|It's been a long road, getting from there to here.

My, oh my. I haven't been on Livejournal in ages but I realize that I forgot to do my obligatory "it's the end of another school year" livejournal entry, so I suppose I will do that now.|
It has been such a long, eventful year. Schoolwise, I've been beat. First semester was awesome; I got all A's and an A-. Second semester KICKED. MY. ASS. Two C's, a B, and two A-. Yeesh. I don't really know what happened. I guess I can blame a good portion of it on the fact that a lot of my free time second semester was devoted to work. I also despised chemistry and ichthyology with great passions, and those were the classes I ended up getting C's in. But I suppose I should be very grateful cause I definitely could have failed both of them had huge curves not helped me. I still haven't told my parents yet, and I know they are going to make me show them sometime this summer and I am scared of what will happen. They still aren't over the fact that I'm going down the "wrong path in life." Just this morning, my mother asked me if was still planning on "doing that environmental stupid major?" I told her a confident, and unfaltering YES and she dropped the matter but then she chopped her chicken with attitude, so I'm sure my parents still talk about it to all my relatives behind my back. Because they are very ashamed. And embarrassed. What a dumb little Indian kid I must be, not going into medicine! Or engineering! Good Lord! Thinking outside the box?! Breaking the pattern?! What is this tomfoolery?!?! Anyway, I am glad school is over, though I wish I was still in Columbia and away from this house and its constricting rules.
Anyway, moving on... working at Eva J's this past semester was an overall good experience, I thought. Sure, it definitely didn't help me in the grades department. But, I finally had my first real job. I worked at the gas station, yeah...but my boss was my DAD. That's not real. I didn't even get a real paycheck from the man. Working at Eva J's was such a learning experience. And all the people I met! I'll never forget them. I'll never forget that stupid, retarded Asian Yufu. Or cute, old Rudy who would always say "Teresa!' in his cute Spanish accent every time he saw me. I definitely won't forget the dynamic duo that is James and Tone. Haha... Jay Kay... I really can't forget that dummy. I can't forget Ernest, and I'm kinda sad I never really got to know him. We sort of had a conversation about what he plans to do with his life on my very last shift and it made me regret never really talking to him before then. I can't forget Lisa McDaniels and her little twig self: my first real "boss." Can't forget Mark, especially if he's still trying to be a part of my life, which means I can't forget that dumb little she-slut who's in his closet. And I can't forget my pizza to go people. Finney (even though I never really worked with him), Marriott (who may be one of my favorite people who works there), Sam and Liz, George Bailey!, and of course Ben. I'm gonna miss Ben. He was such a stud. But it'll be nice to leave Eva J's and move on to Rollins. At least I'll be working with Elizabeth and people I like and I'll be working pizza shifts, which are always my fave.
And blah blah blah no one cares about work, let's talk about what I absolutely love in life: my friends! My best friends. Ha, I remember way back at the end of freshman year when we had to fill out our ROARs and Alba and Elizabeth wanted to leave in one of the new dorms and I was like ehhh, and I picked a room in Cramer. But then I noticed a room that was open just a room away from theirs. And it dawned on me, that there's no point if Cramer is less expensive... I would be living with losers like ERICH (with an H!!). And so I switched. And then I had this Asian roommate, but she like... left in a heartbeat. And then this blonde girl took her spot and I was like cool, maybe this one will work out...maybe I'll like this one. She stuck around for a bit. But then she left "accidentally," but it was on purpose, most definitely. So then, I was like whateverrrr. And then another girl took her spot and her name was Julia. Elizabeth checked her out and said that she meowed a lot. I learned that this was a pretty true observation. And the beginning of the year was rocky. Rocky in the sense that it was just awkward, I suppose. But then again, it usually is between new roommates. And we quickly got over that. And now she is one of my best friends. And I am so grateful that those other two roommates I had left, because she really has changed my life for the better. And she'll never really know how much I appreciate her and love her. :)
But continuing on this topic, the four of us have become very close. But there was way too much drama throughout the course of the year that tested all of our friendships with each other. It would have been nice if it never happened, but I guess I am kinda glad it did; it did bring us all together at the end. Especially with the latest drama that unfolded, all of us banded together in support. I'm glad that the situation happened just because it showed how strong our friendships are. And now... we're living in a house together! This excited me like no other. I simply can't wait for August. I just can't believe that the next time I'll be living in Columbia, it will be with three people I absolutely adore! And with three animals! :) There is so much to look forward to in this next year. I can't wait to see what unfolds. I wanted to write more, but Friends is going to be on in six minutes and I have been blabbing way too much as it is. Til next year, when I write in this journal again!
