It’s been an eventful few days. Tuesday night was fun. Shel, Laura and I went out, goofed around and ended up w/ tons and tons of deoderant. Long story.

Mia moved out and has apparently been screwed-over by the woman w/ the 10-year-old, meaning that I may be roomieless for the duration of my stay at Inman Park. I’m looking forward to it if only because I’ll be able to better determine whether I want to live alone. We shall see. My apartment is huge and looks incredibly empty and sad. I’m not going to redecorate cause I’ll only be there for another two months, but it’s borderline depressing w/ no decorations.

Last night I found out that a guy I hung out w/ at WVU shot himself in the head w/ a shotgun. He was part of my little group of friends and I really had a lot of fun w/ him. I was shocked and saddened to hear the news.

I’m having a blah day and I don’t know why. Probably PMS.

Mia’s going away party was great although Mia was a no-show. I dressed much sluttier than normal, which I think Shel enjoyed. I wore jeans and a one-shoulder clingy black shirt w/ pointy boots. Shel looked preppy and handsome and Laura looved very pretty. We had lots of fun just hanging out and walking around RiRas. Shel got drunk, which was fun. We then got chicken wings and such from Wing Zone, where I made friends w/ the owner. He was a John look alike, so I couldn’t help but strike up conversation. My whole weekend was very nice, although I missed Charlotte and felt badly for not being here for her. Not that she cared, but I felt guilty. She’s my little baby kitty. My maternal instincts are kicking in. Haha.

My aunt is going to die from the cancer that’s spread to her liver and kidneys. I don’t want to talk about it and won’t talk about it until I feel like it.

Mia’s packed up a lof of her things and the apartment looks so sad and empty. I would attempt to redecorate, but I’ll be out of here in two months, so it’s almost pointless.

I fell asleep today for like two hours. I never, ever take naps. Shel was curled up next to me and he was asleep, and I guess at some point my little eye lids closed and off to Dream Land I went. It felt good, though. In Europe people take naps every day and maybe that’s the way it should be in the United States as well. Europeans also get two months vacation every year and that’s definitely how it should be in the United States!

It’s been too long since I’ve posted in here. There’s lots going on, but I don’t have time to write all of it. I’m getting ready to go to RiRa’s for Mia’s going away party. I’m listening to Sandstorm and wearing Cool Water for women. The smell and sound is making me miss Morgantown terribly. I miss Kristen, Jeff, John, Dan, Dave, Michele, Brooks, Blake, Stewart Street, mountains, the Mountainlair and everything WVU. I would give anything, absolutely anything, if my two lives – my northern life and my southern life – could somehow come together permenantly.

My head is absolutely killing me. On my right temple it feels like someone it stabbing me w/ a dull knife. I took an Aleve this morning, but it didn’t help as much as I had anticipated. I’m going to Wally World on my break to get another bottle to keep at work. I don’t get headaches often, but when I to, they’re pretty bad.

I guess I’ll get all of the bad stuff out of the way first. My dad left me a long message on my voicemail last night informing me that my aunt’s cancer could have been detected much earlier and treated more effectively had she only gone to the doctor. You see, my aunt hadn’t visited a doctor in close to 15 years. Stubbornness and stupidity lead to this mess she now finds herself in. I’m not mad, although it seems like I may be. But – ok – maybe I am mad. I think I’m still mad at my grandmother too. She died senselessly. Had she done what the doctor told her to do, she would probably be here today. She would have seen me graduate and would have made trips to North Carolina. Instead I’m left w/ a diamond and emerald ring in a velvet bag to remind me of her. I can’t believe there’s a possibility of the same thing happening to my aunt. My grandma and my Aunt Natalie are (or should I say were?) the two closest women in my life besides my mother. My aunt is very strong, supportive and funny. She’s someone I look up to because she was the first member of my family to leave Pittsburgh. I used to think to myself, “If Aunt Natalie can do it, then I probably can too”. And when I felt like I couldn’t make it down here, she was the one I called. She gave me guidance and loved me. And when my grandmother was around, it was her kitchen I went to when I needed to escape the insanity of my own house. We’d sit across from each other at her kitchen table watching a little 13″ tv. We’d watch soap operas and I’d complain about Gregory, my dad and the way my mother babied both of them while Jason and I felt left out. She’d listen and take my side and call me Tootsie. I can’t believe these women I love so much would be so nonchalant about their health.

Enough of that. Self pitty isn’t very flattering.

Shel and I are maybe going to karaoke night at RiRas tonight, which should be fun. I absolutely love to sing, but I’m completely horrible. I can’t carry a tune for anything. I sing all the time in the car, though. I turn the radio up as loud as it can go (so I can drown my own voice out) and sing and sing. It’s great. I bet I look weird to people who pass me. It must look like I’m screaming or something. Hehe. Oh well.

Nothing else too new or exciting’s going on. I took a LOVE TEST and turns out I’m in love w/ my crush – who happens to be my boyfriend. So that’s a good thing! Marcus is picking up chinese food for lunch – yum! And that’s about it…
