[ mood | sick ]

I've been accepted to University of Colorado at Boulder, and University of South Carolina. No news on the HC at SC, but that is coming soon thanks to Robert's aunt. I'm in the running for two major scholarships for Colorado, as well. I'm excited.

All week we psychoanalyzed Heath Ledger's death in Psycholgy class. Whenever the subject of Heath is brought up, I just become really sad. The whole situation is just really depressing and I'm genuinely upset about his death. If any of you haven't seen the Dark Knight trailer, you really should. You'll understand why he was on medicine. He does such a good job of playing the Joker, it's scary.

In other news, I worked my ass off this week. I'm going to have the fattest paycheck ever. I'm just really exhausted because I opened both yesterday and today, and work both a morning and night shift for both. Then I worked overtime on wednesday and thursday because our store was featured in a magazine, and we needed to clean, badly.

I'm sick of school. I want to go to college so badly. I'm ready to be on my own.

 All A's on my report card, betch! Even Mr. Arthur gave me an A and here is a list of the things I did  this semester
1. Not try out for All County
2. Not sell Christmas trees
3. I missed a few after school rehearsals for work
4. Constantly pissed him off in class
5. Argued with him about his program
6. Showed up late to everything

I don't understand how last year I only didn't not take lessons and I got a B, but this year I somehow magnificently got him to pull an A out of his ass for me. It is wonderful.
Anyway, I'm really excited to read Poisionwood Bible mostly because I already have Leah's notecards and template, which means that I really don't have to do any work at all. Yay!
But, the Yearbook deadline is STRESSING ME OUT. It makes me hate Yearbook.

I was at Barnes and Noble today when I had an epiphany.
I really need to read more. I love reading, I just don't have the time to, usually. I bought some books that I've always wanted to read, but never have gotten around to reading. I'm also making a list.
I bought: 
The Jungle by Upton Sinclai
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
The Jungle is just plain interesting, but maybe that's just the love for history coming out. Same with Uncle Tom's Cabin. I almost bought a book of Ralph Waldo Emerson's essays, which is probably going to be my next buy, along with Atonement, The Jungle Books, and Moby Dick.

I wish I had more to write about in this journal, but there's really not a lot of interesting things going on. I feel like there should be considering it's my senior year and full of fun and excitement, but it's really just full of Native Son and Calculus and German that I don't feel like doing.
Mrs. Savage is pregnant by the way. We find out if it's a boy or girl tomorrow. It's really exciting. It makes me want a kid, but not really. I don't want to get fat. She's got me already studying like crazy for the AP test. I really want to pass.
Mr. Arthur is full of shit. We're playing Godzilla meets Las Vegas or whatever, and I have a ROCKIN' solo. It's going to be tight as hell if I can play it right.
I'm pretty sure I haven't had a good night's sleep in 2 weeks. I thought that's what Christmas break was supposed to be for?
College acceptance letters will be rolling in soon. I think I've made up my mind that if I get money, I will go to South Carolina. They have great history classes, and I'm really excited. I just want to get away and have fun.
I found out that I love reading Cosmopolitan. It's so dirty and fun.
I listened to all the old band CD's of our concerts. That was really fun. I decided that the Spring Concert in 2007 was the BEST music and best performance by far. In second is Spring Concert 2006 when we did the Ascension. That song is wonderful. Does anyone by chance have a recording of Russian Christmas Music?
Now I am going to bed only to wake up and have to go to school, which sucks.
By the way, today I decided on my children's names: Liam, if it's a boy. Autumn, if it's a girl.

Christmas break was wonderful. I don't know how I live without Califorina for months at a time.
Robert's coming to stay at the house this week, which is exciting.
But I also work every day. BLAH. I talked to Steve about a raise and it is in the process. Score 1 for Katherine.
But, my car was also vandalized with spray paint last night. It doesn't come off. We're working on that. People really suck sometimes.

I hate my life. I have no friends, literally. I love being an outcast at school. It's really awesome. My work bestie Philip ignores me now because I don't have a crush on him, and my "closest" friends are being bitches. I made up with Jennifer today just because I had no friends on the Holiday Caravan field trip. We had fun but the fact that everyone else was unbelievably bitchy was the focus of my day. But it wasn't just today, it's been like that for months.
I can honestly say my closest friend right now is Meghan from work.
Disheartening to say the least. Although I love Meghan dearly, that's not the way it should be. I ate my feelings tonight and it wasn't cool.
I wake up at 3 tomorrow morning to go to the airport and fly to California. I really need this vacation badly.

I hope everyone has a good Christmas, and I'll talk to you when I get home.

 So I'm sick...again.
I'm really sick of getting sick. I was sick at least 3 times in November, and now again today. I'm guessing it's stress and just the cold weather, but jesussssss. Make it stop.

So tonight while I was thankfully not at swim practice, I was watching the hour lineup of Scrubs that comes on Comedy Central every night at 7:00. It was the episode (if you've seen it), where there are 3 patients in the hospital that need organs donated to them, and J.D, Turk, Carla, and Elliot are scrambling around hospitals to try and find organs before the patients die. Then Dr. Cox and J.D run into this patient they used to have who ends up dying, so they use her organs for the patients, but she ended up having rabies. So then all of the people who got her organs died too and Dr. Cox blamed it all on himself.
I don't know why that was so emotional, but gosh I was on the couch crying for like 10 minutes. It was so sad, and especially when Dr. Cox was crying when he was talking to J.D...omgggggg. Keep me away from this show.

I hope someone understands what I'm talking about, haha.

So Christmas is coming up, I guess. I don't really know what to tell my mom what to get me for christmas. I like surprises. I don't want to have to tell her what I want :). lol.
Work sucks. Anyone know a cool place that's hiring? I'm definitely quitting. Maybe the threat will force them to give me a raise and stop treating me like shit.
I am NOT looking forward to this week of school. Christmas break couldn't come soon enough.
Colorado and South Carolina sent me letters that notified me that they have my application. That is severely nervewracking. I need moneyyyy.

So basically I'm bored with life. I need something fun to happen.

Yay for everything becoming less stressful...a little bit.
I'm swimming now. It's kind of a bitch, but I need to get back into shape.

I've been pretty crazy busy lately. Grand Nationals wasn't as successful as we hoped it would be, but it was okay because a few of us snuck out of the Dome during the long 9-hour death sentence that is named semi-finals to go to the mall. It was so much fun and I'm glad that I broke the rules a little. What was he going to do? Kick us out. Oh wait, band was over!!! Mwahaha. He hates me so much.

School is going well. I'm trying to get all A's because if I added it up right, I will have to get all A's on both report cards in order to be a Valedictorian. Too many mess ups sophomore and junior year. Oops. I am a commonwealth diploma recipient, which is neat. I have to walk very first at graduation which is kind of nerve-wracking, but I think I'll deal.

Thanksgiving break is going to consist of work work work - working at work, working on homework, working on dealing with my Dad. I have 6 chapters of a German children's book to read, a 5-page analytical paper for Allen, deciphering Paradise Lost and answering questions on it, and writing a portfolio piece for Psych. Doable, but hard since I'm working a double shift every single day until sunday. Cool.

I'm just really stressed out and need a major break, which is what I thought that Thanksgiving break would be...but it is not. At least band is over. My back hurtssss.

So this weekend was really lame. I feel as though I don't really have friends, but I know that someone out there cares about me. Saturday and sunday I was all by myself at home forever. Then I went to work and ate free macaroni and cheese...illegally. Mwahaha.

Anyway, at work I found out that my boss is now a raging alcoholic sociopath because he's getting divorced with his wife. I really started thinking about it, because that news really really shocked me for some reason. I hope that I marry someone who will be true forever, but these days that seems a little too much to ask for. I can't imagine how miserable people (like my mom, and Steve) are when they get divorced. I don't think that I could handle that kind of pain. 
I don't know why I'm in such a weird mood, now.

Jaime, I worship you for sending me the Across the Universe soundtrack. It truly is life-changing. 

I pretty much decided that I didn't want to be at school today, so I came home early and slept. Hahahaha. I guess I haven't been getting enough sleep lately, or I am sick, because the past three nights I've gone to bed at 8:00 and have been even more tired than I would normally be if I went to bed at 10 or 11. Well whatever. 
I'm kind of excited because I pretty much have a break from now until about Christmas college application-wise. That will be a wonderful and much-needed break. South Carolina really took a lot out of me, haha. I'm taking the SAT again in December. I find out my ACT score on the 14th, and my SAT score on the 20th, so that should be REALLY interesting. I hope I got a good score on either so there's really no need in me taking it again besides to try and improve. I'd love to be able to get a 29 or 1300 so I can actually apply to William & Mary. I love that school!!!
I heard The Awakening sucks, but I'm pretty much reading it right now. I guess it's okay, but the poetry projects are a biotch. English is really the only class I'm worrying about right now. And shit, I just forgot to do all of my German homework, and I have to present a chapter of the book tomorrow. That is so wonderful. Goodbye.

"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived fowards."

I have beaten this quote to death. After attempting to write an essay discussing this quote for over a month, I am finally finished. God damn you, South Carolina. I better get accepted for this shit, haha.
