You won't catch me around here. [04 Sep 2006|09:34pm]
[ mood | melancholy ]

Hello, my dear friends.

I haven't updated in awhile but college has not yet swallowed me whole. It's actually kind of amazing.
But I wanted you all to know that this will probably be the last time I update this journal because I've made a new one. I've had living_in_ennui since the winter of my high school sophomore year. It's helped me chronicle a lot of good times, as well as some bad ones, and for that I'm grateful. I've also met a lot of awesome people on here and I'd like to keep in touch with you. If you would like to, you can find me at conscientiously. If you don't want to add me, that's cool too. It was nice knowing you.

Farewell, old livejournal. Here's to an amazing future.

I forgot that I was on Bianca's computer,so I accidently went on her live journal. Hello all. This is Andrea.

Bianca is well.

School is going semi splendid, well at least barrable for her.

First day. [19 Aug 2006|04:29pm]
[ mood | content ]

So I'm here in Orlando now. Yesterday was such a long day. I woke up at five so I could check in around 9. I have TV and internet and food so I pretty much have everything I need. Andrea and my cousin are rooming together and we’re so close that I can actually see their windows from my own, which is pretty convenient. Jolene is pretty close too so we’ve been hanging out a bit. Stephanie helped Patrick move in so I saw his apartment over at the towers, which is nice. Today Jolene, Andrea, and I went to the campus so we could find our classes. We also checked out the bookstore and library. I have to keep reminding me that I need to use money for food and other necessities so that I don’t spend it all on books. Since Jolene was here for the summer, she had a good idea of where everything is so because of her I was able to find all the buildings I need. I am so grateful.
So far I really like being on my own though. It's kinda scary, and I feel slightly overwhelmed but I think I'm okay. I don't know if it's totally hit though because I actually feel like I'm on a field trip.
My only problem so far is my roommates. One never even showed up. The other two and I are all quiet and kind of just do our own thing so we’ve barely spoken. It’s such a weird situation. When I was moving in my stuff yesterday, there was one in her room yesterday and I didn’t even know it because she was so quiet. Then the other one showed up, but didn’t come out of her room for a good twenty minutes to say hello. They seem to be nice but I’d like to get to know them a little better since we’re going to be living together. I know that I should probably open up and The problem with having your own separate bedroom is that it’s very possible to never see your roommates. And we have nothing in the living room, not even a TV, so there’s no reason to hang out there together. I’m not terribly concerned about it though because, although I wish we were all a little friendlier, we have a year together. And if it turns out that we don’t get along, I’ve got enough friends around here.

Gotta keep moving on, moving on, fly away, breakaway. [18 Aug 2006|01:38am]
[ mood | nervous ]

This is my last night in the Hill for a little while. Tomorrow I have to be in Orlando around nine to move into my apartment. I found one of my roommates on facebook but I haven't heard anything from the other two, so meeting them should be interesting.
Oddly enough, I've been anxious for this moment for several years but suddenly I feel very nervous and even sad. I don't like the idea of leaving anything or anyone behind. But mostly I'm afraid that something bad will happen and I won't be around to help with the situation or even prevent it. I guess I feel kind of like my parents. They're freaking out about me going because they're worried about my safety and my ability to basically live on my own and I'm paranoid about leaving because I don't want anything to happen here. That's something I need to get over. I really wish I could bring my dog with me. I've had her for seven years and, forgive me, but, I think I'm going to miss her more than anyone else.
But I finally am grateful that I won't be too far away. The two hour drive back suddenly seems very convenient. Not that I'm not excited to be moving. I am.

And now I need to go to sleep because I have to wake up in three and a half hours. :)

Pin your wings down if it's over now; Pin your wings down, just take a chance somehow. [17 Aug 2006|01:44am]

Since most of the Nerd Herd is leaving off to college, we had our final all-inclusive get-together before we part ways. We went to Johnny Carino's for dinner and then Coldstone for dessert where we mostly hung out in the parking lot acting like crazy people.

True Story: A few months ago, there was this kid that tried to insult us by calling us the "Nerd Herd." Lo and behold, we liked the name so we kept it.

I'll miss you guys. :(

You would kill for this; just a little bit, just a little bit; you would kill for this. [15 Aug 2006|02:00pm]

I'm still getting used to this "no more high school" thing. But I think watching everyone else go back to school has got to be one of the best things ever.

No offense. ♥

St. Augustine on the morrow. [05 Aug 2006|02:12am]
[ mood | excited ]

Tomorrow morning (a few hours from now) I am leaving to go to St. Augustine for one week. Naturally, I only have about half of my things packed. But anyway, I'll be there with my parents and some cousins and another cousin and some other various relatives will be visiting, and even my dog is going. Fun times? Hopefully. So, yes, I'll be returning on Saturday. Adios, amigos.

Unzip my body, take my heart out 'cause I need a beat to give this tune. [03 Aug 2006|03:41pm]

Click this link and watch this clip from "So You Think You Can Dance?" because it is totally amazing and it makes me miss dance all over again. :(
(P.S. The guy that choreographed it also choreographed a lot of *Nsync's stuff. Moohaha.)

I am back from New York now. I didn't quite enjoy myself as much as I usually do because we really just sat around a lot. I did like spending time with my family, though. I'm going to try to go back sometime during the next few months and spend more time in the city. I <3 the city.
