Sunny Day!

After a somewhat crappy morning I am glad to report that my afternoon is going well. I have a tutoring gig for Thursday night (YAY!) and had a good lunch with some people from work. I am going to try and buckle down now and work on my paper that is due next week (YIKES!). I may even go to the gym tonight (WOW!). We'll see though :)

Wide Awake In Baltimore

There is yet more snow on the ground but this time it is covered in ice. YAY. I am hoping that we dont get anymore for a while, MD doesnt fair well with snow. I slept a good part of the afternoon and now I am totally wide awake. I did manage to get my butt to a aqua aerobics class at the gym this afternoon. It really made me sore. I wasnt aware how much I actaully did in the class with it being in the water and all.

That was pretty much my day. Tomorrow I am looking forward to the NY Times and my warm bed. Oh and football talk on ESPN.

Night Y'all.

This one is for you Moley!

More foamy!!!!


Had to share.

My horoscope for today.

It's time for you to admit something: Your values have changed. What used to be important no longer matters. That means it's time to make some corresponding outward changes -- some big ones. Fortunately, you're more than ready, even if it means saying good-bye to people, things or ways of life that were once primary to you. Don't worry about it. You'll get through this the same way you get through everything. Bravely.



I am sitting here booking my reservations for the AAG conference that I have to go to in April. Luckily its in Denver a city I love. I am excited to go and nervous at the same time. I am going to be presenting a paper and chairing the session that I am in. I have no idea whatsoever how I got to be chair. I wonder if the rest of the people in my session are grad students and I got it by default. Or maybe being in the Bureau has some sort of signifigance. Anyway, my boss sugegsted that I get a head start and contact the people in my session for short bios so that I can put together a little diddy at the beginning of his/her paper. Now if only I can actually get my shit together and write my OWN paper things would be ok LOL! I am going to be seeing people I havent seen since I left NYC 5 years ago. I am not looking forward seeing to my former Grad advisor. We left on bad terms. But I may have to do some ass kissing if I want to go back for my PhD. OY!

Better get back to work. Ciao!

More random things about me.

I am a member of the Society of Women Geographers.
Getting my haircut makes me happy.
I can't stand raw tomatoes.
On average I move every two years.
If I had to do it all over I would have gone into law enforcement.
People call me the Puerto Rican Martha Stewart.
I aspire to write a book.
I will be 30 in November.


Hump Day.

Its only 11 am and I am dying to go home. I cant seem to get into the groove of things. I did not go to the gym yesterday so I absolutely have to go today. Last night I was trying on some clothes and was pleased to see that I can now get into a dress that I was never ever able to get into. The dress still had the tags on it. I was able to zip it up with no problem. I still really need to work on my stomach though. I am very unhappy with that part of my body. I also have to continue to work on my arms. They look better but not as good as I hoped they would.

I think my problem right now is that I feel that I am stuck in this void. The void called Maryland. I feel alone during the week once I get home from work. I partly go to the gym just to be around people. I cant possible leave any time soon as I just renewed my lease and dont have any cash in the bank or job prospects. So I feels like I am finishing a prison sentence where I dont know what my release date is. I just try to take things day by day and keep myself going.

What I do all day (when I am not blogging)

Here is a picture of my desk. Guess what I do for a living :)


Wanna be Physicist.

I am sitting here comtemplating whether or not to purchase tickets to see the Physicist Brian Green speak at the Smithsonian in March. Money is tight now but I know that if I wait to long it will be sold out. I consider myself a junior physicist in the sense that I love reading about physics, string theory in particular. I didn't always enjoy the subject. My senior year in HS I found out that I had to take another year or Honors science to get my Regents Diploma (those of you who live in NY know what I am talking about). I got screwed my sophomore year when I took Honors Chemistry. I had a jerk for a teacher who failed me in the honors section with a 55 but passed me in the non-honors section with an 90. I did the same amount of work in both. I didnt take a science my junior year so I had the choice between Earth Science and Physics. I have no idea why I didnt take the Earth Science class considering what I do for a living. So I had Physics bright an early my senior year. What a pain in the ass that was. I had a great teacher named Mr. Lipmann. He made physics fun and I really enjoyed myself. He had this cool lab on the 2nd floor that was hidden away and full of the coolest stuff you have ever seen. That year when my class took the Regents we came in 2nd in the borough of Manhattan right behind STUYVESANT one of the toughest schools to get into. Who would have thought that Fashion Industries, a technical school, would have come in 2nd? During my graduation I was awarded the Physics award. I was so proud of that tiny pin. Anyway, I think I will buy the ticket, it will appease the string theory nerd in me.

PS Doesnt Dr. Greene look a little like Agent Mulder from the X-Files?

Therapy Issues

At my last session with Dr. Jane I brought up an issue that has been on my mind for a while now. Her answer was "You'll be fine." And she brushed the issue aside. This has really been bothering me. If a patient brought an issue to a session that she has a concern about would you, as a therapist, address the issue? Or sweep it aside? Especially when the issue is something that may lay in the patient's future? At this stage I dont want to look for another therapist. She's convenient and knows my past history. That is part of the reason why I cant sleep tonight. I took some sleeping pills earlier this evening as I was on the verge of another anxiety attack. I slept for 2 hours and now I am wide awake. This issue amongst others plays over and over in my mind and then I get all wired up and cant sleep. Crap. At least the Eagles won tonight.

PS: Screw you Pittsburgh :)

Here's to hoping I can fall back asleep in the next hour or so or I will be really fucked up in the morning.


Horoscope for today.

Anyone who messes with you obviously doesn't know you well, because if they did, they'd have some respect for your ability to hold onto a grudge, get even and at the very least, intimidate someone to the point where they're looking over their shoulder for months. So if someone refuses to back off even after you've sent out some extremely obvious warning signs -- well, let's just say that they can't be the sharpest crayon in the box, and they deserve what they get. Still, consider the source before you go full out.

Yes I am a Scorpio. :)

Snowing this weekend.

Boy it has finally stopped snowing today. It started early this morning even though I thought that MD wouldn't get hit till early in the afternoon. I was driving down 95 and almost as soon as I hit DE there it was, snow. There were some parts of 95 that were mess. Luckily by the time I got into Baltimore County the road was fine. I have never really driven in snow before. Heck I have only been driving for about 4 years now. So I took my time and made it home. Stopped by the grocery store to get a few more essentials and went straight to bed. I'll make an update later. Right now I am going back to bed to snuggle under the covers :)

Snow vs MD

Looks like good old MD is in store for quite a whopping this weekend. We had minor snow fall Wed and once again MD proved how it can't handle the lightest of precip. I was attending a meeting near my home and as I was driving home I heard callers on the radio describing the accidents on the road. LISTEN UP MD DRIVERS!!!!! SLOW THE FUCK DOWN!!! Just cause you drive an SUV or other 4 wheel drive vehicle don't mean shit. MD drivers are asses to begin with but throw some snow on the ground and as they say in NY "fugetaboutit". Oh and I think there are exactly three snow plows for the entire state. And they never seem to make it to Baltimore. I know that MD is considered to be the south but come on! Its not like we are in the deep south!!! Get some more goddamed snow plows!! Where are my taxes going??? And get some more salt too while you are at it!!!

That is all.

Back to bed.

Snow 1 MD 0

Thanks Bushie!

Tomorrow I have the day off from work because of the inauguration. That makes my life a whole lot easier. It also snowed today so the roads were an absolute mess and I am glad I dont have to deal with that. But more on that later. I'll be in my pjs catching up on some much needed sleep :)

Too bad I cant sleep for four years until this administration in over :(

Sushi, Pedro and NYC.

I finally got some time alone today. It is funny how I forgot how loud and hectic my family can be. I hug out with my cousin last night, we went into the city and she had her very first sushi meal. We were originally going to go to UNO's last night (it's her fave place) as a treat for her bday. But somehow we got to talking about sushi and Jenny mentioned that she had wanted to try it. Luckily we found a place right around the corner that was a very reasonsibly priced sushi restaurant. We both ate like pigs for $25. She loved it. Glad I was there to show her something new. We were planning on hooking up with Mr K's brother, Captain Roger, who was in the city but alas there was some miscommunication and we never did. Maybe sometime soon Captain!

Today I went to the Angelika Theater on W. Houston St to go see the Pedro Almodovar movie "Bad Education". The Daily News said that the movie was at 12:50. Turns out it was at 12 at another theather 6 blocks away. Luckily I found the place and made the movie. Glad I did cause it was really good. I went back to the sushi place for lunch and did some more walking around the city. God home a few hours ago.

Tomorrow I plan on seeing Mr. K. He may make the trek up to the city (and maybe get to see his bro) or I may see him on the way back home. Overall I had a pretty good weekend :)

Wake up Baltimore/KEXP

Lately I have been listening to KEXP a station out of Seattle that is online. I got this link from a craigslist Baltimore. There has been some great sadness by some regarding the changing of the format of a local DC rock station. 99.1 WHFS used to be a pretty good rock station but recently was changed to a Spanish station. Well all the rubes in the greater DC/Baltimore area are up in arms over this. There is a pretty heated discussion about the numbers of Latinos in the area and how they are fucking up the area/country. I for one am glad that there is a mainstream Spanish station in the area. Back in the city there are 2-3 stations on the dial. Wake up Baltimore! The days of your vanilla existence are over!

My favorite song on KEXP

Rory Rides Me Raw- By The Vaselines

Galloping through the morning dew,
There is only one thing that I want to do to you,
And its true that I'm going to do it soon.

Rory rory ride rory
Rory rory ride rory
Rory ride me slowly,
Ride me raw raw raw.

Stride on your back rocking to ride,
I got the feeling we're gonna gallop alright,
And It's true that I'm gonna do it soon.

Galloping through the morning dew,
There's only one thing I that I want to do to you,
And it's true, that I'm gonna to do it soon.
It'll take three to satisfy me,
'Cause I'm more of a man than you'll ever be.

Rory, ride me slowly, ride me true, ride me true.

Its about the singer's old bicycle, you perves!


Get Ready For Iron Chef America!

I was not really a fan of the original Japanese version because I thought that is was a little too wierd. I never cared for the voice-overs either. But I got hooked on the American version last year when it first came on the Food Network. I thought that it was totally cool that the MC was Alton Brown. He did a great job describing the science behind the dishes and had some great commentary. Now I have something to look forward to on Sunday nights now that football season is just about over.

Men Just Want Mommy- NY Times Article

Maureen Dowd has a piece in today's NY Times about how it seems that men only want to marry women who do not have a professional career (or at least one that doesn't overshadow theirs). This reminds me of a rant that I posted recently titled "Should I break out the lightning rod?" Dowd discusses some popular movies that have men that fall in love with or marry women who are their inferiors in the sense that the women don't have career aspirations or are in jobs that make them subservient.

Is this what men really look for? Someone that needs to be rescued and treats them like a king? I'll tell ya most of the men that I "dated" certainly did not deserve to have me at their beck and call. My last boyfriend was constantly reminded that if he wanted someone to kiss his ass that he was dating the wrong woman. I think the line that I used was "Remember honey I'm from NY, if you want a mommy go date someone from Glen Burnie". (GB also known as Glen Burnout is a suburb between Bmore and Annapolis where everyone is still stuck in the 80s and is some cases the 70s). Listen I dont mind treating a guy well as long as I am being treated well also. But I draw the line at being someone's mommy.

I grew up in an environment where I was forced to take care of and to defend myself. And yes there have been instances where there has been conflict between myself and a significant other when he has insisted that I play a role that I was not raised for. I have tried it on but the costume never did fit well. So rather than play a character not intended for me I rather give up the role to my understudy (whoever she is).

So in conclusion, men be aware of your subconscience when you want something from your partner. Do you really want her or do you want your mommy?

Screw you Dodge part deux.

So after getting tired of wedging that piece of cardboard between the door and my car frame I played around with the sensor. I noticed that there was a screw that was holding it onto the door and I went into my apt and got a Phillips head scewdriver (yes gentlemen this woman has a toolbox and isnt afraid to use it). It turned without a problem and guess what, the goddamn light turned off. YAY! So, I left it unscrewed (it is still in the frame of my car) now I know that it isnt the safest way of solving my problem but fuck it. I prob saved myself a hundred bucks by doing so. Now what do I do now if my door is really open, I have no way of knowing since I messed with the senser. Que sera, sera :)

Dodge 1 Noemi 1


Pick up on this!

My fave commercial of 2004.

Love that the brought back Salt N Peppa :)

Dont buy a Dodge car.

I went to my local bank this morning to deposit a check so that I can have some money for this weekend. I went to the branch in Suitland (aka Shootland the lovely ghetto where I work). I could not reach the ATM machine so I opened up the car door. I make my transaction and close to door to go to work. Low and behold the damn interior light will not turn off. Thinking I might have not closed the car door all the way I repeatedly open and close the door at every stop light. Nothing works. So now I am pissed, its getting hot in my car and it is mad foggy outside so it is difficult to drive. I get to the garage and I still cant get the damn light to turn off. I ran into Tonja (a coworker) who used to own a Dodge Neon and asked her if she has ever had this problem before. She says no. We investigate every reason why my light wont turn off. She notices that the door has this pop-up sensor that when it touches the car door the light turns off. So I am playing with the switch and she says that the popup part of the sensor is stuck and that is why the light isnt turning off. So I decide that I had enough of this shit and I rip off the cover of an atlas (RIP Atlas) sitting in my backseat and wedge it ever so carefully between the door and where the sensor is trying not to slam my finger in the car door. The goddamn light turns off and my alarm comes on. I call my garage and I cant get in until Friday. So now I have to close the door this way which is a total pain in the ass. Well at least I can get the car to not drain my battery. And the best part is the freaking car isnt going to be paid off till June 2006. Yay, me :(

My fave song this week.

I rediscovered BNL's Rock Spectacle at work today(borrowed it from Noelle). Been listening to it all afternoon and on teh way home.

"Life In A Nutshell"

When she was three
Her Barbies always did it on the first date
Now she's with me,
There's never any need for them to demonstrate

She's like a baby, I'm like a cat
When we are happy
we both get fat and still
It's never enough
It's never enough
It's never enough

But I don't tend to worry 'bout the things that other people say
And I'm learning that I wouldn't want it any other way
Call me crazy but it really doesn't matter
All that matters to me is she

Her life in a nutshell
No way would she want it to change me
It's not that easy 'cause
My time is often decided for me
For me

She memorized every pencil crayon color in the box
Her blue-green eyes complement the burnt sienna in her locks
She's at the movies
I'm on the phone
When we're separated
we're never alone,
but still
It's never enough
It's never enoug
No it's never enough

But I don't tend to worry 'bout the things that other people say
And I'm learning that I wouldn't want it any other way
Call me crazy but it really doesn't matter
All that matters to me is sheHer life in a nutshell

Her life in a nutshell
No way would she want it to change me
It's not that easy 'cause
My time is often decided for me
For me

I fell down with no one there to catch me from falling
Then she came 'round
And only her tenderness stopped me from bawling my eyes out
I'm OK, and that's why

Her life in a nutshell
No way would she want it to change me
It's not that easy 'cause
My time is often decided for me
For me

But I don't tend to worry 'bout the things that other people say
And I'm learning that I wouldn't want it any other way
Call me crazy but it really doesn't matter
All that matters to me is she
Her life in a nutshell


Almost blew coca cola out of my nose...

when I read this headline on

South Jersey parents block 'The Simple Life' from filming at their kid's school, thus depriving the children a chance to meet a real life douchebag

Funniest comments so far:

  • "Well Jersey does have enough of their own."
  • "Aren't there already plenty of skeezy, skanky sluts running around in South Jersey?"
  • "Jersey girls aren't trash, trash gets picked up."
  • "I'm proud of Paris Hilton. She is single handedly proving that you don't have to be poor to be white trash."
  • "I wouldn't hit it with your stick."
And the icing on the cake!

No motivation today.

I have no motivation at all today. I just came from a meeting with one of the bigwigs and had lunch. Now that I have eaten my lunch I realized I still have not done any research my for paper for the AAG presentation in March. I have a draft due next month and I have no desire to work on it. And to top it off it isnt even noon yet. I wonder what my cat is doing? Probably doing what I wish I could do now...taking a nap. Lucky bastard.

Cause I have nothing better to do.

Even cuter if you have speakers or headphones.


Cause I'm the Gregster.

This had me laughing my ass off this morning. I got this from another blog and I had to post it. It is two phone messages left on some chick's answering machine after she gave her number to some dude named Greg. Apparently she never called Greg and he left these messages trying to get a date with her. A couple of times he points out to her that she isnt all that, that he wants nothing but to eff her and that she is missing out on an opportunity of a lifetime. A real winner here folks! I ran into a similar situation but for me it was email and ims. The dude would not get the hint. He tried for weeks to get in my pants and I just wasnt having it. I have those messages on my computer somewhere, maybe I will re-read them and remind myself of the opportunity I passed up. LOL!

Cause I'm the Gregster.

RANT: What the hell happened to me?

Once again I am still in a shitty mood. I have no idea why. Maybe its cause I avoided my last therapy session with Dr. Jane. Lately I have been ashamed of how I have been feeling and I haven't wanted to rehash my life with her. Now that the countdown to 30 has begun I have really been scrutinizing my life. Currently I dont have much going on, and hate the state that I live in. I had a failed long term realtionship that I terminated and a cat that I share custody of. I enjoy my job somewhat but am always low on cash. My apt is small and cramped and I can never mange to keep it clean. Ugh, what the hell happened? Where/when did I take a wrong turn? Was it when I moved to MD? Was it a failed relationship? I guess I am in freak out mode again. I had so many plans for my life and none of it happened. At this age I was supposed to have my PhD, married with my own family. I have none of the above.

What would make me happy? More money for one. Living in a other state is another. I am stuck here to at least March 2006. Controlling my emotions is def on that list. I have to stop cancelling sessions. Oh and I think I pissed Mr. K off once again. Wow, am I the best or what?

Right now I trying to figure out how the hell did the JETS get into the playoffs?

I am going back under the covers. Blah.

Good night.


Tired of watching tv.

I had a bit of a respite this afternoon as I went into downtown Bmore with a friend to have lunch. I had a good time as we caught up and I was able to talk about what is going on with my life. I really dont have many friends here in Bmore and that's cause I was involved in a relationship where my time was monopolized and I didnt really work on friendships with other people. Now that I have all of this time on my hands I am not quite sure what to do with myself. I dont really have a lot to spend until I get paid next and no one to do anything with. Sometimes I get sad and that is one of the reasons why I continue seeing my therapist, to have someone to talk to. Tonight I am very restless and pacing the apartment. My cat doesnt seem very happy either. :( I better go watch more tv or I am going to start thinking my crazy thoughts again and then get really upset. Looks like I am going to bed early too, lucky me.

Butthead Lake

Census Lists Renamed Lake As 'Butthead'

LAKE STEVENS, Wash. - Someone in the Census Bureau may be watching a little too much MTV. Bevis Lake, a 5.7-acre body of water in a forested area about 25 miles northeast of Seattle, is now appearing in Bureau records with a different name: Butthead Lake.
Those two names — Bevis and Butthead — are almost identical to the 1990s MTV cartoon show "Beavis and Butt-head," which featured a pair of slacker teenagers who watch music videos and make bad jokes.

Someone at the Census Bureau must have gotten bored and made a joke out of naming the lake, said Ken Brown, a land surveyor with the state Department of Natural Resources.
"It's got to be," he said.

It's not unusual for small lakes in out-of-the-way places to have different names because of variations in county, state or other official records, but there are no such indications in this case, Brown said.

"That means someone is playing a joke, I think," Brown said.


Day off/Running Errands.

My work schedule allows me to take every 2nd Friday off. I work what is called an advanced schedule (I work 9 hour days). On these Friday's off I like to take care of errands so that I dont have to do it on the weekends. And since I will not be getting a visit from MR. K I have to keep myself busy. Here is what I plan on doing this weekend.

Go to the gym.
Go to UPS to pickup a package.
Go to The Charles to see "The Motorcycle Diaries".
Hit Either Pier 1 or Bed Bath and Beyond causeI got two gift cards that are burning a hole in my pocket. As a matter of fact I have one to Borders too! YAY!

Saturday I am having a lunch with a friend and we are going to the bead store.

Sunday is for Football and reading the NY Times in my pjs.

Pretty good weekend :)

Being Puerto Rican /Three Kings Day.

I actually have plans tonight believe it or not. I am going with a friend from work (Tonja) and a friend from VA (Beatriz) to a three kings celebration sponsored by ASPIRA in DC. This holiday is much bigger in the Hispanic community than in the US. I think they call it Epiphany here in the States. It is the day when the three kings came to visit the baby Jesus. Most people dont remember that they came after he was born not the day of his birth. I think that has to do with the nativity scenes people put under their Christmas trees as the three kings are usually represented at the manger, people associate their presence with the minute Jesus was born.

I haven't gone out during the week in a very , very long time. And as I have the day off tomorrow I can stay out as late as I want :) The event is free all they requested was a donation of a children's book for their afterschool programs. I am looking forward to Spanish food, which I dont eat enough of unless I go home. I even got dressed up for the occasion and got a haircut as well. Woo Hoo! I get to be a PR tonite :)

Adios Tucker.

Just read that CNN let go of Tucker Carlson today and that they are going to cancel Crossfire. I was a little surprised but after the whole Jon Stewart fiasco (see my previous blog entry in the Oct archives) I can't say that I didn't see it coming. The only reason that I watched Crossfire was cause of Tucker. There was something about his conservative, disheveled, bowtie wearing ass that I loved. He'll be ok though as long as he keeps his gig on PBS (rumor has it his daddy got him the show) Unfiltered. I actually went out and got his book and I was lucky enough to find one that was autographed. I guess what goes around comes around. LOL!


Another Ashlee faux pax

This one is for you Eliza.

Ashlee gets booed at the Orange Bowl

No little ho down dance this time :P


Note to self: Lay off the sleeping pills

Last night I took 3 sleeping pills because I was wide awake after midnight. The dosage on the bottle says take 1-3 pills before bedtime. I got this prescription from my regular Dr. because I was having anxiety attacks that were causing me to sleep for about 3 hours a night. I am a at least 9 hours a night person (well not for the past month or so) so I was a complete mess in the morning. My therapist (Dr. Jane) had a hard time convincing me to get the prescription because I am totally against putting drugs into my body (well except during college, I no longer participate in the 4:20 club). Anyway, I finally got the pills and I took one and it didnt really do anything for me. So last night I upped the dosage. Big mistake. I am still hung over this morning. I had a can of coke and it helped a bit but now I think its worn off. Ugh.

Well at least my cramps are gone. And my nasty attitude from yesterday. I apologize to anyone that I may have caused harm or grief. Especially Mr. K. I am sorry amorcito, thanks for dealing with me yesterday.


I finally got out from under the haziness I felt this morning. It might due to the 3 cokes I have had so far.

Shower Partner

I was sitting on my bed trying to distract myself with folding laundry when all of a sudden I had a crying bout. It came on all of a sudden. I felt my make-up smearing down my face so I jumped in the shower. If you ever have to have a crying fit do it in the shower. Not only will the water drown out the heaving, you clean up pretty well. I noticed the Leo had snuck in between my shower curtain and the liner and just sat there while I showered. Somehow, and I dont know how, that totally calmed me down. That cat has a 6th sense I swear. He shows up at just the right time. Once I felt better he jumped off and went on to do whatever he does when I am not around. I feel much better, my sinuses are cleared, I can now raise my arms over my head (they were sore from the gym yesterday) and I am squeaky clean. I am now going to retire for the evening and hope that when I wake tomorrow everything will be better. I hope so cause I cancelled my damn therapy appt with Dr. Jane. Prob a mistake but I didnt want to have to rehash the day's events with her at $125 a pop. OOFA.


I need a do over.

Ever wish you could wake up and start the day all over again. I sure as hell do.

Moral of the story: Dont over think cause then you start worrying about shit that will drive you crazy and make you angry this will totally ruin your day.

I slept most of the afternoon and I am going back to bed. Physically I feel like someone took a rusty exacto and cut me open. At least my cat is being nice to me.



You ever have one of those days?

Where you wake up in the morning all pissy and have absolutely no idea why? I feel so fucking angry today and I dont want to deal with anyone. I am going to sit in my cube hoping to be ignored. The less human contact I have today the better. I am going to get a donut, that way I can feel even worse later this morning when I realize I just hindered my visit to the gym last night.



Looks like I am going to go home early today. I finished up some work that I had to do. Will try to make it till noon. Looks like it was a bad day to get out of bed.

Should I break out my lightning rod?

From today's Yahoo News.

Brainy women face handicap in marriage stakes: British survey

"A chap with a high IQ is going to get a demanding job that is going to take up a lot of his energy and time. In many ways he wants a woman who is an old-fashioned wife and looks after the home, a copy of his mum in a way."

In my experience most of the guys that I have dated want a stay-at-home wifey. I am not critiquing women who choose to do this with their lives but I am not the type of woman who can stay at home raising the youngins. Since moving to MD I have met more women who have chosen, or plan on choosing, the stay-at-home option. This was quite new for me as I never really met a woman other than my aunts who stayed at home with the children. Listen, even if I were in a situation where I were going to have children I would have to work. Not only for the financial reasons but because I know myself and I would go stir crazy keeping house and raising kids. Honestly, I'd stay at home if I could afford to - minus the kids. :)

So, now that I am nearing 30 (and I am well educated btw) I have increasing been consumed with the thoughts of will I ever meet Mr. Right? I have met fluently of Mr. Right Nows. But as I get older I am facing more and more inquiries about my marriage status and my plans. If I really wanted to get married I suppose that I could have but I have never been the one to settle for less. I am a romantic (under my tough Brooklyn girl exterior) I just dont like it to admit it. If I ever do tie the knot it will be with someone who I admire, makes me laugh, have chemistry with and oh yeah love. Is this too much to ask for? Maybe. Will I lower my standards? No.

I knew someone who told me that I had a greater chance of getting hit by lightning than getting married after 30 (or was it 35) . Yes, he was (and still is) quite the asshole. Coincidentally, he fits in the "My wife is going to stay at home barefoot and pregnant category". And yes, ladies this fine piece of man is still available :P Personally I would rather get hit by thousands of volts of electricity than marry a jerk like that. At least I would be guaranteed a hell of a ride.

Great Start To A Great Year.

Last night was the best New Year's Eve I have ever had. It was nice to be amongst friends and loved ones. I met new friends, caught up with old ones and had a great time! I received a gift that I wasn't expecting but that I love :) And I heard something from someone that I have been wanting to hear for a few weeks now. I was a very, very happy girl this weekend. I can't wait to see what the rest of the year brings.
