s.o.m.
Long time, no post, blah blah.

School is over and I had a successful semester.  I had two classes that were really hard, a post colonial lit class and physics, and I got a C in both classes.  Normally this would be unacceptable, but I was totally happy that I just passed the class.  My other grades were two A's and a B+ so it still averaged out to be a tiny bit above a 3.0.  Next semester will be all A's... I promise.

My break is going pretty boring right now.  I am not working many hours so that's a bummer, but maybe I will get something done.  I wanted to start a new craft, Jewelry making, but decided I have way to many other crafts.  Here's a list of things I have started and have supplies to make/do:
  1. Sewing (two machines and a mini serger)
  2. Quilting
  3. Knitting
  4. Crochet
  5. Cross Stitch
  6. Embroidery
  7. Candle Making
  8. Soap Making (mostly just books)
  9. Wood Burning
  10. Wood Carving
  11. Stamp Making
  12. Ornament Making
  13. Magnets
  14. Image Transfers
  15. Paper Making
  16. Origami
  17. Oil Pastels
  18. Acrylics
  19. Various Collections (cameras, books, patterns, board games, fabric.. etc)
  20. Pin hole camera w/ photo paper
  21. I'm probably forgetting something..
So, after going through those things I decided not to buy supplies to make jewelry. 

I really need a different job.  I hate mine so much. I feel like I shouldn't have such a hard time, I have four years of schooling behind me!  It can't take a rocket scientist to be a waitress or a bartender so wth. what ev.. something will come.

Today, just out of curiosity, I looked up how much my daily medicine that I take would cost if I didn't get it for free from the drug company (because I am poor and don't have insurance) and it would cost $356 a month for the name brand and $238 a month for generic.  I seriously almost puked when I saw that.  How f'ed up is that.

I really don't have much else to say.  It's 2pm and I am not dressed yet.  I think I will go and try to get something done!

Life Lesson #14-  This is something I learned a long time ago, but I'll enlighten you all.  Do not try to make pudding with Soy Milk.  It will never set.   So, if you are really craving some delicious Pistachio Pudding be sure to pick up some regular milk if you don't have some.
OH!!  Also, if you don't drink regular milk often you might want to buy a box of powdered milk.  It sounds gross, but it has been a life saver for me in the past.  I bought a little box and it has lasted me a long time!

If you blend coconut milk into your soy milk(1 part coconut 2 parts soy) it will increase the fat content of the milk which should cause it to set up.

dang! You have such a long list of crafty hobbies.. I wish I had more of an artistic talent but everything I try to make or do always looks so childish and sad.

that is insane about the medicine costs! it just doesn't make sense.. the drug companies are all like 'oh we know this person really really needs this medicine, so lets charge them SO MUCH because they will pay anything for their health!' It's ridiculous how fucked up these companies run and where there morals lie, knowing the importance of the products they carry. ridiculous.

i enjoy staying in my pajamas until 2... sometimes all day :)
