Since I kinda want to get these pictures off of my camera, this post shall be crazy.

The roommate’s feet after walking 1.5 mi on “city” streets.

Here’s bootsie and nibbles meeting each other. It’s quite a story. We were like 95% sure nibbles was pregnant. She had been acting like she was nesting and bit people when they reached into her cage. Plus her belly seemed a bit big. Well, she was just in heat. It’s was quite interesting when we put them together. Nibbles was like, come on, I hope you’re a boy.

Nibbles got hungry.

Saw this on my way to class today. (it’s TMNT by the way)

Me in 1974. Thanks to

Went to the Rec today. First time ever. Pretty fun. I worked out on the rowing machine. It had a good view of the basketball courts where there was a pick up game of shirts v. skins. The ergs (rowing machines) were in the midst of some weight lifting machines= lots of boys. It was funny, I could see them watching me in the glass (it’s reflective ya know). Eventually one of them got on another erg and promptly decided (20 sec later) that it wasn’t the exercise for him.

News on the tallness front- has to do with the above paragraph. When I stood up, you could tell some of them were shocked at how tall I was. And at dinner, someone (RIGHT next to me) was like “wow, tall people”. Am I another species??

Going home on friday. Right after class. Got a list of things to do. It’s like 2 pages long. Includes: things to bring, take, and buy.

And Tiger Balm officially smells better than Icy Hot.


Really, Monkeys?

I know all of you fellow bloggers love to look at the stats page for your blog. It is most definitely the most fun part of my day. Not really. Anyways… I find it entertaining to see what people search to find my page. For the most part it’s just randomness (’cause that’s how I roll, yo) and every once in a while you get a “tall girl, big butt” or something even more obscene having to do with butt’s. Ok, but today something caught my eye and made me laugh. Not just giggle, but honestly, truely laugh (since it’s one of my goals, home skillet… ok, gotta stop talking gangsta) Look at the last item on the following graphic:

Now, what information were they trying to find? Just answer me that.

Subject change! I have this narsty blister on the back of my heel. It keeps growing. It started yesturday when my sock came off the back of my heel in chem lab (wearing tennies) and got worse today during “work”. And i keep finding brownie pieces in my bed. (By the way, I’m working on a food journal project of sorts. It’ll be done in about a week. It should be intersting to analyze. You’ll be able to see how much I can eat to maintain)

Ok and one last thing. No pic for this one. I’m too exhausted. Gatorade: Carbohydrate Energy Formula. Calories:320. Carbs: 79g. Sugars 43g.

Battery- almost dead. good bye.

Oh baby, mama’s sore. Adding different athletic adventures to your life will do that I guess. It made it real interesting standing around in Chem lab. Especially since my drawer with all my glassware and stuff is almost on the floor it’s so low. It was a kinda boring lab too.

Now I’m sitting at study table, waiting for Mr. President to talk… Ok, he’s done talking. Dang, we in trouble. $700 Billion. Someone just told all of us that if you had $1 billion on the day Jesus was born (about 2000 years ago) and if you spent $1,000 every day since then you would still have half of it left now (I thought that was a really cool analogy, so I’m sharing it with you). There’s like what… 300 million citizens in the USA, that’s a couple thousand dollars for each person. I like work, but not it all of it goes to the government.

I guess all I keep thinking about is me entering the work force soon, buying a house in 10 years, and having some moolah for those late night ice cream cravings. No, really, it all makes me a bit nervous. Like more nervous than I am about finding out how well I did on my Spanish exam today.

It was a scary test. It was almost all responses in complete sentences. I guess that I don’t know my Spanish grammar as well as I had originally thought. I guess that’s why I’ll probably be taking the Spanish Composition and Grammar class next… that’s right folks, TG is entering the big girl classes.

I have the worst headache. It’s probably because I’ve been running all day long. I was so tired this morning that I came back to the room at lunch time and took a nap. When I get back after this I want to go straight to bed. I guess I better get crack-a-lackin’ on my homework. Not that I really have any.

Yay Mommy!

Maybe I won’t make you take care of my rat after all, mom. Thanks for all the cool stuff! :

Now our vanity/ sink area glows of purple and bats. Go Halloween! It’s funny, I was looking at buying somthing like this last week.

Because of you I can cross “gum” off my list!


And who doesn’t love brownies? These are yummy. I think the roommate is my going to be my best friend now, lol.

Time to go finish my laundry. As in pull it out of the washer and put it into the dryer for like 10 minutes.


Next time could you send me something along the lines of this?

Everyone, Say hello to Bootsie

This is Bootsie. She is my new baby. But she’s actually a rat.

Ok… let me back up a bit here. You’re probably wondering whats going on. This weekend I went home with my roomate. One of the things we decided on was to buy rats while we were in town (her town is actually a metropolis of 50k, but still larger than our little college town).

Anyways, on saturday we made our 1st trip to PetCo. Rats, cage, food, etc: check. Come home. My baby is sluggish and coughing up blood. Trip to PetCo #2: told to go to the vet (free of charge- but we soon find out they’re closed). 3rd visit to PetCo: get meds for the baby rat.

Then we go see the Producers at the community theater: it was super cute. A bit more sexual than I was expecting, but then again it’s a Gene Wilder thing.

Sunday we go to church, then PetCo and get a bigger cage (for the 2 of them, once mine is healthy) Did I mention we got 2?? Here is B’s: Dr. Nibbles (she bites. and the name sounds, um different, is you say it 5x fast)

And here’s us coming home:

Ok. So now they’re all moved in an everything. I look at my wall o’ stuff and see this. I guess i’m running a 5k next sunday? Probably should have started running again sooner than today. Probably should go work on that.

And I thought I’d add that my mom is just loving the idea of having a rodent in her house come Christmas and Summer. Oh and mom, what if I go on a trip while bootsie’s still around? Will you take care of/ hold her for me? 🙂

Did I post anything yesturday? Did I laugh yesturday? Did I enjoy classes yesturday? Did I feel accomplished yesturday? Did I break a good, can hardly catch my breath sweat while working out yesturday? Really, did I actually live my life yesturday?

I feel like I have gotten so far away from who I actually am. It’s a tricky thing to explain, but I can try. My life has been taken over. Taken over by… life? By change? It’s about time to take it back.

It’s time to start getting back to the blogosphere (because I really miss reading what ya’ll are saying) It’s time to find a reason to laugh every single day, hopefully several times a day. It’s time to start enjoying even the tedious things about classes, because I have at least 3.8 more years of this. It’s time to start doing something with my time. My Tuesdays and Thursdays need more structure (since I don’t have class). It’s time to start running several time a week (until things kick into high gear at work). It’s time to start eating normally- like I would eat at home, sorta. (Eating at the dining center is starting to drive me nuts.) It’s time to start getting things back to normal.

If you were to really know me, you’d know that change kinda makes me crazy. I thought that I had been doing pretty good, up until last night after chem lab. I realized that I’m just going through the motions, not really accomplishing the things that I should be.

I’m not quite sure how to finish this up… But I guess this is my personal mission statement for the next month. So on Thursday, October 16th, ask me how i’m doing with it, ok?
