A’ight. First two test grades from microbiology are 92 and 94 (...that’s about the best I can do with this fool ass white dude teacher).

First test grade from anatomy & physiology II is a trademark 97.

Friday morning in the TEAS test and we creamin’ the study book from the library.

Next stop, nursing school this fall semester.

Keep it up, Amarie. Keep it up.

You got this.

May your team, be it Patriots or Falcons, win tonight! :D :D

(Uhh...I'm black and from the South, tho. So I gotta go with my Falcons. No hard feelings, y'know?)

Also, some tips from a former-medical-assistant-and-would-be-nursing-student:


-If you're gonna hit the spicy hot wings, fries, etc., please be sure to drink lotsa water, too! It isactually possible to irritate your gastrointestinal (GI) tract with too many spicy foods. (Yes, this goes for us people of color-not just white people.)

-When the commercials come on and you have to use the bathroom, use the bathroom. Your bladder loves you very much and yes, it's designed to stretch to accommodate different volumes of urine (it's why we call the bladder tissue "transitional epithelium"), but it's still good to go ahead and go when you need to!

-If you'll be sitting for most of the game, try to stand up and stretch your limbs a bit. No need for cramps! And contrarily, if you're standing, be sure to sit down and get off your feet for a while.

-Are you wearing your team's hat? Make sure that it's not too tight on your head so you don't run the risk of headaches!

-And last but not least, have a blast and may the best team win!! :D



--Love,


Amarie

I Have a Request

See, ever since we got our wittle Dante about four and a half years ago? Mommy's always been his valentine, y'know? I ask her, but apparently Dante's always already gotten to ask her first and she's always accepted.

And I'm left out in the dust. It is so unfair. I mean, Dante ain't even got thumbs to make and write her a card!

So my request is this: will someone please be my valentine? You ain't gotta fill out an application, buy me a card, flowers, or a box of chocolates. Ain't gotta do none of that.

Just lemme know if you can be my valentine, pretty please with a bright red cherry on top.

I can't wait-I'm so excited! And I hope I'm always excited for school for as long as I go!

It's Anatomy & Physiology II and Microbiology! Nursing school, here we come!! :D :D

Edit: Also, I am so sorry that I haven't gotten to everything that I was going to write. I had a whole lot more than I expected going on and I underestimated just how tired I was. But! At least I got a lil fanfiction out with...two more to come, yes? Yay!

Love you all!!

Happy New Year!

I found my old Tobey Maguire!Spiderman VHS tapes! We have the 1st and 2nd ones on the VHS and the 3rd one, which I do not care for, is on DVD.

I've been looking for my beloved first two for years and I'm having a [slightly time-wasting, haha] blast re-watching them! It's been years and years and years; this is the Spider Man of my childhood. It's incredible what I see, what I think, what I feel now that I am an adult at 25-years-old.

So I'm just wondering, umm...

Would ya'll like it if I started a little series where I simply speak my thoughts and feelings on my re-watching? Tag it "Amarie Re-watches Spidey 1" and "Amarie Re-watches Spidey 2"?

I got so many nostalgic thoughts and feelz. Lemme know what ya'll think!!

And a happy holiday to one and to all!! -hugs-

But...

Has anyone ever told Optimus Prime that he has a big butt? And not just a big butt in that he's a giant Transformer from Cybertron-no, he has a big butt for a Transformer?

Like, it's just...it's huge.

Optimus Prime has a big butt.

Couple Updates

1.) Uhhh...we truly don't have to move after all...at least not for another year. Holy freakin' shit, ya'll must think my life is a soap opera by now. I know I most certainly do. Long story short, we couldn't find another place that fit us, Mommy was this close to crying, she went down to the office and told them what's what...and they said they'd work with her. Our rent will, indeed, not go up to $1,000+, but will stay at a nice, pretty $802 for the time being.

...And we can afford that. So we are, thankfully, staying right. Where. We. Are. My goodness.

Mommy and I think that they're more than willing to work with us because, 1.) so many other people have moved out, and so their business is getting hit bad and, 2.) Mommy is a good tenant that doesn't give them too much shit (but also doesn't let them roll over her).

Uhh, I...still can't quite believe it myself.

2.) Another Awesome Sauce Sharing post is coming up!! It's gon' be late, but hang in there!

3.) I finally figured out the wifi just late last night! Basically, all I needed to do was log into our cable provider's free wifi and...voila! I already downloaded my favorite Cooking Dash onto Bleepy (it's free!) and I can't wait to browse and download so, so many more things!

4.) Fanfiction is coming up, too, loves. Wonderful, wonderful fanfiction. Teehee! Stay tuned!

Edit: 5.) Whoops! Forgot to mention that the anatomy & physiology sharing will continue!!!! Still got subjects to share from the end of the semester, so look out for that, too!!

I just checked my final grades online.

I made my A's.

I made my two A's in my lecture and lab classes.

I...I just...I'm tryna not to sob and make a mess of myself. I know next semester is gonna be hell-times-two, but currently, there's just this weight lifted off of me. Mommy is affectionately rolling her eyes at me because I stressed out over that B on that one test, and wittle Dante is looking at me like I'm something new.

Holy fucking shit, I did it.

I made my A's.

Note: I been wanting to say this for a while, now. And yes, I am hopelessly laughing.

Under my Blackout Day picture this time...I done stopped saying, "Hey, if you have any selfies, please share them in the comments!"

And y'know why? 'Cause almost ain't nobody ever share their selfies for Blackout Day in my comments.

And y'know why that is? Because so, so many of ya'll are white.

Whitey McWhite. Midwest White. Drink-Milk-Everyday-White. Cheese-Sandwich-White.

Ya'll can either get a tan in the sun or you outright burn in the sun. Hell, ya'll'd probably get sunburn from just the phone's camera flash if you tried to participate in Blackout Day.

So, so, so, so many of my blogging friends are white. Be it Dreamwdith, Ana Mardoll's Ramblings, or Shakesville...ya'll are all so white. I love and appreciate every last one of ya'll, but Jesus Christ. I've had this blog since 2011 and been hanging out at Ana Mardoll's since about 2008, but...how did it ever get to this point? My goodness.

I have a party over on Tumblr on Blackout Days, but I ain't got next to nobody over here to do Blackout Day with. My god.

Ain't nobody to do Blackout Day selfies with me over here. Ya'll are all so white.

-lolsob-

-still, truly laughing helplessly-

I don't quite have a whole lotta spoons to talk much right now, but...here is a petition from Change.org.

It's a huge, huge petition for the Electoral College, which officially meets to cast their votes on December 19th, to officially elect Hillary Clinton as President of the United States of America. It is a petition for the Electoral College to abide by the people's wishes (Hillary Clinton won our popular vote fair and square), even if it goes against their particular state. You'll see at just a glance that it's already quickly nearing 3 million signatures from supporters and that number is climbing by the minute.

I and a whole lotta other people know it's a long shot. A very, very, very long shot. But the worst thing that can happen is what is already happening.

Ain't nobody got anything left to lose at this point and I, for one, don't have a whole lot of room in my life to lose all hope and stop fighting.

So please, if you can just spare a few minutes of your time, sign this petition and lets see if we can get true hope and justice roaring back to life in this country again. Pretty please with a cherry on top.

How Ya'll Doin'?

I admit I'm kinda glued to my computer, constantly looking for glimmers of hope and reassurances. I fully admit that I'm still in a bit of denial; I'm still waiting to wake up and see that the white woman won.

I all but don't feel safe to go out in public and, yes, I worry when Mommy goes out to go to work for sure. Thankfully, nothing has happened.

Umm...so time to be positive, yeah? Time to take care of ourselves, huh? I got shit to study and shit to write; much work to do, no matter what happens.

So how are ya'll doin' in the meantime, hmm?

You made your third straight 97 in the lecture class for the semester. And you teacher still be giving you those smiles.

And then your Mommy treats you to Captain D's afterward.

Ahhh, what a good feeling.
