does someone want to finish cleaning my room for me? i'll give you a peanut butter sandwitch.

i'm sorry for the lack of updates... things got a little funky and then i got back to slo and the network wasnt up.

friends ignored me again. the ultimate ignorance. i got ditched and didnt get to go to the five iron frenzy concert in pomona saturday night. i understand why their plans changed- it made sense for them. but it really dissapointed me. and i dont know if i'll get to see fif again before they break up. :o(

so i wanted to leave immediately for slo, when i found out there would be no concert. ben and i went by steph and sang's on our way up. they pulled the whole "saturday is our day together" thing, but really... when do they get to see me? every three months. i think i am important too. so we got to see them, we just couldnt stay too long. i think the sight of babies with parents around our age kinda scared ben.

so i've been in slo... put together a little bookshelf from ikea (whee!) made a yummy dinner (whee!)
now i just want carolyn to come home, but i cant get ahold of her. where are you, oh roomate??

spring break should be renamed "sarah's friends ignore her" week. i'm so bored. i've read 150 pages in both my special ed textbook and my adolecent literature book. isnt that exciting? i brought bathing suits home, but what was i thinking? no one can go to the beach or have a bonfire like normal. all i do is watch stupid old movies where the women have no voice, and read my books for next quarter. at least i get to see tiffany today.

well i FINALLY got my grades. B in math, A's in history, education, and humanities. grr... B. that means i didnt get an A on the final like i was hoping. oh well, stupid math.

Tuesday, March 25, 2003

i'm getting frustrated! almost 6 on tuesday and none of my grades are posted yet. my brother's have been up since noon...

the three movies i have seen on tcm in the last two days:

that touch of mink (1962)
pillow talk (1959)
my favorite wife (1940)

each one was completely based on sexual innuendo. that touch of mink and pillow talk both had doris day as sexually passive women pursued by playboys. they didnt want sex, the guy did. the last one was basically about bigamy, with a presumed dead wife showing up the day of her husbands new marriage.

i'm not sure what part of these movies i had more of a problem with.

i've noticed a disturbing trend. our parents wait until we are out of the house, and then do much needed remodels. well, much needed when we lived there. but now not so needed.

example: i have taken a shower in our bathroom (kids bathroom) a total of ONE time in the 16 years i have lived here. and it was a really terrible shower, because it never worked right for 16 years. the water like ate your skin with bullets that stang like skanky mexican jellyfish. (no offense to mexico, but warm oceans attract them jellyfishes) But now that my brother and i have moved out, my parents completely re-did the bathrooms. wow! two working showers in the house! too bad they only need one now!

another example: my cousins tim and andy grew up in a tiny-ass bedroom, with bunk beds. now that they are both in college, their parents decided to add a second story to the house. yeah. now that theres only two people living there, hey, lets add on a couple more bedrooms!

i make one amendment. our bathroom is not completely done. there is no sink, no mirror, no medicine cabinet. but there is a shower. but i have to brush my teeth in the kitchen.

do zombies rule?

of corpse they do!

just wanted to let sarah know that i fixed her blog... the advice column is pretty snazzy, no?

Friday, March 21, 2003

i did it! i'm done! and i love you all... ben goes home tonight, and my roomate leaves at 6 am. i'll leave whenever i'm packed and i've sifted through my piles of papers to find my tax info.

somehow, with about 2 and a half hours of sleep and even less time studying, i think i did good on my math final. YAY!!

and my parents sound normal. YAY!!

and i have 4 hours to write the rest of my paper. YAY!! (oh, wait..)

Thursday, March 20, 2003

i love you, ben.

healthy choice is the king of frozen meals. unlike budget gourmet, they have actual recognizable meat. and they're 9 oz instead of 8. oh yes.

Tuesday, March 18, 2003

think i did a good job on my history final. the essay question was one i knew, and the short answers were good ones too. yay! now i have to worry about my educ. final in 9 hours. :oP i thought it was going to be a breeze, but i just looked at the study guide and um... i dont think we did ANY of this in class. yeah, my professor was cool, but i didnt learn much.

they just canceled my section of education class and opened a new one. i am now going tuesday 5-9pm instead of thursdays. how many times can they do this? they closed my section of english then opened a new one, and they just plain canceled my science class. do they really think that they can do shiznat like this and expect people to graduate "in a timely manner?"

accomplishment of the day: found the garage down the street where the band practices. every freaking day. the band has like one song, although it is a pretty good song, i'm getting a little tired of it.

"hello? hi. i'm trying to study... its finals week... can you please not be so loud?"

blank stares

and i recognize the guitar player. and the singer was wearing an old saves the day shirt. dammit.

dont you guys have finals too?

happy finals week

Monday, March 17, 2003

hi, ben here again. i know, another shameless plug of my site, but how else will i get readership.

hey, stinkoman. everybody says you're the coolest, and i want to be the coolest too.

nah, man, you can't. you're just a kid.

(for all the tecknogeeks out there, i know i wasn't 100 % accurate with that... so yeah. show me what you got)

ok, i'm retarded. i just stayed up till 3am on finals week, MESSING AROUND on the computer. and like.... stupid humanities final at 4 pm. oh well, attendance is worth more than the final anyways

i wrote a big post but blogger ate it. here's the jist: i miss having close girl friends. carolyn is the only one i've got here, and shes more just a roomate cause of how much homework she does. i look forward to going home, but when i do, everything's different. husbands, children, boyfriends, work... i look at pictures of us messing around back in high school, and know that they will never again be so carefree and fun. i miss stephanie, but i especially miss the stephanie before she was a mommy and a wife. i feel so out of sync with her these days.

i think there are craneflies breeding in our apartment


arg! i'm a pirate!

i'm working on this assignment for education class. my top ten k-3rd grade books and how i would teach them in the classroom. i really dont want to teach those grades. i like older kids SO much better. i mean... in a teaching setting. i like younger kids, as long as i'm not trying to teach them something. they'd rather eat their pencils than learn sometimes.

shut up, kid

the weather has been psycho-crazy lately. cant decide whether to rain or shine!! i wore like nothing two days ago, then bundled up, and then nothing today. and now it be raining on my tin balcony.

i like my apartment. it is cozy and pretty and the laundry room is 30 feet away and i want to live here until i am 47.5 years old.

or maybe not.

Thursday, March 13, 2003

i'm pissed cause i accidentally left my pencil in history class tonight. on the ledge of the chalkboard right by my desk. and the ironic thing is that i think this is where i found it a month or so ago. i shouldnt be upset about this, but I WANT "MY" PENCIL BACK

i somehow got a 98% on the history paper i wrote in a day! YAY!!!! of course, i was researching way before that. now, i have a paper due on monday about of love and other demons by gabriel garcia marquez. maybe i'll copy matt, who is cool, and had a listy thing goin' on of things to be done. darn classes, why do they have to cramp my collegiate lifestyle?

well thats kinda kinky...

i just ducked out early from teaching at the elementary school. my lesson went ok, but this one little girl was being a butt-head. of course i didnt tell her that.

Sunday, March 09, 2003

it's march again. unbelievable.

according to my parents, i can make my own decisions once i am 21. (obviously, my young age of 20 years, 5 months and 8 days negates me from this burden. thank you, mom and dad!)

also, if ben so much as looks at me wrong, my dad will be on his doorstep in 4 hours.

doesnt my life r0x0r?

i got the paper done. oh so last minute. we're talking, finished the conclusion 5 minutes before class

2 hours

why did i mess around for an hour? there is no excuse. well, i'm at 8 pages, but i am like half done with my info. shrug. time to cross things out in my notes i guess. carolyn is running around yelling "crappy bunghole papAr"

6 hours

on the 5th page, plus i am back up to 12 units. thank you english department! (the stupid physics dept. canceled one of my classes and i had to find a new one) this schedule is better anyways. i tell you all bout it latar. back to paper

8 hours

i am on my 4th page. now, if i was going for the minimum number of pages, i'm almost there. the problem is, i'm only on page 2 of 10 as far as my notes go. uh oh! i had no idea, but it looks like i have the amount of research that would serve me well for a 15 page paper, not a 5-10 page one.

17 hours

sleep time will be soon. i have two pages done, which is rather pathetic. i just... i dont know. i really wasnt planning on procrastinating like this. if it hadnt been for all those education assignments i had to do last night, i'd probably be close to done by now. arrrg. does someone want to write for me? mmm, witches and children

Wednesday, March 05, 2003

21 hours

i think i'm basically done with research. gotta start writing

stupiiid blog thing doesnt want to let me post!

30 hours until my paper is due

i still havent even gone through all my research. i think i am going to do not so good on this. darnit. poop. rats.

Monday, March 03, 2003
