Okay…so that last entry was just to see who would freak out b/c my entry was really short..bAHAHA…not that funny but here is an update..A LONG ONE
July 3rd- went bowling with rob, mary, elise and Patrice. Naturally, we all screamed some really funny things at each other when we were trying to bowl like; Dandelion, you suck at piano, acutane, birth control, paul died, remember when you sucked, tear your acl, break your ankle…etc. We founded the Bowling group, haha, and just talked and laughed. We decided to discuss good books and things. I got a turkey no idea how but I did. Then we left and I drove us to Burger King. Some asshole went 60 thru the parking lot and almost killed us, that was fun, NOT. We sat and talked about the play the seniors are going to make and how me, mary and elise think that we should be the characters in it, but apparently that was already discussed.
Independence Day – An overall good day. I had to go to my aunt’s house for a party. My mom-mom, mom, dad, sister, cousins tina and sue, aunt bj, and my cousin’s boyfriend eddie. We sat and talked and played a few games. We ate and laughed. I cleaned their closet of games out because it was atrocious and I freaked out b/c I hated how dirty it was. What not! So, we came home around like 7:30 b/c my parents were tired and had work the next day and such…so then rob and Patrice had nothing to do so they came over and we went swimming. We had a good time, then wanted fireworks so we went to the bowling alley parking lot to buy some fireworks, the funny thing was…the people selling them were a church organization..BAHAHA…um I had to purchase the fireworks b/c….im the only 18 year old..nice for me..haha…we went home and put them off..they were pretty..and we had fun. Patrice and I thought a couple of the fireworks were going to hit us in the face. But anyhow..they left later and it was just a good day
The 5th and 6th – my body was extremely tired these two days.. I would awake at around 12..then just feel like shit…moped around..watched some tv..I didn’t feel like doing anything which was okay b/c no one called me to do anything anyway…I forgot how if I don’t call people..i don’t get called…PS—this doesn’t apply to any of those people who weren’t home during this time…which is most of my friends haha…..Rob came over to watch tv naturally, cause I had nothing else to do…and I was on the phone with Kelly on the 6th for quite some time. She makes me laugh..she called me at like 12 in the morning..it was cool tho..i love her
Friday—That was the day of my grad party for my friends. Im kind of surprised by who showed up, but I am happy. Jacqui was there! Ang, Jay, Wunder, Rich, Swiker, Steph, Paul, Katherine, Ashley, Meg, Mary, Patrice, Kelly Wilk, Sara bonner, Matt, Quann, Lauren Boyle. *****Lauren M****, Rob..i think were all the people..i prolly missed someone…o Steven..one of my fave people..how could I forget. Hmmf..i ended up finding out my AP scores too which was nice. A 5 in Calculus, a 4 in stat, which is fine, I only needed a 3. To my surprise, I got a 3 in English, which counts for an elective at Scranton, which works for me considering I didn’t do shit all year and still managed to get a 3 on the AP test. WOW! Yea for me!! The party was quite entertaining. Many people swam, once most people left it was a Disney scene it duel between 3 teams..the play crowd –jacqui, matt, Patrice and Lauren…..Me, swiker and steph…and then laurboy,wunder, and rich…Wunder’s team won..which was a shock and I loved it..every left around 11:30..and the play kids stayed around…we played more games and Kelly and nikki showed up later to hang around..it was all very nice.
Saturday—Family Graduation party day…um my family came over and I spent a lot of time with both my cousins named Michelle. Haha, we laughed. Rob was over, as were cece, elise and Kelly. The foley’s, mrs. Stoop, the gilberts and hajnas all came over as well. That, my friends, was exciting. Haha. We all laughed and talked and just hung around. I got a good amount of money and talked to a lot of my family which was nice, I love being treated as an adult now, in my family its kind of like, you get treated like a child until you graduate, so im quite excited. Later once most people left, me, elise, cece, and Kelly started watching camp, and rob and his cuz Nick came and watched it too..We decided to leave to go see the 10:10 Pirates of the Carribean movie…haha, it was the death of me long…I wanted to die…..kelly took home, cece, rob, nick and nick’s sister Brooke, and I took home elise. What a long night..I got in around 1:30. UGH! Haha
Sunday – I decided to sleep in past church..b/c I really didn’t care. Then..i went to the stoop’s for a barbecue at like 2 ish….we watched Munich and I laughed as rob’s mom, dad, aunt and uncle all fell asleep on the blow up beds as rob and I were watching Munich, then his uncle started to snore funny. It was mildly entertaining, I left as soon as the movie was over and headed home. At home, I rushed to pack, finished packing and me, mom and dad got on the road to Scranton. A little less than 2 hours, like it is supposed to, was our travel time. I asked my parents the top 10 lists and we listened to Rent and Putnam County. It was not a long trip at all really. So, we were staying at the Hilton, which was quite lovely. We sat in for a little, I called Angela, we met her and her mother over at Scranton for like 10 minutes and it began to rain, so we went back to our designated hotels. Me, mom and dad watched United 93, it was “a good movie,” I don’t really know how you can describe a movie like that..it was impactful, and brilliant.
Scranton Orientation – Wow..so we got to Scranton on Monday morning…early! Naturally, we forgot to get the clothes and everything for staying over out of the car, so we had to go get the car and go out of the way..DUMBIES..haha…we got all the good stuff.. I registered, got my room key, my roommate for the night was Doug Jones, AKA, that is my dad’s name, haha, my binder, my Scranton ID picture and everything was wonderful..and ORGANIZED..haha…mom, dad and I went to my dorm room to put my stuff down..It was hot so we put the fan on, I met doug and his mom, the dorm wasn’t that tiny, so I was okay with that. Found out later that I am prolly going to have to triple in a standard double because I replied back so late that I was coming…..basically more people are coming then they have dorm room for so some freshman have to triple, its $2000 cheaper tho..that’s cool! Basically, over the 2 days I had a lot of fun. Kelly, Wunder, Angela and I hung out a lot and got closer. I met some really awesome people, mostly my fellow Bio/Pre-Med kids…One girl’s name is Nikki and she is just like..basically..a possible great friend..brendan too, and casie, and Katie and nina..haha.and matt..good good kids! We had to take 4 placement tests…Chemistry, Spanish, Math and “Writing.” We ate the food, which is delicious actually, NO COMPLAINTS FROM ME! Um, went thru residential life meeting and found all the alcoholics in my class for instance. This is a funny one, first: Question:..What happens if you have someone of the opposite gender still in your room past curfew?....Alcoholics: “Can your RA just barge into your room, and if they can, are they allowed to check out your refrigerator?” “How many times can I get caught with alcohol before getting kicked out of the school” haha! We met about University Ministries, we did team bonding things, and at night they had a dance in which, Me, wunder, Kelly and ang went to still the chicken nuggets and rice krispie treats…THOSE RICE KRISPIE TREATS WERE AMAZING!! We had a lot of fun basically.. We were done by 1:30 on Tuesday. Funnier story…So I had my academic advising for my schedule Tuesday morning in rotations. They had already given me a schedule but had to check out my placement test results. Funny, the group had an hour for that rotation..I was with MY advisor for 45 minutes discussing so much. First of all I tested out of 9 credits and get 9 free credits, also, with my major, I never have to take math again! I was okay with it , then they looked at my math scores and saw that I got 59 of the 60 questions right of basic algebra, algebra II, trig, pre-calc and calculus. Haha…so they tried to convince me to become either a math major or a bio-math major, I told them no. In turn, I gave them hell about 5 classes on Monday. Haha..seeing as though im in the SJLA program, basically freshman honors, for the top kids, I have 6 classes and 2 labs. Then I got my Spanish test results back and they decided to put me into Advanced Spanish! GREAT, haha, but I am calling and going to Intermediate, there is NO way I can survive Advanced..I am telling you! My chemistry placement was funny b/c…it was like a national exam and you could test out of chem112 and go to chem.113 if you scored in the top 10 percentile of a national college freshman chemistry cumulative exam. So I was thinking right away that I was going to be in the lower 50 percentile category, I laughed during the entire exam and out loud too, ask Angela. I guessed most of the 45 questions haha…then I get the results back and I was in the 50-69 percentile..meaning I beat 50-69 percent of the college freshman who took the chemistry exam in the nation after just finishing the course..nevermind the fact I had cubbage and sophomore year…O gosh! ..basically…orientation was the shit..and I cant wait for SCRANTON!
Tuesday night – Rob and I watched treasure hunters from Monday and then hung out and watched Master of Disguise later...good times
Yesterday—long day..woke up and mowed the lawn..after that I lounged out by the pool, Oh, how nice that was. I got some more color, came in and read some more of my wonderful book. Haha. Later went to rob’s house…Patrice said she would call with plans, so I told Lauren I would inform her later..the time went by and no phone call..so rob, mrs stoop and myself played scrabble and yahtzee…haha…then I called Patrice she said her, alex and Kelly were over alex’s watching friends, well I didn’t get a call hehe, so me Lauren, rob and cece went to cece’s at like 9:30 and watched Practical magic…great movie with Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock..elise and I love her! Elise showed up OBVIOUSLY, after basketball. The Hajnas were out of their infamous iced tea which broke my little heart. HAHA! Anyhow..we finished the movie…after having to stop for me to take rob home and Lauren to go home. Then elise and I left around 12:30 to go home. Left cece’s house and we went down knights everything was fine, elise and I were having a nice conversation and then I turned onto Dunsberry (sp) w/e…and halfway down the street I couldn’t go past 20 mph, so then I tried to brake and it was hard..so I told elise the car was acting funny and I couldn’t go over 15 mph, so I pulled over, and the car basically died…I tried to start it and nothing, put on my flashers and called my dad. Haha, him and mama came and got me and elise and took elise home…me and mom went to the house to get some gas and we went back.. it wasn’t the gas, or the battery…it ended up being the fuel pump..nothing I did, we needed to get it replaced and we did..so now everything is fine. Haha, im glad I didn’t panic..elise and I were just afraid we’d get raped.
Today—woke up like at 1 b/c I didn’t get in until around 3 haha…and spent the day with my sister b/c that is what we had planned. We went to toys r’ us and bought 3 new board games and played 1313 dead end drive from rob. Haha, we laughed and had fun, I enjoyed the day overall…we also went to steve and barry’s and yelled at them for not having Penn State or Scranton..assholes haha. Watched big brother and so you think you can dance..and basically had a very enjoyable night
THAT IS ALL!
But this is something I must say. Not really..haha.. I value my friends so much, and you know who you are. There are some friends that I have that I know would do anything for me and I for them. I just don’t get how I must always be the one to call every1 for plans..doesn’t anyone else have a brain to call and make plans. Also, why must we all never hang out together, I miss that.
This is separate but I just thought of it, also lately over the course of like this month I found out the names of like 5 people who never liked me for a few years now…What I must say to them is simple. For being the people of integrity that you all swear you are, being the smart people you think you are, you are pretty stupid. Yes, you may have more book smart then I, but one thing you don’t have over me is a personality, also, street smarts, and the ability to talk to people and not act superior to them. So although you may have been smarter than me in high school, don’t say shit about me being stupid, or not deserving my rank, or anything along that shit. I did fine without all of you, and frankly, am glad that you are out of my life because you are the most two-faced, arrogant people that I know, and frankly, I don’t give a damn my dear….You can go and be fake to people at your colleges.
That is not about any of my close friends obviously, because I love them! Anyhow, I know how amazing this summer has been thus far and I can’t wait to see what else it has in store. Zoo, road trip, bowling, laser tag, peddler’s village, rice’s flea market, new york, broadway, Williamsburg, amazing books, EVERYTHING!
By the way..Elise, Lauren and Cece…and any1 else…you guys should listen to this song and read the lyrics..it is very beautiful….Why by Annie Lennox!
“That's the risk you take if you change: that people you've been involved with won't like the new you. But other people who do will come along.”
“It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not.”
“Change is inevitable, except from vending machines.”
