|Writer's Block: Food glorious food
If you could get a free, unlimited supply of one food for life, what would you choose?
Easy question - chocolate. No question about it!

|Writer's Block: Black Friday Steals & Deals
Black Friday is known for its deals and steals. What items are you hoping to find in the stores this Friday?
None, considering I don't shop Black Friday. After years of working it, you couldn't PAY me to go into a store on Black Friday. It's too crazy, too crowded - just all in all too stressful, and when I go shopping, I don't want to be stressed out; I want to relax! Black Friday is not, at least to me, conducive to relaxation.

|Writer's Block: Doh!
What is the dumbest thing you've ever done?
Probably the falling in a hole during drama class... or acidentally dropping my cell phone in a glass of coke. Both were really not smart.

|Stole this from Lunas...
Your Score: Proto-Elamite
You are Proto-Elamite, ancient, glorious and incomprehensible. Absolutely nobody understands a word you say, but they'll always agree to whatever it was anyway, simply because of who you are.
:D That was fun!

|Snatched this from Lunas and Indy...
I don't think it's quite accurate, but okay...
|Your home is a |
| Your kitchen is someplace you never go, because you "have people for that." There's a Chocolatessen, which is rapidly becoming your favorite room of the house. Having one is also becoming a trend among your wealthy neighbors. Your master bedroom is the size of a small barn, with carpet thick enough to reach your ankles. Your study has hardback editions of every classic ever written, plus a special edition of Rich Dad, Poor Dad with the parts you ghost-authored highlighted. One of your garages holds your collection of ferraris, and is measured in acreage. |
Your home also includes a guest wing and private quarters for your servants. Outside is your hedge maze and gardens, meticulously tended by a team of world-class botanists.
And, you have a pet -- a doberman pincer named "Warren".
Below is a snippet of the blueprints:
Find YOUR Dream House!
Will actually write something later... Lots of hugs and kisses to all, and all my love to Ed! I miss you, love, and I love you!

|Really, really gigantic news!
Well, as you have probably all heard me squealing in delight for the past 24 hours and may not know the exact reason why, I am here to make the biggest announcement I have ever made in my life. As of one o'clock in the morning Sunday, August 19, Ed is no longer my boyfriend... He's my fiance! We went for a walk on Pensacola Beach and he asked me... It was so romantic, I can't believe I didn't start crying! We haven't set a date yet and it won't be till he gets back from South Korea, so it'll be a while, but I promise when we've figured out details we'll let you know! Well, I've got to get going, but I'll write more later! Lots of hugs to everyone and even more hugs and lots of kisses to my husband to be! I love you Ed! Current Mood: loved
|Tuesday, July 24th, 2007|
Well, I finally finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows... and I loved it. I won't go into detail, but it was awesome. Not everything turned out the way I thought or hoped but on the whole, it was awesome. There were parts where I would have liked more detail, a little more info... *Cough* The epilogue! *cough* But at least one theory of mine came out right! I will not mention what it is in case anyone is still reading and hasn't gotten there yet, but needless to say, I was pretty excited! Crying like a baby cause the chapter where we get confirmation of my theory is really depressing, but still pretty excited! Anyway, should probably get going, but I'll write more later. Lots of hugs to everyone, and even more hugs and lots of kisses to my wonderful boyfriend, Ed. I love you, Ed!

|Well, wish me luck...
I'm not looking forward to tommorrow. See, I have my LSAT tommorrow at 12:30 in Hattiesburg, Mississippi... I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty nervous. I don't know if I'm going to do very well, and I'm really freaking out. Plus, I just woke up a few minutes ago, I haven't packed yet, and Mom wanted us to leave in about half an hour. I'm a dead woman. I need prayers, thoughts, well-wishes, etc., about this test, ya'll... *hugs everyone in sight* Thanks ya'll! You guys are the best! Lots of hugs to everyone and even more hugs and kisses to Ed! I love you, Ed! Current Mood: anxious

|I did it! I did it! I actually did it! *does her dance of joy*
My grades are all finally in! A-'s in Modern European Lit, American Lit and Film, and Abnormal Psych; A's in Civil Liberties and Performing Shakespeare; and an A+ in Junior Chorale (not that that one is a surprise. If I hadn't gotten an A it would have been more of a surprise)! I'm so happy I could dance... In fact, I think I will! *does her dance of joy again* So yes, semester GPA is 3.831, meaning my cumulative is up to 3.658. *grins* I'm not trying to brag or anything, but I'm really really proud of myself right now - I was so scared that my Civil Liberties final and final paper hadn't gone well and that it would really kill my semester grades, but apparently they both went really well! :) I'm very, very happy right now if you can't tell. I can't wait to tell Ed! *grins* I'm going to try to call him tonight after he gets off work to tell him the good news; plus I want to see how his test went today. Baby, if you're reading this, I hope your P.T. test went well and that you're feeling ok! I hate seeing you hurting... *snuggles you before giving you a kiss on the cheek* Well, I need to go and get lunch, but I'll write more later. Lots of hugs to everyone, and even more hugs and lots of kisses to Ed! I love you, Ed! Current Mood: pleased

|I'm free! I'm free! I'm free! *does a little dance*
Well, finals are finally over, and I think they went really, really well! As of yedsterday Fr. Campbell had posted our grades in Performing Shakespeare and I got an A in the class, so now I just have to worry about my other four classes - although I'm positive they went ok. So now, I'm done with class, and the only thing left is singing at Baccalaureate and Graduation for Choir class - yes, I'm getting graded to sing at the graduation of two of my best friends. I would be there anyway, but my teacher says I have to not only be there but sing as well. Fun! *smirks* I'm only kidding, ya'll know how much I love singing, even if I'm not all that good at it. My Civil Liberties final last night went really well. But what really sucked is I missed my second call from Ed in two days because of the test! He's been trying to get a hold of me for two days now, and I've missed it both times... I hate my timing! (Baby, if you're reading this, I am so sorry I missed you! I tried calling you back and left you a message thinking I had just missed you by a second, but then I checked and it was more like an hour... I felt terrible. I promise if you get a chance to call today, I'll answer, love! *hugs and kisses*)
Well, I probably should go get ready for lunch, but I'll write more later. Lots of hugs to everyone, and even more hugs and lots of kisses to Ed! I love you, Ed!

|One down, three to go!
Well, I just finished my Performing Shakespeare Final; it went really well! I flubbed a couple of lines, but we've only been practicing for a little while, and I was one of like two people trying to do the scene completely off book. And Fr. Campbell said I did really well, so I'm happy. Now I just have to worry about the American Lit and Film test Monday, the Modern European Lit one on Tuesday, and the Civil Liberties test Wednesday night. This is going to be a fun weekend. If you don't see or hear from me, it's because I'm buried up to my neck in books in my dorm. (Lunas, if you're reading this, I am so sorry, but I won't be able to make it home for your graduation tommorrow. I feel terrible... I really hope it goes well, and congratulations! *hugs*)
But in happier news, I've been getting to talk to Ed a lot the past few days! We've gotten to talk every day this week except yesterday. It's been so nice getting to talk to him so much. And guess what? I might be getting to go out to see him at the end of the month! We're trying to work it out so I could go see him over Memorial Day! He has a four day weekend that weekend, so we'd get to spend the whole time together practically. *grins* I'm so excited! It would be so awesome if I got to go out there and see him; I mean, I haven't seen him in almost six months now- and I know I'm probably driving ya'll crazy saying this so much, but I really, really miss him. Well, I need to go work on this paper for Dr. Hamlin, but I'll talk to ya'll later! Lots of hugs to all of you, and even more hugs and lots of kisses to Ed! I love you, Ed. Current Mood: happy but stressed

|Thank goodness it's Friday!
Yesterday was great... I only had one class, I found out that I'm exempt from my Psych class final if I want to be cause I have an A- in the class, and the best part was I got to talk to Ed for 20 minutes! It was great! :D We had such a nice talk about everything- his test on Wednesday, my presentation that same day, everything. *grins* It was awesome! Then again, it's always awesome getting to talk to the person you love. :)
And then today was nice. Class got out early, and then this afternoon I went to a friend's U.S./Latin American Relations class to take notes for her while she took her GRE. It was actually kinda interesting, except it was hard to keep up with teacher since he talked so fast. It was funny- his name is Mr. Cady, so when I told my friend that Cady talked too fast, she heard "Catie," thought I was referring to myself in the third person and got really, really confused. *smirks and laughs* It was hilarious!
Not much else going on here. I should probably get going, but I'll talk to you all later. Lots of hugs to all, and even more hugs and lots of kisses to Ed! I love you, Ed! Current Mood: giddy
|Wednesday, April 25th, 2007|
I'm a little nervous about my presentation tommorrow... I think it'll be ok, but I'm still a little nervous. I'll let you all know how it went when I'm finished. *hugs everyone in sight* Wish me luck, ya'll! And to my wonderfully sweet boyfriend, I just want to congratulate you again on the awesome news from last night and wish you luck on your test in the morning! I'm praying for you, love. *grins* I know you'll do great! *hugs and kisses* I love you, Ed! Current Mood: a wee bit nervous
|Friday, April 20th, 2007|
Well, this has been an interesting morning. I was supposed to go talk to Dr. Litwiller today in her office at 8:30 about the presentation I'm doing next week for COOL Day. My alarm clock didn't go off. I didn't wake up till about 9:00... You can imagine, I was most displeased... *smirks* I'm just glad that she wasn't terribly mad at me; she just asked me when I'd like to reschedule our meeting. :) She really is a sweetheart.
This has been a really stressful, depressing week. Don't worry, I'm okay, just depressed about what happened Monday at Virginia Tech. My prayers go out to all the students, faculty, staff, and families affected.
Well, I should probably get to lunch, but I'll write more later. Happy Birthday Adam! *hugs and then throws confetti at the birthday boy* Lots of hugs to all my friends, and even more hugs and plenty of kisses to Ed! I love you, Ed!

Hello all! I haven't written much lately, and I realized I need to fix that! Not much going on here. It's been a relaxing but not very eventful week. I've been getting to talk to some friends - Lily's called a couple of times, and I talked to Amy this afternoon, and I'm planning on calling Indy and Lunas, Steph, and Veronica tonight and tommorrow. But the best part of this week was that I've gotten to talk to Ed twice so far! :D I love that boy so much, and hearing his voice just makes me so happy. Every time I hear that ringtone I have set for him on my cell phone I get butterflies in my stomach, that's how happy I am. I just sent him my first care package; I hope he likes it... I'm not going to say what all I put in it, cause I want him to be surprised, but I hope he likes it! Other than that, there's really not much up. I should probably get going and work on some stuff around the house, but I'll write more later. Lots of hugs to all my friends, and even more hugs and kisses to Ed. I love you, Ed! Current Mood: giddy

|What Be Your Nerd Type? |
Your Result: Drama Nerd
You sure do love the spotlight and probably have a very out-going and loud personality. Or not. That's just a stereotype, of course. Participation in the theatre is something to be very proud of. Whether you have a great voice for musicals, or astounding skills for dramas/comedies; keep up the good work. We need more entertainment these days that isn't television and video games (not that these things are bad, necessarily.)
|What Be Your Nerd Type?|
Quizzes for MySpace
Yes, yes, I am a drama geek. *grins* And proud of it!
Anyway, need to get back to homework. Wish me luck. I have a paper due in two hours and I'm not done...
Lots of hugs to all, and even more to Ed. I love you, Ed!

Well, that weekend was entirely too short... And now I have to worry about housing sign ups for next year. I really hope that I get the room I want. They're completely renovating one of the old buildings, turning it into just single rooms, and they look like they're going to be really nice. Plus, Steph and Veronica are both going to be living there hopefully, so yeah, I'm really hoping I'll get into this building. Not much happened this weekend, but it was still fabulous. I got to talk to Ed yesterday, so I'm happy. :D Joyous would probably be a better word. I might even go so far as to say giddy. *grins* Yes, giddy would probably be the best way of describing it. We only got to talk for about 20 minutes, but it was the best 20 minutes of my entire weekend. :) Well, need to go talk to my American Lit and Film teacher to see if there is any possibility of him letting those of us who will be seniors next semester out early from class to go to housing sign ups. (Class gets out at 3:45, housing starts at 4:00, and people start lining up really early... If I don't get a good spot in line, I might not get a room, and that would not be cool.) Wish me luck, ya'll! Lots of hugs to everyone, and even more to my sweetheart, Ed. I love you, Ed! Current Mood: giddy

*grins* Well, tonight's been really nice. Indy, Steph, Veronica, Lily and I got together for pizza. We had a really fun talk, and the pizza was really good. It was awesome. And Ed called! *beams* He called during our pizza party, so I left for about half an hour so I could talk to him. It was great talking to him. We were just talking about school and what's going on on his base. He was doing some errands off base this afternoon and decided to give me a call. It was so much fun! And he's been getting my letters, so I'm happy. I got to tell him all about my classes for next semester and to tell him my good news about my Civil Liberties test that he'd been trying to keep me calm about and my paper for Modern European Lit. He'd been trying to tell me that I was going to do fine on both, and he was right. :) 90 on the test and an A on the paper. I was really proud, and I couldn't wait to tell him. He was really happy for me. He's starting his classes on Monday; I just know he's going to do great! *grins* (If you're seeing this, love, I just want to say good luck! *hugs Ed* I know you're going to do great. I'm so proud of you, sweetie!)
The past few days have been really busy. I went to class advising with Dr. Swender, talked to Dr. Hamlin about my LSAT and other random stuff, and made my proposal for my COOL Day presentation. And that was just Thursday afternoon! *smirks* Yesterday I went to the mall with Indy, Steph and Veronica to do random shopping. We had so much fun; Indy and I spent a long time at the Disney Store, while Steph and Veronica went to other stores.
And Wednesday I did something for homework I never thought I would have to do for an assignment. For you see, my Abnormal Psych professor made us go to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting as part of our unit on Substance-Use related disorders... I totally felt like I was intruding on the privacy of the people at the meeting. I mean, the open meetings are literally open to anybody, but still I felt like I had no right to be there, you know? Everybody was really sweet but I still felt like I was invading their privacy.
Other than that though, this has been a good week. I'm so happy. I've gotten to hang out with my friends, my classes are going well, and the best thing of all, I've gotten to talk to the guy I love a lot. Life is very, very good! :) Well, it's getting kind of late, so I should probably get going, but I'll write more later. Lots of love to everyone, and even more love to my sweetheart, Pvt. Ed Valois! Current Mood: giddy
|Wednesday, March 14th, 2007|
Added to my joy from yesterday evening, I found out this morning that I got a 98 on my Psych test! I only missed one question! *dances* Now I'm just worried about that Civil Liberties midterm... Hopefully we'll be getting it back tommorrow... or should I say later today, considering it's after midnight...
Well, considering I have to be up in a couple of hours to try to track down the girl who said she'd drive me to that meeting I'm supposed to be going to for my psych class this morning at 8:30, I should probably be getting to bed. I hope I'll be able to track her down, cause this assignment needs to get done before Thursday at 11:15.
Anyway, need sleep, but I'll write more later. Lots of love to all, and even more love to Ed!

|*bounces in doing an even more exhuberant than normal version of her patented dance of joy*
I just got to talk to Ed for a full half hour! :D I'm so happy, I could squeal. In fact, I'm shocked I didn't... Well, actually, I *might* have, but to spare his ears I made sure it was before I picked up the phone. *laughs* Though, then again, knowing my voice and vocal range he probably still heard it all the way out in Arizona... *smirks* Anyway, I called him earlier, and his phone was off, so I left him a message, you know, just letting him know I'm thinking about him, that I miss him. Turns out he's out in the field and will be for another few days, so while they were doing their training he couldn't very well have his phone on, which is what I expected was happening. But, anyway, he called me when he got back to his tent and saw that I called. We got to talk for a whole half hour... We haven't gotten to talk for that long in so long; I'm giddy. And the reception was perfect, it didn't cut out once! *is ecstatic* I don't mean to bother ya'll with my exclamations of glee, but I'm just so happy right now. I miss him so much, it's scary, and just hearing his voice has made this the best day I've had in a while. :)
In other news, for anyone who doesn't know, I had two papers due today, one for American Lit and Film, the other for Modern European Lit. There was a bit of a frazzled nature to the approach to writing these papers, but I'm happy to report that I think they were both really good. I just hope Haffner and Kaffer share my opinion. *grins* If they don't, well, I have at least two more papers to write in each class plus the final exams, and if there's one thing I've learned in the past few years, it's that I'm a reasonably good test taker. Which reminds me, I should be getting my Abnormal Psych test back in approximately 11 hours. Wish me luck!
Meanwhile, I should probably be getting ready for bed, I didn't sleep too well last night. I'll write more later though. Lots of love to everyone, and even more love to my sweetheart, Ed! (P.S. I know you won't get to see this for another couple days, and that's if your computer's working, but I hope your class goes okay on Monday, Ed! *grins proudly* I know you'll do great. *hugs and kisses* I love you, Ed!)
