Small Rant List

I've got a few thing I need to rant about.

-Okay, I'm sorry if you are a mom going back to school but like 85 percent of you 40 somethings are SO ANNOYING. Seriously. I'm glad you are going back to school and making something of your life, but CALM THE EFF DOWN. If you miss something important a teacher says, don't put the e brake on the class and demand the teacher repeat it. Stop telling us all how long it's been since you've been in school, WE KNOW okay?

-I am a huge proponent of wearing PJ's as much as possible, but wearing them in public is getting old. You look like trailer trash. I will allow it if it's before 6 in the morning and you brought clothes with you to change. But staying in them until noon while you are at school looks SO TACKY. It's not that hard to throw on some jeans and a t-shirt no matter how early it is. You don't have to look amazingly poised and beautiful or anything, but especially at a school like mine (where you are getting intense career training, basically like you are working at the school) you should wear normal clothes. I don't even care if you wear track pants and a t-shirt but when your clothes are obviously made for sleeping in make you look like an idiot.

-People who don't understand that you are making a joke, especially if it's HILARIOUS and they get offended.

-Crazy students (see also moms at school). Case in point: Today I had both anatomy lecture and lab one right after the other. We covered essentially EXACTLY THE SAME THINGS in both classes like....literally the same thing. I mean our professor kept saying "This is exactly what you just learned in lecture" and there was this girl going ape crazy with her highlighters and pencils constantly changing colors and flamboyantly writing notes. She was writing and highlighting almost down to the sentence the same things she had looked at an hour before. It was extremely distracting for the rest of us trying to listen to our professor speak.

-Math teachers who write illegibly. The numbers in the equations look GREAT, and the you write a word and suddenly you look like a serial killer. If you are teaching you should have nice handwriting. No exceptions.

Thank you. End of Rant session.
Go Team!

I'm sorry

Dear Readers-
I'm sorry I've been so absent from my blog. If you look at my posting dashboard, you'll see I've tried to start about 10 blogs and each one has a line or two and then I just couldn't find the pull to finish it. Yeah, I'm lazy. I've also been dealing with some down in the dumps lately. It's about 50 percent boy related, 25 percent school anxiety, and 25 percent hormones.

Anyway, I'm once again finding myself lacking creativity for creating anything tonight. I did play my guitar for about an hour today! But when it comes to writing it comes and goes with the wind. Instead of my words I'm going to reprint a song from Brand New Eyes by Paramore. I bought it about 3 days ago and I seriously can't stop listening to the music.

I find it such a magical moment when you hear a song for the first time and it explains EXACTLY how you are feeling at that exact second. That's what happened with me an "All I Wanted". Yes this is directed at a specific boy. I might wax annoyed about him in the future. Here it be. At the bottom of the lyrics I also am putting a video with the actual song so you can get both a visual and an auditory feel for it.

Think of me when you're out, when you're out there
I'll beg you nice from my knees
When the world treats you way too fairly
It's a shame i'm a dream

All I wanted was you
All I wanted was you

I think I'll pace my apartment a few times
And fall asleep on the couch
And wake up early to black and white re-runs?
That escaped from the mouth


All I wanted was you
All I wanted was you
All I wanted was you
All I wanted was you

I could follow you to the beginning
And just relive the start
And maybe then we'll remember to slow down
To all of our favorite parts

All I wanted was you

All I wanted was you
All I wanted was you
All I wanted was you
All I wanted was you

Missing Missing

I feel like the energy spent in missing something doesn't really ever hit you until you bring it back into your life. Even if it's only for a minute, or a night. It's a painful hit into your stomach when you realize how much you missed that person place or thing.

Tonight I experienced that. It burns it's so painful to miss what I had tonight...As much as I'm loving life in Sandy, I miss my more sociable life in West Valley. I was well established in my church there with friends who were game to do anything and everything. I have no friends here in Sandy except for my roommates. I had a creative outlet there, and there isn't much time for me to have any kind of creative outlet. I work so much more than back when I lived in West Valley. I had adventures, I had a life back there.

Tonight I ventured to the Empress to go to workshop with my beloved Jesters. I was sadly disappointed because the once strong Jesters are no more. The Empress looks different (I'm actually not a huge fan of the new paint job) I guess what I'm saying that I don't like change when it's blatantly made itself known in front of me. Even driving down 3500 south made me tear up a little. I drove down that road more times than I care to count, whether it be to the Empress, to Ashley's, the mall, etc.

I'm aware that in little less than two weeks, I won't even have time to blink, much less have a social life, but I miss that facet of my life. I miss meeting people, learning their stories, and finding things I have in common with them. I miss having people.

Anyway, I'm in a grumpy sad mood and I'm listening to sad music so yeah.

Look forward to a Star Wars post coming soon!
