In honor of the Bright Eyes concert that Drew, Kathryn and I are so excited about (May 27th!) I offer you, a picture of the man himself. CONOR OBERST!  Posted by Hello

By the way... this is Kathleen at 2am in my dorm last night. Ha ha.  Posted by Hello
I woke up to this message from Kathleen post-Fiji.

M0chaMag1c: heeeyy
Auto response from Surf N Waves 04: One. Two. Step.
M0chaMag1c returned at 2:19:53 AM.
M0chaMag1c: im nback
M0chaMag1c: nhaha one two stepp
M0chaMag1c: sweettt
M0chaMag1c: i pvoe you mary, youre my bitch
M0chaMag1c: love

M0chaMag1c: yea
M0chaMag1c: yay 4 firfsdat
M0chaMag1c: friday nites
M0chaMag1c: je suis crunk
M0chaMag1c: goodnigth mary!!!!!

* What I have learned from this message
1) I am Kathleen's bitch apparently (that's news to me)
2) Kathleen's english is horrible (granted there is a little bit of alcohol involved... just a little)
3) Contrarily, her French is perfect (crunck isn't a french word, however the rest of it is correct)
4) Our French fluency multiplies by 10 when we're tipsy... I don't know what that is. I don't even know why I speak french when I'm toasted, but I've come to realize my french is so much better with the addition of alcohol. Fact: French people drink wine with every meal... so maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe i'm just full of it. Who knows.

We love Fiji.  Posted by Hello

Oh the Conversations that arise everytime we go to D2...

Sarah: does that toilet flush for a long time?

Jerry: people without legs can ride bikes
Maddie: they're called wheelchairs

Mary: can you breathe a little quieter? you're kind of bothering me.
Mary: Jerry's doing a mating call because she's mad at Peter

Sarah: Let's watch Everybody Loves Raymond
Jerry: Everybody Hates Raymond

Mary: Stop making our sorority look bad!

Sarah: MTV did a special on rainforests today

Jerry: AP Biology is really hot
Maddie: I'd score a 5 on that

Maddie: can we play a song I can dance to? (begins singing the Hokie Pokie)
And it's OVER! (Well... at least until exams) Ha ha... I just can't win can I?

Horray! I like how I planned the end of this semester so well. Not gonna lie. I am patting myself on the back right now because of how awesome I have been in getting all my work done. I am not stressing out like others and I'm turning in my Anthropology paper (which by the way is 18 pages of AWESOMENESS) tomorrow when it's due May 6th? Why, because I didn't want to have to worry about it so I set a deadline for myself. Also, I was suppose to do an oral presentation, tomorrow in that class but I asked my teacher if I could switch and write the paper instead because I didn't feel I'd have enough time to cover all that I wanted to. He was kind of hesitant at first because he had worked the presentation schedule out and everything and it was already the end of the semester and he didn't want to change anything. But I made him a deal and said I would turn my paper in early. And I think it's fair that I'm turning it in tomorrow when I would have originally presented. I feel so relieved! I'm done with all my papers and projects for the semester. I also got an e-mail today from my Psyc professor saying that he had no negative feedback for my group's presentation because he thought it was great. So I am REALLY happy. I'm also not going to be staying up until the early hours of the morning tonight scrambling to finish my paper so that rocks.

Crunch time isn't so bad for me and for that I am so thankful. :D Good planning on my part though. I need to remember this when I'm flipping out the next few semesters. I've also decided to delay my London study abroad trip another two semesters. Personal reasons, and plus, Jerry's coming with me if I wait. Imagine us loose in Europe. ;). I have two exams left and then I'm outta here. I'm taking my Social Psychology test early (May 4th) just to get it out of the way. I do pretty well on those tests anyway so I figure it'll be better to take it early so I have time to study for my Bio exam (May 10th). I can't believe it's almost over... but at the same time, I can't wait.

Uh we're going to play a game called Andrew McMahon is hot (LITERALLY! Look at him sweating!) so every Thursday I'm posting a picture of him... ha ha just kidding. This Thursday ONLY. Soak it up (like his shirt). Sorry, I am the biggest geek ever. :P Posted by Hello
Today I am AWESOME! (but just today only)

Why you ask?

a) I turned in my Portfolio today which took a HUGE weight off my shoulders. 2 projects down, one more to go. Anthropology is due tomorrow and all I have to do is proof read and maybe add a paragraph or so. But I'm over my 15 page minimum and I have so much research to back up my paper which I'm dorkily excited about.

b) I fixed my computer (no thanks to Drew). My professor is cool and accidently sent the class a virus when he was trying to send us our Peer Grade sheets for our Psychology project. That was cool. I think I flipped out for about 5 hours when I couldn't open any of my word files or any files for that matter. No PDF files were opening. I was essentially screwed because my portfolio wouldn't open and neither would my anthropology paper. Anyway, who woulda thought that all I had to do was go to system restore and go back to another date when my computer was perfectly fine?! How awesome is that? I know this is probably like the easiest thing ever to do and all you CS majors are probably like gosh, that's the most basic thing you could ever do aside from running spybot. Ha ha do you like how I think I know what I'm talking about? Anyway, I was really proud of myself because I know NOTHING about computers and Drew even came over to help (he works at Best Buy fixing computers for people) and didn't know what to do. So essentially he was useless and I felt awesome because I could fix it and he coudln't. And I didn't lose any of my ridiculously long papers. I rock. Hard.

One down, two to go.

I presented my Psychology project today with two other group members. I think it went really well. Now all I have to do is, turn in my portfolio for Creative Writing on Thursday and then my Anthropology paper (15 + pages) on Friday. That's a handful... can you tell it's crunch time yet? Ha ha. The anthropololgy paper, I know sounds like a huge pain, but I started it early and I have 15 pages already and I'm still going. I feel like I'm going to end up writing a real ethnography for my work. The prospect is actually kind of exciting. I've been doing reasearch all semester and I feel like I actually have learned something and have something to say. I think he'll be impressed. On that note, seeing as how I have 4 grades in that class one test grade, participation, one paper and then the final huge paper that I'm working on now... everything is weighted pretty heavily. I'm sure I've mentioned this before. But... today I got my paper that I wrote on two ethnographies I studied back and I got an A! I think I may end up with an A in the class if the final paper I'm working on right now gets a good grade. I feel really good about it so hopefully that will all work out. But I was really excited when I got my paper back. I worked really hard on it and I'm not gonna lie, reading his comments were fun. They really made my day. On that note, I have a lot of writing to do and a lot of things to catch up on. Event though that 15 pager isn't due until May 6th, I just want to get it out of the way right now. So I may be tucked away for a few days, but in two weeks I'll be moving out. :D

And here it is, a red balloon, I let it go and think of you.

That's exactly how I'm feeling at the moment. Ready to just let go and move on... okay well maybe not ready to let go, prematurely letting go is more like it. The past couple of weeks have been pretty emotionally tumultuous and I think it's about time that ended.

My creative writing professor told me to read this story because it impacted her life. Upon the completion of it, I felt an impact on mine too.

This is a wonderfully written story. Tragic, but a must read none the less. It's a PDF file, it's on it's side but at the top right corner you can click the arrow on the left to change that. It's a bit lengthy... 9 pages which really isn't that long for a short story, but if you have time, give it a read.

*Funny because I woke up this morning and had a message on my wall from Jew-Unit who said the same thing... am I sensing a 2004-2004 Board Reunion coming up? I vote yes.
Things that made me smile today:

- My mom calling me during Anthropology class leaving a message saying it was "urgent." Me calling back and realizing that "urgent" really means her asking me if I will accompany her to Myrtle Beach for some business matters a few days after I get home from Tech.

- Anthropology ending early today and the news from our prof saying that it would be ending early from here on out. SWEET

- Social Psyc ending early today as well!

- Kathryn sending me a package full of awesomeness in the mail today. This includes a "basket weaving card" with ideas for shirts to wear in New York... ex: "No I do not want a fake Louis Vuitton bag, gracias!" Ha ha... But that's not all, this box came with The Arcade Fire's "Funeral" CD (which I am listening to right now and loving), The Kings of Leon "Aha Shake Heartbreak" CD, and Simon & Garfunkle, and The O.C. Mix One... Is she not the bestest friend ever or what?! I cannot wait until my New York trip with her! :D

- My advisor being awesome and force adding me into a Psyc class I wanted and my favorite professor of this semester saying that he was going to be teaching the class. SWEETNESS!

- The velvet blazer I got to wear today because the weather was perfect for it. (Yes, it snowed in Blacksburg yesterday).

Hope you're having a good one.

This is Jerry's Response to my Away Message:

Auto response from Surf N Waves 04: If you like the way I'm thinking, baby wink at it. ;-)
LiLjKiM703: wink wink

::Shameless Advertising::
Away message courtesy of Jason Mraz's song "Geek in the Pink" coming out on his sophomore album which hits the shelves in mid to late July so ee'rbody grab a copy when it comes out. It will not disappoint, I promise! And if it does... you can come beat me up.
It's a love affair (with my homework) on a quiet Sunday afternoon.

This weekend was probably one of the best weekends I've ever here at Virginia Tech. Kathleen came out with me twice this weekend and we had a good time. From here on out, it will be crunch time. I have three projects due next week and then I have exams. It's a pirates life for me eh? It's rough, but that just comes with the end of the semester. I cannot wait until summer. I feel kind of useless though because I won't be interning or working... I'll be gone so much it would be impossible to keep a job or find someone willing to give me many weeks off just to go on vacation. I'm not complaining, I'm really psyched about this summer... I just wish I could be productive. Who wants to give me a job as editor of an online magazine or something? Maybe I could write some psychology articles? I don't know... it's probably not going to happen. I'll just have to feel useless. I'm going to New York in less than three weeks. At least I think it's less than three weeks. I feel like I'm in a different world when I'm in school. I'm in my own little bubble, I don't really know what goes on outside of this campus. I'll have to work on that. My Creative Writing Professor for the Short Story segment of the class posted one of her short stories (which you can read if you click here). I think it's great. It's really interesting to get into the mind of your professors. It's a PDF file so I hope you guys have Adobe. I really liked the story. My favorite line was "There was beauty to the parallel that intrigued me; magic had become reality. " I don'tknow why I felt the need to share all of this, but now that it's out there, I hope it means something to someone who comes across this page.

Moving along, I think I have a cold. So that makes this the 8th time I've been sick here at school? I don't think I've been sick eight times in my life... okay that's an exaggeration, but I hate how there's something about this place that lowers my immunity to things. Maybe it's all the stress or the anticipated stress. I have three big projects that I'm working on. My Anthropology class is really challenging me. My professor, though a great one, and a very fair man, just doesn't like to grade things so he gives us one test for the whole semester, there is no exam, instead there was a semester long project that we have to present. I chose to present my research in the form of a really long paper. So I'm not really looking forward to that. I like that there isn't a lot of busy work in that class, but I hate how everything is weighed so heavily. My test grade in that class which is approximately 45% of my grade was made up of that one test and that's it. Needless to say, I did well on this test... but it just adds so much stress knowing that if you do badly on something, your grade is screwed. I wish there wasn't a grading scale and everything was just pass/fail. Oh well... I guess that's just the way it goes... it's incentive to perform well right?

Okay, well I've been going on and on for far too long about insignificant things, I hope you guys are enjoying your quiet Sunday afternoon... I'm enjoying mine indoors... where it's not snowing. Gotta love Blacksburg weather right? When does it ever snow in late April? Okay well, it looks like it's back to work for Mary....

This shirt has become infamous on campus... People scream "dysentery mary!" when I go to parties, even if I'm not wearing the shirt. I'm not sure how I feel about this yet. :P Ha ha...

Quite possibly the coolest thing since sliced bread...
It will only be cool if the right people wear it though, I imagine a bunch of d-bags walking around with a "holla at yo boy" type message by their crotch which would be painfully uncool. I would laugh in their faces, I'm sure you would too.

Once I went to a party and I saw a stupid tool with a thing that you have to constantly twirl in the air and if you twirled it fast enough it would work kinda like this scrolling belt buckle thing here, only this was hand held and it said something uber stupid like "XXX Girls XXX" yeah... it made me want to part the crowd like moses parted the waters and declare my undying love for him... Except not. He just looked like a d-bag.

Smooth sailing from here on out! :D

- Not only was it 78 degrees outside (just a few degrees above my ideal), but today marked the last of my hellish consecutive Test/Quiz combo days at the Math Emporium until finals.

- Zach who has been MIA for flippin 2 weeks randomly appeared in my room tonight to inform me that yes, he is alive and well... and to quote he also said, "I am going to chain Terri Bourdon to the back of my bicycle and drag her around campus" (For those of you who don't know Terri Bourdon, she is the Math Empo lady, and yes she is a nice woman, however she is associated with the math empo and our crappy tests... therefore, she has made it to the top of every VT student's hate list at one point during their collegiate carreers. This is now her time to shine during mine and Zach's.

- SoCo is going to be here tomorrow night. Yes, once again Andrew McMahon and Mary shall unite. Sweet it shall be.

- Earth Day is Thursday (even though it's really Friday) VT celebrates on Thursday. Yes, I have my shirt and I'm going to rock it like it's never been rocked before. Question is... do you have yours? If not you can pick one up on the drillfield on your way to classes. Be sure you get one early, they're limited and will sell out quick because they are hands down kick ass.

- And well then comes Friday... and what's not to love about Friday?

Speaking of not loving things... I gave blood today because the American Red Cross called last week and said there was a huge blood shortage in this area and they really needed doners. Since I'm all about saving lives... I happily signed up. It doesn't hurt, and if the situation were reversed, I'd want somebody to do the same for me. So anyway, I go to the Doner center today downtown and I've been there before to give blood and everytime, I've had a good experience, nothing went wrong. Well today was a different story. The person to took my blood inserted the needle incorrectly. I always give blood from my left arm and never has there been a problem. There was a big vein, even I could feel it... well, she missed it, took the needle out and reinserted, said my vein "moved" and missed again. Finally, she got it in so I thought the worst was over. Well a minute or two into the whole procedure, the blood stopped flowing, so she had to get someone else to come over and for the next eight minutes they kept moving the needle inside my vein and kept twisting it. It hurt so bad. I really wanted somebody to hold my hand. I have never felt that uncomfortable before in my life. They had two people watching me until I filled the bag which took approximately 10 minutes. I've been able to fill the big in less than 8 without having people move needles every which way inside me so I'm wondering why today was any different. Oh well, the worst is over, for real now... and I'm glad that I could saves some lives today even though it hurt. I figure, the people who need the blood are probably hurting a lot more than I did when I was sitting in that chair so... I'm not going to let a bad experience get to me. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy the rest of your week, it's going to be gorgeous here, which is rare for Blacksburg so soak it up!

One day you'll see her and you'll know what I mean.
Take her of leave her she will still be the same.
She'll not try to buy you with her time.
But nothing's the same, as you will see when she's gone.

You dream of colors that have never been made,
You imagine songs that have never been played.
They will try to buy you and your mind.

Links of the day a la Mary (that's me!)

Cereality! What an awesome concept... we need one of these here at VT. I'm not a big fan of cereal because I am lactose (what's the point of eating cereal without milk?), but I'm not going to lie... it would hands down KICK ASS if there was one of these here or in my hometown for that matter. It's sleek, clean, and simple and, for the lactose people like myself... there is a cafe! I can do cafes! What a concept!

For you Artsy Fartsy Quasi Nerds - I offer you a link to Data Art... where you fill out a questionnaire and they take your results and create a piece of art in the form of abstract expressionism... I make it sound really uncool, because I have a way of doing that, but I promise you it's really neat and you should definately go and check it out. It may take 30 seconds or so for the final product (the art) to show up. But I assure you, it's worth waiting to see.

70 degrees! Hope you're enjoying your day!
You heard it HERE first.

Since I don't feel like writing my Anthropology paper due tomorrow morning... I'll tell you guys all about Soundfest and The Juliana Theory instead!

Well last night was Soundfest... an annual event in which Virginia Tech invites many bands to come and show the student body that we are indeed loved by the people who run Buruss. It was free, which is already a plus. It was from 4- 11pm but I only wanted to see Hot Rod Circuit and The Juliana Theory so I didn't go at 4 since I knew they would playing at the end. I missed Murder by Death who I hear is pretty good... but oh well, I'm sure they'll be back. Anyway Hot Rod Circuit was pretty good... I always feel bad watching these bands play because they look better in girl pants then I do. The Juliana Theory was amazing. We were first row to the right of the stage. Brett Detar came and sang to us a few times which was pretty awesome... not gonna lie. He's a hottie, and he does this eyebrow raise/wink/smile combo all the time so Jerry and I pretty much fainted and died five times when he came and did that to us. They sang "Into the Dark" and that made me really happy. I could have left right then and been satisfied. Did I mention that Brett Detar is really sexy? He had this whole unconventionally hot Mick Jagger thing going on. It really worked for him. He has a great voice too, but I'm sure you know that. We got to meet him after the show because that's just how we do, and got some pictures taken with him. I really dug his hair, it was really cool for lack of a better word. He's a really really nice guy, AND he smells good... illegally good. He is always smiling, just looking at him made me happy. Just an all around great person. It was a great concert.

Jerry's brother Eric (who is going to UVA sucks next year) came to visit and came to the concert with us. He had a really good time and decided he wanted to come to Tech because they love their students here... Anyway, we took him to a party afterwards (it was cool because we had a car so we didn't have to wait for a DD to come). Little Eric Kim (who's actually taller than me) drank a lot. He saw Aristocrat and said "I love this stuff," to which I responded, never drink Aristocrat again. It's cheap gross rubbing alcohol... yuck. So he had a cup of Sprite and Everclear instead. I had Sprite, Everclear and Rum which is a really good combination. Sarah was at the Party, it was Adrian's townhouse so it was great becuase it was basically all of our friends just hanging out having a good time. They had really good beverages... Eric agreed. Jerry was DD for the night and drove back to campus and on the way back we got the urge to sing 50 nifty United States... I felt like such a loser, but Jerry reminded me this morning that she was sober and singing that song so it made me feel a little better. When we got back to campus, we went to DX - it's become tradition now... :P Now I think Eric regrets his UVA acceptance decision. I mean clearly everyone wants to be a Hokie.

And now... I should probably write my Anthropology paper about the Apendix of the book I had to read. Yes I read the whole book and my paper is only on the 3 pages at the end. Thanks life!

Jokes a la Zack of Juxta...

Two peanuts are walking in an alley... one was a salted.

Two guys walked into a bar, the third one ducked.

Ha ha... only he could pull that off.
Last night definatly brough an end to the worst week ever

- I went to Juxta-Kwon-Do with my Sigs... and it was illegal how hot their show was. I think I died when Eric took the stage and sang that Boys II Men song... he has such an amazing voice... so does Zach, well pretty much all of them have amazing voices. They are such funny charismatic guys. We decided they were a lot hotter when they sang. They also did an encore song which was AMAZING. They did a rap sequence thing - costumes and everything! Yeah acapella rap! You heard it here first. This one guy (I don't know his name) did Usher's Yeah... during this little rap sequence... and it was so good. I love these guys. Rumor has it that Eric will be partying at Foxridge tonight. :P

- After Juxta, the Sigs had a ladies night at Phi Kappa Tau... and those guys are great. They're really nice. It was a themed party but of course only like 4 people showed up dressed up and none of the Sigs were those 4 people. :D Anyway there were also some sketch guys there (when aren't there sketch guys?) but... it was funny because this guy came up to me and was like "Hey I think there's something wrong with me, could you check me out?" Sarah was right behind me when he said that and just laughed in his face. It was quite possibly the worst pick up line I've ever heard in my life. Also, there was a guy who was trying to dance with me I guess... and Jerry was facing me and saw him coming up behind me looking really sketch and her eyes widened and then she shrieked really loudly, everyone turned around... ha ha. I think it was the best thing ever. PS: I got away! Go me.

- On the way back to Phi Kappa Tau, we met up with Chris and Don and they walked us back... on our way back on South Main Street, Don kept telling me how he wasn't doing well in Psyc and really needed help since I am a Psyc major... anyway as he's asking for help, he's not watching where he's going and walks right into a fire hydrant and it hits him right in the groin. He just stood there for a second and fell over. It was the funniest thing I have EVER seen. Right when he falls over a cop drives by really slowly and we were all like GET UP or else she's gonna think you're drunk and arrest you so he got up and tried to walk in a straight line but he was in so much pain. I felt bad for him. After that fiasco, we decided we all wanted to go to DX. So, as we're walking to DX... I told Don he should totally keep up with the tradition of nightly shrubbery diving so that we could get pictures... Anyway, Don decides to take my advice and he jumps into the closest bush, only it turned out to be a thorn bush and he fell through it! He was laying on the ground - bush split in half, screaming "Ow." I felt so bad, I am partially to blame, but a) VT really shouldn't have thorn bushes anywhere so that this kind of stuff doesn't happen b) Don really should have made sure it was a safe bush before jumping in it. So anyway, Chris and I tried to get him out, but I'm pretty much useless so a group of guys walked by and decided to help us. I felt so bad for Don, he was screaming the whole way he was getting pulled out and I felt bad for the nice guys that helped because they were covered in thorns too and it hurt. Even though that really sucked for Don, Chris got some pretty rad pictures of it all.

Today's happiness (for the first time this week)

- It was decent outside today, with a high of 63
- I played tennis today
* My Urban Outfitters catalogue came today... and the boys in it... oh my GOSH the boys in it made me happy. The girls clothing was kind of a let down... but Summer's line for the guys is hot. I liked they way they were dressed. A lot. :P
Josh is mad that I ditched him as a Tennis partner today...

Auto response from Surf N Waves 04: Jouer au tennis.
MoB Squad VBall: sans moi?

Je suis desolee...

This is the design of the Earth Day shirts for this year. *Click the picture to magically enlarge* Yes, your eyes aren't deceiving you - that's THE GIVING TREE... as in the one from the Shel Silverstein story. Ah I love it, and it comes in a variety of great colors. Also, this is printed on American Apparel t-shirts which means that it is sweatshop free. Also, these shirts are insanely comfortable... this is no regular cotton shirt... if you own an American Apparel shirt, you know how awesome it is. So take my word for it and buy shirts for $12 next week. All of us will have them and the proceeds go to a good cause. Did I mention this will be the most comfortable shirt you will ever own? These shirts will shrink a size in the wash so be sure to buy a size larger than you normally are... or check out the sizing charts below.

Currently drowning in Oberst

if you could change your days
arranging them in some sweet new sequence
like any new arrangement is going to make a difference
because it is the moment that you are living in
and not the one that follows that makes the mess you are cleaning in your head
and time still drags you forward
although you keep resisting
because you know it is what you leave behind
you will soon start missing and the people you once counted on
says its all depending on how you act and how you treat yourself
and that is not very well
