HEY I just wanna say...

I do not own many of the things I share and/or talk about on this website.
If I do own something, my ego will actually force me to make that clear to you,

I promise.

If and when I post images of my handmade jewelry here, just know that these are crappy webcam pics of them. Sharper and prettier images of the products will be posted to the River Rock Jewelry site later, when the item is ready for sale!

You should get the total Jenny experience
by listening to the music video at the top of each post
while reading my ramblings.

And do not let my eccentric, vulgar music throw you off,
I'm a actually a well-adjusted, happy person!

Oral Communication sucks but Im SO good at it

Well at least I think I am. Tell me what you think.

ENG 126 Oral Communication
Assignment- profile a speaker and answer:
Does the speaker show an awareness of the audience's needs and interests?
How does the speaker adapt his or her remarks to meet those needs and interests?

"Thomas Friedman has been the foreign affairs columnist for the New York Time since 1995. He has won a Pulitzer for journalism three separate years with The Times, and in the process has written many books on foreign politics and philosophy. But I did not choose to profile him based upon his merits, or even the speech itself. I chose this because of the audience, which happens to be a rather small, casual group of students and professors from The Massachusetts Institute of Technology. You might also know them as The MIT Group.

I am usually excited to learn about anything involving science and technology, and even though I may not always agree or even understand some of the points presented, I value what The MIT Group represents through their invited guest speakers: the values of openness and honesty within society, the importance of science and technology, how necessary educating people for these fields are, and helping people to understand some very important trends that affect not just this country but the world.

Thomas Friedman is no exception. The speech that he delivered was based around the some of the focal points of a book he wrote called “The World is Flat”. The title was a metaphor for many points he makes: how the world felt just a little smaller after digital internet interconnectivity went worldwide, or how modern social shifts in politics and commerce helped to level the economic world.

I doubt very much that I am anywhere near as smart as some of the teachers, or even the students in that room, but in the 25 minute speech he gives, I understood it all very clearly. He spoke in a way so that anyone could understand. He did make a few jokes or comments focused on technology, science, or education to show common interests. For the small stage and limited seating it was appropriate for the setting to be a little more casual, and he took advantage of it to make the audience more at ease, and to get them involved.

Overall, I am a nerd and this speech just grabbed me from the first time I saw it, back in 2005. There is a second speech from 2007 called “The World is Flat 3.0” that further elaborates his points from the original. The ideas that stick with me the most from both of the speeches, and what I hope to send with each of you as you go on with your day: how learning and bettering yourself should never end, no matter how complex or simple, how simply getting out there and really educating yourself everyday can equip you with the best arsenal to succeed and be happy in the modern world."

I had to share this one

Aaron's mom had to go out of town, so he's been going out to take care of Lucy and Maggie. Lucy hasn't been doing too great recently, so Aaron stayed out there last night to keep an eye on her. And poor Yaya didnt take his not coming home last night very well at all.

This was taken a little while after he was supposed to be home.
"If I stare at door, he will come home..."
She sat there for about an hour. lol
And every time a car drove by, she lifted her head.
Every time a car door would close she'd get up and look out the window.
She woke me up at like 4am barking cause she thought the neighbor,
who gets up at that time every morning and warms up his truck,
was Aaron, and she just darted up and started barking
and wagging her tail all happy screaming
"We're upstairs! We're up here!!!"
She was so disapointed that it wasnt him.
I love that demon dog.

I spent alot of last night going over body terminology,

and I realized Im going to burn myself out quick. I took time out and while I watched some tv, I setup a study schedule for myself. I NEED IT, cause its alot to remember in a week from 3 classes. I just dont want to overload my poor brain. Half of my problem with school has usually been simply remembering all of it. I have a bad memory. Maybe its from all the pot I smoked. OK maybe not maybe... its maybe more like DEFINATELY. lol But already Ive surprised myself. Aaron and I went thru a huge chunk of my second class today, and I got almost everything right. Tonight is Oral Communication. Im hoping this is my easy class for this sememster.

Ok so now on to the music!

I heard both of these in my head all day in class yesterday. Enjoy!

/blow nose

Well, the faucet has stopped running out of my nose, and now it is completely clogged. But my first class was great and oh lord bajeesus its alot to remember. Medical Terminology is gonna be awsome! AND tomorrow is body systems and transport! AAAAAnd Im a little more worried about that one. haha This is a complex machine, this body! Ive been trying to supply it with lots of Vitamin C and fluids so I dont feel like I got hit by a truck. lol

I have to sleep, I studied a while but I didnt want to drive myself nutty so I watched some tv to wind down, and Im flat out exhausted.
