it's not about you, it's about what flows through you
Since everyone seems to be updating about their experience in Vegas, thought I would be like the "cool kids" and do the same : p
Ride up to Vegas : /
Arrived in Vegas Friday night at 8:00 and afte parking and issues with our room we didnt actually get into our room until 9:45

We finally got to our room and were getting ready to meet up with everyone when J realizes his brand new Apple laptop is not in the room with us. I guess with all our bags and issues going on trying to get the room he put it down and forgot to pick it up. Talk about shity, Johnnie was ready to go right back to S.D. after that. We called security and luckily they had his laptop so all was right with the world after we got downstairs and retrieved it. Dropped the laptop off in the room and headed out to Quarks to meet up with Dan, Rosa and Carley. The bar had last call at 11pm (WTF?) which ended up working out since everyone (minus us) were pretty toasty by this time. Headed over to MGM and met up with Kelly, Steve and thier party and soon after that called it a night. 

Saturday was the big day: : ) Kelly and Steve's wedding was really beautiful and yes I cried (who'd of thought that would be such a big deal?) Seeing my best friend so happy was a fucking awesome thing and I lose my shit whenever something life changing happens to someone I'm close to.  I'm a sap like that, never claimed I wasn't. 
The dinner consisted of some of the best food I have ever had and I need to learn how to make lobster cheese cake!  I wish I would of been sitting next to Dan so I could of snagged what he didnt want ;p  After dinner we all headed up to the suite to celebrate with the Kramers and met up with Dan, Rosa and Carley with Raniey and Eric in tow after that ;p It was a good day and I'm happy J and I got to be there.

Sunday Johnnie and I hit up the Rio for food and then bailed back to S.D. Ride home from vegas  : /  We were in traffic pretty much the entire time. We got to Kelly and Steve's around 10ish to pick up their keys and after dropping the rental off at Avis we were done. I need a vacation from my vacation damn it. All in all the weekend was great and I really miss my friends who no longer live in S.D. One weekend chillin' with everyone wasn't enough as the weekend just seem to fly by waaaay to fast.

I went to my interview today for the office manager position. I think I have a good shot at getting it and I go in for an adjustment (the position is at a chiropractic office) on Monday  so hopefully I  will find something out by then. If I dont get it at least I got hooked up with a free consultation because Im pretty much over  the pinched nerve inbetween my shoulder blades and it can go bye- bye at anytime now.
Picked Nemie up from the vet and he is at home in my room recooporating. He can't go back in his cage with Spooky until they remove his stiches which wont be for another two weeks. His little arm is shaved and his tail is a few centimeters shorter now :( I'm just hoping that his results come back negative for cancer.  Work is sloooow so I am hoping to get off early so I can check on Nemie and also go spend time with my boy who is home sick.
I'll update more later....

Just got a call from my vet and Nemis made it through his surgery. He had a growth on his tail that needed removal and they wanted to clean his teeth while he was under as well. I was worried since he is older and they actually had to remove the part of his tail where the growth was. Fortunetly the tumor was at the tip so they only had to amputate that area.  Yay! I get to pick him up tomarow after my interview.  Now all I need is for the pinched nerve in my back to go away and all will be right with the world :D

Erin invited me over last night to partake in some Anime with him and a few friends but I had to decline due to no free time. Working and going to school bites the big one. My schedule Monday thru Thursday consists of going to work, going to school, coming home and chillin for an hour or two before going to bed so I can wake up and do it all over again.  Things at the home front arent the greatest right now so in a way it is kind good to be away but damn, sometimes you just want to chill the fuck out. : /
I am looking forward to a weekend of relaxing, sleeping in and hopefully a sushi date with triptogn and kawaiikelly since we couldn't meet up last weekend. some friends of the family are having a get together on Saturday so we might be hititng that up as well.  In a couple of Saturdays I want to hit up this:http://www.nocturnalwonderland.com/nw_2006/
You know what they say........work hard, play harder.

Go here: http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3, look through the quotations until you find some that you think reflect "who you are" or "what you believe." Repost in your journal

Risk! Risk anything! Care no more for the opinions of others, for those voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.
Katherine Mansfield (1888 - 1923)

You must dare to disassociate yourself from those who would delay your journey... Leave, depart, if not physically, then mentally. Go your own way, quietly, undramatically, and venture toward trueness at last.
Vernon Howard 

The universe seems wondrous to me, with or without God. It has powerful lines and uncompromising ways. Patience and time sit like sages on the planets, strong and impersonal. There is a stark beauty to all of this.  - Real Live Preacher

There are two kinds of light--the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures. 
James Thurber (1894 - 1961)

Anger is never without Reason, but seldom with a good One.
Benjamin Franklin (1706 - 1790) 

Life is an unbroken succession of false situations.
Thornton Wilder (1897 - 1975)

The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be.
Oprah Winfrey 

Never get angry. Never make a threat. Reason with people.
Mario Puzo (1920 - 1999),

Work has finally slowed down since my files from HELL are finally moving their way off my desk and out of my sight for good. In trying to kill some time I read an article on the eating disorder known as "Pica"  

Not really interested in have the childrens but it was pretty interesting (and a bit creepy).

Its only the middle of the week and I'm already antsy for the weekend. That alone is a big motivator for me to knock out school and get my degree. I cant wait until I am able to make a living doing something I want to do rather than something I HAVE to do.  To quote Aesop Roc " we the American working population hate the fact that eight hours a day Is wasted on chasing the dream of someone that isn't us and we may not hate our jobs but we hate jobs in general that dont have to do with fighting our own causes"  - yup, thats where I'm at :) Not hating so much as just waiting until school is over. I think I just need a change in enviorment as a whole (I know I've said this before). I guess I am a somewhat high maintanence person in the sense that I need change every so often (according to Johnnie at least). He can be happy doing the same thing day after day where  I on the other hand need variety. I don't think I need much, just a change in scenery at least once  during the week. If  not, I start feeling like  I am merely existing and not really living. Ah maybe I should just cave in and play W.O.W or Oblivian, seems to be the "cure all" for needing any outside stimulie other than a computer;p
