You know what's weird? When you talk to someone (on aim) that you haven't spoken with in a long time. You have the usual chit chat, and they ask if your seeing anyone. You say no. And then they ask you why? As if your supposed to defend your right to be single!
Yes, I will admit being single isn't the greatest thing, all the time. But why should I have to defend myself? Shouldn't me saying, that I'm not seeing someone be ENOUGH!

"..Life ain't always beautiful
You think you're on your way
And it's just a dead end road at the end of the day
But the struggle makes you stronger
And the changes make you wise
And happiness has it's own way of takin' it sweet time..."
"...If you're going through hell
Keep on going, Don't slow down
If you're scared, don't show it
You might get out
Before the devil even knows you're there.."

He who makes peace in High Places, He will make
peace for us and for all Israel and let us say, Amen.

I've never been an overly religous person, but sometimes thoughts especially positive ones can help. As most of you know, there is tremdous conflicts going on in Israel right now, and things have gotten horedus. My dad's sister (my Doda Sharon) lives in Hafia, and her apartment was bombed yesterday. As far as we know, she's doing ok- going from bomb shelter, to bomb shelter. She refuses to come here, despite everyone in the family pleas and offers. The best we can do is hope, pray and try to stay postive. However, it's not that easy.
I was in Traverse City, when I got the call from my mom, and naturally she was upset. However, my Dad's behaviors are what really get to me. He's been really upset, and that to me... is the hardest to take.
There's been trouble there before, and things have always worked for the country and for my family. However, this time- the future does not look so bright. I can only hope and pray that our luck will continue. :/

Wow, It's still weird to imagine that I'm 22.... I'm sure I'll be more articulate tommorw, but right now- it's still hard to belive that a) it's my birthday and b) I'm 22. It's so weird, to say the least.|

Well, this was most definitly one of the most dramatics weeks, on ALL
sorts of levels. But as always the case, everything worked out just
fine... or it will be fine, either way, it's all good and I feel SO
This weekend was kinda random, cause after EVERYTHING this week
all I really wanted to do was sleep and get homework done, but I ended
up running into Jackie Frincke on Friday after class (as I was calling
her!) and our two minute chat, turned into a lunch date, which turned
into me joining one of her friends to watch her play, which was about
cheese. It was a fun time, and I'm glad I got to hang out with everyone
and see Jackie shine, as always. But, I couldn't stay to long cause I
had a party to attend.
Now, prior to the party I decided that I wasn't going to drink b/c
after the past week... I don't think ANYONE would want to deal with me
drunk, anyway- I went over to Abby's apartment for a Long Island party.
It was kinda weird b/c Abby wasn't there, but it was fun to hangout
with her roomies although, I def. could of avoided ALL the drama that
occured that night. I also thought it was funny that I knew where
everything was there, cause I can't always find things in my own
apartment :P. Anyway, long story short- Abby's roomie and her boyfriend
had some drama and she was upset (understandly so) and it just broke my
heart to see. I guess it's a personal thing- but if if any boyfriend of
mine EVER hit me in the face w/ anything- he'd be GONE so fast, he
wouldn't even know what hit him. But then again, I've never been in her
place.. so I can't chose for her oviously. The rest of the party was
lots of drunken drama, but over all a very good time. It's also a very
impowering feeling to be the only sober person at a party, and yes... I
took a LOT less pictures :P.
I am still in shock by the fact that I slept until 1:42 PM on Saturday,
but I got over it and made a pretty productive use of my day: laundary,
cooking, some cleaning and lots of errands. Then, I got ready to
see Auto-Jill and 'my' Matthew Clark... definitly good times. Minus the
fact that, the jews and I aren't 'scene' at ALL and were horribly out
of place among the high school 'scene' kids of Mt. Pleasant... I'm
still the offical band photographer apparently :P. And the boys were
still sweet-- they really are coming along well, I'm proud :).
I headed home pretty much after the show, cause I had work this morning
at 8am. On my way there, I was chattin' it up with my G (seriously, I
feel like I have lived on the phone the past week, having wonderful
conversations with wonderful people... but hot DAMN my phone bill is
going to be HIGH this month) and the roads were really not the best and
all a sudden I started to slide on some black ice. So, super sweet me
managed to slide across 127 and end up on LEFT (I started out on the
right) side of the road half in a ditch, and half on the side of the
road. Yes, very not sweet. However, 4 people and one cop all stopped to
see if I was ok- which was really nice, and it only took about 30
minutes for the tow truck to get to me. So, I was pissed about having
to pay 80 freakin' dollars to get out, but I was very lucky that I'm
not hurt and b/c I was the ONLY car on the road I didn't crash into
anyone else either. My car is still vibrating, but the tow truck guy
told me if I get it washed the mud will come out of my tires, and it
will stop. So, hopefully that will work otherwise.. I'll have to figure
This was also just a 'kicker', because this 8am was probally one of my
last at the Clare Home. I really have gotten used to the residents
there, along with my co-workers, but if they don't have hours.. they
don't have hours. It was a good shift and I got to work with my Boss
who I love, and then my favorite co-worker Andrea and found out she's
moving to Ann Arbor!! I'm really exicted for her, she's been through
more than anyone I know and is really just an inspiration :). The only
semi-downside was that I got into work at 8:30 AM and didn't leave
untill 8 PM yay- forever shifts! But... I def. need the money so I
guess it works out.
I was going to write MORE in here, but I figure this is more than long enough for now-- hope you weren't to bored :P.
Ps. One year ago today, Savitha Geri and I were in Canada doing karaoyke and celerbrating Valentines' Day. <3
