awkward conversations [24 Aug 2005|11:33pm]
My new puppy's name is Willow.  She's a caramel and white colored Shiba Inu and she's beautiful.  I've already taught her how to sit, shake, and lie down.  She's very smart.  Oh, and also... she's electronic.

Not feeling the love right now.

Someone please buy me an original Polaroid SX 70 Land Camera.  They're only about $50-$100ish on ebay. 



I'd buy one myself, but I'm sorta saving up for a hedgehog. God, what a hard decision.

Well I've now written out two long journal entires. The first one was rather harsh, due to my irrationality and impulsive nature. The second was more calm and sensible. But instead I decided to say nothing. I don't even want to look at another journal, even the ones that don't make me feel like shit. So I will no longer be looking.

I can't make everyone in the world happy. I don't want to. Right now, I'm just going to concentrate on me, and what I want to do. Because I'm the only person I have control over.

Hot Fudge Sundaes [27 Jul 2004|01:11am]
[ mood | lucky ]

Well this update is coming a little late. I meant to post it on Saturday. But since he's been home, I haven't found the time to do it. At any rate, I did it. I went an entire week without Josh. I'd never gone more than a day or two without him for about six months, so I deemed the feat impossible. Life without Josh is, first of all, boring. It's also lonely, quiet, cold, and depressing. Needless to say, I missed him terribly. But I did get to do things that I don't usually do with him, or just don't have the time to. I mean, I finished two books within 32 hours of his departure.

I hope I never have to do it again. I don't want to go anywhere without him. It's times like these where I wish Josh and I went to the same school. School is bad enough as it is, but it's just another reminder that Josh and I aren't going to be together all the time. I just need to not take summer for granted.

I want to go to the zoo soon. Anyone care to join?

I Love Pickle [21 Jul 2004|11:50am]
[ mood | tired ]

Saturday: was an incredibly hard day. I finished Pet Sematary and then Chris and I hung out; we went to Best Buy and JoAnn Fabrics. We also got pizza from Papa John's and lots of candy from Sugar Buzz. While eating we watched Jurassic Park. It was really fun but I didn't really get a lot of sleep the nite before. And Saturday nite wasn't a lot better. I cried a lot.

Sunday: I barely even left bed. I read an entire book, Dead Until Dark I believe it was called. It's about a waitress who falls in love with a vampire. I loved it, but it made me miss Josh even more. And then Jon took MY car to Ann Arbor because the Caddy is broken.

Monday: was a lot of fun. My mom and I went down to Somerset after her dentist appointment in Royal Oak. I started reading Interview With The Vampire while she was at the dentist. I got some really cool things at the mall. The best part was I didn't have to pay for any of it. Unfortunately, Josh used his one-call-per-day while we were driving home so we didn't really get to talk :[ I guess I shouldn't have spent all of Sunday in bed because my legs absolutely killed after walking all day. Oh, and when we got home, we went back out about an hour later to Genesee Valley because I wanted a denim skirt. But on Bristol Road a little kitten was on the side of the road. It was alive and a woman stopped to pick it up but couldn't reach it. My mom and I stopped because I wanted to take it home but we couldn't find it.

Tuesday: was really awesome. Gretchen, Alyssa, and I went to see The Notebook. This is a great movie, but it's so sad. It was a bad movie to see without Josh, but I'm really glad we went. I really miss him, but the girls made yesterday fun. I'm glad I can count on them. I also sold my drum set to Zack Hendrickson's little brother, Seth. Now I actually have some money! Tuesday nite was a little iffy. I ended up watching an hour of Sex and the City on tbs while trying to finish one of Josh's presents. It didn't happen.

Today I'm going to read a lot and try to finish Josh's present. I think I might also draw a little. After today, there's only two more days before Josh gets home. I can't wait for Saturday to come.

DREAM ABOUT ME [16 Jul 2004|11:44pm]
[ mood | sad ]

Today Josh, Andy, and I went to The Town Red and painted pottery. Josh and I both choose a little box w/ lid to paint and Andy choose a vase which I later saw labled as a pencil holder...? Anyway, Josh painted his w/ an octopus which turned out surprisingly awesome and I painted a city landscape across all four sides. The sky on each side turns from midday to sunset to nite to sunrise. Josh, I really want to switch. I'm giving you mine regardless. It was really fun, but we stayed an hour after they closed. I felt bad but it was relaxing. Then we went to Josh's and ate Macaroni & Cheese and asparagus. Soo good. Oh and Healthy Choice Peanut Butter Cup ice cream while watching Ghost World. That...is a very good movie. I recommend it to all.

I had a big paragraph written out but I realized I don't want everyone to know what it said. I'm just really going to miss Josh. I can't wait for you to come home, Pickle.

Happiness is a Warm Gun [11 Jul 2004|12:33pm]
[ mood | sore ]

Thursday: I finally got a car. It's a 2000 dark red Ford Taurus. I've never really liked the way Tauruses looked and I don't really like the color, but I really don't care because it's a car. But I love the inside. It's huge... ;]  But more importanly, Thursday was GIRLS' NITE!! It was so much fun, but we did eat really badly. However, I weighed myself the next day and I didn't gain any weight. I'm really glad I have such awesome girl friends. Guys are great but you really have to have the girls too. And we really need to plan that fancy dinner thing. It sounds like so much fun.

Friday: was spent driving all over with my mom. We had to go to Secretary of State and the guy's house who we bought the car from and back and forth until finally the car was mine. Then I hung out with Josh :] We wanted to go the 545 showing of Anchorman and I wanted to drive. But my mom told me I couldn't take the expressway so it took 40 minutes to get to the West and it was 6 o'clock when we got there. The next showing wasn't until 725 which sucks even more because we had to pay $2.50 more each. We went to Best Buy, bought a CD visor thing for my car [even though it doesn't have a CD player yet] and played the Shrek 2 game which was surprisingly fun. Unfortunately I was extremely tired that nite since I had only gotten about 5 hours of sleep the nite before. We ended the nite watching some Season 4 Simpsons.

Saturday: I could write a book. Saturday was a very stressful day and I really don't want to go in detail about it. It ended up being a pretty fun day. Probably the best part was meeting Brad and Melissa. And it's always good to see Dan.

Augh, I'm sorry. This post was really boring. I wrote a whole paragraph about movie times. Oh well.

I don't know but I've been told... [05 Jul 2004|02:10am]
[ mood | peaceful ]

My Fourth of July:

I woke up around noon because I had stayed up until 3 the nite before. Then I watched a few hours of Twilight Zone. The main point of this is I didn't do anything Fourth of July-esque all day. The majority of today was spent waiting for Josh to come home. He came a little after 1030 pm and I was ecstatic since he had been gone the nite before and I had hung out with Andy, Mike, and Chris. I missed him so much.

In addition to this, I had to give him his anniversary present. 4 months on the 2nd. Technically. I want to post a picture of it but I can't right now so I'll just describe it. I had a picture of us that we had taken on my digital camera enlarged and changed to black and white using a photoshoppe booth thing before printing it. Then I had a picture mat instead of a frame. I covered the mat with paper and wrote lots lyrics from Josh's favorite CD aka the first Modest Mouse CD that either of us had heard [at different times of course]. I also glued on a picture of a really cool tree I had drawn in Bio and was planning on giving to him anyway among other little designs. Personally I felt this anniversary gift was very unique and creative and perfect for Josh. I know that sounds egotistical but I'm really proud of the way it turned out and I worked really hard on it. I hope he loved it. I almost forgot! Once we got to his house, Josh gave me this beautiful bracelet he had gotten for me. It looks really old-fashioned and everything. It has great colors, I really like it.

Tonite Josh, once again, showed me much he respects and loves me in another way. I could not be happier with my life right now. Josh is the most amazing, incredible, caring person I've ever met. It's so awesome to have fallen in love with my best friend.

[ mood | happy ]

Yesterday was a really great wonderful fantastic amazing day. It all started when Andy called me around 2ish in the afternoon. He and I and Josh then went to Wendy's for Andy and then Roly Poly's for Josh and me. Following this, we went back to my house and played Super Smash Bros Melee on GameCube. Then Andy left.

Around 6 Josh and I picked up Zach and then Andy and Naia to go to Tastefest!! On the expressway, this blue Grand Am passed us with 4 guys inside. During this passing, they all turned and stared at us. I told Josh to speed up so we could do the same to them. He was really uncool about it but eventually did it. I felt so cool. So, a little later, they catch up with us again and proceed to pass us. But this time...they totally mooned us!! And gave us the finger. We got owned, but it was really funny and we were all laughing.

We met up at Nick's house and then went to Tastefest. Immediately upon arriving there, we joined the crowd around Cake. Eventually we ended up fairly close to the stage. I couldn't really see anything but I didn't really care because I'm not a Cake fan. Josh totally dance-raped me though. And there was this guy behind me who kept bumping into me and singing really obnoxiously loud and saying things like "Play more songs!!" and "Good job!!".

Oh wait, that was Josh. I love you Josh. I had a great time.

After this we went to National Coney Island because we were starving and the food's really expensive at Tastefest. On the way home, we listened to scary Godspeed music and told scary stories. It was scary. I was scared.

So I had a great time and I'm really glad we all went. And this morning Josh got Modest Mouse tickets!! I'm psyched. Today is going to be a good day...

I was really sick today. I've had this awful runny nose and it won't go away. And because of this, I'm angry at Josh. But not really.

Tonite we went down to Royal Oak-ish and hung out w/ Dan. We went out to eat and saw Dawn of the Dead for only a dollar each. Then we chilled at his place and I played w/ his kitten. Since we couldn't find Scrabble, we played Avalanche. The Parker Bros definitely need to bring this game back. It's amazing.

I had an absolutely fantastic nite. I really like Dan and I'm glad I went. He made me feel really good about a lot of things [ex. college, cars, my family]. I really liked talking to him. I'm glad Josh has such hip friends.

The nite ended...perfectly. I love Josh. And I'm more excited than ever for Tastefest.

and I think to myself... [24 Jun 2004|12:24am]







Tonite was awesome. Josh and I went out to dinner w/ David and Karthik and it was really fun. I'm really glad we went, knowing that there probably wouldn't be any of our other friends there. We should do it again.

Tomorrow = A^2 / me missing Josh

but I can't wait for Friday :] aka Big Fancy Date Day!!!

give me a beat [21 Jun 2004|01:09am]
Tonite was the Prince concert. I think the majority of its coolness existed simply because it was Prince. He did all my favorite songs though, but only part of I Would Die 4 U so I was a little disappointed. I think the best part was when he did an acoustic version of Little Red Corvette. Although he did have people on-stage w/ him @ one point and they were all really thin and young except one really heavy black woman. She could've eaten him. I got a hot shirt.

Tomorrow is shopping w/ the girls and I couldn't be more excited. I am pumped.

I currently have 2 incredibly large pet peeves.

1] People who think that they're too good for U of M and that it would be absolutely terrible to attend it. "Ohhh, I'm stuck going to University of Michigan! Shoot me now! I wanna go to an out of state private college and get a major in something completely worthless that I'll never be able to get a job with. Not U of M!!! Kill me now!" Note: although I would love to go to school in New York or Chicago, it's not just because I would hate to go to U of M aka one of the best colleges in the country.

2] People who use "omg" regularly. Not only on-line, but also in verbal speech. But even worse than this is using "oh em gee." OMG GROW UP. Please.

Last nite was pretty wicked. After Chris's graduation thing at Little Joe's, we went to Borders. [We = me, Josh, Katie & Kristen Hendricks, and Katie Payne] That was awesome. It's great to expand your horizons and hang out w/ different people who actually want to be w/ you. Katie H bought The Shins, a very good CD. I bought The Postal Service and Psycho w/ my mom's money and I'm very happy w/ my decision. I really like the TPS CD.

Afterwards Josh and I came back here and he finished my very beautiful picture. I'm going to hang it on the wall next to my other one. While he did this, I read Pet Semetery and listened to TPS. It was just a great nite. I couldn't have asked for anything better. 

Tonite we're seeing The Terminal w/ Tom Hanks. I'm excited.

Yesterday was pretty rad. Josh and I saw Coffee and Cigarettes with Jacob and Dan. It's always cool to hang out with them. The movie was pretty good too.

Last nite Josh and I played the Pink Panther game. It's kind of complicated but it's a really fun game. I want to play it again.

I really don't have anything to write about.

Tomorrow nite, I'm excited. I haven't hung out w/ you guys in awhile. I can't wait.

[ mood | blah ]

I got my license yesterday! Now all I need is a car.

I really need to spend some time with Allison and Alyssa. Badly. I definitely need some girl time.

It does not feel like summer at all. I really want it to kick in.

Edit: I wish everything was perfect again. I wish I didn't feel like everything is my fault.

Everything will work out in the end.
