I realize no one really reads these, but it's worth a shot. [30 Sep 2009|01:58pm]
It's been an interesting week.

I went to the dentist and didn't have a major freak out. I was really happy about this, but I did have to have Chris drive me because the doctor asked me to take valium before I come in to take the edge off. I'm sure it give him a better working environment as well.

Since Sunday I have also needed to think about alot more things. Stephanie has decided she will be moving out in December and I need to look for a new roommate. I understand her reasoning, it's just a little more stress on me than I expected so soon. I knew we wouldn't be living together next year (most likely), but I wasn't planning on having to figure everything out so quickly. I have a list of things that she is contributing to the house now (furniture, kitchen stuff) and will hopefully have it replaced by the time she moves out and the new person moves in. My other problem is finding a new person. I had such a bad experience with my other roommates I am very reluctant to just pick someone out of the blue to come live with me. I have a few options, but for some reason I don't think they are going to pan out the best. If anyone knows anyone in the area who needs a place to live beginning in Jan or maybe even december, let me know. I know its silly to look so early, but better to be prepared. I think in november I will start looking actively.

Time to update [13 Feb 2009|08:22am]
[ mood | stressed ]

so it's been a while.

i have been overly stressed lately. I have a bunch of midterms coming up in the next two weeks. I wouldn't be so worried, but these once a week classes are making it hard for me to get into the groove of things. I feel so far behind in everything and at the same time trying to balance work, and chris, and friends, and family who all want to hang out. I tend to favor doing the fun (who would have thought) over the school part. I am babysitting this weekend so hopefully that will help me focus and be able to do the actual homework I need to get done to enjoy MY weekend next week. I applied for two internships with Union Bank yesterday. Both are for a strategic planner, but one is in downtown LA, and one is in San Francisco. They are full time and paid. I don't think I would lose any of my seniority with the bank, and might even be able to keep my benefits. I would probably have to find another teller position, but I don't think that would be a problem. I wouldn't mind commuting a little if I needed to. My temporary crown fell off last night while I was flossing. Luckily it doesn't hurt, the dentist wanted me to come in right away saying I might gain sensitivity, but when I explained I lived in San Marcos and worked in Escondido they seemed to understand that it would be difficult for me to make it in. Today will be a busy day, work and alot of homework, need to get ready for a presentation on monday. The big bummer for this weekend is that Chris and I are doing our own Valentines Day on Sunday. We are going to go to museum and then go to get some sort of food, any suggestions for casual dining in the Balboa park area or so would be appreciated. I suppose I should get ready for work or something like that.

An Update, cause if I don't someone will get mad. [28 Oct 2008|11:45pm]
You are lucky I can type right now, I'm on Percocet.

So Info from last weekends, I was unlawfully towed and stuck in CV. Good news- I am getting my money back.

Info from this weekend: I have been having uncontrollable pain from that damn right ovary *shakes fist angrily*. So Vicodin no longer works, unless I take 3. Seeing as I only have like 10 pills left that won't get me anywhere. I call up the doctors and he is out of town and the nurse tells me to go to the ER. So I go to school, yes school. I had alot of things to do and I had to be in school to do them. Mom drives up to me and we hit the ER in Escondido, whoops Hospital is full. By this time I hurt so badly I can't drive. Mom drives me to CV and we get in and they want to do a Pelvic exam (boo), and then do an internal and an external Ultrasound. Which I inform the doctor will show nothing as it did last October. So we waste our time doing it anyways. I was tested for all sorts of STD's 300 times, and asked in there was any possibility I was pregnant 3 million times. So to shut me up temporarily they shoot me with morphine, crazy SOB's. So after being there until like 12 we are given the go ahead to leave with a nice prescription for percocet. Then I get a lecture from a lady who says be careful cause it's addictive and they want me to be safe, but she thinks i need the pills cause of my history of a ridiculous amount of pain. Cool. I called in sick today. I have to go to school tomorrow, and Im light headed so i have to go to bed now. I love you all and I want to talk to your guys so please leave me a message on one of the many places I have to leave messages. good night.

Caution: Semi-girly topic... but nothing gross. [16 Oct 2008|05:12pm]
News on the home front. Let's begin with the good news. My grades are doing really well and i like my classes very much. Now the bad news. I have been having my fabulous abdominal pain again. I went to the doctor yesterday and he is speculating that I have a burst cyst in my ovary again. He says my ovary is not enflamed so I do not need any more surgery. I do need to do a CT scan to check for any other abnormalities which I will do on Monday. So his best solution is to go from 4 period cycles a year to...well none. Apparently I have some sort of issue where my cysts do not react properly to the birth control which is supposed to dissolve the cysts they could not remove. So fun fun, I'm back on vicadin to regulate the pain. I don't really have anything else interesting to say if i think of something I'll let you guys know

In case anyone was wondering about my PCOS... [28 Sep 2008|11:12pm]
So I was looking up why I might be having more pain, and i found this which (for Juli and Tina especially) will explain alot about me.

not all that interesting for most people, but it kinda helped me understand what i never could.

Hopefully starting off the week on a good note, [28 Sep 2008|09:44pm]
So my weekend was eventful. Saturday was the 27th so it was date night. Chris and I decided to go to the movies. We saw Ghost Town, it was very funny and I liked it very much. We haven't been to the movies in a while so it was a nice change. We then took Adam to get a present for Theresa's birthday. Then we went to go hang out at my mom's and then we went to Carino's for dinner with Jon and Alessia. After that we went back to my mom's house and watch WALL-E. I don't remember exactly how Alessia got it, but I am so happy she did. I decided I want a WALL-E stuffed plush (I want to say 'stuffed animal', but WALL-E isn't an animal...) I also think WALL-E is my favorite disney character, but i can't just ditch Cinderella, so I'm going to have to call it a tie. My main point in this little section is I absolutely LOVE WALL-E. So after that Chris drove us home, and I decided it was unsafe to drive at 3:00 am and groggily crawled into bed where I'm sure i drove Chris nuts with my snoring/talking/constant moving. I slept in (which was soooo nice considering i never get to anymore). We watched a Futurama movie, played 3 games of pool, and then went to Costco so we could get running shoes for tomorrow. We are going to be doing a 3 times a week running thingy to get us back into shape. I'm excited about it. Then I went to a sitter's social where i met a bunch of parents who need a sitter. A few said they were going to send me an email with some dates, I hope they do because I need some money. Now I'm back home pretending to do homework and hiding out in my room.

Other little updates that have nothing to do with the weekend:
I am feeling much better, I think it was mostly hormonal... not entirely, but mostly. I do have that pain in my lower abdominal area still, and I have decided after midterms I will go to the doctor to see if they need to change my pill or something, because I do not want to have surgery again. I can't imagine being at my house alone after surgery, I would end up at my mom's but then I wouldn't have my stuff... so that would suck. My knitting is going so well, I have made a bunch of slipper, I think 4 pairs now. I'm going to work on Mormor's pillow next. Oh, on friday I burnt my hand on chris' oven. It sucked. and now it is all super bubbly and discolored and gross. Chris thinks I should tell people i got into a knife fight. To which I resoponded "So we people ask how i got a burn on my hand i should say i was in a knife fight?" yeah, it didn't make any sense to me. when it happened I was worried i wouldn't be able to knit. Luckily I'm good and can knit the good knit.anyways, enjoy my update.

FABULOUS UPDATE TIME!! [28 Aug 2008|05:02pm]
[ mood | chipper ]

We will begin with a bit of not so fun background.
So last wednesday (not yesterday, but the wednesday before) I was down in CV and playing bunko with mom and her cheer ladies. We received a phone call from Mormor saying she wasn't feeling well and needed her trash cans out for the next morning. So we get there, and she can hardly breathe, her lips are blue (which surprisingly is fairly normal for her), she had a fever of 101.9 and had a sever pain in her stomach which had been there since the removal of fluid from the sack holding her lung. She had this procedure done twice, the first time they removed over a liter of fluid and we discovered her breast cancer cells were in the fluid. When she had it done the second time (2 tuesdays ago) they took 950 ml of fluid. Both of these procedures came with ALOT of pain. So, fast forward to that wednesday. Mom and I decided Mormor needed to go to the hospital. I took her to the ER while mom finished up some things. So they get her in take her right away, cardiac echo, chest xray, bloodwork, CT scan, etc. News is there is more fluid... 2 days later. Now it's surgery time. They get in, put in a chest tube, and a drain in her lung with some talcum powder (weird right?) She has to be in the hospital until there isn't anymore draining. So draining ends Monday, she goes home and is finally getting better. I saw her yesterday and she is walking with a cane (weird) but doing very well. Mom and I spent alot of time in the hospital, emily helped out tremendously by taking care of Andre and Bing (dog and bird). In summary, we were scared there for a while, but all is well again.

On to the fun things. CSU San Marcos rocks my friggin socks. I LOVE my teachers. Yes I said it, and in fact I might actually enjoy school this year (SHOCK!!). I am so excited to be going somewhere where even when I am sitting alone, I feel this weird sense of belonging (yes it's insane). I am so much more comfortable talking to people here, I don't feel like I am being judged. Books were more expensive, which right now is the only negative. oh well. Also, I have come to the conclusion that I will in fact be going to grad school. So far I want to do Organizational Leadership. We'll see how the next two years go, but I am going to talk to a counselor soon. Oh I ride my bike to school. And i actually enjoy it. Sometime i have issues getting up the hill, but it's not too bad. I also met a friend, who KNITS! (yes steph it's true) So she wants to hang out and knit sometime and go to a bar which has some sort of knitting time. which will be cool. She is super nice and I am excited to have someone in my classes who I will get along with. So yay for me!

I don't know what else to talk about... toodles.

First week... [17 Aug 2008|09:49am]
[ mood | optimistic ]

So my first week at my new apartment (it is not actually an apartment, but for simplicity sake we'll just call it that) was kinda interesting. I like my room alot even though it is very small. The furniture Mormor got for me works great and looks awesome with the flower comforter on my bed. I hung up pictures of friends and family above my dresser and I also put both of my Danish plates on the wall. They look very nice the way I arranged them. I hung up my purses (the most important part of any room), they look a little squished, but not too bad. Sean gave my a TV, but it was too big so I switched it with the living room TV and it works nifty, I just need to get used to the new channel thing Cox has going on up here.

So my first night, sucked. I woke up ALOT. And every time I woke up I was completely confused as to where the hell I was. I woke up at 4 am to coyotes howling... yeah, not very comforting for me. The drive to work was nice and short though. I like that very much. The second night was much better. I slept so much better than the night before it was awesome. Chris came up friday to hang out and make my printer work, but it turns out I don't have the power cord to my printer so we just hung out, arranged TV's and watched project runway. Friday I went to Chris' house and hung out, I had to leave early because I had to drive up to my house because of work the next day. Chris and Sean found a new place to live in Scripps Ranch. It's a 3 bedroom house and will make it alot easier for them to get to work and for chris and I to see each other because it is about 25-30 min away instead of 40-45. Yesterday i went to work and helped a bunch of idiots who don't know how the whole banking world works. Then I drove down to CV and saw Jessica's new baby (very precious), then I helped daddy pic out a new suit. We chose a dark charcoal grey which looks soo nice on him. Much better than the 15 year old one he has now... NOT cute (it has a gold button with a anchor on it). So after that I waited for what seemed like an eternity and went to Ian and Ashley's house. We hung out and got a late night run on Lolita's in. I wanted to hang with steph last night, but my life got in the way, hopefully we will make it happen soon.

So I think this is the longest entry I have ever posted in my life. I may have more to say later after I go to LA with James and Denise and Chris to get a car...for what for I am not exactly sure. I am just along for the ride and hopefully free food...have a fabulous day everyone.

Release the pressure.

I will be graduating in 2 years, and quiet possibly from CSU San Marcos.

Holy crap, best day ever!

It's one of those days... [07 May 2008|03:06pm]
[ mood | stressed ]

So it is the last day of classes before finals.

Pile on the stress.

I have a final saturday, monday, and tuesday. The final on monday is just turning in 3 essays I need to write before then, which is good, but time consuming. I think I can pull the grades I want, but to keep the luck up I have decided to not talk about the grades I want anymore.

I am feeling very relationship-y today, but I have to control it because it is annoying to everyone including myself. Hopefully I will be over it by the time I see Chris later.

I would really like to crawl into a hole and just stay there until graduation, but that won't be happening anytime soon.

Work has decided Karin is a workaholic. which she is not. I lost my friday off and my monday off next week. I told them that I needed the 31st off and if they schedule me I am not coming in. I hope they believe me.

So if anyone needs me I will prolly be in the library starting tonight until Sunday. You'll know it's me by the glow of the apple on my computer, the pile of papers on the desk, and the panicked look on my face.

When this is all over I'm going out for Martini's.

SDSU?? [03 Oct 2007|08:07am]
[ mood | mellow ]

So I hate school. I don't like it there one bit. I was thinking about transferring somewhere else. I have heard alot of good things about CSU San Marcos. The classes are smaller, the teachers are more helpful. Every semseter I find at least one teacher at SDSU I really like. But as I slink into upper division, I become increasingly afraid that I will get lost in the shuffle and not graduate within the next couple years. I spoke with a girl who hated going to UCSD (Sorry Jules) and she transferred to CSU San Marcos and loves it. Says parking is easy, teachers are helpful (Though she admits the classes may have been more demanding at USCD). So currently that is where I am. It's about an hour drive in traffic (so I was told). If I decide to do this, I will need to figure out all the transfer jazz, I could stay in lower division one more semester but then I am guarenteed to graduate in a total of 5 years, I would have to see if I could transfer in the spring, if I want to get out in 4 1/2. Also is the topic of moving. I could commute, but I don't know if it would just be easier to move a little bit closer to the school. And if I do move it will mean that I would have to find a closer to san marcos job. so many things to think about...sigh.

I really don't. I would like to stay at home and drink coffee while watching re-runs of judging amy and ER. I also wish I could get away with NOT wearing Nylons. Which brings me to a random fact. Nylons were invented very close to the same time in both New York and London...hence NY-Lon's. yeah I'm a dork. I get to wear my polka do shoes... I love them. So cute! I have also come to the conclusion that I don't really like Starbucks' hot drinks (sorry tina) I think I like the random coffee houses better. Starbucks still makes good cold drinks tho. Poor tequila is passed out on the chair. I wish I didn't have to lock her up in her cage while I'm at work, she seems so sad. Anyways, pray for my survival at work...I will be.
