Down to the wire.

Only two more weeks of school left. I feel like I have so much to do, but then when I look at my To Do list it seems totally manageable. My brain is so tired. I can't make any more decisions. I just want these two weeks to be over. I want to move. I want to have my own space. And I want to spend a month RELAXING. But I will definitely get bored after about a week I'm sure.

I would like to buy a lot of books. And I would like to read them. If anyone has suggestions (do NOT say Twilight), I would love to hear them.

I hope once this semester is over I can spend more time with Cody. I'm really tired of missing him.

I decided to go out on Friday for Alex's coming home party since I haven't been to a party in quite some time. It ended up being just what I needed. I got to see Madison and Sandy and Mike and all the kids. I even got to see Josh for a minute. And I made a new friend. So all in all, it was pretty worthwhile. It was nice to just put all of my everything aside for a few hours and just breathe easy.

When I came home last night, I discovered a large pet crate in my living room with small squeaks emanating from it. Upon closer inspection, I discovered two kittens sitting in front of the kennel door. Jonah decided to get two kittens without telling me. I was shocked at first, but now I've gotten used to it. I was more worried about my cat getting sick than anything. So hopefully everything will be okay. Once I move out she's going straight to the vet for a check up. I'm a totally over protective mom.

Now it's back to futzing with indesign, trying to finish my Dance Band character outline and then sweet sleep, until I get up in the morning to do chores and more homework.

I'm leaving class at 3:50. I'm picking up The Fish (who, for those of you oblivious to my old lady-ness, is my kitten), picking up my brother, and getting the fuck out of town for a few days. PSYCHED.

My baking/cooking regiment for tomorrow includes:
1. Marble pumpkin cheesecake
2. Nut goodie candy
3. Candy bar cookies
4. Spritz cookies
5. Gingerbread cookies
6. Salmon and Wild Rice chowder


I am so excited. I get to see my fam, hang out with kitten, see the Tula pup and the Riley cat, and bake and cook and YESSSS. So excited.

Just high five me today if you see me. You will get a fucking SWEET high five.

It's almost time.

I found my FAVORITE pair of jeans on ebay! I'm so excited. I had a pair that I wore for like a year and a half almost every day and one day they just gave out and ripped in like 4 different places. I was so heartbroken. I still have them sitting in the bottom of my drawer. But randomly on Tuesday night, thanks to Val, I decided to look them up and see if I could find a cheaper pair. They normally retail about $185, but I found a few pairs for about $100 on random sites. I usually don't have much luck on ebay, but I decided to look there anyways and lo and behold, a pair of jeans in my size for only $50!!!!!! I was so psyched I bought them immediately. I can't wait for them to get here. I'm going to wear them for like a week straight.

It's almost time to go home. 4 more days and I get to see my whole family, hang out with my brother, bake, bring my kittens with me, and eat lots of yums. I wish that Cody could come with me, but I'm glad he gets to see his family too. We both need a break.

Tonight is exciting. I'm just so glad that this weekend has arrived. I get paid today, I'm gonna go to Whole Foods and get lunches and I'm going to buy new mittens for myself since I have none mittens.

And the Chai Latte cupcakes I made were a hit. I want a kitchen aid mixer SO BADLY. Someone should buy me one for christmas. And a canon camera battery charger so I can start taking pictures of my baked goods for the blog.

Also I was reading this on Jezebel this morning. I didn't laugh until the very last paragraph. Does that make me a bad person? Fuck it. It's a goddamn good joke.

Only one more week to go until Thanksgiving break. I cannot fucking wait for Thanksgiving this year. I've never been more excited to go home in my life. I just need a legitimate break from the city. Things have been so high stress lately, I'm just getting really exhausted.

The dinner party last night was a lot of fun. I love making good food with my friends and drinking wine and laughing. It was a perfect evening.

Friday I'm getting tattooed. I can't wait.

I don't even know what to write right now. I'm just glad I said everything that I needed to say. I feel like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders and I've been much happier today.

I just want to hang out with my mom.

I Have a Lot of Homework To Do...

Last night was a strange mixture of awesome and awkward. I think I'm just the most gregariously awkward human on the planet. I felt very out of place and very right where I needed to be at several different points in the night. I found it strange that in one moment I could feel so like I belonged, and in the next feel completely uncomfortable in my own skin. I think I learned a lot about myself last night. I like learning.

But I have so much homework to do, and I haven't done a shred of it yet. I like ideas more than work I think. Well, obviously.

This is pretty cool:

-ibride is making some of my favorite design lately. I had never heard of them until we got their stuff in at Robotlove but hot dang, it's effing amazing. I so want some of their work tattooed on me. So beautiful.

I am disappointed in things a lot lately.

Sometimes Fridays are Cool....

Thanks to Greg over at Perfect Porridge, Jake and I get to go see The Faint tonight and review them! So excited. I've never seen The Faint live and I've wanted to since like 8th grade. I hope they play a lot of old stuff. Cripes that makes me feel like an old lady... but hey I get to buy drinks at the bar like an adult! Ha.

Last night was pretty excellent. Bowling of course. I actually got 100! I was so excited. Yeah, I'm really that bad at bowling.

Also I fixed my schedule. I'm going to take Ethics and Aesthetics on Thursday mornings now, which I guess is okay because then I'll be done with class by noon. But eff. I was really looking forward to Advertising Account Management. What a nerd, right?

I've been having a lot of thoughts lately that I don't normally have. I wonder how much I will change in the coming year.

Also this was really funny to me.

Welcome to the End of My Week.

All I have to do is suffer through another hour and a half of Biological Systems, aka the worst class I've ever had to endure, hang out in Digital Marketing for a few hours and then I am HOME FREE. BOOM.

I finally am getting some of my deposit back from my last evil landlord (you know, the one that showed up unannounced at all hours to show our apartment when it was a mess, i was naked and cody was in my bed.). He made up a bunch of lies about how we weren't out until 2am on September 2nd (so not true) and how the apartment was a mess (slightly true, but it was MUCH cleaner than when Bill and I moved in), but in the end my charming wit and cunning won him over. We only get half our deposit back, but it's better than nothing. So fuck that guy. I hope I never see his chubby ridiculousness again.

Also everything is just about finalized for my move out next month. High fives. So stoked to live alone FINALLY. I think I'm just goddamn impossible to live with. Except Bill was the best. I wish I lived with him again.

My Thursday night class for next semester got effing cancelled. Which means I have to rearrange my next semesters schedule again. DO NOT LIKE.

All I want to eat right now is stir fry. Just a but load of stir fry. So many vegetables. Yummmmmmmmmm.

I feel as though bowling is in order tonight. But when is it not?

Alright fine. I get it. I'm only going to be unhappy if I let myself be unhappy. Well you know what? Fuck it. I don't want to be unhappy so I'm not going to be goddammit! And yeah. So what if you don't like him? So what if things aren't the best right now? So what if things aren't exactly what I want them to be right now. It gets better, right? Like, things have to fucking suck before they can get better because if they were good all the time there would be no room for improvement, right?

I'm a fucking crusader for my own piece of mind today. AND I WANT A GODDAMN KITCHENAID MIXER.

Here's something that makes it a little better. Next semesters schedule.

Monday: Class 9:30 - noon
Work 12-5 OR 5-10

Tuesday: Work 10:45 - 2
Independent study, which is event planning and coordinating for an exhibition at MCAD. Yeah. It's a real job.

Wednesday: Class 9:30 to Noon
Class 6:30 to 9.
Look at that huge gap in between! Ridiculous.

Thursday: Work 12-5
Class 6:30 - 9

Friday: Class 1-6

Saturday: Work 10:45-? (Either 2 or Close.)

Sunday: OFF

So that's that. We'll see how sane I stay.
And I'm moving soon.
So I'll get to be all by myself. And that feels sooooo good.

I feel really sick of trying.
I'm tired of feeling ignored.
I am defeated.
What more do you want from me?
There's only so much a person can take...

Happy Jamie.

It feels like Christmas

I want to give everyone a fucking hug today.

Holy dixx.

I cannot believe it. The first Presidential election I get to vote in. This is an important milestone in American history. I'm just so infinitely psyched today. Nothing can be bad. Even if I get hit by a car, I will get wheeled into the hospital with an ear to ear grin on my face. Fuck it!

America, you don't suck as bad as I thought you did. Way to be.

Democratic Erections

Every election day, I miss Harrison Cross.
"We aw awr preased by yo democrashi and democratic erections."


Anyways. I voted like a week ago. Everywhere is giving out free shit if you voted. I made cupcakes. I am giving out free shit if you voted. I'm probably going bowling tonight. Life is good.

High fives all around today.

So last night was halloween. I dressed up to go to work. No one came in between 5 and 7. I ate a bunch of candy. Then I went home and watched the 100 scariest movie moments on Bravo. I went to Cody's at 11. I was in bed by 2am.

I haven't had a legitimately amazing halloween in like 3 years. Since I moved to the cities. Hanging out with Cody was awesome of course, but I think he was feeling a little bummed out too about not going out and celebrating.

Thursday I went to a party and then played Rock Band and got silly all night, which was good. And tonight is Sandy's post-halloween party. I'll wear the same costume, different make-up probably. Maybe different shoes too. Haha god I'm so cool.

So recap. Halloween was sort of a bust this year. BUT. At least I didn't end up crying and drunk for 24 hours straight like last year. Yeah. Yikes.
