Hey this actually semi-important   
11:28pm 17/07/2005
  Hey all,

This journal has been alive for a long time. I have had at all throughout highschool, and it chronicles my really obnoxious adventures and rants from highschool. Now that I'm going on to college, I've decided to make a new lj. I know that this is probably really annoying to some of you guys, but I really just feel like the time is ripe for a new lj. If you're interested in being friended on the new lj, please just comment here. I'm going to be keeping ab_sama around for nostalgia's sake, and I might even revert it to a community's journal, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to privatize all the old entries and I'm definitely sure that I'm not going to be posting in it anymore. I know that I haven't been an active poster for the last month in this journal, but I'm going to try fairly hard to stay constant in my new journal. So if you're interested, please just comment and I'll be happy to friend you.

  if I walk around looking mostly transparent, you can all blame it on Harry Potter.

  oddrid is a bitch and is making me do this

List 5 reasons why you are a dork. And make them good reasons. Justify them. Explain them. Be loud and proud about how big of a dork you are! Then pick the 5 biggest dorks you know and have them do the meme.

1.) I've read the Harry Potter series about ten times. I just like it. I think it's a great series--I also enjoy quite a few other young adult series--His Dark Materials, Chronicles of Narnia, and that Alexander Lloyd series that starts with The Book of Three. While those are all pretty classy, when I get bored at work, I read really trashy children's series books too.

2.) I'm obsessed with Jeff Corwin and I love animals. I love animals a lot, and really, there's just no reason not to. I like strange animals in particular, so that makes me more dorky. Oh, and if you've ever seen Jeff Corwin, then you know why I'm a fag for liking him.

3.) Instead of playing video games, I watch other people play video games. And I get involved in the stories. Pretty pathetic.

4.) I own a ferret. And she's adorable.

5.) I love roleplaying. Online, in person, pretty much all of it.

mood: sore throat
Today is a work day which would be fine except that my throat is killing me. I think it must be allergy related, because I feel fine otherwise. Except my jaw, which has been hurting me for a while and I dont really know what to do about it. oh well.

I've finished one journal as a graduation present and I have three more to go. Only issue is that they need to be finished by Wednsday pretty much and I don't have a lot of time to make them because I'm working today, tomorrow, going to Atlanta this weekend. So Monday and Tuesday will be crunch days I suppose.

Marielle, a German girl who I've known for ever, is in town so we've been hanging out a little bit. I'm going to try to have dinner with her tonight.

I went to the zoo, I think I mentioned that earlier, and it was wonderful. They have baby lion cubs. I'm up for zooing again with anyone who wants to.

I think I need a shower before heading off to work. and some medicine.

  I'm spending a day with mom. we just got back from breakfast and are now going for a walk on the mountain. Then I think we will go to the zoo until japanese class, and then she will make me look pretty for FAC graduation.

This is it. After this day I officialy am done with Fine Arts Center creative writing.

I wonder what I'll be like tonight.

Pretty much a freeday. I'm still going to FAC, but just to read Tale of Genji and talk to Mr. Campbell about book-binding. I want him to be my sensei.

I have to study a bit for the spanish exam tomorrow, but what I really want to do is play resident evil 4 or watch a scary movie.

seriously guys, I have 4 days of school left. how fucking crazy is that?

I had a weird FAC dream. Something about a book counting committee. I was very angry in it, so I think I channeled some of the excess resentment and aggression into that dream.

When I learn to bind books properly, I'm going to make a dream journal for myself and maybe even try my hand at analyzing them.

Time to go pick up Romana.

So, while I have talked to Simon from Open Book, I've also gone out and applied for two more jobs in case the hours situations can't be resolved at The Open Book. My two ideal options are (I think):

1.) to work at both Carolina Pets and The Open book part-time, getting about 15-20 hours a week from each store.

2.) to work solely at Tsunami with a 30+ hour week.

Or maybe it will work out at The Open Book that I can get at least 30 hrs a week. Or maybe Carolina Pets would want to hire me more full time. So many possibilities.

Inculding the possibility that Carolina Pets and Tsunami won't even want to hire me.

I think I'd like to work at Tsunami the most, but I also think it would be the hardest and the most draining, so I'm kind of nervous about it.

Today is raining but I really want to play frisbee or tennis or something.

Oh, I watched House of Wax, which was good and scary, and most of the original Amnityville Horror which was lame but at the same time a little freaky. After that, John, Lindsay, Kyle, Sarah, and Romana and I stayed up talked about ghosts, scary dreams, etc. it was very fun.

Today we might watch The Grudge which will probably be too scary for me and make me cry.

Oh, and I found the girl I want to be my roommate. Her name is Tara and she seems really cool, although I need to ask her how she feels about posters..

Ok, I think I'll go read DNAngel and wait for everyone else to wake up.

I wish I could skip on senior skip day.

I have stuff that I have to do but don't want to do.

For example:

1.) Convince Ms. Beachem not to fail me.
2.) Clean up the pictures and paper that sukie knocked around on to the floor
3.) Finish my portfolio
4.) Read about 800 pages in Tale of Genji by tuesday.
5.) Study for all my finals. Oh man, I realized I do not have to go to school monday. My first final just suddenly changed to Spanish on Tuesday. And then Physics on Wed. And then Gov. on Thursday.
6.)I should finish all those sheets Ms. Garrison gave us.
7.) I should get the vaccum out of my room.

So I should take a shower. And maybe work on the whole organize my room thing.

Everything is running a little more smoothly in my life than I thought it would. However, I'm still a little worried about finding my books and absences. But we will just see.

  I really just want to leave now.

So, I'm getting really excited about going to Bard--I was walking to Sarah's house and I just sort of squealed suddenly and jumped up and down, and Peggy Paul started laughing nervously in her yard.

But yeah--I've been thinking more and more about what it will be like--I'm really anxious to be in NY, and to explore up there.

Right now, my friends are killing zombies and wailing about it, because they are wusses (note: I had to leave the room because the chaingun man scared me.)

I just feel like eating everything today. Make it stop.

School is painfully close to being over: I only have this week and next, and next week is exams so it's not a real week.

For the first time in four years I walked into Fine Arts Center, and I felt like I shouldn't be there. Not in an awkward way, but in a "my body is here but not my head" way. I think it really is time to move on.

But I still have my portfolio and my project due. It's on tale of Genji, which is a fairly ambitious book to read. I need to get some of that taken care of tonight.

Okay I'm done now.

Well, last night I stayed up until 4:00 which in retrospect wasn't a good idea, because I had to get up at 8:00. So I woke up at 8:00 went to school for two periods, came back home and slept until now which means from 10:30-5:00. Yay. Allison is coming over to work on our final Powerpoint Project for computer. Once we are done with that, we only have the final, which is wonderful because I can't wait to be done with that class.

I was up so late last night because I was distracted by nappinganarchy and bluesummers and because I went through and read my old LJ and DJ which was scary. I used to think that I was kind of cool in 9th and 10th grade, but I was obviously really mistaken. And I also wasn't very cool in 11th grade either. and I'm probably not very cool now.

I'm thinking I'm going to get a new LJ before college. Clean slate time.

Okay, computer time. Prom weekend later.

  Static Valor: Do you ever wonder about strange stuff when you're tired? I was just wondering what if cats only existed in theory, that maybe they materialized from pieces of gravity molecules and dreams in another dimension that looks like a green and black grid, reminscent of something from Tron.

man it is way too fucking late for me to be up mr 3:43

  so there is this college admissions person at Randolph Macon, and his name is Jim Duffy, and he breaks my heart because he wants me to go to Randolph Macon so bad and I'm not going. I swear, I've never met this guy but he just seems so into me going and writes me all these nice emails that I feel really bad I'm not going. I just sent him an email saying "I'm really sorry I'm not going to your college.." and I feel guilty. man.

Kay, I'm leaving today to go to Cleveland for another prom. Hopefully, this prom won't be completely lame like my own prom--I have a feeling it will be more interesting, because I get to meet all these people I always hear about.

I'm starting to get really excited about Bard, but my excitement is only dulled by my father's freaking attitude problem about me going to Bard. In his crazy brain, he thinks that me going to college in NY is some sort of statement about the quality of his parenting. When I ask him why he's being this way, he just says "you won't understand what I feel." Jesus christ, Dad, stop being such a goddamn CHICK.

Okay, but really, I am getting excited about Bard again.

I gave blood at school which was sort of uncomfortable, and then I went to the doctors, and was even more uncomfortable. I've gotten pricked three times today.

I'm reading Tale of Genji and it's pretty good but god knows how I'm going to finish it. I can't take it anywhere with me because I feel so ridiculous carrying it around.
