YAY!!!! so i get to tell people no! and its ok!!! yippy!!! tee hee ha ha!! two hours left...i was supposed to come in at 10am...but for some reason even though i knew it was 10am i still didn't realize that i had to be there at 10. so i definatly was getting ready to leave once i realized that it was that late when my ma called and asked where i was. damn. i just wasn't thinking. at all. weird...that's how my day started and that's how its been going!! right so i'm going to go and do some work. yup. bye friends! call me cus i'll be home home tonight and i might be bored!!

:: Music: that guy and that santana guy

holy fuck i hate uhaul. i REALLY hate uhaul in the summer though!!! it was busy today. there is still like 10 people STILL waiting for tomorrow. i'm coming in at 8:30 instead of 10 so i can drive to sturgis and back. WOO HOO! but hey its like an hour and a half overtime...well no ok its not. cus i only worked 1-7 and that would've given me only like 38 hours and with the extra hour and a half its up to like 39 1/2 so i have to stay an extra hour tomorrow so i can get some sort of overtime. i heart overtime. time and a half at $8.50 isn't bad for a college girl like myself.

so i saw jennie for the last time before her birthday i think yesterday. we spent the day together. i am going to miss her more than she knows. she is my best friend, i tell her EVERYTHING. and i mean everything. she knows me inside and out. we went to get her hair cut, it looks REALLY cute! and then to lunch at olga's and to a movie, The Prince and Me (whoa whoa whoa hot boy in the movie. i swear i think i almost fainted, so hott!!!) and then to her house. we were chillin and talking and we decided we wanted to go hot tubbing...well the only person we knew that had a hot tub was laura traverse city. so we decided to call her up and travel the like 2 hours and to up to TC for the night. granted i had to work at 1 today and we didn't leave til like 7:30 but it was still cool, i had a great time!! plus i love just riding in the car and listening to the radio and talking. it was great. so it was a pretty good day. which is nice cus i work the rest of the week, and its going to be hell. pure hell. i have to put in the days for the next two weeks that i want off (i get two days off a week) so if anyone wants to hang out or do something let me know before saturday and i'll make some time for you! ;) i'll need to break into the liquor supply at the apartment after this week. which will be fun, although odd's are i'll be there by myself...but that's ok. i can always drunk dial people and talk online drunk. that's ALWAYS fun! haha haha not really. i think i may be listening to too much switchfoot lately, i just love their songs. none really have any special meaning, they are just pretty. well ok..time for real work. i may come back and do a survay or something if i get my shit done before 7. oh the grades...they are posted...not even going to comment...they are bad...bad like whoa...i am going to study a WHOLE lot more this semester, no more drinking every weekend and hanging out to all hours of the night on the week days, i have to get my shit together if i want to graduate next fall semester.

:: Music: on fire - switchfoot

boring day
work was boring. i definatly spent about 6 hours reading a i got last night and now its done..damn...but anyway i love this song so i thought i would write it in here!

On Fire - Switchfoot

They tell you where you need to go
They tell you when you need to leave.
They tell you what you need to know
They tell you who you need to be.

But everything inside you
knows there's more than what you've heard
There so much more than empty conversations
filled with empty words

And you're on fire
when he's near you
You're on fire when he speaks
You're on fire burning at these mysteries.

Give me one more time around
give me more chance to see,
Give me everything you are
Give me one more chance to be near you.

When everything inside me
Looks like everything i hate
You are the hope I have for change
You are the only hope I'll take

And I'm on fire when you're near me
I'm on fire when you speak
I'm on fire burning at these mysteries.

I'm standing on the edge of me,
i'm standng at the edge of everything I've ever been
And I've been standing at the edge of me, standing at the edge.

love that song. its so beautiful it almost makes me cry. he's got a wonderful voice that guy from switchfoot. so yeah. that's it for tonight all. i'm going to bed early (yeah right) for tomorrow i'm visiting jennie and sleeping in! night all!!

so i'm done. officially. school's over. i don't know how i did. i'm thinking not the best. probably a coupld of C's mixed with the usual B's. if i get an A i'll flip out. like really, flip out. i don't think i will though, there is no classes where it was extremely easy or i did super on all the stuff. had the luau last night. it was fun. i enjoyed it. the pork ass was good too. tee hee ;) so its like 4 and i'm still in allentucky. i should do some laundry or something. but i think i'm going to wait until i go home tomorrow to do it. i dyed (sp?) my hair. its a little darker than expected but i think its actually closer to my origional yeah it looks ok. i kinda like it. i hope my blond highlights fight their way through. i think so, cus they never really dye anyway. so yeah this is boring. i'm going to go and eat leftover chinese. have a safe and fun summer, if you are around and want to hang out call the cell. i'll probably be road tripping a lot when i don't have to work at uhell. so bye friends! i'll try and update this more often (which will happen cus i'll be at work :) )
