First, I want to thank SweetImpakt
for sharing that video. I loooved
it! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I haven't had a new Rob laugh in a while. I think the best part was when Rob replied: "I don't use a phone." For some reason that part tickled
me. His facial expressions are always priceless. Love the haircut too.
Good afternoon everyone. I hope everybody had a productive day. My day went well today. I got through my biology class without passing out from pure boredom and confusion. I got a lovely e-mail from my Data Processing teacher informing me that she won't be in today, so class was canceled (yay
!) I got home in enough time to catch up on all of my work, possibly get a few chapters ahead AND get to bed in enough time tonight. I'm so happy I may even do my hair
. I've been so out of it lately that I've been just pulling it back. I've also been doing a lot of thinking about getting a job while still going to school next semester. My mom doesn't think it's be a good idea. I'll most likely get distracted from school somehow, but, I want to stop depending on her so much. It'll only be a part-time job because I'm currently enrolled as a full-time student. My only concern is if I'll have enough time to still get my work done in an appropiate amount of time. I can't afford to be behind in anything, in any way. In other news, it's so cold here today! I had to put the cheap leather jacket away and bring out the heavy one! I even saw people with gloves and things on. The wind is not playing around here.
Also, a Mentalist came to my college today. He did about an hour of a preformance. He was really good! Read a few people and played a few games with us. I wish I could have recorded it. He even hypnotized someone! I really enjoyed everything he did. He had some type of audio CD's for sale where he said he hypnotized people to help with different everyday things. I was tempted to buy 2 of them. There was one to help with weight loss and self-confidence
............but, I didn't buy them
: The rain has stopped here too, thank goodness. I heard a few other students say in class today that it even turned to snow for a while. I have lots of favorite shows. My list could go on forever!
To name a few though, I like House, Law & Order: SVU, Criminal Minds, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Glee, and Psych
. I have a lot more but those are the ones that I absolutely could not live without. I used to be like this about Bones
, but, the excitement i had about that show has died a lot. I still watch though. What are your favorites? Foundations of Writing sounds like it will be very beneficial, but, I don't think I'll succeed well in it. I am the furthest thing from a writer. I've never gotten a bad grade on a paper, but I avoid writing at all costs. I just never think I sound fluent
and I have a hard time putting my words on paper. I always write with a dictionary and a thesaurus nearby, so a teacher in the past said I should be able to broaden my writing skills because it seemed like I was already practicing good writing ennhancements. I hope this class will help though. Susie
: No, I didn't move to specificaly go to school. Although, it was a good portion of why we made the move. Yes, I have some family with me. In fact, my cousin, his girlfriend and her family moved here from Chicago first. That's how we found out about this little town. My cousin's girlfriend is close to my age but I think we are on different levels. She has a 2 children and we don't have too much in common. She comes over though and we talk all the time. She does my pedicures sometime. I wouldn't say we're close
friends, but we defintely get along. My mom is slightly disabled now so we don't get to do as much together as we used too. Me and my brother are fairly close in age but the only thing we have in common are parents and DNA. We are complete oppsites. If you personally knew us, you would argue that we were even born to the same family. My TV friend is one of those older
. She is married with 2 children so I'm sure she wouldn't want to "hang
" with me. She gives me rides home sometimes and we even talk on FaceBook often. She's really nice. Yesterday we compared Spring semester schedules to see if we'd still get to see eachother since we have different majors/classes. Luckily we get out of class at the same time on 2 days of the week. So, we'll still get ride home together. That's so funny, my aunt said I had an "old soul
" when she noticed that I'd rather listen to music that my mom used to listen to than to listen to new music my brother likes. All of my favorite movies came out before I was even born. I guess because when I was a lot younger I was a "Momma's Baby" and I always did whatever she did. I told everybody to pray I pass this Publick speaking class. I'm trying not to overwhelm myself by thinking it over too much because it's making me too nervous. Since you're a teacher, how do you keep yourself calm when speaking in front of your students? You seem like the coolest
teacher ever! Christina
: I have no idea how people get Christian, or even Christiana. I get Christiana very often. My 3rd grade teacher constantly spelled it that way. She always pronounced it right but always spelled it Christiana. I won "Student of the Month" one time and she spelled Christiana on my award! I didn't even accept it. At some point, you get students names correct. I know she HAD to see the correct spelling when doing attendance. I verbally corrected her too all of the time. Such an annoying thing. That's one thing I don't think I've ever gotten. Everyone always spells it with a C. They might miss the H a lot though. I think I'm shy because I embarass myself constantly. I'm NOT one of the "cool kids
" bored by the sea
: Hello, I'm Christina and I'm new to this thread. I don't think I've introduced myself to yet. If I have, forgive me. My memory is slowly going. I'll be brain dead by the time I'm 25 MissP
: Awww! Yay you. Glad you've found someone you like who likes you back. Wish I was that lucky Caryn
: You must have an E-reader? Are those very handy? I want one but my eyes get enough strain from being on computers all day. I'm worried that the backlight will irritate.
I want to apologize too because I know I've gotten a few names mixed up. It's a lot of Rob addicts here which mean a lot of names to remember. So, if you're someone whose name I have completely butchered or confused with another member, please forgive. Remind me who you are
. Screen names, I remember. Real names.....................
