I can't wait for Christmas... ahhhh!


I'm listening to "Wonderful Christmas Time" right now... :)

I cannot wait. I love everything about Christmas. And hopefully, we will see snow this year.

I'm currently at the UB office, working on the UB website. They want me to work/volunteer for them on a regular basis, so I'm happy about that. I asked Jen about colleges, and if I could use my essay again, and she agreed, so I'm happy about that. And she also suggested that I apply to Yale. Um, yeah. She thinks I'm Yale material. I'm happy that they think so high of me, but I'm not sure. But I better get back to the website, and see if it worked.

P.S. I remembered I have all my Tufts supplements that I can use for the Conn College and Yale ones. Yes! One less thing I have to write/worry about.

What Do You Have To Say? - Fashion: On The Set

Which movies have the best costumes and scene sets?


"Pan's Labryinth" definitely had great costumes and makeup. No doubt it received three Academy Awards fo this.

"So, you burned that bridge..."

I faxed in my withdrawal.

I'm happy :)


Apparently, having BC as an option would have made me more attractive for other colleges. Well, I hated it. And I don't even want it as an option.

Desiderata

This is the most beautiful poem I have ever read. And you probably have read it before. I recently read it for the first time.


Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

I have liberated myself of every single catalog, brochure, letter bearing the name of Boston College. My time at BC was not an enjoyable one, and I don't believe my drawers should be cluttered with such nuisance. Good. Now, if I could only get myself to wake up at 7:30 to go for a run tomorrow morning... hummm.

I start volunteering at the gift shop at Middlesex next week. Hahaha. It should be fun. And I am also going to be volunteering with the American Red Cross with either blood drives or office work. I rather do the blood drives, though. And I am also going to be volunteering for Best Buddies of America. Just talking with people who don't really have anyone to talk to, so that shoul be good. I am to be volunteering. I like volunteering. Even though my mother yells at me for not having a paid job. But I like doing this. But I mean, if I can find I job, I would be glad to take it. I can't wait for Christmas. I love everything about the holidays, and it is just such a happy time. My poor Meggy Meg has a strep throat. I hope she feels better.

I am going to call and withdraw my application from that hellish place.

It's the best thing I can do.


Au revoir.

So.... I saw Mana on Saturday, and it was completely amazing! Amazing, great fabulous, itwas such a kickass concert!!! It started at like 8:30 and it probably ended at arounf 11:00. They played so many songs, not only from "Amar Es Combatir", but also from their old CDs. And Alex playing those drums for like 10 minutes was just grrrrrreat. And Sergio, playing his gitar just beautifully. It was great. BUT, before the concert started, something great happened. This guy came up to Meg and I and asked us if we wanted to join the after-party. WE GOT TICKETS TO MEET MANA BACKSTAGE!!!! I was sooooooo excited. And so, after waiting for them in a room full of girl wearing skimpy clothes and Coronas, we got to meet Segio, Juan, and some of the other background guys. It was so much fun. I didn't get to talk to Juan, cause at the moment I didn't really remember who he was, and I was a little shy. We got an autograph from Hector, some guy who played the bass, I believe. But we did get a picture with Sergio, except it came out really dark, but I fixed it and now it looks alright. But that concert just rocked! And the Portland Fair is tomorrow, so that should be some fun. Fried dough, yummy. Oh, yeah, and I'm possibly seeing Elizabeth: The Golden Age with my mom tomorrow. Ahhh, I had so much at that concert, and I can't get over it. I'm listening to them right now. And I reallly want to see them again. That would be so amazing! They promised to come back to CT, since they said it was their first time here.

And this is the attitude I should have from now on, brought to you by the lovely Mana guys:

Hechale vampiro!!!!!

No me importa lo que
piensa la gente de mi
que si traigo el pelo
de alguna manera
porque me gusta traerlo asi
Que por qué escucho
ese tipo de musica??
si es la que me gusta oir

Critican todo lo que ven en mi
inventan chismes que no son ciertos
Con quien hablo, con quién salgo,
con quién ando,
que te importa? es mi vida
si yo no le hago daño a nadie
quién eres tu para decirme
cómo vivir, quién eres tu?

Me vale lo que piensen,hablen de mi
es mi vida y yo soy asi,simón!!
me vale lo que piensen,hablen de mi
es mi vida y yo soy asi!

Chorus
Porque me vale vale vaale,
me vale todo
Me vale vale vaale,
me vale todo
si no me entienden o comprenden
pues ya ni modo!
porque me vale vale vaale
me vale todo

No puedes criticar algo
sin conocerlo primero
sere muy feo por afuera
pero muy bello por adentro
si eres una de esas personas
te tengo una solución
en vez de estar fregando
y molestandome asi
dedicate a encontrar
que esta mal en ti
por que...

Me vale lo que piensen
hablen de mi, es mi vida
y yo soy asi, simón!
Me vale lo que piensen,
hablen de mi, es mi vida
y yo soy asi por que...

Chorus-repeat

Mientras los reprimidos
andan aburridos
yo no ando, de jodido
no tengo broncas
porque soy yo mismo

Hablen lo que quieran...

qué piensa o murmura la gente de mi?
qué piensan los vecinos de mi?
qué piensan los maestros de mi?
qué piensa la autoridad de mi?
qué piensan mis padres de mi?
qué piensan mis suegros de mi?
qué piensa todo el mundo de mi?
Sólo tengo que decir:
me vaaaaaaaaleeee
me vaaaaaaaleee

ponganse al tanto
porque el mundo gira rapido
ponganse al tiro
o se quedaran atras
