I am torn. I need and want to spend time with my family, especially my little sis, but I also want to hang out with all my wonderful friends here in Iowa City. I am going home this weekend for my sister's solo and ensemble contest and to go to a Rockapella concert with the fam. Next weekend is Easter and I will most likely be heading home for that as well to see my grandma in Pella and to sing in the church choir. I finally don't have to be studying for something and I have to drive home. I don't like going home two weekends in a row, but I don't know what else to do. I wish Easter was a week later. It's not that I don't want to go home, I just want a weekend to play! And maybe start on the book list Amanda found.

I miss being able to read for hours on end. I used to get in trouble when I was at home for reading too late on school nights. Now that I won't get in trouble for reading, I can't read!! I am still up too late on school nights, but it isn't because I am enjoying what I am reading. I still haven't finished reading The Poisonwood Bible which I started when I was a freshman. I have read a bunch of other books, but haven't finished that one. It's a great book too.

I just figured out why my Teddy Grahams seem so small; they are mini Teddy Grahams!!! I need sleep.

At about 6:00 I decided to take a quick nap so I could be awake a ready to study. I didn't wake up until the phone rang at 7:30. So much for a short nap. I have never been good at taking naps but usually it is because I can't fall asleep.

You know a test is hard when after about 55 minutes of a one hour test nobody has finished and the professor asks if you want 15 extra minutes and he gets a resounding 'yes' from most of the class. That was the best response he has ever gotten to one of his questions.

This is why you should not have family members (my dad) at ISU

They tend to send you things like this:

"A farmer in Iowa City was working his cattle one day when he heard
faint music coming from nearby. After hunting about for a time, he
discovered the sound was loudest near one particular calf, and was even
louder near the calf's tail.

Putting his head close to the calf's hind end, he heard the University
of Iowa fight song. Amazed, he put the calf in the truck and drove the
animal to a veterinarian in Ames.

When the vet asked him what was going on, the farmer told him. The vet
went around behind the calf and listened too. He agreed he heard the
University of Iowa fight song but didn't seem particularly excited.

"Man, how can you stand there and not be amazed?" the farmer asked.
The vet, a third generation Iowa State graduate, said, "Bud, I'm a
Cyclone and I've been listening to assholes sing that song all of my

I just reminded him he has two daughters going to U of I and they both have black belts, but then, so does he. Hmmm...

You know you have been working in a lab too long when you are washing dishes at home in your kitchen sink and you look for the distilled water to rinse your dishes.

I need a break

I have two exams this week. One is tomorrow night and the other is Wed morning. I haven't started studying for either of them. I also have no clean tkd uniforms so I will have to do some laundry at some point. I can't wait until after Wed morning. I will only have one exam the next week and then two weeks without any exams. I am hoping to get my little sis over here during that time. Then you guys can meet her!!

My aunt gave me the great idea of getting her out of the house while my dad moves his stuff out. I really don't want her there during all that. She has it a lot harder than me because she is still living at home and has to witness all that is going on in relation to the divorce. All I really have to deal with is an extra key on my keychain.

I love Chex!! Maybe that's what I will get when I go grocery shopping this weekend.

I keep getting confused as to which day it is. I taught at the Gym Nest tonight because Amanda had a lot of work. I was fine until I got there in my uniform. It didn't feel like Thursday. I usually don't wear my uniform on Thursday. I was a little late because we had a little problem with my physics lab. Our final answers were about 20% off of what they should have been. Not so good. I hate physics. I need a shower. It was hot and humid in the Nest and now I feel gross. I think I will be subbing there next week too, because Linda will be studying. I am soo tired and my room is sooo messy. I think I am going to shower and straighten my room while I watch Futurama.

Now Wendy has a blog and it is all my fault!!! I also have pretty comments now!! Yeah, I know... I am supposed to be doing homework.

I can't concentrate on my homework right now. It is frustrating me a lot right now. Our book has no examples similar to the homework problems and we do nothing like these problems in class. I am tempted to not even do the homework. Maybe I need more caffeine or talk to my old roommate Wendy on MSN for awhile.

I need another spring break. I don't really feel like I had one anymore. I was talking to my friend Joanna during physics yesterday and she feels the same way. What I really need is a winter break right now. This month is going too fast. I feel like February just ended but in reality it is closer to April than February. I have been so busy that the time just flies by.

I have just decided to remove one stress in my life. I am going to drop piano lessons. My TA expects me to practice three times a week at the music building for a one hour class. I don't have that kind of time to devote to it when I work 15-17 hours a week, teach tkd for three hours, take 14 semester hours of classes, and go to tkd my self. That isn't including the however many hours I spend on homework each week. I have only one free night each week and I don't intend to spend it at the music building, but then that still wouldn't meet her expectations of three times a week. I was so excited about getting to play the piano again, but it turned out to be more stress than fun. I feel better already just planning to drop it. I did learn a lot, but I don't think it is worth it anymore.

I did get Alias and Wonderfalls taped and I am very excited to watch them!!

Let's just say I have had a weird weekend. Saturday was pretty normal. I went to my sister's speech contest and she did very well. Sunday started out pretty normally with church, although we had a substitute pastor today while ours took the paramedic written test, but then got weird. I follow my dad to a house which he then tells me and my sister is his and then leads us inside and tells us my parents are getting a divorce. Really not a surprise (I have been expecting this since I was in high school), but it is kinda surreal. After a tour of his new house he hands us plastic enevelopes and tells us our grandmother left us each about $30,000. Then I go to my grandpa's place and he has Lex and I sort through all my grandma's jewelry and pick what we want. It was sad to see their wedding bands sitting in a box. Then I get back to IC go to a movie and get asked out.

I am still not sure whether this is a good day, bad day, or just plain abnormal day. I am worried about how my little sis will handle all of this. I wish I could have talked to her about it. I really hope my VCR taped Alias and Wonderfalls like I told it to.

I'm Back!!

I know you all were waiting anxiously until I got back. Josh, Nick, Brian, and I spent most of our time riding the L and wandering around trying to find where we were trying to go and eating. I didn't buy anything for myself in Chicago except for food and beer. While we were wandering around Michigan Ave. I found a little dragon holding a tennis racket for my sis. She collects dragons and just started playing tennis so I thought it fit. I already have a CD for her too. She didn't get me a birthday present, but I get her two things for no reason at all. Aren't I a nice sister? I had my first whole beer and also a green one. I am also now a member of the Mug Club at Rockbottom. If I ever go back I can get a bigger beer for the same price as a normal one. Maybe I will learn to like beer yet. I will probably have to learn to drink them a little faster as well. It took me about an hour to finish my green beer. I also have a bunch of coasters we took and a key to Josh's truck that I forgot to give back.

Actually I did get myself something besides food. I can't believe I forgot about it!!! I bought the soundtrack to Once More With Feeling the Buffy musical episode. Josh and I sang to it on the way back.

I am now waiting for the lasagna I just made to finish cooking. I better go check on this. I often wonder why I decided to add "discourse" to the title of my blog. It isn't very organized. Maybe that's whats facetious about it.

Did you guess right, Kristen??

I hate Iowa weather!!!

I am sooo sick of this stupid snow. It has been snowing since I woke up this morning. Amanda, Kristen and I ate at the Ground Round after a little tkd workout with Josh. We were in there for about an hour and when we left, I had about 4" of snow on my car!!! Driving home wasn't fun either. I don't think I got over 25 mph. I only saw one snow plow and it was on the other side of the road. It doesn't look like they have been down Westgate St. once yet. We do have one of those speedometer things on our street though. Of course it is towards our end of the street facing towards Melrose, so it is only at the one end of the street with the least amount of traffic and it is after the hill so you can't see it until you are close to it anyway. How dumb!! At least I know the speed limit on our street now though I think I have only seen one police car around here since I moved in.

I was just going to say that I think my roommate had disappeared, but I just heard her. I haven't seen her more than 3 seconds today and she didn't come to work. Which is weird since last week someone else had to do some of her work since she was so far behind. Oh well, not my problem!!

I have a better idea of what I think of The Passion of the Christ now. It was a very good telling of the story. I could definitely tell it was a Catholic interpretation of the scriptures. I actually read it again today to get a better idea of what was going on. I still haven't figured out why Mary and Mary Magdalene mopped up Jesus' blood from the ground. I knew what was going to happen when I walked into the theater, but I wasn't quite prepared for the violence depicted. I have the same question as Amanda; what was the reason for all the violence? When I read the version in Matthew today, there wasn't a mention about how violent it was. There was a lot of mocking of him, but no details of the violence. I guess I never really thought of them beating Jesus before the crucifixion. Every other movie or musical (i.e. Godspell, Jesus Christ Superstar, the Easter cantata at my chruch) I have seen about Jesus and the crucifixion has never portrayed that amount of violence. The woman portraying Satan was very creepy, as Amanda mentioned, but so was the "baby" Satan carried at one point. I can see why anti-Semitism was an issue, even though a line that would have made it seem very anti-Semitic was removed. As far as I can tell, it follows the scruptures very closely. What was said was what was written. I can also see why the violence may seem excessive. I am very glad I saw it, and I am glad I went with the people I did. I am not sure whether I would watch it again or not. It was hard to watch.

Snow was pretty in November and December. It is now March and my spring break. Snow is not pretty anymore. I want to wear flip flops not snow boots!!

Sunday, March 14, 2004

Amanda, Tacia and I saw The Passion of the Christ. I will tell you what I thought of it when I know what I thought of it.

Alias was entertaining as always. I hope that we get to see Sark more now that they have him in custody.

I am now watching one of my fave episodes of Buffy, Conversations with Dead People. One of only three actors to be in all of Joss's TV shows, Jonathan M. Woodward. I am starting to really like him as an actor. His character in this episode, Holden Webster, is great. The only thing I don't like about this episode is how much Dawn screams, but it does have great music. Angel is on next!! I love that Wes rides a motorcycle.

I also watched Evil Dead this afternoon while I didn't clean my room and I accidentally froze some of my celery.

I am too obsessed with TV and movies. Did you know Finding Nemo has the highest body count of any Disney movie? I spend too much time on

I can't decide which of my five Bibles I should read the book of Jonah from. It isn't that long, I could probably read all 4 versions. I was sitiing here trying to figure out how I aquired so many bibles. Three of them make sense. One is a children's version illustrated by a second cousin. Another was one of my grandpa's study bibles with notes for one of his meetings with his parishioners and a bunch of his bookmarks, which I received when I graduated. It's fun to see his handwriting on something. He had a stroke when I was a baby so he didn't write much unless he was using his computer. I guess I am feeling rather sentimental tonight. The other I received from the Congo church when I was confirmed. I am not sure why I got the other one. I think I may have insisted on getting it when I got sick of reading the version adapted to a 3rd grade reading level before I was confirmed. It does have nice pictures though. The last is the Tanakh which I bought for the class I am taking. I learned later that I didn't really need to buy it, but could have used on of my own translations. It is the prof's preferred version so I might start with that one. I could just read them all, Jonah isn't very long.

I truly need help

I know I have a problem with sandals (mostly flip flops) when I buy a key chain that is a replica of a pair of flip flops I already own. I also spent a good portion of my day looking at sandals. I didn't buy any though!! I would wear sandals all year round if my toes wouldn't freeze off, therefore making it quite difficult to wear sandals. I have decided the Chaco sandals are too expensive and am now looking at the Teva version which is very similar. They cost $40 less so I actually may be able to afford them. I really do have more than enough sandals, but I just can't seem to stop wanting them. At least most of the ones I buy are under $10.

I brought a bunch of stuff to Stuff Etc. Last month and went there today to check on my account. I got $47!!! I think I am going to have to bring some more stuff there. Maybe I can part with some of my flip flops that I don't wear very often. I recommend it to anyone needing to get rid of some stuff.

I bought The Evil Dead today!! I have never seen it, but I love Army of Darkness, which was on last night, so I am pretty sure I will like it. If not, I can always sell it.

After the Que...

My mini fridge keeps making weird noises and my I just put a new filter in my fish tank and it is noisier since the water flows through better now. I think I am tired enough that it doesn't matter.

Why can't it be Friday yet???

I really want some Chaco Sandals. I really wish they weren't so expensive. They are on sale at Active Endeavors downtown, but they are still $75. I don't need more sandals. I probably have over 30 pairs of flip flops alone. I am a sandal freak!! I bought two pairs of flip flops from Old Navy in January! I did wear flip flops today with my new cute coat!!

I just popped a lovely blood blister on my big toe from working out on the wood floor in TKD tonight. It was pretty nasty. I used to work out on floors like that all the time, even a cement floor, but my feet aren't used to it anymore. Amanda led a very nice yoga inspired warm-up, but it was a little bit much for my shoulder. I haven't done any yoga since last summer so it was nice. It makes me want to break out my tapes with Rodney Yee.

I have been considering going o a chiropractor because my neck and back have been sore lately. Also, an acquaintance of mine hurt her shoulder kind of like I did and went to a chiropractor for it. She said it got a lot better. I didn't go to the doctor or have my shoulder looked at. I am now regretting that since it is still hurting and it clicks. I can't even sleep on my right side anymore. I have also been considering getting a new bed. I would love a queen size bed. But that costs money. So does going to the chiropractor though. I have never gone to a chiropractor and neither has anyone in my fam. My mom wanted me to when I had tendinitis in my wrist, but I didn't go. I don't think my parents' insurance would cover it here. I would probably have to go home. I can't afford it or a bed right now and neither can my parents so I guess I will have to wait. I would also love a massage.

There is a link on that says Angel may not be cancelled. I wish they hadn't put that on there because now I will start to get my hopes up and there is a good chance it won't happen. I don't know what I am going to do when there is nothing new on TV my Joss Whedon.

I feel like spring break is more of a reality than it was yesterday or even an hour ago. I finished my physics homework, or at least what I could of it. One of the questions s worded oddly and I want to hear my friend's interpretation of it. Both of my tests are done and the one that I thought would be truly horrible was hard, but I walked by the key today when I was at work and I think I did pretty well. I need a week off. Of course I will be at work for much of it, but at least I don't have to go to class. I can now relax and watch The Daily Show and repaint my nails.

Today I ordered my first Domino's pizza and Domino's dots. It was quite good. I still like Pizza Hut better though. I think I am now going to have a cup of decaf coffee with the biscotti I got from my secret pal at work.

I think I have complained about the secret pal thing before. Mine is my boss so I feel I should do something, but I don't really feel like it. The whole secret pal thing is just weird and it doesn't really help the social dynamics of the lab or correct the problems we are having.

The weather was so nice today. I opened my window and let some fresh air into my room. I think I may wear flip flops again tomorrow. I was also planning on wearing my cute new coat. It is supposed to rain tomorrow and my coat is supposed to be water resisitant. I want to check that claim out.

I decided to take a little study break and look up some stuff about the movie version of Eragon, which is coming out fall 2005 along with the next book in the series. I was looking at the biography of the author and found out he is less than a year younger than me. Here I am sitting in my apartment staring at a biochemistry book and not knowing what I am going to do after I graduate and he is already a very successful author. I know I am young and have plenty of time, but I am constantly being asked what I am going to do after I graduate. I don't know!! I think I get asked a lot because of my area of study. Most people assume I want to go to med school and are surprised to find out I don't wanna be a doctor. My little sister is studying to be and EMT (or she is one now, I am not really sure because she just recently took a test and I don't really know how the process works) and I have thought about doing that as well, but that is about as far as I want to get in any medical related field. I was thinking being and EMT while I decide what I want to do with the rest of my life wouldn't be a bad idea. My mom and my pastor are always bugging me about becoming an EMT. Espcially since my little sis is doing the whole EMT thing and my pastor is an EMT as well. Also a guy from my high school class was an EMT with my pastor this summer and they often hung out together. If I do decide to go into a medical related field, at least I would have some good experience.

Enough ruminating about my future. I need to get back to enzymes, lipids, glycolysis and gluconeogenesis.

My sis and mom just called me. I tried calling them several times the last two days, but they were never there. My mom today during the twenty minutes today I didn't have my phone with me also. My sister has her spring break this week so they are going on a mission trip with our Congo church and the Methodist church in Eldora to Biloxi, Mississippi. They were in an RV just north of Cedar Rapids ane decided to call. I would probably be going with them if it was spring break here as well. Is it weird that my pastor asked, in the background, if I was naked as a joke? I am used to him saying things like that to me and others, but most people think it is strange. I can see why, but he is young, 29 I think, and he lives across the street from my parents and I worked as his secretary for a summer. It is hard to think of him as a pastor sometimes. He recorded the message on my parents answering machine and we think nothing of it. I know most parishioners see their pastor as a pastor and nothing else, especially Catholics. I think most of the congregation at our church isnt' like that. Corey is just another person to my family. He's a friend and a neighbor. Most people don't believe he is a pastor when they meet him. I have talked with my Catholic friends about our relationship with Corey and they just can't understand it.

Tacia and studied biochem for over 2 1/2 hours at the Java House tonight. I am soo sick of studying. I stared at my notes most of the day. It is definitely better studying with someone else instead of alone. I think my study break tomorrow will be laundry.

I have two exams next week , one Mon and one Tues, so I should probably get to bed . I hate going to sleep, yet I hate waking up. That doesn't really make sense does it ?

It's Finally Friday!!!

I know you have all been waiting with great anticipation for me to post something again. Well here you go...

I just put up new curtains in my room. They look much better than the nasty, beige curtains that come in every apartment. I am not really sure if I am allowed to change them, but I just don't care. The curtains were on sale at target for $4 so I grabbed two of them. I have been meaning to do something about the ugly things since I moved in, but I never got around to it. I was going to buy a couple yards of fabric and slip stitch or use straight pins to pin it to the existing curtains. This was much easier than that.

I also bought Eragon by Christopher Paolini on sale for $13!! It is a kind of Harry Potterish. I thought it was a really great deal until I got to Wal-Mart and noticed that the normal price was $12 something. Oh well!!

I have one of those Italian charm bracelets and I ended up getting three new charms for it today. Currently I have my initials, my birthstone, a person doing a side kick, a pair of eighth notes, Herky and one that says "Iowa Hawkeyes". My mom bought me one with piano keys for Valentine's Day and it just came in today. Also I bought a couple Buffy themed ones on eBay for really cheap and they arrived today. It can really be a pain to put new charms on the bracelet. I have found it is best to use a paper clip for this endeavor. I am going to decide where I want the new ones before I start pulling my bracelet apart to add them.

Firefly is going to be a movie called Serenity!!!! I am soo excited about it.

Guess who's going to be on the next ep of Angel... Adam Baldwin!!!

There is a Japanese guy at work who is working for his Ph.D, I believe. I don't really talk to him, and I don't make an effort to. Most of the time I can't understand what he is saying to me when he does talk to me. Lately he has been acting very strangely toward me and others in the lab. A few weeks ago he was walking toward me in the hall and flipped me off then asked if that was offensive. I told him it was and walked away. He did it again to another person in the lab and he has been saying weird and often offensive things to her as well. Today he followed me into the conference room when I was putting my pop in the fridge and stared at me as I tried to walk through the door and then left after me. He keeps looking at me as if I am supposed to say something to him. He did tell me I was honest the other day. I guess that is good unless he doesn't really know what he said to me and he thought it was mean. People in the lab are ready to complain about his behavior. He is rude and condescending and it is very awkward to work with him. I think he is supposed to be here for another year and a half so hopefully we can get something worked out with him.

I still haven't decided if I am going home to see my sister's show choir performance on Saturday night. I know she really wants me to be there, but with a test on Monday and another on Tuesday it may be hard to make it. I better start studying.

I am quite excited about karaoke!!!

we need to do some yoga around here

So things just exploded at my apartment. Stephanie had a fit over a joke about the rent. The guys pay a penny less than we do because Stephanie rounds up and Adam rounds down when dividing the rent. Adam was being a dork and changed the amount written on our white board to be a penny less. When we get home later Stephanie made sure we know that she had noticed the change indicated by a message on the board. Adam is my other roomie's boyfriend if I just confused you. This led to a big argument about her not talking to us about things and just constantly leaving us scathing messages such as the one today. Tension had been building around here, but I am still not sure if Stephanie noticed. She tends to be a little dense. She actually called her boyfriend, who is Adam's roommate, and he joined us. We also made sure she new we didn't like that Seth stayed here even when she wasn't here. Seth, I admit, handled it all well and didn't try to defend her or get involved. Stephanie even went so far as to say she was fine if Seth didn't sleep here at all, which I know is a total lie. She was just trying to cover herself. The issue of stamps was also brought up. She has complained about having to buy the stamps to send the bills yet never asks for any. Rey and I have both said that if she just asked we would give them to her.

I need to get out of this situation. Rey and I talk, but Stephanie just leaves us notes. I have been meaning to talk to her for a couple weeks now about Seth staying here when she isn't here, but we are rarely home at the same time and I have studying to do most of the time including right now. I am glad a stupid joke has finally let us get all this crap taken care of, sort of.

In other news...

I ate about 3/4 of a frozen pizza tonight. My little sister would be proud. I really don't have any other news.

After a little piano, I may break out my new fuchsia yoga mat.
