I figured I should give you all one last hoorah on this username before I switch to writing in my new journal, thecaitlinshow.


Oh dear. I'm a face contortionist of sorts.

I think that picture carries a simple message.

Catch ya on the flipside! :)

I decided I needed a fresh start. Or I could be lying and just wanted an incredibly less cheesetastic username. :) I'm gonna go with the latter.


Oh yeah. Hot.

From one completely cheesetastic username to the next. But hey, it's a little less crazed stalker-ish. It's a small step.

I already added most of you on that one. Procrastinator's my middle name. ;)

Add me back, fools. I'll update it soon.

Look who we've got our Hanes on now! [31 May 2006|10:18pm]
[Brokeback's got me| exhausted]

Woo, long time no update.

I'm actually crazy tired so it probably won't be that extensive. I haven't gone to bed before 12:30 in the past month or so, and I think it's officially catching up with me.

Tomorrow's the last full day of school though! We have our first period final and then shortened class periods after that, but we already did our band finals so we're watching The Breakfast Club on the big projection screen down there. :) I'm going to watch that and study for the Biology final on Friday. KILL ME NOW. That class will be the death of me. Science is not my best subject. That and Spanish in one day. It's like two foreign languages! :P Pero me gusta español, entonces yo debo estar vale. ¡Se amo la lengua!

I have a couple graduation parties to go to on Saturday. It's so bittersweet. :/ Graduation itself is on Sunday. I think I'll be alright for most of it, but I just know at some point I'm going to get really emotional. I can't believe these bitches are leaving me. *breaks into song* GOODBYYYYYYYE TO YOOOOOOOOOOOU, GOODBYE TO EVERYTHIIIIIIIIING THAT I KNEEEEEEEEEEEW.

I'm cheesy, AND WHAT?!

Anyhoo, I'm all caught up on work, which is a first, so that's nice. This week has been stressful, but it's being wrapped up very nicely. I finally got my SAT scores back; that was good. I had a job interview today, so I am now offically an employee at Moe's Southwest Grill! (Amazing burritos plus REALLY cute guys I'm hoping add up to a good summer job. :D Guess who's gonna weigh 800 pounds by the end of summer? Chicken + cheese + spanish rice = ORGASM.) My last final is Tuesday. And a bunch of other little things that are just being solved and are loads off my mind.

Alright, I need to sleep...preferably for about a week straight, but 7 or so hours should do. ;)

I never knew, I never knew that everything was falling through... [17 May 2006|11:52pm]
[Brokeback's got me| weird]

Okay, so, I think I finally cracked. BUT, I survived 8 months of school without any major meltdowns, so that's good. I'm not done yet, but oh so close. Only 3 more weeks...

I just cried. Sobbed, actually. To the point of almost throwing up, which I didn't even know you could do. And it's weird, 'cause it wasn't over anything specific...but it was...but it wasn't. I don't know. I'm so in my own head right now. Doing the usual overanalyzing and reflecting on subjects that I shouldn't be. But you know me...apparently just letting nature take its course isn't on my list of things to do.

It's been a rollercoaster ride of emotions this past month. I'm all over the charts. In the past month...well...2 weeks actually, I've started a relationship and ended a relationship (mutually, and friendly, but regardless, it still ended...and 100% over my neuroses, but that's a story for another day), I've sang at a concert for school(after nearly peeing myself backstage), taken my first huge IB test which was for Music History after a BAJILLION AND A HALF HOURS of studying, which was frightening but is now OVER thank God...and yeah. Just other random stuff. And then I have personal issues...that are so intrinsically stupid and I can't believe I'm such a 'tard, but hey, we all have our emotional relapses. I've kept it bottled up and I think that's what resulted in the emotional breakdown.

But you know what? A good cry, preferably not followed by vomit, is sometimes just what you need.

And of course, a detailed LJ entry of that cry. Yeah, I don't know why I felt it necessary to write about it, but I haven't had an actual update in awhile and figured I could actually use this online journal...as well...a journal. Heaven forbid. The whole story's kind of embarassing 'cause when I get really upset, my mouth is wide open while I cry, and I ended up drooling all over myself...and my remote...and my floor. Lovely. Yay for motor skills! Or lack thereof.

I have to be up in 6 and a half hours...oh who am I kidding...more like 7. :) I ♥ waking up at the last minute.

Oh, and hugs make the world go round. Just a random bit of useful information that I found has applied to me in the past couple days.

I'll actually update later, I just really love this picture.

Oh, and,

This is my pre-cheeseball photo op before singing at the band concert on Monday with flute in hand. I'm a ham. :)

Oh, and because I enjoy taking flattering pictures of myself -

[Brokeback's got me| exhausted]

Band/chorus trips pretty much make my life better. They improve my quality of living. (Well, other than the fact that being in close proximity with these kids for 4 days didn't do much for my immune system, but hey, I can handle a cold and a hoarse throat. I'm a champ at that now haha! I swear though, band kids are the horniest of them all...we're a unique breed. Fun stuff. ;D)

This week is busy - I had an impromptu jazz band practice today after a tennis game as Mr. Drumbore asked me if I would stop by and sing for the peeps for the concert next week. It's an Ella Fitzgerald song, so that basically equals creaming-pants worthiness. I love Ella. Too much.

And I also love The Fray. I've recently become mildly obsessed to listening to them. The lyrics...dear God. The lyrics. Thank you Jes for introducing them to me! This song, "How to Save A Life," was on Scrubs last week, and I just fell in love. It made me cry. Twice. But I'm sappy like that, so.

Tennis game and talent show tomorrow, tennis game on Wednesday, tennis practice and then seeing the opera Don Giovanni for FREE on Thursday, nothing Friday, I don't think...and then I take the SATs Saturday, along with a benefit show for Invisible Children and a possible o. Bleebity bloo. I have 2 tests Wednesday, the SATs Saturday, and my IB Music History test the 16th. I might die. But I shall try my darndest not to.

Alright, well I have tons of pictures from the band/chorus Virginia Beach band trip, and you will look, and you will love. Because they are quite hilarious.

Look at my pictures, bitch!Collapse )

Yay for life.

I hate when you make me smile, it feels like I'm giving in. [22 Apr 2006|09:23pm]
[Brokeback's got me| lazy]

New layout. It makes me want to touch things. Namely myself. ;P

This has been a good spring break. I'm not even really that upset that it's Saturday.

I spent Wednesday with my mom. It was great just talking with her, being outside and spending time together. It was nice. I watched Funny Girl, and like the douche I am, sang songs from it all that night. Barbra Streisand is amazing, and was so gorgeous when she was younger. I could listen to her sing all day. Thursday, Brittanie and I went to Philadelphia, to South Street more specifically, to go shopping. It was beautiful out - I got a sunburn lol. We made good timing getting there. All traffic considered we got there in less than half an hour. I love Philly. The first 5 minutes out of the car - literally - we got hit on 4 times. We decided to make a game of it and count how many times, figuring maybe we could get a dozen, or maybe even twenty! We were in Philly for about four hours, and we got hit on 52 TIMES. Fifty-two. LMAO! If you ever need a confidence boost, go to Philadelphia. It's good shit. Plus, they have like 3 sex shops within like 3 blocks of each other. Britt bought "adult nude male" playing cards from The Mood. And we studied vibrator prices at Condom Kingdom. It was a fun day. :D We finally bought the prom dress that she had been shopping for back at a mall in Delaware, but it was a great day nonetheless.

After we came home, we, along with Rachel, slept over Madison's house. Fun times. Apparently Britt, Rachel, and I are deathly afraid of water bugs. And apparently Josie & The Pussycats is Rachel and I's life story. I hung out with Madison most of Friday, ate some amazing Chinese food, watched her dad do the lobster dance...you can't not smile when he does it. It's literally impossible. I watched American Beauty when I got home. I liked it a lot. Kevin Spacey is an amazing actor. He fills roles so well. And I love his voice.

Oh, and speaking of Philadelphia, I'm watching it now. Apparently I love to watch movies that make me sob uncontrollably. It's so good. Denzel Washington and Tom Hanks are so good. Antonio Banderas, too. Man...all the movies I've watched this weekend are amazing...and have all won an Academy Award for something, too, coincidentally enough.

Alright, enough babbling. More movie watching. :)

There's still a little bit of you laced with my doubt. [18 Apr 2006|06:27pm]
[Brokeback's got me| relaxed]

I love spring break. To every extreme.

Compared to the past two months of my life, it's like...extreme relaxation. I'm kinda pissed at my teachers though. They told us that basically we wouldn't have any work over spring break because there were so many internal assessments and stuff due before. That they wouldn't us to "enjoy our breaks." Then what do they do? GIVE US HOMEWORK IN EVERY. SINGLE. SUBJECT. Dickheads... but I decided to be productive, and after a fun little lunch with Janine on Monday, I sat and cranked out my homework. Until 3 in the morning. I figured it'd be better to be stressed and frustrated all in one day then attempt to spread it out over the rest of my vacation. This way I have nothing to do before I go back to school. :D I finished a Biology lab (certainly pulled THAT out of my ass), an English essay, a 521 measure-long style marking of a piece of music for Music History, and my outline for my History internal assessment. *whew* Quite a list. I was gonna do something with media for history, but I couldn't think of anything spiffy enough that would give me a lot of information, so I'm doing "Was the biochemical warfare used against the Vietnamese during the Vietnam War justified or should it be considered as a 'crime against humanity'?" Sounds interesting enough.

ANYhoo, long and short of it is - I'm done with homework and there are still 6 days left of spring break! YAY! Not to mention it's absolutely GORGEOUS out. All this week is weather in the 70s with lots of sun. Absolute perfection. :) I got my first sunburn of the vacation today after being out in the sun for 4 hours in the middle of the day with Katie, Kaylee and Ian. It was so much fun. I love acting like I'm six sometimes. "It looks so soft...JUST LET ME HUG THE GOOSE!" Haha, oh man, good times. You know you're getting old though when you get mildly nauseous after playing on a swing. All 4 of us had a small bout of motion sickness lol. It probably didn't help that I had 3 pieces of pizza and some fries before I went on it. :X Haha, oh well, fun nonetheless...

I'm actually not even dreading going back to school on Monday - it's gonna be the weirdest back to school transition ever. The day I come back, I'm going on a field trip to NYC, for a tour of Yankee Stadium and of the retail shops on Canal Street. That is the actual itinerary. FUCK YES!!! I love New York City, I love Derek Jeter, and I love shopping in NYC. I'm so excited. Then I go back to school Tuesday and Wednesday, and then Thursday I leave for Virginia Beach with the band and chorus kids for 4 days. These next two weeks should be pretty much amazing. :D I need it, too. Some time just to have fun. And not want to shoot bitches.

Good shit.

Alright, I wanna watch a movie. I'm lame and rented 4 movies at the library - Funny Girl, American Gigolo, Philadelphia, and Some Like it Hot. Yay. Later, peeps. :D

What if I wanted to break, laugh it all off in your face - what would you do? [11 Apr 2006|11:37am]
[Brokeback's got me| recumbent]

All the shows were absolutely amazing. I still can't believe it's all over. I'm surprised my head hasn't completely blown up from my ego from all the compliments people have said just about the show in general. (A couple people compared my voice to Aretha Franklin's and I swear to God I almost wet myself right on the spot. I've fucking loved Aretha Franklin since I was like 4.) Everyone of the cast members were so unbelievably amazing. I got goosebumps backstage every single night. This musical gave me the chance to become friends with people that I wouldn't necessarily have gotten to know as well before, and for that alone, I'm so grateful. The cast party was one of the best nights I've had in a long time. So much fun. ;P Over 2,000 people came to see our show altogether. Pretty amazing, no? We'd go out in the lobby to talk to people afterwards, and there would be these little kids coming up to us and asking us for our autograph. Let me tell you right now, and I know I'm speaking for everyone involved - nothing makes you have a non-erasable ginormous smile on your face like a little kid asking you for your autograph.

Haha, that said, from belting every night, I'm pretty sure I strained my vocal cords. Yesterday my throat was annoying me, but it wasn't too horrible, but when I woke up this morning my throat was swollen to the size of like, a pin. I couldn't feel anything go down my throat. I got all ready and dressed for school anyway, but when my mom came in to say goodbye to me, she took one look at me and told me to get back in bed lol. I guess the rest helped as well because I feel a lot better now. Thank goodness it was a half-day or I probably would have dragged myself to go. I really wanted to go today...she literally forced me to go back to sleep. I'm kind of happy she did now though.

I can't stop looking at all the pictures people took from backstage and onstage and when we were all just fooling around at rehearsals. It's weird 'cause musical has basically been my life for the past 4 months, and now it's all over. This last week alone was well over probably 60 hours of being surrounded by these people. I remember last year I was so stressed with tennis. I'd come home after games and feel like I had no time to do anything. Now, because I had tennis and musical at the same time, with musical done, tennis seems like such a breeze. It's kinda cool actually. My life seems a lot more chill. Maybe even a bit empty without it. I'm sure it'll pass though.

Alright, this was my one "nostalgic" entry, I promise. I just felt the need to reminisce.

(The opening of our show - I'm all the way to the left!)

Oh the thinks you can think...Collapse )

Oh man, that's enough pictures to last awhile. Good memories. :)

I sprained my little toe, and I hobbled like so, for yooooou. [05 Apr 2006|09:32pm]
[Brokeback's got me| exhausted]

Four months of rehearsal.

Thirty hours in the past 5 days alone.

All for this.

I don't think I've ever had so many feelings welling up at once. I'm anxious, nervous, excited, exhausted, completely pumped...

I'm in a glass case of emotions.

Opening night. Tomorrow.

"There's nothing that I couldn't, and I wouldn't, and I haven't gone throoooough...all for you..."

Long time, no update. [31 Mar 2006|04:12pm]
[Brokeback's got me| surprised]


I got in a car accident like a week and a half ago - don't ask...long story short, other car was speeding, slammed into my rear left tire, my car did a 180º spin and yeah. The girl could not have been more unpleasant. But ANYway, we really didn't know how much repairs were gonna cost so I figured that was it. No more car for me. Didn't even really think twice about getting it back.

Until today. I saw it in the driveway. And proceeded to sob uncontrollably. Omg. I'm so happy. With my schedule that car wasn't so much a convenience as a necessity. I just can't believe it. My parents surprised me. It's a little beat up...y'know, missing a hubcap on the one tire and stuff now, but omg. *Sigh.* It quite literally made my year.

The musical opens on Thursday. I have practice Saturday and Sunday for about 8 hours each, and then Monday through Wednesday from 5-10, and then the next day is opening night. I'm so anxious, scared, nervous, excited. I'M IN A GLASS CASE OF EMOTIONS.

Life has been so hectic lately and there's so much going on. I had four oral presentations in the past two days. Musical and tennis practice after school. Tons of freaking internal assessments that are due in the next week. It's not all over yet, but I'm slowly knocking it out. I just have to remember, musical all this week, then another week of school, and then SPRING FUCKING BREAK. I've never needed it more in my life. And on top of that, after we come back from spring break, I have 3 days of school and then it's the BAND/CHORUS TRIP!!! I'm so excited to be away with a lot of my friends for 4 days. Should been a hell of a lot of fun.

Alright, I need to just settle for a bit. I'm emotional right now. Excited and angry and sad and ecstatic all in a heartbeat. That's life.

[Brokeback's got me| sleepy]

I had a very good birthday. :) I didn't really do anything, but it was good nonetheless. I didn't feel like having a party...I'm too lazy/busy this year to want to really do anything. I am seeing V for Vendetta tonight though, my first legally entered R rated movie, as opposed to just praying that the ushers can't do math lol. Yay for being 17 when you're a gigantic movie dork like me! (Most of my gifts were DVDs and I was very happy. :D I also got the Fiona Apple & The Veronicas CDs! WOOHOO!)

Charles got me an amazing birthday gift...a Jake Gyllenhaal collage/poster. EEE!

Absolutely gorgeous.Collapse )

These past couple weeks have been really hectic. We have this huge internal assessments due in basically every class, on top of tennis practice, my after-school class, and musical practice. My life has been pretty insane. My room began to reflect that. It was SO dirty. And let me tell you, I'm a MESSY person. Like, it's just how I live...not very organized. But even for me, it was just plain ridiculous. I had to step on stuff just to get to my bed or in the door! I worked on it for an hour or two last night, as I just couldn't live with myself anymore. Lookee!

TA-DAAA!!!Collapse )

I feel like I'm living in a whole new room. :D Let's just see how long it stays this way. OUR MUSICAL OPENS TWO WEEKS FROM THURSDAY! EEE! I'm so anxious and nervous and excited and AHHHH! I kinda can't wait.

I'm so thankful for state testing this year. Only the freshmen and sophomores have to take it. I'VE PAID MY DUES! ;P I get to sleep in until 10 basically all this week while they take the tests. Fuck yeaaaaah.

Alright, well I'm gonna go nap. Exhausted isn't even a strong enough word to describe how I feel right now lol. OH, and so as to go out with a bang, I present to you, the newly-dubbed, (by me), Mr. Snuggle Muffins.Collapse )

Ooo, I got the right tactics to turn you on. [06 Mar 2006|03:59pm]
[Brokeback's got me| calm]

I love the Oscars. I spent 3 and a half hours last night just staring at my TV, with moments of random squealing, "aww"-ing, and orgasming at the awesomeness and pure hot sex that emits from Jake Gyllenhaal and George Clooney.

Anyhizzle, today was pretty good. I felt very calm, which is kinda unusual. Not that I'm usually a frantic mess...but well, usually I'm a frantic mess. Hahaha. But anyway, it was chill. Things that were making me nervous ended up having extensions, (YAY FOR HISTORY TESTS BEING DUE 4 DAYS LATER THAN YOU THINK THEY ARE!!!) I don't know, I just feel really at ease right now. I have a lot to do, but I think I can handle it. Let's hope so.

I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning with my hand doctor. I had a physical in school at the Wellness Center on Friday and they said they wanted consent from my doctor if I wanted to play tennis, and luckily I'd had this appointment set for tomorrow for awhile anyway. Thank God. Long story short, the brace thing didn't really work. It did for awhile, but now the tendon is slipping off the knuckles again. On both fingers. Eeks. The doctor at the Wellness Center saw it and wanted doctoral consent to make sure I could play, and I'm praying to God he lets me. I figure if I get it fixed during the summer, or never, whenever lol, it shouldn't matter if I play tennis now. I'm praying that's his mentality too. I love tennis...I love playing it, and I love the people that play it with me. Let's pray all goes well.

I should be getting homework out of the way right now, but I really don't want to. I felt obligated to update my LJ, and we all know, LiveJournal trumps over education. Speaking of which, I had a meeting with Janine with the guidance counselors at school today about our college plans. I felt so old. The lady talked to us about our future plans and whatnot. MAN, I wanna go to NYU so bad. And I wanna do broadcasting or something in film so bad. SO BAD. I can't even stand how much I wanna go there to do that. It's kinda ridiculous. It's fucking New York University. If I get in, I think I'll probably just spontaneously combust wherever I am when I get the admissions letter lol. The guidance counselor also showed us what our transcripts look like so far, and I was pretty pleased. I don't know why, but I just felt a sense of worry about it, and it was nice to see what I actually have in front of me. It's weird to see all your grades in front of you...all your work coming to fruition - one of the only things you have to show a college what you're made of. I was really happy though because the class ranking was on it and apparently I'm 4th in my class out of 197. It gave me a new motivation, I guess. Either way, the prospect of college both frightens the crap out of me and makes me so excited I could just implode.

So, in yet another attempt to blow off homework despite my motivational speech to myself, (I'm my own Matt Foley! <-- All SNL geeks should get that...), it's time for me to do a survey-ish thing I found on MySpace. I'm just that much of a procrastinator.Collapse )

Alright, I'm outtie 3000.

[Brokeback's got me| exhausted]

Man...the next two months of my life are exhaustion city.

And I'm very excited. :)

I'll be stressed, but I'll be living life to the fullest, and really, that's what it comes down to. I'm trying to look at the positive aspect of it all.

The good news is, despite the fact that I still have an annoying cough, for the most part I feel better. Only coughs and occasional headaches. My only complaints. I was out sick Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of last week, and Monday of this week. By some hand of God though, I didn't have that much work to make up. Very grateful for that. I just have some math to do tonight, and I did the spanish presentation I missed earlier today, so woot woot for that.

My parents were out of town this weekend for a mini-vacation for my dad's birthday, so I was up at my sister's dorm. I love my sister. So much. We laughed and laughed and laughed. Even just watching movies and sitting around her dorm, what could have been really boring was so much fun.

Tennis started today! The first half hour or so...I couldn't even hit the ball. I was so out of practice. After a bit I started to get back into it though, got some power hits...walked around with my sweatpants around my ankles. 'Twas a sexy, sexy look. ;) I really do love playing tennis. I get pissed with it sometimes, but I think that happens with any sport. I'm really excited to get further in the season. I love the people on the team. :)

Oh, such a cute story...I finished my class after school and went up to the gym to go get changed real quick, and all the girls were chiling in the hallway, because apparently our coach was gonna be late. Anyhizzle, I had asked this group of freshmen girls a question and this girl that is in one of my classes was talking to me and we were just chatting, and then I go to walk away. All of a sudden, the group starts laughing, and I was like "Oh dear, are they laughing at me?" But anyway, one of the friends calls me over and it turns out, as the girl who I was talking to told me, and I quote, "They laughed 'cause I was proud of myself for talking to you." I couldn't believe it! I thought it was adorable. She had apparently been nervous to talk to me, and I was just like "Aw hun! You can talk to me anytime!" And then I gave her a hug. Everyone loves hugs. :) She's my new buddy lol. Haha, I'm such a dork. I love stuff like that. (And now I think all the new kids on the team think I'm the resident goofball...which I basically am lol, because at practice I either had my pants around my ankles while dancing in my shorts, or had my pants pulled all the way up to my boobs. I'm a sexy beast. ;])

Anyhoo, tomorrow should be busy as crap. I have my LAST physical therapy appointment in the morning before school! WOOHOO! I'm ready for that shit to be OVER! Very, very happy about that. Then I have school, class after school, tennis practice, and a band concert that night. Tennis and musical are gonna be the deaths of me, but I love them so. ♥

It's more than a feeling, more than a feeeeling! [20 Feb 2006|09:03pm]
[Brokeback's got me| sick]

I love Donnie Darko. It's such a good movie. I watched it today while lying in my bed. It automatically put me in a good mood. Apparently for me, happiness stems from watching movies and laying down for extended periods of time. Who knew?

(I did.)

So my three-day weekend literally consisted of nothing. Just the way I like it! I needed a "free from the world" weekend. I went to musical rehearsal Saturday morning, where we learned an awesome dance for the show, but that was about all I did that involved physical activity this long weekend. My mom woke me up at 1 Sunday afternoon - I needed the sleep soooo bad! I had decided I was gonna finish all my homework Sunday so I could relax today. Would you believe I was up until 1:30 in the morning doing homework yesterday? RIDICULOUS. Of course I was watching TV while doing it, and took a break to watch Family Guy and Grey's Anatomy. But it was much deserved. And I'm all done now, so yay. :)

Today all I did was watch movies, (I watched The Incredibles with the fam while I studied for music history), be online, and lay down. And sit. And lay down. And sit.

I honestly could qualify as a sloth or a lemur or some shit. I'm soooo lazy. And I love it.

Unfortunately I've been battling sinus headaches and a sore throat the whole weekend, but what else can we expect from my immune system? IT HATES ME.

Alright, full attention needs to be focused on Full House; DJ is caught in a Nelson-Viper love triangle.

(Oh oh oh - I downloaded 3 scenes from Brokeback Mountain off of an LJ community and it honestly made me so happy that I felt like a bigger loser than I actually am. They're the "hot" scenes. Akekeke...

And also, go to http://www.myheritage.com because after you upload a picture, it tells you what celebrity you look like, or have similar facial similarities to. I honestly spent like 4 hours on it this weekend. Apparently I look a lot like Liv Tyler, Kelly Clarkson, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and the emperor of China? Either way, it's so entertaining.)

Alright, I'm officially done now. :)

Name ten of life's simple pleasures that you like most, then pick ten people to do the same.
Try to be original and creative and not to use things that someone else has already used.

So...in no particular order:

1. Sleeping in and waking up completely well-rested.
2. Watching movies by myself with no interruptions.
3. Dancing and singing in my living room when no one's home.
4. Doing the kind of hanging out with friends where you don't really have an agenda, but you're just chilling to chill, and you have good conversations and laugh the entire time.
5. When someone you like genuinely compliments you or laughs at something you say.
6. Driving around aimlessly with music blasting and no one on the road or in the car with you so you can sing to your heart's content.
7. Reading celebrity gossip/looking at pictures...whether in magazines or on the internet. It really amuses me, I dunno why, but I like it. And in the same spectrum, reading my online friends' journals. It's interesting to see how people all over can be going through the same shit as you are. Comforting, too.
8. Making an entire classroom laugh.
9. Shopping trips where I find all the stuff I like on sale and fits me well and leave with plenty of money left over.
10. Being able to have days where I don't have to get out of my PJs or have to leave my room other than for food and potty.

That was actually kind of calming to think about. I really do love doing all of the above. It's good times.

And on that note, I tag: tootdaflute, queenjanine, jetincele, kaylee_kisses, snickerdoooodle, beyonca, omgaw, lovedhurtlost, gkaplergirl44, and saraha.

Have fun with it, kiddos.

This was no accident, this was a therapeutic chain of events. [13 Feb 2006|10:32am]
[Brokeback's got me| calm]

To be incredibly obnoxious and quote Panic! At the Disco, "This was no accident, this was a therapeutic chain of events."


Today is a snow day, which means no school, which means if you read my last entry, I am a happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, happy camper. What would've been probably my most stressful day of the year, or possibly my high school career lol, has become blissfully activity free. *sigh* Sometimes things really do just work out for the best.

Alright, this day calls for finishing up a little bit of homework, vegging out and watching movies.

Yay for unexpected three day weekends. :)

There is at least a foot of snow outside. I didn't think it would actually snow this much, but I guess the good ol' meteorologists proved me wrong. It's all good and fun until you have to shovel. I don't think hell is fire and flames...it's just endless shoveling. Endless shoveling...

Anyhoo, this weekend was pretty amazing. It made up for a crappy two weeks of school monotony and excessive stress. This past week...good gracious. I think I may have gone clinically insane for a moment there. It was ridiculously busy. Between having a ton of tests, a lot of homework, All-District band rehearsals and musical rehearsals, I didn't even have time to think. This week probably won't be much better because I still have fucking All-District band rehearsals and a concert for it, but I think because of my experiences with this past week, I may be able to manage my time a little better. Maybe. Tomorrow will be the true test, which is why I'm PRAYING we don't have school. If we do, I have school, Theory of Knowledge afterwards, a doctor's appointment at 4:50, and AD rehearsal from 6-9. One word. AHHH!!! I'll finally found out whether or not my sinuses are fucked up or not though...I get to see the results of my CATscan tomorrow. Eekers.

Anyway, back to the weekend. So much fun. I took Kaylee home after school on Friday and ended up staying at her house for a bit. Good times. And good rice! :) I was incredibly beat and wanted to sleep that night, but Britt called me and forced me to go out to get Air Ones with her, and despite my better judgement, I let her convince me to go with her. We ended up having so much fun. We didn't even get the shoes! We drove through the ghetto to get to Kahunaville and flirted with the short but adorably cute cashier guy there who gave us our cute cheap-ass bracelets. Brittanie was worried about getting carjacked, but as she pointed out, her car blended in quite well in the neighborhood lol. There was like a Benz next to her, and then her like 1986 Mitsubishi manual, or whatever the hell she has lmao. We ended up going on a ride through the valley too, and going on "Cult House Road" as its nicknamed. It's this house rumored to house a cult, they think it was the KKK, and it's said to be so evil that no trees on the road, (the valley is FULL of trees), face towards it. We went there and omg. Fucking insane. Not one tree faces towards the house. Not one! Every single branch is facing away from the house. It's so scary. Britt and I were like pissing our pants. I usually don't get freaked out by stuff like that, but it was such an unnatural phenomenon.

Saturday I had musical rehearsal in the morning, then headed over to Becca's at night. Her, Kaylee, and I had a great time. We watched Jarhead, (word to Becca and her dad's China trip connections!) I love that movie. So good. Then we went sledding/snowboarding on this small hill in her neighborhood. We hopped a fence to this playground and were playing on the equipment. We all went down the slide, but because of the snow and ice, you fleeew down it and were like propelled off of it at the end lmao. Good times. This morning we played in the snow again with Becca's dog. Hehe, it's great when her neighbors look out her front window and see sixteen and seventeen year olds wearing snow pants and overalls throwing snowballs at a dog and hiding and fake Sumo wrestling in the snow. Fantastic. That's what awesome weekends are made of. :) I think I gained like ten pounds just by spending 24 hours at Becca's house. HER MOM IS THE MOST AMAZING COOK EVER! It's so good...so good...

Alright, well, unfortunately, my great weekend has to be topped off by a shitload of homework. Of course. Ah well...I've done it before, I'll do it again. Hope you guys all had a great weekend as well, and that all you East Coasters are enjoying the snow while you can! ♥
