what a day!

Yesterday was a riot. After I got out of work Amy and I headed up to UMO to go see Oppy and go to the mall. Amy and I were driving up there and I personally get lost in Bangor/Orono every time I go up there for some reason so I was depending on Amy to get us there. There were two exits we could have taken... and we took the wrong one BUT we got there! We ended up going through all of the Frat houses and Im like, we are lost in the frats.. exciting. Then, Amy found Oppys hall, and we made it!!! We got into the elevator with this guy.. who had a jug of ammonia (or ammonium as Amy calls it) and it was a bit weird, what did he need it for? Why would you just have a gallon jug full of ammonia? Odd. So we went to Oppys room, hung out there for a bit, then went to visit Julia which was fun fun stuff. Before Oppy was telling us she had hung out with this kid that she just met the night before, Tom, and I was like, "Lets go see him!" So we went to Knox!! :) :) It was a riot. We walked into Toms room while he only had boxers on and he was like, let me get some pants on, and Im like, Hey, Im Jill, dont worry I see guys without pants on all the time! What an introduction, I guess I wasnt even thinking. The intro must have been semi memorable because he remembered me at the end of the night!

We met some of Courtneys sisters while leaving Knox and we talked to them for awhile, and its really exciting to see the nice girls she has to spend time with. Makes me feel better knowing shes with them! We went to the mall and I twisted my ankle shopping, which was just great because i was wearing high boots but I still stumbled along.. I dont know how but I did. We bought some stuff and then ended up going to DQ before we went back to Oppys room. We hung out with Tom again (I LOVE HIM!! Hes such a nice guy!) and then Amy and I left to go home...

What a Saturday! Im so tired right now though, and usually today we go to Augusta to do laundry and whatnot, and Im just about dead to the world. I want to stay home!!!! But if we do we wont have any clean clothes :( Hm! Not sure what Im going to do!!

who says you cant boil chicken?

Time flies...

Lets see what has been going on in my life.

I signed up for my classes for the fall, which is exciting. Im in my nursing clinical and an english class. I know it doesnt sound like too much but those 2 classes together equal 12 credits, so Im still full time!! I had a meeting with my nursing advisor today and I told her about my problems with my bitch ass teacher, and she said I wasnt the only one who has had problems with him and she knew who I was talking about before I even meantioned his name. That is not a good sign. We talked about my GPA because if it falls under a 2.5 I am dropped from clinicals and where he failed my first test, I dont know what effect it will have on my GPA. She said they can do something called forgiving it, and they will wipe it from my GPA calculations. Wonderful. I might just need that...

Im tres excited with Charlies. One of the girls there Amanda gave her notice so it left her Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday shifts open.. and I asked for them. They said that they would think about it and I found an application they had accepted for the position so I was a bit worried because, I really do need the hours. In the fall, I am planning on leaving DQ because after my first semester in clinicals I will be a CNA, and I hope to get a job doing that. It will give me more hours and more experience, and I definitely will need that. So now at Charlies I will be working Tuesday 430-8, Wednesday 430-8, Friday 430-8, and I have a Saturday rotation. One Saturday I will work my normal 745-1ish and the next I will work 745-6 with a break for lunch. Nice. Im excited because its more hours and I feel comfortable with that choice.

Thats all for now, I need to take a shower and study for my Horomone exam tomorrow! Wish me luck!!!

OOOH I hung out w/ Kirstan today and let me tell you, Pepere makes the best boiled chicken EVER!!!! :)

if you voted bush...

This week has been a good work week, which is interesting because that usually never happens. Something inside of me has triggered and instead of stressing out and worrying about everything I say or do, I have been just letting loose and having a good time, and it seems like everyone around me has been enjoying it. Maybe that has been my problem the past couple of months, maybe I have been so wound up with school and work I just let my personality go a bit. It sucks to think that happened, but I honestly think it did. I seem to be happier right now, which is what I need and I think I need to stop taking every single thing in life so serious, and remember that Im only 20 years old and I can let loose every now and again.

Vacation was good, I rested for most of it which was extremely enjoyable. I worked only about 20 hours, instead of the normal 30-32, and I had no class. I studied a bit though, hard not to, but I tried for the most part to just have a relaxing week. Only 5-6 more weeks of class and summer will be here. I keep telling myself that but Im worried. I have one class, my Politics and Gov't class that Im not doing well in at all. My first exam was a 53 because I wrote my essay wrong. What an old prick. Hes such a jerk. He tells us that Bush is the reason we are in so much debt because he doesnt believe in planned parenthood and mothers are sucking up welfare. He has used the term "colored people" used the N word.. its unreal. Hes old, and hes alone he says and has no family. Hmm... wonder why. Its horrible to think that I may not do well in his class because I voted Bush. He thinks anyone who voted for Bush is not a true American citizen. Can you believe the balls of this guy? What an asshole. Man, my dad would have a field day with him....

My fish tank water was really cloudy the other day so Rick and I emptied most of the water, and I put some stuff in it to get the cloudiness out.. and now it is yellowish green. Damnit. So tonight after I type up my Nutrition take home and study.. Im going to completely empty out the tank, clean the gravel and everything because I dont like the fact its all green, and my fishies must not like it either!

Thanks all for now, I have lots of stuff to do and no time to do it!
