Things that annoy me

This is a list of things that annoy me or that I don't like. I read a book with a list similar and I wanted to list my own.

Being shushed. I absolutelty HATE it. I mean if it's from an authority figure or someone much older than me and is in charge, that's fine. But if it's someone my age who has NO authority over me, or in a situation where it doesn't matter; I get livid. It actually has the exact opposite response wanted from the person shushing me. I get louder and more obnoxious. So don't do it.

When my Mom(or anyone for that matter) tells me to pull my shirt down in the back or actually physically pulls it down for me. OMGOsh. Maybe I want it that way! DOn't touch me! Let me be.

When people(Mainly my family) makes fun of me for liking the DIsney CHannel, HSM and Hannah Montana and stuff. I mean the Disney Channel has good stuff. I know teenage girls like it, but why can't I as well? Would you rather me be watching Nip/Tuck or other such trashy shows? I think not. So just love me for me!

Trying to hide onions in my food. I HATE onions and I will not eat them. SO I don't like it when people cook for me and they try and hide the onions in the food and don't tell me they are in there. I usually take one bite and know immediately that they are in there. Then I hate it when my family tells me I've eaten several things that had onions in them and I didn't know. WHy would you do that to me? THat is so rude. Other people in the family don't like certain foods and nobody hides it in their foods. What the eff?!

On the Game show, "Who wants to be a Millionaire" I think it is soo annoying when the contestants take forever to answer. Like they give their whole life story of why they are choosing the answer. Like if the question is, "What is the spanish word for Cat?" And they take forever to tell how they lived in Madrid for a year and dewormed orphan cats and that's why they knew it was Gato. We don't freakin Care! Just say Final Answer and be done with it.

The students in class that don't know when to shutup. You know who I mean if you've ever been in a college class. Those students that get on your last nerve by asking a question that is totally unrelated to the topic at hand. The student that ALWAYS has a personal story to go with the subject. Or the student who asks a detailed question that requires a detailed response 5 minutes before you are supposed to go and all hopes of getting out early are dashed. Oh so annoying.

Singing with someone who THINKS they are good at singing but they really aren't. Usually someone who knows they are bad at singing, they don't care and make the singing funny. But people who think they are good at singing, try to do all the swoops and vibrato in the singing that should best be left with Mariah Carey or Christina Aguilera.

Slippin or Trippin in public by myself when I know someone can see me. If I was with another person and we could laugh about it together, that's fine. Cuz I trip and slip all the time and with other people it's hilarious. But when I'm by myself and I trip in someones view, I hate it. I laugh out loud and try to make it seem like I know I look stupid, but it's still embarrassing.

Sitting down on the toilet and 'beginning' and looking to your left or right and seeing that there is only one square of toilet paper left.

Being told something I already know. For example when I used to dye my hair blonde(It's natural now) This stupid girl I didn't like in the first place told me, "Honey your roots are showing you need to dye it." I wanted to say, "Really? I wouldn't know. Cuz I DON"T LOOK IN THE MIRROR!"

The struggle between staying warm in bed and sleeping or getting up and emptying my super full bladder that feels as if it's about to burst.

Waking up 2 minutes before my alarm goes off. If it's like an hour before, that's great, because that's enought time to sleep, but 2 minutes? I might as well get up.

Waking up in the morning super thirsty and having cotton mouth and that yucky feeling in my mouth that tells me I need to brush my teeth.

Having an itch on my foot and I can't scratch it sufficiently without taking my shoe off.

Headbands that give me headaches because they are too tight.

Slow drivers in the left lane that won't get over no matter how close on their tail you are.

Anyways. I can't think of anymore right now. But I might add later. Because everybody has their little pet peeves.

So what does Vacation mean to you? Well to me, it means coming home and doing absolutely NOTHING. I kinda feel bad though and a tad bit guilty. I mean I still have stuff to do before I go do my student teaching in January. But it's nice to not HAVE to do anything. Doesn't mean I dont' worry about it though. and I suppose I do HAVE to clean my room. See I haven't really unpacked. lol. I put away most of my clothes, but everything else is just on the floor in my room. I'm actually supposed to be cleaning it right now. But my Mom is out running errands, so do you think I'm doing it? Nope. I'm sitting around in my pajamas. But you know the minute I hear a car door slam, I will jump up and run to my room and act like I've been there for hours, even though it doesn't show one bit of difference and my Mom will know. I have to make the effort.
It's really nice being home in Farmington. I love being able to see my family. I especially love being able to hug my Mama whenever I want.
But the downside of being home, is that my body knows I can be sick and so it takes that as a sign to let me have the flu. It's not a bad flu, just aches and stuffy nose and all that. So it's more of like a cold, but still. Plus, my Kidney Stone(who I've named, Excrucia) has still not made an appearance. It's alright, I'm not in pain. It's just weird, knowing it's still in me and I could pee it out at any time. I'm really afraid I'm going to be all alone on the toilet crying when it comes out. Ouchie.
Oh well. Oh Snap, I heard a car door slam. Gotta go!

Kidney Stones

So the past few days my stomach has really been hurting me and I didn't know what it was. Well it got really bad yesterday, so bad I was crying. I called my sister Misha and explained my symptoms, and she thought it was my apendix. So I called my hometeachers and they gave me a blessing. Then my friend Katie took me to the emergency room, cuz I was in alot of pain. They admitted me and I got an IV with morphine and everything. They drew blood to make sure I wasn't pregnant. (LOL) Then I got a CT scan. I had to hold my breath for 6 seconds 2 times and the last time I had to hold it for 30 seconds. HARD. But what I thought was funny, that after they told me to hold my breath, when you let it go, the machine said, "Breathe" it made me laugh. So I had to wait for the test to come back and the doctor came in and said I had a Kidney Stone. Also that there was a little bacteria in my Urine, so I might have a Urinary Tract Infection as well. FAIL! So they sent me home with Vicadin, and a prescription for an antibiotic and strainers for when I pass the stone. Weird.

So I went to my final this morning and that was fine. I was still in pain, but it was tolerable. Then I had to go to Deming to meet with my Clinical Faculty for my student teaching next semester. Then I had to go do a background check. All the time I started to feel worse and worse. By the time I was driving home to Silver City, I was in soo much pain. I cried the whole drive home. I had a high fever and was devoid of energy. I got back to Silver and took a super hot shower, took some Vicadin and crashed out.

Tonight my fever broke and me and My friend Katie had a girls night. We had Pizza and watched a Christmas Story. I'm still in pain and I wish this stone would just pass already. I have my last final tomorrow and I'm soo glad. But I still have to pack and do other stuff as well. Ahh Stress and Kidney stones suck!

2 more weeks

WEll the semester is coming to an end and I have sooo much to do. It's totally stressing me out. I've got papers and projects due which is normal, but I also have to do stuff because I'm doing my practice teaching next semester. There is so much to do and i don't have enough time to do it. I wish I was a super human and didn't have to sleep or eat or use the restroom. Then I would have enough time to do everything I need to do. In addition to school work, I have to pack and take stuff to my Aunts in Deming. Then I have to make sure everything is set up for next semester. Going to school at Western New Mexico University is so stressful sometimes, because they mess stuff up alot. It totally sucks. I just hope they don't spring any extra stuff on me. If I can just get my lesson plans done, I will be good and I won't have to worry so much. But after that I still have FInals to study for and papers to hand in. CRAZY! Well, I've got to get back to my homework! I think that's all I will be doing these 2 weeks!

Ok So. Here is the deal on my reaction to Twilight the movie. I was soo excited to go see it and saw it opening night. Even though I had driven home to Farmington that day and got there at 730 and went to the 955 movie. I'm crazy I know. Anyways, I went into the movie and expected it to be very much like the book. I was sadly disapointed. In my opinion it changed things and put things in the movie that weren't in the book. I was soo focused on that during the movie that I was mad and couldn't really enjoy it. I was really disapointed that the directors felt the need to add things and change things from the book. Everything moved so fast in the movie. In the book Bella takes forever to figure out that Edward is a vampire, but in the movie it's really fast.

Now the differences were similiar to the changes that Harry Potter directors made from the books, but not as bad as the directors of Eragon to the book. I went a second night to go see Twilight and told myself I wasn't going to compare the book to the movie. I wanted to watch the movie and enjoy it. And I did. The second time was much better because I just enjoyed it. Also the hotness factor of the guys was a major 10! Edward is soo amazing. Robert Pattison really IS Edward. So cute and sarcastic and caring. Great. Now looking at the movie, I can understand the changes they made. But that doesn't mean I like them. I still wish it could have been more accurately related to the book.

Houses of Silver City

So whenever I drive around Silver City, I look at the houses and think they are so beautiful. I always say I'm going to take pictures. Well I finally did. I love the architecture of these old houses. I want to live in a house similar to these someday.

I Like the Porch and the windows. Reminds me of the old days. (Like I was there. lol)
This one's kinda scrappy and old, but it has potential. Who wouldn't love to fix up this house?! I also love that it's on a hill. Most of Silver City is though. lol

Love the round architecture on this one. Great yard as well.

Round architecture again. I like the bay windows as well.

This is my favorite house by far. I love the color and the huge wrap-around porch. It's right by the school so I see it almost everyday.
Different Angle of my Favorite house. Lets you see the porch better. I see the people in this house always on the porch. Always cooking out or just sitting and enjoying the evening. That's why I want a house like this. They've actually done a lot of work on it. That rot iron fence is new and it gives the house just the right touch.

This big house is actually for Rent. How cool would it be to live here!

This house is a little bit older but still I love the porch. I also love the homemade wind chimes hanging on the porch.

I don't know what it is about this house, but I like it. I like the balcony on the second story. I also like the round front with bay windows.

Well I'm done with my dorky architecture schpeal(spell?) Now don't you want to come visit Silver City to see all these great houses? Yeah, I thought so.

Why Do I still feel Bad?!

So today I was a little bad. I woke up and felt soo not good, so i decided to take it easy today and not go to church. As I've said before I have Tonsilitis and I can't seem to kick it. I've been taking my Amoxicillin but I still feel like crap. I wanted to take today and take it easy so I can maybe get through this week like a normal healthy person. But sad to say I still don't feel any better. I ate breakfast with my roomies and spent the rest of the day taking it easy. Reading and watching TV. But now this evening I have a headache and feel all icky. What the heck? I thought Medicine was supposed to make you feel better and if you take it easy you get better. So why don't I feel any better? My head is pounding and my eyes hurt. Oh So totally lame. Stupid sickness-Just Go away already!

But in happier news I get to go home on Friday and I am OH sooo Excited! Yay for a week of family and fun in Farmington. Not to mention all the Yummy food for Thanksgiving. Plus TWlight comes out this Friday and that is an event in and of itself! I had a dream about Vampires and Werewolves. Obviously way too involved. But that's me and that's how excited I am!

Lots to do

So my weekend has been pretty busy. Yesterday was the start of our big YSA(Young Single Adult) activity for Church. Silver City is in charge so there was lots to do. I helped decorate and helped throughout the night. I wish more people had come, but alas, it's Silver City and not many people want to travel here. But El Paso showed up at 930 in a 15 Passenger van-quite exciting. After cleaning up for the night, I went home, took a shower and went to bed.
This morning I had to wake up at like 730, because I had to take my Teacher Competency Test at 8. I just got done and I think I actually did pretty well. I feel really good about it.
Unfortunately I only have a little break, because now I've got to head back over to the Stake Center for the rest of the YSA activity. But I have to leave somewhere in the middle because my Roomies 1st Home Basketball game is at 2. I made a sign and everything Gotta go support my Lady Mustangs!! I want to help everyone, but I don't want to disappoint anyone either. So hopefully all goes well.

Get down with the Sickness

So I went to the Doctor yesterday(Which was an experience in and of itself) But luckily(HA) I've been sick and I was feeling horrible yesterday when I went. Apparently I have Tonsillitis. YUCK! She told me left tonsil was super inflamed(gross, I know) She said I should have had my Tonsils out like a year ago.(News to me) But since I have no insurance, that's not gonna happen. So we'll just see how it goes. I have to take Amoxicillin I woke up this morning feeling totally yucky( good word isn't it?) I took my Amox. and Day-quil. We'll see how I feel. I still feel kinda yucky, but good enough to get through the day.

I've got homework to do(Oh Joy!) so I'm gonna work on that while I feel a little better, because who knows when my health is going to go downhill.

My Birthday!

Soo I thought to start off, I would post about my birthday. I turned 24 yesterday. Although the day wasn't that eventful, my evening was. My roomies and friends threw me a little birthday party in my dorm. I came home from class to find my room decorated with pink streamers, balloons and a Hannah Montana banner! It was awesome! Some more of my friends came over and we played games and had cupcakes. Then my roomies came out with a little cake they got for me with 24 candles on it. The flame was so high. Scariest moment of the night.

Later on We went bowling in the hallway. with Water bottles and a Nerf ball. That's how we Roll. It got pretty crazy and our RA told us to quiet down. Fun times.

I had a pretty fun night for the most part. Here are some other pics from my fun bday night!

Me and my lovely Birthday Cake

Me and My Fabulous Roomies!
