EDIT: I just dropped my professional helping skills class on Monday nights. I really wanted to take that. We needed 40 hours of outside work for that class and we had a few choices and I really think God wanted me to work at PADS, but I dropped the class because I am a bad person. I just really want to get out of here and decided to take intro to anthropology instead. It will count towards my A.A. Degree and it will also transfer if I get into somewhere next year, God willing. I just really need to take classes that I know will help me get through college. I can always take that class some other time. But because I wanna get out of here for next year, next semester will consist of 15 IAI credit hours. So 3 IAI hours last semester, plus 12 this semester, plus 15 next semester, plus two years of ASL in high school, plus me working my butt off this semester and next semester = hopefully getting into Eastern. Pray for me!
Well, it’s about high time I write another entry in this puppy.
About a week ago, God decided to bless me with a TON of acne. It’s ALL over my chin and near my mouth. It’s gross. And normally I don’t really care, but it’s never been this bad before. Plus I was starting school and I don’t want peoples’ first thought abotu me to be “Wow, she’s really zitty.” And it hasn’t gone away yet either.
I don’t think I mentioned I went to the doctor about two weeks ago and when they weighed me, it said I had lost 2lbs. And this was since I stopped working at Great America. Which is crazy, cuz I was COMPLETELY dormant in those three weeks. So so far I have lost 6lbs. Come on, body, you’re doing great, only 12 more to go, keep going!!! Does anybody else think it’s funny that the murder victim in “Clue” is named Mr Body?”
I started school on Monday. I like my oceaography teacher. He’s really funny. And he said “I know you guys aren’t interested in oceanography. But the associate of arts degree requires secen credit hours in science and at least one of them has to be a lab and of course you can’t take TWO of them. So after you take environmental biology, you can’t take physics, cuz that’s like a foreign language. So you take oceanography.” And I laughed, cuz that is my EXACT plan. Except I decided to take oceaonography FIRST. Environmental bio is coming later hehe. He also thinks there’s a highlighter colour called “statutory grape.”
Karina from work is in my abnormal psych class. This should be a good class, I am excited.
I found Meghan Yonkers!! She’s been hiding in Deerfield for the past few years, but now she’s at CLC.
English comp 1. Hmm…my teacher is fun, but you can totally tell she just came from teaching high school. We had to do an icebreaker and we did another one on Wednesday. Then on Wednesday and Friday we read a passage and made posters for what it was about. We;re gonna have to do an I-Search paper. Son of a cow!
It turns out that my American pop culture class is a HISTORY of American pop culture class. And my teacher is boring. Rawr.
I heard from Amanda on like Tuesday. I was surprised. She just wanted to say hi. She’s got all her classes on Tues and Thurs (as does Shellie…which sucks). I saw her friend Shannon yesterday. Or ex friend. I don’t even know.
I talked to Chauncey. I don’t know what day that was. Wednesday maybe. Well he realise he might not have to go over seas afterall, because he’s not under contract for his unit ‘up here.’ He’s only under contract with his unit in South Carolina. So he may not be going afterall, woohoo!! He may also move back to South Carolina when he gets divorced. And that is fine with me, as long as he doesn’t have to go fight in this stinking war.
I talked to Ari about the woman in the previous entry. He was going to ask his dad, until I told her that her profile said jewsforjesus.com and he said it’s .org. So yeah.
I used my financial aid to buy an issue of Psychology Today for my own personal use. Does that make me a bad person?
Once I realised that by next fall, I actually WILL have 30+ credits, I gave in and decided to check out Eastern. I actually want to go there now. That’s crazy. But it would be better, cuz it’d only cost half as much as anywhere else I would go. Plus they take ASL as foreign language credit, so I wouldn’t have to take another language there. I really want to go there now. I hope they let me.
Yesterday I skipped my American pop culture class so I could come home and attempt to removed a piece of glass from the bottom of my foot (it’s still there grr) and take a nap before leaving for Milwaukee. Kelly and I found the arena pretty easily. Parking was right across the street and the lot status was about 70% haha. So we got a really good parking spot and it didn’t take forever to leave either. When we got there, we expected our seats to be nosebleeds, but the arena was so small that we could almost see his face from where we were sitting!!! He didn’t have a warm up act, it was just him. However, he did a duet with a girl from the audience and he let each of his backup singers have their own song and another song where they all had a solo in it and he sang backup during those songs. It was awesome. I have so much respect for him. Also, he sang a song about Jesus. Hooray. There was one thing though…when he sang “I Survived You,” he sang it differently than I’ve ever heard him sing it before. He sang it with more emotion. He sang it like somebody who has experienced that would sing it. And I always thought it was about having a bad dating relationship (I always think of Brandon when I hear it), but he hasn’t had time for a relationship. He went from one tour to another. And we would have heard about it anyway. So then my psych major self sat there and tried to analyze him to figure out what has happened in his life recently to make him sing it like that. And then it hit me—his birth dad died. And he didn’t work things out with him. There we go!
So then after the concert we saw his tour bus and a lot of people standing near it. Kelly wanted me to find a place to park so we could go meet him, but I don’t think that’s right to do that. It’s one thing if he’s in a store doing an autograph signing, it’s another to stand around and wait for him. Plus I wanted to get home. I’m not going to write about it, cuz it’s just going to make me mad, but my mom sucks at giving directions and it wound up taking two extra hours to get home cuz we got lost. Grrr. But we stopped at a couple gas stations and EVENTUALLY got home.
I am the Charmer
Charm is seduction without sex. Charmers are consummate manipulators, masking their cleverness by creating a mood of pleasure and comfort. Their method is simple; they deflect attention from themselves and focus it on their target. They understand your spirit, feel your pain, adapt to your moods. In the presence of a Charmer you feel better about yourself. Learn to cast the Charmer’s spell by aiming at people’s primary weaknesses: vanity and self-esteem.
Symbol: The Mirror. Your spirit holds a mirror up to others. When they see you they see themselves: their values, their tastes, even their flaws. Their lifelong love affair with their own image is comfortable and hypnotic; so feed it. No one ever sees what is behind the mirror.
