I dunno what's with my dreams lately but it's nuts. I dreamt that a certain person who hates me and most likely would like to see me dead came to me John and Ally while we were hanging out and decided she wants to be my roommate at Chatham. It was so weird! I dunno why but every dream I have with her in it, she's always flirting with John! Weird!
P.S. I dyed my hair strawberry blonde

So this weekend was alright. KB Toys is great and I love my job. I hate Sofia Coppola though. Seriously. Marie Antionette was awful. Completely awful. Oh such symbolism in barely any speech! Way to fuck shit up. The reception was great. My cousin's son, who is 18 months old, was attached to my leg so I got a babysitting job offer but their 4 year old daughter is a spoiled brat. But whatever. So basically I have school and work now. KB Toys really is great though.

The Prestige was excellent. Just when you think movies are awful and have awful story lines, The Prestige comes along. Speaking of awful movies, showing on my television at this moment is Children of the Corn. The redhead looks a lot like Shawn White. It's probably been said before but I'll say it again. I'm hopefully gonna see Marie Antionette this Friday with Abbey. I have plans to completely tear it apart. Just because Lost in Translation was good doesn't mean that she'll do a good job with Marie Antionette. I work at KB Toys this weekend so people should visit. 30% discount mos def. KB Toys will be better than LC fo sho.

So I haven't updated forever. Deal with it bitches. I don't have an exciting life. I'm most likely getting a seasonal job at KB Toys 'cause I need extra money. This job on campus is bullshit 'cause the kid is always claiming he doesn't need help. I only work with Tommy every so often 'cause his boss claims they don't need help either. This weekend I'm seeing The Prestige and Marie Antionette. Sneaking into one of the movies. So I'm in Jen's group for Theatre and we called a truce. We'll see how that goes. I dunno. I don't have a problem with her. Not like the one she has with me. Oh well. This weekend won't be horrible 'cause I'm not working and my mom is buying me clothes ^.^ I'll probably hang out with John tonight. Go to ENP most likely. It'll be nice to see my friends. And my kitty who's recovering from his castration. He's probably getting faaaaaaaat 'cause he LOVES chocolate. Haha I am sooo lame. I think I'll bring my wig into town with me 'cause it's exciting. We watched the video in Psych today about the baby monkeys being attached to fake mothers. IT WAS STILL ADORABLE. I love nostalgia from Psych. Makes me miss Sigmund. And all my friends. I have to go watch a video about the Tasaday at three and then leave for Erie. Hoorah. Call my cell if you wanna hang.

10 reasons why gay marriage is wrong
1) Being gay is not natural. Real people always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.
2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.
3) Legalising gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behaviour. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.
4) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.
5) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britney Spears's 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.
6) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.
7) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.
8) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in the western world.
9) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.
10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.
Repost this in your journal if you are for gay marriage.

So Natalie and I stayed up nearly all night last night. Only slept from like 7:30-9:30. We just couldn't fucking get to sleep. It was insane. One good thing came out of it. I finished my Civ paper so I didn't have to work on it today. I barely made it to Psych today since I woke up late since I never set an alarm. I booked it and it was raining so my stupid pants are soaked now. Theatre was so completely ridiculous. We had a sub again and it was just hell. I came back and took a nap for about two hours. I forgot to go print out my paper but I'll get it tomorrow before class. TOMORROW IS THE DUEL!

We have no classes tomorrow. Which means I should finish my book report and study for my midterm. Whatevs. I'm tired but not. I skipped Psych again because I just couldn't get up this morning. Probably won't be great when I start my 7AM-9AM job. Bleh. But I need the money so whatevs. Natalie's flipping about some boy she likes again. This time it started getting a little intense. She's staging a minor sit-in tomorrow if he doesn't call by 2:30 tonight. God I'm just bored. I don't even know why I updated.

So in the past day, I got three job offers. I turned one down. So Monday-Thursday I'm gonna be a homework helper out for this kid James. I dunno what the hours are gonna be but it doesn't matter 'cause on Fridays I'm working with Tommy for 8 hours for $8 and altogether, that's a decent amount of cash I believe. I'm pretty good on my schoolwork. I have my book report half-finished so that's okay by me. Not much going on next week especially since we don't have classes on Tuesday. I begin my job next Monday so that won't be bad. After how bad I sucked with the Anthro test, I now know that I have to study like hell. That's what's good about having four tests in a semester. I can eff up one test but then do well after that. I'm not too worried. I think I have theatre class tomorrow but that's alright. After class I have to go get my time card and figure out some more stuff with payroll. Then I'm going home to sleep since I'm going with Tommy to work. Lovely. I didn't wanna tell my mom about either job so then I could keep milking money from her but whatevs. I knew she would figure shit out sooner or later. I didn't tell her about the job with Tommy because that's an easy like $60 a week. Makes me happy. My roommate is pretty hilarious. I wanna see Marie Antionette on the 20th just to see how accurate it is. I used to have this idolized idea of her, some great queen who was wonderful to her people and was unjustly killed. In all actuality, she was just a beauty who only desired clothes and actually began to be a great queen when it mattered least: days before her execution. I dunno. I'm a fucking weirdo like that. Grey's Anatomy was fantastic this week. So was Gilmore Girls. I only watch two shows now so that makes me happy. Don't have to focus on shit so much. Psych won't be bad and hopefully we're gonna do something interesting in Theatre. Bleh. I have a headache. Oh well. I'm still happy ^.^

Sex&The City is a real good show, the episodes show why you should never cheat on people. It always makes me cry watching that episode. Anyways, I have another headache. Maybe I need to eat better? Who knows. I need to get my ass started on my paper but I dunno what to write. I probably failed my Anthro test 'cause I was so frustrated by it. I have to call Pizza Hut tomorrow to see if I can work there ASAP. Blah, I'm just kinda getting frustrated by everything right now. All in all, I can't wait for next semester to start so I can be away from Erie and be able to fully concentrate on school. It's not like I'm distracted by Erie but I won't have to worry about having money for every weekend. I will be away from home for real. I think I'm just thinking ahead because it's midterms and everything is coming up so quick and everything. I really shouldn't worry. I dunno! I'm so confused and blah. I need to settle and just figure crap out. I think I wrote the same entry yesterday. I just feel worse today.
