This and That

I've been randomly going around and reading different people's blogs. I've read blogs for people that have read mine and other random blogs that I have come across.

I noticed that some people read other people's blogs and then criticize them on their own blogs. What gives other people the right to think that they can take other peoples issues, concerns, sadness, hardships, etc. and just trivialize them and critique them? Don't these people have lives or better things to do with their time? I know that I sure do.

My main point is that these blogs belong to the people that write them and they have every right to write about whatever the hell they want without having other people judge them. No one has the right to trivialize other people's lives. I read a blog by a woman who just had her third miscarriage in a row. This poor woman, I can't even imagine what she's going through and my heart broke for her. Yes, she chose to write about something sad, some people would have you believe that she's looking for attention, I just think that she is trying to deal with her pain.

I think that if you don't like what someone has to say on their blog, then don't read it. Just mind your own business, or get a life.

Ok, that's my rant for today. Other than that, I'm glad that it's Friday. This week ended a lot better than it started and I'm looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend, well aside from my homework.

Mr. NotSoWonderful

Ok, I just got a newsflash from a friend of mine that actually met Mr. Wonderful. Turns out he's not wonderful. He looks nothing like his pictures, he's limp and he's vague and secretive. Also, he's just looking for the one night stand.

I too have found him vague and secretive and getting information out of him is like pulling teeth. I think that I'm calling the whole thing off now. Why waste my time?

Oh and Todd Jumper if you're reading this, I do have pictures, lots of them and I'm adorable.

Anyway, I just thought that I would let all of you know that I'm back to the drawing board on the man front.

Fetal position, here I come.

Yet Another Update

Well it hasn't even been a week and I have another update.

The fabulouso guy hopes to be ending his weekend project this weekend, which means that I will get to meet him the weekend after that. His idea was to continue to speak and get to know one another and then meet when our schedules have cleared up. I am still very much interested in meeting him and one more week should be fine.

So, not only did I bite my tongue this week and make it bleed, but I also bit my cheek, repeatedly and made it bleed as well. Oh yeah and a guy I work with sailed a piece of paper over the cube wall at me and I got a nice big papercut across my nose. So it's been quite the fun week and it's not over yet.

I just want to curl up in a little ball and sleep until my luck changes.

Ok, well that's enough complaining for one evening. Maybe I just won't blog again until I have good news.

I'm now in my second week of class and only 8 more weeks to go. So far so good. Then only 10 more classes to go until I get my MBA. That is of course unless I decide to pursue my MBE. I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up. Woo hoo!!

So I'm in the second week of class, I have this super great guy (so he seems) that is dying to meet me. Don't get me wrong, I'm dying to meet him too. Unfortunately, I don't know when that will be. I now have to work at least 50 hours a week under the threat of being replaced. I have a bad feeling that I'm going to be worked like a dog and then replaced anyway. Oh well, such is life right?

Also, tonight I bit down onto my tongue and made it bleed. That was most unpleasant. Luckily, I think that the tongue heals fast. It's already throbbing less. However, I see a nice big bite mark on the edge of my tongue.

The other great thing that happened, my doberman took a nice fall off the back steps and landed completely out on his side. He let out a cry that made me sick to my stomach. Fortunately, after I helped him up, he seemed ok. He didn't cry out when I rubbed his sides and then he ate like a horse. So I guess he is ok.

I think that is it for now. I've got a lot to keep me busy and stressed out. So, how is everyone else doing?

Back to School Rack

About 3 years ago, I decided that I was going to go back to school and get my MBA. I figured why not, I am single, I have no life and my work will reimburse me. So why not.

So, I started taking classes. I took 3 classes and then I had to stop because my job relocated and I had to move to another state and basically start my life over. So I decided to take a little break from Grad school while I got settled. Now, two years later, I am starting back up again. Currently my GPA is 3.77, I really hope that I can keep it up.

My new class started yesterday and I just got my book today. There is reading every week and participation in forum discussions and weekly assignments, which means that my time online will be a little more sparse and my blog posts may be few and far between.

I'm actually excited to start classes again. My mom keeps telling me how proud of me she is for getting off my butt and taking classes again. While I'm doing this strictly for me, it's nice to hear that from her.

I will be sure to let you all know how my class is going and how I do as far as my grades go when the class ends. The class ends December 9. Wish me luck!!!

Bad News

I had to cancel my date for tonight. Thank you all very much for your warm and wonderful wishes. Unfortunately, I had a bad breakout of hives and an asthma attack that really worked me over.

Anyway, the guy is sweet and wonderful and he totally understood. He just wanted to know if I was ok. We are going to reschedule for another time.

Such a bummer I know, but alas, if it was meant to be it will work out. Right?

Deep Thoughts Part 2

While I still haven't met the perfect man from my previous post, I have discovered that we're not of the same religion. While I was hoping to meet someone of the same faith, I am accepting of this flaw.

I like to call his not being the same religion a flaw, even though deep down I know it's not. The reason that I want to call it a flaw is because he seems perfect for me in so many ways and I feel as though I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop. I know that this isn't how I should feel or what I should be thinking, so I decided to make his not being of the same religion his flaw. However, this flaw, unlike others, I can live with and don't forsee it as being a problem.

There are several flaws that I refuse to accept, for example, someone who is not a pet person, that is a huge flaw and I won't even respond to someone who doesn't like pets. Come on, who doesn't like pets? What else don't they like, children??

Anyway, I know that no one is perfect, well no one except for me and my friends, so I am willing to accept this man and his religious flaw. Anyway, I will keep you updated...I think that the big day is only two days away!!

More Deep Thoughts By Rack McRacken

So, I was sitting on my couch watching Seinfeld and rubbing my dogs' bellies with my feet when I started thinking. Now, since this is something that I rarely do, I started getting philosophical on myself.

So, what had me so deep in thought you ask? Well, I was thinking about the perfect man, and does he really exist. And by perfect man, I don't mean one that would be perfect by the entire world's standards, I mean perfect for me.

I've been talking, texting and emailing this guy from that damned online dating site. He seems perfect. He's sweet, he's funny, he calls when he says he's going to. He told me that even though he has no spare time he would make sure that I received plenty of his time as I would be someone that is important to him. He loves his mom and he has no problem telling everyone even if it makes him sound less than straight. She has cancer and he drives all the way back home as often as he can to see her and help her around the house and take her to lunch. She's about 5.5 hours away.

Today I was sitting at my desk and mr. wonderful sent me a text message that just said he can't wait to meet me. So, being the ever jokester that I am. I texted him back and said "Did you tell your mom that you may have met the woman of your dreams?" His response, as I know you're dying to know what it was, "And all my friends too." Isn't that just the sweetest?

Anyway, I am so afraid to get my hopes up yet again, as I have had them repeatedly thrown on the ground and trampled right in front of my very eyes. Oh yeah, he loves dogs too.

I know by now you're all thinking why haven't I married this guy yet, right? Well, there is the little formality of meeting him...but I can't wait. If he's half as wonderful in person as he is over the phone then Vegas here I come!! Just kidding.

All of this brings me back to the reason I started this post. Is there a perfect someone for everyone and how many people actually meet their perfect someone? Could this be mine? The answer is, I don't know. But I think that I'm going to give it a shot and see what happens. I mean, what's the worst thing that could happen? I go out for a few hours, have a nice dinner with someone and we each go our separate ways. But then on the other hand.......I don't dare to say it outloud!!

But in case, no matter what happens, I will keep you posted. I know that each and every one of you will be sitting on the edges of your seats biting your nails waiting to find out what happens. All I can say is, I think Friday is when I'm meeting him, so if you can hang on until then. Come on, it's nothing, it's a work week!!
