I've seriously been through so many emotions today. I spent most of the night avoiding the task of putting my life into boxes. I did it though. I'm here and it's amazing. It was so hard last night to say goodbye to my best friends. We literally stood around in my kitchen awkwardly because none of us wanted to say goodbye. There were a few tears and there were a lot of tears after they left.

I stayed up until about 3AM thinking about my life and how many changes I am going to go through. I was fucking scared. I'm still fucking scared. I feel so much better now though.

My dorm is literally on Thayer Street. To get to Morriss Hall you have to go to the top of Thayer and go down and take a right into the parking lot when you see the CVS. Moving in was easy, I didn't have that many boxes but that's because I'm so close to home. We moved in and my dad assembled my lamp and for some reason, I'm missing a bulb. I asked my mom for five lightbulbs and she goes, "Well I know you said five, but for some reason I counted, 'one-two-three-four' and I thought that was enough." My lamp is fucking awesome.

We went to Johnny Rocket's for lunch. The server was terrible and got my order wrong and completely forgot about us. I still tipped her 20% though. Since my dad had to get home and get changed for work, we said goodbye at the restaurant and let me pay the bill with the credit card. I felt like an idiot because tears were just falling and I was sitting by myself in an empty booth waiting for the crappy server to bring me my check.

I walked around Thayer for a bit and then went back to my dorm to unpack. It hit me then and I cried a lot. I mean a real fucking lot. My mom called and said I forgot my shampoo and other toiletries, I figured my sister would drop them off when she got home from work but my dad came instead on his way to work (my dorm is on his way to work!) and brought me that and a television because he was afraid I'd get lonely because my roommate doesn't get here til the 31st and I'm here for a pre-orientation program so no one is really here yet. Official move-in days are September 1st and 2nd.

I kinda hung around my room until 5:00 because that was when the dinner was starting and we were having a bunch of guest speakers. I made friends with a few people so we kind of hung around each other all night. People are really surprised that I'm from Rhode Island. It's such a plus. If I really need anything, my dad can just swing by on his way to work or on his way home from work.

It's so awesome. Since the Third World Transition Program is fabulous, we all just go around introducing ourselves to each other. Like, legit, just walking up to each other and saying, "Hi! My name is _____. What's yours?" I made sure to introduce myself to boys who I thought were cute. I feel like I'm in my element because I'm already so friendly. I think tomorrow I"m going to sit with a group of people that I've never met before for breakfast.

The MPC leaders are so great. It's like this one giant pep rally all the time and you know I'm all about being loud and singing and generally being a goofball.

It's really starting to feel like home.

For some reason I woke up in a bad mood. I don't feel like this day will get any better anytime soon.


Today is my birthday and I graduate today.
Life couldn't be better.

I'm starting to feel really professional. I'm in charge of getting store sponsors for our annual fashion show. Usually the fashion show is crap but this year we've got amazing people in charge and we're combining it with the announcement of senior superlatives. It's going to be a red carpet/Oscars night.

So I've been calling district managers, general mangers, talking to marketing CEOs about sponsoring our school's fashion show. Hi, I'm seventeen years old. Even other people were commenting on how different I am on the phone.

"Normally you're like, 'La la. I'm Anita!!' and then you're like, 'Hello. I am in charge of everything.'"

It's crazy. So far we've got David's Bridal, Caché, Nautica, and Polo. I'm not finished yet! I have to finalize a list of stores by the middle of this week so we can get an estimate for models. THEN, that means I can do a write up for MAC so we can see if we can get them to do the models' makeup for free. Hiring freelance artists might not be in our budget.

Since we're not having a DJ this time I'm gonna have to make a compilation of music. I'm looking for mostly techno remixes of popular songs. Anyone have any ideas?

There's so much for me to do this week. I wish we could get NBC 10 to sponsor or something haha. It's a little too late to look into that but I might as well try, I'm not sure.

I'm afraid I won't come through. I've delegated some tasks to other people and I kind of know that they won't come through for me. Fuck it all. I'm not sure I want to grow up yet.

Well, sometimes you've got to put on your two sizes too small ice skates and go ice skating with your dog in your backyard.

FYI: I don't have a lake or a pond in my backyard, just two inches of ice all over.
I love this lady. She came into Davenport's and blurted out, "God, you're really pretty."
LOVE HER. She is my all-time favorite person ever. She really takes the cake. :)

I want to dance like Stephanie Chunmoo. I gotta stop eating cookies.

Endless cycle of school and etc. Some people's perceptions of reality are severely twisted.
I could be biased, I don't know.

I, while wearing a short Hawaiian sun dress plus leggings and sunglasses on top of my head in 10 degree weather, shook hands with Governor Carcieri. Plus there are photos...somewhere. They didn't make the paper though. :( I was reppin' national honor society, yo!

Re: my wearing sunglasses indoors on a cloudy day
"It's not even sunny in here!"
"EXCUSE me. My future's so bright I gotta wear shades."


"How would you feel if someone in a trench coat came and shot you in the mall?"

This entry doesn't make any sense. When do I ever though?

I think my heart's trying to say something but I'm not sure I want to hear it.

Check it out now...
