Ten on Wednesday

I'm fashionably late! 

1. I have been so freaking busy with my damn writing class. I'm so done with this fucking project.

2. I'm going to be a freaking genie-ass about breast cancer and heart disease when I'm done with this research paper. 

3. I scored another A on my Biology exam. Hallelujer! 

4. With all the crazy stuff going on, this keeps me laughing. 

5. I absolutely love Postcrossing because I get to travel the world without buying the expensive airfare. I love getting neat little tidbits about where people live. I'm starting to get a nice pile going on.

6. I've been trying to find things to snack on with Paleo and something to curb my chocolate cravings, so I tried paleo-friendly pudding. Next time, I'm using something other than coconut milk. 

7. I'd kill for a Diet Coke right now. 

8. I can't believe I have a little over 30 days before I can get my research paper written. I'm not ready and my attention deficit is kicking in all the time. 

9. I can't wait until it starts to warm up. Supposedly it's going to the in the 50's this weekend. Of course I have to work, but at least it'll be warm! 

10. I found out that I have to take classes this summer in order to apply for nursing school on time. There goes my summer!!

I am just so sick to my stomach.
Not the kind of sick to the stomach where you can take medicine to fix...
Today I was out running around with my SiL and my nephew. I went to grab something out of my pocket and it snagged on the inside. I thought that was weird so I looked to see what was causing the snagging.
That's when I saw it.

The diamond had fallen out of my ring!!!
I am completely devastated.
I felt awful when I told Hubster.
He told me it would be ok, that he would eventually get me a new one, but I still feel bad.
My finger feels so naked with just the band.

Ten on Tuesday

1. School starts today. Spring break was not long enough. At.All.

2. I did spend my Spring Break wisely. I made flashcards for my Biology class so I could study while at work.

3. Nothing like getting hit by another hotel shuttle driver going 70 mph who pulls out in front of you while you're on the way to the airport to pick up hotel guests.

4. Someone clearly did not like seeing her breasteses.

5. You definitely need to learn to clean a little better if this happens. If you have some problems reaching back there and doing it yourself, get someone to help you. 

6. I can't believe some co-workers of mine still have a job after the dumb shit they are pulling. I tried to call out of my shift due to a huge migraine and having the shits, but my manager said no, not unless I could find someone to replace me. Well no one would, so I had to go in. Other people get to do whatever the hell they want and not come in, yet they still get full time hours.

7. I never noticed this until I got bored waiting for the elevator while doing my hourly walks around the hallways, but someone needs to get a refund and change the signs next to the elevator.

8. I can't believe I have eight more weeks of school before my first semester is over. Unbelievable. 

9. I cheated on my diet the other day because doesn't hurt to slip every once in awhile! But I'm regretting it. My bowels have been hating me. I will not be eating any bread for a very long time. 

10. I'm ready for Spring. It snowed again yesterday and I'm about fed up with all this wintery shit. BRING ON THE HOT TEMPS AGAIN! 

Happy Tuesday everyone :)

This is how I have felt at work for the past few weekends I have worked.
I work for a hotel in my town.
It is very popular because we're close to the Mall of America.
It's not a five star hotel, but we have great guests that come in regularly and stay for business and quite a few that stay with us multiple times a year for pleasure trips to the Twin Cities.
Our only downfall?
We accept cash payers.
We always get walk-ins every weekend that are just disgusting and treat you like complete shit.
Usually people that only know how to call other people names like "bitch", "ho", or "dumb bitch" when they address you.
We also get the scammers that try to come in and stay multiple days, then claim they have been sleeping with bed bugs and demand a refund after they blew all of their money on a hotel and booze.
These are also the same people that want the shuttle to take them everywhere around town and even into the cities. When you explain to them we only take people to the mall and to the airport, they stand and argue and call you names in front of a full lobby of people and you're left standing there behind the desk trying to keep your cool before knock the shit out of someone.
I cannot people like that!!!!
This weekend has really tested my nerves.
I almost went off on quite a few people that have come into my lobby.
I just keep remembering....I cannot afford to go to jail this week!

Hope everyone's having a great weekend. I will once today is over and I have the next four days off of work!
School is back in session on Tuesday and I have to get a bunch of studying done.

Random Thursday

Oh my favorite.
I have a lot so bare with me.

1. When people chew like a freaking cow. Hello?! Have you looked in the mirror while you eat? It's disgusting.

2. People who smack when they eat. OMFG LEARN TO CHEW!

3. When someone drags their feet. We're not cavemen people. Unless you have an old 'nam injury, a stroke, or a bum leg, pick up your feet when walk and wear lighter shoes.

4. People who try to one-up you all the time. Just shut up and let me tell you my story.

5. People who play the race card when they don't get their way. No it's not because I'm white, it's because you're a moron.

6. When someone is so needy, but when you need something, they disappear.

7. The words "um", "like", "yeah, totally", and "ya'know?" multiple times in a sentence. You sound studid.

8. AT&T's service. I live in Minneapolis, MN and the nearest 4G tower is in Mankato or Minnetonka. Are you serious????? I lived in BFE Alaska and had 4G service.

9. The fact that my mail lady thinks she has the right to cut across my lawn to deliver the mail. I have a perfectly plowed, shoveled, and ice-free driveway, yet you leave me nasty letters in the mail about how I need to shovel a path for you across my lawn.

10. The neighbors that let their dog poop in my yard and walk on by...right in front of me.

I better stop because I could go on forever!

Happy Thursday everyone!

Another Tuesday!

1. I picked up a few shifts this week so my bank account would get off my back. Now I have only three days left of my Spring Break in which I don't have to leave my house.

2. Even though it's my Spring Break, I still have to work on my analytically 22 page research paper. Oh fucking joy!

3. It's true. Ha!

4. I'm happy to announce that I'm still alive after starting the Paleo diet. I'm actually really enjoying everything that I get to eat. Don't get me wrong, I will still slice your throat to steal the cheeseburger you eat in front of me, but other than that, I'm doing great!

5. I took my first midterm exam in Intercultural Communications. It's a two-part so I have to wait to get my final grade. Probably never because the professor still hasn't graded two journal assignments, our group presentation, and a few extra credit assignments. The first part I got an 86%. I know it's good, but I'm not thrilled. Hopefully I did really well on the second part to bump up my grade to an A.

6. I was craving something sweet really bad last night, so I made four batches of cookies so I could linger in the smell of fresh baked goodies. I didn't eat them though! Just enjoyed the smell. I know, I'm a freak.

7. I find this so hilarious because Cosmo looks at me with the gross foamy drool whenever I'm eating something tasty. I almost want to smack him away because he looks rabid and might eat off my arm if I don't give him a bite.

8. Word. I'm sure everyone wants this to happen. Hell, I'll even set the mood and leave the room for a bit.

9. I say this every day while I'm at work. Some guests I just want to the knock the hell out and drag them out of the hotel. Total trash.

10. Awhile ago I entered a contest over at Linny's Vault and won a CD from Madeleine Peyroux. You must get your hands on this. Her voice is killer.

Six Word Saturdy

Happy I survived my first week.

I decided to go Paleo as a last ditch effort. 
I haven't found a healthy relationship with food any other way and really wanted to cut out certain things to help with my PCOS. 
I have survived an entire week, already feeling a little better, and enjoying the food I get to eat. 
I am missing the Diet Coke, glasses of milk, and my cheese, but maybe we'll see each other again the far, far, far future I hope. 
I've already started losing some water weight and I'm not feeling so bloated. 
I feel different about dieting this time. 
I've been wanting to change for awhile. 
It started with wanting to stop smoking. That was my biggest challenge so far. 
Now that I've been successful four months and haven't thought about lighting up again, I feel as though I can conquer anything! 

Happy Six Week Saturday!

Spring Break!

After my 9am Biology Lab this morning, I will officially be on Spring Break!!!

How the hell did that happen?!
I have survived half the semester with minimal migraines.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to FULLY enjoy my Spring Break until Monday since I have to work all weekend. That's okay though because that means there's four days ahead of me that I can enjoy completely and catch up on sleep.

Happy Spring Break to me!

Random Thursday

I didn't have very many fabulous childhood memories. 
We didn't visit any parks or Disney World or anything of the such, but there's one memory that sticks out. 

Meet Wonder Woman and Slimer, aka, my little brother and me. 
I think I was seven or eight and my little brother was five or six. This was one of the best Halloween's ever! 
I was living in this small town called Yellow Springs, Ohio and my mom was quite the crafty person. She made both of these costumes with bare hands and was so proud of it. 
I remember her smiling after every one complimented on our costumes. 
I also remember we got a ton of candy that year. 
Oh to be nine again!!

I've been feeling the need to change for awhile and I've had some pretty good luck with it.
In November, I stopped smoking. Granted I tried to start up again a week later, but after choking to death and almost slamming my truck into a guard rail from the coughing spasm, I knew I wasn't going to smoke anymore.
Well I'm very proud of myself for not smoking anymore, but what have I turned to?
With that, I've gained eight pounds. Eight pounds might not be a lot, but when you're already overweight, that's eight more pounds you have to try to lose.

PCOS has made it extremely hard for me to lose weight.
I work out, and eat well and I don't see a change so I start eating again and stop working out.
Well since I've had so much success with not smoking, I figured I'd try the next step again.
To lose weight.

I've done a lot of research regarding diets that work well with women who suffer from PCOS and after looking at them all, I've decided to go Paleo.

What is the Paleo Diet? (according to Wiki)
The paleolithic diet (abbreviated paleo diet or paleodiet), also popularly referred to as the caveman dietStone Age dietand hunter-gatherer diet, is a modern nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various hominid species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic era—a period of about 2.5 million years which ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture and grain-based diets. 

So basically I'm not eating grains, legumes, or anything dairy. 
I'm even taking it a step further and eating organic food and staying away from as much processed items as possible.

It's only been four days since I've started and I'm still learning, but so far I'm loving the recipes I've found. 
I just need to start planning ahead so I can make the food ahead of time and freeze since I have such an awful schedule. 
Also, if you're on the Paleo Diet and can recommend some recipes or advice, feel free to contact me!

Ten on Tuesday

I know I'm really late, but pft. I did it! 

1. Why is it that every effin' snow fall, they have to name it Winter Storm _________???? They are all pretty stupid names too. Winter Storm Saturn just made its presence known in Minnesota. 

2. Today was a snow day. Unheard of for college students, but I go to a commuter school so yay for that! 

3. Instead of doing homework, I shoveled....sort of. 

4. My cousin's wife finally gave birth to the twins...a boy and a girl. The little boy has a chest tube to help him breathe and they both have feeding tubes. The little girl is unable to keep her body temperature up on her own, so she's in an incubator. Send good vibes, thoughts, prayers, mojo, or anything you do to these little babies.

5. Why is it that there are little bitch babies everywhere I work? Why is everyone pulling the "Well so and so does it too!" when they get in trouble? Why does everyone feel the need to tell everyone else everyone's business. I'm so done with it all! 

6. I can't believe Spring Break is next week. 

7. I got crafty at work.

8. This makes me laugh my ass off for some reason. 

9. Someone got to get out and see the town when we had a pretty warm day. 

10. I started the Paleo Diet four days ago. I would murder for a taste of bread or some cheese. So don't get too close with your lunch!
