Had the good bye BBQ today at my house which was very fun but also very sad. Reality is starting to set in....

Exactly 2 weeks until the big move. Nervous? A little. Excited? Absolutely. Wanting to leave and get it over with, already? You can say that again.

I feel like some facebook stalker everytime I browse through the various profiles of my fellow classmates. I'll look at their pictures and make my unspoken judgements (which, of course, I would NEVER speak aloud except maybe to close confidentes just for our own amusement) and then remind myself that I'll be spending the next 4 years of my life with these people. Really think about that... everytime I click on a new profile to check out I'm looking at a person that may grow to be my best friend, my worst enemy, or that weird kid who doesn't talk and likes to build towers with his used gum wrappers. It's like a madlib into my future with the details left out.

As I continue to browse over profiles, I also wonder what people assume when they look at mine. What prejudged category do I fall under? Naturally, I'd love to think some random gorgeous intelligent young man would see it and think of me as his diamond in the rough, but for all I know it could also be a gross sweaty prick who becomes obsessed. It's everyone's first impression of me and I'm not even there to see how it goes!

Alas, I'll only have to wait it out to see who I befriend, who I fall in love with, and who I wish will explode into many little human pieces. Until then, I plan to continue my current position as official facebook stalker with pride and somewhat dignity. Who knows, maybe that cute guy I'm looking at will turn out to be my Prince Charming and that other girl IS really as bitchy as she looks.

And now if you'll excuse me, I have profiles to criticize. A Bientot =D

A letter came in the mail today announcing where and with whom I'll be living for the next 8 or so months.

I'll be in Branford House room 219 with roommates Eliza Jackson and Hannah French, both from New England. It looks pretty nice... we're on the second story in the center of campus. Looks pretty reasonable.... I'll have to walk for meals, though. I was hoping I'd have a dining hall in the same building but whatever, its all good =)

The summer after senior year is supposed to consist of parties, beaches, and lots of time with friends. Mine is mostly going to work, napping, and going through loads of cash.

I've grown increasingly anxious about moving to the east coast for college. It's a bit of excitement and fear combined into one indescribable emotion and it's eating away at my inards as we speak. I don't think I'm nervous because of how I think I'll be accepted into the college community. I'm not too worried about that, to be quite honest. I'm more nervous about what I'm leaving behind in beautiful California. I've been blessed to have an amazing family with whom I'm very close with, and my cat is my soul mate. Withoutme, this family could very well crumble but I'll do my best to be the glue holding us together a mere 3000 miles east.

On another note, I'm worrying more and more about my dad. For those of you that don't know, my dad was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1991 when I was 3 and my brother was 1. Since then he's had to stop working and go on disability, and has more and more diffaculty performing everyday tasks. I don't know if I've fully come to terms with it. I just want it to STOP. Let my dad be healthy... let him just live life without straining to speak or not being able to balance without help. JUST LEAVE HIM ALONE

It's the root cause of a great deal of my frustration. It's not fair. I see so many people pissing their lives away takin for granted some things that other people who work their asses off don't have. It's depressing, really.

I'm writing a very emo post, aren't I? Well.... I'll stop.

I find out who my roommate is soon! *cue excitement*

It's good to know that I'm on the rise and you'll always be failing

This week has been rough. Worked for about 8 hours a day and still found time to see Ben, Lili, Hyun-Shin, Bryce, Gracie, and Alysa. Today was slightly less stressful, but good ol' mom made sure there was at least a small dose of anxiety. I still need to make a doctors and dentists appointment before I head off to Connecticut.

Haven't had much time to write in my LJ, which is a bit sad considering I have a lot bottled up waiting to be said. Certain revelations about worldly events, interesting things that happened throughout my day, just some thoughts to taste. I'd give my little blog here more effort if I thought people gave a shit about it. Well, I guess SOMEBODY does considering they used it against me when I was supposed to speak at graduation.

Oh, that reminds me-


Well then again, that IS a given.


Things are going along fine. Getting a little nervous before the big move to the east coast, but I know I can handle it. I just need to relax a bit.

I guess I'll head off to bed. More to come soon.

Suprisingly enough, I'm enjoying my summer job as a lifeguard/swim instructor at the Northwest YMCA. The people there rock, I get paid pretty damn well, and I don't have to exert too much energy! Life is good.

I just found out that Molly (whereismolly) works at the front desk, too. She's pretty fucking awesome, as is Laura who also woks in aquatics with yours truely. I didn't even know Laura worked there until Molly told me! I just don't see her cuz she works different ours than I do, so whatev.

For the next two weeks I'm working 21 hours a week. Oh baby, that spels lots of money and lots of fucking headaches.

I got a good laugh out of this one

Cindy Sheehan, the mother whos 24-year old son died in Iraq, is among many who plan to partake in a "hunger strike" called Bring the Troops Home Fast. They're going to have a last meal in front of the White House and then not eat until the troops are brought home.

In response, all I can say is: Enjoy starvation, bitch. I bet anorexics all across the country will flock to the White House so they can claim their not eating "for a cause." Maybe we should send some fatasses there too. Why not lose a few pounds while hanging out with Cindy Sheehan? Sounds like a fucking good time to me!

I hate war protesters. Even if I don't agree with the war (which isn't the case entirely, but I have my own opinions regarding such matters which are both liberal and conservative for different issues) I wouldn't just set up fucking signs whininig about it. I would get mass amounts of people to send letters, boycott government organizations, raise money to send to the troops for better armor, send the troops gift packages with food and magazines and anything else that might make their stay more tolerable, educate children thinking of joining the military on what that might mean, ACTUALLY VOTE! So basically if you didn't vote, you have no right to say anthing ever. EVER. You can bitch and moan by yourself.

Europe Trip: Part I

It's day 3 here in London, and so far the trip has been pretty awesome.

Yesterday on the underground this weird homeless guy was ranting about how Bush was Hitler and all this conspiracy theory stuff and I found it hilarious. He just sort of meandered up to me and started ranting. I couldn't stop laughing (not because I didn't agree with him, but because a fucking homeless guy is screaming bloody murder at me on my first day in Britain). I told him my family and I were from San Francisco and he replied with, "oh well people there are just fucking hippees who are too tweaked out from their last LSD trip to fully comprehend what society has spiraled into" and then I think he left. I was near tears from laughing. I wish I took a picture.... or video footage =)

So then we went to the British museum which was beyond cool. I saw the Rosetta Stone which was truely amazing.... it's so well preserved! It looks like it could've been carved just yesterday. I took pictures and then checked out the Roman and Greek section of the museum which was really interesting. They had actual statues from the Parthenon!! These things are thousands of years old! I was in heaven because yes, I'm a museum nerd and I like spending hours in museums looking at ancient crap. So shoot me.

After we left the British museum we headed to the London Eye. The London Eye is that ferris wheel looking thing that's right on the river. You go up in it and can see the entire city from way up above. It was gorgeous! Completely beautiful.

Well my time limit from the internet cafe is running out so I better be going. I'll be checking in as often as possible!! Miss everyone very much, but can't wait to see more stuff!
