God made him simple. Science made him a god.

OK so this isn't a regular post for me but I have to ask:

I'm totally re-doing my moms flower garden because a nasty groundcover weed has basically taken it over. I was out there digging this morning but the roots to the thing are way to massive I can't get it all out of the ground. I would just use a heavy weed killer but there is a rose bush in the area.

So what should I do? How do I get rid of the weed, preferably permanently, without hurting the rosebush?

Please help,
Jen

We where mearly freshman

I forgot! I forgot!

I forgot to tell yall that I have changed my major yet again :/
This time I will be studying Anthropology and religion. I decided to ditch the history thing because the history department didn't have what I was looking for (ancient civilizations) but the anthropology department does!!!!! YAY! I'm still not sure what I wan't to be when I grow up...maybe an archeologist, or something. Anyways so yeah, I need to change my blog heading and stuff.

Don't forget to guess the quote.....or do forget, I don't care either way.

You owe me a new acorn

So my life is finally getting situated and back to normal. I usually deal halfway decent with change and transitions, but this time there was so much stuff to be done that I had to prioritize and as a result I made my blog a very low priority.

Good news! I now have internet access at home and so I will officially resume regular posting on my blog as of.....now. A few things of business though: I'm not going to finish writng about my spring break trip unless I am begged and pleaded....Spring break was a few months ago and I would rather write about things somewhat in the now. The only thing importaint from that you need to know is that Charles and I broke up and I am now dating the perfect guy; his name is Jake and he is perfect. :-)

The next item of business is I will start (eventually but not today) trying to finish my blog layout and get my links working on it. I know it's all shitty, but thats why I belong to the shitty blogs club....right?

The final item of business is I am starting a quote guessing thing. A lot of my post titals are from movies, books, songs and no one ever says anything about them :/ Well, maybe I can find a program that would keep a running tab on how many people guess the quote right and then you can have bragging rights or something. I would give actual prizes but I have no money or anything prize worthy really. So go ahead and start guessing...todays post tital is a quote!

Love,
Jen

Workin' at the car wash

School is over!
I'm out of the dorm!
I'm back home :/

It's been crazy, I don't remember having so much stuff but when I tried to move back into my bedroom at my mom's house nothing fit the way it used to. So, I have been deep cleaning my room and the spare bedroom wich we are turning into an office. I finally got my room all situated yesterday and we are going to have a humungous garage sale this weekend to get rid of all the stuff that literally won't fit in the rooms....G-d I feel so materialistic sometimes.

I got my grades back. I won't post them because I'm pissed off about them, but I at least have a high enough GPA to keep my scholarship. But my UNM GPA is still lower than I have ever had in my life and it sucks....

Now the goal is to find a job for the summer. I need a job so I can get a car so I can go to school in the fall. If not, then I'm screwed! There is a couple places within walking distance from my moms house and there is also a mall I can kind of hike to. The bus service on this side of town sucks so getting anywhere by bus is nearly impossible. For those of you who don't know Albuquerque is really spread out and it takes forever to get anywhere and the roads/mass transportation systems really suck so your pretty much stuck to a small area of where you can walk to unless you live downtown.

Sorry for the negative mood of this post. It's hot and I can't sleep. We don't have the air conditoner on yet and I'm dying of heat. I'll post more later.

Finals

Just a note to let everyone know that I won't be updating this for a while. I have finals all next week so I need to study for them. I also have to move back to my moms house (who conveniently doesn't have internet access) by Thursday the 12 or 13th or whatever date it is. I'll try to write out my posts and then just type them up whenever I get a chance until I can beg my mom to get internet again....or when I get a job to pay for it.

Anyways, wish me luck on my finals and I'll keep yall updated as much as I can.

Salut!

Snow...

I just love New Mexico's weather.
So here it is May, tempatures are usually in the low 80's and it's bright and sunny out. Thats how it was last month anyways. I got all my short skirts, T-shirts, and tank tops out...well, I pulled those out in March, but still if it has been that warm since March you would think that today would be no differant right?
Nope.
It's decided to snow in northern New Mexico and Santa Fe (which is 1/2 hour away from Albuquerque) has a slight chance of getting a few flurries. Up north has 5 to 10 inches of snow already and they could get more. It's like, um yeah...they closed the ski resorts a long time ago....it shouldn't be alowed to snow. I hate snow.
Well, I don't always hate snow, just freak snow storms.

Ceasars Bath Meme (revised and completed)

Behold, the Caesar's Bath meme! List five things that people in your circle of friends or peer group are wild about, but you can't really understand the fuss over. To use the words of Caesar (from History of the World Part I): “Nice. Nice. Not thrilling… but nice.”

1. Usher- Why does everyone like Usher? He isn't the greatest singer, he only has one verse and then sings the chorus "over and over again" and thats it! He annoys me.

2.Reality TV shows- Including but not limited to Fear Factor, Survivor, Bachlorette, Who Wants to Marry My Dad and various other stupid over-dramatized shows. This does not include QESG or home makeover shows like Trading Spaces (at least those shows are doing things to better other people, not to see who can eat the most brown lacruse spiders).

3. Radio Station flippers- This only bugs me when I am driving. I think the driver should get to decide what music to listen too and it just annoys me when I'm driving and someone, not mentioning any names (Jeremy and Crystal) change the radio station fifty million times a minute. I feel like installing an electric shock thing into the radio so everytime they touch it they will shock themselves. (Although knowing Jere and Crys they'd enjoy it).

4.Putting tuition on your credit card- This one is pretty self explanitory. I just don't understand why someone would do it. But please feel free to enlighten me.

5. Clubing- I've been to one, but don't understand the whole concept of dancing, getting drunk, dancing more, and then ending up sleeping with someone you don't know. True, thats just the stereotype of clubs but still, the drinks are way to expensive for a poor college student, the guys when I went weren't that cute and the music wasn't the best.

can you tell me how to get to sesame street?

The protest was actually Saturday, not Friday. I was missinformed by NBC (what else is new?). Anyways, I'm not mad about it any more. They had like 12 people there and it seemed really stupid and pointless. If you want the recap of it go to a-[e]'s blog http://www.anti-everything.us/weblog/ he took pictures even elmo showed up! You can also read about it in the daily lobo...they have a close up picture of two guys kissing in front of the protesters http://www.dailylobo.com/ (you'll need to search for the Monday 25th article if your reading this any other day).

Even though I think these people might actually be pure evil, or at least really misguided a guy named Jacob Phelps quoted in the daily lobo actually said something very profound almost, and theologically deep. He said "god is hate, he's everything." Thats a very philosophical Taoist aproach to what the Tao is, just said with the word "god" instead of Tao. The only problem is that Taoists would say something like "The Tao is hate, but the Tao is pure love." Or something like that to help recognize not only the duality of yin and yang but to show that the Tao is everything, both good and bad.

Ok, I'm shutting up now!

By our love

"They will know we are Christians by our love..." I learned that song in the third grade when I made my first holy communion in the Catholic Church. Thinking about it though....what love? I'm not saying ALL Christians hare hatefull, but many of them have, in my opinion lost site of what it really means to be a Christian.

Today the godhatesfags.com group is comming to UNM. I'm pissed as hell. Although the LGBTQ group is flattered that we would be recognized for our diversity (which is such an awesome approach in my opinion) I can't help but look at the situation in a differant way. These people are supposed to be Christians and when you think of Christians used to anyways you would think of "love". The kind of love that Jesus taught us to have. But now everyone goes around saying "G-d hates___ " you can fill in the blank there are plenty of things that G-d hates according to Christians. G-d hates homosexuals, pornography, gambling, alcohol, prostitutes, sinners etc...

But what or who does G-d love? People don't go around saying "G-d loves____" no of couse not! That would give people the chance to move around to boast in the pride that G-d loves them, to give them a chance to break through the conformity of the Christian group.

I'm not Catholic anymore, but I still hold some kind of wierd twisted respect for the Church because I did grow up in it and it is the church my family went to. True, they have there faults and it depends on what congregation you go to but I do know that my priest never said that G-d hated anyone except for people who act like they know exactly what G-d likes and doesn't like as if they sat down and had coffeee with him last Tuesday.

So yeah, after godhatesfags.com gets through saving "fag infested" UNM they are off to Santa Fe...They are going to picket right in front of the CATHEDRAL. Pisses me off....thats such an awesome cathedral in Santa Fe's plaza. After that they are going to the other Cathedral with the spiral staircase. Grrrrr not only do they insult my best friends and family for being gay, but then they go and insult the rest of my Catholic family.

I promised Jake I wouldn't get involved so I am just gonna sit here and bitch about it :-)

Here is the song:

We are one in the Spirit,We are one in the Lord,
We are one in the Spirt,We are one in the Lord,
And we pray that all unity may one day be restored.

Refrain
And they'll know we are Christians by our love,by our love,
Yes, they'll know we are Christians by our love.

We will walk with each other,We will walk hand in hand,
We will walk with each other,We will walk hand in hand,
And together we'll spread the news that God is in our land.

[repeat refrain]

We will work with each other,We will work side by side,
We will work with each other,We will work side by side,
And we'll guard each one's dignity and save each one's pride.

[repeat refrain]

All praise to the Fa-ther, From whom all things come,
And all praise to Christ Jesus,His only Son,
And all praise to the Spirit,who makes us one.

Still to come...

This post is more for me so I will have a checklist of the things I want to write about. (Not includeing random blurbs I might add in-between, and I am still working on my blog template).

So yeah, who knew it would take me over a month just to write about one week. In other unrelated to spring break news...I am trying to finish a book called "The Pacific War 1931-1945" By Saburo Ienaga about the Japanese involvement in WW1 and WW2. Then I have to read "In the Realm of a Dying Emperor" by Norma Field so that I can write an essay on the militarism and patriotism in Japanese society. That is due April 29th. I guess I should get back to it.

TTFN!

Ceasar's bath meme

I was hit with a meme! Actually, I'm really excited because this is the first meme that anyone has ever asked me to participate in :-) Mr. Shawn Campbell (whose link isn't fixed yet on my side bar...www.shawncampbell.com) asked me to do this so here it is:

Behold, the Caesar's Bath meme! List five things that people in your circle of friends or peer group are wild about, but you can't really understand the fuss over. To use the words of Caesar (from History of the World Part I): “Nice. Nice. Not thrilling… but nice.”

This is just a rough draft...I still need to think about it

1. Usher- Why does everyone like Usher? He isn't the greatest singer, he only has one verse and then sings the chorus "over and over again" and thats it! He annoys me.

2. Reality TV shows- Not like QESG but shows like "Survivor" or "The Bachelorette". "Fear Factor" is totally discusting and I just don't get what is so appealing about these shows that are tottally stupid.

3. Piercings- I'm cool with just about any body piercing except those guys who get those really big disk thingies in there ears. They cover up practically half their ears and not only does it look painfull, but it makes them look like aliens or something.

4. Putting tuition on your credit card- This one is pretty self explanitory.

5. I can't think of a 5th one so I'll update tomorrow with my final draft for this.
