"It's such a pity to say, goodbye to you..." [08 Jul 2005|09:46pm]
[ mood | content ]

Well, life employed by Century Theaters isn't the horror story I initially pictured it. Despite coming home my first night upset and angry at my own naivety, I now actually look forward to going to work--crazy, no? The people are so amazing, and since working there, I got a .25 raise!--I now make $6.40 an hour. ^_^

It's odd, I feel like I've grown up so much this summer. It's actually kind of scary, and at the same time undeniably exciting. I think I finally know what I want to do with my life; own my own business--with a friend, of course. Well, restaurant-esque business. I honestly don't know how feasible of a goal it is, but I'd like to think I could do it. I'm not sure.

School soon, not entirely sure how I feel about that. With my newfound sense of adulthood, I'm going to miss working and feeling more of an adult alongside my adult peers. I'm definitely trying to set goals for myself this year, including trying to maintain a 3.5 grade point average, working part-time, and being a committed member to West Mesa's Student Senate, it should be a most exciting year. On a more social level, through working, I realized I really like meeting new people! So, little goal there.

Peace out! ^_^

"Now all that's left of me, is what I pretend to be..." [08 Jun 2005|07:11am]
[ mood | tired ]

Well, we had our first slaughter--I mean soccer game--last night. O_O We lost, 7-0. Oh, well. I had fun! ^_^ Even though I fell like, six times--yes, I counted--and a lot of my plays weren't anything special. Hehe. But, Desiree came and watched! ^_^ Which was really cool of her--so many thanks to Desiree for coming out for my game! ^_^

Work today! --pout-- Oh well. I like my job, it's just one of those days I don't want to do anything more than go online, watch my morning television like "Charmed", "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", and "Gilmore Girls", and eating whatever junk food is handy. Hehe. Yes, I know I'm lazy!

"If you go, go all the way, don't look back..." [01 Jun 2005|09:28pm]
[ mood | busy ]

Wow, this is the first summer in a very long time that I have been spread a bit thin--I like it, so far.

First, working at Century Rio 24. It's eh, not horrible. I won't be putting in my two weeks notice anytime soon. I really like the people I work with!--I think it is the major fact as to why I haven't looked to be employed closer to home. All of the people from my orientation are really nice and we're all learning the ropes together, little by little. If I'm not serving popcorn I'm serving drinks, making pizzas, making pretzel bites, sweeping, or wiping the counters down--I know, I know, it's all very exciting. Sadly, I've seen like, no one from West Mesa! I figured I'd be ducking behind counters in shame on a regular basis, but not as of yet. ^_~

Next, I'm playing soccer this summer on the team my dad plays on--along with my former soccer coach from several years ago. So, in turn, conditioning ensues. Blech! I jogged tonight, and kicked the ball around at the local park with my dad and my sister--the two taking a collective two hours-ish. So yeah, kind of tired. My first game is Tuesday, June 7th, so yeah, I'm cramming to get into shape. O_O Anyone who wants to see me play, and presumably make an ass out of myself, just comment for details. ^_^

Finally, my goal for the summer, leading into my Junior year, is to get into better shape. I'm just thin, not really like, fit, so yeah, I need to work on that--like I need more on my plate. So daily jogs will likely become part of my routine--fun, fun! Along with this, I might start watching what I eat, and that'll be a nice kick in the balls--I love my junk food! ^_^

On top of all of these factors, I still want to maintain some sort of social life! I discovered that just driving around and doing random B.S. is really fun, so I want to do more of that--though it might end up being weeknights as I had most of my hours at work on the weekend, at least this time around.

This concludes my little banter.

Peace out, yo!

"If it makes you happy, then why the hell are you so sad?" [27 May 2005|09:06am]
[ mood | exhausted ]

Well, it's official, I am an employee of Century Theatres; Century Rio 24 location! ^_^ Kind of excited. Last night I worked from 7:00pm to 9:30pm, prior to that I had a brief orientation that began promptly at 6:00pm. I got schooled in scooping popcorn, upselling all products, manning the soda machine and learning the ins and outs of the Slushie machine. Yeesh! It's actually a lot to learn, so I was rather frustrated, but I think I can make it--especially since my manager uses the "word" 'gooder.' O_O Today, I'm working from 10:30am to 8:00pm...jeepers! I'll be pretty sure I'll be ready to die by like, noon. ^_^ Tomorrow I work 3:30pm to 11:00pm, Sunday I have off, and Monday I work 10:30am to 8:00pm once more. It's $6.15 an hour so I'm not going to bitch...too much. ^_~ Especially with four free movies every week that I'm working--nifty, no? So yes, I better see some of you all there at one point or another during the duration of the summer months!

Peace out, yo!

"Roll me in designer sheets, I'll never get enough..." [25 May 2005|12:42pm]
[ mood | busy ]

Whee! School is out! I'm so glad it's finally summer. ^_^ --Does a quick dance-- What this means for me is going to bed and waking up as I please, eating whatever I want for breakfast, going out with my friends more often, and for the first time ever...getting a job! This leads me to my next point, I put in an application at Century Theatres--Century Rio 24 to be exact--and they called back and want me to coem in for an interview today! O_O It's kind of scary as I know little, if any, proper etiquette when meeting a potential employer. Oh well, let's hope I find me a job! --crosses fingers--

I went bowling last night! ^_^ That was a freakin' blast! Like everyone was there--everyone being Desiree, Christina, Sunny, Courtney, Sami, Adam, Alex, Regan, Jason, and Charly. I ended up looking like a big liar though, that sucked. I honestly have not bowled in like, three or four years guys!--I swear it! I played Air-Hockey with Desiree, losing both times, but it was all gravy! Last night was just further evidence that this summer will be so freakin' fun!--including Erin's barbeque, stay tuned for details!

Peace out.

Happy Summer to all my '07-Junior-bizzles, much love, holmes!

"I've been living in your cassette..." [20 May 2005|03:22pm]
[ mood | sickly ]

F-word! I feel like hammered shit today. Blech. >_< This was my first sick day of the school year, and it honestly couldn't have happend at a worse time. While not only missing the reviews for three of my finals, I didn't finish my Algebra project, and I didn't turn in my work for Spanish. Urgh! Oh well, I'll just wish on my lucky stars that Ms. Davis feels generous and takes my work and my collection of daily writing. --Crosses Fingers-- --Sigh-- Oh well, even if I fail this six weeks, I'll still be able to get my credit, which in the end, is all that matters.

"Sappy, pathetic, little me..." [14 May 2005|08:46am]
[ mood | okay ]

Well, last night I went and saw "House of Wax" with Desiree, Melody, Sam Tuttle, Adriel, and Ellaine. The movie was, eh, the cast shouldn't expect the Oscars calling anytime soon, but it wasn't totally off-putting. I was actually pretty impressed by Paris Hilton in the movie. Granted, she's not the next Julia Roberts, but I think she did a better job than the female lead, Elisha Cuthbert. But, the movie was more about gore than it was about scaring the audience. --Shrug-- But there were a few instances you had to scream, right Desiree? ^_~

In other news, my Grams just left for England, her trip spanning the length of four months. It's kind of sad. As much as she annoys me with her naive and unnecessarily critical statements about the people around her, I'm still going to miss her.

Well, there is officially one week, seven school days, of school left. Kind of scary. I don't know, no matter what the circumstances, the end of the school year seems to bring me down just a little bit. It's odd, the fact that I'm so bummed, yet nothing is changing. None of my really close friends are moving, I'm not moving, and barring some yet unknown disaster, I'll see everyone next year. I guess I will just miss the little things. Not my best friends, I'm sure I'll see them regularly. I think it's the ones you want to know better, you won't see them regularly, and when school starts on August 11th, you'll wonder if you still know them.

Peace out, yo.

"Is Hungaria even a country?" [08 May 2005|09:41am]
[ mood | peachy-keen ]

Wow, going out last night was the best freakin' time I've ever had! ^_^ Granted, that might be a slight exaggeration, but eh. --Shrug--

Well, I met up with Desiree and we basically just drove around, eventually calling Regan and deciding to meet at the "tennis courts." In my moment of sheer blonde-ness, I drove Desiree and I to the West Mesa tennis courts. We parked, discussing the fact these were ideal settings for a horror movie, and sat in the car, waiting for Regan, Christina, Ben R., and Ray's arrival. However, as we were parked, I noticed a guy in the shadows dressed in all black, all of his features black in the shadows. Needless to say, Desiree and I screamed like little girls and locked all of the doors. As the figure proceeded to what seemed like towards us, I couldn't get the car started--or into 'drive.' Finally, I sped to the other side of the parking lot, only to realize our apparent Serial Killer was a teenager walking casually around the school. Holy SHIT, that was exciting!

After a brief confusion as to where Regan and the gang was, we arrived at a dark park near my Grams' house. We hung out there for a while. Ben R.'s bike got stolen, along with his tennis rackets, and I came to the conclusion someone else was at the park with us--more screaming ensued, subsiding a few minutes later. A car pulled up and parked at the street, we assumed they were watching us. Needless to say, Desiree and I booked it to the car and drove off after Regan and Christina.

By the end of the night, we ended up at McDonald's--enjoying various items from their 'Dollar Menu'--and heading to west Bluff park. At the park, there were a couple of guys getting high in a car, a rabbit that sort of creeped me out, and a view I decided if I was ever going to kill myself, it'd be there.

All in all, that night rocked! I cannot wait for summer.

Peace Out.

"Two weeks without you, and I still haven't gotten over you yet..." [30 Apr 2005|09:11am]
[ mood | still waking up ]

Yeesh, I haven't updated in a long time! O_O I'm a bad parent to my Livejournal child! Hehe. Oh well, a little neglect never hurt anytone, it builds character--kidding! ^_^

Boy, am I ever ready for school to be over and summer to start! I'm really sick and tired of the routine lately, it's gotten really tired. But, oh well. It'll be summer soon, a summer of firsts for me. My first summer with a job, my first summer with a car, and hopefully, my first summer with a social life. I realized, that in all my summer's prior, I really fall out of touch with my friends though we're all still in New Mexico. But this summer, however, I'll be able to go and do...stuff! The possibilities are there. ^_^

I'm on West Mesa's Student Senate, now! I'm so excited! ^_^ Matt Saiz and I ran unopposed, as there were five Senator positions open and only two of us running. It'll be nice to be able to have some say in the happenings of our school. Plus, Student Senate makes posters for essentially every event for the school, and who am I to frown upon poster making?! ^_^ Plus, I know a lot of people in Senate; Katie, Ellaine, Iris, Carla, Lainey, Eva, Matt G., and now Matt S. It should be fun!

I got to hang out with Regan and Sara K. last night. That was a blast! I've never really gotten to honestly hang out with Sara, so that was great. She's really a fun person! She had me laughing so hard I was crying at Wendy's, so kudos to her! ^_^

Malls, Moo-Latte's, and [12 Apr 2005|10:04am]
[ mood | tired ]

Haha! I had so much fun last night. ^_^ I went to the mall with Regan and Desiree and had a blast. If we weren't browsing while laughing at the adult products in Spencer's, Desiree and I were bullying Regan into ordering our frozen coffee drinks from Cinnabon for us--thank you, Regan! Laughing at a little girl who wouldn't get on the elevator, not to mention licking Desiree's arm, and racing pennies down one of those coin spiral...things. Whee! ^_^ I realized that this is a brief preview of the summer, and I'm more excited than ever! --Shakes it like a polaroid picture--

I love driving, though I go the speed limit and get called 'Grandma.' >_< Hehe. Driving is just awesome. --Sigh--

"If I gotta get over you..." [31 Mar 2005|03:27pm]
[ mood | happy ]

So, yipee!--I finally got my provisional as well as got my Grams' car. It's great! ^_^ I haven't really done anything exciting with it that's worth even mentioning, but the sheer fact that it's happend makes me happy.

Next, I've moved onto an obsession with another artist. This time, her name is Aslyn! She's great. I'm in love with her CD "Lemon Love" and decided to post lyrics from my favorite song. Check it out!

'Gotta Get Over You' by AslynCollapse )

Peace out, bizzles. ^_^

"You lied about how much you knew, I thought you were my friend..." [18 Mar 2005|03:33pm]
Current Mood: drained

So yeah, I'm pretty pissed off. I've -really- tried to be supportive of one of my best friends, and it's gotten to the point where I honestly don't give a flying fuck anymore. No matter how badly this person is treated, they can't seem to admit defeat--though it's been there for some time now. I hate the fact that this person demonstrated such strength only a day ago, and as of today, well, that's pretty much in the shitter. It's just hard. Blech! >_<

In other news, it's Spring Break now! Yay! I'm excited. A week of sleeping in, watching mindless daytime television, and eating myself to death with assorted junk foods. All is well.

Going to the "Golden Corral" tonight for my Grams' brithday. Kind of uneasy about the place, but eh, I'm sort of excited to try it. --Shrug--

Peace out.

"On this perfect day, nothing's gonna bring me down!" [15 Mar 2005|08:55am]
Current Mood: cold...and loving it!

Wow, I could not have asked for anything better! Snow Day!--In New Mexico of all places. A little out of the ordinary, but who gives a flying fuck? Yay! No school, and snow...it's like Christmas! I absolutely love cold weather when I can enjoy it as I please. If I want to play outside? I can outside. If I want to be warm? I can go inside. At school, cold weather blows. When I'm at home and it's cold...I'm happy! ^_^

Last night was so flippin' fun! At 6:00pm my sister and I rushed outside in a mix-match of old winter clothes that were generally too small for either of us--having them from when we lived in Minnesota. But, all was well. We threw snowballs, made a crude snow sculpture of a woman's torso--Haha, but my mom made us take it down, we have a cop for a neighbor ^_^--and we dove randomly into the snow just for kicks. We finally came in at 7:30pm and I sat down to a nice cup of instant ramen noodles. Whee! It was great.

Have a great Snow Day everyone!!! ^_^

Peace out.

"I almost wished you would have loved me too..." [12 Mar 2005|09:44pm]
Current Mood: sleepy

Well, today was...long. >_< But, not totally horrible. --Shrug--

My sister's soccer game was at 2:30pm and, it sucked. It was a good game, for our team, but the other team was so rough--fouling and pushing left and right--it really made the game suck. It's no fun when people not only play dirty, but then go on to win because of a.) playing dirty and b.) bad calls by the reff. Oh well, there will be other games.

Tomorrow, homework is going to bite me in the ass. And that sucks. I've been slacking off considerably during the past testing week, and I have some catching up to do. I hope it's not something that will wind up taking all my Sunday, but who knows, it very well might.

I feel really weird right now, and I don't know why. I just feel really drained and sad, but I have no reason to be. It's really an unusual feeling. Oh well, hopefully a little sleep can fix this.

Peace out.

"Got stains on my T-shirt..." [11 Mar 2005|08:30am]
[ mood | peachy keen ]

Mmmm, nothing like a hamburger at 8:30am while watching 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' re-runs on FX. --Sigh-- Oh, how this leaves me anxious for summer--but, I'm willing to compromise...I'll settle for Sping Break. ^_~

And, kudos for me! ^_^ The art piece that was an 'Honorable Mention' at the Rio Rancho school, took 5th place at the Metro Art show at the State Fair grounds. I'm excited! I know, you're thinking; "5th place, big deal." But it's out of so many schools, I would have been equally excited for an 'Honarable Mention.' So, that opening is tonight! I'm excited for it, art shows are fun to go to. --Shrug-- This concludes my self-gloating. ^_^

Hmmm...what else...oh! Fairly, borderline, certain that this weekend I'm going to the D.M.V. to get my provisional licencse! --Shakes it like a Polaroid Picture-- And, the week after that, my mom is saying that we'll be getting all of the loose ends relating to the car taken care of. So, here's hoping I can drive on my own very soon!

Peace out.

"God lives in London?" [10 Mar 2005|03:55pm]

Scene from the "Gilmore Girls" Season One Episode 'The Third Lorelai'

[Richard hears from his mother at Friday night dinner.]
Emily: "So, you were on the phone..."
Richard: "Long distance."
Lorelai: "God?"
Richard: "London."
Lorelai: "God lives in London?"
Richard: "My mother lives in London."
Lorelai: "Your mother is God?"
Richard: "Lorelai..."
Lorelai: "So, God is a woman."
Richard: "Lorelai..."
Lorelai: "And a relative! That's so cool. I am gonna totally ask for favors."
Richard: "Make her stop."
Rory: "Oh, that I could."
[Later in the conversation...]
Lorelai: "I still can't get over that I'm related to God. It's gonna make getting Madonna tickets so much easier."

--Fin--

I love this scene, so I posted. Further evidence that the writing on "Gilmore Girls" kicks ass. ^_^

"If you're out on the road..." [09 Mar 2005|08:45am]
[ mood | relaxed ]

Well, no school today! Whoop, whoop! So, that makes me happy. ^_^ I like having random days off, there's something very relaxing about it. --Shrug-- And with every random day with no school, I can -taste- summer! ^_^ I'm so excited for summer this year, more excited than I've ever been in years prior. It's just...yipeee! With some of us driving, we'll be able to go out and do so much more and have a -real- "High School" summer. I don't know, the idea of it feels so grown-up and free...I can't help but smile. ^_^

On the television front, I am now addicted to The WB's show "Gilmore Girls." It's written -so- well, kudos to the writers of that show. --Nods-- It's great, and even better it's on ABC Family after school at 3:00pm --Dances-- So, yipee!

Hmmm, what else...? Not a lot really.

Peace out.
