sickness pt. II (and small rants)

i'm feeling worse! i've washed my hands so many times my skin feels like a raisin (middle finger to work). that's my smallest problem. the regular symptoms for a cold, flu, or whatever have taken over my body... maybe i jinxed myself?

this cat needs to be distempered before i throw him out the window.

HAPPY [belated] BIRTHDAY to my favorite 4 year old niece, Elly.
I miss you, babyboo -- Tita Bus has a present coming for you :)

today i got in a small, but still annoying, confrontation with my boss. early in my shift he told me to finish the sweet tea and the new manager in training said, or what i heard, "it's done." so i let it go, assuming it was finished.. to my surprise, it was NOT and when i defended myself saying she had gotten to it before i did, she said.. "oh no honey, i said, 'i done finish'" --> translation, "oh no honey, i said, I DIDN'T FINISH."

fuck America and its inability to form coherent, grammatically correct sentences.


in a box, and at the riot.

i feel like i'm trapped in something way too routine. my weeks have been flying by but only because it's gotten so monotonous lately. there are the occasional good moments here and there but there's nothing left for me to do. maybe my seasonal depression is kicking in, but it's too soon to say since the weather can't make up its own mind. here in richmond, i feel displaced from everything. it's only been like this for a couple of months because last year was such drastic change from virginia beach. i don't know what i wanna do in any aspects so i feel entirely too itchy.

(new favorite)
i figured i'd post some pictures to lighten the mood. my internet isn't throwing an attitude problem so that's nice. yesterday i went through an unbearable headache... must've been because i was yelling at the cats so damn much.

tuesday night was insane! after the news about Obama being the president elect, VCU went crazy. about 5,000 people ran outside and blocked off Main St, Belvidere, and Broad (sherita & i were on broad). the cops weren't even doing anything, the news said they were happy about the riots. people were climbing poles, jumping on cars, playing drums, and chanting for obama. i've never been in one of those before, reeeeally super cool -- for lack of better adjectives. [[ bad picture, but i'll try to get videos up. they're better quality. ]]

i feel ugly. soooo, turbo time.


on the road again

my body is sore all over. this is an awesome feeling, no lie.

i'm going home again today. when i decide to drive, it becomes serious business. i'm either driving down the street for 2 minutes or across cities for 2 hours -- i've gotten used to sitting down and staring at roads. today will be a rushed & hectic kind of day.. i get paid & i have to get down to VB by 3 for an oil change meaning i'll either have to hurry to the bank before class, after class, or after my appointment so i'll have enough time to buy speez's baby shower gift. it's a boy... i've never had to shop for one! :) he's definitely going to be spoiled hahah.

this is my favorite part of driving in the fall.
when the leaves change color
and there are still hints of green left...
like summer is trying to remind us that
it actually did exist.
... and it'll come again.

people become so wrapped up in their lives that they see things idealistically. sometimes we have to step outside of ourselves and look at how others see us before we lose any potential greatness. i forget that... how much can a person take before they realize a better something was there all along? in the past few days, however, i've been more concerned about this than anything else. where's my life going? "why?" the why why why's. maybe i'm not emotional or sensitive, maybe i'm only human.
being human has it's limitations.
