So my long lost camera has been in the back seat of my car this entire time. I had pictures of the San Diego Zoo in it. I went to upload them into my computer to find that I lost my adapter.
That pisses me off until tomorrow.

I'm trying to write a college essay for Temple, and for some reason, it's so hard.
The absolute worst subject I write about is myself.

"Please tell us more about yourself. Relate one or more experiences or circumstances that have contributed to your personal and/or academic development."

I'm trying to conduct something to do with how I moved from San Fransisco to San Diego to Phoenix to Mountain Top, but I can't think of a way that lead to my developement because I was so young. I'm trying to write about lessons I've learned in life, like why I believe one's search for answers is sometimes more important than the answers themselves. But I don't know why I think the way I do.

I'm trying to bullshit my way through, but I can't think of a starting point. If someone would like to give me an idea, I will love you a lot.

-That my ears have been popping all day long for no known reason
-Having money put away, but basically being broke for the time being
-Working with this girl who is like, 19...and my manager told her to "supervise these people" as in make sure everyone is doing their job yesterday. She misunderstood him and thought she became the supervisor for hardlines replenishment and was so power charged the whole day. It was so annoying
-Not having the time/money to dye my hair all one color (for some reason the brown keeps fading to blonde)
-Not having a camera
-Being so far away from the two people who i care about/care about me the most right now
-Not having anything to do for the next hour or so
-I'll be set back a good $3-400 because I'm fucking stupid.
-"Combat Baby" has been stuck in my head for DAYS.
-My time is pretty much free until October 25, but gas is going to be $5

I wonder if I can make it to see the Decemberists...hmm.

-People STILL saying "Alex?...Little Alex? No way! Wow! That's like a stick of dynamite!"...HA HA HA. I won.
-This really amazing floral skirt I found at Salvation Army that I will be wearing TOMORROW.
-This Target Coupon Flip Book
-The weather we're having
-This Project I'm about to do with Hayley as soon as I have $70 extra. (everyone in need of a phone interview, i have not forgotten about it, just hold on a few more days!!)

I feel like going to Kirby Park and rolling down that big hill. I can make a really cheap date out of it if I wanted to.

Speaking of which, the weirdest thing is going on. Today and Yesterday, FOUR boys who I used to "hang out" with called/texted/aim'ed me, all asking if I want to hang out with them, and be their friends cause they miss me.. It's the weirdest thing, because the most recent person I have spoken to is Pete, and that was back in...Oh gosh...April?
It's weird cause it's all at once, and it's all so RANDOM. I almost think they're all connected to each other, but I was never with any of them for it to actually even matter, nor do they have any way what so ever to know each other. (These people range from Scranton to Hazleton to bumble-fuck area of Nanticoke to I don't even remember where the third one is from...I think it's another bumble fuck Nanticoke....YEAH it was I remember they were friends in like, 1st grade)

The one made me feel REALLY uncomfortable, he called me at 3 a.m. last night and said seriously in one breath "HI I MISS YOU DO YOU WANT TO HANG OUT?" I said "not really" "I WAS A DICK TO YOU I KNOW I'M SORRY JUST ONE MORE CHANCE" and I said "Why do you care? I havn't talked to you in like, 8 months?" "BECAUSE YOU'RE AN AMAZING PERSON AND I WANT TO GET TO KNOW YOU BETTER" and I said "We hung out three times?"...that was seriously word for word conversation..and then he let me go and told me to call if I changed my mind....but I do admit that it was an extreme satisfaction, because he was a big douche.

Hayley and I decided to combine research projects.


If you have a decent amount of knowledge on abortion, we would like to hear your thoughts on the subject.
But keep in mind that half of the project is on respecting the right. If you are anti-choice, please don't waste your time preaching. We are both well aware of the arguments for both sides, you would be wasting your time. This is a private journal, try to do your damage at abortiondebate.

We want to hear your ideas on preventing unintended pregnancies (and thus leading to abortion).
(the idea of abstinence will be introduced, but not emphasized).

If you feel strongly about "respecting the right and reducing the need", or better yet you have a personal experience with abortion, we would like to feature you in our interview. If you live near Wilkes-Barre, the interview will be filmed, if not, we would like to set up a phone interview with you.

So if you are willing to make a contribution to our project, you may leave a comment here or email us at respecttherightreducetheneed@gmail.com

I'm mainly asking for contributions on livejournal, because I have found that browsing through communities is one of the best ways to gain insight on controversial issues.

this was directed to a particular person, and i'm positive she'll know it's to her once she sees it. it's here because she's wondering why people don't like her because she thinks she has the right to harass whoever she wants.

the past two days have been oriented around ending drama. one large dispute completely ended (at least as far as i'm concerned), and because of what happened i am now on civil terms with several people who i have not gotten along with since my sophmore year. also, i talked to this boy on aim (yes, internet drama, but there's no other way i can get in touch with him) about how he told a certain someone that i'm a psycho bitch and all this shit. he ended up avoiding confessing to anything at all and instead he told me i'm entitled to hate him and i deserve to call him out. he was being nice about it, telling me he wants to be civil. god damn, you're not so civil when i'm not around. Seriously Wilkes-Barre. Stop being fake, and stop orienting your time to drama.

The plus is I'm trying to think of who I know have a serious problem with. Nobody comes to mind. This is the first time it has been like this in YEARS.

Once again, I love Jess Tokach. And Hayley. And Emily Willis, Mike, Maher, Kristin, Tiff Stacy (for the wine), Tash, everyone else who comes to mind is going to feel left out but god damn there's so many. I fucking love my life.

i found this link on burned_rose's page

Mice infected with bubonic plague missing

We're all going to die....if not from mice, apparently from Red Bull. I listened to a speaker anti-redbull today. I learned that it's full of hornet saliva and it's just a matter of time before a death occurs from it. Wow. Has anyone even HEARD of someone die of redbull?

I really love Hayley and I love Jess Tokach and I love all of my hoez.

Look how asian I look in this picture:Collapse )

I visited Joe all weekend. We went to a market with free samples of fruit, and I had my first fig. The burly black man supervising the stand walked me through eating the fig. When I bit into it he sang YUM YUM YUM YUMMMM! and it made me really happy.
I would say I had a rather good time. My back hurts a lot because Joe kicked my butt. Fighting him could be the cause of the large bruise on my elbow. It could also have came from slipping on grind soap and falling on a curb or Joe's mo-ped slipping on an oil spot and tipping over.
Brett (from Harvey's lake) drove me there. I took a Martz bus home. It's such a small world. I sat next to a boy named Zack Brown. He graduated from my school in 2004. He gave me a ride home, and here I am.

I'm tired, ache, bored, and have a really strong craving for tofu chicken pattys.

I got my fist paycheck today. I'm paid weekly, so normally a $90 check would be nice...but it came to $22 after tax.
I felt so bad for my mom. She got a 33 cent paycheck, and I felt so bad for being bummed about my paycheck. She did the sweetest thing for me too. She put $30 and a Green Apple Jones Soda in my locker. I gave her a big hug when I got home.

But yeah, $52 was taken out for this new "right to work tax". Apparently in Pennsylvania, it's a privilege to work in a city. I don't want to imagine what Philadelphia charges, because Wilkes-Barre is hardly a city.

But some one blew their budget, so they decided to charge everyone who works in Wilkes-Barre $52 a year. I don't think it's fair to charge me, who makes $7 an hour the same as someone who makes $20 an hour, because to them $52 is a tree in the forest.
I'm also amused that the city figured it's ok to charge this tax. If I were in charge of a budget, and I blew it, I couldn't charge the customer more. I'd be fired.

There are a lot of aspects of this right to work tax that puzzle me.

Al Capone had the philosophy of "you wanna work for me, you gotta pay". Well, the mobsters were locked away for extortion. I don't see a difference between the right to work tax and extortion.

Another thing, I live in Mountain Top. Not Wilkes-Barre. I do not represent Wilkes-Barre. This one time, there was a party in Boston. They threw tea off the docks because of "NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION."

But on a complete different side note, It is true that you learn something every day.

I learned about the sunfish AKA the Mola.

It is very interesting.

Sunfishes are found in all oceans in tropical and temperate climes, but prefer open ocean. They are adapted for life as a sluggish, pelagic predators of jellyfish or other larger invertebrates that come close enough to be sucked in. Probably they inhabit the mesopelagic zone down to about 1000 meters, but live most commonly about 300m deep.

Mola mola eat a variety of foods, but mostly gelatinous zooplankton (jellyfish and salps) as well as squid, sponges, serpent star, eel grass, crustaceans, small fishes and deepwater eel larvae. Molas forage both at the surface, among floating weeds, on the sea floor and in deep water. They are well adapted to eat jellyfish because their thick skin provides armor against the stinging barbs. Ocean sunfish render their prey into bite-size pieces before ingesting the morsels by sucking in their prey and spitting it out again. They have long, claw-like teeth in their throat.
Molas are not highly desirable as food, since their meat may contain the same toxin as puffers and porcupine fish. The sunfish can probably get over 100 years old.

What a peculiar fish!

jibed-gibing on livejournal seems to be the hip thing to do these days for fashionable fucks, eh? Well, then I am glad to have made my contributions.

Hayley and I had KFC with real disgusting Kool Aide. I'm so glad to be a member of PETA. Then we saw a movie.

The Exorcism of Emily Rose was really good. The plot was different than what I had expected.
I'm amused that it's based on a true story, and the end notes to the movie suggested that they used more facts for the actual situation in the movie than they would on movies that are concepted from true stories...I'm going to google facts from the original case when I'm done writing this entry.

I believe the actual purpose of the movie was to spread the word that "God Isn't Dead, how could he be dead if the devil isn't dead?" (kind of like Passion of the Christ, only directed toward a COMPLETELY different audience).

And I admit, it did make me rethink what my own faith is..

I'm not a Christian, I do not buy into a lot of their fundamentals and ot theories of the Holy Trinity and The Devil. I'm not an atheist, I do believe that we all have a spirit. I think I'm borderline Agnostic/Spiritual. I don't know where we came from, I do not believe that there is any way to prove where we came from, I don't believe the master plan in life is to discover where we came from. That's the Agnostic part of me. I believe in ghosts. I don't believe that they have the capability to mingle with with our fates, but I suppose that it's POSSIBLE to leave tracks for us to follow. It's hard to word what I was thinking. I believe there is "good" and "evil"...but I also believe that they are both just a matter of perception, at least in most cases.
I have yet to decide whether or not I believe in Fate. There are so many minor things in my life that if they never happened, major things would never occur. But I know that believing in fate would have to accept that there is a higher being, a head honcho, and I don't believe that there is right one right now.
The biggest hint that I am Agnostic is that I admit that I do not know what happens after death. But I am always interested in hearing what everyones theory is. I don't think that there is any way at all to prove or disprove what happens, but I think there is no reason to fear it because it will happen to every last person on Earth. I don't believe that there is a point in attempting to discover what will happen, because as I said before, it is impossible to find out. I'm just going to roll with it. Whatever happens happens. You know.

I have the gayest obsession with the rhino.

I want to see them Saturday, but I don't know if I have enough to pay for two tickets.

Lately the only reply I have recieved to "I can't. I don't have enough money." was "So rob someone". Oh, yeah of coarse!

xxToofastforlove: i say we just rob someone monday afternoon
xxToofastforlove: take a bus home
lol clay aiken: that's like, so realistic
xxToofastforlove: it is in philly
lol clay aiken: and we're two girls from wilkesbarre pennsylvania
xxToofastforlove: aka two tuff bitchez.

For some reason, that was really funny.

So apparently Deryk has been talking "shit" on me to Nikki Ashton and apparantly every other entry in Nikki's journal is either about me or Hayley.
I JUST recieved email that you actually REPLYED to the "obsessive little bitch" thing....i don't check these things unless people tell me you wrote about me.....FYI: I don't care what Deryk said about me. I'm annoyed that he talks about me...but the facts are flipped around. I told HIM that I cannot fucking stand him after 4 weeks and I spent a half hour flipping out at him. Then he dumped me in a text message cause he's a big pussy...then he went around telling people i'm verbally abusive HAHA!

to make the tides even....i heard you give toothy blowjobs.

I made an oath to stop causing drama in my journal but let me just do this one last thing:

Deryk Crucious, I think you are psychotic and obsessive. So does 90% of the people I have met who talk to you. I do not care about you. I do not even like you as a person. In fact, I told Hayley that this guy seems to like me a lot and the FIRST thing she said was "OH GOD. IS HE CRAZY/OBSESSIVE LIKE DERYK? OR IS HE COOL? I'M SORRY BUT HE PISSES ME OFF SO MUCH." And don't bust on Hayley because she has EVERY right to say that. She made that opinion on you first hand, not through things I said about you.
Seriously, Deryk is the biggest mistake I have made.
I'm writing this all in my journal because it appears that all you people stoop down to the same.
And Nikki, chill out. It's not funny that Deryk talks about me. Because apparently your BFF's ex boyfriend says that his favorite person to bust on is her. And the difference is that I do not CARE about him. NEWS FLASH: I NEVER REALLY DID THAT MUCH IN THE FIRST PLACE. to be totally honest, I think I just enjoyed the attention and I enjoyed having someone to say nice things to me....I know now that is completely wrong and I sware I won't ever do anything like that again....But seriously, the whole time I told everyone how annoying he was. Ok? So any statements you have against me are now fucked.
And honestly, the only time I think that a boy talking shit on a girl he used to like...(like is an understatement in this case)...is when the girl still likes the boy. Then I admit, that's hilarious. But when the girl really really really does not give a shit about this boy, she has for the most part forgotten all about him, because she WANTS to forget all about him...then the boy is just creepy and obsessive.
So I am making this entry not so much because I am immature, but because this shit is fucking old.
I'm going to go out in public and say that I like Joe. A lot. He tells me he likes me a lot, and he says the cutest things....AND BEST OF ALL IT DOES NOT COME OFF AS OBSESSIVE!!!!! He lives far away from me but I'm going to spend Saturday Sunday and potentially Monday with him at his place and we are going to have an amazing time together, we've been looking foward to it since the last time we saw each other. p.s. he's cute.
EDIT: i would like to add that after one of deryks friends read this, the only thing they said was "awwwwwe have fun with joe!" ... so if anything is funny in this whole mix it's THAT.
Oh, p.s: before you make any accusations against me, people used to run up to me all the time and try to get me to talk shit on Deryk. You know what I said? I SAID: "I dated him knowing who he was, despite any of his flaws. I accepted him for who he was at the time, there's no reason for me to stop now. We just didn't get along as well as we thought we did". But after talking on the phone to this kid who told me everything, yeah it's pathetic. I'm writing a lot more than what I should have written. Joe told me to just ignore deryk because once he realizes I don't care, he'll stop....But I think it's obvious that I do not care....and 2 months later he has not stopped.

I started making a new layout. Then I got bored and I don't feel like finishing it.

My Law Class is a complete joke.

Directions: Read the situations, answer the question, and give a brief explanation why you answered in this way.

Jeff was upset because his basket ball team was losing. He thought about deliberately injuring the opposing team's star player, but he decided not to. Did Jeff make the ethically right decision?

another good one:

Lisa was charged for shoplifting, but was found innocent. She was later charged for the same offense, and the prosecutor called this crime embezzlement. Can this happen to Lisa?

I think they were trying to teach about double jeopardy, but isn't embezzlement stealing money that was trusted to you?

On a different note:
I'm about to sound like a really big dork, because I just found out that "alright" is really spelled "all right". I need to talk to an English Major because that leads me to ask if:
"already" should be "all ready" and "another" should be "an other" and "almost" should be "all most"?

Whatever. Hayley and I aren't going to class on Friday because we're going to go see The Exorcism of Emily Rose and then go to Kirby Park with a checkered blanket and have a KFC picnic like I used to when I lived in the Bronx.

Work again today! Yesterday I stocked 6,000 pillows.

Why are there so many gay teenage boys these days? I don't have a problem with it...it's just a noticable amount. Like the time at Wegmans there was an Asian Invasion...nobody's racist against Asians these days, it's just like...what gives? There were just so many that Asian-American's said "Oh. Great. Now everyones going to think I'm apart of this."

I have yet to go to every single one of my classes. I'm so bad...Today was my first day in Law. I didn't mind it as much as I thought I would. Current Events is a lot of fun. I learned that I'm like, 95% liberal, which is the highest in my class. I think I'd rather be an independant though..I'm glad I took current events. It's the easiest class ever, and you actually learn a lot. Like how abortion is probably going to go through another supreme court ruling... I think I really want to be a divorce lawyer.

I miss Liz. Everyone I talked to misses Liz and tells me to have her come back as if I were responsible for her... I went to her moms office today and talked about how being a school nurse would be the perfect job for her.

I really want to go to the zoo to see the rhinos. And I really want to see The Excorsism of Emily Rose.

Work today. 5:30 - 10:30, this is my shortest shift yet. They put me to a lot of work too. I feel like I can put my duties down on a resume to work for a construction company. But the pay is good. And I think I get paid today. Woo!

Reality hasn't really sunk in that after tonight I won't see Liz until Thanksgiving. I'm in a sad mood. I have work tomorow at 8, which is the same time she's leaving.

Getting older sucks.
