feminism

I feel like nowadays I would be looked down upon for wanting to be a stay-at-home mom over having a career. I mean there are careers I am interested in (I am going to nursing school still as long as I get in) but not more than raising a family.

this summer so far

Aside from not having air conditioning, it has been a pretty good summer so far. I'm starting school in about two weeks and Justin and I just celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary. I've been staying pretty healthy, eating mostly healthy food and exercising with jenny. We keep each other motivated (i think jenny does a bit more motivating). I think when I am in school I will have more energy for exercise because I won't be picking up kids all day. I am trying to get some volunteer hours but apparently everyone volunteers in the summer and no hospitals have space! Oh well, I guess I'll just work more and save up some money (more like pay back my credit card bills from my trip to Japan). Also, I am excited to go see Hedwig and the Angry Inch live during Pride fest on June 28th.

Japan Pics


It has been a long time since I've posted and many exciting things have happened. For one...I went to Japan!! I will also be going back to school this summer to be a nursing assistant. I am still waiting to hear back from nursing school for the fall though.

Here are some pics from Japan:

The Sun!


It's a beautiful, sunny Seattle afternoon. I think I will exercise outside today.

Where The Wild Things Are

There is a Where The Wild Things Are movie coming out this year that was directed by Spike Jonze. It looks awesome.

Check out the trailer.

BSG Finale

So I was a bit disappointed in the ending. It was more religious and cheesy than I would have liked. The battle scenes in the first part were great but showing the dancing japanese robot at the end in times square, c'mon. Then again it was on the scifi channel so what did i expect (at least there were no giant mutant monsters). And it isn't really over, they decided unsurprisingly to make a special from the point of view of the cylons. Way to go capitalism. I know I will watch it anyway, I just hope it is up to BSG not scifi channel standards.

Yelling at Cats

My cat somehow climbed up to the top of my closet door and just walked back and forth across the top until he got enough courage to jump down. It reminded me of one of my favorite youtube videos...yelling at cats.

Fucking jump!

Do it you bitch!

Get the fuck down from there!

blah

Justin and I celebrated his birthday at home on friday. I made him a steak dinner and surprised him with a cake and candles that said "26." We drunkenly watched Battlestar Galactica although I missed the end.

Saturday I babysat and painted the kids nails and they were way more excited than I could have imagined. Apparently they have never had their nails painted before. Then they kept thinking their nails were still wet and wouldn't touch anything for like 2 hours, it was really funny. We also watched Nightmare Before Christmas, and the little girl kept asking me when the nightmare was coming. So cute!

I'm really excited about getting my car in about 10-14 days. I'm going to run all sorts of errands.

I have 3 more classes left in my microbiology class and then I can apply to nursing school. I really hope I get in. I will be pretty disappointed if I don't. I'm getting burned out at my current job and I want to leave soon so it will be on a good note for me.

I have been playing with Photo Booth a lot. It amuses me way more than it should.

Justin is the coolest

Justin was published in the January issue of an online journal called Lit Choas. In fact, he is on the cover! Check it out.

New Years Eve

Here is a video of the Space Needle fireworks that we watched from the roof of a building nearby.

NEW BED!!



Justin and I thought that we probably shouldn't sleep on a futon for the next couple years like we have the past two, so we went mattress shopping at sleep country with Jenny. We were expecting to just get a cheap one on sale, but deep down in my heart I wanted a Tempur-Pedic mattress and the sales guy could tell. He through in some free pillows, a frame, and a discount on the cover and it turned me into an impulse mattress buyer. Regardless of the free stuff, I wouldn't have bought it until he said we could finance it over 36 months with no interest. That's like $60 a month, which is less than cable. Yay! I am actually going to have a comfortable bed!
