Do you ever wish you could just go back, to say something different, to do something different, to be someone different?

30 days. [02 Mar 2014|10:39pm]
my phone has been out of commission for the past 24 hours and i've honestly been fine.

a lot of people have been like i bet you're freaking out and asking how i'm surviving well guess what.. here i am and actually relieved. i've been so relaxed and in tune with what's going on around me. it feels like a mini vacation. i'm so detatched from the world around me yet i feel so close to the people around me.

i think this needed to happen. i've been doing things that i used to do.. i'm sitting with my family, talking and engaging in conversations. i read a book, i'm more ahead. it may sound ridiculous but i'm not missing my phone one bit.

the one person i really talked to all day has found other ways to contact me and for that, i'm grateful.

i'll see you in a month for the first time & i cannot wait.

well hi there..

it's 2014 and i'm 25 years old. it's crazy how time flies.

i'm not where i wanna be but i've learned that everything happens for a reason & i know i'm getting closer to where i'm supposed to be.

just gotta keep reminding myself of that

loyalty is a must. [08 Mar 2013|11:37pm]
well now..

two weeks ago, i was ready to put it all behind me and guess what i'm back where i started.

i took a chance last night, swallowed some pride and i'm glad i did. i need more though. not necessarily more physical or emotional support just appreciation and reassurance. yeah. that's what i need.

i recently caught up with an old friend and he couldn't believe how much i've grown in the past few years and more recently in the past 365 days. i knew i had matured in that department a little but wasn't aware on how far i've come until he put it in perspective for me. i know what i want and i'm actually fighting for something for the first time. i don't care whether you understand it or not or even respect it. it's my decision and i'll give this all i got.

so that's what i'm going to do. gather my thoughts and make it all make sense.

i'm perfectly content laying on my couch right now, making a pizza and watching old re-runs of friends by myself on a Friday night.

i have a long day tomorrow, working from 1-10pm with running some errands beforehand.

You can't lose something you never had.. [20 Feb 2013|10:02pm]
[ mood | frustrated ]

It's been years since I have updated and I don't know what's bringing me back here but here I am..

writing in here used to be therapeutic and help me gather my thoughts. lately I have felt a little lost and I need to get myself back together. I feel like I'm slowly moving backwards in some directions and making strides in others.

I just don't know anymore. I need to get out of this funk and I'm hoping this is the ticket.

it's crazy that I have all these thoughts running through my head yet I can't find the right words to say.

as of 10:00 pm on Wednesday February 20th, I'm making a change. I can't do this anymore. I am honestly driving myself insane. I am making a vow to write in here again every day or as often as I can. it may not make any sense to any of you reading this but I'll do my best.

as for now, I have a movie in and I'm about to make myself a bath and prep for another long day.

xx - christine

memories keep haunting me, help me chase them all away.. [12 Oct 2011|03:11pm]
ever since you left, i feel like a part of me has left too. nothing and no one is quite good enough even though, i know you're not good for me. the way i felt around you or even in the same crowded room as you is something i haven't found again. it's insane. i've been distant from everyone and everything and can't seem to find my way back.

i'm going through withdrawal. you're like a drug i'm addicted to. i'm starting to go insane because i've been without you for so long. i haven't been able to hear, see, or talk to you. it's crazy. i find myself constantly going back to you and i thought you leaving would make this so much easier. it's harder. ten times harder.

others have tried to get close and i find something wrong with every one. it's not fair to myself or anyone else because i need to quit you first. i need to rid you from my life and memories completely. i need to get out of this rut. i need to find my way back.

the only good that has come from this is how well i'm doing academically. i'm losing myself in my school work and my job. it's definitely paying off because in one of the hardest classes i'm taking, i got a 95.8 on an essay exam when the class average was a 70-something. BALLER!

i'm going to climb mt. nittany today to release some frustration and stress. hope all is well.

 in 6 months, i'll be 23. yuck.

anyway... summer is flying by! jeeeez. in less than a month i'll be starting classes again and all that.

this summer has been pretty bland. i'm getting sick of PA but it's just making me more motivated to get out. i'm working a lot and i have been basically living alone. stela & angie planned on being gone all summer but meng has been busy with classes and traveling the globe practically every weekend. it's been kinda nice doing my own thing.

i move to a new apartment in about 2 weeks. WOAH. i'm really excited to be living with gianna. i think it's what i need. it's an unfurnished place and reminds me a lot of my first two years in pineford. as much as i loooved this past year and got along really well with my roommates, i'm over it. there were certain things that i'm glad to be getting rid of. it's a new adventure that i'm very ready for.

i'm really missing home. like really really missing it. i'm usually okay with not being home but it's different. i wish i was home. i miss my family and my friends. i feel like my life is more normal in jersey if that makes any sense at all. happy valley is one of the happiest places on earth, don't get me wrong but i feel like people come to die here. lol. this shit that goes on here is not real life. these people need a serious reality check and at times, i feel like i do too.

i got promoted at work :) that's one of the top moments. it's a huge promotion and a whole new responsibility. i'm starting to look for a second job too. something that makes like cash. i applied to a few places today and i have a few places to hit in person on my next day off of work. i'm looking into bartending, doing promotions, babysitting, things like that.

the bad news.. i took a nap today and when i woke up my phone is wackedddd. idk what happened but it's not sending texts or it will every once in a while and i can't make phone calls and when i receive them, the call gets lost. GREAT. so a new phone will be in my future.. ideally the iphone or driod or something better than my old school piece of crap.

entourage tonight. win!

hope everyone is having a great summer! xoxo

but i believe that lovers should be tied together [11 Jul 2011|03:53am]
"... even though i know you're still in love with him."
".. you still want him."
"say you're not."

you're finally saying things to me that i have been trying to hide for four years. i'm fighting back tears right now and surrendering because i can't keep fighting anymore. you're right. he's a drug to me and i haven't had my fix in so long that i'm going crazy without it. i thought i was stronger than this. he hasn't been around in so long yet i feel like he never left. i don't know what to do. i'm torn and probably throwing away some great things in my life but i can't seem to get away. i've been tossing and turning. i need to quit you. i need detox, rehab, something to make me get you away from me and my mind. you're killing me slowly.

shit's too unbearable, but i'll never give it up.
it hurts too much, but i never get enough.
i can't describe it, but i've had it so long
i'm always feeling weak, when i know that i'm strong
with you i'm nothing, without you i'm minimal.
never been a hero, only a smooth criminal.
never been blessed, but never been cursed.
never been last, but never been first.

I know you haven't made your mind up yet, but I would never do you wrong. [01 May 2011|07:56pm]
[ mood | blah ]

today is may 1st. woah. when did that happen?!

so many things have changed since the last time i've updated.. i've been making bank (thank god), found myself disappointed in a few people (shame), and realized certain feelings that i've had towards people.

i found a new apartment that i move into in the middle of august. i'm really excited about a new change because i think that's what i need. the place isn't furnished so i'm excited to furnish it all by myself and i had my first ever trip to ikea when i was home for easter weekend. i love what i found and can't wait to place my order. i just need to write the check for my security deposit on the place and then it's all mine. i'm moving in with a good friend of mine, gianna. it's gunna be a good time and good for me. i'm getting sick and tired of certain bullshit in my apartment and definitely ready for new roommates.

the disappointment for me has been in 2 of my roommates, my neighbors and myself. my roommates just aren't who i thought they were and have made some things awkward and there's definitely a lot of tension in the place right now. i haven't seen my one roommate in almost a week because she has been avoiding me because she knows she's wrong. i don't really want to get into it because it's a long story. people just make me laugh and i'm sticking to myself and not trusting a hoe. 
i've been spending a lot of time with my neighbors and one of the bros just did something shady so i'm walking away from that one. it sucks though because the kid sleeps right under me so it's hard to avoid him but whatever. my other neighbors are awesome and i'm so glad we're all close. i love those kids and not ready for this year to end.
i've been disappointing myself lately because i know i'm not living up to my potential but i made a vow today, as of may 1st, (lol) to change that. it's gunna be hard but i gotta do it.

aside from all that, i'm doing well. been doing a lot of me and what i want to do. i went to a formal friday with one of my good guy friends because his girlfriend couldn't come up for it and i had one of the greatest nights of my life. much needed night out in greek life. it was nice to have someone take me out to dinner, put my jacket on for me and just treat me with respect. even though i ended up at joe's late that night. lol. so classy.

well i'm out. time to be productive.

good luck on finals errrbody :)

[ mood | optimistic ]

 i'm back at state. sitting in my room and ready to kick the rest of the semester's ass :)

i feel rejuvenated & did a lot of thinking while i was home. i've been doing a lot of thinking lately actually and i've officially decided what i'm giving up for lent and let me say this may be my biggest challenge but it will end up with my greatest result if i follow through with it...
i've decided i'm giving up anyone who doesn't make me a priority in their life, mainly men. i'm doing me. don't get me wrong, i have been doing what i want but there's always someone i'm talking to and i need a break. i've just been incredibly frustrated lately and need to eliminate unnecessary crap from my life. so far it's going incredibly well! i feel great.

school starts again tomorrow and i'm actually excited about it. i haven't had that feeling in years. woah.

 i cannot believe how fast time flies. woah, hey march.

i've had my ups and downs. i'm doing pretty well at my resolutions but i can be doing better. at least i'm improving from last year and that's all that matters.

school has been really stressful and spring break couldn't have come at a better time. i spent a few days in the happiest of valleys & had a lot of catch up/ bonding time with my roommate stela who i really love. we went out, stayed in, laughed, cried and had an amazing time together. i worked a lot, like A LOT. i even put in a double shift on a saturday. which i will NEVER do i again. i was so exhausted by the time i was done.

i've been needing an escape from PA and everything lately and i'm surprised i found that escape here in jersey. i feel refreshed and i'm ready to head back to state college tomorrow for classes monday. i got in late wednesday night and i caught up on sleep, did yoga, worked out, spent a lot time with my family, and caught up with laura. i feel really good. totally refreshed. i don't mind that i didn't go out once or anything. i had more fun at home than i think i would have had elsewhere.

i cleaned out my room a little bit and came across a bunch of different things that i haven't touched in years. i found some notes and things from high school (including the sluts to do list), old books, and old memories that i had forgotten.

just wanted to say hi & catch you up a little bit. nothing too exciting.

happy spring break everyone :)

[ mood | touched ]

The only way to describe THON is incredible.

The love, energy, students, events in the room are amazing. you truly do not understand until you have experienced it. the weekend is an emotional rollercoaster. for those of you who don't know, THON is a 46 hour dance marathon. there is no standing for 46 hours while in the bryce jordan center that raises money for children with pediatric cancer. penn state doesn't make any money off of this, we just host it. all proceeds go to the hershey medical center and we are proudly the number one student run philanthropy in the world. it's amazing.
I think i slept 5 hours and that was around 4:30 saturday morning til 11 am saturday morning. you don't really want sleep. you're full of so much energy that you don't want to miss anything. i bonded with our partners a lot and danced so much and got to play with some of the kids. the bands, the performances and everything was awesome. I'm so glad i got to spend the pep rally on the floor with my big and our other dancers. our dancers did such an amazing job and i would love the opportunity to dance one day.

I helped make a difference and I am so inspired. during the last four hours of THON, i cried, laughed, danced, and sang. it went by so fast and our total this year was over 9.56 MILLION DOLLARS. i couldn't believe it. last year, it was 7.8. i didn't think it would jump so high. my sorority and fraternity we're paired with placed in the top ten money raiser for greek organizations. 9th place with $103 thousand. WORD. i came home around 5:30 pm yesterday and slept until 2:30 pm today. damn. i feel fantastic. it's great to be part of something that's bigger than i am.

happy superbowl sunday! i hope everyone is enjoying football, commercials, wings & beer! :)

alex came up this weekend for her birthday and it felt great to have her back. it was just like old times. lots of laughs, dressing up, dancing, shots, etc. etc. lol. i've missed her a lot. we still talk every single day and i'm really glad to have her in my life.

money has been tight for me lately and it's been hard for me to adjust because i've never really had this problem. being bar-age has literally killed my bank account. i need to start saving more and i'm considering picking up a second job. i've looked at a few options and i could become an alcohol promoter. this seems like something i'm really interested in. it'd be a great way for me to meet people and make bank. i know a few girls that do it and they really enjoy it. i'm gunna submit my application tomorrow and see how it goes. hopefully it goes well.

i'm going home friday with a few friends from school to go canning. i'm verrrry excited to be going home because it's been awhile and i can't wait to take friends! it should be a good weekend.

i'm also gunna stop going out for a bit. i need a break because it's starting to get boring for me and that's not ideal. lol. i keep going out in hopes to see certain people and i usually do but i just can't do it anymore. i can't get attached again. at least not now. it's not right for either of us. but it's really really really hard to do.

have a good week everyone! tomorrow's gunna be a loooong day. oh and it's gunna snow. typical.

I'm stretching but you're just out of reach . . . [25 Jan 2011|08:21pm]
[ mood | loved ]

woah. i'm 22. i'm not entirely sure how i feel about it. i'll get back to you on that.

i went canning this past weekend at the same place i went to last trip and i had the best time. we made $3100 which comes out to $310 a person. AWESOME! that's over a thousand more than we made last time. it was a co-ed trip and i had my doubts about it but it was one of the best trips i've ever been on. i'm getting very very close to these guys and i'm starting to feel like one of the brothers. lol. but yay for making bank!

my birthday was a complete shitshow. it doesn't compare to the poconos but it's a close second. it was gay night and i was excited to go out with my girls. yes, to the mezzanine. we had a rough time getting there because bitches weren't ready when i wanted to leave but when i got there, i had the best time. i blacked out within a half-hour. oye vey. needless to say, i spent all day yesterday in bed, dying. i feel like a brand new person today. woo!

as i was dying yesterday. two of my good guys friends came knocking on my door with a surprise... a dozen of red roses & a heart bouquet lollipop thing. it was the cutest thing ever & they're absolutely beautiful. it feels nice to be given flowers :) i'd love for it to happen more often.

well i'm off to do some work, i'll probably head out for a little tonight. peace ouuuut.

"I'm stretching but you're just out of reach
You should know
I'm ready when you're ready for me

To let you know

[ mood | giddy ]

so classes are in full swing and i really like my classes. my schedule is very light, only 12 credits and i'm done with classes very early except my 6-9 on monday nights but i can hang. lol. because i've been having too much free time, i just added another class that will get another one of my 400 level classes out of the way. i'm just about a week or so behind so i'll have to play catch-up.

the hoes, kevin & melvin came this past weekend and i had the greatest weekend i've ever had up here. i'm so glad they came. it felt good to let loose with my best friends at one of the craziest colleges around :)

i'm turning the big 2-2 on monday and i'm very blah about it. i'm going canning for THON this weekend so i'll start my celebrations sunday night. stoked!

the place i'm going canning is near philly which is near kev... i wanted to text him to tell him about it so maybe i could go see him but everything that has happened between us is keeping me from doing just that. i'm proud of myself. i'm a really different person when it comes to these things and it's a good change.

on the topic of men, a certain guy is back in my life. well. i guess he's never left but everything is really great between us now. i'm not overthinking anything. i'm just having fun and doing my thing. it's crazy that even 3 years, he still makes my heart jump when he walks into the room. the other night with him, was one of the best we've ever had. i'm fine with that. let's keep this going :)

today was a ballinnn day. i went to my 2 classes, was home by 1 pm. i napped until like 3:30 then went to the gym and decided to cook a lovely dinner for my roommates. it was cute. the first time the 4 of us have had a dinner together, just the 4 of us. we're also planning on playing in the snow later because it is snowing yet again in state college.

well, i'm off. kind of a pointless entry but i felt the need to update since it's been over a week.

and i'm leaning on this broken fence between past and present tense.. [10 Jan 2011|12:45am]
[ mood | annoyed ]

so classes start tomorrow and i'm excited for something new.

i went out last night for the first time being back with my one roommate and her friend. i'm usually so busy with sorority things that i rarely have time for my roommates or my apartment in general and i have vowed to change that this semester. i had the greatest time and i wish i had made more time last semester but i have good feelings about what's to come. i met some great people and saw some old. i did things that i rarely do in one night and it felt great. this morning i didn't feel too great but it was well worth it.

all the roommates are back and it feels good to have us back together but there's things you forget when living alone. like now, i'm literally exhausted and can't keep my eyes open but my roommates have these people over, not for drinking, just for hanging out and they're like screaming at each other and they know i went into my room to bed. i take that back, i think they're gunna start drinking.. i hear shot glasses. perfect. i guess i'm not going to be getting any sleep tonight and i don't think that's fair. i have to get up tomorrow at 7:15 to shower and go to class. this has just happened last semester too and i can't do it anymore. i need to find somewhere to sleep during the week because this shit ain't fair.

"And maybe that's the key.. not resolutions and forgotten promises, but instead a commitment to do this year a little better than the last."

^ this is something i came across and i think it's the perfect way to describe what i want from 2011. i've been doing so many things for me and it's only a week into the year.

after all the snow we got in wayne i never wanted to see snow again, well at least this winter. and now, it's been snowing the past two days in State College and is going to snow all weekend. and it's going to be bitter cold next week and that is conveniently when classes start. totally lame. i've been making the best of it though. i've been super productive around my apartment and i've been watching movies i haven't had the chance to see.

my roommates come back tomorrow so that means it won't be so quiet around here anymore and i have mixed feelings about it. i've gotten really used to living all alone but it'll be nice to have someone else around and not just myself.

that's enough for now. almost bed time for me.
