I should take up yoga.

Life is complicated. And hard. But we all know that. And I'm coming to accept that. I'll never get everything I want and that's okay because there's good stuff in life that makes it all worth it. There will be bad days and there will be good days and in the end it will all be worth it.

That's my feeling today. Undoubtedly tomorrow I'll have changed my mind and hate everything again. But then I'll come back to this thinking the next day, so it's all good.

Car Issues

I'm sitting in Government, my second class of the day when a security officer comes in. He asks if there's an Alison in the class. When I go into the hall with him, he tells me that there's been an accident involving my car.

It turns out a girl (who's in my accounting class) hit my car when she was parking. There's a decent dent in the rear driver's side door and the panel behind it. God willing, when it gets fixed up it'll be good as new.

The ironic part is that I just cleaned it out yesterday and was planning to go vacuum and wash it today after class. I'm so sad.

I just got my hair cut and while I like it, I can't quite get over the curly hair kick I've been on. I'm worried that the style I want can't be done with a perm or something and that I'll actually have to style my hair daily. These are some examples of what I want... (I'm too lazy to find out how to post pictures)...

Also, I want to dye my hair a little darker. Well, I do when I get a little bit of sun.

More Apartments

I changed my mind. I want to live at Bridgeview Apartments. They have exposed brick! Ugh. I need to get rich quickly. And convince Jenny to live downtown with me. Hmmm. I'll think of something.

Dreams and Goals for the Future

I think have found my ideal apartment. Water Street Apartments in Cleveland. (I'd have to see them before officially labeling them ideal, but they seem perfect.) I see myself with a fancy accounting job downtown and a fancy apartment and my two cats (Filbert and the kitten I will be getting). And I can entertain! And these apartments are very close to the Browns stadium so when everyone goes to the games and gets trashed, you can crash in my fancy apartment!

I do realize that it may be a while before this dream is possible and that by the time it's possible I may have a new dream, but I still believe it's nice to have a dream.

My current goal is to get a decent job that is somewhat related to the accounting field and get an apartment with Jenny (probably closer to Cleveland since that's where most of the jobs are). I also have to figure in school... Oh well. It'll all come together in time.

Reading Material

Today I went out looking for tarot cards. My search was not successful, but I did get to see the Stately Raven (bookstore in Findlay voted best bookstore in Ohio) which was neat. I have to say, I do think that the Book Loft in Columbus is better, but it was still cool. I bought a book there called "Learned Optimism (How to Change Your Mind and Your Life)". I haven't learned much from it yet, but I'm hoping to do so as I read into it. I also almost bought a book about unsolved crimes. That would have been an odd combination.

I need to read something that's fiction and not Harry Potter. I'm thinking my best bet is to go back to the Stephanie Plum books. I enjoyed those while I read them. I just need to figure out where I left off.

The Crap Of Life

Pat has broken up with me. Apparently he did it a while ago but never actually said that we were breaking up, so yeah. Now I'm caught up.

I definitely need a kitten. Or two hundred. Or a month long nap.

In other news, I saw a kid I went to high school with at Wal Mart here in Findlay. It blew my mind.
