Hi Thurrrr!

Hey guys! I am seriously the worstttt. I've been doing...who knows. a little bit of this/that. I'm currently in Orlando spending the holidazeee w/ the familia. I have lots of cute/funny photos to share w/ you guys hahah. & i know this is going off topic but I just heard this in the background (my mom is watching the news)--"Semoa (sp) is cancelling Friday, just this once because they are changing timezones."
what? this is the kind of stuff that makes me
question EVERYTHING that goes on in life. so what ur saying is that a country can just say-"u kno what-lets just skip friday". and if you're going to skip a day..WHY FRIDAY. THAT IS THE BEST DAY OF THE WEEK...suckers.

anyway..ive been building my record collection. Today I found Thriller, Best of Diana Ross, KID & PLAY, an
d..omg PURPLE RAIN. I felt like a lioness in a deli full of fresh cold cuts. I also bought "The Laptop DJ Handbook" and it has been providing me w/ some awesome history facts about DJing. Things that I'm like "omg..DUHHH..thats why its called a dub" hahah. & My AWESOME brother bought me a mixer for xmas!! its like everything is falling into place which feels AWESOME!

Oh yeah, before I forget..I FINALLY GOT MY POLAR BEAR TATTOO!!
I couldn't be happier...but you know how they say once u start you won't be able to stop? i know what i want my next tattoo to be already! haha. don't worry dad...its not happening..or is it?! haha jk..or am i?! ok sorry.

i've been in orlando since last w
ed/thur-i'm not quite sure because I never really know what day it off by 1-2 days all the time. The way I came up? GREYHOUND..a mode of transportation I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy. I thought it was going to be a walk in the park trip...yeah, you could call it a walk in the park, if said park was filled w/ zombies/crackheads/haitian cooking. OMG...WHO BRINGS FISH ONTO A BUS?! seriously. but that isn't the worst of it all. I wanted to burn my body after getting off that bus. it was theeeeeee dirtiest thing ever. I'm pretty sure I got skin/head lice-but don't worry, these third degree burns i now have mean im clean...ha. I have never LEGIT LEGIT felt like I was a filet mignon being dangled in front of a starved wolf. I was eye-RAPED by every man, woman, and baby on that bus. I walked in on a handicap kid taking a piss....It was just all...very...grannnnnnd. But I had to get home STAT..and $39 is $39 is $39. I guess you really DO get what you pay for hahah. BUT one should EVER ride the greyhound. I'm not saying that I'm better than anyone or I'm a queen or whatever because i am not- i am a princess! lol. but i would rather have hitchhiked to Orlando then taken that fish-filet ride.

I think instead of trying to put random pictures throughout this post, I will make a separate "photos" posting its like a picture book! But before I favvvvvv sent me another flier for his awes
ome, VERY SOON UPCOMING FLAWWWDA TOUR--so heeeeereeeyaa go suckers! it's maddd decent riiiite?! ;)

J'espere lire ces livres

Happy Sunday Funday Everyone!

Very RARELY do I think about books or want to read them for fun. Don't take that to mean I am uneducated because it is in fact my education that makes me not want to read for pleasure.
Back in elementary school, you were allowed to read whatever book you wanted- Clifford the big red dog, the magic school bus, omg and who can forget GOOSEBUMPS!! After that time, books were something teachers forced upon students. Even now that I am in grad school, I'm so busy reading about non profit/tax/private accounting rules and regulations, that I don't have time nor eye strength to read more than my REQUIRED reading! BUTTTTT..

Now that its winter break & I have more than a month off, there are 2 books that I REALLY want to read/I suggest you guys read as well...

1. On the Road- By Jack Kerouac

The narrative follows the 2 main characters of the book, "Sal"vatore Paradise (narrator) & Dean Moriarty over the yrs 1947-50 in the USofA. "On the Road" is in large part, an autobiographical piece, based on Kerouac and friend's spontaneous road trips across the country. This novel takes place during the postwar era...which means lotsaa music & drug references!
My friend Bryce told me about this book; he said I remind him of the "care-free attitude and sense for adventure" found in Dean. Now I've got to read the book to see if that was a compliment or not hahahha. We also plan on re-creating Sal's travels cross country & writing a modern day version of "On the Road"....hmmmmm

2. The Last Tycoon- By F. Scott Fitzgerald
I randomly saw this book in a Lucky Magazine, of all places. Since Lucky is a fashion magazine, I figured this book MUST be worth looking up. I mean, putting an image of a book took space away from fashiiionnista type things-so it HAS to be that good..& from what I read it is!!
When Fitzgerald died, this novel was unfinished and in rough form. So a close friend of Fitzzyy collected/edited the book notes he found and published "The Last Tycoon" in 1941.
Its about a Hollywood producer who finds himself not only struggling to find love and success in a world of cut-throats, but who is in the ultimate struggle for his own life. Today's literary critics are in agreement that Fitzy intended the title to be "The Love of the Last Tycoon".....potato, po-ta-toe

SOOO....if any of you have read either of these books, please leave comments abt what you thought of them! Also..if you have any other books you'd recommend please share!

Tannnksss a lott =)
