|| The Wedding is over! OMG! i die

|| The wedding was beautiful and perfect, now let me explain my day to you all.

8 am - Wake Up, shower, do hair, make up, sew belt loop on dress, get dressed
9:20 - Leave, drive to church, eat a nutrigrain bar in car
9:55 - Arrive at Church
10 - Melissa and Hannah (bridesmaid and maid of honor respectively) ask if I can drive to Sabrina's mother's house to get the flower girl flowers that were left in the fridge. It's a half hour drive each way. The wedding starts at 11.
10:05 - I leave church and speed all the way across town
10:55 - I arrive back at church with flowers. First thing Erin says when I walk in the church, "About time! Where were you? I've had to do everything myself!" To which I reply that I had to go get the flowers (that are obviously in my hand). She rolls her eyes
11 - Wedding. So beautiful. I almost cried
11:30 - Leave church (again) and drive to reception site
12:00 - Find out I've been stuck with Erin and her friend (loser friend, it needs to be said) Tyler at a table. Luckily there are also two strangers I can talk to as well. I have my first glass of wine
12:30 - Sabrina and Jamil Arrive. They announce arrival of special guest that we have been told about since March. No one knows who this is except Sabrina and Jamil and their parents and Hannah. The guest? Abraham Lincoln. They brought in an impersonator. He gave a speech. It was epic.
1:00 - We eat. It was yummy. I have my second glass of wine.
1:45 - Cake. It was also yummy. I switch to coke.
2:00 - Toasts and speeches. I have my third glass of wine.
2:15 - First dance. Austen leaves to get in to Gorilla suit. Comes back as a gorilla in a tux jacket. I am not even joking. The reception gets even more epic when inflatables are thrown on to the dance floor. These include a bass, a dinosaur, a moose head, and a cooked turkey inflatables. We all proceed to act stupid and play 'Keep off the floor' with the inflatable turkey.
3:00ish - Becca and Hannah are thanking me for 'saving the wedding' or at least Sabrina's sanity that morning. I ask if Erin knew what I was doing. They say yes she did. I get pissed off. I have my fourth glass of wine.
3:10ish - I find Erin complaining about me not helping her in the church that morning to Sarah, who had been late to the wedding herself helping to set up the reception area and decorate the wedding cake. I snap at Erin "I was getting the flowers. You know that. It was thirty minutes to Dr. Lawler's house and then thirty minutes back! I managed to do it in 50, counting the time it took to find the flowers in the house!. I was there at 9:55, you didn't show up until 10:20, 20 minutes later than Sabrina asked you and you've been complaining about not getting to sleep in on a Saturday, so please stop acting so put upon and lying to people!" Erin gets pissy and storms off. Sarah rolls her eyes and asks me if I'm okay and says not to take Erin seriously because they all know I've done a lot more for Sabrina and for the wedding than Erin has.
3:20ish - I switch to water and then dance with Austen (still in the gorilla suit), and Daisuke (who's wearing a yukata). Erin glares at me cause Daisuke is her ex. (which might be why I danced with him)
3:40ish - Seth, Chase, and Austen seranade Sabrina and Jamil to the tune of 80's pop hit, that I can not for the life of me remember now.
3:50 - Bouqet gets tossed. Everyone unmarried (male, female, divorced, widowed whatever) has to try and catch as per Sabrina's order. Jamil's dad catches it.
4 - I leave to go home.

||In short, it was pretty much the greatest wedding I've ever been to. Erin and her self-centeredness non-withstanding. I don't know what the hell Erin's problems are but she's been getting worse and worse. Everyone has noticed. Sabrina said at her bachelorette's party that she wished she hadn't made Erin an usher and had made Sarah one instead. All Erin cares about is herself. She had the audacity to snap at Sabrina at Sabrina's reception for telling someone that Erin was vegan. She was telling Jamil's dad, who is also vegan. Erin said that Sabrina shouldn't be telling her business.

||Ugh. I've already started distancing myself from Erin because it's just not worth it anymore. I kind of can't wait for her to be gone.

|| Now, art! I haven't drawn in ages but I doodled these two things while waiting for my mom one day. They aren't very good and I drew them in a tiny 4 inch by 2 inch note book and then took photos with my phone, but still, ART!
Cut for your convience )

|| Finally, I have a new mix up at [livejournal.com profile] robbing_banks. It's a mix for Moriarty from Sherlock BBC.
straightrhodes: (misc | Fuck I love shoes)
Sorry I haven't been around the past couple of days. I've been preparing for Sabrina's Wedding and all the other stuff involved.

I found an awesome pair of gold shoes and a cute matching clutch, so outfit wise I'm all set.

I am pissed about my face though! I KEEP BREAKING OUT ON MY CHIN! Grrr. What am I? 14 again? Shit it sucks.

Sabrina is freaking out. She's so stressed out and every little thing causes her to burst in to tears. I think she's going to give herself an ulcer before tomorrow is over. Her stressing out is causing me to stress out.

Tomorrow is the wedding though so everything will be over soon. I wake up at 8 to be ready at 9 just in case Sabrina needs me for something. I'll be at the church by 10 and the ceremony starts at 11. Then we all move to the reception at a country club. That lasts until 4. I'm hoping I don't have to stay the whole time because my shoes will be killing my feet by then, haha. I'm only an usher (although my role is a lot more than a typical usher) so hopefully no one will mind if I bail out early.

I'll try to get some photos at the reception. If I remember my camera. I'll probably be freaking out so much tomorrow that I'll forget haha.

# Finally finished and posted that Sherlock fic. It ended up being more than 6500 words, haha. I found a truly wonderful lady to beta and brit-pick it for me. It really needed it too!

# OMG! School's almost over! *hyperventilates and dies*

# I have SO MUCH TO DO once school is over. It's all shit I've been putting of. (I've been using school as an excuse so I'll have to find a new one soon.)

1. Clean Room
2. Clean out fridge
3. Finish training at Ashland
4. Prepare for Sabrina's Wedding
5. Finish redecorating Bathroom
6. Buy new bed at Ikea (and you know, put it together)
7. Clean out closet
8. More (there is always more)

# Chinese project is going well I think. We're writing about two of director Zhang Yimou's movies, Raise the Red Lantern and Under the Hawthorn Tree. THEY ARE BOTH SO SAD!

# Me and Laurel hope to spend about 5 days in New York City this summer! OMG! It will be so much fun! I've never been. Every other major city on the East Coast I've been to but not NYC. I WILL MAKE THIS HAPPEN NO MATTER WHAT!

# Still training for interning at Ashland. I go on yet another tour tomorrow. Did you know one of Henry Clay's sons was commited to an Insane Asylum?

# ERIN IS DRIVING ME INSANE! And it's weird. I know she's not leaving till July but I already miss her. I think I miss how our friendship used to be. Now we have practically nothing in common and she stresses me out so much. I hate to say it but Erin's kinda a bad friend too. She goes on and on about her life and her problems, but I can't say anything about what stresses me out? I wonder if I'm not clinging to our friendship not for friendship's sake but for my memories.

Also: Who doesn't know what their hobbies are? I asked Erin what she likes to do and she couldn't answer me. How weird is that?

# It has been raining for 5 days. FIVE DAYS It's so depressing!

# Watched the first episode of Aoi no Exorcist. It was good. Maybe I should give the manga another go?

# Sorry to my flist for having to put up with so many rants, especially about Erin.
straightrhodes: (wc | mozzie wants you)
HOLY CRAP! There is only ONE more week of classes and then a week of finals!

Sabrina's wedding is in 3 weeks! OMG! I still need shoes and bag and a gift!

Just finished my 5 page paper on The Aesthetics of Chanoyu. WHY ARE MY CLASSES SO WEIRD?

I have TWO projects due next week! They're group projects thank god!

Because of those two projects I can't go to my grandmother's for Easter! I AM GOING TO BE ALONE ALL WEEKEND! I'm lonely~

I have two Chinese movies to watch before tomorrow. Ugh. They are subtitles it's just that the movies seem kind of boring.

A Panda Express just opened in the Student Center. I haven't gotten to eat there yet because it's been swarmed. I want to try it~

If you like Sherlock (BBC) check out [livejournal.com profile] robbing_banks. I posted a Sherlock Fanmix a few days ago.

Speaking of Sherlock I'm 5000 words in to a fic that was suppose to be like 3000. AND I'M NOT EVEN DONE YET! I'm too damn wordy.

Might go see a movie this weekend. What should I see?
straightrhodes: (SenBasa tigers)
|| So I have a new computer now. It's so shiny and new! OMG I'm so in love with it. Everything is so freakin' fast now. LJ loads like mega-quick! And when I play the Sims now I can put it on the highest graphic level. It looks so pretty! My old laptop was 3 years old and the processor sucked. Plus I now have Microsoft Word! I have spellcheck again! I'm so happy!

|| For a paper I have to write for my Tourism class I had to go to a tourism spot. I chose Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate.It's this really old, beautiful house that belonged to the statesman Henry Clay (who ran for President 3 times in the early 1800s and lost all three times, poor him, haha). It was awesome! And I asked about volunteering there and they were really excited about it, haha. I think they're hurting for volunteers. I still have to apply and go through the whole process, but it's pretty much a done deal since I'm over the age of 18 and have no criminal background. I would be giving tours and working in the office and maybe even assisting on curatorial projects. It sounds so fun.

|| Speaking of the paper I should probably be working on that as it's due Thursday, but I have writer's block. I'm having problems deciding on a thesis. I have the title though, Gender and Race at Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate.

|| Since I'm not working on my paper I'm working on a fic instead, haha. It's a Sherlock fic. I hope to have it done sometime this weekend, but I think we all know how likely I get things done by the time I say I will.

|| Finally got that Chapter done for the story me and [livejournal.com profile] daigranon are working on. That only took me like 2 months, oops. Sorry Dai!

|| My hair looks awesome today. I'm not sure what I did but it looks fantastic. Just saying xD

|| So after much deliberation and discussion with my parents I decided to switch from being an Anthropology major and Art History minor to being a Art History major and an Anthropology minor. It will be easier for me to get in to Museum Studies programs for Grad School this way, plus idk, I have a lot of problems with our Anthropology department. I guess I'm not liberal (i.e. I don't hate 'the white man') enough for most of the proffessors. I got torn to shreds one day in History of Anthroplogical Theory because I stated an opinion that the proffessor didn't agree with. She and her league of kiss-ups ripped me to pieces. I nearly had a panic attack. After that I wouldn't participate in class, which hurt my final grade. Whereas all my art history teachers have absolutely loved me and my writing so, yeah.

|| Keeneland is opening on Friday! I bought a new dress to wear!

|| Speaking of buying new dresses I found the perfect dress for Sabrina's wedding! AND it was on sale for 100 dollars off! Yes! I thought I'd be spending 150 dollars on a dress and instead I spent 50. I did have to buy a belt to go with it though as the dress is a little too big and the belt was expensive. But they look so pretty together I don't care. Now I just need shoes, a purse, maybe some jewelry. Jeez.
straightrhodes: (F*ck is always apropos)
// It was really nice and warm for like two weeks here but then about a week ago it got cold again, dammit! It actually snowed on Saturday. I want sun, and warmth, and to wear my dresses and skirts again, cause I own a lot.

// I've been so busy with school and everything. Tests, and presentations, and papers. Ugh.

// Speaking of school I decided to add a minor of Art History. It means that it will take me another semester to graduate but I think it will be worth it. I should be graduating in Spring of '13. Only two years after I was supposed to graduate. is shot

// I feel like there were a couple of things I was supposed to be doing for people on my flist but I can't remember... If I said I was going to do something for you and haven't comment here so I'll do it.

// New mix up at [livejournal.com profile] robbing_banks. It's another sleep mix, mostly instrumental stuff.

// Been trying to work on a fic for Sherlock BBC. It's semi-crack and involves Sherlock turning in to a girl inexplicably. Clearly it will be humor.

// Attended Sabrina's Bridal Shower this weekend. It was a tea, so we drank tea, ate delicious scones, and were fuck-tons of classy, lol. Becca hosted it. Becca not only has two beautiful cats and a corgi, but also a hedgehog named, what else?, Sonic.

// Speaking of the wedding I still need to find a dress, argh!

// So Erin definately has an Eating disorder, but she refuses, despite what two dieticians (and me) have recommended she do, which is see a therapist. Erin believes that certain mental illnesses are just things that people should get over on their own, like OCD and Depression and Bipolar and apparently Eating Disorders. She thinks medicine (and therapy) is a crutch. I fucking hate that argument. If you have a broken leg, you use a crutch, if you have diabetes you use insulin, so what the hell is wrong with using Zoloft or Therapy if it's your mind that is ill?

She says people get dependent on it to be happy and that people should just be able to "look inside themselves" to find their happiness. What hippie bullshit. The pills don't make me happy. It's not fucking marijuana. I'm not high on Zoloft. They just make it so the rest of the world isn't crushing down on my. They allow me to see the paths toward happiness.

Maybe it's a good thing she's going to Hawaii, because honestly I'm a little tired of her. Which sounds terrible but we just don't have that much in common anymore. Plus I spend all my time worrying for her, which isn't healthy for me. I told her that I don't want to hear about her problems with Eating anymore because if she's not going to get help then that's just self-destructive behaviour and until she realizes that there is nothing I say that's going to help so I don't want to hear her bitch anymore.

When did friendship get so hard? Can we go back to being 7 and the most complicated thing about being friends was whether or not to share your cookie at lunch?
straightrhodes: (True Story yo!)
// I caught the flu last week. Fabulous. But I'm better now, so yay?

// It's Spring Break and I've done nothing. Mainly because I'm still getting over being sick.

// Got a hair cut last Saturday. I only got about two inches cut off but damn does my hair seem shorter D: Still I had to get my discolored and broken ends off.

// Shit I have a lot to accomplish. I have about three fics I need to be working on. School work (blargh). Cleaning my room. Dying my hair. Painting my bathroom. Ugh. SO MUCH TO DO!

// Erin got in to the University of Hawaii. I'm happy and really sad at the same time. I don't want her to leave me! I have so much trouble making friends and she's been my friend for over ten years now. My best friend for five! Plus two of my other really close friends are leaving too. Sabrina is moving to Georgia to study Botany and Laurel is, well I'm not sure where she's going but she wants to get a job out of town. When did all my friends start growing up into responsible adults?

// Speaking of Sabrina, her Bridal shower is in a week and a half. In Louisville. Jeez. That's over an hour away. Becca is hosting so I guess that's why but shouldn't the Bridal shower be in the same city as the bride? I still need to find a dress for the wedding as well.

// So I'm kinda over the whole Japan trip thing. I figure it would have been cancelled any way what with the Earthquake and Tsunami and all. All of my friends in Japan are fine. Fumiko (who lives in Tokyo) said her house shook terribly but other than that nothing. The rest of my friends live either on the west coast or down south. I've already made donations to the Red Cross. I'd offer something for auction, but real life, you know?

// Since the Japan trip is cancelled indefinately (meaning my school is no longer going to offer it) I decided to look again at some other trips. I've decided that I'm going to try for a 8 week internship in London next summer (2012). I'm hoping they'll have an internship with a museum I could do.

// So I've decided instead of lanquishing this summer to take up the Cello again. I used to play years ago and I loved it but circumstances prevented me from continuing. I'm going to find a private tutor and take up lessons again. I fear I've forgotten all I know, and of course I don't have my cello any more, but I'm really looking forward to it. Now I just need to find a teacher, haha.

// I may go on a trip with Erin this summer too, if she doesn't get a job with one of the National Parks like she wants. Erin is turning a little weird though. Maybe it's a good thing she's leaving because I'm not sure how long a shared background and proximity would have kept us as friends after all. She doesn't believe in taking medicine or eating chemicals (I take a ton of medication and I get the distinct impression that Erin does not approve of my hormone pills or my anti-depressants, she once implied that depression and OCD was something that people 'just needed to get over'). She's super animal-rights (I buy free range and organic when I can but frankly I want to solve human rights issues (such as human trafficking!)) She once told me that animal cruelty was in the same league as child pedophile! NO! NOT AT ALL! To be perfectly honest I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Erin has moved to a commune or something. It's getting that weird. Erin has never been very pragmatic though, and that's irritating. I'm a very pragmatic person at the end of the day.

// Going to IKEA and Anthropologie this weekend with my mom. We love IKEA so much, haha. We're such weirdos. Hahah.

// Tomorrow is St. Paddy's day. Do I own any green?

// Finally broke down and bought a year long paid membership. It's so nice not having any pesky ads.

// Yesterday Sabrina asked me if I was bringing a date to her wedding. I looked at her and said, "What on earth makes you think I'm bringing a date?". In the four years I've been at college I've been on two dates. When I mentioned that to my mom she said "Really? It's been that many?" Thanks mom. Apparently guys find me terrifying (according to Eric my gay friend). Maybe I should become a lesbian. I'm constantly being hit on by lesbians.
straightrhodes: (Get Off My Lawn!)
+ I somehow managed to hurt my back, really badly. I don't know what I did but for three days I was having back spasms and I've had three emergency sessions with my chiropractor and massage therapist.

+ Pissed at my Tourism teacher. She made her test too long so I didn't get to finish the essay, which was worth 30 pts. 15 kids were sitting there when she called 'Turn in your papers in two minutes or get a 0'. Hopefully she takes that in to account when she grades. She's never taught the class before so I think she just underestimated how long it would take.

+ I've had no time to do anything. I thought I'd get a mix done and the second chapter of mine and [livejournal.com profile] daigranon's fic finished up but noooo, I've been too busy. If it's not school it's babysitting or friends or stuff at home or I'm laid up high on pain killers.

+ I haven't yet gotten a comfirmation that I'm in for the Japan program. Now I'm getting worried...

+ Started a new diet. It's pretty stict but I'm definately eating healthier and I'm hoping to lose 15 pounds before May 14th.

+ Speaking of May 14th that's Sabrina's Wedding!!!! I mentioned this ages ago but me and Erin (my bestie) are going to be ushers (because she already has 4 bridesmaids and decided she just could not have any more, haha). The wedding colors are so pretty but now I need to buy a dress, BUT FIRST I MUST LOSE WEIGHT! Not that I'm fat, I'm not. I'd just like to lose weight, haha.

+ Tired... is it friday? No? Damn.
straightrhodes: (Haru/Tsuna)


One of my friends just recently got engaged to her boyfriend of two years (finally!). It's all very exciting as I've been saying for the past year that those two need to get married already.
So last wednesday we had a potluck (mmm, potluck) at our friend Karla's apartment (which is soon to be my best friend Erin's apartment too). After the potluck, as me, Erin, and Sabrina (the girl getting married) are trying to figure out whose taking Sabrina home, Sabrina suddenly asks us something.

"Would you two like to be ushers at my wedding?"
"Sure." We both say.
"Aren't ushers usually guys?" I ask.
"Well, you're my guys, right?" Sabrina is very odd I should mention.
So now I get to be an usher at a wedding.

Then she sends out an email, she's been testing palettes of colors at some weird color website and wants our opinion (the bridesmaids and ushers). In the email she says that ushers (me and Erin only apparently) won't have to wear special dresses (think you Jesus!) but we'll be given corsages to show that we belong to the wedding mafia (her exact words).
It made me laugh.
I have a vision of us all wearing fedora's to the wedding (dyed to match our shoes of course) and having guns strapped to our thighs under the dresses.
