What is your greatest strength?
My greatest strength would be my perfectionist quality.... It's an all or nothing kind of attitude. 100% go big or go home. Ya know?

What is your worst weakness?
Unfortunately, my greatest weakness is my perfectionist quality... All or nothing and when it comes to school lately it's been a nothing kind of give up attitude. RAWR. I suck.

Is your favorite time the past, present or the future?
Hard to choose.... the past got me where I am today but does not define me as a person. I'm perfectly happy in the now, but damn my future's so bright I gotta wear shades. Really cute shades. :))

Library does NOT equal lounge...

So I realize that this a waste of my time when I should be studying or something but since when did a library become a daycare-let's discuss our relationship problems-lounge to make phone calls. I have a test on Thursday. I'm wigging a bit. I can NOT focus at home because I end up cleaning or getting on FaceBook. I leave work after a horrendous day and decide I'm going to the campus library to study.

After consulting my map, I realize there's no where to park near there. Ghey. I'm not crossing Central Avenue at night. I bust a U-ey and head towards Poplar/Main library. I get caught by the train at Southern that's 5 miles long and going 5 miles her hour. I decide to not cry and sip my latte while waiting and catch up on a few Tweets. I will turn this in to something relaxing in a fubar-ed day.

I get to the holy grail of libraries. For 20 minutes, we're good. Then this woman comes to my quiet corner... puts her books down and gets on her cell phone. Are you effin' kidding me lady? Take your GED for dummies book somewhere else. I don't care how Sha-nae-nae* is going to end up in jail if she doesn't watch out. Take her with you to the COGIC convention this weekend and straighten her out. While debating throwing said latte at her.... I huff and puff and throw my cell phone around and stares at her. She gets the hint and leaves. Then here comes a couple who agreed to meet at the library to discuss their relationship problems. Do people not have respect for other's anymore? WTH. You aren't passing that GED on your cell phone and he will cheat on you again. OMFFFFFFFG. I promptly got a private room for study.

Wednesday, I'll be parking in my priority parking lot and trekking across campus. I might start studying in my car in front of the house.

*When I say Sha-nae-nae & talk about the COGIC convention, I'm not being racist but you know the people I'm talking about. I'm just sayin'.....

And at first, I was like oh shiz, I won't be able to work it because I'm Mac-tarded.... Nope... I love love love it.

It's so true: Once you go Mac, you never go back.

Our second bedroom is a dumping ground.
-It's orange, like a burnt orange
-It has two.... let's call them retro dressers in it
-Then there's the two yellow chairs from my grandmother's house that we are storing for my sister
-A globe
-Mitch's grandfather's old desk, which is covered with a scanner that we don't use and a printer that we don't use.
-Throw in the amp and guitar and....
it's a JUNK room. I've decided that I'm going to re do it. We need a guestroom/office for me to study in. Mitch agrees, I'm stoked.

Black & white. Glam. Think Marilyn and Audrey. Oh what accent color? Red vs. blue. Daybed vs. Futon. I'm so stoked until Mitch says I have to leave the furniture in there. I can get rid of the yellow chairs but the 2 dressers and desk stay. I am 'allowed' to paint the dressers. This is what I'm doing to one of them:

mirrored dresser

I found a DIY blog. Wish me luck.

BTW-no cigarettes for 8 days. I ROCK!

Swine Flu...

Last Thursday, I was TIRED all day. Miserable kind of tired. Then Friday morning, I woke up feeling simply wretched. I went in to work and got diagnosed with dun da dun THE SWINE FLU... WTH?! I stopped my Target for my TamiFlu, gatorade, bleach wipes, and Lysol. Then I went to Blockbuster and rented 4 movies so they upgraded my account to a Blockbuster rewards account for free.... gee.... Thanks. I haven't left the house since then. I've never had the flu. EVER. It's wretched.

I spent the weekend napping, watching movies, watching football, and researching accelerated BSN programs. I'm looking at Union and Baptist College of Health Sciences. I might just go to Lowenberg @ Memphis but I wanna look at all my options first.

K well I'm gonna get back to my Colts.

Manic Monday #180

Are you usually late, early or right on time?
--late. For everything... work, late always even if I'm not technically late until 9:30... meeting friends, late even when I have good intentions on being there on time. Late for everything. I think it's because in high school when I got suspended for too many tardies, my parents didn't punish me. Plus, my boss has always been forgiving for my tardiness so I'm ruined for life.

What would be harder for you, to tell someone you love them or to tell them that you do not love them back?
Well duh.. to tell someone I love them, it's scary putting yourself out there. People take advantage of the fact that you love them. : ) But it's not the case now...

Which would you rather have: a high salary or job satisfaction?
Hrm... I don't know. I have a good job now... but no satisfaction out of it which makes me crazy so I can't really answer that because I like $$$.

So I started classes at University of Memphis Pictures, Images and Photos last Tuesday. I had been @ STCC and got tired of their drama so I paid my own tuition for Memphis. I'm stoked. I'm ready to finish up and graduate! Now if I could just pick a major. Bawhahaha.

Becky and I are doing WW WeightWatchers Pictures, Images and Photos again. I lost 8 pounds my first week. The next week, I lost .4 of a pound. I knew it was all water weight but I still got discouraged and I've been eating whatever since Wednesday. I feel all gross.

Today is OUR anniversary. We had to go to a wedding today and it took up most of the day so we're gonna celebrate tomorrow. But I think we'll end up watching FOOTBALL! ♥ It's been an amazing year. He's the love of my life and constantly inspires me. I couldn't ask for more.

Would you rather go a week without bathing, but be able to change your clothes, or a week without a change of clothes, but be able to bathe?
I would rather be able to bathe and have dirty clothes because at least then I would wash the stink off for a minute. Right?!

If you had to be trapped in a TV show for a month, which show would you choose?
Prolly Gossip Girl.... the clothes.... and Chase Crawford! so hott!

Do you usually wear perfume/cologne? If so, what's your current favorite?
I do wear perfume. Right now I'm diggin' my VS Angel. I really want Dolce & Gabbana The One. It smells so effin' good.

What's the last book you've read that you thought was really good? If you don't have one, what looks promising on your to-be-read list?
I'm reading Good In Bed by the chick that wrote In Her Shoes. Good in Bed is a Cosmo: Ask Jake kinda article. A girl's ex writes bad things about her and she freaks.

Fill in the blank: I wouldn't be caught dead wearing skinny jeans.

If you could completely redecorate any room in your house at no expense to you, what room would you choose?

♥ Our bathroom. It has light blue tile and chocolate brown walls. I've hung a cutesy, matching shower curtain and we've installed a new sink, but I'd love to rip out the tub and tile.

Which hour of the day do you feel goes the slowest?

♥ 3:00. We turn the phones off at 4:30 but people start getting home and calling us at 3:00. It feels like 4:30 will never come.

If your birthday could be in a different month of the year, when would you have it?

♥ July. I'd celebrate every year @ the lake/pool/river/patio.

Of course.

I know who I am. Who are you?

So Mitch and I decided to go fishin' today. He had been working on his boat getting it ready for a few weeks and today was the day. We got my fishin' license online yesterday. This morning, I wasn't real excited to go. It was a pretty day for it..... see:


Mitch baited my hook for me and taught me how to cast my line out. It took me a few times... and I somehow got my line all tangled around the pole. See my bobber:

I thought I wouldn't last long with my ADD and all so I brought along my US Weeklys and iPhone to play with so I wouldn't whine and make Mitch take me home.


But I caught my first fish! He was about 7-8 inches. He was alive and wiggly so Mitch held him for the picture. See:

first fish

My second fish came within the next 5 minutes.

second fish

Then I was over it; read my magazines, enjoyed the breeze, and quiet until Mitch was ready to come home. I don't think I wanna go again tomorrow, but maybe in a few weeks!

Do you screen your phone calls?

Always. I changed my number a few months ago and only gave it to a select few. LOL

When was the last time you lost your temper?

Today. Laziness is one of my pet peeves.

When you're lost, do you ask for directions?

No. My phone has map software. : )

Manic Monday #158

What would you do with an extra hour each day?

I would work out. I can NEVER make it to the gym.

Do you wear a watch? If so, tell us about it. If not, how do you keep track of time?

When I wear a watch, it's my silver Fossil. If I'm not wearing it, I use my phone... I never go anywhere with out my phone.

If it was possible, would you want to know how many days you had left to live?

I would. I'd want to tell the people I love that I love them and spend as much time as I could with them. I'd want to do all the things on my 'bucket list'. Then when I was waiting for the day to come, I'd need lots of Xanax to stay sane. Gah, how morbid!

Heads or Tails....

So the Daily Meme has a blogger's game/prompt called Heads or Tails... you flip a coin and whatever it lands on, that's your writers prompt. I have nothing else to write about so let's try it.

Flip Pictures, Images and Photos

Heads: Legend.

Legend. The man, the myth, the legend.

Mitch and his Copenhagen. Yup... I know. So I know I smoke but I don't hide it. It's like this silly game we play... Mitch hides Copenhagen from me and he gets caught. All the time. At least once a week. Tonight, we were leaving dinner and he had parked next to me and we were walking back to the car and there was this 'dip' laying in the grass near our car. So of course I look in his console and I find.... wait for it.... wait for it... Copenhagen. But it's ok because it wasn't his.... **wink, wink**

I don't care if he does it... just don't hide it from me... so there it is.... the man, the myth, and the legend,,,, Mitch and his Copenhagen.

Chocolate. Anything. Just milk chocolate... not white.... not dark... on pretzels, or bananas or strawberries. ♥ it!

Name one thing that you'd want to receive as a gift for Valentine's day.
Pink golf clubs. (Probably not a good idea because I don't know how to play golf and I'm not sure I wanna learn.)

Can we truly love someone who loves another?
You can love whoever ya want, it would just suck to love someone who didn't love you back. I just don't have that problem. : )

Today sucked, our server crashed. We got it all back around 3. : ) It was scary. I thought we were gonna have to enter all of our patients and charges again. But no. Ok, well I'm ordering chinese for dinner. : )
