[Current Music |OH! you're words are nice mimi.....ahhah:)]

so...it's been quite awhile.....life has been very interesting during the past few months. spring break is nearly over and, as usual, i have accomplished far less than i had hoped. eh. at least i always set goals for myself...even if i never reach them. i wish that my friends had been around more this past week...at least then i could have spent time with them, instead of having a spring break dominated by walgreens. which i will actually be glad for when i get my paycheck, but right now i just miss my girls:)
things i'm loving right now:
sex and the city. as always.
warm weather! flip flops!
the body extension project for bea's class
braids
scrambled eggs
making fun of adam pascal with linds
no production assignments
team awesome at work:)
kicking theatre history and lit's ass
a triple bunk bed in NY with ash and ash..ahhaa
puppies
picnics

things that make me go 'arghhhhhh':
cranky old customers at walgreens
scene painting
giant buckets of crisco
close-toed shoes
bills
slow drivers
crushed velvet
symbolism

i've been waiting for about a week to hear about an internship in door county at door off broadway..it would be pretty fun- ash and brady are interning there this summer as well, and we could all live together and have bonfires and go out and......okay, i don't want to get to excited until it's a for-sure thing. i will say, though, that the director is one flighty lady:) i thought i had issues with deadlines and such, but she is ten times worse! she's moved the deadline at least four times since i began talking with her about this internship and it's driving me crazy! i just want to know the result, because if i don't get it, i need to get my ass in gear and hurry to apply to others.......she has until monday. that is it. after that, she will no longer get the opportunity to have my brilliance be a part of her shows this summer...hehahhaha. alright, i've put off the fafsa and scene painting long enough. must go work.

[Current Mood |cynicalcynical]
[Current Music |werid schizophrenic-type man yelling at the librarian]

thanksgiving is over. rats. i wish i could stay home until next semester. this whole semester makes me want to go to sleep and never think about it again. i am so glad i'm graduating next year...i need to get out of viterbo and into NEW YORK! i hope i can get a job.....

i feel as if i've been crying this whole semester. about money, about people, about nothing....i don't know why...every little thing i see somehow makes me tear up and then i can't help but cry about it. i never used to cry about anything, so the fact that this has all of a sudden popped up is kind of freaking me out.

also, as usual, i don't have any money. only this time i didn't spend it frivously or lose it...i just don't have it. i'm glad i don't really have any production assignments this next semester because i really need to work approximately thirty hours a week in order to keep up with my rent and bills and slowly begin paying off the huge amounts of debt i've acquired. i wish i could just ask for all my bills to be paid for christmas...but that would be very sad...waking up on christmas to a couple bills being paid. yeech. what i am worried about, though, is buying people christmas gifts. i know everybody says that it's okay, they understand etc....that i don't have any money...but that doesn't make it any easier to not buy them something. i feel horrible. this will be the first christmas since i was like 5 that i didn't get everyone gifts. okay, my rant about money is done.

i really should be working on my presentation for theatre history and lit. but i don't feel like it right now. maybe later tonight. my outline is already late, so i figure i should go ahead and make it easier for janet to grade and make it all late. so really i'm just looking out for her, and what will make her own life easier. i am a model student. haha.

my birthday is in less than one month. soon i will be able to join most of the general public in la crosse stumbling around downtown, trying to remember which bar i've already been to that night. of course, i won't be able to pay for my own drinks...how long do you think i can milk the 'i just turned 21, so buy me a drink' speech? i figure it has a shelf life of about a week, after that, i'm on my own. it's just as well...i shouldn't be out drinking my life away...i should be reading 'fuente ovejuna' and writing a stellar presentation on it.

it snowed yesterday and my car was buried this morning.

i haven't showered yet today.

i miss abby and heather. a lot.

i lost my happy camp cd two years ago and still really miss it. i need another.

i also lost a lot of other cds freshman year.

i want to go visit emily......perhaps my car will make it.

i really wish there was a felicity marathon on or something...i feel like drowning myself in self-pity, bad tv and macaroni and cheese from noodles. la crosse really needs to get on the ball and get a noodles and a qdoba. my life would then be complete.

not to be too second-grade or anything, but i'm pretty sure i have a crush and i can't really do anything about it. maybe i'll write him a note or something. ahah:)

'kay bye.

could someone please make a decision about what i should do with my life? because i'm too scared to.....












oh Portfolio Review, how you toy with my already fragile emotional health.


good things: portfolio review is over, free movie nights, midsemester break, showchoir, modeling for makeup classes, wearing heels, eyelash curlers, singing, painting in stagecraft, ash ash and linds...my girls who can always vent along side me and then immediately make me smile, making masks in costume practicum


bad things: portfolio review happened, lack of sleep create gaunt, tired look on face, foreign lanuguages i don't understand, blisters, car insurance, kettle cooked chips, overbooked schedules, being 'unhireable', thinking about being typed in music theatre lab, wandering aimlessly through life and trying desparately to fix that without ever really accomplising that


there. i've looked at both the good and the bad. my duty to treat my goods and bads equally is done. mazeltov!



question of the day which i've pondered with several people already this week: what would life be like to be a 'normal' college student, whose only responsibility is to go to class and pass those classes?

i think i would get bored.

but, then again, i'm not really sure.

yeah....i'm pretty sure i'd be bored.

damn you facebook and your wily ways... [Oct. 3rd, 2005|01:50 am]
KATEA
[Current Mood |dorkydorky]
[Current Music |creepy silence of apt. complex parking lot..]

as is tradition, i majorly put off doing my first script review for theatre history and lit......and, as usual, am up to the wee hours of the morning doing my very best work:) at least i'm consistent.



whoever invented facebook should have to write very lengthy letters to my professors, telling them how easy it is to become ensnared in the web (literally and figuratively) that is facebook.



after those letters are received, i think letters from the creators of livejournal would also be appropriate and appreciated. however, i do apologize to livejournal for being demoted to second place on my list of Addictive Internet Activities.


here's the one problem i have with all these fun facebook groups i read about on everyone's profiles. i can't join them! i realize that i could easily start my own viterbo chapter of the exact same group, but will not because A)i would rather just click a couple icons than go through all the group start-up process...which i do realize only takes approximately 49 seconds...clicking icons is still shorter ....and B)all those groups with a million different chapters get kind of annoying......plus, i want to be in groups with people that arent' from my school and i can't join many of them if i don't go to the same college....arghhghghghghghghgh

and now i'm annoyed that groups on facebook has got me ranting on livejournal. i need to move a remote country and spend three years detoxing from all these web-things......ahh, those days when i didn't even know how to google anything.


also, i hate reading a whole book on how to use MLA on my papers. books are supposed to take me to another place...the only place MLA takes me is a huge bonfire in which i can chuck the evil book and all its' ways to quote neo-classical text.


i quite like those Greek playwrights. especially aristophanes.


i remember the good old days with Naomi in English last year. oh to be thought brilliant by your English professor.


t-minus seven hours til this paper is due...
