haven’t done a real, legit update in a while, and since i really should be writing a paper for my communications right now, i figure this is the perfect time…
but since of course i haven’t the slightest clue as to what’s gone on the past couple weeks, i’m just going to break it down into sections and try and discuss each to the fullest as my memory allows.
apartment: i’m finally starting to get settled in here, it’s a really nice place, very comfortable to live in. i haven’t finished unpacking (i’ve still got about 8 boxes or so in my room and in the livingroom that i haven’t bothered touching) because what’s the point? i’m just going to have to pack everything up again in a couple months anyway… i’ve had about 6 addresses this past year alone. i pick up and move every couple months. what’s the point to unpacking? i just live out of boxes now as if they were suitcases… i used to enjoy clutter, i always needed a lot of stuff around me, i liked having ‘stuff’ that reminded me of my friends and stuff i loved, but now i’m starting to be more minimalistic in that i am too damn tired to keep packing and unpacking so much crap that i really don’t need. and plus, my life is scattered all over the country. i’ve got crap in new york, philadelphia, stuff still in los angeles with anthony at my old apartment, stuff in phoenix… i am strangely jealous of people who are settled. part of me wants a house just so i can gather all of my belongings, my ‘life’, and have it all in one location where i know i won’t have to pack it all again in a few months… i’m just so sick of being nomadic, i want somewhere that i can honestly call ‘home’…
roommates: honestly, i was terrified of living with four other girls, five including myself. but they’re all incredibly wonderful and i couldn’t be happier. granted, maddy and i lived together a year ago and she was an incredible roommate, but adding three more girls really made me nervous. but as i said, they’re all wonderful and i am so grateful to be living with them. i am actually having a lot of fun, which is a suprise. emilie bought me a pizza for my birthday. yep, a whole pizza, all to myself. funny how well she knows me already 🙂 and nikki and chrissie are really interesting, sweet girls. i’m glad this is working out as well as it is, and i am very happy to be so fortunate.
classes: midterms are coming up this week, i should really be studying/writing papers, b
ut there will be time for that later considering i slept all day today and probably won’t fall asleep tonight until about 5am… i’m taking 20 credits this term, the maximum drexel allows. statistics, communications, marketing, organizational behavior (a psych class, i love psych) and business law. everything’s actually pretty interesting, i’m doing my best to do the work and study and keep up, so far it’s going ok. i’m hoping for A’s in everything, as usual, but preparing myself for B’s just in case. i’ll know where i stand after midterms… i’m a little nervous now but knowing me, they’ll come and go and i won’t give a shit at all.
car(S!!!): yes you are reading that correctly, that is carS, plural. my G has a friend now. a ’89 240SX SE. pignossseeee. 5spdddd. hatchback! w00t. i can’t wait to go pick her up, hopefully that’ll happen this weekend. thank you john!!!!!!! the G20 isn’t doing well, as usual. i can’t even drive it anymore because i can afford gas or oil, but not both. oh well. hence the arrival of the 240-non-oil-burning-87octane-using-beater. i am trying to gather the rest of the parts i need for the new motor build for the G, but i ran out of money a long time ago. then i still need to get the damn thing assembled. oh well. hopefully that’ll happen before summer is over but i sincerely doubt it. i feel guilty. i feel like i am negl
ecting her, or maybe like i’m abusing her. she’s suffering so much and there’s nothing i can do to make it better…
21st bithday/formula d/tha boyfriend: fun weekend, got to hang out with a lot of really great people who i hadn’t seen in a longggg time due to the entire continental united states being in the way. it was cold as hell, i was sick (allergies, you suck!), but overall it was fun. spent friday night in jersey with the boyfriend, had a lovely cuddle/sleep/hump fest, he makes me so happy. it always suprises me how much i miss him, when i see him again after weeks. and it also really really suprises me that i haven’t gotten bored with him, because usually i move on relatively quickly, but if anything, with him, i am getting *more* into him as time goes on. drove back to philly late saturday night, slept late sunday, went for steaks, then dropped him at the airport. i’m 21 now. yay. or something to that extent. it doesn’t even matter, i really don’t care at all about being ‘legal’.
this past weekend: was a lot of fun, patrick came down to visit friday night, we went to go see that new movie a lot like love, it was really cute, reminded me a lot of us, minus the whole sex thing. haha. hung out till late, i finally fell asleep around 5am, and at 9:30am i am woken by this horribly shrill, piercing, fucking obnoxious clanging/ringing sound, so i stumble out of bed into the living room, and stare at the ‘beer oclock’ clock on the wall making the hideous noise for about five minutes trying to figure out what the hell it was when maddy finally comes out of her room and is like, that’s the fire alarm jackass, get out of the building!’ so everyone kinda trickles out of the apartment building, (5 stories), and we’re all just standing on the street staring blankly at the building, confused as hell. after about 10-15 minutes, i realize that nobody’s showing up. no police, no fire department, nothing. i didn’t know if the building was actually on fire or not because i couldn’t see any smoke, but the damn alarm was still ringing and i wanted to go back to bed, so i called 911 to complain that my house was ringing or something and they eventually sent the fire department and it took about a half an hour to get it to shut up. there was no fire after all. i tried to go back to sleep but i couldn’t because i had such a bad headache from that damn alarm. ugh. so later on that day patrick wanted to go play the initial d arcade game at the neshaminy mall, so we went, and i wound up actually shopping. it was bad. but sooo good. for some reason there was an extra $100 in my bank account, so i figured, i haven’t bought new clothes in over a year, goddamn it i deserve it. i got 5 tops and some underwear for under 100 and i am so happy. but then i got home and i got really mad
at myself. like, how incredibly irresponsible am i to go out and spend a hundred dollars on fucking clothes that i really don’t even need but i can’t afford to buy food? goddamn my priorities are fucked up. and i am really *really* mad at myself… but at least i’ll look pretty tomorrow. *ugh*
fun quote from this weekend:
patrick hey maddy, while you’re up, can you get me some milk?
me just because she’s black doesn’t mean she’s your slave patrick
maddy i’m only half black! i got you the cake, but i ain’t gettin you the milk!
future plans: nhra at englishtown this weekend to cheer on garrett, hopefully picking up the 240, then who knows, then nhra at atco, then semaias.
there was a lot more i wanted to update about, but right now, i really can’t remember all of it… i’ve been too busy to remember much of anything…. blah.
