Don't you ever give up????

A couple weeks ago I was down at the Citadel doing a tobacco cessation project for school. This one cadet, The Baby Cadet (TBC), came back twice...not because he smoked that much but because he came once and then brought a friend back the next time.
I got home for my break and logged onto facebook....and TBC had found me on facebook. Now it's not that hard of a feat, my name tag for school has my first initial and last name (makes it easier to be stalked). I accepted his friend request because a)I feel bad being mean and denying him and b)we had to send out a survey a week later and I needed to be sure he filled it out. I expected never to actually speak to him....until I get home later that night and find an email from him. Would I care to hang out sometime? Oh.....gosh...what do you know, I'm busy for, say, the next 5 years! I wish I had said that...I'm too nice to say that.
I told him I was busy that night. So he writes back and says, how about Thursday night? Busy then too. Friday night? Got plans. Luckily spring break came up (which was like a "year in hot-girl time") and he disappeared for a week...now he's back. How about Friday again? Have a friend in town. Well one day this week then? He's in trouble and not even allowed to leave campus! Why is this boy (and he is a boy at the young age of 20) willing to leave campus and get in trouble just to hang out with me, despite my blowing him off 7 times?!?!?!
He's not a bad looking guy but he's so young. I try not to discriminate against age (see Nicole's blog). I generally date guys that are older than me but I won't knock someone out just because they are younger. But he can't even get into a bar! Unless he has a fake ID...in which case I don't want to go out with someone who needs/uses a fake ID. I'd be ok with just being friends with him, but since he referred to me in the same sentence as "hot-girl time" I'm thinking friends is not what he wants to be.


One Please!

Where can I find one former male cheerleader with really big muscles who can intimidate people into doing what they should do? Hmmmm....M and I pretty much decided that the cheerleaders aren't going to listen to us. We just aren't that scary. M is especially not scary. I don't think she's capable of being mean. Me, on the other hand, can be mean...but I don't like to do it too often because I don't want to be known as the "mean coach" plus I don't want to totally tear these girls down and lower their self-esteem. I'll depend on someone else to do that
We've always wondered how the other teams were SO disciplined. The mini's (ages 4-6ish) are better behaved and listen better than our juniors (age 11-14). They are sharper, cleaner, and have better facials....turns out it is fear that has them disciplined. I was a little shocked as a coach yelled at a 4 year old "Blah-blah! Think about where you are going, what are you thinking?" "Blah-blah, hurry up! You are so behind! You aren't thinking at all!" I felt a little bad for the little girls, but they were listening and looked a whole lot better than our team.
Oh and the other thing....it is SO not appropriate for an 8 year old to be popping things more than I would if I were out at a club. And trust me, had I gone with the original Britney-inspired-dance that I came up with at first....it still would have been tamer than what these chick-a-dees were doing! Just wait for next year's dance!!



I passed! I passed, I passed, I passed! I cannot say it enough! I passed my national boards! Whew...and here I was, just a little bit nervous...
The envelope came...and I couldn't open it! I was freaking out. I tore one little corner and couldn't go any further! So I met R for some delicious fatty food and he opened it...and I passed! Not just by a few points either....wooooo!


What Dreams Are Made Of....

I cannot WAIT until I'm in Fayetteville and can have a cheat meal. Here's my plan: swing by Wiener Works and pick up a foot long with chili, cheese, slaw, mustard and onions. Head over to BBQ Hut and pick up a BBQ sandwich w/slaw and fries. Go to Micasita and sit down with some chips, salsa and queso. Oh and don't forget the rice and beans, taco and quesadilla. Once sitting, I'll shovel all the food in and wash it down with a coke.
But...since I don't know the next time I'll be up in the ville, I'll just have some delicious, nutritious cheese fries dipped in ranch with root beer down here.

Wii Fit

I've been trying to stay fairly busy the past couple days so I can forget about boards...it's been halfway working. I went over to B's today to play Wii Fit....I started out at 34 years old. Yes, that's right 34! Which is much better than what I started at with regular Wii...that thought I was 78. However, within a half hour's workout I dropped down to the age of 20 and lost a half pound. I wonder how young I can make my age...
The good news is that I did a short run on the Wii, played hula hoops and soccer...so I see absolutely no need for me to go to the gym today!

Oh and supposed to watch Twilight tonight(I think)...sure wish I had thought to read the books beforehand. If only someone let me borrow them and mail them to me....


just maybe...

I might be a little on the stressed out side. I should get national board results either this week or next. I am trying to think positive thoughts and I know the odds are in my favor but it's been a long wait and I just want to know how I did. Regional boards are this Friday. I know how to clean teeth, it's not that part I'm worried about. What if they reject my patient? I don't have a backup. No one else in the class has a backup. Heck, 2 girls don't even have patients! What if my paperwork is not done correctly? I need time at school to complete some of the papers because I need access to the chart. I have all the papers completed that I can do at home but N wrote in blue ink. What if blue ink is not acceptable? I write everything in black ink. That's what we were taught...black ink only. If my paperwork is incorrect, they can reject my patient! If N touches the light, they can reject my patient. If he doesn't brush his teeth in the morning, they can reject him! So many reasons why they can reject the patient...what if????
I need it to be Friday at about 8:45 am and I need my patient to be approved and I need to be sitting down to start the cleaning. If I can make it to that point, I will be ok....but it's going to be a long week! I just need to make it until Friday morning...
I am going to wear my UNC scrubs though because a)they are my lucky scrubs and b)they are playing later that day so I want to support them.


Really...3 hours of sitting here doing nothing is not punishment enough? Instead you want me to stay here for another 30 minutes. It's not my fault that my patient did not show up. I have nothing to do with it....I do not feel well and I would just like to go home! Let me go home!

Another week begins

I'm supposed to be exercising now. And then eating next...I am not doing either. I may eat in a few but I am def not exercising anytime soon. (I know, I know I will get fussed at for this, but suck it up! I'll get around to it...) I am not good at sticking to a schedule. I get so distracted by things like, well, the internet. I got up this morning and said to myself "Well, I could exercise, eat, then do things I actually need to do....or I could facebook/myspace stalk people and blog." We all can see what won out.
So anyways, here is my latest dilemma: I got invited to a wedding. I'm torn on weddings. They are fun, they celebrate a new beginning to 2 people's lives, blah blah, all that crap...plus there is usually an open bar. They are also just slightly depressing in that: it's not mine, I don't have one in sight, nor do I even have a boyfriend...or any prospects for a boyfriend. But such is life and the fun part of the wedding usually wins out.
So back to the invite: I like this girl and her guy...they are fun people and I'm sure the wedding will be a blast but I absolutely HATE going to weddings by myself. Even if I have a friend go with me, it still means I don't have to go alone...with a bunch of other couples...and I'm by myself. Did I mention I don't like to be there by myself? I'm sure I could sucker one of my guy friends to go with me...nothing some persistent whining/begging won't fix. I need to RSVP fairly soon but I'm just not sure who to ask to go with me. The problem is I don't know who I'll still hang out with in 2 months. I have a tendency of being moody and mean and running people off. I haven't seen BA in almost 2 months, so I don't know if he would go or not. He probably would considering his undying crush on me that only comes out when he's been drinking (not a good scenario considering the open bar)...I just don't know what to do!


worst dieter EVER!

Yup that's me...well perhaps diet isn't the right word because diet signifies temporary and this is supposed to be a permanent healthy lifestyle change. So, since we all know I suck at sticking to things long term, it's a diet. I actually haven't had a coke in 5 days, so I'm doing decent at sticking to the foods...or at least I'm trying.
The past 2 mornings I have been getting wake-up calls to make sure that I'm awake and eating breakfast. Yesterday...it took somewhere around 7 calls to get me out of bed. Today...it only took 2, I think...but I may have not been completely honest when I said I was getting out of bed. I mean, I stretched and made it sound believable and all...but I stayed my butt in bed for another 20 min or so, best 20 min of my life! (or at least it would have been if someone didn't decide to clean the oven at midnight last night and it was beeping every minute and a half)
Tonight is cheat night though and I'm going to chow down on some pizza, I just have to figure out what kind to get: Magical Mystery Tour (3 kinds of mushrooms, jalapenos and feta), BBQ chicken (without bacon of course!), or perhaps the Killer Potato Pie (loaded potato skins + pizza = heaven!)...oh and I'm going to drink like 5 cokes to make up for skipping them this week!



I just got asked the weirdest question. I get a facebook message from a guy that I was acquaintances with in high school, but certainly not close friends or anything.
R: Hey how's life treating you?
K: Pretty good, thanks, how are you.
R: Good, I just wanted to ask you one real quick question
K: ok, what's up? (getting nervous here, one real quick question from someone 8 years in your past that you never speak to is never a good thing)
R: Are you still really really skinny?
K: *busts out laughing*

Certainly not the question I was expecting! I informed him that while I may have been thin back in the day, I was never really really skinny...I'm only about 10 lbs heavier now than what I was back then. However, if I have to be remembered as really really skinny, I'll take it.



2:50...that game time does not work for me UNC. I want to cheer you on but tomorrow at 2:50 I will be cleaning teeth. Without a TV in front of me. I think my teachers would frown upon a portable radio too....although it might be a good thing to check. How am I supposed to cheer you on without: a)seeing you b)wearing my UNC scrubs or c)getting updates on the game.
So I guess I'll just have to say Go Tarheels! But I know you guys can do it...it's Radford, I mean...I've barely heard of them. You can do it. I just hope Ty is back because you guys were kinda sucking without him...so fix your toe Ty and get back on the court!


I am not a good person...

I feel horrible! I shouldn't feel horrible. I'm not doing anything wrong. At least I don't think so, because I can't be doing anything wrong if what I think I'm doing has never been established. Right? But what if what I think I'm doing is being assumed and I really am doing something wrong without meaning to because I don't know that that thing has been assumed. I don't want to do anything wrong....either way...

I don't even know if I would even want that thing, so shouldn't I have been consulted if it is being assumed? And then what if it's being doubly assumed by more than one person? Sheesh....
And what if I'm assuming too much and that thing never even entered the picture? I just want to run away....and start an anonymous blog! One day I will learn not to give that address out...

Washing dishes

What is so hard about NOT putting pots and pans in the dishwasher? I just don't really get why it is difficult to wash them (and actually make sure they are clean and don't have chunks of food left on them) by hand.
And really, using 5 glasses within an 8 hour period? Why is the sink empty when I go to bed but when I wake up it is FULL of dishes? It is night....why are you eating full meals that require 2 plates and 5 glasses? ARRRGH!


What did I do????

uh-oh. I am an idiot....pretty sure I am, yup.

In other news, say I have this friend...who....likes burgers. But her and burgers have a bad history in that she really likes burgers but she gets sick every time she eats these burgers. And while she really wants things to work out with burgers, it's always the same unhappy ending. Should she give up on burgers and try something new, like...say...buffalo? Or should she keep on trying the burger and hope for different results? Hmmm...dilemmas, dilemmas!
And yes I know the definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over, expecting different results. Er....at least I told this friend :)


worst pick up lines ever:

- I really like your forehead. I've been admiring it all night.

- You seem like a granny panty kind of girl.



So I went out last night with 2 guys from the gym to grab some sushi. I totally heart them both. C and R/D (whose real name is J, but I like to call him D)....so much fun. They used to be bouncers at a dirty sketchy club down here that closed down, so I'm sure you can get a really good mental picture of what they look like.
Oh and the best part of it all? R/D/J snorted wasabi. I wish I could convey how hilarious that was....and he did it on a dare! Hilarious.
Oh yeah, and their favorite show? HIMYM!



I only wish it were May 8th! Actually April 26th would work too. Any time but today.....uuuuuuggggghhhh!
In other news my butt is getting firmer :)


McDonald's is NOT an emergency,

Even in my books, McDonald's does not count as an emergency. I mean, I like it and all...mmmm, fries and a milkshake and chicken nuggets....mmmmm. Oh sorry, I had to wipe the drool from the keyboard.

Woman Calls 911 3 Times Over McNuggets

FORT PIERCE, Fla. (March 3) - Authorities say a Florida woman called 911 three times after McDonald's employees told her they were out of McNuggets.
A police report said 27-year-old Fort Pierce resident Latreasa L. Goodman told authorities she paid for a 10-piece last week but was later informed the restaurant had run out.
She says she was refused a refund and told all sales were final. A cashier told police she offered Goodman a larger portion of different food for the same price, but Goodman became irate.
Police say Goodman was cited on a misuse of 911 charge. A current phone listing for Goodman couldn't be found.
A McDonald's spokesman says Goodman should have been given a refund, and she's being sent a gift card for a free meal.



I am done with my boards. I do not feel good about them at all. I thought I was very well prepared...I knew all the nerves. I don't think there was a SINGLE nerve question on there. I knew all the vitamin deficiencies. I think there were 2 out of 200 questions on those. I went through and counted the ones I hands down knew without a doubt...and it was less than half. Eek! That is not a good number. But as far as ones I just completely guessed on, I would say there were only about 20 out of the first 200. So....in about a month I'll know how good of a guesser I was.
The afternoon session seemed to go a LITTLE better. Maybe it's because there were only 150 questions for me to not know...arrrrghhhh....


Tomorrow, Tomorrow....

In less than 12 hours I will have started "THE TEST"
Today, on the other hand, was fantastic. I had my wonderful massage full of delicious smells and feels and I"m not sure what feels better: my feet or my head. Those were definitely my 2 favorite areas! After that I went to a little artisan bakery and had a sandwich on freshly made bread. Then it was home for a 3 hour nap...all that rubbing really wore me out!
M. came over and we went to the shag lessons. It was not as awkward as I was thinking it would be and the lessons really were a lot of fun. I am hoping either he or K. will come out tomorrow night so I can show off my newly acquired moves. I think M and I are going to try to make it to a lesson next week as well to expand our shag dance moves. If he wont' go, I'll have to sucker some other guy into it.
Now it's off to bed!


2 more days

Well it's almost that time. In about 32 hours I will be about to sit down to take a portion of the biggest test of my professional life. There is national and regional boards so this is only a part of it but it's the harder part. I can clean someone's teeth (or at least I think I can) and I can't study for it...it's either a skill I possess or I don't.
The knowledge for this test is something I hope I possess. I have been going over a couple mock boards and studying the review book. I feel fairly confident about most of the material...I'm a little iffy on Pharmacology but I feel like if I try to cram any more info in my brain it will burst and I will lose it all. Hopefully any pharm stuff will be common knowledge!
Starting to get nervous so trying to focus on tomorrow. That will be a fun day! I will start with a Wild Lime Blossom scalp and full body massage. I will leave there greasy but relaxed, or at least that's the goal. Next I will clean up my house some, do some laundry, take a nap, and make some stromboli. (If you could email the recipe M., that'd be just great.) Finally I will take shag lessons with Dr. Joe...I know, weird that we broke up and now are taking shag lessons but he wanted to remain friends and he is my only male friend willing to take these lessons. So we shall learn to shag. I'm hoping it is fun and destressifying!


We're coming for you kittens...

and we're bringing the A1 sauce.
