i'm still alive..........
hehehehehehe! I haven't been online much. I've been spending time with someone special!!!! I'm stopping there b/c I am paranoid that i'm gonna screw something up. :) I bought some cd's and shoes today. My thoughts are a bit crowded at the moment, i'm trying to sort so my typing may seem choppy. I went downtown this morning with my dad to checkout the housing for school. It's ok, i just feel like i'm gonna be so cut off from everything here. Not that i'd be so far away, but I guess i'm just stuck in a comfort zone. If my folks move while i'm in school I'd probably have to take it anyway, and buy that time it may be too late to apply for it, so I have to do it when i start my course i guess. Not unless they can assure me that they'd at least be here another year, and i could apply for it next summer, but I don't know if I can ask them about that for some reason. I don't want them to feel bad for finally wanting something they've wanted for so long. My head is swimming, i'm going to go rest.

Yack! What a tre shitty day at work!!!!!! Horrible. I woke up, "mega bitch", and it all backfired at work. The night ended up being not so bad. I went to the market with my mom. Then walking, so i felt muchles betta! I'm making healthy bran muffins tomorrow morning for my dad and I. He better eat one.

I haven't had much time to focus my thought on my entries lately. I've been thinking about lots of different things that were keeping my mind occupied. I'm going to go for now tho.

intellectual stimulance......
Hidy-ho! I've been running may ass off, but it's all good. I had to go to the Art Institute on friday to take my placement testing for the basic math and english courses I have to take in the program.

I did well in the english, but the math left alot to be desired. Sooooo, I have to take one additional class in the first semester, which was expected by yours truely. :) I went out last night with my friend Neil from work. I like him alot, he's so smart, considerate, and all the way around cool!

Today I worked, then went out for sushi with my sister. Yum yum! Now I'm going to go relax in a bath, possibly shave my legs (if i feel like it), then read some of the book Neil lent me. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*huggsandcaliforniaSushiRolls*~*~*~*~*~*~

Video, by India Arie
Video


Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I dont
Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I wont
Depend of how the wind blows I might even paint my toes
It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul


Im not the average girl from your video
And I aint built like a supermodel
But I learned to love myself unconditionally,
Because I am a queen

I not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what Im wearing I will always be
India.Arie


When I look in the mirror and the only one there is me
Every freckle on my face is where its suppose to be
And I know my creator didnt make no mistakes on me
My feet, my thighs, my Lips, my eyes, Im loving what I see




Am I less of a lady if I dont where panty hose
My momma said a lady aint what she wears but what she knows
But Ive drawn the conclusion, its all an illusion
Confusions the name of the game
A misconception, a vast deception,
Something got to change

Now dont be offended this is all my opinion
Aint nothing that Im saying law
This is a true confession
Of a life learned lesson
I was sent here to share with y'all
So get in when you fit in
Go on and shine
Clear your mind
Nows the time
Put your salt on the shelf
Go on and love yourself
Cause everythings gonna be alright




Keep your fancy drink, and your expensive minks
I dont need that to have a good time
Keep your expensive cars and your caviar
Alls I need is my guitar

Keep your crystal and your pistol
Id rather have a pretty piece of crystal
Dont need you silicone, I prefer my own
What god gave me is just fine

Another one of my friend Jason's poems, I'm so happy he shares with me!
look at the world theres so much hate
is this out sad fate
how did these wars come to be
who doesnt everybody see
we are all the same
how can people opinions be so lame
how is killing innocent people the right thing
what good does war bring
millions dead
billions strugling just to get bread
diseases sweep through nations.
while some countries suffer from starvation
and through this all
we have people being shot over a game of ball
riots caused by race
people being shot cause of the color of their face?
us as a human race is nothing but a disgrace


A woman I work with so helpfully informed me today that I look like I am putting back on some weight. I can't believe the gall of some people to say such things. They have no idea what they do. I hate it at that.

Cooooooome on metabolism, do I need to bribe ya with a cookie??
Geeezzzz, I just got back from going out walking tonight. It is such a beautiful night out, and walking is something i needed to start doing before I go away next month. I do my crunches, i lift my weights, but I almost forgot about the beauty of being outside and enjoying the air.

I'm go to Busch Gardens Williamsburg Virginia next month, and I can't wait to sample the micro- brewery.:) I'm going with my friend Marni and my cousin Amy, (I invited my cousin to keep me sane and b/c I weally weally wuv huuuuuur;)). It should be fun, I wanted to go away somewhere before I start school in July, so we kinda through this together.

I missed walking, great stress releaser!

I got written up at work the other day. I sold a fellow employee/minor/wasn't buying them for herself, but buying them for another minor who also is a fellow employee, cigarettes, and she was on the clock. I don't know this girl from a crumpled paper bag, and i was so busy ringing people up I didn't even look at her, let alone card her. So, after I ring her up, a supervisor, who was off the clock, remarked that I should have carded her. My reply, "oh shit", made it clear that it was an honest mistake.

I didn't know, however, that after I rang her up I was at liberty to take them back. So she turns around and says, "I am 18, Regina you know I'm 18 I told you before." Like I'd remember what she told me, but anyway..... I didn't know what to do so she just walked away. So I went into work the other day and I get called to the office. I had to sit through this ordeal with my manager and the Loss Prevention guy, becasue I broke a federal law.>:( (who wooda thunk it, pixiesticks the renegade!)

So basically, buy law, they were supposed to terminate this girl and I, and fine us $700 dollars, but b/c they figured it just slipped my mind, and they think I'm a good employee, they settled for writing us up. No biggie, but I wanted to squash this girls face under my wing! I was pissed b/c it was seriously an accident, and this chick knew what she was doing, and it made my blood boil. Then, on top of it, an off the clock office worker ratted us out. Like I knew I should've taken then back from her being that register isn't even my department, I was doing them the favor.

Now I just find it amusing. Not that i could've lost my job 2 months before I start school, Art school at that. Just that they took it so seriously, and I didn't even know what I did. Now I know to not work so fast and take more time to notice the merchandise, like retail's my life. ;)

It's been in the 80's here,a nd so nice. I have to go down to school on Friday to take my placement testing. who hoo. It's primarily english and math, and I cannot use a calculator. I have nooo prob with the English, it's the math that contributes to my testing anxiety. No Calculator! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! I'm trying to keep cool and not freak out over numbers on paper. I am bigger then the piece of paper! :)

Michelle is all down now b/c no one can go out tomorrow night for her birthday. I have work, and nobody else has any money, LOL. I'm not being mean, but she doesn't really fully acknowledge anyone else's, yet she gets down when nobody can join in her funkadelic little plans. She's my friend, and I care about her. She just needs to not be so spoiled and self centered.

Now i'm on my way to go sleep. I have a book this cool kid Neil, from my work, lent me to read. it's called, The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I can't wait to get started, but not tonight. I'm too sleepy. I'm gonna go snuggle with my cats. hehe I feel asleep watching dangerous Liaisons last night. I luv John Malkovich! woowoo! Adios!

Top o' the mornin' to ya!
I just got up, and my wash has just built up unbelievably! :**(. lol. I just downed this big glass of oj, i'm trying to lay off the java a little. I've been drinking soooo much of it in the mornings and before I go to bed that it can't be healthy. But I wuv it so muchles! I gotta run my check to the bank, and luckly enough, they have hours on saturdays. Only till 2, so I always get up and go in my pj's, b/c if I'm off on saturdays I like to sleep a bit. Everyone in the line looks at me like I'm crazy, like they've never seen pj's. I feel like yelling, "WHAT?! DO YOU ALL SLEEP NAKED!?" Honestly. I do this thing with my check to avoid standing in the line, it's called speedy teller. Ya put your check in the envelope they give ya, then ya fill out the front of it with all your checking info, then put it in the slot and they have to process it by the time their working day is over. Which is 2 on saturdays. hehehe SO I stole a bunch of their envelopes and i fill them out at home, so all I gotta do is double park(parking is insane there in the small, tight ass parking they provide) and run in in my pj's. I got it all figured out! LOL I went to see Josie and the pussycats the other night. It was cute like the comic, nothing to 4 star rave about. I'm supposed to go see Bridget Jones' Diary tonight. I don't like renee zellwiger, or how ever ya spell it. I really wanna see Blow, but, my friends don't really like my choices of movies. But i gotta run, throw in some wash and do my timed dash to the bank! ;) Toodles for now!

yay, happy spring!
the weather is so lovely! I haven't had a minute to come online, let alone update my journal. Between easter and work, etc. I've been running like crazy! Works ben not to bad. I have to go down to school next week for testing. AHHHHHHHH! I have testing anxiety, so I'm a little freaked. I just keep telling myself to not be afraid of a piece of paper. It's the math I hate, and i can't use a calculator, so I wonder if it would be acceptable to just tell them before i take it that I'm not going to pass it. ;) I'm going to Virginia the last week of may into june, I can't wait to get away. I gotta find room in my drawers to put new clothes away, then get rid of the old. oh the fun. Then I think i'll get together with michelle, haven't seen her in sometime. I don't want to lose touch with any of my friends, that's happened before and I hate that. I gotta go give them some pixie huggles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My, how the week has flown!
I honestly don't know where the week went! It's been so long since I last updated! I've been working like crazy. I slept at a friends house last night, we made drinks and chatted until 4am, it was quite lovely. I am so relaxed today I think I may just stay in at this point. I need sleep and huggles. I think I'll go harass my cats.

Sniffle sniffle, ahhhhhh pollen!
I luv Spring! I just wish my nose would stop running so I can enjoy it a bit more! :0~). I'm off today and tomorrow! Yay! I hope the weather stays just as lovely as it is now! :) I'm waiting for my sister to get out of the shower so we can hit the mall. hehe I bought this make up sealant stuff, and all it does is make a mess, so the lady at the counter said i could return it. Work was insane allllll freakin' weeeekend. My manager had off, I hope she had a fantastical birthday! As i suffered loudly, screaming at customers at work. I can't wait to start school, honestly. My friend Heather and I have begun speaking again, which is good b/c I was missing her. She lives in Florida now, so I may go visit her before I head to school in July. The weather has me in such a pleasant mood! Gonna go get ready to jet!

did somebody plant poppy's while i was asleep????
Whoa. I went to bed last night and didn't wake up for 12 hours. Damn. I hate sleeping that long, b/c now I'll be tired all day. My cat had a blast tho, he has someone to snuggle with this morning. I was supposed to be in work early, but they cut my hours. :( So I don't gotta go in until tonight. I am trying to kick the milk habit. I am leaning towards soy. I just had a bowl of cereal with non fat soy, and it was really good. Everyone is on my nerves, I think thats why I didn't get out of bed this morning. I haven't spoken to any of my friends, except Marni of course, which is fine. But I'm just starting to feel a little lonely. I can't wait for school to start. And for this box of cookies to be done so I can stop eating them. Cookies and bday cake, all over the house. One cannot stay on a diet this way. Oh well, more stomach crunches.......AB roller here I come!

Groove is in the heart............
Yesterday was my bday, and i turned 21!!! Everyone makes such a big deal out of 21, but I don't. My biggest thing was just being able to get into clubs and places that I couldn't normally get into before, not so much to get drunk. Although, it is quite lovely to be able to purchase a beer, and be allowed. That took some getting used to. I asked for a beer and she gave it to me, wow! My friend Marni came over and we ordered dinner, then my family and I had cake, then my sister took me to a club. Polly Esther's, and it was a really good time. More crowded then usual, but i guess when it's a pixie's birthday, everyone has to come out for a funkalicious time! The upstairs of the club is 80's inspired, pac-man, etc. The downstairs is the 70's. We stayed in the 80's majority of the time. I wore balck pants and a cute 70's halter top. It was warm in there so I'm glad I did. Got myself a beer, then it was time to Walk Like an Egyptian! Did a shot, then it was time to tell the like ditty of Jack and Diane, two american kids growin' up, in the heartland. I had a good time, reguardless of the fact that Marni and Nikki are the ones out of my group of friends who called me. I am most greatful for them, i know who my true friends are, but it's just hurtful that the ones i spend so much time with couldn't have even called me. I got an emailed card from Michelle, who I've known for almost 4 years now, gee, thanks. I don't care for material things, I care for a simple phone call, to hear a voice, and that is all. I guess it's time to clean house. it's just a bit depressing. I will not be used, and I will not stoop to their levels either. Nikki and Marni can be a bit annoying, but at least they give a shit, really. Javigo is going to let me buy him a beer if he ever comes to Philly! Yay! I pigged out today, Birthday cake, Tacos, and Ben and Jerry's. I am fasting this week. I gotta go finish up some wash now, that what i've done all day. I am watching the oscars now, bo0orrrring. ~*~*HugglesandTruePixielovin'andBenandJerry'sPhishFoodallaround*~*~

My cat is so bad I told him I'm making a cuisine out of him! I just got up and am sipping on tangerine juice, yummmmy! I'm going out to lunch with my sister today, i made plans with my sister and her b/f is coming too. Then we're going to the mall or something. I am finishing up my book, I've been so wrapped up in it, I can't wait to see what happens! Works been ok. I left a few minutes early yesterday becasue my gramma, aunt, and cousin cam eup for dinner. Being that I missed the dinner, (they saved it for me), I wanted to at least spend some time with them. Everytime we have a dinner or something, I make a late appearance a la work. I'm hanging in there. Gonna go get ready, we're going to a vegetarian chinese resturant. It's supposed to be good.

Sun then rain......
Past few days have been really nice, in the morning. Then bam! Rain hits! Go figure. I spent my day off really cool. I went to breakfast with my mom, then to the mall to buy stuff I didn't really need, then we got fruit smoothies. We just ran out for hot fresh bagels. I'm seriously thinking about going to Disney wrold again, before I start school. Possibly going somewhere. I wanna travel before I go b/c once I'm in school I will be preoccupied. Except my friends are broke, and who could possibly go with me would most likely be a pain in the ass the whole time. I don't wanna spend a vacation that way either. MY sister won't be able to go b/c her and her b/f are going to Vegas, so she'll be broke as well. I dunno, I still wanna go to Singapore....... I'll have to see how things work out, hopefully it'll work itself out. For now, I am off to workout a bit, then finish up a book. Toodles!

AHhhhhhhh!
I am so tired I am silly!

Work work work, all I do. I went bowling with some friends the other day, after spending the day walking a gigantic mall. I dunno what happened, but i somehow bruised the fronts of my legs. From there, bowling, got home around 4am. Then it was up for work! Then again today! who hoo. Tomorrow i'm off, but gotta be up early anyways, then to a hockey game at night with a friend. I don't really wanna go, but it would be mean to bail on her, so I gotta go. I'm gonna try to sneak a nap in somewhere. My cat was such a little punk last night. He knocked my cd tower of Tori cd's over looking for ponytail holders. They are all in order by release. He's not getting treats for a while! Work was good today, despite my lack of rest. I came home and had chinese, yum! Doing wash now, and i'm in the middle of a great book. I'm gonna keep the reading up tonight.

purr.......
My cat is being such trouble! All the toys he has and he'd rather play with dirty dishes! I just went to Barnes and Noble. I had a gigantic coffee, and I bought a new book. Stardust by Neil Gaimen. I had the opportunity to go out to a club, but I'm not really in the mood to get dressed up and have to be social, so I'd rather stay in and read. I also bought Go, so I'll probably watch that later too. I like being by myself sometimes. I am watching the new mtv 2, all the music videos. This channel is the only way mtv gets my viewing ratings. I don't watch much tv, so they aren't getting that much outta me.:) Jaded from Aerosmith is on now. I like this video. I like Joe Perry. >:) I was going to by this self help book, on women and the road to self acceptance. I sat down to read some of it, and it ended up being one of these:
"breathe in: I am proud of my body. Breathe out: it will not be the bearer of others guilt."
no thanks! I also got some hot spicy rice I'm gonna make later. yummers! My parents wanted me to go out to eat with them, lol. They are so cute. I gotta go pry my cat out of the sink now.:/

company employees that work over the phone
Why do they always put you on hold? Then forget about you for about 45 minutes?????? Then they get back on the phone, you give them hell, and they do it again? What makes them think they have a right to take that time away from our lives? I thought they were supposed to be helpful. If a customer came into my store, and I made them wait for me for that long, I wouldn't have a job. On the phone ya can't even ask to talk to a supervisor b/c they just put ya on hold again! This is a conspiracy, and we should all be blessed enough to do our work over the phone. Don't wanna help a customer? HANG UP ON THEM! PUT THEM ON HOLD FOR 45 MIN AND MAKE THEM LATE FOR WORK! ARG! Yes, I know they have other customers on their lines also, b/c thats what the recording always tells me when I am on HOLD!

ok, feeling better..... I went to the art institute yesterday for my interview, took my dad. It went really well, and them my pops and I went to the Hard Rock Cafe for lunch. Then we went to the Gallery , and I bought him a Frankenstein collectable doll. He loved it. Then I came home and went to the mall with Michelle. Later in the night, I eliminated my -whatever he was- from my life, and it felt marvelous. I slept likea rock all night. Today I'm off to work, nights, again. For now I'm gonna go try to call this number again, ;/. wish me luck!
