I am doing more homework right now than anyone anywhere would ever want to do.

I am starting to think that maybe design isn't what I actually want to do.

I would LOVE to not be sick anymore!

On the upside though, my disaster of a dress looked damn good onstage last night. I hope next week isn't a stressful mess.

So I have decided that I generally don't get excited about coming home anymore. I don't even get to sleep in my bed. I miss my bed so much and now it's gone forever.

The dress that I found for the band banquet is effing perfect. We got locked out of the car today.

A really cute, short twenty year old works in Wilson's Leather and I bought some cheap new shades. My mom is watching an old, boring show. It was definitely a bad idea to tell her about Tell Me You Love Me and then attempt to watch it with her. I didn't make it through the first ten minutes before I had to leave to avoid the awkwardness.

Tomorrow, Jill and I are going to do something. Don't know what, yet.

I got turned down for a lovely picinic lunch. Is that how you spell that? Anyways, I didn't feel great about that. I thought it was a good idea.

My mom shut the dog out of the garage and stole a puppy for me to play with for a while. She had eleven but two died so I got to hold one of the remaining nine. Their eyes aren't open yet and all they do is sleep and eat now. They will be quite boring for another couple of weeks.

I really wish I had time for a job.

Yay for winning the first home game!

Also for a really fun theatre party on Friday night.

Not so much for guys who are great except for one thing. These are guys who say the nicest things you've ever heard to you and then don't call. If he's too busy for me, that sucks so much. We've known each other for a while, but I want to get to know him better. I want to spend more time with him. I realize how great that could be. I don't want to be one of those girls who calls always, so I haven't actually had a chance to say any of these things. I don't want to come on too strong so soon, even though things have happened that would make these things make sense.

It's not so great when you have to keep yourself busy and underneath everything that's going on in the here and now, you're only thinking of one person. I just want him to be consistent!

Ah well. Laundry and homework.

First game of the season was pretty awesome. We cried only a little, and we yelled a lot, and we danced like we do. So something always happens when Brandie, Veronica and I are together on trips, and V managed to set off a smoke alarm with a shower. We got five hours of sleep and then got up at six a.m. to get ready. I didn't get a turkey leg. :-(

The bus ride was pretty good compared to the last one we took. I met an interesting boy in the band, I did a fan dance at a truck stop, and got my Spartan fix when somebody put in the movie 300. The band is now my hero for getting the Spartan chant down.

I have an entire suite to myself and no one to share it with...

I have to go and find some watercolor paint now.

Big gap. I'm back at school and I would be absolutely loving it if my financial aid wasn't all fucked up. So I basically have no money right now and, officially, no classes. I went to my first class this morning though, and told her that as soon as I got that all straightened out, I would be officially re-adding it to my schedule.

Band camp was good, the same as every year. The colorguard is a bit smaller this year, but not by much, if I'm remembering correctly. Veronica, Brandie and I are back together and it makes things bearable when they get crazy, and yes, even though we've only been here since Wednesday, they have gotten crazy. But Grace said, before everything began, that we weren't going to have drama.

Being friends with the ex has been working out so far. I'm slowly getting to the point of not caring about things. It'll be a lot easier once I don't care so much anymore, but it's hard.

Your parents and various other elders like to tell you to concentrate on school and not to worry about the opposite sex at all, but it's very difficult to do that, especially when you are really missing that element in your life. It sounds a little pathetic, I think. Maybe.

When I saw her before coming back to school, Megan said to me, "Somebody's on the prowl." And it was quite funny. I like to use the term "boy crazy" myself... :-P Anyways, once everyone calms down, it might be easier to meet people and connect with others. I hope so, anyway.

I'm excited about everything. No, really.

Despite a few crappy reminders of the not so great parts of the past year, things have been pretty nice.

I have a few really good new friends and I'm out more. Since I moved into the new building a few weeks ago, I haven't been there very much...which is why I am cleaning up like crazy today. I usually go home, sleep, eat, get clean, go to work and come back to change and all that good stuff, then I'm off. But that's only if I have time. Lots of times (most times) I need to sleep because I have a couple of twelve or fourteen hour days in a row.

My honorary sister, Concetta is gone and that makes me sad. hopefully Spain with happen, though, and like I said, I have made a few new friends.

Gibram is a lovely boy from the Dominican Republic who shares quite a few interests with me. The second day I knew him, he told me this sad story about how he's been in love with his best friend since the seventh grade. When you hear a story like that, even though you know she probably won't change her mind any time soon, you still root for him. He sings and that's nice. He also helps me with my Spanish. His best friend here in the program is Batiste. Batiste is a very nice boy from France. He's considerate and polite, and cooks very well.

Brian Shaughnessy is now my closest friend here. I met him while working at the MGM character room because he's a character performer. I always meet nice people and he's one of the nicest so far.

Yesterday I saw Ocean's Thirteen with Adam, a boy who works as a tech at Lion King. Since I stay backstage all the time, costumers and techs are the only people I really talk to, and seeing as how he seems to be the only tech under the age of thirty five, it just worked out. I think he goes to school in New York.

Laundry has been finished for a long time, so I must go and sort that out.

So what's up with me wanting to eat every five minutes today? No se, but I do know that I've been such a cow...

So I admit that I haven't been very excited to see Spiderman 3 until this very moment. James Franco's face makes me sad ninety seven percent of the time, but Tristan and Isolde (though I hate watching it) makes me like looking at him. It's weird. As long as he can manage to look angry more than sad, I think I'll be fine.

The Yaris is so damn cute. So are the commercials.

Why should I care where the hell Matt Lauer is???

So I just realized how much I've missed on Heroes. WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING?!

Yay for an eleven and a half hour day tomorrow, whooo! I hope I can stay awake. And when I have to work at MGM character room for three days in a row (and that's only as far as I know), don't be surprised if I start cutting. I hate that place with a passion.

I did get to see Joe for one night, which was nice. I wanted to do something tonight because I actually got off early today, but no such luck. Oh well.

Four hour waits inside clinic waiting rooms suck a whole lot. But at least I don't have strep. Unfortunately, I still have a sore throat.

Every day I look at the Victoria's Secret catalogues on my coffee table and think of all the stuff I want so much but can't have.

I wish there were better things to watch on television.

I bought a romance novel from wal mart. It's a "supernatural romance." Which means vampires with "rippling muscles" and blonde hair that "falls down in soft golden waves." Don't forget the "waves of heat" that result when the two leads "can no longer deny their passion!"

I have finally gotten my laundry done and now I just have a shower.

I am someone I do not like right now.

Please pray that I get this turned around.

I had great fun at Blizzard Beach yesterday with Amanda and Evie. I have seen some things, let me tell you. People wear things and do things that are completely and totally wrong. But there were lots and lots of cute kids around though, so that started to make up for it.

Today I went and saw Festival of the Lion King and it was amazing. I managed to be a little kid and drip my strawberry juice bar down the front of my yellow shirt.

I had been wanting buffalo wings all week and I finally got them tonight when Amanda and I went to Buffalo Wild Wings. We sat outside and then it started raining.

I was intoxicated last night and I called my dad at eleven thirty. He didn't answer. Then he called me back at three in the morning, and I was in bed. I just sounded tired, and not drunk. I don't know why I did that in the first place.

Right now, we're watching Me and You and Everyone We Know. Did I say that I really like this movie?

So it seems that I am only ever here lately to complain. So that's true.

So this is me getting screwed and hurt again because I trust everyone. Twice in a row this time.

I figured that since he'd apparently lost interest in me, he was fucking someone else. It was something I had mostly accepted. But I didn't think that it would be with a girl that I know. A girl who knew the situation between me and this guy. This girl works with my roommate. When she told my roommate about this, she said that "she feels bad about it." But when you later say quite excitedly that this guy has said that he "has plans for you tonight," we can tell that you really don't feel bad at all. But everyone says that they're sorry.

The fun part about it is that just before my roommate came out to tell this story to us, I was telling my friend that I was hoping that I wouldn't see a pattern emerge in my relationships. By that I mean that the first one I found liked me well enough until he found someone more interesting. The second one I found liked me a little more, loved me even, and then he found someone else interesting. Then this.

So with the exception of the lovely Des and my wonderful Megan, everyone else I know has had a shit time in the relationship department lately. Claire agrees. The relationships of everyone she knows, she says, have come apart as well.

I said to Evie, "Something really, really good is coming together for us in the future. There has to be."

I have to stay happy! I can't be one of those people who is upset all the time. Fine job I'm doing of it so far!

Ah well.

I had fun last night. And tomorrow is going to be a good day.

Holy shit. Excuse me while I jab a pen into my eye. If I have to hear my roommate talk about speaking French or doing French things or buying French things or someone who is going to help her with French, or if I have to listen to her talk about her job and how they say she talks to guests too much, or how they don't give guests enough food, I'm going to turn into a crazy bitch.

If I have to listen to any more country or easy listening "from the sixties, seventies, eighties and today," I am going to hurt someone.

If I don't get off property soon, I am going to have a breakdown.

So life is obviously great right now.

I want to be home for just a couple of days. But for now, I'm going to go see if there is anything to do that won't make me want to jump the fence and run onto the highway.

So yeah. This is me feeling like the biggest idiot ever. Because I keep doing that thing where I keep saying things before I think them through. And then I do that thing where I ask myself, "what the fuck is wrong with you?" As if the situation wasn't bad enough...

But that isn't the only reason. Someone made me realize just how sad I'm going to be when May rolls around. I miss my friends.

I know exactly what I want but I can't get it.

My roommate is gonna be home and I hate it. She's going to talk and I hate it.

Right, and I probably won't be doing anything this week. Eh.

So I am so glad that I woke up this morning and realized that I've started on a Monday. The obsessive compulsive side of me is glad that it's at the beginning of the week, nice, neat, and easy to keep track of. On the other side, IT'S MY EFFING PERIOD and I have to work today. Eh.

I watched another water birth this morning and I've just seen a couple of weddings. Personally, I'd be quite upset if no one could find my groom until ten minutes before the start of the wedding.

All right. If I don't start getting ready now, I'll either be running for or miss the bus.

Time:1:58 am.
Last night I went out. When Jackie and I were out doing some grocery shopping, I was saying to her that I'm sick of never having anything to do and being stood up by friends who say we're going to get together and then do something else. So she decided that everyone was going to go to Buffalo Wild Wings and I was going to drink before we left.

I had quite a good time. A friend came over and hung out with me (and my sweet new radio!) while everyone else got ready and that was fun. As far as the pregaming went, I was very well taken care of by the time we left. I spent most of my time at BWW talking to just a few people and wished that I could go dancing. I really must go dancing soon.

I thought that my night was over when we got back to the apartment and then I had a bit of good luck. Jackie and Heather drunk together is hilarious to watch.

I slept so good.

I miss Brandon (insert sad face here).

I've made a date to go and see 300 again. I can't wait.

My grandmother turned 95 yesterday.

I am quite pleased with life right now and if I didn't have to go to work tomorrow, everything would be just perfect.

So this is me resisting the urge to call that number that I haven't erased from my phone book yet.

Not doing a good job either.

Life has certainly been interesting lately. When you have six girls in one house, it's an experience in itself. When you begin adding in our friends, it gets better (and a little louder). When more than half of those girls start meeting guys... I'll just say that the conversations get more interesting and in some cases (Amanada!) more emotional. And let me just say that boys do stupid things that have adverse effects even when you're just friends.

So far, I've seen 300 twice, and since my roommates haven't seen it, I'll be going a third time.

Last night I went to an Irish pub with Jackie and Heather and their friend Shawne (I think that's how you spell it). I drove because I can't really drink during a night out.

I start training today at Epcot and since I kind of hate the schedule already, I really hope it's fun. As long as there are good people, I'll enjoy myself.

For now I've got to find out my new bus route and get a quick shower.

Subject:My sadness for today...(because there's one for every day)
Time:7:41 pm.
Please Remember Me
(Rodney Crowell/Will Jennings)

When all our tears have reached the sea
Part of you will live in me
Way down deep inside my heart
The days keep coming without fail
A new wind is gonna find your sail
That's where your journey starts

You'll find better love
Strong as it ever was
Deep as the river runs
Warm as the morning sun
Please remember me

Just like the waves down by the shore
We're gonna keep on coming back for more
'Cause we don't ever wanna stop
Out in this brave new world you seek
Please Remember Me
Tim McGraw

Oh the valleys and the peaks
And I can see you on the top

You'll find better love
Strong as it ever was
Deep as the river runs
Warm as the morning sun
Please remember me

Remember me when you're out walkin'
When the snow falls high outside your door
Late at night when you're not sleepin'
And moonlight falls across your floor
When I can't hurt you anymore

You'll find better love
Strong as it ever was
Deep as the river runs

(*^_^*) Mina
Warm as the morning sun
Please remember me
Please remember me

Time:8:14 pm.
So this is me in Florida.

I haven't stopped since I got here this past Monday. No, really. There's always something I have to do and it probably won't slow down anytime soon. I'll just get used to how things work and it'll be easier to deal with the things that are coming my way. Getting up early to work or go to an orientation sucks because it's cold in the mornings.

I have a new friend. He is a very good looking boy who happens to have one gorgeous green eye and one beautiful blue eye. On his list of goals for this program is to "be with a British man." The French have taken the top of the list, however. This is a goal that I support.

I finally made it to Epcot and I have fallen in love with teeny fake countries. I am going to start collecting glasses.

I went shopping today on the bus and had the misfortune of not meeting any gentlemen along the way who would help me with my groceries. Oh I passed a few people on the way to the very back of the apartment complex, but none who were willing to offer their help. Pissed but not surprised.

I have work at nine tomorrow. I love the fact that the majority of the people I work with are happy Hispanic women. I wish I knew Spanish. I'm going to start working on that. No, really. Christina is from Colombia and she's beautiful. Hortensia is from Guatemala, is very short and sooo cute. Ana is one of the nicest people I've ever met in my life. I keep forgetting to check her nametag for her hometown.

Now I have to go pay to do my laundry and cook dinner. Fun, fun.

(*^_^*) Mina (but at least it isn't freeeeezing here!)
