This year has gone well so far. It's the beginning of the second semester and I've already felt like I was going to die. 18 credit hours is definitely a challenge, but I'm going to prove those stupid advisors wrong, that I'm a freshman, and I CAN pass all my classes without breaking a sweat. I might break a little bit of one, but nothing too significant. School has been crazy, I've had one paper, one computer literacy assignment and three tests already, along with multiple quizzes. I just have to take each class one at a time and finish things according to when they're due. I've just taken everything in stride and have been able to keep up nicely. I hope that goes the same for the rest of the year.

I've found that I'm extremely happy here now. It may be due in part to the fact that John moved up here at the beginning of this semester, but I think it's also that I'm at a point in my life where I feel content. I don't feel as though I need more or less of one thing. I feel like Tallahassee is finally my home. I'm happy with my friends and I welcome more friends. I'm so excited to call people and ask them to hang out with me. I'm so excited to find out what people are up to and what their days have been like. It's such a good feeling. I also just feel good about myself. I know I'm not a perfect ten, but I know that I'm on the road to improvement. I'm trying to watch what I eat and eat healthier, while going to the gym and working out. I'm just HAPPY.

Living situations for next year: I've realized that I need to look into where I'm going to live, because I'm definitely not living in a dorm again. The original plan was to live with John, but I'm not sure if that's what I want to do right now. I think that it would be best for us to live separately for a little bit. I don't know. I kind of want my own things and my own bed set and my own place. The only other option I've been offered is to live with our friend Chase. Living with her would mean having to pay for different kinds of bills. With John I would only have to pay for utilities and internet and cable. So I don't know. I need to talk to my mom about it all and sort things out. I need to get a job first to determine what I can and can't pay for.

That brings up my mom's visit next weekend. I'm so excited that she's coming to visit. I have no idea why or what she's thinking, just randomly planning a trip to come see me, but hey, I'm not complaining. She's being kind of mysterious about it and not telling me everything about why she's coming. It's her birthday the Wed after Valentine's day so I don't know why she's surprising me. I should be surprising her. I'm planning on making her dinner and a chocolate cake for her birthday. Hmm...

I guess that's al for now.

Subject:A Tale of Two Universities
Time:12:09 am
Disclaimer: Before you read my entry, please note that I am in no way of being a racist, even though it may seem like it on this one night.

Once upon a time, there was a young beautiful girl, who decided to go to the seemingly wonderful Florida State University. However, in the same exact town or Tallahassee, there is one other university that is predonminately black, Florida A&M University. It just so happens that this very weekend is their homecoming weekend (aka black people of the world unite in Tallahasse). I feel like the smallest piece of dough in a predominately chocolate chip infested cookie. Can I tell you how annoying that is?
So, I'm trying to head to Livi's house and there is absolutely NO way of getting there. I mean NO possible way of getting anywher for that matter. Police everywhere, blockades everywhere, stupid dumbass people walking the streets...by the way...they are everywhere.
I want to go home now. Ugh!

So I finished the second week of school and I've been here for three weeks. Moving in was a lot of fun, yeah right. The dorm was pretty ugly, but once I brought in all my stuff and got settled, things got a lot better. My roommate is pretty cool. We are similar in some ways, yet extremely different in others. Anyway, I hope that we can get along well enough to get through the semester.
Classes are pretty good. I have two art classes, 2-d and Art Survey. Then I have math and English, which dont seem to be too hard. So I should be getting A's this fall. Knock on wood.
So this is the first weekend that I've stayed in Tally. Wow! I don't know what to do with myself. John is coming to town tonight. He doesn't get off of work until 9 or 10 so he won't be here until 1 or so in the morning. I don't care when he gets here as long as I'm hanging out with him. We're going to the football game tomorrow. It's going to be a blowout so I'm not too worried about seeing it or not. I just want to do something. Last weekend was the FSU vs. Miami game, which is the one I wish I went to. It was so fucking awesome. We totally kicked their asses. SO FUCK YOU MIAMI!!! It was the first time we had beat them in like 6 years.
So back to John. I'm excited that he's coming. I can't wait for him to get here. I wish he didn't have to work. I hate his work. I don't really because he works with some of the coolest people, but I had his manager for working him like a dog. He just doesn't ever really ask off and it pisses me off. I wish he would just ask off a whole weekend without having to work one day of those two or three. It just sucks. I'm lucky he's even coming up at all. So whatever, I'm happy.

So I'm an official Florida State student. It's so cool. I have my I.D., bank account, checks, and everything. I recieved my housing information and my roommate lives just across the bay. I haven't called her yet but I think after I come back from Michigan I might try to get together with her. Or just touch base to see what she's bringing with her. I'm really excited to live there. I don't know when classes start exactly but Convocation is August 21st. That's like graduation in reverse.
John is going to come up in January and enroll for the Spring semester. I'm going to move in with him when he gets there. I'm so excited to decorate and get furniture and bedding and all that other great stuff. I can't wait. It'll be so fun to just cuddle on the couch and watch TV together or just eat dinner at home and make breakfast in the morning. I'm so excited! I LOVE HIM!!!!
Alright I'm done.

Well I;m most likely going to Florida State. I already applied for housing and paid the advanced payment. All I need to do is pay the acceptance deposit. Next weekend my mom and I are going up to Tallahassee to visit and take a tour of the campus and dorms. I can't wait. We're also going to look at places for my mom to stay. She might move up there with me or she might be moving to North Carolina. She's going up there with my uncle the weekend after FSU. FSU would my best bet because John might go up there as well and we could live together. I don't know, we'll figure it out as it gets closer.
The next big thing to worry about is prom. I have my dress. I need to book and appointment for my hair and nails. Also my friends and I need to think about a limo and hotel room. Prom is going to be at the Colleseum. I can't wait. It's going to be so nice. Then Grad Nite comes up after that and all the seniors get to go to Disney World and spend the night there hanging out. Ciara is going to be there as well as some other rap artists. It's going to be so much fun.
John's going away this weekend. He's going to Orlando and Daytona with the boys. Our friend Jason is is going into the Navy at the end of the month so they wanted to do something big before he left. They're going to Universal and Bikeweek in Daytona. So I'm going to miss him. I'm not going to get to hag out with him on his birthday, which is Saturday. He's turning twenty. I can't believe it!

What do you do each weekend when all around you is hurricaning? Absolutely nothing, which has been the extent of my excitement for the past month. There was Charley, then Frances, now Ivan, and next week there will be Jeanne. I'm sick of damn hurricanes. Last weekend we had a 5-day weekend because of Frances. Whatever.
So Carlos came back from Portugal tonight. I'm so excited. It's been three months since I've seen him. He called me tonight and it was so great talking to him. I can't wait until this weekend to hang out with him, but I have a paper due next week so I have to get started on that. This month is going to be costly, so is next month.
My monthly expenses:
Sept 24-27: FSU game weekend. John, Sarah, Carlos, Vira, Josh, Chrissy, Ann, and me are all going up to Tallahassee for the game. It's going to be baller! I have saved up $100 so far.
Oct 2: MY 18th BIRTHDAY!!! Ya Whoo! and Homecoming...I need to buy a dress that is suitable for homecoming and going to the clubs because you know I'm going to Ybor on Saturday. So that'll be $50-$100 for my dress and about $20 for Homecoming ticket.
Oct 11: Taking Back Sunday concert around $15-$20 per ticket
Oct 23: Last Damn Show concert around $20 a ticket
From Sept 1-Oct 31: Halloween Horror Nights which is around $50 per ticket. I want to go because I didn't go last year.
On top of all the fun I need to pay for car insurance ($150) plus my cell phone bill ($50). So for my birthday, all I want is MONEY!

Excitement means I'm happy. I'm getting a new phone this week. Our plan is cancelled and I'm going to buy my most favorite phone ever....MY SAMSUNG FLIP PHONE! I'm excited, but I have to pay for the bill every month which means I need to start making some money. I'm going to be broke off my ass pretty soon here. I'm so not looking forward to spending all this money. Bleh!

Subject:A waste of a weekend
Time:06:42 pm
Current Mood:boredbored
So Saturday I went to work and came home to take a nap before I went out. What did I do? Sleep until 4 in the am. I was so pissed. I wasted a perfectly good Saturday night. I guess it's good that I don't have to work this weekend or else I might fuck up another one. I was so pissed.
So today I had two tests: English vocab and Spanish ch. 1
I think I did well on the English vocab test but I got a C on my Spanish test. I'm so pissed at that too. But it's gay to have a test the day you get back from a hurricane. Obviously no one remembered anything. So I have to reassess because I don't want that as my first grade in the gradebook.
So this weekend I saw thre movies, Alien Vs Predator, Collateral, and Napolean Dynamite. The latter being the funniest. It was so stupid I just couldn't help but laugh. Gosh.
I have so much homework.
The end.
