Hana, I bought a shirt at wet seal the other day and I thought of you. It says: I was going to conquer the world but I got distracted by something sparkly. :)

mood: drained
I'm not a stupid person.
I dumped him after he cheated on me for the second time today.
I should've done it when I caught him the first time.
Shame on me.
You would think God and conscience would catch up to him...
I have faith that at least God will.
But I'm not a stupid person,
I've moved on.
I am, therefore, needing to inform you all that
I am changing my username.
I'll let you know when I think of it.
Lots of Love

P.S. I'm sorry I won't be seeing you this Christmas, but I'll be there in spirit. I miss you all very much.

mood: cynical
I'm watching Duplex right now... very disturbing. For some reason, we're getting a pay-per view channel for free all day and they're playing it over and over and over...

I took the California Asset today to qualify for a math transfer to a CSU. If I pass I don't need to blow my money on a prerequisite course. Very stressful! To cool off, Mom, Trav and I are going to Marine World again tomorrow.

I miss everyone very much. I work twice as hard and twice as long as I did at my last job but I'm still not making as much money as a did, and my boss makes me crazy. She owns the shop and schedules one person at a time to work an eight hour shift at a time so I don't get breaks or lunches. I don't think that's legal and It's very frustrating. So I quit and now I'm looking around again. Now I can't afford to to fly out to DC. Very sad. No Shmoo Shmoo for me. :( I wish I could just come home for awhile and relax.

Please write encouraging words to me.

Much Love

Crispy isn't the only self-loathing individual around here.
I went through the dreaded freshman orientation today. Good news: I don't have to take English because I rocked two AP English courses - that knocks out six credits/two semesters baby!- AND because I took math all through high school I may not have to take anymore... maybe only one... Bad news: My schedule is all screwed up and my counselor is some kind of hippie. He kept saying "Ya dig?", as in 'do you understand"?. Very strange. I am still very sunburned. My interview with Pier 1 was lame; I waited for twenty minutes after my scheduled interview before they called me in and asked me role-playing questions. :( Lame Lame Lame.

Marine World Africa USA!   
07:31pm 19/07/2004
 
mood: pleased
Did you know that Marine World Africa USA is now Six Flags Marine World? That's lame. The ride update is definitely an improvement though. They had a 3D Stargate SG1 ride -I thought of you Hana- and some very good water stuff. I went there today with the family today and I got a Henna tattoo of a gecko... Fun Fun. I am very sunburned. Maybe I'll post a picture... We bought season passes and I think we're going again on Wednesday, that is only if I don't have to work because my interview with Pier 1 tomorrow is wonderful and I can be rid of my current employment obligations. Lets cross our fingers! In preparation for my interview I got my eyebrows waxed as well. Those tricky salon ladies weaseled me into a pedicure for tomorrow afternoon too... they're very sneaky. Will update soon.

Lots of Love,

Jamba Juice!   
06:37pm 18/07/2004
 
mood: bouncy
Have you guys ever heard of Jamba Juice? It's the best kind of smoothie I have ever had. Dustin says they had them in Hawaii... I had never heard of it before, but a friend from work introduced me and now I'm hooked! Very, very good. Kira + Jamba Juice Forever. :) They also have Haagan Dazs booths. Yum Yum Yum.

P.S. Jessica Simpson should learn to write her own music. I'm growing very tired of hearing her awful cover songs.

mood: thankful
I was being retarded earlier, venting about stupid stuff. Wanted to let everyone know that Dust and I are fine. We just had some weird issues, but we're together and well. He's a jerk sometimes... but I'm a jerk right now. That's it.

Lots of Love

Feeling different.   
01:14pm 11/07/2004
 
mood: contemplative
I'm finally getting around to unpacking my boxes. I really don't want to, but there are so many piling up and it occurred to me this morning that gravity could allow them to topple over. And so the unpacking begins, but only to re-pack and re-organize for the move in the winter.

My boss -who is oddly reminiscent of Mrs. Levenseller- is crazy but my co-workers are cool. I'm enjoying my new job at The Last Straw. They have my hauling the heaviest stuff ever, I'm hoping it'll help me get rid of the extra poundage gained from eating just fast food for about a month.

So now I have a library card, a job, a bank account, and some unpacked boxes... and I guess that means I'm settling in. I'm starting over. No more sad stuff because I've got money and school, a car, a pool and the whole world ahead of me. Guys who dump you with a message on your answering machine are not worth the tears. Sound advice: Listen to your friends when they tell you your significant other is a jerk.

I got the job!

mood: jubilant
Yay for me! I haven't even turned in any applications yet. I just came into a store with the sign in the window when they didn't have any copies of their applications, so I left my number. We did an interview yesterday and they called this morning to tell me I work tomorrow. :) Yay for me! I am now employed. I am a money-making, productive cizen of Placer County California. :)

I must get back to unpacking my household goods.
Much Love. Much Sunshine.

P.S. It's our 1 year + 7month anniversery today... Yay for Dustin and I too. :)

I saw Spiderman II as well   
10:45pm 06/07/2004
 
mood: giggly
Spiderman two is the bomb. 'nuff said. The first one sucked, the second was good. Everyone who doesn't see it is a loser.

OUR STUFF CAME TODAY! Such a good thing. It took three hours for the guys to bring it all in, I haven't checked to see if anything was broken yet and there are boxes from floor to ceiling so we can really move around... but it's great. I love reclineing leather chairs and big screen TVs and pitures of my boyfriend. :) I'm such a man right now. Someone should teach me how to play poker, seriously.

My job interview was great. It was for a novelty shop. I found out that they change for each holiday. The do a whole Halloween theme for the store and all its merch. (I get to dress up in a costume!) in October and turn into a Christmas shop after Thanksgiving complete with trees and lights and stuff. Very cool. So my element. I'd be taking quite the paycut, but hopefully it'll change up quickly.

Much Love.

My 4th of July Weekend   
07:22am 06/07/2004
 
mood: awake
craziness.
I ate out a lot (T.G.I. Fridays, Carrows, The Cantina, Quiznos twice...) because we still do not have cooking utensils. Dad got tired of it, so he went out and bought a grill. I'll probably need a laxative from all of the extra protein... Our stuff is tentatively scheduled to come today *cross you fingers*

Yesterday the weather was 105 degrees and the day before was 97. I went swimming because I have a pool in my backyard. :)

I did the fireworks thing with my family. You couldn't actually calling it 'doing', so much as watching, I guess. The only thing they let you light off here are those wussy bees and fountains. I suppose one stray spark could set the whole state on fire, but I still think it sucks. Their display (in the capitol city no less!) was very sad. I've lit off better things in my backyard. California's pyrotechnics are very lame compared to Washington's. I ADORE [controlled]fires and fireworks, but this has made me very sad. Next year I think I'll go to Disneyland and watch the lazer-light show instead.

I [FINALLY] talked to my shmoo yesterday after a few weeks of his phone being broken. It was in and out of the shop and he's working so hard in drill team... very stressed. I forgot how much I missed him for awhile. Silly me, I love him very much. It's been three months since I saw him last, and his training goes on through the summer... we're working toward Christmas, but let's pray it happens sooner. For instance, I turn 18 in October, that would be nice... He's going through one of those 'I have to be an adult now and put away all of the cool and fun things about me that I did/liked in high school because I'm in the Army now' phases. I think the development has made him feel very inadequate (not at all like Dustin). I'm trying to figure out how to cheer him up. He said he doesn't want anyone to come out because he's embarrassed of the way he live and the people he's associated with...

I have my first job interview today. wish me luck and avoidance of an ugly hat with with my uniform.

Much love. *kira

This might be a silly question...
Please be patient with me, I'm new...
How do you get the mood icons to come up on a post...?

Nevermind, just found it! Yay for me. :) This is just a test then...

I think California has more pollen issues than Washington did... I am SO sick right now...

Finally some good news to share.   
06:20pm 03/07/2004
  People of the Life Journal site, a good things have happened to me today.

The first good thing I would like to share:

I had brunch at the coolest place ever! It's called Java Garden, a family owned diner. It's totally old, though refurbished -wonky spelling-, in Oldtown Roseville. The whole town is decorated with roses! Roses painted on building walls and doors, rose bushes... everthing was covered by a spanish community/ rose themed mural. Very cool. It had old restaurants and an old movie theatre, little music shops and boutiques, clubs... a classy version of downtown Bremerton (by the ferry docks). I kept expecting to see the water, but sadly, Sacramento is quite aways away from the ocean. :( It was very cool though, reminded me of home. :)

Cool thing #2:

My parents surprised my brother and I with brand new beds! I haven't had a new mattress since I was about... three or four, and we've been sleeping on some very bad quality air beds for roughly two weeks. It was definitely time for something new, but with the move and everything money's a little tight... you know the drill. But nonetheless: NEW, FLUFFY, PILLOW-TOPPED MATTRESSES FOR ME! :) Rejoice.

Just wanted to share my sunshine with ya'll.

Lots of Love

My first LJ entry   
10:31am 03/07/2004
  Hello everyone.
I'm about to go out for brunch. Doesn't that sound snotty? The majority of the people are like that here. I don't know why they don't just admit that it's breakfast for lazy people; the ones who can't quite make it to breakfast at a reasonable time, but still want breakfast food... craziness. I am not one of those people, I'm just eating with them. I'm starving all the time because everyone is lounging instead of feeding me and I don't know how to get around yet.
I cannot wait until our furniture is here.

To Chris: I joined LJ for YOU, it just took me awhile.

To KAH: Hi! Thanks for putting me on your list.

To Hanna: I can't beleive you didn't know it was me. Who else would have this screen name?!

To Shere: Your e-mails are keeping me sane. I thank God for laptops and you. :)

Much love to all of you, Miss you much, Hope to hear from you soon.
Always,
*kira
