OMGZ!!!!!11!!SNOWZ [22 Dec 2008|11:29pm]
[ mood | cold ]

So it's been awhile since I've posted in here and since I've been trapped in the house for a week due to SNOWPOCALYPSE 2008 aka ARTIC BLAST, it seemed like the perfect time.

It all started last Sunday. We got about 2" of snow and the news made it out to be something horrible. Portland seems to shut down as soon as the first flake arrives. Little did we all know that is would be the beginning of the biggest snow storm since 1968. It snowed a little off and on that week, but it was this past Saturday 12/20 that a blizzard hit the Portland area. It continued to snow in Portland through Sunday and today (Monday) we woke up to 4" more of snow. In total the Gresham area got about 18" total of snow on the ground, and up to 8ft snow drifts in some places. The airport canceled tons of flights, max lines were frozen and buses barely made it around the city. I've missed almost a week of work, as I commute from Gresham to Tigard and it hs been virtually impossible to get there. I have a feeling I won't be back at work till after Christmas. Apparently there are 2 more storms brewing. I hope our house doesn't cave in.

i never told you this
but a thousand
times a day, i listened
to you sing
and even though i told
you to stop
it was my favorite time
to be alive

sick note for work [29 Sep 2007|12:37pm]
I have to get a doctor's note because I've missed three days of work now. Problem is I have no insurance, no money and I have the FLU which everyone knows the doctor can do nothing about.

First of all, where can I see a doctor on the weekend? and is there anywhere that is relatively cheap and WILL give me a note? I feel like I have to pay $100 for a note, which I think is wrong. Any way around getting a full check up for a note?

Post Office [28 Jul 2006|07:10am]
So I'm off to my Post Office interview. Probably the most important interview I've ever had. This determines pretty much my life for awhile. It's a steady job with good pay and I won't have to waste money going to school. Someday I'd still like to pursue a culinary degree and/or something in the food industry. But I believe for now this is the very best thing for me. Wish me luck.

Arghh [26 Apr 2006|05:00pm]
I really want to travel. It's been on my mind lately a lot, with no help from people around me who seem to be traveling everywhere.

Places I'd like to go...

France (Provence, Paris, St Helene)
New York

Of course there are an infinate number of places I'd like to go, but these are my top picks. I'm hoping to start off with Canada and Seattle. It's quite sad that I live in the NW and have never been to Seattle. I have to end this blasphemy.

more coffee [14 Jan 2006|04:39pm]
[ mood | blank ]

so i started working at coffee people on thursday. so far i like it. the manager is cool and i made $13 dollars in 4 hours today! i never used to make anything like that at seattle's best. i think it's mainly because of the drive thru. i feel like i don't really deserve those tips, but i guess everyone is working together. i dread drive thru by the way. i'll make it though. i don't really have a choice.

[ mood | nauseated ]

i hate my life right now. starbucks is an absoulte nightmare. i wish i had never left seattle's best. that was probably one of my favorite jobs that i've ever had. it was annoying at times, but jobs aren't perfect. i'm so stupid. i wish more than anything i could go back to work there, but i know i can't. i'm looking for another job, so i can get out of starbucks. the managers there are rude to me. the employees treat me like i don't even know what coffee is. it's dirty. they make shitty drinks. the guys their make vulgar comments. i just can't take it.

i guess we'll see. if it doesn't work out and i don't find another job - i may have to move back home. i don't want to do that to erin though. she moved here for me, so she needs a place to stay. i doubt her idea of freedom and moving on her own would include living with my parents. how fun. we'd have no alone time. it'd be torture for us as a couple.

my only hope is that i find something else fast, because myself inside is too weak to take the crap at starbucks. i just don't know what i am going to find that will make me happy.

I really hope Erin decides to go to California for Christmas break. I'm secretly hoping I will get to take a trip to California too. (...dreams of the sunny weather) ^_^

Speaking of her, I miss my baby a lot.

long time [16 Aug 2005|10:09pm]
I never update my journal anymore, because I'm never alone. I hate the feeling of people watching me type out what's in my head. I've been moved out for almost a month now. There are certain parts about it that I like, but I really miss home. If it weren't for Erin, I don't know what I'd do. I love her so much. She is what keeps me going, if anything. I've felt pretty crappy lately. I feel like I can't even count on the people I though I could trust. People I've known all my life, who are very important to me.

I think they are back...

Now it's time for SIN CITY! =)Oh, and I have to finish making le dinner.

what does kimberly listen to? =) [06 Jul 2005|09:38pm]
* arcade fire, 'Funeral' - weird lyrics + instrumental backgrounds = good, in my book.

* belle and sebastian, 'If You're Feeling Sinister' - toe-tapping, soft spoken goodness.

* elliott smith, 'Either/Or' - elliott's music is beautiful, complex, thoughtful, poignant and just wonderful.

* magnetic fields, 'i' - quirky, irreverent, funny, melodic.

* phoenix, 'Alphabetical' - quirky, electronic glittery and shiny. not a lot of depth, but if you feel like a good shimmy...

* pinback, 'Summer in Abaddon' - i love this album. the melodies are catchy, the songs are just plain good.

* the sea and cake, 'Oui' - relaxing and instrumentally-driven.

Usually I don't buy CDs, but I've found these to be worth the money.
So, support these starving millionaire musicians. Be a capitalistic whore, spend, buy, listen, and enjoy!

it's so wierd how a smell, a thought, or even a memory can evoke such strong feelings. it makes me sad, because i miss them.

i never write in this thing anymore. i still have my job at the coffee snob. i took the post office test, hopefully something becomes of that. i'm trying to get my money in order, but i'm finding it more difficult than ever.

my plan is to move out by the beginning of july. it's really not a choice, so i need to buckle down. i put about $175 in my savings today. i got $275 on my check, but a bunch of that went towards the phone bill.
that stupid phone bill, cingular sucks.
