Wow.. I can't believe 2004 is nearly over! This probaby has been the fastest year of my life. It was pretty much a whirlwind. So much happened this year too:
1. My sister joined the army and moved to Germany

2. My mom randomly ran off with a guy to Arizona

3. I figured out that my dad hangs out with people my age and parties WAY more than me.

4. I GRADUATED COLLEGE!!!! (that math degree is doing me a lot of good)

5. Basically everybody I know got engaged,except me of course!

6. I found an awesome roommate. She is a crazy canadian, but she is the best roommate I haveever had.

7. Napolean Dynamite was released...what an amazing movie.

8. I had to get a real job :( I love my job, I just hate working at a set time EVERY day.

9. I discovered is the best stuff ever! It is a mixture of Vodka and fig juices at a 20% alcohol volume. It is a German drink, so it is not readily available here. You can buy it here, and a girl from Finland introduced Kristin, Miguel, and I to it, and I have been hooked on it ever since.. They only serve it had the Vogue so I have had an increased desire to go there.

that is just some of the events of 2004..of course there are more things that happened..some more significant than these..but lets keep it light!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!
note: the events are not in chronological order.

So my friend Wertzy came over last night. I havent seen him in a while, so that was really cool. He is a friend of my mine from the 1 semester I spent in good old Shelbyville, IN my freshman year of high school. That has almost been eight years so it is crazy that I even keep in contact with him. He gets to my house and he is wearing a blue shirt that looks very Star Trekky to me...Funny thing is he hadn't even noticed that it looked like a Star Trek shirt. He said now all he could do was think about that. I got out the aluminum foil so we could make him a communicator badge. I think it turned out pretty good. This picture is hilareous! Who knew I would have friends that dress like Star Trek people..I havent even seen any of the original ones I don't think. Oh well! This is the best. Enjoy!

My mom came into town from arizona for Christmas...she had dinner with me tonight at my apartment. I am surprised she agreed to come to my side of town. One of the Christmas presents she got me was a melted snowman. At first I thought it was a broken snowglobe because the first thing I saw was a little carrot nose. What it is is a little snow globe looking thing full of water with little snowman parts floating around. (a hat, a carrot nose, some coal) I left it in my car, and it froze. So now, I have a frozen melted snowman. It is just a block of ice with snowman parts. Kind of funny. How grotesque is that anyway? Who wants to think about a melted frosty?

I have a blog!

I have decided to create a blog. Too much has been making me mad lately and I just need somewhere to go with it, so enjoy! This is the day after Christmas now, and I am just randomly staying up all night..woohoo. Since this is my first post... I amgoing to share with you some random things.
*Yesterday I went to the Pistons/Pacers game. It was a good game, too bad the Pacers lost. That makes me sad. It was a pretty emotionally charged game. There was a guy sitting a few rows in front of us wearing a shirt saying "The world needs Jesus, We have Jesus, so let's show Jesus to the world." Let me tell you about how he "showed Jesus to the world." He was a Pistons fan, and he trashed talked the whole entire game. Somebody in the crowd yelled "hey, Jesus wants you to shut up!" What a great witness that was, huh? That really drives me nuts! Grrrr! Out of our whole entire section, the guy wearing the Jesus shirt was the biggest trash talker. Wow! and some Christians wonder why people hate Christianity!
*I was bored last night, so I decided to go make some noise in a Christian chat room. Sometimes that is really fun to do. We had some interesting conversations. Much debating was going on. I am going to share with you one funny comment a girl made. I asked what everybody thought about cussing, and it seemed like the main theme that came out of it was that God wants us to build people up and not tear them down and cuss words tear people down. So I asked if I think something is really cool can I say "that's the shit" because in essence I am not tearing anything down. Here is the kicker: this girl replies with "no, but you can say crap." I then come back with "so can I say you are full of crap"? because to me that sounds worse. She didnt seem to think that was wrong because I wasnt using an actual "cuss word." Another guy told me that the only reason why I cuss is because I am imitating what my parents did when I was younger. The funny thing is I have never ever heard either of my parents cuss. I didn't even know any cuss words until I started going to a public school in 4th grade, so that was a funny comment to make. Another guy said I wouldn't cuss if I had self-control. I NEVER CUSS!!! It is not even in my vocabulary! I get made fun of when I cuss because I sound funny. Apparently I sound too happy. Instead of giving me their input on cussing, it became a "lets cleanse rose of her obvious cussing sin." It was definately a room full of fundies..haha!

That is about all I have to say for my first post..if anybody does read this, I hope you enjoy!
