So I haven't written in this thing forever, but I was just reading Lou's and figured I would. 
I am suppose to be working on my thesis at the moment, but will find anything else to distract me. This extremely scary piece of writing (50 pages) is due in 4 weeks... we were only given 6 weeks to do it. I have written 2 pages...

On a happier note, I am going to Ireland for spring break... I leave March 10th... I have to finish  my thesis before I go :( 
But! I'm going to see my nanny, then going to Limerick to stay with my roommate's boyfriend and friends (other boys mmm...), and then heading to Dublin for St. Patty's weekend. The whole thing should be quite a shit show, I'm excited. 

Sad new, my dog Molly died. We had to put her down because her spleen burst. Its so strange to think that shes not around, and I cry every time I think about her :(

Happier... I am graduating in May, then taking a year off. I have applied to 2 grad schools and am waiting to hear back. If I get in, the plan is to start my masters Fall '08, until then I think I might live in Ireland. It depends on my roommate who is trying to get a student visa, to go over. Apparently, in order to get a working visa, the EU has to be able to provide proof that there is no one better than Allie to do the job. I, on the other hand have my Irish passport, so I can go and work. If things go well, I may stay out there for a year. The plan is to go over in August. Laura, weekend trips are a must!

Anyway... that is all pretty much.

I cannot believe it is time to go back to school already...

This summer has been pretty great. My internship was a lot fun, I met a lot of great people and have been offered a job for the school year or to come back next summer!

I got into the Semester at Sea program; I was stressing about this for the longest time, and now I have decided it is not for me. Instead, I am applying to study in Florence, Italy. This way I will be near old friends (Yey Lou!) and also I will have my roomie in Ireland. I will be able to travel around on the weekends, apparently flight to near by countries are dirt cheap, and I will overall be immersed into a culture where I don't speak the language. This in itself will be a challenge. The thing that really changed my mind about doing the Sem. at Sea thing was the short time I spent in Sweden a few weeks ago. Even though I was only there for 4 days, I met some amazing people and had such a great time. I miss the European culture, and feel like that is where I really belong.

Anyhoot, I'm so excited to get back to school and see all my roommates and my sisters! At the same time, I am sad to be leaving my number one girls (shout outs to Taryn and Stef), but they will def be come visiting me this year, come hell of high water! You hear me bitches!!!

Well I am trying to kill time, this is why I wrote an entry, I probably won't be writing anything for another year or so... so ta ta!

I haven't updated in yonkers but i have been a busy little bee. This week was rush with for the sorority, and I just found out yesterday that I got a bid for Phi Sigma Sigma! I'm so excited, thats the one I wanted to be in. I think it will open me up to so many different and new things on campus, can't wait.
Today is bid day at 1:15, but mummy is coming up at 12 with John and his girlfriend. I was surprised, this is the first time ever that I heard my uncle John has a girlfriend, and apparently they have been going out since before Christmas.
Friday night I went to see Hitch, it was a really cute movie, very funny too. Then last night I didn't really do much, I studied actually, that was only cause I knew today would be so busy.
hmmm... not to much else to report.
Spring break is just around the corner, but i have no plans as of yet. I really want to go somewhere warm. Oh well if not, it will just be nice to spend the week at home, and I can go visit the Southern girls too...
Alright well I am going to leave it at that as I have to get ready for the gym and then get back here in time to meet my mum

Bored as hell [17 Jan 2005|06:53pm]
[ mood | claustrophobic ]

The walls of my house are closing in on me. I have been stuck in my house for a week now. Since I got home from England last weekend I was trapped in my house for a couple of days because of the snow, and everyday after that I have left to go the gym and the mall with my mum, other than that my time has been spent in front of the tv and my head is about to expload. I hate wasting time and being unproductive, its ok every once in a while, but a week is just annoying.
Ireland and England were a lot of fun, althoughe eveyone got sick. New Years was great we went to a saw Doctors concert and I was told I have a lovely bottom lip and strange eyes... not something you hear everyday. For some reason the blokes in Ireland were drawn to my blond curly hair, was strange. I got off with a guy named Alan a couple of times, a piece of advice: when a guy tells you he hasn't gotten into a fight, that it is in fact pimples on his face, just believe him and stop calling him a liar... poor guy. He was nice though and called us taxis even though lou ended up puking in one the first night haha, I didn't make it any better making her dance cause I thought she was upset, sorry!
Bernard's wedding was really nice, the reception was a lot of fun too, lots of dancing, which was fun with the exception of Jerry... bleh.
Overall it was a great holiday except for it being sooooo expensive, arg a single vodka and red bull for 5 pound 30 was rediculous! I will never drop that, I almost had a heart attack in the middle of the club.
It is sad being home, its hard when you're around people for 3 weeks straight and then theres no one but the dog cat and tv. I am going back to school on Saturday though so thats good. I am not happy at all about my scedule though, seven classes, I hope I will survive. This semester I am also going to pledge for Phi sigma sigma, Ben's girlfriend Chelsea is in it and she really sold it to me, and I think it will help a lot with meeting a lot of new people, which I definitly need to do.
Not mcuch else is going on, hopefully I can get out of this house tonight. When I go to get together with friends though it always turns out with "well what can we do?" Miserable Newtown...
Well thats about it.

[ mood | lethargic ]

One more day until I return to Quinnipiac. I'm so excited, but at the same time am a little sad that the summer is coming to an end, it has definitly been an interesting one. I met a lot of new people, some that I alread knew but got to know better, and others who were complete strangers to begin with. I wish I had had a little more time to spend outside and enjoy the sun, but it was, at the same time, an important opportunity to see what it is like to work a 9-5 desk job.

Packing is coming a long slowly but surely. I have most of my clothes packed up, I just need to go around and find all the small, take up space, type of stuff. And I still need to go out and buy all my hair and bathroom stuff... that usually comes out to be more expensive than expected, so I will be sure to take mummy along on that trip with me.

In other news, well there really isn't any. I am just spending my last week trying to get out in the sun. However that was put to hault today since we have Marcus, our gardener, here painting the house. He lost his job with the gardening business that he worked for, so my parents out of good will, have been giving him any jobs around the house they can and at the same time introducing him to everyone and their mum. Anyway after going off on a much ADD like episode, the reason I am not outside by the pool, is because I like to be alone, not have some man wandering around the garden.
Also my plan for this week was to make it to the gym everyday, however that has not happened because I have somehow fucked up my toe from running, as well as that, I woke up with a sore throat and cough after getting soaked at the Bridgewater fair on Friday night. The olyptical in my basement has become my substitute.

Well I think that is about it... As I have implied my life at the moment is not too interesting, but i'm sure as sure as I return to QU the excitement will pick up.

[ mood | Hungover ]

So mummy's party was a success. Was pleasently wasted by 9:00, In time to start singing along with the band to many of the irish songs I grew up listening to. Mum renamed me as the "drunken slut" thanks mum! And I was almost carried up to the pool by Ben, Steve and Mike, however their attempt to throw me in the pool was stopped by Mum because she was nervous of my plumitting to my death.
I spent a little while shooting the shit with Jason and Christy and Kim Smiths boys. All very close friends of the family whom shouldn't have seen me drunk as I ranted on about the ginormous amount of nuts we had.
Much of our time was spent perving over the ancient band member, who had a sexy hump on his back. Stef wanted to get a piece of that ass, but Ben's girlfriend Chelsea claimed him first.
Lindsey wasn't able to make it due to the terrible conditions outside, drizzle as been known to kill. Sorry you couldn't come back linds:( Amanda and Stef left a little later which was too bad, but amanda had to work early this morning and Stef wasn't feeling too hot.
Later on Steve and I played a few rounds of our trust game, which i should probably monitor when I am drinking, since I let him put a knife about a centimeter away from my eyeball without flinching.
Well after the night there is still a lot of booze left over, and quite a bit of cake, which I have been attacking and feel like I need to puke. The keg of guiness was pretty destroyed but there are still a couple of drops left if anyone wants.
Back to work again tomorrow, atleast it is my last week. And I have less than two weeks before I go back to school which I am so excited about. Speaking of which it might be a good idea to go school shopping. My money is being carefully monitored at the moment though because of my vacation to Florida, which did not really turn out to be what I expected.
Although it was fun, the promise of going out a lot was not fulfilled. Most of my money went towards Universal Studios, which I had done before and didn't really need to do again. Also Arabian nights dinner show could have been avoided, I don't know how I was the only one who found the acting to be extremly unbearable. The company with whom I stayed, other than Allie, became a little unbearable by the end of the week. So there were definitly some plus and minuses to the week.
Well I think that is about it, haven't written in this thing forever, so I thought i would give a nice little update.

so not much has been going on lately besides work, and being diagnosed with a disease. Mono! woo... I think I have had it since the winter though, so i think i am towards the end of it. I do not seem to have many of the symptoms besides headache and feeling a little tired now and then.
Other than that work is the same, boring and extremely repetetive, today is Friday! Don't have anything planned for the weekend, it has been quite dull recently. I think I might want to go check out club Eleven in danbury, but i want to be able to drink too... I really need to find myself an id. If there is anyone who has a 21 or over id of a gilr who might kind of look like me, that they are willing to sell I am all for it! Please! ALright well im going to get back to work.

Im home for the summer... I can't decide if I'm happy or sad about it, i miss all my friends at school, but its nice to have a change. I went to Yorktown to Billy's house with Allie this weekend, that was a lot of fun, we went into the city on friday night and i decided to drink in the car... its hard to keep track of how much you are drinking, when you drink out of the bottle. So by the time we got to the comedy club, I was sort of falling over myself. It was fun though. Then yesterday I went to Target with Taryn and then met up with Lindsey and Marc at the diner, and we bumbed into Liz krohn and Erin Delory, that was nice.
Today is mother's day, Just got back from dinner, im stuffed...
I just recieved my final grades for second semester, not too bad except for math, which i am sooo pissed aobut, but atleast i am done with it now... I recieved an 2 A-, B+, B, and a fucking C-! So that brought my years GPA down from a 3.5 to a 3.168... gr.... I will just have to work my ass off next year and bring it up.
A week on wednesday I'm off to South Africa, im so excited... I was to ride an ostrage!!!! Shall be interesting. Mum said we have to get mase and hide on money all over our bodies, a little scary.
Alright well thats about it, thought I would update since i'm sitting here watching Harry Potter and I really have nothing much else to do...

Its finals week ehhh... but i'm almost done, and I got my two worst finals out to the way today. Spanish and Math. Spanish was the most rediculous test I have ever taken, there was really no point in studying, those 4 hours were worthless. The whole entire thing was completely contrary to what I was given to study. Math was hard aswell... but im hoping I did okay on that one... we will see. I have sociology in the morning at 8 (I should be sleeping now), and then Psychology at 5 in the evening, i heard that one isnt going to be bad though. Then I just have to write a paper and then im out of here.
I'm happy to be going home, its about time... I need that change of scenery, but I know I will miss a lot of people here! I'm excited about my trip to South Africa and the "people" who are going to be on that trip, wink wink, we will see what happens with that...
Okay well im going to hit the sack... wish me luck on the rest of my tests!

another update :0 [01 Apr 2004|02:40pm]
[ mood | blank ]

The weather sucks! It has been pissing rain since yesterday morning, and is suppose to continue through the weekend. Nothing new has really happened since I last posted. I am so ready for summer to come though, work just keeps piling on. I had a two day math test on Tuesday and Wednesday, and although I studied quite a bit, I don't think I did quite as well as I would have like.
Next weekend I am going to Alison's for Easter weekend, it should be fun, just for a change of scenery. Although I have a lot of fun here on the weekends, I am kind of getting sick of the constant drinking and hanging around campus. What I wouldn't do just to be able to go out and have a drink with friends at a local pub, damn the 21 drinking age!
I think I am going to try and go home for Sat. or Mum said she will take me bathing suite shopping sometime soon, so maybe that will be this weekend. The only problem with that is I have to be very careful and she doesn't see anything...
On a different note, I have been feeling creative frustration lately, I want the weather to be nice so I can go drive around and find places where I can take pictures and draw... I think since I haven't been doing anything with art since senior year, I am just craving it.
I was just talking to Taryn, and apparently her roomate and her are planning on going to Fairfield Hills and "Little People Village", both places that have been named "haunted." They are going to try and get inside Fairdield Hills and look around, so I have decided to tag along, should be interesting, but I'm excited. I will probably soil myself haha...
okay well I'll leave it at that.

Hmm... It has been quite eventful around here lately, epecially last weekend. Took a little trip to the tattoo parlor with 6 of my girls, that was interesting. And then younger men came into the play later on that weekend, and I have two rewards on my neck to show (Wasn't very happy about that one... or two).
Also last weekend Ben had Mike and Stevie come to stay for Friday night, so after I had become comfortably trashed, Allie and I went down to my brothers apartment. This visit included me punching Mike twice in the face (He told me to), and its now on camera, and ending with me crying in the hallway because my brother and his friends were leaving and kicking us out. This of course would not have been a big deal if I had not previously taken shots of Barcardi O...
I have been swamped with work lately, I think my teachers are piling it on now because we only have 5 weeks of school left.
Tonight I have to spend the night doing work that will be due Monday because we have some events planned for the weekend. Tomorrow night, Billy, who Allison has just recently started seeing, is coming and is bringing with him 4 of his other friends. Apparently he wants to set me up with one of them, he rides a motorcycle... Don't quite know if he sounds like my type, but then again I don't really think I have that much of a type. As long as he doesn't have a tattoo that reads "I love Mom" on his arm. Taryn also might be coming on Friday, she hasn't gotten back to me about that though 'cough cough' 'nudge nudge' 'hint hint' (AKA Taryn if you are reading this: get your ass to QU on Friday!)... So it seems that my room is going to be packed on Friday night, I dont know where everyone is going to go, but we will figure it out I'm sure.
On Sunday a bunch of us are taking a field trip to Boston for the day! It should be fun, we don't really know what we are doing yet, but just a change of scenery will be nice for once.
Okay well I think that is about all for now...

Two hours of drunken sleep... [13 Mar 2004|06:40pm]
[ mood | exhausted ]

Just got back from England today. Twaz anextremly long day, but it followed an amazingly fun week. I forget how much fun I have with Laura. I love how we can just have such a great time together.
Our week was filled with much going out and much alcohol... many things... Laura is a clepto, I am a moob grabber. Bleh! What skinny man has bitch titties?
I want to go back! No more school... I love being away from here, whenever I come back things always seem so dull and so overplayed. Everyone has been changing lately, and its all because they want to impress others, and be someone they are not. I hate when people can't be themselves.
Am majorly pissed at the moment, because my digital camera is not working... But am less than patiently awaiting my disposible camera pictures to arrive. Daddy has just run down to CVS to pick them up. However I think that most of them will not be visable, because I remember on more than one account annoucing that I had to retake the picture because the flash didn't go off. Plus the random pictures that Krish took of my bum extremely upclose will probably not be clear.
Well I think I am going to go in the hottub with my mummy now, for she has been waiting for me for quite a while.
I really can not wait for my next trip. They seem to get better and better. And Taryn don't worry, we will be going on another journey soon enough! Start saving your pennies, cause this next one is going to be crazy.

Twas an eventful few past weeks... Friendships almost ended and still on the verge of ending. This whole transistion from high school to college is exceptionally hard and painful. People change so quickly when they meet other people and feel the need to live up to other people's standards...
Friday night was prom, it was a lot of fun but then kind of turned. Prom itself went by extremely fast, I spent most of the night running around with Stef trying to dance near Andrew, and dancing with our date which turned out to be the big pole... After prom we went back to Jack's house, where he was having a party, was quite strange to begin with because most of the people there I wasnt friends with and they were sitting watching tv, so we decided to start drunking. The New Milford guys showed up and I could tell they felt out of place... After a few people left and my level of intoxication had increased I started to have a lot of fun. Taryn and I were running wild... and I found that I couldn't speak with out my english accent, which was really strange... Then later I started crying for some reason, I think it was cause everyone had someone and I didn't but it was also the alcohol... Plus stef deciding that she didnt want anything to do with me, which I didnt know and still dont know what that is about. THen yesterday, which was sat. I slept from 11-7 it was crazy, then had another sucky night because it really bites when you call all your friends homes and find out that they all ditched you to go out together... lots of fun. So i spent the night with my parents which actually turned out to be a lot of fun, as they sized up each one of my friends and were right on the dot! Plus they told me many a stories of Jerry and his many antics, which were as always a good time.
Today I had to work which happened to go by very fast so that was good... And when I got home my mum told me that she had heard from Ben and Mike who are currently on the highlands of Scotland, and apparently they found a sheep that was having trouble delivering and Ben delivered the lamb! I thought that was awesome! I want to go on an adventure like that!!! anymore with me?

Im in a funk... I need to get out of Newtown sometime quickly. I just feel like my life is absolutley meaningless right now. Last night I was talking to my mum and Dad, and they just seem to have had so many more adventures and stories from when they were my age and before, I feel like my life is such crap. I suppose next year I will have more fun, but I have so many doubts about it, im just going to go to college with an open mind. I am really thinking about moving back to England, maybe transfering after freshman year, it just seems that there is something there that almost completes me or somthing. I know it sounds really stupid, but when i am in England or Ireland I feel like I really belong, something just isnt right here, I dont seem to fit in or something... I dont know.
To change the subject... I am still looking for a prom date, and that is another thing that gets me down, boys... None are interested in me, im so unattractive. Lindsey met someone this weekend, and even though i know i am jealous, I am trying to be as happy for her as possible.
Not much else is going on, Im extrememly excited about going to Bermuda, Im going to go and not be uptight or anything, I just want to have fun! And hopefully thats what will happen, actually NO Im going to make that happen!... I just hope to go my kidneys dont play up... "knock on wood"
Today I talked to Lou on the phone, I hadnt talked to her for a while, so that was really nice, there is just something about us talking, we just know eachother so well, its great.
Anyway i think that is about it...

ouch... I'm burnt, went tanning three days apart and I didn't use any sun lotion. Whoops!
Nothing much has been going on lately... same old. I have been trying to go the gym a lot so I won't be the "fat girl" at college ha!
I need something new to do lately. Every weekend we do the same old thing, I wish I could have a place like the K-house that Lou has... bah
I am so excited for my trip to Bermuda with Taryn and her family... it shall be oh so much fun.
I am sooo ready to get out of highschool now. I have a serious case of senioritis and I really don't want to do work anymore, but I am pushing myself, because if I keep a 85 or higher in a class, then I don't have to take the final... which is very nice!
Today I had a very busy day:
First I got to sleep in, which was nice, then i went to school. After school I went straight to the tanning salon, after that I went to pick up my new classes (which are pretty fucky, they have curved rimes and looks like they are from the 50s.) Then I went to the gym, then i came home and went straight out to chorale rehearsal... with the annoying woman who sings really loud with a shusss type sound, kind of lispy but kind of not, and she thinks she is really good, I just want to take her foot and shove it down her throut.. hehe funny vision...) And now I am home... yey... and bored like usual... two thumbs down...
Anyway thats 'bout it...
