...

Well, another week is beggining...And it's marking the end of my summer fling with the temp worker from my office. He going away to university, and I don't want to do the long distance thing, we're both young (he's 21 I'm 19) to commit to something like that...we'll see when he gets back.

I woke up late...not that late surprisingly, I forgot to turn my alarm clock on last night, and I woke up at 9am instead of 8am...but suprisingly enough, I was only 45 minutes late for work, which is pretty good. Exept, when I was leaving the apartment, my roomate Eric was sleeping on the couch...and his bedroom door was shut...So I'm wondering if he and Kat got in a fight...I hope not. See that's the thing when you live with a couple, you pray to God that they'll stick together 'cause it'll be hell if they split on ya. But I'm sure that they'll make it...at least I hope so.

I'm in line for a promotion, but I haven't been able to talk to the guy responsible because he was sick most of last week, and this week isn't very good for him, it's rediculously busy at the office.

Well, that's it for now.

Sunday nights

I used to laugh at my parents when they complained that the weekends weren't long enough. But now that I've been working for 3 years @ a 9 to 5 job, I get it. It's like I walk out of the office on Friday afternoon, and then poof, I'm walking back in...it sucks, I have to say.

Haven't done much this weekend, went out a few times...Me and my roomate Kat are gonna have ourselves a girls night on Thursday, it'll be a welcome distraction from all the bullshit men make us go through...*sigh* anyways, that's all I gotta say, I'm off to watch Beverly Hills cop 2.

Is it Friday yet?

....Is it friday yet? Seriously, I've had about 4 cups of coffee and my eyes are still having trouble staying open. Maybe I've developed a tolerence to coffee? I'll have to increase my intake of the stuff.

I tried out this new thing (actually, it's like a year old...but anyways) it's called Google Earth. It's crazy! I can see my office and everything...and people walking down the street. Next thing ya know, we'll be able to type someone's name and it'll show us their location. A bit invasive if you ask me.

Other than that...I haven't done much the past few days...Well, of course I've been working during the day, but every night this week has been spent watching Sex & the City re-runs and drooling at the clothes. Quite depressing actually.

I have to visit my parents on Sunday...ugh...why is it that as soon as you get out of their house, into your own gem of an apartment (no matter how doggy it is) and out of their face, they can't get enough of you, and then proceed to reduce you to shame by guilt tripping you into non-existance. I don't get it. They want you out, then they don't want you out....make up your damn mind, we are not human yo-yos.

sad....

I just heard about a little boy from Australia named Dylan who is suffering from a rare form of cancer and is currently receiving treatment in NYC.
He's a very brave little boy, he's only 6 years old and is dealing with this burden a lot better than many people who are older than him. Dylan, I'm thinking of you.
If you would like to know more about Dylan's story and would like to help, please click on the link below:

monday, monday

I hate mondays, the way it serves as a transitioning time where you go from crazy party animal and fun-loving individual to a (overnight mind you) sobbered up serious conscious adult the next morning, because you have to go to work. I personally feel that we should be able to use mondays as a recovery period, in order for us to actually be capable to function @ work.

And what a day it's been...I work in an industrial real estate firm, and yes I know it's stereotypical, but my bosses are jewish...and the company is very rich...but it doesn't mean that they give me any money....*sigh*

so, how did I get here? 19 years old and an executive assistant? No clue. I've been working full time since i was 17, first in the entertainment business (no, not porn...I mean movies...you pervs) then in the shipping industry at a customs broker's office, and now I'm here. And I plan to be here for a while, because I have no idea of what I want to be when I grow up. There are so many things, but they are not always reachable, so I rather stay put for the time being.

Anyways, I have my rent to pay, and my electricity, and phone, and internet, and groceries, and booze, etc etc...You know the drill.

I've run out of things to say actually, I think it's the first time that my mind's blank...should I be worried?

bah!


Meh...I've been single since the begginning of May, just got out of a two year relationaship...
And I've been dating like a man. So far, in total, I've dated six guys! 2 of which I'm seeing on a
3-days-apart basis. By the way, when I say dating, it doesn't necessarily mean that I've slept with them...I'm not that much of a *ahem*.

So yea...it's quite exciting actually, never know where I'm gonna go or who I'll be with, beats sitting at home watching movies.

My cousin just went back to Florence (Italy for you...ahem, people who don't know) I'll miss him...he's like a best firend, we used to spend every summer together everyday, we'd both live at my nonni's house (grandparents in italian) and we were stuck like glue. But for the past few years, I've been workin...a lot. So I don't get to see him as much as before, and it kind of breaks my heart, to know all the time we've been apart. After all, we only see each other once a year.

But I'm planning on heading over there for about a week in april, so that will be fun!!! Can't wait actually, just for the fact that I won't have to go to work for a whole week! yay...

So yes, I'm gonna go back to work...this is a bad habit.
