New Stuff

So, I went shopping today. Again. I need to stop. I purchased some black shorts, some flip flops, lotion, and a book. The book is what I'm most excited about. It's Glass by Ellen Hopkins. Basically, her books are... You know, there's really not an adjective to precisely describe her books. Riveting, captivating, emotional only scratch the surface. These books are some of my favorites. I haven't read the all, but you can bet that I will. I have to make more space on my bookshelf first. It's pretty cramped... Okay, it's really cramped.

I'm planning on starting Glass tonight. I'll make sure I tell you have much I love it later.70

Oh, and my friend, Liz, and I were discussing which television shows should keep while discarding everything else. Our list:

NCIS, CSI (with Grissom), L&O: CI and SVU, CSI: NY, Criminal Minds, House, The Nanny, South Park, Family Guy, 70's and 80's re-runs, Golden Girls, Designing Women, The Big Bang Theory, and of course, Glee.

Opinions? Thoughts? Care to add a show?

That's right! I am now employed at J. Crew. I won't have my first day at work until sometime next week, but knowing that I have some kind of job lined up for the summer is comforting; and the pay--fantastic! I haven't worked anywhere yet that's payed me 8 bucks an hour so one can see especially why I'm stoked! I mean, the money isn't the only reason--I really like working retail especially in comparison to bussing tables.

I'm excited, nonetheless and hope I enjoy it as much as I enjoyed working at Tommy.

Awkward IM

So, my senior year of high school I "dated" this guy. I use quotes because our "relationship" was a whopping 4 days. So I get an instant message tonight from him. "Hello beautiful. How are you gorgeous?"

I'm kind of shocked, but I can see where this is heading. And as I predicted, it ended with a, "I still like you."

Strange, because I haven't thought about this kid romantically in a while. I mean, I consider him to be a friend of mine, he's a sweet enough guy, but for some reason I just think he still likes me because it's convenient; other things aren't working out romantically and I just so happen to pop into his head.

It kind of makes me feel used and like a back-up for when things don't go as planned. I have more value than that.

Since It's Been Eons

My first semester at SU has been complete. I'm still waiting on my final grades which is pretty nerve wracking. What's so weird about college, is that it's so hard to know where you stand in a class academically until midterms or finals unless your professor posts grades frequently. And it makes me very anxious not knowing how I'm doing in a class especially when the turn around time for papers and quizzes isn't quick. Like my Spanish class, I had an A- at midterms and I have no clue how the hell that happened. Not that I'm complaining, but it doesn't seem (from what I can calculate) that my midterm grade will be better. It's unfortunate; I tried my hardest.

I am glad though that my classes are over. So beyond glad. I mean, I liked most of my classes, my psych, and my costume tech class, and Spanish when the love/hate relationship I have with it is on the loving part.

But now I'm enjoying "summer." I'll really be able to enjoy it in 10 weeks when my 2 classes are over. Although I am enjoying driving to my classes. I finally feel like I have some freedom. I don't enjoying going to class, they aren't dull, but who really wants to go to classes during the summer? July 19th can't come soon enough.

Also, I've been pounding the pavement looking for a job. Tommy doesn't have enough payroll to re-hire me for the summer. I have an interview at J. Crew on Friday, and I would really, really like to work there. The clothes are fantastic!

Anyway, that's how life has been for the past few months. Pretty boring.
