Time:9:48 pm.
If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place, just because they exist, & who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

(cake or death?)

Subject:For once I want to be the car crash // not always just the traffic jam
Time:6:43 pm.
Mood: flirty.
For those of you who don't know, I've recently got a new job, and I'm no longer with William. Both things happened within a week of each other, not by any planning on my part heh.

I work at Beyond Bread (Campbell/Ft. Lowell) and it's quite nice :) I'm always super busy at work, which is a nice change of pace from my previous jobs. Other places, I'd just be standing around with nothing to do, but at this job, I'm constantly busy. I'm essentially a sandwich maker but I also pull orders that are done so that they can be brought out to the customer. Sounds glamourous, no? :D If nothing else, it'll give me experience for other jobs in the food world. There might be an opening in the pastry section sometime soon, I think I'm being considered, which would kick ass because that's what I really want to do. The job doesn't pay nearly as much as I'd like (only $7 an hour, so less than my old job) but at least I'm full-time and very busy when I'm there. I work with some very nice (and some very nice-looking ;) ) people, and some strange, albeit interesting, people too. Let's just say there's never a dull moment :)

In regards to breaking up with William, I felt it was just something I had to do. Nearly three years with a person, at this time in my life, got me thinking about the sort of person I want to be with and the goals I want to reach in my own life. Being single after such a long time is somewhat freeing. I guess I thought it might be, but it sort of feels really nice to do some things on a whim heh. At first I regretted my decision but now I see that it was truly what I wanted.

I'm not dating anyone right now and it's nice to leave my options open. It is strange and quite nice to be interested in new people. Guy #1 is very nice and things are progressing well, and Guy #2 , while also very nice and also totally hot, is sadly not single. But, it doesn't hurt to look, and think In regards to that, Anthony's advice was "Go get yo man" haha. Oh Anthony, I you! I hope you're enjoying grad school on the East coast!! :D

So now my main goal is to save up money so that I can get my own place. How I dream of that day haha. Shouldn't take me too long. I was looking on craigslist a few weeks ago for places for rent, some were very promising. I haven't looked lately, and they get new postings every day so I should get on that....

I hope everyone is doing well and being happy! :)

(4 cakes, please | cake or death?)

Subject:"Have an onion ring. Best in the state if you ask me."
Time:12:58 pm.
Mood: contemplative.
So last night was the series finale of The Sopranos. I'd lapsed a bit when the first part of season 6 aired but I got myself caught up online, and had been watching it since the final 8 or so eps aired. I don't know how many of you reading this do watch that show, and tuned in for the finale but it was a bit disappointing to me at first. There was so much TENSION in that last scene, but nothing even happened! So many potentially suspicious characters in the diner, Tony making eye contact with most all of them, while his family met him there one by one. I thought for sure one of the suspicious people was going to shoot Tony, but no one did. At least while the action was still going on, onscreen. When Meadow came into the diner and the screen went black, I almost thought something was wrong with my TV. They've never done an episode like that, at least that I can recall. I read some viewer reviews regarding the final episode and someone made an excellent point, that may or may not have been the creator's intention. When Tony was sitting in the diner, looking at all the people around him, the tension was so unbelieveable, it seemed like, as that reviewer put it, "for a second, we were Tony". We could feel his constant paranoia as to whether or not he would be killed by every person who came through the door, and now the more that I think of that as a possibility, the creators did a great job in transferring that paranoia onto the viewer for once, leaving Tony content to share a basket of onion rings with his family, mostly without incidence. Bravo, Sopranos creators. Your show will be missed.

(1 cake, please | cake or death?)

Subject:Hello, livejournal
Time:10:33 am.
Mood: cold.
I don't even remember the last time I wrote in this.

I'm at William's computer. He's still in bed at 10:34 am. He sprained his ankle on Friday evening while playing basketball with some of the illustration kids and I took him to the ER later that night. It took over an hour for the doctor to finally see him, he told me, but I assume that's fast for an emergency room. He got all outfitted in an ace bandage and this black plastic-and-foamy ankle/shin support thingie. We went to Walgreen's and got his prescription for crutches filled (seems odd to me to get a prescription for crutches) and then to IHOP at 1am for a late late dinner (or an early early breakfast). I adore their butter pecan syrup!!

I'm cold. It's always cold in William's house in the morning.

I was inspired to write in here again after reading some entries in the LJ Spotlight, about a girl named Harriet and a boy named Nik (she's from London, he's from.... somewhere in the US, I forget... Minneapolis??) who had met on LJ and met in person months later, at the beginning of Feb. SUCH cute stories and pics from both of them. I've friended them and they seem really nice.

I think I'm hungry. Maybe I'll make William some breakfast in bed. :)

(Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)

I miss somebody right now.  (My dad, William, my grandma (RIP), old friends...) I don't watch much TV these days.  (...unless I'm at William's house) I own lots of books.  (I even own lots I've never read!)
× I wear glasses or contact lenses.  (...no, but I should) I love to play video games.  (When I'm in the right mood, and then, only old NES games :)) × I've tried marijuana(Hell no)
I've watched porn movies.  (Of course!) I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship.  (moderately so.... :-/) I believe honesty is usually the best policy.  (Mostly yes. Not always.)
I curse sometimes.  (Yes, but not as much as I used to.) × I have changed a lot mentally over the last year. × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.
it goes on...Collapse )

I can't believe there's another space shuttle launch today. When I heard about it, I cringed, thinking of all the past shuttle disasters. Those people going up in the shuttle are brave as hell.

(cake or death?)

Time:11:38 am.
Mood: painful.
I sprained my ankle :( I was getting out of bed at like 5:30 this morning to let my cat out of my room and my left leg had fallen asleep and I wasn't aware of it, so I get out of bed and try to stand on that leg and it just gives out and I collapse to the floor. The top of my foot is all bruised and swollen, and I have to hobble anywhere I walk. You really take walking for granted when you can't really do it easily :(

(5 cakes, please | cake or death?)

Subject:wtf?
Time:9:15 am.
Mood: melancholy.
I just woke up from a horrible dream that seems oddly true even though it isn't. It was like it was today, and some plans I had fell through and I called Meghann to see if she wanted to get together and she said "I'm going to spend time with my friends", really acting as if she wanted nothing to do with me and thought I was pathetic and not worthy of her time. She's really my last good friend that I still talk to, all my other friends seem to have just lost touch with me (or maybe me, with them) and I never talk to them anymore. Often times, I do feel like I have no friends, especially when I hear about other people and how much fun they have doing stuff with all their friends. I guess I was never one to have a huge circle of friends, just a few good ones, but now I don't even have a few good ones anymore. I don't think it was something that I, alone did wrong, as to why none of my other "friends" don't keep in touch with me. It's an awful feeling when you feel like you have no friends.

(cake or death?)

Subject:there are no words.
Time:12:07 am.
Mood: outraged and sad.
I just finished watching that A&E cable movie about United flight 93 that crashed in the Pennsylvania wilderness on September 11th and I am so angry and sad about it. I feel so bad for the poor people who were on that flight, and on the planes that hit the World Trade Center, too. It was so senseless and tragic, it's ridiculous. One of Lindsey's teachers knew a guy who was on flight 93. That's got to be so weird to actually know somebody on the flight, and know what they went through.

I remember a few years ago, Meghann showed me a picture of when she was younger and took a trip to New York, and her family was in a picture with the World Trade Center in the background. Looking at that now is like looking at a picture with someone in it who has since died. It's a weird, sad feeling.

Our poor country. And stupid President Bush. What an impostor.

(cake or death?)

Subject:Another art project!
Time:6:14 pm.
Mood: accomplished.
I finished my other sculpture project today, and took pics in class. It's based on the book A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving (he wrote The Cider House Rules).

I carved a small dressmaker's form out of basswood and attached caster wheels to the bottom, and a steel rod with a baseball attached. The dressmaker's form is imprinted with text from the book, and stained with wood stain and clear shellac.

(2 cakes, please | cake or death?)

Subject:arty goodness!
Time:11:51 pm.
Mood: groggy.
I've been working on some sculpture class projects, and I finished one tonight... it's a small record player with an old rotary phone handset that plugs in to the back of the player, and plays the song "So Far Away" by Carole King. The lid of the player is covered with pages from the book The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides, one of my favorite books of all time (I highly recommend it). The whole project is a commentary on the book (and the movie of the book, to a lesser extent), and the part of the book where the neighbor boys called the 4 sisters and played songs to each other over the phone. One of the songs they played was "So Far Away". I hope you all like it! Leave me some comments with your opinions :)

A human body falls fast.Collapse )
