When spiders attack

September 10th, 2008 (02:27 pm)
current song: Blind by Lifehouse

I hate spiders. I really do. I swear they're out to get me. I had two bad experiences two nights in a row. One in my parents' bathroom and one at the bottom of Ash's stairs. The first night, Sunday night, I ran into one in the bathroom, and it was huge! It's body was as big as a quarter, and it was sort of triangularish!! That night I couldn't sleep because I was super sensitive to everthing (I get itchy when I see spiders). Monday night I was sitting by Ash's stairs and Ash was sitting on them, and we were both minding our own business. All of a sudden I see the exact same spider as last night at the bottom of the steps! I nearly had a heart attack!! I got up so quickly and violently that I scraped my arm on the wall. It looks something like a rug burn, a black and blue rug burn. I then screamed at Ash to, and I quote, "Ash! Get up!!!" She was sitting right over it! Aahhh! I was already so flippin tired because of the last spider, I couldn't handle another restless night. So... I took a benadryl so I could get some sleep (how sad is that). I really wish I wasn't so afraid of them. That right there is why I could never live alone.

Today is the 26th. My Grandpa died 5 years ago today. I almost forgot... I really miss him and home. I want to be in Bismarck right now. I want to see my grandparents.

current song: The Time of My Life by David Cook

I can't believe another summer has ended, and everyone is back in school. Everyone but me that is. I really need to make up my mind about what I want to get my degree in. CVT? RT? Or a bachelors degree? The bachelors is sounding like a good idea... but what to get it in.... Grrr. This is always on my mind. It's driving me crazy!! Anyone have any ideas? What am I good at??!! I'm ok at a lot of things but not really great at anything.

Last Thursday I took off work to go down to Tampa with Nicole for a concert. It was a lot of fun! I met David Cook, got a picture with him, and I got his autograph! Hehe, I have such a big crush on that guy right now! He was very nice and just a goofy guy (his sharpie was up his nose in my pic). Haha. So then I got back home at about 1:30. Fortunately, Tropical Storm Fay was right over Gainesville, and I got off Friday too! Sleeping in was so nice!

It was great watching the Olympics and Michael Phelps! He was awesome! I'm kinda sad they're over, but now I'm getting to bed much earlier! Yay for sleep!

current song: Make This Go On Forever by Snow Patrol

I had a creepy spider dream this morning that woke me at 8:30. Then I started freaking out that I didn't set my alarm, and I was going to be late for work. Silly me. Thank goodness it's still the weekend. Work sucked big time on Friday, and I'm really not looking forward to going back.

Charissa, come back soon! I had a great time yesterday!!

Man, there are so many people that I want to get married (2 of them!). Why won't these guys just propose!?! To be in love... sigh... but right now I'm actually perfectly content being single... and alone...I only cry my self to sleep every other week. Haha, just kidding. I'm getting my romantic fix from old movies and just being excited for other people's relationships.

disappointed

current mood: disappointed

I'm once again trying to sort out this mess that is my life. I seriously had everything planned out, and I was ready to get started. I would buy a condo in August, start the CVT program in the fall, and then get my bachelors in vet technology.... but no. Now I'm trying to figure out what I should get my bachelors in, the CVT program is currently suspended until UF decides they have the money to pay for it (it's really not worth it otherwise), and the condos I can afford make me feel dirty. Yeah, life is grand. Plus, a coworker is driving me mental. You know the whole Ash is evil comment? That was from her.

current song: The Joke by Lifehouse

Last week was something crazy. On the 27th I started full time and started pet/house sitting for a doctor at work. He lives about 50 minutes outside of Gainesville in Keystone. I know, great time to have to start getting to work at 8 am. That weekend I didn't get any sleep because of all the animals. They like to eat at 5:30 in the morning and then don't let you go back to sleep for too long after that. And I couldn't really sleep anyway. By Monday I was dead.

Monday was the Travis concert in Orlando. It was absolutely amazing!! We were front row!!!!!!!!!! It was one of the best concerts I've ever been to. I caught a guitar pick that Andy threw into the audience, and two guys were going after it as well. Oh yeah. Oh, and we met Andy, Dougie, and Neil. That was so cool. I saw them walking around downtown Disney and went up to say hi. Ash was right; they really are the nicest guys in the world. So we left Orlando at 1 am, got back at 3, I drove Anya home, and then drove all the way back to Keystone. I crawled into bed at 4:30. Now this is all on top of a sleepless weekend. When I got up and hour and a half later I had a breakdown. I felt half dead.

Saturday afternoon my job was done, and that night Ash and I went to a Lifehouse concert in Tampa with a friend from work. That was also really cool. Lifehouse was opening for the Goo Goo Dolls, and that was a pretty good show too. Anyway, that was my crazy week. It was so cool, and not so much.
