there's something about the ocean

Summer session ONE is done...I finished last Wednesday and then on Thursday I slept until 1 and then went back to bed at 3 to wake up at 6. I think I was exhausted. I have had a nice little break and now summer session TWO begins.

But a lot has happened since summer session one ended and summer session two began. r at least from the last time i posted.

my plant


US Airways lost my luggage. forever. And in it..they lost Sammy...RIP Sammy. RIP.

i always said there is not much of my material possessions i would be truly upset if i lost...except Sammy and a couple of my pictures. I thought the only way i would lose these items would be if i ever had the unfortunate event of a house fire or something. but no.. US Airways has ruined my life.

Also, I watched The Dark Knight and Transformers on our "movie marathon day" so much for a marathon day.....i dont know how i could watch more than two movies in one sitting unless i was sick and dying in bed. Dark Knight was awesome, transformers was overrated

lets see...the roommates of the JACK house had a crazy party and almost had the cops called on us...we were playing charades and telephone....yes we throw some crazy parties.....and by crazy party, it was a very random assortment of random philly friends who randomly showed up to scream at the top of their lungs on a friday night.

oh i went to the jersey shore for the second time in my entire life. i love the ocean. it is so big and makes you feel so small. The whole time I layed on the beach, loving life, a memory of my friend Christa

singing with her beautiful voice this song by Ten Shekel Shirton the beach while climbing on the Jetty with Brandon at Cape Henlopen:

Something about the ocean
Makes me rise up and praise
Something about the heavens
Makes me stand in awe again
Something about the sunrise
Reminds me of Your faithfulness
Something about the ocean
And I'm lost in love again

The other thing that came up was this little gem

i looked at this picture and i read through my blog since new years and all I can think it where did the last 6 months go? I never thought so much could change in such a small amount of time. But is has, some good, some bad, some irrelevant...but change none-the-less. It is hard to imagine what life would be like without change, but sometimes its hard to keep up when life keeps moving things around in your life too. i need time to process. i need time to evaluate the change, and by the time i do that, everyone else has moved on.

i'm tired of playing catch up...maybe one day

Getting drunk?

researching for my alcohol addiction powerpoint i found a great quote from one of the websites....for all you people drinking this weekend, remember:

"The body metabolizes alcohol at the rate of about one drink per hour. Does drinking strong coffee or taking a cold shower have an effect on the person who is drunk? The answer is yes — the result being an alert, cold, and wet drunk. Time, and only time can sober a person up."

Well I am OFFICIALLY done with "classes" for summer session one. I have projects, papers, and a final until June 25 though and then summer session two begins on June 29...can i get a break please?
tonight after all of our big presentations some people from class went out for dinner and drinks and my favorite quote of the night would have to be
"4 shots of tequila please"
"its a MONDAY"

anyway...lots of work to be done before I leave for Chicago/Detroit!! My cousin is getting married this saturday and I was telling my mom today that I was stressed about traveling during finals week, but I thought about it and now i am super excited! Its pretty much my only vacation all summer (to detriot! aWESOME) and i get to stay in a hotel (my FAVORITE) and not pay for things all weekend (thanks mom and dad!)

Tomorrow is a hair cut and ORCHESTRA with Josh in our box seats! AHH SO EXCITED!!!! so many fun things, so many papers are getting in the way...

laurens breaking it down...and shes going to kill me for posting this


its always sunny in Philadelphia

Today was a glorious day for so many reasons. After work this morning at around 11, I went for a bike ride on the schuylkill river and listened to This American Life about classifieds, it was a beautiful show and it made me smile while I biked along the river.

Next I headed to the Italian Market to get this sandwich I have been craving from Gleaners Cafe on 9th and Montrose. And what do I see...Its always sunny characters..they were taping in the Italian Market! LOVE IT

Later I come home to my roommates and the conversation goes as follows:
Roommate A: Charlie pooped on the floor when I was babysitting him
Roommate B: NO he didnt! When I was little I was in the tub and I van vividly remember watching this brown thing float by me and I was so confused why my dad made some comment and lifted me out of the tub..I wasn't done my bath yet and I didn't remember pooping.
Roommate C: When I was little I used to think if i didn't make a really loud noise when I was pooping it wouldn't work. so i can vividly remember grunting in our bathroom with the door wide open and my mom saying i didn't have to make such a ruckus.

and this is why i love my roommates..such honest conversation. so deep.

Well before I cried myself to sleep last night over the depressing 5 - NOTHING loss from the penguins...i did something amazing.

i ate tater tots.

Jo, Andrea and I were sitting by the river and i think i may have randomly yelled something about tater tots..this sparked a enthusiastic discussion about our love for these small little squares of happiness. so on the way home, we stopped by Thriftway and bought tater tots, dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets and a bottle of wine. We completed our sophisticated night by watching Bedtime Stories (the one with adam sandler) it was actually quite enjoyable.

Here is a picture of the ridiculous amount of tater tots we devoured. Oh...did i mention the ice cream sundaes we had after?
