I'm pretty sure that I'm in the 7th level of senioritis hell. 5 projects!!! And I'm updating, which I *cough* never do, instead. Go me!

Hmmm..other than that things have been pretty much good. I think I kind of lost my train of thought. And I think it's dinnertime, too... :)

I bought a $2 coffee maker yesterday...probably from the 70's. Pretty sweet...

I'm going to go back to reading now, and pretend that what I'm reading...is European History :/

Spring break i guess has been eventful. Lots of hanging out - not so much of the work. Ahhh all the schoolwork. I've kinda barely been home, though. In fact, I haven't been home since.... Wednesday morning. Would upload the pictures but I used up my silly flickr bandwith already, on pictures of Erin rolling down the hill/children watching movies at my house.

so my shift key is stuck

so, i guess here's life these days.

1. grassroots is bad - need another job/more money. barista time?
2. car is dying, I think. ouch
3. waiting for college = driving me insane. nyu!!!
4. ap's are coming, lots of work to do, no motivation.
5. trips to california and florida are coming!! maybe i should get that flickr paid account, seeing as there will be too many photos to count.

getting away is going to be scary, but very nice. i'm just looking forward to some nicer days, and a little less stress.

it's raining out right now. that kind of nice, light damp rain that makes everything smell good.

You drink coffee when: anytime you're not sleeping

Your caffeine addiction level: high

As terrified as I am for college I'm also...really, quite ready. Just so done with high school and my entire B day schedule. It consists of an entire day of senior joke classes that make me want to kill myself.

Four day weekend has been quite refreshing and I dont know, upsetting in some ways. I went to the City on Friday, though. Went to see the RUSSIA! exhibit in the Guggenheim and an exhibit about Spirutalism and Photography of the Occult in the Met. Wow, I love There was a Van Gogh exhibit, also. It was gorgeous, stunning and absolutely depressing because I will never have any talent. H thought he couldnt draw? Please.

I don't know, I 'm really set on focusing on schoolwork for the next...bit of while. So maybe at some point I can actually have aspirations other than...be happy. That is going to go absolutely nowhere and I know that far to well to write any more of this entry.

Wow fuck good night.

So I've decided I might start existing again. I don't know to what extent that I'll be existing but who doesn't need another distraction such as livejournal, right? That's right, NO ONE.

Life's been hectic. My summer was wonderful, although it did include working. But work was kind of fun this summer. I don't know maybe I just felt grown up or something, but I became pretty friendly with everyone at work and any time that was boss free was actually rather enjoyable..at times. I did lots of puzzles this summer as well. Also did a grand tour of the Morris area diners. AND LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING...they all have shit coffee. And yet my love of NJ diners will never ever cease.

School year's been something else. Applying to college, so far, has sucked. Just plain sucked. Applications come in a nice neat package: introspection, doubt of your intelligence, laziness, and the rest of your life, some assembly required. Batteries NOT included.

So, I'm also going to make an attempt to write a novel this November. I'm going to see Bright Eyes again soon, too. In Jersey City. That = exciting.

I'm leaving for vacation to North Carolina in a few days, with my family. It should be a whole lot of fun, I hope. It could also be a painfully long week spent with my family. But I dont think I'll let it be. No, I won't.

I still have so much summer work left. School is so close. Ick.

Life's been pretty good/ok. Its summer, obviously. Um.. its really hot, though. Not so much today but today is far too humid, which is quite blegh. I've just been..hanging around the house mostly. Reading/sleeping a lot, and going to work.

Not that exciting eh? I'm planning some college trips soon. Baltimore & Chicago. Good stuff I hope.

I think I'm getting my wisdom teeth out soon :/

For some reason, just now, when I went through my entries from the beginning of this year I couldn't figure out what's changed. In so many ways, nothing's change. I have so much more freedom but I'm so much more tied down. I have the SAT in 2 weeks and I don't have any time to study. I have projects up the wazoo and I'm not working on any of them. I'm just wasting away in front of the computer playing various Windows games.

I have more money but I owe people money. I have less time and I have more to do. I want to do everything but I don't want to get out of this chair. I want next month to come, but not next week. I want to stay up all night but I want to sleep...

I don't remember what I wanted to say with this entry. But I still exist and maybe this summer I'll start updating again. If I make it that far.

Your brain: 100% interpersonal, 40% visual, 180% verbal, and 80% mathematical!
Congratulations on being 400% smart! Actually, on my test, everyone is. The above score breaks down what kind of thinking you most enjoy doing. A score above 100% means you use that kind of thinking more than average, and a score below 100% means you use it less. It says nothing about how good you are at any one, just how interested you are in each, relatively. A substantial difference in scores between two people means, conclusively, that they are different kinds of thinkers.

Matching Summary: Each of us has different tastes. Still, I offer the following advice, which I think is obvious:

  1. Don't date someone if your interpersonal percentages differ by more than 80%.
  2. Don't be friends with someone if your verbal percentages differ by more than 100%.
  3. Don't have sex with someone if their math percentage is over 200%.

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

free online dating free online dating
You scored higher than 82% on interpersonal

free online dating free online dating
You scored higher than 52% on visual

free online dating free online dating
You scored higher than 97% on verbal

free online dating free online dating
You scored higher than 68% on mathematical

INFP - the Healer
You scored 9% I to E, 15% N to S, 33% F to T, and 78% J to P!
You are more introverted than extroverted. You are more intuitive than observant, you are more feeling based than thinking based, and you prefer to go with the flow rather than having a plan. Your type can best be summarized by the word "Healer", which belongs to the larger group of idealists. You have a capacity for caring that is deeper than most. You strive for unity, are fascinated by the battles between good and evil, and can be something of an idealist. Only 1% of the population shares your type.
As a romantic partner, you are usually supprtive and nuturing, however, you have a high need for individuality. Harmony is extremely important to you as you are very affected by conflict and tension, which also makes you resist confronting your partner directly about problems. When you get angry, you usually blame yourself, rather than your partner. You can also be stubborn and unyielding when you feel you are being criticized or mistreated. You feel the most appreciated when your partner listens to you carefully. You need to be understood. You need to hear your partner express their feelings, the more often, the better. Your group summary: idealists (NF)
Your type summary: INFP

I have crazy anxiety at the moment for absolutely no reason. Well not really anxiety, I guess just the jitters. W/e.

Today was a farily good day actually. Classes weren't terrible - French was annoying, though. Teacher's starting to seriously, seriously get on my nerves. Even if I don't really care for America most of the time... I'm so sick of hearing about why France is better. She's pretty full of shit sometimes. Hey, what can you do, right? Nothing.

New Physics teacher is great. I'm actually learning stuff now. And I get it and everything. Woah, crazy.

Scheduling for next year is kind of depressing. It's like judgement day is coming, or something. I feel like I have to own up to all the slacking off I've done by killing myself next year with advanced classes. And all of a sudden I'm all ambitious and crap. Yet, I don't even know what I want to do with my education. I guess I just want to keep my options open. Yeah, that's it.

I'm going to take a creative writing class outside school, I think. I'd like to maybe do an independent study for film next year. Going to NYU for film seems like the most appealing option right now. I have lots of interests, but every time I think about what I wanna do... I dunno I just get depressed with the whole idea.

Blagh. I learned where the term ralphing comes from today. But I don't feel like talking about it. Haha. That was useless. If anyone cares comment, heh.

You people need to recommend me some damn music! I've only used 1 of 40 gigs on my ipod and i have at least 2/3 of my music on it!

Just curious... has anyone given up on their resolutions yet? Hehe.

[ mood | complacent ]

So today was the first day back to school after my wonderous week off. Well, it actually wasn't all that wonderous but it wasn't school so therefore, it was pretty good. The day dragged on forever, as expected. I'm thinking about actually getting some of my homework done ahead of time. Hah. We'll see how that goes.

I keep thinking of things I could be going to do right now, but instead I'm still typing. I'm pretty tired, too. So sleep would be nice.

I've been reading The Dharma Bums for the past few weeks. Its been taking awhile to finish, but I think I'll do it tonight. So far, I've really liked it. Not much really happens, but I don't mind that. There's a lot of ideas floating around through it. About Buddhism and materialism and such things. I guess you could say its about experiences. Heh.

That's not a very good description. Its a nice read, though.

And the first Coldplay CD is amazing. I re-discovered it yesterday. Shiver is a beautiful song.

I gotta go watch A Walk In The Sun, now. For Art of Film.

In the year 2005 I resolve to:

Eat the worm.

Get your resolution here

So, I got an iPod for Christmas. So, anyone got any good mp3s they wanna send me? So, if you do email them or send me them on AIM (ripoffsociety).

My break's almost over. I have 2 days left till I have to go back to school. I really don't want to go back. Its been fun. Spent most of it at Alex's and Sarah's hanging out. Some of it here, hanging out. I slept till at least 11 every day. Amazing. Last night Jen & Julie came over for New Years. That's the first time I didn't spend New Years with just my family. We watched Mars Attacks! and Napoleon Dyanmite. Good stuff.

Can't wait till February break.

I still have a paper to write.

I'm going to see Ocean's 12 today. I hope it's good.
