Subject:Over it!
Time:7:45 pm.
Mood: nerdy.

I'm over my little sulk from the other day.
I'm still upset over what happened, but as they say life goes on.

It's all set for me to move into Mel's place.
I'm very much looking forward to this.

Darren Hayes with cathcath was wonderful.
She's right though, we don't see enough of each other.
At least with working a lot closer to where she lives means
I'll be able to see her a bit more! Hurrah!

"Ever since you've been gone
The lights go out the same
The only difference is
You call another name"


Fuck, I love that song.
Fuck, I love all their songs,
as well as all of Darren's songs.

One thing that has been on my mind today at work though.
I've found over the last few weeks that Live Journal has become
a bit of a "fight club".

I'm upset that even I have been participating it, and that's
why of late, I've only been posting really how I feel and not
a generalization of what has been going on in my life.

I'm going to try and stop being so stupid and learn how to control my
actions. I think I need to learn how not to be co-dependant and
always depend on "that guy" to be there. I actually think I need
to learn to grow up.

Subject:Important
Time:7:27 pm.

I know I promised myself I wasn't going to post junk on here anymore, I think this needs to be read and spread around.

Through A Rapist's Eyes

A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:

The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle. They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun, braid or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.

The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women who's clothing is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors around to cut clothing. They also look for women on their cell phone, searching through their purse or doing other activities while walking because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.

The time of day men are most likely to attack and rape a woman is in the early morning, between 5 and 8:30 a.m. The number one place women are abducted from/attacked at is grocery store parking lots. Number two is office parking lots/garages. Number three is
public restrooms. The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to a second location where they don't have to worry about getting caught.

Only 2% said they carried weapons because rape carries a 3-5 year sentence but rape with a weapon is 15-20 years. If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn't worth it because it will be time-consuming. These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas, or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands. Keys are not a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon. So, the idea is to convince these guys you're not worth it.

Several defense mechanisms he taught us are: If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk, I can't believe it is so cold out here, we're in for a bad winter. Now you've seen their face and could identify them in a line-up, you lose appeal as a target.

If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell Stop or Stay back! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they'd leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking for an EASY target. If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes,) yelling I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent. If someone grabs you, you can't beat them with strength but you can by outsmarting them. If you are grabbed around the waist from
behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow and armpit or in the upper inner thigh - HARD. One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke
through the skin and tore out muscle strands - the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it hurts.

After the initial hit, always go for the groin. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy's parts it is extremely painful. You might think that you'll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause a lot of trouble. Start causing trouble, and he's out of there.

When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible. The instructor did it to me without using much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked audibly.

Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don't dismiss it, go with your instincts. You may feel a little silly at the time, but you'd feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.

Subject:Happy Girl!
Time:5:52 pm.
Mood: lazy.

Very hungover ... Not good.

I wasn't going to go out last night. I just wasn't in the mood. I'm so glad I did.

One good thing I remember was "I think I have to get you drunk more often, cos you are cool when you are drunk" It was just so cute! I love being drunk because I can say what I want, and be myself and it doesn't hurt.

I was happy cos I could admit that I was being a bitch, and I apologized. It's true. I was being a bitch.

I've been in my pyjamas all day, and now I just feel lazy. I've spoken to everyone, and I'm in a grand old mood!

I'm happy because I have lots of choices of what to do tonight, go cruising with friends or party with other friends and potential hottie (who I promised I would be happy, smiley, friendly girl with and let him make the first move if he wanted to do anything).

I'm happy because I'm me, and everyone loves it!

I <3 <3 Tim Freedman and The Whitlams. Their music is a girl's best friend...

Subject:Mixed Bag
Time:8:25 pm.
Mood: irritated.

Just because she has a better car, does that make her a better person?

Just because she has a serious boyfriend, does that make her a better person?

Just because she everyone looks at her in the clubs, does that make her a better person?

She makes me feel inferior, little, small.

All the things I never wanted to be.

Mood: ecstatic.

Something amazing happened today.

I went to a job interview at lunch and two hours later I had the job.

"Dear Jade,

We are delighted to confirm our offer of employment to join Orient Capital in the role of Assistant Shareholder Analyst...."

Assistant Shareholder Analyst - That kicks some serious ass.

I'm resigning tommorrow. I can't wait to see Beth's face when I tell her I'm leaving on Friday.

I might go and visit my parents for a week. I think they would like to see me.

Subject:My weekend
Time:9:05 pm.
Mood: giggly.


"Come, come, come into my world
Won't you lift me up, up, high upon your love"


I love this song. It's been on repeat pretty much all day, except for now, because I've put Avril Lavigne back on. She rocks too.

I had a decent weekend, or at least what part of it I haven't already described on here. Last night, Mel and I went to Gill's (pornoangel) 21st. We mainly went to see old friends, ended up turning into a bitching session. Ended up being bored out of our brains after a while, so went to another friend's house, actually the guy we are moving in with, as his parents were out of town, just sat around and talked for the rest of the night, until I had to take Mel home. I ended up going back to our friend's house by myself, to have a few more drinks and hang out with the group that had congregated there. They were all drunk, and their idea of fun was to start a big fire and throw spray paint cans in there to make it go BOOM! I kinda got bored of that quickly and ended up in my friends room, talking to him about all types of things. Turns out he knows my ex-fionce, through Laser Zone of all things, which was pretty freaky. The group left around 4am, which left us two, another couple and a single guy. The 3 others slept in another bed, whilst we continued to talk. I looked up after what seemed like maybe an hour of talking to find it was 6:40 am, and the sun was shining bright outside. I love nights like those, where you can talk and have fun and the time just flies. I remember nights like that with markbucci and I can't remember the last time I felt so comfortable talking to someone about things that have happened to me.

I need sleep! I didn't end up going to bed because I know I wouldn't have slept at all tonight, and I need to get my sleep patterns back into a normal habit, after all this time off work. I'm glad things are getting back to normal, and my flu is starting to go away finally.

Subject:Fall for you
Time:11:22 pm.
Mood: pessimistic.

God damn, this song is so relevant at the moment:

"I'll fall for you
When I get on and shake my pride
I'll call on you
We can do better than I am tonight

Be strong and you'll get strength back
Feed the fire and you'll get warmth back

I'm walking the plank, edging out, see the drop
If I take a new step will you follow or stop?
I look back from the ocean beneath to your eyes
Are we in it together now?"

Subject:What's my Soul Type?
Time:12:28 pm.

From here:
You are the most in touch with knowledge. It's the tree of life from which you tap the sap. You know what you want and you know how to reasonably get it.

Virtues: You respect people with plans. When someone has their head on their shoulders, you know that they can see straightforward and keep their eyes on the mark. When it comes to looking at the future, you take a logical approach: what's within your ability? A fortunate attribute that you have is the ability to set a goal for yourself, higher than maybe you feel possible, but still keep yourself within reasonable bounds. You take the time to appreciate those surrounding you and they do appreciate you in return. Decision-making comes naturally to you when you take the time to consider each option. People only come to talk to you when they are looking for a logical, reasonable solution.

Aspirations: You have an idea of what you can do with your life, but you push it up a notch. You need a profession that you can enjoy, so work towards it. You want to live near your friends and family while being as far away as possible. You also want to settle down while working in excitement and variation.

Quirks: You don't appreciate drama queens and they don't appreciate you. When they need help, they won't seek you out because of your ability to see through their overly dramatic predicaments. You have leeway for humor, and sometimes love to participate in it, but when it becomes irrational behavior, others can count you out. Loud noises are bothersome, except when they come from you or your friends.

Factors: Reach for the sky! Don't decide to do something because you're merely good at it, but choose something you might like to do, despite whether you're sure you can master it or not. Don't only save room for a few empathetic friends, but open up to everyone.

Future: When looking for a job, if you work in all of your talents (logic, decision-making, planning, and definitely humor), you'll find yourself happy. Come to a compromise for location; live nearby your friends and take periodic vacations or live farther away and take frequent return trips.

Subject:What Music Genre am I?
Time:6:51 pm.

From here:

I'm Hip-Hop! Two liters of attitude in a one liter bottle. You are hip-hop music, a genre commonly associated with black people. Your main themes are sex, alcohol, violence, and a lot of profanity. You are very confident of yourself, especially when around your crew, and you take on an intimidating persona to boost your self-confidence. Though your general manner can sometimes scream "fuck off" you can be a sweet person underneath it. So long as your crew doesn't know that.
