I think this is funny. As I was driving home, I told myself "YEAH! I'm gonna write my paper when I get home." but as soon as I got to my computer, without even thinking. I opened up the website, logged into livejournal and clicked on "update" so obviously, my subconscious mind wants to update. So here's to you subconscious.
I got to go to Reflexology school today. It was a seven hour class. At first, although it may sound corny. We hugged everybody else in the room and talked about the difference between liver hugs and heart hugs. And then Jody (the instructor) said a lot of inspiring things. About how wherever you go, what you carry with you (yourself) is all that you need. She said that good jobs, awesome spouses, good friends, etc. are all just bonuses, but really, when it comes down to it. All that you ever need to do anything is yourself. And how that if you wake up in the morning and tell yourself that you are going to do the best you can with everything that comes your way, you can never fail. And as corny as this may sound, it was inspiring to me and I needed to hear it. But after that we went discussed the history and went over diagrams and talked about all the things that go into reflesology. But after our lunch break, it was all hands on stuff. It was so incredibly awesome. Wow. I mean we learned relaxation techniques and she taught us how to find pressure points for certain parts of our bodies and so many more things. and like we took turns so we got to experience reflexology for ourselves. It was the coolest thing that has ever happened to me. I am considering investing 2 grand into becoming a certified reflexogist. I mean, it's something I really feel and I could turn it into my career. How good would I feel if I got to spend my life helping people feel better emotionally and physically.
Another cool thing was the show tonight. Although I have seen more than enough Elliston shows in the last two months, I had fun. This time they actually had and opening band. This band is from the cities and they are called "Lions Tigers, and Bears." Oh They were good. And then I was just sitting at the merch booth, ya know, and I asked pete from lions tigers and bears to sign the mailing list. Well when he signed up, I noticed that he is Pete Miller. An old church crush. It was crazy. I don't know about church crushes but yeah,I must admit, it has happened to me before. So that was exciting. And then a whole gang of people walked to Casa from Higher Ground. I mean, Chippewa Falls is Chippewa Falls. But as a huge group of incredible people were walking the 6 or 7 blocks, I felt like Chippewa Falls was an ok place. And when we got there, since I get bored of the typical music conversations, I got to shoot the shit with Loren she is so nice. It's really something how you can go to school with someone for four years and all of a sudden realize how cool they are, even though you never really put much thought into them before.
Another good thing happened. I decided that I am happy that Eric is staying here. I mean, before I was really scared and sad and I thought I would miss him. But just today it clicked in my head that I am going to live in Minneapolis. I love the music scene there. It's going to be impossible to not make awesome friends. I mean, I don't even know what I mean. But if Eric was there I would probably want to just isolate myself with him like I always do. But that's not even going to be an option. I'll be in this huge city and I'll travel it with my bus pass. There will be shows going on all the time, and new people to meet everywhere I look. I want college.
Yesterday Big Brothers Big Sisters called to check up. Well eventually, I ended up getting transferred to the nicest lady ever, I believe her name was Jan. And I talked about all of the problems and different situations and she was seriously the nicest lady ever. ha. umm she began telling me that I have the nicest conscious and I am just one of the most wonderful people who she's ever had the chance to talk with. I mean I missed jeopardy because I was so deeply in conversation with this lady. She was so excited that I am going to the University of Minnesota. It was really cool. Anyways I'm gonna start my paper, I think/hope.
