Haven't posted in so long. Going to attempt to update regularly this year, fingers crossed!

NYE was ridiculous/amazing, a very fun way to start off 2011

Job interview on Wednesday. Don't want to get my hopes up but it would be so amazing to have a new start in a new place.

Totally crushing on an adorable younger boy.  He's out of the country for a week. Can't decide if I've made him so amazing only in my head, but hopefully things will go well.

Pretty lame post after so long, but it's a start!

so tomorrow I am London-bound for the summer. I am beyond excited and completely terrified. My internship sounds amazing and I get to live in my favorite city for 2 months, but at the same time I don't know how I feel about leaving.  Things here have been painful. Friends leaving and getting my heart all sorts of stomped on. The past two weeks have been miserable and it's taken all I have to just get out of bed. I'm hoping that leaving will help with some of this, but who knows? This trip has been my dream for as long as I can remember, and I am terrified that I will discover that it's not what I want. I sound so emo. I think I have this great talent for expecting way too much out of things and making them into something that they never were to begin with.  This causes a lot of disappointment.

I think the best I can do is just hope that this experience will be nothing short of amazing and somehow everything will just stop hurting.

So, I got into London two days ago, and being here has just confirmed that I absolutely love this place, and must must live here someday.
Started out sort of rough, I came down with some wicked food poisoning the first night, and after empying my body of any food I have ever eaten and laying in bed miserable for the 1st day of museums, i have almost 100% recovered. What a start, eh?
Other than the lovely start, things have been fabbity fab fab.  It's a lot colder than I had anticipated, but lucky for me, I am used to the arctic winds.
We still haven't really settled on a set New Years plan, but we have a few possibilites in the works.  Some crazy fools in our group have taken to drinking massively every night and then attepting to be awake and functional at 9 a.m when we start tours.  To be quite honest, I don't see the point in wasting so much money to get pissed off your ass.  I could do that at home for a lot less money. But hey, to each their own, yeah?
I just lovelovelove being here that I could give a fuck about getting wasted.  I have masted the tube and feel slightly badass navigating around the city. 
Also! in a few days, we go to Paris before coming back to London.  I have never been, and I think it's going to be amazing.  I feel very nervous about ma francais, parce-que I have not used it in conversation in over a year, but I guess i'll just try my best and hopefully not come off as a completely stupid American.
More later, when I feel like using the shady internet cafe again.  If anyone wants postcards or whatnot just let me know.
Cheers!

drunk on a tuesday.
i could have been so much more productive with my time, but instead I have been stupid and wasted money on becoming intoxicated,
I feel so very much alone lately.
London and Paris in 24 days and yet I cannot even be excited about it. It will be an amazing trip, but I have so many other things going on right now, that I can't  even be bothered to realize that I will be getting out of this piece of shit town in less than a month.

having a constant booty call, for lack of a better term, is both lovely and horrifying. It's enjoyable, but is that all I will ever be able to establish with someone? I question it all the time, So many questions lately, and no feeling of accomplishment or satisfaction, I just want to be happy.
un jour je serai heureux, et je serai aimé. Est-ce que mais jusque-là, que je fais ?

 Things I have actually accomplished today:

1. new car! i have named him Cedric and he is lovely.

2. attempted to find the video camera battery with no success. It's looking like I'll have to suck it up tomorrow and buy a new one

3. finished my ad & promo paper, started my buying final (early!) , (almost) finished with scheduling for next semester, and have read two chapters in politics. Overall, I'm a bit proud of myself

4. consumed an entire chipotle burrito in under 10 minutes

5. watched teen jeopardy and felt somewhat intelligent

6. possibly getting to bed before 1 a.m ??

definitely the most productive tuesday I've had in quite some time.

 Obama is the next president of the united states.  best birthday present ever.

I haven't gotten more than 6 hours of sleep a night in weeks and I feel like it's starting to show. meh.

Less than 2 months til London and Paris. I still don't think it has actually set in that it's real, but soon enough I will be beyond giddy.

Razorlight's new cd will be available in the states on the 11th. !!!! I've read it's a fantastic album and cannot wait to scour this stupid town for the one copy they will have.


A lot of good things seem to be coming together for me, but I just don't think I'm happy  about any of it, and that scares me.

 I am completely unmotivated toward anything school related.
This terrifies me, but I just can't figure out what to do about it

instead of buckling down and studying for my 2 exams tomorrow, I'm going to bed and just assuming I'll get up early and cram.
bleh. i wish I could just feel more about this.

 ugh. I'm a mess today. so much cold medicine. I even got ID'd for it, which i thought was ridiculous considering I was standing there sniffling and hacking up a lung. I really hope it isn't bronchitis, I don't have time to be sick this week, 2 exams, 30 hours of silly work and of course fabulous Halloween weekend, aka drunken mess night. I still need to get body paint and boots for the costume.

London&Paris meeting tomorrow! discussing class requirements and where we get to visit, I cannot wait. Tomorrow is also the first make-up meeting for the beaux arts fashion show. I need to get some ideas and concept boards together, but I'm excited to be able to start working on that.

off-topic- but there is something disgustingly satisfying about watching people get lipo and tummy tucks on t.v while eating a bowl of ice cream and a bag of dorritos. It's just so enjoyable.

I really hope I don't get called into work today. It would be so nice to be able to just not stress and get caught up on work, but with my luck, I'll probably have to go and it will be miserable.

I didn't get drunk at all last weekend. I cannot remember the last time that has happened, and I'm kind of proud of myself.

 today i have decided:

* not sleeping for two days will always result in disaster

* Gavin and Stacey is a fantastic show. watch it if you have not seen it.

* college is absolutely, completely ridiculous.

* the lovely boy, who I have yet to find a fault in, yet probably only remembers me as the girl who almost threw up on him while he was dressed as Jesus, has a lovely. lovely. smile. where to go from there? I have absolutely no idea.
