A long time overdue
Friday. 5.4.07 1:23 pm
So, I moved out of Laredo and am now residing in Denton. Yay for me and Yay for school. I never thought I'd say that. But, after not going to school for awhile I realized just how much I do want out of school....but after I get that stupid piece of paper.

Leaving wasn't that hard. When my mom came to say bye, that was a bit rough - but I got through it. She's awesome....that woman. A few of my friends and I had a 'goodbye breakfast'. Basically it was just Priscilla and Monica. I had invited Melissa but when the time came - I forgot to call. So, I feel like a bitch and she's upset at me. *sigh* I've called her a few times and she's yet to pick up the phone, but I have left apologetic voicemails and I hope that after awhile she'll forgive me.

As for school? Well, I thought I'd be up here with enough time to get the classes I needed...and I was wrong. I'm still on time for regular registration - but by now most if not all of the classes have either been cancelled or are extremely full. I talked to my Prof's and they said all I have to do is show up on the first day of school and a few afterwards and that they'll manually add me.

In more exciting news: I bought a Guinea Pig. She's white and brown and has the weirdest hair pattern in the world. She loves oranges and hates it when I get out of bed every morning. She's a little scardy cat that one so - I named her Pansy. Which, as I pointed out to my friend who thought that was the most horrible name in the world - it's also a flower. I just bought her some new bedding and since I don't have much money - it's wood shavings of some sort - and I don't believe she appreciated it very much. In a week or so I *should* have enough money to buy her some decent bedding - but at least she's not roaming around in her own poo.

Been hanging out with my best bud most of the time I've been up here. Catch a movie here (Hot Fuzz, 300, and Spiderman 3), eat a little here (STEAK N' SHAKE!!, Whataburger, STEAK N' SHAKE!!), help the youth a little there (Service with a mexican lunch afterwards, Youth Night with Smores, Pizza, and Nature), watch a little Angel/Buffy there. I can't speak for anyone else - but I've been having a good time.

Weirdest thing happened yesterday. My mom called (which, isn't weird) but when I answered the phone, it was my dad (he called from her phone, also - not weird) I was confused as to why he was calling. Did something happen? Is everyone ok? What did I do now? My father called to apologize (this is the weird). A few days ago I had called home letting them know that I was going to renew the lease on my apartment. My mom passed the phone to him and the man went off on me. Basically, I got the "well, if you think you're responsible enough even though you've screwed up before and I don't think you can do it now and I know that once you do this I'll be the one who has to come and pull you out of trouble" lecture. It made me feel like crap since my mom and I had already had a civil conversation about it. So apperently he had been feeling bad about the way he had talked to me and called to apologize. I did of course. But, I'm still spinning about from it.

I feel good about all of this. Being back sets me right. I'm excited about school. Excited about classes. Nervous about the fact that I'll be graduating (if I can pull myself together that much) next May. What do I do? Where do I go? Will I be able to travel? Where will I live? Should I go to Grad School? It's all so nuts. The problem with me is that I have so many choices and i'm incredibly indecisive. My ideal would be to graduate with a teaching job....somewhere (which would start in August) and travel all of Europe that entire summer. But, there's a slew of questions that that brings up as well. Namely, who would I travel with? I love all of my friends - but most if not all wouldn't appreciate Europe the way that I would. Or, would want to exierience it the way that I would. The few that do? I'm not sure we could be together for that long without wanting to throw each other off a Mountain for very long. There's one or two people that would be ideal but I suppose we'll get there if/when we get there.

Not to mention - I'd rather be a librarian than a teacher. I've come to the conclusion that I'm not the best teaching prospect. I feel I'd probably be more properly suited for a librarian gig than anything else. To be a librarian at a public library you need a Masters, which would include Grad School. To be a librarian at a public school you need a teaching certificate thing. I'm not quite sure you need your masters. I think that would suite me just fine until I had enough money to open my store.

Well, I think that's about it.

However, as a side note to all of this:
There are a few on Nutang who have called this place home and feel a real connection to the people who blog on this site. While some can be rough aroud the edges, they care an extraordinary amount for others on here. Hurt feelings and bad moods come and go, friends stick around. Well, longer than those things and if they're true, then they stick around longer than you could hope for. Even if it's just a 'virtual friend'.

Long days
Wednesday. 4.18.07 9:53 pm
So, HEB has been working me really long days. 9+ hour shifts. It's not bad work. Amazingly enough, I've actually met quite a few intresting people while working there.

1)A woman who moved out of New Orleans after Katrina and has since opened up a rather fancy tutoring place here in Laredo. She offered me a job, but alas since I'm leaving back to Denton for school - I couldn't accept.
2)There was another woman who was just a complete pleasure to meet. We chatted about the weather, groceries, life and school. Basic stuff - but she seemed genuinely intrested in my life and at the end of our conversation she shook my hand and thanked me for being a lovely person.
3)Another lady gave me a tip in Walnuts. Fresh from the ground of a walnut tree. She owned me.
4)Some man who goes to india to study Validic (sp?) cultures. The first time I saw him, I thought he was homeless - turns out, he was just uber cool. He also offered me a secretarial job alphabetizing his work (as he was an artist on the side).
5)A lady who lived in South Hampton, United Kingdom who moved from there to here for the man she loved. They met while he was in the navy and she was backpacking across Greece. When they met she was actually homeless and living on a beach near the Athen Mountains. We chatted about how one should REALLY visit Europe.

So, in short HEB has been good to me. Even most of the workers there are really nice. One girl actually kind of adopted me as her best friend. I figure that's kind of cool. She's a divorced mother of two and thus making friends for her is really difficult. One of the other girls doesn't really talk to anyone either. She has only 1 arm and has had some sort of surgery done to her neck which makes understanding her a bit difficult - but she is the sweetest person in the world. She's just really really shy. There's also this guy that I sort of/kind of talk to - whom I would like to talk more to, but - eh *shrug*.

On another note....
I depart from Laredo next Thursday. Apperently, because of my suspension I need an advising code to register for summer sessions at UNT. However, They refuse to give me the code either over the internet or the phone. I have to be advised in peson before I'm allowed to recieve my code. This means being on campus before the 30th of April. So, I'm off. The only thing I regret is not hanging out with my best friend more while I was in Laredo. I love her every so dearly and I miss her which is rediculous seeing as we live in the same city. We were both really busy though, work and all. On the other hand, I'm really glad to be getting back to school...and Denton. Yep.

This song has been stuck in my head for 2 days....

Wait...hell DID freeze over!!
Saturday. 4.7.07 7:21 pm
Luciana. Alana.

My brother got a ticket on Friday. His break lights weren't working. It's gonna be 100 dollars.
My headlights were'nt on. It cost me 200 dollars.

Knight Rider. Snoopy.
I was at Wal-Mart last night. I wanted to make a special box for Kelly since it's her Senior Recital on Wed. As I neared my car I heard someone call to me. I turned around thinking it was a friend and saw someone I didn't know. He approached me and said he had noticed me inside the store. He handed me a slip of paper. His name. His number. Snoopy. "it's ok to have friends". I had no idea what had just happened.
"Hey, well - I'm in town until tomorrow morning and I was wondering if you wouldn't mind showing me around town?"
"um, well there's not much to see and I kind of have some stuff to do"
"well, I wouldn't mind waiting for you - we could go see a movie or something"
"um, no that's alright - and most movie's have already started right about now so..."
"we could just talk then..."

I didn't know how to get away - this has NEVER happened before. It started off alright I guess but, then quickly took a change of pace.
"so, you have a boyfriend?"
"no....lol, you're actually the first guy to ever give me their number"
"what? why?"
"*shrug* dunno"
"wait......you're PURE?!"

and right there I wanted to run, and die somewhere. His eyes opened wide and he all but jumped around like a 5 year old kid at Christmas. It made me feel horrible, dirty, and the farthest thing from 'pure' that I can ever imagine being. I tried to end it, he wouldn't have it. I had my phone in my hand 'cause I had been talking to my brother - he had me call his cell so he would have my number. I dialed it wrong the first time, he asked I do it a second time - I didn't know how to say no. I called. He saved my phone number. I got home and told my brother - he asked if I was alright, said yes, he gave me a hug and asked if I wanted him to buy me some mace. Laughed and said nah, that I was fine. Then, he started calling...and calling...and calling...and calling. I didn't want to meet up with him. I didn't want to talk to him. As I told my friend about it, it made me cry. I have my reasons as to why. Half this/Half that...it doesn't matter. He called me again this morning, I nearly had my manager answer it - but thought that would be MORE rude of me than I was already being.

So, now I'm left wondering. Was this my brain being stupid like it usually is? Blowing something out of proportion which isn't all that big a deal? I mean, he wasn't ugly by any means, in fact, he was rather attractive - but I just spazzed. Was my reacton normal? Or...am I so NOT used to attention from guys that when it's shown I spaz and run away as quickly as humanly possible? I used to run all the time from guys I liked, then I stopped. I had found a guy who was worth keeping as a friend. If this is what dating is like - I'm not sure I want it. Not like that. Call me a stupid little girl with a romantic fantasy in her head - but if it's like that? Psh, count me out.

My dad's surgery went well. At first he had a little complication with all the medication he was on - but they got it fixed in a short amount of time. He got released today but can't yet make the drive home so he'll be staying with my grandma for a week or so. Poor man, he's been through enough. Lol, j/k I heart my grams, she's got a temper on her alright, but she's a good woman. Thank you to all those who kept my dad in their prayers.
