41. Success is subjective

 Pretty sure everybody wants to be successful in their lives. I do, I want to have a career while spending all the time I can with family and friends. I want to be able to support myself without needing anybody to help me. In my eyes that will make me a success, in other people's eyes success means a big house or winning a marathon.

41. Success is subjective
If anybody has ever made you feel as if what you have accomplished so far in your life means nothing then they suck. Sucky people are the kind of people who believe being in first place is the only way you can call yourself a winner or consider yourself successful. There are so many situations where for some people just finishing the race means they succeeded or just attempting something they have never done before means they won. Steps even baby steps means we are moving which is really all we can do. Success is subjective, which means it only matters what you think about the goals you have set for yourself. So no your not a loser if your not married right after you graduate college, if your 35 still trying to find a career you like, or if your 40 going back to college. Don't think you failed at life if your 24 still needing support from your parents and never think your too old to admit you need help. Don't be sucky by hating where you are because it's not where you think you should be and yes you can be a sucky person towards yourself. Put down the imaginary scale your measuring yourself against and keep it moving!

Another Sunday  has come and brought the beginning of a new week. Sadly the Colts have a bye week this week and will not be playing today which is actually good for me because I should study for my test tomorrow. Oh I should also write a paper I meant to start weeks ago :/. I hope some people out there are having a crazy funday Sunday since I can't. Next Sunday I will be somewhere tipsy in front of a television watching the Colts take on the Texans and actually win this time. I should be scared to drink since I haven't in oh going on three weeks, I will probably have one beer and be wasted. But Halloween plus an awesome Colts game will mean a good weekend next weekend so please say this week flies by.

40. Bad Hygiene will make you some smelly friends

My teacher in my first class told a very interesting story today and by interesting I mean disgusting. We were discussing in class about how important personal hygiene was on a health care level. Apparently in his family they all take showers before they go to bed because his wife has preached that dirty bodies don't belong in beds. Well his son, who is 25 years old, was home from school and some of his friends needed a place to stay while in town for a family death. His son was surprised his friends didn't shower before they went to bed which really isn't too weird I personally shower in the morning but to each their own. But one of his friends revealed in a morning conversation that showering is not a daily habit for him. Even worse he gets four days out of every pair of underwear through a system he come up with:
Day 1: He wears them normally
Day 2: He wears them backwards
Day 3: He wears them forward again but turns them inside out
Day 4: He wears them backwards again inside out
I almost puked in my mouth after he told this story

40. Bad Hygiene will make you some smelly friends
There is no reason why anybody can't shower at least once a day! Seriously people for one how uncomfortable is that dirt build up on your skin and if I can smell you I know you can smell yourself. To all those smelly people out there that I have to wait on in the pharmacy, or sit next to in class you kinda suck. If you can not have good hygiene please invest in some industrial Febreeze that you carry with you at all times.  I can only hold my breath so long, I seriously wait on people that I can smell even though I am not breathing through my nose. Sick! So I know you do not want to suck so please people shower regularly.

Fridays are pretty much my longest day of the week, I have class from 8:00 to 4:30 then I work 5 to 9. The class part usually isn't too bad especially since so far I have gotten perfect scores on all my tests. (knock on wood) But by the time I get to work where time suddenly moves as fast as a slug through sand I am probably not the nicest person. For some reason the end of the week is when people show up with the dumbest questions, I am talking about the common sense questions that they ask with a straight face. Somebody asked us if it was ok to use hydrocortisone cream when she use Neosporin the day before. For one their both over the counter and for two they are applied topically they don't leak into your bloodstream for days or anything. I mean seriously this conversation took fifteen minutes from my life that I want back.

39. If you can't dance alone you don't belong on the dancefloor

I had a hard time trying to come up with a topic today I am pretty sure as the week progresses my mind becomes slower. I have wanted to learn to play guitar for a very long time but I haven't. Before it was because I was too scared to go get lessons by myself, when walking in unknown territory having somebody to go with you makes you more comfortable. I even bought a cheap guitar off of EBAY but I lacked the discipline to teach myself.  I have to say there are a lot of things I have wanted to do but I didn't because I didn't want to go alone or I didn't want to be the organizer in some situations. I want to skydive but I haven't, I want to take dance lessons but I haven't, I want to run marathon but I haven't and I want to learn how to surf but I haven't. Nowadays my financial limitations have stopped me from doing anything but as soon as I graduate it is game on because if I really want to do something I should be willing to do it by myself or else I don't want to do it bad enough.

39. If you can't dance alone you don't belong on the dancefloor
Guess you can take this one literally and metaphorically, I think the main thing I am trying to say is be strong enough to stand alone. People whose interests and personalities vary depending on who their friends with or who their dating kind of suck. If you have an idea of who you are then you can go into situations and grow instead of becoming a whole new person with every new situation. If you know who you are then nothing would stop you from going into the middle of any dancefloor and shutting it down.

I realized today how good exercise really is, I felt amazing after I finished my six mile walk/jog. I don't know if it was the weather was amazing today or I am past the painful beginning workout stage to the getting back in shape stage. I worked out four days this week and gradually I am getting closer to being back in shape. I miss the high school days when I could do five miles a day and not take 3 hours. So my new goal is to be able to run the entire six mile trail and for the first time in a long time I really think I will complete this mission. Other then this small accomplishment my day is consisting of much needed study and homework time which I don't mind really. There are two countdowns I can start one would be to November 10th when my sister Michelle and Rosemary come to Savannah to visit!!! I am so excited for them to come hopefully the weather stays good and they have fun. My other countdown will be to the last week of December when I make my return to the Haute and also my first quarter will be done which means seven quarters left until graduation!!!  Lots to look forward too :)

38. Everyone's best friend should be SELF-CONTROL

So I am currently working on being better at a lot of things such as school, working out, finding another job, and other random areas of my life that could use improvement. For me the one thing I know I need to work on most would be controlling myself, EEK! I suck at controlling myself which is why my grades aren't as good as they could be since I consider studying to be the last thing I ever do. I choose to go out to eat instead of run, I sleep instead of get up early enough to make it to work on time, I could go on and on because I lack self-control but I am working on it. Gone are the days where I could go out every night without really any consequence, man being responsible is boring but working hard then playing hard is a lot less stressful.

38. Everyone's best friend should be SELF-CONTROL
If there is something in your life you want to accomplish, like swim the English channel or drink in every one of the fifty states, you should have an abundance of self-control. I put this little tip in the top ten things every person should be good at. Being able to know when you need to walk away or when you should prioritize like study instead of watching television will get you where you want to go. If you do not want to be a sucky person then have some self-control, your the only one who is responsible for your actions so save yourself years of therapy and legal problems by controlling yourself. If you drink a bottle of rum stop yourself from driving, if you are attracted to somebody else's significant other stop yourself from even thinking about touching them, if you have a bag of cookies in your hand stop yourself from eating the entire bag, or if own a belly shirt stop yourself from wearing it. A little self-control goes a long way, oh and Plan B is not birth control its a back up safety net so use a condom so you won't find yourself buying it every week. (Sidenote: we actually have people that literally buy Plan B every week as if that makes sense.)

I am off today and tomorrow which is good because it gives me much needed study time and plus my job seriously is more boring then going to a pen collectors convention. It's bad because I need money almost as bad as I need a drink. Gasp, I think I am going on three weeks sober it's bad I know. The last time I drank was when I got tipsy off a glass of wine with my mom, man what has my life become. Anyway I have a paper to write and lots to learn so the next two days I hope are super productive ones. My body is telling me I need to buy some decongestant asap. I also might need to take my roomie out for a drink she's a little down because she didn't get into nursing school so now she is in the oh my goodness what should I do with my life place which is always a bad place to be in. I personally believe bar therapy is the cheapest form of therapy there is, what can't be solved over a good drink and decent music.....

37. Everyone needs someone to believe in them

I think there were a few careers I had in mind when I was a kid. When I grew up I wanted to be either a veterinarian, be a rockstar, or find the cure for cancer. I probably bounced around from some other ideas but those are the ones I remember. When were kids our miniature worlds seems enormous, our parents seem to be our fearless leaders, and we attack every new experience as if it were the best thing every invented. Then we grow up to find that Santa doesn't exist, that we can't eat candy for every meal, that people do bad things for no good reason, that we can do everything right then still not get the ending we want, and nothing absolutely nothing stays the same. I think any dream you have as a kid stays with you in some sort of way, the child versions of ourselves are the same as the adult versions just with a lot less damage.

37. Everyone needs someone to believe in them
In my career as a college student I have gone from wanting to be a physical therapist to an athletic trainer to a pharmacist to an accountant to a business administration major to where I am now which is a physical therapy assisting major. With my pitiful track record I could get why people would doubt my current goal or really doubt if I will ever graduate from anything. But I am lucky to have family and friends that believe in me. Believing in somebody even when you have tons of reasons not too will be a challenge to everyone sometime in their lives. So when somebody confides in you by telling you they want to spend their lives doing something impossible like walk on water realize their looking to you for some reassurance. Don't shoot down their wild dreams as if their the dumbest thing you have ever heard, well you can do that if you want to be a sucky person. Instead I advise you bring their dreams back down to Earth with some constructive advice or if you can't do that wish them luck with a smile. You can believe and support the person without truly supporting their dreams.

Sooo it has been awhile since I posted and really I don't have a reason why. I could say I am busy studying for school which I am, I could blame it on the fact I now sneeze every five freaking seconds, I also work and am trying to force myself to run again but really 24 hours is enough time to fit lots of things in. I have learned that if it is something you really want to do you will always find time for it, twenty four years on this Earth has taught me that. I love to write, I lovee to blog, and I want to be better at both things. I am back, even though I officially never left, and I am going to the end! After this very scintillating post I only have 328 more to go! I am glad this is a marathon and not a sprint because this girl is not the speediest person but she likes to finish what she starts.  Good thing that I suck often I should have plenty of material to make it to the end. This is going to be a fun ride :)

36. Rules are made to be broken...Right?

I rarely drive the speed limit and routinely get annoyed when people in front of me delay me by driving slow. I have had one speeding ticket in my life which I was technically going 20 miles over the speed limit which is considered reckless driving but the nice officer was kind enough to put my speed lower so all I had to do was pay the fine. It was on a road out in the country where there is no reason that the limit should be 65 but that is an argument for another day.Was I mad I had to pay a fine, umm heck yeah that thing cost me at least 200 dollars. But I thought about how many times I have sped in my life and realized I should be happy one speeding ticket is all I've ever gotten.

36. Rules are made to be broken...Right?
Cheaters sometimes do prosper, it's the truth they seem to have this gift of knowing what they can away with. During our lives we will be told more often then anything what we can not do. We have rules and laws which are meant to protect us from ourselves. Without a higher authority threatening us with the possibility of life in prison we would all be running around acting a fool taking everything we want out of Target while attacking each other just because we can. We all work for companies that have strict guidelines letting you know what will get you fired. So there are rules we break and rules we follow, I speed some people do illegal drugs really it's your life and you know exactly what can happen when you get caught. When the day comes you really only have yourself to be mad at not the rule or law. Yes, other people routinely do the same thing you did and get away with it. Yes, you have you probably done whatever you did to get yourself in trouble multiple times. No, you can't be mad at your job for disciplining you or the police for arresting you. You suck a little if you think there is anyone but yourself to blame.

Sundays are quickly becoming my favorite day of the week! Well  I take that back Saturdays will forever be the love of my life. Today my mom and Bhavisha fulfilled their goal for the week which was to eat at The Lady and Sons. Sadly Paula Dean did not make an appearance but we did eat way too much food which was as far from healthy as you could get. Also today was the last day of my moms visit so I am starting my countdown to December when me and Bhavisha head back to the Midwest for a whole week! I can not wait, I am so ready to see everybody. Until then I will be super busy learning every single muscle in the body and what they do.

35. Know what your risking

 Eeek! I suck at making decisions, I go back and forth with every single possibly outcome usually until I am forced to pick something or someone else picks it for me. Then after I make a decision I will likely spend hours possibly even days trying to figure out if I made the wrong decision. In the end sometimes I make the right one and sometimes I make the wrong one but I always end up kicking myself even if I did what I thought was best to do at the time.

35. Play the game, reap the rewards, and face the losses
You know those moments of complete clarity where suddenly you understand the world and feel so at peace it's like you could be related to Ghandi? I think those are the best moments to make life changing decisions and every decision has some risks. Risks come with the little game everyone is playing called life and there is no way around them. Trust me I have tried very hard to keep all the good things while running away from the bad and for some reason I still haven't found the magic wand that can do that for me. You should only risk what you are prepared to really lose, so should you sell all your possessions and use all the money to buy lottery tickets? The answer to that question is no, unless you had the dream where Shaquille O'Neal gives you the winning numbers while wearing his outfit from Kazaam. Risks come with every choice we make, you have to give up something to maintain balance you can't win all the time. When the time comes to pay your debts pay them, don't say you won't because things didn't work out the way you wanted them too. Sucky people are the ones who place bets that they can't pay. 

I was so confused when a customer told me at work to have a good holiday weekend because I did not even know there was a holiday coming up. So I stood there for a few minutes contemplating what holiday comes after Labor day but before Halloween?........I could not come up with anything! So I asked my manager who told me that Columbus day is this weekend. Seriously Columbus day? I guess if I worked in an office or for the government I would celebrate having the day off but other then that I can not really think of a way to celebrate this one. I can't get behind a holiday that doesn't encourage drinking and/or a very large meal. I'm not ashamed to say I'm that shallow when it comes to the holidays I participate it. But to anybody who does celebrate Columbus day hope you have a good holiday weekend!

34. Don't turn little battles into wars

Scenario: Meet Bobby and Sam, they are roommates in a two bedroom one bathroom apartment. Bobby and Sam met during their college years became pretty good friends and decided to move into together since they both got jobs in the same city. First few months living together they got along pretty well, they each had a few habits that annoyed the other but nothing extreme. One day Bobby came home from work to find that the sink full of Sam's dishes that had been sitting there for over a week were still there stinking up the place. Gasp! What do you think Bobby did?
A. When Sam's got home from work they had a conversation which would probably would go something like:
"Dude, can you wash you dishes our apartment smells like butt."-Bobby
"Yeah man I got you."- Sam
"Not trying to be a dick it's just nasty Bro."- Bobby
"It's my bad son, I was just being lazy hoping my mom would come over soon but I'll do them.''-Sam

B. Bobby takes the dirty dishes and puts them in Sam's room with a nice note saying, "Wash your dishes so our apartment doesn't smell like butt!"

34. Don't turn little battles into wars
Most people have neighbors or roommates because naturally unless your Bill Gates you can't afford to live on your own private island. (But if I was Bill Gates I would definitely buy my own island which would include but is not limited too: a Rum bar,  personal chef that can make fried macaroni and cheese, a giant movie screen used for Rockband not movies, and a personal masseuse.) Interacting with other people brings about situations where your actions will cause another persons' reaction, which means think before you act!  If it is some annoying habit just tell the person it bothers you, snapping on them probably makes them want to annoy you more. Don't take something simple such as a accidental bump and make it into a screaming match in the middle of a bar. Sucky people can turn small misunderstandings into a featured court case on Judge Judy.
Be smart, recovering from battles is easy but some of those wars leave scars.

Back to the scenario, what did Bobby do? Drumroll........he did B which made Sam to empty the bagless vacuum cylinder onto Bobby's floor with a note saying, "If you knew how to vacuum maybe the apartment wouldn't smell so bad douche." So of course Bobby had to retaliate by drinking all of Sam's alcohol so Sam then ate all of Bobby's food which led to them each doing stupid things to piss off the other until it all accumulated into an nice fist fight. Instead of starting a battle Bobby started a war, if he would've went with A everything probably would've ended with a nice Bro handshake.

33. Excuses lead nowhere

I have been in college for too dang long and still have no clue what I want to do for a career. Well actually I did find something I want to do recently I just have to work out all the kinks. Anyway I really do not know what I have been doing the last five freaking years. 

33. Excuses lead nowhere
If somebody asked me why I haven't graduated college yet I could give them plenty of reasons while replaying all the different scenarios to justify why I haven't. Then they will say okay cool good luck with everything and I would continue on. Truth is it doesn't matter why, all the excuses in the world won't change the outcome of anything. In the record books they don't put side notes if half of the opposing teams players had the flu or if they lost because their coach was arrested. All that is recorded is the wins and the losses nothing in between. You will win until you lose and you will love something until you hate it, the in betweens or should have beens are nothing more then topics for future discussions that won't change anything. So stop with the lame excuses, people who sit there constantly coming up with reasons why they can't do something are sucky people. You can do anything you want you just have to actually want to do it. Decide what you want and go for it, failing beats the excuse of not trying anyday.

Today is a sad sad day, the Colts lost! Such a bad game let's hope next week goes a lot better. But tomorrow should be a good day for me I have work then I should have class. I am still working some things out with that but if everything goes right then tomorrow will be my first day of class towards my physical therapy assisting and for some odd reason I'm excited for it. Laters!

32. Secrets, Secrets are really not fun

I'm not psychic, if I was I would have won the lottery by now. So for me to know that you have secrets you have to tell me you know something. You know how people act surprised when the dirt comes out? They really need to ask themselves if they didn't subconsciously want everyone and their mom to know. If you really didn't want something to get out you would tell absolutely nobody not even you dog.

32. Secrets, Secrets are really not fun
You know what is annoying, people trying to tempt you with something they know but won't tell you. If you are going to announce that you know something good then turn around and say oh I can't tell you because it is a secret I reserve the right to give you the stank eye. For one, why did you even announce you know something if you weren't going to tell me what you know. When people announce they have secrets what they want to happen is for everyone to continually beg them to spill until they finally relent. But before they tell you the juicy bits of information they make you promise not to tell anybody else which of course works every time....Not! You want to know how "secrets" get spread? Chain of information, follow it and you can usually trace the leak right back to the source. For two, I now know to never tell you where my gold is buried because you obliviously can't keep a secret. So people who like to spread around the secrets other people trusted you with kinda suck, I say kinda because it's half the other person's fault they should have known better then to trust you.

I have learned that Savannah, GA loves fireworks. I have lived here a almost two months and there have been about six displays of fireworks. Because of Oktoberfest there were fireworks going on tonight on Riverstreet that we were going to go too but decided to rest up for tomorrow night instead. What does that mean for Saturday night? It means I'm booking a seat on the Hot Mess Express and I can't wait!

31. "Well you smell!"...See anyone can do it

 I have often wanted to punch a person in their face. Usually this urge comes over me while I'm at work and it always seems to involve an annoying person who smells like poop. I have had many urges to punch somebody but I can say I have never been in a fight. Not a physical fight, even though I have had my fist clinched in some situations. I just have never come up with anything or situation that is worth hitting somebody. If your going to fight it better be for something good not because somebody spilled a drink on you.

31. "Well you smell!"...See I can do it tooooo
 I can't stand fighting. I just do not see how punching somebody or hitting them accomplishes ANYthing. Add in the possible assault charges that you could get and any adult should be able to control themselves from doing bodily harm to another human being. Nobody looks cute behind bars not even Lindsay Lohan, serious criminal records stick harder then some STD'S. Whenever a confrontation happens it usually involves some taunting possibly some liquor maybe some bad blood and of course people with no self-control. It's not hard to taunt somebody or insult them so don't think making somebody angry enough to hit you is an accomplishment. Since reality tv has taken over our lives you should be able to get your lifetime dose of stupid fights by watching an episode of Jersey Shore or Bad Girls Club. Be the bigger person or the smarter person, just be the person who is able to just walk away from a dumb situation. If you want to suck then be the idiot trying to provoke somebody so you can get out whatever anger issues you feel that will be helped by punching somebody. If your a bully and like to taunt people then you are a sucky person that will end up in jail so I advise practicing your pose for your mugshot early Paris Hilton might be able to help you out she has the pose down. Now if some crazy comes at you then its game on!

Sooo who would've thought moving somewhere randomly while having your salary cut in half would not end up exactly as you planned in your head....obviously not me! In the latest episode of my life we can all talk about how many bad decisions can I make before I'm 25. I am pretty sure I can get a few more good ones in within a year. Since I would've never moved if I knew how much I was getting paid so some of my decisions could be put in the file of misinformed choices. But misinformed or not I am well on my way to living in a cardboard box which sucks because cardboard boxes do not look very comfy and I kinda like showering everyday. Ahhhh I really do hope that one day I can actually dig myself out of the enormous hole I've dug and be able to relax even if it is only for a little bit. Sad thing is I found a degree that I'm excited about but unless I grow a money tree looks like thats not going to work out. Back to the drawing board.....To be continued.

30. Listen, think about it then respond

I work in a world where people only hear things ten minutes after you tell them. It is so weird because sometimes it really feels as if were playing follow the leader. The leader is always far enough ahead that they are sitting there waiting for the person with their feet kicked up reading the tv guide and eating bon-bons. I exaggerated a little bit there I know nobody reads tv guide anymore, can you even still buy those? I had at least six different conversations today that involved me saying the same thing in about three different ways before the person understood and not because their dumb people but because I wasn't saying what they wanted to hear. I don't get it, do people really think asking me the same question multiple times is going to magically change the answer to what they want it too be?

30. Listen, think about it then respond
Please, please I am begging you do not reply or act unless you have heard and processed what somebody just used brain cells to tell you. If you ask somebody a question and don't get the answer you want back you should not ask the question in a different way expecting the answer to change. It will save soo much time if people listened more and acted less. More often then not people go on what they thought they heard and not what they actually heard which is pretty sucky. People who don't listen suck. I have done it many a times, I just keep moving on without really hearing what somebody is saying then later on down the road it comes back to punch me in my face. I hate getting punched in the face : (

Tomorrow is Sunday. The Colts play tomorrow. We shall see if last Sunday was a fluke where they were pretending to be a well oiled football machine or if are going to suck it up all season like they did against the Texans. Only time shall tell and time is telling me right now I need to be productive tomorrow like super duper productive. Til next time!

Time Flies when....

I am being lazy! I haven't posted in a week because I have been busy working, watching tv online, looking for a new job, and trying to do some school. But I have some news, I made a new blog!!! I know exciting stuff happens here. My new blog is Letters-Unsealed and I will be posting there everyday from now on. I will keep updating this blog too but just not as often as I have been. Thanks for reading and please continue!!!!

29. The Answer to your question is...Procrastination!

29. The Answer to your question is...Procrastination!
I really think this could be my middle name because I am pretty freaking awesome at it. I mean I'm not trying to brag or anything but I can probably beat anybody in a procrastination contest. I don't know what the events would be but I can predict that I'd be late to wherever the competition takes place and I will not be prepared for it. I just do not understand why I wait until the last minute then silently wish to myself that somehow that test scheduled for last Monday could be put off for hmmm a week or two. For some reason I think all due dates pertain to everyone else but me and i'm paying for it. I suck this semester which makes no sense because I graduate in May and all I have to do is make it two more semesters but I suck which means I will be in college for the rest of my life. So if you want to suck too just start procrastinating a little more trust me this is the quickest path to success I've tested it repeatedly.

It is no secret that I don't enjoy my job all that much. If this is news to you then I know you haven't read any of my other posts which would only be possible if you had no internet access in the last month. It's cool I understand my internet access is pretty touch and go sometimes due too us "borrowing" it from our apartments clubhouse. We all get a little behind on the times now and then, how else can you explain feathered bangs and mullets. I digress, I have many reasons for disliking my job but one of many would be listening to people repeatedly ask the same dumb questions. I honestly don't even understand why people call us, then proceed to ask questions that they already have the answers too or could find on their own if they stopped being lazy. People really think that if they somehow say it in a cute enough voice we won't get irritated. Please, I am begging you tomorrow if you go to pick up the phone to call the pharmacy with a dumb question or some ridiculous sob story or to get a phone number to some other pharmacy put the phone back down.

28. Wait I'm confused do you like them or not?

Here is a synopsis on how the circle of your people works and no I'm not talking about on a cellphone I'm talking in life. Ok so there is you and you are the center of your circle because you can't really leave yourself. The first ring is the people you love, the ring after that is made up of the people you like, then the ring after that is the people you kinda like, and the people that don't even make a ring who are floating around outer space because you just don't  like them.

28. Wait I'm confused do you like them or not?
It is quite alright to not like people and choose to avoid them at all times. It is not ok to not like somebody but every time you see them in person you run and hug them then continually tell them how cool they are. Not only is this little practice, which I like to refer to as Foe-Friendship, confusing but it is also sucky. Lets write this little rule in cement: do not smile to somebodies face then as soon as they turn their back talk about how you can't stand them. Usually people only maintain a Foe-Friend relationship if they get some kind of benefit from it such as free drinks or rides or food. If somebody only calls you when they need a ride and not when they want to do something else like hangout then they are using you. They do not like you and you giving them rides all the time will not make them like you. If you are only called on certain occasions where your presence is beneficial to them then you are not in any of their circles circles so don't keep them in yours. Stop you foe-friendships because honestly they are sucky and in the end somebody always ends up with dirt in their eye. It is not fun having dirt in your eye, it hurts like really bad so avoid it!

I am going to go out on a limb and say tonight was a good night while hoping I don't suddenly get a bomb dropped on me for calling it early. Manning bowl ended with the Indianapolis Colts walking away with a  nice victory. The Colts actually looked like the team that almost went undefeated last year and thankfully they did not look like the terrible team that played last Sunday. Also I think I have turned my roommate into a football fan! She said, "Now that I watched it I think it's kinda cool". Now this makes me happy because hopefully I won't be the girl sitting at the bar alone watching games because go ahead and say it that girl always looks a little lonely. So I am going to say this Sunday was a pretty good Sunday which I hope that means that this week will be a good week.......only time will tell Nighty Night

27. If it is really so great why are you trying to give it away?

Some people have no shame or conscious. Search the internet for tales of scams and you will get back a good amount of responses. You will hear of people who promise you the world and then steal your money before disappearing. In my life experience I have found that if it sounds too good to be true then not only is it not true but by associating with it you will walk away with less then you came with. 

27. If it is really so great why are you trying to give it away?

Anybody that can make money off of nothing more then hard work and intelligence I am impressed by you. A good business transaction is when both people on each side of the deal walk away feeling satisfied. As in any good relationship if one person is not satisfied transaction is finished then it was a failure. A good business man has repeat customers who not only use the product or service but also recommends it to friends. Now people that make money off lies and over exaggeration are not practicing good business they are stealing within the law. Scam artists piss me off and really are sucky people because all you are doing is taking advantage of others to benefit yourself. With my recent attempt of finding a new job because I got screwed by my current employer I have had a few run ins with some scams. I can't believe people actually have the nerve to put up fake jobs so that people will apply and then you can off some dumb service or online college for them to sign up for. All these commercials proclaiming "I found the way to make a ton of money and I want to tell you how to do it" or "I was poor and living on the streets now I am a multimillionaire and I want to tell you my secrets", are soo lame. If you had some secret no fail way to make money you would not going around charging people to find out what it is. If you really had some magical money plan you would keep it to yourself or tell your close friends then spend the rest of your time vacationing on your own private island. Sucky is as sucky does I guess.....(yeah I don't really know what that means but it makes sense at least it does with rum in my system!)

So I took a little trip to the liquor store the other day and made a bit of a discovery....
Thats right all you vodka drinkers can suck it! Because us rum drinkers can now join you in your love for the inexpensive flavored vodka brand Burnett's. Seriously the only flavor of vodka they don't have is mint and I am sure that one is on it's way. Anyway I am a Captain Morgan fan until the day comes I puke off of it so it pains me to say that with a recent decrease in my cash flow I have to go generic on my alcohol purchases. So I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this little bottle sitting on the shelf and I knew I had to try it. I can't say that this replaces the Captain because we all know nothing will replace the Captain but this fits my budget and helps me accomplish my the only goal I have when I drink which is to get drunk. So thank you Burnett's  from all the people who can't afford Captain Morgan we owe you big time :)

26. I can see you I'm not blind and if I was blind unfortunately I'd still see you

 Let me see how many ways can I say this. There are those people that are shall we say a bit needy. Not needy as in my car ran out of gas and is now blocking the road can I get money from you. But needy as in I need you to give me attention before I explode. I know you hear me, I need you to acknowledge you hear me then continue to repeat those two steps every two minutes.How else can it be described? Attention whore.Yep I think that sums it all up, the people that seriously need to be constantly reminded that their not invisible are the exact people you wished were invisible.

26. I can see you I'm not blind and if I was blind unfortunately I'd still see you
Could you imagine what the conversation would be if all the attention whores of the world were forced into one room. There would be no conversation because everyone in the room would be talking very loudly and nobody would be listening. A group of us went out with a girl recently that if she was talking and not enough people were listening to her she would wave her hand around yelling everyone needs to listen to the short girl until we all looked at her. Man that little short girl almost lost an arm that night. Attention is grimy if you have to demand it I think, the kind of attention you have to demand is usually negative anyway. Don't be an attention whore and chase after grimy dirty attention because then you suck. Like when two girls make out with each other on Spring Break that is for grimy attention or when guys on the beach strike a pose to flex their muscles its for grimy attention. Oh or when people are pathological liars telling stories about how they hung out with the pope that it is all for grimy attention. Or when people are in a public place having a conversation super loud trust me it is not to blend into the crowd. Lesson of the day don't be an attention whore because it is annoyingly desperate and sucky. That is all!

Tomorrow brings a day full of homework, library time, job hunting, and a forced but highly enjoyed workout. Hitting the path along the marsh tomorrow and doing the whole six miles! Ohh I am cleaning too I know you wanted to know that. I finally watched the Grey's Anatomy season finale and O-M-Goodness, I can not wait until next week when it is new again. But if they mess with Meredith and McDreamy I will get mad because it took five seasons for them to actually be happy. They are too cute together, I miss the days of watching shows with my sisters that we dvr'ed. I could go for an episode of Toddlers & Tiaras right now. Gimme the crown Witch!

25. Run out of your comfort zone

Conversation I had with a girl once:
Her: What are you doing this weekend?
Me: Nothing really, probably going to a frat party since it's homecoming. You can come if you want.
Her: I hate frat parties
Me: Have you ever been to a frat party?
Her: No, but I have heard things about them
Hmmm how can you b sure you really don't like something if you have never tried it personally. Even if your twin absolutely hated something and you guys have the exact same tastes you might still want to give it a try. You should try it because there is still the smallest possibility that you could like it even if everything you know about it says you won't.

25. Run out of your comfort zone
Monotony has to be the killer of creativity. Doing the same exact thing every single day is so boring. The thing I like to do most is anything I haven't done before. I will try anything at least once, well excluding truly exotic foods or hanging with deadly animals like snakes. Other then those things bring it on! I want to try it all skydiving, surfing, run a marathon, travel anywhere, climb mountains, or whatever else I can find I want to do it. Attempting new things are pretty much the only way to grow. Sucky people don't like to try new things and they try to talk others out of trying new things. If it ends up that you don't like whatever it is you tried then at least you can learn from the experience.

The weekend is nearing and I don't see anything exciting happening. I am tempted to do a kayaking tour but I can't really justify spending  money on it. Could join in the Thirsty Thursday festivities but thats looking a little doubtful. So I'm going to likely spend the weekend looking at my computer screen continuing my terrible attempt at school this semester. Ahh I need an assistant to do my homework because I don't want to do it. At least I am for sure off Saturday, hopefully I have Sunday off too!

24. Being a Spectator is the easy part

I love sports, football season is my favorite time of year while also giving me a good reason for some Sunday fundays. Music is another thing I am a fan of, I pretty much am obsessed with it. It brings a tear to my eye when I say I haven't been to a live concert in years. Man I freaking miss those days when we always made it to concerts every year. We drove drove to Chicago and back in one day just to see the Usher Confessions Tour. Me and my sister drove eight hours in one day just for that concert. I am fan and a spectator of a lot of things, so I choose the things I want to watch/support nobody tells me that I have to watch games or go to concerts or visit museums. (Yeah the museum thing is just an example after being trapped at the Getty Museum in L.A. for hours I have not been to another one.) It sucks that other people want to be mean and do stupid things just because they feel like it.

24. Being a Spectator is the easy part
I never really understood why people go to concerts and throw bottles at the artist performing. Or go to football games then start fights with people rooting for the opposite team. Or try to start a fight with a professional boxer or MMA fighter when you see them out somewhere. Then you have those people that feel the need to go on Youtube or Twitter to attack something. It never fails on most videos posted on Youtube there is some random person saying how much the video sucks or how the person in it is the worst singer alive or how ugly they are. If you don't like something either be constructive with your criticism  or simply say you don't like it. Do not think you have the right as a spectator to personally attack something or someone because people that do that are sucky people. Seriously nobody cares what you think and nobody needs you to post irrelevant viscous negative comments when people are just trying to express themselves. There is a reason you can pick who you follow on Twitter and luckily you can also unfollow people! So all of you people with nothing better to do but attack others for no reason you have permission to shut your mouth now. Dueces

Soo you want to know how not to spend your day off! How about literally sleeping through most of the day which is what happens when you suck at life. Yep I officially suck at life :( I got up this morning and went to the bank downtown then stopped at a few other stores then a cleaned a bit then passed out in front of my computer. I wasted the day today and accomplished nothing. Oh well on to the next one. I would like to thank Vh1 for making me want to go on the best cruise ever this year even more then I wanted to last year :( If anybody gets to go please send me all the stories of the amazing time you had because it is looking like unless I win the lottery I will not be there. Vh1 Best Cruise Ever 2011

23. Blame it on.......umm yourself?

Blame it by Jamie Foxx was my jam when it came out and I can get with what the song is saying. Alcohol easily lowers inhibitions which leads people to make bad decisions. My whole issue with people saying, "oh it is ok that I did it because I was drunk" or "I wouldn't have done that if I was sober" is that it is a cop out. Trust me I have been drunk enough to the point where I am literally comatose and I will take responsibility for all of my actions. Yep, even the dumb ones were all me. You made the choice to drink or the choice to steal something or the choice to wear jean on jean or the choice to do the cupid shuffle. You are making those choices so if they come back to smack you (*sidenote* after I finish my campaign against driving scooters on public roads I am working on getting the cupid shuffle banned) you only have yourself to blame.

23. Blame it on.......umm yourself?
Let me break this down into the important question everyone should ask themselves when they are in a bad situation: who, what, where, why and when. When did I get to this terrible place I didn't want to go, why am I in this ugly place, where can I go from here, what should I do differently to prevent myself from getting back here, and who can I blame for where I am. Drumroll on this last statement please.......YOURSELF. You can try to justify the road you traveled and why you traveled it all you want but in the end the only person in that jail cell is you buddy. I will give you a little leeway because you likely had some assistance getting to the sucky place you are at, some people are dealt unbelievably crappy cards. But I have seen people make it through the biggest obstacles I could ever imagine that were put in front of them so everybody has the opportunity to succeed the only thing is not everybody is strong enough to do it. Can you honestly say your entire life you been suppressed and not allowed to achieve anything? I'm not buying it. So don't be a sucky person that blames all the poor life choices on everything but themselves.

Day off tomorrow!!!!! Sooo happy I do not have to deal with drugged up idiots who think were trying to steal their drugs from them. I am thinking that even if I accomplish nothing tomorrow it will be considerably better then spending the day at work. I plan to clean since for the first time in three weeks Bhavisha's mattresses are actually in her bedroom. It is so weird to walk into our apartment and not see a mattress slouched on the wall next to her box spring. Now I will be forced to do some cleaning maybe workout a little possibly do an assignment or two and I absolutely have to hit the bank. Exciting day ahead of me tomorrow so I need some beauty rest. Night!

22. I forgive you but I am going to remind you of your transgression against me for the rest of your life :)

An eye for an eye right? Revenge will make you feel better. Anger is always the best emotion to make a decision or justify an answer. I am going to say no to all the above. Bitterness, anger, and rage are just ugly emotions that benefit nobody. There are things that you do and people do that are just unforgivable, things happen. Those situations suck and just breed negativity so when you lose a relationship where the person can not forgive you it is important you forgive yourself. Vice versa even if you can not forgive somebody personally you have to forgive their actions, expel them out of your life and move on. Spending years getting pissed off about the same incident repeatedly and you will find yourself in the exact same spot you started in.

22. I forgive you but I am going to remind you of your transgression  against me for the rest of your life :)
If the words I forgive you come out of your mouth you should probably mean them. I have seen people accept an apology then turn around and punish the person for what they did repeatedly. Here is a crazy suggestion if you do not really forgive somebody do not say you do. I know crazy talk. But it really seems to me life would be a lot less stressful if people were upfront about their thoughts. Add this to your life rules: forgiveness is almost never unrestricted so to be fair let the other person know you do not handing them a free pass. Say I don't fully forgive you now but I think I will someday. Simple and it lets them know that everything is not butterflies and rainbows again. If you say you forgave what they did but you are still using it as ammo when it benefits you then you did not forgive them you just pretended too. People that going around collecting ammo or keeping score just waiting for the opportunity to use against somebody are sucky people. We all make mistakes forgive us or don't forgive us but don't give a false impression of neutrality.

I pretty much love my work schedule this week. Work two days, then off a day, then work two more days, and then off for the weekend. I could get used to these hours if only the pay rate and actual job didn't make me want to punch something. And no I still have not opened a textbook. Oh well I am still in the process of writing out my life, I think the dream job will just come to me in my sleep or in some dramatic epiphany. When I know then I will know. Until then back to the day job.

21. Follow the yellow brick road but don't be mad about where you end up

There are times when I am confident enough in my abilities to be a leader so those are the times when I lead. Then there are times when I believe somebody else knows more than I do so those are the times that I follow. There are also those times when I could care less what happens so I just go along with whatever the majority decides. I am pretty laid back and try to take things as they come. I just can't stand when the people who are always the ones never to plan the vacations or pick the restaurant are the first people to announce they don't like the decision that was made.

21. Follow the yellow brick road but don't be mad about where you end up
Ok so the path that is already worn in and well traveled will always be the best way to go. It means you do not have to break out the map yourself which is always a plus. Also why would you want to drive when you could be the passenger. Personally I really could do either it just depends on my mood. Now when you follow people or ride passenger then decide not to speak up until you reach your destination then you only have yourself to blame. You suck if you are the person who gets somewhere then complains when they get there because it is not where they wanted to go. Guess what compliance is the same thing as making a decision. So next time you are in a group and get the feeling you are going the wrong way speak up. When your leader asks if anybody has any suggestions speak up. When you reach the end and you never said anything along the way shut your mouth. Saying I told you so is rude and annoying. So don't be a sucky person and place the blame on the one person who had the guts to make some decisions. Speak now or forever hold your peace does not only pertain to weddings.

Hmm the Colts game did not go exactly how I envisioned it going but there is still a whole season for them to hit their stride. What is on my agenda for the rest of the day? Well since you asked I am actually going to do some homework until something comes along to distract me. I think a trip to Tybee might happen if Bhavisha makes it out of Homesgoods anytime in the near future. I could use a walk on the beach and a boozy tdaiquiri to forget the bad football game. Happy Funday Sunday!!!Later :)

20. R-E-S-P-E-C-T

This might just be me but when a word is the main theme of a song do you find yourself singing the song while your spelling the word? Literally as I was typing the title to this post I was singing in Aretha's voice while suppressing the urge to breakout in a full Glee song and dance routine. It is a reflex, still to this day i rap "I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T do you know what that means" even though that song annoys me I can not help myself. I foresee the future national spelling bees to include the option to sing/rap a response. Actually I think that would probably help in the ratings. I can see little kids stepping up to the microphone and after the judge gives them the word they ask them to drop a beat for them. Now that would be a good show. But respecting other people is an important lesson everyone needs to learn. It's not hard, you do not have to like me but you should respect the fact that I have a right to be who I am as long as it doesn't harm anyone.

20. R-E-S-P-E-C-T
It is inevitable that you will come across people you really can't stand. There are way too many personalities in this world for every single person to like each other. It is okay to not like somebody but you should respect them. Just because a person does not have the same views as you do doesn't mean you can put them down or taunt them. I know it is hard because I have had a few instances where the people were just so rude I had to be rude back. There are those people out  there that seriously so irritating that you can't even stand being in the room with them. Leave the room if you feel yourself not being able to suppress the urge to say something unproductive. Most confrontations that I have witnessed between strangers were caused by some dumb misunderstanding that could've been prevented. Respect me and I will respect you then the world will rotate evenly. Do not be a sucky person who doesn't have respect for other people. Even the smelly guy asking you for a dollar deserves some respect.

Even though I know everyone is already aware that tomorrow at 1:00 pm the Indianapolis Colts are playing in their first regular season game I wanted to put in a little reminder. So excited to see them play and also because tomorrow can't suck even though I'm watching the game all by my lonesome. Football games make me a happy girl. Everyone better have a good funday sunday I know I will.

19. The Grass Could be Greener....or it Could be Covered in Dog Poop

Expressions or sayings can really sum up everything into one sentence.  They are really good are delivering a message that goes straight to the  point without getting confusing. A good quote can  make sense of  the biggest, ugliest, daunting mess. Twitter is so addicting because not only are you hearing directly from a person but they are forced to deliver their messages staying strictly on point. People don't want to read a novel  all the time sometimes they just want the news without all the filler. When you are limited on space you are pressured into  being  sincere because you less room for error. Confucius knew how to pack a punch into a sentence  which is why we are still quoting him today. A few of Confucius's sayings were, "Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves", "Respect yourself, and others will respect you", and "What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others". I love a good quote. Getting back to my topic I decided I would base today's post on a common expression. It goes something like the grass is not always greener on the other side or it is greener.......dang it I can't remember exactly how it goes.

19. The Grass Could be Greener....or it Could be Covered in Dog Poop
Your born. You spend years in school that is mandatory. You then choose what to spend the rest of your life doing. No matter what you decide to do after high school you always want to do better then what you have. I get that, everyone has a natural urge to better themselves. Now where this urge becomes a bit self-indulgent is where you turn into a sucky person. I do not like people that sit around waiting for the next thing to come along that is better then what they have. Then they throw away what they had and just move on without even a thought. We do this with material things such as cellphones and toys which I understand once something you once loved becomes obsolete you get the new version. I get that, what I don't get is doing this with people. Relationships ending should never be based on finding someone new so you get rid of the old. People that do that suck because obviously you were not happy in your current relationship so you should have ended it when you realized that. Don't lead somebody on just because you enjoy the comfort of having a spare around just in case you need it. We do this with friendships too, we let our old friends be replaced by new ones or new boyfriends/girlfriends. Not saying stick in a bad relationship I'm saying realize the difference between abandonment  and a mutually beneficial separation. So yes the grass could be greener on the other side so go ahead try it out if you want but just so you know dog poop smells and sucks to get off of your shoe.

I should be asleep by now because I have to be at my roommates' parent's house by 9 a.m. You know once you live with somebody and they know your schedule it becomes hard to get out doing things you don't really want to do. For example, tomorrow I have to go to an Indian party because when she said that I had to go she also made sure to point out she knew I had nothing else to do. The I have homework excuse only bought me a reason not to stay for the entire party. Don't get me wrong I am sure the ceremony that Indian's do to bless a new house is going to be wild, I just would rather do homework or watch a movie or swim or really do anything else that does not involve me getting up at 8 a.m. Besides no good party starts at 10 a.m. thats when the good ones should be ending.

18. Is it Halloween? Then why are you wearing a costume

Halloween is really high on my list of top ten holidays, I love any holiday that involves me drinking with all my friends while wearing a costume or t-shirt.(Yes, I really do have a list of the top ten best holidays and Christmas is not even on it.) I think people love to put on costumes because it gives them a chance to be anybody they want to be while getting a break from being themselves. I love costumes on Halloween but on any other day of the year I like people to be who they are. It sucks when you really think you know somebody then they do something that makes you question if you ever really knew them.

18. Is it Halloween? Then why are you wearing a costume?
BE YOU! Best advice anybody could ever give somebody it would be to be themselves no matter what. If you are a douche then be a douche don't pretend to be nice at first then later on suddenly morph into super douche. If you like to sleep around then admit you sleep around don't pretend your all innocent then when all the people you've hooked up with come to light you will look dumb. Nobody likes to feel like they were tricked. I think people were more mad about tiger woods sleeping around on his wife because he tried so hard to portray the wholesome good guy. Be honest you will get more respect that way. People that pretend to be something their not suck.

I was going somewhere else with this but now i'm tired and going to bed. Something involving how I don't get what the point of bacon flavored vegetarian products or non-alcoholic beer. But I will visit those complaints another day.I could edit this later but I probably won't because my laziness usually wins. Helllooo weekend your so close I can almost see you.

17. Entitlement-itis

What is Entitlementitis?
Well in case you didn't know entitlementitis is a behavioral disease that causes people to think that the whole world owes them something. They will walk around with expectations for things that they have not worked for but feel that they deserve. They have not realized that nobody is owed anything and nothing in life is guaranteed.
Entitlementitis can be short-term or long lasting, in most cases the length of the flair up can only be determined by the individual. If you or somebody you know experiences this disease for a long period of time please smack them across the face. Yes, it is ok to slap yourself.

What causes Entitlementitis?
The cause of entitlementitis is unknown, it has been determined that it can not be blamed on genetics. It is believed to be caused by a combination of environment and individual personality. If people are consistently given whatever they want and have people telling them it is ok then of course they will continue to benefit at no cost to themselves. TINSTAFL- there is no such thing as a free lunch (see I learned something in high school thanks Mr. Mann) one example would be if your entire family is on Medicaid then all the people working around you are paying for your family. It is not FREE!

How is Entitlementitis  diagnosed? 
There is no test invented yet to determine who has the disease. Luckily the symptoms are easily caught through human interaction. Since the symptoms are not easily hidden most of the time you can tell if somebody has the disease by having a conversation with them. If they constantly claim to be the victim and sit around expecting things they have not worked for chances are they have the disease.

How is it treated?
Behavioral diseases are usually the hardest to treat. Because people's personalities are so different every person would likely need a personalized treatment plan. Some steps that could be taken if you or somebody you know has the disease:
1. Slap them(  I don't condone violence but in this case some people are so deep in it they need something drastic)
2. Repeatedly tell them nobody owes them anything! When I say nobody I mean nobody, not their parents, not the government, not your job. We are guaranteed nothing in our lives just the air we breathe and some day I'm sure we will have to pay for that.
3. Have them watch a Disney movie because musicals make you want to dance and cartoons are cute so when you put them both together it will make anybody smile.
4. Smack them again to make sure they have come back to reality. Oh and people that do suffer from entitlementitis suck.

Now that I have informed everyone about this fatally annoying disease please everyone spread the word. I will spread the word while I go watch the Saints take on the Vikings soooo happy it's football season :)

16. Why You Gotta go and make things so complicated?

I would like to thank Avril for the inspiration on this one. Puzzles are fun, when I was younger we went through a puzzle phase. Those 1000 piece puzzles would sit out on the table until we finished it and we would freak out if we lost even one piece along the way. That would be bad news bears for sure. Why did we have to do the 1000 piece puzzle instead of hmm an 100 piece puzzle. You get the same result at the end of both kinds, you get some picture of a flag or pony. So why did we feel the need to do the puzzle with the 1000 small pieces. Because it was a bigger challenge and bigger challenges bring bigger rewards. Back then 1000 pieces just seemed so much more exciting.

16. Why you gotta go and make things so complicated?
I think it was in middle school technology class or maybe it was high school Spectra....anyway in some class we learned the acronym KISS which means keep it simple stupid. I really do not understand why some people just feel the need to make simple things sooo complicated. Leads to why we have all had hours of conversations spent counseling friends on should they stay with their boyfriend who still hangs out with his ex-girlfriend who is dating his best friend that your hooking up with. I mean really people do we just need drama to survive. I do not get it, sometimes I can't even keep track of who is friends with who. You know where it gets really bad, goodness you want some constant drama hang out in any workplace. It never fails as soon as one person walks out of the door you will hear what everybody else is saying behind their back. It is like for a group of people to function there has to be hierarchy that involves various people being punching bags. So in case you can't decipher who the sucky person is in this topic it is the person making things complicated. The person who brings the drama or always brings obstacles for anybody involved to jump through. Complicated is not always exciting sometimes it is just annoying.

For some reason I am on my way to becoming an insomniac because for some freaking reason when 3 a.m. rolls I feel like my day should be starting. Which is weird because I have never worked a night shift in my life so why my body feels that 3 a.m. is the best time for me to be productive I don't know. Guess this means I need a career that happens between the hours of midnight and 5 a.m. This sucks because if I went to bed right now I would get about 5 hours of sleep. Ahh thank you internal clock for getting screwed up somewhere in the last few weeks. Hopefully tomorrow I can trick my body into being semi-normal and actually start my work oh lets see during the hours of anytime before 3 a.m.
......sooo expect a post tomorrow right around this time because like everyone else my body doesn't listen to me.
***Sidenote, if we removed cuss words and the word like from our vocabularies they would sound really different. Because we use like as a filler usually to buy time for us to complete our thoughts and curse words are really just unimaginative. So today when your talking attempt to do it without using the word like or any curse words and see if your conversation doesn't seem ten times more intelligent.

15. Dude we get it, you hate your job...

This is an open letter:
Dear Sir Sucks-a-lot,
I am fully aware that nobody grows up saying they want to work at places like 7-11 or Burger King or Wal-Mart for the rest of their lives. But since you are working at a job you hate you might as well put a freaking smile on your face. Actually forget the smile I just want you to do your freaking job without an attitude. Guess what you are not the only person in the world that hates your job and I am not paying you to slowjack when all I want to do is to get out of the store as quickly as possible. Dude the choices you made obviously didn't lead where you wanted to go but since your here let me give you a few suggestions. Get off your cellphone as soon as you see somebody waiting in line and don't act as if a customer needing service is interrupting your personal time. Because if I'm not mistaken your the one wearing the uniform and getting a paycheck for a little something you should be doing called work.
Thanks and Goodnight
P.S. In case you didn't realize you kinda suck

14. Try not to be extremely lazy

Procrastination is a talent of mine, I am actually pretty awesome at it. If I have to write a ten page paper for class that I was given two months to write I will probably wait until the last week before class is out to do it. Then I will spend every last minute scrambling to get it done so that I can get a passing grade. Why do I continue to do this, well I am lazy when it comes to certain things. I will watch a movie instead of reading for school or I will sleep in instead of working out. My laziness typically only affects me so I am not too worried about it. Sometimes I will actually do my homework ahead of time and sometimes I won't. Now since my laziness only effects me I would not say that I am extremely lazy. The people that are extremely lazy are just annoying.

14. Try not to be extremely lazy
Again I am going to go to my job for an example of extreme laziness. Since I work in the pharmacy people will call us when they run out of refills and expect us to call their doctor to get them more. Guess what calling your doctor for you because you are too lazy to do it yourself is not in my job description we do it as a courtesy. So when people call yelling at us because we didn't get a new prescription from their doctor really not our fault. Some doctors offices actually require the patient  to call themselves because really it just makes more sense. Littering is another example of extreme laziness because really how hard would it be for you to find a trashcan. Rule to live by, do not ask anybody else to do something that you can do yourself. Extremely lazy people suck. 

For some reason I am super tired and am falling asleep as I write this so i'm taking a nap before I tackle the two weeks of schoolwork I haven't done. Yep procrastination at it's finest. I will probably never learn.

13. Eat Dirt.,.,.,.,.,

My name is Amanda and I'm NOT an alcoholic. Don't worry this is not a cry for help and I do not need any 12 step programs to kick alcohol but I could probably use some to kick my other bad habits. This weekend is a holiday weekend and all I want to do is chill somewhere with cool people drinking lots of alcoholic beverages. I'm making these statements because I have been called an alcoholic before and for some reason today I was reminded of it. The definition of an alcoholic is when somebody is drinking alcoholic beverages at a level that interferes with physical health, mental health, and social, family, or job responsibilities. Have I had a job since I was 16 yep, do I have regular responsibilities yep, and do I do my school work.....well no but I can't blame that one on alcohol sadly. I don't do my homework because I am easily distracted. Now that we have clarified that, til the day comes that I have a drink first thing in the morning I think i'm good. Honestly drinking everyday would be a chore to me at this point but every few days is a must. I just wanted to clarify i'd be closer to a binge drinker not an alcoholic for future reference.

13. Eat Dirt
Your probably asking yourself what my binge drinking has to do with eating dirt. Nothing. Honestly the two topics are not really related in any way. If you want to know anything about me I am a little random so sometimes you will see I write whatever comes to mind. I love anybody that is willing to put themselves out there and make a fool of themselves. You have to be able to make mistakes to make it in anything or anywhere in life. Sucky people are the ones who will try to put up this front, like they've never fell down in front of a crowd or had food on their face. To have the right to laugh at anybody else you have to be able to laugh at yourself. So if the day comes when you fall face first in a pile of dirt (this is metaphorically, but if you really end up with dirt in your mouth that works too) laugh don't pretend it didn't happen.

In case you were wondering the definition of binge drinking is  the consumption of five or more drinks in a row by men — or four or more drinks in a row by women — at least once in the previous 2 weeks. So all my friends out there that are going to spend the day binge drinking and enjoying people have fun. But please binge drink responsibly. To all my sober friends have fun too. Happy Holiday :)

12. Write your judgments in sand not stone

I'm back!!!!! Anybody miss me? No ha oh well. This week has been a little bit off schedule, I haven't been posting regularly and for some reason the posts from my phone came through in gibberish. But now that my friend has headed back to Kentucky I am no longer on vacation which means I have to actually have a schedule that involves more then eating, drinking, and hanging by the pool. Sadface to doing actual work but I am ready to do something productive. Now while I have been gone I have of course kept my eye out for sucky people and their random acts of suckyness!

Now on to today's little topic: judging people. We all do it and anybody that says they don't is a freaking liar. It is human nature to pre-judge everything, consider it a reflex. You walk into a room you of course look around the room and depending on who else is in the room you decide where you want to go. If you see somebody covered in dirt your going to assume they can't afford a shower.We are attracted to people most similar to ourselves or how we view ourselves. If outward appearances were not a deciding factor throughout our lives we would not spend nearly as much time as we do trying to maintain them. There is nothing wrong with this and really judging will likely save you a few times in your life. You know how it could take you a few times hearing a song before it grows on you. Everything and everyone changes, nothing is ever the exact same the second time around. That little feeling in your stomach telling you not to trust somebody will probably turn out to be right in the long run.

12. Write your judgments in sand not stone
Now we have established that judging a situation or person is human nature and that we all do it. Realize after you have made those little judgments of yours realize that they could be wrong. You could get it all wrong! We've all done it, made a snap judgment then come to found out later that you are totally inaccurate. I work in pharmacy and selling drugs to people puts you on the defensive. Just because most of the time you are right when you think people are abusing drugs. You assume people coming in buying nasal decongestant looking dirty are making meth. Most times my assumptions turn out right but there have been a few times that a person has walked up to the counter looking like their on meth and turns out they just sick. So the lesson of the day, go ahead and judge but give people at least an opportunity or two to dispute your judgment. Because we all have our off days and we should allow other people some wiggle room every now and then. Don't be a sucky person and judge somebody then not give them a chance to surprise you. Everyone loves a good surprise :)

Now today has been one of the longest days of my life and I realized people are crazy among other things. I'm going to attempt some homework then ill probably lay myself down to sleep. Tomorrow is a whole new day.

11. Ignorance is bliss but only if you know your ignorant

Confusing? Yess. Now let me explain, rule of thumb you are only as dumb as the last question you asked. It is better to admit you don't know something then to look dumb trying to pretend like you do. Still confused? Hmmm things get lost in translation so easily. Let me try to explain my thought process which is hard because sometimes I don't even get it. Now what I mean is everyone has a brain that is capable of learning and growing. Now some brains grow and learn faster than other brains but anybody can learn. Next point is that people who choose ignorance do it because for a short time it is the easy thing to do. An example would be choosing not to look up your grades for a few weeks because you would rather party it up with the bit of hope you didn't fail the class you never attended. It's ok because you're just buying yourself some more stress free moments. You are choosing to be ignorant but you know your doing it. You also know that the information is out there and once you receive it your in the know again. My former head pharmacist Jay always said ignorance is the best defense. This is because when people come to tell you that you did something you can't do if you say you didn't know you couldn't do it then they will just say don't do it again. Faking ignorance could actually save you one day remember that.

11. Ignorance is BLISS...But only if you know your ignorant
Now let's talk about the truly ignorant people out there. We all have encountered one a time or two, their the people that no matter what you tell them they retain nothing.  It's the people that still claim the Holocaust  didn't happen. Ignorant. Or the people who believe every stereotype like all black people eat friend chicken or that all Asians do nails. Ignorant. Then it's the people that say they hate all gay people or just say they hate a whole demographic. IGNORANT. It is not physically possible for somebody to have met every person in a demographic so that statement should never come out of any body's mouth. Sad part is these people do not even realize that they are ignorant, ignorant people suck.

10. Pity Parties are Lame

I love a good party. Really any kind of party just tell me when and where and I will show up likely holding a bottle of Captain. Housewarming party, going away party, birthday party, welcome home party, hotel party, even a rockband party any occasion you want to celebrate I will be down to join as long as I don't have work or school. Yes I do love to booze but I am still responsible-ish. Anyway one party I don't enjoy being invited too would be a pity party.

10. Pity parties are lame
You know when you are listening to somebody tell you story after story of how much they suck at life and all you can say is agree with them. There is only so much a person can take, I do think sometimes people just need to vent while having somebody listen then they can move one. Thats fine and understandable we all need to release things somehow. But seriously people have you not seen the cartoon Winnie the Pooh? Eeyore was pretty depressing even though he was very cute he brought the mood down. Pity parties are boring and lame so try to keep them to a minimum. If you are invited to pity parties frequently bring captain with you, it will help.

Free Day :)

Soo today I officially made it through half of my dvd collection! I know very impressive what can I say i'm a girl of many talents. When you have literally been on an extended vacation that was unplanned you run out of things to do while trying to save money. Anyway I wasn't really feeling like blogging today so i'm the sucky person right now :( Tomorrow is a new day that will bring a whole new post promise. Actually tomorrow should be a very non-sucky day because Laura will be here so I will have a partner in crime. It will be a much needed break from the stress of not knowing anything around here and missing everyone I know. Night!

9. Ayo Debbie

Describing words. Those dang adjectives that we use to somehow tell people who we are or to tell people who somebody else is. It's hard isn't it? Problem with describing people is that people change so often you can only describe them in the moment that you know them. Somebody that was bad in high school could be a good born again Christian five years later. Or someone you would have described as goofy could easily become somebody sophisticated through the years. That is kind of the beauty of life, we all will get more opportunities to grow that staying same the exact person for 80 years is almost impossible. If you had to put yourself into lets say five words, who would you say you were or even more dangerous how do you think somebody else would put you into five words. Hmm five words to describe myself right now.....Friendly-Patient-Adaptable-Awkward-Positive

Ok so right now I am in the optimistic hopeful mood because things really can't get too much worse. So I went pretty easy on myself but I need to get to the today's topic. If somebody described me I hope they would say that for the most part I am a positive person. I have my moments of bitterness trust me but I try to be optimistic especially about situations that can't be changed. If something happens complaining about it constantly probably won't change the situation. Life is short and full of so many possibilities dwelling on the negative is worthless. People that constantly remind you of what is wrong with the world are downers. Debbie Downers actually.

9. Ayo Debbie
I know everybody has had a debbie downer experience (what do they call  depressing guys... negative nick? haha works for me). Any experience can be brought down faster then an anchor if you have a person who will constantly point out what is bad about it. Actually Debbie downers and Negative Nicks are anchors, they keep things from moving in a positive direction. Not only is it annoying when you have to listen to somebody who just won't stop complaining it can really kill the mood.  They can make a bad experience worse. So when something bad happens assess the damage, pick yourself up and move on. Seriously if I can pick one trait that any successful happy person has it would probably be that their positive even when they have every reason not to be. See the sun in the rain. Carpe Diem. Whatever gets you smiling do it. I promise you nobody will ever tell you they regret that they were too positive throughout their lives. So in case you didn't pick up on it all you Debbie Downers and Negative Nicks you suck. Quit being sucky people and go live a little! Go play with a puppy or something geez

8. Do not incovenience others

This one is short, sweet, and to the point
Its the person going through the self-checkout line in the grocery store with a cart full of groceries.
No even worse it's the person in the 10 item or less line with 30 items
Then its when you let somebody borrow something like a dvd or shirt then they keep it and you don't have it when you need it
It's the two people having a conversation oblivious to the fact they are blocking the entire path for everybody else
Now its the dog poop you stepped in that was left in your front lawn...oh wait you don't have a dog

8. Do not incovenience others
Inconveniencing others for your own convenience is what a sucky person does. You want to know why express lines move slow it is probably the dude with a cart full of groceries. Defeats the whole purpose of the express line right. Yes I get that you are trying to save yourself time but do you realize that by saving yourself time you are tying up a lot of other peoples. Not nice and a very sucky move in case you were wondering.

7. Do What You Say Your Going to Do

In case your did not know keeping your word is important because it is really the only thing most people you meet have to go on. If you go against your word a few times people will stop believing anything you say. Which if you have heard of the boy who cried wolf you know it is not a good idea to be the person nobody believes. Anyway today we are going to use a scene from the play You Suck At Life which is an one man show (off Broadway of course) that renacts moments of random suckyness. I highly recommend seeing it if you are more of a visual person it is very entertaining. Anyway I think a scene from the play go along very well with today's topic.

Scene 1: The setting is actually two places, the first one is an office and the second is a bar.
First Girl 1 calls her friend Girl 2 from her office.
Girl 1: Hey do you want to grab a drink later? I get off work at 6.
Girl 2: Umm...yeah...sure...ok. I can meet you there at 6:30. (Girl 2 is debating if she really feels like having a drink because she kinda feels like lounging on the couch.)
Girl 1: Are you sure you want to go? You don't have to if you have something else to do.
Girl 2: No it's cool I'm just being lazy.
Girl 1: Ok, just meet me at the bar because I will just go there right after work. See you later!
Girl 2: Sounds good!
Fast forward a few hours and Girl 1 is sitting at a bar all by herself.
Girl 1: It is 7:30 and I have been sitting at the bar by myself for almost an hour. She sent me a text saying she was about to leave 30 minutes ago.
Girl 2: Blahh I really don't want to go out now let me text her because I'm not moving from this couch.
Girl 1: Seriously. She is seriously not coming! If I would've known she didn't want to grab a drink I would've gone home after work. Man she sucks!
Scene ends with girl 1 sitting all alone at the bar, drinking by herself....sad scene I know

7. Do What You Say Your Going to Do
I understand we can not predict the future things happen which keep us from doing things that we planned on doing. Girl 2 was 80% sure she did not want to go out so why did she not just say that from the beginning? Having to cancel a plan because you got hit by a car or not doing something you said you were going to do because you have whooping cough is understandable. But since these events really do not happen that often I am going to let you know you are a sucky person if you don't do what you say you are going to do. It is so annoying when people say their going to do something with no intent of actually doing it. Usually when people know you are not going to show up they will make other plans it is that simple. Also it sucks when something doesn't get done like a  team homework or work assignment because the person that said they could do it doesn't. Don't be a sucky person if you have no intent of doing something then say it up front and if something comes up ask for help.

Sort of delirious today I think I have been getting way too much sleep. So that explains why this post is a little A.D.H.D. Goal for today will be too......dang I really need to work on finding something of substance to do tomorrow. Hopefully the post tomorrow will be a little more clearer but I can't make any promises.

6. Don't be a Brat

I do not have any kids and will not have any in the near future because I can't even afford to support myself let alone another human, I am young so I want to enjoy it, and I am selfish. You only get to be young and unconfined once so I am going to do everything I possibly can including but not limited too skydiving, plenty of foreign travel, a lot of late nights drinking/dancing, and whatever else I decide I want to do. You have a kid and they deserve to be your priority. Going out everyday of the week while you have a kid at home is not a good look.

Anyway children relate to this topic because children throw temper tantrums. They cry and scream throwing themselves on the ground sometimes when you tell them they can not have/do something. Kids really love to test the boundaries by doing things even after their parents have consistently told them not too. You all have been in public or at somebodies house where their kid is running around without any rules or limits. First you become very thankful that the kid is not yours then you realize you would not just let your kid run around being bad. I understand it is extremely hard to raise a kid, it is one of the hardest jobs out there that doesn't have set definitions for right or wrong way to do it. But letting your kid get away with doing something  because you do not want to deal with the crying or screaming does not teach them they can't be brats or always get what they want. Your really saying go through life being a brat then people will likely give you want you want because it is the easy thing to do.

6. Don't be a Brat
Now adults you want to know what a sucky person does when they do not get their way. They throw a temper tantrum! Okay so the adult temper tantrum is slightly different then a kid's temper tantrum but the actions are being used to accomplish the same goal. Adult temper tantrums are likely to involve some cussing, maybe some silent treatment, yelling is probable, and actually some adults might still throw themselves on the ground. They will likely do anything to make it hard for people to move on without pleasing the sucky person acting like a freaking baby. Old habits die hard. Life would be great if everybody got everything they wanted right when they wanted it right? Yeah I am going to go with a no on that one. I do not think that would be beneficial to anybody. Also it doesn't work because usually for one person to get what they want somebody has to be the one to compromise. So the whole point to this post is don't be a baby, when the time comes you do not get what you want either move on or use your adult words to express why you think you should get what you want.

So now on with the rest of my exciting day which involves 8 hours of computer training that I probably did five years ago. But I am trying to not be a brat, I am going to go do it without pouting and frowning. Well that is a lie I am not going to do it with a smile because I would like them to know that I do not want to be there. What can I say old habits die hard :)

5. Give More Than You Get

Today is Sunday which means for some people it's the day of the week you go to church or for others it is the day you will spend recovering from a terrible hangover. Either way Sunday is the day of rest so I am going to try to keep this post positive because after all who wants to have their rest interrupted by negativity :)

Now let me explain what I mean by give more than you get.....I do not mean you should live in a cardboard box and give all your possessions away. Because if you do that then won't you just become a person of need? I never quite understood those stories of people who were millionaires then they decided they're lives would be more fulfilled by giving all their money away while moving to Africa to build schools or wells or something. I respect anybody that chooses to do that I am just saying that person will likely not be me. One because I would choose to help the people I know first. Then two if you are smart enough to make millions be smart enough to teach others how to do it. Help others help themselves. Another side note the whole continent of Africa is not a poor destitute war zone. I love that people want to help people there but they should also realize that the people there are willing to help themselves too. Don't forget there are people who need help everywhere.

5. Give More Than You Get
A sucky person would be that greedy person. It is the person who takes what they need then takes extra because they can. Then they do not care if there is none left for the next person. Let me put a disclaimer in early, I am not saying your a bad person if you have money and don't go around giving it away. You worked for it you deserve to spend it how you please. Trust me I am far from being Mother Theresa. But I am saying help whenever you get a chance too and do not be greedy. Simple, thats it. And if you don't want to be a sucky person then whenever your in a position to help somebody do it with no strings attached and no expectations. Truthfully everyone will need help at some point in their lives. Also if your the friend that always rides instead of taking your turn to be the driver it will not take long before your friends would rather not pick you up. Also don't be cheap at the expense of other people, save money but don't do so by letting your friends spend theirs. It is all about balance give and take, balance leaves everybody a little less bitter.

I am now going to watch a movie and plan for tomorrow to be a super productive least a day that gets me out of my slump. My new idea is being positive because I have already gotten way more then I've deserved so I can't really complain. Sidenote: is it just me or are most of the blogs on here religious based?

4. Do not Lie...I repeat do not Lie!!!

Where to even begin, not only does lying suck people that lie suck. With this one your in a lose-lose situation. I would actually be lying to you if I said I have never lied, everyone has done it at some point in their lives. Lying usually paves an easier road to walk on and 9 out of 10 times people don't get caught. I understand the thought process with lying because you feel that you are saving yourself from whatever or whoever.What I don't understand is how some people put themselves in a situation where they lie but know they will get caught sooner then later.

Let me think of a few examples....ooh once a friend of mine lied to my face well not my face because we were talking on the phone. Anyway it was about something that if she would've just told me the truth to begin with we would not have had any problems. But she lied to me once then had to lie to me again to attempt to cover up her other lies, this was all over the course of a weekend. Then she called me Sunday to apologize for part of the stuff she lied about because I had already knew she was lying. The point of the story is really if she had told me the truth to begin with I would have given my opinion and we would have been done. But instead I was mad she lied and for awhile I didn't talk to her. Just sucks that one bad move can erase years of decent ones. Do not risk it.

4. Do not Lie (or at least try to keep it to a minimum)
In most cases I always going to say it is better to tell the truth but a small lie like saying a meal someone cooked specially for you was good even if it wasn't is fine. I personally would rather keep things simple telling the truth leaves you with less to remember. Look around you to those people you know that always claim drama follows them, chances are it is not hard to pinpoint exactly where the drama started. Like when a guy or girl is practically married to somebody then cheats on this person with somebody else. Newflash people IF SOMEBODY IS WILLING TO LIE TO THEIR HUSBAND/WIFE WITHOUT HESITATION THEY WILL NOT HESITATE WHEN IT COMES TIME TO LIE TO YOU. Do not act surprised either because all your friends were letting you go along thinking you're clever but really if you could hear all the conversations they have when your not around they are calling you an idiot. Just think it through before you go around throwing around lies. If you feel that a small one is needed go ahead but don't say you weren't warned. When that 10th time rolls around your going to be the one looking like a sucky person.

Ooh and to warn anybody that reads this I just realized how to do update this blog thing through my cellphone! Which means very random side entries and even worse English sorry for ya.

3. Do not assume anything

Assuming sucks. Its sucks and most people do it on a daily basis,then get angry when what they assumed was going to happen doesn't happen. This is one of the reasons I suck at the moment because silly me assumed when you transfer with a company you shouldn't have to fill out a new application then take another drug test and then sit through 12 hours of new hire training. As I sat this this training which I am required to do all over again the only thing I could concentrate on was how much money and time is being wasted during the four hours of my life I will never get back.

I assumed companies welcome transfers because then they will not have to train them which saves them money. I assumed wrong. I then assumed that people actually know what they are talking about when it is their job to know what they are talking about. I assumed wrong. I assumed then when somebody says they are retiring it means they will never do something professionally again. Again Jay-z and Brett Favre proved I assumed wrong.

3. Do not assume anything
Anybody that has ever worked retail has had to deal with a customer that assumed something and after you let them know their request  is not reasonable somehow you are the idiot. I have worked retail pharmacy for almost five years and before that I worked in other areas that required customer service. So if you have been that person that has called management on a worker before because you didn't exactly what you wanted then you suck. In case nobody else has told you that I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but realize when you assume something and it doesn't go your way you have no reason to be angry with anybody but yourself. Just a little bit of advice on how not to suck :)
