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.

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.
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.
