I'm swamped with midterms and whatnot so i'll be a bit but don't fret! I think of my blogbuddies always!
Hope ur all doing fine
She wanted to know whether Mani was a real cowboy or a wannabe cowboys because there are many wannabe cowboys where she lives and she's tired of them...
No he's not a real cowboy, he's also a wannabe.. he's belgian, he's grown up on fine wine and escargot I'm afraid.. still.. he's rugged... hmm.. example.. He rides bikes.. like MotorX bikes, and is a star rugby player ( although I haven't actually seen him play myself, everyone around him constantly raves about him), and the Junior dream team for a professional soccer club in Europe ( I think it was in France?) tried to sign him but he broke his spine doing a motorcycle trick to show off for his gf at the time.... so maybe not rugged just stupid? stupid but still cute :)
ok for real i'm ouuuuuuut
TOOOOOOOO much is going to be happening in the next week so I am going to apologize for not blogging next week as much as I'd like to. It's homecoming!!! Means Queen's alumni are coming back for boozing and football! My friends and I are going to start the day off with pancake keggers ( BEER FOR BREAKFAST.. HOW GLORIOUS!) and then head over to the football game ( maybe).. there are always those streakers though.. I really care not to see it although the thought is funny. THEN we go out!!! Who knows where! I gotta break out the clubbing gear,.. a gold mesh slinky shirt with a diagonal strip of spread gold sequins with beads in the mesh in the straps shall be my attire... just don't know which jeans to wear with it and whether or not I will be wearing heels! I realllly wish Mani could be here for homecoming. He'd have so much fun and get to hang out with my friends that left Kingston.
AAAAAAAnyhoo.. I have to start planning Bri's dinner party..she's leaving for France this year to party it up wiht her friend for a year... yargh! I got tihs massive card for everyone to sign but so far not ONE signature! I got her this large wooden beaded necklace with matching earrings, I hope she likes it!
See you all! Wish u were all coming to my homecoming!
B&B = Beer and Breakfast :D
ok sorry sorry.. it's just school is really crazy ALREADY!
ok Jackie, I'll just explain my shoes and then for sure i will have them posted by the end of this week.. they are strings of white and black, inch high stillettos' that tie in knots at cute places and just decorate my feet.. really funky and pretty too... i LOVE THEM.
they hurt but I try to repeat my sister's mantra: fashion over comfort... i think she stole that from Carrie on SATC
I'M SO SAD! Thanks Mey for trying to make me feel better. I've kinda become used to my bf being around... so I think i'm just going to have to be sad for a while until I get used to being without him again. :(
My dad came up today, brought my mother's marvelous sushi... I had 30 pieces because i skipped lunch so that I could eat it all when dad came at 3pm
He left though shortly afterwards.. I'm so lucky.. my mom spent alll day and night in the kitchen to make me precooked porkchops and Korean bbq and bought fruits and my dad drove for 6 hours to bring it all to me. I know people call me spoiled and a princess for it but I think I'm just really blessed with loving parents and I will strive to be like them too.
So my mom is still on my case about not eating ginseng anymore ( you know, death in the form of powder?) so my circulation sucks again and i'm having bouts of heat-loss trauma... but my mom brought me the super duvet.... HUUUUUUUUGE FLUFFY HEAVEN ON EARTH! I wish mani was here to be able to sleep in that.. its like sleeping on clouds! You can't see the person underneath. I think we all need to appreciate the little details that make sleeping so wonderful.... Puffy pillows, big ass duvets, giant carebear teddy bf buys you and greater-than-400 thread count. My best friend Lisa has this obsession with linen. Good quality linen though expensive is priceless and could affect the quality of your sleep.. and you really can't put a price on good sleep...
I've just had an epiphany and that is, I am an shopping, sleeping, food whore. that sucks
I talked to my friend Di the other day. She has this friend ... let's call her Linda for now. She is this girl who dates losers ... drug dealers that can give her that " right-here-right-now satisfaction" you name it, sex, expensive haute couture fashion and a ride in a pimp-mobile, dig?
ok so this girl has a bf who buys things with his dirty money yet she's always sponging rides off dianne. She doesn't offer to pay for gas or parking and di doesn't even get to drink at the clubs she drives this chick to. I want to tell her off. What girl accepts all these expensive presents but doesn't want to lose face in asking her man for cabfare.. you know what kind of girl pulls that shit? a pigeon-head, that's who. That's right, Linda.. you in your Dior pumps yet you can't afford a bus pass, I'm talking to you! Stop sponging off my friend!
My dad is going to Korea in a few weeks to go to my cousin's wedding. He's much older than me. I'm kinda sad i don't get to go.. my family history on my dad's side is a bit sad and complicated..that is for another day.
Alright! well I will talk to you all soon!
So I'm a student right? and I have this desk clerking job for the residences at my school and the place is crawling with underaged, prepubescent, drunk off one cooler bottle 17 year olds with no ID and no place to go anyways. Not only that, but I have a midnight shift. I always sleep during these shifts, I absolutely cannot stay up. It's so brutal!
Mani and I watched 10 episodes back to back of the Family Guy to try and keep us awake but even THAT didn't work!
Ok... so I just added up allllll my bills and I spent 668 bucks on clothes and shoes this week. THAT SUCKS! holy crap... it's like I just unleashed myself. Ok... no more shopping until.... until for a very long time!!! omg.. it's like I'm my out of control sister or something.. i'm usually not that bad. This is what happens when you finally cave and accept money from you're desperate mom with unremitting mom syndrome after you've been making money on your own for a few months. argh. I'm so disappointed with myself.
Jackie, ( or was it shell?) I will definitely take a pic of my new shoes when I get home and post it for you to see :D It looks better on even though I have boat-sized feet.
I think somewhere along the line my growth got stunted... 5"7 is definitely not tall enough for my big ass feet and my spidery long fingers. Damn.
I guess I'm just rambling. My poor Mani is sleeping on the couches at Vic Hall. I have so many things to do today after I'm done this shift that it's mind boggling.
You know, I have really high hopes for this year. I know this sounds so cheesy, but I feel like I'm finally understanding the meaning of busting your ass and being responsible for what happens to you. In other words, I hope I'm mature this year. :P It took me awhile to get it you see. I only hope God sees it that way too.
WEll, clearly I'm incoherent and not in my right head.... I am in desperate need of sleep... midnight to morning shifts should be illegal.
ok I'M REALLY SORRY AGAIN!
I'VE NEVER BEEN SO STRESSED OUT IN MY LIFE! Mani is still here! He's leaving in a few days so I'm really getting bummed..ok wait, truthfully it hasn't it me yet but it will so I thought I'd give you the update beforehand so you'd know how i WOULD feel...
how've you all been? I'm sure you're all great, I have to catch up on all your lives too. This summer, I wrote the dreaded MCATs which is why I had to leave for a bit. I rocked the science parts ( i hope I did, I feel that I did) but VERBAL WHICH IS F***ING G***DAMN READING COMPREHENSION WAS SO HARD?!?!?!?!? WHY!?!?!? IT SHOULD BE EASY!!!!!!!!!
it don't matter, I don't want to discuss it. My mom treated me to a whole tub of frozen yogurt after so i'm happy :)
Mom's are the best aren't they? My littlest sister moved into her condo/res suite style this past Sunday.. she's the last girl to go. I'm sorry I couldn't have seen her leave. My other sister who is only a year and a half younger got to go.. she's got this tough persona, this exterior as a very catty girl, fasionista socialite you know the type? she BAWLED and hugged my baby sister and she was like, " i can't leave her here!" .... very surreal... but also devastatingly entertaining dawling.
Apparently she's already a hit and many boys are already asking about her... grrrr... i'm going to pay her a visit and give some boys the eye.... you know, I've also seriously considered installing a system that will apply mild electric shocks to the unwelcome foes whenever they approach her door.. whaddya think? it worked on rats, it should work on the wolves as well.
Anyways, so I'm talking to my mom right? and I'm telling her how homesick I was first year and how I cried and suddenly she started BAWLING !!!! i was so shocked... i kept saying, " mom.. i'm sorry.. don't cry.. she's going to be ok..." and mani was beside me shaking his head in disapproval like, " how can you make your mother cry !?"
it was awful.... i feel so bad.. but you know i thought about it from my mom's perspective and I think it's a really big betrayal! You sacrifice and live for your offspring and one day they pack up and venture into the unknown not even looking back! ( she mentioned erica was so excited she didn't look back.. i think it hurt my mom)
Man, when I have kids I'm going to whip their asses good.. they better appreciate! :P
Today, I bought the sexiest stilettoes I've seen in a REALLY long time!!! i'm soooo excited :D They were onsale for half from 145 ... so 72.50.. i know that's not much of a deal but they are so delicious.. I couldn't walk away. SO TODAY I'M HAVING A FANTASTIC DAY!!!
Although at one store I tried on these capris and I couldn't squish my ass into it! I tried to squish each ass cheek individually into it but that tactic didn't work either! To my dismay, the pants didn't fit but it's ok. I still fit into most of my other jeans at home. i just gotta lie on the bed and suck in my tummy for two of them.
Alright! So I gotta get going but I wanted to say i'm really sorry for not keepign you guys updated ( for those of you who follow me and my very own personal lurker who still opts to remain anonymous)
edit: ok I feel so foolish rambling on about my shoes... I'm praying for Hurricane Katrina victims... it's truly a devastating event and I hope everyone down in the southern states will recover soon :(
