Driving on Long Island April 11, 2006

Filed under: Happenings — daizey @ 10:56 pm

 For those of you on the rough roads of Long Island everyday and a reminder for those of you who no longer live there (or never did) but want to visit…..know the rules before getting behind the wheel:

Long Island Driving Rule

  1. A right-lane construction closure is just a game to see how many people can cut in line by passing you on the right as you sit in the left lane waiting for the same drivers to squeeze their way back in before hitting the orange construction barrels.
  2. Turn signals will give away your next move. A real Long Island driver never uses them. Use of them in Massapequa may be illegal.
  3. Under no circumstances should you leave a safe distance between you and the car in front of you, or the space will be filled in by somebody else putting you in an even more dangerous situation.
  4. Crossing two or more lanes in a single lane-change is considered “going with the flow.”
  5. The faster you drive through a red light, the smaller the chance you have of getting it!
  6. Never get in the way of an older car that needs extensive bodywork.
  7. Braking is to be done as hard and late as possible to ensure that your ABS kicks in, giving a nice, relaxing foot massage as the brake pedal pulsates. For those of you without ABS, it’s a chance to stretch your legs.
  8. Construction signs warn you about road closures immediately after you pass the last exit before the backup.
  9. Electronic traffic warning signs are not there to provide useful information. They are only there to make Long Island look high-tech, and to distract you from seeing the state police radar car parked on the median.
  10. Never pass on the left when you can pass on the right.
  11. Speed limits are arbitrary figures, given only as suggestions, and are apparently not enforceable during rush hour.
  12. Just because you’re in the left lane and have no room to speed up or move over doesn’t mean that a Long Island driver flashing his high beams behind you doesn’t think he can go faster in your spot.
  13. Always slow down and rubberneck when you see an accident, or even if someone is just changing a tire.
  14. Throwing litter on the roads adds color to the landscape and gives Adopt-a-Highway crews something to clean up.
  15. It is assumed that state police cars passing at high speed may be followed in the event you need to make up a few minutes on your way to work, or the beach.
  16. Learn to swerve abruptly. Long Island is the home of high-speed slalom driving thanks to potholes.
  17. It is traditional in Long Island to honk your horn at cars that don’t move the instant the light changes.
  18. Seeking eye contact with another driver revokes your right of way, except in Garden City where it acts as an invitation to duel or play chicken.
  19. Never take a green light at face value. Always look right and left before proceeding. In Long Island it is common to stop and then decide which direction to turn. 
  20. Remember that the goal of every Long Island driver is to get there first, by whatever means necessary.
  21. Real Long Island female drivers can put on pantyhose, apply eye makeup, and balance the checkbook at seventy-five miles per hour, during a snowstorm in bumper-to-bumper traffic.
  22. Real Long Island male drivers can take off pantyhose, unsnap a bra with one flick of their wrist at seventy-five miles per hour during a snowstorm in bumper-to-bumper traffic.
  23. Heavy snow, ice, fog, and rain are no reasons to change any of the previously listed rules. These weather conditions are God’s way of insuring a natural selection process for body shops, junkyards, and new vehicle sales.

It’s 6:12 am. The Morning of My LAST April 8, 2006

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous.However, there’s not much I can do. As I’ve learned this week, you really can’t study for this test. You either know it or you don’t. For anyone who’s not aware of what the LAST is-it’s a New York State teaching exam and it stands for Liberal arts and science test. How specific huh?

Bleh. Well if all else fails. I just won’t get my NYS teaching license. I’ll just get Ohio’s instead. I think that sounds like a winderful idea. In fact, I almsot wish I was doing just that in the first place!

We’ll see. Many of my friends passed it and if they can pas it I can too

 Right?

Wish me luck!

 
 

I am beginning to hate school! April 4, 2006

Filed under: Happenings — daizey @ 11:32 pm

Beginning? hahaha, I almsot believed that when I typed it.

 I just finished a 10 page paper for Western Civ. I hate that class. YUCK!

 I am now going to bed.

 Goodnight!

 
 

I’m on a quest!

Filed under: Happenings — daizey @ 12:11 pm

I am going to fit into my bkini by the time i go to Myrtle Beach! Why? Cause I bought it last year and wore it once. Also, its a really nice bathing suit! Another reason? I really need to stop being fat 😉

I’m quite proud of myself. Im coming up on 10 pounds of lost weight. WOOO HOOO! And here noone thought I could keep my new years resolutions (what were they again?)

I’m quite happy with the progress so far. And I still have a week and a half. lol. So far I’m not quite there. but only a few more pounds and I thnk I shold be able to do it!!

Last night I went to the gym and ran a mile. I biked a little too. here are my goals for running a mile:

  1. Not be completely red in the face by the time I’m done
  2. Not sweat out the entire bottle of water I drank while I was running it
  3. Not feel like Im going to fall over when I’m done
  4. Not be sore as hell the next morning
  5. Not be completely out of breath midway through
  6. Be able to want to run another mile when Im finished with the first
  7. Be able to get the mile under 10 minutes (at the bre minimum)

So in order to achieve these, Im going to run a mile each day. Yes even in Myrtle Beach. I don’t think it should be too much torture to get up and run on the beach each day do you??? 😀

I’m on another quest, to rock Biology. So far so good. Remember that 92? I beat it by 9 points on the next test. I got a 103!! A ONE HUDRED THREEEEE! I’ve never done that well on a science test before! Hell I don’t think I;ve ever done that well on any test before!!

I think these next few months are going to hold all sorts of changes for not jsut me, but my family too. My brother is coming to Old Westbury for a year before he transfers to OSU. Im excited about this! I get to spend a semester with him which should be cool! Also, som major things are going to be changing for my mom and dad and brother, and I am going to compeltely move to Ohio. Quite scary! But also exciting. More on the move later though. I have all sorts of things to say on it!

Well, I hsuld get going I supose. Ill try and psot again later. After I run my mile 🙂
