*yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn*

And another conference is done. I'd have to say it was the WIERDEST confernce with behind the scenes stuff going on. Ack. The bird, the burnt carpet, all the sickies, and a whole lot I can't remember.

And I'm exhausted.

Wow. Life is INSANE. I'm sick of work. Yet I love it - how ironic. As tired and whiny as I am, I'm having a great week. Today in particular - I saw so many people that I love dearly and haven't seen in ages - Will, Kristi, Anne, Br. Paul, Colleen, etc etc etc. Ahh good times. OH. and today I got a RADIO. Bwahahahahaha. Radios. ^_^ I find them incredibly amusing. <3

I'm exhausted.

We had girl time last night. We watched one of my personal current favorites (Joe, you HAVE to watch this one!) - First Daughter. <33333 yeaaah. Anyways. I also watched Fiddler on the Roof recently. <3 oh memories!Anyway, as of last night, my hair is semi-red. ^_^ Oh good times. At least it worked this time - my attempt at hot pink last night was less than succesful.

I can't wait until next fall. so many many good times. I wish clayton was coming here. :( Oh well...yeah I'm happy. At peace. God is good.

Ok so basically I had to post this. I really couldn't not post it... just some encouragement for if you're feeling like God doesn't notice you or doesn't care.
So I'm going on this 12 day retreat put on by NET in Minnesota this summer.. and its gonna cost me between 600-1000 dollars... what with work missed and all that. And I've been getting crap from the parents about that and how I need to save for college next semester, etc. etc. Well I really felt like I needed to go, so I sent in my deposit and bought my plane ticket. (almost $400 right there.) And then I just offered to to Jesus and asked him to take care of it for me, cause he's good at that....and I prayed a rosary to get my mum to help me out a bit too. So today, I get home from my University Day. And there's a letter waiting for me telling me I was picked for a $1000 dollar scholarship to FUS. So basically 2 days after I asked, God provided. Isn't he awesome? PRAISE HIM!

Hannah was right.. I don't like boys. I just am very interested in them for about a week and a half, after which I move on. The sad thing is that that amuses me more than it concerns me. No matter.. I'm not really ready for a relationship anyways. (Um.... did I just say what I think I said? Omi... uh. That was my alter-ego... yeah.)

24 reaaaaaaaly makes me think. About life and morality and when certain stuff would apply. You should watch the 3rd season for that reason. Well... all of it really. I'm kinda a junkie.

So basically as previously mentioned in earlier entries, life is insane! I got offered yet another job - "Dr Scott's" secretary's office assistant. Basically I pack books, fill book orders, and do lower-than-secretary-ish stuff. But its a SWOP, so I'll pay off my SWOP financial aid thing faster.. and get more money, while still working for Dave. So cheers!

I'm currently getting ready for my University Day... which involves making a list of the classes I don't want and those that I do want for my advisors. Oh the joys of a double major - 2 adivsors. But I can't wait for college. Its gonna be a blast! :D

So basically the whole point of these last couple weeks is just to let go and let God. Seriously.. I'm so silly. I think I can do it all on my own... I can't. Only God can.. if I let Him. I did. He's so amazing.

Sorry in andvane for typos - fake nails do that to your typing abilities. But I <3 them regardless.

So basically life is awesome. Sharp contrast to the last post in which life sucked. But seriously!

For starters, I'm going to North Carolina on Sunday with Amy and Anne to drop Erin off.. then coming back the same day. But cheers to that! Get to get out of Steubie.
Yesterday, ame, hannah, anne and I went shopping in Robinson. We didn't really buy much because we didn't have a lot of time, but it was fun to hang with some of my chicas and just talk. I got to share all my exciting news.

Oh! on Wednsday was conference training. before that I went to see Mrs. Weiss...and she was in the middle of a photo shoot w/ Fr. Terry and some other people for a promo ad. So I got to jump in. It was a blast! So look for me in upcoming school ads/brochures and stuff. ^_^ And I found out that I'll be working a lot more hours than I thought.

I got a call from NET the other day, basically saying that they can tranfer my references from NET to DEP so I don't have to do those anymore... and I get $125 off, since I already went on an interview weekend, and that there's hardly no chance that I won't get accepted for DEP. So looks like I'll be going to Minnesota in July. ^_^ Cheeeeeeeeeeeerss! First time "west"... lol.

And I get a ton of financial aid.. so I only have to pay like $3000 a year to go to college. I'm psyched. And now I'm going to go watch Pride and Prejudice

The only thing I can complain about is that the tire on my car keeps going flat. X_X And it needs to be replaced.

But I'm going shopping tomorrow, so its all cool!

It really annoys me when people forget to log out. So far, I've logged out of people's email accounts, facebook accounts, and now LJ account.. all in about five minutes. Yeah. If I wasn't such a nice person I could have done some fuuuuuuuuuuun stuff to them! But I couldn't.

Don't you just LOVE ADHD blinkers? If you've ever seen them, you know what I mean. The blinkers on cars that go about a million blinks a minute. ADHD blinkers

Well I just turned down Shawn and Margaret's offer of FUSA treasurer. I just couldn't do it. I'd really really love to.. .c'mon - treasurer as a freshman? Who's ever done that before? But I already have 3 jobs for next semster, plus social life, household(hopefully!), school, sleeping and eating, and stuff like that.. I know I wouldn't be able to keep up with adding another job on top of that. So I told Shawn no. Aaaah. I really wanted to! Cause it would clearly make me that much cooler.

I ate lunch with Lauren Phillips today. :D I'm glad she's back.

Well... I'm now officially gradjimated. Whee? Ahh. So the mass was super-stressfull. Cause I was losing my voice fast....... and there for OD'd on fisherman friends and gargled lemonade like it was my job. (And paid for it dearly.. as of this morning, I sound like a mix between a frog and a guy. Voice went bye-bye!) Although the singing part went well, so I was told. BUT! Colin and Jacob forgot to take up the gifts.. I had a near panic attack over the petitions because I didn't know who was doing it and if we'd ever written them. (We had.) And during the diploma-hand-out-ceremony... Jonathan forgot to read Francesaca's name, and somehow I forgot to put Catherine on the list. So.. uhm.. I had to walk over there and inform him. (Awkward!) And the boys all had their tassels on the wrong side.. which was funnier than it was stressful.

But the party was awesome... until the dance started. Leanne came... and Maris and MariJo (they were at mass too! Cheeeeeeeers!) and of course Bobby was with them. The slideshow was awesome :D. But as I said. the dance. SUCKED. We used the same music from prom, just shortened and switched around. The hall didn't have a CD player in their sound system, so we put a mike in front of our CD player... and that was that. Then the adults kept turning it down cause they thought it was too loud, but in reality we dancers couldn't even hear it. And no one was really in the mood to dance. So we girls did our standard drag-guys-onto-the-dance-floor-to-dance-with-us thing. Although I didn't have issues with dancing with JB. *sigh* Very... long....story. *twitch* Well here we go, dejavu from 2 years ago. Yeah. But I have to say Bobby and Marijo, and Amy and Josh, and Maria and Jonathan, and John and Erin are so cute together. Oh lol.. and in closing, my brother Joe got paid $3 to slow dance with a girl. We got pictures. ^_^

Before I begin, i'd like to point out to Joe that this is exactly the 3rd week since I restarted my LJ. Does that make it not a phase anymore? :P

Anyways.So! I graduate in 2 days! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I don't care. At all. Feeley asked me today if I was worried/nervous about totally screwing up Blessed Be Your Name in front of the like 250-300 people that'll be there. And I'm really not. I don't care. I have my harmony down pat to like every song... and as long as I don't lose my voice and can still sing the Alleluia, I'm cool. The music will basically suck for the actual dance afterwards.. not that I care.

uh, so I had a rather bizarre experience today. I was talking to Tim online, and he asked to see the pics from prom. So, I sent him the link and he starts looking at them... telling me how hot I am/was....aaaaand. I don't appreciate being called hot. I'm not a french fry for goodness sake. Now if you want to tell me I look gorgeous or beautiful or something fine. But don't EVER EVER call me hot (unless, of course, I give you permission.) It really really annoys me. It just makes me sound more like body parts than a human being.

Good night.

Well! My life just took a REALLY interesting turn. I just got facebooked by the new FUSA VP......and she wants me to be the treasurer for FUSA next year. Uhm.. kinda wierd? I'm gonna be a freshman and FUSA treasurer? Hey it sounds sweet though. Although after last years totally (un)spiffy FUSA-ness, I'm not sure I wanna be associated with them. But it'll be different next year. So maybe. I don't know. Uhm.. thoughts?

Its still raining... this makes like day 6 of rain. I'm starting to not like it so much. Mud = not really fun. Well OK to be honest, I want to go mud rolling. But I don't want it to be raining when I graduate.

I decided that today, instead of giving you a play-by-play of what I did (as that would be boring - all I did was work, hitchike to mass, and work some more.)I'd talk about something else. Particularly the rain.

Where I work, there's a big window overlooking all of downtown and the river. For those of you that know this area, you know its generally not a pretty sight. But today as it was raining and foggy and the sun was shining through the clouds onto the river, making it dance, and the lights of the city were peering through the fog, it did look beautiful. I just wanted to sit there and stare at it... but I had to work. :( I wish I was a better poet... to capture that. Its happened once or twice before... and it still amazes me. God has given us such a beautiful world... and even the things we don't think are beautiful, he can still use nature to change it to make it beautiful.

So I pretty much just love adoration. Today I went there with my gang (go us taking over the West End Perpetual Adoration chapel!!!!!!!!!!!!) and I was just sittin there thinking about some stuff that I posted in I think my last entry.. .about the kids. And I know what to do now! Aah its gonna be hard. But I'm gonna take it to prayer some more and talk to Ame and John and some adults about it and see what happens. Man it just feels so right! It fits into everything thats been happening in my life! So now I know why I didn't make NET - thats a big thing. And I can start going towards my life's goal! *cheers* it was just one of those times when God was doing what I think He loves to do with me - whisper to my heart.

Afterwards we kidnapped Ame and Erin. ^_^ Bwahahaha

Some stuff I forgot [Sunday

[ mood | frustrated ]

One thing I didn't mention about prom - it gave me 2 really odd cravings. One is to go to the drive-in, simply because I love it and drove by it so much the day of prom. The other I got from listening to my beloved Wilshire that day - to go dancing under the stars... Yeah.

Ah. OK a rant now... because I need to. (even as I talk to tom about the very same thing.) So I was (and this I actually forgot until tonight when Mrs. Cutler reminded me.) a founding member of what we fondly call "Youth Prayer Meetings" basically its a lot of praise and worship, games and pizza and stuff for kids 10- senior in highschool. (So I'm gradjiminating from it now.) The whole problem with it is that, with the exception of three or four kids, and some of us older people, everyone just stands there like a rock, silent and unmoving. Now I realize that charismatic prayer isn't everyone's thing and thats OK. But I know a lot of these kids. And I know that they would sing and praise but they're holding back for some reason.. .I don't know why. Maybe they're scared of being a freak and un-cool. But aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah its just so hard, cause once upon a time that was me! I've been there and got to here! And I want to help them! They're the hope of the church! If their faith dies so does the Church! And I can't let that! They have to become strong Catholics! Basically.. this totally reaffirms why I'm going into youth ministry. Because, even here, the youth of the Church need as much help as they can get.

Well. Now on to prom. Before that though, here's the link to the pictures: http://franciscan.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2004607&l=127ee&id=144900869 (don't you just love facebook??)

So my issue with prom - main one being dates. It seems absolutely ridiculous that guys feel the need to take a girl if they barely know her. All (emphasis on ALL) of my friends had dates. Except me. Some of them are actually together, or kind-of-sort-of together, but then there's the awkward couples, like Colin and Anne. For goodness sake - Colin talked more to and danced more with me that he did with Anne. I felt horrid for her! And the next problem being that all my guys forgot about me and didn't really dance with me all night. At least I don't mind asking guys to dance. Also... a bunch of freshman followed me around all night complaining about the music - "Do you have *insert song name*" *begin whining* "Why nottttttttt. Why don't you have any *good* music?" Also.. in the other room was a public schools dance. Talk about awkward! They kept coming down the hall and peeking in on us. It was funny though - I walked by the room they were in, and absolutely NO ONE was dancing. Then in ours pretty much everyone was. (Even the wallflowers.)

But the good things with prom - the boys chipped in and bought all the senior girls flowers. Well.. most of the guys bought their dates flowers. Then I think as i was the only senior left, they bought me some too. But it was still cute. And I got third place in the freestyle competition (blame the movie Honey - its where I got my winning move.) and second in the swing-off. Bobby and his sister had some sweet moves... so he basically crushed everyone else!

I got to sing at Mass this morning - at FU... it was SO much FUN! Ahh I love singing. It makes me happy... which is why I feel so good right now. Except I think I lost my voice and I have to sing at a prayer meeting tonight. O_O Whee. OK loves! Later!
