Worked today 12-8...and you know that was fun! Went out with the ladies-- Molly, Annie, Brittany, Ariel and had some margaritas and octanes along with some booty dancin and clubbin...hehe we had fun what can I say? Dave Cox, one of the big guys at Isle of Capri picked up our tab, so once again, FREE drinks! I gotta say I love being a female so we can use you men for all you're worth ;) hehe I'm only playing. Anyway so we went to the Sandbar but we didn't stay there long because there was no one there...and I can safely say that I was a bit embarrassed when I was carded for alcohol (I can't ever remember being carded), but it didn't matter because they let me drink anyway. So Molly and I split from the girls because we just wanted to hang out and not drink anymore. You all know me..not my most favorite thing to just get drunk for no reason...so we walked along the beach for a few blocks. It was great...very relaxing. Then we called and talked to Tom and he was laughing at us the whole time because he thought we were plastered, but we weren't you meanie..who ever said a few drinks would kill ya!? and who is the one who wants me to come see him on Sunday? Uh huh that's what I thought! So no work tomorrow, get paid tomorrow!!, dinner at Isle of Capri with the people I love the most tomorrow night, a hot date with Will, work 730-330 on Saturday, Partay at Molly's, Sunday work 9-5 and then Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban...mmm mmm mmm!! So excited! I'll write soon...sweet dreams xoxo

Today was a normal day....internship 9-12, work 3-8...yay...haha and then I came home and watched a movie with Katie and Ange..How to lose a guy in ten days...it was such a good movie..I laughed the whole time..oh wait a minute, I always do that! ;) Anyway, not much going on really...my friend Will is having this party this weekend and so we'll see...he wants me to go...but I know Molly is also having people over, so I invited him there-so I'll guess we'll see where I end up. I don't know, he seems to get on some of my friends' nerves, but I don't know why...he's a good kid. Anyway, can't make people like ya so I guess you should never try! :) Really excited about Friday night...I am going to Isle of Capri, and it's one of my favorites...as long as it's not a table by the window (bad luck). ;) We are taking my aunt that is here from Baton Rouge--she's not quite used to Italians...hehe...she's on my mom's side and is VERY southern..those southern belles just rock my socks though..they are so cute-but I sure hope she enjoys it because I'll be getting my manicotti....mmmm! Talked to John-o today, I really miss my New Yawker...but hopefully he'll get off the island and meet me halfway sometime soon....and I hope his girlfriend Tatiana comes too because I love her...she is the greatest...she's really good for him which is a great thing because John and I always make sure we are with someone deserving of us...that's how we do it (he thinks I am lyring to him and that I am really from the island). I also talked to Amy, Emmy, and Chris and we are most definitely going to see Kenny this Sunday and I am bringing my concert buddy Katie....Chris is bringing all of his buddies so the heat will definitely be cranked up..hehe...I told Chris to bring one for me..he won't "remember" though---just because he wants to make out with me..oh wait--check that one..hehe :) Anyway, I am off to bed, gotta go run some errands early in the morn before I head to work...yet another long day...but you know this is the first time in awhile that I've been satisfied with the way my life is heading--so I really can't wait to get back to school and start on a clean slate...although I am trying to figure out why this is happening so suddenly and why now...but maybe sometimes I shouldn't wonder why and should just let myself be satisfied..after all, we all deserve that, right? I think I am beginning to believe so. Hey, wow, I am finally listening to my own advice... :) Sweet dreams and hugs and kisses everyone.

Subject:No work today!

So...I definitely had an insane thought last night, and I definitely acted upon it. Call me crazy if you will but I drove three hours to go see Tom and stayed with him for four, only to turn right back around again and come home to be at the airport at 10. It's something I needed though, that's for sure. So I came home from the airport after speaking to my great aunt for a few and catching up with her since I have not seen her since I was 7 or so and then I crawled into my bed until 530. Ahhh how relaxing. I just hung out here for awhile and got some things done and then went to Angeline's to see her newly decorated room...very hot I must admit! And then I went over to Molly's because she made this awesome Italian dinner and we hung out and ate ice cream watching the real world...ahhh don't you love the simple things of life? I only wish it was all so simple...

Subject:Red, white, and BLONDE
Security:Public

So I dyed my hair blonde today...I always thought it would work for me....so I just did it! Just kidding, but we did go see the Legally Blonde movie at 5 after I worked 730-330, and it was everything I needed....it just made me relax and laugh since as you know it's nothing serious and there is no plot to figure out. So right after the movie I drove over to Katie's house because we had our concert tonight that we were so excited about!! But first I have to spend time with Bryce, my favorite two year old. I love little kids, they are so adorable. I love how they are so helpless and depend on us for every little thing that they need and I love how they are so fearless and they just love being alive. Seeing a little kid smile makes me so happy and it makes me forget about the petty things of life and just savor the moment. Everytime I see Bryce, he says "Hi Shell" and gives me a huge hug and immediately grabs my hand and takes me to his toys, and everytime I leave he says "I wuv you..and he kisses me bye and smiles...now that is my favorite man right there...he knows just how to treat a lady! It just makes me smile to know that I can make someone happy, and I know that no matter what, I can always make kids happy if no one else. Things like this just reassure me that I am doing the right thing in life by wanting to work with kids. Anyway, the concert was amazing! We got there a little late, so we missed American Hi Fi, which I was a little upset about because those guys rock, but it's all right, there are worse things in life, right? Sugar Ray's set was already up and boy their lyrics do not make any sense or express much emotion at all other than talking about sex, but they have great energy, that's for sure, and they danced around in thongs...yes ladies...mark mcgrath in a thong...OH SOOOO HOT...now you know why he worked in the porn industry before the band, or at least I do because I saw him! We had orchestra seating and we were just a few rows from a stage, so we saw everything so well, it was so exciting to be that close because I knew matchbox would put on a great show. Katie helped me pass out some Ceerius business cards and we definitely plastered them all over cars in the parking lot, just to spread the love. I hope some of the American Hi Fi groupies got ahold of some and know of a band who needs some help getting recognition, but we'll see nonetheless.
Well Sugar Ray got off of the stage and MB came on, and I mean this was the last day of their tour so you would have figured they would be so tired and worn out, but it was just so amazing. I love the lyrics of their songs, it puts so many of my feelings into perspective and reassures me of so many things. Katie and I were just singing along and dancing to everything, and it was like no one else was in the ampitheather but me and the band. I love it when music makes me feel like that because then I really know it means something so much more to me than just notes and instruments. Rob Thomas is so gorgeous and when he sings it just makes my heart melt. After the concert, we went up to the very front and asked their manager, yes you heard right,if we could have a guitar pick from each band member...(I wanted a drumstick too, but no go!) and we got it....Rob even had signed his (I am sure he had already signed it for any fan, but still-AHHHH!!!) I mean it was amazing, we had an awesome time, and now it is time to get some sleep and dream about the words that are stuck in my head...Sweet dreams all...XOXO

Subject:Happy holiday weekend!
Security:Public

WOW--what a BLAST this holiday weekend was! I worked yesterday from 9-5 and to be quite honest we were not as busy as I had anticipated. It was very hot outside, but you know I love it!!! I got off at 5 and headed over to Seattle Espresso to wait for Molly to get off of work so we could head over to a cookout and then down to the beach for the fireworks. We were at 25th street laying on a pink blanket, I am sure you couldn't have missed us...hehe!! Nothing but good times with my girls. My new phrase of the week "Oh he is so sex."- and Molly's- "Oh baby he is so intercourse" yeah don't ask, she's silly. After the cruddy 8 minutes of fireworks.. and I mean come on I feel so sorry for the tourists who spend so much money to come here and then stuff like that happens...this little kid about five years old comes running up to Annie, Molly, and I. I was like oh hi sweetie, where is your mommy- and you know it's the perfect bait for a girl like me because I love kids. So then we see daddy trailing behind him saying "Zachary (by the way I love this name), did you make some friends?" Haha...oh how original dude. I know how this works, and we all do so we just play it off as if we have no idea what he wants. So he sits with us for about, Oh I don't know thirty minutes, with this horrific laugh and jokes that didn't even make me laugh, and that's pretty bad if you know how I am with my giggles. Needless to say, we didn't accept his offer to go have a drink at his place. Better luck next time honey. Well then we are waiting on my friend Will to call so we can head over to this party that one of his friends is having in Broad Bay Pt. Greens, and I know tons of people over that way to know that he wasn't lying when he said it was 250+ people. But I missed his phone call...Oops! hehe. So i go to check my voicemail and it was "Michelle where are you, I thought you were coming out..Anyway gimme a call when you get this." So I call him back and he had already left and so I wasn't going there without him and he told me he'd call tomorrow night. Yeah right, you can't believe what guys say..but I guess I can start believing him because he did call me to go out, about ten minutes ago...but I 'missed' his call again. So I pick up the phone and dial my voicemail. "Hey Michelle, it's Will, it's a...god I dunno what time it is...anyway I was really hoping we could get together tonight..okay call me if you want I guess....later babe." Whew I love it when you guys can't find the words to say..something so cute about that! And he called me babe. Yeah I feel really giddy and like I am in high school, but I guess he is going to make me feel that way...we'll see where this one goes. He's really sweet and he goes to Hampden Sydney..yeah long distance..haha we know where that's headed...he's really tall and that is so sexy...nice build from playing soccer and surfing all of the time with his gorgeous baby blues...but I dunno.. I truly just want all these guys as friends because I can't say I am ready for something yet, but I dunno where the feelings are coming from, but at the same time I can truly say for the first time that it doesn't really matter and that I am okay with feeling like that. And who knows where they stand? I'll be having a few serious conversations soon I know. Well hope you are all having a great holiday weekend, I know I am, it's been a blast. I am off to call you know who...talk to you tomorrow after the concert I am sure. XOXO

It's been a few days, but I've been working 730-330 the past few days getting ready for the July 4th weekend, and it has been crazy around here! Went on a date last night, but I'll just keep that one to myself-nothing that special, oh believe me. Let's see...Hatteras was excellent-it ended up being gorgeous outside and Kyle got to surf a little and I got a decent tan for the day and it was just over-all an enjoyable day with him..I am sure we'll do it again soon. Molly and I went out but didn't stay out for long because we both had to work the next day at 8, so we were responsible adults, as usual. Well I guess I really didn't have much to say for today because I haven't really done much at all other than work to tell you the truth. I'll be back to write July 5th after work because I won't have time until then. Adios my friends, and until next time...

Subject:Hatteras
Security:Public

Today is my day off, and let's just say I'm heading to Hatteras with Kyle in about an hour. The weather is supposed to be kind of cruddy today, but we'll see. Hopefully the sunshine will come through, I know he just wants to surf, so maybe the break will be good enough for him to do that. I am definitely glad I met Kyle, he makes me feel like life isn't flying by as quickly as it really is. When we hang out it's as if time just stops completely and we can enjoy wherever it is that we are and I don't have time to think about the things that upset or worry me. Anyway I am not sure where that is headed and I kind of like it that way, but nonetheless he is very good looking and the tan, sexy blue eyes, blonde spiky hair, white boardshorts, and that oh-so-nice surfer build most definitely do it for me. I'll just lay out in my new bikini (YES! I finally got a new one that fits the upper portions of my body) or possibly hit some waves with him-we'll just have to see. I made some PBJs for us to have on the beach so we don't have to spend money-besides that is my favorite thing anyway! When we get back I am sure we'll hang out for a bit, kick it up with Corona or Heineken and then all I know is I am coming home to shower and then out with Molly! We were thinking Hooters for dinner and Dixie's Tavern for the evening..2 dollar cover..not so bad, huh-but we might end up at The Wave for 80's night---whoo hoo!!! wherever we go it will be tons of fun, you just didn't hear about the scandals of the bar dancing at Bar Norfolk last Wednesday...hehe hopefully this will be just as enjoyable. (By the way at Bar, I definitely rubbed up against Steven from the Real World Las Vegas and I just haven't been the same since--just kidding I am not that excited about it-but I couldn't resist saying it.) But if it was Brad Pitt, it would be a completely different story! Okay so I am off to Hatteras and to the beautiful sunshine now, so I will see you later! Have a good day and wear your suncscreen...the UV index is ridiculous for the day! XOXO

Subject:Just one of those days...
Security:Public

You know that feeling of being so overwhelmed? Yes, that was definitely my day today.
So I wake up at 645 to be at work at 730. I get to work on time, only to open the door and have the alarm go off on me. I don't know the code, all I know is that I am half asleep and all I want is my bed. Meanwhile, the alarm system is shouting "burglar, burglar!" which was something that could have been heard all the way on 80th street. So I call the alarm company, yeah the phoneline is disconnected, they are no longer a business. GREAT, haha. I then call public safety in hopes someone can turn this alarm off. 411 connects me to the state police, yeah not good. The police officer finally gets there twenty minutes after the fact and then leaves as soon as he sees I am no threat. Well that was great except I still had an intercom shouting at me. Oh my gosh. Katie comes to work at 830, and we turn the alarm off. Everything is great now, yeah I am wrong. The girl that was supposed to close the store doesn't show up, and we can't get ahold of her, so this means I work open to close, yep you heard me right. Grrr!!! Yeah so what, the day goes by, a little stress here and a little there, but it nothing unbearable, there are more worse things in life. I go out to the parking lot and start my car when I see Katie look at me and say "my car won't start." All I wanted to do was crawl in my bed, but because I am who I am, we hooked up the jumper cables to my car, and we proceeded to try and start the car, only Katie put the red cable on the black hookup, AHHH! So I see her car smoking and realize that could present a huge problem. The cables are melting and I think the car is going to blow up, just great. And to think I just had 600 dollars of work done to the car. To sum it up, we basically tried to start her car for three hours before it started, and needless to say now that I am home, I am going to sleep. Tomorrow will be a better day, I know it!

Subject:Things happen for a reason...
Security:Public

Wow, today I think I took on a different perspective of life. I was sitting at Molly's work at seven in the morning drinking a mocha and reading a book on how to deal with people and how to handle all of the relationships in life. It was such a great book that I read all 350 pages in about three hours. I have to appreciate a great book because it definitely reiterated the important things in life. I was never one to deal or worry over the petty things, but lately I found myself doing just that in my relationships. I can honestly say that I am never, ever going to let that happen again. As I always say, 'things happen for a reason' and 'if it is meant to be, it will be' and i am not going to forget that now. I just hope that everyone finds what they are searching for. Finding your passion is what everyone strives for, and unfortunately too many people "settle." I don't want to ever settle. I don't want to ever let anything get in the way of making myself happy or others for that matter. I do miss the way things used to be, but this is life now. I can't go back and fix the past, I can only learn from what has happened and make a better future. I can't wait to go back to school in two months, I look forward to seeing all of my friends and meeting some awesome new people. I've been writing poems for a few months now, I never knew I could express my feelings that way. It's something I would have never pictured myself enjoying so much. Hopefully I will post some up here soon for everyone to read, but for now I have to go to work. Have a great day! :)
