That is what is written on the window cling I received from UAF said. I think I need to take that advice to heart. I really, really need to get a life!

Young Love [Jul. 29th, 2008|08:24 pm]

I was seventeen and in love. Cliche - I know. The funny part is, I didn't recognize as love until the very end. Someone once speculated that he was my soul mate. Soul mate or not, he was one of the very few men that I have actually fallen in love with. One of two actually. Almost every guy since then has been crap actually... Well, I recently found him on MySpace (ahh.. the glories of the internet). He is happily living his life in California and I am happy for him. I guess that little fantasy that some day we would meet and live happily ever after has died out. All I have is Johnny Depp know (who cares that he got married - something could happen). I genuinely am happy for him. It made me smile to read about his life now and see pictures of his family. If couldn't have him, I guess someone that could make him happy should.

New toy [Nov. 24th, 2007|12:46 am]

I did venture out today, although not at 4am. I got a new phone almost a month ago (after my cat ate two in a row). The guy convinced me to buy the LG Envy. It is the phone that flips up and has the full keyboard in it. That is pretty cool if you test a lot or if the $5 a month email plan worked with Gmail, which it doesn't. Otherwise, I really don't have a whole lot of uses for a full key board. There were also a few design flaws which were really bugging the hell out of me, like this: if you open up the phone for the convience of entering a new contact and then you want to call that contact because you are so excited you added them, so you close the phone and the menu clears out to the default. Urgg... it should stay where you were at, which is how it works in the other direction. The keys on the front were also not working for me. The down scroll was too close to the clear button so I would clear out when I was trying to scroll, which gets really annoying. So... Logan and I travelled to Bangor today so I could return it before my 30 days were up. I was a bit worried because I dropped and it had a dent, but it was doing some other wierd random things, so the decided to say the phone was defective and take it back. So... my choices were the LG Chocolate (which I have wanted since before it came out) and the Samsung SCH-u740. I did like the samsung and in black I thought it looked very grown up and professional. The menus were a pain though and when I asked about the unique hindge, the guy did say they could break if dropped (and I drop my phone all the time!). The screen had the same issues as the Envy though, but even more annoying. You would have it flipped open and you would get a message saying the feature was only available in the other position, so you would close it and reopen it and bam - back to beginning you were thrown. So I ended up with my pretty LG Black Cherry Chocolate. I do not think being pretty is a good reason to pick a cell phone, but so far I love it. I carried it around with my while I was doing laundry and listened to my music. Frivolous for a phone, but a very handy feature. My next phone will be the Prada phone, when I can afford it (it really is a nice phone, very sleek and simple).




Aww come on, ain't it pretty?

It is Thankgiving Day! I am giving thanks because the dorms are closed, which means no kids (other than my own) woohoo! I have my pumpkin pies baking in the oven and they smell mmm mmm good. I am making 4 pies since I misread the directions. Oops. I need to find someone to give two pies to because I certainly do no need to eat all four myself.

Happy Halloween everyone. Logan and I had a pretty good evening and Logan now has a pillowcase full of candy to munch on for the next week (if it lasts that long). We even dressed the dog up and made it a full family outting.

Red Sox Nation [Oct. 29th, 2007|12:38 am]

Yay! The Red Sox won the World Series. Honestly, it was a bit anti-climatic but that's ok. This means I can start getting sleep again! I thought the series was going to be really close and exciting. The Rookies really area a good team, I think the 8 day break really hurt them though. It took some time to get back into the rhythm. Anywho... now I can get to bed and sleep happily. . . .

I have just finished playing guitar hero with Ann for 4 hours straight. We rock and together we are guitar heros. I have also had a bit to drink and after the absolutely horrible week I have had - I am going to bed with a smiling on my face because I hit 97% of the notes, with 107 of those notes being in a row. Yay me! :) :) :)

Still here [Sep. 11th, 2007|09:37 pm]
icyinua
No - I am not dead, although there are moments when I kinda wish I were. This school has already been crazy. I quit my job. I was jobless for all of 2 hours before I caved and was convinced to stay. Now I am here half the time hating my job and half the time not minding it. I know I need to get out of here. This place isn't good for me. It makes me very negative. All I do it bitch, bitch, bitch all the time. I have started smoking again after 8 months with no cigarettes. So, in late January, the hunt begins. I will not get stuck here yet again.

A place to call home [Aug. 4th, 2007|09:16 pm]
icyinua
My place is starting to come together! I just bought a new used desk today. It is a corner desk with a hutch, so I have some space to put all my junk. My room looks nice, pictures to come soon. On the bad side - I found an infestation of ants in the kitchen. They are these itty bitty tiny brown ants. I don't think they are baby ants, I think they are a small type of ant. I discovered them when I went to put food in Dante's dish. It was completely covered in ants. How disgusting is that? I wanted to vomit. The worst part is I am not entire sure they weren't there when I had filled his bowl last.
