The Way Things Are

My fever burns me deeper than I've ever shown


What up Livejournal?! It's been forever. Well, it's been a year at least.

I live in Houston now. I moved in with Chaz this last December. A year of long-distance was 12 months too long. My life is in a stage of reorganization: Attending HCC while I establish residency so that I will be able to get in-state tuition at UH in a year or so, working as a server at The Spaghetti Warehouse (Which is also awesomely haunted), and taking care of our bad-ass old house. Speaking of the house, I absolutely love it. The walls and the ceilings are uneven, there is only one outlet in our bedroom, and there is a tiny window that connects the living room and the kitchen.
Speaking of the boyfriend, I never could have imagined I'd be this happy in a relationship that has lasted so long. I am continuously happy. It's stupid, really and I certainly would hate to annoy everyone with the mushy details.

I need to start writing in this everyday. I need to start writing everyday, period. I don't think I even have any friends left on here to read my journal. How sad :(

(no subject)
Chaz and I are officially Long Distance boyfriend and girlfriend. I could say a lot here, but I just wrote him a long ass email and I am kind of tired now. Regardless, things are great. I just got back from Houston yesterday, and, while I am pretty sick at the moment, I am feeling really happy. I write him emails nearly everyday when we are apart and we talk on the phone pretty constantly. We sufficiently gross out any and all of our friends with our romantic banter. Also, we have retarded amounts of fun together. We seriously barely went out this weekend. We got stoned and watched How I Met Your Mother between spending hours in bed. It was pretty grand.

On the other news front: Finances=devastated, Work=sick and not going, School=hasn't started yet, Roommates=one is awesome and the other is sketchy as fuck.

That's it!

With Miss Li....I have officially dled all of her music...and listened to it. ahh I love it!!

She is amazing...it's like gypsy music, big band, Beatles, Disco, and contemporary indie music. She is just super fab.

One of her songs is called "I'm glad I'm not a proud American." lovely. just lovely.

Things are good.
And that's pretty much the extent of my update.

Got the master bedroom. Love the house. Dogs are good. Work is good. Can't wait for school to start.

Dear Continuing OU Student,

It already seems too quiet on campus since many of you left at the end of the spring semester. I'm already looking forward to your return in the fall.
During the year, I expressed to you our goal of avoiding tuition increases and across the board increases in mandatory fees for continuing students for the next academic year.
The legislative session has now ended. I am happy to report to you that on June 24, I will recommend to our Regents that there be no tuition increases and no increases in mandatory across the board fees for next year. I fully expect that my recommendation will be approved because our Board of Regents has been strong in its support of keeping student costs to the minimum needed to maintain excellence.
In spite of a short fall in revenues, the governor and the state legislature did their best to avoid cuts in education budgets. In addition, OU made approximately $8 million in internal savings through freezes in hiring, in compensation, and other areas. The state leaders and our own faculty and staff who will receive no compensation increases this year, deserve our appreciation. All of us understand that students and families need as much relief as possible during this time of national economic crisis.
While we are holding down costs, we are committed to maintaining the university's high standard of excellence.
This has been an outstanding year at the university. Out student body is the highest ranked academically in state history at a public university. We saw OU students again win the Truman and Goldwater Scholarships. Our debate team won the national championship again this year making this our second national crown in three years. We strengthened our number one position among public universities in National Merit Scholars enrolled per capita. Our petroleum engineering team won the national championship competition and our entrepreneurship program was ranked in the top ten nationally. In addition, OU was ranked one of the nation's top 10 "Most Wired" colleges.
Finally, we excelled in many areas of athletics. For the first time in U.S. history, one university - OU - had the top football player in the nation, the top men's and women's basketball players nationally, and a male gymnast who won Olympic medals.
A memorable commencement address by Pulitzer Prize winning historian David McCullough, an enormous fireworks display, music by the Highland Bagpipes, the OU Herald Trumpets, and a salute to our flag by the Kiowa Black Legging Society ended a remarkable year.
I am glad to be able to give you this good news about tuition and fees. I am grateful that you are part of the OU Family. I wish you a happy and safe summer.

I like this...and I seem to have these a lot.
A Joycean epiphany is a small descriptive moment, action, or phrase that holds much larger meaning–for example, a single word or gesture that explains a person’s entire personality.


Waiting now for the Triple A tow truck to get to my house to tow my car to the SAAB dealership so they can charge me a lot of money to fix my transmission.

Then it is off to my ethics class and then to work.

In the search for monetary satisfaction I am lacking a lot of plasma. Why couldn't one of my parents have been disgustingly wealthy?

Busy as all get out. But it's good. It's good because, although becoming fairly nocturnal, I am still motivated. I have two important grades I am about to find out and am dreading both of them. Both teachers are difficult graders, but I did my best.

I have been really happy lately. I am restless though. The future that I see keeps blurring and is now unfocused. I have less of an idea of where I want to be in 5 years than when I moved here. Maybe I am trying to too utilitarian.

Still praying to win the lottery or for money to become obsolete. *fingers crossed*

Thank god this semester is almost over! Hoohah!
