Be still, my soul: thy God doth undertake
To guide the future, as He has the past.
Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake;
All now mysterious shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know
His voice Who ruled them while He dwelt below.

the waiting game. it sucks.

interviews at least seemed to go well... now we wait. and hope I can be a good decision-maker for at least a day or two.

decisions, decisions....

so yeah. we're back to the whole *I-don't-know-what-to-do-about-my-job-I-really-like-my-job-but-could-get-a-lot-more-money-elsewhere-and-elsewhere-is-calling-right-now-and-it-really-wants-a-second-interview-but-is-it-what-I-want-or-what's-best-for-me-I-hate-making-these-decisions* times of my life. so please pray. pray that I don't go insane trying to MAKE a decision, and that I'll make the right one, and that both where I am and where I'm potentially going will be all the better for it.

in my ideal world, every other job wouldn't want to hire me (yes, I'm weird like that sometimes) and my current job would give me a big raise so I could pay for everything I need to and not have to worry about the electric or internet being cut off and we'd all live happily ever after.

but apparently my ideal world is galaxies away from this one.


could use some encouragement?

the sun'll come out for another day...

I am now going to create a post made entirely up of my part of emails to a certain someone I've taken to emailing while at work. It will be completely and totally random. be prepared. (as I hum the lion king song in my head.....)

[commence the copy/pasting]

okay, so how sucky is it that house and Gilmore girls are on at the same time now?!?!

I think I need to start drinking more caffeine in the morning. it may be bad for me, but it keeps me ready for my job. which is a good thing. [edit-removal of personalness] I think I’m going to go back for my master’s next fall, which will also take me FOREVER. so I hear ya. I’m going to have to buy some tapes and reprogram my VCR. now comes the decision of, should I tape House and watch Gilmore Girls, or tape Gilmore Girls and watch House?! it’s the big decisions in life that are the toughest.

I would really like to go to UK. I would most likely get my MBA (Master’s of Business Administration) hopefully with some sort of emphasis in accounting/finance. It would take me either 2 or 3 years, depending on how much I hate myself and I am willing to give up any semblance of a social life. They suggest taking only 2 classes a semester and therefore making it be a 3-year program. I would like to get it done and over with and take 3 a semester, but I don’t know if I’m up for that anymore or not. *sigh*

Coffee is my friend. As long as it’s good coffee, I could drink it all day long. Hot, iced, IV, whatever form you got it in. I am like Lorelai in this way. If I was a rich woman I would invest half my money in starbucks and build one attached to my house and drink it every morning. and every night (decaf, of course……)

School was okay while it lasted, but I was expecting to be done with it. I can see myself having some kind of a nervous breakdown for trying to do too much, too. which would result in more of the caffeine/sugar/chocolate habit. and a sharp increase in the purchase of ale8. we’ll see….

[when asked how I am doing today:]
well, seeing as how I was quite the industrialist this morning and actually made coffee for myself, and then drank a whole bunch of kool-aid at lunch, I now have to pee like a russian racehorse. now, I know you were waiting ALL DAY to hear that about me. and I’m just glad I could be the fulfillment of your dreams.

on another note, I think I have paper-cut myself about 80 times in the last 2 days. I’m usually pretty good at hurting myself like that, but these seem to be the days for the marathon accidental self-mutilation. I was disheartened today when a friend of mine told me they met someone who reminded them of me when that person kept dropping things and falling out of her chair. oh, the legacy I leave.

it seems that caffeine and sugar make me slightly more irrational than usual. oooo-that was profound. I should put it on my blog.


I know that this post was probably confusing and something you didn't really wish to know about me, but since you've made it this far, you get the gold star for the day. mostly because I'm impressed that you would actually take the time to read something as disjointed as my mind's ramblings for the day. (actually, the last 2 days) I was originally only going to put my profound moment in this entry, but I figured, what the heck? why should only one person get to read my random wonderfulness? and now that you have vowed to yourself that you will never read another of my blogs again, I leave you. mostly cuz I know that I'm too addictive to ignore. (um... don't take that at more than face value) like I said, more irrational......

ps~~the weather is freakin awesome. why can't it be fall all year round?!

my coworkers insist on keeping it so chilly in our office that my fingers will hardly type because they're so numb. MUST find jacket in box craziness at home!!

A gloriously beautiful wedding took place this weekend. YAY for little bertha & RV!! it will be nice to have yet another couple of my back-home homeys living within 5 minutes of my place. Good times, lots of embarrassment with the presentation of the *honeymoon basket* at applebee's (almost as much as taking sonya to purchase components of said basket. I'm so evil) but seriously, she was absolutely gorgeous. perfect dress, perfect hair, perfect veil, perfect skin, perfect makeup... she was by far one of the most beautiful brides I've seen yet. (as ama would concur) if and when I get ahold of some pictures (my camera is still AWOL) I'll post some somewhere. good luck guessing which blog.

I think I've officially decided to go back to school next fall. yay for me (sarcastic drippingness) now if I can just figure out what to do about the job situation, I'll be doing okay.

poor doggy has eye issue. like it's swollen and he squints most of the time and it waters all the time. poor puppy. if I could just afford to take him to the vet my world would be better.

an astronaut? or perhaps an elephant herder?


my happy friend from pretty much all my life, the Midget :-), is coming in today. (actually, she came in last night... but I get to see her today.) YAY!! We're having lunch. at the mall. and then we're going to go buy naughty gifts for ex-nurse-roomie. oh wait... that sounds wrong. she's still a nurse. just no longer my roomie :-( I'm back to the singleness again. my bachelorette pad could use some serious work. but I regress.

YAY for Midget-ex-roomie! It's been so long... what, since february/march?! crazy... I remember the days when we never went more than a day not seeing each other. of course, those were also the days that my greatest hobbies were splashing in the creek and climbing the tree in front of her house. yes, at one point in my life I was a little tomboyish. but not so much as she. but that's a different story. speaking of, when I visited their house last winter or whenever that was, I found that the snake we skinned in 7th grade is still proudly hanging in their office/spare bedroom. or maybe it was in that bathroom. don't remember. but cool. oh, the memories.

it's nice to remember fun childhood memories. talking for hours about what we thought we would be when we grew up.... where we thought we would go and all the things we wanted to do. good times.

I'll stop now before the teary-eyedness gets overwhelming. Have a happy day, ya'll. and know that I'm having an awesome one! (erm... at least for lunch. who knows about the rest)

where did the weekend go?!

again, I feel like I need to say something on here, but I don't know what to say. this was a crazy, crazy weekend......

painted on the habitat house (result: happy lady and really sore muscles)

re-bought present for roomie, bought mom's birthday presents (aren't I wonderful?!)

CRAZINESS at church on Sunday. and I do mean craziness. poor drew... he'll never fill in for me again. which is bad, cuz I need fill-ins next month. *sigh*

lunch with fam... good times. mom's birthday. dad bought a cake from dairy queen (which was a much more surprising feat than it first seems)

procrastinated dog-washing and laundry-doing and general cleaning and unpacking.

no grey's anatomy. boo.

lots of naps. me like the sleepness!

oopsy daisy's bad bad day

most of you know that I tend at times to be a forgetful-type person. sometimes I just don't think about things, I don't think to remember them.

last night I learned something.

it is not a good idea to forget to roll up your car window all the way.

it is a bad, bad thing. especially overnight.

last night the above-mentioned forgetfulness happened. and someone decided to relieve me of the burden of all of my cds, my $50 gift for bethany from vs, and seriously only God knows what else. all of my stuff was dumped out of every crevice into the floor of the passenger side. they left my shoes and my lamp and my Bible, so I guess I should be thankful for that.

sometimes I really can't believe I'm as stupid as I am.

it's been a bad, bad morning.

Friday, September 01, 2006

I think I might maybe may

it's a new month! which, of course, means crazy-busy times at work. yay for me.

I haven't been feeling too well today. SO not cool. my guess would be some sort of food poisoning, but who knows. the only thing I can think of would be that our milk has gone bad and the 1/4 of a gallon I drank last night didn't sit well. since my allergies have created this whole I-can't-taste-anything monster, I really don't think I would have noticed the difference. drat.

maybe, just might maybe, I will take the roomie out this weekend for a night of excitement and fun in lexington. if she's not working or tired, and while I still have a little cash from today's paycheck. maybe a little beach volleyball at marikka's? urm... maybe not so much. but the jamaican band at atomic cafe is kinda fun... we'll see.
