Oh the HORROR!!!

So here's the thing. I love horror movies. The more times some's head gets chopped off, the better! Horror movies rock, they are creepy and gross and everything my life is not! The terrible and sad thing is most horror movies SUCK. A lot of them are terrible low budget films with terrible acting and terrible sets. Case in point..."Haunted Woods." Plot, it's alright...I could get into it...cinematography...kind of creepy but I enjoy that, acting...HORRIBLE and it makes me sad. Almost every plot seems to have so much potential but between the bad acting and the bad special effects, the root of the story falls apart. So what I'm trying to say is that, a good horror movie is hard to find. So if anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them because "Haunted Woods" just isn't cutting it!

Oh and here's a picture...but it's icky, so don't look if you get scared easily!

bane of my existence

Ick. So being a nursing student in the last semester of a four year education, I have to study for this NCLEX-RN exam...it's computerized and sucky. You have to answer a minimum of 75 questions but it's possible to answer 165 or something ridiculous like that! So this exam is adaptive and as you answer questions correctly it will give you harder questions and the level of passing is pre-set and if by the end of 75 questions you're answering one right and one wrong at the predetermined level you pass. Lickitty split, juuuust like that *insert snaping and winking motions*. I can't focus long enough to answer 50 questions much less 165, I'll die. I'll be sitting in my chair, in front of the computer, in a room filled with other people taking various licencing tests and I'll fall over right then an there once question 76 pops up. The test proctors will have to pick up my lifeless body from the floor as the entire room stares, panic-stricken. Maybe they'll get an automatic pass. Med cards are hard, I've never heard of 50% of the medications in this large and heavy (but as the company puts it, "convenient and portable for on-the-go studying") box. So as I sit at my computer, putzing around, I try in vain to go over each category of medications but to no avail I'm forgetting each one I pick up and the list of medications we are supposed to know gets longer and longer with each week. Double ick.

a. - lacking social grace and assurance, causing embarrasement.

So Terry is pretty much the cutest thing EVER! But that's not what this is about. It seems my life is full of awkward turtle moments. Seriously, moments that are so painfully awkward that you just can't help laughing. Moments that make you think to yourself, "is this seriously happening? am I seriously having this conversation right now, did I serioulsy just do that? did they see my face, my face that says, 'oh crap, I can't believe that just happened'". People must think I'm nuts...but I guess that's something I'll have to live with. Everyone has a comfort zone and mine was recently VIOLATED this weekend, but it's my own fault...but that doesn't make it anyless awkward. Even the WORD awkward is awkward, really. More to come. I wish I had a TV crew with me but they wouldn't be able to capture my inner monologue as it happens, which is really the best part.
