Monday, December 29, 2003

so i worked today.
john swope told me a secret. he and barb love me so when i'm home on break anytime in the future to give them a call and they would love me back. i'm not supposed to tell anyone since it's against restaruant policy because of my lack of working new year's eve. he told me that they dont want to lose me and that definitely call. i said that i hope for an internship this summer and barb said that i could work there too. how nice of them ....hahahaha

Sunday, December 28, 2003

o the pain. an hr and a half later i finsished my 4 small cookies
i took a long nap today. longer than i wanted. i had a bad dream too.
this is what happens when you can't swallow food because you feel like you're swallowing your tongue.

Saturday, December 27, 2003

o i dotn konw if i said but friday morning i went in to set up the oak for sunday brunch. last night when barb told someone else to and there was only one small thing to do he was surprised. i guess when other people set it up they dont do a good job. the one small thing he had to do was get rid of this garbage bag of pine branches. i put it in the bag but people were all over the building so i couldn't take it anywhere.


chesterfields sucks. i called at 9:05 and chris answered the phone. barb wasn't even in yet. i said i wouldn't call back and they had to call me. he didn't know if i would have to work or not. now i can't even fall back to sleep. i didnt think to ask chris if he got my note that i was there Friday night. grrrr
o yea since i wont be there new years eve i dont get to come back after the 1st and before i go back to school
ooo i forgot to post this:

it still hurts a lot to swallow. today i weighed 124.5 a new low for recent times. today seemed really long i think for the lack of food. i ate a stuffed cabbage today before work. i woke up super early and alloted an hr for me to eat it. i almost ran late and over my alloted time. the last hour or so of work i felt like was going to throw up. like i felt like i was gagging quite often. on teh way home it was bad. when i got home i had a piece of cheese cuz my mom had it out. acutally i think i ate two pieces of muenster. then i had 4 slices of bread with butter. that is all. it took me quite a long time to eat. the pain wasn't as bad as at work or this mornign i dont think. it could have been that i was super hungry. i drank skim milk too.


I started at 11 today. the day started off easy. nice easy party of 24 poeple. mrs divorchak's (sp) daughter had the bridal shower. then we had to set up for a 40 at 4:30. i had 2 tables the whole lunch. then aroudn 4:25, judy realized stuff needed done since the banquet servers weren' tthere yet and the party arrived at 4:30. i had to do that and i got new tables. then i had tables in 2 different rooms. dinner was very very hectic. then a table had to wait liek over an hr for their food and said they were so pissed off they couldn't even eat. which they didnt. their dinner and drinks were free. i think they should have tipped me. i was very busy today. i had late tables so others ended up helping with my side work. i feel bad about that. like really bad cuz i always get mad when i have to do stuff for other people. i still need to be tipped out for the party iw as working this afternoon. i worked almost 12 hours today. i made 101 in tips then i tipped out the bar 5 bucks even tho the two bartenders that got me most of my drinks walked out. also tonight a cook got fired because he was drunk and then got in a fist fight with one manager. he did get one punch in to the face of chris. john mcdonald has come to work drunk before but this time he came in sober and ended up drunk. that is quite frightening. after i punched out today i noticed that chris never punched me out yesterday. what a loser. he said he would. now i have to get that straightened out. that's 5.9 hours they need to add and fix.

as i was telling kevin and vinnie that tonight was my last night cuz they wont let me come back after new years eve, john swope (former manager that returned) asked if he could see me when i had a minute. i went over and he asked when i was leaving for Philadelphia and then when i said Tuesday mornign he asked if i could work tomorrow and monday if he needs me.

now tomorrow i have to call at 9am to see if lisa is better or if i have to work for her. which is totally crazy. they should call me. i dont wake up by 9. then on monday he wants me to come in and help decorate for new years eve. well since new years eve is wed i thought he woudl want me in the evening so i would get to sleep in but no he wants me in there at 9am. he wants me in my normal work attire too so that he could use me if he needs me. nobody is even in the place at 9am. i won't show up until at least 9:15 because i dont want to get there and not be able to punch in.

my feet hurt. i'm so tired. luckily i got 8 hours of sleep last night

Friday, December 26, 2003

ok so i didn't go downstiars to eat. i attempted to eat 4 skittles. i put themall in my mouth and about 12 minutes later i swallowed the last bit of them. boy am i hungyry and i'm gonna be tired tomorrow when i wake up so i won't want to eat.
i have this dilema here. should i try to eat or not? i'm so hungry but the pain is so much when i swallow.
i hate chesterfields

i work at 11 tomorrow for lisa

Thursday, December 25, 2003

my grrrr at 10:38 pm last night was because Dave got duplicate presents that i got him and that I hadn't given to him yet. I still haven't given them to him yet.
Christmas pictures are loaded. I wish i had better ones when the family was here. i don't even think everyone is in the pictures.
dave is coming to visit jan 4-10 now

Wednesday, December 24, 2003

i'm tired. i want to go back to sleep. we started opening presents at 7am. i got a bunch of cool stuff. in the middle of opening, i started to feel sick to my stomach. i still feel that way. i had a glass of orange juice.
i work friday 9am setting up. i dont have to wear my white shirt and black tie.
then i work at 5 as a waitress.
then i work on saturday at 5 as a waitress.
that is all i am scheduled.

as of 2 today i was not scheduled at all.
we will see what happens.
averaged 12.52 an hour tonight. i guess that's the best i've had if they fix my other time sheets when i was making 7 an hour instead of the waitress wage.

i was the busiest i've been in awhile though.

everytime i average how much i make it's before taxes. so it is actually a bunch less.


reasons i can't say
i worked today. it was the worst day ever. there were no tables for our first 2 hours there. tables didn't tip good. tables complained because it took awhile for the food. i worked from 2-8:30

Tuesday, December 23, 2003

i made cookies and took pictures of them.


2 hour naps are nice at the time but will ruin u for going to sleep. which then causes u to be messed up again the next day.


visiting the high school was fun. mrs boyd's 7th pd class wouldn't talk. her 6th period class had about 10 kids missing. her 4th period class was small.
we went to kerber's for lunch. the french fries were good and hot. i didn't have ice cream.

Monday, December 22, 2003

so when i'm on overtime after wed they might realize how stupid they were and fix my whole timecard. i bet not though. but there is always the possiblity. then i will be back to not making much again. hehe


chesterfields is so stupid. i was not on the schedule today so all the punching in and out was them. they punched me in when i was at home for 2.73 hours today. they also punhced me in as a banquet server tonight when i even specifically said it had to be server. i even got a second manager to fix it.

btw i am supposed to work tomorrow and i'm not and i still work wed of this week. and so far on my time sheet i'm at 39.95 hours.

i want a big long hug from dave and i can't have one.
i did no cookie bakin and i napped. mom says she is wakin me up at 9am to bake tomorrow.


just got home from work. have to make cookies since i wasn't replaced as the cookie baker. and then go back to work at 5

Sunday, December 21, 2003

totalled 10.5 hours today

then went to denny's for a 3 hour visit.
11-4 i worked brunch. now i'm home. i go back for 5 and work my full shift.

i worked brunch for michelle. she has to finish her christmas shopping. her kids r like 7 and 8 or something . young enough to need to be shopped for on time.

mike's bored and i work all the time. so it seems he is replacing me for cookie baking for christmas.

Saturday, December 20, 2003

10.10 hours today woulda been 4 more if i woulda gone in early liek they wanted. grrr on them
i spent lotsa money on good shoes today. but still lotsa pain.

how accurate?

this was from the 27 question test

Friday, December 19, 2003


with 9 question test.

with the 18 question test.
y did i leave my naproxen at school?


i ate. i'm tired. i'm wakin up early tomorrow.
i worked the naretto buick christmas party today. i worked it last year. mr nareto remembered me. too bad i can'ta remember how to spell his name.
call at 11:30 from chesterfields
"are u comign in"
"i wasn't on the schedule"
"we thought u knew"

so at 12:20 i got there. and they sent me home around 1:45. grrr on them it was pointless. we were pretty busy but leaving after an hr isn't worth it in my book

i work at 6 tonight
3:30 tomorrow
5 on sunday
off monday
off tuesday
wed 2-8
thursday closed

lets c how closely they follow that schedule for me.
o the pain in my elbow. it hurt when i was turnin over and stuff.

my foot hurt bad when i was first walkin today

i already lost 2 lbs since i've been home.

Thursday, December 18, 2003

there's nothin here that i want to eat.

i worked 11.43 hours today. that short cuz i took an hr break even tho they said 20 min.

there's a hole in the ice pack. my plantar fasciitis is back. my foot doesn't look pretty.
i was a server this evening. in a very small section. it was very very very busy and my last table waited over an hour and a half for their food. they gave me a good tip though. maybe it was those free desserts i hooked them up with.

i made 48 bucks in tips after tipping out bartenders and stuff. they kept making me stay later and i had to cash out twice.

kevin asked me out. after my answer then he asked if laurel would go back out with him. vinnie didn't tell me he loved me. laurel must have told him about promise ring cuz he asked about me bing engaged. some other servers had loud expressions after that. i just said it was a promise ring.

i burnt my finger today on a plate.

48 bucks in 7.6 hours would suck if i was making 2.83 an hour like i should have been. but instead i made my banquet server wage on top of that. so $9.14 an hr vs $13.32
but i was there all day so the average of today came out to be $9.20

the last table i had today that had to wait forever told me i should get a new job.

Wednesday, December 17, 2003

i'm tired. i work in 7.5 hours.
thanks to dave pictures
if rpi had the + - for grades i would go up .15 in average gpa. it is a lot different since it's out of 4.

i bought some more christmas presents today.


last night i tried to go to sleep early after falling asleep on the couch. i gave that up after an hour. at 12:30 i began reading. around 5 i forced myself ot put down the book. i have less than 30 pages left. i want to finish. it became so good. i couldn't put it down. i almost read 200 pages last night. for me that is quite a lot. i had a few breaks during my reading time where i thought i woudl go to sleep and put it down. but that didn't last long.

Tuesday, December 16, 2003

we need more phones. we r lacking on our main floor. we had to throw two away. now we are down to 4.

also my mom said that from dec 26 on she's busy (this is because she is getting game cube)
i can't get photo galleries to work from home. so this will have to do. it's what was done to my room

Monday, December 15, 2003

argh grrr argh grrr

my mom ruined my room. i'm going to have to spend hours to get it looking how i want it again. pictures will be posted soon as to what she did to it.


i wanted to make cookies tonight. we didn't have enough sugar for any recipe. i made a list of things i would need. tomorrow i think will be christmas shoppign and also christmas cookie supplies shopping. then bakign in the evening or the next day.

i dont kwno when to call chesterfields.

dave had a rough trip today. flights delayed and changed and loudness at the airport. 4pm flight didnt leaving until 6 and then 6:20 transfer flight still hasn't left yet.
pizza is so much better around here. troy pizza sucks.

daisy is so cute. she tried to give me kisses though. she is spoiled.
i'm home

Saturday, December 13, 2003

62 degrees is too cold for a house to be kept. i put on my hat

still trying to come up with christmas gift ideas.


i just ate beeferoni at the dining room table with the light on. something that never happens here.

dave's so good. yesterday he loaded the dishwasher and turned it one. today he put everything away. such a good boy.

we're going somewhere soon. i dont know where except the bank.

i called home today when i woke up. we talked for awhile. daisy heard my voice and looked at the phone. i figured out what i might get mike for christmas.

i'm still waiting for grades to be posted.
i'm in philly now. i slept late. i came in last night but nobody set up wireless until really late.

Wednesday, December 10, 2003

much food to eat before break so that it doesn't go bad.

i'm angry at myself for not studying. i may think it's impossible for me to get my A. but the possibilities are a lot smaller now that i spent today not studying. 8am test is gonna suck. making this crib sheet is hard too. there are a lot of equations.
ok i lied i'm gettin up to do the dishes now. cuz i dont want to be held up in going back cuz they aren't washed.
OreoFuchi: if he's gonna eat, make him wash

that's right

pb's doing the dishes for the yellow cake with chocolate icing that was slaved over earlier.

lots of laughs

dad always keeps me laughing

Big JCJC (2:22:44 PM): time to feed the dog named Daisy see ya later bye


I finished my strengths final after two hours. if i would have stayed longer i wouldn't have been able to figure out what i was iffy on anyway.

last night i could not fall asleep. i felt like i was spinning when i was laying in bed. my held was going forward in the counterclockwise direction. it lasted well over 20 minutes. i'm gettin a cold and it sucks. i'm nto sneezing all that much yet.

i was tired before. nto so tired now. i get to make a list of what i need to study for physics then hop to it. o i dont want to take it but o i do. i dont know. i know i won't get an A. i dont know why i try. it's just wasting two of my days.

my dad always asks a million questions. the other day i got him and asked him a million questions so he didn't get all his questions in. my posting keeps getting interrupted becuase he keeps talking to me.

Tuesday, December 9, 2003

i added a new picture and had to delete an old one...so now a new default picture for my gallery
i can't fix everything even if i want to. i try. i don't succeed. it isn't fun.

absense makes the heart grow fonder?

sometimes realizing something is quite rewarding. then thinking about it it loses it's appreication when i realize i should have known it the whole time.

strengths final tomorrow. i'm worried. yet i'm not worried. it's luck i think on how partial credit will be awarded. i believe i know the stuff. i am going to look over chapter 10 next since that is the only chapter we haven't been tested on so far. I gotta brush up on Mohr Circle garbage too. I thought i knew that stuff but i'm not sure if i do anymore. too bad i'm not skilled enough to pick up on the hints as to what will be on the final.

Monday, December 8, 2003

and now i feel like i'm spinning it's fun except my jaw hurts too.
some train tickets purchased. leaving here on the 12th at 5:15 pm. staying in philly until the 15th then coming back to philly on the 30th. nothing else pruchased yet.

i dont feel right. my jaw hurts. i've been clenching my teeth. i must not be happy
little things mean a lot whether good or bad
ok i talked maggie into taking the physics final. i'm starting to talk myself out of it. argh
commons might be a possibility today
we'll see

Sunday, December 7, 2003

the classic had a little bit of trouble toinght. all because another car took his earlier spot

the day of rest

yesterday was the day for playing but i did not do that. i rested yesterday. but also today i rested. i half listened to grivas. so studying will have to be tomorrow. i took a nap today after waking up at 1pm. i took lots of pictures of snow. i watched finding nemo today.

Saturday, December 6, 2003

lots of snow today = not worth walking to commons
we got a lot of snow. it'sstill snowing. i got halfway dressed and am lying in bed wondering what to do.

Thursday, December 4, 2003

originally 2 finals on the 11th
both got changed

now one on 10th and one on 12th


test 3 average 67%. none of the professors would have gotten a 100 on it. a few professors say they are changing their teaching styles now to adjust for the course coordinators alterations.

right now i have a B and i think I wont take the final to get an A. wait i might. it was said it will be more like a conventional final in the past. hmmm could i do it? i dont konw. is it worth the stress? i do not know. is it worth at 4 instead of a 3. it is to my mom. i dont knwo if i coudl do it. i need to study for strengths.,

Wednesday, December 3, 2003

Tuesday, December 2, 2003

and i think i choose to not take the physics final unless i like totally fail the physics test tomorrow. i dont know why i keep studying. i thinki quit retaining information about 5 minutes after i started studying. my mind keeps wandering and ied issues arrise and aim keeps me occupied.
ahhh not enough time alloted in the day to do ied AND study for physics.

strengths test = not good and also the TA can't add so i have to go get my extra point.

i burnt my thumb this morning on my curling iron.

Monday, December 1, 2003

i only need to study 66 different areas or things for the physics test.


what are the chances i could get a 100 on wednesday's physics test. if i get 100 on this test i have an A without the final. but i dont know anything at all on our preveiw test. studying i must. o if i get a 60 i still have a B.... so actually studying i don't really have to that much.

i have a lot of ied to do though. i should be a busy bee, but i'm lazy and like TV more.

Saturday, November 29, 2003


today i cut dave's hair and then he cut mine. pretty
2 nights ago we went to empire diner the second night in a row. we got another milkshake. the first night i didn't have my camera so we had to go back to try to recreate our first milkshake.


yesterday was a day of shopping and other surprises.

at outback dave gave me a promise ring. o it's so beautiful. i tried to buy a ring guard at target and kmart but they dont have them. i bought one a long time ago at walmart. i could order one on-line sometime. my knuckles need to not be bigger than the important part of my finger.

i expereienced 2 malls yesterday and multiple stores. we went to kohl's twice. 2 differnet kohl's so it was alright.

my purse broke at payless so i had to get a new one. the zipper came out. the rest of my mall trip had to be done with a broken purse.

at k-mart shenanigans took place.

we bought 2 dozen krispy kreme donuts after target last night. they were 10 bucks. at the train station one dozen was 6.20.

we did do a little christmas shopping. it more like gave me ideas and then i couldn't find the stuff i wanted. i did buy me stuff. i'm wearing some of it now. dave likes all my new stuff. he was an influence on buying it. i like to look pretty for him.

i still have a lot of homework to do and not much time left here at the not poly. i wonder how we are going to get all this stuff ack to the school. carrying it is the hard part.

Monday, November 24, 2003

my stomach hurts and i don't know chapter 8 at all and i have been a slacker at studying and i only studied some of chapter 7 so far and no i have to write my ied report for sunday night instead of later in the week
they shut of my ethernet port becuase of some network bridge my new desktop made.... the internet came back but as soon as we plugged in desktop it went away so dave called someone and talked for a bit.

now i really wish maggie's wireless would work for me.

Sunday, November 23, 2003


stackwyck oven is so inconsistent. the cookies say to bake 10-12 min at 375. anticipating the horribleness i put it to 325. the cookies that burnt the most on top were in for 6 minutes. the cookies that burnt the most on teh bottom were the first batch at 8 minutes. i just had to keep a good eye on the other ones and they still didn't turn out right. not as creamy as normal. possibly the hotness of the oven that ruined them. it is quite sad. the recipe called for 60 and i got 54 out of the deal.

i have no clue how the last tray turned out because i was forced to finish with only the christmas tree lights. so i coudlnt' tell how dark or how light they are. most likely they are too light.

no bakes are a better bet up here

Saturday, November 22, 2003


its pretty blue when it's on. too bad it makes this beeping sound that drives me crazy. the sound has been narrowed down to the motherboard but it's also a voltage problem as to why it beeps. it's late now so more will be tried to be figured out tomorrow. o sooo much to do tomorrow.

work 1-6
40 minutes to install windows

Friday, November 21, 2003

pb likes cats
why do certain things bug me when they shouldn't at all?

this isn't any fun at all... i can't play with my new computer. i'm sort of regretting the lack of flat panel. Also they sent me a different mouse than was pictured. they did put the computer together for me when i just ordered parts.
there's a keyboard error or it's not found........ :( and i don't konw why
new computer set up time. i need a floppy drive
ied exhibition is done

i'm sooooooooo tired

Thursday, November 20, 2003

aren't ied projects wonderful. i'm here at the dcc now working with a few others.

Wednesday, November 19, 2003

i so want to say what's on my mind but i dont want anyone to hate me. it's hard to hold back when he is/was so wrong.

PD1 was good today
in the wonderful world of computer lab monitoring i'm getting dripped on and i dont know how or why

also yesterday i forgot about work from 8-1 today in my plan of events


bj3l33t: also got good news and bad news for you
bj3l33t: the good news is the scr will work for us, the bad news is we dont needthe spark gap anymore, i feel awful cause you really did an awesome job im impressed and kinda sad i have to actually tell you we cant use it

how is that good news. like 10 hours of making my part and lots of planning down the drain

well maybe not ... dave says swersey will like it because it's a fully developed alternate method
"oh my god i'm dead" dave just said that and i agree
my computer monitor is now in Sharp instead of the Common's mail room. but the rest of my comptuer is not here. my credit card was charged on monday. i can't access the page where it lets me check my status tho. that scares me a little

Tuesday, November 18, 2003

i want my computer to come so i can not have it put together until IED is over.
My monitor is here... i havne't picked it up. but y waste space and pick it up now?

i'm excited about playing with it.
i burnt my left index finger today working on IED because I'm a silly goose


my work is never done

so tomorrow my rough agenda:
wake up: 10:45
lunch :11:15
MDL: 11:50
PD1: 2
IED as group: 3:20
dinner: 6ish
IED and other hw

bed: 3AM

gotta love IED
somone else did one thing on my part and they messed up.

Monday, November 17, 2003

if i take the physics final i could get an A and to maintain a B i would only need a 62%.... but last year i only needed a 44 to maintian B so that meant an A was a lot closer and I didn't get that A. decisions will have to be made afther the thrid test i suppose.
dave is so funny. it helps relieve stress.
tonight was dinner with me dad. me pb kate and gravester ate with him. during dinner he kept getting up to look at the steeler game. i'm actually surprised he even agreed to go when steelers are on. at home he would never do anythign when the steelers were on.

Sunday, November 16, 2003

update to october 25 entry: pb's wireless is no longer working :(
update to October 21 entry: i did get an A

i don't know why

i feel like i'm going to cry
i can't optain a network licence for solidworks so i can't use it to finish my assembly for ied
my whole ied group told me to use the stolen drill today. and about 2 hours later i bought one for 14 bucks


my impusle buy was actually a better deal than my previous thoughts of getting a new laptop next year (or senior year) so i'm just saving me money. go me

so i get to work on ied in a few minutes with teresa. fun fun fun. ied is a pain and i dont like how things keep changing.

i worked on strengths for 3 hours earlier and got 5/6 of the assignment done.

my dad's plane is gonna land in about 45 min. then i get to figure out how i was supposed to meet him and then we r going shopping. i hope he doesn't end up going to my dorm before i get there. since i have an ied meetin gat 6

Saturday, November 15, 2003

i just applied for an internship at westinghouse. it's my first actual job i've applied for


i spend too much money. i impulse bought a computer a few days ago. well it should be shipped out on monday to me. i still can't check my order status so i'm not sure what is up. i order the monitor from another company. that has been shipped out and expected delivery is on nov 17th. i'm excited about it all.

ied sucks and i can't take my group. things i've done can't be used.

i'm quite stressed. 24 helps me be not stressed. i love that show. i have 8 more hours to watch in the 2nd season then i can start this season. we will be caught up by thanksgiving.

duct tape is my new best friend.

Friday, November 14, 2003

Wednesday, November 12, 2003

my computer sucks
i dropped social psych for next semester and signed up for writing to the world wide web
i attempted to change my desktop today but couldnt handle the change so i put my old one back that i've had since the day i got my computer

Friday, November 7, 2003

i figured it out
if i get a 100 on the next test and a 100 on the final i will have an 89.9 (if my hw average stays the same)

if i get an 80 on the next test and an 80 on the final i have a 79.9

looks to me like there is no real point in trying that hard. cuz i'm stuck at a B anyway. BUT there is always the hope of a curve...hmmm decisions decisions
i didn't fail my strengths test (the lowest grade was a 60)

never a whole

today my lunch seemed to end with .5 too
1.5 rice krispy treats and .5 bowl of cereal

it's friday and tonight is cooking spaghetti time

Thursday, November 6, 2003


tomorrow i get my strengths test on that i know i did bad on. it's quite scary. they should have just given the tests back on tuesday so they wouldn't be prolonging the agony.

ied takes up so much time. i can't really do that much. i need to help out other people. there isn't much for me to include in my final chapter of our design report. that scares me a little. swersey isn't very good at getting grades and things back to us.
i used to think i would have more A's than B's. now i dont know. I might not even get a B in strengths and it's such a shame because i know that stuff. i think i'm like maggie was last year with iea. she knew the stuff and would just freeze on the tests. strengths is so much like iea. they should have a retake exam like iea did. it would make me a lot happier. at least i know i got an A in my one credit course. i just want a 3.5 is that too much to ask. i bet i'll get an A in psych and the law so that is good.
my physics test last week was bad. a lot worse than i expected. our professor told us after the fact that they made it harder because they felt kids were cheating this year. if i would have known in advance it was going to be harder, i would have studied more. other classes knew it was going to be harder so that isn't quite fair to us. my professor doesn't have a review session either.
I schedule for class in less than four days. i better hurry at deciding what i want to take.

today for lunch i had 1.5 cheese sticks, 1.5 glazed donuts, and half a carrot stick with ranch. go me

i've been sick forever. I went to the doctor's again today. the doctor had to bring in another doctor for a second opinion. they can't really tell me what's wrong. they just said it's an acute sinus infection. they changed what antibiotics i'm on and told me to throw away the other ones i spent big bucks on

the spring 2004 sechule is up so it's classes pickign time. i have to wake up early next semester. it's gonna suck.

Tuesday, October 21, 2003


yup still sick
at work now. nobody is here that's actually in charge. so i believe it is naptime. too bad i'm not that tired. this is a perfect opportunity. i got lots of work to do but sort of not much to do at the same time.

today in psych i practiced my drawing skills. it was fun stuff. but then we had to watch a video and fill out a worksheet so my drawing was put to an end.

ied is a crazy class. i wish i had a better background of things.

programming is done. i wonder if i got that 90 on the final to get an A. even tho i had a 99 on the project and only needed 85 and also had over 100 on homework and inclass but only needed an 80.

Wednesday, October 15, 2003

i think iw ill start to get better since i made a doctor appointment

Monday, October 13, 2003

sat night

514 words so far on my psych essay... but too tired to finish tonight. i wanted to finish and get it out of the way. tomorrow is 6 month anniversary for me and dave. i wanted to have time to spend together. i already have an ied meeting tomorrow at three. the essay is about half done. i wanted to be done so it gets me mad. i am not good at essays. i should have probably taken a break and worked on something else before i got too tired.

i have strengths for tuesday, programming for monday, ied for all the time, and psych essay for tuesday. i already did my physics homework that is all i have completed. i did a lot of ied but that is never complete
i have two finals
posted times:
str - fri 12/12 8-11
phys 2 - fri 12/12 8-11
ied sucks
takes up too much time

must do work

Tuesday, September 23, 2003

i spend lots of time making a crib sheet then everyone wants a copy of it.

Monday, September 22, 2003

i should get a new computer next year!
while i'm on the topic of hate...

grivas didn't go over enough that covers our homework and i dont know how to do it. i worked and worked and couldn't figure it out.


i hate it. i hate it. i hate it. swersey tells lies. it seems like he has reason behind it. then he changes it or isn't ture to his word all around. he changes rules from the course guidelines. he makes us all confused. he changes stuff and acts like he doens't at all.

so much work for that class too. sooo much

Friday, September 19, 2003


i went to fresno's for dessert with kate and maggie tonight. they were all very good. our waitress seemed to not care about us at all.

gravester decided tonight was guys night out for them so it became fun time for us girls as well.

Thursday, September 18, 2003

well we got locked out of the cage today and i had to wait for kevin to get back.

Monday, September 15, 2003

my parents visited this weekend. look for yourself


today wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. i did my presentation in ied that i didnt' know we had to do. lots of people in my group researched the same as me. i didnt' get to sit anywhere near dave in class because we had to sit with our teams. physics wasn't so bad. i sat near tom today. when i got to physics i didn't like it because people were where i normally sit. threw me for a loop. i dont like when that happens. next time i have to be more than 5 minutes early to get my seat back. programming wasn't too bad. i would have figured it out myself. it's always just easier to ask dave. i got my one point for the inclass problem today. we have the next homeowrk assignment to do. only 4 more classes left and 2 more hw assignments plus a project. i dont think we really learn enough that we have to do in that class. the book seems pretty good though.

my family visited this past weekend. it was nice. i bought a lamp. timmy doesnt' think he would like it up here though. i got to spend time with just maggie and no dave at walmart. it was a lot different. we lost maggie at walmart and then when timmy was hunting for her we lost him too. he found her but we couldnt find them. we all found each other in the end and maggie got a big red rug.

i have to write my essay on philosophy of law for tomorrow. i dont think it is goign to be pretty. i hate essays!

Saturday, September 13, 2003

my parents and brother are here but i haven't seen them yet

Thursday, September 11, 2003

we got our ied groups. it sucks. the teams are very lopsided with strengths and weaknesses. swersey said he goofed and he is redoing them. i'm not sure how well that will go though.

Tuesday, September 9, 2003

i'm gettin ahead of hte game. i'm running out of stuff to do except ied.

Monday, September 8, 2003

our bathroom smells funny...like mold or mildew or something yuck


so much work. when u finish something there is always 2 more things that need to be done. and these new things take longer too. no more listening to people making me think that i don't have to do work when i think i do.

Friday, September 5, 2003


today there was a big leak into our dorm. somethign above our bathroom broke and it flooded in. kate called fixx. they said they were sending someone over, but nobody came here to clean anything up. they only cleaned upstairs i assume. there is still a huge puddle on the carpet. it's quite noticable to the eyes and to the feet (even with shoes on).


i got a 3/4 on my first psych essay

Friday Night

tonight was a trip to macaroni grill and then to the movie which was the medalian. neither were that great. but i spent a lot of money! the movie was unliked byu all. ebefore we went half of us thought it would be bad we were right. we didnt' get to see a chick flick that would have been good.


2nd week of classes. 9 hours of sleep 3 different nights this week. 8 hours once. least amout of sleep so far was wed night with 6.5 hours

Wednesday, September 3, 2003

i'm picking my gram up at 1 to go out to lunch. i have to dry my hair and fix it between now and then

Friday, August 15, 2003


after shopping was on-line then out ot dinner then gram visited and then laura's
at laura's we watched two movies that i've already seen. and i don't see many movies either so i sorta wished we watched different ones. laura's dad makes vhs's of the dvd's they rent. i should learn how to do that.
we watched how to lose a guy in 10 days and then two weeks notice. that was the third time i saw two weeks notice. the first time was the not snow tubing day and the second time was when my mom rented it while dave was here. the first time i saw how to lose a guy in 10 days was on gravester's birthday when he let sarah pick.

dave when to sleep seconds after i got on the computer. i didnt' even get to converse at all with him becuase i was reading all of his ims. his away message is lying right now.

o the adventure

todya i went shopping and bought
sticky tack (6 packages)

Wednesday, August 13, 2003


i finished the jungle a few moments ago. i put shorts in my nightstand for school. then i wrote in an actual journal for a little. i am not quite tired yet. i am not sure if i should start a new book sleepers or not. it had 370 pages. the jungle took me a month an da week and it had 346 pages. my room is so messy now. i'm glad that i only have one more day of work. i will call tomorrow to find out what time i work. if they schedule me friday, i am not going in. i will be at laura's house. the second time i saw most people this summer. i literally did nothing. working everysingle day of the week and put a damper on my life. i'm excited to go back to school. i want to see everyone and i want to excel in my classes so my mom will quit bothering me. but actually i think if i got a 4.0, she would still find some way to always bring up grades. earlier today i got a special message on the phone from dave. :)

o no

i didnt post at all yesterday.
what is becoming of me.

i packed a little but not much. mainly i was lazy. worked tried to call me in to serve last night. i said no. i have about 20 pages left in the jungle and at present time i am 94.7% done with the book

Monday, August 11, 2003

Sunday, August 10, 2003


i made between 9 and 10 dollars tonight (well counting my 2.83. i avereged 7 an hour in tips. i always remember to tip dina, the bartender out or i would have had more money. i am the only one that tipped her out.

school in a week

my computer crashes many times a day.
it can't find the operating sytem. this is not good. not good at all.
i opened my computer this morning and it could not find the operating system!!! at least that's what it kept telling me and it couldn't find other stuff either. evilness

Saturday, August 9, 2003

dave finished the jungle just to spite me


i'm sneaky but work deserves it. i was punched in as a banquet server all day today even tho i was supposedly a la cart from 5pm - 11:48. i only had 3 tables tonight. i was helping everyone else. it was eveil. luckily nobody changed how i was punched in. people were nice. i sold a bottle of wine tonight again. i really gotta learn how to uncork them. people asked me where to buy a car around here and stuff. i talked for a long time to my first two tables. fun stuff. at least they weren't rude.

i worked 11.8 hours today even tho i was scheduled for 9.

sarah might work for me on wednesday. i am excited. it's so hard to believe that school is so soon. i can't wait... well to go up there but not start classes


my family is sooo crazy. they waited for me to get home from work to go out to eat. i got home after midnight. we just got back from dinner now

Friday, August 8, 2003


work sucks. i hate it. it's evil. people are cheap. tonight i ended up with 8.90 an hr but if i would have been tipped 15% i would have had at least 10.30 an hr

my foot hurts

i only had tables of two tonight. i was about ot get a table of 4 then bart stole it from me. what a meany. and i was done with my other stuff so i had nothign to do...


i think i have really come to the conclusion that i can't do any more scrapbooking before i leave for school. sadness. but at least i get to organize my STUFF.

less than two weeks!


daisy's vet bill was free. she was attacked by a swarm of bees today and we took her to the vets. she seems ok.

Thursday, August 7, 2003


work sucks. they add me to the schedule then call me becuase i didn't show up. so i didn't bother to tell them that i was on overtime at the end there. only 15 mintues tho. quite disappointing. i should have gotten there at 5 like they said and then i would have had an hour of overtime.

they best be nice to me this week or *evil laugh*


i work too much. how will i ever get everything done?

Wednesday, August 6, 2003

Wednesday 5- (Hostess)

so much for going easy on me so i can get ready to go to school


i realized that i got over a pet peeve in the past year. a roommate can do that you to i guess. now wrapping a hair dryer cord around the dryer doesn't bug me.

i work at 4 tonight. ana has strep throut. it should have been 5 but then they asked if i could come early.

wonderful day even with sad points

o what a wonderful day!
i got flowers at work from dave. everyone asked me all about them and who they were from. it was quite intriguing. i loved it all. it was awesome. they are all so pretty. then i made 54 bucks when i worked less than 6 hours. sort of made up for yesterday.

i worked 5.7 hours today as a server. i worked 5.9 yesterday as a server. today i made over twice as much. But yesterday royally sucked though. so far i worked 26.93 hours this week in 3 days. i was off on friday. so i work 3 hours tomorrow and about 8 the next two days after that. so i will work about 38 hours this week. no overtime for me. i will try to get it though. or as close to 40 as possible. yes i will. i'm greedy like that. i want to serve more. i liked it better that barb wasn't around bugging and screaming tonight. it makes the evening more peaceful,

dad got ok'd to go back to work tomorrow as long as he has a foot stool. He went to two doctors today and then to work to fill out forms about going back to work. He was out for four hours, which made his leg turn purple. which means it still isn't healed.

my foot can't handle a 6 hour day anymore. this is quite bad. i believe i will be sending an e-mail to the cross country coach and also the team to say that i can't run. it is sooooo sad. i want to run so bad and i can't.

Saturday, July 26, 2003

Sunday, July 20, 2003


stupid foot. stupid stupid foot. bad pain. it was ok for about the first 10 hours of work. i worked a little over 11 and made 78 bucks in tips. i only made that much becuase it was a busy dinner. i made practically nothing for brunch.
i think i have to give up running for a good while. it sucks. i want to run so bad.
i'm so tired. i have dentist at 9:20 tomorrow morning.

Saturday, July 19, 2003


i declare my work shoes suck, even tho i don't know if that is why my foot hurts. i work tomorrow at 10 now. 10-8 is when I'm scheduled.

my foot is noticably bad again. to the touch and just looking at it. so when will i be able to actually run. i ran today. my foot didn't hurt then. this sucks. it's been over a month. the dr said to call if it still hurt in 2 weeks. hmmm

i may get 40 hours this week. i will if they don't call me off.

today was my cousin's graduation party. lisa liked how we just sat in a corner and nobody talked to us.
I tried to post this last night sometime around 11:30 but it wouldn't post


giant eagle
grad party

and dad comes home

Friday, July 18, 2003


i worked 9.98 hours today.

my foot is in a great deal of pain. i do not have off on sunday anymore.


last night at 11, chris from work called and wanted me to come in at 10 today instead of 11. so i did. i worked 10 - 2 then i work at 5 again tonight.
tomorrow i told them i can't make it until 6. but that is good since i was supposed to have off. i am off on sunday though. i work here and there and sometimes twice a day during the week.
saturday is my cousin's graduation party. but i don't know how things will work with that because things aren't so well with my dad.


when my dad got to hospital his heart rate was 110 and for him that his super fast. my dad is worse today. he was shaking for over half hour. my mom thinks that was definitly shock. now he is on a venelation machine. originally he thought he would be out today. today he is even worse from yesterday. yesterday was worse from the day before. he doesn't even know if he will be out by the end of the weekend. he cancelled his cleveland trip. they put him on more medicine. he is supposed to call my mom back. we learned this when they were on the phone and he had to get off because a dr came in. so more info later

Thursday, July 17, 2003


i worked a bit. came home, mom left, dad called, mom came home. i talked to dad on the phone for a half hour or so. i actually learn stuff talking to him. His leg is all red today. Yes worse than yesterday. It hurts when he walks. they put him on a second antibiotic because of his not getting better. his blood pressure is up to 110 over 60. he doesn't think there is a chance he will go home tomorrow anymore. he gets lonely and bored. i feel bad. i want to visit, but mom won't go. He doesn't have a roommate anymore. The other guy was released.

Wednesday, July 16, 2003


it was soooo dead tonight. i only made 30 bucks. i worked about 4 and a half hours. i only had 1 table at a time. i did have a big section though. maybe they are getting more faith in me.

my comptuer hates me. it won't work. it is going to be shut down for a bit and i hope it fixes itself. even though i know it won't.


i went in to visit dad today. i didn't work during lunch. he has cellulitus. his phosphorus and magnesium levels are low. his is not allowed out of bed all day today because his blood pressure is so low. it is something over 30. yes 30 not the normal 80. they told him he would be in the hospital 2 or 3 days. He is worring about little stuff; such as if we ate the two buns that we had before they go bad.

Tuesday, July 15, 2003


mom called the hospital. the workers aren't allowed to tell her anything. she got to talk to my dad. he has an infection. a really bad infection in his leg. it is still spreading. it has moved to the lower leg. they have him on antibiotics through ivs. they didn't do anything to his head for the abraision. forbes was full and that was the reason he wen to AGH. we aren't going in until morning sometime. His heart is perfectly fine so that is good.


after we found him lying on the floor there was a welt on th eleft side of his head and we later learned that the back of his head was grazed and that was bleeding. he thought that he let himself to the floor easy cuz he felt lightheaded. but we know otherwise. he didnt think he was on the floor for 20 minutes either. i wonder how long he was out and how bad that is for him. i dont 'know how my mom is falling asleep at this moment. about 10 to 20 more minutes before she calls the ER to find out what is wrong with him. i am so worried.

o my god

a lesson is learned. when you hear a loud boom and u know it wasn't your brother go investigate. timmy found my dad lying on the kitchen floor with some blood beside him. he passed out and hit his head somewhere. he wasn't feeling well since he went walking with me earlier today. he walked and i ran. he hurt his groin then. while driving, he started to have a hot flash or so he thought. but then he didn't look good at all walking into the house. i went and told mom. he was shivering later. we thought he fell asleep. we thought it was some reaction to his new medicine. he got up to go to the bathroom and he said he felt all dizzy but made it. then at 12:30 he got up to take his medicine. that is when we heard the boom. over 20 minutes later is when timmy found him. then he woke up my mom and we called the doctor. then called the ambulance. he was being taken to forbes regional hospital. next mom and i headed out to forbes. we got to forbes and the lady there said she had the initals jc of someone that was in ambulance that was diverted to allegheny general hospital (AGH). mom thought he was diverted because his heart surgery doctor is down there but i thought it was because he got worse in the ambulance. we came home after forbes. while at forbes we called and he hadn't made it to AGH yet. mom knew he would need stuff taken down there and that they wouldn't know how he was doing for awhile. after we got home she called AGH and he was just admitted and they said they wouldnt' know what was going on for an hr to an hr an a half. mom then called my aunt to let her know because my gram is also there now. mom tried to go to sleep for an hr or so and she wants to leave to go to the hospital around 5. i work at 11 and possibly 5 tomorrow. but once we find out anything and chesterfields is open then i am going to call and see what i can do to fix that. dad is more important than any old hours at work. mom keeps saying that he should have never gone to the track with me. my dad is only 52!

how can i sleep when i feel that it was my fault for having him walk while i ran at the track and than also not going to find out what that loud noise was.

i feel that burning behind my eyes that i get when i'm stressed and/or worried.

here i am

work actually wanted me to work more not less and i had to get home so timmy could have the car. usually they send me home early. grrr i wish i had more hours.

Monday, July 14, 2003


today i was asked if i could stay late and then later i was actually told to go home early...
hours = good = money

Sunday, July 13, 2003

Friday, July 11, 2003


work is not so fun. it was soooo hot by the hostess podium. i was so busy. they were short on servers. and i missed big brother yet again. how disappointing. i wonder if my mom taped it for me.


i slept the day away

you know what's so crazy
guess what i found in my apron today
a receipt
an olive garden receipt

when i was up at school w/ no apron near me

not the receipt that i showed dave from that day that was in my purse. this one did not have maggie's signature like the one that was in my purse.
nice paycheck but not as nice as it should have been. becuase i lost over 20 hours because of my foot. 360 buck paycheck. tonight i was a hostess then a server than a hostess again. i made 20 bucks from 2 tables. One table was of 8 people the other of 2. the two top gave an ok tip and the 8 top gave only about 12.5 percent. and they got water and crap like that. so i shoulda had even more than 15% if they were nice people. i got cheated out of tables at work because they made me go back and be hostess.


today 5
thursday 11- and 5-
friday 5-
saturday 5-
sunday 9:30-8
monday - thursday all 11-2 and possible nights

Tuesday, July 8, 2003


i don't want to go to sleep. i don't want to be awake. i'm getting sick of actions of some people (even if these actions happened awhile ago and i just learned about them recently). i'm not sure what to do. i don't feel like doing anything at the moment. i keep fighting tears. i have so much to do. i have many things that i want to get done but i just don't want to do any of them. i wish it was a week ago. i wish i was able to relax.


train was to leave at 8:45. it was delayed indefinitely along with everyother train. the train in front of mine hit somebody....silliness. at 10:30 we borded. 10:37 - we left and learned they took the cafe off the end of the train
i read for a little then woek up at 12:12 then at 1:05 we stopped we had to stop for a bit probably for a train to pass. i was on pagew 127 at this time. at 1:30 i finished the nancy drew book (all 180 pages). at 1:52 we were at the lewistown stop. i only learned the actual reason we were delayed at 2pm. at 2:20 i realized i left dirty dancing at dave's house. at 2:45 i woke up from nap. then i sat there for a bit and woke up again at 4:20. I got back a little bit after 5 instead of at 3:57. now i'm home and mom is cooking and timmy is going to get a shower. the water is gonna turn cold on him when the use it to cook...hah
i miss being with dave :(

Friday, July 4, 2003


tomorrow the heat index is supposed to be about 100 degrees................................... yuck

today i was at a huge mall. king of prussia. but it closed early so i only made it through about half the mall. i was quite disappointed. plus i hear there is another building too. we didn't even make it ot that one. i did buy some stuff though. dave shopped with me :)


yesterday we ended up not going to acme because dinner at dave's mom's was to be had. we did go to acme on the way home though, but it closed 10 minutes after we got there so we didn't get anything. we are about to go to pizza hut.

Thursday, July 3, 2003


we are almost ready to go to acme. it was going to be to get breakfast but it's gettin kinda late now. i'm not sure what we'll end up getting. i wanted to get actual food and cook tonight but we can't think of anything we want to make.

Wednesday, July 2, 2003


we were on our way to philly. things didn't go as planned. a lot later we were at the parking garage. then we walked a lot and saw the liberty bell. then we walked to the river. then took the subway back to the car. 16 bucks to park for less than 4 hours!

Tuesday, July 1, 2003


well i'm here. i forgot to post yesterday. we haven't done that much. today i got to watch my soaps after krispy kreme and the park.

my train was 20 minutes late yesterday. we were ahead of schedule going into harrisburg. we had to wait there for a good while. some guy sat down beside me and talked. it was crazy. i was so cold on the train so i coudl'nt sleep and then i got out my computer to warm my legs with the heat coming from it.

Sunday, June 29, 2003

argh for work

work sucks. i did get to serve again. but that was cuz they were stuck. i didn't get many tables or anything so i didn't like it. barb got mad i punched in as a hostess even tho it says hostess on teh schedule. she told me i need special permission from now on to punch in as a hostess even tho i was on the schedule twice as a hostess.

i'm so excited. i leave tomorrow morning... :)

argh again

work changed the schedule once they hired all these new people. it drives me crazy. so now today i only work 3-8 instead of 11-8. it pisses me off. i was so tired this morning and i rushed to get ready. i really hate that place. i figure everyone hates their jobs and some are just worse than others. i think mine is really bad. the turnover is like a week and new people are coming in.

Saturday, June 28, 2003


i didn't work!
i went to visit Rachel's apartment and it was cool

i'm like a little kid and so excited. i have to pack and stuff.

Friday, June 27, 2003


we got some pain goin on here

work is horrible. they are so unorganized. they r crazy


they sent me home from work early. i'm not on at all tomorrow. they really know how to give me the hours.

Thursday, June 26, 2003


i'm not quick like a fox anymore. i probably shouldn't work very long tomorrow. i will anyway though. i need hours. i don't need the pain. i don't need to ruin my chances of running in the future. this is pretty bad. why does everything have to happen to me. everyone keeps asking me if i hurt my foot at work. i bet i did but i'm not sure. i know it got worse at work. argh too bad i dont' have one of those easy jobs that i sit down all day and get paid lunches and also get paid more.


i'm good at working short days to make foot heal. only 9.5ish today. i did pick up a few tables while i was hostess. pocketed 25 bucks in an hr and a half. they have been packed this week becuase of the coupons in clipper magazine. i almost had a thrid table but they wouldnt' let me take a table outside. even after i took their order and everything. i still haven't found out if i passed the server test. i assume yes or they wouldn't have me serve today. but who knows. they probably didn't even look at it yet. tomorrow i work 11-2 and 5-10(or 11 or 12)

well i'm on the phone so i'll write more later


well i worked for 3 hours today and i have to go back at 4:15. they still haven't even looked at the server test that i took. so i don't know how long before i find out how i did. my guess is never. one can only hope. today lunch was busier than it has ever been before. well busiest since i've been back anyway. my foot is being iced at the moment.

so far i'm only on the schedule sunday 11-8. banquet from 11-3 and hostess 3-8

Wednesday, June 25, 2003


shopping was done twice today. i went to kmart and then kohl's with my mom. then after dinner and some tv, i went to fashion bug, world of values, and kohl's. I bought a bunch of stuff and spent too much money. it's just not fair. i just got another paycheck and it isn't even deposited yet and i spent some of it. i was plannign on spending less than half my money I make this summer. I'm only 50 cents off from half now. Too bad it was spending 50 cents too much. and i'm visiting dave for a week before my next paycheck. i have to conserve!

Tuesday, June 24, 2003

i work 11-2 and 5-9 on thursday too what fun

i went out to "dinner" with mallory after work tonight. We talked forever. tons of fun.


i worked. 3 hours. foot in some pain. not as bad as before. but if i didn't know that bad pain i would say this is painful. i work again at 5.

how come i can't get two 40 hour weeks on the same paycheck. i went over 40 w/ 8 hrs and over 40 with 16 hours and now over 40 and this week which will be about 10

333 buck paycheck

Monday, June 23, 2003


June 30 – July 8 I will be visiting Dave! We will be visiting Andrew one day while I’m there. We have a list of things we want to do. I bet we won't get to a lot of them and that we will think of new stuff to do while i'm there. My duffle bag is still filled with stuff from school. My laziness is setting in. Maybe there's another handy dufflebag that i can use in this house. I have to go shopping before I go because I don’t have any shorts that fit. My mom won’t let me go anywhere though or do anything just because of my stupid foot. I went to the dentist today for some kind of sealant. Then I went to Gram’s. She took me out to lunch. She wanted me to order so much. How much does she think one person can eat? I decided to go with a pizza because I knew the family would like leftovers. Mom ate 4 pieces so I was right. I am going back to the dentist to get a retainer made and he’s going to fix my top retainer so it fits. Timmy's teeth are straigther than mine and he didn't have braces at all. I had braces for three and a half years.
I’m so disgusted that I can’t run for awhile.

Sunday, June 22, 2003


i keep telling my mom i'm quick like a fox but she doens't believe me.

work made me go in but then when i gave her the doctors excuse she said i had to leave. so i had to wait until my mom got home for her to come back to pick me up.

before i left i walked to the request off folder. right above that a sign was posted that said "no request offs for July 4" and then i fill out a sheet that i need off from june 30 - july 8. nothing i can do about it.

i have resorted to reading today. all day until about 15 minutes ago i was internetless. :(

Saturday, June 21, 2003


i'm so thankful for lifetime movies. they have kept me bored out fo my mind today and kept the day going by not extremly slow. yesterday took a year to be over. and this movie ends at 9 and from 9-11 there is another one to watch. go lifetime. next i will try 502 becuase it's lifetime original movies all the time.


i feel helpless. i feel bad making my family get stuff for me. i want to be able to be normal again

Friday, June 20, 2003


constant hurting. the ice doesn't help. i have crutches now. i am bored out of my mind.


a picture and an article that is related to me


correction it is anti-inflammatory


chesterfields just called and asked if i could work at all because the hostess quit. hahahaha. i sorta feel bad for them though. i told them i would work on sunday at 3. i am callling tomorrow. this sucks bad tho.... my stupid foot.

o the pain

I can't work until Tuesday. I am to rest. The x-ray results will be learned in 3 business days. She perscribed me some medicine. I think plantar fasciitis is what she called it. I have a paper with excercises to do and stuff but that is downstairs and i'm not going to go get it. I was also given a perscription. It's naproxen the generic for naprosyn. a 500mg tabled to take twice a day. it's the same as i had for my jaw. so i know it's for pain and not inflamation. If it still bothers me in a few weeks I am to go back.
in the packet i got it has excercises for me to do and it says that the worst pain is in the morning and that is correct.


o my god. my foot is getting worse by the day. it hurts so bad. i was limping this morning. i called work and i'm not going in today. i still have a scheduled 10 hour day tomorrow. i won't even work 30 hours this week. i wanted two 40 hour weeks on the same paycheck. o well. i put bengay on my foot this morning. let's hope that works.

Thursday, June 19, 2003


i tried to stay off my foot. i soaked it. i iced it. i rested it a bunch. i'm not limping as bad today. it's only a little puffy and bruised. it better get better asap.

11 days

Wednesday, June 18, 2003


I'll be arriving at 2:50 in Philadelphia. I asked both of my parents about it. Neither seemed too thrilled but neither told me out right no so i just bought the tickets. Yay for AAA discount. Still 63 bucks round trip. I didn't want to make my parents that mad so I'm not staying for an extreme amount of time.


trian tickets have been ordered for June 30!


i don't work tomorrow because of overtime. at 1:45 I was forced to punch out because of it. Then i had to stay for server training at 2. and it started late and it lasted forever and she didn't even go over all the stuff on the server test. that server test is impossible. crazy let me tell you. also the arch of my foot is in such pain.

they don't let me work the last day of my schedule just becuase i worked 43 hours this week.


my foot is in such pain!

Tuesday, June 17, 2003


work is way too unorganized. i worked from 11-3 today and they told me to come back at 5 to be a waitress but at 5 i came back and they made me be hostess. that is mean of them. getting my hopes up and dashing them. i got the servers test. i have ot take it before i can be on the floor serving for real. it's 9 pages long. the questions are crazy

Monday, June 16, 2003


so i got two referals at the doctors and neithe rof the doctors that the referals are for will see me. they hate me, that's all it is, now i have to find new doctors
