27 August, 2011

Well if that wasn't an EPIC FAIL... Idk what is.

     Talked to my university... and guess what....the chances of me going back in October are pretty much wishful thinking. They waited until the last damn week in August to tell me that the Associate Degree program no longer exists (What I was going there for) and that I can only take the Certificate program courses now. On top of that the certification for the school to teach said courses has yet to come through and it looks like that won't come through until January. v.v  Well fuck me sideways! >.< What am I supposed to do for another five months?!?!? I guess the hunt for a job continues.
    As if I don't have enough on my plate right now, this has to be the worst possible timing for this. The one thing I was really looking forward to falls through. Great! X.x I'm seriously considering just going off on a rant right now, but I don't think anyone would want to read what I truly have to say at the moment. So perhaps it's best if I go and be pissed off elsewhere. Yep, gonna go do that... right about.. now.  

I'm a soulless child of the devil !?

     Yep, title says it all... I am a soulless child of the devil. Why do you ask? Not a friggin' clue. This is what an old woman at the grocery store said as she passed me. "Redheads, the soulless children of the devil!" *begins to cross herself repeatedly as if to ward off my "evil"*; all I could think of to do at that point was reply "Why yes ma'am, I am a soulless child of the devil. And guess what? He's sent me for you." *smirks and walks on leaving the superstitious woman to do her grocery shopping in utter fear*  Yeah, that was probably really terrible of me, but I'm not soulless... am I? O.o Sad thing is this is not the first time this has happened to me, actually this is occurrence # 2 in the past month. X.x I feel so unloved, stupid people and their stupid fear of redheads. Q.Q Meh, shouldn't bother me... to hell with 'em, I know plenty of people who don't care that I may be a soulless ginger. xD 
    Have any of you ever seen a five year old chase a chicken? Ok, how about twenty-seven chickens chasing a five year old? One of the funniest things you'll ever see, little kid came over with her parents to buy eggs. Of course being five, she wanted to see where the eggs came from. Into the chicken run we went, was fine until we realised that the girl was holding cookies in her hands. Umm... chickens like food, and ours really like sweets. So I think you can venture a guess what happened next, little girl starts walking around the run cookies in hand and of course all twenty-seven chickens just have to follow her hoping to get a crumb of said cookies.  She starts running around because all the chickens are following her, this just makes the chickens run after her. In the end, let's just say the chickens won out and got the cookies. And I don't think the girl wants to go into the chicken run ever again. xD 
     And with that I think I may go read now *goes off and does so* because yeah... I've nothing better to do. (Aka no one is online. x.x)

Why I shouldn't be allowed near books. o.o

Alright since I have nothing better to do.... wait for it.... waaaiittt for it... Summer reading list. xD You thought it was another quiz didn't you? Silly you, this time I may be bored, but I thought I'd give you a break from the random quizzes.

2. The Island of Doctor Moreau
3. The Invisible Man
4. The Lost Crown
5. Lady Chatterly's Lover

9. Hush, Hush
10. Persuasion

But please remember I've been on holiday from uni since the second week of May; I've had a long summer and I had to fill it with something other than IMVU, so I chose incessant reading and writing. Lol.

23 August, 2011

Gingers & War O. o

        Ok so is it bad that when my family gets together and has squirt guns this is what happens?
      My father has a squirt gun and is running around like a madman yelling incoherently as he attacks everyone. The little kids just kinda stare blankly at him, not sure what to do because he has a squirt gun and they have wimpy little water-balloons. <---- Someone needs to teach them to fight back. Job for myself in the near future? I think so. Then there is my brother who grabs the nearest spray bottle, as all hell breaks loose. And then there is me watching as mayhem ensues. Me being who I am, I grab the nearest water hose with a "Bitch, I will waste your ass!" as I douse all of them. Needless to say everyone including myself ends up soaked in the end. Also is it sad that this happens like every two to three days during the summer?
Gotta love the random things we do, would be even more fun if there were more people my age rather than a gaggle of little kids. But hey, it's still fun. And speaking of little kids, nice segway I know. ^^ But speaking of little kids, friend of the family has a little boy and guess what? C'mon guess. Ok, fine I'll tell you.... he's a ginger! I am not alone! xD Here's the thing though, this particular child HATES his gingery awesomeness. >.< So I took it upon myself to make him hate it less, didn't take much because he clung to me simply because I too am a ginger.
     Poor little kid is picked on relentlessly picked on at school for his hair colour. So I explain to him that only 2% of the world's population has naturally red hair, and that in about 150 yrs or so scientists say that all of those redheads will basically disappear. He looks at me and says "So we're an endangered species?", I couldn't help but smile at that and say yes, makes you special. ^.^ I went on to say how when I was growing up I was the only person in any school I went to with red hair and it's curly on top of that. I said that on more than one occasion that I told my mother I was going to dye my hair brown or black and straighten it. I even remember telling my mother to just cut my hair once when it got so bad. <---- Still wonder why I ever considered cutting it tbh. After my little explanation he felt quite a bit more confident about his red hair, he wasn't so self-conscious about it. Gotta love being able to help someone, especially someone as cute as little Evan.
     And now that I'm done rambling on about seemingly unimportant crap I'm gonna go lest I continue. ^^

World Class Menagerie

     Spent the day at the zoo with the family. Was quite fun, save for the sun beating down and no cloud cover whatsoever. Overall was a good day though, usually is when we get away from the house. And here is where I show off the awesome pics I took (yes, someone left me alone with camera xD ).

 Yes, mum really is that short (I may be short, but she's even shorter ^^) . The polar bear is almost but not quite two of her stacked tall.
 The Rose Garden at our zoo is amazing, so I had to get some pics of those. Along with Bismarck the Turtle (sorry to those who don't get it). And of course the awesome fountain on your way out of the zoo.

 Lemurs and Hibiscus... yeah those go together. One ungodly cute, and the other utterly gorgeous.

 And then of course because certain members of my family are well... SPECIAL. Here ya go, proof of it. Josh in the pic on the right and then my father in the robin's nest. Just gonna put it out there that when he go in the robin's nest he decided to pretend to be one. Then wouldn't let any little kids get in it, kept them all waiting for like five minutes while he pretended to be a robin.
     So yeah, that was our family outing.... went rather well if I do say so myself. Heck the entire day was a good day, I don't think I've had one of those is a long time. Also just random thought, what would you all think if I worked at a funeral home? Ponder that for a bit. Yeah, I see that going well... tis why I'm applying to work at one. ^^

      I can safely assume that no one really reads this, so I'm gonna let off some steam and rant. Not that I blame ya for not reading it, it's not terribly interesting; though you have to admit that I talk quite a bit here and I guess that sorta makes up for my epic silence outside of the blog. <--- Not at all.   I know I'm too quiet, I get that... but do I even attempt to fix that? Not really.  >.< Seriously something I need to work on because it truly pisses off people. I hate pissing people off, I really do... especially when it's someone I really care about. *sigh* Really have to work on that. 
     Next thing I'm gonna go on about that I really need to get off my chest. Remember in a previous blog when I mentioned we'd talk about addiction in another discussion (refer to the blog from 7 May, 2011 if you’ve no idea what I’m talking about) Yeah, this would be that discussion, no time like the present. And before you get the wrong idea, no I don't have an addiction (not a major one). Sadly though due to recent events we've slowly come to realise that my mother is addicted to painkillers. I think deep down we all knew it, but when she started passing out on the steps, at the table or other random places and would forget the date, where she was, or who she was talking to... we were completely sure. I know I shouldn't post it here, but atm it's the only place I can; the people I would normally talk to have kinda gone poof. v.v
     I don't know how to react to this, I mean I love my mother. Don't get me wrong I love her with all my heart, but how does one go about reacting to a parent having an addiction? I mean I could deny she has a problem, but what good would that be? Umm, it wouldn't do any good, I know that; but it also doesn't help that no other family members seem to believe she has a problem (even those who have seen it first hand ffs). Hell, she can't/ won't admit she has a problem either, which is of course not unheard of with addicts. But if she can't admit she has a problem how is anyone supposed to help? *head-desk* I wish someone would just f*ckin' tell me what I need to do to fix this. 
     However, this whole thing has made me decide to not take pain killers, unless absolutely necessary. I don't want to end up doing what my mother has done. Starting out on low dose / low strength painkillers and moving up the totem pole as it were. Like I said, I love my mother, I respect her and look up to her; she's a strong woman, but this makes it difficult to see that strength... it's almost like she's completely given up. I want my old mum back, the one who could go all day in the garden and still have the energy to go fishing after; the one who no matter what you did cared to listen to what happened. I don't want the mum that goes off on people when she hasn't been able to basically drug herself into a stupor because she had to work. 
     Am I wrong for wanting that? I feel like such a horrible daughter for wanting that and not being able to help her. I feel utterly useless when it comes to this. I should be able to f*cking help her and I can't. >.<  I don't want to lose her forever, but if she keeps it up that's what's going to happen. If she doesn't end up killing herself with the drugs, she'll end up losing the people she loves most. Again I feel like a horrid daughter for even thinking that way. Hell, I feel horrid for having to unload on all of you, and well for posting this. I probably shouldn't have, but I needed to vent somewhere... and this was the most logical place. 
     But now you know part of why I disappeared there for a bit. It was too much stress for me to deal with and just felt like an utter failure for not being able to help my own mother. And I can't say that this has really made me feel any better, but it did help some to make it hurt less I suppose. But I think that is enough of me going off on all of you with my problems, so I shall end it here. <---- Kinda regret posting this already.

     Thanks lovelies for just listening and being there. Xxxxx

Evoking Visions of My Favourite Casserole.... eheheh ^-^; ..wtf?

     I can't say I have much to talk about because that would be lying and well I'm not gonna do that. Much to my dismay, I haven't been up to much of anything lately. I'd rather be busy than stuck doing nothing. Meh, I'll get over it I suppose. But spawned from my boredom is this terrible video/ song, those of you who know the movie "The Silence of the Lambs" will more than likely appreciate this.


     Terrible I know, but also rather amusing, right? Or is that just me? Yeah, probably just me then, lol. This is why I shouldn't be allowed to have internet sometimes. But then again I'd probably go nuts without it. Also must share due to my lovely obsession with Peeps.
 Peeps Sushi!!! xD 
     Yesh, I know random, but epic you must admit. 
       Oh, so I went swimming again.... found out I'm no good at attempting to surf board. But then again I was in a pool and not in any actual waves, so that there in lies my problem I suppose. Go ahead and make fun of me, you know you want to. Though we all can admit that it's nowhere near as funny as my falling in the river or the catfish incident. ^-^;
     Random side note then I'm gonna go poof. 3 Doors Down is coming to Toledo!!!!!! Guess who's going to said concert?!?! *points to self* Yep, this girl. ^.^ So excited!! And now I'm gonna go. 
Luvvles you all. Toodles. Xxxxxx
