I had another super long week last week. I got my sociology paper finished, 3 memos completed, 1 case write up, and took my accounting exam. Oh yea, not to mention the 11 hours I spent grading accounting exams at $15/hr. Awesome.
This weekend was great. I vegged out. Thursday night, I went to Dan's artshow, which was fucking amazing. I can't begin to explain it, but the tshirts as a mural on the wall aspect was awesome.
Friday- I graded exams!
Saturday- A fun team meeting and I went to Haymarket and bought some fruit. I picked up some Chinese, cleaned the kitchen, and did some laundry.
Sunday- Finished grading exams! Got a $180 check! sweet. I went to the grocery store and proceeded to cave in and buy a pumpkin pie. Dammit. Yes, by this morning, I had already eated half of it. hah
I talked to Daddy on the phone in Miami. I kinda miss the family right now, and I am counting down until CHristmas and when I can see Georgio!! Oh, I guess Jinkie and the family as well.
Thursday, I am going to Jane's friend's condo for Thanksgiving. haha. Awesome.

i just had the most amazing conversation with jeff tonight. I can't believe how nice it was to talk to him and remember old times from Freshman year - from the good to the bad times. We promised to meet up after Thanksgiving and hang out.
Thanks for cheering me up Jeffie! <3

Well, let's see....
My accounting exam went ok on Monday...fuck, I'm going to get the grade back tomorrow. Oh well. I finished that exam Monday night at 8:15pm - and, of course, I was freaking out about my Hospitality exam the next morning. Needless to say, I got very little sleep, and I didnt go to bed until about 1:30am with an 8am class! The hospitality exam was a breeze, and I'm beginning to think that there is something about going to an exam without the ability to clearly think. People were asking me what WBR meant on the written portion- and I had no idea. I was so tired that I overlooked that completely and just assumed what it had meant. haha. Anyway, turns out I got 98%, and then the prof. gave everyone 2% extra - so I got 100%. Sweet.
I watched this Enron movie, The Smartest Guys in the Room, on Thursday night for my strategy and policy class. I really made me mad, partially because I was a little too young to understand Enron at the time it all happened, and partially because I didn't realize that they were responsible for a lot of what happened in California and Nevada. Bastards. Lay got off easy by dying before he went to jail. I hope Skilling rots for those 24 years in jail.
I went to the BU - UMASS-Lowell hockey game on Friday night. I actually had a decent seat to the left of the goalie, and with the way that BU was playing, I saw some sad goals go in. Oh well. 2-1 isn't tooooo bad. Seriously though, we were bad enough to lose to Northeastern. Kellie, Diane, and I went out to T. Anthony's after, and we devoured a pizza, all while I had a flirting contest with this guy across from us. Oh, the fun I have.
Yesterday, James called at 9:30am, but I forgave him and we had a lovely talk anyway. Later on, Diane and I went to the gym and met up with Kim after. We ate at T. Anthony's again (but only because the rain was flooding the streets and anywhere else was too much of a commitment). I saw Justin there, so I ducked away. Rain, gym clothes, gym smell, and a saturday of slacking off doesn't look pretty - you get the picture. After, we went grocery shopping (yet, another fun fact and duty of living in an apartment), and I bought some odds and ends so I can live for the week.
I watched the premiere of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban on ABC. Y'know, that movie isn't half bad. I really enjoyed watching it again after about a year. I should watch the Goblet of Fire sometime.
I'm doing some dreadful accounting homework right now, and I am preparing for the 3*********** midterms I have between Thursday morning and Friday morning. Oh joy.
||[21 Oct 2006|06:22pm]
Well, the end of the week went better than the beginning. Ami and I got a 99% on our excel homework - which I am damn proud about! I mean, it's SHA and all, but an A+ is an A+.
Last night, Dan, Jess and I went to Jim's apartment and carved pumpkins! Yay. I made a kitty cat, Jess made a pumpkin with no nose, and Dan sketched Jerry Orbach from Law and Order...LoL yea, seriously. It was pretty awesome.
Anyway, I'm just studying accounting tonight, and I can't wait for the Regatta tomorrow morning (a huge tradition in Boston that BU puts on with sailboats) and potentially seeing the Prestige tomorrow night (now that the Loew's is a Regal cinema- and I have a free pass for that).
This weekend has definitely put me in a better mood. Mind you, I'm still not happy about some things - and my patience is wearing thin.
||[09 Sep 2006|08:49pm]
I'm back at school, and I love my apartment. It's really nice and comfy. Anyway, Jess and I are having a blast and we are fitting in with our other roomies!
I'm happy to report that James and I are attempting to fill out an application for UNLV. excellent. I can't even begin to describe how happy I am and how much I am hoping that this all works out. We'll see though.
Classes have gone well so far. I like 3 out of the 5 - so not too bad.
||[05 Aug 2006|06:49pm]
Well, it's been awhile since I updated, but today's been a good day.
I went to the Apple store to get my Ipod fixed, and the guy ended up being able to save ALL of my music! sweet!
Then I went to Circuit City to bitch about my non-working, crappy-ass IPOD, and the guy didn't even look at it and then gave me a number to call. Apparently I send it in, and I get a gift certificate for the full amount that I originally paid for the IPOD. Excellent! My parents paid $399 plus tax, and that is exactly how much a 60 gig video IPOD is. Muah haha. Now I just need some new speakers and a cover for it.
Awesome day. Thank you Apple.
||[14 Jul 2006|08:37pm]
I've been in a great mood for the past few days. Honestly, I thought I wouldn't recover for awhile because of Sunday and James, but I'm doing quite nicely.
Tarrie basically asked me to work for the rest of the summer after my internship, but I had to decline. I need rest and I really really really need to see James. She wanted to know about my future plans after BU, etc. Yay!
Bill is amazing and has helped me out sooo much with James. I know it's terrible to talk to another boy about your "boyfriend," but because I can't be with James as much as I would want, it's almost like I'm there. It's really dreadful being so far away from him.
I have such a busy two weeks ahead of me. This project really sucks and I need a break from my summer break. LoL PLEASE let my Ipod be ok.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!!
I am officially a senior in college. Damn time flies. Anyway, I finished my finals and have gotten three of my grades back so far (B Geography, B Law, A Hospitality) - and I qualify for the Dean's list so far... crazy. However, don't worry - that will never happen. My accounting grade will never be a B+ and Seltz is evil.
Diane and I went to Fajitas and Ritas today to celebrate her graduation and my 21st. Sadly, the lady asked for Diane's ID so there was no chance of me getting a margarita. 11 days dammit.
We packed all of my crap and some of Diane's and drove over to the storage unit. Thank god it wasn't as hectic as last year. Bless my boss for letting me borrow her car to move everything.
8 days, 3 hours, 17min until the guys are here to celebrate!!
||[28 Apr 2006|06:01pm]
So.... classes are over, the sun is out, and I have a job. Yes!
MGM internship came through, so I am making $10 per hour and working indoors.
Classes finished, and I hope to get some decent grades in atleast Hospitality and maybe Law. Hospitality will definitely be an A.
Party plans are beginning to unfold. I think I'm going to book the Monte Carlo for four night, that way we can all frolic around the strip. The BBQ portion is setting up nicely, and hopefully some of my friends will be abe to come.
PS. My hair looks hot. I got it trimmed and high lighted
||[22 Apr 2006|04:26pm]
So, Easter was cool. Jess' family is really nice, and dinnertime is hilarious. We dyed Easter Eggs and hid some plastic ones for Jess' family and their friends. I am completely in love with Jess's cat, Ariel. She totally knows that I'm a cat person, so she sleep with me and followed me around the house! awe.
Anyway, classes are going ok. One week left, so I'm really anxious to go home after finals.
Diane, Kim, and I are going to Fajitas and Rita's tonight, so maybe I'll eat a decent meal. haha
||[01 Apr 2006|09:06pm]
today was ok.
