One of the best stations in Memphis, TN up and disappeared recently. THis station, 93X, is one of my family's big, all-time favorite stations! It plays bands like Mudvayne, Chevelle, Shinedown, Saliva, and was a HUGE supporter of local music! Egypt Central, Aurora, etc found their way through this station.

Apparently, the big wigs got REALLY greedy and decided that the ratings were "too low" (bullshit!) and to get them higher they changed it to a damn Sports channel, as if we didnt have ENOUGH of those!

Well, as Twisted Sister so expertly said it, "We're NOT gonna take it!"

I started playing WoW a little over a year ago and have recently reached my first 80! Unfortunately, I have become a little bored with playing now. I got burned out on questing trying to get my 80 (feral druid on Silvermoon) to 80, and my computer sucks a bit so no instances for me. Anyways, I was goofing off the other day and managed to make my way under Stormwind. That was a bit weird. I ended up falling into the blue. Down, down, down I went until I died. =(

Anywhoo, I managed today to do something even more awesome!


Would you like to see what I did?Collapse )

Thanks to my brother who got me there and to my mom who made him his chopper which got me there!

Whoulda thunk that when I signed up for the Education program, I would be signing up to ride the Roller Coaster of the University. First you have to wait FOREVER in line before getting on the ride. Once you're there, off you go!

The beginning of the ride starts with a long, slow climb up a hill- the most boring part of the ride. When you finally crest the hill (make it into the Education program)


Things begin to happen in lightning flashes. Assignments, field experience, background checks, research, until you are jerking back and forth from all of the buffeting.


Finally, you get a bit of a rhythm going; you get used to the jerks from side to side.  Thats when they throw the loopty-loop in your way.

Your entire world is flipped upside down. Yes is no, wrong is right, then is now. You get the picture. Suddenly, you're not on the fast track anymore. Instead you're going in a different direction.

Finally, its all over and you don't know whether to pass out or get sick. Either way you're left breathless and wondering why the hell you got on the ride in the first place.

Welcome to the College of Education!

One of my big hobbies is playing a MMORPG game called World of Warcraft, also known as WoW. Well when Blizzard needs to update some stuff they release patches. Patches are two-fold. They are great because usually some cool stuff, but there are always f*ups when it happens. Like right now. URGH!

I think I can honsestly say that this has been the longest semester that I have ever gone through. Today and tomorrow are my finals; then I will finally be done with the semester from hell. Two years from now, I will, hopefully, be graduating with a bachelor's degree from University of Memphis. Thank GOD!

Have you ever had one of those days? You know, one of THOSE days. One where, if there happened to be a glass vase sitting next to you, it would be shattered on the wall the next minute? Or where you find out that people you thought you knew, turned out to be completely different? Or maybe you find yourself locked in Nostalgia's grip and you can't seem to free yourself?

Those are the kind of days that you begin to wish your parents or spouse or ANYBODY hadn't bought you that great new boxset of "Stargate" (or whatever you're into) for Christmas, but instead bought you a very large punching bag that hangs from the ceiling. Those are the kind of days that you feel that, just maybe, therapy isnt such a bad idea.

THOSE days are the days where you break out the big guns:
, , , etc. Angry people music. Why is it that angry people singing about being angry is a balm to other angry people? Do the emotions cancel out?

Regardless, THOSE days are to be treated with : for the people having them, as well as those around that person. All things are fair game on THOSE days. Inanimate objects, BEWARE!!!!!!

Today at 4:30 I lost my last remaining grandmother. This poem and blog I dedicate to her.


REMEMBER me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

Sue Thomas FBEye fan fiction, but can really be read as is without knowledge of characters.

I stand here on one of the worst, and now best, days of my life. It was on this day, ten years ago exactly, that my life was changed forever. For worse, better, sometimes…most times I can't tell. I hate myself sometimes; I hate her; heck, I even hate God some moments. Even a full decade later, I still don’t understand. Why? That question haunts me at times. But at moments like this, standing before you, what haunts me most is the fact that it doesn’t haunt me enough. Does that make sense? I see you smile and shake your head telling me that no it doesn’t make sense, but its okay because you expect it from me. It hurts that I know you so well, even now, that I can see your replies without you physically here.


But I came here for a reason, and I can't stay long. I apologize for that but I know you understand. I can't leave her, no, them alone for long. I thought you’d like to know that we named him after you. I know you’d have done the same if the situations were reversed. Although I think if we traded places, like I used to wish so often, nothing much would be the same.


Except her.


You’d have married your girl. Only I married your girl. I like to think, though, that you approve of us. I know you like to see her happy. And happy she is. We both are.



Well, I better go. I want to get back to Sue and the baby. I’ll try to get back soon. Bye.




A figure, with hunched shoulders, walked off, dissolving back into the night, leaving behind the best of friends.
