Thank You

Thank you everyone that’s reached out and made sure I’m okay. I haven’t had a chance to reply due to everything going on. It’s mostly the stress, rude people, and unnecessary drama in my life.

Today a series of events made me angry and I never really truly get angry unless you push me over the top.

I vented everything just now to Jenny which I also never do because I feel venting about something won’t fix anything. And talking to her about it doesn’t do any good because she doesn’t know any of the people I talk about and therefore, she can’t help me fix what I’m angry at.

I’ll get over it by tomorrow most likely.

My only form of fitness lately is doing sports. Basketball games, basketball practices, football practices, soccer games … which actually totals up to almost 10 hours a week. I actually had a Basketball game yesterday, Co Rec, and we won 61-49! Victory. Very hard victory to get. Shin splints and pulled back muscle for me and I had to play. For the team right? I’m glad I did.

Anyway, I hope everyone’s doing better than I am. Few more days until Spring Break. I cannot wait.

Busy Weekend

Picture0372

I woke up late yesterday to the 5k Diploma Dash. I brushed my teeth and jumped on Jenny’s bed so she could take me. I made it in time!! And walked the 5k in less than an hour. I had shin splints so doing it in 56 minutes wasn’t bad to me. I beat other people younger than me who walked it in more than 1 hour. Next time I will run the 5k in October in Houston. At least that’s the plan.

I went to basketball practice but change of plans made practice into scrimmages. Leah wasn’t going to come to practice but she was watching some kid show (up above) with her nephew and her words exactly, “This is what made me come …” long pause “… to basketball practice.” Which made me laugh so loud. Love her.

Leah and I waited too long to get our scrimmage on so we left with Eric T. and Gerald. Said bye to Leah and the rest of us went and ate Pho on Bitters. It was delicious. Especially on such a windy day. We had lots of laughter and giggles. A lot of inside jokes and I got to know them better. It was fun and it was more amazing because Gerald drove instead of me. I hate driving!

I went home to relax then went to Flying Saucer with Amanda, Brent, and Jenny. What was suppose to be a date with Amanda and I became a double … in a way. I didn’t mind it though. The more the merrier.

I caught up with Amanda about stuff going on with her and stuff going on with me. Brent and Amanda gave me some advice which kind of made me feel better but at the same time, not so much.

Jenny got the Texas sample beers. YuM! I think I want to do that next time I go just so I can try everything.

We bumped into Travis at Flying Saucer earlier and he said he was going to come over whenever we got home. And so he did. We hung out and talked and looked at funny pictures online.

First time in my life I was so tired that I kept closing my eyes. So we called it a night.

Woke up early working on things then went to Football Practice for a few hours. I am so tired out.

Jenny and I just got back from Fish City Grill. Sad we couldn’t get crawfish but next time. Next time. Open-mouthed smile

Soccer Game in one hour and thirty minutes. Let’s go! Winking smile

Think Good Thoughts: Living

FTK Co-Rec Soccer is in the Playoffs and we won our game tonight! Whoop! Smile I played a little bit but with shin splints and all it was hard so I was sad but we did great!

And now onto Thankful Thursday!

I’m thankful I got to go to THON. I got to see things that not many people have a chance to see. I am hoping I can go next year to relive it again. Fingers crossed! I probably can’t go with the group again since I would have graduated but maybe a reunion or something?

I am thankful I am alive. I tend to think about a lot of things when I drive. Most of the time when I’m quiet, I’m thinking about something. Driving or not. Good or bad. I drove to a lot of places today that gave me time to think that I almost got into, give or take, 5-7 car accidents. I actually rammed into a stone wall while backing out tonight after taking someone home. Yes, it was that bad.

I’m thankful I have friends like Shayna and Patrica. I’m sitting in their living room watching the telly and typing this out while they are asleep. Yes, another schedule post written in the past! We had a girl’s night. Much needed for all of us. We drank wine and watched Criminal Minds so I could stop thinking about everything while I worked on some FTK stuff … of course. I’m not able to tell them all the little details of things but I’m able to tell the gist since they were kind of there for everything.

I’m thankful for my FSA big, Rex. I bumped into him in the halls today and he knew something was wrong because I wasn’t smiling for the first time. I didn’t tell him anything and insisted I was not sad. But with his hug, tears welled in my eyes. There are so many people who are there for me when I least expect it, yet I’m never able to open up.

I am thankful for my siblings. Given I don’t tell them anything that goes on with me but if I get a text or a message on Facebook, just seeing it makes my day. Especially when they send me cute pictures of their doggies, aka my nephews. I cannot wait too meet my newest nephew! I’m not sure if they decided to change his name or not but he’s two years old. Sissy, Brett, and Ross got him at the pound.

There are other things I’m thankful for of course. The list can go on. But right now, those are what holds dear to my heart.

I hope everyone has a Thankful Thursday! Think of all the good that you have and the bad will slowly disappear, hopefully.

Hallmark Holiday

I guess you could say my weekend started Monday after 7:30pm when we found out the other team wasn’t going to show up for our FTK Co-Ed Soccer game. I’ll tell you more about why my weekend has started this early at a later post. Winking smile

Today has been a pretty eventful day. I woke up with a text from Jenny saying to grab a donut on the way out. I’m not a fan of donuts but I like sprinkles. Smile I ate the one in the middle on the right because it was a better looking heart than the other two.

2012-02-14 13.30.00

I went to school and a friend and I did a storyboard for a video we’re wanting to shoot that has to do with skydiving. It’s pretty simple. Not too in depth. Most of it is just in our heads. Then I went to class to where I didn’t have to be at since I rescheduled my test.

Went to the bank to get moolah then headed home and relaxed with Jenny and Deana. Travis came over and he ate the chocolate heart shaped donut and we all read horoscopes, watched YouTube videos, and hung out.

Took a one hour nap. Then headed over to Shayna’s and Patricia’s. It was Girl’s Night. To be exact … Single Girl’s Night.  I think one of them has a boyfriend though.

Before anyone else came over, Shayna, Patricia, and I talked about guys. Bahaha Typical, right? What is girl’s night without some talk about guys …

2012-02-14 21.12.25

Flor and Patricia’s friend, Jocelyn, came over. We ate Alfredo Pasta with broccoli, carrots, cucumber, and tomatoes. With half a yam. I love yams. Yams, yams, yams. Open-mouthed smile

2012-02-14 21.19.42

And we drank wine. I’m not a wine lover but this was actually pretty good. Patricia drank pretty much the whole bottle.

We also had another bottle of wine but I didn’t like it.

2012-02-14 21.58.28

Then we all had some chocolate covered strawberries and watched Our Family Wedding. I asked for a sad movie where either people die at the end or a relationship doesn’t work out. But they picked a cutesy funny one that made me wish I had a boyfriend. BOOO …

Anyway, I hope your Valentine’s Day was as great as mine … surrounded by people I love. Open-mouthed smile

I Love Kicking Balls

Actually that is false. I’m the worst soccer player ever. Just had our first FTK Co-Rec Outdoor Soccer Game. I was horrible but we won. Open-mouthed smile

Had to forfeit FSA Women’s Basketball. I’m pissed. FSA Men’s Outdoor Soccer lost. I’m pissed. FTK Men’s Outdoor Soccer lost. I’m pissed.

They did their best though so I’m not really pissed. If anything I’m proud of them. Yellow cards were thrown everywhere. Love when things get steamy between guys .. in the I-want-to-fight-you sort of way.

Speaking of steamy, it was so cold outside this guy was steaming like he was on fire because he was so hot from playing soccer. It was kind of cool.

I’ve had my workout for the past four days and it’s not over since tomorrow’s the FSA Co-Rec Basketball Game.

That means staying in school all day tomorrow. Two meetings, a letter writing campaign, and a game.

Bleugh. I just checked my schedule and I’m busy pretty much the rest of the month. Kill me now …

Hello Tuesday. I’m ready for you.

I’m Hongry

I’m sitting in class.
My stomach is growling.
I cannot concentrate.
So I’m sitting here typing.

Say that ^ like I’m rapping. It works.Winking smile

But I really am feeling that way. I need to wake up earlier for a meal before heading to school.

Anyway, I worked out last night … in a way. I had a soccer game with FTK. It was our best one yet. We tied 4-4 but sadly lost it at the PKs in the end. I’m not a soccer player. I don’t do well with my legs … but run. And even then, not so great. So it was fun while it lasted.

Does anyone know anything about T-Mobile phones? I can renew my contract Oct. 24th and have been searching for a new one. I don’t know anything about phones and am afraid I’ll pick one that sucks. HELP!Confused smile

Did I lose 5lbs?

Why am I asking? Well …

I did the second day of 30 Day Shred. Level 1, of course, this morning. TIRING.

Then in the afternoon I had a 2 hour football practice with FSA in the blazing sun. One of the girls accidentally hit me in the head with the football. Then I jammed my knuckle area on my pinky while catching a football.

And I just got done playing a in-door soccer game with FTK tonight. I accidentally knocked down a girl. Whoops.

So you see … I just had to have lost some weight.

But I highly doubt it. Life doesn’t work that way.

*********************************

Last night I got to finally use my popcorn maker with Jenny and Tammy!

IMG_5445

We used olive oil because we didn’t have any other oil. Luckily, I bought spices so we used those. Now we’re thinking of getting butter oil. Then it would REALLY taste like the theater. We figure we would buy that when we are pros at this.

So for the time being, it’s very healthy!

I hope your weekend was eventful. And that your upcoming week goes well!

Lots of meetings and a test and a game this week for me. Eeep!

Popcorn Popcorn Everywhere!

Slacker.

That’s me.

I’m trying to get my s***t straight.

So much stuff going on and so little time in a day.

Therefore Friday night, Saturday night, and tonight I’ve been studying, studying, and doing my school work like crazy!

I went to UTSA’s first ever Football Homecoming Game. They won! 54-7!! (I believe that’s the score.)

Then today I went and had football practice with FSA. I have the worst ankle brace tan. It was so sunny and hot outside, I got dizzy and even right now I don’t feel that great.

Anyway, you want to know what giveaway I won?

You want to know what’s in that box?

Thanks to Jenny from Picky Palate teaming up with West Bend, I won a popcorn machine!! I took a picture of it but I don’t know where my camera is at the moment.

So here’s just a picture of it.

I actually have not unpacked it and used it because I’ve been so busy but I can finally cross this off my bucket list. Is that sad? I have “own a popcorn machine” on my list.

But I can finally cross it off.

Jenny and I have been eating a lot of popcorn, and this just makes it so much easier! Popcorn 24/7!

Now it’s back to finding articles on Computer Graphics to write about then heading to play the soccer game with FTK even though I have the WORST headache.

Hope you all had a good weekend!
