I scream for Ice Cream

The sketchy ice cream truck.

OK I don’t live in a ghetto like white lady in the hood, but there are some tweekers around and there are a few places I would be careful walking after dark. But all in all, my neighborhood isn’t too bad.

Couple of years ago, all of a sudden I start hearing that sound in my hood, you know the dingalingaling of an ice cream truck. Now this is a little weird. We are kind of a rural area and we have never had an ice cream truck before. There are some kids in my neck of the woods, but not a lot. If I had started an ice cream truck business, I could think of a lot of other neighborhoods that would be way more profitable, if I was selling ice cream.

The other strange thing is, I’d hear that trucks song and before you know it, it would be gone. And then I’d hear it again thirty or forty minutes later; I’d hear the damn thing all the time but I never saw it. (Ohhh, it is a ghost!) Actually I was beginning to think someone was screwing around out here. It took me weeks to actually see the ice cream truck. And that thing was hauling ass!

Now I’m thinking, “OK that is a real ice cream truck, and it is doing the speed limit. Something ain’t right here.”  What ice cream truck drives around with its bell dingalinging at thirty miles an hour? An ice cream truck is supposed to drive really slow, so the kids can go pester their parents for money and get back out there to buy something. Of course I’m just laughing my ass off, thinking about some fat kid chasing after the ice cream truck.

My next thought is what a great idea! Selling drugs out of an ice cream truck.

Yep, the ice cream truck got busted!

Not seeing the light

As you can see I haven't seen daylight in awhile!

As you can see I haven’t seen daylight in awhile!

School seems to be getting on track. I sure did bite off a lot to chew. And, naturally, other stuff happens; that thing called life. I have a new car, if you can call a twenty year old car new, but it is new to me. It runs and I don’t have to worry about anyone breaking into it, poor woman’s security system. I have a new netbook for hauling around to try to do my homework on between clients. The bank approved my home refi and then two weeks later decided to cut off my line of credit. Thanks BofA! Yeah, yeah, yeah-I don’t want to hear about it. I know they are assholes but no one else would do my mortgage, actually I’m not sure why they did it. So when I have a few minutes I have to go fight with them to try and get it back, not like I might need it to finance this school nonsense.

Life is good. Crazy, insane, busy (so why am I broke?) but it is good. I have been able to keep up, barely, with my homework and still get in my workouts. I knew I was in trouble earlier when I was doing so much studying I didn’t have time to work out. Of course something had to give, lets just say I won’t be having company over to the house anytime soon. Did you know that dust bunnies have a maximum density level, at a certain point they just stop growing.

So back to the school work…

Reading, writing and arithmetic

Well I may be doing a lot of writing even if it hasn’t been here!

Taking on a full course load and trying to work full time has left me with no time to do much else. I’m taking Intermediate Algebra, English and a Biology class, while I started out with doing all of them online I have switched to a in person class for the Algebra. Unfortunately that meant catching up with my class while still maintain good grades in the other two. I think I may finally be getting it under control. Don’t want to say that too loudly and curse myself. Hopefully I haven’t bitten off more than I can chew; I believe my adviser called it an aggressive plan. Math has and continues to be difficult for me but I finally feel like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

So I hope to be back to blogging again, at least somewhat regularly as I enjoy it. Wish me luck I have another math exam tomorrow. I feel somewhat ready for it, which is a change of pace. Off to bed now, oooh lookie I might get to sleep before 2am!

Today’s search term

Washington state “fuck bugs”

Search term of the day, the quotes included. I saw this and went WTF? I couldn’t imagine what someone was looking for or how that got them to my blog. So I did what any good investigator would do, I Google it.

I still have no idea what they were looking for but my blog came in ninth on Google for Washington state “fuck bugs. Considering I was at the bottom of the page I’m guessing they didn’t find whatever they were looking for. I wish WordPress would have a button or someway for us to email these people and ask them “what the hell were you looking for?”

Week One~going crazy

It is my first week of full time online student, full time work and part no time life!

This is how I felt doing my Algebra homework.

This is how I felt trying to doing my Algebra homework.

Still alive, barely, I think. The usual stress, fatigue and overwhelmed feelings and then add some unexpected bullshit. So everything is normal, I guess. Hopefully things will start to settle down and I’ll find my stride.

Feels like all I’ve been doing is homework. Oh yeah that is all I’ve been doing! Too bad writing blog posts doesn’t count as doing English homework. My ass is starting to make a permanent impression on my couch. Nice visual, huh? Anyways I’m alive and hope to be back here commenting again soon.

By the way I leave for five minutes and they completely change WP? What the hell like I don’t have enough shit to deal with?

School is in session

Forgive me, I am somewhat overwhelmed.

I may not be around much for the next week or two. What on earth made me take three online classes at once? Oh, one of them is intermediate algebra, did I mention I have always sucked at math? And my college has decided to try a new online program for some of it’s online classes. Lucky me two of my classes are in the new program. I found this out the day I started. They all appeared to be in the old system, until I clicked to open them and then two of them redirected me to a new program. Wonderful get to be a guinea pig and try to figure out how to navigate in a new program.

The day I started my classes, literally fifteen minutes into it the internet crashed. When I called the cable company, after listening to bad muzak for twelve minute they informed me that the entire area was down because a car hit some pole. It never did come back up before I just gave up and went to bed. Not my lucky day!

Also my biology teacher seems to like to do video presentations ~long ones. Long and boring ones that are poorly arranged and she says Uhm a lot. After fifteen minutes of listening to her go uhm countless time and convey about three minutes of information I thought I was going to scream. All the while looking at a picture of the syllabus which I had already downloaded and read. *sigh* at least it made me want to go do math problems….

I am really beginning to love this photo. I think I may make it my Gravatar picture.
