girls weekend away

So I did what any other rational student would do this weekend- took off for a nice retreat with my girlfriends for a relaxing massage, soak in the hotsprings, dinner at the Copper Room, and walk on the beach.....Here are the pics to prove it. 2 of the girls are pregnant in their second trimester- way to keep up on the dance floor Michele!

the precious gift

so yesterday I was watching the show "six feet under" on dvd. What struck a chord in me was the character who meets this guy who's in a band and is kind of a free spirit like her. Well, as the episode goes on they start spending everyday together, and are becoming super intimate (in a very short amount of time!). So, fast forward to the scene where the guy says to the girl "So, we should do something on saturday..." to the girl replies "what, do you have a busy week?!" come on- they've been spending everyday together!! to which he replies "ummm, you don't think we're exclusive do you??" paraphrase what he says: Cause I totally sleep with other women, and you can sleep with other guys, I don't care... What the?! So, she is a little shocked, but tries to play it like she knew all along and that she's cool with it- and proceeds to respond to him once again and fall right into his trap!

Okay, this makes me so sad because I see this in the world today, as women we stand there and take second best, rather than only accept only the best. Why do we put up with this crap? We deserve much much better, and being suckered into the trap of second best sets us up for low self-esteem, low self-worth, and so many more problems. Some guy hurts us, so the next one we meet we try so hard to please him, to make no waves cause we want him to like us and don't want to be rejected like the last time...Also, thinking about virginity, and how easily people give it up, not treating it as something precious that we have to hold onto tightly until we find the one we will spend the rest of our lives with. You may not all have this view, but it's something I hold onto, and even more tightly so when I see shows like the one mentioned above...I have been thinking that whoever I end up with, I should hope that he treats me like a princess (respect, honor, cherishing, ect), because if he doesn't think the world of me I don't think I can take it (not that it's all about me, because I think it should be reciprical). I also believe that no guy could ever complete me, and if I think that I would be sadly mistaken. The only one who completes me and fills my heart- because He knew me before I was even in my mother's womb, it God! Ok, that's all for my ramblings today- I had some time to do this as my clinical was cancelled today.

dying plant, a good book and puffy eyes

So, the plant I have been feeding and water regularly since sept. I have been slowly killing. Why? Because I didn't look at the directions for the liquid fertilizer that say to add 7 drops to 1 liter of water- well I have been watering and then adding 10 drops to the soil.Ahhhh! Always read the directions carefully. The leaves are slowly dying and the ones not drooping are turning from green to a lighter color- I don't know what the name of the plant it but I will take the poor thing's picture.

On another note I bought this new vit. E cream for reducing wrinkles, lines and puffiness under the eyes. I think I had an allergic reaction because under my eyes this am they are really puffy. Oh well, the battles that come with fighting aging...

I am reading a book "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle maintenance" I like it because I can read it and it explains the way I think- classic vs romantic- I am the ladder. And for classic thinkers I am now able to understand why they possibly think like they do. I have come to the conclusion that I am logical when I need to be- for example I would hope I am logical if I am in a life-death situation where quick thinking ahead beyond the surface of the situation is required. There is so much more to this book but for now I am going to enjoy it and will probably talk about it more. I also feel the need to ride a motorcycle since reading this book.

the puffy eyes- could be I need to dust though....
