Whats my conflict?

I am writing the final paper to my conflict class. What is my conflict? The damn employment system in California right now....However I cannot write that. Someone, anyone seriously please kill me if I ever mention getting another damn degree after this. Or at the very least remind how much I hated doing this degree.

Back to work

-Yay! I am officially back to work. It is only Target and it is only 30 hours a week but I am back to work. This makes me so happy you cannot even begin to fathom.

-I have been on 2 really good hikes.

-I have been hanging out a ton with my girl Carrie.

-I have managed to piss off my mom because of what I want as a tattoo. Jane Eyre, the book...

-I have managed to actually do well in a class for the first time in a while.

I don't think I have anything else to be proud of. Darnit! I was thinking I had this whole list of stuff and I am just not that cool.
I do however have house guests from Germany, two men. A father and son who are friends of my step-dads. The son is going with my girlfriend and I when we go bowling. He is also going to a club with us. He is a really nice guy.

I am still wishing I was back in a library. I miss is more than I ever thought possible.

I think that is all for now. Toodles!

Need to work

So I guess you could say I have been on vacation since September 20th. I haven't worked. Now I was working close to 60-70 hours a week before I moved back to California. While this was killing me, it kept me from being bored.
So when I found out my transfer did not go through, I was not totally sad as I believed I needed a vacation.
Ok well vacation needs to end now as I am bored out of my freaking mind. Seriously! I never really read while in library school, simply because I was busy, but now I have read about 20 books in the last two weeks, have cable TV and I am bored out of my mind.
Don't get me wrong, I love that I can hang out with everyone and anyone whenever I want, but seriously I did that when I was employed as well. Someone please give me a job, even if its only for 10 hours a week. Its really not a money issue, its an issue that I am going to loose my freaking sanity.
Today I get to call around to different Targets to see if I can get transferred to ONE of them. I really don't care which one at this point. I just need to WORK!!!!!!
I think that is all. I am going to go back to the mundanes of doing my homework now.

Getting scurred

Ok so hopefully you can tell what the second word in my title is. I have been sitting on this blog post for about 5 days now so I am really hoping to write it out really well.
On Saturday I went to Knotts Scary Farm with a couple of my girlfriends. I will say it had 13 mazes. It also had all of the normal rides open, with the exception of Snoopy Land, I think that is what the little kid section of Knotts is called.
Now I haven't been to this park, not really, since I was 8. So it has been 18 years since I have visited. Let me tell you, I am really ok with going another 18 years without ever going.
The only two rides I went on were Supreme Scream and Montezuma's Revenge. I HATE heights, with a very strong passion. However because I love my friend, we went on Supreme Scream. This is a ride where you are strapped into a seat, that reminded me very strongly of my 2 year old nephew's car seat and are shot up 6, yes SIX(!), stories, dangled there for a second and then shot down about 4, then go up and down for a little bit.
Holy crap, I really had my eyes closed for a majority of it. We got all the way to the top, and thank god my friend let me hold her hand, I opened my eyes for a second saw how far off the ground we were, let out a huge scream, and squeezed really hard on her hand and re-closed my eyes. Yeah I will never do that again.

However, there were still all the mazes to go thru. Now we did go through all of them. The only ones that REALLY scared the crap out of me were the Slaughterhouse and The Corn Huskers. Man I don't know what it is about corn but it is not cool!!!!! Slaughterhouse is exactly like what you would think it is. Lots of entrails and blood and people trying to kill you. It was completely nasty.

I also really think that at the beginning of the night you are more likely to be scared, especially if you have never been there before. You are more liekly to jump when people pop out from behind corners and the like. However by the end of the night I was so tired and ready to leave that I could see people and was pointing them out for the others. I'm also pretty sure the actors were pretty tired by 1am as well.
So I guess moral of the story is, get drunk before you go, it will really scare you. But also it is good to go at least once in your life.
