Down to business

Today is going to be an interesting day. Matt called in sick... Derek called in sick... and Jamie didn't show up and we don't have her number to call her... I think she thinks she is 12:30-8:30pm today. Oh and John called in sick upstairs so Marina is upstairs by herself which means I have to call guest services and meeting services for runs and I get to unload the trucks by myself. while answering the phones. and getting the counter. and inbounding and putting the boxes away. wow what a day. IN OTHER NEWS... I put in an application for an apartment so I might have my own place soon.. but I am still checking out the roommate option because I would have more money then and I could meet some cool person to hang with... My main concern is that I have never been able to just be myself in a living situation... always have to be quiet for someone or my alarm wakes them up or I can't have people over because they will be using the living room etc. I want all that. I want to be able to put on music at 4:30am and dance around and sing while I am getting ready for the day. I want to be able to walk naked from my bathroom to my bedroom. I want to be able to do my own thing.. I guess if I found a roommate situation where the bathroom was connected to the bedroom and they didn't mind people over and the walls were not paper thin I would be happy. Well, times a wastin' on the moving thing so I had better decide fast. Thats all for now folks. =D

This weekend rocked!!!

I had Fri Sat off this week and I had sooo much fun. It was so cool. Thursday night was swing dancing and everyone was so into it that when the swing music went off and the club music came on everyone just started dancing and we had a blast. I drank some and I was just having a ball. Friday night was the house warming party at what I call the house of shag because of its wall to wall shag carpeting. They had a giant ice block that they made into a giant shot thing. Everyone was chanting my name to do the shot thing so I did it. It was cool... although my lip and chin got cold and wet. I think there is a picture of it out there somewhere. Saturday morning I had my hair appointment so now I am a red head again. pics on myspace.com soon. And Saturday night was my friends' 50th wedding anniversary. It was really neat. They renewed their vows and my friend Kyley (who happens to be their granddaughter) modeled Dottie's wedding dress because it fit her exactly. There was a slideshow of pictures of their life together and of the family and then Stardust (men's quartet) and Wildfire (my quartet) sang for everyone. It really was a lot of fun. SO that was my weekend. =D Oh, Happy Easter! I am at work and my mom is in Cali because tomorrow my sister gets out of federal prision and goes to a half way house and mom is driving her. Thats the other news in my life. Besides contest being this weekend. Oh and my bass's husband's sister died and so my bass will be gone and I won't see her until contest this weekend. Other news??? nah.. thats enough for this blog. =D

weekly update

This last week was interesting. Peter has been in Boston so I have not had to deal with that situation for a whole week. He got back last night and I will probably not see him until swing tomorrow. Meanwhile... it was St. Patricks Day and I was supposed to be drinking with my friend Kayla but she got sick so I ended up going to Corey's work for a bit and drinking there and then I went early to swing and Marc met me there so I could drink with somebody. Its not that I am a big drinker or anything... I just had it in the plans that for once I would get to do something cool for St. Patty's Day and since my plans all fell through I decided to make my own St. Patricks Day fun. Swing dancing on alcohol is fun... I might actually be better when I'm a bit tipsy. (I never got drunk that night) Well, after dancing I went and met up with my friend Adam at IN-N-OUT and then I crashed sooo hard. I could not believe how tired I was and it was only midnight. Thats what you get when you work mornings I guess. SO that was Thursday. I think I will do a daily accountance.
Fri- went and ate at Chance's house. Met Chance's gf Shelly, his two roomie's Troy and Steve, and his friend Chris. Then went to Scarey Larrys with a bunch of my swing dance friends for a birthday party. That was interesting. Ended up having this long conversation with Mark in the parking lot before going home.
Sat-went and got nails done with Chance and then went over to Chris's for some DDR. He has this awesome set up in his living room for DDR... its dedicated to DDR. He has the metal pads and everything. I also met two more of their friends and they didn't use eachother's names enough for me to remember them =(
Sun-worked.... went home and slept.
Mon-worked... quartet was coached by David. We made great progress that I hope we keep. Then I stayed there and talked to David for a while.
Tues-worked... hung out a little with the new guy at work and then went home to get ready for friends and family night. Friends and family night was low key.. but I thought it would be thats why I didn't really invite people til the last minute because I didn't want to make it out to be a big deal. Chris came to friends and family night... so did David (well he was with all the other people he was coaching this past weekend) Both of them went to afterglow too. Kevin was working at Friday's last night so I got to see him too (its been a while because I don't go to glow very much these days since I have to work so early) All in all it was fun. I really like David.. he is funny. Well, I guess there are more things I could say but I think I will keep this blog boring for now.

Well, this weekend was an interesting one... Peter and I broke up... then played frisbee in the park the next day... and that night I got drunk and broke down. My poor friends had to deal with a blubbering me for a few hours... but I did try to keep it away from the party by confining myself to a bathroom. Thank you Corey and Millie for being there, I appriciate that a lot. Even though Peter is being kinda distant with the way that he's dealing with me I appriciate that he is letting me talk it out while I am organizing it in my head so that I will be okay. Peter is one of those people where a possible relationship could have screwed up a great friendship. I thank him for his ability to see that my emotions and romantic nature are seperate from my general like of him and our friendship... which is currently being remodeled. Wow things certainly get more complicated as one gets older.
The next order of buisness is what to do next... get myself in gear I guess... decide what I am going to do next. I know I have to move. I know I have to buy a car. I know I want to visit one of my really good friends that actually know me... I need that for my soul. I need to get a computer. I need to set myself up for some serious change because it is in the air. I want to go back to kung fu. I want to get centered again. I want to visit with old friends. Oh! thats news... k this past weekend was my kf school's grand opening of their new building and I went and I saw the old student that I had not seen in 3 or 4 years. Brian Allen Heather Dawn Dalton Bobby it was sooo cool! I really miss those guys. Anyway, I am at work... nothing is happening but I would hate to get cut-off so I will say goodbye for now.

with or without class

http://snarkyspot.blogspot.com/ wanted to be able to go back to this blog... its great!

In other news... people keep saying silly things around me in class and I think they are funny so I think I will post them. Also I keep getting these ideas of things to discuss because they sound interesting so I think I may post those as well so that I can remember them later when certain people wanna argue their little hearts out. =D For me its a bunch of musings, for them it seems to be a test of wills or a much more organized philisophical debate.

Musings on Life

Why are their so few people I really connect with? People that I really like and can relate to. Conversations flow like water, no effort, and we always have a good time. I want more friends like that. A girl just joined my chorus. She is so much fun and I like her alot. I hope to take advantage of this friendship because she is one of the very few girls that I really like. I tend to favor boys socially cause girls are just too complicated and weird at times.

Lately I have been feeling kinda out of the loop socially. My group of friends tend to socialize past my bedtime (I work really early in the AM) and my boyfriend is always with them and I feel like I get left alone alot. The BF is a whole different story. If I didn't call him for two weeks, I wouldn't hear from him and he would be fine with that. He thinks thats how relationships should work... where you don't have to talk to that person everyday. Well, I think that would be easier to abide by if I thought he actually gave a damn about me. It can be really good some days.... but thats if everything has been on his terms. Blah I don't wanna talk about it right now.

So, I made a learning tape for my chorus (my quartet made it) and we checked my notes by listening to my part played by itself and looking at the music and now the bari section leader, the underequiped person who has my job, is saying that I am wrong in two places. And they announced it in front of the bari section without ever discussing it with me. SO thats how I found out. They are saying that the section has been singing these two parts wrong and they learned it off the tape so the tape is wrong. I asked my tenor about it and she said we were all tired so it could have slipped by. SO I am having someone look at it for me cause I wanna know for sure.

The chorus was singing great this weekend and then on Tuesday they were muscling it and driving it down so much I couldn't stand it and I blame it all on Warren warming them up because he turns everyone's sound dark. He describes things that work for the men but need to be explained differently for women or you are going to get a different result than you expected.

I made a new friend yesterday. His name is Steven and he is in my Anth 434 class. We wrote notes back and forth all class and then ate IN 'N OUT in my car while I "culturized" him. Thats the term I use for bombarding people with barbershop music to introduce the stuff to them. I also play some other a cappella stuff like doo wop and religious (fun god songs that acappella groups sing) so they can hear the difference.

I made a new friend last week in Bio Lab when I went to another lab to make up the one I missed the day before. We studied for the bio test we had that week and I discovered that my level of intellegence requirement had been severely raised since the last time I checked my stupidity tolerance level. Peter is way into Science and Math and all kinds of things and to sit there and havbe someone say they don't get science or they don't like it or its too hard or whatever just bumms me out. Especially when they don't offer any other signs of intelegent life. You have to be brilliant at something or you don't impress me at all.

Well, I have babbled on long enough... time to get back to work.
