It's been a kind of interesting past few days. I wonder if it's because the fall season has started. The air seems a lot more different. The feel of every new day seems different. Maybe it's because I'm working more so than ever before. I'm practically at work everyday, so I see and hear a lot of interesting things. Now, I feel like I'm beginning to ramble on. Enough about work. Work is work, let it be work.

The inspiration for my gallery is really moving along. I'm beginning to buy the supplies I need and I have dreams about it even. I just like to imagine it the way I would like it to be. I hope the end product is what it looks like in my dreams.

Tonight, I'm going to a bar with a few friends in Logan Square, which I have to actually leave for very soon. Today was mostly a boring, lazy day. It was actually quite gloomy out up until the last few hours of daylight when the sun came out. A lot of people have been bringing up the September 11th attacks.

They ask me where I was when 9/11 happened. I remember it quite vividly. I was a Sophomore in High School in 2001. I was in my homeroom period when I heard one of the girls in my classroom tell us about what happened. I was really confused and didn't really quite understand what was going on until we turned on the TV. That's when I saw the footage of the planes hitting the Twin Towers. It was the only topic of the day throughout the school day. When I took the bus home, I saw my mother's car in the driveway when I usually arrive home before she does. She told me that they let her go for safety precautions. That whole entire day, we were glued to the TV and watching the news and basically, just trying to figure out what the hell happened.

I still can't believe that was almost a decade ago. It really only seems like it happened only a few years ago. Just goes to show you how incredibly fast time flies. My thoughts go out to those who lost loved ones on this very tragic day 9 years ago. I hope you have found peace.

Last night didn't turn out the way I expected it to, but it's all okay. I'm hoping something will happen tonight, but I secretly want to stay inside and watch a movie. I've been around enough people for the past few weeks that just make me want to be a hermit.

Do you ever get that feeling? Sometimes I can't force myself into being social if I'm not in the right mood. I will usually go out every weekend with friends, but sometimes I want to stay in. Or, I want to do something that doesn't require money and drinking alcohol. Everyone works for the weekend, and when it comes, they want to go out and go crazy. But for me, I work on the weekends, so the weekends are no special treat for me. The weekend is just like any other day.

I guess this is why I only have a few close friends, otherwise I feel like I'm spreading myself thin. Having too many friends means having too many responsibilities. I see that my other friends like to keep their social circles very large and find it hard to maintain a steady relationship with all of them. Sometimes you spend too much time on one person, and the other person is begging for you to hang out. I don't know how you do it!

The sink is clogged again. Nothing works to unclog this stupid pipe. It takes me hours just to clean a few utensils and dishes. I don't want this damn thing overflowing. Ugh.

It's July. Probably my favorite month of the year. It's Summer. There's a lot of things going on. It's my birth month. There's just a lot of really good things about July. I'm afraid that my birthday will be the same as last year though, and that kinda scares me.

My dog of 12 years died yesterday. While I sort of expected it to happen, as he was having problems walking, seeing, and breathing, I still felt really sad. And still do.

I have to leave for work in about 30 minutes. After work, I'm officially on vacation. I can't wait.

Tonight is also the full moon drum circle, which I'm really looking forward to. I always enjoy these kind of nights. I have a feeling that something will happen afterwards. I have 2 birthdays to celebrate! Can seven o'clock come any sooner? Please?

Beautiful day! Meghan spent the night and we woke up fairly early so we could spend the morning and day at the beach. It was hot, hot, hot! Perfect weather. This is what I have been waiting for. It was so nice to finally have a day off and to enjoy it! We went to this really nice, massive beach that's a little north of my apartment. It's probably one of the nicer beaches in Chicago. Too many flies though, bleh, that drove me nuts.

We mostly sat and talked. Meghan gave me a nice Reiki massage. I got pretty sun burnt, but it's all good because it's gonna turn into a tan sooner or later. Afterwards, we took a walk to this little Mexican cafe and had some black bean empanadas and cheap margaritas. We then walked to CiCi's apartment and helped her pick out photos of Luke as he was heading to Ford Models Agency.

In about 2 hours, I'm going to see LCD Soundsystem! AHH! So excited. And I'm so excited for Blackhawks vs. Philly, oh boy oh boy.

I called off of work today as I wasn't feeling well at all. It was worth it though because I had fun last night.

It's somewhat hard for me to relax. Instead of doing what I should've done (sleeping) I ended up cleaning the kitchen area and throwing out the trash. Clutter bothers me a lot. I like things to be neat and organized otherwise I lose things more often or that it basically drives me crazy. I think I get it from my mom. She is definitely a clean freak. No matter what hour of the day it is, she will get down on her knees and clean. She arranges the food in the cabinets and refrigerator on a regular basis, so much so that it is often hard to find what you're looking for. I don't think she ever has a time to relax at all. I hope this Mother's Day, she'll do just that.

John is on the south side today. I'm stuck here. Bored. Slightly tired. And sick. At least this pounding headache went away. And at least I don't have to go into work. Ahh, feels nice.

My gums always bleed when I brush and floss. I should probably see a dentist about my enamel that is chipping off, but I really don't want to. I suppose I will since it is pretty much free, thank you Jewel!

John and I will be leaving for the AMC theater soon to see Kick-Ass for free. I'm pretty excited.
