On way to the rainbow [
Thursday May 31st, @ 04PM
]
[ mood | giddy ]

* Can't wait for Ferndale pride + My B-Day + Emily's B-day

* In the mood for a club omelet from Olympic Grill with some hash browns, but will not have them because feel very proud of sticking to new diet for 4 days (not to mention still have 2/3 veggie man-ushi in the fridge).

* Saw some people at the pool today before I had to go to work. Hated them and wished I was *with* them despite the fact a) can't tan, b) can't swim and c) hate bikinis

* My dad said he might come down to Belo to see me and mom. :D Only 31 days now!

[ mood | relaxed ]

This might sound mean, but I've realized that I unwind so much better on my own, without James to distract me. For some reason, I feel like coming home straight to him doesn't let me get away from "alert mode", because I know we're gonna talk about his day and my day and etc etc. Not that I don't wanna do that, but shutting off for a while feels so good. A good lesson learned.

By the way, the Science of Sleep is a wonderful, cooky, crazy, beautiful film. Makes me remember how sweet (and totally ok) it is to be crazy.

[ mood | bored ]

I know I shouldn't be complaining, but getting paid to sit on your ass sometimes can be quite boring. Way too boring. I wish I was out in the sun having icecream. Or sushi. Or both.

The very fact I am updating this thing for the first time since moving here means something, for sure.

Anyways... last day of portuguese class is June 22. Seems for f*cking close!!! Can't wait to go home and party with Jen and Colette though. And Carol. And eat my mommy's food. And watch brazilian Dancing with the Stars with mommy. And seeing my pretty cousins who are growing up regardless of me being there. I miss everyone so much. On that note, I need to move to NYC.

PLANS FOR THE SUMMER:
*Lose 15lbs and become incredibly fit again.
*Read my Intro to Grad Studies brochure + Marotti's book
*Write and FINISH a couple of stories
*Go to BRASIL!!!!!!!!!!

That is all for now. I've been reading Bridget Jones's diary and it's making me both happy and sad. She weights less than I do. I'm hoping she's much, much shorter.

All for now.
xoxo.

Cloudy days [
Monday October 16th, @ 01PM
]

I made the stupid mistake of starting a discussion I knew was gonna lead to no good. And yet I did it anyways. And now I feel very upset and confused. How many conflicting goals can a couple have before it starts coming between them?
On a side note, I'm upset that I'm not gonna be able to come home. I didn't expect to be. How odd.

So, the professors don't really expect you to THOROUGHLY read EVERYTHING? Think you could've told me that sooner?

Damn Grad School is still opressing me though. Someone take me for a drink!!! (and shopping).

There has been a lack of updates due to a lack of news (other than the obvious).
The new brasilian girls are in though, and we must show them a good time. That is all for now.

[Feeling simply | worried]

Sometimes it feels like everything is conspiring against you. But if you believe in negative energy, naturally you must believe in energy flows, and thus there must be some awesome positive energy coming my way soon. Or at least I hope so.
If you believe all that too.. send some positive energy my way. I can use it.

I'm so excited!! I wanna pack everything now and jump on a plane tomorrow. Except I still have to work my butt of at the gym to look good by then.. so I'll settle for waiting another 31 days.

Meanwhile, one of the 3 new WSU students has just arrived, and he's a sweetheart. We're taking him out tonight.
Oh, and Emma is the sweetest girl ever. &hearts

[Feeling quite | optimistic]

After a day of messing with it, it's finally ready! My new layout.. well, almost. Something is still bugging me about it.

I'm on vacation (sorta) and very much in love and happy and excited. And freaked out about new beginnings and changing my life around and growing up. But in a very good way.

WSU students start arriving this week. A music major and two PRs. Good group!!

Well, kids, it's official now... I arrive on August 10th and my darling and I can be found in our swanky, empty, cool new place at the Belcrest.

Only one thing missing now...

What do you do when your own mother says you are an empty person, completly devoid of the right values?

You tell her, at the verge of tears, that sadly enough, she will never know you. And you look at her and she's about to cry too.

[Feeling quite | nerrrrvous]

I'm worried. And nervous. And stressed.
Thesis is due next week, and I can't write everything I wanted to /thought of.
The apartment of my dreams seems to be available, however, it will involve a lot of confusion, paperwork and, quite possibly (don't know if I can still hope for a T.A... maybe not... ugg) me going nearly broke.

Faith is the only thing keeping me sane now.

It will all be worth it.

God... 48 days...

I NEED TO KNOW THAT YOU CARE.

What a sweet party. Thanks so much Bella, Emma and Sam for making it so special.
