Today I wasn't feeling well and all I wanted to do was curl up in bed and read...and I did just that. I finished the second Chelsea Handler book. I liked it a lot; the nutball stories she recalls from her past are funny (I caught myself laughing out loud a few times). I am sure most of these stories are embellished for entertainment purposes but it was great! I really want to read her first book, My Horizontal Life, but of course I am like number 100 and something waiting for it from the library. I am hoping to borrow it from a friend though. I need to start the 8th Sookie Stackhouse so I can be done! I also have a little list of books I want/need to read; among them: 1) The Tale of the Body Thief, 2) Marley & Me, and 3) Hunger Games. I think those should last me till summer starts since I do not get much reading done throughout the school year....one thing I wish I could change.

I am stuck in one building all day (well when I go to school) and there are many vending machines throughout the building. I can get any drink imaginable as well as anything to snack on. However, getting a bottle of water seems to be impossible for whatever reason I am not sure. I would like to first state that I usually have at least one bottle of water with me from home...seeing as how I am a poor college student and it is much cheaper than the $1.25 bottled water here.
The first incident occurred when I had no water and was parched; I ran downstairs and came across at least three beverage vending machines...no water, just sodas, teas, cold coffees, etc. Then I ran upstairs and finally one machine with one option for water. I quickly put my quarters in, hit the button, and screamed inside as "sold out" started blinking across the little screen. So I had to get a root beer and that was OKAY...I gave up soda and one isn't going to kill me.
The next run in with the vending machines was when I was trying to purchase some cookies during a three hour class. I put in 50 cents and the machine ate them...I had no other change. I was irritated!
Well today I had a water bottle but had lost in when I threw my bag into Celaschi's car on my way to school. I was dying for some water. So I grabbed my $1.25 and headed back up to the same machine with the water and I WAS NOT GOING TO BE TAKEN AGAIN. Before I put my money in the machine I pushed the button and it said the amount (which last time I checked meant it wasn't sold out). So I put my money in press the water button and watch as nothing happens and the words "SOLD OUT" run across the screen....AGAIN!!! So I have another root beer with me...my second slip up this year...irritating because its not like I am craving them at all.
I have come to the conclusion that 1) I hate vending machines and 2) My school is dumb for having many of non-water vending machines.

This Friday the new movie He's Just Not That Into comes out. So of course we are having a girls night, dinner first and then the movie. If you know me even a little you would not be surprised to find that I immediately picked up the book to read before I went to see it. I am looking forward to seeing this movie since the book is more of a self-help than a story. I will like this since most books are much better than the movie and it makes seeing the movie that much more irritating.
So the book, I liked it a lot. It had some very good points and I definitely saw myself (and some of my friends) in a lot of the "situations". So I will definitely try out this new philosophy on dating and see what happens, you never know right?
At the end of the book they ask you to make a list of your standards and no matter what for any reason should you ever date a man that does not meet your standards. I didn't write a list of mine yet. But here is a list they gave to get you started...
1. I will not go out with a man who hasn't asked me out first.
2. I will not go out with a man who keeps me waiting by the phone.
3. I will not date a man who isn't sure he wants to date me.
4. I will not date a man who makes me feel sexually undesirable.
5. I will not date a man who drinks or does drugs to an extent that makes me uncomfortable.
6. I will not date a man who's afraid to talk about our future.
7. I will not, under any circumstances, spend my precious time with a man who has already rejected me.
8. I will not date a man who is married.
9. I will not be with a man who is not clearly a good, kind, and loving person.
I will think of some of my own later...anyone have any good ones to add??
