Yet another reason why SLC kicks ass

Having placed San Francisco and New York City atop its 1999 list of the best places to live, Money magazine editors focused this year on economically vibrant cities that are also successfully managing their growth and providing the highest quality of life around, selecting Portland, Oregon as the best overall and Sarasota, Florida as the best small city. Their regional 2000 awards went to Providence, Rhode Island in the Northeast; Chicago, Illinois in the Midwest; the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area, North Carolina in the South; and Salt Lake City, Utah in the West. All these cities have solid schools, healthy growth and low crime; all control urban sprawl, avoid overcrowding and put a premium on green space, culture and having an accessible city center. In contrast to San Francisco and New York City, which have became too expensive and more congested, this year's best cities keep their average home prices between $126,000 and $170,000 and their average commute time between 18 and 28 minutes. Happy to lead the best city, Portland Mayor Vera Katz says We're growing gracefully. 11/30/2000

So busy!! @_@

I'm so glad that I'm busy.
There's nothing more that I hate than just sitting around and not doing anything all day, that is soo boring. I want to be busy, freakin' out with a cup of cofee in one hand and an energy drink in the other, while I run to catch the bus to my internship. That life and I love every minute of it. The worry the anxiety it's beautiful in a weird way.
I love my internship, I enjoy comming in everyday and I stay as long as I can. It's so fulfilling knowing all the hard work done at MLC is for a good cause, and that I'm a part of it. I love, love, love life right now.
I'm starting my job at Joy's Deli, in the Downtown Library on Friday. It's going to be awsome!!
The only thing that worries me is the scheduling- Getting down here (downtown) at exactly 3, and balancing MLC and work, but I have a good feeling about this.
I'm planning on working at the deli from now till june, and then quitting to work full time, with pay, at MLC.
Then of course I start slcc in the fall and the first year of the rest of my life.
I'm going to save my money to buy a car. Once my two years at slcc are up, I'm planning on transferring at the U and either living somewhere nearby or right on campus.

I just need to play my cards right and get good grades this year in order to graduate. I also need to plan my senior project and do some volunteer events. Damn I'm a busy girl.
So for now I'm looking forward to a protest in front of the city council building on thursday
My training at joys deli in the library on friday
finishing my senior project
choosing my slcc classes in April
graduating from AMES
Starting MLC in June
going to Costa Rica
Attending SLCC in the fall
buying a car
transferring to the U two years later
Graduating From the U
These are the blueprints, now I'm going to do everything I possibly can, including but not limited to: pulling all nighters, putting off relationships for a while, flippin' burgers, and working my butt off, till I reach my goals.

No money = no food

I have no money and I'm hungry, but I have no food.
This is called being broke. That is me.
Today I left school with my sister and road the bus down to the main library where I took many beautiful pictures, but since I lost the cable to connect my camera to the computer I cannot show you them. I do however have a card reader in my possesion and I plan on uploading these beautiful pictures of SLC sometime later.
see ya
