I'm assuming this is a populated tropical paradise, and not a deserted island.

1) A long book
2) Swimsuit
3) Sunscreen as I'm fair skinned
4) Hammock
5) Rum as I'm also assuming I can find some coconuts on the beach :D

Honestly, I completely forgot this even existed. I came back to read some journal posts about Dragon*Con, went to sign up, and was sad that my typical username was taken. So, I typed the username in to see who could've possibly been using it instead, and Lo and Behold! It was my journal all along!

Mostly, I came back for all of the great Dragon*Con resources. I found a great community called Dropbydragoncon so I can try to get healthy again, which I've been jonesin' to do for a while.

And, so, here I am! Back again!

One of my friends had his best friend shoot himself over the weekend. In front of him.

I don't know the story; I know he's relayed it too many times for me to ask him. I just want to help him keep his mind off of it for now.

I can't even imagine what it would be like to watch my best friend in the world shoot herself in the head. I would be devastated.

RIP Rhoslyn

Rhoslyn, a white 1999 V6 Ford Mustang convertible, was officially declared mechanically totaled at approximately 10:40 am today. She was declared as such after a mechanic said that they would have to take apart the transmission in order to simply diagnose the problem, and that she would either need a new transmission or a new engine in the end.

Even though her top leaked, she enjoyed long stretches of open road and late night drives to nowhere with her owner. She also enjoyed the radio blaring, rumbling starts, and short bouts of curvy roads at decent speeds.

She is already missed dearly.

1999 - 2008

I really want a foot massage.

But I'm also kind of weird about my feet.  Feet are weird.  And mine are excessively ticklish.

Yup.

I start my new job today.  I have to be there at 9.  I'm kind of nervous.

I'm work for a shared office space between a husband and wife.  He owns an investment capital brokerage (stocks and stuff) and she is a realtor, and sounds like she handles mostly rentals.  For now, I'm just the assistant, running errands and doing data entry, but as soon as I get my property management license she's going to pay me commission for showing rentals (if people rent them, at least).  And as long as I work out at first (which I should) they want to keep me on for as long as possible, and mentioned hiring me full-time after college.  If that's what I want to do, at least.

Wish me luck!

Comment on this post. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post your this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along!

Mine's from tisonlyame.

Orange:  It's my favorite color!  I love all things orange.  It's such a bright, sunny color.  But at the same time you can get darker shades and it be all romantic-esque.   And oranges are tasty, too. 

Import cars:  This one I should probably specify on.  I don't like Hondas.   I do like Hyundais and Mazdas, and Mitsubishis are decent, too.  I also don't like ricers, because if you're going to go through the effort to have your car sound like a crotch rocket, just buy an f-ing crotch rocket.  I like them because they're hot and fast and generally have nice curves.  Not to say I don't like good ol' fashioned American muscle too, though.

Fairies:  They're pretty and sparkly and fancy and they can fly!  I'm so jealous.  I want big fancy wings and to flutter around dancing on flowers and sprinkling glitter!  Plus, I'm trying to convince my mom that she and I need to get matching naked fairy tattoos.  They're fun and awesome.

Aruba:  My favorite place on earth!  I love Aruba!  It's beautiful, and everyone is so friendly and it feels really safe.  Half the island is resort-esque and the other half is desert.  Plus it's outside the hurricane belt.  And even in the summer it's nice and breezy and not deathly hot.

Reading: Yay books!  I love that they can take you away from here to wherever you want to go and be another person in another time or place or universe.  Or you can just learn about things that interest you.  I like to read psychology novels sometimes, about people and their conditions and how it's affected their lives and such.  It's interesting.

Leopard print: Holy cow am I obsessed with big cats.  You should see my room.  I have leopard print sheets, a tiger painted on bamboo strips, a cheetah print on my wall, a cougar print on my wall, 4 or 5 stuffed lions, a wood lion carved in Kenya or somewhere like that.... Not to mention the lioness tattooed on my shoulder.  And that I think I want to work with big cats.  So, yes.  It's an interest, some would say.

Motorcycles
:  I grew up in a Harley family.  My uncle had a bike when I was a kid and I was halfway raised in his house, and my parents both got Harleys when I was 16.  Now my mom has a brand new one and my dad has a Victory Vegas.  Oh, and I've always liked them.  I dated a guy when I was 16/17 who had a crotch rocket, and I loved it.  And I got to ride around town bitch on a Hayabusa one weekend.  It was insane.  I always hit on guys with bikes, since I can't yet afford my own.  I want a crotch rocket, but I wouldn't turn down a cruiser.

 So, lots of stuff has happened.  I took Maymester summer class (got an A)  and am halfway through Summer I session with 2 classes.  Also, I work at Applebee's now so I have this money thing again.  And I have a roommate.  I work with her, and she's cool.

I currently go to school 3 hrs a day Mon-Fri and work 40+ hours a week.  I think this is going to kill me, but it's only 2 more weeks.

Don't really have time to update right now but wanted to give a basic life-ness.

Miss you!

I love life again.  Isn't everyone uber excited?  I know I am.

Also, I'm officially a concert whore.  Katie proudly pointed out that I went to 3 Souls Harbor shows in the span of 1 week (thanks for Godsmack, Tony!!!) and made SH cupcakes and cookies.  Shannon says she can't figure out if I'm their baker or their groupie.  I'm going with neither, just a fan who appreciates them. 

Anyway, I have great friends, and fun, and craziness. 

And I still need a job and my first summer session starts Tuesday with one of my psych classes.

And I have a great idea for a painting or three, but no details shall be revealed yet.  Yay!

Yay for Home! [May. 4th, 2007|03:31 am]

I officially have my own first home. I still don't have a couch/real kitchen table/washer and dryer, but I live here. I have traffic signs on the walls of the living room, a traffic light to figure out how to hang, and my bedroom is leopard print/jungle everything. I even took down my bathroom door (it's connected to my bedroom) and put up a leopard print beaded curtain. I'm going to hang black drapes across it for when I need the privacy, but it's super cool (and by cool I mean Lauren).

I'm still negative one roommate, but I have 2 potentials and another almost potential, so hopefully one of them will work out.

I'm also still negative one job. Too bad I can't be a professional snake-player-wither (in the non-sexual way). But my friend's trying to get me a job in the scuba shop, which would be cool. But I'd have to make a commitment to work in the shop for a while because apparently the owner lady has been screwed over a lot by people starting then using the discount for stuff then quitting, and I don't know if I want to make a commitment since I don't want to scuba professionally.

Razi's home again. I gave her actual wood substrate, and it's much prettier/she seems happier/she looks better on it now. I need to order some mice wholesale, though. I love my baby.

Yup, that's all I've got for now. Yay!

YAY!

Now, to find a roommate.
