it's not news but i suck at updating

I just thought I would do a quickie update.

I won the primary last week so I am moving on to the November election for county commissioner in district six of oakland county. If you voted for me, thanks. If not and you can, vote in November. Thanks. I'm super pumped for this.

until next time...

public service announcement

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have an announcement to make:

I am running for Oakland County commissioner. If you live in district six and you love me, vote for me.

you are also totally free to laugh at me. I've been laughing about this for weeks.

until next time...

hello livejournal world

I feel like I should post since it's been almost a month. I don't know that I necessarily have anything to say. I'm very excited that school is over and I don't have to think about going to class ever again. Currently, I'm annoyed with my iPod and an alleged bill at Marshall Fields. Also, I got an 85% in participation in my creative writing class. I think that's funny. It would have been funnier if I failed the class. Anyway, I think this is it for me for today. I'm home until tomorrow then perhaps back to Mt. Pleasant. I haven't decided yet.

until next time...

where have i been?

I haven't updated in a while...mostly because I don't have time and a lot because I don't know if I can keep up with the drama that's happening out here. So here it is either way. A list of things that I have been doing lately in no particular order of importance.

1. going to class (!)
2. GSA stuff
3. Pride week (i have a lot of opinions of this but it would definately be a bad idea to list them here.)
4. Drag Show. (had a really good time dressing up like a boy and dancing to N*Sync with Stef, Fifty, Sam Underwood, and Kristen.)
5. event planning class: makes me hate people. specifically my group and the group that did the bridal shower event.
6. Debate: I did my negative debate a couple weeks ago and almost made the girl cry. My affirmative is Tuesday. I plan on the same kind of victory.
7. Creative writing: my class didn't really understand my story which was weird because it was much more straight forward than most of the other stories but whatever. There are still good reasons to go to that class and why it is the only class I like this semester.
8. I am ridiculously bad at doing proofs.
9. Ned Flanders still likes learning too much and Tara Thorne makes me want to vomit. (Yay for my psych grad students.)
10. I'm way behind on a whole lot of homework that is all due this week.
11. Fifi's French Press (formerly Bizarre Bazzar) opened this week and I have been there at least once a day (usually twice) for the since Sunday. If you are in Mt. Pleasant, go and check it out. 203 Broadway, Downtown. You will love it, I promise.

Alright, I want to put a couple songs in here because they make me happy. The first one is Pink,
"Dear Mr. President" and I think it is like one of my favorite songs ever right now.

Dear Mr. PresidentCollapse )

and "You're Beautiful" by James Blunt because lately it makes my heart flutter. (I know I know, that's annoying. You can smack me the next time you see me.)

You're BeautifulCollapse )

until next time...

Spring break.

It is my firm belief that spring break is my favorite break from school. Despite the fact that I was more or less dead on Thursday, the technical start of spring break, I think it's going well so far.

Thursday: was basically dead on my couch. Went to both of my classes, met up with Katie Roof for like thirty seconds, went to dinner with Phil, Dave and Katie Gossett at the Cabin and had a really big drink. Slept until 10:30, cleaned the kitchen, errands, went to visit Phil, pushed Nick and Dave out the door at 2:15, packed, then passed out on the couch.

Friday: Called Nick's advisor at her house (only weird because her husband is one of my current professors) to get her signature for his SCREE application form. Turned in form. Picked up GSA check book from Amy and went to the bank. I took out a lot of money from the GSA account and felt powerful. I drove home for a hair cut at 2. Love my hair cut lots by the way. Went to Royal Oak with Jill and Justin and wandered around for a few hours. Had a pretty uneventful evening...except one thing...but that's another story for a different time.

Saturday: Slept until one then went shopping with my mom and sister. My mom dyed my hair..again then went out with Justin. We went to Pronto, he had a really strong Long Island Iced Tea and I had a really shitty martini. I was upset about it then we went to Starbucks and life was much, much better.

Sunday: quite literally, I didn't change out of my pajamas all day. I woke up at two, lounged around, had a really bad headache, napped from 4 until 5, then watched the Academy Award pre-show stuff. Watched the Oscars, showered, painted my nails, and acted like a girly-girl.

Monday>: Woke up early, did some funeral thank you notes with my mom and made the important decision that when she dies, no one better come to the funeral or send flowers because I don't want to write thank you notes. We went and had lunch with my dad, who took my car to get a front end aliagnment, new tires, and something else fixed. I went shopping for shoes with my mom and some woman almost ran over my head with her cart. What a bitch. Kalae and Nicole came by to play with the puppy and now I'm waiting for Nicky to get here so we can go to A2 to visit Nisco.

tomorrow: Jill, Nicky, and I will go to Lansing, drop off my car for an oil change in Holt and then hang around all day.

Wednesday through Sunday: DC bitches. I'm excited and that's all I have to say about that.

until next time...

home for a couple days.

It's weird to be home on a Sunday and a Monday. It throws off what day of the week it is.

happy birthday kyle. 21...woohooo.

i don't have much to say and this appears to be it.

until next time...

I took the idea from Mindy and Fifty.

Ten things I hate.

10. Being the chair of my event planning group because “I’m not that busy” because I’m not Greek.
09. PSY 336: Industrial/Organizational Psychology. I would advise anyone thinking about this class to not take it. It is extremely dull and is rapidly killing my interest in this particular field of psychology.
08. Bad drivers. I feel like I should be the one who decides who is allowed to have a driver’s license or not.
07. Snow. Not like we have much of it now, but I felt like it should be mentioned.
06. Not being able to remember what I like doing for fun. I can’t remember what I like to do for fun at all nor do I have time to.
05. Almost crying when I looked at my schedule today. Not just for the day but for the next three weeks.
04. Supreme lack of money.
03. Waking up in the morning and trying to get out of my bed. Seriously one of the worst things in the entire world.
02. Chronic insomnia. I am now only running on caffeine.
01. The girls in my group for Event Planning. Lexi, Krista, Audra, Stephanie, Leah, and Pam. They argued with me today about my name not being Jenna. Do I look like a Jenna to anyone?

Ten things I love.

10. The people who give me hope to cling to sanity.
09. GSA, really. Even though it is a lot of work, I really like it and I’m pretty damn sure it makes me happy.
08. The Samantha Underwood and Ben Dotson team. There is something truly funny about both of them and I love it.
07. Politics. I even like both sides just so I always have someone to argue with though I will have to admit there is nothing better than a great conversation with….
06. Liberals. And for that matter, all free thinkers, all those with open minds and all those who realize it is their job as a person in the world to make a difference and make this world a better place.
05. The prospect of graduation.
04. The idea of being able to be like Dave’s roommates, who sit around all day, watch movies, listen to music, play their guitars, or decide to have a craft day in overalls in the living room. I’m insanely jealous of them and that is what I want to be when I grow up.
03. Writing. I love it. That’s it.
02. Reading gossip magazines though I know they have no bearing on my life or the real world for that matter.
01. Spending time with those same people who make me cling to sanity. And by hanging out, I feel like that includes talking on the phone, driving out of one’s way to see each other, text messaging, emails, facebook messages, myspace messages, comments on livejournal, etc. Anything that reminds me that you are still alive and are still my friend that makes me pretty damn happy.
