|post-prom natterings on
I have a sore throat, and a headache, because I was stupid enough to let myself get dehydrated.
Last night was fun. I danced all arvo, which somehow made my arm start complaining at 4 AM... but anyway. Patrick was actually a really good date- he got me a bouquet. :) And he danced! Wow! Willingly, even! Normally the only way I can get a guy to dance is to force 'em. (coughcoughCORYcough) But it was a lot of fun. I hung out with Angel most of the night, actually- she's sweet. I crashed not 20 minutes after I got home, only taking time to put my flowers in water and shower.
I was 'sposed to go to church today, but I didn't wake up until time to leave and I feel like donkey poo on a stick, so I stayed home whilst the rest of the family skedaddled. It's nice having the house all to myself- it happens very rarely. So I ate cookies and watched "Hoodwinked". Yes, I'm juvenile.
I glued drink umbrellas into my journal. They're pretty.
The music last night was a million miles from what I'm used to dancing to, but maybe that was good. If they'd played one out of a select couple of songs, I'd have started crying. Seriously. One in particular, although I can't remember the name... during the last dance I was at, up in VA, Jimmy and I sang along to this one song, and were pretending we weren't singing it at each other... yeah. Anyway...
I danced with Joey! And survived! I felt silly, because I don't even come up to his shoulder and I'm nowhere near his level of dancing ability, but I did ok. :)
So, yeah. 'Twas fun.

I'm leaving for the school prom in 15 minutes. I'm already ready to go- enough purple to kill a cow, evil high heels, pretty pretty mini purse thing, camera, sparkly things... I'm all set.
I REALLY wish Jimmy was here.
However, I'm a bit peeved at him over something that happened over the phone last night--minor thing, really, but still irritating--so it balances it out a bit.
I still wish Jimmy were here.

DEATH TO DR. KONA!!!
This is the SECOND TIME he has pushed back my appointment. Second time! In the same friggin' week!
To say that I am frustrated would, I feel, be putting things lightly.

This journal has been giving me fits, so I'm leaving it here for archival purposes and changing over to actually *writing* under the LJ username easyasbreathing. If you're really interested in continueing to read about my life, you can do so there.

This weekend ROCKED.
There was the Virginia Symphony, and putt-putt, and X3, and a thunderstorm, and cemetary-wandering out the wazoo, lots of ice cream, hair spray...
And most importantly, I finally was able to really talk to Jimmy about everything that has happened in my life to give me all these weird issues. I told him why I had that anxiety attack, why I have those issues... and he just held my hand and listened. I'd been shaking all day before that- and when I started telling him all this I've been hiding for so long, I stopped shaking. It was a HUGE relief.
I am going to miss him SO MUCH over the summer.

You are famous for: Being a friend to everyone. Even the grumpiest person gets along with you.
How you life your life: Joyfully. "Super. Duper. Flooper."
Me? Sane? HAH!

I feel bad on principle, but no matter which way I turn it, it was the right thing to do.
Sometimes things just have to be said.
I spent well over an hour on the phone with Jimmy last night, nattering on about anything and everything (except anything important, of course). 'Twas nice. I don't think he'd admit it, but his weekend probably sucked as much as mine did. (Leave me my fantasies.)
He won't tell me what's going on Friday, but we're doing something Friday, and then on Saturday we (along with Justin and Zach) are going to see X3. Woo! And then Sunday I'll be at church with them, of course. At any rate, I am seriously looking forward to this weekend.
The only part that might suck is having to explain to Jimmy explain why I had that weird episode last week, and what brought it on. THAT is going to be an exceedingly awkward conversation, uh huh.
I had my MRI last night- I do believe they took pictures of the right bits, this time. Yay! I'll find out for sure Thursday, and I can't wait to know what my medical fate is. (Will it be therapy? Surgury? Splint? The leave-it-alone-and-see approach? My heart's aflutter with anticipation.)
|Wednesday, May 17th, 2006|
I had a lovely trip to the ER last night, following some kind of weird episode wherein odd things happened on both a physical and psychological level.
Doctor gave me a sedative, said I had anxiety and depression (naw duh) and finally turned me loose at 1:15 in the morning. I slept until well after 10, a good thing considering I've been sleeping like crap since Friday.
I has issues, uh huh.

This is going to sound utterly ridiculous, but...
Jimmy kissed me.
Well, I can no longer claim I am the lone unkissed 19-year-old...
(dissolves into squee-ness)

I stayed home today, due partly to a sore throat but mostly to acute senioritis.
Both Erica and I got jobs at the BSA camp- me as an assistant cook, she as a dishwasher. Wootage! We're starting at $150 a week, hers will climb to $175 eventually, mine a bit higher as I'm a cook. I also learned that my cousin Christopher Roberts will also be working there- not cool. He's a total trog. His brother Charles is way worse, but I don't like either one very much.
Both the elders are going to BYU when they get off theri missions. I swear, everyone is going to BYU. It's actually kinda cool. :) (Elder Wainwright wants to do something artsy! Awesomeness!)
I ate entirely too many cookies and am now both hyper and nauseous. Not a combination that bodes particularly well, I'm afraid.
I can't wait to get out of here.

|ironically enough, a pretty typical Monday evening in the Fereday household
It's been eventful.
Firstly, I've felt crappy since yesterday morning. Some kind of bug involving a nasty headache and a sore throat.
The only good news of the day- I got the job at the BSA camp. I need to be there June 11th, but I can handle that. Have ticket, will fly.
On the other hand... Erica had some kind of collapse. And before you say it, someone can NOT fake low blood pressure, unconsciousness, pale clammy skin, crappy breathing, and dilated eyes all at once. She was hauled off to Albemarle Hospital in an ambulance. Mom went with. I'm staying up until I hear something, and who knows how late that'll be... but I can afford it, I don't have Seminary tomorrow due to a sick teacher, and I'll probably be home with Gabe tomorrow anyway as Erica panicks if she doesn't have someone she knows with her, especially if there are needles involved.
PLus, I won't be in VA at all until Saturday, when I had previously expected to be there tomorrow and Friday as well. Poo. Jimmy was displeased, but he'll live. We'll figure out some way to hang out a bit on Saturday, particularly since I won't see him over prom weekend at all (poo, I say) so yeah.
I told him about Pat getting me flowers at prom, and he sounded rather jealous. :) This pleases me, for reasons I can not yet fathom. (Maybe I'm just an emotional sadist.)
I don't see Jimmy nearly often enough anymore, particularly since after June 10th I won't have a chance to until August. Late August, even- I don't expect him to get out to Provo any earlier than the 27th. Poo, I say. I am definitely going to meet him at the airport when he arrives, though- duh!!
Anyway, I have the BSA job, and it sounds easy (basically reheating hot dogs every day for two months) and it starts at $150 a week, with free room and board. Crappy pay, sure, but more regular than my babysitting job and with hopes of it going up. The guy I talked to, Tyler Terry, said he hadn't got the budget finalized so hopefully I'll get myself a bit of a pay raise, even if only 10-20 bucks. Hey, every little bit counts when you're going off to college.
So, yeah. Eventful.

I suppose it surprises no one that the review was nastier than the test.
I am referring, of course, to the AP English exam which I endured this morning. Lemme tell ya, it's hard to concentrate on writing about Thomas hardy when you have to pee. Other than that, though, it wasn't that bad- I only had one question on the multiple choice bit that gave me a hard time.
Of course, we all know this means I did horribly and will get the lwoest grade in the history of the AP English exam. That's how it always is, isn't it.
In other news... due to my excruciating lack of funds, I'm forgoing the limo ride with Pat and just meeting everyone at the school for prom. I'm also considering nixing the retarded cheongsam, as the alterations are NOT going well (zippers frighten me, and I've been stabbed with pins at least 3-4 times) so I'm about ready to throw in the proverbial towel and wear the sparkly thing I wore to the masquerade. A bit gauche to wear the same thing twice in a row to formals, sure, but I know it fits and I look awesome in it, so I'm going to poll the various females in the house for their opinions. I simply haven't time to fix up the cheongsam properly by Saturday night, and neither does my mother. By the 20th, sure--I'll wear it to that, durr--but not by the 6th. Heavens preserve us.
Mom looked up airfare stuff for Erica and I to fly to Utah on the 11th of June. Given the flight schedule, I'll probably go to at least one graduation party that weekend. :) YAY parties! I'm crossing my fingers in the sincere hopes that both Erica and I get jobs. I know I will, but I'm worried about Erica's chances.
Speaking of Erica, her parents are going to turn over full custody. :) She's goin' to Utah with us forever and ever and ever and EVER... (bounces) She'd been stressing a lot over that, and finally talked to her parents, and her stress level (and probably ehr blood pressure too) dropped to around negative 15 when it was finally done. All that's left now is the legalities, which need to be cleared up like, yesterday- Dad's flying out to Utah for the new job on the 15th.

My mother can be SO petty sometimes.
Ok, for those of you who doen't know- I am going to the PCHS prom with Patrick Parr. This is due to the fact that his girlfriend will be out of town, and I can't go unless someone takes me (because I lack fundage to pay prom dues) so, after everyone enthusiastically shouted the idea in English, he's taking me. I also got a job lined up in SLC for the summer, working at a Boy Scout camp as an assistant cook with my Aunt Lisa. This means I will be leaving for Utah right after graduation instead of in July.
My mother is of the opnion that when I inform Jimmy of all this, I ought to try and make him jealous or something. She's still sore over the him-not-being-able-to-take-me-to-stake-p
rom thing, and it's just ridiculous.
I have to admit, Jimmy WILL be a bit put out over the whole thing. I feel horrible for it, but this strikes me as incredibly amusing. It means he'll miss me. :)
I've been trying to get in touch with Jimmy since yesterday afternoon, but I haven't been able to. He's not picking up his cell and no one's at his house, which means the whole darn family went up to DC for the stake temple trip, so I'll be lucky to talk to him before tomorrow afternoon. Sorry butt.
Oh well. Such is life.
I have to teach Sharing Time for the little kids tomorrow, and I have no clue how I'm supposed to do it, so I'm stalling getting my lesson together. How am I supposed to keep 15 small children amused for 40 minutes, with the other teachers watching?!?!?!

HAHA can now officially say Jimmy's my boyfriend.
It was, obviously, a good weekend.
On Friday, we went to the park for a picnic. Originally it was meant to be a group date, but no one else could find a date, so it ended up being me, Jimmy, and three other girls. Yeah. Needless to say, Jimmy and I abandoned the tagalongs pretty early on. It was raining, but we walked around anyway. He had to babysit that night, so I was home at 8, but still.
Yesterday was this big priest/laurel activity in VA Beach. There were more guys than girls! Amazing! Granted, I didn't much care, because Jimmy was there... yeah. We did all these cool games, and then we had a humongous dance. THAT involved all sorts of interesting things that are better described in RL, as I don't have the patience to type it all.
After the dance, neither of us wanted to leave, so we found an empty sitting-room type thing and just sat and tried not to fall asleep on each other, no matter how much we would've liked to. (Jimmy has bony shoulders, but I don't care. He's comfy anyway.)
I won't be up again until May 9th, and then only for the evening, 'specdially cuz it's a school night. Poo.
He gave me my birthday present- RENT on DVD, and a copy of the Lion King OBC soundtrack. He said I have to burn him a copy of the CD, though. :) 'Tis gorgemous, by the way.
It was a great weekend. I've got warm fuzzies practically coming out of my ears.

|You Are Midnight|
You are more than a little eccentric, and you're apt to keep very unusual habits.
Whether you're a nightowl, living in a commune, or taking a vow of silence - you like to experiment with your lifestyle.
Expressing your individuality is important to you, and you often lie awake in bed thinking about the world and your place in it.
You enjoy staying home, but that doesn't mean you're a hermit. You also appreciate quality time with family and close friends.
WE'RE MOVING TO UTAH!!!
