Perfect Time

Every now and then, there is a perfect time to just sit back and drink a beer. Right now, for instanse, is that time. I just got back from the gym. The weather outside is perfect. I know it may only be 11am but I am going to go drink a beer, then go to class.

My roomie is fat

I just received my new mp3 player(128 megs for $10). I am so excited because it will help motivate me to get into shape before fall semester starts and to continue making T$ feel fat. This is prolly the best running playlist that I have made in a long time. It is set to random so I don’t get accustomed to the order. As you may notice, Eye of the Tiger is on there twice because you can never hear it too often (on my first run I heard it 3x).

Hed (PE)- Waiting to Die
RAGE- Guerilla Radio
Foreigner- Eye Of the Tiger
Linkin Park- Faint
Cake- Going the Distance
3 Days Grace- I Hate Everything About You
Young MC- Bust a Move
Chingy- Bring da Beef
Chingy- We Clubbin’
Foreigner- Eye of the Tiger
Contender- Last of a Living Breed
The Game ft 50 cent- This is how we do
J-Kwon- Hood Hop
Prodigy- Breathe
Prodigy- Firestarter
RAGE- Calm like a Bomb
Linkin Park- Breaking the Habit
Linking Park- Numb
The Early November- Everynight’s Another Story
Rocky Soundtrack- Gonna Fly Now

It is very eclectic, but perfect(as my body will soon be).

I'm Back

To all my devoted fans,
After my longer than expected hiatus, i am back.

As i was doing laundry, i was thinking about all the things that I hate girls say to me. Here is the list:

1. You are so mature for your age. (By far #1)
2. But I love him.
3. I wish i was still a virgin.
4. I know what i am doing (in respects driving, cooking, cleaning, and anything else that i know is right and they dont)
5. Well... i used to be like that.
6. I have a boyfriend.
7. i didnt think it would turn out like that.

Welcome to Atlanta

Well, it has been a little less than a week since my last entry. If I am going to keep this going, I may need to add more shit to it.

So in these past few days a lot but yet very little has happened. I went home to Colorado, and was there for less than 48 hours. Home is wonderful... if you are there for short periods of time. I realize how much I love my mom, dad, brother(who was also home from college), and dog. Then I leave before we get annoyed with each other.

When I left, I didn't do the flying thing, as I always do... I drove back to Gainesville. Yes, all 1900 miles by myself. It was absolutely amazing.

There are a few things that I like to pass along to everyone about driving across country:
1. Driving long distances alone is not a leisure thing, it is a MISSION
2. Drink JUST ENOUGH to stay hydrated, and when you do drink make sure it has caffeine.
3. Don't sleep, it you do your eyes become sore when you wake up and you just want to sleep more. Trust me, with a caffeine buzz, it keeps you going to where you can't sleep.
4. Truck drivers know a lot more than you (about driving on the highway), so if they want in your lane, let them over.
5. ONLY stop for gas, when you stop for gas that means it is ok to pee and buy drinks/munchies. That is all you can do. Don't mingle and fraternize with people at the pumps next to you, remember you are on a mission, and they could compromise you success. (Note: the no fraterinaztion part is difficult considering all contact you had with people is your cellphone, radio, and cds, so just do what I did: stare down the guys and check out the girls, make sure it is obvious)
6. Avoid Missouri as much as possible. They have some of the shittiest roads. Also, they are not called the "Show me state" for nothing. Everyone in that state rubbernecks. Where else can traffic be backed 7 miles because a guy was changing a flat tire on the shoulder.
7. If you drive the speed limit, you are going to slow.
8. Invest some money into a decent radar detector, you will love it.
9. Drive in the right lane as much as possible except to pass. I hate all you "left lane cruisers" especially when I going 20 mph faster you.
10. Cops have gotten smarter. The now cruise in ongoing traffic and check for speeding. Which means you have to respond quickly to your radar detector.
11. The final thing is try to make your trip enjoyable but not leisurely. Some of my methods:
-talk smack to other cars
-had good driving music(I like classic rock and 80's pop music, you know stuff you can jam to)
-have an anthem for the drive, for example, mine was "Welcome to Atlanta" because the last major city for me to drive through was Atlanta, after anything that you view as an accomplishment during the drive blast that song as loud as your speakers will let you
-Pretend it is a videogame, except you have only one life left.

From my first blog entry, I would like to thank that person who left a comment. It made me feel special. Now, can you hook me up with your hot roommates???

My First Blog

Well, this is my first blog. I am not sure why I am doing this, it must be because of the hurricane that missed us. I am pissed off about that, I was really expecting to go through a hurricane. I mean i am not going to school in Florida for no reason!!! I wanted a hurricane!!! But other than that, my flight was cancelled and now i have to wait another day before i go home. waiting really dones't matter, because I probably wouldn't be doing anthing in CO besides shopping with my mom and maybe my brother if he is home.

Oh and to top things off, there is a silly drunk Indian guy here. I am staying at Taylor's families house for a couple days.

After today I have really realized that most crazy poeple live in Florida. Probably because all those old people retire and then move here to die, and then their lazy children with no jobs follow them down here. I was watching an episode of cops, and guess where it took place?? Florida (Hilsborough County). It was a very entertaining episode, one part was about a family of guys who fought off animal control because they tried taking their untagged dog. And the guys were as bucolic, white trash as you can get.

Right now, I am not sure of what to write about. Maybe things will come to me later.
