Whoever lives below me (she moved in when I was in Florida) must be super popular..she's ALWAYS having people over and being loud. This morning at 12:30 there was a group of people on the other side of her balcony talking and being loud. I had to tell them to be quiet cause I was trying to sleep. They're always smoking too so I can't open my windows without it smelling like an ashtray..ew. I could never do that much socializing..it's so exhausting. One time it sounded like she was having a party at 4 AM. Ugh. Marjorie said someone else complained too, so it's not just me. Of course I don't expect it to be silent in an apartment complex, but jeez, 4 AM is not the time to be loud. I seem to keep having loud downstairs neighbors :/

The weather has been so nice this week! A lot of the snow has melted and the clouds look puffy and springy! There are rain clouds out today. I love spring weather!

You have an endless curiosity and fascination with the world. You like to notice every detail around you.
You would make a great teacher, stay at home parent, or life coach. You can offer others perspective that they lack.

You Should Have a Green Name



You are down to earth, and even maybe a bit of a hippie. You are full of good vibes and compassion for the world.
You live by your convictions, and you try to set a good example for others. You believe it's important to walk your talk.

Your key to happiness is gratitude and keeping things simple. You love and appreciate the natural world more than most people.
Natural names like Jasmine, Leif, Sage, Oak, Meadow, Forrest, Skye, Clay, and Ivy would suit you.





I bet Heather is a green name too haha ;)

Poor Cheetah :( [Apr. 6th, 2014|10:46 am]
[Tags|, , , , ]

Yesterday Cheetah jumped up behind the chair I was sitting in, which I thought was weird since she doesn't usually do that. I looked behind me and she was like squatting on something like she was peeing. I got her to move and I saw a little blood where she had been sitting. I told mom and she put her in the bathroom. She kept doing the squatting thing and leaving little spots of blood on the floor. Dad picked her up and we saw a little blood on her bottom area. I was really upset and wanted to take her to the emergency vet, but my parents said to wait and watch how she does. She was walking around and meowing and purring, she seemed uncomfortable but not really in pain, she was still eating and drinking..I checked her later in the night and it seemed the bleeding had stopped. She seems ok this morning too..there's no blood in the bed she's laying in. Mom's gonna take her to the vet tomorrow..maybe she has a urinary infection. I hope she'll be ok..I hate seeing animals with something wrong with them :(

I got home last night, yayy! On one of the flights I watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty..I had no idea Eyjafjallajokull was in that movie!! (Though they spelled it wrong..haha) It was so funny when the main character was failing miserably at pronouncing it haha. I loved the glacier scenes of course. ;) Iceland is so pretty. On the flight to Fairbanks I noticed a woman in a bright blue shirt that said "Fairbanks" on it. Well after we landed I was walking to the door to see if dad was there yet..well a guy came in and was like "hey I know you!" He used to work with mom, and relieved her at Northway! (He just retired) The woman in the blue shirt was his wife!! OMG so weird haha. I love the flights to Fairbanks, everyone is cheerful and seems to know each other and it just feels so relaxed. I think I saw the Northern Lights from the plane too, though they were faint..cool! Abby was SO happy to see me hehe. <3 Awww. Today I went back to work..everyone was genuinely happy to see me. I so love that place and truly being liked. <3 I have a lot to catch up on though haha. It's nice to be at my own apartment again too!

Would you rather tell your wife at a fashion show what a fat pig she is or boo your child at their school play during their performance? WTF?!

They really wanted us to spend the night the other day, but we chose today instead. It's always sad to end a vacation, but I can't wait to work at the bookstore again and see Abby!

Today mom and I went to Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park ("Homosassa" is fun to say haha). I vaguely remember going there in 2006 too. They have lots of cool animals..manatees, foxes, bears, wolves, lots of birds, etc. The springs are clear and pretty too. It's a very nice park. I probably took too many pics, but I can't help it, I love animals haha

Food and belly dancing, oh my [Mar. 29th, 2014|10:20 am]
[Tags|, , , , ]

Yesterday mom and I went to visit a guy she used to work with (Gus) that recently retired and his wife and four kids. They live an hour or so from grandpa's house. Along the way we shopped at Bealls and got lunch, which was a mistake cause his wife made lunch and like forced us to eat two sandwiches haha. They're both from Jordan, which is cool. We hung out at their house for awhile and checked out some shops after their kids got home from school. We went to dinner at a Persian-Mediterranean restaurant. I really wasn't hungry yet, but I still ate some..it was pretty good. I was STUFFED but Gus's wife was like "eat more, please! Get some more!" I was like OMG no way lol. I hate when people do that. :P On Friday and Saturday they have a belly dancer for entertainment. That was cool..I could never move my body like that haha. People literally threw money at her haha! She performed three times..the third time was like 9 PM and we were some of the only customers left, so it was like a private show haha. Gus's wife danced with her..she OWNED it. She was so good!! I kinda wanted to dance to, but I was way too shy and scared. After dancing with other people at our table, she looked at me and I was like "uh oh, it's my turn!" haha. I grabbed mom when she took my hand and was like "you're coming with me, I'm not doing this alone!!" We probably looked like awkward flailing people, but whatever, it was fun haha. It's very rare I can let go like that, but I was like "you only live once right?" Gus's wife got us on video. D: I'm not sure if I ever want to see that haha. It was a fun night though. It was like 12:30 when we got back to grandpa's house..bed was nice :P

I keep hearing thunder and there are storms on the radar..we're under a tornado watch. Ughh..I hope we don't get anything too bad
