I'm feeling restless and impossible. I'm going to Mexico and not turning back.

Turning back kills you. Only look forward.

I'm never going to survive this semester unless I drink A LOT.

When I turn into a pillar of salt, you can use me to make margaritas.

"He saw life as the Big Game, and the whole of mankind was divided into two teams- Sala's Boys, and The Others. The stakes were fantastic and every play was vital- and although he watched with a nearly obsessive interest, he was very much the fan, shouting unheard advice in a crowd of unheard advisors and knowing all the while that nobody was paying any attention to him because he was not running the team and never would be. And like all fans he was frustrated by the knowledge that the best he could do, even in a pinch, would be to run onto the field and cause some kind of illegal trouble, then be hauled off by the guards while the crowd laughed."

I've noticed that when I come back from New York, I'm always happier than I was when I left. This weekend is the most extreme example of that statement.

I left for New York Friday around noon and met Kelly at Starbucks on 34th and 7th after some confusion. We caught up over a gingerbread latte and tea and headed uptown for dinner. We wandered into a diner that turned out to be the diner featured in Seinfeld. So after a delicious sandwich at the happened-upon famous establishment, we went to Braodway to catch "High Fidelity: The Musical." Besides that fact that Kelly's father paid for the tickets AND it was my first ever Broadway show, I have one thing to say about this play: There is a song called "Why Can't I Be Like The Boss?" Possibly the pinnacle of my existance.

On Saturday we walked around in ridiculously nice weather for December, saw the big Christas tree (well, I did. Kelly apparently didn't even realize we walked right past it.), up fifth ave and through Central Park. We went to the Met for a few hours and after a bit of wayward traveling, we met up with Jared! And we've discovered that Jared is freakishly nice. Well I guess I already knew that; I adore that kid. He's going to Israel for a year after graduation to write a book. He has a literary agent and everything. Sometimes I feel massively unaccomplished.

We went and got dinner and then caught a movie at the Loewe's in Times Square, random, I know, but it was fun and Kelly treated me. I missed that girl so much. She was such a good hostess and between her and her dad's generosity, I got to have an amazing weekend on a very small budget.

[music |We're From Barcelona- I'm From Barcelona]

I've learned some lessons this Thanksgiving Break:
a) It's probably cold outside. Wear pants.
b) Fat naked men are only funny when they wrestle, and even then it's crossing a line.
c) Never say things you don't mean.
d) Black Friday is scary, but free food is tasty.
e) Even though free food is tasty, do not play "how much pizza can I eat in 15 minutes" during your 15 minute break. it will not bode well for the rest of your shift.
f) If people are throwing a brick of ice around, keep your eye on the brick. If you look down to scratch your leg, bad things will happen.

I'm really really tired. And I'm not a good person. This is a bad combination.

Today was basically the worst day of my life for the following reasons:
*I had to wake up at 7 for a class.
*I had to spend FOUR HOURS in the newspaper office doing layout.
*My new favorite sweater turns out to be my least favorite sweater, angora fuzz EVERYWHERE.
*I GOT A BOOT ON MY CAR. I GOT A BOOT. ON MY CAR.
*I had to pay $130 to get the boot off of my car. In fake money. Arcadia student account money. psh.
*I nearly set myself on fire on the way home.
*I got bit by a dog.

Today was basically the best day of my life for the following reasons:
*Alex Timmons made me laugh so hard I cried.
*Alex Timmons volunteered to be Arcadia Student Spotlight so I could fill space in the paper.
*My brother has Guitar Hero 2.
*Me and Max have been talking a lot lately. I think he still has feelings for me. I still sort of hate him a little, but it's nice to know someone cares.
*After a quickly dissolved romance with a Led Zeppelin junkie, I already have a new gentleman caller. We'll see how fast I can mess this one up.
*Basically everyone thinks I'm the best writer ever.

I'm pretty much coming out even for the day. We'll see where the rest of the night takes me.

Don't want you hanging out with no one but me. [Oct. 31st, 2006|12:49 am]

Sometimes I forget Livejournal exists. And things happen, and clearly the entire livejournal community is waiting on the edge of their seats to see what's happened to me since last we spoke. Well, wait no longer...

Here's my life, as always, in list form:
1. I have decided that my all time perfect job would be to write for National Geographic. This is momentous because I had no idea what I wanted to write before. Just wanted to write.
2. I saw Ted Leo and the Pharmacists with Tom. They were awesome. Then they were followed by Death Cab, and tom and I mocked the lame ass frat boy turned scenesters that never heard of Ted Leo.
3. I really like working at Banana Republic.
4. I'm the star of the Communications Department. Just ask the Chairman, my advisor, who thinks I kick ass.
5. I went to a Halloween Party as Frank Sinatra and my hat blew off my head from the thrid floor balcony and we had to hike across a creek to retrieve it.
6. I'm probably moving on campus next semester with ALEX MOTHERFUCKING TIMMONS.
7. I can't wait to go to Penn State next weekend.
8. I met Bogie Lowenstein. (Think: Ten Things I Hate About You, "What's a Bogie Lowenstein?")

Also, out of sheer boredom, I decided to copy Vanessa circa two months ago. So here.
IMPORTANT PLAYLIST:
1. Six Months in a Leaky Boat- Ted Leo
2. Succexy- Metric
3. Best Imitation of Myself- Ben Folds
4. Bones- The Killers
5. Judy- The Pipettes
6. Plea From A Cat Named Virtue- The Weakerthans
7. Photobooth- Death Cab For Cutie
8. Woke Up New- The Mountain Goats
9. When the Deal Goes Down- Bob Dylan
10. Every Day- Buddy Holly

So yeah.
Happy Freaking Halloween.

New in the life of Kaitlyn:

Washington was awesome. I miss it. I loved the Mountain Goats show and seeing Vanessa and had the best day with Ursula at Eastern Market and lunch and talking at Metro Center for an hour watching 5 of my trains go by. I miss that girl like nobody's business.

Basically, I've committed a large portion of my current life to reading all of Chuck Palahniuk's books because they are amazing and culturally relevent and I think he could be God.

Class is dull, but I get to write a lot and I love editing Student Life. And LOST is on tomorrow.

oh and uh...

I HAVE A FERRET!!!!!!!!!!!! His name is Custer and I love him to death.

bllllllah.

I went to the Flyers game last night. They lost. But they won all three fights. In Philadelphia, that earns you a W.

Also, me and my mom are fighting, so all the more reason to go to Washington to see VANESSA DAWSON and URSULA JONSON. and the MOUNTAIN GOATS. I'm really very excited.

Also, there is a cute boy in every one of my classes and it's really hard to learn. OK, when did I become that girl?

Also, after changing titles three times, I am now and heretofore the Student Life Editor for the Tower. AKA, I'm a big deal.

Also, I should be on my way to class right now, and I'm posting on LJ.

Also, I had way too much coffee this morning and I am whacked out hyper. OK time to go learn Visual Cultures, baby. (aka, look at cute boy number 2.) weeeeeeeeeeee.
