back to the start

where has the time gone?

This is going to be long and kind of all over the place. I apologize in advance..

The last time I updated my Live Journal was in September of 2009 and I was 20 years old. To say a lot has changed in 4 and a half years would be a major understatement.

So, one of the last things I mentioned was that I had started dating Adrian, a friend of my sisters from YT. Adrian and I continued dating long distance and eventually he moved in with my family and I, then I briefly moved to California with him, we dated long distance AGAIN, and then he moved back to VA with me.

I worked for the daycare that I mentioned forever ago, first as a receptionist and then after moving back from CA I worked as their cook. My younger sister moved to California in 2010 or 2011, I can't really remember anymore. After Adrian moved back to VA we both went to work at Target with colorsblend. I worked as a cake decorator and I fell in love with it. My dream would be to own my own cupcake shop or small bakery. Around the beginning of 2013 my parents and my little brother moved to South Carolina. It's what they needed and they're very happy there. Nicole, Adrian, and I stayed in VA and we rented an apartment together. We lived there for a year and it was really wonderful. We had so much fun living together and we all became really close. We also made some amazing friends that year. On March 7th, 2012 Adrian asked me to marry him while we were visiting Disneyland. I said yes.

When our lease was up in May 2013 we made the difficult decision to leave VA. Nicole to go live with her boyfriend, and Adrian's best friend, in Northern California and Adrian and I to live with his parents in Southern California. We're now trying to pay off some debt and save some money so we can get married.

I've grown up and changed so much since I last used this journal. Seriously, though, how often did I need to update that I changed my layout?! I'm going to try and use this space again, mainly to write about fandom. I've been writing in my blog, Skip to the End, since moving to California so if you're interested in what I've been up to lately you can head over there.

every dream too good to come true

Wow. It's been a very long time since I've written here and so much has changed in my life. I was actually going to just completely abandon my journal, I'd still check my flist but just not update, but someone told me I shouldn't so here I am.

I have so much to write about, but for now I'll just tell you about my amazing Summer.

Going to Marquette was a really good thing for me and my siblings because now we have a good relationship with our grandparents. Which, some of you may know/remember, we haven't had for a while. It was a very long 10 days, but I enjoyed it and I'm glad I went.

A few days after we got back Kendall's friend Adrian came and stayed with us for a week. Then her boyfriend, her other friend, his girlfriend, and her brother also came to stay with us. She knows them all from You Tube. We all took a bus to New York for the 789 YouTube gathering. We were there for 4 days and it was a lot of fun.

The biggest change in my life happened while I was in New York. Even before Adrian came to stay with us I had sort of a crush on him, but I never thought anything would happen between us. I definitely didn't think he liked me in that way at all. But once we got to New York things changed and we got a lot closer. Needless to say, he is now my boyfriend. He makes me happier than anyone ever has and I am so glad I have him in my life. The only downside is that he lives all the way on the other side of the Country. Which sucks. Hard. Almost immediately after we got back to my house we made plans for me to fly out and visit him a month later.

After all of that I was pretty busy. I went to a family reunion, on a family vacation, and then to South Carolina to visit my grandparents.

Then! Me, my mom, and Kendall went to California for two weeks. I stayed with Adrian, Kendall with her boyfriend, and my mom with relatives. I'm not going to get into too much detail about what we did etc. , because this is already getting way too long, but I will say that those were the best two weeks of my life. I would give anything to go back, but sadly I can't for reasons I will get into later.

Okay, now I'm going to go download all the shows I missed tonight and change my LJ layout. =D

they're not my home, not anymore

In about an hour I leave for the airport. Me, my younger sister, and our brother are going to Michigan for 10 days. I'll have the internet, but I probably won't be on it much. I'm pretty nervous because I haven't been on a plane in a few years. It isn't the flying that has me nervous, though, It's all the airport stuff. Since It's just me and my siblings we have to deal with all the security, etc, alone and I've never done that before. I've always had my parents or some other adult with me to handle all of that. Plus I know that there's a lot more security than there was the last time I flew somewhere. Also, we have to change flights! I know I'm probably making a bigger deal out of it in my head than it actually it, because that's what I tend to do, but I'm still nervous. Anyways, better go check that I have everything! I know I'm going to forget something..

Oh, also! I saw Spring Awakening with my sisters last Wednesday and I loooved it! I'm obsessed. :p

hold tight, sing and shout

I just bought this laptop. It'll be here by next Friday. Which means that this time next week I'll be playing Sims 3!! I'm so excited.

On June 15th me, my brother, and my sister are flying to Michigan to stay with our grandparents at a house they have there. I'm really excited. Mostly because we get to go on a plane!! I love flying on planes, but I have not been on one in many years.

I wanted to write more, but I haven't had any caffeine in 2 days and I am exhausted. I also completely forgot what I wanted to say. Goodnight!

slower, slower, we don't have time for that

Since school ended I have been incredibly bored. However, I am still very glad not to be in school anymore.

All I've done recently is watched tv shows, movies, and read books. I've been reading books by Francesca Lia Block because they're all pretty short and light (not as in weight. lol.). That's what I'm in the mood for right now. I can't bring myself to start any longer books.

I've been watching Chuck! I finished the first season in 2 days and now I'm on episode 6 of the second season.

I need book/movie/tv recommendations, please! Especially books. =D

edit: Also, if anyone wants to rec me some music that would be great too! :P

i was just busy watching everyone go by

Yay! I just saw my final grades. In Baking and Culinary 2 I got A's and in Diet and Nutrition and Sanitation and Safety I got B's. I am so freaking relieved. I was sure I was going to get a C or worse in D&N.

I have nothing else to say, really. I was just really excited about this and had to post it. ;p

do fish take baths a lot?

I don't really have much to talk about, but I felt like I should update. ;p

This weekend I'm going to a wedding. I've never been to a wedding, so I'm pretty excited. It's four hours away. ROAD TRIP! I really hope there is internet at the hotel...

Yesterday I skipped school and went shopping for a new dress to wear to the wedding. I was going to post a picture of it, but I couldn't find it on the website.

Speaking of school, I only have a little over two weeks left! I can't wait for it to be over. Although, a week after my current classes end I start my Summer class. But that's okay because it's online and I'll still have time to do loads of fun things this Summer. So far I have a trip to North Carolina and a trip to New York planned. My whole family is going to stay at a beach house in N.C., hopefully the same one as last year, for two weeks. In July I am possibly going to NYC with my sister and some of her friends. If everything works out it will be a really awesome trip.

Um, that's really it. I plan on updating a lot more once school ends. I read my flist everyday, but I still suck at updating and commenting. I'm trying to get better! =D

Because I can:

add me?
