where I make trouble by trying to avoid it [Feb. 2nd, 2009|08:26 pm]
[mood |aggravatedaggravated beyond belief]

So, Advisor and I are supposed to meet to deal with this stupid assinine IACUC thing. He tells me last week that he may not be able to meet Monday if Nancy doesn't get him her NSF resubmission over the weekend (it's due really soon and she's doing this from Kenya). In which case, we'd meet Wednesday. I tell him, fine, I'm available anytime either day for this, just TELL ME. I hear nothing from him. I try calling his office around noon, leave a message. Still nadda. Try again right after his office hours, no answer. one of my friends was meeting with him at the time (I find out when he comes back up to our office area). I'm feeling like I've done enough and obviously, he's busy as he said he might be. So, like a moron, I don't try to call him again. I get an email from him tonight saying that he realizes he was probably supposed to confirm with me, as I never came by and he was expecting me! Of course by this point he has to leave anyhow...so we have to meet Wednesday. but wait! We're both going to that talk in Princeton (I'm actually probably riding with him, but we need a computer and internet for this), so that means we have to do this before 2. And he has a faculty meeting and some other meeting. Oh, and family emergency may involve hi leaving the state! Argh! I told him fine to play it by ear and call me anytime he can meet Wednesday cause this needs to get done!

I'm mad at myself; in my gut I knew I should try calling him again...he's terrible at checking his voicemail, apparently in his office as well as his cell. I think I am too sensitive to being a pest to people, espeially when I know they're super busy. I need to get over that. And remember Advisor apparently doesn't check voicemail period (and therefore, my calling a bunch is not a hassle as he never got the damn message to begin with). of course, why the heck didn't he call me if he was expecting me to come by and it was getting towards time for him to leave?? that's what I do...is this a man thing?

edited to add: and it is that time of the month and my damn hormones are reminding me that big brain aside, yes, biology affects our behavior (there are those who think understanding evolution and the type of things I study are irrelevant for humans since we have wonder cognitive abilities that override these baser thing. What a load of shit.). I am so emotional right now, it is absurd...I get upset and cry easily at times like these and my response to these kind of situations is not normal.

I'm trying to think of an example of self deception from my life for a response paper for my deceit and self deception class....anybody got something they don't mind sharing? Names will be changed...and I'm getting desperate since I have to do this by tonight. The only stuff I've come up with is either lame or stuff I'm not willing to share with my professor...

[music |my list...]

here's my song list (from roothekittykat's!)

I've skipped anything without words or that repeats (I have some songs on repeat like 10 times) or foreign languages...

1. well we know I’m going away and how I wish, I wish it weren’t so Thanks Ro!
2. something told me it was time to give you yours and leave me mine
3. it would be nice to know everything but i never said i did
4. Yeah, I'm trapped inside my conspiracy of happiness, said I was yours, you were mine but I didn't really mean it
5. Now you see what you get when you lose yourself, What you get when you don't know who you are
6. You've been on a road, Don't know where it goes or where it leads
7. She never loved me, Why should anyone?
8. I think i'll go for a ride, Til my memory fades, Roll down the windows and glide down 75 to the Everglades
9. I hope that you can trust this heart behind my tired eyes
10. I’ve got a speck of truth caught in my eye, it stings like hell and it’s making me cry
11. would you run away, would you stay, or would I melt into you?
12. I know its true, no one heals me like you and you hold the key
13. Cause I used to have angels, they used to watch over me, love was not a stranger, but love ain’t what it used to be
14. I don't need forever after, but it's your laughter won't let me go So I'm holding on this way
15. I thought about calling you when I got off the plane, everytime I see the city through the clouds I get that way
16. Oh, I knew there’d be hell to pay, but that crossed my mind a little too late
17. I'm surprised that you've never been told before, That you're lovely, And you're perfect
18. when you walked up behind me and covered my eyes, and whispered in my ear guess who?, I rattled out the names like I really didn’t know, but all along I knew it was you
19. Sometimes it stops, Sometimes it flows, But baby that is how love goes
20. can I burn the mazes I grow? Can I? I don’t think so

good luck!

//Meanwhile, officials said Friday the Palestinian Authority is looking for new names for evacuated Jewish settlements, and is considering calling some of them after the late Palestinian leaders Yasser Arafat and Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, the founder of Hamas who was killed by an Israeli missile in 2004.

"In the last Cabinet session we discussed changing the names of the evacuated settlements in Gaza, and there were suggestions like naming some of these places after martyrs, particularly Arafat and Ahmed Yassin," said Samir Huleileh, the Palestinian Cabinet secretary-general, adding that no decision had yet been taken. //

lovely yes? We're negotiating peace with a government honors terrorists. And the Bush administration is giving them money...oh, yeah...that's just the way to wage the war on terrorism.

Sometimes, I just don't like reading the news.

amusing stuff... [Aug. 25th, 2005|12:56 am]
[mood |awakeawake]

so, here's some pins I've found online...gonna buy myself a few once my stipend comes in. note: some are a bit harsh and maybe a hair over the top...

from www.evolvefish.com/fish/buttons.html

1. How long until evolution elliminates the Christian right?
2. Do you really really think your maniacal biblical ramblings are going to change my beliefs?
3. Support stem cell research, grow Bush a brain
4. I wasn't created in YOUR image of G-d
5. You're pro-life? That's fine. Now get one and stay out of mine.
6. Anyone who claims G-d is on their side is dangerous as hell.
7. G-d is coming and she is pissed!
8. G-d protect me from your followers.
9. I've got nothing against G-d. It's his fan club I can't stand.

10. I hate clowns especially elected ones
11. Keep your laws off my body!

I think I'm getting 3, 6, 10, and 11. I used to have #10, but I lost it. That and I'm getting a Darwin fish one and one that says Coexist (the letters are a bunch of different religions symbols and a peace sign).

and this is what I do when I can't sleep...

I'm in NJ...my apartment's nice (and big!). My roommates seem cool. I have no internet yet...gotta handle that today. Not too many people around either. All's going well, and my room's looking pretty though! So, I'm gonna go continue my ridiculusly long list of stuff to do. Will talk to everyone soon, miss you all!

For Ro :~)

1. Reply with your name and I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll tell you what song/movie/book/fictional character reminds me of you.
3. I'll pick a substance to wrestle with you in.
4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me. Or at least me.
5. I'll tell you my favorite memory of you.
6. I'll tell you what animal or plant you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.
8. If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal. You MUST. It is written.

It's been a day. I've mostly recovered from Dance Marathon. I've commited to going to Rutgers next year and I'm happy with that. And I bought a plane ticket to Israel. Wow...now I'm going to get some sleep...
