Day One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.
1. I’m glad you are basically a hippie now and started dieting in the first place. You’re a good influence on me.
2. You need to get out there and change your situation. Staying where you are isn’t going to bring you to where you want to be.
3. I lost respect for you. It breaks my heart that you won’t try to help yourself.
4. I really don’t like how you hardly talk to me now. You seem so distracted by your relationship that you don’t have time for me anymore.
5. Why is it that all the people you date seem to have some mental problem?
6. I still remember all the years we’ve been friends. It’s insane looking at where we are both going. I look forward to it more than anything.
7. You make me smile. You crazy dork you.
8. You have me so curious as to what you’ll be like once you mature. Will your personality do a one-eighty?
9. I miss the old days when we were always together.
10. I like you as an individual, but sometimes you make hate liking you at all.
I’m lame, I only drove for the 10th time today. I’ve had my permit since early August. I was away for three weeks and before I left my dad had surgery on his head, so he wasn’t allowed to teach me how to drive then either. I surprised my dad with how well I drove. He expected me to maybe lose a bit of the driving skills since I haven’t drove in….two months? Possibly longer? Hahaha. But I actually drove better this time than I did last time. I think my judgement of distances improved quite a bit. I think watching Aaron drive in the Fiesta could have helped with that. I’m so use to a large vehicle. When he was closer to the rear of another car or wasn’t starting to stop, when I felt he should, I would freak out a bit. I can’t see where the front of the Fiesta is while inside, but after getting out of the car and really looking at it:
compared to this:
It’s pretty different for me. lol I like the fact I get a variation of driving practice between a Grand Marquis and a Dodge Truck though. I really hate when people don’t understand trucks…whether that be pick-up trucks or anything as large as a tractor trailer… I know a bit about tractor trailers, because my dad use to drive them and has told me about them, which also has informed me how little people understand them. Just because you don’t drive them, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t know about them. Especially because tractor trailers can crush your car in half, or just crush it to be little more than a foot tall. True story, for both cases. My dad seen both. One he was the passenger in the tractor-tailer with someone who was fairly new to driving one…he ran over the front of someone’s car and didn’t even notice it…felt like a small road bump. A hell of a lot of weight is a dangerous thing. It cut off that part off the car. Luckily, the woman didn’t have a passenger. For the other case, my dad went inside shopping and parked in a parking spot farther away from the store to avoid other people hitting his car with their car doors and shopping carts. Ha. Yeah, a tractor trailer ran over his small car instead. What a twist. What have we learned today children? You can’t get away from stupid people. You should try your very best to not be one and learn to read them.
Yeah, so I’m going to start a diet kind of just to try to eat healthier and to readjust myself back to normal. [Body required me to eat more to keep warm in Seattle, because it was burning through it really quickly]
So drinking wise:
I’m going to go back to drinking green tea a lot. [I don’t put sugar in it, I personally don’t feel it needs it] I need to stop drinking so much chocolate milk…I chug that down so easily…so I’ll cut myself back to like a glass a day. Oh, and drinking a v8 or two a day at most…I chug through these too. [Things that are good can become bad when you like them too much] I also want to get some Simply Orange. It makes me smile. :D
Plain and simple: eat more veggies and fruit. I think I’ve come a long way with the fruit department.
Fruit likes: Apples, Red and Green Grapes, Naval Oranges, Tangelos, Uglis, Clementine, Bananas, watermelon, lemons, strawberries, etc… [More oranges than that I’m sure and just don’t know the name of them lol]
Before I use to eat only watermelon, apples and Bananas. So this is a decent improvement since June 2010.
Some fruits like pears I have to get use to the mushy texture…I don’t like it. lol Or kumquats, which is weird eating the skin of…
Now I really need to work on the veggies. I think my problem is I have a hard time finding dishes where I like the combination of the taste and the textures. The veggie pita my sister makes is perfect for me. Now if only I could find other dishes that I love as much as that one.
Any suggestions? Preferably dishes heavy in veggies.
INTRO TO THEATRE
I went to this class today. It actually was pretty damn fun today. We played the name game. [That game where you try to remember and say all the names of the people before you and you say your name. Then the next person tries to remember all them and yours then says their name and it continues that way as the list of names becomes longer and longer.]
Great game, I really think I know all the names of the people in the class now. There is just two people who have uncommon names that I keep saying wrong. Lol But I do know them! Just when I got to say them, I fuck it up.
Apparently I already knew the teacher from when I watched Brittany’s song performance. I don’t know if she remembered Christy and I, but whatever I know she’s nice already. :D She was actually pretty funny today.
I have my sister, Christy, and Brittany in the class. So I should stay pretty amused in the friend department. :)
I’m pretty sure I’m going to enjoy all my classes this semester. It’s nice for a change. I don’t have to be in a class (don’t think I will anyway) that is so fucking childish that it angers me.
I want to try to be do a lot more productive things this semester since I have one less class. (Though these classes might be more demanding than the classes from last semester) I think I’m going to pick up my crocheting or cross stitching or jewelry making or whatever I feel like at the time again. I’m also going to try remain pretty consistent on this… I need to see if I can commit myself to something that isn’t breathing. lol
INTRO TO THEATRE [Tuesday]
CONFLT RESOLU/FILM [Monday & Wednesday]
INTRO TO PSYCH [Monday & Wednesday]
INTRO TO ASTRONOMY [Monday & Wednesday]
So that’s what I’m taking this semester. So far I think I’m going to enjoy at least the Monday and Wednesday ones. I haven’t gone to the Intro to theater yet, so I’ll update that tomorrow.
All the teachers I met today seem pretty chilled. I think I’m going to get along nicely with the Psychology teacher. I decided to be social with her and offered my group to present ourselves first. The English teacher’s hair reminded me of Meryl from Metal Gear Solid. xD It’s cute. She’s kind of amusing. The Astronomy teacher seems like he’s just laid-back and just likes his subject. :)
I think that girl, I believe her name is Christina, if I remember correctly, who I partnered up with today in Psychology will be my new friend in that class. In the English class I have my sister and Christy, so I can be anti-social if I want to be. lol Lastly, the Astronomy class…oh my god. I have my sister, Christy, Phil, Caitlin, and her two friends. :D Though, I wish Tom was there. :[ It would of completed our English Comp I group. [Group being:Me, my sister, Christy, Phil, and Tom] I’m pleased overall. :)
The holy crap of the day:
Matt Dallas spotted Christy and I. Damn, it has been a long time since I’ve seen him. I’m glad to see him go to school now though. :)
Pretty nice day if you ask me. My classes are from 9:30AM until 3:15PM [Monday & Wednesday] However, I have to go earlier for Christy’s class. But at least the day doesn’t feel as long now. Last semester, the classes felt like they lasted all day. Too much space in between classes. lol I actually took an extra class just to fill in some of that break space last semester.
So, while I was in Seattle, Washington I had the opportunity to compare different foods and restaurants to some that I find in Florida. Please note that this is just in comparison to the particular areas I was visiting and have been living at. I can guarantee you that there will be variations for multiple reasons. (These are just places I tried in both locations; I went to more restaurants than this :P)
McDonald’s [Better in WA]
Pizza Hut [Better in FL]
Taco Bell [Same]
Panda Express [Same]
Some other places I went to only in Washington: Dick’s, Azteca, another Mexican restaurant that I don’t remember the name of, and whatever the name of that other pizza joint was.
I think overall I just like the pizza in Florida better. I think when it comes to anything that has salt on it, especially fries, I’m going to like Washington better, because they don’t seem to load on the salt as much.
Other than food, I compared the tap water. [I did my senior project on water treatment and my father works at a water treatment plant. What do you expect? :P]
For my house in FL [Note: quality of water varies in different parts of FL]:
We have an extra filter for the kitchen tap water that removes chlorine. But other than that I think the same applies for both the kitchen and bathroom water. The water seems to have less of that mineral taste, but feels heavier/has a higher hardness to it. [This would be easier if I had the water side by side lol]
The tap from the Seattle home I was staying at to me seem to have more of a mineral taste to it, but felt lighter/being softer. [Note: I’ve been living where I am in Florida for basically my whole life and may not be able to taste the minerals in the water since I’m use to them. I was only in Washington for almost 3 weeks.]
If I remember correctly, Calcium carbonate is one of the most common minerals in Florida tap water. I guess, it doesn’t have a taste? Or at least I can’t really taste it anymore. I think what I’m tasting in the Seattle tap is Fluoride. The lack of other minerals is probably why it stands out to me in the Seattle water rather than the water here.
But enough about water, back to food and such.
So I’ve come to the conclusion that Seattle is hippie heaven. [Hippie as in GO GREEN! CONSERVE ENERGY! ORGANIC FOOD YAY!]
I do love that fact though. :) But yeah, I like eating organic. It makes the hippie in me smile. [I bought a recycled toothbrush and it came in a prepaid package to send it back to be recycled again. That’s just badass as far as I’m concerned.]
I may continue this later…
For now: THE END
I’m back home in Florida again…sadly. I feel awkward waking up in my own bed again. I expect Meta, the puppy, to be snuggled up to me or at least within a close range. :’(
So the trip home…EXHAUSTING.
So the train decided to come at, oh I don’t know, around 5:13AM rather than 4:40AM. La la la, get to the airport. RUN BITCHES RUN…at least that what we had to do… Gosh, I didn’t sleep for this. ;-; ADRENALINE RUSH! FANTASTIC!
Speedy stripping of metal objects for security, then speedy dressing of my stuff… OFF TO THE GATE! …alone. Yeah, I’m sad as hell at this point.
I don’t feel as if I got to give a proper good bye to Aaron and Iris. It depresses me.
So on the plane, I cried. I’m a big pansy. I’m tired, cold, don’t feel well and miss them already. I didn’t even have to leave Seattle to have that horrible feeling.
Watched some Daily Show and Colbert Report… they made me feel a bit better. Tides= God getting in and out of his bathtub. Hygiene is very important to God, so he bathes twice a day. Yup, this is what I learned.
In San Fransisco, I entered from gate A11. Oh look, that’s where my Orlando flight is leaving too! SIT. Yay, I don’t have to go through security. Got my new upgraded ticket and on the plane I go.
So, I was stuck between two guys. Guy on my right, Lawl Mr. Right, was very nice. He put up and brought down my bags for me. When we both ordered Pringles, the lady only brought one and was confused who to give it to, so he gave them to me and just reordered. :)
So, on the plane, I attempted to sleep. I slept twice. I was so out of it. Sadly, sleeping made me feel nauseated and cramped the hell out of my neck. I drew a little bit too, but my hands were so clammy that holding a pencil was a difficult task…
I hate how dry it was in the plane. My SINUSES felt like shit. It was -76 outside of the plane. Ughhhh….
But yeah, I watched Grown Ups until I got off of the plane.
Then, I kind of was still completely out of it, just worse…
I forgot that Orlando’s airport you have to take a shuttle to get to and from the gates unlike the Seattle and San Fransisco airports.
Then there was 4 floors and multiple elevators and I didn’t know how to get to the parking area… again another building. So Sarah had to come find me.
Cry of relief. I don’t have to be responsible for myself anymore! YAY! First thing my sister said was that I smell like dog. LOL
But being in the Mercury Grand Marquis felt weird too… I got myself use to the Ford Fiesta. The Marquis is way wider inside than the Fiesta. Hell, it’s just overall more heavy duty huge. XD
So dad drove around extra long on the way home looking for some restaurant…I think he was looking for some place called Flying J? I don’t know, even when we found it, we went to Denny’s anyway. So I don’t understand what was the point of that. But yeah, CHOCOLATE MILK AND CHICKEN! MY FAVORITE! :D
I got home at like 10PM…
I got to open some Christmas gifts that my friends left here for me. :)
Thank you guys. I love the dinosaur bank Kerri! And I’m digging these fuzzy socks from Larry and Bonnie. -is wearing them right now- :) I’ll be using that bath wash from the Callahan’s to wash away my Seattle stink… though I kind of don’t want to at the same time… Am I weird? >.>
So the things I missed the most at home were…
the toilet, the washing machine and dryer. Maybe a few other little things, but definitely these things.
I HATE tall toilets… I need my feet to be flat on the ground! I’m not 5 anymore!
Oh, and your laundry machine, as we like to call it, sucks ass. Doesn’t even have a lint filter thingy ma jig… what bullshit. LOL
But yeah, for the most part I didn’t miss much in Florida…
I’m in love with Seattle now.
I made it home alright. I’ll probably post more about how the trip went later on. -is too tired to care right now-
Do not want to ride them for over 8 hours again. Someone make a damn teleport.
I should never marry a chef. I would make them either super depressed or make them want to commit suicide. I hate food as a default. Eating is a chore to me… I wish people didn’t have to eat. :|
“Human memory”? What other type of memory would I have exactly? Anyway… Hanging out with Shaun during the time before I started preschool.
Blame Aaron and Iris. Yup. Will Katie continue using tumblr once she leaves Seattle? Stay tune! :O
