so now i see through your eyes, all that you did was love

Not the usual type of post that I would make but I think I'll give it a go.

So today is Mother's Day. Since I have a good job and for once I make a decent chunk of change, I decided to get Ice Crotch something nice for MD. I went to Macy*s (which is like my DisneyLand) with Dora and found this pretty peridot journey necklace and just my luck - it was on sale! Ice Crotch actually cried when she saw it and I'm glad I could make her happy for once! While yes, she annoys the shit out of me on a regular basis I know deep down that she is really not that bad. When I think back to all of the crazy things that I have done (and still continue to do) I realize how much my mother has had to put up with. Not to mention she had to put up with it ALONE. I think I've mentioned this before but one thing that I hope to take from my mother is her self-sufficency. She did not marry until she was older (and had time to travel when younger) and when my father passed away, she was able to bounce right back up and raise her eight year old daughter as a newly single mom. It was as if she almost did not have time to grieve because she had to work on being strong for me. We are two entirely different people and I guess that is where our fighting comes from, because neither of us really understand each other. I hardly say this but I truly appreciate and love her for all that she has done for me. Happy Mother's Day, Ice Crotch.

So finals came and went and I am officially down with St. John's!! I have never been so relieved in my life! I completely trashed theology - the class is not transferring over so who cares what my grade is?! Instead of writing a research paper relating my own personal religious experience on the class, I wrote a completely opinion-based paper on why I think catholicism is bullshit. Then since I did not study for the final, I wrote my professor a rhyming story on the paper. I figured it was better than submitting a blank test. I will probably never have the opportunity to not care again so why not make the best out of it?

Cutting this short because I am absolutely exhausted and wish to join my cuddly pug in bed!
