Go Big Blue!


Last night's game was wonderful; it was exciting, nauseating at times, and caused my heart to palpitate!

My boyfriend and I made a date out of it and watched it in the apartment. Towards the end and when they went into overtime, Jay couldn't watch anymore and decided to go to the kitchen to clean up. As he did so, the Giants retrieved the ball and won their game shortly after. I made Jay stay in the kitchen until they did!

My dad must be totally happy and in glee.

Depression and Loneliness visited me tonight along with their children: Envy, Anger, and Helplessness.

Depression: Knock, knock, we'reeeee back.
Me: No! Go away. Today was a good day and I've been so good, why do you have to come tonight?
Loneliness: Awww. Don't you remember that you have no one but us? We can sit with you, play with your mind, and tuck you in goodnight!
Me: Wellll. You are right. I am alone right now. Why don't you come in? *sigh*
Envy: YAY! Oh don't you just wish you were like some other people. You don't have this and I know you definitely want that. How wonderful having that must be! Right Ma?
Loneliness: Thats right hun. Joanna dear, you need us right now. We are all you have left.
Depression: Baby, remind Joanna of that time in which work didn't go right, school sucked, and nothing was on T.V!
Anger: So and so didn't call. Remember, remember?
Helplessness: Anger, stop that! Don't you know Joanna can't help whats going on in her life right now. Shut up, she is only a human being.
Me: You know what Mr. and Mrs. Depression and Loneliness, you and your children can get the hell out and leave me alone for tonight. I can tuck myself in and don't need you for company. Leave me alone for at least this night.
Depression, Loneliness, Envy, Anger, and Helplessness (in unison): Alrighttt! We will be back when you least expect us!!!!!

Something to make me feel better tonight :)

Winter Intercession

Yesterday was my first day of my Crisis Intervention I course. It is a 5 day jam packed course--5 1/2 hours W/Thurs/Fri,  8 hrs Sat, and 5 hrs Sunday. The good news is that the course is 3 credits and that I still have 2 and a half weeks before my second semester starts!!!

We basically discussed the terms and stages of crisis, what we would do in different areas of crisis', listened to a first year high school counselor, and saw a mini video about bullying and how it led to one student's suicide. Our school provided us with dinner, cookies, drinks and coffee which was excellent! I participated and it was a good day--better then I had anticipated.

I'll let you know how the course ends. Keep warm everyone!
