out there…

out there

Well I like to scream in the middle of the street, take off all
my clothes, talk into the trees….

There’s Nothing
, Jhelisa, ‘Galactica Rush’

I have to take the test. You know, the test I’ve failed? I should
be studying more with the satisfaction that I’m going to pass this test this
time. I’m
very afraid that I will fail this test again…so please give me some good
vibes and words of encouragement. I’m needin’ a whole heap of courage right
about now.

I want to go see my family next weekend, but my mother wants to ride with me.
I don’t want to be far from my mother, but I want to relax, listen to my music.
She likes riding, stopping every so often, listening to spiritual music, or,
better yet, listen to nothing at all. My quandry? How can I tell her I don’t
necessarily want to ride with her, that I’d rather ride alone?

My viral load is undetectable. Colds last less than 24 hours these days. The
doctor thinks I look buff, and fabulous. Now he wants me to take Procrit, to
offset anemia. How’s that for irony?

How come I’m afraid of getting laid off?

Has everyone else blocked the war with Iraq out of their minds too?

How come I can’t find the right colors for my website? You’d think I would have
on a new pattern for my site about now.

    I’m sendin’ good vibes your way — I would sing a note or two but my throat is a little horse and I lack singing abilities.

  2. Anitra says:

    I’m also sending some thoughts of encouragement your way. I’m sure you’ll ace the test. 🙂

    *sends you 200cc of Viagra!*
    (whoops! Wrong message of ‘encouragement’!)
    *hug!* You can do it, baby! *smile!*

    youll do well on the test…about not feeling amped to ride with momma: just tell her how you feel. she’s momma–she’ll understand (or disown you if she doesnt accept your reasoning for wanting to ride alone).
    dag..id call you but you arent ever athome. but good luck ont he exam.

    Take a different perspective. Don’t worry about passing the test. Think about knowing the information that will be on the test. Make sure the information you are studying makes sense. Don’t think about what you may not know. Trust that you will know it.
    As for fears of being laid off: Job security comes not from having a job, but from possessing the skills to earn a living.
    I learned that lesson the *first* time I got fired.

  6. Ah… that damn test. I think Bernie gave the best advice on that.
    As for Mom, does she know how you like to travel? If not, now is a good time to tell her.

    Be encouraged, my friend. I am working on my final exam as I type and thank God it is a take home exam. I am an ‘A’ away from getting my certificate in relational database management systems from UC Berkeley so you pray for me and I’ll pray for you.

    good vibes, good vibes, good vibes…
    i don’t know what to tell you about your mom. i’m facing a similar problem…mom is bound and determined that we are going on some kind of excursion this summer (“her treat”)…but how do i tell her that the 2 days i just spent with her last week are enough to last me a year?!
    and yeah, what bernie said…(about knowing the stuff and having the skills). it’s da truth.
