I think that I'm becoming friends with my mother.

Earlier this weekend I broke up with the guy I was seeing. Not a huge deal, it just wasn't at all what I was looking for. Anyway, the conversation I had with my mom was just like a conversation I'd have with a friend about it.

I used to find it strange in high school when people would have relationships like that with their parents. Not that there is anything wrong with it -- I just could never see myself confiding in my parents about my love life.

But now it seems that the older I get, the more I want to share with them, and the more I value their opinions.

I must be growing up.


If tonight is any indication, this summer is going to be really fuckin' fun.

Earlier I was really sleepy and just wanted to do absolutely nothing. Then I found out that a guy who I dated in high school happened to be visiting his sister, who happens to live with a friend of mine from school. When I heard this, I had to go out...

A few drinks at the Oasis were followed by many, many drinks at the Dome. I learned that I should have partied more with the people in my program -- they are surprisingly fun, big drinkers.

A guy remembers me wearing a red silk dress at Charity Ball... That didn't happen. Never worn a red silk dress in my life.

It's late now... I must go to bed... Class and work tomorrow. But let me just put it on record now -- This summer will rock.

Oh yeah -- Veela, I saw your twin tonight. Did you come to HFX and not tell me?!


Remember that paper I was writing in the last post? With just 40 minutes until it was due, I finished it... Just as I was going to go back and format, the power in the computer lab shut off and came back on. I breathed a sigh of relief, as I had just saved my paper...

Then Liz told me about this program on the computers at school. You can save things to the hard drive, but when the computer shuts down, it erases everything that was saved.

Do you see where this story is going?

I had only saved it there. I didn't back it up on a disk or email it to myself.

The entire paper is gone. Lost. Never to be retrieved.

I ran to my professors office, had a minor breakdown and got an extension. Even still, today really, really sucks.

However, at least I'm not a porn star.

Where are all the updates?

Everyone is far, far too busy with school. Finals and papers are stressing me out.

I have 3.5 hours to write 1346 words on crisis communications.

Hurrah for Thursday, when all this will be over and I can chill out.

I couldn't live without dancing.


I went to the Oasis on Thursday and had an awesome time. Before we went there, we had a few pre-drinks at a friends house... It was a lot of fun, but kinda sad too. It's weird to think that in a few months some of these people will be gone and we'll never ever party together like this again.

While we were there I was talking with a guy from home and he brought up how he knows me from the radio station -- 'the girl on chvo'. It's funny that I haven't worked there since high school and it still defines me somewhat. Funny-weird and also funny-sad.

Anyway, it's time for destiny. heehee.


Sign you don't call home enough:

Relatives you didn't even know were pregnant start giving birth.
