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!

Ok, I know I'm a little late but here's my piece

I knew the Dalai Lama was town, but I hadn't heard about any of this until I went to English Comp class on Monday. We talk about current events in class, so I heard it like this... Apparently when Myron Lowery met with the Dalai, instead of shaking his hand, he greeted him with a "fist bump". You know, like he was one of the homies. My teacher argued that it was unprofessional of him, and I can understand that view point. I think our politicians should be serious, and humble.

When I got home, I brought it up to Aaron,and he practically rolled his eyes. He told me to just go watch the video online of the Dalai's reaction. I did watch the video, and it seemed he was very good natured about it, and maybe even appreciated the gesture. Aaron said that after the cameras went away the Dalai did it several more times and had quite a good laugh out of it.

Aaron also told me that this gesture, the fist bump, has been going on for several weeks in the city council, mainly due to people trying to limit contact of skin because of the H1N1 virus. And then I found an interview with Lowery about the incident.

Personally, YES, I wish that our politicians would be more considerate and professional. I wish they'd take responsibility, and do their jobs to the best of their abilities. But I can't slam Lowery for this one. The Dalai isn't the Pope. He really seemed to enjoy the sentiment, and I figure it is open-minded publicity for this city, considering all of the oppression and bullshit that people believe about other people's perspectives about anything!!! None of that made any sense did it?

Anyways, watch the short little video and decide for yourself.

I just thought it was worth mentioning

The Dictionary.com word of the day is:

ameliorate \uh-MEEL-yuh-rayt\, transitive verb:

1. To make better; to improve.

intransitive verb:
1. To grow better.

How appropriate.

I dont have time now, its too late, but I want to remind myself to write something about the "fist bump" fiasco this week. AND TO STUDY YOUR MATH!!!

These are from a few nights ago, while I studied.
I need to post a lot of stuff that I just haven't yet.
Because I'm getting lazy. haha

Here's some more Ive recently scanned,
some from a very long time ago.

Hope you like!
I'll post more late in the week,
when I have some spare time.

I made a 98 on one test and a 100 on the other in my Calculations of Dosage class. Math is usually my weakest subject, but now that I've gotten some confidence actually using some of these equations to do the conversions, I GOT THIS.

BTW I LOVE English Comp! My teacher is very interesting and down to earth. For homework, I only have to write a 3 paragraph essay on the topic:

"The 3 best things I can do for myself"

I've already planned it and written the outline, but I'm gonna write it on Sunday, when I'm off work. I'm also going to bake a cake for Aaron that day. And he said we might even go see a movie.

I haven't said recently how in love I am with this man. We might not always be able to show each other how much, but I love him more than I can express, more than even I understand. I cant imagine living without him anymore. Is that a little too crazy? Whats funny is I just dont care. It feels like it was meant to be to me, and its all I want. Him. It's funny when I catch myself thinking things like why HAVENT we gotten married yet? Oooh oooh... better not jinx myself there.

Im off to bed. I work all weekend.

OH! I want bring back an old tradition in my posts before I go...

Class is about to start so I might just suddenly stop talking and post this...

Ive actually been posting alot on my private blog, trying to rant about some of the things that are driving me crazy right now. These are some of things that have been happening:

Richard got a new dog (Sunny) who I will be posting pictures of later.

One of Leslie's bosses got H1N1 flu and is very very sick.

Richard might be in trouble with the credit card companies, but we will know more later.

I LOVE MY CLASSES - English is awsome. My teacher, Mr Nichelson is so interesting and he really strives to get us to think. My Microsoft Office class is SO FREAKING BORING right now. Its understandable because he's teaching the class like we've never touched a pc before. So I'm trying to keep from falling asleep in every class. But eventually we will move from Word and Excel (which I know) to powerpoint and access (which I don't) and maybe I won't be so bored. And then there's the MED class. Dosage and Calculation of Medications. Basically it's math. AND I HATE MATH.

I was sitting here earlier waiting on class to start and i found an AWSOME FREAKING IMAGE of super typhoon Choi-Wan which hit Category 5 this afternoon.

Aaron and my mom's birthdays are coming up on the 22nd. I know what I'm getting mom, but I'm still unsure about what exactly Aaron would like.

Class is starting back up so I'm gonna run.

Ok so tonight sucked. lol I got a headache from staring at the projector for so long while being so close during class. So once I got home and took something, that took me a little while to get over, and now that I feel better I wanted to talk some more. haha

Tonight in my Microsoft Office class I converted someone to blogger.com! Angela, who was in my Oral Communications class last semester, and who also sits next to me in this Office class, asked me what I was working on when I posted earlier about Paul. I showed her how Blogger works, how she can tie it into her Yahoo account, and she was hooked. Within two minutes, she had made a blog with a huge smile on her face the whole time. It really made my night to make her so happy.

So I almost forgot to tell you (and by you I mean anyone who might stumble to this page of infinite insanity) that the Levitt Shell concert series is going on!!! FREE MUSIC CONCERTS to the public September 3 through October 4. These concerts are on every Thursday Friday Saturday and Sunday night at 7pm at the Levitt Shell in Overton Park. It is mostly open grassy areas, where you can spread out the blanket or fold out chairs and listen to ALL kinds of music. PLEASE GO!!! This is an event where you can you meet your neighbors, and find new friends! Go to the Levitt Shell website for more info!
Im at school so I dont have very long. I just wanted to say...

Dr. Paul called me today, and said he was on the long trip from Pennsylvania to Florida. He thought maybe he might come close enough to Memphis to stop by my house and visit for a while. But once we calculated how far he was from my house at that moment, compared to my school and work schedule we realized it wouldnt work. He would have gotten here REALLY late, like 3 or 4 and I needed to be in bed for work by then. So YET AGAIN, I didnt get to meet Paul. It's not anyone's fault, but it would have been really nice to hug him in person.

ah crap, I got to go... class is starting backup.

This is some very interesting artwork Aaron found on deviant art. Alot of the other works on his page are twisted versions of Disney characters. I loved these one of course.

Im very tired tonight and it is already WAY too late for me to be up, since I have school and work tomorrow. I just needed to say something before I sleep. Here I go talking about myself again! (I am so in love with myself.)

There have been few people in my life that I have loved like family, even though we might not seemed as close as I felt we were. For many reasons, one of which being that some people are not as emotional, or as expressive about their emotions to one another as I am. I tend to be overbearing and needy, and I recognize this. I try to compromise with people for who they are, and honestly it hurts my feelings when someone tells me I over react about something that I feel I had a right to react to. I don't want to be this annoying person who people see as overemotional and flaky. But at the same time I refuse to let people tell me how I should feel about something, or someone. I get my opinions too, you know. Right or wrong, just like everyone else. I get very little time to socialize and enjoy the company of friends, so I flat out refuse to let any bullshit impede upon that time. So I simply continue to live my life...

something smart, and something stupid


If you have never watched the movie The Dark Crystal,
this will make absolutely NO sense to you.
If you have, prepare to laugh.
