Hey you! Recycle please!

I just recently became a recycler. I'm not sure that's a word but since I'm amongst friends, I'll use it. I was never into it until my boyfriend moved in with his brother, who also recycles. I remember having a cardboard "recycling box" in my classrooms in high school, which were usually just  old tv boxes. Recycling in itself I suppose. However, in my adult life, I was never contientious about it. Well now, NOW, I am Mother Earth's little helper and it's SO easy! The apartment community I live in does not have anywhere for its' residents to recycle. It's very annoying and irresponsible but I've come to expect such things from them. There's a park though, right around the corner and they have recycling bins and that is where I go. I just took an old crate and turned it into my recycling bin and I save all my eligible material and take it there once a week. It's not at all the hassle I thought it would be because the park is on my way to work. The biggest thing I've done, and what I'm going to suggest to you all, was a small start. I bought resuable shopping bags. Trust me, it was a big deal. I spend way too much time and money in Target. I was bringing home tons of plastic bags each week. When I decided to be better about "going green," I just bought one bag each shopping trip. Target has them for $0.99 and they give you  $0.05 off for every bag you resue, even if it's an old plastic bag. Every place has these bags (even the dollar stores) and it's a little way for us all to start small and clean things up a bit. I even bought a resuable IU bag (go Hoosiers)! So grab some bags, save your beer cans and cereal boxes and please, PLEASE RECYCLE. Every little bit does help :)

ProActiv for Palin

Is it just me or is there anyone else in this world who thinks that Sarah Palin is an idiot? I was really hoping that she would just fade away like a bad haircut or acne. But she's like a bad rash! It was lucky enough that the United States dodged a major bullet when Grandpa McCain picked her as a running mate and Obama (who I have some issues with right now) managed to pull it off. But NOW, now she's like the kind of strange person you half smile at in Starbucks just to be nice, and they think it's an invitation to sit down and chat-awkwardly present. It seems as if we're stuck with her! She's an analyst now?! What brainiac thought that was a good idea? I know she does have a journalism degree and she's entitled ( I guess) to pursue such a career. However, I really don't want to hear any news from someone who makes moose jerky and has some shady business tactics. Where there no jobs as a flautist available? The root of this rant however, is seated in jealousy. I've been laboring (to no avail) to find a suitable journalism gig and all she has to do is walk out of her job and into another one. Where is the justice? Oh well. I'm going to buy a box of crayons and see how long it takes me to work my way through her book. Should be fun.

I'm still here...who knows for how long?!

Since I cant find a job (yes, this is me whining), I have decided to blog (and blog more frequently) in order to keep the writing game fresh!!! But what can i tell you that you haven't already heard? I'm not really sure but I think I'm going to entertain the masses with stories from my job at a country club. Don't jump to conclusions! It's hilarious. But not nearly as hilarious as going to lunch with my family and hearing my uncle order a "seizure salad." Until next time....

Welcome Me!

Hello All!

It's time for me to get back in the game! I've barely written anything since I quit my job at the paper. So this is where the magic will happen. This is where I will share and chat and create. It'll also be a place where I can post some writings and have friends and family and potential employers check me out. So show me some love but please keep it clean!
