So, hello everyone. It's been quite a while since I've written, huh? Okay you can tell it's been a long time because something just flashed and apparently this entry has an autosaved draft. Okaaaaaaay then.

I finished my Junior Year of college in May, and I've been home on summer vacation since. School was good; same old same old. I did well, enjoyed myself and had fun. I went back to work at the library again this summer (Year 7 what what!), but I worked about half as much as last year which turned out to be a good decision (20 hrs-ish this summer). It gave me more time to myself, more time to relax, more time to watch Giada/Judge Judy and various other TV delights, and I didn't have to work with Carolyn! FYI, it's a long story, but Carolyn = Devil Woman who needs to die. Or atleast have acid thrown in her face a la Seal (wow that's really wrong, sorry).

I went to Florida a couple of weeks ago, which was really fun too. We went to Universal in Orlando (where we actually went last year). We were going to go somewhere different, but apparently my parents had lots of rewards points from American Express and our hotel was completely free and we got a few plane tickets free too. Free = trip. Even though we went last year, it was still amazing and it wasn't boring at all. They're taking away the Back to the Future ride (Okaaaaay it opened in 1991 but whatever, it's such a good ride) but atleast it was still there when we went. We flew out on a friday, and the day before was the day all those terror arrests in the UK were made and all the plane plots were uncovered, and all the liquid bans etc started. That = scary, I have to say. I'm not the best person with planes, but I can deal with them... but when you hear about all of this the day before you fly, it definitely gets you nervous. It's funny too, because in '03 we went to Las Vegas and the day before we came out that huge blackout hit the Northeast (and at that point nobody knew how it was caused, either). Suffice to say, my new life's motto is: "If I can walk there or drive there I don't want to be there" :D

So, we got back and stayed at the shore at NJ. We actually flew in and out of Atlantic City. I have this little record going at Casinos.. I had been 4/4 in casino trips - I always win! I won $400 the day after I turned 21! :D So yeah, we stayed over at Caesar's before our trip and of course I went and played. I was actually down $30 or so, and I was like "Wow this is a bleakocity" and then I played this ridiculous 5 cent Pink Panther slot machine, and on my first try I won $45! Streak in tact. One streak that has fallen apart is my no ticket streak... it was uncermoniously ended by some stupid cop who gave me a stupid parking ticket, SCREW YOU!

My whole family stayed in NJ this past week, but I went back to NY to work. I didn't feel comfortable saying I was leaving work on like August 2nd, particularlly because I was late in notifying them I needed time off. So, I was home alone from Mon - Today. I didn't really want to go back to NY, but I'm actually really glad I did.. it's good to have the house to yourself sometimes and to getaway (GETAWAY!) from the family. Except for the whole episode on Wednesday when I came home from work at 8pm and all the lights were off in the house and I was convinced some serial killer - slash - burglar was in the house and going to kill me, it was all good. I shopped for real groceries for myself for the first time (as in, food I need to eat for real meals) and cooked for myself and didn't burn the house down. It was good practice for me because I'll be living in Empire Commons on campus this year, which are University Apartments. It's the best of both worlds... your own room, no dorms, bathroom, a washer/dryer in the apt (THAT'S FREE!), air conditioning, a full kitchen, etc etc.. and you're still on campus so it's convenient. I'm really looking forward to it.

So I write you this from the shore.. I'll probably go to the beach tomorrow, and who knows what else I'll be up to. Random gripe - my brother and sister pissed me off within like 60 seconds of being home, haha. Just annoying and they were kinda rude and not in the fun way, and I was like whatever! Who needs them! Alright, this was like my life's story in journal format, sorry for the long entry.. just keeping you up to date (since I've become a friends-page whore as of late and haven't written in ages).

PS - This song is bleak.

Whoa, is that you, Matty? :o

Is that the new Killers song? I kinda like it. Takes a while to grow on you.

Excited for your last year in college? ;)

It is! :D

Yeah, it is. I'll admit it's growing on me - and the climax is good at the end - but I don't know. I expected more. I hope the album is good.

I am! :D It's a little nerve wracking/scary/crazy that it's here already though. I'll make sure to enjoy it while I can. :D

Weeeeeeeeeeeeee. :D

I expected the song to be the same as the songs on their first album but that wasn't really the case. I hope the album is good too. It has a lot to live up to.

That's the spirit! I remember my last semester of college. I only took three classes, lmao. It's good to take lots of classes before your senior year so that you can relax during your last year. ;)

WHAT UP I. SEEEEEEEEEEEE! :D

I was like, wtf is up with all of these things going on in LJ, it obviously isn't early 2005 anymore. :( :( I don't even remember when my last entry was, but I still read about everyone else's trials and tribulations like it's my job and comment too. And the Gospel = best thing ever. People should feel LUCKY to be able to read such brilliance, not call us crazy. :(
