COMPUTER [21 Nov 2006|03:48am]
[ mood | curious ]

Ok....I have been really proud of myself lately...im studying hard, preparing to move to cali and budgeting quite well!
Today I decided that I was sick of how my moms computer was acting and tha tI was going to fix it. So I took it apart. The entire thing. I have never worked on a computer a day in my life and I am happy to say that I did a good job :-D The computer guy said our fan wasnt working and thats why our computer would randomly restart, becaue it was over heating itself. I asked if we could just replace the fan, he sid it would be pricy and probly not help. This computer normally only stays on for about 45 minutes before it restarts. I am proud to say that after I cleaned everything and put it back together that it has stayed on for three hours now!

...now for the problem....

The internet refuses to do certain things. For example; post blogs on myspace (the box you type in wont pop up) if you are on a site viewing pics or info and click on a 'next page' or similar link, it does nothing. I cannot reply to e-mails or do alot of things on myspace. I cleaned out wha tI know of the computer and started searching for the problem. (at this point I was still pritty confident). Acording to windows XP, its the Javascript that isnt working. So I started researching javascript....thats where I screwed myself. There are all these terms and abbreviations that I dont understand. I have read about 10 pages and I still have no clue what javascript is! However, I have learned alot about basic coding and cookies. I didnt know about any of that a few hours ago.

...to get to my point....Does anyone know anything about javascript or how I figure out what kinda jave script I need for this computer?

Lyrics [03 Nov 2006|05:42pm]
[ mood | crazy ]

I've always wondered the actual words to this song!!!

The Banana Boat Song is a traditional Jamaican Calypso folk song, whose best-known version was sung by Harry Belafonte and is the most well-known calypso. It is a song from the point of view of dock workers working the night shift loading bananas onto ships. Daylight has come, the shift is over and they want their work to be counted up so that they can go home (this is the meaning of the lyric "Come, Mr. Tally Man, tally me banana/ Daylight come and we wanna go home.")

Day-o, Day-o
Daylight come and me want go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day-o
Daylight come, and me want go . . .

Work all night on a drink of rum!
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Stack banana 'till the morning come!
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Come Mr. Tally Man, tally me banana
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Come Mr. Tally Man, tally me banana
(Daylight come and me want go home)

Lift 6 foot, 7 foot, 8 foot bunch!
(Daylight come and me want go home)
6 foot, 7 foot, 8 foot bunch!
(Daylight come and me want go home)

Day, me say day-o
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day-o
(Daylight come and me want go home)
A beautiful bunch of ripe banana!
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Hide the deadly black tarantula!
(Daylight come and me want go home)

Lift 6 foot, 7 foot, 8 foot bunch!
(Daylight come and me want go home)
6 foot, 7 foot, 8 foot bunch!
(Daylight come and me want go home)

Day, me say day-o
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day-o
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Come Mr. Tally Man, tally me banana
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Come Mr. Tally Man, tally me banana
(Daylight come and me want go home)

Day-o, Day-o
Daylight come and me want go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day-o
(Daylight come and me want go home)[3]

sleepy time [18 Oct 2006|03:30pm]
[ mood | sleepy ]

It's nine thirty in the morning...I just got off work.
I'm living with my parents for a while, so that is where I am at. Mom is in the middle of having downstaris remodeled. There is guys down stairs putting in new carpet and slate tiling and they are doing it nicly but very noisily! *Bang!* *slam* *crash!*..over and over and over. I need to go to bed but I'm staying in the guest room downstairs. So I get to sleep in Josh's (little brother) bedroom upstairs....It smells bad in here...but I smell bad from working at the Sugar factory all night. (the money is well worth the smell!)
Speaking of that....work was awesome last night! I hauled ass and I got ALOT of compliments on how I work and get along with everyone :) *smiles*
The first two night I worked there, everyone kinda avoided me and assumed that because I have piercings, tattoos and blues hair, that I am a bad person. now that people know me they really like me. That is an awesome feeling! I make my coworkers laugh so hard! Someone told me last night tha tI keep her awake by makeing her smile! :-D

WEll....good night all...im realy to passout!

blah to the max [18 Oct 2006|01:34am]
[ mood | content ]

Im so tired :-D But thats ok I guess cause I'm a happy tired! I've only worked 5 nights so far. Thats not alot really, but it is when you think that they are 12 hour shifts and they go from 10pm to 10am. I've been working my ass off to get enough money to get a car. This job is 21 days no days off. Then I have a job after this one that is more permanit. But this job is $10 an hour, 12 hour shifts, 7days a week...anything over 40 hours a week is pay and a half. After taxes I should be getting about $2,730 for my three weeks. I work hard and im showing them I can handle it. Ive been working 5 days and Ive seen nine people quit and they started when or after I did. Ive earned a good reputation there for being a very hard and generous worker and a goof ball! The people who dont know me always refer to me as 'the girl with the blue hair'.
I'm thinking about moving back to Oceanside. I have two awesome friends here. Jessie and Drex. I mean, I have alot of friends here, but no one I relaly see on a daily basis or anything. Jessie leaves for Sun Valley on monday because she got a great job up there. Thats about 4 hours away from here. Drex is leaving in 92 days because he was excepted to a great diving school in Santa Barbra.
I cant afford to finish school unless I take out a student loan. Here is how they work: They pay off your classes and your books and you dont pay them back untill you get your degree. UNLESS you fail a class or drop a class AND you have to take at least 20 credits a semester. So I need to be able to pay for a car and work my ass off so I can go to school. Im thinking that I might just wait untill next June. You know, work 2 jobs go to school untill june, keep saving my money, live with my parents till then. Then take everything and move to Cali! I'll need to find a roomate and a job before I move there or something like that. Its alot to think about.
In the mean time, I'd like to come visit soon. My last trip to Oceanside was a nightmare! Just one desaster after another! I'd like to take the greyhound down there this time. Its a long 3 day relaxing ride, no worries, no stress. I wont fly because I'm saving my money and a plane ticket is $800 where a bus ticket is about $100. So I could take the bus there, but there would I stay? If I got a hotel room it would be about $50 a night. Lets say 5 nights is $250. Total with the ticket that makes $350. Not to mention if I take the bus I have no car. SO I would have to rely on people comming to see me. you know how much that would suck? Last time I was there I hardly saw anybody. I think with about $600 I could afford a decent trip. But again, I wouldnt be able to run back and forth. It'd be nice if I had somewhere to stay down in Oceanside other than a hotel, but I dont see that one happening.
Anyway...thats my train of thought.
In more recent hopes....I want to take Drex up to Boise and see Jasah! (I probly spelled that wrong)!!!

well [16 Oct 2006|01:08am]
[ mood | calm ]

Ok...again...drama. Life seems to have large events here and there that massivly im[act everything I do. I've come to realize something. No matter how bad it gets, I can always pick myself up. OK so in June, I got in a car crash leaving me in a wheel chair for a couple months and massive surgeries, then Jason beat the shit outta me so I moved out, I lost my job because I was in a wheelchair. So, no job, no house, no car and no boyfriend. So, I moved in with a friend, worked my ass off to get better and got a new job to get a new car. The other day I confronted my 'roomate' about things she has been doing latly. She flipped out and I told her I'd had enough and I wasnt going to live there anymore. SO....now Im living with my parents. I hate that because no one will come visit me because the house is way out in the country. But none-the-less, I still have a job (did I mention it pays ten dollars an hour?) and I can afford a new car in about a month. As far as the boyfriend thing, it'd be nice if I had someone to talk to. It's gone beyond trusting someone. I have had no human contact for 4 days except for those I work with.
I am going to keep my head up and realize that I can always fix my mistakes or I can move on.
ON a happier note, Im posting pics hat I havent put on here :)
I've really gotten into taking pictures, so someof them are really off the wall! I normally take freaky pictures of myself, so if you get to scared, just look away ;)

Have fun!

Ya know...after putting all these pics on here, I realize exaclty how many pictures I take !I truely am addicted

I just need to type for a bit.... [11 Jun 2006|05:25pm]
[ mood | confused ]

So yeah. Ive been going out alot more lately.
I have to move because Jasons mom doesnt want me living in her house anymore. She doesnt live here, she just owns it because it is Jason's grandma's house. He and I talked a few months ago about me buying the house. SO I got approved for the loan and all that and ready to pay it off and out of no where she wants me to leave. So I dont relaly understand.
Jason and I werent getting along at all for about a month. Now tha tI know I am moving out and most likely seeing him about one day a month, I have ben trying to get used to not seeing hime. I rely on him now. That kinda happens after being with someone for 2 years. You get used to them being there at times and helping you with things. and vice-versa. I need to pack all my stuff up and get a storage. My dinning room set, my furniture and all that. I have worked on building up this house since I moved in because I was told I could buy it. SO now that I have a home, I have to leave again. That seems to have happened alot since I moved here.
So I will most likely be renting a room somewhere. I have relied on Jasons car for so long because its newer and takes SO much less gas than his camero or my jeep. But I cant drive that anymore either.
So I have decided to buy a brand new truck. Right now being mobile is alot more important than finding a home. I need to find a new truck by the 24th. Aint that a bitch? But Ill figure something out. I have test drove 30 cars this week. I am sold on the 03 Ford Ranger super cab. but its about $5,000 outta my price range. It would be nice to take to cali tho.
I asked Zack if he wanted to go to CAli with me. Mainly because I dont want to drive that far alone. But the thing is this, I dont want to be alone on the trip, but I need to be alone once I get there. I dont want to worry about if he is having fun or not. The first week hanging out with Zack was awesome. He was fun and wierd and liked doing things I thought only I liked.
But lately things have gotten really frustrating!!! If I dont act happy for 2 minutes then he asks 'whats wrong' over and over than gets annoyed because he assumes that he did soemthing wrong! Soemtimes I jsut get tires. He can sleep all night when I have to work graveyard shift. I sleep like on day for 9 hours, then I dont sleep for 3-4 days at a time. The other day I was falling asleep standing up so I sat down and kinda just zoned out on his chair. He got all freaked out again like I was pissed cause he fucked up. But I wasnt mad or anything 1I sware! I was jsut really tired! But he got really upset. So he moved stuff out of the corner and rolled himself into a ball and hid in the cornor....how the hell and I supposed to respond to that?So I got ready for work and left. HE lives in walking distance of my work so I told Jason to keep the car cause I could walk. After I walked out the door he started banging on the walls and throwing shit. the neighbor kids walked up to me to ask me why. I said he is just jumping around.
I went out last night.
Without jason and without Zack. No attachment to anyone. just me and my friends. WE went out on the jet boats along the river and had a good damn time!
but when I called Zacks house today (because he called my cell 7 times but I left it in the car) some girl answers the phone, then hands it to some dude I know wasnt zack, then finally they say im a freak and hung up the phone.
This is why I am afraid to go out and have fun. I always get yelled at by someone. But when I came home to Jason last night (we still ive together but I slept on the couch) he woke up in the morning and asked if I had a good time. Its times like taht when I regret our parting. Maybe I could have worked a little harder at our relationship.
To be fully honest I WANT to work harder to keep what we have. But I will save that for a more proivate update.
Not like anyone will really read this anyway. Its kinda too long for most people to waste their time on.
Basically: Im moving, im buying a trck, Im afraid to take Zack to CAli, I miss Jason, and I REALLY like going out with my friends

I suppose it IS time for an update in my life...ummmmmmmmm...ok

-Jason's parents asked me to move out of the house. Its not THEIR house, but they own this one. As in they live elce where.
-That means that after a 2 year relationship, Jason and I are over
-That also means that I wont be driving the car to CAli.
-Therefore I have decided to invest in a brand new car of my own because there is no way in hell I am driving the jeep to Oceanside!
-So I have found a truck. A ford....Im nto sure how I feel about that. I am going to test drive it today.
-Zack is going to california with me.
-I will have to explain Zack later because there is ALOT to tell!!!!

Summary: I have no house, Im getting a new truck, Zack and I are driving to Oceanside on the 28th

Still planning my trip back to Oceanside. Kinda stuck cause I dont wanna druive my jeep cause of the gas. (0ver $70 bucks to fill my tank) But Im too young to rent a car.

any one have any ideas?

Other then that, nothing relaly has happened latly.

Happy New Years to all!!

Today I went to my moms house to get my keyboard and say hello. Yes I said my moms house. I am officially moved out! Thats the good news!
I got fired from my old job for being $4.97 over in the till. I had too much money, so I got fired. The rule is that you can never be more than $2.00 over or under, and I broke the rules.
Im going to find a new job when I get back from Utah.
the trip is a little over a week away. Im getting kinda nervous. But I will Survive. No Worries.
I tried to clean up today, but I didnt get alot done. I am finishing up the laundry and I got the kitchen almost done. I really need to work on that back bedroom but I cant find the energy.
Raymond was over today. He and Jason spent most of the day in the studio goofing around. I cooked them dinner and then that was it. Nothing really fun.
There is alot of work that needs to be done here. More like alot of organizing. If anyone comes to visit me now, they can stay at MY house! Not my moms! How cool is that!?!? no one elces rules.
But then there is rent and bills and stuff I should worry about...but I cant think about that untill im back from Utah.
It hasnt snowed here in a couple days. Its not that cold this winter.

Im going to be productive tommorow!!!.....I hope!

Bad Crash [01 Oct 2005|09:31am]
My little brother, Josh was in a bad bad crash the other day. They had to cut him out of the car. Here is the article:


Teens injured in crash with potato truck

By Becky Cook South Idaho Press correspondent
Saturday, October 1, 2005 12:42 AM CDT

RUPERT - Wednesday was a tragic day for one Rupert family after a nearly head-on collision left a young man feeling lucky to be alive.

Josh Johnson, 17, had missed the bus and was waiting for a ride at Minico High School. He ended up catching a ride with Morgan West, also 17. Shortly thereafter the 1992 Subaru Legacy was destroyed when it collided with a loaded potato truck at the intersection directly in front of the school.

"He was sitting in the turn lane with his blinker on to turn left when the truck approached." said Loriann Johnson, Josh's mother. "It had its blinker on to turn left also."

Since the truck slowed down, the teens said they assumed it was turning and made their turn in front of it, only to be hit nearly head on. West walked away from the crash with multiple bruises and cuts. But Johnson had to be extracted from the car.

All three occupants of the car were transported to area hospitals, said a representative of Idaho State Police. No information was available about the condition of the third occupant.

Johnson's mother and father, coach Mike Johnson of Minico High School, were called to Minidoka Memorial Hospital after Josh arrived but said they were given only the assurance their son was still alive.

"We didn't know how bad he was injured or anything," Loriann Johnson said. Once they arrived at the hospital, the story wasn't much better; they weren't allowed to see him but their pastor was.

"It scared me to death," Loriann Johnson said. "I automatically assumed the worst."

Once Josh was evaluated he was moved to Cassia Regional Medical Center where he stayed until Thursday night. Today, he is at home resting but has a swollen liver, several bruised ribs, a sprained shoulder and a severe headache, his family said.

Josh says he doesn't remember the few minutes leading up to the accident but rescue workers said his body was hit by the front bumper and the front tire went over his shoulder. The low dashboard in the car was driven into his knees, which are also swollen.

The family said doctors hope Josh will be able to return to school Monday, but Josh said he won't feel comfortable going with his face so swollen.

The driver of the truck, a 1995 Freightliner, was not taken to the hospital.

The accident is still under investigation, according to Idaho State Police, and no further information is available.

Accidents escalate during harvest season as additional dust and traffic on roads can make visibility less than ideal. Motorists are urged to use the utmost care when passing or approaching harvest trucks as they are larger and have limited visibility.

Trigeminal Neuralgia, my illness [17 Sep 2005|10:40pm]
[ mood | crappy ]

I have to work again tommorow. but so far I am really liking work. I was accepted really fast. People I have only known a week are asking for my opinion and advice. I feel needed. I like it.

I went to the doctor on wednesday. Found out more information on TN (Trigeminal Neuralgia). The doctors tel me that since I am so young, the illness will quicken and take a more painful affect on me. Every morning I have to wake up and take a balence test before I get a shot. According to my doctor, loosing my ballence is a sign that the ilness is progressing to a more intence stage. 89% of people begin to loose their balence before sezures start.
I have the definition memorized, but for those of you who dont, here it is again:
What is Trigeminal Neuralgia?
Trigeminal neuralgia, also called tic douloureux, is a condition that affects the trigeminal nerve (the 5th cranial nerve), one of the largest nerves in the head. The trigeminal nerve is responsible for sending impulses of touch, pain, pressure, and temperature to the brain from the face, jaw, gums, forehead, and around the eyes. Trigeminal neuralgia is characterized by a sudden, severe, electric shock-like or stabbing pain typically felt on one side of the jaw or cheek. The disorder is more common in women than in men and rarely affects anyone younger than 50. The attacks of pain, which generally last several seconds and may be repeated one after the other, may be triggered by talking, brushing teeth, touching the face, chewing, or swallowing. The attacks may come and go throughout the day and last for days, weeks, or months at a time, and then disappear for months or years.

When the pain starts, it makes working really hard. But I have started to understand it more. I know I cannot contain it, but I have learned to controll my emotions when it happens.

I hav another MRI this wednesday. Wish me luck!
As for a cure for TN, this is what I have found.....
Surgical Options: Non-Destructive Procedures

The only non-destructive procedure which reliably relieves the symptoms of Trigeminal Neuralgia is Microvascular Decompression (MVD). This involves surgical exploration with the operating microscope and visualization of the junction where the Trigeminal nerve enters the base of the brain, followed by coagulation or moving and padding away any compressing blood vessels. The advantage is pain relief without numbness in the majority of patients, which usually lasts indefinitely. If the pain recurs after a MVD, which it does in 10-15% of patients, it can usually be controlled with low dose Tegretol® or Neurontin®. If the pain continues, it will require a repeat MVD or one of the destructive procedures.

Surgical Options: Destructive Procedures

There are multiple destructive procedures which are beneficial in the treatment of Trigeminal Neuralgia. The most common of which are glycerol injections, gamma knife radiation, electrocoagulation, and balloon compression. These procedures are all based on interrupting the pain by partial damage to Trigeminal nerve fibers. Generally the more numbness they produce, the longer they last. The specific advantages and disadvantages need to be discussed with the surgeon performing the procedure. These procedures are recommended for patients who have failed MVD or are not candidates for major surgery.
