|i expected shark attack
Um ok, so I haven't posted in awhile but I couldn't resist:
|You'll die from a Heart Attack during Sex.|
|Your a lover not a fighter but sadly, in the act of making love your heart will stop. But what a way to go.|
|'How will you die?' at QuizGalaxy.com|
Ha ha, seems very appropriate.
Until then~ Current Mood: surprised

|'Tis the funk my friend, 'tis the funk
So recently I've been a rather grumpy little thing, and even I'm not sure what the reasoning behind it is. Although it does seem as though I'm not the only one in this position as most walk around in a state of general unhappiness. So until we all snap out of it, I guess I'll just repose dramatically here on this settee...
Adding to the aforementioned funk is the revelation that last semester's drama is far from over. In a what I considered to be polite and thoughtful turned out to be another point for my former friend to make remarks behind my back. In many ways I feel betrayed and unappreciated. It also seems as though I've picked up my "doormat" sign once again. Unfortunately, I think that this will once again put my trust walls pretty high up- I apologize for the bad attitude and aloofness to come on that aspect. Hold on kids, it's gonna be a bumpy ride.
Other than that, what can I really say? My spirits were lifted when my mom informed me that BenBen has perfected his snowball technique and hit Grace with one in the neck. I can see he's learned well.
Allright, sorry for all the rambling. Until then. Current Mood: confused

|I'm a slacker.
Basically that sums it all up. I looked back at my entries and the last time I wrote was before Thanksgiving. My excuse is that so much happened at once, and I didn't feel secure writing it all out. Suffice it to say that once again my heart has been broken and I lost a good friend. Someone I thought I could trust and who proved that promise to be false. But the silver lining is that through it all I've made an incredibly strong new friend and hope to hold on to her for a lifetime. Well enough of the maudlin routine, let's get down to the juicy stuff. After a pretty good Christmas, I came back to a much more comfortable apartment and a "final" semester at Witt. I'm starting to get all nostalgic about the whole thing and at the same time digging my heels in the ground in my state of denial.
My girls are finally back from Japan!! And although I'm horribly jealous, they've set up camp in their own apartment only about 1.5 minutes from my own. 45 seconds if I'm running. I'm glad that they're back and I plan on using the next few months to re-introduce them to campus. I'll have help of course...with Morris, Melissa, the boys, and the grandkids...
Other than that, I'm trying to keep on top of a very bust schedule that has me going from 9 to 5 every weekday. Like the song and movie, one might say. I'm noticing a certain fondness that my German professors have for my last name that comes mostly in the form of nicknames like "Finklein" and "Distelfink". And of course, "Aufkleber Fee"!!
On a side note, I think that in the past year I've become a more socialable and outgoing person and I think I like the change. I'm not sure if it was the apartment tension or the mix of alcohol and partial nudity but I find myself out playing more on the weekends. Hooray for playtime!!
Other than that, I'm sure there are details I've left out. We can catch up on all that later.
Until then. Current Mood: busy

|Turkeys and happy thoughts
So tomorrow I leave for Thanksgiving break, and it seems absolutely crazy that the year has gone by so fast already!! It seems like just yesterday I was leaving campus after spring finals and all of the sudden it's time to gather around a turkey and talk about what we're thankful for. Usually I cop out and say the vague "everything" and ask for someone to pass the mashed potatoes. But this year I do have to say that I am thankful for my friends and family. They are the glue that keeps me together, supports me, and allows me to be myself. So to each and everyone of you who fits that role, I am truly thankful for each and every one of you.
That being said, it snowed in the wee hours of the morning the other night, and as I watched the snow falling lazily from the sky, I laid in my cozy bed and shed a few tears of happiness. Although the snow didn't last long the next day it still made the world that much more magical. And after all, who doesn't like to see the world sparkle a bit?

|I did what????
So basically here's what happened: I got belligerently drunk on Saturday, to the point of doing and saying things I don't remember. Or at least only small blips of...anyways, I can graduate now because in my drunken stupor I fulfilled a certain "requirement" and a long held tradition. If you haven't figured out what that was, I'm not gonna explain it any further...(hint: it involves the Hollow)
Well, there's also this world of homework that is crashing around me that I don't really feel like doing. Just give me my degree, and let me be finished. We all know I'm not going to do the work here, sir.
Other than that there's not really a whole lot to report. I've registered for classes for the last time (tear!!) and am starting to feel a bit nostalgic. I'm sure by May I'll have my claws dug into the grounds, and I'll have to be pulled away. It's not gonna be a pretty sight.
Until then. Current Mood: silly

So in what may be regarded as the most rebellious moment of my life thus far, I got a tattoo!! He's a bubbly little moose named Morris and he resides just about an inch above my right hip. Don't worry, it didn't hurt too bad while he was being applied to my skin (plus Melissa was there to hold my hand) but it's kind of tender now. Doesn't matter, we're already fast friends. I talk to him in the shower and I'm sure that's wrong. I also plan on blaming bad behavior on him, with a "Morris made me do it" slogan. And I mean alot of bad behavior.
Other than that, Saturday Melissa and I spent the afternoon in Yellow Springs visiting the toy store there and a few other little shops. Of course, there were some clothes that made me drool and that I'll dream of for the next few months. Then we went to this creepy little cemetery and got freaked out and went to a candy store that was to die for. And then Morris, then we stayed in for the evening watching movies. Ellen was out of town, and so we kind of just chilled around the apartment for once. All in all, I think it was a rather lovely weekend.
Other than that, I don't have too much to report. Hopefully I'll have a pic of Morris soon. Drop me a line if you're interested. Until then... Current Mood: sleepy

|all you need to know
My goodness, I've gotten lax in my journalizing. It seems as though I have some catching up to do, so pull up a chair, cuz this could be a long one.
Ok, let's see...oh I got over the dreaded PINKEYE and managed to contain the disease to my own eyes. Although I was tempted to infect and conquer. Regrettably I never made it to the eyepatch stage:( I'll try harder nest time.
The tension that I have mentioned before in my living quarters has intensified and is starting to stress me out. I think I feel resolution in the wind. Or maybe a fight, I don't really know.
Somehow we've gotten to the point of midterms, and it seems there's no turning back. I've reached that stage of underprepared-overwhelmedness, where I'm beginning to think I can live without sleep. Only to find myself passed out half an hour later.
This past weekend was Krista Benner's 21st and of course, it was grand fun. We also had our second Benner vs. Fink fight and I was victorious, leaving the score at 1-1. I guess we have to duke it out once more to declare a champion. And yes Annabelle, our fight made us miss you all the more...
Besides that, I've gone on the required Cave Ecology field trip and partied my ass off on the weekends. Literally and figuratively. There's a whole new social butterfly/wildchild thing that seems to be working it's way out of my system. I'm just gonna go with it for now.
Fall Break is just around the corner and I think I'm gonna go to Northern Ohio to see relatives to California. Seems a bit strange, no? And perhaps I will make it over to the island to see how Melissa lives with the natives...you know, I'm a planner.
Speaking of plans, there may be a huge opportunity for next year in my corner. So keep your fingers crossed for me.
As for my girls abroad: I miss you and was in Keller 10 the other night. That's right I was stomping in your grounds. It was like backwards deja vu. I think. Anyways, I miss you both very much and hope that everything is going well. Drop me a line sometime, I would love to hear from you!!
Anyways, that's all I got for now although I'm sure I've left something out.
Until then. Current Mood: sleepy
|Wednesday, September 13th, 2006|
So for the first time ever I braved the Health and Wellness Center. That's right folks, the diagnosis is grim....I have....the pinkeye!! I'm not sure from whom or where I've picked it up, but there you have it. Or rather, there I have it. Anyways, I plan on having some fun with it. There's been talk of an eyepatch (with a unicorn and a rainbow!) and I've also decided that I should yell at the bar, "Don't touch me, I'm CONTAGIOUS!!" but fail to specify what I have. Hahaha. And in my true style I wore a pink sweatshirt today to match my eye. Classy, I know. Oh and Westersee asked if I wanted to rub eyes together....haha...creeeeepppyyy....yees
Anyways, enough of that stuff. Because of the aforementioned dastardly disease, I've received a reprieve from both work and Caving meetings tonight so I am footloose and fancy free. So I guess I'm utilizing said time to clean my room/decorate and if the muse so inspires tackling that huge load of homework. Notice, I'm desperate enough to clean before the homework. At least I've got my priorities straight.
Campus seems kinda lonely this year. I feel like I get bored a lot more. Or maybe it's a different kind of restlessness. Two other people is slightly less entertaining than one hundred other people. It gives me more time to "study". And then of course there's the blur of weekends that I do most of my misbehaving during...
Other than that it's a beautiful day, so perhaps a project out on the porch or more sidewalk chalk. Hmmmmmm
Until then. Current Mood: sick
|Saturday, September 9th, 2006|
So Euphoria (my computer) is finally fixed!! Yay!! I feel like a functioning part of the social world again.
Speaking of social world, I had quite an interesting night last night. It started with a "toys" party and continued with a trip to the bar, shirtless o'clock (in which I was one of two participants :o) and then i was tucked into bed by Melissa only to be burst in upon by a sticker request. And that was all in one night. I think perhaps this will be my completely wild and crazy year. It's a good way to let off steam.
Anyways, classes are going relatively well and I must say that I'm not freaking out to much about the whole lack of plans for my future, yet.
As for you girls in Japan, I miss you tons and wish you fun and safe travels wherever you are. By the way your little notes warm my heart!! I'll try a little harder to keep up now that I can do it form the convenience of my room.
Until then, I'll have more to report later I'm sure ;) Current Mood: busy
|Wednesday, August 30th, 2006|
Oh my- it's been a long time since I updated, so here's a brief overview:
Moved into Sprecha Fo and I am enjoying living across from the lovely Krista Benner. She and I as well as Jillian, and my roomies and others indulged in some films. Let me just say this, if Jesus isn't a lounge singer yet, he should look into it.
I am bonding quite a bit with Melissa and having a grand time in her company. Things have been uber tense in the apartment and when I was upset she brought me some hot chocolate and some very sweet song lyrics. I think she's a contender for my heart. She's also invited me to come home with her this weekend. Perhaps I will be island hopping.
In other news, I miss the Japanese bound very much. I wander around like they just might pop up somewhere. It's kinda like we're playing ginormous hide n' seek. Needless to say they're really good hiders. Ollie Ollie oxenfree!!
And this year the whole sticker thing has gotten bigger than ever. I mean huge.
I'll have more tidbits later, until then. Current Mood: busy
|Sunday, August 13th, 2006|
That's right, I'm back Poltergeist style. Coming out of your TV. And so on and so forth. Anyways, the beach was FANTASTIC!! I was out in the water (up to and over my shoulders everyday) and only nearly drowned once. But in my moment of panic I propelled my brother to the surface, so I guess I made a wise choice. There would have been a nationwide riot had the infamous BenBen been lost to the Atlantic. But all drama aside, I am now a noticeably darker shade as I pack my things for school. It's strange, the summer seemed to drag on for the first couple of weeks and then just sped up out of nowhere. Now it's the middle of August and I have to move in and get ready for classes and of course a list of other things.
I'm excited and scared to move into our apartment. Mostly scared to be there alone, but I'll be excited when the other girls move in. Of course, I've also made up a little slogan for the Sprecha Fo Girls. Real gangsta, cuz we are.
Somewhere along the way my siblings have inflicted me with a slight cold so for the past few days I've been walking around with tissues. It's quite funny because I think my dad assumes I'm "being emotional" so he's left me alone for the past few days. Yes Dad, I'm very sad to be moving out. Away from the constant questions and lack of privacy. That's it.
Ok, I guess that's it until I have something. For now, I got nothing.
Until then. Current Mood: pleased

|life's a beach
Ok, so I went there. I used the old cliche as my title. Only because I'm at the beach can I even fathom being allowed such a privilege. Anyways, here's a quick overview of the last few days:
After a considerably shaky Wednesday and Thursday I got back to my regular routine, just in time for panic packing yesterday. Halfway to Cincinnati, my Dad informs me that I'll be making the first leg drive of our trip. The 10PM- 2AM slot. And I've never had to drive it before. Don't worry, no one was seriously injured. After arriving at our GORGEOUS beach house, I unpacked my things in the room and bathroom I have all to myself!! I am thrilled beyond belief. Just me and my Babette. Then I actually got into the ocean and got in up to my shoulders. That's a huge deal for me.
Over dinner my aunt announced that she's expecting, and merriment went all around. Then on the way home back to the aforementioned beach house I got a lovely surprise call from Ellen in which she told me that her mother said she liked me, and seemed supportive of our "when we're forty pact." Awesome.
So tomorrow I plan to lay out and read either Mansfield Park or The Once and Future King. Or both. And eat tons of food and drink to my heart's content.
I know, I'm living the rough life.
Until then. Current Mood: happy

|happy new month
I cannot believe it's August already. Where does the time go, little ones?
Let's see, I'm trying to recall where I left off. I think it was somewhere between Decatur and DC. I made it thgough my duties as babysitter seemingly unscathed. I'm just as surprised as you are, trust me. And I'm now a proud owner of a Rosie the Riveter lunch box, and some tattoos from the Spy Museum. I have big plans for the one that says "Deny Everything". Anyways, other than that I've been working my life away in the highest room in the tallest tower.
Went to Louisville and played with Ellen. Achieved an extremely high putt-putt score and made friends with John, who was delightfully charming and lots of fun. And then I made a scene at Waffle House. Twice. It was rather entertaining.
Well kiddos, I guess for now that's all I got.
Until then. Current Mood: tired

"Once you are tagged you MUST write an entry about 6 weird habits/things you do/odd information, as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next six people to be tagged and list their names."
Ok, so I was tagged by both Annabelle and Katiekay.
1) The first thing I notice about people is their hands. The size, softness, cleanliness (or dirtiness as the case may be) and what they wear on their hands.
2) Almost everyone knows I'm terrified of underwater creatures, especially sharks. However, we used to have a tiny pet shark in our fish tank that I named...you guessed it Jaws. I insisted that we get another one though when Jaws went belly up and I named him...Jaws Jr.
3) I sneeze everyday and each time it's between 5-10 sneezes every time. And they're all tiny sneezes too. I think they've been referred to as "pinkies up" and "bunny" sneezes. Not by me.
4) I talk to myself all the time. But the real entertainment comes when I argue with myself or tell myself jokes. And then react back. Or I'll agree with myself during a conversation in my head. Just walking along all silent and then "you could say that" slips out.
5) When I was about 4 years old I drank an entire bottle of Pepto Bismol. And didn't receive medical treatment because I never told anyone what I did. Until very recently in fact.
6) I have so many sleeping oddities they could have been my whole list. But I thought that would be a bit boring (and make me sound crazier) so I'll just do a general overview. I talk, gasp, tuck people in, and run the whole range of emotional expressions in my sleep. I also sleep better when I'm wearing matching pajamas(?), express goodnight wishes or goodnight kisses, or sleep in the same room/bed as someone else. And I don't like being told I'm sleepy.
There you go, more than you ever wanted to know.

|oh what a world...
Ohio is crying. The sky has opened up and let it just pour. I'm sitting inside watching the trees sway gently in the wind, from three stories up. And although I hear the thunder and the flashes of lightning that snake across the sky, it's the kind of rain that I want to run through. That refreshing feeling that drenches you in the hot weather. Urges you to come play. It makes me restless and glad that I left my umbrella in the car for once. Perhaps some happy puddle jumping after work. Hopefully I won't melt.
I can remember getting caught in the rain a few times in past summers, and in those moments everything seems beautiful and pure. The same with snow. (Except for the summer part!) I guess I get pretty excited about precipitation. Oh well, we've all gotta have something.
Until then. Current Mood: restless
|Sunday, July 16th, 2006|
Well, it's been awhile since we've chatted so I thought I would submit my field report. Anyways, I finally visited the delicious Annabelle and I had quite a lovely time. Seriously, the time spent with her was just what I needed. It makes me sad to think about late August though, and how I'll dearly miss my girls. I'll break out more details later I'm certain. Just suffice it to say that I had a grand time and I hope she did too. I worried that I was frustrating and boring, but I dunno. Oh well, I am a silly puppy. I didn't want to leave and I'm hoping that I can go back sometime relatively soon. I've even let the phrase "y'all" slip out a few times since I've been back.
Back here in Ohio, it's hella hot. Hotter than hot. Hung out with Melissa and Ellen. Got a free shot just for Melissa's pretty face...I'm serious. I think that kid was trying to win my favor with alcohol. Worked for me.
Anyways tomorrow it's back to the grindstone. And then the parentals leave on Wednesday. I might be making some outreach phone calls this week. Be prepared.
I'm giving my Tall Tale some thought. be on the lookout.
Until then. Current Mood: curious

|so much to do, so little time...
Oops, how did today sneak up on me? It seems as though I have about a million and a half things to do before tomorrow. Especially if I plan on catching my flight. Perhaps I'll just skip packing and live in these clothes for a week. Hmmm, I'm not sure that is a wise decision for me.
Anyways, July 4th this year seemed very strange. Like it wasn't a holiday. Plus it messed up my day of the week order. The family came over, well most of them. Here's some strange going-ons / comments my family expressed this weekend:
-According to my grandma the small of my back is very aesthetically pleasing and is only complimented by my "dancer's butt". I have no idea what she's talking about. Silly grandma.
-My aunt and cousin encouraged me to get a tattoo. I suspect their motives may be to get my uncle to get one too. I guess if I can do it, he can too.
-Due to recent cleaning out, we had an old box of antiques that everyone went through. In the box were some crazy things, including a very old meat cleaver. I'm hoping it's not evidence from a crime scene...
So after work, I will be running around trying to get everything done. But until then I will live in ignorant bliss of the heap of things towering over me.
ps- Ms. Katie Kay, how thrilling to hear about your new Doc Holiday pal. Best part is you can sit him in your lap and no one can say anything about it!! love love Current Mood: anxious
