|I had to do it.
I made this quickly before I was going to walmart to get a few things. Despite the fact that it was rushed and crappily made, I am rather proud of it.
|Wednesday, April 4th, 2007|
Thanks to everyone who came to the shower. I had a good time, even if the rice was dissapointing to Jessica's high standards. Perhaps Jess should get a job as a food critic.
In other news, I got all my papers done and I gave my speech. So now I have some free time, but I feel bored. Damn, can't I ever be happy with anything. I'm either too busy, or not busy enough.
Mikey came home on Monday. He now is only going to Snowden during the day, and my parents pick him up at 4 PM. I don't know how long that is going to last before he can come home for good, but I do know it is just another strain on my parents and their jobs.
Oh and bad news... I don't know if we can rent the dance floor. That makes me sad, because I really wanted it, and think it would make the reception better. But we can only get it if we rent a tent that costs 1000 dollars, which is a bit much for something we may or may not even need. If we rented the dancefloor without the tent, and it was damaged by the rain, it would cost us the price of the dancefloor as opposed to the price of renting it.
I don't know what to do about this situation yet, because I thought it was all planned out, only to find out things still aren't settled. We really can't fit everyone in the house, so hopefully it won't rain. Times like this, I wish we had stuck with the original plan of it just being family, or maybe if we had decided to elope. Oh well. Current Mood: bridezilla

|I am so stressed
In the past 3 weeks I've had so much on my plate.
- I have school stuff that is all due around the same time
-I have wedding stuff to finish (my biggest concern is mailing all the invitations this weekend on top of doing all my papers due monday)
-My brother (Mikey) is not doing well. 3 weeks ago he set a fire in his bedroom and went into a psychotic epsiode the next day. My parents had to take him to a mental health facility in Fredericksburg. He came home a week later, and was sent back there last weekend, after another episode.
So this week the doctors gave him a more severe diagnosis (originally they believed he had bi-polar disorder). Mikey apparently has Schizoaffective Disorder. Which is basically a mix of Bipolar disorder, manic depression, and schizophrenia. I'm so worried about him, my family, school, and the wedding that I have to literally force myself to eat because I am so stressed out that I don't feel hungry. Yesterday was the lowest weight I have been since high school.
At least I have improved, I've gained weight since yesterday and am no longer underweight. I still want to gain 2 more pounds at least, since I don't like being so close to underweight.
Mikey was supposed to come home this evening, but the doctors changed their minds. Who knows when he will get to come home. The worst part of all this is how it is affecting my parents. Before this, I had NEVER seen my father cry. Now he breaks down whenever we talk about mikey. I know it's because they blame themselves for this, even though they know it isn't their fault. I also think it's harder on my father because he knows what it is like to be in a rehab facility, because he was in one for alcoholism when I was two. So he knows how bad it must be for someone who is only 15 to be in there all alone. Current Mood: sad

|I've had no school this week, and I'm getting bored
So Monday, got the flu. I lost freaking 5 pounds just because I was puking my guts out all day and couldn't eat anything. It sucked. I had to go to my Philosophy class at 3:30 because I thought he was going to give us our test, but turns out he decided to wait til wednesday. So yeah, I left. It was bad, the whole ride to school I felt terrible and then when I got to the parking lot, I ended up stuck in my car for 10 minutes puking. Thankfully I remembered to bring a baggie. I hate being sick, especially in public. I know I looked like shit when I went in the building. Oh well.
So yeah, school has been cancelled from Tuesday until Thursday. So basically I had a whole week off between snow and flu-ness.
I'm sorta bored, so I think I may try and post updated pics of my MAC collection soon. I haven't had as much money as I did when I was working, but it's still grown enough since I last took pics. I was so excited becase my MAC barbie came today! I wasn't expecting UPS to deliver it today on account of the snow, but they pleasantly suprised me.
I don't know if it's the cold weather or what, but I just can't seem to get myself to put much effort into my classes this semester. It may be some sort of collegitus or something since this is technically my last semester at LFCC. Too bad I have 2 more years elsewhere after this.
I'm thinking about dying my hair darker again. Any thoughts? I have some pics for comparison behind the cut. I just don't know if I want it really dark on my wedding day or not. Maybe I should dye it after.( way more pics of me than anyone needs to seeCollapse ) Current Mood: tired

So yes, my mother and I were talking about the wedding this evening, and she kinds guilted me into agreeing to the possibility of inviting the rest of the family to the ceremony. She told me that she really wanted my grandparents to see it, since they aren't getting any younger, and that none have gotten to see any grandchildren get married yet.
1. My cousin Kristy got married when she was 16, she eloped with her 21 year old boyfriend. So my mom's parents didn't see it.
2. My cousin Jeffrey randomly married a hooker (seriously!) in Korea like 2 years ago (he's still there, but they're divorcing and he's marrying someone else apparently). So yeah, grandparents didn't see it.
3. My cousin Kimberly got married last summer in California (she lives there) and my mom's parents could not go.
4. I am the oldest on my father's side, everyone else is a minor, so therefore unlikely to get married anytime soon.
So I discussed it with Brad, and we moved the wedding back a day to accomodate everyone else, since the 11th is a friday and people may complain. So our wedding is now going to be on May 12th, the day after our 6 year anniversary. So all who were unhappy about not being able to go to the ceremony will be happy, since you're all invited now :)
So now the hard part, balancing the budget and figuring out who's in the wedding party. I need a maid of honor...stat! lol. Don't even get me started on finding a dress.
Ok...must breathe...I don't wanna become a bridezilla. Nor do I wana talk about it endlessly, but I don't have much time to do everything in, so I am probably going to end up ranting in here about it a lot. Sorry in advance.
Ooh, I sent in my transfer application to Mason tonight. Now all I gotta do is get lfcc to send my transcript tomorrow when I go to get my books for next semester and hopefully not worry about it anymore :)
I'm exhausted right now, but I've still got so much to do. I want to at least accomplish SOMETHING before I have to go back to school. Current Mood: crazy

|The end is in sight!
I think I am a little too excited for exam week, but as I've been doing well this semester I'm not stressing myself out over exams now. Instead I'm sooooooo happy that this semester is about over. I have so many things that I need to get done. I have no idea how I can accomplish all of this crap during the winter break, but oh well.
Since I'm moving out this summer, I need to figure out what I am taking with me. Most likely everything but my bed. Although I think I'll have to leave a lot of my childhood stuff here. ::Sniffs:: My memories will all be left to rot in my parents' basement :( In a perfect world I'd be able to take it with me, but I don't se how that will work as I'll most likely be limited with space.
Blah, my room is freezing cold. I should be fixing my poster for my Brit lit presentation tomorrow, but I don't want to get up to find the tape. I am so horrible, I keep getting distracted with stuff. I keep trying to get school work done, but then I always end up getting sidetracked and attempting to do some wedding planning. Which is going rather slowly as well. I only have a handful of months to accomplish everything. Brad and I decided on where we want to get married. It's really pretty. It has a little gazebo on top of a lake. I was surprised when Brad wanted that one since he can't swim and when we were at the beach, I tried getting him to go out onto the pier, but he was too scared.
This post is getting too long and I'm rambling. I need to go finish clearing out my emails. Current Mood: content

I'm not very happy with the classes I have to take next semester, but my schedule isn't so bad, so I'll deal.
This is what my schedule will be starting August 21st:
-Eng 243. Survey of English Literature 1. 1:30 PM- 2:45 PM. (I'm very excited about this class because the teacher I signed up for is awesome...so I'm told anyways. Also for the fact that I am sick of American literature. It's been over-exhausted in school).
-CSC 155. Computer Concepts and Applications. 9:30 AM-10:45 AM. (Not so excited for this one, since it seems rather tedious and boring, but it's required, what can ya do)
-Psy 230. Developmental Psychology. 12:30 PM-1:45 PM. (This actually sounds interesting to me, but that may be because I really enjoyed my last psychology class)
-Spa 101. Beginner's Spanish 5:00 PM-6:40 PM. (I don't really want to take this, but I need some sort of foreign language. I tried signing up for French... wasn't being offered this semester, nor was Italian or German. So Spanish it is I guess)
-Ped 109. Yoga. 9:30 AM-11:30 AM. I wanted aerobic fitness at first but they only had it available at some gym in warrenton, and I'd prefer to take the course actually at Lord Fairfax. So I guess I get 2 hours of attempting to stretch what my body does not want me to stretch. I can't even touch my toes. I'm gonna die :(
- Eng 243 from 1:30- 2:45 PM again.
Thursday: Exactly the same as Tuesday!
Friday: NOTHING muah ha.
So yeah. Exciting.
I also have next semester's classes mapped out. At least what I'll be taking. Now if I could just figure out what I'm gonna need to do in order to transfer. I still can't believe I've lived in this house for over a year now. Or that I'll be leaving it next summer and hopefully Brad and I will be moving in together. It'd be convenient for both of us, since he'd be moving closer to his work.
The house is so quiet with mikey gone. He went to sleep over at his friend's house. I've got to organize the clothes in my closet. They're mostly on the floor in there so I should hang them up. I also have to pack for the weekend because I leave for Manassas tomorrow. On Thursday I need to go in search of a present for my cousin Jamie. Friday I have Melanie's party to go to. Saturday I have to pick up my grandmother, aunt, and cousin who live in Centreville (London-Towne to be exact since Gennie will recognize the name) so I can take them back to my house for my aunt Cathy's baby shower. Then when the party is over I have to drive them back to their house in the ghetto. Sunday I think Brad wanted to see a movie or something, and I return home Monday again.

|Who the hell buys these?
I truly, truly despise the "kidzbop" franchise. The commercials are always sickening and disturbing. Why? Because of the songs they sing. They are hardly appropriate for kids to be singing AND the songs are usually the most annoying ones that have been overplayed. I just don't want to hear them anymore, especially when little kids are singing them...that makes it 50x worse.
I mean look at the latest listing for Kidzbop 10 (joy...10 of them)
2. Bad Day
3. Dance, Dance
4. Because Of You
5. Move Along
7. Be Without You
9. You're Beautiful
10. Pump It
11. Where'd You Go?
12. Savin' Me
13. Hung Up
14. What's Left Of Me
15. Girl Next Door
16. The Pussycat Dolls: Stickwitu
17. Who Says You Can't Go Home
18. Don't Forget About Us

|5 ans pour le camel et moi!
It feels good to have nothing to do. I finished my last exam last Thursday morning! I would have pics of my happy dance at being done with exams, but the stress from school along with the arrival of my period has done a number on my face and made me break out. So yeah, no pics for now.
My past week has been spent at Brad's from Friday until Monday morning. Monday, when I came home I actually CLEANED my room, and I now have a floor again. Tuesday I lounged around until the season finale of Veronica Mars (and since then I have rewatched it about 4 more times...it was that good). Yesterday I babysat Matthew while my mother had an appointment with the womanly doctor. I played some DDR (I borrowed Brad's playstation and the game on Monday) and did pretty good.
I also checked my grades for my classes and was soooooo happy! I got an A in my History class, Biology, and Geography. I got a B in English (because I didn't like that class, or the teacher, so I skipped it alot) and in Statistics...which I was the most excited about. It was crap. I thought I was going to fail it for sure. So my GPA went down a little since I had one less class this semester and one less A, but not enough to kick me out of the Phi Theta Kappa. I had a 3.8, and now I have a 3.7. Not bad for taking a year off from school I think.
Today and on is going to be the best part of the week though. Today is my 5 year anniversary with Brad (eeek where has the time gone???) and we're going to Busch Gardens this weekend. So I should be packing but I feel lazy right now.

|I must be crazy....
buuuuuuuttt, I am debating whether I should apply for a part-time summer position at the Borders in Warrenton. I don't want to be stuck in the house all day, and I'll get money to feed my makeup adiction, but blah. Borders again? I mean I'm not gonna apply for the same position I had before, IPT sucks, but it'll still be easy and I won't have to think (which my brain NEEDS a break).
I'm torn, I don't like any of the other options around here (There's really nothing but restaurants, and other random shops) but I don't want to go apply, and they ask me to go on IPT because I had experience with that and not cashier etc. Oh well. I guess I'll apply, and if they want me to be on IPT I'll say no, and be a professional bum for the summer.
So yeah, the next time you see someone on the side of the road with a squeegee, it could be me. Current Mood: sick
|Victory is mine!!!
I am sooooooooooo happy that my papers are almost done. I finished the two big ones, the History paper and the English research paper.
I only need about 2 more paragraphs on my bio paper and then it will be done too!
Blah, I still have to find the time to study for my Geography test Tuesday night, and then my Bio exam on Wednesday, and the my Statistics test on Thursday. But after that......I don't have anything to stress about for TWO WHOLE WEEKS!!!
So to celebrate Brad and I are going to make a little trip to Luray caverns this Saturday. I haven't been there in like 3 years, so it'll be nice.
I can't believe how close it is til the end of my classes, they end like April 27th, and my exams are the first week of May THEN I AM DONE....until next August, sigh. Oh well, at least I won't have to take colege comp any more, I am sick to death of writing on boring subject (I hate you William Faulkner, you are lucky you're already dead)
I need to update my pictures of my makeup collection, as I have aquired more than was last pictured (oh how I love discounted makeup and the cco), but I think I'll wait until Sweetie Cake comes out and I get what I want from that before I post more pics.
Well I think I should get to bed, so I can make it to Bio in the morning, as I don't want to miss the last bit of my notes before the exam on Wed. Current Mood: Evil
|Thursday, March 23rd, 2006|
So I am still working on the paper, which is verrrrry slow going.
So of course instead of writing I am posting an update here. Which I don't really know why, considering nothing of interest has happened in the past 24 hours. I haven't left my house. Nothing has changed. I am so boring.
Oh well, then I guess I will talk about what will happen instead of what has already happened. I can't believe that in 50 days I'll be celebrating my 5 year anniversary. That's craziness. And it makes me feel old. My youth...she's gone...ack.
Almost done with this semester, so close to it ending I can taste it! At least I won't be as stressed as I have been after April 5th. I can concentrate on less academic things and more things involving sleep.
Man, I need to stop stress eating, I am developing some major stomach pudge. Which just means I need to look for a bathing suit to hide it for this summer. Oh well, I'm not gonna worry about my pudge anyways, it's normal. Deal.
I haven't done my makeup in forever. I just don't have time for it lately. Plus I really hate my hair right now. It's at a stage where it's not short anymore, but it is still above my shoulders. I just want it to grow dammit. I really want to dye it darker again, but I don't know. It was too dark for like a month before it turned into the color I liked. I think I'll wait til my hair is longer before I dye it.
I should pack my things but I haven't decided whether I am gonna trek to Manassas tomorrow or Friday yet. It all depends on whether I finish this I guess. I need 1 and a half more pages, but THIS PAPER IS SATAN! Seriously, it's so hard to concentrate on it.
I HATE YOU WILLIAM FAULKNER. I hope you are happy with subjecting me to the torture of writing a 6 page paper on the crappy thesis I was stuck with. I can't find enough information on it, and I feel my paper is subpar, and I am such an obsessive compulsive person that I can't do ANYTHING half-assed.
ok, must calm down....I guess I should actually get back it writing the damn paper instead of complaining about it. Current Mood: cold

|I feel overwhelmed
I don't know why I am spazzing as I know I have enough time to do all my work, it's just my nature I guess.
I have 3 papers due all around the same time. 2 are due on April 4th, and one is due on the 5th.
My rough draft for my English research paper is due the evening of the 27th, and I am halfway done writing it right now.
Then I need to work on my history paper, which like the English paper has to be 6 pages long.
The easiest paper I have is my bio paper, due the 5th, and only needs to be 2 pages long.
I will be sooooooooo grateful when my "hell week" is over, because after that I don't have anything big except for some sporadic testing and a genealogy project, which isn't graded, but only has to be done as best as we can manage.
After these papers, I'm gonna need some serious retail therapy. Luckily April has a pretty eyeshadow quad coming out. I &hearts you sweetie cake.
I'm so happy Brad got his new job, because this means he has "normal people" hours and we can actually talk on the phone again. The only downside is he now wakes up earlier than I do, and when I visit him Thursday-Sunday, I will most likely be interfering with his sleeping schedule. That and the fa OOOOWWWWWWWWWWW I just got the world's worst foot cramp. I had to stand up and run around my room (which didn't go very well since it is ridiculously messy) to try and get it to go away. Where was I.....Oh that and the fact that he doesn't have Fridays off anymore, but oh well, I'm still gonna begin my visit Thursday nights.
I should go to sleep but I want to work a little more on my English paper. I know no one cares, but I must keep writing in here, because I don't really want to write my paper I just know that I need to...so my paper is on A rose for Emily. I had read it before, and it was weird then and it's weird now. It involves hinted at necrophilia and a crazy lady who murders her "suitor" because "he's not the marrying type" which some people interpret his character to be gay cuz of his last name, and other random things. And Emily was afraid of being alone, so she poisoned him, and slept with him.
ooooh I just realized it's wednesday.......new episode of veronica mars... Je suis...excited...don't remember the word and don't care. Although I'm tired of this Hannah chick, can she go away now? Please?
I am freezing, I'm debating just going to bed so I can be warm. I dunno. I am sad that my sims game will not work on my computer for some reason, but it works on Brad's. Brad and I were playing it a few weeks ago, and we made ourselves and opened two businesses. It was the funniest thing, because my sim was pregnant and Brad was controlling them and he decided to make my sim eat cheesecake because it sounded good to him at the time I guess. So anyways when my sim gave birth, it said there were twins and Brad was freaking out because he is incapable of caring for one sim child (I'm just kidding...I hope so anyway, cuz if our "children" are gone when I get there this week i'll be pissed)but later we found out that cheesecake increases the chances of twins. And then I laughed at him and his failure, and then asked him if he still wanted to eat some cheesecake. He didn't. Since then I have tortured him by making us have 2 more sets of twins. It was hilarious.
I made cookies earlier to procrastinate from my paper, and while I was waiting for them to bake I broke out my Chobits and started reading them again. I also watched an episode of salute your shorts with mikey on you tube. They need to make all the old school nickelodeon stuff into dvd collections. That's my youth...I need them.
I think i've run out of things to say for now, but never fear there's always tommorrow, when I will most certainly be procrastinating from this paper again. Current Mood: Highly Caffeinated

Yesterday was fun, I went sledding in our yard with Matthew. There's this little spot on the side of our house that is perfect for sledding (as long as you stop the sled in time before you reach the pond).
I am happy cuz I am posting this from the privacy of my own room. I am now the proud owner of a computer that has internet. hurrah. This means I can update my pictures for once. So pics of my room/house are to come. Current Mood: drained

Why is it that all the bad things in life happen in clumps?
I have so many things to worry about, and my brain has the inability to process them right now. I can't concentrate, so working on my Robert Frost analysis crap is out of the question. I don't even want to think about studying for my history exam on tues.
Blah. I hate feeling like I am not in control.
Time you are my foil, I can't believe it's already 10:41. Where has my day gone? Current Mood: tired
