taste of my own medicine [08 Jun 2009|10:36pm]
i'm a little worried.
my boyfriend of almost 6 years is going on tour for almost 3 weeks in august.
i haven't exactly been kind to a particular rock star girlfriend in my public-forum comments.
i'm wondering- is the same gonna happen to me?

will i be the target of public criticism?
how will i handle it if i am?

anyways, haven't updated in forever.
don't know why but i feel most comfortable expressing these thoughts on livejournal than any other outlet.

[ mood | bored ]

i never thought i'd be a typical 23 year old college graduate. but here i am, living at home, not yet pursuing my career, with desire to travel all over the world, with fear of commitment, with little money saved, trying to hit the gym and eat healthy, missing drunk weekdays, going to random shows, listening to new music, trying to read books for fun, wasting time away thinking and not much else.

i thought i had built a road for myself that would lead me somewhere different than where i'm at. i guess my construction skills need sharpening, or maybe the road's just a lot longer than i thought and i'm tired of building.

let's think of this as a little break from being a construction worker. i'm just on my lunch break.

This is me now [18 Apr 2007|12:22am]
I'm graduating in exactly one month and one day.
From college, let me make that clear.
Because, my god, I feel incredibly young to be doing this. To be done with school forever!
Maybe grad school? MAYBE!
Everything about me screams young! I still live at home and try to have dinner with my family every night. I only work 2 days a week. Most of my friends are younger than me. I just started to have a consistent party nightlife in the last year since turning 21.
I'm just young at heart, I guess.

I just can't fucken believe it. I'm graduating from San Diego State University.

If only July 1989 could see me now!

I'm surrounded by love, great music and lots of wonderful things to do with my time. I write, I write oh and I write some more. I'm part of MEChA and in charge of organizing a new afterschool program at a local middle school and I make coffee for people at SDSU two days a week. I listen to Modest Mouse, Kings of Leon and Rage Agasint the Machine whenver I can. Adam makes me smile, even in text messages. When I nestle into his arms on some nights, I honestly can't beleive my great fortune.

I'm graduating from college. Wow. Time is unforgiving isn't it?

Flashback [21 Jun 2006|05:13pm]
Today was the first day of classes at City College. Guess who I saw there? Enrique, my ex-soul mate/obession.

My 17-year-old self is very happy. She really would've loved to see him there oh about...4 years ago.

Wow. I was truly crazy about that guy. How times have changed.

He's still cute but you know...just the usual cuteness...

It's funny. I'm amused

summer thoughts [06 Jun 2006|01:09pm]
[ mood | weird ]

so. i saw the arctic monkeys at soma on friday night. i got in for free, my cousins paid for my ticket and i don't really know their music. i really only knew that one line "i bet you look good on the dance floor...something something...1984" haha!

but i went and saw them and enjoyed the hot, sweaty show nonetheless. they are really good live. i'm not saying i'm gonna be like a number one fan now but i am listening to more of their songs.

then i was looking at their myspace profile and how many many fans wish the Arctic Monkeys played at their city. And i saw them live and didn't even know the songs. i feel a little ashamed. honestly, i just went so i could see what all the fuss was about.

which makes me think of all the othe things i'm doing that people wish to be doing right now. i have to learn the songs for all the good shows. so that i can sing along.

i want to sing along.

so over it [26 Mar 2006|10:02am]
i'm pretty fed up with livejournal. i rarely check it and i don't get inspired to update much anymore.

right now i guess i'm pretty fucken pissed off that i couldn't go to the huge protest yesterday in LA.

it was against the bill hr 4437, which seeks to make all these laws about undocumented workers. it's ridiculous.

anyways, i didn't go because i had to work at stupid macy's. i could've tried to get the day off but i had 7 days off last week for spring break in which adam and i went to LA to visit my aunt and cousins.

i wish i could've gone to this protest, it was historic.

the only good news is that adam went in my place :)

i hate having to work weekends.

but see, i'm not inspired to write much more in this here livejournal. it kinda sux.

And they call it puppy love [28 Feb 2006|02:47pm]

Number of girls who have a crush on my boyfriend: 2

Amount of amusement in my body: more than I can explain.

So, I guess these girls are asking each other advice about what to do with their crush on Adam because (obviously) he has a girlfriend.

It's weird because I had never experienced being on the other end of this situation. I was always the one who had crushes on guys who were taken.

I know I get to keep him. It feels almost too good to know that I win! Hee hee :)

L.A. weekend-sun, celebrites and lots of luxury [12 Jan 2006|09:49am]
These past few days have been so relaxing and peaceful. My life is so up and down, never steadily busy.

Like this past weekend. Adam and I drove up to LA for a press junket for the movies "Glory Road" and "Annapolis". In a press junket, a bunch of reporters from all over the world get to pre-view the movie and then sit at a press conference kinda thing with the key actors and directors/producers ect. So, "Glory Road" was pretty freakin good. It's the one about the black basketball players back in the sixties in a Texas college team and the coach who put them as starters at the time of extreme racism. It was very uplifting and all that. "Annapolis" on the other hand, was a little less cool. Tyrese, well let's just say he should stick to singing.

Anyways, the weekend itself was amazing fun for Adam and I. We visited my aunt before heading to the hotel where we stayed: the Hyatt Regency Plaza right next to Beverly Hills! The room was wow! super luxurious and comfy. The bed alone! God, I could've stayed in that bed all weekend! Plus Disney (the junket hosts) paid for $250 dollars worth of room service and gift shop purchaces!:) On saturday nite we went to watch the movies at some mall close by. Not only did they give us (all the journalists and their guests) a catered dinner but they gave us free popcorn and drinks for every movie so Adam and I were stuffed by the end of the nite! Then they drove us back to the hotel room where Adam and I went to bed...wink wink ;)

So, on Sunday morning I was both excited and nervous for the day ahead because I was going to talk to people like James Franco, Josh Lucas, Jerry freakin-Bruckheimer, Jordana Brewster and more! I had no idea what I was gonna ask so I didn't sit in the front row, I scooted a little behind another reporter who seemed to know her stuff very well. Here's the thing: I think I was the only college press person there! Everyone was a lot older than me and they have interviewed celebrities in the sleep! I overheard alot of conversations about Mel Gibson, Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp, Heath Leadger, Cameron Diaz, and Sarah Jessica Parker interviews! I was still a little star struck and it took me a few minutes into each press conference to get used to the fact that people like Tyrese would be sittin right in front of me! (Although, I don't mean to brag or anything but Tyrese's hotel room was right across the hall from mine and Adam bumped into him that morning!!!! AHHHH!!) see how star struck I am...I can't handle this...

Well I did, I asked a couple of questions but for the most part just sat back and learned, alot! It was a great experience and I can't wait to do it again!

So, right after the press conference, Adam and I hurried home to try to not get to Macy's too late because we had inventory that nite! My managers have such a power over me that I get terrified to face them when I do something "wrong". I was more nervous than when I was gonna interview celebrities or take a final exam! The whole way to SD I was shakin in my boots because I was 3 hours late! I'm not making up excuses beacause my tardy couldn't have been avoided. I was doing something very important to me and that was that. I did the best I could with the time that I had, that's what I would tell them.

Well, as I imagined, my counter manager didn't talk to me all nite. We avoided each other and when she did see me, she looked the other way. My manager was a bit nicer, upset but courdeous. I can't imagine what they will do to me, maybe give me a written warning but that nite, everything worked out fine. I scanned things and got the job done, so there.

And now here I am. I survived my first press junket! Of course, since I want to make a career out of this, I want to be good at it. And I think I'm on my way to being good. At least I'm a lot better at writing than I am at working retail. That will always be a releif...

here's me and josh lucas: am i the new salma hayek? you'll never know!

With Al Sheare from Punk'd and Glory Road!
