i don’t post here anymore, sorry, but i was going to publish this on my secret blog and then i decided at the last minute to put this little ditty (doesn’t that mean song? this isn’t a song) up here.
i’m going home tomorrow and i’m hoping for about three weeks of ungodly fun and debauchery since everyone’s gonna be home and many won’t be working but there’s a good chance i’ll be the only free one what with family vacations and assorted important shit. i’ve got nothing. nothing but my laptop, my uncomfortable bed, my mom’s cooking (when she’s not at work) and a book i’ve already read.
i am hoping for a great time though. also hoping to hookup with someone. it’s so dumb and cliche to hook up with someone from high school once you’re in college and on break but it’s been awhile and i’m craving some touch, yo. dey ain’t gotta be from my secondary educational institute, i ain’t picky
then again, i have been resembling a beached whale lately. i have to stop eating. i might try to cut sugar and dairy out of my diet over break. at least gratuitous sugar and dairy. one, because i’m lactose intolerant and i think the dairy i’ve been eating is the reason my stomach has been hurting at night. two, because i have at least two cavities and i’ve recently become more aware of them. three, because i’m fat.
next subject— three of my best/really really good friends have jobs over break and a fourth is going away for like a week right when i get here. fucking jobs, man. it’s called break not work i mean what the heck save it for the summer homies.
whatever. i guess goals of break are (in no order)
1. stop eating / not be as fat (don’t message me some shit like omg u r so0o nawt fat omg hannah wtf!!!!! because you don’t see my stomach when i take my shirt off ok)
2. hook up with anything (what?)
3. have debaucherous fun
4. leave san diego with a grandiose feeling of not wanting to leave
5. but also with an overall feeling of satisfaction/ content with my friends from school cause that’s been kinda lacking lately
6. be more fun and outgoing like srsly i’ve always put it on my bucket list since i was like, old enough to write but it’s really NOT THAT FUCKING HARD and i know i don’t need alcohol for it but alcohol also doesn’t hurt very much hehehe ;)
7. drink less coffee. this semester / past few weeks have been comparable to an IV drip of espresso and i need to lay off. bad for the teeth. bad for the health.
8. get my wisdom teeth out or so help me zeus
It’s been awhile and I apologize for that! It seems that I’ve been so busy lately and the time it takes to write out a post of my day could be time spent sleeping or watching TV. But alas, yesterday I had a really fabulous day and I knew that in a few weeks I’ll completely forget about it unless it’s brought up and frankly I like having a place where I can go back and see what I’ve done. So whether you’ve been anticipating my next post (Kiana) or this is simply me reading it in the future, this post is for YOU.
Okay so yesterday was the earliest game of the season (and according to Aubrey it was the earliest game in like 80 years). I did NOT want to get up and tailgate before kickoff at 12 but it was the homecoming game and I love football games in general and I knew I’d regret it so I hopped out of bed and started to get ready. The weather said it was gonna be 62 so I dressed warm and cozy with a scarf, a sweater, a jacket, socks and boots. As long as it wasn’t scorching hot at 12 in the afternoon I GUESS I could deal. I headed over to Jenevieve’s and met up with Alexa and Aubrey. We hung out there for a bit and then headed over to the game. We met Denise along the way and instead of getting awful seats (since we got to the coliseum literally as kickoff was happening) we sat with Phi Delt, aka the fraternity all my friends have hard-ons for. But hey, if it was gonna get us good seats I was ALL for it. The game was great- we won by 20 points I think. It wasn’t as cold as I expected it to be so that frustrated me a little bit but it was a beautiful day.
After the game I came home, watched the new episode of glee and had a little snack of leftover Maggiano’s spaghetti. I started to watch the new Vampire Diaries episode but Aubrey texted me letting me know we were going out to dinner in 15 minutes. I threw some warm clothes on (not warm enough, coincidentally) and headed over to Jenevieve’s. Aubrey drove Neha, Jvieve and me downtown to a restaurant called Il Mare. We were a bit uneasy because it was completely empty when we got there but the prices weren’t that bad, the garlic bread was delicious and we all enjoyed our meals. It was annoying though because two families came in at the same time and instead of taking advantage of an ENTIRELY empty restaurant they both happened to sit down right. next. to. us. After dinner (I had a caprese salad) we drove to Syrup Desserts. Best fucking place in the world. I got a liege waffle with nutella, chocolate, bananas, chocolate ice cream and whipped cream and it was heavenly. After we devoured our desserts we went back to lady cargar and just hung out for hours. Evan and Kalei came over and we ended up playing card games all night. It was such a great time. And Jenevieve realized that everyone in the room was who they were trying to live with next year and I found it quite comical because they hadn’t invited me to live with them. No one had mentioned it. Yet the day before at the One Direction concert Sheridan called me asking if I wanted to go on a tour of a house with them. I played it off and said I couldn’t but I was so excited about the possibility of living with them. And then last night Vieve was like “yeah this is the group we’re trying to live with next year. hannah and aubrey, you’re for sure living with us right?” I was like wtf no one had said ANYTHING to me about it and now I’m committed? I found it quite comical. Neha, Evan and Kalei went to Subway and I couldn’t take the delicious smell of their subs so I peaced out and reheated my Maggiano’s pasta. Natalie was quite drunk and cracked me up all night. And I got to finish Vampire Diaries. It was just a really great day even though nothing REALLY exciting or noteworthy happened. I like those kinds of days.
LETS JUXTAPOSE MY MORNING AND NIGHT IN PHOTOS
Ok so basically I woke up REALLY FUCKING HUNGOVER and it was awful. Or wait, did I already blog about this? How apparently I fell asleep on my friend’s coffee table Friday night (I’m actually really happy about that because it’s the last thing I remember before I woke up on the couch aka I didn’t black out like I was afraid I might have). Anyway, I woke up at my friends apartment, came home, slept for a few hours, woke up, threw up, went back to bed (or tried to), got hassled about going to tailgate for the game with my friends, made a lean cuisine and then couldn’t eat it, got ready slowly, had toast and then met Marjie. We walked over to campus together and met up with our friends. We hung out for a bit at some tailgates but I didn’t drink anything because FUCK THAT. We went to the game and tried to sit with a frat that my friends love and we did but it basically ended up sucking for awhile because somehow I became the only person who wasn’t standing on their chairs (because I didn’t have a chair because there were too many of us) and I couldn’t see a thing. Marjie and I went to get water and food and we ended up staying outside the game for like 30 minutes hiding from the heat and enjoying my delicious $8 burger because it was the only thing I had to eat all day. We went back down and it was like 20 minutes of me being pissed off cause I couldn’t even see the jumbotrons it was stupid. Finally some people in front of me left so I stood on a chair and then the rest of the game was really fun. We crushed Cal like 27 to 9 I think? It was great. I came home and COOKED!!!! I made a delicious salad and ravioli with pasta sauce. So good :) I saved half of the ravioli for leftovers. I started to get ready because we were going to go to a party that one of the improv teams was throwing. I met up at the Bootches’ apartment and I had just missed a few Cal kids hanging out. We left pretty soon after I got there and went to a party. It was interesting. I guess it was at the house of the swim team and there were a lot of athletes there and there were a few kids that I would see all the time last year who I found attractive and two of them were there last night. Oh and I walked by one and made sure to rub up against him whatever don’t judge it’s so fun to rub up against hot guys when you’re walking by. We were gonna go to the improv party after but it got shut down before we could go :( When the swim party got shut down we went back to the Bootches’ and just chilled for a bit. I realized I was really tired and hungry so I came home and ate the rest of my ravioli. WOO.
Today I have some homework I should get done and I really should do my laundry.. damn.
I haven’t updated in a week and I’m sorry for that. I’ve just been really, really busy. It’s weird. I go to class 4/5 days of the week, i work 14.5 hours a week, i do research 8 hours a week and i try to have fun too. it’s a hard life.
but anyway, i’ll blog about yesterday while I’m getting over my hangover and making lean cuisine pasta.
i slept in like usual, got ready and went to the newest dining hall. it was actually really good and i need to use my meal swipes so HELLOOO THERE. after i went to work for 6.5 hours and it seemingly went by really fast. it was great. after work i came home and just kinda laid around. i skyped with my friend sharon for two hours whilst getting ready and eating dinner and stuff. OH I DID MY WALL!!! well, it was already done but i got my wall and laptop decal in the mail as well as the art i ordered :) i’m s0o0o happy. except nothing sticks to my wall and the decal was no exception (like i hoped it would be) but i made it work. and they sent me an extra one for fun and i put it on my wall and it looks grand as well.
k so i met up with jeneveive, marjie, sheridan and neha and we went to olivia choi’s to pregame. for posterity i think i had 4 or 5 shots? a few of them were halves but nonetheless… we left for the party kinda earlyish cause we knew it was gonna get crazy. the row is on probation for three weeks except for registered parties and events and not only was this the first registered event of the year it’s gonna be one of the only things happening for awhile. it was fun. i had a cranberry vodka when i got there and idek what to say it was just really fun. we danced and partied and met up with friends and lost friends and danced and i was gonna leave with neha but then our friend showed up so we didn’t and then i had another cranvodka and then we danced some more and then finally we decided to leave but we ran into our friend jeremy on the way out and he was really wasted so we all walked to his apartment and stayed there? idk it was weird people kept showing up and we were all kinda just hanging out and i was pretty very drunk and then i was watching jimmy play robot unicorn attack on the computer shit idek they were going to play pool i remember that and then i woke up this morning on their couch and NO ONE WAS AROUND. i freaked out cause i couldn’t remember falling asleep or anything and i was afraid i blacked out but that was impossible cause i didn’t drink anything after the party and where was everyone! so i left and texted neha and i was like wuttt and she told me i fell asleep and i guess her and sheridan were in the other room? so they didn’t leave me hahahahaha
i came home around 7 am and fell asleep. i recently woke up and threw up water, so that’s always fun. especially cause the football game is today and aubrey is already tailgating trying to get me to hurry up and i’m afraid all the alc is just gonna activate my gag reflex
it’s 2am and i’m quite excited to go to bed. here’s a brief overview of my day: slept in, uploaded pictures, tumblred, wasted internet time, started to read, went to grocery store, tried to read more, took nap, tried to read more, went to my aunt’s birthday dinner at a yummy kosher chinese restaurant (no one at the dinner was kosher but it’s rosh hashanah as well aka jewish new year so L’SHANA TOVAH it was very busy in the restaurant because of jew reasons), ate too much, had a good time, came home, showered, cleaned the mirrors and counters and sinks (fucking sunday cleaning day), finally read at least a little bit!! i have this book i was supposed to have finished on thursday and it’s very long and i wanted to read it today and also yesterday but so far it didn’t work… f u c k
i’m so behind on schoolwork.
i almost blogged when i got home last night but instead i edited pictures so i could post them as soon as i woke up this morning. i brought phyllis (my nikon d3000) out for the first time ever! it’s generally an awful idea to bring an expensive camera (or anything) from party to party in south central LA especially when you don’t have anything to put it in. but it was my girl neha’s birthday and it’s been TOO LONG since phyllis and i have had fun times together so i just said FUCK IT. and i’m glad. i love being in pictures but i also love being the photographer. it’s a hard life.
anyway! so i woke up around 11 yesterday and threw some clothes on. i was relatively prepared for the heat but that doesn’t mean i wanted to go outside and walk .9 miles but i had to do it! i had to! i walked to the digital television studios or whatever cause i had an equipment training meeting at 12:30. it’s kinda dumb cause i’m doing it for a show i wanna be involved in but i can’t really help during their broadcast but if i don’t do the equipment training i will NEVER be able to help if i wanted to. and i think maybe next weekend we’ll get trained in their portable stuff which is vital for the show i’m trying to get involved in. anyway the training went fine. i learned how to over-under cable!! i’m really excited about that cause people always talked about it at xgames and now i know how to do it! i also miked a guy who reads really weirdly sexual poetry and stories at open mic nights sometimes. i was a little uncomfortable but it’s all good. also i like to be on tv. after that i went to cvs and got a few things and then went up to the jordans’ apartment. j jeffs and i talked for a bit while we were waiting for jordan to get home. we were all trying to watch the usc game at espn zone but tia wasn’t answering and i was getting frustrated. jordan and i just decided to head over there and get a table and eat cause i was STARVING. tia ended up meeting us there with her roommate morgan and jordan and i nommed hard on bbq wings and spinach dip but i don’t think i’m ever watching a game at the zone ever again. they have this dumb thing where each person has to spend 10$ every hour. like um hi sorry we can’t drink and there’s no way we’re each getting four appetizers in four hours and if you have free soda refills what do you want us to do?! like it’s a great way to make money but FUCK THAT. we hopped back on the metro and morgan & tia got talked to by some creepy black guy who reminded me of the CAN I HAVE YO NUMBAA guy. very interesting. we went to ground zero to watch the game and it was really weirdly quiet cause it’s a cafe and not a sports bar (i don’t know why we didn’t go to the sports bar on campus but whatever) but it didn’t matter cause we lost. it was a hard game to watch but HEY, we still have hotter students and a better band. and their mascot is a tree. and we’re still arrogant HOLLAAA
after the game jordan got her things and we went to my apartment to get ready. when we were lookin sexual (see above) we went to the bootches’ for neha’s birthday party pregame. it was quite fun but the night got so weird. we left to go to this pajama party but when we were halfway there we heard it got shut down so we walked on this street that occasionally has parties and it was pretty dead so we went to gabe’s house and the bathroom was used and the triscuits were eaten. then we walked to asian beta cause we heard they were having something but they were charging 20$ to get in. i’m still in shock. WHO EVEN WANTS TO GO TO ASIAN BETA?! NOBODY. we went to tke but their party was lame and evan and kalei obviously couldn’t get in so we came right out. we went to phi psi and king kalei worked his magic and got both him and evan in WHICH IS UNHEARD OF but it worked. we were there for a bit but the parties last night just were not fun. then of course dps came so we just went back to cargar and partied a little bit longer. then jenevieve just decided to kick everyone out so most of us left and we were about to when we popped into this other kickback next door but they kicked everyone out really soon after. jordan evan kalei gabi and i were just chilling outside of the building and then jeremy and andrew and their new friends came over and idek we were just there sitting and laughing and talking and taking pictures for like 30 minutes for no reason at all. however it was almost 2:45 and jordan needed to cruise home so we peaced out and then she peaced out and i came home and edited pictures. and that was my saturday.
damn blogging is so time consuming
i’m a little bit drunk right now but i’m nomming hard on pretzel crisps, grapes, extra sharp cheddar cheese and a garlic and herb laughing cow triangle. the first three pictures are before i went out, when i was obsessed with my braids and couldn’t decide whether or not to leave them in… and the picture by my new dreamcatcher basically just means I REALLY WANT TO GO TO A NATIVE AMERICAN THEMED PARTY like cowboys v. indians or s/t. like ruuuuul bad. the fourth picture is when i got home, like 30 minutes ago
OKAY HERE IS MY DAY
i set my alarm for like, idk 9:45? i keep trying to get up earlyish and it just keeps failing. i didn’t get out of bed until like 10:30 and i took a shooowwerr. when i got out i had texts from tia and jordan like COME MEET US NOW and i was like um wut even. i got ready really quickly and met them for lunch. after j and i caught up with tia we both went to the lab to code. i only got to code for like 40 minutes and then i had a SIX AND A HALF HOUR SHIFT AT WORK. it wasn’t too bad, honestly. my shift began with a free sandwich and my shift ended with a free sandwich and a cookie. basically whenever anyone in annenberg gets catering for anything they have, they come bring us leftovers. and. it’s. great. work was basically uneventful. there’s nothing really to report except i was trying to get reading done for my anthro class and i spent most of my shift on la computadora. after work i picked up two of my packages and (INTERJECTION: so this guy who’s like, cute ishhhh, works at the front desk of my building and during move in day i kept having to check out bins from him and the next day we made eye contact when he was riding his bike and THEN again like HOURS later at starbucks i saw him and idk i get vibes from people and i was like o shit u r vibin on m3 mannn and then a few days ago i had to pick up a package and he would have been helping me out except there was this fob [not trying to be offensive but it was really bad] who he was trying to help and it was just failing miserably so some manager lady helped me and then today he went and got my packages and like joked that they were heavy and i was like U R VIBIN ON ME SIR and that’s the end of the story basically i just wanted to record this for posterity in case something ever happens ok bye) one of them was my new marc jacobs laptop case which is a LOT greener than i expected (yes i ordered parrot green but it looked tealer online) but i like it anyway and the packaging was so JANK i was like whoa way to go marc jacobs it looks like some lazy intern packed this. anyway i hung up my dreamcatcher and order a wall decal and a matching laptop decal (i rly liked itok) it says dreamer in a cute font so idk we’ll seeeee. and then i took an hour nap and got ready and made myself butternut squash ravioli lean cuisineeee. then i went to my friend’s apartment and pregamed a bit and then jen and marjjjj came over and it was fun and we walked to this party and we were there for, idk maybe an hour or so? i wasn’t keeping track cause it was SO FUCKING HOT IN THERE O M G. it was the hottest day so far and i guess this house doesn’t have AC and every room was just a hotter sauna it was cray. and i acknowledged/ hugged this guy erick who i hooked up with at the end of last semester for the first time since it happened and it was kinda awk but i want to try to eliminate all the awk but IDK HOW. so the party was o k and then it got shut down so we went back to cargar and had a low-key ish party and played fuck you and then shot seat and it was randomish and then some people left and some more people came and it was really chillish but really fun too idk and then we went to the bootches’ apartment and drank and danced and it was rly fun. but i left cause idk im tired and i have this thing tomorrow at 12:30 and i didn’t wanna sleep there like last weekend. last weekend was B A D. and plus tomorrow night (or tonight, i guess) they’re having a bday pregame for MY GIRL NEHA’S big d a y so that will be lots o’ fun :)
but wow this seemingly took forever and now i’m full and exhausted time for bed homiezzz
edit: i’m not fucking proofreading this FUCK THAT but i forgot to mention that MARJIE took one of my hairties out so that’s why my hair is down in the las tpicture. i wanted that hair tomorrow/tonight but noo0o she took it out so i had to take both out ok bye
i was EXHAUSTED this morning when i woke up and i’m pretty sure i slept for awhile… i’m not quite sure why this occurred but i snoozed a LOT. i didn’t feel like getting ready or going to class at all but i threw on a dress and smeared some makeup on my face anyway. my native american class was relatively interesting as always but i didn’t think i’d need coffee and i was sooo tired. OH i made a panini this morning and it looked awful but it didn’t taste that bad… i went to physics and legitimately almost cried in class. i am afraid that i’m going to fail. so. badly. HGJKSHG after i got coffee bean and met up with neha and later jenevieve and just chilled. jen and i went and got food and i just relaxed for a bit instead of doing research. i went to class and we went over the lab we did this week and i was relatively spot on for both movies so that was exciting. after class i went right to work and nothing exciting happened aside from the free veggie pizza. so great. after work i went to the asca mixer and it was weird but kinda fun… right after that ended i did about 40 minutes of research and then i went home and got ready to go out. i was running in and out of the living room to catch the new episode of glee, even though i saw it last night, and i still didn’t feel like going out. i cruised to my friends’ apartment and didn’t pregame and just waited to all go out. it was an ok night… it’s whatever. but at one point we were going to leave and outside of the house we were in was this guy who lived in my building last semester who i thought was really hotttttt and i haven’t seen him in awhile so that was exciting. aubrey stayed at the house and jordan and i were walking home when she decided we should turn around and go back. i knew it was pointless so i called cruiser and she ended up just waiting with me for it. we saw our friends jeremy and andrew and they had pizza and she was trying to steal some but it ffaaaiilleedd. they’re super chill guys and i always like running into them. at that point coincidentally aubrey met back up with us and then my cruiser came and now i’m home eating applewood smoked ham and dry roasted edemamme. aubrey’s leaving tomorrow for the weekender and i’m jeeaalouss but we’re also short-staffed at work so i basically have to come in anyway.
also i feel like i may be getting sick in the sense that i’m really tired and i’ve sneezed a few times today… hmmm
i didn’t get any work done this morning but what was i expecting?! i slept fabulously last night on my new cloud-of-a-mattress-pad. i woke up around 10, showered, got ready, ate cereal, went to pick up a package and had it TAKE forever to get it, and then left for class. i tried to read a bit of my textbook for my native american class but that didn’t work out TOO well. class was good. i then got a sandwich from seeds and sat with neha, jenevieve, sheridan and emma and secretly sort of watched miranda cosgrove and patrick schwarenegger eat lunch. but i PEACED the fuck out when neh and jen went to talk to them. in spanish we reviewed for an hour and then took the test and obviously as always i was the first one finished. went home, tried reading for my native american class, got two more packages, freaked out cause zoe wasn’t gonna be able to go to the glee thing toinght, calmed down cause she worked it out and then left. sorry i am so exhausted and i’m in the most awkward typing position ever so i’m not elaborating on anything. the glee screening was GREAT so many people were there, like cast and crewwww and we got to watch the first two episodes of the new season and it’s SO FUCKING GOOOODD and the two new guys are so sexual and ugh it was just great. after we went to chipotle and then to some mixer event for the film frat on campus cause zoe is rushing it. it was fun cause i got to play laser tag for free ;-)
but now i’m homeee rockin the whitestrips and trying not to fall asleep before it’s time to take them off. GOOODNIGHT
holy shit i’m exhausted. tuesdays. suck.
tuesday’s are my longest, hardest days and it definitely didn’t help that last night’s chai tea latte kept me up for so long. i woke up at 7:55 this morning, got ready, made a bagel thing w/ cream cheese and peach jam, made a starbucks caramel iced via coffee and hit the road. i got to my discussion at the perfect time and we talked about our first paper. we kept talking about the book and about possible writing prompts and like, everything SOUNDS cool but i don’t have any of my textbooks yet so i’m a bit lost. AND ugh i got a package today but i didn’t have time to pick it up. anyway, after discussion i went to work for two hours. i had a 30 minute break for lunch so i got a yummy sandwich from lemonade and ate with jordan j and aubrey. i bolted to my anthro class and again, we talked about the paper and about the book that i still don’t have. i’m gonna have so much reading to do this weekend ughh. after my anthro class i headed to physics and just about killed myself. kevin sat next to me again so that was good but literally i don’t understand anything that comes out of my professor’s mouth. he let us out a little bit earlier than normal so i decided to head over to the research lab to do some coding. on my way i ran into neha, jenevieve, jack, and jeremy so i sat down and chilled for like, thirty minutes. aubrey showed up too. it was nice to just breathe for at least a little bit. unfortunately i had to peel myself away from the table to do research; i accidentally did two hours less than i was supposed to last week so not only did i have to do this weeks’ research i had to catch up on last weeks. thankfully, even though he allotted us three hours this week, the research only took about 45 minutes. i started on last week’s stuff right away and only got a little bit done before class started. we watched a clip where genie transformed a million times and it was SO FUCKING CONFUSING. i’m not going to elaborate because the research is a little complicated but i’m just making note of my confusion for posterity. after class i sat outside for 10 minutes and finished the rest of the sandwich i had for lunch and then got an iced tea from the coffee cart. i worked from 6:30-9 and thankfully i was able to take my spanish practice test and do a few of the physics problems (without actually understanding them, mind you.) after work i popped over to the research lab and i had planned to code from 9-10 but my professor happened to be in the hallway talking to another coder so i introduced myself and we talked about the research and stuff for 20 minutes. it was really interesting stuff but i lost 20 minutes of coding time :( after the day ended i had a total of 58 minutes of the 2 hours i’m supposed to make up this week. hopefully i can get it all done tomorrow or something. we’ll see. i called campus cruiser cause i didn’t want to walk home this late with my laptop but they were taking SO LONG to answer so i just said fuck it. there were actually a lot of people in the area so it wasn’t bad. i’m home now and i would honestly be sleeping right now except we’re supposed to have a roommate meeting at 11? i have no idea. i put my mattress pad on my bed and i am so excited to sleep on it tonight :) after i finish this im gonna pop my white strips on and hope that grace comes home soon (we’re waiting on her for the meeting). i wanted to get some reading done for comm but there is honestly NO WAY i could do anything like that in my state. i’m going to try and wake up a little early tomorrow since i don’t have my lab and get some work done before class. we’ll see. if this meeting ends soon i will plop down in bed and who KNOWS when i’ll be able to peel myself out of it. hopefully early enough to be productive :-)
oh also i got 2 passes for the season 4 premiere of glee for tomorrow night but i have work and no one is responding to cover my shift!!!! i asked zoe to join me and she’s down / has a car so it works out great except for my freakin’ job. boo.
