Wow. Sorry it's been so long. I'm not very good at this whole posting thing. Same with Deviant Art. Anyway...

Idk if this happens to everybody, but people piss me off. Especially more and more lately. Actually it's more like one specific person. A boy. Not just any boy, but a boy I've dated and I'm kinda back together with.

Long story short, got together, he broke the relationship off, I broke the friendship off, I re-initiated the friendship and he wanted to go back to dating. All over the course of a year.....

Anyway, he wanted to get together right before the school semester ended (horrible decision, especially since he went back home to Chicago and I'm stuck here in Ames...) and wanted to stay in communication and work through things. True to his word, we talked. This lasted about a week. We are now two weeks into summer with three months left to go.... It's not like I care if we don't talk occasionally. That's fine. It happens. But he will randomly initiate a conversation with nothing to say. I'm not going to be the one who has to constantly think of something to say. I think the big problem is that neither one of us do well when it come to face-to-comp interaction when we are used to face-to-face interaction with each other.

Rant fin.

I'm Sorry!

I'm really sorry for not updating in a while. Things here just got really chaotic what with finals, figuring out what my ex-boyfriend wants, summer courses and a whole bunch of other shit.

But here's an update:

I still don't know what my ex wants.
I just got a job as a cook at the hospital.
I'm about half-way through with my summer courses.
I'm just trying to enjoy life as it comes at me.

Now that I have some more free time, updating should be easier. Agian, I'm sorry.

Au revoir

Another Update. Yay!

Update on my life:

No more boyfriend (his decision, not mine).
Passing my classes (Hallelujah!).
Trying to hang out with my friends.

Not really a whole lot else. The break-up is very recent and I haven't felt like talking about it yet.

Sorry for not updating in a while.

Au revoir.

I'm so sorry I haven't updated in like two weeks. Lots of stuff happening. No time to myself.

First order of business, I have a kind-of-boyfriend. We met on Valentine's Day at a speed dating event (Don't judge!). We have hung out a lot and we will be going out on a second date tomorrow night. There have been some stuff that we have done that is definitely relationship material... and some stuff that is friend material. We both like each other and we definitely want to be together, but hopefully some stuff will be more clear.

Second, my apology. I have been so swamped with homework and getting to know David, my guy, that it has stopped me from posting. I'm going to get back on track with it. Again, sorry.

Au revoir.

I don't know why every year I can't wait for it, but now marks the time when I can say, "I officially hate snow." If you are not used to Iowa weather, let me paint a picture: Muddy/Rainy(Spring), Hot/Humid(Summer), Pretty(Fall/Autumn), and Icy/Snowy Hell(Winter). Occasionally, when the wind stops blowing for 5 minutes, it actually can be pretty. The frosted trees, the sparkling snow beside you. It's almost like a magical, fairy tale world. And then the wind picks up again and you slip on ice/packed snow (depends on how well the sidewalk is cleaned and what fell the night before). Baghhh...

I will admit that the scenery, when you can actually enjoy it, makes a good setting for a story. I often find myself thinking of story ideas or imagining different story segments being played out. If only the wind would go away... :'(

Writer's Block: Single pride day

Given that we're less than a week out from Valentines, how do you feel about the approaching holiday? Will you participate or abstain? If you're not in a relationship, how will you celebrate your single status?
I have mixed feelings about the holiday. It's great when you have someone to share it with, but as I have recently become single, it's going to suck. I'm going to abstain for the most part. About the only Valentines thing I plan on doing is watching the movie "Valentine's Day" and going with my friend to a speed dating event at my college.

Zombieland Review

So I'm going to try and post an update on my life, as boring or as drama-filled as it is, either daily, bi-weekly, or weekly. Feel free to yell at me if I don't.

Anyway, on to the topic of this entry. So, I'm going to admit it. I just saw Zombieland for the first time and I now know how much of a loser I am for not seeing it before-hand. It was so awesomely epic that I can't even begin to praise it. I am the one who can never, EVER predict what will happen in a movie, even if it is really obvious, but I could predict what was happening in this movie. I finally felt like a real person... Kinda. The predictability mixed with a comedic surprise really made it funny for me. Not to mention the chunk with Bill Murray was awesome.

But every good event must be balanced with a bad one. My friend and I had to walk back to our dorms as the bus either was done running for the night or we would have to wait at least 20 minutes for it. So we decided to walk, as it would take about half the time. Unfortunately, as I have cloth tennis shoes and not leather ones, my shoes/socks/feet become wet, which meant that they froze. The are clammy, cold, and hurt when I try to move them. Thank goodness for radiators... XD

Anyway, I am off to do some reading so I can write a short paper for my History class. Fun... Promise to update soon! Au revoir.

Writer's Block: Educated guess

How has your education prepared you for your current or intended career? Do you wish you had taken a different path academically? Would you consider transferring or going back to school?
I am still in college, on my way to be a High School Chemistry teacher, and some things seem to help. I'm not sure about some classes. I like the path I'm taking. I wouldn't change it for anything.

Story Ideas

So here are some story ideas. I haven't decided on whether or not I want to stick with short stories or take them all the way to novel or novella. We will see once I start writing. Anyway, here they are.

1. Princess captured by Pirate. Initially dislike on the Princess' part but turns into something more.

2. Twin Princesses at an Academy for, well, Princesses. They learn everything from Etiquette to Politics to Alchemy to "Wifely" duties. They fall in love, but scandal causes suicide for one of the twins.

3. Princess must travel among different kingdoms to help her father repay a debt to an old friend. The friend is under attack from a neighboring kingdom and Princess, while in disguise, must get all the kingdoms to join together.

That's it so far.

Team Switzerland for Twilight

I am so sick of this "Team Edward" v. "Team Jacob" shit. It's so annoying. For those idiotic behemoths who never read the books, here's a little spoiler. Edward and Bella get engaged, married and have a kid. Jacob becomes the significant other of Bella and Edward's daughter. There is no such thing as "Team Jacob". It was created when we were waiting for books 3 and 4 to come out and it disappeared after the fourth book was published. "Team Jacob" is dead and will forever remain dead. So we should all become "Team Switzerland" (for those of you who don't get the reference, it comes from the fact that during WWII, Switzerland was a neutral country).
