Applying for fiancial aid

Pretty soon I will be applying for my financial aid for the upcoming 2010-2011 school year. I will be working toward my degree in English Education. It seems a little strange my saying I'm going to work toward my degree in English Education. I can see myself being a teacher. I just don't know if it will work. I'm going to try my best.

Another Sleepless Night

I'm having yet another sleepless night. These are getting more and more frequent and I don't know why. I don't know why I can't just lay down and go to sleep without a million different thoughts running through my head. Thoughts about what is going to happen tomorrow, what I want to happen in the future, what I'm afraid isn't going to happen in my life, and so many others that I can't even begin to name. I wish I could just lie down and be out once my head hits the pillow.

Well, I guess I'll end here and go try to sleep... again.

Until next time...

Motion City Soundtrack concert

After standing out in the cold for close to 3 hours, all I can say is, the Motion City Soundtrack concert was awesome and it was well worth the wait. Even though I complained the entire time because it was so cold. We were at the Masquerade in Atlanta, GA and we were in the section called Heaven. Everyone was jumping up and down. I literally thought the floor was gonna fall through. I liked their CDs but in concert they were just as good. If you ever get a chance, go see them. For real.

Trying to find...

Sometimes I wonder what my real talents are. I have a variety of hobbies but I'm often trying to figure out what my talents are. The truth is, I'm not that good at anything in particular. I can't sing, I can't dance, I can't draw, I can't paint. I can't do anything that special. So, where does that leave me? I can quilt, I can cross-stitch. I can do all those boring stereotyped grandma hobbies. So, is my talent being "grandma-ish?" Boy, I hope not. I guess one day I will figure it out. I just wish that day would come soon.

Jesus' favorite color

Being that I work in the retail business, I see and hear a lot of strange things. Something that happened today while I was at work sparked this story...

To make a long story short, I was at the cash register today because we were short-handed and I greeted this lady who was ready to check out and I noticed she was buying several items that were purple in color. Here is how the coversation went:

Me: You must like purple.
Purple Lady: Yes, I do. Did you know that purple was Jesus' favorite color?
Me: Hm, I didn't know that.

*Awkward silence*

Purple Lady: You do know Jesus is your saviour, right?
Me: Yeahhhhh, I do. (trying not to sound sarcastic)
Me: Thank you ma'am. Have a nice day.
Purple Lady: You too. God bless.

For those of you who might already know, I'm not the most religious person you'll ever meet. In fact, I'm far from it. However, when situations such as those come up, I try my best to be polite even if I do have to tell a little white lie.

Now here is how the conversation played out in my head...

Me: You must like purple.
Purple Lady: Yes, I do. Did you know that purple was Jesus' favorite color?
Me: What!?! How the hell does anybody know what Jesus' favorite color was?

I'm not exactly sure how the rest of the conversation would've went. Who knows. It might've ended right there had I said what I was really thinking. Now, with that story out there, it leads me to my next venture. How many of you think you know what Jesus' favorite color was? LOL. Take my poll and tell me what you think!

What do you think is Jesus' favorite color?
Jesus who? free polls

**Please note, this blog is not meant to offend anyone's religious beliefs whatsoever. However, I will not apologize for any offense taken. This blog is my personal space to do with whatever I wish and that is exactly what I do. Thank you.

My future house plans

It's 12:35am and I couldn't sleep so, I thought I'd blog about my future house plans. So far, for someone my age, I am ahead of the game. I already have a piece of land. It's small but it's mine and I don't owe anything on it. (That's the good part.) It needs some prepping before a house can be put on it. It needs to be leveled off because there's a slight slope. Water pipes need to be run. If I'm not mistaken, it has a power pole but no box. I have already picked out a few of my favorite floorplans. It's going to be a tough decision though because I like all of them. They all have my requirements... a utility room, his & hers closets, and a dishwasher. (I absolutely loathe washing dishes, lol.) Sometime soon, I want to go look at models of houses. However, I have no idea when that will be. My work schedule is all weird here lately so I don't have a whole lot of time. I will just have to make time at some point. My future goals are always changing because life is always changing but getting my own house is my #1 goal and has been for a while. I am going to start saving as much money as I can to put toward getting that land prepped for a house. It may take me a few years but if I have to do it alone, then I will. I've always been pretty independent and I will stay that way. I feel better when I do things on my own anyways. But, it sure would help if I didn't have to sometimes. LOL. That's life.

Til next time...

I have just registered for mobile blogging. Now I can blog if I see something while I'm not at home and want to share or keep up with it. Fun!

My hopes for 2010

I know this blog is kind of late. I really should've posted this about a month ago. With few exceptions, I have no idea what 2010 has in store for me. I can only hope it is something good. Here are a few things I hope will happen.

1. I hope to graduate from college with a 3.5+ GPA.
2. I hope to be able to work more towards buying my own home.
3. I hope to take as many trips as possible before 2011.
4. I hope to be able to get Cindy house trained soon.
5. And of course, I hope to lose more weight this year. (Don't we all hope for that?)

I'm sure I have lots more hopes for 2010. I just can't think of them right now. One of my goals is to keep up with this blog better than I have the past couple of years. (Don't hold your breath though.)

We shall see what happens...
