oh how seldom we belong [entries|friends|calendar]

And songs are never quite the answer,
just a soundtrack to a life,
that is over all too soon,
helps to turn the days to night,
while i was wrong and you were right

A entry straight from costa rica! [20 Feb 2005|05:59pm]
[ mood | costa rican crazy. haha. ]

I´m in costa rica, in an internet cafe. and the keyboard has spanish, and is different, and its sucks. Norma, couldnt remember your email so ill just update here. i miss everyone, but i am having so much fun! yesterday we went to the beach and a nature reserve, and another beach. i got realyl sunburned, but oh well! i am thinking in spanish, and its hard not to speak with a spanish accent! hahaha. today was activity with family day, and we went to an amusement park in san jose. i love my family, they are sooo awesome. everyone agrees i got the best family. sam´s family sucks and never talks to her, and katie´s sister is the bitch in the group, but we are all having fun. tomorrow is the zipline canopy tour, and then same, mariana, and i are going shopping, and sam is sleeping over at mariana´s. its all just so much fun. i have bought so much, and my favorite thing here is notebooks made of recycled banana paper. i bought jelwery, and a wooden ring that fits perfectly for a dollar!!! and gafas del sol, of course. (sunglasses!) haha. all the boys are so cute, especially luis (who is not a boy, is a man! haha and hot.) and hes flirty.. but hes a teacher, and like 25.. oh well! haha. Norma, tell mom i will call later in the week after i buy a costa rican phone card, because mine will not work. I miss you all. This is the experience of a lifetime, and i cannot handle it - is alot of fun. friday i was really tired, and is started crying at our party, but i am much better now - i even think i am going to lose lots of weight because i eat nothing, and am not hungry. i try lots of things, but i am not eating much at all... not even equivalent to one meal a day, but im not hungry so its ok. except, yesterday at the restaurant in Jaco i had Maji Maji (dolphin fish) and it was SOOO GOOD! i want more more more. hahaha.
oh, when i get back i will write more, i am keeping a journal.
i bought this awesome handmade photo album, made of banana paper, with a star on it that says COSTA RICA, for 11 dollars. that was the most expensive thing, things are cheap. today mariana´s brother took me to a shop with ceramic ware, and i got lots of stuff for myself and mom. Mom, I´m sorry, i might spend all my money. thigns are cheap, but not that cheap, and i want EVERYTHING! dont worry, im not buying things like clothes, although i bought a new pair of sandals at the beach because my broke - but that was necessity. Norma - how is the man? anything good lately? haha. Byron and I might go to prom together.
my host mother is the best. we cannot communicate well at all, because she knows no english, but shes always making sure i am ok, and always trying to make me eat! all i eat is fruit.. and it is soo good!ç
OH!!! yesterday morning i got up at 330 am and we went to the ¨fair¨, the market. its huge, the size of a county fair, set up with stands and every fruit and vegetable i´ve ever seen, and the ones i havent. and i love market style shopping, with bartering and such! i bartered for a wooden box, and talked the guy down to 2000 colones from 5000 colones! (10 dollars down to 4 dollars! )haha I rock. mr. hy said so haha. mr. hy is really cool as a person, just not as a teacher. i think i might kill amanda kelly. oh well. Sam, brian, and i are having lots of fun.. oh, and Bethany, mr. hy´s daughter. shes a sweetie.
Mariana´s neices and nephews keep asking ¨¿donde esta la gringa?¨ where is the gringa? haha, i am the gringa. and el americano estupido. haha stupid american. oh well!
i am seriously having the time of my life. i feel good, i get to shop shop shop, and i am going to be tan when i return to the states. yay.
school is very boring... there is nothing for us to do, and the teachers all talk very fast so we cannot understand. the students are all very focused on school work. they only have jobs on summer vacation, and when brian, sam, and i told them we work and go to school, they about had a fit. jaws dropped all over the place. oh well haha it was soo funny.
all in all, i love it here. the shops, the people, the countryside - its all so awesome. brian and i want to live here, except it is sooo tiring trying to speak spanish. i have already filled 3 cameras, and tomorrow i am buying more - mama, i knew i would need like 10 or 12! haha - developing is gonna cost me money...
oh! marianá´s father is a truck driver just like mine! and her brothers as well. they gave me two tshirts for dad from their companies... its soo cool.
alas, i hate beans but like rice. and fish. yum.
..right now im breaking the rules. i am alone in the internet cafe in belen, and mariana is with her boyfriend.. and we are not supposed to be alone.. but she will be back in 10 minutes, only gone for 45 minutes.. i will be fine, there are lots of people around, but boy do i feel badass! haha.
its cool, 300 colones for an hour on the computer. about 75 cents! haha it works for me. I am not in a rich family like amanda, maureen, katie, and brian.. so we dont have a computer - but oh well, the cafes are cool.
did i mention i miss you guys? but im surprised... i havent been homesick at all. just really tired, because we are always out late, and get up SOOOO early. today i slept the latest i will be able to all week, and that was til 8. all the rest of the week i have to be up by 5. ugh. oh well, its worth it all.
its worth all the money, strife, and missing out on things in the states.
i cannot believe i have written this much!
goodnight, los estados unidos. i love you.

a bit of a livejournal disclaimer and explanation and empathization all in one. [19 Jan 2005|05:55pm]
[ mood | discontent ]

so if anyone understood my post last night, good for you.
what i meant was.. okay - I've been part of the livejournal community for over 3 years (almost 4 infact) and when i first joined, I went through all sorts of livejournal drama. between bitchy girls who didnt like me and asshole guys who thought i wasnt as cool as my livejournal showed i was (haha) i had my own share of hundreds of anonymous comments.
but that was in seventh and eighth grade.
after 4 years I've realized that no matter who you are, you will experience shit from people when you first get your lj and other people realize they have the power of the anonymous comment. But also, after 4 years, i've realized this shit also goes away.
recently some kids who are joining up in livejournal land are dealing with this. whether its one small thing about words on one person's lj, or a million posts on a completley different group's ljs about a whole load of shit... its happening again.
So I am veryhappy I've been around for a while and dealt with this a long time ago, and dont have to deal anymore.. because i think at 16 17 and 18 years old were all too old to be doing this "anonymous bitch you out on the internet" thing. C'mon kids, this is not schoolscum.com era, were over this. be friends.
so my note to all this is - if your being harassed, ignore it. if its true, fine - ignore it. if its not true, fine - ignore it. if your harassing, quit it or get it out of your system because your typing shit up, whether true or not, is a waste of energy.
believe me.. they'll get bored with it. and the majority of it will stop.
but also, fellow livejournalers - sometimes, you do have to take to heart what these people are saying. because some of the time, its your friends anonymously commenting, telling you the truth as they wish they could show you how it was.. but dont want to hurt your feelings or your friendships.
looking back, i realize that some shit people said to me anonymously was true...and i take that to heart.
and i know that most of it was false.. and i just ignore it.
keepstrong livejournalers. ♥

yep so I'm not even gonna say it. You all know already anyway.
but there is a hell of a lot of snow out there (",)
haha. So I guess my plans for today are chilling around the house unless Lauren gets her butt outta bed and gets ahold of me, but I guarantee she sleeps til 12. ha.
NEWS FLASH! My mom enjoyed Napoleon Dynamite! I was watching it a couple days ago and she was sitting in her chair, and i thought she was sleeping the whole time, until my sister and I were quoting it last night to steven, and my mom was laughing, saying things like "that part was soo funny" WHOA. what is up in this crazy mixed up world? haha.

just saw this somewhere.. don't know how widespread or valid but just though I'd put it out there. [04 Jan 2005|04:47pm]


On January 14th, 2005, we Americans who are furious with the current President will each send one grab-bag-sized bag of pretzels to the White House (just to show we care) at the following address:

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Spread this message to every Bush-fearing person you know; post it on message boards, communities, etc. that you belong to.

Where are you Christmas
Why can't I find you
Why have you gone away
Where is the laughter
You used to bring me
Why can't I hear music play
My world is changing
I'm rearranging
Does that mean Christmas changes too
Where are you Christmas
Do you remember
The one you used to know
I'm not the same one
See what the time's done
Is that why you have let me go
