Well, it’s almost July. Soon, school will start again and maybe I’ll actually get out of the house more. I’ll pretty much have to once the next semester starts again since I’ll be doing my Practicum. My main goal is to pass my Praxis exams at the end of July. I have 18 days until my first one and that will be here soon. I am making study cards, so hopefully that will help with memory retention. I just need to not freak out on the day of the exam and blank out on everything.

The weather hasn’t been too bad so far. Last week was hotter than normal, but compared to Florida, it was bearable at least.

I’m surprised I haven’t gone blind yet since I had to fill out online paperwork for my Student Loan for next semester. You have to fill out and sign a bunch of stuff every semester you need a loan and they have you read it a 100 times before moving on to the next phase. Basically, I’ll be signing my life away for the next several decades, or however long it takes to repay the loan. Hopefully I can earn a kind of income where I can live comfortably and not have to slowly sell off my possessions one by one in order to survive. I don’t have nearly as many DVD’s as I once had because I had to sell a bunch in order to get money. I know the end result will be worth it (earning my degree and having a career that I actually enjoy), but it’s hard to think of that when signing my life away.

I’m trying to be at least a little productive. I haven’t read as much as I would like to nor knitted much more than a few rows here and there. Due to money issues, we haven’t traveled around much to explore like I would like to. Much like last summer. I hope every summer won’t be like this. I don’t know what people in the education field do over the summer, so I don’t really know…

I have been listening to a lot of podcasts though. Mostly one called ‘Now Playing’ which is a movie review podcast that I’ve enjoyed for a few years now. I used to listen to ‘Made of Fail’ which [personal profile] cleolinda is on as a regular now, but I haven’t as much lately. I need to return to it. I think with the shuffling of co-hosts, I lost a bit of interest. I just subscribed to a new one called ‘Out on the Lanai’ which is about the Golden Girls TV Show. The one I’ve been listening to the most, however, is ‘The Last Podcast on the Left’ which is a comedy/horror one about true crime and supernatural phenomena. I’m kind of a sucker for true crime. Anyone looking at my browser history would think I’m plotting something…

I did go to the small comic con that was being held at the local public library and that was kind of fun. It wasn’t very large at all, but it was nice and there were a few people there in costume. If I had the money, I would’ve bought a few things, like this new comic book called ‘Blades of Hope’ by an all female creative team that’s about a group of women who are martial artists in a fantasy type setting. It looked to be pretty good. I had my picture taken with a stormtrooper too!



I seem to have lost my train of thought, so I’ll be going now. We have errands to run tomorrow and mom wants to be up at a decent time so that we can do them.

Last night was the initiation ceremony for the Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society. It was a nice little ceremony with a speaker and punch and cake. Since it’s a Greek Society that’s been around for over 100 years, there was naturally a bit of pomp to go with it. The initiates stood before the officers and listened while they recited the creed of the society and we had to repeat a few phrases. I joked to mom later that I thought they’d prick my finger to make a blood oath or something. We were called up individually to pick up our certificates and a handbook and then we had some group pictures taken. It was pretty nice.

I have a week and a half left of classes and it’s getting crunch time. I’m working on my PowerPoint presentation right now since I can do that on and off during the day. It’s not hard, it’s just time consuming to put together. Then I have to film an instructional video to later edit and post as well as type up a rationale. That’s coming later in the week. I just hope I don’t crash and burn to the point that my overall GPA suffers. I need to maintain a GPA of 3.5 in order to continue with being a member of KDP. No pressure or anything. The summer will be a nice time to relax a little before starting my final semester. I have a load of admiration for those who can work 40+ hours a week and still go to school full time. I know I could never do it.

We have bloomed fully into springtime. The trees and wildflowers are all out in force and the perennials are out as well. Mom and I took a stroll around our neighborhood yesterday and we took some pictures of some dogwood trees and the irises that bloom next to the swimming pool. Mom also has her lilacs blooming in her flowerbed and they smell marvelous! While flowers do indeed grow in Florida, we could never grow lilacs because of the weather, so it’s nice to see them!

I spoke to dad on Easter and he said he’d pay for my dues for the Honor Society Sorority that I was invited to join, so I was happy about that. He and my stepmom are planning a trip to Washington DC in October and they invited me to join them. I have two official days off in October from classes, and I hope to be able to extend it a bit longer if possible, depending on my schedule from my Practicum. October would be a good time to visit since it’s not a major tourist season and the weather should be nicer and the foliage should be changing. Its six hours away from me, so it’s a long trip in an RV. I just hope that it’s a stress free six hours.

He also expressed concern about my graduation in December and being able to take the RV down in winter. I said there’s a Comfort Inn not too far from us where they could stay if they wanted to. I need to get a new dress or skirt for the ceremony since I’d like to not wear my one dress that I’ve been wearing for the past few years now, just as a change. I also need to buy my regalia. It consists of my robe, my cap, my hood and possibly my tassel. I’d like to be able to get the stole for the Honor Society Sorority to wear as well. They have a ‘graduation packet’ of the stole, the tassel that goes around the neck, and a medallion. I also need to pay for the two Praxis Exams I need to take next semester as well…

These next two weeks are going to be busy for me. I have two final projects due, as well as a small final essay, a final exam and a report of sorts to write before the end of classes. I need to try and do as much as I can after Monday (since I’ll be busy all day getting ready for the Kappa Pi Delta thing). The week after that I have a shitload of medical stuff I need to do. I have a doctor’s appointment on the 27th, as well as getting my bloodwork done for my Remicade, which is the 29th. I also have to have my allergy shots done somewhere in there as well. Like I said, BUSY! Hopefully, I won’t stress out too much.

Hello everyone! I’m typing this from my new computer (thank God for tax returns). My old laptop up and died on me due to the motherboard croaking, which is the same thing that happened to my mom’s computer, interestingly enough.

It’s an HP, like my other one, and it’s very nice and shiny. It’ll be nice to have when I start classes again in the fall. I still don’t know what my status is for my GA. I did get straight A’s in all of my classes though, so that was nice.

I need to get an enclosure for my old hard drive so that I can access my old pictures and music files that I wasn’t able to transfer before it quit on me.

Otherwise, not much is going on, except for me trying to keep myself busy over the summer until classes begin again. I’ve mostly been doing housework and the like since we’re down to one car and I can’t really go anywhere. It sucks, but it is what it is.

Mom and I did get to do a little bit of exploring over the weekend, and it was nice. We were trying to find some waterfalls, but we didn’t find any that were accessible, and we also got a little lost and ended up in North Carolina for a bit. We did get a few nice pictures of some more mountains and some interesting land features. One of the many things to enjoy about living here is the change in seasons and the land features Tennessee has to offer. You can see some of the pictures I’ve taken so far this summer here at my Flickr album.

I noticed that there was a change in the layout of LJ. It looks nice, but the one thing I don’t like about it is that it makes it harder for you to read your filtered Flist then the old format had. Hopefully, the bugs and kinks will be worked out before too long. I haven’t been able to find a client for my new computer (named Purple Onion due to the color), and I think maybe that’s why I’ve had problems with people seeing my posts is that there were issues with the client I used. Go figure.

I have a mammogram in the morning (my first), which means that I need to get up early in order to take mom to work so that I can have the car for the day. I also have a DEXA scan next month and a colonoscopy in early July. What a fun summer so far…

Well, my laptop decided to upchuck on me today. It’s doing the same thing mom’s did which means it’s not booting up. Luckily I have my Surface (which I am currently using) and my desktop to use. However, mom was time sharing with me and now that might be a bit more difficult. Lucky me.

I’m mostly upset about not having access to some of my programs and pictures. I told myself that I was going to transfer my pictures to my external hard drive, but I never did and now I’m kicking myself for not doing it. If we can figure out what the deal is with mom’s, maybe I can figure out what is going on with mine. I at least want to be able to transfer my photos.

This weekend looks to be a busy one, but fun. There’s a thing called “Wooly Days” at one of the historical sites and there will be sheep and lambs and lots of interesting stuff going on. Also, the college campus is having a Bluegrass Concert which we also wasn’t to go to. Sounds like fun!

School is going well! My grades look to be good. I just have to finish these next few weeks and pass my finals and I’ll be good to go! I hope to be able to go to my high school reunion this summer. I have some money I got from my tax return, so I could pay for it, but I want mom to come to since I know she’d like to see people (not to my actual reunion, just to Florida with me). So, hopefully we can pull it off.

Spring is here!! I love it! All the flowers and the green trees! Here are the pictures I took of some of the flowering trees that are around. It’s a lot nicer than being in Florida (at least for me) since it’s more than simply “hot and slightly less hot”.

Signing off for now. Hopefully I can still see everyone around.
snapdragon76: *slurrrrp* (Tea!)
I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. Those of us who celebrated it, that is.

Mom and I had a good time at our friend's house. The food and the company was very good!


We were treated to the good china!

We even had individual little teapots for us to have tea with!


This one was mine. I had Earl Grey with my meal. Quite a few cups of it, actually!

After dinner, we got to play with the household pets.


Smoky. She likes to hang out under the chairs.


Ruger. A full sized black German Shepherd who thinks he's a lap dog. He's a sweetie, though.


Pixie, the newest addition. No, she's not related to Smoky, although Smoky did adopt her.

There was also Brody, a Scottish Terrier, but he was too shy for pictures.

We played some games, including Spin the Dreidel, which I won.


My winnings. :D

We also played a spirited game of Apples to Apples. I love playing that game! It's so much fun!

I'd like to play Cards Against Humanity sometime since I heard it's fun, but given the company we were with, it wouldn't have gone over well I don't think.

We went to the Bristol Motor Speedway to see the lights that are set up that people drive around and see. The majority of the pictures I took didn't turn out too well since we were in a moving car at night. They were still impressive to look at however.

When we got back, it was time to light the menorah.



When we were getting ready to leave, I panicked a bit since I couldn't find my phone. Turns out, it had fallen out of my pocket when we came back from seeing the lights and sat outside in the freezing cold for several hours. I'm lucky it wasn't ruined.

Black Friday I didn't step a toe outside due to the madness of all the shoppers. Turns out it was a good thing. Our local Walmart made the Huffington Post, and not in a good way. Two women were apparently trampled by the crowd trying to get inside. This was at 6:00 on Thursday, before Black Friday even began. They weren't permanently injured, luckily enough, but the off duty police officers who were hired to prevent such a thing almost got trampled themselves.

Instead, I decided to put up my Christmas decorations in my bedroom while watching a Harry Potter marathon on TV.


My purple fiber optic Christmas tree I 'inherited' from a former co-worker of mine.

Mom and I will probably try to drag out the larger tree for downstairs tomorrow or later this week, depending on how things are. I'd like to try to go to the movies sometime to see Catching Fire and Frozen. If I can't do both, I'd at least like to see Catching Fire.

I'd still like to try to send out Christmas letters to people if possible. I may send them out whether or not anyone responds to my address post or not, if I still have current addresses that is. Only a few people have moved since last year though.

If anyone wants my address, just let me know. I do have it on a locked post from earlier, but in case you missed it, just PM me or something. Email works too.

Signing off so that I can sit and listen to my rowdy neighbors have yet another party. Ninety percent of the time I have no issues with them, but they seem to feel the need to throw loud, drunken parties every damn weekend. Naturally they're the ones right next to my bedroom window and our walls are super thin. As much as I love our condo, that is the one thing about it that annoys me.

Tuesday I experience my first snowfall in several years. Unless you count the brief foray from last year as an aftereffect from Sandy in the higher elevations. Which I don't, really.

None of it stuck to the ground, but there were snow flurries for the majority of the day and it was pretty neat to watch actually.



I took a lot of pictures of it since I was a dork.



Mom even took a picture of some of it in my hair.



I thought it was rather neat, myself.





Let's throw in some random cat pictures for the fun of it!

I took my GRE today. I didn't really feel all that nervous about it. Actually, I'm more nervous as to what the results will mean than I was about taking the test itself. I don't know what the score expectancy is for the program I want to apply to. I guess I'll have to wait and see...

I did feel like I was entering a high security office building though. We got to the testing center and before signing in, I was given a sheet of paper that had the regulations and stuff on it. Then I had to write an entire friggin' paragraph IN CURSIVE at the bottom! I haven't written in cursive for decades, actually. It showed too. It looked like a third grader wrote it.

Then, I was given a key to a locker for me to put my stuff in since we're not allowed to bring anything except for testing center supplied scratch paper and pencils (which we HAD to return when finished). Next came the 'official' check in. I sat in front of a desk where the proctor sat, and he asked me a few questions, like verifying my address and my email address. I had my picture taken to make sure it matched against the ID picture (which, coincidentally, I wore the same shirt). And then I had to stand up and be 'wanded'.

Yes, I had a metal detector run over me to make sure I wasn't smuggling in anything. I had to check my pockets and under my pants legs and up my sleeves. I'm surprised I wasn't full on frisked while they were at it.

They did this when we got finished with our breaks as well.

The testing room is set up like a cubicle farm. There were about three per side for a total of six. Not all of them were full. I sat on the farthest end away from the door. The proctor sat behind a large window watching us and the computer monitor where we were being recorded.

There were these large earmuffs like the kind you wear at a shooting range. I think I was the only one who wore them since there was a loud-ish thrumming sound in the room, probably from an air conditioner of some sort.

It didn't take me the full three hours to take the test. The Quantitative part I basically guessed at and got a 135 on. You get 130 points for just showing up. Yeah... But I knew I was gonna fail that part, and I told them so at the Graduate Office a week ago.

The Verbal wasn't too bad, except for the two essays I had to write. Essays are not my strong point, especially on subjects I have no real interest in. I got 152 on that (not counting the essay scores, which get added up later). So all total I got a 287, again not counting the essay. Utter failure is 260, so I barely passed. I just hope it's enough to get me accepted into the program. I'd rather not have to take it all over again.

Mom has a job interview on Monday with the large medical corporation that's here locally. We both hope it leads to something since we're tired of being broke all the time. I'm holding out for a little while until I find out what happens with school. I'd like to be able to see the movies that are coming out for the holidays, like Thor The Dark World, The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug, Catching Fire, the new Disney film Frozen. And I'd like to get some of the DVD's I've been wanting, like Iron Man 3, Monsters University and Man of Steel.

Here's hoping!

Again, sorry for the lack in updates. I keep telling myself I'm going to do it, but other things happen and it doesn't get done.

Some things are still the same in many ways. Work is still pretty much in transition for the time being. Since the people from HealthFirst haven't permanently settled in to our building yet, things are somewhat relaxed in atmosphere. Our supervisor isn't one who is super strict about a lot of things. I don't know how that will change when they do move in. Hell, I may be gone by then. I've got almost a month to go yet.

I did make friends with the new lady in our room. Her name is Lisa (Lisa no. 2 as a matter of fact since we have an established Lisa in there) and she's very nice. She's been in Florida since August and has been working for MIMA/HealthFirst Medical Group for six months. She was originally in registration, but she wanted something different so she moved into our department. It seems like a good fit for her. She learns fast and has been helping with keeping everything caught up.

Her and her husband moved from North Carolina, not far from where we'll be moving to in Tennessee. She has a daughter that still lives in that area who just recently got married. I'm glad I got to make friends with her.

Our moving plans are still going forward. I think once I quit my job, I'll be more motivated to pack things away since I'll have more time during the day and I tend to work better when I'm under a time crunch. I don't know why that is, but I was like that in school as well. My mom told my one aunt who lives here and she just said that 'people need to do what they feel they need to do.' It's a pretty non-committal response if you ask me, but that the way she is. Mom is going to call my other aunt ostensibly tonight and tell her.

Yesterday, mom and I went to the Warbird Airshow that is held every year nearby and met up with [profile] cosmic_reverie while there. We went on a Huey helicopter ride which was totally awesome! Mom and I volunteered to be in the gunner's seats which faced sideways out the door. We were securely strapped in, so there was no risk of us falling out or anything. I was able to take some video while onboard:



We watched the air show afterward and it was quite the spectacle. I took a ton of pictures.






I did manage to get a partial sunburn on my legs since I missed a few spots with the sunscreen. So now I have patchy red spots on my knees and upper legs. At least I wear long pants to work.

I did a strand test for my henna and it turned out really well, so I have high hopes for the rest of my hair come Saturday. I'll post pictures once complete.

As to the title of the entry, Laura asked me what my call sign would be. I thought for a minute and said it'd probably be Dragon Lady since I like dragons and was born in the Year of the Dragon. I kinda like it!

Dragon Lady signing off.

I hope everyone had a pleasant Thanksgiving (those of you who celebrate with the rest of America. You Canadians had yours already).

I did. It was smaller than usual since a few family members were missing. One due to having to work and others due to illness. I think Christmas will have most of everyone back.

We went to my aunt's like we usually do and the food was good as always. Whenever we move to Tennessee (which, like I mentioned before, I hope to be next year at the least), I shall definitely miss the food and company, but maybe we can have our own traditions.

I was planning on putting up my small purple fiber optic tree in my bedroom this weekend, but I never got around to it. Mostly I was distracted by our new kitty! She's mostly for mom since our established cat, Moon, is glued to me most of the time. She said she wanted an older cat (not a kitten), female and that would get along well with other cats.

She called a lady who does cat rescues and fostering and she had the perfect cat! She's a three year old tortie and she's very quiet and gentle. She does have her front claws and so we have to make sure she uses her scratching post and not the couch. But she's spayed and had all of her shots and flea treatments.

Her name was originally Angel, but mom didn't like that name so she's renamed her Tor-T. My mom has a thing for unusual names. I myself was leaning more toward Tortle, but it is what it is.



So far, her and Moon have been guarded toward each other, but Tor-T seems to be making herself at home, so that's good. I told Moon that she can't keep hiding out in my room, so when we leave for work tomorrow, mom and I are cutting off all hiding places so that they'll be pretty much forced to be in the same room together. It may take time, but I think eventually they'll mellow toward each other.

Yesterday, mom and I went to the beach to take some pictures since the waves were numerous over the weekend. We got a couple of good shots of the waves rolling in, as well as a few of some surfers taking advantage of the opportunity.



I will say, that when we do move away from here, I will probably miss a few things about Florida, like the sound of the ocean and walking along the shore, but I think the mountains of Tennessee would more than make up for it!

In fandom related news, we went to the bookstore yesterday, and naturally I had to buy stuff. I bought the December issue of Vogue since it had an interview with Anne Hathaway and some pictures from Les Miz that I wanted. I also got a collectors issue of Star Wars Insider as well as a film magazine about The Hobbit. I got two volumes of manga Sailor Moon Volume 8 and Bakuman. Volume 16. I was also able to find the first two volumes of the color version of Scott Pilgrim, so that was a nice find to say the least. Thank God for Membership cards!

I saw Rise of the Guardians earlier today and I must say, it was well worth the hype. I have a feeling it's going on my 'Must Have' DVD list. And I will say I think Jack Frost is a cutie, but even though Chris Pine is pretty awesome, he doesn't sound like an 18 year old...

I've been rereading the High School Debut series and I almost forgot what a cute series it is. I think, even though I just finished rereading it, I may read it again I love it that much. I might read a few other things in between, like the stuff I just bought as well as another series I've been wanting to reread called Beauty Is The Beast.

And another reminder that I need your address for Christmas Cards. I'll be ordering them soon, so I want to get a count of how many I'll need, so be sure to reply to this post so that I can have your info. Even if you don't plan on sending out any cards yourself this year, I'd still like to send you one so I'd like your addresses. :D

Now, I realize I haven't posted a honest to God entry in quite some time. Some of it has to do with laziness, and some has to do with there not really being anything interesting happening really.

Today, however, was not one of those days.

Mom and I were in the Wal-Mart SuperCenter to do what most people do there. Shop. We had checked out and were getting hungry, so we decided to pop into the onsite McDonald's while we were there.

Mom's knee had started to bother her, so I went to the counter to order and she decided to have a seat in the dining area.

While I was placing my order, an older lady (about middle aged or so) came up in a rush and pounded on the counter, demanding an iced tea. The girl behind the counter who was still in the middle of taking my order, politely told her that she'd have to wait until she finished with me before she could take her order. The lady seemed upset about this, but she waited (what else was she going to do).

So the girl behind the counter finished with me and I slid aside for the next person, who happened to be the rude lady wanting the iced tea. Now, while she was waiting, she was ranting and raving to the people next to her (who she did not even know) about taking a gun from the closet and shooting 'him'. Also, she seemed to be stomping her feet and punching the counter several times. I slid a little further away down the counter.

Now, I didn't know who the 'him' was that she was referring to, but I assumed it was the man she was with earlier in the check out line next to us while we were checking out at the store. I don't know if he was her husband or not.

She placed her order at the counter, once again for iced tea. The girl took the order and told her the price. The lady had a handful of change which she slammed down into the girl's hand. The girl deposited the money into the register and gave the lady her receipt, and asked the girl next to her to make an iced tea. She did, however, mutter under her breath (but I could still hear her and I assume others did too) that people seemed to be too impatient to wait. I had to make sure I didn't laugh too loud.

So crazy lady takes her tea and storms off. I think this is the end of it, but when I went to sit down in the dining area, mom told me a little bit more. Since she was sitting next to the window, she could see what the lady did next.

It was obvious she was waiting for someone, because she stepped out in the entrance way and seemed to be muttering and gesturing to... herself. Obviously she was still upset about something.

Then, the strange thing was, later I found out from one of the people who witness this whole meltdown that crazy lady had gone back to her husband (or whoever he was) and gave him a kiss.

I personally think it was a kiss of death, because the way this lady was carrying on, it seemed homicide or grievous bodily injury was on her mind.

I may keep my eye on the papers to see if there was a shooting lately...

Now, I would've had said something to her for being rude, but the way she was going on about a gun, I wasn't going to take my chances.

In other news, I received Chiseri in the mail [livejournal.com profile] secondlina! Much thanks to you and especially [livejournal.com profile] ichiban_victory for the work she put into crafting him. He's adorable and I luff him!

Yes, I've been photo editing again. I like how this turned out. My eyes look red though for some reason.

Good news! My mom's car started! I guess the steering column really WAS frozen... Weird.

Well, this week is going to be interesting at work, to say the least. It seems I have to hand post a rather large check that wasn't posted for some reason last week. It's been labeled as "priority" so that means that's is what I'll mostly be doing this week. It's the largest sized check I've had to hand post before. I think I'm in for quite a ride, guys!

Friday was the nighttime shuttle launch and mom and I went to the beach to try to get pics. They didn't turn out so well. The shots of the moon I got were good, though. The first ones are ones I took a few days prior and the reddish hued ones were ones I took on Friday night. We had planned to eat later on at Friendly's (mmmmm, Orange Sherbet), but it was hella crowded so we decided not to. Someday, though!!

Saturday we both got our hairs cut, because they were getting unruly. Not RPatz unruly, but pretty close, I must say. I didn't do much of anything due to a nasty migraine I had. Urgh.

I was able to scan some images I wanted. MST 20th Anniversary inserts! I mostly scanned them so I could make icons from them eventually, but I thought I'd post them for my MSTis friends to enjoy.

Speaking of which, my icon-fu was active last night. Some album art I wanted to iconize. They're pretty basic looking because my CD reader failed on me and I couldn't access my brushes. I think there's an issue with my CD-ROM drive... *sigh*

Eventually I'll post them on my graphics journal, but I need to set my table up again. All that stuff was on my old computer and I don't know if I saved them or not...

Tens of thousands of people marched through Prague demanding an end to communist rule in Czechoslovakia, but riot police and army paratroopers moved in to crush the biggest challenge to the hard-line communist leadership in 20 years.

I just realized I don't remember if I posted my pictures of my trip to St. Augustine and the Michael Bublé concert or not, so I uploaded them onto Facebook and shell be sharing the link.

Michael Bublé

St. Augustine

And people are making such a big deal about the "pig and lipstick" comment Obama made. What is the big damn deal? People are saying it was directed at Palin due to the word lipstick and that he's sexist and shit. Gimme a break. It's a phrase I've heard a dozen times and it's not sexist at all. It just refers to taking something somewhat unpleasant, revising it just slightly to make it seem more pleasant, but it's still the same unpleasant thing.

This is one of the reasons why I hate election years! People are always saying a bunch of crap about the other and it all snowballs from there. Ugh!

Oh, [livejournal.com profile] flamika, take care since Ike is heading your way. [livejournal.com profile] toriru4ever, same thing!

[livejournal.com profile] kawaiiayu, don't forget to post your house pictures!!

I'm going through a lot of personal crap right now. I debated on whether or not to post it, but I decided against it because I didn't want to seem like an attention whore. So I'll just write it down in my paper journal.

Ringo Starr joined John, Paul and George for his first recording session as a Beatle, replacing bounced drummer Pete Best. "Love Me Do" was the result and it took 17 takes to complete.
