Search Me Often?

Thursday this week the dentist will be stealing all my wisdom so I am currently trying to keep my mind occupied, plus I’m bored at work. You may find many random posts between now and Thursday, especially when I’m trying to keep my mind occupied like today.

I noticed recently some odd searched leading people to my page. Some make sense, others not so much. If you care to read, they are below with my thoughts on the people doing the searching. Enjoy.

i love you finger art – Well, this can only lead to my post with finger art in it. I can only imagine what this person thought if they decided to read the rest of my blog.

finger art – My guess is this is the same person as above, once again I believe they came across this post and it’s not what they were looking for. Instead it was just a random photo from my random life when I was messing around with people…nothing unusual for me.

cancer pisces alike in many ways – I’m going to guess that this person was searching along the lines of my search when I came across the information I posted on this one. They probably found some information they were looking for in this one, maybe.

our24yearagegap@yahoo.com – Clearly someone was trying to see what all was linked to my e-mail address which got me curious. I found the following: contact page and some other page that I’m not sure of.

when to divorce – This had to lead the person to the following post and I hope this person found what they are looking for. It saddens me to hear about people getting a divorce, but sometime it really is for the best.

lmfao – sexy and i know it youtube ageless – This is a random search here…very interesting. This person was looking for me that’s for sure, not sure why those plus “ageless” would be put together. It had to lead them to the following post and probably another page I have removed from my account.

our24yeargap.wordpress.com – This one is pretty self explanatory, they were clearly trying to relocate my page.

love finger art – Someone really loves their finger art! I’m curious if this was all the same person or multiple people.

mimi alford or beardsley – This person was probably searching for “Once Upon a Secret” and came across my post reviewing the book. I do hope they buy it and enjoy it as much as I have. It was truly a good book!

our24yeargap – Once again this is pretty self explanatory, clearly this person was searching for me.

finger art love – And again someone is in love with their finger art! I will admit, this search has made me quit popular. I’m always impressed to see that 1 person has looked at my blog, let along 2!

this kid necer stops playing x box – I’d like to point out that this person can’t spell, but they must have come across either this blog post or this one. I’m going to take a guess here they may have been talking about my brother because he NEVER stops playing! It must be nice to be 20 (almost 21), no job, no school, and play Xbox all damn day!! Ugh!!

job come – I’m guessing this person was searching for my post directly because I’m not sure why you would search “job come” only…it’s a little creepy to think people are looking for me directly and clearly more than once.

what if volunteer firefighters don’t volunteer – Someone is worried about their firefighters not showing up and I would just like to say that it would be very rare for this to happen! But who knows, it could. I think they came across one of the two posts that I have with volunteer firefighter in it, either this one or this one.

Why So Serious?

Today I actually had a day off, amazing right? Which would explain why I’m  not posting anything till now, I spent my day being completely lazy! Which apparently also means I’m completely tired because I feel exhausted for some reason! Since I ended up with the day off that meant I got to enjoy a little Xbox, and by a little bit I mean maybe 30 minutes, that’s what happens when I avoid my medicine for the day. See, some people believe ADHD is a “bullshit excuse for laziness.” Not true, I am far from lazy and there are more than enough people to back that up. I simply can not keep my focus, no matter what. It could be something I completely enjoy, like playing Xbox, but if I’m not under control for the day, I can’t stay with one thing. There are some days where I am able to control my ADHD better than others, but the majority of the time I just let it go and bounce from thing to thing.

Today while playing Xbox, I got on Modern Warfare 3, naturally, to kill some people which ended quickly for two reasons. One, my ADHD and zero focus on it, I played all of one round before I got bored. And two, because people take the game WAY to seriously!! Has anyone else noticed this? It’s a game people! It’s to have fun! I got cussed out and told how stupid I am multiple times because the other team shot and killed me…let me mention here that I was the last person on my team to die, meaning these people cussing me out for “causing us to lose” had already been killed PRIOR to my death! Upon mentioning this to them, they left the game and I guess found another group to play. I just don’t get it. It’s a game! Not a competition! And there is not need to tell me how bad of a player I am if you’ve died before me, especially multiple times.

Tonight I’m off to find a new case for my iPad2. I really, really, REALLY want the Lifeproof case, but there is no date yet on when it’s going to come out and I just don’t think I can wait. I am still totally in love with my Lifeproof iPhone case! I decided to take a relaxing bath this morning and took my phone with me to watch some Netflix. And of course only I would manage to drop my phone in the water, but this case saved it yet again! : ) I watched a movie that was new to me today, called Alabama Moon. In my opinion, very good movie! I really enjoyed the story line a lot. My older man came across it on Netflix and told me to watch it. He sure knows what kind of movies I like! If you haven’t seen it and you like what you read on IMDB, then perhaps you too should watch it. You will not be disappointed.

Tattle Tale

I’m a bad friend, go ahead, say it, I know I am. Let me correct that, I’m a bad ex-friend…seriously, you do not want me as your enemy!

First, a little back story so you understand. I had this friend, she was a really good friend of mine, she ended up pregnant after a hook up in the backseat of her car (and her mom says I’m the bad influence! ha!). Not the best decision on her part, but not my choice. Anyway, her and this guy decide they are going to keep the kid, great. She moves 45 mins away to live with this guy. They seem to be doing good until she’s 8 months pregnant. I get a phone call from her demanding to be picked up ASAP. He’s apparently had another girlfriend since she was about 4 months pregnant and decided he no longer wants a kid or her. So I rescue her, take off work, spend my time and money helping her, get her all moved in with her mom again.

Time comes, she has the kid, and he’s so freaking cute! : ) So I help her some in the beginning, let her know it’s going to be ok and stuff. 2 weeks after having the kid she decides to go to a party, meets a boy there. (Let’s take not here that he’s 8 years older than her.) They hit it off well, become friends and start dating. Meanwhile she is applying for all kinds of state aid and welfare to help raise this child because she doesn’t go to school, works maybe 15 hours a week, and her mother is retired. So she gets all this state aid as long as she lives with her mother.

Well, her and this guy she met hit it off so well that they move in together. She doesn’t notify the state office that she has moved, she lets them continue to believe she lives with her mom. Short time after they find out the child is deaf, poor kid. So they take him to all kinds of specialist (on state money) to figure everything out. He gets a special doctor, hearing aids…the works (good for him!). Well, state decides they are going to pay for one cochlear implant but not the other. She’s pissed! Thinks she has a right for the state to pay for BOTH! State assigns them special teacher for speech therapy and pays for schooling too to a special school to prepare him for kindergarten. All the therapy is done at her mom’s house because that’s where the state thinks she is living.

During all this time they have taken several vacations, to many states. During one of these vacations they meet up with some family who tells them they should sign the kid up for disability. Are you kidding me?!?! He’s not even 5!! But the state approved it! $1200 a month worth!!!! On top of the other money they are getting already! Stupid!! Now, while they are on this vacation they also decide to get “married” but not let the state know it was a legal ceremony. See, she receives a pell grant and gets school paid for PLUS another $2200 a SEMESTER extra to spend on school supplies, gas, etc…they don’t want to get married because they won’t get this money. That means they’d have to actually pay for her schooling…wouldn’t want that.

Now…I should mention that this guy of hers make $28+ an hour…together they make more than enough to not need this state aid. No, they could not live NEAR as comfortable as they are now, but they can survive like the rest of us and still have some left, but they can’t save, just spend, spend, spend. So lets take an inventory…they have a flat screen tv, bought ALL new furniture, Xbox with kinect, a 4-wheeler, a $300 remote control car, a $170 remote control helicopter, a bike, guns, vacations…I can’t keep track! They are blowing money on whatever they want.

Now, what made her my ex-friend, which may sound like a dumb “girl” problem to you, but I have my reason. See, though I am considered a “gifted” child, I am behind in many other departments, kind of like autism (though I refuse to let my doctor test me). Since I am behind in some areas, I am sensitive to being called certain names. Last spring I was finishing up paramedic school and doing a ton of clinicals and working and studying…I was busy! I literally had like 1 to 2 days off each month, it sucked! One day I got a text from her man, now keep in mind here I hadn’t talked to or hung out with any of my friends in a long while, but his text basically asked why I never stop by. I told him I’ve been busy, blah, blah, blah.

Well he doesn’t answer for a few days, then I get another text that says, “You’re acting so stupid! It’s ******’s birthday today and you’re going to miss it! I bet you didn’t even get him anything.” Ok, are you kidding me?! First of all, being called “stupid” is something I am sensitive about, I don’t like it because I believe I really am stupid, especially in some areas. Next, all he’s worried about is what I’m buying the kid…I think they get MORE than enough state money to buy the kid plenty! Well, after talking to my friend about this she didn’t stand up for me (I saw that coming). It’s no loss to me, he was a jerk all the time and she couldn’t care what he did to me.

He used to give me trouble all the time and make fun of me for hanging out with my OM (before we were officially together) but yet he is 8 years older than my friend…8 years is apparently acceptable, where 24 is not. So…all in all, not much of a “loss” losing them from my life.

Now, back to the point of this story…I turned them in to the state for fraud and I’m not feeling the least bit guilty. I know what you’re thinking…you did it because you wanted revenge…wrong! I did it because I’m tired of them, and everyone out there, abusing the system. I think you should have to work for money, not have it handed to you! And I think that if I have to take a drug test to go to work and support YOUR ass, then you better have to take one to get that money!! I’m running for president! lol j/k…it wouldn’t change anything. Now, do you think I made the right choice? Or should I have let it go?

I’ve been called

At work lately, during our down time, we have been playing a lot of Modern Warfare 3. Unless you live in a box, you know what I’m talking about. It can be quit addicting, something my brother knows all about. The kid NEVER stops playing! Let me give you a typical day in the life of my brother, who I’d like to mention is 20 (soon to be 21).

He wakes up, turns on his computer and xBox. He doesn’t even go eat or anything, literally rolls out of bed and turns on the electronics. He starts playing MW3 and doesn’t stop. He might take the occasional break to run downstairs and grab food or a soda, but then straight back to the game. He’s got his computer next to him, opened on World of Warcraft, playing that in between games. The kid literally sits there ALL DAY! (He clearly didn’t get the ADHD genes I did.) Finally, sometime after midnight, usually between 3-5am he goes to bed. Then back up between 7-8am to start playing MW3 again. Don’t get me wrong, from time to time he will turn the xBox off to go to dinner with his dad (only because dad buys whatever he wants) and he’ll turn on a movie or watch the sports channel, but that’s it…that’s his life. The kid has no job, failed out of college…he’s going no where.

Now, I love playing Call of Duty! But I have to play it in big groups because I can’t stay focused, I have to keep passing the controller. I really don’t know how he can play that long. Even several kids at work do it. I guess to each is own. But after watching my brother grow up, I know I’ll be raising my kids differently. They will spend more time outside like I did and less time on video games. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not banning them from video games, but they will not have a tv or system in their room. Time will be limited. I want my kids to grow up like I did, playing outside no matter what. The street lights were your sign that it was time to go in. Playing games with friends, soccer, baseball, kickball, wiffle ball, tag, hide’n’seek, flashlight tag…boy I miss those days! I miss the simplicity of being a kid! And I think anyone my age will agree…we sure do miss those days!

If it’s a crappy day, like it is here, I will be inside getting my ass kicked on xBox, if you care to join my name is Squirt3387.
