Also...

I'm WAY behind on postings. I know. What else is new?

In the meantime (and in the spirit of being the total opposite of my friend †Brycrasch), PLEASE feel free to follow my facebook... for those of you in the know, I guess. I tend to update that a whole heck of a lot more.

Guess you can see where my loyalties lie, eh? (failure)

Will update... in time... as I can. Prom promise.

ARGH ALGEBRA!



What is with me finding joy in double meanings of words? To be continued...

Here it is: I am ABSOLUTELY OVER College Algebra... and it's only the third week of school. Why, must you ask? Well, does telling you that this is my FIFTH yes FIFTH attempt at taking this wretched class answer your question at all? I go to class, sort of get it, look over it, go home, bring up my homework, start off, work at it, get really freakin' confused and end up putting it off, try to finish it all last minute and finally end up SCREAMING at my poor computer (like it can do anything about it)! I'm just over it all... again... for the fifth time.

I'm a hospitality major. We're happy people. College Algebra does NOT make me happy.

In reference to the above, I have since learned "Algebra" is also the name of a female R&B singer, pictured above. Who's crazy enough to call themselves THAT?

To resolve in 2010


Maybe ride trains more? I don't know. I'm really enjoying this trip back to NYC from that New Year's get-together in NJ last night. Especially because it's giving me time to blog.

Anywho, I usually find myself making one, two or three resolutions every year as the calendar rolls back around to January 1st. Typically, my New Year's resolutions seem to be made up of:
  • A deep thought
  • Some tangible or practical statement
  • An off-the-wall comment that actually makes no sense at all
Last year, I had one simple resolution... "to better myself overall." I'm still not too sure what I completely meant by that (hence the whole "deep thought" theme), but what I think I was going for was to be "better" with my finances, at work, at school, in my friendships and in my relationships.

Well, seeing as I ended up buying a house, was late to work more than I would have wanted, withdrew from a few classes, wasn't the best with friends and certainly screwed up my fair share with some of the boys in my life... that resolution didn't work out so well.

For 2010, however, I'm shooting for three. I know, I know, if one got me nowhere, why am I even trying, at all?

Because I can. That's why.

So, for this exciting, even-numbered year, I'm going to touch on all three themes:
  • Find happiness, whatever that may be
  • Learn to play the piano
  • Just take a chance and go for it
I'm certainly happy with those taking me into this new year, so, perhaps, I've even knocked one out already.

And should I also resolve to blog some more? I'm sure that, if I did, all of you would be happy, as well.

HERE'S TO 2010!
(and has anyone ACTUALLY decided if we're calling it "twenty-ten" or "two-thousand ten" yet? I prefer the former, for the record.)

I didn't get a kiss on New Year's Day

Outside, sitting in rainy, 34 degree weather in Bridgeton, NJ, I find a calm coming over me from the world. But, even though no kiss was in sight, I'm still going to make 2010 the BEST year ever. I can feel it.

Now, where's my flight back to the comfy FL weather? I'm going inside now.

Happy New Year, everyone!
