First post in quite a while, I suppose. I guess you shouldn't be expecting too many from me these days, I just haven't been on the computer at all.
However, I just have to put it out there. With all this craziness with the national bailout and the upcoming election, which, in my eyes, could go either way, I'm shitting my pants in fear.
One month from today will be the most important day in any recent political history as it concerns me. And until then, nothing else really seems to matter all that much.

Hour-long phone conversations with long-unseen Goucher buds makes me really psyched to go back to school.

It's so weird to think I've only got a week and a half left of work. I've been slaving there everyday, more than ever the past few weeks, that I think I might actually miss it there. This is the first time I've actually been getting along really well with my coworkers and have been enjoying my job (with the exception of my sometimes-psycho boss).
Next semester is still crazy up-in-the-air as I'm uncertain whether I'll have an internship and how many hours I'll be working in the good-ole' CTLT but I'm getting totally pumped for my classes, and of course, seeing the whole crew together again.
It's so weird to think two weeks from tomorrow I'll be driving south! Eep! =O

When watching Sanford and Son late at night, I get really confused and start thinking my phone is ringing.

I saw this film, as well as a short film about German scientist Fritz Haber, last night at the RI Film Festival and was absolutely blown away. There was only an audience of about 20 people there, so I was really surprised to see that the directors of both films were in attendance. There was a short Q+A and afterwards my mom pushed me to talk to each of the directors. They were both extremely nice and gave me a bit of advice, but the most amazing part was when Rick Larkin gave me his business card and told me if I ever needed any help, to just get in touch with him.
Also, Satellites & Meteorities was absolutely fantastic and when it comes out onto DVD next year, or whenever, I'm totally getting my hands on a copy of it. =)
In other news, I've finally got a plan in mind for my short-film project for next semester. Now I'm starting to write an outline and first draft so that by October maybe I can start casting and filming. How exciting!!

Cleaning my room all day. Discovered a huge stash of notes written to me in high school by former best friend and douchebag exboyfriend. No wonder I was a terrible student. I spent all my time making origami-shaped notes to friends. I'm better off.

Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun. Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a view of their desktops as well.

So I'm home from London. I was really sad at first, and it was total shock to be driving back through my hometown...
But I'm so glad to be home. I loved London, I really did, but there's something London didn't have that can never, ever be replaced. That's my friends. I knew I missed them, but I don't think it truly hit me how much I missed them until they just appeared at my house. The fact that I have friends so dear to me, that they're ready to plan a surprise-hide-out in my closet and under my bed, waiting for hours until I get home, proves to me how amazing I've got it here in Warwick.
Since I've graduated, I've lost contact with a lot of close friends from high school. But I know for sure that Mary, Chris, and Andy are those friends that I will never lose touch with. I've been through ruts with all of them, and we always help each other out. I am seriously so lucky to have these guys in my life. I can't even express that. My post-high-school life I've always said I could never move back to Rhode Island because there's nothing to do here. But I honestly think that if I had to, I'd be fine with it, because I know these guys are here for me. And even if I live halfway across the world someday, I know that these are the sorts of friends I can still count on despite the distance.
Yesterday I job hunted for a while, unsuccessfully, so I'm a little stressed about that, especially with the lack of internship. =\
In the middle of the day, Mary, Chris, and I went to see the Sex and the City movie. It was more amusing than anything the conversations we had afterwards about which of us would be which character, and how that show really IS us in 20 years (despite the fact that Chris is, in fact, not a woman).
Then at night, I went out with my brother (well, more like dragged him to go shopping for toiletries with me in promises that we'd get ice cream afterwards). That was awesome as well. I'm totally excited for the fact that my brother and I are really so close. I know most siblings aren't usually good friends, but I think it's pretty badass that Jeff and I are.
All in all, I'm having a pretty damn good start to my summer break. =)

|12:37 am - Just in case you didn't know...|
Chris, Mary, Andy, and my bro are the coolest peeps ever. Nothing beats coming home from abroad to your friends popping out of your closet and from under your bed and planning surprise shenanigans on you.
I <3 you guys.

SAD THING: I missed the Gaspee Arts + Crafts Festival for the first time in...15 years, maybe?
HAPPY THING: The same weekend, I went to arts + crafts festivals in Berlin, Germany and Athens, Greece.
I think it evens itself out. =)
More on that later. Eventually. After I update about Ireland. Or England. Or something. I'm so bad at this.
