I can't even focus. I feel so confused and all of my emotions are one big jumble and most of them are not good. Ugh. I kinda want to cry.
I better go to bed. I gotta get up in 7 hours and sit in a million bazillion more hours of briefings again tomorrow.
At least tomorrow is Halloweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeennnnnnnnn!!!!!!!

Tonight I am going to a Ball (yes, a ball!)! I am soooooo excited - I am sure it is going to be tons of fun. I am going to wear this super cute & sexy black dress that I have been dying to wear. And I got some really hot new shoes. Oh man I love new shoes! I'm going to be the belle of the ball. Or at least try to be. The only thing that kind of sucks is that it is really rainy out today, but I am not going to let it bother me.
Saturday is the Halloween pre-party that Jessi, Alice, Tony and I planned together. I love Halloween. It is the best holiday ever. After we get good and sauced, we are going to head down to the Nightmare on M Street in D.C. I heard that it is really awesome. It is basically a bar crawl around midtown, but we'll probably only end up going to 2 bars or something because I've heard that the lines get pretty long as the night goes on.

Today I am going to get my hair done and I absolutely cannot wait. Mainly because it looks awful, but also because I get to get my hair washed by someone else. Oh man that is the best feeling ever. If I meet a man that will do that for me whenever I want, I might consider marrying him. Ha ha.
Also, yesterday I received an Instant Recognition Award for Outstanding Contribution to my program. I was totally pumped! Woo hoo I am the bomb!

Tonight I'm going over to Jessi's house to alter my Halloween costume, because it is absolutely gimongous on me. It was one of those "one-size" ones so I didn't get to pick a size, unfortunately. So hopefully I don't screw it up because I don't think I have sewn anything since 7th grade home economics. Home economics is really a dumb name for it now that I think about it. I remember I made my sister a pillow case with Marvin the Martian on it. Ha ha.
I was just perusing Cute Overload and I saw this ad for these super cute stuffed animals at this website:

I'm really excited because I have tons of fun stuff planned this weekend. Starting with going to Alice's house for dinner tonight - she is making me homemade Chinese food! I am pumped! I looooooove Chinese food! And I've never had it homemade before! Then I'm going out with Jessi to the bar later on and I'm sure I will have a Chinese food baby. Ha ha. Tomorrow I am going to a wine tasting all day with Alan and Justin, and tomorrow night I am going out on the town with Alice to this really swanky club in China town. More awesomeness. Woot woot. I'm super excited about the wine tasting because I have been wanting to go to some vineyards in Virginia for a really, really long time. It's going to be a blast. Sunday I have millions of errands to run, including going to get my Halloween costume altered because it is huge on me. So that should be fun.
At some point I would also like to catch up on some SLEEP as well.
Well so far this post is pretty boring so in order to redeem myself I will post 1) pictures of a hot guy, and 2) a joke.
A Jewish student was doing well in school in all subjects except for Math. So his parents decide to send him to a private Catholic school.
While there the boy came home from school and studied every day. At the end of the marking period the boy got straight A's. So his parents asked him, "What motivated you to do so well in school?"
He replied, "When I saw that guy nailed to a plus sign I knew they weren't fooling around!"

I should not be writing on my blog after 3 martinis and a shot. A free shot at that! The manager gave us free shots! Woo hoo!

This love sick thing
I like serious relationships and
A girl like me dont stay single for long
Cuz everytime a boyfriend and I break up
My world is crushed and I'm all alone
The love bug crawls right back up and bites me - and I'm back!
Today I got to work super late, mainly because I stayed up super late last night and couldn't fall asleep. So I slept in and took my time getting ready. Jackie laughed when I told her I have a much better outlook on life when I have gotten enough sleep. I got up around 8:45 and took my time getting ready. It was nice. The only thing that sucks about it is that I now have to stay at work until 7, because I am going to go work out for an hour with Jessi and Nikki at around 4. It'll be a nice way to break up the day though. Plus I am going out to dinner at 7:30 anyway so it doesn't really matter! See? It was all part of my master plan.

Today is my least favorite day of the week - Tuesday. Because...I have class for 3 hours tonight. Ugh. It is awful. Our professor is totally unorganized and all of his instructions for the homework, exam, and project are totally ambiguous. On his grading scale he states that 5% of our grade is up to "teacher's discretion." Personally I think that is totally ridiculous. I would like to hear my teacher friends' opinions on that one. That's like, oh if he doesn't like me he can knock down my grade 5%? Under normal circumstances, I would not mind since for the most part my professors seem to like me. BUT for this guy...I discussed it with some of my other female classmates and we all agree that he may have a tiny problem with women. Case in point, for one of our homework assignments, a girlfriend and I both got a lower score than another male classmate even though our homework was more thorough and complete. Not to mention, it was pretty simple considering all you did was follow a tutorial for this software program, so pretty much everyone had almost exactly the same thing. Oh man I can't talk about it anymore!

After that we went to happy hour and it was pretty fun, but I was so exhausted from working all day and playing racquetball for an hour that I was not very perky while we were there. We had a good time, though.
Oh man I am so glad it is finally Friday! This week seriously flew by but I am still so tired, and I can't wait to catch up on some sleep this weekend. Jessie S. and I are going to be doing tons of fun stuff in Baltimore so I am super excited. Woo hoo!

I finally finished my performance self-appriasal thingie that I had to do for work. It wasn't so bad once I sat down and just did it. But seriously, how do you sum up all the work you have done with respect to each goal in only 1000 characters! Impossible!
Last night I had a dream that I went sky-diving with Alice and another co-worker, Barry. It was so freaking hilarious. I cannot get over how crazy my dreams are. I was up in the plane, and I almost chickened out, but Barry made me go. And I remember having a conversation with the sky-diving people saying that they should let you try out different elevations so you can get used to it, rather than just going straight up to the highest one. I think that's a pretty damn good idea, but then again I suppose it might take some of the thrill out of it.

I'm really bored. Really. Bored. I have to fill out this thing for work where you rate your performance over the last year, and honestly, I am NOT in the mood. I shall not do it right now. And that is that. So there. I just closed the window. Sometimes it is best to procrastinate.
I can't believe it is already Wednesday. This week is flying by. I am really excited about the weekend already; I'm going to Baltimore for the weekend. I am so pumped to see the aquarium there. I hear it is awesome and I love aquariums. Hence the three aquariums that I have in my house. I don't care if I am a nerd. :o)
This week I am going to go apply for my passport for my trip to Germany. I got my passport pics last weekend and they are totally hideous. I won't be surprised if the Germans turn me away at the border.

Today was really boring at work, and it was so quiet all day you could practically hear a pin drop. Since it was a government holiday, a lot of people weren't there. Which is fine I guess, but I was just booooooooooooooooooooored.
I'm almost half way through The Glass Castle and I really really like it. The people in the book are seriously crazy. I can't believe half of the crap that they do. It's a memoir too, so that means people really did this crazy shit. Now that I've piqued your interest, I am sure you will want to go out and buy it! Ha ha.
Well, I suppose I should end this post because I don't want to infect you with my crankiness. I shall bid you adieu.

Today your life holds for you endless possibilities. You have built a solid foundation and you have worked hard for it. Continue to do what is necessary to move forward one day at a time. Write down your dream and tuck it away - entrusting that all things will come at the right time. Keep sight always of what is important in life. Remember that true happiness and purpose will be found in relationships - in the workplace and at home. Live each day open to guidance, and your purpose will be revealed to you. May your future be filled with love and acceptance.
Isn't that nice? One of my grandma's really good friends (who has been a close friend of our family) sent me a card that said the above. I thought it was really sweet and special so I thought I would share it.
On another note, I had a dream that I got a new job, moved back to Michigan, and bought a house on the same block as Jackie's new house. :o)

Time to go for a run.

I am soooooooooooooo totally pumped and excited I can't stand it. I have been talking to my friend Jenny on MySpace (we used to work together at Willowtree in college), and she said I could come and visit her in Germany! She is living there because her husband is deployed there. And yesterday she sent me a message saying that she has some friends in Italy that we can go visit while I am there - which pretty much sent me over the EDGE with excitement because Italy is the #1 place I have ALWAYS wanted to go! I can't believe it! I just cannot believe that one of my dreams is really coming true! So, last night I was looking up tickets and she told me two different airports that I could fly into. The tickets are like $480 to either one, but one of them has a layover in Detroit and the other has a layover in Amsterdam. Can you guess which one I am going to pick?! Uh, yeah! Amsterdam! So anyway, I am planning on going at the end of February. I thought it would be a really nice birthday present to myself!!! :o) Woo hoo!!!
My book club picked our first book that we are going to read: The Glass Castle. I bought it a few days ago and read the first two or three pages and it already seems really really good. I'm excited.
BUT NOT AS EXCITED AS I AM ABOUT GERMANY & ITALY!!!!!!!

Yesterday Jessi, Nikki and I started a new workout program that was in last month's Fitness magazine and it seriously kicked our butts. It has 9 supersets, and you repeat each 3 times, and ohmigod we were seriously about to die in the end. I am so sore today. It was such a good workout! It was really exciting to start something new. It is a four-week plan too, and each week is different. So for the next month it should keep things interesting!
Last night when I got home I got out all of my Halloween decorations and put them up around my house. I love Halloween. I think it is my new favorite holiday. And I ordered my costume. I am not going to say what I finally decided on...you'll have to wait for the pics!
After that I watched The Horse Whisperer. I was really afraid it was going to be sad (it was, a little) but it was such a good movie. And it was totally wierd but I was seriously swooning over Robert Redford! I don't know what it was...girls you have seriously got to watch it. It is some really nice-cowboy-man-candy.... and it wasn't only that, it was just his character...! I mean, the movie is totally old (released in 1998) and he is 71 now. He did not look 62 in this movie at all. Scarlett Johannsen played the 13-year-old little girl in the movie. Here are some pics from it!
