Ok, bar inability to sleep, I’m about to pass out. Our basement flooded and we’ve been running carpet cleaners to get the water out, and spraying Odo-Ban to prevent mold growth and eliminate the smell. I took two naps, and I’m still tired. Here goes nothing.
Be honest, how many of you ladies have ever tried on a tux or suit for men?
So many missed connections today. I don’t think I got through on a single phone call -> nobody picked up. The one phone call I got back game hours later and I got my phone just too late to answer it. When I called back, I got no answer. I guess I’m bound to have days like these. Maybe I’ll have better luck tomorrow.
P.S. I love football.
Yeah, so I really haven’t updated since Portland. A lot has happened in a really short time (well, that was 3 weeks ago I guess). I’ve been dealing with a lot of drama, and I’d like to think I’ve handled it all well, but the proof is in the pudding. There’s a few damaged relationships and too much going on for me to really fix everything. It seems that during my summer I had a lot more time to do stuff than I do now that class has started back.
•This sudden decrease in time has injured my relationship with Alecia; and even though we’ve tried to work through it, I’m not convinced it’s fixed yet. I’m taking the “wait-and-see” approach.
•A friend of mine over the past few years returned to the internet after an extended hiatus. Upon returning, it seemed that she was anorexic. She’s talked about her weight and her insecurity about it before, and I’ve always been supportive of her. It seems that her (off and on) boyfriend of a couple years now is critical of her weight. She began posting all kinds of pictures of these sickly anorexic girls which popped up in my feed. This sparked a less than healthy exchange which ended in a lost friendship. I know I didn’t handle the situation the best way, but I couldn’t help her any more than I did nor could I quietly walk away without saying something. *sigh*
•My relationship with a friend of mine (Allena) has been up and down a bit lately. Historically, we have spurts of talking quite a bit that slowly fade into not talking for a bit and then the cycle repeats. Well, in all the time we’ve been friends (7 years) I can remember only one or two exchanges that could be considered a fight. We had another that kinda lasted over the last couple days.
•Classes started 3 weeks ago and with that, I’m back in class with Jenny. She’s been off and on with her guy since at least psych class (he’s the crazy paranoid super stalker type fyi). It seems that they’re pretty solidly splits-ville. He’s got some other girl now and doesn’t seem to want to come back. Let me tell you about Jenny. She’s my age, has a two year old son, and lives at home with her mom and step-dad. She’s a Christian. She’s got a few tattoos, a lip ring, and these wicked beautiful green eyes. *stop* you see what I did there? Yeah, I kinda like her, ok. Let’s move on. *play* She has made it through two years of nursing school with excellent grades while still being an excellent parent. Her son is smart and energetic and loves her; and she cares so much for him. Financially, she’s not in the greatest spot right now. She’s not employed (she’s a student), but she’ll be a nurse when she gets out of school so she’ll be all right. She is going through this profound heartbreak right now with this guy. I mean she’s been with him for two years, he’s been around her child, and she’s been around his. As verbally abusive and stalker-ish as he’s been, she loves him and this break up really hurts her. She’ll be ok after a while. I’m just being supportive, giving her someone to rant to, and bounce ideas off of.
So, all of that and more has filled my last 3 weeks. I didn’t even mention the fact that I had a conversation with another class mate that nearly unhinged nearly every ounce of Christianity inside me; the only thing I was left with was my faith, and that is sufficient. Nor did I mention that I’ve been writing poetry again after a long while of not writing. Oh well. That just goes to show, there’s almost always more than what you can fit into one of these blog things.
Coming up: Wedding in MI, camping/climbing trip, Isha and Josh’s wedding
Yeah, I guess I do keep a full roster. I find I’m busier when I’m having fun, but at the same time, I did disappear for a while after getting back from Portland. A little R&R is good for the soul.
Well, quite a lot, honestly. As far as making a living is concerned, I am a pharmacy technician at a CVS, and that’s kinda rad sometimes. I’m also a nursing student at Ivy Tech in my last semester. Hopefully by March of next year, I will be working as a nurse at a hospital either in the area or somewhere else. I also write in my spare time (whenever I can find any). :)
