School: Not Even Close

leave a comment »

So about the whole school thing. I didn’t get into the environmental school that I had originally wanted, I didn;t even get into a school in Manhattan. What I got into was some lame school here in Queens that probably has 100% Asian population going on. My aunt told me I could always travel into the city on the weekends but I want to be there daily dammit! Everything is out of my hands at this point in time so I am just going to prepare for school with a heavy heart. In about two years I’ll be choosing whichever school I feel for and no one can turn me down. Unless, of course, if I don’t get in because my grades suck. But I am pretty confident that they don’t right now so no need to worry.

EDIT: The school is East-West School of International Studies by the way.

This musician on imeem requested as a friend. His name is Jon Schmidt and he is a pianist. Because I had Bach "Air for Strings in G" as a favorite he thought I would be interested in his music. I am listening to it now and all I can say is wow. This guy is amazing.

Enjoy and if you like it friend him on imeem here at http://www.imeem.com/jonschmidt (don’t know why insert link isn’t working)

Older Dudes

leave a comment »

I must have some disease that forces me to go gaga over older men. I have literally never been attracted to someone my age unless they looked and acted way older than they truly were. I’m just begging for a pedo aren’t I? Don’t worry I’m not into that, but I can’t imagine dating most of the guys I have grown up with. I know all men were probably once the same immature and I do love goofy guys. Maybe it’s something about there whole persona and demeanor. Or maybe I’m a strange old woman in a fifteen year old’s body.

Today was basically terrible. I woke up fairly early this morning so I could get ready and take the subway into Manhattan so I could register for HSES. Everything went as planned. My brother and I got into Manhattan ahead of time and stopped at Subway for breakfast. So things were looking fairly well because I love being in the city and the atmosphere felt perfect. Bad timing, my mother called. She said she was out of work and would meet us up at the registration office. Her next question devastated me. She asked "And you have the papers right?". Hell no I didn’t have any papers! I couldn’t believe it. So we had to go home and leave the chance of getting into a school in Manhattan again (I had wonted to go earlier but my mother disagreed with me). I felt like crying the entire way home. I need a hug. I need comfort!

Insane. That is all I can say about yesterday’s sale at Old Navy. It was completely nuts at both of the branches my sister and I traveled to.  Let me explain.

We had started out early because my sister had to say goodbye to one of her friends that was going back to their boarding school (my sister had graduated two years ago). She had invited me to come along. At first we had planned on going really early when the mall first opens. That was a no go we didn’t get there until after one. You should have seen the inside of the stores. The first one, at Jamaica center, had a line wrapped around the store and reaching nearly out of the door, and everyone had about 10 pairs of jeans in their hands ready to buy. We said hell no and went to the store in Green Acres Mall. The exact same problem awaited us there. No point in not looking was what I was thinking since we traveled a long bus ride to reach there anyway.

Sister and I start searching through all the jeans. First off, the place was a mess.. There were jeans thrown in piles on the floor, nothing was in there proper place and the only sizes they had left were 0, 18, and 22. I knew that was going to happen so I was discouraged from the start. Gabrielle found a pair for my younger sister, Rachel, and I went on looking for myself. No such luck. I spent forever looking while my sister slowly crawled through the line. I found a couple of pairs that I found kind of cute but what I really wanted where a pair of stonewashed looking skinny jeans. I looked in parts I thought it would be and parts I thought no one would ever look. Still no skinny jeans. So I went back to look for a pair of regular jeans and there they were. My perfect pair waiting for me on a rack that the saleswoman had started refolding. I was so happy. So any way I’ve been wearing them for the past two days straight and I don’t plan on switching anytime soon. I worked too damn hard looking for these jeans.

Private Rant

leave a comment »

I’m at the library with sister and my session will be ending in less than ten minutes. This is completely ridiculous. i walk ten minutes to get to the damn library and they give me half an hour with an ancient computer that takes a lifetime to load. Who can do all that they need to do in half an hour. I just got to thispage after twenty minutes it’s funny how fast that warning popped up to kick me off though. Anywho i thought I would share my feelings about this situation before I go home to spend the rest of my life on the computer. But first I have to pick up some books.

my blogger code is B1 d- t- k+ s- u– f+ i o++ x- e+ l- c–

I have no idea what it means but the survey asked me about sex and how much i blog and all other nonsense. I guess some people can say that they have safely had some sort of "meeting" with an online blogger but I would never do it. Well maybe it’s because I am young when I’m older I might go out and try to meet other people online…or not. But I could never meet someone online and then arrange to meet them to have that "bit of fun". This maybe nonsense to some but I’m abstinent and having one night stands – or however long it might be – is not very appealing to me. In my mind somewhere I have this romance etched out for myself in rainbow ink. Not finding a perfect boyfriend but someone I will stay in love with for the rest of my life, and I would present my virginity to him and no one else. dreamy isn’t it.
