So Much Has Happened

I have come to the conclusion that Thursday nights are the best night of the week! :) Last Thursday night I went out with some members of the Tearoom Family! It was great! I don't even have words to describe it actually...FUN...just pretty much sums it up all around! I even told myself you pry won't be out late so you can get a good nights sleep and....then the night happened, pretty soon it's 4am! Yep! Woke up at 7am went to class 8am to 10am. Cashed a check with B...packed my sutff...and drove home!
Being home was wonderful! I haven't been home since classes started so it was nice to be back. While back actually I was going through some old tubs and cleaning out the stuff I don't need to keep anymore. It was definitely a trip down memory lane looking at all my old stuff. Threw out a bunch of stuff I didn't need for sure as well! Seeing Steph was great! I wish my little sister lived with me right now! I miss her all the time. She's my backbone and my best friend...what more could you ask for in a sister!! I went out to Sam's with her and him and there was the cutest little kitten there!! I wanted to take him BUT i can't have pets!! Booo! So I named him Malley and had to put him back in Sam's barn.

I saw an old classmate today before coming home. It was nice seeing Jewels becuz we got to catch up a little. She recently got engaged and her ring is BEAUTIFUL...OMG!! He did a goooooood freakin' job! I'm so happy for her! :)

Last but not least my mom and I made Mulligan Stew!! Amazing! If you are Irish you might know what I'm talking about. If not, it is a meat and veggie stew (yes that basic). We ended up canning a lot of it today and I got to take a BIG ass bowl home today. I put some in my freezer but I have a feeling it won't last long! I love it and could eat it at every meal! So good!

Well I do have homework and am very tired so I should get back to that so I can get to bed sometime tonight!

On My Mind

Well time is just flying by! It's already Wednesday night! Yay! I'm am so excited for the weekend because I am going home!! I haven't been home since school has started which means I haven't actually been home in a little over 2 months! That's crazy because if i could I would go home every other weekend just to say hi! I'm glad tho that we had my cousins wedding in September so I got to see them at least!

Tomorrow I am the Maitre d' Hotel in tearoom and I'm kinda nervous because I hate serving AND I'm scared I will freak out on the little helper lady because when you understand what you're doing you don't want to be told to do something seconds before you were just going to do it! Wheeew! Anyway...on another note this merchandising class will be the death of me! Fashion majors are waaaaaaay to stuck up for my taste! Just sayin'!

So me n B are in limbo pretty much...we both know we'll never work as of right now, but we still love each other and don't know life without the other one! Yep confusing I know!! :)

Well since I have touched on about everything going through my head right now, I better get to printing off my packed for tomorrow!

Ridin' Solo

Just a few thoughts for today. I guess when I started this blog I thought it might be a good idea to help me deal with being by myself for the first time since high school! Yes that's right high school. In August my boyfriend and I decided to end a six year relationship. We've done it all. Went to different high schools...I went to college--he's in high school...he went to ISU--I'm at Hawkeye Community College...I came to ISU we live with roommates...Moved in together last year...Moved to a 2 bedroom...Now he's Moved out and I'm all alone. At least the break up was mutual and we still talk which is nice in a way. I'm just learning to live my life for just myself for the first time in over 6 years! It has been an experience so far! I hate making people mad, so doing stuff to please other gets a little frustrating.
B has been moved out since September and I still haven't found a roommate! B is still paying the rent and I don't mind living alone I just don't want to deal with him having to pay 2 rents.
I still can't do anything right...I'm trying to move on yet now he's wanting to hang out more. I try to please him still and then when he's mad at me he doesn't have to talk to me. I'm at the crap end of the pool and don't know how to get the hell out!
Well I'm sure I've said to much already but I don't know what to do. I feel a little lost and want to start fresh but can't when I don't know what B wants!! I just wish I could worry about myself first.

Glimpse of the Week

This week has gone by sort of fast for me. Tearoom was crazy on Tuesday because I was the main sanitor and we had a CRAP LOAD of dishes...even Kramer couldn't handle it and dropped a few actually...not a good day for dishes!! Except I got the points taken of for there being too many dishes and not having a sanitor 3. O ya that was my fault becuz it was my idea...AWESOME!
Wednesday was a waste of a day.
Thursday I was a K-prep/Server in Tearoom and for the first time my tables weren't the last ones out or people who didn't understand the concept of it being a "teaching" lab. So for the first time i didn't absolutely hate serving. O one downfall to the day tho was while waiting for my tables to show up 15 ins late. I threw up...I figure it was the coffee on my empty stomach which I haven't had in a while. I'm not sick so I didn't want to tell anyone who would make me leave lab.
Today I was a hard start to the morning but after my afternoon nap I'm ready for work!

O Sidenote-Julianne also hates Johnny along with me and over half of Oelwein...MADE MY THRUSDAY!!

This weekend was pretty laid back Friday stayed in and watched Marmaduke. It was a cute ending ever! :) Last night I went to Des Moines and visited Katie. We went to T.G.I.Fridays and ate some really good food. I had the Capitan Morgan Burger it had a pineapple salsa, special Captain Morgan sauce, and avocado! So GOOD!!
I worked every night 4-close which was kinda nice because I was able to go out if I wanted and still have my mornings to get stuff done. Even thought they were spent hanging out and cleaning a little. Well not much more to report for now!

New Car!

So after driving my white 1997 Buick Regal for 8 years I have a new car! My mom being the wonderful person she is was nice enough to drive it down here yesterday and then stay the night last night! It was nice! The only time I would have made it home to get it would be 2 weeks from now! This car will do many things for me gain muscle from the manual windows...workout my sides from reaching to manually unlock the doors...and gain patience because it's a 4 cylinder! Ha! :) Well that's my excitement for the past few days! YAY!

Little Learning Experiences

So a few things I learned yesterday...

1. I still can't stand beer...sorry can't do it...tried and Failed!
2. Gin & Tonics at Thumbs=pretty good!
3. Haley and Jake are stalkers...well on Facebook anyway.
4. Me and Jess would make a pair becuz we're both light weights...hence the 3 drinks I had last night and was a hot mess.
5. Maggie and I realized we have to be the oldest people in our tearoom class! She's just lucky enough to be done in December.

And last but not least...this morning after waking up, getting ready, driving to the commuter lot, getting on an orange bus, and pulling out my class syllabus......I learned to look at such syllabus before all that becuz my 8am didn't have class! FAIL!! Back to bed for a few more hours before my last class of the week! :)

Keep on, Keeping on!

Saturday was laid back I worked late then stayed in. I wish I hadn't but I worked on Sunday at 6:30 am! Work Sunday was strange because I was being trained for something I didn't need to be...frustrating!
Anyway finally cooked Salmon patties that I have been craving for the past few days last night for supper! Rented Prince of Persia and watched it with B on his big screen. The movie was alright nothing I have to go buy or anything. Speaking of which I want to go buy the Beauty and the Beast tomorrow (SO EXCITED!!) and get August Rush it's just such a good movie! :) Well back to classes for the day then work tonight.

Friday Night

Well last night I finally got out of this cave and went out!! Libby and Jay were my bar buddies and we met up with Lexie and her friend Cory. Lexie was a blast and "took me under her wing" as she kept saying because I don't have bar smarts! Rum and coke was a good choice!
It was fun dancing after people showed up around midnight too bad the DJs sucked! I mean who plays "Hey There Delilah" "Shout" and "We Will Rock You"!! Not ok! Good songs just not after midnight at the bars!
Anyway all in all good night! Definitly wish the bars were cheaper but watcha gunna do?! Now it's nap time before work at 4. Peace out!
