Been absent

I have not been on WordPress for a while because I have not been following a nutrition or juicing plan, and this was suppose to be a blog about juicing. I have been walking quite a bit. My hiking has stopped because it has been storming here quite a bit and the trails have been flooding.

I have been working on getting my financial aid from Suffolk. I still have not heard anything! Every time I get something turned in they tell me I need another form or I need another institution to fax them something! So annoying. I am going to call them again tomorrow after I fax in yet ANOTHER form which they said they didn’t have yet I already faxed it and printed a communication journal from the fax machine and it said it came through okay. Grrrrrrr.

Good news is, I think I found roommates. That makes me excited. I have to Skype them tomorrow to see if they like me. Wish me luck! I hope they like me!!!!!!!

I am still in love with the show Hannibal. It is amazing.

Today I took lamps home from the hotel. I took three. The base of them are metal, very baroque. I wish the new renovated lamps were up for grabs. The new ones are beautiful. Black and sleek. I need to buy new shades for my new lamps. I am only keeping one for a desk lamp at school then giving two to my parents. I don’t think they need lamps, but who doesn’t need high quality hotel lamps. They are super dusty, like housekeeping hasn’t dusted them since they were put in the hotel¬†6 years ago.

Speaking of the hotel, I have had an amazing week at work. Just a lot of fun, laughing, a good time. I haven’t had a week like this for a long time. It has been super awesome!

Cameron is leaving in early July which makes me sad. He is awesome and I will miss him being my security guard. He is going to be with his girl in Michigan and then go to school in the fall for psychology. I did tell him last night, if you get a general psychology degree you may want to think of specializations or graduate school since bachelor psychology degrees are very popular and the job market is very competitive. He is a very smart kid though and I am sure he has a plan. A very old soul as some hippie would say.

A stupid thing happened yesterday. My electric was turned off!! So, my bill said delinquent AFTER the 17th, and I got paid on the 18th, so I thought, not a big deal. One day after. Nope. They turned it off ON the 17th. I paid it in the early AM of the 18th and they turned it back on about 9 AM this morning, but still! I went from 10 AM-9PM in my home without electricity. Luckily I had a battery powered “torch” that also has a radio in it, so I just listened to the radio…in the dark…..then got ready to go in very dim light for work. It was also very hot because I had no air conditioning.

I am road tripping to Louisville tomorrow with the boy. Should be a good time. Then we are coming back to STL. ūüôā

I move out of my place on July 14th. I will be living with my buddy Jessie until August 20th. Then stay with my mom for about a week because she is not taking this “Storm moves to Boston” thing well. I will be back in January for a wedding, so it’s technically only a few months and we’ll see each other about as much as we do now that I live in STL. It’s¬†just I won’t¬†be able to drive home when dealing with breakups or financial difficulties. We¬†all have to grow up sometime. I have been telling¬†her, “Plus! You can visit me in awesome BOSTON!”¬†Moms will be moms.

 

Committed

I watched a 90’s movie called “Committed” last night. I had another very BLEH day, go figure. So it was a movie and hot pockets for me.

Oh, the 90's. And that is her ring finger.

Oh, the 90’s. And that is her ring finger.

Committed is about a woman who is very dedicated to her marriage vows, or, hence the title, committed. So¬†committed, in fact, she follows her husband from NYC to Texas to help him because the vows say “in good times and in bad.” The way she finds him is through some sort of universe voo-doo and kind of loses me here, but she finds him. She soon discovers he is not only improving his photography career but starting a whole new life, which includes dating other women. She is pretty much stalking him at this point. Jolene decides, screw it, he is just in a “spiritual wheelchair” and needs to be stuck by. She becomes friends with everyone in his life, including the mistress who had no idea about Jolene. There is a bunch of sitting outside his trailer, young Benicio Del Toro hitting on her, she does more voo-doo? It’s kind of weird. Then she is, well, committed to a psych ward where she looks deep down and decides it is better to leave the husband, who by the way is played by Luke Wilson, and go back to NYC and start her life over. Casey Affleck is in there too for some comic relief as her brother, he marries the husband’s girlfriend. I give this movie a B-. I do love the straight from the 90’s looks though. Red pleather pants and mid drifts. Ahhhh, the 90’s, when everyone seemed to just not give a crap about what they wore.

Why am I down now you may ask. Well, I am very worried about my financial aid for school. Also, I will make this the summer of major changes if I don’t get to go to school this year. Quitting my job, moving, all sorts of things. I feel like I have been stagnant for 3 years, even though I have done quite a bit of traveling. Stagnant though, stagnant.

I am going on a hike today, the weather isn’t suppose to get bad, but it will be up in the 80’s, which is hot for me so I have to bring lots and lots of water! I am not a hot weather person. I am planning on 14 miles. I want to head out of my apartment to buy food for it in about an hour. Look forward to another hiking post later today.

Also, NBC, if you’re reading which I doubt, I love Hannibal! It is the best new show you’ve come up with in a long time. DO NOT CANCEL THIS SHOW!

Hannibal the Cannibal!

First day of juicing down. Yay! I am not nearly as hungry as I was the last time I started juicing. Probably because my juices focus on veggie’s way more now. I think those fill you up and give you more energy, while the fruit based ones give you sugar highs.

Here is a breakdown of my juices.

Juice 1: 2 kale leaves, 1 orange, and 1 small cucumber. This juice was so energizing. I drank it at 9:30 PM and had great energy til 1:30 AM and my next juice. It also tasted very yummy.

Juice 2: 1 kale leaf, 2 cups spinach, 1 apple,  3 carrots, broccoli and 1 whole celery stalk. Juice was good considering I hate celery juice! I barely tasted it though. Again, energizing, filling, lasted til my last juice at 6:15 AM.

Juice 3: 1 cup spinach, 3 carrots, 1 whole celery stalk, broccoli and an orange.  Tasted good, I was walking home and finishing it. That was nice. I love walking home to decompress at the end of a hard shift, which last night was. About midway through the shift I wished I had started juicing on Sunday so I could be stress eating. But I stood strong.

Last night wouldn’t have been bad except all these drunk tearing up the lobby and one group on the 8th floor who were part of a frat and assholes. I almost kicked a room of them out. Three noise complaints on them, three! They had the gall to say “It wasn’t us.” Then the whole “I wasn’t even in my room! It was someone else.” Listen buddy, you are responsible for anyone you let in your room. I can’t help you have bad taste in friends. Ack, I didn’t kick them out though, because that would have resulted in an issue with the whole frat and they had 17 rooms, I honestly did not want to deal with that. I used this threat “Okay, you can stay, but one complaint, on ANY of the rooms, the whole Frat is leaving.” They agreed and settled down. Well, settle is relative, they all came downstairs and were really loud.

I never understood Frat and Sororities anyway. To me it seems like it is saying, If you pay your dues you will have friends. Oh yeah, and we’re going to judge you, maybe abuse you¬†before we let you join.

Then there was another group of drunkies that were there for a bridal shower. One of them took a bag of popcorn and just flung it EVERYWHERE! Dicks.

There were some drunkie’s that really just sat in one spot and drank beer for at least 8 hours, maybe more. They were down there when my security guard Cameron arrived at 7 PM and went to bed at 3 AM. They were fine except they left a mess. Bitches.

That was work. I had to yell at some college kids and clean for a couple hours.

I want to tell you guys about my TV habits, what I like and a brand new show I love.

I watch a lot of comedies, The Office, The Mindy Show, Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, and Bob’s Burgers. I also love Law and Order: SVU. I don’t know why I do, I just do. Some of my favorite drama’s are Breaking Bad, Weeds, The Tudors, Once Upon a Time, Lost, and The United States of Tara.

The new show that I am absolutely in love with is Hannibal on NBC. They really have hit it out of the park with this show. I mean, the writing is great, it is shot very well, the characters are interesting, I can’t wait to see more.

The basic plot is Hannibal Lector is helping Will Grant with his mental state while Will is solving psychopathic murders. Will has Asperger’s, I think, it may be autism,¬†and such a vivid imagination¬†he can actually picture the crime as it took place and it¬†has a pretty¬†deep effect on¬†his psyche. That’s where Lector comes in, providing some psychiatric treatment to¬†Will. ¬†¬†It does take place in present day, so there are Ipads and modern crime solving technology. Hannibal is actually played by an old Bond villain, and he is awesome, Mads Mikkelsen. Will Grant is skillfully played by Hugh Dancy. Also, the way it is shot kind of reminds me of CSI, but a much darker CSI.¬† I would check it out if you like dark thrillers. Be warned, much blood and gore.
