The Just Thought I'd Share Thread
 
Caitlin a.k.a. Enchanted Stevie had posted a thread on That Other Board called "Just Thought I'd Share" - - - It ended up being really popular. It also helps to save a lot of space and keep things from getting really disorganized with a million different threads. I asked her if it's okay with her if I borrow the idea and start one in here and she said to go for it. :cool:


The idea is you just post any ol' random thing - news, an update about what you're doing, thoughts you've just had, ideas, wishes, hopes, dreams, w/e it's ALL good!

So here we GO! Have fun! :p

Here's one to start:

Definitely wanna enjoy some sun this Labor Day, so I'm gonna go
out in the back yard and read now. :nod:

That's awesome!
Nice choice of song, too - I've always loved that.
It's very "jazzy."

I'm just getting back from a walk where I ran into my drug dealing ex-roommate/ex-closest friend at Wellesley, and.....couldn't have had a better time talking to her again. Such is my life.

daniellaaarisen 09-07-2009 06:33 PM

I LOVE Brown Eyes. So much.




San Francisco was absolutely beautiful yesterday. Capitola (a quaint little beach town) was gorgeous today. And Marissa isn't responding to my texts.

Some hottie named Dani claims I'm ignoring her, but I haven't gotten a text from her all day, and it kind of makes me cry inside.

JTIS.

....erm, until I just checked my phone mid-post. JTIS again?

Dude, I WENT to the bank today on top of calling. Both closed. But I'm trying to purchase again right now. I'm really pumped to post a bought my tickets, JTIS.

And someone needs to pick up her phone so we can celebrate.

Did you both meet through The Ledge? I always got the impression from your posts you knew each other in "real life" until I read this. Sorry if I'm being nosey, it's just that I am, well, nosey!

That was brilliant! I love Brown Eyes, definately one of the sexiest FM songs.


I ran into an ex-friend today. On a train. One of the worst places to run into someone you don't want to talk to is on any form of public transport, because then you have an awkward journey full of inane questions and one word answers. I wanted to be listening to the Weepies album I had just put on my Ipod.

It's 2am and I'm now watching old episodes of The View on youtube and getting het-up over topics that were pertinent a year ago.

We did meet through the Ledge. We essentially haven't stopped talking for the past few months, though, so I'm sure that impression isn't random :) I was supposed to visit her while college shopping back east but since I had to cancel due to school obligations, she's coming here for Halloween instead :)

trackaghost 09-07-2009 08:36 PM

Ah cool :) You guys sound like best friends that's why I was surprised to see you hadn't met.

I hate having my classes so spread out time-wise throughout the day.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I have my first one at 8:00am and then my next (and last) one at 3:30pm.
Ugh. I have no one to blame but myself. ****ty scheduling on my part.

See! Marissa = good planner.
That's the way it should be done!

I'm perfectly fine with having early classes... just as long as I'm done at a reasonable time. You've got it made, girl.

They are my BIGGEST phobia. I don't know why, but I'm scared to death of them... good luck :(




My super, super sexy English teacher gave me 20 of his poems to read over the weekend, ranging in topics from existence to sex to his dark Irish roots to fatherhood to his dad's death. I spent two hours giving him feedback but more importantly, talking to him about some of the most monumental events of his life and seeing him get emotional about it.


So. Beautiful. I am so obsessed with this man.

hippilil86 09-08-2009 07:43 PM

Letting a 5 year old paint my fingernails with her blue peel off nail polish probably wasn't the best idea. I think my nails are stained blue forever.

I need to stop biting my cuticles. My hands are starting to look horrible! It's not my nails, it's the cuticles and skin on the sides of my fingernails. Yikes.

I just got 2 new jobs, and a new apartment, with a new roommate. Now I think I'm ready to date someone. Where is he?

no joke. but still wildly creepy.

he should know better and if you cared about his career you wouldn't be talking about this stuff on a forum where everybody knows your facebook page and where you go to school. :shrug:

I think it's fine, as long as you don't mention names. It may be inappropriate for him to be doing that, but as long as it doesn't freak Dani out too much.

I think that there may be lots of Dani's and some may not be as welcoming of his insanely inappropriate behavior.

All I'll say is that it's not exactly as if this is shockingly original, and Dani, you're smart enough to know that. I know it might not actually be "such a big deal" but don't forget to view things from the outside.
It's too easy to go fast up and down the highway without seeing a goddamn thing.
This is your senior year and you only get one of them. Have fun.

"Oh, there's no warning
That takes you to the promised land
Hearts made of crystal
Crumble like castles of sand

Echoes of emotion
And the visions of a fool
Echoes of forbidden ground
And it's too good to be true -
Love is dangerous."

So today my Intro to BioTechnology class was okay. She did an overview on Chapter 1 and then we went over the Lab Safety stuff. After class my friend dropped me off at work so I could get my mom's car to get my labcoat for my BioTech and BioChem classes. Its fancy! Well as fancy as one can get with a white lab coat..lol Its not like a boxy one. Its form fitting to make you have a sillouette. The brand is "Grey's Anatomy" and its rather soft for a lab coat too. I cant wait to wear it! Oh and I also went to Target and got some Special K bars to eat on Thursday's cause I have classes from 9:30-4!!

I have atleast one FML moment a day, so this is where I will share them with my Ledgie friends.

Today, my boyfriend told me we needed to talk. Those four words together in a ny way, shape, or form almost never means something good, so I started freaking out.

BF: What's going on with you and that new guy?! You hang around him more than you hang around me. If there's anything serious going on, I want you to tell me now.

Me: :laugh:

BF: ...What?

Me: :laugh:

BF: -angrysadface-

Me: That's my cousin remember!?!?!?

BF: ....Oh.

Me: I guess you weren't listening all those times I was telling you about him coming to our school... wait, weren't you listening when I introduced him to you!?!!?

BF: ....:o

I then proceeded to give him one of those hugs where you leap into the person who's going to catch you's arms. (Which is quite hard because he's 6 foot something and I'm on the low end of 5, yet taller than Stevie minus platform boots.)

I know a lot of you will be thinking that he's a bad boyfriend and stuff, but he's really not. When you ramble as much as I do, it's hard to find anyone to listen to you! (Besides, my dad does this to my mom all the time! :lol:)

He's been a mentor figure for the past two years and people are widely aware of that. He's done the same thing with my writing and I don't see a problem with him asking for feedback in return :shrug:. The emotional aspect of it was unexpected-- and fine. I go to a relatively small private school where this type of stuff isn't normal, but isn't shunned, either. I have two teachers who I am very close with (the other is female)-- babysit their kids, get lunch on weekends, they've come to my house for dinner-- my parents are aware of it, my classmates are aware of it and the school is mildly aware of it. Even so, I am one Dani from California who goes to a private shool and has abnormally close student-teacher relationships. If someone wants to report it, have fun trying-- I think that is outrageously nosy and ridiculous, and I will be deleting some friends if anyone else considers this a legitimate concern. :D

I consider myself so, so lucky to be able to have these relationships. :shrug: Sorry it weirds you out.

Meh, don't be too pissed at us. We just don't want to see you getting hurt, THAT'S all!
I guess us Fleetwood Mac and Stevie fans are over-protective of each other. :nod:

I'm not pissed! I just consider today's conversation one of the top few of my life and yes, its inappropriate-- but there's also nothing really hidden about it. I don't know how to describe it. Maybe I just don't see it as such a big deal because I've always had these type of relationships with my teachers....

I was accepted into the college I've always wanted to attend the day I took my last AP test in May. I had been placed on the 'wait-list' in March and they finally called me and told me that I had been accepted!!.. But it was for Spring semester. I cried and cried that whole day because I felt like a loser for only getting accepted for Spring semester. Anyway I've been playing it off for months to family and friends that I'm so happy to have this semester off and I'm getting to save up money for college and I'm so happy, etc., but I still feel like a loser who will never leave home. I have a fear that it'll all be taken away from me any day now. Ah, crazy irrational thinking I'm sure.

JTIS because who's better supporting than fellow Ledgies :)

Can I ask what school you are talking about?

Yea, I'm going to the Univeristy of Georgia. The last few years it has been come increasingly harder to get in to but they tend to accept more students from the area now. I'm lucky to have gotten in I know that, I just wish I started when everyone else did.

Good luck with those applications!!!! I remember getting so upset filling those out.
