I have NO MONEY seriously I'm giving plasma next week for gas money i'm really scared of needles though :\ uggh! I need a new job really badly
Fourth was fun, got paid 30 bucks to pick up some chick, and then just hung out with some buddies all night. Justen and I had a nice talk too. He's becoming one of my best friends, and I guess its weird given our history, but I just feel so comfortable around him. lol he's the only guy I can routinely take naps with without it being weird so I guess that pretty much sums us up. I should just have a sleeping bag over at his place since I'm there so often! I'm just really bummed since I can't go on the roadtrip to pick up his girlfriend now that I am completely broke. boo
I really want to see everyone! I wish there were more free things to do
So I just got back from a lunch date with the model. He took me for mediterranean food and we sat and talked for almost three hours. He is probably one of the most interesting people I've met this year, really ridiculously nice, and he even made sure I got home alright even though it was totally out of his way. I feel completely unsure.
I just got an inexplicable urge to write a journal entry. I just realized I really don't have anything to say.
Work has taken over my SOUL. I suppose the average human can only make a certain number of double-tall-sugerfree vanilla-nonfat-extra hot-no foam-lattes before they go insane. I seem to have exceeded this mark by around a thousand. Its not all bad, though. I adore all of my co-workers, and most of my customers are pretty swell too. Heck, my big news for the day revolves around the Hottest Boy Ever (aka the model) giving me his phone number. (although, what IS that? I mean, c'mon, now what am I supposed to do? Its not like I can call him without sounding completely needy, and anyways, shouldn't he have asked for mine instead?!)Its just sooo dramatic lately. It'll be nice to have a break to just relax for once.
Thank god for spring break. I cannot WAIT for Monday. California is going to be amazing, I can just feel it. Jeff, Jess, L.A., and all the roller coaster rides I can stomach. >sigh< Sometimes a girl just couldn't ask for more!
Err, sorry it's been so long since my last post. I really need to get back into the swing of things and actually write in this, instead of just checking my friends list and not actually contributing myself.
Well, what to talk about! Uhm.
ASU is really awesome! I love it LOADS better than UofA (and that's even taking into consideration that I have to ride the bus jammed next to people who's basic hygienic beliefs do not extend to the miracle of deodorant) It just feels, I don't know, different somehow, like it fits me better. Plus, I love how there is always SOMETHING going on, and SOMEONE to talk to, and its just so urban, and youthful, and FUN. The only downside is that I miss everyone in Tucson dreadfully. WHY DOES NO ONE VISIT MEEEEE?
Other news is that I'm now employed at the ASU Starbucks. They feed me and give me money, so I'm good. I need to stop giving away free things all the time though, it's getting a bit excessive. Like, just yesterday I gave a very nice boy a free drink just because he was wearing a firefly shirt. I think it might be a compulsion, or something. Can you have a psychotic compulsion to give things away? On the bright side though, if any of ya'll are anywhere near the ASU union, you should come visit me and get free stuff!
On October 6th the roomies and I are having a proper college party with a proper college theme (stop-light). Anyone reading this is invited to come! Leave me a comment if you're interested!
He makes me like ninjas. This is a problem. (HOMGbutitdoesn'tchangeanythingpiratesstillroxers!!!11)
lol, I love this video sooo much. It doesn't matter how many times I watch it, as soon as the Cher song comes on, I just lose it completely. hee this time, we will do it together!
And finally, it was my brothers birthday party today and one of his friends got him the "oozinator" squirt gun. I really think the commercial speaks for itself. major pumping required *cough* ...hahaha, I think I have the dirtiest mind EVER
YES!!! I am now officially done with freshman year of college...well, at least at the UofA anyways.
I thought this moment deserved some appropriate music, so I've been blaring Queen as loud as my poor laptop's speakers will go. SORRY NEIGHBORS BUT I'M ON A ROCKETSHIP TO MARS AND (I AM) A CHAMPION AND FAT BOTTOM GIRLS MAKE THE ROCKIN WORLD GO ROUND! WOOOOooo!
finals make me go a little crazy. Many apologizes.
err, please ignore the incredibly intelligent post below. What can I say, erudite is my middle name. heehee...?
ANYWAYS, this weekend was fun! Sara Taylor came down to Tucson and successfully addicted Jessica and I to the sweet, sweet deliciousness that IS the crunchwrap supreme. It's my new favorite thing EVAR. We also managed to fit into this crazy weekend a not-really-the-end-of-the-year-but-hey-who's-really-paying-attention-anyways party, a trip to IHOP (mmm man breakfast), 3 more trips to Taco Bell, disco ball accessory shopping, and successfully avoiding doing any real work.
On the not so great side, still haven't heard anything from fricken' fracken' ASU, or the apartment complex. I'm starting to think my idea of being a professional hobo might be smarter than I realized.
BTW and completely off topic, does anyone know when Pinnacle's prom is?
I am so proud of myself. My wrist hurts a little, but I managed to make valentines cards for everyone in my hall, as well as a couple extras. I am the QUEEN of this holiday! Whats even more shocking than the fact that I actually did something instead of my usual lounging around, is that currently, I actually feel pretty content with this day. Seems power-ranger cards have the magical ability to ease militant dislike of a holiday, and turn it into something closely resembling complacent acceptance. Well, either that, or I've had enough chocolate to ease the bitterness of my poor, hallmarked soul. Either one works, really.
I actually have an announcement to make, but it's slightly inflammatory, so I guess I'll just throw it out and hope nobody hurts me too badly for this one. This isn't really a shock for a couple people that I've already told, but I just thought I should announce it all official like, and yeah...I'm definitely stalling. Alright, Just do it quick, like a bandage; I'mgoingtogotoASUnextyearforgraphicdesignandliveinanapartmentwithJessinTempeandpleasedon'thateme There, not so bad. err
Well, I'm home, and I've BEEN home, and I honestly can't say exactly how long thats been since all the days here seem to just blend together in a funny dream-like quality. I feel like it's been forever, but also like I just got here too.
The lead up to Christmas was incredibly frantic (like always), but then the holiday passed easily enough, and now it's back to lazy slowness. I have to say, I made out pretty nicely this year. I got an indian purse, eskimo slippers, dvds (so I can actually contribute to movie nights without just offering Bridget Jones over and over again) and enough books to keep me occupied for awhile.
So yes, I am completely ready to commit ritualized harri kari. All I need is someone to stand over me so that they can lop off my head as a spear myself on my own blade. This whole "slacking off in college like I did in high school and still getting good grades" doesn't seem to be working out so great. I think I need to start looking into alternative choices...
Stats: 2 finals down 2 to go 4 days till I go home (woot!)
Goodbye Phoenix. You taught me so much. You gave me so many memories, experiences and insights that I'll never be able to forget. It wasn't always smooth sailings, but looking back, it all turned out well in the end. You were the longest place I ever lived at.
Lord, I'm OLD! 19 seems far too large a number for me. (not to mention that I'm now on the last year of teenagedom. eek!)I do hope it's a good one though.
I'm so happy :) We had a wonderful snacky lunch of British food (meat pasties, treacle tarts, blackcurrant ribana and an assortment of candy), are soon going to be leaving to get my computer, and then topping the night off with sushi and presents!!!
I have a lot to say, but for now, I think this will do.
well, I just finished watching Bridget Jones, and have come to the realization that I am utterly and completely in love with Colin Firth. He's just, lovely! The accent! The meaningful glances! The utter awkwardness! Lovely I say, lovely!
besides the love of my life, I'm rather tired right now since I spent the day training a fifty year old woman with a college degree how to do my job when I leave. (oh, I got a job at an advertisement office a week or so ago. Terribly boring, so I won't go into it much, let's just say I am now officially Erin, Queen of Notecards) I hate being a soulless conglomerate drone :( Working for The Man really isn't all it's cracked up to be.
er, what else...Oh! I just got back from California. It was SO nice, and I got to go to disneyland for the first time in my life! I think I like disneyworld better, but it's definetly better than Tokyo disneyland given a certain absence of pushy, possibly pedophile pigs and evil sorceresses that one needs to battle to rescue the souls of the undead. (don't ask) I got a Peter Pan hat with a rather nifty red feather on it, so I thought that was pretty good indeed.
I think I'll update later with some pictures from my trip as soon as I get them loaded onto this computer.
Well, thats about it for now. I know these desperate wrap-up posts are tedious, but honestly, if I said I wouldn't do it again I'd be lying, so sorry! I WILL try to post a little more often now, though. Just don't hold your breathe or anything else that could be detrimental to your health. Erin's are known to be both lazy AND forgetful.
I love you all!
(p.s. My mother just informed me that I am far to dramatic for my own good. I can't help it if I'm prone to random bursts of histronics, really! *meaningful sigh* Anyways, am I? really???)
I know it's been a terribly long time since I last did a semi-respectable update on my (very) mundane life, and I do apologize to anyone who actually follows these posts, but given that it's been a while anyways, I suppose it won't hurt too much if I let that particular update wait just a bit longer, in favor of a nice, long and highly nerdy rant instead.
(I really need to do this, seeing as I just finished reading the new Harry Potter book, and find myself stalking from room to room, bellowing at anything that dares get in my way. I daresay, letting myself talk about it should hopefully improve my sanity somewhat, I very much doubt the walls of my room will be able to handle more of my sheer, burning, fire and brimstone glare of d00m! much longer.)
I need help! I really want to get an account on this really cool site (deviantart) BUT, whenever I try to sign up, it tells me there is a ban on my ISP and that I can't get one. I would completely and utterly be in love with anyone if they would be ever so nice as to create an account for me...it's just SO cool!!! *flails arms*
ummm...I feel bad ending this right there, so I'll leave you all with Zorro himself, performing broadway sing zorro, sing!
I really haven't done all that much lately. (I'm such a lazy little bugger)
I guess I should talk about orientation since it was a pretty big deal and all. Tucson...I hate Tucson. Why am I going back there?!? It's just so blah, nothing to do, and the whole atmosphere is just off. (Yes, I'm VERY descriptive today) I just never particularly cared for it when I lived there before, so I'm really not that optimistic about liking it now. UofA is scarily big, it's massive and huge and I KNOW I'll get lost multiple times and end up needing to be rescued more than once because of my terrible sense of direction. ANYWAYS, I was rather nervous the first day when we drove up, 'cause you know, COLLEGE!(du du duuuuh). Weirdly enough, the person who got me over my nervous shakes was about the last person in the world I thought would even be there, let alone talk to me and my mom and be right behind us as we got out of the parking garage. It's weird to be indebted to Zach Foutch. He made it seem like...high school, and then I ended up seeing tons of people from Pinnacle that I know, so it just felt like High School 2.0 (upgrade).
side notes: * No punks, goths, skaters, freaks etc. We had some indie chicks, and I thought I saw some girl pants on a boy, but that was pretty much it for anything counter/sub culture. *polos with popped collars seem to be the dress code *Playboy rated UofA as the most sexually active campus in the country. woo? *people tend to look at you strangely if you make casual reference to NAU as a bunch of "hippie mountain people" *I like salad bars a lot. yay!
so...it was boring and stuff, but I feel A LOT better about going to college now. I just hope the classes aren't too hard....
