10:13 pm: All right. This seriously stressing me out. Should I join attempt to join a sorority?

Pros:
Meet new people/make friends
Be involved with the school and charity work
Create a network of contacts for after college

Cons:
I'm super shy
I'm not the stereotype sorority girl
I'm a bit lazy when it comes to supporting my school (attending games will be a drag)
WHAT IF EVERYONE'S REALLY MEAN AND MAKES ME DO JUMPING JACKS UNTIL I PUKE???
WHAT IF I DON'T MAKE IT???? HOW EMBARRASSING!

*heaves a sigh* Omg. I'm very upset. Why did I get myself into this??

Somebody calm me down!!!

02:32 pm: I'm really over this unrequited love crap.
Ever heard of the question, "Which would you rather have? A great band no one has ever heard of or a mediocre band everyone loves?"

I've been mulling it around in my head for the past, oh four years, and I've decided that what I want more than anything is to be a writer. A real, honest to goodness, will-write-for-food writer. And not just that, a successful one. Which is why I ask this question. "Would you rather write amazing books that no one will ever publish or get published for your B-material?"

Sigh. The answer for me is I don't know. I really don't. On one hand, I want to write fabulous stories with characters that my readers will fall in love with. On the other, I would want to be published and successful and be recognized for my awesome-ness.

I have all this fantastical plot lines running around in my head, things that could never work out in the real world. I think they're gold until I start to try and make a real, flesh-and-blood book out of them and realize, "Hey, there's no way that could happen that way!"

But anyway, writer-inferiority complex aside, I'm angry that I'm getting so forgetful. My favorite shows, Gossip Girl and Lost, have been severely neglected by me. I'm just going to have to wait until the reruns come on because I simply couldn't be bothered to remember the original showtimes of each episode.

08:59 pm: Back from the dead!
Why is that when I'm down and blue, I always come home to my LJ? Really. Every time. I guess this in my safeplace. Haha.

Well, what's gone on since my last post? Senior year is over... I'm officially a high school graduate! Soon I'll go off to Troy for college. Wow. I still can't believe I'm this grown up. I feel like such a kid! But anyway. I'm typing away on my new MacBook Pro. It's pretty awesome, so far. It is going to be such a change from my desktop PC... When I was picking it out, all the funny commercials with that cute guy from Accepted kept running through my head. Thus, the Mac won.

I've seen a few movies and read a few books. The Host by the goddess Stephenie Meyer was perfection. Really. I can honestly say I truly enjoyed it. No Twilight, but most definitely worth your while. The newest addition to the Private series, Ambition by Kate Brian, was filled with the drama I've become accustomed to with Brian's books. Her books always leave me feeling sick with guilt or depression because of the hoops the main character Reed has to go through... I guess that's my fault; I always put myself in the narrator's shoes. *rolls eyes*

Last night, I watched "No Reservations" with Catherine Zeta-Jones. It was... all right. She of course was amazing. But on the opposite end of the spectrum, the little girl who plays her niece (Abby Something, maybe?) had the worst wardrobe and hair styling I've ever seen. She looked like a hobo child! Excusing that, the movie was sweet and left one feeling content with a predictable, happy ending.

Who saw the clip from Twilight on MTV's Movie Award?? I DID! It was good... a little different from the book, I thought, but still good. What are your thoughts?

Well, I'm off to figure out how to sync my iPod with my new iTunes without deleting everything off of my old iPod or PC's iTunes. Possible? We'll see...

05:18 pm: Not Dead.
Hello!

I'm not dead. Just busy.

And I've only signed on to remind everyone just how busy I am. So please don't delete me just yet. This is college application time, as well as scholarship time, as well as yearbook time, as well as regular school, as well as everything else.

Haha, so I will be busy, but not because I don't care!

I love you all. *muah*

09:12 pm: Sunlight is past, the twilight has come... Slumber my darling, the night's coming on.
Emilie... she's leaving... I can't believe this.

Last Friday, she left school early for her weekly visit to the psychiatrist. Next thing I know, her dad is having her committed and put on anti-depressants.

I don't really have time to tell the whole story to convince you she isn't the slightest bit mentally-imbalanced. All I know is now they're moving my best friend away to Ohio to live with her aunt. They want me to go on the trip with her...

They're leaving Saturday. She won't even get to say goodbye to anyone. How messed up is that?

10:19 pm: So, dears. One of these days I'll post a lovely entry.

But I'm afraid that day is not today.

cielnocturne asked for some videos as a way to say "goodbye." I thought the idea was amazing because I really will miss her entries. Maybe if you ask her nicely she'll approve you as her friend so you can read her soon-to-be less frequent posts.

08:25 pm: All right, kids. This post is mostly for my fellow Twilight lovers. And then, only for the obsessed ones at that. I was watching old reruns of that "blink and you missed it" television series Tarzan. (Great show, by the way.)

Anyway, there was one scene that was so Bella/Edward, I had to share.

His face drifted to the side, his nose skimming across my collarbone. He came to rest with the side of his face pressed tenderly against my chest. Listening to my heart.Collapse )

04:37 pm: Ice cream! ICE cream! Ice CREAM!
All right. So I know I've MIA. But seriously. Nothing has happened in ages worth writing about. I started school. I don't think I've posted since then (yikes) but it's been pretty boring.

My Schedule:
1st - Physical Science
2nd - Office Assistant
3rd - PreCalculus
4th - Music Appreciation
5th - Acc. English
6th - Acc. Government
7th - Bible

So, yes, it's a fairly easy course load. At least on the surface. Because, truly it's not easy at all! I hate Music! Everyone knows that class is supposed to be insanely easy. But this year they got a new teacher and WHAM. All of a sudden it's real work?

Boo. That's what I have to say to that.

And long story short, I told that to the teacher and HE CALLED MY MOTHER. It's not like I was a jerk about it. I just was saying that that's why most people took this class especially their senior year, because we'll all be stressing about college applications and will need at least one easy class. Shoot me in the face, why don't you?

Because that's what my mother wanted to do after she got a call from him. Ugh. I'm afraid to say that Operation Kill Music Man will have to be put forth. Think I'm kidding? Not to brag, but my friends and I have successfully gotten rid of our fair share of teachers. Hm, let's see: Jezebel, Heavner, Band teacher 1, 2, and 3, Stevie, and Frog Lady. Granted, this is over a few years.

But I think I've made my point. *rubs hands together evilly* Bye bye, Music Man.

12:49 pm: I know that you like me. You know it's not a secret.
Just a series of random thoughts:

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that tomorrow is the day. The day. The day that so many teenage girls across the globe will swoon (*thud*) over a single novel. Eclipse by a Stephenie Meyer. Pick it up. Whether you "run with vampires" or "howl at the moon", Meyer is sure not to disappoint.

I've fed and played with the puppies all day. The little one is feeling better, I think. He's playing with the big one and eating eagerly. Much improved, I must say. A funny fact? The only song that can put them to sleep: Send Me on My Way by Rusted Root. The song on Matilda? I think that has to be the funniest thing in the world.

Hm. School starts again on Wednesday. Ugh. Shoot me in the face. And I just found out (well, a few days ago, anyway) there supposedly are new, required socks all the girls have to wear. Last year, they had a lot of trouble with girls wearing too-short socks. The administration is in for a rude awakening if they think we girls are going to take this quietly. They look like granny socks! I cannot stand having socks be any longer than my ankle bone. I said the word "socks" a lot, didn't I? Socks socks socks!

I feel like dancing! Everyone join me in an impromptu dance-a-thon! I suggest the chorus of "Do You Know? (The Ping Pong Song)" by Enrique Iglesias, which is what I'm listening to.

Do you know what it feels like loving someone who's in a rush to throw you away? Do you know what it feels like to be the last one to know the lock on the door has changed?Collapse )

12:32 pm: First. I'm the most horrible LJ friend in the entire world. I am so sorry! I'll start making up for it... soon. ;)

Hm. I just watched the Barnes and Noble interview with Stephenie Meyer. I'm trying very hard (believe it ) not to think about Eclipse! I don't want to be in that anxious "I wonder what will happen!!" mode! I want so badly to calmly take the book and just read it. I don't want to furiously skim through the pages to see if this-or-that actually comes to pass, you know?

Sigh. Probably no one else in the world feels that way. Ah well. :)

But let's see. I don't really have much to say. I went to the school the other day to get a locker and a parking space... I can't believe I'm a senior. Ugh. My mother informed me, "You know, now that I have a job at the school, you can either ride with me or get a job and pay for your own gas."

My senior year is already looking mighty grim.
