what I've learned over break

1. my grandma is afraid of cows.  When she was forced to work on a farm during World War II the Nazi's used to make her heard cows and they attacked her.
2. The Deskiewicz Family Curse: every female has become pregnant before being married.
3.  My mom had a miscarriage before my brother and I and I were born.  The baby died at four months.

It's weird to think my family had a past before I was born. I wonder how life would have been if I had two siblings, or would I have ever been born? and will I be part of the curse? oh God I hope not.  

This vacation has been busy, working at Borders.  I usually don't work during break so its a change, but I like it so much better than sitting around. I have perfected the drinks, and I have learned to ask each customer about their "border's rewards card."   I like it there alot and hope to maybe work their again next holiday.  At the end of the day I am tired and my feet are sore, but I just keep reminding myself that there is only six dollars on my debit card, and the job could be a lot worse.

Andy bought me a bracelet for Christmas.  I got him nothing, but we said no gifts for Christmas.  His mom made him buy it so I don't feel bad I guess.  His birthday is coming up and I have no idea what to get him...any ideas? Yesterday I ate dinner with his family at his grandparents house.  It was really nice, they just installed a new toilet so his grandma made me sit on it, and "see how tall it is." 

Keep the Customer Satisfied
Simon and Garfunkel

Gee but it's great to be back home
Home is where I want to be
I've been on the road so long my friend
And if you came along
I know you couldn't disagree

It's the same old story, yeah
Everywhere I go
I get slandered, libeled
I hear words I never heard in the Bible
And I'm one step ahead of the shoe shine
Two steps away from the county line
Just trying to keep my customers satisfied

Deputy Sheriff said to me
"Tell me what you come here for, boy
You better get your bags and flee
You're in trouble, boy
And now you're heading into more"

It's the same old story
Everywhere I go
I get slandered, libeled
I hear words I never heard in the Bible
And I'm one step ahead of the shoe shine
Two steps away from the county line
Just trying to keep my customers satisfied


And it's the same old story
Everywhere I go
I get slandered, libeled
I hear words I never heard in the Bible
And I'm so tired
I'm oh so tired
But I'm trying to keep my customers satisfied

Obama is inheriting a United States that is weaker in the world than at any time since 1980.

Obama is inheriting an economy that is weaker than any time since the Great Depression.

Obama is inheriting a U.S. government that is in bailout mode for financial institutions, homeowners, and the once great car manufacturing sector left in the U.S.

Obama is inheriting a U.S. that still does not have an energy policy.

Obama is inheriting Bush's national security nightmare, with his team taking over an almost impossible task. Clinton having to reinvigorate diplomatic efforts from rock bottom, while Jones and Gates try to once again make sense of NATO's role in Afghanistan, but also its core mission in a world where borders aren't boundaries.

Obama is inheriting a Middle East situation that was left untended for two terms.

Obama is inheriting an increasingly unraveling situation in Afghanistan, which Bush allowed to happen.

Obama is inheriting a revived Russia, who had Bush nailed from the moment he saw into Putin's soulless eyes.

Obama is inheriting Bush's Musharaff policy in Pakistan, which sees that country on the precipice of becoming a failed state.

Obama is inheriting the rising militancy of Uzbekistan, which could cause Central Asia to ignite at any moment.

Obama is inheriting a relationship with China that has its financial leader warning the U.S. in no uncertain terms: "Be Nice to the Countries That Lend You Money."

Obama is inheriting... -- insert the reality of Bush's actual legacy here -- .

Last semester I wrote a goals list for myself...Lets see how I did for this semester.
Goals for next year:
1. have a whole wall covered in sticky notes.  How long it's going to last is another ideal. Never happened but I do like how my wall looks this year
2.  Find a lovely couch.  A couch that's used and old and probaly has a life time of stories that if it could talk, would tell.No couch, but there is a food cart!
3.  Stop eating pizza.  It's not worth my money, it's not worth waking up the next morning with that horrible I'm fat feeling. Definitley decreased but not going to lie yesterday I did order pizza out of impulse.
4.  Work out everyday.  no matter my scheduale. This week I stopped working out.  It's the worst feeling in the world, I'm tired and sore and i feel as if my body is lacking the energy it had just a week ago. I started rowing on the machine again!! 5000meters
5. Get a job.  Not the 'Skellar.  Hopefully in Ellicotville or a nice resteraunt, I am also willing to babysit.  I quit the Skellar, but also I quit the YMCA so I'm not sure how I feel on the whole job situation
6. Save my money.  I want to be able to say at the end of the year, "I have x amount of dollars and I can buy this, this or a bunch of these"
6.5. stop being a complusive buyer.  Today I wasted ten bucks on items I don't need or really want for that matter.  It's upsetting As of right now I have no money to save, but hopefully over break I get the job that pays 15.75!!! hollaand cross fingers
7.  Say "no,"  I hate telling people I can't do something, but I have to face the fact that I am not a superhero, nor a hero for that matter of fact. I've been doing better but not wonderful
8.  enjoy the outside more.  these past weeks have been wonderful.  I want to make more of the outdoor weather. Needs to be warmer asap
9.  Stop drinking on weeknights. there needs no explination. I've only drank on one weeknight this year!!!!!
10.  Be smart again.  I want to have the grades I had last semester.  It felt good, for once to actually be good at school.  I know the only reason for that was because I worked my ass off. This year I slacked and procrastinated.  I need to lock myself in my room and actually get work one, and learn from my work.  This semester I took notes and never looked at them until the day before the test.  Lesson learned- not doing that again.  I want to be happy with my work again, not just do it and have no proud of it.  I want to be proud of myself again. I feel like I'm learning again, thank god.

I have a ways to go but I'm improving so A plus with that one!

walmart worker dies on Black Friday


I think the saddest part of the story is the fact that people were upset that they had to leave because of the death.
What has this world come to?
