my brain is melting!
Monday. 10.26.09 6:02 pm
So I'm learning a foreign language right now: Japanese. Jake got the Rosetta Stone on his computer and then transfered it to mine. It's a lot of fun learning how to read and say things, but after a while your head starts to hurt and you have to take a break. There's a lot to it and a lot of repetitive stuff so it's easier to pick up, but it's just a lot to take in all at once. Fun, but it melts your brain!

I need to buy a microphone for my computer, though. The speaking part of the lessons are kind of hard when you have no way of communicating to your computer. Hopefully I'll be able to find a good, cheap one at Wal-Mart or Best Buy or something. Someone told me Radio Shack had good ones, but they're not always cheap.

Anywho, I'm considering downloading Google Chrome. I like IE, but it's been giving me some issues lately. Certain websites, only part of the website will load. Then FF is good for some things, but that one works even less often than IE. Idk. Any suggestions on what I should go with or stick with?

Halloween is Saturday. Have I got any plans? Of course not. I was invited to a costume party, but I won't be attending for two reasons: one, I don't have a costume and two, it's against the "no fraternizing" rule my work has. It's a stupid rule, but I could lose my job if I'm caught and get involved in drama. I've already been talked to about showing interest in hanging out with certain people. Its not worth it to lose my job.

Alright, so I've pretty much got everyone up to speed. I spent this past weekend learning Japanese. I still have a long way to go. I'm only on Level 1, Lesson 2. There's three levels, 4 lessons in each level and multiple subsections in eash lesson. It's a definite time killer. It's one of the main reasons Jacob chose it. He's got nothing but time on his hands right now.

Until next time NuTang. . .

a hypocritical rant
Thursday. 10.22.09 7:51 pm
Have you ever complained about someone else complaining? Yeah, that's what I like to do. Well, I don't necessarily know if I actually like doing it, so to speak, but I tend to do it a lot.

I was thinking about it today when I started complaining about one of the drivers complaining. I'm sure most people do it without even realizing they're being hypocrites. Every so often I'll acknowledge that I'm doing it, but most of the time, I'll just start complaining ...

But since this is my time to be a hypocrite, I'm going to bitch and moan about other people who do it to me.

This one driver, in particular, likes to think he's right when it comes to everything. And if someone tells him he's doing it wrong, he'll complain that they're just jealous. He likes to point out other people's flaws and just because he's good at his job, he thinks he should get special treatment. He'll complain to me about how he's doing what his boss is asking of him, but how he never seems to make his boss happy, even though he's supposedly doing everything that's being asked of him. I'm getting really sick of listening to his bullshit. Some of the stories I don't even want to believe anymore. Either because every story he tells ends up the same way {he somehow manages to get out of having to pay some sort of fee or gets money back on a purchase he supposedly didn't make, but was charged for anyway, blah blah blah} or I just have too many trust issues. Either way, I'm tired of listening to the same stuff every day.

Then when I don't want to get involved in a conversation with him, apparently it's because I'm grumpy. I understand that I'm known for being talkative, but I do have days where I just don't feel like talking to anyone. But apparently on those days, I'm having a bad day, regardless if I actually am or not. I'm questioned and interrogated and accused "why aren't you talking?" "what's wrong?" "are you having a bad day?" " do you want to talk about it?" "why are you so grumpy today?" "why aren't you talking?" "don't worry, it'll get better." And the oh so classic "I'm here if you need to talk."

What the hell makes you people assume I'm bothered by something simply because I don't want to talk your ear off today? Sure, I may not be smiling, but I hardly ever am. What would the day I'm not talking make a difference?

Whatever.

I know for a fact that I'm going to continue being hypocritical because as long as people complain to me, I'm going to complain about it to other people. It's just the way it works.

But for now, I'm done being a hypocrite ... for the night anyway. Until next time NuTang ...

curses
Tuesday. 10.20.09 6:02 pm
I've been doing it again; cursing more than I should. Well, if you want to get technical, I shouldn't be cursing at all, but most people do so I guess I'm just overdoing it as of late.

Anywho, I was recalling some of the conversations I had today and I realized that most of them had profanities more than just crap, damn and hell. It makes me sound kinda trashy ... especially when I'm talking to someone who doesn't use profane language. I said a while ago that I'd work on not cursing so much. I don't actually know if I worked on it at all. If I did, then it's gotten worse again.

I like when it's cool/cold outside. I don't like when it's hella windy. Like it was yesterday, last night and today. The wind finally settled down sometime around 3 or 4 in the afternoon. Hopefully it'll stay away for a while. Or keep it from getting hot again until next year. This past weekend the highs were up in the 90s. No wonder people get sick around this time of year. One day its in the 90s, two days later its in the mid 60s and windy.

Gotta love mother nature.

In other news, I'm still addicted to Facebook. I was like this with that website when I fist joined, but then I got really sick of it and ignored the site for close to a year, going on maybe once or twice a month and only to delete invites and look through my notifications. But then people at work started joining and I was like, alright fine, I'll go back on and add all you people.

It's an annoying addiction, but just like with any other addiction, I can't just stop. Or I could, but I'd have to find something else equally occupying to keep me from going on it. Nutang is a healthy addiction. It's productive. Planting fake seeds and building up faux homes and rides is not exactly productive. At least I'm not quite as bad as I was a couple years ago. I don't take every quiz under the sun to 'see if I'm like this person' or 'if I fit into this character' or 'what does this specific date mean to me,' etc. I also don't update my status like it's Twitter.

To those who are on Twitter, I have nothing against you. It's just that I, personally, do not like that website and will never join. I also have nothing against the people who update their facebook status' on a constant basis. Hell, if anything it gives me something new to read while I'm on there, feeding into my addiction.

Yeah, I'm not sure where that mini-rant was going, but I've lost my train of thought. Oh well. Until next time NuTang ...

unintentional hiatus. ooops
Sunday. 10.18.09 10:26 am
I just realized I haven't been on here since earlier in the week. Its not really like I have anthing going on, but ... Idk. Maybe I was trying too hard to come back that I subconsciously overloaded myself? What the hell am I saying? That doesn't even make any sense.

I've been hanging out with Jacob, but mostly just on the weekends. I went over there once during the week and I payed for it the next day because I hadn't gotten home with enough time to get more than a couple hours of sleep before work.

We saw Zombieland on Friday. It was funny. A little on the gorey side, but funny either way. Its definitely a movie I recommend if you can handle the gore. After the movie we stopped at Wal-Mart cuz I was looking for a movie and his mom needed aluminum foil. While we were there, we felt it necessary to buy Twinkies. If you've seen the movie, you'll understand.

I really don't want to go back to work tonight, but hey, the rent {and every other bill I have} isn't going to pay itself. So I'll be just diving back into my routine. I should probably work on a new routine.

Alrighty, I really don't have a whole lot to say...

a brief change in routine {EDIT}
Monday. 10.12.09 6:49 pm
This is an insight into how lame my current life really is. Just to let you all know.

Tomorrow is laundry day. Nothing changing in that particular routine. But I am determined to go one day without getting on the internet. I won't turn my computer off because I do still have a few offline games on here, but I just feel like taking a one day break from the internet is necessary.

Shit. I just thought about it ... I talk to someone on facebook every day. Alright, so I'll go on just long enough to respond to the note and then exit out of the browser.

Instead I have a couple DVDs from Blockbuster that have been sitting on my cabinet for about a month now that are in need of being watched. This way too I can return them and get the next few DVDs in my queue. I don't like sending movies back without watching them first.

I won't be texting anyone tomorrow either. A couple months ago that particular task would have been really hard to resist. As of lately, however, it doesn't seem that difficult. Seeing as how I've gone quite a few days with only texting a couple times ... my amount of sent and received text messages has gone down considerably over the last month. A good thing, though. It means I'm not running down my battery every few days.

This is where it becomes sort of lame. I even planted seeds on Farmville that take a couple days to grow just so that I won't be tempted to go on in order to save my crops from dying. Lame right?

Yeah, that's pretty much all I've got right now. I was going to rant about work, but I lost the steam for it even before I started the entry. Oh well. It'll only be a matter of time before something else happens that pisses me off.

{EDIT} Alright, so I admit I have a problem. I think the only way for me to not be on the internet is if it suddenly stopped working. And that's after I try for a good while to get it back working again before I give up. I like the way randomjunk put it once. She said that I'm addicted to communication technology. Hey, looking at the positive side, at least I'm only addicted to the computer and the phone. And not drugs and/or alcohol.

133.4
Saturday. 10.10.09 10:27 pm
I am not one of those typical women who will get offended if you ask my age or my weight. I haven't anything to be embarrassed or bothered by so I just answer truthfully. So yes, the title of this entry is how much I weigh as of today.

It's probably about a pound less since that weight was taken at around 3 in the afternoon.

I know that I've been losing weight, but when I saw that number I didn't think it had been that much. For some reason I thought I was still up over or around 135. Before Jacob's surgery, I weighed about 138-140. So 7 pounds lost in less than two weeks. Isn't that supposed to be bad? I'm not entirely sure, but I'm not really complaining. I want the weight to go down under 130. I guess I'm just a little surprised at the number because I can't really see the difference in the mirror. Either way. Maybe I can lose the other three pounds over the upcoming week.

Yesterday was a good day. Jacob was feeling good which meant he was in a good mood. He pushed himself a little too far because of it and I have a feeling he was paying for it today. Which didn't exactly help keep him in the highest of spirits. So today was not as good as yesterday.

I'm pretty tired, even though I didn't do much of anything today. I think it's time for me to sleep. I have to be up sort of early tomorrow anyway.
