Shaking and Crying

I just watched "Carrie" for the first time. I wasn't feeling it much...until the gym scene. Carrie's crazy eyes are going to give me some serious nightmares.


Somebody come and cuddle with me. :(

I feel like summer is halfway over.

How is it possible that I have fit so much into so little time since school ended?

I have been a busy little bee as of late. I took a trip to Phoenix and Vegas with my best girlfriends at the beginning of June, and it was AMAZING. I'm a true Texan through-and-through, but I think I have thoroughly fallen in love with Phoenix. It is something about the landscape, the people, just the general atmosphere that makes me feel like I'm at home. My best friend's boyfriend (and almost fiance, something I am so excited about) lives in Phoenix. He's about to move to Austin soon, but we just had to make a visit before then.



Vegas was, of course, nothing more than crazy. Debauchery to be had by all. I've been once before, but that was just with my parents. We only gambled -- no sightseeing, or anything like that. My friends and I made sure to fit in as much as we possibly could.











Soon after my trip, I made a little visit to Austin, just to spend the night with my best friend and have a little more fun. Now, I'm back in Dallas for good, staying at my parent's place until my apartment is finished in Austin before the fall semester. I start an LSAT class on Tuesday -- begin the excitement... I take the test in September. I'm really gonna have to get crackin'. Don't want to mess this up!

As of right now, I'm catching up on a lot of TV shows I have always wanted to watch (such as Supernatural, and Dexter), and watching some old favorites (Season 1 of Alias right now...man, I loved this show. And Jennifer Garner is such a fierce bitch). Speaking of favorites: TRUE BLOOD began tonight, and it was great. I really love the twists they take that steer away from the books. They keep the important parts, but expand on characters that we never get to know in the books. I love what they have done for Lafayette, Tara, and Jason's characters. For some reason, them straying from the books doesn't bother me as much as it usually does in other movies and such. ALTHOUGH, this episode was lacking a serious amount of Eric. NEEDS MOAR ERIC.

Okay lovelies, I'm off to watch some more DVDs. Stay classy. :)

I'm crazy.

But, I've decided I am going to try to read every book on the "1001 Books to Read Before You Die" list by the end of the year.

I've got a good chunk of the classics already marked off. I could probably get most of it done by the end of the summer.

Crazy? Nope, just bored now that classes are over.

Sweet, sweet summer.

It is officially summer for me. I'm in Dallas (home sweet home) now, just organizing my room. But mostly, dancing around to music on my iTunes while I haphazardly put things away.

What am I going to do for summer? A whole lot of nothing exiting (EXCEPT for the trip to Phoenix/Vegas I'll be taking with my Austin girls at the beginning of June!). I'll be taking an LSAT class to prepare for the test in September. All I REALLY want to do is curl up with a bunch of good books. The library is going to be my best friend these next few months.

What do you guys have planned for summer?

PS. My mind is still sad/bewildered/asdfkjwiejflsdkjf over LOST. I have a sickness.

PSS. I'm going to go watch Pride and Prejudice, because it's summer and I can do whatever I want. Laziness+movies=key summertime happiness.

I'm BACK.

I gave up the LJ for a while...part of my whole GET-OFF-THE-COMPUTER-AND-GET-A-LIFE resolution.

But it's time to come back. :)

To make things even worse, I have a TWITTER now. follow me @kileydawn.


All I know is that a new Lost is on tomorrow, and that is about the only good thing I have going on this week. Is it summer yet?

In other news:
NEW MOON PHOTOS!

Sadly, no RPattz in these photos. But lots of Taylor. :) And unfortunately, it appears that Kristen Stewart's hair will be even WORSE in this movie that the last.

Could I BE anymore ____ (fill in the blank).

Have you ever seen "Little Black Book"? Well, don't. It's a terrible movie. But in it, Brittany Murphy's mom listens to Carly Simon anytime she's down, needs to think, is dealing with a hard time, etc. etc. I realized today that I have the same kind of habit, but with the TV show "Friends". I own every season, and I can nearly quote every line. And no, it never gets old, no matter how many times I watch it, or how well I can quote it line by line. When I was going through a break up recently (after almost 3 years of on-and-off bullshit), I believe I watched the entire series through, and by the time I was finished, I felt immensely better. I got up off the couch, took a shower, and got on with my life. Today was a difficult day. All I did was go to work, and nothing bad happened there...it wasn't one of those types of bad days. It was the kind you get when you're in your head too much. Thinking can be a dangerous thing. When I got home tonight after work, I popped in disc one of season 8, the season where Rachel tells everyone she's pregnant. I only watched the first two episodes, but now I feel much better. Crazy, right?

I think this habit originated around my sophomore year of highschool. I met this guy that went to a different highschool as me, and immediately fell for him. He was Honduran, totally reminded me a bit of a cross between Antonio Banderas and Benicio del Toro, and at that time I had this huge thing for Latino guys. We went on one date, and I was hooked. I thought things were about to go really well, until it was almost a week later and he had never called. I ended up throwing in the whole wait-until-he-calls-you towel and called his house. His brother told me he was out. I called the next day, he couldn't come to the phone. It was very obvious he was avoiding me. I was devastated. This had been my first date with a guy since I got dumped by my first ever boyfriend. I was having some really bad luck with all of the "firsts" in my life. What tore me apart was that we had had such a great date (or so I thought). My mom had recently bought me season 2 of "Friends". It was winter break, I had a lot of time on my hands, and spent it lying in bed, depressed, watching season 2 from beginning to end. By the end, I could have cared less about The Honduran. I was too preoccupied with Ross' antics, Rachel being stressed out about Ross and Julie, and so on. I felt so much better; It was like free therapy. I got over the loser without the cajones to tell me himself he wasn't feeling it, and went on to the new school semester with a happier outlook on life. There was somebody else out there for me, and I'd find him soon enough. I knew I would one day find the Ross to my Rachel, but it might take a couple of Joshuas and Paolos to find him.

So God bless you David Crane and Marta Kauffman for "Friends". You saved me thousands in therapy bills.
