The Couch, Big Gay Party, and Greece
Last night after my final marketing class (thank God! although I am gonna miss the couch ::sigh::) Hmm...that comment probably begs some explanation. We found this really ghetto 70s couch in the bathroom in the Holcomb basement (which is quite scary...don't go down there alone!). There was a group of us that would go down there during our break and just sit on the couch because we didn't have anything better to do. Last night we took too long and Prof Wray met us in the hall looking for us as we were coming back from the couch haha We were plotting to take it, but couldn't figure out how to get it out of the bathroom. We think they might have assembled it in the bathroom (or perhaps built the building around it cuz it might be THAT old) So yeah, thats the infamous "couch"

Anyways...went to the big gay party at Lora's apt last night. She is moving to Greenwood this weekend, so it was a last big soiree. Also a last hoorah for me since I am leaving for three weeks. It was fun, I finally got to meet some people that I've been hearing about for ages (including Jeremy's friend Danny, Jeffrey-the PRIDE advisor, and Lora's Brandon...all three of which were fabulous!)

It was also good to see Jeremy, David West, Alexa, big Dave, Andy, TJ, Paul, and Lora of course.

No one really got very drunk, so nothing especially scandalous happened. Apparently Jeremy was still hurting from last week at David West's house.

After most of the people had left, Lora, Paul, Brandon, Brandon's partner (Greg, Craig...someone didn't introduce me

After most of the people had left, Lora, Paul, Brandon, Brandon's partner (Greg, Craig...someone didn't introduce me <ahem, Lora>) were all sitting there watching some comedy on DVD...it was pretty funny! Brandon and I were sharing a fairly yummy British import beer and chatting.

I also got an email from my aunt Irene (who is already over in Athens). She was like...so are you getting excited? I responded "um yeah, I've been telling everyone I know" We might be going to a qualifying women's soccer game between Greece & USA. There is also some talk of going to Crete to see Ellen (my cousin)'s apartment and because the game is in Heraklion (a city in Crete). She also mentioned possible daytrips from there to Santorini and Mykenos. I am getting way excited!! PS If anyone hasn't sent me their address, I am collecting them to send postcards.

Vogue: Strike a Pose
So we went to the Vogue last night for Retro Rewind. Unfortunately the DJ didn't get the memo because he played very little 80s music. Plus it was super crowded, and I didn't have very many pretty people to look at. Hannah's friend Meredith came down to visit from Wisconsin. I apologized profusely and assured her that the Vogue is usually more fun--but she said she had a good time nevertheless.

On a positive note, there was a hot guy there that was dancing near us (he had on this tight shirt so you could see his abs)...and I was thinking "Whoa, he is hot!" The way he was dancing indicated that he was most likely a member of the family, but I wasn't sure. I looked back later and saw him dancing with a guy that was in his group. That made me happy. Too bad I wasn't drunk or I probably would have made my way over there and danced with them.

For Craig: boysex, boysex, boysex (that's what you need to do in CA, and then tell me all about it!)

So I have one "close friend" at Butler to tell still (well him and my family). I've been hesistant to tell him because he is very flamboyant and feminine himself, so most people assume he is gay...so he is very uncomfortable with the whole situation. He is fairly relgious, and we've discussed before how he "doesn't approve of it" blah blah blah

Last weekend we went to Talbott Street on Friday night and to Celebrity on Saturday. My friend that went with us was telling him about the weekend and he was like..."I would NEVER go to a gaybar!" He talked about how uncomfortable he feels around gay people, and how he wouldnt want to get hit on. I guess talking about the drag shows was what initially brought this on...he said he was even more happy that he wasn't there for that. She went off on him about being narrow-minded and stuff. She said by the end of the conversation, she was just staring at him in disbelief of his ignorance.

Ugh for hiding behind religion and Republicanism...thank goodness not all Republicans are like that!

On the upside, the other roommate (my former roommate from the dorms) said he is interested in maybe going with us next time we go to a gay bar. This is huge because he doesn't even go out...it made me so happy to hear that!

Excited, but stressed
So the countdown to Greece is on! Less than a week now, and I have so much to do! Between finishing all three classes, taking finals, and Circle K and BUSF stuff. One way or another, my flight to Athens via Paris leaves on Monday afternoon from Cincinnati!

Circle K Weekend
Well I had a great weekend! It was packed full of Circle K stuff, but it was good to see everyone again and such. Friday night until Sunday morning we were at Stephen's house (Stephen, Megan, and I slept together both nights...ow ow!) We got lots of stuff done, but still have a long way to go for the year. It's exciting though!

Tonight I hung out with Amy and got to see her new apartment down on the canal. She is living with her brother, and it's 100x nicer than her last apt, so that is cool. Plus it is so pretty down there. I think I might like to live in that area, perhaps? We also went to PF Chang's (Amber, I am sure you are jealous!) and had martinis which were good, and of course, lettuce wraps. Anyways it was good to see her, and then we watched Cocktail and played Mario Kart on N64!

This is the last week for summer school! Hooray...I am not sad in the least bit. It also means that I am going to Greece (my plane leave a week from tomorrow...omg) I have a LOT of stuff to get done this week before I can leave. It is going to be so much fun though, I am way excited about it!

Yesterday's Events...
Yesterday was a fun day. I went for a picnic with James on campus. He brought stuff he had bought from Trader Joes...so we had some yummy cheese & crackers, pasta salad, brownies, and strawberries. He is such a nice guy and fun to talk to. Even though he is like twice my age, we have similar interests and experiences, so we always seem to have lots to talk about!

Last night after my marketing test (ugh), I went over to David West's house for a big gay party! It was a lot of fun. Rich, Candace, Derek, Jeremy, Lora, Big Dave, Alexa, Andy, and Josh were there. It was a pretty low key affair but we had a lot of fun. We were all drinking although I didn't drink that much. We just had a good time singing to Cher (multiple chergasms) and getting massaged by Candace (woohoo it was great!). I ended up taking Candace and Rich home around 3:30, and crawled in my bed around 4AM. Let me tell you that 6:45 came VERY quickly this morning. I am actually doing okay right now, but I am sure it will catch up to me later this evening.

I have Circle K stuff ALL weekend. We have a lot of stuff to go over and get through, but it will be fun. We haven't been together for a few weeks. Anywho, I guess I should be doing something for the company since I am on the clock ;) Ciao!

This is really entertaining, from 12reasons.com...
The Top 12 Reasons Why Gay Marriage Will Ruin America as We Know It
1. Homosexuality is not natural, much like eyeglasses, polyester, and birth control are not natural.

2. Heterosexual marriages are valid because they produce children. Infertile couples and old people cannot get legally married because the world needs more children.

3. Obviously gay parents will raise gay children because straight parents only raise straight children.

4. Straight marriage will be less meaningful, since Britney Spears's 55-hour just-for-fun marriage was meaningful.

5. Heterosexual marriage has been around for a long time, and it hasn't changed at all: women are property, Blacks can't marry Whites, and divorce is illegal.

6. Gay marriage should be decided by the people, not the courts, because the majority-elected legislatures, not courts, have historically protected the rights of minorities.

7. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are always imposed on the entire country. That's why we only have one religion in America.

8. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people makes you tall.

9. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage license.

10. Children can never succeed without both male and female role models at home. That's why single parents are forbidden to raise children.

11. Gay marriage will change the foundation of society. Heterosexual marriage has been around for a long time, and we could never adapt to new social norms because we haven't adapted to cars or longer lifespans.

12. Civil unions, providing most of the same benefits as marriage with a different name are better, because a "separate but equal" institution is always constitutional. Separate schools for African-Americans worked just as well as separate marriages will for gays & lesbians.

Under a rock...
Hey everyone-

I think I have been hiding under a rock lately...I haven't posted in a few weeks.

This weekend was crazy fun! It was a big gay weekend which included a visit from Scott (best friend from high school...just got back from Paris), Talbott Street, and Celebrity.

Before that, I should talk about last weekend's trip to Celebrity though! Rich and I went in my car, Jeremy, "straight" Josh, Ricky and some 16 year old girl were in Jeremy's car, then 2 crazy, hot lesbians and a friend of Jeremy's named TJ were in another car. Big line of cars coming down the highway heading for the club! Rich and I were grooving to a club mix cd of techno music as well as Cher and Madonna (2 absolute necessities!)

I was so confused by Josh the whole night long. He was a nice guy, but I just didn't understand why a straight guy would want to go to a gay club, but he seemed to be enjoying himself. He even danced with us toward the end of the night (after some liquid courage).

All of us had a lot of fun! The best part was that we got to see my fav drag queen do the "Milkshake Song" routine again. She comes out on rollerskates, and it is so hot!!

Okay, this weekend...went to Talbott Street on Friday night (one of the last big hoorahs with Craig, which makes me sad). We had a good time, there was a big group of us. Although it wasn't especially crowded in the club (I have heard that Saturday night is better there). I got groped by this like 30 year old with no shirt on. He was okay, but I just wasn't really in the mood.

Saturday during the day I went to a Kiwanis function with Hannah, Susan, and Tara. We were working the drive through for a fish fry, it was a lot of fun! Then we went to visit Jeremy at the snow shack in Mooresville (since we were on the southside already) and had fabulous snow cones.

On to Celebrity Saturday night...we made a whole bunch of pit stops along the way to collect people. Craig, Hannah, and I started at my house. We then drove to New Castle where we met TJ and Jeremy (Paul also came and met us there). Jeremy hops into our car (cuz he likes us better!) and then we head down the highway nearly to Richmond and pick up Elisabeth. She had been over there for a redneck family wedding. Finally all of us are together and we make it to the club.

We had fun, it was a little different than usual though. Some people were getting on my nerves, so that was frustrating. The shows were pretty good. There was one where a guy was stripping and had this huge padded g-string. He was cute, but when people pulled on his g-string to put in dollars, the whole thing moved (takes away from the illusion).

After we got back, we took Amber to the airport. LOL I think its a great story that we stayed up all night long at the club and then came back to town and took her to the airport for her 6AM flight. She made it on time and is now in New York visiting her dad.

Last night was the QAF season finale (not that any of you would be surprised to hear this). It was excellent! Craig and I went with Jeremy over to one of his friends houses to watch it. It was the couple that got married a few weeks ago, and Lora and Jeremy went to their wedding. It turns out that I knew one of the guys (Eric) who works in catering at Butler and has catered events for me before. It was funny when I walked in and he was like "I know you!"

Anyways, I guess that's about it. I had better get back to work I suppose...

Recent Happenings
Well nothing too scandalous to report... I went to St Louis for ICON (Circle K International Convention) and had a fabulous time! I was super busy though because I am a district officer (I am in charge of the budget for the entire Indiana Circle K!) and I was presenting 2 workshops as well. It was a lot of fun though, got to hang out with my awesome INCKI friends. It was last year at ICON that I met Derek...so good things definitely come from ICON!!

Now I am just trying to make up all the schoolwork I missed while I was gone. I made up a test that I missed this morning, and tomorrow I have another test (it was actually scheduled for tomorrow). Summer school just blows, thats all I have to say.

Also I have been working on amassing a great deal of music on my laptop. I am transferring it off of my computer, downloading more, and getting some files from Craig's computer (hooray for file sharing through AIM). If anyone would like to let me share their MP3s, let me know!

Now I have to go to Art History class and be bored out of my mind while our professor drones on about elementary concepts of art appreciation and history, both of which will most likely insult my intelligence. Too bad there isn't an Advanced AH class that Craig and I can take (we sit in the back and laugh at the dumb things our professor says). We had intended to take an Intro to Theatre: Musical Theatre class, but we were the only two that signed up for it and they had to cancel it. Damned summer school students! Oh well, what can you do?

Funtimes Weekend...
Yay it was a good weekend! Spent the majority of the weekend with Derek and Rich. On Friday, we went to see the new Michael Moore movie entitled "Fahrenheit 9/11" It was good, I usually enjoy with what Moore has to say. I actually liked "Bowling for Columbine" better but this one was good too. Perhaps I am more passionate about gun control, who knows? Anyways, Moore just basically made fun of Bush for the entire movie and pointed out all the silly coincidences between Al-Quada, the Bush family, Saddam Hussein, other Republicans, etc. It played to an almost packed theatre, and they had it in the huge theatre. In fact there was a huge line to get in to see it. Lots of crazy liberals! hehe

Saturday I got up and went rollerblading with Craig on the Monon. It was a good time. We went like 25 miles or something like that...all the way from Broad Ripple to the end of the trail which is up past Carmel. It was a great workout. Then we went and got a shaved ice in BR, which was excellent! We went into a funky home furnishings store in BR called the Bungalow, and who is working there? Beth Hospodarsky! It was so funny to see her. We chatted for about 20 minutes catching up and reminescing about old times. That is a neat store btw, I had never been in there before.

After that I went shopping with Rich, Derek, and Candace. We went to Castleton because apparently they had never taken Rich there. (Hun, you need to hang out with me more often...I frequent the fancy, expensive places!) We didn't really buy that much stuff, although we all bought stuff at Bath & Body Works because they are having their "Big Semi-Annual Sale." So we all got stuff for way cheap. I perhaps most excited about a candle that I got that makes my room smell fabulous! Also got a cucumber melon scented air freshner for the car.

Saturday night we went back to my house to play drunken Guesstures! It was so much fun. Derek got really drunk, so we got to point and laugh at him for most of the night. He hardly ever drinks so after about 4 of my apple martinis (yummy) and some Stoli Raspberry/Sierra Mists, he was good to go. Rich and Candace had to walk him to the car, and apparently on the way home, they had to stop at a ghetto gas station so that he could pee. I can only imagine what that car ride was like...I am sure he was a chatterbox because he was awfully chatty before he left my house. Rich also said that he came out of the bathroom to find Derek almost falling out of bed, so he had to catch him and push him back onto his mattress. Derek doesn't remember this of course. Those are the best kind of drunken stories...when someone else has to tell you about things you did ;)

Tonight I went over for pizza and DVD Trivial Pursuit. It was fun, Candace ended up winning because we all got tired and said...whoever gets the next question wins, and it was her. Now I am home and I have to do some homework. I am leaving for ICON on Wednesday and will be in St Louis for the rest of the week. Then back for Craig's big 4th of July soiree.

Well I am no longer a "Metro Virgin" because I went to the Metro tonight with an old acquaintance. I should say friend but we had never hung out, we just kinda knew each other from this and that. Anyways, his name is Eric and we met each other freshman year at Butler. He ended up living with the RA who was next to our unit, so we saw him a lot. I had a class with him, and he was in Circle K. Just an all around nice guy. We were just never in the same circles I guess, although we would always say hello and make small talk when we saw each other.

Anyways, a few weeks ago I saw him at the Vogue. He was with some other BU people, so we were all dancing. I felt bad because I ignored him a bit because I was with some people that didn't officially know about me. So I emailed him after that and said I was sorry for ignoring him and explained the situation. He said that he understood and it was cool. We exchanged AIM names and cell phone numbers, so we started chatting online and stuff.

I told him that I had not been to any of the gay bars in Indy, and that I would like to go with him sometime. Well tonight was the night. He and I went down to the Metro, and had a lovely evening. We were just chatting away like we've known each other forever. He was telling me about his boyfriend (who sounds fabulous!) and I was telling him about my "process."

He is a really nice guy, it was a great evening. Yay for fun people! I am really blessed to be surrounded by all these wonderful people!! Love ya'll...

'Da Club...
It's 1:30, and I just woke up...of course I went to bed at 6:30, so that probably makes a little more sense now!

Went to Celebrity in Dayton last night with Jeremy, Rich, big Dave (woohoo a straighty), and Lora (I guess she is straight too). It was a lot of fun!! We didn't leave until late because we had to wait for Jeremy to close the snoshak and Big Dave to get off work, but we got to spend plenty of time there.

We saw one show, and Big Dave liked it a lot I think...although some of the acts were kinda scary. I was curious to see how he would react, but he seemed okay with it. He claimed on the way there that he was just gonna sit and watch, but we drug him onto the dance floor with us!

We left the club at like 2:30 our time, 3:30 there. Then we went to Steak n Shake, and had breakfast/dinner. We had already had shakes from earlier in the evening (while waiting for Big Dave), so most of us got food this time. Our waitress was funny...she came over and was like, do you mind if I sit down? So she said at the table next to us and took our order. We were the only ones in there, aside from a couple on the other side of the restaurant. There was a Clay Aiken-look alike working the counter that we kept noticing, he was pretty friendly to us ;)

Anyways, got back to our cars and I got home to crawl in bed around 6:30. Goodtimes had by all!

1:01 am
I finished all my Stats hw (I was 2 assignments behind because I was still catching up from missing class) and now am going to bed, I am going to study for my final in the morning. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I did well on the last exam, so I am going into the final with a 93 in the class, which is pretty comforting.

Hmm...what else? I picked up pictures from my trip out west! Hooray, there are some pretty good ones in there. I also got the People Magazine 50 Hottest Bachelors, so we will see what they have to offer there! We are going back to Celebrity in Dayton tomorrow night, so that should be a lot of fun.

Hope everyone had a more exciting Friday night than Statistics...ciao!

Vogue and Naked Boys Singing
It's been an eventful past few days! Wednesday night we went to the Vogue to celebrate Jon's 21st Birthday...only one problem, they wouldn't let him in :( They gave him some bs story about how they use business days (he turned 21 at midnight Wed night). We were already inside when all of this went down (we got there around 11), so we just ended up staying. I think they went to Landsharks, hopefully they got in over there. The Vogue was a good time! Amber and I got pretty silly, and Craig was driving. Mark and Hannah met us there too. The 5 of us had a good time...the Vogue on Wednesday nights is always fun times--hooray 80s music! We came back to the duplex and ordered pizza because Amber wasn't quite ready to drive home. So the pizza came and we chowed down, then everyone left around 2:30 or so. I still managed to make it to work around 8:15, but I was pretty tired when I first got there.

Yesterday--went to see "Naked Boys Singing" at the Phoenix Theatre with Derek, Rich, Caleb, Christian, Jill, Greg, and some other kid I didn't know named Justin I think? It was excellent! Most of the songs were funny, but there were some serious ones too. We all had a good time (Greg and Justin? were pretty freaked out--still not quite sure why they went in the first place?!). Afterwards we went to some local Mexican place near UINDY, which was pretty tasty. Then we went back to UINDY to hang out. We watched "But I'm a Cheerleader" which was hysterical! Then we ended up goofing off and chatting for a long time. Everyone left one by one and then I ended up talking to Rich and Caleb until like 3AM! I climbed into bed around 3:45, and set the alarm for 6:45. I still got here around 8:15 this morning though, hooray for operating on 3 hours of sleep!

Tonight I have to do Stats homework--hooray, and study for my final (12:30-2:30 tomorrow). Then I will be finished with that class, thank goodness (assuming I pass, I guess).

I guess I should go find something work-related to do since I am on the clock ;)

How to make a anw_wanderlust

Layer ingredientes in a shot glass. Add a little curiosity if desired!
11:10 am
So my car wouldn't start yesterday when I tried to come to work. It was the first time this had ever happened to me. Good thing I have AAA, so I ended up calling them and they came to jump start it for me. I was able to eat lunch and watch a great movie on Lifetime in the meantime, waiting for the guy to get there. Luckily my car has been okay since that little episode, but I will probably get the battery replaced sometime in the near future. Perhaps one of these days I should learn something about cars?

Also my parents ended up getting stuck in Chicago for 9 hours on their way home yesterday! They had to fly through San Jose Monday morning in order to use their free tickets. Apparently there was some bad weather around O'Hare, and they ultimately had to go to Midway and buy Southwest tickets to get home. My little brother was telling me about this online last night, I haven't called my parents yet. I am sure they were all less than pleasant to be around ;) Thank goodness for flying to Indy on Sunday afternoon...

1:09 am
Well I just got back from a week of vacation! It was wonderful. We went to San Francisco, Napa Valley (Wine Country), Lake Tahoe, and Reno all in the course of 8 days. I went with my parents, little brother, favorite aunt and uncle, and 3 cousins. Oh and my uncle's mom went too.

SF was wonderful! Slightly less of a homo-mecca than I was expecting. Aside from a few rainbow flags, it was really just like any other city I have visited. Perhaps if we had gone to Castro St (that is right, isnt it?), it would have given us a different impression, but oh well. We had a great time! Went to Alcatraz (its pretty creepy walking those corridors and into the cells...thinking about the people that were once there). Hit up Fisherman's Wharf & Pier 39, the Golden Gate bridge, dinner in Sausalito (sp?), Golden Gate Park, cable car ride, Ghiradelli Square (omg the chocolate!), Union Square (excellent shopping), and Muir Woods (National Park with incredibly redwood trees).

We also met up with some friends of the family, so it was good to see them. We hadn't seen them since last summer, and I had never been to SF so they showed us around a bit (my mom and brother went about 5 years ago). The next destination was the Napa Valley/Wine Country! We ended up stopping at about 4 vinyards and getting samples of their wine. We went to Robert Mondavi, V. Sattui, Chandon, amd Beaulieu. We got a tour at the Chandon place (they actually make sparkling wine=champagne there) which was neat to see the process. We ate lunch at the Sattui place, which was fun because we got to buy fresh meat, cheese, and have a bottle of their wine. That was a nice relaxed lunch, they had little picnic areas for us to enjoy our food and drink.

That night we spent in Napa, CA which is a cute little town with a traditional little downtown area that we walked around a bit. Although it seems that they roll up the sidewalks at night because it was pretty quiet in the town square area after about 8PM or so. We stayed at a cute little B&B type place with only 21 rooms. It was called the Elm House Inn.

Then we went to Lake Tahoe. Tahoe was awesome! It is so beautiful! You guys really must go, its amazing. The first day we took one of those sightseeing cruises out on the lake, which was pretty fun. We had lunch and drinks, and just enjoyed the sights. We got to hear lots of interesting/useless facts. For example, you could take the water of Lake Tahoe and cover the entire state of California with 14 inches of water. Or the fact that the water in Tahoe could supply the US with their water for 5 years. It is 1600 feet deep at the deepest point. Okay, enough of that.

We went out to a place called Emerald Bay, which was really pretty. It had this big house/castle thing that someone had built in the 60s to entertain guests (what a place to bring them!) The water was pretty cold! My little brother and I rented a jetski and we ended up flipping over when I tried to do a 360 too soon, and we both ended up in the icy water (its supposedly 55 degrees at the surface). Here is a disturbing image for you: me in a wetsuit (it was the first time I had worn one)!

At Tahoe, we stayed at a Caesar's which was fun, but I ended up losing a lot of money. Oh well, we still had a good time. Another cool thing we did there was ride a gondola up to the top of a mountain so that you can see the entire lake and the mountains around it. It was truly breath-taking.

Tahoe is obviously a huge ski town, and we were kinda there in the off-season but it is still a gorgeous place to visit if you are ever out that way.

From there we went to Reno, which was pretty ghetto really. After having been to Vegas so many times, Reno is just dumpy. I guess if you lived in the area and didn't want to fly to LV, Reno would suffice for your gambling needs but I wouldn't fly across the country just to go to Reno. I am glad we went however so that now I can say I have been there and also so that we were able to see why we should continue going to Vegas (eliminate any shred of doubt). Most of the hotel/casinos there were fairly large, ours even had a 50 lane bowling alley inside it. The downtown area was interesting, we drove down there because our hotel (Reno Hilton) was a bit off the "strip" Oh well, we got our obligatory tourist shot with the infamous "Reno: The Biggest Little City in the World" sign, so its all good.

Hard to believe that I woke up in the Reno Hilton this morning and now I am back in Indianapolis at my duplex, traveling is wierd like that I guess.

Well this week will have me catching up on my Statistics class (I missed 2 classes and an exam last week) and then starting my new classes next week (I can't believe my first summer classes are almost over!)
1:03 am
Jeremy's B-day Party
It has been way too long since I have posted anything! I am going to have 2 separate entries here.

2 weeks ago, I had an informal "gathering" at the duplex for Jeremy's birthday. It was tons of fun because we had 3 queers, 2 lesbians, and 4 straight people! Factor in lots of alcohol and it was an all around good time.

Jeremy ended up having SO much fun that he prayed to the porcelein gods that night. Oh well, you only turn 20 once, right?

I was busy making martinis and drinks for everyone--btw, Zach loves my apple martinis! Haha... Big Dave was uber-sober that night because he had to drive home, and so was Alexa. We still had a good time hanging out though. We went from watching baseball to Moulin Rouge, had pizza delivered (I think I said something obscene to the delivery man in my drunken state), let the guests pee outside, and had a few people stay until the next morning.

All around good times, hopefully the first of many soirees at the duplex!

Virgin Entry...
Hello everyone!

After months of reading other people's live journal, I have decided to get one of my own. My username is kinda lame, but I thought it was okay. After all, I am an Accounting major, you know ;)

Hmm...what to say? I had an awesome weekend! Went to "Celebrity" which is a dance club/drag show theatre in Dayton. It was SO much fun. You have got to check it out.

Things are going good. Doing the summer school thing right now. Had an exam tonight in my night Stats class. Going to Las Vegas on Friday! Woohoo, I am so excited. One of my classes is over with on Thursday of this week (we just started reading a book, and we have to write a paper for Thursday).

So yeah, I am doing laundry right now, and I am washing my sheets so I can't go to bed until they are finished ;) I guess I should have started earlier.

Hopefully this is the first post of many!
