1) “Wreck of the Day” - Anna Nalick I listened to this entire album on repeat when my grandma died back in 2005. I was so ridiculously close to her, being called the “favorite grandchild”. I used to visit her every Sunday and make her dinner with Anne. I was the only person to sleep in her bed after her husband, my grandpa, passed away in 1983. I just remember when she all of a sudden had so many strokes and was not conscious, that was when I cried, because I knew she was going to die and we were all just waiting for the inevitable. Fortunately we only waited two weeks, and when it happened I was okay with it. That two week waiting period was helpful to digest it all. I also had to be strong around my dad, who was just a complete mess. I’ve never seen such a depressed man! So this song doesn’t necessarily make me cry, but it does get my down because all I can think about is that event.
2) “Irvine” - Kelly Clarkson Alright haters, shut it. Listen to this song and you might just like it. If I seriously get into this song, I get extremely sad. She wrote it as a prayer to God, wondering where God was when she was at her lowest. I don’t know about ya’ll, but I actually do believe in some form of God and sometimes I feel like just having a conversation and asking, “where are you????? I need you! I am weak!” yep. Give it a chance people, she is a good artist!!!!!
Didn’t do shit for that group project so therefore I will get graded down for it. We had to do a reflection on each person’s participation in the group and I was just like, Fuck it, I’ll be honest, ‘cause I literally didn’t do anything. So go me for telling the truth, but fuck the truth for biting me in the ass. Fortunately it’s only worth 6 points, but I will probably have to talk to my TA. Sigh.
Took a nap at the UCen instead of going to Archaeology lecture.
Portola had a really good lunch today
My roommate closed the drapes and windows to watch her friggin Angel in the dark, when I had opened up the drapes to let in light and get fresh air. URGHHHHHHH.
one week from tonight marks the start of my journey to Michigan!
I’ve only ever read one fanfic lol and that was in the 7th grade. It was an OTH fanfic LOL go figure. Basically it involved Naley right after they kissed for the first time? something like that. I remember absolutely loving it and waiting for new entries! lol. The chic even made Peyton and Lucas stay together! Ahem..the way it was supposed to be!!!! Anywho, i guess that would be my fav.
Chem lab. That’s what I worked on all day. Even got up early to do it. :(
I have this archaeology group project thing, so I went to go work on that this morning at 10. Our original plan was to go to the library, but as soon as I got there, those bitches were like “we are meeting at my house on Abrego blah blah” So basically I had to backtrack on my bike. so. effing. annoying. Then I got to the house and the chics place was so messy (and I know messy) and it smelt like piss. We basically had no idea what to do…I had class at 11. OH then the girl’s housemate came in and was like “oh you cleaned???” and literally was like ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?! lol. nast.
Actual Chem lab required us to do some parts over because we were given a nonfunctioning voltmeter. go figure. and I broke a test tube. mah bad. stupid holder. but my partner grabbed it and quickly threw it away and was like “SHHHHH he will never know!” lol she’s cool :)
I have to go back to that stank house to work on this retarded project. wonderful.
A non-fictional book. Uhhhh I’m not sure this would be considered non-fictional lol! but honestly I am not a huge fan of them. I like stories :)
Anywho, this book, Living Buddha, Living Christ by the monk Thich Nhat Hanh is one of the most amazing books I have ever read in my life. It compares Buddha with Christ and how the author lives his life by using both of them as examples. This book was so uplifting and I read it in 2 days! I probably could have read it in one, but you know…a girl’s gotta sleep and go to class. This was a required book for my Jesus class here in college haha and I am so glad my professor made us read this one. I highly recommend it to everyone, especially if you want some uplifting. I seek to have both figures in my life, but just like the book says, it takes time and will not happen over night. So I am still on my little religious journey :)
SO my life has been hectic these last few days. Starting Thursday night I had to write a paper for Archaeology…DUMBEST SHIT OF MY LIFE!!! I had to write 4 pages on how I would organize an excavation project. I didn’t finish until 3PM the next day. Anyways, after that I just felt so relieved so I called up Cristina to see if she would get something to eat with me since I hadn’t eaten anything. We went to eat at Sushiya - nom nom nom - and we just caught up, then we ran into April! So she hung out with us and we basically talked about Mercy and how much all 3 of us miss it! I really do miss high school, and I know a lot of people in my class didn’t, but it was pretty much the best years I’ve had. That felt really nice to just reminisce :) Friday night we had a full group: Jamitsa, her sister Mayte, her cousin Mayra, Dana, Greg, Malia, Maggie, this guy David, and we all went out to IV…but the night could have totally been better. Not like our previous adventures. Next day, we went to State Street, shopped, came back, went to Laughology, which btw, had the best headliner we’ve seen thus far. IT WAS SO FUNNY! After that we got Chinos, and the 2 youngin’s got Freebirds nachos AGAIN! (But I don’t blame them, they are the bombbbbbb) OH and on this day we went on chatroullete and dana met this kid from carlsbad who was 17 and had his mom go on chatroullete lol! Then the four of us went on it later to find so many goddamn penises and guys from France who wouldn’t talk lol. grrrreat. Today, we went to Woodstock’s, had a really nice walk along the beach, and went around our future dorm, Manzanita. I CANNOT wait to live there next year! We then went to eat at Hollister Brewing Co. for Amber’s birthday. whew.
A photo I have taken recently. Seriously, I took this like 5 hours ago lol. Me&Jamitssss (future roomie!)
