I just returned from a long weekend in Salem, MA with friends. The trip was excellent, the effort required to get on the fucking plane for the flight home was not excellent, in fact it was not in the near vicinity of excellent.

I will write a more detailed explanation of this little rant at a later time, but for now let me just say....FUCK ORBITZ AND THE HORSE THEY RODE IN ON!

Things I have done

For better or worse, here are some things I have done that I think have had some sort of lasting impact on who I am and how I live my life:

Broke bones
Gave birth, once to a daughter and then once to two sons, at one time
Got married
Loved someone until it caused me physical pain
Allow a boyfriend hit me, more than once
Freed myself from said boyfriend
Traveled to Costa Rica
Traveled to the Bahamas
Traveled to the western U.S. in my Jeep Cherokee with my man and my little girl
Traveled to many other places in the U.S.
Buried my 24 year old cousin
Buried all of my grandparents
Visited Niagra Falls
Stood on the edge of the Grand Canyon
Carried several of these above mentioned coffins to their final resting places
Jumped off the roof of my parents' house with an umbrella, thinking I would fly
Taken LSD....many times
Smoked pot....even more times
Used cocaine...several times
Used heroin...just a few times
Had my heart broken
Crashed a multitude of dirtbikes, go-carts, and bicycles
Graduated from college with a Bachelors degree
Graduated from college with a Masters degree
Paid for all of that college myself
And worked the whole time I was going to school
Climbed many rocks, high into the air, with just a thin rope to save me if I fell
Ran the Peachtree Roadrace in Atlanta, GA
Let my guard down for some people
Decided I was not a Christian
Experienced real failures
Accepted that life comes as it is and I can't control everything

Last week

Last week I had an exam in my cartography class. It was a bitch of an exam, with loads of essay questions and this crazy instructor even required that we draw map projections, what the fuck? So, I took the exam and felt a little sick to my stomach when I handed it in. But, my raw score was 84 and the high raw score was 88. So he added a 15 point curve, which gives me.....A 99!!!!! Put that in your pipe and smoke it friends =)

The bike I covet

I want this bike. I want it right now. I must have it.

Or perhaps in blue?
