A repost from MySpace, but I feel that it should be here also.
Dear God of Relationships, Hormones, and Symmetry,
My girl friends and I have determined that we are, in fact, receiving cosmic interference in the realm of attracting individuals of the male persuasion into our lives. This interference includes such incongruencies as muscle-headed over-compensators, delusional underachievers, anxiety-prone mama's boys, self-satisfying playboys, megalomaniacal ingrates, pathologically lying man-whores, and obsessive mass-communicators. We would like to see a change in your method of maintaining cosmic balance in this realm that is - at present - a very important and all-influencing area in our existence. Let us start by saying we will not change our methods of coersion, persuasion, infatuation, or physical prowess. On this, we will not compromise.
In other words, please stop sending us - as the perfectly lovely, lively, quick-witted, engaging, mature, independent, fabulous females - retarded boys who deserve to have rocks thrown at them. We deserve, expect, and require better of this life than what is being offered.
Or you can start making it possible to procreate without penises.
Emily & Co.

About ten of us are going to see Imogen Heap on Saturday at One Eyed Jack's. I'm particularly excited about this show because I think it might be a good venue for her. I hope it doesn't sell out, because I'd honestly like to have a minimal crowd there for elbow room and enough there for her to make money, of course. You know how it goes. Anyway, hopefully it won't have a ton of drunkies.
I'm getting totally psyched for my road trip back to CT even though I'm going by myself. (shhhh, don't tell the crazies.) I'm leaving on Sunday to drive through Atlanta and stop at Cindy's new house for dinner, then continuing on to Greenville (if all goes well) to stay with Andy and Lori. Monday I'm headed to Baltimore, which is a big stretch, but I want to spend some time with Kate. Haven't seen her since New Year's Eve! Then she's off to Mississippi and I'm off to NYC to stay with Kirsten and Deryl for two nights. I'm stalling in NYC because Mikey and Courtney are having a farewell party in Hell's Kitchen (well, a farewell bar-hopping anyway) on the 18th. They're moving to D.C. on the 19th, so it's their last night in the big bad apple. Should be a fun time.
Anyway, Friday will bring my reunion with CT for the first time in 2006. I'll be happy to get home to Wyatt, the DVR, a full fridge, cooler weather, natural shade, quiet streets, and the vicinity of NYC friends. Can't wait! Love to all. Who knows when I'll update this again.

BACK FROM SPAIN! I don't even know how long it's been since I've written on this thing, but I started a whole spiel on my subprofile and figured I'd copy/paste it here since it's pretty much the way I speak on here. I'm also not online very long where people can check my subprofile, so better to inform my "far-aways" of what's going on with this thing. :)
So just found out that Voodoo Fest is during fall break this year and I will be missing Beastie Boys. But what would I rather do? Yup, probably rather leave the state and see Kyle. Definitely. Speaking of travelling, I also found out yesterday that 1) I am going to be one of seven bridesmaids in Courtney and Mikey's wedding
2) The bachelorette party is going to be in Manhattan...
3)conveniently during the week of my Spring break when I may be there visiting Kyle for my birthday anyway!
The dates are tentative according to what Courtney was saying yesterday, but she did say in March after Andy and Lori's wedding, so that pretty much leaves the entire 11 days I'm on Spring break and probably during my birthday because the very next weekend is Easter. Doubt they're going to have it during easter weekend.
AND to top it all off, Courtney sent a little package with the letter to ask us to be bridesmaids...
It was a white box with black ribbon. I opened it and guess what?
Black tee shirt with "bridesmaid" written in pink in a white text box...on the back said, "Courtney & Mikey, May 22, 2005, Winston, NC". How awesome is that?? My mom was like, "That's where Courtney and her Marketing career come in!". LOL. I thought it was great.
What else? I am not up for reviewing my entire trip to Spain just yet, mainly because my jet lag has me awake at, yes, the hour of 7am...mainly because it's about 1pm where my body is still at, but that means I only slept 7 hours last night. Trying to get back on track, slowly but surely. Anyway, I have a lot of work to do on my own personal (paper) journal, and, like the traditional person that I am, that one comes first.Sorry. In a nutshell, I went to Spain with 5 pairs of shoes and came home with 9. You do the math. :-D
More later, maybe? Maybe I can keep this up.

Why am I the only person on earth who still has a paper due? Right, cuz i'm the Honors kid. Can't wait to get home and become sane again. I miss my parents and my dog and my friends (Hi guys!) and my brothers. It'll all be over soon.....pray for a smooth flight for me on Monday. Also pray that I get this paper done before that smooth flight. It's okay CT, I'll be home soon.......

So why is it that I just got home from a party at Sara Kelly's place and all I can think about doing is practicing and/or doing work?? Like I don't think I'll be able to go to sleep right away because I cant' stop thinking about how much work I have. What's the deal? It's Friday and I still have time to do stuff, why couldn't I have felt like this on Wednesday and Thursday when I DIDN'T have fun things to do??? Figures.
Current Mood: annoyed
Current Music: Mix of Spanish music....yeah.

Wow, so maybe now that a bunch of my sistas are going to be reading about my life on a regular basis, I should write about my life on a regular basis. :-P Well, what's to say? CRAZINESS going on lately with term papers and studying for exams and then *gasp* juries and finals...in that order. Not only that, but my jury is being used as a scholarship audition for the College of Music so that maybe they'll give me a little extra moo-la for next year and the year after since I'm going to get zippo my senior year (shitty transfer scholarship that doesn't last the time I'm here...boooooo!)
Aside from the craziness, I went to some amazing and inspiring musical performances this past weekend. I went to the Sigma step show on Friday night where SAI and Genesis sang. Then Saturday was the Wind Ensemble concert and later Jennifer Screen's conducting recital with Chorale. Sunday was Gospel Brunch, put on by Cindy's committee and that was Genesis again. Then at 3pm was the University Band concert. SAI was just all OVER that place. And that was with me missing Lucy K playing at Tip's in Thumpasaurus (cuz Rebekah and I were lazy asses and very, VERY tired). Then, to continue the musical extravaganza, Monday night was SAI singer/songwriter night where everybody just rocked the house (esp. LUCY GOOSE!).
Tuesday night was lacking in the musical experience, which is perhaps why I'm cranky today. But I'm going to see the LPO put on Mozart's requiem tomorrow night at the Orpheum with Meghan and Justin. Very exciting. Anyway, that's all I feel like talking about for now. I'm on duty, so if you love me, you'll come visit or at least call me x3701.
Love and hugs,

Thanks goodness it's the weekend, is definitely all I can say right now. Just enjoy my new journal settings :)
May 10th, 2003
Most definitely putting off my Sid & Nancy paper. But in turn, I am studying for Theory more....which is good, no? I need to start practicing for that musicianship test and the last part of my piano exam...but that's aaaaaaall the way on Tuesday. Paper....need to do the paper by Tuesday as well. Really can't wait until Tuesday to do it or I wont' get it handed in before I move the hell outta here.
Anyway, I'm just gonna continue to procrastinate tonight....I'll get to the paper tomorrow when it seems more important. Right now, writing in my journal and listening to music is extremely important.
By the way: Kyle graduated today! Yaaaaaay! Two degrees and no heart attacks...yet. I'm proud. ;-)
I'm out for now. Lata.
April 30th, 2003
Well, It really just has been a very long time. I've been in the habit of writing in an actual journal.....the traditional way. That and I've just been so damn busy with school that it's nearly impossible to cram more stuff into my schedule. But seeing as school is winding down and my classes are slowly (but surely) removing themselves from my life, I have some time to check up on things.
So the updates are:
1) I'm still very deeply and amazingly in love with Kyle.
2) I am going home 2 weeks from today.
3) I am going to WORK while I am home so that I can make MONEY.
4) I am going to be an RA next year in the same building I live in now.
5) I have switched voice teachers and am very happy with my progress in my major thus far. Who'da thought I'd be good at theory? :-)
6) I am successfully a member of SAI, and we are having initiation this weekend, which means we're really and truly DOUBLING our chapter. (whoa!)
7) Somehow I managed to write a 15 page research paper on the development of feminist rights in France (sound fun?) in one day (really, 8 hours - broken). This means that I AM the WOMAN.
8) I also made an A on final English paper (which was written 3 days before the History research paper....it was a busy week and nearly killed me, but I'm still here).
9) Life is good, and I am happy. Yay!
So that's about it. Lord knows when I'll write again, but hey....better late than never.
Adios for now.

Hey guys. Just wanted to let ya'll know that I'm alive and somewhat kicking. Lots of work this semester...too many credit hours. Holding up okay though. I have 2 papers (20 pages each) due before the end of the semester in my respective honors classes. One is due the day I leave for Thanksgiving. great, huh? Oh, and I haven't had time to start it yet because I've been busy reading all the classical epics for my honors English class. There's something wrong with that. Anyway, I need a break today, so I think I'm going shopping for some pants since my mom sent me a box of my favorite clothes and it got lost in the mail indefinitely. They know where it went, but I may never get it back. Long story. So today will consist of a fine balance between homeowork and shopping. I know, not too interesting....this is why I haven't written in a while. Hope everyone is doing well.
