geminigirl posted a response to my post last night, stating that i sound so much happier here and now, than i ever did in phoenix.

to prove the fact that i am, indeed, in a better place, i bring you a post from september 10, 2001! egads, i was morbid. and this was even a year before the BIG depression. if you're REALLY bored and haven't read enough blather about 9/11, you can read the next day, too. i was a travel agent in phoenix during the attacks, didn't know anyone there personally. i wasn't even going to talk about 9/11 or make mention of it, but since it turns out it's the very next entry..

egads, i'm FREEZING. 53 degrees outside? i thought i could withstand lower than that! i must be slipping.

and now the TRUE reason for getting up uber early - a fellow nursing student pointed out last night that i can get my school books on amazon or half.com for way cheaper than at the bookstore, AND i don't have to get dressed! amazing.

it's also weird to me that i've been out of school for a MONTH. i keep obsessively checking my online student schedule to ensure that i am, indeed, registered.

i believe it is currently 70 so degrees outside
of my lovely long island suburban home
and i am shivering

i am making my mother bring me down a blanket
so i can sit in front of my computer
wrapped up in a cacoon of knitted warmth
looking like a 60 year old woman..

prehaps i will knit something. just for affect.

ooh, and thank you again for reminding me that i need to get ORGANIZED before i get back to school, including putting together a knitting nook to hold my yarn and doo dads so i can feel more productive whilst at home! (though i'm certain that playing less video games would certainly help.)

haha a knitting nook? you are the cutest thing!
i just recently picked up knitting..i think it's fabulous hobby. although i'm not quite GOOD at it (my mom can prove this as she is forced to wear a wad of colored yarn around her neck each winter... a sad excuse for a scarf) a friend bought me knitting for dummies (or..as he so eloquently replaced with a sharpie..for fags) so i might do well this year.
organization is hard. i wish you luck..for i have none.

p.s you said do dads. i laughed very hard

You must have been pretty depressed.

*hugs*

It seems as though you went and did a friends cut back then.. i saw a few comments from friends of yours that I recognize from current comments in your journal. I am curious.. is your friends list changed quite a bit since 2001? If so, what are the differences in your friends now.. and your friends then?

i think at the time i posted that, i had like 60 people on my friends list, which is so funny to imagine, as i've had over 200 at LEAST for the last 3 years or so. some of the people have stuck on my friends list for forEVER, even stuck with me through when i would post inane posts 8 times a day and in a format that makes me CRINGE now. i cannot stand to read my old posts, sometimes, just because of my writing style.

i would also say that - script aside, as i haven't gotten to know any of them yet - my friends list has been pretty solid, for the most part, for the last 9 months. i had almost no people delete me in all that time, which makes me feel loved. i felt confident with my little circle of friends. so why did i run the script? again, a curiosity.

overall, too - script aside - my friends list more recently is more befitting to ME. a lot of the people that i had on my friends list back in The Day were just people i saw around a lot and added willy nilly, so i ended up with a TON Of young teenagers and people that really didn't fit my personality or lifestyle well. i eventually deleted everyone off that wasn't 18 or older - i don't care how mature you are, they didn't need to read about my daily drunken escapades (i used to drink A LOT.)

I had forgotten you ran that script.

I guess the reason why I thought to ask about your friends.. is cause I have found that sometimes having the right supporting 'cast' can make all the difference in the world.

oh, absolutely. i believe that i am today in a large part for the close relationships that i've made online. i'm truly blessed. part of me is a bit sad that i decided to run the script on this journal, but i know that i've met wonderful people by putting myself out there, so...

who knows.

but thank you for being here :)

Yeah.. who knows.. that script just seems so 'random'. the only thing about it that might be good is you might catch some people who like to 'post' regularly.

I'm glad to be here. I'm glad to call you friend.

Did you get my txt pages?

Sep. 11th, 2006 04:39 am (UTC)
which ones? i got home a bit ago and haven't made it back over to my phone yet, though i heard it doing something!

i'm stiff, sore, and lazy. good thing for me, i don't have to pee ;)

one thing about the script that surprised me, was that i did end up with a lot of new friends that were in their 30's, too, which is nice. i was afraid it would be only just teensters.

For some reason I feel like I've told you this before. It's probably in a comment that you'll get to in another six months or so :-p

Re: Half.com
ha ha, i remember you telling me, you're the whole reason i went there! i ended up getting two of my books (ear training and psych) from there, but i couldn't discern for the life of me whether the book i needed (vol i, not vol ii) for music theory was what was listed (they just had the title, not the volume), and as it was only $5 cheaper than having clark ship it to me.... i need to go down there tomorrow, anyway, to get my new bus pass, so i'll just buy it then.

thanks again!

hee hee. it's amazing, to me, how my writing style has changed so much over the years. when i started livejournal (with aubreystar, feb 2001), i was 26 years old and wrote, to me, like a 13 year old. i would like to THINK that i've improved some, though i still never capitalize things properly!

Phoenix sux, I've lived in Az most of my life, i'm escaping within the next year sometime, hopefully much sooner than that. i despise this place... Congrats on escaping.

I escaped once, for a few months, and was happier than i'd been for years, ended up getting called back, had to help out some friends, and several years later still pining for a place that was within a couple of hours drive to the ocean, and had this growy green stuff that came out of the ground, it was fascinating, lol.

i had ended up in phoenix on an accident (long story), and had started literally from just two small duffle bags (i remember i had very little clothes, a couple of books, my tapes/cd's, a teeny boombox, and my playstation.) i then created my life/career/friends circle there for almost eight years. i made the decision to move back up here only about 2 weeks before i left town, and it was one of thee hardest things that i ever did.

part of me wonders why i took so long to move back, but i think that i couldn't have appreciated this place as much if i had done so earlier.

AND TRUE AUTUMN, OH MY GAW. october is officially my favorite month now.

I was so strung out during that time too, that was when my mom broke her ankle, I had no job and was just cleaning house and making meals all day. It pretty much proved the fact that being a stay at home wife would be out of the question for me. I was SO unhappy.

i'm glad that you're in a better place now ;) though, when i say that, it makes it sound like you never survived, oh my doodness!

i could never be a stay at home mom, either. i always joke about how i would love a good male "wife" - i hate cooking (and suck at it) and cleaning, though i love working and working HARD.

i'm all sore this evening from aggresively doing freight :D

On September 10, 2001, I posted a list of countries I wanted to visit.

The following spring, I visited five of them.
