After an emotionally draining couple of months, I've moved back into my dorm and, aside from continually being dangerously broke, I'm starting to settle down into a healthier routine. Classes are going well, and I feel really good about having c... Read more
Confusion Eruption and Dishonesty
Part One: My feelings (a.k.a. confusion)
I don't know what to do with myself. I'm having a good trip to visit friends, but I feel like I'm not living MY life, I'm living theirs. Or HIS, more particularly. Which is intensely weird, to say th... Read more
So, I've had an offer to start swimming with some friends of mine once a week at the school's pool. I think I've got it worked out to my satisfaction, but actually going swimming in public, in front of people (or, o.k., one person in particular)... Read more
Started Working Out Today!
My buddy is awesome. Everyone should get one.
Highlights of the last four days, in no particular order: Moved in, made delicious quiche, went grocery shopping with a chum, my roommates moved back in (I love them so much and I'm so glad we'r... Read more
Getting Started on New Fitness Regime
Well, I know that most people would start in January, but I'm starting in February--I just hope that I can rely on my new gym buddy. And quite frankly, I hope that he can rely on me. I've never gone to the gym before, at least not since high sch... Read more
I'd like to raise a glass to all the peacemakers....
There are going to be a lot of hurdles waiting for me in San Francisco if what I want is a smooth semester. Nobody seems to be getting along with anyone (except me with everyone), and I have a list of extracurriculars a mile long, but at least I... Read more
It seems that the most important outcome of this last semester, and this past year in general, is my allegiance to my new school and the adoption of a few new friends. I'm not the kind of person who makes friends easily, or at least that's what ... Read more
I just want to go all emo and scream.... Read more
So, yesterday a guy in my dorm (who is known for his gregariousness) told me that I looked like I (and another girl) had lost about thirty pounds since coming here in September. That was nice to hear, then he said, "'Cause you used to be big, Ka... Read more
Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood
You know, it's funny that you can go out with a group of people and have a great time, think that you've cracked their crazy posse, and then have it all seem somehow broken half a day later. I think that I know people, I think that I've taken th... Read more
Do you ever get the feeling that everyone but you knows something really important and they also know that you don't know. I get that feeling ALL THE TIME.... Read more
In San Francisco
Hey there, anyone who cares!
I'm in San Francisco right now, without my own computer, so I won't really be on that often until I get one. Keep on Sparking!... Read more
I have no Housing set up for the Fall 2009 semester. The fact that I applied at all (considering how very private and introverted I am, it's an emotional step--something I'm trying really hard not to think about at the moment) is a small victory... Read more
ジューディ ア ボト
Btw, if you're into vintage-ish anime AND Daddy-Long-Legs, there's a series uploaded to Veoh just for you! "My Daddy Long Legs" or "Watashi no Ashinaga Ojisan," a 1990 series of 40 23-ish minute episodes is available free on Veoh. It's cute, not... Read more
Judy Abbot--the only alien on the planet.
When I was nine, my family returned to the United States from the Czech Republic, where we had lived since before I started elementary school. I was already a quiet kid, polite, bright, and, as one aunty of mine has it, a "prim little lady," and... Read more
