2016 so far

...has already had quite a few ups and downs. The Ups My dad's store moved to a new location and it is pretty amazing. Nicer and newer with better parking and facilities.

'Cause I need one.¬†¬†But I want it to be cute.¬† It's been a tumultuous week.¬† There's been work craziness, house craziness¬†and¬†school craziness,¬†all of which were made worse by my hormonal craziness.¬† I'm at my wit's end with two of those things and it's not the house.¬† I have been such a basket case it's scary.¬†...

...catch up that is?¬† It seems that real life, including not enough sleep, have taken a lot of my time away from¬†the¬†"internets".¬† Ah well, that's just how it goes I guess.¬† Basketball:¬† First of all, can we just say wow and congrats to the Belmont Bruins for what was apparently a great game against Duke...

can you live-blog a tornado?

Ahhhhh!!!¬† These storms and tornadoes all over the place scare the poo outta me.¬† The Accountant and the dog are snoozing like well, babies.¬† How do they do that?¬† I'm glued to the tv with a flashlight, my cat and my cell phone by my side.¬† Two deaths in Huntingdon?¬† Did I just hear that...

a bunch of hooey?

What in the name of all that makes logical sense on this earth does this sentence mean? For the demarcation of the fields where impulse should be as completely as possible dependent upon and correspondent with external situation, those in which reference should take prior place from those in which it may be subordinate to...

It feels like I've been doing¬†quite a bit¬†of waiting the past few weeks.¬† I've been waiting for school to start, waiting for my next doctor's appointment and waiting to tell work about both of these things.¬† Last week I broke the news at work.¬† I told¬†both bosses separately but I went ahead and dropped both...

testing experience

I'm going to give a quick update on today's GRE experience¬†just because I'm the one who brought it up in the first place and now I need to close it out.¬† If that makes any sense to anyone but me.¬† It took three hours and was your typical computer administered test.¬† I am pretty sure...

I'm so tired.¬† My eyes are red and bloodshot, my face feels hot and I'm¬†dragging through the day.¬† I've come to the conclusion that I just¬†plain don't sleep well five out of seven nights a week.¬† I wake up with my neck and shoulder muscles all tense and stiff.¬† I don't have this problem on...
