I can't believe it's been so long since I've updated. I used to be obsessed with this thing and now I barely remember it exists.

Just got home a few hours ago from a weekend in DC. My dad was inducted into the American College of Radiology as a Fellow. Translation: it's a REALLY big deal...out of all of the radiologists, radiation oncologists, and medical nuclear physicists, only 10% have been given the honor of "fellow". I am SO proud of him, it's so amazing to have a father so accomplished. It really makes me re-evaluate where my life is going. This weekend was great also for the fact that I got to hang out with Amanda. She met up with us on Friday and pretty much hung out for the whole weekend, which was so awesome. I was sad to see her leave Sunday night, but I think that will always happen. I never want the ones I'm close with to go. We did the touristy things, like monuments and museums but it was all fun. My all time favorite is still the FDR memorial.

Overall, life it okay at the moment. Work is almost done for the year, which is so weird to say. I can't believe I'm going to be finishing up with my 3rd year at Ford. Time absolutely has FLEW by. It's been so much fun, but at the same time I'm starting to feel like I don't know what else I can do there. I'm starting to get stuck. I think that might be the theme of the day actually; being stuck. I stepped off my flight today from DC and have never in my life felt more out of place. I don't feel like I fit here anymore, and really, I don't think this is where I'm supposed to be. The problem is, I don't know where else I can go because nothing seems to feel right. 

I attempted to retake Organic Chem this semester, and really, I don't think I could have cared less. If you know anything about Organic Chem or have heard of the class, you know this is not one you can blow off. Most colleges say it's pretty much one of the hardest courses they offer, and yet I couldn't bring myself to give a shit. It is absolutely a class I need for PA school, and still, nothing. I don't know what my problem is, it's not like I've never had a packed schedule before.

On the one hand I feel extremely apathetic about my life and situation, on the other it makes me want to burst into tears because I don't want to do this anymore. I don't want to be overweight. I don't want to be alone. I don't want to be mediocre. I don't want to be broke. The only really cool thing I've done in my life is move to California for my internship, and really, as the years go on and that gets further behind, it becomes less impressive.

I'm really starting to think if there is someone for me out there, he's not here. He's not in Michigan, and if he is, I am certainly not going to meet him hanging with the crew I roll with now. I want to meet someone in medicine. I want to meet someone who inspires me. I want to meet someone who wants to get out of here for a while. I want to meet someone who can handle me and not just disappear. I feel like everyone around me is in a relationship and it makes me want to throw up I'm so jealous. Every other day I hear about people getting married or having children and it pushes my self esteem right through the floor. What am I doing wrong?? What's wrong with me that no one wants to be with me? The one fledgling relationship I just had crashed and burned so bad it made my heart hurt. I am SO tired of being alone. I am so tired of trying to make myself interested in Mr. Right Now.

I don't know what to do or where to go from here. I am absolutely stuck.

So Danny wrote me back!? And he was really nice!? I mean, I guess I wasn't expecting him to be an ass, but I've found if you expect the worst, your chances of being let down reduce greatly. His response was really enthusiastic and he seemed genuinely happy I contacted him. At the end of the day, is the most I can ask for. He was curious about where and when I was moving, asked about the family, and stated more than once it was really great to hear from me, and at the end threw out a proposition to hang out. My gut reaction is that he only threw that out because he thinks I'm moving back to California or something. Who knows, maybe he'll still want to grab lunch even though I'm sticking around here.Over all, I think I can count this whole thing as a success :)

He also mentioned too that he is engaged. I mean, I know bradmblings had given me the heads up about this, and that did cushion the blow a little, but still, only a little. I'm happy for him, I really am, I just have to get used to the idea that the ones we let go actually go. Again, part of life no one tells you about :)

So I wrote him back, answering his questions about my moving situation, the fam, asked about his fam, you know the usual small talk with someone you haven't seen in years. 

At the end of the day, I am so happy I did this. I know I've said this a million times, but I think it's worth repeating. Life is too short. Tomorrow is not a given.

As cheesy as this sounds, I think John Mayer is right...

Take all of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all of your so-called problems,
Better put 'em in quotations

Say what you need to say [x8]

Walking like a one man army
Fighting with the shadows in your head
Living out the same old moment
Knowing you'd be better off instead,
If you could only ...

Say what you need to say [x8]

Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for giving over
You'd better know that in the end
Its better to say too much
Then never say what you need to say again

Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open

Say what you need to say [x24]

I agree with bradmblings , LJ is definitely a habit that it hard to kick. I am not nearly as obsessed with it as I was in my college years, but there is still something about it that keeps pulling me back. Even though it has come back to bite me in the ass more than once, I love the fact that I can mentally spew my anger and frustrations without callous or judgment. At least, not initially ;)

Let's see, what's new in the world of Amanda...

Well, I am officially done with my 3rd football season at the high school, and what a long season it was. I will be very sad not to see the coaches and kids everyday, but holy lord did we have our fill of injuries. It was the year of the knee, that, if anything, was for certain. I think Jay got as sick of seeing me as I was of telling him the litany of kids that were out for the week. But we made it though, kicking and screaming some days :) Soccer ended more abruptly than anyone expected, and I have to say I was truly bummed for about 2 days after their unexpected departure in districts. It just goes to prove that you can paint the town in the regular season, but come playoffs, all bets are off. In a week or so we start in with the winter sports, which means all basketball, all the time, lol. My saving grace is wrestling, which has come to be one of my favorite sports. I love that the intensity and outlook of the match can change in an instant, and you only have 9 minutes to prove your worth. Should be a really fun season, and as usual, I'm still head over heels in love with my job. I'm still convinced I have one of the best jobs in the world :) A week from today I plan on signing up for another pre-req for PA school. Hopefully, by this time next year I will have all of my applications done and sent in. I have my list narrowed down to 6 schools, so I'm praying one of them is desperate enough to take me  ;)

In 4 days I will be moving!! My friend Sean and I have bought a house in Ferndale and I could not be more excited about it! It's been a long time coming; we have been waiting to close for about 2 months. This past Friday it finally happened, and in a few short days I will be out of this apartment and into the new house. It will be a longer drive to work, but in better proximity to everything else in my life. Suffice it to say, I will be 20 minutes from EVERYTHING, which is awesome. The only part that bums me out is that I finally feel like I know where everything is and am comfortable with this side of town and now I'm moving, lol. Now I get to learn the Ferndale/Royal Oak area, which I think is going to be fun too.

The other bit of news I have, and by news I mean not even 15 minutes old is that I finally did it. I e-mailed Danny. I'm not going to lie, it took me a good 5 minutes to work up the courage to hit the send button. It was a short, breezy letter and in the end, I couldn't think of a good reason why not. The impetus for this, other than my constant pondering over the past few years, was coming across a box of things from my room at my parents house. In it was my entire adolescence and a the tail end of my high school career, he, bradmblings , Andy, and Steve were a huge part of my life. Pictures and letters littered the box and for a while I sat mesmerized by my past life.  Life is too short. At the end of the day, I miss my friend. I don't know if he'll write me back, or even read it, but I hope he does. We have to release that death grip on the base of the tree and go out a limb sometimes I guess :)

Hey what do ya know, an entry that isn't doom and gloom...I guess I'm movin' up in the world :)

  In 2 days I will be 24.

   The reality of this makes me think a lot about the past year and what the hell I've done with my life. The majority of it was spent with Kevin, which I have to say, some days I miss so much it hurts. I went out to lunch with him last Friday, against the howlings of ALL of my friends. On the one hand, I understood their position for why I shouldn't go, but on the other, I don't think one of them has had an amicable break up to relate this to, so I had to do this one on my own. I think that was the most nervous I have been in MONTHS. This is the first time I have had an actual face to face conversation with him since December. Just as I expected, we were both nervous, but within 10 minutes, we got right back into our ebb and flow. There were some things about being there with him that made my heart hurt, and others that reminded me how far I've come. Overall, I just miss HIM. I miss the comfortable aura of our relationship, but I guess that's probably normal when you see an ex you don't hate. After we left lunch, he sent me a text, which made me smile. It's nice to see that some things never change. Even when we got into screaming arguments, he would always text me after we talked. Out of all of the guys I have dated or been interested in, he is the one person I am positive will always show up, and I don't think I will ever get over being in awe of that. Anyway, in the message he said that it was really nice to see me and hopefully we don't have to wait so long next time to get together. I wrote back that I agreed, and that we should do it again sometime. I swear sometimes I feel like guys I am interested in has ESP. I say this because the weekend before we hung out I couldn't get him out of my head. Sean and I went to go see Stop Loss, and let me tell you, don't go see it if you have to be happy after. It was extremely well done, but it brought up a lot of feelings I haven't thought about in about 2 years. Anyway, my point is, after seeing this, and being in the state I was in, I had to use all of my willpower to not drive over to his house, knock on his door and ask him to cuddle with me on the couch until I felt better. Then, lo and behold, he texts me out of nowhere 2 days later. Yikes.

  In some ways I feel like I've taken 2 steps forward and 4 steps back. I'm starting to understand more of what I look for in a relationship, but it doesn't make it any easier. I've found that a requirement of mine is not only to be attractive and have a personality I click with, but for me to fall for you, you have to obscenely flirt with me. I have A LOT of male friends. I used to use them as an excuse for why I don't pick up on subtle flirting, but now it's just a supporting statement to the fact that I enjoy flirting like none other. It makes me feel alive and for someone who has never done drugs more potent than alcohol, I can say it's my equivalent to getting a high. Unfortunately, when this fades with someone I will actively look for someone to replace it, which I'm not proud of. I wish there were a way to explain my addiction to it without sounding like a terrible person. Another requirement of mine is to be quite thin and athletic. I never thought I cared about body size, but if a guy has any sort of excessive chub, it's a no go. It's weird because I'm not looking to win any body competitions soon, but maybe subconsciously, what turns me off about them is actually a projection of how I feel about me? WHOA, too deep.The 4 steps back refers to my tendency to revert to situations I shouldn't be in anymore. After Kevin, I thought the bar had been raised and that I would no longer accept guys who wouldn't call me back etc, yet here I am, pining over someone if I were to rationally face, I don't think has any interest in me more than friends with benefits.

   Over the last 4 months, I have gone on more dates than I have in my whole life, and still here I sit, single as ever.  Sure, there have been one or two I could have spent some time on, but either I or they didn't feel the same. I've also found too that the theme of the game is "how long ago did YOU get out of a long term relationship?". This is shit no one tells you about growing up. No one mentions the fact that yes, you will find men who will seem absolutely perfect for you, but the timing is off. This happens because either A) because of the long term relationship they were just in, they have no desire to jump back into another one and want the single life or B) are clearly not over their ex. I apparently am talented enough to find guys who qualify for all of the above. I see so many of my friends in great relationships and I just want that again. I'm terrified I won't find it. Ever. Rationally, I hope that's not true, but a girl can only experience so many "no's" and not have it effect her self esteem. All though I never had the desire to be married in my early 20's, I absolutely would love it if it happened by the time I'm 30. I'm almost halfway there and I've got nothin'.

  As far as work is concerned, everything has gone really well. I'm still absolutely in love with my job, but I feel like some days I am so lazy. It's not like everyday is overly taxing, but I find myself looking at the clock, waiting to go home. I need to go to some seminars too to brush up on my skills. Add that to the list I guess.

  Classes are going well, I can almost say I really enjoyed this one. I say almost because the professor makes me want to punch her in the face just about every other class. I am one of the 4 or 5 students that are not first timers, yet she still treats me like a delinquent. Overall, it's nice that she cares enough to notice when I miss a class or two, but to pass judgment and make me feel like an ass is uncalled for. If class is technically not mandatory and I miss a few for work and other reasons, that is my business. This isn't high school anymore. She needs to save her overbearing mom tendencies for someone else.

  As far as this summer goes, the majority of it is going to be spent studying my ass off. I signed up for Organic Chemistry and I'm scared shitless to say the least. In the past, I have pushed procrastination to new levels because I am so lazy. I think it's partially because I would much rather be doing something fun, and partially because I shut down when I get overwhelmed. For as much money as I am spending on this class I'm praying I will get some inspiration to not blow it. Taking this class is also taking one more step towards applying for PA school. It's official, the ruts in which I have been dragging my feet in this process are going to start to be confused with the Grand Canyon. The reality is I don't want to leave my job. I LOVE my kids, the parents, the coaches, the whole shebang. I'm comfortable there and some days I swear they think I walk on water because I show up. The thought of having to pick up and start over again makes me want to burst into tears. I think at the heart of it, I don't want to lose the friends I have made. Whenever I leave somewhere, it seems the friendships don't follow, and it hurts. A lot. Logically I know that living at this salary for the rest of my life is not an option, but I guess I'm doubtful I will love being a PA as much as I love this job. Also, I know it's stupid too, but I don't want anyone to take my place. I know it has to happen, but with the reception I received, I don't want to be booted off of my couch, you know? It's probably pretty immature of me, but it is what it is.

  This weekend should be interesting to say the least. I have thrown together a make shift birthday party for myself and the more people that confirm they are coming, the more nervous I get. I've never had a large group of friends before, and having all of my small groups come together on one night, and all for me, is kinda stressful. I know it's ridiculous, but at the same time I feel like it's going to absolutely suck. I'm scared no one will get along or talk to each other. I think people are fooled by how friendly I can be, but overall, I'm not that social of a person. To this day I am still floored that all of my classmates that were of age, came to my 21st birthday, and that was 3 years ago.

  I think over the next two days I need to make some goals for myself so I don't let another year slip by with what seems like not much to show for it.

SO I've been doing a lot of thinking lately. I've decided as a whole, I don't like where my personal life is going. In the past few weeks I've made some pretty bad decisions, and I'm making a conscious choice to change directions. One of the things I am not proud of is that I am TERRIBLE at keeping up with friends. There are more people than I would care to admit I don't talk to anymore, and none of which were because of a falling out. Usually, I would say that people walk into and out of your life for a reason, and while they are there, learn as much as you can before they are on their way. I'd be interested to see if any of these people would be consider making a second round.

Of everyone that comes to mind, I think my roommates will be the easiest to get back in touch with. The one person I wouldn't have a clue even know to start with would be Danny. After looking through my old entries, apparently this is something I've been thinking about for almost a year and have obviously been too much of a chicken shit to do anything about. My biggest dilemma is what in the world would I say!? Thanks to bradmblings, I know he is engaged. I am so glad I heard it from him first. Let me be clear, I'm not trying to rock the boat, I just miss my friend. A lot. I guess the reality is, I don't even know if he still uses the e-mail address I have for him or if he'd even respond.

Help?

Well, I was right, he walked away. He's not ready to date, and everything was moving too fast too soon. I can't say I was surprised by this, but I am bummed. I think I could have really fallen for this guy. He did say that he thought I was really awesome and that he liked me a lot, but that's so cliche I don't even know what to say about it. I have to say, I am very impressed and he gets major points for being a man by calling and telling me all of this. He was very respectful and honest, which I always appreciate.

I hate that I'm always freaking RIGHT about this shit. Seriously, out of everything in this world I can have a 6th sense about, THIS IS IT!? Fuck! Oh well, guess it's back to being a party of one.

In other news, I need to figure out how to motivate myself to get off of my ass. Two of my friends and I have formed our own running club, and we meet once a week. I'm going to be honest here, I haven't run or done anything athletic since our run last week. I had all of these grand plans to go check out Lifetime Fitness, starting running on my own, etc. NOTHING. I think I need a workout buddy, but I don't know who. Maybe by going to Lifetime I'll find one!? Yikes.

SO I did it. It's done, Kevin and I are officially over. To be honest, the conversation in which this was decided was probably one of the best we've had in a really long time. He wrote me this letter and put it in my Christmas present pretty much expressing his undying love and asking to get back together. After much thought and contemplation, I just couldn't do it. This past month, all though it sucked not having him around, was actually fine. He had asked me to call him after I read the letter, and we played phone tag for a few days. I was dreading it because every other talk we've had sucked and made me feel guilty and cry. Thankfully, this one did not. I felt like I was talking to a long lost friend, and it was GREAT. We were laughing and teasing each other, and when the letter finally came up, I told him it really wasn't something I felt I should do, get back together with him. He said "okay, that's cool. To be honest with you, I've actually been okay these past few weeks." I think that's what I needed to hear the most. We didn't break up because he was an ass and I hated him, we broke up because we just weren't meshing anymore, so the thought that he wasn't okay broke my heart. We ended the conversation wishing luck to each other with future projects and agreed that if we saw one another out and about that it was necessary to say hi. I think on some level we can be friends, and I LOVE THAT. I don't like it when people are upset with me, and even less when people don't like me, so coming out of this knowing that we're still friends is the best possible.

I was so excited about this outcome because it was going to set the tone for the rest of my day, which included a date. Yeah, I went on a date, and I had a REALLY good time! We went and grabbed dinner, and then went to go see I Am Legend, which was AWESOME. He went to the CIA for culinary school, then went to State for his hospitality degree. Most recently passed his sommelier's exam a few months ago and bought a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house in Royal Oak. And he's only 24. He's really cute, funny, sarcastic and extremely friendly and talkative. I met him through my cousin literally the day before, he's her roommate, and I felt like I'd known him for months. Needless to say, I'm pretty excited about hanging out with him again!

I thought about the timing with this and did a little introspection, and honestly, I do not think this is a rebound thing, which is exciting. I have done that before, and it doesn't feel like that this time. I know how it looks, but I'm not a relationship jumper. Good lord after Danny I didn't date anyone seriously until Kevin. Sure, I become interested in people and maybe it would last a few weeks, but never an actual relationship. It's exciting with this guy that so far he seems really respectable. I'm trying really hard not to get too excited about this.

I can't believe we're almost done with 2007. In some respects, it seems like it just began, and in others it's been the longest year I've had in a while.

Kevin and I broke up. 4 days after my last entry actually. I won't go into the gory details, because really, I'm sick of talking about it, but it was amicable for the most part. The bottom line was that he was an unhappy person and I couldn't handle it anymore, coupled with the fact he never went over and above what was asked of him. He always called and showed up when he was supposed to, but sometimes it was like pulling teeth for conversation. He's been trying really hard since we ended things to show me that what I saw of him is not who he really is, like sending me roses to work, sending cards and such but I'm still skeptical. We were together for 8 months, 6 of which were really awesome and SO much fun, but I think after a while people just are who they are. He is a really sweet, amazing guy, but I don't know how much change can actually happen.

For the most part, I've actually been okay. It's been easier than I thought it was going to be, but I think that's because I was pretty apathetic about it when the break up finally happened.I just don't think about it, which I think makes it easier too. I remember what seems like a million years ago that I was still hanging out with the country club guys, and Danny ended things with this really sweet girl that he had been dating for like 3 years. He and I talked about it and I couldn't understand how he was so okay with it. Now I get it. It's not that he didn't love her or that everything was a lie, he just dealt with the grieving process while the breakup was evolving. And now I don't know what to think.

Speaking of Danny, I've been thinking a lot about him lately, which is odd because he hadn't crossed my mind in almost a year before this. I've decided I really miss him. At least I miss the Danny I knew then, who knows what he's like now or even what he's doing. Before he and I dated he was one of my best friends. The more I think about it, our dating was just insanely terrible timing. I had just received notice from Josh that things were over for good, and the next day Danny was telling me he wanted to date me. I was in a tailspin to say the least. The whole ride home tonight I had it in my head I was going to e-mail him and try to establish contact again, but now I'm not so sure. With the shit he put Brad through a while back I don't even know if he's still the same person. I heard a rumor a while back that he had broken up with his girlfriend, which, if it's still true, would make this a lot easier. Issue #2 I'm unsure about.

In other news, I'm just about done making an effort with Josh. He and I have had this insane flirty relationship for years, that I thought at one point might go somewhere further that where we were. This was all smashed to pieces when he abruptly stopped talking to me. We had made plans to grab lunch while he was home and my phone is still sitting silently. Seriously I think it's something with the name, wtf. I'm over it.

Christmas and the holidays turned out really well. Better than I expected to be honest. Over the past few years I've decided I don't really like Christmas. Everyone gets all hyped up about getting people the "perfect thing" when in reality, it might be something they will never use or regift anyway. I made out really well this year, and am really thankful for it. My parents got me a new ski jacket and ski pants, which I'm super excited about. One of my goals this year is to learn how to snowboard. I've been skiing from the age of 5, but snowboarding is something I've never tried. Even if I hate it, I can at least have a tale to tell. I also got from my parents a North Face PolarTec, which I could not be more excited about. I've wanted one of these things for YEARS because it's wind resistant and let's me leave the house without a massive jacket. I enjoy cute jackets, but hate carrying them around in malls and driving in them. My sister and Chris got me some really cute clothes from The Limited, which I'm a huge fan of, and also a mojito set that I can't wait to break out at the first sign of summer. Christmas Day at my Grandma's was more fun this year than I can remember it being in about 10 years. For a while, I was the only representative from my generation in a sea of my mom's brothers, sister and spouses. We were drinking like it was going out of style and having a blast. I can't remember the last time I had such great conversations with my aunts and uncles. It's times like this that I am so thankful I have such a great family. Still, I think it's going to be a requirement from now on that I'm buzzed for that day :o)

Work is still going really well. Winter season started a little earlier this year, which I could not be more thankful for. Last year, they had tryouts in November, which we did again, but unlike this year had practice for A MONTH. This year, we started games 2 weeks after tryouts and I am so stoked. I do enjoy days where we just have practice, but I like watching games a lot more. We hosted the Falcon Invitational for wrestling in the beginning of December and I am happy to report we didn't have any major injuries. How we escaped with that, I will never know. This season is a little slower than the fall, but still very busy because we're all in one concentrated area. Two points for being warm all winter :o)

I know I said this last year, but seriously this year I've decided I want to obtain the body I've always wanted. I know it's going to be a lot of work, but I think it's something that would really boost my self confidence. I'm going to start by running again, and then lifting. I haven't decided if I want to join something like Lifetime Fitness or just use the equipment that I have available at the high school. I think it all depends on what I want out of it. Lifetime would be able to offer fitness classes like spinning, kickboxing, and maybe even a boot camp. I do better in class situations like that because I can't wuss out and it feels like the time goes by faster. Also, I won't need a spotter for most of those things. Maybe too in those classes I can make some new friends.

I've also decided to take a Psychology course this semester instead of yet another Chemistry because I think I need a break. Also, I need to retake this class for a better grade for PA school so it all works out. In this time, because I'm pretty sure this course isn't going to be as grueling as the last one, I want to study for my CSCS exam. CSCS stands for Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, which is the gold standard in strength and conditioning. I really enjoyed doing this during the summer and it would definitely be something beneficial to have for my profession. There is a lot of studying to do for it, but I think the test is in April so I would have some time.

Whew! So that's what's been going on in my life lately. I think the title says it all, I'm really unsure about a few things, which unfortunately is casting a shadow over everything else. All in all, it was one hell of a year :o) Comments are always lovely :o)

Yup, still alive.

I can't believe how fast this year has flown by, is it seriously already the middle of November?

Let's see, what's new with me...well, the fall season sports went really well. I was so happy to be back in August and it flew by too fast. Football didn't do as well as we would have liked, but the upshoot was all of our games were decent, weatherwise. I had a lot of injuries this year, but nothing I couldn't handle. Soccer was a blast again, but we all knew that was coming. Volleyball made their debut in the fall season since the law changed, and I think that transition went over really well. As usual, I'm still crazy about my kids and coaches, they are all so awesome. It's great to say I love going to work everyday.

Things with Kevin are still going, albeit lately not as well as I would like. We had a really great summer but now that we're both in our crazy seasons, things are a little tougher.

I could not be more excited that Thanksgiving is next week! It is by far my favorite holiday because it doesn't have half the hype of Christmas, but with all the same people have 3 times the fun. In recent years it has become a 3 day event: Amanda and I go to Jackson to hang out at Jeff's bar, Thanksgiving back at my house, then shopping the next morning :o) Sure, it's a holiday, so there is always a little stress, but not anything compared to Christmas. The whole point is to watch football, eat a fnatastic meal and just hang out, how could I not love it?


More updates later, I have to go to work :o)
