Lately i have been reading because yes i don't go to school anymore so instead of reading textbooks like the past 4years i have moved
on to literature. Right now I am reading "Between a rock and a hard place". Its the book about the man( aron) who was hiking in moab and a boulder fell on his arm and in order to survive he cut his arm off. A film was produced about Aron's experience, its called 127(here for trailer) i have been looking forward to seeing this for about a month maybe more. But yes the reader inside me told me to read the book first. So here i am reading it. The following quote is from this amazing book. Aron is actually quoting a passage from another book, "Into the wild".

"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. the joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have and endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and difference sun."
I have always had a love and passion for adventure especially for the to say the least this is a huge motivator for me!!! Be happy and live life!

a comment from my great friend Calab! Some asked him some questions which got him to thinking about the following:

1: When people point to their wrist when they ask you what time it is. I know where my freaking watch is pal, where is yours. When I go to Wal-mart, I don't point at my crotch when I'm asking for the bathroom.
‎2: People who are willing to get off the arse to search an entire room for the remote control when they could have just as easily pushed the buttons on the TV in half of the time.
3: When people say, "It's the last place you look." NO SHIT SHERLOCK!!! Why the freak would you keep looking after you found it. Do people actually do this?! Who are they?
‎4: When you go to the movies and your friend leans over and says, "OMG did you just see that?!" No idiot... I just paid 8.50 to sit in a dark room with uncomfortable seats and stare into the back of my eyelids.
‎5: When people ask, "Can I ask you a question?" Didn't give me much of a choice on that one did you sunshine?
‎6: Ads that say something is "New AND Improved." Well?? Which is it. If it's new, then there hasn't been anything before it that could have been improved. And if it is improved that implies that it isn't new, but just upgraded.
‎7: When people say life is short... ARE YOU FISTING ME?! LIFE IS THE LONGEST THING WE DO!! What do people do that is any longer? I REALLY WANT TO KNOW.
‎8: When you are waiting for the bus and people would ask you, "Has the bus already come yet?" Lights on but nobody's home. Would I be here if it had come?
‎9: When people say, "My eyes aren't what they used to be.." What did they used to be? Ears?
‎10: When you are eating something and somebody asks if it is good. No good sir. It is absolutely revolting. I love eating things I hate.
11: When people announce that they are going to the toilet. Thank you for that image I really didn't need.
‎12: McDonalds staff that pretend like they don't know what you are talking about unless you preface every word with Mc... How about I grab a Mcstraw and Mcstab it into your Mcfreaking Mceye. Comprende?
13: When I order fast food or gas and they ask me if I need a receipt. There is a money back guarantee that I won't be returning your merchandise.

14: When I go skateboarding/snowboarding and I eat crap. Inevitably one of my friends will run up and while doing nothing but standing over me ask me if I'm alright. After I fell on the concrete I decided that it kinda reminded me of my down feather pillow and I thought I might take a little nap right here right now... NO I'M NOT ALRIGHT!!!
‎15: When people ask me if they can borrow a tissue.... no but you can have one. I don't want it back after you have rubbed your snot all over it. Not one of my fetishes...

wow i love him, made my friday much better! Great start the the weekend!

oh what a year

Last night I was laying in bed just thinking about life and where mine is headed. Of course thinking of life I did a little reviewing of what my last year was like. Mostly it was filled with the love of my life Curtis. Seeing that my closest friends read this you all probably know him and have read the multiple blog posts that have been centered around him. There have been days where Curt and I have studied hard, played hard, and worked hard together. 2010 is now over and its strange contemplating what is next for me.

I graduated, I did it which means no more schooling; no more all nighters writing a paper that feels like will never come together. No more 2nd floor lib computer lab. No more waking up at 6:30 for my early morning classes to find zero parking at the U. No more checking webct just in case my teacher posted something new. No more walking past the construction zone business circle. No more free newspapers from OSH. No more longing for fall/winter/spring/summer break. No more school no more school...I miss it already!!!

Now I have my degree, and its time to say goodbye to my college job. Jones Waldo: my everyday consistent friend for the past 3 years. I love working here, great hours, great boss, great amounts of time off if wanted, and the best co-workers! It will be hard to say farewell to this place, but a new job is the game plan! (hopefully by April)

I am so thankful for the lessons I learned and the people that influenced my life. There were key people that I will never forget and will love for a long time.
Kendal we have gone through everything, we know everything about each other and know how life can be sometimes. The lovely daily chat at the desk are times that get me through the day (even if Jaron will stop and pretend he has something to tell us..even though its just his way of saying KATIE GO DOWNSTAIRS!) Our looks of pure understanding when we are about to burst into tears. I love you and love that you know exactly who I am. I'm so glad you are my best friend, cousin, and work pal!
Des wow! Thank you for just about everything! Loved becoming such great friends, being there for each other when certain boys were confusing and our over analyzing selves were acting crazy! Oh Faune! From nothing to sisters! still crossing my fingers!
And to Curtis. He will never read this, but thank you for being you. Thank you for being the love of my life. Thank you for all our days together! You are always an example of who I want to become. You have changed my life and I have loved loving you.

I am not saying goodbye to; 2010, school, and work. I am just beginning to say hello to 2011, for new opportunities and an unexpected everything. I loved 2010 and the comfort I had in knowing how it was all going to work. It was how my life has been for the last 6 years and it was what I was used to. There were a million trials that I didn't know existed and a million times I couldn't believe my life could be so happy! It was a year that I loved and will miss.
