Seriously........

I start a lot of titles that way........seriously....LOL! So I posted last night about my displeasure with the Big 10 and how they were flipping a coin for home field advantage. Then I went to bed and I am lying there thinking........really, the basic advantage is what uniform they get to wear, as I am fairly certain that they are playing the game in Indianapolis. No doubt that there is some psychological advantage to being the "home" team, but not the same as being able to play in your OWN stadium (which is not the case). So.....guess what.........it really doesn't matter that they flipped a coin for home field advantage. Meh.

The Big 10 can NOT be thinking things out very well.

So I just visited my twitter account (yeah, no one reads what I write there either...LMAO!) Anyway.....The Big 10 just tweeted that for the championship game home field advantage was determined by a coin toss (MSU winning) and from here on out it go back and forth between the divisions. Ok, I may not know EVERYTHING there is to know about sports, but I know enough to tell you that every sport I know of that has a championship type of game, figures out home field advantage by way of one of the teams did something a little bit better than the other team. They WIN home field advantage by the regular season or playoff season performance, NOT by tossing a coin. GAH!

I don't like the title of My Blog

You know, sometimes you just don't think it all the way through. Or possibly sometimes you just wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Seriously. We have have a cyclical life. Things come and go and then seem to come back around again. We have good days and bad days. We whine and complain one day and the next day we are higher than a kite happy that everything is right in our world. I think most people are like this, I can't be the only one! For the most part, I am the glass is half full girl and happy. I have few dark days comparatively. But for some reason, I am tired of them. I don't want them! I want them to go away. I want them to realize that they don't serve much purpose for me now, except to distract from what I really need to accomplish and what I really need to make sure that I am doing with my life. On Twitter I follow a few sports figures, mainly as a voyer, just to get a glimpse how someone else lives their life, how someone who is motivated to accomplish things, lives their life. Mike Martin is one that I follow and I think he is an amazing young man that has already made a positive impact on this world even before he graduates from college! Today he tweeted this story http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/1oyqsB/www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gc4HGQHgeFE    It actually is an amazing story to help you realize that whatever you have been given in life to work with.......truly is enough!

YAY Me!

I actually READ research articles last night! I get so excited when I read research articles that I need for my dissertation because the topic is exciting to me and I SOOO want to write this research and defend it. My head has been out of it and so I am excited that I read some and that is only going to get my head back into it. Cheers!

Isolation

*warning, some girl whine may present itself*

Traveling for your job can be very isolating. You leave on Monday morning and return on Friday evening and on the weekend, wash, reorganize and hope to see your significant other for a little bit. In some respects I totally enjoy it. But during the week, when you are all alone and looking for some connection.........you post on a blog, or send out a tweet, or post something on facebook and you realize that no one cares (yes, that really sounds selfish and "whiny") It is simply a desire to connect. Facebook is more realistic.....at least that is suppose to be your friends. Blogs and twitter.....well.....those are really just strangers so that shouldn't bother me.

I think what really is bothering me is the disconnect I feel with my husband while on the road and the fact that I am not getting my school work done like I had hoped for.

Sorry if you came to read  my site today.......I just needed to say a few things........but in reality........I know that no one is reading this....so.....I guess I don't need to apologize to anyone! :) K. Laters.
