Finally! I got my journal to work! I am so happy--hours of CSS have been poured into the code of my blog and of the page. I'm just posting this because I am happy happy happy that it finally works works works!


Yeah, you like my childish subject line? Very nice, I thought so too. My brain feels like it's about to explode right now. It's taking every ounce of self-control that I have not to pick up the chair next to me and throw it across the lounge while screaming at the top of my lungs. Heh. No, I'm not mad or anything. It's just been a crazy stressed out day, that's all. Want to hear about it? Good, cuz I'm going to tell you.

First of all, I'd like to say that my weekend was great. Caleb and I left early Friday morning for Lancaster, PA. My Grandma and most of my mom's family live there, and my family was there on their spring break. We hung out with family, ate lots of food, and pretty much just relaxed for a few days. Wonderful. I even got a nice vintage (but working great!) Singer sewing machine, a toaster, and a bunch of great records from a garage sale (including Bon Jovi's "Slippery When Wet", Barry White's "Greatest Hits", David Bowie's "Changes: 1 and 2", and this live festival record that has everything from Lou Reed to Miles Davis on it). My Grandma and everyone loved Caleb, and we had a lot of fun.

We drove home yesterday, bringing my brother with us. He's staying for a few days to check out the school and then taking a train back on Thursday morning (at 5 am, yuck! and I get to drive...). Last night was fine too, we made pizza when we got back and watched "Almost Famous" for the upteenth time.

And then today. Today was just insane. I have stuff due in every class, Caleb found out he has a research paper that was due this morning, there are tons of details regarding Culture Shape that need to be worked out before it happens on Monday, I'm working tonight when I wish I could be at Caleb's choir concert, Caleb and I are both working on Friday and he's supposed to play a concert with Gunsmoke and I really wanted to go so I could hear their great new drummer, I have a term paper due next week, I'm trying to get my brother to the right places, I still haven't heard from the insurance people about the whole incident with my car and this stupid "Manny" guy, I'm running low on money, and exams are coming up in another week or two. Ugh.

Plus, I don't know if I'll be in Florida this summer. I was supposed to be living with Nanny, but she's having some health complications and it's looking more and more like that won't work out. So I won't have anywhere to live. So...I think I'm going to have to spend the summer in Michigan. I really realy don't want to do that. I was so excited about getting a job in St. Augustine and hanging out with the girls and with Caleb and Luke and everyone. And now...now I'll just have another boring summer in Detroit, where most of my friend work full-time all the time and live too far away to do anything with. Last summer was boring and bad. It really was. I know that God has a plan and a purpose, and if I'm supposed to be in Detroit, then I am, but darnit....I really want to be in Florida! :(

So the added burden of all that is kinda bugging me lately too. I need to go somewhere and just collapse for a while. Bleh. So if anyone happens to pray for me, just for a few seconds, I'd appreciate it. Let me know and I'd be more than happy to do the same for you--I know how the end of the semester is for everyone. Not a fun thing.


Here I go!

1) Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4. Write down what it says: "Snowboarding!/Gunsmoke Dialogue Concert/ *Essay On Man oral presentation..." (The only book I have with me is my planner, heh)
2) Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch first?: nothing

3) What is the last thing you watched on TV? The Hulk DVD special Features

4) WITHOUT LOOKING, guess what the time is.3:17
5) Now look at the clock, what is the actual time? 3:18...wow, I wasn't expecting to be that close.
6) With the exception of the computer, what can you hear? Radiohead's "Kid A" playing on my headphones.
7) When did you last step outside? about 15 minutes ago when I walked from my car to the Lounge. (yup, I'm working)
8) Before you came to this website, what did you look at? Dennis Ho's Indie Rock Photo
9) What are you wearing? My red DP Staff t-shirt, jeans, and blue converse.

10) Did you dream last night? no, but I had lots of dreams this past weekend.
11) When did you last laugh? About half an hour ago when Caleb and I were talking about this weird guy on campus who ruined his nice vintage Bug by airbrushing a huuuuge picture of Taz on the hood. ::shudders::
12) What is on the walls of the room you are in? A sign that says "No Food or Drink Allowed". Crazy.
13) Seen anything funny lately? Yeah, myself because I drove all the way here before I realized I didn't have keys to unlock the lounge, so I had to go back to DP and get them. Ok, maybe it wasn't that funny, but I was a dork.
14) Last movie you saw? in theatres: Somthing's Gotta Give (gooood movie) On DVD: The Hulk
15) If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first? Another pair of jeans for Caleb. Poor boy. And then a new G5 with an iPod.
16) Tell me something about you that I don't know? I have an "Olivia" planner and it makes me happy.
17) If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do? I really like Shannon's Idea about girls having to be boys and vice versa for a day. Only I'd make the really snotty vain girls be boys for a week. Messy boys, at that.
18) Do you like to dance? Yeah, haven't really done it much though. Caleb is going to teach me.
19) George Bush: Which one? Love'em.
20) Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her? I really like the name Gueniverre, "Gwen" for short.

22) Would you ever consider living abroad? heck yeah!
