I'm moving out. [25 Aug 2005|12:53am]

One last update for the night.


Yep. New journal.

Why? .. Ha. Why not?

Add it. Anyone -- everyone. I won't bite.

I'm thinking of getting a new journal. Sigh. I feel like I need to for some reason.

No surprises here.Collapse )

I've been slowly packing and cleaning all day.

I also got a hair cut and highlights with some serious red-violet going on. I love it.

I saw Casey for like, an hour and a half before he had to go to band. Sigh.

It's really weird that my room looks empty already even though I'm nowhere NEAR finished with everything I have to do. Maybe I'll get some help from Casey tomorrow because he said he wasn't doing anything. I mostly need to throw a lot of things away. I've already gone through a giant trash bag (I'm working on my second) and another giant trash bag of clothes I'm giving to Goodwill.

The quilt has been nothing but trouble. My mom and I decided that since the new fabrics are too heavy already, putting my old quilt inside instead of batting would be a bad idea. The whole thing would probably fall apart or something. So insead we decided to go out and buy batting, except it's really thin. No matter, I guess. There's two thick layers of fabric on top and one thick bottom because we decided to use black topsheets instead of regular cotton fabric. Working with it is.. interesting. We've definately made this project very hard on ourselves. Ha.

So I heard band rehearsal tonight was "gay".

... well, what else is new? (:

She fell! [23 Aug 2005|07:56pm]
[ mood | mellow ]

This whole cleaning and packing thing is much more difficult than I though. I'm just so unmotivated.

My mom almost has the cover to my quilt together. She's still acting weird -- I swear that woman is terrible with conveying emotion. She just brought me food. And she also told my brother to get off his fat ass before she slapped him because he was in the way of her quilting. And now they're fighting again. HA. Guess what he just said? "You do what I say because I'm the man of the house!"

.. What a fucking retard. The oaf can't even refill his own glass of water without complaining about it. Ugh.

My last night of work ♥ A few weird things happened: some old lady fell near the elevator. About four other old people were there to witness it, as was I. They were all like, "OMGZ SHE FELL!!1" and they all hobbled over to her with their walkers and canes. I just stared at the situation. Luckily when the elevator that I was waiting for came, a nurse exited it and helped the old people with their issues. What else? Hmn. OH. I brought some old guy his tray and he was mumbling things and he couldn't really move. He was smiling really weirdly at me, though. He started talking louder and said, "I want to get drunk. Let's get drunk! Come on, will you get drunk with me?!" I smiled at him and ran out. Oh, and another lady yelled at me from across the hall. Her: "Honey! Hey! Excuse me? Honey! Sweetie?!" I finally noticed that she was trying to get my attention. I asked her what she wanted. Her response? "Sugars." How many? "Fii." .. five. Ah, the silly way some people talk. Finally, Greg gave me a hug and a kiss at the end of work because it was my last night.


My mom looked at the shirt I'm wearing, which is Casey's, and asked me if it was new. I told her no, because it's Casey's shirt. She gave me a look and said, "Now I know that there's no WAY that shirt can fit.. oh, well I guess he's a skinny kid." I told her that we have the same shirt size. She gave me another stupid look and walked away.

Oh my.

I'm going to Kohl's to buy a bra or two (maybe some really cute ones.. LIKE SAM's!) and perhaps to find an alarm clock.

So I spent last night at Nicole's lakehouse with her, Jenn, BCon, and Holley ... AND SAMMMMM!!!! <3<3

They bought me a cake that said "Good Luck Amanda" and I wanted to cry.

Also, never have I ever wanted to flash someone so badly before.

Before I leave today I have to vacuum the whole house and.. well, some other things my dad just told me that I completely forgot. Oh well.

My mom just came in and gave me a lecture about how I have six days left and that I need to clean out my whole room before then. Now, to those of you have seen my room (even when I've "cleaned" it), you know that this is going to take me at least three days. I have to sort through all the clothes I own and give away the ones that I don't want or don't fit, I have to clean out both of the dressers (yes, I have two because I don't know why), and the tops that have a ton of crap on them, I have to clean out my closet completely (there's crap piled up to my vagina in there), and I have to clean off that wire cube thing in front of the closet, which has so much crap on top of it that it's actually started to collapse.

Well, I guess I really do need to clean out my room. But I just really don't want to because it's going to take me five lifetimes to accomplish. Sigh.

Well, I'm leaving for Nicole's lake house with Sam, Nicole, Britt, and Holley sometime later on today. I'm coming back early.. ish tomorrow because as it stands now, my mom and I are doing my quilt and perhaps finishing up shopping for college crap. And I start

Then Monday. Oh, what a glorious day Monday will be! I'll get to sleep in as long as I want, maybe start picking up something in my room, going to work, and then .. yeah. I think Tuesday will be even better, because it's my last day of work (:

Ah. I might go insane again.

Not too much to report.

Well, except that I'm using a new screen name. Cautious tones. Add it, whatever. I'm using my buddylist that I had for discordxo, so if you were on that, you're probably on this one (:

Funny thing, I had to make a new email account because I had too many screen names on majorminorx@hotmail. Come to think of it, I probably have about fifteen screen names on that account. Weird, considering that I only actually used about half of them [:

I can sleep in for a bit tomorrow, then cleaning, then picking up everyone and driving to Nicole's lake house, which is near my grandparents' lake house. Wwwooo. DDR and fun times before I leave.

Ah, six days <3<3

My dad high fived me because my period finally came. Hooray.

I need to get my cell phone back from Leslie =\

Yesterday I took off my pants with Emma and we went swimming at the beach with the rest of the band. That was a first for me, I must say.

I have to work tonight. Boo. Luckily coutning tonight I only have four more nights of work until I can call it quits for a few months :D

I need to go to the doctor's office and drop off my papers for school that they have to fill out. I should also start putting my sheets and stuff in the laundry and perhaps start packing my things up a bit.

My dad isn't going to be here when I move to UNH. Well, not in the morning anyway. The earliest flight he could get back home won't get him here until noonish. So my mom's really mad. And she's kind of taking it out on me. Example? She told me that I coulnd't stay out next Thursday night because it's the night before I leave.

.. I think that's stupid and I'm very upset over it. Sigh.

Hugh Jackman turned down James Bond. He decided that he didn't need the deal he was offered as Bond in the next three films to boost his career. I think he's doing just fine now. But I also think he would make a very wonderful Bond. And maybe I'd actually watch 007 movies for a change.

Anyway, today was long and had its ups and downs. Perhaps the weirdest part of the day was seeing Greg, Steph, and Kristin trying on their uniforms. Kristin has my pants and Steph has my gauntlets. Greg doesn't have anything of mine -- he did try on my top, but it didn't fit him right because it was too short and he doesn't exactly have much in the boob area. Grow some man boobs, Greg! :D I guess he pretty much has Sean Greenlaw's uniform. Which is weird. Anyway, all of this is weird.

A lot of stupid things happened to me today, most notably this morning on the ride back from Emily's house. I have only disclosed this story to Casey, but perhaps I'll tell others. I love sharing personal and retarded stories with friends. Yeeaaah..

No massacre in my vagina yet. Sigh.

Emily's was fun last night :D I got a chance to catch up with Caitlin and it was just a goofy time. I wish I didn't have to leave so early in the morning, but duty to my ungrateful, lazy, oafish brother calls.

Ten days until I'm at UNH. It just can't come soon enough.

Stress is bad. I hate it. It makes me cry.

I slept until 2. I woke up and took a shower. Now I have to get ready for work and eat something before I leave. My legs hurt so much. I'm just.. exhausted.

I feel bad that I can't go to Marcus's party. But I have to work =\ Siigh.

Oh, and a question to him (if he ever reads this): I thought Spartans won Division II..? Eh. Weird. I could have sworn that I saw that they won somewhere. And Sam's mom thought they did, too. Oh well. I guess they didn't. Hooray for East Cost Jazz, then.

Work, picking up Casey and spending a small amount of time with him, coming back home to gather some things, then to Emily's house.

The next morning? Band camp. Well, at 12.

I can't believe that it's so soon -- or, it seems like it. Whatever. It's going to be weird being at band camp and not being a part of band, I guess.

Weird and sad.

DCI Finals were amazing. My favorite show by far was by Santa Clara Vanguard. They did Russia: Revolution/Evolution. It had the best general effect in my opinion and the whole crowd loved it. Phantom Regiment was another show that I really liked. I wasn't a huge fan of the Caveliers show or Boston Crusaders. They just didn't have a very big effect on me I guess.

The Cadets had a freaking sweep of the entire show. Not only did they come in first, but they got best everything: horns, percussion, guard, general effect.. everything. I didn't think they deserved general effect. I guess that's why I'm not a judge on the DCI circuit, I guess :D Then again, the whole crowed booed them when they found out that the Cadets won everything. Their score for the show was a 99 point something, which is an absolutely ridiculious score.

The upper section of Gillette Stadium is scary, I'm not going to lie. The seats are on like, a 60 degree angle or something. You feel like you're going to fall forward the whole time. I like it though, probably because I like heights and that kind of thing.

I had the worst time ever getting into my house. My parents think that I'm staying at Sam's house tonight, but I figured that it wouldn't be a good idea because they want me to do freaking housework tomorrow before I go to work. Then it's to Emily's house and band camp in the morning -- well, when I wake up. Which, by the time that happens, it'll be time for band camp.


I feel terrible right now, mood-wise I guess. I'm not going to get to see Casey .. forever. And that made me cry on the drive home. Maybe that's just because my period won't come [or the massacre in my vagina, as I put it earlier] and I'm wicked tired. I can't tell. But I feel like a horrible person and I just need someone to tell me that I'm not. That sounds bad. Oh well.

I'm skipping work tomorrow to go to DCI Finals with Sam, Britt, and Nicole <3<3<#<#33;lkajd;fka <3!

Sunday night is going to be full of giggling, reminiscing, and sadness. A sleepover with a bunch of girls who I've known pretty much forever. Some since second grade, some since seventh grade. Emily, Kim, Paige, Sarah, Courtney, Caitlin, Jill. I think it's fitting that we have one last sleepover before we all go our separate ways into the world. I have a feeling that DDR, gossip, and eight trips to Dunkin Donuts will rule the night. Oh joy, oh rapture.

Band camp on Monday. I'll be there -- well, a whole damn lot. I have to teach Greg, Steph, and Kristin everything I know, which may or may not turn out to be a lot. Probably the latter. But this time I'm in it for help and support, and there's little to no pressure on me. That's probably going to be really weird, I'm not even going to lie at all.

My mom has been running around the house yelling "Two weeks from today! Dan, did you hear? TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY?!" And they both cheer.

I thought my mom was supposed to be sad that I'm leaving the house? Especially considering what she's left with when I'm gone: a crazy and possibly deaf mother, a fat oafish son who thinks he's the best thing ever, a slovenly husband, and a dog who needs more attention than a two year old.

Well, I'm going on a walk with Emily.

I was just playing a team match on Gunz, and it was left down to me and some other guy. So I'm running around trying to find and kill him, and he types in "come out pussy cat" and I'm like, WFT. Er. Yeah.

Anyway. Tonight I was downtown with Casey and then Galen and his brother showed up. After sending Nathaniel to Bullmoose, Galen talked to us and I tried to burn my plastic cup from Breaking New Grounds. That was exciting.

Tomorrow -- er, today -- I don't have to work. Oh, what a joyous day it shall be! Galen might call me and I might go to Kohls with him to visit Casey so he can maybe get a pair of shoes. That would be exciting. Perhaps I'll actually go to Hibachi with Conor and Kim since Conor said he could pay for me. Aww.

I cleaned my room. Sort of. I don't know if I mentioned that before. I thought it was worth noting because now, as Casey puts it, you can actually see my floor. Just because I'm a complete slob doesn't mean that you should make fun of me :D

PMS is bad news.

Tomorrow night is my final night in my six-night string of working. Then I get one day off, work for another day, another day off.

Anyway, I have a couple of the days for band camp off. Oh, I'll be there my friends. I'm kind of excited to take the new drum majors and tell them everything I know. Or.. don't know. Well, stuff. Tips, I guess.

I can picture the first football game: I'll be there telling Greg to calm down the whole time. Every single one of us knows that he'll be freaking out. Ah, wonderful Greg <3

I really need to clean my room.

Yeeah. I'm going to play GunZ now. I always feel like I have nothing to say. I'm looking forward to Nicole's lake house and blahblah.

My mom took me out shopping for school today.

We bought about eight million bags of stuff from Linens n Things, Walmart, and Kohls.

Oh, Kohls. My mother had a field day in there. Half of the things we bought were for her or the house. As we were walking in she told me, "I probably owe them a paycheck" -- my mom + a Kohls charge card = bad news for everyone.

Anyway. I have most of the things I need. But.. I kind of think that I need to wait to buy a rug. Eh.

All the servers are lagging. Gunz, why do you pain me so?

I haven't been writing much.

I guess it's not because I don't have things to say. It's more like I don't really feel like it. I'm busy playing Gunz or something. You know.

I burped really loudly at work today. And I flicked a spoon at Greg, the cook for the night. Oops. It was a dumb night. I couldn't concentrate on anything. I put wrong things on trays, forgot things, I even spilled a salad and some Carnation Instant Breakfast. Beh. That stuff tastes weird anyway.

PMS is not fun. Ever.

I almost stepped on a butterfly today.

I just found out why I never played any MMO games before.

Well actually, it kind of made me laugh. I didn't get any "OMG IT'S A GIRL SHE HAS BOOBS" kind of things in the entry-level channels, but now that I'm in the beginner channels some people are starting to treat me.. weirdly. It's funny because the two guys I play with noticed it too and they helped me make fun of everyone. It's just.. stupid. I'm like, "YES. I HAVE A VAGINA AND BOOBS. I CAN ALSO SHOOT YOU AND YOU WILL DIE!" and then they die. I would say that they were trying to hit on me, but it's so retarded that all I can do is laugh.


Anyway, Gunz is working for me again. Great happiness is within me.

After a long and stupid day, things are starting to straighten out for me. I've found that I don't like being at home unless I'm asleep or up playing Gunz in my room from 11 pm to 3 am with Adult Swim on the TV next to me. I even like being at work better than being here. Weird. I guess I just really can't wait to leave.

My money for UNH is due today. I wonder if my loan was dispursed? Who knows. Bah.

A great sadness has befallen me. The Korean bastards who created Gunz have decided to update it -- a major update. That is good, I guess, but now no one can play. That is, unless you uninstall the game and download it again. Thankfully that now takes between one and five hours T_T I am saddened. I want to go ahead and uninstall it, but I was told that I can go through bittorrent or something to do it. Luckily I have smart Gunz friends who can direct me through this process. Unfortunately, I'm going out and probably won't be back until midnight.. ish. That's usually when I do all my Gunz playing. Of course, with the download times being as lengthy as they are, I probably won't get to play tonight. Sigh.

Oh well =\ At least my car is back is working order <3<3<3<3

Today was.. weird. But it ended well, I guess. My car is sitting in the Pep Boys parking lot probably crying because I left it there. Oh well. Damn thing needs to be fixed -- or else!

Lots of fun is being had on Gunz. I think I like playing on a team with my newfound goofy friends better than anything else at this point.

Um. I think I'm going to sleep now. I don't know what time I can pick up my car again, but hopefully it's sooner rather than later so I can watch The Punisher with Casey before I have to go to work <3<3
