well i haven't updated in a while, but yeah.
home has been good. kyle has been really good. i still have questions, but i'll always have questions cause that's just me. oh well. i love him; i should just enjoy the ride.

i want to go back to the 'herst, but i'm not prepared to start work again. laziness has gotten the best of me this break. too much tv, not enough reading. but at least i have that week before classes start to get all my partying/laziness out of my system so i can really focus next semester. i need to be way better next semester. i can drink like a fish still, but i need to be way more effective with my nonhungover time so i'm not attempting to do all my work on sundays while being hungover/watching football.

but yeah. i don't even know why i update this thing anymore.

sunday afternoon [04 Dec 2005|03:55pm]
[ mood | happy ]

well i've had a good week back in the herst. found out i did reasonably well on my two papers and the exam i had before break. so that is a positive. on the negative side though, i have a chem quiz tomorrow and a math test tuesday and i have no idea what is going on in either. poop. oh well. only a week and a half left of classes; i can't believe first semester is almost over. it is true when they say college really does fly by.

i miss kyle a lot. seeing him makes me realize what i'm missing when he's not around and it makes it harder. like right now we would be watching the bills together (whichhh we are dramatically winning at, go j.p. losman) and cuddling. but only a few more weeks then i get him for the whole month! i've been talking to bartos a lot recently which is good. she tells me humourous stories.

on the whole, i miss a few select people from home, but i feel like here is where i belong.

oh and there's so much snow on the trees; it makes me so happy.

back in pittsford [21 Nov 2005|01:13pm]
[ mood | nostalgic ]

i am back in pittsford. none of my other friends have the whole week off, so it isn't that great yet. let's see...

positives:
+seeing kyle and spending the night at the u of r
+actually enjoying spending time with my mother
+going to a cheerleading practice today (i miss it!)
+possibly going visit people at mendon today or tomorrow
+SLEEP
+the food network

negatories:
-missing the herst kids
-being bored and wanting everyone to get home
-having work to do
-no snow yet (storm this weekend though-sledding anyone?)

in conclusion, come home pittsford kids! it will be excellent once you are.

in the boat [09 Nov 2005|09:10pm]
[ mood | decent ]

currently i am seated in "the boat" as i fondly refer to it; more accurately it is two arm chairs that i put facing each other to form a boat-like contraption. it has become a favorite place of mine at amherst. it's in this little nice alcove, so it tends to be very useful for doing work.

i heart mytunes. it is so great. i hadn't really been downloading music since i got my new laptop, but now i'm getting all this great music for free (stealing, schmealing- i don't want to start that debate). anyways, i'm getting back into fun jammy music that i haven't listened to in a long time (phish, dave, moe., string cheese...), and i am enjoying it thoroughly. i find many people at amherst tend to be what i like to call "musical elitests." well i suppose they are just elitests in general, but i digress. it seems very frequently to be about who can like the most obscure bands. death cab is a requiste for any place list. oh well, it's not like i don't enjoy those types of music- just not the attitude that can go along with it.

oh and i want to go to bonnaroo next year.

my mother was here for parent's weekend, and she brought kyle with her too. yesterday was an absolutely gorgeous day; we went to the football game. a lot of fun, but it made me miss cheerleading even more-i want to start a squad here! we will see how that goes.

anyways, they were both good. my mother and i didn't fight so it was relatively pleasant. it was really good to see kyle, even if i will see him again in less than two weeks. it's just nice to have someone to cuddle and kiss with. the phone is great, and it allows us to stay close, but there is nothing like lying together not saying anything.

i'm like a cheezy romantic comedy with a happy ending.

my schedule for next semester sucks. seriously. i want to punch the registars office or the chemistry department or the physics department or something. they need to coordinate their schedules so they don't offer labs at like all the same times and no others. ARGH!

reasons why tonight was like college summer camp:
-kb can fit a plastic machete down her boobs and no one notices
-she then proceeded to weild said machete at will when he sat in my (chair) boat, and then simultaneously we broke out into "move bitch get out the boat, get out the boat"
-we waxed a small part of jack's leg hair and he shouted excessively loudly "that did NOT feel good"
-we wore fake stick on moustaches
-we chased helen around the hall attempting to tickle her until she collapsed on the floor dying and people came out into the hall asking if she was being raped
-a least 5 of us then proceeded to have a multifloor "scent war" which involved febreeze, axe, body spray, and hair spray

i heart this.

first update in a long time [30 Oct 2005|05:31pm]
i haven't updated in ages, but livejournal seems like a excellent way to procrastinate some more now that i am at school.

soooo what is going on in my life...
i am going to school at amherst college in massachusetts. it is brilliantly small and welcoming and i must say that i love it. wayyy more than i had expected to. i think being in such a small town with a small group of people has forced me to have amazing relationships with the people here. for the first time in my life, i have a steady group of girlfriends. my roommate is awesome; she is one of my best friends here. my classes are very interesting; i love some of my professors and can't stand others. but so it goes. i feel insanely challenged in all my classes; everyone here is so smart. but i am doing well-its weird going from the top of your class to like a high b student. but it is worth it. i probably party a bit too much here, but that could be said for all of amherst pretty much. it's shocking how much people drink here and yet we aren't even a big state party school. i can not even imagine what one of those would be like.

i am still dating my boyfriend kyle. he goes to u of r and loves it there. i miss him, but we are making it work. i don't know; i get the urge to run free and sow my wild oats once in a while, but we will see.

i miss pittsford, but amherst feels like home to me now. i am more comfortable and happy here most of the time than i ever was at home. i really miss cheerleading a lot though, but besides my friends that is pretty much it. i thought i would hate being constantly surrounded by people, but i love it. i get my alone time when i need to, but i am pretty much always with other people and it is fantastic.

in conclusion, life is awesome.

the song begins again... [10 Nov 2004|04:17pm]
her hair bears silent witness
to the passing of time
tattoos like mile markers
map the distance she has gone
winning some, losing some
but she says my sister still calls every sunday night
after the rates go down
and i still can never manage to say anything right
and my whole life blew up
and now its all coming down

she says, leave me alone
tonight i just wanna stay home
she fills the pot with water
and she drops in the bone
she says, i've got a darkness that i have to feed
i got a sadness that grows up around like a weed
and i'm not hurting anyone
i'm just spiraling in
and then she closes her eyes
and hears the song begin again

halloween with gsquad was a blast. i thoroughly enjoyed spending time with those girls, i dont do nearly enough of that lately. stigmata was a ridiculously scary movie, good though, go rent it now.

hopefully life will calm down a bit now, the brown application is in (im applying early), so cross your fingers for me! unfortunately i am unable to post gsquad pictures as of right now becuaseee i have exceeded my space limit on photobucket and they wont let me open a new account for a while or something? who knows. so pictures are to come in the future.

just a quick one [19 Sep 2004|09:23am]
[ mood | tired and busy ]

i barely even have time to update anymore cause life has just been crazy. im doing well thus far in school, and i finally feel like im getting a grip on calc and physics.

lets see. cheering is going well, i like my team a lot for the most part.

saturday was full with abbotts and cheering, and today brings a ridiculous amount of homework and mother forcing me to write college essays. yeah, thats about it.
