Happy Halloween!

Great start to the Halloween weekend. Friday night was dinner and renting movies w/ Mark & Julie (Fever Pitch sucks!). Saturday night was the Panarchy Gatsby Party - something we all thought we should do at least once before we graduated. The party itself was pretty awkward (we didn't know many people, and the one person we did know was really being a big jerk all night. I now despise him for the most part), but it was SOOOO much fun dressing up (see pic below) and the Sig Ep Halloween party afterwards was also a good time.

All leading up to TONIGHT - the hottest damn Halloween party ever. We're planning on around 40 people, have 8 different kinds of drinks, 4 sexy costumes and 1 sexy pumpkin. It's going to be so much fun!!!!! Updates to come I'm sure.

Jon Stewart

On Dartmouth, as on every single other college campus I'm sure, there's a movement to get Jon Stewart nominated as commencement speaker. Of course, it'll never happen - no way in hell will we invite Jon Stewart when we can get someone dull or uninteresting like the CEO of GE. Because while the CEO may suck as a speaker and have nothing to offer commencement to make it more interesting, gosh darn it! He went to Dartmouth and if nothing else, the Ivies are the places where you sit around and congratulate yourself on how wonderful you are and how much you have accomplished as a class of people. But, in any case, I just discovered the text of Jon Stewart's commencement address from last year at William & Mary, and thought you might enjoy it.... (you being one of the four people who check this blog. Happy Belated Bday, Marlene!)

Jon Stewart Commencement Address

p.s. marlene, if you're reading this, Angeles asked me to have you delete that photo of us in our Halloween costumes I sent you last night. I promise there'll be others to replace it - but you have to admit, we look pretty gross in it.

they came!

Our Halloween costumes came in the mail today and mine is NOT as whorish as I thought it was going to be. Because of that, I'm posting the online model pic, but keep in mind this gal's legs are MUUUUCH longer than mine, and so the skirt actually comes down to me knees.

Oh, and poor angeles, while mine was infinitely less whorish in real life, hers was infinitely more!!! It doesn't even come down past her hoo-ha. Although if and when she wears it with pants, it'll probably be cuter than mine.


Oh, and we decided to throw Elissa's bridal shower over Thanksgiving when I'm in town - it's going to be the BEST trip and the BEST thanksgiving ever! I can hardly wait!!!

(I love the Oct/Nov/Dec holiday sweep!)

I bought a ticket home for Thanksgiving today. WOOHOO!!!!!!

and in other news, i had a bad hang over this morning and had to clean out my trashcan from getting sick last night, but it was SOOOO worth it - my pong partner and i won!!!! (okay, so we only won one game out of three, but that's cuz the second two games we were playing against people who played with water, and since we only lost by half a cup, we might as well have won).

and angeles and i ordered halloween costumes....... late one night, when we were procastinating...... and it turns out that we should NEVER EVER order costumes on no sleep. I think i might have possibly ordered the sluttiest strawberry shortcake costume ever!!! It doesn't help that the site was a damn lingerie site too! (which i didn't realize when ordering) I have a feeling this costume will never get worn...

Homecoming Pix

Homecoming 2005, Part Deux

So, any of you who saw yesterday's post know I was in a really REALLY depressed mood when I woke up. I took the post down cuz my day picked up a TON from there and because no one ever likes to be reminded of the days when they were depressed.

That's not to say this weekend didn't have a shitty, shitty start, but I'm lucky enough that my friends don't hate me when I get in my funks and always seem to pull me out of em. Brunch w/ Marlene and Tommy was really nice yesterday (MARLO, come back to us!!!! ;>), Mike came over yesterday afternoon and I feel much better about our friendship again and I actually had a lot of fun (ESPECIALLY when Liz busted in the room with a "WHERE'S MY TURKEY?!?!" obviously hoping to interrupt something - I don't know what was funnier... her disappointment that she didn't interrupt anything or her embarassment when she realized Mike *had* brought turkey), and last night after Mike left, Angeles, Liz, and I spent the whole night doing minimal amounts of work and maximum amounts of giggling. I always forget how the three of us will find absolutely nothing and everything at the same time hilarious for no reason other than we need to laugh.

I finished a draft of my personal statement! I'm SOOOO relieved! It's not that great, but it's done. I feel like a HUGE weight has been lifted.

and in other news, I ran into nik tonight and made a comment about how excited I was to haze the freshmen this year. he got all condascending and was like, "it's not cool to force people to drink and then do shit. we were going to talk to all the captains after the meeting on sunday, but you aren't allowed to do that this year."

i'm so fucking annoyed. and then he actually had the audacity to say, "besides, hazing is against college policy." because NOTHING mock trial does is EVER against college policy - and certainly nothing like using COSO money to buy booze!!!!

i never thought i would come across an officer board i hated more than last year's. i swear to god, if i get into a decent law school by christmas, i'm not doing mock trial this winter. no f'in way.

Life is Grand.

Today has been a wonderfully chill day. Nothing really happened, I don't really have any work right now, no major drama, no mock trial to deal with yet, nothing, really. So maybe I should be more productive like this woman:

I've got it!!! My theme for my personal statement! In trying to give my resume one overarching theme or describing characteristic, I came up with Empowerment. That's the one thing that ties Argentina to America Reads to the Day Care. So I'm going to write my personal statment on that.....or I need to anyway......I will......eventually......but for now I'm still procrastinating by writing a blog about what I need to be writing an essay on. How's that for wasting time?

There are certain things that are ALWAYS unacceptable

And listening to a professor speak to you about the pooping habits of his children is one of them. No more babysitting for prof's. Period.

Speaking of the cool kid

My favorite picture of Senior Year so far.

How many hours till the weekend?

It's so close. I know it's coming. I know that it's only a matter of hours, minutes and then I'll be free. But I'm having suuuuch a hard time reminding myself that. I didn't sleep last night cuz of work and Kristina visiting, and I had to get up early for work at Rocky, so that could probably have something to do with the clock moving in funny directions now. I swear, I left work an hour early cuz I wasn't paying attention, and then had to come back when I realized I wasn't supposed to have left in the first place. I'm so out of it.

Other than my spaciness, today I feel determined. Why do I feel determined? I don't know. Determined to do what? I don't know. Will determination lead to productivity? I don't know. But determination is definitely the mood of the day. Probably a good thing since I have a presentation to prepare and a law school personal statement to write this weekend. Maybe I'm just determined to be the coolest damn Bagel I can be. I should wear sunglasses all day today to remind myself of that. Cuz, you know, the sun always shines on the cool kid.

Quick Update

Not much new here. Angeles and I went to a Vanessa Carlton concert on Tuesday, and while in general, I'm not even that big of a fan, the concert was really really good. First off, it was only an hour and a half, which I appreciated cuz I was tired and had a lot of work - more like a study break than a real concert. Second, the turnout was horrible - again, I also appreciated that because without a doubt, small concerts are more intimate, fun, and enjoyable for me. Third, she's a really amazing performer. She accompanies herself the entire time on piano and she's really amusing to listen to ramble on. So even though both Angeles and I didn't really want to go before the concert started, I'm really glad I did.

Also, I asked a professor yesterday to write a recommendation for me for law school. He wants my resume - no big deal, it needs a few changes, but that'll take five minutes. He also wants my personal when he asks for this nonexistent statement, do i tell him the truth? It doesn't exist? It might never exist? I can't imagine how I'm ever going to write the damn thing? NOPE! of course not! that would be the smart, upfront, authentic, honest thing to do!

Instead, I tell him I'm just finishing it, it's in the editing stage now, he'll have it by Monday. And even while the words were coming out of my mouth, I was already regretting it. My mouth wouldn't shut up while my brain screamed "FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK! WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT DAMN MOUTH THINK IT'S DOING TO ME?!?!?!" Currently my brain and mouth still aren't on speaking terms. It's very intense from the neck on up right about now. Peace keeping troops have been called in. I'll let you know how it goes.

People smile more in the mornings.

Ever notice how early in the morning people smile more? It doesn't last all morning, cuz by nine or ten, you have your "grumblers" (i.e. people like Julie ;>) up and they don't smile so much as shoot daggers at everyone and anyone with their eyes. But next time you are out and about around 7 or 8, watch for it. I promise you that if you look around, you'll find more people smiling than you find at any other time of day.

This was how I knew today is going to be a good day - cuz everyone seemed to smile more when I went to work this morning. Then I got my computer back, HOORAY! and since then, I've been holed up in my room praising my lovely, lovely Mac.

Today is going to be a great day.

if there are two things i hate


1. When people are mad at me and I feel like there's nothing I can do to change it. I tend to have huge anxiety problems anyway when people are mad at me, but if there's nothing I can do to rectify the situation, I'm prone to be *very* emotional.....

2. being sick. especially with either cramps or a head cold.

what do these two things have in common? not much, except that i have to deal with both right now, and all i want to do is crawl into bed and cry.


They're done. They didn't go amazingly well, but they weren't too horrible either. I guess we'll know in 3 weeks. In the meantime I discovered that after all of last weekend's drinking, the thought of alcohol frankly grosses me out, so I'm home alone doing work. I'm a wet blanket, I know. At least I have pictures from last weekend to remind me that every once in a while, I'm not quite so dull.

Happy LSAT day.... :(

First order of business this morning?


Second order of business this morning?

Drinking so much I can't even remember what LSAT stands for.
