[music |"Crash Into Me" by Dave Matthews Band]

So...last night i got back from a 5 day trip to vancouver. I'm sorry, but 5 days in one place stuck with your mom and 5 year old sister is a little too much to handle. However, i did get some wonderful shopping in. My mom gave me $300 for the trip ($450 canadian) cause we were on like the "rodeo drive" of canada so it had a ton of designer shops and some of the best shopping in canada. But, because i'm me, i spent all of it in about 2 hours and only got a few things. This including a two lacoste shirts (black and hot pink), tommy hilfiger jeans and capris, a zip up hoodie blue jacket thingy, a superman t-shirt meant for little boys, 2 dave matthews band cds from virgin records (stand up and everyday), and a bunch of random crap from china town. I'm quite happy with all of it though. I watched laguna beach when i got home cause i missed it the night before. Its amazing how happy it makes me. And because it was tuesday, a wonderful episode of the real world was on. unfortunately the real world is a little too real now due to the death of danny's mom. Today i caught up on my dawsons creek which included watching tv from 11 am- 5pm. Good news, i'm finally getting used to braces and can finally eat. I can't wait until next week when i go up for erica's bat mitzvah...almost everyone is going to be there and that makes me sooo happy. gabe, as i have said before, get ready for a major packer marx hugfest. Turns out syd, greg, and i are flying up the same day the cits are leaving and we land at like 11 so if i plan this out well enough and stop being lazy and call my cits...there is a good chance i could run into them which is....AWESOME might i say. Thats all for now.

hoping to be canadian,
amanda

Ugliness...still not wearing off [Aug. 2nd, 2005|02:28 pm]

[music |"Blinded" by Third Eye Blind]

I keep on randomly looking in the mirror hoping that i actually do look decent in braces...but it never really works. still ugly as ever. Yesterday when i got home i went out with my brother and his friends and they bought me a smoothie so all was good. Then i got home and i had to babysit my sister and her friend. It wasn't that hard though...they're getting older, they can take care of themselves. I was brought carl's jr. from my brothers friend again. I'm being taken care of. It took me a few hours to eat the burger, but i lived. Last night Laguna Beach was on so i was happy. 30 minutes definitely isn't long enough though. Its so weird to watch it and be like "i got there" and stuff like that. I guess thats what happens when you watch a show that is based 5 minutes away from you. I was talking to josh from camp and he was with his cabin and it was really funny because we attempted to play hot seat...we were unsuccessful. But that's not the point, it was still fun. It was really weird talking to him cause it was like i was so connected to camp...but i wasnt there. I was doing a cabin time for the first time in 2 weeks...frickin amazing. My teeth hurt like hell, i still feel ugly, and since im still getting over bronchitis, its hard for me to get out...but don't let that stop you...feel free to invite me somewhere :-P. My entries are starting to get random but whatever, its better than nothing. At least i'm writing something. I have made a pact to actually use this livejournal...and thats exactly what i plan on doing.

the still ugly girl,

Succh a horrridddd day. Did i really just have to get braces on? i believe i did. I look honestly like absolute crap. like i don't even know how much worse it can get. I wouldn't be surprised if no one talked to me for the next 2 years. My friends with abandon me, i'll eat lunch in the bathroom, etc.
are you ready for this? If you are afraid of blinding yourself. close your eyes immediately.

She Likes Me For Me [Jul. 31st, 2005|04:41 pm]

[music |"Hey Leonardo" by Blessid Union of Souls]

I got freaking 12 hours of sleep last night. That's like unheard of after the age 5. It's a wonderful feeling and thanks to antibiotics, sleep, and a bunch of over-the-counter drugs, i am feeling back to normal. This morning i learned how to make french toast which to me is quite an accomplishment. To continue my habit for the last few days, i watched a few hours of tv before deciding to be productive and go outside and tan (its productive enough for me) while every now and then step into my pool temperature spa to cool down. I was out there for a while and thought that maybe i should go inside considering i wasn't wearing any suntan lotion. Now, as a result of that, i have a minor burn on my stomach. It will turn into a nice tan so i'm not complaining. I continued to watch tv when i came back inside and then went upstairs to take a shower which turned into a decently long bath (i love summer time...just a bunch of free time). Now, i'm out of the shower, my parents and sister are gone out to dinner with one of my sisters friends families, and my brothers are who knows where. So, i find myself yet again home alone with nothing to do. i guess i'll just have to figure something out :-P. hopefully in the next few days i'll be well enough to start going out again. i think i am definitely in need of a longggg trip to the mall. (man, i sound like a girl)

until we meet again,

New LiveJournal [Jul. 30th, 2005|08:53 pm]

[music |Camp Playlist..."What I Got" by Sublime]

So, i decided to get a new livejournal. Its been a year since my last one and it seems a little un-me. Camp ended almost 2 weeks ago and that was hard like always. I really enjoyed it this year though. It was a lot different than last year. Being in 8th grade and being the oldest in the session makes a big difference. You come into it really sure of yourself which is better than last year which all you could do was feel intimidated by the 8th graders as they pranced around in their thongs (sorry to be so visual). I got to know a lot of my friends a lot better this year and the counselors were really great (not neccesarily mine specifically). The guy staff was great this year and i think most of them actually knew my name *gasp* i know. Last year was amazing beyond anything but in a really different kind of way. I'm definitely going to remember my shomrim years as some of the best of my life. I'm going up to oakland in august with greg and sydney to see everyone for erica's bat mitzvah so that should be really fun. Almost everyone will be there. Jay can't make it but i'm going to make him visit me sometime this summer. The next weekend after i go home from camp i went on a cruise to ensenada, mexico. I started feeling sick and it didn't get better. I just kept on coughing and when i went to the montague hotel "resort and spa" in laguna beach for my dad's work executive retreat, i ended up leaving the next day (we only live 5 minutes away) cause i didn't feel good. That was tuesday and on thursday i ended up going to the doctor. Turns out i have bronchitis but i'm on antibiotics so its all good.
The last few weeks after camp are definitely the hardest because at any given point in the day you have to know that there are people at camp and its still going on without you (selfish, i know). At least during the school year you know that no one is enjoying it. I guess i just miss serenading the boys, tanning during menucha, and chewing on spoons for no apparent reasons. The last night was really hard just to see everyone talk about the summer and realize that it was actually over. We were there for a month and although it didn't feel that long, it really was. Some moments there were just some i'm never going to never forget. Like when i fell asleep during Raid On Entebbe and Adam Harris just sorta came over and stared at me for awhile and then walked away or how on every shabbat our cabin would get screamed at for serenading boys at 11 o clock when the little kids were sleeping. This livejournal probably won't last long considering i'm pretty bad at keeping these kinds of things up. if you notice i'm slacking just yell at me to write it in again and i promise i will. this was fun.

the dancing girl you all once knew,
Amanda
