  ha.. i forgot this still existed.

ugh.. i hate cleaning up after those messy old queens.   
07:33pm 27/02/2007
  i just booked my flight for ASB so i guess that means im really going.
i've been on a roll this year with actually doing things that i talk about doing rather than just talk about them for a long time and then forget about it. yeah. so im proud of myself for that.

i wish i had someone to make out with always.
where all the good lookin' boys at?
oh, just kidding! (not really)

annywho.. i have a lot to update about because i havent in forever but i just dont feel like it. also im tired and i think im going to sleep so i can go work out before my 8 am class tomorrow because i dont have time to before work.

au revoir

  its been a pretty eventful week. or two weeks.
semester 2 started on the 22nd.
i like my classes.
not as much as i did last semester,
but i think my grades will be a lot better this time around because my schedule isnt so crazy.
im taking creative writing, art history, studio art and some required math course (my first math class since junior year).
i only have class monday wednesday and friday leaving tuesday and thursday open for me to work..

which brings me to...

my new job,
i started life guarding at the eastside Y on saturday.
sooo much better than stupid CCR.
its sweet to have to wear shorts and a t-shirt to work instead of a skirt, button down shirt, vest, bow tie and apron.

friday night thom and i tried to see my sister's band play in ithaca
but my car broke down in interlaken (14 miles outside of ithaca)
(car broke down at 8pm)
we had a crazy adventure in the middle of no where
then we + car got picked up at a gas station by the tow truck around 1am
the driver was awesome. his name was tim. he can parallel park ANYTHING, ANYWHERE.
my car is not so awesome, however.
it needs a new engine a.k.a i need to buy a new car
so that sucks.

the same day i found out about my car, i got thiis e- mail:

Dear Kristin,

Congratulations! On behalf of United Way of Southwest Louisiana, I'm excited to inform you that your application to ASB 2007 has been accepted! As part of a team of young people from across the country, you'll be helping to rebuild lives and communities impacted by Hurricane Rita in Southwest Louisiana. We're looking forward to working with you.

thats right, i am officially part of MTVs Alternative Spring Break. ( http://national.unitedway.org/asb/ )
so im not too bummed about the car thing because that made me really happy.
i can't wait.

thats all i can think of for now.

  i love hot chocolate and sex and the city. episodes with mr. big make me especially happy, he's just so.. charming (and i bet he would be an excellent lovah).

i've been sick for the past few days and its sucked. i completely slept through wednesday and thursday.

today i woke up at noon when liz called me to tell me she got a job at panera. after that i that decided maybe i should get out of bed and hand in my application.

i start training on sunday, au revoir CCR.

im not 100% excited about working there but it definitely beats the country club. i think im going to keep looking for a different job.. but maybe i'll find out that i actually like it there and stick it out for a while. at least ill be working with liz.

i really wish that i would just find a job that i like with people that i like and be able to stay with it until i finish at MCC. or i wish that my parents would pay for everything and i wouldnt even need a job, that would be choice.

if i could breathe out of my nose i would go to the gym.. but instead im just going to sit here and be fat.

ive been so busy for so the past few months i really cant deal with being on break. its driving me absolutely nuts.
04:59pm 30/12/2006
  im so over this whole break thing..
im bored
and fat
it would be sweet if it would snow because i would really like to go sledding.

brief update:

christmas wasnt very exciting. i dont even know why my family celebrates it anymore because none of us believe in it.

i passed all of my classes.. i was totally doubting. my GPA kinda sucks though.

my sister had a recital yesterday and i narrated ferdinand the bull. i thought i was going to vomit, but then i got over it and it was really fun.. and everyone thought i was hilarious.

right now im watching V for Vendetta and it makes me really want a british accent.

i hung out with zac walker the other day.. i dont really remember what day it was.. i think it was wednesday. but that was cool because he lives in east rochester and i had no idea.

um.. i though i had things to write about but then i realized that i didnt.

the end.

so im really looking for a new hair cut. im tired of being boring. i want short hair but not the kind that flips out, but the kind that is choppy and cute.. i also want a ton of hilights and not as much lowlites. i can see it in my head. but im also really skinny in my head when i picture this too.. so maybe that means i have to loose like 600 pounds before i get my hair did so i dont look like a big creep.

but maybe ill just deal with being a fatty and go with it.


swimming makes my entire body hurt.
it's not even that hard, im just really out of shape.

i think i want to go vegan again because my skin looks awful.

i meant for this to be a positive entry but i guess thats not working out so well, is it?

mood: exhausted
i am exhausted.

getting back into the pool after 2 years is extraordinarily hard. it's really frustrating to be so out of shape, but im pushing myself and my coach is super encouraging so hopefully it wont be as long before i am ready for more intense training.

school is going really well so far. my classes are great. my professors are amazing. i love Dr. B, she is one of the greatest people i have ever met, i think tomorrow i'll go hang out in her office on my break. also, im keeping up with all of my work and i havent missed any classes, which is not typical pour moi.

im starting to get comfortable at the country club, everyone i work with (minus the dishwashers) is great + liz started last week which should be fun. i dont like parties so much but thats just because i hate walking around with trays of crab cakes or cheese puffs that nobody wants to eat. i think im going to have my own tables in a la carte tomorrow, im kind of nervous but i think i can handle it, i just dont know how i am going to feel about work right after practice. i guess we'll see how it goes.

i miss hanging out with molly all the time, but im glad we're both doing something with our lives, this time last year the world had pretty much ended. it was fun when she lived with me though, i wont lie.. getting trashy at 4 on a sunday was one of the better days last fall.

im sloooowly starting to make some new friends at school, but i dont really have time to hang out so i dont really mind that my social life isnt picking up.

i havent drank since early august and i dont really want to anytime soon.

on friday i dont have to work or go to practice annnnnnd copeland is playing at water street. im picking up the lovely nora brophy after school and i think meeting molly and her cousin at my house (???) before the show and meeting up with tess when we get there. it should be a good time. im positive it will be.

that is all, i think.. the end.

  i went to RIT tonight to drop off another book that came in the mail for my brother. i ended up hanging out for a while and had a lot of fun. i must say, i am thoroughly impressed, steves friends are really great and they actually get him to go out. and one boy named elliott is pretty cute. after hanging out at crystal beach and the brentwood its nice to hang out with boys that dont smell.

i blew off work again today and im not going to go tomorrow or sunday because ill be at my moms friends cabin near old forge. im excited to see ashley.. and hopefully kayak if the weather allows.

iiiiim super tired. so goodnight.

  why is it that all the good concerts are in buffalo and toronto??
not fair.
everyone come to rochester, right now.

i will most defiantly make a point to go see jenny lewis in buffalo i dont know about anything else though.

i decided not to go to work today and i probably wont go tomorrow
or the weekend... and by then the pool will be closed and ill probably be fired but thats ok because its not really worth it anymore. im starting at the country club soon anyway so ill just enjoy my last few days of summer until class starts on tuesday.

i really need some coffee right now, oh and some friends who don't disappear for weeks at a time, that would be choice.

  my brother moved into his dorm room today.
its funny, RIT is only 15 minutes away but it feels like a big change.
im sure it will be for him.
who knows.. i might just end up missing the kid.

party last night wasnt as big as my mom had hoped but it was a good time. my neighbors from across the street came over for a while and the oldest boy is pretty cute... just as i had suspected.

i dont know whats wrong with me lately but i hate being up past 9 and i get really upset if i cant go to sleep on time. it's weird.

i need to go for a run soon i think, i found this website (www.mapmyrun.com) where you can plot out your route and see how many miles it is.. its pretty sweet because i dont really know any of the roads yet and havent really been out to explore them yet. and ive mapped out all the routes ive done since 6th grade lol its kind of fun.

im going to go do that now i think.

saddest story ever .. i think   
10:00pm 19/08/2006
  The sun was shining on the sea,
Shining with all his might;
He did his very best to make
The billows smooth and bright—
And this was odd, because it was
The middle of the night.

The moon was shining sulkily,
Because she thought the sun
Had got no business to be there
After the day was done—
"It's very rude of him," she said,
"To come and spoil the fun!"

The sea was wet as wet could be,
The sands were dry as dry.
You could not see a cloud, because
No cloud was in the sky;
No birds were flying overhead—
There were no birds to fly.

The Walrus and the Carpenter
Were walking close at hand;
They wept like anything to see
Such quantities of sand.
"If this were only cleared away,"
They said, "it would be grand!"

"If seven maids with seven mops
Swept it for half a year,
Do you suppose," the Walrus said,
"That they could get it clear?"
"I doubt it," said the Carpenter,
And shed a bitter tear.

"O Oysters, come and walk with us!"
The Walrus did beseech.
"A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk,
Along the briny beach;
We cannot do with more than four,
To give a hand to each."

The eldest Oyster looked at him,
But never a word he said;
The eldest Oyster winked his eye,
And shook his heavy head—
Meaning to say he did not choose
To leave the oyster-bed.

But four young Oysters hurried up,
All eager for the treat;
Their coats were brushed, their faces washed,
Their shoes were clean and neat—
And this was odd, because, you know,
They hadn't any feet.

Four other Oysters followed them,
And yet another four;
And thick and fast they came at last,
And more, and more, and more—
All hopping through the frothy waves,
And scrambling to the shore.

The Walrus and the Carpenter
Walked on a mile or so,
And then they rested on a rock
Conveniently low;
And all the little Oysters stood
And waited in a row.

"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
And cabbages—and kings—
And why the sea is boiling hot—
And whether pigs have wings."

"But wait a bit," the Oysters cried,
"Before we have our chat;
For some of us are out of breath,
And all of us are fat!"
"No hurry!" said the Carpenter.
They thanked him much for that.

"A loaf of bread," the Walrus said,
"Is what we chiefly need;
Pepper and vinegar besides
Are very good indeed—
Now if you're ready, Oysters dear,
We can begin to feed."

"But not on us!" the Oysters cried,
Turning a little blue.
"After such kindness, that would be
A dismal thing to do!"
"The night is fine," the Walrus said,
"Do you admire the view?"

"It was so kind of you to come!
And you are very nice!"
The Carpenter said nothing but
"Cut us another slice.
I wish you were not quite so deaf—
I've had to ask you twice!"

"It seems a shame," the Walrus said,
"To play them such a trick,
After we've brought them out so far,
And made them trot so quick!"
The Carpenter said nothing but
"The butter's spread too thick!"

"I weep for you," the Walrus said;
"I deeply sympathize."
With sobs and tears he sorted out
Those of the largest size,
Holding his pocket-handkerchief
Before his streaming eyes.

"O Oysters," said the Carpenter,
"You've had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again?"
But answer came there none—
And this was scarcely odd, because
They'd eaten every one.

  i havent been this happy about everything in a long time.
things are far from perfect, but perfect would be boring.

party on thursday night was very fun and very drunk. i love the people i work with (but i hate my job) i think we are all hanging out again tomorrow night. p.s: drinking and hot tubs are a bad idea.

my family camp out was fabulous. dustin is one of the greatest people in the world. i love hanging out with my cousins because they are all like me except a lot different. all night campfires make my clothes smell bad but i dig them anyway. its fun to watch bats fly out of bat houses. when there are no clocks i wake up at 5 30am and its weird.

i went home with my sister sunday night so that i could buy her car from her, it was really boring while she was at work so i walked to the commons around 11 (and i fell in the middle of the street on my way there because my shoes have no traction and roads are more slippery than sidewalks) and went to her work where she introduced me to the bar tender as her older sister (ha) and bought me a drink. snow martini's are my new favorite. i skipped work this morning and i registered my(!) car. im pumped.

on my way home i stopped at the pool to get my paycheck. erica and jason were bored so they decided to close early and erica and i went out to dinner and to the mall. i picked out my laptop and i pod and everything. i cant wait until my student loan comes in so i can give it all to the mac store. oh so pretty. so excited. woot.

i guess thats all i feel like writing for now. goodnight.
06:57pm 09/08/2006
mood: psyched
sometimes i have no choice but to adore my mom. she defiantly had the new flaming lips cd in the disk drive of her laptop. cute.

i do, however, not adore the financial aid office at MCC not even a little, not even at all. i spend my life on hold waiting to talk to them for two minutes so they can tell me they lost something i faxed over three weeks ago. stupid. i will go in tomorrow and fix everything.

its been a good day though.. i didnt have to work and my gap order came in.

last night i went to javas with rosalie and nate derby. i love hanging out with rosalie, i really hate that we grew apart but i think that things are finally good again.

work has been really boring as usual. kyle chapman visited yesterday for about an hour and the woman with a bird voice yelled at him not to be sarcastic when he was leaving. ha. tomorrow emily is having a party and she invited all of the guards. ive never really hung out with any of them outside of work, it should be fun but i have a feeling something weird is going to happen. eh.. i'm sure it will be fine. im really interested to see what goes down actually.. i think kevin may be crushing on emily just a little, aka a lot. hmm.

alllso, im pretty psyched for the family camp out this weekend. i havent gone the past in 2 years because i dont usually like spending that much time in the car with my family. but its the last time i'll get to see my cousin becky before she goes to china to teach for the next two years and i havent seen dustin in forever, i think since i was a sophomore. oh yeah its supposed to be a really good weekend for meteor showers. im excited. i love camping.

oh yeah, i miss liz.

mood: blah
so the weather today was pretty gross. i loved it. it was a much needed break from the heat. it threatened to rain all morning, and it misted for a while.. but not enough to close the pool. jessica and i spent the majority of our shift swimming in the pool.. and the rest of the time making things out of supplies we raided from the club house kitchen.

i made:

a phone with two cups and some string

"kevin's best friend" aka a styrofoam cup filled with dirt and grass and a dead bug i found in the skimmer basket

"ben's (second) favorite wood chip" aka a styrofoam cup with a wood chip from the playground


jessica made a sweet set of two way radios out of styrofoam cups

then we collaborated and made a romantic dinner consisting of paper plates that we decorated to look like food and some really phallic paper candles (to set the mood, duh. we taped everything to the table and cleaned up juuuust in time for ben and kevin to come in for the afternoon shift. they loved it?

oh and i found some really sweet yellow boots that were 17 sizes too big and came up to my knees in the pump room and wore those on the pool deck. and everywhere else i happened to go. sometimes i like my job. mostly i dont though.

im pretty bored.. that seems to be the story of my life lately.

it's snowing in south africa, i saw it on the weather channel.
