It's Jordan!

I feel like I should update @ 11:39 pm


 So I am. 

I don't really know what to write though. 
I suppose I could post random pictures...
So I'll post this picture, from Meghan/Laura's birthday party...Collapse )
They got a hold of my camera, if that helps explain any.
The end.

 Stephen and I hung out all last weekend... which included a trip to Barnes and Nobles, during which I took a couple of pictures of interesting..ness. 

Ok, so at first glance, does this not look like the guy on the end has those legs? I found it amusing..

Then there's this:

Apparently it's logical for B&N to put a book on shrunken heads right in between books on Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn? 
Makes sense to me. 

ALSO. That day, we went to a concert at local 506 to see Midtown Dickens, Paleface&Mo, and Holy Ghost Tent Revival. 

Midtown Dickens: I love them. They were the first to play, and I didn't realize how many instruments each of them play. The two main girls both play banjo, guitar, percussion, trumpet, and trombone. It's crazy. Personally, I really enjoy their music. 

Paleface and Mo: Pretty good. Didn't turn out quite like I had imagined, based on what I've heard of them on Four
Thieves Gone, but they were still very entertaining. Mo always looks so happy when she drums. XD

Holy Ghost Tent Revival: ... I don't even know where to start. They were so awesome. I'd seen them live before when I went to see Bombadil, but since they were just opening, I didn't really get to hear a lot of them, even though what I had heard from them live was amazing. Their CD doesn't come close to capturing how awesome they are live. The two main singers (banjo player and bass player) both ended up getting bloody hands. 

(We ended up talking to this guy after the show... he was really nice! I offered him some bandaids for his knuckles but he said he'd be fine... XD)

Unfortunately I did not get a good picture of the bloody banjo, though. 
Best I got: 

Also, continuing on the painful bloody note, both my feet got hurt at that concert... XD
The (slightly heavy) guy in front of me was jumping around and all and suddenly stomped onto my left big toe.. D: I wasn't wearing shoes like converse or something with a rubber toe.. I was wearing flats...
And then later... someone drops a beer bottle and it shatters everywhere and I feel a piece hit my foot but I just guess that it bounced off and I keep jumping around. But apparently it had gotten into my shoe and I jumped on it ... So I had to limp off to the bathroom in the middle of a song (going past Joe Kwon in the process) and took off my shoe, the inside of which was pretty much covered in blood. A girl walks in right as I'm staring at the blood in my shoe and asks if I'm alright. XD 
It ended up just being a tiny cut.. it just bled a lot... I ended up just sticking a paper towel in my shoe because I'm pretty sure a bandaid wouldn't stick. 

Oh and about Joe Kwon... we definitely got to meet him after the show. He's pretty cool. I was very excited to get to meet him. Stephen had originally said he wanted to get a picture with him, but we never did... ! Nothing to prove we met him :(

Alright but anyway, I had more random pictures to put up, but they don't really match with this post... not that it would really matter that much. 

Oh, and you can watch the concert (well... a bit of Paleface and Mo and HGTR) at tourcast.tv and click on "On Demand" and then the Paleface & HGTR. Observe the awesome.

self-interested post @ 10:38 pm


 I'm starting to think that I really care way too much about what other people think. 
But, I was thinking last night, that I sort of contradict myself. I recalled how I acted in the restaurant we ate at for dinner, and I realized that I don't really bother anymore with faking emotions, especially with strangers. 

I used to be incredibly self-conscious about what everyone thought of me, including strangers.

Now I just don't really bother with trying to impress people... I guess unless I really would like the person to have a good opinion of me.

And even though I'm not really trying to impress people anymore, I still feel like I'm not really being myself all the time. I think I'm letting other people choose who I am, instead of me deciding who I am. Or maybe I just don't know what I want to decide on. 

Maybe I'm afraid to actually do what I want... like dress how I want, act how I want, like what I want...

I don't want my family to be unhappy with how I am or want to be. I'm already the black sheep of the family, and I'm kind of hesitant to do what I want, because I don't think my family/friends would approve. 


I don't know, I feel like I'm contradicting myself a lot with this. There's a lot of random thoughts about this that I have, but piecing it together into something that makes sense isn't really working. 

I'm sorry, I don't usually like writing with so many forms of " I " in one post... and I'm sorry for being emo. 

Also, I realized that a lot of the things that I like some how connect to Amanda Palmer. It's strange. Maybe I should listen to more of her music. 

I think I will learn a lot this summer...

Spiderrrsss (and lots of pictures) @ 12:58 pm

Current Mood: amused amused

Srsly, there's a freaking spider problem in my house. 
The last time I was at home (Monday) I was taking a shower, when I looked around to discover there was a (small) spider in the shower. Aaand I managed to get it down the drain. 
After my shower, I went back into the bathroom, and discovered the same type of spider on the floor of the bathroom. So... I took my sister's sandal (which was for some reason laying on the counter) and killed (I thought) the spider (later I went into the bathroom to discover that the spider was gone, and even later discovered a dead spider next to the bathtub). 
But last night, I was already getting to bed kinda late, so I headed towards the bathroom to wash up and stuff. Then I noticed that there was this HUGE spider in the hallway. I froze and decided that it was too big to stomp on, so I figured I could put a cup over it and... I dunno... wait or something. 
Unfortunately I couldn't find a disposable cup downstairs, so I had to use one of my dad's monogrammed tumblers to put over it, on top of which I put a VHS copy of "The Swan Princess" and the sandal that I used to kill the other spider a while ago. 

^It's enormous. 
So anyway, once that was over with, I performed my elaborate girly routines in the bathroom (washing my face and brushing my teeth) and went back into my room.
I was finally all settled in my bed until I looked up at the ceiling. 

See the dot next to the fan? That's the spider. XD

So I took my flip-flops, and killed it, without getting it onto my bed. Yay
But it kinda left a gross mark... (dunno why I took a picture of this)

So yeah. I ended up falling asleep around 4ish, because I was afraid that there were spiders everywhere. Which there just might be, because I live in the goddamn woods. 

^(My disappointed-at-how-many-fucking-spiders-there-are face)

But in non-spider related news, I finally moved out of my dorm. It was kinda sad... until I realized how much I had to clean/unpack. This is what my room looked like before putting away all my college stuff: 

But after about 2 or so hours, I have managed to organize and put away most of it. Although it kinda pissed me off that my dad came in later and was telling me that I still had a lot of work to do and that I really needed to work on it. >>

Annnnyway. A few days ago I helped Stephen clean his apartment. Some highlights: 

Discovering 11 jars of his mom's (delicious) homemade strawberry jam in his refridgerator.

Finding a glass in his refridgerator with a solidifyed Pepsi gel type substance that didn't move when I turned the glass sideways. 

A prophecy in the mail. 

I think we managed to get the apartment moderately clean.. Hopefully enough to satisfy his parents :O
But anyway, I think I'm gonna go to Moe's and then see Star Trek today with Meghan and Jordan... Even though I kinda don't want to spend the money for Moe's AND a movie... Beh. Moneys. 
OH  but I may get a job at Claire's, as soon as the lady decides to call me. Yay! 

Alright, long post is done. It's ok if you think it's TL;DR. I apologize.

There's like, 100 atoms in my pencil. @ 10:51 pm

Current Mood: blah blah

So Stephen was distracting me as I was trying to write my physics paper (XD) and this is the fake start we came up with:

Beach erosion is good bad made of atoms. Lots of atoms. Like 1000. Sand atoms. THE END. :)

I dunno, I thought it was funny. XD
But anyway, I has that paper and a test for Physics both on Tuesday, which definitely sucks. I’ve pretty much spent all day writing this paper, and I haven’t even started with studying for my physics test.

But anyway I’m super hungry right now… all I’ve had to eat today was this (really good) bagel at Bruegger’s and this chocolate pastry from Panera. But now I’m gonna go to my dorm and eat the other half of this delicious Stromboli that I got at this place in Wilmington. I’m pretty excited. But then right after I have to study physics. :( Bleh.

I don’t want to studyyyy.

Omg Quiz @ 08:56 pm

Current Mood: bored bored

 This is what I'm doing instead of getting a head start on my paper. 
I've been in the library too loong! I needed a break. 
Sooo I took a quiz.. Here.Collapse )I took more but I couldn't figure out how to get the codes in this post. So I'm gonna just leave it.

Beh @ 12:25 am

Current Mood: stressed stressed

 So I am super stressed
Basically this Tuesday is going to suck. 
I have a CSDI paper and a Physics test... 

But with the CSDI paper, I had to observe two speech-language therapy sessions... which I still haven't done. About a week and a half ago, I started emailing and calling random SLPs with some hope that I could get in a couple quick observations... and one out of all of them actually contacted me back. But I'm basically screwed...
and I really have no excuse, since she assigned this to us at the beginning of the semester.... But I've been trying so hard to just become an intended major, that I haven't really focused on the project that's for only intended majors... because I wasn't even sure if I'd be an intended major... 
Beh I reallllly don't know what I'm going to do. Maybe if I can schedule an appointment to observe by Monday and just write a note on my paper saying that I have an appointment to observe... 

But today wasn't so bad when I wasn't worrying about these observations...
Meghan, Ryan and I went to this place called Rita's to get this weird ice cream thing that actually turned out to be pretty tasty (tasty). It was flavored ice with custard on top (I got raspberry ice and chocolate custard). 

Aaand then Meghan and her mom went to go dress shopping and since I didn't really want to get trapped with Meghan's mom for an extended period of time, I followed Ryan to his house where we watched National Lampoon's European Vacation. Aaand then Meghan came and we watched Soup and played Clue. Which I won. :)

And on the way home I kinda kept remembering Tuesday and how much I am dreading it, because I need a B in my CSDI class to even be considered for the major, and I don't have a back-up major. And if I don't get into this major, the chances of me graduating in four years is less likely. Then I started thinking of all the things I kinda failed at, which got me all depressed feeling. 
But then I got into my room and found this: 

A basket full of Reese's.  (on top of my word search book XD)
So that made me feel better. 

I dunno, I really hope this works out, because right now, it doesn't look like it's going to.

Current Mood: blank blank

 So the Facebook Nations app keeps coming up with these awesome issues. 
Another exampleCollapse )Also, I pretty much spent like a bazillion hours (or around 10) in the library studying for Physics, and I took the test at 2. I'm 95% sure I bombed it. It's ridiculously frustrating how he never puts questions that I know on his tests, regardless of how long I've studied. I was about to freak out in the middle of the test because I didn't know a majority of the answers. Beh. Only 1 or 2 more of his tests... 
Oh and the other 5% is him miraculously curving the test so I pass. 

But anyway have a happy March 31st
