I’m back Hopefully.

I’m back finally. Although right now I’m still borrowing a connection from a neighbor. Todd and I finally moved into our new place, but with limited internet connections and a very very very very slow lap top (246 MB RAM or some wierd number) so I haven’t been doing much typing because the computer freaks out.

But I’ll be getting a more stable connection by June 5th but I still won’t be able to play KQ 😦 Todd’s computer died, and we just sent in the motherboard today. We tried building a new one, but had a ton of problems. So we took it back.

I haven’t been playing neopets much due to this computer and limited connection.  So I hope I’ll be more active around then especially with ACIV.

By the way I’m TEAM DARIGAN!! (Did I spell it correctly?). I can’t wait to play it but I hope my regular only 1 gig ram computer can play it. I’d be especially upset if it couldn’t, but I believe I did well with it last year.

Anyone want to donate a really exciting computer to me? HAHA. I’m an aspiring teacher. I’d like to teach 1st grade. Yep I figured out my major. Before I picked kindergarten but, its a separate major and goes with daycare, which I don’t want to do. I’ve got 2 more years or more of schooling.

So please bare with me as I get back to blogging and getting back into the swing of things, my office is not finished yet either. So yep that’s what’s up.

I did make a twitter you can follow me my username is Danniegurl. I’m going to tell you I’m a boring person, and update about life, you know like going to work, cleaning playing with the cats etc. But feel free to follow me and give me some @ replies. I might make an account for neopets (separate from my other one, because it fwds to my facebook), but it all depends on how much I get into it.

Speaking about twitter Jellyneo has a twitter go search them too.

life as we know it.

So I think I’m going to be blogging a lot more about general stuff and not just neopets because this is kind of my outlet for the stuff in my life or my day to day junk that no on would really care about! HAHA! Anyways So I went to school today but only for English I skipped Spanish and Math. There was no reason for it really except I just didn’t want to go and sit in the class. But I’ll be going Tuesday! I’m thinking of going into being a teacher. I think I might like to teach Kindergarder or First grade, but I’m not sure yet as my patients level isn’t that low yet and so I’d have to keep myself in check…so I think I’m just going to go and get my liberal arts degree first and then build on that so if I want to be a teacher I can be a teacher even with that.

At the Library

Well Todd is in a lesson right now so I stopped by the library to hang out. The problem is I have $11 in late fees so I can’t check out any books until I apply a payment to the account. I really need something to read for next week when I fly. *sigh*

I’m in the weirdest mood. It’s a kind of bitchy mood and I’m not sure why. I do think though that one of the things to do with it is that Jenni is having a baby…and well I’m jealous  of it. The reason I’m jealous of it, is because it’s my “thing” something I’m aspiring to. I want to be a mom so badly, and I’m not sure why, everyone says I’m young, which maybe true, but my boyfriend is not. I don’t want him JUST having a baby when he’s 40. It has to be before then. I want a baby badly I want my own family. I guess I’m slightly unhappy. I think I’m unhappy because of our money situation at the moment really sucks. I need to work more, but once school starts I may have to cut back! I hate it. I hate having to work, but I do understand the need to do so. I just want to figure out what exactly I’m going to school for, because I really don’t have a clue, and yet it’s only my 2nd semester in college I’d like to know what I’m striving toward. I want to do something I’ll like or even love. I was thinking of going to be a psycologist, but I’m not sure if that’s something I really want to do. I think I’m more opinionated then anything, but my friends have more often then not come to me for advice that they couldn’t talk to their parents about or things they think their parents might not know. But I’m not sure I completely would love the job. I want to have the capabilitry to go to work when I need to/want to. I’d love to be a SAHM (Stay at home mom). It’s something I long to do. I am so prepared in knowing hopefully what to do for a baby but I’m not mentally, or financially ready to have one, and that’s my down fall. So my goals are to get a job with financial security, and then have a kid. But people say you’ll never be financially ready for a child. But I want to be able to provide for my children. I want them to be able to go to camp, or get a tutor if they need it, and not rely on whether or not mommy’s paycheck can cover the costs of that in addition to the bills. My grandma wants me to be a nurse, but there are so many things you need to remember, and so many names of things I just can’t pronounce. Would you want a nurse working with you if they couldn’t pronounce your problem? I wouldn’t. Less I could tell they had a speech problem or something. I just don’t know what I want to do. I want that job that can’t be outsourced. Because what I really wanted to do, was be a web disigner, but sadly once I get out of college my job will go to India, or Sinapore, or Japan. Places with people who have more edu, and possibly will work for less? I mean why would someone out source a job if they’d have to pay more? Isn’t that what the game’s all about??

I just don’t know. And I hate the fact that even my best friend thinks I complain and bitch too much. I’m not exactly a bitch, I mean some times I do it intentionally, but other times I think there is something wrong with me. I just don’t understand why I can’t be like a “normal” person and not care what that car next to me is doing, or how my boyfriend doesn’t do the things I want right away. I don’t like how I’m acting and yet when I catch myself doing it, I do try and stop but it never seems to last. It’s like I can’t control this impulse to control….which is weird when you say it like that. I have this need to control that can’t be controlled….0.o? Quite strange. I’ve been in councelling and none of that seemed to help. I was thinking of going to an anger management class but I’m not sure if you have to pay, because I don’t have money, and I’m not sure it’s an anger problem.
I mean how am I supposed to figure this out??? Gah.
I’m only angry when things aren’t done the way I want it, how I want it, when I want it etc. So you can imagine whats it’s like to live with someone like me. Some control freak. I mean I do admit I’m not extremely bad as some of the other control people I’ve seen, but it could get worse and I don’t want it to.  I just have no idea.

Oh and I’m annoyed with living in the place I do. but I’ll save that for another post. Unless you guys ask.

I just can’t believe I’m jealous of my best friend. I think one of the other things I’m jealous of is the support and love she’s recieving from her family. They don’t care she’s young (she’ll be 20 in July) they don’t care she’s not legally married they know she’s happy and accept that. However I don’t think that would be the same for my family. I think my family would not be happy about it. I think they’d pressure me into knowing my financial status if I can afford the things I need. They disagree if I had to get state assistance, they wouldn’t care that I’m happy. And I think it would stress me out to no end. I do think though Todd’s family would be accepting and loving no matter what. His younger brothers’ girlfriend is prengnant right now, they are not married and as far as I know haven’t been dating for too long. But his mom is happy. It’ll be her first grandchild. She’d prolly give a lecture, but that’s fine she wouldn’t mean it in a condicending way I know my family would. I think no matter how old I’d be I’d be afriad to tell my family. I’d probably tell them around when I started to show to be honest. I mean who knows that’s something I’ve wanted for a while, and I might not be able NOT to tell them because of excitement, but when I told everyone that Jenni is pregnant I got the “Well don’t you go and get pregnant” like just because she is I’m going to, which was the initial plan, but it wasn’t for like 5 years. Theirs just happened. I want a child badly, but like I said I want to have some financial stability. Be able to save and such. And at the moment with the place I live it isn’t possible.

*sigh*

This is what…

This is what it’s like when you walk around my house.

I’m in my office and I may have 1 cat in there when the door is open. In the hallway outside my office there are maybe 2 cats you see as you’re walking by. When I get to the stairs there is another 2 cats on a couple of the steps. When I get down stairs there is one on the top of the cat pole. While I walk through this there is one following behind me.
And lastly my lone cat is in my bedroom.

I swear one time today while I was going up the steps about 4 cats where at the top waiting.

Lol. I know we’re nuts we love our cats.

Scooter is getting so big. The kittens were born in August of 07 and man he is HUGE! He’s the biggest of them all, we think he’s pure Ragdoll erm, well not pure pure as he’s got some manx characteristics to him but mostly he’s Ragdoll.

I’m so bored. Todd’s at work, I’m not hungry, I’m not tired, and there’s nothing on right now.

LALALALALA

Tomorrow I’m going to my grandma’s house to do some work for some mula! $$ I’ve got to pick up my W-2 from Ace as they hadn’t even sent it and I was supposed to get it Oh I don’t know before January 21, 2008….yea…. Then on Sunday I’m going back to Grandma’s for Easter dinner, even though I don’t believe in god.

Yes my post is all over the place.
I have no comments to reply to right now *tear*
My Jaw hurts from chewing too much gum, I know shame shame.

I’m thinking of Majoring in Web Design as it’s a job you can do from any place, Hospitals, Schools, Cafes, Diners, Book stores, etc etc. I can also do it from home if I wanted and start my own business, but I want experience before I do that. I also would want a business degree to go with that to go in with that so people who employ me will know I’ve got the credentials if I might not have the experience down the road.

*saddened* I got an 85/100 on my English paper about Scottsdale Vs. Phoenix as I didn’t grammar check because I’m not so great at it, and I wrote the paper last minute so couldn’t check it really.
At least it’s an 85, but it brought my grade down to an 85 or 88. I want it to go back to an A. It was at I think 95, it’s also because of my attendence, it sucks because I don’t want to go to school when I’m tired, I mean once I’m there I’m fine, but it’s that initial time before when I’m getting out of bed again and don’t want to leave because I want to spend time with Todd, but I guess I should start doing it more so I can accomplish my goals.

Here’s my paper for English 101. It’s about two cities in Arizona.
One is Scottsdale and one is Phoenix, it’s a comparison essay.
This is my First Draft before I made SOME corrections.

Phoenix vs. Scottsdale

 

            Danielle was driving her old beat up 1987 Toyota Camry in the city of Scottsdale in Arizona, and she looked completely out of place. The cars that were driven in that area were Mercedes, BMW, Acura, Lexus, etc cars of high end, she felt very out of place. There are many differences between the city of Phoenix and the city of Scottsdale in Arizona; some of the areas they differ are appearance, the working class, and people’s attitudes that live in those cities.

            The city of Phoenix has some lower price housing, roads that are rough and many cars that are beat up. The appearance of Phoenix when one looks around has a cozy feel to it. Many houses are one level ranches with a car port, a one car or two car garage. Most of them are single family homes that looked lived in and have children’s toys in the front yard. Many of the houses can range from $300,000 dollars or lower. One very rarely finds a house that is over a million dollars. Many people can get away with driving old beat up cars in this area. People often drive with a broken windshield, broken bumpers, and a dent here or there.

            The working class of Phoenix consists of a range from poor to middle class people. As far as money is concerned Phoenix very rarely flaunts it. It isn’t that people don’t have a lot of money but the people of Phoenix keep it to themselves and usually only buy the necessities.

            The attitudes that Phoenix people hold is one that is friendly and nice. Usually if a person needs directions somewhere, there is always someone willing to help. People are a little more polite and explain what they would like from a shop personal if they are out and about shopping. One who works in Phoenix and waits on fellow Phoenix natives, doesn’t usually come across a rude or inconsiderate person right off where they work.
            All this is different for the city of Scottsdale. In Scottsdale when one looks around one sees luxurious homes often ranging in price from $400,000 and up past the million dollar mark. The homes usually have a two car garage, and can sometimes be two stories, but are usually one story ranches as well; however they consist of a larger floor plan then that of Phoenix. In Scottsdale there are many upscale shopping malls as well as upscale restaurants that one can get valet parking. Fashion Square, a large mall in Downtown Scottsdale, has valet parking in their parking garages. Many of the cars in Scottsdale are that of high end, often times one will see; Porches, Boxers, Mercedes, Acura, Lexus etc, the list can go on. Usually these cars are only a few years old, and if it isn’t an adult driving one it is a sixteen year old boy or girl.  

            Unlike the working class of Phoenix, Scottsdale consists of many doctors. The range of class in Scottsdale is from the middle to high class of income. For some house holds many of the women are stay at home moms for most of their children’s life, which tells one there is money to live off of for a family, while one adult family member works.
            The attitude of Scottsdale is completely different from that of Phoenix. In Scottsdale one usually feels inferior if one does not own the high end cars, purses, or the like. The people of Scottsdale often carry on rude and sarcastic attitudes towards people who work, and act as though these people who are working in their area, usually in retail, don’t have a clue about what they are talking about. More often the females of Scottsdale carry the torch for rude, and impatience when it comes to shopping in a retail store. It seems that the people of Scottsdale expect one to know what they are thinking because they are not able to describe the product they are looking for in depth. The children who are in the High Schools are just as bad if not worse. “Clicks” or groups are formed not by the usual standards of high school, but by what car one drives, and how much money one parents have, because with out those two things one will not be able to hang out with the popular crowd and their various vacations the group takes together.

            Unlike Phoenix, Scottsdale is a rich class, where as Phoenix is a lower class in comparison to them. Although Scottsdale is more luxurious this author prefers to live in the city of Phoenix, not because of the class, but because of the personalities of the people who live there. The people of Phoenix usually have more patience with the working class, because they understand the pressures of working and needing a pay check.

So please let me know what you think.
If you guys want I’ll post my first essay in which I got a 105/100 my first College Essay ever and I got the highest grade possible and had to read it to the class.

*****NOTE*****

IF ANYONE STEALS THIS PAPER AND USES IT FOR THEIR OWN, THERE IS A PROGRAM THAT HAS MY PAPER ON IT AND WILL GET YOU NO CREDIT ON YOUR GRADE IF YOU’RE STUPID ENOUGH TO USE IT.

THAT WOULD BE PLAGIARISM.

And the World Turns

I’m not on as often as I have been but what can you do? I’ve been reading books that I checked out of the library.
Right now I’m reading a book called boy toy sounds like its about this kid who got molested!! I can’t believe it, only he’s 18 now and she’s out of jail/prison.

Anyways Todds looking for a night job, and I’ve gotten some more babysitting gigs which is good we need the money before we go on Vacation! I can’t wait to go, but I’m going to miss my “kids”, as they can’t come with =( hotels don’t seem to let pets, + we’re taking a train so it’d be more difficult.

Today my friend Jenni came over and was seeing my “kids” she kept saying “aww I want a kitty I want a kitty, can I have a kitty??” Well I told her we had a big kitty we were trying to find a new home for, so she took our big kitty Sabrina home with her. I’m very happy that she took her, because I can still see her, and I know she’s going to a great home! She just loves people but doesn’t get a long with small kids. But I’m very very happy!!

My dad paid for College, which is good I start in January I’m very excited I just hope I can keep up, that’s why I’ve asked my dad to buy my books early. So I can study them ahead of time. I’m just really scared of failing, I don’t want to fail, I want to make sure I study hard. So I’m probably going to have to cut back on the Neopets, and internet surfing, and tv, and whatever else will prevent me from doing quality work.

That’s my update for now.

Schooling, College? Neopets?

So today I went to PVCC the local community college near my house. I am working on going to college and getting my core classes out of the way, English. Math, and a few other non essentials. So it looks like I won’t be starting until January, but the price tag for ONE SEMESTER is around $1372.65 for all the classes, fees, books and supplies I may need. Isn’t that a lot?? I’m excited to go back to school though I haven’t been doing too much except reading books.

Not too much going on Neopets for me. I made 1m, I’ve now got 1.1m YAY! I really want to get that adam avie. I also really really want a purple feather boa!! AUGH I wish it wasn’t an UB. I won the treasure in Deserted Tomb today, but I was too lazy to Screenie it.

My boyfriend and I are taking in 3 kittens. We need to get them their shots, and spayed and neutered. I put an ad out on CL for free kitty stuff because I really want a kitty condo, but they are so expensive plus with not having a lot of $ means that it’s a lot more difficult to get the items that our 4 cats will need. We need litter, food, toys, beds, collars, tags, shots, surgeries, endless, but they are our children and they make us happy.

Thats about it.
