Fast Cars and Freedom

So, lately I haven't been the perfect friend. I some times feel sorry for myself, cry when I can't find something I need, and tend to be too wrapped up in the "poor me" stage to worry about other friends.

Well, tonight that changes. I've decided that my life can't be spent doing the "poor me" thing. Yes, I am allowed to have bad days and days that I wish I didn't have to get out of bed. BUT (and this is a big but..hahah) I can not and will not allow myself to not be there for my friends when they need me.

I did some grocery shopping tonight and that made me feel better since I got some much needed things in the apartment (like milk, eggs, ice cream--you know, the basics!) Then I had a late dinner and am just winding down for the night. I've had some flu like stuff going on the past two days and am getting pretty sick of that. I can't go to internship when I'm sick since I work in a hospital so it's all a little much.

Anyway, this weekend I start my 5 week Saturday class. I can't say I'm thrilled about this but I'm hoping it goes by fast. And I can tell you now that Sunday I will be doing NOTHING to make up for having to have school on Saturday :)

Happy Thursday everyone!

Friends, Paris, London....

I bet everyone is wondering where I've been? (Just agree here!) Well, I have been busy (stop laughing!)

I had a bad week last week and had a little break down. I felt as though I shouldn't have those any more but was reminded by many people that it's okay to have days where I'm not 100% and that it's expected. Well, after a wonderful weekend I feel much better and ready to take on this week.

Friends are always a topic where you could either complain the whole time and talk about how wonderful they are. Well, I have a friend I've known since I was 5 (yes, that's 20 years now!) We shared a room in college (that didn't work so well) and then another so called "friend" took advantage of our arguing over living together and did a good job of manipulating us into thinking we hated each other. Anyway, so I lost touch with this friend. It didn't help that my ex didn't like this friend from when I was 5 either. I now know that a #1 thing is NEVER let boys tell you who your friends are. I can't believe I was that stupid, but I digress...

So I have been talking and getting together with this friend again and it's like no time ever went by. Those are the friends I love. The ones that you could not talk to for 2 years and the next conversation is as though there was no time in between. Having her back as a friend (I can't believe she forgave me) is something that I really cherish and love the time we have. She has recently moved closer to where I live (only an hour compared to 3 1/2) and I'm hoping that it continues to help our friendship.

Who is your best friend(s) and why have you stayed friends though the years?

In other news, Paris is free! I saw pictures of her walking out of the jail all smiles. Lets hope she actually realizes what an idiot she was and learns from her mistakes. Daddy has lots of money but that didn't save her...let's hope she stays out of trouble.......I, for one, won't hold my breath!

Have a great day everyone!

What's the cost?

Well, it's back to being nice (hot) out again. As much as I enjoy the summer, living on the 4th floor is hot and I hate running my air conditioning. First, then I feel like it's winter with the heat on and it gets it's expensive to run the tiny air conditioner all day just to get my apartment cool enough! So I suffer. Oh well I guess.

Other than that, there hasn't been much new. Just working and working some more. This weekend is Father's Day. I already gave my dad his present but my grandma is still in town so I am going up there this weekend to see her again. She turns 81 tomorrow! We are having a cook out on Friday at my parent's house to celebrate her birthday! :)

Have a great rest of your week.

Any big plans for the weekend?

Don't adjust your computer screens: this is me and my mom. Now, for those of you who have been reading for a while (and I thank you, you loyal readers!), you know that I have never, and I mean never posted a picture of myself.

It is not that I haven't taken pictures since I started this's that I do not like my picture taken or shown. I know this picture is tiny (there was a method there). So I don't know how long the picture will be up so enjoy it while you can. Nice to meet you all :)

So, I've been neglecting my blog and blogging friends. I have been really busy lately and have had some time away from my city so my first thought hasn't been to update my blog. However, my mother informed me today that she is sick of looking at Tom Cruise's ass and Suri and that I should update.

So here is the update. I had a great Memorial Day weekend. I went to my parents and ran a rummage sale. A friend I've had since Kindergarten came to visit me three times and it was WONDERFUL to see her.

I started back at school this week. I swear those 12 days off just flew! I have classes through the end of July and then I have internship through the middle of August. I am half way done with grad. school and I am THRILLED!

My grandma is visiting from FL and I saw her today so that was wonderful. She will be 81 on the 14th and she's just as cute as ever. She's only 4 feet 10 inches. :)

I don't know if I posted this but I am going away the weekend that would have been the wedding. I didn't want it to be a huge deal or have people asking me a million questions of if I am okay so I am going away for 5 days. I think it's the best thing for me and it gives me time in a different place to have fun there--or make my own fun, right?

Well, that's about it for me. What's new with all of you guys?
