< / start rant >

So apparently KWOD 106.5 (the local "alternative" radio station in Sacramento) decided to cease being. Which is fine since I only listen to my mp3 player when in the car and use while on the interwebs. BUT, I had over 660,000 points in their "listener loyalty program" online with the hopes of wining tickets to concerts this summer (like I usually do). WTF!!!! Seriously! I want to punch someone or something! PS: I am tired and half asleep!

Sitting in traffic. Listening to Lil Jon on the mp3 player... Totally made my day. Skeet skeet skeet, mother fucker! I am such a dork.

Hotter then hell today. I hate summers in Sacramento.

I got my BOG waver from school. I will get back $290 of the $297 that I paid for Summer/ Fall tuition! Suck on that!

Good night.

I want a girl with extensions in her hair... Bamboo earrings, at least two pair///

Song of the Day: LL Cool J> Around the Way Girl

Oh my goodness. LL Cool J is the romantic poet of my generation. God bless him for such songs as 'Big Ole Butt' with such memorable lines like:

Laid her on the table and place my order
And gave her a tip much bigger than a quarter

I needed a laugh like that all day. Especially since it is finals week!

You wanna rumble in my jungle... I'll take you on///

Song of the Day: Robyn> Konichiwa Bitches
(are you sensing a theme so far?)

Dear YOU,

Everyday, I am reminded why I am the person who I am today. I am filled with anger. I know this. I acknowledge this. I am this. I wish I wasn't. I don't want to be an angry person. I like being happy. But, I don't feel happy when you (out of nowhere and for no apparent reason) decide to yell at me and belittle me. Why does this bother me so much? If I knew, I don't think I would be as angry as I am. I am pathetic for putting up with it. Maybe I do deserve it?! No, fuck that. I don't deserve that crap. You will have to understand the hard way, I suppose. It is only a matter of time. You think that I will tolerate this for much longer? Guess again. How can I respect someone who has no respect for anyone else? Soon. You will see.

-Angry Bear

British guys playing rugby... Brooklyn boys who wanna thug me///

Song of the Day: Fannypack> Hey Mami

Hello, Saturday!

I have been waiting for you for oh so long. What will I do with you today? Perhaps crochet... Watch a baseball game or 2... Work on those stupid papers for English... Maybe I should work on my garden? Or maybe do some cleaning in my crafting room? Decisions, decisions.

& to know me as hardly golden is to know me all wrong... They were///

Song of the Day: Band of Horses> The Funeral

I hate writing papers. Especially on poetry and novels. This is all.

Omg. The line at the kfc by work had the longest line i have seen at a fast food joint. Fuck that shit. Maybe friday.

Mother fountain or live or not at all///

Song of the Day: Massive Attack> Black Milk

Things I am looking forward to:

Summer and Fall classes. Here is what is on my plate for the next 2 semesters...

Summer 2009:

MATH 120 - Intermediate Algebra @ Sacramento City College. MTuWTh 615 to 845pm. 6/15/08 to 8/7/09. 5 units.
This course reviews and extends the concepts of elementary algebra, with problem solving skills emphasized throughout. Topics that are reviewed and extended include: linear and quadratic equations, factoring polynomials, rational expressions, exponents, radicals, equations of lines, and systems of equations. New topics include: graphs and their translations and reflections, functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, graphs of quadratic and polynomial functions, nonlinear systems of equations, polynomial, rational and absolute value inequalities, and an introduction to conic sections.

Fall 2009:

ART 300 - Elementary Drawing and Composition @ American River College (Natomas). MW 6 to 820pm. 8/22/09 to 12/17/09. 3 units.
This course is a studio class in drawing and composition. Lectures and discussions stress the fundamental discipline related to the visualization of concrete or abstract concepts. Practice in drawing and development of content will be emphasized.

HIST 311 - History of the United States @ Sacramento City College (Downtown). TuTh 530 to 840pm. 8/22/09 to 10/16/09. 3 units.
This course covers the development of American Institutions and society from Reconstruction to the present and partially fulfills American Institutions requirements. The course emphasizes the role played by political, economic, social, cultural, and intellectual forces on the culture and development of multiple ethnic groups in a comparative format.

MATH 300 - Introduction to Mathematical Ideas @ American River College (Natomas). TuTh 6 to 9pm. 10/17/09 to 12/11/09. 3 units.
This course focuses on elements of mathematical systems. It is designed to make fundamental concepts and processes more meaningful to the general student. Its content may include systems, logic, geometry, combinatorics, probability, statistics, sets, matrices, and number theory. Not recommended for students entering elementary school teaching or business administration majors.

Hopefully, all I will need are a few more classes and then I can work on transferring to a bigger school. Paul took me to UC Davis on Saturday to check out the campus (I was pretty familiar with it, I dated a guy who lived in Davis and we would head to the campus from time to time). I really liked it there and their Art History program looks really good. Not to mention that Wayne Thiebaud is an honorary professor there. And I also have his calender in my kitchen too (yes, I am a dork... I love having calenders of artist in the house. Paul has one of Wassily Kandinsky in the bedroom... Speaking of Kandinsky, he died on my birthday in 1944. Odd). Thiebaud is one of my favorite modern artist (Picasso is my idol) and a local Sacramento native.

I don't know if I could afford $20,000 a year on school tho. Even if it is only for 2 more years while I get my Bachelors degree. Sac State is much cheaper tho. I don't know if I really want to stay in Sacramento tho. I love it here, my family is here, Paul and I have a life here. Who knows anymore. I want to live up to my promise I made to Grandma before she died. I told her that I want to work in a museum. Its the one passion and goal I have in my life. I don't care how long it will take me. I am going to be a curator. I am sick of hearing that I cant do it or that it will be to hard to accomplish. I know I have to kick ass in school and make my dream a reality. I owe it to myself... I know Grandma would be proud of me either way.

First you gotta sign this waiver... Suck up on this lifesaver///

Song of the Day: Fannypack> Pump That

So, I finished another bag yesterday. It is actually for my Aunt Cathy who lives near Indio, Ca. When I saw her for my Grandma's funeral, she came into our hotel room and saw a bag that I had made a while back and liked it. She asked if I could make her one too and I told her that she would have to send me lots of bags in order to do it. A few weeks later, a package arrived at my house and it was about 100 different colored plastic bags that my Aunt had mailed to me. Here is what I came up with...

The whole bag.

Closer look.

Even closer.

Much closer.

The inside.

With my junk in it.

I am using it to break it in for her. She is coming thru town sometime this month. I hope she likes it.

Ugh, I wish I had posted more this week. Life has been interesting for me the last few days. Not much to write about now. I did manage to finish the bag for my Aunt. I completed it tonight. I am rather impressed with it. I want to make more to sell. I seriously wish I had more time to devote to it. *sigh* Maybe, one day.
