Random Thought for the Day!

I'm sitting here in Shafer waiting for Khris to get out of class simply just because he's always warm and its freakin' freezing outside.  There is old school Justin Timberlake playing in the background and I'm munching on an everything bagel with cream cheese and drinking an apple juice.  Ever since I've moved to RVA I've realized its all about the little things.  You can't live an extravagant life in RVA but that's how its supposed to be.  We're supposed to have empty gas tanks and live off of ramen (I actually am living off of ramen bc Lisa and I have yet to go to the grocery store) and we're supposed to eat junk food ALL THE TIME.  I don't really know where I'm going with this post but I feel the need to blog.  You know sometimes you just have to rant about the most random things just to get them off your mind?  Well that's what I'm doing.  I've had to be there for a lot of people here lately and I absolutely love it.  I had to be there for my sister when she was going through a tough time (and still is) and right now I'm being strong for my best friend Heather.  Lord knows that if I EVER get my hands on that guy....oh it would bad.  I can't explain how painful it is for me to see someone be scared of place they've loved all their life and because of stupid ass guy she's got hurt really bad.  But I know she'll grow from and that something positive will come out of it.

I recently signed up for classes and I'm taking 16 credits all on MWF...I'm happy about his decision but I hope I don't regret putting all my classes on the same days and that I don't get burned out.  Exams are coming up so I probably won't post for awhile.

I find myself not posting as often as I have in the past.  Usually when I would post it would be when I had something negative to get off my mind or to complain about how unhappy I was.  The other day Khris mentioned to me that I don't blog that much anymore and he asked me why I didn't.  I simply said that because when I was without him at Longwood, my blog was my way of getting the frustration of not seeing him out of me because if it dwelt inside me it would have tore me apart.  Well I guess the reason why I don't blog that much is because I'm happy with my life.  I'm satisfied with where I am.  I guess that's no reason to not blog and maybe I should blog about the happy parts...maybe that'll be my New Years' about the happy stuff, not the sad stuff... this'll probably be the first resolution I actually stick too...because Lord knows going to the gym 3 days a week isn't actually going to happen... :P

So I've ranted long enough and Khris is now out of class and is walking towards me at this very moment :)

R.I.P. Papa

Today my Papa passed away...he was sitting in his chair in the living room reading the newspaper when the Lord called him home.  He loved to read...he loved that chair.  Its perfect that he passed away was his place to get away from the world, getting lost in whatever book he was reading that day.  He had a glass of 7up sitting on the table near him and he was at peace.  Thinking about all this makes me sad, but it makes me feel at peace to know that he left this world doing what he loved most.

I will never forget the tractor rides where we would sit in the scoop part of the tractor and he would raise me and my siblings and cousins up and down for hours on end.  I will never forget the summers they came camping with us and we took turns driving his pontoon boat.  I will never forget the numerous thanksgivings and christmases celebrated at his house.  I will never forget the inner tube that he bought us that one summer and it caused more injuries than it did fun just because my cousins and I were so silly.

My Papa's birthday is on Christmas Eve and we always go to his house for Christmas Eve to celebrate so changes will be made in our traditions but the traditions we used to have will never be forgotten.  He would've been 75 this year.

R.I.P. Papa....I love you so much. <3

The bond of a sisters can not be broken.  No matter what they will always be sisters.  We will always be there for each other in the good times and the bad.  No matter how many fights we had a kids, we still love each other more than anything.  My sister is so strong and has been my entire life and now is the time where I have to be strong for her...and it has put my life in a new perspective.  What she's going through has made me think a lot and has made me wish I could just take it back like it never happened.  But I can't no matter how bad I want to.  He isn't worth it and he never was, so I'm gonna be the person my sister needs because right now a hug and a phone call means the world to her.  She doesn't deserve what has happened but you know what? He doesn't deserve her.

My sister will probably never read this, but I'm okay with that...she knows that I love her so much.

Oh How I Hate Traffic.

May I just rant about traffic for 10 minutes?? okay. thanks. 

So I'm driving from Khris' house this morning to get to class at 9am...I left his house at 7:50am taking 288N to 64E to 95S.  So I'm getting ready to merge onto 288 and traffic is backed i'm like GREAT. Well 288 managed to pick up and I was running at about 65mph yayy well then I get to 64E and the merge is traffic backup...nothing.  Until about 10 minutes away from the 95S exit ramp and DEAD STOP. ugh. So we're inching a long and suddenly 10 minutes turns into 25 minutes.  AND YOU KNOW WHAT I HATE?!?!?!?! All the cars that zoom up ahead KNOWING that they have to get over and then they wait until the last minute possible and then they decide to merge over OH NUH UH MISTER YOU ARE NOT GETTING IN FRONT OF ME. I mean like how rude is that...this guy seriously like cuts me off and I lay on my horn and he flicks me off...HE DIDN'T EVEN HAVE A SIGNAL ON. ughh some people I swear.  So anyway in the end I ended up getting to my apt around 9:20 which is takes me 20 mins to walk to class putting me there 10 minutes before the class would be over so I skipped because that would've been a waste of my time.  but good heavens people LEARN TO DRIVE. 

okay i'm done now. :)
