Subject:STEVEN!
Time:12:12 am.
So thanks to steven's procrastinating, I returned to livejournal for the first time in more than 2 and a half years. Amazing how much a part of my life this used to be. Now I have better things to do. Like watch Gossip Girl and stay up until 4 in the morning surfing Youtube. From one internet distraction to another.

Well, It's been fun LJ. See you in another 2 and a half years.

Mood: excited.
So.

I haven't updated since the end of highschool.

I leave for college in less than twelve hours.

What the hell?

I've been literally sitting around waiting to leave, but now that it's time to go, I feel sad. I'm going to miss my friends that are staying, especially Jackie, but I expected that.

What surprises me, is that I'm going to miss simple things.

Like my bed. My desk. My cat. The faded book that's been on my windowsill for 2 years. Laying on my couch at 3 in the morning in the dark listening to the paper hit the door. The mustiness under my bed.

I should go to bed, because, well, it's three am. I am going to take advantage of my awesome mattress one more time before I'm robbed of it for 3 months.

College is gonna rock my socks off. I know it.

Livejournal. Weird. I always come back though.

Mood: no more VSAA?.
I can't sleep. Two more days of high school. Tomorrow is my last English class with Jackie, my last crazy Stats love day with angelbeck, my last... vocal class. My last Vocal Class? no more Ms. Green? what am I going to do!?!? It's really hitting me now. School is over. two more days, and then everything is done. What the heck will my life be like without VSAA every day?

For those of you who don't know, I had kind of a strange crisis/blessing happen about a week ago. I was all registered, signed up for orientation, and applied for housing at USC when I got a package from Northwestern. They let me off of the wait list. I got in to my DREAM SCHOOL! but when I sat back and thought about it, I was already really excited to go to USC. I signed up for the coolest classes, in these little groups (learning communities), and everyone in the groups had little planned outings to disneyland and hollywood. it sounded like a blast. Well, long story short, I ended up choosing Northwestern. I'm thrilled, and it is going to be the time of my life... cold, but wonderful and enlightening.

I got an email today from the learning community I signed up for at USC. I've already canceled enrollment, but I guess it didn't get all the way through the system. I got in to my first choice USC learning community. They are really excited to see me in the fall. I had a little twinge of regret reading that. It was hard for me to change my mind so late in the game.

I know that Northwestern is the place for me though.

Alright. I still have not started work on my math project and I need to finish up thank you notes that need to be delivered tomorrow. There is a party in math and I need to get my hands on some peaches and lemonade. Too bad its three in the morning. not a whole lot of produce stores open right now.

P.S Sorry I never update. It's lame I know. I'll probably update more frequently over summer... When high school is over. Agh!

I haven't updated in forever.

My life... hmmm, how could I describe it as of now?

School = painful. I never thought I would get senioritis, I always believed I could allude its painful grip. I was wrong. It isn't that I don't like school... it's just that I don't want to do school. boo.

College = pretty rocking. I applied to six schools. so far, I've been accepted to USC and Loyola University Chicago, and they both gave me merit scholarship stuff, so I'm really excited about that. I'm still waiting on my top two choices, Northwestern and Middlebury, but no matter what happens, I am content.

Play = Over! last week was closing night for my last highschool play ever. It kind of scares me to think about the fact that I may never be in a play again, but at the same time, I am so excited to have free time at the end of my senior year. Playing Snoopy was a fun ride. Maybe I will continue theatre in college. Who knows.

Snow = Awesome! I went skiing for the first time in two years today, and it was some of the best powder I've ever glided over. Hannah and Camille and I had a fun time going down the moderately difficult slopes and looking ridiculous at times, while Brad and Max and his dad did crazy daredevil type stuff. Plus... it snowed at my house on Thursday! there was snowballage!

Boyfriend = love. We've been together for, well, it seems like a long long time. 21 months. I love him as much and more every day.

Spring Break = Gonna be super-dee-duper! I'm heading to Chicago to visit Loyola (The one college that I applied to but did not visit first) and hopefully I'll get to hang out with my cousins, see old friends, and enjoy the city. Plus I might get to hang out with my good buddy Maika who's looking at Loyola that same week. Woo-hoo!

So that is pretty much my life right now. Maybe I'll actually start updating with some regularity now that I have time... yeah... we'll see.

It is three in the morning.

I am pissed off because of college applications. enraged even. I can't sleep. soooo furious.

So instead, I uploaded a whole bunch of new pictures. So because I can't sleep, here is the end of 2005 in the life of Danni. (picture diary!)

It all started about three months ago...Collapse )</lj-cut? There are a lot of pictures under that cut... but also a lot of fun! Okay, that cheered me up a little bit. Happy new year all!

Time:10:02 pm.
Mood: Conflicted.
I got so excited about having a day off, having another day to do homework and college applications, playing in the snow, watching it's a wonderful life!

And then I realized that my last christmas vocal showcase is going to be cancelled. The movie night isn't going to happen. I'm going to miss the yellow team rep breakfast. All of these things make me very sad.

I don't know how to feel at this very moment. I wish I had everything done right now so I could play and frolic tomorrow. But instead I feel obligated to work my butt off with the time graciously given to me. What to do what to do. I

I think the only clear descision is to stay up uber late, and get up early.

tengo muchas cosas hacer. Es no bueno.

Amid the Winter's cold embrace/clothed in a shroud of white/an anxious world in silence waits/through the dark of night. As the lonely song of the dove/echos across the sky above/we can feel the moment is near/soon the child of peace will appear.

So, the purpose of this post is to help me with my college application, and I know you all want to do that! Anyway, for USC, there is a portion of the application that asks you cute little questions like your favorite food and band and so forth. One of the questions on there is 3 words to describe yourself. I'd appreciate it if you guys would comment with three words (honestly) that you think describe me. Danke! oh, and just for good measure, here is a beautiful picture of the seniors from menucha!Collapse )

I'm having a rough night. I am quite hungry and moody, and I just want to go to sleep but I can't seem to get into the groove. This entry will mean nothing, but I just needed to say this somewhere. Okay, I'm going to go lie in bed again.

Mood: stressed.
This weekend was very much quite good. The only thing that made it not good, is sitting here right now. I'm looking at some of the college applications for schools I'm interested in and the essay questions aren't similar at all!!! I really don't want to write 8 essays. I hope I can reuse at least one of them. Bragh. Also, I'm worried that I'm going to slack off with all the pressure. Anyway, Right now, besides college, I feel pretty good. I finished a good book, and now I'm reading the Importance of Being Earnest. It's pretty darn good. I plan to go make some tea, and I have some mini hershey bars, Everything is good except college.

I went to see Max play a soccer game this weekend. It's the first one I've seen him play since last November. He's still fabulous. It turns out, Kelsey Vargas is on his new team. Anyone remember him? HAHA! He still walks like he used to. After that we went back to his house and his sister was having a soccer party for her team. Man, for someone who doesn't play soccer, I'm certainly surrounded by it. Maybe I'll play on a Club team in college. That would be fun! Ugh. College. I need to stop thinking about it.

First Monday Tomorrow! Yay short periods! yay watching Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights in English! Okay I'm done rambling.

Mood: Awesome.
Good evening all!

So, I can't seem to reset my internal clock. I wake up at 7:45 (Which an hour later than I ever woke up for school in the last 2 years.) But I still expect to feel tired at some point of the day. Last night I got 4 hours asleep, so I think "wow, I'll be dragging by 5, and maybe I'll be zonked enough by 10:30 to get in bed and get some real sleep. But all day long I'm going strong, and here it is 12:30 and I just got out of the shower and am starting a new book. Something isn't right with this scenario.

So. School. Right. Whatev! It's way better than I was expecting, except I'm kind of sad that Oliver's out. Since sixth grade I've been hyped about a musical my senior year, where I might actually have a chance at getting a part. But this bummness is on my back burner right now. What I'm really excited (and weirded out by) is that the two classes I am most excited about right now are AP Statistics, and Chemistry. Whoa there! Yeah, this year, My favorite classes are shaping up to be with Anglebeck and the New Guy. I was planning on calling him JT, but I think I'll just christen him the New Guy with caps, and everything will work out fine. Who woulda thunk it eh?

I bet you guys can't guess what is going to be the biggest blast of the century... eh? eh?


MENUCHA BABY!!!!!

Oh yeah. Who's with me on flashlight tag? I wonder who is going to do Scavenger hunt this year? it was sectionals last year, but really, Spenser and Chris always did the work. I think Gabe and I should become a team and create the most badass scavenger hunt ever. Hmmm. I'll have to discuss that with him. Okay, so the end of this entry because I'm excited to go read more of my book. Woohoo! yay school, yay for College being after this year! Yay!

I'm so bummed that summer is ending. Everyone is leaving, or has left, and I feel more sad than I really should. I know I need to just enjoy my senior year, but at the same time, I want everyone to be happy. I guess mostly I'm just worried about Max. His good friends have all graduated, with the exception of steven who is like a bagillion miles away. I love him, and I want him to be happy, but I know that I can't do it alone. I know this is crazy logic, and he's a big boy, sure to make it through fine. He has a great bunch of friends though. Good people, who can really make him smile. Isn't it great to be with your friends? I spent some wonderful time with friends this summer, and I'm so happy that I have people who I can really care about, and who care about me. Plus, having good times doesn't hurt either right?

Happy New School Year Everyone!

nostalgia!Collapse )
P.S I suck cause I lost on my first try on eBay. Plus I still need to finish my Lit project. but a plus is I see Pink Martini tomorrow!! and hopefully Night Swimming! Yay! Labor day!

Time:5:57 pm.
Mood: creative.
I strongly dislike thunderstorms. I know it's foolish, but I can't help it. I spent the majority of today holding on to my cat a bit too tightly, since he is the only one around. Hopefully, the rest of my last week of summer will be more interesting than today was. I pretty much watched a movie, made some food, bummed around, made myself up for fun and then washed it all off... Yeah, not too exciting. I have big plans and big expectations for the rest of the week though. Oh, I got my senior pictures taken on friday. It was a lot of fun, and I hope they turned out. I really liked the guy who took them, he was very spontaneous, and we talked about Celeste and Dylan and Chris... he was saying great things about them. Also, I went to a mariners game on Saturday with Max and my parents, it was so much fun. We were rooting for the Whitesox of course, and it was really funny to watch other peoples reactions while we cheered at their misfortune. Also, we saw Los Lobos at the Wine and Jazz festival. That was pretty cool. Which brings us to today, my fear mounting as the thunder continues. Anyway, If anyone was wondering, here's my schedule, a few days late. I already know I have classes with a few of you, especially chem per. 3. yeesh. Everyone and their brother has that class.

1. AP Current World Government - My boy Tulaners.
2. AP World Lit - Hackie Sacks
3. Chem - Tortora
4. AP Statistics - Anglebeck
5. Theatre Focus - Judy
6. Vocal Focus - Ms. Green

And hopefully I will be working something out with Ms. Pilon to have her mentor me for a spanish 4 type class zero period. She is teaching only french this year, but her class is small, and the spanish zero period classes are stuffed. I hope everything works out. So let me know if you've got any classes con mi. Adios!

Mood: contemplative.
Well, here I am again avoiding sleep for reasons I myself do not understand. I'm not sure if it is a good or a bad thing that there is so little space between my last entry and this one. Hopefully, my return to Livejournal doesn't also signal my return to slacking. Heh. Tomorrow is fateful registration, which saddens me to no end. I'm still praying for the miricale of our schedules. I would like to know before the first day of school whether or not I'll have to go through the same complete hell of fixing things as last year. Plus I need to inquire about Spanish 0 period options. Beyond registration, Tomorrow holds several hopeful possibilities. Most of them involve ice cream, and/or something else cool and refreshing. I think I may have to betray my roots and go to lunch at Olive Garden with my mother. Hah! what would my poor italian father say. It is always ironic when we have to hide the leftovers. I have to say, I am almost getting excited about going back to school. mostly because, the more into school I get, the closer I get to college. Ahhh am I stressed out about college right now. I wish that I did not have such ridiculous hopes and dreams. I'm afraid that all of the colleges I apply to will reject me, and I will be left with WWU. I definitely need to make sure my essays don't suck. At this point, I believe there are 7 colleges on my list, with 2 or three of them removable/interchangable. If you care, here's how things play out.

Colleges I would die to go to
Northwestern University - The most versatile college out there, offers anything I could ever want.

Middlebury College - Love the small secluded nature atmosphere, pared with some of the best international and open minded education one could every recieve.

Colleges I am quite interested in
Emerson College - More of an art school feel than I originally planned on, but they do offer Journalism and Marketing Majors, two things I am very interested in. Also, very strong Theatre and music Programs.

University of California at San Diego - A beautiful campus right on the coast, very open thinking, and a great system to make a big place feel small. 5 different colleges with different interest leaning Gen Ed. Requirements, but allowing any major at any of the colleges.

Colleges I would go to if I didn't get in anywhere else. (and be happy don't worry)

University of Florida - My parents alma matter. A HUUUUGE campus of 40,000, even bigger than UW, in a total college town. Offers amazing resources though, from one of the best Journalism Schools in the U.S to one of the most widely offering Arts and Sciences programs of any state program anywhere.

Western Washington University - Too close to home for me, and nothing really special, but a wonderful environment with plenty of impressive offerings. The best fit for me in this area. A good backup school.

There are other possibilities that I haven't fully looked into yet, and/or am just not really sure about. USC I really liked when we were there, but we only looked at the film school and not the entire university. Would like to explore more. University of British Columbia offers a lot of impressive credentials and a very much cheaper but still quality education. I'm not sure about it being in Canada though. and also, I have heard some great things about both St. Johns Baltimore and Santa Fe. In the past religious affiliation has bothered me a little, but if a college strikes me right, then who cares about religion right? As my aunt said when she was looking for medical schools, you'll know when you feel the love. I felt the Love at Northwestern and Middlebury. really felt it. Only the coming months can tell though. I just can't stop thinking about it. Bargh. Okay, I think that this was enough writing for one night. I'm going to go make some tea and attempt sleep again.

I love having fun. Despite Wuthering Heights, a lot of flies, a missing person, a missing boyfriend, and too much sims, I have had a fabulous weekend. I filled it up with Disney movies, Huckleberrys, Hot tea and fresh lemonade, and finally, a reappearing boyfriend. One who almost knows how to ride a unicycle no less. (almost is up for interpretation) Two more weeks of summer. These are the first two weeks all summer (literally) where I haven't been traveling, on vacation, or working. I plan to veg out, watch the Fifth Element 11 times, and finish Wuthering Heights. Right now though, I think I'm going to go take a late night bath, put on the best of Stevie Wonder, and read 40 pages of that book that won't leave me alone.

Love to all.

P.S Sorry about my long absenses. I suck at the upkeep thing.

Last Year's and/or This year's seniors!!!

I would really appreciate it if you would all respond!

I am having trouble deciding where to get my senior pictures taken, and I'm running out of time. If you could all tell me where you had your pictures taken last year or where you are getting them taken this year, and why you liked that paticular place, I would really appreciate it!!! Any suggestion is welcome!

Thanks!

Good morning! I am not particulary cheery on this July 5th, but its okay, because in 5 hours I leave for Florida! I'm excited about it, but as I was getting ready to go to bed, I went to plug my cellphone in and realized I didn't have it. So I start freaking out, and decide to call my number to see if it's in the house somewhere, and some spanish guy answers. Turns out I left it at beaches where we celebrated July Fourth (Which was pretty cool by the way, good view.) Anyway, so I know losing my cellphone shouldn't be that big of a deal but when you're about to go on vacation it's pretty unfortunate. I hope that my 3 hours of sleep will produce a solution to this problem.

So the original point of this entry was going to be for posting pictures of my Awesome Hawaii trip with Hannah, but I realize now that I'm already going to get next to no sleep, so I better just go to bed. I hope you all had fabulous fun times tonight, or yesterday, whenever, And I'll update again when I'm back from my Florida North East college search trip.

Here's a few pictures, I couldn't resist.
2 Graduation night + 1 of HawaiiCollapse )

More Hawaii Pictures and Florida North East Pictures when I get back.

Subject:I'm a terrible Live journal Failure
Time:10:09 pm.
There have been so many times when I have wanted to update but haven't, and I decided I better get around to it before I leave. Because of that, this entry should be extremely long and involved so prepare yourself. The first thing I did before starting this entry was look back at my last entry. Portfolio. Oh boy, a lot of stuff has happened since then.

First of all Spring show. Perilous Journeys. Oh my goodness was that whole process wonderful. Every Day working on that show was so much fun... most days at least, and I had a blast performing it with Spenser and Holly. Dylan was a great director, and I there are so many crazy memories from those three. heh. Picturas!
Spring show picsCollapse )
Then of course Ashland. It was amazing. 2 out of the three plays we saw were wonderful learning experiences, just entertaining really. One sucked, but that doesn't really take any enjoyment out of the trip over all. I spent so much time having fun that it went by before I could even realize what was happening. I feel like the trip led me to become closer to a lot of people, and I just had a blast. Now, here are some pictures from that.
AshlandCollapse )
Next big thing. My one year anniversary with Max was a couple of weeks ago. I can't believe it has already been a year, but I can't remember life before being in love. Max has changed me so much for the better, made me humble, and made me know how to love myself and other people. One year is hard to comprehend, but I can understand that I love that boy more than anything in the world, and there is nothing better than just holding his hand.

I took the SAT's for a second time, and my scores come out tomorrow. I'm not really expecting anything better than the first time, because I didn't finish my essay this time and I skipped quite a few more math sections, but I guess there is always October. bah.

So prom is next. Wow prom. It was so great to hang out with new people and really start to get to know them. Max and I went to dinner at Jessica's house, and it was tons of fun with lots of good food. Then prom itself was just a blast. The music could have been better at times, but as always, watching Cameron, Derek, Max, John, and Eddie boogie down is extremely amusing. After prom was fun also, lots of us went back to Max's and swam in his very warm pool on a very cold night. brrr. now for pictures of that.

PromaliciousCollapse )

And VSAA is coming to an end for a lot of good friends of mine. Seniors, I love you guys very much, and I am so proud that you made it through highschool and are going on to great things. Each and every one of you has touched me and taught me in some way. I cried so... SO hard at the end of focus during check out. I was the first to start, even though I'm not a senior. Man, what is wrong with me!? anyways, so that was amazing. Here are some pictures of seniors, I wish I would have taken more, but I just didn't think about it enough through out the day. EDIT: just kidding, I've got a bazillion pictures without these, so I'll do them another time. Oh well, there are three more days where they'll be around, I've got time.

Yesterday was Great! I went to see Michael Buble in concert, which was AMAZING. No joke. It was one of the best shows I have ever been to. He was very personable, going out in the audience to take pictures with people and joking around the whole time. His whole family was in the audience, which was pretty cool. Anyway, I took some great pictures, because I went up by the stage to dance and got really close. I even have some video of him singing that I took with my digital camera. At the end of the concert, as he was going off stage, he TOTALLY TOUCHED MY HAND!!!! anyways. so that was the highlight of my saturday. I also stopped by Spensers Graduation party. Oh the funny pictures.
I totally Touched his hand!!!!Collapse )

Then today was fathers day. it was a beautiful day outside, so we all sat out on the deck with books and lemonade. It was wonderful. I took my dad to City Dog and Baskin Robbins for Dinner. It was very nice. No pictures of that, but it was still fun. So anyway, yearbooks tomorrow, excitingness. Then on Wednesday, I'm ushering Graduation, and I am going to cry like a baby. yikes. Then thursday at 9 AM Hannah and I are leaving for Hawaii!!! YAYAYAY! I'm sure when I get back I'll have lots of pictures of that as well, but I probably won't update before then, so... until then, seniors and everyone, HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!!!
