YUP

I just got an email that said my 9 o'clock class has been cancelled. I just got my digital camera in the mail. Days like this would be awesome and celebrated more if I didn't have such a big headache and lots of calculus homework. Still I shouldn't complain because everything else is going well.

WELL WELL.

So life has been going excellent! I am making all A's so far (including calculus). My jobs are going well and I am keeping busy and healthy. My sugars are back under control and I won't have to get back on insulin. All of the stress is gone and I have nothing to complain about.

Tonight I saw everyone and their dog at the Battle of the Bands. Kelly and Gabe were the only ones that I knew were going for sure because we had been talking about it for a few days. I invited Chris and Kelsea, who did come. AJ and Kate were there, so nice for you guys to come around. I saw hippie Brian (who I hadn't seen since last semester). Phil was there, of course. What's a good show without Philster? Hmm who else was there? Oscar, Eamon (sp?), Michelle and her boyfriend Tony, Toni (this girl I know from blanco), Paige, Topher, TJ, Adam, and Jeff.

I even made a new friend. This guy named Drew saw my shirt and came up to talk to me. I was wearing my new Matchbook Romance shirt and he said that he had seen me around before and what not. He wants to get together sometime and maybe go to a show with me or something. He seems cool. I told him about the Matchbook show last night. I won't say what I said to him because I plan on dedicating a post to it like I normally do with concerts.

When Uh-Huh Jackson played I asked Kelly to go out and dance with me and Kelsea ended up joining us later in the song. It was so much fun. Too bad if you weren't there. I bet you're jealous too.

There were two highlights of the night that have to be mentioned.
1. Gabe was totally dancing to the band that played after Uh-Huh Jackson while wearing a Scorpions shirt. (I guess it was one of those "you had to be there" situations. It was funny mainly because of the kind of music that it was.)
2. Uh-Huh Jackson totally got first place. That's right. They are awesome. (Brandon hugged me. He is way hot and that just had to be mentioned. He winked at kelly before that though. *sighs* He is just so dreamy.)

LIBERATING

Today was a crazy/interesting/awesome day. As I write this, I have one of the biggest grins on my face. I shall start at the beginning.

My parents came in today at like 12-ish and we went to austin to have lunch with Adrian. We went and ate at this rocking place called Rudy's Bar-b-q. The best part was their slogan, "the worst bar-b-q in texas." Pssh. Whatever. It was obviously freaking awesome or I wouldn't mention it. Supposedly those are everywhere, but this was my first time ever being to one. Thank god I finally did too because it was so worth it.

We went to Academy. I got some new flip-flops and running shoes. We went to Wal-mart where I got a shitload of things including a new printer, a bunch of other small things and groceries.

I called Kelly to come over and hang with me when she got back from Houston because I missed her that much. She got to experience the hilarity of my mother and it was awesome. When my parents left Kelly and I went to Best Buy with this guy named Chris that lives down the hall from me.

Chris is possibly going to be the bigger part of my day that I am going to continue to ramble about. (Just to give you fair warning.) He and I were finally introduced properly yesterday at bobcat day when I asked him to show his room to the people that were taking tours. He asked me if I wanted to hang out with him today and I told him I would after my parents left.

We went and bought the director's cut of Donnie Darko (at Best Buy) and then we kinda watched it while I helped Kate with her math homework. He left in the middle of the movie because I was going back and forth between rooms. I can see his reasoning for leaving so soon. I guess it would get kind of annoying that I wasn't really paying attention.

After Kate left I went to the coffee pot with my Kelly, Phil, and Gabe where I met Phil's friend Jazz and her boyfriend Shawn? I think that's his name. Anyway I asked Gabe to bring me back because I was tired and he was too so it made sense to leave. Kelly stayed back with Phil. So I came back early with the intention of going to sleep but that obviously didn't happen because I am up posting and it is currently 1:05am.

When I got back to my room I saw a note on my board that said "Wino 4 ever." I figured it was from Chris seeing as how we had just purchased wine for him earlier. So I went over to check on him and he was drunk and talking about going to the river and he begged me to come.

I finally gave in but only because I didn't want his death on my conscience if he would have done something crazy to kill himself. So we went to the river at like 12-ish I guess. Random, ay? We can just say that I was his lifeguard for the time being. I must say that it was quite entertaining to watch him jump off of the bridge twice and off of a big vine like 4 times. I would have probably joined him if I wasn't so cold but shit happens.

He has to be the worst actor in the world though. He tried doing one of those, "ah, help me!" things to get me in the water but he sucks and I knew it. After his little river charade we had some interesting conversations and some interesting things happened (nothing that you think though). We talked about his tatoos; we talked about my piercings, and many other things. I'm having so many mixed emotions about him but in a good way I guess. *shrugs* I don't know but whatever.

I think I have blabbed enough and if I keep going you will probably stop mid-way. So I bid you all a good night.

[INSERT WITTY TITLE HERE]

First things first. Kelsea has to put down my favorite attention whore dog. Let us all take a moment to bow our heads for our dear yoshi. *bows head* Sorry, kelz. That dog rocked.

Redundant is the word I'm looking for. I think. Yes. That's it. That's the word....Redundant. I've just had some familiar feelings about some things recently. Nothing too bad. Just stuff.

If you read the post before this then you already know. I'm back on my diet. I'm so sick of staying at the same weight. I'm happy that I haven't gained any but I haven't lost any either and I workout every freaking day. Enough about that though. I've already talked about this stuff before. I don't need to be redundant with my posts because that is just way too much redundancy within my recent redundant life. *grins*

So yes, I am sitting here blogging at
12:04am. "Why aren't you out partying, Liz?" Well, I'm on-call. Yep it sucks but I don't really mind it too much. I like having my solitary moments. It's good to sit back, relax, and contemplate on my many wonders of my redundant life. (Fine, I'll stop with that word because after a while it becomes way to redundant. For real, I am so done using that word in this post...seriously.)

I watched Numb3rs with Kelly earlier. Surprisingly she enjoyed that show. For those of you who know Kelly know that she -hates- math. Today when we had our ACLU meeting I was trying to pull out some blank paper and accidentally pulled out calculus notes. Kelly pushed them away and was disgusted at the sight of them. It was quite comical.

Speaking of math! I made a 99 on my first calculus test. There were a lot of people pissed off at me because there was only a one point curve but those fuckers should've studied.

Anyway, that show Numb3rs is awesome. It really is amazing the way that they incorporate math into those cases. After the show Kelly and I went to wake up the infamous Gabe (who she has now abandoned me for). They went to a party or something. *shrugs* For the next 31 hours I have sold my soul to being isolated in this residence hall.

As of seven in the morning on Sunday I will not be on-call anymore. I asked for that day off because my parents are coming to spoil me. They are going to buy me a printer and anything else that I need. I heart them a lot. w00t!

I should probably sleep because my life has been so hectic and busy lately but I just got my new book in the mail! I might read a little after I straighten up my room and do my dishes. I swear I am probably one of the cleanest/organized people that you will -ever- meet but I absolutely positively hate doing dishes. Whatever. I am so over that. I am so over this post as well.

SO WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?

You know what you need to do, liz. You know what you should do but there's one question.

Are you going to do it?

~

I have no choice.

I carry too much pride on my shoulders.

I'm back on my diet.

GEEZ-US CRY-ST

Man, I am so freaking pissed off. My sugars have been freaking out on me. I'm hoping that I don't have to get back on shots because I worked my ass off to get off of them. I've still been working my ass off to stay off of them and all of a sudden they're fucking up on me.

Yesterday when I woke up they were 184. I ate with kelly at Harris and I had a salad and two boiled eggs. Right after that I checked my sugars and they were 312. Yesterday I walked all over this campus and then went swimming. Before I got here I went and ate with kelly and I had a sandwhich and a salad. When I went to sleep yesterday at 9:30pm they were at 266 even after all of that activity! Also all that I drank yesterday was water. Nothing else.

I haven't had them that high since the beginning of the summer. I talked to my dad about it and he told me that it's possible that it's just because my stress level is really high right now. I work out all the freaking time and I eat right so there is no reason for them to be out of control like this.

When kelsea came over last night she told me that it could be hormonal also. I think that could also be another factor as well. My stress level is really high because I have a test at one today, a cal test tomorrow at 10, passives due by midnight tomorrow, and flyers due by wednesday. Plus that time of the month should be soon like tomorrow or today soon.

I also stress about my weight a lot. I haven't really been losing any except the 5 that I gained over the break but I am back where I was after I lost all that weight over the summer. Hopefully Allie can help me out with that. I'm thinking that maybe I'll do the diet again. I don't know what to do.

When I woke up at two this morning to study some more my sugars went from 266 to 165. Which is a lot better but since I have been sitting here studying for the past two hours they have gone back up to 225. What the fuck? I haven't even done anything to provoke something like that happening. All I have had is water. Is there sugar in ozarka? If there is there will be a lawsuit.


It probably isn't helping that I'm stressing out about this too, but my health has been so important to me in the past year because I don't want to be like my dad and I -really- don't want to go back to shots. I just hope this is all better when everything is over and done with for the week. If not, I'm going to work my ass off 5 times harder than I am now.

I'm going to take a walk to de-stress and then study some more. I hope this will get better. Have any of you guys noticed anything in my eating patterns or anything that might be causing this? Let me know if you have/do. I would appreciate it bunches.

LET'S SEE

How many times have you done this?
Umm maybe this is the...first?
Oh my god.
OH my God.
OH MY GOD!
Dum dum dum dum.

You see.

TO ALL OF YOU...

Grammar Nazis *coughs* Kelly *coughs* this one is for you because everyone else knows that spelling is bullshit.

I heard about this in my communications class last semester. Just read it.

I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg The
phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde
Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny

can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is
bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a
wlohe. Amzanig huh?

So you can fuck off, grammar nazis and hoes. *grins*

I NEVER WANTED...

to be different.
I just wanted to be myself.

The little bit of catholic that I have left in me has decided to give something up for lent. Lent is all about sacrificing something that would make you a better person. I don't give a shit about that though. Instead I am going to do something or a few things that will help my health.


I told Kelly earlier that I would give up riding the bus. I think that's a good one. I ride the bus practically everyday from the quad to the student center to avoid that big ass hill and then I'll walk to my dorm from there. I was thinking about giving up elevators too but that isn't going to happen. I have a few things in JCK this semester that are on the tenth floor. I will -not- truck my ass up 10 flights. I barely did it a couple of times in Jackson last year and I lived on the 9th floor.


Holy shit. Jackson! Those were the days. Jackson was awesome.

Anyway, Other than just giving up the bus I will also give up eating fried foods and on top of that I'm still not drinking. By "fried foods" I mean anything deep-fried. Anything from chicken strips and nuggets (which I freaking love) to french-fries are off limits for the next 40 days starting tomorrow. This means that commons meals are pretty much going to be nothing but salads. Sad thing is that the only good thing to eat at commons -are- the chicken strips. *shrugs* I'll get over it.

See? I'm already over it. My dad is giving up cussing. What a dumbass. We'll see how that goes. *laughs* I tried that shit last year and it didn't work. Let's just say that I get my cussing habit from my dad. *nods* He won't last.

In the words of Katie, "Liz, don't be such a negative nancy." Fuck you and your alliterations. I was the master at alliterations in high school English and yours suck.

HEADACHES AND BEING BUMMED

[Allister - "Scratch"]
I guess this is where I tell you that I don't give a fuck about posting this. Sometimes these journals exist just to vent. Sometimes they're here when you don't really know what to say to some people even when you're the type of person that confronts everyone.

First, I think I should be polite and think of others. Nicole, I hope that you feel better. I hope that everything works out for you too. Like I -always- say, everything happens for a reason. So if things don't go your way then it will turn out okay in the end.

[Dave Matthews Band - "Busted Stuff"]
I think that today was the day that karma decided to fuck with me. When I woke up everything was fine. I had breakfast, I played with my new phone, I posted flyers, and I worked out. It wasn't until I got done with 3/4 of my day that things started getting shitty.

I wish for just once I could be the one on the other side. I want to have the boyfriend and tell my friends one thing and then do something completely different. I want to be the one to make plans with someone on friday for sunday and then not remember or answer my phone.

[Allister - "Jacob Thinks I'm Gay"]
Sorry, I can't do those things. I wish I could though. Maybe you don't know this but it hurts more than you think. I don't understand how some people can hang out with you -every- freaking day and when they get a boyfriend all it becomes is the occasional lunch.

Whatever, it's fine. It's always gonna be fine. I'll be in this mood for a little while and then realize that I'm being too "emo" about the situation.

[Incubus - "Clean"]
So karma fucked with me but only because I "blew off" Jason, right? Yeah it was wrong of me to do what I did but he didn't even want to cooperate with me. All I asked him was to change the time and he just had to have his way. If anything he was the one who technically called it off because he didn't want to change the time. So why should I have to put up with this, karma? It's because I'm a bitch, right? Well, fuck off.

To top this off I think I lost the chapstick that Rene gave me yesterday. "Geez, it's just chapstick, Liz." Fuck you, it means more than that.

[Radiohead - "Talk Show Host"]
I guess there was one more thing that kinda upset me today. Kelly mentioned today at breakfast that we're Valentine-less. That's the kind of thing that had never bothered me before though. So why now?

There will always be those questions that linger in the back of your head. Why do you feel like crap about being without a Valentine? Why is that you're making a big deal out of this? Why is that you always have to make people feel like shit about these things? Why is that you can't hold it in and not let it get to you? Why do headaches exist? Why do you feel fatter than usual even though you've lost 7 pounds? Why do you have to make long posts? Most importantly why are you fucking crying?

[Something Corporate - "Konstantine"]
FUCK! I just hit my fucking elbow and it hurts like a bitch! Why don't I just get poisoned by a snake now? We all know that's my biggest fear.

I'll stop bitching now. I'll leave it to you to talk about this post to everyone else in our "posse" about how I'm overreacting, a bitch, and stupid. I'll leave it to you to talk about my flaws with everyone and their mom but hide it from me.

In other news, I've blown most of my money. I bought some new pants, a poster, and damn cute phone, some pins, a much needed swimsuit and goggles. I don't know how I spent all of that money so fast but it's cool. I needed to get rid of it. Hopefully I can get a digital camera and an Ipod soon.

I guess I am going to try and sleep this all away. First I'm going to have to do some paperwork and homework. We'll call this the highlight of my day.

KILL ME QUICKLEY

I still haven't had the time to get my concert post done. I'm still working on it but today has been incredibly busy. I'm at the desk right now. I should be doing some more calculus but that shit gives me an achehead after a while.

This morning I had lab and work as usual. My mother called me and said that my check came in and decided that she would bring it to me. I went to the bank and bought a whole bunch of shit. I bought Labrynth, Harold and Kumar, and Without a paddle. I also bought more CDRs and who knows what else.

Soon enough I will have my guitar. Phil and Gabe are supposedly going to help me get one in Austin. We'll see how that goes though. Hopefully we can do that next weekend. I'll be at home this weekend and then the Superbowl is on Sunday. Duh. Don't worry I'll be back on Saturday night for the pimps and hoes party. Hopefully I'll be the only "poe" there.

Oh yeah and by the way...

Look at me *waves her arms around*...dabber dabber...I'm chris. I suck. I wear the same 3 pairs of pants. I own 5 shirts. I have no life. I play video games -all- the freaking time. I just recently discovered what a haircut is.

I Would just like to say that Chris Boehm is an asshole. End of fucking story.

I DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND

The awkwardness sets in as the bees begin to swarm.
How could something so beautiful feel so wrong?
This may not be easy for you.
It won't be easy for me either.
But I'll weigh you down.
I'll watch you choke.

BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP...

I just wanted to say that John Nolan is beautiful.

The concert was awesome and like always I was so close that I could taste the sweat. I plan on letting you in on everything when I have the energy to do so. For now, good night.

FUCK

Everything is looking good. I am going to fix that picture though. I am going to cut out all of the extra white so you can see the rest of the music notes. Also I need to get my comments working. Other than that I think everything is fine.

If there are any suggestions let me know. Most of you know how to get a hold of me. Peace.

ONCE MORE...

A template change. I have two and a half hours at work of nothing. So what better than a template change? I didn't bring homework with me. I'm going swimming after this. I've read ever blog/xanga/journal already and I'm bored.

Here is your warning...
If something isn't working properly then it means I'm still working on it. I don't need you getting all bitchy with me either. I am plenty myself.

Peace out.
