beautiful girls all over the world
i could be chasing but my time would be wasted
they got nothing on you baby
nothing on you baby
they might say hi and i might say hey
but you shouldn't worry about what they say
cause they got nothing on you baby

You know what the great thing about rich asshole frat boys hitting on your at work is? They leave REALLY big tips.

As if the fact that they're tipping well is going to make me fall head over heels in love with them and do whatever they want.


On the bright side, I made a LOT of money last night. That will pad my savings account nicely. Pepperdine is fucking expensive

Finals are just over a month away. I can't believe the year is almost over already.

I only half-watched the Super Bowl. Does this make me a bad American?

Okay, 1) I'm really not THAT into football. 2) The game was playing at the bar, but I was a little more focused on not punching the asshole who thought it was cute to call me baby and sweetheart all night. 3) I really don't give a flying fuck about the Giants or the Patriots.

In other news, I made some AMAZING tips that night. One nice thing about working in a bar - drunk people LOVE to part with their money.

Having a boyfriend who lives on the other side of the country is really inconvenient when you're horny. Is it pathetic that I'm picking up as many extra shifts as I can at the bar just so I can buy a plane ticket? I swear, if I don't have sex soon, I'm going to burst.

While the rest of you are out partying for Halloween, I will be working. double shift of Saturday and I picked up a shift for pretty much every night this week and next, too. What can I say? I'm a glutton for punishment. Can't wait to see that paycheck, though. The tips alone should be pretty amazing.

I still need to figure out a costume, though. I suppose I should get on that.

Private to Close Friends
I must be out of my fucking mind.

Ethan told me he loved me. Pretty sure he meant it. I sure as hell hope so, because I said it back. And there may have been some kissing. Okay, there may have been a lot of kissing. Before he got on a plane to Chicago.

He lives in fucking NEW YORK CITY! What the fuck was I thinking? A long distance relationship with Ethan Douglass? I must be insane.

Oh, right, and now I have to tell Justin I have to stop seeing him. That's gonna suck.

Private to Justin
Hey... I need to talk to you. Are you busy?

Private to Friends.
Justin took me out again last night. It was just dinner and a movie, but I had a really good time. He's a nice guy.

I took my final exams a couple of weeks ago, but I have been loathe to leave Los Angeles. Granted, Iris and I also haven't found anyone to sublease the apartment, so I may need to stay here all summer. I don't mind, except that it's really expensive. Luckily, I'll have more time to work since I won't have classes to contend with.

What is wrong with me?

I made out with Ethan. With Ethan Douglass! Granted, it was New Years Eve and we had a little champagne, but I was pretty much sober and it seemed like such a good idea at the time.

Have I completely lost my mind? I'm not that girl and I made out with him like some.. skank.

Ugh. I am such an idiot. Why do I keep thinking about it?

I hope everyone is having a good 2011 so far.

Ugh. Boys. Why are they so.. them?

Private to Iris
I made out with Ethan. Ethan!!! What the fuck was I thinking? I am such an idiot.

I swear, I am never drinking again. Who's idea was it to have classes in the morning?

It's going to be weird spending Thanksgiving here in LA, but I can't afford to go home at least I won't be freezing my hot little ass off. Chicago's got be be freezing right about now, but the weather has been pretty nice here. It's weird, actually, but it's a kind of weird I don't mind.

In other news, college is kicking my fucking ass. I don't mind a little hard work, but it's definitely an adjustment juggling all the homework with actual work and finding time to get enough sleep in there, too. I'm looking forward to a weekend off from school. Maybe I'll pick up some extra shifts at the bar

Wednesday October 6; 10pm EST

Being in LA has completely screwed up my internal clock. It's only a two hour time difference, but it was weird for the first few days. Luckily, things have evened out and I've gotten used to being on this coast. Still weird to think it's already tomorrow in New York, though.

In other news, school is going well. It's a great school and Iris and I found a fantastic apartment. It's not in a great neighborhood, but I'm not worried about that. I even got myself a job thanks to her brother's well, they're not married, but they have kids together, but they're not together, so I don't know what you call that friend Abby.

Also, I am definitely a fan of the weather. By this time in Chicago, I'd already be starting to freeze my ass off.

California, here I come!

Weird to believe that I'll be leaving Chicago in about a month, right? Mama's freaking out a little about her "baby" being so far away. I don't know how I'm the baby when Gabi's younger than I am. I guess moms are just weird like that.

In the meantime, I have been working my ass off and I have should have a nice pile of savings. Otherwise known as rent money, because LA is freaking expensive. Maybe I should have picked someplace cheaper I'll still have to find a job out there, of course, but with all the bars and clubs and things, I'm sure I can pick up something.. waitresses or tending bar or whatever. Recommendations of cool places to work welcome, jsyk.

It's 10pm, but I'm suddenly craving a burger. I think I might have to run out and grab one.

Nothing like late decisions, but I think that I have finally settled on Pepperdine as my school of choice. It was a tough decision, but they have a really good program and the idea of living in Los Angeles was pretty tempting. Then I talked it over with Iris and she was leaning towards LA a little, too, so.. voila! Decision made!

Now I am debating between spending my summer in Chicago or heading out there early. There's a summer program I could take a few classes in to get a head start. Los Angeles is expensive, but I've been busting my ass and saving, so I think I could swing it. I don't know, though. A part of me wants to just enjoy this summer with my family before I head off to a new city.

Ethan, what are your plans Ethan, what are your plans for the summer? Will we be seeing you in Chicago again or do I need to have another prom to get you to visit? ;)

I can't believe I'm graduating on Sunday. It's all gone by so fast.

Prom was actually pretty sweet. I had a great date, the music wasn't horribly lame and I didn't get arrested. Which is always a possibility when you go to prom with Ethan Douglass. I'm just sayin.

I spent far too much money on that dress, considering I'll probably never actually wear it again, but once in a lifetime, right?

It was a week ago, though. This means I really need to decide on a college. Somebody pick for me?

Wednesday April 28; 10am CST (Chicago)

Apparently, the fact that graduation is right around the corner means I need to decide on a college. I.. have it narrowed down from eight to four, at least?

I got accepted to eight schools. Emory, Georgia State, University of Illinois, Loyola, Pepperdine, UCLA, NYU and Columbia. Eight schools! All offering me full scholarships. Yes, I did kick ass on the SATs, thankyouverymuch. But how am I supposed to choose between eight?

I think I've at least narrowed it down to UIC, NYU, Emory or Pepperdine. I still have no clue which one I want to go with, though. It's not as though I can actually afford to go visit anywhere but UIC Anyone actually attending any of those schools? Some input might be useful. Not that I'm going to take advice if it's stupid, mind you I have a feeling Gabi won't be happy if I pick someplace far away.

Prom is in four days. This means it's all anyone can talk about. Never mind that we're about to graduate from high school and some people have yet to pick a college what, I have a lot of options to choose from. Getting all dressed up to go to a formal is clearly more important.

That said, I do have a fucking hot dress. I'd put up a picture, but I'd hate to ruin my grand entrance.
