Third Year of Dopes
So, last night I headed over to the pizza meeting to meet up with my friend Shelly to pay for Dopes on Slopes. Every year we all go to Brianhead, UT for a weekend of skiing/snowboarding/tubing etc. and it's a blast.
The first year I went was almost three years ago. They donated the trip to me because I was a newcomer to the program and they had an extra female bed. I was nervous because I didn't really even know that many people, but I borrowed a snow suit, caught a ride with someone and just let loose. It was the best time I ever had. I went last year too and again, it was a blast.
So, even though I'm on unemployment and I'm not working and maybe I shouldn't be spending that extra $100 to go skiing - FUCK IT! I'm doing it anyway. I got the last female bed again this year. Nothing like waiting to the last minute like I always do! I'm such a procrastinator. I'm just glad I got in. Next step - find someone to take the beautiful ride through Utah with me. I can do it alone, but it's more fun to have a girlfriend or whatever.
I'm trying to talk Angie into going, but she has the whole two kids thing and has to beg her mom to watch them for a whole weekend. Not to mention, she doesn't ski. But, whatever, I'll find someone.
The job search isn't going so hot and that's basically because I haven't been looking. ha ha Funny how that works. I know firsthand that jobs don't usually fall in your lap, and yet, that's what I'm sitting around hoping for. ha ha
I'm gonna get off my ass and start looking - soon - I swear. My saneness depends on it. My mind is running a million miles an hour since I'm not working - I'm kind of bored - kind of depressed and very unmotivated. It's a vicious cycle. I feel like shit about myself because I don't have a job and yet I'm not looking for a job because I'm super depressed. Vicious cycle that I've been through before and I know how to fix it - get out there and look for work - duh! Also, getting my ass back into the gym will be a big help too.
Anyway, blah blah. I feel like I'm boring you guys to death. I'll try to find something more interesting to write about tomorrow.
And, about the cheerleading photo yesterday. I was in the second row on the far left next to the male cheerleader (Melvin). It was my freshman year in high school and I made Varsity because I could do a backhandspring - thanks to all of my gymnastics training through the years.
Anyway, the new dancing with the stars lineup is up for those of you who haven't already heard...
Denise Richards - Former Bond Girl and hated by most of America
Steve O - jackass star
Jewel - singer
Little Kim - rapper
Shawn Johnson - Olympic Gymnast
Steve Wozniak - Creator of Microsoft and dates or used to date Kathy Griffin
Lawrence Taylor - NFL star
Belinda Carlisle - 80's pop sensation
Nancy O'Dell - T.V. Host
Chuck Wicks - Country Singer
Ty Murray - Cowboy and married to Jewel
David Alan Grier - supper funny comedian
Gilles Marini - Actor
Interesting facts - Ty Murray and Jewel are the first married couple competing against each other and the beautiful and talented Julianne Hough will be dancing with her current boyfriend, Chuck Wicks so the chemistry with the couple should be through the roof.
Predictions - Denise Richards will be the first person to be kicked off because America hates her and plus, pretty girls never seem to do well on the show.
I hope David Alan Grier does well because I think he's a really talented comedian. He really cracks me up.
Shawn Johnson will do pretty well because she obviously has a lot of rhythm and she's done many a floor routine that required a lot of grace and athleticism.
As always, I'm sure it will be an interesting season.
