Seriously grow up!

cranky

current mood: cranky
current song: sing-sing

I'm basically writing all this crap in this blog to vent my frustrations out. Some of you know whom I am referring to, as you have heard me complain about some of these things. But the person who I am speaking to does not have access to this site and will not be able to see this. So don't take any of these questions personally, as I am more than likely not directing them to you.

Really?:
I mean okay, I've known you for how long? Since, junior high? So why haven't you at least grown past the mentality of a 16 year old girl? I just don't understand it. Please don't snap at us when we ask you if you are okay, I simple "I'm not in the mood right now," would suffice. Please acknowledge the fact that yes, we indeed have nice things, and we don't want them to be f-ed up. Yeah, we take care of these things so we can get maximum use out of them. So you have a dog, that's great. But dogs don't belong in a room 36 hours at a time, and no, I will not take care of your dog when I'm in town. I have my own dog, and I take care of him, because he's a dog, not a novelty. Seriously, and the stink in the apartment does come from your dog, because she's in a room for 36 hours at a time, where else is she going to relieve herself? And now your dog is injured and you wonder why, maybe it's the best thing to ever happen to the dog. Seriously, you should be a responsible adult if you decide to have sex. Yeah yeah sex is nice, but you know he has a kid already on the way. But you don't take the precautions yourself to protect yourself from that situation. That's just plain stupid. You can't always depend on the morning after pill, and if you think that birth control messes you up, what do you think the morning after pill does? It's not a magic problem solver, obviously. But you already knew that. I am really concerned with your constant need for sympathy also, sure you feel unappreciated or beautiful and you have to work 8 hour shifts at work. But here's a secret, SO DOES EVERYONE ELSE! These are everyday problems that everyone faces, but we all just muddle through it or get over it. I understand once in a blue moon you have this need to vent, but it gets old after the hundredth time in a week listening to you complain how sucky life is. Please clean up after yourself. I don't care what you do in your room, but we are tired of cleaning up after you. Like your red hair dye that's everywhere in the bathroom. Your empty chip bags that are right at the front door, or your dishes that take over the kitchen sink. Are those extra two to three minutes to throw away or clean stuff really that important? Lastly, please stop mooching off of us, sure we're more than happy to share, but don't look at us with doe eyes everytime we cook or go get our own food. I don't like it when people stare us down when we're enjoying a meal only to get a piece of the action. We'll offer you stuff, but just don't be so desperate during meal times.

I really do feel better after venting all this out. Don't think I haven't tried to talk to this particular person about this stuff, because I have. But I have yet to see any results.

So I'm sitting in my Populations and Ecology class, eating a bagel, listening to discussion, no big whoop. My prof is big on conspicuous consumption and how we all just consume all the time and how we're basically going to hell for it. Anyway, he brings up Black Friday and asks if anyone participated in it. Not surprisingly, the trendy-looking blonde in the front row shoots her hand up. He asked her how much she spent, she enthusiastically replys, "Only about $3,000, I shopped for 16 hours that day. But my aunt spent five grand." I almost choked on my bagel. Holy crap man! What the hell are you buying to spend 3 grand in one day? I mean seriously, I'm no stranger to binge buying but this girl was mind boggling. The worst part was, she seemed so proud of the fact that she spent so much money. Everyone in class, including myself were just amazed and disgusted all at the same time. She explained that she did a lot of shopping for other people, but mostly for herself, because no other time during the year can she find such deals. Ugh, it made me ill thinking about it. I can't say that if I came into money I would not do such things, but it seems a bit ridiculous to spend that much. I can't even imagine what I would do with three grand. Sometimes it's mind boggling how people spend their money and time.

REAL SEX!? They can do that!?

So apparently there's this movie called SHORTBUS, that is coming out to indie theaters. My KC friends and I have decided to go see it tonight. I'm a little on the cautious side when it comes to the viewing of the movie. Although it has had some positive reviews, there are many scenes where the actors participate in "real sex" scenes. I was baffled by the undertaking of this movie, but it should be interesting. The director worked on HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY ITCH and from the nine minutes I've seen of that movie it looks good. So I'll let you guys know about this movie, SHORTBUS, it seems to me it'll be an interesting...ride.

All apologies...

current mood: YAY!!

So I'm not known for being very ballsy, but last night was probably the last straw. I love my friends, I love my dog, and you all know I love my boyfriend. I would probably do anything for them and I will until my dying breathe. So when someone berades them without any warrant and uses excuses, like stress for such warrent, I'm not going to have respect for said person. There is no reason in the world to take your stress out on anyone but yourself. I mean yes, we all get stressed, but if I was testy with everyone when I was stressed I wouldn't have any friends. And I think that's why you have friends, so you can de-stress and have fun with them. I don't have any regrets for calling someone out, because sometimes that's needed, it's a necessary evil. Also if building a life with someone for seven years and loving my life with my pet, counts as a pathetic existence, then yes, I am very pathetic person. A very pathetic person who is in love and has a wonderful dog and wonderful friends. Hmmm, I'm pretty lucky, no, I'm ridiculously lucky. So that's what I wanted to say, that and no one calls Chris an asshole, unless that person is Ted or Me. Oh and Watson isn't a fucking dog, he's just a dog who sleeps. But you guys knew that already, just read my pathetic livejournal.

I don't mean to be bitchy but...

October 18th, 2006 (10:54 pm)
cheerful

current mood: I'm all grown up now!!!

So I've come to the realization that I'm not mature. Why do you think that Gina? You might be asking yourself. It's because I need a change, I have what the doctors call "a pathetic existence." I need to, how do you say, "grow up." How am I going to achieve this great level of maturity? I'm glad you asked, because I will list my three-point plan for you, my dear friends.

1. First, instead of law school, I'm thinking about pursuing my MBA. Who needs to cite laws and legal jargan day in and day out, when I can have every Friday off, leaving Thursday nights open for me to go drink with my "grown up" friends, and forget about all the other "juveniles" that have befriended me. You guys don't have networking. Yes, this is an awesome plan.

2. I will start feverishly chain-smoking to deal with the gazillion things I have to do everyday. (That includes blog readings). I mean there are people dying of lung cancer, but nothing beats a good cigarette. So for good measure, I will enact a health plan that will cancel out my disease(no not cancer silly,my addiction to cigarettes). I know excercise wont't make up for my cigarette addiction, but that can be our little secret.

3. Sorry you guys, I'm going to be doing a lot of work and I will be under a lot of stress. But you won't know what that feels like, because I'll be getting an MBA, undergrad is sooooo easy. So if I'm a bitch to you, please excuse it, afterall I am an adult. And sometimes adults can be bitchy.

I hope you guys understand, I mean it's all part of growing up. You know how it is, MBA, Cigarettes, and Bitchiness, they are all needed for me to grow as a person, and most importantly an independent woman. All this will be finalized when I go to Kansas City this weekend, where I will consult with my asshole boyfriend. Don't worry Uncle Mike, my fucking dog is coming with me.

(Any questions or comments are welcomed, but I cannot guarantee that I will welcome any negative comments. Oh what the hell, I'll be passive aggressive about it, and just treat you like shit when I see you next. Because nobody puts baby in the corner. I mean, nobody calls me out on my bullshit.)

Well finally the no-smoking initiative was approved by CoMO's city council. I have to admit I am pretty stoked about it!! I will no longer have to dread going out and coming home smelling like smoke. I know this is a highly debated topic, but if a city like NYC can deal with something like this, then little podunk Columbia can. And although I have a few friends that smoke, I don't think stepping outside to smoke will kill them. I like my lungs pink and healthy, and I like air, so shoot me.

Bitch bitch bitch

hungry

current location: Brady
current mood: I need food.

Keep in mind, I'm not referring to anyone in particular in this post. It's mostly been a combination of people that have been doing this lately. And I am literally at my wits' end trying to keep up with everyone and trying to be the apathetic friend, but no more, and now to the good stuff.

I have been noticing a lot of the self-pitying, nobody-likes-me-and/or-calls-me behavior and/or rants going on. To these particular people I'm going to refer to you as whiner-babies. Congratulations you guys, you have lived up to your names. It should be understandable that yes, people will forget to call when things happen or sometimes people will do things that you don't want to do, but I'm really getting sick of the whole implications that your friends are obligated to call you at every moment and give you notice on what's going on. In those situations you have many options you whiner-babies can follow:

1.If you know an event is going down, and no one has called you, then call your friends, see what's up. Chances are, they didn't remember to call you or were under the impression you knew already. And if you did know beforehand from said friends, chances are you were previously invited to come. So if that is the case why not just join them, instead of sitting at home waiting for a call and then bitching about it later?
2.The said bitching from the previous choice is not going to accomplish anything. If something were to come out of it, it most likely will be your friends calling you a little bitch for bitching about it. So stop complaining.
3. Instead of you expecting people to call you with plans, make your own plans and call your friends. Understandably, yes, communication lines go both ways. But the expectation of calls or notifications for fun events is getting noticeably high. Stop sitting on your ass feeling sorry for yourself and go out and do something. Maybe then your friends will be waiting for your calls instead of vice versa.
4. If you find yourself in a position where you are bored or the event that you have attended did not meet up to your expectations, you always have the option to leave. No one is holding a gun to your head and telling you to stay. If you leave, be polite about it and your friends will understand. There is a thing called free-will, you might want to exercise it once in a while.
5.If you complain about an event going on, or have expressed strong opposition to it in the past, chances are your friends are not going to invite you to said event. Why bother? We know you don't like it and we know you probably would not enjoy it. We want to have fun too, we shouldn't always have to cater to you.
6. If friends are out and about and invite you and you say "Why yes, thank you for inviting me, I'll see you in a couple of minutes." Please keep in mind that to us a couple of minutes does not exceed 10 minutes. Leaving your friends waiting over an hour is rude, at least have the decency to call and say you are running late.
7. Also keep in mind that your friends have other groups of friends (WHAH?!!!). Yeah, amazingly enough, the world does not revolve around you. So if you get upset that some people sometimes do things with OTHER people then maybe you shouldn't have friends, because friends share and sharing is what makes the world go round. (I heard that from a two year old, yes I know she is quite amazing.) Or maybe you should go out and make new friends.

Again, I'm not trying to step on anyone's toes but really, I don't know how else to put it. It's like what I tell my daycare kids, you guys have choices, whether or not you use them is up to you. I really do enjoy all of my friends, but of the late, you guys have really gotten on my nerves. Some of you already know how I feel, and I wasn't crazy about posting a blog about it. But eh, whatever, right? It's up to you whiney-babies.

current song: Super Nanny

It's been another amazing weekend with Chris and I can't wait for the two weeks to be over so I can see him again. I didn't really care what we did this weekend just as long as we were together. I did feel bad I spent so much of his money, but he didn't seem to care this time. I don't know, this seperation has been good for us. I have been so busy lately that I haven't focused on how much I miss him, but when I get to see him I get so happy. I hope this keeps up, as I feel like I'm falling in love for the first time all over again. I never fell out of love with him, but I think we got so routine with each other that we took each other for granted. Never again. I appreciate everything he does for me, and how he pushes me so hard to be better than what I am now. He is such an amazing man. Oy vey.


PS. I apologize for the sappiness of this post, but I'm pretty happy right now.

So about last post, yeah, let's just say that things got a little out of hand last night. I mean nothing embarrassing or horrible happened, but I went over my drinking limit in about an hour. Man shots get to me and they get to me fast. I am a bit disappointed in myself, but I won't deny that I had tons of fun with Erik, Mike and Josh. Tonight I'm sticking to water or something non-alcoholic as I will designate myself sober driver. I'm not going through what I went through this morning ever again. And a big thanks goes out to Greg and Nick for taking care of my drunken ass and my dog, as I was too intoxicated to let him out to piss last night. I can feel the buds of motherhood growing within me now.
