Somehow, vacation has been stressful...leave it to me to be stressed during break. Between being super busy, redoing and painting my room, furniture shopping with my mom (18 furniture stores and counting for one stupid chair that still hasn't been bought leading us all the way to the delaware water gap during our search), family health problems, constant toothaches and finding out i needed my wisdom teeth out, and cancelled trips to boston.....yeah, it's been busy/stressy. (Ok stressy isn't a word, but I like it. So there.) That doesn't mean I haven't had fun. Christmas was a great time. I was able to catch a Jets game and do some tailgating with Joe, Frank and his friends. New Years Eve was another fun shin-dig at Peg's house once again. Peg, Al, Nora, Joe, Amanda, Cassie, Nate and his cousin were there and it was fun as always, great to spend the night with everyone all together. Since then, I havent done anything special, just catching up with friends and stuff. I'm starting to get anxious to go back to school. I mean, I'll miss home. But it's just so quiet around here. I almost want to start a fight with my parents just for some action...almost.
My schedule next semester sucks ass, but I guess it's even because the fall was a really good semester. In terms of classes, I'm taking:
-Civil War and Reconstruction
-American History I
-Physics II
-Developmental Biology
I'm pretty sure I'm going to be bored out of my mind in the civil war class, but it was all I could fit into my schedule. Hopefully Am. Hist will be good and Al's in my class which Im excited about. Other than that, we shall see. Right now I'm looking more forward to going out drinking when we get back to siena more than what my classes are.

buh-bye....

hmm im bored so i guess im gonna update. best thing of the past week: i bought a new car!! its a metallic red 2005 toyota corolla le, brand new! its really awesome and it has all the best options on it- 6 cd changer, cruise control, automatic everything, its awesome. i drove it to joe's house on sunday and it drove beautifully, i still cant believe its all mine!
other than that, umm ive gone shopping way too much. but that stopped once i wrote the check for my car because im kinda broke now. works been going really well, the days go by in a flash, i feel like last year they dragged on so much. i guess its bc im friends with all of the other employees so it makes it more fun or something.
in other news, ive been redoing my room, which i meant to do since christmas break. i spent all day yesterday stripping wallpaper, it took from about 8am to 5pm. getting all the glue off was such a bitch. tonite after work im putting on the primer, and hopefully picking up the stuff to paint with tomorrow. i still need to buy new bedding, stuff to go in the new room, and a new bureau. im so excited that i have a new car and a new room and i got an A in philosophy after working my ass off in that ridiculously hard class.....YAY :P

i dont know what else to say, other than this has been the busiest, non-stop summer but i wouldnt want it any other way....peace out

So I should be getting an ipod that I ordered in the next couple of days. $269 with the student discount! I got the 20GB new generation that just came out (full color display, can store 15,000 songs or 25,000 photos). So apparently now ipod photo is obsolete and the regular ipod stores photos as well. Im really glad I waited for the new generation, I was going to get the just music no color 20GB one about a month ago, but the fact that the new one is so much better is really awesome. Actually whats really awesome is that Im not paying for it. haha....okie dokie ill update later, just wanted to get that out.

this is the link for the new ipod color:

5/20/05 12:02 pm - summerrrrrr

It's been summmer for a week. Last Saturday we took out the new boat for the first time and it was awesome. Our old boat (which we sold and im gonna miss) was just a 16 foot aluminum fishing boat (basically a rowboat with a huge motor attached lol)....Needless to say pretty ghetto. Our new one is a real fiberglass boat and its awesome. We ended up going out in Mammaroneck (sp?) and then drove down the shore of Westchester over past Rye Beach and around the Greenwich Islands. I can't wait til its warmer and we can just jump off the swim platform and go swimming. Other than that I've signed up to take Philosophy 201 at RCC. Its tuesday, wednesday, and thursday morning all through June which isnt bad at all, I actually started reading the textbook early and its really interesting so Im getting pretty excited. Other than that, I've been relaxing, decided to work at Forever 21 again this summer, and I've been going to the lake a lot. Joe came over yesterday and the day before that and we had a good time. We went to the Cheesecake Factory which is really becoming one of my favorite restaurants, we watched Runaway Jury and the original Manchurian Candidate. We also went to the lake and had a little picnic and watched the sunset.... AWWWWW! hahah well, anyway right now Im just waiting for Frank to come home. We're going up to Boston today for his graduation and staying til Sunday, and mom and dad and the rest of the fam are coming tomorrow afternoon. So I have nothing else to say so I guess thats it.....byeeee

I haven't done a real update in a long while. I've been having too much fun I guess :D
So I moved up to Siena a week early for Ambassador training. Ambassador's is the club at our school that gives campus tours. We had to do all this stuff, like the ropes course, moving in freshmen and some information sessions. It was pretty fun, we met a lot of people, went to the THs for the first time of the school year, and Peggy and I set up the suite! We had to move all the bunkbeds into the other room and we almost lost a finger from moving in furniture, but the room is awesome. When you first walk in, its a living room. We have Franks big TV in there (yay for frankie!) and a really nice bay window, and of course our comfy FUTON and the suite has cathedral ceilings so it looks really big! Hahha you have no idea how difficult it was to find one that wasnt ridiculously expensive. Then the other room has these huge closets, our desks, and our beds. Peggy and I had moved all of our stuff in, and Jill came a few days later. Jill is our new roommate since Katie decided to stay in Canada. She's a junior from Scotia, she's really nice and everyone's getting along great so far. A few days later Alison moved in, and then classes started. I love my classes except for religion. Im taking:

-Cell Biology w/ Lab
-Organic Chemistry w/ Lab
-Introduction to Biblical Studies
-Honors Seminar: History of Iraq
-Scientific Writing
So far, we havent gone to the bars yet. We got alcohol one night, drank it, and I got too sick to make it out lol. But Al, Peg, and Jill went to Jesse's apartment in Albany. (He's Jills boyfriend). But I didnt mind staying in the room cause Joey stayed with me and took care of me.
I cant wait til this weekend. I just have to get through religion tonight and the rest of the week shouldnt be too bad. This Friday Joey and I have been going out for 7 months, and he has something really really cute planned. So now I dont have to bitch that he never does anything cute (which is bullshit anyway cause he's a cutie)...Soooo.....better start some work now....
