just an observance

last night i watched the laramie project on hbo it was about matthew sheppards death, and the two young men that were so homophobic, that the one boy beat matthey sheppard within inches of his death. and the other one then tied him to a fence out in laramie wyoming, in the cold weather leaving him to die. 
when i was young, i have never in any circumstances thought about killing someone, only when i have feared for my life, have i thought about things like this. but never in my dreams have i wanted to beat someone to death with my bare hands or a pistol butt. where in gods name does this stupidity come from. the one kid said he was afraid of gays, and that matthew had made a pass at him. i seriously doubt any of his story, all that kid did was try to cover his idiocy, stupidity, and alcohol induced agression. if it had been any other kid they ran across that night, it could have been them, gay, straight, but when they saw matthew in the bar, him and his buddy talked about jacking him up, i'm sure they robbed him. (even though i doubt matthew sheppard had a large sum of money on him). 
I hate to say it, but the old saying sticks and stones can break  your bones, (along with kill you if you get stoned to death like in the middle east), but words can't harm you. (that needs to be changed, words can harm you). people are intimidated everyday by verbal abuse, and verbal abuse usually leads to physical abuse, and it continues to escalate. 
i have been in relationships where i was verbally abused, and physically abused, and psychologically abused. but verbal abuse can be one of the worst, because it causes us to sometimes question ourselves. did i? why didn't i? are they right? why? why? why?
it helps to cause you to isolate, and not want help. why reach out you are what they have been telling you all along, aren't you? loser? gay, straight, a pussy, you can't do that of this? and it is endless. (look at all of the hatemongers, aryan nation, kkk, gangs in citys, they close their minds to the real truth, no too many of us are of any kind of pure blood, i know i'm not. i'm chickasaw, cherokee, german, and god only knows that last part since my grandfather on my mom's side of the family abandon them. 
i may comment on this again, because it has hit a cord. 
just know that if you are out there, and you live in america, you are most likely of mixed blood. no if's ands or buts about it. check out your geneology, it will amaze the living hell out of you. 

you might check out the laramie project, or look up matthew sheppards website. that kid was smart, and would have done something positive in his life. he all ready had at his young age. but never got achieve his potential  because of two homophobes.

my one consolation is that those two boys are now in a place where they cannot escape the possible other inmates, that will be forcing sex on them. that is there hell, for not stopping their actions, and taking a bright young man from this earth. they made their choice, now they are living in their own daily hell. 
may god bless you matthew sheppard. you did not deserve to die at the hands of two uneducated morons, with a vengence to hurt someone that night, and may god bless the two idiots that ended matthew sheppards life.

what is my dream for this 10 weeks

to pass my classes at kaplan, this time i'm just wanting to pass, and not worry about the honor roll anymore. they can take our money, but not even give us a board to file complaints with. I am still pissed about the change in the late policy, and think i will be forever pissed about it. why don't i change schools, because i just don't want to go through all the bs i would have to to change schools. and some of my study partners from past classes, i still keep in touch with, who also have had problems with their new late policy. come on kaplan create a board for those students that have grievences!!!

male weedy sea dragon with mature eggs

weedy seadragonwhat my next tattoo is going to be, a weedy seadragon. and then
maybe a leefy seadragon. and then thinking about a deadliest catch
tattoo (but not sure what it will be yet, thank god i have lots of time
to think about it). :)
if you have not checked out the deadliest catch on the discovery
channel, go and check it out, then maybe they can add a new addict
to their show!

school break

this is a ramble, and bitch and complain posting.
i don't think about it much until i am on a break, but i wish it was longer than a week! right now i am wishing it would be 2 weeks, if i could sleep, and not wake up for the whole week,  i would do it. i am glad it is summer, but i really hate it when the temperature gets into the triple digits. (but i still hate cold weather the most). river had a bladder and kidney infection, but he is much better now, and i'm thrilled. i had thought he had got caught in the hailstorm that had hit, because he was acting like he had been injured, but it was just the pain. i am also attempting to quit smoking, which sometimes i think i'm crazy for even trying. and i'm still pissed at kaplan and their new late policy, (and this is funny because i usually don't hold a grudge, but this one is worth holding on to).
i also have become a huge fan of the deadliest catch. 
i could watch them all day everyday. i'd actually be thrilled if they made the show a couple of hours long, instead of just an hour. and have tried to add all of them that have pages on facebook as friends. they are all very entertaining, and fun to watch. it also gives me someone to worry about other than regular every day stuff. so i hope anybody that is going to kaplan if you read this, tell your advisor what you think about their new late policy, i know i am not the only one that is pissed off about this change. tell them!!! until it affects their pocketbook they won't do something about it. All they have to do is reinstate the old late policy, the one that worked!!!

the last night of this 10 weeks

tonight is the last night of this 10 weeks. This is my 50th week, i get a one week break before the next 10 weeks starts. i just got my books for the next 10 weeks and they weigh a ton. i have one class that is on monday night and i think that sucks. And i'm still pissed off about the new late policy, i wish they would reinstate the old late policy. and i won't be referring anybody to kaplan until they listen to some of the student body, and change it back. i guess i will just refer people to the university of phoenix, or tell them to find a online university that has a late policy. since kaplan doesn't want to pull their heads out. anyway, everyone have a great one week holiday, see you in a couple of weeks. :)

onto week 7

i have decided to have a small rant. i am still pissed about the new no late policy at kaplan. i know i won't recommend kaplan until they either consider changing this policy back to the way it was last 40 weeks. what do you think we are morons. that when we get out in the real world, that we tell our employer, oh sorry, i have to turn my project in late, cause i just couldn't get it done. well i'm not a moron, and i know the difference between working out in the real world and school. but *hit happens and sometimes i might have to turn something in late. i still want credit for it. but if you force me to, i will go to the er, just to make you happy, and that i can still get a grade, even if it might be late, and i will have points deducted. you would just make it easier on those, that might be sick, and don't have the funds to always go to the doctor. (for example i have a classmate, and now because of your new rule about this flipping late policy, she is flunking out. I hope you will be happy taking her money for another 10 weeks, when she could have got it done this 10 weeks, it just might have been late. And she is one that can't afford to go to the doctor. If it weren't for friends, she would not even be back online to attend school, if it hadn't been for a few friends to finally help her get a replacement computer, because hers broke last 10 weeks). (ok, i'll get off of my soapbox, for now).

week 3 is almost over

i have quite a bit of homework to get done before midnight tonight. but i am going to bust my butt to get it done. i have not had much sleep. been down in my back, and so broke i can't see straight. i sure wish the school would send us our money before July. But i know there isn't anything i can do to get them to send it earlier. i have applied for more money for school through the chickasaw tribe, and everything i can apply for through them. i also applied for a laptop through the chickasaw nation. i so hope i get the money and the laptop, it would really help. i hope everyone is doing good in their studies. i hate their new rule of not being able to turn anything in late. i liked the rules that we had the last 40 weeks i had attended, where we could turn stuff in late, as long as it wasn't over 2 weeks late. i usually tried never to do it, but there were times, i just had to. oh well, study hard everyone. see you in seminars on thursday. and by the way hi dennis, and hi to my comp 2 professor...hope your doing ok. i miss ya.
the picture is of an iggy i hope to get one of his sons within the next few years. or a european one, a black iggy!

week 10

Hi everyone, I wanted to let you know that i am doing blue for how i feel not having this class anymore. It actually scared the tar out of me going into it. I finally was doing better in a & p 2, and then tanked my final. So I guess this 10 weeks my gpa is going to take an enormous hit. darn, so much for being on the honor roll this 10 weeks. I will try and visit everyone's blog once a week or every 2 weeks. I am going to miss you all, it was a fun class, and it would not have been complete without each and every one of you! I am going to miss Dennis a lot. So everyone take care, and study hard!! If anyone is going into the disease's of the human body, or keyboarding, maybe i will see you there! Sincerely S aka fangy

this is one of my first tattoos, the other one i got is of the flying fire breathing dragon. they are both around 35 years old. this one is on my right hip!                                      
our professor wanted us to tell what is our favorite food.........spagetti and meatsause. our favorite healthy food,....humm, i would guess it's still spagetti. favorite non-healthy food.....mcdonald's double cheeseburger, or a sonic chili cheese footlong and tator tots. and the strangest combination, i would guess it would be saltine crackers in milk. i am such a picky eater, i don't guess i have too many strange combinations....i also love chicken and dumplings, it is about time to make some before it gets warm. and i am hoping that spring is right around the corner, because i am tired of winter. :-)

got my comp 2 paper in by the skin of my teeth

i don't think i got of much of it done as i would have liked, but i am going to work on it all day today, and try to get more of it done, i think i have around 4 or 5 pages all ready, and i'm only through the first 2 parts of my outline, i have to add the helping hands about the capuchin monkeys, and the dolphins, and then the physical disabilities, and mental disabilities parts to it to. and a conclusion, and then the abstract. when i get all that added, it will be pretty much done. i hope i don't get a bunch of points off, i could have waited to turn in in late, but i just could not afford for that extra 20 % to be taken off if i had turned it in late. so it was turn in what i had at 11:30 ish pm. or turn it in late. oh well, i think if i spend the next few days on completing it, i can turn the whole thing in before the end of this week. i am having formatting issues with my word, but oh well, i am trying to the best of my ability. and that is all i can do. i have got to go to the doctor, and get my blood pressure checked, and get some pain pills for my back, i just can't take the pain right now, i had been doing really well, but this last cold front has me down in my back again. i can't believe it's week 7 all ready. just a couple more weeks, and we are going to be pretty much done with our classes again, all i will have to do on week 10 is that big final for a&p 2 (i dread it). then it's diseases of the human body, and keyboarding 1. I hope everyone in my comp 2 class is almost done with their paper, and the people in a&p are almost done with their paper on the system you picked for your topic. i'm doing the blood supply, now i will just pray my puter will behave tonight, and can get to both seminars on time. so i'll see you in seminar, or on the d/b or here. i thought i'd show you my iggy tattoo on my wrist today. come on federal taxes, or school money, i need you so i can get a laptop, get the rest of the puter parts for tammy's puter, and to pay a few bills. i'm praying you get here today, or before this weekend.

my dad before dialysis

this was before my dad was put on dialysis, and 2 of my favorite pictures of him.

just a couple of pictures

of my dad, and one of my mom and dad, when my dad was on dialysis, and my mom took care of him at our house. this was my most favorite house of all the ones i ever lived in. we had 2 and a half acres fenced in just so my rottweilers had plenty of room to run, it had an in-ground pool and was just nice as can be.

darn school website

ok, i have gotten the gumpshion to get off my duff, and work on homework. and the freaking school website is flipping out. i am the 52nd person on hold. i hope my composition professor does not dock me too many points for posting a day late on the discussion board this week. i have been trying for over an hour to get onto the kaplan university website. and i think i've just been kicked off on my phone call to the school. now to get back in line with the rest of the students calling about the website. what a bummer over an hour on hold, and then getting disconnected. argh!!!!! i have an outline due in A&P 2 before tuesday night and a outline for composition 2 on the discussion board if and when i can get online at kaplan. and then 3-5 pages on my paper about service animals before tuesday night also. i am going to have a really busy next 3 days. i have most of my A&P 2 outline done. now i just need to type it into word. and i have my outline for the discussion board in composition 2 if and when i can get online at kaplan. and if and when i quit getting disconnected with kaplan's phone line for technical assistance. we are getting a cold front. we had a couple of decent days, into the 50's. but we are getting more cold weather. (oh god, help me survive the rest of the winter, i guess it is good it will make me do my homework). and did anybody see the opening ceremonies for the olympics last night? i thought it was absolutely kewl as chit. :) it was very sad about the luge guy from the old ussr, losing his life on a practice run. i pray for his family at such a devastating loss. and then having it all caught on tape. i hope they fix the runs, so if anyone else gets thrown from the track they don't lose their life. now that i have run off at the mouth, i need to go see what everyone else is up to on their blog. see you all on the discussion board if and when i can get online. below is a quick look at my outline that i will be posting.

i forgot to do my blog! end of week 5 moving into week 6

Hi everyone, well i just figured out i forgot to do my blog this week. my bad, but i am going to throw some stuff in. and also add stuff about my paper for A&P 2, and maybe a couple of you will come say something, and give me some feedback so i can turn in my outline for my A&P 2 project. That paper is going to be on blood. I have it written as, here is what i wrote and turned in for unit 3, on the blood.
The Blood System
     The blood supply system in the human body is a major system. Without blood the body would not be able to receive and exchange oxygen to the tissues, and major organs. It would have no way of removing the waste and toxins that build up in the body. It would not be able to fight off infection or build up immunity against diseases the human body might come into contact with. Some of the issues the blood supply deals with are bleeding disorders, anemia and other hemoglobin disorders, cancer of the blood and associated bone marrow.

tada. lol, so this week i am going to try and keep up, from the day we have seminar, i finally got enough studying done, to do well in my A&P 2 tests this week. Now to just keep up with it for the rest of this 10 weeks. Oh yea, and i had my taxes done, and got them sent in. Now for the feds to just send me money, so I can buy my kaplan university study partner from comp 1, a monitor, keyboard, and operating system. To get her back online, I will be so happy. I so miss having her to study with every night. (I allready got her a tower for a real reasonable price, i just have to get her a few more things and she will be back online and i will have my study partner back, I did not know I would miss her this much). Then I hope i have enough left over through school to get me a laptop, and send the rest off to my friend that helps me with my bills when i run out of my unemployment, and i'm still waiting on my disablility determination. So for anyone in comp class that has come by, i hope you have started your outline for unit 6, i have just started mine (i think that is what we do in unit 6, is an outline, (we have an outline due in A&P 2, i need to check my comp 2 and see if that is what is due)). anyway i'm going to show you my latest beginning of a tattoo, and then I will add more every few days. the one tattoo, i want to get one that looks like my girlfriend that use to live in michigan, and now lives in pennsylvania, it has the head of one of her chinese cresteds as a model for the dragon head, and the new one on my back just needs shading and some color, it is between my iggy tattoo and my flying dragon on my back.

i can't believe it's week 4

waiting till the last minute is usually not me, or what i try to do in my classes. But i've been hiding under the covers since the ice storm, and then snow that came to visit us in oklahoma. all i can say is i am so ready for spring. But thank heaven's i'm caught up on homework, and will have to get back at it tomorrow, when i crawl out of bed. I just hope it is after noon! lol :) the pictures are of my fur kids, the one picture is of luna and angel, my two oldest iggys, then river my boy iggy, and then dot my itty bitty iggy! they are my constant bedwarmers. :) next post i'll try to remember to show you some of my tattoos!

Sunday, January 24, 2010

getting motivated, it's week 3 and i'm having a problem getting motivated. I have been feeling like hammered dog crap, and realize i still have 7 more weeks to go. I just want to run screaming out into the night. if it weren't for my iggys i just don't think i could go on. last 10 weeks one of my study mates from comp 1 was having issues, now i see exactly where she was coming from.

adding another photo

a big congratulations professor on your news of the upcoming new baby, i'll cross my fingers that you get a girl. (but you know it's the father that determines the sex of the child). But i will pray and cross fingers and toes and dog legs, that you have a girl this time around. Then you would be able to dress her up and stuff! :)

the picture i posted is me with angel my first italian greyhound. She is about 9 or 10 years old. She was trying on a friends iggy's jammies. I finally had to buy her a pair of her own.

No really I am just doing this to see if I can post a picture. if this works, it will be a picture of fang, the last show rottweiler i had. i miss him a lot. (I wonder, how come when i get up to work on homework, i am hungry, and want to eat. Maybe i should do a paper on that, am i like pavlovs dogs)? lol :)

Your favorite movies

I absolutely love movies, some of my favorites are Shrek, stigmata, enemy at the gates, pay it forward, the sixth sense, cadence, the usual suspects, unforgiven, memoirs of a geisha, the birdcage, miss congeniality, saving private ryan, good boy (it has an italian greyhound in it), almost all the movies with dogs in them. But I don't like movies like cujo, or any movie that portrays dogs in a bad light. I have lots more.
I like movies with tom hanks, jude law, bruce willis, sandra bullock, kevin spacey, and many more. So tell me what are some of your favorite movies and why? Some of your favorite actors and actresses. I hope I get some responses to this one, since I love to know what others like, and why!!!

The starting of week 2

Wow, it has all ready been a week. Now we are into week 2 of classes. I took my A&P 2 test and I was very pleased and got 100%. Woo hoo, I so wish I could keep that up for the entire class. But I know I will end up tripping up somewhere during these classes. We are doing the heart now, and it is so confusing. But I will have to work my fanny off to try to stay on the honor roll this 10 weeks. But it is still cold, and I don't have anything else to do but study and sleep. So I don't freeze my booty off outside. I am so ready for spring. When I get a little better acquainted with my blog, I will add a few sites I find interesting, and websites for things near and dear to my heart. I know one that I hope there is one, for helping to get vests or money donated towards bullet proof vests for any of the dogs that are working overseas with our military. Since I am a big dog lover, I want to help any dogs that our helping our young men and women that are serving our country. Not only in the jobs they do, but in being companions and hopefully they help keep our service men and women in good spirits when they are down. I think it is time for me to shut up, and get back to doing homework. See everyone in the funny papers! :) or on the d/b in class.

Sunday and needing to take my A &P 2 test

It is sunday, and I need to take my A & P 2 test. Because I don't want to wait till tuesday night, and have any possibility of getting booted off during my test. Which has happened to me. But during A & P 1, I tried to wait as long as I could to try and stuff more information into my head. I am so thrilled that we only have one test in Composition 2. But having to write the huge paper is going to be the tough part, which I want to get started on this week. No more waiting until the last minute for me. My head almost explodes when it gets to week 9. Hope everyone is having a good week for unit 1. I do love having a place to blah, blah, blah. lol :)
See you all in the funny papers!

Thursday, January 7, 2010

I have been to everyone's blog so far in my class that has started one. I will post links to them all soon. But I am going to go to bed, and get out of the cold. It is so cold outside, it even feels cold in the house. I am so ready for winter to be over, I guess it will give me a reason to stay inside and do nothing but homework when I am awake. I so want a laptop, so I could stay in bed and do my homework. But that will have to continue to be a dream of mine for awhile longer. See you here again soon. Or on our discussion boards. If your not a student at Kaplan, and have any thoughts of returning to school. Check them out, I am glad I did. I will finally eventually end up with that bachelors degree, and maybe more that I have so wanted to accomplish before I pass from this earthly plane. I just hope the mayan calendar is wrong, and I have quite a few years past 2012.

what will this become

I am going to make this blog for an assignment for one of my classes at Kaplan University Online. I don't know where it will go, or what will spill out onto my blog. I will try to find some other peoples blogs that I find interesting, so if mine are too boring, you can another to read.
