Writer's Block: Parental Involvement [27 Jul 2009|01:55am]
Are you friends with your parents?


Definitely, at least my mom anyway. I feel like my mother is the only person I can always depend on and completely trust. She is also, I think, the only one I can be totally and wholly myself with. She has sacrificed so much for me and understands me better than anyone else out there. I feel like I can tell her next to everything and she offers me great advice on life in general. Also, she is an amazing cook and feeds me well whenever I'm home haha. I really don't know what I'd do without her.

My dad? He doesn't know me at all. Hell, he didn't even know how to properly spell my name until last year (my name is Melissa, he spelled it like "Malissa."). He gets really annoyed whenever I ask a favor from him and gets angry easily. He just doesn't want to be bothered...and what really upsets me is that he doesn't bother to get to know me. Sigh. Well, I know that regardless he loves me very much and always has my best interest in mind.

I used to think that people who don't like their parents were selfish, spoiled and unappreciative people...but I based that primarily on what I saw from my friends' relationships with their parents. Now, however, I realize that a lot of people have indifferent parents who simply don't care about the well-being of their children. That made me even more appreciative and feel unbelievably lucky to have parents who are so, so good to me.

Yes, when I was younger there were plenty of times when I hated them for being so hard on me...but now I realize that it was for my own good and they were just trying to bring out my full potential. Because of them, I live a rather fulfilling life and have my head screwed on right. They have provided me with so many opportunities and, as corny as it sounds, so much love.

I owe them fucking everything.

Writer's Block: You're a Winner! [14 Jun 2009|10:55pm]
Have you ever won a contest, drawing, or lottery? What was the prize?
Yeah, it was back in middle school, maybe in 8th grade? Our school would have these monthly baked sales and there was always a raffle. 

and finally, I WON. What did I win? A crushed bag of Wise Potato Chips.

I haven't wont anything since. What wonderful luck I have.

 I wanted to go to bed two hours ago but instead I'm going through my playlist from Freshman year of high school. Boy, Brand New never sounded better.

I discovered a place near my dorm that sells French Macarons...that actually taste good.

This is bad, but this addiction is too sweet (pun intended!) to pass up.

i came back today and i am at once reminded of the dreadfulness and depression that comes with college work - and the even more depressing pressure that comes with wanting to actually do well here. 

it sucks to be back. i can't wait for finals to be OVER.

i have two epic long essays due within the next two weeks and i have yet to start them.  

barely a month has gone by in school and i feel like everyone's already so involved and motivated. and yet, i'm simply bumming around. 

i don't want to do work. i just want to dress up and fawn over pretty clothes all day.

ps - and three weeks later i find out that the nyu ~mystery concert~ was broken social scene. fuck my life.

Summer Reading [04 Jun 2007|06:27pm]
So I'm trying to play it nerdcore this summer and I made a list of books that I've been wanting to read/needing to finish.



If you can recommend me any good books, please do!

Also, expect me to make a movie list sometime soon too.

"All right. Amélie, my girl. You don't have glass bones like me, you can knock against life. If you let this opportunity slip away, then, as time goes by, it's your heart that will become as dry and fragile as my bones." - Raymond Dufayel (Le Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain)

All my emotions for the past two days summed up by a quote from an imaginary character. nice.
