Today, I signed into wordpress and found that I had my busiest day. Thanks guys! I’m touched. I’m currently working on a post that should be really good, but I also have a lot of reading and a huge paper due Thursday, so it will probably have to wait until Friday (sorry, guys).
In other news, I had a fantastic weekend with Stephanie. It was nice and relaxing. I’m now looking forward to watching the SAG awards tonight with my mother and my aunt, judging dresses and winners.
A lot of the reading I’ve been doing has been for my Adolescent Behavior and Development class. I love it. I am fascinated by adolescents. They are so moldable, in positive and negative ways. I want to help them figure out who they are without the influence of society telling them what they “should” be. It’ll be difficult, but I’m up for the challenge (and already facing it in my internship…)
Me and Stephanie at my graduation
Today, my friend Stephanie came to visit. Because of this, I will not write a lot today, but I decided to blog about how amazing she is. Stephanie is spectacular. I can have fun with her and talk to her about real life things. When she came this weekend, she told me she came with no expectations except to hang out with me. This is always refreshing to hear because I now know I don’t have to try and entertain. It is great to be able to see her and hang out with her for a while. I love her lots 🙂
I work at a video rental store, and I have to say, one of my biggest annoyances is when customers get in line and talk on their phone. I have the tendency to ask questions, as it’s my job to find out certain information and update files on people, and if someone is on their phone they will be annoyed at the fact that I am interrupting their conversation. Really, can’t the call wait until you’re done? This is one of the reasons I think cell phones are ruining our relationships. We suddenly feel the need to connect with people based on our time frame and our needs, thus shutting out those that are near. Please, if you’re using your phone, wait until I’m done talking to you…
A friend of mine posted this story on facebook today. Since I’ve sat in classes for ten hours today and I’m exhausted, I’ll let you guys read that instead. It’s a wonderful story of people being nice.
