Goodbye 2008

It's been a great and eventful year for me, and I'm so glad I met all of you! I hope you all have had some time to reflect upon what a big year this was. I know I'm ending 2008 much MUCH better than I started it.

okay guys, sorry for not posting sooner... honestly, life is just very very boring and mildly depressing, and i didn't feel like that made for a very interesting post.

but that all ends today!
i get to see amy today, yaaaaaaaaaaay!
i'm about to leave to drive nine hours to get to her, that's how much i love her.
(i'd come see the rest of you, but it would take a little longer than nine hours.)

....just thought you all should know. =)

Blog Addict

Is it too soon to post again?!

Sunday, December 21, 2008

Okay. Real post this time

Sunday morning, totally snowed in--let's do a little life-updation. =)

What Amy said... life is mad boring nowadays. To pass the time, I got an internship! It's with a PR company that does those lifestyle segments on those morning news shows (i.e. Good Morning America) titled "What to Wear to the Beach" or "Gifts for Kids this Xmas"--you know, where a woman advises the audience on what products to buy while pointing to said products on a table next to her. My job mostly consists of answering phones, packaging things, and buying Black Forest Ham sandwiches for employees. I have a lot of down time and the people are incredibly nice, but I'm not sure if PR is what I want to do for a career. Either way, it's a really good experience and it gives me an excuse to spend time in the city and do cool stuff like find delicious cheesecakes, visit sex museums, and meet up with Rachel :D

When I'm not there Monday-Wednesday, I'm hanging out at home with way too much time on my hands. Longest. Winter. Ever! It's been snowstormin' in the Northeast, so even seeing my high school friends has been difficult. I got to see a bunch of them last night, though. Two of my friends returned from their exchange programs last Wednesday, and hearing them talk about their experiences brings me back to when I just got home in mid-November. It feels like it's been forever since our semester abroad... there's only a month of break left! I don't really want to go back to school and be stressed out again.

Miss you all! And I crave Caramel TimTams every day. Btw, I tried the TimTamSlam with a Starbucks cappuccino a little while ago... it was absolutely as orgasmic as they all say!

Me too, me too!

Man, I love blogging. Thanks for giving me another excuse to blog, Rachel!

Life after New Zealand is boring as. I have nothing to do but sleep, search for a job (slowly) I found an apartment in Koreatown (slightly north and west of Downtown Los Angeles). It's two bedrooms and I'll be living there with Jonathan, my bff. I spent some time in LA last week, where I lunched with Gavin in beautiful "Monrovia." It was a good time! I've spent the last couple of days in San Francisco, making my sister entertain because I am SO bored in Yuba City. Fortunately, people in college are done with school today, so my friends will be home to play with me. Hannah is hopefully going to come visit me between Christmas and January 3rd-ish, and I am very excited! I'll have to find something cool for us to do for New Year's Eve.

What else is dog is fat...I'm obsessed with big, ugly sweaters and leggings right now. In other words, I look like I belong in a different ugly decade, or maybe like Lindsay Lohan. Most would not consider either of these things to be good.

I'm hopefully going to be able to have dinner with Becky on January 6th, when she has a lengthy layover at LAX. It turns out we might actually see each other, you guys! I mean, I've already seen Gavin, I'm going to see Becky and Hannah...Rachel and Michelle saw each other. So, you know--awesome!

I'm looking forward to going back to LA, finishing college, and finding some super sweet job, and then moving back to New Zealand. I still plan on doing that, you know.

The current boy situation is--nil. Wah WAHHHHHHH. Oh well, I guess we all saw that coming. Life goes on.

Alright, enough blogging. I'm going blog crazy. MUST STOP.


First post

Hi guys! So I had this idea for a blog for whoever wants to keep up with it. The idea is that we can fill each other in on what we've been up to (as if there's life after studying abroad...). I came up with this idea because Jeff's intern group is doing it, and it seems like a fun thing to do. I'll try to figure out how to let other people post on it... if you don't have a gmail account it's easy to set up a throwaway one. I'm not sure whether you can use other accounts or not. I'll look into it. Anyway, on my end I am in Fairfax, VA hanging out with the boyfriend and his family (all but one brother is here, and he has 3 brothers...). I do indeed like his family. Jeff and I just got back from a trip to NYC where I saw the lovely Michelle! Before that I was living with my grandmother in Williamsburg (VA) and hanging out with Jeff and other friends on campus. I didn't manage to get a job for that short period of time... oh well! Jeff and I are going on a cruise on January 5, and before that I'm going home for Christmas. It's been good but I miss you guys!
