Well between research papers, government tests and other miscellaneous stress, this week has been very hectic. I am totally looking forward to this weekend that is about to start.

yesterday was dogtastic! in the morning, me and josh went to a pet store in mission valley where this dog rescue agency was adopting animals. i got to play with puppies for a little while, which was fun. then it was off to planned parenthood for my gyno appointment, which was extremely painful and uncomfortable. the doctor found some lumb above my pelvis, which i need to go have checked out by a primary care physician. she says it will probably be nothing, but since i have a history of cancer in my family, it needs to be checked out to be on the safe side. in other cancer news, my grandma has breast cancer. terrific.

after vagina doctor fun, me and josh went and picked up brenda and ate at cafe caspia. delicious. the food there was so good. then we went and picked up taylor and his adorable pug porky. that dog is so so so cute, and we took him to this dog section of balboa park. once there, porky ran around and proceeded to hump this one dog repeatedly. it was pretty amusing. then me and josh dropped everyone off and went and picked up a book from a friend's house and got to pet their greyhounds for a little. fun. so all in all, amy had a pretty cute dog filled day.

after all this dog excitement, me and josh went back to his house, ate and watched futurama dvds. like the exciting people we are, we went to bed before midnight on a saturday. sweet.

Friday - I went out to sushi with Mike and Erin, which was fun. I got pretty full really easy on not a lot of sushi. Usually I eat another roll, but I guess I wasn't feeling the bottomless pit. Spent the night at casa de Joshy, which is always nice.

Saturday - Woke up and had breakfast at bagel place. Yum. The rest of the day was ultra busy day. Me and Josh rearranged his whole room and flipped everything around. Well I am weak so he did most of the work, heh. After that we used a bunch of old computer parts he has and built me a computer for me to have over at his house. Then a friend of ours donated a flat panel for me to use and viola! Amy now has a computer over at Josh's house. Woo hoo. Nerdtastic.

Sunday - Bonfire at the beach. Guessing lame 80s movies and throwing shit in the fire and watching it explode is fun.

Today - Job interview at Subway at 3. I need this job to pay off that shitty ticket, but I don't think working at Subway is going to be much fun. Oh well, you have to start somewhere.

I also downloaded the new Grandaddy album that isn't even out yet and it fucking rules!

Tonight after volunteering, I headed over to Josh's for some food. He said he'd buy me dinner to cheer me up. We originally planned on getting some Indian food but instead I was craving Ranchos so we went there. They messed up my order, but it was still good so I didn't say anything. Plus, the waiter was an acquaintance of Josh's and he was super busy, so it was no biggie. Tonight was a good night, I am pretty well cheered up. Sleeping will feel good.

Today I got a speeding ticket on my way to Mike's house and I feel like shit. I feel like such a fucking loser at life.

I will now try to cheer myself up by listening to non-stop X and Sleater-Kinney and eating yummy Indian Food provided by Joshy.

Iron and Wine was amazing. However, the Knitting Factory is running low in the seating department, so I stood for a solid 3 hours or so. My body hates me right now, however, I will appeal to it with sleep and good food so it will love me again. As much as Iron and Wine is amazing, I don't think I would want to see him again unless it was in a venue with lots of seating so I could kick back and enjoy it. He played for an hour and a half pretty much non stop with only a thank you between songs. His music is really mellow folky stuff, so its very relaxing, making it really hard to stand through. I can deal when bands like Sleater-Kinney or Rocket From the Crypt play that long because I am dancing around having fun, but this was something better enjoyed sitting in an intimate venue. Oh well, I had fun.

Well I have actually been up to a lot of stuff and been pretty busy...

I have been going to a bunch of anti-war protests and marches. For a while there I went to something four days in a row. It was pretty exhausting, but at least it was for something I care about. I went to two marches and then i'd go visit the people sitting outside the federal building camped out for a couple hours.

Saturday I went down to Puerto Nuevo, Mexico with Josh and some of our friends for some lobster. We got down there around 3, walked around and looked at little shops in the town and went to dinner. The place we went to was really good and the lobsters were huge. Sarah didn't end up eating all of hers so I ended up eating 1.5 lobsters. Ugh. After that we walked around a little more and drove home. The border wasn't that crowded so it didn't take that long to get over. But when we pulled up, the guy checking cars in our line looked like a total meat head and was really interrogating people and checking cars. So when he asked where we were from, Josh's roommate Derek who was driving said, "I live in Hillcrest and he (points to Josh sitting next to him) lives with me. Oh and those two (points to the Sarahs) live in the Mission Bay area and she (points to me) lives in La Mesa." Apparently, he was a little thrown off or something after he said they lived in Hillcrest together. What a moron.

After dropping off the Sarahs, we swung by Beverages and More, picked up two six packs of cider and then went to the video store and rented Mars Attacks. We then proceeded to get pretty drunk. I then got those drunk munchies and ate half a box of Girlscout cookies.

Sunday a bunch of us got together and watched the academy awards and ate veggie meat tacos. Steve Martin sucks and just needs to give it up. He didn't make a single joke that didn't involve degrading some female actress' looks. It was painfully not funny, not to mention most of his material was pretty tired. He made several J Lo jokes as if 25457657345 of those haven't already been told. Oh Well.

Yesterday, I went with Brandan to the mall to find his girlfriend a present for their anniversary. That was fun especially since Brandan bought me food for driving.

Now I am sitting on my ass waiting for it to be 3:30 so I can drive up to Josh's work so we can meet everyone and drive to LA to see Iron and Wine. Woo hoo.

I am now drinking my second nice cold glass of fresh squeezed orange juice and it is soooo damn good. Then in a little while I will be off to Josh's house for dinner, TV and hanging out. There will be some snacking on pita chips, hummus and for dinner soyrizo/potato rolled tacos. SO good. I am looking forward to eating tonight and for Fear Factor, of course.

Brandan got mad at me the other day and then IMd be today like nothing happened. But the conversation was kinda wierd. I really want to keep a good relationship with him, I care about him a lot and it's frustrating when we get in fights :( Ugh

Saturday morning I got up nice and early to attend a job fair at the San Diego Zoo. They need merchandise people to sell stuff in the gift stores, so they has a listing on their job site for this fair that stars at 9. They gave no other information either, not when they need people, how many they need or anything. So I get there at 8:45, get in line and wait in a line for about 1.5 hours to just get into the Otto Center where the job fair is taking place. Once inside, I wait for another 30 min and finally get an application. I fill out the application quickly and see my friend Ruthie waiting in the second line for people who have filled out their application. I cut in line with her and we wait another 30 min to get into this auditorium where they seat us until our names are called for a group interview. We are in there for another hour or more when a woman walks in to make an announcement. She announces that they only need 30 people today, they have already hired 15 and that they need people M-F from 8am to 5pm. So if you don't meet that criteria you can just leave. So yeah. I left that place at 12:30 with nothing to show for it but a morning of waiting. It was totally frustrating to say the least. Ugh.

Then I got home, grabbed some stuff together and went over to Josh's house. We then hopped into this car and headed down to Mexico for a nice little 24 hour getaway. We arrived in Puerto Nuevo around 3 and checked into a hotel for the night. We hung around the hotel a little then headed into town for some dinner. We had a nice lobster dinner then went back to the hotel. We then left to go check out Rosarito up the road a couple miles. It was pouring all day and the streets were totally flooded. There was like a foot of water to drive through, it was pretty insane. The towns were totally dead, so we ended up just taking a hit on the hotel and driving back to San Diego. We got back to his house at 10, watched Detroit Rock City and went to bed. Not the best weekend getaway, but it was pretty fun. It was some nice alone time out of the city so I liked that.

Sunday morning we got up, went and had breakfast, and then drove around San Diego looking at houses. Then we went over to a friend's house, Josh worked on thier computer, and we went grocery shopping. After that headed home and watched the Simpsons. I headed home which takes me to this journal entry. So yeah, that's my weekend wrap up. Thrilling, huh?

I need to start using this to generate more productive ideas.

my senior project is finished and my portfolio has been turned in. i can now have a life again.

and this new life starts with hanging out with josh tonight. good way to start out, heh.

i keep getting these headaches everyday which i am attributing to caffeine. and speaking of caffienated drinks, my favorite taco shop as a child lost it's lease and is being turned into a starbucks. super.

in other breaking amy news, i need a haircut.

on a more serious note, we got into yet another discussion in psychology that left me pissed off at how ignorant people can be. the teacher read a story about how a woman was feeling neglected by her husband because he'd work all night and sleep by day. so she'd cross the river and have flings with various men and then cross back on the ferry. well one night she forgets her fare, no one will help her out, so she has to cross a dangerous pass and ends up getting stabbed by a homeless man. she then asks the class to rank all the characters in order of who's fault it is. as i expected, everyone in the class blamed it on the woman, with the excpetion being me and my couple friends who blamed the homeless man. people were saying shit like, "she shouldn't have been cheating," "she was in a bad neighborhood," blah blah blah. yes because women shouldn't be able to walk wherever we fucking want and not have to worry about getting stabbed. then after i completely schooled these two fucking idiot guys, they start whispering to each other and laughing. so frustrating.

So far this weekend has been nice and relaxing, greatly contrasting the stress fest it was originally planned to be. My senior project got extended to next week due to rain, which gives me more time to get going on that.

Yesterday me and Josh went out to dinner with some friends and I had a really nice time. We ate at the Old Spaghetti Factory and it was really good. Our waiter kept forgetting stuff, but it was Saturday night so I understand. I can't stand when people get down on waiters or waitresses, it's probably one of the hardest jobs out there, they are underpaid and they have to deal with all kinds of shit. And most people that bitch about them have never had to work a job even half as hard and definately not for the pay they get.

I am in such a good mood today, it's kinda wierd. Like, what am I forgetting that I should be worried or stressed about? Today I had a halfday at school, I filled up my Submarina frequent buyer card so I got a free sandwich, I saved $3 on tampons using my friend Ashley's Vons Club card and I am really happy about my relationship with Josh. Everything's coming up Amy. I had cramps earlier this morning, but I took some pain killers and now feel much better.

Tomorrow is Lauren's surprise birthday dinner at Mandarin Dynasty and after our bonding experience at the Sleater-Kinney show, I want to get her a good gift. She really is a good friend. I am going over to Josh's tonight to finish ripping the LA Sleater-Kinney show he bootlegged and I am going to give her a copy of that (oh and Jenny, if you want a copy, let me know I'd be happy to make you one, it has the new song on it). I also think I am going to try and find time tomorrow to make a batch of peanut butter cookies for her. We will see.
