I miss my friends so much. Talking with Liz now- haven't talked to her in months and she was one of my closest childhood friends. She's going to Times Square tomorrow with the other girls - I missss them. I want to go!! Why do they have to be all the way over on the east coast?

Yesterday the girls got together and went to lunch. Haha I just heard all about it- its always been the 4 of us but now I feel so left out. Its so hard to keep in touch with them during the school year. Liz is involved w/ the Navy & her sorority all the time, Steph is David!David!David! 24/7 & Laura goes to Princeton so she has a lot to deal with too. But during the holidays they always get together, have girls nights out- just like old times.

I have lots of high school friends here too & they're all going out tomorrow night too but its just not the same. The last time I went back to CT (summer 2001) I had soo much fun. I want to go visit again.

In other news, I'm getting a new livejournal for 2003. Will keep you posted.

You guys I'm sorry but I have to do a little LJ friends list clean up. I just don't have time to read everyone. I'm going to take out a fairly substantial portion of my list- just leaving some of my offline friends and close online acquaintances. I feel bad about taking people off but please don't be insulted. Most of my entries are public so if you still want to read me, you can keep me on (or you can take me off if you wish).

It occured to me recently that I don't really know what I am doing as an pre-economics major. I don't really like economics. I don't really like reading the Wall Street Journal & I definately don't want to take financial accounting. Why do I want to go into a business related field again? ummmm lifestlye maybe? But in this icky economy I don't even know about that...

So.. I don't really know what I want to do. Another thought that I've kept in the back of my mind for a long time was dermatology. Pros: its relatively clean, I can choose to go either way w/ surgery, cancer etc (probably not) or cosmetics (probably yes), and it pays well. Cons: chemistry. Ugh I'm always swinging between medical school & law school but grrr I hate chemistry. Scary scary- I hate being so indecisive!!

C H I C A G O!

Dug around and found my small photography collection of Chicago I took late 2001. It was on my site for a while last year before I took it off to revamp my photography section. Haha it never went up again. Its only 8 pictures but I'm in the middle of putting up the Seattle gallery so more coming soon (maybe). If anyone wants to buy me tickets to Chicago, I'll gladly go and take more pictures :) I love urban architecture!

UPDATE: no one told me that there was a massive broken link:( well you can all see the last picture now :)

Home finally!! My dad's sleeping.. my mom's watching telly, my bro is doing homework (haha!) and I.. finally bought the shoes (in camel- more practical than the blue)!!!! YAY. no more obsessing over them now and it will be a nice surprise to get them when I go back to school.

So winds here are 60mph and picking up :( There was a massive power outage and there were no functioning red/green lights. Haha that is always an adventure.

Guess I'll work on my Rome application now. Hope I get in!

Updating at my dad's office. I'm just sitting here waiting until he's ready to go home. He feels so miserable :( I think the pain killers (yup hes on more than one) are making him nauseaous. Well he's sleeping in his chair- haha- I'm so bored I have nothing to do. La la la.. I want to go see Chicago and I also want to buy those shoes. I have to go to the bank today before the storm b/c otherwise if I buy them I'll only have 20cents left in my bank account. I wish my dad would wake up - he'd be a lot comfortable in his bed than in his office chair.

I miss my uni friends a lot. Last night Myra called for 2 hours yaaaay. I was totally not expecting her to call- so good to hear from her. I want to call Elissa, la la la I'm so bored.

I always update LJ so much during hoildays because I'm so bored. I stayed home today and read a bunch, listend to some opera.. I loooooooooove Angela Gheorghiu. i left my Norah Jones CD in my laptop :( and my mom has my laptop :( Oh well, I am off to watch Entertainment Tonight because I love celebrity gossip. Haha.

On a sad note- my dad is so sick :( He had to go to the ER at 5am Christmas morning and he's at the doctors again now trying to get a perscription for Oxycontin :( He was on Endocet and it wasn't helping- he had to take pills every 2 hours b/c he couldn't tolerate the pain for 6 hours :( Pain killers are so scary. I don't like them. Last night he actaully called a family friend Dr Katz whose a neurologist from Connecticut to quickly call in some medication. I was reading his perscription labels and was surprised to see that. Poor dad :( I hope he gets better soon. He has varicella-zoster :( I hope I don't get the chicken pox. I've never gotten it before and apparently I could get it from being too close to him :(

My mom sent me on an errand... to the mall. Haha. That was so fun. I only had an hour and half but I am capable of doing a lot of damange in only a little time :) First I hit Nordstrom where I returned some stuff for her and bought her another bottle of Serum de la Mer. Then I went to Sephora, bought late Christmas gifts for Anna & Cindy, an eyelash curler, this pedicure thing and Shiseido Pureness Pore Mask. Yay for retail therapy.

It was so nice to be out driving today- such a beautiful day in Seattle. Its supposed to start storming tonight so I was glad I had the chance to drive around in the sun. But everyone and their mother was at the mall. God it was such a pain trying to find a parking spot and I almost hit a woman :( I am such a hazard omg it was so scary. I love going fast though. Oh the way home I hit 90 on the freeway but then I got scared that I would get pulled over for reckless so I slowed down. Haha. I want to have the highway all to myself.

omg writing so many product reviews .. wanted to get them all up tonight but I have like 10 more to write and I'm sooo lazy so they will just have to wait.

Had a quiet but decent Christmas. Listening to Norah Jones & drinking coffee. Hmm I will drink coffee at any time of the day. La la la.. so for Christmas I got my favorite moiseturizer (Lancome Vinefit SPF15), coffee (yay!) and diamond earrings. Eww I didn't even want to the diamonds at first but now I decided that since my new years resolution is to put more glamour into my life, i might as well keep them. haha!!

hope everyone had a merry christmas!!

Ugh SATC is such a bad, bad influence on me. Everytime Carrie feels bad on the show she goes and buys some shoes even when she's completely broke. Combine that with how bad I've been feeling today and yup: shoes!!.. haven't bought them yet. Going to wait a week until I get a paycheck- so there is still time to stop me!!

ugh!! i am the worst rebel ever. i always end up forgiving my parents no matter how angry i might have been at the moment. im sure that when i go home and see my mom's dumb face and her attitude I'll get mad again- but now I just can't bear to return their Christmas presents even though I'm only 20 minutes away from Nordstrom. Ugh. How come I can never stay mad at them for long enough?

God its soooo freakishly quiet in the office. it is freaking me out. All the middle/upper management people, i guess, are taking the day off. Scary... maybe I will leave early. But leaving early means going home. Fuck, I'd rather stay at the office.

O p a l e s c e n t has a new layout!! Its soooo simple that its embarrassing but I needed something new. I had planned on a lot of content for opalescent and I'm still working on the various projects that I hope to have but I need a shell to work off of. My first project is to completely update my beauty product reviews. Gahh I am soo behind. Hopefully that will be up soon-ish.

And good news!! I am almost ready to unveil my other project w/ Nina!! YAY.

P.S. i tried to update my bio at opalescent but i got tired in the middle of it so the 2nd half of my bio is a list. haha. I will update my bio later.

Yay. Another early morning at the office on Christmas Eve Eve :) Have only been here for 3 hours yet feel like I'm already out of work to do. Hum. Perhaps that is because half the office is already out for their holiday breaks. Well, I work tomorrow and perhaps the 26th. We will see.

I got a 3.6 in history :( Well that was the highest I could have gotten in the class because of my stupid paper grade. I had a 4.0 on everything else but um that paper grade was 45% of my grade and so that blows but whatever. Since I slept through most of the lectures, I'll just consider my 3.6 payback for not paying attention. But now I need a 3.8 in econ so I better get that or else my holidays are over.

Bought Norah Jones CD yesterday (finally) and fell asleep listening to The Nearness of You. Woke up at 4am to find my laptop still on my bed... hmm. I was surprised that I hadn't managed to kick it off yet. Watched part of Amelie- lovely movie. I can't wait to finish it tonight.

My mom said she'd buy me this if I get a 4.0 next quarter and my dad said he'd buy me a digital camera. I wonder if he still remembers. He seems to have selective amnesia when it comes to buying me stuff. Nothing like the promise of material accumulation to motivate me to do well. Mmm I love electronic gadget things. But I feel like one of those kids who I always laughed at, who had to be bribed to do well in school. Haha. I guess I am one of them now but my philosophy is that the means don't really matter- its the end results that matter.

So I was thinking about where outside of the US I would like to live. Now, to travel or study I would go almost anywhere. But to settle down and live for a while, I think that outside of the US I would only live in London or Shanghai. Maybe Hong Kong. I surprised myself by how few places I would like to be for long term... guess I love being in the US too much to leave it for good but I would like to have the opportunity to work in both London and Shanghai for a couple years or so.

Being called off to do some major work. Tata!

Everything is always so perfect around the holidays. That is why I love December so much because this month has been nothing less than fabulous. I'm sitting here on my bed, in my pajamas, surrounded by my books and magazines, wrapping paper and gifts, listening to good Christmas music (Where are you at Christmas - haha) and finishing my sandwich (where I got at Nordstrom of all places- hehe). Today was so fun! Despite some communication problems, Marian and I made it downtown by 4:30 (4 hours after we'd originally planned to arrive) and caught the 4:50 showing of Two Week's Notice. What a cute movie!! It was so adorable. I really liked it; partly because I love Hugh Grant, partly because they had fabulous cinematography of New York, and partly because the plot was way cute. So afterwards, we went shopping. Actaully, I went shopping and just dragged poor Marian along. She was so cold too :( and she stopped so I could take random pictures like every 10 minutes. But I got great pictures of downtown Seattle during Christmas including 5 pictures of Tiffany's, 3 of Nordstrom, and 2 of the Bon star. Will post later after I develop them. Marian got some on her digital camera too so maybe I'll steal a few from her. Hehe!! Went to Nordstrom and got my dad this moiseturizer from Philosophy. It was a freaking expensive bottle of moiseturizer so he better like it! And I got my mom handcream from H2O and my baby bro a Harry Potter Deluxe Journal w/ light because he decided recently that he wanted to start a journal. Right...

Speaking of journals, I found my 6th grade diary. Oh the stuff in there are so funny:

ramblings of a sixth graderCollapse )

I wonder if there’s an office party or something? I seem to be the only one sitting here working and its only 3:45. Hmm.

Well. . . this morning I went back to my high school, visited teachers and friends. Yay it was so fun. Caught up with the gossip and talked with my favorite teachers. That was fun. Then I took the bus out and came to work. Tomorrow I’m going downtown (yay!) to watch a movie & go shopping & walk around. Which reminds me that today while I was changing busses on 4th Ave I walked into Tullys for a sandwich and walked out with the cutests glass coffee mug. It says ‘Warmest Wishes. Tully’s Coffee” in burgundy and gold.
