ThrowbackThursday.

I was basically the best t-ball player in all of Penn Yan. And by the best I mean I used to pick dandelions in the outfield. Seriously though, how many 7 year olds can hit a baseball out to right field?

Today’s Throwback Thursday picture is from 1992. I was seven years old (I turned 8 that August). I was on a t-ball team called “Joe’s Engine”. Some girl named Ashley and I used to pick dandelions in the outfield.

I recently saw a video of myself during one of my games. I was sitting on the bench waiting for my turn to bat.

“Sitting” = spinning, jumping, clapping, bouncing, and waving to mum and dad while waiting for my turn to bat. Yes, I was that kid.

Apparently.

Glad to know my fidgety-ness has not gone away though there is less twirling, spinning, and jumping and more leg bouncing, pen clicking, and foot tapping.

The joys of ADD.

Well this explains a lot.

Well this explains a lot.

I am not an outwardly emotional person. I’m pretty level headed, rational, and straight faced. I have a very good “poker face”. However, like most normal girls out there, there are certain times when I tend to be a bit more…hmm…how do I say this…sensitive? Pathetic? Hormonal? Unexplainable? Irrational?

Let’s just say when the ASPCA commercials come on, I don’t move freakishly fast to change the channel out of hatred for the song Angel but more so out of fear I will become a big pathetic ball of snot, tears, and emotion once the images of sad puppies fills the screen.

I WANT TO PUNCH PUPPIES AND SCREAM AND CRY AND LAUGH AND EAT EVERY CARB IN SIGHT?**

That explains it quite well, yes.

**FYI: I really don’t get angry or grouchy. I really don’t want to punch puppies or scream. Cry? Yes. Eat carbs? Yes. And chocolate. And chips. And pizza. And ALLTHETHINGS.

But, like all tough German women, I will press on. I will ignore the pain that feels as though my uterus is filled with thousands of sword-wielding soldiers and instead, focus my energy on a paper about the movie Braveheart. And when I am finished, I will crawl into my warm bed, raise my arms up high, and shout “[I WANT] FREEEEDOMMMM [FROM TAMPONS AND CRAMPS AND CRAVINGS]!”

P.S. UHM?????!!!!!

What the?

What the “expletive”?

ThrowbackThursday.

So fashionable. Check out the kitty shirt!

So fashionable. Check out the kitty shirt!

Apparently I didn’t always hate cats. In fact, I loved cats so much I wore shirts embellished with pictures of them.

This was taken in 1989 I believe. In Melbourne, Australia. We were having some sort of festival at school. It was casual day since I’m not in my uniform (I have a picture of me wearing my school uniform somewhere).

FINALS! AHHH!

This is my study set-up. Complete with my idea of "stress" food. Twinings Earl Grey Tea and Swedish Ginger Snaps.

Finals have approached. Rather quickly I might add. Where the heck did the semester go?

Crikey.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Sorry. I suck. I know. I promise to return soon though.

My life was pretty lame for awhile there.

And by awhile I mean for the past 28 years.

Whatever. I like it. It’s mine. I can do whatever I want with it.

I’m writing this after another break from studying. Probably a too soon break but I have all night to study as I have already decreed a no-sleep-for-jessi-all-night night.

Tomorrow is going to suck grande cojones (Fact: I just Googled “How do you say balls in Spanish” because I didn’t know how to spell cojones) but oh well. Come Tuesday at 10am I will be a school-free woman until early-January. Check it.

I hope to have a lot of sub jobs until December 21st when school lets out for the local district. So far nothing though. Bummer.

I really need money. I’ve barely worked all semester. Funds are low peeps.

Charity is welcomed.

Just kidding.

But seriously.

Other than working I also plan on writing again. I’ve neglected my novel for almost two years now. I wrote a couple of pages a few weeks ago. Slow and steady wins the race right?

I have yet another book idea. I need to either stop getting book ideas or write faster. This is getting a little out of hand.

Well, my study break is over. I have a few minutes to go reheat my tea before I reread for the millionth time about ancient China, Japan, Africa, Europe, and the Americas. I love history, I love history, I love history.

I will keep chanting this mantra all night.

I love history, I love history, I love history…

Ahh!

I’m so sorry, dear friends, that I have not written in ages. I’ve been busy with school and trying to get good grades.

Life is good, just a bit busy at the moment. Nothing too new to report. I’m still cycling, though not as much due to the rain and cold we’ve been having lately. I need to find some cycling pants. I haven’t been reading the book but my fall break starts after classes tomorrow so I will try my best to resume reading it and updating you on it.

I hope all is well in your lives.

As a parting gift I will leave you with this video of this crazy man jumping from the stratosphere. Yikesabee!

Why I use Pinterest.

I don’t use Pinterest to find delicious recipes or plan my imaginary wedding. I use Pinterest to find pictures of hot, shirtless men and funny pins that show off my wicked sense of humour.

Find me on Pinterest. Search Jessi Falk. Prepare to laugh your butt off and to be mesmerized by the hotness.
