IPad 2 Release Today!

I came to New York for spring break and I brought along my roommate Fionna. We came last Saturday via Chinese bus from Richmond to Chinatown. Six and a half hour drive people! Once we got into the city I found out that our ride into queens (aka my aunt) was no where near to picking us up so we had to take all of our luggage and my bunny rabbit in her carrier onto the subway. Poor Sephora was already scared senseless and then she had to deal with that loud subway. What made it worse was the F train being out of service so we had to go down into brooklyn just to get onto the correct train. It was too much in one day and with three bags a piece. When my aunt got us from the subway station we decided to eat out for the night but that took forever to decide on of course and my brother had to be picked up from home so he could join in. Thai was the meal of the night in the end. It was delicious. It was this restaurant a bit into Long Island down Merrick Road. All of this description means I forgot the name.

Fionna and I ended up spending the whole of Sunday napping and tv watching in my living room. It’s been such a long time since I sat down and watched television, there’s a tv in my dorm room now and I still don’t watch it. I’m so busy with work all the time I can’t enjoy entertainment. Still find the time for fanfics though. Fionna left Monday for Boston. I actually popped that “do you want to go New York with me tomorrow” question the day before we left. Fionna wasn’t planning on going anywhere for spring break but this gave her something to do and a cheap alternative from getting a flight home. She really surprised her parents, literally, she arrived in Boston called her dad and was like “can I get a ride home?” Her mom was even funnier she yelled at her and then hugged her. So Kodak.

With Fionna gone my sister and aunt at either work or school and my brother at a DECA competition I was going to be alone all day everyday until Thursday. My sister had the audacity to invite me to her boring school where there are no couches or anywhere comfortable to sit I was so tired that day and sleeping actually hurt. Big mistake.

After that it got better. Fionna came back bright and early Thursday and we went out to Koreatown to meet friends from our university. We went to a traditional like Korean restaurant called Han Bat on 35th between 5th and 6th. There was this giant shrimp in my dish, whose name I can’t even duplicate at the moment. It was pretty good though. My sister and her friend Matt, who’s in a jazz band that I’ve gone to seen, came to have dinner also. Our group left the restaurant and went to a hookah bar down on Astor place. First hookah experience. It was amazingly fun. I want to do it again as soon as possible. Afterwards we were sort of forced to split up because our friends got through to the 6 train and we didn’t make it haha. Very fun night though. My aunt was pissed because we were out until 3.

Which brings me today. For the last 3 or 4 days I’ve been going on the apple website and watching all the videos and reading all the info on the new iPad 2 released today. And today around 1:00 pm Fionna and I got to Prince St saw the line for the apple store already going down a whole block and joined it. We stood in line for five and a half hours and I bought an iPad. I’m an iPad owner as of today. I love this thing. I’m excited about all the things I’ll be able to do with it. We’ll see how much I’ll fall in love.

As much as I want to talk about my Lasallian Youth Retreat there is too much other stuff going on with my family life to properly recreate that joyous occasion. I am completely aware and grateful that I am not the worst off child in my current generation at the same time being completely aware that I am not well off. To make a long story short I don’t want to move with my mother to Florida – in America a polar opposite  to my home in New York City – and my reasons are not unreasonable. I’m not behaving like a spoil brat (which is the exact opposite of my personality) I’m  just becoming a senior this upcoming September and I think  changing schools, to a completely different state at that, is not in my best interests.

And there are so many things I can list to support my argument. I’m just so angry and at a loss of what to do that I don’t even know where to begin. Deep breath. It’s not fun to air out your dirty laundry on the internet I’m just more comfortable with this method then talking about it in person with anyone. Ugh! Ok I’ll begin.

My mom actually decided over a month ago that we would be moving out of New York because she and my aunt kept arguing about how life was going. And I was really worried. I mean I was just about to finish my junior year and and I had this whole plan set up for next year with my classes and volunteer work and just overall senior goodtime. A while after that it seemed that we would be staying put and I was happy. But then a few weeks ago she brought it up again and I’ve been using all my energy to try and convince her otherwise. All the while she’s telling me either I become emancipated or leave with her. I’m just really exhausted. There are so many other details I could bring up but what good will it do me.

If only my John Mayer could burst through my front door and save me. And I’d be his lovely argumentative scientist wife for all of eternity. I’m going to escape into that fantasy now :)

danni *Wish me happiness – I really don’t want to become an emancipated minor >.> I’ve been kind of hiding it well that I’m not in the best of spirits let that continue sad people are not interesting.

Today, November 18th of the year 2008 it snowed in New York City and I freaked the hell out I was so happy! I haven’t seen snow in over two years so I can be forgiven for this brief moment of erratic"ness". Even though it is frigidly cold and I had to go outside for gym (lulz my gym class is called the polar bears) in a short sleeved shirt I still love winter to bits – after fall of course, with all it’s pretty falling leaves and my birthday. Isn’t it exciting to just wake up and feel (everything dying around you…kidding) that fresh cold and the coming of Christmas and Christmas music and the snow of all things. I’m just so eager for this winter it’s ridiculous.

So besides my over-hype about the sprinkling of snow I was blessed with today, I got some really good news in school. I got an 102 on my English exam, an 100 on my Japanese exam and a not so pleasing 83 on my American History exam. Also I think I did pretty well on my Math B test also, enough to at least stay in the class hopefully. I have homework to do, but me as the dedicated procrastinator, will probably wait until about 10 o’clock to start doing (curse it…CURSE IT!). *My fingertips are freezing off T_T*. My mom is only granting me this needed time on the computer because of this great news. Not my fingertips freezing off but that I am getting better grades.

Oh before I forget! The last episode of True Blood is drawing near and I am going mad! How can you end a perfectly awesome and fricken sweet series after only twelve episodes hmm? And what is this about Renee being a psycho killer – I didn’t like him that much anyway with his fake wanna be Hispanic accent (recently learning that it is actually cajun I am hearing…still bad though) I only tried because of red (why did I forget her name but I can remember Dawn’s who died in like episode 3 or something). I just really don’t want for it to end so soon. Maybe they will have a second season and maybe not, more so not than anything else. Though I really don’t think I can take anymore of Sookie’s confusiosity and igno-revousing of my dear and quite insane Bill. Seriously, Sookie is ridiculously annoying with first all her virginity bragging nonsense and then all the switching between to natural freaks hunks of nature. Can’t she just stick with one non-human and be happy. No! She wants to spoil everyone elses make believe chances. Hmph! *I cannot believe I am so good at this being pissed off about fictional characters xD*. Anyway, when it’s done it’s done naturally.

Oh and how about our president! Barack Obama what a hero. I can’t believe this wasn’t the first thing out of my mouth! Me talking about snow when America has elected it’s first African American President. Now all they have to do is give the native American a fighting chance and all will be love and peace you get it. Seriously though, I am so happy for him and this country I have even started saying the pledge of allegiance again (ain’t that something?). All that is left to do is pray for his safety and the benefits he will hopefully be bringing into office. Hip-Hop hurray (lulz) for Obama <3
