life happens

Thing that are new in my life:

  • School! I am attending SLCC and I couldn't be more excited about it. I'm thrilled to be learning and using my brain again. I've been out of high school for 6 years and that large gap of time coupled with a few mind altering substances have left me starting out in a 7th grade level math. Hello Pre-Algebra. It's ok though. If that is where my level of knowledge is at, then that is the class I should be in. I'm also taking geography (earths surfaces and environments) and i'm so freaking jazzed about that!! I love the Earth and mother nature. Even though natural disasters like volcanos and earthquakes and tsunamis terrify me I can not wait to learn about them. I'm so happy that my parents are giving me the opportunity to return to school and learn more and get out of my dead end job. As my dad says "This is a means to an end" and I find comfort in that.
  • Also new is the part where every Monday when i'm driving to work I start to cry and wish that I could quit and work on a farm taking care of animals instead.
  • I just finished the book Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is concerned about what they're putting in their bodies or the environmental effects of factory farming. Or just to anyone who likes a good read. I am starting The Hunger Games next as per the Northrups suggestion.

Things that are the same in my life:

  • Cats are fat and happy. As lovable as ever.
  • I'm over summer. I've been over it since the day it started. I need to live somewhere that has light jacket weather all year long. And no wind. Where might that be?

Life is good. Here are some photos of the recent times.

better late than never?

Happy Anniversary to the coolest parents in the world.

Thirty-Two years is a long ass time. Both my mother and father are the most patient, genuine kind hearted people I've met in my short life. If you know them, you know this to be fact.
I am so grateful for the example of unconditional love they set for us. I hope someday someone will love me that much!!
