Countdown to College!

10 New Things Since My Last Post

1. My hair is now red. A purple streak will be added when I'm home for Thanksgiving.

2. I kinda know how to make a website, and will be designing one for Ervin's Inc, also during Thanksgiving break.

3. I went on a genuine first date. This was quite awhile ago, but it was a new experience. It was the best date I've ever been on, and it was with someone I didn't know before. He turned out to be less than desired, but it was still a good run.

4. At least one awesome concert a month. There's an excellent venue called the Vaudeville Mews just a couple minutes away (driving) that brings in indie rock groups that rock my socks. I also saw Cage the Elephant, Manchester Orchestra, and Silversun Pickups in concert in September. Look them up if you don't know it. It's worth your time.

5. I lost ALL my music, but got it back again. My external hard drive that had all 50 gigs of my music decided to die, but it revived itself somehow... It was the shittiest two months of my life.

6. Glee is one of my favorite shows. I thought I was going to hate it, but now I'm an addict. It makes me happy. I want to sing. Watch It NOW!

7. I miss home. I love it here, don't get me wrong, but I'm SO ready to go home for a while. Even Christina, my other half, the love of my life, my roooommate, is starting to drive me crazy. We need a break. Too much of each other. Plus I miss Mommy. And I want turkey. And mashed potatoes. And green bean casserole. And Pie. Mmmmm, Pie.

8. A GPS is at the top of my Christmas list. I have a good sense of direction, but apparently, I get lost easily. I know, shocking. Someone get on that, please.

9. I'm broke. A college student that has no money. Again, shocking. However, it's fairly new to me. I'm really used to having spending money. And NOT overdrafting my account once a month. Oops...

10. I'm a klutz. Ok, this one isn't new either, but I have sustained some new and colorful injuries at Drake, including, but not limited to: falling off my bed and hitting my leg on the dresser, re-spraining my ankle several times, acquiring rather severe abrasions on my elbow (being a fairy for Halloween does NOT make you graceful), and the most recent, breaking my toe via "abrupt contact with cement." At least that's what my chart at the hospital reads. I got an X-ray after kicking a curb with my bare foot whilst carrying a bunch of things from my car.

Yay me! The first day was rather rough, a definitely emotional roller coaster filled with being friendless and missing my Mommy, but I'm feeling much better. I have a nice little friend base started, so that's good. My roommate, Christina, is pretty damn awesome. We had a nice loooong talk last night about our lives and experiences; pretty much just getting to know each other.

I did, however, re-sprain my ankle (very mildly luckily) while walking down the stairs today. I landed wrong on the last step and my foot suddenly wasn't there, so I laid on my back for awhile, got up, sat, had a ride on the ambulance-golf cart, wrapped it, and now I'm pretty sure I'm perfectly fine. Pretty much a lot of excitement for no reason.

But chea, other than that, so far, Drake is rocking my socks, so YAY!

My fears of a freak for a roommate have been proven erroneous. 
Name: Christina Guerrero.
Occupation: Roommate at Drake.
Position: Awesome.

So far, I have found nothing I don't like. She's a gamer, likes the same kind of music, plays guitar and bass, watches a lot of movies. It's a good time.

I'm pretty stoked.

A Song that No One Sings

One Month, One Day.
I am losing hope that things will get better when I get there.
In fact, I'm starting to believe I will fuck it up as badly as I've been fucking everything up lately. 
Everything I try to do falls apart. I can't even take tape of a freakin wall without failing miserably.

I think maybe I need to do the drugs again. I stopped for awhile. Can't remember why. I think I just kept forgetting and then quit trying to remember. Either way, something's not right and I need to do something different so I don't spiral as bad as last time.

All I feel like doing is crying. It seems like everything I do is wrong. I don't want to keep going like this. I can't keep going like this. I'm losing my will to do anything. All I can think about is what needs done, what I don't have, what I want, what I can't have.  It's killing me. 

I keep telling myself it will get better. I hope its not a lie.

Day by day

WELL It's getting closer. 37 days till move in and getting more and more anxious (in all senses of the word) every day. Still don't have any info on my roommate, should be coming soon though so I can start getting the stuff we still need. I did get an email from my PMAC (Peer Mentor and Academic Consultant) a couple days ago, and the OL's were right: we are going to get along really well. Right now, I'm afraid I'll want to be like actual friends and she'll think I'm an icky freshman. But we'll see. 

My godfather, Bob, and Lori and their son Robbie came out to see us as part of their summer vacation so they're here tonight. AKA I had to be in my room by 11 as to not keep the old geezer up :P SOooooo I'm going to watch movies and snack till I can actually fall asleep.

Land Ho!

Inbox: 78

Of those, 24 are Twitter. 
The rest are from my dad, Ben, and some random friend of the day. It rotates between Liz, Tyler, and Danielle.

I cannot wait for college just so I have friends again. I haven't seen anyone in ages, and when I do run into someone, I have to decide whether to try to avoid them or just go say hi.

This summer is most definitely the worst of my life. The weather sucks, I've been sick, and all I do is babysit and work. I want to do something fun.

I want to go on vacation, but I'm afraid to miss more work. 

No one invites me to do anything cool anymore.

I feel lame.

Actually, I'm sure I get invited to do more stuff than I think, but I don't feel like doing it.
I'm in a rut. Nothing sounds fun anymore. I keep saying to myself that it'll all be better in a month ( and a week and four days, if you note the counter) but that stupid little voice in my head says it'll all be one big disappointment and I won't be happy there either. It's telling me that something is missing but it won't tell me what it is.

I keep wondering if it's a boyfriend, but that can't be it. That's just the other little voice that's jealous of my friends because they're happy. 

A boy wouldn't make me happy. He would tie me down and just make me sad when I had to leave. 

Summer always moves fast. Except for this one. 
I have a feeling the last month of summer is going to drag on even longer than the last month of school did.

On a fun side note:

1591 up346 down love it hate it
To have an extramarrital affair. Stems from the disappearance and subsequent reappearance of South Carolina Governor, Mark Sanford(R). Gov. Sanford was thought to be hiking in Appalachia. In actuality, he was having an affair in the South American country of Argentina.
Girl, I just saw Susie's man hiking in Appalachia.
Its almost 4am.
I can't sleep.
I have a headache.
It really really hurts to yawn.

It's Been Awhile

Well, I kinda forgot about this until I was cleaning out my bookmarks folder, which is a little sad. You'll be happy to know that the issue from that last post has been resolved. He realized how stupid he was and luckily his amazing girlfriend forgave him despite his extreme stupidity. We'll see how college tests them.

So, life was pretty damn good at first, and then I got sick. My throat was bothering me for months, but it was on and off. Then I started running a temp and my tonsils were the size of golfballs for two weeks, so they yanked em a week ago and I've been confined to the couch since. I'm sure it'll be good in the long run, but I'm feelin like complete shit right now.

Ummmm, JeriAnna is staying with us for the next weekish because Jake and Jonica decided to take a trip to Florida and didn't take her because she has summer school, so that's nice. It would normally be more fun for her, I think, but I'm sick and there for Aunt Nicole is no fun so the only upside for her is earning a few bucks helpin me watch Calvin and Malea. Dumb.
Really, I'm just excited for college. I really want to start. Move in August 19, classes start the 24th and I can't WAIT! Orientation was June 4-5 (I chose the earliest one to insure my classes) so I know my schedule for next year, and met a ton of really awesome people. Granted most of them were the upper level students who were just there to show us around, but at least my friends will already know what they're doing, right? =)

I'm taking an intro Journalism class at 8am required for all Jschool students, a Multi-media seminar, a FYS* called Space Matters, Honors Orientation, Astronomy, and Russian.
*the First Year Seminar is a requirement for all incoming first year students. There were 30? classes to pick one and rooming assignments are based on the class roster, SO I'm going to be on a floor with a bunch of nerds ;)

So, basically, I'm stoked beyond belief and the next month.5 can't move fast enough. I've already started packing stuff up.

Well, my sleep schedule is fucked due to sleeping all day, so it's just about my bedtime.
