True Blood, A New School Year and Regina Spektor.

Although most people watch True Blood on Sundays at 8/9C on HBO, me and my family watch it Monday - Saturday (which ever is most convenient) at anytime between 7 p.m. to 9/10 p.m.. So, even though we missed last night's episode, we will watch it tonight! I can say that I am truthfully excited! The True Blood vampires are so much better than the Twilight vampires. Also, I am currently scouring my libraries for a copy of the first book in the Southern Vampire Mysteries, I think that is what they're called. They're the books that True Blood is so wonderfully based off of. Whenever I get the free time or chance to run over to my library I will do that!

So, I've been finishing up my summer work for the next year at school. Yay. (Please read that with dry sarcasm.) On Wednesday, the 26th, I have orientation for my sophomore year and then on Thursday, we have a 7-Period day, which is basically just like going through all of our classes, but they're 10-minute classes as apposed to however long our normal classes are. Then, for some odd, but blessed, reason we have no school on Friday! And then finally on Monday, the 31st, we begin the school year. It'll be nice to see all the people I've missed over the summer, even though I will miss the summer time.

From Friday the 21st to Saturday the 22nd, I had a sleepover with a few of my closest friends and we had a lot of fun! We watched Definitely, Maybe - which I've seen before, but it was still entertaining and then we just had a bunch of time to catch up with each other and basically re-cap the entire summer before school started. Then Saturday, we spent a good 4 hours shopping at the mall close by and even though we did get rained on for an hour and a half, or so, we still had a lot of fun! I bought two Regina Spektor CDs that I've been meaning to buy, Begin to Hope and Far. They're both really good and I'm beginning to learn the rest of the songs on the CDs, not just Fidelity, Better, Samson and Folding Chair! My favorites (not counting those mentioned previously of course) are On The Radio, Apres Moi, Wallet, 20 Years of Snow - fine okay, I really do like all of them, I won't list them.

Vikings vs. Redskins

So, my new white MacBook came in the mail yesterday! I'm using it and it's pretty awesome. I don't really have much to post... Oh well, I just found out that Brett Favre will probably be on the Vikings this season! Well, now I have a dilemma because I do love Brett Favre and Adrien Petersen (another Viking), I've pretty much committed myself as a Redskins fan. So when the Vikings and the Redskins play against each other... I don't know what I'll do.

That's the news :D

Fending off the jam monster

My new Macbook should be coming in the mail soon, I'm really excited. But for now, I'm using the netbook & I'm spreading straberry jam onto my toast. You know what I hate? Butter on toast. It is so disgusting - gak! Anyways, I thought an update is really in need and today was the day. I guess I'll do this chronologically?
Two weeks ago, my sister, my aunt & I went down to the Kennedy Center and saw probably the best musical ever: Spring Awakening! I really would like to rave on and on about it, but I feel I might bore you, so I'll just say one thing: It was fabulous & the tour cast (which I saw) is now in Chicago. Last week, I went for a 40-mile bike ride from a small outskirt town out of DC, to Georgetown and then down along the C & O Canal. And back! I was heavily burned but it was a good ride despite that. Then yesterday, I celebrated my grandparent's 55th wedding anniversary with a few of my family memebers and we went down to Assateague Island and had a lot of fun! We even saw a few ponies!

Queen Envy of the Kingdom of Jealousy from the Bowels of the FedEx Truck

Yep yep. Read the title.
So, Tuesday - I think that was it - June 16th: my sister, two of my cousins and two friends all went to see Jack's Mannequin and the Fray playing at Merriweather Post Pavilion in dear old Mary's land. Yes. I was enormously jealous of these five girls. However last night I did view an amazing spectacle of the human talents. I saw the Bolshoi Ballet Company's (out of Russia) production of the ballet Le Corsaire. Yes - I may have not seen one of my favorite bands (JM) play live (probably with crappy-last-minute tickets) but I did see a breath taking production of a show that was touching and funny at the same time. It was amazing!! Anyways yeah that's been my life for the last couple days. Also I slept at my sister's house in DC last night and was woken up twice last night randomly by her housemates. How interesting. Last Wednesday I recieved Sims 3 from the bowels of the FedEx truck. It's been pretty fun but I need to get a better computer to play it on unfortunately.

We're Attracting the Vampires

I think the Maryland towns by D.C. and the District itself are gonna be a breeding ground for the vampires. Yes. TrueBlood and the Twilight Series have finally gotten to my brain. But really, all this rain! All the time! Sexy Vampires better come on over!
Anyways, another update post. Other than the 'constant cover of rain' (there I go quoting Twilight) - I do like the rain - my eldest sister and I recently saw RENT in D.C. with the original broadway/movie actors of Roger and Mark: Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp!!! Needless to say, it was AMAZING. Go read the review in today's (May 29th) Style section of the Washington Post.
I think the rain is really a good time to listen to music. You have the ambient noise the rain makes and then your favorite Jack's Mannequin or Journey song playing in the background. What could go wrong?
Two days left of school!! Three exams left!! Two on Monday, one on Tuesday and then FINALLY! Summer time!
Yes I am excited.

.no day but today.

i am an alien...

music of course :D
Just listening to music. Haven't posted in a while actually. Kinda sad I guess. Freshman year is winding down, next week is my last week and then I have exams.
So basically this is just an update post - I promise I will write more when I have the time!!

Much Needed Post

I decided to write a poem-

dreams are un-born wishes. 
wishes are un-born actions. 
actions are un-born people. 
people are born.

your mind may speak differently.
but your heart will tell you what is true.

defy logic with emotions.
bind emotions with logic.

go with the flow.
be the rock within the river.
that breaks the waters flow.

step above what is expected.
of you to shock the world.

sing what you feel.
write what you feel.
draw what you feel.
art is based on.
what you feel.

love to live.
live to love. 
don't take shit.
from anyone.

above all.
believe in yourself.
and in your most trusted.
and most loved.
