today i worked out

GRADUATE SCHOOL REQUIRES A LOT OF SPRINTING FROM THE BILLING OFFICE, TO YOUR HOME DEPARTMENT TO THE GRADUATE DIVISION OFFICE COLLECTING FORMS, GETTING SIGNATURES AND WRITING CHECKS. i think it is safe to say that 40% of graduate school is sprinting around campus, getting signatures.

. . .

just some things ive been ruminating about in the last few days. . .

i think the level of care Prius drivers take toward the environment is inversely related to the amount of care they feel toward pedestrians/other drivers. "I SUPER LOVE THE ENVIRONMENT!! ..get out of my way person crossing the street, im getting really great gas milage!." granted, many of these toyotas may be coasting on account of their own will (see colossal toyota brake recall), but i think the more Prius drivers think they are saving the world the less they want other drivers/people in it.

wtf will all these beer companies trying to be punny, etc. keith stone aka keystone, and thirst inning, aka budweiser's "third" inning. very clever, guys/gals. keep it coming.

where have all the cowboy's gone?

and lastly, i am about to file my dissertation, and i am realizing its a bittersweet ordeal. the thought of freedom from its grip is invigorating, but now what is my excuse for staying home on a saturday night?? MLIA.

[[ 90210 ]]

i moved.

two times in 2 months.

"they" say moving is one of the more stressful things you'll experience in your life, just barely behind a divorce. although my moves are not quite on the scale of life changing, etc, im going to say that it was tiring to boot, and i feel like someone slipped something into my diet coke.

every thing i packed i minded that i would eventually have to unpack. this was a really important exercise. i ended up giving up a lot of stuff as a result. i hope someone at deseret industries appreciates my feather mattress topper and blue puma track jacket from 1999.

since moving here i have gotten two warning tickets left on my car for not having a current registration tab. really? THANKS GOVERNMENT!!

as a result of the past events re: this illusive, heck ELUSIVE too, registration i made an appointment with the DMV to clear this all up. my appointment is for August 16th; the DMV is SOOO popular. ive decided to leave a note on my car with my appointment with the DMV showing so the cops can save ticket paper. its shiny and its color; that cannot be cheap.

since moving ive built my bed with my own hands,


gone grocery shopping,

and bought new "china".


i love my new home!


now to just get a parking permit and updated registration...

{ the fuzz }

recently i got a new car, remember? well, i love him, but i have yet to get my registration and sticker update from the DMV. the volvo dealership said it would take 6-8 weeks. its now week 7, so i just hope 6-8 was an accurate guess.

ANYWAYS, ive been pulled over a total of three times (twice in one day!) since getting my new car because my registration is expired. duh. of course i dont get tickets because if you buy a car you have 90 days to update it... but like, has technology not yet progressed to the point that officers and the DMV can communicate, perhaps with a small "notes" section associated with my license plate saying something like "registration in transit" or something like that?

i worked at a waterpark in high school, and if a person tried to sneak in a friend, or forgot his/her/hes/hir pass a few times, we would make a note in the notes section so that when a different employee went to run his/shmer season pass he/she/shis would know just what kind of hoodlum he/she was dealing with. im not saying officers should write journal entries each time i get pulled over, but COME ON GUYS, THREE TIMES FOR THE SAME INFRACTION (is this an infraction? im not a lawyer, okay) THAT ISNT EVEN MY FAULT?! im really getting numb to flashing red and blue lights. aren't they suppose to scare me? psh.

ps i dont hate cops. JUST GIMME MY REGISTRATION, YO!
