09:37 pm - I'm blue
What Color Are You?
BLUES are motivated by INTIMACY, seek opportunities to genuinely connect with others, and need to be appreciated. They do everything with quality and are devoted and loyal friends and employers/employees. Whatever or whomever they commit to are their sole (and soul) focus. They love to serve and will give freely of themselves in order to nurture others lives.BLUES, however, do need to be understood. They have distinct preferences and occasionally the somewhat controlling (but always fair) personality of a confident leader. Their code of ethics is remarkably strong and they expect others to live honest, committed lives as well. They enjoy sharing meaningful moments in conversation as well as remembering special life events (i.e., birthdays and anniversaries). BLUES are dependable, thoughtful, nurturing, and can also be self-righteous, a bit worry-prone, and emotionally intense. They are like sainted pit-bulls who never let go of something once they are committed. When you deal with a BLUE, be sincere, make an effort to truly understand them, and truly appreciate them.

03:32 pm - Money, money, money
My tuition is due on Friday, money is not in my acct. yet, so I can't drop it off. Then I noticed that visa was not one of the cards they accept for tuition payment. What kinda school doesn't accept visa? Ok, so my plan now is to go into the school(something I don't want to do) and stand in a line to pay. Now, if most students are like me, the probability that there will be a long line is pretty damn high. Needless, to say I am not looking forward to this. On top of that I have to go into the school next Saturday at 7:30AM, yessss, 7:30AM, that's earlier than getting up to go to work. But, it's only one day, hopefully, it won't be too bad. Where is the convience of this external degree program? I am not seeing it yet. Can't wait to see what my first class without walls wil be like.
Also, got dh a new cell phone, the first bill is $134. I hate watiting for bills. I still have medical bills from December to pay, even though I paid like three large ones last week. Gas has gone up, so $10 does not look like anything anymore. Insurance is due in a month. And, to top it off, my father-in-law has decided to take a vacation and stay with us, since his oldest son has been kicked out for good now and lives nowhere.
Overtime money is already being calculated in my head and being spent before it even gets here. You will not here me complain about working more since it will be helping to pay insurance and pay bills, bills, bills.

02:31 pm - Tricky Tray is here again
I can't wait to go tonight and waste my money on a 1 out of 350 chance of winning some prizes(some of which are pretty lame). Hope I win something like that hotel stay I did last year. Twenty books won't get me far but I am going to walk in optimistic.

12:54 pm - It's been a while
I had my first filling in 28 years last week. My record is now broken. Finally, happy to have a decent dentist do the job.
My car was towed = $200
Paid his license fine - AGAIN = $250+$100 =$350
Worried about my sick child, runny nose, watery eyes, short breathing. Found out, through a request for his allergy report - I couldn't find my copy. He is allergic to SOY, which I totally didn't remember. Very limited food shopping list now, since almost every god damn thing has soy in it. This week, I'm happy to say that he is breathing normally, and his nose is clear.
Debating whether to go to DC trip in April or Canada camping trip in August. I don't want to be far away with this child of mine and his terrible Spring allergies.
And, I finally paid off my car - WOOHOO! Immediately going to put a large portion of that to savings(automatically) - don't trust myself to do it. And, the rest of it is already being eaten by bills, bills, bills.
Yesterday, I registered for my first college course in two or three years. I hope this external program works for me. I've never done school away from school. This should be very interesting, since I am a huge procrastinator.

02:04 pm - Subject: Life Without Black People
A very humorous and revealing story is told about a group of white people
who were fed up with African Americans, so they joined together and wished
They passed through a deep dark tunnel and emerged in sort of a twilight
zone where there is an America without black people.
At first these white people breathed a sigh of relief.
At last, they said, No more crime, drugs, violence and welfare.
All of the blacks have gone! Then suddenly, reality set in. The "NEW
AMERICA" is not America at all-only a barren land.
1. There are very few crops that have flourished because
the nation was built on a slave-supported system.
2. There are no cities with tall skyscrapers because Alexander Mils, a
black man, invented the elevator, and without it, one finds great difficulty
reaching higher floors.
3. There are few if any cars because Richard Spikes, a black man, invented
the automatic gearshift, Joseph Gambol, also black, invented the Super
Charge System for Internal Combustion Engines, and Garrett A. Morgan, a
invented the traffic signals.
4. Furthermore, one could not use the rapid transit system because its
procurer was the electric trolley, which was invented by another black man,
Albert R. Robinson.
5. Even if there were streets on which cars and a rapid transit
system could operate, they were cluttered with paper because an African
Charles Brooks, invented the street sweeper.
6. There were few if any newspapers, magazines and books because John Love
invented the pencil sharpener, William Purveys invented the fountain pen, and
Lee Barrage invented the Type Writing Machine and W. A. Love invented the
Advanced Printing Press. They were all, you guessed it, Black.
7. Even if Americans could write their letters, articles and books, they
would not have been transported by mail because William Barry invented the
Postmarking and Canceling Machine, William Purveys invented the Hand Stamp
Philip Downing invented the Letter Drop.
8. The lawns were brown and wilted because Joseph Smith invented the Lawn
Sprinkler and John Burr the Lawn Mower.
9. When they entered their homes, they found them to be poorly ventilated
and poorly heated. You see, Frederick Jones invented the Air Conditioner
Alice Parker the Heating Furnace. Their homes were also dim. But of course,
Lewis Lattimer later invented the Electric Lamp, Michael Harvey invented the
lantern and Granville T. Woods invented the Automatic Cut off Switch.
Their homes were also filthy because Thomas W. Steward invented the Mop &
Lloyd P. Ray the Dust Pan.
10. Their children met them at the door-barefooted, shabby, motley and
unkempt. But what could one expect? Jan E. Matzelinger invented the Shoe
Machine, Walter Sammons invented the Comb, Sarah Boone invented the Ironing
Board and George T. Samon invented the Clothes Dryer.
11. Finally, they were resigned to at least have dinner amidst all of this
turmoil. But here again, the food had spoiled because another Black Man,
Standard invented the refrigerator.
Now, isn't that something? What would this country be like without the
contributions of Blacks, as African-Americans?
Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "By the time we leave for work, Americans have
depended on the inventions from the minds of Blacks."
Black history includes more than just slavery, Frederick Douglass, Martin
Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and Marcus Garvey & W.E.B. Dubois.

Ok, I figured I should just type this out since it's been swimming around in my head for the last couple of weeks.
I plan on going back to school again this summer. The problem is, I can't decide on what to major in - should it be History or Psychology? I'd really rather do an art degree but I don't know the first thing about drawing and I never even picked up a brush to paint anything, although I would love to learn. Plus, I really just want to finish this damn degree fast. With psych, I would only have about 18 credits (damn that seems long) and I'll be done. Don't know about history yet.
I wonder what the art courses are like?
