Diares Of A Overworked, Overhyped Teen

Dec. 4th, 2005 10:08 pm X Factor

Twice this year I have been screwed over by the elusive X Factor. I had everything planned and ready. I was so happy and excited. Now I don't know. Now my future is uncertain. I hate X Factors. My plan is ruined. I don't know what I am going to do.

Dec. 4th, 2005 11:00 am Goodbye Maimi

As I sit here typing this, Wormack will be back in a few hours and I could leave Miami and go back to Broward County (until I move to Pasco in about a week and a half). Don't get me wrong, Miami was and still is one of the places where I really wanted to live, but not under the circumstances that I am there now. These past few weeks have had me living in Miami, but having all my operations in Broward. That meant driving 120 miles a day! Plus the dogs here were cool and all but they drove me crazy. I have some cleanup to do in the next few hours but it isn't as bad as the last minute moves I usually do. Anyway the Miami experiment has been interesting.

I decided not to postpone holiday shopping any longer. I went to some stores this week to see what I can find. I found myself by the Aventura Mall and thought I would check out their theater while I shopped. I ran into Lisa at Macy's (who I haven't seen in monthes) and we caught up. I didn't find that much at the mall though. At least nothing cheap. I was at Wal-Mart last night but it was sooooo crowded. I couldn't believe everyone was shopping on Saturday night. Finally I decided to do the cheap and easy solution: ebay. Actually you can find alot of quality stuff on ebay for good prices so don't judge me here!

Finances are improving dispite the setback discovered by State Farm's mistakes. I get paid today by Wormack also. Here's hoping it is an amount larger than I originally hoped. Holiday shopping is getting expensive.

I had an interesting long talk with Ashley. She and I basically discussed life and all the changes that we seem to be sappily going through. And the future was discussed as well. She invited me to see her peform next weekend, I hope I can make it.

Talked with Eric and Maddy on the phone last night for 3 1/2 (or according to Eric's dad, 4) hours last night. It was an insane conversation. For some reasons, when certain people get together, they come up with the weirdest most insane things. I wish I could play that whole conversation back. It was good times though.

I need to get back to cleaning and such so this is a good enough update!

Nov. 29th, 2005 09:29 pm Eventful

Things have been pretty busy this past week. I am still staying in Miami watching the dogs. I have been commuting to Broward County almost every day becuase of birthdays, holidays and school. That has been driving me nuts but has been calming down somewhat. Thanksgiving dinner was fun but the real fun was a few days later when we celebrated Dad's birthday. We all went out to Wings Plus and had tons of laughs making fun of Mom. School is getting more relaxing but I am not satisfied with the way I am doing. I promised myself things were going to be different. I feel like I've let some people down. Got alot of stuff taken care of in Broward yesterday during my visit. Turns out the insurence company MISPLACED my money and I had to go in and take care of the problem. I also finally got the payroll issue with Wings Plus taken care of and I mailed some documents out. This weekend I spoke to Eric and Ethan on the phone for like 4 hours. I can't remember the last time I spoke to somebody on the phone for more than a 10 minutes. We finally recorded "Three Sturgeons" and I did some stuff for "the band" on myspace. Otherwise I have been relaxing, getting ready to move to NPR and trying not to leave Miami too much. The commute is killing me.

Nov. 23rd, 2005 05:44 pm Happy Birthday

Yesterday was my birthday and it was alright all in all. Odviously I will do most of celebrating with other people on other days but I had some fun. I woke up early so I could drive down from Orlando to Tampa to sign up for classes. The other cars must've known it was my 20th birthday because I barely hit any traffic on 1-4 and 1-75 and even SR54 was pretty clear. Awesome. I signed up for my classes and this is what I'll be taking next semester.

1) Algebra (the second college level of it...I tested out of the first on my placement test!)
2) Teaching Diverse Populations (this one recquires field work, but it shouldn't be too bad)
3) Public Speaking (I do radio...how hard can public speaking be??? I hope I won't regret typing that)
4) Jogging and Walking (It's a BS 1 credit class..the only downside is it's early)
5) Opera Through The Centuries (this is a short 3 week class that I REALLY am looking foward too!REALLY!)

Anyway all of them (except for Opera but that's not until March) are on the same day!! All of them (except for Jogging) are in the same building and same floor! Awesome! I think I hit the jackpot this semester. It's a Tuesday/Thursday schedule so every weekend is a four day weekend. I could take trips to Orlando and occasionally South Florida if I wanted. I doubt I'll do that much though. I want to be able to chill out where I am.

I drove back and a made good time. Almost stopped in Fort Myers to see Motta but apparently she was already home. Tim's money order (and a birthday card) came in so I am set for money now.

It's pretty weird realizing I am in my 20's. Does that mean it's now weird to use LiveJournal, Myspace and comic books and stuff. Not that it'll stop me.

Thank you everyone who called to wish me a happy birthday and who wrote to me! It was good to know I wasn't forgotten! Thanks Tiff and David for letting me stay over and taking me to Hard Rock!

Nov. 21st, 2005 11:04 pm Tiffany's Crazy Dog

Today was a crazy day, but the mornng had a bunch of shake ups. I was afraid it was going to be a bad day. The rest of the has turned out alright though. Art class was cool and I finished my paper and made some mad contributions in class. We talked about "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles". I packed from my trip to Orlando (I am going to Tampa tommorow to sign up for clases). Apparently I packed, but forget my bags, so I am canniblizing Tiffany and David's stuff. Tiffany and David took me to the Hard Rock Cafe and did the whole "restauarant hostess sings to you surprise" thing. Daniel would've come too but he had a PSHYCHOOOOO test. Now we are watching Tivo Family Guy. All in all, a good birthday so far. Thanks Tiff and David for giving me a cool birthday dinne. THEY TOOK AWAY THE MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR BUS!!! I really wanted to see it. Tiff and David's dog is really not respecting personal space. Bigtime. I'll make this one short.

Nov. 19th, 2005 11:14 pm Miami and more..

So I am setting in a pretty nice house in Miami typing on a computer. I am taking care of dog's for Dominique's ex while he is in Brazil for ten days. The house is nice (though pretty far) and has alot of cool electronics and a comfortable bed. Really relaxing and just what I need right now. I saw Dominiqe early today and it was funny because we talk on the phone ALL THE TIME but I haven't actually seen her in monthes. Today was pretty fun, I made some money and chilled with RJ and Dylan. We went to the big Tate's Halloween (actually it's After Hurricane now) sale. GOT ALOT OF STUFF. Really cool. Can't wait to go through it this weekend. Haven't seen RJ and Dylan in a while either. Mella invited me to stay for dinner but I had to get to Miami. Hung out with Kat, Matt and Briefly together this week a few times. It was interesting because the four of us have RARELY gotten together since Randazzo. Mostly because one of us was usually having a conflict with another. Matt has moved on from his conflict with Briefly and was pretty decent with her this week. Briefly and Matt (her fiance not Pasco) had some problems and things hit the fan. One day he was cheating, the next day he supposedly wasn't, then he was doing minors and then it turned out somebody was lying. Whatever. I have my own opinions on this and I have advised Briefly, but it is her life and she can life it however she wants. I do care for her but I can't butt in more than I already have. There is a fine line. Some major money shake ups this week but it does look like I am financially secure until December now which is good. Perry is coming down next week and so are Tiffany and David. It's cool that I get to see some of my old friend's on my birthday. I can't believe I am gonna be 20. Anyway I am glad I am here in Miami right now. This enviroment is just what I need to be productive. I can finally get some stuff done. Thanks for the positive words this week Maddy, I needed them.

Nov. 16th, 2005 10:00 am Found a free iPod in my car

Well not doing so good in school now. Hopefully that is about to change though. I have to make some choices about History class though. I'll decide by Friday. I have to remember to call Dominique's ex later today about the whole Miami-Dade thing. I may go with Dylan and RJ to the Tate's "Halloween" sale this weekend. It'll be cool because I haven't seen them in a while and it'll be just like last year. My Uncle Jay come home yesterday so we all had dinner at Grandma Phyliss's which was fun and had some hilarious moments. Afterwards I chilled with Briefly. She and Matt are officially over now. He has been seeing other girls and Briefly was persistent enough to discover this. The only thing she hasn't found is where he is. He has gone missing. We hung out with Amanda and Matt (Pasco..not her ex) and Kat later on. The four of us have only been together once since Briefly went away to "boarding school" and it was less akward this time. Matt (Pasco not her ex) and Briefly are slowly cooling towards eachother again which is cool. Kat pretended (?) like she was gonna take a dump in my car. Yeah.....I didn't really know how to react there. Not much else going on. There's an iPod in my car. Joseph left it there this weekend. The immoral man in me wants to keep it for myself or pawn it for money. However, you all know that i'll just give it back to him next time I see him. Damn those morales!

Nov. 14th, 2005 09:21 am N64

Well the rest of the stay in Tampa was cool. Tim took us to the park and we all tossed around a football. Alot of hilarity ensued from that sitation. When we went to EBgames I got a Nintendo 64 used console with "Shadows Of The Empire" game. Yes. I finally have a video game system. I have never ever owned one in my life. Honest. You don't know how much my brother and I used to beg for one when we were little. After a while (around later middle school or so) I stopped caring. When I was staying with Tim and the boys in Margate earlier this year though, I got addicted to there old Super Nintendo system (I like old school video games). I would play till like 4 in the morning and then get up two hours later. So yay! I have video games now. I am really annoyed by these chatter boxes in the computer lab right now. Really annoying. Ugh. The drive back from Tampa was cool, got an early start (4:30AM) and beat most of the traffic and got to listen to some of my favorite albums (one of my favorite parts of road trips). I thought about Daniel on the way back though and I think I should send him a sympathy card or something. These two ladies are driving me insane. UGH!!!!

Nov. 11th, 2005 10:40 pm Zathura is whack

So this week has been interesting. Alot of stuff in school going down next week because of the time we lost in Wilma. Up on the West Coast for a few days with Tim and the boys. On his new laptop listening to a bunch of music. Tried to find the "Closet" videos again but I can only go up to part 5 online. I need to buy that DVD anyway. I am listening to Yahoo music unlimited. It's great. We saw Zathura tonight. It was a pretty good movie but there was an incest subplot in there which was just gross. Seriously, what is incest doing in a children's feature? Otherwise funny movie, but I got sick in the theater. I took some med's so I'm good now. Otherwise just chilling out and not working on my art paper like I really should do. Oh well. I suppose there is always other days. Anyway just chilling out and relaxing. The trip over was pretty smooth this time. I paid 2.19 a galleon for gas!!!!! Haven't done that in monthes. We're still doing 2.53-2.85 down in South Florida. Anyway that's enough for now.
