Hello darlings!

On the lack of updating...I'm sorry. I an in need of a new hard drive for my computer, and that's something that costs three hundred dollars or more. It may make more sense to buy a whole new laptop. All that to say this-I don't have the money. I've been using the public libraries computers now and then to grab quick updates but with my work schedule I don't have much time on my hands.

I've been working at Wal-Mart. It's not ideal but Vail isn't the best place to find a great job after graduating college, but it's a job and I'm thankful to be working right now when the economy is the way it is. (Thank you for that, Bush administration.) I'm living at home right now due to my financial situation. I pay the maximum each month for my student loan bills, but I can't get them to lower how much I pay each month without hurting me in the long run, and I don't want to pay higher intrest rates in the end, and rent is SO HIGH here right now. Sometimes it can be really awful, other times great.

Work's been really onerous but this week I managed to get four days off in a row, which I really need to revitalize my spirits. I've been in kind of a funk recently and I am getting really irritated over a lot of things, things that never would bug me normally. Tomorrow I am going to the Avalanche vs the Maple Leaves game at the Pepsi Center in Denver (to those of you sports challenged, that is hockey). My parents got me the tickets for Christmas because we all love the Avs. Anyone who is going to be in downtown Denver tomorrow night give me a call.

I really miss talking to everyone- I don't spend much time on the phone. With any luck I can get my computer situation sorted out. Everyone leave me a comment telling me how you are and what you've been up to. :)

This week is my last week of classes (ever!) before finals week. I can't believe how fast the semester has gone. Unlike last semester, I didn't feel so overwhelmed by school work that I wanted to tear my hair out or play in traffic. I only had to read 21 novels instead of 25 (like last semester) and 16 of those were for my young adult lit class so most of them were really easy reads, and half of them I had to read for book cards that we did so we got to choose our own books. For those, I did Peter Pan, Number the Stars, Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul one (and I only wrote about one poem in it so I didn't read the whole thing, I mean, I have read it before though) one of the Dear America series books, and Eragon.

In my novel count for the semester I did not include anthologies that we had to buy because we have only had to read essays and poems and short stories out of those, and I didn't include the textbook for my psychology class that we are reading. Nothing is duller than having to read an entire textbook and being tested over JUST that in a class.

I have a paper due on Friday in my American lit class and a take home final due on Friday in my young adult lit class (we don't have sit down finals in either of those classes) and I had a final paper due in my young adult lit class (dudes that class has had SO much work) but I got an A on it so I am not worried.

It is my British romanticism class that I am worried about. It is the class I am putting the most effort into and getting the worst grade in. Isn't that always the way?

I hate my neighbor. HATE HATE HAAATE.

Finals schedule for next week:

Monday:
British Romanticism @ 8:00
Young adult lit @ 10:00
American lit @ 1:00

Tuesday:
None! Time to Study

Wednesday:
Social Psychology @ 1:00

Thursday:
Computers in our society @ 8:00

Those times aren't necessarily all indicitive of the times when the classes normally are during the week. British romanticism, young adult lit, and psychology all have their finals at the same time the classes usually are, but the others don't. I really hate how they make as many morning finals as they can be at 8 oclock in the morning. Last semester I have three finals at 8, but only one class that was actually held at 8 normally. Luckily for me, those three finals I only had to drop off papers or pick them up.

Graduation is on the 19th, 2 days after my last final. I leave for Italy the day after, on the 20th. That week is going to be so busy, with finals, packing up my dorm, and packing for Italy, graduation rehersals, the actual graduation, whatever get together I might have with family and friends attending graduation, and getting to the airport on time for the flight the next morning. I am staying at my grandparents' house the night before because it is so much closer than here or home.

I can't believe I am graduating already. Please no one bring me down from my euphoria by asking me what I want to do afterwards, I am sick of hearing that question and I don't really know. I have been thinking about devoting the month of June to going to a wedding, trying to get to Minnesota for a week to join in my parent's vacation to my stepdad's family lake house, maybe applying for grad schools (?) and scholarships if I decide to, and looking for a job for a while in Vail so I can stay at home and accumulate some savings.

Speaking of friends getting married in the near future, I think my count of them is now up to eight.

OK, people. comment, I did not write a huge long entry for it to be ignored!

How do I ban someone from my LJ? I got added by a troll a while back and I am tired of having them on my "friends of" list.

Wow...  This made me cry.

My heart and prayers go out to all the families of the September 11 victims. 

I can't believe it has been five years already.

Spread the word [31 Aug 2005|07:34pm]
IT HAS BEEN CALCULATED THAT IF EVERYONE IN THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA DID NOT PURCHASE A DROP OF GASOLINE FOR ONE DAY AND ALL AT THE SAME TIME, THE OIL COMPANIES WOULD CHOKE ON THEIR STOCKPILES.

AT THE SAME TIME IT WOULD HIT THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY WITH A NET LOSS OF OVER 4.6 BILLION DOLLARS WHICH AFFECTS THE BOTTOM LINES OF THE OIL COMPANIES.

THEREFORE SEPTEMBER 1st HAS BEEN FORMALLY DECLARED "STICK IT UP THEIR BEHIND " DAY AND THE PEOPLE OF THESE TWO NATIONS SHOULD NOT BUY A SINGLE DROP OF GASOLINE THAT DAY.

THE ONLY WAY THIS CAN BE DONE IS IF YOU FORWARD THIS E-MAIL TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN AND AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN TO GET THE WORD OUT.

WAITING ON THE GOVERNMENT TO STEP IN AND CONTROL THE PRICES IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE REDUCTION AND CONTROL IN PRICES THAT THE ARAB NATIONS PROMISED TWO WEEKS AGO?

REMEMBER ONE THING, NOT ONLY IS THE PRICE OF GASOLINE GOING UP BUT AT THE SAME TIME AIRLINES ARE FORCED TO RAISE THEIR PRICES, TRUCKING COMPANIES ARE FORCED TO RAISE THEIR PRICES WHICH EFFECTS PRICES ON EVERYTHING THAT IS SHIPPED. THINGS LIKE FOOD, CLOTHING, BUILDING MATERIALS, MEDICAL SUPPLIES ETC. WHO PAYS IN THE END?

WE DO!

WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. IF THEY DON'T GET THE MESSAGE AFTER ONE DAY, WE WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN.

SO DO YOUR PART AND SPREAD THE WORD. FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW. MARK YOUR CALENDARS AND MAKE SEPTEMBER 1st A DAY THAT THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA SAY "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH"

We need to pray [30 Aug 2005|11:41pm]
This is so sad about New Orleans, and I haven't even been watching the news!! We really need to pray for them. According to someone who lives near there, 80 percent of the city was underwater at some point, and there are refugees everywhere.

I don't know, we should set up a fund or something, like people did with the tsumani relief.

Pray for London! [07 Jul 2005|03:00pm]
[Mood:| Worried]

Everyone plese be keeping London in their prayers. For anyone on my Flist (or not, for that matter) I'll be praying for you.

This makes me so sad. It reminds me of the September 11th attacks. I really hope America will rally for England like they did for us. Has it really been nearly five years?!

*hugs to all in England* We love you!

spikesbint, you don't live in london, do you?!

Thank you to brokenicons_ for the lovely banner!

Hey. I'm Alicia, I will be 22 in August, and I will be a senior in college. I am majoring in English Literature. My life would be very, very good if I could concentrate in British Literaure and not have to bother with so much American literature...but since we live in America, oh well.

Music: Anything but rap, hip hop, and pop. I wouldn't say I despise it, but it's not my favorite. I like Classic Rock, some country, some Christian, some Punk... just a lot of everything. Some specific: DC talk, POD, Switchfoot, Newsboys, Steven Curtis Chapman, AC/DC, The Clash, Pearl Jam, R.E.M., The Eagles, Alien Ant Farm, Alan Jackson, Rent, The Beatles, Black-Eyed Peas, Blink 182, Collective Soul, Creed, Green Day, Third Eye Blind, Smash Mouth, Relient K, The Offspring, Nirvana, Lifehouse, Alanis Morissette

TV: Don't watch TV much at schoo, but I love Law and Order: SVU, Crossing Jordan, and Gilmore Girls. I still watch Full House and Boy Meets World when I can. I loved 7th Heaven before it got lame.

Movies: Lots. Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Carribean, X-Men, Harry Potter, Left Behind, any stupid comedies (anything with Will Ferrel or Vince Vaugh) Phantom of the Opera, Mean Girls, Monty Python, Dodgeball, Remember the Titans, Harry Potter, Miracle, Ocean's 11, Spider Man 1 and 2, Shrek 1 and 2, Big Fish, Spaceballs, Zoolander, Animal House, The Matrix, Love Actually, Disney movies, The Passion, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Dumb and Dumber, Old School, Blues Brothers, Wedding Crashers

Books: It would take forever to type all these out. The Bible, Left Behind, Harry Potter, Phillipa Gregory books...

Don't have a thing in common with me? Add me anyway...I love meeting new people and being introduced to new things.

These aren't rules. They are more like guidelines.

1. If you do friends cuts all the time, please consider that I have a ton going on in my life and can't keep track of that ALL THE TIME.
2. If you add me, and then cut me, DON'T yell at me for not removing you from my list. I don't have time to bother with people who do that.
3. I swear at times in my journal, but it's not over the top. I don't tend to swear in other people's journals, unless you already do.

< lj user = "brokenagain"> made my banner. Thanks!

[Mood:| Okay]

I led Bible Study tonight. I talked about James 1, about endurance. I thought it would be good since next week is finals and everything.

I spent most of tonight finishing up my french project. wOOt, it's done!

Can everyone please pray that people are quiet so I can sleep tonight?

My brain's a mess... [04 May 2005|07:46pm]
[Mood:| Excited]
[Mood:| Tired]
[Mood:| Sick]

I know I have 3 moods up right now, but I have all 3 because I, well, feel all 3. (another one for the obvious statement book)

I feel like crap. I don't sleep much anymore.

Why don't people comment anymore? That makes me !

I got the Phantom DVD though! Yay me.

This week has been thankfully not as stressful as next week will be, but it's no walk in the park.

Next week =

I don't know when I am going to have time to pack.

I have one thing to say about finals. AAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHH!

My comeputer is overloaded with information and papers.

. I'll get through it. I have to get through it. I can't get C's on any test. I just don't like C's. With God's help, I can do it. Now all I need to do is convince myself.

This one's for fun. I really need to watch Star Wars before Episode III comes out.
