So my doctor has told me I need to quit smoking. He gave me a prescription for Chanix back in October. I picked it up, read about the side effects and thought to myself WTF. Every time I see my doctor he asks me if I started it. I told him am worried about the side effects. Some people have become depressed, easily agitated, suicidal, and the list goes on. He wanted me to try. I started taking it on 1/17/2012. Now for the first week you smoke as much as you want while taking it. The purpose right now is to let it build up in your system. When you start the second week you are supposed to stop smoking. This is where I am at right now. I still feel the need to smoke. Not as often, but I still do. Thursday and Friday I only had four cigarettes, which is cutting back for me. Today so far I have had none. I want one and I will have one. Just trying to make it on my terms. I think the fact that I do not want to quit is why it is not working the way it should. Some people who have written reviews on it said they smoked for the first month.

My main problem is I do not know what to do with myself. I have become more fidgety. I have done two needle points in the past two days. I am trying to keep myself busy, but all I want to do is go sit on the porch or eat. Right now I need to be working on a paper for school, but I am not. I am writing about how much I like to smoke. Advice? Not that anyone is reading my blog yet...

Are you Smarterer?

Yes I know that I am a teacher and that smarterer is not a word, but check this out.

This website lets you answer questions and compare yourself to others. Personally I have taken the BZZAgent, Facebook Disney Movies, Harry Potter, 80's trivia, Angry Birds, and Twilight tests. Can you guess which one I scored highest in?

I learned of this website via BZZAgent. What is BZZAgent you ask. BZZAgent is a company that helps other companies get their products and services noticed using a word of mouth method. It is pretty awesome. I have been involved in quite a few campagins. The last service I reviewed before Smarterer was About.Me, check that post out here. The last product I reviewed was Burt's Bees.

Graduate School

So I leave for my first graduate class tonight, well in about 30 minutes. I am nervous, I do not know what to expect. This class is not taught by someone in my department so it is even worse. The Monday class will be hard, but the professor is kick ass. Now tonight's class, I do not know this professor. I do not have a syllabus, I do not have the book. I am going to feel so stupid. I am already lost and wishing I could just 'buy' my Master's Degree.

When is it ok to be jealous?

I admit, I have a plan. I want my Master's degree before I start having kids. I just think that it will be better then trying to juggle doing that and raising kids. ...but...I see pregnant people, and I am jealous. I see people with babies, and I am jealous. I see my nephews, and I am jealous. I want one. One of my own. I almost feel selfish. ::Sigh:: I know that my dad has my back...most other people in my family would be ok if I got knocked up. My husband keeps telling me that I am running out of time. I am older than him so I see where it is coming from...still I know I am on the right track...

Facebook and Bullsh*t

Is there a nice way of denying someone on Facebook? Someone I know has one and I know soon I am going to be receiving a friend request, but I do not want to accept it. I cannot decline this request so I guess I have to figure out how to make their access to my information on a limited basis. There is too much drama on Facebook. Exes harassing their exes; current spouses, boyfriends and girlfriends harassing their other's exes. It is immature and stupid. I am friends with one of my exes and his girlfriend has a huge problem with it. I have told her numerous times, I DO NOT WANT HIM, but he has cheated on her before with lots of girls so I get it. The two times we did hang out years ago when they were broken up she knew about. 'Course he did not tell her, she emailed and asked me. I told her. I was not hiding anything. Last time he told me they were going to try and get back together again, I wished him luck. I told him to stop talking to other bitches. Have not talked to him since. I hate when people try and hide something from their SO on Facebook, I have nothing to hide from my husband. And if he thought I did, he knows my log in information.

It was so hard to get out of bed this morning. Being a teacher gives you wonderful vacation time, but just like the kids it is hard to get back into the everyday routine. I think the most sleep I got last night was between the hours of 5:00 and 6:00 am. Today work was filled with talks of what Santa brought from the kids and how tired everyone was. I did something smart though, I bought a coffee pot for work. Now I do not have to drag multiple travel mugs of coffee everyday! One other thing that got me through today was a song called For Better, For Worse by Old Man Markley. Check it out!

New Years Day

Today has been uneventful. The husband and I went to JC Penny's to return a necklace, it was pretty, just not for me. Then to a local place called Rocco's Italian Deli for lunch and then to my mom's house to build K'nex toys with my nephew. NEVER buy K'nex, they stink! Last night of winter break, back to teaching on Tuesday.

New Years Eve...con't we went and sat at a hotel on the strip forever because parking was going to be a nightmare.

We walked and walked to try and find somewhere to eat before a migraine hit. Did not work I got a migraine, ate some food, took some four dollar ibuprofen from a gift shop, and headed into the House of Blues. My head throbbed through Old Man Markly (different kind of band, but I liked it.) and Lagwagon. NOFX finally hit the stage at 11:45 p.m. and they were good. I was happy my headache was starting to subside by then. All in all a good New Years with my husband.
