Wow ... You are a dick!

Sunday afternoon Aaron and I went over to his "friend's" house. I was hoping that Aaron would find some nice guys to hang out with and then I'd be able to make friends with their girlfriends/wives etc.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure how good this plan is going to go since I can't STAND one of his friends.

He is the biggest asshole I think anyone could ever meet. It really sucks because he does have a lot of the same interests as Aaron and I do ... but I just can't get over how much of a dick he is.

Basically, this guy moved down here from somewhere up North with his girlfriend of six years. He moved here because of his job ... she didn't have one at first. Although, she's right to finally get a job since he apparently can't get over that issue. He has this whole "shtick" that goes something like "raise your hand if you have a job ... if you don't, then you don't get a say in the matter."

He said this quite a few times while I was there. Along with, "Man, I can't believe that you are married Aaron, that's probably the stupidest thing you could have done. Now you will NEVER have money ..." blah blah blah. Another of his favorite phrases is "Who's paycheck is completely spent?!"

So finally I called him out on it:

Me: "How is your paycheck spent already?"
Asshole: "Well, it's like this, When you have a person that lives with you but doesn't WORK then you have to pay for EVERYTHING."
Me: "Oh no, You can't use that excuse because first of all, your girlfriend DOES work, and second of all, I DON'T and Aaron has plenty of money left over at the end of the month."
Asshole: "Well I have a house payment"
Me: "Not my fault you bought a house"
Asshole: "Two car payments"
Me: "It's not my fault that you decided to buy two new cars if you don't have enough money to pay for it.
Asshole: "Credit Card bills ... THAT beautiful new television"
Me: Nope, can't use that ... we've already paid off our credit card bills and our brand new television"
Asshole: (starting to get uncomfortable) "Come on Doug .. Aaron ... back me up"
Other guys: Oh no way ... this is NOT something that I'm going to get into. You've really crossed the line dude.

Eventually, once he realized that I wasn't going to back down he finally started being nice. But I don't really think that I am going to be too excited about hanging out with him anytime soon. No freaking way!

In other news: For some reason I can't sign up for my math class ... Does SHSU hate me!?

Kill Me Now

As the semester rears its ugly head to a close, I once again wish myself a quick death. I know ... I know ... "But Rachel, you only have a little bit left!" Which is true, but it does not make things easier.

There should be a pill that I can take that will make me WANT to do the things that I need to do for school. Instead, I sit online looking at other people's blogs and checking my myspace every two minutes.

I'm on serious burn-out mode, and it just got worse. I found out that I will now have to take both summers again. Two in Summer 1 and One in Summer two (or vice versa ... depending on how I feel). I was so looking forward to being able to take that little break during Summer 2 ... go on vacation with Aaron ... spend time with family and friends ... etc. But now, I will be once again be spending every single day driving back and forth to Huntsville.

If my university was just up the road it would not be a problem! I might even be happy to go because it's not like I don't like all of the classes that I am in or am going to be taking. I think that this is why I'm glad that Methods is coming up so soon. If things go as planned (which they usually don't but I feel that I need to keep an open mind) then I will be taking my Methods in Willis which is only 20 minutes away. I will also only being going to school on Tuesdays and Thursdays again (the most ideal school schedule imaginable) which will leave me open for much needed rest and substitution. It's just getting to August 08 that is going to be the long haul.

Who knows, maybe summer school won't be so bad since I will barely have enough time to get tired of it. We can only hope ... and pray ... and possible sacrifice a virgin so that I may keep my sanity.

My favorite place on Earth

Things to do before I die:

Get Married
Go to California

I am officially able to mark off another goal of mine and I'm still sitting in a state of euphoria as I write this.

California was absolutely A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!! It was pretty much everything that I expected it to be and more.

For those that don't know ... I went out there to meet a friend of mine that I've only known online. We've talked to each other for almost 10 years now and finally were able to meet each other in person. She is incredible! We had such a fun time together, it was like getting to meet up with a best friend that you hadn't seen in a long time!

Normally, after a couple of days somewhere away from my husband I am ready to go home. Not the case when I'm soaking up the California sun. I really did not care to come back to Texas at all! I would have much rather had Aaron fly out there and we could just start a whole new life in the happiest place on Earth.

We did a lot of fun things ... we were on The Price is Right ... tune in April 2nd because we will definitely be on television. The girl two over from me and the two ladies directly behind us got picked to be on the show.

Friday we went to Cartoon Network where I took a picture with the guy that does the voice of Master Shake on ATHF and then went down to the Santa Monica Promenade.

Saturday was my last day there and went down to the Chinese Theatre to take a couple of pictures and then we went to the Harry Potter store! (Which was awesome!) Then unfortunately I had to go home.

Now, I've just gone back to the usual ... watching television all the time and doing nothing fun at all. I guess I just have to focus all of my attention on getting back to California as soon as possible.

Have any of you guys vacationed some place that you never wanted to leave? How'd you get over it?
