This morning I woke up to start chem, shower, dress and meet Eric for lunch. I cycled down to In and Out to meet Eric at 12:30. We had our long usual chat. Then walked down through the arboretum for a bit and watched his fave tv show on his new iphone. The weather was stunning today!! Absolutely lovely! Eric pointed out that there were turtles in the arbo, and we actually got to see one!
After our lunch, I cycled off to work and did the usual. I cant wait for my haircut! The salon is all decked out in a valentine theme and has been for the last week. Really cute, but semi-annoying to clean the windows.
When I work in the salon cleaning, my body goes into automatic and my mind goes over EVERYTHING. It just rolls and rolls through. Its really interesting and I always come to a conclusion. Today I was more day dreaming. Going through different synario’s in life.
Came home to homework. Saw Eugene again, spent the evening with him. Probably OD’d on protein thanks to Rite Aid $1 caramel chocolates with a protein content that I dont dare read. Tomorrow= Monday. Damn. I have class from 2-10pm with a one hour break. Too much.
And screw my History TA, he assigned 3 history chapters and a fat internet site that I have to read through. JOY. ass.
Back To A-line
Day 3, Month 1 -1/13/2011
So a big decision was made today in my life. After not even a year of growing it out, Im going back to the a-line. And I cant wait! The pic above is how I want my hair, perhaps a bit longer, but same colour and all.
Today I woke up with the day plan of get up, eat breakfast, Study, cut Nick’s hair, study, lunch, study. This is more how it went:
To my surprise I woke up at 11. (Turns out I set my alarm to 10 pm) Then I had breakfast and showered and Nick came over. I did his hair, (came in as a cave man, left as a movie star from the 90’s). I took him to the DC, he ate masses and masses of ice cream! Well- worth the swipe :D To this moment I am still picking off shards of his hair though, (despite the shower). When he left, it was around 2 or so, I went upstairs to my room to study, and soon enough distraction knocks on my door in the form of Johnny and Jess. Jess looks super cute and has a hot pink carnation for me <3 Johnny is in an odd mood again. Im gonna go talk to him sometime to try n help. Once Johnny left, Jess and I gossiped like mad for ages! We had so much to catch up on. Our conclusion (like every other girls conclusion in the world) F* boys. Once she left it was 4-4:30 and I started my chem :/
On another note I re-read the text from James, haahaahaa he didnt say it was ROTC only, he said it was an ROTC guys birthday so it may be odd if 6 random people come in. Fair enough and agreed. I feel bad for mis understanding and being odd about it for the beginning of the night. Shame. I have learnt my lesson.
In the evening I watched Take the Lead and Zoe and Grace came over to drop off my stuff. Such saints. I love them both.
Bed was at 12:30. Hopefully tomorrow is more productive.
P.s Mum left for England, her flight left at 7. and I am now the only blood Bailey in the country.
Day 2 Month 1- 1/11/11
Whoar where to begin. To finish off Feb 10th, I ended the night having a chat with Johnny. Something was bothering him and he wanted to get it off his chest. He only semi- succeeded but I think it did somewhat help him. He is moving rooms this weekend and had his job interview feb 11. I cut his hair that morning and I think he did really well on the interview. That night I told Eugene the idea of condoms for trade at Burning man, he loved the idea and we immediately went to the Gym to get some. I may want to work at the love lab. It seems like a pretty cool idea. That night he drew a tattoo on my back. It was fantastically epic so although it was the night before I had to make it my picture. Bed time.
I began the day with studying chem in the sun. A beautiful start to a beautiful day. It was so sunny and perfectly warm! Sitting out on the cement wall couldn’t have been better. Finally getting stuff done. Eugene and I finally turned in our burning man apps and I finished my camp app. I still have to turn it in. I skipped lunch and went right from downtown to History. I ended up skipping Math just because it was a lesson that wouldnt be on the coming midterm. After classes I went home, grabbed stuff and was picked up by Grace and Zoe to get some Tempura!!!!!! Moshi Moshi was a third home at a point in my life, and although my fave waitress wasnt there it was good to be back. After that, back to zoe’s to pretty up. By the end, we all looked super cute! Grace helped me scrub off my sharpie tat. We then went to Da Vinci’s 1920’s night and walked around a bit.
Being back at DV was hard. Part of me wishes I were there again, I just want to re-live the memories. But you never can go back. I didnt get to talk with the teachers as much as I wanted, so Im gonna go back on Wednesday to catch up. I felt horrible by the time I left. Walking on to campus, I was in full stride until Zoe told me to slow down :) I think I was excited and anxious. I didnt want to bump into Cameron, but then again part of me did. We were talking with some old teachers in a cluster and his best friend Sergio came up, and all of a sudden I felt so totally awkward. I froze and I pretty much just ignored him. I am so so so ashamed of my behavior. It was so unlike me. While leaving campus I had to message him to apologize. I regret more than anything not running up to him and giving him a massive hug because, as scared as I was thats what I wanted to do.
As my mood was recovering and Zo, Grace and I went to Taco Bell. (as mum always said tacky bell). There we saw a few frat boys that lived on the floor below. Didnt say anything. Had a bit of a laugh there tho and then went back to my place. Brang out the bottles, ate, were joined by Katie and Ben and went to check out down stairs. (The glow ‘dance’.)
The Glow dance sucked. A college dance from 8-11. no joke. not many people were dancing, the music was bad but the friends were fantastic so it ended up alright. We went back upstairs to regroup and then Grace and I ended up joining Eugene at a frat. (sigma phi?) We met a ton of people, saw a bunch of the ROTC boys there and danced like mad. Eugene was off his ass and was just trying to kiss me which annoyed me :(
Soon we were joined by Zoe Ben and Katie. I danced with multiple random men, mostly James by the end of the night. I was pissed with him at the beginning, but I didn’t care soon enough. Im comfy with him. He was a good dance partner. Grace and I had really good bonding time which made me happy. She really is an amazing person.
I got back by 3. Had a really fantastic night with the girls. Danced for the majority of the night which was well needed.
365: Day 1/ Month 1 [2/10/2011]
This is a bad idea. Me joining the 365 project that is. Why? Im interested to see how it turns out, im hoping to see a change in myself, and every day I see something, or think of something that I would like to share. So here it is. My life day by day, diary-ish format. For one year.
Today I’m mid way through my day. I spent the morning getting food from trader joes and mum, and then read The Song of Roland for history. When discussion came about we spent the majority of the time discussing the intro (the only part I didnt read). Though we did get the grades for our midterms back (something that I haven’t had the heart to see yet).
At some point today, just after lunch I believe, I had a bit of a melt down moment. I felt as if time had moved too fast and I just wanted to rewind into the summer and re-live it all again. I feel like an idiot looking at what I left behind, but as Zoe pointed out, at the time there was no other choice. College was dooming ahead, no matter what I did wouldn’t have changed that. She’s a really good friend and a really good person. Solid at heart, spirit, and more important to herself. In my opinion, thats hard to come by. Definitely something I haven’t mastered myself.
So here goes the first. I still have to live the rest of my day. Hopefully its a bit more productive, but we’ll see.
On a lower note (if even possible, you may think) I said goodbye to my mum today. She’s going to England for a month on Saturday. We said a short see-you-later, then ended up bumping into each other in Trader Joes. The picture is of a box of (much needed) mac and cheese that she dropped off for me. Im going to miss her. Hopefully I manage to hold together and not do anything brash or stupid with her gone. I designated Zoe and Johnny as un official mum. (they dont know it yet tho). And with their help and advice, hopefully I dont do anything drastic. It sounds stupid, but i have a history of life falling semi apart with mum not around or able to communicate.
Stupid indeed. Here’s to not being stupid, here’s to a change in myself, and here’s to the beginning of what im sensing to be a loooong year.
