College......probably a good idea.

Wow. It's 2:30 in the morning and I can't sleep a wink. There was a party at the pad tonight and I had a blast. Crystal came to hang out which was super awesome and even Kevin and Heather made appearances. I got to make 'sand in your shorts' which is my favorite drink! I saw quite a few old friends and played some fun games.

Then somewhere after that it turned in a totally different direction. As I'm typing this my intoxicated friends are having VERY deep conversations. It starts with natural born talent vs. hard work in relation to success. After that they touched on astrophysics, evolution, medical experimentation, and literature.

In moments like this, I wish I went to college earlier. Or maybe read more books? I have absolutely nothing to contribute to the conversation. I suppose I deserve credit for being interested? For caring about these subjects and wondering about all the other things in the world that I don't yet know exist.

I'm out of my Vulcan mind!

For all that have seen the Star Trek movie, wasn't that the greatest line? Hilarious! Anyway. . . Because I am a GENIUS I added an awesome widget to the bottom of my blog! I can update it at a moments notice with my cell phone and it posts here and on Myspace! Woot!

You see, it turns out that mobile blogging is not so awesome because it limits my post to 140 characters. Which is 2 sentences in Kayleigh speak. So this widget will make thing a billion times easier. Plus it's just super trendy!

That damn Murphy!

All was well on Monday at my physical. But of course that would have been too easy! I guess because I'm broke Murphy's law came into effect on Tuesday and gave me Tonsilitis! So that meant another copay. . . . . another prescription! Grrr. But I'm glad the pain of it will be over soon. My right tonsil is so swollen it looks like I gained ten pounds in my neck! And the horrible sore throat lead to some accidental weight loss so wooo hooo! LOL

I start at Comcast on Monday. I'm pretty excited to get started onsomething new. It seems like something I will enjoy. Even if I don't love it it'll still be a million times better than what I have now.

Super dad says my car will be ready by the end of this month. I can't wait! I keep telling Richard that my left foot gets bored driving his car. And being able to sleep until 7 again will be a welcome return to the norm.

Starting with myself

My pledge to help keep others from a preventable death would mean nothing if I didn't also do it for myself. So first thing Monday morning I headed to the Dr. for a head to toe physical with special attention on my fondly nicknamed "Izzie spots".(I miss her already guys!)

For those who don't know what I'm talking about, A few months ago I got some salmon colored spots on my abdomen. I'm not going to lie, skin cancer was on my mind. I mean. I'm not a tanner but I've had some major burns in my time. And I've been scared to have them checked out. Nobody wants to get bad news, but bad news later might have been devastating news.

Well at first the Dr was a little concerned. After careful examination it was determined that I have Pityriasis Rosea. In lamens terms this means "your skin changed color for no good reason and will return to normal in a few months." So in the mean time I look like a leper but I'm healthy!

All other reports were good. He's slightly concerned I might have a galbladder problem but with the problems Amber had I told him I don't want to persue anything until I feel like it's a problem. He was ok with that. Also, it turns out I'm almost 5'4'' which is freakin awesome! LOL I guess I never really knew how tall I was.

Well now I need to go plant shopping with Grandma B. Love you guys!

Emotional Overload

Brianna. What is there to say that hasn't already been said by fifty other teary eyed people? I know that I can say this much; I was sad to have lost a friend. I was sad I didn't stay closer if for no other reason than maybe I could've helped, could've said something.

But most of all I am suddenly terribly aware of how real death is. How unexpectedly it can rip through a family like a tornado. I just sat there staring at my sisters thinking "Not you. Never you. I couldn't function without you." And being a mom I thought "Not my babies. That can't happem to MY precious sweet little babies because I couldn't be that strong mom who has to comfort the other crying people."

I know I can't stop death. I know that it's going to come at any time and we rarely have a chance to stop it or even slow it down. But I know that from now on, nobody close to me will be taken by something that could be prevented without me attepting to help. There's just no reason for it. Sometimes you just need a little help or someone to just listen even. So I'm here. I'll listen. I'll help. Because I LOVE YOU!

Inhale. . . . . . . Exhale. . . . . .

On the opposite side of the emotional spectrum. . . . .

Richard and I decided that in November (when his lease is up) we would like to get an apartment together. This is a big step but I'm ready and very very happy. So between now and then I have a few goals to take care of. I need to refile and finalize the divorce. I need to file for bankruptcy and get my behind in gear to be financially free and on the way to wealthy. I need to pay my dad for being a million times cooler than DNA requires and fixing my car/ saving my life. And save for the deposit on the new place!

Best Buds

Today is a special day! It's Amy Hunnewells 23 birthday! She's the oldest of my newest friends. When i made the choice to go to Hunter rather than Cyprus I left many friends behind. There were few people I could call a close friend at that time and had a few times when I got very lonely. I almost went bac k to Cyprus for some company but out of nowhere Amy showed up!

She told me that I would be missed. After that i got confident and friends started showi ng up everywhere I turned. I thank her so much for being there when i needed someone for all the years since then. She's a great friend no matter the number of miles between us. I love ya girlie!
