It's also just funny because it's $15 for a name change, and back in the day I got an entirely new journal JUST to change my username. Like, I was THAT BROKE. and now i'm like $15 WHAT A FUCKIN STEAL, SOLD.

stuff my face with chimichangas

okay I'm gonna start a tag series called THE LOST YEARS or something to cover the period of time where I didn't fucking update at all, so like...from 2012 through 2015? I'm just going to pick interesting things that happened and write about them as I remember them. Cliff-notes version, because fuck if I can remember every detail. Which is kind of why I'm doing this, because I don't want to forget the cool things that have happened and ACTUALLY it's been an interesting couple of years.

i must've meowed a thousand times

YO. It's been a while. I haven't done one of these questionnaires in a billion years, so here goes!

Get to know me.

A) What does the last text you sent say? And to whom?
It was to Maia and it was sarcastically singing Adele lyrics: "HELLO FROM THE OTHERRR SIIIIIIDE."

B) What does the last text you recieved say? And from whom?
Jess telling me she had to convince herself not to buy a stack of fucking books LOL

C) What time do you wake up most mornings?
6-6:15 *super sad face* I am not a morning person, but it takes me 25-40 minutes to get to work depending on how shitty the traffic is. Stupid traffic.

D) Are you afraid of walking alone at night?
Nope, I love walking at night!

E) What do you do to relax at the end of a stressful day?
Either go to the gym to work off the stress orrrr eat chocolate. Sometimes both xD

F) Where did your last kiss take place and with whom?
Umm...I walked out of the bathroom and kissed Kevin.

G) Do/did you get into trouble a lot at school?
Not really. Most days I was avoiding interaction like the introvert I am xD

H) Do you enjoy your job? If unemployed, are you content being so?
I do! I'm a Veterinary Technician. I love working with animals more than anything, although my current job has some downsides. I wish some things were different, but it's honestly temporary until Kevin finishes his post-doc, so I can deal with it until then.

I) Do you often pick up on double entendres and innuendos?
Yeah usually.

J) Have you ever been offered drugs but declined?
Listen, I lived in Colorado for like 8 years xD

K) Have you ever met someone who has completely altered your way of thinking?
Probably. Every now and then someone brings up a point that I'd never thought to question before, and when challenged to think of why I do or don't agree, sometimes I find that my answer isn't what I thought it'd be. That sort of thing. I can't think of anything specific off the top of my head, but it happens.

L) Have you ever been offered drugs and accepted?
Shouldn't this have directly followed the declining drugs question? Anyway, yes.

M) Tell us something weird that turns you on.
Like how weird? idk I can't think of anything super weird, lol.

N) When did someone last admit romantic or sexual feelings for you? Was the feeling mutual?
idk I live with my fiance, it happens often. So yeah it's mutual.

O) What is something you have given a lot of thought to lately?
Babies o___o Like, not in the immediate future, but I have been warming up to the idea in recent years.

P) When did you last swallow your beliefs to avoid an argument or confrontation?
tbh it's awful hard for me to do that, it's really unusual. Although a co-worker I get along with pretty well recently was saying how much she hates Obama and I just kept my mouth shut about my own opinion. But that's fucking politics and boring anyway.

Q) Do you usually initiate hugs?
Depends on who it is. With my fiance it's usually me doing the hugging.

R) Are you a very affectionate person?
I can be, but usually no. Emotional shit isn't the easiest thing and I get super awkward about it.

S) Can you roll your own cigarettes?

T) What are you looking forward to?
PAX East 2016!! Fuck yeah! And also the Dirty Girl mud run happening in July, omfg it's going to be so much fun I can't wait!

U) Do you have any tattoos. Do you want any/more?
Hell yes. I have 3 at the moment. I want more. At least 2 more - one on my shoulder and then a half-sleeve on my upper arm. A watercolor tattoo...those are amazing.

V) Are you mentally strong?

W) Are you physically strong?

X) Do you think you’re a good person?
For the most part, yeah, I try to be.

Y) Name one thing you wish you could change about your life right now.
Not having to live in motherfucking Newark.

Z) What do you usually eat for breakfast?
Lately it's been either a protein shake or "protein pancakes" which are fucking amazeballs.

Done! *jazz hands*


whoohoo controversy

Michelle Duggar Miscarries 20th Child

WTF this makes me irrationally irritated, your 20th fucking kid, are you NOT HAPPY with the 19 you already have?! You just want to burden the world with your spawn so they can also have 20 fucking kids and help deplete the Earth's resources faster than ever before. IT'S GOD'S WILL, PEOPLE, OK? If I were religious I'd rant about how god gave us free will and etc., but I'm an atheist so whatever. I'm just sick of seeing this shit on the news and on TV, don't fucking REWARD people for screwing like rabbits, when they're really screwing all of us over because futures generations are going to suffer for it, and


and it seems that stupid people breed the most. We're going to have a wonderful world full of complete morons pretty soon, we're already nearly there already. Now I'm depressed. I depressed myself. >:C

On a more serious note, I do think it's sad that the unborn child - however far along it was that it could even be called a child at that point - had to suffer for the irresponsibility of its parents. Not only are they irresponsible, but selfish. Selfish as FUCK. She's 45; she HAS to know that any children she has at that point in her life are at serious risk of having severe birth defects (hell, the 19th baby is what, mentally challeneged? I just know that he/she barely survived birth as it is) and that STILL doesn't stop them from having more!? Dude. Not cool. Do they not even CARE that they are unnecessarily putting a child through a lifetime of difficulty? It'd be one thing if it weren't intentional, and while it probably WASN'T intentional, they sure as fuck aren't doing anything to prevent it. idk I think that's fucking cruel, personally. I wouldn't want that life.

It's so fucking stupid I can't even properly express my "asdlkfhje3jkhf!!!" Ignorance, naivety, stupidity, BLINDNESS, selfishness. Shit, people, get a clue, how many of us do you really think the world can support? Certainly not enough for everyone to leave the number of kids they have "~UP TO GOD~" fffffffffffffffff *brain implodes*

LOL this isn't even my first rant about the Duggars, probably not the second either. They just. ARRRRRRRRRGGGHHHH. Why are people allowed to pull this shit, and then get a motherfucking TV SHOW ABOUT IT!? That is straight up retarded, this woman should be spayed. Your vagina is not a clown car, bitch! >:|

and lastly:

"There ain't anymore eggs in your hen house! The snake of time done saw to that!"

On a lighter note, I'm done with school for this semester! Now I'm waiting to see if I passed my classes get into the Vet Tech program for the spring semester....come on luck!!

I'msotired zzzzzz

I like to turn into a cat sometimes~

Well. There went a few weeks with no entries. I didn't do it on purpose though! I started getting carpal tunnel so I had to limit the use of my right hand as much as possible to make it go away as fast as possible. It was...hard, LOL. It's still tough D: If I ever lost my right hand, damn, I would just be up shit creek, because lefty is NOT very efficient =\

But it wasn't that bad to begin with, I realized early on what it was, so I've got a brace and I've been icing my wrist, and I've got some NSAIDs to keep inflammation down. It seems to be improving, so whoohoo! :D

ANYWAY SO HEY GUESS WHO'S GETTING A SONY VAIO? AWW YEAH. I've been wanting one ever since high school, it's pretty much my dream laptop *_* I'm using the money I'm getting from my tuition refund. Yeah whatever I have to pay it back someday, but the way I see it, I'll either have a great career going or the economy will have fucking collapsed and I'd have been screwed regardless. I also need to use some of it to get my eyes checked and go to the dentist. I haven't done either in years and I'm long overdue.


It's been so rainy out all day, it's STILL raining. And Kevin's gone to a science convention. So I spent a lot of today playing WoW XD Anyway I was in a dungeon with a random group of players, toward the end we were crossing this crumbling bridge over a lava pit and this happened:

Tank: *in bear form* :D I should jump off! :D *gets closer and closer to the edge*

Healer: TEEHEE~


Healer: Noooooo!! D:


So stupid wtf XD It's really fucking annoying when two players are all flirting with each other and shit while the rest of us are trying to play *eyeroll* He was like saying dumb shit to be funny to her the entire time, neither of them acted like the other players even existed until we had a wipe and suddenly the rest of us were dumb for not killing the adds fast enough. Fuckers.

So yeah I thought it was kind of hilarious XD I don't even know if anyone on here plays WoW at all, but basically, a dumb bear fell into a pit of lava because he was stupid :D

As a side note, I'm starting to feel as though I don't like a lot of the other girls who play WoW =\ They're just so... "teeeeheeeee~ I'm a kitty, KITTIES ARE CUTE!! :D I know nothing about gaming LOLOLOL!!!" or "GRR WHY ARE THINGS NOT DYING. MY CLASS SUCKS!! >___< OMG I'M LOST WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU GUYS!? WHAT THE FUCK. 5 WHOLE MINUTES TO GET INTO A DUNGEON?!!!?!" or they have to fucking make a big show of the fact that they are girls and they know how to play WoW. Like that's something special :P Yeah, there may not be as many of us on there as guys, but there are still a lot of us, and people like those girls are kind of embarrassing.

...Also, I seem to attract all the creepers of the internet on there, somehow. I always get weirdo players running up and doing inappropriate things to my characters, or my poor poor mounts D:

Anyway. Damn it feels later than 10:30. I hope I can wake up tomorrow without Kevin to poke and prod me until I get up :P I've been going to bed earlier lately but it seems I still need to hire a marching band to wake me up. I could probably sleep through just about anything D:

Annnnd Rory keeps sitting in front of the screen, so I guess she has decided it's time for me to stop typing and pay attention to her. ;p

FML wanting to do things you can't do

oh god dammit I want to draw right now, so badly, it's the only thing I want to do and it's the one thing I CAN'T do because I'm going to fucking get carpal tunnel if I keep trying to do it >_< well, I've never had it before, so I don't totally know what it would feel like but I googled the symptoms so who needs doctors AMIRITE?!

Yeah so anyway, joking aside, Friday night I had been working on something for a while and when I stopped, my hand was numb and my fingers were all tingly so I freaked and stopped drawing, then made myself abstain until about last night when I tried sketching something quick. Fifteen minutes or so later my fingers are tingly again, so I stopped. ARGH. Why me?! Dammit!!


I'm also worried that I have a cavity (another thing which I have never experienced, so I'm not totally sure about that either), and have been for a while, but there's literally nothing I can do about it when I have no extra money to spend on a trip to the dentist. I'll just have to wait and see what I get back for my financial aid refund and maybe I'll be able to do it then.

I also need new glasses/contacts because my eyesight is beginning to suck.

...I also need to figure out how to launder money because this shit is ridiculous.

In um, better news...school is going fine, minus the fact that the biology lab is a fucking refrigerator....wait. Okay fun fact: all my life, for some fucking reason, I've been spelling it 'refridgerator' WTF WITH A D IN IT. WHAT THE HELL THAT'S NOT RIGHT. LOL. WHAT. Anyway yeah, so the lab is like being in an icebox even though it's been in the 90s until this week, so I've taken to wearing sweatshirts and jeans to school just so I can stay warm enough to be able to concentrate on what the instructor is talking about @_@ Other than that, it's been going well :3

Jesus christ wtf my cat is seriously broken today, all he's been doing is going around the house and YOWLING for absolutely no reason at all. Not sure what he's on about, I don't really pretend to understand his eccentricity LOL. I love my cat, really, but this is ANNOYING D:

but anyway, what else....oh yeah I must nerd out about the fact that I've reached level 85 on my main toon in WoW TEEEHEEEE~ LOL, yeah whatever, laugh/roll your eyes at me, go right ahead. At least I'm not one of THOSE people. You know, the kind who don't understand what life is like without World of Warcraft? Everyone knows at least one! IDK, not really sure how anyone can sit there all day and do nothing but play WoW but they manage it somehow o_O The game gets a bad rep for "ruining peoples' marriages" or whatever but it's seriously stupid to blame a game for a person's irresponsibility LOL. If not WoW I'm sure it'd be something else, in their cases.

I suppose that about wraps it up. Freaking Labor Day and nothing being open... *grumbles*

droppin' washingtons!

Holy shit I need to clean this thing up a bit. Everything is so old, so ooooollllld @_@ and I'm kind of sick of my username =\ but the ones I would want are taken.


Okay, so the other day I was lamenting the fact that my days seem to pass by so quickly. Kevin recommended that I start writing in a journal, as he thought it would help, so I'm really going to try to keep it up this time. Really I am!

So, these are the things going on in my life right now...Collapse )

So anyway those are the two main things going on. I'm also getting excited because jesscheaux is coming to visit me for a week in November! :D She never comes to LJ anymore so she won't see this and squee with me but whatever XD

Okay also, games I play right now: WoW, Dragon Age, Fable 3 and I'm trying to get into Mass Effect. I started a pt but I haven't played in a while.

Anyway, that's pretty much all I have to talk about. Yep.

Writer's Block: School days

Do you think kids should learn about sex in school, and why?

FOR THE LOVE OF THE GOD I DON'T BELIEVE IN, YES. Ignorance sure as fuck isn't working. LOL


lol hi! Been a while since I posted, and things have changed a bit for me so I figured I should write something in here. I wouldn't call this my triumphant return to blogging or anything, I mean you can fully expect me to disappear for another... *counts* ... six months after I post this XD;; but who knows! Maybe not. I dunno.

Anyway wtf was happening last time I updated...oh right, I was doing freelance and enrolled at DeVry University. Well, that went to shit because my car decided it wanted to be a defiant SOB and it began to develop an overheating issue, and when I went to get it looked at I found out there was not only a leaking transmission but also the head gaskets needed to be replaced. Which would have ended up costing more than my car was worth...so basically I was told that I was driving a car that could expire on me at any time, and since DeVry was almost an hour away it was just not a risk I felt like taking, and so I had to drop my classes there.

It wasn't so bad in retrospect, I wasn't really digging DeVry. They had a weird way of doing things, and because I was commuting some of the classes were only once a week so if you missed one class it was like missing two weeks of a regular class @_@ Plus, despite meeting in-class we still had to do stupid online crap like forum discussions and quizzes, which I find impossible to keep up with due to all the distractions of the internet.

So yeah, I actually dropped my classes shortly after my last post. I've still been doing some freelance, working with the same company I mentioned previously, but all of these failed college experiences thus far have taught me that I should never try to take a hobby and turn it into a career. I'm sure it works out great for many people, but evidently not for me. Every time, it just starts to feel like a chore and it sucks all the fun out of it and I end up not even wanting to do these things on my own time let alone for other people. I don't know why I thought web design would be different. I still love it, but I don't want a career out of it anymore. I'm fine doing a little on the side for some extra cash, but yeah, not really wanting to do this for the rest of my life anymore.

Expensive lesson, but you can't know these things unless you try. So then, what am I doing now, anyway? Well for one thing I told myself I shouldn't aim so high. I have been trying this whole time, like I said, to turn a hobby of mine into a career so that it would feel like I never had to work. So I thought that instead, I should focus on a job that I would NOT be doing outside of work, something that is not really a hobby, and for a while I didn't really know what the hell that would be.

And then my mom was telling me that I should do some volunteer work to get out of the house and maybe I would find some job opportunities through connections I'd make with other people, so I remembered the Fort Collins Cat Rescue, the shelter I had planned on volunteering at in 2009 (and then missed the meeting because I had the flu). At that point I was also considering getting into a vet tech program somewhere, but I wanted to be sure that this time I wasn't going to make another mistake. The shelter also has a Spay/Neuter clinic and I figured if I could get some work there, I could gain some experience and get an idea of what I would be getting into. Not only that, but if I did decide that being a vet tech is what I wanted to do, the volunteering would look really awesome on my resume.

That was a month ago, and I've been doing a lot of volunteer work at the clinic since then. Things have worked out SO much better than I ever thought they would, everyone at the clinic is SO NICE and the techs are always teaching me how to do things. I've learned a lot from them so far, you'd really be surprised what they let volunteers do! o_o

My first day there, I walked in and basically one of the techs held up a thermometer to me and another volunteer and was like "Who wants to take this dog's temp?! 8D"

I did it, haha. Typically whenever I go there I can expect to help restrain animals, take temps, draw up vaccines, run heartworm tests, and help out with any miscellaneous task that they need me to do. I've also been taught how to give injections (microchips and vaccinations, although only employees are allowed to give the rabies vaccinations so I haven't done that, but I've given a distemper shot! XD) and I've drawn blood samples a few times, too.

I am never unsupervised while doing these things, of course, because I'm still learning. But everyone seems more than willing to teach me this stuff, it's SO awesome, like I said I've learned so much in just one month there. I've seen a few surgeries, too. The veterinarians don't mind when volunteers watch, and today I was watching a dog being spayed and the vet was super nice and was explaining things to me as she was doing them, it was just so cool :D

One of the techs was also telling me that if I kept volunteering regularly, like a couple times each week, then there's a good chance that I could get hired there because apparently they will teach you all of the things you need to know to work there (which I believe, for sure, LOL). She said one of the employees is leaving in August, so that might be when I could get in, which would be BEYOND awesome!!

I'm not going to put all my eggs in one basket or anything, I mean fully intend to get into the vet tech program at the community college whether I can get the job there or not, because I just want to have the entire education regardless. But I was talking to my sister (who IS a vet tech) and she said that all the stuff I've been doing/seeing is basically what the job normally consists of. So I'm pretty much halfway there already! Crazy, right??

But really, I am loving it, I enjoy being there and I'm not even getting paid for it. I find it totally rewarding and I love getting to see all of the animals that come in, all shapes and sizes. I got to hold the CUTEST LAB PUPPY EVER last week, omg his owners are so lucky I decided to give him back ;D I've seen the angriest cat on the planet get vaccinated, a dog that lost a lot of weight and had these big skin folds draped over her tail (THAT was strange o_O) and...a kitty abortion...well, they weren't kittens by any means and didn't look like anything remotely recognizable, but it was still a bit jarring to realize what I was seeing, you know?

I'm just glad that I'm not at all squeamish. I can compartmentalize pretty well, too. For example, stitches CREEP ME THE FUCK OUT but I was watching the vet stitch up that dog earlier and had no ill reaction at all, until I got home and started thinking back on it XD

So anyway, I'm really thinking that this is it, this is what I want to do. I've always loved animals, often times more than people, and I remember as a child I was always saying that I wanted to be a veterinarian. I don't think I want to be a full-on doctor, just because it seems so high-pressure and I don't want to kill an animal by accident o_O ...but being a tech is definitely something that I can do.

I'm going to the meeting at the community college in April, it's the first Wednesday of each month and I missed last month's meeting by ONE DAY agh! But anyway, it's a separate meeting to get into the vet tech program so I'm aiming to get into the Fall semester, and spend the summer semester making sure that I've got all my prerequisites done. I think I might only need the Medical Terminology course, but we'll see :3

So anyway, there's a big fat update for ya. Other than that, I've been playing a lot of Dragon Age 2~ omnomnom.

Also, I couldn't fit this in anywhere, but we did end up getting a new car. It's a 1999 Saturn, affordable and it's been okay so far XD

mmkay, I have to go and finish my sink-full of dishes. BLARGH D:



My mom just told me (via Facebook message 9_9) that our "free loader cat" has died.

Fisher was technically our neighbor's cat, but most of the time it felt like we had joint custody of him. He wasn't a young cat, I remember back when our neighbors got him as a kitten. They let him go outside and he'd wander down to our yard, and I always worried about that tiny little kitten and hoped he'd be okay being outdoors like that. I guess he got so used to us that it was no big deal to him to hang around all the time; eventually he started getting into our house and he would eat our cats' food. My parents didn't want him in there at first, and then my mom would call the neighbors and let them know that Fisher was hanging around here if he didn't go home that night.

So it always felt like Fisher was a member of our family too. Mom said he was hit by a car on route 5. Seems like a lot of animals die there ):

Fisher freeloading.

I'll miss him. At least I got to see him while I was in Vermont last month, though. FISHER ;_;
