newness

No School.
New Job.
ANTM marathons.
Monday night "Hills" watch party's with Bennett. (She's one of my old roommates)
Grey's is starting soon.
The weather is finally cooling off.
School loans are due soon.
Fall Retreat is coming soon. (My favorite trip)


I haven't really had anything to write about lately.

I could tell you about my job, but there are few happy stories when it comes to child abuse and neglect. (And at least I have a job.)

I could tell you more about how I enjoy grocery shopping and using our new vacuum, but I think we all know how exciting that is to read about. (At least I can go grocery shopping without food stamps.)

I could tell you about the noises Carl's car is making (it is similar to a cappuccino machine) but at least we each have a car that works and we have no payments to make on them. (And we have good friends that help us fix our cars for cheap)


My life pretty much is about people. Eating with them, watching shows with them, etc. I know there's more to life than this...like saving the planet from global warming, starting a compost pile, having my own garden, recycling everything, being aware of what I'm supporting with my finances and time, not supporting walmart, yadda yadda yadda. I do agree with all of that. But some days, I need more than issues I care about to get me through the day. I need people.


PS, "Fast Food Nation" could be one of the best movies I've seen. It has inspired me to be more aware of what I eat, where I eat, and who I support. It embraces all kinds of issues and shows how they affect each other. You should check it out.

That's all.

sometimes throwing wine glasses helps get me through. but people are better. we should be real friends again, not internet friends.

you liked fast food nation? i kind of thought it was poorly scripted/put together. it was too many issues going on.
but i'm glad you liked it! it definitely makes me want to veer away from fast food, though...no poop in my burgers, thanks!
