i was thinking of something brilliant to write to you in class. i came back from class, and opened up the page so i could post my mental revelation, but james was tagging along because he didn't want to go home before his next class that was in only an hour. okay, he doesn't live that far away, but i think living off-campus has given him a lot less people to talk to, and he's kind of the black sheep in the house, since jamison and steve are both super-intellectuals. i figured he could use some talking time. so i didn't post anything, but i left the window open. then later, adam and i came back to the room to "finish" the physics homework (yeah right), and he ended up using my computer to check his mail instead. WHOOPS!
i am found out. he says he won't tell anyone that i have a blog, and that he has a blog too. he also said he got the specifics, so he can read it later. grrrr. i'm only posting this because he just fell asleep on my rug and whoops, now he's awake. adam, if you read this, i am mad at you!!! stop reading!

: (

of all the luck...
so the hockey league is getting this really nice new, indoor rink. hooray! it is about this time that they decide to change the adult games to the middle of the week instead of saturdays. that means i can't play anymore, because during the week i'm in socorro. also about this time they figure out that because i can't play, i won't be here, and because i won't be here, i can't keep stats anymore. so now they are looking for a new stat-score keeper. and they are offering not my usual twenty, but a whopping sixty-five dollars a day. that's 325% of what i was making. for that much money, i think i could find it in my heart to make the trip once a week.
but why did they have to get the new rink anyway? i was fine outdoors. this means no more long, weird conversations about nothing with hugo and diego. even if i do get the $65 job, people going up to the score booth in the new place have to be buzzed in. and i wouldn't be able to cheer anyone on or anything.
and either way, i won't be playing this season. i've played every season for seven years now. every season since the seventh grade. and if i quit now and try to come back, they might make me play with the ladies! oh, i am doing to cry.
i hate when things change.

ooo, i took another quiz! his one's got me pretty well figured-out. here are the top two winning descriptions of me:

Type Two: The Helper
The Caring, Interpersonal Type: Demonstrative, Generous, People-Pleasing, and Possessive

Twos are empathetic, sincere, and warm-hearted. They are friendly, generous, and self-sacrificing, but can also be sentimental, flattering, and people-pleasing. They are well-meaning and driven to be close to others, but can slip into doing things for others in order to be needed. They typically have problems with possessiveness and with acknowledging their own needs. At their Best: unselfish and altruistic, they have unconditional love for others.

Type Seven: The Enthusiast
The Busy, Fun-Loving Type: Spontaneous, Versatile, Distractible, and Scattered

Sevens are extroverted, optimistic, versatile, and spontaneous. Playful, high-spirited, and practical, they can also misapply their many talents, becoming over-extended, scattered, and undisciplined. They constantly seek new and exciting experiences, but can become distracted and exhausted by staying on the go. They typically have problems with impatience and impulsiveness. At their Best: they focus their talents on worthwhile goals, becoming appreciative, joyous, and satisfied.

and here's the one that they say i am the least like...

Type Four: The Individualist
The Sensitive, Withdrawn Type: Expressive, Dramatic, Self-Absorbed, and Temperamental

Fours are self-aware, sensitive, and reserved. They are emotionally honest, creative, and personal, but can also be moody and self-conscious. Withholding themselves from others due to feeling vulnerable and defective, they can also feel disdainful and exempt from ordinary ways of living. They typically have problems with melancholy, self-indulgence, and self-pity. At their Best: inspired and highly creative, they are able to renew themselves and transform their experiences.

i'd say that's pretty dang close... so here i am. nice to meet you. :)


happy new year everybody! yay! i love new years and new years eve, this is my favorite time of year. last night i dressed up like a princess and watched movies and played cards and pigged out! new years eve is eating and eating and eating, as far as i'm concerned. dressing up like a princess is going to be my new tradition. i liked that. i got to talk to two of my best friends on the phone, too! adam and carmen called me from urbana, and they were both really excited about the conference they went to. i can't wait to see my buddies again!
as for new years resolutions, i think i am going to try and stay away from getting all stressed out about relationships for a while. in fact, i am just going to stay away from relationships all together... not for a year, i think, but until i can get things figured out. cross your fingers!
