. This is my beautifulll new purse. My sister and I went shopping yesterday, swung by the Coach store and I picked up the pictured purse and scarf, and my sister grabbed a new Op Art shoulder bag... for 40% off. Apparently the Carly shoulder bags were recalled for a quality issue--my sister's has begun to fray a bit at the top, so they offered to either give her a new bag for free, or let her keep her Carly and take 40% off a new purse. She decided on the second option.

Meanwhile, I lovelovelove my bag. It's gorgeous. I'm planning to go back tomorrow though to see their new collection (which was brought out the day after I bought my bag) because I'm looking for a black and white scarf, and they only had one when I was there.

I got 12 hours of sleep last night, and I still feel a bit tired. I got two shots the other night, a tetanus booster and the third Gardasil shot, one in each arm, so my arms were horribly sore all day yesterday. Plus I got about 5 hours of sleep the night before last and woke up at 8:30 AM. This all added together meant that I felt like *crap* all day. I was wondering if I was getting sick, and I was so tired I could barely keep my eyes open. I wanted to go to bed at about 8:00 PM, lol, but I lasted until 11:00 and then conked out. Woke up at 5:00 AM, went back to bed, and woke up again around 9:30 when my alarm went off. I was planning to get up by 10:00, but then my kitty came and laid down with me, so I couldn't get up then, lol. I finally dragged myself away from him at 11:00. I just think I could spend hours petting cats. I really do. I wuv their little noses, and their paws, and their their ears! Oh goodness. I'm definitely going to be a crazy cat lady.

There are a few things I really need to get done. FIrst of all, I'd like to get another chapter or two of PWF. And secondly, I need to get my room straightened up and organized. Thankfully, I went through a bunch of my clothes a few months ago when Heather moved out because we had to divide up our stuff. I went through it again a few days ago and pulled out another three or so tops. This still means that I have no room whatsoever, but since Heather's not living here anymore, I've taken over her closet. I'm storing all of my coats/jackets/hoodies in there, and I may move some more things over if necessary. Right now, I need to buy some more hangers.

I just need to get organized, really. Everything is sort of thrown somewhere, my dresser drawers don't always close because they're too full. I just have too much stuff, and it's time to throw things out. I am determined to do this before I go back to college. Classes start again on the 19th, and goshdangit I will have everything in order by then.

Ah, finally! A review someone left on Playing With Fire just completely sparked my curiosity and got the ball rolling again, and a new chapter should be up tomorrow. And another one hopefully soon after that. Unless I decide to combine the two (because the first one is a bit dull, if you ask me), in which case it may be a bit longer. But seriously, I am just going to town with it. I already reposted all of the first seven (six?) chapters with minor edits in the wording of some things, just little things that bothered me later, and I only have one class tomorrow so I should have time to get up the next chapter then.

I just feel better that I have gotten things rolling again. Ahh, so relieved. So be watching out for that soon.

So I went to meet my teacher at 8:45 this morning in the Student Union, right? And I get breakfast and go sit down at a table where I can keep an eye on the entrance from the outside, thinking that's where she'll come in. Well, I get there about 10 minutes early, so I sit down and there's this guy sitting about two tables over waiting for his food, and we have a direct line of vision to each other. And we keep making eye contact and looking away and looking back, and it's awkward but also exciting, and I smile a bit, and basically we're eyeing each other for like ten minutes. Then his food number gets called, so he goes to grab the plate and then he doesn't sit back down where he was. He starts walking toward me. And when he's about five feet away, opening his mouth to talk, and we're making eye contact, my teacher pops up from the left entrance from the lounge (ten minutes late, by the way). "Hey Tiffany! I am so sorry I'm late, I was just on the phone with someone from work and I *could not* get off the phone with them!" And I look at her, and she pulls out a chair, and I look back at this guy, and I make eye contact again and sorta smile ruefully, and he changes course and goes to the lounge to sit down, but he's sorta glancing at me as he walks away.

So then I talk to my teacher for half an hour, and then our class starts in fifteen minutes, and so since she was late she pulls me along with her to run a few errands so we can keep talking and then head to class. And this guy was still there when I left.

Aaaa! I hate that. I will absolutely never know what would have happened if she had shown up five minutes later. Did I totally misread him and he wasn't interested at all? Would we have talked and then walked off without names or numbers? Would he have become a friend? More? I will never know. And I'm SO frustrated with that. I just really hate missed opportunities, you know?

But, you know, if it was meant to happen, then it still will. And if not, then it wasn't important anyway.

And I'm *excited*! A little bit nervous, but mostly excited. This is normal, but it's weird. I'm almost just waiting for the overwhelming anxiety and panic of ohmygodI'mleavingandthingsarechanginganditwillneverbethesameagainholycrap to kick in. But maybe it won't?! Here's hoping!

Things I need to do today:
1) Psychologist appointment at 1:00
2) Eyebrow wax
3) Pack all my shirts into boxes
4) Pack my makeup
5) Make a list of the makeup I'm low on, and place the order
6) Pack my hair items
7) Also jewelry and accessories--purses, bags, belts, etc
8) Pack my chargers--car, phone, camera, iPod
9) Don't forget photo albums and frames, DVDs, water bottles, and small, misc items like my lavender pillow spray, PiNK dogs (if I feel like freaking out my roommate), collaging box, Illusions book, perfumes, etc.
10) Organize my CDs into a folder and pack said folder
11) Clean up litter box and cat food area
12) Shower, Nair, shave (yes both, for some reason, my legs freak out if I don't use Nair before I shave and get red and razor burned)
13) Choose an outfit for move in day tomorrow
14) Reorganize my purse
15) Run all loads of laundry

I think that's it. Oh, and watch Gilmore and relax, and go to bed by 11:00 pm. Or 10:00, if I'm feelin' crazy.

Has anyone ever ordered clothing online? I never have before because there was always that fear of "what if I get the wrong size or it doesn't look good on or it's not comfortable?" But Target is not getting their rain boots in until September, and we've had a recent wave of rain for the past week (seriously, I don't think the sun has come out once.... so not nearly as bad as the Great Month Long Oklahoman Flood of June/Early July, but still, pretty significant. My sister was looking at their rainboots selection online, and there were a bunch of cute ones. She's planning to order some this week, but I'm still on the fence. I'm a pretty consistent 7 1/2, but... still. Surely I can wait two weeks for them to get the boots in, right?

Eh, and anyway, according to the 7 day forecast, it's clearing up after today. 30% chance tomorrow, and a temp of 81... which means perfect move in day! And then there's nothing higher than 30% the rest of the week. So oh well. I'll wait.

I've discovered recently, though, that I have a boot problem. I mean, it fluctuates, you know? It was shirts and tops for a long while, then it kind of morphed into simple tee shirts, then jeans for about a week, and now it's on to boots. Any kind of boot. I bought these black boots that come about halfway up my shin, and they're cute! And, most importantly, they don't have a heel. I've never had boots without a heel, so I am fascinated by this concept. This means I can wear them across campus and still look cute! They were Candies, so they were like $80, but they were marked down to $55, which still seemed a bit steep for someone who's used to paying $30 or less for any pair of shoes, but I figure the use I'll get out of them will even it out. Plus, I was at Target and they have these Pocahontas boots. Tan, no heel boots with fringe on the side. I got those too. I mean, again, I can wear them to class! And have been wearing them nonstop since I got them a few days ago. Pathetic, I know.

EDIT: By the way, I am absolutely in love with this story on ff.net, Finding the Boy by FeistyFeist. Completely original, great characterization, wonderful pacing and suspension. Definitely nothing like anything I've ever seen before over there. I would definitely check it out...

What is your LiveJournal username? How did you come up with it?
I_Fell_So_Fast, which, you know, I hate because I'm not a fan of underscores. I believe it came from some quote or something that I liked... and then when I started dating Kyle it seemed appropriate.

Have you renamed before? If so, what were your old names? If you haven't renamed, what names would you want to rename to?
No, I haven't. And I have no idea... I'm horrible at coming up with names. Seriously.

How much does your userinfo say about you?
Is that my little profile thing? Because if so, I think it says a lot. It's a long list of random things about me.

How long have you been on LiveJournal?
Oo goodness... two years?

What is the longest amount of time you've gone without posting?
Probably a couple of months

On average, how many entries do you post per day? (Divide how many total entries you have by how many days you've been on LJ)
No dividing, but probably around once a week. I add more than that sometimes, and less than that sometimes, but it probably evens out...

What are your posts normally about?
My life, pretty much. Lots of them are about drama. And writing.

Is your LiveJournal friends only? Why or why not?
I don't think the LJ itself is, but the majority if the entries are.

Does your LiveJournal have an actual title or are you merely USER @ LiveJournal?
I don't know how to change that, so it's just my user.

How long do you see yourself staying on LiveJournal?
Probably another year or so

How many people are on your friendslist, not counting private journals, media journals, etc?
What's a private journal? I don't think I have very many, like five or six?

Why do you choose to add a person to your friendslist?
Typically just because I saw them around ff.net...

Is your friends list an actual list of people you consider friends, or more of a reading list?
Reading list, I suppose? In that I don't know any of them outside of the internet...

How often do you read your friendslist?
Every time I get on LJ

Do you use filters when viewing your friendslist?
What's a filter?

How much do you talk to people on your friendslist off of LiveJournal?
Well, not often... occasionally at ff.net, if that counts...

Do you do friends cuts? Why or why not?
No, because I don't know what that is or how to do it...

Do you regularly participate in friending memes? If not, how do you normally find people to friend?
What's a meme!? I thought that was a survey...

How often do you add new friends to your friendslist?
Pretty much never.

Do your friends have to have things in common with you?

Do you mostly use icons made by yourself or by others?
Others. I don't know how to make them myself. Lol.

Do you have your own icon community? How often do you post in it?

How often do you check fandom communities for new posts?
... What's a fandom community? Is that like the Matt Dillon thing? I don't think I'm even a part of any of those, except the Matt Dillon one, and I have that set to show up on my friends list.

Do you contribute to fandom? If so, by way of what?

Have you ever read (or been featured on) fandom_wank?
... What?

What is one thing you wish you could change about fandom?

I don't know much.

Hm, someone want to explain to me how to make a cut?

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line(s) from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: No more than one entry per band (uhm didn't follow this one either...)
Step 4: Let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 5: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly

1. I wanted you to know that I love the way you laugh / I want to hold you high and steal your pain away

2. There's a time and place for everything / There's a reason why certain people meet / There's a destination for everyone / What's the explanation when we're done?

3. Right now I really don't care if I'm alone or if I got you sitting there / Woah no, look I've done it again / Man I should think about it before I say anything / 1, 2, 3, 4, looks like I'm alone again...

4. Close your eyes, make a wish that this could last forever / If only you could stay with me now / So tell me what it is that keeps us from each other now / Yeahh it's comin 'to get me, you're under my skin

5. She's taking her time making up the reasons to justify all the hurt inside / Guess she knows from the smiles and the look in their eyes / Everyone's got a theory about the bitter one / They're saying mommy never loved her much and daddy never keeps in touch / That's why she shies away from human affection

6. I tried to be perfect but nothing was worth it / I don't believe it makes me real / I thought it would be easy but no one believes me

7. Just gimme the light / yea yea

8. Sleepin' through the evening singing dreams inside my head / I'm heading out, I've got some ends who say care and they just might / I'll run away with you if things don't go as planned / Plannin' big could be a gamble, I've already rolled the dice

9. Never made it as a wise man / I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing

10. Lookin' for something I've never seen / Alone and I'm in between the place that I'm from and the place that I'm in / A city I've never been / I've found a friend or should I say a foe / Said there's a few things you should know / We don't want you to see we come and we go, here to take on tomorrow

11. Baby, please try to forgive me / Stay here, don't put out the glow / Hold me now, don't bother / If every minute it makes me weaker you can save me / From the man that I've become

12. I don't know what he does to make you cry / But I'll there to make you smile / I don't have a fancy car / To get to you I'd walk a thousand miles

13. Beautiful dawn lights up the shore for me / There is nothing else in the world I'd rather wake up and see with you / Beautiful dawn, I'm just chasing time again / Thought I would die a lonely man in endless night

14. Finally got over that song of ours, stopped chasing little red sports cars / To check the license plates and I quit driving by your place

15. This time, this place, misused mistakes / Too long, too late / Who was I to make you wait?

16. Sunday morning rain is fallin' / Steal some covers, share some skin / Clouds are shrouding us in moments unforgettable

17. Julie was a long way from home / She could make alone look pretty / Her attitude made her part of the landscape / Riding her bike through alphabet city / She likes to party in the backseat under the bridge on the Brooklyn side / Smokin' cigarettes in the afterglow, taking bets that the sun won't rise

18. I was born in a small town / And I live in a small town / Probably die in a small town

19. Aight ready? / Come on man it's what I do / Mike check mike check

20. The moon is shining bright / The mood is feeling right / I'll kiss you on your neck / People will stare but we won't care

21. Prison gates won't open up for me / On these hands and knees I'm crawling / I reach for you / I'm terrified of these four walls / These iron bars can't hold my soul

22. I never really knew that she could dance like this / She make a man wanna speak Spanish / Como se llama? (si) Bonita (si) Mi casa? Su casa?

23. Uh huh yeahh / I've known a few guys who thought they were pretty smart / But you've got bein' right down to an art / You think you're a genius / You drive me up the wall

24. She was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene / I said don't mind, but what do you mean I am the one?

25. I was so high I did not recognize the fire burning in her eyes / The chaos that controlled my mind / Whispered goodbye as she got on a plane / Never to return again, but always in my heart

26. Somewhere there's speaking, it's already coming in / Oh it's rising at the back of your mind / You never could get it unless you were fed it / Now you're here and you don't know why / But under skinned knees and skid marks / Past the places where you used to learn / You howl and listen / Listen for the echoes of angels that won't return

27. Broken this fragile thing now and I can't, I can't pick up the pieces / And I've thrown my words all around but I can't, I can't give you a reason

28. I like where we are when we drive in your car / I like where we are here / Cause our lips can touch and our cheeks can brush / Our lips can touch here

29. You wanna know what we say in the club? / A bay bay (heh, may have given that one away)

30. We'll do it all, everything, on our own / We don't need anything or anyone / If I lay here, if I just lay here / Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

31. Maybe when the room is empty / Maybe when the bottle's full / Maybe when the tour gets broke down love can break in / Maybe when I'm done with thinking / Maybe you can think me whole / Maybe when I'm done with endings / This can begin

32. I missed you so much that I begged you to fly in and see me / You must have broke down because you finally said that you would / But now that you're here I just feel like I'm constantly dreaming

33. Beauty queen of only eighteen / She had some trouble with herself / He was always there to help her / She always belonged to someone else

34. Baby girl, what's your name? / Let me talk to you / Let me buy you a drank

35. Here we go / Get on the floor / Woah I'm the party starter / You might have a good time but we party harder

36. Well she's not bleeding on the ballroom floor just for the attention / Because that's just ridiculously on / Well she sure is going to get it / Here's the setting: fashion magazines line the walls / Now the walls line the bullet holes

37. If you could only see the way she loves me / Then maybe you would understand why I feel this way about our love and what I must do / If you could only see how blue her eyes can be when she says, when she says she loves me

38. Heaven knows that you're with me now / Heaven knows that you're here / I feel your breath all around me now / And all the pain disappears

39. I woke up in New York City from asleep behind the wheel / caught a train to Poughkeepsie and time stood still / She wrote me a letter from San Diego to qualify her luck / These flights connect through to Arizona but I think I'll stay stuck

40. Those are all very beautiful words but actions speak louder / In case you haven't heard, I'm all alone while you're out on the town, drinking with your friends / You can say all these beautiful things but they don't mean nothing, no they don't mean a word / Gotta back it up, but you keep backing down / Tell me how this ends

41. I know there's something in the wake of your smile / I get a notion from the look in your eyes / You've built a love but that love falls apart / A little piece of heaven turns to dark

42. So little time, so little time / So frustrated / So little joy, so little joy / It's complicated

43. Back me down from backing up / Hold your breath now, it's stacking up / Etched with marks but I can deal / You're the problem and you can't feel

44. Between the future and the past tense / Lies the present in the distance / So you think we're never coming back / Scoring points for passion and persistence

45. You lookin' just a little too hard at me / Standin' just a little too close to me / You sayin' not quite enough to me / You sippin' just a little too slow for me

46. Sick and tired of this world / There's no one here / Trippin' over myself / Goin' nowhere

47. Party like a rock, party like a rockstar (can you guess?)

48. Toot that thang up mommie make it roll / Once you pop pop lock it for me get low (forgive me for this one... lol, it was a momentary lapse in music judgment)

49. Cigars in the summertime under the sky by the light / I can feel you read my mind / I can see it in your eyes / Under the moon as it plays, like music every line

50. Circlin' your head / Contemplating everything you ever said / Now I see the truth, I got doubt / A different motive in your eyes and now I'm out / See you later / I see your fantasy / You want to make it a reality paved in gold
