One of the dreams I had last night was about me being pregnant. I was like 3-4 months in and I was just so happy and excited. It was just really great and I felt so good. Then when I woke up I was really disappointed that I'm not and wont be for quite some time. This is the second or third dream I've had in the past two months or so about being pregnant. I don't know what it means... it's not something I think about all the time. Sometimes I do, but not overly. Maybe it's just because I'm having such a hard time with life things lately.
I can't find a job, I'm still in school(granted, I just started going back), I don't have a boyfriend or any kind of relationship, I still live at home. I just feel like I'm not up to speed, or where I should be. I just have to keep telling myself that I'm in school to be a teacher... I'll get my degree, get my masters and I'll find a real job and things will get better. But it's hard and I feel like I'm failing. :/

Tomorrow I'll talk about Rob the UPS man and how his girlfriend apparently cheated on him this past weekend while she was away and how this scares me!

Little Blonde Mohawk

It always happens
No matter how hard I try
Five minutes after I shave
I begin to cry.
No cuts, no nicks, no blood to be seen
Just a little blonde mohawk
going straight up my knee.

I'm a dragonfly doctor. For real!

About 20 minutes ago I was sitting outside with my Mom and working on another blanket.
We were sitting by the pool on the bricks and I hear a noise behind me in the woods. I turn to look and nothing was there and as I was turning my head back to my work I noticed a commotion in the pool. A little dragon fly had landed in the water and it's wings were all wet. It couldn't get out. :(
I quickly put my blanket down and got the skimmer to get it out. I got it out very gently and set the whole thing in the grass. I watched it for a little bit and it finally moved and tried to flap it's wings. I noticed then that it had 4 wings instead of two but they were stuck together. It kept flapping it's wings trying to get them unstuck but they didn't move. I tried to help with my finger but thought that might be too much for it.
I tried to move it off of the net so I could get a better angle and it climbed up on my finger. I couldn't even feel it, except for it's legs. I could feel them gripping my finger. It had a long, long skinny tail that it could curl up. It curled it up and tried to rub the wings apart but it didn't work.
That's when I took a blade of grass and set out to do some dragonly surgery.
I took the blade of grass and ripped it so it came to a nice point then very carefully I put the blade inbetween the wings and so so so slowy ran it until the wings came apart. The dragonfly didn't try to get away or make it seem like I was hurting it plus it didn't try to hop off my finger or anything. So I gave him a minute to rest and he was cleaning his eyes and curling his tail trying to get his wings apart and trying to flap them. I repeated the same process on the other set of wings and he stood on my finger for another minute flapping his wings and cleaning his eyes.
Just as I was saying "If I put you down for a second promise not to fly away?" He flew away.haha I wanted to get my camera. :(

So I hope I did a good deed. He flew away with a lot of gusto, so hopefully he has a new lease on life and will protect me from mosquitos in the future. :)

This is what he looked like, just not black and yellow. He was more silvery:
