havent updated in a long while. sooo some stuff has happened since the last time i wrote.

So when my parents went to Alaska for a week, the house was pretty tame. Ruqqayah and I went out for pizza one night, and I hung out with some other friends. And thats the whole truth I swear! (Had the house to myself for 9 days---not writing what went on in this journal).

Last week I saw Alison for the first time in over a month and Peggy for this first time in a while as well. I took them down to Nyack for Starbucks and we walked up and down Main Street, down to the pier, basically my usual route that most people I know will know well by now. Then a few days (I guess? Im bad with keeping track) later we went to dunkin donuts (alison and i got a bottled water and peggy got a diet pepsi. yeah we're insane). We mostly talked about how we're gonna miss our former-future roommate Katie. Katie was one of our closest friends at Siena and actually has decided at the last minute to transfer to a school closer to home. It's completely understandable because she lives literally across the continent in BC, Canada and it was very difficult to not be able to see her family and friends from home. We're gonna miss her like crazy, but hopefully she'll visit Siena to see everyone, or maybe we can visit her sometime.
I also saw Joe on Thursday (I think it was Thursday). I went over to his house, we watched Gothika (which was decent-not good) and went for a walk on a path in the woods until we got lazy and hot and went to Subway. Then we watched the other half of the movie I think and then had dinner with his mom. As always a good time.

Today I went to Woodbury Commons with my mom. I got the most adorable stuff ever and I cant wait for fall weather now!! I also got a Lesportsac travel bag with like bright designs all over it and im in love with it! It only cost $39 (down from $120). And 2 corderoy skirts from J.Crew for $8 each! So Im a very happy girl right now.

At work Ive been working 6 days a week, which means Im exhausted but Im making a lot of money. Yay! Ok I have nothing left to say cause I forgot what I wanted to write in here.

Soo.....just writing in this cause Im bored, as usual I really have nothing to say. Calculus is over, so now I dont have to wake up at 6:30 every tuesday and thursday. Kind of bullshitted my way through the last test but I had an A going into it so I dont care much.

I just started dieting again yesterday. I took like a week and a half off and gained like 2 pounds, it was pretty bad. I still have so much to lose this summer. Ew.

Right now Im pretty much trying to plan out the rest of my summer. Im going back to school September 7th, which is like 5 days early for Ambassador Club training (thats the club that gives campus tours). As of now I know Im going to Rhode Island to Burlingame State Park to go camping. I've done that every summer since forever. It's right next to the nicest beach and its always fun. I'll probably go for like 4 days. We're bringing the boat too. Usually Frank and I go up a day or 2 early then our parents meet us there. Im also going to the beach for a few days, more towards the end of August. Probably LBI or something, not sure yet.

This week (Monday -Sunday) my parents are going to be in Alaska for my dads business trip. my brother is going to be at the shore for some time of it too. I'm working Monday 9:30-4:00, Friday and Saturday ( I dont remember if Im working on those two days on evenings or mornings so check with me). I'm up to do anything, I was thinking about shopping at Woodbury Commons, a trip to the Westchester Mall, maybe Six Flags?, and I want to see The Village and maybe another movie or two. So if ur bored just call my cell.

had a decent day. early in the week i planned to visit joe today. but i wasnt allowed to. long story that i cant explain on a public lj. so i went to calc class (now theres only 2 classes left), went to the track, and visited some friends at their work. totally went off the diet today. gave in and had a huge piece of 4-layer double chocolate cake. the cake that i havent touched even though its been on the counter glaring at me since sunday. and i had a piece that probably could have fed 3 people. and while i was at it i figured why not have some pringles. so then i got a huge stomachache and realized that eating so much junk isnt worth it. somehow i dont think ive learned my lesson though.
so far this summer i got my bmi down from 24.7 to 22.6 (healthy range is 18.5-25). I still want to get it to around 20.7, which means i have to lose about 13 more pounds. ive lost 14 pounds in the last 5 weeks or so and i have more than a month left of summer so im confident that i can do it. especially since ive been so good and so motivated (except for today-but ill make up for it tomorrow and saturday).

so tomorrow and saturday im working 4-10:30 and then i have sunday off. no plans yet but hopefully i'll find something fun to do.

i love it when u do semi-decent on a test, but everyone else in the class almost fails so the teacher curves it a bit and then it looks like u did well even when u didnt really do that well at all. (i also love really long run-on sentences).

the past few days have been really fun. frank came home from europe on wednesday night. so thursday i went out to lunch with him and hung out with him all day. its nice to see him cause i missed him so much. i had only seen him for like a week since january. then yesterday, i saw anchorman with him. it was hysterical. really see it, soooo funny. later on i went to see king arthur with ruqqayah. it was pretty good, just a little long.

i lost a little more weight since the last time i've posted. so far i lost 12 lbs this summer, but i have a lot more to go and this weekend im eating out and my familys having a cookout so im definitely not losing anymore weight. oh well.

and tomorrow joeys coming! i havent seen him since thursday of last week so im super excited. and frankie gets to finally meet him too so thats good.

7/6/04 10:36 pm - updating finally...

hmm so this is going to be pretty boring cause i cant remember what i've done in the last week or so. hmm yeah i seriously cant remember shit. well i know on wednesday i had a *special* secret visitor, and that was a lot of fun. Then I got my calc test back and I kicked ass which really surprised me. Then this weekend I missed the 4th of July fireworks for the first time ever. BUT I had a much better time than I could at the stupid fireworks in pearl river cause I was in connecticut at joeys house. i stayed until monday and we had fun as always. we saw spiderman 2. i wasnt too sure if i would like it cause i didnt care for the first one much, but i thought the second was pretty good. it had much more plot and storyline than the first. today i had calc and then went running at the south track. felt so weird going back, but nice in a way.
i should probably start reading something because i feel very anti-intellectual right now. any suggestions? call me.
and this weekend im off on saturday so slap me if i dont make plans.

6/28/04 07:16 pm - i know, i know, i just did one of these...deal with it...;)

The past few days have been a lot of fun. Thursday night Joe came over and stayed until 8pm tonite (Saturday). On Thursday we watched The Shining and just stayed in the house. Friday we went out for lunch, watched the end of the movie, and then went to the Incubus concert at the Garden with Brendan, Alison, and their friend Tom. It was really good, they played all of their big songs: Pardon Me, Drive, Warning, Wish You Were Here, Nice to Know You, and Talk Shows on Mute. They also played some other really old songs, one from S.C.I.E.N.C.E, and then did some guitar and drum solo stuff. I really think they sound good live, so it was definitely worth going to. The Vines were supposed to open for them, but they broke up a few weeks ago, so this band called Sparta opened. With a swan as their logo (or a duck, according to freak-armed Tom), we assumed it was some chick rock band. It wasnt. It was an awful guy band that sounded so distorted. yuck. Today we saw Fahrenheit 9/11, funny and extremely sad at the same time, but so many inaccuracies and quotes taken out of context, dont take it too seriously.

--ugh tomorrow means back to work and huge Calculus test Tuesday at 8am that I havent studied for yet!
