[ music | Matty C- "Assuming You Are" ]

So, I may have missed the show last night. But I got the hook-up with the new lyrics...yay!

"Assuming You Are"

Somehow beneath this new synergy
Stood in your skin and hit the floor
I'm waiting to test our brief chemistry
Spilling out venom instead of flowers once so pure

And it chokes me
To have to swallow down the hand-me-downs of my heart's history
But the vessel of time which we ride is forged in a time we know
And it's drained if you're not still in time with me, ahh ahhh ahhh...

What have I done to you now my love
Such a thing nothing can now revoke
Oh I took a portrait in perfect paint
And penciled in such an imperfect stroke
And it slaves me
And you too

But all the monochrome miles we've trudged
Inside of this flood to the shore
They're for naught
If you're not still on board with me
Ohhhh...

Assuming you are
Assuming you stay out the end
To earn your love
Hell high water come what may

Some days I'll dial you up
Just to make sure you're still there
Some nights I'll wander inside of your dreams
Just to hide in your hair
Ohh yea...
Can you feel it now

For we're standing on opposite ends
Of this potential divide
And I'm hoping you're seeing the same
From your side

Assuming you are
Assuming you stay out the end
To earn your love
Hell high water come what may

Nothing that's earthly will change how I feel
Oh and your earthly beauty just sweetens the deal
Our hearts complexities flavor the wine
So nothing this perfect is perfectly fine
Said nothing this perfect is perfectly fine
Said nothing this perfect is tasting remarkably fine
So fine... oh... oh so fine... yeaaa... ohhh

Assuming you are mine
Assuming you stay
We'll begin to honor love
Hell high water come what may

We are engineered that way
Hell high water come what may
Oh we are engineered that way


Yeah, and I forgot to watch the Bachelor tonight damnit, but Nicole just gave me the update :-)

There are times I'm blinded by own ambition... [20 Oct 2003|09:19pm]

[ music | Thursday- "War All the Time" ]

So I haven't updated this thing in a month. I've been busy to some extent, but it's probably just due to lack of interest in my little journal friend here. So, here's a little update for anyone who cares:

School- Scool is school. College definitely requires more work than high school, but I enjoy the freedom of it too. Anyway, instead of worrying about this semester, I've spent most of my time looking into different colleges to transfer to in the fall. I feel like all this should have been done last year, but it gives me something productive to do with my time. School isnt horrible now, but I only went here intending to stay a semester or two, and I intend on keeping this plan. There's a couple different schools I'm thinking about, but I havent made any decisions yet. On Friday, I have a meeting at NYU. It's definitely more of a dream college, and I can't afford it. But I'm going to try to forget about that for one day anyway.

Work- Work has improved over the last month actually, now that satan is gone. I didn't think I'd like having a guy for a boss, but Bill is really cool. He's very easy-going, and he thought Matt has a good voice when we were listening to his demo cd the other day. So, yeah he won my approval with that. And as much as I complain about everyone else in there, they're like my second family and in some strange way I care about them, lol.

Everything else- I can't complain about life. I'm lucky to have good friends, and all that. The day after my last update ( I can't believe I actually remember back that far), My aunt mary, me, lauren, and her mom went to the Broadway flea market which was a shitload of fun. I saw Rosie O'Donnell, Bernadette Peters, Nathan Lane, and various other people I can't recall a month later. My aunt got a pic with Nathan and an autograph, and we were so happy for her because she's a huge fan of him. Then we spent the day walking around and we went to Lauren's apartment/dorm which was so sweet and just added to my desire to live in NYC. That was a fun day. And this past week we went to two shows locally: Thursday/
Thrice and Good Charlotte/Mest/Something Corporate. Both were good shows, except for the excessive amount of teenyboppers at GC. It kinda reminded me of the good old days of Nsync. Whatever happened to Nsync anyway? It's like a mystery...

So that's my update. It was exciting I know.

I want to go to the gig at the Cutting Room tomorrow night damnit. Why must Matt's shows be two hours away and on week nights?

[ music | Rent- "La Vie Boheme" ]

So today was my long awaited trip to NYC with Nicole, since we didn't get there last month when we tried to go because of that little power failure thing. We decided to take the bus since driving there is freaking insane. Well guess what? The bus never came to Sears to pick up its passengers...Yeah I figured this trip would be doomed now. So after 45 minutes of waiting there, I took it upon my self to drive into the city. It was a good drive there, we got there in about 2 hours with no problems. We shopped a little bit, but I decided to be a little more careful with the credit cards today, so I didnt buy too much.
Anyway, we went to see Rent again today. Well, it was Nicole's first time, and I certainly never mind seeing it again lol. Ryan Link who is the new Roger was really good, and of course Matt was awesome, especially when he felt the need to grab his balls during La Vie Boheme and used the infamous video camera innapropriately during various situations lol. Overall, awesome performance.
So after the show we decided to wait around the theater because I wanted to see Matt. After a few minutes he came out with his girlfriend, who looked rather slutty, but I wont get into that now. He came over by us and signed my playbill and I got a pic with him. And of course he stood around, but I had to be dorky and couldnt talk like a normal human being lol. So I mumbled stuff about how I saw him a couple times, and I think he's a great Mark, blah, blah, blah. He was nice and thanked me for the compliments, but I was still a dork...haha. Then Nicole and I both got a pic with Ryan which was cool too.
After that we shopped for a little more, and then ventured back onto the roads of NYC, which were a little crowded at 8 on a saturday night. Yeah, I think I got beeped and cursed at a little too many times, lol. But somehow I got us home, so its all good.
Overall, a messed up morning that turned into a great day, and the best part is me, my aunt, lauren, and her mom are going back tomorrow for the broadway flea market...man what a fun-filled weekend...

Which Member from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy is your type?
brought to you by Quizilla


So college has kept me busy in some ways. It's a lot more work than high school which is to be expected, but its cool though because I feel like I'm barely there since its not that whole 8- 2:15 deal. But then again, I kinda enjoyed that whole comfortable routine deal. Anyway, I'm babbling...Most of my classes are pretty good. My english teacher is just completely liberal and free-spirited and really isn't into the whole idea of work as far as I can tell. My spanish teacher is like 90 years old, with Parkinson's disease, and can't speak english...um yeah that's not exaclty my favorite class either. Other than that, its nothing too exciting- I've met a few people to talk to from some different places. Now I just have to focus on figuring out where I want to go for this nutrition degree of mine...
I quit the Hilton the other day since I never worked there anyway. My boss was bitchy about it, but again I really don't care. I actually like the idea of only having one job again. I can't give up the home- because it's the nursing home and as much as I complain about it, those are my people man. It's all good...
On the 20th, Nicole and I are going to NYC. I can;t wait it's gonna be awesome, if we actually get there this time...haha. And my aunt was even talking about driving into the sity again that week for the huge flea market run by all the Broadway companies, so I hope that happens too. I love having little trips to look forward too!
Yeah, and if anybody hasn't seen Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, check it out. It's been my favorite show all summer- those guys are awesome- it's good entertainment. And basically it's the only decent thing on tv until Friends and Snl come back in the fall.
Well, I should go do some homework I guess...

[ music | matt caplan- divide and conquer ]

So this whole college thing has me really confused since I know wherever I'm going to this semester is not where I'm gonna be next year. This probably makes no sense, does it? It confuses me also. I don't know what I'm doing. I'm just gonna try to concentrate on where I want to go next year and where I actually want to go to pursue my nutrition degree. That's all for that subject...
Tonight we had a little cookout at my uncle's house. It was cool because I got to hang out with my cousins whom I never see anymore and it's really great because Leigh and I can actually talk anymore and have a good relationship now that we don't let the rest of the family interfere with what we think. I also met some people who might become part of my family in the future...It might happen, you never know with my family....
Other than this whole college confusion I've been going through, nothing else has really happened. I'm looking forward to the nfg concert next week and then nyc in September, and then everything else will just fall in place I guess...

When the lights go down in the city... [15 Aug 2003|11:18pm]
[ mood | amused ]
[ music | Journey- "Lights" ]

So yesterday, Nicole and I decide to take a spontaneous road trip ( Tom would have come to but he had band practice). After my begging, Nicole gave into going to NYC...yay! On our way there, Nicole called ticketmaster and got awesome tickets at the last minute. We decided to get them for Rent ( yes I know I just saw it last month, but I like it too much and it's Matt Caplan damnit). So everything was going well until we were in the middle of new jersey somewhere and Nicole's mom calls us and tells us that the power just went out in NYC. So after some phone calls, we stopped at a shady truck stop to find out what was going on where we hung out and got some info from some interesting truck drivers...again shady...So we headed back home and stopped in Stroudsburg at the mall to waste some time. It was basically dead there, so we went back to our mall, had dinner, then went to b&n where some guy started talking to us about dog contests and Chinatown. After that we went to blockbuster where Brad took off the charge for some late movie, and then we went back and watched American Pie 2.
I really feel bad for all the people in NYC and everywhere else that had no power or anything. It looked like absolute chaos there. I'm grateful though that we didnt leave an hour earlier or we would have been stuck there till God knows when. But in a sick way I think it would have been interesting to be there and see (or not see) all that. lol. Nah nevermind...All I know is next time I'm taking the freaking bus haha

Daddy keeps sending you money and you keep that

So, I really don't feel like wiriting much today, so I thought I'd just do the quizzes instead. Both my summer classes are done at Lccc, yay! But now school starts again on the 25th at Misericordia, so its not too much of a break. I'm excited about it, but it's still a weird feeling that we all won't be going back to Hoban together this year. But change can be good I guess...

Went to see American Wedding tonight. It was sooo funny, I definitely reccomend for anyone who loves demented comedies. I honestly never knew fuck could be used in every word lol.

Matt Caplan- "Sideways"

Lost my train of thought around Chicago
Found a little solace where you lie
Never made collages as a young child
Not that much to see so much to say
Now even in this silence there's a thunder
And rain that steals the breath beneath the cage
And at least I've got your memory to soothe me
The bitter poison ripening with age
Because everything I've ever done
I've done because I love you
Silly you should ask
I'm afraid that I'll spend
The better prat of next year
Scared that I might need you
Bring me down and I'll feel again
Everything I've ever done
I've done because I love you
Sideways
Sideways
Lost my patience well before West 4th street
Found a copper coin, said seize the day
And I let the angry audience surround me
Hiding as I scream to give more to play
Now even in this thunder there's a silence
A shred of comfort standing at my door
And at least I've got the sense to reconstruct you
And leave me twice as lucid as before
Because everything I've ever done
I've done because I love you
Silly you should ask
I'm afraid that I'll spend the better part of next year
Scraed that I might need you
Bring me down and I'll feel again
Everything I've ever done
I've done because I love you
Sideways
Sideways
And you left your mark
And you left you face
In the corner of mind three times
You left your mark
You left yourself
And at least I've got the sense to sense what's coming
And realize that good things never come to those who wait too long
Because everything I've ever done
I've done because I love you
Silly you should ask
I'm afraid that I'll spend the better part of next year
Scared that I might need you
You gotta bring me down and I'll feel
Everything I've ever done
I've done because I love you
Sideways

[ music | Rent- "Tango:Maureen" ]

I'm actually updating multiple times this week. yay for me! I got my class schedule for miseri yesterday, even though we're not supposed to get them until the end of august. My mom enjoys calling people and annoying them, what can I say? So here's my fun-filled schedule for Fall 2003:

Freshman Experience- Monday 12-12:50
U.S. History to 1865- MWF 1:30- 2:20
Art, Self, and Community in the Modern World- MWF 2:30-3:30
Literature of Values: Ancient and Medieval Literary Texts (blah!)- T-TH 9:30-10:45
Analytic Geometry and Calculus I- T-TH 11-12:15 (holy shit I'm screwed...)
Psych Communication Skills: Interviewing & Recording Techniques- T-TH 12:30-1:45

So yes, other than a god-awful calc class (eww), it seems like a half-decent semester. Don't most of these classes seem pointless? I am excited about not having to start school until 1:30 on Wed and Fri- that's some good shit.
I want to go to New York again damnit. It was so much fun on Wednesday. My parents took me to see my favorite musical Rent (yay!) which was soooo good, which was to be expected. Matt Caplan is the shit, and that Frenchie lady has an amazing voice- I was very impressed. My dad still doesn't understand what rent is about...haha...oh well...
So I saw an Amazon that Clay's cd is going to be called "Measure of a Man." Hmm..okay...Hopefully the quality of the songs will overshadow that lovely title lol...

good night!

Damn I wish I knew more words to that Invisible song. It's so freakin good...
Um anyway, it was like a freakin reunion out there tonight. Definitely we saw some surprise sightings tonight. I don't really know what else to say about that.
Things have been going pretty well lately. On Friday, I had my orientation at miseri. Most of it was gay and useless, but at least I found a few people I knew, and the one guy who was one of the orientation directors was someone I hung out with a few months ago, and we remembered each other and reminicised about playing Cranium so it was all good. Hopefully, I'll get my schedule soon so I can see what lovely classes I'll be taking this semester.
This weekend I went to Philly to see my cousins which was so much fun. I love going there because all we do is shop and hang out and Pat makes the most awesome food. My little cousin David and I ended up playing basketball and he completely kicked my ass, so I felt like a loser...haha
Then tonight, Tom, Nicole, and I went to walmart and I got myself a tv stand. yay! So now I need to rearrange my little room. Then we practiced some new karaoke material. We're way too talented, and I let Tom drive the Focus and I didn't even get nervous. I'm improving, I definitely am.

[ music | American Idol Finalists-"I've Had the Time of My Life" ]

So, today I feel like I'm about 13 or 14 years old, instead of 18. Even though I'm now considered an "adult" in some forms, I've seemed to have inherited teenybopper traits today. Yes, this frightens me but I'll get over it I'm sure.
So anyway, tonight was the American Idol concert. It was soooo good. I'm not just saying this because I love Clay and all them, I really did enjoy it. The first half was kinda boring since they all just came out in the order they were voted off the show and each sang a solo. Clay finally got the crowd going when it was his turn and he did an amazing version of "This Is the Night." Then they took an intermission and came out and did a bunch of group songs and duets. Clay and Ruben did a cool duet. And the girls sang "Bootylicious" and then they all did a Beegees medley, "I've Had the Time of My Life," "God Bless the USA," and various other songs that I can't remember at the present time.
Nicole and I also got to meet Rickey Smith at the Woodlands when we went to lunch today which was rather cool, even though we didn't even know who he really was at first...lol. But anyway, I got a picture with him so maybe when I get them developed I'll share it with y'all.
Well thats enough of American Idol, I think I'm even starting to get sick of them...haha

good night!

It's 4th of July [04 Jul 2003|05:30pm]

Well, my family's all over for our annual 4th of July cookout, so I decided I needed to escape inside for a few minutes because it's freakin hot out there. But I shall not complain because it was like 60 degrees up until last week. So anyway, we ate good food, and my cousins brought this incredible cheesecake from Philly with them. It's just too good for words. I'm definitely gonna need to go on the treadmill later...haha.
Besides that, I freaked out this morning because I'm tired of working all the time, and I just want to have some time off, since I've been working right through the past three years. Even during school I worked a lot of hours at the nursing home, and summer has always been full time for me too. My last day at the nursing home is Sunday, which I'm pretty excited about because it's definitely time to move on, and I like the job at the Hilton so far. But, it's still sad because there's a comfort that goes along with the home and some people, whom I'll miss. My boss there basically offered me any hours I want yesterday if I'll stay because I think she finally realized that she needs me and shouldn't have treated me like shit for the past 6 months. For a moment there, I just wanted to say, "Yeah sure I'll stay." But I know she'll never live up to her promises, and besides I tried to talk with her many times, and she would never listen to me, so I don't really have any sympathy for her now that I quit, and so did a couple other people in my dept. Anyway, back to the complaining about working too much...it should calm down now that I'll only be working at the Hilton, but I still am not in the mood to work 35-40 hours a week there either. I need some sort of a summer for myself. Not like my family ever goes anywhere, but I still might want to have some days to myself and to go places.
So basically, I think I just rambled on for ten minutes and didn't make any sense at all. I should win an award for that lol.

Big up to America

It finally feels like summer, so yes it's time for warm weather and shady bazaars. Tom and I checked out the one in Pittston yesterday. It was interesting, they had the usual death-wish rides, a scary pettin zoo with all the reject animals, and a bunch of strange people roaming around. I'm sure it'll be the first of many bazaars to come to this summer. I don't know why were all attracted to these events, but it just happens. We've also been going to the psu gym this week...yay I love exercising...I missed going to the gym. It just makes me feel better about myself and it keeps kids off the streets dogs.
Umm anyway...I started my training at the Hilton this week. The people there are really nice and friendly, which is a little bit of a change for me from the good old home, but it looks like it's gonna be a nice place to work. I finished my computer training today and they were all impressed how quickly I had it done. Which means one of two things: they were either being smart asses and just humoring me or I screwed up on some of my portfolio...hmm...On Tuesday, I get to start training at the front desk and wear my spiffy little outfit. And I also got the hookup on what celebs stay at our hotel. I can't give too much away, but we got some good people staying there this weekend...Hmm what good rap concert is coming to Montage this weekend and needs a place to stay? Think about it kids....
Speaking of concerts Idol's coming soon! yay! And me and daddy are going see Journey on Sunday! And Tom informed me that New Found Glory and Thursday are playing at the Allentown Fair, so I think we'll all be making an appearance at that.
Today, I finally realized that I need a break from work, studying, and going everywhere and anywhere. All day I felt like shit because lately I've had myself stressed over college and this new job and quitting the one I've had for years and just trying to do everything. I left work early tonight at the home because I had a splitting headache and I just couldn't stand it. Hopefully, everything we'll calm down soon because I want to have a relaxing summer and just chill...NYC kids, we're going soon yo!....My classes end in like 4 or 5 weeks and I only have about a week left at the home, so it should get better. I do feel better now after I sat on my tired ass all night and ate pizza and watched re-runs of Melrose Place. Now, I'm gonna go attempt to work on some of my Philisophy papers.
Nicole's grad party is tomorrow. I don';t think there will be any live animals at this one. Well, except for Sasha.

So what have I been doing with my summer vacation so far? Hmm...nothing too exciting. Tonight, Tom and I went to Steamtown to look for shoes for me, which was unproductive. Then to Johnny Rockets, and we picked up some candy and drinks to sneak into Cinemark...yes we're such rebels...and then we saw "From Justin to Kelly." Now, we both knew this movie would suck. I mean, come on, but I wanted to see it anyway for some reason. As expected it was bad, but it was so bad you just had to keep laughing at it. So after an hour and a half of Justin Guarini and his fro, I'm now home doing nothing.
I quit my job this week...woohoo. Finally, I didn't even think I'd ever do it. Nobody's too upset about me leaving. except for a few random people who will miss me, but the evil boos can't get me out of there fast enough. She had my name whited-out off the schedule in five minutes. Eh whatever, she can bite me. I'm sick of her treating me like shit anyway. So yes, my last day there is July 3. It'll be bittersweet in a way, but it's time to move on.
I think we need another karaoke night soon. Nicole, Tom, and I rocked the Applebee's crowd with our renditions of "Build Me Up Buttercup" and "My Friend's Over You." It's a good crowd there yo.

I need relaxtion damnit [17 Jun 2003|01:14pm]
[ mood | busy ]
[ music | JLo & JaRule- "I'm Real (Remix)" ]

I think I'm going crazy. Why? Well, it's not uncommon for me to have mental and emotional problems...but other than that, I feel like I have too much to do. I've brought a lot of this stress on myself, but it's turned into craziness. I've been spedning all my time working, going to classes, doing the work for my classes, going out, looking for a new job, and doing shit around the house. Summer is supposed to be a stress-free time damnit. A time of fun and carelessness, and mine's just f-ing busy. I honestly have no life, but for some reason there's too much to do. And then last week, I decided I'm not going to Marywood anymore because its too expensive, and I don't feel like being in debt up my ass for the next 20 years. And also, they completely shafted me with scholarships and gave me the scummy dorm. So screw them. So, I still want to major in Nutrition, and Penn State has it, so I'm now going there...I think. I'm not overly excuted about main because it's a little too big for my liking, but I'm gonna try the Lehman campus this year, and then decide after that. It's so much cheaper and just a more reasonable choice. My parents told me to do that months ago but I didn't listen of course. But now. they're happy at least, and I'm sure I will be too once I get everything starightened out.
Then, I go to good old Hoban today to have them fill out a paper and give me my transcripts, and then Sr. Donna sits me down and gives me this life talk about how I'm scared and confused and that's why I've changed my mind. After trying to make her see my point, she finally gave up her argument. WTf? I wasn't in the mood for that.
Well the phone's ringing, and I still havent done my homework my philosophy class tonight.
Ahh

peace yo,
amy

I love New York City. My aunt and I went there today and that place is just so not nepa. There's just so much diversity and life there. I don't think I could live there, but it's definitely one of my favorite places to live. I made some good purchases at JCrew and a few other stores there. We saw some play that wasnt a mucsical so I can't recall the name of it at this moment, which I know is sad people, but we were like a foot away from Helen Hunt which was kinda freaky, but she's cool. And that was basically our day. Driving to nyc is so much cooler than taking the bus. Screw Martz anymore...haha.
I made some discoveries this week which probably wont interest anyone, but it amuses me so whatever. Melrose Place is back on E! woohoo, sex and scandal. I love that show. Umm...Clay's single came out yesterday! The gospel singers drown him out in BOTW, but its all good anyway. And I bought Ruben's too, because I can't be a hater yo.
Other than that, work has basically sucked, so I'll continue my search for jobs Nicole and I will probably search some local establishments tomorrow for employment.
And thats all I can think of for now.
