BUGS BUGS BUGS
eewww so there i am being a studious bowdoin student looking at my bio lab BEFORE lab and i feel something on my ear...well i flick it off and it is not a fly or anything but a green caterpillar...YUCKY!!!! I HATE BUGS. WHY ARE THERE SOOOO MANY BUGS HERE???? So now every little itch is creeping me out. Well it was a big ordeal but i managed to get the little critter on some styrofoam and put it outside. Ok back to my bio lab...pretty soon i get to go to the coast and look at even more little gross things...ewwwwwwwwww. Hmm maybe the caterpillar came back with Susan because she had a bug lab today that involved rolling around in mud or somethng like that. Too bad she wasn't here...then she could play with it cause she loves bugs, well at least more than i do. Still they are cool to watch...just not to touch.

JP and Gary brought their cute little ferret with them when they came over to watch simpsons. It was soo cute and it made me miss my cat...well at least until it backed up and almost pooped on me. Instead I watched the poop come out of its butt and onto our couch. So now we have a poopy couch!

So I am now back at school and I realize that I should update this since I gave lameese such a hard time about it. Well my room is still a mess and we haven't finished unpacking yet. My bed is lofted above my desk so hopefully it won't fall cause I won't want it to crash on my computer. My dorm room is nice and I love the location. Sometimes I wish I was living in a social house because they party a lot more but I think it's best that I am not living there because it reminds me of freshman year all over again. I dunno it seems more social but too exclusive. Anyways I can hear everyone walk by coming back from the crackhouse right now since my bedroom is right along the path that the freshman take back. Earlier some people were walking by singing "going to the crackhouse and we're going to get waaasted" Oh they are just soo cool. Ok well I guess I have more to say but I won't because I am not motivated to write anymore plus these keys are really loud and juleah is trying to go to sleep so I don't want to wake her up.

the red lobster
You know what I just realized...that I have accumulated a mass amount of clothes over the summer. I think that whenever I go home instead of bringing all the clothes that I like at the time, I should just come empty handed because I never wear the clothes I bring home anyways. Ughh I don't want to start packing...i am dreading it and therefore putting it off until the last minute. Also like when I have my clothing obsession and buy one of every color in a certain item I can't picture myself not liking it in six months. That is just me being stupid though. Cause I mean if I didn't like it then I wouldn't buy it but I know that my tastes change all the time and I rarely like something old. It's pathetic cause the clothes I wear aren't even trendy so it's not like they go out of fashion or something because they are never in fashion. Anyways...
Today I went to the beach in a vain attempt to get rid of my horrible shorts tan and speedo tan and racoon eyes. Well I went with my family but that was still one of my goals. Well mission somewhat accomplished. I am now no longer brown and white...I am brown and red, bright red. Ahh I think my face is on fire. Anyways hopefully it will turn into a tan soon. And the water at san onofre had a contaminated posting with high bacterial levels in but of course that didn't stop anyone from going in it. Alrighty maybe I will start to pack now...right who am I kidding.

ATM check cards
Damn I got another atm check card today, one that has money in it...soo now i have already spent more money than i have the rest of the summer combined practically. Good thing I only put 500 in there. Well I probably should pack sometime soon since I am leaving in 4 days but I guess that is what Monday is for. I leave everything for the last minute because I can't pack when I might still wear the clothes...ugh such a dilemna. I also went to the orthodontist today and he thought my teeth were perfect and was asking me what my secret was because they have stayed straight a year after I got my braces off. He was like do you wear your retainer day and night? Haha I told him the last time I wore my retainer was in January...boy was he amazed. Well I guess I should start wearing them again at night just in case. Ok well I am going to go get some fattening food now, maybe In-N-out.
Ahh NO MORE TELEMARKETING!!! I am the happiest person alive. Hmm well I am working at wild rivers tomorrow but that shouldn't be too bad I hope. I didn't have to work but I decided to work for someone. Went running errands today to get stuff for school. I can't wait to get to school and unpack all my stuff...the only problem is getting it there. I hope there is enough room in my dorm too. It's weird to think that I will be back at Bowdoin in less than a week. Well I don't really have anything else to say other than I am very excited that I don't have to be somewhere at 8:30 am tomorrow. I wonder if my telephone etiquette improved from this job because I know I cannot talk on the phone....

Sun vs. Rain
I hate planes! I hate time differences! Ugh I never thought figuring out how to get back to Bowdoin would be such a PAIN. The time difference kills me because I have only 2 choices. A) take a red eye and get to Boston at 6 am in the morning or B) take an early morning flight and arrive in Boston at the earlies 5pm. Ok well that wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that boston is 2 hours from Bowdoin. So if I take the regular day flight I get to Bowdoin real late at night or risk missing the ride to Bowdoin and end up sleeping in Logan Airport. Or I could opt for option A which right now is looking the most appealing. Another slight problem, the earliest the bus or mermaid leaves Boston is at 10:30 am. So I guess I will just have to sit in the pretty airport for a fun 3 1/2 hours with my huge awkward speakers and other luggage full of stuff that I never wore when I was home. Fun eh?
Oh just for kicks I was checking out the prices on the United Web for the tickets that I use. Ok from Los Angeles, Hawaii 89.46 vs. Boston 91.89 dollars. Hmm Hawaii/Boston... damn. Oh yeah, Los Angeles to Australia, $157. I want to go somewhere exotic...I am sick of dreary New England even though I haven't been there in 3 months. Nah its not that bad but still... I would still prefer Hawaii or Australia over Boston.
Stupid Lights. Ok so I'm cruising home today at 1 in the morning,not a car on the road besides my van. Anyways so I hit a red light off of Moulton and La Paz. Ok I am driving a big van, it should be heavy enough for the sensors to read it. I wait there for a whole 7 minutes and the light still doesn't turn green. Meanwhlie there was maybe a total of 2 cars that passed by while I was waiting. I should have just ran the red light but knowing my luck I would get hit or some cop would be there or something. So I back up 3 different times and try 3 different lanes hoping the sensor would pick me up. I am even calling my parents because I don't know what to do but they were asleep so no one answered. Then finally a taxi pulls up next to me and about a minute later it turns green. Arghh soo frustrating...so word of advice, never drive that way by yourself late at night unless you want to just sit in the middle of the road with your car.

ughh. ok so I finally get ready to go over to pia's house even though I don't really want to, only to find out that my dad has the van!!! So now I am waiting around for my dad to get home so I can drive the "nice" car over there. Also I am the most indecisive person ever and I hate it. Like today I couldn't decide what to wear and I put on like 4 different pairs of pants and sweatshirts. The funny thing is that they were all the same style of baggy guy's lounge wear GAP pants and hooded sweatshirts just in different colors. I guess my wardrobe really is that plain and only consists of that and tank tops. Oh well I like my plain comfortable style most of the time, I think. It really is quite boring though and I should probably work on that. Lauren just told me that she had a dream and in it I was dressed super preppy!! Ahh that will be the day...me preppy, hah im cracking myself up.
Ok damnit now where is my dad. I don't even really know why I am going because I know it's going to suck and I will just sit there by myself in a corner munching on tortilla chips. I mean she wants me to go but then when I get there no one makes an effort to talk to me. I don't isolate myself, I am excluded. Anyways I am still bitter about yesterday because I am mad that people don't think my time is valuable and that I can do whatever they want at the drop of a hat. If they can't deal with the fact that I do have things to do then maybe I shouldn't be friends with them. It only sucks right now because I work with all of them so I am forced to see them and hear about all the stuff they did without me. If I didn't telemarket I don't think it would really matter and I would have been completely isolated by now. Damn internet... I wonder if the internet has been known to be a cause of psychological problems.
Just finished watching "A Knight's Tale." It was ok, it entertained me so that is enough to make me happy. Well I also went and got fat because my family went out to dinner at Friday's for my dad's birthday since I no longer had any plans for today. I am still so stuffed. I can't wait to start going back on the adderal because lately I think my stomach has quadrupled in size and I am able to scarf anything down in a matter of seconds. I end up going to McDonalds almost every day for lunch too and that is probably killing my heart. I hate this because I have no willpower whatsoever. I don't take adderal to lose weight but the side effects are a nice bonus as long as they don't get too extreme. Also the internet isn't working right now which sucks majorly. Well at least I will probably go to bed before 12 tonite which is good because I have to get up early to go to my lovely telemarketing job. I have been talking to more Bowdoin people recently and some of them are already at school. It's weird but I am getting more excited about going back, nervous but excited. Scary to think only one more week left because right now Bowdoin seems like a distant memory.
