Time and sand...
both of which I've had little of this summer. I told myself I would find time to go to the beach at least a couple of times this summer to go swim and body board, but how many times has it happened? Zero.

I've had little time to spend with my friends lately, and I'm about ready to cry.

On a happy note, my summer session is less than a week away from finishing. Then I have a whole week of summer to enjoy before my fall classes start up again.

School is officialy kicking my ass. I have no life. On the other hand, I'm almost done with my first "quarter."

Whew...
It's been a long, wild ride as of late!

For those of you who don't know, I'll be starting school again at UCSD the 20th of this month. I'm excited and a little bit scared, but I guess that is to be expected. I'll feel much more at ease when I go to the orientation. A part of me still thinks they made some mistake in accepting me into the program, but that doubt finally seems to be in remission.

In other paramount news, my love life is still just as wonderful as ever. We both try and find whatever time we have free to spend with one another, and miss each other when we're apart. This is what love should feel like...where a lifetime of being together isn't nearly long enough to share all the experiences and do all the things you want to do together. (And just plain be together, of course.)

Most importantly, he likes my cat...and my cat approves of him.

Mmmm...time for a nice run. :)

P.S. (Yes, I was kidding about the cat part...)

In about 15 minutes...
I will be 23. My bf is pretty sick though, which is sad because we won't be able to make it out to 6 Flags as planned. I hope at least I'll be able to see him for a bit tomorrow, but things are tentative yet.

Overall, things are going great for me. I'm almost a little bit scared to turn 23, for fear that this coming year will be worse than the last. I doubt it though.

Ah, well. I guess I don't really have anything important to say. (Big shocker there...) I just hope my 23rd year is as great as my 22nd.

...floating...
Yesterday was the best Easter I've ever had. I have never been so utterly devoted to, cheesy, and in love with anyone in my entire life. Just like a good friend said, "This is it. This is what the best days of your life are made out of."

I just hope all this is real, and I don't wake up tomorrow morning with the bitterness of it having been the sweetest and most intangible dream I ever had.

As Good As You've Been to This World
Live your loving life,
Live it all the best you can
And if you pay no attention darling
To what you might ever hear from your man,
I think you're just like a servant
And try to keep it all to yourself.
Don't you know it makes the world go round,
You gotta go and honey share everywhere else.
Come on, come on, come on!

As good as you've been to this world
So good I wanna be right back to you.
As good as you've been now,
As good as you've been to this whole wide world,
So good I wanna be.
As good as you've been now, say,
As good as you've been to this whole wide world,
As good as you've been, babe,
So good I wanna be here.

Ain't no use in being faithful,
I see you look at the sky.
I know what's in it make you happy there,
But it only make you cry.
I think you got good intentions too,
They don't manage to show through.
Whatever you give to the world outside,
I wanna give it right back to you, yes I am!
Come on, come on, come on!

So you meet somebody on the street,
You know you treat him mighty fine,
Or you meet somebody on the street
And you give him a real hard time.
It's gonna come on home baby,
I said it's gonna come right back home to you.
I said it's gonna visit you now,
Yes it is, oh yes it is.

As good as you've been to this whole wide world,
As good as you've been, babe,
So good I wanna be here.
Oh, good as you've been to this whole wide world,
As good as you've been, babe,
So good I wanna be here.
Ah, the way you love your mother,
The way you love your sister, your brother,
The way you love your aunt, your uncle,
Anybody now, everybody now.

Good as you've been babe, hurrah!
Good as you've been babe, hey!
Good as you've been babe, hey!
Good as you've been babe
'Cause I'm just gonna show you now
And I'm just gonna make you want it now
'Cause I 'm just gonna give you a thrill
Say, good as you been babe,
hurrah, good as you been babe,
Come on, good as you been babe,
I say, good as you been babe,
Oh daddy, good as you been babe,
My man, good as you been babe,
All right, yeah hey.

Crystallize it, dears
NEVER settle for less than someone who respects and loves you, makes you feel like the most awesome, talented, beautiful, intelligent, fantastic, sexiest, funniest person in the entire world.

And of course, when you find that person and love them just as much...hold on tight, and go OUT OF YOUR WAY to make them feel all those things right back.

This goes out
to all you harlots and perverts who cheat on great people because you're torpid, selfish human beings.

I hate you, wish you the worst, and if there was a hell (which there unfortunately isn't) I'd hope you all to suffer burning there for eternity with Satan personally slicing at your 'nads with red-hot razor blades. Daily. Prometheus/eagle-style.

Well, since there isn't any hell, I wish you the equivalent of hell on earth. I don't care that your suffering won't benefit me in any direct way, or that I'm not being PC. Bleed. Suffer. Writhe in pain.

No excuse is a good excuse...because all excuses have the same, easy, fool-proof solution. Any imbecile with a few functioning neural connections could understand.

Let's check out some winning excuses. (Note: This is in no way a comprehensive list of excuses, but most of these excuses I've actually heard used.)

****************

Excuse #1: You're not really that into the person you're with. Solution: Dump them.

Excuse #2: You don't like their race, political views, religion/lack thereof, etc. Solution: Dump them.

Excuse #3: They're too physically repulsive for "perfection incarnate" (aka. you). Solution: Dump them.

Excuse #4: They don't know how to dress, and it gets your panties all knotted up. Solution: Dump them.

Excuse #5: They're not giving you enough booty to satisfy your salacious desires. Solution: Dump them.

Excuse #6: They're not giving up ANY booty for some higher moral/religious reason. Solution: Respect and live with their choice, or dump them.

Excuse #7: Their cat gives you life-threatening allergies. Solution: Dump them.

Excuse #8: You can't stand the way they laugh. Solution: Dump them.

Excuse #9: Their breath stinks of your least favorite food, no matter how many mints you give them. Solution: Dump them.

Excuse #10: You've got "O.J. Simpson-esque" memory, so probably won't remember cheating even if you do...so it's kind of like you never cheated...pretty much...almost...if you could only remember what you were talking about. Solution: WTF are you doing in a relationship in the first place? Get back to the sanatarium, you deranged creep.

*************

Then again, I guess selfishness wins over the majority of our "HEREANDNOWANDIWANTATOYANDMYCAKEANDEATITTOOALLTHETIMENOWNOWNOWGIMME" population.

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!!!!!
Just when i thought it couldn't get any better...it DOES!

I heard back from UCR a few days back, where they informed me that I was not admitted to their masters program, I was merely admitted into their credentialing program. I would have to get straight A's the first quarter I was there, and get letters of recommendation from all the professors before they officially admitted me into the masters program.

While bummed, I was not completely put-off, since it gave me an excellent reason to work hard the first quarter.

Today I heard back from UCSD, were they let me know not only have I been accepted into the school, I've been accepted into their BCLAD Masters program. Holy crap?!

Maybe the adage "when one door closes one door opens" is true?

Either way...I am elated AND prostrated at the same time. :)

Couldn't resist...
I guess this puts me 8% away from acquiring the nickname "abominable Artie." Fun stuff.

You scored as atheism. You are... an atheist, though you probably already knew this. Also, you probably have several people praying daily for your soul.

Instead of simply being "nonreligious," atheists strongly believe in the lack of existence of a higher being, or God.

What
I have been running consistently for months, and feel more physically fit than I've ever been. I've been accepted into grad school for the program of my choice. I am in love with a wonderful person who I can't imagine ever letting slip out of my life.

This can't be happening to me.
I am vulnerable...I am weak...
And I am not being taken advantage of.
In fact, I am being treated with more respect than I would have ever imagined.

In short, I am happier than I've ever been in my entire life...and yes...that is saying a lot.

*Sigh*

I wish I could live today over and over and over and over and over and over again.

Later today...
Today will be a great day. I will wake up in the morning, eat some cereal, run, take a shower then read. After the morning routine is done, I'll have lunch with a sultry friend, then go out shopping, swimming, and party all night long with Kei.

What could possibly be better?

Life is effin' good...I don't feel the craving need for more.

Dear BCLAD M.Ed. program at UCR,
Accept me, and I'll make your wildest dreams come true. I'll put 'santitos' in the hallways. That is all.

Heh
So yah. I'm a dork. I went to a phantom rehersal today. While the orchestra had rehersal, the chorus did not. I have to go pick Caitlin up at 10, which means that I pretty much screwed myself over. At least I don't feel as dumb as the guy that brings food every week...he lugged all this food in for the chorus, only to have to bring it back home since we don't have rehersal.

Not only that, but as I was leaving, I accidentally broke my trusty Rubik's cube. Now I need to get a new one.

Oh well.

Finally...
Apparently, yesterday my cell phone found a nice little nook in my locker behind a pad of paper to hide behind. I am now in full possession of the phone again, which means that I can be reached once again! Yippee!!!!

Yesterday I saw two people at my workplace who I hadn't seen in years. (Since high school.) It was awesome. :) We had a little chatty, and parted ways knowing a little more about what each of us is up to. Also, the girl that gave me my kitty came in too. Awesome people-day.

Anyways...I am a little tired...a little moody...a little confused...and a little cynical. Go me!

Take care, y'all.

So yah...
I'm pretty much a complete idiot.

I either lost my cell phone completely, or left it at work. Either way, I couldn't call my friend to let her know I couldn't go to her party, couldn't call Kei or Jenelle (sorry, guys)...since I have all the numbers in my phone. If I don't find it tomorrow morning, I am going to have to break some pinkies. Primarily my own.

Lupin
I'm just glad I wasn't dubbed Harry Potter. Lupin is pretty damn cool. :)

You scored as Remus Lupin. You are a wise and caring wizard and a good, loyal friend to boot. However sometimes in an effort to be liked by others you can let things slide by, which ordinarily you would protest about.

A small blue tin

Not all great gifts

Valentine's day!
Happy Valentine's day to all you wonderful single people who will be feeling crappy about yourselves sitting at home crying that you have nobody to love you.

Yay for my splendiferous party! There will be much love and goodness to go around.

For those of you who have someone to hold you close and squeeze you tight...go away. Nobody wants you around.

Just one of those days. It really IS time for Artemisa to be single for a while.

I've been spoiled by love too much lately. When is my official time to suffer? :)
