Thursday I took the bus.  I'm not a bus person. I would be if the bus routes were better in my city but they suck. its like an hour long bus ride to get anywhere. I don't have that much time to waste everyday. What makes it so long is because I have to wait for my transfer down town and they are about 20 min apart. A girl came up to me and asked me if I knew when the #4 came back. Hell if I know. I didn't even know if my bus had came and gone yet . I'm always confused. I told her I didn't know, but luckely her bus pulled up at the same time. She was very nice. Yesterday I got my friend to pick me up. He got laid off a while back and now he's working at mcdonald's . Its not much money so I told him i'd give him $5 if he picked me up. No bus for me that day!

Last night we went out drinking with some of Jon's coworkers. Had a few drinks at the bar. but I was really buzzing on the weed we had smoked earlier. I started thinking of all this random shit. I really need to start carrying a notepad around when I get high. seriously. Anyways it was kareoke night at the bar we were at. Really odd crowd too. People were singing all these country songs which I hate. Then they called up this one girl that finally sang a song I like.. Then i looked at her a little closely and I realized it was the same girl from the bus stop!!!!

Today is my first day of work in over a month. I have been off work since Jan 2nd because I broke my ankle. I believe I was given way more time off than needed for the type of work I due ( which does not require me walking or standing up) but who am I to complain :P. It feels like the first day of school after a long summer. My boyfriend got a new job while I was off and his shifts are 10-6. My shift is 8-4. If I can't get it changed, I'm going to have to take a bus. I don't mind taking the bus.. except that I'm going to need to take a transfer bus to my place and It will be over an hour bus ride, whereas by car, it only takes about 10 minutes to get to my work. If I end up having to take the bus, atleast I'll be able to catch up on some reading. I have so many books I need to read and I can't seem to find much time to do it.

In other news, I've decided to try to become vegetarian. I read somewhere that a meat eater on a bicycle produces more CO2 then a vegetarian driving a Hummer.... as in,  the whole process of raising the animals for meat causes a lot of CO2. If this is true, then I want to do my part in helping the environment. I also want to do my parts in animal rights.Plus, I'd save on cost. Have you seen the price of meat? SHIT! I already don't eat processed meats, and I don't eat that much meat to begin with, so I think I can do this! And lastly I'll be more healthy!

so glad its Sunday, although everyday has been feeling like Sunday since January 2nd. But I feel like I don't need to do anything today and I can just relax.

I had a dream last night that I was at the grocery store picking up toilet paper and there was a new brand that had Iris' picture on it. it looked EXACTLY like one of the pictures I have of her which is why I knew. I called up the company and complained that I wanted money for them using her picture. Iris was owed royalties! The company said I had to talk to their lawyer and I got angry cause it always has to be done through lawyers of course. so I said " Why spend money on your lawyer when you know I'm going to win. Why not pay me what I want? I'm sure it'll be less than what you'll have to pay your lawyer anyways". Then the lady asked me how much I wanted, so I said $60,000. " Done", she said, "Don't ever speak of this to ANYONE". So I guess that was like pennies to them but I didn't want a huge amount. I just wanted enough to clear my car debt and student loans and have enough left over to enjoy. 
 

Man I wish my dreams would come true! 2 nights ago, I dreamt I went to a car dealership that was having a huge special celebration and they were giving away a car and I won it! Imagine!

Anyways, I need to go do some tidying up. I want to take some pictures of my place and post them on
ourapartments  .I've been a lurker for almost a year and I never posted :(. So that's today's goal! Then tonight, We're having pizza from scratch and wine with Dan and Tina.

Had the weirdest dream last night.

I was going to this island with a bunch of people. A lot of these people were from leadership camps I attended back in High School when I was in the student unions. I don't know any of them that well and I never stayed it touch with them. I can't even remember their names. just their faces.  We were a good bunch, maybe about 30-50. Jonathan was also there.

Then all of a sudden one guy freaked ot and pulled out a gun and started shooting everyone! I think his name was Dominic in the dream but he isn't someone I knew in real life. He shot every single person except me and Jon and like 2 more people. I was close to him watching him kill everyone and I was scared but it never accured to me to run off. I just stood there watching him, and for some reason he was oblivious to the fact that I was standing right next to him. I looked down and i saw a riffle on the floor. when I picked it up, it felt more like a toy gun than a real gun ( maybe cause I never felt a real one? hehe) I point it at his face and then he noticed me. He said " go head! shoot me! " so I hit the trigger but there was no bullets. He started laughing and was just about to put his gun up at me and then I took the gun and stabbed him in the throat. Then i stabbed him in the heart and killed hiim. I don't know how I managed to do that with a riffle lol but it worked.

The last guy he had shot was next to me and by chance he was still alived. the gunman had shot him in the chest but not in his heart. We had to live the island very quickly, But we had gone there on a Ferrie and the next one was only coming again the next day. We found an emergency blow up boat, which looked more like those blow up kiddie swinning pools, the rectangular shapped ones. we loaded everyone a board and set sail. Thats when I woke up.

I can't find my scale. I think it was left behind in the move by accident. I am pretty bummed. I feel like I lost some weight and I wanted to check. Oh well I guess I'll have to wait longer.

I got my stitches out today :D
here's some pics of the ankle.
Right after surgery



MMM STAPLES!
now some pics from Today, after they removed the staples.


the lines are actually from the bandage wrap that was on too tight. Jon painted my toenails the night before, He's so sweet :)

well I'm tired. sleepy timez!

So, if anyone even reads this, they may be wondering why I'm doing a Post? since I never stay up to date. Well on New Years Eve we all got pretty trashed and I fell and broke my ankle. I had to have surgery and the doc put me on Short Term Disability of 8 weeks! I think that's rediculous since I'll be able to start walking again tomorrow once the stitches come out. and I'll have 7 weeks left of "recovery". hehehe
So I'm pretty much limited to where I go now Since I have to use crutches or a wheelchair to get around. It's not that I'm embarrassed. Not at all. its just inconvenient.

So these were my new years resolution for 2008 .. I think?.. maybe they were 2007's .. anyways I'm not very good staying up do date with this Journal so lets just see what I've done so far:


1-Lose the 25lbs I gained during the year + the 20 I wanted to lose already
UPDATE: I lost EXACTLY 25lbs! atleast its a start right?
2- Get out of my massive debt
UPDATE: not out of debt yet! but its definitaly a lot smaller than it was!
3- Sell my house, yes i own a house , woopie x|
UPDATE: House is sold! although I didn't get nearly what I wanted for it.
4- adopt a penguin. www.seabirds.org
UPDATE: DONE! His name is Rinaldo! cutest thing ever! his woman layed 2 eggs and they should be hatching very soon!
5- Volunteer, you can't put a price on helping others.
UPDATE: I've done some at the campus by helping the student union decorate and prepare some activities. But I am not satified with that. I should have done more. I know I could have!
6- Learn to speak spanish better, so I can offically say I am Trilingual
UPDATE: Mi espanol todavia necesita mucho trabajo!
7- Save a $1000
UPDATE: Done! more than 1000, but it had since had to be used toward school. At least I put it to good use


So, it seems I've done pretty good!
I'll put up a new New Years Resolution in the next few days... and we'll see how that goes.


Unicorns


When I was about 4 or 5 years old, I had a dream. Now, over 15 years later, I still remember it like it was yesteday.

I was staying at my grandmother's house for the night when I had the dream. She would let me sleep in her bed, and she would sleep on the couch. She would rarely sleep in her bed for some reason.

In my dream, I woke up and the house was filled with smoke. I yelled for my grandmother in fear, but she could not get to me because the fire was blocking the entrance to the bedroom. I just sat in the bed and yelled HELP at the top of my lungs. That's all I could do. I was so scared, its like I was paralized. Then, out of the smoke, came this white unicorn. It was about the size of a pony ( at that time, that was big enough for me ) He didn't speak or make any sounds, but I knew he wanted me to jump on his back. So I got out of bed and hopped on him, and he took me out of the bedroom. away from the fire, I was about to leave the house with him but then I woke up.

For some reason I have never forgot this dream. :)
