Being the naive dreamer I am, I convinced myself that my final semester would be totes easy and a cakewalk. And I'm NGL, for the most part, it has been. But now that the semester is less than 2 weeks from closing, it seems like everything is all due at once.

I have so much work to do =[ This week alone I have:
2 exams
2 papers
2 presentations
2 evaluations related to my internship
1 weekly log entry for my internship
studying for my 2 comprehensive finals

FML. I fucking hate comprehensive finals. One of them for my finance class, which has been steadily destroying GPA and my pride all semester.
Friday I have to fly to D.C. for my sister's graduation, which means my weekend is pretty much shot to hell studying-wise. Plus, my sister is on my shit list atm, which only makes it feel like an even bigger waste of my time.
She and I aren't speaking. I'm sick of her shit, and she can't get enough of her shit. So basically, we just have a difference of opinion about her shit.

Once my finals are through, I will be hosting my family for my graduation on the 15th (only 10 days away!!! holy shit!) and the weekend after that, my parents are throwing my sister and I a joint graduation party.
I'm looking froward to it. Primarily the receiving monies aspect of the whole thing.

I'm excited for summer. I'd really like to take a solo trip to Europe. But what I'm most excited about is doing nothing. Once school is done, and my internship is done, and after the graduations and the party...I just want to STOP, you know? Relax and be useless while I still can, before I enter the land of grown-ups where my soul will crushed forever.

All sources say it's Bono, but every time I look at my iphone, all I see is this.

Hmmm...a few hours after writing my last entry, my World's Best Boss mug mysteriously showed up on the kitchen counter after being MIA for like, 8 months.

Which means that

a) I have The Shinning
b) the universe works in really mysterious, LJ-stalking ways
c) one of my roommies has discovered my LJ
d) the hypotenuse of a right triangle
e) all of the above

I've always realized that it was a very real possibility that someone I know IRL could discover my online journal. I always figured that since only like, 3 people read this thing, the chances of it actually happening were really, really small.
But now that I'm confronted with the (possible) reality of it, I'm a bit weirded out.

At any rate, if one of you is reading this, then please know that comment about you all being lushes...heh, well...

Ok, I totally meant it, but in the best possible way.

Alternate title to this post: The closest my tongue will ever get Conan


I ordered these in late January before Coco went off the air, But for some reason I never got them. I randomly thought of them this morning and decided to check the Fedex tracking and lo and behold! They were apparently delivered a month ago (to the day!), but somehow my leasing office failed to give them to me.
I would be pissed, but the whole situation gave me the opportunity to say something witty and cute to the hot new guy working there so it evens out.

Anyway, like the title says, I shall only use these to take the odd red-headed slut (har har), but otherwise, they will remain on my shelf, gathering dust like the collector's items they are.
These babies will stay in my room, instead of the kitchen, a) because my roommates are lushes, and I don't want these shots glasses to be used, chipped, scratched or broken like the rest of the shot glasses in this apartment, and b) because I'm still not over the one roommate who took my reproduction 'World's Best Boss' coffee mug from The Office when she moved out (bitch stole my shower-curtain rod, too!)

Unfortunately, these probably won't be worth as much in the future as the original black versions of the TSw/Conan shot glasses. They definitely won't be worth as much as the original black TSw/Conan coffee mugs (both of which were long sold out of the NBC store by the time I tried to order them).
I would never, ever, ever sell these in my lifetime, but I'm sure that 50 or 60 years down the road, they will be of some monetary value to my grandchildren the many cats I leave my wealth to.

I lost my pencil bag some time between the end of last term and the start of this one. I feel so lost without it.
Considering everything that has happened with my family in the past month, it feels odd that I should be having such a strong reaction to losing my freaking pencil bag.

I can't reconcile why I feel so out of sorts knowing that my pens and pencils are rolling around willy-nilly inside my purse. I feel 100% more disorganized since it went missing. Also, my pencil bag was really pretty and I can't find another like it (grey with yellow pen and ink-style flowers similar to this). Old Navy doesn't make them anymore apparently. I couldn't even find a picture of the damn thing on Google =[

Heaven help me if I were to somehow lose my whiteboard.

In my Google adventures trying to find a picture of my dearly departed pencil bag, a search of "old navy" + "pouch" brought up this picture:

As per the title, here is a post that is not about tragedy and depressing shit.

I am completely obsessed with this album. I have been listening to it non-stop for the last week.

This is not the type of music I'd ordinarily go for, but my curiosity was piqued after reading a post about it on ONTD. I am so surprised by how much I love this album.

I also downloaded Corinne Bailey Rae's new album, The Sea, the same day. Even though CBR is my girl, I've probably only listened to her album three times all the way through because all I want to listen to is Lungs over and over again.

Thought I'd share my favorite tracks on the album:

Dear Internet,
I have been watching Conan regularly since I was 15 years old. Late night t.v. will not be the same without him. Come back soon, Conan!

Not with the company from my last entry, lol. That ship sailed. And by sailed, I mean sunk like the Titanic.

I interviewed for two different internships this week and was accepted by both! Apparently, I am a hot commodity. LOL.
The second company hired me on the spot. Today, I found out the first company also decided to hire me. I only need one, so I had to turn down the first company since I work on a first come first serve basis. Yep. You snooze you loose.

ROFL. OK, let me stop making an ass of myself.

In all seriousness, I am so happy to have an internship. For a minute I was worried because I have to have one in order to graduate. Yay for not being a crippling disappointment to my family!

I just had a phone interview for an internship position I'm trying to get for this semester.

I totally made a complete idiot of myself =[
