Do you know how hard it is to.. [
March 30th, 2009 � 8:11pm
[ mood | blah ]

How hard it is to find that Perfect someone? Sure, it's tough. But lately I've been thinking a lot about relationships. I want someone to love and everything, but when I think I've found it, it doesn't work out. I think one of the reasons may be that I don't really know What True Love is. Sometimes I feel that I'm attracted to someone and sometimes we even end up dating, but then I get these feelings that I just don't want  a relationship. It makes me feel kinda trapped. Like, I have to devote all my attention to that ONE PERSON and no one else. Then I feel like the person is too clingy and wants me to call them all the time and I HATE talking on the phone to people like that. I want one of those casual relationships where you can both live your own lives and not worry about stuff all the time. Without worrying about "Oh. Well. Maybe I shouldn't hug this person because I'm dating so-and-so." or things along the line of that. It's a really confusing feeling. I almost wanna meet someone over the internet and try internet dating because I've seen so many furries doing that and theirs usually works out for a REALLY long time. And then they finally get to see each other and they're all happy and stuff. I want to be able to feel that. But at the same time, I feel like that's too far away and I would want someone to hold and love NOW. Like, I could drive and see them or something. I've only been in like, 2 serious relationships. One was with a girl that was way to clingy and jealous about me hanging out with people. And the 2nd was with a girl that really didn't do anything wrong. I just felt like she was letting me influence her life too much. She was even going to stay down here in SC and make her life Hell all over again rather than going back to Maryland! I told her before we started dating "Don't let me be the reason for you to move back down here." And throughout our relationship, I had a feeling I was the person holding her here with her family that she doesn't like, except for her mom and little brothers. And when we broke up, she was talking about how she was thinking about moving back to Maryland. She hates it here. But then she felt the same when she lived in Maryland before, so I really don't know.

Also, it's really hard to be able to find someone that's a furry. I REALLY wanna date another furry, but they're so rare around these parts. The last person I was in a relationship with (The girl from Maryland) didn't really care about furries either way (I don't mean that in a bad way). She thought they were cute and she asked me how FWA went after I got back and everything. I don't think she really understood it all and junk. Haha. But either way, she didn't frown upon it. But the 1st girl would've been like What the hell? And she would've thought of me as a freak. Yadda yadda yadda. Anywho, I just would like someone that also shares the same interests that are a big part of my life and hopefully a big part of theirs too. :)

That's about all I feel to write right now. There's a lot of other stuff in my head, but that's a pretty long entry anyways. I haven't updated in a while and probably need to more often. I wanna write a FWA Con report, but I'm too lazy and procrastinate too much. Haha.

My life is changing for the better. [
February 10th, 2009 � 12:06am
You ever have one of those moments where you just feel like your life is going wrong ALL the time? My life isn't EXACTLY like that, but things don't go my way very often.

This past week, I was accepted into a college. The only downside is it's a technical college, but it's a pretty good one.

I'll be attending Greenville Technical College in Greenville, SC starting this fall semester and I'll be majoring in business management and marketing. That's right, I'm going for a DOUBLE Major!

Before, I really wanted to be a veterinarian more than anything in my life. But, I had to make one of those adult decisions of "Could I? Funds?" You know, all that jazz. Turns out, we don't have enough money. I don't have the grades to get enough scholarships and not entirely sure if I'd have the grades to get into the colleges that offer it! There's no school in SC that you can go to to get an actual degree in Veterinary Services, so that means you'd have to pay out-of-state tuition, and they charge out the wazoo! So, I went with my second choice-Business Management.

No matter what you do in life, someone, somewhere will always need a manager. I'm gonna be that dude. I used to be assistant manager and was pretty good at it, so I think I'll do alright. And the classes are easier! Haha.

Anywho, Recently, I've been giving the whole dating scene another try. Me and this girl, Amanda are now dating. She's in college already. She's majoring in culinary Art! :D YUM.

She's Epileptic and loves animals too. She's moving back down here from Maryland. I've actually secretly liked her for a REALLY Long time and only about a year ago found out she liked me too, but I decided not to date her because of the long distance. So now that she's back down here to stay, we're dating. Yay us! Haha.

Anywho, I've got a Infectious Physiological Disease paper due on Infection Mononucleosis.

Oh. And I almost fell off the top step of a 12 Foot ladder into Rush hour traffic at work Saturday..But I'll talk about that later! :D

This is Amanda (Lol):

Update? Yupp. [

[ mood | cold ]

Yeah, so here's an update. :]

I had Exams last week and so far, I think I've failed all of them. I got a 52 on my Biology and a 65 on Government. So..Yeah. It's the dumbest thing ever to take exams one week after Winter break. Seriously. That's a one-week study period, cuz let's be serious, no one is gonna study over Winter Break.

I sent in a post to the Furry Weekend Atlanta group about finding someone else to room with me and my friends, and I've had 2 hits on it so far! :D

I hope I get more so I can pick the perfect person so I can have the perfect Con experience at FWA! :D

My Adventure with the SAT [
December 9th, 2008 � 5:40pm
This past Saturday I took the SAT. It was pretty much horrible. I was there from 6:45 until 2:30 taking it. 2 Bad things happened. I'll talk about them later.

First, I wake up at 5:55 AM to take a shower, because if I don't take a shower, I don't do good on ANYTHING. It's true. Then, I went to McDonalds and got a Southern Style Chicken Biscuit. Afterwards, driving on my way to my testing site, I listened to music that puts me in a good mood, because if you're not in a good mindset, you won't do good at all.

Well, after I arrive, I realize at about 5 minutes before the test starts, I FORGOT MY CALCULATOR. Oh God. You have NO clue how hard it is to do Cosign and Tangent and junk without a calculator. So, yeah. While everyone was double checking their work, I was rushing to even finish.

I think I ended up doing pretty well though.

But the worst thing is this:

You get 400 points for writing your name on the front of the test book. Well, I wrote Nick instead of Nicholas, because that's how I always write my name. Even on my checks and junk. So, because of that, I'll probably have 400 points taken off of my score.

I swear, if I get a 700, I'll punch someone. That would mean because of the name thing, I missed getting the Life Scholarship! D:

So, yeah. And now I take the ACT this Saturday. I'll make sure none of that stuff happens. Lol.

Well. [

[ mood | blah ]

Right now, I'm working on my research paper for English. Ugh.

It's really hard to find magazines or newspaper articles about Veterinarians! EVEN ONLINE! T_T

My Brain Hurts.

I might be quitting my job if I have this job at a local coffee place. It's a 20 cent pay decrease, same distance, and hopefully more hours. Plus, Free Coffee! That's always a plus. Haha.

Oh. And no Manager CONSTANTLY down your back like at Ingles. Damn grocery stores. One of the worst jobs ever! I like things being left up to me and being able to do it all by myself. Not to mention I'm not CONSTANTLY moving and all that jazz. Grocery Stores are hard work. They hired me to be a bagger, but I bag, stock, run a register, help out in the bakery, and the Deli, take Employees home and Dont get paid for it, AND half the time, I don't even bag any Groceries! Not to Mention, I mainly do Janitorial stuff like Trash and Bathrooms. *Shudder*

Oh. and I fill Milk and Block junk. AND get buggies. There's more stuff, but I don't really feel like naming all of it.

Anywho, hopefully I have this new job! :D

Reason For the Last Post [
August 27th, 2008 � 7:44pm
[ mood | contemplative ]


I'm not exactly sure if I've ever been in LOVE, Per Se, but I've had a few crushes. The longest relationship I've had was a few days over a year, but I'm not sure if I ever really LOVED her. I dunno, I'm just looking for the right person. It seems like all the right people are the ones that are taken, or you can't have. I want someone that can take me for who I am. I don't really want anyone super skinny, because skinny people make me sad. Haha. Just kidding, but all the skinny girls around here are SUPER skinny and gross. Haha.

I would love to have a girlfriend that's a furry, but that likely won't happen. =P

I just get really shy and it seems like it's harder to talk to them after we "Officially Start Going Out". And then, the "Love" just dies, and then when you break up, they hate you for some reason. And then come back and are like "I wish we would talk more like we used to." And it's that really awkwardness because of what they had told their friends about you while they were angry.

I would also love someone who would like my crazy and random friends too. =P

So..Yeah. Don't know where any of this came from, just felt like writing it. =P

Oh. And my job still sucks. =[

"I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Every moment spent with you is a moment of treasure."

"Don't Want To Miss a Thing." by Aerosmith

'Cause it's you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it's you and me and all other people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you

One of the things that I want to say just aren't coming out right
I'm tripping on words
You've got my head spinning
I don't know where to go from here."

"You And Me." by Lifehouse

When I see your smile,
Tears roll down my face.
I can't replace.
And now that I'm stronger, I have figured out,
How this world turns cold and it breaks through my soul.
And I know I'll find deep inside me,
I can be the one.

I will never let you fall.
I'll stand up with you forever.
I'll be there for you through it all.
Even if saving you sends me to heaven."

"Your Guardian Angel." by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

"That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me
and you'll never go
Stop breathing if
I don't see you anymore."

"Far Away." by Nickelback

Desperate for changing
Starving for truth
I'm closer to where I started
Chasing after you
I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you."

"Hanging By A Moment." by Lifehouse

Fuck Part 1. [
August 10th, 2008 � 11:22pm
[ mood | pissed off ]

First off, I'm feeling a little better, thanks to Jalysa (WingedHamHam making me a new ConBadge! =])

And Secondly, to the musical stylings of Parkway Drive and their song "Carrion" and Interstate I-85.

There's nothing like going 70-75 Down the Interstate at Night, weaving in and out of Traffic with this song Blaring into my ears. It was so loud, that when I got home, my ears popped.

I knew I had to drive for a while to calm down. It was driving me crazy, and I just needed to drive. It wasn't a Want, it was a NEED.
