Wedding stuff is fun.

Sometime this week we should see our engagement pictures!!!

Paying for the wedding is not so fun...

[March 21st]
[ mood | excited ]


And you wanna know what...Collapse )

I love John, and everything about him. I am so excited about everything that is going to happen in our future! The ring is very pretty. He suprised me with it on our one year anniversary at Villa. He gave it to the waitress and had her put it in my ice cream. :) I said YES!, of course.


[February 25th]
I hate when people don't listen to me.

Why do dumb people get good jobs?

[February 19th]
I decided that there is way too much competition in the job-seeking world, so I am going to make myself more desirable for employers. To get an interview for a job up here, I think, I need to know more about health care, anatomy, basically all health related issues. The main employer up here is MGH, so I am going to study health care and know more about the body. I just bought a couple books on eBay just to read up and improve my knowledge. I have 5 days off this week and I don't want to sit on my butt while I wait for a job. I want the job to sit on its butt looking for me :).

...Knowledge is power (and a job).

[February 7th]
Walked into Shopko today and looked at my schedule, you could blink twice and miss it. I work a whole wonderful 2 days. Not wonderful actually, pretty crappy in fact. It kind of freaked me out, no it really freaked me out. Drove back to the apartment and sat down on the couch and decided to look all over the internet for a job, any job really. I am a college graduate and a very smart person, but with the way this economy is shaping up job choices are not looking too plentiful. Eleven hours, can you believe it? I need to find a new job, before it was pretty manditory to find a full time good job. Now, it is even more crutial. My next task is to e-mail every place I want to work with my resume and want to join their business. Taking extreme measures is a good wager on personality. I want to be successful and I will be successful. I actually thought about interning some place just to get experience... Not a bad idea, but I am a graduate, not an under-grad anymore. That really shouldn't matter, but it has caused problems already. So more force, determination, and will.


By February 23, I will have a full-time job.

[January 26th]
At first, I thought that having big businesses go down the drain was a bad thing... Now, not so much. It's good, well at least in the long run that these businesses are having problems. Not good for right now being that several thousands are getting fired and stuff. Good in the part that small businesses who couldn't compete now can!!! It allows for innovation. What are these engineers who are being laid off going to do? They can invent cars they want to invent. Likewise with so many other businesses. All the top 3 car companies screwed themselves over. Investing too much in crappy cars. Toyota has 3 major car companies, Toyota, Lexus, and another one. Ford has land rover, mercury, nissan, and a bunch of higher quality vehicles which don't turn a profit. Why not just get back to just FORD, dump the junk?

But as I was saying... Big business came to town one day and knocked all the small businesses out of the water. Now big business is in distress so small businesses can take advantage.

I guess the biggest question I always ask is why? Why would somebody do something? Why do things turn out in certain ways? Just why. That is always a good question to ask, but the time you realize why are you finally satisfied? The answer to that is no, because you want to know why for the answer and why for the next answer. So this leaves me perplexed. If there is never really any understanding of "why", is any thing really ever going to be resolved? Maybe it's just me, but there are a lot of things that I don't understand and I really want to understand why they happened. Maybe from my perspective i don't understand why. Maybe I just think it is cool to sound like a philosopher.

In October my Aunt Carole died. It was sad, the sadder part was that my Uncle Walt just couldn't cope with it. He wanted not to live any more and wanted to be with her. December 19, he died of heart failure. It reminds me of the song by Heidi Newfield, "Johnny and June".

"I wanna love like Johnny and June, Rings of fire burnin' with you, I wanna walk the line, Walk the line, 'Till the end of time, I wanna love, Love ya that much, Cash it all in, Give it all up, When you're gone, I wanna go too, Like Johnny and June

Like Johnny and June, And when we're gone, There'll be no tears to cry, Only memories of our lives, They'll remember, remember, A love like that."

[October 20th]
This week really has been full of ups and downs. But, I would like to say that the ups really outweighed the downs. I talked to John a lot over the past couple days to wee hours in the morning. I really like talking to him and figuring out more about him.

I have been reading this book called Blink, it's about people who can make split second decisions and be really accurate with their decision. It is really interesting. I left it at Shopko and I am kind of bummed because I want to read more. I underlined and circled a bunch of stuff I wanted to learn more about. I am really glad I bought this book. If you want a book to read it is like $6.88 at the bookstore in the mall.

I graduate in less than 2 MONTHS!!! I really am excited. I am thinking about graduate school... but, I think it would be better to get a job for a couple years and have THEM pay for graduate school. This girl ain't dumb ;)

John got me flowers the other day for sweetest day. That is the first time EVER I got flowers, it was nice. This guy is pretty amazing, I love him. And this time it's not settling, it's wanting him to be in my life fora long timeever.

[August 27th]
I can't wait to get the Bronco back on the road, I am very excited about that. I can take the top off. I really want to do that at least once before there is snow on the ground. Then the mustang can go back and home leak all the power steering it wants. Got the keys for the Explorer made, so sometime today it should be ready to drive. Then I can sell it. It is amazing what people won't buy because of no keys, lol. Now, I can actually put it for sale!

I applied for a job at American today. I think they may have called me but my voice mail on my new phone isn't set up. So that would be cool to have a job there after I graduate. Speaking of graduating...I am graduating in December! Had this whole fiasco with figuring out who my advisor was and if I could graduate. Finding out who my advisor is was a lot harder than knowing if I was graduating. I knew I was graduating, just had to figure out if they were on the same wavelength.

So I am finally "officially" moving in to MQT...

And all is the same in school & work. School is going decent. I am basically at NMU all day Mon & Wed, then have one class Tues & Thurs. I work Tues, Thurs, and the weekend at Shopko. I really have to fit Vector in there somewhere...Speaking of which, does anybody need some knives???

[June 3rd]
I find it amusing, how I can walk in to ShopKo and get glared at by one cashier all the time. It really doesn't worry me at all, but I am curious why in the last 3 months this just started happening. Enough airtime for this matter, on to more important subject matter.

I am sitting behind Abe Lincoln. Actually, it is a statue of good ol Abe and boy, is he really tall. I wonder if the statue is scaled for his actual size of if it is bigger than he was. I would want a statue of me in the UC. I would have my hair standing up in a mohawk, dressed to a T. I would want my statue right next to Abe, and I could be holding a sign that says, "yup, this is Abe's actual height." Definitely.

I have to get a new rear wheel for my bike so I can bike around Marquette and not drive to NMU. Biking at 7:00 in the morning could be great fun with a backpack full of books and the computer. I just have to remember how to ride a bike again.

...let's talk about bandwagon friends. I never thought I was such a horrible person, heck, I still don't think I am a horrible person. Too bad everybody else feels so frickin' angry and think I am such a horrible person. And to them I want to say, if you were in my shoes, you would have done the same darn thing. Too bad people are ignorant.

[May 21st]
I am kind of annoyed this morning and I really don't know why. Something that annoys me the most is when somebody intentionally hides something from me. Shopko is my main frustration right now. I think it is clearly stupid that John and I will have to have opposite shifts. Very stupid. But, right now we pretty much do have opposite shifts, so what the heck. It's not like nobody else from Shopko hangs out, outside the store. So of course, two of their better employees get singled out.

[April 21st]
Today is beautiful, pretty much the perfect day in terms of weather, company, and not having to go to school. I am feeling better as to all that was going on yesterday and I am getting over how some people are. It will probably take time for them, so I will leave well enough alone.

There is just so much I want to do this summer, and not enough time. I am going to go at this summer like a head on collision. I am thinking some dog shows, beach, and maybe some concerts, along with work and summer classes. Not looking forward to the summer classes too much, but I have to take them to graduate in December. I am going to have a good summer, that's my plan.

I just really want to get away from pretty much everything and everyone (except those special few), it's taking a toll on me. I keep telling myself every day that I am strong enough to deal with this, and I think am - it is hard, but I am very happy at the same time.

"Go ahead and take your best shot,Let 'er rip, give it all you've got,I'm laid out on the floor, but I've been here before,I may stumble, yeah I might fall,Only human aren't we all?I might lose my way, but hear me when i say

I will stand back up,Youll know just the moment when ive have enough,Sometimes im afraid, and i dont feel that tough,But I'll stand back up

I've been beaten up and bruised, I've been kicked right off my shoes, Been down on my knees more times than youd believe, When the darkness tries to get me,Theres a light that just wont let me, It might take my pride, and my tears may fill my eyes, But I'll stand back up

I've weathered all these stroms, But i just turn them into wind, so i can fly, What dont kill you makes you stronger"

On a lighter note...a little more random...and weird. my mom started cleaning my room...yeah.not cool. :\

a little vague.but i am getting there.

[April 3rd]
I guess now is a good time to write a post; it seems like it could be. I don't have a lot to talk about because I have to figure it out for myself first, but, I am almost there, though. Pretty close.

Maybe I just make everything too hard on myself?

Some random bumblings...

I worked friday and saturday, sold 2 protection plans but only one really counts because the other one i sold was to an employee.

I went to see Semi-pro with some hooligans after bowling. From what I saw of it, it wasn't great. I kinda fell asleep halfway through (it was a 10-midnight movie) but I did see the ending, lol. I bowled decent though: 117, 117, and 150.

The bronco almost has 150,000 miles on it; only about 70 more miles... I am kind of excited.

I have to buy tickets to the Ragweed show in MN before March 15. I am really looking forward to that!

[February 24th]
I had fun this weekend.

Went bowling, got 164, 98, and 122. Then stopped at taco bell and ate. I was going to go to the matrixx for a little bit, but that got sidetracked...I really just wanted to get out and dance, see some friends, and all that good stuff, but ended up getting into a little fight and just ended up going home. Which got me to thinking some more...

Then Saturday I went to the outhouse races. I want to build an outhouse and race it :) Then we got home to find that my brother took my bronco. Not cool. So I went to MQT, then went sleddin', and went to taco bell (again) after that, as I remember. I have some pretty awesome friends...what could be better than outhouse races and sleddin?

Got up this morning, went to MQT. Got a book and a couple shirts and then went to shopko. I worked on the uscan and the only thing worse than having a headache is having a headache and listening to the uscan machines talking repeatedly. I went to work after that.

[February 21st]
I am so glad February is a short month; I am kinda waiting for spring to be here...and the mud ;) and get the mustang out...

I got my shopko shift reduced from 25 hours a week to 11 this week, so it isn't that bad. Classes are going good. My marketing class sucks...big time, it takes way too much of my free time, but the other two are alright. Work at the clinic is still the same ol same.

My main focus has been Uncle Ronco, followed by school, then work.

I feel like I will probably end up doing something stupid tonight...awww well, thats what makes life interesting, eh.

Today I was going 65 in a 55 and blew by 3 cops...and none of them took a second look. I must be lucky.

[February 2nd]
Got to work today (2/1) and pretty much the first person in line was an older guy, late 60's-80's. He comes up with his items (I think they were storage containers) and I scan them. I get done scanning them and take him money, then I give him the receipt. He looks at me with a wondering look and asks me if I "work tomorrow". So I answer back, "no". Then he tells me "wake up early and roll out of bed... "and go to church". What am I suppose to say to that? Uhhh. So I tell him to have a good day.

Go to church... Nah. I am really not a fan of believing what other people want me to believe. I am far too stubborn for that. It was kind of eerie though, who tells a cashier to go to church?

Then...it only gets better. I had a guy from the indian reservation come through my line. He brings up a check for 105 and says that he can get some percentage for school and the other percentage for sporting goods and what not. I scan his stuff, put his check through and he decides that he really doesn't want to pay the extra amount and has his kid decide what he wants...blah, blah, blah. After about 15 minutes the guy decides to pay the difference with cash. Then I get to go on break. The supervisor comes over and the man asks if she could make another receipt (because the one that was printed had voids and adds and was "ugly" i guess). I don't know what she did, but it was a pain...

Sometimes at work I have to tie a smile on. Today wasn't the greatest, I didn't have too much sleep. I kind of felt bad because it seemed like some other people at work weren't having that great of day either.

Tomorrow I gotta drive to garden corners. I'm not really sure what to think about that. It could be fun, who knows. I think I picked the wrong group. Ahh, well.

Sunday I have to meet with my group in another class. Then I am watchin' the superbowl with some friends.

[January 28th]
I picked up my guitar again, it was kind of lost in my room... It sounds pretty good, I just have to learn some songs now.

Yesterday, I changed the bronco's oil, then today I was messin' around with tailgate to see if I could find out what is wrong. No luck. I am gonna have Dustin look at it.

I am trying, still, to recoop from the week. I had today off, so that was fun.
