I'm done with Summer quarter! Yay! I'm excited for the month long break, but I know in a week or two I'll be complaining of boredom. I have two classes next quarter and those will keep me plenty busy. Especially with one of them being the first of three advanced ASL classes.

My sunburn has healed completely and I actually have a nice shade of tan. Compared to the pale, blinding white that I usually am, it's nice having tan lines.

It's hot as hell right now. The temp outside is 93° and the thermostat inside my room says it's 90°. I have a small, 9" desktop fan blowing at it's highest speed and I'm still sweating. It's ridiculous being in temps this high without having air conditioning. Hell, Vegas is only 101 right now. And in Phoenix it's only 95. What is wrong with this picture?! It's gotten to the point where I'm tempted to go out somewhere just so that I can be in my air conditioned car for a while.

My friend's BBQ is this weekend. I'm fairly sure she'll ambush me with sunscreen again. This past weekend I went up to her place to hang out and tried to learn how to ride a motorcycle. Keyword is tried. I ended up with 4 bruises on my right leg, two on my left leg, a sore right back and a sore left arm. The 250 dirt bike was a little too tall for me and I was having issues balancing. Since we were going to be out in the sun for a while, she attacked me with her sunscreen beforehand. It worked because we were outside for an hour {not on the bike the whole time; there was a picnic table to paint} and I didn't burn again. I'll be trying again on a smaller dirt bike this weekend.

Ugh, I can't get over this heat right now. Seattle is not supposed to be this hot. Especially since most of the residences are not made with air conditioning. I'm not supposed to be sweating in my own home. Not when I'm sitting completely still. I need to buy ice cream.

Alright, I have nothing else to say really ... I think I'll go back to my failed attempts at keeping cool. The sun sets in an hour and once it's down, hopefully, the room will cool off. I'm definitely going out after the sun goes down. I need to buy food. I've only had a sandwich today and there's nothing to eat in my fridge.

Until next time!

Not a good idea
Monday. 8.6.12 7:08 pm
Being as pale white as I am and knowing how quickly and badly I burn when exposed to the sun for any length of time, I should have known to wear sun screen. Did I? Of course not. With any luck, I've been burned enough to hold a tan for a month before it fades back to an indistinguishable, no evidence remaining, ghostly white.

This past weekend was the final weekend of the Seattle Seafair festivities and I decided to take part. A small part, but a part nonetheless. Jacob and I went to a pier that juts out in to Lake Washington, just north of Leschi Park, to watch the Blue Angels run through their practice show. It was a comfortable 70 something degree afternoon, with the sun blaring down directly from above {it was high noon} and here I am sitting on a pier out in the water without any kind of protection between my skin and the UV rays. I spent the next two days hiding from the sun. I'm still hiding from the sun, but I've had to work so I can only hide so much. It was necessary on Saturday and Sunday, however, because Seattle had record highs. Not exactly the kind of weather I need to be exposed to when burnt the way I was. I'm healing up some, but I've still got a little way to go.

I'm reading Fifty Shades of Grey right now. Bad idea ... It reminds me too much of Twilight, but with much, much, much more graphic details. I thoroughly enjoyed the Twilight books {I refuse to watch the movies} but this just seems off. I'm going to continue reading until I just can't take it any more. Then perhaps now that I'm reading again, I can start reading the books I've been needing to read; the ones I've had for nearly a year now and have yet to open.

It's hot in here right now. It was so nice this morning; cloudy with temps in the low 60s. Then the damned sun came out and it pushed temps in to the 80s. At least it's not as hot as it was yesterday or the day before. When you have no A/C, high temps like that are no bueno.

Let's see ... I am almost done with my summer quarter of school. There will be a month off before fall quarter begins. I still hate my job. Jacob and I are okay, but not okay. It's becoming more complicated again. I wish I had seen Muffy's performance on the Olympics, but I was unable to watch for reasons I can't remember. I watched the Mars Rover, Curiosity, land last night. That was a combination of boring and exciting all packed in to one. I'm broke as all hell. I need to start exercising again.

Yeah, I think that about sums it up.

Long overdue
Friday. 7.13.12 7:47 pm
Oh holy crap. I've been busy!

June has come and gone and I'm doing a lot better. I ended up not really doing anything for my Dad this year. There's always next year.

I am working day shift at work now. It's a lot better than swing shift. Since I've only been doing day shift for two weeks, my body is still adjusting to getting up at 5:15am every day, but it appears to be getting used to it more than my mind is, seeing as how I was awake this morning at 5:20 ... on my own ... on my day off. Oh well. The shift is a lot better for me. I get my afternoons free now.

Except Tuesday and Thursday. Which is when I have class. I'm in ASL 3 now. I have a different teacher than the last two quarters, but he's pretty funny. He's actually the ASL drama teacher so he's very animated. I'm enjoying this class very much. There's a lot more work involved, but it's to be expected.

There's a few things going on in my personal life that I'm not quite prepared to talk about. I kind of want to talk it over with my therapist first before writing something that I might regret later. Although, when it comes to that, I can always go back and delete whatever it is that I've written.

I'm still incredibly broke, but I won't tell my friends just how broke I am. Lets just say I'll be losing some more weight over the next couple weeks. I'll have to see if anyone notices. Probably not. I lost 10 pounds in a matter of weeks, but it took everyone a few months to realize that.

Gosh ... I probably have a lot of catching up to do when it comes to blogs. Perhaps that's what I shall do tomorrow in between homework assignments.

How has everyone been??? Hopefully it won't be as long before the next time I write. I do miss you NuTang ... it's just that life is happening right now!

where's the fast forward button again?
Sunday. 6.3.12 2:49 am
June 12 1956: Dad's birthday.

June 17 2012: Father's Day.

June 30 1995: The day Dad died.

The last one is the reason this month is so hard. Where's the fast forward button?

people signing? run away!
Tuesday. 4.10.12 9:34 pm
So I am only taking one class this quarter. I believe I've mentioned that before so if I have then I am repeating myself. If not, then there ya go. The class is ASL 2 {I am very much enjoying learning ASL} and it's already starting out to be a fun class.

Yesterday we started learning how to give directions. In order to properly learn, we had to know where stuff in the school was actually located so we went on a mini field trip. Now, imagine, if you will, a class full of students {about 27} lined up in a college hallway with the teacher standing in front of them. Now imagine how people react to this, except with the teacher and students signing to each other.

People freak out! Most people just walked in between, which is the right thing to do. Some students just stood there like a deer in headlights until the teacher had to stop teaching and wave them through. That was funny on it's own. However, there was this one girl ... I don't know what possessed her to react this way, but it was too funny! She literally squeaked then ran through us. Ran. Full on sprint in between us and the teacher. We all stopped, stared and laughed. The reaction that everyone had was like, "what the fuck just happened?" It was seriously funny watching how people reacted.

This week is good. It's mostly review from last quarter, but there's some new material: stuff that we didn't get to cover last quarter due to the snow. I am looking forward to next week when we start up with all new material. We'll be starting with family signs. I already know basics: mom, dad, son, daughter, husband, wife, etc. We'll be re-learning those along with extended family signs: cousins, aunts, uncles, etc. So I'm definitely excited for that.

Other than that, I'm incredibly broke. As in my bank account is very much negative. And I don't get paid until the 20th. Ah, this should be a very boring almost two weeks. Guess this will give me time to get ahead on homework. And also keep watching more episodes of Bones. Which, unfortunately, the procrastinator in me will probably prioritize above homework. Oh well. Old habits are hard to break.

Yeah, I guess that's it for now. How is everyone doing?
