In which I'm astounded... [Aug. 28th, 2007|09:41 pm]

Oh my god... I just read the entries from September 6 and 7 of 2004, and I'm pretty much speechless at what was written, and also the hilarity of the comments on those particular journal entries. It's too funny to think about. I don't know why I'm randomly posting, but it feels good, and I miss it. I hope everyone is having a pleasant night...

My life sucks so badly right now.





This entry is undeserving of a title.




The only good news is that Alberto claims he still loves me, even if he won't hop on a plane and come to my Homecoming dance... :-/

In Which School Is About to Commence... Le Sigh... [Jan. 7th, 2007|10:09 pm]

[music |Without Love - Hairspray]

This is horrible - the best winter break of my life is coming to an end. Le sigh - oh what a respite it was! I did swim some, though it didn't completely take over my break this year. AWESOME. I have a lot of pictures to put in this entry...

So I'm lame; I spent the last day of the break reorganizing my desk and binders so that I could be prepared tomorrow. Yeah, it's not going to be pretty, forcing myself to wake up and go into that morning assembly. Rawr. I have a new elective (philosophy), and I don't know how I feel about it. I mean, I loooove Dr. Gutsell, but I really enjoy my two OC's too, so hmm...

I just talked to Rachael on the phone and we talked about Nice for a while. She told me some things that reminded me of when I was fifteen and HE seemed a lot cooler than HE really is; aka we talked about what I know now as "the Dryland Incident" and "the Olive Garden fiasco." Tee hee. I like to give unimportant things names. Whee...

Pictures!



I have decided I like taxi rides. This one was especially fun, right up there with the taxi ride I took where I was sandwiched between Andie and Alberto in Boston. These are my friends Jill (left) and Lea (right), by the way...



And this was after a hotel dance partay, because, being from Hall 35 and all, it was necessary that we partied hard and jammed out as loudly and obnoxiously as we possibly could.




This is us in Times Square after walking around the whole of NYC; well, at least a lot of it...



So I'm not Spanish, big deal! I'm glad they came all the way from Barcelona to see me, though! :)

That's pretty much it for the NYC pictures. I mean, there's a lot more, but those are just a few. Here's a HILARIOUS picture that Brian put on facebook of us from like 389230580932523 years ago:

I'm second on the wall, in the black bathing suit, behind Kelly. Rogers is behind me, and Brian is behind him. HAHAHA that's hilarious, oh wow...

In Which I'm Obsessed with NYC and musicals... [Dec. 31st, 2006|02:45 pm]

[music |One Day More - Les Miserables]

I will start this entry by reiterating how much I truly love the Broadway musical Wicked. You can't understand... it's so good, oh my god. NYC is pretty hoppin' too. But seriously, go see Wicked. You'll thank me afterwards for telling you to do so!

So obviously New York was awesome. The first day Andie, my mom, and I all just sort of walked around, went to museums, and of course freaked out waiting for Wicked, which was very good. The only problem was that I was sitting next to the worst smelling guy of all time. For real, I've never smelt an odor so horrible in my life! This guy must never bathe or something, because he smelled like dirty cigars and terrible b.o. or something of the sort, so much so that I had to breathe into my scarf! But you can't let even the smelliest man in the world get between you and your Wicked awesome experience. Tee hee - puns.

The second day I spent the entire day with Lea and Jill. ASA HALL 35 FOREVER! Yes indeed, we did have a dance partay. We went to Soho and shopped (good news email chainers - I finally bought all your presents!) and then walked around Rockefeller Center and places like that. It was awesome, and when it was finally time to part, they dropped me off near the theater for Les Miserables, which was so good also. And also, the little boy (Gavroche) was so cute and a lot of the boys in it were pretty hot themselves. I think I might read that book, because the music is beautiful, and the story was pretty good too. Wow, I love Broadway...

The third and final day I spent with Ari, Danae, and their sister, flown in recently from Barcelona, Spain! It was fun, and we mostly did tons of walking and shopping. Aww, it made me especially miss Rachael and Luce. I think for spring break Luce might come to the Bahamas with my family and I, though, which will be awesome. Fun stuff...

One point of caution about having Andie as a bedfellow (which will probably never happen to any of you, but if it does, then heed these words): she punches and jabs in her sleep, and it's especially horrible sharing a single bed with her. Remember that! Anyways, since returning the US, not much exciting has happened. Patrick came by yesterday randomly in his new car and ended up watching The Devil Wears Prada with me for a long time. Will randomly called me last night around 1, which was annoying considering we had stupid swim practice this morning. Sarah got her wisdom teeth out, and we all went over to her house two days ago and chilled there.

Nothing else. Anyways, tonight should be fun. Everybody have a good New Years Eve! Pictures of NYC and probably New Years to come...

In Which Dreams Are Strange... [Dec. 2nd, 2006|12:11 am]
keely17
[mood |pensivepensive]

Dear Monday night's dream:
You were quite strange, I must admit, and it set me to wondering a lot about my life. I don't think I'll divulge all that much, since I still seem to be puzzling it all out, but you were for sure the most realistic dream I've ever had. Especially one part I seem to recall about a serious make-out. Oops, divulsion. I don't know if that's a word; well, it is now...
Yours truly,
A puzzled Keely



Yeah, so basically I've had a lot of strange dreams this past week, Monday's being the most prominent of which. It makes me wonder... I think I've only told Katie and Claire about it, and the three of us were in hysterics and a state of wow-that's-pathetic-but-at-the-same-time-kind-of-possible-and-maybe-rather-endearing type of awe. What would you do without your friends to talk to? I would probably spontaneously combust. I combust, you combust, he, she, we combust... Sorry, inside joke from chemistry last year. Oh Berns...

Anyways, Sarah comes home in about two weeks! That should rule. Also, I'm going to NYC for three days over winter break to see Broadway shows like WICKED and visit friends like Lea, Sam, and Kyle who live there; Jill is coming up from Georgia and is staying with Lea, and Ari and Danae are coming all the way from Spain! Whee - ASA reunion: part 1! Now all we need is my Italian lover and my life partner from Cali. Oh, and of course two Spanish boys and my Greensbororean other half: Ashley. Then we'd be complete.

Also, exams are in less than two weeks, and my confidence in every class is completely shot. Perhaps because I don't understand a single problem on the math homework, everything I say in bio is incorrect (although Mr. Bowman did refer to me as a "Bond girl" the other day because of the way I said James's name, which I found slightly amusing), my French listening and speaking is hopeless, I seem to be illiterate in English, and for APUSH... Well, good thing APUSH is the easiest class ever. There's a group on facebook called "APUSH is so easy it should be called your mom." True that...

So I suppose that tonight I'll have another strange dream, where I lose control of life and somehow end up making out with some random guy whom I know; yes, this has occurred almost every other time, in various forms. As previously stated, Monday was especially intriguing - perhaps because of whom that boy might be! Oh, well that's for me to know, and you to wonder about. I should probs go to bed considering swimming is before daylight breaks tomorrow (wow - poetic or lame?), and I'm slightly sleep-deprived. Je vous adore, mes amours, and j'espere que vous avez une bonne nuit. I don't know if that's right or not. Let's assume it is. :)

In Which I Like... [Nov. 14th, 2006|11:27 pm]

[mood |frustratedfrustrated]

I thought about doing different examples of combinations and permutations, but it seems an entry is in order. I guess I've been quite the lame-tard of late. I don't know. I just went through tons of my old entries and you know what I need to be interesting? A crush on someone; yep, that's what I've discovered I'm missing. I mean, remember when Mike used to be HIM and I could be a spaz and hilarious things would happen when I'd make large social gaffes and still be okay with it? Those were the days.

Here's a quote from an entry two years ago:
"A couple days ago, on Tuesday, I do believe, something that Kelly and I have deamed "The Dryland Incident" occurred. I really can't say more than that, as it is a secret, and secrets should not be told, because if they are told, then they're no longer secret! But anyways, that's all I shall divulge to you all. Just know that it was hilarious and embarassing at the same time, though nobody else probably thought so. I just remember thinking to myself, "Do NOT turn red..."

So after swim practice, Kelly and I chatted and attempted to sort our various issues with the world, which are getting bigger and yet, somehow, funnier and more hilarious. Then I talked to Brian and Caroline and Meghan online, and we began a chat which I can't say very much about, but I will give one hint. FEED HIM! Here's a small "snippet" of the conversation, which takes place between Meghan and Caroline.
Tarheel2468: i didn't even think he was that ugly
cheeZehomefry : until he opens his mouth
Tarheel2468 : AND EATS HER!"

I mean, life was good. Well, sort of... Other than the fact that I was hopelessly in love with a jerk who would never like me back and I was slightly obsessed, life was good. I want to be close with my swimming friends like I used to be. We used to be best friends and now I can't help but feel like I don't belong at swimming. Maybe it's because I'm closer to the email chain than I used to be? I have no clue.

Also, I want to talk about what I like because, well, I feel like it. I like: hot chocolate, cold days, maple leaves, snowflakes, mascara, seeing little red flags of new emails, great swim races, epihpanies, remembering Nice, having spontaneous dance parties, telling stories, flirting, being told how funny I am, walking in the woods, swim team trips, concerts, the email chain, taking pictures, spiced cake, maxie b's, my calculator, the biology corner, the French language, highlighters with just the right amount of juice, talking online, receiving facebook messages, chewy bars, my nicknames, and most of all, my friends. I don't know if this seems lame or whack, because it probably does, but this was so much better than seeing how many permutations are in the word "Pennsylvania." Maybe you enjoyed it too...

In Which Boston Ruled... [Nov. 7th, 2006|08:25 pm]
keely17
[mood |rejuvenatedrejuvenated]

Boston is the most amazing city in the entire world. It'd be so nice to just spend a week there, relaxing and not worrying about anything whatsoever. I mean, I guess three days is pretty nice too...

So we flew up there in the middle of the night... well, practically. We got up at five and then left for the airport. We got to Boston at about 9:00 and commenced to get extremely lost. Did you know there really aren't that many Starbucks up there? They all like Dunkin' Donuts - let me tell you, I am not a fan of Dunkin' Donuts. We ended up getting extremely lost on the way to Rhode Island, where we wanted to visit Brown and the Rhode Island School of Design (for Andie - because I am NOT artistic whatsoever). I mean, we were so hopelessly lost we almost ended up in, like, New Hampshire, or something like that... Finally we got there.

Brown is AMAZING. Like Boston. I mean, let's just say that I wasn't even considering applying to Brown and now I really, really want to go there. Also, their swim team sucks! I mean, I could even swim on it. Well, my best times, not my times right now, since I cannot even swim a little bit right now! Still... It was so pretty and cute and cozy and quaint - there was one street with a lot of cute little shops and tons of restaurants. Want to know something quite funny? My swim coach, Kevin, used to be the swim coach at Brown! Hmmm... that could be a helper.

Anyways, totally awesome. If I do go to Brown, then I really want to take a course in glass-making at the Rhode Island School of Design during my college years. Exciting...

So then we walked around Newbury Street that night. For those of you who have never been to Boston, there are a few main streets that everyone (and I mean everyone) knows. Newbury Street is one of these streets. It is the best shopping street in all of Boston, and the hotel was on the street!! So that was fun, being able to walk around and look at nice clothes and pretty stuff. I must say, absolutely every girl I passed was wearing Uggs and a Burberry scarf. Twas crazy...

So that night we rented STICK IT in the room and watched it. "Dogs are people too you know." It reminded me of when I went to see it with everyone a while back. Fun stuff. Anyways, Sunday was the best day of all time. I GOT TO SEE ALBERTO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean, I love him. I'm not kidding at all. Funniest boy I've ever met in my ENTIRE life, and I've met a lot of boys... We hung out all day and drove around Boston with this crazy taxi driver and tried on funny hats and sat in massage chairs and just yeah... I loved every minute of it.

Happiness. Monday was good. I hated Harvard. I mean, I really, really hated it. However much I liked Brown, I hated Harvard. I don't know - everyone there was just really full of themselves and snobby and there were, like, no students interacting on campus and the whole atmosphere was antisocial. Maybe I'm being too hard on Harvard. I don't know, but there was this one really creepy kid who looked like the guy from RED EYE who wouldn't stop staring at me. Twas sketchy...

Then we visited BC because that's where Alberto goes. We got lost and ended up on the subway somehow. It was all good. Flight home was fine. I miss Boston. Last night rocked because I got to talk to Luce, though, which is always nice. I want to go to Europe! Today we had conferences. Swimming was fun because Mike and Phoebe are hilarious, and that was my lane. Sweet.

In Which I Make a List of Things I Learned While Sick [Oct. 19th, 2006|04:37 pm]

[mood |sicksick]

I can't believe I have watched HBO movies and MTV all day long. I mean, I'm watching MADE right now and some girl wants to be a pageant queen - how typical. Seriously, I say if you want to do the stupid show, then do something INTERESTING. Like, get made into a comedian. Like Dane Cooke. He's hilarious. Or I don't know, but seriously...

So after my birthday I ended up getting really sick. Tuesday night wasn't that bad, but yesterday was not a good day. Well, just not-feeling-well-wise, that is. Anyways, how boring is this entry? Very... Anyways.

I have come to a few conclusions today:
1) The guy in the movie Anastasia is really hot - even though he's a cartoon character.
2) Will Ferrel has his stomach hanging out in every single movie he's ever done - I'm not kidding.
3) Monopoly is better in France than by yourself at home, even those games that last about seven hours!
4) Christian Bale is a severe hottie and I wish that I had a poster of him like Andie has a poster of Legolas.
5) It's impossible to watch Super Sweet 16 while simultaneously doing math homework.

Yeah, I watched about eight episodes of Super Sweet 16. That show cracks me up. Anyways, I have to go read this thing for English in case I am better tomorrow. Bye everyone!

In Which Katie and Lucy Complete My Birthday... [Oct. 17th, 2006|10:16 pm]

[mood |crazycrazy]

So my birthday started how kind of... not good. It wasn't exciting or happy or anything, and it was rainy and depressing. It was pretty bad...

... until English. Sam bought the coolest earrings EVER and a gift certificate to get my nails done! Also, in English she bought a ton of cupcakes from Cafe Carolina for the class. That is a good friend!!!

Then I worked out for what seemed a bazillion years. At the gym there were two puppies about the size of my hand! THEY WERE SO CUTE!!!!!!!!! Hahaha, little puppies are adorable. The only thing cuter are little kittens! Yay! So anyways, life was fine...

And then the birthday was fine, and we had the greatest cake ever (chocolate cake, with mocha buttercream frosting between the layers, and vanilla buttercream frosting on top!!!), which was home-made. Yay for baked goods. I ate so much crap today. 

Anyways, here was the real highlight of the day: At about 9:00, I suddenly hear alarms and whistles and a loud cacophonous noise from I don't even know where! Then the door burst open and Lucy and Katie run into the house carrying hats and whistles and clapping things and necklaces... and the best present of ALL time: TWO TUBS OF MAXIE B'S FROZEN YOGURT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH MY FREAKING GOD LIFE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER AT THE MOMENT! God, I have the best friends in the world. :)

So they hung out with me for a while, and I was pretty content, although I think I'm getting strep. Well, that happens a trillion times a year, and I haven't had it since States during the spring, so I wouldn't be surprised... I have watched about five hours of Seinfeld this afternoon due to the fact that my father is going to China for three weeks, and that is our favorite show to watch together. Go team. So everyone - thanks for making this birthday rock. Love to all of my best friends out there. *MWAH!*

In Which This is my Last Day as a 16-Year-Old... [Oct. 16th, 2006|04:58 pm]

[mood |pensivepensive]
[music |Look After You - The Fray]

In fourteen hours, 3 minutes, and two seconds, I'm going to be seventeen...

THAT IS JUST WEIRD, if you know what I mean. I mean, come on, if you think about it, it seems like only yesterday that I was in Ms. Hopkins class and had a crush on Alex, or I was in Mrs. Neufeld's class and she threatened to kill us all with a stun gun, or I was in Mr. Martin's earth science class, learning about massive stars combusting, or I worked on my leaf project for biology with Claire. Well, the last one really was yesterday, but as for the rest... Gee, the time flies, doesn't it?

Well, that's enough rhetoric for you at the moment, eh? Anyways, let's move on, shall we? Let's shall. Lately life has been somewhat... irritating. I pretty much fail at French, but it's okay because I will still forever love France. Dude, nobody can possibly imagine how much I want to go to Nice right now and hit up Las Tapas or Checkpoint, or crush on some hot Spanish boys, or even just head out to that rocky beach. LE SIGH. Anyways, point was, French is impossible this year. All other classes are fine, other than the fact that Mrs. Rosenthal has no idea how to teach history, and her husband is even worse at it. Junior year certainly does give you a run for the money, though.

So basically other than that life has been fine. I still only swim about two days a week, which is fine. I mean, it'd be nice to be good at swimming, but I no longer think that's going to happen to me, so what's the point in stressing over it? Also, I don't think swimming is any fun anymore. I used to go and laugh all the time and crack jokes and it didn't matter how I swum because everyone made me feel funny and loved. That's one reason why I still like - well, tolerate - school. Coolest kids in the world. By the way, email chain has set a goal of ten thousand emails by TWIRP. We've got about 222 left to go, and a little less than two weeks. GO TEAM!!!

So I really shouldn't be posting right now due to the fact that we have a French quiz tomorrow and an APUSH dbq. Yeah, it'd be nice if I actually knew what the stupid dbq was on. Well, I mean, how to write it, that is. Oh well. Gotta deal with these things. Anyways, ciao my loves, I will write again ASAP!!!! xoxoxoxoxo
