so close

Adrianne here. Newly 19. First, thank you all for the nice and wonderful and kind birthday wishes. Each of them made me smile :)


My birthday went pretty well, despite trying to clean my room at home to accomodate all of my stuff from here at school. I spent most of my birthday with my family and family friends which was simple and sweet. My and my big sis finally got to club together and we had a great time although I was probably the youngest person in the club ;) Spent a great afternoon with some wonderful people Sunday, and I'm getting more and more ready for summer.


I'm so closed to the end of school, my last exam is on Thursday and I will be pulling out of Charlotte as sooooooooooooooooooooon as I get out of my exam. I feel like there is nothing really here keeping me, but I am excited about a magazine me and a friend will be doing next year for our Black Student Union, pretty excited about that. It's kinda weird having all my stuff split between two places, i'm missing alot of my undies...I hope I left them at home this weekend.


Can't wait for the Glow in the Dark Tour, it's coming to Raleigh Friday!!!! I'm beyond excited, every review I read and hear from my friends who have already gone seems out of this world.


Today I got phone calls from Gayle King, Stevie Wonder, and Barack Obama himself. I don't even remember giving the campain my cell, but apparently I did, which was a bad decision. I tried to early vote last week, but didn't have my school ID...thus couldn't vote, bc I'm registered at home and my school ID would be proof of my residence in Charlotte. Tried to go today with my school ID, but they told me no. On the actual day I have to vote in my precinct, and I forgot to do an absentee ballot while I was home. Which stinks. I really feel bad...I'm one of those people who believes every single vote counts. It really does when you think about it. O well. Maybe I'll call Obama back and apologize. (Update: Obama won NC without my vote!!!!)


Starting my new job Monday morning at 8:30 am sharp. Excited, yet nervous a little.


This is kinda of random, but I never really liked (or had much taste) in people who stayed on Facebook and MySpace and everything else and never even glanced at the news. For instance, my roommate had no idea what was going on with the Olympic Torch, nor that Olympics was even going on this year. I wonder does she know if it's a leap year or even election year? Anyways...


For those who don't know...there was a HUGE cyclone in Myanmar last week. The current death toll is 22,000 and currently 41,00 people are missing. Imagine your whole town wiped out. Or your best friend long lost...possibly indefinitely. Truthfully, I had to look up Myanmar to see where it was. It's in Asia. I know it's miles and days away from where both you and me are, but just think about stability and safety we often take for granted and be thankful for them. A prayer for the people of Burma would be nice too.




Today I am thankful for:

the beautiful weather

a heavenly nap I had after my morning exam and time to actually nap and relax

feeling like me and my best friend can never have enough time to tell each other good news

my sis! she's so cool. i will miss her much

my ability to be patient, and not take things so damn seriously anymore

ciao.
