Words of Wisdom

Great quote I stumbled upon, something to think about, and maybe live by? We'll see:

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness
For lovely eyes, seek the good in people
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone
- Audrey Hepburn

While we all know I secretly yearn for attractive lips, and a slim figure (:p) there's some real substance behind this. Whatever way you wanna interpret this, I don't care, but it all comes down to one simple thing- Strive to be a good person. Life's just better for everyone when you care. Interesting, yeah?

It's been too long, and I couldn't ignore the need to update any longer, so here it is. Two Trina phrases could nicely descbribe my rentry into the LJ community. One could use "I don't know what you've been told
But I'm back bitches, yep I'm back niggaz", or "Yep (Trina...G's up (Lil Scarppy)...Im back (Trina)...Trina trina (Lil Scrappy)...That's Right (Trina)...I done stepped my game up and sexed my frame up (Trina)" would also be correct. Lemme see if I can sum up the past 2 months into one managable entry. The big thing for December was the cruise. Now vast collections of entries could be devoted to that trip alone, but in the interest of time I'll just say that I learned all about putting aside inhibitions and leaping out of the comfort zone, discovered various new grinding techniques, met a lot great people, and had a fantastic time. Immediately following was Silver Belle. I couldn't have asked for a better date. Claire looked beautiful, and she was fun, incredibly friendly, and really a delight to be with. Hope to see more of her in the future! Ummm I've become pretty obsessed with 'Memoirs of a Geisha'. The movie was good, the book was unforgettable, and for your information, I'd be delighted to recite the trailer in its entirety for you (including Japanese accents, sound effects, and a "single look that can stop a man in his tracks" that is not to be missed haha). January was quite a month too, especially in the social realms. I've started to discover how to branch out and meet people out of the confines of my own group and it's really nice. I'm loving finding some the great people we have out there that have been right under my nose (is that the right terminology?) for quite some time. In light of that I realized how bad talking about people is, because the nasty things you say about people, could become a guilty regret when you discover what cool people they actually are. I've grown to really appreciate certain individuals, and conversely grown to really dislike others. Some friendships were strengthed, others weakened. Subtle changes. I'm in "Pippi" nowadays also and so glad to be. It's nice to be involved in something, and even though I have a very small role, and had only two practices I am having a blast with it. What's going down at this very moment? Well, school's turning around and I'm not doing so bad anymore and actually starting to enjoy it again. Weekends are back to slow and dull as seen circa last year, tri's 1-2.5, and I am not enjoying it. I'm doing fine, I guess. I'm not wildly happy as I might've been only a few entries ago, but things are good. The future is shining brighter than right here and right now, hopefully I can tweek things a little so the things happening today are just as special as those big ideas of things to come. Thanks for listening, err...reading!

Contagious

I have a very grave announcement....the Myspace disease is starting to take hold of me. I found myself casting my biology homework aside and just getting deeper and deeper in this web of surveys and quizzes and Top 8's and blog entries. I just cannot stop! The only cure might be to give in and join the masses of those already infected by Myspace, because I won't be able to fight the "urges" (haha)much longer. I got into a dark corner of the Myspace world that I hope to never see again. Those girls...the ones who are horribly unattractive, desperately insecure, lacking friends. The ones who cover all that up in designer labels and hair dye. You know who you are, I know who you are, we all know w ho you are. I've never appreciated those people, but now I don't even have an ounce of respect for them. Profiles adorned in pink and exclaiming of their love for Louis Vuitton and their SuPeR CuTe puppy Puffypuff and words like "O-tay" and overusage of "cute", and always something to do with "people talking shit about me". GROW A FREAKING PERSONALITY! God, carboard has more character and dimensions than all of them combined! Sorry, I'm not angry, just judgemental and I apologize for that too. I'm working on it, really.

Connor and Diana pretty much make my day. That had to be said.

I HAVE NO NICHE!

8 days bitches!

Sorry, there was just no other way I could've phrased that...Anyways looking back at this week, I'd say it wasn't too bad. Long, yes, but bad, not so much. I got back from the Kessel household about an hour or go after a very different evening spent with Diana and Connor. Usually there's alwasy somwhere to go, nonstop laughing and talking, this to and that to do. That pace is great, but so is the newly discovered art of quote "low key" unquote. Yeah there's was talking and laughing and all that, but it was just lounging on a bed or couch with a movie or flipping through channels, or for some, tormenting the family cat. It's was extremely comfortable and nice to just appreciate being together you know? On a different note, I feel like Christmas is going to sneak up on me again this year. Yeah it's only December 9th, but I don't feel the Christmas spirit in the least. I'll overdose on the eggnog, blast the Christmas tunes, make the odyssey through the waves of cranky mall goers, whatever it take to feel dat spirit.

That's it.

Here We Go...Again

mood: pleasedpleased

Once again another fantastic Saturday spent with none other thant Connor and Diana. I will not go over today in extensive detail, because that would not do it justice and could kill some of the best stories so we'll just leave it at fantastic. What I can say is that the company was good enough that I did not want either of them to leave. I was strongly hoping that they could be imprisoned there for at least two life sentances....Well maybe not to that extremity, but you get it.

Now to end with a typical Saturday night signature:

School can die! I do not want to return.

Night!

Thanksgiving Break '05

mood: mellowmellow
music: Say Goodbye- Ashlee Simpson

Well this is me being pressured to update so i'm gonna try to scrape out something to say from the bottom of the mental barrel. I'll just sum up Thanksgiving Break, how's that?

Barely anything of interest/importance took place. But I did rent Aeon Flux which was very entertaining and frustrating, but cheats make everything better. Then there was Thanksgiving Day....a day of gorging ourselves in a six hour period and testing the capacity of our stomachs. Could the holiday be any more American? Then came Friday...the one day that really stood out. I don't know if I have mentioned this before, but I've realized that Connor and Diana have to be the two greatest people so naturally, whenever we hang out it produces the greatest times. We went to Connor's house for a while "Tis' the season to be with MAAAUUUURRRRYY!.....I'm a man." oh Angelique, so crafty with those hormone injections. Then we saw Rent. It was pretty alright. This was followed by a visit to Subway, and the makeup sampler at Whole Foods. Quite the artist Connor. Finally we came back to my house where I learned of a powertool fascination. And then the there was a trip to Target and some intense sitting in the following days.

I dread returning to school.

That's all.

Dating Advice from Robert Sevenich III

Nov. 18th, 2005 | 11:41 pm
mood: tiredTired, I think...

Two great quotes I just needed to get down...

I referred to Collen's new boyfriend as her "boo" to which Bobby cocks his head and responds "Boo? Ohp you mean 'male companion'." Later the topic of conversation got to kissing/making out. Bobby's take on that issue "I'd say 'No, that's inappropriate. Wait 'til the third date." Hilarious stuff. More about the evening later.

Enjoy,
-John

music: Whatever comes up...the iPod's on shuffle

This is in need of an update, and Dina is getting a little desperate I'm sure so here goes....

I'll start you off with a little dialogue snippit from last week:

Connor- Yeah well you're so fat that....
Me- Hey you can't dip into the fat comments, that's my domain.
Connor- *laughs* Oh yeah!
Me- Yeah, remember...?
(The following said in unison)
Connor- You're the ugly one and I'm the fat one.
Me- You're the fat one and I'm the ugly one.

Typical conversation between friends lol.

Now on to the other occurences. Work and stress levels have been fluctuating from week to week, but right now I am feeling great. My birthday has come and gone. I got an iPod nano (!!!!), money, and an unforgettable afternoon. I got a shot of confidence when I realized that there are a lot of people I can talk to/get along with just fine if I just drop the inhibitions. The Christmas season is so near and I can almost feel the warm fuzzies already. Oh and you know what else? I'm CRAZY about my friends right now, each and everyone of you guys are somethin incredibly special to me. Lastly, BEP are STUPENDOUS!!!

Out

....ahem, TrInA!!!!

I love my school more than you know, but why does it have me feeling so....hopeless? In the next 7 months, will I only get two days a week to not feel exhausted and stressed? I hope I can write this off as just a bad day, but ....ugh.

This entry is dedicated to one Diana Kessel, probably the one person besides me who reads this and comments. Here's an update for you!

Okay I haven't been updating lately, I know. Busy, better, and more important things are keeping me away but today was too good to not write about. School was fine, but afterwards....oh man. I went to the barn and called the horse and he actually came to me which was cool. I tried to jump on but he was too tall, but hey at least he let me leap at him without freaking out. Then I rode him "bareback". Neat experience, except bouncing on a trotting horse with a big vertabrae between your legs isn't exactly the picture of comfort. Pretty sure I killed my poor "perenium" lol god I hope that's the right term. Then I went four-wheeling for the first time and that was GREAT! Except it is impossible to make those beasts back up. Went out to dinner afterwards with Kara, Jessica, Katie, Eric, and my mom (all of the previously mentioned are barn folks, average age about 24, so no need to worry about if you know em or not). Man that Jessica is hilarious! The quote that stuck with me of hers was as follows: Waitress- And the Diet Coke must be for you. Jessica- What the hell is that supposed to mean? Hahaha Oh and we picked up my mom's friend Evelyn from work and she was commenting on how she, as an African American woman, would not fit in with political figures in China. Her memorable quote was "Yeah you know I have been known to swear like a truck driver, and I don't think they'd respond well to me gettin of the plane and saying 'wud up?'" haha. Now take into consideration that she is a small woman no older than 50, chock full of energy and "flava". There was a ton of room to elaborate on this and make it a whole lot more interesting, I know, but not tonight. Take it for what it is, enjoy the story. Have a good one!
