Here we come Portland.
The Faint. The beautiful Faint.

This makes it all worthwhile.

red bull on empty stomach =
unhappy tummy. Although, I do think it is more effective when you don't eat much. I am so sleepy lately. I got up at 11 but I still feel exhausted. I'm glad tonight is my last class, after that it is all about anthro... and maybe food/coffee.

I went to RiteAid on my lunch break, I don't know what is so compelling about the drugstore. I just really feel the need to look at everything there. Meanwhile, I spent 25$ on random almost-neccessities. I got a spinny toothbrush which seems very fun and green eye shadow and eyeliner, apy inspired perhaps.

Everyone at the office is in a meeting so it's all me right now, it's nice to be left alone, I can do stuff like this that I'm not supposed to. Anyway, I'm a shorttimer. Is that one word? Is it hyphenated?

Oh, apy, your icon is on my desktop, I'll send it later. =) I can't wait for everyone (casey) to see it.

Wednesday seems to have merged into the last few days of the week and I have a sneaking suspicion the next few days are going to become more plastic and undefined as the week goes on. I really really need some magic.

I'd be out the door by now, but Judi brought me a lovely little stack of copying and such to be done so I am finishing it up.

I feel stretched very thin right now and for the last few weeks my life seems to be a blur behind me, I can't remember what I did before the last time I slept. I can remember yesterday because it was part of today. damn I need to sleep.

My kitchen is so gross. I just left everything after cooking on Sunday and I'm trying not to think about it, it's not working too well.

Well, I want to get out of this office...

Well, unfortunately I overslept and missed my appointment at school today, we'll try that again tomorrow. My sleep pattern is really going to be a problem once I get to Alaska. At least they're an hour before us.

I got an invite to coffee today from someone I've been meaning to go see, that should be good.

Work has been a little frustrating today. Faxes for potential receptionists to replace me have been coming all day. They did some interviews too. I was looking over the resumes (which probably wasn't right) and they didn't look too great. One girl had good qualifications but had some spelling errors, too bad for her. I would like to pick my own replacement, they should let me do the interviews.

On my lunch I went to a little crafty store and bought a bunch of paper to make cards for all the people in the office I like. I think that's more personal than email or hallmark. Only 8 more work days left.

Jealous Sound is tonight, definitely good. I'm really looking forward to this. It's not been much of a concert year. Even if this is the last one I can go too before I leave, it will be worth it.

Good news:
*I slept last night
*I passed my geology test and actually got a decent grade
*18 more days at my job
*I get to see my apy tonight

Anyway, that's the best of it. There's plenty of bad stuff I just want to skip over today, so that's all I've got.

I love this poem...
Wild Geese
[Mary Oliver]

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting--
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

drinkin' drinkin' drinkin' coca coca cola...
So, today was plain strange. I had thai food and chocolate ice cream and there was hardly anyone at work and I quit both my jobs and my sister stood me up and I went to see apy at work with douglas and there was a crappy reggae/folk/country/church band playing [who sucked] and some old guy who stared at me the whole time but appearantly he's allowed to because that's what he does and then there was music in the car and some guy in the ditch on the way home who I tried to assist but needed no assistance and then there was me, making a mixed cd. Well, that's it really. More to come, stay tuned.

if man is five then the devil is six.
I am so ready to go! I'm even excited to pack my suitcase, I'm thinking of the plane ride and the airport and the ferry and the rain and I just wish it was tomorrow. Who knew that a place I dreaded as a child would mean so much to me now. Anyway, six more weeks.

There is, however, so much to do before I go. School is such a mess right now. Last night geology was delayed by all sorts of strange questions. One kid slowed the whole class down 20 minutes because he was so confused. The thing is, some people just don't believe the world is 4.6 billion years old and they think they can prove it by asking the teacher trick questions. Hi, no. If you believe the world is between 5-10 thousand years old you better start studying because you can not prove that with our text book or with the bible. Meanwhile, I have a lot of studying to do.

Hoorah. So, despite not working I actually feel like I made good use of my time tonight. I experimented with some charcoal and colored pencils, I'm in such an artsy/creative mood. I really don't know what to do with the rest of my energy tonight. I would like to go out and do something but everyone is sleeping or studying or working. I vote to discontinue Mondays all together. I feel too awake to read, if that makes sense. I want to play soccer or swim or dance or something. Ugh, ridiculous. I'm not sure if scheduling mornings for sleeping-in was such a good idea, no one wants to hang out as late as I do on a Monday, or any weekday for that matter. At work at 10:00 in the morning so at least I'll get a couple extra hours in. Aprille and I have to do anthro, maybe I should just study, I really should actually. Well, we'll see.

a working girl can't win
Drama: lets set it aside.

Today did not go according to plan whatsoever. We forgot (pretended to forget) we had a meeting at school, so apy and I had coffee and cake and watched pimp my ride this morning. Ha. Then, work was pretty okay, it went by with few flaws and minimal annoyances. School was...canceled. Of course, I was stuck in traffic on my way to school when my mom called to tell me this, so, yeah that was fun. Actually, I was glad to get out of the house for a bit.

I should really have accomplished a lot more with the extra time I had, but I pretty much avoided accomplishment of any kind.

My to do list for tomorrow is unrealistic, but ambitious. Just a few things I've got to do:

*clean and vacuum car
*wash car
*check oil
*pay bills
*buy Mikey's B-day present
*buy parent's overdue anniversary present
*accidently bump into a certain boy
*reading for geology
*reading for psychology
*studying for anthropology
*clean room
*pay fine at the library so the collection agency does not come take me away
*work all day

There's like 8... 9... 11... 14 things to do. Hmmm, my goal is to do at least 4 of these things. I can be hopeful.

pretty in blue...
My daddy told me to drive my honda today, yay!

Despite the superwarmth my car collects in the sun, I love my jolly. It so felt like summer ought to with the windows rolled down and my music turned up. It was sad in a way too though because I know I can't keep two cars.

Oh, by the way, does anyone want to buy a cute lil '86 honda accord hatchback? $800 or best offer.

Am I still sick? My voice has been hit or miss today, I sound terrible. Thank God for meds.

Even if I lose my mind, I'm keeping my sense of humor.
I was so ready for Alaska this summer, apparently the Chignik (sp?) people have first dibs so the job opportunity is looking sad.

School should be strange. I'm going to have to rely heavily on my self-motivation this quarter, which has proved a dangerous thing in the past.

I really miss living with my apyhead, and I really miss spring break, and I'm really glad we're not in Canada anymore.

I'm reading The Perks of being a Wallflower again. I so love this book. I told aprille today that although it is not a happy book, it somehow makes me feel better.

I'm out of canada, but I'm still lost in Granville. Oh apy lets go to a real country.

crying on my lunch break...
some days don't go as planned, sometimes days seem like years.

despite the house sitting and the excess of good shows and time spent with one of my favorite people, i feel like my life is getting harder.

i can't seem to find a way out of my present distressing circumstances. my family seems to have turned on me as a whole. my money/moving out situation is ironic. If I stay at home this summer I will have 3 months without my parents and a lot of time with my friends. If I go to Alaska I will have to spend the summer in close quarters with my parents, not see my friends, but will probably be able to move out when I get home. where do i go, what do i do?

i feel so hurt by so many people right now. people that are supposed to love me, my sisters, my parents, one of my closest friends. i feel like giving up, but i don't know how.

I have been watching About a Boy all week and I have temporarily imbedded the boy's version of killing me softly in my skull, damn.

I'm sitting at work, my desk is scattered with business cards and faxes and random papers. It is all a facade, an attempt to look busy and divert unwanted attention from the two or three people who might happen to walk by my desk. Pretty sad, pretty desperate. Can I go home? I'm not mentally well. Today? No, ever.

Oooh, I have an email - ooh, delete.

Oh well. Life goes on, at least I think it might.
