life plans

July 14th, 2008 (03:55 pm)

I realize that all I want to do is read, write in my journal, long board, eat, and dance... does this count for anything? I mean, it's all cool stuff... now only if I could get paid to do it. Driving back from Oregon City this afternoon I realized that I JUST WANNA DANCE! I really want to go out (SOON!) and dance the night away. I want to skate all around Portland once I learn how to stop without jogging off my board. If only there were more hours in the day because it seems to go by too fast. As soon as I'm writing I'm being beckoned to some other cool adventure and as soon as I grab a book, it's time to eat or sleep or go outside and be all sorts of active. Now that I'm almost married, boys like to tell me that they have either loved me in the past or love me still. I'm flattered. LIKE I NEED A BIGGER EGO. But it's all cool because my heart belongs to my friends and Dave. No room for newsies. I wanna go out late at night when the hustle and bustle of life has died down and I can just relax and cruise the city streets with my friends who interest me and challenge me in one way or another. Summer is fucking rad and so far this one has been the ultimate. No major issues other than some d-bags pissing me off every once in a while. I mean, not everyone can be as cool as me and my select few friends who maintain my respect and love. But really, why can't I get paid to read, skate, write, eat, and dance?

Back in the swing of things

June 29th, 2008 (04:58 pm)

I don't really like lj much but I do like writing about myself so it works out just fine. Does anybody know of any shows coming up in the downtown area that aren't like a million dollars? I want to go to a lot of shows this summer. I signed up for a tanning package today and I'm super excited because I've never actually been tan and I absolutely HATE tan lines, especially on my boobz. This will be cool. I'm loving the fact that it's warm/hot out the last few days. It's about time and this afternoon's rain was fine with me too, because it was still warm enough to walk in. Keep it up, Oregon. Things are really shaping up for me and now that I have July mapped out on my calendar, I realize there is a lot going on for me! I'm excited to just be busy in the fun kind of way. You know, busy doing things I like rather than feel obligated to do.

blast from the past

June 25th, 2008 (05:23 pm)

hi! it's been months, hasn't it? well, i've been reading back through peoples' ljs, like YEARS back for those who have been here that long, and it's fun. but time consuming. i feel like i've relearned so many weird things about people. haha. well, time for some lemonade!

Hey, this is important

March 12th, 2008 (09:33 am)

I know that we're all broke and doing our own things to try and skim by but I'm in the process of trying to fundraise for the National MS Foundation. As some of you know, my mom has been living with MS for over 30 years now and there just isn't enough money to research the cause and effects of MS thoroughly. I have this little website where you can donate any amount of money, as little or as much as you want. Even $5 would mean the world to me. It's tax deductible if that makes a difference to you! Also, just so you all know, MS is found to be more prelavent in the Northwest, that means all of us are at a higher risk for getting MS. Do we know why? No. That's why we need to fundraise to get more money for research! Also, children as young as 2 years old are being diagnosed now whereas in the past it was mainly women (and some men) in their early 20s who were diagnosed. So, if any of you fantastic people can help out, please do! Here's a link, check it out, it's nothing special, but seriously, any contribution is better than none. Thanks you all!!!!

(no subject)

March 2nd, 2008 (10:59 am)

i just don't know what i am going to do about graduate school. i don't know where to apply or if my grades are even good enough. i don't know how long it will take me and i don't think i'll be in hawaii long enough to apply, get accepted, go through the classes, and graduate. i'm stressed. there is this military affiliated university that does online classes and then sets you up with courses at the local universities (not community colleges) and lets people who are constantly moving and relocating try to get their master's degrees but the M.Ed through that uni doesn't qualify for state licensure so idk what i'd do with that, you know? i mean, maybe it'll make it easier to get licensed, idk. EVERYTHING IS JUST IDK. i'm sure i'll figure it out some day soon. right now i suppose i just need to graduate with my BA before thinking about my MA...

i leave in two weeks for hawaii and i need to get to the gym at least 9 times before then. haha. not that it'll change anything, but it'll make me feel really healthy. i was doing really well with going like 3-4 times a week, but last week i was just busy and didn't go once. so i need to stop being a lazy kid and just go. as for today, i just want to eat rice and doritos. don't ask me why. it just sounds really good.

joe is out of jail and as hopeful as i was for him to be reformed... i just don't know. my doubts are numerous. i feel bad for his girlfriend if he hasn't changed because then it'll just be torture for her to deal with. i just don't understand if you were a drug addict and alcoholic then why would you surround yourself with ALL the people that helped make you that way? like, as soon as he was out of jail he was with these dumbasses who are part of the reason he turned out so badly and then he's throwing a huge party and getting wasted and being so irresponsible. in my opinion, if any of these people cared about him FOR REAL, they would have celebrated his release from jail by taking him out to a nice dinner or something that didn't involve low-lives, drugs, and kegs. these people are immatuare and stupid. i really can honestly say i think i hate most of them.

end.

damn 24 hour fitness

January 28th, 2008 (06:11 pm)

It was so busy when i got there that i just turned around and came home. I counted 6 people waiting for the treadmills and i ain't havin that. i will work out in my living room.
we're getting the insurance figured out for the wedding at the vineyard and i'm so excited. now that it's finally settled, i get to get some invitations made! woot.
i'm burnt out on school right now. and that feels so wrong. it's week 4 of 10 and i'm done. just done. oh well, i'll make it. right?
i really want to go to get breakfast tonight. but i shouldn't. maybe i'll do that this weekend with someone. it needs to be a good someone because i want a good time.
i live a boring life these days but i'm perfectly content with it.

did all my assignments except for this stupid one

January 24th, 2008 (04:49 pm)

yeah, you heard me. i didn't want to. it was stupid. i might do it later and turn it in with a note saying "sorry, i was sick and forgot." who knows. i had a mental breakdown last night and called dave crying because i was all stressed about school, worried i was going to get poor grades which would result in me never getting into graduate school--therefore never becoming a teacher and ultimately being a failure as a human being as well as a wife. LOL. the things your mind comes up with under pressure and not having slept well for a while. needless to say he put some sense in my mind and i went to sleep.

i have ten disgusting rash-like splotches on my legs. as it turns out, i'm having an allergic reaction to the bug bites i got in hawaii. i mean, i never get bug bites in oregon! oh well, hopefully they'll go away soon so i can wear dresses and skirts. also, my blood pressure was "remarkably high" and my temperature was only like 96 degrees. haha. i am falling apart, apparently.

josie got a C+ on what should have been at least a B paper. this worries me. the professor hasn't even graded mine so now i have to go the entire weekend without knowing what she thinks of my writing. AND we have a writing assignment due on tuesday. SIGH.

i'm going to my parents' house tomorrow to celebrate my engagement with them. free food! then i'm coming home on saturday where upon i will sit a lot. perhaps sleep a lot. and them commence homework day on sunday. hopefully i will convince myself to actually do tons of homework all of sunday so that i will have less to do/worry about during the week. better sleep, more time for looking at things other than my keyboard and coursereaders, and perhaps a nice walk or two.

my mouth tastes like breakfast sandwich

January 18th, 2008 (04:18 pm)

self explanatory. also, went to the portland's white house with beth to view it and, as it turns out, it's really pretty and nice. but i'm still leaning toward the vineyard but i have to go there to see if it's what we want. I JUST DON'T KNOW. also, my back hurts and somehow i'm still hungry. i'm craving snack food. like popcorn or tortilla chips and salsa. that sounds divine.

January 17th, 2008 (07:20 am)

most likely going to get kicked out of my apartment or some shit. that, or it'll burn down. or i'll just never have lights in my bathroom again.
apparently iced mocha is code for chocolate milk because i haven't had a good iced mocha in months because people are chocolate happy. yuck.
i have 6 months left til i'm outta here and things just seem to be getting harder and harder because psu likes to wreck lives.
i want sushi!
