8:41 am - Snow day!
I'm so cold! It snowed major last night, and I was stuck at work just watching it fall down around all the cars in the parking lot until 10... but we have no school! I guess that's a plus. I really don't like the snow much, unless I'm skiing. Well, it does give me time to write my position papers (which I am precrasitnating from right now...) Oh well! I have a real urge to sit down and play a game of Monopoly. Maybe Nessa can walk over here and play a round of Monopoly with me. I would asks my bro's but Jimmy cheets and John has no idea how to play. That was random. I concluded that my brain has frozen along with my body.

current mood: frozen!

8:03 pm - SAT is over!! woooooooooooooohooooooooo!
Oh dear. It's over. I took it. The evil SAT. All I can say is it's over.


It's sooooooooooo cold in here. ::shiver::

Anyway, after the dreaded test, mom and I had a "bonding" day. Jim, John and dad went skiing (and left me to take the SAT... grrrr) sooooo... mom and I went to Boarders bookstore, bought some books like "B...something's Guide to Collage", went out to eat and saw "Calendar Girls" (which was really, really cute). It was an awesome day. When I got home, I found out I got into the Sourland Hills Actors Guild show "It Was a Dark and Stormy Night" I got "Jane Adams" and my director said it’s a challenging adults roll and it will be a lot of work but they “know I can handle the challenge.” I’m excited. I haven’t been in a play in more than a year!

I’m so glad the SAT is over...

by the way, winter break was awsome!

I'm sooooooooooooooo bad at this online journal thing. Maybe because I'm waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too busy right now. Well... not just right now, for like the past 3 months. Sad. And I'm really not that busy, in theory, (I guess...) No, really. I only just had all this governors school stuff to do (make a movie, write some scripts and 2 essays..) I had to figure out how not to fail math, (one of the hardest things I've ever done, but I didn't fail! weeeeee!) get to work without missing lacrosse, school stuff and all sorts of other -ish.

I'm smack dab in the middle of midterms now and tomorrow I'm taking the SAT. After this week I can take a breather. A well deserved breather. I have a new marking period and a new chance and a clean slate. That will be nice. Really nice. It's this next season that's really going to mess me up. I've got lacrosse, work, RMC and JHUMUNC and school. SO... It's going to be... go to lacrosse...go directly to work...go home...do homework... go to sleep at like 3...

I just realized... I complain waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to much. Oh well. I don't need to worry about that stuff right now, do I? ::takes deep, calming breath::

Next step, taking the SAT.

7:44 pm - Lots of stuff!
Happy Thanksgiving!! The whole family spent the day in the kitchen cooking and eating. Just all around “family bonding.” I feel like I’m going to pop from eating so much today!! Wrote my Governors School essays today. Yeah. Fun stuff.

We’ve had half days of school for the past few days and yesterday when I came home we all pilled in the car and headed into NYC to see the Macy’s balloons get blown up. I've never been that close to the parade balloons before. I usually don't get into the Christmas spirit this early in the holiday season, but just seeing everyone in NYC running around amidst an array of Christmas decorations... The atmosphere could really get anyone in the spirit. Yesterday convinced me how truly beautiful NYC is. We walked around central park in heavy jackets, looked at the windows on 5th avenue and stopped for dinner in a delightfully tacky Mexican restaurant. It was just an awesome day.

Earlier this week I came back from RUMUN 2003 which totally ROCKED!! I had such an awesome time! I couldn't have imagined going on a conference with a cooler group of people. And despite obstacles I accomplished my ultimate goal. Some stuff I learned...

1. How to write really comprehensive resolutions. You learn really quickly how to write a proper resolution when your in committee for 9 hours a day.

2. How to be a mentor. It was really different teaching someone all about committee and it goings when they have never been to a UN meeting while planning on what, when and how to say what was needed to be said. After this conference I have a new found respect of the job that our HHS mentors hold.

3. Always try to compromise. Have a list of things your country MUST accomplish in a resolution and stick to those objectives but work others views into said resolution (as long as they don’t compromise the effectiveness of your objectives. )

4. ALWAYS wear a watch. I took of my watch the day after I came back after becoming absolutely dependant on it over the weekend and I about lost what little sanity I had left.

5. When your France, be as arrogant as you want regarding chemical weapons and their destruction because we don’t have any! I LOVE FRANCE!! Bwhahahahaha!!!

Hmmm... random stuff I’ve done between RUMUN and today.
Went to work on Monday, don’t work again ‘till Friday. Lifted more 20lb frozen turkeys than I’ve seen in my lifetime. Most of them just fell over when I put them in the plastic bags... but oh well.
Volunteered to help build the HHS patio which was actually really fun.


Gunna getting up early tomorrow to hit door buster sales with mom.

That’s my life at this point.

10:53 pm - Viking? Oh well!
My fortune for today according to my start page at excite.com...

You aspire to be a Viking.

Wow. That's really random.

Today was a good day. Went to visit the one and only COOLEST person ever, Tiffy, (who else?) after school today. Me, Kelly, Kelli, Nessa and Tiff watched "Finding Nemo" and ate cookies and popcorn! WEE!! It rocked. Went home, then went to see "Runaway Jury" with Lazar and Bean. The movie was AWESOME, but Mel and Bean thought it was boring and kept falling asleep. Hey, I thought it was wonderful and everyone should run out and see it (not just old people...). Then we went to Apple bees and had dessert. Technically I didn't eat dinner tonight... but I've had enough cookies, ice cream and popcorn to last a looooooooong time. I love hanging out with my girls!! It's so therapeutic to just sit around and gossip and watch movies. I need days where I sit and eat junk food and watch movies every once in a while. It is really relaxing to just go out with people you know and love and just be yourself. It’s really late, and I’m in the mood to take some Tylenol PM, do some meditation and sleep until 9am tomorrow. Goodnight.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Refreshed!

First day of a new marking period. It feels good to have a clean slate in front of me. No mess ups, no grades to fix, clean slate. It's nice. I did pretty good this marking period. Good stuff. Just signed up for the SATs and I'm taking body shots to send away today. Lot's of homework, lot's of stuff to do. Yeah, that's it. I'm feeling kind of lonely. I've been so anti-social lately. I've got so much to do that I've lost touch with my friends. I've lost touch with most of the things I enjoy, and the place has been filled by work and school work. I just need someone to talk to.

current mood: lonely

8:34 am - Sick
I'm sick. Really sick. It's a glorious 4 day weekend, and I've spent it lying on the couch, being sick. I couldn't eat yesterday. When I finally got up the strength to get up to get some water, it was 4pm. I lost a total of 5 lbs between yesterday and today. Not fair. First weekend where I can relax, no papers to write, and I spent the first 24 hours in bed.

current mood: sick

Weird things I rung up at Path mark this evening...

1. Cat's milk (milk for cats or milk from cats?)

2. Vegetarian eggs (hold up. How can eggs be vegetarian?)

3. A Christmas gift bag (I know it's cold, but It’s just a tad early!)

Oh the weird things people buy!

Wow. I should be fired from this online journal thing... I haven't written since October 7th... sad. Let's see, what did I do for the last 12 days. Sleep, wake up, go to school, go to work, do homework, sleep. Yeah. That's it. Really, my life IS interesting... I just forget what specifically happens EVERYDAY after a few weeks! (or maybe I just don’t want to expose any specifics...) So let's recap this weekend instead of going thought the painstaking details of the past 12 days!

Friday went to the football game with Jeremy. He picked me up after work. Raiders lost, but I had fun! After, he came over and we talked until 12. Went to sleep at 1:30am.

Next day, Saturday, the family and I went to the Far Hills horse races! Had to get up really early to get to the races. I have become addicted to gambling. I went to the races with 10 dollars in singles, and left with 37! I won 4 out of the 6 races I betted on, cool. Not only am I addicted, I rock! After my winning streak, (woo hoo!) we went back the people who invited us to the races’ house (I mean MANSION) we stayed until 3:00am. Their house is huge! There was no one my age there so I ended up talking to the adults. I love talking with people who are older that me. I’ve found that they are so insightful. But I’ve also found out that adults are just little kids in adult bodies. AND I've also, also found that DDR and adult generally don't mix very well, but "drunk and overly tired" adults playing DDR in absolutely HILARIOUS!!

Today was the HHS debate rummage sale! I went at 5am to set up. After my total ONE HOUR of sleep the night before, I was running on NOTHING! Sleep deprivation makes me overly hyper. It was an awesome time.

Yeah. That was my weekend. And I'm not telling you about my week! (because you don't need to know!) Ah HA!

(man, I can't sleep.)

3:46 pm - Hurrah for random weekend excursions!
Wow. This is one random last day of the 4 day weekend. Jim, John, Mom and I went to the 3M rock quarry in Bell Mead and took the quarry tour. Who ever thought we had a rock quarry so close? They crush rocks to tinny granules and then put a colored ceramic coating on them. The colored granules supply the coating that shingles have on them. The rocks are the colored coating on asphalt roof shingles! I never knew that! This quarry supplies the granules for the entire northwest. The quarry was amazing! Breathtakingly beautiful and very deep. I think the deepest it went was 800ft or something! I’m working at 4:30 and I need to take a shower because I'm covered in rock dust! Hurrah for random weekend excursions!

current mood: good

9:40 pm - It's officially fall!
Today, my brothers, mom and Laura Z and I went...
APPLE PICKING! It's officially fall when the Lorenzes go apple picking! After, I went to Laura's house and played DDRMAX2 then went to work. I just got back from work and I have a piece of apple pie waiting for me on the kitchen table. Many of my internal emotions have been tested today and I can't express the confusion I feel right now. Let's just leave it at that.

6:09 pm - ASSume
Oh gosh, I'm so embarrassed and ashamed! Here's the story,

I'm over at Mel's house doing our English project, when I get a call from my mom. She tells me my boss just called and I was supposed to be at work at 1pm, that was 2 hours ago. Since it's my first week, I totally missed Sunday on the schedule. I'm so embarrassed. I called my boss and she said that it was ok, me being new, but it shouldn't ever happen again. This is not like me at all. Lately I've had a lot on my mind and I've been really forgetful and preoccupied. I just can't believe I missed it on the schedule!! I'm mad at myself for being so stupid and not asking if there was a schedule for Sunday, and I'm scared to face my boss on Tuesday. But as the old saying goes, "Don't assume, you'll make and ASS out of U and ME" and do I feel like an ass.

current mood: embarrassed

9:25 am - Tylenol PM!
I'm totally wiped out. This weekend, or at least the first two days (Friday and Sat.) have been the packed with activates. I'm physically drained. Friday was Nikki Singers birthday party. Now THAT was an event! Nikki, your parties ROCK! Saturday had work form 10am-2pm. I'm now on my own register! YES! At 3pm, I babysat until 11pm for a 2 year old and a 4 year old. The four year old couldn't get to the bathroom on time and had an accident all over me, the rug, and his pants. Then they spilled red Gatorade all over the carpet. It was so frustrating and difficult! But I got though it, came home, took 2 Tylenol pm and crashed. Now I'm up watching John and doing RUMUN research in my pajamas. I'm still feeling the sleepy Tylenol cloud over my body. Yes! I love being lazy and slow!

Have I ever said how much I adore the weekend? Well I do. I went to my job training at Path mark on Thursday, and was brainwashed by the extraordinarily, old, outdated training video featuring a talking fish head. Yep. Friday I had absolutely nothing to do. So I had myself a spa night. I took a long bath and used some of my massage training! Lovely! Saturday me and the family went boating at lake Hopatcong. Mitch came along. Mitch is the best water-skier around my age that I know! The water was really cold, but fall water is like that. Did some kneeboarding. My arms are sore. At 4:44pm (deliciously random isn't it?) I went to Nikki's 16th b-day! I have one random phrase to describe the random nature of this event, Guys in dresses. Now that that's out of the way... Today, my RUMUN partner, Katie Marano, came over to disuse our chemical weapons! (that's our committee, we didn't just randomly talk about chemical weapons) I'm convinced that Katie M. Is the COOLEST freshman EVER! And she's my freshman! All mine! Mwahahaha! Then, it was off to Melissa Lazar's house to start our Huck Finn English project. Our 3rd group member never showed, so we ended up doing the first part of our English project movie. Melissa dressed as "Huckaberta Finn" (which so happens to be the female counterpart of Huckleberry Finn) complete with straw hat and bare feet! Great! And now I'm here. Weekends rock!

8:43 am - Eyes.
I have an eye infection. So I have to stay home until I can go to the doctor. I haven't worn my glasses for like 2 years and I had a real hard time finding them today. I had to keep a wash cloth over my eye and search EVERYWHERE for my glasses. I have really bad eyesight without ether my glasses or contacts so I was bumping into things and knocking things over. I finally found them under my bed. Yeah. I'm really bored. I don't feel that bad, except for the constant pain in the corner of my left eye. I got my permit in the mail yesterday, but I can’t go out driving until I get over this infection thing. Stupid infection. Stupid glasses. Oh well. At least I have eyes! I couldn't imagine living without my vision. The worlds beauty is best expressed though the sense of site. It's absolutely amazing. It's a phenomenon of life. It's the last thing I would give up. I live with limited sight and it's a miracle of science that I'm able to correct that discrepancy in my genetic make up. The sense of touch is a close second. Feeling a loving embrace and seeing a comforting face when you're down or depressed can make all the difference in the world.

6:11 pm - Mmmm... cowboys
I have nothing to do. All my homework is done. Just relaxing and watching CMT. While I was watching the top 20 country music videos, I came to one conclusion, cowboys are HOT! Not just hot, BLAZING! Country music get such a bad rap here in NJ, but it ROCKS! Nothing is hotter that a hardworking cowboy in a black tank top, worn out jeans, cowboy hat, great arms and six pack abs! NOTHING!! Oh baby! I love CMT! Now if I could only find a sexy cowboy who’s into world politics and water skiing I’d be set for life! I’m I asking for too much? Nah! I’m totally convinced I’m in the wrong part of the country to be running into cowboys though... anyway. It’s sad when the highlight of your day is watching the country music channel. SAVE ME!
