Dear School,

Thanks for an awesome year. There were some up’s and down’s, but I can honestly say now that I am learning and growing as a person and a professional. I feel like my surgery slowed me down a bit, and I probably over-extended myself afterward, but it’s been an experience to say the least.

I made some mistakes but I feel as though I was forgiven. I met some people–some similar, some different, but overcoming differences is what makes us unique individuals. I feels that no matter what, I have something to be proud of and I am grateful for it.

Peace out until fall, take care of my stuff–

Health #3

Dear Tummy,

Please feel better soon….actually, feel BEST soon. I need you, but I need you back to your old self. I’m trying my hardest not to rush you, in fact! we will rest all day today while I write, but please just be you again. I know you’ve been through a lot in my life, so, I am grateful. You are my favorite organ….after my brain, of course.

I hope you have a good night and that you rest up!
Love always, me.

a sleepy letter…..aaannnddddd she’s back!

Holiday Season

Dear everyone,

Happy holidays. It is December 1st which means its Christmas…It does last all month, doesn’t it? Well, tonight starts the small celebration of Hanukkah–Chanukkah–Hanukah–Channuka…you get the idea. So, yay! 8 days of me doing homework…wait.notfun.

I just wanted everyone to know that the holidays are a time of giving, not being greedy…so, if you can, try to give back in one way or another….maybe a toy to Toys-4-Tots, or a few cans to the food bank, even old winter clothes can make someone new warm…everyone wins. Just, don’t forget about the less fortunate, everyone deserves some happiness around the holidays, don’t you think?

Thanks bunnies.
always, me.

ps: I don’t exactly know where it came from, but the combining of the holidays (Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanza)into one word is something that drives me crazy. That is not a word, in fact, I feel like its a mockery to all 3 holidays…if you’re unsure of which holiday someone celebrates, a simple, all encompassing “Happy Holidays!” works wonders.

Cable Car

Dear Cable Car riders,

This is a mode of transportation, not a roller coaster. Do not scream as it goes down the street. It is not there for entertainment. How about I get in my car and scream as I drive down your street? You’d like that, wouldn’t you. I would get arrested for that, and yet, there you are allowed to do that in front of my building. not okay.

keep your trap shut, me.

Dear loyal followers (all 6 of you),

Please don’t hate me. School picked up and my workload probably won’t get any better until the end of the semester, but, in other news, my very own mother got married. Everyone do their happy dance! šŸ™‚

Anyhoo, I am writing tonight to tell you that Josh Groban’s new album, “Illuminations” will be released officially tomorrow. (more happy dancing in order). Three years ago, I saw Josh Groban in concert at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. The day before the concert, the 7th Harry Potter book was released. I didn’t sleep that weekend. Josh touched my hand, I was nearly in tears. (yes, fangirl status activated.) I remember it very well. Since then, I have seen him perform live about 9 times. Living in New York gave me great access and I am forever grateful. But, I have moved to San Francisco and while he is on the east coast currently, I will be stuck, joshless and sad, buried in homework…Also ironically, the 7th Harry Potter movie is coming out this week also. Josh+HP=wonderous.

This is the end of my fangirl..I promise…its not usually a color I show, but, when I can, I do. Especially for these two amazing events.

All the best, me.

PS: Josh, if this comes up in your gmail alerts, I want you to know that at first, your album sounded a little wonky, but, honestly, I think it’s beautiful…All theĀ acousticsĀ and those few classics thrown in, it really is a wonderful cut. Thank you for sharing it with your fans early. My one request is a tour stop in San Francisco, unless the tour is in summer, then Southern CA….well, email me, we’ll discuss it. šŸ™‚

Dear Doctors of the world,

Who said it was okay for you to discriminate against who you treat and how fair you treat them? The oath you take says to first do no harm….How is that translated into, “oh, because you’re overweight, you deserve less of my time.” or, “oh, you’re heavier than the other people I have waiting, so, let me get through this quickly, write aĀ prescriptionĀ for something that may or may not work properly, and get on with things..” People who are overweight are more at risk for different medical problems, and you just don’t have time for them. What, do you think it’s okay because they choose to be heavy, so, they can deal with the consequences? No. That’s not how it works. You, a man (or woman) of science should know better than to think that way.

I am obese. According to any given BMI calculator, I am far from “normal”…so, does that mean that when I need to go to the doctor, I will be pre-judged? Does the doctor even ask if I am dieting, if so, does he even care? Does he care that I’ve tried so many different diets, I gave up? No, okay, so then why would ANYONE overweight have faith in the medical world? how is that even okay?

I have friends who are studying to become doctors and physicians assistants and dentists and I just want them to think about how they would feel to be treated as second or even third class citizens. Not okay.

The original Article: Are Doctors Biased Against Overweight Women?

anyway, I am angry, needless to say, so…
all the best, me.

Mid-Semester blues, anyone have them?
Dear school,
You are fun, and I enjoy you a great deal, but, there are times when I wish I was already rich and successful and having had the chance to cross lots of things off my life goals list. My 5 year plan is pretty much out the window, but I do have like…3 years left, so, we’ll see. But, sometimes, I feel like being in grad school is kind of redundant. I’d rather learn by doing, but, I remember what Nick, the editor I worked for told me. He said that he stumbled into the job he has and that most producers look at your schooling–the more you have and the more training you have, the better off you’ll be. I’m really glad that he told me that because it kind of makes things better. you know?

Anyhoo, that’s all. I think that I’m just worried about life after school, which is kinda silly, but still–its my future. I need to have a good job when I graduate or else then what?? Then I’ll be drowning in debt and I’ll have nothing to show for myself except a diploma and a good work ethic. I just want to make sure that when everything’s said and done, things will work out……can you do that for me, school? (Good thing I have a meeting with my advisor tomorrow, lets hope he’s not a douche.)

Also, everyone, please support breast cancer awareness month. If not for someone you know, then for my Bubby who died of breast cancer before I was born.

Click here to help fund freeĀ mammograms for those who need them.
and Click here to shop at the Breast Cancer Site Store, also funding mammograms.

Sorry for the length of the post, I realized that I haven’t posted in awhile.
Have a super start to your week everyone!
Hugs, me.

Dear political friends,

We all know how into politics I am….Lets just say I’m into them as much as a cat is into tub-baths. But, I read THIS and it made me think……What happens when a president is done its 4 years? Not just like..where does he go, but, it’s almost like, Now What? What happens now that GWB is done…he lives out his days sipping lemonade on his front porch? Obviously Clinton is still around, doing things, but, as the article says, GWB left office highly unpopular. So, an unpopular, ex-president…what to do with my life? I just feel like for someone like GWB, he can’t really get farther….

just a thought, me.

ps: I saw some marines and some sailors……Cute as buttons..ALL of them.

A fleeting week.
