All Those Damn Doors

Today while avoiding homework I was perusing facebook looking for some new juicy gossip to enthrall myself with. Just kidding, facebook is continuously losing its ability to capture my attention. Anyway, I came across this quote that one of my friends posted:

"life is full of doors.... some open, some close, some you are shoved through, others you can never find the key...."

My immediate thought was, "Yeah, and then you get those goddamn revolving doors that open, close, open, close, open, close so that you're never permanently in the room yet you're never permanently out."

Generations of Love and Rebellion

I freaking love my grandparents and their extremely dysfunctional yet incredibly loving (and entertaining) dynamic!

"We received your email, but true to form, I hit the wrong button and now I can't find it.
Will you please re-send it? I'd like to send you a care package, but your grandmom won't let me near the oven with the oxygen. I'll have to wait until she goes shopping for a couple of hours.


Unique and Incredible

How does one find out they have this talent?

SHANNON: Apparently atmospheric and oceanic sciences is a very difficult class and I was unaware...
JOELLE: I'm considering dropping this whole "school" thing as well. We can be bums together.
SHANNON: Let's drop out and get better jobs like ice road truckers or king crab fishermen.
JOELLE: And be constantly surrounded by men.
SHANNON: Foolproof!

"I pop it, and lock it, and break, and....oh yeah, I crump"

The kid has more talent at age 4 than I will ever achieve in my entire lifetime.

Smiley Face French Fries

I finally got that job I needed. Babysitting. Aka playing in a park with the occasional Play-Doh break. It's only two times a week; sometimes three. Nothing big, but I figure that the extra cash I'll have from this semester alone will be enough to pay for a decent ski trip this winter. So all-in-all: TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!!

I've come to the intriguing and epiphany-like conclusion that being busy is the key to my success. I need to be busy. Literally, NEED. Being busy forces me to prioritize. Prioritizing forces me to be productive. Productivity forces me to succeed. Like I said, business is the key to my success.

This all came about around hour 4 in the library. I had done four solid hours of homework; something that I don't believe has been accomplished since finals last year. I actually STUDIED. You know, not doing busy work or writing an essay, but reviewing information in order to commit it to memory. I hate studying.

The point is, if I keep this up I have a feeling I can kick some major ass GPA-wise. There are some setbacks, however, as there are with everything in life. Tonight my room mate and I got kicked out of two libraries because they were closing. Two. The first one closed at 8:00, so we went to another one, which closed at 11:45.

Today's Saturday, by the way.

Saturday night, at 11:45, we were in a library complaining that they were closing. That's....10 hours in a library. On a Saturday. This better pay off.

Good news, though. We finally bought batteries for our TV remote. This means that we no longer have to get up and physically plug the TV into the wall in order to turn it on. The power button on the TV is broken. Our remote had no batteries. It was a sad existence. Plus, this new remote glows in the dark. Double bonus! Oh yeah, and we made smiley face french fries.
