The Good: I'm back in school geting my Masters degree. I no longer have the horrible job I hated so much. I have the cutest dog named Stella. Best of all, I've been dating a great guy for 5 months now.

The Bad: I don't have a job and am running out of money.

That's pretty much where I stand at the moment. Everything is great with the boyfriend, the dog, friends and family but the not having a job sucks. Hopefully, eventually something will come up and I will get a job so I can have money again.

Current Mood: contentcontent
Wow..Ok well I haven't had the internet in months since the last person I was stealing it from moved..and then my computer started messing up on me..but over the last week I've been able to steal internet and my computer hasn't blacked out on me..Anywayz..ummm..it's been over a year since I moved to Austin..I still really like it here..I've been at my job for a year..well in like a week it will be a year..I can honestly say I hate it..it's a call center for an insurance company so I pretty much only deal with agents..but they are some of the dumbest people I've ever talked to in my life..The one good thing is that I like my coworkers and my supervisor is the best..I can't imagine anyone getting me better than she does..if I ever leave that will be the thing I miss most..although I doubt I will be leaving anytime soon since the economy is shit..I am thinking about getting my masters and am currently looking into that..I hate school but it's something I know that I need to do..I feel like I don't have a choice..I just have to..and I might as well do it now..I've been using my hatred for my job as motivation..Ummm..currently I'm single..I tried things again with the ex or whatever he was..adn of course things ended badly again..I've come to realize that he is a crappy person and I deserve better..so no real loss there..I have made some amazing friends that actually have their shit together or are at least trying..so it's nice to be surrounded with friends that I actually respect..I'm excited because I'm going to see Depeche Mode again in August :-) and before that I have a lot of other concerts that I need to find people to go with me to see..Well I guess that's about it..the super short version of everything..

Mar. 15th, 2008 @ 11:22 pm So tired..
Current Mood: exhaustedexhausted
Current Music: Depeche Mode- Useless..
Well me and a bottle of wine just had a go at it..sufice to say I won..but barely..and the sucky thing is that the wine isn't even that good..Oh my God..I've just spent the last like 24 hours with Erin..and we only slept for like 5..and that is WAY too much..it also doesn't help that I had to help her move into her new apartment and I hate moving..I didn't even want to do it when I moved..which is probably why I got rid of over half of my stuff cuz I didn't want to carry it anywhere..Anywayz..I know why..but I hate the fact that when I spend too much time with her I leave and I've practically gone nuts..She can be a nice person but she's alwayz had this catty bitchy side to her..which is usually entertaining..but she's alwayz SO negative..I mean I know that I'm not exactly the most optimistic positive person but I can generally let something go or just not let it ruin my whole day..she can't..the weirdest and most frustrating this is that she alwayz makes something into a competition or if I say I like something or want something a certain way then she has to make a comment how she likes things done with this attitude that her way is better..The one that Rachel found the most amusing was when I moved into my apartment I was excited because I have a fan in the living room and the bedroom but the point is that the light fixture is just a single bulb and then the thing that covers it..right who cares..so anywayz..when she went to go look at the apartment that she just moved into she noticed that the light fixture in the fan had the 3 light bulbs and overall does look nicer...The point is who the fuck notices that and then tells someone!? Why feel the need to say that your light fixture on the fan is better than mine??? Another one that struck me as funny was the other day we were driving on 35 to go to Georgetown and she was talking about how when she gets a new car that she wants a Jetta because they're one of the safest cars..so she then tells me about the safety of the car and how it has a metal frame inside and if it were to roll over that it probably wouldn't cave in and etc..then she basically says that my car would and isn't as safe...As we are driving in my car to go run and erran for her! Ok so to another thing..I don't like Subway and I've said this before..there's too much bread and I don't like all the vegtables..so we went to go eat at this drive through Italian food place for dinner tonight and she says that next time I should try a sandwich even though I don't really like Subway but it's ok cuz this place isn't like that..so I said well that's cool cuz I like sandwiches but I don't like Subway because I feel stupid eating there because for the most part I could make something like that at home and I feel like I'm wasting money..so she replies with Well I like all the vegtables and that's like my favorite part so it makes sense for me to go to Subway because I can get that there and it's better than buying the vegtables and letting them go bad..Does that really seem like to normal response in that conversation..and I never even brought up Subway so why have yet another conversation about it..because yes..that was definitely not the first one...which might be why I was so annoyed at this one..I need a few Erin free days and then I'll forget to pay attention to most of the stuff she says again...end rant..

Feb. 24th, 2008 @ 09:57 pm What's the big question...?
Current Mood: annoyedannoyed
Current Music: Silence..
The big question is...what do you want to do with your life..? I fucking hate that question..I have goals and plans and all of that but I dunno what it is but I've never really liked sharing them with other people..and unfortunately if I answer that I don't know more people just feel inclined to give me a lecture about it..I've decided that this needs to stop..People just need to get over it and realize that it's my fucking life and I have no reason to justify it to them..I keep it to myself and keep right on with my plans..which by the way for the last 7 years have pretty much worked out exactly like I said they would..so let's see..When I was 16 I decided that I wanted to graduate from highn school early..so while no one else I knew was doing this I was making sure all the requirements were filled so I could get it done..and then when I fucked up..I made the choice to do what I had to do to fix it and I graduated early..Of course that wasn't enough..so right afterwards I got a job and kept it for a year..and half way through the year I went to community college just to get an start...and I know I didn't plan for actual 4 year college all that well..but I made up my mind that I was going to leave Corpus for it..so amid much protesting from family and friends I moved up there not knowing a single person and never having driven there in my own car because I was alwayz too freaked out..so fast forward 4 and a half years later..and I'm graduating..with an above 3.0 GPA..which I know isn't the most impressive things since it was UTSA but I did actually put in more effort than I ever expected to..and even in that time I made things happen that I said were going to happen..my favorite being that I went to Chicago in November and had one of the best times of my life...and yes...in all that time I made plenty of plans and set many goals and totally fell short and didn't come close to achieving them..but I feel I got the biggest one out of the way (graduating) and for the moment that should be good enough...So now that I'm done I've said to a few people for a while now that I'm going to move to Austin..I'm pretty sure that I didn't tell most of the people I know that I was moving until I got approved for the appartment..and there were some people that didn't even know I was leaving until I was already here in Austin...So now the big question is what do you want to do with your life..well if you all must know the only thing I want to do right now is get a job...when I fist talked about moving here in December when I found the apartment I assumed it would still take me a while to find a job..so when I realized that I wasn't going to be here until February I figured that I would spend that time looking but not worry too much as long as by the end of February I had some kind of job so that I could have money to just live off of..and guess what I did..I got the crappy temp job..yes I hate it...yes it sucks..and it has nothing to do with what I want to do but Oh well...I'm an adult and I need money..I'm sure that if I really wanted to that I could spounge off my Mom still..but you know..I'd rather not do that without at least contributing some if not most myself..So I guess that would mean that one of the goals I have is to finally really be financially independent..and I'm willing to have a crappy job that I'm way too good for that's only gonna last a few weeks just so that I can be one step closer to that goal..So that's where I am right now..So now as for the future I don't know what I want to do yet..The short term things for my life are what I'm really focusing on..but if you want I have some ideas...Well so far I know that I want to do something that I believe in even if it means I make less money than most people..fortunately marriage and kids is not something I want so I know that I can live on less money..which means that I don't ever want to work for some giant company that I hate like Time Warner or Clearchannel..I'd like to work for a non profit organization..and I think the best one for me would be Planned Parenthood..I guess that is the feminist in me talking..doing something for them communications related would be great..I don't mind public relations if it's for a good cause..and I would for sure love to do anything that requires public speaking..another thing that I would want to do is be a critic or reviewer of some kind..music..food..movies..local hangouts..bars..whatever..something that I'm interested in..for a magazine or something since I do like to write..and from what people have said I'm good at it..maybe for something like the Current in San Antonio...or something...I actually kinda forgot about that one until recently...So last is the idea of going back to school and getting my Master's degree..I don't really think I can get into UT and I don't know if I want to really work that hard..but I'm sure that I could probably get in at Texas State if I moved to San Marcus..and I know that I could talk to some of my past professors that liked me a lot..which was weird..but I know there's at least 3 that would give me good recomindations...so I can go back to school and then when I'm done teach some kind of communication class at a community college...So those are my ideas for jobs...I also don't want to stay in Texas my whole life..I figure that I'll spend the next 5 or 6 years getting experience doing anything..basically just working..possibly 7 if I choose to go back to school...and by then I will have the degree..or degrees and enough experience to actually persue getting my "dream job" whatever and wherever that might be..and who knows that plan can change..but at the moment that's the idea..So I guess my point is..wait till I'm 30 and then ask me the big question again...although I have a feeling the answer probably won't change too much other than I don't know..

Current Music: Placebo- Broken Promise..
So..where to start..well I had my last final on December 7th..then my birthday was on December 11 adn I'm now 23 years old..of course I never really feel all that old because mostly all my friends are older than me..then on December 15th I graduated college :-) No more school for me! Graduation was boring as I expected..had some family turn out..my Dad bought me a laptop so now I get to start all over with downloading music..oh joy.heh..Ummm...after that I went to Austin to go apartment hunting with Erin..we saw a million apartments..Ok maybe not that many but a lot..found one I really like..it's huge compared to where I live now although no one I showed the floor plan to really understands how much..but they will when they see it..So I filled out the applications and left the deposits and got approved..and although I don't have a job yet my lease here ends in a week so I'm just gonna go ahead and move cuz I think it will be easier to look while I'm there anyway..Then I went to Corpus for Xmas and we made a bunch of Italian food this year and everything came out really good..went out with Rachel and had fun..and another night with Lisa..hung out with Blair a lot and played Viva Pinata..great game..for New Years I stayed at Blair's house with her brother and got drunk..now I'm back home..so far me and Bob have moved all my big furniture to a storage unit and now I have to have to pack everything else that's coming with me before my Mom gets here or else she might kill me..Ok well I think that's it..I need to be more excited though...I keep wondering when it will all hit me..hopefully soon...

Dec. 24th, 2007 @ 06:20 am Depeche Mode- Leave in Silence....
I've told myself so many times before
But this time I think I mean it for sure
We have reached a full stop
Nothings gonna save us from the big drop

Reached our natural conclusion
Outlived the illusion
I hate being in these situations
That call for diplomatic relations

If I only knew the answer
Or I thought we had a chance
Or I could stop this
I would stop this thing from spreading like a cancer

What can I say? (I don't want to play) anymore
What can I say? I'm heading for the door
I cant stand this emotional violence
Leave in silence

We've been running around in circles all year
Doing this and that and getting nowhere
This'll be the last time
(I think I said that last time)

If I only had a potion,
Some magical lotion
That could stop this, I would stop this
I would set the wheels in motion

What can I say? (I don't want to play) anymore
What can I say? I'm heading for the door
I cant stand this emotional violence
Leave in silence.........

but I have to do it cuz I'm out of clean clothes..So a lot has been going on but I'm tired of talking about it so I'm just gonna try to ride it out and not be as emotional and weird as I usually tend to be..I'm actually doing pretty well in school right now..Since I've been going to my Persuasion class regularly I think the teacher likes me..this is different than usual since most teachers like me to begin with and then I skip class and they tend to stop..without work to make me hate school I've definitely been able to go more which is nice..I'm still worried about the job situation but I've slowly taken steps to make it better...I've written my resume so now all I have to do is send it to every job posting I see here and in Austin..once that gets rolling I think I'll be able to have a sigh of relief..feel like I'm actually on my way to accomplishing something..graduation is on December 15..only a month and a half away..Wow..I still can't believe it..I need to call my brother Mike and let him know that I want him there..I don't know why it's so important to me and yet I keep putting it off..My Mom is coming up here next weekend..I'm looking forward to that and hopefully we will get a lot of stuff accomplished like packing and sending announcements..and I don't wanna be alone that weekend and I want her here..I need to keep remembering that change is good and everything will work out somehow..
