How embarrassing!

I caught myself reminiscing about something from almost a year ago. It brought a smirk to my face. At the time, however, it wasn't so funny.

David and I were "dating" [that time before the gf/bf thing] and I was at Memphis. We had a date to meet for coffee before my second class. I had gaps between my classes then too. I was so excited to see him.

I got my coffee [I don't think he got anything] and we sat down. We were talking [still nervous and getting to know each other]. I remember how cute he was then too. :)

Well, he decided to try and sample my drink [hold the "Eww!'s"], but happened to knock it over instead. ALL. OVER. ME. Keep in mind I still had classes afterwards. Well, bless his heart, he got up and got me napkins. I couldn't move. The coffee was leaking underneath the seat I was sitting in and onto my butt. I was mortified that I would have to be seen with "wet-pants". The people around us already knew what had happened and kind of minded their own business, with slight giggles. It wouldn't have been as bad if I still carried extra clothes in the car and if there hadn't been a banquet going on only a few feet from us.

Poor David. I think he might have thought that I wouldn't want to ever see him again after that! I kinda hinted that I was pissed.....not as subtly as I'd like to have. I asked him to find me the nearest bathroom--QUICK!

I went the rest of the day smelling like a huge pot of coffee. There could be worse things. Thankfully, there wasn't too much staining on my pants [everything came out in the wash].

Thus the story of my introduction of David to my coworkers and mom. I haven't let him live it down. I happen to think it was :)

Any embarrassing stories you'd like to share?

*Sadface* :(:(:(:(:(:(

I don't know what it is lately, but I've been really depressed. I know a few things that have caused it, but overall, it's like I can't get my mind off of them.

It might have alot to do with the weather, but it's been going on for a while. I just want bright sun-shiney days, warm weather, and my creativity to spark.

I wish I could do more with David. These days it just seems like we're confined to dinners and indoors. There's not much to do around here, anyways.

School, doesn't really help either, but I'm figuring that I might just have one more semester [including one course over the summer--if it's allowed].

Some good news, my best friend from England from my British school, Cara, found me on Facebook. She's going by Rose now [her middle name]. It's really just now dawning on me how neat the site really is. I haven't seen or spoken to her in well over 12 years.
She still looks the same.

[I'm fiddling....]

I'm ready for a vacation, warmth, and more time to spend with David.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to be ABSOLUTELY miserable this semester. My schedule at school is depressing. I have Monday's 5 1/2 hour gap between my TWO classes for the day......then Tuesday's [today] strategically laid out positioning consisting of a 1 hour and 20 minute gap between classes one and two and the 2 hour and 20 minutes between classes two and three.

Wednesday, I come up here for ONE class [10:50-12:50].

Thursday's back to that same hour and 20 minute empty void between the one and two.

I seriously need a way to manage the gaps. Hopefully, once classes pick up, I'll have projects to do and that will occupy my time. David will be here on Monday's and Wednesday's, but that's it. I have to be jealous of him staying at home Tuesday's and Thursday's [with the exception of one class he has 8 minutes from his house at another campus location]. This sucks.

Thankfully, it snowed a little on the way here [I'm sitting in an empty classroom right now]. I love snow. I especially love watching it fall. I DO NOT, however, enjoy cold weather. Thus, I'd rather be indoors sipping hot chocolate watching the [hopefully] mounding snow, anxious for campus closings.

We'll probably get that blizzard on a Friday and it'll be a total waste.

I'm so ready to graduate ["again"] and move on back to the U of M.

On a lighter note, since I'm ranting. I'm still hopeful that one day things will look up [financially]. Here's praying I get a call.

Still need to clean my room.....
1.5 hours.

And the winner is.....

[Thank you, Shelly for drawing....]

I'll start designing soon. I'll try to get them to you before school gets hectic. Let me know if you have any ideas already in mind, or if you'd like me to surprise you.

School's officially begun. I went to my first two [of five] classes yesterday....for the syllabi.

I'm kinda nervous about how everything will pan out, what with school and working and trying to maintain time to spend with David, family, and friends. I'm hoping our relationship doesn't suffer. I know he's a great guy, but not being able to see each other is going to be hard on us.

I've gotten back into th habit of cleaning again. Trust me when I tell you it's been a long time coming. I'm an addict for artistic supplies, scrapbooking ANYTHING, and a natural pack-rat. I keep just about anythiong you could imagine. Thankfully, nothing but my suitcase is under the bed. organizing all my scrapbooking supplies and ephermera is KILLING me. It's what's taking the longest and making me look at the giant heap and just saying "No." I usually end the night defeated.

THANKFULLY, on a good note, I've been attempting to drink one bottle/glass of water a day. I've succeeded for about a week now. I know, it's only a bottle, but still, it's a milestone for me.

I need to start working out and tanning again. It's only now occuring to me that my matabolism is starting to catch up with me. It really does show.
As for tanning, I look better with a little extra help.

I'm awaiting Valentine's. I'm super stoked to surprise Dave somehow. Plus, our one year's approaching too. I'm anxious. I have to figure out something cool without him figuring it out. Even if I did, he reads this [occasionally], so it's best to keep it hush-hush.

I hate my room. :(

I'm feeling rather generous....

My New Year's Resolution is obvious, trying to become organized. I've been inspired by a few cool Etsy shops.

"Against the Grain" [cool wooden lightswitch covers! :)]

"Desk Diamonds" [awesome organization for your desk....and really stinkin' cute].

So this brings me to my topic....
What's your New Year's Resolution?

Hopefully, to get some responses, I'll offer this.....
At the end of your post, challenge me to create something [i.e. mini book, tag, painting....whatever]. If you're chosen, not only will I post the product I create, but I'll GIVE IT TO YOU!!!!! I'll post a winner next week.

Woo-hoo! Happy New Year!!!!! :):):)

P.S. I might take me a little while, so bare with me.

Happy New Year!!! [!]

I can't believe that it's already a new year. It's crazy.

I also cannot tell you how influential this one man has been in my life. He's put up with alot, and I can only pray that he'll see me through everything. He's incredible. He is the only person who can deal with my mood swings and confusion. When I don't know what to do, he's there to help me find a solution. I love you with all of my heart. I will never let you go.


This is me today.

I'm undergoing a MAJOR room makeover. Trying to turn this:

into a art/exercise/yoga nook. I'm not sure just yet, except that it will be CLEARED!!!

It's crazy....

OH! David bought two new ciclids for the tank at the house he shares with two roomates. Mike [his -male- best friend and roomie] killed a few by messing with the water and....yeah. Meet Bandit

and Midnight.

Bandit is "mine". I told David I liked him and he should get him, and what does a great boyfriend do? Well, he opted for my precious blue over a yellow and black striped one. I was shocked! Seriously, because he wanted the yellow and black one. I told him I'd buy it for him......I have yet to follow through. =X

I need to get back to cleaning. It's taking me a while....I'll post pics of my *NEW* room when I'm done. Then I'll have to decide on colors to paint. I'm so excited. :):)

P.S. David cheered me up the other day with these.

I was kinda mad at him. They helped....A LOT! He said he hadn't bought me flowers in a while because he was waiting on tulips. Ugh...I can't be mad at that. Grrr...

P.P.S. Here's some teasers of the "things I was making". They turned out to be for my lovely friend, Michelle.

P.P.P.S. PLEASE, someone buy me this!!!!
