So, I am going for it. By tomorrow night my hair color is going to be like Kate Walsh's (the lady above)... hmm I hope it looks good. It's time for a change!
 
 
 
 
 
 
I wrecked my car yesterday. I am so incredibly mad and disappointed in myself. It's horrible. I always prided myself on being a good driver and now I can no longer do that.
 
 
 
 
 
 
I am jealous of people that are in love. I am so lonely when it comes to the relationship department. I want someone to love me, cuddle me, and make me feel beautiful. What is wrong with this world? I will be one of those sad women that die, never experiencing love. I have come to this very conclusion.
 
 
 
 
 
 
There are days where I hate my life and wish I could just give it all up. Today is one of them.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Have you ever had one of those days where you feel like you are a complete fat cow; you know that feeling is utterly retarded, but whenever you look in the mirror all you see is the stomach bulge or your ass looks ten times bigger than normal. I tried on a pair of jeans that I had never wore before and they were tight. In the pics taken last night, I look massive! ugh. I hate days with low self-esteem. I am starving, but I already ate a wrap. Why am I continually overeating this week? I just really don't get it. Maybe it's the stress of finals, maybe not. I can only hope things progress and a surge of self-esteem comes.
 
 
 
 
 
 

are nasty! I wish my mom would stop being so cheap and just let me get the laser treatment at the dentist! ugh! I sure hope these things work!

ps Damn mac computer cameras!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Things are going well with me. Finally, I am not a worried wreck, like I usually am. The school year is dwindling down and I am quite happy about that. I don't have to take my psychology final since I will get a B regardless. I am about to go eat yet another satisfying meal at the dining hall, but at this point of starvation I would be happy eating anything. Currently, I am getting an A in chemistry lab, which makes me feel better about the pending practical that I shall be taking in a matter of days. The weather was perfect today. Even though I had to walk across campus barefoot, I am having a calm, cool and collected kind of day.

I am slightly tired and will probably crash early tonight. ohhh and before I forget I need to as Stina says "DO IT!"::::

Comment and I'll:

1. Tell you why I friended you.
2. Associate you with something - a song, a color, a photo, etc.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Associate you with a character.

I am a total freak. I googled "how to relieve stress" and now I am trying one of the tips on there. The list said to write down things that have been bothering me, my feelings and what not. Well, here they are...

1.I am freaking out. I put off a research paper that I have to do for comp and it's due Tuesday. This paper is extremely important, grade-wise. All my worries are wrapped around school-related things and money. My GPA is the crucial key to my happiness at the moment. I need it to be impressive and not just mediocre.

2. I am having trouble breathing because of this massive amount of stress.

3. My body sickens me at times. I feel like I will never get the body I want no matter how much I exercise or watch what I eat.

4. I need to find a job. The job needs to pay well.

5. I still have yet to see a doctor for my continuous bouts of depression. I keep trying to subdue this feeling of sadness but I don't know if I ever will without someone to tell my thoughts to.

6. I feel like I am losing my pizazz. I am losing my spark; my personality is bland, boring. I hate it. I am in a horrible mindset.
