Stagnant [28 Jul 2007|11:50am]
[ mood | Furious ]

So funny story....not moving to Virginia.  At least the egg on my face may act as some sort of facial.

Luckily i got my job back, and only lost $35 in application fees for the apartment....but still....kind of ruined a friendship in the process.

So i'm left still living in southern maryland.  We'll see how it goes.

2007 just changed my entire Life [02 Jul 2007|01:51pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

Ok, so i am acknowledging that this is the year of change.  I moved to Maryland, broke up with my long term boyfriend, bought my first new car, dyed my hair brown, and lost a ridiculous amount of weight.  But i figured that would be enough for one year....seeing as we are only just past the halfway marker.  Apparently i was wrong.

So i interviewed with a job in Virginia Beach, looked at apartments, and am thoroughly satisfied.  I just got the call today that they were offering me the job, that i can come and put my name on the lease of the apartment that i love with a roommate that i adore, and i'm slowly thinking about going back to blonde.  

I think i am really changing the entire course of my life, and i have never been happier.

So today is one of those lazy days before i have to go to work where i don't have much to do for the afternoon...in all my professional garb and loveliness, i'm bouncing around my room like an idiot to selections from my iPod including "Ain't No Other Man, Fat Bottom Girls, You Can Be Loud as the Hell You Want (when you're making love), Special, and my personal favorite ..... Fergilicious. Yes, i know every word to every song, and yes, it was ridiculous and awesome.

I forget that i used to do this all time when i was stinting at school. But now i'm not really stinting...just bouncy. It's happy making.

Transition Period my Ass [22 Apr 2007|12:36am]
[ mood | emboldened! ]

So I am posting an actual post. Kudos to me. I have decided to have a new life strategy. For those of you who know me, I’m not precisely what one might describe as open and honest with everyone I meet. In fact, I have what could be called “walls” around pretty much everything I do, think, and say. This has kept me relatively safe and protected for most of my life. However, I do realize that I have alienated possibly amazing friendships because of them, and pushed the wrong people out and let the wrong people in. So now, I am giving up on following my rules. I am going to be uninhibited. I am going to throw my proverbial caution into the wind and just see what happens. I will not plan every moment, I will not analyze every word, I will just live and let go.

However, I say this with more conviction than I feel, as I am in what one may refer to as a ‘transition period” and am prone to do ridiculous things. However, I feel as if I have been too safe and guarded and that I must do ridiculous things to actually be happy and full. In the past, I have written about not feeling fulfilled, or happy, or alive in my life, but more struggling through. This is my newest attempt at rectifying this feeling. So now, if I want to smile at someone across the room, I will. If I want to kiss someone, I will. If I want to strut my sexy ass down the mall like I’m on America’s Next Top Model…I will. So here is to my mid-year resolution! Here’s to me keeping it for more than a weekend!

Yeah...That's right...Quizzes [17 Apr 2007|08:30pm]
[ mood | amused ]

You Are Death

You symbolize the end, which can be frightening.

But you also symbolize the immortality of the soul.

You represent transformation, rebirth of a new life.

Sweeping away the past is part of this card, as painful as it may be.

Your fortune:

Don't worry, this card does not predict death itself.

Instead it foreshadows the ending of an era of your life, one that is hard to let go of.

But with the future great new things will come, and it's time to embrace them.

Mourn for a while, but then face the future with humility and courage.

What Your Soul Really Looks Like

You are a wanderer. You constantly long for a new adventure, challenge, or eve a completely different life.

You are a grounded person, but you also leave room for imagination and dreams. You feet may be on the ground, but you're head is in the clouds.

You believe that people see you as larger than life and important. While this is true, they also think you're a bit full of yourself.

Your near future is still unknown, and a little scary. You'll get through wild times - and you'll textually enjoy it.

For you, love is all about caring and comfort. You couldn't fall in love with someone you didn't trust.

Yeh, that's right...guess! [11 Apr 2007|11:09pm]
[ mood | amused ]

Now i realize that a lot of my favorite movies have very strange key words....so no points off if you can't figure out most of them.

* Go to IMDB.com and look up 10 of your favorite movies.
* Post three official IMDB "Plot Keywords" for these 10 picks.
* Have your friends guess the movie titles.

1.) Alcoholism / Train Station / Cafe Owner
2.) Flatulence / British Comedy/ Boyfriend Girlfriend Relationship
3.) Dead Parents/ DC Comics / Damsel In Distress
4.) Expatriate / Aquarium / Obituary
5.) Vineyard / Fear Of Flying / Eiffel Tower Paris
6.) Romantic Obsession / Fall From Height/ Psychological Drama
7.) Train Crash / Survivor / Good Versus Evil
8.) Grape / Midlife Crisis / Wine Tasting
9.) Teen Romance / High School Basketball / Clique
10.) Death During Filming / Vigilante / Based On Comic Book/ Dark Fantasy

Enjoy! (i actually went back and made it a little easier...because i felt that the first three keywords for some of the films were just ridiculous. So if you know me, and you know movies, you should be ok!)

Updates of Sorts [08 Apr 2007|06:32pm]
Hello Friends. So here is my lovely update so that you don't think that i'm dead...or obsessing with on-line quizzes (which i almost always am anyway...so no change there). However, i have finally gotten sick of my job at the department store and handed in my two week resignation. However, i quit right on the coattails of getting a promotion at the hospital, so i will still be making about the same amount of money while doing less work. I am pleased. Plus, i no longer have to put up with inept managers, petty coworkers, and in-store drama. So at least there is that.

In other news...I have gotten obsessed with reading again...seeing as i now have the time to devote to it. Now, i know that i am always reading one book or another, but i now have decided that i want to read a hundred books by next April, and i fully plan to count the two that i've finished so far during this month. However, i am always looking for something new, so if you have any recommendations for me (i have a liking for murder, self- discovery, and dystopias) let me know. I have to average 8 books a month...and i'm already falling behind. So my burden is now on you.

Nothing much to report other than that. I plan on coming home for Senior Ceremony, so Alana, Dave, and John...beware. I'm cooking up something wonderful, bitter, and biting for all of you. If i can't stay with my lovely ladies of 177E, would someone please volunteer a floor for me to sleep on? Otherwise i may have to force some poor sap to buy me a drink and let me stay with him for the weekend...which would probably be inadvisable.

My mood has been all sorts of bouncy and peppy and the like. I'm not entirely sure why, although i have my theories. It snowed down here...and i was pleased. I love the snow and the cold. I miss Philadelphia like no one's business.

On that rather nostalgic note...i will leave my random ramblings (and other such alliterations) for another time. Happy Easter!

The Part of You That No One Sees

You are lively, dramatic, and flamboyant.
You have an outrageous personality...
And you secretly resent anyone who makes you tone it down.

Underneath it all, you are driven by your need for attention and acceptance.
You need to feel special at all times.
You are secretly jealous and occasionally insecure.

Your Passion is Green

For you, sex is always fresh and new.
You approach sex with innocence, even if you aren't as innocent as you seem!
Gentle and slow, you aren't exactly known for your passion.
But what you lack in smooth moves, you make up for in sweet charm.

I feel better, now you're gone
Bathing in the sunlight can,
Take away your whole life, still
There's something about you.

Once or twice, Everything was,
 lined up straight.
That's something you could never trust.
There's something about you.

In a clear spot,
Did you think that I would call?
'Cause sometimes I don't feel like talking at all.

I'm better now you're gone.
Bathing in the sunlight is,
Nothing you could, ever trust.
There's something about you.

In a clear spot,
Did you think that I would, call?
'Cause sometimes I don't feel like talking at all.

I'm better, now you're gone.
Bathing in the sunlight is,
Nothing you could, ever trust.
There's something about you.

There's something about you.

Updates [21 Feb 2007|08:34am]
[ mood | calm ]

Hello All.

So this is my cursory update of the live journal. As i'm sure all of you have facebook stalked me (yes Tiffany, i'm speaking to you) you probably have noticed that Dan and i have broken up. I appreciate all the offers to castrate, maim, destroy, and kick him really hard in the shins, i do, and i assure you, that if i felt the inclination i would have taken care of these things on my own, however it's really not like that and would appreciate such proposals to cease.

I'm doing fine, i promise. Dan and i talked when i went down to visit him yesterday and we really have grown apart in the past few years. Maintaining a long distance relationship when you're intellectual interests have started to diverge is difficult. We're taking some time off to see how things go. I always would have thought i would have regressed to the opendiary days and posted hateful little melodramatic song messages, or blazed up the screen with snide insults and slanderous accusations, but apparently i'm not twelve anymore.

Although i am not pleased with how such events panned out, i do believe that this is probably for the best if Dan and i are ever going to have a future together again. So thank you for your lovely e-mails and facebook messages, i really do appreciate them. I promise though that i'm not curled up in the fetal position on the floor. However, if you want to take me shopping to clear my head, and buy me lots of new clothes, that would be appreciated. That is a coping mechanism that i can fully get behind. Anyway, i figured i would put this in my livejournal so i would stop having to give the same speech to everyone each time they call me and the like.

In other news...the department store where i work was robbed at gunpoint last night...so at least i didn't get shot in the face. See, things are looking up for me :o)

This was amusing [07 Feb 2007|09:30pm]
Your Personality Is

Rational (NT)

You are both logical and creative. You are full of ideas.
You are so rational that you analyze everything. This drives people a little crazy!

Intelligence is important to you. You always like to be around smart people.
In fact, you're often a little short with people who don't impress you mentally.

You seem distant to some - but it's usually because you're deep in thought.
Those who understand you best are fellow Rationals.

In love, you tend to approach things with logic. You seek a compatible mate - who is also very intelligent.

At work, you tend to gravitate toward idea building careers - like programming, medicine, or academia.

With others, you are very honest and direct. People often can't take your criticism well.

As far as your looks go, you're coasting on what you were born with. You think fashion is silly.

On weekends, you spend most of your time thinking, experimenting with new ideas, or learning new things.

Insert Sappy Song Here [19 Jan 2007|08:21am]
Love of mine some day you will die
But I'll be close behind
I'll follow you into the dark

No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
Waiting for the hint of a spark
If Heaven and Hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs

If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

In Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
And I held my tongue as she told me
"Son fear is the heart of love"
So I never went back

If Heaven and Hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs

If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

You and me have seen everything to see
From Bangkok to Calgary
And the soles of your shoes are all worn down
The time for sleep is now
It's nothing to cry about
Cause we'll hold each other soon
The blackest of rooms

If Heaven and Hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs

If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark
Then I'll follow you into the dark
