Guess it finally feels like a proper Christmastime now.

New York finally has gotten snow for the past two days and as much as I love it, I do not like when I have to go shopping in the city and decides to wear my Uggs, which are now completely ruined beyond fixing. I was in the city from 11am till 4:30pm, and by 12:30 my Uggs were soaked, and were soaking through my socks, meaning my feet were sitting in soggy uggs and socks, creating squishy little puddles that almost froze my toes. Another factor was that we went from Herald Square to Time Square to 14th Street and Chelsea/Village..walking really (and the occasionally train). I did get half of my Christmas Shopping done and the rest will be completed tomorrow and Monday.

Today is gonna be entertaining and busy, since its my mom's family xmas party, which is gonna be a lot of fun. All of my mom's siblings, and a few of their cousins are gonna be there. I get to see my cousins, which I love since I hardly ever get to see them (thank god for facebook!!!) and we will imbibe in the drinks and food, like we normally do. Since we are all almost close in age, its nice since, the majority of the lot can do things together with out such a big age gap. Hopefully Jeanna and her family will be done for the Xmas, we would all love to see them!

I took all my finals...just need to get my grades back, along with my grades from the winter session and than I can send in my application to SUNY New Paltz!

rain.
constant hard aggressive rain.
i love it.thats what happening outside my window again.

**god i love it. the rain just makes everything seem better. i love hearing the pitter-patter of the rain, its so soothing and calm, like your old baby blanket or cuddly stuffed animals, or the strong and caring arms of a lover. god. i have become sappy in my old age. oh well, figured since i never really had the best relationships with love while in high school and the first three months in University...it truly is a nice change of pace for me. And makes me want a relationship that could last more than a few months and be built on strong foundations. oh my...did another ramble. this is the one downside to a blog, i can constantly ramble and ramble with out anyone biting my head off or telling me to shut up. but i need to get something off my chest or else I will burst in a supernova of emotions that would make someone in the soap opera world jealous.**


it sirius topick:
why do people always assume that I'll be splendid if you drop plans for hanging out using the excuses they always use and turns out that it was a fucking lie. "i am not feeling well" or "there has been a change of plans and I can't go" or "rain check...can you come out here or something like it" or the best one that I love and always find is complete bullshit is the one where we keep our plans and I arrive their waiting like an idiot for her friends to come for an hour or two and become sad and than have to fib a bit and tell the people that "We had fun doing what we do" instead of telling them the truth...that it was another abandoned meet up. Always have happened to me and most likely always will. isn't it pathetic. and these people are supposedly my best friends.
Many friends have done this over the years and continue to do this. sucks really but i guess i have no other option but to stick through this life that I have created for myself. And guess what, to let this hit home for me, I have decided to share my small sample of that which i dont like...being truly alone.


i've a perfect example story:
a) their was this girl who has my best friend for over half a decade. been through everything you can imagine. [sleepovers, dabbling in wicca and some other stuff, blood sisters, heartache, stupid little "you had to be there moments", vacations with each other and telling each other our deepest and darkest secrets, suriving HS and elementary school with each other too] And than comes graduation and me moseying along to AU...and entering a whole new life and new friends.

But i never left her in the back of my life....always invited her to visit me, or tried to talk her into meeting up in the city. and on the days that I went home for the weekend and i told her so, she hardly ever visited me.
Than came January and that month rocked my world like no other, bringing everything I knew and believed in down, crumbling like Pompeii did for Vesuvius and she tried to help me but in the end abandon me to a swirling pit of darkness but my other friends pulled me out of it and helped me get to where I am now and where I want to go.
She never again contacted me...no phone calls, no im, no myspace or facebook. I get nervous and than found out, around the not Merry Month of May that she got in some deep shit that she loves but will ruin her life in the long run.

1)Did i hate her?...back than, for abandoning me? no..never.
2)Do I hate her now? At the moment of right now...Yes. I can say I hate her. For promising me that she would never leave me as a friend. But I look back at our memories...always showing up late for hanging out, saying yes and never showing up. I have learned a lesson from her though; she showed me the ways a Best Friend Can Fail At Friendship.
3)Will I hate her in the future? Maybe not, Hopefully she will be apart of the chapter in my book of experiencing the world and look at with a longing to be young again and have that connection again or Maybe even forget that she ever existed in my life.

In conclusion: i hereby free myself from the constraints of our friendship.

bit more about:

**partial disconnected attachment-to only sever part of an affection.**

this is how my life currently is, or I call it PDAS (the "s" meaning syndrome). sounds about right and dont think I am "emo", I am far from it. Its just how life is for me right now, certain connections in my life are severed and appear to be irreconcilable for an indefinite amount of time which is fine by me, and than there are others that I am upset about and I cant really let people know about it but there is one person I could tell about. She is one of my best friends, and one of the few people who i could trust with the dark secrets about me. And I am seeing her on Wednesday for a girl's day in the city, including Shopping, Lunch, Jamba Juice. Thats why I call it partial since I still have a group of people that I can count of both of my hands that I will be friends with for a while and with everything that bothers me.

i must say that the old expression is true "Better to few friends who would take a bullet for than many friends who would stab you in the back" Yikes!

Okay.
I am so excited that it is already December! Like you can't believe how excited I am! Its the holidays...and I get to do my annual pre xmas lunch with my girls in the city on Wed, and and and its finals time, so that means classes will be over soon!!! Like this tuesday soon! ahhh...this means I am only getting closer to PC & The Inauguration & my Birthday of course! Your probably getting tired of all the exclamation points and stuff but humor me here, plz!

I had Psych today, so i was kinda like doozing away since it started at 8am, and i popped up at the question a few of the girls were talking about. It was the "Sex Up, Marry or Throw a Cliff" question but she asked it like this "You have a Marine, A Navy Boy and Army guy...who do you chose to Sex Up, Marry or Throw off a Cliff" And boy did that spark a conversation. I didn't get a chance to answer...quite sad though but the entire class all spoke their opinion on it and i kinda got one sneak in and my boy Jeff heard me and snickered (i hit him after class on the back of the head) "Depends on the size of the weapon for Ms.Gallagher over here, and I responded "Dont matter the size..its how you use it". Never realized how over sexualized that sounded in a Psychology class until now.

Good times, Good times.
Oh on to a few other things.
Early Morning Shopping Tomorrow .... maybe or maybe not I will go with Mom. I kinda wanna go by myself since I need to pick up the parental's gift and my friends too.
Doing pretty well in classes/ Love all my classes except my Music class right now since the professor is a prick.

give the US Economists a gold medal!

the bright economists have official declared the US to be in a official Recession.
what the US have been in a non-official Recession since October than? stupid apes!
Obviously...and now that its "official", i guess the rest of the world is gonna follow our footsteps soon and go like "the nation of blah-blah-blah has entered a Recession". OMG, it is just frustrating.

Bombings in Mubai? It was orchestrated by 10 young adults and was successful considering the idiots who did it, some survived and got the passports of americans, brits and israeli's in India whoop-e-doo!!!! think they should have realized that, during the attack- it was split between Indians and Foreigners something was going down?!!?

Plaxico is dumbass: what a dumbass...shoots himself in the leg. hope the giants get rid of him. they won against the red skins with out him. no skin off my back if he is let go. let the other players get a shot.

Clinton is Secretary of State in Obama's Cabinet: boy will this be an interesting four years. all the egos in his cabinet...I wish i could be a fly on the wall for those meetings dealing with international cooperation and dealing with world crises. good luck US!

it hurts.

i cant do it anymore.
all i wanna do in life right now is cry myself to sleep and never wake up.
everything hurts so much...everything is so bleak and i dont know why.

i cant....take it....any more.

i have accepted the fact that my life is going no where. Isnt that sad?
a girl who could have had everything but lost it due to a fucking mistake that everyone atleast makes once in their life. And i made it and lied and now...now it feels like its going down into a dark spiral.

i just want to scream as loud as I can and make someone notice me!!!!! i know i people that love me and tell me they know me as well as they know themselves...but its all a lie! A LIE! NO ONE KNOWS ME!!!!

i wish...oh i wish that I could escape the life I made for myself...without making anyone upset. i need comfort that no one can give me right now and I will probably never get that for a while anyway. I want...so badly to...to change who I am, but its not happening and I am not stopping myself.

is someone stopping me out there? A Deity? A God? My own Human Subconscious?!!! WHY CANT I FIND THE ANSWERS!!!!
i cant believe that I am rambling on again. Here I sit, a computer in my schools computer lab, trying to hold back in my tears from exploding, I dont even know why I feel so emotional and weepy all the time. God I am a wreck...officially a real wreck.

can i get past this? how do i get past this? what the hell should i try to get past?
i dont even know myself anymore, and I am so scared, so scared that no one can see it...see what is in me.

i
need
a
rescue

its official!!!!!

I just got my official packet for Presidential Classroom 2009: The Inauguration!

And I am excited for this event, its gonna be soo good to see everyone again and to meet new people too. We are staying in a totally different place than we stayed at for the 2006 Presidential Classroom: Future World Leaders Summit. And I don't really have that much of rigorous schedule, so that means no 4am wake-up calls, or Hannah kicking me to wake up and trying not to crush Julie on the floor.

This makes me wonder who will be my roommates this time around, I use the plural because your normal crammed into a hotel room with two to four other roommates. I guess they didn't take into consideration that four girls in one hotel room with about 10 luggage cases and one bathroom would cause some major problems...but we got through it really, and made those 7 days more interesting than any other trip I had.

So off-track that was, but it relates I swear.
This program is special because it is open to Alumnae of PC of all ages, and that it is for the Inauguration of either McCain or(n)Obama to the seat of the POTUS(or President of the United States), and that I get to attend my first Black and White Ball. I am like over-excited!!!!

TTFN!

i have chosen my new tattoo

This year... I am getting another tattoo. Where..I am not so sure yet.
Curious to know what is it? You will probably have to wait, until I get it and tell you.

But enough of that. Last Year, after my graduation...I got one that wrapped around
my ankle, and it did hurt, So i wondered...if i wanted to get another one...what should i get?

I thought and though and I am down to three, but it is positive that i am getting another tattoo.

SUCCESS!!!!!


YES!

I am allowed to withdraw from that terrible Music/Movement class due to the fact that it is not necessary for me to take, since I AM A LIBERAL ARTS/SECONDARY EDUCATION MAJOR!

NO MORE NO MORE NO MORE!!

i am super super happy!!!!!

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

the topic is odd i know but

one post following another right. Yea but I was reading CNN online, trying to read up on the Money Situation and what exactly is going down in all the sense of the word. Most people are nervous and for good reason but they should be even more nervous due to the fact that our nation and other nations have become an international interdependent conglomerate in span of 30 years.

What does that mean to the American people in small towns? It means that everything is connected to each in simple terms, the example is that the NYSE is connected to the LSE & they in turn are connected to the HKSE (which in a nutshell is New York Stock Exchange = London Stock Exchange = Hong Kong Stock Exchange) which connects to other Stock Exchanges all over the world, bringing it back into New Yorks' playing field. One gets hurt..and the other will slowly but surely feel the pain. And that is our situation right now.

No, i am not an economist nor am I rich bitch princess. I just happen to family in the business and i am a very observant person. AND one with a half a brain could have figured out exactly what i just wrote.

On the Track /*/*/*/*/ Off Track
I feel that our Government also should stop giving so much help to all of these companies due to the fact that...WE THE PEOPLE NEED THE MONEY MORE!!! HELP US YA KNOW! That money can be sent down to Texas and such, or even for programs. Yes I know, I know that with the money market that will be even harder to do. The Government should understand that they made the mess, they should get out of it....or they should have at least seen this coming up our asses, right? Mentioning government right now also brings in the fact that it is election season...AND NEITHER CANDIDATE IS RIGHT AND WILL BE THE BETTER PERSON! Obama's promises are nothing but dirty and empty. McCain, even though he is a republican, his ideas are okay but wont help in the long run..only the short run (which is about 6months to 3years).
Getting off Track /*/*/*/*/ Back on Track:

Another thing to be worried about is the greed that grew and grew for these Fortune 500 companies that are tanking and having to be saved by each other only to fall into ruin before being bought out by European and Asian Companies. Example 1: would be Barclay's buying Lehman Brothers. This can be taken in two ways, uno for this being good and having everything build up by tapping into some-what foreign markets or dos for being bad and having the financial problems that are affecting us, slowly start to affect the European, Asian, and Middle Eastern Markets. Slowly proving that what all good history lovers know and preach to people that HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF!" Honestly...HELLO RECESSION! That is where there is good possibility that we will be heading.


This is just making me crazy and nervous..since when we graduate...we are gonna have to deal with the job market for business and politics firstly and secondly for all the other jobs since...this money equals our our medical and insurance coverage and benefits will work out.



this is a really really really long post.
sorry to have rambled but I have a
five hour break inbetween my classes,
from 10:10am to 2:50pm, leaving me
with nothing to due, so i have decided to
be more active in my blogging. No matter
how mundane it may be or how exciting it
may be. Wishing Happy birthday to Nora and Jillian
today!

hate being an education studies major!

argh.

stupid idiotic music movement and workshop class. I hate it with a passion. I DON'T WANT TO TEACH CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF ELEVEN!!! I really don't see why education studies majors have to take this stupid class. Specially ones who want to teach History.

God..basically the reason why i am flipping out is that we need to work for one hour a week with students and "teach" them music, while recording it on a tape recorder. Which I feel we shouldn't do..since its like an invasion and I wouldn't want that done to my child or children. Honestly, just let us watch the children and help out with the teacher and let us observe and take notes on it.

I have asked like three schools, and they were like "we would love to help you but we are unsure if we can allow you to record your session." I explained that it was like forty percent of my grade but they were like "no, but we would need to send out a letter and get permission and the teachers permission". I hate this. I hate it. I hate this class. Just let me do the art workshop and get over it.

Honestly...i am thinking of asking my adviser if I can drop the class and just sign up for the Art Workshop in the spring and just use that as credit. But probably that wont happen, since they wanna torture me and make me teach music to the age group of students, I really, really do not wanna teach.

argh .argh .argh .argh.
i just wanna pull my hair and scream out loud,
or maybe I should just switch majors and be a librarian?

a Hurricane and a Glass of MonaVie

Well. Well. Well. Look what the cat dragged in?
i love that saying, isn't quite catchy?

I am trying to think of something interesting or exciting in my life to write about but that hasn't happened yet. So i sit here with a glass of MonaVie & having my windows partially open to allow a mist of water to come through due to TS Hanna. Aren't I a lucky one? Blessing of living on a beach.

Due Tropical Storm/Hurricane Hanna, i am doing absolutely nothing this weekend. It is such a drag really. Once school starts and I have things to keep me busy...it wont be so boring. I will be able to go into NYC and do some serious shopping around. Be able to use a gym more often, since CUNY has one on most of their campus's. And gives me a chance to figure what the hell I want to do with my life after i move on to Brooklyn College.
Boy..this is where I miss not being closer in the vicinity to my bffl's who are at Adelphi, enjoying themselves and getting closer to each other whilst I am stuck in the sand hills of Rockaway Beach, still stuck in a small beach town.

So...with my obsession of General Hospital, i have been trying to do detective work to find out whats gonna be happening through spoilers and SPECULATION. And through what I have dug up...it appears to be interesting and can definitely shake up Port Charles.
Example A: We all know that for the Sonny/Kate Fiasco Wedding, there family will be attending, along with friends, colleagues and enemies. But Enter Olivia Falconeri, Kate's dearest cousin with BOMBSHELL of a SECRET! :: insert big audience gasp::
AND OR AND
Example B: With Laura giving her daughter strength and Lulu being called in as a witness for the trial of her lover-boy, the Mob Prince Johnny Zacchara, will she tell the truth of what happened or will she flee the country with the help of Big Brother Nikolas and Johnny?
dun dun dun

Felt like i should mention this because obviously none of my friends truly enjoy GH, like i do.
I ponder at what the secret could be that Olivia has. She did have a relationship with Sonny, so maybe she had his child and that child is known to Port Charles; or maybe telling Sonny that he and Kate had a child that she gave up for adoption before graduating college and moving on to a relationship with Trevor Lansing? Maybe, Maybe not...it is my idea of what could go down.

goals?

I have a few things that I want done to become a studious and dull child to do it I so will do that.
AND what that it is, is to study harder and try to devote atleast 3hrs a day to studying
I am taking 5 classes this semester and each of them are 3.0 credits each meaning that for the Fall Semester 2008 which equals 14 credits. Four of those classes are 3.0 credits and one of them is a 2.0 credit class (none the less, it is still important). And my goal is to pass the semester and maintain almost perfect attendance. My class schedule consists of

Psych 32: Mon, Thurs, Fri- 8 to 9am [Human Growth & Development]
Music 27: Mon, Weds, Thurs- 9:10 to 10:10am [Music of the Worlds People]
Educ 23: Mon, Tues- 10:20am to 11:20am [Music and Movement Workshop]
Ant 37: Mon, Tues, Thursday- 12:40 to 1:40[Intro to Anthropology]
Psych 24: Mon and Weds- 3 to 4:30pm[Psychological Disorders in Young People]



My other is to read 4 non-school books in the span of September 8th till December 18th. This is to make sure that non-school books are to entertain me,make sure I don't go uber-bonkers.
Those books are and not necessarily in this order:
The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger
Legally Blonde by Amanda Brown
Sex, Murder and a Double Latte by Kyra Davis
The Catholic Girl's Guide to Sex by Melinda Anderson, Kathleen Murray and Ali Arnold



And included in this is to lose some excess weight. I will also need to watch CNN & BBCA a bit more often to catch up on the news all over the world (again) because I am returning to Presidential Classroom and I feel I should have to catch up even more.
And I will be devoting some of my blog time to politics and what not, as to look back and refresh things in my head.

taa!***

S.N.L

Who doesn't love Saturday Night Live...its such a good an amazing and timely comedy show.
And in that I include the beginning in 1975 till around 2003 since they had the best years in between that, so many that I couldn't choose.

i write this because I am watching 101 Most Unforgetable SNL Moments on E! (Entertainment Channel...yo!!) And Wayne's World is NUMBAH 1!

so many good skits:
Celebrity Jeopardy comes to mind!

Figures.
Well..today starts the arrival of all the family and friends of the Gallagher's. Why you ask? Its my Uncle's wake and funeral this weekend. It's upsetting to lose him at a young age (was only 53) and that he went so quickly too.It only took about three weeks from when he get bad and than finally, stopped fighting and passed on. All of the immediate family is flying along with all the cousins..and I mean all of the cousins. Thats 21 + 25 + numerous Rockaway-ites that grew up with my family and became super close friends over the years. So we are renting out a very local resturant's upper floor for food after the funeral for those mentioned above only, really keeping it small. I have to say that its times like this that it lucks out to have an uncle who owns a funeral home. On top of that, my cousin was in a serious motorcycle accident but is doing quite well (he has a fractured skull but thats it) and he is coming up to funeral which is really good since he wont be alone than while everyone is here. So its been very very hectic couple of weeks.

Moving on to the next topic:
Finally figured out what my CUNY portal name and password was, so that takes care of alot of things, especially when I have to sign up for my classes for the spring and summer semester next year. I would really like to the winter semester but I can't since I will be attending PRESIDENTIAL CLASSROOM again for the Inauguration of the next President of the United States of America....AND AND I get to see alot of my old Delegate mates from PC: Future World Leaders Summit 2006, which will a great boost. Got a little off topic but back to what I wanted to say about the CUNY Portal thing is that it leads to e-Sims, where i can register and pay my tuition online and all that jazz.



that is all

In life, God only gives us as much trouble as we can handle but sometimes the more he gives us the more he trusts us and it sucks because you can't handle all of it.
And right now thats what my family is going through...proving that no matter what the bond of a family is stronger than anything. I am happy that I can vent on this, knowing that people that I know never check this thing nor do they now It exists.

On to a happier subject: classes will resume very soon and thats exciting for me, since school is lively and gives me a wonderful escape and I will mostly likely need that soon depending on how everything goes. AND all the fabulous people from Adelphi are coming back!!!! Yess.....party time returns oh so soon!!

And to keep updated;
Lets see, according to the news, whats going on:

1)oil prices are going down and the American Dollar value is going up. Wall Street is fluxing but the bad things is that it will go up and go down again until we hit some stability but no one knows what that stability is or will be.

2)Politicians should learn TO KEEP IT IN THE PANTS!!! FUCK THE PRESSURE OF BEING SUPPOSED VICE FREAKING PRESIDENT!!! THAT MEANS YOU JOHN EDWARDS!!! Yea...blame it on pressure that your going through.... and have to tell your wife who is sick with cancer....you fucktard!!! Well no one is getting choose him as a running mate...SO YOUR POLITICAL AMBITIONS ARE RUINED!!

3)Olympics have started yesterday (China is a day ahead of New York). Everything seems to be going so well and I cannot wait to watch everything. But China better get the move on with Human Rights and how to handle the activists without looking like the oppressor and not being a more modern nation. We also opened the newly rebuilt and restored American Embassy in Beijing today.... conveniently Bush is one of the few western Leaders attending the opening ceremony while the other leaders will be attending the Closing ceremonies.

4)Russia invades South Ossetia, which is in Georgia (no the US, but a former Soviet Republic)
South Ossetian's have Russian Passports but Georgian Politicos want it to remain under Georgian Control. We have relations with both countries but we have Military advisor's placed there (and they also have a sizable force of soldiers in Iraq).

wooty woo!

its official! I am on the road to planning my trip to C0MIC-C0N 2OO9!!!

i have been researching everything, including airfare and hotel prices. I am going to plan entirely in advance such as making reservations as early as Dec/Jan. And booking the flight around maybe like Mar/Apr for a very very early flight out of JFK to LAX.

your probably thinking that I am insane for doing everything early but it is a smart idea. So i can see how much this trip is going to cost. I may be doing this alone or I may not...it depends. My mom prefers that I don't go by myself but no one else really knows that I truly live up to the word geek. Its a badge of honor. Think I may ask Barbara if she wants to come?

Catchy...Catchy?

i know. the headline sucks but whatever, i dont have te ability to make it catchy or eye popping.
this time i have decided that maybe i should just do a review of stuff, so here we go:

Movies: The Dark Knight equals AMAZING. Heath Ledger, Aaron Eckhart, Christian Bale,
and Gary Oldman were incredible as usual. The scenes containing Bale as Batman and Ledger as the Joker are interesting and prove their worth as formidable actors, especially with Ledger's role and how much he took the role into his own. (God Bless His Soul).
On that note: there are rumors are already starting about the third sequel and names are being pulled out of hat. Nolan said he wont bring in Robin(Both the Dick Greyson*Tim Drake Versions) but he never said no to other characters. Personally, if and IF HE DECIDES to do a third, i would like to throw out a few characters can work in Nolan's movie-verse. They are
a)The Riddler (portrayed by David Tennant w/ hair dyed Red or James Franco)
b)Hush (portrayed by either Gerard Butler or even Justin Hartley)
c)The Mad Hatter (portrayed by Jim Carrey, Johnny Deep or
d)Mr.Zsasz (portrayed by Billy Zane)
e)Harley Quinn( Brittany Murphy)
f)Catwoman (Angelina Joile, [only if you play her off as manipulative, highly sexual and like Batman is the face whereas Bruce Wayne is the Disguise].


Any one else has opinions?

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

I think that this is one of the times that I am happy that hardly any one knows that I have Blogger.

Let me roll back to why I believe this:
Recently... I just took a vacation to Mexico with my entire family as I have previously mentioned in other posts. Looking back---family vacations are good to point and than they just plain old suck, honestly. I had fun, don't get me wrong but it just ended up sour for me in the end, and with the entire family giving me strange and pitiful looks the day we left the resort did not help me. (I love my family but sometimes I feel like the pink sheep in a barn of white sheep). On top of that: I lost my loverly amazing camera that had photos that I didn't get the chance to upload on them which pissed me off to no end &&& i left my i-pod charger in the bathroom of my hotel room.

Back in the states right now: finishing up my last week at session 1 classes and have my finals tomorrow and thursday. Yes, since i was in Mexico for a week....I had to skip a week of classes for both my psych and socio. Which sucks since I have a super big gap to catch up with and the stupid old socio professor wont really go over what HE taught and I have that final on Wednesday!!!!!! which is tomorrow! Well on the other hand my psych professor was really nicer about it and let me take the test that I missed and gave me the papers I would need before hand to help prepare myself.


got caught in the rain walking to school this morning. it sucked. i had no umbrella with me. stupid back didnot protect my head. feel grumpier know because of this day. blah.

Changes in the House of Gallagher

There are some monumentous things right now, even more than I ever expected their would be.

Firstly....we have the second family trip to the Mayan Rivera; this is including everyone in my family basically thats 22 of us and out of the number, seven of us are cousins and are the party children. We leave in two weeks and I am excited and nervous. Why you ask? Well because at times I cannot stand my cousins, especially when they are drunk and I am drunk; 8 days of fun filled family events; and spf 50.

Secondly...myself, my parents and my mom's family will all be meeting my mom's eldest daughter on July 5th, in upstate New York. Yes...Jeanna agreed to visit and finally meet everyone of us. I am super nervous, since she is bringing my niece with her and her husband. Will she except us? Will she like me? How will this go over? SO many questions and I do not know what to do!

Thirdly...I don't feel like myself anymore. I feel like a shell of myself honestly. I need the summer to be over like soon, so I can go back to being the real me and hang out with my girls again. I miss the nights out, none of my other friends wanna do these things, they are like "lets go out and party at a club where YOU will feel uncomfortable" or "Nyahh we should so do nothing and be bored like totally".

something

Not exactly sure how life is going tight now. Nor do i know where its gonna take me or who it will introduce me too.
But i do know one thing though, that it will probably be better than the past couple of months I have been having.

Thunder Booms, Lighting Skies

Today was 99 degrees by 5:30pm.
And currently at 7:20 it is thunder storming and raining like crazy.
And its 95 degrees also.

Listening to instrumental music like this makes everything more majestic than it is. It also gives me an idea I should really give to my cousin Stephanie. She is a writer and is working her way towards Hollywood. I wish her the best..she is one of my favorite cousins after all.

Also found out some news about one of my good friends, and I am really good friends with him. Its sad and I always find a way to help him out but there is no way i can help him this time and it saddens me this time. I hope he didn't make the mistakes I did. Whatever happens, he will always have my support....he is one of my besties.

Still trying to find work...I am hoping my luck changes soon, and I that i get the job at limited too. I really do want it, I honestly do, it will make traveling from school easier.
Peace

cleverness and beer

Hello again it has been ten days since my last post... and I have officially finished my midterms for the spring semester at CUNY KBCC.
I was able to find out what my Lit grade was for the semester..and not surprisingly it was a C-, but I passed it and I get my four credits..so NYAHHH NYAHHH NYAHH to the teacher who told me I was gonna fail.

Now I am just waiting on my European History(took today), my Foundations of Education(took today), my Political Science/American Gov't(took yesterday) and my other Education class(took in May).
Hope to get them soon, so i can see how well I did and to see if I got my 2.75 GPA meaning I am allowed to stay there (HAIL MARY LET ME STAY!!)

Next note is that trying to find a job sucks. I still have yet to hear from KBCC, Aviator Sports Complex and Limited Too and not to mention Dunkin Doughnuts. I just want a summer job that will give me pay, is it truly that hard to hire someone?! Ughh, i am happy that I can at least make money through babysitting and being a mothers helper. I wanna try and be a true au pair. A friend of a friend did it, and made a shit load of money, which is something that I desperately need right now.

meh continue my ranting later..its shower and nap and 2 for 1 burger time!

Another Day Wasted & Gone....

once again it is a saturday and I am at home with nothing to do. God do i have a sad and pathetic life right now. I just want everything to go back to normal and back to what I liked. I mean why do I have to be so closed from my oldest friends? I mean, if our friendship has lasted over like 7 years, one would assume that we would hang out and do stuff, right?
No! Never! thats not how we work..... examples are that one of my oldest and dearest friend no longer answers my calls, instant messages, and emails. All I want to do is hang out and do lunch and walk around Manhattan, not with other people, just by ourselves at least once a month. But she has become a stoner pothead who is ATTEMPTING to go to College....I wish her the best at it but whatever.
And lets not even get on to the others...one ignores me, the other uses me for her sympathies, another is just a slutty hoe.


I need to starting tanning. I need to get to a gym. I need a life. I want my friends back from their home states. I need a nice large alcoholic drink. My life sucks.

Thursday, May 22, 2008

It is about almost of the end for the battle between Obama and Hilliary for the Democratic Nomination of President...who will go against John McCain who is holding it down for the Republicans. And with the whole two states votes in limbo of not being allowed to count is making everyone crazy. Honestly, if they allowed to the two states voters vote in limbo to count will place Hilliary ahead of Obama and that would make her the new front runner. My personal thought is that the powers-that-be in the Democratic party would rather have an African-American MALE than a Caucasian FEMALE in the position of Power of the Presidency. If Obama gets the vote... I am so voting for McCain--- just because I feel that if McCain gets elected and people dont like him, they public wouldn't re-elect him and that means Hilliary could run again and be victorious in 2012 elections.
Okay on this point....I was in philosophy class a few weeks, visiting my friend Aerinn and it was discussing the current elections and how religion plays a factor (really good discussion by the way!) and one of the students brought up the factor that she overheard her pastor speaking about how he the pastor believed that Obama Barrack was the Antichrist...which had certain people in the class laughing and taking offense. I thought that it was outlandish but the student speaking about her pastor, said that he had some good points and reiterated them. I won't get into the whole thing but I think that she had swayed a few people and EVEN the professor looked impressed.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Eh..not concerned about that.....Honestly I am more concerned about me finding a job this summer to help my parents out with the money and my academic-ness and my summer session classes. Thats about it. I got an application for the Limited Too at the local mall by me, and I just need to hand it in and HOPEFULLY get the job. Wish me Luck!

Rainy Sundays....

Its Sunday, May 16th, 3:18pm: and I am procrastinating by writing here than my Literature paper on a book called "The Namesake" by Jhumpa Lahiri because I don't feel like writing it. So I am on the carpet, laying down in the empty upstairs aparment because I feel like it. It is quite and I can hear the rain pitter and patter and hopefully catch a lightening storm but i doubt that since it stopped heavily down pouring.

Life: I have about maybe two weeks of classes left and than my finals. Than I take a summer session about a week after my finals till July 24. Yea I am the smart one for doing that I know..but hey I get to take up to 8 credits for free! Its good not to pay anything for once alright. Than I still have to find a job for the summer. which will suck but I have to do it. Oh well, lets up I get a good job at like a store or something!!! Joy

Personal: My friends are back home now and it is quite lonely. I have to say, sadly and pathetically that I have only four close friends and the rest range from friends to associates. Life is okay--- could be better but we are pulling through, since Dad is back to work and Mom has jobs again...and hopefully when I get my job I will be able to contribute to it.

....Because its 9 in the Afternoon....

I have a few things to mentions, so I am gonna do it number bulleting form---- yeeeeah!

1) Well....people....i have the best news: I AM SEEING PANIC! AT THE DISCO TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!
thought i should share that with you all. I am seeing it with BFFL Amanda and we are supah super excited. As its gonna be like our fourth or concert together. We have a tendency to do concerts with each other and vacations as well. I guess its because we compliment each other very well. Its a good thing that we BFFL's!

2)I have a Gov't exam tomorrow and I am so so so not ready for it. I do not do well with American Gov't class or any type of gov't class for that matter. I know that it is important but honestly...i am not going into government or political science but a teacher or historical researcher. Its not important in the careers I want and i agreed to not brush it away or off. I promise to do my best..but its BOOORiNG.

3)I was able to choose my classes for the Summer Module at KBCC; Which consist of :
Monday thru Thursday 9:00am to 10:35am- Intro to Sociology *
Monday thru Thursday 10:45am to 12:20pm- General Psychology*

And I was also able to register for my Fall'08 Semester classes at KBC
C; which consist of:
Monday, Thursday, Friday 8:00am-9:00am- Human Growth & Development*
Monday, Wednesday, Thurs 9:10am-10:10am- Music of the Worlds People*

Monday, Tuesday 10:20am-11:20am- Music and Movement Workshop*

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday 12:40pm-1:40pm- Intro to Anthropology*

Monday, Wednesday 3:00pm-4:30pm- Psychological Disorders in Children*

I think that it is a pretty good schedule you know? Yea...its crazy classes all at once but i can handle it, it is the same amount of credits i have now, which is 14 credits nd plus the 6 from the summer classes, and HOPEFULLY by the spring I will transfer to a SUNY and be back in a dorm setting and everything....which would be so amazing and back to what I know pretty well. I do not particularly care where...BUT if i have to transfer to a CUNY....it would most likely be to Brooklyn College.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I promised I would post pics and this is what I am doing. The three people in these photos are my sisters.
Nora who is the "fiery Irish Ohioan Weasley Hippie" &&& Aly who is the "Delta Gamma Te
xan Jewish Republican Broadway Princess" and Myself, who is the other "Irish Mamacita Jamba Vodka Juice Gypsy".
We are the odd triangular couple.
Me........Nora Nora...............Aly


AND FINALLY ALL THREE OF US!!!

sorry. i had to get that out.

Thursday, May 1, 2008

the first...and not the last

I am happy that i actually have a place to express my thoughts or just even type what i am feeling, since everyone that I know has live journal and facebook and myspace. Not a lot of them have "blogger", so i kinda lucked out finding this place.
What is there to say so maybe i should just write a bit about me. Is that conceited?....probably not AND
later on as I post, i will describe and add pictures to show my life, as I continue to grow and learn and party but i wanted to get this out of the way okay.

I am a nice brunette who is at the tail end of her second semester in college in the CUNY system. I live in a predominantly
Irish/Italian town in Queens. I have six very close female friends and an even larger group of male friends due what one of them call "little sister syndrome", which basically means i am the little sister and they are the over-protective brothers and its their duty to watch me. I have two half sisters and about 22 first cousins and 27 seconds cousins with whom i keep in relatively close contact with (we facebook it and talk mostly every other day). I am an animal lover, but i have an affection for Egyptian Mau cats and Corgi dogs. I am a Pisces and Earth Snake, according to western and eastern astrology. I am debating between Primary Education and History as my Major. I have a major love for Rugby and Scrap booking. Thats me in a nut shell, oh and my favorite drink is mixed drink or a good cold beer.
