Randomosity: Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, Life Goes On...

If you did tell me I would stay away from blogger for this long, I would say you lie!

Good News:
- I finished all my assignments and I did all of them properly. What usually happens is that I concentrate so much on the first two or three big essays and presentations, that I completely neglect the others till the night before and then have to do this nasty, patch-up rush job... not this year!!!

-Boss lady was so impressed with my work that she offered me a more permanent(ish) deal, and my story comes out in the Gleaner tomorrow (update: it did!)...

-I'm employed, and I love(!!) my job...

-Mommy's here!!!

Bad News:
-I'm still in school =D

-I haven't been home to see mommy yet

-Three of my friends died in a car crash that totally incinerated their bodies in Oracabessa. I've never been hit by that many deaths so close to me at once... totally shook up, can't believe it... just can't believe it...

Life Lessons:
-Doing the right thing is hard...

-You can love someone and still want to strangle the living daylights outta them...

-Death is painful...

I am so very sorry for your loss. Such a horrible blow to lose three friends at one time. You're in my thoughts.

thanks everybody. i not even going to their funerals... cant deal with it... *sigh* trust life to throw something like this at you when you least expect it. None of them were over 23... it hurts in places I didn't even know existed.

Sorry for the bad news. Yes, death is painful. Fortunately not to them. To us.

Hug from Vincy. Life lessons are often not easy but we learn.

Welcome back!

Good to know you are on top of things and congrats on the article!

Sorry to hear about your friends, saw it on the news too. Every time we head on the road we gamble with our lives, it is a dangerous road out there.

thanks for reviving ob-la-di ob-la-da...i used to love that song...

can't wrap my mind round the death of those three...times like this i feel that maybe we're all just ants or some such insignificant creature populating the earth...

which we are of course, except to ourselves--
