It's 10:42 AM and I have class really soon but I figured I'd update real quick. Life's been good this past week. I don't have any exams for another 2 weeks which makes me happy since I can just chill out for a bit. We have Monday off for Columbus Day but I'm actually staying. It's going to be scary this weekend as I'll be the only person out of nine who is staying in the dorm.

Off topic, but I'm going to Kelly Clarkson concert on the 18th and I am SO excited. I've been waiting to see her for so long and I'm really glad she's coming to a smaller venue this year as opposed to the giant stadiums with 13095810958 people. I wonder what her set list is...hopefully it is includes songs from her 2 previous album, Thankful and Breakaway.

I hope you have a good day and I might update later this weekend, depending.

Hey guys. I know it's been awhile since I've posted, but I've been lazy i suppose? But i'm trying to update this thing more frequently. I'm actually working at the library right now, where I get paid to just sit and study..but instead I go on LJ haha. Anyway, life has been interesting as of lately. I'm in my first semester of 2nd year and so far it's going all right. I'm having a half decent week so far, the first half being crappy due to me bombing my first anatomy exam...I just ran out of time but whatever I'll get em next time? *sigh* There's so much work to do here. Thank god for Grey's Anatomy though. I've been waiting for the season premiere for months..bascially since the finale of last season lol. How i love grey's though...seriously. I couldn't have asked for more from last nights episode. It was CLASSIC greys, witty, fun, and humorous. I am so glad Mer/Der are back on, although I am a little disappointed Shonda is doing the "see saw" thing. But whatever, they're together so I'm happy! I absolutely love Izzie for reviving the deer too. That was probably the funniest scene all night lol. And I absolutely love..love the mark and derek friendship! i found derek's speech to be cute. most guys don't defend their girls but he did and i just found it heartwarmng for derek to defend meredith like that. mcdreamy = <3 (i'm such a fangirl at heart) haha i can't say i like the gizzie ship though (george and izzie) but it was cute, although george IS cheating on callie. i stillthink alex and izzie need to be together but we'll see?

anyway, i've been addicted to a band called RILO KILEY. if anyone has not heard their latest album, silver lining, you should all buy it, download it, whatever. IT'S SO GOOD!! and i've been listening to it non stop. They were actually here in Philly on Tuesday but i couldn't go because of the stinker exam. >.< i still love the album. everyone should listen to the songs - silver lining, dreamworld, and close call. :D

yay for me updating =)

Hey everyone. I really doubt anyone reads my journal but for anyone who stops by, welcome. Winter break was way too short, although I probably shouldn't be saying that because I did have an entire month off. It went by rather quickly though and I wish I was still at home, doing nothing - sleeping and other useless crap like that lol. It's good to be back at uni I guess. Classes started Monday on Martin Luther King Day which I think is stupid because it's a national holiday. We should be honoring MLK!! Since I got back, I went and drop/added some courses so now my schedule is a LOT better. Now it's so that I have 2 classes in the morning and then huge gap, and 2 classes in the afternoon. I used to have chem at 6:30 at night but I hated the time slot so I switched to the 4:00 chem class. The teacher isn't as good but honestly, chemistry is just chemistry, teacher doesn't really matter cuz half the time i don't understand the material first time around in class. I usually end up learning the stuff myself. I'm really hoping for a better semester so cross your fingers!! I gotta say I have a good feeling this time around ^_^

In other news, I went to Taiwan during the break. I went with my family to visit some relatives. It was fun but I didn't come at the best time because right now, everyone in Taiwan is really busy - you know taking finals because our Christmas is like their Chinese New Years vacation which is coming up. So, when i went back, my cousins were busy studying for exams. Therefore, they didn't have as much time to show me around. However, I did go to a few places. My aunt took me to Taipei 101, the tallest building in the country. It took about 44 seconds to go up 85 floors!! And the view up their is absolutely fantastic. Went to the zoo as well, although my grandparents didn't have enough energy to walk around so we ended up not seeing as many animals. My favorite was probably the flamingos and the parrots =) There were koalas as well but they were all sleeping when we saw them so we didn't have a good look at them. heh there was a group of hippos sleeping too...i guess i went to the zoo at "nap time" so to speak. Overall I had a good time in Taiwan. My only complaint about the city is that it's WAY too crowded and the pollution is so bad. A lot of people wear masks to covering their mouths when they go out to prevent from getting sick. But yeah, it's even more crowded than NYC which I didn't think was possible lol Everyone there has a scooter, which is really cool. I actually got to ride on one!! They're so cute lol

Well, this has definitely, by far, been my longest LJ entry. What a way to start the new year i suppose. I'm hopin to make more updates to this journal. Talk to you all later!

-New layout!! Big thanks to reversescollide and christpherr I love it!
-I finally got my cell phone this week!! Originally, I was going to get a regular flip phone since it’s cheaper but apparently the razrs came with our family plan. So I decided on a black razr and did I mention it's really addictive? lol
- Started packing for college yesterday and seriously, not fun >.< It’s really crazy that I’m leaving next Friday. I mean is the summer over already?!! It needs to be extended because I like sleeping lmao
-Last night on Rockstar, Zayra got the boot. I think her elimination was several weeks overdue but at least Supernova was smart enough to finally send her packing. She can’t sing so I’m really really glad she’s gone
-At BCF (blend challenge forums), I got promoted to staff! I am the new co-director of the photography challenges!! I’m so honored to get this position, really came as a huge surprise so I am definitely looking forward to this ^_^

And finally in reply to savannahblue's interview questions...

1. Okay so I know you're a HUGE Grey's Anatomy fan, so which episode or moment has been your favorite in the past 2 seasons?
That’s definitely a tough question. I absolutely love every episode, moment, just everything about Grey’s. I really liked the code black episode and the season 2 finale though . Then for favorite moments, I’m gonna have to go with any Mer/Der moment, but especially the scene during the s2 finale where Meredith is just standing by the elevator, trying to choose between Derek and Finn. So angsty heh <3

2. Favorite Carrie Underwood song?
Jesus Take the Wheel, I love that entire cd!

3. What has been your favorite part of this summer?
Sleeping!!And just hanging out with friends, relaxing ^_^

4. What was the weirdest dream you've ever had?
I don’t remember my dreams =( or at least none of them have been weird haha

5. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry – impossible to pick one =)

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."

2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.

3. You will update your journal with the answers to the questions.

4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.

5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

So on Big Brother tonight, Janelle proved that she’s here to stay. I’m so proud of her for winning the veto! Heh the veto was pretty crazy this time too – the prizes were friggin sweet!! Plasma TV, $5,000, free slop pass, trip to Aruba? I’m kinda disappointed in Marcellas though, for not trying a lil harder to help Janelle. Meh, what do you expect – everyone’s a greedy bish haha Boogie and Will never cease to crack me up lmao I felt really bad for Dani though, poor girl was put into a 24 hour solitary confinement. Eh, and although I don’t approve of her veto replacement she gets my respect for being so bold. James vs. Kaysar?!! :o For me, that’s an easy decision since I love Kaysar and James has been nothing but a snake, going back on the s6 alliance. Yeah, so I really do hope he gets evicted this week.

Rock Star Supernova was amazing tonight, probably one of the better episodes this season. Some of my thoughts on the performances:

Dilana – I loved Gilby’s comment “After that I have no doubt in my mind that a woman can front Supernova!” I totally agree with that simply because Dilana rocks!

Ryan – Wow I’m getting more and more impressed every week. The intro with the costume was hot, and yeah I loved his performance this week. Definitely a contender now ^_^

Jill – I liked it but I don’t think it’ll be good enough to keep her out of the B3. She just lacks something, can’t really pin point it.

Zayra – Um, yeah so I really don’t understand how she’s still here? I really do appreciate her creativeness and performance skills but omg she seriously can’t sing.  If she doesn’t leave this week, supernova has some problems lol

Storm – She totally did that Queen song justice. She’d be a great fit for the band plus she’d keep Tommy entertained if you know what I mean haha

Patrice – meh she needs to go too. I don’t see any star quality in her at all, though the vocals were all right.

Josh – whooaa I love STP and interstate love song. He definitely did a kickass version, esp with Tommy rockin it on drums

Toby – This guy is such a great fit for the band. I loved the performance tonight and the megaphone was cool too. Great voice and really easy on the eyes <3

Lukas – loved it this week, he actually SANG for once lol

This week went by extremely quickly and I didn’t even do that much, lol! Work was all right, same old stuff. I’ve been workin at a nursing home, doing food service for the summer. So, yesterday me and my co-worker, Venus, were walking down the hall to deliver a food tray. Outta nowhere, a nurse starts screaming at and calls her a “fat, lazy white b*itch.” I was so incredibly appalled by the nurse’s behavior…not only was it rude but I just lost complete respect for that nurse. She thinks she’s so much better than the kitchen staff and can boss everyone around? Bleh, very upsetting so yeah my friend’s definitely putting in a complaint to our manager. Anyway, my last day there will be next Sunday, No more food service!! lol – I’m gonna try and get a different job next summer :P

Big Brother was really interesting tonight. Danielle won HOH and had the guts to put up 2 people from S6: Janelle and James. Obviously, the Janelle nom was really obvious since everyone in the house was mad at her for not putting Boggie and Will up. I really don’t like the way James is playing the game right now. He’s totally backdooring S6 right now and it’s really not cool! He agreed to be put up as a pawn this week so it doesn’t seem like Dani and James are close. Pretty smart, but very sneaky on James’s part. Playin this way is gonna bite him in the ass though. Apparently Janelle wins veto so if Dani puts up someone from S6, it’ll probably be Howie. :(

I had my 2nd wisdom tooth removed yesterday morning. The actual procedure was fairly short and I didn’t feel a thing because of the anesthesia. BUT it hurt like hell afterwards. The entire left side of my face was still numb and it felt really weird. Anyway, a few hours later, the real pain started to kick in. It got so bad I had to take an Advil for it. Oh well, I’m just glad I have no more wisdom teeth that need to be yanked so yay for that!!

Sooo, I still need a bunch of stuff for my dorm room. Nidhi’s bringing a fridge so we’re not gonna rent a microfridge. I figure, if I need food heated up I’ll just go to someone down the hall who has a microwave or something. I mean it is a lot easier and saves me 170 bucks :P The biggest problem I have right now is figuring out whether or not I want to bring my desktop to college. My computer’s my baby…no doubt but it’s just so heavy. The monitor, especially will be a bitch to carry up four flights of stairs. I can’t believe they don’t have an elevator lol It would make things so much easier but I figure I have two options. 1. I could bring my desktop computer and just get a flat screen monitor or 2. I could buy a laptop and just bring that….I dunno, what would you guys do? I kinda want both lol

Moving on to a different subject, I tried out a pilates class yesterday, although it was way more intense than I thought. The positions were crazzzyy and I couldn’t even do some of them since I’m really not that flexible. Every time I move now something new hurts. The soreness sucks >.< but hopefully it’ll hurt less once my body gets used to the workout.

I suppose this is my first "real" journal entry since the last one was barely a few sentences. Well, first off I finally got my LJ layout working!! I'm using one of Tasha's beautiful layouts, which I would like to thank her for. It's absolutely gorgeous and I couldn't help NOT to use it. I, however had some trouble with putting up the layout. I followed all the directions and stuff but the layout still looked funkeh, like everything was out of place and didn't line up. Well, apparently I had a plus LJ account and the layout only worked for free accounts. So, I switched back to basic and voila the layout finally looked normal lol

I'm starting college really soon at USP and I'm extremely excited…although it scares me that I’ll be away from my family because I’ve never really left home before. I dunno really, I’m glad I’m moving away from my parents, gaining some independence and stuff but I know that in a few months, I’ll be missing home like crazy. No more home cooked meals or quietness -_- lol Thank god the school’s only about a 90 min ride from home, so I’ll probably go home now and then when I get the opportunity. School starts on the 28th, move in is the 25th so it’s pretty early for me at least. I’ve always started school in September so this is extremely early, especially since most of my friends are staying here in Jersey and the colleges here don’t start until September. We do get out the first week of May, which is pretty awesome! Definitely looking forward to that ^_^

I’ve been waiting for my roommate info for the longest time. Thank god it finally came in the mail today lol I was really expecting my roommate to be some random stranger, whose name I wouldn’t have a clue to pronounce…but it’s actually someone I already know! She actually lives in the next town over and knows a lot of my friends surprisingly hehe I never would have expected her to be my roommate but I’m really glad she is. We talked on aim, to see who’s bringing what and I really feel like we connected. I definitely think we’ll get along really well :D
