Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In July I pulled brokerthanyou's hair (-5 points). In February I signed my organ donor card (28 points). In March I put gum in mdmorey's hair (-12 points). Last Monday I donated bone marrow to aelfthrytha in a life-saving procedure (300 points). Last Friday I saved a busload of nuns in Angola (326 points).

Overall, I've been nice (637 points). For Christmas I deserve a shiny red ball!

Bruised and Beaten [Aug. 8th, 2005|06:43 pm]
[mood |soresore]
[music |Brian's Star Wars Game]

So, today, the first day of RD training, was one of the toughest days I have ever been through. Not because of the new job and responsibilities (we haven’t gotten to that yet). Oh no. I wish it had been that. Instead, someone decided it would be fun to have some physical activity the first day of training and suggested the Houghton Ropes Course. Ok, for those of you who know me, I’m not a very active person. I like relaxing and hanging out. If I were back in High School, I might say the opposite, but times have changed and so have I. Anyway, the course didn’t start out to bad. First we did the human knot and some jump rope games. It was fun, but the mood soon changed. We all had to put on our harness to start the “high elevation” course. So, we got to climb rope ladders, swing across “molten jell-o”, climb this ridiculous thing called the “centipede”, and climb a telephone pole (40 ft high) just to jump off it to try and ring a bell. At first, I was so positive in my attitude about the course. I wanted to do things that I have never done before, and I was excited about the experience. Well, that changed. I will say that I attempted everything, but I didn’t complete anything. I got really scared on the rope ladder because it felt like nothing was supporting me. As for the 40 ft telephone pole, I made it to the top, but I was so exhausted from the climb that I couldn’t pull myself up on the small platform (of course, this was the last thing we did, so I was physically exhausted from everything prior). I was able to sort of jump down from the pole (it was about 36 ft in the air). As for the “centipede”….Well, I will just say that I will never go on anything called the “centipede” again. To make matters worse, the people who were our guides were complete jerks. In the situation of when I got really scared on the rope ladder, I had to beg to be let down. I was at the point of shaking and almost crying by the time the woman let me down. Also, when I was nearly dangling from the 40 ft pole, the guy kept telling me to try to get on the platform after I had failed to do so 10 times. I had to snap at him to make him realize that I had to strength left in me. Then I almost fell. And, of course, they had to make you feel stupid if you didn't accomplish the task. Anyway, I am covered with bruises. I counted 15 bruises all together in the shower. Plus, I am so sore that I just want to lie around. The only positive things that came out of this trip are: I got to meet the other RDs and created some bonds, it motivated me to lose some weight and build muscles, and I never have to do it again. Anyway, I should be going. I’m starved!

P.S. I’m excited about being Mrs. Brian Pinto!!

Updates [Jun. 8th, 2005|11:31 am]
[mood |listlesslistless]
[music |I wish I was listening to music right about now.]

Well, it’s been a while since I posted anything, so I thought I should update you on what’s going on.

I’m living in Norwood basically all summer while working in the office of Res Life. I basically do paperwork, organize, answer the phone and random stuff like that. The office does have me doing something a bit out of the ordinary this year though. I’m the RA to the summer students staying on campus. It’s the first time they have ever had staff available to the summer students, so I think that’s pretty cool. It’s pretty laid back. No write ups (thus far), and it’s nice to have people living in Norwood with me.

On mother’s day, my brother announced to my entire family that he and his wife were pregnant. I think this is the best family news that I have heard in a while. My parents basically flipped, and every week, my dad calls me and says, “Guess what! I’m going to be a grandpa!” I’m very excited about being an aunt. Considering that my brother and his wife only have sisters, it seems that the competition for “Coolest Aunt” has already begun. I’m not going to be competitive with the other aunts though. I think it’s kind of dumb. I just want to be able to hold a baby and know that it’s my niece of nephew. My sister-in-law (Fun fact...As many of you know, my boyfriend is Brian. However, my brother’s name is Ryan and he’s married to Amanda. It gets very confusing around Christmas time.) has gotten a bit of a belly! Oh yeah, their due date is 12/24/05 (Christmas Eve).

Brian and I are trying to diet. We’ve been trying to cut out a lot of the fatty, carb-loaded foods while trying not to suffer. We go for walks or bike rides almost every night. Once in a while, we reward ourselves with a small ice cream cone. I haven’t noticed any significant changes yet. Oh well. At least I am trying.

I still haven’t found out where I am going to be the RD next year. I was talking to my boss the other day (Brenda for those of you who don’t know her), and she basically said she would like to have me in the Pine Hill Suites (again…3 years in a row) and have me in Openhym my second year. Although what she said isn’t set in stone, I would really like to be in a Freshman hall, but I sort of understand the need for someone with a lot of experience in the pines. The office is hiring 9 new staff members that aren’t RAs and probably need all the experience they can get.

I think that is all I have right now. I will try to update more often. I can’t promise anything.

Finals Blow [May. 4th, 2005|12:31 pm]
[mood |groggygroggy]
[music |There's a fan. That's about it for sound.]

So, as most of you know, it's finals week. I'm not too excited about it at all. I just took my philosophy final, and I think I might have passed. To tell you truth, I really don't care at this point. I just want to graduate.

But good things can happen during finals week. I just found out that one of my exams is optional. Definitely not taking it!

Bad things can happen, too. I have to do lots and lots of housing sign outs this week. It's part of the job thats not too bad, but it sure takes out any spare time I may have.

Oh yeah, I should be finding out about my RD job next week. Everyone keeps telling me that I did wonderfully at the interview, so I'm feeling good. Let's just hope I get the job and in a good location! :)

That's about it for now. I'm exhausted and must write papers for my Music Appreciation final. Gag.

I got accepted into Grad School!! YAY!! Took long enough! Now I just have to wait to hear from Res Life about interviewing for a RD position.

Everything is slowing falling together. Yay.

[music |"Rich Girl" by Gwen Stefani]

Well, I have an update. Last Thursday, I received a call from the secretary of the Education Counseling program, and I was invited to an “Interview Day.” I basically get to go to the facility where the program is, interview with current students, and interview with one of the professors. I was very excited because I guess I actually have a good chance of getting into the program. I had heard some bad news from a few other AU Seniors who have applied here and have been rejected from Grad School. I was a bit worried for a while, but all seems to be going well now!

I also applied to be an RD here. Free housing, free meal plan, and some other benefits…very exciting stuff. Let’s hope that goes well…

Because of the very important interviews coming up (for Grad School and (hopefully) for the RD position), I had to buy a suit. That was another adventure. Brian can vouch for me that I had a hard time (considering the short notice), but I did find something very cute.

That’s all I got.

The Ultimate Male versus The Ultimate Meatball! [Mar. 11th, 2005|11:26 am]
[mood |energeticenergetic]
[music |"I Believe in a Thing Called Love" by The Darkness]

So this week AMC has been showing all 5 of the Rocky movies. When I was little, I remember watching bits and pieces of the films, so I decided to take a chance and watch the films to see if I liked them. One through Four were fantastic. Balboa is my hero. I couldn't make it through the Fifth because the hotshot boxer reminded me of an idiot that went to my high school that used to eat the milk carton after drinking the milk. I think my favorite was the second because every other sentence out of Stallone's mouth was "Yo, Adrian," and he wins the Heavyweight title. Then again, I loved Thunderlips (Who out there loves the Hulkster??) in the Third. I must admit that Stallone's body in the Fourth was NICE (minus the face), and who didn’t want to see the Russian go down? I have found a new respect for these movies. Do you fella's recommend any other movies to see? (Yes, I have seen the Rambo films, many Arnold films, and some Steven Seagal films- he's one of my dad's favorites) I am open to recommendations.

Oh yeah, no porn films please.

I just found out that Ben Stiller directed the movie "Reality Bites." I thought he was just one of the stars. Did anyone else know this??
