Life is still crazy and I am determined to get my life back in order THIS WEEK. No excuses! I have a laundry list a mile long and if I get through half of it I will be pleased. The weekend was fun and I hated to see it end. We went to Athens for the UGA/ Vandy game and had a family reunion. Yep, that is how we do it down here ... we all get together to tailgate before a big game once a year and call it our family reunion. Works for me! I got to hang out with my brother which is always fun because he is a riot. He is in college and doesn't come home too much but we always have such a good time when we all get together. He is too cute as well ... if any of you need a sweet southern boyfriend I am taking applications! haha.
Told ya he was a cutie. Anyways, we went to the same college but he was a freshman when I was a senior and we were only there together for one semester because I did an internship in Jacksonville, Florida my last semester. We know a lot of the same people though and I am always trying to get the latest and greatest gossip from him (bad, I know). He told me something really disturbing and it was the first time I had heard of this ... he said there was a new website called JuicyCampus (dot) com. I don't even want to link to it because it is so terrible. Anyways, he said it was an anonymous website where you can link to your college and write things about people and then everyone reads and comments. Of course most people use this site to write ugly gossip about others. My brother said that a couple of his buddies were on the website and telling him the stuff they were reading and he said he couldn't even look at it because the stuff they were saying was so awful (he is really kind-hearted). I don't understand how this is not slander. He said that there was a post with hundreds of comments talking about the nominees for Homecoming Court and people were bashing all the girls that are on the court and saying very hurtful, untrue things. Homecoming Court at a big college is an honor .... I feel so sorry for those girls! People are really taking the fun out of college and I can only imagine how a website like this would impact one's self-esteem. My feelings get hurt at a drop of a hat ... if someone wrote something about me on a public website I would definitely withdraw from school. People, girls especially, can be so ruthless. What do ya'll think about this website? Are any of you familiar with it?
On another note, when we returned home last night I walked in to a disaster. Typical after being gone for weeks. My suitcase from Costa Rica was still laying in the middle of the floor, dishes were piled up in the sink, many-a-load of laundry needed to be done, etc. What did I do? I laid on the couch and watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall and then Desperate Housewives. I am getting it together this week though ... starting tonight! I will give you an update tomorrow on what I did - just so I am held accountable :)
Oh and get this. This morning at work I got a letter from a Leadership Organization in our community and it said this: "The members of (blank) were asked to nominate someone who they felt exemplified potential as a mover and shaker in our community and your name was selected." I am honored and so excited to participate because I like to be involved and volunteer, all that good stuff, but a "mover and a shaker" kinda made me laugh. I can hear the Beau now when I show him the letter tonight. He is going to say something along the lines of "A mover and a shaker, huh? Lets start by moving some of these clothes off of the floor. Then you can shake it in the kitchen while you fix some dinner."
Mark my words. He is silly!
