Hello everyone and a Happy Belated Thanksgiving to my friends here in the US who celebrate the holiday. I hope everyone had a wonderful time either by yourself or with friends and family. My Thanksgiving was nice; could have done with not having to clean my mom's or cook Thanksgiving dinner before my step-grandparents got here but it wasn't a bad day. My step-father was supposed to clean for my mom before he left to get his dad and step-mother but he just piled it up on the side of the living room and the dining room and said it was done. He was also going to put the turkey in before he left because he "wanted to do something special to it" but he forgot so I did that. Well, when he got home, he was going to to dinner since we never let him cook but he sat down and went "I'll get it in a few minutes". Well, it was 3 at that point and the rest of dinner was going to take an hour and a half to two hours and he had to drive them back down to Philly from Harrisburg so I went to the fridge in the garage and got everything. I'm in the kitchen ten minutes later after getting everything in the oven and was getting ready to set the dining room table when he goes "I was going to get it in another twenty minutes or so." Well, by the time he got around to it, we wouldn't be eating until 6 or 7. But it's cool; it was a nice evening.

Last night at about 9:30, Steve and I ran to Toys R Us up here to see if they had the Pro Guitar for Rock Band 3. Well, we got over to the one closet to mom's house in Harrisburg and left; the number of cars and the lines of people was insane. So we went to the other one about seven miles away and could see the line a bit better - this was wrapped around the building and then some. We said forget it. We have the guitar pre-ordered at the GameStop near my apartment but they keep pushing the release date back and we know some places have them. Mom and I were watching the news at 11 and they showed the second Toys R Us and said that the line had thousands of people in it; they let 500 in at 10 and the lines was stilled wrapped around the building and up to the mall. Then they said the Harrisburg Toys R Us (the first one we went too) was even worse then that one. So even if we had gotten into the line and gotten in, we wouldn't have gotten into it. One of the woman that I work with said the one down in Montgomeryville near my apartment was as bad and I was reading the FB of someone from high school and it was as bad as the one near my apartment in Horsham. When I have kids; I don't care about the huge sales; I will start shopping early in the season and put it away so that come Black Friday; I could spend the day with my kids and not try and fight the insane crowds. I do not see what the allure is to doing the shopping on this day.

Moving into the apartment is done for now. I cannot afford to buy bookshelves or a couch so that will have to wait until some time next year and I've unpacked what I can without having bookshelves. I've also settled in nicely. It's quiet most of the time except for the people upstairs but there's nothing I can do about that and I can live with it. My brother is staying there a lot with school and work so I have some company. The next couple of weeks, things will be extremely tight so we'll be having spaghetti a lot but that's alright. Haven't been going out much; though I really don't have a lot of friends anymore so that's not a problem. With school I keep pretty busy plus work and Steve has Rock Band 3 so we've been playing that a few times a week. And we've been watching Doctor Who through Netflix and his PS3 so it's really not that bad. I'm getting into a schedule and now that I've gotten settled, won't have to run around so much so I can also work on some webpages to build some skills up.

Now that my schedule is evening out, I'm also going to make an effort to be on the journal a bit more and to get to know people. It's like I fell off the face of the Earth but I've just been so busy and the depression was back for awhile but it's all evening out now.

Okay - and I said I wasn't going out today but my mom needs to run to CVS and I don't want her driving with all the idiots who are out there driving today.

Well, we got a lot of stuff out of my room this afternoon. I do have to go through a lot more but it's amazing how much we got out and how much room there now is. Basically I have a corner which is actually a lot of my step-father's stuff and then the right side of my bed which I think is actually clothes, yarn and books. I'm a clothes whore and I'm not afraid to admit it. That will probably be what I do in the morning; go through clothes and see what I want to keep and what I don't want to keep. With the cramps and such that I'm having, it'll be nice, easy work that won't kill me. And then I'll have the back room to contend with. That room I can do even if it is hot out as the air conditioner really works well. The one in my bedroom does not work well at all. It hasn't for about three years but it's okay to sleep by with a fan. This weekend was perfect for the front room because it was cool today and tomorrow is going to be even cooler. I know, I should have done it in the winter but then I'm contending with the cold as the heat doesn't always warm the room that well. The trials of living in a house that's over 100 years old and needs a lot of work.

Anyways, aside from that, what have I been up to? Well, I did mention that I've been getting to know this guy. He messaged me on match.com about...two months ago I'd say and I did write back. We talked twice on match.com, then a few times in e-mail and we talk a lot of facebook. We also just started talking through text messaging. He respects the fact that I'm ... not terrified ... but dislike greatly talking on the phone and isn't pressuring me to do so. He's fine with text messaging. Basically we've agreed that the best thing is for us to be friends because I'm moving to Harrisburg, he lives in Philadelphia and doesn't drive but it's nice getting to know him. As of right now, we have no plans to meet in person but just to get to know each other through talking...well writing. This morning he was really sweet and just messaged me good morning and that he hoped I would have a good day. Okay, so we started text messaging yesterday when I decided at lunch to message him hi as I sat by the lake. But it was nice. Let's see, he's 31, is interested in music, used to play WoW, enjoys reading, watches a lot of crime drama and also enjoys British Comedy. He's easy to talk to though we are writing and through e-mail, I can even talk to the crush - which I'll get to next. Anyways, his name is Joe and I've just been enjoying talking to him. He also told me he likes me with red hair (he was looking at my facebook pictures) and that he'd like to see me with blond hair. Oh, and he knows I have depression issues and that I see a therapist and isn't freaked out by it. Tomorrow morning I'll write him another e-mail. I'd do it tonight but I usually wind up taking about an hour to write an e-mail back to him and I have alloted myself the last hour before bed to knitting since I found an easy scarf to knit.

Next thing that has been going on is I've sorta been talking to the crush more. Not in person but one day last week he closed one of my tickets and like I always do, I sent him a quick e-mail thanking him (because it's only polite to thank someone after they've fixed something for you even if they do work on the help desk) and asked how he was. I hadn't heard from him in a few weeks and I figured like normal I'd get a yw with a smiley face and that would be it. But it wasn't. He actually answered me back with how he was and then asked how I was. So we went back and forth a little that day (he was telling me about his new puppy). The next day I was walking back to the DE suite for a meeting, didn't see him and was somewhat surprised when I heard hi Jenn and looked up to see him hooking up a computer. I got to say hi, asked how he was and then had to run to the meeting that I was already late too. Part of me says I should have said fuck the meeting and stayed to talk to him but I didn't. The day after that, followed the same as the first; I thanked him for closing a ticket, asked how he was and he answered back. That day we talked about how he was frustrated with something. Friday of the week saw the same and we talked about how he needed a vacation and how long it's been since he's been on a vacation. Oh yeah, and since we've been e-mailing, his name moved up in my Outlook list and I accidentally sent him an e-mail that was for someone else so he now knows that my one nickname is Chloe (thanks Kim!). Didn't really talk to him this week; not because I didn't want to but he didn't answer the e-mail I sent on Wednesday asking how he was and if his dog had a name yet. He did answer one that afternoon that got sent to him accidentally and he did say he was going to watch the Flyers that night. Did talk to him briefly on the phone yesterday but there was someone else on the phone plus...again...I don't talk on the phone. LOL. Anyways, we talked briefly through e-mail too yesterday; it was really nothing; just asked how he was (and he asked how I was) and then I asked what he was doing for the weekend (he told me he was going to West Chester to watch the UFC fight) and I apologized for kind of snapping at him on the phone since he was calling to fix one thing and I was having a mini crisis in that our main data entry program had just crashed and no one was able to work (he fixed it really quick) but apparently he didn't see me as snapping when we were on the phone. So I'm confused on him; does he know I exist or doesn't he, does he see me as someone who could be a friend or doesn't he, does he see me as someone who could be more then a friend or doesn't he?

Yeah, so now I have two guys that I like; though I like them differently. Joe I see as someone who has the potential of being a really good friend. He's easy to talk to and I don't know if either of us see it as going any further then that. The crush on the other hand, I think could be more then a friend but I have no clue where he stands or what he thinks.

At the same time, my heart was broken a little this past week when I found out that Tony Stewart is dating a skinny little blond.

The yarn that I ordered from yarn.com the other day arrived this morning so I was able to start knitting the scarf that I wanted to. It's a beginner scarf that I found in one of my knitting magazines. It's not a long one; about 23" long total; but with that said, it shouldn't take me three years to knit. Since the entire pattern is the knit stitch, I did order more expensive yarn since usually I buy the cheap stuff from Michael's or A.C. Moore. I'm not too worried about screwing this up. I will just take my time and work slowly on it. This is what I'm attempting to make. It's in the Knit Scene Easy magazine. All the projects in the magazine are suppose to be easy to make. Here are all the projects in the magazine. I am slowly going to work my way through them. I really think they'll help me learn to knit better.

School starts on Friday (the 12th). I am now taking a science class and the software applications class since I wasn't allowed to take web design and software applications at the same time. The science class I'm worrying about since science has never been my strong point. Anyone good at science? Because I might have questions that I need help with trying to understand what they're asking. I also have to e-mail my adviser because they've taken all my electives by filling in classes from my paralegal agree; great except some of them are not the best grades but rather the ones that I was in when my mom was in the hospital and they thought she could possibly die. Wasn't my best at the time and school really wasn't my concern.

Okay, I think I'm going to go. I do want to write that e-mail to my adviser before I forget. Hope everyone is doing well!

I am a bad, bad person. I haven't disappeared, life just has gotten very busy plus I have a lot going on in my head right now that I've been trying to deal with on my own like a big girl. Between working, trying to pack my room, classes starting next Friday, and getting to know this really nice guy through e-mail and text messaging (and no, it's not the guy I've been crushing on for a year), I haven't had any free time. Plus, since I'm going to probably focus in web design in school, I've been trying to brush up on my web site skills. Anyways, after this weekend (the step-father and I are tackling my bedrooms), I should have some more free time and can get to know my new friends here.

But I am interested in how everyone is. So...how is everyone?

Okay - since it's now official, I can say that while I did drop out of law school during the beginning of this month, I begin by next Bachelor's Degree on May 12th. Yup, I am back at Kaplan working on a Bachelor's in Information Studies. I did manage to register for the Introduction to Website Development (7 PM on Sunday nights) but I cannot get into the Introduction to Information Studies class. I will have to check tomorrow night and then if it's not up, I will e-mail the adviser listed on my school homepage. Can you tell I'm excited? Received the e-mail ten minutes ago that I was activated as a student again and I'm already registering for classes. :)
