We signed a lease today! I'm so relieved that we found some place to live! All of my friends are in the same neighborhood (after the drama of all of us deciding that we really didn't want to live with each other anymore.. oy) so that will be a ton of fun! And it's only like 5 blocks from school, so that won't be that bad of a walk. The only thing is we'll have to cross one of the busiest streets in La Crosse, thank God for stoplights!
So yeah. Tonight's just a night in of vegging out... baking cookies.. and letting my brain unwind. It's only Monday, really?

And because I'm so vain... and pretty much love it. My new haircut!
Tuesday, October 21, 2008
Other than that, just trying to survive school. I finally quit Cheddarheads, but it sounded like I would be welcomed with open arms if I ever decided to go back. Which I may, during the summer if I can't find another job. But I am hoping to find a daycare job. One of my friends has one, and she loves it, so I'd like to find one like that.
So yeah... otherwise... nothing else is really going on. I'm excited for Halloween... I'm going to be a Go-Go dancer, complete with boots and everything! It's going to be cute, I'll definitely take pictures... and question.. any suggestions for make-up?

Don't you ever just wish someone would tell you what to do? Sure. You say that's part of life, figuring out for yourself what's going to happen. I don't think so. I hate not knowing the future. I want to know that I'm going to be happy, that I'm not going to be alone for the rest of my life. I want to know that I'm going to find a job that I love. I just want to know if everything is going to be ok. See? Thinking too much... arguing with myself about things. I'm going to go crazy, I tell ya.

The 21st birthday was GREAT! I had so much fun... although I think Downtown is a little over rated. I had a lot of yummy drinks... but really wasn't that bad, I promise... in fact, I think my friend got more drunk from sharing my drinks than I was!
There's me with my first fishbowl! And no, I didn't drink it all by myself... I had plenty of help... and ok maybe that makes me look like an alcoholic just a little bit, but it was my bday! And I have noticed, the later it gets in the night, the bigger and more crooked my smile gets... haha.
And me and Terrence at my Birthday Party... another good night, save for the little bit of boy drama. (There seems to be a bit of a blue drink trend, huh?)
But overall, good birthday! I had a lot of friends help me celebrate, and I love them for it! And only once have I not gotten carded at the bars... the black bar where the bouncer looks at me, I try to hand him my id, and he says, "Oh you're ok baby, go on in." I was like hmmmm... don't know how I feel about that one... but oh well lol. I guess that old black guy on my birthday was right.
Him: "Have you ever gotten hit on by black guys before?"
Him: "Oh well you better be. Because you have EVERYTHING they want."
Me: "Ummm... ok?" *Looking over to see Dave, who was supposed to be watching out for me, laughing his head off*
Yeah, just a harmless old guy, it was funny though.

I really want to know what is running through his head right now. Maybe he's doing all of this for the attention (which really doesn't seem like something he would do). Maybe he really can't make up his mind. But come on. The Packers gave him how many chances to get out of retirement? Even after he announced it way back when, with the tears and all, he let Green Bay know that he didn't want to retire, and McCarthy and Thompson were prepared to go down to Mississippi and bring him back. Only to recieve another phone call to say that he had changed his mind again, and was going to stay retired. Ok, now he's just being a Diva. Seriously, he needs to shut his mouth and stay retired! To even consider going to another team, that's what makes it even worse. As much as I love the man, and totally respected him, with this whole episode, he is losing a ton of my respect. A lot of people have said that they would hate the Packers if they don't bring him back. Sure, I'd hate them in the fact that he would then go to another team. But in this situation, as sucky as it is, I am really starting to dislike Favre.

Me and Gianna... what a little doll :) I was one of the few who got to hold her, she didn't get passed around much. And I didn't get to hold her for long before she started crying... lol. But at least one of us is cute! haha.

Our cable was finally cut :(. So that means we have a grand total of 1 channel. ABC, so that's not so bad.
But overall... other things are getting better. I'm not thinking quite so much, and just starting to accept what happened and to move on with my life because hanging on it isn't going to help. Michael and I still talk... we play cribbage online sometimes (Weird, I know, but I taught him to play and he's bound and determined to master the game... I think he has after beating me for like 8 games.. sad.)
I bought some yarn and I'm working on a blanket. Something to keep my mind and hands busy... my nails are finally getting somewhat long! At least, long for me... don't compare them to my sister's... lol.
So, pictures of my apartment :)
Other side of the living room
Cute little bathroom lol.
Living room/"dining room" table
Woohoo! I have a closet! Although it's messy... lol.
My "bed" lol
Julie's (the girl I'm subleasing from) chair and my tv stand/where I put all my crap lol.
Living room from my room. And my lonely Brett Favre poster that never wants to stay up lol.

I feel like sometimes talking about it helps. But then it starts to hurt all over again. I am trying not to sit here and wallow in my self-pity... but it seems to be happening. I can't stop thinking of what happened. How I thought it was going great... but things just changed so fast.
I thought I was over it. I guess not.
Well. Waking up in 5 hours is going to be fun.

So yep. I'm single again. Long story, but I think we're better off this way. I did love the conversation I had at graduation with Grandma and my aunt Sarah.
Grandma: So how's your Michael doing? Sarah did you hear about Allison's Michael?
Sarah: Yeah! I am so happy for you!
Me: We broke up.
Ohhhh yeah talk about making me feel good. But yeah, basically it was mutual I suppose. Haven't really talked to him since. Funny how fast things change, isn't it?
But yes, it's 12:30 am. And yes, I am stealing someone's wireless. Hey, can you blame me? I'm not liking this not having the internet thing. I think ours is supposed to be hooked up by Friday, so that will be nice. But I am going home for Aaron's party on Friday.
Anywho... I think it's time for bed... nighty night.

So my boss asked me all the days that I wanted off this summer, so I took off my birthday, and that's about the only day she said she could give me off since it wasn't on a weekend. Camping 4th of the July weekend with the family? Nope, that's Riverfest. Helping prepare for Aaron's grad party? Nope, it's a weekend. Going to Ohio with Michael for his sister and brother-in-law's retirements from the Army? It's a possibility. I thought that was the whole reason I made that list, so I could get the days off that I wanted. I mean I didn't ask for more than 10 days off the whole summer. "It just all depends on when the new people want off!" Umm... hello, and who's been working there longer? Ugh, but whatever.
Last day of classes is coming up soon! May 16th! I am so ready for this semester to be over, it's been tough, and am definitely looking forward to taking classes I actually want to! Don't remember if I said this, but I officially declared my minors. Psychology Major with a Sociology Minor and a CYCE (Child/Youth Care Emphasis) Minor. Sound smart? Or stupid? lol... we will see...

Then all the preparations for the LASO Fiesta, ok so I don't have to do that much, but still. How come the white girl had to be secretary last night? lol. And trying to keep up with my friends who apparently aren't telling me their plans for tonight. Oh well, if they tell me, I'll go out with them. If not, I'll stay in and work on midterms. Maybe I should just go spend my Friday and Saturday nights in the library. Lame eh?
Still trying to figure out what I want to do this summer. One of my friends said she'd be willing to sell me her car, we'll see how much her parents want to sell it for. My hopes are that I can stay up here and take classes, and work while I'm at it. Don't know if I can live on campus without taking classes, but my friend also said that I could live with her and split rent if I needed to, so that is definitely a possibility. And need to look at the costs of summer classes here and decide if I can afford it or not...
Hmmm so holy long entry. If you read that, you're getting a cookie... Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Mint sound good?

So yesterday, it was absolutely GORGEOUS outside. I think it got up to like 45 or something like that... I hardly needed my coat! (No Kyle, I'm not crazy, seriously, it was a heatwave!) And then last night... it started raining, which then turned into snow. Crazy Wisconsin weather. But you have to love walking to your classes on a nice sheet of ice... Rape Alley was HORRIBLE (and I know that's horrible that we call it rape alley, it's just a path between two buildings that's really dark and creepy at night). I could tell they put salt down, but it didn't help much.
Otherwise... life is good I guess. Trying to work something out, and hoping everything will work and it will turn out to be awesome... but on the other hand, I really don't want to get my hopes up so... we'll see I guess.

Edit: Ok so the guy that used the 5 washing machines was pretty cute... soooo... ;) haha. And nice smile too :)
Ooo but this morning I did wake up and look outside, and we must have gotten a little bit of snow, because it was all sparkly and pretty and I was like awwww :)
So yeah.. but other than that... still busy. Still trying to decide what to do about my job and such... so yeah. Just trying to not get too stressed out or anything... but I don't even have weekends anymore... so yeah.
Sunday, February 17, 2008
My boss (ok so he's not even really my boss, he's my boss's husband) has been a totally jerk to me lately. I mean, the man won't even look me in the eye when he talks to me, and can go from smiling to being in a pissy mood... I hate it. And telling me that if I don't sell enough stuff, they won't make enough money. And that doesn't make him happy when they don't make money. And when they don't make money, they're aren't any wages, "and you wouldn't want that, now would you Allison?" UGH! My friend's roommate worked there, and he made her cry the first day! She only lasted two weeks there, and I see why!
But my roommate and her friend are watching a movie, and I'm hoping it'll be done soon... I'm ready to sleep... sleep and not wake up. Bah.

Thursday, January 31, 2008
First of all, today was the 4 year anniversary of the death of my two friends Steph and Tilah. And I didn't realize it until about 7 tonight. So besides feeling sad, I was feeling incredibly guilty.
So the conversation with Bob (name changed to protect the preachy) started out normally. Until I brought up church. Said I was stuck in a rut, and maybe the reason I'm not comfortable attending church right now is because I don't agree with everything being said. Namely gay marriage and abortion. And so Bob goes back to gays and asked what I believe. I said that I believe that no person has any right to tell any other person what to say or do, so why should anyone tell them who to love? He then proceeded to pull out his Bible and throw me a verse from Corintians where it says homosexuality is a sin. And I listened. He told me about a psychology book where a gay man was "cured" of being gay, and I told him that was complete and utter bull crap. And so then he told me to prove my believes. If I could find something somewhere written that proved what I said, he would then listen to my argument. I proceeded to tell him that I could not prove my beliefs because they are in my heart, and I do not need a book to tell me in my heart what is right and what is wrong.
By then I was clearly upset, on the brink of tears, and he told me again that if I was willing to prove it, he would listen, but not otherwise. I told him then that I did not want to talk about it anymore, and he left.
And basically yeah. Right now I'm upset/mad/I don't even know what. But I can't sleep. And I have to get up in oh... 5ish hours?
It's just frustrating. Obviously I care a lot more about this than I thought.
Wednesday, January 30, 2008
I didn't even have to go to work yesterday because the weather was supposed to get bad. Which was nice, but then again, I didn't get paid. Don't have to go in until Saturday... but that means I will have about 5 hours on my next pay check... woo 35 bucks!
But anywho. Off to stats! Then History... then Philosophy. Woo!
Sunday, January 27, 2008
I worked today too, found out that my hours were cut a lot for next semester, maybe 11-15 a week. Which hopefully won't be too bad, especially with my class load. But we'll see, I can always ask for more.
Classes start tomorrow, which is always interesting... got all my books... 11 of them... 5 of which are for Philosophy! Thank goodness we don't have to buy them!
And hmmm... really no new news. Other than I have to work every Saturday from now to the end of February, and every other Sunday. So much for sleeping in.
Well... I'm thinking it's bedtime soon.... hopefully? Gotta get up at 6:45 tomorrow... ehh...

Break hasn't been too thrilling, as always. I guess I'm really kicking myself [and I think that mom's about ready to kick me, too] for not becoming a seasonal worker at the nursing home so I could at least have something to do while I'm at home. Ready to get back to school... get on some sort of schedule.. and start working again.
I'm trying to save for a car. I should have some money left over after my scholarship, so then I'll have about $1400 saved. I think that if I want to stay at school this summer, a car is almost a necessity. The buses don't run as often during the summer... so I would probably be getting to work an hour or so early.. and that's not going to work because my boss doesn't seem to understand the concept of me having to ride the bus, even though I've told her.
I want to take classes too... and there are 3 summer sessions, so if I take classes for at least 2 of the 3... that should be good. I am hoping too that maybe they'll offer Pre-Calc so I can retake it and get a better grade, because ANYTHING has to be better than a D!
But yeah... lol. I go back on the 26th. A long break...
