I get more accomplished when I live alone...

I woke up bright and early somewhere around 8:30. I never have been able to sleep late. Oh well.

I came upstairs and realized since I am the only one home, I have to get in the Sunday paper. I almost squeed. It was very exciting for me. I definitely love independence way too much.

After reading through the comics (ah yes, I am still a child at heart), I started the first of two loads of laundry. I had a lot of dirty clothes. Then, while that is washing, I have been cleaning my room. I'm almost done. I just have to put stuff away that currently doesn't have a place. This involves putting pictures in photo albums (I bought two new ones last night from Target), and finding a place for my NSYNC magazines. I didn't realize just how many I have. A lot. 17 with them on the cover (5 of those are Rolling Stone). Another 5 or so with them just on the inside, and 2 Britney. Okay, so not that many, but my three new additions from last night were fun.

I have to go fill the albums now. Bu-bye.

One, I have 400 pictures of the Popodyssey Tour (and about 50 that either didn't come out well, or I didn't put in due to space issues)

Two, they shouldn't be able to sell a photo album that claims to hold 400 pictures when in fact, it won't close properly with more than 320. I guess I could split them up into two, but that seems like a huge waste. Stupid manufacturers.

Three, my second load of laundry is in the dryer, and I'm almost completely done cleaning.

I still have to shower, do dishes, and eat something for lunch.

*she lets out a defeated "awww"*

My aunt just called to ask for my parents cell phone number. Apparently they just left, but forgot something there.

This means that they are on their way home. *sigh*

At least it will take about 6 hours for them to get home. My freedom is waining. Damn.

    The Top 100 Dance Songs on VH1

(no subject)


It takes 12 and a half hours to drive to Washington DC. Tickets for United We Stand are $60. I would not be able to get back for school on Monday. I can't find two seats together...yet. Maybe as the date gets closer...

I'll keep checking within the next week. And will not get my hopes up.

Also, Staind and the Family Values Tour is in Indiana on Tuesday. Seats aren't terrible.

I'm such a bad kid. I shouldn't go to either of these concerts. Not to mention my parents would hate it (though they would probably let me go). But I really want to...especially United We Stand. *sigh*

5. Paula Abdul

I think that's interesting.

Ci and I are totally sisters...

I took two of the emode.com tests she posted before.

My Superpower was X-ray vision. So was hers.
My Celebrity Match was Dylan McDermott. So was hers.

I also took the Ultimate Personality Test. I am a Rock Star.

You crave attention, the limelight, and the fawning admiration of millions. You walk fast and talk loud. You look important (even if you're not). You like expensive cars. You sculpt your body to perfection at the gym.

You have a bevy of fans and friends, and you like knowing how much others appreciate you. You believe in making a good impression. You like spending money on frivolous treats and nice, stylish clothes � forget the discount bins! But, hey, you're not some shallow materialist! Your polished outward appearance is a mere reflection of that soulful, strong-willed person inside.

At work, you're committed to excellence. You've got your eye on your boss's job. You're a real go-getter, and you really shine under pressure. But you have to love what you do, or else your performance slips. If you don't see that big promotion in your future, chances are you'll start combing the want-ads.

Emode is cool. Also, I'm becoming a huge fan of Bree Sharp even as we speak.

"I could drown in all this clutter, I suppose..."

While I was babysitting for Zoe tonight, my mom called my cell to let me know that they were home. She also had to mention how impressed she was that I cleaned my room and did laundry. This sort of thing totally bothers me, because she basically thinks that I usually do nothing. I get a lot accomplished in a day, even if it isn't physically noticeable. Grrr....Discussions with mommy never leave me happy.

I continue on my way through homework. Had just started Calculus (Cici had gotten home by then), and Allie calls my cell. Ben, her homecoming date, asked her out, so now she has a boyfriend. And Nikki is still dating JC. And Peter might ask Amanda out. And I feel totally and completely left out. But, ya know what? I don't care. Honestly, it would be nice to have a boyfriend, but I'm not going to obsess over it. It won't make my life any easier. If anything, it will add a whole new layer of stress and complications. Don't need that right now. I'd rather be alone, thank you.

It's like I told Allie, I didn't do anything overly thrilling this weekend, but it was good. Just because it wasn't bad. And I never felt like "oh, it's Homecoming tonight. Everyone is out partying." I didn't really care. I was content with staying home. I had the option to party, and turned it down. I was in a "me" mood. Not self-obsessed and egotistical, just not overly social. And it worked for me. I honestly don't regret staying home.

So now I'm home. In my clean room. Preparing myself for the horror that is Calculus. Hoping I can figure out what to do. We had a two question pop quiz on Friday that I thought I got one of the questions right on, but now I'm thinking I didn't get either. And if he actually counts it as worth something, it's going to bring down my already-waining grade. I honestly don't know what my grade is at this point. I'm hoping for a C, but I can't get a C. I just can't. I never have before, and I refuse to start now...

Shit. I'm not going to cry over a fucking math class. I'm not going to complain about it either. I apologize. I hate venting so much about this. So I will stop.

On the Line opens Friday! *smiles through the tears* That's a good thing. Definitely. The soundtrack will be released on Tuesday. Tuesday is also the Family Values Tour in Indiana. I want to go so bad, it's not even funny.

Music is so totally my outlet. I love concerts. I need concerts. I buy CDs every chance I get. That's all I spend money on. CDs and the occasional DVD. I was listening to my new Sara Evans CD on the way home. She has such an incredible voice. It's beautiful. Country, yes, but very good.

Okay, I have to get to work. I'll update before bed...because I want to. :o)

    Beautiful Thing - Sister Hazel

Can you say "p-r-o-c-r-a-s-t-i-n-a-t-i-o-n"?

Okay, this chain is the funniest ever.

[deleted evil comments. Should remain to self.] Anyway, Rachel, Ana and Gabriella amuse me highly.

Also....Ci!!! I was informed that OTL isn't opening until the 26th. One, where the hell have we been that we didn't know this? And two...never mind, that was it. Why didn't we hear about this? I think I need to get out from under my rock.

Hee hee...I made it gray because it's a "rock". I'm so giddy right now...!!!!

Damn it. I am so bad at this whole "get off the computer to do homework" thing. Oh well.

I'm gone now. For a little bit, at least
