the trouble with Tom
J.J. Abrams, Felicity, Joey Potter and the Mission Impossible theme song.
What do all of the above have in common? They have been tarnished by association with Tom Cruise. I despise this man. His whole baseless scientology bit is insane. His ideas about depression and medicine in general are laughable. He plays the same character (basically) in every movie: jerk. Let's review...
M.I.: Hero jerk
Jerry Maguire: sporty jerk
Risky Business: pimpin' jerk
War of the Worlds: i'm getting attacked by aliens JERK
Rain Man: gambling brother jerk
Interview with the Vampire: Jerk vampire
the Last Samuri: the jerk white guy who saves all the poor asian people with his mastery of martial arts and swordplay
the Firm: Lawyer jerk
Top Gun: Pilot jerk
Days of Thunder: Racecar driver jerk
That's all of the movies i can think of off the top of my head. Maybe I can get Jennifer Garner to kick his ass. She would do it. Syndey Bristow can do ANYTHING.

I could not think for a clever title for this post! So I worked my first 40 hour week this past week, and it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was. Actually, it wasn't bad at all. At work I'm basically a glorified proofreader, but I get to listen to my headphones while working, so I'm cool with it. The Chase building is like a mall (I can't get away from the damn mall!). It's got a mini-mart, dry cleaners, Starbucks, Xerox place, and two cafeterias. It might even have it's own gravitational pull.
Anyways, now that I'm busy all the time studying for my GRE re-take (yes, I am a math genius!), working, and spending quality time with friends I am content. It's a very nice feeling. :) Yea!!!

my life plan
Yea I know what you're thinking.. big suprise, Robyn has a plan. Actually it IS kind of a new thing because for the past few months I've been operating without one and although I can do that, it stresses me out. So without further ado... THE LIFE PLAN!
Work at Chase until July
I start on Monday, it's 40hours a week and it's probably going to suck. It's one of those mindless corporate jobs with no world saving potential at all. I'm not even 100% sure what I'll be doing, but I know it will probably not keep me up at night, so I'm ok with it for a few months. Oh, and it pays decently
Get a car
Yea! I'll finally be able to afford one, and I can hand Pat the keys back to Old Blue (The '83 Benz).
Work for Road of Life from July 06-July 07
This is going to rock my world. I'm so excited about this job I can barely contain myself, but I've already written enough about it, so moving on. During this time I'm still going to be living with Joan. My meager salary won't allow for a car payment and rent. It's all good tho.
Move to C-Bus
Me and Mia will then relocate to Columbus, yea!!!
OSU School of Public Health September 2007
Not only am I going to get into the school with my stellar credentials (I mean really, a whole year of health related volunteer work, and a kick ass GPA!), but I'm hoping to get an assitantship to pay for my MPH, the entire MPH. That's why I'm so into math lately, I'm retaking the GRE and bumping up my Math scores. I'm actually really good at math when I know what I'm doing.
And that's as far as I've gone. But I think two years plan is pretty f*ing decent for a girl who didn't know what she was doing at all. I love my plan, let's see how often it changes in the next two years, haha!

I'll probably be doing lots of fundraising and hopefully a little grant writing too. I'm way excited. It starts in July so i'll have to get a crap job until then, but who cares!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Neither a borrower nor a lender be.
I went to listen to one of my old favorite CDs today, it was GONE. I lent it to someone who I can't remember, and now it's gone forever. Then I proceeded to go through my CD and DVD collection to ascertain what else was missing. I realized that a good chunk of my most enjoyed possessions were missing. Had I been robbed??? NO. I've been NICE. "How have I been nice?" do you ask??? Well when I particulary enjoy something such as a book or CD or DVD i'll recommend said item to a person, and often times lend it to them. For some reason, such people seem to think that the word "LEND" implies that i'm GIVING said item to them. There's a reason it's called LENDING folks, because I'd like my shit back.
So do me a favor.Look on in your closet. Is one of my t-shirts in it? Look on your bookshelf. Is one of thebooks/CDs/DVDs that I lent you there? If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, GIVE IT BACK!!!
In the future i'm going to start asking for collateral.
"Can I borrow this DVD?"
"Sure, if I can borrow your cell phone, or YOUR SOUL."

happy birthday TO ME!
My 23rd birthday was a definately a good one. It came in three parts not entirely because I'm a brat and wanted three birthday parties, but because I'm a heathen child of divorce (thanks mom and dad :) and I have friends who live out of town. Part one consisted of dinner with Mom and Pat at Friday's, which was lovely, followed by an appearance from J&E for our usual Wednesday night LOST viewing.
Part II was on Thursday night. I had dinner with Dad, Shell, and Pat. That was also very nice. I have to add that because it was my birthday, at my dinners I have allowed myself to indulge on the "no-no's" of my diet. I had plenty of alcohol, sugar, onions, peppers and ICE CREAM (not all at once of course).
Part III convened on Saturday with Van, Jason, and Elaine driving out to the far reaches of the Earth (a.k.a. Delaware) to go out to dinner with me. We went to bag of nails and had a delicious dinner, lots of vodka sours, and a rousing game of 20 questions, haha! Then we went back to my house and watched "13 going on 30" which I thorougly enjoyed (1) because I was sauced and (2) because I've got a HUGE friend crush on Jennifer Garner.
Overall I had a great birthay, Thanks everybody!!!!
