My goodness. Last night was just a night full of bad dreams. Not the "Oh god there's a monster chasing me" or "I'm bleeding profusely from the head and I'm going to die" type of bad dream, but the ones that fuck with a person emotionally. Thankfully I can't remember the dreams in detail anymore (since they involve people here that I have to see on a regular basis), but I remember waking up and just feeling like I wanted to cry. It was one of the lonelier feelings I've had. Then I fell back asleep and had another bad dream; same emotionally-fucked feelings. Needless to say, I didn't wake up in a chipper mood. Good thing that today is absolutely beautiful, or else I'd be in one heck of a mood.
But, anyway. Sabres face Ottawa tomorrow. I have my fingers crossed...I'm afraid that we'll get our asses kicked, but I'm trying very hard to believe that those boys have what it takes to beat Ottawa. If they can beat Ottawa, I'll believe that they can beat anyone.
Ok, I should do some work and have lunch.
Have a fantastic Class and Charter Day, Ham-Techies!

Yes, ladies and gents, my apartment. Which has no internet. Technically.
So, it's 11:30 at night, and I have not done anything productive. Which would not be a problem if not for the fact that, well, I have assloads of work to do. So what do I do? Write in my Livejournal! Go Jaime!
So, the Beinecke dinner went well, despite being at a broiler. I met another grad student who is actually a Ph.C. and is going to Kenya in a couple months, but she and I are gonna hang out while she's still in Seattle. It's another Megan, too. How funny. I think I'm going to have to initiate a Suessian "Thing 1, Thing 2" method of distinguishing between all the Me(a)g(h)ans if this keeps up.
Hm...other news? None, really. Everyone around me seems to be either in a relationship or pursuing one. And, amusingly enough, the only effect it's had on me is to make me lose any desire to get into a relationship....or even date. And it's not because my friends have found losers; each one seems to have met someone decent and nearly-normal. So, it's just me being...I dunno, difficult. Or stubbornly independent. But my weirdness aside, I'm very excited and happy for all of them.
Maybe an attempt at some work is in order.

So, Happy New Year everyone. I hope that everyone is off to a good start. I for one had a crap-ass midnight, but it has gotten significantly better since then. JetBlue lost one of my bags (the one with my everyday life in it!), so I spent my New Year changeover filling out a lost baggage claim. Thankfully, I got my bag back two days later, which was such a happy dance-around time! And just yesterday my new stereo came in, so now I can have fabulous sound when I watch my DVDs on my laptop. Again, another happy dance-around time, but this time to music.
Oh, I start classes today. My classes are only on Mondays and Wednesdays, which is good in that I don't have to go onto campus as often and hopefully I can make way for more reading time, but is totally bad in that I have to get assloads of work done in order to be prepared for like 4 hours of class. We'll see how this turns out.
As for the weird dreams...well, I'm having them. Not really shocking, but it's just that my dreams keep involving people that have no reason to be there. That's what makes them weird...this time, at least. At least they have been happy-weird dreams and not freakish and sad weird dreams.
So yeah, I'm back in Seattle. Things keep getting better. The break at home was alright; I learned a lot of things. That was good, in its way. I liked seeing the guys and Char and Kathy. And I was able to stand and even occasionally enjoy the time with my family, Nicki aside. She is back to being a selfish bitch, apparently. That really put me off since I was hoping to spend some time with her. I could rant more on it, but I honestly don't feel like focusing on her any more than is (in my opinion) necessary.

Yup, Still in Buffalo. For another day. I'm leaving New Years Eve. Now don't get too excited, this wasn't my choice so much as fate made the planes to JFK so ridiculously late that I could not possibly make my connection. So, I'm here until Saturday, when I fly back home. Hey, it's a better way to spend New Years than what I originally planned.
But I'm exhausted. This ended up being a very long day. Ein langer Tag. Or something.
And I blame Sean for all of this.

...don't pay attention to the time, it's actually 4am. I am heading back to my Seattle home in a little more than 12 hours. I am mad tired, but I just wanted to say that this night was fan-tas-tic and has made me a little sad to be leaving, though I know that I would just be more sad if I stayed through New Years. So, better to just get out now, ya know? HOWEVER, you all are very very welcome to come to Seattle and visit! Now if only I can find a place to play shufflepuck....

What a burning question. I'll get the mag and find out for you, because I know you want to know as much as I do.
Anyway...so, this weekend was thoroughly unproductive. This week is my last week of classes and this weekend I have a Christmas party to attend. I'm glad that this quarter is pretty much done; I need the break. I have some papers to write and an exam to complete before I am completely done, but I officially can devote all of my time to those pursuits now. Unforunately, having the time to do something doesn't necessarily mean that I'll use the time wisely. But damnit, I'm going to try.
In other news..............blah. I'm not really sad anymore, but not due to any change in circumstances. I think that I'm just too busy and exhausted to really care at this moment in time. But things will get better. Hell, with questions like "Muessen Frauen immer kommen?" to ponder, how can things not get better?

Classes are good...next week I only have three days of classes, and it's the last week of hardcore homework...everything from here on out is projects. Which is cool by me. Though I don't even have any ideas for an upcoming project. That's not very cool.
Life is good. Next week I'm making dinner for Meaghan and Richard. It'll be nice. I'll have people over. Yay!
The weather is nice and cool, and it rains at night which is the GREATEST THING EVER. I love the sound of rain.
And I successfully made pita bread last night! Score! Now I just have to start making my own hummus. hmmm...

Life is back to status quo (read: quiet with a dash of boring). I start orientation tomorrow, and after that I start classes, so I'll be at a respectable level of busy soon enough. I have neither seen nor heard from that Mr.SeanPerson, and don't know whether to be happy about that or a little disappointed. Life is a bastard. It always slams me at the most inconvenient times. Always. Whatta cheap shot. I think that I need to be more busy, then such things won't be an issue.
In the meantime, I'm mastering the art of baking bread. And I've started to experiment with biscotti. It keeps my apartment from smelling like rice.
So, my mom says that I'm a pretty direct person. I don't quite agree. Some of you know me well enough to comment. Your thoughts?
PS: Terry Pratchett's Guards! Guards! is bloody funny. I highly recommend reading it.

I live on the West Coast now. Suh-weet. Loneliness hasn't kicked in yet....I've been too busy and too hyped up on caffeine.
I have one favor to ask of you Buffalonians....take some pictures of Buffalo for me (like the Anderson's sign, downtown, Delaware Park, Le Metro (on Elmwood), etc) and send them over. Because I want a few to put up on my wall.
And for you Hamiltonians....take pics of Hamilton...Beinecke, ELS, Root Glen, Downtown Clinton, the AV crew...whatev. I want those too because I miss my first home away from home.
COME VISIT!! NOW!! Wee caffeine!

Soooo....The trip to Seattle was alright. Definitely not the best time I've had, but what can I expect when my company has no interest in life beyond cable television? Anyway, I found a place...wasn't my first choice, but it's in a quiet neighboorhood, near a really really long running/biking trail, it's big, and I have a breakfast bar (yay!). Plus it's a walkable distance to school and major buslines. And the manager doesn't creep me out. But yeah. The only downside is that it's $600 which is the maximum I was allowing myself to spend on a place. Oh well. I have an extra $4000 from Hamilton...I'll survive. I move in on August 5th, which basically means that Chris and Brian won't be helping me. That's ok, though. A couple days on the road with my dad will be good, and I'm glad that I'll have my dad around to help me move it and ease the transition. I mean, it's not like I can just drive home for a weekend or something. I still have so much to do before I move, though...like get a U-Haul. Yeah, that would be good. Anyhoo...Seattle beckons.
In other "news", I'm back to my annual "I wonder what they're doing now?" musings. Like, some of my friends from high school who either ended up hating me or getting out of Buffalo as fast as possible. Like Inga...she was always pretty cool and smart as all hell. She was the only person with the balls to hit me if I swore. I really kind of respected her for that. I haven't heard anything about her, though I'm sure at this point the Army owns her ass. And Cory...days of Fun Dip and Ouija boards. Last I heard of her she was in California hanging out with some wicked-cool people and her bed was ghetto fabulous. But that was back in my freshman year of college. And then there are those stereotypical high-school-catty relationships I ended up having with some girls that at one point were some of my closest friends. God was that stupid. Kim turned mega-bitch on me because of a school project. A PROJECT! I even remember her boyfriend just giving me this "I know it's stupid but there's nothing I can do about it" look as she is ripping into me while I'm at work. And Jackie...I don't even remember what went wrong there...if it was something she did or something I did. Isn't it horrible when you can't even remember what it was that destroyed a relationship because it was that insignificant? All I do know is that the whole fiasco led to a spitfire prom and I ended up closer to Robin and Charlotte and that whole group of people. Though even the relationship with Robin slowly deteriorated. I just can't seem to keep people close for too long. Eh. Chalk it up to....I don't know what. It just being the way I am, I guess. But I guess here I can put down the public advert that'll sound like I'm coming out of Unsolved Mysteries: If you have any information about what these kids are up to, lemme know. I'm curious to know.
And now the bed.

Anyways....Chris and Brian offered to help me move out to Seattle. Now I just need to sign a lease on a place and I'll be all set. I have been ultra-lazy this summer. It's ridiculous. I still haven't called Hamilton to get a check for my scholarship. It would probably take about 3 minutes, but I just won't do it. It's $800 too. Now THAT'S lazy.
I don't think anything else of interest has been going on. I saw Brian Pimm for the first time since elementary school. He works at Pearl Street Bar & Grill. He really doesn't look much different than he did when he was 8 years old. It's amusing. I've also seen Char once or twice this summer. I have to go see her perform @ Shakespeare in the Park. That opened today. Maybe I'll go tomorrow or Saturday.
