Subject:Sometimes you read things...
Time:12:28 am.
And they make you wonder. About the past. About what might happen next. About how you find yourself sitting in a room you never thought you'd sleep in every night, overhearing a first person shooter video game you can't much understand, worrying over having to wake up early the next day and...

And then I guess you kind of realize it's as it should be. At least for now.

I forgot about this journal. Just like the rest. And now it's time to forget about it again.

Sometimes I like to re-visit old journals. Just to see if anyone didn't get the memo that I gave it up a while ago.

If you are one of these people, please add phase384 and delete this one.

That is all.

Subject:Liver and onions?!
Time:11:08 pm.
Mood: uncomfortable.
Although I won't be leaving til August, i'm compiling a list of things I need to do before moving away. I figure if I start early, I might get at least half of these things accomplished.

I have a list of personal things I need to get accomplished (visiting old friends, places, etc) but i'm still trying to figure out all the things I need to do aside from that. This is where all your Miami people come in.

What are your favourite places in this Gotta Love/Hate It city? Best places to spend a quiet evening at or the best night and blahblah club or the funnest karaeoke night or your favourite beaches, etc etc. What is one place here that would cause you to instantly become heartbroken? What is your favourite thing to do on any given day of the week that requires a long drive? What activities just scream Miami to you? Things that you can't see or get or do anywhere else but here?

Let me know if you have any ideas!

And of course, if you want to get together before I leave (again.. it's not for 4 months.. there IS time), let me know so that we can arrange something. :)

Subject:So they handed me the envelope.
Time:3:58 pm.
Mood: confused.
I'm not going to Seattle.

I'm going to Humboldt.

I have no idea how I feel about this (except that there's a very good chance those few people who might've thought about visiting me in Seattle probably won't visit me at Humboldt).

Maybe I need to just say fuck it and skip town to Thailand.

PS. Very good chance of an NYC trip April 27-May 2. Clear my head in Central Park.

Subject:It just feels good, we do it like you want it.
Time:9:27 pm.
Mood:like I ate some bad food.
5 days, 5 days, 5 days!

I should be getting ready, but instead I was having a burrito.
(I'm beginning to think it was a bad idea).


I'm currently missing my motivation for the evening. Gotta work on that.
Things could be better, but.. no rush.

Always in need of something new. Oh, the ADD of life!
To whomever might read this: let me know what's good.
I miss some a lot of you.

Subject:Ass and titties and big booty bitches.
Time:12:35 am.
Mood: sore.
I don't normally go out of my way to watch any awards programs. However, I somehow remembered to tune in to the Acadamy Awards this evening and well, now I know why it is that I normally don't watch these shows.

I was kind of excited to see how Jon Stewart would do as host, but I think most of his humor fell on deaf ears. I found him amusing personally, but I don't think the audience seemed to like him as much. I have to say though, he's definitely funnier on the Daily Show. He's just got to stick to his political banter.

Let's see. Well, whoever watched knows that the highlight of the evening was Three Six Mafia actually winning (not just performing.. but winning) an Oscar. Baffling, and i'm sure the other nominees had simultaneous heart attacks when they realized who they'd lost to. Actually... it was them against Dolly Parton and some lady who's nickname is "Bird", so maybe it was really a no-brainer. Plus, aside from the lack of black nominees, there were no black winners and well- that probably wouldn't have looked too good (let's not forget Jamie Foxx last year and Halle Berry a few years ago, and no i'm not being rascist, i'm being realistic). Really though, 3-6 has way better songs that should recieve actual critical acclaim.

I was sorely disappointed to see Crash won the best film of the year. That was obviousely the biggest load of crap. Plain and simple. I mean really.. A movie starring Matt Dillon, Sandra Bullock, Brendan Fraser, and Tony Danza wins over a movie with Phillip Seymour Hoffman, one with Jake Gyllenhaal (i'm going to ignore that he was in The Day Before Tomorrow, dammit), one with Robert Downey Jr. and Patricia Clarkson, and shit.. a fucking Spielberg film? See.. I actually haven't seen any of these movies, with the exception of some parts of Crash, but i'm just not buying it winning over any of the movies it was running against. ALL of those movies had a better chance of winning. My money was on Brokeback Mountain, but I guess Hollywood is still not ready for that sort of thing. They did win the most amount of Oscars, but even so. Maybe they were all just big fans of Who's The Boss, Miss Congeniality, and There's Something About Mary.

I'm glad Hoffman won for Capote though. I haven't seen it, but he's always been an amazing actor so i'm not surprised. I have yet to see Walk the Line, so i'm not sure how Reese Witherspoon did. I personally am not much of a fan.. but then again I think Kiera Knightly kind of sucks too. I refuse to want any other Mr. Darcy aside from the wonderfully gorgeous Colin Firth.

Anyway, case in point: 2006 better bust out with some better movies because these awards were sorely lacking in talent.

Also, i'd like to go see any of the following movies ASAP before I have to wait for the dvd version. If interested, please let me know:
Capote
Munich
Brokeback Mountain




With that said, i'm tired and i've got class tomorrow and I haven't even started actually reading what I need to. Bah to education!

Time:12:26 pm.
Mood: happy.
The Book of Bokonon says “Write it all down. Without accurate records, how can men and women be expected to avoid making serious mistakes in the future?” Cat’s Cradle thus becomes Vonnegut’s own warning to us against creating such a bleak future for ourselves.


With about an hour and a half til it's due... I'm finally DONE!!!


I can now breathe easy again until my next big paper is due.

PS. Everything is going quite splendidly.
PSS. I'm really digging this 6 LJ icons buisness.

Subject:Yet another reason to hate the conservative right.
Time:12:16 pm.
Mood: pissed off.
South Dakota became the first U.S. state to pass a law banning abortion in virtually all cases, with the intention of forcing the Supreme Court to reconsider its 1973 decision legalizing the procedure...

What a shitty way to start the morning. I really need to find out more way to help out than just spreading the news and bitching though. If you care at all, I suggest you do the same.

Subject:And the verdict is!
Time:2:31 pm.
Mood: relieved.
After a short bout of momentary madness, a twitchy right eyeball, and a three day long headache, I FINALLY TURNED IN MY APPLICATION!

Here were my final choices:

1. University of Washington - Seattle, WA
2. San Jose State University - San Jose, CA
3. Humboldt State University - Arcata, CA
4. University of Oregon - Eugene, OR
5. California State University Northridge - Los Angeles, CA

It's almost guaranteed i'll get in to Udub, but if not.. Cali is also great. And San Jose is about an hour and a half from San Francisco, so that's definitely something.

I can finally breathe again.

West Coast baby, here I come.

Mood: amused.
PS. If there's one thing I will always love. And I mean always... It's the fact that in my relationships. My pseudo relationships. My quasi almost maybe relationships. I will share very different, very new kinds of experiences with all of them. I've met a lot of people who tend to ehm... "run the same game", so to speak. Friends who have told me "watch out for that guy if he starts talking about x,y, and z". Because these seem to be the only things that work for these guys. So they tend to be able to only use these things and these things alone to try to uhm.. "woo" people into liking them. Not that I haven't noticed when it's been used on me (cause boy, oh, boy I certaintly have). However, I a) do my best to try to find other things to talk about and b) share with them things I did not share in my prior engagements, so to speak. Rather.. I never use the same nick names. I never take them to the same places. I don't fall into the same kinds of routines. I don't go along with the same tired old inside jokes. It's always fresh, or it gets dull. It dies because if it didn't work with person a., chances are it will never work. I'm not hateing. I'm just being honest. Attraction is about keeping it fresh, keeping it new, and not be be corny.. but keeping it real.

Subject:Can you say "back pack"?
Time:3:20 am.
Mood: jubilant.
I cannot stress how excellent a day this has been.

Let's see...

Went to the mall with Nat to use up that free stuff at Victoria's Secret card (yeah, i'm lame, whatever.. I dig fancy underwear). Had some good talks and such. Got sushi at Cafe Tokyo (was delicious). FINALLY saw In Droves who i'd been meaning to see for fucking ever. They were excellent and i'm sad i've missed so many of their shows prior to this one. Was wonderful finally seeing Jenny again and meeting her friend who was super sweet and seeing Emilio after so long and Quique too. Later we all headed to Bobby's to meet Mia Sky (his daughter).. again... FINALLY! And she was the most adorable, sweet as all fucking hell little girl i've met in my life. And I don't even like kids. But I can make an exception, I suppose. Then Nat, Erik (who finally paid me back for the Bob Saget show- have I mentioned i'm FINALLY seeing Bob Saget next week? Fucking psyched!) and I headed to the design district for Post Script. Got some dirt cheap drinks and saw some art (some good.. some not as much and horrendousely overpriced.. isn't that the case always though?), ran into Ceci and Luis, and had some good conversations. Then went to check out the Blow Fly show over @ PS14. Got in for free since I was w/ Allie and I guess they thought I was part of the New Times as well. Got myself a free hat, lighter, and key chain heh. Blow Fly didn't come on until Allie was on her way out though (round 1AM), but I got to jam out the whole way through. Even dedicated a song to me so I made sure to dance to every single one. Unfortunately, it was only about me and 3 or 4 other random girls dancing, and one by one they kept leaving. No matter, though. A good time was most certainly had and I will most definitely be catching him next time he's in town. David picked me up afterwards and we went to catch some grub at IHOP and finally i'm home. I realized when I got in how I don't think I ever have goodbyes as nice with anyone else. It's a really nice and welcome change.

Oh! And to top off my ridiculousely excellent day...

Turns out I got a check (an old work check I guess I never picked up) for $187!!!! Just when I needed the money too. This day cannot get any better.

Plus i'm tired so i'll sleep like a log.


And i'm excited cause we're going to the Renaissance Festival tomorrow! Which is wonderful since i'm a sucker for that kinda shit. And now i've got money for all the crappy souveniers I want!

Ohhhhhh yeah. EVERYTHING IS COMMING UP MILHOUSE!

Subject:Ending on a high note!
Time:12:10 am.
Mood: giddy.
1. Forget everything I said earlier. The responses i've gotten have been surprising and nice. I just wish people weren't so scared to talk about things sometimes, instead of just ignoring the situation. Meh.

2. I'm about 85% decided on the University of Washington in Seattle. Cal State East Bay has a lot of negative hype, so I don't know about that anymore. Sonoma's still in the running, as are San Jose State and Humboldt. We'll have to see...

Some visual reasons for digging UDub so damn much..Collapse )

3. WHO'S GOING TO COACHELLA!?!
I saw somewhere that the Pumpkins might be playing it, but I think maybe that was a mistake. Or a cruel joke. If they're playing, i'm most certainly there. There's about 50 other bands playing i'd love to see as well. But you all know my SP fandom.

4. In lieu of dropping my chem lab (I knew it was bound to happen), I think i'll take that 2 hour block to go to the school gym. Do something productive for myself. I'm in need of the exercise. Still in search of the right (affordable) dance class. Let's see, let's see..

5. And what's with the cold weather?

I just spent the last 15 minutes dancing around my kitchen. The hispanic in all of us will always make our feet tap at least just a bit when the Spanish music gets turned on. Can't wait to be back in Nica. I really miss Keila and my grandfolks. This time I finally have to go to Hipa Hipa! and stay in Montelimar at least a day. If I ever find someone that worthy of my time (and adventerous enough to come with), that is definitely one place we'd have to hit up together. And then we'd go and scale el San Cristobal as high as humanly possible. People really need to be willing to take more risks.


Oh yes. Last but (possibly somewhat, possibly) not lease: Happy holiday that technically is supposed to suck if you're single but if anything i'm having way less of a headache this year than this time last year! Let's hear it for singledom and a care-free lifestyle. And still getting a happy date or two in there. And a whole lot of excellent other things as well.
