The Final Countdown

I think I figured out my school scenario. I've always wanted to live in Washington, so I'll transfer there for my junior and senior year. I had actually planned to before school even started, but now I'm doin' it fo sho. I just hate school right now, and I really need a change. The only joy I seem to be getting from it is when people ask "how do you like Westminster?" and I say "eh" and put an apathetic look on my face. So much for believing college holds the best years of life.

But aside from school, everything else is going really well. Exceptionally well. Incredible really. The only thing that I would have changed these past weeks is that Kristen Stewart got cast as Bella in the Twilight movie. Not because I am incredibly jealous (because let's face it, EVERYONE wants to be Bella), but because she's a terrible actress. Bleh I just don't think she's good. At all. In the words of my mother, "That's alright, they're terrible books. She should be fine." My mother is obviously crazy.

I was house sitting last week, it was so nice to have a whole house to myself! So THAT'S what it feels like to not live at home...

OH and I've noticed there are more Thanksgiving references and sales AFTER the actual holiday. But it seems Christmas has officially begun. Do you remember a time when Christmas started like, a week or two after December started? I miss the good ol' days.

Ah, the good ol' days.

Song du Jour

If someone were to ask me to make a list of my top 10 favorite songs, it would be impossible. But this song is definitely in my top 5.

Wonderwall by Oasis

Today is gonna be the day
That they're gonna give it back to you
By now you should've somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now

Backbeat the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I'm sure you've heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don't believe that anybody feels
The way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead the way are blinding
There are many things that I would
Like to say to you
I don't know how

I said maybe
You're gonna be the one who saves me
And after all
You're my wonderwall

Today was gonna be the day
That they'll never bring it back to you
By now you should've somehow
Realized what you're got to do
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead the way are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you
But I don't know how

Said maybe
You're gonna be the one that saves me
You're gonna be the one that saves me
And after all
You're my wonderwall
You're my wonderwall
You're my wonderwall
You're my wonderwall

Hair Question

Do I keep this brown hair I've got now, or should I switch to a honey-ish blonde that's dark underneath?

I need opinions...

A Quick Update

It's been over a week since I began this vegetarian lifestyle. The only slip up I had was I ate a caesar salad on the first day (for those who don't know, caesar dressing is made with anchovy extract). But, it's been really good. I was struggling a bit at first because we have SO MUCH MEAT in this house, but my mom bought a lot of vegetarian friendly foods for me and I'm very grateful for that! I've been thinking about all the food I'll miss. Bacon. Cafe Rio pork. ...that's about all I can think of for now. So, I guess that's all I'll really miss.

I cannot believe, however, that my life is going the way it is. I finally feel like I know who I am. It was maybe six months of solitary confinement that led me to discover myself. It was difficult no doubt, but I'm recieving exceptional karmic rewards.

A quick shoutout to my ShawneePants, for I love her dearly!!! Keep it real, homegirl!

Writer's Strike

  • Hollywood's film and television writers went on strike early this morning after last-ditch efforts to negotiate a deal with the major studios failed Sunday.
  • Both sides are girding for what many believe will be a long and debilitating strike, potentially more disruptive than the 22-week walkout by writers in 1988, which cost the entertainment industry an estimated $500 million.
  • Even as negotiators were hunkered down behind closed doors, strike captains were sending e-mail notices to guild members and guild directors, informing them where to show up today on the picket lines.
  • Earlier in the day, writers at the guild's West Coast headquarters in the Fairfax district had loaded their picket signs onto trucks.
  • The union had organized a network of 300 strike captains who were ready to stage daily pickets at all the major studios, including Disney and Warner Bros. as well as CBS Television City and NBC headquarters in Burbank.
  • "When we asked if they would stop the clock for the purpose of delaying the strike to allow negotiations to continue, they refused," Counter said.
  • Several TV studios have reminded employees that they have the option to resign from the guild and still work. "We're not concerned about our members going fi-core," said Jeff Hermanson, assistant executive director for the Writers Guild of America, West. He added that only a handful of members have financial core status today.

Well that's dumb.

I'm annoyed for reasons I'm not even about to get into on here. I won't get into them on my Myspace either so you'll just know that I'm annoyed and I just wish people weren't so mean and dumb.

But onto lighter notes!

Today I did some work at IHC for my temp job and the ZCMI mall is under all sorts of construction so I had to find a new way to get to the office. When I was crossing main street I felt like Marlo Thomas in That Girl. You ever watch that show? Well--THERE'S A SPIDER ON THE FLOOR!!!--it was just kind of fun exploring downtown. Well, the one street I was

Day 2 of Mission: Vegetarian went very well. I'm actually not feeling too well right now'll wear off. I'm really enjoying this new diet. AND I've recently become addicted to coffee. There's this coffee shop in Sugarhouse, Dolce Coffee, I recommend it to anyone who enjoys java. Mmm.

Final note: has anyone seen my parents? I haven't seen them in like, 2 days haha.
