Hi hi. Yes I'm still alive, if anyone was wondering. Just been super busy as usual. Nothing too exciting just the hell that is my Mass Media Production class. Its a 4 credit class for a reason! They really make you earn that extra credit! The weekend was okay, nothing too great. Among the chaos that was Sunday I had to drive out all the way to Barnes and Noble to get a book I need to read for my Psychology of Personality class (taking two psych classes cause I thought I wanted it as a minor but I dunno anymore!) but they didn't have the book. I should have just ordered it off last week like I was going to, because I had to anyway. Not even sure if it's been shipped yet! Grrr. Anyway my throat still hurts but my other symptoms of illness are gone. Talked to Pete on the phone this afternoon - he was all cute ;) Well guess I'll get outta here soon (the library) and get some Molly's food as the Dining hall was CRAP as usual tonight. Thank god for honey dijon dressing to make the salad half decent!

Saturday, October 25, 2003


I was mean to Pete earlier for no reason :( I was disappointed we didn't get to chat as much as I would have liked online tonight because I was busy doing things around the house and stuff. So I said goodnight to him harshly and he just said 'goodnight baby' and signed off :( After a few minutes I realized that he left and I felt really bad. I was going to call him but it was alright half past midnight there and I didn't know if his parents were asleep and I didn't want to wake them (years of doing this and feeling really stupid and inconsiderate has told me not to do that lol.) Anyway tomorrow I want to go weigh myself, go to Walmart and Barnes and Noble, then go to my sister's spend the night there. Will probably be babysitting or at least spending time with the babies yay. Ooo my mom got them each a rocking horse for their 1st birthday! They are so cute! I want one - well I have a wooden one my grandpa made me when I was a baby but not a new-fangled one that makes noises and is all fluffy hehe. I will have to take pictures of them :)

Friday, October 24, 2003


Been a blah day. Not too much to really say about it. Next week is going to be another busy one (as if it will ever stop!) I really feel like venting but can't really say much about it. My roommate is driving me nuts thats about it lol. Probably seeing my niece and nephew this weekend yay ;) Miss the little rugrats! Not long til their 1st Bday (Dec 17) yay. Well thats about it better jump in the shower. Ta-ta.

Wednesday, October 22, 2003


Wow I don't think I have anything due for the rest of the week! yay! Of course on Friday I have to get up at 8am and re-do the TV project with my mostly loser group. We were suppose to do it tonight again but one of the actors couldn't get off work - which I'm glad because 3 hours on Monday was long enough. Half of the group didn't show up until an hour after we were suppose to meet - ugh I hate group projects because people suck. Anyway.

I thought I was getting better, getting over my illness but I'm not :( My throat is sore, I have a cough and my ears hurt. Thank god for Dayquil!

Mass Media Production mid-term went okay. Ended up being only 30 Questions! UGH so I studied 70+ terms for nothing - grrr. I think I did alright on it, probably got a B.

Awww thanks Jennie for the Halloween card :)

Halloween card from Jennie


Reasons (excuses) for not walking tonight:

1. Need to study for Mid-term in Mass Media Production tomorrow - 100+ terms only 40 will be on test (whats up with that?)

2. Have to revise paper due tomorrow for Brit Lit

3. Dining hall food has not agreed with me and I'm having stomach issues

4. I'm still kinda sick

5. Watched Gilmore Girls at the time I usually walk

6. While watching GG had weird popping sensation in my right ear - like fluid movement (#4)

7. Had to shave my legs

8. I'm just feeling lazy lately

9. Pete got his plane tickets in the mail

10. My roommate was reading earlier when I considered walking...

Okay in other words I have a few valid reasons but mostly being lazy. Pete and I have decided to open a savings account here for our future ;) yay. I've been thinking about doing one myself for awhile and he has also. Kind of a permenant thing to do - I don't think his name will be on it (not sure if it can be since he doesn't reside here?), but still he said he'd give me money to put in it when he could. So if we ever were to break up he'd be entitled to it back and everything. I don't think that'll happen though ;) As # 9 says Pete got his plane tickets in the mail woohoo. 51 Days! Anyway I better get off here and study. I am finally comprehending and remembering the terms as I read them from my neon flash cards which is good. Wish me luck!

Halloween card...

Awww thanks Erin for the cute card :)

Erin's Site


Awwww Pete surprised me today. Remember how I said he tried to call me earlier but I wasn't in ? Well while we were chatting on AIM my phone rang (I have a network connection through the college for the internet.) So I answered it and Pete replied "Hi baby" it was kinda weird being on the phone with him and seeing that he just replied online at the same time. It was funny and sweet ;) I put my away message on AIM and talked on the phone with him for about an hour. We've been talking on the phone a lot lately...I called him yesterday for an hour with 2 phonecards and once during the week for half an hour. Well I'm not feeling too much better - I have Tylenol flu gelcaps and Dayquil so I've been taking those. Without them I would be probably sleeping on and off all day. Studied a bit for my Writing for Mass Communication midterm tomorrow - need to go over the stuff again but yeah. Last night I was going to study for it but I ended up signing on to AIM and chatting with Sara who was also avoiding studying - some things never change! I really wanna go over and see her at UF when we both have a not-so-chaotic weekend not sure when that will be though! Anyway going to go jump in the shower, read some Brit Lit, study some writing stuff and probably go to bed early. Tomorrow will be hectic - have 3 classes and then have to go to Comm building for 3 hours to sit around and watch my group tape our TV project for Mass Media Production. Sounds fun right ? lol.

Previously mentioned Virtual Gift ;)

Rose from Pete

Awww Pete just told me he tried to surprise me by calling earlier but I wasn't in :( Went outside to study grrr. So sweet though ;)


I feel sick :( Been fighting it off for about a week now, think it got the best of me though! NO! UGH! Have to study today. Awww Pete sent me a virtual gift from this site ;) Anyway might go down to dining hall and eat something. Ugh.

At library working on critical analysis of Shakespeare's Sonnet 91 in case anyone is interest here it is:

Some glory in their birth , some in their skill,
Some in their wealth, some in their body's force,
Some in their garments, though new fangled ill!
Some in their hawks and hounds, some in their horse;
And ever humour hath his adjunct pleasure,
Wherein it finds a joy above the rest,
But these particulars are not my measure;
All these I better in one general best;
Thy love is better than high birth to me,
Richer than wealth, prouder than garments cost,
Of more delight than hawks or horses be,
And having thee, of all men's pride I boast,
Wretched in this alone, that thou mayst take
All this away, and me most wretched make.

Gotta love Shakespeare!

Absolutely Fabulous!

Ooo so I was chatting with Pete and he said Ab Fab was on, so I thought it was a one from series 4 that he hadn't seen. He said it was new though - and yes - Series 5 started today! Yay. I love Ab Fab! Pete said he'll keep me up to date with the episodes and get me the dvd of the series when it comes out ;) Watching my dvd of series 2 at the moment hehe.

Random Stuff

Not much going on. Ooo I learned how to make the £ sign yay and the ©, and the √© so I can finally type fiance√© properly yay. Used pagebuilder to make a webpage for an assignment thats due tomorrow - it wouldn't let me use the symbols so that was annoying. Anyway yes my life is boring. Staying here this weekend - have to work on a paper due on Weds, and study for a mid-term thats on Monday and one thats on Weds fun fun.

Thursday, October 16, 2003


Well I can see it now - yay. Isn't it weird how you sometimes forget how different you are from the people around you? For instance today at dinner I sat with my roommate and her old roommate and suitemate. Of course the topic got on to Pete and him being from England. Then her old suitemate started talking about "Bend it like Beckham" which I haven't seen yet but want to - as I am 'british in my head' and a total anglophile. Maybe Pete will want to rent it when he's here or if I can I might get it on dvd cheap. Anyway she started talking about how she thought it was weird to see Indian people with british accents and that she never thought about Indians immigrating to England. I guess being with Pete for so long I kinda took for granted that everyone knew stuff like that. I guess not. Interesting. Other than that I haven't been up to too much - just homework, starting to study for two midterms I have next week, and I have to start on a paper due a week from today. Pete was talking about how he really wants to move here and that any reservations he ever had about it are gone which is good. I really hope we can sort it out to get married around the time I graduate. He got his information packet from the local community college in the mail the other day so he's been looking into that. He still hasn't gotten his tickets in the mail so he called ebookers and they should be on their way to him. Oh by the way, if anyone who is a member of my MSN Group wants to see the pics from yesterday with my sister they are on there :) Best be off here. Night!

Can you see me?

Since around 8pm my blog hasn't been showing up on my comp. Well only the upper top part of it has. Hmph. This also happened with my first blog. I just went to view it with blogger and I can see it - whats up with that?

Wednesday, October 15, 2003


Yes I am. Busy again this week. Actually not too much to do today but have tons to do in general. Mid terms coming up UGH. My sister and niece came to visit me yesterday :) We had a good time and she took pics that I'll add to my MSN group in a few mins. I'm in the process of getting a new tag board type thing for the right side so yeah that should be up soon. Will probably be back later - I dunno.

Sunday, October 12, 2003


Sunday's are always my least favorite days - nothing on TV, nothing to do, preparing for Monday etc.

My Zonkboard is messed up - grrr. Talked to Pete earlier on the phone for half an hour. Called him because we just got off AIM and I ended up not going to the motel so thought we could chat a bit but we ended up just talking on the phone and deciding to meet later. Tony answered the phone, which is always a bit funny because he sounds like Pete when he picks up the phone. When I don't get much of a reply from 'hello' I know it's Tony so I say hello again and its our little signal that its me. So he says, "Hi Julie" I say, "hey Ton how are you? can I talk to Pete?" "I suppose so," he says sarcastically as usual, "I'll transfer you over." Then I hear Lin in the background and then the stupid internal tune. Then I get Pete lol. Looks like we have at least one rodent in our house - found droppings in my room and the hall closet. Ugh glad I'm staying at school cause I would be totally paranoid if I had to sleep in my room knowing theres a creature in there lol. Did a bit of Brit Lit reading, could have worked on my Adobe In Design project as my mom has it on this computer but I didn't bring the project on a CD-R with me so I would have to start over again and it'll be easier just to work on it later when I get back to school or tomorrow. Its not due til Weds but I haven't gotten much done on it. Anyway my mom will be home soon and she's making London Broil for dinner (my fav) so I'm making Yorkshire Puddings yum! Best be off and chat with Pete ;)

Saturday, October 11, 2003


Wow I spent about $65 in a matter of like 30 mins! My mom and I went to the mall to look around for an anniversary present for Pete and a present for one of my friends for her bday (it was last weekend.) I went into Things Remembered to see what they had. I ended up getting the album I saw online and got it engraved with our names on it (Julie & Pete), and an album for my friend with her name engraved on it. They were having a buy one and get one half off so I did good. I've been thinking I'm good at picking out gifts and I like buying stuff for people - I should become a professional gift buyer. Hmph dunno where English or Communications degrees fit in to that but hey it's a thought lol. Before that we went into Dillards from the parking lot to go to the bathroom. Right outside the bathrooms was a table with these adorable stuffed dogs on it that barked and wagged their tails! I had to get one for Pete - the beagle as thats one of the dogs we want when we are living together. I don't feel like doing the html for the link but go to if you wanna see what I'm talking about. Have to keep this page away from Pete so he doesn't find out but he never look at it anyway lol. Anyway thats about it. Might walk later. Oooo I lost 3 lbs in the last 2 weeks which is good consider atkins hasn't been going too well and I didn't exercise a lot this past week as I was so busy. Total weight lose: 18 lbs since 8/18 woohoo. In the wedding planning mood - got a little free booklet from Things Remember.

Week from Hell is over....

Yay the school week from hell is over. I spent a total of about 7 hours in the library last night from 3pm until 10pm. Okay so I did take a break to go back to my room and eat left overs from my lunch, but for the most part I was in the library. My mom came up yestday and we had a nice afternoon out. She brought up a ton of Halloween decorations and Atkins stuff. Then we went to the bank and a gas station so she could get coffee, gas and cigarettes. (Yes my mom smokes and is always saying she has to quit.) Anyway then we stopped at a Vintage clothing/furniture store. I didn't want to stop in at first because most 'vintage' place are just full of crap. But we actually each found something we liked. She found very hippy style fringe/patchwork style jeans (indeed not vintage but hippy looking nonetheless) and I found a dark/olive green long skirt that has elastic parachute style ties at the waist and bottom. I think someone will know what I'm talking about. The skirt is a bit tight around the stomach/thigh area but it looks good and should fit better if I lose a bit more weight but its okay if I don't as well. Then we went to a really good Mexican restraunt and sat upstairs looking over Saint Augustine. The food was really good and decently priced. Oh in the Vintage store I did see a Royal Wedding magazine from 1981 (wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Di of course.) it was originally 1.85 pounds, the Vintage store wanted $14 for it - ummm no. I got my skirt for $16 and will get a lot more use out of that hehe. Talked to Pete earlier on the phone - he has to go to bed as he has to get up at like 5am to go to work tomorrow :( But at least he'll be paying off his credit card bill for the flight, and therefore having more money to come here with. yay.

I had an idea of another things to get Pete for our anniversary coming up - you know those things with your name on them and what it means etc. Well I was thinking of getting his name and my name for him. What do you think ? I dunno whether I like the album idea better or not. Might go to the mall this weekend as I think they sell the name things there this time of year so I'll see how much those run. Hmph. Anyway going to watch a movie or two tonight with my mom - Anger Management (that Pete and I saw in the cinema last time I was there,) and The Family Man, which I recently got on dvd. Ooo my mom just came home with pizza - the new Papa John's Barbeque Chicken Hawiian Pizza! It tastes a lot like the Texas BBQ pizza at UK Dominos - but with pineapple mmmmmm must tell Pete tomorrow about it - he will want some! Obviously Atkins hasn't been going well this week but I haven't weighed myself in 2 weeks, might do tomorrow morning just to see where I stand. Ta-ta.

Playing Catch up...

Ah. Why do stupid classes cram EVERYTHING into a week ?! Today I spent all day in the library typing up a script for my Mass Media Production class. I was suppose to spend the day working on my feature article for my Writing for Mass Communications class but last night I offered to type up the script as I was a writer on it and didn't really contribute all that much to that. This week has been hell. I was staring at my feature article for 30 minutes and got a paragraph done. Ugh. My mom might come up tomorrow to visit - she bought me tons of Atkins stuff today and might bring up some Halloween decorations yay. I really should spend tomorrow working on my feature article but I will have from 4:30 on to work on it so maybe I'll be okay. Just maybe. I feel bad, I met Pete online at 4pm while I was in the middle of writing the script and really didn't chat to him much at all. He has to work then next to Saturdays and Sundays :( But that should pay off his flight. Hmm he booked the tickets almost 2 weeks ago and they still haven't come through the post - grrr. He said they're having a strike so that probably has a lot to do with it. Ah Royal Mail sucks as much as USPS if not more. Bah.

Worn out...

Been a long day, not too much completed. Have tons more to do this week. Just watched Gilmore Girls as a little break and had some very unhealthy mozzarella sticks. Have a headache :( My jaw also hurts and has been hurting on and off for a few weeks now - weird. Not sure if it has something to do with my teeth or what. Anyway going to shower because I reek of Molly's and then read some Brit Lit or work on something else...

Which month are you?
brought to you by Quizilla


Which American City Are You?
brought to you by Quizilla


Had a pretty relaxing weekend considering I had a 4+ hour test. I got some studying done for my big Psychology of Personality test on Tuesday so yay me. Pete called me earlier...we had some laughs at the expense of his parents and grandparents - he was just making impressions of how they don't really listen if he joins in on a conversation during dinner and they don't so it was pretty funny ;) I got depressed though after awhile of chatting, I don't know why, just kind of feel like they don't like me or something. I don't like the way they treat Pete sometimes but when I spoke up about it in the past it turned into this whole big thing. So anyway I have learned to keep my mouth shut, I know its not that they don't like me I can't really explain it though. Anyway. Been a bad Atkins week/weekend. Been having Reeses cravings and cookie cravings grrr. Must be better this week. I didn't weigh myself this week so I'll see how it goes for the weight thing next weekend. I don't think I've gained any back which is good. Well best be off here might go post on Web CT for my Brit Lit class. Ooo by the way - I got an A on my Brit Lit test I took on Weds, and an A on my Magazine Cover I turned in a week ago last Friday. Yay me.

Christmas crackers...

Christmas is coming up fast, indeed it is. I'm starting to see decorations out which I think is nice because it means Pete will be here soon yay. So I was looking at buying Christmas crackers online - because there is no where around here that sells them and Pete can't bring them on the plane with him (technically I think he could but he would have to take the cracker part out - which defeats the whole purpose of them.) Geez they're so expensive online even for the crappy gifts! They also have wedding crackers on the that site which I think is cool - must enter that into memory for wedding planning time lol. Well thats all for now - being lazy. Dorm is a mess have clothes hanging up everywhere because stupid dryers don't dry! Grrr.

Saturday, October 04, 2003


Ooo I saw Sarah found out how to do Titles so now I did too, interesting. Anyway lol

Work up at 6:45am to get up and get ready, go to breakfast before the 8am test. Well I decided to lay back down for a few mins and I woke up at 7:30 ah! So I threw clothes on and went to breakfast and then went to the test. It was okay, the essay and reading/english part was really easy - I dunno if I did so good on the math part. If anything, I'll have to re-take that section of the test grr. Got an A on my Brit Lit test I took on Weds yay. Anyway not much going on - have to go down and put another 50 cents in the dryer ugh.

Friday Five

1. What vehicle do you drive?

I drive a '92 Silver/Gray Toyota Tercel, 2 door.

2. How long have you had it?

Since around August 2000.

3. What is the coolest feature on your vehicle?

Umm probably my CD player.

4. What is the most annoying thing about your vehicle?

It doesn't have AC which is really annoying in Florida most of the year!

5. If money were no object, what vehicle would you be driving right now?

Hmmmm. Not sure really. I know Pete would say a Viper hehe. I would like either one of those nice new minis or something similarly cute and small ;)

Well nothing much going on here. I told Pete I'd email him if I decided not to go to Walmart after work, and I decided not to so I emailed him from my phone before I got online because well it was easier and he isn't on. Might email him again. Grrrr.

Thursday, October 02, 2003

Hello. I'm really tired at the moment. My Child Psych test went pretty good and I was done within 20 mins. So I had an hour to come back and relax before my next class. Have a test in my Psychology of Personality class on Tues and it will be REALLY hard. So I have to start studying probably tonight - if not tomorrow. I do have to go over stuff for the CLAST on Saturday though so might do that tonight. FRIENDS is on at 8pm so that'll be my break. Guess thats it for now ;)
Brit Lit test went pretty good - think I only missed 1 and a 1/2 multiple choice questions. Have Child Psych test at 8am tomorrow grrr. Have been studying for that - think I know it pretty well. Over the weekend I got The Family Man at Walmart for $10, it's the Collector's Edition too. Pete and I saw it at the movies back in December 2000, the last time he came for xmas :) Its a really cute movie. Anyway tomorrow I have my 2 psych classes and then I have to work on my assignment due on Friday for my Writing for Mass Communications class. At least I don't have a test on Friday - woohoo. But I do have a stupid 5 hour one on SATURDAY at 8am! Ahhhhhh, stupid CLAST. Anyway g'night.

Wednesday, October 01, 2003

Hmmm. I'm thinking about getting Pete this for our anniversary. I'll add a few pics of us and get it engraved with our names and such. What do you think ? I'm thinking it isn't very manly but I have NO IDEA what else to get him ;) I'll probably get him a dvd or something along with that to even out the unmanliness (that probably isn't a word.)
Added a countdown until when Pete arrives in Orlando - at the bottom of the page ;) 71 days yay. My right menu is a bit longer than my main part for some reason, hmph. Anyway best be off to chat with Pete before I have to go take my Brit Lit test ;)
Welcome October. It's been cloudy here for the last 3 days and I have LOVED it - get to wear jeans without dying of heat stroke. So it feels like October here, well as much as it can in FL - cloudy, bit of wind, high of about 75F Yes thats nice for us ;) I'm tired. Roommates mom called at like 6:30am or something, then her very loud alarm went off and she hit the sleep button and it went off again, and again. Grrr turn the bloody thing down and get up the first time I goes off!!!! So I didn't sleep well after about 6:30 and had to get up at 8am for my 9am class. Have a Brit Lit test later and then a Child Psych test tomorrow - ugh.
