Alright, I'm not totally sure but I think this is the end for _fiendishthingy and I. I no longer possess (that looks mispelled to me. So does "mispelled" come to think of it) the desire to update this or write about random occurances in my life here. So, yeah, goodbye Livejournal. You have served me well and maybe someday our paths will meet again. Maybe I'll get another blog elsewhere someday. I don't know. Anyway, good night, Livejournal, and good luck.

By the way, Ashley is still a whore.

Merry Christmas to all! 

Hope everyone had a joyous and cliched-riddled holiday.

Now, onto equally important things: when shall we all get together for Secret Santa exchange? What date is best and what are our present-buying status? I want to do this soon because I may be going away on mini-break and I would love to have a real, fun, classy Christmas party with cocktails, waiters and a smooth jazz piantist before I go.

So, who would be interested in going to the Big Apple Circus in Lincoln Center? Apparently I can get discounts so we would only have to pay $25 each. Anyone interested?

It's finally here!!

I'm finally on winter break and let me tell you, I could not be happier. That is not to say that school has not gotten easier. It has. The terrible transition is long behind me BUT I have never been more excited for Christmas than I am right now. At least not in recent memory. The last two Christmases I was so "Blah" (you could see my old lj entries from those past two Christmases... my heart was not in it and I was somewhat Charlie Brown-esque). Ah well, that is also behind me and I am so terribly, undeniably excited for the Christmas season. My heart is so in it. 

Christmas is going to be awesome. Let's have many parties and get togethers and dress up and drink cocktails. 

I'm so happy right now. Even though I am sans the friendship journal. *cough*

Birds that warble on key!! [20 Sep 2006|07:07pm]
[ mood | drained ]

OK, wow, crazy week. So, apparently I am becoming a semi-involved on campus student and I'm freaking out over it. I definitely joined two clubs at TCNJ, which I'm both really excited for: one is called Ed_2010 and it's basically a club for those interested in the magazine business and who want to build up their resume, network, get internships at magazines and hopefully jobs later on. The girl who runs it has worked for a bunch of places like Seventeen, Redbook, CosmoGirl etc. And though I had Vanity Fair and Time magazine in mind, that's still really cool. Also, I joined Unbound, the TCNJ online magazine and apparently they want me to write like "several" articles for it. I don't know what they mean by several but we shall see. And thankfully it's more laid-back than the newspaper, the Signal, which I am in process of joining and am lukewarm about. 

Finally, there's WILL (Women in Learning and Leadership), which I am also not sure about. I mean, it's a good program and good to have on your resume but I'm just not sure it's for me. I also have to take like five courses in Women and Gender Studies and I'm just not THAT interested in WGS to take extra classes in it when I want to be so focused on my English courses and writing extracurricularly. So I'm really overwhelmed by it all right now, having just returned from the WILL induction, and with a lot of stuff to do on Sunday and Tuesday. OK, so it's really not that much but I'm just easily frazzled and sort of weirded out by it all. A part of me just wishes it was like high school again where everything extracurricular happened during lunch. That was so much easier.

Anyway, I hope everyone is doing better than I am right now in college. I just hate having to perpetually think about doing something. I'd much rather be focused and dedicated to a couple of things than have a lot of little things to think about. *sigh*

On a much, much, MUCH better note, I may be getting tickets to the Daily Show with Jon Stewart this November :D

WTF, mate. 

Is no one ever going to update their lj's ever again? That would be so depressing, I cannot even say.

Anywho, obviously, I am taking the liberty to be the first CHS-er to update their lj since moving into college. I worked on the friendship journal this weekend but I didn't write much. In fact, I didn't even know what to write. Also, I was watching "Arrested Development" while doing so, so I was distracted. But I did decorate it somewhat.

Alrighty, just wanted to update and hopefully nudge other CHS-ers to do so as well because I do NOT want to give up this silly lj. Too many memories are written about on here.

On a sidenote, should I also get a blogspot or something? I don't know. Whatev.

On a sidenote, I know what Tomkitten looks like!! AHAHAHAHAHA.

Across the country and around the world, this is Anderson Cooper 360... [15 Jul 2006|11:37pm]
[ mood | okay ]

Ah-HA I have returned, my friends. Two weeks, three hotels, five theme parks and one encounter with a Jack Sparrow impersonator later, I have returned to my humble abode here on the now greatly-appreciated East Coast. Actually, I am still not technically home. I will be home on Monday. Currently, I am still at Kerry Jeane's, waiting for my dad to come home from Chicago tomorrow night. I miss my bed so much.

So. California.

Yeah, definitely not my type of place. San Diego was actually very nice. It's very family-friendly and brightly colored (or as brightly colored as beige buildings, streets, sidewalks and signposts can be). And yes, I was forced to quote Anchorman several thousands over while wandering the streets of San Diego. Don't act like you wouldn't. Anywho, after three days in San Diego, I went to Manhattan Beach and Los Angeles *grimace*. Yes, I went to Hollywood and yes, I saw all the stars on the sidewalk and the handprints in the cement and the Chinese Theater and people dressed up like famous movie characters but frankly, Los Angeles was definitely not my kind of place. The beautiful L.A. you see in movies or on TV is actually like three blocks by two blocks. The rest of L.A. is like the worst imaginable section of New York, but with blazing, nonstop heat and hills made entirely of sandy dirt. That is L.A. in a nutshell. Heat and dirt.

But of course, Disneyland was awesome. The new Pirates of the Caribbean ride has animatronic Jack Sparrows and that was too cool. I got my picture taken with Jack Sparrow who acted perfectly as Johnny Depp in the movie. Also, I saw my first red carpet event. While in Hollywood I stumbled upon the red carpet to the ESPY'S or the ESPN awards. It's gonna air tomorrow but they filmed it the day I was there. I saw, among many nameless atheletes, Matthew McConaughey, Janet Jackson, and Shaquille O'Neal. So that was pretty cool although red carpets are actually incredibly boring. In real life, it's like "LADIES AND GENTLEMEN JANET JACKSON!!...And now 20 minutes of nothing happening."

So yeah, definitely was in East Coast withdrawal the entire time. I love the Atlantic Ocean, New York, my house, and even the dreaded bennys were sorely missed.

On a major downer note, while getting my daily installment of "Anderson Cooper 360", dear sweet Anderson announces that bombs are going off in Beirut, Lebanon. Now, this may seem unimportant but all of Alissar's family is there. A lot of them ran off to the mountains but now the mountains are being bombed. So, some cousins are going to Syria and others, luckily, have American citizenship so they are getting to the American Embassy and getting out. However, the casualities are mounting on the both sides of this conflict and Alissar is really worried and upset. I tried to be positive about the whole thing but when you watch Anderson, whom we both love and watch constantly, reporting while wearing a bullet proof vest in an Israeli suburb and rockets going off in the background, you tend to feel a bit pessimistic. I just sincerely hope that nothing escalates beyond what it already is and that Alissar's family is alright.

Whoa, long entry to say the least.

Well, look who it is... [21 Jun 2006|09:16pm]
Reasons why today was an excellent day:

1) Alissar called me up to go to the beach. What next ensues is a 40 minute car ride across Monmouth County to pick up Ramy's friends, with Alissar's mom performing several illegal manuvers with 8 people in the car. Much laughter about Alissar's teacher, World Refugee Day and poor driving.

2) Called Ashley and Kelly to come to the beach. They did. It was too much fun. Note: laughing in the ocean will only give you a cramp and a mouthful of water. But it was worth it.

We must plan Once-a-Week beach excersions for the CHS-ers. We talked of many things and it made me glad to know that though we are all going college, we really no more than a phone call and a car ride away.

3) Marathon of "America's Next Top Model". Oh hells yes.

4) GIANT ice cream cone from Ice Cream on 9.

5) It just was.

If today is any evidence of the future, then this summer will be splendid indeed.

And what I am is a man in a mask. [21 Mar 2006|05:49pm]

"Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished, as the once vital voice of the verisimilitude now venerates what they once vilified. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose vis-à-vis an introduction, and so it is my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V."

I loved this movie.

That is all.

PS. And I nailed yet another Calc test (Veronica Corningstone hand gesture of triumph).

I hope you know a strong man who can lend you a hand... lowering my casket... [21 Feb 2006|05:14pm]
[ mood | touched ]

So I finally decided to update after a decidedly dry spell in interesting events. Although I am afraid to admit it but nothing really all that interesting has happened lately. However, today was an excellent day for a number of reasons:

1) Did basically nothing in TV/Radio and the juniors are not as terrifying or strange as I had feared

2) Got a 100% on my Calc test (I NAILED it! *Veronica Corningstone hand-gesture of triumph*) This will be the first and last time my avg. in Calc is an "A" so I should better soak it in before it plummets completely

3) Mentorship with Diane (which is always fun) and baby Sofia (although she's nearly 2 years old now) was there

4) Finished all my Calc HW by 4 PM (Once again, I NAILED it! *Veronica Corningstone hand-gesture of triumph*)

5) No other HW or worries to bother myself with (HUZZAH)

6) I FINALLY got to see "Brokeback Mountain" on Sunday and the more and more I think about it, the more and more I love that movie. I thought it was very good when I first saw it, but in retrospect, I like it even more. I don't really know why. I think certain themes and moments in the movie that I never noticied before are finally sinking in and my subconcious is constantly going, "OH! Now I see!" Anyway, I loved this movie, Alissar loved it, she cried... and though it was heart-breakingly sad, (heart-breakingly is definitely not a word, but it should be...) I did not cry. I got choked up, but I knew from the beginning that this movie could not end up happily. Anyway, I loved this movie and as stupid as this may sound, you honestly began to forget that it was about two guys in love. Like you were so caught up in the story and their devotion to each other that it really didn't matter that it was two guys, it was just two people who loved each other. And that, I think, it was made the movie what it is. Not the whole gay theme, or any political agenda or any barrier-breaking controversies etc. I think what makes this movie so great is that at its heart, it's a love story. That's it. And there aren't very many great love stories out there anymore.

Either way, it was an awesome, beautiful movie and Heath Ledger looked gorgeous in those fitted, little cowboy shirts.

PS. Maybe I'm just a geek who reads too much into things (which I most likely am), but is it just me, or does the song "The Same Boy You've Always Known" by the White Stripes perfectly go along with "Brokeback Mountain"? Like it could've been the soundtrack; it's telling the same exact story of the movie. If you've ever heard this song or know it, then maybe you could understand what I'm talking about. It not, well just take my word for it.
