today has been a coffee kind of day.
so i haven't posted on this in over a year.

really. i have no idea why. but i just can't seem to enjoy blogger as much as i thought i would.

here's another attempt i suppose.

i've been working like mad to get to where i am, and it's paid off. i love my job and i get the proper recognition for it that i deserve.

to treat myself, i have two trips planned. one to tennessee for christmas, and then 10 days in hawaii in january. i'm looking forward to some sun and sand. island hopping with jakee will be fun. i haven't seen her since september.

what else is worthy of mentioning? there has been many changes - but i can't be bothered to list them all.

mission brunette to blonde is heavily under way and almost at completion.

brother is engaged and that's a whole OTHER story.

i guess overall, life is good. i'm on the path to where i want to be.

that's my life.

re-connect with some people from the past. and current friends i haven't seen nearly enough of.

heading to the uk on thursday/friday. can't wait. this vacation is a long time coming. i can't really afford it. but it's happening.

coop is done. school is done. job hunting has begun. slowly but surely. stressful, definitely.

i sliced my hand on a can. that was unpleasant. but my really cute bandaids made it sorta ok.

i can't help it. i listen to the new weezer song on my ipod really loudly.

ok. time to get laundry ready for tomorrow.

today i had lunch with a friend from the past, i've known her since kindergarten. of my highschool group of friends, there were only three of us that moved away, and we were two of them. she's like a sister/cousin kind of person. her family is like mine and mine likewise.

as time goes by. i feel like life is just a revolving door. things and people coming and going, going and coming.

i do find it refreshing when i can find a piece of home in a person, as opposed to the traditional idea of a home. god knows how long i've had that even. it was funny, she's one of the few that has known me since forever, before my parents split, etc. and as we were talking, i knew that i could say anything, she was there for so much. it's nice to not have to make small chat. just be.

the past is a strange thing, the future is too, but i wonder if it's always a cycle of this?

an ex's mom had a heart attack, i was called. it was shocking, i was concerned. and scared. it's funny how one sentence can change so much. we've talked since. said we'd stay in contact. but it's weird. that's not my life anymore.

i think i'm getting nostalgic for memories of the past. lives i've had.


complete sidenote:
i want to join team bill.
i've started to jump on the true blood bandwagon. i love the theme song. i love bill. i'm absurd i know. but i just had to announce that.

i just want to freeze time.

what a whirlwind life can be.

so much going on, and not enough time to process it all.

my trip across the pond has officially been postponed. i'm not happy about it.

in exchange for that, i did get my top choice of co-op with and i'm excited for that.

other than that, i'm completely unmotivated by life, single again, working/eating/sleeping, a drone in the game of life.

things aren't completely horrible....but never as planned. i have a lot of good things happening...but they aren't making me happy.

so tomorrow eric is going on a mini tour w/ his band. i decided to bake some cookies for them for the trip.

since most of the band is either veggie or vegan, i made vegan chocolate chip cookies!

so tasty!!!

here's the recipe:

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp cinnamon (optional)
1/2 cup oil (canola or sunflower)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup cold water or soy milk

chocolate chips (just eyeball the amount, add more if it seems there aren't enough per cookie, if you have too many you'll just have extras in the bowl later)

preheat oven to 350 degrees
mix all ingredients together in the order specified (add the chocolate chips after the other ingredients are mixed) and then roll balls of cookies and flatten them onto a pan.

i cooked them for about 8 minutes, but my oven is hotter than i'd keep a keen eye on the first batch until you are sure about your oven.

*i used soy milk and the cinnamon= SOOO GOOOOD!!!!

it's staring....

all i have to say out!!

"Similar to a scare originally found in Cambodia back in 2005, victims of a new strain of the swine flu virus H1N1 have been reported in London.

After death, this virus is able to restart the heart of it’s victim for up to two hours after the initial demise of the person where the individual behaves in extremely violent ways from what is believe to be a combination of brain damage and a chemical released into blood during “resurrection.” "

"The Netherlands confirms its first case of zombie swine flu, in a three-year-old boy recently returned from Mexico. After passing away early this morning, he rose from the dead and lunged at his mother."

check out the whole article here. i'm not making this stuff up.
