Thanksgiving makes me realize what little family I actually have. We didn't/aren't even doing anything, because it's just too pointless. I have no cousins... that I will acknowledge, and that's actually fine with me. And I understand why we can't get together and have Thanksgiving dinner, and I'm fine with that! But it makes me sad that I have so little family, and soon, it's going to get even smaller. There's nothing I can do about it. I know that.
I used to look SO forward to Christmas, cuz everyone would go to someone's house, and Shannon, Mandy and me would all sleep in one room...well we would pretend to sleep, so that the parents would put our stockings out, and then we'd open them right away, to give us a little fix before the big morning!! And I could never wait until summer came, cuz I knew that meant that we would be going up to the lake, and everyone would be up there, and we'd go tubing, and sit around the fire and play The Alphabet Game, and everyone would get drunk. And I would think of how great it was going to be when I turned 18, and could drink with them. THAT never happened.
And now, I have no real aunt, I'm scared of my uncle, no cousins. They can all die for all I care. My Grandma is nuts!! and my Grandpa is dying. I have SO much to be thankful for. Ohhhh yes.
Oh, and now mom is getting mad, cuz I'm typing too much. Wahoo.

11:41 am Cool, Calm, and Collected: Enter Britney Spears?!?!
Hey Y'all, what's going on? Today was the funnest day in Gladstone Homecoming HISTORY!!! All because I dressed up like Britney Spears for celebrity day. I put my hair in high pigtails and braided them, then put adorkable pink ribbons on the end. Well, the rest of the outfit is pretty self explainatory, the skirt and the knee socks, you know... we've all seen that video 50 million times. Melissa took a picture of me blowing her a kiss *SOOOO CUTE* she also took a picture of me, Danika, and Krista. (the other one)
I think everyone agreed I was the dopest Britney there!!! YEY!!! Oh yeah, I was also a half hour late for school, so I had to walk into health with all the
people looking at me... pretty sweet!!!
Current Mood: accomplished
Current Music: Baby...One More Time - Britney Spears... DOY!
(shoot the shit)
I got to go shopping today! And I went HOG wild!! I got a really cool window picture frame, where there's like... 2 little windows.. and they open up! And I bought the last book in my series. All the bathroom products that I needed... and I almost bought 2 shampoos! How stupid would that have been?? It wasn't like clothes shopping or anything, which is fine, cuz of all the California stuff, y'know. But it was nice to spend money!!
We also got our passport pictures taken.... hah, that was a laugh and a half! Mine turned out the best.. and mine is hideous but whatever, no one is really going to see it.
I still haven't got around to cleaning my room. I'll prolly do that tonight, cuz Eryn isn't going to be online =( So I don't have much to do.
Speaking of cleaning, I hate the guys in this family. They can't do ANYTHING. Well, especially Chris. The basement is always a mess, food, dirty clothes, just general shit everywhere. He doesn't LIVE in the basement, so he's got no right to do whatever he wants down there. We come home today, and no one's fed OR watered the dogs, there's garbage remains of whatever Chris bought this afternoon laying around on the counter. He's just a dirty slob, and I"m getting sick of having to clean up after him. Seriously.
Argh. The dogs are annoying me too!!!!!
(shoot the shit)
This is what I learned today!
(shoot the shit)
I'm checking out futureshop.ca right now, seeing what they've got for computer. Seems not much is online. I'll check out hp.com next, I know I wanna get an HP, and I'll prolly get it from Future Shop, cuz I know they always back up their products. Like when the hard drive blew on this one, they had it fixed within a couple of days. And we've had HP's for the last couple of years, and didn't have nearly as many problems as when we had the NEC.
I'm also thinking that I want this way before January... and I really don't see why I couldn't. I have many options. One being using my mastercard, and just paying it monthly, or putting it on dad's Future Shop card, and paying him installments. Thing is, mom's worried about me not having money for California... I'll have 3 months of work behind me by the time we go, and there's nothing I would be buying in the mean time (besides the computer) It would just be so much easier for me. I would much rather sit in my room and compute, than sit down here. And I wouldn't have to have all these stupid passwords, cuz it would be my own, and I wouldn't have to worry about all the security shit. Altho, then mom would have to get a hub... and i don't know if she would do that until she gets hers. I'm sure I'll prolly have to end up waiting =(
Eryn, you have a hub.. what did it cost? Was it hard to hook it all up?
I still haven't even attempted to get ready for work. I had a shower, but I didn't want to get dressed, cuz then I would be dressed for almost 2 hours, and I want to wear those clothes as little as possible! Speaking of which, I gotta buy some more stuff... I don't wanna wear the same thing alll the time... plus I need shirts with collars, cuz the stupid apron gave me a HUGE ass rash. Grrrrr.
Time to get motivated!!

Ya, stupid-girl-at-work-whom-I-don't-know-her-name told me that I worked at 10:00 am this morning, so I get there, and Linda's like "Hmm, you don't work till 10:30" And ya know, that's what I thought too, but I tought I would be careful and check, as not to fuck up. I don't know who told me that, but I know the she's the one who yelled at us about the produce codes, and she talks to everyone like they're 5. WHORE
I realized just how much I didn't want to work today, and felt dumb for saying that I would come in early, so I told them I felt sick this morning, and asked if at all possible, could I leave early. And when I went to go for my second break, Danielle caught me as i was going upstairs and told me that I could leave! Yay! I worked 5 hours, which was more than my actual scheduled shift.
And I was pleasantly surprised when I went to check next weeks schedule, and I only work Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday! So I get Saturday and Sunday off, and then Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday.... I don't think I'm working Friday it says ROD/ in the box, and I don't know what that means. Chris' show is that day, and I really hope that me and Eryn get to go!
I so seriously need to go get new shoes. I wore my Etnies yesterday, for the 9 hours, my feet didn't even really hurt at all, but today, like 3 hours into the shift, I hadda taken them off cuz my tootsies were aching so bad. I guess I'll just have to put up with it for tommorow, and then I'll get some new ones on Saturday. I was hoping that they had some high tech looking Nikes, like the red ones and blue ones, cuz I'd much rather wear those than stupid loafers or somethign like that. My name is Melissa, and I am a dork
I'm so giddy cuz Eryn told me about International next year.. it's like 330 some days away, but I cannot wait until we go! It's going to be so much fun. I just love going on road trips, the drive is the best part! Especially if you have someone fun to drive it with, and there's no one funner than Eryn, lemme tell you that. We have hella fun just driving around Millhood... we drive in the day, so it's fun, not scary.
I can hear my dirty room calling my name, it's saying "HELP! I can't breath, all these clothes are suffocating me! And Mr. Bed is crying cuz his sheets are all twisted up!" Honestly, that's what it's saying. If I could stand for longer than 3 minutes without being in excruciating pain, I would clean it. I will before 9:00. That's when FRIENDS is on!! That's my absolute favorite show of all time. I start to chuckle just thinking about it tonight! Miss = Dork
Snack time!! And coke of course.
(shoot the shit)
When I get my new pooter. I'm gonna get a new LJ account. I don't know why... well basically cuz I didn't know that when you picked your user name, that meant the address part.... so I put an abbreviation of the journal name, and now it's ridiculously stupid. Plus I'd like a fresh start. So that's what I'ma do. Altho, that's like 3 months away.... but I felt like informing all of you non-readers out there....

|Subject:||Suck my bUm!|
I'm bored... and tired... and sore... could I complain any more? Why, yes! My dog is retarted. A job that, under normal circumstances, should take roughly 20 minutes, took almost 45. It's REALLY hard to vacuum with 80lbs of dead weight attached to the hose. Believe me. Take my word for it.
Work was ok today, long... but I shouldn't think that, cuz tommorow is gonna be ever worse. 9 hours baby. 9 effing hours. Well... technically 8, cuz I get an hour, unpaid lunch. But lemme just tell you this, I really don't like MJ... we were told by her, Danielle, Stephanie... EVERYONE that you should never hesitate to call a supervisor, it's better to get them there, instead of screwing something up. And that's what I did, but everytime I called MJ, [which was only like... twice] it was this big production, and she always sounded so annoyed. Yet when I call Linda, she's so happy, and cheerful. But I think I did impress MJ when she came around and told us 10 minutes, and she went to explain that I should do the bundles like right now and I just said "Already done" she seemed surprised... ya, I think I more surprised her than impressed her.
Loma told mom that she was watching me yesterday, and she said I was just winging stuff thru... and then Loma told the girl in the hair place who I was [Frank's neice] and she was watching me too, and said she couldn't believe that it was only my second day, so does that mean I'm doing good? I don't know... no one's really told me! I can hope so... I know that I don't dread it all that much.
Oooo, I was so pissed this morning... dad was sposta wake me up when he left, so that I was semi-concious, but he failed to do so... so guess what time I woke up.... GUESS yes, tha'ts right 8:35... work at 9... getting picked up at 9:40. I was impressed. Yet I pulled myself together quite nicely... even tho I forgot my lock... but whatever. I really wish that we could wear running shoes or.. something like that, cuz my feet are killing me right now, very badly. Maybe I could get a doctors note or something like that... I know Dr. Chan would do something like that for me =)
I so desperatley want my computer... like not in January... not in December... not in November... NOW! I'm so sick of catering to everyone else's needs. But if I invest in one right, then I don't know how much money I'll have in December... not that I'm planning on spending thousands of dollars in California... but I'm sure I'll blow a fair chunk of it. I'm a Natural Born Shopper.. what can I say?
Holy hell, I needa cut my nails! And put hand lotion on, I cleaned the sink out, and scrubbed it with an SOS pad... now my hand feels like an SOS pad. Gruff.
Ciao for now.

You try to be good but sometimes your curiosity and rebellious nature get the best of you. It�s natural to wonder what life has in store for you but enjoy being your age while you still can. There�s plenty of time for experimentation as you get older.
What kind of friend am I?
26 - 32 points: All that can be said is that you make the perfect friend! You don�t do all the talking because you are just as busy listening. You�re willing to share your favorite sweater or give up a guy for your friend. That really says a lot about how honest and caring you are. Just keep being your fun lovable self
How high maintenance am I?
27 - 45 points: You aren�t HIGH maintenance but you do care about how people see you. You go with the flow most of the time and can adjust to situations. You will certainly try to make a good impression, but if something unexpected comes along it doesn�t send you into a tailspin. You like your brands and have your favorite things, but they don�t necessarily have to be the best or perfect all the time. You may be picky sometimes but not difficult. You probably prefer to have things your way (who doesn�t) but you don�t see it as everyone else�s job to agree with you and give you what you want.
Is my attitude holding me back?
18 - 29 points: You�ve got a happy medium going on here. You are confident in how you feel and easy to be around. You can shift gears when you need to and not look back. You are refreshing to be around and friends know that a day with you won�t usually turn ugly. You occasionally are uncomfortable with something and will let someone know, but in a way that doesn�t embarrass you or anyone who�s with you. This great attitude will take you far!
Am I a princess?
17 - 23 points: Compromising for the Better. You do a good job of balancing your wants and needs with other people�s wishes. Rather than routinely backing down or demanding that you always take the lead, you work with the people you care about to make a pleasant compromise that works towards what you both desire out of the situation. Showing that you�re a good sport while keeping pace with your individual preferences helps to make you well-rounded and a trusted friend or family member. When the glass is half full there are plenty of possibilities out there!
Am I green with envy?
17 - 23 points: Little Green Monster. You hate to be jealous of your friends but sometimes you can�t help yourself. As much as you try to be happy for others sometimes you lose control and the little green envy monster takes over. You are never proud of those moments when you stomp off and act like a spoiled brat so you try to limit them. At least you are aware of the problem so you can attempt to work on it. Try to remember that if you are happy for your friends they will be happy for you as well!

I had like.. THEE stupidest dream. Because we were talking about the date yesteray, making sure that it was actually the 28th... cuz Kim has been known to try and convince us otherwise. I somehow dreamt about the date. The first part was me at SJT, going to school. I was done school, but I went back to grade 9 I guess, cuz I was in Mr. Zimmermann's social class, and I remember walking down the hallway, and looking in the picture case and seeing a picture of who I thought was Derek (!?!?) in a hockey uniform, but turned out only to be someone who LOOKED like him. Drats! So then that whole school thing ended and.....
I was out in the middle of no where, by myself. It was like I was at a lake, camping, but there was no one else around, and I wasn't actually camping. The only thing I did was go to this little convinience store, and there was an old couple working there.. well I think they owned it... well that's besides the point.
So anywayz, then that part of the dream ends... and I"m guessing that it's the next day. (29th) So I'm with mom now, driving down what appears to be 127th street, on our way to the middle of nowhere place where I was before. And then I just blurt out. "So I'm actually 19 then?" and she goes "Yes!" I, and the rest of the world, completley forgot my birthday, which was the day before.. on the 28th... but the dream never mentioned if it was April or not... doesn't have to be.... cuz when I was young, I thought my birthday was on the 28th day of every month. So that could be what this dream is about. But anyways, we get to this middle of nowhere place, and that little store is still there, we walk up to it, and my gramma and grampa come to the door, with my grama saying "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!" The store is now their house.
And that was basically all of the dream. It was really cracked out, but actually quite cool, cuz, I liked the idea of being 19. I really want to be 19. It's so much better than 18, cuz you're not viewed as "just being legal" You've been legal for a year, and are WELL on your way to being an adult... ohhh yes. That would be kewl.
Ugh. I'm thirsty!!
(shoot the shit)
I just thought of this, as I was listening to +Walk On+. Today, the group got talking about music, and how someone went/was going to BSB concert, and then I mentioned that they were getting too old to be a boy band anymore. And then Steph said that she used to love them, like be obsessed. Then she said that Metallica was too old to play. I'm sorry, Metallica fucking rocks, to be playing for such a long time, and still have such a large fan base, and be ABLE to still rawk is amazing! And not once during there whole career have they sold out, which is something really rare nowadays.
And, THIS is the icing on the cake, I'm filled with rage here baby. They actually had the NERVE to say that U2 still shouldn't be playing... wtf? They're like the most incredibly band out there, every single thing that is produced from that band is a work of art... and his name in BONO not BONE-O. Like ppl say.. that really pisses me off. U2 does SOOO much for this world, they put their heart and soul into everything they do.. how can you say they shouldn't be around? Youngins' nowadays wouldn't know great music if it bit em in the ass then slapped them in the face.
If you think Bitchney Spearme is great music... there's some serious issues you gotta deal with before you can step out into the real world. Ohhhh yes.
Just thought I'd get that off my chest.... U2... not play... sheesh. Demented, I tell ya!
(shoot the shit)
Ya know, even tho I only fucked up like 2 things on the test tonight, I still feel like the dumbest person ever to walk to planet. And I really can't explain why. Maybe it's cuz of my age. Just about everyone else is 16, I'm 18... well Kim is 19... but I don't know how everyone did, so I can't really compare myself to them, now can I?!
All I know is that I feel sooooo bad for Steph. Like, seriously. She had everything planned out so good, we were ahead just about a day. She had ALL Friday free for testing, yet somehow, it worked out that 7 of 11 had to be tested at the same time, in 20 minutes, where the test should be half an hour. At least. She had to get the people she had already tested, and about 4 other SS workers to help her. Otherwise we'da been there till 12, at least. I know she was embarrased for crying infront of us, but I know that I would of done exactly the same thing. I know what it's like to be under that much pressure, have a small amount of time to accomplish an even bigger task. But no matter how much we reassured her that she did a great job, and that everything worked out fine, she was still so hard on herself. Pressing that she was going to be in so much trouble, cuz the way she executed it was so "unprofessional" That's all I can think about right now, is how upset she must still be.
I'm no good at comforting or reassuring people. I suck.
At least now I get two days of before I go back for another 5 days straight! I still gotta find me some black, polishable shoes, and some muchly fashionable Higher State clothing. Oh yes. How excited am I? Wetting myself, that's how much.
I'm also very very VERY hungry. My tummy is practically puching and screaming at me.
So I'm going to go get some food. Yes I am. Wish me luck! Ha ha ha.
(shoot the shit)
I'm so excited that tonight is my last day of training... but I'm gonna miss everyone! Even tho I'm gonna be working with them, it's just not going to be the same.
I know that we've got our individual tests today... I'm very nervous, even tho it's not pass/fail test. It's just that I don't know the codes... as well as I maybe should... altho it seems that everyone else doesn't either. That and the fact that I have absolutley no confindence in myself prolly doesn't help either.
I just finished watching the Friends where they were in Vegas, and Ross and Rachel got married. Omigod, I laughed my ass off! Friends can ALWAYS make me laugh, no matter what! "Why hello Mrs. Ross" "Ooooo, hello Mr. Rachel!" Ah, it's great! I can't wait till next Thursday so I can watch a new one! Woot.
I think after I get home from work tonight, I'm going to clean my room. Just go straight up there and clean. Cuz I can't even move around in it... I still haven't unpacked, and my laundry hasn't been put away for weeks, I'm thinking.
I think to much! Ohhh yes. God, it's so fricken cold... and I'm the only one to blame, cuz I said the other day, that I wanted a cloudy, cold day... and that's what i got today, and now my hands are gonna fall off from freezingness. Hah.
I'm going to go get a sweater, and brush my gnashers. That'd suck if I was talking to someone in the group with sammich stuck in my metal!!
(1 splat + shoot the shit)

Shite, now i can't really remember it. I know that it was good. Once again, it was about me being in love, and the guy actually loving me back. Fuck. I know that we met, and then he said that he had to go back somehwere. I wasn't sure if he liked me to, I thought maybe he was just being nice. I was flirting, and everything, and he was kind of responding. Then when I found out that he was going to be leaving, I got up the guts to ask him for his phone number and address. I was going to tell him because I thought he was a cool person. But then, as he was giving it to me, he was being really close to me, and giving off the impression that he "liked" me too. But I don't think he ever actually said that.
Tangent: We were in the old house, and decorting my room and Chris' room, adn I think Jill was there, but I got upset with her or something and kicked her out.
I said goodbye to my guy... whom when I first met was kind of short, and skinny, dark hair, dark eyes. Then, when I went to my new job in the next couple of days, he was there, watiting for me, saying that he worked there too. My job was cutting wood... I don't know what he was doing. But now, he wasn't short and skinny, he was taller, and bigger, but still looked the same. *odd*
And that's all I remember.
