Hello, I'm in Livonia

So there goes my life,
Passing by with every exit sign.
And it's been so long,
Sometimes I wonder how I will stay strong.
No sleep tonight,
I'll keep on driving these dark highway lines.
And as the moon fades,
One more night gone, only twenty more days.

But I will see you again,
I will see you again,
a long time from now.





I don't know how you long-distance people do it.
It's been over two weeks, and I miss John like none other :(
Twenty days until I get to see him again...

Summertime... and the livin' is easy...

So today is my first full day home for the summer! It feels weird though because I'd rather be back at school. I miss my John :(
I'll be out job-hunting on Monday because I do NOT want to go back to baking cookies for another summer. I am so done working with food.
I have one week off before I have two more months of school lol. But it's not that big of a deal, because it's just an English class online through Scraft.
Oh! I have a roommate for next year now!!! Chelsea decided to ditch the girl she hated but was rooming with anyway so she could come next door and live with me :)
Next year is probably going to be pretty good. But I am going to be one busy girl, assuming everything works according to plan. I'll already be on Infusion again, and I'll be working, and then I'm auditioning to be on Orchesis dance team as well, and to adopt a grandparent!
BY THE WAY, I forgot to say that I'll be a real dance teacher in the fall!!!!!!! I got a job at that studio downtown (...Mt. Pleasant, that is, lol) teaching a little kids' tap class and two pre-ballet classes. I'm so excited!
Also, I need to start driving again so I can finally get my license. Bleh. I need to just suck it up, do it and be done with it. Then I can get a car and move on with my life.
And go visit John sometimes over the summer XD

BEST. VALENTINE'S. DAY. EVER.
Life is still unbelievably good.

I'm working on the New Year's resolutions, for real this time. I stopped biting my nails for almost 2 weeks before I had a weak moment. I'm working on growing them back again.

College is still crazy awesome. Infusion is the greatest thing in the world! And Alyssa moved out at semester, so I have my own room now!!! You guys know what that means- I need people to come visit me because I have an extra bed now! It's so awesome, because I still have Hillary and Kristen in the other room, so I don't get like lonely or anything, but I have the whole closet and dresser in my room now!

I finished choreographing my solo, and I'm auditioning for Honors Talent Show in 3 weeks! It's gonna be so fun :D
I miss tapping

Teaching Folk and Square Dance is possibly the sweetest class I have ever taken or will ever take in my life. I have so much fun in that class.

I am so excited for Valentine's Day it's ridiculous. It'll be my first one not spent internally moping around!!

AND I went to my first real party last Thursday, or as close to a party as I've ever been lol considering there were only like 10 people there. I played beer pong for the first time XD
But I didn't drink. And it's a good thing I don't drink, because let me tell you, I am absolutely terrible at beer pong. Everyone probably thought I was the drunk one haha

I will say though that I think even though I get bored way more often this year, I'm pretty sure life moves faster in college somehow. It's like one second you'll be like blahh I'm bored, and what seems like the next you have all this stuff to deal with. If that makes any sense at all lol.

HAPPY NEW YEARR!

Dang. I should really update this a little more often lol. It's not like nothing has happened in the past two months!!! So much has happened it's ridiculous hahaha

Anyway. I'm here today to make some New Year's resolutions. And no, posting on LJ more often isn't one of them. Because that's not so important.

I want to stop biting my nails. Still. But this time I'm actually going to try. For the last 12 years I've had this same resolution, but except for maybe the first few times, I've never really cared enough to try and actually stop. And when I did try, I was too young to really have that much willpower. It was kind of an A for effort sort of deal.

I'm also still on the search for a real best friend. I mean, John is my best friend, but I need one who's a girl too. So we'll see if that decides to happen.

Also, I am going to get a six-pack by summer. By June, anyway. I'll settle for like a four-pack if I have to, but my goal is a six-pack. I want some muscle!

And last but not least, I am going to make this relationship as amazing as it can possibly be, and make it last forever, if possible :)

Go, Fire Up Chips!

Wow. I feel like it's been FOREVER since I last wrote on here. Maybe because it has.

Last time I typed an entry, I had just gotten asked out by John the day before!
Now... we just had our 1-month anniversary :)

Well I guess I'll go wayyy back, because I have some good stories.

That date with John was awesome. And by awesome I mean hilarious. Which is even better because that was the first date I've ever been on lol.
A bit of a background to the story: the weekend before our date some idiot threw a beer bottle through the back windshield of John's car, so he had to break the whole windshield out of the car and tape garbage bags over the giant gaping hole hahaha
So to start out, we're driving around in this car with garbage bags taped to the back, and when he was driving we couldn't even like talk because the bags were so freaking loud blowing in the wind. He was taking me to this Chinese restaurant because sesame chicken is both of our favorite foods, but he didn't know exactly where the restaurant was and he wouldn't even tell me where he was taking me hahaha. So we're driving down Mission St. and eventually we hit cornfields. Obviously not the right area lol, so we had to drive to the next town before we could turn around because Mt. Pleasant is in the middle of nowhere. When we're on our way back to Mt. Pleasant, the garbage bags started coming untaped hahaha and there are little glass shards flying up to the front seat occassionally!!! John was just like, "well... this isn't going exactly as I pictured it..." hahaha
It was hilarious.
So we stopped at a gas station to get directions and take the garbage bags off the back of the car.
We eventually made it to the restaurant, and everything went fine after that. Once we took the garbage bags off, the glass stopped flying around the car XD
Best first date story ever.

Skipping a few weeks, Homecoming was the last weekend of September, and that means Mock Rock!!!
Mock Rock was this competition between all of the dorms for who had the best (aka most ridiculous) dance. I choreographed ours. Since the theme for Homecoming was Marooned, we did Peter Pan for our dance, and I got to be Wendy :D
It was awesome. And we did amazingly, if I do say so myself. We totally deserved to win.
But oh well. It was still sooo much fun.

The next weekend I got to go home! And I visited my dance studio, which was so awesome because I got to see everyone and I missed them so much! Then I went to Churchill on Friday for my observations for Intro to Teaching. I went to CAPA for 1st and 2nd hour, which was just so amazing, because I didn't even realize how much I missed everyone there. I got to see Chicken Nuggets :D
And Jaycie and Alexis are in CAPA now. They're growing up so fast!!!

Then I went to Ms. Buchta's class for the rest of the day, which was a good time too. I got to each lunch with the foreign language department lol

Then Saturday night was Alyssa's surprise party. Kirsten drove me, and we were sitting in Alyssa's living room waiting for her to show up, when my phone rang and it was her! It was HILARIOUS. She invited me over that night! hahahaahaha
I was like, " Awww Alyssa, my parents won't let me go ut tonight... we're having a family night because I'm home for the weekend... sorry! Talk to you later though!" lol and she totally fell for it, and it was so great. Then she got there and we all yelled surprise and her mom pointed over at me and Alyssa was just like, "YOU LIAR!" and it was awesome.
And Steve and I played Bop It Extreme for like 2 hours hahaha
It turns out I'm pretty good at it!

Then Sunday I had to be back early for Infusion dance team auditions, and I made the team!!!!!!! Our first rehearsal is tonight at 8 and I am so ridiculously excited!

Last weekend was the road trip, and it was so much fun! It ended up being just me, John, Jake, Taylor, and Hillary, because Kristen's mom decided to come up here on Friday night and not let Kristen go with us :(
We were going to Frankenmuth first, and we totally got lost for a good 15-20 minutes in Midland lol. So we're driving around Midland for forever and Taylor's just complaining about how she needed a map or something, and she's like, "Can I..." and Jake just like randomly goes, "...get a what what?!" HAHAHAHAHAHA
And that was probably the highlight of my weekend. We were laughing sooooo hard. It was great.
Frankenmuth was a good time. I got some chocolate cheese. Then we went to my house for awhile and Emily came over!!! And Jake was so pumped because my dad made us hamburgers. hahaha
And we played some DDR which was a good time. And we went on the trampoline, which was also fun. Except it was mostly just me and Emily on the trampoline. But oh well.
Then we went to the drive-in and I always forget just how much I love that place until I go there again. The movie sucked, but the fact that it was at the drive-in just made it awesome. And they sold fried chicken at the concession stand XD
And rat-poison-flavored M&Ms, apparently.

Then we got back to my house and went to bed. We had to wake up at 7 the next morning so we could leave at 8 because Hillary had to be back for some dumb volunteering thing she signed up for lol

Then we got back and John and I went to the game, which would have sucked if we hadn't won. Nobody went, and it was freezing. It was ok though.
Then the rest of Saturday was amazing.
And Sunday morning ;)



^MOCK ROCK!!!

I LOVE COLLEGE

lol seriously. I love it here soo much.

I didn't make Orchesis though :(
Which kinda makes me really sad because I really wanted to make it, and honestly I thought I would. But oh well. Always next year I guess. And I still have 2 more dance teams to try out for lol!

My classes are sweet. I like my teachers (except for Intro to Philosophy lol). I get way less homework now than I did in high school. I'm going to a master class tonight with some guy who'll be teaching lyrical and hip hop!

And I'm going on a date on Wednesday :)

Life is good.

I'm a college kid!!!

So I'm totally a CMU college kid now!

My roommates are really nice. Kristen and Hillary and I all hang out together, and Alyssa (who is the one I actually share my room with) is never here lol. She moved in two days ago, like me, and she hasn't slept in our dorm yet! I've seen her for like an hour over the past two days. I mean, I like hanging out with her; she's really nice, but she's never here! She just hangs out with her friends she already knew who go here. Oh well. It's kinda nice to not actually have a roommate anyway! lol

So to replace Alyssa, we've basically adopted this girl named Taylor. She's really cool. And her 3 roommates are all juniors and they're all best friends, so she's the odd one out. But it's ok because she jut spends all of her time with us lol. She keeps her Chex Mix in our room hahaha.

Thursday night Josh came and hung out with us, and they all liked him, which is good.
And today Meg came to see me! Yay!

Yesterday night we walked over to Taco Bell for dinner, which was fun. Then when we got back we met a bunch of new people! Someone knocked on the door, and when we opened it there were these two guys and a bunch of girls lol, and the guys lived in our room last year I guess. They were nice. And then they left and we were talking to these girls who live down the hall, and one of them has the same major as me and she's taking the same level of Spanish! She's not in my class though. And they're all sophomores. But they invited us over anytime, so we'll probably end up being friends with them.
Then we went to this thing at Target where we got bussed there, and then we got to shop after hours and there were discounts and stuff, and we all got a free laundry bag with like Febreeze in it and stuff lol. It was cool. Then we went back and got free Pizza Hut and pop, which was sweet! And we took our pizza into the common room and watched tv. And we found a channel that's entirely in Spanish! So we watched it for a good half hour or so hahaha. And Hillary takes Spanish, but Kristen takes French lol. Anyway, channel 48 is where it's at!

So I hope you're all having a fantastic time at college! Keep in touch!

Yeah... I stole this from Lena.

1. List 5 celebrities you would have sex with without even asking questions.
2. Put all of them IN ORDER of your lust for them. (5 - 1, 1 is the hottest.)
3. Say which movie/show/thing it was that hooked you.
4. Supply photos for said people.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OK, fair warning, most of them aren't real celebrities hahaha... just dancers.

5. Jason Dohring. Played Logan Echolls on Veronica Mars.




4. Jeremy Gaynier. First saw him FOREVER ago at a competition... I was probably like 13. AMAZING dancer. Verrry good looking as well!



3. Ricky Ullman!!! HOT. Especially in Pixel Perfect, which is also what I first saw him in.




2. Kyle Molter. First saw him at... Hall of Fame regionals '07? I don't remember, but it was somewhere this past year where Lauren and Meg both were. So he's a year younger than me, but you know what? I can deal. He's worth it XD











1. ANTHONY J RUSSO. Hall of Fame nationals 2006. This man is sooo freaking amazing. And GORGEOUS. And he can sing, play guitar, and tap at the same time! If that's not talent, I don't know what is.






Dance/GRAD PARTY

Dance camp last week was sooo much fun. The kids were so cute! Terrible dancers lol, but adorable. Alyssa and I had a good time Monday and Tuesday. It was so awesome because we got to do all the sweet steps we used to do back in the day. It was so old school! I mean, rideouts. LOL. And Tuesday was intense because I helped out at camp from 10:30-4 and then I went and took my classes from 5:30-9. So I basically spent the whole day at the studio. But that's the way I like it. And I've been trying to get as much time in there as I possibly can before I have to leave. And since Miss Becky left after ballet for Chicago, Nicole taught jazz/lyrical and I got to teach tap!!! And my class would have been absolutely amazing if everyone except like 5 people hadn't decided to leave. But oh well. I'm over it. And I got paid $75 for the week, which was awesome. I swear to god, Miss Becky has the best job in the world.

And I guess I found out who my real friends are at the grad party! lol my dance friends came through for me, but the rest of you... ouch.
Looks like Josh, Nieri, Lana, Alex, and Paul are the only good friends I have lol. You know, from school anyway.
But we had fun without the rest of you.
And I got to see people I haven't seen in FOREVER. Like Izzy!!! And that was really exciting. And I made $1200!!! WOO!
Also, Paul I hope you didn't get poison oak lol.
