My dream is to marry a guido.

by on

Helloooo :) How is everyone doing? I've been doing really good. Great, actually. Now that the semester is over haha. I can't believe my first semester of college is over. It passed by so fast! But I'm not complaining that it's over since the last few weeks were crazyyyyy with all the quizzes/tests/papers I had. Overall, my first semester was better than I expected it to be. Before I started, I expected to spend like ALL my time in the library, but I only spent A LOT of time in the library, not all my time haha.

Anyway, since I haven't blogged in forever, here's a semi-short summary on what's been going on with me:
- I finished my first semester of college which consisted of lots of studying, great times with my suitemates Jen and Heather, parties!, drunken nights, lots of junk food & fast food especially Taco Bell! (people tend to crave tacos when they're drunk for some reason?), GG & OTH Mondays in the rec room, and fabulous times at the library which included lots of failed study session attempts and shushing. In short: it was freakin' awesome.

- I'm back home for a month+ long winter break and as much as I loved dorm life, I really missed home and home-cooked meals and my room. Also, all of my friends & sister are coming back to town this week! :) Yayayay! I finally get to see Jamie, Nick, and Luke and I've missed them like crazy! And now the old crew can hang out again and spend a sufficient amount of time with the boyfriend, so winter break will be great:)

- My new obsession is: JERSEY SHORE! Nothing makes me happy like a trashy reality TV show on MTV :P Haha but seriously, I love that show! It's so dramatic and I mean I'm Italian so I gotta love those "guidos" :lol: I actually think these people are funny and am one of the Italian people who aren't offended because this sh*t is so ridic, it's funny. My fave person is Mike 'The Situation' because his nickname is 'The Situation' due to his abs and he talks in 3rd person which makes him awesome, of course. And my favorite girl (who's eliminated, *tear*) was Angelina because she was sooo trashy and she didn't even know it haha. And Snooki! Lmfao, she's hilarious. First off, she's just FUNNY looking. She looks like a chipmunk/Khloe Kardashian. And then she says funny things like "My ultimate dream is to move to Jersey, find a nice juiced hot tanned guy and live my life." WOW. Haha. Anyway, I even have a list of favorite quotes so far:

If you want to look somewhat like The Situation, which is gonna be pretty hard, you need to get that protein in your diet.
- The Situation

Everybody at the Shore definitely knows The Situation. As far as I know, everybody loves The Situation, and if you don't love The Situation, I'm gonna make you love The Situation.
- Theee Situation

I was born and raised a guido. It's just a lifesty|e it's being Italian, it's representing, family, friends, tanning, gel, everything.
- Pauly D

You just take your shirt off and they come to you, it's like a fly comes to sh*t.
- Ronnie

How do you go in a f*cking jacuzzi with a thong and a bra? Wear a thong bikini , that's a little bit more cla$$ier if you're gonna wear anything at all, ya know what I mean?
- Angelina

I feel like this job is beneath me, I'm a bartender. I do, like, great things.
- Angelina

Anyway, hope everyone is doing well and what not :) Happy week and hope everyone has a good winter break! :)

I am officially nineteen years old today.

- Helloooo party people :) Guess what?! IT'S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY! I am 19 :) How's everyone doing? I've been doing good, just super busyyyy with school and whatnot. I had an exam in my Western Civ cla-ss today and it was pretty tough, so I'm hoping for a B and higher *crosses fingers* And I had a paper due in my Society thru Lit cla-ss and ahh I'm so happy I got done with it; I felt like a million pounds were lifted off my shoulders when I turned it in this morning.

My weekend was AWESOME :) I went home for the weekend because my cousin, Bianca, was getting married and I was a bridesmaid :) The wedding/reception were pretty fun! I had sort of early in the morning for everything which was sucky, but everything after that was good. At like 8AM all the of us (bridesmaids and the bride) went out for breakfast. Afterwards, all of us went to get out hair/make-up done and that took a while, haha :P Kidding! Sort of. It did take a few hours because there were 9 bridemaids and then the bride. Then took pictures. For. Freaking. Ever. I got sick of smiling haha. We took pictures with the professional photographer and then my Mom and Aunts took a bazillion pictures. Then finally, it was time for the wedding! The ceremony was beautiful and the vows, * le sigh* so cute! The groom, Mark was talking about when they first met and all of this stuff :) Then it was time for more pictures :roll: Haha. Then it was reception time! The food was so good! Filet mignon :) Yummyyy! And the cake was red velvet! It was soooo good, my cousin Kayla was like "it's like an orgasm in my mouth!" :lol: Then some people gave speeches, most of them were really funny and a few were sentimental. Then we danceddddddd :D :) And I did the father/daughter dance with my Daddy. We were missing my sister (she was supposed to be a bridesmaid too, but she had clinicals and was busy with school so she couldn't come into town) so I took out my phone that had a picture of her on it and we 'danced' with her haha.

Bride & Groom
Me & my groomsman (sp?), Dennis (I blocked him out because I barely knew him so I felt uncomfortable posting his pic)

Bridesmaids minus 1 lol. Btw, how funny is Trinity (1st from left) is mean muggin' Christina :P
From left, Chirstina, Trinity, Kelsey, Bianca (the bride) and the maid of honor, Anna, Isabelle, Dee, Me, and Jenna.

Sunday was pretty chill day for me. I had brunch with the fam and then I hung out with Alyssa. We went to the movies and saw Paranormal Activity. It was HELLA scary. It was just so realistic and ahh I just get chills thinking about it. :? After the movies, we went out for dinner and then I went back to my dorm and studied like a mad woman. Then I crashed at like 11:15. Then at midnight, Jen and Heat woke me up! They were singing happy birthday in their horrible singing voices and they gave me a cupcake! :) Tehehe. And this morning Jen, Heat, Autumn, Theo, Caleb, Noah, and Courtney all took me out for breakfast :D And we're gonna go out for dinner tonight, so I am excited for PRESENTS! (even though, I've already recieved some today! So far I've gotten....
- Phonecall/money transferred to my account from my parents :)
- Phonecall/money/dinner date with my Grandma
- Voicemail from my sister saying she fed-ex'd my present home. She won't tell me what she got me though, grrrr.
- Phonecall from my brother who said he just got me another Columbia (yayay, I loveee Columbias!) and that he will give it to me whenever we hang out on Friday
- Voicemails/Texts from Erin, Lauren, Lindsay, Danny, Zeke, Jamie, Nick, Luke and a bunch of other people.

So I don't have an definitive birthday plans yet, but I know I am partying! Woot woot :D Friday, I am hanging out with my brother and then Danny said he wanted to hang out, but I am not sure if I'm ready for that because it's only been like 2 weeks since we broke up and I'm still trying to deal with it. But who knows. Then on Saturday I'll probably hang out with Heat, Jen & everyone else. And on Sunday, me & my HS friends are going out for din din :D I'm so excited! But tonight, I'm not doing anything besides dinner and then I am rushing back home to watch OTH and GG! I love OTH so much this season, it's so good. I actually changed my icon to my short-lived ship, Sara/Clay. They were love! And who else is excited for the OM3 on GG tonight?! I can't wait! I wonder who it'll be. Probably Nate and someone else haha.

Hope you guys have a wonderful week :)

i finally blogged again.

Helloooo :) Hey there, hi, it's me Candace :) And yes, I'm still alive lol. How is everyone? I'm doing pretty well. I know I promised I would get on here like once a week and so far, I've been really bad about that, but I've just been so busy lately with school and everything.

So a few weeks ago Alyssa moved out of the dorms because she learned that her Mom got breast cancer :( :( :( She's still going to school with us and stuff, but she moved back home so she could spend time with her Mom while she's going through treatment. Her Mom's one of nicest people, like, ever and I feel so bad for her :( She started chemo like a week ago and it's been a little rough on her. Jen, Autumn, Heat, and Courtney all went to this salon on Thursday where her Mom cut off all her hair and it was so sad/inspiring. I deff. cried but her Mom was so brave. She kept telling us live our lives to the fullest and spend time with the people that really matter, because life is so short.

Anyway, I'm on fall break right now! Gah, it's so good to finally get a break from school. I've been studying like crazzzzy this past week for mid-terms and stuff. I think I did pretty well on all of them except for my Calc one...I think I got C on it, but that's okay I guess. I'm only shooting for a B in that cla$$ anyway lol. Yay mediocrity! :P Ah, so being home is a little weird lol. It feels weird not sleeping in my twin bed in my dorm, but I guess it's okay because I loveee my bed at home. Plus, home-cooked meals! Yayayay.

So my weekend was prettyfreakin'awesome! I hung out with Erin for the first time in like a month! We went shopping and caught up a.k.a. gossiped lol. Then that night, we went out to dinner with Lindsay and Lauren at Applebee's. And then after we dropped them off, Erin and I drove around till like midnight, rockin' out to Britney Spears and Gucci Mane. It was great. Haha. Then Sunday, I just hung out with the parentals and watched my Gossip Girl DVD's with my Momma; she thinks Derena are the awesomest thing since sliced bread. Hah.

And today, I just slept, ate, watching more GG, and downloaded a TON of music. And my new song obsession is "Season of Love" by Shiny Toy Guns -- it's the song that was playing when Chuck told Blair he l-o-v-e-'d her and according to my iTunes, I've apparently listened to it 62 times since I downloaded it today lol. I'm obsessed with it! It's so cuuute. And tomorrow is my last day of fall break, so I'm gonna have breakfast with the 'rents and then I'm gonna go hang out in Danny's dorm room till he gets out of cla$$ and then we're gonna go eat and then we're gonna go kick-boxing! It's so much fun, we've been going every Tues and Thurs for the past few weeks since he has it at the gym he goes to so yep.

Happy week :)

I loveee college + Friday Night Lights (:

by on

Helloooo :) Have you guys missed meee?! :D I know you did :lol: I'm not gonna lie, I've sort of missed this site and the awesome people on it! How was the end of everyone's summer? I assume everyone's started school, so how're you guys liking freshman/soph/junior/senior year? Well, as you can tell from my title I LOVEEEE COLLEGE! It's been a great 2 weeks so far and the workload is more than in HS, but it's all good :)

Move-in was a little chaotic because of desk issues and the rush of it all, but it all got worked out! And orientation was pretty boring...more tours/hall visits/met our RA's (mine was funny)/rules/policies, blah. But I did meet some fun people. As you know, Jen is my roomate and then the girls that live next door to us are Alyssa and Heather and I absolutely love them! Alyssa is the probably one of nicest person I've ever met after Jamie and Jen. She's so sweet and she always has cookies/candy so I totally mooch junk food off of her lol. And Heat (Heather) is freakin' crazy, but in a good way! She always wants to party and go out but is really serious about her studies; she sort of reminds me of Eriiin. And out of the people I've met so far, I mostly hang out with them, Autumn, Henry, Caleb, and Theo because they're the best :D

The first two weeks have flown by pretty fast, it was just cla$$, food, exploring campus/stuff around campus, weekend fun, sleep, and homework! I thought homework in college was gonna be super tough, but it's really not. It's just a lot of reading which isn't too bad. Calc is by far my hardest cla$$, but I think I'm managing. My first paper is due next week :? It's for my Hist 103 and I am a bit nervous because it'll be my first college paper ever, but I hope I do okay. Wish me luck :) Society and Lit is my favorite cla$$ though, I love our discussions! Today, somehow, we started talking about Twilight and almost everyone was totally sippin' Twilight Hateorade and I was just like :evil: Twilight is awesome; Edward Cullen is still loveee © Hist 106 is really interesting because I love World History so I am loving all of it. Child Psych is okay I guess, but there's this really annoying immature dude in my cla$$ who keeps making refrences to A Child Called It and that whole series of books. It's pretty annoying.

Anyway, college parties are FUUUUN :D My first ever college party as a freshman was really chill...just people hanging out and talking, some dancing, and drinking. And I had a pretty good time and I *gasp* drank *hides* lol. I felt sort of disappointed in myself because in HS I was all 'drinking is lame' and there I am drinking in college lol. I only drank one beer, though :) But um, this past Labor Day weekend was frakkin' awsesomeee! On Saturday, me, Heat, Autumn, Alyssa, Jen, Henry, and Caleb went to this Frat party and it was crazyyy fun...lots of dancing and drinking lol. I didn't get drunk but God, Heat was totally smashed. She kept singing Ice Cream Paint Job (a.k.a. my current fave song ever) and she kept repeating "Yeaaah buddy, rollin' like a big shot!" to everyone, it was pretty funny. Then on Sunday, Heat's sister was having a party at her apartment so we all went and pretty much everyone got wasted. I think I woke up drunk lol. My head was hurting really bad :( But I had fun that night! I danced a lot and I remember talking to Danny and Zeke on the phone and they were just like, "You? Drunk? Whaaaat?" Lol. Anyway, I sort of felt bad because I missed dinner with the parents on Monday due to my hangover :| But my Momma called me and she's like "I know what you probably did this weekend...just make sure to get rest and Tylenol always helps." ;)

So I finally changed my icon to my new obsession: Matt and Julie from Friday Night Lights (which has become one of my favorite shows). Matt/Julie *le sigh* are sooo cute! The way he tells her he loves her is the most unromantic way ever but I still love it. They're just like in his car and Julie's totally about to get in trouble for missing curfew and she has this 'I'm gonna be grounded for life' look on her face and Matt's just like "I love you." Awh. In case you can't already tell Matt's my favorite 'guy' character along with Riggins and Landry. Tyra and Julie are my favorite 'girl' characters. I just don't really like Lyla for some reason, she annoys me. Oh and Coach and Tami are really cute too! And I just adore all of their southern accents especially Rigs' when he says "Texas forever." Oh and I freakin' love their Football team saying "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose." So cute. And GG comes back next week...yayayay! I'm so excited for the new season and I can't wait for some CB lovin'!

Hope you guys have a good week :) And I will try to get on here at least once a week from now on :)

Oh and Liverpool plays this weekend *crosses fingers for Fernando/Stevie & Co.* :) I hope they win because then I will be a happy camper! :)

My last blog, ever...

by on

Helloooo :) How are you guys? I'm doing pretty well :) I'm sorry I haven't been on here as much, I've just been busy packing, working, and spending times with the fam and my pals. Anyway, I'm just really excited for college! It's almost here -- only 7 more days! :D :) :D I can't believe it's so close, I am so freakin' amped I can't even explain it. Jen and I move in the 20th and cla$$es start the 24th. I'm taking Society and Literature, Calculus I, History 106 (Western Civiliazations), Intro to Child Psych, and History 103 (American Pluralism). A few people have told me that my cla$$es seem hard, but I'm not too worried about any of the cla$$es besides Calculus (because, you know, math is the suckiest subject ever), and as for my other cla$$es, from what I've heard about my professors, they seem pretty great so we'll see how it goes :)

Anyway, my Mom's been driving me nuts lately lol. She keeps complaning about how she's gonna be an "empty nester" and all this crap. And my Dad's not nearly as bad, because he knows I'll call/visit/text/e-mail them. So that's why I've decided that every Sunday, I'll come home for the day since campus is only like 20-25 minutes away (depending on traffic) from my house, so it won't be too bad. And now, my Mom's, like, one freakin' cloud nine lol :) Anyway, Jen and I are officially done shopping for our dorm stuff! Our dorm is gonna be awesome ;) The room that we got is pretty much the biggest on the floor in that hall so we are verrry excited and we don't really have to share a bathroom -- the bathrooms are semi-private because you only have to share with the people next door to your room so I'm sure it'll work out pretty great! Plus, we have BUNK BEDS!

So Tuesday was a bittersweet day because we had our last hangout session with everyone (well, almost everyone besides Zeke, Dustin, and Jen). It was fun, but I sad because this would be our last time together before we all went off to college. We BBQ'd at Nick and Lauren's house and just hung out in the backyard and then we went to the park. We attempted to make nostalgic speeches, but it didn't work because Luke, Danny, or Erin would make a joke of it. But Jamie was the only one who succeeded out of everyone. Sort of lol. She was like, "I just wanna tell you guys that you are my best friends, and that I will cherish all the times we had together. I love you all, and make sure to keep in touch." Aw :) And then of course she started crying along with Lauren, Linds, and me. And then Erin turned to me and was like, "I'm surprised you're not crying." And I was like, "I'm trying not to." And then later we had a little chat in which we quoted VM!

Erin: So try not cry and whatnot, but I just wanna say that I had a great time hanging out with you this summer and that you're pretty much my BFF.
Me: *laughing* You're my BFF too.
Erin: I'm gonna miss you, girl...and your stupid a$$ face.
*Erin & Me lmao-ing*
Me: I'll miss your dumb a$$ face too, Veronica.
Erin: Aw, Wallace, you're so sweet!

Anyway, everything's pretty much been the same, nothing new has happened besides me getting a laptop! It's a Toshiba and I like it, it works pretty well. But the only thing I hate is when I come on this site, I can't comment! I click on the 'add comment' thing and it page scrolls up to the top :roll: I don't know how to fix it, so I've been using my desktop computer for the last couple of days. If anyone can tell me how to fix this issue, it would be awesome of you :) Anyway, I would just like to apologize in advance right now for not commenting on people's blogs and stuff when I go off to school. I probably won't be around much, so yeah, I guess I'm leaving? But I dunno, I will still try to get on here at least once a month and see what you guys are up too! Anyway, you guys are all awesome and I will miss ya'll and you guys better miss me :P

Peace + lotsa lovvveee,
Candace :)

P.S., I will miss all of your stupid 'faces' (or usernames, I guess?) :P :)


College Excitedness + Kareoke + The Summer I Turned Pretty/13 Reasons Why

by on
Helloooo :) So according to the site, I haven't blogged in a month. Lie. I blogged a week ago, but it disappeared :( Anyway, how are you guys? I've been doing pretty well :)

So I just looked at my calander and guess what?! Only 20 more days till I move into my dorm and only 24 days cla$$es actually start :) Holy biscuits and toast, man! That's so closeee :) I can't wait. And I'm even more excited because at this party that I went to last Friday, I met a whole bunch of people that I'll be going to school with and I made some friends. All the people I met were pretty cool, but Autumn, Courtney, and Henry are my besties. They're all so funny, especially Henry. He's an army brat, so he's lived in a bunch of countries and he was telling me and Courtney about it and he's like "I know 4 languages, that makes me, like. . .hella-lingual." :lol:

Anyway, has this week gone by fast for anyone else besides me? It feels like it was Monday just yesterday! I guess it's gone by so fast for me because I worked pretty much all week. But that's okay because I am making that paper :P ;) But yesterday, I had a pretty great day because the whole crew (Me, Jen, Erin, Jamie, Danny, Linds, Lauren, Nick, Trey, Dustin, and Luke) hung out and it was awesome besides Zeke not being there, but we webcammed with him. And it was sort of weird to see him lol, he SO tan, even tanner than he usually is! I'm not gonna lie, I was sort of jealous. But he told me he bought me some and I quote "amazing Greek tanning oil," so I'm excited :D After we webcammed, we played kareoke! That was sooo much fun! Listening to Dustin murder one of my favorite country songs ever was hilarious. He was singing Come A Little Closer by Dierks Bentley and it was horrible. And then Linds sang, Always Be My Baby by Mariah Carey and wow, she should totally try out for American Idol because she would be the next William Hung. She stretched out all the ah's and oh's :lol: Plus, there were so many awesome one-liner's last night...

Me: Let's web cam with him.
Danny: Sounds dirty.

Erin: Roger that swagger.

Lauren: And she was like, 'I don't like you.' And I was like, 'Well I'm not surprised. I am very awesome, so I can understand why you're jealous.'

*boos and lotsss of laughing at Dustin*
Danny: Aw man, don't you just feel like you got voted off of Survivor or something?
Dustin: Yeah, man.
Me: Well, the tribe has spoken...
Danny:...And you suck.

*watching a lil wayne music video*
Erin: He's so hot.
Me and Jen: Ew.
Erin: He's beautiful.
*Erin spills soda*
Me: Omg! Did you just jiz*z?
Erin: Yes, yes I did. I just jiz*z* my pants!
^Have you guys ever seen the jiz**z*ed in my pants video on YouTube? It's hilarious!

Linds: Liar! You called her a slut before too!
Luke: No, I called her the town wh*re. There's a difference.

Cody (Jamie's little cousin): I know who Lil Wayne is, but who is this Weezy guy?

Jamie: God, she's brighter than the Gay Pride Flag!

Nick: We're the two gangsters...
Danny: Oh yes, because you two grew up in mean the suburban streets of the North Shore. (Would be funnier, if I could actually write what suburb I live in...)

So I've been reading like crazzzzy this whole summer and over the weekend I finished reading The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han and Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. The Summer I Turned Pretty was SO good. The storyline seemed typical, but it really wasn't. Belly's (Isabel) is totally in love with Conrad (she's been in love with him since she was 10), but he's always seen her as a little sister. Anyway, Belly attempts to move on and all of this other stuff happens and then there's this twist to the story that you totally don't see coming and it's so sad. I cried. But that scene in the book is beautiful, I mean, if it's even possible for words on a page to be beautiful, but they totally were. The ending wasn't your typical 'happy ending' but I loved it. It felt...complete and hopeful, like there was gonna be a fresh start. Then I read TRW and it was fantastic. It was a page turner -- you just wanted to know why Clay was on that last and why Hannah killed herself. While reading the book though, I became really mad. I felt like Hannah was blaming everyone ELSE for her suicide instead of partially blaming herself. And how she said that the last person who got the tapes "should take them to hell with themselves" pissed me off because Mr. Porter tried helping, Clay tried helping but she pushed them away. I dunno, but overall the book was awesome and the ending was very different. It was hopeful. I would write more, but I don't want to spoil the plotline.

Oh and I finally changed my's CB of course. It's a set photo of them filming a scene :) They're so cute. And then I changed my banner to Liverpool because they are the best team everrrr. And I love who Ronaldo is 'walking alone.' Anyway, have a good week/weekend :)

Weekend/Week + Roswell + Quiz

by on
Helloooo friends! :) How's everyone's summer so far? Does anyone have any big vacay plans? If you do, I am so jealous of you! This is the first summer I'm not going on vacation anywhere and it's weird because now I don't have anything big to look forward to.

Happy late Father's Day to everyone :) It was a good Daddy's Day weekend for me and for my Dad because we got him an awesome present; Kristen, Alex, and I got him tickets to a White Sox game :) Anyway, we had a family BBQ at my Uncle's house and it was fun. Most of my cousins were there so it was nice to catch up with everyone. And the food was also good too :D Monday, I went to the beach with Will, Becky, Erin, and Caleb and I got even tanner. I mean, I am one dark chick.

Tuesday, I worked pretty much all day and then I watched the first half of S3 of Roswell. Wednesday, I went to the gym (which I've been doing on and off. . .I like running on the treadmill there better than in my own home lol) and did yoga with Kristen and it was actually fun :) I'm not as sore as I was the first time I did yoga so that's good! And today, I worked and I probably won't do anything tonight because I am so tired.

Last night, I finished watching Roswell! I cried during the last episode, it was such a good show and I'm pissed it's cancelled! Though, season Three was 'okay' compared to seasons one and two which were amazingggg. The series finale made me want more and I'm still wondering what happened to them since they were on the run. Almost everyone got their happy ending -- Liz/Max got married; Michael/Maria got back together (officially) and the one scene between them pretty much shows why they are the best couple on that show (that's right: better than Max/Liz).
Michael: I wanted to say that this thing has been screwed up from the beginning. You and me. Us. Just the whole long, stupid story...
Maria: ...Thanks...
Michael: But I wouldn't trade it for anything. It's meant so much to me, y'know. From day one, from the moment I kidnapped you and stole your car... I knew you were the girl for me. I never wanted anyone else...
Maria: Michael...
Michael: I still don't. Just... Wherever I'm goin', whatever I'm doin', just know I'll always love you.

Grad + Summer + ROSWELL

by on

Helloooo :) So wowwwww, I haven't blogged in a while and I haven't been on this website much either; I've kind of missed this site a little. Weird. Anyway, a lot has happened these past two weeks. First and foremost, I graduated high school on May 30th :) :D It was great and I didn't even cry! :P Well, until the lock-in lol. Grad was sort of...boring, a lot of teachers gave speeches and blah blah, the valedictorian's speech was the best though. After grad, I had my graduation party at this restaurant -- a bunch of my family was there and my friends and it was fun.

Then after that it was time for the lock-in which was awesomeee! I played poker and black jack for like 2 hours straight lol. I sucked in the begining but I got better towards the end. I ended up with $3,000 ;) Then I played volleyball and that was really, really fun. It made me realize how much I missed playing it :| So I've actually been thinking of joining a summer league or something. Anyway, around 2AM, our whole cla-ss gathered up to watch our 'memory video' which is basically a collection of photos and videos of our cla-ss since like kindergarten up to this year. And that's pretty much when I started crying. Like, it finally hit me that high school was over and I couldn't believe it. It was sad. High school was great, I mean the homework and the projects and the tests/quizzes did suck, but the whole experience was worth it. I met so many good people and I had so many good times -- in school and outside of school. It was a good 4 years :)

So it's summertime officially :) I haven't much of anything done this past week. I've mostly just been working and hanging out with my friends and hanging out at my brother's apartment (I unofficially live there now lol). Anyway, a lot of my friends have already left for the summer :( Zeke left for Greece on Friday. We all met up at his house and we said our goodbyes, Jamie was the first one to start crying and then I started crying and then pretty much all the girls started crying, besides Erin (who btw, totally had tears in her eyes, but would just not cry lol). And Danny left for basketball camp this morning :( I miss him and this summer's gonna be weird without him. Anyway, Linds and Jen are leaving next week :| And Paige and Jamie are leaving in a couple of weeks. Blah. It all really sucks. I'm gonna miss everyone so much. But at least I still have Eriiiiin :)

Anyway, I have a new obsession: ROSWELL :) Kristen and I are totally obsessed with it! I just finished watching S2 last night and I can't wait for Kristen to get S3 from her friend because I need to find out what happens. The show itself, is really, really good. I mean I was even like 'this is weird' at first because Max, Michael, and Isabel are aliens and all of this other weird stuff, but it's not weird at all. The plotline is awesome and the love stories are amazing. Liz and Max are like the main love story but they don't compare at all to Michael and Maria who have become like my favorite couple in television history -- I mean, they are up at #1 with Naley, LoVe, and CB. First off, Michael is like this badass -- all cold and sarcastic and Maria is just this bubbly sarcastic person and they just bring out the best in each other. I love the way they first spent time together. Michael (who pretty much never comes to school) is partnered up with Maria for this cla-ss project. Anyway, Michael "kidnapps" Maria (he actually just needed to borrow her car) and she totally flips out on him. It's hilarious. And then when the car breaks down is just totally priceless! And then later they fight some more and then bond because they both want "something better than Roswell, New Mexico." :) Anyway, they are soo cute together because at first, Michael is the worst boyfriend ever, I mean the dude buys her generic shampoo as a gift lol, but then at the end of S1 (when the aliens have to go save Nasedo) and Maria's like "why is it so easy for you to let me go?" And he's like "because I love you too much." Awwww :) Anyway, during S2 Michael and Maria aren't really together until mid-season, but yeah at the end of the season when Max, Isabel, Michael and Tess are all supposed to go home (to their planet), Michael says he can't leave because Earth is his home and he pretty much stayed for Maria :) Lol ya, anyway, I'm totally obsessed with these two and I can't wait to watch S3.

Have a good week :)

today was my last day of HS!

by on
Helloooo :) Ahh so guess what today was?! MY LAST DAY OF HIGH SCHOOL :) I can't believe it's actually like, over lol. It's been a grrreat 4 years, but I'm sort of glad it's done with because college is gonna be awesome! Grad is only 12 days awayyyy! I can't wait because our Senior Lock-In is gonna be freaking awesome!

My weekend was pretty non-eventful. Saturday, we helped my brother move into his apartment :| It was sort of weird and sad because he's been living with me for my whole life and now he's moving out and it's just weird lol. After he was all moved in, my sister and I just hung out with him and his roomate; we pretty much ate pizza and played pool the whole night. I beat everyone but my brother of course :) Sunday, I worked and I finished up writing my paper for my French final (which I took today).

OTH and GG finales tonight :) So excited for CB!

*. . .and when a heart breaks, it don't break even

by on

Blog title: Break Even by The Script a.k.a my current favorite song :) It's awesome.

Helloooo :) How's everyone's week so far? Mine's been pretty good :) It's been a stressful week though, due to AP exams :( They sort of suck. I took the one for Stats Tuesday and I'm I think I did okay -- I probably got like a 3 or 4 :) And I took the Literature one today which wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I actually think I did pretty well. *Crosses fingers*

Anyway, this week's been pretty good besides AP testing. On Monday, Danny came over and we ate Chinese and I made him watch Gossip Girl and OTH with me ;) It was fun. He didn't really understand GG all that much but he said Dan was his favorite (not only because they share a name) but because he was the only normal one lol. He was like "so Gossip Girl version in Chicago would be like Lauren sitting at lunch and telling everyone everybody else's busniess." :P He didn't like OTH, said it was boring, which ITA with. Tuesday and Wednesday were a blur or studying and work and yep. This week's gone by pretty fast.

So there's only a week and a couple of days of school left for me :) :D May 18th is my last day :) I'm soo excited. I've been so unmotivated lately and school's just been boring. We're not really doing much in most of my cla$$es, we're just reviewing for finals and that's pretty much it. Next week is awards day and our Senior Luncheon so that should be fun. Then we're also gonna have our Senior Picnic and we're going to the beach, woot woot! I'm really excited for that. And then grad is May 30th :)

And then it's summertime :) / :| This summer is kinda gonna suck. Everyone's gonna be gone. Lindsay and Jen are doing this camp counselor thing, Danny has basketball camp and then he's gonna spend like a week with his family in Virginia, Zeke's going to Greece, Jamie and Paige are both going to Michigan since Paige is moving out there for college so they're gonna stay with her Aunt for the summer, Kayla's going to Spain with her Spanish cla$$, Lauren's taking a few summer cla$$es at the community college, and then there's me: Candace, not doing anything besides work and being lame :? It just sort of sucks. Erin, Nick, and me are the only ones not really doing anything. And even Dustin (who's like the most unmotivated person on the planet) is doing something this summer! He's taking some summer cla$$es too. Idk, I just feel like I'm just gonna be working and going to the beach and missing everyone while everyone else is like, living life. My brother is moving out -- him and his friends got an apartment already and my sister's gonna be gone for most of the summer too -- she's going to Cali, Arizona, and Colorado (or was it Utah? I don't remember) with Seth and some of her friends. And my Dad's gonna be business-tripping like all summer and my Mom's gonna be working and I'm gonna be here lame and bored. And blah. Idk, I was actually thinking of doing something productive and like getting a job at the History Center or something but I dunno. Anyway, sorry I'm being all whiny but I just had to let that out.

Have a good week :)
