Cameron Time

I visited Cameroonie recently in Durham. I heart her. We had her ear pierced and dyed her hair red and watched the emperors new groove. The only (literal) damper was the serious amounts of rain that threatened to destroy my hair that Cameron curled for me.
Also, her hair dyed a couple shades of red because she had blonde hair, dyed dark brown hair, and some of her natural roots. Luckily, she and I still agreed it looked good.

No pictures this time, unfortunately.

New Job!

Woohoo! New retail job at R! I be making money soon!!! Also, I am not allowed to divulge where I work, apparently.

And here is my poem from 12th grade

But oh!, she looked my way as our eyes met,
And her attempted smile did speak to me
And lo', a saddened face hardly a threat
Filled with a world of dreams never to be.

Alas, my dearest sister forgotten once,
Verte moss and twigs did occupy her hair
So much was said among the silence
Such small webbed limbs; a child unaware.

Yet all the while did her familiar face
Suggest I understood this forest elf
Her eyes echoed of a distinctive place
Capture! I raised my lens, she saw herself.

Startled, she stared at me her eyes ablaze
And then alone was I among the haze.

I love this poem: written in 1932 by Mary Elizabeth Frye

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave bereft
I am not there. I have not left.

So Long Organic Chemistry...(For now)

Well I am officially withdrawn from Organic Chemistry at UNCC. The course was stressing me out way too much. Hopefully I can take it at CPCC during the summer.

Is anyone hiring?

I'm looking for a job in the North Carolina area. Anyone?

Spring Break

Spent the first half with my family and the second half with Nick. Would have been pretty great except I believe I had a lot of hw. I hate when I finally have time to make a post on my blog and I don't remember any details...whoops

Dinner with Lan and Carl and the Golden Globes

Went to mac grill with Lan and Carlton. It was fun but I did not like my food :/ ...
Then we went to cookout and my apartment, and my milkshake was wayyy better than my food. Afterwards, we went back to my apt so that we could watch the golden globes. Chris Colfer won! And, unfortunately, there was a presenter nipslip. Ew Ew Ew EW.

Seeing Red

I have wanted to see what I would look like as a redhead for forever. Finally, The summer after my sophmore year of college I got up the courage to have my hair dyed. My hair stylist talked me out of it because the sun's rays would make me brassy. She instead dyed my hair blonde. And I loved it! I was blonde for six months (June 2010-December 2010)!

During this winter break, however, I finally got tired of my brown roots (because I'm no millionaire) and bought some store dye... red store dye. I was so nervous but just went for it. And I love it! So a new red blog for new red hair!

True Grit, HP7, Black Swan

True Grit- an amazing remake. saw the midnight premiere with joey and his roommate Taylor.

HP7- saw it with alex stanley and leigh ann. best one so far.

Black swan- really weird. saw with joey and cameron. was not expecting a thriller, although natalie portman won a golden globe for her main role.

Dear Friend, I miss you

You know who you are. I miss being friends. I can't wait until we can be friends again. I'll be waiting.

Mexican Food

Ate at Fiesta Maya with Becky Her. Great Mexican place in Charlotte! Had it for my 21st birthday. So this is the second time I have eaten there, and it is by far the best mexican food I've had in years. Fantastic.

Surgeries 7....and 8?

I am having a 7th surgery. However, it was an optional surgery. I could have had the procedure under just some pain med assortment, but my doctor was worried I would metabolize the meds too fast and be uncomfortable during the procedure. I agree. So it is technically an official surgery.

My 8th possible surgery is exploratory to find the source of some pain I've been having. For the meantime, it will be postponed probably at least a year unless my pain is unmanageable. Hopefully the 7th surgery may explain some of the pain.

Spring 2011 Classes

Physics: interesting enough class but I'm so ready to be done with school by the time it rolls around

Physics Lab: every other week I don't have to physically go to class. it's awesome because it's at 8am

Organic Chemistry: hard class, nice professor. I HATEEEEE chemistry. hope I pass.

LBST Good and Evil: so much work for a general education course. I will get an A though.

French II: 8am, so tired, can barely answer questions in class. it sucks though because I'm actually amazing at this subject but my teacher doesn't know it. yet.

21st Birthday

Nick attempted to surprise me with my friends showing up to the party but unfortunately none of them could make it. He bought me footie pajamas that are pink with little dog faces on my feet. He also made me a strawberry cake with chocolate chips and fudge icing :) He spoils me. Oh, and he showed up with mikes hard cranberry lemonade...It is my 21st birthday, after all. We also went bowling again.

My parents showed up with an oreo ice cream cake and the Just Dance wii game. We had fun playing against each other (me, mom, brother, and Nick) while my dad filmed it.

AND they brought Jasper to visit me! Although he was a bit depressed/confused as to why he got in a car and didn't end up in the mountains.

AND we went to a mexican restaurant where I got the speedy gonzala and a mango margarita (which I couldn't finish because it was ridiculously strong)!! I really liked the mexican restaurant and I have been craving good mexican for a while. Nick and I, therefore, decided to go there again together.

New Years/ Cold from Hell

I don't remember what happened! Grrrr, I hate forgetting. Maybe I spent new years at my house and Nick was there... Except that I had a terrible cold that last two-thirds of a month. Literally. Worst cold/flu/sinus/bronchitis of my life!
