I'm Miserable Right Now

Usually when I have back pain, it's my lower back. Right now, I'm in pain, and it's all through my upper back, neck, and right arm. I can't stand it. I was like this all day yesterday, and I'm like this again this morning. I woke up thinking some of my back troubles were over, but within 10 minutes of moving around, I was feeling the same way I felt yesterday. I don't understand what I did. I slept on my stomach like I usually do, and I realize that can lead to back pains, but I haven't felt anything like this in a very long time.

I'm thinking of calling in to work and telling them I'm staying home. I am absolutely useless right now. It hurts to even type. I can't sleep comfortably, I can't sit comfortably, I can't do anything.

Hoops and Yoyo

A few weeks ago, I was shopping for cards. I came across a whole section of cards featuring these two characters named Hoops and Yoyo. Hoops is a pink cat, and Yoyo is a green bunny. I was listening to the audio that many of these cards had, and I laughed like crazy! I bought one to have around in case someone's birthday comes around and I want to give them a funny card. The card says "you are lookin' fine!" There's much more audio that goes with it.

Anyway, I did a search on Hoops and Yoyo and found they have an official website, hoopsandyoyo.com. Oh my gosh, this website has some hilarious stuff on it! There's a ton of animations on the website that you can watch. Some of the animations I recommend are:

- Brushing Your Teeth
- I Love You!
- Tie One On, Dad!
- Lookin' Fiiiine (audio from the card I bought)

There are many more too. I don't get into the business of endorsing websites, but the Hoops and Yoyo website is one I must! Whoever invented these characters is pure genius. They're obviously geared towards a younger audience, but the people at Hallmark clearly left the door open for an older audience to enjoy them too. So check out the website!

Duke Nukem's Trying to Get Work

I'm sure most everyone has heard the word going around about 3D Realms at this point. I found this on one of the message boards I frequent. I think it's hilarious! Click the picture to enlarge it.

Regardless what happens and what is or isn't true, Duke Nukem will live on forever (no pun intended!)

I Made It

I was really worried about possibly having to retake my Principles of Accounting II class. It was a hard class, and accounting is definitely not my strong point. I was worried all day long about what my grade would be. I knew it would either be a D or a C, and I need a C for the credits to count towards graduation.

I'm happy to be able to say that my spring semester is complete, with a C in the accounting class, and a B in my promotion class. My overall GPA stands at a 2.622. This is all good news because I have now completed all the credits I need for an associates degree in marketing! Now I just have to apply for graduation and take the exit exam.

I'll also have to begin seriously considering where I want to continue my education at. There are so many schools I have thought about, and I am not sure what would be best for me. My GPA will obviously limit some of my options, but I can accept that so long as it's high enough to give me at least some options.
