Your Love Number is


Of all the numbers, you are the most caring and empathetic lover.
Unselfish and humble, you find it easy to forgive your sweetie's mistakes.
At times, your need to please can be come a bit too needy.
As long as you remain somewhat independent, your relationships are perfectly balanced.

School this trimester is going to be intense. All of my classes are pretty cool and I have wicked awesome professors, but there is a mother load of work to be done. Like, I am not just talking easy projects that can get done in a week... I am talking 11 week long group projects. Normally, I don't mind the group work too much, but its a little tough when I commute down there. And this is in every class I take... with the exception on maybe Abnormal Psychology. But even in that I have a class projects and a paper.

I went to training this week for work because we are converting to a new system. It seems like it would be wicked easy, if I was trained this from the beginning. But where I have been using this old system we call PC Teller for like almost 4 years, I can do it in my sleep. But this new "TellerInsight" that we are using is going to be rough. Customers are not going to like us at all.

Thursday night Mike and I went to the movies and saw "Be Cool" in his new car... which he is sickly obsessed with! ;0) Friday I worked and the that night Kerith, Justin, and I went to the Cactus Club to have a mini birthday celebration for Justin's birthday. It was fun and I talked their ears off about everything under the sun. Then last night Mike and I were going to go get a few drinks in Salem somewhere but we just ended up staying in and watching Bad Boys II.

I have been craving chinese food all weekend cause my dad mentioned it on Friday and I still haven't had it yet... but I will get it. Probably not tonight cause my mom is insisting that she makes a boiled dinner tonight... even though St. Patricks day is on Thursday and she could just make it then, but its fine.

I am highly considering running to the mall to buy the 50 Cent CD. But I am really afriad that if I go to the mall I am going to want to spend more money, which is a really bad idea right now. I should even throw in some laundry. But we'll see. I have this tendancy to be lazy on Sundays.

Mood: hopeful.
Today is my last day of my vacation. I don't start classes till Tuesday, but I have to go in to work tomorrow. I did a lot of nothing on this break. It wasn't bad though, in fact I liked the break. But, it is time to get into gear again... I'm starting to feel lazy. But the things I did were fun. I spent a good amount of time watching Golden Girls and The Nanny because my sister is evil and made me watch them every single morning. Oh, and I spent a ridiculous amount of money on nothing of use. But, I didn't care because I was on vacation.

So, this weekend was pretty good. Friday night I just went over to Mike's and we watched this movie that I forget the name of but it had Leonardo DiCaprio in it and he looked like he was 10. Yesterday I spent the afternoon with Christine and we did lots of shopping. Well Christine did lots of shopping while I watched, then I bought another shirt for $1.79 and a black hoodie at Old Navy. Last night was a good time. Kim, Jena, Mike, Boud, Robin, and I went to Salem Beer Works and then went to The Dockside in Wakefield where Boud got hit on my some straight dude. It was hilarious!

I'm annoyed at the TV cause NOTHING good has been on all day. My mother is forcing me to watch these Lifetime movies, but they aren't even good ones!! Like the one thats on right now is the one with the Amish girl. I hate this one.

Alicia has been crying ALL DAY LONG! She's cute, but she's driving me mental. Reason 76,498,459,845 why I don't want children! ;0)

I wanna bake a cake. I need to learn how to cook well. I have no idea what I am gonna do when I move out of this house  because my mother still cooks for me every single night.

2.) Went swimming with Dolphins in Bermuda
3.) Met Joey MacIntyer's mom at the museum of fine arts in boston
4.) I had a job interview with WBCN and didn't show up
5.) Made out with some dude from Ireland who's name I don't remember
6.) Drove in a car with people that Danielle met that night outside of a jail to give them a ride somewhere
7.) I was involved in a drug deal while not knowing it cause I'm naive.
8.) Went to a house made of nothing but paper when I worked at the YMCA
9.) Went to a red sox game without tickets
10.) Been involved in a 5 car accident, while driving Rob's car.

If you have done one of these on the list, COMMENT!!

I haven't heard from Luke, so I decided that I'm not going to New York, and I haven't even told him this yet. But I have tried calling him 1200 times.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOLLY!!!! My birthday is 2 months from today people!!!!

I got my grades back from school. I did okay, not as good as I would have liked, but I passed everything which is good.

Hong Kong on Saturday was so much fun and I cannot wait to go back! Every time I go there its an interesting experience!

Yesterday I had lunch with Christine and Rochelle at the 99. It was tasty. Then last night I went up to Mike's and I watched/laughed at him while he was doing his laundry. We got carry out at the 99... so that was twice in one day, but I didn't mind cause I <3 the 9's for some reason. Then we watched The Object of My Affection. Which I love.

And now here I am on this Wednesday night watching Love and Basketball.

Mood: excited.
So, things are going okay. I had a rough day yesterday for some reason, leading me to be a big bitch-ola to Rob. I feel bad, cause I get that way to him sometimes... and he didn't even do anything wrong... so I don't know why I did that.

I took my little cousin Julia and my brother Jared to the mall last night. We went to the Burlington Mall where I drooled over this wicked awesome Coach bag! It's pink and so cute and $138.00. But its fine cause when I get my tax return money, I am getting that and an Ipod!

Work yesterday made me want to hang myself!

I am going to Hong Kong tonight with Joanna and Maria! This will be a good time since I haven't seen them in FOREVER and haven't been to Hong Kong in FOREVER either! I get way too excited over the $1 terriaki and test tube shots! And maybe I will run into my friend Jamal! ;0)

I decided not to get the Honda. This week on my vacation, I am gonna look around more with my dad and see what I can find.

So, I need to find Luke because he was supposed to find out about our hotel for New York, and I haven't heard from him! I'm gonna kill this kid! ;0)

I spent $50.00 last night at Old Navy. Which technically isn't a lot of money... but when your poor like I am, it is.

Also, I wicked love this Obsession song by Frankie J.

I kinda miss Nick. I don't talk to him alot, and its not like I see him all the time, but I know he is in Wisconsin and I can't see him till June or whenever it is he comes back, but when he is in New York I know that I always have the option of visiting. Its odd!

Okay, I am gonna go out with my mommy now.

As the days go on, things get more interesting in my own little world.

Took my first final today and it went not so great. I was up all night chatting and not studying which is bad. Oh well, I am glad its over.

We are saying goodbye to Brian today. It's sad. He is a little pain in the butt, but he is wicked cute.

I had to redo my entire computer last night cause something went completely crazy and so now I had to re-download everything and I lost all my cute away messages and pictures. Luckily enough I can get my pictures back, thanks to that website.

Mike made me pasta Saturday night and we watched The Notebook. It was fun! :0)

I kinda bought a new car yesterday, but not really. I haven't made up my mind or not yet if I want it. Lisa's gonna be pissed at me, but I am sorry yo, I dont have 3,000 bucks to give you up front!

I don't have to work again until Thursday, which is weird cause usually I go to school and then work, but now I am just going to school, and then having the afternoons free. I think I could get used to this! ;0)

I almost forgot that I can sell back some books. I'll be sure to do that Thursday after my second final. Not that I'll be getting amazing money or anything.

I was supposed to go out tonight with Maria, Kerith, Marisa, and Holly, but since I am a dumbass and the weekend got nutty on me I forgot that I had an assignment due tomorrow, I have to study for my exam, and I have laundry to do... I can't go out.

It's Thursday. Thank God.

I have classes tomorrow, but its not gonna be that bad. My last two classes where canceled for tomorrow and in my first two, I just have a coaching session and a presentation due. I am so psyched that another semester is done. And I will totally have my associates in Advertising Communications.

Mike is making me dinner Saturday night at his apartment. Things are going pretty well with him. I think I have better luck with guys when Lisa is out of the country! ;0)

Is it awful of me to be writing away in LJ when there are people waiting to use the computers in the computer lab? But I find that the only time I truly update is when I am at school doing nothing.

I can't even begin to describe how happy I am that my spring break is a week away. No work, no school, nobody will be home... its just grand. I am gonna try and get my butt to the gym everyday to get myself into a routine. I have to get into shape for Rachael's wedding! I mean what if there are some hot single dude's there?

I look wicked adorable today in my pink Red Sox hat that Rob gave me. Yeah, I still wear the stuff he gave me. Why the hell not, its good stuff!

But, I should go and do some more work I suppose.... I did have a lot more to say about how I am mad at my work, but I just don't feel like typing it out... call me lazy...

My Qualitative Research teacher walked into class today and said she had a migraine so she canceled class. I feel bad for her, but it was a treat! But now my next class isn't until 3.

So, this weekend was a lot of fun... even though I am now $100.00 poorer. Thanks guys for coming out for Caitlin's birthday! My favorite part of the night had to be when Justin ate some girls birthday cake!

I have been given a mother load of homework lately and I don't know when I plan on getting it all done!!!

My washing machine is broken at my house, so this means I have to take a trip to the laundry mat I think. Maybe I will bring my lap top and do homework there... but we'll see.

Tomorrow I am going to dinner with Greg at the Cheesecake Factory, so hopefully that will be a good time.

Friday night I am going to Alston to watch Boud's brother's band play! They seem really good, so that should be a fun time! If anyone wants to come, you should! Then Saturday I finally get to meet this Tom character, who I might have met before apparently cause I went to a party thrown at his house once with Maria and Christine.

So, the fun part about being an Advertising major, I HAVE to watch the Super Bowl for the commercials! It's kinda cool!

OMG! This has been the worst week! Well, not only yesterday did I drive all the way to Rhode Island to find out had not one book with me, but I got a flat tire on the ride home from work last night! BUT THEN I finally get home and I get all my assignments that are due today done, and all I have to do is print them when I get to school. What do I do, I loose my cruzer-mini!!!!!! NOT OKAY! I AM DEAD!

... But in other news, my firefighter friend came to my house and surprised visited me! That was like the only good part of my week.

Here I am on a lazy Sunday afternoon. I slept until 12:30 today! I was so psyched! I haven't been able to sleep this late in god only knows how long.

My weeks have been pretty routine lately, but I am okay with it. My weekends have been laid back and unpredictable, which I am even more happy about.

Last night I was supposed to go to Tequila Rain with Kim but due to the lack of funding, I couldn't go. But Kerith called me last night at about 7:00 and was already on her way to my house when she called me and asked if I wanted to go to this kids party from Tufts. It was fun! It wasn't any kind of a crazy college party or anything like that, but it was wicked fun! These kids are obsessed with my Uncle Chuck! I am happy that Kerith found nice dorky kids at school!

I am glad I have no school or work tomorrow, its a nice break!

My mom is making a boiled dinner tonight. I have been bad with my South Beach diet! I am going to the gym tomorrow! No buts, ands, ifs about it!

Speaking of my mother, she has been subjecting me to lifetime movies allllll day. Not even the good ones, but the weird-o hick-ville ones.

I bought new undies yesterday at Vicki's. They are crazy cute!

Kim asked me to go to a party with with her in February for a boy from UMASS! I am wicked excited because I loved partying with them! Although the kid who the party is for told me I had no personality! That bastard is going to see personality!

Brian is leaving us February 22nd. It's a little sad!

I am in such a good mood. I don't know if its because I finally realized how much fun I can really have and haven 't had in forever or if its just some random thing I am going through.

I had an absolute blast in New York this weekend and cannot wait to go back!

January 29th! Everyone be free because I am taking my sister out for her 21st birthday and everyone has to come!

Work is going along just swimmingly! I got another raise cause the bank said I don't make enough... I won't argue.

So, I went on a semi-date with a boy. He is a firefighter and lives in Wakefield and is wicked cute! Hopefully we will be hanging out this week.

School is going okay. After this semester I will FINALLY have at least my associates under my belt in Advertising Communications!

I registered for next semester. Oh, but I am mad about something with school... I am just not gonna write about it now. I am taking Abnormal Psychology, Quantitative Research, Strategic Marketing, and Public Relations Cases and Plans. It should be a good time.

How much do I love the show 'Everybody Loves Raymond'... just so funny!

Okay, I am done with this for now!

Subject:"Every night I pray that soon your face will fade away..."
Time:6:44 pm.
Mood: contemplative.
It's funny how when your a kid, you think that you really do know everything. I mean I know I always did... and to an extent I still do. You think that you know how someone feels when they do certain things or how they feel when they go through certain experiences, but you never really do. And then you think that you can somehow fix everything when stuff goes wrong, and then you finally realize that not everything is in your control! Its messed up. Like why can't things ever be as easy as it was when we were in high school. Yeah, you had the drama, but life really wasn't that hard. I always wished that I could hurry up and be an adult and be married and happy and work and no more school. But, I dont want that yet. I am not ready. I have an advantage because I am still in school, and now I am single again, and it does stink, and I really wish things could be different, because I really did love Rob. Well, I still love him, but just not in a romantical sense because I can't. But, I can't just keep looking for someone new, and I just can't sit here and sulk in my depressions of being single agian, I will go insane. But what I can do is take advantage of what I have. I am lucky I have a good family and I was never placed in a foster homes like the kids I see on a daily basis. I am lucky I have the friends I do have. I am lucky that I go to a pretty good school, and no matter how expensive it is, my parents will always find a way for me to get there. But with the new year approaching, I am pretty happy that it will be a new start. I went through a lot in 2004. I plan on going though a lot more in 2005. But ya know... its okay... things are never that bad in the end.
