Well, this has just been rotting in a corner of cyberspace, hasn't it?
If you thought a lot had happened before, you should see my life now!
I'm a senior in college.
I'm a Walt Disney World Cast Member. And it was and continues to be the best experience of my life.
I have a new boyfriend, who lives in Florida. I apparently have the inability to have non-long distance relationships. Whatever.
My brother is getting married.
And I'm surrounded by a myriad of the most wonderful people in the world.
This is just a quick update to say I'm alive, but no where near the same person I was.
Well hey. I was nudged by tadashi_chan
. And it said that I hadn't posted in 97 weeks. Which is a veryveryvery long time. I had to check what had been going on in my life 97 weeks ago. Let's just say some things have changed.
I'm no longer in high school. I'm a full blooded college kid. William Jewell College. My home away from home. Even crazier. I'm almost done with my freshman year. Which has been a good one, and part of me will be sad to see it go, but another part of me knows that there's just bigger and better things in store for me. And I'm also ready for a break from classes. And to see people over the summer. Like my MOM.
I'm also almost twenty. Yikes. That just sounds so scary for some reason. I won't be a teenager anymore ;.;
I have a really great boyfriend. Who has a very generic name. Chris Allen. :P He's definitely a keeper (I'd like to think anyway!) We got together senior year in high school, and managed a year apart. (I go to school in Kansas City, MO and he goes to school in Atlanta, GA which is a good 14 hour drive away. Which is also totally lame.)
I got my first job (at college) working for The Harriman-Jewell Series. We bring the best in performing arts to the Kansas City Area. (Because I don't read that often or anything.) It's pretty legit, I like it.
I went from being a psychology major, to a music major, to just plain undecided and now I'm a Business Administration with an Emphasis in Marketing, Psychology, and ACT-IN major. And a music minor. Am I crazy? Yes. Will it be worth it? I like to think so.
My goal in life is to work for Disney. And I plan to do an internship with them next spring. Hopefully in the entertainment department. Because that would make my life. I went to see the Chairman of Disney's Consumer Products speak about a week or two ago, and he blew my mind. He was so amazing. And I've never been more convinced about what I need to do with my life. I'll be the CEO someday. Just you wait and see.
Enough about college. Senior year. Oh my goodness. What an amazing time. I had more fun than any person should (and also shared enough stresses to go along with it.) My marching band did the most amazing show ever (The Dark Side of Genius: Hitchcock and Hermann. Its on youtube. Watch that shit :P ) and I was finally on the color guard. Which is something I should have been on my freshman year and every year since. Winter guard had a unique show, about tennis. Which was also way legit. And it was fun! I lovelovelovelovelove my guard. (And they will always be my guard in my heart) Prom was the best night of my life. I had my dress that resembled Belle, and made my life complete. I had my boyfriend who is amazing. We watched Slumdog Millionaire afterwards, and then about four, we went out to an all-night diner, and the went to Walmart, where we bought bubbles and blew them out the window the whole way home. Which sounds dumb, but I've never had so much fun. We fell asleep on my couch watching Aladdin ♥ Some people say that high school was horrible. But I wouldn't trade my high school experience. I met some of the greatest and most intelligent people in the world, who are all going on to do great things. And I feel blessed to have known them (and hope that I keep them in the I still know them category) And I look forward to seeing them over the summer, and partying it up like there's no tomorrow.
Writing this, I realize I have so many things to be grateful for. And I realize that no matter what happens, I have lived to the best of my ability, and I'm happy for that at least. Yeah, it would be great to live a long prosperous life, but if I dropped dead tomorrow (which I hope doesn't happen!) I know that I lived with what I was given. And I made sure to make the most of it.
I love you all.
Even if you don't remember me from those long 97 weeks ago.
May you live your life to the fullest as well, and take not a single moment for granted, because you will never know when it will be your last.

But then I realize how much effort that would take...
Long time no see, right?
I'm a busy person. And currently on summer vacation, so I guess I have a little time to look at this again...
Hmhmhm... I know I haven't been on here in like a year and a half, but I'm still not sure I have anything to say! I was just looking through my bookmarks, and found some old LJ ones, so then I decided to check them out, and here I am again...
Well, I'm going to be a senior this year? And legal? I dunno it doesn't really seem that real yet...
And I need to find a job so I can pay for guard, and voice, and choir, but no one will hire me and it sucks a lot! Stupid working world wanting experience, but not letting me get any. LAME. *sigh*
Guard is already kicking my butt, however. I'm hellas sore. The amount of sit-ups she makes us do is ridiculous. And then the tae-bo. Which you really wouldn't think of as high impact and painful, but man is it. 4 hours of practice is beastly. Especially when you're sick, which I currently am, and have been since I left for my cousin's wedding last Thursday. Kate (my voice teacher) asked me when I had guard, so we could plan lessons, and I told her from 3:30 - 7:30, and she was like... That's 4 hours, and I was like I know. She asked how I did it, and I said I really had no idea. It was a terribly painful realization.
So, cousin's wedding was gorgeous, as is my cousin's wife :) (although I suppose that means shes my cousin now too...) Gorgeous <3
Ummmm, I should be cleaning the house or something, so I really must go.
Maybe I'll be back before next year, who knows?
We interuppt our previous hiatus, to bring you this message.
HAPPY (late) BIRTHDAY JOUNOUCHI!
I'm a terrible fangirl, and a day late, but its okay, because I still love you to death!!

HOLY SHIT WE WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON! HECK YES!!!! GO CARDINALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh. And a veryveryveryveryveryveryvery happy belated birthday to you, Kaiba Seto. I'm sorry I had school and homework on the day of your birth. I love you anyway. ....And Jou loves you too ♥
The first "week" of school has come to a close.
And all my teachers are like, "Look, you don't have school for two days, we need to make up for that by giving you eight days worth of homework!" No, really, its okay, there's no need teachers. Really.
I'm so glad its the weekend, and it wasn't even a full week of school.
So uh yeah. Marching band is rolling around just fine, and I went to the Theatre company meeting today, which was cool. ohmygosh I'm all involved and stuff.
Bah, so far, I like most of my teachers. Abney always being the exception. I'm sitting in front of his desk, and all my friends are all the way across the room. wth. what did I do? I was the good one! besides the fact that I never partcipitated.
Yeah, so I hate my Honors Geometry class, 'cause its all freshmen and sopohomores I hate with a passion, because they are rude, mean and inconsiderate. But its kinda okay, because I totally love my teacher.
But yeah. I hope I don't get too overwhelmed in AP World, 'cause we have a test a week and a DBQ a week, but I have a feeling I'll get the hang of it and be fine. (or at least, I really hope.)
Mrs. Brandt is totally on crack. Like really. Miles even agrees with me. But its cool, yo.
I miss my lazy days of summer. Even if it is nice to see people again. I liked sleep and being able to do things D:
My brother gave me the PS2, and hopefully, I'll have time to play it.
...I really want to eat that candy on my userpic.
I'M GETTING A CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
