ARE YOU A CARROT, AN EGG, OR A COFFEE BEAN?

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved a new one arose. Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water. In the first, she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs and the last she placed ground coffee beans.

She let them sit and boil without saying a word. In about twenty minuets she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her daughter, she asked, "Tell me what you see?" "Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied.

She brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they soft. She then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg. Finally, she asked her to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled, as she tasted its rich aroma.

The daughter then asked. "What's the point, mother?" Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity--boiling water--but each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard and unrelenting. However after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior. But, after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water they had changed the water. "Which are you?" she asked her daughter. "When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?"

You Are 25 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.



only 6 years older than i really am lol is that bad?

To be a kid again *sigh* [09 Nov 2005|07:05pm]
Close your eyes... And go back...

Before the Internet or the AIM

Before semi automatics and weed

Before playstation2 or X-bOX

Before the 5 hours of homework you put off every night...


..Way back...


I'm talkin' bout hide and go seek at dusk.

Red light, Green light.

Playing kickball & dodgeball until your porch light came on.

Mother May I?

Red Rover

four square

Hula Hoops

Running through the sprinkler

Happy Meals

Getting the privelage to sit in the front seat of the car



Wait...

Watchin' Saturday Morning cartoons

Like Hey Arnold and Doug

Recess

Or what about legends of the hidden temple, global guts, double dare, bloody mary and who, ARE YOU AFFRAID OF THE DARK!

Who could forget Snick

Or the teenage mutant ninja turtles, scooby doo, and Power Rangers,


Christmas morning...

Your first day of school

Bedtime Prayers and Goodnight Kisses



Climbing trees

Getting an ice cream off the ice cream truck (the real ice cream truck w/ cones & banana splits)

A million mosquito bites and sticky fingers

Jumpin' down the steps

Jumpin' on the bed

Pillow fights

Runnin' till you were out of breath

Laughing so hard that your stomach hurt and you almost peed your pants

Laughing so hard that you did pee your pants

Being tired from playin' all day

Your first crush...

Rainy days at school meant playing "Heads down 7-Up" & "King chase the Queen" in the classroom

Remember that?


I'm not finished yet...


Kool-Aid & Icee Cups was the drink of the summer

Giving your friends a ride on your handlebars or spokes

Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school

Class Field Trips

When nearly everyone's mom was at home when the kids got there.

When getting high was swinging on the swing-set

When $5 seemed like a million, and another dollar a Miracle.

When your parents took you to McDonalds and you were so cool.

When Toys r Us overuled the "mall"


I want to go back to the time when...


Decisions were made by going "eeny-meeny-miney-moe"

Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, "do over!"

"Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest.

Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in "monopoly"

Catching fireflies could happily occupy an entire evening

It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends.

Saying cuss words were referred to the "F, B or S - word" or h-e double hockey sticks.

Being old, referred to anyone over 20.

The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was cooties.

The only real heart break you had was when your mom wouldnt buy you that new toy

Nobody was prettier than Mom

Nobody was cooler than Dad

Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better

It was a big deal to finally be tall enough to ride the "big people" rides at the amusement park.

Getting an inch of snow was a dream come true.

Abilities were discovered because of a "double-dog-dare"

Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for giggles.


If you can remember most or all of these, then you have LIVED!!!

[ mood | missing you guys ]

I took a walk around the world to
Ease my troubled mind
I left my body laying somewhere
In the sands of time
I watched the world float to the dark
Side of the moon
I feel there is nothing I can do, yeah

I watched the world float to the
Dark side of the moon
After all I knew it had to be something
To do with you
I really don’t mind what happens now and then
As long as you’ll be my friend at the end

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I’m alive and well, will you be
There holding my hand
I’ll keep you by my side with
My superhuman might
Kryptonite

You called me strong, you called me weak,
But still your secrets I will keep
You took for granted all the times I
Never let you down
You stumbled in and bumped your head, if
Not for me then you would be dead
I picked you up and put you back
On solid ground

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I’m alive and well, will you be
There holding my hand
I’ll keep you by my side with my
Superhuman might
Kryptonite

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I’m alive and well, will you be
There holding my hand
I’ll keep you by my side with my
Superhuman might
Kryptonite

Yeah!

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I’m alive and well, will you be there
Holding my hand
I’ll keep you by my side with
My superhuman might
Kryptonite

This just came on the radio and it reminded me of when a few of us went to the 3 doors down concert at ppac :-) good times...miss getting to hang out with you guys!

You scored as Green. You are the color green! People love you because you bring laughter to the crowd, and often lighten sad moods. People can identify with you because you can be both serious and silly. Sometimes people don't understand you because you're up for fun one night and then the next you'd rather sit at home. But no worries, they still love you. How could they resist you? You've got that loveable magnitude no one can stay away from.

Classes are going pretty well, stressfull but i dont think there is a class that hasnt stressed me out before, well maybe band but even then lol. Andrew and I are talking again, nothing serious but its nice to be able to hang out with him and stuff again without it being wicked awkward. My new roomate is wiiiiiiicked better than the two i had last year, she is cool we hang out on the weekends and stuff and she doesnt keep me up till insane hours of the night or wake me up wicked early being noisy so its all good. I went to a play at school last night, School House Rock Live. It was fun, reminded me of high school and going to see everyone in the plays. It was a small lil stage though, it was like the one that the play was on in like 8th grade i want to say, The Sound of Music one...except not as many seats. Sooooo yea thats about it...man im boring lol. I bought my ticket to come home yesterday. Those darn things are getting wicked expensive. Last year at this time i got a ticket for $200 to come home...this year the same airline same day and stuff is $700....SEVEN....thats like a 300% increase ugh. But i found another airline that was a bit less expensive but its still more than i have ever paid to come home before. Anyways i'm gonna get going writing about my life is even starting to bore me lol. Talk to you guys soon! Miss you lots and lots

Love,
AmandaMom

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh [04 Jun 2005|09:28am]
i havent updated in forever although that seems to be the trend among most of you as i read the entries i missed lol

A Few things all of you need to know that will make your life easier:
1. Never fly in a plane after less than 6 hours after you are diagnosed with a double ear infection in one ear,one that isdeveloping in your other, a sinus infection and when the doctor thinks the upper respiratory infection you had a month ago is comingback....itsnot worth the 2 hours of pain in each flight....it was so bad there were tears

2. NEVER take a summer course of chemistry. I dont care how bad you want to graduate...doing three weeks worth fo chemistry when you havent taken in it 3 years in 3 days is NOT WORTH IT.



So yea im taking Chemistry 109...which i thought would be relativly simple...which it is....untillit flies at you at moch speed and hits in you inthe face knockin you to your butt in one hit....so yea im a little stressed about it you could say Have basically been waking up at 6:30...going to class 8-12...lunch on the lawn from 12-12:30...work from 12:30-4:30 with the hot boy i get to train for the summer...4:30-5 eat dinner...5-when i go to sleep chemistry homework/studying (typically sleep occurs around midnight) These days seem so long it feels like i have been here for three weeks already but i have only been in this room for ONE WEEK TODAY! This is going to be the end of me for sure. When i come back in december i may no longer be a forensics major lol

Other than that things are okay...im still breathing...though it is sniffly...im afraid with all the stress from school that my cold will never go away :-/ Hopefully it will though, thats all i would need for the next like 2 and a half months.

Time for more homework...
