I had a really rough night. Between ignorant comments, broken promises, and feeling like I lost my mojo, and then feeling bad and guilty that just because that happened I feel like I lost my mojo...I'm just having a very rough time. Add to that the Sly stuff, the parental stuff, and the frustration with AC.

Plus, now I'm sick. Today was not a good day to plan to start my membership at Legends.

In good news, I left yahoo messenger on last night and was greeted this morning by an array of "hey u wan 2 talk?" Wait... I said good news. Okay, well, there is none of that.

When did I become so emo and sullen?

I just signed on to an old screen name (glitterbug1984) in hopes of finding my old friend Thomas's screen name.. and I'm astounded how my friends have changed. Certainly some have stayed the same... but then there's people on there I didn't even think to put on this list.... Brad, Logan, Lauren, Mara, Lindsay, Adam, Malka, Aman... and other random Godby, camp, even UF friends. Rob was on there too. Something about seeing his screen name signed on (he's been off my buddy list for quite some time) made me incredibly queasy. I fought the urge to read his info (I doubt he has any anyway) and I'm currently fighting the urge to read his journal, which I've been so good about, and haven't read in a long time.

In the midst of this, I forgot to look for Thomas's screen name. Crap. Now I have to go back and see that there again... Wow.


EDIT: I couldn't find it.. does anyone remember the screen name? Sara?

Interviewed by Liz

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

1) Where do you see yourself in five years? Unfortunately where I see myself and where I would like to be are two different things. I would LIKE to be working on my masters or Ph. D. by that point, perhaps in Library Science. I don't think I'll be married (I'm going to make damn sure I'm right the next time I go through all of that), but perhaps in a serious relationship with a 'nice Jewish boy.' If not working on my degrees, I see myself perhaps running for a local office (as I'll be 25 at that point).

2) How did the eyebrow obsession start? Wow, I've been asked this a lot lately. It gradually began. I've always noticed people's eyebrows as one of the first things when I met them. The jumpstart of the obsession was the realization that eyebrows are the one thing that someone can change about themselves easily. It doesn't make sense to NOT have wonderful eyebrows, because they can really work with a person's face and make them look much better, and it's so easy to do. People who complain about their appearance but don't try to do anything to fix it are on my "do you hate yourself?" list.

3) If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? That's a very, very, very hard question for me. As a Jew, I'm inclined to say Israel. And I probably would go there, given my choice of destinations, but only because I think it's what I am supposed to do, and because if I only get one trip in my lifetime, I'd want that to be it. But more than wanting to see Israel, I would love to go to Rome. Florence. Venice. Athens. Sparta. Crete. The ancient ruins in those places hold much more meaning for me as a Classicist than Masada or the Western Wall would hold for me as a Jew.. or so I think now. When I actually am standing in front of something that my ancestors sacrificed themselves on... well, we'll see.

4) What clique were you in during high school? Clique? You could put me with the Band nerds, or the Latin nerds, or the general gifted group, or the Narc goody-two-shoes clique. I didn't really have one "clique." I had great friends, but we were all so different.. and I knew them from all different areas of my life... I had my friends in band, my friends in Latin... it really depended where I was at the time.

5) If you could meet any celebrity, who would you choose? I have miles of respect for Bill Clinton... but I think it'd have to be J.K. Rowling. Then I could drug her, perhaps with Veritaserum, and make her tell me the answers to my (literal) pages and pages of questions about Harry Potter.

Sorry for so many updates. On a rainy sick Saturday there's not much more to
do.

On a whim, I called Thomas's old number-- I can't believe I remembered it,
but if you read one of my recent surveys you discovered it's a crazy weird
gift of mine, Anyway, I learned that... he moved to Naples.. and he's
working at the Tae Kwon Do school down there. I got his cell number..it was
crazy weird to hear his voice again (I only got his answering machine).

I don't know why I've been in this crazy trance of getting back in touch
with old friends. I need to make NEW friends. Not embark on the past.

EDIT: Talked for awhile. He's coming up for Father's Day weekend, so I'll get to see him! :)
