i don't think there can

i don't think there can be anything worse than nausea, a migraine and insomnia combined.... except maybe those three things the night before the last day of classes. blech.

oh well... looks like i'll finish the cider house rules tonight after all.

i look like shirley temple

i look like shirley temple right now. since prom is in two days (ack) i figured i should start thinking about what to do with my hair, and since it's a lot shorter than it used to be, i decided that i needed to practice. so i rolled my hair in sponge rollers last night, and... well... wow. i may have to stick my head in a bucket of water before i leave the house if my hair doesn't relax a little.

today was a great day...

today was a great day... long, but great. outlet shopping with samara and jenny was a fantastic success - they were having a memorial day 50% off sale!! we all got something for prom... for those of you who knew me and my friends back in the day, it's basically deanna's senior prom dress in navy instead of red. for those of you who didn't know me... well, there will be pictures. i was really surprised at what an easy drive it was up to the city... maybe now i'll go more often. :-)

after shopping we headed to a memorial day bbq at jean, erik and l.b.'s house... it was a blast! i gave ariel my little digital and she took a whole bunch of photos... it's always so much more fun that way because when i get home and upload them it's a total surprise.

it's too bad i have to go back to school tomorrow.

well, i didn't get to

well, i didn't get to go out last night, but i did get to go out tonight, so i feel better. it was a different kind of night, not stuff i usually do. first i headed to a spy party where i knew only 4 people so it was kinda weird. then brendon wanted to go to the red room, where i had never been before. it was fun, i spent most of the time bitching with andy about our lame love lives. then we walked to the other end of pacific for last call at (of all places) pizza my heart. mmm. pinapple pizza.

on the way home i confided in meghan... i had to sit in my car for 15 minutes to psych myself up before i went into the party. i really am shy... once i get to know people i'm as crazy as the rest of the theater majors, but around a bunch of strangers? i'm a whimp.

and i had 2 messages when i got home. i feel popular.

well, i thought i was

well, i thought i was going out tonight. i never heard anymore about it, so i figured it was safe to eat the rest of my funyuns. my mom thinks they're nasty, but i tend to disagree. mmmm, good. they make your breath smell awful, though.... what do you want to bet maria calls me with plans for tonight as soon as i finish them??

i love hanging out in

i love hanging out in the ta lab before a show. it only takes us ten minutes to set up for the show so it gives us a lot of time to kill. i'd much rather be at home... but hey, whatever.

this year has gone by

this year has gone by so fast, and i feel like i didn't even realize it until today. graduation is in 2 and a half weeks, and even though i'll be back in the fall for one more quarter, i'm dreading it because most of the people that i finally got to know in the past six months will be gone, and i'm not looking forward to that at all.

ok, today my day went

ok, today my day went from really bad to really good really fast. i went from stressing over an unfinished paper and possible no pass in a class i kinda need, and freaking out about certain events that happened with a certain person this weekend (i'm not going to discuss details here because, well, who knows who looks at my page? if you're really that curious, drop me a line.)

less than 2 hours later, i had an extention on my paper, and a 'date' with samara to work on prom invites (which turned out fabulous, btw). the situation with the certain person is still uncertain, but i'm not freaking out any more.

it's amazing how fast things can take a total 180.

on an unrelated note, today my daily hits nearly doubled for no apprent reason. hm.

wreck. i am a *w

wreck. i am a *w r e c k* . why can't school be over already??

thank god for saturn cafe! that little late night gab fest and break from paper writing was just what i needed.

i haaaaaaaaaate writing papers.

i think i've watched the last three minutes of last night's x-files about 20 times, and i'm still giddy!!

hooray! after what they alluded

hooray! after what they alluded to in tonight's season finale (i think it was the first ever that wasn't a cliffhanger of the traditional sort) mulder had better be in a few episodes! *dramabug grins uncontrollably*

i'm finally winding down from

i'm finally winding down from todays show and designer shoot. i'm beat. this has been a long weekend, and i'm physically, mentally, and emotionally drained... i really hope i can stay awake long enough to see the end of the x-files season finale... better set up a tape.

as i was driving gabe home, i realized that i was not the only thing running on empty - my car needed gas. as i headed towards the gas station, i could see a huge fog bank blowing in, and since the sun was setting, everything had this wonderful hazy glow. it's something i've only seen here, and it's amazingly beautiful. i feel so lucky to be here.

last night was yet *another*

last night was yet *another* party, and this was great because my friend autumn is visitng from napa, and everyone was very happy to see her! for the second night in a row i was there until 4 am, and i must say it was worth it! it's strange, because i felt like i was acting very out of character, but then again, so was everyone else. so much random stuff went down and it was all so strange, i'm having a hard time believing it all really happened.

oooh oooh oooh, i just heard the new n'sync single on the radio!!!!!!!!!! thank god for napster... i hate hearing a song on the radio and not being able to hear it again right away. ;-)

i... am... so... lame... for

i... am... so... lame... for staying out this late and i know i'm going to hate myself tomorrow, but damn tonight was a good time. i love theater arts parties. they are worth every minute of lost sleep... but since there is another one tomorrow night i think i'd better pencil a nap into my schedule.

38 minutes until spring dance

38 minutes until spring dance opens! woo-hoo!

i love being on clear-com...

i love being on clear-com... had i known it was that fun i would have been getting my ta50 hours as a board op and not as run crew! the only down side - the headsets are so tight, it feels like your brain is being squeezed out of your ears.

i am so mad -

i am so mad - i haven't missed an episode of ed since november, and because i didn't shut my vcr off before i left the house yesterday, it didn't tape. grrrrr.

i didn't think i would

i didn't think i would be able to go to the the fair this year, but i think i'm going to take a mini-trip tonight - i need my fried rice fix for the year!

well, i got my trey

well, i got my trey tickets yesterday!! i'm so excited! i really love the greek theater... i saw tracy chapman there last summer and it was amazing.

well, at least tech isn't

well, at least tech isn't nearly as boring as last time... i'm the assistant stage manager but since they never found someone to be the media op, i'm doing that. it's kinda cool... the media stuff is really neat, and i get to be on com, and that's really fun! i just hope we get done at a decent hour tonight so i can get some sleep.

my show starts tech today,

my show starts tech today, and i've been at rehearsals every night for weeks, plus i had a midterm last week, so that explains my lack of blogging. yesterday it all caught up to me and i was just so exhausted that i cancelled all my plans and hung around my house all night. seriously, after rehearsal, i was so tired that i wanted to go home and sleep for days, but i forced myself to go pick up my photos from my santa barbara trip and go to the store so i could have something to eat at tech today.

ugh. off to be a slave to the theater. ;-)

i remember going through the

i remember going through the american girls catalog - way back when they only had 3 dolls. i always wanted a molly doll, but that never happened. catalogs still come to my parents' house, and i was flipping through one today, and they came up with the coolest thing! i want one.

today was *hot*. like gross,

today was *hot*. like gross, all you want to do is lay around *hot*. and i've got to say, the people in california are so DUMB - just because it's hot does not mean there's no more energy crisis! unless you are old, or have little kids, your air conditioner SHOULD NOT BE ON! i don't care if you have the $$ to shell out for crazy energy bills, your actions are affecting everyone in the state. no one likes blackouts, so open your windows in the morning when it's cool, keep your lights out, and spend the money you would have spent on power on a new tank top (or 20).

long day yesterday. i went

long day yesterday. i went to my friend cindy's wedding, which was nice. i ran into some people i havent seen since high school... it was very weird. cindy looked great... and very happy. i got a photo with her to add to my wedding book, so i'm glad. i always feel kinda bad asking, because weddings are so crazy, and i'm sure that after a while, the bride gets sick of having her photot taken, but i'm always glad after the weddings when i get my film developed.

after that, i drove to west valley and caught the end of a play there.. i was meeting up with some friends from ucsc. after that, a few of us headed over to david's house in los gatos. me and samara were there until 2:30 am... and then david and samara headed back to santa cruz. i was very happy that i only had to drive across town and not all the way back to sc.

tonight was GREAT! me and

tonight was GREAT! me and samara (kisskiss!) had tickets for the queer fashion show up at porter. i met her in line, where we were joined by nora, david and maura. the show was fabulous... i'd try to describe it but it's one of those things that needs to be seen. ;-)

after the show we headed downtown to get some food. this random guy we had met at the fashion show was there, and he used a really bad pickup line on samara, who i must say was very gracious. after mild confusion, we got a table. we were loud and obnoxious (lots of talk about boobs, for some reason) so it was good thing the place was almost empty. we had the coolest waitress ever. when we were done, we decide to go to surf bowl, and headed out to the car. in the parking lot, we saw a car with the back door open, and four feet sticking out of it... there were people actually *doing it* in this car. it was pretty funny.
when we got down to the beach, surf bowl was closed, so we decided to go hot tubbung, but that didn't work out either, so samara, david and i headed down to the beach.

now, santa cruz doen't have a great night life, but we do have some great beaches. the three of us walked down a path and ended up on the cliff between the boardwalk and harbor. it was an amazing veiw, and we hung out there for a while... at this point it was 1 am! we ventured down to the edge and took a few photos... well, david and samara sat down there for a while, but since i'm such a chicken, i mostly stayed close to the fence (cliffs and nighttime and oceans don't really mix for me!). it was amazing... quiet, tranquil and absolutely gorgeous.

i was out much too late, but every moment of tonight was worth it.

it's always a nice surprise

it's always a nice surprise when you check your referral logs and find you've been linked by someone new (and a complete stranger at that!!).

for some reason i'm a lot more productive when i do homework in the t.a. lab. this is not a good discovery... simply because i spend too much time here as it is and now i feel like i should drag my homework up here as well. ugh.

i hate rehearsal because right

i hate rehearsal because right now it's just hours of doing *nothing*, but i love rehearsal because it's nice to hang around with everyone and it gives me a chance to knit and read and such. it's frustrating though, because i'm trying to learn how to do css and i wish i had a few hours to just learn it all at once.
