So, the deali-- I worked so far every day this week. I'm not complaining, it means more money in the pay check.  I mean it could be worse, not asking for worse, just stating that it could be.

Seriously though, nothing else has happened.  I thought I needed a new road bike because my frame (I thought) was toast, but I was informed today I just need my rear wheel rebuilt (ALOT ALOT ALOT cheaper.)   Anyways, once work slows down I'll have time to think and write.. But seeing I work a 10 hour day tomorrow, and Saturday I work 7 hours. I am supposed to work all day Sunday but I need off to do some shit (I told them I couldn't work Sunday's.)

I don't work all weekend. Why? I have driver improvement class Saturday ALL DAY And Sunday well Sunday is a long story.

Work has been fine, other then Pete (a guy I work with) and his stalker. Short story is this girl asked him to go out, he went out on one date and she's been calling him 20 times a day. So I being a friend told her to stay away :) What? It was rather amusing.

I spun about 30 mins last night on the trainer, and need to spin about an hour today and tomorrow on flat ground---- but I have a flat on my baby so I need to go check that out at the shop before.

That's my deali for the next couple days..

"The most important piece of equipment is the one sitting on the saddle."- Greg LeMond

So what has been happening?

work I worked both Saturday and Sunday this weekend. As well as yesterday 10-8. Fun times eh? I work today from 2-8 and off tomorrow (I think.) Thursday I work again from 2-8; Friday I'm not really sure about but ANYWAYS :) Saturday I'm off because I have driver improvement class, and Sunday I work from 10-5.

On a really good note, I've been able to get some fun rides in. Like the one I told about last week- getting lost about 5 miles from my house in a stream. It was fun guys, I promise you.

I'm off to do some crap before work.

This will probably be a bunch of random thoughts. For example, I'm going to probably start getting alot more hours at work. I don't mind work at all for once I really enjoy my job. I learn so much everyday, I love that learning curve.
I work tomorrow 10-5, should be balls of fun!!

Today I went biking, first off I got mad lost, ended up walking down the middle of a stream to find the road. I also was going down hill and ate shit. Flying over the handle bars only to catch myself with a tree. It was fun though, seriously, it was. If I wake up early enough, tomorrow I'm going to go out again.

Now, question for you all- what type of menu/link setup should I have? Pop ups? Java? Frames? I'm so confused...

Things are changing alittle bit don't you think?? I like the design, but hey I may change it in a week so who knows.

Going biking and who knows what else. Random thought- Erin is moving this weekend to Philly :( I'm sad.

I'm sitting here watching MTV. It's alot easier to watch then the news, but they give alot of what has been happening today. I think the NYC service was amazing. Four types of bag pipes started at the four corners of the city and entered the site at the same time. The minute the first plane crashed the ceremony started and the minute the last tower crumbled the ceremony ended.

I think Michelle Branch put it the best, the youth of the nation didn't really know what it was to be an American but now we can look at a flag
and really say "Yes, I know what it is to be an American. "

I think that is all I should say for today, I'll pick up with all the stupid everyday life tomorrow.

Worked a 10 hour day yesterday. Today I have class, and some riding to do. Oh and sleep, one long nap is in order for this afternoon.

I'll write more after class, or in class and just put it in type later today.

Celeste Prince - Wherever You are

Time has come, what's done is done
It's time to move on
To another place, another space,
maybe circling some other sun
Don't ask why, don't ask how
I still can't explain
To say goodbye, goodbye for now till I see you again

In the sunlight that's where I'll be
In the moon night close your eyes, you will see me
In the sunrise in the twilight
I'll be the morning and the evening star
I will be there with you wherever you are

Life is strange, such joy and pain
The betrayal and the kiss
It maybe meant to be, maybe destiny
Leads us down a path like this
Child is born, true love is sworn
All the in-between
Well you walk on, walk on until the path is gone
Learning love is the only everything

So it's goodnight, things go wrong
but it's alright
We're all just passin' through here
At the speed of light

I feel so helpless in life right now, I'm on this course that someone, somewhere set for me. I can't change it, I can't avoid all the problems that will happen along the way. I never truely believed until tonight that life is not in our hands, it isn't ours to control. All I can do is try the best I possibly can and hope that is good enough to put me where I should be. That bothers me alot, yet I know I can't do anything about it and that bothers me even more.

Another thing about life that is bothering me- life is perfect for a time and then it is hard, and when it is hard- it only gets harder. Why can't it be an even amount of shit? If that makes sense, good. If not I'm sorry. It's one of those moments.

Half of me is elsewhere, as it always is and the other half of me is as confused as hell. Not confused, but I guess worried. What comes next? How much can I take, or how much can the people around me take??

And now you'll see, I can't be me. -Michelle Branch

I am happy with life right now. I actually like the people I work with (for once), classes aren't that hard as long as I don't fall that far behind. Biking is going well, sure I get beat up once in awhile, esp. when I start racing soon- but it's actually fun again. It wasn't like that with SnowValley. My weekends allow me to have alot to look forward to.

Nothing else happens in my life right now, hence why I haven't been posting much. Erin is leaving for Philly in the next week or so, everyone has left for college (two-three weeks ago actually.) Everything Kristin Cousin and I talk it seems like we fight. I know she's not a bad person, and I'll always love her for who she is, but I can't mentally deal with the relationship she forms. Not right now I know.

Anyways, if anyone needs any movies or mp3's let me know, I think I have access to everything ever made right now.

I feel like poop, but I'm better. Ate some ice cream that didn't decide to revisit my throat. Anyways, I will probably take a nap soon and then clean. I always am dead tired, and then have too much energy. Still feel like poop, but needa do something kinda deal. I don't think my mom is going to let me goto work since I didn't go to school- which may mean no going out tonight- which will make me cry. I needa get out.

New plan of the day- cleaning the shit outta the house/yard/room etc etc.
Posted by: Arleigh at 5:29 PM

A moment to bitch please. After spending the past two days in the woods, I not only was left to find my own way home... but I was left to find away to work when Kevin (ride both times) knew my bike was at work. My road has two flats, and I'm not even thinking of trying to go on my other. If I get fired I blame Kevin, and he has to call to explain- not I.
