The Meme fever continues!

Do you talk to the person you like everyday?: It's weird because I really don't have a specific crush/bf right now. If I did, especially if I was in a relationship I would usually.

Do you have trouble deleting your text messages?: I know how to, but I just usually let them "delete themselves" as when I get one it replaces my least recent saved one.

What hurts more, to forgive for someone's wrong-doing or to regret something you did wrong?
It depends on what it was. I would usually say that I have a harder time forgiving myself.

How many different houses have you lived in throughout your life?: So many...it's in the double digits (my dad was in the military etc.)

Do you lose your keys easily?: not as much as I used to

What hurts the most?: ...This question can be interpreted a lot of ways. I would say losing a person that you love.

When at the computer, is it hard to type in the dark or do you NEED a light on?: I prefer a light on usually, but it isn't that hard to type in the dark

How are you right this second?: Apparently just being an insomniac as usual, but I'm good

Would you rather go to a baseball game or a football game?: baseball

Is there anything you disliked about your birthday this year?: I wasn't able to really relax and enjoy it as much as my previous one since I had a lot due for college

Would you rather buy a CD from a store, or burn it off of the computer?: for one particular artist it's a lot easier to buy from the store, but for a mix I go for the computer, so both I guess.

Is your room clean and tidy or messy?: lol, do you know me?! It's pretty messy, but I have been trying to clean it, I just have too much stuff and don't part easily with it

If you were to win a vacation to anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be to?: Hmm...I have more than one, I love any warm locale especially Cali and Florida as far as the U.S. goes and want to go to Hawaii. As for other countries Austraila, Japan, Italy, China, Paris and England are high on the list.

Is there something that you haven't told anyone that you actually would like to tell someone?: I'm usually pretty open, I can't think of much that I haven't told someone...I guess I can tell you all that I have a bigger celeb crush now on that guy Kenny Santucci from the Real World/Road Rules Challenges even though I can't explain why really hahahaha...

Would you rather rent or buy movies?: rent if it's not something I really like, buy if it's something I really like

Which celebrity would you like to meet the most?: I have met my favorite baseball player, Garrett Atkins if you classify MLB players as celebrities. I guess I have a few: Kenny Santucci as mentioned above, Joshua Jackson, James Lafferty, Chad Michael Murray, Jennifer Aniston, Coral from Real World, etc.

Would you rather watch a full season of American Idol, or So You Think You Can Dance?I have watched a few episodes of each..I guess so you think you can dance.

Do you like to take walks?: yeah I love to, I need to take more

Have you ever gone anywhere for spring break?: AZ, NM

Do you worry a lot?: sometimes

Would you rather have big or small dogs?: medium sized

Do you mind being cold?: I don't like being cold persay, I am much more of a warm weather person, but I do love hoodies and the warmth of a blanket or that special someone...

What is your favorite sports drink?: fruit punch gatoraide

Do you keep a diary or journal (offline or online)?: you are looking at it.

Have you ever had your heart broken?: yes

Do you get into a lot of arguments with the guy/girl you like?: not really into one person specifically right now

Have you ever waited for something for so long and then had it snatched from right underneath you when it seemed so close to grasp?: yeah

AIM or MSN?: I have them but I am never on MSN and its RARE that I am on AIM.

Choose one: being able to teleport yourself anywhere in the world at any given time or being able to fly?: that's a tough choice, but maybe teleport, since I could be wherever with whoever instantly

Do you feel more comfortable in public wearing jeans or sweat pants?: either one honestly. If I see a person I am into, I would probably want to be dressed nicer ideally, but it's not like a person you date or hang with for any amount of time won't see you in your sweats sometimes, so if they do it's ok.

What is something that most people wouldn't know about you from simply looking at you? Hmmm...that I like rap music lol idk...

What is your favorite TV show?: I really like TV when I need to relax, so I watch all sorts of stuff. I really do like One Tree Hill. Lately I have been really into mtv reality stuff, especially the Real World/Road Rules Challenges, maybe it's because of that Kenny Santucci guy haha. I also like South Park,MADtv and Family Guy for a good laugh. I never miss Grey's Anatomy, The Hills, or Rockies All Access either haha.

Do you fear growing older?: not really

Have you ever been called a tease?: yeah a couple times i guess, but it doesn't bother me because if you are not ok with doing something you shouldn't do it.

Is there something that reminds you of someone every time you see or hear it?: lots of songs remind me of people such as "I'm a flirt or gimme more" for troy tulowitzki etc.

5.Put this on your journal.

(I am going to do the song analysis thing and put comments in parentheses :) )

The Way I Are-Timbaland (I guess this says that I am authentic and will be honest if something was ok and that I am ok with people being themselves :) )

3.What do you like in a guy/girl?
My Baby Loves Me Just The Way that I am-Martina McBride (I guess this means that I want a guy that likes the real me. Also that I would accept the person I am with just the way they are. This is a good one. :) )

4.How do you feel today?
I'll Be There-Mariah Carey (I guess this signifies that I will be there for the person or people I care about in my life, although I want to be there for those I love as much as possible, not just today.)

5.What is your life's purpose?
I'm Leaving-Jesse McCartney (haha, I guess this means I am the love 'em and leave em type lol, just kidding. I think this means that one of my life's purposes is not just to stay in a situation with a guy because it's comfortable or stay in one where I am not being treated right. Also that I shouldn't be afraid of my feelings for someone, because love and life are about taking risks.)

6.What is your motto?
The Middle-Jimmy Eat World (I guess this just means that sometimes in life people will judge you and my motto is to "just live right now and just be yourself, it doesn't matter if it's good enough for someone else". :) )

7.What do your friends think of you?
These Are My People-Rodney Atkins (OMG...swear it landed on this one randomly and it's so perfect! I guess it just means my true friends regard me as "their people" and that we are family! This is how I do regard my friends too! :) )

8.What do you think of your parents?
Streetcorner Symphony-Rob Thomas (This is a very positive song and it states that people should be there for one another and how to love and let love go...I felt like my parents taught me a lot about how to love and be there for people.)

Truly Madly Deeply-Savage Garden (I guess this suggests that I think a lot about finding that guy who will be right for me to be with...in other words like the love of my life/soulmate. I admit this to be true.)

10.What is 2 2?
Red High Heels-Kellie Pickler(Not sure what this means)

11.What do you think of your best friend?
Cyclone- T-pain (lol, this is one of the really random ones too. My bff is a girl, Jessa, and we are both straight females. I guess what I can draw is that she is in demand, well-liked, and has class. ;) )

12.What do you think of the person you like?
Crash and Burn-Savage Garden (I don't really have a crush [other than like my "celeb" ones on Garrett Atkins and Kenny Santucci that is... ;)] I think this means is that I would like my crush or the person I want to be with to be there for me to pick me up when I am down or bummed or whatever and that I would never feel alone if I had them. And vice versa. )

13.What is your life story?
Grillz-Nelly (LOL, I guess this just means that my life story is that I think I am "thug" much like Troy Tulowitzki does ;) haha. I'm such a gangsta! :) )

14.What do you want to be when you grow up?
Summer Girls-LFO (haha random...I am very much a summer girl and do like a lot of things that the girl they are singing about does, but I don't really think it's much of a career other than maybe being a heartbreaker lol.)

15.What do you think of when you see the person you like?
I Don't Want To Miss A Thing-Aerosmith (This one isn't bad, actually pretty good. A little intense for someone I would just have a crush on, but perfect for falling in love. That I would think of them all the time and I don't want to miss experience falling in love with them and all that they have to offer. :) )

16.What will you dance to at your wedding?
I'll Make Love To You-Boyz 2 Men (LOL, I guess this comes from me always liking to dance to slow r&b songs that are usually pretty sappy. Also of course implying that my groom wants to take time to satisfy me and make me happy in every way hehehe...;) )

17.What will they play at your funeral?
I like the way you move-Outkast (Oh dear...I don't have an explanation for this one. RANDOM)

18.What is your hobby/interest?
Fallin'-Alicia Keys (Apparently falling in and out of love with the person I like haha)

19.What is your biggest fear?
Up Against the Wall-NSYNC (LOL, I guess being held up against the wall in a sexual way by someone who makes me uncomfortable. Although with a person I was into in that way, I might be pretty ok with it haha ;) )

20.What is your biggest secret?
Dr. Jones-Aqua (This would imply that I was lonely from a summer love, which was true a year ago, but right now I don't have one nor do I miss one. I am ok with being single, I'm very picky about who I date. I am a little lonely at times, since I am not dating any one seriously, but its ok.)

21.What do you think of your friends?
Back Where I come From-Kenny Chesney (I guess this says that I will always be with my friends when it's all said and done, because they are what home is to me. :) )

22.What will you post this as?
Clothes Off- Gym Class Heroes (We have to take our clothers off...We have to party all night! This meme apparently is about havin a good time ;))


This is called the "alternative life meme" and basically you just have to fill out those questions with the celebrities or fictional characters that come to your mind. BUT you can only pick a person once!! No repetitions, kay? Then tag 3 other users! (This is going to be the hardest part since a few of the guys could very well fall under multiple categories!)

01. The guy you would take to meet your parents: Probably Jeff Francis. He is smart, nice, cute, and I don't see how any parent could dislike him. My mom also loves him.

02. The one girl you would do: I am very straight, but it would definately be Sophia Bush from One Tree Hill! I just love her and she is beautiful!

03. The guy you'd have sex with in your parents bed: Again I have to agree with April, Ryan Spilborghs, it would be so kinky, but it is Ryan Spilborghs. Ryan's a cutie and always up for the daring.

04. The girl you'd take to the mall: Matt Herges' wife. I have met her a couple times and she always has the cutest outfits!

05. Your male BFF: Jamey Carroll, because he actually is a friend of mine and I know he has all the qualities of an awesome friend who would always be there for me and we would have fun. He would do anything for the people he cares about.

06. Your female BFF: Brad Hawpe's wife, because she is upbeat, she's fun, has great values, and just would be the type of person I would hang with.

07. Your gay BFF: I really have to agree with April on this one!-> "Eric Byrnes LOL he acts so fruity a lot of the time, he'd make the perfect gay friend." I actually like Eric Byrnes and his personality would make me happy and make him an awesome BFF! :)

8. The guy who'd take you to prom: Brad Hawpe, because not only is he really cute/sweet/nice/goodlucking etc., he has a good sense of humor and seems like he would be romantic and treat you right, as well as would dance a decent amount.

09. Your big brother: Todd Helton, because he is such a fatherly/brotherly figure who would watch out for you and literally take you under his wing.

10. The guy you'd marry: Garrett Atkins. If you know me, I don't have to explain my fondness for the man. He could fall under a ton of these categories in my world, but it has also been said in interviews that he would make the perfect husband and I agree.

11. The two guys you'd have a threesome with: Greg Reynolds and Chris Iannetta. Even though this is somewhat disturbing and dirty, I do love those two seperately in so many ways (and they are good buddies...and plus they have that whole pitcher/catcher combo going on) hehe.

12. The girl and guy you'd have a threesome with: Ok so this is an alternate universe, remember that, but totally Seth Smith and his wife! They are both so good looking and nice!

13. The guy you'd go clubbing with: LaTroy Hawkins...he's a great dancer and would be fun to hang with anywhere since he is so chill.

14. The guy you'd have angry hot sex with: Troy Tulowitzki, I love Troy but he is emotionally charged and does get angry at times, so I know it would indeed be angry but also HOT!

16. The girl you'd call after a break-up: I'm changing this to the guy I would call after a breakup for support, which would be Aaron Cook. He is such a calm and friendly guy that I know he would be helpful and cheer me up.

17. The guy you'd have sex with when no one else is around: Ian Stewart..don't get me wrong, Ian is a cutie, but it would feel weird since I have met his wife and also would be shocking to other people since I used to think I couldn't be a fan of both him and Garrett Atkins since they played the same position (dumb I know).

18. The guy you'd have sex with when you're cheating on your hubby/boyfriend: I would have to say David Wright like April lol. He is very attractive on multiple levels and is a good guy, but I say he would be the one I cheated with because of that and the fact that it would feel like cheating because he is the only guy on this list who isn't a Rockies player or a former Rockies player (including Byrnsie, who was with the Rockies for a short time) lol.

19. The guy you'd tell all your secrets: Clint Barmes, because he is such a great and trustworthy guy that I know he would keep them and he is the type of guy I would wind up telling my lifestory to (and he would actually listen lol).

20. The person you'd commit a murder with: Totally me and Ubaldo Jimenez lol! Seriously, who would suspect a cute, innocent looking duo like us?!

21. The boy you'd go to the gym with: Matt Holliday...nobody is built like Matt and he loves working out so much that working out would be a blast and actually be worth it! Not to mention Matt is just plain handsome.

22. Your shoulder to cry on: Definately Matt Herges. He would be very supportive, caring and would do anything he could to help with a problem.

23. The guy you'd ask to beat up your cheating boyfriend: Yorvit Torrealba. He is a very friendly but emotionally charged guy, but I bet if you mess with anyone he cares about, watch out!

24. The guy you'd always come back to: Willy Taveras. He just has that smile, he could probably get away with anything.

25. The guy you'd die for: Any of them!<-agreed

In a bad, bad mood...

While nothing earthshattering has happened, the "events" of the last 48 hours or so have given me a negative vibe. The Rockies have lost 7 in a row...yeah it sucks that they have done so badly, but honestly I can't do anything to change how they play. Yes, I will still watch, I do have tickets for 3 of the games, but I am honestly not looking forward to it as much as I used to. I am really starting to believe that I should have stayed in Greeley for the summer and gotten a job. A lot of my friends have graduated/are not in Greeley for the summer, but Ginny would have still been up there and her company is better than most I am finding. Her party had bad end results, but that was as relaxed as I have been in a long time. It was nice to let go of all the bullshit weighing me down and just relax with people who weren't judging me or who didn't play games with me. All in all, none of the drama that occured was in direct relation to me, it was more just that I felt bad at what happened to my friend as a result.

I have really been trying to be calm and not let all the bullshit things that don't mean anything bother me, but it's starting to add up. I love my mom dearly...and god knows she has done a lot of shit for me especially recently, but she is driving me up the wall! My parents' house is huge, but I feel like I have no space or privacy. I should be so happy...I am not working this summer when everyone else I know is and I myself have worked every summer at a job since I was in 8th grade. I took this time off to better my health, fitness, and to try to help my mom around here. Those things are achieved, but not consistently...and honestly more time is spent involving me going on my mother's errands. Yes, my mom insists and literally raises hell if I don't go with her on every trip to king soopers, walmart, and the like. It's not like I mind doing it on occasion and she does do a lot for me, but there isn't much time spent apart. Also, quite honestly, when I run errands it doesn't take me nearly as long and I don't go nearly as frequently she does. A 1/2 hour is a very long time for me, but for her it's like 5 minutes. I guess its my mom and I will find a way to deal with the situation, one way or another.

I am also just upset about a relationship with a friend of mine. I was going to divulge into it, but now i don't feel like it. More to come on this situation later possibly.
So last night was my friend Ginny's housewarming party at her new house. I was very happy and excited about seeing her, the event in general, and the fact that the house (which is an older one and was originally somewhat gross from the people that lived there previously) looked much better since it had been cleaned up and had gotten new carpeting. Ginny's room in particular looked so much better once she had fixed it up. The night started off ok. I didn't really know a lot of the people there and Ginny had been drinking a lot (plus she is a social butterfly to begin with), so I just had a couple of drinks and just tried to chill since I am somewhat shy at meeting new people. I relaxed after a bit a began talking to some of the guys who were playing beer pong, including one who mentioned the Rockies and was dressed in a purple shirt and a Rox hat. The Rockies are always an easy conversation for me to join and this one was no different. At any rate as the night went on, Ginny had had a lot to drink and left to go be sick in the bathroom. There had been some people outside just smoking cigarettes and chilling, but nothing alarming that I knew of. Right after Ginny had gone to the restroom however, I heard a loud noise and sound of breaking glass outside. I knocked on the door and alerted Ginny that something was going on and she'd better come out. Ginny ran outside, just as two of the guys,Conor and Jimmy, that had been playing beer pong came inside with blood on parts of their bodies. Conor and Jimmy are friends with Ginny's roommate Kyle. It turned out that Conor and Jimmy had just tried to break up the fight and that Kyle and one of the past tennants of Ginny's house had gotten into the fight. I never saw the other guy, but Kyle was bleeding badly from his hand and probably needs stitches. There was also however, a lot of damage done to the house itself. The screen door to the basement entrance of Ginny's house had all the glass smashed out of it, not to mention blood all over the cement in the doorway and the inside of the basement part of the house. The house also has a brick-walled front porch...which now has several of the bricks smashed out of it. Ginny of course was livid and I couldn't blame her. I just tried to be as supportive and calm as I could to her. The police were called, but there were no tickets or violations given out. Ginny and I eventually went to ihop with one of the guys that was still around and got back around 5:30am. I slept a little on Ginny's couch, but wound up going back to my apartment which is only a couple blocks away from her house. The bad news wasn't over though. Ginny texted me this afternoon and told me that she is positive that her laptop was stolen during the party. She and I both figure it happened during the fighting, but I don't think she has any insurance or protection on it. I really feel bad for her.

I love the Tulo moods!

I love pynk-spyder for making these, that is all.

An update of sorts..

Recently things have been going well for the most part in the world of Nikki. While the Rockies lost Sunday, they did show signs of life winning the previous 4 games in a row, including Greg Reynolds' first Major League win on Saturday! I got to experience the magic in person on Saturday with my mom and my new friends Hilary and Gillian. It was really a great night! Game Hilights included a Brad Hawpe Grand Slam, Iannetta and Stewart homers, and of course those darling Tulo bobbleheads! :) I am for sure going to Wednesday's game against the Giants and the makeup game against the Braves, as well as probably a couple of others including one of the games a couple weekends from now against the Mets with Hilary and Gillian again. It has been really cool meeting all the fellow Rockies/baseball fans that I have gotten to meet over the past few months. There are still a couple I need to meet up with, like my friend Missy. :)

I also had a nice morning/afternoon on Saturday with my best friend, Jessa and her mom, Sally. We had waffles and they gave me a mickey shaped waffle iron which I love! Did I mention I love waffles?!?! We also went to the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall which was really good. In order to see it we had to go to a new theatre. Said new theatre was very cool and unique, since it had an admission price of $9 which included free popcorn and free soda for each person! There were also big armrests inside the theatre which had a space for your snacks as well as your drink. It was neat..we all think we will go back there again. Jessa, Sally, and I have also embarked on the Fitness Challenge plan which starts today actually. There is a list of 20-30 minute fitness activities that we can do to earn a star for each particular day and the third day of excercising in a week counts as 3 stars, moving you up to a total of 5 and then goes back to one star for each individual day. There will also be rewards for the challenge..YEAH! We are keeping track of it on google calendars which I have found I really like using haha. Anyway, of course it is always awesome to see Jessa and Sally, since they are two of the people who know me best in the world. I guess it's not that surprising that your best friend since 7th grade would know you so well haha. Jessa and I will probably be going to Elitch Garden's with her Dad and stepsiblings soon as well, which I am totally revved about since I haven't been there literally in years.

I have actually done a decent job of keeping in touch with friends and they haven't done a bad job with keeping in touch with me. I went up to Greeley to pay some bills and clean my apartment and also helped Ginny paint her room in her new house. It was good seeing her and she appreciated the help. The only minor problem is that just as my new friends asked me to go to the mets game a couple weekends from now, she announced her housewarming would be on the same night as one of the games, but it will all work out hopefully hehe. I was a little worried about my friend Sarah, but she has just been busy since her school runs during the summer and she is working as well. We will hang out when things calm down for her. I finally got in touch with Laura last night and we had a long phone convo. Even though a lot of things have changed since Laura I first became friends, she is still as awesome a buddy as ever and is totally supportive of me. I need to call Johno since he hasn't been able to get a hold of me much lately. Even though, she is headed to Arizona, MaiLe and I have been in touch through text and computer as well. I talked to Abram and will hear more soon about his new dog and recent trip to Cali. Kalina and I have met up at a few Rockies games and kept in touch on the computer. I need to drop some of my online friends a line, because they do mean a lot to me as well. :)

In regards to the fitness challenge and in general to my health, there are a few updates about my health. I had a physical on friday and in addition to getting a chicken pox shot (since I have never had them)which I am still having an itchy/painful/red rash reaction to, I have been told I need to reduce my stress and get off of at least some of the medication I take for stress and headaches. I also really need to better my diet and lose a significant amount of weight, which in combination with all the things I have to help my mom with regarding the house and cleaning, has led me to the decision that I will probably not be working this summer. It is the first summer I haven't worked since 8th grade and I am now heading into my last semester of college, so I really don't feel guilty. Most people my age don't play the same role in a parent's life that I do to my mom, since my dad passed away and I have no siblings. I really don't mind doing it, but it takes up as much time as a job would quite honestly, and I need to get into healthier habits for fall semester. I have also been taking a lot more time to read and develop myself into a more well rounded person.

I still love the Rockies..

but must we continue to go thru such horrific times...I have also discovered the hell that is playing without Matt Holliday/Tulo/Clint Barmes. How I miss them....ARGH! This has also led me to the theory that *beloved* Garrett Atkins is A)still hurt/doesn't have his swing/timing back and/or B) is missing his best pal Matt and doesn't hit as well without him or is trying to overcompensate for his absence. Either way it isn't working...0-5 is unusual for our darling Fankles. Still love him like a fat kid loves cake though!:0)

Spilly is our only light in the dark...also had a nice segment getting a tat in honor of his mom who had been through some rough times healthwise on rockies all access. Woohoo Yeehoo...I actually love him also! :0)

Rockies please right the sinking ship!

Dear Rockies Organization,
I know teams go through ups and downs, but before we go through some more downs lets go through some ups. Not to single anyone out, but Helton and Hawpe, please come back to planet earth and help the team, meaning not going a combined 0-8 like tonight. And Tracy Ringolsby for god's sake please do not start this Holliday trade bullshit, as well as the now-common trade Atkins and Fuentes talk. Because I guess instead of being 12 games out of the division and eons below 500, we want to be 0 for the season in wins. Why dont we trade Cook while we're at it since we want everyone who is contributing gone baby gone. I am in the middle of what is supposed to be a great weekend, that I have been looking forward to for months, where my two favorite teams in the world are playing each other. Instead I have to hear about our franchises best players in trade threats and we can't win a game. Hurdle needs to step up and fire up this team or someone else does. Get your act together! Show me that more than a couple people on this team have 1/4 of the fortitude and heart they had last year!

an emotionally/physically exhausted and sick diehard fan.

Still cranky and also tired...

In spite of being pretty productive and trying to be optimistic, I am still in a terrible mood. I ate for the first time today at 5pm, after driving up from my mom's after spending all morning on the paper. Before dinner was class, then running off pages for my book paper, then going to the grocery store for a few necessary items. I then had to bring in my groceries and weekend stuff from the car. After dinner I did a small toning workout with my dumbbells, then hit the showers. I was going so well, but then I got tired and decided to watch the rockies of course. Everything from there went way downhill, although I did finish my review of the play from hell. The Rockies lost AGAIN, I didn't get to go to the chiropractor when I really needed to, the drive from my mom's to up here was very stressful, and I am still not close to finishing all my work that is due tomorrow. I finished the 10 page paper this morning and have also finished my play critique due tomorrow morning at 9:30am. I also ran off the book pages for my paper in Pawlowski's class, but haven't started the paper for that yet. It's just a 2-3 pager due tomorrow at 12:30pm. It wouldn't normally be a problem, but I am so tired that everything seems hard right now. I also have the PR Plan due tomorrow at 3:30pm. If worse came to worse, I guess I could work on it for the approx. hour and 45 minutes I will have after my second class. After these last two things are done plus the critique I already did, a big chunk of the work for this week will be done. However, there is still the need for two more labs, the feminism final Wednesday, the Theatre final Thursday, and the incompletes. Plus the two actual finals I have next week (Astronomy and Tv crit), meeting with my client to give them the final pr plan, and the Theatre final project. I really cannot emphasize how HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY I will be when this semester from hell is FINALLY over!
