Food Blog

Ok, so I've had some requests to make a food/cooking blog. I haven't decided if I will make a new blog or have occassional food posts on this one. If, however, I decide to go ahead with this, just know that I will most likely make a new one because cooking doesn't go along with the sassyness of I'm Just Sayin'. Also, that the post will be few and far between, as I cook something worth blogging about. It wont be a Julie and Julia type thing because most of the recipes will be my own. When they aren't I will give the correct person credit! I don't pretend to be an awesome cook, to tell the honest truth before college I rarely if ever cooked anything, and often messed it up somehow to which my parents can attest. I just started playing with stuff and found that I love it, and am fairly good about it! I haven't had any complaints so far. Plus I would much rather cook for others than myself. So, all who are reading this please leave your opinion on the comments section. Thanks much!

And say your prayers
Cuz finals week comes tonight.

Working Class Girl

So, as you might have guessed from the title of this post I am now a working girl. Who'da thunk it? Naturally I wowed them with my knowledge, experience, and speech skills. Not really. Maybe the whole knowledge and experience thing. Anyways so, there is a lady in both my phonetics and language development class. We talked but never really too much. She sits like 3 rows in front of me and always gets better grades than me. So obviously, I would avoid her because I tend to put my foot in my mouth and say the wrong things. I really do have a problem with this. Anyone who knows me knows that I don't have a filter. I say whatever comes, so the fact that they hired me after they spoke to me for 40 minutes is a miracle in and of itself.

Where was I? Oh. Ok. So the lady, Alisa asked me randomly if I wanted a job; to which my reply was yes. She gave me a brief job description, and another lady's email to send her my resume. I rummaged up my resume (which needed some twiqueing because I haven't used it since high school... don't judge) and sent it to her. She almost immediately called me and set up an interview for the next day.

I was surprisingly not nervous at the interview, and just went with the flow. At first I didn't think that I would get it. I received a call that same evening, that I didn't answer because my phone was in a different room, saying that they would call me tomorrow because they hadn't made the decision yet. I thought for sure that I was going to get booted. It was like the "I'm telling you I will call you tomorrow to tell you that we didn't pick you so it looked like we struggled over the decision to let you go" type call. ANYWHO, so she, Jami, called me earlier this afternoon and asked me if I would like to accept the position. I said yes. Inside I was screaming "YES! YES! YES! WOOT WOOT!!" just because this is almost what I will do with my degree so obviously I love it, and want some experience.

My first day is on Monday, Dec. 6th where I will be trained, go through a background check, and be fingerprinted. The process is so extensive because I will be working with kids. But not only that, I will be working with kids who have disabilities. I will be working as a developmental therapist to children, adolescents, and adults with any type of developmental disability, often one on one. Maybe they are afraid I would kidnap them or something? Doesn't matter 'cause I am too excited! I start shadowing with another therapist on Wednesday. I can't remember his name but he is around my age or older (20's for sure) and is a student, so we should get along great. Unless he is a weirdy. I seem to attract those.... hmm... maybe I should look into that....

So be very excited for me! Cause I get to help kids with disabilities! Which is important!

I'm just sayin'

It's My BIRTHDAY!!!!!

So, as it is December the 1st, my birthday is coming up in 10 days! TEN DAYS!!!! So, I thought I would share my thoughts on birthday rules!

Rule #1. Just because it is called a "birthday suit" does NOT mean that you can wear it on your birthday....or any other day for that matter. Keep your pants on. Literally.

Rule #2..... hmmm.... it seems I have run out of rules. I guess it's just the one then. Don't run around naked on your birthday.

I'm just sayin'


Come on, seriously gentlemen. Why is it that when you touch a boy he automatically assumes that you want a relationship, and want to marry him? Is it not possible to be an affectionate person, and just want to be friends and take the time to get to know someone? Apparently, we ladies have magic cooties that scare a boy when we come in contact with them. No, we are not poisonous, and it is quite possible that we can be outgoing people. Also NO, this does not mean that we are coming on to you in anyway, shape or form.

I must have an issue with entitled men. What is it with guys that makes them think that they are so amazing and heavenly that it would be impossible for us not to want to bow down at his feet and be a doormat? Do I look like the type of person who would let you walk all over me? Use me? Dangle something shiny in front of me I'll follow you anywhere! NOT. GOING. TO. HAPPEN. Honestly, what self respecting woman would let someone do that to her?

BOYS: We are intelligent women. We have brains and our own thoughts, feelings, and views on things. We will not adopt yours just because you want us to. And more often than not, we really aren't coming on to you. We are just being kind, and friendly. . We need MEN!! Men who can handle a smart, beautiful, spiritual woman who can stand on her own feet. However, when we do show interest in you and you get scared and run away like a little sissy girl, that interest is gone. Well SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!!!  Heaven forbid we actually be interested in you. There is no need to be frightened by us, we don't have cooties. And we promise that we will not drag you to the temple and force you to marry us.

I'm just sayin'
