Houston here I come! W00T!!!
We'll I haven't written for a few days so let me get you back up to speed. Skiing on Saturday was alot of fun. It was just nice to be out of New York City, be in the mountains and, most importantly SKI! I had some good bonding time with my family and neighbors. Oh and I got to explain the word "ejaculations" to my brother. Ok i know i know that sounds really bad, but believe me, its a vocabulary word and can be used in other ways besides the literal. Of course, I should have known it was a BAD IDEA to try and explain this to a 15 year old boy on a crowded ferry. He asked me for a definition and stupid me, i say "to spirt out something...i mean phrase....i mean so say something loudly..." By this time hes practically on the floor laughing and the ENTIRE ferry can here him say "So Melissa EJACULATIONS MEANS TO SPIRT SOMETHING OUT!!!!!" Yea, it was embarrassing, but i brought it on myself.

Vermont was nice, it was cold though....EXTREMELY cold and windy, but guess what? Within a few hours, Im gunna be in warm Houston with Lisa! Exciting! Yup, my goal of this trip is to get in touch with my southern side. Im gunna buy a cowboy hat or two, meet some cowboys, go to a good ol' Rodeo, it should be fun fun fun!

Well I hope everyone has a great week!!

Ohh and just a side note, it has come to my attention that some people (who will go unnamed) think that I hate them or dislike them or whatever. I just wanted to say that I don't hate anyone...except Tucker(just because he is a waste of so much potential)....and Bush...and Delay...and some other republicans...but definitely not you guys. So yea, its just a misunderstanding that will hopefully be cleared up.

Ok Love you all!

I suck at LIfe...Almost as much as Tucker...but not quite
So today sucked. It was gorgeous outside, but i got to spend all of two seconds in the sun. My printer decided to completely crap out on me and I missed my English class trying to get it to print my damn Wuthering Heights essay. Now I have all night to study for a bio lab midterm which I haven't really put much thought into until today. Its not totally my fault, Ive been working on a major paper, had a huge chinese test and yea I don't know why im making excuses for being a lazy ass but there ya go.

I can't wait until tomorrow; I finally get to leave the city! Don't get me wrong, New York is awesome, but I need to get out of here. I need some quite. So tomorrow Im going home and then going skiing in vermont. It should be alot of fun, I haven't gotten to ski much this year; Im excited :) So after I get home from that Im going to Houston to visit Lisa and see some Cowboys hahha. It should be a good spring break, the whole trick is getting through the next 15 hours.

Before I go, I just need to give props to John Kerry. The Republicans asked him to apologize for the comments he made yesterday (see yesterdays blog) and he gets on camera this afternoon, after being silent all day, and says "I know alot of Republicans want me to apologize for the comments I made yesterday....well....Im not apologizing" I really hope he beats Bush. Oh and is it just me, or is he getting better looking? I used to think that Kerry looked kinda..well...dead, but now hes hot. For an older man, he is VERY attractive. Maybe Lisa is right and its the whole power thing, i mean power is sexy.

Ok well work calls...can't procrastinate anymore

Ok so fencing today ROCKED! We had a tournament in gym class and I won! I actually felt really bad because I ended up beating this girl who fenced varsity in high school and ive never done it before this semester so I think she was pissed. Ohh well, I won a 3 Musketeers bar (haha the irony) so it was cool. So yea, can i major in fencing? How about gym class? Yes it is sad that my best class is gym...I guess i really am a jock.

Ok so on another note, Tucker Carlson sucks at life. I don't know how many of you watch Crossfire on CNN, but hes the little annoying bitch with the bowtie. The man needs to realized that NO ONE likes him! Its ridiculous how much the audience cheers for everyone else on that show but is silent when hes talking. So, Tucker, my advise to you would be:
1.) STOP buying bowties, theyre out of date and make you look like an uber dork
2.)use that money to buy a clue. YOU SUCK!

Ok, sorry, venting some frustration. Ive been watching CNN all day and I CAN'T STAND REBULICANS! they're just OBNOXIOUS! Now theyre making a big deal about Kerry calling them "crooked" and "liars". I forgot who said it, but one top republican called Kerrys language the most "vile and hateful" in American Political history, or something like that. Ok umm right...I don't know how much American Political history hes read but yea im sure "crooked" hasn't been the worst word used...but maybe in Repulican world where EVERYTHING IS MADE UP, its true...maybe I just shouldn't judge....

Ok well American Idol is on and I have to xue hen dou zhong wen and other school work to do.

Midterms suck...almost as much as Tucker...but not quite.

Ok so ive been putting off studying for wayyy too long. I have a chinese test on thurs, a lab practical on fri and a english paper due on thrus. Ever since I decided to scrap pre-med, ive been getting extremely lazy with my work. Ohh well, i'll be pulling a few all-nighters but its all good, spring break is in 3 days yesssssss

Tonight I went to a women in media seminar. It was really interesting, a bunch of Barnard Alumni were there talking about their jobs( which, btw, are EXTREMELY cool). One woman does all the PR for MTV, another is the Editor in Chief of Lucky magazine, another one edits Elle magazine and another is a news reporter for the WB. Im realizing more and more that journalism is where my heart has been all along (besides i want to be on TV lol). The reporter used to work at news 12 Long Island so she gave me her e-mail address and told me to try and get an internship their this summer. So we'll see what happens with that. Anyway, besides that my day was really uneventful and quite boring. Oh and I HATE FLEICHER (English prof). I got to class late today and the only seat left was right next to her...I almost gaged! The woman needs to were deodorant! Or at least shower! Oh and Im convinced she was a bobble head in a previous just have to watch her to understand...

Alrighty well its time to finish my work. Its back to the books I go. Woohooo

btw congrats on getting into Airborn Eric!

The weather was horrible today. Some sickening mix of rain, snow, sleet and whatever the hell else was falling on my head. I am so ready for spring and I can't WAIT to be in Texas this time next week. Yup, thats right, im gunna be a Yankee in Houston :). Lisa is doing a good job of teaching me the whol' Texas lingo so hopefully I wont sound too out of place when i get there. Let me give you an example of what im learning:

Normal language: Hi, Id like a soda, do you have Dr. Pepper?

Translated into Texasish: Howdy, Y'all got coke? I'm fixin to get a Dr. Pepper.

If the above example doesn't make sense to you, don't worry, i don't think it makes sense either...but apparently in Texasish, its perfectly understandable. Apparently they call ALL soda "coke." Now maybe this is just my Yankeness showing, but why would ANYONE want to do that? Doesn't it get confusing? What if you want soda, but you want a sprite, or dr.pepper or mountain dew?? Oh and another thing, whats up with y'all? Is it plural? Singular? then what about all y'all? Maybe I'm just thinking about this too much...i guess im a Yank who just doesn't get it.
Anyway, so I'm excited about going to the Rodeo and, more importantly, seeing some real, live cowboys hehehe (jk hun).

Ok well back to work work work. I need to Xue Zhong Wen (study Chinese) and finish a chapter or two in bio. Fun fun fun.

Btw happy 10 months Eric :)

My First BLOG! March 7th
Yess, I have found a new way to procrastinate.

I can already tell that this "blogging" will cut dangerously into my bio/calc/chinese work, but after these past few weeks, I don't know if I care too much about that anyway.
School is getting insane. I don't think I've ever worked so hard and achieved so little in my life. It is a little bit disheartening, but at the same time, I guess I am learning humility; I can FEEL my ego shrinking to the size of a peanut. It seems like Im not really good at anything...which kinda sucks...big time. But hey, its all good right? Worse comes to worst I can work at Great America, mopping up hurl and lung butter...chyea...(props to anyone who knows where that quote is from :)
I guess I shouldn't be looking for all the answers right now. As my wonderful boyfriend put it: trying to figure out life all at once will only give you a headache, and I've had a vicious one for the past week.
It would be nice to know what Im supposed to do with my life though, or at least nice to know if this pressure im putting on myself is truly worth it. Why am I doing this to myself? Is premed what I really REALLY want to do? Or am I just a masochist? Sometimes its so hard to tell the difference between killing yourself for something you love or doing it just so you don't have to admit defeat...

On a lighter note, I went shopping with my mom today. It was really nice; a gorgeous day in New York City. We started at The new Time Warnder Mall on 59th street. Its so pretty, but I don't think i could afford a sock there. Its one of those places where the ultra rich shop for fun and normal people (like me) would have to mortgage a house to buy an outfit. So, yea,we didn't get anything there, but we did do some damage at Macys and the Sea Port. Although I did get some VERY nice clothes, the best part of today was that I had time to chill out with my mom and get some perspective on things.

Ok well enough procrastination for tonight...its off to bed I go, lets see if we can't make up some of that sleep debt!
