Subject:laurel aka superwoman
Time:11:25 pm.
Mood: exhausted.
so i freakin' got up at 6:45 this morning. i just want everyone to know that that makes me superwoman. no, don't argue. it is summer time...that is crazy early...and i did it. thank you very much.

*i got up that early to go with sooz to get her little vein zapped at the dermatologists in s.a.

*after that we hit up taco cabana for breakfast tacos and starbucks where i was still so tired i ordered a "tai chi" instead of "chai tea". needless to say sooz had a field day with that one. i tried to pretend i just didn't really have a clue what i was saying and made as swift an exit as possible before the person behind the counter and the long line of customers behind me really caught on as well. i think i failed, but thank god they were all polite.

*after breakfast, which made me queasy, we went to bed, bath, and beyond and i got new sheets and towels, etc, for my dorm room. yum!

*stupidly stopped in old navy where i spent more money i shouldn't have on irresistable brown pants and flipflops (that i really did need).

*met mom back at whole foods...and then on to the piercing studio!

*arrived at mind's eye in s.a. at about 12:20 and i was outta there by 12:45. it wasn't as bad as i had thought it might be, and bishop (my piercer) was great. oh yeah, i failed to mention what i pierced...haha....my left nostril. it looks decent. i think it helps even out my face a bit, and although it isnt exactly where i would have placed it, it was the best spot according to bishop...and we all know he is piercing god. i just got a plain steel ball, discreet and satisfying for me. it feels like a constant booger...just in case any of you are curious.

*got home and started defensive driving online. ugh...stupidest thing ever.

*went to REP to see everyone one last time and say goodbye to Rob.

*watched the women's gymnastics team survive with a silver and the gold sadly taken by romania. no fair!

*laurel goes to bed!

Subject:so fresh and so clean clean
Time:6:11 pm.
Mood: lazy.
just out of the shower. i think i'm a compulsive bather. i took three baths yesterday, and two the day before that, and at least one every night this previous week. i'm so glad our suites in taylor will have baths this next semester to support my disorder.

i got my first shooting lesson last night. dad got out his .22 rifle and we set up paint cans and sooz and i took a crack at shooting them down. we weren't bad, but we were using a scope, mind you. anyhoo, it was fun fun fun. "i love shooting this thing!" "i am not a victim!!!"

this morning i got up around 10ish and then spent the next 2-3 hours learning how to change my brake pads with dad. we also changed my oil, etc. thank god my brakes don't squeal anymore.

after that i pretty much watched the olympics all day...just being lazy lying on the couch. man, those beach volleyball guys are damn sexy. tonight i will be glued to the tv because women's gymnastics is on. i don't know why i like watching this stuff. it just makes me feel even more out of shape. how depressing. seriously.

Subject:saturdays are the best
Time:7:00 pm.
so today was good. i didn't work. in fact i don't think dad even brought up any issue related to work, except how much my paycheck was, and that is of course acceptable.

*matt woke me up with his morning song. what a splendid way to wake up...except that it was at 10:20 this morning (his idea of 11 or thereafter).

*alas, after that wonderful serenade i fell back asleep until 1:30. i had a breakfast of grapes, talked with my mom, and got ready to run errands.

*pow...best part of the day...i bought new shoes! i will admit that hands down i have a shoe fetish now...and anne is partially responsible. but i got cool new tennis and some hip little mary jane style tennis. tah dah. i love shoes.

*sooz and i made the rounds at target, walmart, and payless. we ate lunch at subway, and dessert and drinks at starbucks. yum.

little notes of interest...

*i really need to shower.

*sooz and i are going to rollerblade here in a minute...getting out the old skates to take to school.

*we leave in 6 DAYS!!!

Subject:a revelation
Time:11:17 pm.
Mood: frustrated.
so i just came to the conclusion that there is a lot of crap on my mind that i need to get rid of. this is going to be boring to everyone but me. but it is written just for me, so i guess that's all that matters.

1. friends

- friends i thought were on the right track, who i had gotten really close with again, have yet again disappointed me, for no given reason.
- friends i do care about are getting the brunt of my evil side, but only because it is the last thing i can think of to do.
- the people i care about in general? so frustrating....people are soooo stupid.
- because of this i have cut myself off...thinking better for all involved: i won't be a pain in someone's ass, and i won't have to worry about situations and behavior that i can't do anything to change.
- what this comes down to is i think i'm finally tired of trying to be everyone's support system (not trying to sing my own praises, but that's the role i usually play) and i'm ready for my friends to grow up and be responsible for themselves.

2. drugs

- i HATE marijuana. this stupid plant as ruined or affected more of my relationships than i ever thought possible.
- no wonder there are so many stupid people in this world! everyone thinks it's fun to smoke their brain cells away. how utterly idiotic.

3. love

- i think i'm realizing i don't always want to be alone in life. not quite to the point of saying i'm interested in marriage, but i definitely don't want to go through life focused completely on a career and leave out love, like i'd always planned. you know...miss common sense over here.
- i think i've always been scared of being hurt, for whatever reason. typical, i know, but i think it's true. i'm trying to accept the fact that that is what life is about.

4. theatre

- i'm confused. i can't decide if this is what i want to do with my life or not. the satisfaction i feel from being on stage is almost over run by the things that irritate me about it now: the amount of time it consumes, the people, my lack of personal creativity, etc. maybe if this were ever to be my career in some way and i could focus only on it, it would feel differently.
- it makes me tired. enough said.

such is life!

Subject:rep, etc.
Time:1:17 am.
Mood: contemplative.
so rep has been on my mind a lot lately. i know everyone is tired of hearing all my "professionalism" bullshit. they were tired of it when i was IN rep and now it's only gotten worse since i spent a year working in a college theatre. i just really care about that group, the organization and the people in it, particularly right now. for some reason i really want all of them to succeed and for the standards in rep to be raised. i think much of the problem lies at the top, the positions of authority. rob knows this, we've talked. she just tries really hard to be everyone's friend when this particular group really just needs someone to crack down and take control. the leaders are not 1) being allowed to do their job and 2) stepping up the way they need to be. they aren't being given the respect they deserve by the other members, but maybe because they don't deserve it and they aren't demanding it. how do you make someone understand that concept? beats me.

anyway, rob and i have plans to rewrite the inner circle policies and make a lot of changes regarding illegal substances and conduct and i think rob is going to start eliminating the problems in rep by strictly following those policies. the problem is no one reads or pays attention to those policies because she never applies them.

so off my soap box...

today i...
- slept till 3
- missed pancakes for breakfast
- had father's day with my mom and dad
- went to rehearsal at 6
- was done at 8:30
- stayed till 10 cleaning the guys dressing room
- came home and got online
- realized i'm a loser

Subject:headache
Time:10:26 pm.
Mood: exhausted.
party was sort of lame last night. but it was still better than sitting at home. the most entertainment was laura drunk . . . and i mean drunk. she's one of those people i reeeeally like drinking with. (serious) i wrote "my name is laura, and i think i'm cute" all over her bare back in a big black permanent marker. glad i didn't have to see her this morning when she found it.

robert drove so kayla and i could drink - not that either of us really needed him to. we were good little girls. smoked way too many cigarettes, but the corona was good - and free. i had mine, and finished everyone else's. the party was for taylor - since he's moving and leaving the gang. i know HE had fun *wink wink* - probably won't ever forget last night from what i hear.

made it up this morning in time to make walnut raspberry brownies for the family thingie this evening before having to go to rehearsal. speaking of . . . headache. o my gosh, it couldn't have been more annoying. too many kids - reminds me every day i'm there why i don't want any. i'm finishing my smirnoff and going to bed.

Subject:the luckiest - ben folds
Time:3:45 am.
I don't get many things right the first time.
In fact, I am told that a lot.
Now I know all the wrong turns and stumbles and falls brought me here.
And where was I before the day
that I first saw your lovely face?
Now I see it every day.
And I know
that I am, I am,
I am the luckiest.

What if I'd been born fifty years before you
in a house on a street where you lived?
Maybe I'd be outside as you passed on your bike,
would I know?
And in a wide sea of eyes,
I see one pair that I recognize.
And I know
that I am, I am,
I am the luckiest.

I love you more than I have
ever found a way to say to you.

Next door there's an old man who lived to his nineties
and one day passed away in his sleep.
And his wife, she stayed for a couple of days
and passed away.
I'm sorry, I know that's a
strange way to tell you that I know we belong,
that I know that I am, I am
I am the luckiest.

Subject:number one
Time:3:16 am.
Mood: content.
reunited with lj again. under a new alias, but the same me. well, the same me, but a different person. sometimes a fresh start is good.
