We had the most successful high season. And I think I was the first woman to run it in a very long time....:)

Thankfully the holidays are over.

7:38 pm - Change of Plans
So... I am going to be home on thursday. That makes me happy. I miss the family a lot.

So I was offered a huge promotion at work with a very nice raise that included moving to Boston...I declined. This was a huge opportunity, and I denied it. But there is a good reason why. I was offered an awesome position at the Four Seasons/Ritz-Calton in Chicago. This is HUGE. So I am going to change jobs. I love all of the opportunities. I do feel so very lucky, and I appreciate everything.

Things are good...Things are very good.

10:42 pm - Oye
So graduation was a success. I received 2 of the five awards presented to teh class, including the management award and valedictorian! I was very surprised. It was awesome. Our guest speaker game me his card in the middle of the ceremony which is very cool.

I agree with Jess. I don't know when we all started growing up. I don't know when I did. I moved away from home, which is something I didn't think I would be doing so soon. Moving away from your family, and not depending on mom and dad for money and housing is hard. Paying the rent seems too "grown-up". I guess we all have to grow up and move away from home sometime. Makes me sad. I loved not paying rent and eating free food. At least I've succeeded in my goal to not live at home too long. Once I graduated I knew that it was time to leave mommy and make it on my own. It's all different here, but I'm getting use to it.

Rocky's mom said I had balls for moving away from everyone. It was never a big deal until she siad that.

I have my Heather though! She puts on a great show. I saw her play, Mother Courage, and it was great! I liked it so much, and the comp tickets were awesome! Yeah for her being so close to me. It makes me happy.

My address for those who want to send mail, and I promise I will send some back since I got to the post office and bought stamps is:
1638 west farwell avenue
Apt 1-a
chicago, il 60626

Everything is going well here. Lots of interviews. I got a job offer, which is cool. Awesome benefits and stock options. It is just a little too far away, but I'll see about that. I have an interview today for a manager position at bistro 110, an upscale french restaurant owned by levy. Levy does things like the grammys, they own lots of sports complexes and are bidding for the new yankee stadium. Manager is going to be hardcore though. We'll see if I have enough experience, or if I even want the job. The pay should be incredible though...:)

That's it for now. I need to go get ready to go to the city.

So, I have been so busy for the past few weeks. Finding a job, working, graduatig takes up a lot of time. I am moving to Chicago as of September 12, and I am graduating September 8. I have lots of interviews lined up. That makes me happy. Four seasons, marriott, levy ( who own restaurants and sports complexes all over including wrigley field and they also do the grammys and other huge sports events) and norstom, which would be amazing hours and benefits. We'll see what happens though.

Need a job to pay the bills. Growing up is hard to do. No more mommy and daddy or place with them to stay. It's nice to move on though. And I have me Heathbar to help me out, which makes me very happy!!

Not much else is going on. I have just been super busy. Sorry for not getting back to people quite yet. School projects are kicking my ass right now.

I'm hungry. I think I'm going to bake a cake.

11:14 pm - Update
Sending out applications soon. My resume is kick ass. I have too much stuff to put on it...yay! I hate the prospect of getting a real job. It scares me a lot. But I am sick of school, so bring it on real world!

It's almost summer break. My friend Laura might hook me up wiht some sweet jobs over break. I need cashy cash. I have a lot of homework to do over break. How much does that blow?

Things are going well. Saw the amigos the other day. It was nice to just hang out. Played some mad kent in which liss and I kicked ass. It was good. Besides getting stressed out about school and jobs...I'm doing well.

I went to the registar and it is a 90 percent chance that I am valedictorain. SWEET! My dad said that he wants to bring my sisters to graduation so they can see how smart I am. Good times.

I didn't want to work on job stuff so I wrote this lame entry. Meh.

4:43 pm - I love jappy food
We've been making a lot of sushi the past three nights...spicy tuna, spicy salmon and tonkust rolls...(fried pork sushi served with tonkatsu sauce) It's been delicious. I love jappy food...and Italian food.

I got to see my little alerson on saturday. It was wonderful. I miss her a lot a lot. You really do miss a lot being apart from people.

HEATHE! I will call...things have been a bit out of whack lately with the new scheduling and work...but I will!

Reading 100 pages on asian history sucks...as does having that class in the morning for 3 hours.

I'm almost done. 13 weeks to go and off I go into the real world. I feel super unprepared.

I may be moving for the last few months of school. I'm going to talk to res life tomorrow or friday.

Classes and work are making me tired...I hate feeling tired. I watched HOUSE last night, as usual. I love that show. It makes me happy. Seriously, who is ready for the season finale????

7:09 pm - Valedictorian...or not.
So I was in the running for valedictorian until my elective owned me. I deserved an A, but she gave me a B+. I don't want to sound like a re re, but I don't get B's. And now this may screw my chances at being valedictorian. This is more so for my dad and the siblings, since they will be sorely disappointed if I do not get it. I got it for my first graduation from AOS, and now they expect me to get it now. I wrote my professor an email, and she is going to review my grade. Also, the last semesters dont count. So this term I just finished is my last chance to get high grades. This blows.

I just don't want to disappoint anyone, especially not my dad.

2:51 pm - HAPPY!
Vegas was amazing. I definately recommend the Venetian. It was teh best hotel I have ever stayed at. Our room had a sunken living room in it. The rooms were amazing. I had so much fun. I love blackjack. It is hardcore. I loved all teh free drinks too. I am definately planning on going back.

This is finals week for me. Everything is making me stressed out right now. My lack of job, lack of money, and lack of time.It's not fun.

Tutoring is killing me. I hate when people come the day before the test 45 minutes before I am suppose to leave and know nothing. RERE's!! Ugh.

Heather! I am going to Wisconsin this summer for a week and I plan on seeing you for a while. I think I am going mid july, so let me know when you are free!!! And I also may be moving out there for good, but we'll see!

I talked to alerson. I was so happy. I miss that girl so much. And I think we've made a date for may 13th!! YAY!

We're going to have a big sushi dinner thing over at the ledges. I am excited. We're gonna get the fish from the market in the city and everything. Lobster there is only 6 bux a pound...YAY!

So I may be moving in a few weeks. We'll see how that turns out. I think I would be extremely happy if that happend, especially since Lauren is leaving...:(

Lots to do before friday...Oye Vay...

4:45 pm - VEGAS BABY!
In less than 2 days I will be in Las Vegas. I am so excited!! And I don't have to pay for anything, which is good because I am dirt poor. I am so happy right now! So very happy!

This is going to be a great weekend. Especially since when I get back it will almost be time for finals...bah, but this weekend is all about VEGAS!!!

10:59 pm - You shut your mouth when you're talking to me!
Things are going prettty well here. I'm really extremely happy. It's been a while, but I feel so good. School and people make me happy.

Tutoring is awesome now that Brian and Rocky work there too. We play games the whole time its great.

Friday nights are always at Brian's place. We are the beer pong champions. I didn't sink a single one in cali, but here, Brian and I are unstoppable...if-so-facto...:) (ipso-facto)

My weekend was pretty good. Spent a lot of it watching movies and drinking with good people. Forced Bri to watch x-men. We made some banging pecan pie with chocolate chips. It was deliicous. And played duckhunt and dr. mario...I haven't played those in years!!! It was great. And Sunday I went over to Woodstock with Pi-at and the fam. All-in all it was a great weekend.

Lot's of decisions to make about this weekend...It's kind of confusing.


So will anyone be home for easter? My dad's making sushi :) Although I may stay up here for the majority of that weekend. I'm not sure yet.

Family feud is the shit. I love games.

I'm still waiting for my stupid license. I'm getting quite anxious. They cashed my check weeks ago, so where is it!! Mine expires soon!

I miss people a lot. I hate being busy. I like it, but I hate it at the same time.

I want to fast forward my life to see where i'm suppose to end up. I have no idea what i'm doing with my life right now. I know I have lots of opportunities ahead of me, but I just wish I had more time to think about it. I don't want to get a job yet. I want to stay in school longer. I hate feeling like I'm being pushed into the real world before I'm ready. And I hate that I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up. And i hate even more that I am already grown up!

Bocce ball on sunday. I really like that game. Ever since the dominican I've had a hankering to play it. I feel like an 80 year old italian...maybe i can be that when I grow up...
A for the california class. I was so happy. I'm glad we finally got our grades. It's been way too long.

9:16 pm - WOO!
I am now the vice-president of eta sigma delta!!!! YAY!!!!!

It's been a really good day. I am happy. And now Brian works when I work at the tutoring center. YAY!!!

And I finished reading beloved and just need to knockout a quick 4 page essay.

I am almost done tutoring the accounting people...then they leave for cali...then the new group comes in... oye vaye.

Went to double o this weekend. It was delicious! Mike works there and sent us over free desserts! I said i wanted something in a goblet on fire that I could throw my name into...(HP) But the glass goblet broke, so he sent over a flaming ceramic mug! I love mike, he's great! And the night before we had mojitos and tequila sunrises...yay!

The next few weeks are packed...this weekend is st patrick's day...A day for patrick! and then my birthday is in a few weeks, then spring break, then vegas!, then snl...WOOT!

And I just realized that my brother owes my lots of money...that makes my bank account happy.

My ADA debate went swimmingly. We got a perfect score on our debate! No one wants to go against me anymore...everyone wants to be on my team. I argued against disabled people and won! I was put on that side of the argument, it's not that I dont like disabled people (heather no comment from the peanut gallery!) I just had to argue against them for the time being...When I argue something, I will win, I always win!...yay.

Not too much to do this week, except wait for friday and car bomb with chris. He is such an awesome kid. Cali made us really great friends, not that we weren't good friends before it, but now we're even better.

Stay classy.

11:04 pm - David Wright = yummy
So go Japan!!!! Go Suzuka!! I really never thought that a jappy would win in ice skating, but it's awesome nonetheless. Not that I really watched the olympics, but woot!

Classes are extremely boring. Financial management makes me want to hang myself. It is one of the most boring classes that I have ever experienced. Not that any of my classes aren't boring, but still, fm blows hardcore as does the teacher.

My huge cali essay is done with. I wrote it, and I think it came out alright. I just really want an A. If i get an a and not an a- then I know that I can stay number one in my class for now. I really want that, at least for my dad.

Wedding Crashers is amazingly funny. I love every single quote from that movie. Watch it and love it!

My eye doctors have messed up my contacts 3 times now. I get them and they are never the correct prescription. They are really dropping the ball on this.

Patrick and I went to the winery this weekend and got the peach spumante...finally. It was delicious, but I just wish we had finished the movie...(crash that is)

We also got up at 9 to get met tickets and spent a few hours trying just to get on, and still didn't get the ones we wanted. But I'm going to get a david wright bobblehead, and that is all that matters!

7:07 pm - At least it's a nice thought...
So I was glancing through my past journal entries, and I realized that I definately do not post as much as I used to. This is mostly due to lack of time, but I really liked looking back at old journals and kind of reliving those times. I don't keep another journal because, well my handwriting sucks and again, lack of time. I really want to write more about what is going on in my life so that one day i can look back and at least remember for a second how I felt.

I know that's weird and people will scoff at it, but it's the way I feel.

I'm going to try to write more, but I doubt I will keep up. I'll try though.

California completely wiped out my bank account. I am more than poor because I owe my mom money, and she owes the bank a whole lot of money. I hate debt. I hate talking about money. blah.

Being a senior is taking its toll. I just started the semester, and I'm already ready to graduate. 6 months...that's all I have left. It makes me sad though. I want to leave, but I don't. I love the people here and I don't think I'm ready for a 9-5 job. I still can't believe that I was a freshman in highschool almost 7 years ago. Time is flying by, I just need to learn to appreciate what I have left here, and not try to make it go by faster.

Valentine's Day was perfect. I was just really happy all day. I can't explain it, but I really felt happy, even though it was my first day of classes. Patrick was wonderful and set up a scavernger hunt for me to find my present. Very thoughtful. He's also making me dinner this Saturday. I really can't wait for that, since i know how frustrated he gets with cooking.

I have so much work to do. I know I'll look back on this and realize that this was not a lot at all, but right now I have to write 3 papers by tuesday, although one short one can be pushed back to thursday. The other two are my cali essays and the one is 8-10 pages in length. I need to get that started.

Lauren and I are going to start wine cooler, ice cream, mojito movie nights. I know...weird combos, but we can do what we want, at least for one night of the week.

Justin really dissappointed me. Hechanged a lot in the matter of 2 weeks. It makes me sad for everyone in the situation.

Patrick and I got our SNL tickets. I was so happy. I had totally forgotten about it, but we got them today. I just hope that someone good is hosting, and we're going to the live taping. I am happy.

Vegas has been booked for my birthday. It's going to be wonderful, especially since my brother and sister are paying for me the whole time and Patrick and I get our own room with a king sized bed at the Venetian. We're never going to want to leave the room since the hotel is sweet!

Human resource management is a good class so far, as is history, but finance sucks hard. The teacher has no idea what he is doing. My food writing class is awesome though. My teacher is a spunky 70 year old british woman. I love her. She's adorable and the class is good so far.

Chappy is gone. He was anemic and it was his time. My mom cries every night. But we still have oreo. I still miss chappy though. It's sad to look at his empty bed.

Back to some work.

I love alton brown.

and monkey.

4:45 pm - home
So cali was wonderful, although I lost my cell phone. I had a lot of fun and spent a lot of money, but it was all well worth it. I went from San Fran to monterey to ukiah to sacramento then to santa rosa. It was a really grest experience. Now I have to get back into the swing of things. I have to brush up on my accounting so that I can tutor it again. oye. Cali made me sleepy. It also made me hate the weather here. I came home to snow! The day before I was wearing my flip flops!
Vic is a weirdo.

I came home to a big bouquet of pink lilies and a present from Patrick. It was so nice. Yay for monkey!

My schedule for this semester is pretty good. I have mondays off and my classes aren't too late or early in the day. It's nice.

So we are taking chappy to the vet tomorrow. He's not going to come back. I leave for a month and his condition got worse. He won't eat anything. He can't go outside without someone carrying him. I'm really sad, but my mom is hysterical. She really loves that dog. Sometimes I feel so bad for my mom because she comes home to this empty house every night. Oreo is ok, but chappy is the one that really kept my mom happy. Everything is sad. I told patrick that i didn't want a puppy anymore becfause I dont want to be as sad as my mom.

Hopefully a more uplifting journal will be in the future.

At least I'm home.

6:18 pm - So much to do...
So, let's see...I have been so busy lately, but I don't feel like working on my psych final, so I will procrastinate.

School is almost over. This is finals week. I'm pretty glad its over. I'll be home for a long time and then cali. I'm so excited! Wine for everyone.Seriously.

Patrick and I finally developed our video from our vacation. It's very cute. I definately want to go back there.

Thanksgiving was much better than last year. Food was good and my dad finally paid me my money like 5 years later. I was happy. I came home on wednesday and went over to sal's...but there was no sal...:( but it was still fun! Then I basically made thanksgiving dinner, so that was fun...not really.

Patrick came over for dessert and stayed over so that we could be one of those crazy people who go to the mall early on friday. It was a good time though! He bought a new beautiful coat...FINALLY. and hot new shirts and ties. I of course had to buy 3 pairs of shoes haha and lots of other things, but i got a free clutch from express, so it was all worth it!

Friday night was phyliss's SURPRISE PARTY! It was so funny. She was surprised. I love her...Sal, I am going to steal her away one day...I promise. Yay for her birthday...almost..haha, but she was surprised and it was nice. Big Sal did a good job at the party. Good food and people...lovely time. I LOVE PHYLISS!

Congratulations sal on the rowing! GO TEAM ASIA!

Things are really good right now. I'm just happy. School was too stressful and it's almost over, so i am happy.

I love my friends. They are wonderful peoples.

Heather, I will be home, and there will be fun to be had! I'm actually home for more than a week this year! WOOT!

I have much more to say, but I do need to get some stuff done.

muah monkey.
