So I don't know who all knows yet, and all that jazz, but I thought I would make my first post in a really long time just to keep all of you wonderful EC people in the know. Today I was accepted into the Communication Studies Program at the University of Kansas, and offered a teaching assistantship.

That means that all my tuition is covered, and they are going to pay me to teach 2 classes a semester. I am VERY excited, and wanted to let you all know!!

Apparently I am a calculating manipulative bitch...

Below you'll find your test result. After, continue on to your homescreen to discover what we're about.

58% Intellectual, 29% Impetuous, and 70% Trusting
Oooooooo...you're a baddun, aren't you? You are vicious enough when battling enemies, but lord help anyone silly enough to get close to you! Ambitious, melancholy, perhaps not even entirely sane, you are ready to undertake any dark and dangerous task for the sake of realising your ambitions. Courageous, sensitive and brilliant you may be, but a villain you remain... Don't believe me? Read all about it here.

Part of the reason you are so dangerous is reflected by your high Intellectual score. You are a thinker, and a planner -- a builder of dark, elaborate plots and stratagems. You frequently act on impulse or desire, but you think things through carefully, rationalising your decisions and arriving at the most amoral conclusions with calculated logic. To listen to you, it is almost as if you are being forced to act by the very nature of the universe.

All this intelligence is paired with a low Impetuous score that is both your greatest strength and your greater weakness. You are reflective enough that you suffer from pangs of conscience, or at least you pause to think about the consequences of your action. You do not fly about like a loose cannon. That is what makes you so terrifying. You work through all the implications of your actions before undertaking them and then, knowing full well what you are doing, you act with ruthless logic.

The final piece of bad news to add to this terrifying cauldron of horrors is that you are also extraordinarily prone to Trusting other people. You listen to and place great stock in the opinions of those who are close to you, and to those who know what they are talking about -- particularly when they seem to be reinforcing what you already want or think. You have an innate respect for authority, placing high value on friendship, duty and loyalty, even though you are more than capable of rationalising away your obligations to these very things when it suits you.

If things are going to get better, you need to learn to listen to that small quiet voice that is always whispering in your ear when you first contemplate doing something. Instinct is not always right, but if you have reservations about something, look those reservations in the face and understand where they come from rather than trying to talk yourself out of them or -- worse -- going to other people to help you convince yourself to ignore what you know is right. You are, at heart, an essentially good person, you just have to learn that this is probably enough in life. If you find yourself spending a lot of time convincing yourself to do something, it would probably be in your own best interest not to do it...

"North Central" is what professional linguists call the Minnesota accent. If you saw "Fargo" you probably didn't think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot.

You scored as III - The Empress. The Empress is a maternal symbol. She is the mother figure who loves, nurtures and protects.
She will protect you, she will always be there when you are in trouble. When you fall over and graze your knee, the Empress will kiss it better.
Yet she is not a weak figure. Her compassion is strength. If her children are threatened she will stop at nothing to protect them. If well aspected in a Tarot spread, the Empress can symbolise security, protection and unconditional love. If badly aspected it can represent over-protectiveness, fear of risk taking and refusal to face the real world.


III - The Empress


II - The High Priestess


XIII: Death


IV - The Emperor


XIX: The Sun


XI: Justice


0 - The Fool


I - Magician


XVI: The Tower


X - Wheel of Fortune


VIII - Strength


VI: The Lovers


XV: The Devil


Which Major Arcana Tarot Card Are You?

My two rants...

Firstly, I can hardly wait until November comes. I no longer want to watch freaking politicians rip the other candidate apart. We are very much so a swing state this year, so our smear campaigns are all over the national news. I hate it. It could stop whenever. It does not matter what party you belong to, you are not going to ever do all the things you say you are going to do. That is how it goes...

On a more serious note, I have a comment for men. There is a time and a place to look at a girls chest. At work, when she is speaking with you and wearing a turtleneck sweater, I would have to say refrain from staring at her chest. Even if it isn't a turtleneck. If it happens to be something a little lower cut, we understand you may look, but look and be done with it. There is no need to think it is acceptable not to look a person in the eyes as they are talking with you soley so you can give them a little show. They are just boobs. They aren't that exciting.

All in all, there is a time and a place. My advice to you, don't do it at work. Ladies there find it offensive.

Back to the grind

I first want to thank you all for a great weekend. It is really kinda funny. Normally I get back from Eureka or any other vacation and I abhor the idea of going to work, but not so much this morning. I got up, made myself pretty and headed off to a wonderful day at the store.

The first thing that I got was a deep seeded desire to not work in customer service anymore. I personally believe that all people should work a customer service job at some point in their lives so that they know how to and how not to treat others. Today I had people scoffing at me because I was barely acknowledging them as I was trying to deal with a phone call and cashier at the same time. Now, every single person that came through my line came through while my sign read closed, due to the fact I was on a phone call, but none the less, I was in the wrong. (In my defense, I was not on a phone where I could simply transfer the call and leave the front lanes, and the woman on the line was SCREAMING at me over things I could not control. I opted not to ask her to call back).

Anyway, I realized quickly that I needed out. Anyway I could get it. My only problem now is that my boss Debbie, who is about the greatest person in the world, just asked me to train on day books because she is going to need to take lots of time off because they are pretty sure that the cancer her husband has is terminal. This week they have been in and out of oncologists offices, MAYO clinic, and all over the state just trying to find people who are willing to do something. So that makes it a little difficult to say, hey, now I want to leave.

The major issue I have in my life is with Best Buy. A lady I know from Target has a son who is really interested in having me come and work there. My mom is pushing me like crazy to do it, but I know one truth. If I go there, I won't go to school. To work there I will need to move out, which won't be a big deal because they pay really well, but none the less I will be living really far away from anyone I know. It is hard enough having the majority of my friends live in Illinois, but if I were to move to Richfield I would know absolutely no one, I really don't know how I would do. I like to have people to do things with. I am really close to my family, and I love just sitting down and watching TV with them, bowling with my mom, etc. 45 minutes really isn't that far, but in ways it is.

Therefore what will make me stop feeling sick to my stomach is to decide if I want to leave what I am doing right now, get a 40-hour-a-week job, and forget about those I feel as if I need to help, OR do I stick it out where I am at. Apply to grad schools, and go to school. Mom says I should just focus on work now, and go back to school in a few years. To that I say in a few years I could be married and want to have kids. School becomes hard at that point.

OH, do I see me as Dr. Grill teaching COMM classes somewhere, or do I see myself as a Benefits Analyst, or a HR Director for a major corporation?

If only I knew.

My week has been an interesting one. On Monday our little bunny, mighty mouse, died. Then, that evening we put up some sheetrock in the living room. To do so, my dad had to remove the extenders from the bottom two steps, and I forgot they were gone and fell on my bum on Wednesday. THEN, Wednesday after my mom forgot to invite me to lunch at work, we went out to dinner and found out that my Uncle Joe went to the hospital because he was having shortness of breath, and the doctors did an angiogram, (sp?), and deteremined that due to 80 to 90 percent blockage of all the major arteries, he would have to have quadruple bypass surgery tomorrow.

THEREFORE, if you could all keep my family, especially my uncle, in your prayers, it would be greatly appreciated. It never hurts to have lots of people thinking of and rooting for you.
