A new post!!! [May. 14th, 2008|06:42 pm]
[mood |accomplishedaccomplished]

So what is up with Cristen theses days? A lot! It's been pretty busy around here lately. ZT and I were in a wedding a few weeks ago. 2 friends of ours were getting married. Zane was the best man and I was a brides maid. The wedding was pretty interesting but we had a good time. My new job is awesome. I don't even feel like im at work most of the time. For those of you living under a rock...I no longer work at Fox 35 News anymore. I have traded in my sucky news schedule for a m-f 7:30-5 schedule and I have every other Friday off. Pretty sweet deal. I am a the Public Relations Assistant for the North Central Region of Progress Energy.

I need to get my wisdom teeth out so that my teeth can get straightened. I went to 3 oral surgeons up here in the Orlando area...all of which want to charge me over $2000 to have it done. I called a dentist in Clearwater who is only going to charge me $1000.00 It crazy that dentists can get away with charging that much.

I am going to go back to school to get my Masters. I had been toying with which school to go to and if I really wanted to deal with taking the GRE to get in. I didn't really want to take the test and driving to UCF up here at 5pm would be horrible. I decided to go to Keller Graduate school at DeVry. It has the same accreditdation as a regular college or university. I am going to get my Masters of Public Administration which will help me have a better chance of eventually getting a raise.

Before I could register for classes I had to take this math test because Keller wouldn't accept on of my algebra classes from St. Pete College. I havent seen algebra in YEARS! Anyway, the test was only 12 questions but each question had a certain amount of points it was worth. It wasnt graded out of 100 it was based on which ones you got right and the points it gave you. Well in order to not have to take this pre-req math class, you had to get a total of 82 points. I go in and take it...I get a 75. I was pissed. That could have ment I only missed it by one question. I got another chance to take it today. I go in...its a totally different test and it is 50 times harder than the first time. One question I actually sat there staring at the screen going "what in the world...is this a different language?" So I finish the lady prints my score and goes "You got 93 points! You waived the class." I was shocked! I even asked her if the print out had my name on it and not someone elses. I start classes in July. I am taking my sweet time...one class at a time for now. I'm not in a rush.

Other than that...nothing else really going on. Just trying to relax and have fun, until my live is taken over by homework.

Here is a cute joke to lighten up your day!

A koala was sitting in a gum tree..... smoking a joint,

when a little lizard walked past, looked up and said, "Hey Koala! What are you doing?"

The koala said, "Smoking a joint, come up and have some."
So the little lizard climbed up and sat next to the koala where they enjoyed a few joints.

After a while the little lizard said that his mouth was "dry" and that he was going to get a drink from the river.

The little lizard was so stoned that he leaned too far over and fell into the river.

A crocodile saw this and swam over to the little lizard and helped him to the side. Then he asked the little lizard, "What's the matter with you?"
The little lizard explained to the crocodile that he was sitting smoking a joint with the koala in the tree, got too stoned and then fell into the river while taking a drink.

The crocodile said that he had to check this out and walked into the rain forest, found the tree where the koala was sitting finishing a joint. The crocodile looked up and said, "Hey you!"

So the koala looked down at him and said,

"Shiiiiiiiiiiit dude.. How much water did you drink?

Im jealous [Mar. 19th, 2008|08:33 pm]
I was browsing the internet... and came across a PCCA website. I'm kinda jealous at their new buildings and theatre. They are very spoiled little actors now.... take a look:


I guess having to wade through water to get to the black box or running from the falling ceilings or roaches makes us the awesome people we are today!

I got this letter from Pinellas County Schools about updating info for this book thing they are printing. And It got me thinking... Can you believe that we graduated almost 7 years ago... in 3 years we will all be getting ready for our 10 year class reunion! That is crazy!

So I've decided im not really that excited about valentines day this year. Its not because I dont have anyone...because I do... I just am kinda over the holiday. Plus I have to work until 8 that night and zt works til 9. I dont know....

Other than that I am really beginning to get in a slump about my job hunting situation. I kinda feel like a loser that cant find a job..and the more time I spend at fox..the more depressed I get. Im sure those of you reading this will just be like "oh god...she hates her job...doesnt everyone?" well I guess you have to really be at fox to understand. When you walk into the newsroom... a wave of negativity hits you face! No one likes it there..and you feel like your every move is being watched. The littlest thing gets you in trouble. Its stupid.

Anyways...no more job talk...

This Sunday Zt and I will be playing it up redneck style...going to the Daytona 500. A friend of his got two tickets and didnt want to go..so he gave them to us. We will be out there allllll day since I heard you need to get there at like 7am (even though the race isnt until 3:30) because traffic around the speedway is nuts. It should be a very interesting time.

Our plans to go to the AMA superbike races at Road Atlanta again this year have been nixed. We are trying to buy a house in Sept. when our lease is up and the race is right at the end of August. so we cant go because we will be moving. oh well...there is always next year.

Nothing else too exciting going on... just trying to relax for the rest of the night before i have to be up again for work in the AM.

Ups and Downs [Feb. 2nd, 2008|08:51 am]
[mood |sleepysleepy]

Let see...So because I work in the news business I had to work 6 days during the week of Christmas...so I never got to go down to St. Pete to see my mom. I finally had two days off in a row last weekend so I went down to see her and bring christmas presents. (a month late is ok) I drove down on Saturday in the morning and we hung out and she cooked dinner...we opened gifts just like it was Christmas. Anyway... before Christmas she asked me what I wanted. Well I told her that since I had my new camcorder that I wanted a tripod, a case for it and a really good movie editing program to use. When I was in college I loved editing our class projects and making videos and documentaries. Now I will be able to make my own. Well then my laptop crapped out and it still wont turn on. At least I have ZT's computer to get my on the internet. I dont have the $$$ to eat...let alone get my laptop fixed. So I finish opening gifts and realize that the three things I did ask for arent there. So then she says "I know you wanted to movie program but your laptop is broken so I figured you wouldnt be able to use it...so I bought you one last thing that I thought you would like." She goes into the other room...and brings out this big box. I unwrap it... Brand New Sony Vaio laptop. I almost fell off the couch! (I know...I admit im a spoiled brat) I absolutely love it. There is a movie program already on it...so i am going to work with it for a little while. (i know im a nerd)

Now on to this weeks fun times...
I had to work 13 hours on Tuesday because of the damn Florida Primary. I really cant wait to get a new job...the stress level in that building really isnt healthy. I mean ive worked at some places where people are unhappy but nothing like this. Everyone there hates the place and you can feel the tension when you walk in the door.
I've had a few job interests....but no offers. I just really dont know what I am doing wrong. Ive never had such a hard time to get a job. Maybe it is just Orlando. Hopefully things will turn around soon.

I am really enjoying having my weekends off again. Today I can just do anything and be lazy. Tomorrow we are taking the puppy to the dog park then coming back to watch the Super Bowl. Im not sure where we are going to watch it yet...but it should be fun.

Well thats about it for now. Ill write more if something exciting happens.

PS: If i have to write one more story at work about Britney Spears...Im going to throw up on the computer.

.....EXPLAINATION.... [Jan. 17th, 2008|06:03 pm]
[mood |pissed offpissed off]

So I'm sure many of you are probably wondering why I hate my job so much. What could possibly be just SO bad. Well today was the perfect example.

For those of you who don't know... I work as an associate producer for Fox in Orlando. I basically write the news for our 5, 6, and 10p newscasts.

So anyway... today I wrote a story about this guy who died. Well in one sentence I wrote that the guy passed away in his home in california.

I actually got YELLED AT... because I wrote that he passed away and did write that he died!
The reason?
Because the big boss doesn't like the term "pass away."
