Subject:holy crap do i need to update
Time:5:22 pm.

i should apologize for my lack of postage...however...i will try my hardest to get better.

life is actually going really well, my health is good, ivan and i are getting along (for the most part), romeo is losing his teeth, his innocence, and when we get back from florida, his manhood.  Family is doing well, and school is good..for the most part.  I have to admit driving to Aurora three nights a week next semester is going to be rough, especially since i will also be working two jobs.  Plus, my advisor has changed the rules on me--i was trying to substitute one of the classes that i have already taken to make up for a class that Aurora wants me to take--which kind of sucks.  But in other news, working at Starbucks has been really good for me.  It gets me out of the house, away from my parents, away from the carnival and i love being busy!!  Our new store opens up on Friday (which I shall be working 6am-1pm--oh fun)  And then when i get back from Florida, on mondays I will probably be opening at 4:30am...even better!!  But I truly am excited.  I think that I have potential with them...even though it might not be the best job, i move fast and my manager loves it--or so i hope.  Now, if only i could get all the drinks down.  

Other than that...i have no real complaints, i am just reading to get out of Chi-town for three weeks.  I am so sick of the cold.  Ivan and i are talking about moving to either North Carolina, Arizona, or Florida after I finish my Masters (so either in 2010 or 2011) which is a bit sooner than we thought, but Ivan wants to work on his golf game, and i want to be warm.  But, it just depends on how the house market goes.

well i hope everyone is safe....love you all!! miss you all too!!!

Subject:friday
Time:9:04 am.

so over the summer i had a breast cancer scare.....i found a lump in my breast which turned out to be nothing thankfully.  However, i am going to have it removed tomorrow.  Which scares the craps out of me--b/c they have to put an IV into me and then they are putting me under.  So my mom told me to drink lots of water to make my veins less constrained (er whatever) but I have to stop drinking water after midnight tonight and stop eating at ten tonight.  (the eating won't bother me--it's just i like to drink whatever)

so anyway....that's my dilemma....

small update--i started my master's program on tuesday and i have a good amount of homework already.  Part of me is excited, but the other part of me is worried b/c from tomorrow until saturday i will probably be out of it.  although right now i am not really feeling in it.

Steph--sorry about your job situation...i can't believe how underappreciated journalism is.

Subject:jobless
Time:4:35 pm.
oi vey....

being married does have its up and downs...but life has been good for the most part, however, searching for a job has been extremely difficult I have been coming up empty handed for about three weeks. I have applied for about 15 jobs and have yet to hear anything. Plus, NIU lost my GRE scores so I will not be going there this fall. I also applied to Concordia but they haven't helped me out as much as I thought they would--and classes already started.

ok...that's enough of the bitching...

life has also had its up Ivan and I also got a little Romeo...I have tons of pictures I just don't know how to put them up so once I finally figure this thing out I will put up pictures of our little puppy and our wedding (which was gorgeous)

anyway...sorry I have updated very very little I have been extremely busy and don't have regular internet....

i shall write more or post pictures later (hopefully)

Subject:puppy and careers
Time:3:45 pm.
so about two weeks ago someone called me about my resume posted on careerbuilder. i called him back the next day and today he calls me offering me an interview. hold the phone...let's recap the last week

i worked 12-13 hour days everyday last week
didn't sleep for 24 hours sunday into monday
work two 12 hour days tuesday and wednesday
GOT A PUPPY (so therefore got four hours of sleep wednesday into today)

and we're back

so this guy calls and asks if I am interested and i say yes, we he wants me to come in friday or saturday, then when i ask if he has anything else available next week he gets all upset asks me when I am available, I say let me call you back I want to think about this and he says "well I thought you were interested"....long story short I tell him that I was caught off guard which made him more mad and then he told me to forget about it.

anyway ivan and i got a puppy...he's adorable and we're off to the vet

Time:11:02 am.
not a big fan of this quiz...but i took it anyway

The Everything Test

There are many different types of tests on the internet today. Personality tests, purity tests, stereotype tests, political tests. But now, there is one test to rule them all.

Traditionally, online tests would ask certain questions about your musical tastes or clothing for a stereotype, your experiences for a purity test, or deep questions for a personality test.We're turning that upside down - all the questions affect all the results, and we've got some innovative results too! Enjoy :-)

Personality
You are more emotional than logical, more concerned about self than concerned about others, more religious than atheist, more loner than dependent, more lazy than workaholic, more traditional than rebel, more artistic mind than engineering mind, more idealist than cynical, more leader than follower, and more introverted than extroverted.

As for specific personality traits, you are adventurious (100%), religious (90%), intellectual (80%), greedy (64%).

Stereotypes
Young Professional100%
Prep92%
Emo Kid78%
 
Life Experience
Sex15%
Substances8%
Travel15%

Politics
Your political views would best be described as Liberal, whom you agree with around 59% of the time.
  Socioeconomic
Your attitude toward life best associates you with Middle Class. You make more than 0% of those who have taken this test, and 45% less than the U.S. average.

If your life was a movie, it would be rated G.
By the way, your hottness rank is 67%, hotter than 92% of other test takers.

TAKE THE TEST

Subject:eighteen days and countin
Time:8:22 pm.
on Saturday Ivan and I officially got our house. It was great! We started painting, and our kitchen looks like crap and needs a couple more coats of red--but our living room looks amazing. this saturday all of our furniture comes in! I am so excited! I can't wait to be living in mine and ivan's house! but yeah...I can't wait to get married and go on honeymoon! Bah--it's all happening so fast!

Well life is good, just trying to get everything all wrapped up for the wedding. I am excited but sad that it's all happening so fast. And I know that these next few weeks are going to go by even faster. next week I shall be down in skankakee almost everyday, and then the week after that is when ivan's friends get in so we'll be showing them chicago daily!

Anyway...that is all going on by me!

Subject:blah--again
Time:6:30 pm.
Mood: crushed.
"you know what's great about a pickle, it's like a food and a drink" -Raymond, "Everybody Loves Raymond"

I thought I should start with a funny quote, because i am going to be sad.

i tried on my wedding dress today with the bra i just bought in order to where for that day. well--I couldn't zip it up all the way--I finally got it all sucked in--and the tags are still on the dress and the bra--but the point is--

I NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT!!! and i have two months--(funny thing is--i have actually lost weight since i bought the dress, my mom says my weight may have shifted) any ideas? Help--badly--please....

well dearies--please help

Subject:lsat
Time:6:44 pm.
Mood: lethargic.
bah! so...i am taking the LSAT in four weeks--typically you are supposed to study six weeks before you take the test--however, I the procrastinator put it off--and now I am screwed because I just don't want to study--no motivation, once again I hit this wall when I really cannot because I need as much scholarship money available for law school if i ever want to see the doors of Northwestern Law. bah!

anway--i bought the veronica mars soundtrack, i must say i love it! amazing! I have become a bit of a fan...just a bit--i finished the first two seasons--which proves that really instead of watching tv I should be reading, studying, or doing something else besides watching tv.

oi with the poodles--so tomorrow i plan on crashing the library for a good five hours studying, finishing the practice test that i have paid for--therefore i must take it. i spent my christmas bonus on an LSAT test book. way to go wild, right?

i slept horrible last night, becuase i was extremely afraid that I wouldn't wake up in time for CAP--so I was up at 3, 4, 5, and then when I had to get up at 6:15--i am not a morning person. i was playing monopoly with the kids, and I just couldn't add well....it was fairly horrid.

that is pretty much all that is going down here....just waiting to move out--v. excited! only 11 more weeks (or ten) something like that--which also means only 11 more weeks till i am officially married! frightening....but in a good way

Subject:animals and weights
Time:10:53 pm.
my robe almost broke the washer today...my mom would have killed me--brand new washer and my robe almost broke it. think that's weird...it gets weirder--just with animals.

it all started yesterday when i was unpacking my dad's car of all my junk when this squirrel whom my mom is obsessed with came very close to me--seriously, not even an inch away from my foot, the more i backed up--the closer it came, so i ran into the house. came out a second time with food, thinking "ok food will distract and allow me to continue the emptying process" wrong. but seriously, his face was so cute--not an "I am going to attack," but more of a "hey, how are you" However, no matter what face a squirrel wears--I am not one for rabies. So i brought the dogs out with me, and he didn't bother me. Same squirrel last week sunday came up to the back door, but a paw on the door and looked in. very friendly little thing--terrified of the dogs though.

then today, again--in the garage this time getting ready to leave when this dog comes into the garage. at first i backed away very afraid because unless i see a leash, i think of Old yeller when he's about to be shot. *tear* anyway, I walk up to the dog (husky mix) sweetest little thing--skinny as can be. so i bring him into the house because i didn't know how to keep him there, and then I gave him food--never seen a dog eat so fast. I call animal control and they give me the owner's number, and I phone them. So this lady comes to get the dog, and their backyard apparently backs up to ours, and her dog runs away all the time. I guess he was just gone for a little bit--but seriously this dog was skinny! Very cute, very frightened of Harley. Abby likes him (these are my dogs who were in their crates because I didn't know what would happen).

Anyway--that was my day (or two days) and I have to wake up early tomorrow to go look at houses--which I don't want to do--but I don't have a choice.

Goodnight!

Subject:this could be rant
Time:5:27 pm.
Mood: very very very!!!.
so....my editor and our sponsor want to meet with me again. Seriously, I don't know who else they meet with so often. It is so frustrating, I don't understand why I am so special---is it becuase I am the only person on the paper who is not afraid to speak their mind? Also, do they not realize that in 10 days I am done?

frustration would be the only way to describe how i am feeling. my one roommate doesn't know what it means to do dishes--much less put them away. oi vey. just 10 more days....

plus i am going home shortly and will read as much Jane Austen as I possibly can. I love the Dashwoods--who wouldn't?

i also need to register for the LSAT....oi vey. i need money in order to register for it, and to get the study materials...

*deep sigh*

"Like a young Tammy Faye Baker" ahh...

i also need to buy dress suits and etc so i can be prepared for my internship in january and my presentation on Tuesday--i have to defend my senior thesis to the department 8:30 tuesday morning--yikes!!! i am working on the speech/presentation what i am going to say part. i know what i am talking about, i only spent a year and a half working on it.

so...prayers, thoughts, etc....


only thing getting me through right now....i got paid and i am going home with ivan tonight. now i just have to stop myself from buying the first two seasons of Veronica Mars....will power... will power.

enjoy the weekend dearies!

Time:10:57 pm.
Mood: cold.
so i was flipping through channels while waiting for ivan and i paused on TLC and their mostly true stories. There was this story about a family in which the dad was going on a business trip out of town on Christmas eve (which if I was the wife, would be a bit concerned about), and the next morning Christmas morning after her and her daughter opened up gifts the wife decided to light a fire. As soon as she did smoke started coming into the house. So she put out the flames, and looked up....she reached up and pulled out a boot. A santa claus boot (at this point I was hooked and thinking, what?) she gets a flashflight and looks up and begins to pull--and apparently pulls out a Santa claus--who just so happens to be dead..and her husband with a broken neck. so apparently her husband decided to pretend that he was going away but really wanted to surprise them by going down the chimney as Santa Claus....but instead he slipped and broke his neck somehow

sounds like a cover up for murder

i thought i should share that...


anyway--it is literally disgusting outside, freezing rain that literally after 20 minutes will freeze your car doors shut....

it's gross.....so i am inside.

Subject:3 more weeks
Time:6:17 pm.
seriously I cannot believe that in three weeks I will be leaving olivet for good as an undergraduate student. thank the Lord! I have been waiting for this moment for such a long time. I am so glad that it is almost hear.

i finished the 2nd draft of my senior thesis, and if anyone wants to volunteer to read it, please be my guest! I have an English major, another poli sci and history major reading it--and that's it. I've already made my changes--and I must say, I think I am fairly happy with it. I think I will be the most happy once I have recieved a grade. that's typically how it works for me. hopefully the four professors reading it will go easy.

other than that--life is good. ivan and i bought invitations this weekend, who knew that pieces of paper could be so freaking expensive!?! ridiculous! but they are adorable and I am excited to get them and send them out....i am even more excited that the wedding is less than four months away!!!

right now i need a job or something for January until the wedding so I can buy things, such as food, wedding stuff-and pay the mortage that is forthcoming. We are going house shopping again this weekend which will either be fun or depressing. i like everything typically, and whatever i like Ivan doesn't---so onward with the bickering, someday we shall settle down and laugh it, right now--I hope I win. (teehee)(don't tell him i said that) (or wrote that rather)

i only have one more newspaper deadline, three papers, 9 essays, 1 study guide, and 5 tests to go! woohoo! (and trust me, that is not a lot by any means--i had to fill my calender with pictures to make up for the lack of assignments)

well--i am going to work on a resume!
cheers-KT

Dear Mr. Leonardo Dicaprio,

Your South African accent is horrible. Seriously, you don't sound like an Afrikaner, nor do you sound like any other person from South Africa. I am sorry, but you should try working on your accent.

Sincerely,
Kt johnson
