You know it's true!
Okay....maybe I'm not a "bad" blogger per se....just an irresponsible blogger.
I'm done with school [.:****:.] <--that's confetti falling!!!
Now I'm just oh so patiently waiting for the transcript people to decide to stop placing my future on hold and finally make the guy wrenching decision to do their jobs and send in my transcripts..really.
I finished up July 28th, and it's now September 10th.....no State Boards for me yet!
Although they so GRACIOUSLY accepted my $330.00 they neglected to mention that "Oh, we know you freaked out that you might not have the money and had to have a yard sale to afford it...but, honestly...you could have just relaxed a little because it's gonna take 50 years for your school to get off their a$$ and do their part."
Picture time (since this is still supposed to be a photo blog right?)
We went on vacation :) Here's a photo of us in front of the Titanic museum!
Just for the record this is the 5th take....it took 4 before I could get him to smile.
Boys are weird.

- I inserted my facebook badge, although I'm pretty sure anyone who reads already has me on facebook-as that's how I rangle in most of my peeps.
- I find it humorous that I spout out things like "freelance photography" in my about me but then my pictures are terrible....let mamma "esplain somtin to jou." Most of these random pics are taken with my Droid, as I have a horrible memory and can't remember to tote my camera along, and although the Droid is aaawwwwweeeessssooooome I don't really feel that it qualifies as major camera equipment. So, I felt the need to at least prove that I can take a good picture. That's why you'll see the PICASA gadget at the top of the screen with some of the pics I've taken that I feel most proud of. Don't be afraid to click on it, it's not secretly a crazy ad for penis-enlargement pills.
- I also changed my profile pic, yawn. But I felt like 2 things didn't really make a good list so I had to mention SOMETHING else that I had changed, even if it was insignificant.
So there you go, I did something with my life, aren't you proud of me????
P.S. I can't believe I almost forget the obligatory photo-with-every-post rule.
Here's one of my favorite "real photography photos." You'll find it on the PICASA gadget as well.
The bloggin' feva.
3 posts in three days. WHOOOAAAAAAAAAAAA.
Anyway, now that I'm finished patting myself on the back, lets move on shall we?
It's [almost] spring time, and the warmer days are sprinkled in among the bitter cold and wind that is March, I've noticed a trend among Richlandian [real word, google it] teenagers and it is this:
hanging out on bridges near the railroad tracks.
Is this new or have I just been sheltered??? It seems like the warmer it gets the more I see this. They're so "angsty" too! They always stare at you as you drive by like they want you to ask them "why" they choose to sit on the side of a bridge by a sewer treatment plant. As if you should know? Or maybe they just want a hug?
Riddle me this Batman,
What's better than getting stopped by a train and being stared at by angst-ridden teenagers??????

Nothin' crazy! It's just that the fondant to beat all fondant cakes deserves it's own post, that's all!!
Instead of rambling about the fondant-to-beat-all-fondant....I SHOULD be studying for the test-to-beat-all-tests. But I'm not.
My brother came in to visit a few weeks ago and although I wish I could have seen him more it was still fun as usual!
I found photos from the last time he visited, back in January when we celebrated his Christmas since he was unable to join us for ours!
It's possible that my family may disown me later :)
So first, It was family poker night :) I ♥ getting screwed out of money by my one and only family.
This is where I noticed my brother and I are weird. Well, Not really-Ive known that for years.
So what if I swore it would be a weekly update?!!?
I laugh at you for underestimating my procrastatory powers!!
Is that a real word?
What's been going on????
That's why I haven't blogged [ But that's an awful excuse, you say?]
Well....I didn't think you'd want to see pictures of the four places I've been spending all my time: random roads since I've basically been living in my car, my bed- which looks the same every morning and night [unmade], work [I'm pretty sure privacy laws prohibit that,] and although my new instructor is a nice man, he probably wouldn't appreciate me snapping random photos during class. So that's that.
I made a CAKE! Finally something to POST!
And it was awesome.
Dustin's birthday was the 17th (YEP!!!! He was a ST. PADDYs BABY!) I had to work nightshift the night of the 16th and had class the evening of the 17th so we celebrated on the 18th. I know...it's all my fault right?
so as my penance for not allowing my wonderful husband to celebrate on his ACTUAL birthday....
I made this!

Okay!!! So now that THAT'S over with......
Lets move on to the topic of the day:
We all have those photos (who now thanks to the beautiful invention of the digital camera we can delete) where we are making the "when the heck did I have one eye shut my tongue hanging out and my head tilted like that" face.
YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!!
The "bad picture face."
BUT! What if it's not taken on YOUR camera??? Then, oh no! Someone else is in charge of deleting your unflattering pose!! What do you do?!?!?! You beg them....but they say "but it's such a good picture!!"
You look more closely....it IS an awesome picture.................of them.
Everyone has that friend, the friend who will post the awful picture of you, claiming you look fabulous when it's obvious you do NOT, all because it's an awesome photo of THEM. They're either not courteous enough to do the crop or not technologically educated enough to know how...
So there it is....the bad picture face; posted for all 239,485,759,834,879,587 of his/her friends to stare at.
Then they tag you. [Tag/Untag war starting.....NOW]

School sucks!!! I've been working on that instead of blogging mindless things about celebrities and this ghost town that I reside in fondly known, by some, as "Richvegas."
Trust me...I would much rather be on here or trying to obtain a new PINTO horse on farmville [dork] than doing 90% of the things that I've been doing for the past few weeks! AAAH [stressed!!!!!]
What have I been up to.....hmmmm. Thanks to SNOW...not much.

[^secretly loves roosters]
But for serious, really!!!!! Hubby and I decided we wanted Chinese for din-din; as I am too obese and lazy to cook after getting up at 5am that morning. We enter Happy Family to find a LINE!!!!! [WHAT?!?!?!?!?!!] Since when in the history of Richlands has there ever been a LINE[!] to eat at a Chinese place!?!?! WOW! If that doesn't tell you the extreme deliciousity [fake word alert!!!] of this place then nothing does. Anyway, the adorable hostess tells us it will be "few more minute!!!" [loooove it!] So we decide to kill time at a local department store, I won't name the name.
ROOSTERS..........EVERYWHERE.....or in the words of Carl Malone...."evurwur"
Rooster clocks, rooster napkins, rooster placemats, sweatshirts, coffee cups, curtains, tableclothes, salt and pepper shakers, teapots, and even ceramic roosters [so majestic.]
I felt surrounded by roosters...
That's when one of them made their move!!! Death by Rooster!

Yep.....that's the Wikipedia definition of "cheeseburger..." I don't know what's more awesome....the fact that there's a definition on Wikipedia, that someone thought to PUT it on Wikipedia, or that such a simple definition has a word like "portmanteau" in it. You really think if the poor soul doesn't know what a CHEESEBURGER is that they'll know what the hell "portmanteau" means??? [I don't know what it means but I think it may be how a douchebag says "combination."] And while I don't want to meet the moron who asks "what's a cheeseburger?" I DEFINITELY don't want to meet the jackass who says "I dunno!! Lets check Wikipedia!!!!!!!"
I bring this up because, I Googled "cheeseburger.." because I WANT ONE [watching what you eat SUCKS]...and was going to put a picture on here....and was met with the Wikipedia definition of "cheeseburger." Thank GOD for Wikipedia!!!! Now I can get an asinine detailed definition of the food I shouldn't be eating if I expect to be less large than a blimp come this summer! Yes!
So here's my darn cheeseburger.
P.S. I'm well aware that my "photo-a-day" thing is becoming a little inaccurate....haha! I'm bored and thanks to some computer issues I'm unable to snap my pics and post them the way I want. I don't think my two or five readers are really too upset about it anyway!
And I'm on an LOLcats kick right now.

I like to think of my wedding as an awesome party where everyone celebrated my new awesome life. However, it also pains me to think about how "simple" everything was then as well....
I was spoiled. I worked...and I went to school. And I didn't have to worry about anything. I'm sure it didn't feel that way at the time; but then again it never does, does it? School was school, work was something I did to afford the things I wanted, not really a necessary evil, and all the people I loved were exactly where they belonged...right here with me.
Too much changes in time. Within two months of my wedding I lost lost two people whom I loved dearly, within seven months the tally was up to four. The spoiled little princess who had everything she wanted and all those she loved within arms reach finally got to feel true loss. It changes people. Not just me, most definitely. There are those who were changed far more than myself, their loss hit even closer to home. When a family goes through such loss and tragedy they either band together or drift apart. We banded together....but eventually the ties were frayed, distance forced it's way in and everyone went their seperate ways to deal as best as they knew how.
No one person deals with grief in the same way...
[I told you it was a downer.]
being an adult=sucks big time.
I want my old life back, when everybody was happy, having a baby was a teeny hill to climb-not a mountain to traverse, Christmas wasn't depressing, there wasn't a hole in our family and the only problem I had was making my Jeep payment.
Dear Father Time, please consider my request. Sincerely, ME.
HOWEVER! I refuse to end this on an irritating/sad note. The last few years have also given me many gifts! I have a promising career, I've grown so much mentally and as a person. I've learned to take up for myself in my professional AND personal life and have a cute little family going here (yes, I count my puppies as family.) I've also grown in faith and understand that GOD has a plan....and just like a puzzle I may not see where the jagged pieces fit in until it's almost finished. I've learned to love my family and friends while they're here today and always say I Love You!!! I refuse to let my losses overshadow or out-weigh my gains in this life.
What a sad little bloggaroo....maybe I'm just depressed because I have to get up at 5:00am to go to clinicals...and I'm burned out, tired, and don't want to go?

I want a dang tattoo!
One should always consider the risks and benefits of inking their body permanently; always think for a considerable amount of time before marking themselves, etc.
I think 10 years is a good amount of thinking time, right?
[cue my husband grimacing.]

I'm always intrigued by people who express their innermost emotions and deepest rooted opinions by wearing them on their chest. No, I'm not talking about "You can't Afford This," "spoiled," etc, etc...Because I can't stand those....really, I can't.
I'm talking about things like this:

When I was in kindergarten we sang a song called "America the Beautiful," and I loved it! I loved it SO much that it apparently inspired me! I went home that afternoon and as soon as possible promptly asked my mother this: "When are WE going to move to America?"
YES, I did.
NO, I'm not stupid-I'm just unobservant, PAINFULLY unobservant.
I also take this as evidence that my trait of being painfully unobservant started young in life and has only grown worse since then; and also that my mother has always been incredibly patient with me.

My photo for the day is this:
MY GRADUATION APPLICATION!!!! WOOOOOOOOO!
I will finally have a BSN! THANK you Jesus, you are more than blessing me right now! You have shown me that the end is in sight!
Now....I won't say that I'm even close to being finished as I don't actually graduate until August. BUT, I'm sooooo excited because now when people ask me "When will you be finished with school" my answer is now "In August" and I no longer have to add the "of 2010" to the end of that sentence. I'm doing well and everyone says that the last two semesters fly. BUT------you remember after you came back from Christmas break your senior year of High School and you didn't want to do ANYTHING????? Yup.....that's what's going on right now. I'm trying to pull out those last remaining shreds of energy that I have in order to absorb as much as possible; plus, there's still State Boards after all of this. YUCK....another story entirely.
This 'blogger' is a 'two-fer'
My additional photo for this day is to:
WISH BIG BROTHER A HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!! He's old now...haha. :) He's also leaving today to go back to Norfolk, and I'll miss him terribly as I'm sure the rest of my family will as well.
Not much of a tell-all....but I'm also sleepy. Goodnight to all and hopefully, when the snow goes away my life will get a little more interesting!

So i'm doing it on here. (well, KIND of!)
I'm not going to take all of the credit.....
I SAW an idea on facebook (imagine that) of keeping a photo-journal of sorts.
I take a photo every day and then tell the story behind it.
Love the idea? Do it too! It will be sooo much fun if a large group got into it!
I'm lovin' it myself although I'm wondering how long it will take before I crap out hahahaha! I guess we'll see! So....lets get started shall we!
This is CHARLIE!!!!! and my wonderful husband
Charlie kind of worked his way into the family, Dustin was helping his mother and was in the basement with the outside door wide open....this little fella just came wondering right in! It was about 28 degrees outside and it was freezing rain out. So Dustin, whose heart is too-too big when it comes to animals, brought this little fella home!! We had the best of intentions on finding him a new home and giving him to a family that would love him! So.....that was 2 months ago hahaha! Although, we have made a bit of a breakthrough on finding him a new home (we have one person who's 'supposedly' stopping by any day to 'take a look') he's still living with us for the moment. So! If you know of anyone looking for a lovable clumsy little oaf of a pup....Charlie's your guy...erm....dog. What-have-you.
That was fun!
