..........WOAH, baby. that was the most freaking amazing/intense/gratifying game i have ever been to.
hour long car ride. beach in view. ipod-and-me time. nap. malibu. roaming deer. pepperdine university. firestone fieldhouse. warm up. balls hitting spectators. pizza pretzels. annoying pepperdine fans. #2 taylor wilson! what a cutie. irvine losing. down two games to nothing. "you're breaking my balls!". a million and two service errors. frustration. crazy cheering. jayson jablonski! irvine wins next game. 2-1. "man boobs!". volleyball = almost stolen. 2-2. game 5. "sideout!" "but why?" HAHHA. number 9 the butt-picker. awkward. 14-15. irvine wins next point. final score: 14-16; uc irvine dominates. we go insane. another hour long car ride. home.
pretty much one of the best saturdays ever.

"beauty queen of only eighteen. she had some trouble with herself. he was always there to help her. she always belonged to someone else. i drove for miles and miles and wound up at your door. i've had you so many times but somehow i want more. i don't mind spending everyday out on your corner in the pouring rain. look for the girl with the broken smile. ask her if she wants to stay awhile. and she will be loved. she will be loved. tap on my window knock on my door. i want to make you feel beautiful. i know i tend to get so insecure. it doesn't matter anymore. it's not always rainbows and butterflies. it's compromise that moves us along. my heart is full and my door's always open. you can come anytime you want. i don't mind spending everyday out on your corner in the pouring rain. look for the girl with the broken smile. ask her if she wants to stay awhile. and she will be loved. and she will be loved. and she will be loved. and she will be loved. i know where you hide alone in your car. know all of the things that make you who you are. i know that goodbye means nothing at all. comes back and begs me to catch her every time she falls. tap on my window knock on my door. i want to make you feel beautiful. i don't mind spending everyday out on your corner in the pouring rain. look for the girl with the broken smile. ask her if she wants to stay awhile. and she will be loved. and she will be loved. and she will be loved. and she will be loved..."

we all have those friends that we become closer to, those that drift apart from you over time, those that are newly found, and those whose relationships typically stay the same with you. and this year, christina is one of the few people i was close to last year, but got even closer to this year. others i was close to last year, but not so much this year. others have drifted. others' friendships have just started. and others i have neither gotten closer nor farther from. but not christina. this year i feel as if our friendship has gotten that much stronger. boredom is not in my vocabulary when i'm around this girl. the things we say when we're together make absolutely no sense and yet make perfect sense to us at the exact same time. our humor at times tends to be only humorous to us, but that's okay because it makes it that much more enjoyable. we stuff our faces with food when we're together and exercise together when necessary. good combination, right? yeah, she's good people.

after a much needed week of rest and relaxation, spring break is officially, dare i say it, over. tomorrow we shall once again step on to school grounds facing hours of work, racking our brains with knowledge. and i find it fascinating that i am not in the least bit dreading it as much as i thought i would. this is good, no? maybe it's because i have filled myself to a dangerously high capacity with freedom, movies, friends, family, and all of the good stuff that i missed ever-so-much while school was taking place. and i must say, i am very content with all the fun i've had this break...
- moulin rouge
- pursuit of happyness
- THE HOLIDAY
- never been kissed
- life is beautiful
- pretty in pink
- VIP buffet
- mall at orange with mom and sister
- helped sister pick out prom dress (pretty! :D)
- finished all homework wednesday
- got election stuff done with christina
and now, i am left with only a couple more hours until sleep must come over me and i must awaken before the sun has even risen to dive into an "ordinary" weekday. tomorrow i shall walk onto campus with those ever-so-famous-words of duckie dale lingering in my head...
"welcome to another day of higher education."
"i have been beating my brains in trying to impress you people. listen gibby, kirstin, krysten, you will spend your whole lives trying to keep others down because it makes you feel more important, but why her? let me tell you about this girl. she is amazing. i was new here and she befriended me no questions asked. but you, you were only my friends after my brother, rob, told you to like me. there is a great big world out there and it won't matter if you were the most popular girl, the quarterback of the football team, or the biggest nerd in school. find out who you are and try not to be afraid of it."
thank you, kimly.

so, personally i've never liked scary movies. well i guess it's not that i didn't like them, i just couldn't handle them. that's the way it's always been. ever since...forever. i always stayed away from scary movies whenever possible. and when i did have to watch them, my eyes would be closed for more than half of the movie. so anyway, i watched disturbia tonight. why you ask? because i watched the trailer and thought that it wouldn't be that bad. plus, jameson really really wanted to see it. so i went cause i wanted to hang. NOT SMART. i am officially staying away from scary movies until i'm two hundred and sixty five years old. the end.

"drowning just as fast as i can, but don't throw me a line, don't reach out your hand. cause i'm on the brink of something beautiful and i want to sing about it, but i don't know where to begin. write a letter, but the words don't come out right. try and explain how nobody can do me like...you don't understand how helpless i get since the day that we met. oh, can you feel it yet? it's never been more perfect being alive. i've never been so satisfied. i could feel something different from the first time. heaven made sense and all the words rhymed. no chance in stopping now; i'm taking it all. and now i'm caught in the air. it's a good glide. pass it up? wouldn't dare. what a wild ride. i remember being ready and waiting to fall. just like i did tonight. spinning around and around until my left was my right and up became down. with just one look you knocked me off of my feet. so unable to speak. oh, how you made me weak. though it was a while ago, i still can recall that moment so ready and waiting to fall. can you take me back in time? remembering when you captured my heart over and over again. it's never been more perfect being alive. i've never been so satisfied. i could feel something different from the first time. heaven made sense and all the words rhymed. no chance in stopping now; i'm taking it all. and now i'm caught in the air. it's a good glide. pass it up? wouldn't dare. what a wild ride. i remember being ready and waiting to fall. just like i did tonight..."

the logical approach: hugging is healthy. it helps the immune system, cures depression, reduces stress, and induces sleep. it's invigorating, rejuvenating and has no unpleasant side effects. it's nothing less than a miracle painkiller. hugging is all natural; it's organic, naturally sweet, has no artificial ingredients, environmentally friendly and is 100% wholesome. hugging is the ideal gift. great for any occasion, fun to give and receive, shows you care, comes with it's own wrapping paper and, of course, is fully returnable.

"out one day, walking one day. out one day with you, hallelujah. we found a wood with trolleys on wheels rolling all around the hills, hallelujah. and just as soon, it had slipped into the sleepy dusk and it's not very likely that we'll see it, we'll see it again. out one day, walking one day. out one day with you, hallelujah. we found a wood, we un-found a wood and then we cried, "oh no". and please tell me will we ever find it again? in the depths of trolley wood do trolleys still drive? gone for the day to the trolley wood; i've gone for the day to the trolley wood. the trolley wood is taking me away. out one day with you, hallelujah. we found a wood, we un-found a wood and then we cried, "oh no". and please tell me will we ever find it again? in the depths of trolley wood do trolleys still drive? out one day, walking one day. out one day with you, hallelujah..."
happy easter, my friends.

"here comes a cold. break out the winter clothes and find a love to call your own. you - enter you. your cheeks a shade of pink and the rest of you in powder blue. who knows what will be, but i'll make you this guarantee. no way november will see our goodbye. when it comes to december it's obvious why no one wants to be alone at Christmas time. in the dark, on the phone you tell me the names of your brothers and your favorite colors. i'm learning you. and when it snows again, we'll take a walk outside and search the sky like children do. i'll say to you...no way november will see our goodbye. when it comes to december it's obvious why no one wants to be alone at Christmas time. and come january we're frozen inside, making new resolutions a hundred times. february, won't you be my valentine? and we'll both be safe 'til st. patrick's day. we should take a ride tonight around the town and look around at all the beautiful houses. something in the way that blue lights on a black night can make you feel more. everybody, it seems to me, just wants to be just like you and me. no one wants to be alone at Christmas time. come january we're frozen inside, making new resolutions a hundred times. february, won't you be my valentine? and if our always is all that we gave and we someday take that away, i'll be alright if it was just 'til st. patrick's day..."
