Past due

I once was told that when starting a blog there are a few underlying rules to follow, the main one being that you must updated it weekly. In that case, maybe I wasn't meant to be a blogger. I realized I've been neglecting writing blog entries that update all of my five readers, on some form of excitement, newly discovered knowledge, or funny happenings that occur in the life of a college student. So, as I sit on my couch, drinking vitamin water, patiently waiting for the Advil PM to kick in, I begin my past due entry. As the months quickly pass by, and my college days quickly come to an end, I'm realizing I'm quickly beginning to feel lost in each step I take towards my future endeavors. Where do I go after graduation? If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears. As of lately, I feel this responsibility as the youngest child to take care of my parents, meaning I'd have to stay in Utah. The first part doesn't seem so bad. My parents have raised me well for the past 22 years, and I will gladly take over taking care of them. But somehow, I need to find a way to get them out of Utah, somewhere near the ocean. And, now that the Advil has kicked in, and my eyes are begging to droop, I'll contemplate where my future will take me. I'll let my dreams of the night carry me away into that fantasy world that seems to take over me each times I close my eyes and lay myself down to sleep. Sweet dreams.

Isn't that interesting...

...I really do belong in California. Seven hours of work in one day is more than I can handle, hence, I do stupid quizzes online to pass the time. Ironic that it tells me to go back to San Diego? I think not!

You Belong in San Diego

Laid back and friendly, you were meant to live most of your life on the beach.
You usually think everything is "all good"... except when the weather dips under 60F.
You stay classy - especially when you're in Tijuana!

Useful tricks

I guess if you have problems with, reading people's mail, slipping on the ice, blood, stains, and ants, the following will be very helpful. I thought they were kind of interesting.

A sealed envelope - Put it in the freezer for a few hours, then slide a
Knife under the flap. The envelope can then be resealed.
(I guess this is useful if you want to open someone's letter and you don't want them to know.)

For icy door steps in freezing temperatures: get warm water and put
Dawn dish washing liquid in it. Pour it all over the steps. They won't
Refreeze. (This might come in handy!)

Crayon marks on walls? This worked wonderfully! A damp rag, dipped
In baking soda. Comes off with little effort. (For when you have children, unless adults have a tendency to write on the walls.)

Blood stains on clothes? Not to worry! Just pour a little hydrogen
Peroxide on a cloth and proceed to wipe off every drop of blood. Works
Every time! (Now, where to put the body?) LOL

Place fabric softener sheets in dresser drawers and your clothes will
Smell freshly washed for weeks to come. You can also do this with towels
And linen .

To easily remove burnt on food from your skillet , simply add a drop or
Two of dish soap and enough water to cover bottom of pan, and bring to
a boil on stove top.

Spray your TUPPERWARE with nonstick cooking spray before pouring
In tomato based sauces and there won't be any stains.

When boiling corn on the cob, add a pinch of sugar to help bring out the
Corn's' natural sweetness

Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half, and rub it on your
Forehead. The throbbing will go away. ( This might have to become a new everyday ritual if it actually works.)

Ants, ants, ants everywhere ..
Well, they are said to never cross a chalk
Line. So, get your chalk out and draw a line on the floor or wherever ants
Tend to march. See for yourself.
