And then the heavens opened up

When I hear somebody sigh, "Life is hard," I am always tempted to ask, "Compared to what?"
-Sydney J. Harris

Good point.

The big news of the moment is this whole permanent lj account sale taking place from June 7-8. This means that I would have space for 50 icons and I would never have to pay for my livejournal again. The price? $150. Eesh. Let's think about this for a second. $25 a year for a paid account. To get me through college, it would be $100. So basically, I'd be paying for 6 years worth of lj time in one payment, and I'd never have to pay again. I just really hate to give up that kind of money, though. It's a lot to give up in one shot. Plus, I just paid them $15 for six months the other day. *sigh* I don't know. I only have the 24 hour window to do it. I guess I'll just think about it for a while. Being a permanent member would be so cool...and I am totally devoted/addicted to this website (too bad I don't live in the Bay Area, I would so be asking for a job). So we'll see.

It's raining like crazy outside. Hm. Nice day to be indoors. Unfortunately, I have to leave for a doctor's appointment in about an hour. But I'm very very excited about tonight because Karli and I are going to see The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants! Yay! And I think Rach and Kat said they'd like to see it tomorrow, so it's going to be a sisterhood week for me. :) I've been looking so forward to this movie for MONTHS. Now it's finally here! The trailer keeps quoting these rave reviews, so I'm enthused. Yayyyyyyy!

So I've been talking to this girl who is going to be in Reynolds Hall with me at FSU. Her name is Janean, and I really like her. We have a lot in common, and we've been talking about everything from family to movies on IM for the past few days. I'm hoping we'll become good friends. I think we will. I'm also talking to this other girl, Nikki, who is going to be in Reynolds as well. Plus I met Kelly, who is going to be next door in Bryan Hall and has the same views as me about drinking and drugs (we don't need them to have a good time!). Yay! I think this will be okay after all. I can only imagine how the people who are going to college without people they know are feeling. I am so lucky to have Rach and Kat and Mike, even. At least I have some people from home that I love and that love me. It's all going to be okay.

I checked to see if interns had to be on-site the other day when the "we're hiring" notice first popped up.

Plus, they might even give you the permanent account for free. And I don't usually talk like this, but that would be pimp.

P.S. ♥ the icon.

Ash, My love!
I wish you wouldn't have said anything about a permanent account. LOL. Ever since I first read about them, I wanted one. And now that they're opening them.. Lol.. well.. I might just be crazy enough to spend it.. lol... (Gnar1ykarli = UberLJNerd)

I'm excited too! LOL.. I got off work early cuz of the stupid rain, and now i'm sitting at home, staring at the clock, saying.. Come on... 6 hours to go.. 5 hours and 59 minutes.. 58.. 57.. LOL

And I'm glad you're meeting LJ friends for College. That's so great! I'm soo happy that you're off to start a new portion of your life. I really hope it brings you all the happiness that you deserve (and you DO deserve it!) -- However, I will miss you dearly. Just think - Permanent membership - one step closer to Karli. LOL - Cuz she'll get one right there with you!

KMac, my darling!
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy...we're going to the movies in less than 3 hours! LOL. Can't wait, and I'm so glad I'm seeing it with you. It's about time we did something outside of school (well, you came to my party, but that was different).

I think I might spring for it, too...aaaaaaahhhhhhh. I have the money because of graduation...it's not that...but damn. I know it's a good deal but the idea of $150 being gone just like that...ick. I'll think it over some more. If I still feel like this on June 7, I'll know it's not the right thing to do. It would be fun if we both took the plunge, though! Think of all the lj icons...*drools*

as far as going straight edge, thats great although it can be very hard to keep at, its best if u never try to lie about why u dont drink/smoke/do drugs, if ppl know the real reasons they will respect u more, but dont let the straight edge lead u down the dark path to emo music lol, id have to deny knowing u at that point

Oh, I'm not edge. That's way different than what I am. I just have to be a certain way for a while for my own personal reasons.

LOL, dark emo music is totally not my thing.

and mike, even? wtf. i'm rick james BITCH. i like lesbians. for real man I like lesbians. this girl Kelly sounds like oodles of fun. Down with drugs and alcohol yay. just kidding. but honestly all i did at orientation was smoke pot. i don't need it to have a good time but it's summertime and the weather is hot. i would get a permanent account to phone in my posts like Dan does. that shit is awesome and i'm lazy. I outlined the rest of our play. we need to get together SOON. call me or whatever. i'm gettin no love.

You know I love you! I just wanted to piss you off and get you to comment. And it worked, didn't it my little Cheech Marin?

We must get together...Rach and Kat suggested the four of us going out for Thai food...our little FSU group. You in?

♥ ♥ ♥ *HUGS* *KISS*

Do you feel loved now?

P.S. I put my L Word lesbian icon on this just for you. That's how much I love you.
