My Space

I used to make fun of people who used face book and my space. Most of my friends are using my space now, I was a little hesitant at first about its "coolness." After monitoring a few of my friends' my space accounts, my space has really grown on me. It is definately one of those things that you should "not knock it until you try it." I recently set up my own account becuase I think I like it better than blogger and it is easier to communicate with my friends. It is also easier to maneuver and add interesting facts about yourself, pics, music, and friends' links. I feel like such a lemming just trying to be one of the "cool kids." Oh, well. I have not added all my info on my space yet, I need to find the time to fill in my profile, but it is up and running. I would recommend My space to anyone interested in fun blogging and friendship communication.

Music to your ear?

I recently purchased a new CD. I have been wanting the new James Blunt CD and finally gave in to it. I love it. It is so relaxing and just has good songs. I love buying new CDs. For a while, I was buying new CDs left and right from Amazon. Amazon is a great site! I have been getting better about not just purchasing random stuff. CDs that I am looking forward to purchasing: Beyonce's new one, My Chemical Romance, Foo fighters, Coldplay, and many others that I need to find out the names of. I always love songs, but forget who sings them. I recently purchased Mariah Carey's new one and it is a pretty good one too. Any good CD recommendations out there?

oh my blog

I don't get it!!! I have been trying to post a permanent blog roll on my blog and I just do not get it. I am computer stupid!!!!!!! How long does it take a college student to make a blog roll? In my case, she, obviously being me, will probably never be able to figure it out. All the codes and stuff are just way too confusing. <;:ah2> huh???? I have resorted to asking my companies computer tech for some expertise. Surely I will be able to come up with something. I am determined to learn how to do it, do it right, and just get it done!!!!! Has there ever been anything you could not figure out and you were just so determined to overcome it and beat it????

New topic! I was watching Katie Couric this morning, which is routine while getting ready for work, and they were discussing the issue 'whether or not an empolyer should be allowed to fire or not hire someone becuase they smoke.' In Ohio, there is a company or are companies that practice this and it is not illegal. I have mixed feelings on this one. I am not a smoker and wish that the people closest to me, emotionally and most times those that are in my physical bubble, would not smoke. It gives you Cancer and you will more than likely die! For those of you who do not care and argue that we are all going to die sooner or later, that is fine, just don't blow it in my direction. I have enough things I do in my life that are going to kill me sooner or later and smoking is not one that I choose to die by. But, I am just not 100% sure that your employer should fire you for what you do to yourself on your PERSONAL time. I like to skydive, hike, rock climb, and anything else that could be potentially life threatening and adventurous, but it is done on my time and I should not be afraid I will lose my job over it. I can see their argument that health care costs are higher for the employees who smoke becuase of more requent health problems and sometimes cancer treatments that the company pays for. Is there not a way to make an addedum that states 'treatments to problems that can be directly associated with smoking are not going to be included in health care benefits provided by the company? ' or is it just easier to say "you're fired!"????? I heard they also provide counseling and treatments to those who are willing to try to quit smoking. Does this not cost money? Does anyone have any insight?? I would love to hear it!

Ok. So not only is it already a pain in the @$$ to go to the University workout facility becuase it is normally really busy with really young, good looking college sutdents, more than likely freshman; but do the the girls really need to wear as short of shorts as they are wearing? I think I saw the bottoms of a few butt cheeks that I could have finished the day without seeing. Not only do most of these girls show up to "work out" in really short shorts, but they barely mall walk around the track in groups of about 4 girls. This takes up the entire track and they are not even getting a workout at the pace they are moving; my dead grandmother could walk faster than they walk normally. They are probably afraid to move any faster than a snail in fear of actually breaking a sweat. The reason I mention this is because all these girls have full make-up on and probably do not want to mess it up...give me a freaking break already! If you work out anywhere, please try to wear something that your @$$ is not hanging out of and do not even think about working out if you need to wear make up. I am sorry if you wear make-up when you work out, but I think it is absolutely rediculous. I am only 23, not "fat", and I do not consider myself ugly and these girls get on my nerves! I can't imagine what my mom would think of it and I really don't consider her opinion on things.
Welcom to my blog! It is a great morning. Snow is in the air and it is chilly this morning. I love it when it is cold becuase then I do not feel guilty about all the coffee I drink on a daily basis. This is the only reason why I like it when it is cold. In the summer, I just tell people "at least I do not smoke." Anyone else have an addiction or habit to coffee or anything similar that is not really life threatening, just for pleasure??
