Day Three: Views On Drugs And Alcohol
You've heard it for as long as you can remember, "Drugs and Alcohol are BAD and will ruin your life!"
I think that most of us just didn't care because it's such a normal things to do (well where i am from it is) and almost everyone you know drinks alcohol or does drugs. Its become normalized in today's society.
Is it bad to do them? Yes and No.
Yes because some people don't know how to moderate things in their lives and let the drugs and alcohol take over everything and sometimes make them into vicious but mostly dumb people. This is the average outcome for most people in my experience.
No because alcohol is legal and when you drink smart and in moderation, its fine. No more harmful than a soda with your meal.
As far as drugs go, I've yet to meet someone who is on drugs and not let it take over their life. Whether it be weed, meth, pills, coke, or whatever they may be on, It slowly just consumes people and that's no way to live.
I'm not going to sit here on a high horse and say I've never done anything because that would be a ridiculous lie. I don't do anything anymore because, to be honest, it got old. It's expensive and it's not always like it's portrayed on television and movies to be. It's a lifestyle I know I would definitely never go back to.

Day One: Your Current Relationship
I am currently in a relationship with a Mr. Robert Anthony Fitchett, est. September 15, 2007
Robert is more than just my lovable boyfriend, he's pretty much my sanity. It's funny how in the beginning, he was just this punk ass gangster boy in my homeroom who liked to go through my stuff every day and now he's the love of my life. We didnt start going out at school though. It just so happens that in 2007 I turned 16 years old and that means it was time to get my happy ass a job somewhere. A girl in my science class told me about her last job at a crappy bbq joint near my house so after school I went to go fill out an application at the oh so wonderful, Sonny's Real Pit BBQ. It was an instant success. I got the job on the spot and by the following Tuesday, I was a smiling cashier (: It was soo funny on my first day, they stuck me in the dish room so i knew what the back of the house guys did. My manager pulls the guy out and its Robert with a very confused smile. I worked my first shift ever with him all night and it was fun (and gross) as hell. After a while, the girls at work seemed to think that Robert and I should start going out so this is when the pestering started. I was HARASSED for the longest time to give him my number and to go out with this boy. I caved. I gave them my number and was told to expect a text after work. That night I went home and waited and waited and waited til I passed out. NOTHING. I woke up feeling like such an idiot and dreaded having to see his face again. The giggling smiles at work were met with my low annoyed eyes. I tell them the texts never came and away they ran, back into the kitchen with a fury that would make Satan hide. I laughed and went about my work day as usual until one of the girls pops up with a small piece of cardboard box. It has HIS number. Isn't that some crap? I'm the female therefore I should be wooed. I take it anyways. When I get home that evening, I consider not texting since I got no text the day before ... but something makes me do it anyways. "Message Sent" it says. The beginning of a crazy change. Thousands of texts, emails, calls, voicemails, letters, notes, dinners, movies, and random adventures later ... here I am. Still with my babycakes and loving every second. This guy knows how to make me smile and laugh like no other can, he knows just what to say in every situation. We're complete opposites in many ways and we're oddly the same in many others. He completes me. Even though sometimes I want nothing more than to jab something sharp through his juggular but thats natural for any couple. He's the sweetest thing I've ever met. Once he wraps his arms around me, its like i'm lost to the abyss of just pure happiness. Not to sound mushy or anything. :P
:) Rob & Herm (:

They can grow between 4-10 in and live for an average of 30 years (:
The only problem (kinda) is that the habitat is rather expensive, like jeeeeeeeeezus. I looked up estimates of about $700-$1000. I really want one but im not sure my pocket can handle that right now. Things have been a little rough lately and I may have to delay it for awhile but it just gives me time to collect the things needed slowly (: First on my list is to find a nice tank to keep the cutiepie in. :D
THE MISSION BEGINS...

I FAIL AT FEEDING MYSELF
no lie, i cannot cook a meal to save my life!
Now, I can bake for an army but on top of the stove is a whole different story. I am slowly learning new ways to feed myself WITHOUT a microwave. This is very very hard for me. I didnt realize how much I used the stupid thing til I quit! It's been okay since food does taste better coming out of the oven but I came home from work and i was craving some ramen noodles. We only had the cup o ramen so for the first time in my life, I boiled water. lol I read an article a few days ago on stumbleupon about the many things that ramen can become with a little effort. Ramen Noodles 2.0 in my opinion. It inspired me to make boiled eggs to add to my ramen so I managed to boil the eggs (i wasnt sure how long they take so i did it for 8 mins) and then i boiled more water to add to my crispy noodles. It came out freakin awesome! i was soo proud of me. Its a small accomplishment but it was progress. :D yay progress !!!
My Egg Ramen Noodles
My friend started this event on FB that for 1 week you improve on yourself and try 100% on everything you do so this is me kind of improving on myself. I am 20 years old and these are skills I need to learn to survive out in the world lol Especially for when my bf and rents aren't around. So I'm going to put extra effort into my life for a week and see where that gets me.

Time To Get It Together
I am twenty years old and I didn't graduate high school. To this day I still dont have any sort of diploma or g.e.d. so i decided to finally get off my arse and try to get it. This was a little harder than I had predicted. The first thing I had an issue with was trying to find someplace to actually take the test. Whenever I called schools to find out more information, they always tell me that noone is in to help me... EVER. Even with me calling at different times so I finally just say fooey. I started looking at technical schools to take the test and found one about a 30 min drive from where I live so now I have a place to take it. My advice for others in the same predicament, just keep looking for the testing site. I started just by typing in google, G.E.D. in Florida (where i am located) and started from there. I will say that Florida's websites for G.E.D. are not the best at all. It was frusrating to find sites that DIDN'T look like scams. I have learned in my seaching that you CANNOT take the test online so ALL those sites are scams.
Fool me Once Shame on you, Fool me Twice Shame on Me
I first had tried "the stepping stones school" online and gave them my debit card number and they sent me my first packet. how they work is you fill out 6 packets at home and take the test and send it back and they send you a diploma (each packet is about $45). I am grateful I only sent for one at a time because when I sent it back, thats the last I ever heard from them. I emailed them with no luck and it was just frustrating to lose $45 that way but you learn from your mistakes.
Your Brain Memory Archives Are At 0%
I never realized how much of what I learned I would forget but lordy, if you dont use it, you will lose it. I have been taking practice tests online at 4tests.com and its kinda of making me think in a way I haven't for awhile so I've decided to kick it up a notch and am using a G.E.D. study guide book at home so I can get enough practice. Since they charge to take the test, It gives me a little more push to do really well so I dont lose money in this. (well anymore money)
Bigger And Better Things?
my current goal is to take the test one month from now and then enroll into college and start working on getting a degree in something though im not entirely sure what yet. I have a few ideas but im hoping everything works out okay (:
