Seems like it has been ages since I've posted. Heck, it's been ages since I've read my friend's page. It's just so much and I just don't have time.
I'm perpetually buried under a never ending stack of school work. As soon as I catch up I'm behind again.
In the short about school aside from it being tons of work:
I'm really loving my new major. All (almost) of the professors are amazing. They are ALL incredibly smart and have so much to teach us. (To bad a few of them just don't know how to teach! Gah!) I'm learning tons of things and of course, the more I learn the more I realize that this is a field that requires great specialization and I have miles to go before I sleep.
There are 6 students in my grade for my major. I'm the only girl. That pretty much so makes me the proverbial punching bag. I'm easy to make fun of... being the only girl any female aimed joke HAS to go to me. I'm okay with it. They tease because they... well can. One of them pretty much so hates me, because he thinks girls should be in the kitchen, but for hating me so much he surely does remember silly things about how my idea of fun is sitting at home with my BFF drinking wine and knitting! We're all a bunch of nerds. It's nice to be amongst people that don't have room to judge me for knitting a pi sweater vest.
I miss sewing and knitting. Yeah, I can watch CSI and call "bullshit" because they start talking about memory polymers and I know that it's all lies. And that show Fringe. I watch it because it's so bizarrely outlandishly outside of our current abilities. But what good does that do me on a daily life stress relief basis?
I'm going to start knitting more with my free time.
I suppose that's enough for now.

9:00PM - Les Miserables
I stayed up a bit to late last night because I was so close to finishing my book, Les Miserables, that I could just not make myself put it down and go to sleep.
And when I was finished my face was wet with tears.
I cried for the characters of the book. I cried because my time spent with them was done. I got to sit along beside them for well over a decade and watch them grown, hurt, learn, love and die.
The characters were so well developed that they seemed like actual people I had known my whole life.
Finishing a book is always sad because I enjoyed it while I was reading it. This one made me more sad than usual. I wish I could go back and see them all again. Alas, most of my friends have perished.

10:06AM - Motorcycle Ride!
Yesterday was a day of many firsts for my still nameless motorcycle and myself.
First time leaving the neighborhood.
First time going through stop lights.
First time riding to my Dad's condo (although he wasn't there for this epic happening).
First time riding through road construction.
First "one of us" wave from another biker.
First time riding to work.
First time riding in the rain. (It's way sicker than just jumping in puddles, but damn I was so cold for so long).
First time riding at night.
First time having another biker pass me a card at a stop light. ^.^
Yesterday was made of win.
Today is made of sore arms and smiles.

11:16PM - WTF?
Why am I the heinous bitch when I'm the only person I work with that didn't make light of or think nothing of the programmer's story about throwing kittens (yes, living) into a fire?
Yet somehow time and time again I'm the bad person.

10:29PM - Special Paper
All of my engineering homework has to be turned in on engineering paper.
Besides from the fact that it's retardedly expensive it's no problem. I understand. It makes your homework look pretty.
But I cannot ever manage to find mine!
It can't go very far but yet somehow I always lose this stuff. Makes turning in my homework rather difficult.
To make things worse... I got attacked my a huge spider. Not sure what kind it was, but I tried to go online to look at different types of spiders to see what it was and I thought I'd puke from looking at those spider pics so I had to stop.
10:57AM - Mama Bears!
I cannot wait for my Mama Bear to come back and visit!
I miss her. = (
She's been gone so long. There are so many people she needs to beat up for me. And the list just keeps on going. Mamas definitely needs to come visit more frequently so she can take care of me.

8:33PM - Lame
I am so tired by the time I get home from work late in the day.
But I really need to study for my exam.
Definitely unprepared for this one.
Stupid getting sick when you have a six week long class. It really kills ya.
My gameplan: Sleep well tonight
Go to class tomorrow
Leave work early (my poor paycheck)
Study study study

8:21PM - Sickpants
I has a fever.
Whenever I feel like poop I always accuse myself of being melodramatic... cause I usually am.
But I wasn't be dramatic this time (well I was, but not without good reason).
I'm in sweatpants and the A/C is on 81 (therefore off) and I'm still cold. = (
Sorry to anyone I saw (made out with/shared drinks with) this weekend if I got you sick. I sure hope I didn't. But now if it was you that got me sick... prepare to feel my wrath!

10:04PM - Officially Old
I just called in a noise complaint on someone somewhere in my neighborhood.
The spanish music has been blaring that annoyin base beat for like five hours.
And I feel icky and just want to sleep!
I tried going to bed at 8pm but the noise kept waking me up. I kinda wanted to eat some babies.

10:34PM - Best weekend ever?
Possibly it was.
Even my terrible getting lost on my way home hasn't detoured me from wanting to go back to Orlando.
It was a packed weekend, non stop from Thursday night to Sunday noontime. Seriously... only enough down time for six hours of sleep total.
There was two hours of waffle cooking with mimosas with Susannah and Annie, and 3am jello shot making with Kevin's new super awesome girlfriend. I had 9am breakfasts with the most wonderful Kate and Russell. Lots of drinking from mayonnaise squeeze bottles, and socializing.
Alas, I lost my belt.
Good times, good times.

10:17PM - Back to School!
I got accepted to FGCU (Florida Gulf Coast University).
I've never had to worry about acceptance before, so I am quite relieved.
This summer I can take one class to ease my way back into the situation and then start back full time in Fall!
I'm so excited.
(and just because of conversations today at work)
And I just can't hide it.
I'm about to lose control.
And I think I like it.

Friday, February 29, 2008
For about a week I had been under the assumption that I had just pulled something in my shoulder area without realizing it.
I had thought perhaps I slept on my side wrong. But when the pain continued for a whole week I thought twice.
Last night the pain traveled from my shoulder down the left side of my torso. All of the things that usually make sore, cramped, or pulled muscles stop hurting only made it worse. A few things even made breathing difficult.
I just made sure not to lay on my left side and went to bed as normal. Normal until 2am
At 2 in the morning I was rudely awoken by my inability to breath. It took me a moment after being pulled out of sleep to realize that I was not breathing. I had to focus my attentions on making sure I inhaled and exhaled while trying to figure out why I could not do so like normal.
The pain in my side had turned from a mild ache that hurt only if I lay on it incorrectly to an inexcapable shooting pain.
I reached for my cell phone and held it in my hand in case I determined the situation desperate enough to call 911.
After a few minutes the pain relaxed enough for me to breath with a little less effort. But I had to remain sitting up.
Now, it was 2am afterall and my alarm was set for 6:30am to get ready for work so I knew I needed to get back to sleep. After a few foul attempts at laying down I discovered that as long as I lay in the fetal postion on my right side I could lay down. Anything else, i.e. on my left side, stomach, back, cause my breathing to become increasingly labored.
I was feeling mildly better by morning, as I had figured out how to lay while sleeping. I managed a shower and to get off to work where the pain continued. Every move made me hurt. Then the sneezeing fit attempted to start.
I say attempted because I was incapable of inhaling that first deep breathe required for sneezing. It hurt so bad during my body's physical reaction to a tickling nose. It was a fight between my body's natural reaction to sneeze and it's natural reaction to cease doing anything that caused it such great pain.
Eventually we reached a point at work where there wasn't enough desk for all the people scheduled to work (wtf?) so I got to go home as I had told the manager earlier about my night of inability to breath. And since the pain was not going away as I had hoped I ended up in a walk in clinic, as I have not yet found a doctor down here.
A few hundred dollars later... the doc has no reason why I can't breath. I'm kind of scared to go to bed tonight. Just because I've been given pain killers to not realize that I'm hurting, for I hurt most when I lay down, does not mean my body will be any more capable of breathing if I were to accidentally roll onto my left side in my sleep.

10:02PM - Job awesomeness!
I managed to find a retail job after being down here for half a week. Hired on the spot.
Today, while at said retail job I got a phone call from another company I applied with and they hired me.
So it wasn't on the spot, but it was the same day as my interview.
I rock so hard, oh so hard.
I will now be working Monday to Friday, making $11/hr so I'll be able to go visit Orlando a whole lot! And I'll be able to help out with gas money for anyone willing to come visit me. ^.^

12:54AM - Mexican Food Stuffs
There is like ten thousand Mexican food little cafes around my Father's house. I bet it's delicious because it's probably so authentic they add nastiness to the water so you have to buy alcohol instead.
So someone should come visit me for a week and we can chug Tums and eat more Mexican food than anyone's stomach could handle. Except of course actual Mexican's stomach's, of course.

7:54PM - I Run Away
I was planning on moving to my Father's house in Bonita Springs in two and a half weeks.
So I did the responsible thing and told my boss that I was giving my two weeks notice. He said thank you for giving them notice instead of just not showing up.
Then today my boss says to me to turn in my key to the door at the end of the day as this would be my last day.
Why do people have to fuck everything up at the last minute?!
So I could either sit around here for two and a half weeks with nothing to do making no money or I could move this weekend.
I am moving to my Father's THIS SATURDAY.
I've got two full days off to pack every last thing that I own.
Saturday morning we are getting a truck and I will load all of my belongings onto it and leave Orlando.
Anyone that can help me in my packing or loading of the truck, I would greatly appreciate it.
I'm flipping out pretty bad and a whole freaking array of emotions are going on.
I'm going to miss everyone so bad. But certain someones are the reason I am running away.
No, I'm not moving. Yes, I'm running away.
I just can't handle. And I plan to stay away until I can stop crying.
