What am I thankful for?

What am I thankful for?

I'm thankful for having a husband that loves everything about me, that thinks like I do, that lets me blabber on about random crap, and ignores my irrationality.

I'm thankful for a family that is amazing. We are all best friends with each other and spending time with "the family" has just become my favorite thing to do.

I'm thankful for friends that love me no matter what. That I can go to for anything, that will tell me when I'm right ... and get on to me if I'm wrong.

I'm thankful for having the life that I have. I'm thankful that Aaron is able to take care of me and provide for me. I'm thankful that we never want for food or clothes or heat or air. I'm thankful that we never have to worry about where our next meal will come from, or whether or not we can afford our bills.

I'm thankful for almost being finished with school, for the opportunity to go to Sam Houston, and for the teachers that I've come into contact with that have shaped my future.

What are you thankful for??

And now for something a little Television oriented.

I read "Watch with Kristin" as much as I can so that I can get the updates on all of my favorite shows ... and today she wrote what she is thankful for and has a poll up for people to put what they are thankful for. Unfortunately, I could only pick one ... so I've decided to most what I'm thankful for here:

Things to be thankful for on Television:

1. Writers: Dear Writers, thank you so much for bringing your A game every day. Thanks for the hilarity and the tears, and I hope that you get everything that you want for Christmas this year. (Plus 4 cents)

2. Saran-Wrap Kisses: Pushing Daisies is a beautiful show! I love it so freaking much! It's so sweet, it's so enjoyable, it's so imaginative, and it's so hilarious. If you aren't watching this Pie Maker and his sweet Corpse Bride ... you should be.
Charlotte "Chuck": You can't just touch someone's life and be done with it.
Ned: Yes, I can. That's how I roll.

3. The Third Slap: "YOU JUST GOT SLAPPPPEDDD" Wow, um ... whoever writes this show is incredible. Seriously. Every episode is awesome, I love the continuity (except when dealing with Marshal and Lilly's apartment ... wtf?), and all of the inside jokes. This is the new Friends, except better ... and I hope that it lasts 10 seasons as well. I don't even care if I find out who the mother is ... keep the laughs coming.
Ted: Your not ... Moby, are you?
Not Moby: Who?
Ted: The recording artist, Moby?
Not Moby: Oh, no.
Ted: Then why when we said "Hey Moby" did you come over here?
Not Moby: Oh, I thought you said "Hey Tony"
Ted: So, your name is Tony?
Not Moby: No.

4. Claire's Blood: Oh man, I am VERY thankful for Claire's blood ... otherwise I'd have to cry my way through the rest of Heroes. This show is amazing ... there is no reason that you aren't watching it. It's action, it's awesome, and it's got a great story line. I want ALL of the powers ... oh jeez, maybe I'm being a little Sylar greedy.
Hiro: Yatta!

5. Every word of The Office: This show is freaking incredible. I love it so much ... I'm so glad that TBS put it on Tuesday nights so that I could get my Jim & Pam fix twice a week. I love that most of the actors are also writers or producers for this show ... it shows that they really love what they do.
Michael Scott: You notice that I don't have any one being Arab here. I thought that would be too explosive, uh, no pun intended. But I just thought, "Too soon" for Arabs, maybe next year, I mean ... the balls in their court.

6. "B" and "S" and XOXO: Gossip Girl is so much fun! I think that it's got just the right amount of drama. Just the right amount of awesome. And just the right amount of YES! I love the inner workings of the "cool kids". I loved the rich kids from the OC but the East Coast rich kids are even MORE scandalous!
Gossip Girl: You know you love me ... XOXO.

7. House for being so Un-House and yet so good:I 'm loving House this season ... even though those three lap-dogs aren't in it as much this season. I'm liking the new crowd ... and am VERY much hoping that 13 gets a permanent job.
Wilson: That smugness of yours is really an attractive quality
House: Thank you, it was either that or high lights .... smugness is easier to maintain.

8. Lost coming back: THANK THE LORD! I can't freaking wait until Lost comes back ... I know that it's going to be amazing ... and I've already converted my whole family into Lost-i-nites. YAY For Sawyer, YAY for Hurley ... but I don't know how I'm going to get over Charlie not being around.
Hurley: Dude, you've got some ... Artz ... on you.

9. Kristen Bell: Besides the fact that she is the voice on Gossip Girl and an awesome new chick on Heroes ... I'm loving this girl! She's so freaking cute! I hope that she'll be around televisions for a long while.

10. That TV's still worth fighting for: Heck yes it is ... life would be crazy boring with out my dear television. I don't want to have to watch stuff on the internet. I like tuning in from 7-9 every night. I can't help it!

Go to Rehab Amy ... seriously.

Okay, before I get into this ... I would like to know who in the hell this Amy Winehouse person is to begin with? Besides seeing her at some random awards show, singing in her horrible voice, her stupid Rehab song, I've never heard of this girl!

Where did she come from? Who cares about her? Why is she important to society? Oh wait ... no one cares and she's not!

But ... because I needed something to take my time away from the paper that I'm trying to write ... you know, clear the head a bit ... I thought I'd go ahead and rant about this stupid stupid stupid girl.

First off, Wow aren't you subtle? And by you ... I mean her. Your first single is a song about Rehab? Then there are reports that your concerts suck a big one because you are so freaking intoxicated that you can't even sing correctly/remember all of the words to your songs?

And then THIS appears on the web! SERIOUSLY!? Right there on stage huh? REALLY?

Re-donk-ulous. (As Marshall would say)

I'm sorry but I wish that Famous people would read this damn thing ... and realize that they are so effing retarded. Grow up!

How can you actually want to be a performer and make money when you are trashed on stage at your concerts? All that does is make people talk about you ... and NOT in the good way. Get a life Amy Winehouse ... or at least die from an overdose of booze and cocaine ... soon please ... you are ruining good music for me.

Degree plans. Or: Why do University's suck?

My University implemented this new registration thing this semester, and it effing blows.

Before, they would open up registration at like 1am in the morning so the people that REALLY cared about their schedules would just have to wait up or wake up at that time so that they could register.

This year, (the year that I seriously need every thing to be perfect) they changed it. Now, we had some kind of stupid alphabetical registration by classes. They aren't counting the classes that we are in this semester so I was still considered a Junior. THEN, I didn't get to register until 9:30 Wednesday night ... because of my last name "p".

Therefore, the Spanish class that I need to take was all filled up ... and the Teaching Literature in Secondary Schools class that I HAVE to take was all filled up.

No big deal with the Spanish because there are other classes that I can take if I have too ... but also my Spanish teacher says that he is going to try his hardest to get me into his class.

But the English class ... apparently about 15 other people ALSO need to get into the class. So he is making us email him our reasons for wanting to get in the class and he will chose today and then open the class up for the students that he chooses.

My reasons are pretty good.

I need this class so that I can take methods in the Fall and then Student teach in the Spring and graduate. If I don't have this class then it will set me back from graduating by ONE CLASS! They usually don't want you to take any other classes with your methods block because it's very hard and we also have to have 70 hours of observation at different high schools that semester. But I am going to have to take a course that that time any way because it's not offered in the Spring. Which means that if I don't get into this class then I can't graduate when I need too and then I'm fucked!

I also told him that I felt that I was qualified for the class and listed all of the classes that I have taken prior to his course. Finally I asked that he please consider me for his class so that I can continue my degree plan and become a teacher by May 2009.

I should find out some time this weekend I think ... but OMG ... I'm freaking out! Not only is this going to set ME back ... but it sets our house buying back. Our baby making back. My grandpa back another semester. EVERYTHING.

Antipathy for Forwarded Emails

I don't know about any one else ... but when the little gmail notifier thing on my task bar lights up with a new email I get crazy excited! I press the little red envelope on my tool bar and get to reading my little treasure.

But first ... I have to scroll through 18 pages of OTHER people's email addresses.
Only to get to an email that I've already gotten from some one else, or that I've seen before, or that I don't care to see at all.

Don't get the wrong idea, I still love getting emails ... but I like them to be a bit more personal. Don't just hit the forward button and press send. Send me a little note along with it ... at LEAST delete the other addresses from all of the people that it's been sent to before.

Also, the KINDS of emails. Like the chains where they are going to kill my first born child if I don't send this email to 180348103 people from my email account.

Or all the prayer/God emails. I am a religious person. I DO believe in God. I DO pray. I DO thank God for everything that he has blessed me with in my life. So, I can't stand it when I get an email saying something like "You can send jokes to all of the people in your email list but you can't send this prayer to 10 of the people that mean the most to you"

Noooo ... I COULD but I don't think that it's going to mean that I am a better closer or that I'm closer to God because of it.

If I think that it's a really good email ... then I will send it along ... but I will also delete everyone else's names from the list before me. It's just common courtesy. Common Decency even. I don't want to know your business, who emails you on a day to day basis ... I don't care! So don't subject me to it!

Also. As I've mentioned before, EFFING RESEARCH THE EMAILS THAT YOU SEND OUT. There are a lot of people in this world that apparently get their rocks off by coming up with lying emails to send to their gullible friends.

You can't fool me!

I seriously doubt that your child died from a broken off hypodermic needle that he came into contact with in a ball pit at the nearest chuck-e-cheese.

No way! I can put my pin number in BACKWARDS and it will call the police for me at any ATM? Gosh, I guess it's a good thing my pin number isn't the same four numbers in a row right?

Bill Gates has a tracker on this email and is going to send me 1024820 dollars each time that I send it out.

I guess I can go on and on and on with this ... but anyway. Just research things before you send them to me please! Or before you send them out to anyone ... other wise you look silly.

So what did we learn?

Send me an email! I love them!! Just research them first, delete the other email addresses of those that sent it to you before you sent it me, and finally ... don't feel bad if you don't "get something back" it doesn't mean that I don't love you. It doesn't mean that I'm not praying for you. It just means that I don't see how sending something electronically to some one else is really going to matter.

Movie Lovers Unite

I like the way other people do things. Which is why I'm also making a list of movies that are my favorite. (Like Hers)

And so it begins:

My Top Ten Favorite Movies of All Time

10. Saved! - 2004 - Gosh, this movie cracks me up! I think that it's a great movie that shows the hypocracy of some religious people, with out being offending towards myself.
Favorite quote: Hilary Faye: "Mary, turn away from Satan. Jesus, he loves you!"
Mary: "You don't know the first thing about love."
Hilary Faye: [Throws bible at Mary] "I am FILLED with Christ's Love! You are just jealous of my success in the Lord."
Mary: [Mary holds up the bible] "This is not a weapon, you idiot!"

9. 21 Grams - 2003 - Although this movie bounces around the entire time and you really have to pay a lot of attention. It really shows a good view on the three main characters lives, and how one incident can changes peoples lives forever.
Favorite Quote: Paul Rivers: "How many lives do we live? How many times do we die? They say we all lose 21 grams ... at the exact moment of our death. Everyone. And how much fits into 21 grams? How much is lost? When do we lose 21 grams? How much is gained? How much is gained? 21 Grams. The weight of a stack of five nickels. The weight of a hummingbird. A chocolate bar. How much does 21 grams weigh?"

8. Crash - 2004 - This is another one of those movies that bounce around ... but it's absolutely amazing. It gives a great out look on what Racism is still doing to our country. I cry every time I see it.
Favorite Quote: Anthony: "Look around you couldn't find a whiter, safer, or better lit part of the city. But this white woman sees two black guys, who look like UCLA students, strolling down the sidewalk and her reaction is blind fear. I mean, Look at us! Are we dressed like gang bangers? Do we look threatening? No. Fact, if anybody should be scared, it's us: the only two black faces surrounded by a sea of over-caffeinated white people, patrolled by the trigger happy LAPD. So, why aren't we scared?
Peter: Because we have guns?
Anthony: You could be right.

7. Mean Girls - 2004 - I can't help but love this movie. Seriously, it's freaking hilarious and a great social experiment on high schools everywhere.
Favorite Quote: [In the girls bathroom] Short Girl: "Hey, Get out of here!"
Damian: "Oh My God! Danny Devito! I love your work!!"

6. Kill Bill Vol 1 & 2 - 2003/04 - So, not only do I freaking love these movies, but I have to put these on there because Aaron and I were watching this movie when some certain words were exchanged that completely changed my history forever.
Favorite Quote: Budd: "You gotta hand it to the old girl. I never saw nobody buffalo Bill the way she buffaloed Bill. Bill used to think she was so damn smart. I tried to tell him ... "Bill, She's just smart for a blonde."

5. Moulin Rouge - 2001 - Any one that has seen this movie ... how can you not love it? It's an eye candy, beautiful, vision of Love! Aaron HATES musicals and he said that this one was really actually pretty good!
Favorite Quote: Toulouse-Lautrec: "He's got a HUGE ... Talent"

4. The Notebook - 2004 - Gosh, this movie is absolutely amazing. It's the kind of love that every one aspires to have. Something that time doesn't change ... or old age ... nothing could break that kind of love. It's amazing.
Favorite Quote: Allie: "Do you think our love can take us away together?"
Duke: "I think our love can do anything we want it to do."
Allie: "I love you."
Duke:" I love you, Allie."
Allie: "Good night."
Duke: "Good night. I'll be seeing you"

3. The Devil Wears Prada - 2006 - After my little stint working at Eileen's office, I can totally relate to this movie. Every one should watch it and then immediately feel sorry for AD ... because she lives like poor Andy every day.
Favorite Quote: Miranda: "By all means move at a glacial pace. You know how that thrills me."

2. Harry Potter (All) - 2001 - Continues - So, there is no way that I can just pick one of these movies that is my favorite. They are all great ... just like all of the books. Now if only I could get the people that actually enjoy the movies to also enjoy the books ... I think that every one in America would be reading.
Favorite Quote: (From "The Goblet of Fire) Harry: "Why do they have to travel in packs? And how are you supposed to get one on their own to ask them?"
Ron: "Blimey Harry, You've slayed dragons. If you can't get a date, who can?"
Harry: "I think I'd take the dragon now."

1. Empire Records - 1995 - If you have never seen this movie ... get out there right now and pick it up from the Busta. It's the best movie of all time, the one that I can literally watch all the way through and then immediately put it on again and watch it through. Over and Over again. HILARIOUS!
Favorite Quote: Jane: "Actually, his new album tested well among teenage males."
Lucas: "Jane, did you compare the percentage of teenage male Rex Manning fans to the incidence of homosexuality amongst teenage males?"

Favorite Lyrics: (from "Set Fire to the Third Bar") "I'm miles from where you are, I lay down on the cold ground, I, I pray that something picks me up, And sets me down in your warm arms"

What about yours?

It was fate I tell you ... Fate!

Back in February when I was in my car accident, two sets of insurance kicked in. My normal health insurance as well as my auto insurance. Well, my health insurance paid for my hospital bill, car insurance (medical) paid for the ambulance and my co-pay on the hospital bill and I figured that I was done.

Well, randomly, after everything had been payed off ... I receive another check in the mail. It's basically been sitting around because I was waiting for someone to call and tell me that they needed that check back or something to that extent.

Recently, Aaron and I were talking and I was saying that it would be freaking great to go out to California to see some friends of ours that had moved up there. He was going to take off for my Spring Break and we were going to go. However, he soon found out that he wasn't able to get off for my Spring Break because tons of people had already requested that week off for their vacation.

I got to thinking about how this would be my last Spring Break as a college Student. (I mean, technically next Spring Break I'll be student teaching ... but it'll feel like I'm really teaching ... so it's not the same) and I have NEVER done anything for my Spring Break. I've never even gone to the beach for break ... even though we have a beach like an hour from us. It's pretty pathetic ... that my entire college career I have nothing to show on the fun side of things.

So, I started talking to a friend of mine, CC, whom I've talked to online since I was 14. Way back in the day when AOL chatrooms were the greatest and the internet was taking over the world. We've kept into contact, sending cards, presents, calling each other on birthdays or in my case when people have passed away. We have a lot of the same things in common and she is a great girl! She lives in Camarillo, CA which is about 45 minutes from LA, so I asked her if I flew into LAX would she be able to pick me up and if it'd be okay for me to stay with her! Her response ABSOLUTELY!

Okay, so how am I supposed to get the money for my plane ticket? I had it all worked out ... I was going to use the money from the insurance check, but that probably wouldn't cover it all, so I'd have to also use whatever Christmas money that I got from people. I was all ready to just ask for money for Christmas (Which actually ... I still am) but anyway.

I wanted to go ahead and buy the ticket as soon as possible due to the fact that prices would be going up on air fair probably due to the higher gas prices. Well, last night, I got on and looked up the flight.
A ticket there = 99$
A ticket home = 99$
Which equaled 217.30$ after all of the taxes and security charges, etc

My insurance check? It was worth 218$$$

Fate or WHAT!?

So, I bought my ticket today ....

And you're looking at a California bound woman March 8, 2008!

Because I should be doing something else.

I'm waiting for the end.

Next week I'll be signing up for classes as a senior :) Which is all very exciting ... except a graduation in Spring 09 still seems very far off.

I keep telling myself that it's just one more semester of "classes" before I get to my methods block. But I have a feeling that that is going to be very difficult to go through as well.

What's really funny is that the Education classes that I have been taking are extremely easy. As in, I don't see how someone could get a bad grade ... so why is it so important for us to continue to take these brainless classes? I mean ... how about you give me some kind of test so that I can get out of these classes and freaking graduate sooner? That should would make my stress level go down a bit right?

But I guess that there is no use thinking about all of the things that I could do to get me out of all of these classes. Actually, I should probably just get back to work on my paper ... yeah ... I'll do that.

Married and living apart ...

Because I have a really long drive to school and back, I am basically in L<3ve with 104.1 KRBE. Every morning that have some kind of interesting topic that always keeps me amused. This morning, unfortunately when the radio started going out, they began talking about people that are married and yet live in separate houses.

According to the 2006 United States Census, 3.2 MILLION people are married and yet live in separate houses. That is a LOT of people! So, Ryan ... who seems to have the same views as I do about a lot of things, started saying how he just couldn't imagine not living in the same house with his wife and his daughter. That the though of something like that makes it hard for him to breathe. While Roula and Producer Eric were more interested in Why this was going on as opposed to "Why would you NOT live together."

They had a few people call in, but I was only able to listen to three of them.

Caller 1: Lives in Houston with her children, while her husband lives in San Antonio. They originally lived in Dallas when they first got married (and they've been married for only three years), but when he got his new job, she didn't want to move to San Antonio with him ... she wanted to move back home to Houston. He comes home maybe every other weekend ... and she says that he when he does come home it's usually pretty nice. She says that it keeps the spark in their marriage. Ryan immediately jumps all over it asking why she didn't want to move with him or why didn't they talk about it more and have him not take that job. She was like "Well, who am I to say what job he can take or not ... or who is he to tell me where I should move." Ryan mentioned the fact that "they are in a marriage and that involves compromise, that's 'who you are, his wife'."

He then took off the stipulations of not being able to live together for a job.Like if he had to provide for his family and he HAD to move all over the place and he wanted his family to continue to have a steady home life and not have his kids move around a lot then he would do the same. However, I personally think that those people were just being selfish. He was right in the first place ... a marriage is a compromise. If Aaron were to get a job somewhere else ... even if I had a job here ... I would move with him and I know that he would do the same for me. I couldn't live with out having him come home to me every night. Even if I did get to see him every other weekend. We mine as well just be dating!

Caller 2: She lives in the Woodlands and her husband lives in Washington D.C. He IS in the military and that is why he is over there ... how ever she does not want to move out there. I didn't catch how long they had been married but I don't think that it was very long. He comes home when he can ... and he will definitely be home for Thanksgiving and Christmas. She also said that this was really good for their relationship, and that it keeps the spark in their marriage. However, why get married to the guy if you don't want to move up there and be with him. I mean ... if I were marrying someone in the military I would want to be with them as much as possible, especially if there was a possibility that he were to be going off to war. I guess that maybe she is trying to distance herself from him in case something like that happens ... but once again ... this just does not feel like a marriage!

Ryan again decided that he "supposed" people that were in military relationships didn't have to live with each other either ... but he still couldn't understand the novelty of being married and not living with each other.

Caller 3: A girl called in whose mother and step father live in separate houses, but in the same sub-division! When asked why they did that ... she said that they just fought all of the time and that they couldn't stand being together. But now, they have little dinner dates on the weekend and it just seems to be so much better for their relationship. Meanwhile, the wife is cleaning two houses, paying all of the bills, washing all of the clothes, etc. So it seems to ME that the guy has a cleaning lady that he gets to bang on the weekends whenever he wants too. THIS IS NOT A MARRIAGE! The woman has already been divorced once ... I wonder what her reasons were for not doing it again? I wonder why she got divorced with her first husband ... and what makes this guy that much better that they'll pay two mortgages??

So, what are your views on the issue? Would you ever live in separate houses from your husband? Do you even consider this a marriage? Do you think that this is possibly the cure for the rising divorce rate??

Why "Oldies" should get their license taken away.

What!? Rachel actually has a post worth mentioning? Wow!

So, the other day ... I was trying to park my vehicle at Sam Houston. Unfortunately, the parking at Sam is horrendous. Seriously ... I live 47 miles away from the school ... but I have to leave my house an hour and a half before my class just to insure my ability to find a decent parking spot.

So, I was driving around the parking lot for a spot and there was this old dinosaur lady in a huge boat of a vehicle that was trying to park as well. Except that she wouldn't turn onto a turn unless no one else was on that strip ... and she was in the middle of the lane so no one was able to turn down the street that she was on. But instead of trying to move over a little bit ... she was just trying to wave people by. HELLO WOMAN ... NO ONE CAN GET BY BECAUSE OF YOUR STUPID BOAT OF A VEHICLE.

Whatever, I moved down to the next lane and went down that and ended up finding a good spot.

But the plot thickens.

Last week, while I was leaving school to go back home ... I went to pull out of the parking lot and low and behold who is trying to pull INTO the parking lot? THE DINOSAUR! I was on respected side of the road, with plenty of room for someone to pull into the parking lot ... however, she refused to move and continued trying to wave me by here. HELLO!!! THERE ARE CARS COMING ... I CAN'T JUST MOVE MY CAR INTO ONCOMING TRAFFIC!!!!

So, she refuses to go ... I can't go ... then a line of cars starts piling up behind her ... and I can't see who is coming in the other line towards me ... I pull out slightly after I realize that she's not moving ... and the cars on the other side of the street had a light. But a woman in a van almost hit me ... I couldn't see her as I was pulling out because of the Dinosaur's big boat of a vehicle.

AND WHAT HAPPPENS?!??! The lady in the van gives me this huge "stupid college kids can't drive" look ... and I seriously wanted to put my car in park and get out and slam my hand down on the stupid dinosaurs car.

Next time I see her, I'm getting her license plate and calling the police. If she can't drive correctly ... she shouldn't be on the road. That could have very well caused me to get into a bad wreck ...
