Soooooooo I got into Santa Clara University :DDD !!!! I've been accepted to their Leavey School of Business, which is really renowned and respected. So excited!!!
and I've received a pretty decent scholarship too, $21,000 per year. that might seem like a lot but SCU's costs add up to about 50k a year, yea pretty damn expensive haha so essentially I need that much to even attend manageably
I think I'm going to enroll. I'm applying to a couple other places but I'm just so pumped about SCU and idk, just being on my own in a different state for a while. I've lived in Portland my whole life. and being closer to my boy is an added bonus :)
Gonna go to Target soon and hunt down that super cute Rodarte for Target bikini!
it's been so cold lately, I want to go hottubbing so I can be warm and actually wear my new swimsuits somewhere haha anyone know anywhere good to go hot tubbing?

AAAAaaah fuuuuuckk I'm going to piss myself I'm so excited. Ok. so there's like an 80% chance of Taylor and I getting VIP backstage passes at Lady Gaga this march. Apparently Taylor's little sister's friend Beeja's mom has a friend who works at Wonder Ballroom and is like a manager or something. This friend has the hots for Beeja's mom and does pretty much whatever she says. They've already given VIP passes and tickets to Beeja's mom and she says she can most likely do the same for us(!!!) I can't get my hopes up too much because it *might* not happen, but it would be AMAZING if it did.
AND my mom says she'll get me a new dance practice outfit. :D I think I'm gettingggg
shrug, legwarmers, leotard, and knit shorts
I think legwarmers typically look tacky but in dance studios, they're super cute and actually serve the purpose of helping you not pull muscles
I think I want the shorts in the magenta pink x blue stripes, what do you think? w/pink, white, or light blue legwarmers

...was shatty. I didn't even go outside. I don't know what happened to Brittney. I think she died, personally. We were supposed to hang out on the snow day, but she disappeared. She hasn't dressed her poupee, which means she's either super busy or dead.
Oh well at least I got some work done.
I always feel so sleepy and lazy in the winter. I seriously feel like going to bed at 5. It's just so dark. It's like my body's telling me to hibernate. I can't even contemplate staying up past 10. does this happen to anyone else?
and East Portland Public Schools are open tommorrow which = standing in 18 degrees waiting for city buses which are probably delayed. It's so stupid because all schools west of the willamette have a snow day tomorrow. I went to an Xmas party in the west hills yesterday and even way up there they have the same amount of snow as I have at my house. More snow weds + thurs though! hurrah!
My grandma is coming from Michigan for the holidays. She rides a motorcycle. Yeah, really I shit you not. Pretty much the best grandma ever.
To cheer myself up from a below average day, I bought myself a Christmas present:
lavender, fuck yeah

It's my birthdaaay tomorrow! Holy shit it snuck up on me so fast. I'm just kind of dazed. I wish I could be as excited about birthdays as I was when I was a little kid. I've just been taking a lot of difficult classes and I've been so preoccupied with those that I don't even know if I have TIME for a birthday.
Whatever, fuck it. I'll make it fit! >=) I think i'll have 2 parties. A big karaoke one for everyone who wants to go to that/likes karaoke and a smaller sleepover/movie/maybe arcade one for my super best friends/shy friends who hate karaoke. I just want people to feel comfortable but I want to do karaoke as well. I think it will work well this way.
Time to go back to trying to write an analytic essay on House of the Spirits

Bad news: I lost one of my red shoe clips at kumoricon
Good news: Qcute happens to have a pair to sell to me for 10 bucks. Hooray!
Bad News: The white heart buckles shoes I purchased were too small.
Good news: BABY is rereleasing, so it's all good. I can get an LL. =) and i also have a buyer for the too small ones.
Bad News: That dumb mistake I made on paypal cost me $18 in fees because it confused the bank. D: oh well, lesson learned I suppose. I will check my funding source next time.
Good News: That package I got was muthafurking worth it. Mmmm so many goodies!
Good news: I'll be wearing lolita on a regular basis from now on. Life's too short to wear boring clothes!
Good news: I got lots of chances to meet new people and get to know some friends better at kumoricon. There were some funny moments. xD

okay, I made a dumb mistake on paypal so I need to know from those of you who know paypal well:
WILL PAYPAL OVERDRAW YOUR BANK ACCOUNT IF THERE AREN'T SUFFICIENT FUNDS?
I am freaking out because I just paid for my order and I was a stupid little cunt and didn't change the secondary funding source to credit card instead of my bank account.
Now i KNOW there wasn't enough in my bank account to pay for my order. Not by a mile as I haven't deposited my paychecks yet.
They say that if there's not enough in your bank account, it will go to credit card. HOWEVER i looked at my payment details and it doesn't say anything about $$ coming from a credit card. just $617: bank account. DD:
fuuuucccck i know i don't have that much in my bank account...but paypal SAYS it will default to credit card so...idk?

I've been thinking a lot recently about using a different shopping service other than Mai.
In my most recent order, the total ended up being about $500 BEFORE the fees were added and afterwards, they were over $600. So that's about $100 worth of shopping service fees. Which, idk just seems like a shit ton to pay someone for...clicking buttons. idk maybe it's harder than it seems, but i teach kids how to swim which can be a HUGE challenge at times and I get paid $9/hour for it. THAT'S hard work. I can't imagine shopping would be harder unless you're getting like, lucky packs for someone in which case you pretty much have to battle people, i've heard.
Also, she put 20% fees on my international shipping. In the past she takes the 20% and THEN adds the shipping. It just seems kind of silly to me to pay for shipping and then pay 20% MORE for shipping o_o
so i'm thinking of using prettygraffiti next time. At least if i have a huge-ass order. I don't want to be paying another hundred for fees.

Cuuuute nail salon
I was down by the waterfront today and I passed by this nail shophttp://www.pinkandwhitenails.com/
it's soooooo adorable inside *__* omg i'm so jealous of their chandalier(s) and everything is pink and cute!
i want to go there and get my nails done sometime. I wonder if they do good work?
I've never gone somewhere and gotten a manicure/pedicure in my life! If i can find good reviews perhaps i'll get my mom to take me there for my birthday...i just don't want to like, get an appointment there and then the staff are snobby/it's overpriced/etc.
but at the very least, it's damn cute.

Mai, you silly! xD
This made me lol
Thanks for your message
I checked, and now all your items arrived
I will send your invoice this weekend since I have to go out side today
Have a nice day
...you have to....go outside. xDD How vague. Mai is definitely suspicious.
She probably sits inside all week bidding on things so she has to take a day to go outside and... air out or something...
i'm excited to get my stuff though! :3

auuugh why has it been so abominably HOT in Portland?
I swear i've single handedly eaten 2 gallons of ice cream in the past 3 days. I hadn't noticed the heat too much until today because I spent most of the week in a pool (not having much fun though, working -_-) but JESUS freakin 100 degrees what is this shit?
thank goodness it is supposed to get cooler. 80 degrees is fine, thank you very much
when it's this hot i just feel so sluggish. All I do is sit around eating and reading celebrity magazines and going on the internet. it's like my brain shuts down.

Oh my jesus!
;_; oh no they didn't. In lavender too? This is obviously a horrible joke that btssb is playing on me...for i just ordered a bunch of things with Mai D: All my money is gone, damn you BABY, and you decide to reproduce the pockets jsk in cool colors! The cream is still my favorite, followed by lavender.

lol I'm a ditz...
So I'm working at a different pool now :D Montavilla sucks and i got tired of them.
Only problem is, there's no shallow end, so we have to put these platforms in the pool for the little short kids to stand on. It's really obnoxious, because they always end up falling off xD
Anyways, after my shift I was asked to get out the lane lines and set them up for lap swim. You know, those blue x white things that separate the swimming lanes.
So i swim down with a line to the place where they hook in. And, try as i might, I could not stretch the hook on the lane line to the ring it clips to.
I tried for like, 10 minutes, but it just seemed to short.
Finally, some lifeguard walks by, stops, stares, and raises his eyebrows and after a little while, i'm just like "eehh...Help? D:" And he gave me this funny look like "god, what a retard" and said "Um...okay?" and goes over and clips the thing in in about 2 seconds.
Me: "Durrr...what's the trick?"
Him (exasperated): "You have to get OUT of the pool and pull. You were using your triceps. You need to use your biceps."
um...duh? is this common knowledge? i don't really have biceps to use anyways haha seriously, i have
SO much trouble with mechanical things. It's terrible. Like dumb things like opening/closing gates and latches and locks and even opening bottles lol i just go "HOW DOES IT WORK???"
Anyone else have tales of ineptness? xD

lol yeah I do jazz dance...and last night we had this show where my class did our routine to Fergie's 'Here I come'
We got to wear this super gangster bright orange South Pole shirt. haha it made me feel so ghetto. But it has a crown on it and rhinestones so it's actually kind of cute.
It went pretty well. I didn't screw up HOWEVER the idiotic stage director who looks like 80's trailer trash put this fat chick in our class who only shows up for practice half the time and didn't know the routine for shit, in the front. Sooo =/ I was pretty pissed at that seeing as how I knew the routine and could do it well and had been to every single practice. Aaaand of course, not only did her largeness partially obscure me from view, she also messed up pretty bad, like she did this kick leap thing too early and went thr wrong way at one point. But whatever. I don't really care anymore. I can always be in front next time~( DON'T MESS CUZ AINT NOBODY ROCK IT LIKE THISSSSCollapse )

I'M A FREE WO-MAAAAAN
lol yeah, I don't have to work this week because hardly anyone signed up for lessons this week due to the LEAK IN THE POOL lolololol and also because it's forcasted to be like 60 degrees and raining for the rest of the week soooo i'm pretty glad i wasn't one of the ones chosen to teach the few lessons there are~ it wouldn't be worth it.
Meanwhile, I'm going to try to be productive (whatever that means) and get some summer reading done, open up art commissions, and enjoy summer! =D Anyone want to hang out? I feel the need to socialiiiize
I've been wearing lolita on a regular basis actually, which is pretty neat. It's fun to finally wear these clothes that I've put so much energy into obtaining x_x I just felt that I couldn't wear it until i had enough to maintain a consistant style without being boring. The funny thing is, I just seem to be sticking to like, the first ten items I bought xD it's like it takes 6 months to sink in that I actually own these items!
Going to the beach next week~ I've discovered skim-boarding, which is super fun! And you only have to get your feet wet! =D Perfect for chilly OR coast. you do fall on your butt a lot which kind of sucks
Anyways, here's my daily_lolita post in case anyone missed it: Daily coordinate

Donde esta la Mai?
Jesus it's been so long since I've posted in my own journal xD whatever, it's my journal. I can do what I want nyananyananya
Anyways, life's been pretty decent lately. School's almost out and I'm getting ready to go back to my exciting career of teaching screaming children how not to drown. wheeeeee! Then it's off to the beach and then MEXICO *_* I've never been out of US/Canada before so it should be fun. I'm excited!!! but kind of scared. I super don't want to get mugged ;_;
My friend Kimberly who I haven't seen in 3 years is here visiting. She moved to live with her mother in Louisiana and this is the first time she's been back. It's awesome! It's so weird though. 3 years ago we were the same height exactly. Now she seems so short! I guess I got taller but I don't feel like I have, ya know? I feel like a freakin giant. Maybe i am x) Haha she has a southern accent. it's weird but definitely cool seeing her again.
my little sister gets back this weekend from the EAST COAST. I missed the opportunity to go on that trip when I was in middle school. Boohoo. I kind of wish I had.
ANYWAYS! on to the important question Has anyone heard from Mai lately?
she told me she wasn't stopping her service for prior customers and she did my most recent order so...? idk it's been a couple days since I emailed her my auctions so I was just wondering...
