Hey, just thought I'd give a little update on me.
I wasn't able to go to school this semester since the Europe trip overlapped with the first few weeks of the semester. Sooo, I've been trying to get a job. I thought "Ah! BORDERS! Perfect! I love books, I love bookstores, and every time I go to a bookstore I end up reorganizing the books anyway! Might as well get paid for it!" Why BORDERS you ask? Well, the person training me would be childhood pal Dana, I have another (kinda) friend named Megan working there (and both of them have given me recommendations), and to top it off I've played on the BORDERS softball team (captained by manager Mark) three times in hopes of making a good impression. ALSO BORDERS just fired a bunch of people and Mark says they're severely under staffed.
SO WHY CAN'T I GET THIS FREAKIN JOB?!?!?!?!
Arg, it's frustrating.
Last week I had a bit of a breakdown in the middle of the night. My sobs woke my mom up and she came and hugged me for a long time. It's reasons like that that make me not want to move out.
So as a response to that off course our next stop was my psychiatrist (who's really a great guy) who said I need to up my mediation a tad. So now I am taking 5 pills a day and LOATHING it. I hate pills.
I'm going to CSUN today to hopefully take to a advisement councilor about maybe changing my major. We'll see.
I'm also seeing The Grudge today. *hides under desk*
*GASP* I FINALLY have something to do on Halloween. I was getting soooo depressed about it and finally my cousin Allie invited me to hang out with her. Whew.
In case any of you don't have (or check) MySpace, I've lost 20lbs since graduation. Woot.
K. That's it for the update. Thanks for reading. ^_^

|04:40 pm - Paris|
Hello everyone! I thought I'd post a bit since I've got some free time before I'm off to climb to the top of Notre Dame! Yes, I'm bragging. Yes, I'll stop.
Mika, I'm sorry things sound hard. I sent you a postcard though! I miss you lots.
GoodNessa, OUCHIE! I saw that pic of your burn and visibly winced. Hope you feel better, and the pics of the clouds were GORGEOUS!
Alfe, Miss you tons! I hope school is going alright. You'll have to tell me about it.
Nora(aka Eleanor, aka Nell) Mwa ha. Since I don't have school till February maybe I could come by sometime? Your mom tells me there's an easy way to get there by bus. Let me know if there's anytime that would be good yeah? (PS. I saw PotC2 here in Paris. It was in English w/ French subtitles and I don't know how accurate they were cause NO ONE was laughing. Hmmm.)
I think that's all the people who still check their LJs somewhat regularly. If not, sorry! Shoutouts to EvilNessa, Becca, Ashley, Green, Amber....oi, I know I'm forgetting people and it will come back to haunt me.
Anyhoo, having a great time in Paris. I'll be home Sunday. See you all laterz!

I don't have a lot of time, just wanted to let everyone know I got here safely. Rome is great. Saw the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, Colliseum(sp?), and more. Can't write too much as I'm paying for this and the keyboard is driving me nuts! Keys are all rearranged. Mika, I'm sending you a postcard! I searched through your LJ and found your address. It's still 456B etc. right? Anyone else who wants a postcard, give me your address k?
Love you all!

|04:15 pm - Italy|
Well, I'm packing for my Italy trip. We leave tomorrow @ 1:30.....with a 12 hour non-stop flight to Heathrow. V_V I hate flying.
Anyhoo, we fly into Rome, spend some time there before heading to our villa in Tuscany. We're meeting other members of my family there (essentially, it's the same group I went to Greece with a couple years back). The cool part is we have the villa all to ourselves! It's a mile from the nearest town and has a pool. Ahh...
From the villa we'll be taking trips to Venice, Florence, Piza, and all those good places.
For the last week, we're going up to Paris, because when my parents got married my dad promised my mom that he would take her to Paris on their 20th anniversary. And this is it. It's that romantic? ^_^ While in Paris we'll do Moulin Rouge, Lourve, Eiffel Tower, and my favorite, the Opera House! We even got tickets to see a ballet/opera there! Don't ask me which one because it's some Italian, insanely long name.
We'll be back October 1st, too late for me to start a new semester obviously so I'll go back to school in February for the Spring 2007 semester.
For an update on me? I've lost about 15 pounds so far and am getting much better at make-up. Unfortunately I'm still anti-social and jobless so obviously I still don't have a significant other. It still hurts and haunts me, but I'm dealing with it.
Overall: I feel pretty good. :)
Current Location: Home, CA
Current Mood: okay
Current Music: Pocahontas...I like old school Disney...

Ok, I promised Mika a long time ago that I'd post something and after MUCH procrastinating, here it is:
1) Hot as hell + muggy = Sad (and frizzy) Jess.
2) All 'A's and 'B's this semester @ CSUN!!! Booyaka!
3) TRYING to get a job @ BORDERS. It's pretty much guaranteed, or so says the manager, but the delay is that they aren't checking applications regularly. Arg!
4) Taking next semester off to go to Italy and Paris w/ family!! Yay! Looking forward to Rome most of all. Just for the history. The whole concept of Rome in that for centuries it was the center of the universe, the most advanced civilization at the time, the most powerful force and earth and that it completely imploded on itself boggles my mind.
BIG NEWS (at least to me)
5) I had thought that I had given up on musical theatre. I really did. Musical theatre was that shining star that was beautiful to look at, but wasn't attainable. I was totally going to major in Linguistics, get a Teaching English as a Second Language certificate and teach English in Japan and possibly spend the rest of my life translating stuff and tutoring English peeps in Japanese. That was the plan.
The problem is that everytime I talked about giving up musical theatre I would begin to tear up and sometimes cry. I figured maybe this is my way of telling myself that I'm not ready to give it up. SO...I'm not. I'm going to finish out my G.E.'s @ CSUN cause I still want a rounded out education, and by that time Alfe will have been at AMDA for about a year and a half and she can tell me what she thinks. If she still likes it, then I will audition. If not then I'll just find someplace else. There are lots of theatre schools. This is plan.
....It's important to me, and I'm soooo happy to have some sort of plan. My life is so much more enjoyable when there is some sort of plan.
So, things are kinda falling into place. The one thing that still erks me to no end is the lack of love-life. I'm hoping that once I get that job I can meet some new people. I don't know if anyone's noticed but I don't really have a lot of friends. And those are either scattered arcoss the country or I don't see too often. I don't go to parties. I don't get invited places. I'm tired of it, so I'm going to take initiative! I'm going to get that damn job and talk/flirt to every damn person there with the homosapian gene! Male, female, any race, any religion! I don't care! I just need SOMEONE TO LOVE ME!

This past year has actually been one of the worst in my life. Not because of things happening, but because of things that didn't happen.
I don't know where my life is going. I cry at least a couple times a week because of the uncertainty of my life. I know what makes me happy: musical theatre. Problem is I'm not good enough to really get were ideally I'd want to go. Sooooo I could keep my major in linguistics. Go through seriously boring classes like 'Grammar' and 'Syntax' and teach English in Japan for a couple years before coming back to the states and probably sit behind a desk translating stuff as a career.
I could major in Theatre, but I don't really care for plays because singing is my real passion. But I'm not a belter, which is what most leading ladies in musicals are.
So I could try to find a vocal coach and pay them mucho money, but I don't know where to begin. Where to look.
I'd need to lose weight (which I do anyway, due to health problems- but, damn it, I love fast food and can't stand the taste of salads) and take better care of my appearance. I've been wanting for months now to just buy a whole new wardrobe (my closet is still mostly occupied by black t-shirts), but just haven't found the energy. Plus my room is so small and messy I don't even know where I'd put new clothes.
I've never had a boyfriend or girlfriend. I feel like a complete failure in that aspect. Am I the only one who has never been on a date? I'm not repulsive, at least I don't think I am. I'm not pretty by any means, but I don't think I'm ugly. Maybe I'm just blend in too much. I try to be nice to everyone. I can be interesting. I can even be witty sometimes. Why does no one love me?
I feel so lost, and that makes me depressed, and that makes me tired, and that makes me feel useless, and that makes me feel lost, and that makes me depressed, and that.........
Anyway, I don't normally post things like this cause I don't think people like reading them, but I just have to get it off my chest.
Wake me up someone. I'm sleeping through my life.
In complete honesty, I just wish someone would come over and
slap me in the face.
Current Mood: pessimistic

Happy new year everyone! Oh and Merry Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, or whatever. Mostly just Happy Winter Break! Yaya!
Was very nice seeing Nessa again. My lesbian lover/sister from the Nerd. *Garbanzo bean! You broke my statue! I'll buy you another one!* Oh I could go on forever. I actually think I enjoyed the Nerd the most out of all the shows, even if I was only in half the first act. Soo many fun things.
Hurray for seeing Mika get a tattoo. It's just surreal for me- the whole tattoo thing. I don't know what it is. Seeing people do things that I'm too chickenshit to do always does that. (p.s. Amber, I like your tattoo. Can't wait to see it completed and in person)
So, who's going to see Brokeback Mountain with me? Hm? Hm?

A word of warning never EVER use jo_huston's toilet. You'll see what I mean when you get in there! My god the vomit!
schizos_united managed to provoke a frenzied attack from suzy_creamchez after mocking their saviour ouija board. 'Jesus? Are you there? Are there pretzels in Heaven? Yes or No?' jested schizos_united
'God is Dead!' proclaimed jelloish_. 'jelloish_ is dead!' retorted bananamoo. Thankfully jo_huston managed to step in before the minor dispute turned into a major war.
'Look Godchild, I've had enough of your bollocks. It's time to meet your maker!' mumbled razzthesummoner before they began bludgening duran_duran_me to several yards from death with jo_huston's mother's ironing board.'
No one would have predicted it at the start of the evening but it seems like schizos_united has found an eternal soulmate in jo_huston. Oh the romance!
rinatheelf declared war on the fridge.
Out of nowhere, razzthesummoner stood up, gave a nazi salute and shouted "My nipples are as arid as the Sahara, baybee!"
In what can only be described as a historic revelation, midnightmaybee informed the room that Santa and sodomy do not mix
mslizrosque brought a whole new meaning to the phrase "obnoxious overblown serial bastard" with
their overly twattish antics.

My brain doesn't control my typing for some reason.
Yay! Figured it out all by myself!
