How could I neglect to mention how excited I am for this weekend.

I can't believe I'm known my love for an entire year. That's a very long time that has just flown by. It has been one of the best years of my life. He's just unbelieveable and I love him with all my heart. I'm very excited for this weekend because I know it will be special. Even if nothing special was plan (...I'm not sure what exactly, but something is...)just being with him would be enough for me. I can hear the gaging and I respect that. So I'll just have to update you when I come back from my magical weekend.

10/30/06 10:34 pm

It's been eons. I know. I never know what to update one. So yeah, I wrote a paper today or yeah, my advisor stood me up again.


Jon spent the weekend with me in Boston! And we had the most amazing time. Damian, Danielle, Jon and I were adorably inseperable. It was just a huge double date all weekend. We walked about six miles around Boston on Sunday to show Jon the city. On Saturday, it rained so the four of us went on an excursion to the mall in Braintree. We also went to good 'ol Wal-Mart for more knitting supplies. Did I mention that I taught Jon how to knit, and he's knitting a scarft. He's actually quite good at it. Anyways, then we went bowling, but the best part was the arcade. I did DDR for the first time. That shit is crazy. I loved it. And Jon. I just don't know what to day. He was a DDR machine. Like holding the bar. And going all crazy perfect and fast. His DDR ability was shocking, and a complete turn-on. Haha.

On Friday night, we went to see Saw III. Absolutely fucking amazing. It was nice to be able to cuddle up to my man and watch people dismember themselves. Totaly turn-on AGAIN. Haha. We went to the 12:30 showing and didn't get back until 3 in the morning. Which was crazy. Want to hear the empitemy of cuteness? Jon and I lay awake for an hour in a half on Saturday night going over our guest list, our bridal party, and where we want to get married. Sounds trivial at this point in our lives, but it was truly heartwarming. Laying there with the man you love more than anything just listening to the sound of his voice.

But after a few days in Boston I had to bring him back to the bus station at 5AM (NOT A PRETTY HOUR) so that he could get back for class. I was super sad, as usual. But, this time it was I who walked away. Usually I'm the one getting on a train to New York City, but not this time. It was really hard. But, I keep thinking about how amazing the next time I see him will be. For his birthday I bought Jon and I tickets to go see The Lion King in NYC, and I'm so excited. One because it's The Lion King. Two because it's NYC. But most importantly, I get to be with my baby. I want to go on the earlier side and eat dinner in the city. And then go see the show. And either go back, or if I somehow come across a lot of money get a hotel room in the city for the night. Just think of how great an empty hotel room, Jon and a large empty bed sounds in the same sentence...? A-FREAKIN'-MAZING!

I miss everyone from home. I can't wait until Thanksgiving Break. I'll probably be home either Monday or Tuesday. Still working logistics out. Can't wait for the game! See all my slymers.

10/10/06 07:43 pm - Fuck Rednecks, Let's talk about New Englanders

On Monday night Danielle and I went to the Colleges of the Fenway first chorus rehersal and it was great. I missed singing so much. It made me think of all my girlies and select few guys at home who sang in chorus. The head guy is actually really funny and tries to incorporate basic music theory into the rehersals. Which is a great review.

We kind of rearranged our room tonight a little bit. I saw another room that was just like ours, actually right above our heads and the girl who's bed is on the same side of the room mine is on had hers against the wall. And I have this weird thing about having my bed against a wall. Mostly security issue, but it makes studying and sitting up in bed much more comfortable. So anyways, I put my bed against the wall and I'm happier now. Tomorrow the poster sale and we need to decor a few of the walls because I didn't really bring any pictures that hang on the wall. I left my beautiful photo display to greet me when I come home.

Classes are intersting. One of my teacher's last name is Hell and rightfully so. There's something about her that's a little frightning, but overall she isn't that bad. I found out from Shelby that the history class I dropped has a shit load of work involved. And since I'm taking twenty credits, which is insane when all the classes are intensely academic, I'm really glad I don't have to battle that class with four others. There's about 120 pages of reading for the first week including the reading and test on a 40 page syllubus. HELL NO. Unfortunately, I might end up having to take the class later on, but as long as it isn't right now. Just not right now.

I'm loving the fact that I'm taking Intro to Social Work because I'm getting reinforcement on what I thought Social Work was plus a wealth of knowledge. There are so many options in the field of Social Work. I'm looking into Gerontological Social Work which deals with older adults basically Senior Citizens. But, I have tons more semesters here and Wheelock before my practicum to make up my mind where I'd like to work and who I'd like to work with. The more I learn about being a Social Worker the more I realize how it's a life long career. And I'm also loving Cultural Anthropology because I just find other cultures and groups of people facinating. Everyone should read (http://www.msu.edu/~jdowell/miner.html) and let me know what they think of the article.

I visited Jon last weekend and had a lot of fun. First of all, if you haven't seen Crank you need to. It's a great movie. Jon's 21-year-old Uncle Abe, whom is just known by Abe now, lives with Jon now. Abe's adorable girlfried Alicia was there and the four of us had a massive double dating weekend. I had lots of fun and it was nice to have the two of them there for the few hours I was up before Jon got out of work Saturday morning. Abe, Alicia and I sat outside for like three hours just talking and laughing and smoking. The fact that the three of us didn't mind just scrubbing it out in the beautiful weather on a Saturday morning was great. It felt really good to chill outside and do nothing.

I'm excited to go home this weekend. But it's weird because I don't really feel like I need to in some ways. I talk to my mom and grandma a few times a week and my dad and I talk like twice a week, but talking to dad on the phone is weird, but needs to be done. I miss my kitten like crazy. And my bed, but this one at school isn't turning out too bad, now it's against the wall and everything. Haha.

It's officially 9 months for Jon and I and according to Danielle we're officially a baby! Which is funny. That's all I really had to say because I'm really tired but I took an hour in a half nap a little while ago and I can't fall asleep. Gr. I miss my peeps from home. I'm going home next weekend so I get to see my R-O-S-I-E! Hope everyone is enjoying school~ Much love, Yours Truly

It's been a while. Too long since I last updated. But, I'm at Wheelock and have been for about a week now. I'm loving it here. I just moved in Freshmen and Transfer students since 7:30 until about 11:00 and there are some really great people here. There are a few new transfers on my floor who I introduced myself to and they seemed taken back my the friendliness of my gesture. Just call me the Wheelock Welcoming committee. I'm in love with my R.A. I actually went bowling with her and a few other R.A's and they are all really awesome. I'm excited to meet with my Freshmen Advisees tonight. I've seen a handful of them and introduced myself to try and make sure they are excited about the meeting tonight and hopefully their first year at Wheelock as Freshmen. So even though being a student advisor has shortened my summer vacation and taken precious time that I'd be spending with Jon and friends, I am so glad I'm doing it. I feel more a part of the community which is what I was trying to do and it's working as corny as it sounds. It makes me actually want to be here.

Danielle moves in tomorrow and I can't wait. This room is so barren without her and all of her stuff. I don't think I'd ever like to live in a single.

I also grabbed a new plant from the Alumni Association and have yet to name her. She's a spider plant. I'm still brainstorming a good name for her. At least now Bernie the Bamboo plant has someone to chill with when I'm in class.

I miss all my loves back in the E.L.

I had the most amazing week. I had so much fun going to Seaside Heights in Jersey with the love of my life and his family. It was relaxing and it gave me a tan. No complaints. Days sunning myself on the beach and being taken out by Jon jumping and riding a wave into my ankle. And nights eating greasy food on the boardwalk and taking a romantic ride on a ski lift across the beach and boardwalk with my life.
Then there was the last night we were there. Jon, Abe and I stayed and got really drunk. Abe and Jon taught me some quality drinking games and they were so much fun. You know you're really drunk when you just can't be sure if you've every been this drunk beofre. And we played beer pong with some guys that were staying the in room next to ours. One of the guys, Steve was excessively drunk and definitely hit on me and said some things that were past the line of appropiate. You know he was drunk since he was telling Jon that if I wasn't dating Jon he's basically be doing me.
After a few days of laying on the beach during the day and walking the beautifully moonlit boardwalk at night we headed back to Middletown. Jon and I saw World Trade Center and Snakes on a Plane...for all who've seen Snakes on a Plane you'll appreciate the following outburst..."I'm so tired of these mother-fucking snakes on this mother-fucking plane." That movie was so bad ass. WTC was intense. I think I was fine for the first 40 minutes and then I proceeded to cry for the next hour or so on and off. A few times I considered leaving to compose myself. It made me feel so guilty for turning my back to everything surrounding 9/11 because it's all so patronizing, but the movie was a much needed eye and heart opener in my life.
Unfortunately today I had to come home because my summer has come to a close too quickly and I am moving back to school on Friday. I do miss all my girls from school and I am excited to have a new start. With one year already there this year will only be better!

And once again. I owe my life to Sex and the City. It always holds the answers. I think we all live vicariously through one of the SATC girls, but I think I've lived through all of them.

I'm leaving in the morning to go see Jon and I'll be back Tuesday morning. I will miss you all.

Jon left yesterday and I miss him like crazy. Counting down the days until I leave to see him. I miss him like crazy. It was so nice to have a warm body to drape myself over and sleep next to. Especially one that I love with my heart and soul. It was nice being able to turn and be kissed or reach out my arms to have a hug whenever I wanted one. I got a new tattoo today on my foot. It hurt and was very uncomfortable, but luckily Sean's hand was there for me to grip hard and cause a loss in blood circulation.

I've realized that I really miss Sarah and Danielle and feel like a really awful friend that I haven't talked to them in so long. It's crazy to think I'm moving back to Wheelock in a month in a half. Crazy. I'm so not ready. That means I have to pack. No lie maybe four good outfits and then lounging and PJ clothes. It was all I seemed to wear there anyway.

6/27/06 10:35 pm

I haven't been updating because I haven't even had the time to come online let alone take a few minutes to update about my uneventful life. Things are great as usual. Jon's coming on Saturday to stay for a little over a week and as we speak he's going with his dad to buy his car. I can't wait for him to get here. Someone to spend my day with. There seems to be so many moments where I just stop and realize I really have nothing to do and everyone seems to be busy. This is the time most people take up a hobby, but I've been reading Twelve Sharp (amazing as always, really really awsome) and I've scrapbooked all the pages I can without more wonderful events and tons of more pictures.

I made the Dean's List and agree with Sarah's away message that it doesn't feel as good because we do go to Wheelock High. But, believe it or not I busted my ass for most of those grades. I spent hours upon hours and put much stress and passion into just about every paper I wrote this year, and I wrote so many papers. Not having test saved me. I rather spend five to seven hours writing a paper than studying three hours for a test.

Did I mention how excited I am that Jon's coming? We're all going to have so much fun over July 4th. I want to see some Fireworks!
