburg for the week but Steve is on his way down. We didn't get him a birthday present and we know he wanted the Google Nexus phone but we can't get it on a family plan. Not through T-Mobile because the guy mom talked to on the phone tried to help her but said Google is controlling it all. He did help her get in touch with Google who suggested we buy out his part of my family plan and then buy the phone through them on his own plan; or we can spend $530 and buy just the phone and put it on the family plan ourselves. The woman at Google told mom if we're not willing to spend the money with them, then we should look at the new HTC phone but the Google phone out performs the HTC phones. I'm going to take him up to look at it. And I beg to differ with the woman's comment. Steve already has a Google phone and I have the HTC touch pro 2 and my phone is way better then his. So we'll see if he likes the phone but I'm thinking not.

I am thinking of playing The Sims 3 for a bit; or WoW since I haven't played that in a long time either. Of course, I should also work on pen pal letters. What should I do?

Fall has finally arrived. I woke up thinking it was going to be somewhat warm so after my shower, I took a moment to shave my legs and rub in some mint lotion so that I could wear a pair of shorts. Well, when mom and I went out to venture to Big Lots, it was actually somewhat chilly. And the air had the autumn smell too it, that special sunlight filling the air and that feeling that all is...well beautiful. Since my new classes haven't started yet, I didn't have to rush home and complete homework. We did pick up some new garden tools since ours are dead or lost for only $2.50 each. Tomorrow morning mom and I are planning on getting up and going to find mums to plant in the front garden. We've got to replant her bulbs that got pulled up when we ripped out all the old plants so we'll probably do that too. Of course, the temperature is suppose to only be in the 60's so I think I'll wear Jeans and a t-shirt instead of shorts! LOL.

My second to last semester begins on Wednesday and it's not looking to bad. I've got Law Office Management which sounds pretty boring but pretty informative and I've also got American Women which seems to be a history class of sorts. I've been reading the text book to get a head start and I'm actually enjoying it so far. Yeah, freaky, I know. But it's really interesting.

Well, time for bed. I am planning on working on icons and such tomorrow but we all know how well I do when I plan stuff. LOL.

Night all.
