I felt pretty tired today after class was over because I went to school last night and then spent the night unknowingly at my boyfriend’s house and stayed up until 4:30 A.M. last night or should I say this morning. He had to go to work this morning so we woke up at 7;00 A.M. Then I had to go to school this morning at 11 A.M. So I had a little bit of time to take a nap but not much time for studying.
This usually happens on Monday nights because we both have class at the same time so we meet up after class and then hang out until the wee hours of the night. Before we know it half the night has gone by. But it is always worth it and I enjoy spending this time with him. I feel bad for him that he has to go work like this all day long when I only have a two hour class to go to and then some regular errands to run. So I get to come home and take a nap while he’s still at work working. But I guess he realizes that when he is up all night with me that he is going to be sacrificing a tiring day at work.
I am looking forward to my day off from school tomorrow where I will probably need to start job hunting as my mom told me the other day that money doesn’t grow on trees and she’s sick and tired of giving me so much money. I don’t know what she’s talking about other than the fact that I just went snowboarding once in a year and she only gave me $50 bucks, and then she gave me $30 to pay for my meds today at the pharmacy. It’s like what else am I supposed to do? Beg for the money on the street? I’ve had to do stuff like that before in my life and it wasn’t very fun. I will never go back to begging for money again I hope. Which is why I am trying to get my education and the get a job. But I am finding I could probably work while I go to school for a while.
Either way it’s stressing me out and I need to do something because I’m so tires of being broke all the time it’s not fun and I never have money to buy anything for myself. So I guess it’s time to look for work.
We arrived at about 9A.M. at Boreal (ski resort) at there weren’t too many people in the parking lot when we got there so we figured there wouldn’t be that many people on the slopes either and we were right. There was only a few people on the icy slopes. So we get out of the car and the wind is blowing so hard we are trying to change in the car and the doors keep wanting to slam shut on the car because the wind is blowing so hard. Plus it is fricking freezing cold. Not a good combination when you’re trying to go down the slopes.
Next we get in line to get out life tickets and my boyfriend, Bryan, needed to rent skis, boots and poles. The line was really long but the rental equipment wasn’t too busy so we moved through there pretty quickly. The cashier at the life ticket station told us that half of the mountain was closed. And I thought oh my god why did we even come here there’s only like three lifts open. And not to mention but that other side of the mountain is the best park of the whole resort. So to say the least I was a little bit disappointed.
So we get into the line for the bunny slopes just to practice. My boyfriend wanted to test out the skis he rented and I wanted to test out my skills and boy let me tell you I felt so out of practice. I felt like a duck out of water. I needed to get a longer run in so that I could get more practice in. But they didn’t have the big lift open yet unless you choose to go down the middle where all the jumps are and everything. So we went and took a break after the bunny slopes and a couple of times on the medium lift and had lunch.
Snowy Mountains, Tahoe, CA.
We walked back the slopes after lunch and they opened one more lift to the top of the mountain (those cheap bastards of a resort) and so we were about to get in this ridiculously huge line. But turned around and decide to call it a day. It was just to frustrating for me. Plus the snow had already turned into ice and it was so windy we had to buy face masks. I was just really grumpy about the whole thing when I found out they had only three lifts in operation. They were too cheap to open up all the lifts so we missed out on the best part of the mountain and had no good runs to go down. So we called it a day and decided to go home and beat the traffic. We learned for next time that we will have to shell out more than $15 for a lift ticket to get to some better lifts and mountains. I can’t wait for next season. Hopefully I will be living in Portland, Oregon where the mountains are only an hour away. I could get more practice in.
I woke up early this morning and went back to sleep as I had low motivation to go to class this morning so I didn’t get time to take a shower before school. Oh well, I’ve seen people go to school in their pajamas before. At least I made it to school this time because last period I just wasn’t feeling it and didn’t make it to class. So I went to class begrudgingly and turned in my homework. I have to turn in all due work to get a good grade in that class. I don’t want to miss out on any available points. I even have a tutor to help me on the side.
Well tomorrow morning I’m going snowboarding and that’s what’s important. I finally get to treat myself to a day off and a fun day of vacation. My boyfriend and I are looking forward to it. At least I know I am and I hope he is to. I hope he doesn’t feel as though I am dragging him along for the ride because he will have to rent skis and ski boots once we get up there. But that shouldn’t be too bad. As long as we get up there early, before all the crowds get there. It’s college kids Friday so we get a special deal of only $15 for a lift ticket as opposed to the regular $75 dollars per lift ticket.
I’ve had some random people contacting me on Messenger lately and I wonder what that’s all about. I think two people from my past, like friends of over 5 years ago and one new person that I met through WordPress have contacted me through FaceBook Messenger. One asked me to be his In Home Support Servicer but I don’t want to especially since the relationship we had was strange and we were using drugs at the time and he is still using now. I mean I know he had HIV and needs help but I am not prepared or well trained enough to know how to take care of someone in this type of situation. Plus I do not want to contract HIV in anyway shape or form. I mean through cleaning his house or anything like that. And another girl contacted me randomly when we used to go out to coffee together and had gone to the bar once and I told her some embarrassing stuff so I don’t want to talk to her either.
But I am happy to know that they are ok and that they want to talk to me I just don’t really want to have anything to do with them so I will not be contacting them back. Do you think that is mean of me? I think it is best as to whatever makes me feel the most comfortable. I mean my friend with the HIV looks like crap and was kind of rude to me when we video chat the other night and the girl I barely even know what she wants. So I figure it best just to leave it up in the air.
I’ve been looking for my snowboarding boots all weekend long and I finally just found them! My boyfriend and I were supposed to go snowboarding last Friday but we didn’t have chains for his truck and it was going to be snowing all day long so we decided it wouldn’t be safe to go without them. Unfortunately our snowboarding trip keeps get putting off because of one thing or another and finally this last friday we woke up at 4 A.M. we were all packed ready to go and checked the weather it was raining we we were at and it said snowy and windy in the mountains so without chains on the truck it was a no go, once again.
So this coming Friday is going to be it. The infamous snowboarding day, the one day that we get to go up a season. I can’t wait. I looked for those darn boots everywhere last Thursday, in the addict, in every household closet, in the laundry room and in the shed outside. I crawled through rat poop and spider webs but to no avail did I find the boots, which really pissed me off because I knew I was probably gonna have to rent a whole set of a snowboard and boots because they have the new click in apparatuses which I have the old strap in kind. Not only would I have to teach myself how to use a new mechanism I would also have to pay extra money which I don’t really have. So now I can save a little bit of money and possibly buy myself a new e-cigarette because mine blew up in my face a few days ago.
I’m super excited to go to the snow it’s my favorite thing to do. And not to be cocky but yes I am good at it. I can jump off ramps and catch air I can slide down polls and do a 360 degree turn but that’s about it. I can’t bust any badass tricks or anything but I can do some basic snowboarding things like go down the halfpipes and stuff like that. But my favorite thing is just floating on the fresh powder and carving through it. I heard there’s a lot of snow up there right now so hopefully the conditions will be nice when we go even though it’s becoming close to the end of the season there’s just so much snow this year that it’s going to be a long season. And I’m so thankful that I will have time to get up there before it’s over.
