Psh.... LAME!

Families gather, save your money, and take your kids on a staycation!

Yeah thats right. Apparently the new trend, instead of going somewhere on vacation, is to vacation where you live. I just heard about it on the news. I thought that the people on msnbc had made up the cheesy play on words "staycation" but apparently they didn't. In fact, uses the word, and even has an article giving you the TOP 10 staycation strategies.

I love how number 10 is "Plan a real vacation" and says "If you've made it to the end of your staycation without killing each other or filing for divorce, you've earned yourselves a real vacation."

My dreams of becoming a Jedi are unrealistic?


So I just read an article about a guy who dressed up as Darth Vader and attacked some people at a church that practices "Jediism."(Who even knew that churches like those existed?!) I totally want to start one where I live now! Anyway, I have determined that as the equivalent to dressing up as Satan and attacking some people at a Catholic or Protestant church. That would be the coolest church service ever.

From Jedi churches to Jedi Workouts I can finally become the Jedi I have always wanted to be. :D

I'll let you guys know when i can finally use the force,

Go Hug A Tree

ok so I AM SICK of hearing about Earth and environmentally friendly this and that

I have always been somewhat conscious and tried to maintain a healthy relationship with the environment but I now think that everyone just needs to calm down...

I mean has anyone else noticed the new fad I am talking about? MAKE YOURSELF AND EVERYTHING YOU DO "GREEN" and that makes you cool

I do appreciate what people are trying to do...but I still don't believe that humans have THAT negative of an impact on this planet and it's atmosphere(and yes I realize that this post is going to upset whoever reads it b/c people feel strongly about this subject)

I am also sick of this presidential election already...I'm sad that it seems to be a BIG JOKE so far and nobody seems to be a choice candidate

and I am semi-sick of being in greenville all the time...anyone want to take a trip to Chicago for about week? (I checked greyhound ticket prices and it'd be like 100 bucks round trip) seriously--I want to go on vacation

anyway I feel better to get these things off my chest...and will try to rant less in future blogs

My 13 yr old self

I got this idea from someone else...

My 13 yr old self would be pretty happy with the way life is turning out for us.

He would be sad that I don't live in Georgia anymore.
He wouldn't believe that I don't have a crush on Britney Spears.
He wouldn't understand why I don't like anime/manga as much as he does, but he'd still sit back and watch cartoons/scifi with me.
He would wonder why I don't draw as much as him.
He would be happy that I don't struggle with self asteem so much anymore.
He would be shocked to hear that Ellen is grown up and has a real job.
He would be dissapointed that I'm not too much involved in a Youth Group anymore.
He wouldn't be able to handle the fact that Pogo isn't around anymore.
He would still rock out to my music with me, but he would wonder why our brand new cd player was replaced by an ipod.
He wouldn't like the fact that someone stole all the cds he burnt/mixed/bought.
He would be shocked that my hair turned curly and brown.
He would be surprised that I am going to the University of South Carolina where dad went.

This is a shout-out, so to speak, to all the people and things that are inspirations in my life.

I seem to get inspiration from EVERYTHING. Even the smallest things...

It could be the way someone phrases something, the laugh of a certain individual, a song, smell, could be a conversation that passes my way or that I overhear.

THEN BAM--it hits me--and I am struck with an unexplainable feeling that possesses me to write, enlightens my way of thinking, or sparks new ideas. Each day I look for these motivations....who knows what tomorrow will bring...

**If anybody reads this, they will probably have no idea what I am talking about**

I wrote it for me :D

Cash Wrap Rantings

I cannot even explain how bored I was at work the other day. I was standing at the front of the store with NOTHING to do--I swear. I was all by myself...and nobody was coming to check out for like hours.

For a good while, I stared at the cd rack a few feet across from the counter and pondered why Jennifer Aniston would make a cd....and how all actors/actresses were trying to sing these days....and wondered what genre it was classified under. Anyways, I felt ridiculously stupid after my shift when I walked past the cd case and glanced at the cd that had hypnotized me for so long only to realize Colby Callait is probably Jennifer Aniston's twin sister who was separated from her at birth or something...O_O;
I swear she looks like her.....geez

On another note, I have been reading an interesting book lately. Actually I change that statement<< "...the book is not 'interesting.' Interesting means you can keep your distance, play around, agree or disagree. This book is about you. It will change your state of consciousness or it will be meaningless." Yup-page 7. It just has such surreal language and descriptions. I'm enthralled with it atm.

So it's called A NEW EARTH: AWAKENING TO YOUR LIFE'S PURPOSE and Eckhart Tolle is the Author. Ok-yes the title sounds cheesy and yes it is the new book in Oprah's book club but DON'T DISMISS IT JUST BECAUSE OF THOSE REASONS. It's one of those books that you actually have to pick up off the shelf and read a few pages to understand how stimulating it is...merely describing what it is about will not do it justice.

I have a new unhealthy's called Battlestar Galactica.

ok I kinda just started watching it-but I've almost finished the first season and am buying the second season tomorrow. I AM GOING TO GET CAUGHT UP! arrrr

and at work today-I couldn't stop referring to the show and trying to convert people over to Kobol-ism. It's sad really. I can't help myself. I have never liked any other sci-fi show (or possibly any show) to this extent. *sigh*

Soon I will be accusing people of being Cylons or something-anyway my eyes are drying out so I must go for now--I just needed to profess my love real fast

So say we all
