New Years New Years, what to say....

Happy New Year everyone!  This one is one for the books.  Great friends, great food and booze, I mean what else is there to ask for.  This is the first year that I have not been with my high school friends, I thought it was going to be weird, but it was great.  Ames is full of surprises though.  No power (for about an hour), ice everywhere and fantastic mudslides. 

The night started out a little rough, when Jake couldn't tell time.  Thanks for making me carry down part of your dinner alone, in heals and from the third floor.  It was good times.  Then getting 2 Four Locos later Jake was another fun task that I completed before going out to Julianne's.  I have never had a Four Loco, but I am pretty sure starting the night out with 2 was a rock star choice.  Dinner and mudslides were to follow.  Ahh what a great decision.  Middle of King's Cup, power goes bye bye.  We all pack up and head to Weemsy's, as Jake calls him.  Pretty sure that is the point of the evening when the limes went flying.  Thus the start of an even better evening.  As the night progressed, beers were drank, wine was finished and Andre (can't be New Year's without it) was popped.  Shots were taken and more limes were scattered about.  I am pretty sure this is why when I got out of bed in the morning I stepped on one, whatever it was New Year's.

The high point of the evening was taking to Jake's mom.  Great times, but Jake we are still waiting on those peanut clusters.  Don't make me call your mom and tell her they never made the party.  Or it could have been just having his phone all night.  Sorry if it got you in trouble, but we do these things out of love. 

The low point to New Year's was working on the 1st.  I am sorry, it is not my fault that Christmas vomited all over Aunt Maude's.  First week there and I had to clean the over abundance of Christmas decorations with people I had never met.  And let's not even talk about the white elephant gift exchange.  You know, bring random things that you no longer want, or things that are to be joke gifts.  No no no, not how that goes at Maude's, I guess I didn't get the memo that I was to bring, let me see here a bottle of Grey Goose, Twilight board games, wine, shot glass sets and who knows what else kinds of gifts.  I don't know where you all grew up, but where I come from you bring the shit that you don't want anymore.  I must add though, I enjoyed the dino that I brought to the party.  I thought he was pretty fun.

New Year's is over and the resolutions have started.  This year I am going to save money, I need to be able to get an apartment and furnish it when I become a big girl and graduate in May, do things for me and oh yeah the ever popular, lose weight and get healthy, however I am not big on this whole thing that everyone calls exercise, so I guess I will just have to see how that one goes.  That's all for now.  Happy New Year once again and let this be a great 2011!!!

"Love is blind. Friendship tries not to notice."

Love, what is it?  I always thought I knew what it was until my most recent relationship ended.  I was head over heals and if he would have asked me to marry him the answer would have been yes.  Now this relationship is over and we are friends.  It was an up and down winding roller coaster of a relationship and the friendship has been no different.  He is currently in another "serious" relationship, but still says things as a what if our relationship was this or that, what would it be like?  I don't have the answers to those questions but he only seems to ask them when I am trying to start something new.  My best friend often times just listens to my problems and attempts to offer her unbiased advice, but more recently she has been more honest.  This is what I need.  I can't see where the relationship is when I am involved in it.  I need a friend to notice what I can't, so friends step in when I am being stupid and blind!

Men, you say women are confusing, however I beg to differ that men are more confusing then women.  If you could just say what you want and stop beating around the bush it would make things so much easier.  You don't want a serious relationship, fine, but you don't just want sex, also fine and preferred.  So you don't want either of those things, what the hell do you want?  I don't know if the lack of communication that bothers me because since coming to college all of my primary courses have taught me how to read, listen and dissect different forms of communication, but when I can't do that on this, it frustrates me.  Word of the wise to men, say what you want, be direct and honest.  It will get you farther, faster.  

New Year's Resolution:  Stop trying to figure out what other people want and figure out what I want.

Simple resolution, now let's see if I can do it.  Get excited for New Year's, it's going to be fun!

Here goes nothing

As I sit down to write my  first ever blog, I am almost at a loss for words.  I don't even know where to begin.  With this year winding down and coming to an end, I have a lot to look back on.  Relationships, friendships, jobs and just everyday life.

I have one semester left of school and I am scared shitless.  I sit back and wonder what I am going to do when I graduate.  I apply and apply to jobs and keep looking everywhere.  I find nothing but nos and unpaid internship offers.  Last I checked, lack of money doesn't pay the bills.  There is the option of coming back to school once I graduate in May.  Then this brings up the where in the hell am I going to get another $30,000.  I am over my head in school debt.  I once had a friend tell me that the amount of money doesn't matter as long as I end up doing something that makes me happy.  I get what he is saying, but I also need to know that when I do graduate and go into the working world that I am not going to be drowning in debt as soon as I get my first paycheck.  I am 21 and I am in more debt then most people twice my age.

Enough about the sad part of school, on to something a little more fun.  This past semester has been one of the best that I can say that I have ever had.  I became friends with some of the greatest people and I can say that I am going to miss them all next semester.  I have to go back to the 'wonderful' world of Communication Studies.  It is going to be nowhere near as fun as the class in HRI.  Even when there is a professor who can't teach or a lecture that we all don't want to go to, it seemed as if it could always be fun.  From Cafe B long islands to bottles of wine at Jake's this semester has been a very fun time.  College is for fun and friends and even a little bit of booze.  Some nights with more than others.  

This is my final thought for the night.  More is to come, I can promise you that.  Here a quote that will be the start of my next post. "Love is blind. Friendship tries not to notice."
