I'm half a mess

I am finally cleaning and organizing everything in my room. And I had to pull out stuff from the garage. A lot of stuff is going to GoodWill - so that's good. It's always nice to uncluter. So, i thought i needed a lot more clothes for student teaching but i was TOTALLY wrong. Apparently I have a massive amount of clothes. I already gave over two black garbage bag full of clothes, purses, and shoes. And it still looks like I went on a massive shopping spree. It's a good thing though because i am so poor right now any how to buy more stuff for student teaching.

So there are lots of forgotten memories that I found in my paper boxes. I found a lot of stuff from Enoch (we broke up after i moved) so that's been kind of hard. Everything i find has been making me sad. Even birthday cards from my wonderful friends and I don't know why? It's strange. So, I've been so productive but it's making me so emotional. Do you hold on to the memories...i can't seem to throw them out. I went from three storage boxes and can now fit it all into a shoe box now that i took all the bills, receipts, etc. out and shredded those.

I've been really bad the past year and half with hording stuff, being a pack rat, and a totally slob. I see shows like this on Oprah. I'm forcing myself to do it all before student teaching: room, bathroom (did last week), office, and clean the car. I think there were certain things I wasn't ready to deal with (Room/Storage stuff) and thought 'ignorance is bliss' approach was the best method. So, it's a relief to finally be dealing with everything. It's just hard. But, in order to move to the next phase in my life it's vital.

Okay, back to my clutter I go. I'll post pictures (probably next weekend) when I am completely done with everything.

We are being overtaken

I decided to come back out to the office to blog about our infestation. I open the door and what do i see on the carpet another one. OMG!

Bugs and spiders and that sort of thing do not bother me. Unless they are touching me. Scorpions on the other hand I do not want to even see! Ever since i got stung in my early 20's they just creep me out. The last few weeks we have found a scorpion every few days or so. I have been trying not to think about them. If this is my parents way of trying to get me to start thinking about moving out - they are sure doing a good job.

Mom: Angela doesn't seem to want to move out?
Dad: Well, she hates scorpions lets move a large family of them in.
Mom: Oh honey, you're so smart. That is such a wonderful idea.
Dad: I know, why didn't we think of this years ago.

Okay that probably didn't happen.

THIS IS SOOO F'ing gross! How is a girl spose to get her much needed beauty sleep?

Happy Birthday Stella!

Today is my gorgeous friend Stellas birthday. A lot has changed over the past 15+ years but I still consider her an amazing friend. She made Jr. High so much fun. We use to do the most crazy things: hand stands in elevators, the movie laugh, roller blading on one foot (she would share one with me so we each had one, since i didn't have roller blades),...etc

1998 (dec.) - we decided to get an apartment together. I remember how fun it was looking at all the apartments and the ladies would point out the kitchens and they would be hideous and it would be hard not to bust up laughing.

2001 - we went to Rocky Point. It was a tight squeeze driving down in a Chevy calvier coupe with about 6 people - but a great spring break I am glad that she invited me - even though i came back with tonsillitis.

2003 - she moved away from. While I don't get to hang out with her. It still feels like nothings changed.

My life would be totally different if we hadn't became friends. I am such a better person and learned a lot of important qualities in my much needed younger years - Thank you! HAPPY BIRTHDAY STELLA. HAVE AN AMAZING TIME IN DISNEYWORLD (what a great week go)!

Happy Birthday Angie!

I found an adorable picture of two of my favorite girls, Angie and Shaunna. Not only are they beautiful and sweet they are both great friends. I love them to pieces.

Tomorrow is Angie's Birthday party. It is going to be hours of fun. I can hardly wait. I went and picked up the gift i ordered, tonight and I cannot wait to give it to her. Shhh don't tell her -but i got her this keychain. Happy Birthday Angie!

The Host

I love the Twilight series and cannot wait for the forth book to come out in August and the movie to come out around my Birthday (I think they planned it to be a 30th Birthday present for moi). I actually wasn't sure if i would buy her new book The Host but when i saw the book for $14 at Costco, i figured how could I NOT buy it.

I found a scorpion walking on a paper bag (they were almost the same color) right near my bed (my bed is pretty low to the ground). So needless to say i've been a little spooked. So, I'm not going to read it until i clean my room. I got a bunch of storage containers at Costco yesterday. Most of the stuff in my room needs to come out because it really shouldn't be. Please let there be no more scorpions in my room. I got stung once when i was asleep about 7-years ago and since then they creap me out! I've been taking a black light to my room every night - but there are just so many places it could be.

I don't think he has enough room

I found this photo today and thought I should post it. I think it's cute.

Heather found him sleeping like this a few months ago and texted me this picture.

I know, I really shouldn't let him on my couch, he's making it all dirty. I use to not let him on. I don't seem to care anymore. He has now taken over the couch.

Kim & I

There are some things in life that just don't seem like they will happen. I never went to the same school as my sisters (due to our age differences).

I never thought that my sister Kim and I would ever go to the same school. Guess I was wrong, we are now working on our bachelors degrees @ ASU (she is 18 and I'm 29).

I got an e-mail from her from the ASU account and she asked me if it made me feel old? It doesn't make me feel old at all. Especially since i still think of myself being in my early 20's. Yes, i am majorly in denial. Although i have a feeling I will be "growing up" very soon.

I'm stifling

Wow! I am melting. It is getting incredibly hot outside. I hate being hot and coming inside and still being hot. It is depressing to think that I will not be cold until Halloween. Every summer the same routine happens. Limit my time outside. If it doesn't involve shade, water, or A.C. I probably won't be involved. At least I have powerful AC in my car. ::fingers crossed::

Last summer when my ac broke in the car, that day and half, it sucked big time before i was able to get it to the dealership. I can be bit dramatic. I am sure the guys at the dealership thought it was funny when i showed up and got out with all these freezer packs that i had put on my back, legs, and forhead - i was desperate and it did help for the 30 minute drive. I was very nervous about the bill. It actaully was super cheap about $75 for Honda to replace some switch. I had no idea that the dealership could invoice any part for under $300. ;-)
Every summer I also start getting on my moving kick. Michelle, i heard on the news that the snow on your Mount Hood will be bringing me a litle cooler weather. Please send it ASAP!!!!

I am bored out of my mind. I am so unproductive and unmotivated to do anything.

I wanted to take this summer course that is online (Heath and Safety for little kids). Dad didn't want to pay for it since it's "not part of the program" so i begged to take it. Well, now i want to drop the class because it requires me to go to a day care or child care facility for 5 hours (which is an assignment for the instructor has not a requirement of the course - but if i want a good grade i have to do it). I have interned a 180-hours the last 3 semesters. Isn't that enough? Okay maybe i'm just feeling unmotivated...but i'm really tempted to drop the class. Only i probably won't because i would feel guilty for wasting their money.

Happy Girl

In a month I am going to go meet a guy that lives in Austin, Texas, from eharm. I am soo excited. He is older and that doesn't bother me one bit. There are lots of people that have many years between them. He is so much fun to talk to. We have been talking on the phone for 2-4 hours, per day. I don't think I have talked that much on the phone since i was in Jr. High. I think he is fascinating to talk to and love listening to what he has to say. I am not much of a phone person, I would rather text. This is fun and it makes me happy.

I'm back

I spent the weekend in San Francisco with Michelle. It was my first time there and lots of fun. Thank you Michelle for everything!!! Your such a great friend. I am glad that we have been friends for so long, i always have a blast when ever we hang out.

View from the hotel. There was overcast the entire day.

Michelle in Shakespeares garden. It was very peaceful and pretty there.

Me in Shakespeares Garden

Michelle posing

We went on a hiking trail at Golden Gate Park. It was very pretty lots of green and some pretty flowers.

The mighty Golden Gate Bridge

Driving up Lombard Street (luckily Michelle is driving. I don't know if it was growing up on the flat streets in Arizona. But, driving on steep roads freaks me out).

At the top of Lombard Street

Lombard Street - looking up. What a cute neighborhood. Can you imagine living here? And people thinking your street/drive-way is an amusement park. ;-)

The "7-ladies" you know from um "full house". I googled it and found where it was at (i probably shouldn't admit that, huh?)

We drove up to San Jose and went to the Winchester Mystery Mansion. If you have not been, this place is wacky. Here is the one picture I took (didn't think to take pictures inside). The lady back in the 1900's did normal things to her house- - you know like putting a door on the 2nd floor that just drops off (white door in picture "door to know where").
