You're unsure if I am a loose end or a strand
that waits for you to mend or understand
A few words
"When we describe the Moon as dead, we are describing the deadness in ourselves. When we find space so hideously void, we are describing our own unbearable emptiness."
~ D.H. Lawrence

"Is the meaning of life defined by its duration? Or does life have a purpose so large that it doesn't have to be prolonged at any cost to preserve its meaning?"

"Living is not good, but living well. The wise man, therefore, lives as well as he should, not as long as he can... He will always think of life in terms of quality not quantity... Dying early or late is of no relevance, dying well or ill is... even if it is true that while there is life there is hope, life is not to be bought at any cost."
~ Seneca

"People will tell you nothing matters, the whole world's about to end soon anyway. Those people are looking at life the wrong way. I mean, things don't need to last forever to be perfect."
~ Daydream Nation

"All Bette's stories have happy endings. That's because she knows where to stop. She's realized the real problem with stories-- if you keep them going long enough, they always end in death."
~ The Sandman: Preludes & Nocturnes

"The road now stretched across open country, and it occurred to me - not by way of protest, not as a symbol, or anything like that, but merely as a novel experience - that since I had disregarded all laws of humanity, I might as well disregard the rules of traffic. So I crossed to the left side of the highway and checked the feeling, and the feeling was good. It was a pleasant diaphragmal melting, with elements of diffused tactility, all this enhanced by the thought that nothing could be nearer to the elimination of basic physical laws than deliberately driving on the wrong site of the road."
~ Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

"It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend."
~ William Blake

Okay so I went to the foam party tonight, which was basically like a dance outside but there was this inflatable arena type thing with a foam jet hooked up to it, and wow how am I going to talk about it....

So we were waiting in line to get in and this guy comes up to me and asks me where I got my glowstick bracelet. I told him like, at the carnival, because they gave them to us.

At this point I was like "oh okay I guess he's just curious" because um... guys really don't approach me in real life. Ever. Except for the time or directions.

He left, no big deal, it was another small occurrence in a sea of such.

Casey and I then entered the foam party area and climbed into the foam pit. :P

The same guy from before showed up and like, talked with us about stuff, and asked me my name, and I can't even keep track of what happened...

But basically he like, picked me up and carried me into the really foam-intense area and I got covered in it... and this happened more than once. Also he put foam hats on people (including me) and pushed some people into the foamy area and we watched this drunk guy sit on the edge of the arena thing. I poked the drunk guy.

OH YEAH ALSO we sat with Casey outside the dorms and talked, and then she went inside at like one, so it was just me and him, and we watched this guy get put into an ambulance and apparently he vomited on himself and this is a dry campus so he's kind of totally screwed....

Right and the guy I was talking to like, he's not from St. John's. He doesn't actually go to college at all. He said he was going into the Marines.

(Super whoa, right?)

I gotta say, he doesn't look like that type at all. He has like long hair and stuff and yeah it just seems weird to me. And I feel bad because he got home late so he can't shower and it's just a big hassle and stuff......

This is so weird guys.... this doesn't happen to me ever. And why me, actually? You know what I was wearing? Baggy clothes and my newest bandanna. Not what most people would consider attractive apparel. And when I got into the bathroom finally, around two, I realized I looked like complete crap. I can't believe he actually talked to me...

[Music-ity stuff]

This video amuses me... but don't watch it if you get offended by really..... dude-on-dude dancing.

....I think the mic on this laptop is catching the sound of my typing and playing it back through the earphones. It's kind of weird. :S

Anyway, my day was rather unexciting. I went to class, and did not say hi to the guy. Ah well. The pizza today at lunch was freakin' awesome, though. Like FREAKIN' awesome.

I was a pig and I ate three slices. D:

Probably I should eat it normally, like, laid out flat, but I rolled it up into... a pizza roll, and it was pretty sweet. (Not sweet as in flavor, just in case you get confused :P)

And I didn't think I was going to take a nap today, since I slept earlier last night, but now I'm starting to have doubts.

Tomorrow: FOAM PARTY! And also a carnival.

Wheee, events. I don't know if I can take college seriously if it's all fun and games like this. [Still would prefer to be in California, by the way...]


What was the point of this?

Phoebe: sup?
Me: um, just hanging out in my dorm room
Me: you?
Phoebe: im eating veggis cuz it will help me poop
Phoebe: OOHH, i think its working, i just farted
Me: ....uh...... okay

Let's see.... class, almost slept in the science one, did fall asleep for a few minutes in the theology one.

In my science class, the teacher came like half an hour late, and then started talking about atoms and stuff like we were all in elementary school. And for some reason everyone was writing down everything he said. :S

Theology is boring and I don't want to take it. I wish it wasn't required. >:|

Uhh.... we ate brunch in the cafeteria, and I saw the dark haired Orientation guy.

And then we went to the bookstore and I saw the blond Orientation guy. (See yesterday's post) We did not talk very much.

Also I got another marriage proposal last night. Best deal yet! :P

Yayyyyyyy my personality makes me attractive to random strangers online....

Should not have gone to bed so late last night. D:

I might nap after this...
Wednesday, September 2, 2009
Today was the first day of classes.

I woke up at 5:50 to get dressed and do all my morning prep, which really is only getting dressed and washing my face and sitting around for half an hour doing nothing important.

I met up with Saeedah at 6:45 or so, and we went to our first class (which we have together).

Discover New York starts at seven in the morning. D: There were people waiting outside the classroom so we just kind of stood there and waited. We were all asking each other if we were supposed to go in, because there were all these other people inside already and they looked like they had been in there for a bit.

Turns out that they just got there earlier than us, so we went inside and sat down and got some papers. I'm really sleepy right now.

That intense-looking dancer guy is in that class. Unfortunately I didn't learn his name because I DID NOT GO INTO THE CLASSROOM EARLY ENOUGH. D:

Anyway, second class: Psychology

We have this option to either participate in a psychological experiment or write a paper.

Hell, I would participate in an experiment even if it wasn't required. It sounds mega fun. :0

A girl told me that the teacher isn't very good though. We'll see...

Third class: Emergence of Global Society

Seems rather uninteresting so far. I mean, it's just the first day of course, so I can't make any real judgements, but ehhh....

One of my roommates is in the class, too.

I have like, a long break between my second and third classes on M/W/F, so I was sitting with Casey around the Great Lawn and we were just chatting. She left though, to go put some stuff in her room, so I talked to this guy from my Orientation group, who, not surprisingly, did not remember who I was. Ah well.

He's a commuter, so the chance of us being friends is low. Not trying to say I don't like commuter students or anything, but we don't have any classes together and the commuters don't hang around the campus except for their classes, so really.... like I said, low chance.

I am seriously so sleepy right now. Last night I was hanging with Casey and Saeedah in the latter's room, which is freakin' luxurious in comparison to mine. Videochatted with Alice, participated in shenanigans... you know, the usual.

They have pretty good pizza here, but otherwise the food isn't that great overall.

Going to go... sleep.... blah....

[Going to download Kodak Easyshare so I can get some pictures up, but until then it's just text entries]



Um, the Statue of Liberty from the boat we went on.

Woo, leaky mozzarella sticks.

My croissant this morning was horrible, so I shredded it.

There's Casey on the right, and then the guy I talked to on the left.

Doing laundry in this sucky, but at least free, laundry room in the basement-type thing in the dorm.

First problem: my detergent leaked. D:

Second problem: you can only get here by elevator, and the elevator is slow as hell.


Guys, I don't like it here.

A horrible icebreaker
Saturday, August 29, 2009
Well, my friendships with Casey and Saeedah seem to be going well. Lulu and Amanda are still more like friendly acquaintances.

I'm a little intimidated by my roommates, seeing as they're both like... a lot taller than me and probably know more about New York than I do. Hopefully things work out? I really want to move to Saeedah's room if her second roommate doesn't show up, because then I won't have to share a single bathroom with six other people. (Girls who actually prep for stuff D:)

Tonight we had to attend a really crappy icebreaker. We had to run around on the soccer field and do random crap, and it was just.... really stupid. It didn't even help me get to know anyone, it was just shallow, meaningless talk. So..... I ditched with Casey, after a while.

Casey's pretty cool. :) We have some stuff in common, so that's great. There wasn't really anything to do tonight, so we just wandered around with Saeedah and tried to find something interesting. There was nothing. X|

All the stores around here are like.... eateries and supply stores. There aren't any fun places. D: Barnes and Noble wasn't open..... it was tragic.

OH, but I did get to see the laundry room, finally. And I sat in the ice um.... box? That freezer thing where they keep bags of ice. It was pretty comfy. :P But then the door was hard to open so my friends had to help me with that.

Tomorrow there's going to be a shuttle to Bed Bath and Beyond, so I gotta go get some shampoo and stuff. Funnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

Well, I'm not in California anymore
Friday, August 28, 2009
I guess I'm going to live in New York for at least a year, now. :/

[Silver, wanna hang out?]

Orientation is going alright, so far. I've made five new friends... I think... One of them doesn't seem to like me that much.

Yesterday there was a dance, and a lot of boring crap that lasted all day long. There's a cute guy in my orientation group, but he keeps ditching...

I don't know what to do for dinner. The orientation leaders kind of left us on our own for that today. My mom left to go back to her hotel, so I'm sort of stuck here........... :|

Anyway.... I'm really too depressed to write much. I'm webcamming with Varsha on the new laptop, but there isn't a whole lot to say besides that.

Wow, talk about thick
Monday, August 24, 2009
[Insert 'that's what she said!' here]

But anyway.

Went shopping today for more dorm stuff, and we spent a lot of time at Bed Bath and Beyond, kind of checking out the bedding and stuff. Since we waited until so late to go though, they were pretty much cleaned out. Actually, every BBaB everywhere is supposedly cleaned out, as far as certain items are concerned. Wow?

We got a pillow and a sheet set. Fun stuff.

And then..... Costco, where I got a new iPod. :0 Unfortunately I can't use it until I get to New York, and I have to figure out how to transfer my library from here to there. :S

Okay, and this is the most important part now.... After Costco, we went to Jamba Juice. And there was a really cute guy working there. :D He looked kind of like the way Hatticus used to look, except he had glasses and seriously, he was pretty cute. Heh.

The lady before me got her smoothie not long after I ordered mine, so I was kind of waiting by myself for a bit. (My mom went to Starbucks) I was just standing there and the guy says "hey, look at this," then holds the blender upside down. It was like in those commercials for the mega-blenders where the stuff is so thick it just sticks in the blender. I laughed, partially because it was so jammed in there, and partially 'cause he had this goofy look on his face and DID I MENTION HE WAS CUTE?

Yes, so, that is my news for today.
