this one is for brent since i have been slacking lately on the updating. i've been kind of busy. well not so much this past week..but the past month or so since i've updated.

there really isn't a lot to report. i'm happy...with everything but school. i'm so burnt out with school and i still have a year and a half left. i went into the wrong major. if anyone knows of a job i can get with a ba in psych let me know.

anyway...break was awesome. i got to see people i haven't seen in months. i know that's not a lot of time, but when you're used to spending everyday with someone...not seeing them in two months is a long break. patrick got to see state college. it was fun. i miss that place...well everything except the weather and classes. i'm moving everyone down here and then i'll have my own personal southern state college. wouldn't that be fun.

so...that's about it. classes start on monday. i have to look for a job. i don't want to.

well i should go. not that i have a lot to do, just going to get going. i hope everyone is doing well.

[ mood | melancholy ]

have you ever felt like you didn't fit into a group that would probably be to your advantage to fit in? and that maybe you screwed something up...

yeah i'm kind of feeling like that now. i may feel differently in the morning...that's if i can get to slee...but right now that's how i feel. it's a feeling i wish i didn't have and i really shouldn't have...it's only been a week and it's not like it's official or anything...

i suck at this stuff...i thought i was doing so well...

i'm going to try and get some sleep...i guess

best weekend ever [16 Oct 2005|10:46pm]
[ mood | happy, sad and tired ]

yep...that's right...anna, becky, and alison came down. it was so much fun. we went out downtown (or uptown as they call it in charlotte), we went halloween shopping (i got a great costume), we watched the game (only penn staters in the bar)...it was awesome. exactly what i needed. i love my girls...the only thing that would have made it better was if jen and julie were here. we called them though...so they were here in spirit.

we are now affectionately calling charlotte the state college of the south. there are so many similarities that it was kind of strange...i've never really noticed a lot of them before this weekend.

anyway...this may be dumb...but what kinds of things would one need to know when getting to know someone? i can't think of any, but i feel like there is something i need to know. any ideas? just let me know.
(edit...i think i am exhausted of questions to get to know someone...they did all the work for me)

okey dokes...well i'm exhausted after all of the excitement of the weekend. i think i need to go to bed.

:)

[ mood | exhausted ]

hmm...what do i want to write about...

i'm doing better than the last entry..had a momentary issue due to some events of the weekend. but it got better after friday night. it was a long one though. I was on my feet 12 hours a day serving some ungrateful race fans and fighting the huge crowds so i could walk around and see stuff. but it was quality time with my mom so that was good.

then on sunday i got to catch up with paul so that was nice. i learned all kinds of things about old friends and people i don't even know (people from paul's school). we realized a lot of people are getting married or continuing their education. however it seems that most of our friends (from what we knew of what was going on...i don't really talk to a lot of people anymore...kind of makes me sad, but i guess that's life or something...) are not getting married. unless they are and we don't know about it. but i realized how out of everything i am. i don't really know what is going on with anyone minus like 4 or 5 people that i still talk to (that is combining high school and college) but again...such is life. we're all busy i guess.

anyway...school's okay. getting along with my colleagues and roomies. the internship is interesting. well...not much else to say...this is for the one or two people who read this...i hope you enjoyed it. if you have any topics that you would like to hear about let me know...and no matt (if you still read this) there are no hot southern guys in my life, but if you know of any go ahead and send them my way.

not that anyone cares... [09 Sep 2005|10:59pm]
but i'm struggling right now with a lot of stuff. not really going to go into it, but i wanted to write it. not that anyone reads this or anything...ok...i'm done...

going to bed...have to be up early

a little social worker rant [31 Aug 2005|04:38pm]
ok...so i just got back from class and i'm upset...but a good upset...like a i found my calling/want to make a difference anger.

it makes me angry that there are women out there who can't get basic resources for themselves and their children, there are families who live in unsafe houses because they can't afford anything else..there are teachers, social workers, and police officers making measly salaries and having to take part time jobs just to make ends meet...but yet there are football players, basketball players, actors and so on making millions of dollars and complaining about what they make coughcoughT.O.coughcough.

now don't get me wrong...i enjoy to watch an occasional football game and T.O. is very good at what he does (as well as some of the other arrogant assholes who play these different sports), but do they really need to make 200X more than those who educate our children or protect our lives?

it just makes me angry that we let this happen...let people live on the streets and children go hungry, but yet these people live in 10 bedroom/14 bathroom houses for one person and still complain about it.

and then we have jobs being cut, but yet prices are going up. so people aren't making any more money but we are being charged for products as if we are. maybe i'm naive and there's more out there, but from where i stand this is what i am seeing.

it just outrages me and makes me want to cry. and maybe i'm off the cuff with all of this and i shouldn't bitch about it, but you know what...i am. i don't normally talk politics or about this stuff, but it's just something that i've been thinking about all afternoon and i needed to voice it...

on a happier note...i'm doing okay...finally getting in the swing of things, found something that i am passionate about and realizes that things are going to be ok...

[17 Aug 2005|01:55pm]
well i'm here...in North Carolina...8 trillion miles away from everyone...with roommates who don't talk to me and no friends...

but i'm sure that will all change. i have an orientation on friday so i'll meet a lot of people in my program then. there were only 23 full time students excepted this year...so i must have been somewhat smart to have gotten into this program. And if I don't make friends with them well then screw NC and in two years i'm moving back to PA. :P

Anyway...no computer yet so i'm in the lab. Friday I will get it...i guess i have to talk to my roommates about the internet thing and how all of that is going to work. damn...it will break my streak of not having a meaningful convo with them...

well there is nothing to tell. I really only update for matt because he complained. So you better still read this dammit or i will come to PA and kick your ass

i hope all are well. i'm gonna get some stuff done on campus and then head back to my little hole i like to call my room.

i don't want to go to school anymore... [10 Aug 2005|09:58pm]
i can't take all of this anymore. i'm so confused as to what i'm supposed to do. i know i have to have the two tests done, but who pays for them. they never mentioned in my interview that i needed them, but i know they need them. the letter i got said i needed it before i even started field placement, but now this lady is telling me to wait until they request it. blah...

i thought i was going to school to avoid the real world for a bit, but everything costs so friggin much and i have no clue how i'm gonna pay for any of it...

i just want to crawl into a hole and do nothing

snackpack..you're the coolest [09 Aug 2005|12:34pm]
[ mood | sleepy ]

i thought i would update you all again on my life.

this past weekend my siblings and i threw a surprise birthday party for my stepmom (and it was a surprise for my father as well) we all lied to them...telling them we had to work and couldn't come up. then when they walked in the door on saturday we were all standing there. my brother made a big fuss about having to lie to his father...funny thing is he told my dad his rotation changed and my father went into his calender and changed all of the days of when my brother worked. that's the only bad part about us lying to him.

but we had a good time...my father and brother were in rare form that night. some highlights:

-my brother is a younger version of my father (especially when they've both been drinking..there were a lot of hugs, kisses and i love you's from both of them)

-my brother dropping my sister-in-law on the ground

-my father's drunk philosophical conversations (anna got one)

-siblings beer bong (my stepsisters are a lot better at it then my brother and i apparently)

-"my bifocals told me that went in" - my father while playing beer pong

-my father stealing my beer during flip cup...he was only supposed to put a little bit in his cup and took the whole thing

-the best part of the night, what i have been waiting to see and have only heard about for four years now... my father passing out outside...he went from sleeping in a patio chair, to the ground beside the deck, to a stair on the side of the house and finally to the patio bench. i hear about all the weird places he has passed out in and i finally witnessed it.


all in all it was a great weekend. i had a lot of fun. it was great to see everyone and hang out with them. i love my family...they are tons of fun...

well i need to get ready for work..i told my boss i'd come in an hour early so she could go golfing. hope you all enjoyed the update...more to come

this one's for matt [03 Aug 2005|11:43am]
since matt left me a long message complaining about me not updating..here's one for him

there's really not a whole lot going on with me. I've been working a lot...getting some money for grad school. i've been getting my stuff together for grad school too. i'm starting to feel a little overwhelmed. there is a lot i have to make sure gets done, but on the plus side i have an internship and a place to live. so that's half the battle. i'm not sure about how this internship will go because i've never done any of the stuff i will be doing for it...so it will be a good learning experience.

i keep getting these emails about orientations...i have 3 orientations and a meet and greet. i think that's a little obsessive if you ask me. luckily one isn't mandatory...it's for the whole grad school. they have seminars on how to write a paper for grad school...would it really be any different than writing one for undergrad. i think i know how to write a paper. i wrote two papers over 20 pages in undergrad (one with alison...so i wrote almost ten pages or so...stupid group members...anyway...) my point is i think i can write a paper...if i have any questions i'll ask becky or julie...they'll both be in grad school too (well law school for one, but still)

anyway..that's really all that has been going on...i don't have any juicy stories about guys because...well there isn't one right now. which can get a little depressing, but i'm ok with it. i'm having a good time.

well i should go...i'm making lasagna again...i'm such a good niece. everyone better come visit me in north carolina...i'll be sad if you don't...

So...i haven't updated in awhile. not that anyone reads this or anything, but i thought i would update anyway...i guess things are going well. i've been working a lot. making some money to pay for this grad school thing. and that's really all i do. i don't really have any friends around here to hang out with so i work and that's all i do.

anyway...i don't have anything interesting to say...i don't even know why i updated...so i'm done

You Are 40% Normal

(Somewhat Normal)









While some of your behavior is quite normal...

Other things you do are downright strange

You've got a little of your freak going on

But you mostly keep your weirdness to yourself






i kind of agree, but when have i ever kept my weirdness to myself

edit: I have since calmed down and thanks to excellent roommates I am feeling better....I think this illness is going to the emotional center of my brain and making it overproduce hormones..

[ mood | tired ]

well...two weeks left in my undergraduate college career (3 if you count finals). not real sure when that happened. it went by way too fast. i'm not sure how i feel about leaving. i'm ready to start a new chapter in Charlotte, but i don't want to leave these guys. although not many of them are still going to be in state college, but most of them will be in pa.

so let's see...what did i learn in my four years. a lot, not that i want to list any of it, but i learned a lot...i think. i don't know...this is kind of a pointless entry....maybe i'll have a better one at the end of the semester. until then i need to start getting ready for class. here's to me not falling asleep at any point during the day...like that will happen. (i haven't been sleeping well apparently and therefore extremely tired during the day)
