8 Days till Dance Party 1. ♥
I am in love with this song. I've listened to it like 4 times already...without a break, ahaha.
Tomorrow morning I'm running errands and doing some shopping. Then, tomorrow night, I'm going to see Valencia and Lux Courageous. Should be a good time.
Sunday I have to talk in church about my trip. eh. I'm not looking forward to that, no one will listen to me anyway. Sarah's a dork and isn't doing it.
I didn't even realize it's labor day weekend. hmmm. hahaha.

Okay.
I have a new layout.
New comment links too...Does anyone know how to make the comment links bigger? I can't do that. eh.
Plus...the font at the top...I want to change that around to lyrics, if someone knows how to do that...that would be awesome.

I want a new layout.
I might play around with that tonight.
I went to drop stuff off to sarah at work...and I had to convince the army man at the gate to let me on base. ahahaha. He was kind of funny. Sarah and I began plans. Even though it's not till October...it's a lot of planning to get it together. ahahaha.
I went shopping today. I ordered the cordoroys (sp? whatever) from J. Crew that I wanted...they are sooo soft. I found the denim blazer/jacket that I wanted. woo.
Tomorrow, I'm actually going to Cherry Hill...I want to go to H&M. I swear, I don't really shop that much...my aunt has just given me a list of things to buy myself, ahaha.
Jack's Mannequin is amazing. Seriously. The new cd feels like my life on a cd. I love it.

ahahaha. This is what happens when you take two swimmers to an aquariumCollapse )

I just put on the ending of "Date My Mom". It was one where the moms were finding dates for their lesbian daughters...and the girl who went on the dates just said "Ariel is like Harry Potter with a vagina!"
ahahahahahahahah.
Harry Potter always makes love connections. ♥

If we lose love and self respect for each other, this is how we finally die. [23 Aug 2005|12:01pm]
There is a good chance that in September, I will be able to go see Maya Angelou speak. ahhh. She's speaking at the college where my mom works, my mom came home all excited the other day because she knows she's my favorite poet/author. My mom wants to go too. I am so excited, ahaha.
In other news, I have an interview tomorrow. The district doesn't have anything "permanent", but they are in desperate need of subs. The secretary to the superintendent told me that I could get calls every day to sub there...and most districts have said they don't hire anyone who hasn't been a sub in their district already. Soooo...your prayers would be greatly appreciated.
I'm giving blood today...then helping with VBS stuff. Then I'm going to buy the JM cd. ♥ Then it's off to see The Skeleton Key with Dana.
I was looking through my photobucket accounts...and decided to do this again.
Things that make me smileCollapse )

There's a show on Friday...money goes to the yellow ribbon foundation.
I want to go see Desoto Jones, Valencia and Lux Courageous. I'm a group leader for VBS until 8, though. I feel bad for wanting to ditch it to go to the show...but I do. I'm just waiting for someone to let me know times and such.
If anyone has extra FOB tickets for the 9th...Je needs them, and so does Alex. Let me know!
Time to go eat some dinner...

I love this song.

[And today was a day just like any other]

I'm on the verge, I'm on the verge
Unraveling with every word
With every word you say, make me believe
That I won't feel your tires on the street
As I'm finding the words... you're getting away

I come undone, oh yes, I do
Just think of all the thoughts wasted on you
And every word you say, say something sweet
Cause all I taste is blood between my teeth
As I'm finding the words... you're getting away

Well I'm ready, I'm ready to drop
Oh, I'm ready, I'm ready so don't stop
I'm ready so don't stop, Keep pushing
I'm ready to fall, oh, I'm ready
I'm ready so don't call, I'm ready so don't call

I am aware, I've been misled
I disconnect my heart, my head
Don't wanna recognize when things go bad
The things that you'll accept
Accept that I am finding the words... to say

I'm ready, I'm ready to drop
Oh oh oh oh oh, I'm ready
I'm ready so don't stop
I'm ready so don't stop

[I wake up to find it's another
Four aspirin morning, and I dive in
I put on the same clothes I wore yesterday.
When did society decide that we had to change
And wash a tee shirt after every individual use:
If it's not dirty, I'm gonna wear it.
I take the stairs to the car
And there's fog on the windows.
(And I'm finding the words...)
I need caffeine in my blood stream,
I take caffeine in the blood stream.
I grip the wheel and all at once I realize:
(And you're getting away...)
My life has become a boring pop song
And everyone's singing along.]

Well, I'm ready, to drop, well, I'm ready
I'm ready so don't stop, oh
Well, keep pushing, I'm ready to fall
Well, I'm ready, I'm ready so don't call
I'm ready so don't call, oh, oh, oh...
I'm ready let go.. let go..

I was reading our church newsletter today...and I came across this article that an older lady from my church wrote. I think it's a really good thing.
"What a pleasant surprise I had upon meeting with the young home builders. They had stories to tell about their trip, they were appreciative that we came to welcome them back. They were polite as well as respectufl. Only two of us from the 11:00 service meeting were there to welcome them, but they (the young home builders) kept saying 'thank you, thank you, thank you.' I thank them because I admit I was one of the peopel who thought these young people were only going for a fun vacation. I apologize because I found them to be true young Christians who were doing more than 'lip service' as many of the adults do. We need to meet with these young people and show that we care."
I think that a lot of the people in our church need to read that.

Oh. While I'm thinking of it, Sarah...we are the queens of distraction and I never remember to ask you. Are you going to go to the TEN show with me? hahahaha.

Jack's Mannequin comes out Tuesday. ♥

I'm back from DE.
It was a really nice trip. It was nice to not have to worry about anything...and to spend time with my grandmother. We did some awesome shopping over the weekend. One day we went out on Chincoteague. I love that place so much...I really thought about it, I've been going there since I was 3. That's a long time. We went on over to Assateague, walked one of the trails and then went out on the beach. It was absolutely beautiful. I'm sorry I didn't have my bathing suit with me, it was warm and calm. I took pics, when my batteries are all charged, I'll post the pics.
I'm definitely going to see Fall Out Boy, The Starting Line, Motion City Soundtrack, Panic! At The Disco and Boys Night out on the 9th of October. Oh yessss. It'll be a good time. It's a Sunday...so I'm thinking we'll go early. :)
My new shoes from this weekend:


these I got with a hot pink background, not blue...


I need to order tickets for The Early November/Houston Calls/Day At The Fair/The Progress soon.
I need a school to hire me, so I can stop being nervous.

I just talked to my mom on instant messenger. ahahaha.
Went to Ann Taylor today. :) I got a sweater and a pair of black pants with a pink pinstripe. Then, at old navy, I got a cute yoga pants set...plus new white flip flops to replace the ones my grandmother's dog ate.
Tomorrow we might go to the movies.
My aunt made me a purse, I realized I hadn't typed about it in here. It's amazing. She read an article about a lady whose father had died in the towers on 9-11...and she had a woman make purses out of her dad's old ties. My aunt liked the idea, and made 4 of them. One for me, one for her, one for my mom and one for my mommom. They all have a mustang on them, because that was what my grandfather was about. A big chunk of his mustang tie is right in the middle of my bag. I love it. ♥ When I get home I'll post pictures.
That's pretty much it for now.

So long and goodnight. [16 Aug 2005|09:02am]
Going to Rehobeth today. :) Hopefully I'll find some good stuff.
I don't know what else we're doing this week, probably the movies one day...because my grandmother doesn't usually go to the movies.
Friday I'm ordering my Nintendo Fusion tickets. I'm def. excited about that show. Oh yesssss. Pop and Lock Queen dance party. ahaha.

I need to go shower now...

I bought one of these yesterday, too.

The money goes to the PCRF kids fund.
I wore it all day yesterday. Matt T. had one on his guitar strap, plus a bunch of other people had them. I meant to go back and listen to the whole Jack's Mannequin cd, they had it at the booth...like a little listening party. I completely forgot, though.

"Wait, is this Philly or Jersey?" [13 Aug 2005|10:56am]
Yesterday was Warped Tour in Camden. ahahaha. It was so hot and sticky. Jason and I got up early and went out to breakfast, we figured we wouldn't want to eat food at the venue. After breakfast, we went to the riverline station. We timed it perfectly, we only had to wait 5 minutes for the next train. We got on the train, actually able to get seats. The closer we got to Camden, the more people there were packing in the car. haha. Doors opened like 10 minutes after we got there. We didn't want to get there early, it's not like there was just one stage we wanted to be in front of all day...plus it was too hot. We got in, found all the stages...figured out what bands we wanted to see and at what times. We ended up seeing (a few we only saw part of their set) Senses Fail (wonderful, as usual...the pit, of course, opened up right in front of me...but it's okay...because there was more space for air, ahaha), Relient K (It was Matt's bday), A Sense Of Belonging, Desoto Jones, The Transplants, Reggie And The Full Effect, Valient Thor, Riverboat (rivercity? no...that's notit) Gamblers, Mae, My Chemical Romance, Mest, Fall Out Boy, The Starting Line, Gratitude, Strung Out, MxPx, Story Of The Year, Hot Rod Circuit (ahh. During Ready, Andy came out and sang with Kenny. ahhhhhhhh. Let me tell you how wonderful that was.). It was hot, there were a ton of people there, I breathed in a ton of smoke and dust...but I had so much fun. The Starting Line's crowd around me was not so good, I'm used to my usual TSL girls I go to the shows with...so I was dancing all by myself, ahaha. Halfway through the day, the EMTs had mini-fire hoses...and they were spraying the crowd down. It felt waaaaaay better after I was sprayed...but my clothes were still damp on the train on the way home...and it was freezing. hahaha. I was happy to finally see Fall Out Boy, and I definitely wasn't disapointed. They put on a great show...and I have to tell Je that THE FRO was BIGGER. Oh yessss. Wait till October, ahahaha. I saw people I knew, from other concerts in Philly and such. Right before Senses Fail started, this girl came up to me and was like "You'll probably think I'm crazy...but I know you and your brother...Remember? I was at Yellowcard in Philly when we had the big line party!" ahaha. It was Ryann...how completely random that in 20,000 people we saw each other. haha.
Nintendo Fusion on October 9th. yesss. I'm going to try my best to get tickets to that date, it'll be easier to get to than the monday night show.
That's pretty much it. Kind of a shortened warped update...oh well. I'll post pics when I get them developed.

So, today I realized that I have never read The Great Gatsby. I got it from the library today.
Today was LBI with Jess, Amanda and Teresa. The weather was perfect for the beach. It was sunny and hot, but a nice breeze off of the ocean. The waves were huge. Apparently good surfing waves...We went out in the water, got thrown all around...swam around...it was fun. One wave picked me up as I tried to go under it...I got stuck in the water swirling around under it. hahah. It was really kind of funny. I came up for air, just as the wave sucked me back down and smashed my face into the sand. It really sounds bad, but it was actually funny. After I fixed my suit (ha!) I came back up and went back out with the girls. Jess definitely got thrown all around too. Teresa was nervous to go out where it was deeper, but we took her out there...and she actually had fun. :)
Tomorrow is Warped Tour. Hopefully it will be fun.

New layout [10 Aug 2005|03:03pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]


New layout...it matches my myspace page now. :)
I went to a couple of districts and dropped off resumes and things today. The lady in Southampton was really nice, I'm putting in a sub application for their district. Even if I don't get a job right away, I can always sub until something opens up. That way the district gets to know who I am, how I teach and such.
Tomorrow is the beach with Jess and Dana. I'm excited, the three of us haven't gone together all summer!
Friday is warped tour. I'll be sure to take my beach bag. ♥ hahaha.
Still looking for mmix cds ideas...I have to drive to my grandmother's this weekend, I will need stuff to listen to. You should give me some good ideas. :)

Warped is Friday. I'm excited. It should be a good time...I'm not sure if I want to take my camera in, though. TEN is playing with Houston Calls, A Day At The Fair and The Progress at the grange...I want to go, it's even on a Saturday night. That works out with my work sched! Then, in October, Sarah and I are going to showcase our amazing dance moves to Panic! At The Disco. ahahahahah. ♥ Plus, she'll finally get to see TSL. woo.
Today, I'm going to districts to drop of resumes and such. ahhhhh. It makes me nervous. Prayers would be appreciated, haha. :)
Yesterday I had lunch with Kristy and Jess. It was so much fun to hang out again, we were the only ones in Fridays at first, ahahaha...We just got to be our loud selves. Jess and I then went to look at a hall for her reception...It seemed like a good place.
I need to finish getting ready now...
