So today is the first day back from our spring break. I already can't wait to go home, even if I'm only going home for less than 24 hours.

Today I decided I wanted to change. I'm not going to specifically say the change because every time I do, I start to give up. But just know that by my 21st birthday I will be different. Sorry I'm being so vague but I need to mentally set myself up for this.

To start, I began "Biggest Loser: Boot Camp" and the 'weeks 1-2' program KICKED. MY. ASS. Holy crap, I can definitely see this working. :)

Another update is that I think I figured out where I want to go study abroad. SUNY Brockport offers an internship placement program in London. I would take classes at a London university and then be placed in a part-time internship. It isn't tailored specifically for my major, but I'm pretty sure I could find something. Fingers crossed!!

I am physically and mentally exhausted.

I have been running around with hardly any time to myself, with a full day, from 10 to (at the earliest) 8 pm.

I hate it, I still want to go home very badly but I'm being pulled in every direction possible. Why can't I just have 10 minutes to myself? I don't think I'm asking for much, but apparently I am. It's not like I could schedule my time any differently, either. There's just not enough time in the day.

sigh.

I just saw Avatar and I really enjoyed it. Sometimes I felt like the connection with the audience was a little too forced, but other than that, the art direction and everything else was fantastic.

And I realize that my last post makes me sound like a selfish brat. I have since gotten over it and learned to appreciate...stuff, I guess.


I went to Montreal for New Years, and it was probably one of the best trips I've ever taken. I was with some of my best friends and we did pretty much everything we could. We all fell in love with Canada and I'm trying to re-figure out my life so I can live there. In all seriousness. Maybe not French Canada, but most definitely considering a move to the Great White North.

Tomorrow, rockerbabyfi12 and I are heading out to Boston to see the Harry Potter Exhibit. Woot!!

Additionally, come the start of this semester, I will be pretty much unreachable. Not only am I the President of my Sorority, but I have a job now, too. So the two of those on top of classes will pretty much be the death of me. Wish me luck!

we need a little Christmas...

for Christmas I got:
HBP on DVD
Star Trek (on BluRay, so I have to go return that)
Season 1 of Pushing Daisies on DVD (freaking finally!!)
2 tank tops (that are too large. so again, I have to return it)
a patterned shirt and sweater (neither of which are my style...you see where this is going...)
a pair of grey Toms shoes
two pair of holiday socks (I hate wearing socks.)
a microwave pasta/veggie steamer (why the fuck would I want that...)
and a pair of pearl earrings.

So Christmas was kind of a bust, if you ask me. My parents got a 32" flat screen TV, a top-of-the-line nurses kit and a new iPod. All I really wanted was a fucking Kindle/Nook. I've been sleeping/in my room all day because I'm so upset and I can't bring myself to tell my parents how upset I am about this. I don't care if i'm being a brat. clothes and a veggie steamer do not make good gifts when you were expecting at least one big gift.

Whatever.

Merry Christmas, guys.

all i want for Christmas is my two front teeth...

speaking of teeth, I got my two top wisdom teeth removed today.

I'm in moderate amounts of pain, but it's not too bad with the vicodin. :) I feel kind of ick with the gauze and the ice pack, I have to change the gauze every 30 mins and i can't eat "grainy" things, only soft stuff.

This all happened right before my Gingerbread house party, which kinda sucks, but it was either today or Christmas Eve...so I guess I got lucky.

bonjour mes nouveaux amis!

Hi there!

Fair warning, I don't post very often, but I'll give you a little bit of an update on my life.

The only update I can really think of is how excited I am for Christmas. I got some awesome presents for my family and friends, especially you, rockerbabyfi12 ;) I always look forward to giving gifts. I get really excited.

I also might get to go to Montreal for New Years Eve. The whole trip, with my best friends Alex and Emily, will only cost us about $200 each, and even though money is kind of tight right now I think my parents are going to figure out a way to send me. Sometimes I feel bad thinking about how much they give up for me to have what I want, but I appreciate them all the more for it. I'm an only child, so why the f not, eh? Strike that. I'm like the antithesis of a bratty only child, even though I tend to get what I want.

Anywho, "Enchanted" is on and I love that movie, so welcome to my journal, new friends!

P.S. Welcome the return of my Christmas icon. I know you love it, takeit28 hehe

I just had to clean out the fridge because all the vegetables in the drawer had gone bad and rotted. I had to throw them all away and then de-mold the drawer. I then told my roommate what I did, because the were all her veggies, and she just says "but I just bought fresh ones."

SHE DIDN'T EVEN -fucking- THANK ME.

I wanted to hurl. Side note, she also does not wash her dishes, but leaves them until I can't stand it anymore.

There are only 17 days until I'm done with this semester and hopefully things will change.
