Both grandfathers passed away this year.
You know how they say bad things happen in three? Well, I'm waiting.
Then again, modern societies mourn over deaths rather than celebrate.

So sick... my nephew is bringing the elementary school cooties home.
Next thing, I'll probably have lice. I would, then, be forced to strangle him.

The grandfather has a few days to live, doctor says he's going fast. I'm trying my best not to think about it.

2009 sucks. Lost both of my grandparents... not even within a month.

"I laugh at your Macbook. You know Apple actually HATES its consumers and sees them as giant bags of money? I resignedly realized this when iTunes 5 was released, which instantly kills any 1st generation iPod that is synced. not a bug, either: Apple just grins at anyone who bemoans their fate. Anyway, it's not out of the realm of possibility that your Macbook sabotaged ITSELF."
(Message from a new friend)

Yes, but I loooove the minimalistic and very clean feel of the interface. Microsoft makes me want to violently rip out my eyes because of the gradients, bulky toolbars, and it's favoritism to right sides... If I ever purchased one, it would be for World of Warcraft reasons.

I'll be getting a MacBook Pro for Christmas because, yet again, something needs to be replaced on my MacBook-- this time the screen. In order for it to work, it either needs to be at the correct angle (that is quite awkward), or to be shaken frequently. If I were to have my screen replaced, then I would have basically had everything replaced... not to mention, the poor design is chipping away at the laptop's front again -_- Why keep forking out the money for the cheapest model, you know? May as well go with something nice... and with back-lights on the keys. Sheesh.

In other quick news... Off to the hospital to visit my grandfather tomorrow. Metastatic cancer (so far: brain, lung, bone, and colon), internal bleeding, etc. It's just sad... especially because I watched my other grandfather die in pain last month :/ It's horrible, but the semi-living one is my favorite. We are most alike in too many ways.

I wuv spending time with Zack at his apartment in College Park :3
As of the current, he is in class and I'm finding ways to keep myself enetertained until 12.

I heart Zack . I love University of Maryland, too-- Can't wait to transfer here and join the marching band !! I need to start checking prices of mellophones... I may have to sell my French Horn in order to purchase it :/

I've been running a lot, lately. I can occasionally catch some differences in my legs and bottom when I'm lounging around. When I take Bruno out for walks, we can run... and for much longer distances. Yay! How did this begin?-- Well, I have always been told that I have the body of a runner.

I'm off-- perhaps I will harvest some crops in FarmVille... since Zack doesn't have WoW :(

My parents are going crazy over the amount of money they're making.
I wish things were back to the way they were without this stupid company :(

I'll be tested for Diabetes whenever I end up scheduling an appointment at the Hospital this week. My parents tried (twice) with a home kit to check my blood sugar, but I effing passed out.

I've been diagnosed pre-diabetic numerous times, and I wouldn't be surprised if it finally caught up.

OMFG. It's been so long that I nearly forgot my username.
This must not happen again.

Since the last time I posted, I have quit my job from hell. Praise the sweet baby Jesus.

Currently putting together some thoughts for an appointment with my advisor tomorrow... that I am, in fact, leaving St. Mary's College to pursue an education elsewhere (not sure yet-- still waiting to hear back from a few colleges... some in NH ;P). Definitely not happy there, at all.

In other news, I still need to quit smoking, but it is thusfar the best weight-control method.

And I can't stop singing songs from 'My Fair Lady'... Why can't the English teach their children how to speak?

Sorry it's been a long while since my last update...
I work full-time! And as of two days ago, I'm also attending my Junior year of college full-time.

All of the limited spaces in my schedule available for studying will get my lazy ass on the roll-- when I have 5 hours of nothing, I blow it.

So today wasn't in my favor... Was an hour late to my first class (Chemistry) due to an accident on the highway, burnt my arm on a straight-iron, and waited around for 2 hours for a class that never occurred. Boo.

In other news, I still <3 my job. And I love my English class :3

So, y'know how I had my first day of work at Woodburns yesterday? My drawer showed up $83 short. In all actuality it really wasn't MY drawer, but the lady who was training me. This woman, mind you, complains to customers about her personal problems and work-related problems (saying how she believes she's being replaced, soon to be fired, pushing her to quit, etc.). This woman blamed me for stealing the from the register. Then this piece of trash (sorry for the lousy description) proceeded to prance around the store stating to customers and other employees, "You better put that back before YOU get caught stealing!"

What... the hell?

I felt so puny after the events, screwing up and panicking while preparing coffee drinks. I tried to help myself by repeating, "Be a Vulcan," but it didn't work for but a few moments.

If I even stole the odd amount of $83, then why did I sit in my car during lunch starving?

And why would I even do something like that? I've never had a history of stealing from ANY work establishment, nor in any day of my life. Why would I want a criminal-like record if I have goals I wish to achieve-- I'm in college for God's sake. And why would I have stolen from a register on my first day? And what the fuck would I be doing with $86? Getting my nails done? I think not.

I'm extremely bothered and disappointed in the store's employee choice.
I want to quit and run away so badly.
Was it a sign when my neighbor, Dana, brought over a business card and asked me to apply to her company today?
