Always thankful

Argal would say it's because she's psychic and told me so....

Freaky would say it's due to a thong clad booty....

Kasandra would say cuz that's just how we do....

DeepNThought would say cuz I'm wonderful if life wasn't keeping her busy....

and I can't think of what others would say at this very moment so I'll stop! LOL

But, I got an A in my Eval and Measurement class. I honestly can say that I don't feel like I earned it. There is an area on the computer that keeps track of your grades and a few of my grades were not so stellar. When all the grades except the final and 4 assignments were up I placed what I thought my grades would honestly be and came up with a B being my final grade. I was okay with that. Then as he posted grades this weekend one by one I was stunned! Deep down I think he HAD to have curved those grades. I won't complain like I would if I would have gotten a D, I'll just be thankful and keep it moving.

Physics starts tomorrow! Happy Happy Joy Joy *eyeroll* I'm thankful the pain will only last 5 weeks compared to 3 months.

This weekend I went to Common Denominator's graduation. I swear she gets on my nerves more often than not, but I went. It was a nice ceremony. They had 2 student speakers and the commencement speaker. You would think the crowd would have been bored to tears but all 3 speakers were great! I can only hope the speaker(s) at my graduation will be as engaging. Sunday I was chillin. Pooka and I got our Wii on a few times and my left shoulder and bicep are sorta irritated, but it was fun. Oh yeah, my laptop caught a virus and died. The whole virus catching thing was my fault so I can't be but so sad. I have 2 desktops, well I have one and Pooka has one, and the laptop made me hook them up. Why is Pooka's computer better than mine? I mean really! I gotta buy this hub and that hub and all her stuff was already ready already! LOL! Since today is payday I am going to go to the goodwill and see if they have a small sturdy desk to put in Pooka's room. What her computer is on now is sturdy, just too low to the floor. I am thankful that I have folks to hand Pooka and I free tech stuff. Me buying my own laptop in the fall is going to hurt my feelings! LOL

This afternoon I meet my subject for the research study. I am excited about it. I am not that excited about having to wash my hair 3 times a week for the next 3 months but whatever, I'll get over it. One major benefit is that I will definitely be working out at least 3 times a week and I am slowly forcing myself away from fast food again. It's just not healthy for me or Pooka. So I should see some physical changes in me in a month or two. I'm not even counting me working and having access to gym equipment 5 days a week(whenever they put me on). With all that going I have no choice but to get better physically. YAY! I am thankful for the opportunity to do research therapeutic research, get paid, and get healthier.

If you didn't know, the monthly theme is birthdays. Share a story (good, bad, or whatever) about a birthday/birthday celebration of yours that you won't forget for whatever reason.

Thong clad booty is the answer. It's always the answer. Mmm thong clad booty. *slurp*

Did you even crack open the physics book while playing all of this Wii? You mentioned your shoulder and arm but is your booty sore from Pooka whooping up on it again? LOL

I don't know about the birthday post. My birthdays typically suck and I'm not talking the good kind that ends with my eyes rolled up in the back of head, weak, and mildly dehydrated either. :o(

kasandra said...

Girllll you know that's how we do...LOL!!! You go!!!! I guess I can do a birthday post, but it's gonna reference back to one of my older post. Yeah I'm taking the lazy route this time cuz I don't know if everyone has read it. But congrats again!!!!

Thoughts of a Southern gal said...

You bet not complain about that A.

I can't recall any memorable birthdays. Hopefully this bday will be different.

Ladynay said...

*smh*

Ummmmm nah, Imma do that tonight...yeah tonight. LOL! I actually held my own yesterday YAY!

Okay talk about a sucky one then.

Kasandra, You're silly. Retro posts aren't against the law :-) Thank you.

Southern, Trust me I won't.

Come on, I know you had that gift from lil O that made you teary or something one birthday...

Monique said...

Thong clad booty or not, you got that A! you go girl! I'm sure you'll have another one with the upcoming class. Congrats to you.

blkbutterfly said...

congrats on the A!

do you think so much washing will run a number on your locs?

E said...

Congrats on getting the "A". I hear you about not complaining about it even if you weren't sure you earned it. It definitely could've been worse.

Most memorable b-day....good or bad. I'd have to say my first trip to Vegas in 2003. It was a bit bittersweet since it reminded me of the trip I never took with my ex-girlfriend and how in retrospect I wished I had gone, especially considering the good time I had. I enjoyed seeing Zumanity that night as well.

TrinaBeingTrina said...

COngrats on that A. And don't ever underestimate a thong clad booty. Hahaha. Anyway don't be messing with that Wii. It will have you all jacked up.

Ladynay said...

Mo, the next class is Physics and since you're fairly new to my boring life...I prayed for a C in Physics one and it's the one class that I literally cried in class cuz I was so frustrated.

BB, Thanks! My subject had to drop out the study so I don't have to figure out the hair issue until later :-(

E, Thanks!

I will go to Vegas before I'm 30! Bet on that! I have no clue what Zumanity is but I'll look it up.

Darius T. Williams said...

Um, so yea - congrats on the A. Isn't it just wonderful when you strive sooo damn hard and you can clearly see your efforts paying off? That's good - so congrats.

Um, about that birthday thing. I don't know. I never really do it up quite that big for my birthday. Although when I turned 21 I did put on one hell of a party at an art gallery here in chicago. I think there were about 200 people there. My mother was actually the bartender. It was a fun time. A great party - and you know what? 6 years later some people are STILL talking about the party. I think I may celebrate again when I turn 30. This is huge for me simply because I've never celebrated while I was growing up. So, now that I'm grown, I think it's time to start recognizing the mere fact that I've been given yet another year to get more things accomplished.

Ladynay said...

Trina, I paid too much for the Wii to let it continue to collect dust :-)

Darius, that's the thing, I didn't work as hard as I normally do for his class :-(

200 people? Ummm yeah that's a good party! LOL!

at least for plies

AR Gal said...

I'm late but.....CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I'm no psychic, cause if I was I would have figured out why I'm not a bazillionaire by now (lol). I just know that people recognize hard work AND determination...both are qualities that you posses.

Good luck getting that A in Physics *wink*

ROTFLMBAO @ Torrance!

AR Gal said...

I meant to type this but his publish.

I wash my hair about 2-3 times/week now. The summer is cruel, do ya hear me??!! Not only is it hard to breathe with the humidity but working out (especially outside) wreaks havoc on the hair follicles (read sweat, lol) so I'm pretty much forced to. I actually enjoy it as it's relaxing to me. Just think, it could be worse....you could be using a shoe shine rag to shine a bald head....:-)

Ladynay said...

T, it's the next single off his album! :-)

Argal, If I get an A in Physics I swear you will be able to hear me screaming in Arkansas! LOL

I'll just see what washing my hair so much will do to it in a few weeks. My subject dropped out so I won't have to start the routine for a few more weeks.

Tasha said...

Congrats on the A!

Shank yah! :-D
