Can’t Sleep…

August 21, 2006

For some weird reason, I can’t seem to fall asleep. I’m in Jenn’s room at Mel’s house, so the unfamiliar room might be part of it.

It’s been a while since the last time I posted, for various reasons, but I’m pretty sure I’m back to stay. I plan to do a little work on overhauling my journal’s look and such, freshening it up a LOT.

Tomorrow is the first day of the new semester of school, so I’m pretty excited for that. I’m spending the night at Mel’s house so that she and I can carpool the first day and I don’t have to wake up quite so early. We did face masques and i clipped my nails and got all groomed so as to make a good impression. I’m really optimistic about this semester, my classes seem interesting, my professors fair, and my outlook on meeting new people is positive and energetic. I have my outfit for tomorrow all laid out and ready to go.

Today Charlie and I finally got some much needed alone time. My parents left at like 8:45 to go sailing with a friend on the SF Bay, and Charlie got to my house at 9. After spending some time together we took off for the State Fair, which was kinda fun. The best part was being able to go with him, the fair itself was lacking. Though we went on a ride together and I had a good time. Afterward he took me to Elephant Bar down the street for lunch and I had a GREAT burger. He had to be home earlier than I would have liked for his dad’s birthday dinner, but thats totally fine.

However gay of me it may be, I’m really liking what I’ve heard of Christina Aguilera’s new album “Back to Basics.” I love the classic jazz era and the attitude she brings to the genre and the way its blended with modern styles as well is great. I was really surprised at how emotional and real-sounding the songs “Hurt” and “The Right Man” ended up being. And the song “Nasty Naughty Boy” makes me think of someone in a Moulin Rouge-like costume crawling sexily along a dinner table, stop and take a sip of a wine glass, throw it at the wall, and be all sexy-like. But that’s just me. =)

Friday is my 19th birthday!! I’m only excited because Charlie apparently has some plans for it, and that’s never happened for me before! So I’m telling my family that they have until 3 PM, and after that I’m going out with friends. They can push the birthday dinner back to Sunday. I got my first present yesterday too. My parents bought me a brand new cell phone since my Sidekick II kinda konked out on me. I’ll have a new number in November because of the way we swung the deal, but for now I’m using my Samsung t509 with my same number.

I would kinda like to change this blog from a personal diatribe to something a little more hybrid-ized. Right now it’s simply an outlet for my personal ravings, but with my desire to do more serious writing, this seems like it would be a good alternative outlet for that. Any input or ideas are more than welcome. Lately I haven’t had a whole lot of material on which to write, and posting news articles I’ve written just onto my LJ seems like a bit of a waste. But we’ll see. Now that it’s a LOT more convenient for me to post to this, I’ll be doing it a lot more often. Hopefully given time it will become something I’m a little more happy with.

Anyway, it’s now officially way too late for me to be awake, so I’m going to try to head off to sleep. Catch you all later!
