Current Music: silence
I have no idea what the $%^& was wrong with Kyle's computer. It is all sorts of $%^&ed up. I couldn't access disk management, device manager, or any of the network functions. It told me I had to go turn some service on, and when I did it did not start. What the hell... I tried USB hard drive, a switch, remote desktop, and even the cd burner (which ALSO boggled my mind). NOTHING worked. I finally gave up around 1:30 and told Kyle he'd have to hook up the hard drive to another computer and get the files that way. The stupid thing didnt even have an IP address.... and when I tried /release & /renew and yelled at me.... so frustrating!

Current Music: Switch - Will Smith
So I was in DC this week to look at apartments... what work! This growing up thing is weird, I am not sure if I like it. Well I think I found the apartment I will be living in for at least a year. It is really close to the metro.. which is very good! I would even get my own bathroom! NUTS?! People seem so shocked when I tell them how much rent will be... but that's exactly how much I would be paying for a studio.... people dont' seem to realize that Buffalo has a slightly lower cost of living than the DC area....
It is very surreal knowing that I will be livin there. I can go do my homework at the Jefferson Memorial or spend weekends at the Mall (no not shopping... jeez). I can't wait to not use my car as much, I think I will be spending more time on the metro than anything else. Thank goodness for my my MP3 player!
Kyle cut his hair. He never told me, and I see him for the first time tonight and bam... there's no dreadlocks. It was weird. I acted like I didn't notice because I knew that would confuse him... ha ha, ain't gettin the better or me! :) Actually, now he looks like how he did in high school..... yeah wurd. All I know is that I don't ever want to lose him as a friend and with all the shit thats going on I'm afraid thats going to happen. Thats not good.
I am sure everything will work out, it always seems to somehow.

Current Music: Circles - Soul Coughing
Whee for fun stuff happening! I finally graduated from Hilbert. Of course my mom had to embarass me when I got my diploma... but whatever, I was happy. The we went to Shogun, oh my goodness best Sushi EVER. Then I went out with Mads and Mary and we ripped it up at some parties. I am SO bad at asshole... its not even funny!
I put up an ad at craigslist.com about my need for a roommate and holy cow I have gotten so many replies! It's pretty great knowing that there are other people like me looking for people to live with. A couple sound really promising. Going to DC this time is going to very stressful in the fact I got lotsa stuff to do... but I know I will have fun!

Current Music: BYOB - System of a Down
So I was running at the gym today, and when i start to feel tired and wanting to quit I think of having this super awesome body and having certain people regret certain decisions. Then I started to wonder, do I run because I want these people to notice me? Am I doing it for them? Obviously I did not like this idea (I did keep running though... did a 5k), because it just shows them having power over me. What a depressing thought! I decided this was not true, I want to look my my best and if these people do notice and do think 'damn she's lookin great', then even better...
Donny is so great. He makes me feel better. At my job I wear shorts, and they can be a little revealing if I am not paying attention. Well we were closing up and I was reaching over to close a window, and... well Donny got a peek at my behind. He's like, "Oh my god Mel... I just saw your bum! Damn!"I told him as long as he liked what he saw than I wouldnt be mad. Lol it's such a good thing I'm not uptight...but then I guess I wouldn't be wearing those shorts if I was. It's nice working with all the gang again (although I have not yet worked with Joel yet... very sad), but I still miss the wetstone gang. I would like to think we would keep in touch... but I don't know.

Current Music: Dancing Nancies - Dave Matthews <~~ NOT a misprint
Yeah I saw a Dave Matthews cover band at quad party... really liked them so I figured I might as well give Dave Matthews a shot. I haven't really listened them to then since high school, and I hated them because all the stupid cool kids listened to them. Wonderfully I have grown past that , and am willing to give it another go. I can see myself on some grassy hill slightly tipsy dancing to this music... hopefully some good looking guy dancing with me :)
I saw Mary today, it was so great to see her and talk to her. Its awesome how some people you just pick up right where you left off, like you never left. That's an awesome feeling.
I have mad many a discussion/internal dialogue on certain topics, and I feel that I am doing allright on my current path. I am sure I am going to cave in soon, ha ha... but damn it I'm going to try and hold out! Who knows whats going out or whats going to happen, but hey I guess that's life eh? Keeps me on my toes thats for sure!
