Alcoholic Roommate

You guys I'm living with an alcoholic and it is exhausting!
Here favorite things to say are, "Shots! Shots! Shots!" or "I need to be drunk right now!"

Victoria: McDonald's is amazing. They throw in a free hat with your order!

I literally had to stop her from knocking on the doors of semi trucks one night. That will be the last time we eat at the truckstop! She also tried to free the cows in a parked trailer. I'm pretty sure she would have been thrown in jail or shot by a truck driver if I had not stopped that idea.

To be honest, I can't wait to see where this girl is in 30 years. 
I'm sure she will be doing something amazing in a foreign country and making my life look mediocre.
I don't mind being her sidekick at this point in life, because I really never know what each day will be like. I just want to know how we went from best friends on the playground in 1st grade to drinking wine as roommates in college. 

After walking up the steps:
Victoria: I just climbed Mt.Everest and I didn't even take a selfie!

After drunk ordering at the truckstop:
Victoria: I can totally afford this! It's only $28 and I ate like a queen.

I spend three days a week being a slave/chauffeur to a four year old and some days I get an additional four year added to the mix. Some days I leave needing a stiff drink and wanting to schedule the surgery to get my tubes tied and other days I love getting to be a kid again.

I was downloading music onto my iPod and I realized that none of them were "Sam" friendly. The majority of the songs on my iPod are not "Sam" friendly either. I think a song is okay for a four year old until a swear word gets sung and I scramble to change the song. When did that word get there? I honestly have gotten so use to swear words and inappropriate song themes that I'm shocked to hear them in a song I've listened to multiple times. I pretty much need to create a specific playlist for our car rides together. That playlist can only include girl singers, because that is what Sam prefers.

Some of my favorite conversations with the little spitfire...

After I said we couldn't go to Target
Sam: We are not best friends anymore, but tomorrow we will be again.

Being called out on my road rage
Sam: Who are you yelling at?
Me: The driver of the car in front of us.
Sam: Why?
Me: They do not know how to drive.
Sam: And you are trying to tell them?
Me: Yes.
Sam: I don't think they can hear you.
Me: I don't think they can either.
Sam: So you're really just yelling at yourself.
Me: .....You are right.

My new custody arrangement
Sam: We decided that you can live with me during the week and Ilia on the weekends.

Random Ramblings

Being a nursing major is hard work, but I definitely think that it is the right major for me. I actually enjoy working with cadavers and being able to study the human body. It's fascinating how many things work together to do a simple task. I went from working with the cadaver  and then heading straight to work. Fyi, the chick that just handed you your cups was just touching a dead body. Isn't that a fun thought?


I am once again sick. I'm starting to get nervous that I'm becoming a hypochondriac. My immune system has apparently decided to stop working the past few months. Ebola better stay far away from Wisconsin, because I will most likely get it.
I hate my job at Pizza Ranch. It has been almost a daily occurrence where one manager will tell me to do one thing and not long after I will get yelled at, by another manager, for doing exactly that. Pizza Ranch managers need to get their shit together. Feel free to tell that to the next one you encounter. Also, I have worked there for 2 1/2 years and I've only gotten one raise. It was a pathetic raise too. I show up on time, I do my job, I pretend to care about annoying ass customers, and apparently that means nothing, No wonder they are constantly looking for new employees and have a huge turnover rate.

Unfortunately, I like most of the people I work with and I have a ton of flexibility. So I'll probably stay, but if you hear in the news about a Pizza Ranch employee that totally lost her shit and went crazy, that will be me, probably after I got yelled at by one manager for doing something that another manager told me to do.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

A few days ago, one of my best friends mom got diagnosed with breast cancer. She had no suspicion before her yearly mammogram. Cancer does not have to be a death sentence. The sooner you catch it, the greater chance of beating it. Health care professionals debate whether you should start getting mammograms at 40 or 50, but my friends mom is only 44. She could feel no lumps and the mammogram allowed the doctors to diagnose the cancer at stage 1, otherwise she would not have even known she had cancer. Go get checked!

I have become that girl who spends almost all of her free time with her boyfriend. :/

There is nothing wrong with wanting to hang out with your boyfriend/girlfriend, but I really dislike it when girls have no life outside of their relationship. My dilemma (Yes, I have a dilemma regarding hanging out with my boyfriend too much. Don't judge me) is that I really like his group of friends and we hang out with them a lot. Their party style is the same as mine, they have similar senses of humor, they know how to have fun, I never have to buy my own alcohol/food, there has never even been a threat of the cops showing up, and I get along really well with all of their girlfriends. It is literally a perfect situation, except for the fact that I'm always with Andy and his friends and rarely with my own.

So please forgive me if I have not seen you in a while. It takes only 10 minutes to get to everything I mentioned above and after a long week of work and classes that's about all my lazy ass wants to drive.

I should also add that I like to hang out with Andy when it is just the two of us. I made it sound like I only use him for his friends, but we always have a good time when it is just us.

Weekend Recap:

I feel like a redneck every time I go to a party with Andy and his friends. They come up with some of the most random things to do. They wanted to play beer pong, but there wasn't any ping pong balls, so they used acorns. Who thinks of that stuff?
They buy cheap and junky cars for the sole purpose of destroying them.
There "new" junk car was used in a game of Car vs. Four wheeler.
Two people (a driver and a shooter) would ride around on the four wheeler and the goal was to pelt the car on one side. The driver of the car had to maneuver the car in order to avoid being shot on that side. That involved lots of drifting and driving erratically. 
It was such a good time! 

After we ran out of paint balls, the nice trucks and jeeps decided to join us in the field. 
There were a few close calls while drifting and spinning in the cars, but we all survived....this time. 

Two high school girls randomly showed up at this little get together. One of them was one of the guys cousins or something like that? They arrived drunk (Yes, they drove themselves) and then decided to invite some random guys. They should up in a red Jeep and were the only ones to get stuck in the field. Everyone was annoyed with them. The girls finally decided to leave, which was a ridiculous decision because they were wasted. So we took their keys and insisted that we drive them home. The 18 year old said, "I can drink and drive, because I already have a DUI." 
No one, especially people in high school, should be getting DUI's and if you have one it should be a wake up call. I will never understand the stupidity of some people and how they never learn from their mistakes. So I got to be the designated drivers for two random girls.

Besides, the two dumb ass high school girls, it was a great way to spend Friday night. After an entire week of studying it was a great stress reliever.

Random Ramblings

  • My mom came up to me and said, "You need to get a job" after I came home from a long day of working at both of my jobs. That made me feel great, because apparently two jobs doesn't even count as one in my mothers world. 

  • My parents are also mad at me, because I booked a plane ticket to Florida. Apparently, I should be paying for my education instead. Sometimes I wish my parents would just realize that if I lived my life, like they lived theirs, I would be miserable. They haven't been on a vacation in years and they rarely take time off of work. I need adventure in my life and I'm not going to put my life on hold until after I graduate college. 

  • Gilmore Girls is finally on Netflix! I have loved seeing my facebook feed filled with Gilmore Girl related things. Also, it is nice not having to worry about missing disc's or if I'll ever get my Season 1 back from Sarah. I also get the pleasure of introducing so many more people to the lovely town of Stars Hollow and all of the characters that live there. 

  • I tried an anchovy. It was disgusting and I do not recommend it. 

  • I've been struggling between wanting a life that involves traveling and being a free spirit or living a life that involves settling down with a family and a stable job. It's times like these where I wish that reincarnation was real. It wouldn't matter if I couldn't fit everything I wanted into one life, because I would have many more lives to fill with adventure.

  • Can we just talk about what is considered "good" music now days compared to even a decade or two ago? We need to raise our standards, because it is embarrassing to see what is making the charts.

  • I love re-hearing a song that you have long forgotten about. My recent favorite is Hit 'Em Up Style by Blu Cantrell. I know that I completely went against what I was saying in the previous bullet point, but this is way better than Anaconda or whatever Justin Bieber calls music.

  • One of my managers told me that I needed to go home and practice washing windows, because I apparently sucked at it. She wanted me to send her a snap chat of me practicing. I need a new job.

  • My boyfriend is constantly saying and/or texting me the cutest things. I swear that kid has a book called, "Every cute thing a boyfriend needs to say to their girlfriend". I feel bad, but I literally have started to roll my eyes when he starts saying these things, because he says them all the time! He has managed to text me "good morning" every day since we started dating...and sometimes I forget to text him back. Oops. I'm a terrible girlfriend, I know I should really appreciate it, but I suck at coming up with cheesy things to say to him. I got this text the other night out of the blue... 
    • "Good night beautiful. You're the most amazing amazing girlfriend I could ever ask for and I'm extremely lucky to have you. I just want you to know that. :)"
