Excuse the language, but... )

I have a presentation today for, uhm, said teacher. And as of now, I really don't care about it. I'm tired of stressing over something only to have teachers talk bad about your groups project behind your back anyway (even though it's going to BLOW HER MIND).

Lets show some professionalism, shall we?

Happy OMFGGREEN Day! :]
Who's drinking beer tonight~?

I think it's odd how this is the second year in a row that I've had an Irish boyfriend on St. Patty's Day. And, of course, they make a big deal about it. Not that I mind, I just think it's interesting.

I started my morning off with a cup of green tea. Not that the tea actually looked green, but I'm saying that it still counts.

Today will be my only relaxing day this week.. I only have a simple project presentation to do, not formal or anything, and then that's all.
Tomorrow I have another simple presentation, but then I have a formal presentation at 1.
Wednesday I have a final, then another formal presentation.
Thursday I have a final.
And Friday I've driving the long road home for spring break.
Wish me luck!

A little color/costume folklore.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend

Found this on a fashion psychology site.. thought it was interesting.

There's a little rhyme that's part of costume shop folklore:
Baste in black--it will be back
baste in green--it won't be seen
baste in red--better to be dead
baste in white--always right
There's variations of course.
The "it will be back" means it will come back to the shop for alterations or repairs or something.
"It won't be seen" means that that costume will be cut from the show so the public will never see it.
Basically basting is best in white because some colored dyes are fugitive and will mark the fabric they are basted with, particularly red.

I went to the tanning bed today, got a little pink in some places but otherwise I look okay.

Source Book is officially done, turned in, graded, and over with! Now I want to smack my teacher across the head with it. I did fairly well, overall, and I'm still convinced that its just because shes a horrible teacher. She said that in order to maintain my A- in the class, I would need to make 145/150 on the final exam next week.
Looks like I'll be making a B.
Her exams are hard as shit.

Next Thursday is officially our last day of classes for this quarter. I'm relieved. Next quarter won't be easy, either, since it's mostly all business classes, along with a Textiles class with the same horrible teacher I have now.

Getting ready to go to class in a few, but a quick update.

My dad came to visit me this weekend. We didn't really do much other than go look at stores and go out to eat, but either way it was fun. I wanted him to meet Adam, but Adam didn't come back in time. He got back quite late, actually, around 10 or 11.

Once I'm done with these two weeks, I'll be fantastic. Finals will be over and I'll have my spring break.

Hope everyone else is doing well!

Beating up the wrong guy.

I need to look up what rape in a dream means. Lets say I spent most of the morning thinking, unpleasantly, about what happened in my dreams last night. I probably don't need to say who was in the dream, but for the record it was James. Of flipping course.

Adam is feeling quite down today. He said he's afraid of losing me. He's not, of course. I would normally tell him about any upsetting dreams I have, but due to the circumstances of how he's feeling and what my dream consisted of, I don't think I will.

I was at school till 1:30 am working on schoolwork and I'm still not done. My dad is coming into town tomorrow through Sunday, so I won't get a chance to work on it till Monday. How unfortunately stressful. :\

Count on me to be an idiot and not think twice about my medicine.
Ugh. I hate myself sometimes.

So, I'm supposed to take this really powerful antibiotic, Cipro, twice a day. It's 500 MG a pill. I missed last nights dose, so I figured I would just take two this morning. WRONG. Within half an hour, I was vomiting and shaking and couldn't even stand up straight. So, I call my mom, since she's taken it before, and she said that I should call the pharmacist to see if I need to go to an emergcy room. After no luck with the pharmacy, I call a poison control center and eventually get some help.

I'll be okay, but my stomach is in a lot of pain.

I missed class last week to go to the doctor to get this medication, and now I'm going to miss class this week because my dumbass OD'd on the medication.

I have been in so much pain today... it's ridiculous. My kidney infection came back, or actually, never quite went away, and it hurts way worse than before. I had to miss class today and go to the doctor. He gave me some very strong antiboitics, but no good meds for the pain, which is what I WANT, because holy shit this fucking hurts.

I ended up having to take some downer cough syrup that I had left over (for emergencies only) just to get rid of the pain. I don't feel high, but the pain is mostly gone. I don't have a lot of cough syrup left, though, and only one downer pill. Hopefully the pain goes away quick enough I won't have to use them.

Other than that, my weekend was fantastic. The party was amazing, and Adam and I grew really close. I can see this turning into love. I don't want to sound childish when I say it, but I'm serious. I like that idea, but at the same time.. he'll be leaving within a year or two. I can't leave, I still have school. I don't want to think about it.

I don't know how I'm going to make it to class tomorrow, but I will somehow.

These past two weeks have been crazy. Craaazy! I've been at school nonstop to work on my fashion projects. I think they came out pretty well, though. The one, I could've done better, because I only made a 91, which at my school is a B+. Hopefully my next one, the Style Guide, which I've been slaving over in InDesign will be better. The only thing wrong with it is that when I had it binded at Kinko's, the binding went through some text. Ugh. I should've realized that would happen earlier.

I've been having a struggle with my Pharmacy, too. I called them Monday to fax my Doctors Office in New Bern so I could get my birth control filled. They didn't do it, and since I'm going out to town tomorrow and need it by Sunday, there's no telling when I'll get it. When I called a few minutes ago, though, they seemed to be on their game again. Hopefully I can either get it tomorrow before I leave, or I can come back early on Saturday or Sunday and get it.

I'm going to Asheville with Adam tomorrow to see Dead Meadow. It's a two and a half hour drive, so we'll have to leave directly after my class ends at 3, though hopefully I'll be out by 2:30. I just want to beat the traffic, you know? Then, after the show on Thursday, I'll be doing most of the driving back to his house in the Mountains, since he will no doubt be somewhat drunk. I'll drive long enough so that he can at least sober up, then maybe when we get closer he can take over. It'll be really late/early morning, either way. Wish us lots of luck on that.

My kidney infection seems to be all cleared up. When I told my mom today, she said something really kind of funny. She asked if I was aware that most anti-biotics lower the effectiveness of Birth Control, so I would need to use... other means of protection. It was just funny because her and I don't ever talk about that, and we've never talked about if I was having sex or not. I told her I knew, though, and that I had finished the anti-biotics and everything was fine.

Other than that, not a whole lot else has been going on. I have to go back to school at 12:30 for my advising appointment for classes next quarter, and then I have class at 1.

Hope everyone else is doing well. :]

I went to the doctor. Yeah, I don't have a full on Kidney Infection, but it's in the workings and he said it was good that I went to the doctor when I did, or else it would've gotten a lot worse. I'm so bad at technical terms, but something that was supposed to be at a level 0 was at a level 500, so that was very bad. He gave me antibiotics to take, though, and said that if the pain gets a lot worse to come back.

Other than that, not a lot has been going on. I've literally spent every day at school for the past week and a half to finish up schoolwork. Still not completely done, but now I shouldn't be as busy as I was.

Hope everyone else is doing well. Everyone talking about Animazement has me really eager about it, I soooo hope I can go.

Kidney infections?

Apparently I have one, but I haven't gone to the doctor yet. My mom said she's been hospitalized a couple of times for one and is urging me to go asap. I don't know when I'll have the time, though, with all my classes and schoolwork, though.

I didn't expect myself to be this moody today.
I went from productive, successful, slightly-optimistic feeling to worried, self-loating, and almost harmful behavior.

All from thinking about drugs. Fuck. I wish Adam hadn't told me about the hydrocodon his uncle gave him. Just because he can take pills and no get addicted doesn't mean that I can. I'm trying to stay off, recover from getting caught, and just when I'm getting to where I don't want one every day, he tells me this.
and doesn't even offer it to split it with me, which I don't know if I should feel hurt about or not.

Then I got to thinking about how all these people I went to high school with must look at me so differently since I "changed". Yeah, I fucked up, I made some mistakes and wrong choices. I was druggie Donna for a little while, but I was still Donna. And now I'm Donna, and... well. It's hard to be Donna sometimes.

I just want to go to sleep.

So, it was like 75 degrees here today. In FEBRUARY, wtf. With weather like this, it's no wonder I shake worse than a chihuahua when it's cold. Jeez.

Today went well. I got to see Adam after class, which was joyful. I treated us to Hershey's ice cream and then we went to a park. I hadn't had Hershey's ice cream in so long, and it reminded me of how GOOD it is! Oh god, it's a good thing I'm poor, or I'd be at the store all the time just eating it.

I have some homework to do tonight. Ugh. I might put it off, it's not due till 1 PM tomorrow anyway.

Adam was telling me today that he saw this chick, Fernanda, who I don't really like. He said she was flirting with him a little yesterday, and then Mario came up and she started flirting with him. I'm not surprised (and really don't care) about her flirting with Mario, since she did that even when we were dating, but Adam? Not cool. I might've actually gotten jealous this time. Oh my.

I already ate, but I'm still hungry. Arrh. I really need to go to the grocery store, but Amy is asleep, and it would be rude if I went without her, since she needs groceries too. I wanted to go early, though, before the after-church rush. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to wait.
Maybe I'll just wait till tomorrow.

People kept calling me last night after I had gone to bed. It made me feel pretty lame that everyone else was out doing stuff, and I was asleep. I really have no life on the weekends. It's all homework, homework, homework.

Hmm, I'm having a hard time finding good quality images of costume design illustrations. I need 10 images for my flash project, and I'd love to use the images in 50 Costumes/50 Designers but I don't know how to acquire them.

I'll keep searching, but in the meantime, if anyone knows a good site for any kind of fashion illustrations, could you please let me know? :]

And since my entries have been pretty boring as of late, here's some fun photos. )

Oh! And this, because oh god, it's funny.

If you haven't read, or thought about reading Skinny Bitch, you should. It's amazing, hands down.

It's changed my who perspective on food. Now you'll think two, three, four times about what you're putting in your body. It's very helpful.

You can look at it on Amazon or the offical website.


Fucking dreams.

Okay, these Ex-boyfriend dreams are just getting out of hand.

Now I've had two about Mario. I don't understand what my subconscious is trying to tell me. I mean, Adam and I aren't officially dating or anything, he made that pretty clear last night, but I also really enjoy being with him. I had a great time last night, and for a while it almost seemed as cute as a chick flick.

So WHY can't I get these people out of my dreams?

Adam keeps saying that if someone from my past were to come back and apologize, and ask for me back, I would go to them. This annoys me because it's not necessarily true. And would never happen. But the more he keeps saying it, and the more I keep having these dreams, I'm beginning to wonder.

I finished the first section of my source book, finally. It's due Wednesday, so either Monday or Tuesday I guess I'll get it printed at school. It looks pretty bland to me, but it's only the first section. It'll get more interesting as I go on.

I still have a paper to write for English on Jane Austen. Hmm. I'm procrastinating hardcore on that one because it's only supposed to be two pages. I'm used to having to write five or six page papers, so this will be a piece of old fashioned jam cake.

Essan called me last night around midnight, crying. We were on the phone for almost an hour. I think she's doing better now, but I hope she calls again if she needs to. Adam called today saying how hard it was to find a job in Charlotte (I know!), and how all he does on weekends is argue with his parents, so he's going to stop going home.

Amy still hasn't woken up yet. It's almost five.. I don't know how she can stand to have 8 o clock classes if she sleeps in this late.
