I don't ask for much when it comes with this journal, but I'm going to today.
Can you all please keep my dad's family in your thoughts/prayers today?

If I did something wrong with the link, it is a link to my 18 year old cousin, Amber's, obituary. Today is her funeral. It is going to be a hard day for all of us.


Thank you.

Yesterday was fun day!
Shanon and I went shopping and I got some cute new clothes! (Yay clothes!!) Saw her boyfriend and his family at the mall, said hello. Then we met up with Shanon's mommy at the other mall and I got some new jeans! (Yay new jeans!)
Later on Shanon's mommy took us out to Frisches for dinner, where much more fun and sugar was had. Shanon got a call from Laura "to go to a place in Cincinnati that has a "T" & "M" in it." When I spoke with Laura, being from NKY and all, it was not a "T" & "M" place it was Dave & Busters. (As Laura and Erica call it, "Chuck E Cheese for adults). So, at 9:00-ish Shanon and I began our drive to NKY to meet them. On the way there we called about 1/2 of our phone books because we were super hyper and giggly. The only person that did want to come along and join in the fun was Erica! (Yay for wanting to have fun with us and not be party poopers like everyone else!)
I did however, by the end of the night get Shanon "naked" through all the piddidles I called!
Since we beat Laura and her crew up to NKY, as they were also coming from Louisville, we stopped at my mommy's house and said hello and chatted for a little while. We waited until Erica got there and left shortly after that as we had another 30 minute drive to Dave and Busters. To make sure we got there okay, my mom gave us her GPS thingie that we could program the address and it tell us where to go. The thing is really annoying, especially since it took Shanon about 10 minutes to get the volume down to a reasonable pitch. Chatting about people and places and boys and everything else ensued.
We get to Dave and Busters and meet up with Laura and her peoples. Said hello, chatted for a few minutes, then played Skee-ball and this nifty trivia game. We won a lot of tickets through that. We decided to only get a small prize each, to remember the night, then come back up to earn more and buy a really obnoxiously big prize. The small prizes we got were shot glasses!!
D&B closes at 2:00, so as we are walking out, we tried to get Laura's fiance to take our picture, but he wouldn't so we asked a nearby group of random guys to take the picture and they did. (They were nice. The only thing they wanted was then a picture with us on their camera...we obliged.) On the drive back much more talking about random things ensued.
We got back to my house and decided to stand out side for about 30 minutes before we got smart to go inside, where it was actually warm. We talked for a very long time. Erica didn't leave until 4:45. (Shanon and I had to be up at 8:30 so that she could get back in time for church).

Being spontaneous is FUN!!!
(now I'm tired, but it was worth it....and I would totally do it again!)

I am true to all interns everywhere.

I was sent out for food today. Subway: 5 sandwiches plus one for myself. 
Thankfully the nice people at Subway were so helpful and kind. Yay!

Go me. 



P.S. I had to re-do this post 3 times because apparently I can't spell today.

Gosh it has been over a month since I've actually written in this thing. I think it is time I update.

I'll section it off.

Work:  Work has been sucky/okay. I work with this "new" girl. (I use quotes because she has worked at the other smoothie king before- but she is new to the one I work at). She is so, what's the word, bitchy, to everyone. To people who are much older than her, to people who are smarter than her. She has this "holier than thow" attitude toward everyone. She treats me like I am 5 (in fact I am older than her) and I do not know how to do anything at all. She makes me and everyone else so mad.
But besides that, like I said, work is otay.

School: Started my senior year. Taking a bunch of classes. Don't like a few of them. But, these are classes I have to take if I want to graduate. Oh yeah, I may not graduate in time. Over the summer I was supposed to take PSYCH 320, but it was canceled. Since they offered it last year in the spring I thought they would offer it again this coming spring semester. They aren't. No one told me, so I didn't take it this semester. And, the next time they are offering it is the fall of 07, so I may not graduate until December of 07, instead of May.
Research methods is otay, so far.

Life: crimmson and I got a yellow apartment/house on Newburg literally 3 seconds away from school. I love it. It is great to have something home-y to come back to, rather than my old apartment full of tension.
Celebrated my 21st Birthday on September 19. I am now legal. Shanon and Bruce had people gather at Applebees to celebrate it with me. I had lots of fun. And, I was very surprised.
Then, later that week, my dad, stepmom and her parents came down to take me out to dinner. We went to Friday's at Fourth Street Live.
Again, mucho fun.

The first day that I was officially, officially 21, Wednesday the 20th. I became old. I was attempting to go to bed, but my back kept hurting me. (It had hurt in the afternoon too, but I thought it was just stress of work). So, thinking I was dying or at least having gall stones or kidney stones,  at 11:45pm I was admitted into Baptist East. I was there until 2:45am. The doctor that treated me told me that I was having "Renal Colic" (aka Kidney pain). I am not supposed to lift anything at all. (has that doctor seen the backpack of a hard working college student?) My back still hurts, but I only take the prescriptions he gave me at night because they both make me sleepy: Vicodin and flexeril (muscle relaxer). I have been sleeping really well since I started taking them. I <3 my boy because he took me, stayed with me and took me home from the hospital. It was very nice for him to do that.

I've been getting homesick a lot, because when I go home it is only for a few hours and I don't get to see people for very long. But hopefully, over Fall Break I will get to spend a day and a half up in good ole NKY!

That is all for now.

love you all...

List up to ten (10) things you want to say to ten (10) people. Do not state who these are people are. Do not confirm or deny and comment speculation. Tag five (5) people.

1) I miss you bunches and you are away from me now. Even though we used to fight all the time I love you lots!!!

2) I love you so much. I love the way you make me feel. I am absolutly excited that I found you.

3) We need to get lunch.

4) I live in the freaking apartment!!! Get the fuck over the fact that I want to spend some time in MY apartment (that my name is on and I pay just as much as you do) with my boyfriend!     (If only I could really say that one out loud).

5) I can't believe you can go on seing your boyfriend only twice in the summer.....I would die. But it is good that your relationship is strong enogh to whether that.

6) We need to double date. I think it'd be cute. Although you both are 21 and we are not.

7) I am sorry for all the drama that happened this past semester. I love you and know I am always here for you.

8) We need to bowl when you get back in town.

9) I really, really really, really, really wanted your position but I'm sure you will be great at it! Congratulations

10) It was really great to see you yesterday, I can't wait to hear all about your trip!

I NEED A JOB!!! [May. 19th, 2006|07:32 pm]

[Current Location |My room.]
[Current Music |none]

How I feel is mainly the chorus. ("Tonight I want to Cry" by Keith Urban)

Alone in this house again tonight
I got the TV on, the sound turned down and a bottle of wine
There's pictures of you and I on the walls around me
The way that it was and could have been surrounds me
I'll never get over you walkin' away

I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
But I'm just drunk enough to let go of my pain
To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
From my eyes
Tonight I wanna cry


Would it help if I turned a sad song on
'All By Myself' would sure hit me hard now that you're gone
Or maybe unfold some old yellow lost love letters
It's gonna hurt bad before it gets better
But I'll never get over you by hidin' this way

I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
But I'm just drunk enough to let got of my pain
To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
From my eyes
Tonight I wanna cry

I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
But I'm just drunk enough to let got of my pain
To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
From my eyes
Tonight I wanna cry

I really, really, really, really, really ( I could go on...) need a job. I am almost on broke and I can't find anyone that is hiring now. Everyone seems to need to take a few weeks. (Being sick the past week hasn't helped me too much.) But I can't afford to wait 2-3 weeks. So, if you are in the Louisville area and know of ANYONE who even might be hiring please tell them about me AND CALL ME!!!! I need a job!!!
(I've already tried: Ruby Tuesday, Wild Oats, Bed Bath and Beyond, Linnens and Things, The Disney Store, Pottery Barn Kids, Blockbuster). I'm getting desperate!


Love you all...

From crimmson:

1--Are you in love??
      Yes, I am.
2--What is your favorite movie/why?
      I don't know if I can pick just one. Everytime someone asks me that I change my answer. There are too many good ones out there.
3--Do you miss frosh. year?
     A little. Mainly I miss all the fun times that we (Amanda, Erica, Alli, you and me) all had.
4--What is your favorite food?
     Larosas Pizza.
5--What is your favorite song/why?
      Right now, Oasis' Wonderwall. But it changes (like my favorite movie)


From allybwagon:

1. Do you miss the five of us?
   Why, yes I do... I miss the fun times we had together.
2. Hows your love life? ;)
   It's great.
3. Are you staying in town over the summer?
   Yes, I live just off Breckenridge lane.
4. Are we ever going to see each other again? :(
   Yes we are.
5. Favorite movie and why.
    See above answer in Shanon's questions.


So, it's 7:00 and I've been up for about 45 minutes. I just woke up. Couldn't sleep anymore.
I went to Patient First Health Center yesterday and the doctor told me I have an upper respitory infection. Now I know why I've been squeeking while I was speaking. I'm good though. My pillow has been taking great care of me. He bought me soup yesterday. He's so sweet.

Seeing how I am sick and the doctor told me not to do much but rest for the next 5 days it means I can't go look for a job. I've applied at a few places but no callbacks....yet. Hopefully if I do, they will let me have the days that I need to get better.  If not, does anyone in Louisville know anyone hiring??

Thats about it in my life. Hope everyone is as good as I am.


Love you all....
