1:15 pm - Job
Wow...seven months since my last journal entry! I really don't find my life that interesting so I suppose that's why I really don't post and I find it more enjoyable to read about other people's lives.
I am sure that some of you know that I've wanted to become a Flight Attendant for awhile. Well I started off this semester going to junior college and applying for different airline jobs hoping to get something by the time I would graduate in December. It just so happened that a few weeks ago I picked up the newspaper and there in the classifieds was an airline seeking flight attendants and they had an interview sesion the next day! Yah for me!!!! Anyway I went to the session and out of about 70 people I was chosen in a small group of about 15 to stay after. They called me a week or so later and told me I had been accepted... woohooo! Yup so I dropped all my classes (which is the weirdest feeling) and I put in my two weeks notice to my current job.
Training starts October 20th which is so exciting! One week here and then they fly me to New York for another two weeks. They sent me this binder with all this flight information I have to memorize. In it they have all these guidelines and whatnot... oh my gosh they're stricter than the private school I went to! I figure it's well worth it though because the airline is international and I get to fly to all these cool places like Jamaica,London, Italy, Bahama's, Caribbean.
Oh... I also got around to getting myself a cell phone so now I can join the rest of the world and drive crazily on the road while talking.

9:54 am - Busy
I really don't feel horrible for not updating. My excuse is I've been busy and maybe a little lazy, but for those who find my life soooo interesting I suppose I should be nice and fill you in.
One of my friends that I've known for about a year is a Marine and a couple months ago got deployed. He's currently going over to the middle east by ship and I guess is going to try to disarm all the evil people. He's called me a couple times from the ship and we've been writing letters back and forth. I was shocked to find that I had gotten two letters from him on my birthday... I call that great timing and maybe some sort of scandal with the post office!
Recently my close friend Tim came out to visit Loreanne and I! He's coming back even though I didn't take him to the beach. I simply bribed him with dinner, dancing, and my great looks and now he's hooked! We had a lot of fun though and I am pretty sure he enjoyed himself. Loreanne and him came with my family and I to San Francisco to celebrate my sister getting a 4.0 on her report card.
We went over on bart and went to the Rain Forest Cafe where we got to hear wonderful jungle sounds, see and hear wonderful thunder and lightening, and sit under a small night sky with shooting stars.
We shopped around Ghiradelli Square and tried on crazy hats and watched the crazy people! After that we walked back to pick up the muni and we watched those silver men on the streets who try to look robotic, and even got to see a chase. Some guy was running from a cop, but it was like watching it in slow motion. I could have easily run up to the cop and jogged with him.
After that exciting little adventure we came upon the famous "bush man". For those who aren't familiar with the "bush man" I shall enlighten you. The "bush man" is a homeless guy in san francisco who goes around the area sitting with branches and scaring people. There was a big crowd watching this guy across the street. People who are on their cell phones or walking with friends are usually oblivious to a lot of things. This guy is smart... I wish I had thought of the idea of sitting with a bush and scaring people for money.
After being entertained we ended up walking all the way back to Embarcadero where we took bart back home. We changed and I took Tim and Loreanne out for dinner for Tim's (way belated) birthday. We ended up going to the Tonga Room in San Francisco at the Fairmont Hotel! It's a fun atmosphere if you like cheesy music, dancing and chinese food. I had a lot of fun though. We danced and even got to see a guy who wore sponge bob square pants pj's to dinner. We first saw him in the elevator when we were going down and then he ended up sitting right across from our table. He was quite interesting. I've never seen a grown man wear pajama's to a nice restaurant, but he really didn't seem to mind so whatever!
Oh wow... I forgot the most important part to Tim's visit. It was weird because Tim flew in on Friday and I was going to pick him up later because I had a field trip. The time he flew in and my field trip conflicted so I couldn't pick him up. My field trip ended early so my friend and I were walking back to my car and I look over and there's Tim... talk about weird! His hotel was in the opposite direction we were walking and we found out later that his hotel was a lot farther down the street so luckily we bumped into each other!
Later that night Loreanne, Tim and I decided to go to Berkley. Loreanne and I had talked about getting ourselves pierced again but our schedules always seemed to be conflicting. We go to Berkley and I opted to mutilate myself first. I was so nervous because I really thought it was going to be more painful than it really was. I'll save you all the wonderful gruesome details and simply tell you that I got my industrial pierced. For those of you who don't know piercing vocab your industrial piercing is getting the top of your cartilage pierced and a little bit below that pierced with a bar connecting the piercing.
Loreanne's piercing seemed to have hurt a lot more than mine did. After the guy pierced her he left the curved needle looking thing just sitting in her ear... very attractive! I'll let Loreanne post what she got pierced and maybe give a better description of what happened.
I suppose it will probably be another 3 months before I post again!

12:37 pm - Crappy Day!!!!
Don't you just love it when there's a guy you're kinda interested in and you make plans to go out. The first excuse is "well my car broke down and I have homework to catch up on." Then he tells you later on that he's very attracted to you and there could possibly be something more. Soooo you get pretty excited and you make plans to go out another time. This time he doesn't call, doesn't e-mail.
I think I am having a pity party for one. Oh well... you think that I would have learned by now to make wise decisions regarding guys, but it seems I constantly am making the same mistakes. It could just be be that I am wearing an invisible sign that says "detour".

10:30 am
Ok I know it's been awhile since I've updated, but I have to admit I am pretty lazy. Reading about other people's lives is so much more interesting than talking about my own.
So a recent update for those I don't get a chance to talk to: I finally made a decision and I decided I am NOT going to go to Virgina for sure. Boy that was a load lifted off of my shoulders. Right now my choices are UC Santa Cruz or San Diego State. Kenny keeps insisting that the people down in San Diego are pricks and they're deprived or something because they don't use the word "hella". If anyone has some suggestions they would be most appreciated. :)
I was so happy that I got a chance to spend some time with my mom. We went to Berkley on Saturday and I took her to Telegraph Ave. since she's NEVER been there before. :) I felt that she was deprived and she needed to be enlightened by all the interesting people that are there ie: those that are homeless, high, or have a different sexual preference. I love it... just because there's such a diversity and they have a lot of cool little shops that have cute clothes and whatnot. Then after I exposed my mom to bongs, and drugs (hehe not really), but yeah we went out to dessert to Claim Jumpers. There's this one guy I keep seeing every time I go and I feel ridiculous. Over the summer I went there with Sarah, Loreanne, and Kenny and our waiter happened to be a hottie so I flirted with him or whatnot and at the end of our meal they all dared me to leave my phone number on the back of the little receipt. I of course left my phone number and he never called, but the last two times that I've been there I've seen him... it's just one of those weird awkard situations.
Heheh I am almost thinking that I have the worst luck with attracting guys and almost always telling them I am not interested. There's this guy in two of my classes and we got to talking and whatnot. We did a project together for one of classes and after that we'd hang out occasionally. After all that he decides he wants to ask me out on a date and I keep putting it off. I feel terrible, but I don't want to hurt his feelings and I am kinda at a loss for words. Sometimes it's not easy being a girl!!

8:52 am - Hindu Temple
Welllll.... I went to a Hindu Temple for my World Religions Class. Let me tell you it was most exciting!! First of all you had to take off your shoes I think as a sign of respect and then you walk into this amazing temple.
When I first walked in I wasn't sure what to think. It was so entirely different than any other church or sacred place that I had been to. The middle of the temple was open and then around the sides of the temple were smaller shrines or temples that belong to the gods that the Hindus believe in. There was a main temple that belongs to Vishnu and then there are smaller temples that belong to his wives (notice that there are more than one; he must feel pretty special) and other family members.
It was amazing because I actually got to participate in one of the ceremonies. The priest dude had me kind pour smoke over me (its kinda hard to describe) then he poured liquid in my hands to drink from. The liquid kinda looked like a tea color and didn't have much of a taste, but I was told that it was from some sort of flower. After all this there was some chanting and different things like that and I was given a banana at the end. I felt pretty special because I don't think I've ever gone to a church service and come back with a fruit. :) I was sad however because my mom ate the banana and said it was good... oh well I guess I'll have to go back to get a lovely banana to take home with me again.
Ok now I am just going to randomly switch subjects... so last night I went out cause I was just having a crappy day and I needed to get my mind off of things. I went out with this guy that I recently met at school and he's in two of my classes. We went out to eat at this kinda new restaurant around where I live called Chipotle or something like that. If you like spicy mexican food I would highly suggest going there, but other than that it just gave me a gurgly stomach. :) After dinner we went out for a fun game of bowling which my scores were extremly sucky!!! You would think after taking bowling class for 2 semesters I might be semi-good but NO :) Then after an adventerous game of bowling we played some pool which of course I just suck at too, but I was amazed because out of the blue I actually two balls into the same pocket. Heheh lets just say I am quite proud of myself.
Oh yeah and Jamie it is always my pleasure to leave crazy interesting messages on your phone!!! :)

I know I am shocking you all once again by writing in my journal!! Hmmm nothing too exciting has been happening to me. I am trying to make decisions on where I want to go to school. I got accepted to a school in Virgina, but its soooo far away! I just really want to get away and just experience independence. Someone explained it to me perfectly one time. They told me that they've been living in a comfort zone surrounded by friends and family and for once they just wanted to see if they could make it out on their own. I guess thats what I really want.
Besides Virgina I have the option of Santa Cruz which would be a lot closer to home and I could have the lovely company of Kenny and Jamie. I also could consider going down to San Diego which is one of the most perfect places to spend your last college years; Partying!!!! Hehhe not really though.
I am thinking in November I might take a few trips and check out these colleges and see what they have to offer. I have no idea what kind of state Virgina is and what it has to offer, but I do know that theres a beach nearby so thats a definite plus. Then we have San Diego with beautiful people (guys with abs), perfect weather, the beach, and clubs. I am a terrible decision maker so hopefully I'll make a good one. The one real advantage of being in Virgina would be that I could finally milk a cow.... woohoo!!! :)
Oh and of course I could see all those wonderful Amish people. If I became a nun I would sorta fit in.

current mood: awake

8:13 pm
Geeezzz I just wrote this whole long thing and then it got erased. That is so frustrating. Well I guess I am telling this whole thing again.
I am re-modeling my bathroom. I really think it looks cute especially since I am going with the whole Palm Tree motif. I am stenciling Palm Trees so you can really tell that is true artistic talent right there. So we've got palm trees on the walls, a palm tree shower curtain, the little rings that hold the shower curtain are palm trees, towels, soap dish, soap dispenser, are alll palm trees. I really think the only thing I am missing is the hawaiin music. You could feel like you're in a tropical island somewhere except you'd be without a hot cabana boy.
Today in my World Religions Class I felt like I was in Elementary School again. The teacher has us make a colage of things we feel strogly about having to do with our belief system or something along those lines. I wish I was more artistic. The extent of my artistic abilities are stick figures, and coloring in between the lines. I feel pretty special just being able to do that.

3:20 am - Forced!!!
Well I am finally writing in my journal for all you lovely people to read. Not that I think anyones really going to read this, but I am writing in it anyway!! Loreanne you can now talk to me and I am not sorry at all that I didn't write in it before.
Hmm so what to write? Well nothing really ever exciting happens to me, so those who do read this will I think be bored. :)
Yup well the only real interesting thing that I can think of that happened to me was a couple nights ago when I had this guy offer to eat ice cream with me in his boxers. Thats got to be the most interesting that I've ever been offered.
lol oh now that I remeber when I was going to bed last night I was talking to one of my friends online and I said "well my bad is calling my name so I must be off" and he of course said "well I believe my bed is also calling your name". I thought that was a pretty bad pick up line so guys I would highly suggest using it.
Yup so I hope that you are now happy those who really wanted me to write in this crazy thing.
I hope everyone enjoys their day :)
