5:13 pm
i had completely forgotten that a livejournal account in my name even existed.

well whaddya know.

i guess my temporary memory lapse can be attributed to the fact that i am now an avid myspacer(www.myspace.com/aprilanne. i like it better, it's a little more interactive... plus, the sense of voyeurism gives me some kind of creepy gratification). or maybe i could have forgotten because the all the drugs have fried my brain. really, it could be either.

ha.

i just wanted to post something here for my own sense of satisfaction, and to say hi to all of you LJers, of course.

later dudes.

9:46 pm - why hello there
hmm... it's been a while.

not much is going on. things are changing. i'm changing. i lost 30 pounds this summer. not bad, but i still have more to go. i keep cutting my hair shorter but it keeps growing right back longer. i have at least 3 men who are supposedly in love with me, one of which has actually told me so, but am interested in none of them. i AM, however, interested in one particularly cute blonde... no need to mention his name, cuz if you need to know, you already do. my college is kicking my ass, but that's what i get for going to a school that longs to be something it's not (i hate to break it to you, dear TCNJ, but you are NOT an Ivy League)... i miss most of you on my friends list, and i'm mad at every one of you for not trying to KIT (jk, jk)... and, as of right now, i am officially too tired to type anymore, so, goodnight.

12:44 pm - *hello, old friends*
so....


-life is good now.

-court was okay. i ended up paying 420 dollars worth of fines, but 420 is a very good number so i'm looking at it with a positive outlook.

-now, as i'm sitting here writing this, i find myself completely and hopelessly consumed with my friend Erika's dad. his name is Edwin and he's soooo fiiiiine... hehe... maybe it's just a stupid little teenager crush, but i don't care. i want him.

-my job sucks now of days, but i'm quitting in 2 weeks, so it shouldn't be too bad. the other summer hires are really fun... i've known Jen since last year, and i've known Alicia since i was in elementary school, so at least the faces are familiar and we all get along nicely.

-I AM OBSESSED WITH ASHLEE SIMPSON. Autobiography is currently my favorite CD, and i've worn it out playing it so much. all my buddies are sick to death of it, because whenever we're in the car, that's what's playing. oh well. it's my car, my gas, and my CD player. they'll listen to whatever i tell them to.

... i think that's just about it for now. school starts the August 31st for me, so i'll be commuting up to TCNJ 2 days a week this semester. hopefully i'll see you all around before then.

later!

10:57 am - *eh*
these past few weeks have been fun.

i started work. i've yet to be paid. i'm in love with my boss.

i made some new friends. i had a crazy party a couple nights ago with Erika, Dylee, and Jamie. those is some crazy bitches. Dylee was cracking me the fuck up talking about Fraggle Rock. OH MY GOD.

Sharon and i went out shopping and the movies. we saw Mean Girls and the entire time i sat there watching it i felt like Lindsay Lohan was sitting right next to me. Shar reminds me of her SO much it's spooky...

last night i went over to Jessica's and spent the night. Kim was there, too. i don't remember much of what happened...

so that's it. see you guys in another 2 weeks, most likely.

12:16 pm - *yay!*
yesterday was a gorgeous day!

i ended up spending most of it with Erin. we got hoagies from Broadway and went back to her house to watch Moulin Rouge, my favoritest movie of all time.

i LOVE Erin's house. in the spring, it looks like something plucked straight from a fairy tale. she has this little beach house by her lake that looks like a cottage on the waterfront, and on the shore there are these swings that dangle above the water from a really long branch... to get from the swings to the beach house there's about a 50 foot walk over some stepping stones, and there's no grass at all, just moss... yesterday the sun was shining so bright through the trees that as i walked into the beach house i kind of expected snow white and the dwarfs to pop out at me... i could die happy there.

i'm soooo glad to be rid of TCNJ for the next 3 months. i mean, yeah, when i get back i'm going to have a shitload of people to talk to, and i'm going to be on academic probation, but hey. at least i won't have to live there anymore. muwhahaha.

so it's 12:30 on Friday, and i'm trying to decided what to do with the rest of the day. should i take a shower? get dressed? and then what? *gasp* i know! i'll go shoppppping! horray!!!

so i'll be living with my older brother until my room is finished.

there just simply isn't enough room in my little house for all my shit just yet... this is cool, though. i'll have better cable, and i'll have my niece and nephew around all the time to play with. yey.

and i'll also be closer to mandy and erin, which is always a big fat yaaaaay.

starting now, i have 2 weeks until my job on mcguire starts. what shall i do with all this free time?

so yeah...

tonight is my very last night at TCNJ. i'm leaving with mixed emotions.

really, i'll only miss a handful of people: meg, jackie, jess, pam, alicia and john. they were the only ones who i really connected with, who i really came to adore, and now that i'm leaving i'll miss the hell out of them... i know i'll see them again, naturally, but still. it'll be strange not being able to run to my T-9 girls whenever i need them.

on the other hand, i'm going to be at home with the P-Town bitches, and they're the only ones i love.

i'm glad i came. i'm glad i experienced college life. i just wish so much of it hadn't sucked.

today was a great day.

this morning one of my professors announced he was cancelling class and the rest of our assignments for the rest of the semester because he didn't "feel like grading papers anymore." awesome.

the Whose Line is it Anyway cast was amazing... Colin was hystarical and I fell in love with Chip Esten... OH MY GOD... what a cutie... they were so funny... i don't think i've ever laughed so hard before in my life. they played a lot of great games that they've never done on the show before, including "the most dangerous improv game ever", which consisted of Colin and Chip being blindfolded in the middle of 100 mouse traps... it was great...

afterward my mom took me to applebees, which was yummy...

i wish every day could be like today.

Dear Mandy-
I'm writing you this letter to tell you that you are quite possibly the most amazing person on the face of the planet. You don't know it, but that little gesture of kindness you showed me today completely lifted my mood. I mean it. I couldn't stop smiling! Thank you so much for being such an amazing friend. Seriously girl, you're one of the best. I'm sooooo glad I met you way back when... "Can I see your schedule?" You were looking at me for the better part of 5 minutes, contemplating whether or not you should ask... you did, and thus became one of my very best friends ever. I love you soooo much, Amanda Marie!!!


Love,
Your Raye ;o)

sometimes i truly believe i am manic depressive. i spent the past week trying to convince myself that suicide was stupid, and all of a sudden i feel like i'm top of the world. things got better just that quick.

last night i:
went out to dinner with kate. she laughed at me a lot.
went to the Gap and spent too much money on clothes i don't need.
called my Valentine and arranged a date for later this evening
babysat my niece and nephew
talked to megs, who assured me that her problems are larger than mine

today i:
watched Lost in Translation
ate cookies 'n' cream ice cream
bought 2 packs of cigarettes :o)
am going out with Alisa

amazingly, all these things have made me feel remarkably better. i'm thinking i just may survive the rest of this semester. even if i am on academic probation.

OH!!! last night my brother went to this screamo concert and came home with his eye all purple and swollen shut. some kid elbowed him in the mosh-pit... it was fucking hilarious. i called megs and we laughed and laughed and laughed...

9:34 pm - *horray!*

1) When was the last, honest to god, time you peed yourself?
    Okay.  I don't know if this really counts, but a year ago after prom our huge group was driving home from Wildwood through the pineys, and of course there's not a bathroom for like, miles.  I really, really had to go, so Matt pulled over and me and Vanessa peed together in the woods.  I didn't technically pee on myself, but it wasn't the most hygenic experience of my life either.  lol.

2) Would you rather walk around your school shirtless or pantsless- no underwear of anykind. Why?
    Shirtless, cuz I kind of like my boobs.  ;o)

3) Which teacher in high school had the biggest influence on you? Why?
    Mrs. Butler.  She was the first teacher to notice my writing skills and go around bragging about them.  That really gave my confidence a well-needed boost.  OH!  Or maybe Mrs. Rubenstein.  She let me sing everywhere (well, not as much as Shar, obviously) with all the special ensembles and encouraged me to do the solos when I didn't want to.

4) How many times in the past month have you gotten high?
    Becky, you are truly evil!  In the past month.  Okay.  Let me try to remember... 7 or 8, I think...

5) If you could trade places with anyone in the world for the rest of your life, who would it be and why?
    Bill Gates.  He has the most money without being hounded by the press.  That's living.

THE RULES:
1 - Leave a comment, saying you want to be interviewed.
2 - I will respond; I'll ask you five questions.
3 - You'll update your journal with my five questions, and your five answers.
4 - You'll include this explanation.
5 - You'll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed
