"Nebraska, Nebraska, I love you."

So far my first actual college Spring Break has been pretty amazing, despite the trouble we had getting here, and it's only day three.  So far my boyfriend, his sister and I have adventured to Red Mango, a cute little frozen yogurt and smoothie joint and to a  sweet factory, called Rocket Fizz, which pretty much contains all of my worldly passions sans books in one quaint building.

Sadly though, our Spring Break did not start off as care free and wonderful as it has been. The boyfriend and I were Nebraska bound and just outside of the town our school is in when my car started to get this weird smell, and since our school's town is full of factories that may have been expelling the putrid smell, it wasn't. We looked out my back window and saw a massive amount of exhaust coming out of my car, so we went to get some oil in it. We were too late, we pulled over to the side of the road and had to make at least 4 calls a piece to find someone to tell us what may be wrong with it and to see if they could come get us. We finally got someone to come get us and to take us back to school for the night and wait for morning to call a tow truck.

The next morning we called a tow truck and finally got my car back on campus, we got out our bags and headed to Nebraska with the bf's dad and sister. I don't want this week to end, but I know that we have to go back to real life, and school, but it's days away so I'm not entirely worried right now. I just hope that my car will be able to be fixed with the little money I do have and that my financial woes will get better over the summer.  Til then I'm just going to enjoy the chirping of the birds, the warmth of the sun on my face and the smell of home cooked meals.

What are you doing for your Spring Break??

So, I've been dumped.

It seems that a so-called friend of mine, who shall remain nameless, even though I've written about this certain individual before, and with high praise I might add, has deleted me from Facebook.

Yes, it's Facebook and I have a ton of other friend's that are perfect for the replacement of this former friend, but I have an issue with people sometimes. I always want answers as to why they've done what they've done, not just to me, but to others as well and for this person in particular I am chomping at the bit for even a slice of communication. But it seems that my college experience may be "changing me" and their Bible thumping bigot of a fiance does not entirely embrace the world and all of it's glorious changes that are happening every day. As I see it that's their problem, I'll be the one that's educated and I'll be a half of  a power couple making bank (hopefully) and they'll be busy popping out babies left and right like it's going out of style.

I'm sorry but this unfortunate loss of an already lost friend is not really helping my stress levels, it's almost 4 a.m. and I have a class at 9 in the morning tomorrow and I'm blogging about spilled milk essentially. It's the week before Spring fucking Break, why can't I just have a little bit of solitude? Just a dash, a pinch if you will. So in an effort to cool my own jets about this abrupt departure I've taken to posting a poll of sorts on my Facebook wall asking my friend's who is getting educated, who has been educated, and who has a job in a field they enjoy that getting a degree helped them to get. To prove to myself and They Who Shall Not Be Named that in the end things will probably be better for me.

Tonight, I hate Facebook a little bit more.

Tomorrow is another day, just gotta breathe through today I guess.

I've said my peace.
