Peeves, Pleasures, Pressures, and Plans...

I fully plan to address them in that order...


The street sign you see above is a flippin' J-O-K-E!!! There is one just up the street from my house where the county put in a oh so lovely crosswalk. Firstly, the crosswalk is in a very DUMB place. It is just down from the top of a hill that people FLY over. My street is a major cut though street for about three subdivision to get to a highway AND a grocery shopping center. The speed limit ( that is enforced) is supposed to be 25 MPH and most people do about...oh I would say...40 MPH. My kids are NOT allowed to play out front without an adult for this very reason!

Any ways on to my peeve..NO ONE EVER STOPS! I could be like halfway though the the "cross walk" during my runs and it is more like a game of "Pedestrian Hit and Run" then "Hey, I should be safe I am in a frickin' cross walk." The only vehicle that has EVER stopped for me is a UPS truck..which I personally find ironic...Everyone else blows though...I cross the street at a sprint when I have almost nothing left with my eyes up the hill hoping I don't have to dive onto the concrete patch that is the sidewalk on the other side...It irritates me every time!!

If you are playing Pedestrian Hit and Run you get negative points for hitting someone in a crosswalk with a "Yield/Stop when occupied" sign...because you are an ass wipe!


Running make me happy....Running makes me feel strong and happy and regulates my hormones. I love that I have logged almost 40 miles so far this month...I challenged myself earlier in the month to see if I could run everyday. I missed a few...and by a few I mean 6 of the last 26 days....But something was different this time. I didn't let the fact that I had broken my streak stop me...Which is new for me...In the past I would "fail" and I couldn't get past it and I would let it completely derail me...Not this time...I even ran with a blister! I LOVES IT!!


I am currently in the process of taking the CPA exam. For those of you that don't know how it works there are four parts (five if you count the self study, group, open book ethics thing) each one ranges from three to four hours each and must be past with a 75 or better on a percentile. It is GRUELING!! It has me stressed out!

I also started a new job. I am good at my job...but I feel like I have to PROVE that they made the right choice and they feel like they have to prove to me that they are the right firm for me...there is lots of proving going on at my
