*spoiler alert* I just watched the Fringe finale and ohhhh man. I really liked it for a while. They found Peter and at first he didn't want to come back to the normal universe. But Olivia finally told him how she felt and they kissed (HOLY JESUS FINALLY) and he decided to come back. Everything was PERFECT. Until at the very end, it turns out that alternate Olivia is the one that came back to the other side. OUR Olivia is stuck in the alternate universe with evil Walter. AAAARRRRRGHHHHH. I could scream right now. I mean Peter and Olivia FINALLY get together and it's not even the right Olivia! So now they are going to have to go back to rescue her, but who knows when they will find out that it's her. I don't even know when they switched. Actually I think it happened when the bomb went off. Which means at LEAST the real Olivia did tell Peter how she felt. It wasn't the fake one doing that. But seriously I'm so angry. The fake Olivia is going to ruin everything. But Peter loves Olivia and he should be able to tell it's not her. Seriously. God damn finales. I hate them. Ok sorry, I just had to rant, or else I wouldn't be able to sleep tonight.

This weekend... well it had good and bad aspects to it. I started in Ellensburg on Friday. I always have fun in Ellensburg :) here's my favorite picture of the night. That's Scott and Adam, who are 2 of Alan's roommates. We were playing Jenga, and Jenga told us to trade clothing. So I had to trade shirts with Scott and then Scott had to trade clothes with Adam. All-in-all, without going into too much detail, I loved it.
Then Alan and I headed to Pullman to visit Nicole since she turned 21 on Sunday. Pullman was... not as fun as anticipated. It was really nice to see Nicole, but in general I didn't really enjoy myself. I'll have more fun spending time with Nicole this weekend when we go to Sunlakes. Pullman is also a ridiculous drive. It wasn't too bad because I did it in waves, but still it was REALLY hard for me to get back in the car after dropping Alan off at Central, for multiple reasons. I think it's funny that freshman year everyone at Western was trying to convince Alan to transfer to Western, and now all the Central people are trying to convince me to transfer to Central haha. Not gonna happen though. I love them, but I'll be a senior next year, and who knows how many credits will transfer. But I do sometimes wish I could just hang out with them for way longer than a weekend.
Kara's birthday was Sunday as well. So I stopped and took a break in Renton also to wish her a happy birthday. We went to dinner with my parents and then to Coldstone. Mmmmm it was yummy. Now there are only 3 weeks of class left. Can you believe it? I've got a lot of work to do, but this weekend is sunlakes, then dead week, then finals, then my birthday party, then Hawaii, then my ACTUAL 21st birthday. Oh so much fun! I'm having such a hard time focusing on classes.

I had a lovely day today. I worked on our Physiology experiment for most of the day. We got all of the 30 participants we wanted, and got pretty good results too! I haven't quite figured out how I want to graph the results yet, but I at least have all the data put into excel. Then after that Dominic came over and we played Jenga for a while, which was fun. Then I went over to his place and he made me food and we watched Legion. I quite enjoy his company, so it was a fun night :) We didn't finish Legion, but it seems pretty good. There were a couple kind of ridiculous things, but I think I'll enjoy it. I'll let you know when I finish it on Sunday.
Then tomorrow I'm heading to Ellensburg. I'm staying the night there and hanging out with the Central boys, whom I love oh so much. Then Alan and I are going to Pullman on Saturday for Nicole's birthday. There will be a lot of driving but it should be pretty fun. I love the Central boys and I promised Nicole I would come visit her for her birthday. I'm hoping she's got some cute guy-friends, because apparently she's told them I'm a "stone cold fox" and they are all excited to meet me. So hopefully there will be a couple cute enough to flirt with haha.
In other news: there are only 39 days until I turn 21! I am so excited. And there are only 3 weeks left of school. I'm kinda freaking out. I didn't do so hot on the last chemistry test so I have to do better on this next one. We have our essay for Olympism, and our paper for Physiology, and the poster for Physiology. Plus finals. But somehow, I'm not as nervous as I should be. Spring sucks the motivation right out of you.
I have a feeling that I'm going to have a hard time getting to sleep tonight. I'm not excited. It doesn't really make sense, I was SOOOO tired this morning. And I didn't take a nap. And I didn't have caffeine. I really need to start getting sleeping pills. Otherwise I will never get sleep. I think I might change my blog layout. I don't like the fact that the videos below this post don't quite fit. Although I don't know if a new layout will help that. I'll just have to make a lot more posts so that you can't see the videos at the very top of the page.

It's another sleepless night. I should really start taking sleeping pills or something. Tonight particularly sucks because I have a chem test tomorrow. Ugh. I'm waking myself up at 5 to study more because I found myself unable to study any longer tonight. That gives me about 3 hours and 45 minutes to sleep if I fall asleep right now. Which isn't happening.
So instead I'm surfing the web. Tonight's exploration brings me to gublerland. I've been there before, but I'd forgotten about it until tonight. It's a website run by Matthew Gray Gubler. That in itself is a reason to visit the page, but besides being created by Mr. Gubler, it is also very creative. He does everything by hand. Artwork, blog entries, web layout etc. His artwork is not conventional, but it's very good. It's unique and each piece is interesting to look at. I'd suggest you check it out at www.matthewgraygubler.com
There is also a contact button on the website for sending emails. I'm debating right now about sending him an email. He is one of my most favorite celebrities :) I seriously think that all I did over winter break this year was watch Criminal Minds. He seems very down to earth, like I think I might actually get a response from him. I don't what to say though, at least without sounding really dumb. My dad is in a band with this guy named Craig Maclaughlin (don't worry this isn't completely off-topic) and Craig just so happens to have a brother named Kyle Maclaughlin. Kyle is a star on Desperate Housewives. So I told my dad that he should talk to Kyle and get him to introduce me to Matthew Gray Gubler haha because of course ALL famous people know each other ;) Then Grace said she wanted to be hooked up with Shemar Moore (also from Criminal Minds). I think I will send him an email. Maybe we'll have a magical bond, you never know :)

It's been a while since I've done a diary style-post. So I've decided that it is once again time to clear my head of all the things that clutter it up. Let's start with this weekend.
Friday I hung out with Meagan, Chris, Dominic and Michail. That was interesting.... and I think that's the best way to describe it haha. I love those boys though, they have become the ones that we (or at least I) hang out with the most often. It works well. Saturday I had a t-ball game and Gracie and Casey came up to visit! T-ball was fun, there was one obnoxious parent who like, tried to referee or something. It was weird. Our team name is the Orange Tigers and we're pretty awesome. This one kid, Isaac, is so good! Then we went to Creativitea and painted pottery and had lunch. Then we had a dessert extravaganza since Grace missed her Senior Ball. I probably gained about 20 pounds. Tonight we had animal ball and it was fun, except I now have a black eye. Meagan accidentally hit my eye with her finger while trying to score. Now I have a fatty bruise on my eye. I'm totally telling people that Ben beat me up and is running away to Atlanta to escape the police.
This week I have lots of work to do. I have a Chem test on Tuesday which I have to study for. Then I have a paper for Olympism that I have to finish writing, and we have to have a poster draft done for Physiology by Thursday. OHHHH and I need to schedule a meeting with Casey to request funding for animal ball! I keep forgetting but we are running out of weeks and we definitely don't have money to pay for it. And I need to pick up the check from last quarter to give to Audrey Andersen. Can't forget either of those things.
Hmmm what else is there? Oh the boy I mentioned in one of my previous posts doesn't like me. It's been confirmed. I was sad/kind of am sad, but it wasn't really unexpected. And I'll probably be better off anyway. Or at least that's what I'm telling myself.

It's Mariner Monday again, but unfortunately I have don't have much good news. The Mariners got into an AWFUL slump and lost 8 games in a row. I watched a couple innings of the game on Friday, and I had to turn it off because it was so painful. Now I KNOW that Felix is a good pitcher, but he sucked ASS on Friday. He gave up 3 homeruns in one inning. And 2 of them were back to back pitches! Plus walking multiple batters. We were behind 8-0 in the fourth. It was so bad. It might have been a little better if the Mariner's could freaking pick up their bats. But none of them hit unless they're all hitting. Excluding Ichiro and Gutierrez.
They did however win the game yesterday against Los Angeles, thank God. They're now going into the Baltimore series and we swept Baltimore last time so let's hope they get their winning streak back.
In the game on Saturday they left 12 men on base (really guys?). But apparently were improving anyways, taking the game into 10 innings.
Batting averages are dropping to horrific levels. Figgins is batting .192, Kotchman is batting .194, Lopez is at .215 and Rob Johnson is at .130. Our pitchers are the only things keeping us alive at this point. Despite Felix's awful game, he's still a great pitcher, along with Doug Fister and Cliff Lee. I'm hoping the Mariners are working on their bats because if we can actually score some runs, we could be pretty damn good.

It was Mother's Day this weekend! I went home to see my family and that was nice :) It was a long weekend though, or rather short I suppose. I hung out with Dominic on Friday. Saturday I had a t-ball game at 1 and then I drove to Renton. I went to Kara's play, which was FABULOUS. I loved seeing Kara rap. Mom has a video that I'll put up later. It was so cool. Then we did Mother's Day stuff on Sunday and I got to see Grandma and Grandpa and Aunt Julie, but I had to leave at 1 to be at work at 4. It was lame, so I did a lot of driving this weekend. Animal Ball was SUPPOSED to happen but everyone bailed. It put me in quite a bad mood, I mean everyone says they want to do this club and everyone says they have fun, but then I have to harass people to go! I'm tired of it! Not even Ben called me back! So Dominic came over instead and we finished watching the Phantom of the Opera. Him and Meagan cheered me up, but only for a bit. I also found out that aforementioned boy does like me. Big surprise there. It's fine, I'll be ok. But I just... you know I can't help but wonder why? I think the last 8 boys in a row that I've been interested in weren't interested in me. I just have crappy luck :( I'm done with boys. Really this time. I'm tired of getting hurt. It's not gonna happen again.

I wish the world was a little more black and white
I wish things were easier
I wish I didn't have 2 tests tomorrow
I wish I would get in to PT school
I wish I could read minds
I wish airplanes in the night sky were shooting stars (ha)
I wish I didn't overanalyze everything
I wish boys weren't stupid
I wish I could stay up longer
I wish to do well on my exams
I wish for things to go right for once
I wish, I wish, I wish.
<-- That is me. Well ok not really. But pretty close. It is 1:30 in the morning and I am attempting to pull an all nighter despite all advice against it. But see the thing is, I have a Physiology AND an Olympism test tomorrow. And I don't feel nearly prepared enough for either of them. I'm applying to PT school in the fall and I need a 3.0 gpa to get in to most schools. I doubt that I'll get higher than a C in my Chemistry class so it's up to Physiology and Olympism to bring my grades up. Physiology is essentially the evil twin to Anatomy, which I only just BARELY scraped a C in. I'm determined to get good grades. Or at least not assassinate my gpa. And thus comes my first all nighter. I've had 4 cups of tea, and I might start on 5 soon. I still have to write 2 more mini essays for Physiology and then review for Olympism. Then I can sleep in this weekend. It will be Friday. Michail might come hang out with me. I have t-ball on Saturday, and then I get to go home and see my family. Sunday we have animal ball. All good things. I just have to make it through the next 12 hours. So wish me luck, I'll need it more than you can possibly imagine.

I'm feeling kind of pessimistic tonight. Maybe it's just because I'm tired and I've had a long day, but I'm just in an awful mood. I was busy ALL day today. I had class from 10-5. My Chem lab actually ran until 5 today, which means that I had to leave straight from class to home and straight from home to work. Work was alright, but I didn't get to chat with Dominic today because Riki was doing evaluations. Then I went over to Erin's and we studied Physiology forever. I am so scared. I think we learned a lot, but there is still so much more. And we have an Olympism test too. I have basically 30 pages of notes on my computer for this Physiology test. 30! On my COMPUTER. Not written notes. Typed, small font notes. I am so screwed.
Also on my mind today is this boy. I'm trying to keep my feet on the ground, but it's almost impossible for me not to get my hopes up. When will I ever learn to just keep my freaking emotions to myself until they are wanted? I mean, I guess I still don't know if things will work out this time. But they never do, and I sometimes get the feeling he's not interested. And I'm usually right. Woman's intuition, if you wanna call it that. But really, I just want to know. So I can move on. I promised myself that I wasn't going to spend any unnecessary time on boys. This is now getting in to unnecessary time.
Good news though. I have my first t-ball game this weekend. I get to go home this weekend. We have animal ball again on Sunday. And next Wednesday I get to go see Paramore with Grace and Meagan :) Let's focus on those things shall we?

I'm an optimist. A dreamer. And when I dream, it's hard to keep my feet on the ground. I've learned the hard way that dreaming with your head in the clouds is a good way to get hurt. But yet time after time, I find myself crashing to earth.
Just because someone says that two people are meant to be together, doesn't mean that they are. Just because everyone says that two people are meant to be together, doesn't mean that both people agree. It's deceiving. It's what you want to hear. It justifies your feelings. But it's not what you need. It's not who you need to hear it from.
This is my attempt to stay grounded. I'm not sure it's working.

I know I missed last Monday. But here it is, this weeks Mariner Monday! The Mariners are still doing pretty well I feel. They had a rough time with the Rangers and the Chicago White Sox. But they annihilated Baltimore and Kansas City. We have Cliff Lee back, and boy do I like him. Even though we lost against Texas, Cliff Lee did AMAZING. No runs scored while he was pitching and I think he pitched 6 innings. That was Friday when they went into extra innings, but ultimately lost. Which killed me. Ichiro tried to steal home, which almost won us the game, except the catcher recovered too quickly. Also, although I haven't watched either of them pitch, our other two pitchers are doing spectacularly as well. Doug Fister and Felix Hernandez. This is quite a change, since our pitchers usually suck. So now we've got 3 fantastic ones and the Mariners can't pick up their bats. Hope they're working on that. Because if they can start hitting they'll be great. Right now though, none of them can hit until the whole team is on a roll. Franklin Gutierrez though seems to be keeping his bat up. That's why he's my favorite :)
