On Harmony and Hummers

This morning I took a prospective to the airport. I enjoy driving, and I get paid to drive a nice car around πŸ˜€ Then I finished up some ASL homework, I’m getting sick of doing these projects day after day after day, all the time! But I love learning and using the language. I had an appointment with Bill Kensey after that to talk about an old gymnastics injury that has caused some recurring neck problems for me and an appointment with Ruth to talk about some major throat tension I’ve been having since last Christmas that’s affecting my singing. I wanted to make sure it wasn’t some medical thing that was causing it….turns out it might be allergies causing drainage down the back of my throat. We’re going to check into that. The main point of the visit though was that I’m fed up with being in pain several days out of every month. I’ve been considering birth control for a long time, but was hoping I had another option that I could try. I don’t like things that mess with your natural cycle. But it’s really my only option, and I’m planning on going on it someday when I’m married anyways, so I guess there’s not a whole lot of difference between starting now and then….I figure this kind of thing does damage slowly over a long period of time, so what are a few more years? But what if it’s more than a few years extra?? Is it worth it? Right now I’m leaning yes.

Anyways, then Interpretation which was fun today and we took some PR picture outside afterward. Then……hum….a bit of cleaning, homework……oh! and I played a video game called “Fable” grrr… Jesse’s rubbing off on me πŸ˜‰ Then supper here in the dorm (thanks Jess) and then over to Reith because writer Susan Neville was presenting some of her pieces. Quite interesting. I really liked her. She had one piece on touring the Hummer factory in Mishiwaka. Hummers (civilian) make me really mad! First of all, they are completely unnecessary and act only as displays of wealth and are a sad showcase of this country’s over consumtion!!!!!! And the gas that they consume!!! and what about when accidents start happening? huh? what then, do you thing that other drivers are going to be safe!!!! NO! of course not. They’ll crush everything in their paths. It doesn’t help my opinion that they are associated so much with the military. And they are just plain UGLY!!!! They’re almost like a couple teenagers having sex in public (bare with me, this makes sense….sort of) meaning that they are a blatant and public display of a social ill- greed. Ok, I’m done. (and Stephanie steps down from her soap box muttering bitterly to herself)

But there’s hope. There’s always hope. Well, I also worked tonight so it’s late. Did I mention that they scheduled me to close tonight and open tomorrow? Yeah….. luckily Marianne is working 6:30-8 so I only have to get up at 7:30. Sigh, off to bed of this little chicky πŸ™‚ Night all.
