Anything that I got for Chelle and she enjoyed
12. Whose behaviour merited celebration?

14. Where did most of your money go?
Food, clothes and of course...GAS!
15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
My trip to Norfolk...it was great fun. We had quite a bit of fun together last semester. If only it would continue...lol

iii. richer or poorer? Richer.
18. What do you wish you'd done more of?

Worrying about things that I couldn't change

Feeling like I had more of a balance especially between work and play

Chelle, my spirit
35. Which celebrity/public figure did you like the most?
Anyone who spoke out about your favorite president! lol...i dunno.
36. What political issue stirred you the most?
This whole conservative-world-domination thing that the politics seems to be trying to do...focusing on all the wrong things. i.e. worrying about "keeping the sanctity of marriage" and finding "weapons of mass destruction" when things like the extreme neglect in New Orleans with Hurricane Katrina were staring some of these people in the face.
37. Who did you miss?
Well I miss certain things about a whole lot of people who I no longer communicate that often with.
38. Who was the best new person you met?
39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2005.
You cannot spend your life and your valuable time trying to please people and meet their expectations, regardless of who it is...and I allowed my spirituality to continue to grow which taught me a number of things about myself and how i think i relate to the world.
40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year?
"I wanna try that pill that people take
Make you believe all the things that people say
Sick of shuckin' 'round with a screwed up face
With my heels dug in trying to leave a trace "
So I have been neglecting this journal and it is not fair!
Its obviously 2006 and nothing has changed too drastically in my life. I'm starting my last semester of college on Tuesday! Finishing this whole thing is quite enticing. However, then of course you are expected to do something else with your life. I don't understand why I can't just be a professional bum.
I am still here. Chelle is still here. Philadelphia is still what it is! We celebrated 3 years on Tuesday (yay!) with some Italian Bistro, among other things. We also had a great weekend last week, which included Ishkabibbles, South Street, the movies (Wolf Creek...boooooo!), GameWorks, chillin with Sheedah and Alex, going to a small party and then Libations...which, suprisingly did not make me want to slit somebody's throat, perhaps even my own. haha. Oh and thanks to Sheedah, I have uncovered that I like to watch white lesbians dance at Sisters. haha. I don't know if it's unfortunate or fortunate that I didn't happen to see any mullets. all business in the front and a party in the back.
So anyway, we plan on having another wonderful weekend starting tomorrow.
I am hungry (I want cookies) and I wish that I was sleepy. And yes, I'm up AT HOME at 1 o'clock on a Friday night. So what! I like it like that! I was supposed to be working on my applications of course...but I didn't get very far now did I? Well, I have tomorrow and Sunday mornings. I work best in the mornings. I think?
You are a slut.
Ok that was random but I just felt like saying it! Goooooodnight!

You are funky, outdoorsy, and down to earth.
While you may not be a total hippie...
You're definitely one of the most free spirited people around.
You are very impulsive - every day is a new adventure.
However, you do put some thought behind all your actions.
Still, you do tend to shock and offend people from time to time!

You Are 29 Years Old
Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.
13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.
20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.
30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!
40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

just came home from live 8. awwww it was so great. it was hot as shit and i almost passed out but thats ok! i didn't realize how many people were really there until i saw ben franklin parkway on MTV. i wasn't too far from the stage, which i also didn't realize until i saw where we were standing on tv. sure we could see the stage but it seemed so close but yet so far. LoL. and linkin park and jay-z were definitely the highlight of the show. omg there were so many people there. it was so crazy. the fire trucks came and were spraying their hoses from the air...it felt great!! these people were out there losin their damn minds but nobody got too rowdy. i was actually surprised. except those girls that slumped the shyt out of that poor asian girl. but oh well...
even though its not like any money or anything is going to actually go to Africa to help those starving, dying, and living that hard life.....

Friday, April 29, 2005
omg my mouth hurts so bad. my gums are swollen, there are too many damn teeth in my mouth and its so sore. this sucks horribly. and the dental surgeon is only there on tuesdays so thats even better!
i bought this homeless man a meal today. i always see him standing around, and sometimes he's looking through the trash and i hate it that people have to do that. and sometimes i'll be carrying some food with me but i haven't eaten anything and so i just take it up with me. but then half the time, i can't even finish it so that makes me feel even worse. so today i decided to buy him lunch. just asked him if he ate hot dogs cuz there was a hot dog stand nearby. first he hesitated then he shook his head yeah, and then said just with mustard (LMAO). so i said, you want something to drink too? he said, "some coffee...cream and sugar" Homeless ppl are so gangsta...you would think people who eat out of trash cans would take anything available. but i guess if you have the chance to actually choose what u want to eat, then you want to take advantage of the opportunity. makes sense. i guess beggars CAN be choosers. so i gave it to him and he said, thank you verrry much. and i said...sure, ur welcome! so that was great. if i can remember and afford it, i'll bring a couple extra dollars with me sometimes for him or something. he's nice. maybe he can be my new philly friend. lOl.
in other news...getting a new roommate?? sounds fun. poor B. i hope she's really got somewhere to stay and she'll be ok. change is always interesting. someone new to bother...hehehe...get on the good foot and start packin! LMAO.

doing my paperwork...shhh...don't tell anyone i'm on livejournal. haha.
i had a purpose of comin on here but i forgot it already. dammit.
seanna came up here/down here yesterday. LoL. such a funny broad! awww!! bought myself into a little hole on south street. i think i'm gonna go return some stuff...even though i don't even know where some of the money even went. and I SWEAR! if i see Floetry one more time...LMAO. but i always see one but not the other but this time i saw them both in agent! they looked great, cuz i guess i'm used to seeing them skinny now LoL. they probably think i'm stalking them except that they wouldn't know from a pile of dirt! haha. but I think they are stalking ME. its possible you know....
semester's almost over. so near yet so far....
Wednesday, April 20, 2005
Romeo and Juliet is on...this is great. Yes, I am up doing nothing right now. LoL. well I'm actually trying to work on this paper, cuz then I think I'll go to the library and then to the gym for like 2 hours because I didn't go yesterday. So the semester's almost over...in about 2 weeks, I'll be a senior...yay! except not really "yay", because I have to sign for an LSAT course. Who told me I wanted to go to law school anyway?! my god! I feel like everyone is in "the dawn of the dead" and just walkin around going through the motions to get by. cuz we're all so damn busy and so frustrated with life! so therefore, i can't wait until the summer, not that it'll get that much better cuz I'll be working and going to school just like i am now. lol. why must i be so negative?!
yesterday i found our fat upstairs neighbor's keys on the ground outside. they were "kia" keys so I figured they were hers. I should have just kept em and stolen the car but then just parked it in the same parking lot everyday so she'd be like "how did my car get here?!" haha...j/k. i'm a nice person so i went upstairs and asked her if she had lost her keys and apparently she had. so good deed done.
yesterday was spring fling. people getting drunk in the middle of the day always amuses me. also, i had a nice weekend at home. well 2 days...got a chance to hang out with my mommy a bit, went to the club...which was cool but it just wasn't the same, but what can you do?! ah well...
i'll be going back again this weekend for the baby shower. can't wait!
ouch..i just cracked all the bones in my back.
i need some new clothes for my summer wardrobe along with a new body to put it in. LoL. i think i'll get to my work now and make an actual meaningful update later. we shall see...

when i recognize negative energy around me, I attempt to free myself from it. There is no need to subject myself to such negativity...I have been "spiritually warned" about such things. Therefore, I choose not to deal with it...which is where some faults may began to emerge because I just don't want to deal with bad stuff even if it is reality. But the good part is when I can remain positive even when things aren't going so well, and I can choose to avoid bad situations that will only weigh down my soul. So there.
In other news, I saw this good movie yesterday called The Quiet American. It was rather entertaining. It was a film about Vietnam...well not really, cuz of course they made it about some random white men in Vietnam but I still liked it. I think it was telling some type of introduction to the Vietnam war. And no it wasn't on the Sundance Channel! Not ALL the movies I watch in life are from there...LoL
I miss dancing.
I feel like watching Roswell.
Speaking of which, I feel the need to go somewhere hot and sunny. Maybe because I just finished watching 50 First Dates and it was in Hawaii. Which I'm thinking will be my vacation destination for graduation! Hopefully...or unless I change my mind. I can't believe I'll be out of college in a year...where did time go? I can't take it! And I did go to my grad review on Thursday. It was pretty pointless because I already knew what I would need to take. But whatever...just had to make sure. Oh and someone should really remind me to take that library skills.
I've been going to the gym most mornings and I think I've lost an inch or two in my waist. And of course my lower half..the last part of me to gain weight and the first to go. I mean my breasts and gut have been here forever...haven't they realized that they've outlived their stay?! So I guess I'll just keep at it and actually eat even better than I attempt to do now.
Lynn Whitfield looks great (again) in this movie I'm watching. She's supposed to be a dance teacher...What happened to her in Cheetah Girls (LoL) and Head of State? She looked awful. Speaking of that movie and dance, my former dance teacher was in Head of State. That was funny...
I wanna cry I'm so bored. I need to regain my peace of mind.

Terry Schiavo Dies at 41
I have to admit, I was still rooting for the woman...regardless of what political party I identify with or her race.
