5:12 pm - wheehehehehe
yes! still totally awake and active! I'm taking advantage of it considering none of it will be left tomorrow and I'll be tired as hell. oh, well. day was good despite boring classes....I love TylenolPM...

my mom thinks my sister is on drugs, which I find kind of amusing, but then again I'm starting to think that it might be true. she always struck me as the kind of person who was just kinda bitchy, but still didn't do drugs. oh, well. I'm supposed to do detective work for my mother to find out if Amy really is smoking pot or doing something else. I really hate this. my mom has elected me to do her dirty work and sneak around Amy's room to see if I can find anything. damn it! Just because I've accidentally let some stupid little secrets slip in the past, does not mean I'm an investigation puppet. yeah, it's a concern if Amy is pothead, but I don't like being used like this.

12:57 pm - lewd dancing and rambunctious behavior
so, homecoming. I must say that I had a blast. this was the best homecoming I've ever been to, but then again the only other one I went to was my freshman dance, which sucked hugely. went over to bri's house around 5:30ish to get ready and beautify myself. took pictures of bri's little sister(she is so damn cute!) and then went to go pick up nadia.
oh, I can add an accomplishment to my list of minor successes...I drove down I-4 in heels and I didn't cuss or yell a whole lot. I'm very proud of myself.
anyway, danced pretty much the whole time we were there, and my legs are killing me now, but I had fun, so I don't care. once the dance was over, we headed over to shelley's for a little after hours partying. by the way, shelley, thanks so much for letting me come over. i hope we didn't annoy you too much. got a total of 2 hours of sleep or less...don't really know how much exactly. oh, well. my mother is expecting me to pass out at any moment, but unfortunatly I'm much to awake to fall asleep...damn it, that means I'll have a LOT of trouble getting out of bed tomorrow morning. oh, well. it was worth it. eating onion rings from burger king at the moment(absolutely LOVE their onion ring sauce) because my family just loves me like that. so, yeah that's about it.

current mood: sleep deprived

6:27 pm - hey, timmy, how about another round of useless shit
it seems that I have a problem remembering to update. oh, well.

had an interesting dream last night. it invovled a friend being engaged to some guy she'd never met before. and for some reason I was supposed to find out information on him for her. I remember looking at a paper in the dream, and apparently the guy's name was Stefan Sean Beng...what an unusual name. but, hey, the two made it work out b/c they seemed to have a lot in common in my dream...yeah...
ooh, reading Relic by: Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. 'tis good so far.
gonna wear my glow-in-the-dark spider tights tomorrow. I'm very excited.

ok, that's about it for now. should probably get started on my reading for that damn anatomy & physiology presentation...damn krolik...

current mood: lazy
current music: John Lennon, of course

4:25 pm - bum bum bum bum bum
(sigh) its only what? the third/fourth week of school and I already feel like it's an endless cycle of nothing. I usually wait until half the year is over before I feel like that. hmm...must be a good sign but not. oh, got another hole punched into each ear yesterday. i'm very excited about that. i'll wait until the six weeks is up before I go to get my fourth piercing on the bottom of both ears. got to go out w/ Briana Jones yesterday afternoon. twas very fun. I haven't gotten to see her in the longest time and we went driving all over Maitland. and yes! I get to go to a concert w/ her next Saturday, which reminds me I have to call her on Wed.
I had an Edward Furlong movie fest last night. (sigh) I love him. watched: Pecker, The Animal Factory, and Detroit Rock City. those films really cheered me up.

current mood: depressed

8:59 pm - people are very odd
well the three day weekend only felt like two days to me, but oh well. it was kinda interesting anyways. on saturday nadia and I went to the winter park village to see a movie, Freaky Friday(it was actually better than i thought it was going to be), and we saw patrick there. no, not the blonde cheerleader, chorus patrick, this was a guy we'd met there before. he kinda reminded me of the dude from Hocus Pocus, and I liked him. and the best part is that now he thinks nadia and I are annoying as hell. eh, he was a loser. but anyway, I found out Danny was home for the week and I was a little hesitant. he's the 17 year old son of my mom's co-worker and he's been *ahem* going somewhere "distant" for schooling. let me just say, I have never been THAT nervous around a guy before. the family and I went over to his house for a BBQ and I hate having to chat w/ a group of strangers I don't know. but hey, apparently he does too, so I got points for being able to get us out of there(extremely grateful to the powers that be for my car). unfortunatly, that was w/out a doubt the quietest car ride I have ever had. neither of us knew what to talk about, so most of the ride was spent in awkward silence. holy shit, I don't know if we have a lot in common or not, but I still LIKE him anyway. oh well. at the moment I REALLY hate guys.

8:32 pm - brush up on your medieval torture methods
he cornered me. I could feel the Jaws theme song in the back of my head, and then he said it.."I've been thinking about going to Immokalee this weekend." Death grip. Luckily, I managed to postpone the trip to my grandparents until next weekend. I just don't think I'll have an excuse for not being able to go next week. Damn it! oh, well. At least I'll be able to keep my three day weekend Hell-free.

3:51 pm - hair? check. makeup? check. cleavage? check. okay, let's go get some free stuff.
went out w/ nadia and kaitlyn after school yesterday. our adventure kind of became a man and job hunt. gave my number to this guy named patrick who works at the movie theater in the winter park village. don't know why i did that. oh well, but damn the cheesecake factory for "not hiring right now." eh, I probably wouldn't have been a very good employee anyway w/ all that heavenly cheesecake in front of me all day. the mall was boring, but then again I'm not a big fan of the mall, so i guess there's a reason for being bored.

...and no call from patrick either. oh well

10:26 pm - erase your frustrations with your very own ZAP-STRESS for only $19.99! call today
traffic has a mind of its own. its state of being: to wreak havoc and annoy. but caring takes to much energy. i have the sudden urge to play pool for some reason. damn, its' too late to go out to a pub/billiard.

the highway leads to happiness,
jump gaily to your good fortune.
the road will take you to mediocrity,
follow your doubts to uncertainty.
the path ends in utter melancholy,
stumble along to find your despair.
choose the street of fate you wish,
to take your everlasting existence in hand.

11:53 am - i'm sure there's a reason why life can't just be all fun and games
friday afternoon-
drove to the fashion square mall(not really sure why) w/ nadia and ashley after taking $20 from nadia's mom. pretty much just walked around before going to chick-fil-a for feeding time. ya know, their chicken nuggets are only about the size of quarter, but hey it was chicken so it was still good. bought some "beatles" and 80's sunglasses from the dollar store. then went into Dillard's and walked all over the store about 10 min before finding the dresses. yeah, we just took a bunch of prom dresses off the racks and tried 'em on. it would've been better if that one sales woman hadn't followed us around the whole time. oh, well.
we then decided to go to the winter park village. took us a while to get there b/c of: nadia and ashley saw a group of about ten real punks and made me turn around and pull into a 7-eleven so we could catch up w/ them. oh well. it was fun, but the best part was when nadia spilled slurpee all over ashley's bassoon case. anyway, there were a couple of guys playing a guitar and bongo drums, who we watched for a while. they played songs people requested, but i got annoyed when they didn't play john lennon. oh well. followed this group of people into the cheesecake factory. one guy in the group turned out to be beyond creepy and we all wished he would just suddenly dissolve from existence. the only good thing from that little adventure was that we bought 2 pieces of cheesecake and ate them on the way to ashley's house. god, i love cheesecake. that must be the reason why people are here on earth, just so we can eat cheesecake(loving sigh). i love cheesecake. we had a vanilla bean slice and a snickers slice. mmm...heaven on a plate. i love cheesecake. ok, right back to the drive to ashley's house, nadia called 105.1 to make a request for Cyndi Lauper's True Colors, but i think the guy she talked to didn't make a note of the song, b/c we never heard it. however, i did hear Girls Just Wanna Have Fun right when i got home. oh, well. it was all good fun.

helped my cousin rachel move into her new apartment. it wasn't too bad considering i got a free pizza out of it.
Night of Cabaret was great. hats off to elliott for a job well done.

have a bit of a headache and feel just a little dizzy, but i get to just lounge around the house today, so its okay.

9:35 pm - no time for life
damn, another completely filled weekend. first, to UCF on saturday morning to help Rachel and her friend Kelly move into their apartment, and then Night of Cabaret, which Elliott is in, at 6:30(note to self- pick nadia up). i was told today that we're going to Eustis on sunday for my little cousin's birthday...god, i hope those dogs aren't there. actually, i shouldn't say dogs...bears is a more correct term. (shudder) just please let them be outside while we're there. please, oh, please, oh, please. all i know is that i'm NEVER getting a Newfoundland.

5:25 pm - last week of summer vacation (sigh)
wow I don't update often...huh oh well.

moving on. my last week of summer vacation is going to be/has been/will be a busy/weird/fun/sad one. let me catch ya up on what has been going on lately. Last Wednesday two men my family knew died. one of them was my aunt's father and the other one was one of my mom's co-workers. We're going to the memorial(he's being cremated, so there won't be a funeral) for Mr. Terry(aunt's dad) on Saturday, which just happens to be the day before school about going back to school on a happy note.

anyway, this past weekend was spent in Tampa visiting family because my Aunt Jean(not the daughter of Mr. Terry) had a heart scan. The idiot doctor made her have one because of her stress test results. well, there wasn't any reason for her to have any work done because her heart and arteries are in good working order.

oh, the parentals bought a new car for my dad, so I get to drive his old car. yay! I'm very happy and excited about that. yes, and the other only good news is that my sister and I have tickets to Universal Studios, so we're going to have a little last bit of fun tomorrow before the freedom of summer is gone.

i found my sketchbook last was missing for a couple of months. it was hiding at the bottom of my trunk.
ok, I think thats just about everything...yup, yup it is

3:40 pm - 2 apples a day will make you hiccup...
i found that out the hard way this afternoon...oh well...

as you can tell i'm back from the vacation to the beach. we actually got back about two weeks ago. but (shrug) this was just the time i actually felt like typing. anyway, Madeira beach was beautiful. the water was always warm but not to the point of unpleasantness. but the best news of all was that i didn't get a sunburn! i'm very proud of myself.

oh, i got the best shirt of all time the day before yesterday! it's black w/ a large pic of John Lennon on the front and some lyrics from the song Imagine on the back. i LOVE it! its now my favorite piece of clothing

current mood: chipper

2:53 pm - going, going, gone...
...taking a break from packing and cleaning. We're going to St. Pete beach for the next week, and while we're there we're going to have a mini family reunion. Yay! Lucky me! At least I know how to handle the family. Oh, well. The good thing is that SOME of my relatives won't be there. Hopefully, I'll get a tan, so I won't look as pale. Oh, well. Bye bye, my friends!

6:39 pm - did you see that little flying thing go zooming by? apparently, that was time...
the week has gone by so fast. i didn't even realize until a couple hours ago that tomorrow was the fourth of July, but anyway at least I'm reading again. I'm very disappointed with myself. I wasn't reading at all during June. it got to the point where I just didn't feel like reading. I can't believe myself! Fortunately, I'm trying to make up for lost time right now...I've been on a reading binge.

oh, I saw a something yesterday that I never thought was possible. my father and I went to the used book store, expecting to come out with a pile of paperbacks, but when we looked around the shop, we realized that the shelves were basically barren! I was stunned. yes, they had a few books scattered about, but they of course weren't at all what I was looking for. the owners told us that they were "restocking." i found this completely odd considering they had taken every book off of its shelf and put it in the backroom. they were already bringing boxes of books out of storage while we were looking through their measly selection. unfortunately, the majority of those books were romance novels. honestly! all i want is a good fantasy/science fiction novel at a cheap price, but now I'm deprived of even least for a week(amount of time all of their books will be out on the shelves again, or so they say)...sigh...oh, well...i can survive a week...i think...

current mood: ditzy

7:12 pm - same nonsense over and over again
you know what's funny? when a person tells you they'll do something, but of course they never do. (hollow laugh) heh heh. god damn it! i hate people. i seriously do. and then its the same people who make false promises that ask you why you're so shy and quiet, or in some cases anti-social. the world is overflowing with ignorant asses. and yet i still feel kind of ignored...oh,'s not like any of this makes a difference anyway...

current mood: tired

(stick your head in the fountain)

6:56 pm - strange things are afoot...
today was my last day of volunteering! yes! the parentals have also left the house to my sister and me. they left this afternoon and should be coming back tomorrow around noonish. i must say, freedom feels SO strange. never felt independent before, but i loovvee it...

the little one who people say looks like me has gone out to see a movie with a friend. they went to see the new Charlie's Angels flick (gack!)...and she actually asked me if i wanted to come along, which i must say surprised me greatly...i think she was just trying to get on my good side so i would drop her off at the theatre...oh, well...i don't really's not like i have anything else to do...

current mood: dazed and amazed
