So the semester will finally be done on Monday. All I have is an algebra final and I have an essay to turn in for my wester civ class which will be easy to bullshit my way through since thats easy to get away with at MATC. They're all the basic classes that I need to get in to the school of education at UWM anyway and arent really applicable to my degree, I really dont think Ill be needing to explain the invesiture conflict to anybody while Im interpreting.

Bill was supposed to start at MMI in Feburary but surprise surprise we're having problems with them again. They told Bill in September (after the dumbass financial aid adivsor lost or shredded his financial aid papers) that they would give him teh exact same schedule that he was supposed to have in fall semester which would work perfectly with my school schedule and work. The day after I signed up for my spring classes Bill called and they gave him a schedule that is in the middle of the afternoon and would be impossible have a fulltime job with espeacially since we share a car and can in no way afford 2 cars, the since we work in Middleton and the busses only run till 11 that wasnt an option. So Bill has to wait until fall to go to school again cuz apparently that is the only time they have morning classes for 1st semester students, which means Bill will still be in school here in Madison while Im going to Milwaukee so one of us will have a very long commute for school. Probably me since I figuer Im not going to have classes on a daily basis like Bill will and I dont really want to live in Milwaukee anyway. I really wish MMI wasnt the only school in the state with a music mixing/engineering program. There is a school in Chicago and in the twin cities but Madison is just more convinient. So I guess we'll see what happens.
I havent update in a long time so I suppose I will now, that I have a little bit of free time to do so. So I'll just briefly update of the happenings of the past month or two i guess.

Got in a car accident, and an estimated $4,500 worth of damage was done to my car, luckily my insurance covered it though just $500 more damage and my car would have been totaled.
Got back together with Bill :)
Me, Bill, Ben and Jeremy decided to go to Nashville, TN to go to the Norma Jean video shoot and see them in concert with The Chariot. Though the show kicked ass and was worth it not only because it was an amazing show, but we met band members and got free merch for driving 620 miles, I will never go to Nashville again...1) Any city which I enter and the first thing I see is a huge billboard that says "Jesus saves, and so do southern baptists" is not a city I should be anywhere near, it was at that point I remembered we were in the bible belt and I felt really really out of place. 2) Nashville has the distinct smell of urine 3) Country music EVERYWHERE YOU TURN. Driving though IL sucked too...especially once we got to southern IL and started seeing signs for gunssavelives.com.....and 500ft tall crosses. For some reason, though I was the youngest and the only girl i drove all the way there and back. Well I guess it makes sense becuase both Bill and Ben dont have a license. Anyways all in all it was a good trip...and hardcore kids with southern accents is hilarious.
FINALLY got my car back TODAY..exactly one month after the accident. Only had to pay $75 though

I think Bill got me sick...he stayed home from work yesterday because he was sick and now I have a cold, but what he had it hurt to breathe so maybe I dont have the same thing, the good thing is he said he is going to try and quit smokeing for awhile so maybe he'll stop being sick so much.

Im definetly going to try to work full time at CapTel because if I do Ill be makeing about 1200-1400 a month there, plus the 660 from WPS and the 160 from Rossarios so I finally wont be poor anymore and i can pay off my tickets, fix my car or get a new one, and buy christmas presents.
ANYONE IN THE MADISON AREA: Kept (Bill's band) has a show at the Loft on Saturday December 11th..im not sure of the time or the cost probably about $5 YOU SHOULD ALL GO...well if youre into that kinda music. They are kind of like a harder version of Atreyu but they are very good and no im not just saying that because my boyfriend is the guitarist they are seriously really good, and this is only thier 2nd show so they need the support.
Ive heard they are going to cut our division at WPS. I really really hope I dont get fired because I really need that job, as much as I hate it its pays really well. I dont really think they will though because they just trained a ton of new people.

Steve still keeps on calling and texting me asking for another chance. He had a fucking year and a half. That seems like long enough to have far to many chances. Its starting to get kind of annoying.
Bill keeps saying I should dred my hair..I dont know if I really want to but I'll think about it. If I ever did Id want to put in those extensions that are either made of yarn or wool and can be any color you want. I like the way those look. And Bill would dred it for me so I wouldnt have to pay anyone and free things are good...I dont know if I could go long periods of time with out washing my hair though.
And a survey done out of boredom.
( surveryCollapse )
11 states banned gay marriage. Goodbye freedom, hello natzi germany and religous persecution. I guess it because I live in a strongly liberal area that I dont understand how people can think this way. Are parts of the country brainwashed? Or stuck in the 1950's? Its just beyond my comprehension.

A friend of mine recently went into planned parenthood to get a pregnancy tested. And when she asked if it was positive if she could have an abortion these are the exact words said to her, "We're sorry but President Bush has banned abortions" Im seriously scared. In the slim chance I do get pregnant, I dont have health insurance. It costs thousands of dollars to have a baby. I dont have that kind of money. Hell Id have to save up for an abortion which is only $400. Im scared to live in America. I never thought I would or anyone would say that. Land of the free..what a fucking joke.
I had a job interview today. I hope they hire me cuz I think CLA is going to fire me soon because the whole TB test thing got fucked up. Oh well Ill make more at this job anyways and it will be alot funner.
Bill's training class got done with training and moved to the building Im in. And out of all the units in the entire building he got put in mine. I dont know if its a good or a bad thing. Because on one hand I get to see him alot at work and on the other hand I'll see him all the time. And in the past I havent liked being around my boyfriends constantly, but Bill isnt clingly like all my past boyfriends have been so i guess it will be ok.
So this will be my 1st entry in my 3rd journal. I moved here because no one knows im here so for the time being this journal will be public, but will probably be made friends only because Ive been followed to other journal sites before and was forced to make those friends only.

So Bush has won, and the country will probably go to hell now. All I can say is I want to live in Canada, becuase I dont want to be stripped of my right or die on account that stupid Americans elected a dumbass chritian war monger for president. It still hasnt really hit me that we're in for another 4 years.
I dropped out of my first semester of college, and plan to go back in the fall or next spring and get a degree in business, but knowing me that could change at anytime. Right now im just working...alot.
I'll make a real update eventually....
