Paper Towels

I debated whether or not I should post this because it has a couple of swear words, but it just cracked me up. Then again, it was 1 am when I watched it, so maybe it's not even funny. Hope you enjoy it!

PS: I'll try to post a real blog next week.

There's always gonna be another mountain

OK, so most of you probably hate Miley Cyrus, but I'm not ashamed to admit that I adore her. I know she's not the most talented singer or actress, but I think she's charming. And I absolutely love this song. It has such a great message. I love, love, love it!

That's all for now. Enjoy! :)

Things that have been on my mind lately...

Why do companies suddenly decide to stop selling the ONE product you are attached to? Last year, my favorite toothbrush was discontinued. It wasn't anything fancy - just a simple, inexpensive, but very effective toothbrush. I still haven't found a replacement that works as well and fits to my teeth as perfectly as that one did. Sad day. At least I still had my favorite toothpaste, though. But guess what?! That, too, has been snatched from me. Over the past few weeks, I've searched all over San Marcos, as well as a few places in San Antonio; it's nowhere to be found! I now have three different types of toothpaste in my medicine cabinet, all of which either tear my mouth apart or taste gross...or both. This might seem weird to you, but I take oral hygiene very seriously. I'm so aggravated.

I wonder why I feel the need to constantly update my Facebook status. I'm such a private person, so why must I tell hundreds of people my innermost thoughts and feelings? It's not like I want to explain it to any of them. In fact, I usually don't want anyone to know what I really mean; I just need to write it down for some reason. It's really weird. Sometimes I even target my status to a specific person, assuming he'll see it and wonder if it's about him. How dumb is that? Also, I secretly get annoyed at people who don't update their status regularly. Especially people who have been on Facebook multiple times since their last update. And get this: When I'm out doing stuff around town or at school, I often think to myself: "That would be a funny status update." What is wrong with me?! I'm hooked on the "what's on your mind?" box.

Isn't it annoying when you take your car to the Wal-Mart "Quick Lube" and they tell you there's a two-hour wait... so you wander aimlessly around the store looking at stupid things you don't need, spending money you don't have for two painful hours before finally going to see if your car is ready... only to see on the receipt that they finished the job 20 minutes after you dropped it off? No phone call, no intercom page, no nothing. That's annoying. I hate Wal-Mart.

How come your car will make awkward noises for months, only to stop the day you actually get around to taking it to the shop? How does that even make sense?!

Why when you're thinking about someone you want to get over does he post a comment on your Facebook profile or leave you a cute voicemail? It's really annoying and not helpful. Or better yet: You get a notification that he posted something on your wall, only to find that he deleted it before you could even read it, which, of course, leaves you wondering what he had to say and why he didn't just leave it there. That's even more annoying. (Can you tell I'm checking Facebook while writing this blog? True story. Just happened.)

Speaking of which, do you agree with this article? I'm just curious. Maybe my problem is that I'm trying to stay friends with this guy (not an ex-boyfriend, just someone I dated for a while and am clearly still crazy about). Should I just delete him from my life? How do I go about doing that? I'm not sure I'm strong enough. Any thoughts?

Here I go again, spewing the contents of my brain/heart for all the world to see. I guess that's why I called this blog "You Read My Mind." After all, what is a blog good for if not to spill your every thought, doubt, fear, etc.? This is me, world. Take it or leave it.

Until next time...

I should never have gotten on Facebook tonight after that fireside. I wasn't going to, but stupid me, I did it anyway. That led to me getting offended over a dumb e-mail, which led to another strange e-mail, which led to a confusing voicemail, which led to me crying and not being able to sleep. Now it's 4:07 am, and my alarm will be going off in exactly 13 minutes, and I haven't slept at all. And I don't even know why I'm writing this since I don't intend on explaining it to any of you (no offense, but you'll understand if you know me at all). I'm just so frustrated and confused and tired. To top it all off, I have a paper due at 2 pm today, and I've only written about a half page of jibberish. I was supposed to finish it this weekend but got roped into doing other things (I need to learn to say no, which is another problem I have). Then I figured I could finish it after work today, but now it looks like I will be coming home to sleep instead. I don't need to fall apart right now, but I feel like I'm barely hanging onto the end of my rapidly fraying rope. Ugh!

Time to get ready for work. Wish me luck!

Update: It is now 6:40 am, and I just got back from sitting in a dark parking lot at work waiting for the shift leader to show up. I was there from 4:50 until 6:15, and nobody came except one of my other coworkers. What a joke! All that lost sleep for nothing. I sure hope this day gets better. :(

Last month I took a self-defense course called R.A.D. (Rape Aggression Defense System). Some Universities offer this program free of charge, but it's quite affordable if you're not so lucky. This isn't like other self-defense classes that teach strange techniques you probably won't remember if you ever needed to use them. They teach practical self-defense and provide opportunities for you to practice it. In addition, the one time course fee ($25) is good for a lifetime; after completing the course, you can attend any future session free of charge to refresh your skills. It's fantastic! I felt empowered after attending this class, and I highly recommend each of you ladies find a program in your area and enroll (they offer a different class for men, if any of you guys are interested).

I found this picture on the R.A.D. website. This is the gear the students and "fake attacker" wear in the simulations. I was pretty frightened knowing I was going to be attacked (even though it was fake), but I feel good now knowing I can protect myself. Click here to find a program in your area and sign up.
