Love, drugs, and other stuff. @ 03:52 pm

Its funny how life works out sometimes. As far as "dating" goes, I haven't done it in a looong time. When I was in college I was with this one particular guy for 2 and a half years. He was my first love and I adored him more than anything....but he had trust issues. Granted the trust issues stemmed from things that were my fault, I felt that if he couldn't get over them we couldn't be together. He was too controlling and I ended up breaking things off with him. This happened 5 years ago. After I became single, I sort of swore of dating, or being in a relationship again. I vowed to stay single throughout the rest of my college years.

Needless to say i am no longer in college in San Diego. I moved back in with my parents after 6 glorious years in San Diego. I have been home for almost a whole year now (wow time flies). I've found myself ready to start dating again, but its been so long I've forgotten how. Usually when I meet someone, the second either one of us starts to get somewhat close or attached I'm outta there. I've messed up a few friendships doing this in the past few years. Boys seem to say "I just fuck with their heads". I just wasn't ready. Now that I'm home, I wouldn't say that I was looking for a relationship but I just told myself i wouldn't back away if I met someone i liked. I met a couple people in my year here at home, 3 in particular. The first two didn't really go anywhere but were still friends.

One October night a friend and I planned to just have a mellow night and go to a local bar and just have a couple drinks. I ended up talking to a guy a went to high school with. We were never friends, but we both knew of each other. Our friendship turned into dating. Its been really difficult for me to have this connection with someone when I've tried so hard to block people out for so long. I want to and I really like it. But its hard for me to figure out how to do it. For so many years I've tried not to show that I like someone when really I do and I've gotten pretty good at it. So here I am dating this guy for a couple months, kind of struggling, but so far everything is going really good. Hes the first person I've allowed myself to let go with and not put up that wall.

So there always comes that time....when you need to have..."the talk". I really hate this part of dating. I don't want to have this conversation. But here's where things get tricky. Do you need to establish if you guys are exclusive or not? I haven't done this in so long this all seemed so foreign to me. I haven't cared about what anyone else does in years. But I find myself caring. I guess it's inevitable. I wasn't going to bring it up. I was content with the situation and how things were working out. But then...life happens.

I knew pretty much from the get go that he was planning a trip to Japan for 2 weeks sometime in December to visit friends. Which was totally fine, I told him have fun and I'm really jealous. It just so happens that right after he booked his flight my parents surprised me with a 2 week vacation to Hawaii. It just so happens that I leave 3 days after he gets back, with only Christmas in between. Pretty much that means I won't see him for a month. Now, were already at the awkward stage in our relationship where we are either going to be together or were not, and to make things worse were both leaving for a month. Obviously we needed to talk about things, and as much as i didn't want to talk about it I knew it would drive me crazy if we didn't.

We both agreed there's no easy answer to this. We like each other, that's easy enough. But what now? I don't want to set boundaries then say "Ok see you in a month!" but at the same time where do you draw the line? Would it be wrong to have a drunken new years kiss? or give a guy my number? He said he feels the same way. There's no right answer to this. I thought maybe an option would be just to not talk and just do our own thing until we were both back in town. Maybe trying to not think about him or what hes doing or what I should be doing would be easiest. Then I realized that is the old me coming into play. Just not get close, run away and not think about it. I really like him, why would I stop talking to him just because we can't physically be together. its more of an issue of i don't want to get hurt. If I don't care I can't get hurt. But who can live their life not caring? I still haven't decided on what I am going to do, and I'm most likely not going to. He leaves in 4 days. I guess we will see what happens...

Well moved back to SD. Worked for the summer and now back at school. I'm really over living in PB and I think it's time to move. I seem to be in LA every weekend anyways. I'm supposed to go to Palm Springs this weekend but my friends are having drama and I don't know what the deal is with that anymore. I kind of want to go and I kind of don't want to. Some friends may be visiting SD this weekend.

Last weekend my roommate Elyse and I went to typhoons on Thursday and maybe had too good of a time. Haha. What was supposed to be a couple drinks turned into staying out till 3am and not making it to class on Friday. I also lost my ID which ihave never done before. So I didn't go out on Friday. Then I drove up to LA on Saturday to vet my extra ID from my sister.

Spring break 09... my last. @ 12:27 am

Tags:

Just got back to SD after a lovely spring break in LA. Go figure I leave the beach or spring break, but oh well gotta do somethin different. I stayed at my parents house technically but I feel like I was never there. So thankful for my girls and friends in LA, they made it so much fun. Went all over LA..

Went to dimples karaoke bar in Burbank for some Monday night karaoke then bad to ashleighs house and drank and danced around till the wee hours of the morning. Went to Santa monica to South for trivia night, which we ended up not being able to play, but still a fun night. Met a cute boy there. ; ) Helped my parents out at their work party and did the hokey pokey with a bunch of 60 year olds. The magician gave us tickets to the magic castle so that was cool I guess. Then I went to Big Wangs bar in NoHo for my last night of spring break. Nights out in LA are always an adventure though. Picked up Taffy from a party and I havnt sen her in forever!!! She's hilarious as always.

Back to reality and school now. Bummer. I'm in the last stretch. Time to buckle down.

Lupe Fiasco at the Club Nokia @ 08:44 am

Yayy I got to hang out with Lupe again! I havnt seen him since Halloween last year. He had a show in LA at the brand new club nokia(which by the way is a really cool place). Jenna let me come along again and we got to hang out with lupe backstage and in his dressing room. Eat the catered food and meet everyone backstage. A band named Hey Champ opened for him and Lupe just signed them to his label. I really like their song that is gonna be their first single. Here's some pics from the night.

Shamu!Collapse )

Click above to see my pics from sea world. Sea World is so much fun...if you go with the right people. Now I know I am almost 22 years old but that doesn't mean I can't go to Sea World and gave a grand time. I went Monday with my cousin Karli and her friend amanda who were in town for the charger/colts game the night before. We bought shamu hats, swords, and got tattoos. Ok, ok, not real ones but they are awesome. Haha. Did u know wthey sell beer at the park too? I didn't. But maybe that's because I havnt been there since I was 4. Lol. Anyways I recommend Sea World with fun friends for great times. Oh and you can get a pass for the rest of 2008 and 2009 right now for the price of a single ticket! Dooo it! It's worth it. Cmon! It's Shamu all year long!!

Australia @ 05:54 pm

Hello Everyone,

So i am in my 3rd week here in Australia,and its been such a blast so far. The first two weeks were my volunteer project working in Lithgow at the Australian Ecosystems Foundation. Basically we planted trees for a week in the rain and snow, then cut down trees for a week up a mountain building a trail. Kind of ironic...We also got to take care of 3 baby kangaroos, feed and play with dingo pups, feed Quolls, and Emus. We would work all week mon-fri 9-3 then come home and have meetings with our tour leader and have discussion then cook dinner an pass out for bed. Except on Wednesdays...those were pub nights. On Wednesday nights our boss' would take us out to the pub for karaoke night. It was so much fun. Our boss' were really cool. Trevor...or "Trevahh" was the owner, he is this big burly man but really nice. He would take care of us at the pub. At any moment if a guy was talking to you the next thing you know trevahh is standing right behind you glaring at the poor guy. haha. We stayed at a camp with little plug in heaters as our only source of heat it was around 20 degrees....freeeeezing, and our camp was about 20 min away from town. not that there was much there, the highlight of the town was target....yeah.

The girls people here are way fun. The ten of us on the volunteer project of get along great...well most of us. lol, no but we havnt had any problems. Its weird ive never been around so many girls for so long.

I am currently in Cairns, a 3 hour plane ride north from Sydney. I got here on Friday and that was the start of my adventure tour and no more working!!.....annnnndddd....its warm!!! We met up with about 40 other ISV groupd who were volunteering all over Aus. Our tour leader is Trys, 25 from Australia and pretty fun. haha. We have already done so much here. Went to a club the first night, went and visited an aboriginal village, went on a party bus tour all night long last night and today we went snorkeling in the great barrier reef. How awesome is my life?... and its only day 3 of my adventure tour! 11 more days to go then another 6 in Fiji. Tomorrow I am going skydiving and then Tuesday is white water rafting. Ive gotten about 3 hours of sleep on average both nights here...thisi is gonna be an exhausting 2 weeks of adventure tour. its such a blast though. Our group is great and the hostels were staying at are super fun. Ive met people from all over the world. At night after partying we get back to tthe hostel and usually hang out in the common area on our floor and meet the most random people from all over. We met these Irish guys, and Australians of course, from the UK and everywhere. Its such a blast but its really hard to make time to sleep. Just got back from the great barrier reef all day today and now I have to go to dinner with the group. Hope to update again before im back...hopefully its easier with internet access at the hostels...there was none at the camp in the middle of nowhere....

Miss Everyone!
