My new schedule at work gives me a week off every month. My week off for this month started last Thursday and ends this week. Tomorrow is my last day off and then back to work. I think it was a bad idea to give me a whole week off and expect me to come back. Don't get me wrong, I usually like my job, but after having spent a week not having to deal with office drama, it's going to be tough to go in Thursday. I had a great time off though. It was one of the best weeks I've had in awhile.

In other news, I heard on tv the other day that Jim Demint, the newly elected senator, says that unwed pregnant women and gays are unfit to be schoolteachers. What a crazy statement! I don't think someones sexual preference or marital status have anything to do with how well they can teach. I think we're lucky to get people to teach at all. The amount of money that teachers make is ridiculous. I can't even tell you how many people I met in college that would make great teachers, but ended up choosing different majors because they didn't want to live off of such a small salary. If we could learn to pay teachers what they are worth, our education system would improve so much. Here in SC, that's something we really need. I think out education system is ranked 48th or 49th in the US right now. That's pretty sad.

8:18 pm - my horoscope for today
"These next few weeks will emphasize your verbal skills in the romance department. Normally a bit silver-tongued, you can now easily become a smooth-talking con artist, talking others right into your heart. It is okay to use your mind to get love, but make sure you don't end up conning yourself in the process."

interesting...

Working on holidays is no fun. At least it's not too busy today. The weather today is horrible too, so I don't mind being stuck indoors. Had a great weekend in Greenville. I finally got to see a friend that I haven't seen in about 9 months. Good times.

I love working Saturdays at my new job. I'm basically being paid to watch tv. Even better than that, I only have about 10 hours left until I'm on my way to Greenville. Yay!! I love going to Greenville. Hopefully one day soon I'll be living there. Last time I was there I picked up an apartment finder to see if I could even afford to live there and it looks like I can. I'm changing a lot in my personal life and it would be great to get a new start in a new town.

My computer is finally working now! That means that I have internet access at home again. Yay!!
Today was an alright day. I stayed home sick from work today. I spent the entire day in bed. It was awesome. I haven't had any sleep since...last tuesday, I think. Yeah, it was last tuesday. I went out wednesday and thursday with the usual people. On friday I went out with my roommates and a friend of one of theirs. The friend turned out to be a really nice guy. We've been hanging out and talking a lot, so he'll probably be mentioned again soon. But for now..there's a new episode of the real world on so I gotta run.

current mood: calm

Yay!! Today's my birthday!

I started celebrating yesterday at work when some coworkers took me out for lunch and margaritas. After work I went to a bar with some friends of mine. Some of my roommates showed up a little while later and partied with us. I got serenaded by a bunch of drunk guys on the porch of the bar. Some of them were so drunk they couldn't remember the words to happy birthday. How funny is that?

This morning I woke up at 7:15 to make sure one of my roommates woke up in time for work. When I went to wake him, I found out that he was already in the shower. I tried like hell to go back to sleep but it didn't happen. When he got out of the shower I said a few mean things to him and then went to find something to do.

I ended up washing my car and I'm getting ready to go vacuum it out. It hasn't been washed in forever, so it looks awesome. Too bad I'm going to drive 2 1/2 hours tomorrow and get it all dirty again. Oh well!

After the car thing, I'm going shopping with one of my roommates and then out for drinks. I think a bunch of other people are going to meet up with us a little later.

Wow, I've really rambled. Bye!

7:12 pm - Can't blame me for trying...
so, i have this friend
well, we used to be friends
we haven't talked in a couple weeks
we had a falling out of sorts
i haven't thought about this person since the last time i got an email
but, the other day, as some of our mutual friends were at my house,
i started to think about this person
and how ackward things could turn out to be since we're not talking
so i decide to be nice and try to talk to this person again
i figured that it would be easier for us to forget about the bullshit and just be civil since we have so many mutual friends
so i comment on something he says
and i get no response
then i im him
and get no response
i try im'ing him one more time
and still no response
so all i have to say is, i tried
and any wierd ackward feelings occur the next time we just happen to be in the same town again
(next weekend)
are not my fault
that's all

Ouch...ouch...ouch
my head feels like it's about to explode
i had an awesome time last night though
i went barhopping with a friend of mine
the last bar we ended up was having "karaoke night"
i've never karaoked in public before
but last night after the endless amounts of beer
and the many, many shots of tequila,
i finally got the nerve to try it
and it was awesoeme!
the first one i did was "margartiaville"
i had a friend of mine sing it with me though because
i was worried about how bad my voice would sound
then i sang a dixie chicks song with this one girl
she told me that she knew the song
it turns out that she didn't
so after two seconds of trying to figure it out,
she left to go get another beer
i finished the song by myself and everyone cheered for me
i think that it was because everyone was as drunk as i was
but nonetheless, it was fun!
i got home at 6:30 this morning
and immediately crashed
i just woke up a little while ago
i'm waiting for it to be 3:00 so that i can go play pool
at this one bar with my new roommates.
hope everyone else had a good friday night!

12:03 am - public service announcement
april is child abuse prevention month
so the next time you see a parent beating the daylight out of their child in public,
smack the shit out of them and remind them what month it is
if i hadn't had my little sister with me, i would have done that to this woman i saw earlier today...

today I found out that my ex boyfriend is getting married
(sigh)
i know that it won't last, but it still sucks
just a few months ago he kept telling me that he wanted to get back together, and I'm the one who kept telling him that I didn't want him back
and I am happier without him, but it's kind of like a slap in the face to know that now he's happier than i am
here he is, getting married and making plans for the future
and here i am, single as can be
and no real plans for the future
don't get me wrong though, i'm happy i'm not married
i'm only 21 (22 in exactly a month) so i'm way too young to be tied down like that
okay, enough of my complaining...

wow...
i haven't updated this thing in forever

anyway, i had a really good weekend
spent friday night at a friends house and then at the bar
(what else is new)
then saturday i went to greenville and celebrated with everyone
i thought the night was going to be pretty boring considering the circumstances, but it was actually really fun
thanks to brad, i wasn't completely sober the whole night
and thanks to april later that night, nobody was sober
today i helped everyone clean part of the house
and then ryan made breakfast for all of us
we then drove back to charleston and that's where we are now
the tire place didn't have the right size tires for the car ryan is borrowing, so he can't take it home yet
it looks like i'll be driving to columbia tomorrow to trade cars with them
anyway, i need to go clean and do laundry and other borrowing things...

11:44 pm - random ramblings
it's amazing how your life can be turned upside down in a matter of 30 days. everything has changed. i'm living in a new (and temporary) place. the old place (meaning roommate) just wasn't working out. there was to much drama involved in that. so i got out. and now i'm looking for another place. everyone says that i need a change of pace in a new place, but i'm not so sure. we'll see what happens.

in other news, i went to an awesome show the other night. i saw four bands - flying tiger (i think that's their name), fu manchu, headstrong, and injecte. it was bad ass. well, what i remember of it. i drank way too much that night and don't remember the last part of the night. i went to the bar tonight to see a friend and only drank about half a beer. i don't ever want to be like i was last weekend (not again). it really sucks to wake up and not remember what you did the night before. i was somewhat responsible though. i had my wonderful designated driver with me the whole time to keep an eye on me.

well, time for bed...
