Mood: complacentcomplacent
Tunes: Avenue Q Soundtrack
There's a fine, fine line between a lover and a friend.
And there's a fine, fine line between reality and pretend.
And you never know 'til you reach the top if it was worth the uphill climb
There's a fine, fine line between love
and a waste of time.

There's a fine, fine line between a fairy tale and a lie
There's a fine, fine line between "you're wonderful" and "good-bye"
I guess if someone doesn't love you back, it isn't such a crime
but there's a fine, fine line between love
and a waste of your time

And I don't have the time to waste on you anymore!
I don't think that you even know what you're looking for.
For my own sanity I've got to close the door and walk away...

There's a fine, fine line between together and not
And there's a fine, fine line between what you wanted and what you got
You gotta go after the things you want while you're still in you're prime

There's a fine, fine line between love......
and a waste of.... time

Tunes: jack's mannequin ~ "I'm Ready"
coolest line of thought ever:

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.

I need caffeine in my blood stream,
I take caffeine in the blood stream.
I grip the wheel and all at once I realize:

My life has become a boring pop song
And everyone's singing along.

I love Andrew McMahon!! You sing the soundtrack of my life and your music amazes me!

Aug. 29th, 2005 @ 12:31 pm just another manic monday
Yay for no school today!!! We watched the VMA's last night with George in our apartment. We had a momentary brown out and some woman was trapped in the elevator, but all was well. After George and Lara went to the Grove, and I went to bed (i've been fighting a head cold)

This morning we hung out with George. He was sleeping in Lara's bed and we tried to do that feather shaving cream thing but it didn't work.

He just left after bringing up our beer fridge which has a space reserved for it next to the TV.

Lara and I are cleaning up the huge mess we made last night, she's washing dishes and i was doing laundry and she turns to me and says.......

"I think the Grove is my favorite place to puke!"

words of wisdome from Lara

Mood: aggravatedaggravated
I still don't have internet in my apartment, and yesterday lightening struck my house and all the electronics are fried. Meaning no TV, no internet, no computer, nothing! I gave my old hp laptop to my dad to use in the meanwhile. Anyway! I stopped by school on my way back to my apartment to use the internet. I go into the law library thinking since i'm going to be a student TOMORROW they would let me use the internet. It was about 7:15. they told me i can't log on with out a special law id. i tried one of the computers but no luck. so i went to see if ISF was opne. it's not. i went to the richter library. CLOSED! so i get in my car to go home and as i'm driving along sanamero dr. i pass the ol' CoE and think hey they're open all the time! might as well check. go into 202 in BME unlocked, i turn on a computer, log in, but lo and behold, the LAN isn't working. strange. i try another computer. no luck. ok fine, BME is always kinda ify anyways, let's try mechanical. 216 never closes. closed. both 216 and 218. (ps advising is in the old NGJ rooms FYI). Ok, so i think CAE floor has an impact roomn that i've frequented at 3 am and watched movies in!! also locked. so my absolute last ditch effort i think 5th floor lab is always open and only the EEN geeks are ever there. thank good for EEN geeks and their computer lab. mostly for thier lab! so i finally get internet and wouldn't it figure. no mail!

Jul. 29th, 2005 @ 04:01 am confessions of a music junkie
I am a music junkie! it's a horrible, sad existence, and the first step is admitting I have a problem!

I go through bands and CDs faster than most people go through socks and underwear!

This became painfully clear to me tonight, when a friend asked me who my favorite band was and I listed the bands of the week and he not only had no idea who I was talking about, but the list was entirely different than the last time we talked! And so I figured I would make him a CD of the bands I love right now cuz we have similar music tastes. So I'm going though my CD case collection on my bookcase (yes i have a collection of cases, the cd's are in another location), and I realized I have CDs that I have bought and listened to maybe once. and sadly a few I've bought and never even listened to at all!! and I have new CDs waiting to be unwrapped in a bag on my floor!! no more new CDs' for me! at least not until i've memorized all the lyrics on the ones i already have! i have amassed a small fortune in CDs'!

I suppose there are worse things to be addicted to. like expensive purses or shoes, or cigarettes, or drugs. in the grand scheme of addictions I think mines pretty awesome!

so I proudly confess!

I am a indie, underground, punk-rock, emo, piano- rock, music junkie!!!

And I think I just found the newest flavor of the week! Rilo Kiley.

good night all!!!

You scored 100% I to E, 21% N to S, 23% F to T, and 78% J to P!

Your type is known as the Champion type, which is part of the larger
group called idealists. Nothing occurs that does not have some deep and
ethical significance in your eyes. You see life as an exciting drama.

being as genuine as you think you should be. 3% of the population
shares your type.

As a romantic partner, you need to talk about what is going on in your
life. You are a strong supporter for your partner's efforts to grow and
change and be happy. You need to feel that same support from your
partner. Expressive, optimistic, and curious, you are eager to enjoy
new experiences with your partner, whom you wish to be your confidant
and soul mate, as well as play mate. You are uncomfortable sharing
negative emotion, though, and tend to withdraw from confrontation and
process your feelings privately. You feel most loved when your partner
appreciates your creativity, accepts your uniqueness, and sees you as
the compassionate person you are. You need to hear your partner tell
you how much you mean to them and would love if they did thoughtful
spontaneous things to demonstrate it.

Mood: overwhelmed!
Tunes: Fall Out Boy - "Nobody Puts Baby in the Corner"
all done with all my school work!!

I've spent the past day and 1/2 packing and chilling and having a blast. Lara dragged me out to south beach last night to this club called rokbar. and I LOVED it!! it was awesome. hands down my favorite clubbing experience. Her latest fling, Bert, and a bunch of his law school friends got tables there and we just had an awesome time. The music was AWESOME!! with the exception of the fact that they totally ruined a NIN song (fuck you like an animal" by putting "hey shorty it's your birthday" over it. they didn't even play the chorus, they just stole the rift. I was pissed! Lara got fairly drunk and puked several times. once on my shoe, once out the window of the cab on the way home. once over the railing by the lake. Good Times! For once it wasn't me which is shocking. I didn't get buzzed even. I drank like 2 weak drinks and then I was just drinking the cranberry juice. I had so much fun!! I danced on top of the couch while hanging on to the lettering on the wall. we have to go back!!

Before that, I spent pretty much the whole day (after 3 or so) with Joe wandering around broward county checking out places for him to live. It was an interesting day. We had a good time though. This sounds horrible, but I'm so happy I don't go to Nova or FAU or BCC. I might have to shoot myself if I did!

Well I have to get back to packing! :(

May. 9th, 2005 @ 12:43 am Where have all the Architecture Students Gone?
Mood: whistful
Tunes: Fall Out Boy ~ "Nobody Puts Baby in the Corner"
My room in the back of Eaton overlooks the architecture studio. Through out the semester I have been blinded all night long by the florescent lights shining into my window. My roommate walks around naked with all the blinds open and they never notice because they are far to busy and preoccupied with their architecture stuff (their loss!) to notice nakedness. And we all on this side of the building desperately wish some night (or day even) we will happen to glance out the window and see 2 students going at it on top of a table while t-squares and inkwells fall all about. But that never happens (despite the plea from the facebook group). They are my constant companions. Day and night they labor endlessly over whatever it is architecture students labor over. They see the inside of my room more than I do (at least they would is they ever looked up and out the window). Dependable as the energizer bunny is the presence of my architecture neighbors. But over the past week or so, I've noticed less and less lights on in the studio, and more empty rooms. Even now as I look out my window, there are no architecture students, and only about 1/3 of their obnoxious blinding lights have been left on. Where have they gone? do they not suffer through finals as the rest of us common students? I have heard stories from an architecture major about how they have no exams only asinine projects like making houses from balsa wood and coloring on wax paper. and as a result by the time exams are here and the rest of us scurry about frantically studying, they are done and on their way home. They leave in a mass exodus as if the black death has descended upon the building. Good bye dear architectural neighbors. I shall miss you! (and I still think you should have random sex in the studio!)

Finals Judgment
It's Final Exam Week here at Notre Dame, and you know what that means! Yep, procrastinating by writing in a blog instead of studying! However, my laziness proves to be your blessing, bloggers and bloggettes, as I unveil before you today, The Official Compendium of Final Exam Week Personas! That's right, we know that finals week can do some pretty crazy stuff to the people around you. Friends becomes enemies, lovers drift apart, your roommate starts staring at you while you sleep, all sorts of wacky stuff. As such, I've decided to compile a listing of all the personality types that develop during finals week. Here we gooooooooo . . . . . .

- The Dr. Jekyll - Finally putting my English major to some practical use, my witty usage of this popular English Gothic novel describes that person you know who just undergoes a tragic mutation whenever those big tests come rolling around. Before finals, he was clean-cut, wore nice khaki shorts and polo shirts while holding a soccer ball and posing for university pamphlets. Once finals appear, he undergoes a horrifying transformation the likes of which only the Jackson family have seen. He stops showering, he doesn't shave anymore, and his eyes turn bloodshot. If the Queen of England invited him to a Royal Cotillion, he'd think it'd be entirely proper to show up in the medical hazard sweat pants and accompanying flip-flops he's been sporting for the past week and a half. Those sweats that have organically fused themselves to his legs have begun to develop their own primitive civilizations, and soon hope to develop the wheel so they can traverse the mountainous landscape of his crotch. The Dr. Jekyll will shuffle into your exam room the day of the final, and you'll wonder to yourself when the university decided to admit hobos. Probably an attempt to increase diversity, I'm sure.

- The Academic Knievel - If study habits could develop multiple broken bones and severe concussions, this would be the man to provide them. For the first half of finals week, the Academic Knievel is a fun-loving guy, always ready to hang out, toss around the pigskin, or thrillingly clip his own toenails. Anything to avoid the drudgery of actually studying for his finals. "But Pete," you say with admiration/lust in your eyes, "How can the Academic Knievel do well on his exams if he's always slacking off?" Well, simple-minded reader, as the name suggests, this man is a didactic daredevil of the highest dimensions. It may appear that this man is enjoying a rousing game of Crazy Eights, or slugging down a quality ale with not a care in the world, but deep within this heroic man's cerebellum lies a part of the brain dubbed the Procrastinex Majorus.
The Procrastinex Majorus may not be found in the brains of many physicians or lawyers, but is found in abundance in the craniums of Liberal Arts majors across the country, as well as several notable Efficient Food Distribution Specialists. This area of the brain spends 90% of the year in a dormant state, but come finals week, it makes up for it by working around the clock. This chunk of wrinkly goo exclusively functions to determine how much time remains before an exam, so said procrastinator knows exactly when to kick it into high-gear. You may see a man who has done zero studying for an exam the next day as Failing Man Walking, but to the Academic Knievel, he sees it as upwards of 18 hours straight he can study. Plenty of time!
That's right, the Academic Knievel puts his own physical, emotional, and mental health on the line when it comes to studying. He relentlessly forces information into his head over a 12-36 hour period while forgoing food, sleep, and sexual intimacy to ensure that he can pass his final. For a hell bent day or two, he crams enough to make Takeru Kobayashi, World Hot Dog Eating Champion, seem like an amateur. Just as Evel patriotically hurls himself over 26 flaming school buses, the Academic Knievel dives headlong into his textbook for an ungodly period of time, all in the name of procrastination. Godspeed, Academic Knievel, Godspeed.

- The Sasquatch - Often believed to purely be a tall tale told to naive freshmen by condescending seniors, the Sasquatch haunts the library hallways during finals week. What once was your roommate or life partner, this student becomes a phantom, a mirage roaming amongst the shelves of books. Rarely seen, and even more rarely made out with, the Sasquatch disappears into the library for the week-long period of final exams. Nobody knows where he goes, only catching glimpses of his immense backpack as he bounds through the misty halls of the upper floors. Rumor has it that his only form of sustenance is the unsuspecting American Studies major who accidentally stumbled into the library while searching for the nearest bar. Confused and lost, the American Studies major panics when confronted with these massive books, the likes of which he's never seen, and then the Sasquatch strikes! While the screams of the procrastinating prey are lost amongst the sea of iPods, the Sasquatch rips flesh from the bone until satisfied, at which point he returns to the shelves, blood dripping from his chin, textbooks under his arm. Only when finals come to a close does the Sasquatch emerge from his literature lair, blending into the celebrating masses unseen.

- The Pilgrim - Similar to the Sasquatch, the Pilgrim lives his life inside the library during finals week, but in a much more prominent position. Staking his claims to the coveted table next to the electrical outlet, the Pilgrim proudly plants his flag and claims that land for Studying. When not preparing for exams, the Pilgrim can be seen at his table, tending to his golden crops of vending machine candy bars, or taking drink from the bubbling well of Mountain Dew. As the week progresses, the Pilgrim may find his community growing, as his friends and colleagues join him to create a bountiful and prosperous new land. Sleeping on dictionaries and bathing in library toilets makes for a harsh livelihood, and some do not survive in this new land. However, with God at his side, the Pilgrim stays the course, knowing that one day he will know the sweet taste of Freedom.

- The Patron Saint of Studying- This student is a chameleon of sorts. Often appearing to fulfill the role of the Sasquatch or the Pilgrim, the Patron Saint of Studying actually spends the majority of his time not studying, but complaining about how much he has been studying. Droning on the anyone who will listen, the Patron Saint of Studying gladly throws himself upon the Cross of "My Professor is Insane!", and then begins to throw Stones of "I Swear, If I Look At This Again I'll Puke" at himself. Once finished, he gladly burns himself at the Stake of "I Can't Wait For This Week To Be Over! It's Soooo Hard, God!" However, do be aware, because after taking an exam, the Patron Saint of Studying will soon adopt the role of the Martyr of Exams. Proclaiming doomsday prophecies such as "There's no way anyone could've done well on that! The professor is such a jerk! I'm so screwed, I'm gonna fail out! WHHYYYY MEEEEE??" Do not worry, my children, for the Martyr of Exams is a false prophet, because everyone knows that despite his bellyaching, he will probably set the curve. Jerk.

And finally . . .

- The Rip Van Winkle - Nobody is sure what this guy's deal is, but they do know that he spends all of his time at the library sleeping. Drooling all over his Physics textbook, people look at the Rip Van Winkle with a combination of pity, amusement, and envy. And deep down, we all wonder if he plans on waking up to go home, or simply sleep out the summer and wake up fresh for next semester.

So there you have it everybody, and now I've gotta actually get back to studying. But have a great Finals Week everyone, and be sure to look out for the Sasquatch.
